Tuesday Ramble

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative
decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions
when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient.
The storm will pass. The spring will come.

Good morning.  Not much to blog about today.  It's going to be a busy one, for sure.  The city has issued a snow alert for Wednesday so all Wednesday plans are now scheduled for today instead.  So, in the morning it's art class and afterwards a trip to the fruit stand. I've some special new healthy recipes to try.  Hubby keeps telling me not to go overboard with dinner, but with so much going on, I want to make sure this one is extra special.

I made an appointment with the eye doctor for December 10th.  I definitely need glasses, but the opthamologist can't write prescriptions so I have to see the optometrist. Time was when you had one eye doctor and one general practitioner.  Now there is a specialist for everything, and we're the ones who have to do all the running around.  My insurance will only cover one pair of glasses, so I am going for the ones to see in the distance.  I can get buy with my 99 cent reading glasses quite well. 

I also called and made an appointment with the social worker.  I definitely need someone to talk to.  I've got no family...and no close friends that I can confide in....and I just need to get it all out.  I know all of you are there for me, and I so count on you all for support, and for that I am so grateful.  You mean the world to me.

Well, time to get a move on.  I'm still debating if I want to stop at WW for my weigh in today instead of going out in the storm tomorrow.  I'm just going to play it by ear.  Have a good one.


  1. Go ahead and stop in today at WW. If the weather is really bad, you don't want to be out in it and take a chance of getting hurt. I wonder sometimes why we even have general practitioners. Mine always just refers me to a specialist nearly every time I go in. Have a great day today!

  2. I hope you had a good day, Mary. (It's almost 6 in the evening here.) I think it's a good idea for you to see a social worker. I did a few years ago when i was trying to deal with the change of moving across the country and away from all my family, (except husband,) and old friends. She helped me so much. It will be good for you to talk everything out, and you know she will be objective and really listen.
