Weekend Roundup

That was a fast weekend! Friday I did my first in the series of three sessions of pain shots. I talked about it a little on my FB and hate to bore everyone with a repeat of the details. I’m still a little sore from having six needles inserted into the neck joints and moved around to position correctly, and I’m continuing to experience some nerve pain, but it may improve. I was also told that it may take at least two times before I feel real relief. I’m going to try to schedule the second set of shots, which is a little tricky as we’re going through a health insurance change in October.

So much of my weekend was resting and watching dog training videos which is one of my weird obsessions :-)

Yesterday I went out for a walk and got to meet a new dog-friend. I’m not sure of his breed, maybe a pit bull and lab mix? It was hard to tell but he had beautiful brindle coloring and was super friendly with excellent manners. He was off leash in a front yard with his people. Off leash is something I’m normally not thrilled about (as much for the dog’s safety as people’s), but this dog was a sweetheart. I kind of hoped he’d follow me home, but nope, he was too well-behaved, darn it.

Sunday I tried to work, and frustration set in, which resulted in:

I made chocolate oatmeal cookies. They taste okay. Normally, I’d prefer oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but I didn’t have any chocolate chips and was too lazy to go to the story. But I still ate enough.

Too much really.

Yeah, let’s not talk about that. Or about how much it hurt my arm to stir the oats into the batter.

So that was my weekend, how was yours?

    I’m crossing everything that this treatment works for you. :hugs: Yay for a new dog friend! And cookies! They look yummy.

    Okay, we won’t talk about your stirring effecting your arm if we don’t talk about fishing effecting my ankle. Deal?

    I spent most of the weekend confused about whether it was a weekend. My days are totally messed up again. I know this is Monday, but it totally doesn’t feel like Monday. I keep thinking it’s Tuesday. Blerg. Otherwise, it was good here. I read, I fished, I watched golf and home shows (building, remodeling, selling, etc.) for the most part. Caught an old Jimmy Stewart movie we’d never seen. Stuffs like that.

    Like B.E., crossing everything the new treatment works and UGH! on the insurance change. I have to sign up for Medicare this fall and I ignore probably 15 calls a day from the spammers. :roll:

    There was a weekend. I mostly worked, though we met the kids for lunch yesterday and for a visit with one of the last sailors who served on the USS Enterprise during WWII. I also finally caught up with last season’s LUCIFER shows, just in time for the new season next week. OMG! I remember now why I love that show.

    I finished off Patricia Briggs’ Mercy Thompson series and B.E.’s WISH HITS THE FAN. Both are/were awesome!

    Good news is, I think I have Roman and Verity straightened out and some semblance of a timeline for the plot. If I work diligently, I hope to have the first draft down by Oct. 1st. Which would be nice since I plan on making this puppy live on Halloween. :lol:

    Hang in there, and here’s to a good/productive week for all of us!

    Keeping positive thoughts and energy going your way that the shots do the trick. Has the tenderness subsided? I hope so. Hate going from one pain to another.

    Insurance is such a pain. I hope it goes smooth in the change over and all your treatments stay approved.

    A new puppy friend :)!

    Your cookies look good. They kind of remind me of no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies. I used to make them all the time as a kid.

    I hope you’re having a great day!

    B.E., uh oh, now I’m wondering about your ankle. Hope it’s okay!

    I hate losing track of my days too.

    Glad you had a good weekend and hope your ankle is feeling better.

    Silver, I feel for you on the spammers!

    Yay for seeing the kids and having a good weekend, and a TV show that gives you much needed down time.

    Yay for getting Roman to submit, or at least behave :-) We’ll both have to work diligently!

    Hope you had a great start to your week!

    Viki, it’s hard to tell yet as the shots caused some swelling we’re waiting to fully subside. I’m just over it all. But meeting the dog on my walk really was a sweet moment.

    The cookies are pretty good if you’re in the mood for chewy. I haven’t make the no bake ones in years!

    Hope your week is getting off to a good start!
