LOL, 2 getting started Posted, one right after another. I chose the one a minute earlier.

Good Morning everyone,

A work from home day today. I have an appointment with the hair dresser at 5:30. My hair is long enough to twist up with a hair clip, so I think it is time to gt rid of the length since I now prefer to wear it up.

Today I will clean off the card table with my sewing machine. A lot got piled on when DGS14Months was here. DS2 is going to bring the ironing board form his Dad's house for me to use. I think I have been procrastinating because the ironing of the king sized top and back is such a pain.

Have a great day,
Maggie

Postings at the same time are what cause me to "lock up" and lose everything that I spent time writing. Wish there was a way to resolve that problem.

I have never felt more hurt than I do today.

To make it short, my last conversations with my sister boil down to (1) that my FL family is NONE of my business, (2) that a great-aunt is a nobody, (3) that her and her daughter's business is again NONE of my business not that I ever asked her about her business and the only thing I know about her finances is what SHE told me and she volunteered when she wanted my help to get her finances in order and (4) that her habit of calling me to complain about her daughter, her daughter's boyfriend and her husband is my fault.

I just wonder how she would have felt if I had told her that her debt over the last 30 some years was NONE of my business or MY responsibility or if I had taken my share of the small inheritance my mother left.

I am so hurt and so angry at the same time that I could spit tacks. I guess that when I lost my mom, that it left me without any family whatsoever. I keep a small notebook where I write periodically to God asking for his help. I wrote him this morning asking him to help me forgive her because she doesn't always think before she speaks and doesn't know what she says when she spews the words out, but I'm not so sure that I can this time.

Good morning all,

The grocery store ads came out yesterday and there is not much there. Winn-Dixie has a weekend special on eggs. And save alot has a T-bone steak special which I will get for hubs for an early Dad day dinner. It is supposed to rain on Sunday. Rest of the time, we will eat out of the freezer.

I contacted 4 house painting companies and I have them scheduled for estimates. One is this afternoon. That means I can run to Lowe's and try to use my coupon this morning. This is after I walk 2 miles with my neighbor and about 1/2 mile with hubs.

Hubs has agreed to get up earlier in order to walk when it is cooler. That will be nicer for everyone. I can't go with my neighbor until he has his breakfast. An earlier rise means an earlier breakfast. An earlier, cooler walk. :)

I have been surprised by the nice effect gelatin has on my skin. Sugar free jello every night is nice, but I think I want to add some additional gelatin. I was getting the "jelly" off of cooking the chicken skin and bones of split chicken breasts, but I am out of it. So I bought some unflavored gelatin and will make it today. It was quite cheap. Should be interesting.

I had hubs order some cheap salt and pepper grinders from Amazon. I want to enhance the flavoring I add to meats. Since I have to keep meals simple, better spices are a big deal. I am also experimenting with a wider variety of Mexican spices.

I told my neighbor yesterday while walking that the eye specialist thinks my wet macular degeneration(MD) will likely be reversed to dry MD(vision is restore) by the end of the year. She said she didn't know that was possible. She is terribly afraid of MD. I guess because a friend of hers is now legally blind due to it. I also told the doctor that my night vision is suddenly better. He said it is a temporary effect of my growing cataracts. It will reverse as they get worse. Oh joy. :roll:

Well, my day in the sun last week is now a tan. I still feel like avoiding the sun, but I did buy some some block. I really dislike that stuff. I use it a bit, but it makes my face break out with a rosecea attack. They warn that may happen. And it did. My face is unfriendly to most products.

Today, I am grateful that I survived the visit to the eye specialist. The dilation effects are gone and the injection is ok. I am also grateful that the vision is returning a bit. Have a good day everyone. Be safe. Stay healthy.

I'm sorry Maggie. I waited a bit and didn't see you online, so I didn't know you were posting. I will wait longer tomorrow.

Logic, sorry if there was a lock up for you. I make it a habit to copy my post to ensure it doesn't go "poof". Still this site is pretty good.
