The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

We didn't blow away last night. Several rows of power lines down around town, some Semi-trucks were blown over on the interstate and a few trees down in the high straight-line winds but so far we haven't found any problems it caused us. |
My son and his family got a tornado warning siren and the city hall about 2 miles away had some damage in straight-line winds over 70 mph but they came out of the bathroom unscathed. They a lot of trees in neighboring properties that are big enough to fall on their house so high winds are always scary there.
I had to take my bras up to the last hooks yesterday.
Quite a little stack of seed catalogs to look at on this cold and rainy day. A little piece of spring in the middle of winter.
The heat has worked fine today. Last week we were afraid it was going out because it would try to come on two or three times and then just quilt. We have a guy coming out to check it but he was snowed under and won't get here until later in the week but it has had no problems today at all.

1. Willingness to work my program even when the number on the scale doesn’t reflect all my work! |
2. An email from WW yesterday asking me if I could do a Zoom interview next Wednesday! Excited to be moving on in this process to be a substitute leader/receptionist. I talked to someone who used to be a substitute leader and she believes they will pay my monthly fee each month, and then they pay $9.00 an hour for any time I actually work! Waiving that monthly fee will save me $44.95 a month so I am excited about that savings!
3. Hip feeling better. My chiropractor told me that it could take 4-6 weeks to have this muscle/hip back 100%.
4. Cauliflower crackers that I found at Aldis! They are pretty darn good. 44 crackers for 3 points! Love that.
5. Took off a couple hours early yesterday and came home and took a nap! Felt so nice to do that!

- Murray & I(mostly Murr - he does most of the labor.. I am 'idea' person) are still doing OK about cleaning together. |
I have an idea for next Dec. it's a xmas tree decorated with socks or gloves. People give these things as a donation. I want it to be a way to help homeless people or those in homeless shelters. I don't know how to get started... where, who etc. I will start researching it now.
- doing some better with eating my Crohn's food
- Maya calls me on 'facetime?' and acts silly. I love silly.
- it will be in the 60's for temp today. I will try to enjoy.

Made it through yesterday! I started at 8 and didn't finish with clients until 6. I had 4 intakes and 5 returning clients scheduled. I am not used to that kind of endurance anymore but I had to add a client at the beginning and end of the day because I had to move them around earlier in the week. But, I did it! Have a ton of notes to write. My back and butt do not like sitting that long. I took a walk at lunch time but other than that, it was open door/close door letting clients in and out. |
3 yelling, kicking and screaming days back on track. Don't feel like I have a 'flow' going-more like tooth and nail but I'm at least in the game again. Krista and Cindyh fighting to get back in has helped. Thanks, ladies.
Guy coming to fix my roof and cut out the black mold my bedroom closet. They are also going to start painting my bedroom.
Had good news about costs. Saw the new dentist (who I liked). I knew I need a root canal and crown. I figured that would run somewhere between $2000 and $2500 even after insurance. $1200 even with a cleaning afterwards! Painter gave me an estimate for painting the bedroom. $500 less than what I thought it would be! Now, I can get that pet-stained, duct taped, filthy carpet out of there and replaced with plank vinyl.
Brunch with Deborah tomorrow.

Good news about the costs being lower so you can get the flooring changed too. You may never leave your bedroom after they are finished. |
Hold on tight, Paula

You are doing so well. It's tough... but, you are pushing forward. I am cheering you on. It feels good. |
Bravo for getting through yesterday's clients. So happy.
Way to go, Paula!
