Hey Fam's & Peep's!
It's your long lost beaten down sore traveling brother Pete here checking in! Bless me Father for it has been at least one month since my last post! Some of you may know about my adventures in moving 25 years of crap out of the house my family lived and grew up in and trying to figure out what to do w/ all this stuff after bringing it 250 miles away to our new smaller home. I've been down there every week for a month now and still have loads to do before our new renter moves in on the 27th of this month> YIKES!!! Somehow we have to get it done. My wife is taking off weds, thurs, and fri. of this week to come down and help me and hopefully these painter dudes I'm hiring from my old company will get the paining done either this or next week.
Now for the good news! I haven't had time to fire my pain doc after all the crap she's put me through (gave me a new pain pill script last apt. that almost killed me then would not return my calls about it>> Beotch!!) but had an apt. w/ her this week and she told me she's leaving for greener pastures up in Gainsville, too far for me to go!!! Good riddens!!! So a replacement doc will be there for my next apt. How easy was that? I'm just going to keep my fingers crossed that this one will be good!!!> fourth pain doc in less than a year!! Long story!!
It's getting light and I have chores to get done before the heat settles in> heat index of 105~112 every day this past week!>> Yuk, so I'm headed out to the pasture to pick up horse poop and hopefully cut some grass (It's growing 2"~4" a day I swear!) before it rains> rains everyday!!! Just thought I'd check in and let Y'all know I'm still alive and kickin (in pain mostly!)
Love to all!!! Hope everyone has a supper low pain day today!!!!
Your Bro,
When I was young & stupid I broke almost every bone in my body and I'm paying a heavy price now but I'm still here and so glad to see my two sons grow up to be fine young men, both are in the Navy. I'm so proud! My biggest health problem>> I'm a certified Luny~Tune!!

What a nice way to rid yourself of a bad dr! Sometimes the Lord works in mysterious ways.

Best of luck on the moving Pete!

So great to hear from you brother pete. I am sure you are looking forward to the end of this moving job. I hope then, you will have some time to rest and smell the roses, if you know what I mean. That has to be a tough job on your back. I don't know how you can manage all this but I would say you are one strong and courageous man.
I look forward to hearing about more fishing expeditions you will be able to take and seeing some pics and videos. I love those and show them all to my hubby. I hope to get a pkg to you in the near future with some of the fish batters I talked to you about that we have here in Canada.
Please take care my friend and be well and happy.

   Hello Pete! WOW! Sounds like you have a plenty on your plate. If I was closer, you would have a helper for sure!
Pace yourself as best you can. It isn't always that easy when your under a time constraint like this though.
Soon the monkley will be off you're back on this task, and you can concentrate on better things.
We all hope this next PM Dr will deliver the goods for you. I can tell it has been very frustrating for you there.

Thanks so much everyone for your caring words and encouragement!!! It was cloudy and rained a little when I was out before picking up the poop and putting it in my little tractor trailer, much better than working in the sun!!!! I then went over to my poor neglected garden, how sad! My tomato plants caught some kind of blight and are all dying from the bottom up. I bought some spray that was supposed to take care of 60 different fungus & blight but it didn't work> 8 bucks down the drain! There are some tomatos turning red but most are still green and a lot have sores on them from the blight!! If I had only been here and caught it when it started maybe they would have been OK but I wasn't. At least there are plenty of cukes but how many cukes can one eat? I've been making half done pickles which are yummy but again, how many pickles can anyone eat? I love tomatos and could eat them all day long but I've failed as a gardener my first time! Well, there's always next year right?
So thanks again for all your support! It's a rainy day here today and I think I'm gonna take everyones advice and take the rest of the day off! Maybe drink some coffee and watch a fishing show on TV or maybe an old movie and eat some pickles!! I'm so tired of being soaking wet all the time!! Either from sweat or rain, kinda like my tomatos, I think thats what happened to them> being wet all the tuime!!!
Love Ya>

I hope you are resting now for the day - you deserve it!! You've had so much going.... I don't know how you do it, honestly - you are an amazingly hard worker. I admire that quality very much!

So glad to hear that awful PM doc is leaving... you don't need a doctor like that. Prayers that this next one will be a good one!

I can't believe how hot it is out your way!! Too hot for me, I don't think I'd make it...honestly. OR at least I wouldn't be able to go outside! It's been a particularly cool summer here in California; I say it's because God knew I couldn't handle the heat this summer, in particular!

Hugs to you; glad to see you posting! :) --Tina

Pete, go ahead and vent. Let it out. Allow it to roll like thunder. At least you did something besides lift the remote to turn on a soap opera to deserve the pain. You, like a few others of us, maybe not the sane ones anyway, are able to push past the pain, block it out while it  calls you names that insult but you don't let it hinder you from the task at hand. You know the job is not going to get done playing patty cake and you sacrifice to get it done. Now we can assess the best physical practice, or have a $100 an hour shrink tell us we are insane but we already know that. And then we can talk about the thought process of being beyond the limit we ever wanted to be in pain and still look ahead at how we are going to do it again. Why? The job needs done and we still need to have sense of value and for some of us that means doing things. We must prove that life goes on in spite of the pain. You should also find at least a short period of time to rest and allow the total insatity of all this set in. Then you will be ready to do it again. Keep safe. Blessings!
