Luckie had to have a bath, scheduled for Saturday.Then there was the usual phone calls about what may be going on in a our small town, mainly 3 new eateries, even though there is a surplus already for a population that is declining in general with a large number wintering over in other states.
And 4 hours on Thursdays is devoted to church office duties as a volunteer. Tuesday the housekeeper was here. My duties those days are to answer questions, clean the washroom and usually the kitchen/den table where we do our daily dining.
When Friday arrived I began to panic. I made a trip to WalMart for last minutes items I don't usually keep, like International Delight flavors for coffee. I also had a dental hygiene cleaning and a date for an allergy shot.
Fortunately weight loss, albeit incremental, has helped my heart behaving acceptably for several weeks now--a few minor breakthroughs for about 45 minutes or less--not the 2 hours like I had in the beginning. But then I am now equipped with medicines to knock it back into rhythm; also some techniques call vagal maneuvers, and several relaxation techniques like hot showers which are surprisingly effective.
My nurse practitioner recognizes I am wound tighter than an alarm clock almost 24/7 and includes a medicine to be taken 3x a day, but I rarely take a mid-day dose. However, on busy or stressful days like Sunday was, I do take it and it does cut the hot salsa back a tad.
SO what did not get done? Well I missed getting by the upholstery shop to select fabric for my lift chair. That is on for this week. I have found pacing, myself instead of pushing myself are much better for my over all well being.
I fuss and worry over Luckie's somewhat dislike for men but she behaved very good, only begging for food, and finally settling down for a nap after our dining. She was in an enclosed room until the actually dinner was over. She immediately check us all out upon release and the sniffed out all the crumbs on the kitchen and dining floors, saving me considerable time for cleanup today.
A friend came over also last week and encryted my router/network as too many unknown persons were using my open (public) network. I know some neightbors are mad, but I tolerated it until they were telling all their friends of its existence. It is a form of stealing, if you gett really technical about it.
When oh when, will I get to play with my new camera?
