~I am seriously hurting over the passing of country music legend George Jones. There has never been, nor will there ever be, anyone like the Possum. May he RIP. I wish I'd seen him live just one time.
One of the things I love about him, besides his amazing voice and talents, is that he totally owned the negative things he did in his past, and could laugh at himself about them. When he was badly addicted to alcohol and drugs he got the nickname "No-Show Jones" after missing many performances. Instead of giving up or crying about it, he wrote a a song called "No-Show Jones" and opened most of his concerts with it!
He also was notorious for jumping on his lawn mower to get where he needed to go after one of his four wives would hide his car keys. He appears in a few different videos riding around on a mower! I love that attitude. It's like, Eff y'all, this is me whether you like it or not!
~ We had a good Friday. Slept WAY in as usual, then we ran a few errands including taming my unruly eyebrows! YIKES!
Then we ate at Red Robin. We just got a Red Robin in our town a month ago and it was our first time going. The food AND drinks were amazing! YUM!
We both got the Bacon Cheeseburger. I got Pepper Jack Cheese on mine. It was seriously one of the best burgers I've ever had. And my drink I think was called Freckled Strawberry Lemonade. It had fresh strawberries, vodka and lemonade. Again- YUM!
P.S. I am not being paid for this at all.
I just love food and want everyone to know how good it was!
~ This week was one of the best I've had at my job. Part of it was, I had several patients who really touched my heart and I truly enjoyed taking care of them. But I think another part of it is that I'm really getting into the groove of the job. I know what I'm doing and what's expected of me and I can do it all with relative ease now.
~ Oh, I almost forgot! I am kicking the diet soda habit. For real. I did it once before for my gastric bypass surgery, and was supposed to never start again post-op....ooops! I lasted for quite a while without it...at least a year, I think. But then I started back. I've read for years about how horrible aspartame is for your body, but I ignored it. I buried my head in the sand. But no more. I am done poisoning myself.
PS - I HAVE Fibromyalgia, as well as several of the other things on this list. Scary stuff. And of course you can find denials about all of this on Aspartame's website as well as the FDA's site, but I'm not buying it.
~ Hope y'all have a good weekend! I'm off to do a quick clean up of the house so I can relax all weekend. =)
~ This song will always & forever give me chills.
