No catchy title today. And I didn't blog yesterday...I was having some major computer problems...it was so slow!! Thankfully it is faster today. I went to bed at 9:30 pm last night in the middle of the movie Mr. Valentine. I wanted to stay up and watch the end, but I wanted to sleep more!! I thought the movie was cute, but I am sure it will be on again and I will catch it then. Maybe I won't be so tired!!
I only slept until 4 am. That is 6.5 hours of sleep. It is better than a poke in the eye!! My neck is extremely stiff and sore this morning. I need to do some research on Trigger Point Injections before Friday. I am not too excited about them, but they can't hurt as bad as a steroid injection in the knee or foot!!
Something has got to help. They don't want to continue to give me flexiril. They don't think it is a good idea to be on them long-term.
I got my new computer screen and I love it!! Mine was such a dinasour!! It is a flat screen. It barely takes up any room on my desk!! Now I have room for other things. And I can put it closer to me...which really helps when you have to use bifocals. Sometimes I wonder if that is why I am having trouble with my neck. I have to look through my bifocals to see the computer screen. No...I don't want to get tri-focals!! My sister tried them and had a terrible time. Hers were progressives and not sure if that was the reason they bothered her so much. When I got my glasses last fall they asked if I want progressives and I said no. I am used to regular bifocals and I don't want to change. I have heard of other people having lots of trouble with progressives and I didn't want to take the chance.
We are expecting heavy rain and thunderstorms today. What's new!! I will be glad when this rain stops and we actually have sun for more than 2 days in a row!! I don't have my air conditioner yet, so I guess it is good that it is still cool outside. It still gets to 75 in my apt., but I have worked out a way to open the window and door to bring a draft through the house.
I haven't had any hot flashes the past couple of days. Amazing!! I have been using fans regularly and I used the ceiling fan at Bobbie's when I house sat. It goes fast and cools the room off quickly. Bobbie and Vance saw 8 bears in Yellowstone Park yesterday! They said it was awesome to see and they took some pictures...so they will be fun to look at when they get them developed.
Vance has season tickets to the Billings Mustangs (baseball team) and will be gone to all the games this year. So Bobbie and I will get caught up on her photo albums. We haven't worked on them in quite awhile. I did a year of mine, but I didn't have very many pictures...so it went fast!!
I love to scrapbook!!
Well, I need to put my food into the tracker from yesterday. My computer was so slow...I got frustrated and turned it off after working on it for 3 hours....that was just putting food in the tracker from Thursday and Friday!! Some days I have some patience...other days I really don't!!
Have a great day....and remember...it is what you make it!!
