Friday Funny

An elderly couple had just learned how to send text messages on their mobile phones. The wife was a romantic type and the husband was more of a no-nonsense guy.
 One afternoon the wife went out to meet a friend for coffee. She decided to send her husband a romantic text message and she wrote:
 "If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears.  I love you."
The husband texted back to her:   

"I'm on the toilet.    Please advise."

Same Old Shit, Different Days

I was going to write about why I was out the past week and a half. But everyone knows why and what I'm going through. If you don't, then you haven't read this crap that I write.

 Anywho, I saw my pain doctor last week Friday and he gave me a prescription for my back pain. He also said we should try another session of radiofrequency injections if this drug doesn't work. So, I'm giving it three weeks and then next month I go back to see him and we will decide what to do.

Today is Monday and I'm functioning for now. I took one of the Zanaflex that my doctor prescribed this morning. So I will be functioning for a while longer. David was laughing at me the first time I took that stuff on Saturday morning. I was talking to him and then all of a sudden I wasn't making any sense of what I was saying.

I remember telling him that I needed to go lie down in the bedroom before I fall on my face and I sware it felt as if my butt slid right off my body when I stood up. David said I kept asking him to go find it because I left it on the floor in the TV room. He said he was laughing so hard while he was trying to get me to lie down in bed with the heating pad, that he fell on the floor. He told me he never laughed so hard in his life. What can I say.

By Sunday (yesterday) I was able to do one load of laundry and at least make a small dinner for us without too much discomfort. This morning I watered the house plants and was able to sweep the kitchen floor. But right now I'm wishing I hadn't done that because pain is creeping up and down my legs and lower back. I have been sitting for something like twenty minutes to write this and it's getting bad so I'm going to lay down, or is it lie down for a while. Fuck it! I don't care. I'm headed for the heating pad in the bedroom.

Thursday And I'm Bored Shitless

Last night was a beautiful full moon and there was a faint ring around it. I decided to do a grounding meditation along with a bit of chanting. I haven't done this in a long time because of my medical problems. It felt wonderful and I slept like a baby all night long. When I woke up this morning there was a light rain almost mistlike falling. Everything was a deep dark green and I felt refreshed as if I had woken from a thousand year sleep. Then my body started to hurt.

I grabbed my rather extra large cup of coffee that was finished blurping from the machine. Sadly it's not a Keurig, although David wanted to get one for me for my birthday last month I asked for something cheaper, more economical. I was on my way out the door to drop off my 24hour urine test and get my blood drawn again. You would think I wouldn't mind this shit since I was once a Lab Tech, once upon a time. This deal with getting drawn still bothers me.

Traffic was light as usual. Just a boring day. The county fair starts tomorrow with a parade and David will be off. He is taking the day because his birthday is Saturday. Right now we are both 60 years old. I found out I am his age for exactly 15 days out of the year from my birthday until his. Weird shit!

He wants to do some yard work this weekend and I have to get a little house work done too. I'm hoping to be able to do something if my body lets me. Lately, it's been hard to bend down to pick up all the dog toys. If I could just teach the puppies to pick up after themselves, life would be a breeze around here.

Not much else happening around here. Dogs are barking at cats, birds ar singing, it's hot and humid as hell. Same old shit, just a different day.

Medical Marijuana . . . Why Not?

I've been getting fan email from friends in Colorado, and a few comments from a certain Pickleope, who happens to have one of the funniest blogs around. They're all asking why I don't just toke up to relieve my aches and pains. If I could lite up, I would in a microsecond. But I can't because I don't want to do the time. Texas is hard on drug enforcement.
Besides, I'm just too pretty for jail.
 People are so worried that legalizing marijuana here in Texas would lead to higher crime rates. 
But in fact it lowers the crime rate
Also, they claim cannabis is addictive and a gateway drug. 
It's not. 
I wish everyone would get educated with the right facts.

Because of all the bad hype cannabis is getting, 
I don't think it ever will get the legal wave here. 
It's sad that Texas is so far behind the times.

 Medical Marijuana is the best there is in fighting most diseases and their symptoms.

 I have read so many blogs from people writing about legalizing MM, and some of them are here in Texas. I've also heard that we might have a chance to vote on legalization next year. If or when Texas ever legalizes marijuana, there would be such a blaze up; people in other states would think a thick fog bank hit us. It would last for weeks, maybe months.

 Legalize it, tax it, regulate it.
All I can do is wait, and hope, and vote.

If I Ever See Karma . . .

I don't know why the Wet Dog Wednesday post got published today. Something is just not right, and it's probably my fault because I set this up to post automatically for tomorrow. Yeah, crap on toast. 

Anywho, I have an appointment with my pain doctor in two weeks and in the mean time I'm on meds to try to alleviate my back pain. My meds are the BOMB, but it's really hard to function this way. I'm not in a medication fog, it's just hard to do stuff around the house when you can barely bend down to pick things up or do the simplest of house work like sweeping or laundry. Just picking up anything over 8 lbs. sends shocking waves of what feels like lightning through my spine and down my legs. 

It's unbelievable how something that we take for granted causes so much pain when it's all fucked up. It really pisses me off that I didn't take better care of myself when I was working. I picked heavy things up properly, but I was never sitting at the lab tables when I could have. I was always standing and it put a great deal of strain and stress on my back discs and spine in general. 

So now I'm paying through the nose monetarily and comfort wise. I'm just plain screwed and I did it to myself by not paying attention to the signals that my body was sending me. So to answer all your questions . . . yes, I am back, but sparingly. Only when I feel I can tolerate sitting for longer than 20 minutes. But that also depends on the weather, since this pain is caused mostly from arthritis. 

Whatever.Yeah I know. I am grateful that I have your blogs to read even though I don't get to read everyone, sorry Birdie, but I am trying. I'm thankful for all of your well wishes. I don't get to reply to everyone all the time because my time is limited at sitting. It took me fucking near 6 hours to write this bitch. I wish I could write some more but I'm starting to feel pain again so I'm cutting this short. Sorry.

Wet Dog Wednesday
