Thank God for my husband! Yes, again.
My sister called yesterday. The first time we have spoken since my dad passed away. My mother had a stroke while driving. They are in Ohio, I like in northern wisconsin. Mom is in the hospital, tests are being done, she will be put on CareFlight... Read more
What is wrong with people?!?!
I was awake at 3am, local time with my knees again. So I got on Sparkpeople. I do that, you know, instead of snacking now. I was Sparking along, leaving witty little comments, suggestions for people having issues I THOUGHT were mine alone, then ... Read more
I caved in this morning and called the orthopedist about the knees. The one that just got replaced is bothering me almost as much as the one that NEEDS replacing.
What did I find out? There is a reason why they normally do not do these on p... Read more
And NOT the fun kind. My weekend was amazing, thanks to my husband's generosity. My Monday totally stunk thanks to an overabundance of testosterone residing in the other bedroom of our apartment.
HOW do parents and teenagers ever survive? H... Read more
Since Hubs was so good to me, and I shopped until I almost literally dropped for my adopted nursing home residents' Christmas gifts, today I wrapped. After I shopped a little more. ... Read more
The Amazing Incredible husband does it-AGAIN
And I am still in shock. I went to the pharmacy this morning to get new rubber tips for my crutches. They wear out every 3-4 weeks. (Don't get me started on "durable medical equipment"-it won't be pretty) They are still out of stock. The hurrica... Read more
T'was the day after Thanksgiving...
And my shopping is nearly done, the budget isn't too badly strained, the rent is paid early, and I'm about dead.
I got lots of things that are being used early-memory foam mattress toppers (I got three king size ones 2" thick. Folded 2 in h... Read more
Not exactly what I had planned this time last week. Not only is my husband still working (which I half expected) my son is already gone for most of the day. Deer hunting. I said he could because all the tags have been paid for and the season end... Read more
Just got off phone with Husband. He will not be home for Thanksgiving again this year. I could go home and crawl in bed and cry for the rest of the day. But I won't. I'm too thankful that this year is still better than last. Last year I was upse... Read more
Ready for the holiday?
Yes...and no. We still don't know if Hubs will make it home (at least this year its because he's busy working, not because his truck had a fire or is broke down. Like last thanksgiving, then christmas!) Last year, I was thankful that the fire ju... Read more
Finding my way back on track
Well, I just got out of Dr's office (yes, again!) And we are going with a water pill to see if that helps with the swelling. I'm up another 2.5 pounds :( so with clothes the scale says 295. Which is not HORRIBLE (especially considering the thing... Read more
This is probably NOT going to be the blog you expect. I do not have one negative thing to say about her, except that she lives too far away!
She is an amazing, loving, supportive woman that I dearly love. (Her son is pretty ... Read more
Happy Birthday, Daddy
Today would have been my Dad's 74th birthday. I did really good today, even with not feeling well, I held myself together and did what needed doing (except water class, I did go to Dr instead). Now, I'm tired, sore, and missing him something ter... Read more
Skipping class-sick :(
I had every intention of going to my class today. Then I didn't sleep well, and woke up with my head killing me, nose running, ears itching, etc. So I called the Dr. Instead of class, I'm going to Dr. I went last month when I felt this starting,... Read more
Son made callbacks!!
He said he got stuck singing the male part for every girl auditioning today. There were other guys there, ... Read more
