Chubba Bubba Mondays: Step Foward

How was your week?  Because I gotta say, its been a damn good one for me.  The back pain continues to decline as does the swelling.  Last doctor's visit, I felt my doctor touch each point in my spine.  That's how much the swelling has decreased.

I am happy and excited to keep moving forward.

Meanwhile, this past weekend I purposely washed and dried my Farmer Joe Jeans on HOT.  And they're STILL too big.  Add to it, that the swelling in my hands is also down, and yesterday at work, my medium gloves kept bunching.

These are fun problems to have.

But best of all, is that I'm maintaining energy for house projects.  And even though I didn't finish the office haul-out last Saturday as planned, I still went ahead and bought my equinox gifts because I am a grown up and I can do that.

And dig this, the new plates are 22cm (almost 9in).  If I'd bought these last year, I would have also purchased the platters at 30cm (almost 12 in).  Where now, there's no need for honkin' big plates.  And that is very cool step forward.

Check them out.  I love them.  They make me so happy.

    And you're right. You're a grown woman. You can splurge and spend money whenever you want.
    My wife does...

  3. Very nice. I haven't bought plates in YEARS. Heck, I still use the plates I bought before I got married. Guess that makes them around 35 years old! I love Correlle. Or at least what Correlle USED to sell.

    Great job on the weight loss. I'm very happy for you. I went up a pound. Damn hormones! :)

  6. You go, girl! Sounds like you're doing great. Your hard work is rewarding you. I've been exercising steadily for this whole month and I have to say that I feel terrific. I should buy myself something, or pick up something fun for the house. I'm a grown woman, too, so I can do that! :)

      Glad you are feeling terrific. That's wonderful news. Thanks for sharing it.

      What fun thing are you thinking of getting?

  12. Glad to hear you're still doing well. I think it's a good idea for you to have stopped on the clear out before it pushed you to the point to exhaustion.

    I really like the dishwear. Very clean, crisp and elegant. Have a good week!
