Anyway off to the new Day at 5 a.m. again, my usual slipping out of Bed time, have to get to those Computers
Finished my catchup stuff and then checked the Email, HAH! Netflix raising their Price, already at $11.99 a Month
Well I was getting a bit bored with them anyway... so CANCEL! And I signed up at Hulu for a free Month trial
Then $5.99 for a Year and then up to $7.99... Well that is sure better than $13.99 for sure
So what for this new Day? Beats me, I do need something to do that's interesting... What what what?
Last Winter I had my AeroGardens to play with and watch grow, I got tired of that, they are now resting
Now no outside Gardening, only thing inside is one Pineapple Plant, what else did I do last Winter?
OK, 8 a.m. Still 21 Degrees but Sunny, hope for the best! Time to head to the Price Chopper
I am not very far behind on Winners for Novenber so far but I could use a nice BIG Win
Trotted out in the Cold to hot up the Blazer, might as well get as warm as I can on the way
Tooled up to the Price Chopper, traded in some Winners got some new prospects, back home to scratch
Won $15, then time for some late Breakfast... Then thought I would try some more Lottos, headed to the Minit Mart
This time no Winners at all, Oh well, it's only money... Which for me is always in short supply
Then thinking ahead, I got a hankering for Pizza, so back to the Price Chopper for a Digiorno Supreme Thin Crust
While I was there, traded for some more Lottos, won $20 this time but still a loss for the Day
And that took me up to 1 p.m. and still a sunny but very chilly Day out there at 36 Degrees
Back to the TV, took a look at Hulu, some nice old Movies and TV Shows, just might work for me
Netflix was getting overloaded with a lot of stuff that did not appeal to me, Hulu seems a lot simpler
And then on to my regular nothing much Afternoon, Started on some unfinished old Movies I had started earlier
I finished one, decided it was Pizza time, hotted up the Oven and in with the Pizza
After 20 Minutes or so it was time to pour a Glass of Vinto Tinto and Slice the Pizza and attack another Movie
Well, finished that up at 5 p.m. Time for the local News if there is any and check the Weather for Thursday
And then try to stay up as long as Possible to try to make the night as short as I can
Well now, there is that Web Cam Video of Navru picking up the Chair on Monday, how about a silly Video of that?
Not such good Video and the Lighting and Sound not so hot but what the Heck, let's do it!
Started on that, put the Video footage on my Video Editor, did some Editing and Presto... My silly Video
Then an upload, and when that's ready, see what it looks like on the TV...
I wish he had come earlier when the Light out front was a lot better... but at least he has the Chair and he likes it
Later I won a free $5 Lotto Ticket online and took it back to the Price Chopper to trade... Won Nothing on that one
I did win $15 on another trip to the Price Chopper, but it was a loss for the Day after all
Pretty nice Day outside, pretty boring Day inside, just not feeling very peppy for the Day
And nothing much doing, just this and that and trying to find something interesting to do and having no luck
So back to the Afternoon sips and nibbles and boring TV... Ho Hum... just deep in the post-op doldrums
Well... That waa Tuesday... So far at 5:30 a.m. Wednesday not looking any better, I do need something new to do but what?
I did get a call from Pat, she is planning to bring Thanksgiving Dinner to my place on Thursday
Then it will be Chat, Nibbles and Movie time all afternoon, a nice change from the daily boredom
I got my Lottos and then headed back up the Hill to the Price Chopper for a couple Items
Then next Door to Walgreens for another item and then headed home to scratch off $20 in Wins, even up
And then, I wrestled that big Chair out to the Porch, covered it with a Blanket until Navru gets here
Then what? No more plans for the Day... again Ho Hum... Let's get something going here...
Then just fooling around doing little things that needed to be done and a couple that didn't
Like hook up the Web Cam in the front Window, had to run the Cable under the rug to the new Computer Position
My new Cable running is all complete now except the DirecTV Cable, it can wait until they do the Flooring
Tried some Afternoon Movies and TV, just couldn't get interested in much of anything
Just waiting then for Navru to show up, he said 4 p.m but is usually later than he says
Back to the TV to watch the boring News and wait for Navru... and wait and wait, he said he would be here at 4 p.m.
I called him about 4:30 p.m, he said he was coming soon... What does that mean? Still waiting at 5 p.m.
I had my 'Window Cam' set up and was watching outside on my Computer when I saw him finally drive up almost at 6 p.m.
Was dark out there by then, my Porch Light didn't brighten up the scene much but I did get some Video
A knock on the Door, there was Navru and his friend and ready to haul off my old Chair, he did like it very much
They lugged it to his SUV, stuck it in the back, and Navru came back in to give me his thanks
And then all quiet, time to wind up the Day, some Dinner, finish another episode of an old TV show
And off to Bed to see what might happen on a nice Tuesday
OK, Saturday Blog done and Posted, Computer checks done, time for Coffee and Crossword at 5:15 a.m.
Ho Hum, all over again, only 6:20 a.m. this is gonna be a long long Day... My Crossword wouldn't work, still Saturday's result showing
What to do? Breakfast?, not hungry at all... Too early to go for Lottos, maybe go check on that Computer move?
Well now, that was so easy, 7 a.m. Computer moved to the other side of the Room, all done now but one Cable
The DirecTV Cable has to go down the same side of the Room as the HDMI Cable from the Computer to the TV
And I can do that now whenever I feel like it or even wait until they put in the new Floor
And then, did my Blood Pressure again and still great! Didn't take that new Beta Blocker all Day on Saturday
And not on Sunday Morning either, looks to me like I don't need it, it is now History
Bright Sun for the Day and time to head out for my Lottos, had $30 worth to trade for $20 more 'maybes'
Stopped in at the Price Chopper, got my $20 worth of losers and headed out... Stopped to get a Photo of the Wienermobile
I showed the Video on this page on my Phone to the Oscar Meyer guy in the Photo above, he watched the whole thing
I told him I would put his Photo on my Blog and then add the link to the Video too, in case he wanted to see it full size
And once again that was 'My Day'... Does anyone remember that back in the Old Days?
Frsnklin Roosevelt's wife Eleanor used to write a daily Newspaper Column called 'My Day'
But of course that was back in 'my days' in the 30s, you probably weren't tlere
On to the usual nothing much Afternoon and Evening, sips and nibbles and a whole lot of TV, News, Videos and Movies... Ho Hum
Then somewhere in the Night I came up with another idea for another boring Video, might that a try on that Monday
Well... Says 46 Degres and light Rain, just what I need... another Dreary Day to dampen my feelings even more
And it does say going to 59, that's not all bad... Took a peek out the Window, dark and dreary yeah, but no Rain yet
Next, checked my Blood Pressure like they said to do, and for the 5th time since I started, looking great
This Morning just about exactly like all the Experts say it should be... So there too!
Well then excuse me while I put my Sheets and Blankets in the Washer, and let's get all shined up for the Day
8 a.m. Into the Shower... ahhhhh, then Shampoo, out to dry and a nice close Shave and wowee! Don't that feel good!
I can't think of anything else that feels so good as to be clean... Yeah
OK then, where to go for Lottos?, didn't win anything at the Fast Stop Friday so decided to try a few more from Navru
Headed out the Door, the Cat was waiting in the Wet for Breakfast, went back in to get him some
Up the Hill past Navru's place, saw his Car was there so decided to go to the Price Chopper instead
I got my Lottos, then back to get some Cool Whip to make Banana/Raisin/Oatmeal Cookie Pudding and headed Home
Got some Orange Juice to sip and then worked $25 in Winners, up $5 for the Day... Oh well
Cruising on through the Day, feeling pretty good except an aching Back, now what's causing that?
Keeping busy with a little housekeeping, this and that, put the Sheets back on the Bed
Put some Goodies in the Oven for Dinner later, unloaded the Dishwasher and began loading it back... such Fun
And then I got an Idea, the next Project that will take some time... Prepare for the new Flooring
I told Tom to hold off if he could and he said just tell him three Days ahead when I wanted to go ahead
So that is pending but before they start I need to do some wire Rerouting and that's my new Project
Just thinking, get rid of the big easy Chair I don't use much, then move the Tables and Computer
Move Two Tables and the Computer to the opposits side of the Room, move one Table back from that Side
Then I can run the Wires from the Computer and DirecTV Cable down that side of the Room to the TV
That will remove the Wires from under the Rug where they are now that will be replaced by the new Flooring
And so I started on that process and bit by bit, didn't want to get too overworked moving stuff
I would move something, then sit down and watch TV, move something else, go get some thing to nibble
Worked on that most all afternoon and fially got it to the point for a recess, all done but moving the Computer
So then it was time for Dinner, I had some Meatloaf in the Freezer, hotted that up, made some fresh Mashed Potatoes
Then finished that up while finishing up the TV for the Day and off to Dreamland all over again
And, second Day checking out the Carvedilol Pill, took one last Night but skipped the Morning one
Again... not feeling like a 'pass out' and no going back to Bed, might just drop that one
I am again Checking my Blood Pressure now, looked good Thursday Afternoon and again great this Friday Morning
Thought I would run down to the Fast Stop to trade in my $2 Coupon, at least I can't lose on a free Coupon
Just looked out, another dark dreary Morning but then at 54 Degrees, a lot better than Thursday... and going to 68!
And then off to the Fast Stop, gave Navru my Coupon, he coudn't figure how to work it so I went to the Price Chopper
I wanted to get more Tickets too but I had forgotten my Billfold, so back home to scratch my Loser freebie... (figgers)
Got my Billfold and headed back to the Minit Mart for some Gas, then back down to the Fast Stop for my Lottos
Scratched Four, lost Four, another $20 loss, but for the Month I am only down $5 so far... not a bad take
On to the Day and it was a sunny warm Spring Day outside but I stayed inside and stayed bored
I was watching TV early and checked an old Video I had on Vimeo... Well not so old, a last new New Years Video
It was mostly done with a 'Animated .gif' of Pictures of me through the Years and later I had made a better one
So I deleted that Video online at Vimeo and re edited it, deleting the older Animation and adding the new one
Satisfied with the the Render, I uploaded it back to Vimeo, project for the Day finito...
And again, that was just about it for the Day, just working through the long Afternoon and Evening
And as I said, Ho Hum, I do need something more to do on these long boring Days...
Was just wondering... The last few Mornings I have started on my Computer Routine about the usual time
First taking the Carvedilol Tablet (Beta Blocker) they sent me when I got out of the Hospital...
Then finishing my Bank, Email and Facebook checks on the Computer, started working my Crossword
And then would get so sleepy I felt like I was going to pass out and would go back to Bed
Then later after a nap I would feel OK, more or less... but then I thought... Could it be that Pill?
I looked it up online, yeah lots of side effects, decided to put it off on Thursday until after my Computer stuff
And guess what? Did my checks, worked my Crossword including a second 'Jumble' and me no get sleepy! Hmmmmmmmm...
Well now, Thursday and my last Appointment for the Month... What's the Weather for my Trek over to NKC?
Was nice and Sunny and Warm on Wednesday but now back to 31 Degrees at 7 a.m. No Bueno! No me Gusto!
But saying it will make it to 48 by Noon when I leave and then on into the low 50s...
Then the Clock ticked on to clean-up time... And feeling better than usual for the last Weeks, getting over it?
A Shave, Shower, Shampoo and then into some nice clean Clothes and ready to meet the Day
10 a.m. Ticking on to Travel time, Pat called, said she wants to ride along with me
A quick run up to the Price Chopper to lose another $20... Then back up the Hill to Pat's place at 11:15
Pulled in her Drive, she was already out walking, got in and we headed to North Kansas City, chatting all the Way
Into the Parking Garage at NKC Hospital Pavilion and then across the Bridge and up to the 6th Floor
Checked in, a short wait and ushered in by the Nurse, one that I had seen many times while I was in the Hospital
A few checks and then she said the Doctor would be in, quite a bit of a wait and Doctor Oza came in
Then the follow up Questions and Answers and what might be expected and best Wishes for the future
I don't think I could have found a better Doctor for my problem...
And then, on to the usual very boring Afternoon, I just need an idea for another Hobby to use up all that idle time
At least I was feeling some better for most all that long long Day, stil too early to Bed and getting up every two hours
Now all the Appointments done for the Month... a couple in December and then what? A new Year maybe?
Then a slow start for Wednesday, no rush for anything, just taking it easy...
Finished most of my Morning routine, then took a load of Trash out to the Dumpster that was overdue
The decided to go find some Winner Lottos, on the way out, the Cat had returned and mewing to me
First time I had seen him on the Porch since I got back... so I went back in and got him some Breakfast
And then off to the Price Chopper for Lottos, bought $20 worth, won $5 back but still ahead afor the Month
Back then for some of 'Pat's Pie' for a late Breakfast and a TV News Catch Up
And then I did some running around, I had some low Tires on the Blazer, didn't want to bend over
So I thought I would get a 'Lube Job' and let them check everything, did that, then headed to the Fast Stop
Traded in my $5 Win for another $5 Win and chatted a bit with Navru
Back home hen to finish out a very nice Day outside but a very boring Day inside, just nothing
And so, checked out of the TV stuff at 6 p.m. then off to Bed for a fairly good Night
OK... 8:30 a.m. Time for a Shave, Shower and Shampoo and clean Clothes and get ready to head out
Still Cloudy but up a Degree to 52... A bit better than on Monday's trek and if lucky not as far to walk from the Car
So, I headed out about 9:45 a.m. got to the Medical Building right on time, and got a close Parking spot
Up to the Second Floor, down the Hall and there it was... More papers to fill out, why don't they share with the others?
Into the Exam Room for questions and checks, then the Doctor came in to tell me what it was all about
And it was mainly just a 'Follow Up'... Keeping an eye on me to see how things work out, then they took a Blood Draw
Then She said I was all done for the present, would schedule me in Three Months for more checks
And the bright spot was... They saw no need for any 'Chemo' as most everything indicated it was not necessary
That was that and I headed back, got Home at 11:30 a.m. and what to to the rest of the Day? As usual... nothing
Well I needed to eat something and did need a couple things from the Price Chopper...
And I had an Award coupon for 5% off the Goodies and so back to the Price Chopper to chop Prices
Bought extras of everything I needed so I could use the Coupon to the best effect, only a couple bucks off though
And back to unload and on to the rest of the dreary Afternoon
And then a Phone Call from the Cardio people, the guy said the Test result was Great and no problems
So maybe that's the end of that part, looks like this extra stuff is winding down some, next... a follow up by the Surgeon
That Appointment is on Thursday and that seems to be the last for November... and I sure hope so
Finished out the Day as usual... Bored... and off to Bed too early again
