Things I have to do:
* basics - make bed, stay on top of dishes, do some tidying, 15 minutes gardening.
* exercise
* devotions
* meds
* medicate my cat

Try to:
* tidy my bedroom
* dust my bedroom
* write some more letter
* do paperwork

Bonus:
* ring someone and chat
* walk to letterbox and post votes & bills (may not happen, as arthritis is still bad)

And try to keep chipping away at this week's wish-list, which is still getting shorter turn
* laundry x 3 (done 2 already)
* dusting (have done a few rooms; have a few more to go)
* clean bathroom and toilet
* floors (have done half of them; have a few more to do)
* wash cat's litter tray
* wash draining board etc
* get back patio looking respectable again,
* repot plants on back patio / clear away the dead annuals
* write two letters (I owe dozens)
* cut out pjs

Bonus:
* tidy my mother's bedroom - a HARD job.

Good luck to us all. Jo, I heard the weather was revolting there yesterday - hope it's cooler there now. (It is here, yay, **and** it rained yeah turn )

Pacting today is 8 hour shift at work, so that will be all I will manage - and I hope I manage that!
Ivy - yesterday was horrible - 35+, today it's raining here too and much cooler :) Sorry your arthritis is active - I feel if it's not one thing its another :( Whats wrong with your cat that it needs medicine?
Anyway just popping in before my midday start.
Have a good weekend everyone

The cat is on medication because she has blood in her urine... and she does not appreciate having to take tablets!!

I've just dispached another stray cat to the RSPCA, thanks to a friendly neighbour who's going to drive it there, seeing as I can't. This one has a broken bone (I think) sticking out of its stomach - why do people adopt cats if they won't look after them?

Good luck with the eight hour shift. Wow, that's a long one.

Jo, when your AS flares, does your back hurt, or does everything ache?

Off I go to shower *sigh*

Oh poor cat :(, can understand the tablet thing! A few weeks back we had a mother cat stray in the carpark at work, after she had kittens, work hired traps to catch her and kittens, worked like a charm and between staff and customers they all found good homes. Some people dont deserve animals, whats even scarier is they have children too!
My AS flares in my hips, spine, leg and sometimes feet, usually it's hip and lower back for me - hope that helps, Im not very good at describing my ailments other than saying it hurts :)

Jo, I'm the same. Pain is pain - ouch :-) Thanks for telling me - I always thought AS was the back only, but now I know better.

The neighbour is back from the RSPCA. She says that they're worried now, considering that this is the second neglected cat that's come to this house in a matter of months, and is going to investigate this area, because *someone* is not caring for their animals. The sad thing is that, with the broken rib, they may have to put it down :-(

Good that those kittens found good homes!

Hope work goes well.

Ivy, showered.

Hope they find the culprit neglecting their animals, poor things dont deserve to suffer. Hope your arthritis eases for you today Ivy.
Jo - better get a move on or I will be late

Pacting is for those of us who are feeling restricted or overwhelmed by our illness, or by depression associated with our illness, or by lack of energy, or whatever. Basically, we pact to get up, to get out, to talk to people, to keep moving, to exercise, to keep trying: basically, anything that might get us through the day and help create a healthier lifestyle.

Quite often we come back throughout the day to update people on how we're going. We cheer each other on and try to stay motivated. You're welcome to join us if you like!

thanks! appreciate it! i love this forum. unfortunately visiting becomes less of a priority when i'm feeling better, but it's always comforting to be able to jump on and "talk" with all of you!!!!
