I just got back from my pain doctor's office. I had to tell him the Spinal Block didn't work. So I need to get a new MRI of my lumbar area next week. His office nurse will make the appointment for me and call me next week to let me know when I have to get it. He may have to do another Radiofrequency Ablation like I had in 2014. If that's the case then it should stop the pain for a year.

For all of you wondering, David really did forget my birthday. He remembered yesterday and called me from his office to say he was soooooo sorry. I let him know that it was alright, it doesn't really matter anymore, so that's that.
The next debate will be on October 10th and I plan to watch that one too because I believe Trump is going to be going in with his nasty, lying self swinging. I do hope that Hillary has a few tricks up her sleeves. She's already smarter. She just has to put up her force-field and let his bullshit bounce back and smack him in the face.

David forgot my birthday. I'm not heartbroken over it because he also forgot our anniversary. I noticed has a lot on his shoulders. I'm not sure what it is because he won't tell me. So I'm not going to bother him about it right now.
Yesterday I took full advantage of the bad weather and stayed in bed most of the day. I was mostly too heavily drugged up to go anywhere. I was not feeling one bit of pain. I had Nurse Lucy with me, she slept all day long. Every now and then she would wake up and check to make sure I was still in bed. Dr. Spunky was at the bottom of the bed sleeping also. He was the one that recommended lots of rest. He took his own advice and did the same.
I'm not sure when the cold front went through yesterday but I do know I felt the pressure from it. David could tell by the pain I was in where the front was. When he checked the weather it was on top of our area most of the day and the pain was unbearable. So naturally, I drugged myself up and slept so I wouldn't feel it. It was the most logical thing to do at the time.
I was able to watch the debate last night. It was interesting the way Donald fell apart considering he says Hillary lacks the STAMINA to be POTUS. Also, why was he sniffing so much? Was he coming down with a cold? Was it allergies? Was it because he can smell his own bullshit? Or was it the cocaine? AHAhahahahaaahahaaaa! Those were just some of the Tweets last night lighting up Twitter. Y'all be the judge. I'm saying Hillary won this round.
Now I have a few more things to say about politics. Today is National Voter Registration Day. People need to get out there and register and then vote. I have a few words to say about Democrats. You people who are Democrats and are registered to vote need to get off your asses and go vote this November 8th. It's a Tuesday just to let you get that straight. Last time you didn't vote the Republicans took the House and made Obama's presidency a mess. Everyone paid dearly for it. Nothing got passed and nothing got done. It's your own fault that YOU DEMOCRATS didn't vote. Were you too lazy? What was the problem? All I'm saying is that Trump will make it to the White House if you don't vote. So PLEASE REGISTER and go VOTE!!!

I'm back and everything is fini, ferdig, finito, pau, perfecta, done, that's all she wrote. I am not going anywhere for the rest of the week. I had to go back this morning, for an MRI of my lower back. The back doctor wasn't happy with the x-rays yesterday. The hospital called and said they had an 8:30 appointment made by the doctor for me this morning. But, that's okay, my insurance covers that shit so I'm cool. Everything went smooth as silk. But I still had to wait for the lab because house patients come first in a hospital. All the crazies were already at work so driving wasn't an issue. Parking was, on the other hand, a bitch because it seemed like everyone and their mother was in town. But what matters now is that this is done.
After my blood draw and x-rays yesterday, I decided I needed a treat, so I stopped off at the local Starbucks and get a grande double espresso white chocolate mocha. I haven't had a good Starbucks coffee in like, forever. Well, I only drink coffee in the late autumn, winter, and into early spring; never in the summer or when it's hot. Ordering a double espresso, that's my usual deal. But I should have known better. Do you know I have been up without sleep for 24 hours now? I forgot about all the caffeine that shit packs. I was jittery for hours and when I thought it finally was over, the night owl kicked in. I was up all night watching old movies on tv. I'm still going. Next time I need this much go power, I'll just say, "hey Starbucks. Fuck me up."
Spunky is still being a little sphincter. I'm guessing he thinks the world revolves around his ass. He sleeps like a king. YES!! Yes, he does. He has the doggie bed all to himself while the girls sleep either in the kitchen or on the blankets. He sleeps practically all day until just before David comes home. Then he's up like a fresh daisy looking to play and fight with the girls. David has never seen Spunky act like this so he says "no pictures, no proof." I'm thinking the guys are in cahoots with each other.
I weighed myself this morning. The last time I weighed myself was at my family doctor's office 3 months ago. I have lost a total of 25lbs so far since, so that's about 2 lbs a week. I'm doing a combo of Paleo and King-Prince-Pauper diets. I've combined them both. I also completely dropped sugar, lowered my salt, stopped all dairy, rice, and flour. No cola drinks at all. I drink iced tea with lemon or fruit infused ice water. I eat a large meal in the morning and medium sized meal in the afternoon and a soup in the evening. I eat fruit or nuts as a snack between meals if I feel a bit hungry. I eat nothing but lean meat, fresh fruit and veggies. Everything is in moderation. I also walk on the treadmill in the morning and in the evening. It's working like I planned and my doctor will be happy when he finds out next week when I see him.

In case you didn't see yesterday's post it was a Canadian meme. I'm bringing back "Canada Eh?" posts again. I don't know why I stopped because I have so many yet to post. Also, I'm starting my Religious posts as "Religion in a Nutshell." These posts will touch on all religions, not just the wacko Christians. If you are offended, well I'm sorry. I like to post what I believe and sometimes it might hurt. I might even lose some readers. I won't mind. I've gotten to the age where things in life are just too funny and stupid to not talk about.
On to better things. I'm feeling much better. Doing my exercises helps quite a bit. Wednesday night was the first night in a long time that I didn't need any help -drug wise- falling asleep. I haven't had to take my pain meds for two days either. This morning is the second time I woke up feeling refreshed but I'm not totally pain-free yet. My leg still aches and if I stand too much my back will start letting me know to sit for a while. I actually feel pretty damned good. But the thing is, I'm not going to push my luck. I'm not going to go crazy and dig up the garden or mow the lawn or tear the house apart and clean it. I did do two loads of laundry today and plan to do the last two loads tomorrow. What's really awesome is that I've been able to cook dinner this whole week. I haven't been able to accomplish that for almost two months now. I have learned to take breaks when I'm not feeling well. It helps so much. I find the older I get the worse off I am. Anyone know of a good body shop? I need a complete overhaul.
The puppies are wanting to stay out a little longer when the mornings are in the low 70's, which I don't mind. But yesterday, I had to go get them because they were out for a couple of hours and didn't answer my calls. Spunky has been a little shitball lately. He acts like a 17-year-old teenager. He doesn't come when called and defies me at every turn. I tested his hearing by banging two pots together in the doorway of the TV room and he woke up right away. That was a bit loud so I tried just clapping my hands when he was asleep and he woke up that time too. So the little fucktard has no hearing problem yet, he's just being a pain in the ass and not listening to us.
David has started putting rocks into the "hole " on the side of the house. We found out that it was a metal tank for dispersing sewage Yeah, well, we found out the top rotted from rust and caved in which showed the metal sides. David and I did some research work into this and found there were tanks like that in our area. A neighbor down the street had the same problem. So we are filling the hole half way with rocks and then David will be getting a pickup truck full of dirt to cover and finish the job. I don't care what he does. I still ain't going outside and walk in our yard ever again.

OMG! It took two hours for me to write just this little bit. Wonder if I can break that record tomorrow.
