Too much going on....

I am too tired to think straight tonight...should be in bed but am just sitting....just to enjoy it.

Roger's back has been really bothering him...actually the sciatic nerve...started this weekend and just gradually getting worse and worse. He called our chiropractor's office Monday morn and no one in...left a message. We know he has been cutting down hours, so knowing he might not even be in for a few days, I called another chiropractor that our oldest daughter has used and liked.

He was able to get in yesterday. After we got back from there, and it finally quit raining I ran to our Walmart to pick up a prescription. While there, I figured I might as well stock up on catfood and a few other things. When I got in a line to check out, I got behind a young man that had a couple kids with him, and he was actually in the process of paying.

Something happened, and the cashier had to get the manager, who in turn had to do something that cancelled the whole transaction...so he had to take all the stuff out of the bags for them to be rescanned...so I was ready to be out of there by the time I got through. After leaving there, stopped at the grocery for just a few items, then home.

Well, we were thinking I needed new brake pads on the Rav4, so called the Toyota dealership and got an appointment with them for this morning...I was down there by 7:30 and had to wait between two and three hours...Roger just wasn't able to get in and out of the truck to pick me up....so just took my kindle and sat and read while I waited.

It turns out it is not my brakes, but the water pump is going out...and it is still under warranty...thank God. But have to take it back in next Tuesday for that to be done.

Also had to run Roger back to the chiropractor this afternoon. so, no time at all for blogging. Not sure if I will get any time tomorrow either...

I know what it is like to post when you're exhausted, I do it a lot. I don't know if we should be gratified or need to cut back. Guess it's an addiction.

No wonder you're so tired. I'm like you - can't sleep if too tired.

Oh dear I'm not surprised you are tired. Sounds as if you have a lot going on. I hope the prescription and chiropractor help Roger's back pain - a bad back is no fun at all.
I know what it is like to be too tired and not be able to sleep. I am quite often up in the wee small hours 'cause I can't sleep.
Hope things improve for you tomorrow.

A fine account of a day in your life. I certainly hope Roger has gotten some relief from that pain. I've had plenty of that and it's no fun! Aren't you glad you have your Kindle to help pass the time. I read on my iPad when I'm getting my oil changed. Just finished the Hunger Games trilogy.

Hi Rose, Sounds like my life. We are meeting each other coming and going all of the time these days, it seems... SO--I'm taking a Blog Break next week.... Just too much going on!!!!

Take care of you--and take care of Roger.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wow, you are busy, we sure have days like this. I hope Roger feels better soon.

What a rotten day! Well, there's always tomorrow! :-) Hope your hubby's back gets better. My husband has had problems with sciatica at times too, and I know how painful it can be!

You sound very busy, Rose. I know the feeling. I'm trying to catch up from last week before two more busy days (tomorrow and Wednesday). I have my posts all up but I'm very behind in getting around to other bloggers!
