And It’s Getting Even Colder

But before we get to that, the good news.  Next week I start therapy on my shoulder!  I’m doing a happy dance in my brain, since my legs still don’t work all that well, and yes, I know it will hurt, but that will be a good kind of hurt.  I’ll be back in the kitchen, cooking again in two months.  My personal resolution.  Maybe a bit premature, but I’ll do it!!!!

family-268 These are my two great grandsons, Eli and Camden.  And they are standing out in the snow, the only photo I have in my library that has snow in it.  We have some snow in the forecast, but I received an email from my Citizens Emergency Relief Team (CERT) trainer today that we are going to have a horrible, humongous cold wave starting next week, with the temps dipping below zero.  So if you are in the Owensboro, KY area, be prepared.  Dress in layers, have emergency equipment on hand, both at home and in your car if you have to get out.  If you don’t have to get out, Please STAY AT HOME, and bundle up.  Have an ample supply of finger foods on hand in case of power outage, don’t turn your heat up too high so you can conserve electricity, dress in layers, and please take care of your pets.  They get cold too.  There is no word about ice or snow, just the extreme cold, and I know a lot of you live in colder areas, but darn it, this is supposed to be the South.  Upper south, but still….

Now for the personal train wrecks.  Believe me, as long as I’m breathing, there will be train wrecks.  I got this really nice cushion for my power chair, since my bum is getting a bit sore from sitting all the time, and today managed to spill my Dr. Pepper on it.  And on my phone, which was on the cushion next to the Dr. Pepper.  A new twist on sticky keys I think.  So, to keep from getting the seat of my jeans wet (I hope) I have a thick towel covering the cushion.  Also, a large wet spot on the leg of my jeans.  If there’s a way to destroy it, I’ll find it.

I’ve managed to drag a second quilt off my bed by getting it caught in my chair.  This takes a special talent.  And yesterday I pulled a panel off the door of the elevator.  Well, I never claimed to be a good driver.  And besides, the door shouldn’t have tried to close on me so fast.  It got me to my floor though, and for the first time in months it didn’t make that horrible sound when the door opened.  Guess I showed it who’s boss, huh?

  1. Also, your family is very beautiful. And I think the high here in Buffalo was like 5 degrees today and with wind-chill well below 0. Ugh!

    • The high here was above freezing, but when my son and daughter -in-law came by to bring me Mexican food tonight they said they had been shopping and everything in the grocery is sold out. So that is a Kentucky guarantee of a heat wave instead of cold one. BTW, if you like the looks of the Don Charisma non award, put it proudly on your blog site. He has inspired me to create one of my own, so I’m working on making up an “Angel Award” which you will be receiving soon. The only rules are there are no rules. Display it proudly.

  2. Yay for your shoulder therapy and the road to recovery! I am amused by your tales as usual. How did you manage to rip a panel off the elevator door? I like your terminology, “this takes a special talent” 🙂

    • The door started closing too soon, so I shoved my chair in and the panel ripped off. I think it was already loose, because when it got to my floor the door opened without all the usual noise. Haven’t heard anything from the manager yet, so I guess I haven, been evicted for it–at least not yet.

  3. Great news in the shoulder, Angie. You will be on your way back to cooking. I’m so happy for you. Wow, zero in Kentucky. That will be a deep freeze. Be warm and be careful. And you are right, your family is quite beautiful!

    • I’m really looking forward to the therapy Mark. And yeah, zero in KY.. Might get colder as the week progresses, but I stay prepared for it. I really do have a beautiful family, and thank God for them all the time. Could you pick out the 4 out of the group that are adopted?
