It sure feels good to not have pain. I took my morning meds & used the TENS unit. Enjoyed coffee from my new Keurig machine. Read my devotional books. Making soup today.

It is 19 degrees outside so I will stay in today.

My new hearing aids seem to help but still adjusting to wearing them with my glasses.

Hope your pain is low today, too!

I did some Christmas shopping on Amazon yesterday. I was pleased to see special prices on TENS unit so I bought one for my sister. My biggest purchase was for myself. They offered hearing aids for $70.00 each. Regularly $200. I have tried cheaper ones before without success so not sure they will work for me but decided to try. The reviews were mostly 5 stars so I guess they work for many. Fingers crossed!

I was exhausted yesterday so missed out on birthday celebrations for my great grandsons. I am feeling better today so will try to get some work done around the house.

Enjoy your day!

Karen hope you had a good Thanksgiving. We went to family dinner at nieces.. Very noisy and I came home with a headache.

Now taking Jessi to work. She works 8 to 4:30 today. Then she is going over to my Moms to help her put up her tree.

Don't do black Friday but sometime this afternoon I need to get a script from Walmart. Forgot it the other day when I was there... Ugh!!

Hope you have a great day and a great weekend.

Hugs...

Hi Karen... No I have not left the team.. Just don't get here much. It gets crazy around here when school starts.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving. Blessings to you.

Dotty... I am not sure if the cupping is helping but I do know the massage feels great. One of the ladies I go to uses CBD cream & that massage feels wonderful.

I bought a TENS unit & I do think it helps. I had some lab work done & good news ... I am not diabetic. The test shows my Liver numbers are up so not sure what my rheumy Dr.will say. Perhaps I will have to go off of Diclofenac which is my arthritis med.

That leaf blower is pretty expensive. Maybe you can get it on a discount day.

Hi! Karen I do not believe I have ever heard of cupping. Does it help? Hope you are doing well.

Our weather is wacky here getting ready for a cold spell and the weather guy says we could see some flurries tomorrow... with a high of 40. It is raining right now.. Has been for a couple hours now.

I raked the yard for about an hour before work this morning then my back was crying Uncle... so I figured I best stop.(or I would have trouble at work). Did get about 7 garbage cans full of leaves drug up to the curb.

Tommy bought us a leaf blower but the battery only works for about 15 minutes then needs to go back on charger.. So we are thinking we should take it back and get something different.. A friend said an electric one. He paid 180.dollars for it..

Well I need to go watch the weather and what is left of the news. Also will watch SWAT on demand since I did not watch it last night.

Hope you have a good evening. Hugs.

I am trying to find the right balance in helping others with the energy I have. My granddaughter is trying to raise her 3 kids without her X husband's support. She took a daytime factory job since kids are in school. She gets them out of house at 430 & to sitters then to work. Sitter charges 5.00 an hour. She usually has them less than 3 hours a day but tomorow school is delayed 2 hours. I volunteered to keep them & take them to school at 10 to save her money. Praying they don't tax my energy. I want to be a positive in their life.

Hi Karen.. It is not so much being on my feet as it is the physical part of the job.. pulling down the hose and rinsing dishes pushing them thru the dishwasher or taking them out the other side.. The lifting etc.. It was not as rough out on the serving line.. But it is what it is for now.

I just turned 68 the 7th of this month. But anyway I just need something part time and was hoping that I could find a receptionist position or some front office job..

Hope you have a good night..

Good Morning.. How are you doing? Getting ready for work.. Still in the dish room and I am looking for another job. The dish room is a lot more physical than being on the serving lines. Although they don't bother you much in the dish room.. lol..

Hope you have a good day.

Doctors appt at the VA went well. She said I get an A+.. Two doctors are happy with the numbers on my blood work.. I just am not happy with them.. They go up and down from one time to next.. (yes they are in normal limits) But I want them to go down and stay down. Want to get off these meds.

Will have to work on the weight some more.. Although it is hard getting into a routine with work and then running kids to their jobs.. Lol...

You would think as much as I sweat during the day at work that would help but it hasn't.

Well need to make some supper for Gavin. I had a late lunch so may just eat a salad later.

Hugs.. Have a good evening.

Hi Karen. No I have not found another place to rent. Hopefully they will wait till next year. I have an email from Sue my landlady which said I could have 2 years.. That was August 2018.. So by that I have till Aug. 2020.. I sent that to her daughter (who is the one who called to tell me I needed to move by end of July).. Have not heard from her since.
I will file my taxes the 1st of Feb so with that and what I put back this year I should have enough to move. (I don't get a lot back because I don't make much)..

So right now I am really in a limbo state. Don't know if they will call and say sorry but you can't stay in the house.. Or if they will try to evict me... of which they have no legal grounds.
So it is something in the back of my mind at all times.. As I try to continue getting by each day. School starts the 20th.. I go in to work on the 16th and the 19th to prep the cafeteria for first day.
Don't really want to go back. Just hard to find a part time job doing anything else.. especially at my age.

Hope that you have a great day. emoticon emoticon

Home from the VA clinic in York. Had an eye appointment. No change in my script. No bleeding behind the eye. The cataract in the left eye is a little worse than the one in the right. I did have him order me new glasses with different frames. The frames I have now the ear piece keeps sliding.

Thomas went with me and he drove home. (in the past I have done it but it was nice having someone else drive back after dilation.)
I still had to use the shades they gave me because the sun kept peeping out from the clouds.
Now I am sitting in the house and letting my eyes return to normal. Will have new glasses in a couple weeks.
Did get a load of laundry started. Jessica has her first day of orientation this afternoon.

Now I need to run upstairs and see if washer has stopped. Hope that everyone has a good day.


During summer.. my days just roll into each other but still glad it is Friday. Have a great day and a wonderful weekend

Good afternoon y'all.

Karen sorry to hear about your doggie.

House hunting is not going so well. Have not been able to find anything affordable and when I do they won't allow pets. We have a doggie.

Today it is raining and I just do not feel like doing anything.. Although there is lots to do.. LOL
Got up thinking I would pack up some books and get some things off the walls.. But it is 2pm and none of that has happened.

Well I hope that you have a great afternoon. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Graduation day.. It is a bittersweet day. Hope y'all have a great Friday. Will try to be around more now that school is out and nor working.. Hopefully that is..
I have to find another place to live. The landlady I rent from is older than me and is having health issues. So her daughter called to tell me I need to find somewhere else to live so they can come in and fix whatever needs to be done and sell the house to relieve some of the stress and anxiety off her Mom. So not sure.. She had originally said summer of 2020.. That meant that Tommy would be graduated also.. now may have to move him his Senior year. Ugh..

I do believe my pain has been less since I am taking essential oil that my daughter got for me. I still take my pain meds but one less. It is not cheap but daughter pays for it. She has a friend with fibro that is off meds & only taking essential oil.

It was so nice & cozy under my electric throw that I did not want to leave. I always head there first thing in the morning to read my devotional books & have a cup or two of coffee. I can read my Spark post on my phone but cannot respond. I drug myself to my laptop to share this beautiful pocture with all of you.



Dottie... I wrote your name on my list.

Have not tried Curcumin. Do use Turmeric but not a lot of that. I also partner it with Ginger.

yes raising teens today especially by oneself is tough.

Have a good rest of your weekend.

So good to hear from you Dottie. It so hard to be raising teens in today's world.

Have tried curcumin for your arthritis pain. It helps me.

Hi Karen.. I apologize for being MIA.. Just life has been so crazy. Kids and I are okay.. Well that is what I always say.. lol.. Had to put Tommy on meds for anxiety and depression. He seems to be doing good on them.. I went to GNC and Vitamin world and got homeopathic meds. Gavin is doing his 2nd semester of freshman year online as he does not like the high school environment. Jessica graduates in May.
I am still working at the school cafeteria.. although some days it is hard. The arthritis in my hands and knees is getting worse. Plus I have been having a lot of pain in my hips and lower back.. Mostly probably cause I can not seem to get this weight off.. It drives me crazy.. A lot of things to do around the house.. and no motivation to do it..

Have to find a place to live this spring. Will downsize so that means even more stuff to do.. lol.. Sometimes I think I will just rent a storage unit and put everything in there till I feel like going through it.

Again sorry I have not been here since forever ago.. Will try to do better.

Hope you are doing well.. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Well here we are the last day of this year. I will try to stay awake to watch the ball drop in NYC. New Years Eve has never been a big night for me but I do have memories of a few. some happy & others sad.

I like to choose some new books every year & this year I am excited to read a little book called JESUS TODAY written by SARAH YOUNG. Sarah is from Australia. She wrote this book as she suffered from CFS. It will be extra good to read it knowing she suffered as many of us do.

I do look forward to 2019 & hope it brings many happy moments to all of us.
