I'm pooped out...

Goodness I'm still tired. My son flew back home on Monday and I slept for days after he left. We had a great time while he was here. I ended up cooking quite a bit though. I knew I would. The whole family got together the Sunday after Thanksgiving. It was a great day. So nice to see everyone and plenty of great food to be had.

I went to the dentist on Thursday. Had my upper jawbone scraped and shaped. I look like someone punched me in the mouth. I'm all swollen and bruised. Got some good pain meds though. I'll have the stitches removed next week. Then have to have time to heal then start the fitting process for my dentures. I'll be so happy to get them. It wil be nice to be able to chew once again.

I was suppose to see the hematologist yesterday. But my truck broke down on the way there. So it's in the shop. I'll have to reschedule with the doc. I'm wondering if my iron is low once again---hence being so tired all the time.

I've picked up crocheting once again. I made a scarf for my sister. Am now working on a scarf for my mom. It's a pretty pattern I found on a skein of Simply Soft yarn. Speaking of Simply Soft yarn.....have y'all seen the new Eco skeins? They are made from recycled plastic. I never would have known if I hadn't read it on the wrapper. So to all those knitters and crocheters out there try the Eco thread and help keep some platic out of our landfills. Do your small part to save the environment.

That's it for now......

A big shout out goes to Adam AKA Diet King.....long time no see my friend. Thanks for stopping by.

The rest of y'all head over and check out Adams blog. He's got some great things to say.

Tell President-elect Obama to Make Healthcare Reform a Key Priority

As he prepares to take office, President-elect Barack Obama faces many pressing issues. Although his campaign identified healthcare reform as a key priority, some will urge him to defer such efforts, suggesting that it will be too costly, too difficult, or not a sufficiently high priority. And while we concur that the nation’s economic health demands critical attention, our economic problems make reform even more urgent because of their impact on people’s health and well-being and the alarming extent to which people can no longer afford needed care.

Click here to send a digital postcard to President-elect Obama and tell him that you want him to make healthcare reform a top priority in 2009.

Prevent Medicaid Cuts When Many Americans Need It Most!
