And now I have the whole week off. This is not at all a bad thing.

My spiffy new glucose meter and blood pressure cuff arrived. I got my eyes checked and I made the appointments I needed for a sleep study so I can get a new CPAP. The CPAP I have is ancient.

Getting older sucks!

I put on my hard knee braces under my warm clothes (the ones with a metal supports) and dug my car out.

One of my neighbors is a dick but several others are very nice. The dick started to dig his car out first and instead of pushing the snow to the other side of the road like everyone else he was throwing it behind and on top of my car. I came out and he started to dig out the front of his car and he was throwing the snow into the walkway that had been snow blown, the part right in front of my ramp.

Another neighbor saw me struggling and came over to help. His name is Dave and he's a firefighter. Then another guy came over to help (I didn't catch his name) and we got my spot, the dick's spot, and one other spot dug out. Then we went and started helping a girl down the way. You couldn't see her car for the drift over it. We got her out and checked on two of the families that have someone who is disabled. We got them dug out but their cars weren't so badly snowed in. Then we started to dig out the second car of the guy who's name I didn't catch. I helped get the back end uncovered but I had to call it quits. I was hurting. I just couldn't stuff the pain into the back of my head and ignore it anymore. The dick neighbor didn't help get anyone else after the area where our cars were was done.

I've had a hot shower, some pain meds, have my tens unit on my back and a large drink. I'll be forcing myself to get out of bed several times over the course of the evening to stretch. If I'm in to much pain tomorrow I'll get a z-pack of steroids from my Rheumy.

Lastly, my nose and cheeks are sun/wind burned.

No it was the girlfriend (wife?) of the guy who's name I didn't catch.

Home. Not dead. The only drama was my cousin announcing that he and his wife were having a baby! That is the kind of drama I'll happily live with. I love my family but I really need to stay in a hotel when I visit. I like real beds and not having to face anyone before coffee and a hot shower first thing in the morning. If anyone needs me I'll be in the pillow fort, trying to work out the knots caused by an air mattress on the floor. The kitties will join me once they have forgiven me for leaving them.

I am very blessed to be able to take fluff and make stuff!

It's a magical skill that figures prominent in legends, and can be argued to be one of the oldest technologies of the human race.. And is one that women's hands have done for survival and socialization for almost ever.

Yes, you are blessed.. :) (luckily, so am I.. :D)

I love my iPhone and the interwebs. I'm waiting at the vets office for Mac.

I over heard a conversation about a cat that was brought in with possible poisoning. I was able to quickly find pictures of toxic plants with red berries to help identify what the cat may have ingested. The plant was yew. I'm glad I could help in some small way.

Mac needed an enema to fix what's wrong.

Update: He needed 3 of them. We're home now.

I have two cats that don't like being held. If I tried this, it would not go over well. ;)

+Mathilde Poussin when your ready to learn how to do Fair Isle knitting you need to make these socks!
I am definitely riding on the coattails of the Pearl Clutcher cardigan with this. That cardigan is so beautiful, so inspired, that I really wanted to make one. But I thought about it realistically: it’s a lot of work to make something that I could never wear out of the house. So I thought about it, and I realized: I can’t wear a cardigan covered in dicks, but I could certainly get away with them on socks.
