Tuesday Morning

May 16th, 2017 at 07:18 am

Got my hair cut yesterday ($16 with tip) and mailed my packages ($15). Variables are now 79%.

My SIL is on her way from Michigan and we will get together for lunch today. I'm vacuuming and dusting in case she comes in to see my place, but she may be on such a tight schedule that won't happen. Funny how my place always looks fine to me until someone comes to visit.

I finished 1941 in my mother's diary. On December 8, 1941, she simply wrote, "WAR IS DECLARED!" Of course, she also commented on the Pearl Harbor bombing the day before. At this point, three uncles are in the service. She mentions that my father was "on fire" to join the navy, and even went to talk to a recruiter. This is something I never knew. He did not serve. Perhaps I'll find out why -- but knowing my mom, she might not mention the reason. I always thought it was because he was married with a child, but actually my brother hasn't been born yet.

I'm looking forward to 1942 to see about the changes war brought in their lives.

I watched the second episode of Victorian Slum House yesterday. I believe the third is airing tonight. The incredible struggle of these families makes me appreciate my own circumstances.

I think I'm going to stop posting my daily menu, because I so often deviate from it! Just going to be mindful of what I eat -- get my fruits/veggies, watch the calories, eat enough to be satisfied but not stuffed. And of course be very mindful of using up food that needs to be eaten.

No cooking plans today, as I will go out for lunch, and dinner is an unknown.

I had to reschedule my dentist appointment because my grandson's 4th grade graduation was scheduled at the same day and time. My new appointment is November 27! They said they will call, though, if there are cancellations.

I guess that's it! Time to pull out the vacuum.

    I feel the same way about my place! Must be due to imagining how things look through someone else's eyes.

    I'll have to look up this tv show!

    I agree. Things seem OK until I know someone is coming over and then I frantically start cleaning.

    Wow, that's a long time to wait for the dentist if there isn't a cancellation.

    Looking forward to 1942 too!

    ep, a visitor is the best motivation to clean. Smile

    I tidy a couple of times a week, but man, between then. I need a more regular cleaning schedule, I think. I like Victorian Slum House too. Tonight's was excellent, I thought. I've read a lot about Victorian culture, but they presented it really interestingly.
