This is the message of Christmas: We are never alone.

Taylor Caldwell

Good morning everyone. Looks like we are in for another nice day. Today I am off to the Kings Plaza Mall to take advantage of the sales. 60 percent off in Old Navy, and I still have my sons to buy for.  I'm not much for crowds so I am hoping that, being a Wednesday, it won't be so bad. It's easy to get there. Only one bus. But it is a long journey so I'll have some reading material on hand.

My back has been bothering me the past few days, but is somewhat better today so, so with an arthritis aspirin, I should be okay. Realized last night that this is a fibro flare going on. Pain in my knees, shoulder, and wrists along with my back. In my case, it feels better when I keep moving. Maybe that is because I'm spending time focusing on the pain. Besides, Ralph finally remembered to get me the small cart that I can take on the bus. So, I'll be okay.
I've got some homework to take care of for an online class. I enrolled in a math class yesterday, took the pre-test and promptly dis-enrolled after the second question. How did I ever pass math in the first place? Also looked into enrolling into a Holistic Health and Healing course for certification. That's been a dream of mine for years, but I'm not sure I can afford it. All depends on what kind of break in fees they can give me.
I'm in need of a jacket.  Since I lost over 43 pounds, my coats are hanging off me.  They are all 3X.  I wasn't planning on getting one until I reached my goal, but I've been feeling funny going out with my coats hanging off me.  Hubby, trying to make me feel better, said this is the way they wear their clothes, the bigger the better.  My response, "Yeah, but I am not a teenager anymore."  So I ordered a nice red jacket through Amazon. Couldn't resist.  It was 73 percent off.  Well, they ended up sending me a vest instead.  I complained and they told me to send it back and they will send me the correct item.  Guess what????  They sent me ANOTHER vest.  Boy am I furious and I told them so.  Told them they'll get these vests back and cancel the order altogether.  
Have a good one.  Talk to you all tomorrow.


  1. Sorry to hear Amazon screwed up your order -- what the hell? Is the Christmas rush getting to them?

  2. How frustrating on the Amazon front.
    And why are we so slow to recognise a flare-up? I hope yours settles. Soon.

  3. I hope your flare up ends soon, Mary. Thinking of you and sending healing vibes!

    And geez.. what's up with Amazon??

  4. I sure hope the pain in your back Mary goes away, for it has no business being in my good friend like you.

    As for what happened with being sent the wrong item if that happened to me I'd be furious, that's terrible, and above all, having it happen twice.
