Get out of there! – I brought a plant and some cat grass and put the bag on the counter. I took my coat off and turned around and Morgan already had her head in the bag munching. That cat has the nose of a dog.
A happy start – Sometimes a perky person can jump-start your smiles. On a recent Starbucks trip (remember this is all pre-coffee for me) I was in back of a guy who was friendly. Not the annoying friendly but the funny friendly. He made me laugh and that carried me through the morning. I must remember to do that for someone else.
Donating is work – Readers know that over the past two weeks we have done a major clean out of stuff. I refer to it as the first step to the nursing home. (No, not now. We have another 20 years before we move there!) I was surprised at how much work donating is. Some places that this and some places take that. Our local library stopped taking books so we searched around for alternatives. Many places only wanted books written within the last 5 years. Seriously? There are tons of good books written prior to that. One place told us nothing trashy. I don’t know what that means. It’s hard to read a book these days without some sex in it. I didn’t own any of the “Shades of Gray” trilogy so I gave them the box and let them toss.
Growing like weeds – Also on the docket this week was my annual medical check-up. As I put on the gown (I asked for a Gucci one but think it was from Wal-Mart) I noticed a patch of leg hair down the front of my left leg. From the length of it, I suspect I missed that spot at least twice. The good news is that I’m not a hairy person and I no longer care what people think.
Busy, busy – This past week has been hectic. I had to “kick it up a notch.” There were times when I felt I was on drugs, flying around on a broomstick. I remembered that this is how I did it when I worked. The side effect was that my blood pressure (which is always low) dropped so I was flying with a little wooziness going on.
So how was your week?
