I am having friends and kids over for dinner tonight and I am looking forward to it. It will be very good to have a little laughter in my home, even if it is only temporary. So, there is much to be done today...and also for the holiday, which is looming. I am still not sure how many will be here for dinner on Thursday, but I must confess...I am dreading turkey day the most. Well, not as much as Christmas, but alot. Mom always had such a huge role in both days, but mostly Christmas. This year, I will be doing great just to get through it.
I was forced to buy a new Christmas tree, my traditional one that I had just bought for last year, will not fit in this place. It was a HUGE and BEAUTIFUL tree...it was seven and a half feet tall and had hundreds of lights...but it was almost 6 foot across the bottom. Ummmm...not in this apartment. I did sell the old one on Craigslist for a really great price - $75...and I paid $200 for it last year, so it was only used once. The woman that bought it was so excited that she called to thank us for selling it to her, she said it was perfect. So, anyway...I ordered a new tree, its a corner tree...so it is literally a "slice" of a Christmas tree. It arrived this week and I had no where to put the box so i put it up. It is the stupidest tree you ever saw. There is stands, in the corner...and even decorated...it just looks plain stupid. Sigh...
I did go to the doctor this past week, I hadn't seen him (my neurologist) for a year! A whole year! That seems impossible...last year at this time, I was in that damned wheelchair. The news there was good of course, considering that I couldn't walk back then. I did have a couple of things that need watching and a couple of tests that need doing when I have health insurance. Otherwise, good news.
I got my first manicure E-V-E-R yesterday. It wasn't so bad, and I love the way it looks. Doing my nails has become impossible for me, and when you are trying to look professional...it's a necessity. So, Janelle and I went and had them done. It was great!
I have been so bad at keeping up with blog world. Looking for employment is time consuming -- it has changed so much. It's almost all done by computer, and sometimes you have to just visit website after website. So, that is where I have been spending all my time. I could end up flipping burgers, who knows? I have been asked what I am doing applying in a place like this when I have a resume that looks like that. Hmm...I do believe it's called survival.
I will be better with every one's blog this week. Have a great weekend.
