I have "met" so many people via "social" networking. Especially Laura, Janet and Marybeth. You three have helped me thru all of my trials and tribulations especially of the past year and a-half. I hope you have a fantastic wonderful day. Have one for me ok?
I am so thankful for my friends and family. You guys have been so supportive of me and helpful in every way. I'm not sure how'd I've gotton thru the past two years without all of you.
To all of my friends and family and to all of you that don't know me..Have a wonderful Holiday Season
I got back from Destin yesterday. What a fantastic trip. I have never been to Destin before, we were in condo's right on the beach. I mean, got up in the morning (any time I wanted to) and drank my coffee on the balcony looking over the ocean. Walk down the steps and you're on the beach. White sand, clear water. Oh heavens it was wonderful. My little freckled self has a bit of color. Didn't get really burned at all but am a bit red. Ate seafood, brought some home. 23 of us went. Some of my friends have been going to 20 years. This year was my first but I'm planning on saving for next year. I would love to have that to look forward to every year.
We shared food with other Condo's. We had spaghetti one nite, Finger foods and appetizers another night, taco's , home made pizza another night. Of course we all brought wine too. We walked everywhere. We had wonderful weather. Not a drop of rain anytime at all. The days it was cloudy, they went away. It didn't get chilly until Sat am, which is when we left.
I did miss my puppies. I was worried about them but they're fine. Very glad to be home and are now asleep on my bed. I'm tempted to join them. That 8 hr drive yesterday wiped me out. I haven't looked at the pictures on my camera yet. I'll post a few when I get a chance to check them. My friend that rode down and back with me took most of the pictures. She took over 700 and she had a much better camera than mine.
I never woke up in time for the sunrise but sunset everynight was absolutely beautiful every night. We never left for dinner until after sunset.
Seagulls, Dolphins, Pelicans, jelly fish, and some strange and some wonderful people. It was an fantastic week, for sure
I had to go to the Dr today. We had to get forms filled out so our medical benefits would cost us less. Its the first time in forever that I went with nothing wrong and not needing a presecription. So, just in case it would go to waste I got a flu shot. Damn if that thing isn't the consistency of tar. She kept saying it would "sting". Sting is not the word. Just plain hurt is what it did. Stings only last a second. this lasted the entire time it took her to get it all into my arm. Just sayin'
I love Tuesday nights. I get to watch "Castle". Its been on a few years and I LOVE it. Since I have a DVR I can record anything that comes on at 10 and watch it the next night. Hence "Castle" and "Hawaii Five-0" on Tuesday.
I want to see "Real Steel". Has anyone seen it? Is it good or a waste. I can not wait for my vacation!!!!!!
Just wonderful..I took my car to the dealer today to get its "physical" before I take it on a trip later. All the brake pads are bad. Its going to cost me $500+ to get them fixed. I have a question for anyone that may know the answer. How the hell long are brakes supposed to last? The car is 3 years old. Isn't that a little short for brakes? How long should these last? At 500.00 I'd say it had better be a good long time. Crap. I'm glad that I took it though. I'd have hated to find out the were bad by running into something on our trip. It's supposed be ready soon so here I sit waiting for the call.
Al Davis has died. RIP Al but goodness you were difficult these last years.
Vols play Georgia tonight. This is a huge game for us and our relatively new team. I'm loving our new head coach and his mother. I really do hope he can lead the team to a decent football season..............7pm ESPN2
Today started out so wonderfully. I spoke to my son and his wife first thing. They called me before they went to work (different time zone). It was such a joy talking to them. They were checking on my health and wanting a few more details. But hearing their voices first thing at work was stupendous!!!
I had a hard time getting up for work this morning. Of course nothing new but a little more difficult today for some reason. I'm thinking it may be just plain relief after the past few weeks. Foour or five days of sleep would be nice.
Tonight is one of my faborite TV nights. I actually watch regular shows tonight, not DVR recordings. I'm a die hard "Survivor" fan. So I watch it live every Wednesday. Its also "Criminal Minds" night. I've always loved this show (watching now). Although, I must say, if you watched this last week it was so gory it made "Dexter" look like Cinderella. They really don't need that much gore on Criminal Minds.
I got to sleep at 10 so the good thing about the DVR is that on the nights that there isn't much I like on TV I get to watch the 10 pm shows or anything else that was on the same time another show I like is on.
Good news, even though I had a precancerous polyp when they did the colonoscopy, the scans are clear. I have to go back for another mammogram in 6 months because they want to make sure what they found was a lymph node. I guess they want to keep an eye on it. I also have to keep the port in me for another year. “Just in case” to quote the Dr.So I can go on vacation in a few weeks and enjoy it…..whoooooo
