Somebody stop me…quick! I have just eaten 2 (TWO) nutty buddy ice cream bars and I want another one. Doesn’t sound as if I am stressed or anything, does it? Not that I have anything to be stressed about. And haven’t you heard that “stressed” is “desserts” spelled backwords. Coincidence , you say? I think not! I know…KNOW…KNOW that I do not need to eat another one. O.K. (deep breath)…I’m fine…just a little minor setback…I can handle this. I’m really not hungry…I just THINK I want another ice cream…I really don’t….that’s just the stress talking. What I REALLY want…… the calm and collected, sane me….. is …a big piece of Godiva Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory that does not live in my town, but is all I have been thinking about since Tracey brought it up! I knew it was going to be like this today when before I went to work I had to stop in at Walgreen’s and buy Afrin Nasal Spray and a bag of Dove Dark Chocolates and a large Diet Dr. Pepper. HELP!!!!! What makes these Nutty Buddy’s so good is they are made with PEANUT BUTTER ice cream with a center of CHOCOLATE…and waaaaay down at the bottom of the delicious sugar cone…the bottom 1/3 is also filled with chocolate! YES…You read me right. A delight for the taste buds…don’t ya think? NO, No, No…I do NOT want another ice cream….I know it’s not good for me or my hips….so, there is only 1 thing to do to stop this insanity….I’ve got to get my mind out of the refrigerator! O.K….all together now…what is the only solution to this problem of mine?…..YEAH!!! I hear you talking…I KNEW I could count on you girls to help a friend out…see ya later…I’ll show you my new shoes when I get back!!!
Just a quik note to let you know we finally got an appointment for Don in Birmingham. The young lady, Kara, who was so helpful during my meltdown with the office here, called me around noon yesterday to tell me that they still did not have an appt., but she was working on it and would get back to me soon. And she did. About an hour later, she called with an appt. — Wednesday morning at 9:oo. So Don and a very dear family friend are leaving this afternoon and will spend the night in Birmingham and be ready for the appt. on Wed. My youngest son, Ian, will be able to go to the appt. with them.
Because this came up so fast, I will not be able to go. This is program week at my school and I have programs Tue., Wed., and Thur. mornings. This is fine with Don, he knows I would be there if I could.
I may not be going…but I am sending a list of questions. Men…they never ask the right questions…or any questions at all sometimes.
So, please think of us in the morning and ask for God’s grace and mercy and healing power. I thank you again for your concerns. Will post as soon as I hear anything. Blessings….
I am a Christian woman who has survived many years on the planet. God has blessed me with a wonderful family: husband, 3 sons, a dear DIL, and a precious grandson. I also have dear friends to keep me inspired. I am an artist of sorts and am finding my way through the great blessing of retirement. I recently retired after 20 years as a music teacher. Life is good!
