Day Five - The Morning After

That title sounds much more interesting that this brief note. I forgot to post yesterday about the 5th day of my "vacation at the lodge". So here I am this morning staying with my commitment. I am not sure why I forgot, but Bob and I got to visiting last night and it just happened.

I started out taking a vitamin - after my breakfast - and then being sick most of the morning. Don't do that! I want to take vitamins, but I just can't keep them down. I read online about some solutions. Always take them with a meal - did that and that didn't work. Cut them in half - may try that next. Take them with dinner so you have had a day with food in your stomach - may try that next, but I have to get brave because I don't want to be sick in the night. The one solution I really liked - take children's Flintstones vitamins - just take 2 or 3 during the day. Maybe I will try that - I like the looks of the "gummy" kids vitamins so maybe that would be a solution.

I watched Oprah and the talking/texting on cell phones while driving episode. I wasn't going to watch it, because I was one of "those people" who feel I can do that on the limited basis I do. But, I happened to read Kay's blog, "myOlivebranch" here just before it came on in our time zone and decided I had better watch. I never text, but on occasion I do talk on the phone while driving. Wow - I won't do that anymore - ever. I will state my concern openly, with kindness, to those I love who do. And, I will not stop until they stop talking on the phone while driving.

And then, after supper, I watched the movie, "The Secret Life of Bees". It was a good movie. I loved the book when I read it a few years ago, but had just never gotten around to seeing the movie. I liked the book much better of course, but I did enjoy the movie. And then I came downstairs from my studio and got to talking with my Bob and forgot to write about Day Five of the vacation.

It was a good day.

And you were the reason I watched it - thank you. I have talked on the phone while driving for over 20 years - beginning with a company provided car phone in a company provided car to make us more efficient in answering customer requests years ago when I lived and worked in Denver. How many companies are still paying for cell phones for their employees to use for customer calls and texting - no worry about driving?
