rain, heat, leaky windows and bad pillows

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

i have searched high and low for a pillow to suit me, i have bought all brands, cheap to expensive and i have bought soft, firm, extra firm and brick. but cant get one that is just right for me.
i hate a soft pillow, but i need height, but not to high, i am a side sleeper and just have had no luck recently finding a good pillow.
leaky windows...or windshield i should say, every time it rains, which is about every single day for 2 weeks here, i have to cover my car with a tarp, and put a bucket in the floor under the glove box, is it the windshield, i will never know cuz hubby is just way to busy to be bothered to look at it, call the insurance co to have it replaced or take it to a garage.....maybe if his is leaking he will get the hint....
now the rain and heat, one minute its pouring downpours of buckets of heavy rain, the next, its hotter than hades and wet, humid, sticky, hair is in a constant state of frizziness....
i have been so hungry today, eating eating eating
and its not even supper time yet....
am getting a headache and still have housework to complete.
til next time....


forgetting to eat?

Monday, July 26, 2010

i have always hated skinny people who say, i just forgot to eat, or i forget to eat...i always wondered, how does someone forget to eat?
i never had a problem with being reminded, from my stomach growling....
but today, i must eat my words...i have been so busy cleaning my bedroom and cleaning out the junk drawers and washing clothes that i forgot to, i didnt forget to cook, i did make chili, but, i turned it off, went back to cleaning and got started on here and wa la, i just realized i forgot to eat.
so, in order not to be up all night, which i still have to fold and put away clothes and finish cleaning the bedroom. i am going right now to eat. have a good day tomorrow to everyone, i have physical therapy, and its going to be another hot day here.


day 1 of pt and what a good day for me

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

well, i had my first visit to the physical therapy today and it wasnt sooo bad, i had to ride the exercise bike, slowly and for 5 minutes, i had to do some stretching exercises for my knee and ice...
but boy was i sore later.
i dread it when i really get going.
but today was a pretty good day, i thought yesterday was. but today has been even better, knock on wood, the day isnt over just yet, but i have stayed within my calorie range for 2 straight days and no cola.
and boy before you can bet i would have drank 3 cokes after a day of hurting.
i always told myself that coke had healing powers and that whenever i had a bad headache or back ache i would drink one.
boy who was i kidding.
but i feel good, a little tender and i go back again thursday.
the only bad news to report today is minor, my windshield is leaking very badly, cant find the leak, but am going to have to call the insurance company about getting it replaced or resealed.
today i came out of the grocery store to find a downpour and by the time i got into my car the water was an inch deep in the passenger floor, carpet will have to be replaced as well.
but im not going to let it get me down.
i better see a drop on that scale soon or im going to throw it thru my windshield.

Devastation in my community, please read...

Monday, July 19, 2010

As some of you may know, I live in Pike Co, Ky, and my area was hit hard over the weekend by flooding.
You may have seen it on the local tv stations if you live in this area, or if you dont, you may have seen it on Cnn or Fox and I think the early tv news might have shown some of it, literally hundreds, possibly thousands of ppl lost everything, their homes, their cars, their shoes off of their feet, they cant get inside the homes, which alot were mobile homes washed off of their foundations and flipped over...
At least 2 deaths have been reported so far, and several people are reported missing.
It has been declared a disaster area by the governor and hopefully, by the President soon, so we can begin to get some federal aid.
I was spared, the area of the county where I live was pretty well untouched, save for a few rock slides and muddy yards.
But, less than 10 miles from me, people lost thier homes, cars flipped upside down and washed away into creeks.
You can find this story on look for the links to flooding in Pike Co, Ky.
please keep these families in your thoughts today and if you are a charitable person and are looking to help someone, you might go to tides of hope website, I was told they had set up a fund to help the people of this area.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
