Tuesdays are good nights for TV for me because my favorite shows are on. I don't watch a whole lot of shows, but I will admit to being crazy about NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles. they are action packed and the good guys always win! Sometimes it is a bit gross with the bodies, but I don't look when it is like that. Since I can't stand the sight of blood, I usually just listen to the scenes that are in the autopsy room. I like how the teams work with each other and the characters are so interesting to me. All in all, I am glad I started watching them even though at first I stuck my nose up in the air with them. I was annoyed because they took the place of JAG for a few weeks and I loved JAG. As a matter of fact, I have all 10 season of JAG. I think because we were an army family that I can identify with the families who have members serving the military. Now, Mom was in the reserves, which I know is a bit different, but it still means we were a military family. While there were definite things I disliked intensely about Mom being in the Army, overall, I was very proud of her. She accomplished a lot and without her and women like her, the women of today would not be at the ranks and jobs that they are in. Mom was a pioneer. She broke glass ceilings. Mom was also very brave and courageous however, she was very shy about talking about her accomplishments. She was a very humble woman. I love that about her (one of a million or so reasons I adored my mother!) Anyways, Mom always said that she was born too soon. I can only imagine what she could accomplish if she was born 40 years later. However, I am rather glad she was born when she was since I would not be me if she wasn't.
Today the tummy is a bit better than yesterday. Most of the time I ignore the pain and the upset tummy. I just go and take my tummy medicine and pain medicine but sometimes it is difficult to ignore such things. Last night was one of them. I think at this point, I am so used to pain that I don't always feel it. I know it is there, but I can ignore it at times unless I get up (then my hips cry and my legs) or I move wrong and it twinges the pain. I think because I don't teach or work full time and I have time to make sure I rest it makes a difference. I don't anticipate actually ever being able to work full time or teach full time again. The last time I tried that I was in and out of the hospital so much that I knew the ER doctors and nurses and they knew me on sight. Not really a recommended thing. I have been in the ER in the last year, but it isn't as much as it used to be so that is good. I have better medicine now, I think, at least for the moment.
Anyways, I am going to make some dinner now. I am going to have pasta and veggies. I forgot to take the chicken out to thaw so no chicken tonight. I don't mind, I like pasta and veggies without meat too.
Try to have a good night!
