Pain Free!

There is something marvelous about no pain.
My back/shoulder/elbow have been without pain for three weeks.
Granted I am feeling a twinge in my elbow but I know what the cause of it is and how to deal with it.
Yesterday as I was speeding around work I realized just how great I felt.
NO pain.
WICKED good mood.
LAUGHTER resounding.
SMILES on everyone’s face.
My mask yesterday was my blue one with the tongue sticking out.
It is identical to my pink just the color is different.
And as usual I was told to put my tongue back in several times.
And as usual everyone who looked at or talked to me smiled.
Save for a few but they are heartless drones who do not know how to have fun.
Gotta feel sorry for those people.
Yesterday hot flashes returned with a vengeance.
Although in part that may have been the fluffy socks that I had mistakenly worn to work.
Thought it was chillier than it was.
Dumb Jay.
Hot feet mean hotter hotness.
A couple of times I was wiping sweat from my brow.
I have gotten so good at spotting that tell tale rush of initial heat so I can get my sweater off.
When I haven’t people know.
I become increasingly redder and redder.
Then like in those old commercials where you would see temp rising higher and higher well when the red subsides I get whiter and whiter.
Bet you never thought that that was possible.
I mean how does a white girl get whiter?
How is that possible?
This is something that I have spent a long time trying to figure out.
From Spring til Fall I am in the sun and get increasingly darker and darker.
More so than anyone else in our family.
Yet while everyone remains human during the winter months I convert to an albino vampire.
I am not intending to offend either the albino or vampire communities but lordy I am worse than death warmed over.
Snow banks have more color than I do.
Wear white?
Only if I want to look like a ghost.
Pain free.
Not going to be doing any cartwheels because falling on my face would probably cause myself some hurt.
Makes a girl giddy with excitement to realize that once more there is full mobility and no pain.
No pain.
NO PAIN!
It is Thursday everyone.
Nigh on the weekend soon.
Have a terrific day all!

There is a Benefit…..

I live in the province of Manitoba.
On the great North American landmass.
The part known as Canada.
Manitoba is not a wealthy province like oil rich Alberta.
We do not have the land mass or population of Ontario and Quebec.
What we do have is a hearty constitution and an ability to roll with the punches.
We have cold weather.
There have been days when we are colder than Mars.
Those are the days when we mutter and curse and try to figure out why we live here.
In the summer our weather is hot and humid or dry.
Depends on rain amounts.
We also have huge mosquitos.
And a lot of them.
The joke about Manitoba is we have two seasons: Winter and Mosquito/Construction Season.
We do have spring and fall but they are temperate more in line with the rest of the world.
For the last three weeks everyone has been caught beneath this polar vortex.
There are vast swaths of dark purple and blue running through the weather maps.
Now I understand the blue but when did dark purple become associated with cold weather.
Purple is a wonderful color and I take exception to it being used as an indication of frigidness.
Can you tell what my favorite color is.
Our overnight lows have been in the -40’s with real feel.
Our daytime highs have been mid -30’s with real feel.
Cars freeze.
You never feel warm.
Everyone is complaining.
Our temperature is finally rising back to normal levels.
I mean it is only -19 right now as I write this.
In shorts and a tank top.
Why?
Because my hot flashes have returned.
That is right the one benefit to it being absolutely freezing?
I did not have one single hot flash during that time.
There were a few moments of heat but not where my whole body is on fire and sweat is beading on my forehead.
As I am standing there doing nothing.
Yesterday three times!!!!
Three bloody times.
Two I was able to feel coming on so whipped off my sweater and did not hit critical melting point.
Third time I was in a till with a customer.
I was sweating and so hot by the time I finished her order.
Even taking my sweater off did not help this time around.
This morning I was once more feeling the heat.
Ended up turning the heat to coolish in the car after dropping T off at school.
And having to run and buy him lunch because he had to make his own.
After arguing with me and I told him that he had to eat I dropped off his lunch with a breezy:
Me: I am T. Doerksen’s mom. He decided that he was not going to make himself lunch today so I am riding to the rescue.
Secretary: Oh you are a nice mom.
Me: That’s what I told him.
 
I am not about to let him starve to death.
No matter what he says.
I have the rest of my afternoon to relax.
T does not get let out of school until 3:30.
I will warm the car then.
I do not deal well with lots of cars and picking up T and all these other kids everywhere.
And parents.
T even knows.wp-161367591851092578311562334262.png
Going to go and kick back.
Have a quick nap before going to pick up The Beast.
And turn the heat back up again.
Apparently 13 is a little too chill even for me.
