A gray and extremely snowy day...

...and we have a funeral to go to. I am finding this weather SO depressing. It has been snowing so long in such large amounts and been so cold this winter. (What was that I heard about global warming?) We are only now starting to have fleeting afternoons of close to 35 or 40°. It's been a long, long winter.
I filed online for my social security yesterday. I had thought, after reading my last statement, that I would be getting $670 a month. I must have looked at the age 65 amount. I'm actually getting $536 according to the site. Should get my first check on June 20th. I'm somewhat disappointed. I was so hoping to contribute a bit more than that to the household budget. But it is what it is. I must just be thankful for what I will be getting. It's just sometimes I feel bad that I'm not bringing in any money. We are trying to position ourselves for Arn to be able to retire, and there are things that need done to this house before he can do that. Anyway, I am kind of bummed.
Haven't been to the gym yet. I need to go find a pair of sweat pants of some sort. They don't allow jeans there. Geez, mine or so baggy they are ready to fall off. They would be fine. I HATE exercise clothes!
Weight-wise I am still battling this plateau of 185-188. I know I'm not going to move from there till I get off my butt and start exercising. Looking forward to getting on the treadmill at the gym. I am such an anxious weirdo that I've been stressing ever sense Thursday night when we joined the gym about not being able to know how to use the stupid things. I sometimes think I am mentally ill!
Oh well, time to fix breakfast. The old gray bear here is hungry.
