)))... I know that has to be worrisome to you -- anything involving the spine certainly sends up a red flag, especially with a child. It does sound like this chiropractor is trying to be gentle and take time. That sounds like a good sign to me.
I'm glad you're seeing the pediatrician about this too, but also glad you aren't blindly following the pediatrician's advice. (legal dose of meth???) I am so glad ddil doesn't want dgs medicated for his "highly functioning autism."
))) NO ONE would blame you if you do just cut off all involvement with this bully. She obviously can't work well with others. I think if I were you I'd just cut my losses and tell her to have at it.Harriet
, I have a friend who seems to use her Air Fryer every day. She loves it. It sounds like it would be perfect for dh's dietary needs here, but he is so locked into his few meal choices that he is afraid to branch out. So we never fry anything, Just corn on the cob... every night...
My countertops are very cluttered, in spite of my best efforts. DH has lots of stuff out all the time. He lays out his breakfast stuff for the week... stack of bowls, juice glasses, spoons, etc... He leaves grocery list out all the time, so we can add to it. He has stack of stuff that goes to ds all the time. Some of this I contribute to, so I can't really blame him. Medicines. Medicine dispensers. Water glass (which I seldom use.) Stack of medical/insurance papers. It's ridiculous. It all looks fairly NEAT, but there's just a lot of it.

Glad you got so much done!Elizabeth
, I was so sorry to hear about Tiki. So glad your dd had a chance to say good-bye and is accepting of it all. Glad Briggs got a forever home, too! Hope your back feels better soon!

... glad you're joining us more these days! Can I ask what kind of surgery you're having? (If you don't want to say, just ignore me.
) I hope everything goes well.

... Oh my... I know you ARE glad to be home! That is quite a long trip to have to deal with all that social stuff, family stuff, etc stuff. (((BIG HUGS)))

OH! Speaking of insurance. Dh's got a notice from his insurance company (retired teacher w/Medicare are on different plan than retired w/out Medicare. His is U nited H ealth (?) I think that's it. Mine is BCBS.) Anyway -- he got a notice that some drug they gave him during the arteriogram was denied coverage and he owes the hospital 60 CENTS. I said, it will cost more to get it to them than it will to pay them. Just smh... but he has an follow-up appt next Monday, so we'll probably take care of it then, just to make sure his record stays clear. Harmony
, I definitely need my Sunday nap. We just do NOT "do" Sunday afternoons around here except in VERY rare circumstances. And dh seems to avoid those, LOL! (Thinking of two child-cousins bday parties that I attended without him.) In our case, it's the early church service that really gets to us, b/c we have to get up about three hours earlier than our normal waking time. This Sunday, after trip to college town, I was REALLY wiped out. I even forgot to look at my Sunday card, and therefore, missed my allergy shots yesterday. (I took them today, no problem.)
The bullet journal is probably just going to be over-the-top for me... I mean, I don't want to give up my cards or my checklist or my weekly to-do list/stuff that's not on the cards (and yes, some stuff that is). That saves writing stuff down over and over. I can NOT give up my calendars. Have to have purse calendar for scheduling when we're away from home (doctor's offices, etc.) Have to have wall calendar in kitchen so dh can see what's going on and I can see it when on the phone in there. Have to have bathroom calendar b/c that is my "command center." That's where I keep my cards and checklists and weekly master list. So WHY do I think I need a bullet journal???
But I am going to try it out for the next few weeks and see if there is anything there that will help me. I'm kinda thinking it would be a better way to organize gratitude and prayer list... since I am so COMPELLED to write, perhaps this would channel me in a way that I wouldn't be embarrassed for ds/ddil/dgrands to see if I died suddenly.I really do need to do some SERIOUS journal purging. I need to cull all the bad stuff/worries/fears/panics, and "only keep the moments that shine" as Ruth Graham advised her daughter.
So... Monday Monday...
I have a few ta-das: (not in this order)
* walked a mile
* colored hair
* breakfast, Bible, vitamins
* 2nd load of laundry in washer
* 1st load of laundry wrinkling in dryer
* returned out-of-date chicken to Wmart, got fresh chicken, talked with friend there whose dh also has heart issues
* talked to ds (dgrands will be here in about an hour while he gives lessons and ddil goes to class)
* messaging with a dfriend/newspaper reporter who wants to do a story on dh -- b/c dh has seen 60 consecutive rivalry games between us and that Other Team in our state. That is quite a record, I would imagine. DH has not missed one since he was 6 years old.
Must take care of laundry!
