Slow, Slow, Slow

Sunday, April 04, 2010

My computer once again is very slow. It's so frustrating. I actually purchased something that was supposed to help. Help! It didn't.

I'm waiting for my oldest daughter Bailey to pick me up and take us to my second daughter Dawn's for Easter dinner. It will probably be the 3 of us, Dawn's husband and his father, her two children and their special friends. Unless they have to go to the friends gathering. We used to go to an Easter buffet at the club house before Dawn's mother-in-law died but since Dawn has had us. She often had lamb because that's what her husband likes but last year Bailey asked for ham and we had that with cheesy potatoes. Real diet food. LOL. I was still on pureed food after surgery and Dawn pureed it and I was surprised how much I got. I think I've got her trained on small plate no drink.

Gail, my 3rd daughter that lives with me during the week, is in Canby, MN, where her husbands parents live. His Mom is in the hospital. Lori, my youngest daughter, has to work, 12 hours shifts and not considered a holiday because it's religious.

Restless night, up every couple of hours.

Happy Easter Everyone who celebrates it.

Need to cut time spent on SparkPeople

Saturday, April 03, 2010

I think I've said that before. I think maybe some of the pain I'm having on the right side of my neck and shoulder could be from too much time on the computer. I know the sharp ones in the wrist is. I had surgery for carpel tunnel on the left wrist because that was the worst one but the right had some too. So I will again try to cut back.

I put the TV on animal planet to see if Morgan would be interested in watching cats. Not really. She' the center of the universe. Some loud meowing will get her attention but mostly she justs wants to sleep.

I wish my computer would quit being so bucky and slow.

    I hope your aches and pains heal! My cat doesn't really like watching cats either. He would rather spend time watching Criminal Minds with me! Hehe

    Well, seeing how you just crossed 32,000 Spark Points, I would say you're spending a LOT of time on Spark. Take it from a former Spark-a-Holic, who slips occasionally, it is not an easy addiction to get over, but emoticon and from what I've found out, everyone still manages to get along without me.

    I go to the chiropractor every 2 weeks because of lower back and neck problems. Lately i have had a lot of trouble with the right side of my neck and back and he told me it is likely caused by being on the computer too much. He told me to cut it to 20 minutes at a time. I have to admit i haven't been watching how much i sit here. Now I have noticed after i bowl the neck is worse as well. My plan is to use a timer to remind me to get away from here awhile. It does take time to go thru the posts, read articles i am interested in etc. so i get involved and forget the time. My wrist and arm are already affected by bowling but I won't give that up as long as i can still do it and have fun. Take care, Georgine emoticon emoticon

    You want to be careful not to aggravate the carpal tunnel. Do you use one of those wrist supports when you're online? I don't know if they really help.

Another sore throat and earache

Friday, April 02, 2010

I'm getting tired of these. It was bad enough that I decided not to go on the Senior trip to North Minneapolis. Especially since it's supposed to rain and I don't think walking around in the rain would help. I seem to get hoarse just talking for awhile. It really seems to get worse about 15 minutes into singing with the chorus. Not being able to hear out of the right ear does make singing in tune more difficult. I was right next to the piano yesterday and that made it easier. Bailey called about 4 times and Lori called once so I did talk more than usualy too.

Hope you're having a great April Fool's Day

Thursday, April 01, 2010

I haven't experienced any April Fool's day tricks and don't expect to. I rarely play them because I don't like looking silly and that's what so often happens. I do have a tendency to tease, especially helpless 2 1/2 year olds and kitties, LOL. I went to chorus practice this morning and walked outside. Another beautiful sunshiny day. Tomorrow I'm going outside maybe a bunch and rain is forecast. Probably need it since I see there is already fire problems. What would we do if we didn't have the weather to talk about.

It's pretty late in the day for me to just be getting on here and I'm already tired. I had to really convince myself I should get up and go to chorus practice. I have to be on the go even earlier tomorrow. I know, I know all you that do that everyday. I used to. It's a good thing I did because we did a bunch of rearranging songs, getting more, for when we sing at Bethel next Thursday.

Morgan must have heard me typing because she just came in to check on me. I usually have the TV on but don't so thought maybe she wouldn't.

Gail cleaned for a few hours yesterday and wow does it ever look nice. She cleaned out the plants and repotted the ones she's keeping. She said she considered just throwing them all because they were looking so straggly. She still didn't put all the Christmas stuff away but maybe they are permanent decorations. LOL. Vacuumed even by Morgan's litter box which I probably make as much mess cleaning and filling as Morgan does using it.

    Sounds like a great day....full and busy! You stay so active and are interested in so many thing, and that's such a great way to be! I'm always ready to talk about the weather, as I'm usually quite fascinated by it!

Maybe I should just go back to bed

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

And pull the covers over my head. I didn't get a newspaper today. I read the newspaper everyday, right after I get done for the first time during the day, on SparkPeople. It's not a big paper but I think they should deliver it since I pay for it. LOL. I can get most of the news online I guess. Then I try to get in here and start getting that same message about something not right and they have to take me down. It takes 5 minutes for a page to come up. I've been trying to get this blogged for 45 minutes.

I know Gail comes home at night because when I get up during the night her door is partially closed like she does when she's in there. Just enough for Morgan to go in or out. I haven't seen her since Sunday night. She took the grocery list I made last night off the counter. Maybe she picked up my paper on the way out and forget to put it in. LOL. Obviously I eat most of the groceries since she goes to her other home weekends and isn't here much for lunch or dinner.

I'm going to the library today and to Passport Players at the Senior center.
