Good morning! Up at oh-to-heck-with-it early again, but cats are bcuddling me on the couch, so not all bad.
Today, th eDMV. Ugh. Awful place, but... We'll manage.
Hubby bought an insert for our sliding door. It has a pet door built into it. Unfortunately, we have to train the cats. OK, I have to. And Installation? Me. And... Uh... Can't we just get up and open the dang door to the catio porch?
So what's to win today?
Today also marks the victory of colonial American forces under George Washington at Yorktown, in 1781. It's considered the last major battle of the Revolutionary War, and the British forces were led by Lord Cornwallis. Who, really, didn't win anything, but it's all in where you stand? Uh... Never mind.
In 1989, since things weren't wacky enough in the then-USSR, Soviet news agency Tass (the official voice of the Soviet leadership) released a story saying that a UFO had been sighted, as well as a trio of aliens. Insert your own jokes here if you're old enough to remember thesse things. If not, move along...
Today in Petersburg VA, but in 1946, the first ever electric blanket went on sale. Ironic, given the climate in Virginia is pretty warm. Especially in Petersburg, which is in the eatsern part of the state. That is, the warmest part. (So is Yorktown. Yeah. Not much happens in my patch. Or ever did. Kinda nice, really...)
Today in 1930, the first transcontinental flight solo by a woman in the US was completed by aviator Laura Ingalls (related as a cousin of some kind to the Little House Laura Ingalls). Obvs, adventure ran in th eDNA.
Today... Let's just win our own little fights. To stay calm. To feel peaceful. To not scream obscenities at the world. To win the moments that make a life a little better. Like, y'know, lemon cupcakes! (Yes, I made some.)
Off to braekfast (not cupcakes, alas) and maybe a nap after. :-)
Hugs to all, and may your day be3 a victory for you!
Good morning. Six hours in a row! Ish. Well, with lots of up-down-turn-around sort of sleep. Wait... That's exercise...***So, did you know adult diapers are approximately $9 billion industry? Neither did I. Now I can't escape it. How depressing is that? *sigh* The worst of it, in my opinion, is that they can't seem to figure out how to amend what happens to female pelvises, particularly due to...
Got my MRI results today. My neck MRI is completely normal no issues there so my migraines are coming from my head not neck. My lower back MRI on the other end, shows more degenerative changes, my back is getting worse same issues but worse and more disc bulging then a year ago. Which explains the increased pain :( No emergency surgery needed but do need surgery once i have lost enough weight. I...
