Thank you so much for the sweet encouragements today, Karen, Sara, Jackie, Christiana, Robert, Theresa, Kaye, Melanie, Keecha, & Pat. You guys put a smile in my heart. James and I are starting off on a new pact today - yay us!
This is a picture of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis this morning. It's cold, but pretty.
As for today's challenge: So far today, I bought an order of chicken subgum chow mein, and two Groupons for local restaurants. I went to the doctor this morning, but they didn't collect my co-pay. I went to the pharmacy to pick up my drugs, but they hadn't received the fax yet. It's going to be good for me to track all this stuff.
I gave up sweets for Lent. I thought it would be easy, but it seems that there are more sweets around this time of year than at Christmas-time. All this self-denial will make me a stronger person.
As for the neurologist, he was amazing. He was older than me -- score one for him! He was not arrogant -- score two! He was smart and kind and personable -- score three, four, five! He more or less told me the whole story of my life. From my history, he knew exactly what was wrong with me. I have migraines which cause me to be dizzy all the time, they cause me to be nauseous all the time, they cause my neck and shoulders to ache all the time, they give me optical illusions all the time. I thought that the migraines I suffered through all my life went away after menopause because my head doesn't hurt anymore, but the migraines I have take over my vision and balance. I am going to try some epilepsy drugs that may take away all my symptoms. He said that if it works, I will be amazed to feel relief because I've lived with this all my life and I think that my normal pain is how I should feel. Anyway, it was nice to have someone understand exactly what was going on with me.
P.S. he also told me to get a SAD light.
Keep on trucking, Peeps!
I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy thanks to the generous encouragements of my crew today. Thanks so much Karen, Keecha, Sara, JuaNita, Debra, Pat, Nirmala, & Theresa.
Happy Lunar New Year! Happy Mardis Gras! Happy Fat Tuesday! Happy Shrove Tuesday! Happy International Pancake Day! Happy Pizza Pie Day! Happy Bagel Day! Whew! We have so much to be thankful for.
It's four of my friends' birthdays today. I'm going out to Happy Hour with one of them in about an hour. How fun is that? I doubt that we'll have pancakes, but we'll probably have some chicken wings.
And the receipt for all this revelry? I will bring it home and place it in my new 'Receipt' envelope. Thanks for the great idea, DC!
FYI, this SAD light is a miracle worker.
Go out and find something to celebrate today!
I'm feeling the love today from Heidi, JuaNita, Melanie, Sara, Karen, Keecha, & Robert. You guys got me walking on air!
See this photo? That's the treat that I just can't quit. My plan for when I win the lottery, is to have a massage therapist on retainer and to have a massage every day. I'll build a zen room in my new house and do my meditations, writing, yoga, and massages in there. So far, Money Matters isn't saving me any money, but I do have my priorities in order.
Tonight I am teaching the art class again. Last week, we only had one kid. I told her that maybe this week more kids would come, she said, "Or maybe it will be just me again. That would be great too!" I must admit, it is stupendously easier to teach one kid rather than 20.
Stay warm and cozy, My Friends.
I'm deeply appreciative of the kinds words accompanying the encouragements from Karen, Sara, Pat, Keecha, Melanie, Debbie, Robert, JuaNita, Lamoine, & Minhchau today. You guys have charged my energy for the day!
So...this is a new track for me: Money Matters. I hesitated to take this track because I really hate to think about money and it's one of my main sticking points. I guess I really want that stamp. Luckily, it started off on an easy note...making food at home instead of eating out. Living alone, it's hard to make stuff for just one person anyway. I am not a fan of leftovers, so I usually eat everything I make at one fell swoop. And now, the money part comes in. If I saved half my food and ate it at another meal, I would save money. Well, duh. I'll give it a whirl. Maybe tomorrow. Bonus...Weight Watchers will love this new plan of mine.
This is another photo I didn't take. It is the earth in her cradle of clouds. Doesn't it make you feel all cozy?
Enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday, Peeps!
Wow! This is what happens when you spend your whole day away from the computer. I am awash in good vibes from my buddies, Melanie, Sara, Keecha, Karen, Michelle, Robert, Lamoine, Pat, JuaNita, & Christiana. I appreciate all your kind wishes.
I figure I did at least 2 hours of house cleaning today and that should count for about 300 calories burned.
This SAD light is amazing! Today I got in my 10,000 steps and then some. I haven't done that since October or something. I wasn't even trying. Much. I cleaned the entire house. Yes, I did. I did laundry. I went shopping with my daughter. We colored while we watched TV and then we shopped some more.
This is a photo of the ice breaking up on Lake Superior near Duluth. I didn't take the photo, but isn't it spectacular?
May your Saturday evening be filled with wonders!
