When I served dinner, Vince said “Are you celebrating being home?” I said “Yes, and the fact that at midnight, my time with the “Affordable Health Care” is over! June 1 – Medicare begins. No more $1,000+/month insurance premiums for coverage that stops when I leave Texas and a $7,500 deductible.
That’s reason to celebrate, don’t you think? I never thought I’d be so thrilled to be 65 but that horrible insurance made me welcome 65 and Medicare.
I’m back on keto. I was horrible while I was gone. I don’t know if I mentioned it but I got sick again and had to go to the doctor again in Missouri. I don’t sleep good there. The bed is horrible. Addie sleeps with me. The dog sleeps on the floor by the bed or at the foot of the bed and every time he wiggles, the tags on his collar jingle. I’m not used to noise and Chad lives right on a fairly busy street so there are noises all night. I don’t think his air conditioner is working great and the house seemed humid all the time. Maybe I’m just not used to humidity. Anyway, I ended up feeling really bad, back on meds, coughing my head off and just didn’t feel much like dieting so whatever I cooked for them, I ate too – including cake. A couple of nights we had fried chicken. One night we went to an Italian restaurant and not only did I have pasta but we had cannoli for dessert.
This morning, I held my breath and got on the scales. I had only gained two pounds. Again, feeling bad helped some but I’m back on the diet.
Vince made a salad and I cooked some shrimp.
Aldi had this interesting looking spicy thai dressing on sale so we put that on the salad and it was good.
While going through the freezer, I came across one last package of lobster so we had lobster and sauteed okra. It was a good meal, and nice to be back on the diet.
