Good Morning, first I have to tell you about yesterday. I awoke from a deep sleep, took my cpap mask off, was standing so I could hang it up and right in front of me on my lovely sating yellow curtains were two grasshoppers. Not expecting them to be inside and at eye level, I screamed and slumped to the flower and skinned my knees on the carpet. After about a minute I could stand again, now that I knew they were there it was okay, I grabbed each one in a kleenex and tossed them out the back door. You see these kinds of things happen to me alot. So now I had to go and clean up my knees, not much you can do for a rug burn. So that was the start of my day. LOL. It was beautiful out, so off I go outside after breakfast to put little pieces of gray rock in beside my sidewalk blogs...So I have a stool to kneel on, it has metal brackets on it so I can help myself get back up. So no problem I have the tools for the job. I may have been doing this for two minutes, when all of a sudden I felt the sharpest pain under my right arm . I look and there is a wasp hanging from my skin. It was instinct to wipe it away and when I did it hurt like a darn, and I kinda jumped backand hit my head on the other chair. This kinda struck me funny as I was thinking, what is going to happen next, and down I went again, so I lay there for a few minutes, both dogs trying to kiss my face, what with all the excitement and noise going on. They thought this is going to be an exciting day, tails were awagging. Anyway now I have a bump on my head, a sore arm. two excited dogs, and I am thinking,,,better be careful today. I must be overtired because they usually don't start so early in the day, so I knew I would need a rest soon. Anyway I rested for a bit, then back outside to sit peacefully on my deck, I have a chair that is designated as my chair, I sat down and the sharpest pain on my left butt cheek I have ever felt...but this time I knew what it was so I did not fall down. I am a short little round bottom babe, it was hard to find the wasp let enough to make sure the stimger was out. After managing this I then went to find Benydryl in the house as I knew with two I might have an alergic reaction! I found polysporin to put on both bites and I rested...I swear this was a true story...When my husband came home, I told him all about my day and he laughed and laughed and got me laughing. Thank goodness I was sitting down, because then my head just kinda slumps forward. We were both in bed at 9 tonight. I need my rest...because tommorrow I am going on my first outing alone in 5 years. I am being dropped off at a Medical Lab to have a mammogram done. This is my very first one, after that I have to have some blood work done and a chest xray, then I will take a cab home. I have heard so many stories about mammograms how they make your breasts look like pancakes, I am taking my cane because if I am clamped in, if somethng strikes me funny I better have it for support. I don't want to report that I was clamped in, and something was said and now my breasts are two feet longer than normal. At my age I am starting to have enough of that as a problem already! Reminds me of a card, a little old lady goes to put on her bra, has to bend over and roll them up to put them in her bra...It was kinda cute. So wish me well on my outing tommorrow, and I know the importance of havng a mammogram. It really is not a laughing matter, but I am just telling you, this is my life through my eyes. I hope you all have a great day!
P.S...Today was my best day! Positive, positive. Note to self...redefine best day. I must go to sleep so I am ready for my outing...Note to self...I will be fine on my outing tommorrow, afterall what could possible go wrong in a medical building. Note to self....Sleep in in the morning.!
