Some days can sure get long. Today the big chore was driving my dad to his appt. at the VA. It meant 2 hours in the car....and my mom decided to come along for the ride. I get really worn out helping them with canes and interpreting thi... Read more

This day turned out to be a full one. I had stirred up a big batch of cookies the other day and didn't get them baked. So today I froze 5 doz. little cookie balls to bake whenever I "need" a pan of cookies. Then I baked the other 7 doz. The ... Read more

This was an interesting day. My mom was having a good day and it was nice outside so I took her for a ride and a little shopping. She wasn't even too confused. So that was nice. I also made a rather startling discovery. I really don't... Read more

Most of this months big stock up items are in the house and stashed in the closet until I need them. But my neck and shoulders are barely up to even sitting at the computer any more today. So I've taken the pain meds allowed me and will ... Read more

Today started off with feeling great when I got out of bed. Did figure out that you can do a lot of little chores during TV commercials. Throw a load of clothes in the washer, empty the dishwasher, sweep a floor or even run the vacum a l... Read more

I am having a full blown arthritis attack today. Joints that almost never ache are sore and tender. I listened to my body and tried to keep it slow and not do anything that would make this worse. I did my chair marching and even a short... Read more

One more day to go to a whole month....wow. Nothing I have tried in years has helped me stay on an even keel like making little notes about my day. I think what helps most is that someone or anyone can read it and either feel sorry for me or m... Read more

I haven't decided if today was a good day or a crazy day. It seems like a bit of both. Early this morning after doing what my mom calls the suszy homemaker stuff. i was hit with a need to throw stuff away. After I filled to kitchen trash bag... Read more

I'm not quite sure what got done today. I know I emptied the dishwasher, I finished a hat and stirred up a batch of cookies (from my I want to try these someday pile). But they needed to chill overnight so they are in the frig. Beyond t... Read more

The foggy damp weather was hard on my arthritis today. I feel pretty much like the rusted tin man. My shoulders, knees, left hand and toes are all sore. I gave up and took a pain pill about 6 pm. I'll have another now before I go to bed. ... Read more

Wow today was another good one. I probably should do more exercise but for the time being I'll settle for my 15 to 20 min. of vigorous chair marching. I also manage 5 to 7 wall pushups every other day. I cleaned another shelf in the fri... Read more

Today I decided that I needed some form of structure to start clearing away things complete with rewards for making progress. The progress today included cleaning off a shelf in the frig. It needed it. The things I enjoy are my computer ... Read more

The night was not good. My mind refused to turn off. But the day turned out just plain weird. It started with my mom calling and telling me my brother was here and they were coming out to my house. I'm very uncomfortable having people ... Read more

Do you all remember the saying... the best laid plans of mice and men? Well that is the way this day went. I started out working on the hutch but then my neighbor came by with another huge bag of tomatoes. So I got out the big soup pot and si... Read more

Slept better last night, but today was more about other peoples problems. My mom "lost" her meds, my dad needed a football schedule and my neighbor needed someone to go over and feed her cat for the weekend. All the problems got solved and I c... Read more
