Opened the sliding glass door, and it is 43F outside, and I have the central fan going, and it feels *great*! I also have a cup of coffee going (which is almost finished) and I am wide awake. I woke up this morning adrenalized and not groggy at all, ready to rock and roll, lol.nnOK, finished the coffee, am damn near *wired* now, and am ready for the day. At 10:00 I text my therapist to confirm the appointment at 12:00 (which might happen at 1:00, depending on her circumstances (#WFH, lol)), and then after the therapy appointment, I will go to Schnucks and pick up a few things. Including facial razors, because even though I shaved the mustache last night, I need to shave the *rest* of my face today – looks a tad goofy right now. I will also get iced coffee at that time.nnThe fire extinguishers (the Xmas gift for the moms) are arriving tomorrow instead of today, due to a delay at FedEx in Kentucky. I will be at the O’Family get together when it arrives here (more than likely), so it will just have to sit on my porch until I get home. The other items have not shipped out, yet.nnSpeaking of O’Family get togethers, there is going to be an O’Family Christmas at my cousin’s house later this month, but I don’t think I will be able to make it, due to the fact that it is going to be *very* crowded in their house due to the amount of people, and would likely be more anxiety-inducing than fun, so I will skip that. The P Family Christmas (incl lunch at Frankie G’s and then dessert at the ‘rents thereafter), I will *definitely* attend that, as it is a much more low-key, calm experience.nnBack later
