WTF Wednesday, Boomer is my fall guy.

Are people actually still considering vacationing in the Dominican Republic?  According to the latest reports 9 people have died there since April and since it’s not exactly a top vacation destination, I mean, I just don’t think that there are thousands of Americans jetting over there monthly, so yeah, 9 is a big number.  Also, Rick Springfield cancelled his concert there so it’s obvious that something is going on over there.

MacGyver and I already live in a top vacation destination so we’ll be staying home this holiday weekend.  Considering it’s the 4th of July and we have really bad luck on the 4th that’s not a bad idea, trust me.  We also have some family celebrating to do because the fourth of July is actually this guy’s birthday.

Boomer

Just give me all the food please….

I’m baking him a special cake.  He’s such a good boy.  Plus, last week when I was having stomach issues I farted in public twice when another person was standing right beside me and Boomer was my fall guy so I have to make it up to him.

farting

Sorry Boomer….

Did y’all see the video of the woman who takes the ice cream out of the cooler in a grocery store, licks it and then puts it back?  I threw up a little in my mouth when I saw that.  Who does that?

And who cheats in a marathon when there’s literally no reason for it?

Apparently, this 70 year old doctor does.  He’s been on the radar for cheating for some time now but recently marathoninvestigation.com wrote a piece about him and now it’s gone viral. If you don’t follow MarathonInvestigation.com I urge you to.  I think you’ll find it interesting.

WTF, it’s Wednesday and I’ve got a cake to bake.

Have you ever farted and blamed it on the dog?

WTF Wednesday, I can’t leave my house, like, ever!

How is it Wednesday already?  Jeez Louise has this week flown by.  What’s been going on you ask?  Well a few things.

First, last week when I walked out my back door from the lanai, I was staring straight at this:

snakes

That’s not two snakes having sex as I originally thought. No, there were 5 of them just all intertwined like big ass snake weirdos.

Obviously I can never leave my house again.

Last week I told you about the 2nd washer that we got but that it had spring a leak and we had to move it out to the garage for repairs.  Well, it was actually in front of the garage and MacGyver fixed it, but just to make sure it didn’t leak again he wanted me to wash a few loads before moving it back to the laundry room.  That’s how we became known as ‘the house with the washer in the front of the garage smack dab in the middle of the driveway’ people.

The neighbors love us.

Those people

In order to prevent any fines from the city I convinced MacGyver that it was working just fine and he moved it back into the laundry room/ spare bathroom yesterday, and so far it’s working with no issues.  I know this because I’ve already used it 4 times.  Yes, I know, it’s a problem.

Last week I met with my immunologist regarding the antibody tests results.  He confirmed what I thought, that they were definitely low.  And actually, 7 out of 14 were basically non-existent, which means if I were to get sick with that type of illness my body would have a hard time fighting it.

So, the immunologist has ordered a pneumovax vaccine and then I have to go back in 4 and 6 weeks and have more antibody testing to see if my body develops antibodies.  Hopefully then I’ll know if the low IGG Subclasses are an issue or not.  In the meantime, the immunologist wanted to re-check my allergies.

allergy tests

Number 26 looks like a problem, what could it be??

allergies

Hmm, that’s a lot of numbers, I’m just glad they wash it all off.

I’m not sure if you can see it but the bright red spot on my back is for mold.  Apparently, I am allergic to mold, good to know.  Fortunately, I can avoid that easily.  Now, the big red spot on my arm, number 26, that’s going to be a hard one.  Because my worst nightmare was realized right there in the doctor’s office.  Guess who is allergic to her most favorite thing on the planet?

ME!

People, I’m extremely allergic to………………

DOGS!!!!!

oh god know

There’s always the option of allergy shots.  Because getting rid of the offending allergy is NOT an option.

Besides, my dogs protect me.  Just yesterday one of the snakes that live outside the lanai managed to find a way into the lanai and was just slithering around like he owned the place.  Little Hank saw it and grabbed it by the tail and shook it until it turned around and hissed at him.  I screamed and MacGyver came out and tried to get it out from behind the hurricane shutters with a grabber thingy.  It ran out the other side and then Hank chased it out the door.  It was all very scary but now I really can’t ever leave my house again.  EVER.

At least I have two washers to keep me busy and wtf, it’s Wednesday!  Something interesting is bound to happen, right?

When is the last time you saw a snake?

Do you have allergies?  To what?

WTF Wednesday, it’s all about the protein

So all during the month of April I ate very healthy foods and I didn’t snack or over eat.  I also ran or walked when I could but mostly I lifted weights with MacGyver.  A solid month of that and I stepped on the scale and was completely shocked.

exercising and not losing

Yeah, I gained a pound.  I mean, I know it’s only a pound but I gave up Wendy’s Frosty’s and Reeses Peanut Butter cups for this!  What the hell?

So I asked my doctor about it because I was sure the steroids had somehow damaged my body and he told me to try to eat more lean protein and healthy fats.  Jesus, is everybody on the Keto train now?  I mean, not that I don’t think you’ll lose some weight but I read Bob Harper’s book and while I don’t eat a ton of carbs, I still like to think my diet is much healthier.

So for the first week of May I’ve been eating more protein but I’m not eating a lot of fat sans the occasional avocado.  I’ll see how much I lose at the end of the month before I decide if more protein is the key.

Diets suck

As far as exercise goes, I’m still not running.  I decided to take some additional time off to make sure my legs are completely healed before starting again, but I am walking every morning.  I’m up to 4 miles a day.  I’m also still lifting weights because I love the way my arms are starting to look.   And when you factor in that it’s already in the 90’s here and humid as all heck, walking seems a lot more fun that running.  Except for the bugs.

It’s love bug and gnat season.

swallowing the bugs

Actually, this morning I swallowed a pair of love bugs and at least 4 or 5 gnats.  Does anyone know how much protein is in bugs?  Maybe I can add that to my daily total.

WTF?  It’s Wednesday!

Have you ever eaten a bug?  Accidentally?  Or on purpose?
