Screening Day!

Hey Everyone!

I had my biometric screening this morning, and haven’t been feeling ‘it’ today. I had to fast for a long time and didn’t even get to eat until about now. My results came back, as expected. Everything that should be low is high and everything that should be high, is low. I think I knew that going in, and I’m ok with it. I now have my fact sheet that I can bring with me to the doctor. I, with any luck, will be able to get some medicine to regulate my stuff. Taking a pill everyday, until I die, isn’t ideal but it doesn’t seem like it will get better. So it may be time to bite the bullet and let something external help me with my health goals.

I have been back on my diet game a little bit lately. I started around 230 pounds again, and am down to about 224 currently. I again m just watching what I eat and the amount of times I eat per day. I have been eating instant oatmeal for breakfast, a Lean Cuisine meal for lunch and a somewhat normal dinner. I have cut out snacking almost entirely unless I can’t take it then I only want things like nuts, or juice. I think that paired with heart meds would make me feel a lot better.

In other news I have an electrician in mind for my lighting issues at home. They are a legitimate company and I hope they also don’t blow me off. They are out of state, I’m not sure that matters, but they seem like they have their stuff together better than the other guy who still hasn’t contacted me. I actually have to call them back to see when they have me penciled in.

That is all for me today! I hope you all have a great day, and I’ll see you all again tomorrow!! 😀 😀

Wedding & Productive Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

I would like to start off by saying sorry for missing Friday’s post. Whoopsies! In all seriousness I didn’t for get I was tasked with a really difficult project. It has all been sorted out as of this morning but it was something I was not very familiar with, so it took a while. It was a macro enabled Excel sheet that got all jacked up from the latest Office update. I has to go through the VBA code with the guy who wrote it and figure out what we could do. It really did take all day haha.

Secondly I want to send a shout out to Riley, from Riley’s Backpack! A while back you might remember him and his friends wanted to raise enough money on their Go Fund Me page to renew their domain and keep it ad free. I helped them out with what I could, and in return He send me a hand written letter. I wanted to say thank you and let you know you did indeed get my name correct haha 😀

Saturday the little family and I went to a wedding! It was not just any wedding, it was her father’s wedding to his long time girlfriend. They now have a baby boy well over one year old and finally got hitched. You can see all three of them below.

I know it isn’t the best picture but our little buddy kept getting fussy and we did end up leaving sooner than we intended to. It was a quaint little wedding in a nice Catholic church. The reception was on the lake in a really nice dining hall. The trip was a bit lengthy and I wasn’t super fond of that but it was all worth it.

Before we went to the wedding we stopped for lunch at my wife’s grandparent’s house. He had pumpkins waiting for him and wanted pictures with him up on his tractor. So that is what went down. Here is a shot of Everett Hugh and his great grandfather Francis Hugh!

Once we got home that evening we hit the hay.

Sunday started out pretty lazy, as intended, but wound up being quite productive. We didn’t quite have a frost but it was damn close. We had some morning coffee from our new coffee bar, and watched Netflix in our pajamas. We did have quite a bit to do and honestly got most of it done. We had your standard weekend cleaning, on top of laundry since we were gone the whole day before. I took out all the trash, hung Halloween lights, and mowed the grass. Later in the day I had a lady come look at the pellet stove I am selling, and I hope to hear back from her soon. My parents came over and brought Chinese for dinner. That was a great way to round out the weekend.

On a, probably over protective note, our boy has what looks like a small red-ish rash looking spot on his chin. Since we were around a bunch of people recently we don’t want him to have anything wrong with him. You hear all of the horror stories about babies getting bad viruses and we really hope it is nothing. I think I’ll call the doctor after lunch.

Again I apologies for missing Friday but I’ll be back again tomorrow. I’ll see you then! 😀 😀

Short Day!

Hey There!

The title is a bit misleading. I don’t have any shorter of a day, I just started earlier. I came in to work at 6 this morning rather than 8. So I’ll be out of here by 2:30pm woo! That being said I don’t have a ton of time to push out a large post.

I just saw on my Ingress scanner that an Enlightened agent is currently taking out all our portals in town. So first thing first, I’m leaving work and cleaning up his mess. Once I get home I’ll pull something out of the freezer to get ready for dinner. Next I’ll get into some comfy clothes, since its cold and rainy here today, and play a few games.

My friend told me to download Heroes of the Storm, so I did that last night. I’ll be giving that a whirl tonight. We will then venture on to playing a few games of Rainbow 6: Siege. Side note, I didn’t know that the “Operators” in that game came with a full backstory. Its great to see companies really taking the time to make a complete experience in a game.

Friday night after work my wife and I are going to check out, yest another house. This set up will be a bit different as it is for sale by owner. I really hope we find something soon. I swear we have seen every house in the area, and yet nothing that would be practical. I still have hope and we have a pre-approval until the end of November. That hope will stay with me as long as I feel like we won’t run out of time, since I really don’t want to apply for a pre-approval again. With the winter months coming though it gets scary because a lot of people stop selling until spring and my god we don’t want that.

Over this weekend my weird family will celebrate Christmas with my grandparents since they travel to Florida for the winter months. It is very weird but nice to see everyone and celebrate a holiday like Christmas early. My wife and I will spend the night out that way because we have a baby shower that next day for her brother and his wife. They are due in November.

Let me know what plans you have for this weekend, I’d love to see what everyone is up to.

Until tomorrow! 😀 😀

Health Fair & House Search

Hey there!

So, yesterday my company provided a health fair. They did a weight and height check first and then pricked our fingers. They took a small sample of blood and threw it in a machine, to check our cholesterol. While they were waiting for that to process they checked our blood pressure.

My blood pressure was normal and so was my blood sugar. My cholesterol was high. I am missing some good cholesterol (HDL) and I have too much bad cholesterol (LDL) This really means that I need to eat better and exercise. To work on my weight a little bit I will cut out the carbs (breads and things) in my breakfast and I won’t snack and drink pop. That should help all around. During the winter months a few guys at work rent a gym and play basketball on Sundays. I will join them again this year and get some exercise that way. This all together should help my heath.

After the screening they had healthy snacks and drinks for everyone since we had to fast for 12 hours to get accurate readings. Then it was back to work as usual.

As far as the house search is concerned , we are hopefully looking at another house in a quiet neighborhood tonight. This is less move in ready but is at a much better price point. With hopefully only minimal work we could have it the way we want it. My wife is concerned with the size of the kitchen. I am worried about the floors under the ugly carpet and the wood paneling on the walls. These issues would come second to anything major like electrical or plumbing. The yard is big and mostly fenced in. We would almost just want another fence because this one may be too short, and our dog would leave.

Some of the other houses we have been looking at all just have really small bedrooms and are missing some other key features. I’ll keep you all posted.

That is all for today I guess, short and simple. I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀
