Well, it’s a quarter till eight as I start this entry.
There’s a load of laundry in the dryer and a few piles of dirty laundry in the bedroom on the floor. It can wait until Sunday……..
Tomorrow I have to get up for an 11:00 am hair appointment, then get Daniel packed and ready to be at my mom’s by 12:30 so that we can be at the office by 12:45 because the bus to Branson leaves at 1:00 promptly. Promptly? We’ll see LOL
We get to spend THREE HOURS at a shopping mall, then eat at a nice restaurant and then see a show. Then the bus will bring us home. The weather is supposed to be cold and rainy, but still in the 40s to hopefully there’ll be no ice.
Now the story is supposed to change on Sunday night….they’re already talking about ICE STORMS and I’m freaking out thinking that there’s no way it can storm like this past January when we lost total power for 16 days. Pleeeeeeeeeeease, God, don’t let that happen again! My ds missed two weeks of school – all the schools in the area were without power, plus it was too icy for the buses to drive around safely. I pray that it never happens again! It was a total disaster!
I’ve got a party in Springfield to go to on Tuesday – and would you believe that last year when we went it was icy, too? It’s the Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon for those of us who volunteer with the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks. Hopefully the weather will be nice and “M” and I can make the trip east.
Anyhow, I’ve posted about the ADA School Walk for Diabetes and hope to get a response or two. Our official Walk will be in January….on the 28th I think? It will be on a Tuesday, the second day of Catholic School Week. Or will it be the 29th? I’ll post the date when I get more information…..
I’ve got to get my Christmas cards out in the mail this coming Monday and my dh told me that it would be nice to send cards to all his staff. That means I get to make out 22 more cards. Oh well, I love Christmas! And love sending cards!
Time to go check on the laundry and maybe get ds packed tonight so I don’t have to rush in the morning.
And how are YOU doing today?!?
I am fine. Not so hypomanic as yesterday but just feeling a bit hyper.
I just saw my psychiatrist last month, so don’t feel the need to contact her about this. Just going to take it one day at a time and if I start feeling myself enter into a dangerous zone, then I’ll tell her. Probably ought to mention this to dh, though. He hasn’t said anything if he’s noticed. But then he’s been tied up with his workshop and getting things done for Christmas.
Workshop: Christmas goodies for his friends at work. This year he’s building quilt racks, a book shelf and candle holders for friends to give as Christmas gifts. The $$ he earns goes towards what we spend for our family on Christmas, so it’s a good thing.
Only problem is, we don’t see him often and sometimes that’s rough on Daniel and me.
Daniel has a dental appointment today, so lucky him, he gets to leave school early. And afterwards he’ll get treated to his favorite restaurant in the world: International House of Pancakes, IHOP. His favorite item? Not a pancake, but the chicken strips with honey mustard.
So I should address Christmas cards today but will do them tomorrow. Sheer laziness.
I think I’ll go upstairs and take a quick nap.
OMG I’m just cracking myself up today!
Don’t you love the chipmunk? Tee-hee! It’s so darned cute, I couldn’t resist.
Anyhow, I’ve been busy today so far. I’ve done the minutes (FINALLY) for the Region II Council of Catholic Women and called all the presidents to remind them of our next meeting (our Christmas party!!), I’ve typed a family letter to send out with our Christmas cards (I always SWORE that I would never do a thing like that to my family, but none of them are aware of the freaking YEAR we’ve had, and I’ve decided they all should know.
And a year it has been………..
January: ice storm, going without power and water for 16 days and having to stay at my mom’s apartment, three adults and one restless 7-year old.
February: ds getting pneumonia and missing two weeks of school.
March-April-May-June: dh getting dx’d with CANCER and having two major operations and missing three months of work.
Thank GOD dh’s cancer is in remission, his prognosis is excellent but GEEZ what a terrible few months that was.
And now I’m sitting here waiting to hear SOMETHING from the surgeon’s office in Columbia about a consultation……will I qualify for WL surgery?!? will Medicare approve me?!? when can I have surgery after my approval?!?
I think I need to calm down.
Anyway, I’m alright.
Yesterday was the very successful dinner for the Priests….they all enjoyed the dinner. My SOUPer roast turned out wonderfully, if I don’t mind saying so myself LOL All the ladies pitched in and it was wonderful-good food.
Okay, time for me to boogie………..
Maybe I’ll bbl?!?
