Cathy it is not in the nerve or jaw it is in the muscles and it gets swollen too, I had this before and have found that heat helps it to feel better and gets the swelling down. I know they always say ice but ice makes it hurt more. Glad that he got the door frame fixed and that you might be able to do your test with the people that taught you.

Deni hope that they find the fox soon. Don't want anyone to go through those shots or any pet to get that either.

Just rested today and my son cooked the meat and I fixed the veggies. When I get those flares in my face it seems to take allot out of me. I think that happens because it also messes with my ear canal. Hopefully it will not hit the other side. It does do that.

Rick and Melissa hope all is well with you both

Hello
Been doing homework/reading/studying everyday and taking time out for errands, cleaning, me time etc...I was able to put 1 coat of paint on the outside door frame after the handyman fixed it. It will need another coat. Today or Monday I will get to that as both days we're not expecting rain and the temps will be in the 40's. From the weather reports, it will be colder and then I won't be able to paint.

I was out doing errands yesterday when it started to hail/snow and had some rain mixed in. It was about 38 degrees. It only lasted for about 5 minutes and then stopped. A small taste of what's to come.

My Coding teacher emailed everyone...she has been talking to the head of her department who decided if there were enough students interested, they would try to get a date/time set up for the state exam at my school, which they have done before. I can then transfer to my school location and take the test with my teacher running it. This will be a lot less stressful to be in familiar surroundings with someone I know running the test...and I lot closer too.

Deni, very scary about the fox and definitely sounds rabid. I had a fox appear in my backyard once at dusk time and it was very nervous and jumping at every noise. The fact that it came at you like that during the day...so glad you were able to get to safety.

Dorothy, very nice pic of your husband and so sorry for your loss. I know it must have been a difficult time for both of you when he was sick. Is it nerve pain on the side of your face or is it joint pain in the jaw?

Rick and Melissa, hope you are both having a good week!
Gotta go make some breakfast and get my day started.
Cathy

Good Morning All,

What a handsom man your husband was Dorothy. He looks like a kind man also. So sorry for your loss.

No one has found the fox yet that we know of. The police were there later that day looking for him. So we wait and hope they find him. Don't want Cujo in the neighborhood. LOL. It did not feel funny Wednesday morning.

Breakfast is done Time to eat. Deni emoticon .

He is my husband that passed this past February from two cancers. Hope that they find that fox too since there is a daycare there.

Got up early and went and had my blood work done and did a little shopping and then came home but my right side of my face was hurting real bad. Put some heat on it since I know that it helps with it when it happens. My lupus is acting up on the right side and I know from past that it will also go to the left after it is done with the right. After getting the food put away I layed down and had heat on it and then fell asleep. Woke up around 5 and my son cooked dinner (ok he cooked the meat), but at least he cooked since he knew that I was not feeling good.

Good Morning All,

Dorothy a new picture. May I ask who that is? Yes that was very scary with the fox. Dale says the police were there and looking for him. Hope they find him. There is a daycare place across the street. Hope the police said something to the Daycare people.

Got to leave early today. Errands to do and get home before Friday afternoon traffic starts.

Gotta run and have breakfast. Deni emoticon

That is good that the doctors appt went ok. That is scarry about that fox and I agree that it sounded rabid too. Those are noturnal animals and are very seldom seen during the daytime. Glad that you got inside safely and that the animal did not get you. Hate to hear that you would of had to do if you did not. That is over 20 shots to get rid of rabies Hope Dale had a big stick with him when he walked you back to the car. He would of needed it. So if it happens again make sure that he has a big stick to fight off that animal.

Mowed the lawn today and also did about 15 minutes on the trampoline. Not much else today will have to finish up things tomorrow after I get my blood work done so that I have it for next weeks appointment with my family doctor and then the next week after it will be my eye appointment. I will be seeing my Rheumy next month.,

Good Morning All,

The Doctors appt went OK. Won't know much till I get my blood test results back in a few days. After my appt had to stop and do some errands. Well left the house at 6:45 and did not get home till 11 AM. I could not move for about an hour. When I dropped Dale off at work there was a fox out front of the place. I got out of the car and he went right for me. I went running in the building yelling Dales name. Got in the building and the fox hit the glass door. I think it was rabid. Dale walked me to the car. Very scary!!

Breakfast is almost done. Must go Deni emoticon

Deni hope that it went well with the doctor. Let us know what happened.

Cahty I know that you will be very busy in the next couple of weeks studing for the test but you can do it and I do believe that you will pass with flying colors too.

Did not do much today, I think the heat got to me. I did go out to my garden and took the cantalope off the vine because it is getting rip and I don't want the animals to get it before I had a chance to taste it. It is mostly orange and has the smell that it is rip too. It is small but that is ok. I did not plant it and I still have at least three or four others in different sizes that are growning and also my tomato plant has a tomato on it too.

Cathy I spoke too soon and today had to put the AC back on because it got too hot. In the winter I have a gas furnace and that we only put on when it gets around 50. When the sun is out here in Florida it get allot warmer unless we get that cold artic wind down this way and that only happens about January time. Most days it is warm enough not to have the heat on. We just set it at a certain temp but then turn it down to sleep or it gets too hot at night here in the house.

Deni hope that you feel better and take care of yourself. Get plenty of rest too.

Did get some of my plants transferred into bigger pots and will finish the rest tomorrow and then work on the fridge to get it fixed so that I can have crushed ice again. Got a fridge from my neighbor and it just needed a new ice crusher because it was rusted and then an new tank to keep the water that you drink from the fridge and that is the part that I need to finish and then get my kids to hook it up and test it to make sure that it does not leak. Then I will be able to have crushed ice again.

Hi all
It has been very cold here too, down into the 20's and 30's at night and only up to the 40's during the day....but it is the Fall, so guess I shouldn't complain. Deni, hope you are feeling better with your cold. Dorothy, not having to put the a/c on does save on the electric bill but for the winter it's the heat bill and it's dark so early the lights are on longer.
I can't eat the beans either....and I've tried every suggestion. But I can eat canned beans as I make chili in the winter.

Rick, I only have 1 clock that changes automatically plus the cell phone, the rest I have to do manually. When I worry about the alarm, I do the same thing, wake up a lot and then wake up before the alarm goes off. I hate that it is dark before 5pm.

I had an exam yesterday for Pathophysiology and we could leave when we were done so I headed over to my sons house to help my DIL for awhile with the kids as she had a new 2 1/2 year old starting and wasn't sure how he would do. The first day went well but she is giving it a trial period as this little boy has never had to share or been around other kids before.

My Coding teacher is going to help find some study guides for those of us taking the state exam next month. The website where we signed up has all kinds of guides and practice exams but they are expensive.

The lawn guy finally came and did a clean up and the handyman finished with the door. He asked me about the mice issue from the summer and if I was having anymore trouble...I guess a lot of people in the park are having mice problems. So glad I don't have to deal with that anymore. He seems to think it's going to be a rough winter...lots of snow and colder than normal. Let's hope he's wrong!

Gotta get back to the homework, have Coding class tonight.
Cathy

Good Day All,

The Pats beat the Steelers yesterdat big time 55 to 34. They were playing like the old Pats. What a time for New England Fans. Red Sox winning the Series and the Pats playing so well. I am in seventh heaven.

My beans came out very good. I love the cool weather because I can have the oven on without sweating. Helps keep the house warm too. Never had the problem with gas after eating beans Dorothy. Guess we are lucky.

Rick the house smelled great and warm.

Dorothy glad you got some rest. A day like that helps alot.

My washer is calling my name. Have a great Day everyone Deni emoticon

Deni still have to do that but will before I go to bed tonight. Glad that you both were able to get the rest that you both needed and enjoyed each other too. I heard that if you put baking soda in while it is soaking you don't have the musical noise either.

Rick I usually have to manually change the clocks back don't have all that fancy ones that do it themselves. Plus it also helps to see if they need new batteries too on the ones that have batteries. Need to somehow get the smoke detector checked too. They are both up high because we have what they call cathedral ceilings.

Just rested today since I did not sleep well last night. Did not get to sleep until after about 4 in the morning. Not sure what is going on with that. The weather is cooler here and I am able to turn off the AC and that is great because that means a lower electric bill.

Dorothy

Morning all,

Deni, the sound of the beans filling the air with their aroma sounds wonderful!

Most of our clocks change automatically but I never have trusted them to do so, tho they always have.
I kept waking up to check the clock to make sure it changed so the alarm would go off in time. and of course I woke 15 min before the alarm went off.

Church this morning, then a quick trip to Lowe's then back home to the fence work.

It got up to 83 yesterday, and from the looks of it it will be the same today.

Have a good day all!

Rick

Good Morning All,

Hope you all remembered to turn your clocks back this morning. If not you can turn them back 1 hour and go back to bed for the hour LOL.We had a wonderful day yesterday. We vegged out all day and had soup and bagels for supper so there was not much clean up after. We watched a movie and went to bed. Today I am going to make homemade baked beans and cornbread with some all beef hot dogs. Soaked the Jacob Cattle Beans over night and will start them late morning. Love the way the house smells when the beans are cooking. Get all that done before the Pats game at 4:45 PM. Next week is their bye week.

I think we are going to have some nice weather this week. If so I will get the windows finished. Must clean them where the stickers were. Then I can put up the clean curtains.

Must close for now. Have a great week Deni emoticon
