September 23 – 1


My absence has been what it was since September 18 because Bing Crosby the Cat injured his right back leg while frolicking on my walker and sprained the tendons.  He was sore for a couple of days and by today he is back to his old self.  As soon as the vet was opened Wednesday morning September 19, DKF and I wrapped Bing in a towel and took him to get his leg checked out.  The vet, who Bing likes, took good care of him and me who was panicky and would not wait a day to see if he would be okay.  Now, today, worries have left me enough that I do not have to watch his every move and wonder where he is at.

With this being the weekend and Sunday, I rarely sleep in during the week.  Today I slept in until 8:15 AM.  My IRIS hired worker AR will be here around 3 PM to 8 PM.  I am feeling a little sad that she has three more work days with me before she leaves IRIS to work full-time at the high school with kids with special needs.  AR has a cold and I hope/pray that I do not catch it this week.  I hope she feels better soon.  Anyway, I am glad I am up writing once again.  The past few days have been a little overwhelming and a little tiring.

September 18


How about this one?  Here I am writing my first scoop of the day.  I feel I have not written in my diary for days although it is not exactly true.  I have been writing – not as much as I would like to an have done so in the past.  I am busier now—a—days.  It works for me.  The past several months, beginning January 2017, has had its ups and downs, but I am still here as often as I can.  In fact, I have not had any reason to write in my diary as much as I have done so in the past as well as be online every day.  I have been enjoying reading and TV time once again.  I rarely watch regular TV anymore as I no longer have the cable box, but I do have the cable app on my ROKU system along with Hulu, Pandora, 3ABN, and a couple of free movie apps.  I have been binge watching CSI: Criminal Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, Castle Rock, and other TV shows lately.  Now that Dr. Phil has resumed a new season of his show, I am doing my best at watching the daily program at 4 PM CST if my cable app does not have any issues, but yesterday and today, my cable app is having issues.
