I have no ideas for a title today...

One more day till I see the consultant. One more. It is now 6 weeks since I wrecked my knee. Oh, the miracles of modern medicine. The speed is so astounding it takes my breath away.

I have been up since the wee hours again, and I have just looked at the hair. I have decided that curls and waves are "in". The humidity makes my hair do weird things. Or should that be "wired"..... both are completely appropriate right now. I look like the wild woman of Borneo. And no, you are absolutely NOT going to be seeing what a vision of staggering perfection I am.


I have no news. Life is not exactly a whirlwind of excitement here on the couch. I could take photos of my toes. Or the book I am trying to read. Every time I get past the first page (all of 12 lines) I fall asleep. I could also take photos of the dust. Or the carpet which needs vacuuming. Or the cobwebs. I am sure they are there, but I need my glasses to see. The remote control for the tv. My mobile phone.

Hmmmmm. I am clutching at straws here. So instead, here is a list of a few things I am particularly thankful for:
  1. That I am going to be a Granny in February!
  2. It is cooler today
  3. My son still makes me coffee without complaint after 6 weeks (after he wakes upthat is, and it is now 11.01am - not that I am in a hurry or anything)
  4. Chatting to my daughter both on the phone and on messenger
  5. My couch - am I ever glad we got the 2 couches!

And I am going back to the couch right now. If I wear sunglasses I won't be able to see any of the dust.

Oops - I have just remembered that I a) have been tagged to do a meme and b) have a couple fo awards I need to pass on. Tomorrow. I will do it tomorrow.

It's going to be nearly 38C here today. Your 20C sounds pretty good to me!

I'm going to do a sugar test today. Two hours of drinking sickly sweet goo and being poked to have blood drawn. I still have to be "officially diagnosed" with diabetes before my insurance will pay for my testing supplies and medication.

I feel your pain regarding getting anything done medically speaking. Especially them getting in any kind of a hurry!

Hope you get something done tomorrow and get a course of treatment settled upon to get you back on your feet and healing!

Love and hugs,


PS: I had to make my own coffee, but I've already got mine. ;o)

Has the boy no mercy? Past eleven and still no coffee? I'd be sunk.

Hang in there, Linds. Tomorrow will be a better day!

Hello, Linds --
Thanks for your encouraging words on my blog. I can always use more friends who "get it" and walk this path with me.
And I can always use more blogs to read!!

I will be sending good vibes in your direction tomorrow for the appointment. Guess I will have to do it in my sleep since you are 8 hours ahead of us!!!! Six weeks is absolutely ridiculous to have to wait for this appointment.

You need one of those coffee pots on a timer so your son could make the coffee the night before and it would be ready for you when you awoke.

Morning Glory said...

You poor dear! If I was there, I'd do all those house chores for you and even shine your sunglasses!

I'm not sure I could make it to 11:01 a.m. without coffee!!! Can you get it ready the night before and set a timer on the coffee maker? (if it has one)

Jan said...

Just keep your chin up and know that soon you'll be up and around and making your own coffee at a more preferred hour! LOL!
Hugs to you...

Isabelle said...

I'm so sorry about your knee - hope that consultant has a magic wand - but but but your impending Grannytude is so excellent! Who needs knees?

Actually, on second thoughts, grannies probably do. For dandling grandchildren on.

I wish I were a granny. Sigh.

Linda said...

Oh Linds, I'm so sorry this is dragging on soooo long. I can only imagine how tired of it all you are.
But that new granny business - now that really is something to be thankful for. Perhaps you can come up with a brilliant plan for a baby quilt.
Praying you get everything taken care of and mend soon Linds.

My, Son needs to set the clock to make coffee then he can go back to bed. I would be having withdrawals, and on the warpath. LOL.
I wake up very slowly. I have to have my coffee.
I hope the Dr has something good to say tomorrow.You are due some good luck.
God bless,

Needled Mom had a good idea about the timed coffee pot! Just think, waking up to the aroma of good coffee!

Will be thinking of you as you go to your appointment! Hope it all goes well!! :o)
