Have you picked a restaurant yet?

I think I'll take a rain check on the offer.  Thanks for the offer, but I want to spend my entire time with the family.

You know what can cause frequent need to urinate?

Diabeetis.

Think about it.

I had to go frequently earlier this summer, but that has really worked itself out.  It is also a tic associated with Tourette's.  I had it quite a bit as a boy.  I've been tested every six months for the past two to three years and my blood sugar and A1C both come back perfectly normal.  The latest test was on September 19, 2014.  Not only did it come back within a normal range, but my nurse said it came back perfect.  I continue to have it checked every six months, but I have had no signs of diabetes.  I'm certainly thankful for that.

I am looking forward to this interview on Friday.  It will only be 3 days after I officially got let go from my previous job.  If the Lord blesses me with this job, I know, without a doubt, there are things I need to do differently if I want to keep this longer than a couple months.  I fully intend on making the necessary changes wherever I find them.

I don't dare drink water on the road, especially on the turnpike where there are only two places to use the restroom.   Pepsi and/or Coke doesn't make me go to the bathroom as much as water.

That's scientifically impossible because Pepsi/Coke is basically water plus two diuretics (i.e. sugar and caffeine)

I guess it all depends on how my body wants to react at the time.  I will admit last week I bought a coke before I got on the interstate and still had to go to the bathroom at the turnpike rest area ~65 miles after where I bought the coke.  So, I will defer to science on this one.

There is nothing wrong in getting a Pepsi to drive home with.  True, it's not exactly the best way to hydrate, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.

That one plate of food and one helping of dessert was the only solids I have had to eat all day.  I slept all morning, so I skipped breakfast and lunch, then I got me a 32 oz. Pepsi on my way to my parents just to keep me hydrated and I'm having a coke right now, but I haven't had very many calories today at all.  In all honesty, I probably should have had more.

Only one serving of dinner + dessert = very little appetite?

Instead of a second serving of dinner?  I wasn't even full when I finished eating.

One serving of dinner is considered everyday life for most people, not being ill.

Who cares about what is normal for most people.  What is normal for me is two servings of dinner plus dessert.  Having only one serving of dinner for me is not normal and thus is guaranteed lack of appetite.

Bushie, how often does dessert follow dinner?  Give me a percentage.

When Grandma fixes dinner? 100%.  When she doesn't fix dinner? 5%

One good thing about being sick is that it may help me shed a couple of pounds.  This evening, I only had one plate of the casserole, corn, and baked beans and only had a small piece of cake and one scoop of ice cream for dessert.  I just have very little appetite.

I am ready to watch the NL Wild Card Game between the San Francisco Giants and the Pittsburgh Pirates.  My favorite team is in the NL Central, the St Louis Cardinals, and I do not like the SF Giants, I have to join sides with Grumps and WalterMitty and say "Go Bucs!!"

Yes, indeed, it was late breaking news today after 1600 that was from a gentleman from the company, that I sent my resume to Sunday evening, invited me for an interview either Thursday or Friday.  He asked me to choose the best time.  Since I have a cold, I asked him if we could do it Friday at 1000.  He accepted.  So, that's a very positive development.  I would have put it on here earlier, but I was about to sit down to eat.  I had enough time to put it on Facebook, but not enough time to put it on here, even though I wanted to.  This company is in Edmond, Oklahoma.  So, if I get this, I would have to sublease the apartment in Tulsa and move in with my grandmother until my Tulsa lease expires.

Eraser, I understand why you're not very excited, but I am...

Fellas, you know the exchange will go nothing like that.  I'm not sure I want to do it as the purpose of the trip is spending time with my aunt and uncle.  Maybe one of these days I'll drive up there and share a meal with him.  I'm close enough to KC being in Tulsa that if I get time I can drive up there.

As far as the cooking, Mom and my Aunt both help Grandma, so really, it's a 3-person effort.  Either my uncle or I helps by putting the ice in the glasses and pouring the tea.  If there's any carving to do (like the turkey at Thanksgiving), Dad always does that with the electric knife.

I'm not going to debate my views on the end time.  I was just answering a question.  Anyway, I am just relaxing tonight trying to make sure I'm feeling better to go down to my parents tomorrow afternoon for the weekend and several family dinners.  I'll be back to Tulsa Sunday.  I'll have my laptop and I'll put the resume on the cloud so I can still job search during the days Thursday and Friday.  If by some chance I have an interview one of the two days, I'll come back up here in the morning and go back after the interview.  Then, I have a weekend vacation to see my uncle in Kansas City next weekend.  We'll leave Friday and come back Sunday.

I live in Kansas City. How about meeting for breakfasts, lunch or dinner (just one, not all three)?

Doubtful I could pull that off.  Ill be with my parents and it'd be just a quick trip.

Any chance there will be some enchilada casserole on the menu? We haven't heard anything about that particular delicacy in a while.

Doubtful.  The meats will be roast, ham, pork tenderloin, and beef and noodle casserole.

It's just my mom's sister and brother-in-law.  They're on their way through headed to Florida next week, but will be back through in November on their way back home to Las Vegas.  They come through 4 times a year.

I use a mug and brush to shave with instead of shaving cream.  Inside the mug is a block of shaving soap and I use the brush and warm water to work up a good lather to spread over my face.  One block of shaving soap is cheaper than a can of shaving cream and lasts much longer.  You can find it at Walgreens or Walmart.  Regular shaving cream irritates my face too bad.
