Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
Today is my nephew Tony Magorno’s 40 Birthday! Happy Birthday Tony!
Dad is driving himself to exercise again this morning. Bill and Carol are waiting for the delivery guy for their new furniture. I have been taking tons of L-lysine, and I think it is working. I have been super stressed. Finally, took some xanax last night to mellow back down. This older (my age or a little younger)? guy asks me yesterday at the post office – “What is your Lucky Number”? “Hmmm,” I answer. “I don’t really know”. He replies, “8! BECAUSE YOU ATE ALOT”. He was calling me Fat, right to my face. I’d already had a really stressful day with dad yesterday, and then this guy brings honesty right to my face. On the positive side, I’m hoping maybe his words hurt enough, I might take this weight thing seriously. We’ll see. I’m so darn lazy, and I feel like I really don’t have a life, bogged down here with dad, what’s the point. But, we’ll see. Feelings change. Maybe I’ll get motivated. After all, I am dedicated to eating at least one apple a day for at least the next forty days. I am now eating a lot of raw potatoes and also air-popped popcorn. One day at a time. Just glad I have today mostly to myself.
Can you believe this turned into a really good day. I had been heading toward Fremont to go to my favorite KFC (which later today, I found out actually is no longer there). I got sidetracked and went to Mission San Jose. Can you believe that it has been a minimum of ten years or more that I have tried to get over there. Either I don’t have the time, the money ($3.00), or the weather is not warm enough for me. (Wuss). But, today was the perfect day. I really enjoyed it. There were two groups of students on tours with two different (VERY different) docents. I listened a bit to each of the docents. The kids are so distracted and disrepectful. You would think the chaperones would insist on a little better behavior. But, what do I know. I don’t spend much time around kids and am pretty spoiled that way. I have been blessed to live in an all-adult park most of the last 34 years. Then I ran some errands. Finally, I ended up taken a barefoot walk around the Twin Bridges Park. And when I got home, Bill and Carol had brought dad and I Straw Hat Pizza for dinner! Perfect!
