Just another day in the hood...
Why is it I only seem to post when I am feeling rotten? Maybe its because I have more get up and go other days and don't sit glued to my recliner feeling sorry for myself and trying to escape the pain.
Anyways, today the weather is changing back to gloomy and cloudy and my joints and muscles sure can predict the changes in advance. We had several great days of sun and high pressure and I got lots done around the house. Took down Christmas, redecorated the living room by moving accessories around and started faux finishing some candle sticks for the front hall that had no personality. I expected to finish them in one day but my numb hands gave out and its now day three with at least one more to go. :) Oh well. Better something than nothing.
A good old friend from my tennis days came over bringing lunch at noon and she proceded to entertain me with hilarious stories of her life. Everything to Marilyn is an adventure and she will spill her stories with very little prodding. I thoroughly enjoyed her company and the homemade tomato soup and chicken salad.
I feel the IViG losing its punch. Hopefully I will have enough energy to finish up all I have planned for the week mostly consisting of winter clean up and reorganization. January is usually the month I clean up the computers doing back ups of data and then opening the boxes and blowing out the debris. I hope I can manage it this year. Lets hope my hands and lower back cooperate with the screwdriver to get into the cases. (Yes, my box is 8 years old and still needs a screw driver to get into it!)
IVig Next week in three days only. I might change it to 2 days twice a month. We will see. One pop of this should make my deductible for the year.
Later in January when my husband and child return from their 6 day trip to London, I plan on seeing a neurosurgeon and then a pain management clinic to see if there is anything they can do to get rid of this constant pain in my neck and lower back. The world would look a lot brighter if I didn't have to suffer all day everyday with pain. Ugh. Medication, as I have found out, is NOT the answer as it just has horrible side effect and wastes my brain.
Have started doing a picture of the day on facebook to try and keep my photography skills up. Creative and technical. On a gloomy day like today it was tough.
