No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"A discovery is said to be an accident meeting a prepared mind." - Albert Szent-Gyorgyi

This is what happens when I don't show up to write every day, I don't write. I am not even writing in my hard copy journal either. To say the least, it has been a taxing week.

Monday: Michael's court appearance for writing checks with NSF. He has been given 30 days to pay the remainder of the balance and will negotiate the DA fees. We appeared at 8:30 a.m. and left the courtroom at 11:45 a.m. The rest of our day was spent napping both of us were worn out. Of course, the day was sunny and warm.

Tuesday: I feel like I have been hit by a Peterbuilt truck. I miss the Tuesday food bank. My day is spent reading and napping. There is another day in paradise of warm temperatures and sunshine.

Wednesday: I do get up and make the food bank. New changes for the year as the staff follow federal guidelines in handling foods. I did come home with lots of goodies though. Between getting my number in line and acquiring my provisions, I go to the pathology lab for a blood draw for tests for my appointment with my PCP Thursday afternoon. The phlebotomist was good, no bruises on my arm. My afternoon is spent napping and reading. I still feel tired.

Thursday: I still feel drained. I spend my morning playing computer solitaire. Michael prepares me a hearty lunch and then off we go to SLO-town. At my PCP appointment, I find my weight has gone up a couple of pounds. From the blood draw I learn my glucose number is 100 over what it should be. I am told this is not good and I am given samples of a new medication to take in addition to the Metformin. Also between the weight and the high glucose is a cause for my lethargy and depression. My PCP looked over my psych meds and said that none of them are behind my diabetes. This is good to know.

After the PCP appointment I go to United Blood Services to donate blood my first of the new year. I have O negative blood and the vampires just love me. Besides I have a solid chunk of time to read my book and then I get yummy snacks when I am done. It is the least I can do for my community. Once again, the tech that set me up did a good job in needle insertion and I came away with no bruises. Although, later that evening my arm felt sore and Michael prepared me a zip lock bag with some ice in it and I applied that to the needle site and the coolness helped. Even though I had been well hydrated and had eaten well through the day, I felt tired and slept from about 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thankfully I was able to go to bed at a normal time and went to sleep.

Friday: A morning to myself and more solitaire. Only today I check my facebook page and make comments to my various friends. It is my meeting night. To think I have only two more Fridays and I will have completed three months of service to my home group. My how the time has flown. I hadn't planned on staying for the meeting because I didn't feel well but I did and I was glad I did. Once home, I greeted at the door with the smells of dinner. I have such a good husband.

Today: I feel tired. Bailey was a pest this morning because he wanted company and food. He and I both have been watching the birds coming to feed. We saw two new birds this morning. One had shades of red on his head and neck and another had bright yellow feathers on his head and his breast. I will have to go look them up in a bird book to see who is coming to visit. I suspect both are from the fench family.

I have some priority things to do and must close. I hope everyone has a grand weekend.
