Every Day

My Day on Tuesday

We woke up to 10.7 inches of snow yesterday morning. But it continued to snow. We ended up with 11.5 inches. Here is a quick picture I took through a screen on our breakfast room window.

Hubby started his day off snow blowing the driveway because we had our yearly cardiologist appointments at 8:40 am. Our cardiology office had moved and is quite a distance from us now- about a 28 mile round trip. The traffic was horrid. It took us 25 minutes to go a half mile after we turned out of our subdivision. It took us an hour to get to the doctor’s office. It was the doctor’s first day in the new office so it was a learning curve for him with the new computer system. He said we were his first patients. We never got home until 11:15am. We both had good appointments and don’t have to go back for a year. The doctor was thrilled with my 50 lb. weight loss and took me off a medication which really made my day.

We did make a quick stop at CVS in another town on the way home. I was happy to get four large cans of the Abound Mixed nuts(no peanuts) for our Thanksgiving and Christmas party mix. They had the best price on these mixed nuts. They were $ 8.99 each for over a pound can.

We had not eaten breakfast before we left so we were both starving. I made us bacon, eggs, and some avocado for lunch. Hubby is now on my diet. I am giving away anything that he can’t eat. 

After doing the dishes, I went outside and shoveled the front porch which Hubby can’t do with the snowblower. It is bitter cold out and getting colder. Winter came in with a vengeance. 

In the afternoon, I did some cleaning, got the mail, and did some reading.

After getting a burst of energy, I organized my greeting cards. I used to keep them in file folders in a large file box. It was bulky, heavy, and I had to dig way down in to find anything. It just wasn’t working. 

So I purchased a greeting card box and organized it. 

It is going to be much easier to use. Everything is in there and there is room to expand. I am delighted with it. Little projects make me happy! So I will be doing a lot of them over the winter. 

Last night we watched some shows on TV which is something I have not done in months. Then it was early to bed since we got up so early. 

I hope you all had a good Tuesday.

We only received 3 inches, but that was enough for me, especially this early in the season. Congratulations on your weight loss, that's an impressive accomplishment!! Do you notice a difference in your energy level? You seem to get a lot done.

Hi Deb,

My energy level has risen to almost what it was in my 40's. I believe two things have done that: losing all that weight and not being in the incredible pain that I was for 4 years with the hiatal hernia. I credit my incredible surgeon for the terrific repair that he did. The man is a miracle worker. I have had none of the side effects of a hiatal hernia repair.It's just amazing.

I really like your card box–that's exactly what I need to hold all of my different cards that are scattered in places all over our house! Going to steal your idea and make one for us. Penny S.

Hi AD, this is Chris. I have a box like you have for my cards for awhile now and it is very convenient. You will love having it.

I am so proud of you and pleased for you that you have lost 50 lb and are off another of your medicines. You have lost about the same as I have since '13. I am happy for both of us. <3
