I'm not as down today as I was yesterday, but I'm still feeling some residual sadness. I'm still trying to stay busy. I'm planning my week out and realized that there's quite a few things on my calendar already, which is good. I know that if I stay busy, I won't concentrate so much on not having my daughters here with me.
It's a rainy day today, which never seems to help my spirits. But I did make it to church this morning and stopped at the grocery store on the way home. The church is having a formal tea fundraiser this coming Saturday. Another lady and I are in charge of the cookies that are served for dessert. So, I've got one batch already made and cooling off.
My daughter and son-in-law had gotten me a flat screen tv for Christmas and hooked it up. But they weren't able to hook the DVD player up to it for lack of some kind of wiring. We ran out of time, so we weren't able to go back to the store and get what was needed.
I don't watch too many movies, but I do throw in my walking and exercising DVDs in, especially in the winter when I can't go walking outside. So, a friend of mine is supposed to be on the way over with something that will work. I'm hoping so. The holidays are rough enough on the exercise and diet routine as it is.
Actually, I've always found that January and February are always hard for me to keep on track. I don't know if it's the "mammal hibernation" thing or what. So, needless to say, I want my DVD hooked up!
What really would be nice would be if Santa could bring me a job where I'm active. But, I guess I'm actually over the age limit that he brings gifts to. But, I'm still hopeful something will turn up for me in the new year. I'm counting on the fact that companies usually wait until the new year at this point in time to hire people. I'd be in Heaven if I could at least get something part time.
