Full of Hot Air!

I lost 3 pounds over the Christmas break!!!! I’m still trying to believe it.  I am so puffy! I hurt! My body hates me. I feel like the Hindenburg…a zeppelin and, as my Wunderdoctor Fretz says, “I’m full of hot air.”  Yes, she, too, is a Maven of the double entendre. My suspected intestinal blockage is just that, hot air! And I do go on. How embarrassing! Gas!!!! Mind you, kept in a confined space, it is painful, bloating and…well..we all know what outcomes are possible.  Get it? Outcomes?

I did not make any New Years resolutions. I have so many things I am doing from day-to-day that a couple more promises would be overkill.  And we all have weaknesses.  The crave morsels take over sometimes. Norm got peanut brittle for Christmas.  MMMmmmm. Have you ever tried to just have one tiny piece with only one peanut in it? As soon as it passes your lips it is calling for company.  More brittle…more peanuts…. Quick, go brush your teeth!

The Magic Toothbrush!

Brushing your teeth works a lot of times.  It cleanses your mouth, reminds you that candy is bad for your teeth and keeps them white and shiny.  We all know what orange juice tastes like right after you brush your teeth.  EEwww! Milk, apples, hamburgers etc.  None work right after the brushing. You must remember to use a soft brush because if you are brushing more that 17 times a day (to fight the crave morsels) you might wear down your enamel a bit.  I am exaggerating but that is part of my “hot air”.

Well, enough for now. Work beckons! Not really, but I do want to tell everyone how much I appreciate where I work.  The staff and students of the Saanich Adult Education Centre are awesome (and I am not exaggerating here). Thanks for all your support.  And a special thanks to Dr. Michelle Fretz, my Wunderdoctor.  I remember the first time I met her.  I knew she was the right doctor for my girls and I when she saw all three of us and she was about seven months pregnant with her second child. She is a true “Family” doctor!  Thanks.  And she laughs at my blog!

Thanks for listening. ;D  Diane
