I'm FREEZING!!!!!


I am so cold. I bought a big infrared heater recently. Every time I plug it in, it trips a breaker, so I am waiting for the company to send me a free shipping label. So I have a little heater, sweat clothes, and a down throw on me when I sit on the couch. We have had a cold rain for all of the day and it just is getting chillier and chillier as the day goes on. Hopefully, it will stop tomorrow. The temperature isn't even that low, it's just cold!!! And as I type this, I hear that rain coming down!
Well, tomorrow is Halloween, and no, I will not be passing out candy to eighteen and nineteen year old people. I will turn my lights out and hole up in my room. I got so mad a couple of years ago when, what had to be, football players taking all of the candy. Last year I turned out the lights, and what a relief to not have to be jumping up and down to be greeted by someone taller than me, begging for candy!!!!
For those that have missed it, my new email address is treid54@gmail.com. Write me! I cannot even get back into my other email addresses so I don't have a very full address book on gmail. So, again, write me so I can add you to my new address book.
That's all for now. I am so ready for bed, being so cold and having just had a bowl of soup, but I have to stay up to watch MONK. Then I will hit the bed!!!! Oh, and we get an extra hour this weekend. Yay!!!
Happy Halloween, Y'all!!!

Things that are happenin'


Hey, folks, long time no write, right? I just have not been able to share my feelings lately, so I just haven't bothered to write on my blog.
But things are happening. I just got back three weeks ago from a trip to Oregon and California. Oregon and California, you say? I went to visit a friend, who has become more than a friend, and had a wonderful time. We visited Crater Lake and the giant redwoods in northern California. There was an interesting story about a waitress in the Avenue of the Giants. Some day I will tell about it!!! Just not today! I am still having trouble with my jaw, though, so that put a damper on some of the festivities. I could only eat soft things. If I don't talk all day, it doesn't hurt! So, I applied for disability through one of those lawyers on tv because I was turned down when I did it myself. I want to find a part time or even a full time job, one where I won't have to really interact with people because of this malady, just do my job, get health insurance, and get paid. If the disability comes through, they said it would be at least a year! I gotta do something before a year is up, that's for sure.
This coming weekend is the Smith/Reid family reunion. As usual, there will be new faces there and old faces gone, due to the changing families. All that food is going to be tempting to me, but I will have to stick to soft stuff. Shoot, I may even only be able to eat dessert! Usually they are soft, but hopefully there will be soft veggies. I am going to take some mashed potatoes or potato salad that I can eat. It ought to be fun, if this friggin' rain would stop!!!!!!!
Well, that is all for now. I am alive, reasonably well, and happy that I may have found someone new to be in my life. But let me tell you, flying from Jackson to Medford, Oregon is literally for the birds! Layovers, early flight (5 am)times, lugging luggage (Hey, I guess that is why is it is called "luggage"! Cool!)
Anyway, I hope to get regular with my blog again, but if it is still a few weeks between posts, then I don't have anything to say!!!
Take care, everybody!
