Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Friday, February 14, 2020

Happy Valentine's Day!! The sun is shining where I am. It has been a week of gloom with rain, cold, and clouds. So Today I really welcome the sun and the fact it is Valentine's Day just makes it better!

Diet wise, I am still hovering. My weight is just stubborn. It will not give in. My body is like that in winter. The cold just makes my body go on survival mode.

I finished my taxes and mailed them in. I owed the state but get a few bucks back from the Fed. I also applied for a reduction in property taxes. Not sure I will get any deduction but I applied just in case.

The crazy doom that erupted on Friday Dec 13th is now (finally) calming. Not sure if I mentioned it but:

I had a water leak via my water softener which caused me to have a water bill equal to one years usage. I chose not to replace my water softener for now. (that saved me $1600)

I had to have my car battery replaced & $162). I had it done last year but that one died.

My dentist has to send me to specialist for my pockets to be cleaned. (not just $$$ but pockets in my gums. LOL) I chose to do that in March.

I fell on ice in my driveway I did not know was there.

LOL. No it is not my knee! it my elbow. But It healed within a week.

So as you can see my month of woos I have hoping are now gone. Since I am an optimist, I tend to not wallow in fear, doubt, or worry. Instead I fight, find new answers and look forward.

I hope your life beams with joy, hope, love and have a Happy Valentine's Day!

    Wow! You have had alot of things happen to you! I am impressed that you still maintain a positive attitude. It will get you far. Your elbow looks bad! I hope it heals soon. I put rock salt down on my porch and in my driveway. It has helped as I took a fall a couple of years ago. I didn't want to have that happen to me again!

    Have had some extra dental work done for the past few years. Nice to take care of your teeth.
    I feel a few months back, and really hurt my ankle and leg. Be as careful as you can.
    Happy Valentine's Day
