A Favor

Hey, y'all. Sunday morning and all is well. I have quite a bit of energy lately, although the face still hurts, along with my mouth. But all in all, I am better. I have been taking bee pollen so if I start turning yellow and black, please tell me!
My favor is, could everyone send me their address and phone number? I have flat dab lost my address book and I am lost without it. I need to get another one, MUCH bigger, like that big ass calculator that I have!!!! I appreciate it!!!!
It seems cooler outside. I know we will have one hundred degree days again, but until then, ahhhh, cooler. In fact, this hasn't even been a hot summer for me. One of the many drugs I am taking keeps me from sweating too much. So, I have gone from taking a couple of baths a day due to the heat, to being able to hang up my clothes because I didn't sweat!!! Hallelujah!!!!
OKay, I will talk to everyone later. PLEASE send me your home addresses, if you don't mind, because I need to start addressing Christmas cards soon!!!!!!!!!
Thanks!!! Here is another pic of Goob with one of her new friends. Isn't she precious? She looks totally happy, which makes me totally happy! WELL, I can't get to the picture. Believe me, she is happy. She has a one eyed dog that she plays with quite often. I don't know what the deal is with my computer. I can finally get mail at both of my addresses so, who knows? I hope it fixes itself!!!

Monday, Monday

Well, I got bummed out as soon as I checked the computer. BERNIE MAC DIED! He seemed to be such a family man and really funny, it just makes me sad. Too many young men being taken away, don't you agree?
I am going to see mom at the nursing home soon. It is so weird, mom in a nursing home! But she can't live by herself now and after the last year or two, I CANNOT become a caregiver again. I still am recovering from that.
The spasms come and go, mainly come, and I applied for a job the other day. I am so concerned that I am going to spasm my way out of a job if I can't get them under control. I have only been on the new medicine for a little over a week. Maybe, just maybe, it will kick in and I will be okay. I had four days without them last week, so I know they are getting better. I am just afraid that the spasms will overcome the medicine! I go back to the doc next week.
I love the fact that it is so cloudy and drizzly outside today. Finally, coolness. Although, I have to admit, since I am on this medicine, one of them make me cold, so I haven't gotten really hot this summer. And it is almost mid August, so can I say "YAY"? OKy, YAY!
WEll, that is all for now. Talk to you soon! I may have used this pic before, but it kind of sets the tone for a Monday, don't you think?

Monday morning, August 4 and school has started!!!!

Can you believe that? I am sure glad I don't have anyone in the school district that I had to get ready for school today!
Yesterday was my sister Linda's birthday. Happy Birthday, Linda!!! One more year!!!
I did just find out that insurance paid an over one thousand dollar bill I had received over the weekend. Sweet. I sincerely hope that I am just about through with doctor bills.
It is hot as blue blazes but I still have to go out. We actually had rain yesterday! That means yes, the grass will need cutting, but the air is clear and hopefully allergies will be less for those who have them.
Well, I don't have much to say today. Just have a great day! Oh, and isn't my son handsome???????

Here I am again!

So, it's been a while since I have posted anything. My typing skills have suffered, probably from all of the medicine I have been taking. BUT, this newest she gave me has really done a good job. I can talk again and the spasms have slowed down. I don't mean that it goes sloooooow, I mean few and far between!! And yes, it is a second antidepressant, but I am feeling so much better, I just am not worried about it!
Congrats to Pam for her new grandson, Anthony.
Well, my new couch has pick marks on it and I discovered a long mark on it. It is still worth the money and let's face it, it is a couch. I refuse to let it get me down, especially after what is important to me that I have lost!
Here is some big news - my mother has permanently moved into a nursing home, the one that my sister works at. She seems healthier and she is not alone and we don't have to worry if she is eating and taking her meds. It is a weird feeling. The ol'homestead will not be there anymore, but you know, so much has changed, this is just one more thing. If I had known she was going to do this, I'd have just taken her couch!!! That is the best couch!!! But again, it is just a thing.
I had better sign off now. I am making more errors and it just takes a lot of effort to do this now. But it is getting better every day.
OH, it is 100 degrees. One of my medicines keeps me cold all of the time. So I have had the thermostat set pretty high and am comfortable. BONUS! The light bill won't be so high!!!!!!!! And I am not sweating as much as usual, so that is so wonderful!
Okay, see ya later!
