Haven’t posted cause my life is boring as fuck. I spend my days hobbling around like an old guy with knee and foot pains (Hey!) and not a whole lot to do cause I’m “retired.”
Oh, I make my bank runs and things like that; but mostly I hang around the house “doing things.” Nothing that really matters; but something. Yes, I usually start my day by making the bed. At least I accomplish one thing every day.
Wx has been fairly nice though. Cooler (to cold) in the morning but really nice in the afternoon. Have got to lay out a couple of times. Except for the crap going on with me I’ve been really enjoying our morning walks.
Need some help finishing up the front “stoop” (steps, porch, whatever) so a friend came over to give me an estimate for him to finish it. I can live with what he came up with so he’ll be starting tomorrow. Cool! Now I gotta hope rent gets paid.
The New Doctor Who.
Made overdone peanut butter cookies form my Schweetie today. Also made Pot Roast with mushrooms as a one-pot meal. It was pretty good and the meat wasn’t too tough.
Can you tell I’m just rambling now? That happens when you just live an ordinary every-day life in the US.
I could fill pages about my Renter right now; but I really think I ought not to.
Physically I’m going to shit. Mentally I’m the same as I’ve always been: Fucked Up. Sixty-six and I’m still trying to work it out.
Just not a lot going on around here. Foot and knee are still hurting. Get a headache every other day or so. It’s raining off and on. Getting colder and darker and, OH MY GOD, the Sun is going down! WTF?
Just kidding. Sorta. Really not a lot going on around here cause I’m still retired and just don’t get out much. Saturday date with SWMBO. BUT, I did get to go on a mid-week “date” with her last Wednesday. She had the day off to do Dental stuff and we spent the day together. Even made a COSTCO run.
Which really threw me off cause I kept thinking it was Saturday. I suppose if we had not eaten and gone shopping I wouldn’t have been confused! Getting Old.
My Renter is still driving me fookin’ nuts. I’m beginning to think she’s trying to get evicted. I know she’s having a hard time working and all (and Adulting), but if she’d come up and talk to me we could work something out. I’ve already agreed to lower the rent for two months while she looks for a roomie. But, without talking I have no idea what’s going on.
Meanwhile, rent is late every month and I usually have to remind her it’s due. I shouldn’t have to go to her for rent. She’s still behind for part of last month’s rent and electric and all I’ve heard is “I’m gonna do this …” but nothing’s done.
Not that it’s all bad. It’s just we don’t get along as well as we used to. And that kinda bums me out. (And NO Im not having those kind of fantasies!)
Anyway, that’s pretty much it for tonight. About 1930 I suddenly get really tired and my head will start to hurt. I hate Winter coming on!
Part of it is the immenent return of Winter. All that rain and cold and dark. Part of it is my Renter. Part of it is my Lovely-Young-Bride of almost 32 years. Part of it is I’m pretty tired of something hurting all the damned time. Part of it is that I spend WAY too much time alone. Part of it is that Im just fuckin’ Old.
Saw my new Doc last week. That was a waste of time. Could not get him off whatever his agenda was and on to what was bothering me. BAck in my day, if a patient had complained of foot or knee pain, we were taught to get them up on the exam table and actually DO an exam. Range of Motion, Does This Hurt? All that stuff.
Not this Doctor. Oh, sure, for the knee pain he said “probably degenerative osteo(someting). We could inject some steroids to see if that would help.” All this without an actual exam. He’s Good!
And, you’d think that when an OLD GUY says “I get chest pains in my upper left chest when I exert myself.” that the Doc would get one’s shirt off so he could listen to your heart and lungs. Nope. You’d be mistaken.
But he did order a echocardiogram and CT scan because I used to smoke.
Got My Tower Up! Mostly. Bunch of the guys came over the 22nd and spent about 3 hours getting it up. Rained the whole damn time! They did a fantastic job. Now I need to get the rotator ordered, antenna built and mounted and the last section up and I’ll be cooking with gas! I’ve tried climbing it. I can get about half way up before my knee hurts too much to go further, AND, even though my mind says I’m doing fine, my ASS says it ain’t going any farther. Stupid Ass!
NMARES meeting went really good tonight. Way more interesting than the South Club meetings.
Dang! Was so tired I forgot to post this last night.
