Today is a much better day for me. I awoke this morning not feeling dizzy. But I did get 11 hours of sleep. I guess I needed it.
I cancelled all my activities again for today and rescheduled my hair appointment for tomorrow and my appointment for curves for Friday. I decided not to play scrabble.
I did a lot of planning for the luncheon on Sunday by phone and our event appeared in the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle in a two column article by a person from Scottsdale Arizona. I wonder if she was Maggie Anton's PR person. Anyway, I got another call today from someone who wanted to come. I am now up to 54 people. I will finalize the count on Thursday, when our caterer buys the food. I was hoping for 50 people and now it is exceed my expectations.
Today I ate lightly and since I haven't done any exercise in two days I am not unhappy about that.
I did drink my water though, because I felt a little dehydrated. Tomorrow will be another light activity day, just a hair appointment at 11:45 a.m.

All my plans went down the tube today, when I woke up and found I had picked up a virus or flu bug. I was so dizzy I couldn't walk or stand without falling. So I cancelled everything and went back to bed and slept most of the day.
I did eat but very little, haven't drunk my water, which I will try to do now and now I am going back to bed.
Did very little correspondence on Sparkpeople. Just what was necessary.
Good night everyone. I have cancelled everything for tomorrow too, so I will sleep in and get my strength back.

This morning I woke up very early at about 5:00 a.m. and couldn't sleep any longer. I am not a person that can lay in bed, so I got up and logged in on my computer and read a little.
I decided to go to shabbat services since one of our members children hosted the luncheon in honor of a special celebration. They served a beautiful luncheon, lasagna and fresh fruit and beautiful desserts, which I passed on. The choir sang and so I sat with the members of the choir for lunch.
I came home and found out as I entered our underground parking garage, that the electricity for the area, including our condo complex had be shut off and it was very dark in the parking area and hallways. All we had were the emergency lights. I had to walk up two flights of stairs since the elevator was out, and find my keys to the door in the dark. I was so glad to finally make it to my condo where I had plenty of window light. So I read for most of the afternoon until the electricity was restored. Total hours out about 2 1/2 hours.
Our friends J and D drove to our house and we drove to the Sunset Theatre which is a regional theatre. We have season tickets and the musical production they put on was "Midlife Crisis" which was a great production. The eight actors were professional and well suited to their parts. We really enjoyed it. The other two couples and we four then went to Applebys in Menomonee Falls for dinner. I had the 550 calorie dinner, which I had last week. Shrimp Diablo which again I had to send back to warm up, because it came cold. But once warmed was delicious.
I just called my cousin B in New Mexico to wish him a very happy 80th birthday. He told me his son D is in the hospital with pneumonia and it was touch and go for a while, but now is recovering, but still in ICU and on watch 24/7. How fragile life is.............
tomorrow I am going to the synagogue to polish silverware for our luncheon on February 7, 2010. We have about 5 or 6 women so it shouldn't take us very long.
I am very upset about a fundraiser that I signed up for tomorrow evening. Supposedly it was by reservation only, a limited amount of people for a special showing of the the Dead Sea Scrolls which is on exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum. We were supposed to have during this 2 hour time period, a private tour, a presentation by the Museum President and CEO, lecture by Jewish educators and hors d' oeuvres. In tonites Milwaukee major newspaper there was an article stating that this fundraiser's expectation was 50-100 people and now its up to 500 people. If this is the case, no one will get close to the exhibit and where is everyone going to park? I am deeply disappointed and am considering not attending and consider this a donation. But now I want to attend the exhibit and it will cost me another $25.00 to see the Dead Sea Scrolls. Ugh.........
