THIS IS A PIC OF THE TEA ROOM WHEN MUM AND I VISITED MY SISTER RECENTLY IN WINDSOR, ONTARIO. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT MY SISTER, DORIS IN PINK, MY MOTHER (69), MY NEICE, AMANDA (DORIS'S DAUGHTER AND THEN ME. MISSSING FROM THIS PIUC IS MY OTHER NEICE MELISSA. I THINK SHE TOOK THE PIC. WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME.
THE TIME IN WINDSOR WENT FAST. WE WERE AWAY FOR 11 DAYS. WE DROVE FOUR OF THOSE DAYS TO GET THERE AND BACK. SO IN THE 7 DAYS THERE WE HAD A BALL AND WENT STEADY. DID WE SHOP?? OH, YEAH. BUT I WAS GOOD I SHOPPED MAINLY FOR XMAS GIFTS.
I ARRIVED HOME ABOUT 3:30 ON SUNDAY AND HUBBY HAD COOKED A LOVELY TURKEY DINNER COMPLETE WITH DRESSING. IT WAS DELICIOUS. HE IS SUCH A SWEETIE.
THEN CAME MONDAY AND THE BOTTOM DROPPED OUT. I WENT INTO A DEPRESSION AND I DID NOT LEAVE THE HOUSE ALL WEEK. I EVEN CANCELLED 4 APPOINTMENTS. NO THAT'S A LIE, I WENT TO THE GROCERY STORE ONCE TO PICK UP A FEW ITEMS. I'D RATHER BE BEAT WITH A STICK THAN GO GROCERY SHOPPING!!
I AM GOING TO TRY AND GO OUT TODAY FOR A FEW THINGS BUT NOT FOR LONG. I AM NOT REALLY IN THE MOOD TO DEAL WITH CROWDS OR MEET PEOPLE. I KNOW I AM NOT IN GOOD SHAPE WHEN I ISOLATE. MY NATURAL TENDENCY IS TO BE A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY.
SO, NAOMI, YOU CAN STOP FRETTING NOW AND THREATENING TO GROUND ME...LOL!!
I'LL TRY TO GET CAUGHT UP WITH JOURNALS AND I'LL KEEP YOU POSTED ON MY CONDITION.
YOUR TRAVELING PAL, DEBBIE

Not sure if I am right or not but it does seem like you fall apart when you are gone for a while, maybe I am mistaken. It is cool that you had a fun time. I hope you feel better soon. I don\'t have to ground you since it sounds like you have grounded yourself, unfortunetly is is for a bad reason. Relax and take you time, you will get caught up and home when you are ready. Hubby is so sweet for making dinner. How cool to just sit done and eat. Oh yah Happy Sweetest Day whether you celebrate or not. NJ xo

Sounds like you had a great time visiting your sister. I think traveling like that wears us out more and puts our chemicals in a scream. We get off our routine and I really think it makes a difference even though we are doing something positive. Your body and mind are telling you to rest. Take care of you sweetie....xo
