I just got an e-mail from Ali, the producer from The Dr. Oz Show, and she said that my show is going to be airing on Friday, Nov. 18th. It's on a 4 pm (EST) on ABC. I'm SO SCARED to see it! Thankfully, it's just after my surgery, so I'll be drugged up on Vicodin and hopefully not so critical of myself ;) I really hope that they send me the "after" photos with Dr. Oz soon! I would like to have it when the show airs.
Renee came over last night for wine, and I told her about the whole Dr. Oz thing. And then today, I met her and Jessica for coffee to re-tell the story to Jessica :) I ordered tea again--I still haven't had coffee since the day I gave it up a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't believe how bad my headache was from not having it, so now I just don't want to start drinking it again. And my anxiety level went down a lot when I gave it up!
When I got home, I made a Snickers protein shake for lunch--I haven't had one in almost a year, and I forgot how good it is! It honestly tastes just like a Snickers bar. You can find the recipe here on my recipes blog.
Renee asked me if I wanted to do a night run this Friday. It's on 11-11-11 at 11 pm, and it's an 11k run. A nice play on numbers :) I decided to go for it, since it will be my last big run before surgery. It's not a race, but there is a big group of people doing this run. Hopefully it will be fun! I just hope I don't hold everyone back because I'm not exactly a speed demon.
Our neighbors brought over a couple of bags of cat treats today--they felt so badly about Phoebe being locked in their shed. That was super nice of them, but they have NOTHING to feel badly about! Phoebe does that crap to herself, and it's her own damn fault she got locked into the shed. But it was nice of the neighbors to think of her. And of course, as I held open the door to take the treats, Phoebe ran outside again.
Speaking of cats, I am going to bring Paolo to the animal shelter. We've been thinking about it for a while, and I never wanted to take him in in the first place. I feel horrible about it, but four cats is just waaay too many, and I cannot deal with that kind of stress after my surgery. I've been trying to find Paolo a home ever since we found him in our shed in the spring, but I've had no luck. He's such a nice cat, but I just can't do it anymore. I don't want to be the one to take him to the shelter, but Jerry is working all week. I'll have to figure something out. Anyone want to come claim him?? I would love to see him go to a good home.
Well, Jerry is going to be home in 15 minutes and I haven't a CLUE what I'm making for dinner. G'night!
