Dreary, dreary, dreary day! Our snow last night changed into rain this morning. Now everything is a mushy, slushy mess. I cannot remember a January that was so like March in terms of rain. Less shoveling, though, so that is good.
I wanted a nice comforting breakfast today, so I made up some protein waffles with warm apple topping.
After working for the morning, it was back to the eye doc today for a checkup on the old peepers!
I am about 95% back to normal and can start tapering down the steroid drops and be done in about a week. We may never figure out what could be causing the allergic reaction, but for now it is trial and error. I have been okay wearing my contacts, so it doesn’t appear to be an issue with that at least. Plus, my eyes are more red when I wake up. Pixie does not sleep in our bedroom due to John’s allergies, so that probably rules her out. Time to play detective. This whole episode has set me back a lot. The lab work alone was over $600, although I think I have a discounted pay on that for self-pay (I hope, if I read the bill correctly). Crazy. Guess I will be working a few Saturdays to catch that up. So, hair loss, dry skin, weight gain are all symptoms of perimenopause. Hooray…
I came home for lunch. Leftover Saag Paneer. I need to try to make this at home.
We are trying to eat up as much stuff in the fridge as we can before vacation! Work went by pretty quickly today. I took a break to make the lattes today. That meant a secret Friday ingredient!
Plus a couple pieces of chocolate.
Both of us had mishmash dinners tonight to use up leftovers. Mine was cooked beef that I mixed with some taco seasoning and topped with a little sour cream.
After dinner, I went out shopping looking for some capri length pants for Florida. I normally don’t buy capris unless they are for short people. Otherwise they just look like highwaters. 🙄 Then, there is just the annoyance of shopping for something and getting frustrated finding the right fit. Ugh. I did not enjoy shopping so much tonight, but I did find a pair of capris for shorties! Thank goodness for JCPenney and their petite department -although I am feeling anything but petite in any form right now. Plus I got a top for $8 and another pair of comfy relaxing pants to wear.
Now is snack time and watching the rest of this season of Downton Abbey! John is enjoying it as well, so now we have a show to watch together.
