Hi, Kids! What's shaking? Nothing? Same here. Thank goodness. Except for all the cray cray going on TV. You know . . . government stuff. I'm sorry but I can't seem to get my mind off what is happening in our country. It makes me nervous. Jeeze, I know there will normalcy once again, but everything is in such disarray right now. Since the weather is nicer, I find myself away from television more. It also helps that I can now maneuver and get out and about. Wheee! Better weather and getting healed up is a real game-changer.
Yesterday, I went to town and did some "junking". Love it. If you have a Stuff Etc. store around you, check it out. I find some of the neatest things for very little ka ching! I have been finding some cool pieces to put in the yard spaces at The Woodbridge Building. You know, lawn "eye candy". I've got a big enough open space, that we can do certain individual areas and make it look more interesting and homey for our visitors.
My social schedule is getting busy. For once. Usually it is just a bunch of doctor appointments. Blah! Anyhoo, I actually have two events coming up that are at the same time. One of our neighbors is having a wedding reception at Woodbridge next month. Hubby and I were invited to it. I accepted. Told them our choice of chicken or beef. Then Hubby reminded me that it fell on Mother's Day weekend, and we already had plans to spend it in Minnesota with son Dan and his wife. Dan has purchased tickets for all of us to go to a vineyard Mother's Day brunch. And I am excited to see his new house. Haven't been able to visit it until now. But, I feel bad that we will miss the reception, plus it means I won't be here in case there is some little glitch or problem with the building that needs my attention. Oh, well, I'll just make sure they have an ample supply of toilet paper for the bathrooms, and hope that they don't need me.
I talked to son Dan yesterday on the phone. He was quizzing me on how I felt when I got hit with Vertigo years ago. Apparently he is having some odd symptoms of dizziness and getting light-headed. That makes me a little nervous. If any of you have experienced Vertigo, you know what I mean. The first time I had it, I woke up one morning and Bam! The bed was spinning so fast, I was clutching the sheets, thinking I was going to fly right out of bed. Yuk! Some of the symptoms lasted for three months. The more people I talk to, the more I hear that others have suffered from it. I never even knew what it was until I experienced it. huh
Good news . . . maybe. When I was down at Woodbridge yesterday, I had a fella stop by. He was with one of the local major fundraising clubs, (I won't mention which organization it is at this time), but he said his club members in the community heard of our non-profit for autistic individuals, and want to write a proposal to help us get funding! Whoopee!!!!! He said it sounds very promising that we are eligible for assistance. Major news! Our board has already decided that we are going to have to build up a "War Chest" fund before we open the doors for our day-habitation services, to insure that we have the proper funding to keep going. In Iowa, we are again losing one of the Medicaid providers, so things may get kinds sketchy getting our clients' waivers paid in a timely fashion. In other words, we don't want to open the doors and not have the backing to keep going through bad times (late payments from Medicaid), if that should occur. So, we shall see what happens. This news makes me a bit nervous, too, but also excited. One can only hope!
Tomorrow, I have my CT scan, to check on that node, or nodule, or lumpy thingy . . . whatever it is, on the edge of my lung. That should be interesting. I will get the results Friday when I go to my oncologist. Jeeze. It's always something, right? I am pretty confident that it is a nothing-burger, but it's best to get it checked out. Not too nervous about that. Everything just seems to be a routine experience anymore. What happens, happens. There ain't much chance of changing things.
Granddaughter Cate just bought her first house. She is getting excited about getting into it and doing the painting and decorating . . . you know, to make it her own. If anyone can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear (that's an old person's saying, for you younger folks), my Cate can. I have offered to help her do some initial cleaning, but I think my painting days are over. I need to do some of that around my own house, but I can't reach up high, can't squat down to reach down low, and there is no way in Hell that I am climbing on a stepladder. UH UH!!!! I have no desire to create any chance at all of having to push the button on my emergency button necklace and call for HELP!
You know, I can't believe that less than two years ago, BFSILPIC (Best friend, sister-in-law, partner-in-crime) Nina and I were running around Vegas on our yearly long-weekend vacay. I was doing all kinds of yard work in my large and hilly backyard, and lifting and reaching things around the house. It's really frustrating to not be able to do sooo many things that I have always done over the years. But I have hope that things will change, and I will get back into my groove eventually. Ya think? :)
Anyhoo, have a good day. Don't be nervous. I got enough of that going on for the both of us.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY
