Morning all.

I felt terrible most of yesterday, not sick, just exhausted and weak. Delayed reaction to too much stress? I dunno. Finally started feeling better by late afternoon. It took us hours to do maybe an hour's worth of work cleaning the house to make it ready for the "shoppers". Sheesh.
The house didn't look "bad", we just needed to do a little picking up, but if you looked closer ~~~ well, we needed to go over the black granite countertops, the black tempered glass table, the dark wood floors ~~ there may be a lesson learned (too late) about having dark surfaces ~~ and two cats. Ha! We also worked to get Chrystie's sneeze marks off the leather chairs and glass surfaces, something we have to do regularly, but of course we hadn't done it the day before. There really wasn't all that much work to do, but because I felt so bad, I had to sit down between each thing I did. Thank goodness Mike worked with me. Anyway, the house looks good for US now.

Nice couple, she very outgoing, he as quiet as Mike. I think they were UnderWhelmed with our house, but hard to know. Sarah said all the lots HAD been sold, but the last one, the single guy who was going to build a Broadmoor (like ours) fell through. Guy decided he didn't need that much house. Strange he didn't realize that before he signed on. So now there is still one lot and the Model home left unsold.

annnieM, Oowwee! How miserable to have to pay for the tooth twice, and how even more miserable to have to have it pulled and have stitches! I'm glad at least that it doesn't hurt.

I'm so glad Jamie is really forceful in dealing with these people. Too bad they can so easily "hide". The joys of dealing with government bureaurcracy.
smiley91
How fun that you got some play time with Zarah and Henry!

We were posting at the same time ~ How fun to get to spend some time with Henry!  I'm glad your Momm and Jamie are going to be with you while Dave goes to his meeting.
I hope his meeting gives him peace and strength.

The EXCITING news is that your Wheelchair is almost here!   I will cross my fingers and toes that it fits, and fits WELL and that the cushion is in and comfy.   Where do you go to try it out?  
Bless Jamie's heart for lighting a fire under these people.   It's shameful that you had to wait so long!

Lou Ann, I hope you are healing!

Good Morning

We started the moring off yesterday with the news that our Federal Tax refund had been deposited into our account, and that two AmEx gift cards we had sent to help defray the gas costs of people who would be driving a fair distance to visit Tom had been sent, and then we got emails saying they had arrived. Nice to start the day with three bits of good news for a change.

Easter? I dunno. We have snow! Started 5-ish coming down sideways with terrible winds. I was glad we had gotten all of our errands done and were safely inside. It looked awful. I saw one man walking his dog and he actually staggered in the wind gusts. Not a place for moi!
Woke up to 6 or 7 inches and more expected through tomorrow, maybe up to a foot! Definitely time for me to stay inside with a nice cuppa and a fire!

Nice lunch at Bonefish, then picked up some sale items at Omaha Steaks (free ham with purchase of sale items!), then on to get some other groceries, mail some cards, pick up our mail and HOLE IN!

Our copy of Les Miserables came yesterday afternoon. You can guess what we'll be doing tonight. I think I told you Mike's sister and brother-in-law took us to the theater production at the Pantages Theater years (and years) ago. It was wonderful. I can't wait to see the movie.

smiley6
Good to see you, Mary Ann!   Come back when you can stay longer and get us all caught up on what is going on with you.


Me?  I'm going to go outside and make
smiley9
Yeah. Suuuurre, I am! LOL

The last two lots ~ Mid March


Close up of "the mountain" after Basement excavated.
With dirt from each lot being cleared, it's pretty much been like this since we moved in.


Sunrise.


March 23 ~ Spring (?) Snow.
These were taken around 9AM. Snow still falling and may through Sunday.


From the front door ~~ without walking out onto the porch.


The Deck


Snow packed against the door.


Still coming.

Good Morning.

Ut-Oh.  I'm talking to myself again.  Is that a bad sign??

It's Palm Sunday, but it looks a bit more like Christmas out of my windows. Official totals show Arvada having 9.5 inches of snow as of 2PM on Saturday. I know we got more after that, but I don't know how much more. Winter Wonderland!

We stayed in by the fire with a good book (me) and good TV (him). Last night we watched our new DVD of Les Miserables ~ simply lovely. I was really surprised at how good Russell Crowe's voice is, and Anne Hathaway simply blew me away. The dishy Hugh Jackman was cast for his star power and acting ability, but unfortunately not for his singing ability. Too bad, because he played the lead and had some wonderful songs that he couldn't do justice to. All in all, a wonderful and emotional night. Have any of you seen the movie? What did you think?

No plans for today. We should go out and make snow angels or build a snow couple, but you know that's not gonna happen.


I've decided that I'm going to have to kill the Shogun. Haven't decided by what diabolical means or where I'll hide the body yet. Some time, when he least expects ~ or maybe when he most deserves it ~ POW! To the Moon!

Speaking of reading (was I??), I wanted to share with you that Mike gave me a Kindle book for St Pat's Day ~ it was so cool. He bought it from Amazon and they sent me an e-mail saying that Mike had sent me a gift, and showing a picture of the book with a link to my gift. When I clicked on the link it took me to Amazon, where i signed into my account and downloaded my new book. How cool is that?!

The book is called "A Catered St Patrick's Day Murder" and he chose it because he knows I like to read holiday books around the individual holiday. Turns out, it also happened to be by an author I had read and enjoyed before, Isis Crawford, so twice the pleasure for me.

These books involve two sisters who are caterers and (of course) also part time sleuths. Their dad is a widower and the retired Police Chief, retired early because he has Parkinson's Disease. He directs his daughter's sleuthing, but also likes to use his former training to do some investigating himself. Unfortunately I haven't read these books in order which always makes them more enjoyable. In the last book I read, he was having a lot of trouble with the Parkinson's, and had his daughter's boyfriend driving him to crime scenes and to interview suspects. He needed help walking and getting into and out of the car. You could feel his frustration.

In this book, he has taken up smoking again ~ but never when his daughters are around because they would yell at him. His Parkinson's is in remission and he's able to do so much more than he was before, and he credits it to the smoking.

This tracks with some things I've been reading about how the incidence of Parkinson's in smokers is so much less than in non-smokers. While no one is willing to advocate taking up smoking, there is interest in having people with PD wear a nicotine patch. Interesting in any case, and I love this story line.


Ok, Book Review in the Wrong Place over. Have a lovely Palm Sunday.

Oh, dear.  Here I am talking to myself again.   Is that a sign of mental illness???

Nice quiet day yesterday. We got a little more snow, but nothing worth mentioning.

I meant to mention that after I washed all the goo out of my hair, I think I got a good cut ~ Yay! I badly need to color it now.

Nothing major planned for today, either, but tomorrow I have my annual visit to my Cardiologist. I don't anticipate any problems, but you know that's often when you get a surprise. I'd druther not.

While we were sleeping our State Tax refund was deposited into our account. 10 days from the time we filed to get both tax refunds deposited. Can't beat that with a big stick! I do love filing electronicaly and having the refunds direct deposited! We pre-paid next year's estimated State Tax with the rest of the refund.

Hi Ho, Chickies.


Hello Dorothy.

Hi, Dorothy.  How are you today?

Fine, thanks, and you?

I'm good, too.

I did get my hair color in and my laundry folded ~ not much more, though.

Appointment with my Cardiologist this morning. Haven't decided if we'll go for my "reward" lunch or dinner today or wait until Thursday. Marcela comes tomorrow morning so I'll have to get back in when I can.


Have a teriffic Tuesday Dorothy.

Thanks.  You too, Dorothy!

We called the wheelchair place yesterday and my cushion is supposed to come in today.   I'm hoping they will call after their UPS delivery and tell me good news.

Hi Dorothy!  Sorry that you have been talking to yourself.  Mom was here for two days straight!  It was good but it was no time for me.  I enjoyed your book review!  How interesting!  Hope you have a wonderful reward after a good visit to your cardiologist.

Hi Mary Ann!  I sure couldn't tell you why anything happens here.  Happy belated saint paddy's day to you!  Hope you don't have to be without computer connection for so long.

I have some pictures of my grandson.





Happy Easter everyone!

Hugs,

Believe it or not, here I am.
Dragging my big fat sorry butt behind me.
I have not seen so sick in a long while.
Last week is a blur....fever filled sleep is mostly
what it was.  I should have gone in to the doctor
but to tell the truth, I did not feel up to it.  It is funny
that when we are our sickest is when we need to
be out and about....there should be a better way.
I thought I was feeling better on the weekend but then 
Monday I was headed in reverse again so on Tuesday
I got my sister Suz to take me to convenient care.
Bronchitis, Pneumonia and COPD so I am told.
Feet and ankles swelling.  Liquid on my left ear?  Seemed
every word brought another diagnosis.  So now am on
antibiotics and need to wait it out.  At this point I am
very sleep deprived and can hardly function.
        
Dorothy, praying big time for your brother-in-law.  With all that
has been going on in their lives, they are probably both in denial about what could be happening now.  I am sure he feels he has to be there for his wife and she is probably worried about what she would do without him there.  It is a hard situation they are in.  Hopefully something with click with them soon and they will realize they need to act soon.  I will continue to pray for them.
        
annnieM, I feel your pain.  I totally understand your feelings about your sister taking care of Henry and you being unable to.  It is a justified feeling.  I have long been jealous over my sisters being able to take my nephews places and do physical things with them that I was unable to do.  I admit to the jealousy and it is normal.  But dwelling on it it not and will do you no good.  I know that Zarah feels your pain also and is trying her best to give you quality time with Henry.  Maybe the next time your sister could care for Henry in your home so that you could enjoy the event along with her.  I am glad you had some Katie time.
        
Hi Mary Ann, glad you could stop in so that we know you are well.

I am worried about my mom.  She has been having this sharp little pain in the left side of her chest so my sister took her to see her doctor this morning.  Then I got a test that they were headed up to the hospital for a CT and have heard nothing since.  It has been a couple of hours and it scares me.  Say a  little prayer that all is well.
I need to get off the lappy for a while.
Hugs,

Easter week, Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday, also known as “Holy Thursday,” is the Thursday of Passion Week, one day before Good Friday (the Thursday before Easter). Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples, known as the Last Supper. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday.

First, Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples and thereby instituted the Lord’s Supper, also called Communion (Luke 22:19-20). Some Christian churches observe a special Communion service on Maundy Thursday in memory of Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples. Second, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and service, thereby setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility (John 13:3-17). Some Christian churches observe a foot-washing ceremony on Maundy Thursday to commemorate Jesus’ washing the feet of the disciples.


Good Morning, everyone.

Yesterday was busy for us. First Marcela came and stayed longer than usual. Then we had our next door neighbor Barbara (The RePurposed Surgeon) in for a cappucino and a nice visit. She's leaving for Guatamala on Tuesday for another Mission. This time they will have electricity and she may be doing some teaching. She will be gone six weeks. Have I mentioned that she is amazing?

Then maybe an hour later our across-the-street neighbor, Shari, called and said "Can I come over?". Sure, sez I. She has friends that might be interested in buying the last lot. She has the same model house we do, but it was one of the first ones built here, and we made several changes to ours, and she couldn't remember what they were. She wanted to have us show her. We also visited with her.

It was all fun, but we are anti social beings, as you know. Hermits. After being with three different people at different times, we were tired!

The family friend I told you about (we gave her a gift card to buy gas for trips to see Tom) did go to see him today, and she called to tell us about it and let Mike talk to Tom during the time Barabara was here. The situation is worse even than we had been told. For us, it's hard to believe because we haven't really seen him "failing" and when we talked to him he always sounded like Tom. For Carolyn and his daughter, they have seen his condition go downhill for a long time. For us ~ he was fine "yesterday".

He is dying.  

A few days ago we were told he has maybe six months.   Today, maybe a few weeks.


D.

Dorothy, I am so, so, sorry.  I was afraid that this is where
this was all going.  Nothing I can say will mean a thing, just know that my heart and prayers are with you and Mike and Tom and his family.  What will his wife do?  Is she going to be ok?  You have been busy, haven't you?  Your neighbor really does sound quite wonderful.  What an amazing human being!!
I am amazed the other neighbor did not ask you to show her friends your home.  Or maybe she thought you would offer.

GrannnieM, I cannot believe I forgot to mention how beautiful Henry is and what a wonderful smile he has.  And it is a unanimous conclusion as I showed mom the photos and she agreed.  He is one handsome, beautiful little boy.  Kiss him for me, please??

My mom is ok, they found nothing on the CT and the pain is gone...I think my mom is becoming a bit of a hypochondriac.  Though I know, after my cancer, I went through the same thing.  Worrying that every pain or twinge what some new disease or problem that was being thrown at me.  They were so long because Joanne treated mom to lunch.  They could have texted me :(
I have a new issue....Insomnia!  As tired as I have been for the past week last night I never slept.  I got back up and went back to be several times but to no avail....So I checked and it is a possible side effect of the Levaquin.  ARGHHH.... drives me crazy.  At some point my mind is just not going to function any longer.  It is hard to muster up the gumption to do anything.  I have to go to the anticoagulation clinic tomorrow because of the antibiotic.  I do not know how I will manage that.  Hard enough to breath now, let alone down and up the steps and in and out and round about.  Not looking forward to it at all.  Going to go do something...what??  I have no clue.
Hugs,

Good Friday

Have you ever been so tired you feel almost sick? Yesterday was such a day for me. Things just sort of caught up with me, I guess. We had planned to go out for dinner, and I honestly thought I would fall asleep and go splat onto my plate like Goldie Hawn did in a movie I once saw. Fortunately, it didn't happen and I felt better once we were out.
I still went to sleep too early, so of course I woke too early, but I feel a whole lot better today, thank goodness.



Lou Ann, thank you for your prayers and your concern.

I think Mike and I are both numb with the news about Tom. Of course we knew he wasn't well, but we truly had no idea how bad things were. We've gone from shock, to furious anger, to more shock and now to numb "acceptance". I think Mike's sister is having an even more difficult time. She pretty much can't talk to anyone about it yet.
Carolyn is doing surprisingly well right now. I'm sure this is a day-to-day thing and I know she must be getting exhausted going back and forth to the hospital and dealing with all the paperwork while trying to take care of herself. She goes back to the Mayo Clinic mid April for a follow up, but the surgery they did on her face is really remarkable and she has her mom and sisters in the same town with her. Her youngest daughter will come from Omaha for Easter and spend time with Tom as well as with her mom and her mom's family.

I'm glad your mom is ok!  She's been through so much it would be terrible if she had yet more to deal with.

I'm so sorry you are dealing with insomnia now.  When I have several sleepless nights in a row, I'm worthless ~ and miserable.   Are you seeing any improvement in your breathing yet?   It doesn't sound like it.  Miserable to have to add a trip to the Lab for a blood test when you are feeling so bad.
Praying for a quick and complete healing. 


Sending hugs and good thoughts to GrannieM and Mary Ann.

When it rains it pours...and believe me when I say I am in a deluge!!!  On top of the insomnia...60+ hours and counting, I now have another side effect that is scary as all hell.  When I was reading about the side effects I noticed a special notice about Levaquin causing muscle/tendon/joint pain.  For a couple days now the calf of my left leg and been very sore, as if I pulled a muscle, which I had not.  Early this morning I was walking into the living room to my recliner when I got a blinding, searing pain in my calf and I basically fell into my chair.  Now if the muscles/tendons pull the least little bit I am in severe pain.  I read that the damage can cause tendons to rip apart.  At 7am I was on the phone calling my doctors office.  Everything I am reading says stop med immediately and try not to use the painful areas so as not to cause more damage.  So, finally, around 11am.  One of Dr. Fownes nurses calls back.  Stop the Levaquin.  Put me on a new antibiotic and see him on Monday.  A short while ago as I came back from the bathroom...I am using a cane for fear of falling, I started getting pain in the other calf.  I do not know if I am turning into a hypochondriac or if this is going to turn into my worst nightmare.  Reading more that there are class actions suits against this drug due to the muscle/tendon damage.  It particularly attacks the Achilles Tendon.  So I am asking you all to keep me in your prayers.  My breathing is really not better either and I am sure it does not help changing antibiotics again.  I did not even go to the Anticoag. Clinic.  Called and told them what was going on and that I was not coming.  I will ask Dr. Fownes to have my INR checked while I am there Monday and go from there.

A warning that the April Sign in Page may be very simplified if I cannot manage the full version.  I will do my best.

Hugs,
