On day 52 alcohol free this morning.
Meeting some friends for lunch today...going to a place I have never been to called Grub. I always enjoy their company....my lunch bunch from sandras the health food cafe that we met at a few years ago.
I stretched this morning and pulled a muscle for crying out loud!!!!!!
Geesh my body is falling apart.
arthritis in my neck and back and hips I believe....
oh well I guess I will just age gracefully.
Does complaining mean gracefully????
I got up early to make homemade chilli to put in the crock pot for dinner tonight.
Unusual for me....
We are having company, my new friend from NAMI and her hubby are coming over at 6pm.
I really like her and this is the first person who is bipolar that I have become friends with in real life that is...
She is a nurse also. Her hubby is disabled due to severe peripheral neuropathy in his feet....they are on fire most of the time..poor guy.
I made a small fruit salad last night: chopped up a pear, an apple, mixed in key lime yogurt, and a few raspberries on top.
I will serve the chilli with shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream and an avocado. I bought half a cherry pie and cut that into 4 pieces already. I like to have the majority of the food prep done early if I can because I never know for sure how long my day will last at work.
My new pants came in and I washed them last night and they came out wrinkled....grrr!
I will have to iron them this weekend.
My cousin is coming next week to visit.
Raju is a flight attendant and loves the free travel!
He is due in friday afternoon and we are going to go to the "fright trail" halloween attraction. We have never been to this one, it sounds scary!
He will spend the night and Saturday. Hopefully (if the weather permits), we will go kayaking at lake Martin swamp.
It is beautiful there and only 30 minutes from our home.
My best friend's hubby got laid off from his job in the oil field...I feel really badly for them. Now they are both looking for work...he is delusional thinking that he will become a Realtor in this bad market. She has been a stay at home mom for the past 10 years(except for a one year teaching job at the private school her 9 year old daughter attends. She interviewed for 2 different medical coding jobs yesterday even though she does not have any experience. I told her the ICD codes have all changed this year so maybe that doesn't matter. We will see.
I had lunch at my house with my friend Susan yesterday, we ate left over beef lentil stew.
It was good.
She did not talk about looking for work at all.
She only talked about her college age daughter needing a very expensive jaw surgery that is not covered by insurance...ouch!
Her hubby is a college professor teaching trumpet and best friends with my hubby.
She should be very concerned about her being out of work....they are struggling, Paul says she needs to start working now!
That is 4 of my friends looking for work.
I am very thankful for my job!
My hair is high lighted now and looks strawberry blondish. I have been curling it and it looks better now.
It was black just 5 weeks ago.
I have been shocking my elderly clients.
They all like it.
Hubby likes it too.
I saw in the news today about supplements have caused multiple deaths. Jeff said to me this morning that he may stop taking them...
I will keep taking mine. I feel that I need them.
Well I had better get going
Have a good day!
