Post # 209
What a weekend! I slept through it! I am not sure if it is the new medication, the depression, the weather, or just me being exhausted...probably a combination of all of that but I have slept about 18 hours out of every 24 the past three days. I have to stay awake all day tomorrow to take care of my granddaughter. Casey has a cold so she won't be coming in to relieve me at noon so I will need to stay until 5:30 or later so the plan is to stop and get a 44 oz caffeinated soft drink on the way at 7 a.m.
This morning about 4 a.m the dogs woke me up to go outside. I just got them back inside when the lightning started. By the time I was back snuggled under the covers the rain started coming down just furiously. It sounded so awful I thought about getting up and seeing what the heck was happening but I was so sleepy, so warm, so comfy I thought if my single wide trailer gets blown away I might as well be wrapped in this warm blanket! I am still here so we did not blow away! It was very cloudy all day. Almost 7 p.m. and it is drizzling again. Suppose to get down to 25 degrees tonight so I had gone out and sprayed my car windows with vinegar. I read that if you do that you will not have frost on the windows. About the time I got in the house the drizzling started so I guess my vinegar will be washed off. Will have to try that again another day to see if it works. I don't have a garage so leaving here at 7 a.m. means scraping heavy frost of the windows on these cold nights.

Yesterday I had two good visits. My daughter and grandsons came over and I enjoyed them so much. I had a hard time waking up from my afternoon nap (side effect of my new medication I suppose---or just my regular depression brain fog) so I didn't get to play a game or cards with them. We agreed we will do that in two weeks when they get to come again. I told my grandsons I was getting rid of a bunch of things and one was a clown wig. Travis decided he needed it. I am going through junk I have in my room and getting rid of everything I don't really need.
My son is a barista at Starbucks and when he got off work Sunday he came over for dinner. It was a cold evening. I had beef and vegetable stew in the crock pot and made cornbread....one of my favorite meals. He is just the most interesting person I know. I love our conversations.
