Easy enough to find something to write about today. Today is the first Monday of the month and it’s Tehachapi Mountain Quilt Guild meeting day. I received a call from Paulette Sherry, a fellow member, last night. She called to offer to pick me up and take me to the meeting. I was actually debating on whether I wanted to go because I knew I would have to drive myself and my shoulder had been giving me fits almost continuously for the past couple of days. So I gratefully accepted her offer.

Fast forward to this morning and after 2 extra-strength acetaminophen and a cup of coffee, I’m doing o.k. I noticed that my computer’s clock hadn’t changed and wondered why that was. When I went in to check it, I discovered it was set for Arizona time — no daylight savings in Arizona!! Problem resolved. I changed the time zone and voila! I have 30 min. before Paulette will be here to pick me up. And I’m not in pain…

I have to say that this is a glorious moment for me. I told Robert this morning that I wanted this pain thing to be over and done with. He said, “Me too, momma.” I know it has to be difficult for him — he can’t do anything to take my pain away, and I’m such an independent cuss that I go ahead and do things I shouldn’t be doing rather than ask him for help. Then he barks at me about asking him for help. <sigh> I’m going to have to work on that one…

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, please be safe today, be well and be happy. Happiness is a state of mind, you know — and do tell those you love that you love them. Everyone in your life is important — they are your life and your life would be incredibly different without them.


About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    I take two Tylenol once in a while at bed time, and the relief usually lasts for two days.

    I’m having to take them more than I like. Some mornings the pain is so bad I take the Tylenol before my morning coffee. BUT, the pain/exercise are doing their magic and I’m able to move better/further without pain. Such a wonderful feeling!
