Oh, it looked so close!! The PCH prize patrol looked like they were in the Midwest where hogs, corn & soybeans were the state’s commodity. It was promising until the next clue was, the winner does NOT live in the capital of his or her state. LOL, well that takes me out!! Bummer … $5,000 a week. What would you do with that???
It’s been awhile since I’ve played the computer keyboard. I may hunt and peck on the tablet or phone, but to actually be typing, well, not so much. Main reason is that I hit the wrong keys while typing. Not because I don’t know how, as I could, at one point, type 70+ words per minute, but, my hand doesn’t stretch that little bit to reach the next key, just out of the position. It also may not help that my hands are sitting at an angle.
I’ve been a bit on the blah side. I’m not sure if I’ve lost my purpose of why I’m here on this earth or if I’m frustrated at the realization of what my body is going through and further realization that I have this f)*&%%g disease! The anger part is sitting just under the skin and can erupt without too much provocation. Unfortunately, it’s at hubby. Sometimes he deserves it, sometimes he doesn’t. Yes, I do drop F Bombs when I’m angry. The sailor in me comes out and I wasn’t even in the Navy!!
This month is our annual physical month. Hubby’s had to do his tests and now I have to do mine. I’m not happy about the camera up the bum. The doc wanted to know why I didn’t do it last year. I told him that I was poked and prodded enough last year, that I refused to go. So, I guess I’ll have to go this year. Then I’ll be good for another 10 years … well on that test anyway.
I also have to get a mammogram. Ugh, my records are in Nevada, so they will have to contact them to get those so they can be compared. The doc showed hubby how to do my monthly breast exam. My hands don’t flatten out, so I cannot properly do one (not that I ever did before). LOL, I was changing shirts and hubby looked at me and said, “Is it time for a breast exam again?” That cracked me up!
This getting old sh*t is getting, well, old!! Tests, exams, medications, why in the world did I want to be older when I was a kid?!?! Oh wait, my youth wasn’t that great. It was sprinkled with little bits of greatness followed by fear, disappointment, & sadness.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE being near 3 of our grandchildren and seeing them every week. They take away my blues and blahs, but when I’m not with them, I sit in this apartment watching the tele as my brain starts to lose it’s knowledge. I’m not alone, as it is happening to hubby too. I know we need to figure out what to do to keep us going, but sometimes, that seems a bit too much like work! I did get to drive the other day as he was still loopy from his medical test. It was quite fun and I should do that more often. I’ll have to make small jaunts here and there, just so that I can feel a little more free. The walls start to close in on me and it doesn’t help that winter was upon us. Today is a beautiful day and I’m inside, marinating chicken wings to make fried Adobo wings. It sounded good to me. Not sure what I’m making with them, as I’m not as creative as my son.
Tomorrow morning, we are taking our grandson to his ice hockey tournament. His team is 1st in his league, so he doesn’t have to be there until 10am. I am excited to go and watch them play. Near the ice rink is a store called Kolache Factory. OMGosh … my son took me there last weekend, it was quite good and I look forward to stopping there tomorrow!! So that’s my looking forward thing for this weekend. I need to create more looking forward things each week, so I can get out of my rut.
Here’s hoping you all have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by my little blog!!
