Dapper Dude

I swore I wouldn't be one of those pet owners that dress their pets but I could not resist getting this costume for Bogey.

My mom is doing better. She's sitting and standing which is great news. It's just going to take time for her to heal. I just want her to be back home again. I've been avoiding going to the house but need to go there soon for mail and stuff.

Work is still fun but crazy. The kids are STILL commenting about my weight on occasion. One of the boys said "Miss Katie, you have two chins. One and two" Thanks for noticing S! I guess it's just the age but sheesh! It gets old after awhile. I wonder if some of the other heavier teachers get the same comments.

I got a new scale and actually I have two of them so I will do a giveaway for the other one soon.

That's about it for now. I lost my net book :-( in one of the rental cars I had. I am majorly bummed. I still haven't quite found my groove with this schedule. After 20+ years in Admin positions, teaching and walking 5 miles a day makes for a tired Katie J. I'm getting enough rest but I'm still battling the virus I got a month ago. People did warn me it would take awhile to adjust. Guess they weren't kidding !

Until next time...

My foot and ankle are sprained. Fortunately it's not broken or fractured. Thanks for the well wishes.

Here is the evidence LOL!

My mom is going to the rehab facility. Hopefully things will improve soon.

Hope you have a good weekend!

Run Me Over

I apparently have a black cloud following me. A parent dropping off their child ran over my foot with her car this morning. I'm at Urgent Care now. I don't think it's broken but it hurts like heck!!! I tried to pull it out from under the tire too so whole foot is sore. I will post more once I know more.

Falling Apart

On Monday morning around 5:30 a.m, my mom fell and broke her back. I'm at the hospital now and was here all day yesterday as well. She is in a lot of pain and most likely will have to go to a rehab facility to heal.

Meanwhile, my car was ready yesterday and I picked it up but the stereo and digital display are not working. I'm pissed off as you can imagine. Who wants to deal with that sh*t. I was upset and tried not to show it too much but they knew. They comped me some gas which was nice. I just hope they fix it quickly.

I will go back to work tomorrow. I actually miss the kids! Their happy sweet faces would be a nice change of scenery. Until next time...

Cavalier Katie

Good morning my friends! Man oh man I miss blogging. I swear my brain thinks in blog post form now. It's been a wild ride the last month but I finally feel like things are settling down a bit. I am still on antibiotics for the ear and sinus infection. Those little people have super germs I tell ya. I have not been that sick in a long time.

Speaking of, I went to the doctor when I was sick and she ran some blood tests for blood sugar, cholesterol, etc. The results were not as good as before. I had reduced my insulin and was not taking my cholesterol pill and it showed. Dr. M said I was being cavalier about my health and basically scolded me. In my desire to get off the meds, I prematurely lowered the amount of medications and it backfired. The one good note about my health was my weight. I am actually at 243 which means I lost 4 lbs. in September. That means I have lost a total of 72 lbs!! That is at least a 2nd grader.  She said that this was the lowest weight on record since I have been seeing her which has been at least 6-7 years. She did not want to discount the weight loss but for my age my numbers need adjusting. She said I was too young to have those readings.Meanwhile, I am back on the Lipitor and adjusted my insulin. I still need to do one more blood test and also get a pap smear and mammogram. I am overdue for both.

Work has been taxing but very fun. One of the teachers even commented that I have a fan club. They are just so cute and fun. I am planning on getting some ECE units (Early Childhood Education) so I can teach preschool. I prefer the 4 year olds then the 3 year olds. I am going to take the classes online.

I'll leave you with a picture of Bogey. He was playing fetch with me and then kitty flopped on the floor.

Until next time...
