Clint would get on the bus in the morning at his house but get off the bus at the Library, which is just down the street from my house. Why the bus can't drop him off in front of my house is unknown but a short walk is no big deal. At least not this time of year,but once we get snow and cold weather, this may not seem like such a cool idea. Whatever, he thinks Kindergarten is awesome and having a good time.
This is one of my favorite photos, we are on a 4-wheeler and my sister and I are just hanging on while Kel wheels us around. It was so much fun. One day I really need to learn how to handle this 4-wheeler on my own. Hell even Clint operates his 4-wheeler!!!
Sadly the warm weather is leaving us and now its prepare for winter. You know "winterize the house,"and that doesn't mean throw a blanket on it -- wish it was that easy!!!
I began winter prep by pulling all the flowers out of the flower pots and hope to take that lovely top soil and spread it amongst my rose bushes. I also got the air out of most of the pool items and bought bright orange storage tubs to put all the pool stuff in for winter. Soon we shall empty the water from the pool,not all but a good amount, remove the pump and cover with tarp, weighted down with jugs filled with water to prevent it from blowing off. Have been told this will work nicely and no need to completely take down and store pool (that would be a real pain in the ass). Then of course we have patio furniture that needs to be packed away along with table and chairs. It just sucks that summer is over and we have to wait another year to enjoy the pool.
Have no real idea what in hell I was doing but obviously thought this hat was worth a try on...what the hell. So, things are looking good. I did something to my shoulder and after an X-ray, was told physical therapy was in order, so I have been going to that twice a week. One nice part is the shoulder massage, now that is delightful and yes, my shoulder is starting to feel much better.
I just love how as I age, various body parts decide to break down or create issues for me, what the hell. In October I'll see my urologist and have my kidneys check, I am having no issues so hopefully no stones are about and if we see any, I'll have them blasted. Not gonna wait like I did the last time, holy shit, that was a long process to get rid of that sucker. Teeth cleaning is on the calendar in November as is my six month check up at the VA clinic.
December gets interesting: dexa scan and then see my oncologist - fun shit. Dermatology this month too. I also see the eye doctor to get eyes measured for surgery in January! On the 23rd lab work for eye surgery in January. Then in January I get medical clearance from my provider so I can have cataract surgery -- holy shit.
However, the game plan is everyone must stay healthy so we can head to Florida in April next year. It's been way too long. Haven't seen my older sister in almost two years and my Nam buddy -- way too long and we got lots of crap to share.
Just in case you wondered!!!!
So that is my updates -- have a lovely weekend and stay happy!!!
