Today is my birthday and I have spent it alone.  That is quite ok, cause you see, I had lots of paperwork to do that I have been putting off for about 6 weeks.  Now because of an undisturbed day, it is finished.

What  I would really like now is restaurant delivery.  That will definitely have to wait until my finances improve, if they ever do.   On the brighter side, I am meeting my cousin tomorrow and she is buying me lunch at a very good seafood restaurant.  I can almost taste the shrimp and fish!!  YUMMMMMMY

Finally, I began to get sleepy!  it was only 6 am and I had been up all night.  I will really be glad when my body realizes one usually sleeps when it is dark and up and about when one does not need to turn on a light .

May be soon, I will get back on schedule.  This is really irritating.  people say they never know when to call, they do want to wake me if I am sleeping.

It does not matter what one is weighing, reliable scales are always a necessity.  Wonder why your weight at home is always different than when at the doctor?  There are probably as many different types of weight measures as there are items to be weighed.

I will be very happy the day I step on my weight measure and it says I have lost about 35 pounds.  I guess that is not going to happen unless I start walking again and do it on a regular basis.

I cannot remember some of my passwords from one log in til the next.  I guess I will have to make them all the same–not a good idea–or make a list of where I go including my user name and password.

Some sites will remember this for me but some others I have to key it in each time.  May be that I should use something so simple no one wold ever think of it.

One day in the very, very, far future, maybe I will be rich.  If not rich, hopefully have enough money to do needed repairs with a few luxuries added.

I have always been disappointed that the master closet does not have an interior light.  As I get older and my eyesight worsens, I would really like to update the bathroom lighting fixtures.  Soft but very good lighting around the mirror or a lighting strip above it would be ideal and let’s not forget the 12X to 15X magnifying mirror.

My daughter has orientation Monday.  She will be going back to school for the fist time in about 20 years.  She has decided what she wants to be when she grows up.  Not only does she know what she will have as her major, she wants a ‘masters degree’.

I am very proud of her and will give her as much support as I can.  If orientation keeps the classes as they are now assigned she will go to school on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and be home before the children get home from school.  Could not ask for much better than that.

I do not like either but am very thankful that God controls these factors.  In my area, I think ice and snow are very dangerous because people do know how to drive in these conditions.  In truth, they do not know how to drive in the rain either, speeding along as if the sun were shining brightly.

We have already had one sprinkling of snow and now may get another one Monday.  Chance of snow is 90%.  Snow coming from the south is not good!  If we get snow, I will hibernate.  I best get some milk and other items tomorrow.   I guess if the electricity goes off, I will have a major problem—lots of cover on the bed and snuggle in with a pillow.

It seems that every time I hear some one say they have lost weight and step on the scales, I have gained.  Not really, but I do find it very hard to lose and that is partially because I do not eat the right foods and do not exercise as I should.

Lipofuze is reported to be the best thing on the market now for losing excess weight.  Maybe I should discuss this with my endocrinologist the next time I have an appointment.  Thyroid medication prevents one from taking some over the counter meds.

I guess it is time for me to look for another job.  I have not worked at K-Mart since two weeks before Christmas.  I depended on what I made there to buy my gas and pay the water bill and go out to eat once every other week.

The question is where in the world, at the age of 63 almost 64, do I began to look.  Even tho some do not believe this, I do have physical limitations.  This presents another problem with employment.

Wish me well!

Love Day or Valentine’s Day–one and the same, of course if you have someone with whom to share love, I guess Love Day is the best description.

Up until recently I shared Love Day with someone and he never gave me flowers because he knew that I am not one for cut flowers.  He did, however, one February 14 shortly after we were married give to me a pendant with 2 small diamonds in it.  I am still wearing it.

He knew he would never go wrong with a box of chocolates!  I always received other gifts and we would share the candies, as we both like chocolate, he dark and me milk.
