Good morning ladies!
My shoulder is much better this morning. That gives me hope that this is a week-long injury instead of a month-long. Yay!
My mom told me this morning she is supposed to take some of her pills twice a day and she couldn't find them last night. So the system is working! Yay! She had her pills after dinner, then I put them away so she won't take extra. Sounds like she was trying to take an extra dose last night.
Have a wonderful day! And those of you who are sick, wishing you some hot tea and comfort.
Annie in Delaware
Im hoping you none of you were in the line of any of the tornadoes that tore through the southeast last night..and that everyone is safe xoxo..
Im a bit nervous as i have to drive in rain and wind to my appointment this afternoon.5
Pip- I remember that porch pic of Kirby! It's my favorite too. Feel free to post it as often as you like, as I feel it does us all a LOT of good. I have decided that Kirby will make my gratitude list today; you will also make the list due to your willingness to share his loveliness (inside and out) with us. Thankful for Pip and Kirby in Michigan KJ (Kelly)3
Annie - Your vigilance is saving your mom's life over and over again. So glad you're there for her, and glad your shoulder's improving quickly! That's because you're doing the weights. You will recover much faster from any minor injury because you've improved your muscle tone. (Sorry, ran a fitness center for a while, so I can get kind of lecture-ish.)
Pip - Isn't it fun to have that kind of scenery around (Kirby and Corey)? I embarrass Corey when I look at him too long, as well. I met him after I'd lost all the weight, and mentioned in passing once that he would never have looked at me when I was heavy. He told me I was wrong, that I wouldn't have looked at him. Smart man, he was right. We believe we're not worthy when we're overweight when in reality, we're the same person.
Allie and everyone under the weather - Take care of yourselves!
Debbie - Sorry about the diagnosis, hope they got it early and surgery is successful!
Machka - An involuntary nose job wasn't on your Christmas list, either I know. Hope it's highly successful and recovery is quick and painless.
Rebecca - So pleased that you're home. My life post-gall-bladder-removal was so much easier, too, and recovery was super quick.
Slept nine hours last night! It only took me 62 years to learn to sleep. Sometimes I'm slow...
My last gratitudes, now that November is ending:
25-moment this week: That "aha" moment when learning a program again (WordPress) and I finally broke through the fog.
26-form of expression: Writing. Always. Forever.
27-small thing I use daily: My bluetooth earpiece, so I can stick my phone in my pocket and wander around the house while talking to my friends and family. All but the noisy chores (vacuuming) are done while gabbing.
28-small thing that happened today: Corey's "good morning" phone call.
29-friend/family I am grateful for today: No way for love to choose between them... I'm just grateful.
30-talent/skill I have: Writing. I may not always believe in my own ability, but it always believes in me.
Over here being a hermit in Arkansas to avoid the flu people, and yes, I've had the vaccine, but still...

Rebecca Celebrating that the diseased gallbladder is up outta you & you are home in fine fettle. Yay!
Woke up grateful for my attitude change toward my spouse. I don't know what got into me, but whatever it was is gone thanks to being able to vent here. It was like magic. Thank you all for being my therapeutic audience, friends.
My peace of mind allowed me to go back to sleep for several hours, something my sleep-deprived body appreciates so much. I am sitting here with my weighted blanket on my lap, starting my day with all of you. On the agenda for today: prepare the LR to be the staging area for our move. On a smaller scale, this has worked well for the prior 2 mini-moves done for our son's items and for my brother to move into his apartment.
Mary, It just occurred to me that a weighted blanket might help your husband's foot shuffling while watching TV. Draped over his lap/legs, I think it would definitely reduce the involuntary movements. I got my weighted blanket through my Buy Nothing group after I saw how much the one I bought my grandson helped his sleep. They come in various weights and he might need you to do the heavy lifting. It's just a thought.
We have a busy day; I am taking my spouse to the dentist and then over to our new apartment to do some puttering around while she meets with her personal trainer over there in their little gym.
Since I slept late, I now need to get into high gear since we will be leaving for the dentist in about an hour and I have much to do before we go.
Appreciate so much the pictures of Pip and Kirby. so much love

Rebecca — Congrats on getting rid of your gallbladder! I waved goodbye to mine long ago. I had one enormous gallstone & I was happy to wave goodbye. I hope you have an easy recovery.0
I've given in and put the heat on an hour early. DH still out. I had a good nap - out cold. It was a struggle to get up, but I did and hung up the laundry in the utility room. Now I have a cup of tea and am enjoying hearing the boiler running and the house creaking back into warmth.
I'm fed up with nothing but the World Cup on TV.

Barbara - I think we would need a whole herd of goats!!! And herders. But it's a great idea.

People rent out their goats here for weed/brush abatement in the canyons. We've considered renting one.

in the part of CA that I am in there are sidewalks in front of all the houses, and while they are on your property and as the property owner you are required to maintain them (weed them, cut back shrubs) the city maintains them if they break, become uneven... So each of us make our own decisions on maintaining I weed them when it is wet enough to be able to pull the weeds, if it is too hot and dry I use a string trimmer to keep things under control. If someone were to trip over the weeds in the sidewalk they could sue you in court. I don't know how that would work out, but certainly it would be a hassle. I like to have access to my neighbors sidewalks and be able to walk without walking in the street. Therefore I maintain the piece of sidewalk across the front of my property.
I think the situation as you describe could become quite the tripping hazard.
I have four fabric storage cubes coming today from Amazon. So it's a good day to follow your excellent examples and clean out the piles in my room. Except for the books, I want those! They spark joy!
I think I need to rearrange and declutter enough to fit in a new bookcase. It will be a challenge! But I don't have to do it all today.
I also want to put together a pot roast for my parents, and pay some bills. And maybe do 30 mins walking again. Time to get up and get going!
Lisa - thanks, that's encouraging!

Yes Katla, the doctor said mine was huge too! He had to pull the gallbladder out, get stone out ,then he was able to pull gallbladder out. He said the incision (its under my rib cage) had to be made a wee bigger, but its not big to me. Of course, I can't wear my bra because it hits right on the incision.😬🙄
Thanks ladies for all the well wishes, and positive thoughts! You really all helped me thru it! Yesterday morning feeling so nervous, I read them all, and you gave me strength!
I appreciate each and every one of you!
A cartoon I saw years ago showed a boy falling down and hurting himself far from home then running many blocks home. As soon he saw his mother, he began to wail and cry. That describes Jake. He can sit at the computer for hours alone quietly and as soon as he sees me or sits by me to watch TV, he begins groaning and moaning and commenting on how much his arthritic hand hurts. He has been on the phone with a friend for thirty minutes without a single grunt or mention of his pain but before the call he interrupted our conversation several times to lament in one way or another about his hand.
I’m going to start the gratitude list tomorrow!2
24. challenge. I am grateful for the challenges I face every day. They make me stronger.
25. moment this week. All the contact from family and friends for Thanksgiving. Could see everyone, but heard from everyone!
26. form of expression. Writing. I express myself better writing than speaking.
27. daily use item. My coffee cup and my iPhone, can’t decide on one! Lol
28. what happen today. Went for my daily walk around the park and NO MUD!
29. friend/family member. The women on this thread!
30. talent or skill: teaching

Rebecca--Glad you are home resting. Take things slow and easy.
Katla--I pray they can work it out and get you moved to where your DH is. That would be great for both of you.
This cold is kicking my ****. I laid day last evening about 7pm and was out most the night. I did wake up a couple times coughing. Keep thinking it will be done soon.
