I know there's a way …

to embed an .mp3 file in a Blogger post, but I don't have time this morning (nor did I make time last night) to figure it out.

The only way you can listen to my new ringtone is to be hanging with me when my phone rings.

When the Dylan version of "Forever Young" came out, I snapped it right up as my ringtone, since
  • my maiden name is Young and
  • I love, love, love Bob Dylan
Replacing it was a major life decision (not!), but I think the theme song from Harry's Law is worth the switch.

My husband and I are headed to Wake-Forest Medical Center this morning for the second opinion, which we fervently hope is identical to the first. It'll be a long, long day with lots of driving punctuated by a little tension and a decision about treatment.

He thanked me this morning, for taking him to yet another doctor's appointment. I can't imagine not going. He's certainly capable of making the trip on his own, but I almost always think it's best to have an extra pair of eyes and ears in the examination room, and I want to be as supportive as I possibly can be. It was nice of him to thank me, but no thanks are necessary, that's for sure! Besides, all I'd do if I were here all day is worry. And (probably) eat. It's much better for my food plan to spend the day on the road. Heh.

I hope all goes well with the second opinion trip. Never occurred to me that you wouldn't go with him :)

Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.


Well. Well, well, well. Should this morning's scale number be divided between two weeks, or did all of it happen this past week? It's an easy number to divide, and I've been consistent for two weeks, so it should probably be split, doncha think?

That means I lost three pounds for each of the last two weeks. SIX pounds total. Excuse me, I mean
SIX!!!!!! I'm going to do everything I can to stay on track while I'm gone this week. There's little more I can promise. I'm really motivated to keep it up. The dumbbells are packed (and my luggage weighs a ton!), I'm taking a thermos of water in the car and I know where are the rest stops are between here and Nashville. I think I'll walk a bit at each of them, then walk again when I arrive at my destination. Hope to get a total of 80 minutes done by the end of the day. SIX!!!!!!

And the winner is …

Kitten with a Whiplash, who left two comments and it was the second (which had nothing to do with the contest) which won the prize. Congratulations, and since the Kitten was the only commenter who expressed any interest in actually winning it, I'm so glad the Universe took care of it. Heh.

What a weekend! But first, how was yours? I hope you did some fun stuff and got some necessary stuff done, as well. It's all about balance.

Saturday was our fun day (but we had to drive, drive, drive to get there and then drive, drive, drive home again, all in one day, boy was I tired). We went to my husband's granddaughter's first birthday party. In addition to a sweet little doll, suitable for ages 0+ (meaning it has no parts that will come loose, and do you know how difficult it is to find dolls for babies when you live in the Middle of Nowhere?), I made her this:

I haven't sewn anything in a month of Sundays, so was a little apprehensive about finishing it on time, but this p…
