I forgot to go and pick up the freshly cleaned cornet yesterday. Yup, I had a disappointed Acer around me. I did NOT forget again today. First thing I did when I went out was to go and get that cornet. They did a nice job cleaning it. It looks rather nice now and not so worn. I know he will be a happy camper when he gets home. Then my brake light came on saying my break fluid was low so I had to go and get that checked out. It was a little low but we shall see if that light comes on again. I hope not. There is only 13,000 or so miles on the little car. I got the rest of my errands done and came home.
Since I got up rather early, I tried to nap but for some strange reason I couldn't really sleep. It was very weird but hey, what can I say? Life is weird and so are my sleep habits.
I went to tea last night. Acer was so cute. He says that I have been hanging out with Star too much and I need to take a break. I think it was because I was going out and I wasn't going to get his cornet from the store. Either way, I had a nice evening with Star as usual. She is such a wonderful young woman. She would be in her biology class right now! Star is an English major at the University right near town.
I am thoroughly enjoying pulling out the clothes that I haven't been able to fit into since 2007, the pre-Lyrica and Amitryptiline days. I have on pink jeans, white long sleeve shirt, and the matching pink hoodie. It is a very cute outfit and I feel very cute in it, if you know what I mean. I am glad that Heather BT has been encouraging (okay - hiding the clothes she doesn't want me to wear) to care about what I wear and picking better clothing options. I have several pairs of these type jeans and actually, I need to get a belt as the waist is too big and it kind of falls down when I walk. I will do that tomorrow when I run my errands. I would go tonight but it is NCIS night and well, I don't think after teaching I will want to go especially as NCIS will be ready to come on. I love that show. NCIS LA will be on tonight too. I keep forgetting about Castle! I just remembered that I missed it last night! I also need to watch the finale of Project Runway online because I was in the hospital when it was on so I missed it. Thank goodness for online watching!
One of the sewing projects I will be immersing myself into will be a new pair of pajama bottoms as well, mine are ready to fall off me! It is exciting when that happens! First up with be the Christmas Ornaments for the students. I am just not sure what I want to make exactly this year. I have the material just not the design. I will be thinking and experimenting this week so I will have a good pattern to use when Star and I start to make them. Star is also an artist so she may have a good idea of what to make too. I had thought of making the ornaments in the shape of a bell or a mitten or a stocking. It really depends on how it works with the material that I have. I will be experimenting with all three. I may even start tonight during NCIS.
My big computer is now in the living/music room. I really like it in here. It has wifi so I have Internet connection in here. Maisy has a place where she can sit while I am on the computer if she wants to be in the room with me. She wanders in and out a lot so it is up to her. She also likes dark corners so she likes to be under the table too. Goofy little doggie. I just love her so much.
It is getting colder out so I had to go and find some socks to wear. I have been having trouble finding some because of the swelling in my feet, ankles, and legs. Socks dig into my skin and break open the skin. I have new socks now to try and they seem to fit okay so I am going to need to buy some more as I only have 2 pairs of these and that won't last long in this weather. I haven't worn socks since summer so it is kind of weird having the toes covered but they are at least warm, which they weren't earlier.
My neck ache and headache are a bit better today. I have the usual everyday headache plus a bit of the neck ache too. It is most definitely not the same amount of pain as it was when I was in the ER last week. I hope to never have to go through that again but now I know what it is so I can call and make an appointment with the doctor. I won't need to go to the ER for it. I hope I am done with the ER this year because I have been in the hospital 2 times so far this year and I would like to think I have had all the visits I am going to have. That is my hope anyway.
Well, my student has arrived and the call from the bank lady didn't happen so I am hoping that she will call soon because I need to set up another appointment if I can even modify this issue.
