    Topsy Tuesday post - may contain triggers

    Good afternoon my friends!

    Where the heck is everyone?

    I called this "Topsy Tuesday" because the holiday throws off my schedule.....oh, who am I kidding, I usually don't know the day of the week until I read the paper or look at a calendar.

    Sleep: Good, I've been using my Ambien to get to bed earlier. I only woke up once, which is a huge improvement.

    Mood: Depends. If I look at the work facing me to get things packed up so they can paint my bedroom and the bedroom the computer (and anything else I wanted close at hand) is kept. If I want to escape reality, I turn away and watch TV. Today my back pain is allowing me to check my email and log in here.

    Plans: Get as much done as I can.

    My husband and I are a fine pair. With my problems with my lower back (I'm seeing the surgeon again tomorrow) and my husband's neuropathy in his left arm and hand, we barely function as one. My husband can't use his left hand and he is left handed. When will this comedy end?

    Hugs to all,

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

    Hello Dahlings

    Weather: hot

    Sleep: very good but Im still exhausted.

    Mood: not sure. Lyrica has just kicked in and its making my brain very very fuzzy right now. I hate it when it does that.

    Plans: First thing I did was call a company who's product damaged a piece of our furniture. They sent us a letter that was to be signed and if I signed it, then they would send me a check for $100. BUT, their letter claims that their product would not have caused any kind of damage and further more in signing the letter, Me and my heirs can not ever hold their company liable for any damage caused by any of their products at any time. I refused to sign such a ridiculous letter. So they are going to change the terms and rewrite the letter. *sigh*.

    Also Im still in a lot of pain today, so I wont be on the board much.

    You all have a fabulous day. muahs

    Good evening all - Wolf, I enjoyed reading post. I hope you enjoyed your time at the library.

    Weather: Dark but hot summer cooling down a smidge

    Sleep: Good

    Mood: Good

    Plans: Worked, bought groceries, had dinner, write a post then yoga — should be to bed by 11:00. Ah — ha! Dh has a pill box and he only puts 2 pills inside instead of the 4 he's really taking in comparison to my 5 pills per day. I'm no more of a pill popper than he is. Now our pill boxes sit side-by-side. Takes one to know one LOL
