My ex son-in-law tried to put me in the middle of something last night and I didn't let him. He is beginning to get on my last nerve and I may just have to let him know that he isn't fooling me with his holier than thou foolishness. He should also know that he will not succeed in getting me to think my daughter thinks talking on the phone with Someone is more important than her son's health insurance. It is T's responsibility and he left it to the last minute, then expected K to jump when he wanted her to. Tried to get me to call her to tell her about it. I wouldn't. I'm OVER IT.

I just received an email today letting me know that an acquaintance of mine has had a stroke. She is much younger than I. Fortunately her husband was with her and recognized the signs. He drove her to the hospital that was only 5 miles away. She's in ICU....slurred speech and her left arm not moving. Hopefully she will recover fully and can go on her one vacation a year to the tropics.
It makes me wonder if living alone is a good idea. I wish I had the money to build that other house so daughter and grandson could move up here. Someday. I'm lucky that I don't get sick often. This latest bug has really gotten me and I'm going to try to see my doctor today to see if there is anything that can be done about this cough. Last night was tiring and I want to be able to sleep lying down, not sitting up. Good thing I don't have much of a social life.

I'm fighting a cold....not the usual kind...nope, this one headed straight for the chest. So I won't get my hair trimmed today. My hair dresser's wife is preggers and I don't want to give her my germs. Hopefully it will be mostly gone by Friday when I have to have some nasty dental work done. Apparently I have some bone loss in my upper and lower jaw bones due to tartar build up under the gum line. Sooooo I get to have it all scraped off and hopefully the bone will grow back. Looks like I'll be chewing on the opposite side for a while. Oh boy.
I hate having a cold. It interferes with all kinds of stuff I want to do.
The sun is shining this morning and there is a fog floating up off the ground. I can see the fairy webs in the grass. Somehow they disappear before I can get out there with a camera. Hmmmm.
Have much to do so I'd better get to it.

I read my ex son-in-law's post this morning. What a pile of..... If he misses them so much why doesn't he call his son? Why doesn't he call and ask if my daughter will bring him to visit? He says he can't feel one of his legs due to a pinched nerve or some such yet he's going down to the airport with his friend to pick up his friend's brother. Instead of moving temporarily upstairs he makes his mother (in whose house he now lives) go up and down stairs. And she is definitely no spring chicken. He whines about his situation but does nothing about it. His best friend lost his job, too, but has be pro-active and found work....he started his own business. I no longer have any respect for T and don't care if he knows it. He needs to stop feeling sorry for himself and get on with life. I wonder what Marissa thinks of all this?

I'll be gone for a week beginning Sunday. Lots to do before that. Probably won't be writing anything while I'm gone although I will have the computer with me. I hate coming home to a gazillion e-mails. Daughter and grandson may invade this place so I need to do at least some surface cleaning. Not today, though. Going to the gallery for at least half the day, then doctor's appointment. Apparently he needs to talk to me about the bone density test I had. Osteopenia (sounds almost lewd).....it's not osteoporosis....yet. I'm now taking calcium and vitamin D to prevent further loss hopefully and, if I'd get up off my ass and exercise, I could prevent it that way, too. Oh well, I'll do my walking every day after lunch while I'm away. One mile a day. Maybe I'll lose a couple of pounds. I want to.
It's another beautiful day and I'm going to enjoy it to the fullest.
