the place is looking better despite that I don't have all my pictures up and misc. things are still not found -- like my cd case. The yards need a ton of work, but I;m getting there with the help of Helena.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

The shelves are together, Helena's bedroom is getting there. I have to sweep every day -it's crazy. I am down to 160.6 and I am not sure how, but I'll take it.
Tim seems a little less grumpy after I asked if an exterminator could spray for grumpiness. Helena's been getting into the weirdest things. Gotta find more to keep her occupied.

The shelves aren't put together and the Helena bedroom is still covered with boxes. Tim did do some yesterday and that helped, but I am anxious to get the room together.
Tim hasn't really been in a great mood - even Sherry noticed.
I've had no appetite - nothing sounds good and I am afraid some things will come up.

Sherry asked me both Saturday and Sunday if I could take Helena for a while. I couldn't - too much to put away. She's wanting me to watch her a couple hours on Tuesday and Thursday. I can do that.

We moved our stuff in, but there's no way everything is how it should be. I was non-stop Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Now I am exhausted.

I started back at therapy. I want to be able to move my arms a little more.

Tim has been working hard at the house, but it didn't look like he did much - it was time-consuming work. Sarah and Tim came over yesterday and today and kicked out a lot of the painting. I am so grateful.

The stomach gives me fits in spurts. I can't over-do anything or my arm will hurt. I must have been walking more because my feet hurt last night.

Tim is still trying to do everything and grouches about it, I try to ignore it.

stomach is still bothering me. and the arm. I haven't been doing much of anything and we are running out of time. Time keeps telling me he will do it. then he gets grouchy because he has so much to do. there's no winning with him sometimes. Ricky still runs from him when he grouches.

I broke my upper right arm in 3 places on 2/10. I fell trying to get into Sherry's car. I am a little better but still not completely able to move the arm. I am tired of being in the house, but must be anyway because of Covid19. Barb caught it after her liver and kidneys started failing. She passed yesterday morning. It broke my heart to know she was by herself. Sandy caught it from her.

I slept better last night. I find that when I get up, I just don't have much energy or desire to do anything. Other than going to CVS on Sunday, I haven't been out of the house. I think this might have something to do with it.

When Tim is home, he is either sleeping or playing on the play station with James. I know that we will be closing next week and I hope working on the house will get us to spend time together.

still on the computer way too long. I need to get boxes and pack some more stuff, I went to the back doctor yesterday and he will be trying another procedure to see if that helps. I go to the gynecologist on Thursday for the test that should confirm if I have an incontinence issue and what kind it is. She said I may have both.

The sleep is still not good but I think it might be a little better. I find myself spending way too much time on the computer and not going out much. I don't want to make a lot of noise when Tim is sleeping. I need to come up with a better ksystem.

I think I've finally turned the corner and am getting better.

Sherry said yesterday that she might not have Helena spend the night because she wakes up too early and then it's too hard to get her back on schedule. It can't be that hard.

so much for no one throwing up - Sherry. We looked at a couple houses today. Cute neighborhoods. If I could take the 2nd house and put it anywhere else, I would have told them I'd take it. Steep front yard and driveway was impossible.

Helena spent the night Saturday night and came down with the flu. I started feeling punk the day before yesterday. Throat hurt all night last night. Sherry is sick too. she talked to a nurse who said the one going around is more like a cold. At least so far no one has thrown up.

Mass was a little difficult this year. There was a large family taking two rows in front of us. The boy behind us threw up just as it started. It made me miss having my family with me. Then Sherry was thinking of the baby and that was hard on her.

It was nice being at Sarah's. A lot of laughter and I needed that.

last night was a testament. Ricky woke me up about 3. I took the mask off and just dozed for about an hour. I put it back on and slept a good 1.5 hours.
I cleaned today. the back hurt so bad that I laid on the couch and dozed a couple hours.
sherry said Helena's still sick. she asked that if H isn't better tomorrow if I could take her to the dr. I will be getting shots for my back in the morning. I feel guilty that I had to decline, but the back hurts too bad

The new doc didn't really say anything about the bloodwork. I have a tear in the heel spur and some sprained muscles.

Helena lost her first tooth yesterday.

I have to wait until Friday to get the results on my foot.
Sherry said she was sick last Monday. She went to Nashville Tuesday. She was really sick Wednesday and I was worried about her. Over the weekend, I went online to view her pictures. I couldn't connect with the link. I put in Google photos and all her photos came up. One was a pregnancy test that was positive. I asked her about it yesterday and she immediately started crying. She miscarried last week.

I fell backwards out of the tub Wednesday night. I hit the toilet on the way down. I have a terrible bruise on my leg.

Helena got an adorable black puppy yesterday. She's so sweet but no name yet. Helena got up at 5 wanting to go home to see the puppy.

I got into the foot doctor today. Heel spur seen very clearly. some stull I've already been doing - ice, rubs for pain. No a patch and a prescription. Must do more research.

When I got on the plane the young guy in the seat next to me was so polite. It got me to think that Detroit needs an attitude adjustment.

I've complained about stuff that's not right in Detroit. Maybe I was being hard, but things that Wilma are paying for are not getting done. Kayla got a staph infection and the house was gross. But....I have to adjust my attitude a bit.

The girls left today. Just before, Helena came into the family room and told me that she already missed me. I was in a rotten mood for a while.

Helena's used to all her things being here and she started to get a little bored. She is playing by herself with me more.

My pictures are now all sorted. Now to start checking to see if tI hey are in the computer. I don't want anything to happen to the ones I have in the computer, so I know I want to back them up.

The pictures were somewhat in order. I can't believe how much time it took just to make sure they were in better order. I think I put 6-7 hours into it this week. Not good for the step count, but it's done

It's raining outside, Tim isn't here, and it's too quiet without the girls.
We stopped at Wendy's last night and ate in the car before the movies. We got to see 2 rainbows pop up, fade and then come back. We saw the movie "Rocketman" about Elton John. It was good, not spectacular.

Sherry is mad at me again. She asked me at the beginning of the week what night I would keep Helena this weekend. I told her that I wouldn't be doing it this weekend. I worked yesterday and tomorrow is my anniversary. She said I didn't. then she accidentally called me so I called back. She said that she is thinking to have Helena always go to after-care when school starts so I could rest. ??? Do we need to go to counseling together?

I really am glad that Helena and I still get to spend time together. I remember that Sherry was 4 when my Dad passed and she really doesn't have much of a memory of him.

Sherry goofed my schedule again. She said Helena would go to the Y on MWF. After I made cleaning schedule, she said it would be T when there was a field trip. Any kind of schedule I had when school was in is gone. I don't mind shaking it up, but somewhat of a schedule would be nice.

Still trying to get Sherry's stuff out. We are all running out of steam. Last night was the first night without them here. The house is so quiet and even Ricky misses them.

I was up at 5 this morning and couldn't fall back asleep. I will probably doze just before Sherry gets here tonight to get more stuff. Then I won't be able to fall back asleep.

I am getting to the point where I am exhausted. Sherry slept until 10:30 and then wanted me to go help at the house. It's to the point where things are clean and she needs to put things where she wants them. I spent time picking up the apartment yesterday to have her pull things out and have it look crazy again. I think she's probably aggravated with me, but ...I am willing to help but I have my things to do.

Not sleeping well. I am tending to worry about how much I will have to do when Sherry moves this weekend. It will be an adjustment for us, even the dog. But then I remind myself that this is Sherry's responsibility.

I cleaned a new house yesterday - a friend of Theresa. I busted my fanny for 6 hours and then picked up Helena. I am paying for it today.

I woke up with somewhat of a renewed determination. How long will it last? Realized that not staying a little busy is hurting me as I will pick when I am bored. I knew that - just admitted to myself that I am doing that.

I cleaned today for a lady who I thought got my name from Theresa. The friend of Theresa called me afterwards. Woo hoo. I just am so sore still.
