Last weekend a couple of friends and I went to see a live performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show by a local theater company. I couldn’t take any pictures during the performance, but it was fabulous! I really needed a few hours of nothing but fun to remind me that this pain hasn’t ended my life, just altered it. And, miracle of miracles, I managed to take one of those pictures teenager take all the time. You know, where they just hold the camera out and take a picture of themselves and their friends? I’ve never been able to do that before and actually get a reasonable portion of everyone’s heads in the shot. Don’t we look great? That’s me on the right, and I swear I hadn’t been drinking – just taking my regular prescribed medications!
I’m really frustrated with some of the changes on my iPhone since I upgraded to ios5. Some apps don’t work at all (my Tarot card app, which I really kinda liked), some have needed to be deleted and reinstalled (which messes up everything’s location on my screens and makes me grumpy), and some apps just won’t work at all. I’ve tried and tried, and I can’t get my beloved TweetDeck to work right. I’ve tried HootSuite (hate it) and Tweetcaster (better, but still not exactly what I want). What’s everyone else using?
We had my mom’s Yorkie, Winnie, here last week while Mom and Greg were in Vegas for the PBR (Professional Bull Riders) finals. I’ve kinda missed the little furball this week. She reminds me that it’s all about how you see yourself. She has no idea that she’s 1/10th the size of the other two dogs in this house. She sleeps wherever she wants, eats whomever’s food she prefers, and jumps up and bites the nose of any dog who dares challenge her. And when she wants to play they will play with her, even if she has to shove her entire head into one of their mouths to get their attention. I want to live my life with a Winnie attitude!
I’ve been praying a novena to Saint Jude, patron saint of lost causes, and yesterday things finally (I think, maybe) started turning around. I’ve got a long way to go, but as long as I have reason to hope I’ll keep pushing through.
I actually made it through TWO important conversations yesterday about my current medical condition without crying. That may not sound like a big deal, but trust me, I’ve had the waterworks going pretty much constantly for several weeks.
My son needs to hide his Halloween candy better. Right next to my computer is not a good hiding place . . . not if he wants any of these little Snickers bars.
I”m doing NaNoWriMo, which means I’m trying to write at least 50,000 words of a novel during the month of November. I’m way behind already because of doctor’s visits, long disability phone calls, and involuntary naps when my meds kick in, but I’m still plodding along 🙂
