@JackieHN ---that is no lie!!! 

 

Tomorrow I start p/t for my knees---let's see how that goes---and then to get my 2nd booster--let's see how that goes???!!! The first one was no big deal---then back to the ortho dr for injection in my shoulder next week I think.----this one will  not  be a steroid--can't remember what he called it. Have bad reactions to cortisone shots. Was going to chiro Tuesday but think I won't as he gave me a whoopin' on my neck last time that caused some problems.

 

so ants are gone---bug guy came and said if they come back to let apt office know---haven't seen them at all. 

 

Was pretty nice day Saturday--today---downpour. this spring has been so wet and very chilly---not many days even close to the 60's.

Dang it!! Ants are back!!! They are in the laundry closet--so will let the bug guy set the traps on Friday---little monsters!!

 

I got my 2nd booster yesterday--have a very sore, red, arm but that's all. The thing that makes me groan is from the p/t for my knees--geez, am pretty sore from the very few things I have to do---so will do my home work and maybe work out the kinks---I go back Thursday, then 2x a week for at least 4 and maybe 6 weeks.

 

Still waiting for paperwork to finish up the cash I am owed from the"idiot". I keep calling the pension people and they always say oh we are so backed up----I want to scream at them!!! 

 

grrrrrr!!!--pam

Oh goodness about the ants. You can't even use Raid. it would stink up the whole room. When the pandemic was full force unless you had a problem the exterminator wouldn't come to every apartment so I called them and asked what gel they used. We have a history of roaches in the building.. I bought it on Amazon and did it myself. 

 

Sorry about your P/T with your knee. However if all of the pain will help in the long run you just have to bite the bullet. I need to get this finger fixed. It really hurts. 

 

You need the patience of a saint to deal with pension people. From my experience with my pension keep hounding them. You'll eventually get someone competent to straighten out your problem.

Geez, covid numbers are going up again. My friends laugh at me because I don't leave the house unless I have to. I said there is no place I want to go to. amazon fresh delivers everything and in some things they are cheaper than the supermarkets.They have wonderful organic produce and they have my soda.Your supermarkets are much better than ours here. 

 

Fell the other night thanks to husband. We have the equivalent of the roomba made by shark. Husband decides to do the kitchen and blocks off the dining room with a case of water. Well, Jackie had to run to the bathroom and didn;t see the water. He never turned on the lights. It was 6:30pm. The machine is very quiet. I'm semi deaf anyway so I didn't hear it. Over I went. Nothing broken. Just bloody sore. Not only do I have to make this house

 

senior proof now husband proof. 

 

Lannie how are you feeling

@JackieHN ----good grief!!! really!! is he trying to kill you?? 

 

Yes there are more covid cases here too--people just can't get it thru their thick skulls that this thing is not over and prob will never will be!!! I go out but always wear a mask indoors and stay away from crowded places---not that is a sure thing and am sure we all will get it sooner or later---but would like NOT to get sick!!!

 

Yes I will call the union next week---seems like I call every 2 weeks--it's been almost 2 months since this part has been in the works----but lawyers said that they and I, are done--they just want to know when I get the $$.  would like a nice big refund from them--- fat chance, right!!!

Hi all!!

 

2nd booster shot was pretty easy except this time my arm swelled a little, got very sore and now has a hard spot at the injection site--was red and hot-ish--but not much else--p/t was what did me in--man was I sore . going in today for more torture Woman Embarassed

 

And--finally, after me calling for weeks, to the "idiots" union about my portion of the pension--I got paperwork to get it started at least--but will take another month to get it done----was on the phone for a few hours trying to find out what some of gobbly guck was about---so basically--will have to sit and wait for the various paperwork packs to roll in---what a joke!!! Now I will need a tax person to sort it all out as everything is taxable---another rip-off--

 

Was a crazy , windy, messy storm that rolled thru yesterday--many trees, leaves, branches,down,  power outages all around western WA. these storms happen in the late fall and winter usually, - at my place it was sunny too--just craziness.  Now this weekend it is supposed to be nearing 70 and lovely!!!  My plants need some sun, they are not doing much yet---
