Just wanted to update my dear friends on HW concerning how things are going. I know I'm not posting like I used to and a lot of it is because I have been so busy with things ( dr. appts., Psych appts., and such) I just haven't had much time for anything these days. Anyway, the siatic pain has increased due to my knee pain (of course what else would it do?) and my back pain is out of control because of the same thing. I don't know what I did to my knee byt, its driving me crazy. I have been trying to get on the treadmill at least once a day and am doing at least 5 min. Sleeping is still a joke and I think my husband is getting to his last straw with my non-sleeping habits.
I got sick of looking at my filty home today and headed in the kitchen to sweep and mop the floor. Well....this was the wrong thing to attempt, though I did get the sweeping done before my knee, siatica and back went totally off the charts! Don't think I will be attempting that any longer and I'm thinking about finding someone to hire to do simple tasks around the house so that hubby doesn't have to come home after 9 hours at work and clean the house. Of course.....I can't afford to pay much, but we shall see what comes out of that.
Still haven't heard from disability. It's now in tenn I think being looked at by a special commity that deals with SS beni's. So still waiting on that to happen. I'm not hoding my breath either LOL! It's about this time that the house gets a good going through and the Christmas boxes are brought up so that I can see what needs replaced and begin the ardious task of putting out the lighted deer, lights,wreath and lighted garland before it gets too cold to put them up. They don't get plugged in until Dec 1st but, at least they are up and done before the weather turns for the worse.
Too, the cabnets are cleaned off so that all my christmas pretties can be placed. I have this awesome village that is so gorgous as well as all my christmas bears. I go all out decorating as you can see. But....presents are going to be really slim this year so I gotta come up with something I can make hubby. I have some Steelers material for a blanket so I think I will get it done.
Anyway, that's about what is going on here in lower eastern Kansas. The weather has been up and down which has given me a head cold from the depths of heck! UGGGGGG, does anything clear so that I can see the sun?
Hugggs to all!
P.S. Oh I forgot to mention that once again we (hubby and I) will be headed for his mom's for Thanksgiving. Only time I really enjoy the company. :-(
What doesn't kill us only makes us fight back harder! :P
