A Light at the End of the Tunnel.....

Friday I got a letter from the Bariatric Center advising me that a new surgeon had been hired and would be starting to accept patients the first week in November. I got on the phone right away and called to make an appointment. I will be seeing the gastro doctor on the 27th of October so I wanted to get an appointment as soon after that as possible. They gave me Monday, November 2nd. I am ready to get back on my program. I have had the last 5 months of non restriction and have strayed off my eating program. I have gained a few pounds but I think my exercising daily has helped me from back sliding too much. I am eager to meet the new doctor. He is from North Dakota and has been a bariatric surgeon for 10 years. He will be handling all the LapBand patients according to the receptionist. I just hope that when I have my adjustment I don't start having the reflux again. I guess I will have to wait and see what the Gastro doctor says. Well, I have to get off here so I can get to bed early tonight.

Beautiful Autumn

The weather has been so beautiful this week, and

the leaves in our town are turning such beautiful shades of red, orange and burgundy. And all the browns and golds are there too. Our oak tree stopping dropping the acorns that we were being pelted with the last month and now the leaves are beginning to fall. This drives my hubby absolutely bonkers. He is constantly out there blowing the leaves onto the lawn and mulching them with his riding mower. And as soon as he finishes a gust of wind blows down a thousand more leaves. Ah, such is Autumn. Maybe that is why they call it fall. Yesterday we took down the dining room light that has been hanging in the now living room and hung a track light fixture that you can shape to your liking. We bought it about a year and a half ago. I was so happy when he said he wanted to do that. I don't like to nag him about all the things that still need to be done so when he gets productive I just go with the flow.
Our printer is on the blink. I sent a recipe to it the other day and when I went to the computer room to pick it up there was a message on the printer that said "INK SYSTEM FAILURE" I followed the instructions on the HP website for the model we have and still no luck. So now I guess I will have to get it fixed. I don't know if computer repair places also fix printers. I hate to just buy a new one since this one isn't very old and it's a blue tooth 4 in one printer. It's also a photo printer. Darn!! We don't use it overly much so I don't thing it's worn out. Oh well, guess I will call around and see who will fix it.
I am sitting here and it's ten minutes to six in the morning. I've been awake since 2:35 when Chloe woke me up. These pets of ours have been terrible about waking us the last few weeks. Once I am awake it's hard for me to get back to sleep, I start thinking about things I need to do and start making lists in my head and before I know it an hour or two have gone by and I just get up and wait to get sleepy again. I am now starting to feel sleepy so I am going to end this for today. Have a wonderful day everyone.
