Thats a good idea, Jenn - I'll try that if the situation comes up again. Usually when we have to eat out due to unforeseen circumstances we find a steak house - but this time it didn't work out that way.
Note: sushi causes water retention!!!! Up to 183.8 this morning and feeling squishy! I wish I could wring myself out like a wet towel! The sushi was awesome though. I got shrimp topped with mango! yum............... and then apple pie for dessert. The calories aren't that bad, but it is totally NOT primal and NOT the best choice for my needs. But I figure - I eat dessert so rarely I'm not going to beat myself up over it. There is one peice left for both of us and then it is gone............ and I probably won't have another peice of pie for another year. It doesn't help with my goals, but, it helps with my constant craving for apple pie!
WARNING: Non primal, boring life stuff...........
Have to go in to the office early today and work a longer day than normal. I've been given more stuff to do and its requiring more time - good for the paycheck. Doc has to get re-certified and part of the requirements are now chart reviews on 25 patients who were seen in the last calendar year. Once he gives me the list of patients its my job to complete all the necessary paperwork for the chart reviews. I like doing that sort of stuff - hunting for the info and filling out the forms. Thats pretty much what I did as a research coordinator - 'cept I also had to see study patients, take vitals, blood and urine samples, process and send the samples to labs........... it was a fun job when we could find qualified study patients. Anyway - I'm looking forward to doing this. It will take a while to complete. I'm also going through 30 years of paperwork that has accumulated since doc opened his practice. Figuring out what needs to be saved - scan it into the system - and shred the papers. I'm barely started with that task. Bottom line - I need to plan on working about 6 hours a day now - maybe even adding in fridays when I'm not taking mom shopping.
Saw MIL last night. She's getting thin, but looks good otherwise. She has about 30% of hearing even when wearing her hearing aids - and her eyesight is very poor. She has Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma. So the light is dim, and she sees as if looking through swiss cheese. It pretty hard to talk to her - you have to yell, and then sometimes she doesn't know who's talking to her. She's so darn sweet though........... I just love the dickens out of her!
Zeus discovered while we were on vacation that the little sting he gets from the invisible fence isn't enough to keep him in the yard anymore!!! so for the past 2 weeks we have been hearing from the neighbors that he's out in the front wandering around and barking at passing cars. He only does this when we leave. So, we bought a new reciever, thinking maybe the old one was giving out - that didn't work. Last night we widened the fence barrier so he gets the signal sooner and gets zapped longer if he chooses to enter the NO ZONE! This puts the zap zone so wide that he can't go by the garage side of the house without getting zapped. I need to take him outside and teach him the new boundaries. I will have to do that before I leave for work today.
Its only 7:45 and I'm thinking its time to go shower and get to the office. I need to get my stuff done before the dietician comes in cuz we share work space. She starts at 12:30 on Thursdays. I'd like to get a lot done today so I should get started. But first I'll catch up on some journals
