Working on bills and 2010 budget which seems a disaster. Makes me want to run away from home (which, of course, is not an option). Need to say little prayers throughout the day for strength. Oh, Lordy, Lordy, Lordy....
I am going home today. Had a nice 2 day mini-vacation with a girlfriend. Look forward to having some private, alone time. I am not a hermit at heart but there are times I would like to be able to watch t.v. or talk on the phone without another person around. My car is a great getaway...then there is the gym where most people are into themselves....I love the whirlpool and steam room....can't wait to go...probably on Friday....
No swelling and very little pain. Carpal tunnel release and trigger thumb release much easier than CPC joint replacement surgery when bones were cut. This time only soft tissues were cut and will be able to shower 3 days after surgery....Stitches out in about 10 days...Anxious to get back to the gym. Resting a lot...feeling good....
Am I thirsty? Arghhhhhh.... Nothing per mouth from midnight even though it is just local anesthesia for my hand surgery. Today the surgery is scheduled for 10:15 (are they ever on time?)...I am having carpal tunnel release and trigger thumb release on the right hand. As normal, or as usual, I am a bit anxious. I am leaving the house in an hour and haven't packed my bag yet.
I am picking up my girlfriend to go with me and then calling a cab since I won't be allowed to drive for 24 hours. Leaving hubby home (he is a bit upset about this, but we will stay in touch and have people to check in on him while I am gone). I will be gone 2 nights and hope to get lots of rest.
Hope the weather is good when I drive back home as I will be able to use only one hand for that. Will leave my car in the ramp if I am unable to drive safely and take a cab home.
We have had 2 "cat fires." The first happened when I worked at home and my supervisor called to discuss something and suddenly I said, "Oh, no, the cat's on fire!" and then hung up the phone. It is one of the favorite stories in the department of the adventures of Teddy working at home. The cat's tail caught on fire and there were flames shooting up behind her and I put the fire out with my bare hands. No one was injured but the cat's tail was pretty wierd looking until it grew out and there was the smell of burned hair in the house for a couple of days. The cat was never aware she was on fire so I guess she didn't get hurt.
The other one was our other cat who jumped from his perch onto a table where a candle was burning. It singed his fur on his side.
I have heard some of these cat fires are the cause of houses burning down.
Since we had our two incidents of cats not mixing with candles we don't use candles any more.
