It has been a bit since I was last here, but I am caught up on everyone's posts now.
I can't believe it's only a week until Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with your families. It would be fun for you ladies to share some of your favorite family Thanksgiving traditions, foods or funny cooking or family stories.
I have been busy with doctors appts., Kirby and other stuff. Using the bus for transportation, while I'm grateful to have it, it makes getting things done so much more drawn out and time/energy consuming. So once I get home I am tuckered out and my brain isn't able to really form any good conversation to post here. But I'm sure you all know how it goes. I have 4 loads of laundry sitting here all separated and sprayed, waiting for me to take them to the laundry room, but I haven't made it there yet. I now have no more towels in the kitchen or bathroom and won't be able to get to the laundry until Saturday. Dentist tomorrow, then volunteering on Friday.
Yesterday I had my appt. with Palliative Care, then went to the store to pick up a few items, and when I got home at 7 p.m. I started baking some Pumpkin/Cranberry/Pecan & Chocolate Zucchini Breads. I made them for a friend whose B-day was back on Oct. 31st. Because she is so busy we weren't able to get together until today for lunch, and she likes those breads. I can only do so much in any one day. After I got home from our lunch and my massage at 4 p.m. this afternoon I laid down and took a 2 hour nap. And so it goes!
Also, I've been having quite the time with phlebitis in my lower left leg. Had an Ultrasound, and no blood clot, but boy oh boy does it hurt. It's hot, red and burns. It hurts to even have the bed sheet rub across it. I am wearing my compression sock now, but I don't like them tho. So hard to get on.
Mags - Thinking of you and praying for your comfort. Thank you for sharing the pic of the flag folding. I was also very happy to read how everything worked out regarding the funeral planning, insurance, etc.
JeeNee - Welcome! I hope you can get more rest tonight. Ever since my mets dx in 2014 I've had insomnia from the treatments I'm on too. I have to take xanax, and a low dose muscle relaxer in order to get any sleep.
M0mmy - You have the worst luck with neighbors. So sorry. I hope things with the newest ones don't continue to go downhill from here. Your rolls sound yummy!
Sheppie - Ewww!, since I am very sensitive to smells, I think I'd have plopped on the couch or made FFH do so. So sorry he has been treating you so horrible. Can we pummel him when we get there?
Also, thanks for the info on the computers. I didn't realize your had such a wealth of knowledge on them.
Wren - Sorry I missed your B-day, but hopefully this will make you smile still.
Queenie - I wish you the happiest Birthday month! Vroom Vroom! Keep flying and keep'em guessing.
Loverly - Mia is such a cutie! Those pics are beautiful.
Sassy - I am really looking forward to December. It seems like you really have your hands full with trying to find a new computer.
Hello Bluebird! - Hope you are doing well.
Well I guess I'll say goodnight for now.
