Saturday morning

It’s chilly here but nothing like the rest of the country is experiencing. Still it was 39 when we started our walk. I’m off to the library and then I’m going to do a few errands in town. Almost all my Christmas shopping is done, but really we don’t have any family to buy for. I send my sister some homemade jams and a bottle of Downton abbey wine I found at World market. My brother I just give money to. And that’s grandparents, or other family. Kinda sad in some ways but that’s the way our family tree is. My sister has a lot of family as each of her 5 children have lots of kids( the catholic thing).

Dinner is a fondue as it was a free item and it’s dated today, so I’m getting some vegies and that’ll be dinner. Tonight is back to 16 mg of dex so tomorrow won’t be as much fun as we’ve had. We will see how my numbers are back on dex.
But that’s not till mid December before I know that.

We’ve got some big expenses coming up, including property taxes,house insurance, my sons dental surgery. So December will be a financial hit for sure.

Christmas shopping done!

I went out and bought 1 more gift card yesterday, and I need one more, then I’m officially done. Actually I’ve been done with my shopping  by dec 1 for most things, but there’s always a few things that linger. So except for some groceries , it’s done.

im feeling very blocked with my minimalism attempts. I’ve gotten rid if tons of stuff, but somehow  I’d like to do even more. Not sure where to start. It’s really going another layer into it. It could be too with Christmas decorations up, things seem more busy…

I think next time I’m alone in the house, which is rare, I’ll walk around and see what areas bother me. I need clear surfaces, and things in there right place. I’ve looked at some e books on minimalism and none of them have really inspired me. Maybe I need a fresh approach. 

So, off to work today, first my walk in a few minutes. Today is day 202. I’m feeling pretty good. No aches or suspicious pain. I’m only half way thru my revlimid cycle. Then I’ll get my blood test the first week of January. I don’t think I’ll see a downward trend, but hopefully it’s not going up.
