Hi friends! Hope it's okay if I get a new porch going. I don't have a picture yet, but will go look for one. If not, I'll bet Mikie has one in her files ...okay, found just a general one, but the view looks pretty great...to me, at least. I'll be back in a minute to visit...
Yesterday was the first day warm enough to open windows...but I closed them before Den got home from work as it started to cool back down (good for me, but I knew he would be cold, lol!) Today we expect another nice day (low 70's) as well as tomorrow and Saturday. Then highs back in the 50's for several days after that. Oh well, I have a couple loads of laundry on the line from yesterday (napped too late, then didn't care if I brought them in or not) and some more to hang out today.
I am doing better pain-wise...the far-away chiro does so much more than just "snap, crackle, pop"...his treatments are more like accupressure. I think I would benefit from going to get a massage locally, but don't want to take the time right now...maybe Monday or Tuesday. Cataract surgery is next Wednesday...supposed to be a piece of cake, but the info from the doctor suggests "taking it easy for a few days."
Lindsey has a chance to go to California over Mother's Day (to the lady who does the healing massages (?) but I told her I don't trust my eyesight to drive that far until I get my eyes checked again (4 to 5 weeks after surgery) and get a new lens for my glasses (another couple weeks after that.) David's mom isn't up to watching the four kids while David is at work (Lindsey would be gone four days) so it may need to be rescheduled. The idea of going to the beautiful Ojai Valley sounds healing all in itself, but I'm not sure how "miraculous" the treatment is...time will tell, I guess.
The kids keep finding mold in their house, so have been dealing with that (cutting out the bad floor and wall areas and treating with mold remover, etc.) and they are all so sensitive to mold, mildew, etc. The previous owners did a lot of "cosmetic" things to cover up shoddy workmanship...lots of leaks where remodeling was done, etc.
I'm going to get to work...lots to do inside and out. So will just visit as I can...I hate to try to keep track of everyone in print...so afraid I will forget someone. On the political topics....only God knows what's going on in the minds of our leaders...and I believe that He has everything under control, even if some of their actions are questionable or even scary. I'm at peace with our current situation, even if I don't understand all that's going on. I prayed for the former administration, and pray for this one too. I intend to just do what I can...take care of my husband and kiddos, pets, home, yard, dad. Nothing I can really do to change the political climate, so I'm not going to stress about anything. Harder to say than actually put into practice, but we gotta try our best (or be stressed...which for me, leads to pain and fatigue and brain fog, and...)
Oh good news! I was having pain in one of my eye teeth...it has been filled already and I was so afraid I'd need it pulled. But the dentist worked me in right away and he couldn't find anything wrong in xray or exam. He thinks my sinus allergies might be causing the tooth pain, or if I clench my teeth in my sleep (well, yes I do, but I have misplaced my mouth guard...gotta look harder for it.) So, the tooth is "saved" for now.
Love you guys! Take care and please know that I am thinking of and praying for you
