Val - was wondering when you were going to start a new thread!  Thank goodness you did!  Thanks!  I suppose I have to pop over tothe hangman game and give it a try.  Think Brenda has the game pretty well taken over  lol!  Lovely photo!  Like the way you framed it up!  Where is Sandra lately?  Missing her.

Hello to everyone else.  Just to let you know that today the news said that this is going to be the coldest day of the year.  It is 8:40 a.m. and the temp here is -36C or -33F.  Either way you look at it that is pretty darn cold.  Not looking forward to heading out this afternoon to the in-laws.  Not that I don't want to see them or anything, I just don't feel like freezing (sucky baby I am!) LOL!.  I have to keep this short as I am going to head into the kitchen soon to make them a casserole for their dinner,  Just to give them a day off of cooking, they are such nice people.


Well, I actually did overdue it yesterday and I fell asleep before I could take my meds.  Must be extra careful this morning to take them.  Can't miss twice now, can I?  My Dad always said (many, many years ago) if I had to rely on pills to save my life I would die.  How true that would be!  And that was when I was like a teen!  How some things never change huh?  lol!

Well, must fly, or at least move a little quicker, into the kitchen.  Wishing you all a wonderful, safe & happy and oh ya, a WARM day!

Good afternoon, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. It's about 1;15 pm as I start this post and it's almost 77F on our porch! Yes, we're in January but believe it or not we're not experiencing anything too out of the ordinary. Lows are in the upper 50's. Not much going on, just my usual reading and computer stuff. I'm also doing some "work" for MCRA, the Maine Coon rescue group I volunteer with trying to get an application prepared for processing.

 

Val, thanks for starting a new thread; it is much appreciated. Hope you got some great "me time" yesterday. You sure sounded busy as usual. Yes, it is hot and humid in the summer here. Love your sunrise picture yesterday and the picture today is gorgeous.

 

Brenda, I'll try to send you some of our sunshine. Hope you have a great summer too.

 

Sandra, I'm glad it's been nice there. What you don't think temps in the 70's are proper winter temps?!?!? L, S, and HE back at ya.

 

Pat, congrats on the hangman game. I should've been here earlier and I might've beat you to it! Oh well, maybe I'll get the next one if Brenda doesn't get it. Wow, -33F! I can't get over how cold that is. Absolutely not for me, I'd be miserable. Don't know how y'all who get really cold temps do it. I'm more of a warm weathe rperson. My favorite time is late spring/early summer when it's warm enough to go to the pool b'cuz the water's not cold {cold water hurts my bones} but not so hot that it's miserable outside. That usually means late April/early May here. Enjoy your time at your in-laws even though you have to go out in the cold. Bundle up good. Sorry you missed your meds last night. I've done that before and it's not fun. I take several different meds 5 times a day. I even set our alarm clock every morning for 5:00 to take my early am meds then I typically go back to sleep. At least until my cat, Osiris, wakes me up.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hugs all around....

Pat - that is cold - it might get to - 5 F here or a bit colder but that is about it - lately we have been getting into the 60's - nice but too hot for January in Colorado - still watering the trees!  We need snow!  Then summers have been getting about 110F - too hot for here - I like the 70's that would be nice -

Hi Brenda - glad you liked the sunrise - PhotoBucket is great with borders!


Darla - yesterday I did some organizing of things - something I had wanted to do for months - literally - just wan't feeling well - couldn't sleep but slept 9 hours last night skipping my exercise - might try that again soon!   Also fixed these ear-rings after more than a year - I had the colors backwards on one - not yet listed...


Sandra - hope you are OK - how is the roommate situation?

Hello everyone!

Just to let you know it is 9:37 and the temp is -37C which is -35F.  I must state again I am not fond of the cold weather either.  My bones hurt too Darla and I ache all day.  Since I don't have any meds for it that makes it a long day.  Plus these dumb "energy efficient" furnaces really suck.  "They" clain to work better but in my opion they don't.  What happens is they start up by blowing cold air to heat up then it blows warm air then cools down by blowing cool air.  WTF??  Pardon.  Dumb furnace.  Also the management put in new and "better" windows.  Guess what?  They are worse than the old ones.  You can feel the cold just by going near them.  Sure wish we could move!  Oh well.

Had a nice visit with the in-laws.  Hardly got any work done yesterday.  Must try to make up for that today.  Maybe.....lol.

I think I yammer too much sometimes!  Anyhow.....Wishing you all a great day!  Later buddies!!  Hugz!

Good evening, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. I spent today working for MCRA, the Maine Coon rescue group I volunteeer  with as the Adoption Counselor Manager. We got 3 applications in on one cat! So, I spent today getting 2 of them assigned to my Adoption Counselors while I processed the third one. That means I spent today alternating between the phone and computer  as well as writing up my notes on the application. Not much else going on, just my usual reading and computer stuff. It got up to the low 80's on our porch today!

 

Val, glad you got some things organized that you've been wanting to get done. Also, glad that you got so much sleep. The earrings are beautiful.

 

Pat, I'm so sorry that you suffer so much in the cold weather. I remember well how long days could be without pain medicine and to add cold like you get into the mixture and I'm not sure I could've coped. I admire you you for doing so. Sounds like the energy efficient heaters really su**. I can't believe you have to put up with that. Doesn't sound like they did right on the windows either. Glad you had a good visit with the in-laws. You don't yammer too much.

 

Brenda, great to see you here.

 

Sandra, how are you? How's the room-mate situation? Hope to see you soon.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Val, thanks for starting the new thread!  (I guess I need to make a new drop-in thread 3x a month!)  And beautiful picture & earrings!

 

Darla, your weather is too hot for me!  Good for you for the volunteer work you do w/ the MCRA!

 

Pat, your weather is too cold for me!  I'm glad you had a good visit w/ the in-laws & I hope you got alot done today!

 

Hi Brenda!

 

My landlord asked me again to write a list of reasons that my bad roommate is a bad roommate so he'll have it when he goes to court to evict her next week.  He thought he wouldn't need it, then changed his mind.  It's a good thing I didn't throw my last list out! 

 

Vallee, Patricia, Brenda, Darla & Wula!

 

Love, serenity , & healing energy to each of you!

Darla - see you made it back last night - well didn't sleep last night and not my fault - already have  sore throat but the eucalyptus honey syrup and tea should quench that with some Vitamin C!

Pat - our furn is real old and does the same thing - dumb - huh?  Too cold there for me especially since I have to take the dog out .

Brenda - It was actually 8 1/2 hours and sleep and still felt like "crap" - needs lots more - trying not to go out due to so many people sick but have to tomorrow to the store. 

Sandra - glad you kept the list - seems now that we have consistent wonderful people here that we need an extra thread at times. 

pray all stay healthy and warm - well Darla - am sure you will be warm.

May not feel great - but check this out!

Hi everyone!  Just popping in for a quick one!  Great pic Val!  Looks like it is wrapped in a warm fuzzy blanket, like I would like to be right now.  Today I want to get a few things done that I have been putting off plus I want to get to the store and my son wants me to drive him to the bank.  So darn cold....................

Anyhow, will chat more later!!  Take care my friends!!  Luv you all!!  Hugz..........

Good afternoon, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. I finished up the application I was working non for MCRA this morning and posted a write-up so the group can vote on the applicant. Anyway, that gave me a late start to Care2 again. Nothing much else going on, reading and computer stuff. It's shortly after 2pm  and is 84.7F on our porch right now! Yes, that's pretty warm even for us.

 

Sandra, yes, our weather is too hot for a lot of people. It's even worse on the coast  where we used to live. Glad you kept your list about your roommate. Hope she's evicted soon. L, S, and HE right back at ya.

 

Brenda, great to see you here.

 

Val, yes I made it back sometime after 7 last night. I was way behind on Care2 yesterday. I guess it's smart to limit your trips outside to the stores so you don't get sick. Someone from one of my other groups said her grocery store supplies wipes to wipe down the handles of the grocery carts. If yours doesn't maybe you can get some of those refill packs to take with you to the store and wipe the handles down. Beautiful sunrise, love the border!

 

Pat, great to see you here.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Well we were a pleasant 20 something F when I took out Baby - not bad - unfortunately do have to go out today -Pat -you are just too darn cold and Darla too hot - sounds like the stry of the 3 bears and we were just right - hehe

Darla - I always use those wipes and if they run out I have the anti-bacterial stuff in my car for your hands - I feel a bit better today and only have to go 2 places but already feel the exhaustion and achiness creeping in and only 7:40 AM.  But I'll make it - Foot hurting a lot!

I like that border on the photo also - found it in PhotoBucket. 

Sandra hope today is slower for you!

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Not much going on here today. Ray went to the grocery store early this morning and I read til it was time to get on the computer. It's 11:15 am as I start this post and alreaday 61F. Looks like we're in for another warm day. That's a typical winter here  which is bad when it does get cold b'cuz no one is prepared for or used to freezing temps.

 

Sandra, sorry you're so tired. Hope today's not as busy. Thanks for the L, S, and HE and the same back at ya.

 

Brenda, yes, I'll take this warm weather over freezing and below freezing temps anyday. I don't blame you for not liking the cold.

 

Val, the three bears, huh? I guess we do sound like that.Sorry you have to go out in the cold. Glad you use the wipes and the anti-bacterial stuff. Glad you're feeling a bit better though I'm sorry you're feeling the achiness and exhaustion already. Sorry also that you're foot is hurting. Keeping you in my prayers always.

 

Pat, just want you to know you're being thought of. Miss you.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Glad you guys like my photos - something I enjoy!  Need to get back into my fun contest groups but little time - and many of the topics I on't have photos of - oh well.

Darla - it isn't that cold here but just need more sleep - only got about 7 really last night and feel warm and achy - not as bad as the other day - have ice on my foot - already walked the dog - but need to water today since no precipitation.

Sandra - glad you are feeling better and slept - sleeping is SO important - I know I am lacking.

Brenda - hugs back!

Best photo I could get this morning.

Val - Cool photo!  Sure is dark out.  I don't walk well in the dark due to my illness.  Oh well.  so sorry about your foot.  Hope it gets better soon.  I would tell you to try and stay off of it but that would be just like talking to a wall!  lol.  

Sandra - Glasd you got some sleep in and that it wasn't too busy at work.  Thanks for the big hugz!  Same right back at ya!!

Brenda - How's it going?  How come you haven't won the hang man game yet? LOL!!  If I don't go to it steady I just can't seem to concentrate on it.  I did put in a good guess for you guys though.  Good luck.  Hope all else is going well with you.

Darla - So nice of you to say you miss me.  I miss being here too.  Sometimes I am justso busy.  I can't believe you have such nice weather while I am here freezinf my bum off!  lol.  Today it's not too bad, only -18C or 3F and no wind.  Too bad it's a decent day because I plan on staying in.  Maybe tomorrow I will go out.  I need a new bird feeder.  They don't seem to like the one I made.

So yesterday was an interesting day.  We started it out by going to the doctors for a renewal on our perscriptions then off the Safeway to have them filled.  While we waited we had coffee at Starbucks and we had never done that before.  First time I ever had a mocha latte.  Interesting.  From there, I dropped G off at home, picked up my youngest and went got gas (for the car! silly people lol), then on to pick up my other son from work.  Dropped them both off at my eldes'st appartment (the youngest one is spending the weekend) and then back home.  From there, G and I decided to go to the mall.  OMG!!  On a Saturday!!  It was mega busy!  Even worse than at Christmas time, I could hardly beleive it.  G did exceptionally well walking even though he took the walker for support (he doesn't use it anymore at home).  I bought two movies - The Karate Kid (the new one) & Slap Shot.  Then we went to Chapter where I purchased two books - Talking to the Dead & Shatner Rules (check out the titles online).  We did some looking around in the mall for a bit but the noise got to me so we decided to just come home.

After coming home for a while we thought we would just go and pick up some KFC and stay in and watch the new movies.  Such a wonderful Saturday.  We decided last summer that Saturday we going to be our "date" day even if it's just for a few hours or half a day.  In the summer it was going to garage sales.  Now we check out different shops or flea markets.  Not sure whats up for next weekend, but I'm sure it will be good.

And that's the story of my Saturday!   Wishing you guys a wonderful Sunday.  Think I will do some laundry.  Or something else like that........

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Not much going on here, just my usual reading and computer stuff.

 

Sandra, glad you got some sleep and that work wasn't as busy. Thanks so much for the L, S, and HE; sending some right back at you.

 

Brenda, I was surprised that you didn't have the hangman game figured out already.

 

Val,  glad it's not that cold. You sound like you're doing a bit better which is good. Sorry that there's been no snow or rain to water your plants. I watered mine yesterday. I think I lost one to the last freeze. All the leaves came off of it but the stem is still green so we'll see if it makes a come-back. Glad you enjoy doing your photos as we sure enjoy seeing them. Absolutely love today's photo ~ it's so dark and the moon is so beautiful. But you know how I'm partial to moons.

 

Pat, you sound like you had a wonderful if busy SAturday. Y'all sure were brave to tackle the mall on a Saturday! I don't get out much and do most of my shopping on-line if/when I get to shop that is. It's not a regular occurrence that's for sure. Ray does the grocery shopping an dsometime she'll take me to Wal-Mart. Speaking of which when they start bringing out their swimsuits I'll have to go b'cuz mine will be too big this summer! yippe!!!! Of course, I miss you when you're not here. Your temp is still way too cold for me. Sorry your birds don't like the bird feeder you gave them. Too bad you're not closer, I have some bird feeders you could have. My son used to buy my bird seed but after his divorce could no longer do so. So that means no bird seed for me right now b'cuz it's not in our budget either.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hello all!!  

Well, it's another Monday and I don't really have too many plans.  I do want to go to Dollarama to get a new bird feeder and do some house cleaning.  However, if I don't get off this computer (have been on it for 2 hours already lol) nothing will get done!


So I am keeping it short today.  You are all probably thinking - yes!  LOL.  No need to worry!  I'll pick up the slack tomorrow!  LMAO!!  Love the pic as usual Val!  Same back at you Sandra!  See you in hangman Brenda (if you haven't already won - lol).  Darla so nice to think of me and my birds!   Also wish I could brave a bathing suit!  Glad you need a new smaller one!  Kudos to you!!

Take care buddies!!  Hugz!

Good morning, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Not much going on here, just my usual. I have an appointment with my pain management doctor tomorrow afternoon. I'll get my pain pump refilled and my trigger point injections. It's 10:25am as I start this post and it's already 71F on my porch so looks like we're in for another warm, winter day.

 

Brenda, most of my plants are doing well. I wrap them when it freezes but I had one that obviously couldn't handle the temps even wrapped up. Summer is anothe rhard time on my plants as we get temps over 100F.

 

Sandra, thanks for the L, S, and HE. I wish you the same.

 

Pat, hope you get to the store for the new bird feeder. I know what you mean about being on the computer for so long. When I get on and finsih up all my click to donate things I come to Care2 where I can take anywhere from 2-4 hours to do all the things I do {groups, sign petitions, click to donate, and post on causes and news}. Hope you have a great day. If I get off the computer in time I may dust for Ray {he usually does the cleaning}. As for the swimsuit, I go out to th epool when noone is there! I'm also pleased I need a smaller one. It's very hard for me to lose weight.

 

Val, miss you. Hope to see you soon.

 

Take care and have a fantastic day.

It feels so good to be missed - had to take my husband to the clinic (routine) and then get some blood drawn - then vacuumed a bit and doing laundry plus preparing 15% off all my candles this week - you'll get an e-card soon - hehe - trying to do a sale a week -


It really wasn't that dark the photo just came out that way - if I have to walk at night I stay where I can see and don't go far.  Fell too many times last winter. 


Pat - I would have been exhausted with what you did Saturday - of course I am anyway and Brenda - yes I am trying to get more sleep but my back wakes me up around 3:30 AM daily - don't sleep much after that -my husband only leaves the house for appointments - like this morning - and 1x monthly when we get paid. 


Pat - I actually do stay off my foot a lot more than I used to - I sued to be on the go always - now I am mainly on the computer - and I don't look like a wall - I don't think.

Darla - I hope you didn't lose your plant - we need snow!!!

Sort-of flipping around here - Sandra - hope you are OK.

^thanks* all for the L, S, & HE!  I especially appreciate the healing energy since it still sounds like I am coughing up a lung, & I can't see my chiropractor for my shoulder pain & my hand going to sleep unless I pay $38 a visit.  But I'm doing my exercises religiously, so that should help.

Sandra - be careful with that - both my dad and my daughter had/has that problem - sounds like a pinched nerve - can you massage it somehow?  Is it snowing there?  Started here at 6 AM -

Brenda - I work all day long - in the winter mainly on the net ryging to sell things - I rpobably end up making minus 5 cents an hour - but I enjoy the creating - that is relaxing for me usually - in the summer is the garden too - oh well - I try and relax at night - started going to bed earlier and reading - but my back seems to want to wake me up at 3:30 every AM if the hot flashes don't get me first - hehe

Darla - I know you'll be here shortly......

Painted this awhile back and is now in a shell wreath I made.

Hi all!  No Val, you don't look like a wall!  LOL!!  Sometimes you just take advice like one though!  lol  

Gee we sure do have our problems here don't we?  Here's a new one for me.  I was very dizzy last night (more so than normal) so I was walking down the hallway and at the end I fell but landed up falling on the lovesaet.  Lucky, so I thought.  Somehow I managed to hit my hip (at the joint) just right.  Oh the pain!  I had trouble walking or even shifting in my seat.  Then going upstairs to bed was interesting.  I couldn't put weight on my left foot at all so I had to "baby step" it all the way up.  Oh the fun never stops here!  lol


Sandra - Sending you some healing energy for that terrible cough and pain you are having.  A chiro here can cost as much as $75 if you don't have insurance for it and I don't.  I haven't been to one in years.  Prayers for you also!

Brenda - Hey there!  Just thought you might need a hug so I am sending you one!

Darla - Went to the store but they didn't have a bird feeder.  I suppose I could have gone to another type of store but I didn't want to spend much on the feeder.  So when we got home I went outside and made the feeding holes larger (think that was the problem).  G said he saw some birds at it and then this morning I saw a new bird hopping around eating from it.  My son says only old people watch birds.LOL!!  So I'm old.  Beats the alternative LMAO!!!!!  It's also hard for me to lose weight too.  First because I just love food  and it loves me too! lol   Second, when ever I start to exercise my head pounds.  Plus I never have a day when I can actually exercise because something is always hurting.  Now it's my hip as I meantioned earlier.  Had to take 4 T3s last night (no, not all at once - 2 then 2 hours later).  I also tend to be an emotional eater and an over eater.


Also, forgot to mention, I love the picture you made and the photo too!  You are so talented!

Well, suppose I should move my butt off the computer.  I have to go to the store as they have a sale on cases of soup for a good price and I want to get a couple.  Plus I want to do some other things.  Hope this is long enough for you Brenda - 


Hope everyone has a safe and happy day!

Val, love the painting show us more of them. It's good that you are going to bed earlier and reading, reading helps you to relax. Shame about the hot flashes, I use to get them.

Pat, I am starting to wonder what will happen to you next! Please be more careful! I know what you mean about loving food I am the same mostly food I shouldn't eat, exercise what's that! Thanks for the hug, always need a hug! 10 out of 10 for the post!

See you tomorrow, hugs.

I went to the Dr. again today & the bronchitis still has a hold.  She gave me another round of a different antibiotic & another 5 days of steroids to reduce the inflammation.  We had about 1.5 inches of snow last night & wind today so it was cold!  Brrr!!

 

Val, the painting is great!  I hope you get more sleep & your back doesn't wake you at 3:30am tonight!

 

Pat, you aren't supposed to hurt yourself!    I hope you feel better soon!

 

Brenda & Pat, I love to eat too, especially ice cream & chocolate!  (Staying away from dairy while I'm sick since it makes me congested.)

 

Darla, I hope you are ok...

 

I plan on putting up another hangman game tomorrow - going to bed now...

Brenda - Thanks for the good rating on the post.  Sometimes I can write and other days I have to get off due to the amount of work I have to get done or my health.  Today it is due to the other work I need to get done.  I slept ALL day and ALL night so nothing got done at all yesterday.  Not really worried but I still need to get to the store and need to work on that laundry.  I am sure it will get done as I am finishing up my fouth cup of coffee as I speak!

Sandra - Hope that nasty bronchitis gets better.  I know what that is like!  Terrible stuff!  Perhaps the new meds will kill it off!  Extra healing to you!  We have been getting snow every day for the last I don't know how many days.  Getting tired of it.

Val - Hoping your back is getting better.  Also sending you some extra healing power.  I am trying to find some time myself for reading but I just can't seem to fit it in my day.  Have to work harder at it.  Perhaps if Ididn't play so many games on the computer??  lol

Darla - Where are you?  You are usually here before me.  I hope all is going well with you and you are just busy with other things right now.

Hi guys - Darla is having computer problems - she asked me to tell you guys -

Will try and remember to post more paintings here - that one was a bit different than most -

Pat - so sorry you fell - my husband falls a lot but living in a small trailer he usually falls into a wall or furniture and thank God we don't have steps - the county put in a ramp for him.  -16 C or about -4 F when took Baby out this AM - Pat you are COLD!  But -16C is actually about 9 F - sorry - am a smart wall - aren't I?????    Have started reading a little at night now - hope it lasts.  Going to cll the chiro and get an appointment for next week - my back is getting worse and no idea why - I do exercise a bit every night but eat out of boredom often - though look OK. 

Sandra - hope you feel better soon - this flu crap is horrible this year - Julie (daughter) seems to have it now too - luckily she got into see the MD yesterday- someone cancelled. 


Here is yesterday's photo:

Good afternoon, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Didn't make it yesterday b'cuz I had a doctor's appointment then we started having  computer problems ~ something to do with a video card I think. Anyway, today, Ray's got the computer rigged where we blow a fan into the compute rtower and it keeps the computer running. JUst don't know how long it'll work. Ray hopes to get the part for it today so he can fix the computer when he gets home from work. My doctor appointment went well, I got my pain pump refilled and got trigger point injections. We also made a change in one of my meds {my morphine} b'cuz my insurance wouldn't cover it at 5 times a day so I had  to cut down to 4 times a day. I just hope my pain doesn't increase b'cuz of it. Didn't get my plants watered yesterday like I planned to so will have to do so today. It's just at noon as I start this post and it is 62F. A bit cooler than it has been. Not much going on here, just my usual. Thanks for missing me everyone.T

 

Pat, oh my goodness, what a fall! How are you doing? I hope you get better soon. I've had some falls myself as I have blance issues and I get dizzy easily so I know how much pain you can be in after a fall. Falling on the loveseat probably kept you from breaking something though. Sorry the store didn't have a bird feeder. But it's great that you made the holes bigger on the one you have and that birds are now coming to it. I guess if only old people watch birds then I am old too! I love to watch birds and so wish bird seed was in our budget. My weight problem stems from the fact that I have hypothyroidism. I used to be a size 2-4 and started gaining weight for no reason but the doctor I was seeing at the time wouldn't listen to me. I had blood work done by a neurologist for something else and it showed that my thyroid was out of whack. I got the meds then but it took about 6 months for them to get the right dosage and by the time it was all said and done I was up over 200 pounds and wearing a size 20-22! I was devastated to say the least and very ticked off at my doctor {I switched doctors asap}. I'm now down to around 170 and wearing a size 14-16. NOt where I'd liketo be but much better than the alternative! Eventually I'd like to at least get  down to a size 10. I don't expect to ever be a size 4 again though everyone told me I was too thin when I was that small. Of course I love food too but I do try to watch what I eat and exercise as much as possible {which isn't much given my physical limitations}. You are way too cold for me!

 

Brenda, great to see you here.

 

Sandra, so sorry that you still have that bronchitis, you're having shoulder pain, and that your arm is going numb. I hope the new meds help the bronchitis. Did you ask the doctor about your arm? Wish you could get to the chiropractor. I don't know how much they are here as I was told once by my mom's chiropractor that a good chiropractor would never touch me. Thanks for the L, S, and HE; sending some right back at ya.

 

Val, your pictures are beautiful. I love the painting, you'll definitely have to show more of those. The one of Baby in the snow is awesome. Glad you got the snow you wanted. Thanks for telling the group about my computer problems. I'm lucky to be here this morning. So sorry your hubby flls alot. That's great that the county put in a ramp for y'all. I sure oculd use a ramp. The management will put one in but we have to pay for the supplies so we haven't been able to do it. The steps aren't too bad to get down though with my walker. Sorry your back is waking you up so early everyday. It's good  though that you're going to bed earlier and reading. Reading is relaxing and a great escape. I'm glad you stay off your foot as much as possible. I'm sure you're not a wall.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hugs all around....

Thanks everyone - going to the chiropractor Monday for my back - Darla glad you made it here - size 4 is probably too thin.

Just want to say hello to everyone - side-tracked this morning.  Daughter called and some lady sideswiped her new car (it is a 2011 but she got it 2 months ago) pretty badly - enough that the cars were stuck together -  the lady's car was worse and it was the lady's fault - she got a ticket -  but daughter on way to hospital to get checked out - her neck, back and right arm are hurting.

Good afternoon, all! Hope this finds y'all doing well and with things going great. Things are good here. Ray brought home a part for othe computer and fixed it. So, now I don't have to have the fan blowing into the computer tower! I got my plants watered yesterday but I didn't get on the exercise bike. I'm such a bad girl! It's just about 1:00 pm here and it's 68F so looks like we're in for another "cool" day. Not much going on, just my usual.

 

Brenda, thanks for your thoughts on my computer issues and my doctor appointment. I'm going to remain positive and say I'll handle the pain alright. If not, we can always increase the medicine in my pain pump.

 

Sandra, thanks for love, serenity, and extra healing energy. Right back at ya.

 

Val, I'm so sorry about your daughter. Hope she isn't too badly injured. That sucks about her car. So, now the other woman has to pay, correct? To fix the car and any doctor or hospital visits your daughter has.

 

Pat, miss you.

 

Take care everyone and have a fantastic day.

Hugs to all!

Just talked to my daughter finally - wish I could have been there - she is OK = the car is driveable - she has a sprained spine which means she will have more problems than she already has with her shoulder - need to sleep - thanks everyone.   Yes Darla - the other lady should pay for everything but my daughter has to work.

Brenda, will try to send you some of our weather.

 

Val, my goodness, a sprained spine. Glad the car is driveable. Now comes the hassle of dealing with her insurance company to make her pay for everything. The last accident I was in {not th eone I broke my back in} was in 1994 and I got a personal injury attorney to take care of everything. I was able to work and go to the doctor for everything, get my truck fixed and I got a small settlement. If the lady and her insurance don't want to pay then I'd suggest going to a PI Atty.

 

Sandra and Pat, miss y'all. Hope to see y'all soon.

Hugs!
