Packing to return to minus a million degrees F/C below zero. Weeping copious tears. The drag marks on the tarmack will be mine.

The hospital always puts me on a salt free diet. I take my own salt. I don't use much salt, but I cannot eat eggs without salt, so I am only getting maybe 15 grains of salt per day. I don't use it on anything else.
I don't eat much salt either, but no-salt food is bland. Next visit, I'm making up a tiny condiment and med package. The arguments over my medications were absurd. Most were due to the Doctor's lack of knowledge of new medications.

You know, Cat, there is no rule that says you have to keep up with everyone's posts, or post every day Just do what you can as you're able to and don't worry about what or how much you're reading here. We want you to take care of yourself first.

I started doing that, too. I even take my own Rx meds while I'm there - the entire dozen. They tell me I can't, but what are they gonna do? Throw me out? :-D So I tell them so they can chart it, but I need my meds on a specific schedule, so they've learned to deal with it.

Packing? I didn't even know you went anywhere
I must have missed when you were packing the first time.

Collard greens - done (finally)
Yellow squash - done
Portabella mushrooms - done
Baby bella mushrooms - not started yet
Dishes, pots, utinsils - NOT yet

Me, I'm not done yet, but I am taking a break.

Dinner will be a combination of the recently prepared dishes, with a few finishing touches.

I'm waiting for this afternoon to check and see if Walmart got authorization to renew my prescriptions. If so I'll make another trip.

My doctor's office isn't as sharp about this as I would like. Last month, a renewal was finally given, but causing me to be without that medication for 4 days. Not good for a medication that you're not supposed to stop abruptly. I really noticed the lack. I'm glad all the holidays are over. Maybe I can get things set up so I don't have to do without meds when I need them.

There! I managed to get what I'm doing, my what's for dinner and petty vent posts all combined into one post.

Try it again. Pick it up and open on a new page if this doesn't work. He's gotten really modern with his historical pics. Now in color, and Marilyn Monroe is on the first page.

I just got back from the grocery store. As I was strolling the aisles I had a taste for some jalapeno nachos or similar, so picked up some Tostitos chips. That will be lunch here shortly. Maybe I'll root around for other stuff to add.
And I ran into a buddy and got the local weather report, lol.
Turns out the city we are associated with by proximity, Erie, is leading the nation in cities with the most snowfall this winter. And of course my town gets more snow than Erie's airport, where they measure at. We're beating cities in Alaska even.
Interesting. I thought we had a lot. Over 6 ft so far.

Holy crap! That's a lot of snow. I'd move.
