Good afternoon everyone. Not much new here either. It is still "Kansas like" in MN lol. Work was ok, just a little frustrating, but it is Friday.
I called my mom today, she sounds rough but never admits it. I want to stop in but I am fending off a virus right now. I usually don't get sick, just a few symptoms of something coming on that passes. I hope that is the case.
I hope you all have a good evening. Take care everyone.
Good evening everyone. It was fair today, warmer for late December here. It is going to be warmer than normal at least through the holiday. It is welcomed. I miss the sun though. Like Mel, we have not seen it in some time.
Work was not too bad today. I feel like I normally do for the most part. Things could be worse. As soon as I stopped taking my recently increased Naproxen, my rash lessened and seems to be going away.
It is calm and quiet here this evening. I hope it's the same for you all. Take care everyone.
Good evening everyone. I woke to snow instead of the rain we had the last few days. Everything was iced up good. The roads were terrible. I left to go to the dentist at 9 I next town. Just away from work a woman slid off a corner backwards in the ditch. I drove her car out for her. It was almost impossible to stand on the road.
I ended up late for my appt. by two minutes...and early by one day! This ruined the rest of the day for me. I white knuckled it down there to find out I screwed up the days. Back to work I went. I cancelled the one for tomorrow. I am not missing more work and explaining all of that. It can be done in a few months.
I still have an ugly rash around my armpits. It does not itch. My body does not like something that is going on. It could be the Naproxen so I did not take it this afternoon. It looks bad but does not bother me at all. One more thing to deal with.
After work I brought the DW to the doc She was concerned about whatever she caught form the kids she works with. I was certain it was the flu. People don't seem to get what the flu is. The doc confirmed it and sent her home to rest. We all had the flu shot this year but it only covers the most likely strains, not all of them.
I am alright, the elbow is better and I feel pretty good. Christmas should be nice for us with no travel to do, everything is local.
I hope you all have a wonderful evening. Take care everyone.
Good evening everyone. It's still above freezing here and it rained all day. This had to be ruining the good ice we had on the lakes for fishing. I saw pictures of cars already falling through. Some people are crazy. Even if it was cold it is too early for driving on it. It will cool off tonight and hopefully we will get enough snow to have things white for Christmas. It is very rare that it isn't here, but right now the grass is still partly green.
I did not move an inch in my sleep. I woke in the same position, stiff as can be, 7hrs later. My back was almost bad enough to call in. I felt terrible most of the day but I did get a little better later on. I was lucky it was a light day. The elbow is shrinking back to normal too.
Once home I did the elliptical minus the right arm motion for a little bit. I hit the shower and found what looked like a rash on the front of both shoulders. There was no itching or anything like that so I have no idea where that came from. It's always something isn't it?
Mimi, I have been the dog sitter many times as well. Although it can be a hassle, it always made me smile when the dogs were happy to see me.
Nancy, I am the designated cart pusher when we shop. I insist.
Linda, what do they inject into your knee? I am curious.
Laura, time marches on indeed. Wouldn't it be nice if it had a little consideration?
Lou, maybe a little table top fake tree?
Mel, I hope you feel better.
To all, have a great day tomorrow, sleep well and take care.
Good morning everyone. It's so foggy here that I can't see further than across the street. The 40 degrees is nice, but not with this dreadful humidity. I yearn for the sun.
We finished most of our shopping yesterday and it was a little nuts everywhere we had to go. This always stresses me out, but the DW was there holding my hand, always helps calm me.
Although it's no surprise, we found her THE ring. She has been on the hunt for a pretty yet simple wedding band to wear. Now that we are almost at 20 years, both of our rings are not worn, mine is way too small for my knuckle, hers needs repair. It is an affordable, antique looking white gold. She then insisted I look for one as well, and found an affordable similar ring, but with blue diamonds across the middle. It did not hurt that we had a great salesperson who dropped the price a lot below the sale price, ending up at a good spot we could handle.
The weather is not kind to me today. I will take it easy as we all should on Sunday. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Take care everyone.
Good morning Mimi, Nancy, and all who follow. Last night was our company party as well. it was nice to have one again. We haven't in at least 5 years. They had put the company in survival mode for a long time. We always make a profit in our division, but we had to use that to keep the rest of the company going. Things are good again and it shows. Our small factory made 45 million this year. It's hard to fathom.
I had my massage after waiting two months. OMG do I feel better. I was a wreck for the last two weeks and it really helped alleviate many of my issues. They are still there but turned way down. It is one of my best tools if I go in every 4-5 weeks.
When I am down, my animals always seem to know and come to me to cuddle and cheer me up. I have both of my hounds with me this morning.
We will finish our shopping today or tomorrow. I have to do maintenance on the Jeep and clean it out while it is warm today. We will see what the day brings.
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Take care everyone.
Good afternoon everyone. It's cool dreary day here but a warm up is on the way and welcomed. I will be a mild week here compared to the norm.
The doc looked at my elbow and sent me back to work. It still looks ridiculous. It swelled up and got sore from the days work a bit. Hopefully it will go away and I won't have to have surgery to remove what's left of the bursa. I still have about 6 days of antibiotics. I can't wait for that to be over.
I called my mom yesterday to see if she was up for a visit. No dice, I think she is avoiding us because I think she still smokes. Her Husband is there until Saturday, then back to work he goes and my random visits begin. She would benefit from hospice help as well. Otherwise she will be right back in fighting for her life again. I think she is out of chances.
I already received my Christmas present. I went from an I-phone4 to a 6. It's quite the little device. I don't talk on it much or even use the data, but I use several apps that are handy. I take a lot of pictures with it as well.
Mimi, I hope you managed to get a nap in after 2:30.
Lou, I hope you can shake the anxiety. I know that can't be fun at all.
Mel, glad you got your walk in. I haven't done enough of that this year.
To all, have a great rest-of-the day. Take care everyone.
