Outside My Window....
The Sky is gray and rainy. We were supposed to get freezing
rain but I don't think we are getting that. It has been actually
a warm 40 degrees lately.
I am Thinking.....
About our new van... Yesterday we finally picked it up!
It is a 2001 Dodge Caravan such an upgrade from our old
beat up van and just in the nick of time too. Since I am sure
the transmission is going out in our old blue van. I won't be sorry
one bit to see it rest in the neighborhood junk yard.
Last week several of us had that nasty stomach bug going
around. So glad that that is gone and out of the way.
I havedeveloped a nasty cold sore . I used to get these much more than
I do now. I "out grew the frequent outbreaks." This one is a terrible
one though. My bottom lip is soo swollen. Sunday Sweet pea is to
be baptised and I will be standing before all with this horrible sore.
Hopefully it will be smaller by then.
Daddy has been stable this entire week. He had an appointment
last night and had to be given a little insulin but other than that
he is progressing along. He has to go today and refill his prescriptions
and later go for more bloodwork. The good news is that he
doesn't have to visit the dr. now until May. So that means no more
monthly visits. He is however still off work. I guess that also means
we will be on unemployment until May..
