Is the topic Today or is it What's going on with your day?

I gave in today, went to Urgent Care very close by. Very nice people.
Dr. wrote a prescription for cough syrup with Codeine.
I should sleep very well tonight. This bug or infection, is making me terribly
tired.
This morning I watched a replay of Men's curling at Olympics. USA won gold and such a nice group of guys.

Lightfoot, I'll share a photo of little Chuckie on Facebook. Also Pablo, the puppy another son and his wife picked up from an Animal shelter. You will see them on my timeline.

I changed my mind. I unfriended some people, and unfollowed some others. Reduces the garbage considerably.

Not today, Lightfoot. I slept most of the day, trying to rid my Bronchial passages and sinus cavities of congestion. I waited too long seeking medical attention. Now it's taking longer. I think I posted scripture on FB. Not much else. I hope to feel well enough tomorrow to get back into life.

Feeling good this morning. I was stirring around in my recliner at about 5 this morning. Watched a little news- still going on and on about the record flooding in our area.
Chipper pawed at my chair at about 6, so I took him outside- nice out there- clear, and 29F.
Dawn will be spending the day with Fred today, so sometime today, I hope to take Chipper for a walk, maybe go to the vet for his rabies shot and heartworm test, get him some Revolution topical, go to City Hall for Chipper's license, and stop by the pharmacy to see about getting some test strips for my glucose tester.
Have a good day all!

Good morning all. Suppose to be a bit warmer here today. LLF my oldest son never got his driver's license. He make up all kinds of excuses to us all. It's not my problem to deal with but he should know better. He is not allowed to drive his girlfriend's mom's car now. Because if he does and he is pulled over, this time they will take her vehicle as well. I'm sure glad you got your cable fixed and that your internet is working better now to Glad.

Yeah if we have to go to the license bureau and take a driving test and pay to have the license renewed every so many years then yes your son should too.

Mine come due in July. Hoping I get a good report. I haven't driven at night (except down the road to my church) in many years now. I think some nights I would be able to but not on major highway. I probably could get to my place of employment at night for it about 2 miles from house and I know the road well. But the problem lies with vehicles' headlights approaching me and sometimes they blind me....especially those blue lights.

My license is due this year too. Every 4 years, I try to pass the eye test without my glasses, but I just can't do it. Maybe this year... Headlights bother me too, but I can drive at night if I have to. Have had a driver's license continuously for the past 48 years.

I'm beginning to feel better. Not over the hump, but better than yesterday. Thanks for the well wishes.

Driver's license. I was in my mid 40s when I learned to drive. I'm fairly certain I renewed mine by mail last year. The only ticket I had didn't go on my record, but it cost me $100.00. I managed to talk my way out of a few speeding tickets thankfully. Driving after dark is okay in areas I know. I do have trouble in poorly lit areas.

Sad news to report here.
Got a call yesterday afternoon from my oldest son Chris. Seems his girlfriend's mom, her name is Andi, wasn't doing well. She had been in the hospital in Iowa City for over a week. She just took a bad time since he husband Ben passed away , 2 weeks before Christmas. Neada , Andi's mom was heart broken and wanted to be with Ben her husband. She got worse and yesterday , they had to do CPR on her 4 times to bring her back. Then put her on life support. But Neada, Andi's mom died this morning, she never came back after all that. Chris and Andi live in Mt Pleanant, Iowa which is 50 miles from us. We don't have a good enough vehicle to get up there but if we need a ride we can go for sure. Andi has family and a sister so that helps. I sure feel sorry for son's girlfriend. They have been together for 7 years now. Please say a prayer for the family.

My Day:

This has been my best day since Monday Feb. 19th.
It felt like Spring outside. I think that helped, plus
the congestion seems to have loosened in chest and sinus
cavities.
I was able to visit Angel and little Chuckie and were they glad
to see Grama.
Lightfoot, thank you for posting photos of Chuckie(The sleeping puppy) and Pablo (The muscular white and black doggie)

I also managed a load of laundry, and a walk along the Creekside garden space. I see tiny green leaves peeping up from the soil.

My day was not the best. Was find until I got home from the outing with the two lady friends. We ate at Steak and Shake and I did eat today. Last week I sat and watched them eat. I ordered a burger and substituted the fries with coleslaw. I did not eat all the bread on the burger. I had water to drink. Blood sugar was over 300 about 3 hours after lunch. I had salad for supper. Will take the blood sugar again in the morning. I almost want to give up.....I try so hard. I am going to ask to see a dietician if medicare will cover it. I rode my stationary bike awhile ago for about 5 mins. Will get back into that daily again.

Not a whole lot going on here yet. I'll be taking a shower and washing my hair around 9 this morning. Then, Dawn is supposed to be treating some friends (and me) to a casino visit later.
Right now, we have rain here, but this is supposed to change to a wet snow by 10, and moving out of our area by 6 p.m.

So once more I plead that your rotten weather stay away from SE Michigan, Lightfoot.
Never mind how, just placate me!

35 degrees with constant rainfall. Not hard rain, just a type that would be pleasant falling on the metal roof and lulling me to sleep, if it was 12:00 dark, not 12:00 light!

I have done almost nothing today. My energy seems to be very slow returning. Food has no attraction, but I eat enough to keep me going. I debate taking another dose of the cough syrup just to try getting that final bit of congestion out of my Bronchial passages, but I hesitate due to the Codeine in it.

Sorry you're still under the weather, joyous. Hey! I made a funny! You're ill, and it's raining!
Anyway, the rain should be out of your area by now.
Dawn treated me to a casino visit today. Got there about 11:00, ate at the buffet, and left for home about 5 p.m. Rain was changing to snow, when we were driving there. Snow was all gone, and roads were clear when we headed home. That's been my day. I'll tell ya'. Those new tires on the front of my car really make a difference!

We are snowed in here and the UK is in meltdown over it with thousands of schools closed and also businesses. My mil's cleaner/shopper is off sick so we must shop for her but I'm not going to clean her house. It will go another week but no doubt she will be chuntering on about that. Very old people can get very egocentric and think they are the centre of the world. I find mil irritating as all she talks about is herself and absolute trivia is major major. ie she rang to say her night check carer had come in early because of the weather and was really put out. So selfish as well. She was fortunate the woman came at all with being on a bike and snow everywhere but that's our Cross to bear!!

I am going to have to make another trip to the doctor's office to pick up a product for a home test. I will do the test on Monday and take the sample back on Tuesday. (24 hour test from the time I wake up til I wake up the next morning.) After I stop at the Doc's office I will go to Walmart then to file my taxes.

2Anne, it's true that some elderly folks become self-centered.
Perhaps they were always like that, but it wasn't noticed as
much since they didn't require as much attention?
Also, their world becomes far more narrow as they age.
The lady I ironed for died on her 101st birthday and
she never seemed self centered to me. She kept an
avid interest in everything all her days.

Lightfoot, your day sounds interesting.

Glad, you stay busy it seems.

I did very little aside from dodging ice chunks as it fell from
the very tall trees over our trailer. Also at my son's trailer as
I went to care for Angel and little Chuckie. Back home, I lay
on the bed where the sun was shining through windows and
slept. It was so pleasant and felt healing.

Today was my daughter's birthday. I haven't been going out,
so didn't see her, but we talked.

Today, I took Chipper for a walk along the sidewalk, out by the road here, while Dawn was getting ready to take off for the weekend. Then, I sat outside with her, while she waited for her ride.
Then, I came in on the computer for a while, again took Chipper for a walk- first a ride downtown, and then, a walk on the boardwalk- to Mahan Park at one end, then to Hansen Park, at the other end, behind the library, walked up the hill from behind the Griswold Center, by the old Courthouse, which is being moved, and back to the Zipline across the river, which is where my car was parked. Drove over to Dollar General for some office supplies, to McDonald's for a triple Cheeseburger for Chipper (so I got one for me too), and home again.
Time for a nap now.

Lightfoot, the walking will do you a world of good.

Glad, you're way ahead of us with planting. Our
ground is far too wet for setting out or planting.
I wish I could watch you set out onions. One year
I grew beautiful onions. Last year, they barely
grew at all. I do rather well with potatoes.

My day:
A load of wash.
Lunch.
Decided to visit each of my children.I miss seeing
them due to being sick. I managed to spend time
with son # 2 (Child # 3) leaving birthday cards
for his wife and my 19 year old Gr.son, then I
was tired and came home. I reckon it will take
some time for me to regain energy.
Son #3 (Child # 4 ) and his wife stopped by.
I did stop at my youngest's long enough to hug
him and say hello to Angel and little Chuckie.

Good morning all. Sorry I haven't been around but I'm here now. On Sat afternoon John and myself went to the mall here. They had their annual model trains and John loves them. Our friends were their but couldn't stay so we still stayed. John looked at all the stuff for sale and got a few things. Then after that we went and got something to eat and got what we needed at the store and came home. Yesterday we just stayed at home for the day. Did a few things around the house and rested up. Not sure what we will be doing today. Do have some bills to pay of course. Rainy here this morning and suppose to rain again tomorrow to.
