Anyway, I had a ride over to the Civic Center but had to walk home because, I had taken a pain pill and also applied partion of the Lidocaine patch to my neck. It's at 5%. Thank goodness I walked - it help clear out the fog.
But doing both was really dumb. ROFLOL! I babbled during the entire time. SHeesh! Talk about feeling like a fool. So from now on I will NOT take my pain pill before playing. A small patch of Linocaine will be enough. Then after I walk home I can take the pill.
I posted the kids got home. Talked to them but not seen them. Their truck needed a new battery as they were gone over the serious freeze of 27 degrees. Also DDIL van is not doing well so there is a mechanic that wants to buy it. The kids will have to buy another car once they sell her old one.
I am doing ok walking. Charlie is nt having physical problems like he was. HURRAH!
He is jumping on to my bed but when I ask him to he won't. Not sure what that is about. Though he is really behaving great outside and inside.
I have to admit that I am still have some dizziness - I thnk I need new glasses. But that has to wait till after the taxes are paid. So far I have not been able to get any info on the amount.I have a few years of credit that will be applied. I was told I will get the info by the 31st. The taxes have to be paid by then. WHAT????
So far the weather has been getting warmerin the am. We have climbed from the low 30s into mid 30, with temps higher from 40 to 60 every few days.
I think I mentioned that A finally came back from CA and it turned out his well pipes broke. Which is what poured the water into the cedar area above the retaining wall which was why the water ran from out of the base of the wall into my driveway.
My driveway was flooded from the end of my porch along the yard and into the back. Walk about mud. It never got warm enough to dry out.
I have discovered that my utility room wall plugs blew out. I will have to have them replaced and hopfully working so I can still use my washer. Unless my washer also died.
I want Boy to move all the wood - supposedly to be used to fix the porch and steps - past their trailer. I have some ideas on how to fix my porch myself. Slowly a bit at a time. I still need to roof fixed first.
I will insist that he moved the trailer to its resting spot.
I planon calling and seeing if I can get my fence fixed so it has two panels that turn to the house instead to along the road. Also I hope to fix the rest of the fence so that the area along the road does get fixed. Keeping Charlie safe comes first.
There are other projects that are need to be done. All these things but the fence have cropped up over the last year and a half.
Being ill has meant I have had trouble taking care of normal business.
I think I posted that I have Acute Arthritis of my neck bones. Which is so painful. But finally during the 4th trip to the ER a Dr knew what he was doing ans had my neck cat scanned and wa la... he found the problem. Thank goodness for I am not normal yet but am so much better. Sleeping is possible. The pain I had is mostly gone. I am so glad nt to be in agony anymore. THat was 2 full years of horrible pain.
My Dr has put me on a new Diabetic test system. Its impossible to understand the instructions so I have to call the pharmacy to have some one wak me through the steps. It's not a simple procedure. And the instructions are in such tiny print I can hardly read them.
So since the end of December when I had the last ER visit I am improving. I do walk to the mail mostly twice a day. Plus I am in the process of changing my meals to 5 or 6 a day. 2 or 3 smaller and the rest normal size. What I am eating is chaning as well. I am gaining weight and my muscles are bulking up. YEAH!
I have also started using Eucerin for very dry skin. Which I have had all my life. Except during the summer in TX & MN. Lots of humidity then.
I didn't think it would be as quick to repair my skin as it has.
I also cut my bangs. It's been a while but necessary. I haven't been able to pay as much attention to myself these past two years. I focused mostly on DD - who has been having problems - and the critters. Charlie needing to walk and playball has been a life saver for me.
Well, everyone is well here. Chance still likes me to rub his head, eyelids, neck and beck. He was off that for a long time.
Ok I have to go fix lunch for myself. Breakfast was a sandwich of peanut butter and fried spam on multi grain toast. & a slice of fresh pineapple. Plus 1 cup of water 6 times a day.
I have been having salads for lunch lots of veggies also soups and sandwiches. Dinner will be chicken breasts, yams and veggie of some kind.
I can now have a small or half a slice of a small slice of cheese cake. Works great satisying my sweet tooth. Also crached and cream cheese work for a snack.
As you can see lots of changes - thank goodness - but need more good ones. The vacuum broke, water pipes under the house are a temp fix. Thank goodness my neighbors let me do a load of laundry one in a while. That is the biggest pain.
Fingers crossed taxes give me a break. Nothng is cheap right now. 6 eggs cost $3.60 I don't need more then that, whew!
Well time to fix that lunch I was talking about.
Have a good rest of the day.
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
