Things I have to do:

* basic chores - make bed, stay on top of dishes, do some tidying, 5 minutes gardening, shower and wash hair
* inject Humira
* exercise
* wear my special insoles for a few hours
* devotions
* other meds

Things I want to do:
* walk down street, return library books, pay bill, grab a few groceries
* keep putting things away, 20 things at a time, until the house is TIDY
* vacuum / mop some floors
* do some more ironing - I'm still behind and trying to catch up
* do a bit more towards making pjs
* read the newspaper

Bonus points:
* ring someone and chat
* sew on button
* do a fridge dive and make sure there's nothing getting old or mouldy in there

Im really late pacting today:
I woke up this morning with my infected foot in excrutiating pain, was the first person at the Drs. surgery this morning. I have had swabs taken of the sore - OUCH - and she is seeing if it is MRSA now. I just want to chop it off - good grief enough already.
So all I am doing is laying around with my foot elevated and trying not to scream :(. Ok pity party over.
Hope everyone else is going to have a better day
April, I hope you are in better spirits today :)

Oh, Jo! That's awful. You're having rotten luck this year. I really sympathise - it must hurt so much. Did the doc give you any effective pain relief?

I really am sorry. It's just awful. I hope you were able to get through today.

My 5pm update - made the bed, done a LOT of tidying, done the dishes, sewn on the button, washed my hair. Done the library, the bill and the small grocery shop, but I didn't walk there - I caught a taxi instead, and I'm *still* exhausted. I haven't done half of what I pacted, but I think I'm just going to crash with a movie tonight, anyway.


I hope tomorrow is better for you, Jo.

Jo!! MRSA is nothing to joke about. My mother got this on her rear when she was in the hospital on life support. She survived :) but that "stuff" ate a hole all the way to the bone the size of a softball. I jokingly call her half-ass (our family has kind of a warped sense of humor). Please take this seriously, wash your hands after messing with it, keep it covered so as not to further infect and also not to spread. Your doc gave you potent hospital-strength antibiotics, right??

{{Thursday?}} Geez, Louise, I don't even know what day of the week it is. Ended up working another 11 hour day yesterday.

Today Must-Do:
**New GI appointment. This is mostly so that I have someone to oversee any hospital stays, ER visits, etc... but we will see what he has to say.

Too Beat to commit to anything other than the above.

Come on weekend... I am about out of clean clothes!
