Day 251/Day 113

And it’s almost over.  Have you noticed how early it gets dark lately?  It’s 5:20 and full dark already.  I like this time of year — it’s cosy.  I’ll get this entry done & then read some notes & then go read a book.  Make dinner, which is uninspired tonight: chicken nuggets, baked potato & peas — because I forgot to take a package of hamburger out to thaw.

I’ve done nothing all day … again.  The knee pain seems to be under control if I take a vicodin just before I go to bed, take one in the early am when I get up for the usual, and then another one when I get up at 9:00.  Except this morning I didn’t get up until 10:00🕙 — sick in the middle of the night last night so I needed an extra hour of sleep.

I think Penny’s sick: one of her eyes is watering pretty badly, and she’s sneezing — it’s a wet sneeze.  I hope I don’t have to take her to the vet — transportation is so difficult.  Not to mention the money aspect.  I’ll call my niece tonight and see what she says — she knows a lot about animal troubles and what to do for them.

Thought I had a chiropractor’s appointment today but when I called to confirm the time, the receptionist couldn’t find it.  So I rescheduled for tomorrow which will work out better anyway: I can get Granddaughter to take me to Costco to pick up prescription refills and also to Walmart (which is right next door) to get just a few things and pay the electric & gas bills, and then I think I’m pretty well set for the month.

Feeling pretty lazy from not doing much — trying to stay off my feet to give the knee time to heal itself, if it’s going to.

Hope everyone had a good Monday!

It funny how some things on our bodies they say to use it and yet other things they tell you not to….Like if you have a frozen shoulder you are not suppose to use your arm but yet we do…It’s one of those catch 22’s.

I hope your body parts feel better soon…

The early nights make me unproductive!
but it is also nice to feel more relaxed too

I’ve been having knee issues myself. Had water removed about a month ago and I am ready for it again. It causes me pain getting up or even laying down. I have to get it in the right spot to sleep. Hope yours heals

I like that the sun is going down sooner, especially here in Arizona. I also like the sunrise. The rest of the day is ok, but not as good as the former. I hope your knee gets better. I’m told by others that knee pain is awful. Yes, try to stay off your feet and see if that helps. I did have a pretty good Monday. I hope you have a great Tuesday!

Hurting all the time is a bitch. I hope your various pains calm down. I’m working very hard to lose weight on the assumption that less will at least show the cause of some of the aches.
