You are a trooper going to church when you hurt and I know it does you are world of good and also all who hear you go or see you go. My mom was like that. She never missed a day and she loved it. Of course she is smiling down at me from heaven now. It snowed and we got out in in and drove, fun, but icy. We are having ice now that stopped. It is grey and messy but still we got some of the "white stuff" just like I wanted. I hope you have a nice time with eating out. Enjoy the upcoming holiday. It is getting close.
Hey Reed....what a difficult week it's been! Report cards went home on Monday....Wednesday was my turn to teach the RCIC class at church, Thursday and Friday were parent teacher interviews. The last interview on Friday was done with both parents via Skype, as the mom is dieing (stage 4 lung cancer). She is visibly VERY weak, bed ridden with oxygen....and, we were told that she will not make till Christmas. She's on 38!! Never smoked...never did drugs....is a health nut, but there you go!! You never know. I teach French to both of their children....a boy 9 y.o., in grade 4....and a little 6 year old girl in grade 1! Please pray for this family. They are constantly on my mind, and indelibly etched in my heart. I didn't go to Mass today...an asthma flare up. Though I use my inhalers, the concern of someone drenched in cologne or perfume slipping in a nearby pew, was enough to keep me away. I don't do well with incense or candles either...even the unscented ones. Making a quiche today, and thought since I'm at it, I might as well roll out dough for my Christmas Tourtière....and be ahead of the game.
Today, also, I plan to finish my Christmas news letters and get started on the cards :)
School's done on the 19th, but before that is the school concert!
I'm truly looking forward to being off for 2 weeks.
I went back to the ophthalmologist for treatment in my right eye (re. corneal dystrophy...they "plug" the duct so that more tears remain on the eye surface, but does not prevent you from shedding a tear!!). Len fell a week ago, and we were concerned because he had chest pains, and we were thinking all kinds of things....turns out to be a bruised rib. Thank God it wasn't worse.
What are your plan for Christmas?
It's mild here today, for us...32F!! I know though, our days are numbered
we're "gonna get it" soon enough!
Hugs and more hugs dear Reed....
hello reed, it's pretty cold here, ice on the decks. sunday night supposed to snow. hope it doesn't mess up my doctor's appt on monday. no car sales all week. ed's check will be $35 for 55 hours of work. I made $40 yesterday on bread, and I'm going to make a bunch this weekend, as the guild is tuesady. bg was 160 at 6 AM, so I took a small correction, and was 106 by breakfast. I don't know where you get your news, but there's not going to be any riots on Jan1st. personally, I read a lot of newspapers, I read the entire NYTimes and the Washington Post online almost every day, and I'm constantly reading about news and current events throughout the day. Ed keeps up with things too, he's very well versed in International news. I think it's important to get your information from a wide variety of well respected places.
-9 below here this morning with -35 below windchill. I have my long johns on gator. Sorry you could not sleep. went to coffee with the retired gang this morning. roads terrible with alot of ice holes in the road. BG 94 on wakeup Pauly
Oh Reed, piercing cold here today. Also I think we got about 6" of snow and rain, and it has all hardened on the sidewalks and they were glazed over. I was so afraid of walking. Took me 30 minutes to tiptoe 3 blocks. I am still feeling energized and festive. Slept well. Did a lot of cleaning. Made some origami ornaments. I was in Macy's and a little tyke was screaming to his mum that he did not want to go see Santa - he was afraid of him. The mother said he had to have his pic taken with Santa for their Xmas card. Poor kid.
People were insanely underdressed today and I really did not feel sorry for them. Who should be going out in 2 degree weather with just a sweatshirt?
Here is my tree. I really like it.
Thanks for the welcome Seagator. I'm not 100% sure how this works. What I'm interested in knowing is if I want to read past posts about humalog cost and info on glucagon, how do I find specific topics? Thanks.
Hi Reed- I hope the blue funk has left you by now. I know how you feel not being able to do many of the things you used to do. I too cannot do many things that I used to do and I am not 86. I used a walker for several months and just recently switched to using a cane. My cold is much better as is Jim's. Today it is going to be over 60 degrees, too warm for me. It will drop to the 40's by tomorrow. Has Chico returned to your home since he bit you ? Cats sometimes do that when they are moved from their chosen comfort spot. I am sure he will forgive you for trying to move him. lol I hope you are having some warm weather, more like Florida. Have a great weekend. Cat
