Things to eat.

Howdy from Texas. I’ve been awake since 5:15 but really can’t stay for a couple of excellent reasons: 1) I’m still tired; and 2) our maid service comes today. They’re supposed to be here around 11 but frequently show up two hours early without warning, which means I have to get out of bed by 8:30. I apologize for this exceptionally stupid paragraph. Really.

Last night while Sam stayed at work two hours late I spent a little time online shopping for diabetic food products. Here’s what I ordered from
Aria is a soy protein powder for milkshakes. (I love milkshakes.) I used to buy it at Trader Joe’s when I lived in southern California. And Walden Farms is an amazing line of surprisingly tasty products with NO SUGAR, NO FAT, NO CARBS and NO CALORIES, which includes chocolate syrup, salad dressings, dips, barbecue sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, peanut butter, marinades, jelly, alfredo sauce, you name it. I don’t know how anybody can make food with no calories, but everything gets great customer reviews so I decided to order a bottle of the chocolate syrup. I’m figuring it will make an awesome milkshake and also a chocolate phosphate if I buy a bottle of club soda. (I haven’t had a chocolate phosphate since I was 25 years old. Frankly, I think I’ve waited long enough.)

And now for a startling revelation concerning my night from hell (see post) last week. Believe it or not, I don’t think this had anything to do with Ultracet, the new pain medication I took at dinner-time. I BELIEVE I ACTUALLY HAD FOOD POISONING. I won’t elaborate here for a number of reasons, but as a result I’ve decided to give Ultracet a second chance because I have to stop taking Naproxen. (Naproxen can cause kidney damage in diabetics.) Check back often for late-breaking updates.

I’m going back to bed now. Thank you for reading this.
