Things are going great!!

First things first, TODAY is my 14th year since diagnosis. I was standing in our driveway and Barclay took the phone call from the awful doctor. Doesn’t matter, here I am!!!!  So onward. Next week I get my labs in the middle of all this and we’ll see what my numbers do. Up or down??? I’ll deal with it one way or another.

It’s the weekend and B has no labs till Monday so we can relax. I’m heading over to Ikea as they charged me for 2 paring knives but I only bought one. I’m not sure how that will work but I’ll try. Plus I bought this darling fold out bed for our daughter to sleep on here but then discovered that the couch does fold down to a bed. Okay, Barclay figured it out I just kinda looked at it and didn’t connect the dots. Oh, well.  So I will return that(insert sad face as it’s really cute). But I don’t need it now and then at home I’d have to store it so, decision made.

It’s all going really well and so far and now it’s just waiting till we can go home. Although next week is labs one day, clinic the next and then repeat so going home isn’t too feasible.

Tomorrow both kids are coming down so we can have Fathers day here.  They are doing a great job keeping things going at home. Which, surprisingly, is a lot of work mostly due to having pets, chickens and large garden areas.

We are off for a small walk and BTW Sacramento is having a serious cool down so we are VERY comfortable…. Todays high is only going to be 84 so really nice.

Another Ikea trip.

I need to return the shelf we bought for the bathroom. since we bought the shelf unit we don’t need the shelf where the other one was. So that’s the main reason.  But then we decided to get a small metal cabinet for cat litter and dog food. Right now, the cat litter bag is on the floor and I really don’t like looking at it.  This is a nice cabinet that’s only $40. Ikea has this new thing called Click and Collect where you order and pay online and then pick up at the local Ikea.  We’re lucky to have one only 50 minutes away. their free coffee is always yummy. And the breakfasts are $1.99.

We’re not getting the breakfast today, but we might get the free coffee.

Then tomorrow I have the eye doctor appt. Since this whole thing with Medicare is coming up, I need to get glasses while I’m still covered with B’s UHC. It completely sucks that vision and dental plans are so poorly addressed in Medicare. I mean, REALLY??? If you’re older don’t you need that more??? I asked our dentist when I switch to medicare what is different? And the receptionist says,” Oh we don’t take Medicare. ”  So I’ve been a patient with Pier 210 Dental in Auburn, Ca for almost 40 years and now I can’t get my dental needs there. WTF????
