  • @Avidkeo Here's DH's elbow. The images are all at different appointments, about a month apart. No healing and a screw in nothing (according to doc that fixed it the second time). This is first botched sx. All I can see is the loose bone and screw in nothing. He's sent it all to a lawyer. Elbow vs road at 50mph. How are you…
  • Hi all. I have been productive this week. No procrastinating, enjoying the course work and getting application materials to schools. Today I might have needed a break. DH pulled me away from work to go to a flea market, 6-8 vendors and I lost all focus and took a nap. We bought homemade chicken and jalapeño tamales. I am…
  • @quilteryoyo The CT; top is my posterior, bottom abdomen. Looking downwards in a cross-section at the back of my pelvis. The "broken" is a joint where the pelvis meets the spine (sacrum). you can see the needle in the joint... surprised cuz dr handsome's technique isnt as good as Dr cutie pie's haha! I was sweating to be…
  • @quilteryoyo I know you aren't an Apple user, but... We use the Apple Card and I can generate a new ccv randomly and/or change my card number on the app. Literally just a button and it assigns a new number to my numberless card. The actual card is titanium, chip and mag strip. I got so tired of fraud charges and decided…
  • Definitely went down the rabbit hole.
  • Sewing machine madness I found one that is what I wanted, the old black Singer in a desk for $150. Works and "fixed", new cord, pm'd motor... DH decided we'd go get it tomorrow if the seller is available. ya! but... Below you can see I am bidding on a auction... I have a bid in for one like the one we are getting tomorrow…
  • I have a bid in on an old singer in an estate auction for 30$ haha! Seems the deceased sewed and has a few. So it is probably in working order. I really just want something for minor repairs (Kevin) and washing throws every other day is hard on them. One belongs to Alex and I use it daily. I think something basic will be…
  • @quilteryoyo I am looking for a sewing machine. I keep finding antique singers online (FB) for about 125$ then dont get to them in time. I'd like an old one built in the table. Anyway, I am about to give up. You have any suggestions for a good sewing machine for the home?
  • @CMorning99 You could always do a few courses that are of interest. If it's paid for, why not? There's nothing wrong with cc, but I'd find a larger uni since they offer a larger variety of courses. 85-YR-OLD GRADUATES
  • @shanaber yes I'm ok. Been busy with course work, dogs, house, husband. I think allergies got me a bit too. Since starting the ADHD med Ive turned in a few assignments. They are easier to sit down and get done. All of it has been essays with the psych programme. 93 and above is an A. I struggle a bit there, I'd been a…
  • @Avidkeo Dr Lewis is very nice. If I get that far, I don't want dh's last name...🤔 Happy birthday to the 6 year old! Did you make a cake this year? I haven't noticed a new dashboard. I think it changed here a few months ago? I wanted to be an archaeologist, which would require a PhD. But I just wanted to dig in the dirt…
  • @shanaber Kevin and Sandy have become aware of the remote and associates it with the remote. That you could do. I've added high incentive treats when reinforcing behaviour, lunch meat, chicken, today is mini lemon cakes that DH brought home and no one NEEDS to eat. I use the collar on Maggie (buzz) and she just looks…
  • @shanaber How goes it with the collar? I have left it on K&S for 2 days now. The charge holds longer than I expected. I was taking it off to charge nightly but it took ~30 minutes to charge up. Then if the collar was off they'd push it and began to associate minding with the collar. I dont use the shock or the pins and set…
  • In this day and age, I can't or don't want to believe that women's health issues go ignored. DD told me today that she specifically asked our doc for a hepatitis test and he said "you're reaching". It was not ordered. She's has had the same complaints since dec 2020 and we are no where with it. Well, until last week. She…
  • I had family visit yesterday. I haven't seen my paternal aunt and her daughter who is 5 years older than I since 1978. I woke this morning quite angry, I am still angry. Why are people's brains so stupid and complicated? what is the purpose of being angry? I surmised that it just bought up feelings of abandonment as a kid.…
  • I'm missing @HonuNui and the ocean. I really want to do a girls vaca some day. Just lay on the beach and let the warm sand permeate my heartbroken soul... Immerse myself in the ocean and just be still watching the fishes.
  • @shanaber I bought these two on Amazon. It does have the shock function. I don't anticipate needing to use it. They seem too understand when the collar is on that they have to mind. All I have done is beep them and vibrate the collar. Sandy is more sensitive to the vibration and beep than Kev is. Kev is like "fine", Sandy…
  • @shanaber cute! I’ll have to look for the bees. I occasionally hide a treat in there to reinforce the find it game. Someday I’m going to sub it for scent work. Kevin shakes the trunk and the squirrels fly out. Why does Hobbes think the the window isn’t there? Or that he’s a cat? Beary did that for a bit trying to get…
  • @quilteryoyo Think these two like toys only when the other one has it. That dictates toy success. Right now we are on a frozen Kong kick to keep them busy. Kevin went to day care today. It was cute when I asked him this AM if he wanted to go. He cocked his head and gruffed and followed me around ensuring that I didnt…
  • @CMorning99 Hope the cat gets to feeling better soon. I wish I had some Ruffles. mmm. @shanaber Poor Hobbes. I hope the lumps are benign. Does Hobbes paw at the windows? I cant recall or missed the reason why. When my oldest was 1-3, we lived on the third floor and he'd get in the windows. I had to put baby gates in them.…
  • @shanaber @quilteryoyo thanks for the support. I never wanted to believe anyone taught their kids so little to hate. This particular guy seems "okay" mentally, not a danger. I've given to somewhat are out there. But it's not their fault. They still need to eat, drink, a place to sleep. Dallas has shelters that houses them…
  • @CMorning99 This is Sandy's first heat. She is 9.5 months old. It has been somewhat of a challenge, but also not big deal, if you just accept it. She has pooed in the washable diaper twice. I have 3 and I am constantly washing them. She is good to let me put them on and remove when she needs out. I ran the old dog to the…
  • Sandy came home 9 days early from training. She is in heat. She's been fine at home. It's early, but I dont see any signs of her acting oddly. She is humping Kevin and he does his gator move. It like sun salutation for doggies, lol! Then they get in an argument over it, "you dont like that do you Kev? Stay of MY bongo…
  • @shanaber sure. Send me all the dog entertainment stuff. Sandy is coming home a week early. Seems she is on the cusp of a heat cycle. I knew she wouldn't last a year haha! I'll spend time training them at home then send them both back for 2-3 weeks. I want the trainer to work with them together this time, so they don't…
  • @CMorning99 celexa is usually what most people are started on. It’s easy to get adjust to. I’ve been off and on it several times. It is just like @quilteryoyo described. You can get an online doc and do it all that way. 🤫
  • Why is it Kevin can't stay awake on the drive home from dog care, but is rambunctious the second we get home? I guess he had a good day. BARK! BARK! Maybe he wants me to nap with him. @shanaber & @quilteryoyo I dont know when the doc wants Eric to start rehabbing the elbow. He is trying to use it a little as tolerated. I…
  • @quilteryoyo I get the crunch chip addiction. I have chips on my no-no list because I cant eat them responsibly lol! We did cheese whisps for a while. That was somewhat calorie controlled by the bag. And I got where 4-5 of them would suffice. I still love crunchy stuff. I'd add a few to a plate of veggies that I liked,…
  • @quilteryoyo he cant straighten it yet, he's at maybe 50 degrees. I told him to expect a year of recovery based on your experience. Hang in there with the weight and try small changes. We have gotten so bad with high fat foods, lasagna, and pizza, that is difficult to enjoy low fat foods. Maybe try some healthier options…
  • @quilteryoyo Yes I can ask the trainer. I asked her various questions about every other day. We do have a follow up with her for an hour. I think that is after Sandy is trained. Dh's elbow is healing. The incision isn't closed yet and its been 4 weeks. Doc wasnt concerned. He mowed the yard yesterday, on the riding mower…
  • Violin recital was okay. I'll pass on sharing it. But will offer a cute video of Kevin and Taters playing. https://youtu.be/HFcdv4eQITY I have all of May to focus on violin, dogs, cats, & cleaning. Cori goes to the vet this AM. He hurt from fighting. I'll have to make him come in in the evenings. He's been good about…
