The kids have 2 friends over, so I have 5 kids running around the house...which is fine, I didn't think I would actually have time to even write today, but here I am.
Today was my first piano lesson! YAY! It went well! I can read music a bit and get the different types of notes, I even know my keys on the piano. I have never taken a formal lesson though, and only have ever played with my right hand.
Would my now almost 40 year old brain be able to add my left hand to the mix?
Not easily...but I think I am starting to get it! It is definitely going to be the hardest part for me. It is also not my dominant hand to begin with, and the hand that tends to hurt the most with my RA. Go figure.
I can now play Old MacDonald had a Farm with two hands, though and I am proud! I am also excited for next weeks lesson to come!
So, the kids all go down to the park that is 2 lots away for the summer camp program and it is time for me to have lunch.
I am being good with my diet. I ate a banana for breakfast and had my usual big iced coffee from DD. (okay, yes there is cream in it but not sugar! no one is going to mess with my coffee, ok? ok!)
For lunch I cut open a bag of salad (I hate preparing my own lettuce for a salad) and shake it out onto my plate. I add some low fat shredded cheddar cheese and add my light ranch dressing which has only one sugar and 30 carbs.
Everything was great!
Then, it happened. About 2/3, maybe 3/4 of the way through my nice big plate of salad...I saw it.
I have a friend who has had this happen to her time and time again - but it never happened to me. For over 5 years since she told me this happened to her ALL the TIME, I was truly doubting the veracity of it at all.
BUT there it was. A FLY. A DEAD FLY.
A DEAD FLY IN MY SALAD.
Great. Now what?! I tried to just push it aside with the tainted lettuce area like my friend does and ate another mouthful of salad.
I could barely swallow it. I dumped the remaining salad into the garbage.
I sat at the table drinking some water until my stomach stopped lurching and then I ate about 6 pieces of a fruit salad.
My lunch - yeah, my luck, huh?
Dilemma...throw out the whole bag or be a big girl and get over it... hmmmm...
Well, back to the kids who need me every 5 minutes or so...
Be well - Dawn
ps - check your salad
