Only twelve days left until surgery.  I go for my pre-op at the hospital on Wednesday.  

I must admit that I have eaten nothing but crap for the past three days.  We had hot dogs and chips and pie and cookies at work on Tuesday and it carried over into yesterday and today.  On the 4th we went over to have barbecue at the home of friends and I ate cake.  I know this is my last hurrah but eating crap makes me feel like crap.

I have discovered a new artificial sweetener called Swerve that is really good.  It isn’t bitter and measures cup for cup with sugar.  I don’t want to get hooked on any sweeteners but I do need them in my coffee and tea.  I’m going to pick some up at the local grocery and start using it when I need it.
