Life after court

Last Tuesday, I had my first hearing concerning the denial of my comp. injury. It seems like everything went well, but I need to see another comp. doctor sometime in January.

But, at least I got my first paycheck since mid September, and luckily it came in on Wednesday, just in time to get the fixins for Thanksgiving.
Romeo and I had Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday evening and leftovers on Thursday midday.

I bought the pumpkin pie, (BIG MISTAKE) and had the ORIDA steam and mash potatoes, home-made cranberry sauce, and had an entire jar of Heinz gravy. Not quite a traditional Thanksgiving, but not bad considering, I had to work 2:45 to 11.

No family here, but the DD called and we shared a few laughs about past meals and faux-pas!

Happy Turkey Day

Today will be like most Thanksgivings at my house...or should I say at work, because that's where I'll be spending the day. The Supervisors do set out a spread of cookies, cold meat, rolls, and snacks for the staff, and we usually cook a big Thanksgiving dinner on the cottages, but we are not allowed to do it on Thanksgiving, as dietary had the holiday meal prepared for the individuals.

I see my DD will be on the road to the in-laws, and is a bit upset that there will be no left-overs, but they will be doing the "Big Meal" on Friday.

I made my mini-meal lastnight, chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, and the left-overs will be going with me to Polk, today.

Have a great day, and don't overeat! And may the Creator be thanked for our blessings.

My world is loosing its laughter

I have just been invited to a "going away" party for one of my friends. It's not your usual going away party. She's leaving us for good, and wants to have her wake before she's too sick to appreciate it. I will miss her, and her WILD sense of the absurd. God hold you in the palm of HIS/HER hand, until we meet again!
