Tuesday, Is it August?


 Yes, it is August, I guess I knew that, but it really hasn't registered, and we are 1/3 the way through. I just went and looked at my July goals and realized I failed on many.  One of them was to go visit a dear friend who was put in a care center.  I would always bring her a Diet coke and we would solve the problems of the world, or just have a nice bitch session. Well, I didn't get there, and she passed a few days ago.  I feel terrible. If only I could see her one more time. I don't even fell like I can go to her service, with this cough.  I don't know when it will rear its ugly head.

I started this cold July 27th, and even though I have tried to keep up, I really haven't.  As I became sicker and sicker, time just went by. We have only been out once on the Kayaks, and summer is passing.  I can't even think of going out right now as I am too weak.  I have made no goals for August, as I am just hoping to make it through at this point.  

I think goals are important.  Right now, my goal is to get through the day.  I had a really bad coughing attack last night at 3 a.m. Woke the whole house, even the deaf husband.  I had to take codeine to get it to quit. I had not had a bad attack all yesterday, so I was surprised that I was woke up by one.

I did get that bride dress and grooms suit done yesterday, but I also took a nap. I did get the eggrolls made.  They are not hard, just so much grating and chopping.  When I make them, I always make 20 and I think how can we eat 20 eggrolls? I will freeze some, but then Lil sis asks for some, and I took her 6 and Signe' dropped over and took some to her and Nate and after we ate, we were left with 3. SO, mom and Hubs just had those for lunch.

I have that left over pork roast shredded and I will make a batch of coleslaw to go with it.  Oh yippee, more shredding and grating.  Is everything about cooking shredding and chopping and grating?  I swear it is.  I know when I was teaching Irish dance, I always told my students, "If you don't like hopping constantly, don't take Irish dance."  So, I guess if you don't like chopping, grating, and shredding, don't cook? Something like that?

Today I have 13 pairs of pants to hem, and a bridesmaid dress and another wedding dress and I hope to get to another wedding dress and a set of bridesmaid dresses.  I am behind for the month on wedding dresses. But I will do what I can a nap again if I get too tired. Realize that I can hem a pair of pants (if it is just a rolled hem) in less than 5 minutes, so it is really an easy job. I just have to stay at it!

Okay I am off, to slowly work on something.  So excited.... I think.

Oh by the way gas is down to $3.92 here!!!!!!! Thankful, so $1.32 a gallon less than a month ago.

What are you doing today?  I need to live vicariously through others.

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

Kim

  3. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your friend. I agree with Cheryl, remember the last visit. I'm sorry the coughing just won't get better, but it sounds like you're trying to build rest in as needed.

  6. It is sad about your friend, but it appears you were a faithful and caring friend to her. Are you still using Vicks on the soles of your feet. The last time I did, I still had it on my fingers and I think that helped having it so close to my nose, not the cough, the congestion...lol. Do you make a blind hem on a sewing machine? Or, do you have one of those fancy pants hemming machines?

    You just reminded me that not only have I not set any August goals, I haven't looked back to recap my July goals. Whoops.
