Another day gone and nothing to show for it.  That is how I feel.
Days just keep moving on but I am sitting still.  I feel as if I should
be doing something.  Instead of playing games, etc all day.  Bug what
that something would be I have no clue.  I am just getting bored with
everything.  Lalala...whatever.....
The girl in the upper back apt is moving out, as we saw a U-haul out back.  So we asked for my VCR and tapes back.  Was afraid she would take them with her.  She had them all set to give back to us.  Then we saw a U-haul in the front driveway.  Turns out the woman with the 2
kids that has been staying in the front apt with Christine was moving
out too.  The place will sure quiet down with all the kids moving out.
We enjoyed when the kids would visit.  Bud, the landlord, is going to
remodel the upper back before renting it so it will be empty for a while.
I think it is time to start a new book.  Will have to see what I have in 
my Kindle Library.
Had a new challenge in my CDO group...create a monochrome tag
with a pop of color.  So this is what I made and I made one for you
too Dorothy.   Enjoy!
Hugs,

Good Morning!
smiley13Ya never get bored with the weather, do ya?   It was in the mid 50s yesterday, and today it may get a degree or two above freezing and there is a 35% chance of snow.  

We did have a nice lunch out and then went to the grocery store and the meat market.  It got pretty tired out.  Mike and I are falling apart!  Pathetic!   We got a 5 lb brisket and I put it in marinade last night.  Later today I'll pop it in the oven for 5 hours and then scrape off the fat and slather it with BBQ sauce for another hour.  Haven't had that for a while.     

I really have spent way too much time trying to learn to use my SmarterThanIAm phone, but I have made some progress.  I've learned that if I leave it turned off most of the time, it doesn't use as much battery. Can I be far from letting this one just live in my purse turned off like my old Dumb Phone? 
    I did have it in the car yesterday and read my emails. I watched the delightful Flash Mob video you sent me from there, Lou Ann. That was fun!  I'm not as anxious to respond to emails or texts yet (if ever).  Just can't get used to talking with my thumbs.  Lol. 

I did set up my first Reminder with Siri earlier today.  She is supposed to remind me tomorrow morning to pay my Chase bill.  I'm kind of anxious to see how that works.


smiley51
I don't see how you can say you aren't productive when you have made us this lovely February skin, and all the beautiful presents.   I love my Flutterbunny tag!  Sooo sweet.  Thank you so much!!!

Wow, everyone is moving out.  I hope when your landlord finds new renters, they are nice.  Does he still come around to visit from time to time? 

I haven't seen anything from Sharyl since before I sent the flowers.  As I said, I hate to call or text her and make her talk to me if she isn't feeling ok.   I'm not sure what to do, so I'll probably continue to do nothing and hope for the best. 

Have a happy day!

I love Sundays.  I do not know why, other than I
always feel peaceful on them.  I feel that relaxing,
reading, etc are all acceptable pursuits on Sunday.
I am reading a historical romance, which is my 2nd favorite genre in reading.
Tomorrow I have my hospital follow-up with Dr. Johnson.  If my doctor is going to continue to be away then I am going to consider changing doctors.  I want a doctor that will be around when you need him.  My sister thought he might be snow
birding in Florida.  I do not want a Dr. that is gone all Winter.  So am going to check into it.  If he is,
then I want to see if the nurse practitioner Denise is taking new patients.  I love her and am comfortable with her.  I do not like following up with a doctor who does not even know me.  I need to remember to get my INR checked too!
Your brisket sounds wonderful.  I want something
barbecued.  It is very appealing at the moment.
You are getting very proficient with your smarter
than you phone.  I love that you call it that! LOL
Well, I need to use the ladies room so will say
goodnight.
Hugs,

Morning all and welcome to another week.

We didn't get the snow they had been predicting yesterday, but it was definitely cold. Looking out my window this morning, I don't think I've ever seen it so foggy!  They're predicting some snow showers again today, but I kind of hope not.  I have an appointment late this afternoon to see my Oral Surgeon for my (hopefully) final blessing.   It's still a bit ouchy if I move my tongue in a way it doesn't like, and there is still some of that white 'stuff' behind the place where The Thing was,  but otherwise everything seems fine.  

How did I spend the day yesterday?  Did I pull myself away from the SmarterThanIAm phone?  Of course not.  One kewl thing I learned was that I could take a picture in Panorama Mode and it's really easy.  How often have I wanted to do that when we were on a trip?  Very!   Apparently in order to bring it over to save on my hard drive I can upload it to The Cloud or I can link to my laptop and download it to "iPhotos", but if I delete it from one place, it's linked so I'd delete it from both.  Very nervous making, so I emailed them to myself, saved them and made them smaller in PSP.

I just took these two from my chair, scanning more of the second one than the first,  but from that position a 'normal' picture would only be of the TV and the chair. Pretty kewl, huh?  The second is a wee bit distorted, but not too much.  I'd have loved to have been able to do this in some fancy hotel or B&B rooms in the past.

I did have a funny thing happen, just showing what a dummy I am.  I had been playing with the Weather App and deleted Cupertino and New York and put up cities that I might actually care about.  Later when I came back in, the background was all dark grey instead of the pretty sky blue with clouds it had been!   I'd broken it, and I had no idea how.  I spent a good hour trying to fix what I had broken and I couldn't!  Awful!   Then . . . . I came to realize that the reason the background was yukky grey was because Arvada was cloudy, and so were all the other cities I had chosen.  Later Laguna Hills had a lovely bue background with a few clouds.  Apparently the background is animated.   I hadn't broken it, the weather just changed!   What an idiot! LOL.

Yesterday I asked Siri to remind me to pay my Chase bill today, and she said she would, at 9 o'clock.  I can't wait to see how she does it. 

Sharyl posted tonight, again on Facebook, and said she was going home tomorrow!   She will have been in the hospital for 15 days, and the first week in ICU.  Every time she has posted she has sounded fine, and upbeat, but I still haven't a clue what was wrong. She said she was going to try to go back to work on Thursday (!) but she needed to rest a bit.   A BIT?!   I can't imagine she can go back that soon, though I know she does need the money.

 The florist sent an email telling me my flowers were delivered yesterday but I never feel safe or sure they were actually delivered to the person I was sending them to until they say something, and of course when people aren't feeling well, reassuring me that they got there is the last thing on their minds.  If she does go back to work soon, I have an appointment a week from Friday, so I can find everything out then.  I almost feel guilty keeping my appointment, but as I said I do know she needs the income.

So, off to see Dr Palitino late this afternoon, and then leftover BBQ Brisket and whipped potatoes for dinner.   Such an exciting life I lead. 

smiley41 
Lou Ann, I really agree that you aren't being well taken care of if your Dr is never there or isn't there for the half the Winter.  I hope you can find someone you are really comfortable with to take care of you.

I'm reading steadily but so slowly.  I never seem to just read for a couple of hours at a stretch, or at least not often.  Right now I'm reading the latest Laura Childs Tea Shop mystery.  Very good, as always, but crawling right along. 

As usual, I've prattled too much, so I'll hush ~ for a while.

Monday, Monday
What can I say....Bitterly cold today.  Even the bathroom was cold.  When I stepped into the tub I almost screeched, it was so cold to stand on...so I sat, but the shower seat was also freezing.  Damn northern bathroom.  I hurried through that shower.  So I was off to the Doctor today.  I saw Dr. Johnson, the cutie patutie that put me in the hospital.  He was not at all happy with my progress.  Too wheezy for his liking.  So he put me back on prednisone.
For 9 days to reduce the inflammation in my lungs and help open up my airways more.  And he added another inhaler.  Flovent So hopefully will see some changes.  Also he took me off of the corrig.  He was concerned about my low blood pressure and I told him about why I was put on it and not for my blood pressure.  So he ended it.  They kept holding it in the hospital because my BP was low.  So this is good.  He told me to follow up with Dr. Fownes or himself in 3-4 weeks.  I forgot to make the appt while I was there. A couple hours later I got a call at home from the clinic saying that I was supposed to make a follow up and had not.  It impressed me that they followed through.  And what do you know?  Dr Fownes was going to be gone again when I was due to be seen again so I am following up with Dr. Cutie!!  I think God is trying to tell me something.  I know Louann and my mom think I should switch to him.  I just find it awkward that they are both in the same small clinic.  But Dr. Johnson is young and I could probably have him the rest of my life unless he leaves.  Decisions.....I hate them sometimes.  So then there was my INR.  The Anticoag Clinic called, I was back in leeway, but barely and then I had to tell them about the prednisone.  So a bit of change in dose and recheck on Friday...damn.  Anyway, that was my Monday.
Dorothy, love the panoramic picture feature.  So many times I have wished I could do that.  I am glad you are enjoying your new phone.  I am hoping you heard nothing but good news at your appt today.  I know you have been to it already, but I will not see what happened until tomorrow.
Have a great Tuesday.  I need to clean up my space and balance the check books.  Wish me luck, lol.
Hugs,

smiley51 Good Morning. smiley51  

Good news, as expected, at the Oral Surgeon's.  It's a Lymphoepithelial Cyst.   Doesn't that sound terrible ~~ until you see the lovely word Benign ahead of it.  Basically a cyst on the top layer of the skin over the lymph node, caused by the lymph node reacting to some trauma like biting my tongue (unlikely so far back) or possibly just the lymph nodes over secreting.  

The white stuff I was a bit concerned about?  The stitches!  LOL!   Sure didn't look like stitches to me!  Ha!  It's still a bit ouchy, but everything looks good.  The remaining stitches should dissolve in the next week or so.


Mike had said he thought the white stuff was the stitches when I first saw it, but it was white and "bubbly" looking so I didn't think it could be the stitches.     The other night when I thought I had broken the background on the weather thing on my new phone, he said he thought it was animated and would be different colors depending on the weather conditions.  Since every city I had up was gray, i didn't think so.   Of course that's exactly what it proved to be, so he was able to trot out his favorite saying for both of those things: "The sooner you realize that I'm always right, the better your life will be."   Lord, help me!

Mike has had a terrible couple of weeks.  Nothing major, more like being nibbled to death by the ducks with one little thing after another, so instead of coming home to leftovers I suggested going to the Bonefish when we were through with my appointment, and we had a lovely dinner and a very nice time.   We also brought home enough lovely leftovers for two lunches for him. :^)

One of the things that has gone wrong is that our kitchen sink is stopped up.  Mike couldn't get a plumber to come out yesterday, so one is coming between 11 & 1 today.    Then when we went to go to the appointment in the Chrysler, it wouldn't start.   The battery was dead and it's only a couple of months old.  That could mean there is something wrong with the electrical system or alternator.  Or I suppose it could be that the new battery is just bad, but that doesn't seem likely.   Anyway, something else for poor Mike to fight with.   Marcela comes on Wednesday, but I really hope he can take Thursday "off" and just veg.   He really needs it, poor guy.

I completely forgot that yesterday was my Re-Birthday, but Mike didn't.  When I went into the front room to watch my Soap, the new Monica Ferris book was waiting for me!  Lovely.

Another nice bit of news for us here in the group ~
I heard that Aimoo is giving us three months of Diamond Membership free!   We won't be notified since that notification would go to annnieM as the Owner, but look for a Diamond on the top left hand corner of the page when it does.

It was really cold here yesterday too, although the official temps were not as low as they sometimes have been lately.  Cold kind of just went right through you.  Nothing more fun than a nice cold shower ~ or actually being really cold OUT of the shower.

I'm sorry you aren't doing better, but glad your Cutie Dr is on top of things.  I really hope you can change to him. He is impressive, and not just for being cute.  Maybe you can ask him about changing at your next appointment with him and see what he says.  I know that can be uncomfortable, but you need to feel good about your Dr.

I have balanced the checkbooks, but I still haven't done the dread Budget Book, so that's on the menu for today.  No more stalling!

Have a great day!

Happy Re-birthday.  So happy you are still with us.  I am sorry that I missed saying it yesterday on your day. But happy that Mike remembered it.  He's a keeper!!
   Just love the confirmation that all is well from the Dr.  LOL about the stitches and LMAO at Mike.  I think he scored one on you there.  Oh no, poor Mike...the sink, the car I will not ask what else could go wrong, because then it usually does.  At least he gets 2 more lunches from your outing.  I saw that about the 2-3 month Diamond status.  Am looking forward to it.  
I did get the checkbooks balanced.  Mine was a piece of cake but moms, not so much.  Part of it was because of Charter.  I check to see what our charge it each month.  And 2 months ago it went up over $20 and then the next month it was back down.  But when I checked out her account online and her statement...they did not deduct the amount they said...it was right in range to what it had been.  I even went online and looked at it and it said the amount we deducted.  Go figure!  There was another issue to and when I got it all fixed, I was still 30 cents off.  The bank says we have 30 cents more then we show.  So I put that balance after ours and we will take it from there.  But that is going to bug the hell out of me until I find it.  But I will give it a couple of days.  I am seriously considering changing doctors.  Is it wrong to ask him if he plans on continuing to practice with Agnesian in Fond du Lac??  If he will be leaving, then I do not want to switch.  I think some of my issues with Dr. Fownes are my own fault for not being more proactive in my care and I do not tell him every issue I have.  I like to let things slide. Have a great day tomorrow.  
Hugs,

Marcela is coming tomorrow morning, so I'm going to post tonight.    

We waited (and waited) for the plumber this morning/afternoon, which is one of those things that is just not relaxing for us.  Then he came and fixed the blockage and sold us some special stuff that is supposed to keep the pipes clear in the future.  

I don't know if I've told you, but because of the way the house was constructed the hot water takes a really long time to get to the kitchen.  "They" make it sound like it's reasonable, but we've always had the water heater in the basement and in other houses we've had two stories above that and still got hot water.  I think we need larger pipes but since the basement is finished, at least partially, replacing them isn't possible.  ANYway, you can turn the hot water on in the kitchen and then go out to lunch waiting for it to get hot.   (Ok, SLIGHT exaggeration, but it does take a ridiculously long time.)   Mike asked the Plumber if there was anything he could suggest, and he said there was something that you can attach to the hot water heater to recirculate the hot water so it is more quickly on.  I don't understand it at all, but we are having someone else from his shop come out tomorrow and look at our set up and give us an estimate.  It could be while Marcela is still here and that wouldn't be great, but it will be good to know if we can get some help.  As it is it's soooo annoying.   Anyway, another day filled with people and waiting.  I'm getting pooped!

smiley51

I didn't get the Budget Book worked on.  Mike took the check book to pay the plumber and by the time I got it back, I was SO out of the mood.  Tomorrow is going to be another one of those days, so I'll wait until Friday when I can concentrate on it.   I'm like you.  If I'm 30 cents off, it bugs me weird.  Mike always says to make a "flying adjustment" in the Budget Book and sometimes I do, but I am always bothered by it.

I really think you should ask Dr Cutie if he is going to be there permanently and since your regular Dr is gone so often, what he thinks about the idea of his becoming your regular Dr.   Of course if he isn't going to be there long, and you might end up going back to your 'old' Dr, there wouldn't be much sense in that.

Stay Warm!

Hello.  Hello.  Happy Hump Day!

We got up, dressed, picked up and had breakfast so we were all ready for Marcela to come and clean this morning.   Mike called and cancelled the appointment with the plumber who was going to give us an estimate for doing something to help our very slow hot water in the Kitchen situation because it seemed like too much with Marcela coming during the same time period.  

Then Marcela called in sick.  I'd laugh if I didn't feel bad for her being sick.   Hopefully she'll feel better and come tomorrow, but I guess we'll have to go through the same routine of getting ready and then see if she can really come or not.    I got her a Godiva Truffle Flight (six truffles) for Valentine's Day, so that along with her check is sitting on the highboy waiting for her.  Unless one of the cats gets to it first. smiley57

We need to get our Trash and Recycle bins out this afternoon too to be ready for pick up tomorrow.  After all the snow and cold, it's getting warmer and warmer.   We're looking at the low 60s for the weekend!  Almost funny.

Happy Hump Day!

I could have sworn I had posted, but I would be wrong, lol.
It is snowing here...AGAIN!  I am so tired of this Winter and
I am sure there is at least a month more of this crap ahead.  At least the temps are above zero...that is a blessing.  I do have to go out tomorrow for an INR recheck.  I suppose there will be more short term ones as long as I am on the prednisone since it messes with my meds.  It also shoots my blood sugars sky high. Did I tell you that my Ophthalmologist left the clinic and not they no longer have one, only optometrists.  They are actively looking for 3.  Poor Dr. Nixon must have been exhausted from trying to see everyone that needed her.  So I am now overdue to be seen.  I will get a call when they hire.  If it get's to be too long, then I will look at going elsewhere.  But I know the clinic is covered by my insurance and it is where I have always gone.  I have a long history with them.  Same with Dr. Fownes, it is hard to start anew.  But sometimes we must.
Your chocolate covered strawberries look scrumptious.  I always see them in ads from Sherry's Berries and am tempted to try them, but they are pricey, so I don't.  Are they worth the money?
Ok, on to e-mail now.  Have a great day!
Hugs,

Happy Valentine's Day!

Do you have any special plans for today?   Our day will be low key, but nice I think.   Perhaps a chocolate covered strawberry with our first morning coffee, then mid or late morning Mike is going to make my favorite breakfast ~~ cheesy scrambled eggs on a croissant.    We plan to meet for champagne in the library around five, and then have SeaBass encrusted in pecans with peas and balsamic rice for dinner.  Dessert?  Another chocolate covered strawberry, of course.   

When I came back into the bedroom from taking my shower this morning, there was a new book waiting on my pillow!   It's Laura Childs newest Crackleberry Club mystery, and the first one in Hard Back.  Her earlier ones have all been Paper Back Originals.  I love all three of her series.  What a lovely way to start the day.  Perhaps I should go and get Mike's gifts and give them to him now.

Yesterday I got the Budget Book updated and balanced ~ hooray ~ and some laundry done.  Mostly I lazed.      

One of my friends in the other group recommended TV show "House of Cards", have you seen that?  We watched three episodes on Netflix last night.   Well acted, affirms my image of Washington (and other place) politics, and best of all some of the most wonderfully bright and clever dialog we've enjoyed in a while!   My favorite new description?   "He's two steps left of Carl Marx!"   LOL   Delicious.  

I saw where Ralph Waite died. He was 86.  He played the father on the Waltons and more recently Booth's Granddad on Bones and Gibbs' dad on NCIS and 'Father Matt' on Days of our Lives.  He really kept working until the end, and was good in everything he did.    I guess that's our three older stars: Shirley Temple, Sid Caesar and Ralph Waite.  R.I.P.

I have been taking pictures with the iPhone camera and they aren't too bad.  I always think they need to be put through PSP, but maybe they don't.   I know you can put them in "the cloud" but I want them on my hard drive, so I email them to myself, then save them from the email and play with them, resize them or whatever, in PSP and save them to my hard drive.     Last night we had a really pretty moon come up and I snapped several pictures.  


Mike's sister texted a picture of the flowers her hubby gave her, and I could text back, but I couldn't figure out how to text a picture, so I sent mine from the iPhone but to her email.  Afterwards, I figured out how to text a picture with my message.   I'll get there.  Maybe.     I hope.  <smiley57>

In the last couple of years, folks from my High School have started sharing information via email.   Fun to hear from them, but there are more that I don't remember than those I do remember.  The bad thing is that we seem to be "dropping like flies".  Death notices coming all the time.   I wonder how many have died.  It surely seems to be a lot.

I don't know how you are able to add pictures "the Diamond way".  When I try, I get the message "Only available in Diamond Aimoo Community".   I'm glad you can do it, but I still have to add pictures to my post from the other group.   We don't have the extra three months there yet either, though I do have them in my back-up group.

I know any medication screws up your INR.  I hope you don't have to keep having blood tests too often.   It's such a pain in the tush.   I need to do my test today, too, but at least I can do it without leaving home.

What a pain, also to lose your Ophthalmologist!   I HATE changing Doctors or Dentists, even when I'm not crazy about them.   I hope you find a good one you really like soon.

OOOOH, more presents!   Lovely!  You are really spoiling me!  Thank you so much!

Happy, Happy Valentine's Day, dear friend.

Watching the Olympics ~ Hockey, USA vs Russia.   We tuned in during the second period, score zip to zip.  Two minutes later Russia scored, bearing out our curse.  Whenever we watch, our team (Hockey, football, whatever) loses!   But wait!  7 minutes later WE scored.  Could the curse be broken?   I won't give you blow by blow, but we are currently 2-2 in the third period.

Are you having any trouble copying borders?  I'm having an issue with the white center becoming the background color instead of white.  This time I copied using IE instead of Chrome and it seems to have worked, but then I have other issues when I use IE.

We did have a lovely Valentine's Day.  Very quiet and low key ~ and somehow just right for us.    Nothing really planned for today, but it's supposed to be in the Mid 60s!  

I just got a text from Mary Ann with an adorable picture of her Valentine, Jack.  I'll have to see if I can save the pic and share it with you.  Too cute.

Been watching a new to us show on Netflix, House of Cards, and love it.  We watched two more episodes last night.   I absolutely KNOW that that's just the way politics are played in our Nation's Capitol ~ and other places.   When you watched the '94 Congress head for Washington, all fresh faced and full of ideals, and then just a few years later so many of them left, or were absorbed into the corruption.  I suspect you can't get anything done without playing by those rules, so you either leave or adapt. 

Whooo Hooo!   While I was typing and watching, Team USA Won!   The actual game was rather tame, but the Shoot Out ~ have mercy!  Score, score, score until we were finally two ahead and won, 3-2!   Yay.  Putin was there in the audience.   Big smile on my face, lovely way to start the day.
