Gosh, I'm so far behind here.....lol. So glad it's Friday, I've been called in to work more than I care for this week, and I'm exhausted. Maybe I'm getting too old to work with multiple children.

pac, congrats on your new chicks. I would love to have just a few chickens, for just a few eggs, but zoning won't allow it.

Just made myself a screwdriver - I rarely have booze in my house so had to stop at the liquor store and buy it. Going to sit out on the patio for a while and enjoy every sip.

No worries, Cave. Yes, I have been checked for clots. Just last month I was hospitalized with pain in my chest after my gall bladder surgery and it was a pocket of blood in my liver which they drained.

I did see my doctor today, and she is running a new set of blood tests regarding my anemia and infection. She is also very concerned about the water retention and has increased my diuretic for one week just to see what happens. If it gets worse in that time, or no better after, then I have to go back for more tests.

As for the coughing, yes, I do have bronchitis and was having a reaction to the anti-biotic the clinic put me on. I am now on Amoxicillin and rest for 7 days. She wants me to do light exercise so my chronic pain stays in check, but no pool until my lungs clear up.

I am very tired tonight after the two-hour travel time and almost an hour in the doctor's office waiting. Plus I had to go out to get my prescription and some food I can eat while TB went to work. I think it is curl up with the furbabies time and early to bed.

I am getting so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am glad I have my hat orders and a re-wedding to plan!

About the same time we were waiting in the Toll Booth office for a decal for my new van for the two toll bridges. They had cancelled my old decal on the car I traded in, but never issued me a new one so I had 6 round trips at full price deducted from my credit card! It should have been 3 free trips and three at half price. I will be getting a credit on the next bill!

Hope you got a good picture on your license, Dave. Mine looks like a morgue shot, seriously!

Because my daughter works for the DMV, I often get special treatment. I get special "before hours" appointments to go in for my ID. As a result, I make it a point to look my very best. I learned many years ago to;

turn my shoulders slightly to the side;
turn your head to the opposite side you have turned your shoulders,
and never look directly at the camera lens. Look slightly downward and to the side.

I have never had a bad picture taken at the DMV. You can smile for your picture. Just remember, you won't be smiling if you get stopped for a violation. I always have just a small slight smile on my face. In fact I had a cop once ask me if I had a professional picture taken and gave it to the DMV to place in their computer system.

Right now I am sitting her watching Sleeping Beauty on PBS. It has been years since I have seen this ballet. I love the music along with the ballet and movement.

You just reminded me that my license expires in November. I just texted my daughter's friend who works at the DMV, and was told I may have to have a vision test to renew my license this year. There might be 3 or 4 people ahead of me in line in this small town.

Tonight around 8 I got this wild notion to try my hand at making macarons, they were a success! They could have used more prominent "feet" but I can work on that!

I'll have to post a pic in the baking thread.

We got done watching North To Alaska, watching McClintock now and have The Three Godfathers on DVR for tomorrow. Turner Classic Movies is having a John Wayne marathon this week.
