After a few days of not pacing myself, my Fibro is screaming at me and I feel like a cement truck has ran me over again. A couple of days rest and I should bounce back again (hopefully), and with a couple of good nights sleep for Rob I am hoping he also bounces back from his exhaustion.
A Year ago today was when the Blizzard hit us. I have to say this Year has been nothing near in comparison to 2013-2014, so we should count our blessings on that point.
This morning I had an Ultra Sound appointment at 8:45 am at the Wiarton Hospital. I got into it just before 10 am. I was happy that I had ran into Rob's Cousin, Joyce, there as that passed some of the time quite pleasantly for me. The technician had been busier with the first appointment longer then thought then there had been phone calls she had also to deal with before she could take me. Sometimes these things happen, even though you have an appointment.
I must say though I do miss our previous Ultra Sound Technician, even thought this one is very nice, I suppose we had been very content with the other one until she took retirement. Such is life and forward with go, but still it is nice to know when we are very much appreciated at our jobs.
By the time I stopped to get a much needed coffee at Timmies, into the Bank, Drug Store and Grocery Store, it was 11 am when I returned home. There were 4 Aussies anxiously needing my attention. That took time getting them all looked after before I took the time out for myself to even think about making myself a toasted bagel for breakfast/lunch.
Believe it or not the afternoon flew by and I am sure I did nothing much more then push some Crabby Cabbie paperwork, make the bed, do up a few dishes, fill the wood stoves a couple of times, have the Aussies out more times then naught, and got things ready for our Dinner.
To date the people who have joined me in this Year's 52 Week Money Challenge, that you may learn more about by *clicking* on the chart on the right sidebar of my blog, are a count of 10 as follow:
Marilyn, Sugar Mama, Barry & Alice, Christy, Kaeli, Wanda, Joyce, Shannon, and Eleanor.
I am happy to have company along again for this Year's Challenge, my third year in a row to do this. It will be exciting to see what everyone is saving for or ends up getting at the end of this Year. All the Best to everyone.
We will only be into Week 2 = $2.00 to put away this week, so lots of time should anyone still want to join us. You can do the challenge anyway you like, as Christy is working backwards starting at Week 52 - $52.00. Whatever works to give you the end result of $1,378.00 saved by Week 52, the last week of 2015, and that is a really nice feeling.
A peek at two of the Aussie babies that are still available for FOREVER HOMES:
They are on the move now their eyes have opened. I even caught one of them growling today, even though I couldn't tell which one. Cute, cute & more cute they are.
I am thinking this evening will be an early evening for me, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
