Sunny and windy here, too. One week of warm weather spoiled us. I thought I'd walk outside today but stepped out the door and was almost blown away. Settled for a bit of Total Gym today - I need to build up my stamina gradually, so am back to the lowest level.
Chicago sounds like fun, although it might actually be colder there than in the northeast. Getting away is the part that attracts me. I'm doing my best to take steps towards employment every day, but it's a challenge. DS also quit his bakery delivery job, so soon we'll have no more free bread (a good thing!) but he'll have to fall back on his savings until he finds something. They had him working 50+ hours a week, driving 250 miles a day, and they wore him to a frazzle. He's had no time to work on his music, which is what he's supposed to be doing right now.
Food is continuing to be good, and I'm staying away from wine, too. Trying to make it to Easter. I've started a bit of fruit or a bit of starchy veggie every day and doing OK so far. Today I met a United Way friend for some soup while we commiserated about job searches. This girl is in her late 20's, bright Wellesley grad, editor, worked at the Field Museum and does editing from home for Cornell Univ. Press. She can't find anything but temp work here and may have to move back to NY, but really wants to stay here. She just did an informational interview at the Frances Perkins Center.
Food is good today: feta and veggie omelet, soup and a cheese stick for lunch, some nuts, dinner will be ham and veggies, some kind of potato for the boys. Tomorrow I'm making them some pasta while I have leftover ham and some beans. I chopped a hunk of the ham off and froze it, baking the part with the bone tonight and will make a vat of pea soup tomorrow.
Hoping your fluid intake/output issue isn't serious. It must be hard to worry so much every time something seems off-kilter.
I count my blessings that we've been healthy and that I seem to be holding off the genetic gift my mother gave me!
