Feeling great--at least today.

The sun woke me at 7:15 and the cats nosed me until I got up at 7:30.  I felt great and remembered that I had salmon patties last night for supper. LOL

I had lots to do today and I did it all in fine order.  I needed to go into Brighton and with all the Main Street construction going on, I decided to go in the back way.  I came out on the side street by the Meijer grocery store, got my groceries--I had my list, up to the gas station and then remembered how hard it was to get on the main street if I went out the front drive.

So I went out the back way, down two blocks, then up to a traffic light and when it turned green, made a left turn on to the main drag.  Up another two blocks to Michael's on my right, got my floss and instead of going further up to take a small side road out of that mall, I doubled back to the light I came in on.

Turned right and right on homeward bound.  I stopped at the Print Shop (right turn) to get two pedigrees printed out and then home.  Unloaded all the groceries and put them away.

The only mis-step I had was when I got home, I pulled into my driveway, then remembered all the groceries in the trunk, so backed out and up a bit and backed in to make the trunk nearer the porch.

I had kind of mapped out my trip in my mind with mostly right turns involved and everything was as smooth as silk.  

I feel good about all of it.  Oh, by the way, I had roast beef and a baked potato for supper tonight.  HAH!


  1. Going to Meijer always cheers me up. LOL

  2. "Mapped out my trip, in my mind" -smile- Still concerned, but working on, the memory thing, I see. Well, that's good. You proved that you can do a mind-map and accomplish it, still. Hooray for you!

    We had an all-veggie meal last night, which included a twice baked potato! Little salad, pan "fried" mushrooms and onion, and carrots. Yum.... And the bit of cheddar cheese, melted on top of the potato, gave a wee bit of protein.

  3. I made one right off I10, a left turn off the interstate, a right turn home. BAM
    And, it only took four hours. LOL


  4. Your cats nosed you ? My sons 70 lb pit jumped on me at 4:30..straddled me and began to lick my face off. Then he snuggled up as close as he could and put his ( at least ! ) 20 lb head on my neck to be sweet and cuddly. Then my CAT decided to swat at his head...except my FACE was within that vacinity! ERGH!! Time to jump off...throw cat into closet, go to the bathroom, make him move down the bed somewhat...

    I love my youngest son but I can't wait until he finds a place ( it's been one month since he moved in after his dad died and I am trying to be patient :)

    Anyway...when your cats nose you tomorrow think of me and be happy you just have the cats :)

  5. Isn't it wonderful when errand forays go off without a hitch, thanks to a highly organized mind? I make every effort to economize when out and about as well. I like the mental challenge. Now if everyone would just get out of my way, haaahaha. Your supper of meat and tater sounds delicious. xoxo
