I'm trying to take it easy today after the activities of the weekend. Just the energy of all the people around gets me keyed up and then extremely tired. I miss Mike and his family, and hope their trip back to NY is a smooth one.
For now I'm just trying to do as little as I can, although I washed two baskets of laundry and took them over to the dryers in the laundry room. Steve knows someone who is buying a new washer and dryer and is looking into getting the old dryer for me. It depends on whether the person wants to let it go as a set. That would make it so much easier for me to have a dryer here. I only do laundry every two weeks, sometimes longer, so I doubt the electricity would make much of a difference.
It is a hot week but I hope it doesn't get into triple digits. It feels really hot when I have to go outside though. Thank goodness it is cool in the morning when I get my errands done. I need to make myself go to the gym early and walk as many days a week as I can. I've been remiss in doing much of anything and it is beginning to take its toll on me.
My niece took several group photos this weekend and I tried to cut and paste one that I'm in so I should show you my haircut. Whatever photographic program she uses is not compatible with my severely limited skills, and I can't do it. I could just show the group photo but I decided a while back to not post photos of my family. I know the rest of the gang is posting like crazy on facebook, but I don't agree with that.
I think I'll eat my dinner soon before I lose my appetite. I made a beef soup with potatoes and a few other vegetables, and it looks and smells good even though I'm really not crazy about beef. I bought a lot of it when I found out my iron was low. I have an appointment with the doctor in a week or so and I am going to ask for a blood retest as I want to know where I stand. I'd sure love to quit taking the iron tablets, but I'll probably have to continue with them. I haven't had the severe bruising on my arms that I've had in the past when supplementing iron. I sure could never tell by my energy level that it's doing me a bit of good!
