Where Did I Leave My Head?!

I’m physically feeling better than I was last week.  Thank goodness since we have the Relay for Life coming up on Friday. But my head is still fogged with all of this dreary weather.

Yesterday, it was cold, then it was hot.  I had a sweater on then I had a tee-shirt on then I needed a sweatshirt. 

I’m frustrating myself because I have so many things I need to accomplish, but I’m feeling stalled again.  I shouldn’t really complain.  I’ve been handling a lot of various insurance/paperwork/rebate things lately and I’ve actually kept up with them.  Got another prescription issue straightened out for Ralph yesterday.  He has no idea what his prescriptions are.  I take care of all that.  He often jokes that I could be poisoning him and he’d never know.  He just takes what I put in the cup! 😉

All these things on my mind may be why I woke up at 3:30 this morning.  I dutifully stayed in bed trying to convince myself I’d go back to sleep.  At 4:30, no dice, so I got up and started my day.  So I’ve been poking around at things on the computer trying to update some things.  It shall all be revealed sometime soon.

I’ve already finished my coffee and I’m contemplating making another pot.  Or I could talk about books.

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan

I finished Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See yesterday.  I liked it but it left me with a lot of questions.  It was set in the 1800’s when foot binding was still in fashion and the book made me wonder about many of the Chinese traditions.  Perhaps something I can research at some point.  Interesting though.

I’m now reading Blue Diary by Alice Hoffman.

Blue Diary

So far so good.  I’ve really enjoyed the last several books of hers that I’ve read.  We’ll see how this one goes.  Do I dare tell you that I bought 2 books at the library AND 2 books at Goodwill yesterday?  Ok, I didn’t tell you.  If I didn’t take a picture of them, they don’t exist. 😉

More paperwork in my future today.  I have this nagging feeling that there’s a bill I’ve forgotten to pay.  Can I find the bill?  Of course not!  That’s why I have a bunch of things to go through.  The good thing is I’ll be able to shred things I don’t need as I go.  There’s a positive to everything!

It’s dreary again, and I want it to stop!!!! That’s why I’m so disoriented!

Happy Tuesday!!

    • Thanks, Cathy. The rain is still coming down. Ralph and I are off on a short road trip to handle some business then I think there is Lunch in my future! I think I’m going to try to start meditating tonight (it’s been Too long) That should help!

  4. Thanks for sharing these books, I am looking for something to read and I will check them!

    • Hope you enjoy Catalina. I’m always talking about books. You can click on the Goodreads symbol on the sidebar and you can see other books I’ve read. Goodreads is great for tracking my books and for finding new ones. If you join let me know or just send me a friend request!

  5. I love what you said about there being a positive for everything! What a great way to look at chores and things that I’m really not all that excited to do. 🙂

    I think I’ve read Blue Diary. I’ll have to check my list and find out.

    I hope the weather’s good for the race.

    • I hope the weather is good too, Dana. It poured last year and it was sad and uncomfortable. We’re used to dealing with the sad but when it’s cold and miserable, there’s just no way to get around it. Blue diary is pretty good so far. We’ll see. I try to find something positive in most things. Doesn’t always work, though! 😉

  6. I hope whatever’s on your mind is sorted soon – and that you get some sunshine! We’ve got some today but it’s not looking good for the rest of the week 😦
    The relay sounds great; here, it’s the Race For Life in aid of breast cancer research and so many people do it – mine’s next month and I’m really looking forward to it. I like the if I don’t photograph them I didn’t buy them theory, might use that one!
