Turning Over a New Leaf

I promised no more snowmen and I am sad to have done so, but a promise is a promise. I will tell you that at least one of them, in their own pathetic way, made me smile this afternoon. The Red Hat Lady has quite the weight loss program... and a couple of the others succumbed to fatigue and were found slumped over their steering wheels... I've stolen their apparel leaving them stark naked in their vehicles. A cruel and heartless joke. (ha ha!)

I won't have much time for snowmen after this week. I'm turning over a new leaf, taking a break from my childishness, and shall try out being an adult for a few weeks. (I'll let you know how it turns out... ) I'll be taking a class, perhaps earning a certificate, and maybe finding myself a job when it's all complete. It's happened rather quickly and I'm finding myself slightly staggered and a little bit stressed. The class starts early Monday morning and run for 5-6 weeks. It will mean not only rearranging my own schedule, but it also means I can't get Em onto the bus in the morning.

I'm scrambling a little bit to get some medical records together. I've been remiss in keeping up with things like physicals and scarcely know if I have a doctor anymore. Tracking down my immunization records is proving to be a little bit of a challenge... Perhaps there is a blessing in this as I will need to get all that back in order. Better to do it now ahead of desperately needing a doctor for an actual medical emergency.

Prayers are appreciated as I begin this new endeavor.


  1. Perhaps it is just as well you didn't post any snowman photos. You wouldn't have wanted to make them (or us!) blush at their lack of attire.
    Now you have us quite curious, and praying the very best for you with this upcoming venture!

    1. You are right, Joeks, we wouldn't want any red-faced snowmen gallivanting about. (Reminds me a little bit of that Veggie Tale Silly Song with Larry dressed in but a towel...)

      Yes, curious. (I'm taking a course at a nearby nursing home to get a CNA certificate.) And thank you for your prayers.

    2. It looks like they all slipped away under the cover of darkness. The cars are all empty, except for maybe a little pile of slush.
