Palady you are right it is a full time job being unhealthy, its a fulltime job going to the dr. I knew I forgot someone on the list and its the ortho next Wed to look at my arm. In between all of this dr business I will be picking up the Texas Tornado from school a couple of afternoons too.
I am beginning to get a little overwhelmed as the only decorating that has been done is the upstairs bathroom. No tree done yet nothing. No baking done, nada. I am going back and forth on the tree do I put it up or say the hell with it this year. I think I am stressing out somewhat. I got out there this afternoon and cleaned on the pool some more, I have to keep it leaf free regardless.
Its in the 30's here daytime and I am not use to the cold at all. We have had hard freezes so the banana trees have to be cut down and hauled to the curb on the first Monday of the month for pick up. The trees look awful now and will become very messy and end up everywhere. I have a big machete looking knife I use to whack them down.
I cannot imagine a foot of snow. Gawd talk about becoming a hermit I am sure you do with such low temps. But, I have to admit if it snows I am out there in with the kids. But, I grew up where there was snow and when you don't see much it is a treat for us Texans. I am sure it is best I do not live where you have to stay inside during the winter because I would go nuts being cooped up. I have to stay up & moving around or I am real nervous. I have always been a little on the high strung side. If I sit long I get so stiff that its not even funny. I have got to the point of standing at my counter and eating because sitting is such a problem. I do stand more a day than sit or lay, that is strictly due to stiffness. I take Mobic and I am not sure just how much it helps.
You may have hit on something here with the right side. Lets face it, something weird is going on with the right side of my body. The psoriasis is on the right side of my face only, right side at the hairline, right arm & elbow and of course the right hand and foot. It is really strange. My right foot swells much more than the let, I have gone up a half size bigger mainly for the extra width. The left shoe flops somewhat if its not a tie on.
I looked at my papers and had it in my head the Bone Scan was tomorrow but in fact it is Monday. I am not real thrilled because I have to be there at 8:00 for the injection and then go back at 11:00 for the scan. That is putting me right in the middle of rush hour and thats not good.
Yesterday I went thru the downtown area and by my old office of 18 yrs. It is still standing, but they have built all of these high dollar apts all around it. the old gal that bought the bldg held out and would not sell the land. it really looks so out of place. I bet by now she wishes she had taken the money because the way they built the apts they do not neeed that little patch now. lol. They have really dropped the dough trying to bring people back to the downtown area, but the rent down there is out of sight. The apts and condos are very elegant, they are not for your average person or family. The people in this town with the big bucks want the fancy high dollar homes on the west side by the country club, they do not want in downtown. So, it will be interesting to see how it all pans out. I do like to go down there at night with all of the Christmas lights going, it is so pretty.
Oh well, got off track here as usual. thanks to all that replied.
