T is for .....
i"m beginning not to feel good, there's been a three day flu going around where I work and I wonder if I'm next? Rats if I am, cause family is coming in for Christmas.
Under the street lights I have to declutter my car, and tonight is the only time that I have to do it. I've been procrastinating.
Also, I ate supper out tonight at a spaghetti place where I use to eat lots and they have downsized their portions. It is hard to walk away from the table still hungry. It takes a few minutes for the brain to realize that there is fuel in the syste
But I haven't eaten there in a long time and it was my hideaway when I first moved here. Whenever stuff got too much, I headed there and had my favorite spaghetti, mm... tonight it was still good. Only I wanted some garlic bread and it didn't come with the meal. Rats again........
I like to read right? So I've never focused on the New York Times Reading list, right? So when I was at the library last week to get any of the books, you had to put your name on a list. So, I said ok, and had her put my name on all 15. This way as the books come in, I'll be able to sample new writers. I like historical novels, so you can learn about the different time periods.
Now, I have three of them in the car, and it will be tourcherous to leave those alone until I get the car clean.
Well, off to get my clothes changed, and clean out the car.
After Christmas, got the car decluttered but not swept out. And I got everyone Christmas gifts and I drove my daughter back and met her boyfriends parents.
My kids told me that their dad is going in for a biopsy tomorrow, and the prognosis isn't good. He's been fighing cancer for 4 years. and well, what can I say. I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone, and he wasn't nice to me. Surprisingly, after the kids told me, I really had a rough day or two, thinking of him and maybe there is always a tie to someone whom you've had children with.
Financially, I should not have driven my daughter back, yet, if the rules of sparks apply to other things in my life, I needed a break from the financial diet that I've been on. I've eaten more, but it hasn't been junk food. I ordered protein, veggies, drink when I've eaten out, and there wasn't much inbetween food. I haven't swam or walked, but will start back tomorrow as well as focusing on keeping the car clean, and vacumming it, I'm ok through January, but by the 31's I need to add employment to what I'm doing, and start increasing it. I paid cash for Christmas and owe nothing on what I bought and now have a better idea for next Christmas. By next Christmas I want to have a gift for everyone and some extra to hit the sales.
The food? And exercise? Continue what I've been doing only increasing it when I have it.
