Took Anne's Class @ Slimmons

Made it through. It was easier than I thought it would be because Anne is very tuned into the fact that I am not well, and there weren't very many students in the room. It's a lot easier to do what I have to do when I'm not also worrying about bumping into - or being bumped by - other students.

There were six of us there, plus Anne. All of the women were professional; some still are. They're highly opinionated and vocal, offering opinions on everything social and political even during the class. Interesting.

For breakfast, I had two pieces of dry rye toast early. I know, bad choice. But then I grabbed a tangerine and a pack of dried cranberries to eat on the way down. Did you know that Trader Joes packages it's dried cranberries in single-serving sizes now? I find it easy to manage my dried fruit when it's pre-measured for me, so I don't have to go without this year.

Anyway, by the time class was done, I was hungry, and had some of the roast chicken on a sandwich when I got home. I need to have a little fruit, then I'm done until dinner.

I bought enough vegetables to make up a double-batch of my chicken soup. Too tired to cut them up, though. Maybe later; maybe tomorrow. But soon. Half of the appeal of my soup is that the vegetables are so fresh, and if I let it go too long, they won't be anymore.


  1. I'm so glad you made it through Anne's Class. Hope you are feeling a bit better today.

  2. You amaze me Laura. You are driven!! You put me to shame.
