Good evening everyone. It has been a very busy day here. I was done with work early. I came home and prepped the boat for fishing tomorrow. I also had to unplug part of the plumbing. It was for the bathroom sink and tub. Then I had to cut the grass before driving the youngest to the next town to meet up with mom. It's time to relax. I am done.
I do hope you all have a great weekend. Take care and pace.
Good evening everyone. Yesterday at work I found out I will start the new position next week. I feel like it's just in time. I am beat. Yesterday's work kicked my butt, the aftermath kicked my butt today. At least the weekend is in sight now.
My DW took losing our dog pretty hard, worse than me. I would be alright with not getting another one at this point but she has been on the hunt. It turns out that Bassets are hard to find near us from a reputable breeder. Our female was from the shelter, the male was family raised. Anyhow, she is going in two weeks to pick up a pup from Nebraska. It's a 10hr drive from here.
Mimi, Sorry you had a funeral to go to today.
Mel, I hope you can find a good neuro for your daughter. Working with insurance is a pain.
Good morning Nancy, thanks for the hugs. He was a dear friend, nothing but love. When we got him he was 1 1/2, family raised and expertly trained. The DW is looking at pups, I don't know if I want another just yet. I would go to the shelters first.
It rained hard here last night as well. I woke at 2:30 to it. We have been very dry here until recently. It's a good thing despite being an inconvenience.
Nancy, I am glad you can avoid the drama. It makes for a long day when you get tied up in that. My maintenance department is full of it. Some feed on that negativity. I avoid it at all costs. Leaving the shop will be good that way.
It will be my usual restful Sunday here. We have some housework to do but things should be mellow. Thanks for all the thoughts everyone, much appreciated!
Good afternoon everyone. It was a busy week here so I did not post much either. I have missed it. Yesterday I had to put my male basset down. He was suffering and they found a large tumor causing internal bleeding. He was so amazing, it was a very hard day.
Today was dry enough to go outside so I have been out most of the day. I got several things done that were waiting on fair weather. I managed to get the Jeep in shape for fishing, hoping to go next weekend.
Things are good overall, pain is low today. Hopefully I didn't cross the line, easy to do. I hope you all have a wonderful evening. Take care and pace.
Good afternoon everyone. It's quite cold here in northern MN. We had bought hanging pots for the front porch that were very pretty. Well, it got down to 32 here in town and they are now completely dead, no saving them. I guess we jumped the gun on that one. It claims to be 54 right now but it feels like 45 to me.
Fatigue has taken root this week. It has been relentless. I am still ramping up a new medication so it could be related to that. I have to give it enough time to see if it can help. I have been pretty beat up. The good new is that I will be starting my new position by next week or the following week.
My animals bring me joy no matter how I feel. Maybe that's why we have 4 cats and two hounds.
I have to run for now. I hope you all have a good evening. Take care and pace!
Good morning Nancy. Good lord, you had quite a day. I haven't had one like that in quite some time thankfully. I am sure I m overdo.
Meds are high in general, this one in particular suddenly quadrupled, it didn't just go up a bit. The good pharmacist offered to not run it through insurance so I was able to get it for just over $50 this time. It is an old, generic, med so I don't get it.
It should be a good restful day here. I need it after yesterday. We have a few things to fetch in the next town but nothing too strenuous on the list. Today is about the pace.
Good evening everyone. Congratulations to Cece and the new member of the family. I'm happy for you!
I did figure some things out on my med. I tried going through Express Scripts. It would only save me a few dollars. They quoted me $195 a month. It is an online source where you get three months at a time. It is usually the cheapest. My RH got back to me as well. She said to make sure it's generic, it is. Also that I could take it every other day for now and see if in two months it can be found cheaper. In that time if my symptoms do not get worse I may be ok without it. That was a potential course after I adjust to my newly added arthritis med anyhow. There isn't much else I can do about it except pay it.
I did way too much today. I took it off to heal from the extra hard work week. I crashed at 2 and took a quick nap. I am paying for it now, but I have a lot less to do the rest of the weekend.
Tomorrow should be pretty quiet and relaxing. We have a few easy errands to run. It is fishing opener here but I won't be able to go yet. The Jeep pulls the boat and it needs parts. I was able to get them ordered today so soon I will be out there.
Mel, thanks again for getting things going here. I hope your DD is ok.
Linda R, tooth pain is no fun at all, such a distraction. I hope you get that or sorted out Monday.
Lou, I should have Googled it, I thought of it but never did. Thanks!
