Saturday night I soaked my foot in Epsom Salt. All day Saturday I had tried to either walk on my heel or the side of my foot which mainly resulting in me deciding just not to walk much at all. I had sat and watched my shows on YouTube most of the day.
Overnight, my right foot hit up against my left foot and it felt really sharp. I decided then to check more closely when I got up. George has a really good flash light. And when I took the flash light to it, I could see the glimmer and sparkle of a piece of that crystal glass. I knew my foot wouldn’t shine like that. So George brought me tweezers and asked for alcohol, cotton balls, and a towel and he brought me back Tito’s hand made vodka (to make me laugh, and it did, for a second). I cleaned the tweezers with the other alcohol and began trying to extract it. It hurt really bad. I was pulling at skin instead of the glass. George wanted to do it but I told him it was something I had to do myself. And I stopped trying as I said, “what am I doing? I need a cup of coffee first”.
I drank about a half of a cup to get my eyes open and George suggested I take acetaminophen to knock the edge off and try again in 30 min. This time I was able to focus and I just happened to get the tweezers in the exact spot, I had a good hold of the glass and pulled. Sorry for the graphic explanation. It was a hefty chunk left in there. I’m trying to figure out how to explain the size. It was not quite as big as a bacon bit, lol. But maybe a 1/3 of a bacon bit. This may be like a fish tale, it may grow every time the story is told? George bandaged me up proper with gauze and tape. Once that chunk of glass was out of my foot I could immediately apply my weight and walk normal. I was so excited. I had thought that I was going to be hobbling around all week. The morale boost that gave was enormous.
We sat in the sun room for a while and I finished my coffee and had some more. We have been noticing a red fox come through in the mornings. It’s pretty exciting to sit in the sun room and listen and watch nature. The birds new the fox was around, you could hear their warnings. Neighborhood dogs were also giving warning. And somewhere in a distance you can hear a rooster crow.
Oh – We took the dogs for their trim Saturday. And sad to find out our groomer has breast cancer. I know she is not going to want to keep up the Saturday schedule but knowing we work outside of Mount Juliet, she said she didn’t want to lose our business and kept us on a Saturday. But I fear we’ll end up having to find another eventually depending on how she feels. I’ll be praying for her and all goes well. She has been a good groomer for the doggies. But she really seems stressed a lot. Here are the doggies. I’m sure I’ll have better pics over the next week or so.
I was so happy to be walking, and began doing laundry yesterday. I picked out my clothes the week, and decided for some reason to come and work a bit on the iMovie. Well there went the day. ha. I was back in my bliss. A thousand things calling me and so many things I needed to be doing instead. But I kept saying to myself “let me just do this one thing.
And well, I kinda finished the whole thing up – this next iMovie. It’s ready to go! All done. I worked on what they call an “Outro” (opposite of an Intro), lol. I’m not sure I like the term but I’ll go with it. I did it all real quick and even my hair is a mess, but I was mainly doing a test and decided to go with it. So I’ll be uploading the video here in a day or so. It takes a while to upload into YouTube. I have to check the quality of it also and come up with my tags. And I will also post it here in a blog post as well as updating the side bar with the latest. I took a few moments to kind of outline the steps to making the imovie on my office board. This is my process anyway, and the process of clearing out and I include the deleting of photos on my phone, moving them out of the cloud, deleting the ones I don’t want and so forth. I also take a lot of pics to remind myself of things.
So it’s quite the list.
Did I get anything done I should have been working on? Not much. Before I knew it, it was time to go to Cracker Barrel.
We had a nice time just chatting and waiting and chatting and waiting. Many people were outside for pick up. The waitress kept apologizing. I noticed they also were seating people on the front porch. They really did have the business yesterday but could only serve half capacity of course.
They brought our bread first. I was starving as I forget to eat much when I’m working on these imovie things. I had quiche for breakfast – the kind you buy which was really good. But then only a bag of THAT SHAKE/SUPPLEMENT CO I USE chips for lunch. They have plant protein and they kept me well.
At Cracker Barrel I had the beef pot roast and it was excellent. It was so cold in there, that it was welcome. They finally had to turn the air down. I’m sure several complained.
So after that we went to Kroger for our Store run. And we got back it was probably about 7:30. By the time we unloaded and took dogs out it was quickly 8:00. I had about an hour to get a list of things done.
I had to get a check addressed and in the mail to cover the cost of the cake for the virtual shower next Saturday. The Momma to be is picking up her own cake as she is in another city from the rest of us. But I ordered it. I do have to check on it b/c they said they would send an email and I never got one. But I do have the confirmation. Anyway, got that addressed and George will mail or give me a stamp to mail.
I had to do my vitamins and BP meds for the week and get those loaded into their compartments for the week.
I needed to reboot the laundry. I needed to put the clean sheets on the bed. And I realized I’d not washed my masks out. So I got those set up for washing. I have a little bowl and Dawn that I soak them in usually overnight. I had to keep one out to wear today though as was not sure they would be dry.
And I never got to do my nails. I should have done that Saturday while I was wallowing in my pity party of not being able to walk. I just went on strike completely I think at that point, lol.
So this morning I have nails that need some attention but I’ll work on those tonight. I will be having to do a lot of my weekend list this week at night. Including making sure that everything is in order for the shower. That will be the first order of business.
Next weekend will be a busy one. We have a grad party, the virtual baby shower, and Sunday if the virus is not all blown up, George is doing his “Father’s Day Excursion”. I began talking about my Mother’s Day Excursion at Cracker Barrel. When am I getting my day? lol. We went to Mom’s on Mother’s Day but I didn’t get a day to go and do what I wanted to do which is eat at Slim Chickens and go shopping! 😉
I did enjoy looking thru the gift shop in Cracker Barrel.
And I must go as the time is dwindling. Sleep was really good last night. Pretty solid.
Oh I’ll leave you with this….a spaghetti sauce we saw in Kroger. We didn’t get it as we have a lot of sauce and pasta. I’m fixing some kind of pasta this week, but trying to eliminate having a lot of pasta as once I eat it I want more and more. But look at this sauce. This is hilarious.
I guess it starts crying when you put it in the pot?
Oh well, more tomorrow and hopefully a video as well. It may be Wednesday as you know Payroll is tomorrow, so we’ll see how things go!
Off for more coffee and hope you all have a good Monday. But you have no idea how glad I am the weekend turned around and I’m not hobbling hardly at all now that the glass is out. Over and Out.
