OK, I "is" home and added Marcy @MarcyW882921 to OUR LIST. Gosh dear friend I hope it works. I get those when I ALLOW folks to stress me out. Lol, being retired has helped but now need to move.

 

I would luv to hear how it works out IF you feel like sharing. Yikes, as one who DREADS needles, I do not know IF I could.  😱😱😱

 

Lol, I will have to ALERT the Lab Folks about my fear of needles and hope they understand. My old doctor babied me and CVS does. GRATEFUL for this!!!  👍👍👍

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

Luv you,

📸  Attachment  📸  Cadee @Cadee2719 , our boy has NO idea I will be leaving for Kroger about 10am TODAY = I have been up since 6am with him. Lol, that part is fine. But as usual it is like HE KNOWS when I NEED to get ready to leave = he has been IN AND OUT all morning, changed his food TWICE (moving forward we sticking to Friskies from Walmart) and of course DEMANDING I sit down and pet him. Hmmm, sounds like he needs to issue me a PAYCHECK/lol  🤣😂

 

Latest thing, JUMPING into my bed to be up all close and personal. Nope as he will NOT be wearing a FLEA COLLAR and forget about the OTHER OPTIONS - put stuff on him (probably claw me to death), capture him and take to a vet for shots (lol, a trap - h.ll NO, he is feral and has SURVIVED outside, so you know he one WISE kittie).

 

Anyway, I can now PREDICT when he is about to JOIN me and put my FREE hand on his back to PREVENT him jumping. Lol, of course I get the EVIL EYE AND TAIL SWISHING.

 

I did check Walmart for some PET SAFE FLEA OPTIONS but found none. Doing the HOME VERSION I found online.

 

Dawn dish detergent and water in a shallow dish, UNDER a night light that stays on when it gets DARK.

 

Of course I have the area BEHIND HIS FOOD/WATER AREA blocked when he is visiting me. No need to have him all up in the mixture. Already all up in my Utility Room checking out the leak there. Hmmm, maybe he can FIX it for me.

 

Anyway, it is about 8am here in Cave Spring, Virginia.

 

Hoping the b from next door MOVES her car so I can get into MINE to head to Kroger. She is a real r.dneck, runs a daycare from h.ll and WE DONOT LIKE each other. Office told me to call COPS on her as she luvs to BLOCK my access to SIDEWALK. Lol, I will IF needed THIS MORNING IF she is OUTSIDE when I am later.

 

The age of my daughter and FORGETS I pay rent too.

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🐈

Eyes are doing good. Pressure is managed with eye drops. And although the last couple of months my adrenaline levels caused higher blood glucose levels and higher blood pressures, no damage to my retinas has been done. So I just need to relax and keep up with my walking and diet.

Congrats on the lucky scratch off card. 
I’m getting ready to go so will check back in when I can read my screen.

MS. IDAHO @Cadee2719 , some questions for you. As usual, NO PRESSURE to answer!!!  🙃

 

[1] I am guessing your California legal papers (will and so on) have to be redone with your move to Idaho? I have allowed this issue to stress me out as I would have to redo my Virginia ones IF I move back to Florida.  😭😭😭  Ideally want to REMAIN in Virginia for as long as I can drive.  👍👍👍

 

[2]  🐕🐈  Any furbabies in your NEW neighborhood in Idaho - owned and/or feral? Lol, I am RENAMING our boy to Mr. And I have FINALLY learn't CAT LANGUAGE and I guess can NOW be called that Crazy Old Cat Woman/lol  🤣😂   TODAY, as usual he was FUSSING with me as he wanted me to SIT DOWN and pet him.  🙄🙄🙄  Keep in mind he basically IGNORED ME ALL OF YESTERDAY. My begging for some Furbaby Attention went unheard. At least he said SEE YOU LATER when he left out about 3:30pm TODAY. Usually he just walks out my door = NO thank you, zero. Got to luv him.

 

Okay my friend, that is it for now and NO RUSH on a response.

 

HOPE you and your son are well  🤗🤗🤗

Good afternoon. Got up early today then spent the morning working my daily puzzles. Took my walk and then checked my mail. HMPH! Nothing from AARP. Checked junk mail and there they were. All my lovely messages got sent to junk! So I sat and fixed them all. I did not tell my mail client to send AARP mail to spam so I have no idea how that happened. 

Anyway here I am checking to make sure my new friends are all ok. 
l will be busy tomorrow getting myself out the door for my eye appt. I’ll be using Uber because I always get dilated for a retina check. That will make it hard for me to read my mail until sometime in the afternoon, so do not panic if  I’m a bit late tomorrow. I will see you all tomorrow. Until then LUV TO ALl.

(1 comment) Dr. Diane @DianeB887812 aka Dr. Walker, hope you ENJOYED your walk THIS MORNING. Do you change routes? When I walk, I do to eliminate the boredom

 

It is nearly 7pm for us BOTH (you in Florida, me in Virginia) and AFTER a much needed ALL DAY NAP  🙄🙄🙄,  I am headed to get my soak ready.  👍👍👍

 

Was TOO TIRED before nap to do the soak = falling asleep.

 

The NAP was possible as UPSTAIRS neighbors from h.ll have been GONE since Friday.  💃💃💃

 

Need to check mailbox and take trash to dumpster way in the back TONIGHT. Hate this chore, but....

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

I also took a nap today. 

My 30 min morning walk is a lovely tree lined sidewalk. If I want a longer walk, I can continue and circle the extended block. That takes 90 min. 

And if I want to take a hike, I can walk to the near by park and take a forest trail. That can take 2-3 hours. 

Every one is used to seeing me walking and waves and says hi. Even the maintenance crew as they zip by in their golf carts.
