Barium…it's what's for breakfast!

and lunch and supper.  Yum!  Not.  I have a CT scan on Monday so have started ‘prepping’ for it.  Not being one for ‘flavored’ items, drinking berry flavored barium for breakfast immediately kicks in my gag reflex.  Actually, just smelling the stuff got me started.

I had a psych appointment on Tuesday.  Nothing like drudging through all 50 years of your life — starting at the moment you were born — with a stranger.  Needless to say with some of the skeletons in my closet this has been a rough week for me.  Not sleeping, or if I do immediately go to sleep waking up at 3 a.m. and not being able to get back to sleep.

I have several more appointments to make between now and December 14th.  On that day one of my doctors will decide if I’m ready to be referred for surgery during January.

Today Kahuna and I are going to see ‘New Moon.’  Housing shut our water off at 6 a.m. this morning and we’ve already been showered and shaved, filled our tubs with water for the toilets), had our breakfast, entertained Harley (an all day affair, anyway), and are nursing a cup of coffee while we play on our respective computers.  I intend on spending the majority of today (while not at the movies) watching college football, DVRd stuff, and stitching (working exclusively on Summer Queen).  I’d like to start up a “goodreads’ on my facebook, too, but that might wait until tomorrow since I won’t be able to leave the house.

Although I haven’t posted it here (I don’t think?) Harley smacked Kahuna in his left eye a couple of weeks ago and tore his cornea.  At his last appointment this week he was told it’s as healed as it’s going to be, and there’s a wrinkle in the cornea.  He’s having vision problems because of it and they’re talking LASIK surgery….again.  This will be the 3d time for that eye…his good eye.  Sigh.  He’s undecided about having it, but has set an appointment with the doctor who did the first two (he’s the eye doctor for the San Diego Chargers) and I think he’ll decide based upon that opinion.

We’re headed to Disneyland on Thursday for our almost annual Thanksgiving tradition.  There are rarely any lines for any of the rides on that day and they serve turkey and dressing at the major eateries.  We try to eat at the Blue Bayou for lunch (but this year we waited too late to get reservations) and in downtown Disney at Brennan’s for supper to get our Louisiana fix every year.  We did manage reservations at Brennan’s and may even head over there for lunch and get a poboy.  I love Disneyland, especially this time of year.  The carols and fireworks in the evening even make me cry and miss home.  Kahuna and I are both still kids enough that we have a good time, just the two of us.

  1. That barium stuff is awful! I agree.

    I so love Disneyland at Christmas time. DH works there now, has for two years in fact and I have yet to go at Christmas time! I think we’ll HAVE to go this year.

    I’d love to see a progress pic of your Queen. I have yet to finish my Summer Queen–so close to finishing but yet can’t seem to find time to stitch much at all.

    Take care,

  2. Have a great time visiting the Mouse! I’ll step out on my balcony and toss a wave your way. 😉

    Sue – You guys should definitely hit the park! I’m not a Disneyland fan, per se — comes from living in Anaheim, I think. LOL That having been said though, when the park is all decorated up for Christmas, it really is beautiful and worth seeing.

  3. Sorry about your barium breakfast. That sounds truly awful. Disneyland on Thanksgiving–what a great idea! Have fun!

  4. That’s the same doctor who did my Lasik!

    Have a wonderful time at Disneyland; hopefully it will make the bad barium breakfast memory fade. 🙂

  5. Disneyland on Thanksgiving sounds like a lot of fun! I hope you had a great trip.

    I’m sorry about Kahuna’s eye – I hope he is able to get it repaired.

    Good for you on continuing your journey towards your weight loss surgery. {{{hugs}}}
