Was 74 degrees today.  Opened some windows and doors to let in the fresh air.

This January has not went by as slow as I thought it would. It is 21 degrees right now.  But we have had some real cold days, then one up in the upper 40's.  That helps.  I am already dreading Feb. The shortest month of the year always seems so long.

I do not even want to get out when it is cold.  I have been going to the nursing home every other day, and now I am sometimes missing 2 days in a row.  Mom is in sort of a fog, so she seems not to notice most of the time. She and the 2 ladies at her dining room table all seem to be fading.

I get lab Friday, am hoping my glucose reading is as good as it was 4 or 5 weeks ago.  Have been trying to eat all sugar free sweets. Although sometimes I have to cheat and eat one of Jim's cupcakes.

My life is pretty dull.  Watching moves, doing my Ebay, and reading, and that just about sums up most of my days and nights.

Since I cannot click my heels together like Dorothy and wish winter away, guess I will just take it one day and a time and let it slide by.

This has been a great Ebay selling month.  Took 8 packages to the P.O. Monday. Think it was six the Monday before.  Have one that needs packing right now.

Nice to have some large number PO runs instead of one or two at a time.

Looking forward to Spring with garage sales and auctions.

I love my Ebay hobby.

As of today, Jan 22,, my count for the month is 21 items....Whoo Hoo.  Nine more days in the month so the number could grow.
Final count of items sold in Jan was 25.  Best month since I began a few years ago!

January is going slow as usual. Know it will slow down even more as Feb and March come along.

I wish I was a winter person, but I hate cold weather.

Run winter, hurry, hurry..........let Spring ride in.

2013 is up and running.  Had a snow on New Years Eve so it was a pretty New Years Day.

Jackie and Jesse came over for a few hours in the afternoon during her momentary recoup from her  cold/flu. She had a "relapse" today. But had a good visit.

Today I went for my annual "gyn" exam.  Discussed all the TVM ads on TV about lawsuits and recalls.  Found out the one in my procedure a couple years or so ago was not recalled and is still in use.  Now I will no longer wonder if my mesh is going to blow out....

Congress dodged a long fall over the Fiscal Cliff, but they are still in for a long hall. So we will be hearing that on TV for the rest of the year.  I do not know why I even listen to political news.

I fixed my 2013 good memories jar and hope I will have some good memories in it when I dump them out next New Years Eve.

I finally got my holiday eating binge stopped. Now need to get back into the habit of exercising regular. And back to the Chi Machine for 10 minutes 2 times a day as it really makes me feel better and keeps my ankles from being puffy.

I not like Jan Feb and Mar so hope they go by fast.  Maybe I can just dance through them and it will be spring.
