Ten on Tuesday

1. Today for breakfast I had rye toast with cream cheese, for lunch I had a cheese crisp with LOTS of sour cream, and for dinner, we are having burgers with a mayo, cheese, bacon stuffing. Happy Fat Tuesday to ME! I am giving up ranch, cream cheese, mayo and sour cream for lent. I MAY DIE!

2. I rarely get any email of worth anymore. If I do get an email of worth, I rarely remember to respond because I check my email from my phone, and I don't really like responding from there.

3. I caved and went to the doctor last week, I was diagnosed with calcific tendinitis (also calcific/calcifying/calcified/calcareous tenonitis/tendonitis/tendinopathy, tendinosis calcarea, hydroxyapatite deposition disease (HADD) and calcific periarthritis), a form of tendinitis, is a disorder characterized by deposits of hydroxyapatite (a crystalline calcium phosphate) in any tendon of the body, but most commonly in the tendons of the rotator cuff (shoulder), causing pain and inflammation. Pain is often aggravated by elevation of the arm above shoulder level or by lying on the shoulder. Pain may awaken the patient from sleep. Other complaints may be stiffness, snapping, catching, or weakness of the shoulder. It was SERIOUSLY PAINFUL.

4. To treat the calcific tendinitis, I had to take to take a pack of cortisone pills that SERIOUSLY messed with my mind, body and spirit. I was HOT all the time, sweating, dizzy, had a severe headache, and I SMELLED. OMG, some people may not want to talk about it, but WOW! I couldn't go anywhere or do anything because I could smell myself.

5. I am a really good mom up until about 1:30 PM, after that, I really feel like I am still part of the working force and I should be gearing up for Happy Hour, or at least something a little more exciting than dinner, bath and bed. I feel like the end of my day is jam packed with the things I like the least about being a mom, I am working on trying to have a better attitude about this.

6. Does anyone else watch Guiliana and Bill-I think it is on the Style or E network? Anyway, they went to this amazing "couple's retreat" at Miraval in Tucson. OMG, I want to go SOOOOOOOO BAD, and I want to go with a group of couple friends. Kind of pricey, but it looks AMAZING!

7. LIME is the flavor of the month at Eegee's in March. It is my favorite flavor when mixed with the strawberry. I fully plan on driving down there one day to eat at a fast food restaurant. WHAT IS MY PROBLEM? (It is going to be REALLY HARD to eat there without getting ranch for my fries-OMG, and can I not have their tuna since I gave up mayo-SERENITY NOW!)

8. I think I like the summer Olympics better, JUST SAYING!

9. On that note, watching the winter Olympics makes me want to go snowboarding-I have no idea how, just think it looks fun!

10. My grandpa crashed his computer, and he calls me about it. What does he think I know? I can't even get my pictures to face the right direction on blogger!!!

Your arm diagnosis should read "pain is also often aggravated by young children constantly needing things and not leaving you alone with your pain!"

I hear ya on the email and I can't even blame my phone.

You make me laugh SO hard!

I promise you won't die without any of those things you aren't eating! I haven't eaten them sine I was a child!!!

I want to go to on the couple's retreat!!! Will it be like the movie?!? LMAO!!!

2. Same here, it's so hard to sit down and write an email or respond to one when you only check it from a mobile device.

3. OUCH! I hope it gets better for you soon.

5. The only thing that keeps me going in the afternoon is thinking about bedtime and sitting down with a glass of wine after they're both in bed. Ahhhh ...

6. Don't watch it, but Miraval is supposed to be sooooo nice. A lot of celebrities go there.

7. Eegee's fries with ranch are the best!

9. I think about going skiing everytime we watch the skiers. My husband is a fan of curling (yawn!) and I have no idea why.

I don't think I would be very good at the whole lent thing. How in the world can you give up Ranch?! It goes with almost everything. You're crazy!

"You're crazy" reads as "I have great respect and admiration for you!" You do know I gave up meat last year, I am hoping this will be a cinch! :-)
