Today here in Ohio it is FREEZING ! the air chills to the bone. I have been battling diarrhea off on and for about 3 days. Must have picked up some kind of intestinal bug somewhere. I actually had to cancel mom's appointment with the orthopedic surgeon who fixed her broken tibia because I didn't want to have an accident in a public place. This is the longest I've had a problem like this. I even got the flu shot so whatever I picked up maybe it would have been even worse if I hadn't got it. Anyway, they re-scheduled her appt for Monday so I'm hoping to be better by then. I've been drinking Pedialite for electrolyte replacement and being careful of what I eat. Still have a grippy stomach but no episodes. Trying to stay warm here and taking the down time for purging and throwing away things I don't need. Amazing what you accumulate. I have a booth at a local indoor flea market that I've been taking mom's stuff and my stuff I don't want anymore and I've been doing pretty good with that. It's nice to get a little bit of money for things you no longer want or need. Then we are just about ready to have the estate sale for my mom's stuff and then we are putting the house up for sale. We're getting there but it's a slow process. Mom had some money from accumulating 50.00 a month at the nursing home and I actually only had to pay 48.00 and they paid her taxes out of that money so that helped me out a lot. I"m still paying the utilities and house insurance on her property since she has no money in the bank anymore. Ugh !! I've been told I can take the money out of the sale of the house to re-couperate the money I've spent. Maybe... don't know for sure about that.
Hope we have a safe race in Vegas this weekend. GO CHASE !!!
