Hells Kitchen

Mike and I were on two different planets last night.  He had been calling me all day with one thought after another and I was a little tired by the time I got home.  

Then he started calling me at home.  He asked me if he could cook a T-bone steak in the microwave.  I said you can but it won't taste very good.  I asked if he had purchased a steak and he said yes.  So, I offered to grill it for him tonight.

Thinking that the issue was settled I went back to cooking dinner for Ron and I.

After many confusing phone calls later Ron took over.  It seems Mike had stew brought to him by a neighbor.  He decided to heat it in the microwave.  Ron told him to put it in a glass bowl and cover with a paper towel.

About 30 minutes later Mike shows up at our door with a bowl in his hand asking, "Is this glass?"   Twilight Zone Theme song began playing in the background........

Then I found out he did not have a steak.....he said in two days his neighbor was going to bring him one.  

Some days I don't know which way is up!

However, with that aside my quest to improve my health and blood sugar is going well.  My glucose readings have been great and I've lost 15 pounds in the process.  Trying lots of new recipes and so far so good.   If I can manage to control my diabetes and lose weight at the same time as a bonus ...well.....I'm just one happy camper.  My goal is to get off medication.  I'm only taking 500 mg Metformin per day but I'd rather control it with diet/exercise.

The doctor ordered me a back brace and it should arrive soon.  If it helps I hope to be able to take short walks with Ron.   I'm being very careful about my posture and not bending over too much if possible.  I want spinal fusion to be the very last resort.
