the countdown till spring has reached 50 days. We are almost through with the month of January, I can’t say that I will be sad to see it end. It has been nothing but snow and bitter cold here since the end of November. I have done nothing but eat and sleep and eat and sleep and eat and sleep. I have almost gained back all of the weight that I lost last summer during my cancer treatment. I have only ventured outdoors to clean the snow off my car and run errands for the past 2 months. I can just about count these times on one hand. My usually sunny nature is somewhat tarnished and I am beginning to look at the postman with a jaundiced eye.
And….I am beginning to have this awful fear of putting anything important in the mail wondering if it will get to its destination. I can certainly understand why the postal service is going broke. It is very poorly managed. A check on the status of my package shows that it is still in Hazelwood MO today, January 29, still being processed. You know Hazelwood MO is only 18.3 miles from where my brother and his wife live in O’Fallon IL. I think I should call him and ask him if he will drive over to the sorting facility and bring the package to me. It would only be a 360 mile round trip for him. I am waiting with baited breath to see where my package ends up next. Rae thinks the next stop will be Houston Texas but I was more inclined to think that it is destined to be in the process of being processed through the Hazelwood MO sorting facility forever.
It has warmed up to 5 degrees here this morning. I am planning a grocery run when it warms up a few more degrees. That is if my car will start. I haven’t started it since Sunday as it as been too cold to venture out.
Have a great day everyone. Don’t forget to check in tomorrow for an update on my package. Stay safe and be happy!!
