Busy day today

That "spring ahead" bullshit is the worst isn't it?? Screwed up my entire day! It actually bled into today as well as I had to sleep in after staying up until the new 2 a.m. Ugh. So 8:00 rolled around and I STILL couldn't get out of bed. Finally, at 9, I pulled myself out of bed and hit the shower.

At 9:30, my folks called to tell me they were coming downtown and wanted to know if I wanted to hook up for lunch. Absolutely!! However, I want to take a minute here to scold them because I know and they know that I know that they knew about this appointment WEEKS ago. Let's plan ahead....I would have felt bad if I scheduled physical therapy or something for noon.

We ended up going to our favorite resto, The Bagel. Here's what my mother ordered, Mish-Mash Soup.

Here is what was leftover from her bowl!! $8 for all that food. It's like three meals.

As it was, I scheduled PT for 10:30, so I barely had time to suck my coffee down before my session......which was really tough on my shoulder. My new strategy with the shoulder is to do PT through the end of the month, stop throwing softballs until then and then get a cortisone shot in early April if the shoulder isn't better. I'm running that strategy by my doctor to see what he thinks. My PT therapist is getting married on Saturday and then going on her honeymoon for two weeks, so I'm the least of her concerns.

Then I had several business calls including a catch up call with a client. Next thing I knew, it was 4:30 and time for me to head to the gym. Today I started a "core" class which meets several times during the week and is 30 minutes of working just your abs and core related muscles. Good stuff. I spend a lot of time on my arms and legs, so this class should help even things out.

One final bit for today. I was at Woodfield Mall on Sunday and saw this in the men's room:

I couldn't figure out what the hell it was for! I was going to put a dollar in just to see what would happen.

Here's a close up. Money in, pull knob....then razor blades come out and hack your arm off. Hell, it could happen!!!

Love Mish-Mosh Soup! Of Course you don't have to eat for a week afterwards.
