I slept well last night. Missy and I got up about 5:30 and I got myself dressed and ready for the day and fed myself and Missy.
Bob will pick me up for exercise class this morning around 8:45.
Afterward, he and Joanne will leave for Bartlesville and I will pick up Karan
to go to Bartlesville too. I have an appointment at 1:30 with Dr. Eslicker, my
dermatologist. But before that, Karan and I will eat at
McCalister's. At 10:00 we will shop the sales at Christopher and Banks as
soon as they open. There will probably be nothing left in my size. Joplin had
nothing I wanted and they are a much larger store. But we will look
On my way home, I want to stop at Peck's and buy some hamburger patties. The
last time I stopped there, they were closed for lunch.
It supposed to be a relatively warm day with temperatures around 57 degrees and
then later in the week we are to have some colder weather and perhaps some rain
or light snow. By Friday, it is to be down to 31 degrees. I wish the weather
would stabilize and be one thing or the other.
I have a dental appointment tomorrow at 9:00. It's been awhile. The last time I
had an appointment, I had to cancel.
I got my social security today with my huge $2.00 a month raise. The cost
of living continues to go up but we seldom get a cost of living raise. That's
because Congress has raided money from the social security "trust
fund" to pay for war. They say it's running out of funds because
people are living longer now but that's stupid. If we consider the millions of
folks who die before they collect a penny after having paid into it all their
working lives as well as their employers contributions, there should be plenty.
I paid into the fund and so did my employers for fifty years and yet when Bob
died, I lost mine and only get his. So they should be money ahead. Congress
needs to stop raiding the fund.
This sounds interesting!
"Five hundred years after the Reformation of
1517, Christianity is once again in crisis. In failing to adapt to advances in
our thinking and spiritual perspectives, it has clung to outdated concepts and
has tenaciously defended dogmas formed before major advances in human thought
had occurred. For John Shelby Spong, the creeds have become simply
unbelievable. In this, his final book, Spong outlines twelve “theses” to help
today’s believers contemplate and reshape their faith at a far deeper level.
“If you choose just one book of John Shelby Spong’s, then choose Unbelievable….
Here is something different that asks us to think deeply, ‘live fully, love
wastefully, and be all that we can be.’”
I may buy that book. I am obviously a
I picked up Karan at 10:00 right after exercise
class. We went to the mall first and Karan bought several things. I bought a
We went on to McCalister's and had a very good
Then we went to TJ Maxx and I found a coat for the
cruise. It was on sale for $49.95. Karan bought some three pound weights
for the exercise class.
The went on to the doctor's office. he said
he found a pre-cancerous growth in my left ear and shot it with a freeze. I
personally did not see a thing there but then it was my left ear. I have no
eyes near the ear. :)
Then we went to the furniture store and to Walmart. Karan is looking for a game
table for her living room. She does jigsaw puzzles all winter and wants a table
she can leave up year around. She found a large selection of Jigsaw puzzles at
Walmart and bought several.
Then we stopped on
our way out of town and I bought hamburger patties so Bob and I will have
hamburgers and french fries on Friday.
When I got home I
swept up some more leaves and took my purchases into the house.
Bob came over at 5:00 and stayed for the news. He left just after 6:00 and I took my bath and put my PJs on and tried to find something to watch on Amazon. Most of that was violence so Missy and I went to bed at 8:30.
