Well, I don’t really have an excuse. That was just to get your attention. I don’t really like the month of March here on Cape Cod. It’s not winter so there is no more snow, which we didn’t get much of anyway this year. I like snow. I also don’t have to drive in it. I just get to stay home and sit by the fireplace and drink diet cocoa when it snows.
March is not Spring yet either. The weather is still somewhat cold and it rains a lot, though there are little signs of spring. My sister is a gardener. She has beautiful gardens in her yard. She has a sunset garden and all the flowers are sunset colors. She has a white garden. Well, anyway, her snowdrops are in bloom.
I also saw ducks in my swamp for the first time this week, a definite sign of spring.
I am still waiting for the pinkletinks (spring peepers), my favorite sign of spring. No sign of them yet. It’s been too cold.
I still haven’t come up with my excuse for not posting much this month. I’m trying to think of one as I write. I’m not depressed. Zoloft takes care of that for me. I’ve been working hard towards my goals, or most of them. The weight loss is going good. Slow, but good. I still haven’t done any of my craft projects but I went over to The Bead Den
to get inspired to start beading.
Driving over the bridge twice by myself took a lot out of me. I did it without any panic attacks and really wasn’t even nervous but by the time I get home I’m really tired. I’m sure the more I do it, the easier it will get.
I got my first panic attack when I was about 12 years old. The doctors didn’t even know what it was or have a name for it. They said I was watching The Twilight Zone too much. I am serious. That’s what they blamed it on. So I’ve been getting panic attacks on and off for 46 years. The last 8 or 9 years I’ve been good. Driving was the last thing I had to conquer and would cause a panic attack. I seem to be doing much better with that. Now everyone gets panic attacks.
I hope all of you who know Kaylee are sending her good vibes today. She is having surgery for her cancer.
I still haven’t come up with an excuse for not writing. I can’t say I was busy, though I spend way too much time at the grocery store. Besides WalMart (where I hate to shop), the grocery stores are the only ones with cripple carts.
Though I discovered since I can drive a little further than I used to, there is a Target not too far from here with cripple carts. That’s my next destination. I have to wait until the third of the month until I get my check and will have a little spending money before I go.
Sarah made us all Easter baskets last year and I didn’t think to make her one. I had just gotten out of the health care center after having pneumonia. This year she’s getting a basket. I already told the wasband he’s got to cough up the money for it. Of course, he said yes then asked “How much will you need?” I said about $40.00. He thought I was joking. I explained to him she doesn’t eat candy now that she’s lost all the weight. What am I going to put in it, popcorn? I’m going to buy her prizes. (we call presents-prizes). By the time you buy a basket and that shredded plastic stuff that gets everywhere, you’ve already spent $10 bucks. We have a couple of great gift stores in town that sell really cool stuff. So my daughter will get an Easter basket.
OK, I guess I don’t have an excuse for not writing. Oh Wellll!!!! I’m going Easter basket shopping now with my sister.
