Monday, Monday

Hah! I beat the WordPress weekly reminder 🙂

So, today is Monday and it’s Martin Luther King Day.

I had an appointment across town near St Anthony’s this morning, and decided to call a taxi early !

Reason being….all kinds of streets and their intersections are blocked off ! I was not able to ride my Scoot over there, because of getting stuck on the way back by all the blockades.

All turned out well, anyway. It’s just the cost of the taxi , round trip.

I have had lunch, checked my two email accounts, straightened up around  my place, stood watch at the front desk for the desk clerk while she took a  bathroom break, and called a friend who is out of the area.

Now I’m waiting on a return call from a friend , Charlie, who will go up with me to Gateway Shopping Center. I need several items from there, and also need to look around. Office Depot is my most very favorite shopping  retail store.

Nearing the End of 2013 Looking Forward

Well, hello ! I did have one more skin cancer to be taken out . It was a doozy. It was in my forehead, and growing roots toward my head !

It took two times going in and digging with that darn scalpel, but the good doctors got it all . Whew ! I am looking forward to a new year with no skin cancer !

Better to Smile Than to Frown

Where do I begin ?  I guess I’ll just start typing. There has been so much going on in my real life that’s been both good and bad. In fact more bad than good. But: the “good stuff” is what I look at and that keeps me going on.

I had not even recorded anything in http://www.singsnap.com since May 14th, so I finally did, just this evening. Tomorrow I’ll go visit   a few friends when I’m able to do that. I sang : “Waiting For The Times To Get Better.”

It really helps me to sing.

I did get a list of to-do things all finished except for the laundry.  After  sweeping and mopping floors and vacumning the living room and bedrooms, it was all I could do to just get the 3 loads sorted out !

That’s all for now, be safe be well !

Scoot Takes Me Places !

Scoot is what I affectionately call my little scooter, which is a Shoprider Echo 3 Model # SL73. I will be driving Scoot to the Doc’s in about an hour, and ten will come right back home.

I feel so great at the moment, because the injection is all wore off, lol. Sounds weird, but it lasts in my body usually for a week past the time I get injected again, every Wednesday.

An update on my walking: I’m not able to walk for blocks at a time, however, I am able to walk around in my apartment and also outside  and also I’m able to catch a bus  and go to the store without Scoot if the store is close to the bus stop.

Yay for determination and small accomplishments. One. Day. At. A. Time. 🙂

I hope to visit some blogs today when I get home, if the injection does’nt zap me first !

That’s all for now. 🙂

This is the next custom art I will order for my bedroom.

What Really Happened Wednesday May 11th 2011

Yesterday began with the usual…getting out of bed and walking to the bathroom , for which I am very thankful to be walking around my apartment  once again. I showered and got ready to start my day.

Scoot was still charging , so I did’nt unplug him until it was time to leave  for my appointment. Around 8:45 a.m. Scoot and I left for the doctor’s building in back of  Bayfront hospital.

 My R.A. doctor’s nurse, Ginny, is kind enough to give me my injection every Wednesday until my other doctor gets back from his volunteer duties over in Africa , which will be  June 20th.

It did’nt take us long to drive over there, but had to be very alert and wary of dumb speeding drivers hurrying on their way to work. If  some of them keep on driving like they do, one of these days, they will end up in ER or worse.

I only had to wait for ten minutes and my name was called. Before five minutes were up, Scoot and I were on our way out of there. Super ! 🙂

I spent some time with my friend Bob after getting home, as he needed to have company. He’s used to working part-time, but is still on doctor’s orders to remain at home. He is doing well .

Last night I was over in http://www.singsnap.com  and had some fun singing and listening to others.

I took two naps during the day because  methotrexate will make one zap out whether one does not wish to sleep, or not !

Other than this, I just rested and relaxed. I so want to dance ! Those days are over though…because of my knees, and my lung capacity.

I might as well write a bit about today as long as I’m writing.  There’s not much going on, LOL ! 😀 I drove down to the post office and mailed a letter , and then  went over to Publix food market. The ride home was nice  and hot! It’s great to be out in the sunshine ! 😀
