Surgery was scheduled for 11 am yesterday but "something major" happened and I was delayed until almost 5pm. Not a problem! Didn't get home until very late last night but the surgeon was great, even gave my husband the pain prescription BEFOR... Read more

Letting my RN licence go...

Monday, August 03, 2015      6 comments

I'm 62 and haven't worked in 20 years. I worked hard for my licence, but I don't use it, never plan on working again, so have decided to let it go. The past is over and I'm in a new chapter. I tore up the application when it came a few days a... Read more

Another great ride

We went out on the tandem again this morning. It was a mild 69 degrees when we started and three hours later when we dragged home it was 82. This is my last ride for a while since the gallbladder surgery is tomorrow morning but I am glad to be ... Read more

Not high at home!

Saturday, August 01, 2015      1 comments

Bought a home blood pressure machine, Omron, or something like that name. I have been taking my BP at home twice a day and it's within normal all the time! It does shoot up if I climb the stairs and immediately take it, so I think I'm OK. I'l... Read more

It's been creeping up steadily and yesterday at pre-op it was 138/99. The nurse gasped so I told her I was in pain. Have got to notify my own doctor and get my dose adjusted.... Read more

And I'm so glad! Yesterday a sample of cinnamon bread from Great Harvest brought on pain about an hour after eating it, and then I ate carefully all day. For dinner I had a handful of almonds and during the night I was in pain again. This little... Read more

So much stronger!

Walked, then went tandem riding for 19 miles with my beloved and I am SO much stronger than when we bought it a year ago! We chugged up these "Carolina foothills" that killed us last year. Today we are taking our first dance lesson, only 30 minu... Read more

Volunteering too much?

Friday, July 24, 2015      4 comments

It's starting to feel more like a "job" that we go to every day! We are taking next week OFF and are going to take dancing a half off coupon thru Groupon and I would love to be able to do more than just hang on together and shuffle... Read more

So we called it an "adventure"

Took the tandem out about 5 miles into the back hills and roads of gorgeous upstate South Carolina when suddenly the chain jumped the derailleur while shifting, which torqued the back chain, bent the derailleur, and brought the tandem to a scree... Read more

Great tandem ride!

Lots of hills which I don't dare look at so I just keep my head down and keep pedaling. Pretty soon we are at the top and not once was it too much! We came home soaked and worn out, I actually dozed for a few minutes. Last year when we first go... Read more

We took Mum out to lunch yesterday and then my husband dropped us off to see the true movie, Max. He wanted to see it too but when we got to Mum's place the lock on her front door wouldn't lock, he checked it and found the tumbler unit inside ha... Read more

Sat around another day waiting for yet another sprinkler person to show...and he never did. Ended up trashing him on his business page review form, and now we have a third person scheduled to show Thursday at 8am. The cleaning young woman has ... Read more
