Started a Facebook account

I wanted to find a way to stay in touch with my sister who doesn't have a phone. I guess I will be writing her and my brother letters instead, giving them my information. We really need to talk about that will.

In the meantime, I have good days and bad days. Yesterday I tried exercising on the rowing machine. It took me 15 minutes to figure out how to get down on it. I have pain in my knees and this was not easy, though I think my knee pain diminished afterward, so I will use it again today.

DD has a cold, so she didn't go to her morning class, and we haven't gotten her learner's permit. I guess that can wait until Monday, because tomorrow is going to be busy. DH and I are going to the DC Temple, and having lunch at the Hong Kong restaurant down in Kensington. I enjoy Chinese food, but I really wish they served it with brown rice. I wonder if there is a place that does that? Maybe in California, but probably not in MD.

I usually order something with shrimp in it. I think the Hong Kong has better food than most of the Frederick restaurants.

I still have a store trip to make to buy orange juice, chicken noodle soup, and english muffins. DD had a fever of 102 last night, so that's when I knew she was really ill. I just hope I don't catch it.

DD and I had lunch with our friend Stephanie on Wednesday. It was a little hard to pin down a restaurant as our tastes are different. We finally decided on Boston Market. The lunch was $5 specials, and I had a coupon for DD and I. I ordered the dark meat rotieserrie meal with mashed potatoes, and corn bread, no drink. I brought filtered water from home in my stainless steel cup. I left it out in the car though. DD had the chicken salad sandwich with mashed potatoes, and a drink. Stephanie had the rotiserrie chicken sandwich with a side of yams, and a drink. We had a nice little talk.

I think the next time we go, sometime next month, it will be at Wendy's maybe. I can enjoy a Mandarin chicken salad. Their dressing has changed and doesn't have high fructose corn syrup in it.

I really don't believe those advertisements for hfcs. They've really got to be kidding.
