The Day After

Our Christmas dinner and gift exchange was a great success. Everything turned out well....including the food. Slinky spent the day outside because it was a nice mild day. I tried to put him out again this morning but he began barking to get back in. I let him back in and gave him his cinnamon toast. We will put him out today since it's supposed to get almost to 70 degrees. Then it's supposed to rain tomorrow and get cold again.

Scott went home last night. When he goes home early, he usually regrets it later. But he had a friend who spent Christmas alone over last evening so they probably watched a movie and enjoyed the company. Scott spends his visits with us on the cell phone talking to someone or the other. When he isn't on the cell phone he's on the computer.

We did go out to John and Leslie's to look at the house day before yesterday though.

Then yesterday I cooked all morning and cleaned up all afternoon. We did get over to see my sister in the nursing home though. I wonder if she will ever get to come home. I also wonder if the socket was so badly damaged that it cannot heal. The surgeon told me he removed a lot of splinters and that the ball was spongy. He replaced it. But he has not been very forthcoming with information.

I was exhausted last night and fell asleep in my chair and slept right through "This Old House". Bob woke me up to go to bed at 9:00.

My leg bothered me again last night. It's getting to be a regular every night occasion anymore. I took some aspirin and that usually takes care of it but it has not been working lately. I guess I need to make an appointment and see what's going on there.

Getting old is no fun.

Sounds like you had a good Christmas. My girls are always on the phone or the computer, too, Margie. Slinky is getting spoiled to staying in the house! Hope your leg gets better. You are so right, getting old is no fun.

Hi Margie,
I agree about growing old. My friend says, "Growing old is Pigeon Poop"
I was commenting on how things have changed down through the years with kids. Our Grandkids were all on a phone (texting) on their laptop or playing a hand held game. We talked about how we all got board games and laid on the floor playing our new games or putting a puzzle together. Life changes.
Hope you feel better soon.

So glad you had a good Christmas, Margie. I do hope that the doctor can determine the cause of your leg pain and that your leg feels better soon. Best wishes...
