I drove around a little after I dropped my son off at his group meeting. I saw an awesomw halloween display on someones porch. I hope to get my lights up with a few decorations this year.

I had a real horror in my garbage can. A possum was in there yesterday, when I tipped the can over today with a rake it was still there. I left the garbage can sideways and took off. I was too scared to see if it was dead or alive…my son said it was alive yesterday. I want it to be scared of me and run off into the woods. I don’t think it did.

Tomorrow is a new day. It is warming up again. I am so glad I won’t have to wear socks for awhile. I am almost packed for my trip. I still need to clean my house. My house always needs cleaning.

I lost a few more pounds. I am starving right now. I ate dinner late so I should not be hungry at all. I went to the doctor today. I have to go back in two months after I do bloodwork and a chest xray. I was surprised they said chest xray. The receptionist said they are routine, every year. Huh, I don’t remember having one ever.

There Is More Than One Way To Recycle


All the paper I am hoarding now can be sold by my great great offspring. I am just kidding of course, if this junk does not sell in a few months it is going in a large bin at the dump. I am hoping it sells.

I also have my own hoard of paper called snail mail. Collectors still use this ancient form of communication. I swear I will get through sorting mine tomorrow. My town uses it for their tax bill. I made a mistake last year of having the bank just cut them a check. They did not know what to do with it.

My son did not go to school today. He did wake himself up and start to get ready. He then woke me up to tell me he was not going, he did not feel good. Well I heard him sneeze all night, so I knew it was allergies. I told him he is taking an allergy pill and going tomorrow. One thing that is good with him being home, is I got him to take the garbage out. He had a surprise waiting for him in my empty garbage can. There was a possum inside. Yikes, I tried to look to see if it was gone later, I was too scared to get close enough to look in. I thought of tipping it over with a rake, which is what I will do tomorrow. At least it was not a skunk. I hope the bag of garbage sitting in my lawn makes it through the night undisturbed.
