Usually when I am called and asked to work, I can't say no. Today at 6am, I was called but I said no. I think it even shocked them. I have started a cold and where I have a test on my esphagus in 2 weeks, I need to try to get rid of it. I don't feel bad, but the voice is deep so I want to get it under control before it does get worse.
Thanksgiving day will be a quiet one around here. Hubby has invited some guy friends over that have no family around here. So turkey and the works will be served. Not thrilled about being in the house with all men, but happy to help make their giving day a special one.
Tara, I have added a coffee mug to the basket and plan to give to the minister of our church as a Merry Christ day. We did 14 boxes for Thanksgiving and they were delived yesterday to families of need. Turkey, veggies, soups, cereal, milk and other things were put in. Makes you feel good to know you are helping others.
My son-in-law is doing Movember. That is growing a mustache to raise money for mens health and prostate cancer. I sent in my donation today. Hubby is growing one too, to support him. His father has cancer of the prostate so it is a close subject for him. So far he has raised $500 for a good cause.
I have struggles like everyone else and this year money is tight but that is when you have to stop and think of all the people that are worst off then you. I am thankful for my family and great friends like everyone on SP. I have a roof over my head, a car to drive, and health. I miss my mother this time of year even after she has been gone for 38 years. Dad has been gone over 20 years. Mom died just after Christmas and we buried her on New Years Eve, so I always think of her at this time of year.
It doesn't look like I will meet my goal of 170 by my birthday but I am thankful I have lost what I have. 214 was not a good thing and 178.5 if alot better. Slow and study wins the race.
Well I better get moving and do my threadmill and then tonight they are going to have Zumba, so will make it to that to help feel better for tomorrow. I feel good about having to put down my feelings and thoughts on paper. So bear with me when I get in these moods.
