What A Day It WAS

Wednesday, Mar 12

Ah, yesterday. One of those days.

I got off to a slow start anyway–I’m in a mulling phase–and I had just opened the window to write this blog when I heard my friend and long time employee, Debbie, call out from a room at the other end of a long hall. “Linda! I need help.” Well, she’s got back problems and is under strict orders not to lift or anythng. I thought she wanted me to get something down off a shelf or help her move a box. Well, when I stepped into that room, there she was, lying on the floor–bleeding! She’d fallen off a four-foot step ladder.

Definitely a trip to the emergency room. Trouble was, she was too sick and dizzy to ride in my truck. So I ended up calling 911 and off she went to the hospital for a few stitches and a lot of tests. Thank God, she’s all right, but pretty bruised and sore, of course. Larry, Mary Ann’s husband and the main wrangler on this spread, went to fetch her home when she was released. Mary Ann, usually referred to as the trail boss, has been visiting grandson Lucas in Canada this week. Back tonight, thank Heaven, because this herd is scattered in all directions and needs rounding up. 🙂

If that wasn’t enough, I was looking for a particular product I’d seen on a polymer clay video, and ran a Google search. I innocently tapped into one of the links, and this G-awful porn video came up. To shorten an already long story, I had a heck of a time getting rid of that thing, and I really thought my computer was going to crash. Fortunately, I stumbled upon the restore feature in the Control Panel and was able to travel back in time, at least in the cyber world, and get rid of the uglies.

Today has a much calmer energy, praise the Lord. Bernice is going to the vet for an eye problem, but ointment will probably be the perscription.

I continue to do well with Weight Watchers. I have always loved that program because it really doesn’t feel like a diet–it’s truly a lifestyle and one I can live with. I’m also listening to a set of hypnosis CDs I read about at Dottie’s Weight Loss Zone–dot com. (I’m not affiliated with either Dottie or the CD people, but hers is positively the best site I’ve seen for finding restaurant points, good recipes, and all around encouragement.) The CDs (“Enjoying Weight Loss”) make a big difference.

Time to go check on Debbie again. She was breathing the last time I looked in. 🙂 Always a good sign. If we’re breathing, we’re good to go.
