A Little This & That

Monday, December 05, 2011

I am a Virgo and as such make lists, plan, carry my planner wherever I go, you get the picture. However, I think God laughs at me and loves to keep me on my toes.
I am so happy my helpers and I have finally gotten the park decorated for the holidays. That is always a chore and this year I am dreading the thought of getting it all down and put away. I label it all so I know exactly where it goes each year so it does help. However, I am thinking with DH taking radiation every day it is going to be a bit more problematic this year. Hopefully I can get my helpers to do more this year.
I am making time to go to the gym 4-5 days a week-I get up and go early so it doesn't interfere with all the normal things I need to do. Having a buddy to go with is making me more accountable and that is a good thing.
I had to go to the dentist this afternoon for a cleaning. I was happy when the hygienist told me I had no bleeding and things were looking better. She had thought I was going to need a deep cleaning but I have been really diligent with my flossing and bought a water pic and things are improving so just maybe I won't need it. It is not something I would look forward to and it is expensive and with no insurance, not sure it would fit in the budget.
Hubby has to go to eye dr tomorrow, I have a finance meeting on Wed, he goes to oncologist on Thur and Abbie goes to the groomer on Fri. It would be nice to have a couple of days with nothing to do but it doesn't look like that is in the cards for me anytime soon.
Dad is doing ok-he is doing better with taking the diuretic so the fluid isn't building up in his legs like it was. I am worried if he gets sick this winter, it could be bad but he is 100 so he has had a good long life and I will do what I can to keep him healthy and the rest is up to The Lord.
We are awaiting the birth of a new great granddaughter-she is due Dec 30, but she doesn't think she will go that long, but who knows when Kilee will arrive. This will be the 2nd great granddaughter born and we haven't been able to get back up north to see the kids since last Sept 2010. Dad doesn't seem to realize how limited our life is but we just can't take off and leave him. We hope to get back up north in the spring so working on the logistics now to make it happen. Hoping God doesn't have other plans!

    Meetings and appointments do chew through the days like a hungry dog with a bone. Glad you are taking time for you. Hang in there but do start making plans to travel. It might work out better than you think. I'm sure God will understand. HUGS!
