Yo and good morning all!
Got MORE than the usual sleep last night.. turned in at 9:00pm AND did not get up until almost 6:30 (but got Atka out and then fed somewhere around 5:00AM).

Life is MUCH improved with a decent nights sleep.

I have had the tens unit used for a labrial tear of my shoulder (with therapy). I would teeze the therapist who applied it and tell her she could savea lot of time and money.. just hook up an electric fence and attach patients to it! I am bad.

Pain is no fun. I have two destroyed knees from 20 years of milking cows and two surgeries for a kicking accident with a horse. I take Naproxene but can only do that for so long and have to stop due to stomach issues casued by it.

Getting OLD is HIGHLY OVER RATED!

OK.. off to do some dog training then for a walk with the dog and then church.. come home and blast off to try to get Atka enrolled in Obedienct training (where the dogs learn and the people get trained.....).

L8ter...

and Cindi..
I live with 4 cats and am looking for #5... so cat fur is an issue.

I clean 2-3 times a week (quick clean with vaccuum on the rugs and "Swiffer" duster with Pledge sprayed on it for the bare floor areas). I brush my cats with a slicker.. and if you do it every day it really helps.

The other thing I learned is that cat hair sticks to rugs with Static electricity. If you take a spray bottle with clean water in it and mist the rugs, you break the static bond and the cat hair comes right up with the rotating brush head of the vaccuum.

Maybe you do all this stuff already.. or have better ideas..
Those of us with Cats (and now a German Shepherd!) are in a constant war with the hair.

Battle lines are drawn.. put on the dust mask and go at it!!!

Good Morning to you too!
Elana you are so funny! Getting old is highly over rated BUT what are the alternatives??? The trick is to grow older but keep the child in you alive. No matter how old you get you are still you.
Enjoy your day. I know I am going to. I was up at 4am & baked fresh pecan muffins from a recipe I found in GuidePost. They are delicious.
Hope everyone has a great Sunday.
Love,
Diane

WOW, thanks loves! I will definitely get one! I know the minute they put me on them...AHHHHHHHH

I do feel better today but am still looking forward to my next appmt.
I am pretty sure that if I asked they would let me stay on the Tens (now I know the name!) longer. They put two sets on me. One on upper and lower back and two stacked right on top of each other on the neck. I also have TMJ.
You should hear me threaten dentists about saying AAWWWWW! LOL

Finally...the way I look at going to the dentist...is that I am glad I can afford to go.

Agreed with all, a good night's sleep is a must.

Did you get some rest Loves?

hugs to all,
live

Now why didn't I think of that?? ......and you're right. Growing old is over rated, but growing old in pain sucks!

I didn't get much sleep again last night. I even took 4 pm pills and lied there wide awake until somewhere around 4ish. I think my pm pills must have been replaced with No-Doz or something.

My mother is such a negetive person and it's gotten to the point I don't like even being around her. I love my mom to death, but she's a bully when it comes to me and treats me like a child. She even told me how proud of me she was because I just opened up a new checking/savings account. WTF??? I'm 39. Aren't I supposed to have one of those?? I closed out my previous account because I moved to Texas and haven't been working until now. I swear she's Loco sometimes.

I've been working in Lantana which is about 100 miles or so from the house, so I've been staying down there with her during the week. My daughter has been watching my dog at her house. Now, because the baby is coming, she doesn't want to watch her anymore. I can't drive back and forth everyday.........gas is too high. So, I'm worried about what I'm going to do about work.

I've just got a lot on my mind..........which goes to show you that mind over sleeping pills really works.

it's wonderful out! I went out and sat in the patio in progress for awhile. Edie stopped by on her way to a client's. I had invited her yesterday.
NOW I am going on vacation .....I studied relaxation holistic techniques and practiced them for awhile when I was out of States, by myself, and I set the day aside as sanctified. No company, no calls and dedicated one day. I'm no expert but I find it worth every moment and more. If I run away I will do course 2 in it. LOL
Anyway, with that new allignment pillow, wow total body is held most comfortably, my mind empties, everthing relaxes and even tho' I cannot stay there an hour as the goal is because I fall asleep. The quality of the sleep is superior.
I should then follow it up with a beauty bath. "Should"=forbiden word....MAY is the affirmative.

Never mind the house. It's cluttered. But it can wait.

hugs,
live

Hey KJ.. Yeah.. I missed ya.. Loves is going a little nutty on us wbetween her Mom and a new baby making her a GRRRRAN... I can't even say IT!

To all those who battle cat hair.. I have managed to get it under control. In July and February they blow coat.. I brush 'em daily then. The swiffer with Endust might work as well. I also use the Swiffer Wet Jet.

I am an anal house keeper, which I am sure amuses the cats and the dog. However, I refuse to have anyone stop in and take a sniff of the air and make a face that says, "Oh you have PETS...."

My house is a lot cleaner w/o XABF hanging around too. He was a SLOB. I cleaned and he would make messes and I would clean.. and he would b**ch if the place wasn't clean.. but mine was cleaner than any place he ever lived, and a LOT cleaner than either of his sister's places (been to both).
