Good morning all! Easy day here, I think. Dawn will be helping a friend move, and I have no plans, other than to take Chipper for a walk later. Tonight is different though. We'll be going to a charity dinner for the forgotten men ministries- $500 a plate. We'll be in the $20 a plate section.

LOL Nothing like knowing your place, Lightfoot. I would perhaps be in the $2.00 per plate section. It sounds like a good cause and any amount is helpful.

Glad, I'm cheering you on.

2Anne, at one time I did final cleanup on new apartments and it was hard work back then. I can imagine how hard it was for you. Still, after a good rest, you probably feel better.

I think I'm almost back in good health. I knew the kitchen floor needed scrubbing, but hadn't summoned the energy. This morning, I decided it's time and thought of getting an sponge mop from the shed. "No, I said. I'm not quite there yet." I got my kneeling pad and pail and got down on my knees. I actually felt more energetic when finished. Showered, had lunch of Clam chowder and a Cornmeal muffin. After my mid-day coffee, I went to visit my gr.doggies. I hope I'm not jumping the gun, but I believe the little Rascal may be learning .

Back home, I'm snuggled into my recliner. It's cold outside.

Dawn picked up her expensive prescriptions today. She got the 'extra help' we'd applied for. Instead of $700.00, her cost was$16.70! Those are the two tier 4 drugs. The other dozen or so should be a lot cheaper. Gotta go get dressed for dinner.

Was the dinner Black tie and Tails ?
I'm glad to ear that Dawn will get help with the cost of her medication.

My day:
I'm in the planning stages of the 2018 garden which means planting seeds in potting soil, keeping them moist under a Gro-light. Living in a Mobile home means space is at a minimum and much thought goes into every foot. The bench with the Gro-light has housed our Distilled water supply all winter. Therefore, it had to be unloaded and moved to my bedroom. Nothing gets it done like doing it, so. All I have to do is buy potting soil and in early April I will begin putting seeds into paper egg cartons, watering them gently, turning the Gro-light on and Spring can come.
Glad, I also plan to try the planting seeds in halves of a lemon rind. Have you done that? It seems that one would use lemon only for acid loving plants, so maybe high acid tomatoes ?

I also visited my Gr.doggies, took little Rascal outdoors, played a bit of "Go get Piggy" (His stuffed pig).
We walked the garden. I saw one bunch of Crocus flowers. I have renewed hope.

No flowers here yet. Snow is almost gone.
Most of the guys at the dinner woe nice casual clothes. I wore dress pants (that I couldn't get int last fall), and a nice polo shirt.
Dawn took off with Fred to the casino shortly after one, I had a garden salad for lunch, then took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk. I found a credit card in the parking lot here by the apartments, so I sent a facebook message to our manager, who told me which apartment he was in, and I brought the card to his wife (He was sleeping).

This morning, I took Chipper for a walk at Jaycee Park here in Allegan, across the old railway bridge and back- about a half mile walk. Went to the pharmacy, and picked up a hundred test strips (with-0- co-pay),picked up cheeseburgers at McDonald's for Chipper, and came home to have a bowl of cereal with sliced bananas.
Prayers for you and John, Margie.

We have quite a bit of snow here today and the path is icy. I will have to clear it a bit as mil coming for lunch and I don't want her falling.
We had friends over last night for a meal and there was a lot of clearing up this morning. My husband has gone to do final jobs in an apartment in a near bye town. I don't like him working on the Sabbath but he usually plays golf so wanted to do something!
Heard a very nice Christian service on the radio this morning from N.Ireland with lovely hymns.

We took Chipper for a walk out here on the sidewalk. About every 10feet along the sidewalk by the next apartment complex, there's a pile of dog excrement. That really bugs me, because I always carry 2 bags with me, sometimes 3, and I pick up after Chipper!
Today, Dawn is going out for lunch with the lady from upstairs, and I'll be home here with Chipper. I have no plans.

Not much to tell today. I'll call my doctor's office this morning to see if they have a cancellation, so I can get in and talk to her about this 'pins and needles' sensation in my left thigh that keeps me up at night sometimes. I'll take Dawn to a noon meeting, but I don't know if it'll be warm enough then to take Chipper for a walk. I may have to go by myself. It's 24F here right now.

Sad when managers do nothing and tenants refuse to follow the rules.

Today I went, again, to a local Thrift store. I managed 2 small area rugs, 3 bath-size towels (For use for puppy clean-up)a lovely fleece, zip front top and a V-neck fleece top, all for $7.83. I was delighted to be able to share a 50% off coupon with gentleman checking out in front of me.

I visited my Gr.doggies and son as he had this day off.
Also went to Family Farm & Home store for 5 lbs of yellow potatoes and a small bag of yellow onion sets, which I hope to set out in a week or two.

My keyboard quit on me and I'm glad that I was able to figure it out for myself.

This afternoon, Jamie, who moved out of our complex last week, and moved to Wayland, a half hour away, called me, and asked if I can come pick up her kids in the morning, and take them to school here in Allegan.
She explained to me that the serpentine belt went out on her car, and she has an appointment to get it fixed tomorrow morning. Old 'glutton for punishment' me, said yes. She has no friends in Wayland to help her, and doubt if she has any such friends in Allegan either. I drove out there with Dawn this afternoon to find the place, and back to the schools in Allegan too.

Oh, about my day:
Went to Family Dollar. Bought a cheap pillow for Angel's bed. I had started with one pillow and realized that she needed two. I finished her bed and will take it to her soon. I walked the little Rascal (Chuckie). He loves the big outdoors. I also played "Fetch Piggy" awhile, but not enough to please him. I AM not a Spring chicken.

Thanks, joyous. I found the place in the dark this morning, and got the kids to school on time.
Came home, and after a breakfast of corn flakes and a bananana, I took Chipper for a long leisurely walk around town.
While shopping with the girls this morning, Dawn bought me 3 Duluth T-shirts (with pockets!).
Had a couple of chicken strips and some left over casserole for supper.
When Dawn gets back from walking Chipper again, we'll go to Save a Lot for groceries.

I'm afraid so. Now that she has an income, she goes out with girlfriends several times a week. Every Dad has to let go sometime, and I'm no exception. I just tell her that I'm there if she needs me.
Today, I opted out of going for government commodities. They only give canned foods, juices, maybe some cereal... Dawn told me not to bother today.
I will be taking Dawn to Holland this afternoon for another appointment. Took a shower this morning. No other big plans for today.

I was awake at 5, watched the news. Hastings schools, North of here are closed today, due to a note threat found in a bathroom. In the last couple of weeks, we've had threats and school closings at 5 districts just around here. Aren't kids taught the story of the boy who cried wolf anymore?
Got on the computer for a bit. Took my Blood glucose test, blood pressure, checked my pulse, oxygen level, and weight (Which I'll only do once a week now).
Had breakfast of 4 slices French Toast, and 4 links of sausage. Took a shower, washed my hair, and shaved.
And here I am at the computer again!
Will take Dawn to Holland later today.

Today:
Breakfast of hash-browns and one egg, coffee.

Lunch of Spaghetti, Broccoli, Sweet potato, Garlic bread.

I haven't lived alone since 1994. There are pluses and minuses to living alone. I just hope I can keep myself on the straight and narrow.
Took Chipper for a long walk this morning, about three times our usual walk. I was concerned because he hasn't defecated for 2 days, but when I got him home, I took him out back to the pet walk area, and he did his thing. And yes. I picked it up!

My day:
Washed three loads of laundry, including My Pillows which I bought at least a year ago and thought they needed refreshing and puffing up.
Not much else. I did walk around to see my son and the doggies. Angel shares her handmade bed with the little rascal. Both are always glad to see Grama.

I took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk at about 10 this morning. Took him for a walk up by Highpoint apartments at about 1 this afternoon. Took him out past the office at about 5. Going to take him out again now.
