|Another finished project; Donna's Shawl|
Tuesday December 21th: Up early today and we had a totally packed schedule at work on RR. Jody the former assistant worked today. She is on break from dental hygiene school. She lives life with such passion. You can feel it where ever she is. Bill went to Mount Vernon this evening for a winter solstice party and I did 3 loads of clothes and finished wrapping gifts and getting them out of the guest room. Tomorrow when I get home from work Bill's Mom will be with us through Christmas. Now all the packages are wrapped and are packed in boxes depending on their destination and all lined up on the couch in the library. It looks like Santa's shipping center. I am so sorry I didn't take a photo.
Wednesday December 22nd: I took a new road to work today It is longer by miles but I think it was 7 or 8 minutes faster because the traffic is less and several less lights. It is a good one to know but I heard that they do not plow or salt it in bad weather. We have had a totally packed schedule at work and I worked late by almost an hour. When I got home Bill was there with Toula and he hadn't given dinner a thought (I was waiting to see) so I had to come up with something for everyone, which was just fine.
Thursday December 23rd: I had my last physical therapy appointment today. I graduated! I still have work to do but I can continue progressing at home. I cannot wait until January when I activate my Curves membership and start exercising there again. I spent most of the rest of the day working on Bill’s Christmas present. I am scrap booking his retirement and retirement party for him including some 400 photos that were in the 20minute slide show he put together. Then Tamara and Halie came for dinner and to visit with Toula.
http://www.yarnswifts.com/ It is so easy to store, easy to use and pretty to look at, in my eyes anyway. Bill got it one year for me for valentines, what a terrific gift! For dinner tonight I made steak, gnocchi in a Parmesan butter sauce and steamed green beans, with salad. When Bill heard that Tamara and Halie were coming he decided to cancel his ‘nite out’ and stay in with us. We all had a good time and really enjoyed Toula being with us and entertaining us with her stories.
Sunday December 26th: I slept until 10am and didn’t get up until 11:30. Amanda came for lunch and to help me set up meds for the next month. I am changing 4 meds this time. We are doing what we can to switch to generic. We could not get any insurance plan that would pay anything for brand name drugs and they will only pay a percentage of generic drugs. I take a lot of medications and they are really expensive and this was going to make it impossible, I mean it, truly unaffordable for us. So I am praying that the generics work. We will check the results in blood tests around the end of January to see how I am doing. So I am still exhausted after Amanda left I went back to bed and slept two and a half to three more hours. When I woke up Tamara was texting and saying Hi and I was texting back when the doorbell rang. It was Tamara and Halie and they just 'dropped by' 20 miles out of the way, to say Hi. We had a great visit and when they left my emotions were on top of the world, Who would drive that far to just check in on me?
