....because I can.

Monday...this is Monday isn't it? I feel like I'm in a fog this morning...it's like that when I've been so busy then one day I wake up and I just haven't a clue.

This week promises to continue the busy pattern. Today I see the back specialist...that's a little scary. I will get the results of my MRI. Tomorrow, I see the doctor that did the carpal tunnel surgery...a follow-up appt. I'm not real pleased with that surgery. My hand is better but I still have tingling in 3 fingers and sometimes the palm of my hand. I'm hoping that's because the swelling hasn't gone down in the nerves yet. I do know it's still pretty sore...not to mention I haven't exactly been a good girl...I think I'm using it too much.

Wednesday, I'm going to my daughters then following her to their campsite. Just her and I will spend the day and overnight together for a long needed catch-up. I haven't seen her for months!

Then hopefully Friday I can get a perm in my hair...methinks I let it go too long and all of a sudden, I can't do a damn thing with it.

I'm sure, sprinkled in this week somewhere, Susie will have something that will scrunch up my time. Seems there's an auction or something but yanno, if I wait 'til she doesn't have anything for me to do then I'd never get my stuff done.

Saturday I spent doing heavy duty housework. I finally figured out how to rearrange my living room without moving the tv or the electric fireplace...I just love it! Then yesterday, I got my messy garage back in order, then we took off and went to our church picnic in the evening. When we got home I had my flowers to water then I just simply CRASHED! Slept in my recliner 'til about 3:30 this morning, got up and went to bed and didn't get up 'til after 9:00 this morning....and I still feel wiped out.

Sugar, I read your blog where you are thinking about fall and the holidays. You and I sure have that in common! For some stupid reason, I sometimes begin thinking about Christmas as early as July! I blame that on these 'Christmas in July' sales that started to become popular several years ago...QVC I think started that whole thing.

Anyway, at least by the middle of August, my inner clock is beginning to shift to the season of fall. I look forward to fall then the holidays with mixed emotions...it's kind of a love/hate type thingy. To make matters worse, I'm one of those people who is affected by the change of seasons...summer to fall is the worst.

If you don't have that problem then you're likely to not understand. It's an 'inner thingy'....it stirs the emotions, makes me restless and sometimes agitated and irritable. It can bring incredible saddness or a sense of euphoria and no matter what, it's all an emotional roller coaster ride. And with this cool weather this summer, especially in July and so far, this month, it all started early this year.

As fall approaches, I get this overwhelming 'nesting urge'. I want to get organized and batten down the hatches for winter but July is WAY too early and so is August. This year, I feel outta sync with the seasons and it sorta keeps me in a state of unrest.

I do look forward to early darkness and chilly/inclement weather so I can return my focus to Zelda. I'm in the mood to create (something lol) but I don't have the time now to stick to it and see it through. I am getting tired of this 'fits 'n starts' kinda writing, it drives me nuts!

OMG! I'm outta time! Gotta hurry 'n put me together for my doctor's appt. Ya'll have a good day, be safe. be happy 'n keep smilin'....

Hugs!
Softie

Softie, I LOVE Fall, the leaves changing, and the crisp nights with the days still warm. The only time I "hate" winter, is late February because about that time, I'm done with the snow and cold and ready for things to come alive again and the return of warm weather.

I like the Fall holidays: Halloween, Thanksgiving and then the winter holidays, Christmas and New Years. It is just so festive and bright during that time with the lights and all.

But hey....don't tell Straddle.....I like to let him think I don't like winter.

Ok Bruce...that'll work....when you do read it you can get the new info I got today.

I don't need surgery!!! Yea!! At least not for now. I have a ton of arthritis in my back and hips so they're going to do a shot (ouch!) and about 9 therapy sessions. Now I can go ahead and make my fall plans.

I love fall Sugar...just love it! Like you, I like winter until after the holidays. I can usually make it to February before I'm sick of it. Last year, I did a lot of running when I really didn't wanna...not gonna do that this year.

Then, too, last winter I got that flu just after Thanksgiving and I thought I had it all winter but found out in the spring that what I really had was a screaming case of fibromylgia...and arthritis on top of it. Now I'm on Celebrex and the fibromyalgia is calmed down...not gone but tolerable.

I'm hoping, after this shot I will feel a hellava lot better so maybe winter won't be so bad...last year was a nightmare. Some other issues has been settled also, so I won't be one angry person all winter.

I am looking forward to more inclement weather...rainy fall days, snowy winter days...when I have time to write...uninterrupted! Something about rain and snow tweaks my desire to write.

I read the post in its entirety (hey I'm honest). Let us know what goes down. But around here we are blessed with the damnedest summer I have ever seen. It has been spring here for six weeks with temperatures in the seventies to mid eighties We have had adequate rain too so the trees are rebounding and wild flowers are flourishing. Mother nature has been generous. I expect a gorgeous colorful fall, something I have never seen and will revel in

There are a lot of transitions in my life but life is good and I feel blessed to find myself in the circumstances that are my new reality. I did well being daddy to not only my daughter in tough times but my grandson as well. But I am now relieved from day in/day out parenthood and I sure am glad Whatever time left I have is mine and I can afford to do quite a bit

It is all still sinking in but I have a on my face
