|That's the "bed hair" from my flu days.|
BY THE WEEKEND I was starting to feel better and pretty much back to normal. Even though I had had a flu shot in October I was disappointed that I did get the flu; but, on the other hand maybe the bout would have been worse if I hadn't gotten the shot - so there might have been a little protection there. Next year I do want to insist on the "senior" dosage as that is what I have had in the past.
THIS PAST WEEK I have been having episodes with my ears. They feel like they are full and the tinnitus in my right ear is louder; then, they feel okay, then back again. I have had tinnitus in both ears since the age of 3 so it's part of my life. But, these two little things are picking up sounds I haven't heard before (like the squeaks my chair is making now as I move around) - super sensitive too. At least I don't need the TV turned up as loud.
IN EARLY FEBRUARY, it will be 2 years since I was bestowed with my pacemaker and an extended life. I choke up when I think about that and how happy I am to be able to continue my life with my family and friends in it, to my Casita friends, to my blogger friends and anyone else I meet along the way. I am looking looking forward to what is to come. . . . .
IN EARLY MARCH, it will be one year since Geri and Chuck contacted me about buying their then home here in TorC. Originally, my plan in 2013 was to prepare the house to be put on the market - repairs, painting, getting rid of junk, packing all those things that we didn't need in our day-to-day living. Then I would meet with a realtor in January 2014 and go from there, living in the house until it was sold. The only thing I was having trouble with was when the house sold, where were we going in 30 days! We wanted to move to New Mexico, but where?
IN STEP GERI AND CHUCK - they settled the where (Thank you). Okay, the rest of the planning for the year progressed into Plan B, C, D, E and a few others. We met with the realtor in June to put the house on the market, lived in the house until late September and hurried all the other prep activities in between. So far the house has had little activity.
And so, the third week of January begins. . . . .
