We are in the middle of a snowstorm! It is piling up right now! Depending on which weather report you listen to, we can get 10 to 14 inches here in my area!! I guess I don't mind so much because I don't have anywhere I have to go or anything I really have to do. Chelsea stranded herself at her boyfriend's house on purpose last night so I am all alone. She didn't have to work and thought it would be fun to be stuck for two days with him. I think it would have been nice to have two days of "daughter time", but I understand as she is someone who has to keep going, and going, and going. She doesn't sit still. I didn't at her age either.
I have had a pretty strange week. I haven't been able to taste very well or even not at all for quite a number of days. It is mostly on the right side of my tongue, but sometimes it is the whole tongue. It has been numb. My first thought when I was experiencing this was that it was neurological and it concerned me a bit. I called my neurologist's office and the nurse told me she thought it could be a dental problem. Hmm...? I just so happen to have a dental appointment on Tuesday, so they will do x-rays to see if I have an abscess. I don't have any pain?! Do you know how weird it is to not be able to taste your food? You just don't want to eat! It isn't a way to lose weight, either, because you keep tasting food trying to get something to "fulfill" your taste. I don't know if this makes sense, but that is how it is working for me. So, now I am eating for texture. Weird, weird, weird. If I don't have an abscess, they are going to do a CTScan before my appoinment with my neurologist on the 31st to make sure everything is fine. I think everything is okay. I wasn't so sure the other day when I was tipping over and actually broke my TV!! Yep, a new TV!! I fell into it and broke it. I can get so clumsy at times. So I stayed in bed because I was spending a day cleaning up messes after myself--dropping drinks and food and such. Some days my coordination is just very "off" and I walk into things and drop things. Most days I am not this clumsy, but on thosebad days I just want to hide, and I do!
I have been slow visiting journals this week and I hope you understand. I am sure you all do, as you are all wonderful!! Hey, I have a question..my mind is wandering all over the place..flight of ideas! Why is it that when it snows a lot of men HAVE TO go out and drive in it?? (Now, not all men, mind you...just a lot of them.) It doesn't matter how much snow it is. It could snow three feet and then they can turn to their wife and say, "I need to go check and see how the roads are. I will be right back. Do you need anything? Bread?" She is thinking, "Yeah, how about a sane husband! An alive husband!" So, why do you men do this? The road will be cleared in just a few hours! Or better yet, it will probably be melted in a day. Sit down and enjoy the day with your family! I am sitting here on my computer with the snow falling and I see all these cars out in it. There are many inches on the ground and only men are driving these vehicles. The roads ARE NOT clear! What are these men thinking? Check and see how the roads are??????? Hmmm...
