Where Did Fall Go?

This is for my chatter friend Dee. She says that I should write more often so that she will at least know that I am still ok...

Today we woke up to temps in the 30's. Where did Fall go? It seems like summer ends and we go straight into winter. When did that happen?

I sure didn't get done today what I had planned to do. I worked in the office for awhile and got quite a bit of stuff ready for the trash. Need to pack some of the stuff that I have sorted I have sorted. Maybe tomorrow.

Mac even went grocery shopping for me today.

I haven't been feeling very good for a couple of days now and I woke up this morning with a headache, sore throat, and achy feeling all over. I just kind of lazed around the rest of the day. I feel like I should be doing something, but just can't seem to make myself get motivated.

Mac and I went to the Ear Nose and Throat doctor last week before we headed to Missouri for my Aunt's funeral. Well the doctor told me that my growths on my thyroid are only a little larger and won't be needing any surgery at this time. I will have to have another sonogram in 12 months. Now Mac on the other hand...the growths on his vocal chords are growing back. They have grown back about 20 - 25% but the doctor doesn't want to do surgery since they are still so small. He is going to have to have hernia surgery sometime before the end of the year, and if he does, then Dr Metz will take the growths at the same time.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Where has this year gone? I don't think that we have any special plans for Thanksgiving this year. The kids all have plans with their family so we will probably just take mom and Jerry out to eat.

Mac is really close to time for his vacation to start. He starts on November 26th, and retires on Jan 2nd. Then he starts his Environmental Inspection Job around April 1st. He's determined not to start sooner because he doesn't want to miss the Kerrville
He will be on vacation for about 4 months and I have a long list of things to get done around here so that we can get this house on the market as soon as possible since I will still be working. Maybe. I'm ready for a long vacation but if he is going to be working out of town a lot, and I can't go with him full time because of my mom and my brother, I guess I might as well work. If I still have a job.

Well, I'm gonna get off here and check out the chat room!

Life isn't measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away...

Thank you for updating the blog. It's good to see you in the chatroom too. Fall did come quick this year. Keep warm, safe and hope all goes well with the thyroid and throat for mac.

Good to hear from you again. I love your fall decor....
When we lived up north we always felt the same way about the weather going from summer right to winter. And fall has always been my favorite season.
Glad you got good reports from the dr.
