Health Fair at the Senior Center

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

I fasted this morning, drinking only black coffee because I read about the Health Fair in the newspaper and marked it on my calendar. They said there would be blood tests and blood pressure's taken plus a lot of information. Well, my blood pressure is 140/72, I guess that is borderline so it's all right. Then I went to do the blood test and they ran out of test strips. It was for diabetes. Well, I guess they must have forgot to bring the test strips because only about 10 people got their blood tested. I did get a lot of other information that I brought home to read at my leisure. I thought about staying for lunch ($3 donation) but changed my mind when I looked in the dining room. There was too many old people for me!! I was the youngest one there and didn't feel comfortable. I got a package of Poor Boy sandwich rolls off the free table and went to KMart. Mary wanted a pink water bottle that is big enough to get ice cubes inside and they were on sale there. I bought myself an little Black and Decker rice cooker and made long grain brown rice for dinner. It was delicious and cooked to perfection!!

We had a lightning/thunderstorm blow through here between 4 ans 5 but luckily, we didn't get the half inch hail. Just a lot of rain in a short time. I covered up my windshield in my car just in case!!

I hope we have better weather tomorrow.

I spent the whole day down in the social room. Mary and I went to the manger and told her what happened yesterday with Judy and the dog and she said she will check it all out, according to the rules. She said she can't do anything about tenents argueing with each other. Oh well................Judy went into talk to her after we did then plunked herself down at our table and proceeded to pick an argument with me but she didn't get very far. I told her to never ask me for a ride again because I will never take her anywhere. She said she doesn't care. I think she thinks that Myrna will take her to the store but she has decided not to take her anymore because she never offers her anything for gas or says 'thank you'. I came home to have breakfast and Judy stayed there and yelled at the others for a while. Mary had her tape recorder on. I went back and Myrna had made yeast rolls and had real butter. Yum................So we all stayed the rest of the day and other's came to join us. Anyway it was a good day after all. We all wanted to go home but Suzanne said to wait until her son and his wife got there so we could see his hair dye job. LOL His hair is orange!! I told him to just shave his head but he really doesn't want to so he is going to have his wife dye it black but it might fall out if he does it too soon. It is too funny!!

I'm glad this day is about over because people here are going whacko, arguing and complaining and I got involved in another confrontation this afternoon when I was sitting down in the social room minding my own business. Mary and Judi got into and argument because Judi brought Debby's dog into the room where animals are not allowed but Judi being Judi, likes to push people's buttons to see how far she can go. Well she went too far this time. I got up and left because I didn't want to hear anymore. I got into the elevator and as the door was shutting she came barging in with the puppy yelling at me because I didn't hold the door for her. Well, I didn' t know she was getting in. Then she yelled at me because none of us would speak up in her defense. I just told her that I never get involved in other people's arguments. Well, she kept yelling at me and I ignored her. So after she got off I went back downstairs to tell the ladies what she was saying and found out she yelled at the others who didn't speak up. So I came home and wrote it all down, then took the paper downstairs and had the ladies sign it and I'm going to speak to our new manager in the morning. I have had enough of her. Judi flies off the handle with too many people here. I have been nothing but good to her--I have given her a lot of stuff that she needed plus giving her rides to the doctor and Walmart because her car is broken down. So she's on her own from now on.

Other than the above, I had a good day.

    sorry, judi should use her head and think before flying off the handle..she sounds like a person who no matter what you do isn't enough. well leave her to herself and let her see how much you have done for her.
sorry again about the rough day you had...

What Happened to Spring?

Saturday, May 22, 2010

This has been the wierdest spring I can remember. Summer will be here in a month. When I got up this morning it was bright and the sun came out but this afternoon the rain came back. I am watching movies this afternoon. Maybe tomorrow I can plant the tomatoes in the large pots. I don't want to do it on the balcony in the rain.

I am tracking my food and drinking my water!!

It's Actually Friday

Saturday, May 22, 2010

All day long I have thought it was Thursday. I finally figured it out when I was reading some posts. I guess it was all the stormy days that got me all mixed up. Plus I haven't been spending as much time sitting around in the social room the last few days. It didn't even dawn on me that the beauty shop was open today when I walked by. I hope I'm not losing my mind!! LOL
