It took me a while to get moving this morning....

....because it was so nice and cozy under the covers on this chilly day. Ahhhh.

But, I realized that I had a lot on my plate  and hadn't been posting for a few days so I decided to 'crawl' out of bed and get the day started!

For starters, I will be getting a new furnace and air conditioning unit first thing tomorrow morning. My antiquated system has had its last hurrah and needs to be replaced.  I have spent way too much money trying to keep it all running and it was time for a more efficient system. 

The bad news is that this will be quite costly....but, the good news is that by getting it before the end of the year I will qualify for a $1500 Federal tax credit.
Thank you, President Obama. : )

Oh yeah, when it rains it pours. 

My washing machine and dryer (also quite old!) both  need replacing.  I have to run the dryer several times before the clothing fully dries...and the washing machine is leaking and not functioning very well. (That kind of sounds like I feel some days...ha ha)

When all is said and done, I should be running a more efficient household.  Poorer, but, more efficient!

Maybe now you can understand my hesitancy to get out of bed this morning..... : )

I know that I need a life when I found myself getting irate over the Dancing With The Stars results show last night. 

Bristol Palin is in the finals....but, Brandy is not?

What is this world coming to?

Cardiologist follow-up appointment this afternoon.  I have my long list of questions ready to go.  I hope that the dr. is in a good mood!

I have to feel that drs. really appreciate a patient who asks a lot of questions.  To me that means that the person is taking care of their own health and becoming their own advocate. 

In this day and age, I truly believe that it is important....not to mention the importance when you are my age.
*groan*  : )

Speaking of age, you know that you are truly a senior citizen when the clerk doesn't flinch when  giving you the discount on Senior Day at the grocery store. 

Just once I would like for them to ask me to prove that I am over 60!

Thanksgiving is is one of my most favorite holidays.

Unfortunately, my kids won't be coming down this year.

Fortunately, Dave and I are heading to our dear friends home to share the holiday with their wonderful family....children and grandchildren!

Unfortunately, I won't have any leftovers.

Fortunately, I bought a little baby fresh turkey yesterday that I will stuff and make to have here at home!

Unfortunately, I will so miss getting to see my precious grandbabies.

Fortunately, I will be awaiting word on my newest grandbaby's arrival in the next couple of weeks!!! A brand new baby to love.....

I truly have so much to be thankful for.....

I do not watch Dancing with the Stars but it appears to be more of a popularity contest rather than a talent contest.

I was so angry....I even said on fb a nasty word, but, I wanted Brandy and Jennifer to be the final two. They are the best and have improved leaps and bounds over Bristol......
