Not much new....

Well, for once there's not a whole lot going on around here :)  Well, except the dreaded visit to the doc on Thursday but that's for my physical (he's my primary care doc) so there's no chance of him messing with my meds and stuff like that.  On the other hand, I see my specialist the first week in December so if he does mess with my meds (and it's almost like an obsession with that man) I may be adjusted to them in time to enjoy Christmas dinner....I think my husband gave me the cold from hell but I'm thankful it's not the flu.  As it is, I don't have my flu shot yet and that's another reason for my doctor visit Thursday.  Initially he had me down for seeing him in January.  I don't think so!  I took it upon myself to schedule my physical in October because I've always been one for doing things the same time each year....why would I wait until January to get a flu shot???  By then I'd most likely already be sick and let's face it folks, I really can't afford to get much sicker.  I've been so darn tired lately and that I can almost handle, but darn if I can get used to these dark circles under my eyes.  I look like a vampire or something.  Funny thing is, I was watching a talk show a few weeks ago and the hostess said she can always tell someone on the street who drinks heavily by the circles under thier eyes.  Boy, have I got news for her...I never looked this bad until I STOPPED drinking.  My doc says I can use all the make up in the world but being sick is going to take it's toll on my looks.  Oh well. Other than that, I'm just getting ready for my husband to start going underway.  Not the big deployment, that happens next year, but in November he'll start going underway for  a few days or maybe even a few weeks at a time.  I'm not really worried about being here alone because for the most part I feel ok and such, but I worry about doing the things I'm not able to do....like lifting things at the grocery, or cleaning the cat litter.  These are all things he does because I'm not able and when he's not here...well, you may see the problem.  He says I need to learn to do them.  I KNOW how to do them but I can't.  I am physically unable to lift a container of 35 lbs of cat litter out of the jeep and haul it upstairs.  So here we go again with his attitude.  I'll figure out a way as I always do but darn, just once I'd like him to say it's going to be alright and he'll help me find someone to help me out.   Anyway, on that happy note I'm off to get ready to pick him up so he can come home and sneeze all over me.  he still does that, and is getting really terrible with hand washing and such.  I don't know how many times I need to tell him that he has to be more careful and considerate around me.  His line of thinking is that he hasn't gotten me seriously ill yet so what the hell.  And he also says that if I get a bad cold or what have you then what's the big deal...I have all the time in the world to rest and get rid of it.....oh him and his over the counter cold remedy filled world....he'll never understand. Hugs and prayers and blessings to all...CA and kitty cats

Ouch! I think Jim will be coming home next week. You and I need to get together for dinner again and we can work out a schedule -- I can help you out. I can imagne the kitty litter hauling issue, I have my strength (except for weak hands from the surgery on my thumbs) and I struggle with the litter thing. I\'m here for you!
