Wednesday In The Woods

I was going to find a grand photo of some of my Purr and Fur Gang but my husband has done something to my puter system. He put some new thing on it and mentioned how it was now going to download to this or that. Well, I tried and can't find this or that. I left him a message. He knows how important my photos are so I'm sure he'll look into it tonight. I just hope he didn't really goof up and lose them.

It's still quiet over her in the woods. Maddy Jean is still healing. Her smaller incision, the five inch one, needs another week or so and then her t shirt can come off. She's playing with Jodie Belle like a puppy again. I've decided not rush her in for those x rays. I don't really want to know right now. I'd like to have her play for a while. I don't want to know. I'll do it later. We have already decided that we won't do anymore for her. This was the one and only nasty Frankensteinish like one that I'll do to her. It was and still is terrible.

I went to my spine rehab Dr. today. He's a nice guy. I told him that I'm better which I am sort of but not as much as I told him. Said I would go back to pt but I was busy this week. Not sure if I will. A few of the exercises made my mid spine hurt and I don't need any more aches in my back. He said I should go back anyway. I said I would. Fingers were crossed .. mentally that is.

So, September is mostly free for me. The last few months have been terrible. No free dates on them at all. September will be all me. I have two appointment the end of the month but other than that I'm just going to do what I want.

I have this messy house to take care of. Nothing like having a bad back (since April) and three kids home for the Summer (daughter brought her boyfriend home) and a sort of hording husband to make a girl go ... waaahhhhh ... I'm the girl and that's me screaming.

I will slowly work room by room til I get this place cleaned up. I always feel like I ought to do the most I can cause I don't know when my back will go out again. Always a time thing with me.

Let's see, anything else going on .. trying to plan a few mini vacations. Locally to the Ocean and maybe one to somewhere warmer in the Winter. Trying to figure out what to do for the Holidays since my daughter won't be coming home this year. My kids are grown up now and those years of toys under the tree are gone. Now, it's just enjoy the Season and go do fun things. Not to worry. There will always be the Purr and Fur Gangs toys .. they get stockings too.

And, that as I say, is my Wednesday In The Woods Update.

Boy can I relate to you, I am sorry to hear you have pains, me too, just can't figure out why. So I am now taking pain pills, and hoping my shoulder improves. I hope you get to relax in between cleaning. Today it is so nice here sitting on the deck with some of my furbies. The hummers are starting to leave and soon the feeders will come down. Almost time for the next round of weather, fall. My fav. Luvs to you all.

Sure hope your husband shows you how to get to this and that and you find your pictures all in tact. I have had to go to PT a few times. I do not like going to PT at all. I can relate to back fun. I hope the pain gets much better and you do not have to suffer while doing the chores you need to get done. Hugs

Given all that you've gone through in recent months, I like that September is for you.

One suggestion: If your household budget will allow it, see if you can hire someone to help with the cleaning, even just this once. Doesn't have to be a company, there are lots of ads out there for individuals who offer cleaning services, especially under the table. Just check them out first, if you can.

I think it's good to just let Maddy Jean be her best self. Quality of life for any Being is crucial, IMO. And you cannot change the fact that she will pass, when she's meant to, no matter what you do. As we all will.

Beth here....I hope you enjoy your month of September! Do fun things too....not just clean. This will be the first Christmas I won't be with the kids....I am sad already but life changes and sometimes we can't do anything about it. I am certain I will find some fun things to do....Enjoy your time, my friend! Hugs to the furry gang!

So glad Maddie Jean is doing well!!
And that you are doing well, too!! Take it easy, just a little bit every day, and follow the advice of the Purr and Fur Gang, and have a nap!!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
