A new cream, peacocks, and a little surgery, it must be Tuesday

In case you weren’t aware, today is the second day of Palindrome Week.  A palindrome means the numbers read the same forward as backward.  It’s not really as rare as you would think but still, it’s pretty cool.

Palindrome week

I mentioned yesterday that I have a jacked up Rhombus muscle.  Well, the doctor told me to use ice and heat and try not to spend so much time on the computer.

Oh sure, no problem.  I’ll just stop working. But seriously, since I work on a computer for most of the day I needed to find something that would alleviate the pain and I found the best thing ever.

I went to Wal-Mart to look around and I was just about to pick up some more biofreeze when I found this new version of it.

biofreeze

Y’all this version is by far the best ever.  It’s a cream instead of gel but more importantly it is twice as strong.  It lasts for hours and I am so happy with it.

I would like to mention that as a precaution if your husband applies this for you make sure he washes his hands thoroughly, and maybe even twice, before going to pee….otherwise his junk might be on fire for an hour or two.  I’m not sayin how I know this but just trust me on this one.

And while we’re on the subject of all my ailments, I got the results of an ultrasound that my doctor ordered for what she thought was an enlarged lymph node on the back of my neck.  Turns out it’s actually a subcutaneous nodule and now she would like to remove it and biopsy it in the hopes that it may help us figure out, or at least give us clues, as to what is going on with my body systemically.  So yeah, big fun.  I am currently awaiting a call from the surgeon.

I’m running this week.  Just three miles a day but it feels sooooo good.  And this morning, this guy flirted with me……

He’s a looker but I’m not taking him home.  I think we have enough pets for now.

Do you use biofreeze?

Have you tried the new cream biofreeze?

Tuesday by the twos

Two miles.  The amount that I walked yesterday morning.  It seems like such a small amount but when you’re having breathing problems and it’s hella humid, two miles is a marathon.

Two minutes.  The amount of time it will take me to put on my running shoes and run a marathon as soon as my doctors figure out what is wrong and then ultimately fix it.

when you cant run

Two Days.  The amount of time until I actually meet with my new pulmonologist.  Also, an eternity.

Two movies.  I told you about one of these months ago but these are two movies that I simply cannot wait to see.

Love, Gilda

Three Identical Strangers

Two for the price of one.  A cassette tape in which I am auditioning to be a teacher, at 8 years old because yes, I thought I needed to audition.  So I reigned in my brother and sister and on that same tape my sister can be heard pretending to be Rosanne Rosanna Danna who stepped in cat poo and my brother, who is playing my student pronounces agent as ag-ant.  AG Ant.  I have that cassette tape in my possession and I am just waiting for the perfect moment to play it again.  Embarrassing two of my siblings at the same time.  Two for the price of one.  Finding a cassette player may prove to be  challenging…… and also I just dated the hell out of myself.

Never mind found it, AMAZON.

Two Dogs.  The amount I have and the little boogers who keep me somewhat in shape by insisting I walk them many times, every. single. day.  And feed them and pet them and give them snacks and take them for car rides and….

Two Birds.  Also the amount I have although I’ve released them countless times because they refuse to leave me.

Too Many.  The amount of peacocks and ducks that I feed daily in my yard.  Also why the two birds may be refusing to leave.  My shopping bill is huge.  HUGE.

Two hours.  The amount of time I slept last night because MacGyver is in Nokomis and it was eerily quiet without the soothing sound of his snoring.

Your turn, tell me something in twos.
