Day 364 Happy New Year

As you can tell I am off a day. Somewhere during the year I missed a day. Oh well, I will try and do better next year. This is why I need to post eveyday, even if it's just a picture. That way I don't miss one.
This coming year will be full of challenges for me. Hard ones, some to the extreme and some will be new and exciting. I will be looking for some advise and friendly support to make it through them.
Tonight I will be working on my resolutions. I will be listing them on Listology and then seeing how many I have or have not accomplished. Hopefully more than last year.
I signed up for unemployment today. Here in Spokane it is all done online. We also went out in the frigid cold and did our grocery shopping. Very slippy and slidey out on the roads today. We received 2 movies from Netflix. We still have Robin Hood with Russell Crowe to watch from last week. Did some tv watching, mostly shows that were DVR'd. Episodes of Gene Simmons Family Jewels and Full Throttle.
Thank you Vikki and Linda for your comments. You both have become so special to me.

Day 360

A very quiet day after Christmas for us. Jerry left for Seattle this morning. Sending out safe driving wishes, especially over the passes. We will miss you Jerry, see you next time you pass through.
Made brunch for us and Chris. After that, absolutely nothing accomplished.
I took a long winter's nap this afternoon. I woke to cold rain outside. A definite determent to going anywhere. Maybe tomorrow I will be more ambitious.

Day 359 Christmas Day

It was a nice quiet Christmas Day. Feeling pretty good today. We made a few decisions of where we are heading these coming few months and feel good about that too.
We got out of the house because the sun was shining and for once not snowing. Dropped off the car payment and then drove out by Green Bluff and found the view to be a winter wonderland. The wheat fields are blanketed with snow and you could see the deer and other critters tracks in the snow. So pretty in the bright sun. We even saw a temperature sign in town that read 50 degrees. But more snow on the way for Monday. So better enjoy it while we can.
Enjoyed talking with Carol and then later DK. I will call Steve and Althea tonight.
I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. I am ready to kick 2010 to the curb and move forward to 2011. It will be a bumpy year for us, but, I think we are strong enough to ride the bumps and land on our feet again.

Day 358

Happy Christmas Eve!!!
We went to the Yuppy Puppy and had the pups groomed. From there we ventured south and bought the Tamales for dinner.
Drove out and looked at two rental places that were advertised. We liked them both. So we will set up appointments to actually take tours. Not done looking, we want to find the perfect place.
Came home from picking up the dogs and had, oh yeah you guessed it, tamales. Took a nice long nap.
It will be a quiet Christmas Eve for us. Nice!

Day 355 Happy Yule

The sun is returning to us and the days will now grow longer each day. Michael set up the tree for me and I decorated it with all our collected favorite ornaments.
Our garage door broke and they cannot come to fix it until tomorrow. Good thing I had not planned on getting out and going anywhere.
The doctor's office called and cancelled the appointment for tomorrow.
Dora, it is wonderful that you knew what this picture represented. Sending you many blessings for Yule and the year forward.

Day 352

Had so many errands planned to do this morning, but, it started snowing and sticking earlier than forecasted. So I will need to put them off till when I can drive the 4x4. There are accidents all over town. Michael said roads are very icy. So I can spend the day getting the sport ready for the tree and packing up some stuff.

Day 350

I accomplished the first step in the moving process. I actually got out of the house today and went and rented the storage unit. Now we can start boxing up stuff, donating and throwing away. I think I will start with the closets first.
I need to finish my holiday cards. I got some done and mailed. Tomorrow I will venture out and buy stamps and return books to the library. All before it starts snowing again.

Day 349

Went to the doctor's office... good news - still in rythym!!

Day 347

Tagged along with Michael to his early appointment at Inland Imaging. That was 2 hours.
Next stop was to buy me some new shoes at Rizzuto's Wide Shoes. Seems none of my shoes, except my snowboots fit anymore. I bought some nice New Balance walking shoes. Thanks Karen for your excellent customer service.
Our next and last stop was at Costco. I actually walked the whole store - front to back. Maybe my foot is getting a little better.
When we got home we watched the movie Date Night. It was pretty funny. Tina Fey is the bomb! We gave it 4 stars.
Chris came over for dinner and I made hamburgers. You cannot beat fresh Costco hamburger. It's the best!

Day 345

Still in rythym. I think I overdid it today. Tomorrow will be better because Michael will be home all day!

Day 344

The cardioversion was a success. My heart is back in rythym. Now the trick is to keep it that way.

Day 341

Calling for a rain/snow mix for this afternoon. I'm hoping for rain to wash some of this snow berm away.
I went to the foot doctor today. I liked him. He fitted me with a heel cup and took xrays. No bone spur or any abnomalties, Just two large fissures where the skin split. He gave me a script for a new cream. He also gave me a script for my legs, but, because of the other medicine I'm taking I cannot take his prescribed pills. Darn!
Tomorrow is my protime and ekg. Then today I scheduled my 4th cardioversion for Thursday.

Day 337

Another day of absolutely nothing to report of any importance.
Did receive my refund for my 401K balance. Worked out a $100.00 credit that is due us from one of Michael's doctors.
Dexter season 4 was put back in our "saved" list because something was wrong with the dics. Bummer. They shipped Sorceror's Apprentice.
Started checking on storage units...

Day 336

Michael got up early and picked up my medicine. The side streets are still really bad. Lots of people getting stuck. The plows came by and left huge boulders of snow across the entrance to our street. Impossible for small cars to maneuver through. I even seen pick up trucks getting stuck. And it's not even winter yet.

Day 335

Seemed like the whole day I moved in slow motion. I finally did get ready for Michael to pick me up to go to the doctors. The rate showed good so I can start the new medicine before performing the new procedure - Next Thursday.
The side streets are so bad with ice and slush we will pick up the medicine tomorrow.
I watched the new show Storage Wars on A&E and then went to bed early.
