Great job getting what we did yesterday to everyone. I was seriously hoping to make it to church but I am seriously not feeling good this morning. I am unable to turn my neck w/o being in excruciating pain so will take it easy today. I will take boys to candy sales later but plan to do school work while there.

made my bed dressed2shoes med to Puppy fed dogs took thyroid med
made list for today (on paper) took calcium pill emptied kitchen trash & replaced bag
DS dealt with wasp's nest on outside recycle can.
I am planning on playing Dice Game, today... but after doing 3 things... I wil spend 15 minutes on old purses.
Rolled to do "Laundry" -- 3 steps to this one. put load of laundry in washer folded load of laundry put that load away
i rolled to "cook" next, well that one is going to involve several steps... tossed a recipe that I don't want to keep even tho DH liked it. He likes lots of things, thankfully. I didn't like this one. Found my good knife!!! Forgot that I had dropped it before I left town and it somehow went under the refrigerator. So, got a yardstick and swiped it out from underneath. swept up the dog hair & other debris (crumbs, etc) that came out from under the refrigerator along with my knife. thoroughly cleaned that dang knife! cut up 2 onions
cut up 4 garlic cloves rinsed bell pepper, but DH is taking it back to the store & getting me another one. This one was bad in the inside. made ranch dressing put together a salad rinsed & sliced tomatoes
boiled some eggs rinsed & cut up bell pepper (DH went & exchanged the bad bell pepper & bought a couple other things I needed) cut up a little more onion strained the spaghetti sauce boiled some pasta
got some dishes soaking put left-overs away boiled some more pasta went thru Office in a Bag looking to see if I had bills I need to pay. Not really... glad I paid them before I left town. I will need to pay a couple tomorrow, but not as pressured about them... so will let them wait. I did make a phone card re: a credit card & got the interest lowered and converting to a cash back program. Also, got DH to review taxes cause I thought we owed an estimated payment... he had said "no" when I wanted to make the payment last month. Well, he's not sure now, so just wants me to go ahead and make the payment after all. Argghh! He is the one who sat with the accountant & I tried to watch and follow but it was like... 3's a crowd as I couldn't see and seemed like they were just trying to talk with each other & didn't like me interrupting... It was aggravating, then. Also, got him to speak with him about another financial paper that I had been holding to show him & review with him. And, also re: property insurance, too. We also discussed another insurance and he decided that he does want me to take this insurance out. I wasn't sure about it and had held onto this paper until we got a chance to discuss it. So, Yay!!! Lots accomplished!!! 4 papers into recycle bag
3 papers to be filed 15 minutes going thru an old purse *52 cents put in change bank to be donated *4 old business cards of mine put in Memories box *2 papers "to be shred" *Tossed: some expired Claritin, vial of eye drops, gum wrapprs & some other thing? *2006 receipts put in Tax Box *2007 receipts put in Tax Box *48 papers into recycle bag
Done with Dice Game for today.

emptied kitchen trash for 2nd time today & replaced bag, again washed 2 sinkfuls of dishes got the rest of the dishes, etc. soaking moved load of laundry to dryer put left-overs away

Saffron, I'm sorry you're having an aggravating day--sounds like you had computer problems too. It's funny how that throws us off--even though I have PLENTY to do that's not on the computer, it feels like the whole day is thrown off when I can't get on line!
Didn't you have any giant brooches (is that how you spell it??) to pin on your dress to hide the stains?
Today I have to go to PT and may need to go see doctor but other than that I will be home all day today. I am seriously hoping to get lots done around the house today.
got boys up and dressed fed boys breakfast gave boys their meds took a shower and got dressed took my meds ate my breakfast went to PT called doc put heat on neck put gas in car washed dishes cleaned cans scrubbed counters loaded up dishwasher did bible reading checked email made backups of my computer brought all decorations up to the attic straightened out part of the craft area in attic brought up the rest of the craft books to attic got both boys off their buses checked older ds's progress report - All A's and B's again got clothes together for younger son folded clean clothes switched over laundry got dinner for boys fed boys and ate myself did homework with boys got younger son ready for concert took younger ds to concert worked on family room fixed connections to tv got snack for the 3 of us watched a movie with boys folded clean clothes switched over laundry put in last load gave younger ds a bath gave both boys their meds took my meds I am happy with what I got done today and know that I won't get anywhere near as much done tomorrow since I will be out for over half of the day.
Great day, everyone! I slept well , so getting a good start on the day. My helper just called. She won't be able to come over as planned due to illness. That will give me more time to declutter today. Hopefully, she'll be able to come over on Thursday morning.

Thank you, Saffron. I am not doing well, today. My dogs got into a fight at 4am. We think that my older dog who must have some kind of doggie dementia probably came in my bedroom to tell DH that she needed to go outside, and she probably tripped or walked right over Puppy who seemed to have been sprawled out next to DH's side of the bed sound asleep. My DH has one puncture where he got bit by one of them. DAngelDog seemed okay, but shaken.
Later this morning, she seemed like she could hardly walk and seemed to be a back issue (she already has back & hip problems). She did go outside to urinate. Then, she seemed a little bit better as far as walking went. But, she wanted to drink some water & stood over the water bowl & did something odd with her mouth. As if, something might be hurting her in her mouth. And, I recalled that I thought I saw a little blood above one tooth in her mouth at 4:30 this morning.
I tried to offer her some water with my hand... but she wouldn't even lick her mouth.
Then, she seemed to wander around... so thought maybe she was hungry. I put some food down and she seemed like she wanted to eat it but couldn't seem to get her mouth to work right. So, I tried hand feeding her & still didn't work.
So, I called Vet's office.
Took her immediately there. She perked up when I put the leash on her & walked out of the house, fine. I picked her up and put her in the car but she had trouble lying down.
Noticed after we walked in the door that she was oozing blood out of her mouth...
Vet looked in her mouth..... ended up having her put under anesthesia. He thought one of her teeth may be broken. Turned out none were broken but blood was oozing from her gum in one area. He got rid of the tarter in the area. Also, he gave her antibiotic injection and pain relief injection.
The Vet also explained that it could very well be her kidneys, again. He didn't do a blood draw for that and it's okay with me... as we know already she has kidney problems and it is likely very high right now.
Got her back in the car & bought her a cheeseburger on the way home. I had to carry her in from the car as she just couldn't do it.
At home, she ate half the cheeseburger (hand fed part of it to her & she did the rest herself). She kept wandering back and forth to her waterbowls. I finally picked her up and put her back in the bed & she went to sleep.
Then, later same thing with the wandering back and forth between bowls. She did drink a little bit of water... but mostly standing there & tripping on the bowls. Still wouldn't drink from my hand. Put her back in a bed, but she got out a few minutes later and, again, the wandering to and from bowls. If she is not better by tomorrow afternoon... hard to know what to do. She had been doing so well. But, did notice the last 2 days she was eating and drinking less. This may be about the end for her... I don't want her to suffer and I'm afraid that she is. Could be just the trauma from the scuffle with Puppy and she just needs to rest and heal.

I still want to NOT do the tasks... but I WANT the 0 degress MORE. MouseAnne
May 22, 2012 Tuesday "The plan" (subject to change, of course)
night lights off dressed2shoes after sink bath sip coffee/small breakfast take garbage sack to alley drive south attend BSF have lunch with friends drive north take a quick break call mechanic regarding "handle" on back of car falling loose went to mechanic's, he ordered the part, will go back Friday to put it on $100.00 plus labor pick up grnddtrs from school 3:00 p.m. post office---dealt with mail, mostly junk
go to UPS, mail 6 packages---went to UPS, but did not mail the six packages. She carefully measured one flat one and said "It's going to be $17." I can't print what I said to myself. The package was going to be mailed to a friend in a north valley city, not even another state. Then she said it was going to be $8 if I mailed it via USPS. I said more words that can't be printed here. I will finish relating my earlier rant after dinner. Gotta go for now. I am not through ranting, believe you me! 8:45 p.m. okay, I'm done ranting... LOL It's just that the postage was going to cost more than the #$% CDs I was going to mail. We went to the post office and I sent grnddtr-13 in to see how much the one CD would be to mail it. The woman said $2.75 via media rate. I was so slow getting from the car to the p.o., the inner office closed so I was too late to mail the durn things anyway. What a pain! LOL
have grnddtr-10 do half-hour of chores---after a little "attitude adjustment," she was ready to do her chores. put away the rest of the dry dishes washed a few dishes that were in sink, set out to dry put returnable plastic dishes in brown bag straightened up stuff on right counter
go to Save Mart for a few food items for dinner dinner with DSon45 & grnddtrs send them on their merry way... took the girls home, DSon was on his motorcycle water= items to recycle=1 misc oddball items thrown away=0 items to giveaway box=0 weighed and posted to google calendar tied up bathroom garbage sack reline br gb can took br gb sack to alley returned MC's call, no ans. called DSisMEH to rant and rave called DSisMEH back after a while and we had a normal conversation with a minimum of ranting on my part, just a little snarling took girls home to change their clothes visited with "step-wife" for a few minutes... car garbage to alley can night lights on brush & floss took ASA 8:30 p.m. sent several photos from cell phone to e-mail @ home, deleted photos from cell phone. load #1 to washer load #1 to dryer load #1 folded & put away called DSisMEH again, had a good conversation
