Catching UP…

Standard
Monday was clear and cold here sunny too. Was happy to see
a clear day with no snow. Took Mom in for her check-up. She still
has some of the pneumonia left and the Dr. gave her another
round of antibiotics just to be on the safe side. She goes back
in two weeks again.  He stated that pnuemonia is very difficult to
treat in elderly patients, they can decline very fast. This I know
all too well, as my Dad used to get it.  He was encouraged
by her energy levels and her appetite though.   I was relieved for sure.

Gas prices have come way down here to 1.75.. last week they were
running 1.85 to 1.91.. Some people are sure getting lucky if they
time their fill-up just right!

Watched the entire speech the President gave tonight. As I watched,
my mother kept repeating the phrase.. Promises, promises over and over
again. She said that all the speeches she ever listened to, the Presidents
always promised things and we never got what he said we would get.
We would be lucky if this President would see half of what he promises
to do in his first 4 years.  I sure hope that is wrong.. I hope things can
begin to change. SO many are suffering here in our own country.
I liked the part about making cars and parts HERE in our country and not
depending on other countries for them. I could just see our governor
up on her feet cheering. So much depends on so many things. I hope
all those things can find their way to get together for good. I can dream.

Sunny and cold here and some rain coming in.. then back to cold again.
We are on the roller coaster that always shows up right before spring.
Local forecaster said tonight we have 2 whole hours more of daylight now
since the solstice. I am loving that!! WE CHANGE THE CLOCKS FORWARD
on  MARCH 8th!!  WOW time flies… I will be more than ready!
##################################################################
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY!!
