She Devil relaxing outside on a sunny day after her "hair cut"
Doing a blood oxygen test is a bit like sleeping with a mousetrap on your finger.  I'm what you might call an "active" sleeper (Left Brain calls me Flipper) but the test gizmo thingee stayed securely on during the night.  I can't say the same for the sheets.

The well will be cleaned this morning, which means no water for 24 hours, so I scurried to get laundry done, dishes, etc.  I may end up showering at the neighbors if necessary.

I'm hoping to get in a walk with my neighbor (however, it's starting to look like rain now) before running my sundry errands.  The carpet cleaner needs to get back to my son, the credit card machine goes back to the bank, the sleep thing to the clinic, the prescription to Walmart and then I'll have a relaxing lunch somewhere before heading to the car dealership. 

It's time to turn over the Saturn and take possession of the new Honda CRV.  I still can't figure out my android phone, I'm not sure how I'll remember all the bells and whistles on this vehicle.

If I can figure out how to drive the new car I'll head over to the eye doctor to verify the exam he did late last year is indeed correct after clearing up the dry eye issue.  Once that's done, I need to find some new glasses for my new life.  So many choices lately - so much money being spent!

Then to wrap up the evening I have my garden club meeting and will take photos of the floral arrangements we're doing.

I wish I could say tomorrow is quieter, but my uncle died so there's a funeral.  My daughter is coming down with a sleeping bag (no bedding on the beds) to finish going through photos and I will sneak off for a hair cut.

Thank goodness for the Sabbath on Saturday...a day I know I will be able to sit quietly and calmly and reflect.

So, I'm going to make a break for it now because once my feet hit the ground I won't be stopping until late tonight and I don't want to wait to post this then.  Wish me luck!

Long Live the Queen of Speed Living


  1. I'd say, "pace yourself", Cheryl, but I can tell that's not going to happen. When do you get to take a breath, when you're living in your new RV in the RV park? Doesn't that sound simple and wonderful? Onward and upward!

  2. Wow, your plate is certainly full. Stop and breathe every now and then, and you'll do just fine. The first time you drive a new car home is very exciting, so enjoy!! Any day now, you'll be taking off on your new journey. Hard to believe that you're almost there, huh? You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
