I missed last week as early in the morning hubby had to be at the Ambulatory Care Center for his tri annual colonoscopy. (it was fine).I had not slept well and getting there at 6am in the dark was a true trial. 2 hours later I took him home. The latest anesthetic made him forget so every 5 minutes he asked the same question. I do not do well when I am tired so it was an early night and the next day the start of my week of horror. For 35 + years I have had Meniere's Disease and although we controlled the vertigo symptoms about 15 years ago the other symptoms rear their ugly heads to menace my life. Over the last three months my hearing has deteriorated and Tinnitus has taken residence drowning about most audible conversation and making life miserable. Tinnitus invites his miserable little friend over (Ear Fullness and Loss of balance)to participate in his takeover so that at times I feel wiped out. The Doc, with one of those long titles is really great and honest. A week of prednisone had yielded negative results so she inserted a tube in my ear added some ear drops finally persuaded me to a diuretic, very low dose and off I trotted home. The ear drops are a pain to insert as you have to lie 20 minutes with head down ear up! the diuretic causes constipation and that brings along it's nasty friend. So prunes and fiber with gallons of water solved that. So as you can see wednesday was not a good day to write on a blog. Oh a perhaps the worst of all the cats are on a fixed feeding schedule as MS Kitty is overweight and they are in protest and destruct mode.....watch too much TV and they have seen how to protest!!!
This week i am trying to make my journaling more fun. The photo is of my big desk and today I through down paint to produce something like under paper. Under paper is what you put down to avoid covering all around with paint. I use Silicone mats, thanks to Tim Holtz!, so no under paper So I started with Gelli plate then decided that was too controlled and what you see is the result of throwing almost dried up, cheap acrylics on brown wrapping paper and spreading with a rubber gloved hand. I should have used two gloves as the left hand and sleeve were multicolored. rush to hair stylist for renovation, forgot to feed cats, home and remembered it is Tuesday i need to do WOYWW.
yes it is rainy, cold and feels like UK
Then on to finish my Documented Life Project journal, ideas and now the start.
Have a great week and create lots of wonderful things.
