Days of Our Lives

Jenny took another movie of her goofy mom. I think I must have taken a pain pill or something because this is just hilarious. I am GORKED!

 But not everything has been funny. When the packages got here there was so much damage.
Because of the hurry to leave before the first, she didn't have time to sell things so she gave most of it away.

She did a great job packing. Hunny has been in trucking before and he gives good instructions. We purchased brand new moving boxes, paper and bubble wrap.

It got harder and harder to watch. Jen only kept her most sentimental things. She could only take so much and then the tears started. Broke my heart. Mom's hate to see their children suffer over anything at any age. It reminded me of the earthquake and how I felt when so many of my precious things were just demolished.

So we sat in the sun and talked. We left the boxes for later.
This is a Samsung flat screen TV or what is left of it. Her dishes, printer, DVD player, large TV and a ton of her Christmas ornaments were all broken. Yes, we are filing a claim, but who knows how long that will take. A lot of it is beyond price and not replaceable.

 All of this just to get here and help me. Really we need to help each other. I have needed a lot of help. My hunny's cousin helped me a lot. I paid her because I couldn't take that much time from someone for nothing. I have to be driven to my appointments and until recently I still had to have help getting dressed.
There is some really bad damage to my shoulder and I would sure like some answers. That's a whole nutha story.

So if it cheers her up to make funny videos of her mom she can do it all she wants too. I'll even post the pictures that are flattering beyond words. close ups.
Now I know how I'd look with a stroke. Can you believe this is a SUCCESSFUL medical procedure?
This is a sympathetic ganglion nerve block that is supposed to help my pain. If your face slides to the floor it has been done correctly. Well boy howdy, can't wait to see the bill for this mess.
In the morning this lovely look was gone, so were my nerves all the rest of them. Please pass the Xanex. In it's place the bones in my face felt like they had connected with a baseball bat, modern scientific medicine. How marvelous. I can't tell if it did me any good. I'm supposed to do this 3 times. I don't think so. I'm really not impressed enough to do it again. It's probably a 4 digit bill.

I did wake up from these drugs starving and practically ate an entire blueberry salad by myself.
I knew I shouldn't have ever had that recipe in my hot little hands. I can't leave that stuff alone!
I wasn't supposed to eat for 2 hours and then start on ice chips. As soon as we got out of the parking lot I made Jennifer drive through Backyard Burger and get something to eat and drink. I was ravenous.
I told her I could swallow and I didn't care what the dang instructions said. That's a nurse for ya.
I was under the influence of some powerful stuff.  I could have eaten an entire turkey, or a horse for that matter. IF I didn't know it was a horse.

Since I'm talking about being wacky and random, for fun I thought I'd show you our yard in the first years we were here. Basically it was grass and that one Bradford Pear tree. Jim built the shed and that's what we were excited about. It really amazes me to see it so empty. You can accomplish a lot in 10 years. Unless your Kat over at Seeking Sanity who has her place looking spectacular in less than a year or maybe one year, but y'all know how amazing she is.

It's almost Thanksgiving and I am thankful for so much. My face didn't stay that way. I am thankful most of all for my family and friends. I am very thankful to all of you who have prayed for Jennifer and helped her financially. I am amazed at the support that is in our blogging community. Y'all are real friends. Jennifer was very touched. Her children are so sweet and we will have some fun stories coming up soon I am sure.

I have the green light to try and use my hands and arm conservatively, whatever that means. I hope to be around more often now. There is no telling what kind of condition I might be in. You never knew what you'd get before and now with my daughter here, she will really mix it up. She loves to laugh and so do I.

See ya soon!

Oh no! So many of her things broken. That is just heartbreaking. Really. I'm so sorry.

You have done such an amazing job on that yard! WOW. What a difference. (and we had quite a bit of help so don't think I did that all by myself. i definitely don't get the credit)

I am sending prayers your way that you get some answers on your pain and then also relief from that pain. Hang in there!!!!
