To Do List


(1) Saw the doctor as my own (new)BP machine was scaring the hell out of me. It scared him too. He added another pill to my expanding pharmaceutical shelf. If you knew me well you'd find this absolutely hilarious. I've had a war going with Big Pharma for, like, most of my life. Bellicose was my stance.

(2) I had a wonderful couple of days alone with my beloved Grandgirl. Now she's gone to her mum's and they are spending one-on-one days together and are coming back here on Xmas Day and then Grandgirl leaves on Boxing Day. Far too short a time for this grandmother. But my, at 21 she's such a very interesting person and truly kind and beautiful. I can hardly wait to see her in her future plans which truly encompass the world.

(3) I wrote to the husband of my BFF, a task I had long put off. What to say? But the words came and flowed. I was ready.

(4)Plan Writers' Workshop outlines starting January 4th.

(5)Rehearse the 2 person play, opening sometime in February.

(6)Finish editing the anthology that came out of the last series of workshops.

(7)Knit a bit

(8)Buy a yoga mat

(9)Plan beginning of training for Tely 10 2016. Can I do it? Sez I to Doc. Why not? Sez Doc, but train slowly and work your way towards it.

(10)Defrost turkey.

  1. Do you have my email address? I'd like to talk to you re your BP meds, that's kind of my area, or was. The combo to use is sometimes tricky.

  2. so pleased about your granddaughter's visit. I know well
    the joy they bring us
    The shelf I have for medications seems to be growing also
    and this one not long ago - took nothing - did not believe in it. Yes - get the yoga mat - the stretches so good for you. I do not feel like it many mornings but make myself
    and feel better after.
    My list is long also....
    Take care of yourself.

    1. You inspire me with the yoga mat Ernestine. A good start for this whipped and tired body. I need to find a good place to set it up.

  6. Having just recovered from a prolonged indisposition with many pills to cure and to handle side effects, I can sympathise. I am also expecting visitors later today. My sister, her son and daughter in law and two delightful granddaughters. They will spend Christmas with me and I will escort my sister to Mumbai to a cousin before returning on Sunday. Our lives seem to run on parallel lines!

    1. Synchronicity my friend. I hop you are now sorted pill wise. A blogger friend is helping me with mine. He is a cardiovascular specialist. I'm still not out of the woods with regard to reactions 😞. Drat.

      Enjoy sister & grandniece time ☺

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
