Two day until my birthday.
Tuesday, August 09, 2011
Today was a good day, but it was long. I got enough sleep, but was tired all day. So glad I can drive my car. I feel bad for those unable to drive and that have to depend on others to get them around. I think for me the loss of freedom in just being able to go when I want to go, is what is hardest for me!! I am thankful for good friends when I am unable to drive. When I was so sick last year at this time, I depended on others to take me to the Emergency Room and pick me up, as I was just too sick to drive!! So many people helped me out and then when I had my gall bladder removed, again I needed rides. I am thankful that my sister lives close enough and could come up for that. It is nice to know I am able to depend on other when I must!! Even if I don't like it!!
This year I am not sick and I welcome my birthday!! I have already received 2 gifts. Yes, I opened them!! I no longer am required by others to wait!! I see no reason to wait until the official day. That way I can stretch it out longer!!
It will be a busy week. Birthday lunch at PLUK tomorrow. Lunch with Marie on Thursday and then the NAMI bike ride is on Saturday. I volunteer in the office on Friday and deliver food to the Molt Community Center on Saturday. I ordered a bountiful basket and have someone picking it up and sharing it with me. Paula will be in town on Friday for an eye exam. I have invited her to spend the night. We shall see if she does. I told her I would cook for us on Friday night. She is having her eyes dilated and doesn't want to go out to eat. I will call her tomorrow and see if she has made her plans yet and if I am cooking.
She likes salmon and that sounds good to me.
So, a busy week and I need to fit in some water aerobics this week. I rode the recumbent bike yesterday for 30 minutes. I hadn't exercise much last week since I didn't have my car. I did some stretching and a little yoga. Nothing aerobic! But my weight was good this morning...because I got enough sleep!!
Well, a storm has blown through and doesn't seem to be going to do much.
Have a great night!! Remember, it is what you make it, so make it great!!
