I'm lazy and cheap too. The organic lemon and lime juice cost more than the regular stuff from the grocery store, but the ingredients are: lemon juice or lime juice, nothing else and it's cheaper than fresh organic lemons or limes. The I get is from Italy. It's probably cheaper than regular lemons & limes and no waste.

The meds can't possibly taste as good as a Margarita. And all this talk about Margaritas, I just might make myself one.

I will probably skip the salt on the rim. My BP is low normal. If I eat a lot of salt, it goes way up (last time: 180/110)

But, seeing as how I NEED the meds and can't drink when I take them (or at least shouldn't)...I'll have a lemon San Pelligrino...thanks!

After spending most of the night up with Violet (earlier post), I have spent most of the afternoon and early evening in bed and am going back now, hopefully for the night. My sciatica is acting up on both sides and I can't seem to get any relief. I am on the maximum painkillers of all types for my chronic pain and don't want to go to the hospital for a shot of morphine, so ice packs and sleep are my friends.

TB said if Violet is having problems in the night it is his turn to sit with her. At least the vet is open tomorrow.

We have just got back from a lovely walk, it is chilly outside but you get warm soon enough having a brisk walk

I don't drink but if I did.... I am on so many meds I wouldn't even ride by a liquor store. I know alcohol is bad for your sugar levels. But I have no idea what else it affects and I don't even want to find out. It is too scary. There is a reason for that label on your medication that says, "Do not drink alcohol."

Sorry you are hurting. Hope today is better.

I'm watching a gentle rain. I love the sound the raindrops make on the deck. .

Thanks, Chopper. And I agree with you about the beauty in the sound of rain - of course where I live we are pretty used to it

I had a bit better sleep and apparently so did Violet. We are both still favouring our back areas with pain. TB did most of my shopping yesterday and my neighbour is actually coming over to do my laundry for me and will make me dinner as TB goes back to work this afternoon after his week off. I find the best position is to lay on my opposite side propped with pillows, but I need to get up and walk every once in awhile. Sitting is almost impossible for more than 5 minutes. I have some physio exercises I can do to relax the nerve and am trying them a few times a day.

I am upset that this has happened, but am also being proactive and trying to not let it get the best of me.

Ahhh, thank you for this post.
Even though you are talking about rain, it's like a ray of sunshine when this thread turns depressing with post after post about illness and sickness.
