Happy Mardi Gras

Next week is filled with Mardi Gras activities. Those of us who aren't working are visiting several schools, hospitals, and nursing homes dressed in our decorated Mardi Gras jackets to toss a few beads.

Wow! What a day!

I'll be saying the same thing next weekend, but for a much different reason..First, I had to admit to myself that I was a dumbass! I took the whole box of samples of Januvia the doc gave me and then took the prescription to get it filled. Apparently, I threw the damn pills away after I picked them up. They are nowhere to be found at this house. Monday I will go to the doc's office and admit that I am a dumbass to them as well and ask for another box of samples. If I ask for a refill at the drugstore I can get them, but insurance will not pay for my stupidity.

I spent all day at Mom and Dad's working in the garden and the yard. I planted 3 rows of potatoes and one row of onions. Then, I spent the rest of the day working in the yard. I enjoy doing it, but I don't know when to quit. I worked right through lunch and now I am totally beat down. Old age is not for sissies!

When I got home, a neighbor friend brought me a little heart shaped cake that she had made. Yes, I ate half of it for lunch!
