It's been a good week---enjoyed President Christensen's class, had a delightful Bishopric party at our house, had a couple sessions at the gym, went to a new audiologist (my hearing loss is worse than I thought and I'm getting new hearing aids), volunteered in the second grade, loved getting my hair done, had a very wonderful time at our Stake Relief Society Birthday Party with Janice Kapp Perry, and enjoyed a little time with hubby. Now if I can sleep tonight the week if a winner.

Weekends roll around too fast

The week was over before I was ready. I think that is a good thing. During the week I tended my granddaughter three times. signed up at the gym, had lunch with friends, got my hair done, paid bills, was told I needed new hearing aids, enjoyed a FHE with our Ward--sang favorite hymns, had a session with a trainer at the gym, bought new exercise shoes that are comfortable, had my son and family for breakfast, and began a new book. That isn't too bad for someone that was complaining earlier this week. Tonight I'm going to a dinner presented by the Elders Quorum as a reward for having a higher percentage of sisters completing Visiting Teaching in December. Next week I go to my endocrinologist, go to a new audiologist, and go out to dinner three times. Spring is COMING!!!

Lately I've been feeling almost rebellious. I don't want to do things I've always loved to do, I don't want to work on projects, I don't feel like reading, I'm always craving chocolate. So I realized there must be something missing that I'm looking for. I don't know what it is yet, but I guess I'll be more observant and try to figure out why I'm not in the game. Sometimes I guess I just need to listen--to me, to others, to the scriptures, and to.......
I also know that I need to get back on some kind of schedule instead of just going with the wind and doing whatever. Hmmmm.... Meditation here I come......

February 11th

Today would have been Grandma Mills' 102nd birthday. She has been gone two years now and its hard to believe.
I am now signed up at 24Hour Fitness and ready to get in better shape. Except I have had so much pain in my right foot--tomorrow I go to the podiatrist to find out what activity level I can be at. The joys of getting old!!!
I have started a new quilt and have a couple others I want to do. It sure brings a new interest to my life! I am also excited to have my two daughters coming this weekend. I'm so glad to have fun things keep my life exciting! I hope you have an exciting weekend too!

Fish Races

I did get some pictures on of the races, but I didn't get the ones I planned on. Oh, well. You can see people gathered around the fish tank where they caught a fish for their race ande gave him a name. I also ended up wiith a picture of our sweet Bishop's wife, Kathy. You can see the rain gutter fish race path. Also one picture showing them trying to get their fish down to the other end. It turned out to be one of the best activities we've had.

TGIF--Made it through to another weekend! We've had a busy week and I feel spoiled. We are enjoying a new TV and today got some new chairs too. Our old chairs are just that---OLD. They are falling apart and so uncomfortable to sit in. They have had good use for at least 20 years. So now it is time to start over with some comfort. I like being spoiled. At least once in awhile. I'm also relieved to receive my health insurance card and resolve some other issues. Now I hope to take steps to improve my health again. Have a great weekend!!!

I have been fighting a cold for a week, and so far I've been winning. However, I'm still looking for all of my get-up-and-go. I haven't had much energy and find myself avoiding sewing, reading, cleaning, and anything truly productive. Maybe its the mid=winter blahs. Or cabin fever. Or laziness. I thought February would help chase that all away, but here I am still spinning my wheels. One good thing today---I've been craving lentil chili and actually made a pot for dinner. It was good to chop onions and measure spices. I even made cornbread muffins from scratch. Maybe there is hope for getting past this no energy phase. Ah! Springtime.....

The past few weeks our microwave has been making weird sounds and so we finally bought a new one. It is so pretty sitting there on the counter. I hope it works as well as the old one did. We also have a new TV. Hubby has been wanting one for a long time. I wanted new chairs, but I think we will wait a while. There's only so much new stuff I can handle. I also have new health insurance. When I went for my medication, they couldn't find it so the pharmacist called my insurance company. I found out the agent had written down the wrong account number. But now I'm in the system and ready to move forward. Now I need to clean my house so it looks like new!

Wahoo! It's February!

Made it through the long month of JANUARY, and I'm ready for February. Saturday we enjoyed going to lunch with our two daughters and a grandson. It's our first lunch get-together since last June. We enjoyed the Hawaiian flavor of Mo'Bettah Steaks and their Hawaiian platters with teriyaki or kulua pork etc. The best part is the Shave Ice. They have all the flavors we loved in Hawaii and traveled 45 minutes to get. The Ice is HUGE and good even in the winter. We also enjoyed games and LAUGHING. Delightful way to end the month.
Today I am finally insured on health. I have Medicare, but needed the Prescription plan. I will also be starting a gym membership this month and get back on track there. Today I put up the Valentine decorations and love the reds and pinks. THis afternoon I'm going to the class with President Christensen. Love it!!! Tonight we will go hear the recital where our grandson plays the guitar. Looks like a good start to a nice, short month!
