Where is SecretarySavings from Katy, Texas?

August 31st, 2017 at 08:48 am

She posted right before Harvey. I'm wondering if she's okay as Katy is only 29 miles west of Houston. I hope she's okay.

I got my bloodwork results back from my physical and it mostly looks good. My total cholesterol is 175; I would like to get it lower. My HDL to LDL ratio is 2.8, which is also very good. I'm eating adequate protein, my B levels are fine, and my Vitamin D levels are fine.

The only little problem is that my hemoglobin A1c is just one point elevated, which would indicate I'm in pre-diabetes range. I need to rein in my sugar habit; no more alcohol during dinner with dad, and will have to eliminate the sweet tooth fixes (dark chocolate or a cone) to fix that.

I also had a mammogram today with the new 3D technology.

Met my friend at the dog park yesterday and then had an ice tea with him at the Sandy Hook coffee shop.

I put the first coat of paint on the little roof over my front entry after scraping and sanding it all down. I'd like to get one more coat on it and call it a day, but there's possible rain today so may have to wait til tomorrow.

Dad has asked me to come down to his house on the Jersey shore next week because he discovered a pile of boxes the former tenant left in the basement and he needs help getting them out of there. After she stole a dozen or so of his things, I don't think he owes her any favors, though it's likely she didn't want this stuff if she hasn't already retrieved them.

I wonder how the car ride will go since dad and I had a little tiff about his driving last time this came up. Should I cave and let him drive, or should I ask again to drive and risk another confrontation?

I had another MS dinner program last night. My 2 favorite couples were there and I sat with one of them. This time the doctor speaker was someone who himself has MS, and I appreciated his candor in talking about his own personal experiences with the disease. He is 61 and runs a clinic up in Hartford

    I'd tell your Dad you will go with but only if you drive. Tell him ahead of time, so he isn't surprised!

    Agree with CCF! Clear guidelines avoid things that feel like ambush attacks - having probably been both the attacker and attackee in the past.

    Hope secretary is OK. I had to stop watching the coverage of the poor Texans. The minivan that was swept away with grandparents and grandkids was WAY too much me. Though I do admit to posting animal rescue videos found on Dodo to my FB page.

    It's too late for that. We already had the conversation. He asked me to go, I agreed.

    CNN did a morning show from Katy TX where flood waters were up to roof tops. Prayers for Secretary Saving and the millions in dire circumstances. Our city and surrounding region had a similar flood in 2013 and until you see it, you don't realize mere minutes and happenstance makes a difference between living and drowning. Incidentally, after 2 days in water...the stuff you thought important is ruined forever

    Have you tried using dates for sweet tooth fixes? A couple dates (soaked and pitted) a handful of walnuts, a 1/2 tbsp. of cacoa powder - food process for a few minutes, and you've got a brownie. Smile There's also this recipe (haven't tried yet) http://www.rhiansrecipes.com/2017/04/27/salted-caramel-adzuki-bean-brownies-vegan-gf/ (might do black beans instead)

    Thanks, FrugalTexan. I like the simplicity of your recipe better. I sometimes also just eat dried fruit, which I know I need to limit due to the sugar, but a fig, dried apricot or dried apricot or dried apple are my favorites.

    I like figs! They are hard to find here though.

    It's nice you are helping your dad.
