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!! 😀 😀

Lighting Weekend & Golf!

Hey Everyone!

I had a heck of a weekend. Friday my wife said she wanted to replace the kitchen ceiling fans and lights. I didn’t want to do any of that since they all worked, and we don’t have the money for any big issues if they arise.

In the process of taking those two lights down she wanted me to replace the light over the sink, and move the fan in the dining room to the other side of the dining room and get a new light there as well. In total it came to four new lights and moving a fifth. It was a long Friday evening, and it carried into Saturday morning.

This is the fan from the dining room moving to it’s new location.

Here is where it came from. More on this spot later.

Saturday morning kept me busy and I had to stop to head out to the golf outing!

The night before my co-worker and I went to the driving range and hit a bucket of balls.

The weather was great Saturday and my team was ready to do a mediocre job haha. 😀 Here is my golf cart mate Jake, he works third shift and is the son of the lady in accounting.

My dad is hitting here, and then we had another guy in sales on our scramble team.

I decided to run to the sports store in town and get a nice shirt, glove, and pants. Lastly before my dad and I headed out we grabbed a split 6 pack for the day.

12

I got home fully expecting to get the rest of the lights up and going. I put the fan up and the new light up, only to find out that they didn’t turn on… :/ I fiddled with the both of them until I had to stop. It was very frustrating.

That took us straight into Sunday where I worked on them again. I stopped part way though because I ran out of knowledge and patience. I called my dad over and we did end up getting the fan working on the switch. I haven’t put it back up because we still can’t get the new dining room light working. It is the only light, that I know of, that is running on the only knob and tube wire run that we have in the house. I have tried every combination that I can think of and something must be disconnected somewhere. Knob and tube wiring is not up to any code anymore because it is not grounded, so I don’t think any real electrician will wok on it without replacing it. That would mean tearing up my ceiling and wall possibly and I don’t want to or have the money to do that. So I have to find someone willing to help me out and until then my dining room will be a mess.

In other news I got work today that I have an interview for my boss’s job tomorrow at 2pm.  I may not be posting if I am still preparing for that. I’ll be a bit nervous and figuring things out. It would be a huge leap for me and the job description looks scary but I think I could handle it if it came down to it. Wish me luck! If I don’t get this job which is very possible, I hope to have the ability to move into my co-workers job.

That is all for me today, I hope you have a great Monday! I’ll see you tomorrow or Wednesday! 😀 😀

 

Food Poisoning!

Hey Everyone!

So. Last week. Friday was awful.

My wife was sick and I wasn’t feeling well. That is about where we left it. About 10 minutes after I finished that post, I left work. I stopped at my mom’s house and snagged some Gatorade, per my wife’s request. About 30 minutes after I made it home I got pretty violently ill. My wife and I were in the same boat and couldn’t do anything, other than lay there and try not to die lol. We spoke about how it was no coincidence that we both had the same thing going on at the same time. We determined through process of elimination that we had food poisoning from old bacon! This is the first time bacon has ever let me down in life. Not pleased. 😡

We Started feeling better the next morning for the most part. We were dehydrated and hungry from not being able to keep anything down the day before. We were also scared to eat anything out of fear of getting sick again. We ended up being Ok for the most part. Saturday was spent re cooperating.

Sunday I had two softball games. One at 12:45pm and the other right after at 2:00pm. It started pouring down rain during the first one. It started Thundering during the second one, before clearing up and being humid as all hell. It was a long couple of games but we all played fairly well, and won both games. The only games we have lost this season were the games that I couldn’t attend, so I keep making the joke that I’m the chosen player and that they can’t win without me lol.I’ll use that until we lose. 😀

Since we still hadn’t eaten a real meal since Thursday night, we went out to Olive Garden for dinner. That got us back on track. Work is back on track this morning as well. I’m just glad we are both over everything now.

I hope you all had a great weekend and didn’t have food poisoning. XD Have a great Monday and I’ll be back again tomorrow! 😀 😀
