Today is the first day of the last month of the year. I like first days because there is such a hope and possibility attached to them. I had my regular doctor's appointment today and all my numbers were good except for my weight. It is the highest it has ever been. I am going to surprise him when I go in March for the next appointment. I will start eating healthier and exercising more. It is crucial for my self-esteem and my health.
Heidi was home for the weekend. Unfortunately she was ill for 3.5 of the 5 days she was home. She did not even feel like decorating the tree and she has been looking forward to that for a long time.
Hopefully, the next 3 weeks will go by fast for her and she can have some fun on the Christmas break.
Her cat, Mango, has become my little orange shadow again. He follows me around and cries a lot during the day. He likes to be in the same room as I am and needs a lot of attention. We call him AAD affective attention disorder.
I picked up my 100 CTMH page protectors from Jolene today and had lunch with her at McDonalds in Ada. I then tried to get to a grocery store from there but as usual got lost and had to use the GPS. It took me for a beautiful ride along the Thornapple River--and I finally found a store. I bought all the ingredients for lasagna-something I haven't made for a long time. I think I did the layers wrong though because I had too much cheese filling and noodles left and no meat sauce. Oh well, it will feed us for a couple of future meals.
Apparently we have one more decent day before the snow comes. Tonight's forecast was for
snow the next seven days. Yuky Yuki.
I am going to do some Christmas journaling now for a project I am working on in December-a sort of memories and inspirational journal.
See you tomorrow.
