by Slick1 » Aug 21, 2019 Hi NIRDIs! @missy What an ordeal. I am relieved that you had help. What a truly heartwarming picture of Greg being his best fur baby dad! I am happy that you have been able to get out on the bike. Continuing sending you hugs, love and strength. @scaninavian I am so sorry you are struggling so. Hoping your mom feels better as time goes and she adapts to the meds. Sending healing and relaxing vibes your way. @Tekate congratulations on the property purchase. A Northeastener shouldn’t stand out there at all. Lol. But to be near that beautiful granddaughter is well worth it. Good luck with the sale of your ME home. @marcy Hope all is well and your week is flying by! Don’t we wish our lives away waiting for the weekend? Hope the gym is coming along fabulously. @AV_ Nice job gardening. I love having my hands in the dirt. Weed pulling, not so much. In fact, keep reading to see what I got in the garden last week! I am happy for you that you’ll be staying put. Must see the snow every year! It’s like the shore, a must! @junebug17 I hope you’re enjoying your time in S.C. Hope all is well! @Calliecake How are you feeling? What ever happened with scheduling the procedure. I maybe missed it? Be well! @Austina Oh my! Lucky you. Sounds like a fabulous vacation! Enjoy! I am enjoying my last full week of summer vacay and, let me tell you, it is a tad depressing. I am taking long walks and reading books of my choosing, a real luxury, as well as gardening. I know I am lucky to have the summers off but....still The face is healing and I think I’ll just hold right here with ‘fixes.’ Synthetic fillers for my ‘defect,’ as they call it, seem too risky for me. Plus, with the wedding six weeks away, we don’t need any mess ups at this point in time. THEN this past weekend I developed a red, swollen rash in the crook of my elbow. Seriously WTF? Good news is it is likely not Lyme, my first thoughts. Apparently spiders bite (do not google images ), Admittedly I was doing serious garden clean up and carrying it with bare arms. Now I am on antibiotics for that and I had to restart the c diff meds as a preventative. Sheesh. Can @Slick1 get a break already? You have to laugh or you’d cry. Thank you, as always, for letting me vent. Have a great week ladies!
