I found this little tool box at one of the barn sales. Rusty and a perfect blue. A sweet new doll from Pat C. of All is Bright. (Not from the barn sales) Her hair and flower are a really hot pink color. Lighting wasn't good enough to show the right colors.
Seems like a long time since I posted. Not really but a lot has been going on. I promised to show you pictures of the things I bought at the sales last week-end. There were lots of church sales this week-end but I didn't go.Little O. started back at day care because mom got a job with regular hours. We both think it will be good for her. Of course, I will still see her. I miss the little stinker. My dogs don't.
Let's see my blood work came back. Everything normal even my cholesterol. I told the nurse that although that would be wonderful, perhaps she should recheck. Well, they didn't check for cholesterol. I will have to have another draw for that. Nope.......not at my expense.
Then I went to the ortho doctor for my shoulder. They did x-rays. They could see arthritis in the shoulder but that doesn't show tears. The plan is 6 weeks of therapy twice a week, then a return appointment. If that doesn't fix it, a steroid shot. Then if that doesn't work, and MRI to see if there is a tear. If there is, surgery on my rotator cuff. I think it's the ailment from having to clean so often. Two of my friends had to have the surgery when there houses were listed. (Did, I tell you that before?) Okay, it isn't going to go that far, I'm pretty positive it won't. Thank goodness my husband has been running the Dyson for me all this time. It would have been a lot worse. Oh anti-inflammatory meds too.
But the good news was that I had lost 30 lbs in the last six weeks. ( This is the doctor I went to for my trigger finger. The cortisone shot he gave me then has really healed it.) They weighed me on a digital scale. I asked the nurse what I weighed the last time. She acted a little miffed about looking it up. When she came back in the room I asked if she checked it. She went back out and came back in the room and said that she wanted to weigh me again. I knew it was wrong but oh how nice that looked on the scale. I have lost 20 plus pounds over the past 1 1/2 years.
I also had my flu shot and picked up orders for a chest x-ray and mammogram. I had a return appointment with my family doctor for Monday to go over the x-ray and blood work. Well, they never told me that I was to get the chest x-ray. So I postponed that til I do. I also have my sleep study this week to see why my oxygen levels are so low. Actually to monitor them while I sleep. They are letting me do a home study since I have such a problem falling asleep. Whew.......glad I have met my deductible this year. Still with the deductible and 20 %, it adds up. Nothing compared to friends that are going through some major medical things.
I still watch M. and Mabel one night a week. We are watching them tomorrow so their parents can attend a meeting.
Yesterday school was closed. I took Goose and K,Bug and her best friend to see "The Book of Life". Not our first choice but I had to get the girls back for their cross fit class. Geez. My granddaughter's best friend is my friends daughter and a former pre-schooler. SO fun listening to them giggle like pre teens.
I also watched a one year old this week. I will be watching him for a few hours one day a week for awhile. He's a cutie but he really missed his mommy.
I managed to get some groceries yesterday as well.
Hubby was being sweet and did dishes this morning. Later he went to turn on the water and we didn't have any. When you have a well, this is scary. He's pretty sure it is the hot water heater that lives in a concrete pit outside the house. We called the plumber, the lottery winner, but he hasn't returned our call yet. So no water all day. I made chili and brownies for dinner.......amazing how many times I went to turn on the water. Not having water means no flushing. Hubby went and bought some gallon bottles of water and drinking water. We will fill them back up if we need to. Times like this you feel like a pioneer.
This cute Ginger from ToadSews is posing in front of this little caddy I found at another barn sale. It had the greenery in it but I thought it wasn't real. When I unpacked it there were needles everywhere. So before I took it apart, I added some candles and had Ginger pose for you. I was a little afraid that the candle might catch the greens or the dolls hair on fire. I have bad luck with candles you know.
And, I finished these cuties for the Christmas mini swap. I'm not sure what to call them. I decided Christmas Woodland Fairy. (Hubby thought they were drummer boys)
Some have candy cane wings and the others toile for the wings. I didn't have enough of the candy canes. They have acorn caps for hats.
Okay, well that's it for now. I am going to retreat to the bedroom with my cup of Sleepy Time Tea and a new read on the Kindle. (My husband is watching the OSU game and the dogs and I like things to be a little quieter) I do apologize because the paragraphs didn't end up where I planned on them too. Too tired to do over.
