A Good Feeling Day

Sunday, October 24, 2010

A group of us from church went down to a soup kitchen today after mass and worked for about 4 hours. The time went by so fast! It left me with a good feeling and grateful for what I have. I will definitely do this again!

    Good job! More of us should volunteer and pay forward. Who knows, some day we may be the ones who need help.

Doing Better

Saturday, October 23, 2010

I got a day's worth of antibiotics in my system and a good night's sleep. So I'm taking advantage of feeling better. I completed my exercises, changed and washed my sheets, and did the dishes all before 8:30. I will go for my walk shortly. Hopefully, I can hang on to this motivation all day. I didn't like the scale yesterday and am determined to like it again next week.

Unexpected Happenings

Friday, October 22, 2010

Today brought some unexpected twists and turns. At lunch, I realized that my backache was partly the result of a bladder infection. I tried to reach my doctor, but was put on hold every time I tried all afternoon. (That was an expected happening.) So, I asked my co-workers where the nearest walk-in clinic was. Someone finally directed me to one about a mile away. I was in and out within a half hour. I think that was the fastest I was ever in and out of a doctor's office. I stopped at the nearest location of the drug store chain that I usually get my prescriptions at. I got all the way home to find out that I was shorted two pills. I really don't want to go all the way back there today - they will let me pick them up on Monday. I also found out from my daughter that she goes to the clinic right next to my work. It got me thinking: How many people really pay attention to what is around them when they go to and from work?

    I'm glad you were able to get help for your problem without too much difficulty. Those walk-in clinics are a good thing for a lot of people.

The Terrible Weather

Thursday, October 21, 2010

It's cold outside - only about 50 with a wind and occasional showers. I'm not sure I'm going to handle the Michigan winter after being away for almost 14 years. What was I thinking???? I know - I know! My family (except for my oldest daughter) is here. I just stress about not being active enough - I do like to take long walks and I don't have the means to get a treadmill. Gotta put my thinking cap on!

    How close are you to an indoor mall? That's a great, warm place for a walk, especialy when it's nasty outside.

Time: too much or too little

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

When I wasn't working, I looked for stuff to do to keep me occupied. Now that I have a temporary job, I look for ways to fit it all in. When the job ends, I will again be looking for things to fill my day. Is there no in-between?
