Just resting between doing chores and making beef stew with biscuits.

And I am trying to get a muscle in my neck to relax. I am on a muscle relaxer and it makes me so sleepy. So it is going to take me a while to get done all that want to.

I had that problem in my neck and shoulder when I was working. I had to call in sick for a whole month. I was just about out of my mind with pain. I went to the doctors and he gave me muscle relaxers, they were so strong I could hardly talk. I cried almost the whole month, I could not lay down, I had to sit up and try to get some rest. One day I was sitting on the sofa and I could feel something go back into place in my shoulder and the pain was gone. I was afraid to move but it really was gone.
So you have my sympathy Addie, I know a little bit of what you are going through.

Still discovering my new iPhone. It has Siri, you ask it questions about just about anything, and it will take dictation, email and text for you, make calls, schedule your appointments, give you restaurant recs and tell you about your weather.

Siri scares me...

Well, then, you know what ducks do in water... That pic is titled "Tea for Two." I was considering a dragon...

Thank you. I have had this for two months. And again, my stubborn streak was working full time. I don't need to see any doctor. I can take care of this myself. I didn't even mention it when I was in the hospital last week. By this past Thursday, I was crying with the pain. The muscle relaxer is doing its job. But it is a slow process. I am so much better today. As long as I do what I am supposed to do. One of the problems was that I was holding my head down when at the computer. I raised the screen about five inches and what a difference. Am also working on my resolution of "Getting rid of that dang subborn streak!" Amazing! Good things happen when I stop being so dang stubborn.

stayed in bed til one p.m. all i have done is make a meal, talked on the phone for two hours. the daughter, of my sad friend in the home, called me. it is almost three years since her mom's brain injury after routine surgery. i have know this gal since she was six years old. mostly she talks about herself and how she hates being the only person for her mom. she is not my favorite person but only way i get updates on her mom.

just been on computer since. it is cold and going to rain, so just hunkering down with heater on. i think we all need a do nothing day every so often.
