#SoCS 10-22-22 Bad Results


Happy heavenly birthday to my father-in-law, Robert. He would have been 88 today.☹️Yesterday, it was my Dad’s. He also would have been 88.

Today I’ll be dealing with Linda G Hill’s SoCS prompt: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “bowl.” Use it as a noun or a verb—use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Well, I’ve been trying to incorporate different foods into my diet and adding fiber. I started with a nice warm bowl of oatmeal with some apple Sweetened cranberries on top. Omg, yummy!

For lunch, I ate a bowl of my cousin’s tortilla soup. The tortillas are replaced by cabbage. I don’t know if it was too much fiber, or the soup was too spicy, or if it was that I had those same two things the previous day, but oops! Let’s just say, it was a bad result.

Back on clear liquids now. Weirdly enough, that includes bananas, rice, and dry toast. So this morning, I had toast spread with apple sauce and some green tea. Then, Dave took me to Chili’s and I had a real meal! Salmon, asparagus, and rice. Let’s see if I keep it or not. The asparagus was perfect, crispy, salty, and yet tender enough to chew. I subbed that for the broccoli, which they say is not good for diverticulitis. I had a $25 gift card, so that paid for half the meals. Dave had a burger and fries. I only ate until I got full, then took home the leftovers in a to-go box.

The bus is still in the shop, but Dave is still working on the Jeep to get it also road ready. Replaced the lug nuts, and ordered new shocks, plus he needs to do a brake job on it. 🙄

Might as well take care of all that stuff now while he’s working and has money! I went to Dollar Tree (cause I’m frugal like that) and bought a suction cup soap dish, a moisture absorber, two jugs of low sugar juice (because I must be drinking too much of the cranberry blends…I have another mouth ulcer on my tongue). I bought another item for the RV but forgot what it was already. I was looking for a clear, over-the-door shoe organizer for our bathroom stuff, cause storage is limited in there. They had one, but it wasn’t clear, it was cloth.

I already have a set of mixing bowls, but I might get a smaller, stackable set. We’ll determine later if it’s needed. I offered to buy Kevin some bigger bowls for cereal and soup, but he said he didn’t need them. I beg to differ, but I don’t live here full-time, so I’ll let it go. He hardly ever cooks for himself anyway.

Yesterday, I found the floor in his office by emptying three boxes and storing that stuff in the supply cabinet he took from Dad’s house. David needed room to get his clothes from the closet. I have just about organized everything in this guys house! I have my observations about that too, but I’ll keep ‘em to myself. 🙄😉

It’s a beautiful, mild, sunny day! Go out and enjoy it!

  1. Haha. Your brother is single, I’m assuming. Lol. He has his house/home the way he likes it. Lol.

    I’m glad you’re finding foods that agree with you and you’re able to keep down without affecting your diverticulitis.

  2. The bowl sounds like a iffy place sometimes. It can be for me, too. I’m learning that even when keeping my diet to one meal a day it must be kept slow and small bits other otherwise I’m stuck in a room of least interest.

    Your brother(?) is lucky to have you visit his office. 😉

    • Thanks, I try to help him as much as I can while I’m here.
      Yes, I’m going to talk to a professional and get this thing figured out, hopefully. Read today’s post. I’m hoping soon I won’t be boring you all with my medical woes. 😕😘
