Weird foot ailment

The strangest thing happened last night – I got up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water and my right foot felt weird – it felt like I was walking with a pebble in my shoe. But I was barefoot! I don’t know what in the world is causing that feeling. I felt around my foot and I can feel something inside my foot around the base of one of my toes. So, I’m going to have to give the doctor a call and order up some X-rays or MRIs and see what is there that shouldn’t be there, and find out what to do about it! That’s a scary thing, having something inside me that doesn’t belong there! When it comes to my health, I take things like this quite seriously! I hope it’s just a benign thing like a bone spur, so I can deal with it and get on with my life!

Muffins or bagels?

Several years ago the “big hype” was about how people who are concerned about their health should eat bagels for breakfast. Somehow bagels were considered to be “good for you.” The only way I could ever enjoy eating a bagel was if it was loaded up with cream cheese. I have to admit that the fat free cream cheese on the market is very tasty, so that health issue of too much fat in cream cheese is a moot point in this post. Fat free cream cheese on a bagel tastes pretty good. But I have noticed that it is very hard to get a nice soft bagel – most of them are about as hard as a rock! And to be honest, I really don’t enjoy eating rocks! And I’ve noticed that every time I eat a bagel, when I go look at myself in a mirror and smile there is a ton of bagel and cream cheese smiling back at me, stuck between my teeth! Not a pretty sight!

I much prefer eating muffins – they are softer and easier to eat and require no cream cheese. And muffins do not get stuck between my teeth! So if the choice is between a bagel and a muffin, give me a muffin! Unless, of course it is a crummy bran muffin that tastes terrible. I like lemon poppy seed muffins, or cranberry orange muffins the best!

I Knew It!

Sometimes being a female in the family can really bite. They still don’t think that I have a brain one in my head, nor do they believe that my head is actually located on my shoulders, much like where theirs is situated. I get so frustrated at times when I am trying to make a point or voice my opinion or tell a story, basically whenever I open my mouth around any of them.

Last night I was trying to tell my eldest brother that there are companies out there that offer life insurance with no medical exam necessary and they are good policies from reliable insurance reps. It wasn’t until I made him turn on and log on to his pc and I showed him several sites that were advertising these No Medical Exam Life Insurance Policies and showed him that once again I did know what I was talking about and that he may want to seriously check one of more of them out for his wife who is experiencing an overwhelming amount of health issues these past of years and doesn’t have a lick of insurance to her name.


Recently I was watching a morning news program for a few minutes and they were talking about healthy food. The expert of the day was telling the audience that the 100 calorie snack packs were not good for you… I don’t remember what the reason was because I immediately started remembering how a couple of months ago on the same show there was a different food expert who was raving about the 100 calorie snack packs. I don’t know if they are good or bad, I’m no expert, but I don’t make a habit of buying a lot and eating a lot of them.

I’ve Got The Monday Blues

Most people hate Mondays. I am certainly one of them!  The work week is way too long, the weekend is way to short! I really don’t have anything against Monday, as a day. It’s just that I get so nervous that I might not wake up to the alarm clock going off on Monday morning that I don’t sleep at all Sunday night.

I toss and turn and look at the clock about every forty-five minutes. So when the alarm finally DOES go off, I’m exhausted because I haven’t slept at all! And it seems like everyone around me is cranky on Mondays, which makes it hard to deal with, because I’m tired! Maybe they didn’t sleep either!?  I may as well face it; I think I’m just plain allergic to work!

Looking at the bright side
