$50 Giveaway August 2021

$50 Your Way Giveaway August 2022

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)

    The weather was actually really nice today. It was pretty cool and there was a nice breeze. Of course, it’ll probably go nasty tomorrow, lol.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Last day of August & the junior children are back at school including our 3 Ukrainians. Managed to get up and do a bit & eat a bit.

  • l p

    the day is going well. can’t believe it’s the end of August (and summer?) already. hopefully some of the nice weather will stick around. thanks

  • Cathy French

    So far my day is going well. I have really been enjoying the lower August temps here in central OH. I cannot remember an August without sweltering heat and I love it

  • Michele+Soyer

    August is almost over – not a bad month all in all – got a good bit of planning and dreaming (lol) done…today is independence day here and this weekend in the states is Labour day so I plan on taking all this time off and relax….

  • Sarah L

    I was going to go to the pool this morning before my infusion this afternoon. Sigh. At least I got to the infusion in time.

  • Tamra Phelps

    I’m bored. I need to find something to do, lol. I’d like to take a cooking class, maybe. I wonder if anyon e has those around here–maybe I’ll look for an online one.

  • Shelly Peterson

    Today was an exciting day. my daughter and I got open the envelope revealing the gender of my other daughter’s baby. I am so excited for her to find out this weekend.

  • gloria patterson

    Our weather is up and down…………… today was a high of 70 with rain…….. Starting to clean out and get rid of a lot of old clothes. Favorites but it is pass time for them to go.

  • Michele+Soyer

    Back to reality today – no more beach day or lazing around with the pets.. there are weeds to be pulled and vines to be dug out – all I have in my head aside from the headphone music is Corfu!!!

  • gloria patterson

    energy level LOW!!1 I keep taking long naps and sleeping at least 6 hr at night. Our heat is back 94 today through tuesday.

  • Michele+Soyer

    It has been 5 years since my husband passed on – talk to him every day and hope that he is watching us move on with plans that are so different from what were his dreams – he would want me to be happy…miss him very much….

  • Sarah L

    Quiet day at home. The most excitement was a hit and run thunderstorm. Big crack of thunder, 2 minutes of rain and 2 minutest later – sunshine!

  • Kari

    I suddenly realised that the fall term starts in less than two weeks. Where did the summer go? There’s lots of work to do in preparation.

  • gloria patterson

    Sleep in 7 am this morning…………………. I know but I am usually up around 5:30 am Had a long nap and playing on the computer now

  • Tamra Phelps

    I don’t understand how a basically rural area can be so skimpy on things like Farmers’ Markets and fresh produce, lol. It’s hard to find around here. Maybe things just haven’t really kicked into gear since they had to shut down in 2020–it’s a pain the butt.

  • Shelly Peterson

    My son is house sitting at my brothers. I was planning to go swim in his pool but the weather isn’t very nice today.

  • heather

    We finally have some cloud cover here and that is making me so so happy. I was so tired of the baking 100 degree weather we have been having.

  • l p

    this day is going well. it’s little cooler and we’re getting some more much-needed rain. running between the raindrops should be an Olympic sport. thanks

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Golly, it’s Saturday! Where the hell has the week gone and how come a general anaesthetic can leave one such a crock? Maybe it’s my age catching up with me … feck that!

  • Tamra Phelps

    Went to the grocery today. That always leaves me tired out. Honestly, that place is so huge. Next time I think I’ll skip Walmart and hit a local little grocery, lol.

  • l p

    after a very loud and windy night of t-storms, it’s going to be a good day as the air clears and the sun comes out. thanks

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I have done bugger all except sleep today. Everyone has been so kind. You want soup? I make borscht just for you … make you strong!

  • Tamra Phelps

    Geeze. One of those days. I have dropped everything I have picked up, I keep having to fix things or try to put things straight. And the cable company says there is a problem with my equipment that could cause issues so they have to schedule an appointment to fix it. OK. I get to spend Monday waiting for the cable guy, lol.

  • gloria patterson

    Nice quiet day got a little of this and that done. Our temp is going back up for the next 4 or 5 days. It always goes up when the kids go back to school

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Sleep and more sleep, that’s about all I’ve done today. Kicking myself I didn’t bring back my aspidistra and other suffering houseplants from my sis’s place. How can 2 people with the same upbringing be so very different?

  • Michele+Soyer

    It is a glorious day outside after all the rain – and a new tropical wave is coming so I had better enjoy the sunshine this morning…

  • Aleksandra Nearing

    My day is going well so far, although I woke up too early! Going to get some work done, grocery shop, cook and enjoy an evening with my kiddo. We are volunteering to take care of the cats at the local Petsmart tonight.

  • gloria patterson

    Picked up my Farmers Market coupons any senior over 62 can receive them. There is $30 in coupons in the packet and they are good for the local farmers market.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I’m back! Minus my gallbladder & my belly feels like a Riverdance Troupe have been rehearsing for hours on it! Op went well, belly v.sore but avoided painkillers as had a 6 hour drive back. Left my sis’s place, collected poor Idris, headed for the new house & as I laid him to rest, there under the headge, beside the hole, was a little kitten, curled up asleep! More Twilight Zone theme music – honestly, the magic of the West of Ireland has me well & truely in it’s grasp. Back to the B&B to wish Happy Independence Day to our Ukrainian friends who clapped & cheered as they carried my stuff upstairs for me. What a day!

    • Michele+Soyer

      So glad that you are doing well – minus the pain. yeh! your trip to your new home was magical.. love it.. rest up!

  • Tamra Phelps

    The tape is still up around the parking area, and everybody here is having to walk up the street to get to their vehicles. The school kids just walked by my window, so the bus is dropping them off up the street far enough that I don’t even see it. The guys need to come take that tape down because there are disabled people here who can’t make a walk half-way up this street just to get out. Yeah, I’m whining today, lol.

  • Michele+Soyer

    First thing on the agenda today is laundry – by the time it is all done and hung up breakfast! I have to go through all the curtains amd drapes I have and decide what goes to good will….

  • Tamra Phelps

    The last few days have been ‘anything that can go wrong will go wrong.’ Today, just to cap it off, FTSB bus was not able to get to me because of the parking lot being roped off and repaved. So, I had to cancel my doctor’s appointment–rescheduled it, but can’t get in until October. I think I’ve gotten used to not really expecting anything to work out like I want.

  • gloria patterson

    two weeks ago today we made a trip to the bank……………… after 5 visits to the bank and many phone calls to the help line…… FINALLY

    Have on line bank set up so I can do my mother’s bills!!!

  • Sarah L

    I have 2 groups of swimming friends: the Tue/Thur group at Link and the Sunday one at Ridge. Today we all came together at Ridge since the Link is closed this week. Was fun.

  • l p

    I’m not sure how the day is going – went to an appointment and left more confused than when I went. hopefully time will help get things sorted out. thanks

  • heather

    My day is going pretty up and down so far today but I am trying to have a good day. Love coming to your blog always makes me smile.

  • Michele+Soyer

    Sitting here making a list of all the people I have to contact in the next few weeks…evaluation people, my lawyer, real estate lawyer, Greek lawyer.. customs.. shipping company.. the list goes on and on and I feel so excited! the last big move of my life…

  • Tamra Phelps

    Well, I was supposed to get a prescription for a UTI on Friday but they sent the wrong thing, so by Sunday I felt horrible–and decided to take a dose of an old prescription I never used because I had an allergic reaction to it. But I figured how much harm could it due, just using it for one day. Well, Sunday night I got my answer. I itch everywhere, lol. Eek!! And I didn’t get it straightened out today, and I have to go to Lexington tomorrow for that Nerve Conduction test. Hopefully, it’ll be straightened out by Wednesday.

  • gloria patterson

    Back to the bank AGAIN….. turns out the women that set account up did it wrong. And I had to deal with her to day.

  • l p

    it’s a beautiful day out there. sadly, the smoke from wildfires is coming along with breezes so the windows have to be closed. feeling bad for those who cannot get away from the fires/smoke. thanks

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I’ve got to check in at the hospital at 8 in the morning so heading to Wexford this evening. Trying to catch up on sleep.

  • Michele+Soyer

    We have 2 doors that are opening a little wonky and the hinges look off so called our handyman and hopefully he will come today – never a dull moment!

  • Tamra Phelps

    Feeling a little under the weather, so I slept in today–and slept, and slept, lol. I finally got up about 2:30. Geeze. Well, I was tired.

  • gloria patterson

    Lazy day…………………. long nap …………………………………. going to do laundry later. And just maybe bed early 🙂

  • Shelly Peterson

    I had my daughter’s bridal shower yesterday out in super hot weather. besides that, it went well. But a lot of work. I’m recovery from it today.

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good just got in the door from doing some grocery shopping. I am getting real real sick and tired of this 100 degree weather every single day.

  • Kk

    It’s a lovely day here today – just right. We are looking forward to a visit from dear friends whom we haven’t seen for a couple of years.

  • l p

    there’s a big race in the area so many of the roads around here are blocked off. up and out very early to get the errands run – accomplished. so now it’s tea time and watch the race from the window. thanks

  • Anonymous

    There’s a Vintage Car Rally here today. Lots of noise from way too early on a Sunday morning. It’s a day of rest folks, a day of rest! BE QUIET!!!

  • gloria patterson

    Had a busy busy day…………… great niece (5) spend the day with me and her grandma. We had breakfast at IHOP and then to the park. We luck out there were about 10 kids there so she had fun. Then we stopped and had ice cream. ETC ETC ETC tired ready for bed

  • Tamra Phelps

    I’ve been trying to find out if this area has any organizations that can provide info/resources for people in wheelchairs or otherwise disabled, but there seems to be nothing! I’ve only been around here for about 7 or 8 years, and I had never really had a reason to look before–but I’m fed up with the FTSB buses and the general lack of resources around here. I might need to start something, lol. The place I lived before, Somerset, wasn’t a big city or anything but we had a lot of organizations like that, community based resources. This town is very small, though, and doesn’t have a lot of that type of thing.

  • heather

    My day is going so so lots of drama going on and I hate me some drama. I am going to try real hard to have a great day anyway.

  • l p

    it’s a slow day – up later than usual this morning, lots of humidity, no breeze. moving slowly but will get the ‘chores’ done. thanks

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Just a day of deep cleaning my room as I won’t be able to vacuum etc. after surgery. Last night’s dream involved my paragliding off mountain tops.

  • Michele Soyer

    We had a stormy night with all the drama..thunder was loud – woke me up! Pouring rain right now so another coffee and relaxing with the pets…

  • Tamra Phelps

    Management sent a notice around today that on the 23rd they will be having the parking lot re-striped. OK. But of course that’s the day I have to go to the doctor for a test and FTSB bus will have to pick me up with everybody here forced to park on the street–so that should be interesting. Will I have to roll halfway up the street just to get to the bus, lol.

  • gloria patterson

    Two trips to comcast and one phone call to phone company ………. another problem solved for my mother

    Still having problems with the banking……………………………..

    Tired need a day of lots of naps

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Woke up early to find we’d no water! Texted landlady & her hubby (a builder) came over. It took him 10 hours but we now have hot & cold running water again! The landlady rang the nearest municipal swimming pool to see if they could help re. showers. They organised a bus, collected our 20 Ukrainian refugees & gave them all a free day at the pool, sauna, gym etc. plus lunch!

  • Shelly Peterson

    I didn’t sleep well last night. Today is hot again and I am tired of the heat. I had errands to run to get things for my daughter’s bridal shower this weekend.

  • Tamra Phelps

    I swear every time I open the door a fly flies in! And then it spends the next few hours dive-bombing me!! Honestly, one has been at it for over an hour. I’m sitting here with a fly swatter and that little troublemaker is about to get creamed!

  • l p

    this day is going well. up and out early to do some shopping. now it’s time to clean this place (for which I’m extremely grateful). thanks

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I dreamt about cats & kittens last night so this is what I did AND YOU ARE NOT TO TELL A SOUL! I drove out to the new house & dug a hole by the hedge. Next week, on my way back from surgery, I’ll collect Idris and bury him there. I may be mad & legally I could be done for trespass but it just makes sense to me.

  • gloria patterson

    At the bank again trying to get my mothers on line banking set up…….. OK got it works now

    Got home and is does not work. Talked to help line THEY set the account up work…………. so back to the bank tomorrow

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I swear, hand on heart, that Mum was in the room with me yesterday. Now I know I had a temp & was probably a bit delerious/dozing on & off all day but there she was in her old dressing gown & slippers. No stick or wheelchair in sight, as clear as anything and smiling.

    • Tamra Phelps

      Fever dreams? I had all sorts of them when I had sepsis. I still remember a lot of them and had to ask about them when I was able because I couldn’t tell if they had really happened then, lol.

  • l p

    regardless of the heat, it’s to stock up the freezer. so it’s a baking day here. love baking and sharing with the neighbours. thanks

  • Sarah L

    Well, not the day I planned. Was up late last night and set my alarm to get up and go swimming. The power went off sometime and my alarm did not go off. When I woke up it was too late to swim with my friend and I thought I’d swim anyway, but the power was still off and I didn’t want to try and get the garage door open without power. So I just went back to bed.

  • Tamra Phelps

    I can’t believe my nephews have gone back to school already, and my niece starts college tomorrow. Soon it will be Fall and then Christmas…I’m getting way ahead of myself here, aren’t I?

  • gloria patterson

    spend the day with great niece (5) we had late breakfast at ihop she had 3 dippie eggs and 2 orders of toast. And she surprised me by eating 6 bites of my french toast……….. and she liked it. We texted a picture to her mother who was shocked at the french toast eating. Then we shopped at walmart. She wants and wants from toy department but she is very good about YOU CAN HAVE THIS OR THAT . She saw a little sewing machine and wanted it so she could sew with mommy so we got it……………… and a few little dolls.

  • Rosie

    I hope your hubby is feeling better, and that is a lot on you, hope you can get some self-care. We had a heat wave, wow, for days it was unbelievable! Then it got nice, you can almost feel fall in the air. It was so mild, I made a loaf of bread with whole wheat, rolled oats and molasses, and it is so good.

  • Annmarie Weeks

    My day has been good! We’re trying to pick out some new paint colors for our condo, and a Sherwin Williams consultant Facetime’d with me & was quite helpful!

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Had my 2nd booster shot yesterday & have felt really nauseous since then. Unless it’s my gall bladder flaring up again.

  • heather

    My day has had it’s ups and down that’s for sure. One good thing though is that I got all my laundry done nice and early this morning.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    It’s so much cooler today. Managed a couple of hours sleep but not enough so I’ll go for a nap after my walk.

  • Michele Soyer

    More heavy rain- can’t go out and work too bad so sad…have to stay in and study…before you know it classes will begin…

  • Chavonne Harvey

    Today was a good day and hopefully tomorrow will be too. I’ve been binge watching Pretty Litte Liars on HBO Max. I love the mystery of the show. Feeling optimistic about life in general.

  • Kal

    Whew! What a day. Six loads of laundry taken care of, made some meals for an elderly neighbour to put in the freezer (some for me as well), and took care of a bunch of emails that needed dealing with. I’m sure I’ll sleep well tonight after a hot bath to apologise to my muscles for making them work so hard today.

  • Sarah L

    Had a lovely dinner for my birthday at my friend’s house. Fresh salmon, asparagus, baked potato and cake and ice cream for dessert.

    A HUGE and I mean HUGE thunder storm last night and more due today. Thankfully it’s brought the temp down so I managed to get a couple of hours sleep, go for a walk, change sheets, do laundry, pay bills etc.

  • Sarah L

    Fun to be back at the Gardens and be a teacher’s assistant. It was a class about Air Plants and very interesting. I have another class in September. Used to do at least 5 or 6 classes a year.

  • Tamra Phelps

    I have gas, lol. I mean the kind you get in your gut and it becomes uncomfortable…I just want to burp really loud and long, lol. Or, you know, fart…either way would be fine by me!!! Ugh. What happened to the days when I could live on cold pizza and soda and never even consider stomach issues?

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good just got home from doing some shopping. It was nice out there today not too many people and the weather is cooler today. Hope you have a great weekend.

  • Michele Soyer

    What a surprise – another tropical wave coming our way – Tobago will be hit first but we are right across from them only 26 mi so …….

  • Tamra Phelps

    I swear, I’ve just been draggy and sleepy all day. Ugh. And now that it’s getting dark I’ll probably be wide awake, lol.

  • Sarah L

  • gloria patterson

  • Sarah L

    Good swim with friends, then a quick trip to the library. 97 degrees today – TOO DARN HOT. (there’s a song about that “Too Darn Hot” is a song written by Cole Porter for his musical Kiss Me, Kate (1948) the year I was born)

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I have slept, showered and slept again all day. Idris the Wonder Cat is still with us! Yer man from the crematorium went to the wrong vet, picked up the wrong cat … I ‘ll sort it all out tomorrow!

  • heather

    Just got in the door from a short drive to the store. Why does 87 degrees feel way hotter than it used to? Seriously, I was baking out there and am just now cooling off. Other than that my day is going pretty good got all my chores done this morning while it was still cool.

  • Michele+Soyer

    Today is a mixed bag of emotions from 2 of my dearest friends.. one very sad. her husband of over 50 years passed and today is the funeral…on the other hand another dear friend has the celebration of her grandsons birthday who is autistic and doin amazing well enough to go out for the day and end it with a restaurant dinner….

  • Tamra Phelps

    Made arrangements to do some shopping on Monday (have to do it 3 days ahead of time with the transport people and weekends don’t count.) Stormed a little earlier. I’m trying to stay positive, lol. But sometimes I’m just positive that I would like to start throwing stuff!

    • Kate Sarsfield

      Do it! My sis, back in the 80/90s lived with a self-made millionaire – huge house, 3 big dogs and feeling completely alone. She used to go to car boot sales to buy dinner sets then take out all her frustration by smashing them against a wall!

  • gloria patterson

    great niece (5) spend the day with me. We painted a plaster owl and some rocks. Spend time with great grandma. Wore me out I will be crashing early and sleeping late

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Left here at 5am & got to the hospital 4 hours later – all went well. Next stop the pet crematorium to collect what’s left of Idris except it wasn’t him. The photos, tufts of fur were of a ginger cat. So, where the hell is he and who is this cat? Went to visit Mum & Dad’s grave, popped in to my sister, despaired at the state of my plants that she’s looking after and collected my post that has been sitting on her desk for more than 2 months – I’m too fecking tired & upset to get angry. Onwards to the storage facilities where I got what what I had on my list, then collected Idris’ bed etc.from the cattery and finally got back here at 7pm. What a bloody day! Oh, forgot to mention that we’re experiencing the hottest and driest August EVER!

  • heather

    My day is going better now that I made it home. I had to do some running around town today and had a woman pull right out in front of me I had to slam on the break to avoid hitting her really shook me up close call!

  • l p

    the day is going – well? trying to sort out a long-standing commercial website problem. I feel like I’m a tennis ball going back and forth. so, one could say the day is ‘interesting’ so far. thanks

  • Michele+Soyer

    I should be out in the garden – the day is starting out beautiful – all i want to do is sit here looking at houses in Corfu!!

    • Kate Sarsfield

      You do realise that Europe is on fire – drought -no water to irrigate fruit/veg so food shortages – no gas thanks to Putin – inflation sky high – businesses closing – tourist mayhem/airlines cancelling flights AND sales of tickets to try to clear the backlog – inflation running at 12%+- and war in Ukraine that’s affecting everything. Apart from that, you’re more than welcome!

  • Tamra Phelps

    I was up way early in case the housing inspectors decided to come by here…so of course they didn’t. They never tell you which apartments they might actually inspect. In truth, I never saw hide nor hair of them, and I don’t think they were even on site. So, once again, I wasted the hours of 8-4 waiting on people who never show up.

  • heather

    It has been one of “those” day where everything seems to go wrong. I tell ya it’s been one thing after another today and it has put me in a pissy mood. lol

  • gloria patterson

    My mothers (93) finally gave in and asked for help in doing her bill paperwork. Trip to the bank and I am now signed on to her account and also doing her bills on line……………………….. A bit of a mess they are

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Too hot for comfort so doing as little as possible & staying indoors and organising myself for tomorrow’s early start.

  • Tamra Phelps

    There’s not a lot going on today. I scheduled a few rides for doctor’s appointments later this month and did some house cleaning. That’s it.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Up at 7am. Tomorrow it’ll be 6, then 4.30 on Wednesday to get to Wexford for 9am. We’re heading into a week of high temps so I had my walk early.

  • gloria patterson

    Need gas so trip to kroger pumps…………. had to get the attended to show me how to get my points they changed the system./ I had enough points to get .40 off per gallon. finally total $ 54.41 full tank

  • Sarah L

    I see some people have been able to get here, but I haven’t been able to get to this site for 4 days. Have no idea why.

  • heather

    My day is going pretty good now that the power is back on! Our power went out this morning and I freaked out because it is going to be 102 degrees here today and we need our power on!

  • Tamra Phelps

    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.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    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.

  • Michele+Soyer

    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….

  • Tamra Phelps

    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.

  • gloria patterson

    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.

  • heather

    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.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    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.

  • Michele+Soyer

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

  • Tamra Phelps

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • gloria patterson

    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

    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

    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.

    • gloria patterson

      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.

    • Tamra Phelps

      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.

  • Michele+Soyer

    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…

    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.

  • gloria patterson

    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.

    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.
