I took the plunge and took 3/4 of a pain pill last night,, slept the same, but the fibro makes sleep fitful at best. Up and at 'em at 4:30am. so got the mail, sorted laundry, emptied dehumidifiers, took morning meds, getting some pc work done too.. lots of sorting and boxing things from basement today,, raining all day, so might as well be indoor-productive.

Not sure what happened with these pics that I posted last, but they are from Tahquamenon Falls, Whitefish Point,MI.

    Enjoyed the lovely pics. I'm sure sorting boxes must count as cardio.

    I have leg nerve pain so I understand not sleeping. I don't dare start cleaning early since I broke that habit. I wish you the best with your pain. I take my pain killers now as I feel that I need to sleep and function and if this is the only way to do it I am going to do it. I don't always need them now but I don't feel bad about taking them as others wanted me to . Unless you've had major back pain or like you fibro you wont understand. Have a great day sounds like you did a lot already.

Friday has arrived finally.

Friday, September 07, 2012

manyt hings to care for after work today. DD and I went to teh John Deere dealership out of town to return teh cable I purchased the beginning of teh week.. decided to purchase another set of mower blades for parental mower.. did some banking, got new batteries for DD transmittor for parental garage door,, now it finally works..

Jus tgot phone call from moms assisted living nurse,, she now has pitting edema, both legs, so they are bringing in a doppler to rule out DVT.. doing a mobile chest xray to rule out CHF,,
will be checking for cellulitis.. she gained seven pounds in teh past week.. I bought her special diabetic socks, a new footstool to prop her legs on,since she is so inactive,,, finally told nurse that I said that she will have to pay more for her care if she does not get up and move around,, it will save her $$ if she gets rid of this edema!! She does what I say and hates that they charge $$ to do things for her.. she is so used to me waiting on her hand and foot free of charge,, those day are way over...

    Sorry about the issues with the assisted living. Too bad they do not encourage enough. It is a real problem with our golden years. I hope there are better days ahead. emoticon emoticon

Not feeling the love today,, came home from work with a sore back and feet.. I never have sore feet with my Walkfit inserts...
I had DD apply some Minagin to my entire back after my shower, I sure hope it works.

Not a bad week, but lots to do.. so happy the parental lawn mower is back in action..

With this unusually hot and humid weather in our state this year, I think I drank more water than I have in my life so far. IT is all filtered, so I feel confident that it is not harming me, but the humidity and heat are draining everybody of energy. I was just standing next to the lawn mower yesterday, in the shade, sweat pouring off me!!
I have a real fear of what the planet has in store for us with this global warming,, each year gives less ground moisture when needed, but the atmosphere is like a giant terrarium.

DD mowed lawn this morning before it started to sprinkle..more rain until next week.. I should have left the pool hole opened and made a big pond back there...

    It is what it is with this weather. We got the tail end of Isaac they say. We have the greenest grass I have ever seen here. This is the first year we did not have garden. Our friends have been sharing their bounty . I love little Zucchini about 6 to8 inches long just to eat whole. Most of then were small last night and when I got them they are huge. I love Zucchini chocolate cake i made it for my kids all the time. They always asked about the green things bu they never stooped eating them despite the green things. Chocolate disguises a lot HUGS Pat in Maine.
LINDA I hope the weather is kinder tomorrow. Hugs dear friend, take care! emoticon emoticon emoticon

JOhn Deere Crapmobile

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Rose at 3 for work, got home from work to find ex hub at parental home to repair their junk of a JOhn Deer lawn mower. He installed new belt, new blades, cotter pins, ignition electronics wiring to deck,,, mower still did not work,,
ten minutes after I showered, ex and DD show up home to tell me I need to make a trip to neighboring town, nearest JOhn Deer dealer to get new part.. seems we had to ge tnew wiring..

Guy tells us what is wrong, how to fix, so we schlep back to parental home, , , ex starts work on mower, I get acall form a dear friend that she has apail of tomaotes for me .. she lives a couple miles from parental home, so I leave him on the driveway to install new parts.
return to find mower still does not work, so he gets back on ground, starres at belt on pulleys, to discover that whomever assembled teh mower before purchase(belt ahs never been changed) put it on wrong,, also installed springs on wiring wrong,, so the whole time the belt was rubbing against a spring,, miracle that it ever worked.. humidity here is 97%, 87 degrees, so it was not fun.

We finally got home at4:30ish.. I am exhausted, still have laundry to do,, cleaning curtains for sale, packing more tubs.. it was so hot I hav eot shower AGAIN,, just did7 hours ago..

got many errands to run tomorrow, so am glad I have a list, have a short shift, and will hopefully, cool down by then.
What a day!!!!!!!!!!! Still sucking water out of basement.. 65 pints every six hours yet.. hopefully, by nest week we should hae it dried up,, although we are supposed to get more rain tomorrow,, we got rain this morning..

    I thought they were supposed to be reliable, I see all the little kids on John DEERE toy tractors. I would give them a piece of my mind in a nice polite way. Was it assembled at the store, you should have some recourse for all of the money spent on parts. DUPLICATE your bills and let them have it. It was a good thing there was help for you . Sorry LINDA, that is no way to spend a day for sure. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticonWe have lots of rain too right now. HUGS !!!!

    Get some rest. You've earned it.

Here in Maine John Deere's are a no go. Everyone here uses John Moose's.
