Good news, the nurse called back. DH was ready to take me to a walk-in clinic. Anyway, she said put iodine on it and it should heal up in a couple of days. I had been using peroxide, and apparently that is the wrong stuff to put on it.
Menu planned. On to bills.

Great news CH. I am impressed your doctor was willing to give you advice over the phone. So many of them make you come in for every little thing. Hope it starts healing soon.

Winkie, thanks so much for the encouragement. I've known people who had a baby, then a wedding, and that's just the way I have to accept that this will be. DD and her fiance do love each other--- this wasn't a casual thing---and I think he would get married as soon as she wants. But she doesn't want to marry right away. She's 25, and he's 27, so they're not kids. DH was really upset when he found out due to their less-than-wonderful financial standing right now but today he's better. Still disappointed, but he will be okay.And I will be too.

Winkie they are so overbooked there I'm amazed I got a call back. They probably couldn't fit me in for a visit if they tried.
I hope it works out ILC. My brother did not marry the mother of his child (her choice) but they are still on good terms and the child visits our family regularly and is loved.
DH brought home some betadyne so I'm hoping it works quickly.
It was a lovely evening and I got out and got 15 minutes in the sun, pulling weeds and smelling the lilacs.

ILC--Been there, done that. My kids got married a month after the baby was born. She is 6 now and I love her as much as I ever could. It will work out. My DD is in nursing school and my SIL has a job for 9 months of the year due to weather. They don't have much, but they are happy and healthy. Congratulations. Now the fun begins.
I have an appointment with my nutritionist this morning. I got clearance from my neurologist to have the surgery. Have to pick up my Dmom and DB in a nearby town later this morning as my DB can't drive that far. We will be headed to the funeral home tonight for visitation and they will spend the night afterwards.

Guess I didnt post yesterday at all. My computer had the AGV mascerade virus and Dh had to clean it out because the reordered new one isnt here. I'm sure it will arrive tomorrow afternoon as DH is leaving in the morning!! .
As you get older opinions change. I wish DD could have a baby and IDK how i feel about ds's wife ever having kids. Shes so messed up herself from all her posts. But from time to time I think I would like a grand child. For now I guess I'll borrow someone elses.
ILC-congrats. I'm excited for you. Finances are always wrong for a baby anyway.
GB-so sorry for your loss.
CH-I'll remember that about iodine. Kinda a lost treatment.
IDK what I'll do today. Got another raining on and off day. DH is leaving at 3:30 tomorrow morning so he will go to bed early.
So I had a cheat dinner on my diet last night. I had tea w/ sugar and a strawberry milkshake. I ordered the fish platter w/ coleslaw,hush puppies and fries. I ate 2 bites of fish,4 fries,2 teeny bites of coleslaw and 2 hush puppies. DONE. stuffed. In days past I could have mowed that down and looked for cake. I am hopeful I can stick to the weightloss now. My appetite is so much smaller.

This should be a rough trip for DH. The 2 higher ups w/ the company want to talk to DH today so I hope its $$ and a permanent job.

Babysat the three little girls Sunday. Ages 1 2, & 3. Everyone did well. I fed them lunch, dinner & two snacks! We loaded them in the wagon & took them for a ride around the property. Everyone had fun. They were all gone by 7:30 & I dashed around & picked up everything while DH made popcorn.
Monday I did a couple loads of laundry, one load yesterday & one load today. I cleaned out fridge yesterday & made soup. Composted anything that didn't make the cut. Ran the vacuum on main floor. Made yummy stir fry for supper.
We are going out tonight! DH wants 1/2 price appetizers, so I am in!
Weather is nice right now, but getting cold again & may snow on Friday. After that I need to get ultra motivated to work outside.
Everyone have a lovely evening!

Hit Kroger West and Kroger east. So wiped. All the kids off for spring break w/ grammy=too much chaos for FW!. Unload and put away all the perishables but it is thundering to beat the band so maybe tomorrow before scheduled snow I can get the rest. Got 4 cases of soup broth. I will donate 1 and keep 2 and DD will get the other. I got 1/2 reduced sodium and 1/2 reg. Swanson at .49 if you buy 6. I treated myself to a porter house steak they were on for $7.99# and Dh will be gone for Easter so thats my treat. I hit the East Kroger and the clearance center was brimming again. FYI Kroger also has vitamins on for 2/1.
I hope to get a load in and a Canadian stamp order too. tehn I will treat myself to a movie for $4.99.

It is pouring hard so the 4 cases of soup broth will stay put. We are supposed to possible wake up to snow so I hope they dont freeze. Ended up watching Office party movie and it was bad. I didnt get another load in I'm just too tired.

Good morning. It is cold here in the 40s. The funeral service was very nice. Not doing anything today. Have to meet my SIL this evening with Dmom and DB. It is a 2 hour drive. Not looking forward to it, but it is necessary.
