I got the above from Lisa Jo, who got it from Guido. Of course, it piqued my interest. So I'm a nymph? Hmm...and a bit naked at that...hehe
So, I'm reading it, and, yep, oddly it sort of applies to me this past summer. Lonely, lost but hopeful. It's been a tough one but I hate to complain because so many others are experiencing so much worse.
Last week I saw my orthopod and had an MRI done. No tears, which is good but my shoulder is encapsulated or "frozen" which is not great. I'm not sure how it got that way as I've tried to keep it moving. PT was ordered but I'm hedging on it because the first round of PT a few years ago actually aggravated my shoulder. So, last week, I was off Monday and Tues because after all the range of motion stuff, my shoulder killing me Tues. Wed, half a day and an injection, which has not provided a whole lot of relief...ugh. I'll get used to it. Friday, after work, I got off the bus. My new car would not crank over. I figured it was the battery but was furious. I've only put 4,000 miles on that car since November. I called AAA. Yep, it was the battery. They jumped it, and I went to Advanced Auto and had a new titianium one put in. $80 not in my buget. Crap, did I want a cigarette but resisted. What in the world would I do with some "real" stress?
I got all my work caught up this Mon-Wed and decided to take Thurs and Fri off to float in my pool and clear my mind or at least try to find what little mind I have left.
Of course, I got home last night prepared to relax for the next few days. Not to be. Some of you may remember my air conditioner woes from last summer. I've had this 18,000 BTU beast in my wall from Sears for five years now. It cools the whole downstairs but I've had problems with it from the second summer that I had it. Last year, I waited all summer for the compressor to be replaced. Well, guess what, the same dragging sound is starting again with the new super duper compressor that was installed last August. The technicians are coming on Sat. The Sr. technician is supposed to discuss compensation toward a new unit. Hmmm.....I'm thinking the new unit should be installed for nothing considering all the problems I've had in the past 5 years. I've had $1,200 worth of work done on a $500 unit that Sears has paid for because of the warranty. I told the guy I'm saving them money if they would just install a new unit.....we'll see. I feel a fight coming on.
I'm hoping to finally catch up again on my journal reading and to get into my graphics journal. My shoulder has been pretty good the last two days....knock on wood. I was having problems just signing my name for the past week so basically, that is why I haven't been around.
Love to all!!!!!!!
