5 GRATITUDES (Thank you, Heavenly Papa!):
  • For 2 free and 2 discounted Zoo Light tickets from my sister and her husband!
  • For getting all my Saturday subcon work done.
  • For the cough subsiding in the evening at Zoo Lights.
  • That I'm no longer on the steroid medication.
  • For cough drops.
  • Woke up with a headache.  Have had headaches most of the day for most of the week due to sleep deprivation.  I know you cannot catch up on sleep.  My blood pressure was a bit high at 136/83, which is high for me.  Also some trigger points have developed at the base of my skull which I am going through work through throughout the day and ice down.
  • For stress, the past two nights I have been using my Tens unit because I know that helps better relax my muscles than anything else.
  • Going to not use Pinterest unless I'm on wifi.  Since I started pinning more recently, I've gotten a lot more followers.
  • My husband was worried because I was coughing so much a couple hours before Zoo Lights he suggested we stay home.  I didn't want to as we spent money getting tickets and I didn't want them to go to waste.  Sunday is the last night and I didn't want to go on that night because my sleep has been off and because the next day is school and I have tons of stuff to do during the week.  My cough subsided at the Zoo and I don't even think I coughed the whole time.  I wore thermals, had a had, jacket, thick socks, boots and I really was warm the whole time and at some points, even sweating and hot.

    The zoo parking lot was filled so we had to park down the street from there I think on Van Buren and Priest and hike the way there.  But there was a path that cut from the corner of that intersection to the zoo entrance.  My husband and I both took our cameras and the tripod and he got a lot of great pictures.  I got some pictures, but the kids mainly had my camera.  We got there about 7:30 pm and didn't leave until a little after 10:30 pm.  It was nice, but would've been nicer with a lot fewer people.  I've never seen so many people at the zoo before.

    It's been probably 3-4 years since we've been to Zoo Lights and the first time for my husband.  Grateful that my sister gave us 2 free tickets.  The total cost for us was $26 plus gas, rather than the $48 we could've paid, so that saved us $22.  We'll take it.
  • We were blessed with a box of vegetables from my sister's husband's sister of eggplants, Italian and summer squashes, orange peppers.  She had too many and wanted to give some away and we were willing to take some.  Very kind and generous of her.  We will put these to good use.
  • Took my heart meds, hair supps, Multi vitamins, fish oil, probiotics, cinnamon, Zn, Mg, Ca
  • Drank tea with ginger, turmeric, lemon, green tea. 
  • Used vaporizer with hydrogen peroxide.
  • Taking the remainder of the antibiotic and cough syrup with codeine when needed (did not use any Friday).  
  • Get IE bookmarks onto IE11.  My old laptop could not upgrade even to IE8 (I think).

  • Get Saturday subcon work done.

Breakfast  (7:45 am) - eggs scrambled cilantro, turmeric rice.
