Saturday, company, I wrecked myself...

     Hub's got in last night and it was nice to just have him home.  He took B to the airport early this morning and she is now with her older sister for about 10 days.  Lil Sis is in Cancun and I received a text from her about doing all the flowers for my cousins daughters wedding. I would have loved to have gone but mom is not able to travel like that. I felt bad as my cousin came here and helped so much with my eldest daughters wedding.  So I just pretend I sent Lil sis then I am not so jealous:)  Plus she had mom while we went to Florida.

     Mom's best friend is do in today.  B really helped clean house yesterday.  I am stove up something fierce.  My right wrist is wonky.  So fingers are now all numb, with no ability to open or close hand.  It is also very painful.  I was on anti inflammatories  all day yesterday and really tried to take it easy. I could not sleep at all last night my wrist throbbed so bad.  I am hoping that is was just the strain of all the tomato chopping and not an arthritis flare.  About 5 years ago I had both wrists in casts at night and my hands were pretty useless for about 6 weeks.  Ugh!  I don't like the pain.  I also cannot handle many anti inflammatory drugs as I have taken so much for so many years my stomach is very sensitive.  I have a doctor appointment on Tuesday and I see a couple of cortisone shots in the near future.  Blah!

     I would like to make a home made carrot cake this morning as it is my mom's friends favorite cake, but hub's will have to do the grating and the stirring and the chopping.

     I am also going to get all my Christmas stuff organized into piles and boxes and see what I have left to buy or make.

     I would love to do some yard work today and that was my plan but I am afraid that is out for a while. Drats, I was so looking forward to getting outside.

Well sitting here feeling sorry for myself is not helping anything so I guess I will get dressed and get on with my day.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  1. I hope you get better soon. How on earth can you be productive and sew? I hope you just went outdoors and enjoyed the weather.

    2. I did not mean for you to work, just sit and soak up the day. I am glad you are better.

  2. Hope your wrist is better. The weather has been causing havoc with the arthritis here. For abut 3 days I could not make a fist, but as usual it passed.

    1. Actually I am much better. I know better than to push myself like that. But sometimes I forget and get stupid.

  7. At one time in my life, my right arm flared up so bad I couldn't lift it for 3 days. Cortisone pills were the cure that time. Another time, I had calcium deposits in my other arm, and had to have physical therapy for several months. I feel bad for you. I'm glad it's a bit better today for you. In the end, my arms are really good right now, several years later, so there's always hope.
