Well, let's give a cheery hello to Friday, aka Thursday if you're working my schedule. This means I get to go to work today and tomorrow, followed by what seems to be my regular weekend, at least for the next 2 weeks. After that my weekend moves to Monday and Tuesday for 2 weekends. Two weeks after that I go part-time.
My eye exam went well. In fact, yesterday was just a quick in and out to check my eye pressure and vision. Wearing my glasses, I am better then 20 / 20, which is odd since personally, I don't think I see that well. All the testing and the dilation will happen on March 3, 2022.
With my back issues, I find mornings are the only time things can be painfully bad. A full 45 minutes with a heating pad is needed to sooth away the night's stiffness. After that, everything is pretty much ducky dandy. Heating pads have become my 'go to' friends. I have 2, one upstairs and the other downstairs. I've also ordered a portable one to take to work for those long afternoons. It should be arriving Saturday. Not a lot of meds here. In fact, if there were a way to strap a heating pad on while I sleep, I'm sure mornings would be no problem.
The water in the basement is gone. My house rests on a 116 year old stone foundation. During heavy rains, the water rushes in from the back while slowly draining out of the front. I do have a pump should I need one, but that's rarely been the case. What I really need, in fact, what everybody in this area needs is no more rain. Damn. The rain never seems to end. Nothing has a chance to dry out. As a result, we are living in mosquito hell. They are everywhere. So much so, I've bought a Citronella candle to keep them away.
