Went out with my three older sisters and one of my nieces for supper tonight. I invited one of my other nieces but she couldn’t come – it would have been nice to see her. It was enjoyable and comical kind of because we all had health news to share. We all had to agree, getting older sucks.
I left them and went to Walgreens to pick up a prescription – they only had one ready so I told them I’d pick up the other two tomorrow. I got home and had an email from them saying they were ready to be picked up now – go figure. I only plan on getting out once tomorrow – in that one trip, I plan to hit the gym, get my prescriptions, go to the laundromat and hit the store. Then I will be home for the day and finish cleaning. Have I mentioned lately how much I hate this apartment?
Well keeping the lights on has helped with my moods – I’ve seen a big improvement. I do believe if I get sun lamps I will see even greater results so will look into getting that. I can’t wait to go to nights – really, it will be nice to get away from the tension of evenings.
Came home and started some cleaning then walked the dogs. It is 1:30 in the morning now and I’m leaning towards bed but probably won’t go yet. I’m actually craving coffee but will resist that temptation too. Would drink some tea if I had any but I don’t.
My christmas trees are blinking and look lovely, if I do say so myself. I was rather disappointed that Panera wasn’t decorated for Christmas. My one sister said they are too expensive for no more than you get which I would have to agree on. One other sister said they drowned too many onions in the potato soup which I didn’t think so but I thought they went overboard on the salt.
I must confess, I came home and ate a raw potato coated in salt. I am going to pour the salt out – it is going to kill me to do so but if I have it in the house I will eat it and salt food. Someone said once that sea salt wasn’t bad for you – does anyone know if that is true? I don’t care much for it but could learn to like it faster than artificial salt.
No doubt my real butter will have to become history too – how sad. However, one of my older sisters has to give herself insulin shots four times a day so I guess if I can avoid that by eating right then I will make the effort. I’ve been telling myself that I quit drinking soda so I can quit eating salt.
