I am sitting here waiting to hear from the hospital what time my surgery is scheduled for.

Because I smoke, I like to keep the two windows open a crack in the winter. Today it is really chilly out. My computer is right near the windows. I have to choose to wearing a sweater or closing the windows. I hate wearing a sweater in the house. But the choice is made for me. The windows will stay open a crack. There is no other place I can put the computer.

I do need to go out and tackle the sink AGAIN! I need to start buying some good plastic forks and spoons. I go through the clean ones like they were just trash to toss away. Instead they go into the sink waiting for me to get up off my bottom and wash them. I need a maid. Just to keep the sink empty. Oh well, I am ff to clean the kitchen.

I smoke too but I hate the smell I always keep my windows open no matter what the weather. I don't like heat either so I put the AC on the coldest setting in the dead of winter.
It's always the same routine in my house. I open everything and Hubby closes them. We could carry on like that for hours just opening and closing windows and doors

Stirling and I just now piled the garden furniture and put the tarp over the pile. Just in time too. There were a few snowflakes when I went shopping.

I have been smoking since I was 10 y.o. I am now 73 and I just love it when folks tell me I should quit smoking. I don't think so. And don't start telling me all the benefits. I have heard them all. I smoke because I want to. I don't drink, and I stopped chasing men a long time ago. I live alone. I smoke in my home or outside and never near other people. Some folks eat lots of chocolate. I smoke. Leave me alone.

I started when I was 14 and I have no plans to quit anytime soon. I love telling Dr's that I don't smoke, they never seem to know whats wrong if you "don't smoke"
I don't smoke near my children and it's the one thing that calms me down.
It's either tobacco or happy pills, I choose tobacco
I drink more than enough pills thank you, I'm full after taking my Chronic meds alone

You seem to do a lot of ironing. You have also mentioned that you don't like ironing. Have you considered getting a steamer?

I'm finishing up cleaning the house for my daughter's visit tomorrow. She and I plan to eat and sight-see for a week or so. She's in from Denver and was dreading the heat down here, but it has turned off nice - 60's at night and 80's daytime. Have bought way too many sweets plus have plans to get gelato and fresh donuts while she's here.

That should be fun, Lizzie! I hope you both have a good time.
