October 8, 2010 Friday
Do you ever wake up and everything you have planned for the day goes south. I ate lunch and went out to start the lawn mower to cut grass. Dead, would not start so I put the charger on it, 3 hours later dead, so I need a new battery. I came in the house and the phone is ringing so I answer it and it is the bank to let me know there is activity on my charge card, did I do it. No I haven't been on line yet and this happen 2 minutes ago. So, the card gets froze and a new one will be sent to me with a new number by Wednesday. Great, since I was going to pay my bowling locker fee, get a bowl for my GD and buy groceries tomorrow. I don't carry much cash and only use my charge card and pay it off the next month. Then the tires on the car are low and I have to get that taken care of. Just one thing after another.
Tonight the young lady that is going to do the work in my yard came hunting and got a deer. I told her about the lawn mower and she is going to cut the grass for me tomorrow. She has one of those big boys that can cut my yard in 2 hours where it takes me 5. She is going to cut all the shrubbery, trees and get the yard ready for the mulching. It is a lot of work.
I called the air condition/heater gentleman and received a call from the gas company that they would check the system out because the man killed himself.
I hate to call anyone new because so far the heater man, the man that put our garage door on and the man that sanded our living room floor in our old house all killed themselves. I feel terrible about them and I hope no more do the same thing that are associated with me.
Not a really good day, so I will put it away and wake up to a brighter, better day.
All have a lovely weekend and I will catch you tomorrow. Smile and be happy.

October 7,2010 Thursday
Had to go to the eye Dr. today and of course it was early but I was glad to get the appointment. The Dr. is very well known and one of the best in his field. They started to check my eyes for glasses and I stopped that real fast. No glasses just find out what is wrong. They had diluted my eyes with 3 different drops and when I had to read the letters the right eye could only read the first line. The left read 3 lines but not sure how good on the 3rd. Surprising when the drops wore off I can see better with the right eye. Anyway the Dr. checked several different ways and said there was 3 spots on my left eye and the start of cataracts in both eyes but very little. He saw nothing behind the right eye and said it could be 2 things. First sinuous which I don't have problems with hardly ever get a cold maybe 3 in my adult life. Second there are 4 muscles in the eye and they can get overlapping and when I bent over to pick something up it move the muscle and it popped back in place, which he said would be very painful. It was like a electric shock and over just as quick. Then there was a dull pain when I used my eyes too much with reading and on the laptop.
I don't know how to explain it but the eye and around the eye feels funny, so I will see how it goes and if it gets worst I will call him back and see the other specialist which he said has way advance machines that can see in the eye and area better. It was a trip coming out in the sun, what a shock to the eyes.
After the eye Dr. I had to go to the bank and the hospital to get my blood test because they have to take it from the port in my chest. I told them people would think I was high on something and we had a good laugh. After that I came home, ate lunch, took care of the dogs first and my friend called that he was coming over to try and get the big table umbrella unscrewed to take it down for the winter. LOL because he had 2 big wrenches and we couldn't budge it. I was making lunch when he called so he waited 15 minutes but when he came I was still eating. I went out and the sun was terrible and I didn't have sun glasses on but that was okay because I was so mad that I couldn't get the umbrella apart I could have screamed. Don't get upset often but I can't afford to buy another so we took the legs off the table and carried the whole mess and put it in the shed. My being upset doesn't even show so I found out how to take the cloth off the umbrella so I will try and wash it, hope it stays together. I am going to work on the base over the winter by putting sprays around it to loosen it. I hope the cold makes it contract and maybe I can turn it, wishful thinking.
Today was gorgeous, 74, sunny and slight breeze so nice. All have a good weekend and I am going to close this complaining post. By the way my cabbage, cauliflower, brussell sprouts and variety of lettuce came in today. I can't plant it outside because it is too late but I am going to put it in pots in the garage and see what I can get.
Catch you tomorrow with better news. Smile and be happy I am.

October 6, 2010 Wednesday
Today it was back to the bowling alley and I so wanted to do what I did yesterday with the team mates that bowl over 200. It wasn't to be as I bowled my first game and it was terrible, my thumb was swollen and was sticking in the ball but I don't know why I was so bad. I was throwing the ball down my line but nothing happen. I couldn't pick up a spare for love or money. But, then several where have trouble bowling and picking up spares except my 2 team mates. Of course they bowled over 200 and we won even though I only bowled a 106 and that is the lowest I have bowled in 3 leagues all season. I was just a little upset because I felt I let the team down. Too start the second game I bowled a strike and that got me going so I ended up with a 154 over my average which is 143. Of course team mates over 200 and the 3rd game we had a tough going because the other team started to throw strikes. I had a 156 that time and the boys had over 200 but we lost by 2 points. The other team bowl 58 points over their average. We didn't have that much minus 2 pins but that is okay we did our best and took 3. We are not in first place any more but in the top 3 out of 10 teams and we are only 1 or 2 games out of first. I guess you can tell I am competitive and I like to win but I don't panic if I loose I just congratulate the winner. Win or loose I have fun.
Came home and ate lunch and sat down to do spark and try and see where my website is going. No where at the moment and that has me upset because I have to start making some money.
I am a little tired and the gout is set in my hands so I have to get a handle on that and that could have been my problem bowling because they where hurting. Tomorrow too the eye Doctor and hope to start cutting grass when I come home.
Didn't get the pork chops, dogs did, they where a little freezer burned. I am labeling everything now when I put it in the freezer.
Instead i had a crab cake I had made last month, rice, broccoli, a little dressing I had left over from the chicken dinner, grapes, orange juice, dessert a Dove ice cream bar. Snack I had some rice pudding I had baked with a 1/2 tablespoon of whipped cream. I am also drinking a liter of water. I do try and eat good and healthy.
I am sitting her getting tired so i am going to close for now. Catch you tomorrow and have a beautiful Thursday.

October 5, 2010 Tuesday
Today first thing I was off to the bowling alley and had a great time. Bowled 159, 159, 147 for a 465 series, my average is 139. We won all 3 games and total pins so I put my balls away and came back to the lanes and they said we won 1 by 1 pin and I knew we won by more than that. They didn't tell us we where what I call bowling blind. They hadn't figure the guy's handicap in as he was a sub. He bowled almost the same scores as me 146, 156, and 157 series 459. We ended up splitting 2/2. That's okay I had fun.
Back to the lanes at night and we had no one to bowl against so we had to bowl against ourselves and get within 40 pins of our total points. I was on fire the first game I bowled 189 and the second I was helping my GD do her homework and I bowled 120 bad difference from first to second. Then the third game I bowled a 191 and on the 10th frame I had the 10 pin to pick up and missed and that cost me a 200 game. I had a 500 series and that is great for me. My average to start is 140 so I was way over tonight. We won all 3 and total pins. That will help us go up some I hope. I wish I could bowl like that all the time but it doesn't happen.
Needless to say I like to bowl and I am glad I can. It is a very good exercise and I do a lot of walking there. Drinking water also because I take a 1.5 liter and it is about gone when I leave, I finish it at home.
Didn't eat the best today but not that unhealthy just not a lot. 2 sandwiches for something quick. I am going to have pork chops with potato and cream of mushroom soup baked in the oven tomorrow.
Well, getting late and have to get this in, plus my body in bed. Catch you tomorrow and have a good week.
