MOnday, shmunday

Monday, May 20, 2013

Not much going on here, and I refuse to complain about our 87 degree heat!! After the longest winter I can remember in decades, I am not complaining,,, I was in slumberland when my workplace called to ask if I could come in early,, I staggered around, tested my blood, took my BP, ate my breakfast,, she woke me up an=bout an hour earlier than I needed to get up for the schedule they gave me for today, so I finally got to work, was glad to get home,, went to stock up on disposable underwear for mom, etc at Walgreen, along with DD various OTC meds,,
c
When we got home I finally went outside and finished power washing that deck!! I also washed the siding on the back of the house,,
that was over two hours of very hard work,, even though my washer is gas powered, it is the wrestling it around, lots of stuff on that wood!!
I definitely got my cardio and strength time in on just that!! Now I just have to wait until it dries and I can start all over by applying the water seal on the deck.. that is easy comparatively,,

Only 87 days until our vacation,, we are starting to compile our packing list.

    Sounds like you have had a full day. I feel that 90% of the battle is just to keep moving. Keep up your hard work, it will pay off and enjoy your vacation. emoticon

    You need to move more and eat better BEFORE the test to get a better grade!

raining again, trying to yank a tree out of y raspberry garden with the car,, ex's van should do it. Ran errands after work, trying to double up on things that I planned for Wednesday. More rain expected tomorrow, so I want to finish power washing this deck.. I could do it in the rain if there is no lightning.. My washer is gas powered, but the wand is metal,, do not want to restart my heart that way..

Thursday?

Thursday, May 16, 2013

Missed a day,, took DD to E.R in University of Michigan Hospital.. started my day at four a.m. we got home at one a.,m. this morning.. I am exhausted,, lost a whole day,
Had doctors, P.A.'s, nurses, residents all trying to figure out what was wrong with her,,, after Breathing treatments, lots of IV fluids, x rays, blood work a lot of morphine and other pain medicine, we came home..
We don't know what it was, but we know what it WASN'T! Today is a catch up day for me,, had planned my whole day after work yesterday, so backtracking now..

I did learn that if you eat at 1 a.m. your blood sugar will be higher at 7 a.m.!! oops... won't do that again..
my work list today is a mile long,, all the stuff from yesterday and now regular things for today.. banking, take wheelchair back to moms assisted living(I borrowed it quickly yesterday, since DD was unable to walk one step,, found out they have FLEETS of the darned things near the parking elevators(not the one we used, but SOMEWHERE!)

We are blessed to have this medical care , albeit 100 miles from us, but it is wonderful!!

Got out of work a teensy bit early , so got a jump on home things to do. Tomorrow is a short work day so will go to hospital to visit dear friend who had a ruptured ulcer and underwent emergency surgery. She had a MGB about twelve years ago, so I am concerned that she is jeopardizing this. She smokes, which she is not supposed to do..

I am hoping to finish power washing the deck and house tomorrow,, my hands and fingers would be numb in seconds if I tried it today..

We can only try...

    I hope you went to see your friend and she is doing better.
They might have her on the opatch when you get there. No smoking is allowed in our hospitals, I am so happy it is that way.
I hope your friend is recovering well after her ordeal. HUGS, take care Hugs Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
