Bless this House

I did my good mother deed today. Kara and Al closed on the house without a hitch yesterday. This morning I met them there and brought cleaning supplies. I had said that I would wash out the kitchen cabinets for them and brought a bucket, Spic N Span, rags and an extension duster. It took two hours and I must say that I did a fine job. They will be able to put their stuff in without any squeamishness. Somehow other people’s dust bunnies are so much more icky than one’s own(I read that our dead skin cells make up most of the dust in one’s house so I guess that makes sense.) While I washed Kara took the duster thoughout the three floors of the house and.then started on the refrigerator. Meanwhile Al went for stepstools and brought us lunch. The movers are coming on Monday and I suggested that they shampoo the carpets(on 2nd and third floors) today so all will be ready. My leg is feeling only slightly painful and then mostly if I am putting weight on it…like walking down stairs ,,,OUCH.See you all Thursday.

Sad Sack

so here is the story. Tuesday at 11:00 I slipped on the ice while carrying a heavy box and severely pulled my left hamstring. The pain was so severe(9 on a scale of 10)  that it dropped me to the ground. I dragged myself along the ground towards the door of the house. After three hours of RICE and popping a pain killer I was feeling no better. I was told by the doctor’s office staff to go to the emergency room. Xrays showed no broken bones so I was sent on my way with a set of crutches that I am still in way too much pain to use(because the weight of the leg pulls on the leg muscle).  So per doctor’s orders I have been doping myself with meds and staying off my feet. I have no problem with staying off my feet because it still hurts like all getout whenever I stand up. I sent my cleaning helper out to the shed to retrieve my mom’s old wheelchair and have been getting around with that. Before that I was using Bill’s office chair. I felt so rotten that until Saturday I hadn’t the energy to put on fresh clothing. I now feel ok when laying on the couch with my leg propped up with a warm heating pad. The doctor said my recuperation is likely to be a few months in duration. I have an appointment on Thursday with my PCP. Sorry I missed the details about the weddingand the engagement but I am here if anyone wants to stop by.

No CC this Thursday

Had a call from Susan - she slipped on the ice and pulled a hamstring muscle, went to ER - now on crutches and pain meds and feeling crappy.  If she is well enough by next Thursday the 17th to have CC, she will let us know.

It Was Lovely

The wedding was lovely - although not exactly what I would have planned but then I had my chance 35 years ago!  There were a few lessons learned to remember for the next wedding…

Dave’s brother was delayed in arriving.  He was supposed to go with his family on Sunday, December 30th but his Dad developed dementia overnight - another story… so Alan flew in late Thursday night.

When we got home this past Monday afternoon we moved the furniture out of his independent living because Bob was moved to skilled nursing while we were gone.
