Doctor, Doctor, Give Me The News......

My appointment was for 4:00 this afternoon. I finally saw the doctor at 5:00! He stuck his head in the door and peeked in before entering and asked if I was still okay. He said he always likes to check first when he is running so behind. It made me laugh. If it was any other doctor I would have been so pissed, but I really like this guy. This was my second visit with my new holistic MD. We were going to go over my lab work.

We sat and talked, and talked, and talked. He listened so carefully to everything I had to say. We talked about my health, my concerns, my new vintage shop, my hyper personality and much more. He never rushed me. He let me ask a hundred questions....and that is why I don't care if he is an hour late. I know I will have his undivided attention for as long as I need it when it is finally my turn.

It was another great visit with this amazing doctor. We discussed my supplements, my diet, what I'm doing, what I'm not doing and so much more. I have some things I need to change where my diet is concerned. I need to get off the gluten again and cut out the dairy. I need to eat more veggies....strange since I'm a vegetarian isn't it? He's right though.

My heart panel was excellent and that was good to hear. We spent a lot of time discussing my blood pressure. I've been off the meds for a few months, but my pressure isn't where it needs to be yet. We talked about things I can do to bring it down more.

I left there feeling so good about not just my health, but about everything. Can't remember ever leaving any of my former doctors and feeling that way. Thanks Doc!

I'm Here, I Really Am

Once again I find myself with way too much going on. I'm trying to prioritize, but first I need to organize. My clocks are starting to sell at the consignment shop, we opened Four Dog Vintage and are trying to add more items every week, I'm trying to keep Four Dog Day happy and our little grandson is due in a few weeks! The sign I have on my bulletin board at work says SLOW DOWN AND BREATHE....and it applies to home as well as at work!

Irv and I went to a big flea market on Sunday. We found some wonderful new things for Four Dog Vintage, but right now it is all over my house in varying stages of being cleaned, repaired and prepared for sale. I think there are things in every room of my tiny little house right now! I think we did a good job. Here is what we found....and it will hopefully all be listed this coming weekend.

The flea market started at 6:00 a.m. and we were there!

It was interesting to see how everyone displayed their wares.

I was a little disturbed by the amount of food items people were made me wonder where they got it....and people were buying it like crazy. thanks!

Some people just put their stuff on tarps right on the ground! It didn't make it very easy to look at what they had to sell to be honest with you.

Here are the things we bought.....this amazing antique toaster in excellent condition. Isn't it just the cutest thing ever?

A very old and rusty lunch box. Not sure why, but I have a thing about rusty metal!

This fabulous PINK clock that I am so in love with!

This wood sewing kit. It is actually full of old thread and needles. It's great!

So how 50's is this funky yellow tea set? Can you believe this? Just so cool!

This old mail box that Irv will be working on. It's a little bent and it makes it hard to open and close.

This darling little suit case....also in need of a tiny bit of repair, but I'm not worried....Irv is great at that kind of stuff! Right honey?

I also have a thing for shiny metal and I love these. I need a new one, so I just might keep it!

Who can resist an avocado colored bowl? Not me obviously!

Now we have to get it all ready and into Four Dog Vintage! Hope you have a great week. I'll be popping in to read some blogs later this evening if I don't fall asleep first!
