After initially waking up a bit grumpy, I have managed to achieve an artificial high from the cup of coffee I just had. This is so pleasant, that just to be on the safe side, I am having another cup. I do want to keep the level of caffeine steady. I do not know of any other kind of drug that works as well, so I am pleased that this is a rather innocent one. It does give almost immediate results and I can always count on it. A cup of coffee has never let me down, unless I have unwittingly had a decaffeinated one and could not figure out why it was not working.
I had a nice enough mother's day, because for the main part, I made it a nice day myself. Of course, it was also nice that my daughter did not forget me on this day, so that made it extra special, but my day was going well already and I have determined that Sundays are really my favorite day of the week.
I spent it very leisurely doing chores that I had not got around to during the week and took times out to sit behind the computer or watch political discussion programs or sports on television. The best programs, at least the ones that I like, are on on the weekends, so that is when I get all my television watching done. I did have to switch off the television at one point because of my disgust with the points of views expressed by the guests and the ineptitude of the host of one program, whom I suspect of not being capable of the job, but that's what the on and off button is for.
This morning I am having my gastric band emptied out some and I am looking forward to that procedure. Well, I am actually looking forward to the result of it, because I expect to be able to eat with more ease. It would be nice if I could eat two pieces of toast with cheese instead of just the one I am barely capable of eating now and that always leaves me hungry. I made pasta with a cream sauce last night and had a small portion of it, but I was hungry for more. I put the leftovers in the refrigerator in the hope that I will be able to eat more of it tonight. Of course, it may take my stomach a while to loosen up after the gastric band has been emptied out more.
It is not going to be a hugely exciting week, but on Saturday I am going to pick up my new glasses and I am looking forward to that. It will be great to be able to see better than I do now and I expect a big improvement. Hopefully, they will be good for a long time and the cataracts will not get worse too quickly.
