The Rolling Stone.

Marilyn and I just watched a show on HBO about Rolling Stone -- which ended with the death of John Lennon. Which of course made us both start weeping and weeping. I can't even type about it right now. Just too brutal.

Marilyn stayed home today, not feeling at all well. Her IBS-d flare up was awful and made her miserable. I was still feeling the effects of my IBS-c flare up from yesterday. We both feel it's very unfair when we're making so many efforts to eat well and get more rest! But it's absolutely something about this time of year, whether it's allergies or something else.

We barely ate all day, as neither of us felt much like it.

We did both shower and wash our hair so we could take the OLD Christmas tree down to the office. I've been saving it since we got the new one, as Christine had asked for it to be the 'new' tree for the festival. There had been some talk that we had a good one, but Wanda phoned today and told me she did, indeed, want it. It has one 'bad' branch that is easy to tie up (we did it for years). But the main thing is it looks very real and has the lights already on it, making it much easier to use. So I managed to pack it (two big boxes) into the car and we drove it down. Fortunately it wasn't raining!!!

We need to get to the pharmacy to pick up meds. But we didn't feel like going out today.

We watched "Help!" again today. Such a fun film.

Marilyn missed her hair appointment, but her hair does look great, so... But she wants to get it done soon. And wants me to get mine done, too.

I have no idea what the heck is going on with my computer! I'm typing this, and there's a damn delay! I get that I type pretty fast when I touch type, but still...

Sweet dreams!
