Empty Nest

Well, JJ received the keys to his new apartment today! The new apartment is in the same town where EJ works so he stopped to look at it when he got out of work. I have to wait until tomorrow to see it because… Continue Reading “Empty Nest”

Spring Fever

Last night I told EJ that if he would make sure the ducks and chickens had plenty of food and water when he shut them in the coop at night, I thought I could let them out in the mornings. EJ is always short… Continue Reading “Spring Fever”

Seasons

We had a bit of rain on Saturday night and strong winds through Sunday afternoon. We had just a bit of rain–not like the flooding rains that areas were getting in southern Michigan. It’s interesting living in a forest when the winds is strong.… Continue Reading “Seasons”

Independence Day

My life is normally simple and quiet–I like it that way–but lately I think it is boring, at least to write or read about. With a broken arm, there is not much I can do. The most exciting part of a day involves being… Continue Reading “Independence Day”

Superheroes and Magic Tables

My hand doctor told me to make sure I move my fingers so they don’t stiffen up so I am trying to type two-handed. I think that typing provides good finger exercises. But my left arm feels like a heavy block of wood and… Continue Reading “Superheroes and Magic Tables”

Twice An Idiot

I feel like an idiot today. Twice an idiot. An idiot times two. I was triggered and had a bit of a meltdown. I don’t know if you know much about triggers. The concept of “triggers” has kind of lost its real meaning these… Continue Reading “Twice An Idiot”

Nemesis

We had two days of warmer temperatures–up into the mid- to high 40s. The snow was melting and dripping off the roof. The chickens and ducks were out enjoying the weather. However, once again our yard and driveway has become a treacherous glare of… Continue Reading “Nemesis”

Mostly Good

I really didn’t mean to go so long without posting an update…oops. I am doing mostly good in a lot of ways. I had been afraid that I would be in much more pain after the surgery, but I am actually in much less.… Continue Reading “Mostly Good”

During and After

I survived my surgery. It was done at a surgery center, not the hospital. Apparently, they specialize in surgery. It is a very modern facility. I was so glad EJ was with me. I appreciate and trust JJ taking me to the other medical… Continue Reading “During and After”

Update

I’m home. I survived surgery. It went well. I will write later.

The Billing Lady

I spent much of the morning doing laundry, washing dishes, and paying bills so we don’t have to bother with any of it right after my surgery. As directed, I called the surgical center early this afternoon to learn the time my surgery is… Continue Reading “The Billing Lady”

Surgical Plans

JJ drove me to the hand surgeon today. It was actually a consultation, not the surgery. EJ had been sick when he called to set up the appointment with the surgeon so I think he misunderstood. Sickness can sort of make the brain a… Continue Reading “Surgical Plans”

Low Day

This afternoon my best friend called me to tell me that she and her husband had bought me an Amazon gift card to cheer me. She knows I love Amazon gift cards. While we talked my friend asked me questions such as if I… Continue Reading “Low Day”

Blissful Ignorance

At the same time I am both eager and dreading the surgery on Tuesday. I am eager because my bones can really begin to heal once the pin is in, and I have hope that the pain will lessen. I dread it because I… Continue Reading “Blissful Ignorance”

The Bathroom Blessing

My friend and I have been studying Hebrew together for a number of years. We had to stop when JJ was diagnosed  with cancer a few years ago and we are just now getting back into it. After the long delay, we are doing… Continue Reading “The Bathroom Blessing”
