I got the mowing done, foot was not impressed but the job got done and the place looks better. I will have to water later but for now I am staying out of the heat outside.
I am doing a lot of thinking about what I will be able to do, physically in the future, have some big decisions to be making and need to look at a lot of different issues and what I really need and want. Lots of different angles to consider.
Today the mail had the green card, so someone with Standard Insurance signed for the forms 7/14 and no one can claim (again) that the rest of my disability pay from the plant is being held until they get more medical information from my doctor. I would like to see the rest of my disability show up in my checking account by Friday the 23rd but know they will drag it out as long as they can.
I can't find the doll pj pattern I wanted to work with but do have a nice summer dress pattern and plenty of fabric that would work with it, plus fabrics that would make great summer shirts. I need to get out some fabrics that will work for more cargo pants also, have some that looks like camo somewhat and could do a couple pair out of that. If I don't sell some outfits soon I will be running out of room for them.
Mike says he's loading 3 cars to haul from Salt Lake to Peoria, and will leave Monday. I don't know how long the trip will take, or how well the truck and trailer will make the haul but I decided a couple months ago that Mike's trucking business is His business and I am not going to worry, advise or invest in it.
I have a lot to work on in my own life, my finances are not in good shape, my house is a mess, my garden is overgrown, I am still healing up from this car accident and from this most recent surgery and still have a lot of pain and problems wearing shoes any length of time.
Right now there are at least 2 places up for sale that would work for me, once I have my settlement, the 1 with the huge house and no screening from the highway, and the 1 that is just land and maybe more than I really want to manage. Both have good points and bad ones. And neither might be still for sale when I am finally have my settlement from this accident.
The foot really hurts, I had thought that by now I would have far less pain. I do know the surgery has helped but I am just not healing as fast from this last surgery as I thought I would. The surgery scar looks good though and I am putting a lot of cocoa butter cream or emu oil on it several times a day. I am just so tired of hurting like this all the time. I am not getting a lot done while I spend so much time down on the futon or on my bed. Brusing, the bone where the shaving/chipping/filing took place, the nerves that got moved around, streached, frayed. I think it's those nerves that 'twing' and have me to the point of screaming that is the worse. I know all the pain is reduced from jsut after the surgery and just after the staples were removed.
Well, nothing good to watch except music videos, being up on my feet has me almost in tears from pain (again) so I need to figure out what I am going to do to get through the hours.
