What a Week!

 

         Friday night's comfort food meal...I served this with fresh apple slices.


   What a week e have had!  It has been a jumble of so many things and it left me in a huge Fibromyalgia flare once again.  

                                    SHEESH!!!!!


   The weekend was a total blur for me...I think we stayed home and rested for the most part.  Monday morning came and after only getting 2 hours of sleep, I went for a mammogram in the morning.  Luckily they let Jeff into the hospital building with after seeing me with my cane and me telling them that he IS my caregiver.  That seems to be the magic word, so he as able to wait in the lobby area while I had my imaging done.  Once we got home, I laid down for awhile and took a on and off again nap because I was really sore and tired.  The hospital called to tell me that everything was fine with my mammogram...thank God!  I always get really nervous about it after prior bad experiences.

   

   The weather decided to misbehave and we had high winds Monday and Tuesday night with damaging even higher winds on Wednesday night into Thursday morning.  I don't sleep well at all with high winds as they seem to wake me up a lot and the changes in the weather really put me in a lot of pain.  We did hot tub for awhile on Wednesday night and that helped a bit with the pain, but oh my goodness. It just left me exhausted!


   Wednesday late morning, Chris, Bradley and Isaiah came over for awhile to visit us and Uncle Bob.  Again, I was going on about 3 hours of sleep when they arrived.  We had a lovely visit with pizza for lunch, lots of cuddles and laughter.  Jeff and I both headed back to bed after they left in the early afternoon.  I got another 2 hours of sleep.


   Thursday was a rough one.  I could not fall asleep until Jeff got home from work at 5:30 in the morning.  Then I slept fitfully.  I finally got up for 2 hours and then was right back to bed for another nap.  By 10:30 p.m. I was back in bed and took another nap for about 2 hours.  So much pain!  Jeff got home around 4:30 on Friday morning and I still could not sleep until about 7:30a.m. ish.  


   Friday afternoon found us running errands and picking up some groceries.  We stopped at the Dollar Tree and our grandson Steven spotted us out the window of the daycare located next to it and was waving at us.  We had not seen him in person for about 2 months due to covid so we stopped (masked up) and asked if we could visit with him quickly.  The daycare was so good to let us do that and we shared hugs and we asked him about his new car seat that he was so excited about getting the day before.  He was a little shy at first, but ran back to us to give us another hug before he returned to his classroom.  Apparently the first thing he did when his daddy picked him up was tell him we had come to see him! 😊  I think we made his day!  After we left him, we headed to the grocery store to do the rest of our shopping.  Oh...my...goodness...the college students are definitely back and it was a madhouse in there and the parking lots were even worse. Some of the students were refusing to wear masks and the store was not enforcing  it's own rules that require you to wear one.  Jeff was NOT happy about that at all since I am high risk and the cases are going up like crazy with the students back.  We got what we needed and left.  Jeff really wanted Panda Express for dinner but the rude college students were running in front of our car when we were trying to park and another car almost hit us going down the wrong way!  As we finally got out of our car, the college students ran out in front of us again to get to the line before we could.  Jeff was absolutely livid with them by this time.  We got back in our car and just came home where I fixed the quick meal you see at the top of this post.  


   Jeff is now at work and I am sitting here relaxing and being very thankful that:

 1. The week has come to an end work wise for Jeff after his shift tonight.

2. We got to see 3 of the grandboys and Chris this week.

3. We now have a set date for Josh, Lauren and Tate to come visit us next month (we finally get to meet our newest grandson!!!).

4. The wind is not blowing like crazy tonight making the cold weather even colder.

5. We are having lunch with Chris, Heather, Bradly and Isaiah on Sunday at their house and I have some very excited big grandboys because I promised to bring homemade mac and cheese for part of the lunch.

6.  My pain levels are tolerable and not putting me into bed for the majority of the night and day today.  Very nice change from the rest of the week.


   Be blessed and know that as crazy as the world is right now, God is still in control and wants us to be wise stewards of all He has given and shown us.  He never said we would not see troubled days, but He did promise to be right there to help see us through them.

  1. Your comfort meal looks delicious. We were having a snow advisory all day, the wind blew, but only a little snow fell. Thank goodness. My body had total exhaustion all day Thursday,and my legs ached so much, and I had a dull headache. I think my body is like a giant barometer of weather change. I believe I saw a weather forecast that said it will be cloudy until Monday. Bleh.

    I haven't had a mammogram in a long time. The last time I had one they bruised not only my breasts, but my chest bone area just above the breasts really, really bad. Doctors misunderstand when I tell them that I was really badly bruised the last time I had it done. I believe they think it was just a bit of bruising and a little pain. It was a lot of both. There has got to be a better way. I have had bone marrow taken out the back of my pelvic bone twice, and two knee replacements, and those procedures were painful but not as painful as that mammogram.

    What a fun surprise to see your grandson at daycare! We have a new grand daughter as of December 30, 2020, and a 10 year old grandson who is her big brother. We haven't gone to see them yet. I would like to have a quick outdoor visit, but it's been too cold for the baby to be outside. My grandson goes to school, and our son in law has a high risk job, so I and my husband think it is safer for us to visit outdoors. Usually there is a January thaw here in St Louis for a few days toward the end of January, and then after a few days of that we go back to harsh winter. I'm hoping to go visit them during the January thaw short time of warmer weather.

    My husband worked nights for about 40 years, he is retired now, but our schedule was that way for so long, we still pretty much carry on the same way, except on doctor appointment days, or for funerals.

    Have a great week!
