You know how I am about grocery shopping but guess what folks? I got it ALL done Friday night! All of it. Even for the big meal on Thursday. I left work early for a doctor’s appointment, went to make another appointment for something else and the gals at the front desk told me they’d see me right then so I got two of my appointments out-of-the-way without even trying and then had time to do my shopping. So glad that is done. Now, I can enjoy my week off.
As for the appointment and the health issues I mentioned the other day, my doctor didn’t seem as concerned with my low iron or the shape of my red blood cells since my numbers in other areas looked really good. But he can’t seem to understand how I am functioning with the levels being what they are. He said my reserves are depleted and that I should be completely exhausted. Sometimes, I am but not always. He’s choosing to continue to keep an eye on it for now.
My coffee this morning is so good. I really look forward to that first cup in the morning and today’s cup is especially good. The weather is nice. Cool in the morning and evenings but warmish in between and I am just sitting here while the sun streams in through the window. The Otter Pup is on my lap and we are cozy, at least for a little bit. Gotta pick up The Girl from a sleepover and then we are off to church.
Did I mention that I am off the for the week.? There will be some cooking on Wednesday and of course on Thanksgiving itself but that’s okay. The kids are not out of school until Thursday so I can tidy-up a little and hopefully read a lot.
King!! Gotta finish Revival. I want to start The Rosie Effect and I need to finish up all the other stuff I have halfway read. I DID ditch The Slap and I got an ARC for a book written by a blogger called It Was Me All Along which is about her drastic weight loss and how she struggles to keep it off every day. I normally don’t read books like this but I feel as if I already know her since I’ve been reading her blog, Can You Stay For Dinner, for well over a year.
I am still on a Lucy kick. Oh, and I guess I can share it now. The Teen got the lead in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels so of course we had to see the movie on Netflix even though it’s quite different from the Broadway show. We are very proud. He really wanted this part and he’s very excited!! To keep it all straight, he’s doing The 39 Steps in December, Annie in February and now Dirty Rotten Scoundrels in May.
I made tacos this weekend but have no idea what we’ll have for dinner tonight. My inclination is to keep the week simple since we will be in a food coma come Thursday.
I am very grateful for being able to take this week off.
Happy Thought For the Week:
The smell of roasting turkey while watching Miracle on 34th Street. Also, I love the Macy’s parade and seeing all those Broadway numbers!
For those who celebrate, are you staying home this week or will you be hitting the road to see family?
