Friday Stuff

Our air quality is much better today. But Sacramento and even San Francisco are in hazardous air quality. Also, so many people still missing and I’m afraid they probably lost their lives in the fire. Very Sad. We are updating our emergency plans and have a bin with instructions ready to go. Honestly, you just don’t know if it could happen to you so better to be prepared.

My labs came back an myKappa light chains did go up 2 points 😦 to 16.1 and my Lambda down to 12.0 and the ratio went up to 1.34. All still in the normal range so I’m not going to sweat it but still there’s a tiny part of me that wants it stay lower.  But it’s ok. It’s still well below normal (kappa is 19.1 and Lambda is 26.1) so it’s all good.

Today was a gym day so I can get back to my regular schedule after being sick those 4 days. I like to go Sunday,Tuesday, Thursday.  So I will go Sunday and that puts me back on track.

I went to Safeway and got most of the rest of Thanksgiving stuff. I just need cottage cheese for the nut loaf and sour cream and probably some salad stuff next week.

Monday is my big day in court for my name change. I’m not worried about it. It’s only step one of the process to get the certified birth certificate from NY. I’ll start that paper work Thanksgiving weekend.

Tonight is a homemade pizza. I’m doing one with sausage and peppers and one with mushrooms and olives.

I just love this pinecone image.

A busy start to the week.

We were at Costco at 9am and back home by 10am. We left home at 8:30am. So a quick turn around. Primarily we needed to pick up Bonnie( the border collie) anti-seizure meds.  So we picked up cheeses, lunch stuff, Sierra Pale ale for B, and granola bars plus butter.

Then after putting everything away, I made turkey chili to put in the crockpot for dinner. I’ll grill some tofu for B. Then I put on a pot of brown rice for tonight and the week ahead.

My daughter has Mondays off so she vacuumed for me and I mopped the floors.

I also was able to download my stuff to LLS so as to get my part of our insurance covered. I am very grateful for this grant but the website is a disaster. It freezes up and then it locks you out for 24 hours if you mess up. But I persevered and got it done for September.

Tomorrow is my appt with Legal Aid for my name change. We’ll just have to see how helpful they are.
