We went to my therapy session today and it was snowing lightly on our way up to N Dakota. The therapist said I was doing great (even though it hurt a lot. When I got done my husband said we had to go straight home since the snow was coming down harder and faster. I think I agree with him that their predictions of 5 – 7 inches is not far off, maybe even more!
Heading out to the studio, need to dig out so I can work out there tomorrow. Not sure in Carol will be working tomorrow, but I hope so. I desperately need another trim. Short hair is fine, and it may look good, BUT it takes several trips to the barber to keep it short and neat (at least on my end!
According to the weather aps, we are on a storm watch with an expected 4 – 8 inches by tomorrow. Normally I love the snow, but I have an appointment out of state tomorrow. I don’t drive in inclement weather. I could be out in my studio working on perfecting my baskets and doing the cards! But, NO! I am stuck doing mundane things in questionable weather. Just hope it passes us up so I can get up to the appointment and back safely!
Last Oct. I fell on my right shoulder and went to the doctor who x-rayed my shoulder and announced I should have surgery due to a damaged rotater cup. Since I could not afford that he told me to do some exercises and if it didn’t heal up he would send to Therapy. Well, to day was the first of 4 sessions. If I show improvement then it is a torn ligament, if not it is a torn rotater, in which case they can’t correct or fix it without surgery (which I can’t afford!). We will know next week one way or the other. Cheers!
Seems to me that the weather is acting like a roller-coaster lately. One week our highs are in the negatives then we are in the upper 30’s to 40’s in the positive. I am glad I now have heat to my studio. I just got asked to design a set of note cards for the Petrified park! That and my baskets should do great and I won’t have to be in the public eye a lot. Easier on my nerves! Cold front going through this week and then we will be back up the double positives again.
As we draw closer to Yule &/or Christmas, life becomes crazier. We are bombarded with ads for what we have to buy to make our loved ones happy. Our society has become obsessed with following what some suit says at age 5 a child should have his own mega gaming system and smart phone. I’m sorry, but this is not what I consider a worthwhile pastime for preparing for the season. I would rather have family and friends visit on the day with empty hands and stomachs so we can enjoy food and company sharing the joy of the season.
So what do you all feel thankful for this year. I am glad the the hubster is feeling a little better, for my family and friends in the Dakotas and on this site. I am thankful that I didn’t break my neck when I fell off the porch of my studio. And that I have my fur babies as well as I get my lower chompers on the 30th of this month as well as a new set of specks to correct the astigmatism the right eye! I am thankful that winter hasn’t really hit yet and the weather is cooler now which suits my body temp quite well. Chime in on the things you are thankful for!
It is called the PRACTICE of medicine for a reason. We are the guinea pigs for their trying to “cure the world” of all its ailments. My husband was tentatively diagnosed with something called Parvo B18. He was given Pregnizone to help. It helped all right and two weeks after he was off it, the pain returned. Instead of renewing the meds the doc. had him wait in pain for two weeks while he ran another battery of tests. When he got up this AM, his right hand was swollen twice the size of his lift hand which was also swelling. Guess what! He’s back on pregnizone and has an appointment with a specialist for Rheumatoid Arthritis.
For my part I was told I will need shoulder surgery and possible knee surgery from the spill I took off my porch! One good thing in the last three visits went from 165 lbs. to 158 lbs. to 154 lbs. Just another eventful day in my life in the Dakotas.
