Outside it’s pretty wild here. We were lucky and got out for a walk before it got nasty. What a dark and dreary day. Rain, wind, thunder, lightning…yuk. So glad we didn’t have to go anywhere.
It’s fine, inside, though. I’ve been putting off making the kids’ Spring Break photo book and today was the perfect day to get that done. It isn’t all that hard, especially since I’ve made almost twenty of them. I’m sure all the online photo companies are great but I got hooked on Shutterfly so that’s the one we use. Nice project for a rainy day and I could do it sitting on the couch with my laptop. And, I never pay full price. They have so many “deals” that I when I make the books, if I don’t have a special offer, I just wait and within a week, something comes along. This time it was a $30 book for $10. By the time you take care of shipping and handling, it’s more like $20 but I love these books.
So most of my projects and shopping are done for now. One more project…a music slide show for Lana’s First Communion. Maybe I’ll tackle that tomorrow. I’m going to need help with it. Hopefully I’ll feel good enough to get to the Apple Store for help. Jerry’s heading over there tomorrow to continue some work on Excel and see if they can help us with some weird little quirky stuff that’s come up on the iPad and MacBook. I don’t quite have the energy for that yet. Or maybe it’s the inclination. Whatever…I’ll sit around and relax and he can take care of everything. (What else is new?)
On Wednesday I have a Barium Swallow over at Anderson. If that goes well, I may get that tall drink of water and begin to start drinking and eating again. I wonder if I even REMEMBER how to swallow. I’ve got lots of questions for the doctor….what can I eat? how do we decide when to ease up on the feeding tube? How do we quit the feeding tube? WHEN do we quit the feeding tube? (Can you tell I’m getting anxious to get on with my life?)
Life is good. Pain is easily controlled by meds. I’m sleeping well. I’m walking an hour a day (20 minutes each time I get going) I’m certainly not setting the world on fire but I’m feeling pretty human these days. Where’s that guy with the millions? I might take him up on his offer???
