Final Quarter


I restarted this with only a quarter done.  Now I have to just finish the final quarter.

My spending has only been $19 total for the month so far. 

Life has fallen apart for three of my five friends.  Two of their mothers have been diagnosed with dementia.  Also an adult son is being tested for liver cancer and she is waiting for the results of the biopsy.  She is a wreck.  Within a few days the news reported that reflux medications were causing dementia, and his mother hasn't taken those meds, but his dad has, and in large quantities, and he is also showing signs of dementia.  So I had my friend watch the news report online to get the same info I saw.  The news said that you were 44% likely to get dementia if you were taking the reflux medication and were over age 74.  So if you take, or know somebody taking those medications, they should be aware, and probably stop ASAP.  It was not just one brand - it was the medication in several brands named.

Filling In

Filling in, but not a clue if things will meet up yet.

I still have not figured out why photos will not show up on my computer, but will show up viewing the page from a kindle -  Grrrrrrrr....  But other Blogger sites do that for me too, not just my own page.  But now it is doing it from both computers.  Again, Grrrrrr...

On the budget front, I have spent just $15 this month.  Not a stitching budget, but total money that has left my purse for groceries, gasoline, shopping anything.  Can't last till end of month, but today there is snow on the driveway, today the budget is safe.

Trying to play less on the computer - the day just disappears.  House of Cards starts again March 4, there will be binge watching and stitching then.  The heck with superbowls, give me a whole season of that or Orange is the New Black - and my butt is happily glued to the sofa.  Orange restarts June 17 if you are marking your calendars.

Before and Today...


This was the project that I went back to stitching.  Above is a day or so after I remembered I should take a new photo....

This is where I am at as of today, Thursday.

Final report on the January $200 budget - spent $432.  No excuses.  So far for this month - I have spent nothing, and that won't last.

I have been listening to the court hearing updates today from the first Serial podcast - and the tweets.  And also some of the opinions in the Making a Murderer updates.  And The Jinx... and I am waiting to get the audiobook from the library about The Jinx, and I did get The Staircase dvd, and I had watched all the West Memphis Three videos...  I have always found true crime books interesting.  I will always listen to John Douglas opinion about a case - he is an FBI profiler, and I have read most all of his books.  But what some of the other profilers say - I know is clearly not well thought through, or not logical - and that drives me crazy.  But I do try to listen to other opinions, and points of view and try to see it from all angles.  I don't have to agree with them, and I don't have to convert them to my opinion.  Maybe I just find flawed logic really interesting.
