Dentures

I wore my top dentures yesterday. The bottom ones fit but want to move so I took those out. Hope my final ones in December fit good. But it was nice. I could drink better and ended up drinking more water. yay and no straw. Ate a couple things. Still more practice to go

As for today I had a lot of slobbery and ended up taking out. I got upset because I failed. I had to take a crazy drug and take them out. Hubby is so hopeful with that. Love him lots.

At least I wore them out for awhile which was good. I’m so anxious to wear them. Need to talk to the doctor about a slobber drug. The blood pressure pill is only making my lips dry. I have to say at least I don’t eat chips and such anything hard because my gums won’t let it.

I eat decent just miss my fruit. Point is take care of your teeth. I did I just didn’t go to the dentists enough. I brushed them everyday but didn’t floss has much as I should have. Makes me sad. I had pretty teeth.

Baking Brownies

I made brownies by myself. First time baking on my own. It was tiring but so fun to accomplish being I had a stroke last December. My right hand helped a little bit. I’m glad I have my mixer because I tried mixing by hand because that’s how I normally mix and I couldn’t mix it. Left hand not good at mixing. I even cleaned up my mess afterward.

I had to break the eggs in the measuring cup tp pick out the shells. Not good at one handed hand breaking. πŸ™‚

thoughts on decorating

i watch hgtv regularly, noticed they like to put books on shelves backwards. OMG i want to see what the book is. i want to know what people have to read. im nosy like that. just looks weird.

im still one hand typing, sorry things are not capitalized.

most shows like using all white. i like color! some white is cool.

i love to decorate for all holidays. i dont know yet if i will do much this year. decorations are downstairs and one hand makes it challenging, but will take time. makes me cry to lose another thing i enjoy. losing a hand one one doesnt realize what they lose.

i cry everyday when a memory comes up. i try to not take the crazy med even though its low dose,0.5 mg. sometimes small cry fits other times big. it does clear my nose. lol i go through a lot of kleenex! my family asks what is wrong and i cant say because ill cry more.

but i took crazy pill, eating a cupcake, and drinking a pop. but i am drinking a veggie fruit drink too. i know not to eat sugar but damn i got to enjoy life!

questions

I dont know what to think. Publisher said no refunds already started. ugh. my life this year.i should have read better.

my arm doesnt want to work. it hurts most of the time. i cant help think of what was. then i cry. im losing hope. i dont think i will get better. i moved my stuff out my original creative cave. i dont want to be where it happened. in fact art is not for me. once in awhile but not like it was. i hope to work if my arm ever works again. plus really need to work on downsizing. start throwing away.

ive lost everything i enjoy. writing, journals,drawing,yardwork,sports,eating cause i lost my teeth. but i guess in a way mostly bad eating.

ive even lost interest in reading.been on same book 100 page. should have been done in a few hours.

just same day, watch tv. so damn bored. im use to being on the go. cant even drive.

Distractions or Procrastination

I can waste hours upon hours of each day by logging on to social media. I have liked so many pages from books to health that reading the articles takes my entire day once I get started.  

Sigh.

Each day I try not to. I make lists, I make schedule times, and I still log in and browse around endlessly. I have also set timing on my phone, while it helps to a certain point, I still go on.  

I do not have a timer on the desktop, so I browse the internet A LOT!  

I say every day that I am going to do better tomorrow and then I repeat the mistakes of the day before. I am a creature of habit. I need to figure out how to stop the repetition.  

I want to get back to reading books, drawing, drafting my stories, and exercising. Oh, I love to learn as well. I used to watch videos and take free courses. I miss all that. 

Got to break the habits!

I need to practice in Word! OMG, I have screwed this up several times. Β

I decided to do Word because I miss the spelling check and the grammar check in WordPress. I will then copy it over to my blog. I hate the writing tool there anymore. Β 

My editor score right now is 69%Β  Crap! Β

I keep changing this article even after pasting it over here.

Shaking my head.

I hate this block crap.

Today I did go through my many emails of blogs I follow. I am going to put on my list to read them more often than every few months. Lists again! LOL

How many of you do lists? Do you follow? I think I just like making them. πŸ™‚

Unhinged the Movie

The daughter and I went to the movies on Sunday early afternoon. We loved getting to watch a movie at a theater again! πŸ™‚ Our theater is a family owned one, they do own several in our state, but still small. So since June they could only show old movies. I wanted to go to a few but didn’t work out. Summer time we don’t always get to the movies but do like going all the other months. We probably see one every month or two months. Love the theater and I really hope they survive this virus. I’m not one to download movies. We did watch one and can’t even remember the title, it was a Disney one. I would rather go to a big screen to watch a movie.

We watched Unhinged! Oh, it was good. All about road rage and it is a scary thought that it could and probably does happen. Russell Crowe was soooo good in it! He was evil to the core! If you like movies definitely see this one!

I loved eating popcorn from the theater! Yum. We had only 4 others in the theater so it was like having our own viewing. The older lady behind us yelled yes at one point of the movie and it was funny but we were thinking it too! πŸ™‚

We are definitely going to go to more movies! The daughter and son are going to see one next week while I watch the granddaughter! πŸ™‚

I do have to say it was strange not having more people in the theater including employees. Sad. But hopefully it will improve.

Save the theaters! πŸ™‚

My Shopping Is Changing

I don’t really shop a lot but it definitely has changed this year thanks to wearing the mask. I don’t like them. I swear I sweat and itch too much. I try that don’t think about it but it doesn’t work. So, no more grocery shopping but a week to every two weeks. I’m not an online shopper but now may have to do some that way. I do go through drive thrus a lot for food. I hope to go to the movies once new ones come out because I feel like this is going to ruin their business. 😦 I don’t have to wear it while watching because I can’t go without popcorn and a pop! πŸ™‚

If anything, I should save money! Which that will be a great thing! πŸ™‚ Just hope things go back to normal.

I feel sorry for the kids going to school. I do believe they need to, so mask it is. I have one left and he has been working all this time so he should be ok wearing the mask. But then again, he is a teenager. LOL I just see no fun going. I guess welcome to him on early adult life! Life isn’t always fun. LOL

I hope everyone stays healthy! πŸ™‚

Back…I think

I have no excuse for not blogging other than not doing it. πŸ™‚ I did let my site go back to the free version, so I had to redesign it. I like the new design. I see there are some new features if a paying account. I will ponder that for awhile if I finish the year strong. πŸ™‚

I still miss the check spelling and english button. 😦

The son did graduate in May. The school only did an online ceremony which was good but I think they could have done a regular ceremony after seeing several friends’ kids having one. 😦 Now, we have another senior and so hope he gets one. He was going to do the online learning until they showed what classes were offered. He was disappointed but switched to going to the school. He doesn’t fear the virus because he has been working the whole time other than a month and they take his temperature every time, but he had hoped for the online since it sounds like little socializing at school. 😦

I still do not know anyone who has had it. I hope it stays that way. πŸ™‚

The son that graduated stayed with his job until about June and then quit because there was a kid he worked mainly with that was not nice to him. He wished he wasn’t like that because he misses the job a bit. Maybe things worked out because his car has quit and would have been difficult to get him to the job because it was 30 minutes away. He has been helping me out and chilling until hopefully this virus slows down and then find a job. He gets anxiety with wearing the mask. He has allergies so sneezes a lot which isn’t a good thing right now. LOL He won’t take any medicine. Which is good because he doesn’t like pills but yet he would feel better if he did, perhaps. LOL

I have been busy watching the granddaughter when the daughter goes to work. I forget how much a toddler wears me out. I just don’t have the energy now to do it ALL. LOL I am amazed how I did it in my 20s and 30s. πŸ™‚ The daughter has met a very nice man who I think may be the one! He is really nice and polite. Win Win. πŸ™‚

Hubby is still truck driving but definitely is counting down the days to retire, 2 years! πŸ™‚ I’m counting the days as well. Ready for him to be home all the time! πŸ™‚

Our 3 1/2 year old refrigerator broke this week. Sucks. So we got to decide on a new one. Just sucks that it has to go to the appliance graveyard. We all liked it. πŸ™‚ It was a challenge this week with me watching the granddaughter 24/7 since her mom had her Army AT. Both boys helped a lot with trying to figure out the problem and cleaning out all the WASTED food! 😦 Needless to say we ate out a lot but we do more than normal now since this virus has showed it’s ugly face. We do have our old fridge downstairs and the repairman got it to not leak anymore. Yay! But the hubby and son said no way they are hauling it upstairs again! LOL It is heavy and the stairs are not straight up, they are a challenge. We do like having that one down there for drinks and over flow of food. πŸ™‚

We haven’t done anything this summer since the virus. We really missed not being able to see the oldest son and his family in May. He says he may get to come here for Christmas. Cross fingers! πŸ™‚

I hope everyone is healthy! Have a good weekend!
