Over the past week, food has begun to taste better to me. I can eat almost anything I could before the transplant. It is such a great feeling. I am even putting some weight back on.
We finally got our treadmill put together (almost). We purchased a treadmill for me to build my strength back up and get some exercise. It came in with about 10 broken pieces. We called the manufacturer and they shipped out the broken pieces. They said once the parts come in, they would send someone to come out and put the treadmill together for us. So, we called when the parts came in. We then were told the technician would call us. After a week, no call. We called back and finally get a hold of the installer. He says he will be here in 2 weeks to install. So he comes out in 2 weeks to install. He makes it clear he is not here to setup the machine as the manufacturer had told us, only replace all the broken pieces. Arghhh. I ended up setting up the machine. Come to find out, we are still missing pieces. We ordered the thing at the end of December. Do not order direct from Proform. They suck!!!!
|Nolan's pink cake.|
One more quick story. A couple of weeks ago, I had to make a cake for Nolan’s Cub Scout awards banquet. I was told it had to be a Viking theme. He had just made a round red Viking shield with a snake on it. I thought that would be perfect. Well, come find out, it is almost impossible to make red frosting. I used almost a full thing of food coloring, and the frosting still came out pink. We later found out it was a cake competition. Poor Nolan had to walk into the Den meeting with a pink cake with what looked like a white turd on top. Poor kid…
