New Day

So, rather than giving in to pain, I got up at 6:30am this morning and, as a result, had a heck of a lot more time to do things during the day.

The girls got a few walks, everyone who needed medicine got it, worked in baking an apple cake and a pork tenderloin, and also did a little bit of wash.

As I haven’t been back to work yet, I figured I’d try to get some older clothes together and bundle them up for charity.The week will end up on Friday when I have to go back to the infectious disease doctor for an update.I would assume that after that, I’d go back to the orthopedic doctor one more time for a sign-off.It is an assumption, because realist that I am, I KNOW that anything that CAN go wrong, will.

Today, however, was a Blessed day.

Ladies’ Night

Unfortunately, I have to work tomorrow, so the girls and I are home solo and after I write this, we are going to bed. After all, isn’t tomorrow supposed to be another eggs, bread and milk day? I think they are calling for 1 to 3 inches so the thought of getting boots on and going out to 5 year olds is making my head swim.

I don’t know how my teacher friends, thinking of Gen and Debbie directly, deal with the snow onslaught, albeit only for a few hours.Hell, it’s a job for me to get MY boots off…I can’t wait to see how I am going to make out tomorrow.

So it’s “To Catch a Thief” on cable, followed by a hot shower. Visions of undoing boots are dancing in my head.I can only hope I get to sleep tonight!

Yawn

I went to bed last night around 9:30pm.

I am up since 2 am.

What the hell?

Those little thoughts that won’t let you sleep. Trying to put something on to make you fall asleep. I didn’t want to take anything to make me drowsy. I figure by the time I went to back to sleep, it would be time for me to get up and make today a really long day.

I don’t know if it is the possible cold front coming through, or the alleged rain and snow mix that is forecasted for Friday.Sometimes they say all your scars in your body act up and make you” feel” the weather. I know, there are a million old wives tales.

It’s frustrating when the husband is sleeping, Zush is sleeping, I come in here to type the blog and put the television on and Kasia is sleeping.

Doesn’t Mom get a break? Just wondering.

Pop Pop, Fizz fizz….

If you remember the Alka Seltzer jingle, you’ll know the ad was the Alka Seltzer cold formula.

I have never taken it, although right now, I can probably pass for a tuberculosis patient with this hack I have.I have had a river of hot soup and a ton of expectorant, and yet the hits just keep on coming.

So I will be taking a hot shower tonight and trying to get some of this congestion out of me so I can try to get back to normal. I haven’t been walking past 10,000 much because I just, quite frankly, feel like crap.I am to the point where I’d give all the money I have for 5 straight hours of sleep.After all I want to be up and together for the super bowl. I am sure that this is just a payback for the beautiful weather earlier this week.

Take care, everyone, and I will chat with you tomorrow.

So after the rinse cycle on the iPhone6…

…God, it feels that way.

I am currently back on the phone with Verizon, trying to get the numbers of the phone that died.This is after I spent 10 minutes on the phone with the insurance branch of Verizon, Asurion, who really couldn’t care less to help me.and probably wanted to go back to sleep on the night shift he was working.

At least this guy, Andrew,a star in customer care, is trying to make me feel a little better and attempt to work my problems out.I know someone in Verizon Customer care gives a rats’ ass about the little guy.

This damn iPhone 6 bit has all the ear-marks of becoming a mini series, except I really don’t have the stomach to keep this up much longer.Suffice it to say, I am hoping the drama is done and we can get back to the regular smutz of life.

Early to bed…

…early to rise….

I am working the polls tomorrow morning in my new home state, as it will be election day here. It is humorous to me, as in my college years I was a poll watcher for different presidential candidates, including John Anderson-doe anyone remember him?

Tomorrow I will be out of the bakery and on the other side of the table and it will be a new experience for me. The rough part is I grew up in a state where polls were open from 7am to 8pm. I am due to my local fire hall at 5:15am to help set up, as the polls open 6am here.

Off for a quick shower and then, hopefully, a few good hours of sleep.

Election results from me tomorrow….lol

Full day

I did miss sleeping in today, as former retired people would people know.

We got up for Mass this morning, then paid a sick call on my buddy in Cape May.We then realized that we needed food for the house, so we went food shopping. We ran home and I walked the girls before coming back in and scarfing some lunch before changing for work.I got back in at 7:15 and walked the girls for their last walk of the night. Unfortunately, I have to get up early tomorrow morning for a doctor’s appointment.

I miss retirement. I miss my sleep.
