We were supposed to have a rain/snow mix here Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. It did snow, I guess, from what the meteorologist said on the weather but the snow did not accumulate. It was wet Wednesday morning and only 32-33 degrees so things could have been better but there was no visible ice. We are entering a cold spell. Winter is not over.
Tuesday was the best day weather-wise we are to have for quite a while so I got out to all my shopping and errands done them. I picked up the mail, went to my Dish provider and paid my bill, got the newspapers for the last week, went to Casey's to buy a lottery ticket as my hubby wanted me to, went to Shoe Stop looking for some new tennis shoes but I'm too picky, went to the bank to report that I didn't get my checks and made my deposit, went to one of my favorite stores - Dish on The Square - that was closed for the day for some reason, went to Big Lots, to my husband's work to tell him our security surveillance system was needing some attention, went to the power co-op to pay the power bill, went to TSC, went to Kohl's, and then IGA, Kroger, Aldi, and Wal-mart to get groceries. I came home and my son was off for the day so he helped me put everything away and fix supper. I came home and did my chores. Baby is always waiting now for me to feed her.
I awakened at 4 on Wednesday and could not go back to sleep. I really wanted more sleep. I never want to get up any more like I use to. I used to spring out of bed. The bed feels wonderful and I want to stay. I don't feel well. My MRSA is back and for anyone who has ever had it chronically it's a big bummer. I always get it in the winter at some time. My back is trying to act up and my arthritis is bothering me. I'm achy and have malaise and fatigue. I'm tired. I have G.I. problems. A mild intermittent fever and feel chilly sometimes which is not typical for me. I have to push myself to do everything. My exercise and diet need improvement. I'm not enjoying my exercise and I really can't think of anything healthy I want to eat. I have tons of things I need to do and don't want to do them. Other than that I'm fine. LOL. I just need a good beating and I'm sure someone will give me one. LOL. I did manage to get my steps in and my chores done. It feels good to feed Baby. She is old and it's cold outside and she lays on her side in the yard. It makes me feel good to know I can afford to give her extra food.
Today I slept better and felt a little better. I put off eating and tried to eat healthier food. I made some cooked cabbage with turkey sausage in it and some fresh pineapple. Baby got to our spot really fast today to get her food. She is not messing around. It's really cold out there now and hope she is warm enough. My son got to work days today for a change - a rarity. He also went to taekwondo. Hubby and I went for a walk after he got off work. It was cold but nice to get outside.
