Winter's coming

When I woke up this morning, I felt as if I were sleeping outside all night. I didn't even want to get out of bed to check the thermastat, but I did anyway and found I was sleeping in 70 degree weather inside the condo. I like to be all snuggly and warm so I braved the cold and turned up the heat 5 degrees, hmmmmm that felt good.

Idecided to go out and do a little shopping so I put on my winter coat, to brave the cold, it was now 45 and windy, by the time I had gotten to my destination, it was warming up outside and off came the coat. I hate when it keeps changing like that. Here in Atlanta, you have to dress in layers cause you never know what the temp. is going to be.

I haven't been excercising very much, so I decided to join a gym and will be working out two or three times a week. I also hate to exercise, but if Marcel and his sister Rita are going to live to be 100 I guess I'll try that too to keep them company. We will all look like beef jerky then, who cares?

Tired of the valance

I can't believe all of you are tired of looking at the valance, I'm not.

I guess it has been a while since I've blogged, but my life isn't too exciting. I do the same old things day after day.

Back in July I was called to Detroit by my nephews that told me something was wrong with my sister, they didn't know what it was, and I was her next closest relative and could I please help them. Well I spoke to her on the phone and knew exactly by the tone of her voice that she was depressed. I told her I would come to Detroit to get her because she wouldn't get on a plane, (no money). I drove to Detroit stayed for 3 weeks and got tired of being there and wanted to come home. The doctor started her on anti depressants, and during an examination found a lump in her R Breast, they did a lumpectomy and found it was malignant and advised her to have the breast removed. I said I wanted to take her to Atlanta to have that all done to which she agreed. We drove back to ATL had her health taken care of, she stayed with me for 5 weeks and then we were off back driving to Detroit. Need I say the drive was long? Well after I delivered her back home, I decided to go to Chicago to see my granddaughter and hubby and babies. Stayed with her for a couple of days then went on to Wisconsin to stay with Dawn and Mark. Her daughter Kelly and Husband Paul purchased a house that went into foreclosure and asked me to help them get it livable, to which I said OK.

While taping woodwork to get ready for painting, I fell from the counter of the bathroom sink and injured my tailbone, that was the end of my working there. I am now under the care of a chiropractor (it's been 5 week) and she said my whole back was sprained. It is still sore when sitting, but getting better. My kids are saying stay off the ladders, but that isn't me. I love to do things like that and the ladder is not my enemy. Isn't this boring?
