One week closer to Thanksgiving…

Monday was a nice day, the weather looked nice outside but I didn't get a chance to go out. A friend of mine, Angie, was going to bring her kids and come to visit for a while and then we were going to walk over to the lagoon. They ended up not having a very good morning so they canceled. I was starting to get up and get dressed when the guys came in to take down the frame that they put up inside my door so I decided to wait. One guy left and said another guy was coming so I just decided I was going to go ahead and stay in bed. I was glad because I did get my massage this morning and I get to relax the rest of the day. Kelly came over and visited for a while. Kelly went home and lay some cookies, man they were good.

Tuesday was a beautiful day outside but unfortunately I was stuck in bed AGAIN, This is getting really old. It looks like they're going to finish my door tomorrow so that will be great. My new wine barrel furniture got here today and it looks awesome, I was hoping it was going to look good.

Wednesday was such a great day. After being stuck in bed for three days Robby and I were ready to get up and get out of here. I was getting ready to leave and Kelly texted me to see if I wanted to go to Cosco, I would never turn down Cosco. I asked Karen if she would like to go along that way it would be easier because usually I have a lot of stuff to get in so did Kelly. Kelly has been making S a green drink in the morning with kale, ginger… And a bunch of other stuff that's good for you. I really do feel good after I drink it. I let them load up the van and bring it back and lobby and I cruise back through town, of course I stopped at cost-plus because I love to look at everything that they have. We cruised Down Westcliff Drive and back, to the end of the wharf and back, to the end of the boardwalk and back and home. There were literally millions of pelicans, Seigels and see lions right along the shore on both sides of the wharf, and of course I didn't have my Google glass AGAIN. I swear I was going to start taking it everywhere I went but I really didn't want to take it to Costco. We cruised home and as I was sitting on my porch looking at my new furniture I noticed that two of the stools were taller, I bought four and they were supposed to be the same size. Just to make sure I had my mom measure them and then I took a picture of them side-by-side so that I could email the manufacture and see if I can exchange the shorter ones for taller ones. Rosa put me to bed and the gang came over to play cards, I started out with five dollars and ended up with one.

Thursday turned out to be a pretty good day although it was cold. The first time in a couple days that I haven't been bloated and feeling yucky. I got into Robby for a cruise through the Lagoon, past the light House and back, to the end of the wharf and back, to the end of the boardwalk and back and home. there were a lot of people working in my house yesterday so I didn't leave my glasses on the counter charging because there was a bunch of people working at my house, I had Karen put it away. Needless to say they were not charged so I couldn't take them with me this morning. I figured they had had enough time to charge so I came back to get them. I talked to Seth for a while and then I had him send Kelly over to put the Google glass on for me, I talked her into going for a cruise down to the wharf with me because she looked like she needed a break. We went down and we  were both amazed, I think there was twice as many birds today as there was yesterday. We took a bunch of pictures and then came home and I rested for a bit and Teresa came and put me to bed. We did some personal care and I got to take a nice long hot bath.

Friday was a pretty good day, a little colder than I would have liked but it was not as cold as the day before. After I got up and got everything done I just took Robby for a really long Crise, the usual cruise… I came back and Teresa and I decided to go have some Chinese food, I haven't had Chinese food for a time and it was pretty awesome. We went over to the beauty supply place to get some new shampoo and cream rinse, I like the brand of the one that I have but not the smell… That's what I get for buying it online. then we went over to cost-plus to look at the stuff that they have, airways have the most amazing stuff. Of course we both spent way too much but how could you say no? I know if we were to go back after Thanksgiving all of the stuff that we got would have been gone. We then went to OfficeMax and got some file folders and stuff we need to organize my drawers. Our last stop was Petsmart. Robbys Halti was about to fall apart so we got a new one, we also got some corn cob bedding for my mom and some bird treats. It was cold so we loaded up and came home, Teresa went to unload the van and noticed that nothing that we bought from Petsmart was there, Sometimes we get to talking and forget what we are doing. Teresa went back and luckily the cart with all of our stuff was still in the parking lot. Teresa put me to bed and then waxed my face and zapped my legs, I hope that keeps the hair away for a while.
Saturday I decided to stay in bed. The last couple of days were really cold and I'm just tired of being cold, I want to be in an environment that I can control and relax. Jinx came in and fed Robby and I and took care of a few things, I feel bad having her come in for just a couple of hours but I gave her the choice… She's so sweet. I had some leftover brown rice from the Chinese food yesterday so she made me some brown rice, kimchi and an egg. Tom and Kelly came over to say good morning and see how everything was going, I haven't seen them that much this week because they've been very busy. I have a nice surprise today. I ordered a hat from Shared Adventures, I organization that has huge events for disabled and other people. The guy that started it, Foster, stop by to bring me my hat. I was cruising along the wharf yesterday and he stopped to say hello and asked me where I live and said he wanted to bring my hat by. Unfortunately I stayed in bed today, I wish I had gotten up but if I had gotten up I probably wouldn't have been here. He is a super nice guy and we had a really nice visit. I see him around everywhere and I follow him on Facebook, he has a really cool and amazing life. Rosa came and got me something to eat, we did some personal care and I got a nice long hot bath… It was a good Saturday.

Sunday was a pretty relaxing day, I stayed in bed again and of course it was beautiful outside again. My plan was to stay in bed and watch movies but something went wrong with my DirecTV and every time I want to watch a movie I have to unplug one of the cords from the back and plug it back in and then do the same when the movies over, not right with it. My the choice is to watch it on my computer screen with Netflix, I might try that. I am really comfortable and I know it's going to be a relaxing day. I didn't realize then all of a sudden it's 4:20 PM and I haven't eaten. I had a lamb patty, scalloped potatoes and kale.

I liked the pictures of the sea lions, Tammie. All were great. I like the furniture too, but you are right, definitely a difference in the length of the chairs. It is amazing that Thanksgiving is next week!
