Got up feeling good Thursday morning.  Hubby was a little frenetic because the dude was coming to check the air-conditioning - just the usual check-up - and Hubby had lots of stuff to do before the guy came in mid-morning (so I was told the ay before).  I stepped up and cleaned a quart of strawberries and cut them into tiny pieces just the way he likes them, put a little sugar on and stuck them in the fridge.  For some reason, he thought there was no room for them in there, but there was LOTS of room.  Then I did the dishes and two loads of laundry.  Well, 2 1/2 loads - there was still a load in the dryer from the last laundry incursion.


That was it for me - I'm just not as strong as I once was.  Then I wrote about twenty pages on the latest book.

    Pace yourself and don’t over do it.

    it’s been a little frenetic around here lately too. hub trying to plant garden. no help. don’t know why he has to do that. by the time he buys plants and seed, we could go gro store just as cheap. since I’m not able to help much, I think he’s po’ed! oh hell he’ll get over it when he gets hungry. Ha!
    spinal stenosis is keeping me from doing anything productive. hope to get help with it soon. went to a nurse practitioner last week. gave me some hope. however he can’t get my insurance to OK an MRI!! I assume it’s because he’s not a real doc. i will see… meanwhile i have an appt with a gasternolists this monday. my gyn found occult blood in colon! real shit happens. no docs in my little town worth 2 cents. nashville the closest, an hour away in heavy traffic. we too old for that. have nobody to drive for us. getting old is for the birds!!!! all i can say is stay strong and keep your powder dry.

      It’s really hard to pace myself when I rarely feel good. When I do, I just want to try to do everything at once! Soon enough, everything stiffens up and I’m stuck in my recliner again.

    You do seem to be a very busy lady. I am so weak and tired all the time, I don’t do much. I plan to change all that and help Darlene with the chores around the house, since I am not working.

    Darlene is looking for a job. I hope I can find out what is wrong with me and get better. I want to get a job at Dollar Tree. Hubby-Craig wants me to not work and enjoy my life. but I just love having the bank deposit into your checking account with money, you have made yourself. I am hoping the shots will make my knees better and I can work without being in dreadful pain and agony, as I am now. Especially since they have not filled my Naproxen yet.
