Wishing I was in Maui, but dealing with being here

The Last…

two weeks have flown by. Last week was the busiest. Sunday I went to the memorial service for Betty Harvey, my dear friend Pam’s mom. The Harvey’s lived on our street and Pam and I were friends from about age 8. Mrs. Harvey passed away from cancer. She was a true Southern lady. Worked all week, had Session meeting Tuesday, pre Thanksgiving dinner at Jan’s Wednesday, dinner at the Muindi home Thursday and Yuletide at Montalvo with Kathleen and Carrie Friday morning. Whew, glad I didn’t have to get up early today. This afternoon I’m going to Melia’s  senior recital and then have a nail appointment at 4pm. Whew!!

The dinner at the Muindi’s was a surprise. They invited me and Sylvia. I wasn’t sure what the occasion was or why. When I arrived the home smelled great with food cooking. Tim and Serena were very relaxed. When I heard someone in the kitchen Serena said to go check it out. The have a Personal Chef!! She comes 5 days a week and fixes dinner for them. Serena said that it is less expensive (and better) than what they were spending/eating out the year before. It was wonderful. Best of all, I savored the entire meal and was the last one to finish my entree. That never happens.

Patty Johnson emailed me this week and asked if I’d like to go to Cancun and Playa Del Carmen next June. How fast do you think I said “Si”. Had trouble using my MAC to make reservation on Mexicana Airlines. Remembered that I had the same problem a couple of years ago. Went to Kathleen’s and used her PC and “Ole” I’m going to Mexico June 19-July 3.

I’m seriously considering taking my Social Security next April. I don’t want to do the Electrolux demo’s anymore and would be able to cut down my SLT time to about 20 hours a week. I’ll send for my birth certificate (can’t find it anywhere) and then make an appointment with SS in January.

We’re going to Patty and Mrk’s for Thanksgiving. Marianne and son Max as well as Rachael will be there. Kathleen had also invited us but since Marianne is coming and we don’t have many chances to see her we decide to go to Brentwood to see her. We’ll have Christmas with Kathleen’s family probably at Brian’s.

Well, off to watch a little football and then start getting ready for the day.
