I got so far behind on blogger.  Right after my last post I got sick and was sick for a week.  Needless to say I spent a lot of time in the bathroom.  I called my doctor and she had no open time slots for me even though I called at 8am...and no slots for the next day either....the receptionist suggested I go to the walk in clinic.  So I did and they gave me three prescriptions and I got better.  Now I am looking for a new doctor!

Winter has been rough this year.  Last night around this time we had a complete white-out.  Lots of accidents.  I never saw snow come down so hard and fast!  I am not sure but we were suppose to get 6 inches.  I have seen 12 foot drifts right behind our apartment building.  At the mall there is a huge mountain of snow.  The snow plows go all night there, many times keeping me awake since I live right next to the mall.   Today school got delayed at 5:30 am and then at 7:30am I got another phone call that school was closed.  I'm not sure how many days this makes but I know we are over the allotted amount and will probably have to make it up at the end of the school year. Personally I think they should have cancelled mid winter break which was last Friday and Monday.  But I guess they have to stick to their calendar.

I completed one more painting and started another one.  The last one has been a real struggle and I had to set it aside for a while.  Maybe I chose too ambitious of a goal.  I have to complete 14 more and find a place to have the show...then send out invitations and do advertising.   But I won't give up....I'll just press on. 

Are you sticking to your goals or resolutions?  I only had two...give up my cane (which I did on New Year's eve) and the other was to paint twenty pictures for a private art show.  Now I have added other....exercise each day.  Today I was able to walk 10 minutes on the treadmill...I tried the exercise bike and was so disappointed that my new knee would allow me to pedal. Next week I will ask the surgeon about it.  It will already be my six month check up.  Hopefully he will offer me some kind of solution.
