Well, there are some things I’ve been really hesitant about writing, such as my mood the past few weeks, and my inability to focus on work. 2-4 hours of work a week will not pay the bills. But it has seemed like no matter what I did, or how much I slept, I was not able to focus…

Had a doctor’s appointment today for my annual checkup, and lo and behold… its not my mood – its my thyroid. After being well controlled for several years on the same dosage of thyroxin, suddenly, it was not… and so, yes, I was feeling foggy brained and not thinking clearly, and more anxious than I wanted to be… the doctor is not sure why, perhaps the stress of everything has physically thrown the gland off… no matter, I’m on a higher dosage now, and should be feeling back to normal (what is normal anymore) in a few days…

So I came home, and did some cooking. Roy came over this evening for dinner. It was nice having him over. We watched a movie (March of the Penguins), and then I gave him some of his dad’s stuff that he wanted, and returned some things that we’d borrowed. An altogether nice evening.

Tomorrow I”m going to a seminar sponsored by the Widowed Persons Support group in Grand Rapids. Rich had been in this group after his first wife died, somehow, I think he would have wanted me to go as well. So that is my news for today. Thankful for family, good doctors, and a lovely early Autumn day.
