My hand surgeon scheduled surgery for Jan 15, it is outpatient and done under just local.

Not much else is new.

Good morning
Near 50 and sunny ... as Maggie says, we're in for some winter temps again.

The insurance issue may not be sorted. Haven't had any word ... DH is now gettting some buck passing. So he has calls to make today.

Finished my last framing project, Yay! Need to put away some Christmas tree lights and pack up the boxes ...

Last night's dinner ended up being pizza ... so chili is on for tonight ;)

Rinty ... that bug sounds like what DH had. Hope all will be well in a day or so.
Maggie, you do what is best for you to reach closure ...
So it was YOU ;) Still fever and chills. So sorry re your healthcare (((hugs))))

Good Afternoon Everyone,

It's been a lazy day, but a beautiful one. We have had some nice temperature days, but are being warned that cold weather is back in the picture for us. I am trying to take a different attitude about the weather, just roll with the flow and enjoy being in my comfortable house.

I am hostess for a luncheon meeting next month for 18 ladies and I have started planning my menu and thinking about decorations. That should keep me busy getting the house in shining order and cooking. My friend has a new cleaning lady that she loves and who knows I may have her come in and do the house and I can get outside stuff like window washing and cleaning the leaves out of my front flower beds again.

Mr. B and I are planning on going to Gatlinburg the first week in March to a beautiful condo so I have that to look forward to. I have decided with him that I will take things as they are and just enjoy him. When I really face reality I have to admit to myself that I honestly don't want to remarry and the longer I am single the better I like it. It does get lonely sometime, but there is something to be said for not having to think about another persons needs and wants. I can keep the temperature where I want it, don't have to consider another persons likes and dislikes of food, can sleep or stay awake at my leisure and come and go as I please. This sounds selfish, but it's very nice to not have to worry about anyone but myself for a change. The daughter has become a non-issue in my head as I really don't care what she does or doesn't think about me. He will have to deal with her if she becomes a problem for him. I don't believe she has the gumption to tell him not to see me for he enjoys my company to much to let her go that far. I don't think she would want her money cut off and she might not know if he would be as generous with her if she started giving him orders. He doesn't have much of a temper, but that might get his attention. LOL

Well I am getting ready to make a master list of all the household improvements I want to work on this year. Tomorrow, I plan to spend the day in my office getting it in tip-top shape and shredding things I no longer need. That is my plan anyway.
I have 3 more doctor appointments for the month of January and then I will be finished for awhile. Ear doctor, dentist, and just a routine with vascular Dr. I have been diagnosed with a 50% blockage in my carthroid glands, but it will be treated with a blood thinner instead of surgery.

Essential oils burning and soup on the stove, it's a good day.

I am at home having been throwing up since Sunday night, a good ole D and V bug with a temp over 100, NO idea where it came from.

Embarrassing ringing up sick and I won't have a great rest of the week as I haven't been able to keep my UC meds down. Good Times !!!

DH is off doing granddad duty and I intend to wash the sweat stinking bedding I have been marinating in. As a final touch the dog threw up next to the bed this morning. Dh, bless him, has steam cleaned the carpet whilst I got up. But still unwell so back to curl up .

Maggie, hugs you do what is right for you.
Rinty hope you are feeling better soon. (hug), Janet Alliesmama

Good evening all,

LittleMiss reading your post makes me wonder if you have been playing in the playground of my mind!
The way you feel about Mr B and feel about your time and space is me to a T!!!!
I don't want to be responsible for anyone else either, I love my alone time.

I have also been heavy into the list making, this is the year I am changing out the mantel and some of the décor in the sunroom. I have faux Kentucky drystacked stone to put up the fireplace and this is the year it is going to get done. I am bad about dithering around making the decision to get thing started so they can get done. I confess it is the prospect of the mess and having to get it cleaned up after the project is done. I have only owned the stone for 2 years....sigh.

Made chicken and homemade noodles for supper, fresh green beans, mashed potatoes, salad and dads cucumber onion refridge pickle stuff. It was good! but of course made too much, will be sending it to DD to use up. Son in law was here a good part of the day, cleaning up sticks and burned off a brush pile. Looks so much better.
I had him take down 2 scraggly pine tree that were damaged by the wind.

Off to read, take a hot soaking bath and veg out.

Kitty, I just can't give him up. We are almost like two peas in a pod, we think so much alike. He said to me tonight, "I don't know of anyone ever in my life that I get along with as well as I do you, but I am so afraid that would change if we married". He loved his wife, but just from conversation I think she was one controlling human being and he married her at 17. He's enjoying his freedom also and since that is the only person he was ever married to, he can't believe it would be different.

I can't argue with him about changing, I don't think it would, but it could and this time is so good too. How long have you and your fiance been engaged? You do sound like you are on the fence about making that final commitment too.

I honestly believe that most woman do remarry for security sometimes. That at least is what I hear when I listen to my friends conversations, it's more about money than it is about being deeply in love with someone. This shocked me at first because I was so in love with my DH and we married when both of us had nothing but our love for each other. I am financially secure and eventho I never had to jump through hoops with DH about what I spent money for, not having to report to anyone is absolutely heaven now. In our lifetime we had some disagreements on what one wanted and the other didn't and now I am blessed to not have that problem. If I want to change something it's my decision.

I ate the last of my Fried Apples tonight and I thought about you. They are divine, so thanks for the recipe. Cracker Barrel has nothing on your recipe.
