Just hope we can sell in this "down market." My knee was replaced about 4-1/2 months ago and am still having difficulty with bending and doing housecleaning and the like and a lot of that will have to be done before even putting the house on... Read more

I was recently informed the city I live in is repaving the streets and putting in curbs. They estimate our bill (just our house) will be $8 to 12,000 and if we cannot pay it they will add it to our taxes plus interest and it has to be paid off ... Read more

This happened when I was single X2....I used to go to low cost concerts, particularly jazz (by myself).... Anyhow, I went to see a group called AMAM (angry middle aged men). It was a quartet. I got to the concert a few minutes late and sa... Read more

I don't remember doing anything in particular to aggravate my back, like lifting something I shouldn't have (over 10 lbs for instance) or bending or twisting...the only thing I did that seemed difficult yesterday was walking up and down a small ... Read more

I think I am probably a terrible procrastinator. I once bought a book entitled Procrastination but never got around to reading it. The Procrastinator's Club doesn't have meetings cause no one would get around to attending. This is proba... Read more

Yesterday I had that weird "allergic reaction" with burning arms, face, neck chest and itching. I had to punch out early for a long lunch and it went away after I rested and had something to eat. I lost only 45 minutes of work and so had to st... Read more

Napped in the car while hubby had his whirlpool and steam room visits. I actually fell asleep for a cat nap of about 20 minutes. I went to bed early and think I may have actually gotten some real sleep last night as I did not feel as much ... Read more

The original plan yesterday was to get to my friend's house by 8:30 but I didn't leave until then. Halfway to her house I ran into a total traffic standstill near Lake Calhoun and had to find an alternate route around Cedar Lake, then through d... Read more

I had to get up this morning at 6:00 as I am taking a friend and another friend of hers out for a Sunday breakfast (quiche is on the menu). Not sure what I will order as I haven't been to this place before. My friend does not drive and her fri... Read more

I have been fantasizing (yep, checked it on spell check) about retiring lately because it has been so hard to sit at work, to walk to and from my car at various places, go up and down stairs (avoiding when possible) and sitting for prolonged per... Read more

I was ready to go home from work yesterday and punched out...then I made a pit stop and realized I wasn't done working yet as on Tuesdays and Thursdays I start an hour later so have to work an hour later....It sure was tempting to jump in my car... Read more

I have tried staying active at a low level but the overall pain level is not much better yet. I think I am having a flare up of fibromyalgia and everything hurts. Have to keep moving although at a slower pace. Things should get better when I ... Read more

Overdoing on my one mile walk for the Arthritis Foundation (walked a mile only but there were hills, little ones) has caused me to reassess my lofty goals I set last week of exercising 1 hour a day. For now I will be doing around 30 to 45 minut... Read more
