Ted, your fit bit is certainly going to say you're a poor sleeper. You keep odd hours and have first sleep and second sleep and are just a mess that way. I can relate, especially when I worked night shift. You're entitled to complain about work. I have a rough spell coming up myself and you will hear from me. That fit bit sounds annoying. I couldn't be bothered with a reminder to get up and move. I'd say "witch please, I'm relaxing, so shut up!".
Joe, glad you had a chance to visit family.
Dianah, sounds like a dapper day. Rude people that think they are entitled to just jump in line annoy the crap out of me. Imagine the example he's setting to his children that it's okay to do this. This happened to me at the airport once when someone just walked in front of me. I said "by all means, please jump the line in front of me". He looked guilty and said, "oh, you can get in front of me". I just smiled "no thank you, the line's not moving and I'm not in a hurry and the plane won't leave without me."
Herring, I enjoyed the music.
Stars, I meant no disrespect. I meant to say "if you want to feel old along with me...........". Sometimes I look at those shows I enjoyed as a kid like "Lucy" and think "they are all dead now or old". Crazy huh?
So I did decide to take my walk on the beach. I made 3 miles. It was "Florida cold" in the low 50's, but I had a sweater and my heavy jacket and was actually too hot and broke out in a sweat. But I can handle hot, being cold is painful. Stopped by best friends to park for free and he was home and joined me, although he walked very slow and I left him behind. The beach was lovely.
I also splurged and decided to book a few days in Fort Lauderdale next month when I'm taking my Christmas and New Year's holidays. Since my England trip was canceled and I have that money and then some I decided I could afford to splurge. The gay guesthouses were all booked for what I wanted, so I went mainstream. I wanted a suite that was either on the beach or walkable. The "on the beach" ones were too expensive, so I couple of blocks away, I found a good one that borders on the gay neighborhood "Wilton Manors", so I can support some restaurants and other businesses there. It's still an extravagance, but as my mother always said "you only live once and you can't take it with you". I got a place with two beds in case best friend wants to come (and split the cost...hehe).
Today is a routine Monday. Going to the gym first among my chores, and it's "clean the bathroom sMonday". A new season of bowling starts tonight. Maybe we'll do better than 18th place.
Hope everyone has a great day.
