sitting just sitting...


I am tired.

 I had 3 medical appointments on Monday, another on Tuesday late afternoon , and one more on break of dawn Wednesday. OF COURSE all were more than an hour away. I have one scheduled next week and have 3 more doctors to call for appts to catch it all up and get it done this year as my out of pocket is maxed out. I also will be getting the flu shot mid Oct and then Nov call to schedule my back injections. 

I got this month groceries bought in the home, not all dealt with. I found a 20 lb. turkey for 89 cents/lb. .

I have cherry tomatoes, butternut squash, acorn squash , watermelon and watermelon rind, peas, apples, grapes, hamburger, steak, cube steak , sausage patties , steaks and the chuck roast I baked last night to deal with.

I have a laundry basket of mending to do

I haven't started my weekly cleaning let alone fall cleaning. 

I haven't wiped down the jars I just canned and taken them to the pantry nor shelled the dried beans 

I haven't picked peas in two days, or the other dried beans that need pulled or work at clearing the garden beds that are done.

What have I done besides run to medical appts ?

I had a light stroke that got missed amongst the busyness of the season. It showed on the head MRI that was ran for other reasons, ruled out MS and tumors.

Left side that affects vision, language and memory.  It has not affected it enough for Hubby who is a EMT to notice it. Or even my doctor that I see every 3 months. I still read nightly, I still run my mouth... which neither comment to my brother or girlfriend went over very well but our kids thought it was funny.

I already have been doing all I can to keep my heart healthy since I was BORN with left side heart failure. I had a nasty fall awhile back and they now think either the fall causes the stroke or maybe the stroke caused the fall instead of my cerebral palsy. Six one , half dozen another. My attitude is IT DOESN'T MATTER ... it just is. 

My doctor who I see this coming week already called me to let me know that I just need to eat healthy, get exercise and not watch all the negative news. I'm okay. 

But right now I am drained and tired so it's a day of doing nothing.
