$50 Your Way Giveaway August 2022

$50 Giveaway August 2021

Here is my July update from on top of the mountain in Sandpoint Idaho.

The beginning of the month was a whirlwind.  The Husband has been sick, MS and Covid do NOT mix well.

Mid July I had originally planned to take visiting Granddaughter Alice home, stay a week and visit family and friends before returning home. Welllll, that was not meant to be. The Husband could not be left alone longer than a day, even that was tricky. So, Alice and I flew to sunny California, I dropped the kid at the curb, hugged the Son In Law. Hugged the kid and immediately got on a plane back to Idaho. That my friends made for a long day.

Less than a week after returning Mother Nature found Idaho and turned on the heat. NOOOO not when Alice was here so we could kayak! No, the month she was here we were wearing wool socks and sweaters! If I had been that Mega Millions Billionaire I would be installing air-conditioning ASAP. It’s hot up here! The heat is NOT good for MS. (Or cranky Non)

  4. It’s been a pretty nice day out there today, so far. It seems like rain blows up out of nowhere these days, so I’m not sure it’ll stay nice, lol.

  5. Emptied the car today so now I’m surrounded by plants once again. When I go for the pre-op I’ll bring back Idris, collect his stuff from the cattery, take flowers to Mum & Dad and collect some things from storage. I plan on bringing back 2 dehumidifiers, mop & bucket, tool box, axe, vacuum cleaner and some gardening things so I can get to work emptying & cleaning the house.

  6. Glorious Sunday – weather is perfect and drying out thank goodness…Decided to go shopping online today – my wardrobe needs quite a bit of help right now….

  7. It’s been a sort of restless day. I just have no idea what I want to do but I want to do something…lol. I have no idea what I want to eat but I want to eat something. That kind of day.

  8. Beautiful day almost 80 the wind feels and smells so good. Did a little crafting today started a project for great niece and painted part of it for her.

  9. My day is going pretty good so far. I have a little bit of a stomach ache but hope that will pass soon. Hope you have a great day.

  10. Filled the tank with petrol – dear God you could feed a family for a week on what it cost! I’ll check the oil, coolant etc. when it cools down a bit. I’ve got to leave here at 5am on Wed. so I’ll practise going to bed & getting up early from now to then.

  11. Family is funny – love them all …everyone is either much older than me or much younger ( first cousins) enjoyed the calls….

  12. just after midnight here so it’s the 6th. the temperature is staying quite high so it’s hard to sleep. thanks

  13. Lately it seems to rain at some point every day. But at least we don’t have the floods they are having in the eastern part of the state.

  14. The temp is down rained off and on all day. Nice breeze in my windows and the air smells so good. And I think I am feeling better

  15. I just got home from doing BIG grocery shopping and I am worn out! It just wears me out bagging everything putting in in the car, driving all the way home and then unloading it all and schlepping it into the house and then putting it all away. I am thankful that I am able to get groceries just needed to whine a little thanks for listening. Now off to wine a little lol!

  16. Brought most of my plants up to my room from the car. I plan on bring my vacuum cleaner, stepladder & tools etc. out of storage on the day I have my pre-op assessment.

  17. Having a good day! Packing for a quick weekend trip to the west Michigan lakeshore to visit with my mom!

  18. A definite inside day again today – plan on starting to go through the library and decide which books can be sold after I buy them as e-books. trying to find a shipping company here that sells boxes.. they all want to pack for you… not that far along and even so I always do my own packing..LOL

  19. Went back to Lexington today for another doctor’s visit-different doctor. Trying to figure out the issues still bothering me from the sepsis days. She agrees that most of them seem to have neurological problems behind them–sepsis attacked my nervous system at some point, obviously. Sepsis is an equal opportunity attacker, I guess. It attacked everything at some point, inside and out. I have numbness in various parts of my body: feet, right leg, lower back, left lower abdomen. It stands to reason that if those areas are numb, then inside has numb areas too that aren’t working like they should. The upshot is that I will have some test done on the 23rd that actually measures how your various nerves are firing, lol. I had never heard of it. EMG/Nerve Conduction Study is what it’s called. Hopefully it can help. She said in some cases you can get nerves to work again–it just depends on what happened to them and how bad the damage is. At least I’ll know.

      1. I’ll think about you while they are trying to zap me with electrodes or whatever they do, lol!!

  20. Feeling better one more day of pills to go!! Did a little shopping today found a few item at a discount store for great niece for Christmas. She loves crafting and they had some great back to school stuff .

  21. Delayed leaving for the shoppes until 9am but it really didn’t matter – at half 6 or 9 the rain was torrential…I did get all my errands done and the house is once again stocked to the brim…the next tropical wave is due tonight into Saturday!

  22. My day is going pretty good just fighting with my computer a little bit today. Also getting ready for the 100 degree heat to get here again.

  23. Idris will be cremated and I’ll collect his ashes when I go for the pre-op assessment. He’ll get to the new house after all. Went to check the house again on Tuesday & met a lady who lives just down the road. She showed me how to re-connect the water. It’s just a stopcock out on the road. That’ll save me having to wait for the water company to come out and save me money. Her husband switched the water off as the owner was afraid of a leak when she went to hospital.

  24. Well, my trip to the orthopedist in Lexington took forever. The actual doctor visit didn’t take too long, but the bus ride back, with about 4 drop offs and pickups, with houses way far out of the way, took almost 3 hours!! I got on that bus at about 4:30 and got home at 7:30. Anyway, eventually, the ankle will have to be fused, but not yet.

  25. Well the heat is back was around 90 down to 88 at this moment. Still not feeling great so just hanging out and doing nothing. Read a little sleep a little………… played on the computer a little

  26. it didn’t seem like a lot was done today but writing it down and looking at the list really tells the tale. thanks

  27. It’s been just honestly miserable here. I’m tired of the same lies and disrespectful crazy out of my so called boyfriend. Time to find a real man

  28. Idris The Wonder Cat is no more. They operated this morning & found a tumour in his gut that had spread to his lymph glands. I let him go.

    1. Sorry for you lost! Its a hard thing for you as a person to do BUT a blessing for our little one. Memories will help and make you smile.

    2. Oh, no. That breaks my heart. I hate that you didn’t get to spend these weeks with him. I am glad that he isn’t going to spend a long time in pain, suffering, though. As much as it must have hurt to let him go, it was right. But, I am sorry, Kate. I sound all over the place, but I didn’t expect this. I really thought he was probably just missing you.

  29. Nothing new here – another tropical wave # 25 on the way and right now we are in the midst of a heavy rain from the inter tropical convergence zone – spoke to my surveyor/lawyer and the decision about the sub-division will be done in 2 months time…

  30. WOOT,WOOT!!!! Thanks Connie for your picking bot picking ME for the $50 for July.
    Good way to start my day. Then a good swim with my friend.
    Except just now Twitter put me in jail for 3 days and I have NO idea why.

  31. The cat’s back at the vet. He has feline AIDS and an obstruction in his gut. More tests tomorrow. Posted the contracts back to solicitor for forwarding to the vendor.

    1. Well, I missed this yesterday because of my Lexington trip–which took forever. I’m so sorry, Kate.

  32. My day is going pretty good so far. I just made a huge potato salad and cooked up some hamburger for dinner later this evening. I like to cook it all in the morning so all we have to do is heat it up later on when it is super hot out so we don’t heat up the kitchen. I am so over summer come on fall.

  33. Starting to feel a little better pass ready to be over this cold. Going back into the 90’s by thursday I liked this cooler weather.

  34. My day is at least going better than yesterday. Our dog has been sick, but seems to be better today.

  35. Today is supposed to be a hot one but I will be working in air conditioning all day. I got a good night of sleep so I feel awake today!

  36. Well, my brother came by and turns out he had to get up and go pick up my niece last night about midnight in Lexington (about 30 minutes from here.) She had been out with her boyfriend and on their way back, she was hit by a drunk driver. My niece had the green light and when she started to pull into the intersection, the drunk driver (a woman) ran a red light and hit the front end of my niece’s car. My brother said he got there pretty fast and the police were still trying to get the drunk lady into the police car–she was fighting them and spitting on them (they eventually had to put one of those spit-guard things over her face. (sort of a hood type thing)–Then the drunk woman’s boyfriend showed up, equally drunk, and started fighting with the cops and they had to wrestle him to the ground and arrest him. Scary thing is if she had hit my niece’s car just about 3 or 4 feet farther down the side, she would have literally T-boned the car and heaven knows how bad it might have been. As it is, the car is still in Lexington because it’s not drivable. But everybody is okay.

  37. Visit to the PT who was pleased with how my new hip is working out. I’ve been doing all the exercises he prescribed for me. Then picked up groceries.

  38. Made pancakes for breakfast, got the house vacuumed, did 3 loads of laundry and my son came over for dinner. It was a very productive day.

  39. Had dr appointment this morning at 7:45 am after waiting awhile the nurse came back and ask WHY I had a appointment with Dr??? I said the front desk set it up I wonder but they should know what they were doing. So they check with the correct dept and managed to get me in I might have a little wait………….. I finally got done with 2 antibiotics prescriptions for my cold. Got back in my car at 10:15

  40. My day is going pretty good just got home from doing a little running around town. I was pretty quiet in town so that was nice now I am resting my bones.
