A little this and that on Wednesday!

It is almost time for me to have my Angioplasty procedure.I have to drink some medicine the Dr. prescribed for me to protect my kidneys. This stuff taste terrible!!
I knew I was in trouble when I talked to the nurse on the phone this morning and she said, "You might want to take this with juice or soda pop to get the bad taste out of your mouth!!! I have had one dose! She wasn't kidding! Pretty bad! I just drank it down fast!

I don't know about you all but I'm ready for the election to be over! All the adds on TV,continually, whew! Missouri is a swing state, so we get a extra dose of these!!! If you listen to both sides you wouldn't think any one was fit to govern!! From local election to the national one!! They make each other sound so bad!! I wish they didn't do negative adds. But I will be exercising my privilege to vote come November 4th.

After reading about the delicious food our Canadian friends were serving for their Thanksgiving over the weekend, I saw this icon and thought wow! I am ready for this holiday! I think Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays going! No pressure just fun to be with family and friends!

Here is a nice award from Denise at Shortybears Place. Thank you so much! I have passed this out before but I want you to have it too! If you are on my side bar Please grab this and be my friend!

You are in my prayers for your angioplasty -- hope it all goes well!

Of course, since I don't watch television, I don't SEE all the adds (one more reason to be thankful) - but I DO hear alllllllllll my friends and family TALK about them and COMPLAIN about them and it really makes me wonder how either one of them got elected to their PRESENT positions! If they are UNfit to govern - then WHY ARE THEY???

I LOVED hearing your take on Thanksgiving - Thanksgiving is my LEAST favorite holiday of the year. I used to dread it because it meant all of Dennis' relatives were coming... but now his last remaining relative LIVES with us - so that's no excuse anymore! But I don't like Turkey (except the lunch meat kind) and I don't like COOKING anymore... so I'd be HAPPY and THANKFUL if we could have cold-cut sandwiches and just sit around and play games or something! LOL! To ME that is cozy and something worth being thankful about!

You are in my prayers for this procedure. I pray that all goes well and your health will be improve.
I appreciate your sweet comments and support. I am blessed.
I agree with you about the political ads. They are awful. I'm going to vote but I will be glad when we don't have to listen to anymore of them.

Denise said...

My prayers are with you sweetie, love you.

I am with you on the ads and the election! You can;t really tell anything from the ads because they all sound the same to me.

I hope your procedure goes well! I will be praying. Let us hear from you when you can.

I am keeping you in my prayers for your angioplasty. I can imagine how bad that stuff tastes. Yuck!

Our election was Oct. 14th. I'm glad it's over. It cost the Canadian taxpayers 300-million and the same leader got in with the same minority he had on the 13th, just a few extra seats. What a waste of time and money. It would have better used for health care or to feed those living in poverty.

I also love Thanksgiving, but this one was a bummer for me. Now I have to wait an entire year for another one. LOL But of course there's Christmas, which is my favorite holiday.

Take care. I will be thinking of you and hope one of the girls will post and let us know how you are.

Blessings and hugs,

keeping you in my prayers.

We are a swing state too here in PA. You are so right about the adds.

I stopped by to tell you that you're in my thoughts dear Carolyn. Hope all will go without problems evolving. Continued prayers from me.

Y'know? I've been tasting and smelling pumpkin spice for weeks now...I bought a 'cinnamon' broom at the store the other day, and it's scenting the house up wonderfully...I want Thanksgiving to come too!!!

As for the negative ads, I 'tune them out'. LOL
