If I could learn to relax like my dogs, I’m sure life would be so much simpler. Lol Work is still continuing at the Happy Place property. The old fridge that was in the trailer has been removed, and the small apartment style fridge has been set up in that hole. I found a free full sized fridge for us to have there; it isn’t the prettiest thing to look at but the inside is clean, and it works. The septic line had to be dug up and replaced as one of the prior owners had buried the flexible hose line. The flexible hoses should never be buried, this one had been and it was breaking down due to that, and no protection for it from the gravel or people walking in that area. I managed to offset some of the cost by digging up that line and disposing of it. Now, we have a proper septic line, and hopefully not many more things like this will crop up for us. I also found some wonderful plates, bowls, serving platters and two large bowls one sale. The most expensive piece was $12 as it was all clearance items and then 50% off the last marked price.
Trying to get any writing done has been difficult not just due to the activities listed above but the cluster migraines that I’ve been having. For those of my readers that don’t know what having a migraine is like, I truly hope that you never learn it. I’ve tried so many different medications it is disturbing, and worse yet is the fact that they all only work so many times for me before I have to switch it up again. Recently my dizzy spells have been getting worse. I’ve always had low blood pressure, and the last few times I’ve been at the doctor’s office he’s asked inquired if anything has changed. Normally a person’s blood pressure is at least slightly elevated when they go to see the doctor. We all know that stress will cause it to rise at least a bit. I’m lucky if mine is 100/56 when I’ve gone to the doctor the last few times.
With only one set of highland games left for us to work this summer, I am hoping that things will level out and I can settle back to a routine for writing again. I just need to get the migraines back under control once again. That and figuring out a way to not be depressed when my husband gets sent out of town for weeks at a time related to work would also be helpful.
I hope that everyone has been well and that the following week finds you all safe and happy.
