I can't believe a week has gone by without an entry from me. Time is such an interesting thing. It slows down when it wants and speeds up when you need more of it. This week started out pretty stressful for me. for the first time in my life I dialed 911 and let me tell you, I had to be really scared to do that for myself. I truly thought I was having a heart attack. I was sitting in my recliner with Gizmo asleep in my lap and I had just started watching the new "Hulk" movie when... all of a sudden my heart started racing and my chest tightened up (no pain at all, just tightness) and I felt like I might pass out. I pushed Giz off my lap and sat up straight hoping it would go away. It didn't so I reached for the phone a dialed. Just as I was dialing my neighbor Danny knocked on the door and yelled "I have homemade oatmeal cookies". LOL. If I hadn't been so scared I would have laughed. Anyway, in less than 5 minutes (I love my little town) I had a living room full of police and paramedics checking me out. At the hospital they took every test imaginable and it was not my heart. The only thing they can figure out is that my thyroid medicine was not nearly strong enough and that is what caused the episode. Anyway, I just told a long story to say I am fine and have not had any problems since. I have just kind of taken it easy all week.
I wrapped most of my gifts this week. I just lack a few things. I got a 'kid-sized' skateboard for Brandon and haven't figured out how I'm going to wrap it yet. My little apartment looks Christmasy with the little tree and my beautiful porcelain nativity set. I also have a crocheted Santa that an on-line friend made me last year. You put a coffee can in it and fill it with goodies. (Thank you again Carol.) And I want to again thank Linda in Washington for the book and the calendar. I will read the book after I finish with "Cross Country" by Patterson.
Tuesday I go back for my second epidural steroid injection for my back. It's still not where I would like it to be, but maybe this second injection will do the trick. I really thought I would grow old gracefully but so far, not so much...lol.
Almost forgot to tell you, we had SNOW this week. About 2 inches. It was not predicted and even as it fell the local weather lady was saying we MIGHT see a little snow mixed in the rain. Boy, did she miss it this time. Of course, it caused the schools to be closed yesterday and the kids loved that. Everyone gets so excited when we get any snow because we get so little and some years, none. I can't ever remember seeing snow here in December. Most of it has melted now, but it sure was pretty for a while.
OK, enough rambling. I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
