This friendly little duck was just outside the grocery store begging for treats! People feed them all the time! The store has a popcorn machine and the popcorn is free! Most of it goes to the ducks! (: It is a bit scary because the ducks go between the river and the store! That is dangerous because they have to cross Main Street to get to the store and then back to their nests down on the river! Thankfully, most people know that they cross there and will watch out for and stop for them! I always worry about the people who go through that aren't from Cheboygan and don't know to watch for the ducks! A few years back they put a stop light in there for traffic reasons, but it slows people down for the ducks too!
Monday Kay and I got our tree up and are almost done decorating it and the living room! For the first time since my ex left, we got out our ornament bin and are sorting through them! Some we are going to use! Some we are going to pack away and keep! Some we are going to give away! Finally, some we are going to throw away! I always have some kind of "project" going on!
I went on an AMAZING date last night! The weather was scary though! We weren't sure that I was going to be able to come home! It was terrifying at times! My date is a really good and experienced driver and we made it without spinning out or going in the ditch! We are (today) in the 3rd day of a horrible winter storm! We have gotten about 12 inches of snow and the wind is blowing like crazy! Andy had to come and get me this morning in his 4 wheel drive! I would not be able to make it into his driveway with my car! Plus my car is buried under all of that snow! It will take me a good hour to get it dug out and the snow and ice off it! That is on the agenda for tomorrow because Kay and I have doctor appointments in Cheboygan! I hope and pray the storm is over by then! I hate driving at night in good weather! It will be dark on our way home! Our appointments are at 4pm! It gets dark at about 5pm! I am worried if you can't tell ! Does anyone want to volunteer to come and drive us? (:
I also wanted to let you know that my Uncle Lou (username: unclelou) is having heart problems again! He went into A-fib and his defibrillator went off! That has to feel awful !!!! My mom took him to the doctor, and they did some tests! He needs to go on a new medication, but if he were to be allergic to it, the reaction could be deadly! His throat would swell and close up, not allowing him to breath! So, he has to spend 3 days in the hospital starting tomorrow while he takes the new medicine! That way doctors can respond immediately if has the reaction! In the meantime, they let him go home, but he can't do anything! If he were to get a cut, he would bleed out! His blood is way too thin! If he is allergic to this new medication, he will have to have a Catheter Oblation! That is very dangerous! So PLEASE keep my dear Uncle in your thoughts and prayers, or whatever it is that you do! The doctor has told him in the past that he is living on borrowed time! He has a very bad heart ! We want to ask every power in the universe or outside the universe to help him out! We can't lose him!!!! His son is still in school and needs his dad!
I hope you are all warm and cozy!
