I haven’t had much to write about in regards to food because we haven’t been properly cooking for a while. Family meals were very accommodating, even going past my expectations. New Year’s eve we spent at Shawn’s parent’s house playing Wii sports and eating food. Shawn’s Mom made an additional batch of her sausage balls using fake sausage! They tasted the same as last year when we ate the meat variety Day after Christmas we had egg casserole (no meat) and potatoes at Shawn’s sister’s house. We ate lots of food and I’d guess I gained at least 5 lbs if not more. Oh well.
It’s six days until our trip to Disney World. I’ve put in a hold on our mail, bought an automatic pet bowl for Molly and planned as much as I can tolerate. We don’t have any dining reservations because neither of us what to commit to a particular park each day. We may regret this, but we’ll learn from whatever happens. We did get the dining plan added to our tickets, so we don’t have to fret over shelling out so much money for meals while there. I’m anxious to say the least. It’s also been almost ten years since I last flew on a plane.
I got the neck pain again from the bed bowing down the center. Our tempur-pedic mattress is fabulous, but our Ikea bedframe has trouble supporting it (the same way our platform bed before it did). We have propped up the center beam with a crate and a bunch of phone books, but the top book became crimped, so the bed bowed again. It’s fixed now using old shelves, but the damage was done on my neck. I resorted to a chiropractor on 12/29. He “cracked” neck and back stuff, which initially hurt. Took x-rays and put me on a machine that made my back muscles spazm. The next day I ached, but by Friday I felt so much better! Friday he showed me my x-ray results and my spine is a zig-zag, my neck is inverted as if I had been in a car accident (he said), but I can’t think of anything recent that would have caused that. I’ll be going a lot for a while to fix all this, which I expect to fix many of the other problems I’ve been having. My head congestion has improved already after two visits. Unfortunately it all drained down my throat last night though.
Between this and the dental work I still need done, it’s going to be an expensive year. Too bad my health insurance doesn’t cover more of it. It almost makes me regret the Disney trip, but that can’t be helped now, so I shall just relax and have fun!
