Outside my window. . Sunny, breezy and 73ยบ at 1458.

I am thinking…  This Colace is not doing its thing.

I am thankful for…  getting over the worst UTI I’ve ever had.

From the learning rooms … puking out the side door of a car is not for sissies.

I can't believe . . .my kiddo and I are having a fight via IM’s.

From the kitchen . . . Tonight it’s going to be going out.

I am wearing…  shorts, a Clark Security Tee Shirt and bare feet.

I am creating . . . Something somewhere
I am going…   pray hard that one of these days the money tree will bud and sprout. I’m tired of being broke.

I am reading . . . The Poisoned Pilgrim by Oliver Potzsch. Medieval Germany mysteries!

I am hoping…  With the heat and humidity predicted we get a rolling thunder and lightning storm.

I am hearing…  The palm trees blowing in the wind.

Around the house. . . . 1 cat, 2 dogs outside, English court music on Pandora.

One of my favorite thingsA good book and a glass of wine.

A few plans for the rest of the week
1.   Steak kabobs for dinner tomorrow
2.   Hit the farmers market
3.   Walk around the block with the dog.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing:

Why didn't they name me Grace?

So nosey rosey me went around the corner to see the accident that made a lot of noise. Someone was making a left from across the street and got creamed by an SUV who spun out into a fence. The girl who was hit was driving a late model Cadillac with expired plates and no license with 3 little kids in the back seat. She was scraped along the ride side and lost her side view mirror. The kids were okay. The person who hit her was driving a large SUV, she ended up hitting the fence of a condo on our side of the street. The girl with the kids was pretty devastated.

So onto my story. I was walking back home and got to the sidewalk leading back to our gate and I fell. I just twisted and went down. This is the result of that:

so now my leg hurts, my back hurts and my left hand which I put out to brace myself is aching. 

Well every day is supposed to be exciting but not painful.

Movie rec.....

Now you know if you've read me for a while that I don't talk much about going out to movies. I'd rather wait for the DVD most of the time. I have gone when my daughter says Mom you have to see it.

I've heard a lot of good things about "What Maisie Knew". Julianne Moore, Steve Coogan, Alexander Skarsgard (my beloved Eric from True Blood...now you know my celebrity crush-ha) and a marvelous little girl named Onata Aprile. It's a story of divorcing parents who are more intent on hurting each other in a divorce, hurting their new spouses and it's seen through the eyes of a little girl. It's hard to watch, especially if you've been in a relationship/marriage that falls apart and you forget about the collateral damage.

I won't give any more away but if you get a chance watch the movie. You won't regret it.

Been a roller coaster around here

Oh my faithful minions, I wish I could tell you that I boarded an aluminum tube and flew to where tropical breezes blow and fruity drinks abide. But no. There have been a bunch of roadblocks and FOD on my runway of life. 

So the mystery pain continues. No ideas as to what is causing it other than perhaps it's a floating appendix and one of these days it will actually do something that will catch someone's attention. 

The power steering (electrical) went out on our car. No bueno. Luckily it was covered by a special warranty. Brought me back to the days of drivers training and no power steering on our Plymouth special at North High. So they do the how every many point check on the car and the front and back brakes as well as all 4 rotors and a wheel need to be replaced. So any thought of going anywhere was cancelled by that. I got to drive a mini rental while goldie was in the shop though. 

Things started to look a bit better. Then Sunday morning came and the pain peeing arrived. I took the OTC meds that I had and that helped a little. By Tuesday though, I was really sick. I called the husband and said we have to go to urgent care. Went to urgent care and peed in the cup. Blood and elevated white cells. Rx'ed me Cipro and Zofran. They gave me some Cipro before I left the office. I had some coke in the car and sipped on that, while we headed to the pharmacy. Big mistake. I started to get nauseous and for the first time in years, I hung my head out the side of the car and puked. A big thumbs down to the cars who couldn't figure out the lady was sick and honked their horns. 

Got home and started on the meds. Feeling better now. 

Had the MRI/Arthrogram last week. Got a nice bruise from that. Still waiting on the appointment to go over that. I emailed the office. No answer yet. 

The heat has returned. School starts and the thermometer starts to go up. Perfect beach weather with the kids in school. Not that I go to the beach for anything other than eating at my favorite places. I can't tell you the last time I was in the ocean. Sharks are in the ocean. 

Well I must end this missive. I'm praying that some monsoon moisture wanders over the coastal plain and we get some much needed rain and some lightning and thunder. 

Peace. Clear skies and following winds to all.

Mandated Appointment Cancelled

So I have a mandated appointment to jump through the hoops. The office called and said we've cancelled it because you need an MRI first. That should be fun. More pain coming.

I'll send my caseworker a letter and tell her I'll keep her updated on the forthcoming date.
