Good morning! Here is a “week in my life” vlog during a really nice fall week here in Tennessee. Little snippets of life during the work week and lots of activity on the weekend. We go yard sailing, do a freezer dive, and I share our foliage with you at the end on a beautiful breezy fall day.
You can watch the video HERE.
I’m struggling this morning with pain in my abdomen. At times it is very severe. It’s like contractions almost. It comes in waves and then goes away and then comes back. This started yesterday afternoon after eating Hattie B’s hot chicken. George is fine, so it’s likely a diverticulitis attack trying to happen, so I’m switching to liquids today. The plan is to alternate between hot and cold liquids. I think I got dehydrated a bit yesterday as we were busy all day with Christmas Village and I had very little water all day, still took my BP meds which have a water pill in them which probably further dehydrated me. This has been very painful, almost unbearable. Acetaminophen knocks the edge off.
It’s really sad because we have no plans today and I really wanted to get some things off my plate today as most other weekends are busy from here throughout with stuff going on or people in town. But it is what it is. I’ve prayed about it and asked God to relieve the pain and give me my day back. We’ll see what happens.
I’ll share the Christmas Village photos (what little I took) in an upcoming blog post. We have church tomorrow and life group at someone else’s house tomorrow and then have to attend to Mom’s groceries as well as ours – so tomorrow is shot.
Also the pipes are backed up in the laundry room and we can’t do laundry this weekend. Unless we take it to Mom’s. I don’t feel like hauling our clothes back and forth from once city to another but we my have to. It’s only 15 min away but I want to be able to do laundry in my own home. And I want to be able to enjoy a day without blood curdling pain.
Here’s the link again for today’s video. I hope you enjoy it. Watch it HERE.
Thanks everyone. Please pray the pain goes away. This is not fun.
