Well, it's hump day which means nothing to me because I have been on vacation all week!
We did not make any plans to go anywhere which is probably a good thing because it is HOT right now! Maybe if we planned on heading to the UP it would be cooler up there, but Rich is working this week so it's been me on my own!
I had a big list of stuff to do this week and have accomplished about 1/4 of it. I had planned to paint the front door, the garage door (the small one) and the trim around the garage door (the big one) and smaller door (got that?). Well, it's been so hot and humid this week that I have postponed that until the weather cools off a little, or at least the humidity goes away.
I want the paint to dry before Christmas, you know?
So I have been doing a lot of cleaning stuff that I don't usually get around to cleaning like the china cabinet that holds my grandmothers tea set that my dad sent to her from occupied Japan during the Korean war.
And this display cabinet where I keep my collection of mama and baby animal figurines:
Can I just stop here and say what a royal pain in the ass this cabinet is to clean? I mean, it's a beautiful display cabinet and having the doors on the side is good so they don't get in the way of the stuff you are trying to display, but it is so awkward to get into to clean that I only do it once or twice a year!
Anyway, Friday I went for my diabetes check. My A1C count is down again which is great! All that treadmilling is doing me some good!
Today I had a routine screening CT scan as a follow-up for my bladder cancer that I had two years ago. She had to try twice to get the IV in. Plus I have to go back to my doctor on Friday to check my kidney function because the contrast that they use for the scan combined with the diabetes drug that I take can cause kidney failure (I know, wonderful.) So before I can start taking my medication again she has to check my blood. So in conclusion, that's 4 needles in a week! Hey come on, I can whine once in a while can't I?
So after reading through this post it's a little whiney but really, I am in a great mood and plan on thoroughly enjoying the last 4 days of my vacation!
And all Toby wants is for me to let him enjoy the sun in peace!
