Good Wednesday morning to all in my lot land!

it is Wednesday morning; I may be writing this at almost 7 am but have been up since 1 this morning. i got a good sleep from 4:30 yesterday afternoon. I have a few things planned for today. It is yet again time for another every two-week injection which I am responding very well to for the reason I get it. I do feel a lot better with it. It is 45 minutes later at 10 is today instead of 9:15 am and I will be catching a ride with my Favorite Uncle! After the shot, i will be going up the highway a bit and getting a nonfasting blood test to check my kidney function that i got the papers in the mail and it needs to be done for Friday for my heart doctor visit. When I come home, i will do laundry which I think I need to do three loads today.I put one load in the washer but will wait until i get home to do the rest of it. I did take out the trash early this morning for pickup on Thursday morning. I like to do everything I do early in the morning! i am cooking again today. Just not sure what recipe i am going to cook or if I will heat something i bought prepared. I will see, I am not sure yet! I may finish my chicken casserole for lunch. i had it for breakfast and lunch and dinner yesterday and have it for breakfast today. I think I will eat the rest for lunch and have a new meal for dinner! What are you having for dinner if you know yet? What are you planning on doing today? Anything exciting? Do you have anything you know you have to do frequently like my injections that you must go regardless of weather outdoors or if you don't feel well or are too tired when you have a cold?

I think dumplings and noodles sound great! I have never attempted to cook dumplings. I would have to find a recipe as I have no idea how they are made. But know they are yummy! I have cooked many noodles as i make many pasta recipes. I buy pasta in multiple boxes at a time when I get low on them

@Marty1 dumplings are easy to make. You can use canned biscuits to do dumplings as well.

I slept for the first night well, for first time since last week. Lately, i have been not falling asleep until 9-10 at night but was lucky i fell asleep right away last night! I might have something else for lunch and have the chicken casserole tomorrow! i am kind of bored of having the same meal two or three times a day! hope your day is superb!

Good morning! I just shared my fitness log and am about to go tidy up the house. I can't quite think of the rest of the day but I figure after that I can focus better to plan my day! I hope all the blood work/tests come back good for you!

@Corbin5 it does sound like a healthier option for him. Much healthier than if he added pepperoni or sausage to his portion.I never tasted pineapple on pizza. i am sure i would find it yummy, and I have pineapple as a favorite fruit

I ended up with Oreo cheesecake from Burger King for dinner as I took a three-hour nap and did not wake up until 4 in the afternoon, so no time to cook. I Was full from lunch so decided on cheesecake! From what you say you eat i am sure dinner will be yummy at your home tonight whatever you choose to make!

Chicken casserole is good, I am glad that you decided to cook again today. My husband has a weekly therapy at the hospital and he must go regardless of the weather. It would be nice to skip when it's cold or it rains.

@LadyDuck I agree it was very, very cold the last two times. Today was feeling a lot warmer than we have had lately. I am hoping it will be like Nurse Elena said might happen in that i would only have to go once a month that was old to me the end of last May so who knows when?

From 2000-2002 i had to get a blood test almost weekly for the blood thinner i took. i also had another time years before that for an antipsychotic i had to get a blood test weekly before i would get the medicine as it makes white blood cells possibly get too low Think it was called Clozaril. i had a blood test today, but everybody had on masks, and i asked why and they did so many were sick they were trying not to get sick themselves! I heard on the evening news the flu is really bad this year

Glad you were able to get a coffee maker so that you can have your morning coffee! Did you have any today? Maybe make an instant cup? Or did it break after you had some for the morning?

Well, I had an appointment this morning with my pain management doctor, and I have to see him once a month. If you don't go you don't get your pain medication because they can't just call it in to the pharmacy. So I don't have anything that I could miss and have it mess me up like you if you missed your injections. I mean no pain medicine wouldn't feel good, but we both know anything for a mental illness is far more important. And every time I go for the pain management they make you take a urine test. So you have to go with a full bladder, which is sometimes very uncomfortable!

I hope your appointment went well with your pain management doctor. I have to see my psychiatrist first before he will usually prescribe medicine. Once they could not see for me when I needed to be seen and when I got in they had to cancel for another two weeks, so they did call in the one medicine i would not have enough of it. Yes, mental illness is important. I am in a phase of it called recovery, and i am doing much better now than i was doing around this time last year. I will be attending a psychiatric rehab sometime soon which will really help me get better!

Hey there, You have a busy, busy day ahead! I hope you take a great care of.yourself, as ypu probably do, judging by what you say. Do you enjoy cooking? It's somehow too.complex for me, but I like it! I can only do the easy recipes though. Well, work is somehow related to what you say. No matter if I'm sick, if it's raining, if there is a rainstorm: I have to go to work every week day. Have a great time!
