Didn't we have a snow fence discussion last year? It would save Pac a lot of work or maybe he enjoys playing in the snow.

Right now I am sitting here eating jerky. I better get the bag out of here or I'll eat the whole thing.
My neighbor made it and brought me some when he brought over some sausage yesterday. He made it from last year's deer sausage that he hadn't used, so it was already seasoned and he just had to add the curing salt and whatever else before he dehydrated it. The texture and taste is iincredible. Best jerky I ever ate. Making it from ground meat means it has just the right amount of chew without losing teeth tearing a piece off. Incredible. I think I'll have another piece before I put it away.

I just finished balancing five months of bank statements. I have no clue why I haven't stopped the paper ones and just get an email notification from the credit union every month.

This is why I prefer my debit account. Any bills get paid with money orders which are purchased with the debit card. When I need to check my balance I just call and get it. My balance right now includes all charges including computer purchases and payments. All transactions are complete when I make them.

My current (telephone) balance is what I really have, and I don't have to allow for non-cleared checks because there aren't any.

I should have realized you had already considered that.

Yeah, I played around with it for about eight years, moving it different distances from my driveway and angling it differently.

Hah! Believe me, I wish I could! I'd never clear my driveway. Unfortunately I have a small business on my property with something called customers

I am just trying to wake up. At times like this I really wish I could drink coffee, but the migraine I would get far out weighs the fatigue.

I am going to bake some goodies to take to my MIL tomorrow. She doesn't want Christmas gifts anymore, but they spend their winters in Palm Springs and she doesn't get home in time to bake (they arrived Wednesday and we are having the family dinner tomorrow). My neighbour is coming over to help me as I can't stand for very long any more. Besides, we have a great time together!

I am also hoping to finish making my Christmas cards and get them out. This is the first time making them. They aren't perfect because of my hands, but oddly I don't care! It seems that by accepting my new lessor abilities, I am also letting go of my perfectionism!

I just got off the phone with my doctor. My blood tests came back and I am still anemic and I am back to getting B12 shots.
Plus the xrays show the osteoarthritis is progressing in my neck, hands, feet and good knee.

Other things too but I don't want to bore you.

I could get down about this but I am a fighter and have better things to do than mope. I must say I am so glad I am back here though. Reading everyone else's stories helps to lift me up.

Now I have to go make some triple chip cookies for Andy!
