Hot Diggity!!

Well, I've had no luck recovering my fitbit band that somehow got misplaced while I was recharging the  innards and doing my spring cleaning the other week. So- as I was planning on getting a new one anyway(it was a dull slate blue and looked terrible with everything I own) I just went ahead and ordered a new band in black. Tough decision between the black and the Hot Pink one- but I can get the pink for my anniversary prezzie next month. The black will go better with my outfits for work.

I weighed myself this morning and I somehow managed to lose another 1.6 lb despite eating a huge Philly cheesesteak sammich and a slice each of pumpkin and pecan pie I made for the sammich swap we have in our department every three or four months.
That just gos to show if you eat smart the rest of the week you most certainly CAN have a lovely  free meal and treat yourself to a couple of (insert your fav treat food here) every week.

My headache has eased up a bit- but is still there. My GP sent me to a Nose Throat and Ear specialist who ran some tests which came back negative for any problems with my sinuses being the culprit. Next is a visit to the  Neurologist and an MRI to see if I have a brain. Hahaha....

The doctor told me to stop taking any kind of OTC medications for my headaches until the MRI was done so any problems wouldn't be masked. It's been just over three weeks now.  Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I just stopped taking ALL my medications. Then I think about how bad the Acid Reflux and ulcer was and the headaches and dizziness from the high blood pressure and the crazy psychopathic tendencies with the Menopause and chunk that idea right out of the window.

It's been a 10 year journey trying to get my self sorted out and I cant throw it away now.

Okay- well......Now for other stuff.

I reread Michael's book " Except for His Wings" last weekend.  It was on my mind for a few days before- certain phrases kept popping into my head and so last weekend I pulled out my Kindle and re-read it. And it was just as good the second time round- even this close to having read it the first time. It made me feel there is hope for this world- and there is a reason for even the bad things that happen in or lives or the things we dont understand.  It brought a bit of my optimism back when it was really starting to flag.
I also read The Serial Killer's Wife. That was also a feel good didn't end the way I thought it would when it started out and that was a good thing. 
- altho I did guess who the villain was halfway thru(well, sort of)- and there was a twist to that as well.
One thing I have learned.......Books are like Artwork- ten people can read a book or look at a piece of art and have totally different inspirations, opinions and thoughts from/of them.

So- today's plan is to get the kitchen cleaned up before hubby gets up- then make the 60+ mile trip to Le Parents to pick up our packages and have a nice visit with them.....then pick up milk and sammich fixin's from Tesco- and then come back and do a couple loads of laundry.
.........and Play Minecraft.

Still mulling over that Minecraft Blog/Vlog. Maybe one a week...or every other week.
Still Mulling...........

I have had my Fitbit since Christmas of 2014 and I have already worn out two bands. (I am also rough on shoes.) My major complaint about the Fitbit is that it has to be taken out of its band in order to be recharged and that it has to be recharged quite regularly. I wanted to get my mother one, but she has such problems with arthritis that she would not be able to deal with the constant manipulation of the gadget.
