On Life and Living -
Tuesday January 11th – Today was 01/11/2011 and I didn't even notice all day. I worked @ RR and we had a full day. Since all the charts are in the computer I don’t ever write the date. The weather forecast was threatening snow all day and we drove home from work under overcast skies and no snow. Bill had the table all ready set and looking pretty and tonight I made tilapia fillets w/ seasoned breadcrumbs that were really good and a rice Florentine casserole, steamed broccoli and Bill made the bread and we had some great dipping oils from my friend Alice that we tried out tonight. They were good and I used some of the lemon one to season the broccoli, it was great. We kept looking out the window throughout the night and it was just after 8 when we noticed the snow. Yikes the girls disappeared so fast but they both got home just fine no problems. It is snowing like crazy right now.
Wednesday January 12th – This morning there was 3 inches of snow on the ground but it was pouring down rain and it was an easy drive to work. We had a full schedule, people were calling to cancel but others were calling trying to get in. However at the end of the day one of Nancy’s patients cancelled and she took my patient and I went to Curves early. I can tell all ready that my arm is getting stronger. There is one machine that I couldn’t even budge without a ‘push start’ from my left arm and tonight I was able to get it going without help. How cool is that. At lunch today I got teriyaki chicken from the restaurant nearby so I had a very light dinner; pea pods and hummus some salad with sesame vinaigrette and a hunk of bread. I got one sleeve of Macy’s cardigan off the needles tonight.

He made a mistake on the top of the blue one and we liked the mistake so much he is changing up his pattern for a while to see what he thinks. I took dinner to Tamara’s tonight and she had her first knitting lesson. Halie wants Tamara to knit her a blanket, so she has good motivation to be knitting. She has lots of time too while she is taking kids here and waiting for them there.
Friday January 14th – I went to Curves this morning and then did some grocery shopping on the way home. We started looking at new cars. We stopped at the Chevrolet dealership and looked at the Chevy Cruze. It is okay but it didn't knock me over. I think what we are looking for is a somewhat small car, we aren't even sure if we are going to replace Bill's Civic or my Accord. I think we both think the new Accords are bigger cars than we like but we haven't really looked at them, just on the street from time to time. We both do enough parking in the city to really appreciate a small car. We also want good fuel economy but probably not a hybrid, Bill wants a real trunk for privacy and safety for our 'junk' and we don't want to break the bank either. We spent almost half of the 'new car fund' on medical bills last year, thanks to the great health care system we have, and that was before Obama care, our deductible is worse this year and they won't pay anything at all if we need a brandname drug. (That might be another story but really I don't see that there is an answer so - whatever.) Back to the car, if you have any suggestions that you think we should drive just send me an email. (email@example.com) Friday night group met at Bill and Colleens. We celebrated Karen's birthday even though it was earlier in the week. Collen made some amazing soup and we all had a great time.
Saturday January 15th - It was the first time this year to work in Totem Lake. I always look forward to being there. Those guys make me smile. Do you know Dr Mark shaved off his mustache in September and I never noticed? How weird is that? I think it is because he has his mask on so much that I don’t know what he looks like underneath. Bill was at a meeting all day today also and he got home even later than I did.

Monday January 17th – okay I was totally exhausted. I did a little preparation for family dinner tomorrow and slept the rest of the day, literally. Mom called at about 5:15 and woke me up. Bill had gone to a guitar lesson and I had fallen asleep on the bed. I slept on the couch most of the day. I was way too tired today. I can’t believe that Annieville’s birthday party took that much out of me but gee, I just couldn’t get it together today.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me. I would love to hear from you also so drop me a line at : firstname.lastname@example.org or my personal email address if you have it.
