Thank goodness I am finally able to do house work. Slowly to be sure. I won't go into details but what a mess. At least I am better at stayingon top of cleaning except for vacuuming. I can't quite reach or clean under the beds. My neck restricts my ability to look under things. Oh well.
I am now paying DD's Fmother $ to pay for DD's summer camping. It's not outside but in a home with others like her for a 4 day weekend. She loves it.
Charlie is sotra better. His pad is healing better. At leat he is no longer limping or gimping like he was. He does some running but not for long and not as fast as he used to. I think once the pad is healed he willbe back to normal.
This month is a bad one $ wise. Hoepfully next month I have Charlies vet appointment, 2 extra bills from this month. Otherwise no problems.
April is when Humana allots me the $75 for A, M & J months for free medical items such as the neck patches and a huge amount of other items they offer. I really need a new scale for the bathroom.
Plus my Dr finally was able to have an RX for the 5% patches. It's covered by Humanna. I can have a full months worth of 5% patches which I cut in half so have a full days worth of Lidacane. I plan on using mostly at night when my neck is at its most painful.
Overall doing ok. But am having to change my eating habits. Especially the times of my meals. I ordered a good amount of groceries for me and the critters - apples and carrots for Charlie & Chance. I am working on drinking more water.
The neighbors leave today for their property out inthe middle of desert. They take a large tent and stay there at least 5 days. Maybe less since they both have injuries that have plaqued them all year.
Today I will receive my first delivery of 30 5% patches via the mail. Unfortunately with Covid over - I will be having to pick them up. A friend from my Wed Dominos is willing to take me to the Drug store to get next months package. Plus I also have another Checkup in June at my Drs.
But I get to babysit theneighbors 2 cats while they are on vacation. While I get to use their washer and dryer... I will be hanging most of my wash on my clothes line unless we have the rain which is predicted for this coming week. So I may hang the quilts, in the guest bathroom to dry.
I did buy groceries which included Apples, a Pineapple and a pack of Strawberries. Am adding more fruit yeah! Plus I have pork chops, gd beef, Chicken strips, bacon and pork sage sausage.
I go through days of not wanting salads. Not a good thing. Working on eating more greens. No ice cream at all and cutting back on Schwans food. Buying frozen veggies and other healthy items like the super thin crust and veggie pizza.
The weather is cloudy overnight and into the morning. Then sunny in afternoon. Still can't see any sky events - have missed them all. 8-(
Charlie and I walk around the yard - though he loves staring downhill looking for the dogs that used to live here. He is so quiet now. I still think he is showing sign of aging. Well, I know I am. So we are getting old at the same time.
No hummers yet. Of course they fly up from Mexico. It's early days yet for them. Lots of birds in the trees surrounding us.
The bird songs are interesting. Tweet, tweet isone. ANother is "Dirty, Dirty." Another is "Tweeter, Tweeter." Lots more of course.
The bad news is that the Black cat from across the street is now getting into my yard and under my house. ARRRGGHH! Plus the downhill neighbors big male cat is also geting under my house. I get along with their old female Calico cat. I've more or less been feeding her since I moved in 7 years ago.
Well, that's it for me. Kids are still determined to move in this year sometime. They will be living in the travel trailer. I am hoping I can get portions of my chain link fence fix to keep Charlie in my portion of the yard. They have 4 small dogs and will need to fence a yard for their dogs. I am not happy about it at all. Oh well.
Have a good weekend. We may have a touch of rain but nothing to fix the drought.. not one drop in March so far. I dread daylights savings... but what can we do. Hopefully Charlie and I wake up between 3 and 4 am. I make him wait till 5ish to have breakfas.
Sorry I keep adding to this post. Ta Ta...
