We made am attempt to go the meat market last week but people were fighting over meat so we have no plan to return until this is over. Things here have gotten a lot worse.

My husband is not a meatless kind of guy. I often give him part of mine. I have hypoglycemia so vegetarian doesn't work for me. I tried it when I was younger.

We have kept busy working on projects. We are fairly isolated anyway. Have no family here.

Fascinating. We've been totally isolated for the last nine days. You know, for the past 10 years, there's been talk about us becoming a "paperless" society. I don't think this is what they had in mind! LOL! LOL! LOL! But isn't it hysterical that PAPER is what has disappeared?

I don't have a freezer unit, so there's only so much fridge-freezer space. It is Lent, and I've instituted THREE days of meatless meals. Fortunately, I bought (and froze) plenty of eggs -- and it is AH-mazing what eggs can do! I stocked up on food for us all... enough for... 2-3 months, I'm guessing. I've got lots of canned veggies. So what are we all longing for? Not meat! -- Fresh veggies! -- because that is what I always fixed before!

We've got a household of 3 healthy adults and one pet parrot.
We've reliably got food, water, power, TP, communications, a warm home (a couple years back, after the flood, we had none of those for 6 weeks), entertainment, and each other. There's no reason to leave the house for anything for a long time yet -- except maybe psychologically. Well, I mean of course -- we do go outside. So far, it has been like a weird vacation. I've finished 2 books nd a magazine. I think I will start deep-cleaning house just for a change of pace!

Yikes.

Our state went on lock down today. Hubby will not be working for a while. The bank is only open with the drive through now and will require an I.D. Very little will be open. Gas stations, grocery stores, hardware stores, banks, medical facilities, fire houses, police stations.

I went to get some groceries today and there wasn't much. No toilet paper, paper towels, tissues. Hardly any paper products, cleaning products, very little meat, or peanut butter, or beans. They had plenty of produce, plenty of bread, plenty of snacks. Very little on the shelves. The meat market only allows 2 packages of meat and they hardly have any. No chicken, no pork chops, no hamburger. I got pork steak and beef steak. Some fish.

My doctor wants me to fill out forms to be tested for covid 19 but I don't know if I will.

Sounds great. Good job!

Every day there are more positive covid 19 cases in the area - 25 to 70 miles from me. We still have no testing here.

Rainy here today. Storms on the way!

People here are not usually the shoving type but everything has pretty much been picked over anyway so not much to fight over.

Yes, cilantro. I should have remembered that because it was in the detox soup that I made. That and parsley.

They have pretty much shut down everything in the state except the stores. Any restaurants are take out or delivery only and they only allow 5 people inside at a time to do pickups. So far they haven't started any time for seniors only at the stores and hoarders are shoving them aside to get items that the seniors and disabled are after. I keep checking on the medical.

Do you mean cilantro?

They are telling people here to cancel unnecessary appointments of all kinds.

No one is voting today here. The neighbors goats are running loose. The tree trimmers are working outside. The needy male neighbor keeps pestering them.

I figure what I have is the low-end corona virus; i.e. the common cold. I have coughed, sneezed, got a runny nose and early morning sore throat (I always get it with a cold). I also have a temperature of 95.1 today -- no fever. I am out of the soup I made a few days ago, so my friend brought me some tortilla soup she made, along with all the enhancements of cheese, chips and (darn- I forgot the name) the herb they use in Mexican dishes. Also bread, hash browns (only potatoes she could find) Coricidin, and cat food. Hope Orzo will eat that cat food for a while because she could only get one flavor.

They still say to keep medical appointments, but I was watching the update on COVID-19 and they were saying something about not going to the doctor offices with mild symptoms, but call instead, so I don't know about keeping those appointments. I am not going to keep the one, though. I might or might not keep Monday's and will have a mask if I do because I don't want to give anyone my cold and don't want to get anything from anyone, either.

I got the part to fix my old laptop computer Monday and finally got it fixed. I really missed using it but I have to get my new laptop going before this one totally gives out. It is so old.

Hubby and I are still struggling but I did manage to get my work done Monday. It was gruesome. LOL.

The Covid 19 virus is 2 counties away. 3 confirmed cases. I would not be surprised to find that we have it. It seems to me that they are deliberately keeping people from being tested to keep the numbers low.

Jazzy, we will be avoiding going anywhere unless we have to.

Darlene, Corona viruses cause the common cold, bronchitis, pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and now COVID-19. They can also affect the gut. The flu and Covid 19 share many symptoms and they both cause sneezing . You won't know if it is the flu or corona but you rule out the flu with a test. If you take flu vaccines you usually don't get the flu as bad but flu and pneumonia vaccines don't work on coronavirus. There is no treatment.

Some people have no symptoms. Symptoms include:

sneezing
runny nose
nasal congestion
fatigue
cough
fever
sore throat
exacerbated asthma
body aches
shortness of breath

Recovery depends on the strength of the immune system. Many of those who have died were already in poor health.

I hope that it hasn't hit at your house and hope you and your husband are better soon.

I have been reading the things that say how it differs from colds and flu. One of the differences it said from flu was not sneezing and getting runny nose. Then yesterday or this morning I was reading things you need to stock up on and it said Kleenex because you will need it for all the sneezing. So how do you tell the difference between COVID and the flu? Guess you don't. Just pray.

Seems they are going crazy everywhere. I don't know why they went after toilet paper like they did, but they are selling it on EBAY and Facebook for very high prices. One of the bakers at the store today told me she watched an interview with a couple men and they said they are selling the 4-packs for $50. That is ridiculous.

I hope that all of us get through this without getting it.

Things here are crazy but I am stocked up and we will ride this out. The shelves are empty in several stores. I have 4 books to read.

I feel better when I don't try to do too much. Taking it easy.

The storm damaged my computer so I have to use hubby's till I get it fixed.

May your BIL rest in peace.

It's Spring here. The weather has been really nice. Some rain but lots of warm days and sunny days since mid to late February and into March. The Spring peepers starting singing on March 1st. My crocus and periwinkle started blooming Sunday. I have spent a lot of time resting in bed or sitting outside in my swing trying to recover from this respiratory virus. I have not been as sick as I was in 2006 or 2013 but sick enough. I'm staying home. I have been able to keep up with most of my work by pacing myself though it takes me a lot longer. I'm low energy.

Jazzy, it sounds like you are doing well.

Darlene, I have not been able to walk much at one time lately. I like DST too.

Koshie, I am having trouble falling asleep too but everything else is okay.

I've been waking up okay, but Sunday night I didn't even go to bed. I have to admit, I did have some problems that kept me up, but mostly just did things I shouldn't have been doing all night. Soaked in the tub and did crosswords, then played solitaire on my phone until 5:30 or thereabouts. Needless to say, I didn't stay awake too long on Monday. I still like it light later even if I do have to get up earlier.

so far.... I'm shocked that I'm getting up at the right time (daylight savings time) in the mornings without an alarm. I'm also surprised at how dark it is at 6:30 in the morning -- and wondering why I'm waking up!
And I've managed to make dinner at the right (new, or is it old?) time.
The only difficulty I'm having is going to bed! I've actually only gotten in bed ONCE at the 'right" time since daylight savings went into effect -- but that doesn't mean I went to sleep!

Grrrrrr.......

We had a nice day today after the snow last night and cold this morning. I went for a short walk around 2 blocks (I'm not much of a walker because of my gut problems) this afternoon. I was going to go around the long block to see a house that is for sale for twice what the rest of the houses in the neighborhood go for, but had to get back to the house fast.

Fat Tuesday/Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras are all the same thing. Mardi Gras is fat Tuesday in French. A time of festivals and pigging out before a time of fasting for Lent which starts with Ash Wednesday. My religious sect doesn't observe it.

Windy and cold here too with snow showers.

I am feeling about 50% better today so we were able to keep our appointment to get our taxes done.

Jazzy, I now know when Ash Wednesday is. I keep wondering and thought it was around Mardi Gras, but I thought somebody said Mardi Gras was 2 Thursdays ago. Then heard it was today. So I am guessing Ash Wednesday is the day after Mardi Gras, but I might just be getting confused anyway. One of my friends is Catholic, but he never mentions it.

All the best wishes for your surgery.

We had it fairly cold the last couple of days, but nothing like today. The wind if blowing pretty hard and it is blowing ice, I think. I went to pickleball this morning and my hands were so col I almost couldn't hold my membership card to check into the rec center.

This afternoon I took my friend to lunch at Chili's for her birthday, which is tomorrow, but she has to work then. It was good. My gift card from Christmas covered everything with us ordering from the lunch combo menu. I had soup and half a chicken sandwich (well it says half anyway) and the mini molten. My sandwich is in the fridge for tonight if I am up to eating tonight. If not, I will have it tomorrow.

Morticiaaddams, I hope you get over whatever is making you ill real soon. And don't get as cold there as we are here.

Good job on the diet!!! You have done great!

Good luck with the surgery.

My hubby hasn't gotten sick yet, like me. I am hoping to perk up soon.

We may get some bad weather on Wednesday.

I love small dogs. It's a shame it would not work.

We bought some seeds to plant and need to get them started but I have been sick for days.

No signs of spring around here. We will get a couple days of clear weather, then back to snow again. This week we've had snow 3 days that, fortunately, was dry and soft so it wasn't icy. Last week I barely got out because it was icy all week and the week before was also icy, though I did get out that Thursday. This week I got to pickleball and went 3 days instead of 2. I have been so tired when I got home that I haven't gotten anything done. Tuesday I did get more done than the pickleball. The lady with a foster dog came over, so I was working on more house cleaning. After she left I went to a seed starting class. The foster dog was too small for here because there is too large a gap between my gate and fence (for his size), so I didn't get him. I need to get the fence fixed for anything, but have two large dog runs that can be fixed (gates put back on and weeded out) in the meantime until the fence can be fixed.

I haven't seen the foxes come around this year, so I think I can get the garden going outside. I hope so. I've ordered the seeds and seedlings for this year. If not, my neighbors and friends will get all the seeds.

Jazzy - I hope that they got all of the skin cancer. Congratulations on the weight loss.

Darlene - congratulations on the weight loss!

The weekend was really nice here. Sunny and in the 50s. I got outside and did some work. It was wonderful to discover signs of Spring everywhere. My crocus, daffodils, hyacinths, hearty amaryllis, iris, chives, etc. are all up in varying degrees. Some of my shrubs are getting ready to bud out, like my forsythia. The birds are starting to sing and chase each other. The squirrels are chasing each other too. Not too much going on here other than trying to avoid the flu as it is everywhere. Plus we caught 3 mice in the house and hubby cleaned a stinking hairball out of the bathroom sink the size of a mouse. We don't have a cat so he is our mouser and he is also in charge of hairballs too. If you know a way to prevent mice from coming inside or prevent hairballs from forming in the drains I would be interested.

Jazzy, sorry about your biopsy results. Hope they get all of it on the 27th. Congrats on the weight loss.

I have lost a couple pounds this week, but it is because I am barely eating anything. Ate a big supper last night and got really in pain after. So today it was a couple slices of bread and then some dinner tonight. Much smaller than last night's dinner.

Fancy, It has been cold here too and we may get some ice tonight.

Jazzy, I am glad your surgery went well.

I have never tried Nutri-System. It costs too much for me. That is why I go through Sparkpeople.

We had a little warmer day yesterday so I got out to pickleball and then walked on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Then got some new balls for pickleball and a sanding sponge for work in the kitchen I am trying to get done. Didn't get much sleep the night before, so I fell asleep for a long time after I got home.

Today is back to the cold and it has been snowing all day. I saw a report that just south of here they have 10 inches, with more to come. Suppose to be warm tomorrow, then 24 and snow on Sunday. My coat zipper won't open now, so I have to step out of it instead of taking it off the normal way.

Jazzy - great deal on the carpet remnant!

Fancy - I hate when they make changes like that too.

We got a light dusting of snow last night and it stayed around freezing all day so it didn't all melt. Gloomy. I got my tax stuff gathered up and ready to take to our appointment later in the month.

I guess we got about 4 inches of snow. It was going all yesterday and at least half the morning today. Plus it was only around 15 today, so I stayed in. They said the streets were very icy, so I didn't want to drive anywhere.

I just read that the pickleball courts they put in last year are going to have very limited hours now. So when summer comes the only time anyone can play on them is the hottest part of the day, 10 to 4. In a discussion on Nextdoor they were thinking it was because neighbors were complaining, but it is someone on the City Council. I cannot understand that. If the neighbors to the park aren't complaining, why is a city council person taking it to court so we can't [lay when they are the ones who authorized it?

Jazzy, good luck with your surgery. Have a speedy recovery!

Darlene. We may get snow too this week. I would probably have the hernia repair.

Got up late Saturday. Hubby was feeling sick all day and was cranky. We did some shopping and errands - got gas, went to Rural King to get wild life food, Schnucks for groceries, Walmart for more phone stuff. Tried to sit outside and it was too cold. I regretted getting out of bed really. LOL.

Sunday was beautiful here and in the mid 60s so hubby and I got outside some. We are not into sports or commercials but we do like animals, including dogs, so we watched a little of the Puppy Bowl. So many cute dogs!

Today was nice and warm too but the sun when in and it started to sprinkle. I got my laundry, cleaning, and vacuuming done. I am trying to finish another Joanna Fluke book today. They tend to go on a little too long.

Jazzy, it was 72 here yesterday and really sunny. Today it is around 20 (high to be around 25) and is snowing. Tomorrow around 15, I think it said. It's suppose to snow most days the next two weeks. Guess that is what we get for having little snow before. We've had a few days with snow, but not a lot of them. Most of the time we get our snows later in the year.

There was something the doctor said when I was at the surgery clinic about the hernia can be causing some of my IBS problems. If so, maybe it would be good to get it fixed. I am just so scared about it. At Independence Day they said there were fireworks every year at a certain place that I didn't know about and I thought maybe I could go there this year to see them. Suddenly I got the distinct feeling I wouldn't be around then. So it makes me even more scared to have the surgery. I just am not ready to die.

Thanks!

I donate to Goodwill, a local hospital, USA Again, Rescue Mission. Some of them take anything

I hope you can get this health situation resolved soon. Hugs

I hope that your MRSA can be under control real fast and you don't have a long, big problem with it.

I am going to try donating some of the stuff in here as I get it cleaned. I don't know what they would take, though. Much of what is here is really old. I was looking at one of my long dresses and thinking maybe I can take it to a costume place over on Broadway. It's a '70s granny dress or peasant dress. The formals I have around aren't really in style anymore, but maybe I can put some of them in places that sell on commission. I have a bridesmaid's dress that has spaghetti straps.

We are having rather crazy weather, too. During the night last night it snowed and is likely to snow some tonight, but tomorrow is suppose to be in the mid-50s and the weekend in the upper-60s. Then freezing Monday and below the next couple days with snow and back to low-40s and 50s a couple days. So crazy.

Today I had the surgery consult appointment. They are pretty insistent that I have my hernia fixed because they are sure that is what caused the problem that sent me to the ER in December. I am afraid to have another surgery. I don't want to die. They also said the reason they wanted me to see the gastroenterologist is because my liver enzymes are high. Well, I don't have the money for either that appointment or the surgery. My friend said she would pay the surgery cost, but it is over $300. Fortunately, they have the indigent care program here that lowers that from the deductible of something like $1250, plus $300-500/day in the hospital stay. Anyway, I still need to lose as close to 25 pounds as I can before the end of March and figure out how to get my liver enzyme down. I don't know what is causing them to rise.

The temps are still crazy here - up and down, up and down, up and down. I would just as soon it level out somewhere and stay - in the 40s, 50s, 60s, whatever. We have threats of sleet, freezing rain, snow, ice, rain every few days and have gotten a dusting of snow again today but it melted quickly. It's always cloudy, gloomy, dark, dismal, foggy. I am seeking out my SAD light because the sun seldom shines. Kind of sick of it. LOL.

My MRSA is active again. I have one on my temple. I rarely have any on my face. They hurt no matter where you have them and there is no convenient place. I hope it's not going to get real big and have to be lanced and leave a scar. When my MRSA is active I feel rung out. I just had a fever blister. I am sneezing. Wheezing off and on. Some nasal congestion. Hot and cold. Not sick but not well. Kind of sick of it. LOL.

Hubby and I both have our phones now and both of us are struggling to use them. We thought they were similar but they aren't. We are complete morons with either phone though. LOL. Hubby would like to use his and I really don't care. He has spent hours dealing with his and has accomplished one thing - he says he managed to get my numbers programmed in. LOL. Last night between the 2 of us we managed to get my important numbers put in. I was ready to put the "mother" to bed after that. Kind of sick of it. LOL.

Do you see a trend here? LOL. I am getting some things done though. Lots of things. I am throwing away stuff every day, organizing stuff, putting things away, donating things. It makes me happy until I can get outside again. I am making my own "sunshine"

My vacuum I have had for years I take outside to change bags and while I am doing that I use the hose and blow out my vacuum hose out completely. On the new one I didn't have the height level right. I still had it for carpet and I was on the floor. I didn't even think of it until today.

Upline is in multi-lever marketing. It is the only way I found good essential oils back then. I have heard that Aura Casia oils are good and pure, but they weren't back then. The others at stores I wouldn't trust for many things. They might be okay for just scents.

I've been trying to clean some more today. Didn't have much luck with the vacuum my friend gave me. She thinks it maybe clogged in the hose. Hopefully I can figure it out tomorrow.

I don't know much about Essential Oils and don't know what an upline is. A therapy pool sounds great. We don't have wither one here. Very rural and limited on things like this. I don't even think we have pickleball.

I enjoyed the aromatherapy class. It is hard for me to learn much because my uplines are all in Minnesota and most of their classes are there. There is at least one lady who has classes in Littleton (SW of where I live in Denver) and she welcomes me to her classes, but the other people in the lines don't allow people not in their downline to attend their classes. I used to go to one until I was told she doesn't allow people not in her downline. I had been invited by someone who was in her downline, so I didn't know I couldn't go back. I hadn't heard of other essential oils other than the cheap ones at the store before I got into the Young Living ones.

You would be surprised who plays the pickleball, though I can understand why you wouldn't. There is one lady who had both knees replaced because of the arthritis she developed from tennis. She has bad scar tissue, so does everything she can to get rid of it and is really stiff legged, but she is a good player as far as she can. The others who have had knee replacements had their surgeries heal okay and aren't bothered by it when playing. My knees and back hurt bad when I play (or when I go walking). I should go back to the therapy pool, which might help, but I can't afford the gas for there. It is at the very north end of town. I wish they would put one in closer to me. I really enjoyed that.

I have arthritis so I don't think I could play pickleball as well as these people.

My old stove only had one working burner anymore. The lower oven wasn't really safe to use, I don't think, because the mice were eating the insulation, and the upper oven didn't keep the right temperature. I was making cookies once and had it at 325, but while it was baking it went up to close to 500 and I burned everything. Then it went back down again. So my friend found the one I have now at the store that supports the Habitat for Humanities (or whatever the name is that I can't think of now). Then I go and wreck the burner.

Pickleball has people of all ages playing it. Mostly those I play with are older than me, but ages run from mid-50s to 87. It is so fun to watch Barb play. She is 85, I think (that or 84, but I think only 2 years younger than her husband. She can run after those balls way better than I can. One lady that just started playing last year is 80.

After pickleball today I had a class on aromatherapy and we ended the class by making a spray mist with whatever oils we liked. I used Lavender, Clary Sage, Rosemary, and Ylang-Ylang. I enjoyed that.

My stove needs some burners replaced. Always something.

I would try pickleball if I were younger.

We have too many blankets and I have some I don't want too.

We have had a Weather Alert since 3:30 am and have had a little Winter Mix this morning. Nothing major as it is warming up. Cloudy and in the 30s. I got some errands and shopping done yesterday. Finished a book I was reading and started another.

Today I am going to do some cooking and am going to read about how to use my new phone.

I got a little more cleaning done today. Not a lot, but got my table cleaned. My stove is a lot cleaner. I had used the automatic cleaner on the oven and the heat melted a small container that I had put the packages of dried cranberries in. Also melted several of the packages. I guess I need to get a new burner and the part that goes under them on the stove. I melted something on them some time ago. I didn't think the heat from the oven would go through like that, though. Nothing damaged on other burners. I have had troubles with the mice on there, but there isn't anything for them to get into. They don't get into the cranberries.

I didn't go to pickleball today. I had a pretty good sleep last night, but when I woke this morning my back, neck, and shoulder were hurting and one hip. Didn't think I could make it through the pickleball.

I've been thinking I need to donate some blankets. I have to get them cleaned, though, or washed anyway and try to get the fur off of them. Seems that every time I mention something my friend gives me something. We were talking about Amana, Iowa and I mentioned a nice wool blanket my aunt brought me some time back. Mice ate it and I said something about wishing I could go there and get a new one. I now have a big bag of wool blankets. Then I asked if she had an electric blanket like she gave me a few years ago because I was having trouble getting mine to work. She gave me a new one. It's a twin, so I have it at my chair in the living room. One for my lap and an electric throw for my back. Got to get her to calm down on those things. I did figure out the large blanket. Has to be plugged in in a certain order. I'll keep what she has given me and get rid of the others.

Sorry you didn't get much sleep the last few nights. Hope you can get more tonight.

I'm dreading using the new phone and am putting it off. My hubby is threatening to call me on it.

The Stock Show sounds neat. We don't have much of that here.

We got above freezing today which is very welcome. The sun is out some. Night before last I only got 2 hours sleep. Last night I got 4.93 hours. I wanted more and I'm still tired. I am not getting a lot done so far. Trying to go through some clothes to get rid of anyway. And finish a book I'm reading. And do some paperwork and bills.

You guys are both busy. I am going to have to check for new books by Joanne Fluke and Laura Childs. There are a few others I was starting on, but I can't remember the authors. For now, I am going to try a book called Writing Diet that another team is using right now. I don't know how well I can do with that, though, because I don't write very well.

I can understand about the phone. I have been using a newer one this year and am constantly having to go down to the store to find out how to do this thing or that thing. That after starting to use smart phones several years ago. You get a new one, even of the same brand, and you just can't figure them out.

Last Tuesday I went to the Stock Show with a friend of mine. He likes to go see the western art show and all the booths. I also like to see the animal events, but I only got to see about an hour of the Reined Cowhorse Bridle Event. Walked an awful lot, though. My legs hurt for a couple days after that. I found some really pretty barrettes there. I had been thinking I wanted to get something nicer to put my loose hair back in and they just fit the bill. Plus they were the least expensive thing at the show. They are a really shiny, diamond cut pewter.

Glad you are better. Your bedroom will look great when you are done.

January in the Ohio River Valley is changeable. The temps are really up and down here. Recently we got a lot of rain plus a lot of dark, cloudy, foggy days. Our entire yard was spongy. Then last Friday we had a 12 hour winter weather advisory which lasted longer as we had some sleet and ice. Saturday the winds were unreal and the temps plummeted followed by bitter cold temps. We got a dusting of snow last night and some flurries today. Due to this, I have not wanted to work outside lately nor has my hubby. We do what I have to do outside but we have not done any more decluttering outside and won't unless it makes it to 50. The birds and squirrels are frantic due to this cold. One of the squirrels found a way to shimmy upside down on the wire to get to the suet feeder so hubby had to make a baffle to keep them off. We feed the squirrels every day but we are not going to have them steal all the bird's food too.

I needed a new pair of tennis shoes and found ONE pair here a week ago Thursday that would work. I don't much like the looks of them but I had no choice but this pair. Hubby is going to be going with me on the weekends to do my shopping out of town now in order to avoid the high sales tax here. Not crazy about that but on the positive side I may be able to cut back on having to go to town to maybe once during the week unless I have an appointment.

I went to the library a week ago Thursday and spent some time there. I finished up reading Laura Childs series on the tea shop and the cackleberry cafe. My hubby said that his dad would call eggs cackleberries. I had never heard eggs called that before. It is something from the 1950s. I am not interested in reading Childs scrapbook series. Sometimes I spend longer periods at the library to see if they have new books by authors I have read that they didn't have before and I found one new M.C. Beaton book - "Death of a Witch" in the Hamish series. I also like her Agatha Raisin series. I learned she recently died on December 30th. She is one of my favorite authors. I love her sense of humor. I also found they have some new books by Rhys Bowen I have not read in 2 of her series. I checked out one of those too. I also checked out 2 books by Joanna Fluke. My first time to read her. So far I like her first book.

I am still taking bags of clothes to town to donate and sending small bags of stuff to work for hubby to throw away.

I started using my new Waterpik. Not hard to use but it is different. I bought a few cookbooks.

I slept horrible last night and am exhausted today but every Monday is laundry and cleaning day so I am working on it. The cleaning and vacuuming are done but I still have 2 out of 3 loads of laundry to fold and hang. Last Tuesday the power co-op came and put a new power pole in for us. The pole has been rotten for years. It was interesting to watch. There were 3 men using 2 power trucks and they were very organized which makes me want to be more organized. After they left I had some errands in town to run. I did some batch cooking on Wednesday. Thursday I went to the bank, post office, and did some grocery shopping. Friday I went to the library to return some books.

Saturday I finally bought a cell phone because my tracfone is going to 4G and my little flip phone I bought in 2011 is not. A kid at Walmart got it going for us but I don't how to work it and am not eager to learn. I had 6500 plus minutes and a few months service left on my flip phone so hopefully they were transferred. I did not get a fancy one nor one with a plan but it is a Smart Phone, I think, and will be a lot smarter than me, no doubt. A man at work gave hubby a year old phone and we have to get it set up too. I think people are going to be mad at us because we will never be the type to carry a phone around. It's not who were are. To be honest there are too many needy people who are constantly looking for a favor and we don't intend to be the person to fulfill that duty.

Sounds like a good project though. I don't like our ceilings. Get well soon!

It's great to see others getting rid of stuff too! I am working on it every day.

We had a very warm day today except the wind was blowing cold. I was mainly inside except to go out and get Orzo's litter. Now to figure out how that litter box will work. The next few days are going to be colder here, too, with Friday forecast to be a high of 32 to 34. Yuck.

I did some work in my kitchen today. Darn mice have come back in and I can't get rid of them, so I am trying to get rid of what I have in the house. Orzo doesn't care if there are mice in the house anymore. I did a little in the living room right next to me, but more in the kitchen. I'm taking out some of the plastic bags in there and going to take them to a recycle place at the grocery store. Throwing away some more stuff, I hope. Need to clean out the fridge, too.

Today was sunny and in the upper 40s. It's our last nice weather day for a while as we are going to get a lot of rain for 3 days. I got rid of some limbs in the yard today but I have been mostly decluttering inside. I am continuing my goal of finding things to donate, sell, or throw away daily. Today I put some some old food outside for the wildlife. I got rid of some expired medicine. I threw away a pair of shoes. I rounded up some almost-new socks to give away that I purchased but didn't like.

Well, I got the phone straightened out. It took at least two hours to get it.

It was nice today and warm. Pickleball was crowded, so I didn't get as much play. At least it didn't seem like it.

Finally got to meet up with my friend from Ft. Morgan and give her girls the things I had for them. I was going to give the one a cake decorating case for the last year and since things were so close to Christmas I gave the other girl a cookie press since her mom said she likes to help bake. They were in town today for a doctor's appointment. It was nice to see them again. I hadn't seen them since Carrie's mother passed away.

The phone situation sounded very stressful. I hope you find out what is causing your fatigue. My cat liked tuna broth and things like that.

Just had some fun trying to get my phone bill paid. It's a pre-pay so I would lose coverage tomorrow if I didn't get it paid, but the credit card company didn't apply my payment to them until after 10 tonight, so there wasn't enough in there to pay Verizon at 8. Then there was a problem trying to get another card put in so I could pay with it. The second card was pulling straight from my checking account. But the card wouldn't go in.

Orzo doesn't like broth, even if it is a special broth for cats, I found out. So today he wasn't going to eat because I put that in his bowl, even though I added quite a bit of his regular canned with sauce.

I got a very little bit of de-cluttering done, but the bill problem took me away from that. I was late getting to it because I fell asleep again during the day. I am tired of being tired all the time, but tests never show why.

I hope you both lose the weight you gained previously quickly.

Hubby and I are trying to get back into the groove. He has 22 "vacation" days a year - 15 vacation days, 3 personal days, 4 perfect attendance days and he took most of them in November and December this year. That doesn't count his 6 paid holidays and unpaid days off when the plant is closed. Many of them are in November and December too. So this is the first full week he has worked in a while and it will be an adjustment for us.

Hubby and I ran some errands on Saturday. It was warmer Sunday so Hubby and I worked outside and got 2 old toilets and a bunch of glass ready to haul off today. Glad to have that load of stuff gone. We went through one of the last piles of outdoor junk and decided what to keep and get rid of but we need to organize it now and haul it off. Later on we will go through the 5 outbuildings to look for stuff to get rid of. I stepped on a shard of glass and stabbed it into my foot but I'm okay. Not a lot of blood but my tennis shoe is toast. I need new ones anyway. Today is laundry, cleaning, and vacuuming. Then some paper work. I fixed some chicken yesterday for supper. I am doing some decluttering inside too. Threw away some clothes today. My fitbit didn't work for over 2 days but I got it going.

I am having problems with my weight going back up now. Guess it has to do mostly with crackers this week. I use them in my soup, then get the munchies and finish the sleeve. Usually don't eat much of anything else during the day, though.

Had to have my brakes replaced today. When I told my mechanic what they sounded like he said to come over in an hour. It really makes a difference how my truck stops now.

Sounds busy. I need to finish my laundry and get some new in there. I always end up needing to wear what I need to put in the washer, though.

Went and picked up the medicine for Orzo's mouth and some more of his soup for cats that goes on his food so he will eat. Hope the medicine doesn't stop his eating. He has been doing good, except only eating the wet and no dry food. Then headed to the store and got a few things for me.

We got so much done on hubby's vacation over the holidays. Now I am trying to get back on schedule again. I was very busy today - did 3 loads of laundry, vacuuming, mopping, carpet cleaning, house cleaning, running the dishwasher. Plus miscellaneous chores. Two weeks worth of work crammed into a day. LOL

I am so glad that Orzo is okay. Sounds like a Miracle. Not much on T.V. ever for us.

Last night I thought I was going to lose Orzo. He fell off the chair, then was laying flat out next to my chair and panting 90 miles an hour and totally out of it. I gathered him up and was holding him and he continued to be that way. I saw a light on next door and went there for help, but they were in bed. Turns out Jamie heard me crying when I came home and they came over. Orzo's back end was paralyzed. After about an hour his breathing got better and he curled his head in to its normal position, then his tail started flicking and eventually he started moving his legs again. Jamie went back home and Orzo finally wanted down and went and got a drink. I took him to a vet today, but I don't think she had any idea really what was wrong She did say they couldn't do anything for any possibilities, that I just have to watch him. He is comfortable now, was laying on the table in front of the window and has now moved to his chair. Seems the year just keeps getting worse.

I just stayed home yesterday and watched Matchgame on TV. They didn't even have a football game on anywhere. I thought there was always a college bowl game on on Christmas. I couldn't find anything interesting to watch except the Matchgame.

Nice gifts!!

For Christmas Eve we went out for breakfast and stopped at the meat market. We worked outside again burning old lumber. For Christmas Eve we had New York Strip steaks, seasoned fries, slaw, a roll, black olives, green olives, pickle, fruit salad, cookie, piece of fudge.

Today I made a nice breakfast. We worked outside for a while gathering up stuff to haul off and burn. All the neighbors were blasting off guns all day. For Christmas we had beef roast with potatoes, carrots, celery, onions plus slaw, a roll, black olives, green olives, pickle, fruit salad, cookie, piece of fudge.

Merry Christmas!!

We have been having nice weather too, but it will start cooling off on Christmas. Not a white Christmas, though.

Today I was trying to wrap some presents and found some ornaments I had made one year when I was taking painting classes (ongoing ones). I decided they might make some nice gifts. Then went to Dollar Tree to get some gift bags because my wrapping isn't too good. Also found a box that I think one of the ornaments might fit in. Also went and got a marker brush (or whatever they are called) to sign a painting that I forgot to sign before I took it over to the neighbors.

Was going to fix my roast today, but don't have all the ingredients. I think I can substitute for one and mince my own garlic for it, though. I will have to get it done in the morning, for sure. I sliced up one of the turkey tenders and had half a sandwich for lunch and will eat the rest for supper, maybe. I don't know if I can actually handle that much. It's a large size sandwich.

Hope you all have a really Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah if you celebrate that.

Thursday I did shopping and errands.

Friday hubby had to work a half day. We were supposed to go to the company Xmas dinner but I had a fever blister and he has a MRSA and contaminating a buffet is not something I would consider doing. I did some work outside though.

Saturday was our anniversary and we drove out of town to the Metroeast St. Louis area and ate and went to Sam's.

Sunday we were outside working all day. Hubby worked on the old truck. I was burning limbs all day.

Today we went and did some errands - post office, library, water office, bank. Spent some time outside as the weather is wonderful.

I came home early from pickleball today and worked on my watercolor some. It didn't work the way he said to do it in the book (said to drop the colors on the paper, but they wouldn't drop). Then went for the last lesson at the library. I finally got something to come out fairly well. It wasn't the greatest, because I was having trouble getting the Misket on very well, but I was really happy with it. I did one snowflake picture on a postcard and am working on a card with evergreens and will put decorations on it and maybe packages and snow. Both used salt to make falling snow.

They did come out here to mark all of the lines at least.

I like to watch the art on PBS too.

Those companies never seem to be able to notify first. I remember calling one year because they say to always call before you dig anywhere and I was doing the garden, I think. Someone drove over, put a flag on the lawn and left. That doesn't show where the gas line is. I still don't know where it is.

I started on a watercolor painting for practice, but the masking took too long to dry and I fell asleep for a few hours, so didn't get too far with it. To do some of what it calls for I need to get the masking film (paper type) and I didn't want to go out. I watch a show on PBS where the guy uses tape to cover where he wants masked, so I used that today. I need to find my exacto knife, but I couldn't find it today. That is one thing I can't figure out -- how the guy can tell where to cut that tape after he has it on his canvas (he does acrylics and oils). If I wake in the middle of the night like I did Monday I will work on the painting.

Got a tiny bit of cleaning done before I fell asleep. Not enough to do much, but a little bit anyway until I had to rest the back.

I have been on Medicare for 2 years and they have paid for everything.

I am losing weight for some unknown reason.

We made it to town yesterday and ran some errands and did some shopping. The state roads were cleared and the county roads weren't too bad. The side roads still need some work. Hubby was back to work today. The power company showed up to put in the new power pole. They were supposed to notify 2 days before so I could have everything set up so they couldn't do it. I had the washer and dryer going, was vacuuming, cleaning. These people are a joke. They can't do the simplest things right. Cold today and dreary. Got lots done.

I got the anti-gas (ultra) and just got some Beano (store didn't have generic or I'd have gotten that). I am just hoping they will work.

I was called to set up the appointment for gastroenteritis today, but I don't think it will be worth spending the money on. All they ever tell me is I have to figure out what I can and can't eat on my own because the problem I have is IBS and nothing else. So I declined that one and set up my eye appointment instead. So I have 2 specialist appointments next month instead of 3. Can't afford one. It says that if you are admitted to the hospital they don't charge for ER, but I don't know if it really works that way. I don't know about where you are, but medical charges around here, especially at hospitals, aren't transparent. Most of them you get a lot of surprise charges. I know what each of them is only because of the paperwork on my CICP (discount program) card. They had something on one of the TV channels because they were being charged so much over what had been indicated they would be charged.

I eat my meals with a little apple cider vinegar to help digestion. I also take anti-gas pills, generic Beano and another anti-gas pill if I am going to eat things that cause me gas. They are sold over the counter.

I stayed lazy until Sunday, then went to church, to a dog adoption event, and shopping. I shopped for healthier food, then went to Big Lots and did a little Christmas shopping. I am hoping what I got will work for the kids. There are a couple things I would like to get from there for the adults, too, and I will check on something for one of the girls in Ft. Morgan. I had already said I wanted to give her sister something for her cake decorating (she competes in 4H) but I figure the younger sister needs something too. Didn't have any idea what kind of things she is into, but it turns out she likes baking and cooking, too. Oh, maybe I can give her a couple cookbooks or else I am going to get her a cookie press.

I was thinking the gym was closed this week, but it was only today. Tomorrow and Thursday pickleball is on. Yay! They are closed next Monday through Wednesday, then will be open again. Funny, when I called to see if the gym was open he told me that it would be all ready for pickleball this week. I only asked if it was open.

Do you know any ways to make things that cause gas problems not cause gas? I want some broccoli. I got some baby broccoli florets and some Beano so I can try. I'm a little afraid to try it, though.

Darlene, I am so sorry that you have been so sick! I hope you are feeling better now.

Days and days of gloom lately and cold weather. I got my shopping and errands done last Thursday and Friday - post office, library, bank, meat market, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Walmart, Kroger. It was only in the upper 30s on Saturday but hubby and I spent the day outside rounding up limbs and old wood and we burned it all day until almost dark. We still have a lot of old wood to burn but the amount is going down. We then had to go to Menard's and Lowe's to get some things hubby needed. Sunday morning we went to town to finish some errands before the Winter Weather Advisory arrived at noon and this advisory has been on going for 2 days now - rain, winter mix, sleet, snow, freezing rain. Constantly. A grab bag of Winter Gluck. Hubby took today and tomorrow off as vacation days so he didn't have to drive in it. He got out to clean off the satellite dish and feed some wildlife but I have not been outside at all. No desire to fall again and break something else. Not much wildlife showing up - 3 deer, a possum, 2 cats. We feel yucky in weather like this so we are hitting the Airborne again.

The last couple days weren't so great for me. On Tuesday I did get to pickleball, then had lunch with a friend (picked her up a grilled chicken and iced tea and took it and my ham sandwich to her house for lunch). picked up a really nice picture of Cassie and her remains. My stomach had been hurting all day and it got really bad Tuesday evening and I finally asked my neighbor to take me to the hospital. Approximately 6 hours of upchucking finally stopped in the ER. There were a few thoughts of what it could be, but no specific diagnosis. Was admitted for observation and tests Wednesday morning and finally got to come home this afternoon. Still have the pains in my stomach, but not as bad and more intermittent than constant.

I hadn't eaten anything since Tuesday mid-afternoon and wasn't allowed anything until this afternoon. Then was to order a "diabetic" diet. I thought the hot turkey sandwich might be good. Needed more carbs. So I added a sweet potato. Needed more carbs, so got a jello cup. Finally had enough carbs for them. I couldn't believe it. Of all that I had about 2 ounces of turkey.

Not staying too awake after all that so I've been trying to nap. Maybe Orzo will let me now that he has eaten a little.

Jazzy, the concert sounded nice.

Darlene, I have never had a smartphone so I know nothing about them.

AT&T came and worked on our phone yesterday so it is working again. We took 2 more loads of scrap to the recycling center, the 4 bags of trash to the dumpster, and the batteries to the battery shop. So we did 4 loads in a little over a week and made around $100. We made the most from the 10 batteries. We still have the box of aluminum left as we have more to add to it. I vacuumed, did 3 loads of laundry, and cleaned today. The yard is starting to look great.

My friend does scrap metal selling. I don't know how much he gets here.

Jazzy, that sounds nice to see your grandson in the concert.

Today I woke up to the news saying it was snowing (fell asleep in front of the TV last night, which isn't unusual). I know it's not suppose to be very warm today, but I haven't seen any snow and it is really sunny now.

Had to go to the Verizon store yesterday again. I actually fixed the problem with my phone on the way down there, but didn't know it. Suddenly I had to be hooked up to an internet/wi-fi in order to do anything other than talk or text. I haven't ever had that problem. I was trying to get one of the 3-day coupons at the grocery and couldn't. After going to the Verizon store I was able to get it. They had the large bags of chocolate chips on sale, down from $3.69 to $1.69. I want to make things for Christmas, so I wanted those. I guess the first thing to do is turn the phone off and restart it any time there is something not working. Both my friend and I were having trouble getting Google Maps (gps) on Saturday.
