"I Wanna Talk About ME, Wanna Talk About I. . ."

No! That's not my weight,
but it IS my cholesterol number.
I've been forced to "step up" and take notice.  The test confirmed what I already knew  in my gut.  All the ice cream I've been eating with my Mom has caught up with me, via cholesterol and "poundage".  I have seen the error of my ways and am working hard now to get things under control.  I'm adhering to a fairly strict diet and trying for some scheduled exercise each day.  It takes a LOT of time and planning to do things the healthy way, doncha think?!  Just sayin...

I also went to Target to get my dreaded "Flu shot".  I went there because they advertised the new "micro-needle", which is 10 times smaller than the original.  Let me tell you - it's a bunch of advertising bunk.  I don't know about the needle, as I didn't look, BUT, it hurt as bad, or maybe even worse than the "regular" flu shot.  She stuck me once and the injector didn't dispense the medication, soooooooo, we had to do it again.  If you follow my blog then you're familiar with me and my "needle-phoebia".  I lay sprawled on a bench to the side of the pharmacy for 30 minute (no exageration) trying to get steady enough on my feet to leave.  Lil' Mama was with me.  She waited. She waited. She waited.  The room spun.  My stomach ached. I prayed I wouldn't throw up - prayed hard. Finally I was able to "get out of Dodge" by pushing a shopping cart to the door and get into the car that Lil' Mama had brought curbside.

Lest you think we're all about "things medical" let me show you a few Fall things here on the bayou.

This Star Jasmine was growing in a pot on the porch.  I transplanted her to the front of the house, with a few pansies to keep her feet warm.

Happy Fall Ya'll!
(The grass is still green and growing and not a single leaf has changed colors.  Fall comes late in the South.)
