Just got the thumbs up from my new doctor, got fully registered as a "Genuine" American Citizen at the DMV, had my knee x-rayed and now I am off for some sleep. I will have to go get the screaming little ball of terror (Rufus) out of his room and take him to bed with me.

I have an Angel Flight mission today. I am flying a mother and her 4 year old daughter from UCLA to meet another pilot who will get them to the Bay Area.

I'm taking a break from cooking dinner for 25 or so. DH is doing a quick two-day program with his teachers. He got a drone and they're out playing with it and flying kites :somehow this will teach them about light :lol)

So I'm working on two pans of baked pasta - one with chicken and Alfredo sauce and one with Italian sausage and marinara sauce, fortified with veggies. We'll also have salad and garlic bread sticks. One of the teachers made chocolate cake for dessert.

I'm just so durn happy you're feeling up to cooking for all those people GG! I hope they all appreciate the wonderful sounding meals!

I got off the scale this morning to a huge reward after being on this very low carb diet for 6 weeks. I'm down 20 lbs, so that's a lot of weight off the bum knee. It's feeling better and so am I.

PF..I didn't know you were not born in the USA?

Wow, sounds like everyone has some pretty big things going on today!

I am venturing outside for the first time in about 5 days. I have had a bad cold and my immune system is really down because of all the infections lately so I have had to stay in with little contact with the outside world.

I am picking Kay up and we are doing a small Costco trip, having dinner there and then going to Michael's. I may have to wear my mask if my breathing gets bad but I am getting used to wearing it in public and people don't look at me too funny anymore.

They are probably looking and thinking "That woman walks with a cane, wears a mask and two finger splints she has enough problems without me staring at her!" Kay wants me to use the Costco Power cart but I am not ready for that quite yet!

Wow, Kay...congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment in such a short period of time. I could stand to lose about 15 - care to share any tips?

Awww, thanks Cheryl. This diet has been called lots of names thru my battle of the bulge, nearly all my life. It just means staying away from most carbs. I include many low carb veggies, but no veggie starches at all, no flour, no sugar. My white wine has only 2 carbs per glass.
I do fine adding carbs to SC's meals..doesn't bother me at all.

Kayelle, I am proud of you. And I will use you as an inspiration.

I have to get weight off for my knee, back...well everything! I have started doing stretches and am feeling much better that way but do need to get working on my weight.

So nice of you to say LP. I have a lot more to go, but I'm determined to get this weight off of this knee. I want to avoid a knee replacement if possible, but if not, I sure don't want the extra weight to try and heal a knee replacement when it's time. I really think I'm more motivated now, as it's a matter of health.
