I'm just hanging out at Java John's, today. I'll post a picture of the place. I may have mentioned it on my blog, earlier. The owner, Mary, is a great cook and she has very reasonable prices.
My sister visited me, last week. We went to "Christmas at Luther". It's a musical presentation at Luther
College. They put it on each year. Only Luther alumni, students, and faculty and staff can get tickets. I got four tickets, 2 for my sister and me, and 2 for Jim and Sherry Slitor. We had a great time. The show was awesome. We sat in the front row and afterwords, we went to Rubaiyat's for dinner.
Faye, my sister, went back to California last Friday. I failed her inspection of my apartment. I now have to clean and organized the place in case a woman actually sees the place again.
I've been talking with Loula once a week in a professional way. She's a counselor at the Behavioral Health Office. She got me to go for walks in the morning and make the commitment to go swimming at Luther in the morning. So far I haven't gone swimming at all, yet. It's getting a bit cold to walk in the morning, as well. I need to Just Do It. I've been trying to lose weight by reducing my food intake, but that hasn't done the job. I also need to increase my activity level. I'm afraid that the medications that I'm taking for schizophrenia is making me gain weight. Apparently it has that effect on a lot of people. I've probably reduced my food intake by 2/3s. I've been eating very little and I still can't seem to lose weight. I take vitamins but I'm afraid that I may not be getting the nutrition that I should.
I haven't been investing at all, lately. Between the car and my investments, I'm broke. I'm down to $300, that I'm going to try to buy a car with at an auction, this Saturday. It's another Voyager, but it's six years newer than mine. It has close to 200,000 miles on it so there is hope that it will go cheap. So much for storage locker auctions and investing.
I've got a metal detector but it's too late in the year to look for coins around here. The ground is frozen. I was thinking that I might find a way to go west and look for gold nuggets. Maybe I can work that out, somehow. I could sleep in the back of my van. Where there is a will there is a way. I'm back to reading books on the Law of Attraction. I never did get into tithing. I think that only works well for the churches.
Maybe I should try it, after all, things went to shit when I didn't tithe. Things were working quite well before I read that book. Maybe it jinxed me.
Maybe I'll get back, tomorrow
