Here it is almost 2 pm and still grey and overcast. I m trying to be cheerful as I attempt to mylot but I see in the mirror a grim scowl. Darn now everyone I meet will be going "are o kay? Are you okay? You look I dont know but are you okay?" i know that they really do care but o it gets old. I am trying to smile now knowing a storm is n its way here by tomorrow supposedly. We would be totally green if all the muffed forecasts had really been rains. So the sun is not shining and my shoulder aches b ut Im okay just need to cheer up more.I am telling myself a lot of you mylotters are having cold icy weather with lots of snow and glare ice Roads are treacherous and dangerous to drive on.There I do feel better as Im grateful for no really bad weather here . My lunch was not too bad.We had a m eat sandwich of either pork or beef as the sauce camouflaged the taste of the tough meat so I was not sure but ick i got a mouthful of fat yuck. I do not like to eat fatty meats at all as my cholesterol is perfect and I want to keep it that way so I have one less pill to have to take. 8 pills in he morning and three at dinner are surely enough for one person. The macaroni salad was great and the red jello was okay.As a diabetic over the years I have become a bit tired of jello as the old cooks gave us jello twice a day for some weeks. That did become tiresome after awhile. Well the sun is not going to shine so thats okay . I did not get a chance to read the menu for dinner. I hope its something that will let me save some for my snack later. F or the last several days my table mates have given me half of their un anted sandwiches and I thus avoided the stand in line for snacks in the evening. My son is coming to see me this evening so hope I do not have to stand in that line for long

Sorry to hear about the crappy weather. Some MyLotters probably are driving in blizzards. Finally we got some sun although only for a few minutes it seemed. I always try to remind myself that others have it worse when Im feeling down, and I feel it really does help.

I'm more bored than grumpy. It's been raining all day (a good thing) but it means I can't sneak in a cycle. I did two progress notes, talked to my Uncle, played some mandolin...and then felt unmotivated.
