Today is the official start of my Christmas vacation. Yesterday I discovered I had as many vacation hours as I could accumulate and in order to receive more hours I had to take some time off. I was already planning to take three days of vacation next week for the three non –holiday days of the week, but went ahead and decided to take today off as well.
I began my vacation with a doctor’s appointment. This morning the two stitches remaining in my foot were taken out and I now do not have to return to the foot doctor for another nine weeks. The foot is healing quite nicely and I plan to return to the gym on Monday. I’m able to walk a little better every day which is really great because walking is quite important, you know.
I haven’t updated you all on Charlie, my neighbor, in a while and you will be pleased to know that Charlie put up a Christmas tree and has it lit in his front window every night. It only has blue lights but looks really nice. I took Charlie some peanut butter fudge on Tuesday and he said he liked peanut butter so hopefully he will enjoy the fudge as well. These days Charlie is driving a mini-van and I’m not quite sure why. I thought the mini-van belonged to his girlfriend but maybe not. I have no idea where the Porche has gone; maybe he retired it for the winter.
Right now I am using the free internet access at Panera and after I leave here I will run by Target and Publix for medicine and groceries. Then it’s back home to do some Christmas cooking and some Christmas napping and maybe even some Christmas movie watching. I hope to update again before Santa arrives. I hope you all have a great Christmas Eve Eve!
