    Back from overnight trip. No problems with MRI. They have changed things up a bit since last one I had-they have a mirror in top so you can see the window the tech is behind and some light so not nearly as claustrophobic. Test only took about 20 minutes so not so bad. Results not posted yet.

    Had good dinner with friend-we went to an Asian Bistro. Visited for a couple of hours. Then went to pub at hotel and visited with work colleagues. On the whole a good day. Did not sleep well at hotel so I see early bedtime in my future tonight.

    Surgery scheduled for pelvic floor/suspension, whatever they call it, for October 5. Need to get stuff in order here for that. Will have a couple of busy weekends, but will be productive.

    Had large lunch at meeting today so not feeling hungry for dinner. I have had some pickled Brussel sprouts and a jello. May have a bit of something else light.

    Saddened by the passing of Queen Elizabeth. I was born in 1954-I have never known a world without Queen Elizabeth. I know the monarchy is controversial, but I admired her as a woman who tried to make a difference but still respect tradition.

    Going to go unpack suitcase and do a couple of small things so I don't fall asleep quite this early!

    Take care all,

    Worked then cut the grass. Bought gas for the mower, now home to have dinner. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow so I just may go to the gym. I’ll go for my walk tonight

    Carla – I question if ANYONE can be as great a monarch as Elizabeth was

    SuebDew – feel better fast

    Ginny – good thoughts for your surgery. I was born in 55 so I haven’t know anyone other than Queen Elizabeth

    Barb, you can learn a lot from just reading Dana's blog posts at aslobcomesclean.com. She has youtube videos, too. some people find them helpful. I love her, but she does tend to ramble. If I was new to her, I might like the youtube videos, but I find them too long. She has one where she goes through her five step decluttering process with her husband to help him straighten up his office that is supposed to be pretty good.

    Actually, the audio books might be kind of cool. You could listen and clean at the same time.

    That's one of my issues with these things ... if I spent time listening to them or watching them, I would lose time to actually do the job.

    I've liked/followed several on Facebook (and have unfollowed the ones I don't like). There, they'll post 5 quick tips to deal with something, and that I don't mind because I can read it on the bus.

    Here, there are a number of professional organisers who will come to your house ... but they'll just tell you what needs to be done. Most won't get in there and help you do it!! I know what needs to be done. I need someone to work with me!

    I did find one who posts tips and interesting things on FB, and might come out and help: https://de-clutter.com.au/

    No caretaker here today and it was a long day. I try to appreciate every moment with my husband but the nursing tasks are very mundane to me. I found a new ALS support group on line that I am going to try. They will meet again in October. One problem is that ALS patients are in such different stages and so one doesn't want to discourage caretakers that are in the early stages helping someone by venting and moaning and groaning about the later stages. We do join in on the virtual GA Association ALS support group. We watched a Ken Burns documentary about Genes and I recently read The Codebreaker about genes. Very fascinating what will be done with them in the future. Scary as well.

    That's one of the issues with brain injury too. Every brain injury is unique and there are so many different levels of brain injury.

    My husband's brain injury is classified as "severe", but because some of his brain is unaffected, he can still do things ... like math, for example. His math brain cells are intact.

    Our association has meetings for everyone with brain injury which can be quite chaotic, and even when they choose themes, some of the themes are interesting but some don't apply to us. We've stopped going to the meetings for the time being because they haven't really appealed lately.

    It can be difficult.

    Last evening, I read many chapters in my book.

    Today, there was much sleeping ...

    And then a walk and a visit to a flower show where I got my husband a dark slate hellibore.


    In the photo above, that's a rhododendron.

    I've been so enjoying wielding my telescopic fluffy duster. One room at a time. It gets right behind and above things and I love to see it gathering dust and fluff. :p
    Little things please little minds. :)

    I've also been slowly cleaning the oven glass door. Not been done since we moved in nearly four years ago. Baked on grease. I'm now down to the last few, stubborn spots. Trying to do it without harsh chemicals so I have been researching on line. It looks as if the very last bits are coming off with a dampened dishwasher tablet. :D

    Love Heather UK xxxxxxxx in a cleaning frenzy

    Very sad news about the Queen's passing. What an amazing woman she was, working to the end, welcoming the new prime minister only days before.

    She will be a hard act for King Charles to follow.

    still catching up.

    Take care and love to all

    I can't help but feel a little sorry for King Charles III, although it looks as if he is off to a very good start.
