It was just really ALL good. A meal and a day I look forward to all year. I think mainly I really like the fact we don’t have to go anywhere. A day we stay at home, eat, lolly around, and are not expected to do much. You can let your guard down, breathe, not have to accomplish fifty zillion tasks. It’s all about the meal and being home and gathering whatever family can gather.
Signed up for Discovery Plus – What a Deal!
Was able to watch a few shows yesterday. And I must tell you that I went ahead and signed up for Discovery Plus with their .99 per month deal for 90 days and it goes to 4.95 a month after that. Was too good of a deal. That was where so many of my shows went. It was getting harder and harder to watch things on cable on demand. And Sister Wives moved to Discovery also. I can’t watch the current season unless I go there. Plus the Magnolia crew is on there (Chip and Jo Jo) and HGTV and all the house shows and food network shows like Pioneer Woman – she’s even in a Christmas movie on there – watched that yesterday. There is all kinds of history and blue planet kind of shows. And Bindi Erwin and her family have a show on there about the zoo/kingdom they do. There is some science stuff on there if you are into crime, investigation, and forensic stuff. I think it’s even worth the $4.96 per month. So yeah, I signed up for that.
Mom’s Ready to Go
So Mom is ready to go – almost. I was collecting up my Fall Decor and noticed a stack over in the corner by the door staged and ready. As I type this she is packing up the rest. We are waiting for George to get back from a “secret” Black Friday mission. We may never see him again if he is in all that mess. I’m not sure what all he’s getting into. He’s not supposed to be getting anything much as I already have my phone and also will be getting Final Cut Pro. I need to shower though, grab some leftover Thanksgiving for breakfast and pull up the car and start packing things in the car.
Putting UP Fall Decor
So the fall decor is going back in the box and we’ll be dragging the Christmas stuff out later today after we get Mom settled over there. We also will take her on a big grocery run, if there is anything left in the stores after this week. I heard that milk was gone – as if there was a major snow storm, lol.
I’ve managed to do most of our laundry already. So that is good. Christmas cards are done! We’ll be dropping those to the post office on the way to Mom’s.
The TMJ is still there but not causing too many issues. I’ll probably have to see to that after our trip if it’s not cured by then. Will be interested to see if going back to my bed helps any or if it’s the angle I’ve been sleeping in. I think it is tension mainly and I catch myself clenching my teeth when I’m trying to do things, straining my neck or holding it certain ways at times but my back has been hurting too along with shoulders so I think it’s still one of those perfect storm type of things where the alignment is off, the stress is on, and I’m older and not able to bounce back as fast. Possibly degenerative type things or maybe even an auto immune type of thing. My doctor has said he would test for some things if I wanted to go down that path of finding out what is wrong when I’ve had muscle issues before. But nutrition had kept things in check. After all we have been through this year, no amount of nutrients can keep me in check, lol lol lol.
Word Press Alerts
So someone mentioned yesterday that the alerts are not coming through again. I need to know if it is because of email or the word press app alert – coming through your device? I just read that sometimes the email alerts don’t work if I have a stand alone website “nameofblog.com” vs “nameofblog.wordpress.com” as I use a google domain to be able to have a standalone name. That was important to me. As they tighten security, sometimes the emails are not going through. There are so many things that could be making it go wrong. I don’t know if it is on my end or your end. But it will help in my research to know if you are getting them or not or if it is an email alert or an app alert. So I know what I’m trying to fix.
Meanwhile in Texas
And you know my HEART is in TEXAS right now. It’s a shame we couldn’t have been there!
