Getting Back to Normal Life

Sorry for being away so long. I’ve been really sick with everything hitting at once. I’m back on the road to “normal’ for me. Today is a plus day.

We’ve had a water leak at the house for about 2 weeks now. Yesterday it was fixed

water repair
Here’s what they had to do to repair the leak in the water system going to our house. They did a great job of restoring everything the way it was.

It’s amazing that the water lines aren’t that deep. I guess I’m still used to New York where all the lines were 3 feet deep. They also use PVC here – not copper. Hopefully we’ll have move away before the system gives way again.

 

 

As for me, the more pain that I have the less I want to live. Yesterday when everything was going wrong I wanted to kill myself. Instead, I did the write thing and got ahold of the doctor. It’s amazing that his advice worked. So, I’m still here struggling but doing the best I can. I treasure our friends – they know me well and don’t take any crap from me

I Can’t Believe It!

All around me people have been ill with some kind of: cold, virus or plague. I’ve been proud of myself for avoiding it; until today. My joints hurt, throat sore, congested nose, etc. Today is a minus day. I will not miss Thanksgiving. My Sister-in-Law and my Nephew are coming for a visit. I will not miss them.

I’m taking it slow today and send my best to all  for a Happy Thanksgiving.

Another Day Without Water

Talk about insanity, today makes day 7 where we’ve had a long period of time without water. As I’ve said before, the infrastructure here is crumbling. On Monday we reported that out water supply was leaking. It’s still leaking.

Today is a plus day. My Knees are feeling much better! I can’t express what a difference this makes in my life. I have a great deal of difficulty moving because of the problems in my back and Diabetic loss of feeling in my feet and legs. Today I’m able to move around a bit.

Charlie is having great fun with his new friend Sam (a 1 year old Golden Retriever). They chase each other in the dog park and love playing with each other. They both have learned to put their entire heads in a large container of water. They’re a real hoot. When Charlie comes home he’s completely exhausted.

Happy Birthday Susan

Today is a minus day. I’m in a great deal of pain. My Pancreas is doing it’s usual thing but the pain in my knees is off the charts. I’m having difficulty walking & trust me, that’s no fun. I texted my doctor about it yesterday but haven’t received a reply.

This afternoon we’re going to see my Sister to see my Sister and help celebrate her birthday.

Relaxing Day

I’m having a plus day. I’ve “borrowed” this system from my good friend Liz. A plus day means I’m doing the best I can and that given my limitations all is well. A minus day means the opposite of a plus day.

We were able to borrow a friends golf cart and I was able to make the rounds and visit with friends. I forgot to take video but will try and remember the next time. Charlie met his new friend Sam (an 11 month old Golden Retriever. They went in the dog park and had a great time playing. It was so much fun to watch! Sam would try and flip Charlie with his nose and Charlie fit perfectly underneath Sam and would just mess with him.

Say It Isn’t So – We Have All Utilities

It’s UNBELIEVABLE! We actually have all utilities working this morning. I’m so anxious I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop <LOL>.

Yesterday I had an incredibly bad pain day. Today, now that I have all my pills in me my pain level is a 7 and I’m doing okay. I have plans to try and clean-up my desk and go to my favorite website Goulet Pens.I’m a fountain pen fanatic and am always looking to see what the latest pens are. Brian and Rebecca Goulet do a fantastic job and even have a great You Tube channel

Water – Yes, Internet – No

The good news is that we have water. The bad news is that the Internet is down. I continue to assert that the infrastructure of Gold Canyon RV & Golf Resort is falling apart. The “Resort” is over 25 years old and other than replacing bits and pieces, there has been no substantial work done to update the infrastructure. Four hours later the Internet was available.

I’m also finding that people were my friends as long as I had a “positive” attitude about the “Park” but want nothing to do with me when I speak the truth. Believe it or not, Facebook has caused me to lose friends.  Because I took the action of removing all the members of the “Park” from my Facebook page, they no longer want anything to do with me (how petty).

Because of all of the above I’m in excruciating pain! My pain level is 10 and I’m quickly losing the will to live.

No Water Wednesday

Today marks the 6th day we’ve had no water for a period of time. We received a notice saying the water would be out at 9:00 AM. We received the message at 9:20 AM. Fortunately the outage was short.Gold Canyon RV & Golf Resort has never acknowledged any wrongdoing in this six day process, and, as far as I know, never brought in a professional company to fix it.

I had 2 very severe Pancreatitis attacks last night. During the first one my body went completely rigid and in addition to the Pancreatic (10+) pain I had cramps throughout my body. Fortunately the second attack wasn’t as bad and I was able to fall asleep afterwords.

I’m still struggling with WordPress (especially themes). If anyone could offer help I’d greatly appreciate it.

pencils
Back to elementary school I go. Coloring in “adult” (not dirty) coloring books provide some therapy for me.
