It’s a misty hazy day. I went for a brisk walk early this morning in the damp air. It felt good to be out there alone. There are great walking paths here. I’m feeling good. I started my keto / intermittent fasting yesterday. Already I’m feeling better and my gut feels way better. I haven’t eaten anything since 6pm yesterday. I’m a little hungry and a bit lightheaded but nothing major. I am having black coffee ( normally I would add milk to it.) My goal is to fast 20 hours and eat one meal / snacks over four hours. Since I’m not going out for work or appointments this is the ideal time to do it.
My ex was supposed to have a CT scan yesterday but my daughter hasn’t gotten any news of results. I would think a biopsy would be in order to accurately diagnose the suspected lymphoma but I believe he’s going to some doctor in Havana which I’m guessing won’t exactly be top notch. Not my monkeys, not my circus..... but, still.
It’s very hazy outside as I look out the front window facing East. A lot of daffodils are up and tulips are just starting to bloom.
Mike was just out here ( came out of the office hole) obsessing and semi ranting about money and said I’m going to learn about spending once my ( lower than my current salary) retirement checks kick in. I just looked at him like he’s an anteater and didn’t say anything. Uh, hello...I’m the one paying the house and car off, let’s not fucking forget that. I fully intend to get another job when this pandemic clusterfuck is over. He’s the one with the 35% salary cut who hasn’t bothered considering finding another job. I told him to shut up and walk away or I’d kick him in the balls. He laughed and went back to his office. Of all the fucking nerve. Kiss my ass. I’ve got skills and smarts and I’ll do just fine.
Mike is in his office on a phone meeting with his high school sports editor on speaker phone. They’re both very loud and I can hear everything although I’m two rooms and a hall away. They’re talking about Trubisky. We’re going to order fish fry take out meals for dinner from Sammy’s Bar & Grill here in town. I’ll have the broiled cod, a salad and cole slaw to avoid carbs but I’m still looking forward to it. Mike should be doing keto too. He’s diabetic for heavens sake and starting to have problems ( pain and numbness) with his feet. No amount of nudging, reminding or nagging from me makes any difference. Every day I ask him to go walk with me and he will not so I just go alone. You can drag a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.
I’ve been getting some occasional phishing scam emails in my comcast account the last month which I’ve just deleted and ignored. Yesterday and today I got two scary ones with some personal information and threats. Serious shit. WTF? I took the time and changed all my passwords. This is bullshit.
I’m doing laundry-2loads of colors, 2 loads of whites. I made some hard-boiled eggs, answered a couple school emails, took the recycling out, took my nail polish off. I just found out that Sammy’s only has their fish special on Friday’s ( Catholic crap) so will have to move that to tomorrow’s agenda🤗. It appears the sun is trying to come out now. I’m going to go practice for a while before the afternoon Zooms.
