ix and a half hours of sleep! It’s been about a week since I have slept that much! Praise the Lord. I call aloud to the LORD, and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and sleep. I wake up again because the LORD continues to support me. (Psalm 3:4&5)
‘m a trouble maker, an instigator, an agitator. I like to poke at things, people, and ideas, just to see what happens. When things become too quiet, I try to rile them up again. I pick at mental scabs.
ow listen, I don’t want to be misunderstood, I’m not mean. I’m a kind hearted soul. But I don’t like to become too comfortable and I don’t think other people should be allowed to become too comfortable either. Nothing changes when it is comfortable. Comfort is just a dressed up way of saying stagnant.

randies** was nearly at full roster today. Art least one of these persons I haven’t seen I over a year. Cephas has dementia and stopped coming with his wife. Later on she quit coming also. After the meeting we played canasta while some played bridge. There were boo domino players today.
fter Grandies**, ten of us went to Dairy Queen for lunch. I just wanted a chicken sandwich and ice tea. I was told that the combo was less expensive and came with fries. So that’s what I ordered. Ella had a better idea. She ordered the kids meal which had a smaller sandwich. small fries, drink, and ice cream. Clever woman.
was. glad to be home because the pain level was rising. However, it was too soon for the next round of meds. Sho I washed some dishes, pictured up the mess on my side of the bed and then vacuumed the bedroom, hallway, and bathroom. It was still 15 minutes before time for pills. I took them anyway then stretched out in the recliner to take a nap. I never managed to nap hectares of the pain.
efore I knew it, it was time to go to church for choir practice. This was our monthly party to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Because of the December schedules, that month’s birthdays and anniversaries were also being celebrated. Our anniversary is in December and my birthday its I January. I ate two servings of spaghetti. One for each month. We practiced four hymns, two of which I had never heard. Then it was home to await time for the next medications.
