Big Disappointment This Month

I thought I was going to have my Social Security hearing the 3rd week of this month, but I didn't. So I have been alittle more depressed then usual. I called my doctor to see if he would increase my depression medicine. I haven't heard anything, yet. I called my councilor yesterday, & she suggested I get out & to something soothing. So my caregiver & I went out to lunch today. Then we went to the local Michael's & I bought sme floss to send to the person I'm suppose to for a Christmas exchange. I'm going out tomorrow to have a patial perm done at one of the local beauty schools. For those that don't know, a partial perm is where you hae just part of your hair permed. I'm going to have my front & sides done. When I got home from lunch I had some waiting for me. I got my first Christmas card today. It was from the person who was to send to me for the Christmas exchange. She cross stitched the front of the card, & enclosed a skein of SILK floss. It is my first silk floss. It is a very pretty color. It is from Dinky Dyes, & there is the number 25 & the word Ruby under the number. When I showed it to a friend, she said it looked almost like a candy cane. As soon as I can, I'll scan it & post a picture of it & the card. Having lunch out with someone, & getting my card & floss really brightened my day. I'm still alittle frustrated about the social security thing, but not as bad. My cat seems to know I'm feeling down. Ever since I got back from lunch & shopping, sh has been on my lap, or on the table close to me & purring away to me.
Now for something I learned from the sales lady at the craft store. If you are having trouble with ants, sprinkle some ground Cinnamon on the counter close to the wall, & sme on the floor by the baseboards. That will send the ants running. Also if you put peppermint, spearmint, &/or wintergreenmint, not the gum. Use a leaf of the plant. This will keep the mice out of your cabinets. Well it is getting late, & time for my bedtime meds, & snack. I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.
