Misc Catch Up

Found out a friend of mine very likely has lung cancer, metastasised from her original breast cancer. This breaks my heart. I just can’t put into words how I feel.

Had lunch with the Lunch Group yesterday at Middleton Tavern and did all the driving for the day (about 2 and a half hours worth).

Learning to cope with Sjogren’s by using lubricants 3 or 4 times a day. Hand cream, Eye drops, Nose rinse, mouth lubricant (did you even know there was such a thing? It’s called Biotene Gel), etc. Staying on top of things before letting any area get dry seems to help.

Rod and I both took unintentional naps today. We drifted to sleep watching TV after we had our breakfast.

Tomorrow is a public holiday – Queens Birthday – which made today’s lack of doing anything useful tolerable – after all it’s a holiday weekend. What better time is there to slack off and relax a bit?

I’m still heart broken over my friend. She’s been through hell. Her arsehole ex-husband left her after she recovered from breast cancer treatment with the excuse ‘I just couldn’t handle it if she gets cancer again.’ Now she’s alone, and going through more bullcrap. Sigh. I bet he STILL can’t handle it and by god, I hope when he finds out, the guilt hits him where he feels it most. Selfish sonofa… Oh, I’ll leave it there. I could write heaps about this though. Burns me up.

15Sep22  I bought a rotisserie chicken for a quick dinner and then a day or so later made some very nice chicken soup with the carcass and breast meat leftover.  I cooked the noodles separately in some of the broth I took from the soup and then just put them in my bowl. There was a lot of chicken on that little bird!  I still have the other breast, all shredded and ready for a couple meals in the future. Not bad - 5 meals out of a $10 hot chicken!  #2022pad #cooking #cookingforone #chickensoup #rotisseriechicken #yum
11Sep22  Neurmal has a style all her own. She looks grumpy with a resting b*tch face, but is the sweetest cat I've ever known. She doesn't bite, she only scratches the side of my bed *!!) and her scratching posts.  She waits, ever so patiently in the mornings until I drag myself out of bed, and only THEN does she meow like a crazed hungry kitty waiting for her food.  She makes biscuits on the floor (kneads the floor with her paws) while meowing for her food so it can look like she stamping her feet impatiently. Which makes me laugh, and in the mornings - that's really amazing for me.  She has taken over as the only cat in this villiage and takes her patroling duties seriously.  Plus, she's my gym advisor and tells me when I'm slacking off.  #cf22 #style #catsofinstagram #catstyle #softkitty
09Feb22 A bit red and sweaty after a rowing session.  I spent six consecutive days rowing in order to complete this year's Concept 2 Valentine's Day Challenge.  And yes, I rowed more than 14,000 km and completed the challenge.  #2022pad #rowing #darkhorserowing #homegymlife #keepmoving #iamadarkhorse  #latergram #selfie #rowingselfie
11Sep22  I take a photo of these whenever I do a test because with catarachts I don't trust my eyes.  It's easier to see for sure if there's a bottom line from the camera.  Then I let them hang around so I know the date I last checked.  Anyone else do that? This is called a RAT test in Australia.  #2022pad #covidnegative #justchecking #covidrattest #rat
18Jan22  My shutters in the 'Ready Room' (the front bedroom) had quit working with a loud "thunk" sound on the weekend so I made a couple calls and was put onto this company. Ray and his workmate came and were able to work out that the last time the shutter had been repaired (I have no memory of it ever needing it while I've been here), they used curved bars instead of straight ones and that eventually caused the whole thing not to work.  They had some straight ones they could replace it with that weren't a stock item, and not quite a match, but the repair worked beautifully and then they checked the shutters for the gym window and found the timing was off by a few ticks so quickly fixed that as well.  The fee they charged me was minimal.  So I have no problems sharing their business card. I felt they were absolutely looking out for me rather than lining their pockets.  Good guys!  #fair #tradies #shutterrepairs #latergram
18Jan22  Noble, using portrait mode.  It seems to really show off his soft side.  #catsofinstagram  #tripodkitty #threeleggedcatsofinstagram #2022pad #latergram
