Joy. <BR> <BR> I had a very easy day at work today, but hustled to get the stack of bills paid when I got home. When did the bills start coming at all different times of the month?? It used to be, a bill either came on the first or the fifteenth of the month. <BR> <BR> The leaves are all brilliant red, orange or burgandy here, bu... Thu, 27 Oct 2016 17:31:16 EST Wednesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6257483 I am busy checking things off my to-do list. I made five phone calls, made an appointment, ran an errand, called the bank to find out that I need to take a death certificate there to change taxpayer ID to mine, making the accounts mine only. <BR> I have a stack of bills to pay, then start addressing and stamping those many manila envelopes of pictures and mementos that I found in the house for friends and family. There are LOTS of those envelopes. I could not just toss them in the trash,... Wed, 26 Oct 2016 14:35:30 EST Tuesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6257056 I am close to meeting my step goal today. not feeling very good right now with stomach upset. I was awake most of the night last night. I am sure it is stress with all that is going on around here. <BR> I had a nice day at work and came home to sort through more boxes of things we brought home when we thought we had to be out of Dad's house this weekend. I am still glad that we did clear everything out that I can think of so far. SO far, Andrew said it will be at least another week ... Tue, 25 Oct 2016 17:22:38 EST Monday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6256525 I had PT at 7:30 this morning. Casey started me on the ultrasound therapy after all of the rest of my workout. I do 10 minutes on the recumbant, 10 minutes on leg presses, Heel and calf stretches on steps, lunges, triple leg swings on foam. <BR> I picked DD up from Dad's house afterwards; she had more bags of shredding and other trash out for tomorrow's pickup. <BR> Stopped at bank to cash nephew's check before he decides to stop payment, although his mother is still waiting for $$ fro... Mon, 24 Oct 2016 18:11:56 EST Something hit a fan and it was not daisies and lilacs! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6255988 So when vulture sister was here last time I blogged about how she was drunk and snuck into my old bedroom where DD was asleep, in the middle of the night and was trying to get into DD backpack. <BR> Well, I have been having a fight with vulture but she did not know it until today. <BR> When vulture jr.(David, her son) came finally to pick up the table and six chairs, she followed him in her car(it is a 90 minute drive) and being the sneaks that they are, neither one of them told me she was ... Sun, 23 Oct 2016 19:14:17 EST Saturday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6255546 As predicted, my nephew finally called here about 3 pm to tell me that he slept in.. until 2:30 pm. His lie was that his tv did not work last night so he stayed up ALL NIGHT FIXING IT until 4 am.Right. Let me get my driver's license out and see if I was born yesterday. <BR> <BR> He says he will be here tomorrow morning. Okay by me, If he does not show up, the furniture goes in the sale. . <BR> DD and I spent almost four hours clearing out Dad's office. Now this space is about the size of ... Sat, 22 Oct 2016 20:02:50 EST Friday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6255047 Pt today with Ryan went well. Next week I think I will be starting the ultrasound therapy with medicine. I believe it is Voltaren gel mixed with the ultrasound gel. That should be interesting. <BR> Today was laundry, errands, bring more things to Dad's house and tossing some out. I made a Dutch oven full of chili so I can freeze some for later in the week next week. Dd does not eat it, so I batch cook for myself. <BR> I did not meet my step goal today but surpassed my workout minutes b... Fri, 21 Oct 2016 16:48:52 EST Thursday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6254628 I got my second injection by P.A hunky, Shawn. Unlike the first one, I felt tremendous pressure with and after the injection. Not pain just real pressure. Also unlike last week, I did not get my tires vandalized, nor did I wait longer than five minutes. Last week I waited for over an hour. <BR> <BR> I picked up all of the rings and mom's watch from the jeweler. He agreed to sell some of them for me, but I could not get what she paid for them of course. My ring is worth over four tim... Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:47:52 EST Wednesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6254034 I am not really getting to my step goal lately, but I am hoping to do better after my lsat injection Nov 1. I will get the second injection tomorrow after work. Dr. Hunky odes a great job! <BR> Casey keeps changing my exercises, so I get at least two new ones each therapy session. Lunges and the leg press are helping me. I can do the presses and the bike for a very long time. It is the lateral things that are painful. <BR> Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:25:31 EST Pie in teabag http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6253604 I knew you would have to look here to see what the blog is about. <BR> I bought some Private Selection tea bags at Kroger. They are not decaf, BUT they taste just like eating a piece of pumpkin pie, but with no calories!!! They are called Orange spice black tea. Yum! NO calories, no fat, but aroma and taste is like pie! <BR> <BR> Nothing much here today after work. I have not reached my step goal for today, but I am resigned to the fact that my knees just cannot do that anymore. I tr... Tue, 18 Oct 2016 17:00:52 EST Nice day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6253124 Started out with PT with some new workouts. Casey doubled up on my leg press time. I was okayed for four more PT sessions, so I will start right up again on Friday. <BR> <BR> DD and I went to Barnes and NOble and walked around, I relaxed while she shopped using her gift cards from last Christmas. I read a whole book while she did that, but thoroughly enjoyed myself. NO sorting or junk-tossing at Dad's today. She did go there while I went to PT and she threw another drawer full ... Mon, 17 Oct 2016 19:17:05 EST Sunday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6252488 I got up today and stretched for afew minutes,, PT exercises. My BS was 108, very good for me. <BR> IT is still raining today, so we left after breakfast and started in on the house again.. sorting, tossing, filling boxes for the estate sale. The more we toss, the less the company charges us. <BR> Dad had a small combination safe that he bought about fifty years ago, like a child's safe. Over the years he put any odd coins or coins that he started collecting when he saw they were old... Sun, 16 Oct 2016 16:33:18 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6252016 I noticed a rusty roofing nail sticking out of the sidewall of my tire Thursday, realizing that it had to be vandalism. No way could that nail be half pounded in the SIDEWALL of the tire by driving over it or having it ricochet onto the tire tread. <BR> I went to DIscount Tire when they opened this morning and bought all new rims and tires. Nice big chunk of change there.. I had the factory original wheels on (11 years old) and the tires needed replacing anyway. The manager confirmed my... Sat, 15 Oct 2016 15:32:44 EST Very early Friday morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6251305 I had a very difficult time falling asleep last night. Two hours of lying there, waiting for total exhaustion to take over... <BR> I did get some things accomplished . After work I did some paper work, made some calls, and stowed the boxes in my car for parents house today. <BR> I got my injections with Dr. Hunky. HE always looks you right in the eye, stopping whatever he is doing, and listens to every word. He moves very quickly around the office and treatment rooms, BUT whenever you ... Fri, 14 Oct 2016 06:47:08 EST Thursday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6251074 After work today I went to the orthopod, Dr. Hunky. Apparently, I was supposed to get a cortisone injection two weeks before this initial Euflexxa injection. I repeatedly told them when I called for this appointment, that it was the INITIAL one for this injection. NO biggie for me. Dr. Hunky injected me first with the cortisone, then followed it with the huge syringe filled with the Euflexxa. My next injection is next Thursday. My final one is November 1, since Doc. Hunky and his fami... Thu, 13 Oct 2016 18:11:41 EST Wednesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6250475 Sorting through mail, paying bills, going through junk from Dad's house. Piles of the stuff and still more to go. Wed, 12 Oct 2016 13:27:37 EST Met my step goal today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6249958 Lots more pain today,, I can hardly wait until Thursday. I do not think there will be immediate relief, but after the third injection I should have it. The last injection is November 1. <BR> I have constant pain at the level of 9 right now. IF I did not work, I would have asked for a Rx med for pain, but I sleep for hours after taking a 200mg ibuprofen, so it is not feasible now. <BR> <BR> I am not going to Dad's today to sort junk,, the pain is too great. <BR> <BR> Tue, 11 Oct 2016 14:37:03 EST Monday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6249431 I had two new exercises today at PT. Casey started me on leg presses and a new thing on the steps for stretching the muscles. <BR> HE also wrapped my athletic tape differently to see if it would help me more than the old way. <BR> <BR> David, my nephew, just called to tell me he will be up here October 22 to pick up the table from Dad's house. I reminded him of the cost and never once mentioned my sister, his mother. He has no idea what happened and I never give either of them any ammo to... Mon, 10 Oct 2016 15:46:34 EST Sunday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6248941 I posted yesterday's blog, but it did not go through for some reason. <BR> <BR> Today I went to Dad's house alone,, meet-up with one of their neighbors who I knew was not going to buy the house.. She is OCD about chemicals, so wanted hardwood floors. I told her repeatedly via phone beforehand that there were none. I was right.. I will get a realtor,, I knew that nothing would ever be easy about anything to do with this estate. <BR> I spent a couple hours hauling more things out of the cl... Sun, 9 Oct 2016 18:16:36 EST Friday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6247975 A very busy day today. Therapy, then errands, then finding out that the entire two miles of road in front of Dad's house was stripped out this morning and there was an 8-inch drop from the pavement down to the dirt. They were replacing the entire road, but we never got a notice or anything about the closure. I ended up driving up and down it to drop DD off at the house before my PT appointment. I asked a worker on the way out to the main road, how long this would be like this. He sa... Fri, 7 Oct 2016 18:38:08 EST Thursday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6247433 Today is our second day of pea-soup fog. Humidity is 100%. I love my inhaler! <BR> I came home early from work today, glad I did too. One more week to possible relief. I am hoping the first injection will give some relief. I can barely stand the pain at night. I know I staring down the barrel of a replacement, but I could lay eggs, I am so chicken. I would not hesitate to do it though, if the docs recommend it. <BR> They already told me that it is unlikely I will ever walk without ... Thu, 6 Oct 2016 15:27:05 EST Spark tracker frustration http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6246839 I am considering calling it quits with the spark tracker. It will track and sync maybe twice a day, but usually after I along in bed asleep. One sync early this morning before I left for work and it is now 2:38 pm and still no more syncs..How is a person supposed to know where they are? <BR> They keep telling me it must be something I am doing wrong or the tracker is needing a battery or o-ring... <BR> Just what I need right now: more stress... <BR> Wed, 5 Oct 2016 14:39:29 EST Tuesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6246286 Good work day if I do not count the level 9 pain in my knee. It is getting closer to that injection, I just wait for it.less than two weeks now. <BR> I am still getting lots of step in and doing the lunges and chair exercises in-between chores and bill-paying. <BR> I got called to jury duty, AGAIN. They are seeking jurors for March of 2017 now. I will not be doing it, only because of work. <BR> They sent my mother an absentee ballot application and a jury duty form.. She is REALLY an ... Tue, 4 Oct 2016 13:54:40 EST Monday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6245795 Pt this morning was really a workout! Whew! <BR> <BR> My knee is always so sore afterwards,,I am so glad I will be getting that Efflexxa injection on the 13th. <BR> <BR> We brought more pictures home today to sort through,. I also took some things back to the house for the sale. That garage is getting pretty full. We also sorted through some boxes in our basement for trash and sale. More memories and sadness from the past. I will be so happy when this estate is finished.. Mon, 3 Oct 2016 16:31:52 EST Sunday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6245186 Another rest day..just some leg lifts, lunges and bicep curls. Going through old family pictures is very painful for me. I have two full boxes of them. Basically, the painful part is missing my aunt and dad and mourning the relationship that never happened with my paternal grandparents. They hated my mother, so they did with me and my younger sister., My older sister was the first grandchild for them AND looked exactly like my grandmother and aunt. they loved her. <BR> A grandmother w... Sun, 2 Oct 2016 14:22:43 EST Sleep! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6244576 I slept almost nine hours last night! I broke down and took two P.M. Acetaminophen. I dare not take them the nights before I work or I would never get up. <BR> My knee pain has decreased a little and I am ready to do no great physical things today. We have not seen any sunshine since last weekend so it will be rain again today and tomorrow.. Great Lakes weather! Sat, 1 Oct 2016 09:17:55 EST PT day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6244306 I had a very hard workout today at PT. Casey introduced two new exercises, and used a tool to release tension in my muscles. The pain is about a 9 today after that. I picked up some Rx's and a few staples and gassed up my car. <BR> I hauled boxes and bags in the house and also from Dad's house. I started going through the albums that DD loaded into cartons to take to my house for sorting. I shed a few tears, smiled a lot and realized that most of the pics are meaning less to me. Va... Fri, 30 Sep 2016 18:14:22 EST Good day Thursday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6243746 I had another easy day at work, but my knee was throbbing before I started working. <BR> <BR> I came home from work to have Dd greet me at the door telling me we got an additional THREE cases of paper towels delivered via Fedex again this morning. This puts us at 180 rolls! Since the VP told me they shipped the prize out twice and it never came through, this must be one of those two shipments! <BR> We have paper towels in hug boxes all over the house! <BR> <BR> DD already carried four ... Thu, 29 Sep 2016 15:56:29 EST Wednesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6243212 A very easy day at work; One of the best I have had in years, as a matter of fact. <BR> When I arrived at my home, DD showed me the four cases of paper towels that finally arrived from the contest I won. Viva came through and we got 108 rolls of towels! <BR> I was supposed to get 3 cases with a total of 72 rolls with a value of $120, but somebody goofed up at the fulfillment center and I waited almost two months and e-mailed the VP for the past two months to get them. <BR> She emailed me ... Wed, 28 Sep 2016 14:22:45 EST Tuesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6242708 Yesterday was a very productive day. I went to PT and Cindy was my therapist. She put me through the wringer, but the pain was worth it.. <BR> I came home, did two loads of laundry( up and down basement stairs), made numerous phone calls to find out about insurance. <BR> I am now scheduled to begin the knee injections(Euflexxa) on October 13. I will finish them in November. <BR> After making dinner, I sorted through two more boxes of documents from parents filing cabinet. It took me 4 1... Tue, 27 Sep 2016 15:00:59 EST Monday morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6241984 I will be leaving soon for PT. Casey is the new guy there and I have the rest of my sessions with him. He seems very formal, but we will see. <BR> My knee hurts terribly already and I have not even started the day. Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:17:01 EST Sunday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6241634 I decided to plan today so I did a little bit of everything and lots of some other things. <BR> First was my ritual of reading the paper after testing my BS. I organized all of the bills for payment time tomorrow, went to buy three new curtain rods for the Lodge room and DD bedroom. I also bought some gorilla glue for some projects, and some new sewing machine needles. <BR> We went to Dad's house so I could pack huge boxes of more papers, files and tax documents to sort through and either... Sun, 25 Sep 2016 15:33:34 EST Saturday morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6241050 I am not really feeling like doing anything today. I need to get some wood glue and curtain rods,, not sure if I have the oomph to go out to get them today.. Sat, 24 Sep 2016 10:26:41 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6240733 I went to my first returning PT early this morning. Ryan taped my leg as before, then we went to the bike, then lunges, heel & toe stretches. Since I had the ice massage, I did not really feel the pain too much today. My future sessions will be with the new Physical therapist. <BR> I dropped a carload of empty boxes at Dad's house for future sorting, then to the store for Rx's and a few groceries for the week. Love my salads!! <BR> Yesterday I had the A/C on, today the windows were ope... Fri, 23 Sep 2016 15:33:10 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6240231 I am going to use my heavier hand weights this afternoon, trying to get my upper arm strength back if possible.

More smaller meals too... Wed, 21 Sep 2016 15:17:04 EST Tuesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6239136 A good day at work, nothing special, but was hoping I would have gotten more steps in while at work. <BR> My seasoned cast iron pans look beautiful! I let them cool in the oven overnight and theya re now ready for some fantastic French toast and hotcakes. <BR> I have a stovetop pineapple upside-down cake recipe that is just itching to be made!! I can also bake it in the oven, but it turns out just as great topside. <BR> <BR> Michigan is a fish-venison state, so it would be sacrilege to co... Tue, 20 Sep 2016 14:13:14 EST Monday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6238625 I got a lot accomplished today..I had an early morning appointment with my new Physical Therapist, Casey. He is very nice and I look forward to going back Friday morning. <BR> <BR> I had some financial things to take care of before I got there, so finished everything early. <BR> <BR> I came home and decided to season two of my cast iron skillets. My friend Karen gave me a flat, square one when we visited. I cleaned it and my old one too. I cleaned and seasoned them and have them baking(s... Mon, 19 Sep 2016 16:58:00 EST Sunday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6237958 I finally caught up on sleep. I opened my peepers this morning and that clock showed 10:20!!! Half of my day is finished!! <BR> I slept over 10 hours! <BR> <BR> Today is cleaning, put a roast in the crock pot, sorting though more documents,etc. <BR> I did get some time to meditate and read. Joyce Meyers always gets me back to myself and God. <BR> My knee is so painful, like I never had therapy before. Tomorrow is my evaluation for it, will get some exercises in.. I know they will be painful.... Sun, 18 Sep 2016 14:55:22 EST Saturday morning, sunrise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6237253 Raining, dark.. Going to go through more junk of the parents. Every time I go to their house to sort through things, I haul something back there to sell in the estate sale. Even though the company will take a percentage off the top each day, THEY do everything, including cleaning, sorting and dumpster-filling later on. <BR> I need today to relax and just rest. I feel very old today. <BR> I am going to do some PT exercises and some meditation. Sat, 17 Sep 2016 08:07:29 EST Friday night.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6237142 Ran errands today, sorted through two more boxes of documents form Dad's house.. Big surprise in them!! <BR> Took them to Karen's house, my dear friend, DD made a bonfire and she burned them all in the fire. What a relief.. a LOT less shredding. <BR> We are both exhausted, but I have more to do tomorrow.. busy. Fri, 16 Sep 2016 23:40:34 EST Thursday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6236426 Gave co-worker one of the Christmas trees.. she saw a lot of things to buy at the sale... <BR> Got one of Mom's accounts closed, done for now..

She will meet me there. <BR> After we did enough shredding to fill five huge leaf bags, a dear friend offered to have a bonfire and let them all go up in smoke. We still have boxes, bags and more drawers to sort through..now it is just DD and I again. no more relatives in house ever again. <BR> When her son, my nephew comes to get the table he bought, I will not e... Wed, 14 Sep 2016 16:04:11 EST Tuesday afternoon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6235270 What a busy weekend! The sister showed up late at night at Dad's house.. she hauled out a car full of stuff and headed back home after the estate sale guy left. She is a sort-of hoarder, so she took almost everything I offered to her, plus a LOT of other things. She kept saying she was going to take a shower, then I started opening a utensil drawer in the kitchen, so she started going through things with me.. Don't want Linda to actually get a slotted plastic spoon!! <BR> Egads. <BR> The e... Tue, 13 Sep 2016 16:40:17 EST Sunday morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6233791 Knee pain woke me, along with cold air!! <BR> I just got up and started my day. My blood pressure is down to almost perfect numbers(126/66) and my FBS this morning was 123. Hefting boxes and hauling trash bags is keeping me busy. I do not know if I will be able to remove everything for family from the house. I have decided that if sister does not get here before the sale, her antique rocking chair is getting sold. I have made the decision to sell one of them that I would have taken home. ... Sun, 11 Sep 2016 07:56:56 EST Saturday.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6233401 A calm day here.. doing house work and laundry, paying bills. Will have to go back to Dad's tomorrow to clear more things out. Since sister is not interested in the actual work portion of this estate, only the $$, I will just do my best and let it reflect on what she gets at the end.. she knows that the estate sale guy is going to be here Monday afternoon, but if it does not pay off for her, so what? <BR> We will see.. <BR> <BR> We thought crazy pants was going to have their car towed aw... Sat, 10 Sep 2016 12:58:57 EST Friday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6233039 Today was all about running errands and back to Dad's house for some more junk-clearing. I emptied another three dresser drawers(HUGE) ones. They were overflowing with every form of obituary, souvineers, newspaper clippings, Dad's Police Officer patches, his commendations, stories about the train wreck he was involved in as a brakeman-conductor back in the 60's. <BR> <BR> Greeting cards from every imaginable occasion, photos, bow ties, junk, junk, JUNK!!!!!!!!!!! <BR> Old eyeglasses and ... Fri, 9 Sep 2016 19:24:03 EST What about the money? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6232456 Dear sister called just now, asking about the money from the estate. First, she said she might not come up this weekend because it is supposed to rain! HUH?
