I’m Stretched to the Max

I like quiet, easy going days and routine. That hasn’t happened for several days. We had our lawn aerated and reseeded. We have moss, so they will return to apply lime. Our internet went down for several hours twice, and once in the middle of paying a bill online. I had ferocious shooting pains behind my right ear and thought I’d have to go to the hospital. Tylenol stopped them, but I am still concerned. Our son wants us to go to his girlfriend’s house today to meet her cats. I’m afraid to touch them. I missed visiting the kitties in my rock garden yesterday,. I did go to visit them, but the lawn company was working in that spot. I remembered while watching a movie, so opened a window and stuck my head outside to “talk” to them. Every single time I get on myLot, I get a phone call or texts. It never fails. Oh, no! The phone is ringing right now! Good, it’s for my husband. I need a vacation, but myLot will do. ~Photo is of my grandson and mine~

You have had a hectic few days. Are you ready for your martini? My computer gave me an error message, not the Internet, right in the middle of my Bible Study yesterday morning. It shut down and when it rebooted, I needed to find the lesson and basically start from scratch. I hate it when that happens. I know you must have been totally frustrated. I'm glad you talked to your kitties yesterday.

I'm always ready for a martini, but it will have to wait until the boss makes me one on Friday. I'm sorry about your internet, too. That's so aggravating and frustrating. I'm glad I talked to the kitties, too. I was upset when I realized I didn't visit them.

@DianneN I'm sure you were. Yes, it sure is. If you must wait, you must. I hope you don't have any more frustrating days this week.

@just4him You are so sweet. Thanks. I feel pressured to get off myLot soon to give myself a pedicure. We are going to our son's gf's house and it's warm enough for sandals. lol

What a hectic day! Well, you will be relaxed again. I think you have to see a doctor for your pain behind your right ear. It might come back. I think, you just leave your smartphone in the living room and take a nap in the bedroom for you to relax.

Today is just as hectic! I will mention those pains to my doctor when I see him next month. No time for naps. We were out until late last night. Big sigh!

@thelme55 Tomorrow is our Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. It's the new year, so I will be making a nice traditional dinner for hubs. Our older son may drop by with his wife and my grandkids over the weekend, so I'm extra excited.

Oh my gosh, what was that pain behind your ear - I hope you're ok now! My kids are allergic to cats - so they are always hesitant to touch cats - but I think I know what you mean. I'm mylotting while the kids are in "class" . I guess myLot is kinda like being in a classroom everyday . . . I get to chat with my friends . Your grandson's splits in his gear - oh my !!!

I think it was stress, but not too sure. At least the pain ended quickly. I will mention it to my doctor when I see him. MyLot is my ME place. I love it here. Thanks! My grandson is turning into a sought out goalie from many teams thanks to that split.

Busy time for you. I hope the ear pains stop. Sinuses when the weather changes can cause that with me. Take care of yourself. Cool photo of course.

It's still a madhouse here, but at least that darn ear pain is gone. I had it once in Florida, too, and believe it's stress related. I will mention it to my doctor when I see him. Thanks about the photo!

I am glad to hear that the pain behind your right ear subsided, however I would insist to go to hospital for a check-up if it happens again Dianne! Hope you have a lovely time at you son's girlfriend's place, if you go.

I really hate it when the internet goes down...talk about annoying! I think touching the cats will be OK. I don't think they can transmit the virus. Hope your ear pain is nothing serious.

@DianneN I hope things are better today. Maybe when this is all over you can visit her cats. Can you explain to her how you are feeling about touching them and wait and see how things go? Good thing the phone was for your husband this time. Sorry you could not visit with the cats at their graves and talk to them.

I hate that when I want to do some work and I keep getting interrupted. Luckily lately everyone is leaving me alone and I can catch up on all I missed when I was offline. Not bad a grandson who might play professional hockey and a granddaughter who might win Olympic medals. You have it all including a loving husband and of course, your grown-up children,

You are right about those constant interruptions. As soon as I sat down today, my younger son called to chat before he began his work day. I don't mind him at all. . I'm glad you are being left alone now, too. It's much more pleasurable that way. Thank you!
