It's Friday Already?


Boy this week went by fast! Last night I checked my Ipod to see if it was still wet and it appeared to be completely dried out. I turned it on and ...........it works!! I was so relieved. Now hopefully it will be able to function in all ways. I read of one person who said that he couldn't charge the battery once it had gotten wet. I still have most of the charge on the battery so I will use it today at the gym and charge it over the weekend.

I have an appointment next week for a Lapband adjustment. Last month when I went for one the doctor didn't want to give me one. He was hesitant because of the fact that my reflux came back when he started to fill the band again. He suggested I wait a few weeks. So I made an appointment for a month out. Now the last few days my band feels like it has tightened so I think I am going to cancel my appointment. I may just push it out another month so that I will have one if I need it next month. I have lost a couple of more pounds finally, now that I have a fill again. I have started to try to eat a little better. The good thing about my band is that I was able to eat what I wanted because I haven't been able to eat that much and still lost weight. But, I have decided that I need to be more mindful of what I eat. I am trying to get in more fruits and vegetables. Last night I made cabbage rolls since I was given a huge cabbage by someone. I had never made them before but remember them from when I was a child and I loved them. Well, Mister Picky wasn't thrilled with them. He is not a veggie eater and the cabbage didn't go to well with him. He loved the filling but not the cabbage part. I thought they were delicious. I got the recipe from one of the blogs I read but I can't remember who's blog at this time. Of course I made a dozen of these things and I could only eat one. He ate two. Now I need to find a home for 9 more. I hope they freeze well. I will eat one for lunch today and then freeze the rest. Or maybe give a few to my neighbor lady.

Do any of you watch American Idol? We've been watching it since the first season and I am hoping they cut short the beginning part where they show all the people who are auditioning just to get on TV. Some of that is okay but two months of it is a little much.

Last week we watched New In Town with Renee Zellwegger and Harry Connick Jr. Have you seen it? We enjoyed it. Thought it was pretty funny. Renee has quite a sense for comedy. Got our new Netflix movie yesterday. It's High School Musical. I haven't seen it and don't know if I will like it but I want to see what all the hoopla is about. My hubby wasn't too excited when I told him what it was. We'll see. I pop him some popcorn and he'll be happy.

I am putting in my order for 4 cabbage rolls. How soon can you deliver? Darn, that sounds good. Been a long time since I ate them myself. Glad you are doing better with the lapband. Keep up the weight loss. ;)

Cabbage rolls do freeze well. I used to make a huge batch at a time and freeze half. It is something that you need to make a bunch of as it's a lot of work for just a few. Glad the Ipod works!

I'm ashamed to admit that the only part of American Idol that we watch are the auditions!

Hi Kathy!!

Sorry I haven't checked in much. Life is a bit hectic. I also liked New In Town.

I hope all is well with your band and the acid reflux. My band is so tight that I'm not eating properly and therefore....not losing. Life is funny huh?

I will be checking in regularly. I miss you!!

I love cabbage, and it is so good for you. There use to be a recipe going around for a cabbage soup that was good, and helped one lose weight.
Good luck with your ipod. I love mine too.
