But first, dinner at 
The Little Red Wasp

I wanted PotStickers

Sherri and I get two different things
And split them

You get to try new things that way

Corned Beef Reuben Sandwich

Ye Olde CheeseBurger

Fort Worth is not like Dallas

The blocks are small

And there is plenty of room for pedestrians.
Older (and older style) buildings in FW.

Sundance Square for some people watching

The population of Dallas is nearly double
The population of Fort Worth.
FW seems more progressive, as well. 

FW is home to many museums and art groups.

And finally... The Bass Performance Hall
Right there. Walking distance. 

The Bathroom Stalls at the Bass

The Bass is small, and very intimate 

Out typical program pose!

Met a new friend after the show!
All kinds of good things happen in the LoCarb world!
Thanks, Elaine, for meeting us after the show!

Phantom Of The Opera was an awesome show -
World Class! I just could watch it all day.

Ahhh the rooftop scene... 

A splendid time was had by all.
I have waited for this for so long!

quitters sometimes win

Sometimes it is not that we can't do a job,
Sometimes it is a wrong match from the start.

For example, 
I once had to quickly abandon my dreams to become
A Nurse Pole Dancer.

Too much competition from people who have seen the musical Rent.

In a few weeks, SOMEONE will know 
They backed the wrong horse...
For better or worse.

REAL Hospital "Food" 
And they wonder why people can't wait
To escape that form of "hospitality"...

Real Office Food... 
Mmmmm leftovers

Good choices, even though it IS PUFABird
Low Fat has a place in Low Carb... especially at first.
But only if you want to drop pounds.

I did indeed back the right horse when I chose Low Carb!
Despite the Carb Lovers telling me I would die,
And fail, and how we can't live without Bread, and Candy.
Yep. And oh yes... My Kidneys would "asplode." 

So the other day, when I quit a case 
- It was just too heavy... I pulled a muscle in my back -

The Dear Mom Tested me this - "Bye, Felcia!" emoji.
And I KNEW I had made the right choice.
A long-term relationship has enough history 
To "earn" a little sarcasm or anger
When our choices don't please other people.
But short-timers... not so much.

For some reason, the Client's Mom asked me to skip Phantom.
Such an important night for me.
Why would anyone ask me to miss it?

Now. Tickets sell out in like 15 minutes for this.
I bought mine in June. At 2 am. I was nearly too late.

Oh yes.... the Naysayers will say there are still tickets available
The night of the show. But not good ones... and not 2 seats together.
So, I am struggling to find the right words here...
But .... no... just no... !!!
And no guilt. We have to learn to try and then adjust...
And do it without guilt. 

There is so much more to weight loss 
Than just watching carbs or calories.
It is a full recovery / sobriety program!

change is in the aria

Lots of stress

Lots of good food

No one can say that I am not on point!

Oh yes.. and my hair turned red.

Not sure why... but it is Mahogany Red for sure.

Happy Birthday to Chuck!

Went with an old Nurse Buddy to an Uber class

Got the new car repaired....
They want good numbers... 
(Can't blame them)
But they didn't plug back up the brake light... 
That meant another hour-long trip....
They fixed it, though... thank goodness!

Meat and a Salad. Good combo. Never gets old.

Pediatric Nursing is where I seem to belong...
When I am not doing Hospice or Home Health...

Bosses Day... I bought the bags and wrap...
I think I did ok!

They had quite the lower carb spread!
Watching carbs is a current thing in my office.

This pic won't turn the right way no matter what I do!
Rocking the socks

Burning sage to rid the Evil

More good food

My new set of friends like how I am growing a set...
...Of Balls...

I told the new boss the new case was too hard...
(What have I got to lose?)
I insisted on better repairs... 
(The brake light was out...)
And I sent some junk back on Amazon....
Again... what have I got to lose?
What are they going to do?
Come to my house and argue with me?
