Labor Day 9-3

Tomorrow is my older brother, Richard's birthday.  We haven't spoken since July of 2011.  I was thinking about him the other day.  I was wondering how he was doing, and how his family was doing.  Since he isn't speaking to me right now, I am not sure.  My younger brother hasn't heard from him either.  I did see my younger brother, Andrew at our cousin, Lia's wedding.  We had a nice visit together, Andrew and I.

It is another bad headache day again.  I am really tired of these headaches but there isn't too much I can do about them right now.  I just have to hope that the new medicine will really work and I will not have as many as I do right now.  It is exhausting having bad headaches 4 to 5 times a week and I am exhausted enough.

Anyways, today was the annual bike parade for our neighborhood.  I took the little scooter and I went to the top of the hill to meet the participants.  I spoke to one neighbor the whole parade.  She lives across the street from me and is such a sweetheart of a girl.  Her daughter, Bella, is now 5 and oh my, has she grown.  She is not to excited to start Kindergarten tomorrow but she is starting.  She is a really nice little girl and her mom is very nice too.  Nikki is almost 26 now.  I remember when she was younger and running around the neighborhood.  Her brother, Shane, used to help mom a lot too.  He is doing well too.

It is so nice to be able to wash and dry my own hair again.  It has been about 3 1/2 years since I could do it myself because of the bursitis in my left shoulder.  It is much better now.  I still do not have a full range of motion, but hey, I can do my own hair so I am happy with the range of motion.  So I may never be able to lift the arm straight up to the sky, I don't particular care as long as I can still do my own hair.  One of the small things in life that makes my life better, that is all I can say about it.  Although, I must admit, I am exhausted when I am done drying it.  Because my hair is so long, it gets really tangled.  I thought condition would improve that, but no, it didn't.  I need detangler stuff for sure.  Oh my.  It feels like nap time.

Tomorrow is the first day of school for the rest of the kids in the area.  In Michigan, public schools cannot start until after Labor Day so since today is Labor Day, tomorrow is the first day of school.  I am looking forward to some cooler (not winter mind you) weather that I can ache less in and breathe better in.  Fall is my time of year.  I love fall.  I love spring too.  Summer and Winter, not so much.  I don't particularly do well in extreme heat or extreme cold, both are not good for Fibromyalgia not to mention asthma.

I am watching a Rizzoli and Isles marathon.  I really like this show.  Well, I am now completely exhausted so I am off for a nap.


  1. have you started your new headache meds yet? I really hope you get relief soon. Your neighborhood sounds like a fun place...lots of families around makes it nice. take care.

  2. I agree with Joanne, your neighborhood sounds great! Hope you're doing well :)
