It’s been forever since I even realized or remembered I had a blog. It’s kind of crazy how fast this year has gone!
So, what’s been happening?
Hmm… March 10, 2022 … I had subcutaneous ulnar nerve surgery on my elbow. Today, I had another follow-up on it, after doing an FCE. I fou nd out that I need to have an ultrasound on my elbow because I’m still having pain and numbness through-out my arm. So, since April-ish, I’ve been on 2-lb weight limit, and it’s frustrating as hell!
I just want my arm to work without pain like it did before this injury 11 months ago. Yeah, that’s right. It happened 11 months ago and I’m still dealing with it. I’m scared I’m going to be dealing with it for the rest of my life.
2021 didn’t start the way I expected and it didn’t end the way I expected! But it’s okay. It’s been a wild ride, but I’m stronger, healthier (for the most part), and just ready to begin 2022!
January was me trying to get my feet on the ground and settle into some semblance of a routine. I didn’t quite succeed, but I did get some amazing pictures of the animals in my life, and that counts for something, I do believe!
So, I had planned to blog daily in June. And May. And April. Yeah, I haven’t succeeded at that at all. Work has been crazy. For a while, we were down a cashier and a dishwasher. Now, We’re not down anyone!! My daughter was hired on as the cashier, and a sweetheart was hired for the dishwasher. Both of them are doing pretty good. They both finished off their first week today. I’m ready to see how that all works out!
Life has been pretty hectic too. Madison graduated from high school in May. She then proceeded to turn 18 this month (on the 20th, aka Father’s Day). Monday, she started her first ever job, as I mentioned above. First everything. First job. First interview. First drug test. First (and second) TB test.First orientation. First FULL-TIME job! This kid is rocking this adult life already! Ethan turned 16 in March and did driver’s ed this summer. He just has to do the driving part with the DMV folks next month, and he’s good to go. So glad that’s one less thing that we have to worry about.
In March, I’d bought a new computer. That got zapped within 60 days, and the return policy for Sam’s is 90 days, so we took advantage of that. So, I have another new computer that still doesn’t have all the apps and programs installed. Oh well.
Right now I’m updating from a Kindle Fire and a Bluetooth keyboard. I guess I won’t be able to make any excuses when it comes to getting things done. I’m hoping, since Office is now available on them that I’ll be able to use it for NaNoWriMo this year, since my laptop isn’t lasting, battery-wise.
