Busy weekend. We drove up to northern Idaho to help daughter #2 move. She was ready for us and by 5:30 that evening we had her three bedroom apt almost emptied. I had wiped down all the closets and sills and mob boards in all three bedrooms and her front room. I also cleaned a bathroom. So she only had fridge and kitchen cupboards to wipe out and one bathroom to scrub. The kitchen had been thoroughly cleaned. But I was so sore and moved so slowly. I would find myself laying down between rooms for a few minutes, so unlike me. Had a hard time driving as my wrists were so inflamed. So hubby drove up and back and he was starting to get a bad cold. I was so stiff when I got out of the car hubs asked if I was going to be able to go to church in the morning.
I had a really hard time getting out of bed and had to put on my largest dress shoes and I could hardly get them on. One knee was swollen and one Achilles tendon was inflamed. hands were worse and getting ready took me 1.5 hours. Limped to church taught music, it about killed me to direct but the kids had fun and they didn't know. I think the pianist was on to me however. When I got home I broke down and took 2 predisone tablets. I must say other than shots I have never taken this kind of steroid. I am scared to death of side affects. But I could tell that my time was up and moving was over. I went to bed and slept hard for 6 hours. Woke up and felt about 1/2 better. So I have been taking 2 tablets for the last three days and I am hoping I can cut down to one in about 5 days. I have to get through this show. I am probably going to swell up like a balloon as I will start retaining water.
I JUST HAD A GREAT IDEA ! SLUGGY AND I WILL RENT OURSELVES OUT AS FLOTATION DEVICES FOR THE SUMMER. I WILL USE MY MONEY TO PAY FOR MEDS AND SHE CAN USE HERS FOR HER PURSE HABIT!
See there is always a silver lining.
Yesterday, I sewed and worked on props for the show. We did not have to clean last night so that was nice. I still have 9 costumes to finish and a myriad of other things, Ugh!
Went to the dentist this morning and she replaced an old cavity or filling. Doctor is now suspecting that old fillings might have decay under them and that is where this bacteria is sneaking back from. She was shocked to find quite a bit of bad decay under this first tooth. Next week I have a crown. I hate to spend the money but what choice do I have? Not to walk?
Right now I am trying to drink a diet coke with a 1/2 numb mouth and am dribbling all over. I am so attractive. I just realized that I have not updated my debts for the month, but I do not have time to get this done and go looking for those figures, so next month I will just be extra special.
By the way I do not think that Carla is enjoying her new sewing machine, what do you guys think? Is that sarcasm?
I have a Snow White costume to alter and finish and a little Snow White to make, I also have to get all my music onto one CD and just realized that I am out of copy cd's and some of my music is at the studio, so I will be making a quick trip to the store before 1:00. I also have 7 shadow costumes to make, still have not figured up a prototype. Hopefully the Ballet Mistress can help me when she gets here.
Well I had better get busy, no one will do the work for me. Hubby just came downstairs and said he needs 2-8 foot 2x2's. Add that to the list.
Have a great and productive day!
