Belated Valentines Day and just random stuff

I had planned on using this picture for Valentines Day and I am a few days late.  Hope the day was good for everyone.  Hubby got me the pretty red tulips and some kisses.  The valentine is from a bloggy friend from the past.  I love this little bear.  We went to Red Lobster for dinner and to a basketball game for our grandson.  I needed to get out.  I was worn out after about one hour.  I am still battling whatever this is.  But at least I am getting some little things done.
My newest Kewpie.  I think the bear wonders why she is so naked when it is so cold out.
Like I said random pictures.
I was looking for another picture and ran across this one.  Halloween 45 years ago.  A hunter and his bunny, hah. 
Okay random stuff here....................
I called and made an appointment with a new doctor today to see if she was taking new patients.  She actually used to work in my practice.  I haven't been able to get over the fact that when I called on a Thursday because I was sick and didn't hear back til the following Monday.  I haven't seen a MD in probably 3 years.  Always a PA.  Nothing against a PA but once in awhile a M.D.  I have an appointment for March.
This whole political stuff is getting to me.  It is so long til we have the election but I am so sick of it all. 
I may or may not be a little grumpy.
The first part of the Grammy's was okay but after the rap show I turned to watch Teen Mom.
I am not getting the last boxes unpacked like I should be.  I do have too much stuff.  So I am organizing it. 
I am trying essential oils.  How many of you use them.  I am new and probably have no idea what I am doing.
I am fortunate to have a Hubby has been doing the grocery shopping.  He is so kind that he brings home gluten free things for me.  We would probably starve if he didn't. 
Well, I better stop this random stuff. 
Trying hard to be positive but some things just get my goat, hah.

Sweet girl, you vent all you need to! That's how we care for one another. I like people who dare to be vunerable. I can't handle and can spot a phoney a mile off. When I'm up I shout it to the world and when I'm down I don't hold it back either. My stomach feels better since I've learned to just be me. You are a love. That photo is adorable! Hope you feel 100% soon.

Random thoughts and postings are good and we all have those days, Debby. Sounds like you had an enjoyable V-Day and a very sweet husband too :-) I know what you mean about not seeing a doctor. All the years we lived in VA (12) we never saw an MD but instead a nurse practitioner who we really liked. She would always take the time to talk and ask how things were going with us. Since moving to NH a year ago, we have not seen a doctor, but instead have been to an urgent care facility a couple of times and to to checkups at the senior center done by nursing students from a local university under supervision. We get a diabetes test, cholesterol, blood pressure and a few other things checked at no cost. Thank goodness that neither of us have any serious medical issues (that we know of). We hope to eventually find a PA or nurse practitioner here. Good luck with your upcoming appointment and hope you feel better soon.

Oh Debby, it sounds like you're really having a hard time. I know essential oils are supposed to be good but I have never used them myself. Maybe you can find out from a health food store or from where you bought them. A Naturopath doctor would be able to help you or you may be able to find out online.
I hope that you feel better soon.

I am so sorry you have had such a rough time of it!!! You are still a lot of fun - even when you are venting and thinking real thoughts!!! I love this post and will be praying for you!
Essential oils are all the rage!! I use a few - lavender being my favorite. Amber is using a few but we don't really know what we're doing either!
I love REAL people, Debbie, and I love YOU!!!!

So sorry you are not well, hope you feel better soon and beat whatever it is. I have had a rotten winter health wise. My migranes have gone cronic and are making life rather miserable. I have cut gluten and all sugar and am having a little help from a private clinic to get the diet just right. Their motto is "Food as medicine" and they have good results. I am very hopeful. Do love all your sweet dolls, your home must be a lovely place to come to with your sweet treasures and living furry friends. Take care, blessings, Pam in Norway xx

It's hard to find a decent doctor, and it's hard to get in to see them.

Debby, I am battling a cold/ hoarseness as well. I am trying to tough it out. I use YLEO Essential Oils and they have been a big help to me. You can find lots of information online about oils these days. I likve YLEO because they are therapeutic grade. I also picked up two salt lamps today with a rebate I had been awarded, I put one in our bedroom and one in the living room. A friend who is a chemical engineer says the science regarding them is good. It is supposed to purify the air, cut down on coughing etc and promote a good nigh's sleep, all of which I can use right now. You are right, PAs have their place but I like to see a doc when I am having a particular problem. Feel better soon!! Didn't know you were a BUNNY!!:)
