Well, I am nearly 'home alone.' The grands left this evening around 7:00 and Louis Dean arrived from Quadville within 5 minutes after they pulled out of the driveway.
Levi had a good time here and thanked me for all the fun - but he was ready to go home!!
We lingered in the house visiting for a few minutes and, since the car was locked, he decided to sit on TOP of it! Gotta love that little guy and I DO!
We started the day off with crafts.
Last night we prepped the wood so they were all ready to stencil.
I did one, too!
Both kids enjoyed my collection of shells and wanted to embellish their signs as well.
I love Levi's creativity and the fact he didn't use a stencil at all.
Faith is doing her bedroom with a beach theme so this works right in with that!
My toe was extremely painful and I rested a lot more today than I did yesterday.
I am getting what feels like electric pulses in my toe just out of the blue. At Goodwill yesterday I had to hold on to a dress rack until they eased up. This afternoon we were playing NUTS and poor Faith became concerned when it looked like I was having a seizure. I was trying to be still and let it pass without drawing attention to it. Instead it scared Faith because I seemed to be staring into space. I didn't realize I was twitching!!
We returned the wrong battery to Walgreen's this afternoon and bought the right size.
The camera WORKS!!! We also returned the watch to Goodwill and got this one Levi is now wearing and it works, too!
I let Levi use my camera to save the film in his.
He took this photo of me.
I am relieved that after spending a solid half hour trying to leave a message for my physician's assistant -following all those maddening prompts that tell you to push THIS number for THIS and THAT number for THAT - which I did and then after finally pushing the number for Dr. Crawford's assistant - would you believe it sent me BACK to the very FIRST prompt and I had to do it all over again and then I finally pushed the number for 'make an appointment' which took me to a real voice which then sent me to another line and I got a voice recording asking me to leave a message. You better believe I DID leave one. I was polite but firm. I also said that recent calls were never returned and I fully expected a call back this afternoon. I also requested a prescription for Celebrex which I have found actually WORKS for me!
Guess what? I got a call back AND a prescription called in.
My toe was less swollen all day until this evening when it flared up again.
Apparently the cadaver bone and my bone and the synthetic extender are not all playing well together. I can feel the nerves as they connect and tingle. It will be so nice to just have a normal toe - although I guess that's not going to happen ever again - but at least it will LOOK normal and no extra sensations going on!
I have left Louis Dean in the den with his news programs and fixed myself a simple supper of pasta salad and crackers. I will now take my wine outside and water the plants and then I may very well go to bed and read.
Tomorrow is another day!
