Woke up at 15 minutes to 4 am, having alept almost five hours before the wake up! Laid quietly and read until Mom got up at 5:30 am. Then I got my exercises done and got my breakfast together. My wonderful Step Dad got up early (7am) so I could use the shower in his room. Then it was icing my hip and then finally off to the bridge club. I didn't get there as early as I would have liked. We made a stop for gas and fortunately, Mom let me pay for it all.
I was in the process of setting up the tables for the game when the early bird came in -a lady who likes to come an hour early so she can put tea on for the game. She helped me set up te rest of the game. It was a huge game -28 tables- but will be nothing compared to the Christmas Luncheon next week will be a zoo. The game ran smoothly, had a few calls, but nothing I couldn't handle. The hip held up and didn't squawk too much. I got one chore done that I wanted to. Had a lot of people welcoming me back, and people were quick to help me out, as in passing the game boards out.
The president announced at lunch time there will be an exterminator coming in next Tuesday for the mouse problem, so to make sure all lunch material was taken home. He also announced the Annual General meeting coming up. I will have to go to the club every single day this week, very inconvenient for my poor Mom driving :(( Got to hope nothing more nasty happens with the weather as she is a nervous enough driver as it is.
Relaxing and Sparking this evening. Tomorrow will be my first phsyio evaulation since the surgery. So early, I have to be there by 8:40 am, the height of rush hour when its still dark, so Mom will have a tough time. She wants to give up driving, but refuses to let my Step Dad drive until his eye is healed and the other one fixed.
Have a good evening and sleep all!

Hi all! Enjoyed my evening yesterday, everything ran smoothly and people welcomed me back, saying it was good to see me looking so well. They also mentioned they notice how things are when I am not around.. I did over eat a bit, was upset they ran out of cranberry sauce by the time I got to go up, so put a small amount of watery looking gravy on instead -I really wasn't that impressed with the food, except the pomegranite spinach salad was wonderful and I had a good serving of it. The vegeatbles were way over cooked and faded (the standard carrots, beans so I did not eat them and had mashed potatoes instead as well as a generous helping of the cauliflower broccoli salad. I had a small amount of coleslaw and wasn't impressed with it. The buns were not home made as far as I could tell, but at least they had wheat available and not just white.
My reward was a sore spot I nursed in my hip all day. I can do all my physiotherapy exercises with no discomfort what so ever. It hurts the most when I walk. I hope its gone for tomorrow, because I will do a lot of walking setting up the game. So today was mostly a lie and sit around day, resting..
Hope you have a good sleep, and a Marvelous Monday!

I enjoyed my trip to Costco today. Was crazy busy, but fortunately I got a cart to look around with. My brother, his daughter and my Mom all had lunch while I got to take my time looking around. Lots of specials, but nothing I could live without. Saw two different lights claiming to replace sunlight and help with seasonal blues. One was blue and the other was a Verilux, like a lamp I already have, but its not claiming to be a sunlight replacer.
I got a number of nice samples, including a jalapeņo hummus and a pepper jelly I really liked.
I had a nice long, hot shower, relaxed, watched a good BBC movie called Billy Elliot, about a boy who prefered to dance rather than box, much to his father and brother's opposition.
Looking forward to the turkey supper and bridge game tonight.
Have a good evening and sleeps all!

Went and got my month end done no problems, the went home and got the reports and some other things ready and discovered I kept having to get up between my business computer and my old computer and getting things. I also had to walk outside and go snail mail a report the treasurer forgot to send. I felt sore after all these up and downs. I spent from 11 am until 3 pm on my outing. Tomorrow, with the Christmas party, it will be even longer, as I will attend the social and dinner, then play bridge and help direct.
I picked my outfit out and hope it will fit. I asked my caretaker if my mail box could be moved from the absolute bottom row to the top, and she said there was no room. Who ever heard of the 100 main floor numbers being on the bottom?? It was like that in my old apartment too. I can't bend that low, so I guess I will be stuck asking who ever is around to check my mail for me.
I hope I can sleep tonight, need all the rest I can get, but am having trouble getting comfy.
Hope you all have good sleeps, and a fabulous weekend!
