Is it Friday already? This week flew by. I am....
CREEPED OUT-by creepy Arnold and his creepy treatment of his wife and kids. Yes, I'm judging and I don't even feel guilty about it.
CONFUSED- by my new camera. Mr Sunshine State got me a Nikon Coolpix for Mother's Day. I dropped my old camera, lens side down, with the zoom lens completely open. It was going to cost a small fortune to get it fixed. I have RTFM but still don't have a clear understanding of all the settings. So far 9 out of every 10 pictures are blurry. I'm not giving up...I'm going to RTFM again and keep practicing.
RELIEVED-Mom is 7 weeks out of back surgery and she seems to have turned a corner in her recovery. She has been cleared to drive, all the post-op infections have healed, she is progressing in physical therapy and she sounds better than she has in over a year.
TIRED- Back in December I quit all the heavy duty Fibromyalgia drugs I was on. They were super $$$$ and I spent all my days feeling like I was walking through quicksand. I slept deeply on the meds, but it was more like being comatose and my head was foggy all day. Now I feel more alert and energetic during the day but I can't seem to string together 2 nights of restful sleep.
Most nights, from midnight to 4am I wake up every 20-30 minutes. From 4am to 9am, I sleep like a rock, but by the time I read the paper and eat breakfast and make the bed and get dressed, it is 11am and I feel like half the day has been shot to hell. The doctor's office is playing around with other meds. I wish I could take a couple of Tylenol PM, but with all my arthritis meds and diabetes meds, it is not a good idea to take Tylenol or Ibuprofen and I am allergic to Excedrin. At least I am non-employed and can take a nap every afternoon!
