Good Morning!

Hope all is well with everyone.  BC, hope the cat finds it's way home soon and is okay.

Had a nice lunch with best friend.  I think is solitude of having to be attached to the bone stimulator 10 hours a day and not enjoying his beach walks or his acquaintances there is weighing him down and he's getting lonely.   He's even thinking about moving to a different community when he gets better for more interaction, and asked if maybe I would consider being a room mate.  Kind of took me aback.  Who knows what the future will bring.

Eye doc says eyes are healthy and no change in prescription needed.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Morning Tweety

Quieter day at work yesterday, which was nice

Didn't sleep great last night as I woke up with a headahce.  Took some acetaminophen and was able to get back to sleep

Had to clean up a hairball this morning, which wasn't fun.  The cat hasn't had any this whole year, now she's had 3 in the last 2 weeks.  Hopefully this will be the last of them

Had to throw out my petunias, they were attracting swarms of tiny flies or gnats.  Oddly enough my Christmas cactus and bamboo plant don't have this problem, perhaps because their soil get dry between waterings, which are less frequent than for the pentunias

So kinda tired this morning but mananging.  Won't meet J tonight as he's leaving for CA early tomorrow morning

No rain yesterday and no rain for a while in the forecaset for at least a few days, which is nice

Good Morning!

Tweety - It's sad that having to undergo that bone stimulator for 10 hours is so isolating. Having to miss those beach walks is almost like pulling a scab open to a healing wound. It's interesting, though, that your friend is considering moving to a more active community, and asking you to be his room-mate. Decisions, decisions. Who knows what the future will bring. 🙂

Joe - Nice to read that your work day, yesterday, was a "Q" one. Hope today's work day is "Q", too. Sad to read that you had to throw out your petunias.

Been up for quite a while working on that 7PM dance video. My obsessive-compulsiveness is kicking in, which is lengthening the editing process. Ugh! After I'm done typing here I'm going to go for a nice walk outside before it get too hot and humid. My butt is hurting from all of this sitting. (Whine!)

Amy is downstairs practicing for the musical. I'm having to wear my headphones during the film-editing (and audio-editing) process. I'm getting to know, by heart, all of the songs she's singing. L O L! 😄 Can't wait for her to go to the theater for today's rehearsal so that I can use my studio speakers. 

Nothing much else going on. It's the same-old, same-old.

BCgradnurse - Hope you find your kitty and is OK! It is distressing, for sure.

Well . . . Gotta go for a walk now! Amy is singing, "Storms a Brewing" for the 1000th time! Ugh! 😂! 

Cheers! 🙂

Tweety: I hope your friend's healing goes faster. 

Ted: Your music is beautiful to listen to!

Joe: I hope you get rest and feel less tired after today.

Husband is eating crumbled corn bread with a teaspoon of sugar and covered with buttermilk with a spoon. His Mom's ten kids all love it for breakfast. I use extra bran in cornbread along with whole grain flower because old people re often constipated.

A FUN-FILLED WEDNESDAY!

Nannie's been totally out to lunch ALL day. I got up for an early PT appt...was upstairs about 20 minutes moving around. Never heard a thing. When I went downstairs to open the drapes in the den, there is Nannie, kneeling at her bedside, pantless,  with a pillow under her knees. I know she wasn't praying! Couldn't tell me how long she'd been there, how she got there, but did say why she didn't call out..." I didn't want to disturb anybody."  🙄   

Lady, you currently have FREE help, which you try your dead-level best NOT to use when you need it the most. How about we hire you a CNA to sit and watch you all night long? Then she would keep you off the floor. We can also bring in the portable toilet to sit beside your bed.  ("I'm not pissing in one of those things!" she spit out.) On the other hand, if you don't call out for our help and you happen to fall and crack your head, would you really lay there cold and bleeding because you don't want to disturb us? She scoffed, "Well, THAT'S not going to happen!" to which I appended, "Said the lady with the broken wrist."

Then she's searching her chair because the "fan" on her cast has come off and she can't find it; "What FAN? on your cast? for what??!!"----- "What do you THINK a fan is for?!! To BLOW!" 

Later:  showed and explained to hubby how her wrist cast can make coffee by the cup. Then it was "take me back to MY house; call the church and tell them that somebody called and wants my house. Get that paper I gave you....where'd that other little girl go to? Is she coming back? ( my "nurse-mode-person" is nicer than my at-home + off-duty person, I'd say!) Also has begun pulling and picking on the cast once again. Pouting that we won't quit "blaming her" for every single little thing she does. Oooookay then!

Went to my PT appt; it always makes me feel better. Turned in my "Pain Diary" for post nerve blocks, and one of the doc's nurse called, wanted to clarify the aching pains, and Dr. B. wanted to know if I was interested what we had talked about, having the nerve endings...?...cauterized. (Though the nurse spoke quite technically and professionally....when she said "burned".  HA! Sounded like me!) Anyway I don't remember much of what we said about it, so I asked to be able to talk to him about it. Bad idea. Just give me the paper that explains the procedure!!! Fer cryin' out loud! 

NOW, I have to wait for the nurse to look at his schedule to see when they can fit me in, and call me back. Jeez, we could talk about it in 5 minutes or less, why do I have to make a whole appt for that? And then if I said "Yes", how many more weeks would/will I have to wait for THAT appointment? The more I think about it, the more I feel like calling them and telling them to leave the procedure description at the front desk so I can go by and read it.

Oh the world is a weird, terrible, funny, beautiful place to live!

Hi, had my hospital follow-up visit today. I reported that I was still having pain around my incision and into my arm, so they did an ultrasound that was negative for a clot.  I was given the okay to alternate ibuprofen with tylenol and to take routinely. And I made it clear that that I didn't want to see a certain staff person, so that got changed. Then back to work and dealt with the crazy one. I just had to listen to her hand off and then she left. And then she came back because she couldn't find her phone. And then she left again. 🙄. Weather continues to be nice, in the 80s. I got a little sunburn yesterday at the waterslides with the grandsons. I had then spray my back with sunscreen, and they missed a spot on my shoulder. 

Joe, I have had issues trying to post pictures too. After I upload a file, I have to click on the plus sign that appears in the thumbnail picture and that inserts in my post. But I have a mac, so maybe it's different. 

Tweety, wow, BFF's suggestion seems like it would be a shock. 

Ted, I am sure you and Amy will be glad when this latest production is done. Yay for earphones. 

Herring, that sounds like the way my in-laws used to eat corn bread. I think they would put some sort of beans on it too. I like my just plain, with a little butter. 

Stars, I bet your PT visits are good for your psyche as well as your pain. Medical offices, man. I have had my fill for the year, and yet they just keep telling me to come back. Bleh

Greetings to everyone

Yes, it does me good to go to PT knowing that I am motivated and am getting the help I need, doing it carefully, not pushing myself too hard, but going at it slow and steady. AND IT GETS ME OUT OF THE HOUSE, TOO! 😂

Tweety, Um, you with a room-mate? Even w/ a BF, though, I'd think twice. I know how much I used to LOVE my time alone, and the quiet, and doing or not doing what I felt like at any point in time...*sigh*....It has taken me a loooong time to be able to tolerate someone other than a dog or cat, breathing in my vicinity! I'll tell you something, it is very hard to get lost in a creative endeavor when you know there are two other people in the house, and even with a closed door, you know you are apt to at any point, get interrupted. But anyway, that's just MHO, and look who's tawkin'...the one who just moved 2 & 1/2 hours from what was home for thirty-ish years. So take this all with a grain of organic sea salt. 😉

What's life, but change? I've moved plenty of places in my lifetime, some moves shocked others, some shocked even me! T'warn't dull, but there were times I was glad a particular episode in my life, for whatever reason, changed!

Hey there, Joe, Ted, and herring! J22, please secretly record co-worker dingbat and send me a copy. I need a good laugh. 

Nannie continued to have a "terrible, horrible, very bad day" right up to bedtime. {Small chuckle when Nannie called hubby an "S.O.B!" and hubby said, "That doesn't speak very well of YOU, momma."}  Anyway, her Dr,'s office will receive an early call: Less medicine? more medicine? different medicine? She did the typical "I'm leaving!" and that was a circus of repetitive activity, her struggling to hold her monster purse in her 'good hand' and -shudder- pushing the knuckles of her right hand down on the chair arm, half-falling (one of us was hovering right there, just in case). She crashed backwards into a wall of family photos before hubby caught her.

This won't ever happen, but yes, it would be nice if she could  really know and accept what she's always bragging on, ie, she IS 90 (in a month.) and therefore realize that some limits might be required; if you don't acknowledge them, you might find yourself dealing with consequences. But I know that is just a pipe dream, ne'er to manifest!

Being 90 and having been crippled in her youth are the two trump-cards she uses. Now her brain is crippled by swiss cheese --I really would love to see a scan of her brain.

-- So, blah-dee-blah-blah and like that and like that.

Sleep well, work easy, stay safe, and remember:

OBEY GRAVITY!    IT'S THE LAW!
