I'm praying for all of you! I wrote of names.

Is there certainly an Ogress Minion?

Love,

If you need special characters and you are using a Windows operating system, you can use "Character Map". It's how I get French diacritical marks and Danish letters.

I'm catching up here and on FaceBook after a lovely, Thanksgiving weekend at my mummy-in-law's place.

Busy day

This morning we flew a cancer patient and his fiance to UCLA medical center for evaluation. In the afternoon I donated blood.

I wish I could donate blood. I have perfectly round red blood cells. That means they can't turn corners with ease and has the immediate means of creating a blood clot. A trait you do not want to pass on to another patient. Something I received from my father when I was just a few hours old. He gave me some of his blood. And then again when I was three months old. So instead I am the recipient of the kindness of folks like yourself. Thank you.

I am sitting here at 1:30 a.m. in total shock. My daughter took me clothes shopping last week. She bought me three pairs of warm slacks/pants for the winter along with tops. They are a 14 Petite. The waistband came up to my armpits. And the waistband is way too big. I am so glad I do not remove the tags. They are going back. The tops fit fine. The last time I was in a 14P, was right after my daughter was born. And that was 63 years ago. These pants are so big I think I am going to have to go down to a 12P or even a 10P. I have some undergarments that are a size 8. They are stretched out and also just too big. So I got some size 6. Perfect fit!

Oversize folks can not cross their legs with any comfort. I can now cross mine and even swing my leg while it is crossed. Everyone keeps telling me the same thing the scales tell me. I have lost a lot of weight and am now thin. But I don't feel thin. I am walking more and more without the aid of my scooter. I stand up much straighter. I have more energy. Food is no longer the center of my world. When I get bored, I get physically busy with a chore. I don't look to food to fill the time. But I still don't feel thin. I need new eyeglasses. I have been using and buying Sophia Loren frames for years. I love the way they fit on my face. But I decided to go wild this time and found a pair that are more in style of today. And I love them. I actually look younger with these frames. But the best part is that my face is thinner and looks it with these frames. They makes my cheek bones standout. Something I haven't seen since my teenage years.

I have to learn to accept the new me and enjoy being thin and feeling thin. I wouldn't mind losing another ten pounds though. Then I would really be back to my teen years.
