My Week and Monthly Health Report

I'll get the unpleasantness out of the way first. To recap for the year - January 1 - 182.2 February 1 - 179.6 March 1 - 179.0 April 1 - 179.8 May 1 - 182.8 As you can see my weight isn't going anywhere. Obviously, the fruit and meal day alternatives haven't worked as well I hoped. So, I'm going back to my normal food days. There was one cheat day in the whole month when I was with my son and he bought me a fish sandwich from KwikTrip last week. Okay, now onto something more pleasant. My week. I'm coming to the end of Vendetta and should finish it this next week. I need to make certain I'm tying up all the loose ends. In that endeavor, I started reading it from the beginning. I'm glad I did. I found a whole section of duplicated text from the last time I was re-working it. I work on the computer until 3 PM. That's all my brain can handle. I'm totally exhausted by the time I get off the computer and sit down to watch television rather than write. I've started watching two familiar mysteries this past week. I've seen them before as many of you have too when they were first out. Columbo and Murder, She Wrote. I'm watching how these two sleuths solve their mysteries. If you're waiting for me to finish Vendetta so you can get your hands on it, thank you. I can tell you, you won't be disappointed. I'm biased. I happen to like my books. However, I couldn't stop reading it, even when I needed to rewrite, revise, and edit as I went along. I couldn't put it away without working on just one more chapter. I had help with writing this week. I haven't been to the Y since Tuesday. I woke to thunderstorms on Wednesday. I knew I wasn't going anywhere. I can't see the road to drive in the dark with headlights and streetlights adding glare to the road. Thursday was fog. Again, I need to see to drive. I didn't go yesterday because, after two days of not going and then having the weekend, I wouldn't have known what day today is. I still might not. Thank goodness the computer has the day and date so I can easily find out. I'm going to work on Vendetta after breakfast. I'm getting ready to have that now. I finished the notifications a short while ago and will finish the few I have now before I eat. On one other note. Yesterday was laundry day. I went to the laundromat. After what I went through last week with my grandson, I thought that was the better move. However, when I went to leave and started backing out of the parking space, I saw another person also backing out and stopped and waited for her to leave so I could. However, she wasn't paying attention and backed into me. She wasn't going fast so it amounted to a love tap on my bumper. There's some scraped paint. Not even a dent. She had the gall to yell at me about not hitting my horn. I never thought about my horn as I never use it. I find it annoying. She should have seen me in her mirrors. After she left, I went to the store. When I left, I turned into the driving lane at the same time another driver turned into the lane. I quickly moved out of the way. Maybe, I should have stayed home yesterday. Oh well, the clothes are washed and I have a little more food for the weekend. One question, is there a holiday on Monday? Just curious because I got paid today instead of Monday. I'm not complaining. Just unusual, especially since I never get paid on the weekend. Okay, that was my week and health report. Time to finish up here, eat, and get to work on Vendetta. I will have the thankful post later. Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. The Botanical Gardens. I'll be going again soon and will have new pictures.

We arrive at one point that our weight does not move anymore,I know it is frustrating. I liked the series of Columbo, I have watched them so many times. Also Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes. Today is a holiday here in Europe (and many parts of the world) it is Labor Day. I do not believe that Monday is a holiday.

I also watch Hercule Poirot and Sherlock Holmes when it comes up on TV sometimes. I much prefer the original Sherlock Holmes, we have the collection here at home,.

@Lady Duck I've never watched Hercule Poirot, though one day I intend to. I've seen Sherlock Holmes. The original is much better. I can't get into the current series on Netflix.

Columbo was one of my favorite shows, he was amazing! Vendetta will be finished soon, just like you planned! The accident in the parking lot, people usually try to blame someone else The 30th of April is called Arbor Day.

That's not a holiday that would change my Social Security payday. Yes, I expect it will be. I've been working on it since I left here earlier. I agree. Even though you know who did it, it's fun watching him find the person who did it.

I don't thinkit's a holiday for us... but with out government, who can tell for sure. I did find a list of holidays for the US, if you want to take a look, though.

Nope, not a government holiday, though I'm grateful for the list. The Derby is today. I like to watch that.

@just4him All the tires shops in the city are closed, though. Pretty and I had another blowout this afternoon while driving to have new front tires put on the car. *sigh* Luckily, AAA came and towed the car to a garage that will open Monday and replace them for us and then brought us home. Not a big deal, we weren't planning on going anywhere else this weekend anyway. I'm happy to help you.

@DaddyEvil I'm sorry all the tire shops were closed. AAA to the rescue. I'm glad it will get done on Monday. Thank you. I enjoyed the Derby.

I am watching Murder She Wrote right now and will watch Columbo when I am done. Both were good shows. Believe it or not I didn't watch them every week when they were on in their prime. Hope you get Vendetta finished. You have worked hard on it. Sorry the lady wasn't paying attention to you. It was clearly her fault whether you blew your horn or not. She should have been looking all the way around.

Both have unique ways of finding who did it. Yes, it will be finished soon. I'm taking a small break from it right now. Yes, she was at fault. I wasn't upset. No reason to call the police. I told her to just leave. She left with a few choice words as if it was my fault.

What a rude and annoying driver - to back into you and then try to blame you! Lucky she didn't do any significant damage. Glad the book is going so well! It is a bank holiday here (UK) on Monday but I don't think it is anywhere else.

At least you got home safe and sound. Somedays you just have to look out for other drivers.

I always look out for other drivers, which is why I stopped when I saw her backing out. I never expected her to just keep backing up. It wasn't necessary.

Thank you. I hope so too. No, there's no holiday tomorrow. So unusual to be paid on the weekend. Maybe SS has made changes I don't know about. I can never get into their site. Even with their new directions to do so, I couldn't get in.

Thank you. Tomorrow I go back to the Y. It rained all night and there's fog. I'm not driving in the dark in that. Good weather for the rest of the week. Then I should see my numbers go down.

Yes, it is. It isn't a little bit. I'm trying hard to get rid of the Obese status. I still have a lot to go before I'm back at my normal weight.

Sorry about the incidents while out yesterday...that sounds scary! It all seems to happen in the same day too. Glad you got the stuff done that you needed though. That's great about your work on your book. Sorry the scale is not moving as you'd hope....that can be very frustrating. I don't think it is a holiday....we got paid on Friday since the first was on weekend.

@just4him Oh okay, that makes sense then. We get paid on the 1st. But not sure why they'd pay earlier then if it wasn't a holiday
