McDonalds: The Official Restaurant of the US Olympic Team

  I want to talk about McDonald’s “healthy options”. The only thing I’d go near at McDonalds is a cup of water. Let’s face it Apples are on the dirty dozen list… go buy an organic apple at the grocery store, apples don’t need to be wrapped in plastic.

In case you were wondering the pain was so outrageous that I didn’t even get loaded. Sad really. After visiting the doctor and getting my antibiotics and a hug it was time to head off to visit Kelsie. I haven’t seen her since the mastectomy. I’m not good with drains and they were hanging …
