and delivers kolaches to the Texas Legislature..I swear, next year I'm going..It just looks like a lot of fun.
The Main Street meeting last night was successful..only about 40 people showed up, but we were all eager and and enthusiastic about making changes for West, to boost the economy and beautify our little town. Anyone that was anyone was there...and of course me..Still don't know what I was doing there, except I love my little town and would like to see some changes made. The great thing is ...we all made up lists of what we wanted to accomplish and have done and we were all on the same page..We all want to make the main street of West(which is Oak St.) the actual entrance into town to be more appealing and easier to travel. Sidewalks, benches, flowers, etc. We all want to renovate the old theater(which is rumored to be on the list and is really beautiful inside) into something along the lines of a live theater..I think dinner theater would be a great idea and have mentioned it before. But who knows. We all want to make the town more Czech..have business hours the same..Maybe actually stay open till 7P.M. instead of closing up shop at 5P.M..Only business's that stay open after 5 are the grocery stores, dollar stores and the video store. We'd like a museum above the city hall, which has lots of room and is not being used. The library has lots of Czech heritage stuff that no one gets to see, as it's scattered around in the library(and lets face it, we could use the room).So we got a lot of ideas out and the Main Street team is going to compile it and come up with a plan. We all want a Farmers Market, and if you will look at the picture of the high school, there is a huge grassy field and it's not being used for anything. I think they could get the students to plant a green garden there, and be responsible for the planting and care of the garden and be allowed to use the money they earn for 'what ever.' We all go back tomorrow at 5:30 P.M. and I'm anxious to see what they come up with. I also think we should tap some of the rich Czech Americans for some help. Like Martina Navratilova for a start. Let her be a part of it and ask her to the Westfest and be the Parade Marshall.
So there is lots to do and I plan on being right smack in the middle of it..I'll keep you updated.
Went to the Dr. yesterday and got blood taken and blood pressure was waaaaaay up...So he gave me script for blood pressure meds. Said that was what was messing with my blood sugar and giving me the head aches. Plus I have gained 4 lbs. fuckity.It's from not working..plus worrying about Annie I was not eating as well as I should have been...Eating bad things..maybe even a bowl of Blue Bell every now and then.
When the nurse tried to get blood she couldn't get it form my right arm so dug around in the left arm..Last night after Babs and I got back from the House of Satan, I noticed that my left arm was all bruised and had a lump of blood next to where she had drawn the blood. It didn't look any better today so went to see Dr. E and he asked me if I took aspirin and said every morning. He said that was why ..it makes the blood thin and instead of clotting up..it bled out...Eek. Said to put ice on it and it would be ok.
Dropped by Family Dollar the other day to get my water and the new manager had quit and we had another one..I know her from speaking to her on the phone when I worked there. I haven't spoke to Inky yet to find out what happened to the guy. This makes ............I don't know..7 managers in a little over 3 years..? heheheee...
Last night after I got back from the Main Street meeting it was almost 7:30 and I usually eat at 6:30 P.M. and knew it would take 20-30 minutes to throw a dinner together, so I stopped at Jerry's Chicken and got some tenders. When I walked in I had to pee so didn't pet Annie, just ran by her into the bathroom. I put the chicken on the hall table..I'm sitting on the pot and Annie comes prancing in...listing a little but by Goddess, she was running..She smelled that chicken..ha..So I would say that she is doing much much better. I need to take her back for another check up and get her shots.
I'm going to make this short as I'll have an up date on the Thursday night meeting too. Plus for some reason, I'm sleepy..watched Lost and it was an hour long recap...feck!
