itty bitty, well you know the rest

Friday, January 21, 2011

My bathroom is clean!
Almost, I still have laundry to fold and put away, and the tub needs a serious scrub, but I usually ask Honey to do that on his day off.
What a way to spend a day off.
But hes a good sport, most of the time.
I just very suddenly decided to clean my bathroom.
My kitchen is half way there.
I wont even discuss the bedroom.
As for me, I have had a day that is only half good and half bad.
I re-learned a lesson today about lending to a relative.
That is one lesson that I wont have to be taught again anytime soon!
My back still aches, but I am learning to live with it, the shiatusu massaging chair pad is helpful, sometimes.
If you went to your doctor and they said to you, you have a large tumor and the only thing that is going to help you is to have surgery to remove it....you would, wouldnt you?
Wouldnt your doctor insist you have the surgery?
Or if it were a cancer, he would insist you would have the surgery....or lets say, any other problem in the body, be it hemmoroids, or bad tonsils, etc....most doctors and most patients would agree that surgery would be the saving grace.
So, why is it that I have been fighting with my insurance company for at least 5 years or more to get a breast reduction surgery?
And they keep telling me it isnt medically necessary, its cosmetic and they wont pay?
My doctor, or doctors, as I have had many thru the years, from chiropractors to neurologists, ob/gyns...gp's, etc, tell me, the best thing for my back pain, would be breast reduction surgery, and yet, they keep fighting me.
But, this is one battle I intend to win!!!!
I hurt all the time now, I will fight, if I have to take it to a judge I will. And it is beginning to look that way.
Have a good weekend to all.

    thanks for the comments everyone, my best friend had it done 2 years ago and she feels so much better, i have been fighting that long, but i have a pretty good feeling about the doctor i am going to, i really believe they are going to push for me. honey of course says if i need it he will finance it, but why should we have to do that, isnt that what insurance is for?

    Good luck dealing with insurance companies....yuck! But the common sense involved should prevail.

    Good luck. We had a sub that had breast reduction surgery for her back. She was so thrilled. Not only did her back quit hurting, but she had a perky chest. That was the pleasant surprise she was not anticipating. No sag.

keep jammin'....

Saturday, January 15, 2011

The weather.
It seems to be on my mind alot lately. I cant seem to ever be warm....I can remember (back in the day)...when I ran around the house in shorts and a tshirt in the dead of winter, so socks on my feet, and I loved it.
When did this change?
Anyway, I have been feeling a sore throat coming the last day or two and now its here.
Taking tylenol and munching on Hall's Breezers.
They arent overwhelming like some of Hall's sore throat lozenges.
Fruity taste.
Wednesday my son will turn 26...I know, pick your jaws up off of the floor, yes I am old enough to have a son that age....cuz I had him at age 17.
But I do hope he has finally found some happiness in his life.
I am still searching for total happiness, I dont think any of us will ever achieve that....I mean, we are only human.
Good luck to all.
Keep jammin'.

    I am freezing most of the time too. People here say it is due to weight loss, but that only makes partial sense to me. With weight loss and increased stamina should come better blood circulation....so why are my fingers cold?

I like the "Keep Jammin" too, nice thought.

today feels like friday

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

for some reason, i dont know why, it has just felt like friday.
my cars heater went out yesterday, it had been trying to mess up on me recently, but yesterday finally went.
so after 4 hours in the ice cold and 70 bucks spent at the parts store, my brother, bless his heart, got it fixed.
but all the work ran my battery down, so today, i had to buy battery terminals and get that fixed.
i still am not 100 percent sure about the heat, because i havent been able to drive it.
maybe tomorrow.
i dont know how it is for all of you out there, but here in my neighborhood, i have many many neighbors struggling with their electric bills.
ky power really stuck it to us here, we live in the coal fields and my man along with hundreds of others in this region risk their lives under ground mining the coal out, and yet, we cant catch a break on our electric bills.
a friend told me last week that he was sick and i asked if he had the flu, and he said no, the stress of worrying about his 600 dollar electric bill was more than he could take.
im just venting.
did 20 minutes on my bike and might do 20 more to release some of this stress.

    I keep my heat turned down low , but I feel cold all the time. I can't afford high winter bills either. I am glad I invested in a eclectric blanket , so I can sleep good.

Sorry to hear about your car problems. Hope the heater works when you go somewhere.


Exercise is a great stress reducer. emoticon

    I am glad you got your car fixed. With that cold streak going through you need the heater. I can not even contemplate those electric bills. That is terrible. No wonder people are stressed. Congrats on getting in the bike riding.

happy new year

Saturday, January 01, 2011

So, I did get my hair colored and cut and I have to say, it looks good and I am happy with it.
Had a good New Years Eve with my honey, visited with family, went out to eat, shopped a little then home for WII and fireworks.
Now I am letting honey sleep in, as he has to return to work on Tuesday.
It has been nice having him around these last 10 days.
Hope everyone has a nice New Year Day and a great year all around.
And, my new years resolution, which I havent really made an official one, I guess is to just really try to focus on my health more, eat healthier, exercise more, sleep more and take my vitamins and try to be more positive.
and in this economy that is a big feat.

weight loss this year. Best Wishes~
