Friday Ken and I drove to Indiana to spend the day with Vicki on Saturday. We returned late Saturday. Friday was also my last day of work until August 8. I printed off several manuscripts to edit while I’m on vacation. I have the edits made on paper but need to put them on the computer.
It was a tough drive for me on Friday. My pain level was high and I was tired. We had detours, construction, and impatience. The drive which should have taken five hours took six and a half. On the way back, we came a different route and it took four and a half.
This morning I finished the manuscripts and I’ve been working on bills, budget, and a variety of other things. Sitting at my desk, being organized, and getting stuff done is necessary but I’m antsy to get back to the recliner to enter the edits in my files and work on covers, descriptions etc.
The nice thing, I noticed yesterday my pain level was down. I didn’t have swollen ankles, sore knees, or sore hands. I might even be able to manage to crochet again. I can make fists with both my hands. Now whether this is from the drugs or the inactivity – no clue – but I’m feeling better.
Next on my list is to keep grumbling at the doctor’s office. I have called every day, left a message, and not gotten a call back. If they don’t do a letter for me, I will end up paying for a new scooter on my own. This is disheartening because I really can’t afford the new scooter on my own. I’ll figure it out if I have to but… I’d rather not have to.
Good news for the week – I went to defer my student loans in order to afford the scooter and discovered I’m paid up until February. This means I don’t have to make a payment and I’m not going into deferment. Both good things. Also, Ken is going to visit the girls in October. I went looking for a ticket for him and got it for under $200 total. This is a great price! It makes it much more affordable.
The rest of my week will involve a lot more writing tasks. I am hoping to spend some quality time getting items out and promoting them. Fingers crossed!
