- Half pound burger on an oopsie roll with onions, lettuce, tomato, mustard, mayo and of course low carb ketchup

Yesterday was my eight month anniversary with Angie. She is the most amazing person that I could ever dream of finding! We watched a movie on Starz because it got too late to go to the video store, plus she has to work early this morning. I made her a cute little hand stitched embroidery and it's just lovely. It's quirky and cute and says "love birds" on it with two birds and is heart-shaped with little embroidered daisies on it, too.

My mom is coming over on Wednesday to go to lunch with us and also to see our Christmas tree. She is going to bring over an angel as a tree topper and I can't wait. We are using her old tree, which is super nice for being a fake one. I feel honored that she chose me to give it to. I can write this because none of my brothers read my blog, lol. I have mentioned it on the wayside to them here or there that I write down what I eat, but they are not even close to the Internet junkie that I am. They check their email maybe once a day whereas my email is on auto-check so I never miss a beat.

We create our own existence in this world, largely if not completely. That is one of the first things that drew me to Angie - her belief system and how accountable she seemed (and is) for beckoning people into our lives and basically creating our own destiny and reality. We always joke that that is the good news and the bad news!

It's raining like mad, which would usually be snow this time of year which would usually cause my arthritis to be really horrible, but it's shockingly not bad. My knee surgery literally removed some of my damaged bone (I think), but the way my surgeon tells it, he just did some carpentry tricks with my bone. Think of if you had a table with a bad leg... He removed a wedge of bone from my own hip and put it in my femur, which changed the whole angle of my knee. When he saw me walk with my pantleg up, he said that he really couldn't be happier. This guy does over three hundred reconstructive joint surgeries per year and is simply amazing. He actually received the Patient's Choice Award for 2010 and he is definitely at hero-status in my life. Angie gets mad when I tell her she is my hero, but she really is too. She has been sick with a stomach flu, but I packed her a cute little lunch and I hope she can eat it and gets better soon. She really can't miss work, but I wish she would stay home and get better....

  1. YAY - creating our own reality.
    Of COURSE we do. What else could it be?
    That's why people don't always agree or remember
    events in the same way.
    Glad you are getting around better.
    Hope Angie gets well soon too!
