PT is getting to be too much for me

My little Christmas tree it has the little snoopy mini ornaments my sister gave me, and this year my boyfriend bought me two little elephant decorations…they are so cute. He also got me a larger elephant figurine carved from stone. (that will probably make an appearance in a future post)

I got the boxes out of storage today to put all the Holiday decorations away after I got home from PT. They worked me harder today, I was actually starting to sweat. I am wiped out now. I did not get all the decorations down. I also had an easy dinner of a can of lower sodium soup.

Back This Thing Up

A pic of my tree 2018 in my new apartment. My favorite part of the tree this year is the light patterns on the wall and ceiling and reflection in the window. I need to figure out how to get electricity on the patio.

I realised after yesterday’s hasty post, that I left out a bunch of events that have happened in recent months. I have a much nicer apartment, which I consider one of the best things to happen to me in 2018. It is still for disabled and seniors only, but this one is much quieter and cleaner than the last one. I have a better layout, no closed in superhot kitchen. I am on the first floor. I have a small patio that I call a catio, though my cat only ventured out there once since I moved in. It has been cold right after I moved here, I think she does not like the cold concrete out on the catio. I have a view of the woods and a bit of the main road. I have seen deer, birds, bunnies and I was told there were squirrels too. I also have seen a wandering cat, I am not sure whose it is, but it looks like a little bobcat. I hope it is not feral. I also hope I never see it dead because it likes to walk in the road.

I have a new primary care doctor, although it is frustrating my old doctor has not faxed over my records.  My blood pressure has been both high and low.  I am back at PT. My PT is only a few blocks away. There is a walking trail nearby, it comes right up to my apartment parking lot. I only walked on the trail once, mostly because it has been rainy, snowy, or otherwise gloomy most days. I walked one day indoors with my older son and grandkids at the mall. The mall will be my go-to option to walk when the weather is too bad to walk outside. I drive my 19-year-old son to work once a week. He lives with my oldest son, so I get to see two of my grandkids more often. I still go to Syracuse most weekends to see my boyfriend. He has actually been here a few times. I still have a lot more to explore in this area.

Just a short while after my grandson’s third birthday, he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I am trying to learn as much as I can about that. I am sure that sums up the last few months. I also planned to squeeze in a few trips to see family. Providence to see my daughter and family including my Ashley who they are taking care of. Dogs her weight are not allowed here. Also up to the Adirondacks to visit my mom and sister. Both of those road trips will be coming soon.
