Chapter 21

Good Morning,

Here in Missouri, we’re in the deep freeze like so many of you.  I’m most certainly not comparing us to the east coast.  We’re in the beginning stage of the winter storm.  It was supposed to bring in rain yesterday and then turn to snow.  I don’t remember if it rained or not, but woke up this morning to it snowing like there is no tomorrow.  We measured about 5 inches last week.  We just dug the car out (we’re old and slow-tee hee) made a run to Wal-Mart (ughhh) and got home before it started.  This time we’re to get snow and sleet.  They explained that sleet will bounce off the tree limbs and power lines so we shouldn’t have any outages. 

Thanks to the weather, I had to cancel my appointment in St. Louis. 
Wait 6 months for an appointment and a billion little frozen crystals put a stop to that.  They were able to get me another appointment in 6 weeks.  So we’ll leave about 4 a.m. to get a MRI done, and then see the doctor at 10:30.  Then I’ll be totally wiped out for a couple days.  You wouldn’t think a car drive would wear you out like that.
Our critters around here are just full of mischievous energy.  I don’t know if it’s the cold creeping into the house or if they’ve just went crazy.  They are sure fun to watch.  Tee hee. 

Starting to need a nap.  So, I’d better shut down before I start typing in my sleep.  I’ve done that before and then wake up to a page full of zzzzzzzzzzzzzs.
