This Week....

This week was full of appointments - seemed like there were 3-4 appointments/meeting every day last week!

I'm also feeling my age!

My right elbow has been really bothering me, sore and tender since Thanksgiving.  I just kept ignoring it  thinking I had just strained something taking the Christmas decorations down out of the attic.  Finally decided after two months I should go to the doctor.  I did and I now have a wonderful, very attractive wrist brace on my right hand which makes typing and all kinds of other things a little more difficult, so please excuse any typos!  I was diagnosed with tennis elbow - I guess I better cut down on all that tennis I play!

I guess tennis elbow is caused by over use of the wrist but it causes pain in the elbow.  I get to wear this nice brace for two weeks, take lots of motrin and ice it and then see how it does.  Physical therapy will be next!

Since I was in the doctor mode I went in for a bone density scan.  Was informed that I have the beginning stages of osteoporsis in my left hip.  I guess I am getting old!

Had Book Club this week where we discussed The Hunger Games - a great book if you haven't read it yet.  I listened to it on CD as I have been sewing.  I did a lot of that this week too - 7 more black tops for the musical and I'm also making a bunch of reuseable grocery bags that I'm going to be selling in an etsy shop soon!

Saturday Tessa and I went out for our Saturday breakfast adventure.  Jim had a training meeting in Salem all day Saturday so he had to miss out.

This week we went to the Bijou Cafe in downtown Portland.  It was great and we had a yummy breakfast.

It was Brioche french toast for Tessa and I had oatmeal panckes which were really yummy but oh so filling - I think I ate about 1/3 of it, good thing I ordered the short stack.  Tessa also had some hot chocolate that looked better than it tasted unfortunately.

Despite the face we really had a nice time.  We missed Jim but had some good girl bonding time!

Saturday night I drove down to Salem for the awards ceremony/dinner at the end of his meetings.  They had a fun auction with fake money you earned by doing different business.  We ended up with a car full of stuff - most of which we are taking back to Costco and getting cash!!

Yummy, yummy, yummy breakfast. Most anything looks good now days since Michelle and I are trying hard to be good on Weight Watchers. Sorry to hear about the tennis elbow. Yes, all that typing can definitely do it. I've been borderline many times with the bone density. Take some great calcium and you should be fine.
