Caffeine – I’ve done pretty well with cutting caffeine out of my diet. In the last week, I’ve only had two Dr. Peppers and a few glasses of tea. Other than that, I’ve mostly had water.

Cats – I’m a big softie when it comes to starving or needy creatures, so it wasn’t a hard decision for me to start feeding the skinny feline who showed up outside. She typically shows up for kibble after I get off from work, and she rewards me for being big-hearted by pooping in the driveway.

She must have kittens tucked away somewhere, as she appears to have been nursing. I wonder how long it will be before she brings the kids over for dinner?

Wal-Mart Buggies – Every stinking time I go to WM, I get a faulty shopping cart – one that squeaks, rattles, wobbles, or wants to veer to one side or the other. I suspect those smirky door greeters are to blame, since they always select which carts are up front. I bet they pick out the most raggedy buggies they can find and laugh behind their false teeth as we try to push them into the store.

Prilosec OTC – Two words… miracle drug. It’s made a huge difference in the way I feel and pretty much eliminated the pain that I was feeling in my chest. I always assumed that acid reflux would have a burning sensation, but it turns out it can feel like pressure, too.

Great job resisting the caffeine! I love tea, so I don’t drink canned soda. That’s funny about the buggies at Wal-Mart. We seem to get good ones, especially since our store just replaced all of theirs. The seatbelt straps and buckles were all broken on the old ones.

2) I love cats
3) OY!

Hi Kiddo-
Just checking in to see how you’re doing.

I laughed at the remark about the Wal-Mart greeters laughing behind their false teeth. Our retirement specialist at work tells us that we can always become a greeter at Wal-Mart after we retire (over my dead body).

I am very happy to see you have discovered Prilosec–I knew it was acid reflux, having had it myself.

Take care of yourself now and have a great day!
