Well, yesterday I saw my doctor,who once again insinuated that he believes I am a fat lady who sits around eating bon bons all day,and that's why I'm fat,in spite of being told by me and Ken that I don't eat that much.(In fact sometimes I forget to eat.) And this is after looking at my chart and seeing that my thyroid level has been above the highest suggested level on a regular basis as long as I have been seeing him,(and he still refuses to raise the dosage of my medication).When we explained that even though I have lost over 40 pounds two separate times, the weight just comes back,and I am not a big eater,he just smirked.I hate this guy. He wanted to send me to a dietitian. I don't need a dietitian.I know how to eat. (He got a laugh out of that one. "Yes!" I am going to punch this guy in the head.) He already made me mad last time I was there by telling me that spending 2 hours mowing my yard with an old fashioned motorless mower,constantly mowing in a back and forth motion for 2 solid hours, was not exercise. Apparently it's only exercise if you get a gym membership.(Did I mention that I hate this guy?) So,the result is, he sent me for blood work AGAIN,saying he may have to double my dosage,(Gee,YOU THINK?!),and told me to go on a 1200 calorie a day diet. That's 200 more calories a day than I allow myself when I put myself on a diet! He will give me a new prescription after reviewing the results of my blood work.(And if he doesn't change it this time I'm outta there.) I have three months to lose weight before I go back to see him again. Doesn't he realize that it's not only difficult to lose weight when you're fighting a lazy thyroid,but pointless, because the weight always comes back? If I could have kept off both lots of weight I've lost,I wouldn't be having a problem now.
Anyway, let's get to today's doll.She's this 1930's dollhouse maid.
She's only about 3 1/2" tall, so she's not 1/12 scale.(Unless she is a child maid.)
She's painted bisque.
They kind of got a little crazy with the cheek paint.It's pretty overpowering. It 's in her hair, and one cheek and her upper lip are really red. It kind of looks like she has one of those red birth marks,or like the red 'stork bites' Ivy had on her forehead and upper lip when she was born.
Her arms and legs are moveable, but she can't actually bend her legs at the hip enough to actually sit down.So that articulation was a little pointless.
|She really looks more like a little girl than a grownup.|
