tuesdays i have physical therapy at carle in urbana. i absolutely love my physical therapy because it's the only thing in over 11 years that is starting to improve my quality of life. i still hurt every day but i have hope that eventually i will be pain free. even if it takes me another year. *sigh* :)
so. before therapy. i ventured to a nearby park to enjoy God's delicious creation. i had 40 minutes before my therapy session so i read my Bible and i took photographs. i very much enjoy taking pictures. i shoot with canon because it's what i learned on. i only shoot in manual, in RAW, and i love natural light. i am learning to edit and oh what fun it is!
i also enjoy coffee. however, with my headaches i have to limit myself and be very careful as to how much i have and when i have it. some days i try to act "normal" (whatever that means) and i have coffee with refined sugar and it's a nightmare for the next few days. today, however, was a perfect mcdonald's caramel frappe day and i was very happy to drink it. after therapy i went shopping at bed bath and beyond which is another nightmare in my opinion. so i darted to the first worker i could find to help me. dan was really nice. i told him my budget and that i needed to get two bridal shower gifts and i am not interested in looking at the tiny numbers on the registry and then daring to locate them in this jynormous store so please find these things for me. bam - he did it. and i stayed 6 dollars under budget. score. i hate huge stores. they scare me. and i think their prices are upsetting. i am not interested in paying "full price" for something that is just as good at a cheaper price. call me cheap. i wear the name proudly. :)
after lunch (chicken caesar sandwich from paneara bread - thankfully they have antibiotic free chicken) i headed to meijer. my very favorite place for produce. nom nom nom. i loaded up on fruits and veggies and headed home.
i started to make bread and realized that i was almost out of all purpose flour. so i just added more wheat flour. made sense at the time. that darn dough. or lack of dough i should say! it still turned out.. bread - ish. we'll eat it anyways and i'll get more all purpose for next time. live and learn :) thankfully i have a husband who will eat anything i make, he's sweet like that.
we had a fun night too! grilled organic hot dogs (which is another story altogether) and watched a will ferrell movie. totally good night.
today - wednesday, i go for injections at carle. i may or may not get them. i'll write about injections another time.
