Had a fun day. Met my old library friends for lunch and dominoes. Didn't win but one round, but had great conversations, and fun playing. It was too hot to cut grass when I came home. So I guess I took it pretty easy today. Heated up some l... Read more

I thank you all for all the kind words yesterday. I know that I try and stay busy. I guess I feel bad that I am not working and Margaret is. I am hoping this is temporary and that after I get the knees replaced, that I can get back to work pa... Read more

Trying to establish some habits or routines. I am feeling sort of down, in that I don't think I am getting enough done. As much as I see what needs to be done, my physical limitations bog me down. Taking it one day at a time. This morning wa... Read more

Had a good day! Started with the Prayer Breakfast at church. I didn't feel like going and had to talk myself into going, knowing that it is a place to recruit guys to come to the retreat. This was something that I started at our church, but s... Read more

Why do grocery stores move things around? Is it part of the customer annoyance program? Our Shop-N-Save moved everything around in the store "to enhance the shopper's experience" I was told. This made my shopping event more difficult but grea... Read more

This was a bummer day. I woke up at 5:45 a.m. and my knees were giving me intense pain. My sinuses also were dealing me a fit. So I got up, and took an allergy pill and a pain pill and hoped they would kick in so I could go to church. Howeve... Read more
