Have been relaxing, in between household chores, enjoying some of my crafty hobbies this weekend.

Woke up feeling a bit off this morning. I ate a lot of pizza yesterday, and I think it bothered me. I don't eat much wheat or grains. It gives me a belly ache if I then over-indulge. I have my sights set on a nap.

Might cook a ham dinner. I've had one I got on sale at the holidays. I have some sweet potatoes and greens around.

Rainy day here. It just let up and some fog is setting in.
Feel better, phoebe.

My car is broken again, and is about to cost another $500 odd for a new front windshield wiper motor (and labour, hopefully less). This is getting annoying, and very expensive.
I despise car repairs, v. For as much as we spend on cars they should last forever and repairs should be free - aaah, life in LeighLand.

Venus, $500 sounds like way too much for a windshield wiper motor. Feel better Phoebe! The sun came out and it was in the 60's so I decided to go for a nice long walk. Totally backfired on me. I was a mile from home when it started to pour These things always happen to me.

Last night I looked up the first couple of threads for our class. A few of the posters are still on SR but don't post here, like Countrygirl (Jennifer). Honestly, I had forgotten how many people there were.

Hi, BD.

I didn't know that countrygirl was an Octsober. She is such a strong woman.

The part is $300 BD. I don't know how much the labour costs....maybe a hundred odd?

And Leigh, I loved this car....not so much anymore.

Not good Leigh...how did you know?
I nearly called an ambulance at 5 this morning. Nearly.
I have never known cramping that bad before. Breathing through the pain was a huge challenge.
I do not like being a woman at this point in my life.

Jesus Vee. That sounds serious. Are you under a doctors care?

Countrygirl's a big inspiration to me. After I declared my last day one I read a post by her and the success of her first year. I live by her and AA's motto.

Sounds pretty bad V - I hope you are at least considering the Dr?
Sorry about the car too - is it a local garage you go to?

It is bad , and I have to go to the gynaecologist again.

And yes, I am taking my car to my same guy....I looked it up....if the part is cheaper than that, good.

I'm sorry you're having such a hard time, V. I hope the doctor can help you find some relief. Lady troubles are no good at all!

Thank you ~ and apologies if I'm a bit snappy.
I feel like something the cat would drag in if I let her (which I don't, LOL).
It doesn't help that they're doing our concrete walk and fence outside...so much noise.

Going to put on some soothing music and have a shower.

Good grief, v; that sounds terrible.

I hope that your doc can get to the bottom of this; you have been struggling with this for way too long.

Sending love.

I'm really sorry you're not feeling well for so long V. And I agree that car repairs are stressful. I don't know much about that stuff and have wondered before if the repair places have used that to their advantage. I've never been good about shopping around. I just want it fixed.

V, I recall from some of your other posts that you've had some nice travels....Israel, Paris, London? Have you been to Wanaka?

Arbor, is you newest little guy scooting about much? They get mobile and it's a game changer.
