down to 200.8 pounds Dr. Alkhateeb is gonna be pissed

My mind is wandering from this to that and has been since I woke up.  Very unlike me to have my mind not focusing on one thing or another.  Even when it has slowed down to focus on something, something else intrudes almost immediately.  And it’s weird stuff, totally not stuff I would normally think about and so much weird stuff, I may actually be going crazy.  But I am gonna try to write this blog because it gives me something to focus on and I think that is what I need right now, something to actually focus on.


I stepped on the scale this morning… 200.8.  Just 5 pounds or so lighter than I want to be.  Low enough to get me in trouble with Dr. Alkhateeb at Mayo.  I’m just not hungry like I used to be.  I eat 2 pieces of pizza instead of 3 or 4, and I am full.  I get full quick.  It’s not like I set out to lose a lot of weight, just 5 or 10 pounds if I recall correctly.  Then it kept going.  Teresa is unhappy with my weight loss.  Dr. Alkhateeb is gonna lecture me and then put me back on hydro-cortisone to make me put on weight again.  Bah, as long as I don’t drop less than 200, I am gonna be happy.


I found the place in Rochester I want to live if I win Publishers Clearing House in 4 days.  Hey, I got as good of chance as anyone else.  So let me dream.  Anyhow, it’s a condo on top of the Downtown Hilton.  Price had dropped 150,000 dollars since I started looking at it.  Best thing is, it is across the street from Mayo, well part of Mayo at least.  That part of Mayo is connected to the rest of Mayo via skyway and subway.  So, it’s cool if you ask me.  The condo itself is stunning and the view is amazing.  But I need to win Publisher Clearing House to afford it.  Oh well, we shall see in a few days.


I feel pretty good right now.  Except for the damnable cough.  We bought an air purifier thinking it was allergies.  It has helped a little, but I still cough a lot.  Only at home.


My mom’s house is supposed to close on the 30th.  As I have said before, I don’t know anything about Indiana Real Estate, except that it is different than every other state.  Maybe they can close a loan in 30 actual days.  Since it goes thru private investors (I think) then they can do that.  It will be nice to hear from my mom that she has the keys.


I wish I lived closer and was in better health to help her and Jim move.  But Jim has lots of friends, so I am sure he will have plenty of assistance in moving stuff.


I don’t know where Thanksgiving is being held this year.  Don’t really care as long as we are there.  Jim doesnt think mom’s house will be ready in 2 weeks and I tend to agree with him on that.  Which will mean it will be at Ruby’s house again.  Which if fine be us.  Just as long as we get to eat.  Teresa will be cooking the Turkey and who knows what else.  And Ruby will take care of the rest.


Thanksgivingfest was a dream.  I really want to go, but there is no way we can swing it.  So, Sorry AJ especially and all the Gang.  I wish we could make it, but life doesn’t see us making it this year.
