I did not get my nap.  Why not you ask?   I sat right here on this slow computer, going here and going there.  I did get a little warmer but am getting chilly again.  Weather Bug on the puter claims it to be a warm 28 degrees.  Warm for those folks around the Great Lakes and states bordering Canada.  Thanks for the invitation, but I think I will stay right here.  This will not last 2-3 months.

DH did not make a decision about the cable, guess I’ll have to do it.  Wonder what I’ll decide.  If I had faster service, I could crochet more or maybe even do more some tidying in the house.

The cable company returned my call and maybe, just maybe, I can get Road Runner service instead of dial-up.  I sure hope DH agrees.

With the new service, I could call anywhere within the 50 states and the call be considered local.  Yes, free long distance anytime and at this time I have no need to call elsewhere.

The new service would only be about $25. more than we are paying now.  It would be worth it to me as I have to wait about 2 minutes for one page to load on one of the sites that I visit.  I would even be willing to give up one of my suppers out for this.  I am not getting any suppers out now due to hours that DH is working, so little sacrifice there.

It is 3:45 and I am in need of a nap.  I have not felt this sleepy in the day time in a long long time.  I can’t even remember the last time I napped in the day.

DH is gonna get leftovers for supper so I think I will lie down.  Maybe I will even be able to get warm.

One thing is for sure,  I don’t have to worry about the phone ringing and waking me.

Another day to share by myself.  My head still feels as if it is not back to normal size.  Maybe the med will soon kick in and give me some relief.  I have been cold ever since I climbed out of bed, the thermo is set on about 74.  I wish we had gas heat, electric heat is what I consider to be cold heat.  Hey! I have heat!

Mother is 96 today.  In her late 80′s, she would climb up in the attic if there was anything up there that she wanted, climb up in a chair to reach things on shelves too high. One day I was asking her to please not do this, I was afraid that she would fall, get hurt and it may be days before she was found. She replied, I will be fine, I never go in the attic or climb up in a chair that I do not first ask God to help and protect me. What FAITH.  I was ugly and told her that God also gave her common sense and please not do such anymore it only made me worry so she said if it made me worry she would stop.

I wish the phone would ring and someone I want to talk to would be there.

I would really like to see 4 of my grandchildren.

I am suppose to be at work today at 1:00.   Yesterday when I went in to get my script filled, I told them they needed to find someone to fill my shift.  Hopefully, I will be able to go tomorrow.

I am so depressed and really do not know why. If I thought it would do any good, I would just scream to the top of my lungs, but that would only make my throat hurt. Am I depressed because I have not felt like checking on my mom since last Wednesday, have not worked any this week (only scheduled 12 hours, so I really needed to work them), is it my thyroid problem, keeping myself confined in the house with no contact with people practically except thru this slow computer or what?

Probably just having a pity party for no apparent reason.

Depression is not good for me, when I smoked, I would almost chain smoke, now I just want to eat. It also makes me a very sensitive person, cry for no reason, or get angry over nothing.

Reach out and touch someone.

Did not go exactly like I thought it would.  Well, part of it did.  I saw the doctor, we discussed my ailments – being tired, feeling no better than I did before surgery, high calcium level, occasional chest pain and shortness of breath.  After asking about the history of heart problems in my family, he recommends that I see a cardiologist.

This is just what I needed to hear considering I still owe over $10k because of my surgery.   My insurance is a supplement policy only because I can’t afford 7-8 hundred dollars a month for major medical.

Stress is good.  LOL

Yes, the day is almost gone and what have I done productive?? Not much– (1) Balanced DH’s checkbook for November and December-  (3) drank almost a pot of coffee by myself- (4) reviewed the other bank accounts- (5) called about my mom’s room rate at the facility- (6) followed up on phone call received Friday- (7) called cable company for price comparisons, sure hope husband will agree to transferring everything to them, this dial-up is driving me crazy- (8) made a mess at a web-site and am waiting on an email from them to fix it- (9) read a few blogs- (10) checked my site meter to see who visited- (11) took 2 packs of okra out of the freezer for supper that I prepared this past summer- (12) this was only productive for me: watched my 2 favorite soaps- (13) in a few minutes, I will attempt to clear some of the papers from the dining table. I think that is enough considering that I still do not feel well.

It has been so cold here today. I only went out to feed the dog. It was his choice to go out, I am not cruel to animals (some humans maybe). The thermo on the front of the house states 40 degrees and the computer states 37 degrees. It is 4pm. I am sure glad the sun is shining.
Okay, I must turn the other way and start on the table.

ever graduate from school??? This is failing, terrible. I sure am glad I scored better on the Bible Quiz. Please don’t tell the grandchildren.

You paid attention during 40% of high school!

34-50% As much as I hate to admit it, this is probably the most common level. Turn off the tv and go to a library!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

or at least I thought he was.

He came in teasing me about the mail being delivered on Sunday. You have to know us to even get a smile from this. Anyway, he has a very dry sense of humor and DD#1 hardly knew he could smile until after she moved away.

Anyway to the title here–I had supper ready except for frying the smoked pork chops when he came in. After the teasing, I said if you had called me when you left work this would have been done. He replied I told you I am working from 6:30 AM until 6PM. He had not but we won’t go there. At least now I know not to worry when he is not home about 5:50.

You may ask why are you worried about his supper and you sick. Goes back to my southern heritage–”always take care of your husband. Always have his meals prepared and his clothes clean”. I try to have his meals ready unless he tells me different except when I am really, really REALLY sick. I did his clothes for years, even ironed them for a while. At 1 job I had, I was working 50-60 hours a week (this was after the girls had left home) at this time he started doing his own laundry and just hasn’t stopped. Even now with him working 77 to 80 hours a week, he insist he do his laundry. Who am I to argue.

Anyway, I’ll not worry about his being late now.

A fellow blogger, Angie, had this quiz over on her site. Just for curiosity sake, I took the test. I am ashamed that I am not in the WORD more. My score in no way indicates that I am a Bible scholar or that I am well-read. I have been in church over 40 of my 60 years. Neither does this score guarantee me a place in heaven. My guarantee is the fact I believe in Jesus Christ and my faith tells me his blood has washed away my sins to be seen no more by my judge, God.

You know the Bible 100%!

Wow! You are awesome! You are a true Biblical scholar, not just a hearer but a personal reader! The books, the characters, the events, the verses – you know it all! You are fantastic!
