Irene's last hurrah
Tuesday, August 30, 2011      6 comments

Not long after I posted my last blog on Sunday, around 7 p.m., a tree knocked out our power taking down the lines on the next street over. So, we have spent just about the last 48 hours without power, using candles, electronic candles, and makin... Read more
Good night Irene!

We have been fortunate. Although a tree went down over a neighbor's house, two houses away, it did not crush the roof. The tree men have been there cutting branches most of the afternoon. There was a small audience watching the activities from... Read more

Since it was pretty late last night once my son got his friends home safe, and got back home, I did not get outside to check the yard until a couple of hours ago. Except for a few little things that got missed in the dark, I was very impressed w... Read more

Today marked four days that I was a passenger in our car. Today I braved actually getting my hair washed and cut at the salon! Today is just a few days before hurricane Irene, and I think we are as set as we can be - water, batteries, medic... Read more

Those are the main topic words on my visual board, (my current background). They encompass my goals and how I approach my day. I am strong (stronger than when I was so weak I couldn't turn over without help). Yes, dragging or pulling onesel... Read more

I can walk - sometimes with a cane, sometimes with the walker, sometimes on my own. A lot on my own during the day, and the walker first thing in the morning. I am eating smaller portions, and stopping when I hit full. I tolerated a l... Read more
Humming - old song, new words

It's a play on an old song ... I feel pretty.... etc. well.... I feel ... skinny... It's not that the scale shows a whole lot of difference, but it is hard to weigh when you can't bend down to look, and you wear a back brace that add... Read more
The changes that happen when you're not watching
Saturday, August 20, 2011      7 comments

Everything changes. No bout a doubt it, it does (no doubt about it - I can be verbally dyslexic at times, and this is one of my fun little mix-ups). It happens whether you want it to, whether you plan it to, whether you anticipate it or not.... Read more

Here I am, officially resting after spending nearly 3 hours at the doctor's office. I waited in the waiting room an hour and a half (not bad really, lol), then once I got in the office, the staples were removed - all 22 of them! The incision i... Read more

Yes, this is the proverbial hump day. I am resting on the camel's hump. If you want to really know what I am doing, that can sum it up in a heartbeat. RESTING. I really really really am resting. I am eating in moderation. Rea... Read more

Yes, I know, I love to misspell hotspital. It makes the barely bearable a little more fun. I have a tiny little black flying bug for company by the way. That and my happy meal smurf. I did not eat the happy meal, I never liked smurfs. I like t... Read more
