Dawn asked me to take her to the casino. We were there for 3 hours, and I lost $20 of the money she gave me to play with. She lost the rest of it, when I gave it back to her. She's got it bad, like my Mary, and My Sally did, but at least I didn't have to drag Dawn out to the car, kicking and screaming.

Sorry LFF.

Storms are about over with....over around KY lake now.

We got pea sized hail but not until the storm was through here. Was really weird.

Lovely tribute to your mom Margie.

The other day I was going through some boxes and I came across a poem Michael had written to me. It's now in my bible so I can take it out and read it as often as I want.

Getting there with the packing. The whole house is full of boxes.

Have a great day everyone.

This morning, Dawn had an 8:00 hair appointment that I took her to, but I found I had about a half inch of wet snow to clean off my car. We had about an inch fall before it tapered off to light flakes, which are falling now. Hard to tell from the weather radar what we'll end up with.
After the hair appointment, where Dawn had brought a Gerbera daisy to her hairdresser, we went to Save a Lot to buy chicken thighs at 99 a pound for Chipper, and a few other things. Came home, and took a long nap. Felt good!

I am about to lay down for my nap LFF and as you say it feels good to do that.

I went to work mid morning for a couple of hours then bought a few groceries that were on sale this week.

Before I went to work I brushed Muffin. She likes to be brushed but she does not like to be still for me to do it. Right now she is laying on my bed just where I want to lay. Guess I will go to the other side. She is sleeping so peaceful with her little head curled like in a fetal position.

Lightfoot, any addiction is sad and difficult for all involved.

Glad, we had huge thunder last evening and mucho rain. Today it's gusting wind and tiny balls of snow.
I saw the doggies. Angel is failing. She didn't wish to go outdoors, but after much loving and coaxing she did go. Bless her. My little Rascal is still full of energy, but he is learning certain commands.
I went to Walmart to pick up motor oil for my car. That's about it. I enjoy having lots of computer time. A vast world of British shows I have yet to view.

I came back to say I had not read back far enough with this thread. I see that Spice had been here. I am glad you found a poem your hubby had written to you. That is awesome and something you will now cherish forever.

Joyous, it has turned cold here and chance for snow this weekend. Almost unheard of for April at Southeastern Missouri. Oh well I guess we will get what we get.

Good to see you here again Spice. I'm happy you found a poem that Michael wrote. Now you have it in a safe place. Thanks for your kind words about my mom's poem and picture. My dad will be gone 19 years as of April 22nd. I going to ask my friend to do the same thing she did for my mom. So I already have a picture and the dedication that was written for his funeral to. Sounds like you have been busy packing now. Take care my friend. Hugs, Margie

Today, I took Chipper for a walk on the boardwalk by the river. 30 actually felt pretty nice. There was very little wind. Yesterday, I took him to the Allegan Sports Complex. Was 34F, but a little breezy. Chipper doesn't mind the weather, as long as it's not pouring rain. He likes his walks. Not doing a whole lot today. I think the recliner is calling to me.

Just got back from walking Chipper out here on the sidewalk. Walked him about a half hour. 34 here- warm enough for shorts, but my face and hands got a little cold in the wind.
I cleared a bunch of stuff off the shelves in my walk-in closet- my USB turntable, 45 RPM records, Monopoly game, a Chess set, and a couple of boxes of Mary's medical records. Put them in the alcove behind my desk. Had to pull the desk out and rearrange the power strips for my computer stuff to make room, but now I have a 6 foot section of shelf open.

I went to a funeral this morning....we drove about half hour to get there. The lady that passed was from my church but she grew up in a country town and that is where the service was. It was me and one other lady (the other lady from our group went to her grandson's wedding in St Louis.)

My day started out with a blanket of snow but the roads were clear by the time we started our little trip.

After the funeral we went to eat a late lunch (Chinese) I enjoyed myself but not use to the foods so kinda felt ucky this evening. I ate lots of veggies and just a little of the noodles they make. I stayed away from sweet sour items and ate the shrimp dish and a few pieces of fish.

Oh the lady was 90 years old and so she lived a good long life. she had been in a nursing home we visit for about a year now. Her birthday was two days before mine.

Oh yes Glad! God understands.
I visited my Mom today, replaced batteries in her doorbells, and talked a good while till my Sister came over. The three of us then priced a lot of items for the Memorial garage sale. Following that, we cleaned out the freezer side of my Mom's side-by-side, as well as some of her stand alone freezer, which we hope to empty and sell for her. Then went home, took Chipper out, came back in, cut up a chicken thigh for Chipper, had some mini-corn dogs, cut up another chicken thigh for Chipper, and here I am at the computer again.

Just got back from my Doctor's appointment, and she was very pleased with how I'm doing. I've lost 29 pounds since December. My A1C glucose was 7.5 in January, deeming me a diabetic. My A1C today was 6.2. I know my glucose meter, sphygmomanometer, oximeter, and my scale are all accurate, because the readings were so close at the doctor's office! There was only one discouraging point at the visit today. She's putting me on a low dose blood pressure medicine.
Dawn is making me pancakes and eggs. Then, I'll take her to a meeting, and Chipper for a swalk.

Congrats, Lightfoot!

Today I filled a container with a mix of garden soil, crushed straw, worm castings and Azomite for transplanting my lettuce. It's becoming too spindly and tall and falls over easily, so it needs more earth in which to grow stronger.
I couldn't get any Aveeno , lotion, out of the pump, so we cut the bottle apart and I took out enough for a few weeks and put it in a small glass jar. I see no sense in tossing out remaining lotion, ketchup, toothpaste, etc when it can be saved and used.

Now I go to make corn bread to eat with my chili.

Well, joyous, you wrote "Today I filled a container with a mix of garden soil, crushed straw, worm castings and Azomite for transplanting my lettuce. It's becoming too spindly and tall and falls over easily, so it needs more earth in which to grow stronger.

Took Dawn to Grand Rapids for a Neurologist appointment- terrible traffic! Dawn took me out for breakfast. Came home and found that her 2 doctors on separate sides of Holland needed releases signed, so I drove her to Holland, got that done, and drove back to Allegan again, stopping in Hamilton a a Church thrift store.

Pretty quiet here. In middle of cleaning house so am having a rest. Still have a ? foreign body in rt index finger so will see the doc next Wednesday. Last chance to clear up after 5 weeks!! If she wants me to go to ER I shall ask for referral to private doctor as saw a ? unqualified African doc there on one occasion and don't want him putting a scalpel in my finger. My daughter said these foreign docs are tested for English language but not competence so think he's slipped through the very big holes in the net.
Visited daughter on Tuesday but she was very difficult. I said we were fed up with the burden of caring for mil as we have to do everything and would prefer she went into a Care Home. Got a lecture on how we needed to do more and then when asked said she would not help us if we got needy as she was too busy with work and did not live locally!!! I am still cross but don't want a row.
It's Friday 13 th so am being very careful and avoiding going out in car as have recently had several near misses when driving. I was driving out of supermarket parking space slowly reversing and this woman drove right behind me and if I hadn't double checked would have hit her. I was furious and nearly got out of my car to shout at her. So ignorant and selfish. I always wait if I see reversing lights on, not drive right up behind the reverse.

The three times I've had cars hit in parking lots have been when I was waiting for someone to back out, and someone else backs into me.. They need to build parking lots with pull through spots!
Have no big plans here today. Might go to the hospital for a lab test, maybe get gas in the car (Burned a lot of it yesterday, and now we're up to 2.85 gallon). Will take Chipper for a walk later too.

Gas goes up and down too much....

I went to pharmacy this morning for the insulin, needles, test strips and lancets.

Stopped at Teen Challenge Thrift store and found two nice purses. Did not need them but they were really cheap so got them. One is a tan cloth type, and the other is a red leather type.

Son found a nice hand made chest of drawers but too pricey for him at $199.00 It was made from pine and very well constructed. I told him there will be another one sometime that cost less.

Went to Save a Lot and bought milk, as well as a couple other things. Came home, sat a while till Chipper barked at me, meaning "I've got to go out now!"

I've been absent awhile. Friday?
I went to Value World, a resale store.
I bought a pink, fleece top which I washed
and am wearing now. Bought a Midi-skirt,
without putting my glasses on, thought it was
size 10. It's a 14 and way too big. Oh well. Also
2 sheer curtain panels. We cut circles to cover
the rain barrells, keeps silt and air-born dirt out
of the garden water.

Yesterday I went to a Baby shower. I hate dressing
up and debated wearing jeans. Thinking it might not
be appropriate, I wore slacks. At least a fourth of the
women were wearing jeans.

Today we have ice and rain early. The icy branches
fell from the tree next door onto our roof. No damage
that we know of. The ice melted as temp increased.
Rain has fallen all day and the creek is very near our
garden.
Thankfully we still have power. Two of my children
have lost power.
I hope things are good where you are.
At 8:00 P.M. I will watch "Call the Midwife". I really
enjoy that series. Then "UnForgotten" on Masterpiece

Due to hazardous road conditions, I didn't go see my Mom today. However, I did call her and talk with her a bit. She has one of those caption phones, and it has problems with a few words. I did take Chipper out a few times today, but not for very far, and I sure didn't drive anywhere. Cleaned a couple table fans to prepare for warmer weather. Then I had to vacuum because of the dust I blew out of the fans. Then I had to empty the vacuum, and that meant taking a trip to the dumpster with a bag of trash.
Relaxed most of the day, which included an hour nap in the recliner with Chipper.
