I'm On the Fence
I’m posting early this week because I have no choice. In fact I’m writing this on Saturday because
I know the rest of this week will be filled with a lot of stuff I’m not really
going to be able to have much of a sense of humor about-I mean it.
First off-my rheumatologist told me to use Dragon Speak-yet
here I am typing this entry. You know
why? Because I hate technology and it
hates me, that’s why. Why is that they have this technology that’s supposed to
make things easier and it doesn’t?
Okay let’s put that aside.
On Monday, I get the fun of going through another epidural-this
time a double version. Will the fun never end? As if that isn’t enough I get to
go to physical therapy on Tuesday. Nothing says enjoyment like having someone
work with you so you won’t hurt yourself further.
I guess I should’ve been more careful when we were hugging –
tore my rotator cuff. The rheumy laughed at me! He wanted to know what would
happen if I weren’t taking the Fosamax and the calcium? I have to say, I don’t
think I care anymore. I would just like to be able to hug my husband without
creating a new problem that will take months to fix.
On Wednesday, my husband and I will be on the road going to
Phoenix. Now normally, this would be really fun. After all, we usually go to visit
our kids and grandkids. This time though, we will barely get to see them. This
trip is for something totally different – I may feel like telling you more next
week. Or not.
You might have noticed that I’m a bit ambivalent about this
next week. I’m on the fence. I really don’t know if I’m happy to go or not. I’d
be a lot happier if it were just to see our daughter, our son, our son-in-law
and the grandkids but it’s not.
This trip could be good but even if it is one of us will be
happier than the other. I’m not sure.
What I would like to know is how much will it cost to move
my house? After all, I’ve gone through all the heartache/headache of remodeling
it – shouldn’t I be the one to enjoy it? Also I noticed that a lot of Phoenix
doesn’t believe in adult size cabinetry.
I’m 5’1-1/2”; shouldn’t cabinets come up to at least my
waist? Another point of interest, I think all the Formica that was left in the
world from the ‘60’s was dumped in this particular city and put in every single
house that’s for sale.
I’d go on with more observations but Lily, our female grand
pup, is barking and she’s stirring up the other three pets. I’ve already broken up 3 “fights” this
morning-so this is an emergency.
Until the 17th, I bid you adieu.
