Today, my niece turns eighteen. My ex---the kids dad, turns fifty-nine (holy crap!). Tomorrow, my father would have been seventy-seven. Hmmmm....makes me think of MY 49th coming up in a couple of months....no, let's think about something else.
Martin Luther King day...is there mail today?
I am reading the best book --- THE HOUR I FIRST BELIEVED by Wally Lamb. I can't read it fast enough, my eyes are really causing trouble. But the book is great.
We went to Sunday church this week, instead of Saturday church. Sunday morning services are much more formal, most people in their Sunday best, but more traditional. Saturday evening services are come as you are, jeans and t-shirts and much more relaxed. I have decided I like both of them. There are advantages to going on either day, but I enjoyed being out and among people fairly early in the day on Sunday. We went to Panera afterward, and had lunch. Then a shopping trip for Mark -- he will be going to Atlanta this next week for training, and needed more clothes. We also needed to go to the grocery store, but by that time I was shopped out, and I am lucky enough to have a husband that doesn't mind going on his own.
I actually got out and walked yesterday, in the morning. I can't go as far as I would like, it's been too long since I have walked at all. The weather was somewhat cooperative, the temps in the lower teens, which I can manage okay, as long as we aren't in the zeros..which is why I haven't walked in so long, the winter this year has been brutal. Like everyone this year, I am ready for winter to take a hike.
Okay...this post is even boring me. I'm out.
