I believe 2018 will go down as the "on again, off again Spring". Seems like it did this all across the country. It's like I want to scream,

 "shit off get off the pot, Ms. Spring."

So, yeah it gets to me after awhile. I have 2 raised garden beds I want to put together. Our yards have turned into a green JUNGLE. One day it's 80 and the next day, it's snowing in the mountains, which drops our temps here in the valley as well.

Not to mention, my bones have been aching. My knees, so much that I went in for a shot; that didn't even touch the pain, so I had X-rays on both knees. It came back that I have arthritis in both and the left one is worse. I am BUMMED! I am too damn young, for arthritis in my knees. (64)

I am a walker/hiker. This literally cramps my style. I'm gaining weight because I am not walking. Stairs are killer as well as curbs. Sometimes, when I sleep at night, they throb in pain. I don't take anything for the pain. I am using a topical MJ product that works very well but it's not going to actually FIX anything. So I need to see an Orthopedist.

It's like every year, I find something NEW that is wrong with me. 2 years ago it was my Gallbladder. Last year, Diverticulitis and so far this year, my knees. At the rate I am going, I'll be dead in 10 years!


  1. Ooh, sorry about the knees, I have a little of the A in my hip, but walking and moving actually helps it for me. Bingo on the weather, this winter not so awful for us, but waaaay too long.

  2. I've been so lazy this spring. In the past I had an excuse to not be busy. I feel for you about arthritis. I was so disappointed to know it would hurt and you would not be moving the joint. I now know when it is going to rain. Bummer.

  3. I have so much pain in my knees day in and day out, so I feel for you

  4. So sorry to hear you have arthritis, Debby. That must be hard when the weather is cold. My mom had arthritis as well. If I hear of anything that helps, I'll be sure to let you know.



Comments are good - I admit, sometimes I don't respond back, in time for a dialog. I bad! I will TRY and do better. Thanks for understanding.
