Going Along With the Plan
Going with the Flow this Week
What a week! Some
good, some bad, some angering.
Our decision to play “tourists” in Sedona was fun. We loved it last time, but because we had
Lucky with us we missed a LOT of gorgeous sites. I posted the picture of Steve and me at the
Enchantment Resort. The Red Rock Magical
Trolley ride was a great way to see the city and some places we’ll definitely
go back and walk.
Sedona is simply GORGEOUS.
When I said, “you know this is prettier than the Grand Canyon.” He replied that the going phrase for those
who are fortunate enough to live in this serene wonder is that “God created the
Grand Canyon, but he lives in Sedona.”
That’s a great explanation of the beauty.
We ate what we were told was the “famous” and best breakfast
place in town-known for their 101 omelets, but the French toast “was to die
So after we finished our tour we went back. It was cute and friendly. I was starving since all I had had was a 24
ounce cup of coffee and my available morning meds. Never should I go until 11:30 a.m. without
food-I was BAD.
I went with omelet #101-PB & J with bananas. I passed on the spuds and had fruit and asked
for egg whites and 12 grain bread-light on the jelly. It was very rich. I probably would not have that again. Steve went for an all meat omelet with salsa
and avocado and sour cream. Of course he
also ordered the French toast.
We left there wondering what the fuss was about. It was okay, really nothing special. However, unlike the Blue Moon Café that we
went to the last time-the bathrooms were clean.
Next trip-we’ll go to uptown and to the much cuter looking
Golden Goose restaurant for breakfast.
Plus, our guide pointed out a great place that does foot massage and
reflexology. I’m up for trying that!
Tuesday was a bit of a downturn. We had errands and I had another
epidural. I’m not sure what the
difference is between a “full” and a “booster”, but I can tell you they both
HIT JUST THE RIGHT NERVES. Spent the
rest of the day with the fur babies on my lap and Steve handing me ice packs.
Better on Wednesday-at least it seems to have improved the
lower back and below! Shoulder stinks
though. Now for the real BAD thing. At 9 a.m. my doorbell rang-process server
with paperwork informing me that the guy who was cited for negligence and
vehicular/bodily damages with several witnesses saying it was his fault-well
his insurance company has the nerve to sue me for reckless driving and being in
their client’s way of speeding through a red light.
Called my brother-in-law and attorney. Great, just great.
Thursday. Since I’m
writing this on Wednesday- let’s just say that I have my usual appointment with
my rheumatologist and my first Reclast infusion. Not that anyone there actually suggested
anything to me, but I read up on this stuff on the internet. Seems I should really, really hydrate today,
tomorrow and Friday. I may have no
reaction or I may feel as if I have the worst case of the flu-ever.
I’m hoping it’s the first, since frankly, I’m sick of
feeling awful and don’t need any more.
Plus-I’m supposed to entertain Dylan on Friday while Steve has to work
on his day off.
REALLY GOOD NEWS: We
are officially on baby watch! Could be
anytime now. Hoping Samantha has as easy
a birth as she’s had a pregnancy. Can
hardly wait to see and hold Jackson Dale!
Now I’ve heard a couple of times from Big Dave that he’s been
unable to make a comment on the various blogs-I have no idea why and how the
change happened. If you’ve been reading
for any length of time-you know that this glitch could take a while to fix. But I did get Dave’s comments on my e-mail-so
go ahead and send them that way! Love to
hear from everyone!
