It's Saturday afternoon. I rarely blog on Saturday afternoons or any weekend for that matter.
Two family members are sick. I think I may be too but I prefer to ignore these inconveniences.
You don't have to read this if you don't feel like it. As my title reads, I'm just rambling. Had to use spell check for "rambling". I'm a pretty good speller but never won any awards for it so I do like spell check sometimes. But there are those times that spell check doesn't understand me. That's frustrating. Has that happened to you? I end up thinking, "To hell with it." and use a different word.
My husband came home this morning for the weekend. He is sick and cranky. He likes to drink beer on the weekend. I am going to make him a cocktail. I have some giant lemons and some vodka. I can make a very good Vodka Lemon cocktail. They are small and tasty. They will help him sleep.
I didn't sleep well last night. Been up since 4:00 A.M. I couldn't breathe very well and my carpal tunnel was acting up badly. I am going for a visit with the ortho doctor next week. We will schedule the right hand surgery then. Hopefully I can get the left hand done shortly after. I miss crocheting. I haven't been able to do it for awhile now. It's always been my number one creative outlet. I wish my girls would let me teach them more. They know a few basics, chain stitch, single crochet. But I would love to teach them to read patterns before I die.
My mother was 72 when she passed away from a heart attack. Her second one. She was healthier than I am. This runs through my head a lot. I'm 53.
It's funny how your mind works with things like that. Mom liked to crochet too. I taught her the basics. She could read patterns to an extent. Not hard one's though. I miss her. I can't believe it will be three years this December since she passed. I wonder if she watches over me. I would like to believe she does.
It rained here last night. Remnants of Hurricane Issac. It may rain on and off all weekend. It doesn't bother me. We have been in a drought after all. I would like to go for a walk in the rain. I want to go four wheeling in the mud. I went four wheeling last weekend. By myself. I did it. It was quite exciting. And freeing. At first I found it a bit hard to turn and was afraid I would tip over. But after awhile, I just wanted to go for miles and miles. I want to go again. My son has a four wheeler at his house in the country. I know he wouldn't care if I went out there and did it.
My son and his wife have split up again. I don't know what is going to happen, if it's permanent or not. My heart aches for him. And my Daughter-In-Law. I love her too. But it is what it is. I just want everyone to find peace and happiness in their lives.
This has had me very down lately. Understandably. I was feeling down and extremely tired the past few weeks. And sore. My doctor raised my dosage of my cholesterol pill. He doubled it. I couldn't take it anymore so I called him last week to complain. I said, "I can't take it anymore!". Whats the point of lowering my cholesterol a few points if all I want to do is sleep and ache all the time? So he cut me back. After the first day I felt much better. Also started taking B Complex. I have much more energy again. So I may not live as long as he'd like but at least I can do things and have fun now.
Oh my gosh, everyone is sneezing and moaning.
I think I am going to have a cocktail or two myself tonight. Maybe that will help me sleep too. On a good note, since everyone is sick, I will have time to read everyone's posts.
Oh and speaking of Blog posting, I am just going to spit it out. O.K. here goes. I'm not reading anymore posts that contain all politics. I'm tired of hearing about the election. I'm not interested in hearing about it anymore. I always vote. I always read up on the candidates. I was a Board of Elections Judge for three years. I canvassed the neighborhoods on foot. I did my stint. The one thing I've learned is this, anyone can promise anything. It means little if nothing. The fact of the matter is actions speak louder than words and there is no way of knowing the outcome until after the winner has been elected.
It doesn't excite me anymore. So please don't take offense if I don't read political posts. I'm not one of those people that don't vote and then complains when things don't work out as promised. I vote every election. I just don't want it jammed down my throat 24/7 until November.
I'm sorry if this offends anyone but I do have the freedom of speech, well at least for now!
Well I think my husband wants some attention so I guess that's enough Rambling for now. I hope everyone has a fun weekend. I'll be by for a visit soon. Take care and be safe, Love Di ♥
