~We got an early start to our day yesterday when our phone rang at 4am. Our daughter had been having chest pains all night and they weren’t getting any better. Jim and I threw some clothes on, picked her up, and took her to the ER. After more than 3 hours and several tests to rule out heart or lung problems, they decided it was something she ate. What a relief! But since being diagnosed with multiple food allergies earlier this year and having surgery for the hiatal hernia, she has to be ever cautious about what she eats. Not an easy task…
~It’s annoying when you unload your groceries only to find out the mascara you bought is missing. Self checkout. My own fault.
~The weather has been lovely in my neck of the woods. We are enjoying and taking advantage because we know that this will not last!
|This is at Bronner’s. Just thought I’d share. 🙂|
~I have a whole list of things to do this winter and want to get started. When Jamie moved out, she left some things that she wouldn’t be needing. It was fine with me, but then I decided that I want to put things in order in my little house so I packed up what was left. I think it was more than what we thought and we haven’t had time to haul it all to Jamie’s house. We’ve decided to store it in the garage for now. First on my to-do list – having our furniture and carpets professionally cleaned. I have my own carpet cleaner, but like to have it done professionally every couple of years. What better time than after we’ve downgraded from three animals to one and want to make the now spare bedroom into a guest room?
~I’ve been in a funk lately. Maybe it’s the changes lately, but I just feel as if I haven’t accomplished enough in my simple little life. I spent my 20s, 30s, and a good deal of my 40s raising my kids and that was an accomplishment in itself. I wouldn’t change what I did, but I pretty much gave up my hobbies and it’s been so hard to try to pick them back up. I just need a good kick in the pants, I guess.
~And then there are some days that I get so much done and days like today that I just can’t get started. Monday. Enjoy what’s left of it.
