I think that maybe, just maybe, I’m beginning to kick this cold/cough thing. During the 10+ days that I’ve been inflicted with the virus, I came to a conclusion – maybe more than 1 conclusion but I can only think of one right now. Anyway, that conclusion… I’m a big cough syrup person and I prefer the type that has the decongestant along with a cough suppressant. My conclusion is that they need to add a whiz suppressant as well – or maybe a cough syrup special. The special would be a bottle of cough suppressant shrink wrapped up next to a package of Poise. It makes perfect sense to me. I’m not sure if cough-whiz-cough-whiz is inherent to MS or not but I think this idea of mine could benefit many.
The past few days I’ve been rather busy. I’ve been building a database for the football program at Coach’s school. They have so many different documents, spreadsheets, contact/information sheets that are spread out in binders, computer files on this computer or that computer, some in this office, or maybe down the hall in so & so’s office. The database will have all that information in one nice, neat location. Eventually I hope the IT folks will be able to create a shared drive for the coaches and the database can live there. I’ve been having fun with this project. My brain has been working fairly well – there’s been a few glitches and moments of confusion but not many.
My diet continues to go well… I can’t believe it. I’ve dropped 16 pounds… only 36 more to go to hit my goal weight. The blood sugar continues to hold steady. Thank goodness! Maybe in a few months I’ll be less tick like and feel a bit better about my appearance. I’m sort of tired of being confused with the Michelin Tire Man…
We continue to live in a state of brokedness… total and complete lack of money which means that dinner has gotten to be a creative endeavor. Tonight I made something that turned out pretty good. I had some left over wheat pasta, some white rice, bell pepper, onion, tomato, chicken, butter, and various seasonings. I chopped up the veggies and sautéed them in butter with some pepper, garlic, and a dash of Tony’s… I tossed in the chicken chunks and steamed the rice. It was served over pasta for me and rice for Coach. Yum! I can’t believe it turned out so good. I’m not much in the kitchen but I’m learning… thank goodness Coach is pretty easy going about food. I think as long as it’s hot and looks edible, he’s good.
