Crap Day

I felt pretty good yesterday. Because, you know, I was going to see a doctor. Despite my early rising I maintained a fairly good level of energy yesterday. Besides strolling through Sam's, I did laundry when I got home. I even did a little housecleaning and the dishes from supper before I headed off to bed.

Today is an absolute crap day. My left arm and chest are achy and my heart is beating it's own unique rhythm while I sit here trying to catch my breath. Yes, I do have another appointment scheduled ....... next month. And yes, do accept my insurance. The one from yesterday accepts United Health Care .... just not my particular plan. Which they should have known, since all my information, including a copy of my card was faxed to their office. Had they looked at the plan, they would have known.

Anyhoo, I am dragging today. The sky is gray and my toes are cold. Watching TV has become really boring. While at Sam's yesterday, I grabbed a rotisserie chicken for less than $5. I like them, but have not been buying them of late. Looks like the store in town weeds out the tiniest chickens they can find and sells them in the deli for as high as $8. I have a rotisserie and like to do my own, but trying to find a small chicken that will fit in mine is near impossible.

Only chickens on steroids are in the meat case, while the anorexic ones that died of starvation go to the deli. The chicken from yesterday was a good size and the leftovers are in the pot simmering and waiting for dumplings to join them for supper. My big accomplishment of the day.

Your ticker sounds like it might need some attention, nothing to wait on. Oh wow! chicken and dumplings with rotisserie chicken? I must try that.

Make sure they check your potassium! And eat a banana. And a potato.

Interesting take on chicken and dumplings. We know an organization that serves the rotisserie chicken in a gravy over rice for large group. It's relish.

Well, one might "relish" the dish, but I meant to type "delish."

I've found that Sam's does have the most plump rotisserie chickens around at an affordable price. I usually stock up with 2 or 3 of them and debone and freeze what we don't eat and save to use in recipes later. I hope you feel better soon.

that surprises me, that the previous doc accepts United but not your particular plan? they shouldn't be able to discriminate like that. this is one of the many problems with for profit health care.
