October 28, 2011 – – Slept well last night—in my little bed. I just love snuggling up with great covers and a comfy mattress. Got up at 5:30, hit the floor running. Ate sausage, took my meds, got a shower, washed dark clothes and headed out the door to get Hallmark Man from the hospital so I could get a full day’s work in. About that time, my daughter called and said she was at the ER She said her chest is hurting real bad and is barking and coughing. She sat at the ER from 5:30 to 8:45 and they are still moving her down the list. She should have gone to a different ER. My son has a hole in his ear drum from rough-housing with a friend. You’d think he’d learn. I guess I did too much with my leg because the interior groin area started hurting real, real bad. Even with the cane, it didn’t help much. Took a hydrocodone and am sitting on ice pack before I have to go get Hallmark Man’s medicine.
My only concern is not being able to pay bills this payday. We have to eat. I don’t know what to do about the cable bill.
I made 28 hours this week. Woo…
I had to leave after an hour at work today to take Lindsay to the ER for bronchitis and upper respiratory infection, get her Rx filled and take her back home. Worked a whole 4 hours today.
Had to go to Kroger, Tractor Supply, Walgreens, Parkers and then Guyton Grill before I could settle in at home. I am ready for the weekend to relax! This whole roller coaster of trials and turbulence is wearing me out.
October 29, 2011 – – – I slept until 10 this morning, not all the way through the night. I did get up numerous times to pee, as usual. It was nice to stay in bed. I really didn’t want to get up at all. Hallmark Man was up, watching TV and it was cloudy and had rained outside. I couldn’t think of a reason to get up.
I decided to fast until dinner. I cleaned out the bird feeder and got them some fresh food and then went into the bedroom to do my Bible study video. I got two phone calls from my son. He and his wife are buying a house. They just got pre-approved for $80k and want me to go house hunting with them tomorrow. They are looking in Guyton so my Mom is coming, too. Being this close to my house, I’m sure she’ll want to see it so I figured I needed to clean up some.
I slowly started by trimming the Indian blankets, grabbing the mail, sweeping the porch, watering the plants, vacuuming, laundry, cleaning the bathroom, Louis’ room, cleaning the counters, bathing the dog, etc etc. It seemed like the more I did, the more needed to be done.
I finally sat down and ate spaghetti with Hallmark Man and cleaned the kitchen again. Finally sat down around 6:15 with an ice pack for my back. I’ve got two more loads going in the washer/dryer. Lord give me strength!
I am ready for bed. As I am glancing at the TV commercials, I can’t believe Christmas commercials are already on. Geez….
I got a text that we are supposed to have a frost in the morning so I had to run out and grab the hanging baskets and bring them in.
I am finding myself tired and not liking Facebook anymore. Tired of the games and blocking most of them. Not really being on it for a week while Hallmark Man was in the hospital broke me from it and I just realize there is more to life than playing on the computer.
