One more step

Filed under: Family, Health, Love — Scottie @ 16:42

Yesterday Ron took a call from the hospital saying they needed me to come in today and get more blood tests, a urine test, and chest X-Rays for my surgery.  Pre-Opt testing.   So Ron came home from working his fourth 12 hour shift in a row, got four hours sleep, and got ready to take me to the hospital.   This time we took the manual wheelchair as my shoulders are really torn and not healed from trying to use the walker the last two times.  I hate to complain about my shoulders though because when I look into the worn tired eyes of my 62 year old lover and realize how hard he is working, how he is taking care of me rather than get much needed sleep, how he has taken on all the things of daily home life on his shoulders.   I remember how he pushed me around the hospital so I wouldn’t hurt my shoulders pushing myself, I did not even ask him too.  When we got home he took a few minutes for himself.   I was happy he did.  I got him a bag of his favorite cheddar white popcorn and he sat and watched TV.  Now he has gotten up and is doing laundry.   And life goes on.  One more step.   Hugs

A Wonderful dazzling shining young lady. Chelsea Manning is a hero.

I have never made a secret that I admire Chelsea Manning.   What she did took a heck of a lot of courage I doubt many would have had.   She showed the country what illegal acts our country  was doing.  We wouldn’t have known about the shooting of journalist and first medical responders.  She paid a huge horrible price for outing the crimes of the USA government.   Think of it, the ones who committed murder in Iraq never suffered a single thing.  Other illegal acts she exposed and again no one but her paid for it.   The torture she suffered at the hands of her own government is unthinkable.   Yes it was torture.  Legally we can’t do to prisoners what was done to her.  She twice tried to take her life, and I don’t blame her.  I am glad she is safe now, but facing what she faced, I can understand.   Think of the sexual abuse trauma she lives with.   I can’t recount all the things here such as her forced nudity because thinking of it is triggering me.   I think Chelsea should have been pardoned.   I hope in the future someone will do it.  I hope the country will hold her gratefully in their hearts.   For her courage and dedication I thank her, and wish I had a chance to know her.   Best wishes for you Chelsea.   May the rest of your days be filled with joy and happiness.   Hugs

Why I have not been on blogs, and not answered emails. Medical stuff.

This got long.  34 minutes of my voice.   So place consider this to be tortured and several humanitarian groups have formed to help those who have listened to the whole thing.  🙂  I am not whining about anything in the video, just explaining.    IF you force yourself to occasionally glance at the screen you see my normal smile and happy demeanor.   The reason it got long was the confusion I get into with my pain medications and the changing blood sugar.  So enjoy and try to not stuff too much into your ears to block the sound.   Hugs

Baking Breakfast Together

Filed under: Food, Love, My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 13:25

Hello Everyone.  Thanks for coming by, pull up a chunk of wi-fi and have a stretch out.   Some of you may know I have good days, and I have not good days.  Well that is not special, we all have that.  What makes mine a bit different is my health issues including pain problems can make a not so good day both happen a lot more often and makes them be quite a bitch.  However the great thing for me is I have it very good comparatively and with out being a blind pollyanna  I would say I am a lucky person.   I am rather happy.  I am not going to write a post on all the bitchy health stuff I am dealing with.   Instead I am going to tell you the great thing we did this morning.

Ron and I love to do stuff together.  One of the things we love to do is cook together.  I admit I use to do more of my share of it than I do now, but I still am part of the two man team.   Yesterday I came up with the idea of creating a breakfast bake this morning.  I had made one 11 years ago and Ron loved it.  So I gave Ron a list of things we needed and off he went to the store.  The last time I had to cook everything in advance, prepare it , and then bake the finished mixture.   

Ah how things have improved.   Ron was able to get a couple bags of precooked crumbled sausage and bacon.   The ham also was cut up, even though Ron did cut it smaller.   We got a huge bowl out and I went to town creating my own recipe.   First I added the crumbled meats with the chopped ham.   Then I added three different types of shredded cheeses.  Then Ron cut up a velveeta spicy cheese and added that.  Then I added a bunch of hash browns, which are simply shredded potatoes.  Now if you like peppers and onions you can add them.  Once we had all the stuff in the bowl, I mixed it up by hand.   

Ron had 6 really nice mini loaf cooking pans.   I filled them with the mixture up to about an inch from the top of the pan.   At the same time Ron took 9 eggs and put them in a bowl and using his new stick blender I got him, he whipped them up with some water.  This he poured over the mixture in the baking pans up to the top level of the mixture.   This gives the eggs room to rise as they soak into every part of the mixture.   Ron gave the pans a shake as he filled them as the eggs settle  in the nooks and crannies.  

We preheated the convection countertop oven to 425.   We set the timer at 30 minutes.  We checked them at 20 minutes to make sure.   Ron ate a slice or two and pronounced them great.   I ate mine with hot sauce.  I did not add salt with the mixture as I prefer people to add the salt at the time of eating as people have such different tastes.   I agree it was great.   The most wonderful thing is Ron and I did it together.  It was a great joy to be creating side by side as we made this with no measurements or complete recipe.   Poor Ron had to do all the clean up as just the small part I did wore me out, but he did not mind at all.  

Here are some pictures.  Sorry I did not think to take the pictures until after it had been baked and we started to eat.      Be well.  May your days not be bitchy.   Hugs

A story we all should hear.   We had a similar situation with our wonderful Purr only he was only about 14.  He also took time to come around and when he did he was so loving, always wanting to be on your lap or lay with you.  He purred like a diesel truck.  Hugs

Happy Valentines day

Filed under: Love, My Life and Rants, Thanks, Things I like — Scottie @ 10:43

My wonderful loving husband worked last night.   This morning he stopped to get a few things for me.  I have to say he is so grand.  He treats me so well.   I am so happy.  I find I am happy and content in ways that grow deeper every day.  Ron and I are closer every day.  It stuns me that after 26 + years we are still so deeply in love.     Best wishes to all. Hugs
