Stamp Out Hunger


Ok, did you all get this card in your mailbox today? Saturday, May 12th you put a bag of non-perishable items at your mailbox & the mail carrier will deliver to the local food banks! :-) www.helpstampouthunger.com I'm so excited! Now how easy is that? If someone has an excuse I'm going to get them...I got two herniated disks & you better believe I'm going to do this. Speaking of which...

I did get back to work last week & this is finals week...just surviving! I have one numb foot...well half & appears to be some at my ankle level & a bit outside leg? My hip works depending on the day. Last two nights rough, laying on back no good, side no good, my foot just gets more numb & cold. The prednisone I didn't see any difference but maybe it prevented it from getting worse. I'm on my own now until I see this doc on May 22nd. Not the guy I wanted to see....one of his colleagues...they see patients once a week! Ugh. I just want to get through graduation Sat & then I can make calls Monday & try to get in earlier. Ya, prof. walk with our Master's or PhD ceremonial caps & gowns, mine is a green & white cape. Speaking of which I better get that out and dust it off. Ha! What I'm really upset about is my cable tv has been out all day. Not my internet though? Dang Comcast. First they say area outage but now ok & I still don't have anything, which means I didn't get to watch the Cubs tonight...they were tied up...ugh just checked online they lost. Ugh! No M*A*S*H either...I love to have it on the background to relax.

I did get to see my niece this weekend. We went to see Meet the Robinsons. It was ok, some parts great for my class. I'll have to go get it on DVD. I picked up Because I Said So for myself & to send to my mom for mother's day. She & my dad loved it. Kept telling all the retired people in their area to go see it & they were! HA! I ordered her some books that are like sequels to Pride & Prejudice. Ya, she loves that one just like Kathleen Kelly in You Got Mail. Ha! I think my mom has almost all the video versions of it. I like it too, although not the newest one? I'll have toread these books I ordered for her after she is done with them. Well, my niece, my brother (her uncle) & I went to dinner after the movie & then she got some ice cream at Cold Stone...she was having some Tonsil problems. Mon her mom took her to the doc, virus...Z-Pack & in 2-3 weeks going to recheck. She has been having problems for sometime. I'm not too sure it isn't allergies but then again her Auntie :-) had begged not to have hers out when she was a kid only to have to get them out a few weeks after High School graduation...woo hoo! At least I got to lay on a beach in MI the 2nd week to recoup. I highly recommend the beach...for almost anything! Ha! I love the beach...a sea gull was talking to me in the parking lot today & man did I so want to go to beach.

Sorry I missed wishing you all a Happy Cinco De Mayo! Hope you had fun!
