    Hello my Beeper Dahlings

    Weather: too freaking cold

    Sleep: good but I'm still very tired

    Mood: good

    Plans: do the dishes. Relax in bed because my LSC pain is really bothering me today. ggggggrrrrrrr. Tired of it. Tonight is movie night so me and the hubby will be watching a movie and eating lots of chocolate. I used to dislike chocolate but for some reason I have been craving it.

    You all have a fabulous weekend. muahs

    Good morning, Cookie! I'm so sorry that you still have that darn LSC pain! I take it the recent treatment didn't work, or will it take a lil while before it takes effect? I just hope that some day SOON, someone will be able to figure out exactly what you need to take the pain away!! I'm so sorry! {{{{{{{{{{{{{{Cookie}}}}}}}}}}}}

    Weather - cold, but blue sky and sunny! Love it!

    Sleep - good, but not enough

    Mood - Ok

    Plans - do laundry, neighbor taking me to costco tonight; spend the night at my sisters tonight and tomorrow, we are going to work on cleaning her carpet - I have a new way of cleaning both lenolium and carpet that's amazing! Well, it works wonders on the lenolium, but will try it on the carpet! Because I love to clean, I can't WAIT to try it. lol I just may be up in the middle of the night, testing it to see if it works while my sister is sleeping. lol I will come home tomorrow afternoon - my sister is going to make me a glass mosaic, so we are going to go over what kind of design/picture that I want. She does such fantastic work! You see, when we were standing in the artistic gene line, I very graciously gave mine to her and her sons. As a result, I can't even draw stick people very well. lol Not sure what I will be doing the rest of my day; but I know that I have some things on my "to do" list that I need to get to.

    Onward and upward!

    Hi guys. Just another day in Paradise, as the old Phil Collins song goes. Lately been listening to old music. Driving hubby crazy. Fun, fun, fun.

    Weather: Blue skies, few cirrus clouds, and WARM temps. Supposed to get up to 70 today. Yea!!!!

    Sleep: So-so. Fell asleep watching tv, not good for the contacts. Woke up late, still kinda tired.

    Mood: So-so. Can't really say.

    Plans: If I can get motivated to take a shower, want to go for a walk around the complex and maybe get the mail. Don't know. Wrist and elbow really HURT today. So probably won't be on much after this. Have a great day and a wonderful week-end my friends. Hugs.

    Debbie Doodles Dahling, the pain specialist said it will take up to 6 weeks for me to feel any pain relief. So I will give it two months and if my pain isn't any better then I will go back to them to see what else they can do. Thanks so much for your well wishes and support. Also thanks for the hugs. muahs

    Wow re up to 6 weeks! Well I hope that it's not that long, but even if it is 6 weeks, I hope that it ultimately helps for good!!

    Hello all and happy later afternoon...

    our weather is cool, sunny yet breezy this day

    sleep was a little off and on but its always goods at the end when i'm supposed to get up unfortunately

    mood: frustrated

    plans: well i had many but missed out on most...so had to reschedule, but still have to take my son to see his teacher before 2, clean ths house which i clean every day and everyone else makes messes, leaves their crap everywhere but i'm the one that gets all the crap about it...

    i finally called in to my insurance to change my pcp...i'm hoping i made a good choice, it's all always so random, but i picked a female doc because my last dr i am very dissatisfied with and had grown very uncomfortable around him ever since my last check-up...it was really weird......and that's gotta be a bad thing with a Dr that's supposed to treat and examine you....

    so...la di da, my day is just gonna be filled with the awesomeness of cleaning and cooking and then watching as everyone goes and leaves their mess everywhere, its fantastic really

    there were a bunch of other things i wanted/needed to do but i can't for the life of me remember what any of it was/is

    Michelle, good luck on teh PCP you selected! I'm in that process as well. Cathe gave me a few names, and I narrowed it down to 4 names, and then she just emailed me back and narrowed it down to 2 names, and then I just emailed her back and said that because I am THE most indecisive person EVER, SHE has to decide for me! lol She told me either of the two would be great, but I can't decide. I leaned toward one of them (both women) but I have no real reason for it. BOth she and th eother happened to have a little 1 min clip of introducing themselves, so my "leaning toward" is based ONLY on their voices, what they said, and their demeanor. lol Does that count for anything? lol I think now I should just put their names in a hat and pull one out, and whatever one I pull is it! lol

    Again, I hope that the doctor you chose turns out to be one that you really like AND is really good!

    Hugs

    Weather: Warm, short sleeve weather. Yay!! We've actually been outside today which is awesome around these parts for Jan.

    Sleep: Like a logged...enjoying being drugged still

    Mood: Good

    Plans: It's Friday so other than some minor schooling, its been a free for all day. I've played with the kids, picked up and cleaned (I TOTALLY feel you on that Sky...it just doesn't end) my now again messy house, and tonight I'm going to dinner with a friend.

    I hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Hello everyone.

    Weather: Temps in the low 50's but rain. Ouch.

    Sleep: Only about 3 hours. Chronic pain levels elevated due to the weather. Plus new hip pain that I think is bursitis. Ouch. Sorry about your pain, Cookie. I saw your post on the back board but like Joy there have never heard of that procedure.

    Mood: Not bad, but a little crabby due to weather, pain and lack of sleep. Ask my wonderful wife. She will agree.

    Plans: Went with my wife to do some errands. We got very hungry so had a late lunch at a local salad/pizza bar called Tony Pepperoni's. All the soup, salad, pizza (8 different types), macaroni, spaghetti, red sauce, cheese sauce, meatballs, chicken tenders, little sweet fried dough nuggets and cinnamon dessert pizza you can eat all for $6.25 each. We just drank water which is free. Such a deal.

    Have a blessed and fantastic Friday!
