What’s going on around here? Tuesday was good to be back at work. I love being a dental hygienist. I enjoy my coworkers. I am happy to be helping my patients. I love the 'art and craft' of what I do. I had a really good nights rest Monday night so I was all ready for Tuesday and the day went well. They had given me two and a half hours off in the middle of the day instead of just one hour for lunch so I took a 45 minute walk around the local neighborhood. Some of my worries about going back to work were that I might make noises that would embarrass myself. When 'bubbles' move through my system and out sometimes others can hear a little bubbling sound. This did not happen at all on Tuesday and once Wednesday it did but there are lots of other noises in the dentist office and no one heard my personal noises. Did I mention that I am ticklish. You know how you blow bubbles on a babies belly and the baby giggles, well when those bubbles happen it tickles and sometimes it make me giggle. How weird is that.
My Dr. had left a message mid morning Tuesday about my blood test from Monday and although my liver numbers are improving she said the sugar numbers were not as good as she wanted. I am to go for another blood draw on Monday next week and she suggested that I stay away from sugars and simple carbs until after that test. I had planned on Mexican beans and Mexican rice for lunch yesterday with some of the corn salad on a bed of romaine and cilantro. I decided not to do the beans and rice. There is a Mexican restaurant next door to my office , so I called them up and they grilled me a piece of chicken to put on that salad, that was a good choice and delicious too.
FTD had these packaged with vase and plant food and the flowers along with instructions for how to put them all together. Bill did the putting together and they looked so pretty by the time I got there. Also I have really enjoyed the cards and letters from so many friends and family. Better than Christmas because they all have little notes inside. I am just so happy they are not sympathy cards and funeral sprays. For me this is so much better. So thank you all again for being so wonderful to me.
The nieces were gone by 8PM and I was in bed before 9 PM. Wednesday morning I moved a little slower than Tuesday and I had a full day of patients. It was great to be working and active and back in the swing of things.
Grannies’ Diary: Bobbie Ann Maxwell 1945
Grannies Diary (Bobbie Ann Maxwell): for a few years now my grandmother’s (my mom’s mother) diaries have been sitting on a bookshelf above my desk. Now that others are reading this, I think I will take things from her diary and tell you what was happening at her farmhouse also. I have started with the first complete looking diary and the year is 1945. I am telling her story, in her words as best I can.
