Good middle of the week MiMI and to all that follow. I do hope that today will be a good one for everyone and that fibro issues or pain will not be a part of your day.
Hello to Cory!, who is in my neck of the woods! The weather may not be the best though. I do hope that it is warm and sunny there in downtown Nashville. Am so glad you got out and got in some sightseeing there. Downtown is a lot of fun.. music, good food and friendly people. Enjoy!
It's overcast and rainy here this a.m. and may be so the rest of the day. I hope it's better weather up in Nashville. 55 miles up north of me. Along with overcast and rainy it's muggy as well and cooler than it's been. Around 80 I think.. but a nice change from yesterday's hot all day and into the evening.
Nothing much to post about. Life is slower than molasses here. I finished writing the Eulogy for my ex SIL and friend of 40 years. She asked me three weeks ago to write it, again, and after a very close call with her heart last week I sat down and composed it. I made corrections to it yesterday and put it away in DH's dresser drawer. Out of sight, out of mind. She hasn't asked if I had written it and I hope that she doesn't as she wants to read it when I'm done. I guess I could lie and say I hadn't done it yet, but would feel awful doing that. BUT would feel even worse if I had to send it to her and she read my final thoughts about her and the life we shared as BFF's. Some things I believe are better left alone.
Okay since I have nothing newsworthy to post about I'll close here by saying hello to all...MiMi, Nancy, Lou, cece, Lisa, Jeanne, Mel and Sarah. Wishing you all a wonderful day.
Good Sunday one and all.. I do hope you have some plans for your Sunday and that you will be able to be out and enjoy the day without fibro issues or pain.
It's a stay indoors at all costs kind of day here. Wished I could but I do have errands that I need to run. The Heat Index is climbing into the 100's and not a breath of air to move the heat along. UGH... but I'm not complaining.
DH tried to do some yard work yesterday in late afternoon. He managed to get some of the bushes in the back yard trimmed back and shaped. We did the watering.. no restrictions here. Today in the late afternoon we'll try again and that way we can get the yardwork done piecemeal.
Nothing much to post about.
MiMI, sorry you have a sore spot on your head.. and thank you so much for addressing rashes. I do think a lot of us here get them and have no earthly idea as to why. I think that speaks for a lot of symptoms we get because of the fibro. Odd happenstance that your DD and GD were at the same theather, same time.. and so good that she got to see your DD for a bit of time. She knows she has family and that they love her. I too hope the days fly by so she's with you all again.
Nancy, so very sorry you've had a fibro flare to deal with. Really NOT FAIR to get one during the summer when being out of doors enjoying the warmth is what those of us with fibro long for during the cold winter. I am sending feel well wishes along to you for a speedy recovery from it. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR THAT GEM OF A POST YESTERDAY! I sure wish I'd have had that advice to handle my life while my MIL was in a care facility. My SIL's were terrible, my MIL upset and unhappy most days and I hated the people who looked after her. Your advice would have just fit me to a tee.
Cory, I hope your trip back into Nashville is a pleasant one. I do hope that you get a chance to see a bit of the city.. there is so much to see and enjoy. And if it is possible, and I am sure you will be much too busy, to fit a quick visit with Rudy and me in, well I hope that happens.
Lou, I hope your week was a good one.. I know you were busy..
To those here who are dealing with fibro issues or pain I am sending <<< air hugs >>> and wishes that you feel well quickly.
Hellos to Mel, Lisa and Jeanne.. hope you're having a wonderful weekend...
cece, sorry about the downpours there.. but yes the rain was needed. I hear there were flood watches in Northridge, my old hang out. And when it floods there, OMG it floods there.
I am sorry that you had to move mattresses in the rain, NO fun I am sure!
Glad your dad and mom are doing well... and Nancy's idea was a jem!
Glad that the visit with your sisters is going okay. I too had to watch as my family pawed through my father's life time collection of clothes, jewelry, art and the like. I too said Take What You Want.. it was the person who mattered to me. I look back now and you know I feel sorry for them.
I hope you and Ron get to relaxed some today. Gentle hug dear friend.. LindaView Thread
Cory, let me know where in Nashville you'll be and Rudy and I will try to meet up with you, even if it's for a second.
I'll check here Monday and Tuesday to see where you are and if you can squeeze seeing me and Rudy.
The weather here will not be like home, sadly, in the 90's here ( and possibly strong thunderstorms ) on Tuesday with a 50% chance of rain, making it 106 on the heat index. Whenever you can stay indoors near an AC. SE summers are humid and muggy.
Good Friday one and all. Hello MiMi and hello to all those that will post after I have. Gosh this week went zooming by me. I hope it's been a good week for each of you. A week where fibro issues or pain haven't been an issue for you. I know Nancy has been dealing with a bad flare sending her feel well hugs and love... <<HUGS >>
It's sunny and hot here. Going back up to the mid 90's.. heat index near 106 they say. Hot and hotter still. This will be our weather pattern for the next 5 or 6 weeks and when we say hot in the SE we mean muggy and damp heat. DH and I were out in the heat most of yesterday and it was so hot my makeup was melting off my face. I thought to myself " Am I in Texas?" it was that kind of hot. And it's gonna be that kind of hot for the next week as well. And again, I just love posting about how warm it is here..
I think DH is finally done with adding things to the yard(s) for the little hummingbirds. He brought home 8 hanging plants Wednesday, that were distressed and reduced in price, that the little birds like and placed them around the yard. He loves those little birds. Example: the last thing he did last night before heading to the bedroom was to take down, clean and refile their feeders. And all this TLC is paying off.. we have more than a few little ' zoomers ' here. You can look out our front windows at any one given time and you'll see them at their feeders or zooming by.. and ditto in the back yard, but more so. As they say in the south the boy is in his glories.
I went in for my bi yearly dental cleaning Tuesday and the dentist told me I couldn't put off getting the last 2 cavities taken care of any longer. They were under two very old crowns I had. So I went in Wednesday after my bi yearly visit to my lung dr to do that. And OMG am I sorry I did. He drilled and pushed and pulled at my upper jaw line to the point of I could feel it even with the meds he gave me for pain. My jaw joints felt like I'd been hit with a hammer when the novocain wore off. I took the strongest pain med I had afterwards and fell a sleep. Woke up yesterday still feeling pain where I got the shots and the dental work. No wonder no likes to visit the dentist... but I'm done for awhile. I will need to get a root canal in January because one tooth he worked on Wednesday needs more than he could do. UGH
Not much to post about. It's hard to believe looking at the calendar that it's mid year already. School's here in the SE, as MiMi mentioned, will begin to fill up with children in about 2 weeks. Stores already have 3 or 4 ilses filled with all the things children will need for the school year. School Tax Free Weekend is August 3rd.
I feel sorry for the little ones as it will be very hot the next 5 weeks and they will be stuck in school. The public pools will close as well and the parks will shorten their hours. Seems a bit too early to pull the rug up from under summer. I mean really it's only mid July.
cece, I'm sorry that you had that unfortunate visit with your father. He's mad that he's not home. He's mad that things aren't as they should be. He doesn't know any other way to express it and he's aiming that anger towards the first person who walks in the door.. sadly it was you. Just remember it's not really your dad, who loves you so very much, talking. As for your sisters and this weekend I hope it is not stressful or upsetting for you. I hope that they realize that you have done everything you possibly could, the best for your parents, and they who have done nothing, and I mean nothing but talk platitudes..should say nothing. I hope that they see how much you have done for their mother and father and appreciate it. I hope this for you so much.
I guess since I have so little to post about I should close this here with Hellos to cece, Nancy, Cory, Lou, Lisa, Jeanne and Mel and anyone else that my feeble old mind may have forgotten.
Good Tuesday one and all... I hope your today is fibro issue and pain free and that there's sunshine where you are today.
Here it's overcast, muggy and warm. It will be in the mid 90's again with some chances for T-Storms later in the late evening. Such is the weather here in midsummer.
DH and I did little yesterday after he got home. A few chores such as putting in new water lines to the front porch, we used to have them there, with a faucet and hose so I can water in the morning or late afternoon.
DH and I have appts at the dentist today to get our bi yearly checkups. I'm first so when I'm done I'm heading out to have a late afternoon meal with my BFF. She and I try to get together to catch up on things twice a month but it's getting harder and harder to do since. She let her faculty position at the university go and took on a better paying job job with our local school district. Unlike the flexible hours teaching she is now stuck in a 9 -5 job and we're finding it's harder and to get together during the day.
Not much to post about. Life is in slow lane for me. I know so many of you have busy lives but mine is just creeping along.
DH is going to take me and GD to try a new Hawaiian restaurant Thursday. It's opening up today so DH is going to swing by there so he can enter the drawing for one of 100 Mariota Titian jerseys that are being given away as an opening gimmick. ( cece, have you gone to the L&L Hawaiian Grill there in SD? The newest one is the one that has just opened up here near where Rudy works. And of course being it from Cali we're gonna try it out. It's supposed to be really, really good and I do miss food chains from Cali. Anyway, just thought maybe you had been able to get to one and had some thoughts on the food. )
cece, also, I hope that things have gotten better with your dad's hospice facility. I hope that he is better and that they are coming in to care for him more times an hour. I also hope that the medications are working and that his temperature is back to normal and that any infection he had is gone now. I also hope that they are watching to make sure he doesn't fall again!
Lou,happy cleaning week to you! I know that you will find many things to move out and maybe a few surprises to keep. I find that happens while I'm cleaning. I have even found a few treasured things that I had long forgotten about and have been glad that I ran across them. My question to self always is: How did I lose this? LOL
As I said life is slow here.. will close this here with Hellos to: Nancy, Cory, Mel, Lisa and Jeanne.
Have a great day everyone.. Gentle hugs my friends, Linda RView Thread
