Good morning! Not sure why I woke up at 3:30...decided to get on up, after several minutes of tossing and turning. I see signs that Den has been up also, sometime in the night...I never hear him, or if I do, it's so vague that it doesn't wake me. I thought I might have a hard time waking up when my alarm went off at 6:00 because I took NyQuil and it took effect right away...well, such is life. Mikie, I hope you can finally start feeling A LOT better! Myself, I fight depressive feelings every time I get sick. I'm picturing what this farm would be like if all our cats had access to catnip, lol! Dar, glad you are out of your flare...and got new shoes! I need to get my eyes checked again...was having the starts of cataracts also. I just don't know where to go now...my optometrist died a year or so ago. I have my records and I know where all his patients are being referred to...just not sure if that is the place I want. Rock, we are going to a pumpkin patch for Keira's birthday, a week from Saturday. Besides, getting a pumpkin, there are lots of activities for kids and adults. And Amy has a space reserved for having cake and ice cream and opening presents. Granni, no worries about getting on the wrong volume...hope you are doing okay. I should confess my big accomplishment yesterday. I am working on getting some buildings cleaned out, etc...whatever I can get done before winter comes. I knew we had lots of pop cans, piled in a shed...some of them from when my parents lived here. We pay a 5 cent deposit per can when we buy the pop, so have to turn them back in when we are done...if we want our money back. I knew there was a pretty good pile...even though we have stopped drinking pop. Den's dad told me about a place that is in the same town as my "local" chiro, so I figured I would bag some cans up and take them there. Ended up with 2, 265 cans and brought home $113.25! Wow! I got so excited, I finished bagging and counting when I got home (in between helping Lindsey get kiddos to bed.) My grand total of cans is 4,436! I will wait to take the others when I go back to the chiro in a couple of weeks. I'm gonna save this money for our trip to Texas, maybe this winter, for Uncle Harvey's 75th birthday in February. Den wants to go down and see my brother and sis-in-law sometime too, so now we have a little seed money, lol! Well, I've had a little snack, so think I will try to go back to sleep. I brought my pillow out to the living room, and will sleep here so I don't wake Den. Have a good Wednesday!
