I am…

Well hello everyone. First I want to thank everyone for the comments and the emails. During my absence it has been nice to see I was not forgotten because I have not forgotten any of you. I will get around to visit everyone and catch up this week.

 

So what’s up?

Question 1 – No the knee is not much better. Heading into week 7 and the swelling has not lessened much and in fact by the end of the day my leg is swollen from mid-thigh through my ankle if I don’t stay off of it. It is expected to take another 4-6 weeks. I am now up to 1000 mg of Ibuprofen and getting ready to increase the dosage. A good part of my absence is due to the pain and not wanting to complain all the time. It takes great effort just to do the normal things in life, walk the dog, get in and out of the car, go to the store (Walmart is certainly a dreaded trip) then when I get home all I can do is sleep.

Question 2 – The new job — Well a leap it was. I finished the third week of training and made almost 400 cold calls in one week. I hated it. I didn’t take the hang ups personally and some people were actually very nice. I was working 50+ hours and not making any money and the costs were rising. I just did not have the "sales" personality although I truly believe in what we were offering. So I am on the job search again.

 

Other news…

My niece and her dogs won first place in the SPCA parade – especially since they were dressed in Rays uniforms. Here’s a picture from last year when they went as Bucs…

Speaking of the Rays, yeah I know they didn’t win the World Series but what a ride! It’s always fun to root for the underdog. From last to second – not bad.

Lil dog is, well, lil dog. I think he is enjoying having me home the last couple of days. He is not usually a lap dog but the past couple of days he will come over and sleep on my lap.  The puppy is now known as tiny dog. He is absolutely adorable. His ears stand up and he is looking more like a Chihuahua on the husky side. Since he is mixed we can’t be sure exactly what he is. He is a feisty little thing though. He has no problem barking and bossing the bigger dogs around.

My son and tiny dog   Now how cute is that? If I knew the ears were going to be so big we could have called him radar – LOL.

Well, finally, here’s something to entertain you in the true Rosebay tradition. Enjoy:

  1. I do hope that your knee settles down soon. I agree about Wally World. It is always a dreaded trip for me. Seems to always cost about $100 just to get out of the door.

  2. Take it easy with the knee, wish you a speedy recovery. I tried cold calling, not an easy job and I didn\’t stay long either. :). Cute dogs..Wuff!

  4. Sorry to hear your knee is still giving you problems.  I didn\’t realize it would take so long to heal.  Also sorry to hear the job didn\’t work out – hope you find something soon.  Little dog is so cute.  His name definitely fits.  Have a great day.  Hugs

  5. When one door closes another opens.  I am sure you will find a job that is right for you.  I am so sorry about the pain you are in.  I hope your recovery will start to get easier for you.  Tiny dog is very cute and radar would have been a cute name too.

  9. I\’m sure sorry to hear that the knee situation is as bad as it is.  I have a friend that had two knee replacements and going through the recovery time with him was a personal hell..not fun at all.  He often gets swelling even long after the surgery when he does too much.  I hope things get better before long.  That\’s a very cute dog for sure!  I love dogs!

  10. Sure hope your knee comes around soon.  It is certainly no fun being hampered like that.  Take is easy and hopefully it will heal faster.  Love the dogs, but then I\’m a dog person.

  13. Welcome back for your unfun holiday! Ken had knee surgery but he\’s healing well, unlike the problems you\’re having. I feel bad for you, they should add something to the Motrin you\’re taking to ease the pain some, I know I am not a doctor but it would be nice if you are going to by laid up at least you have some lessoning of the pain. The pictures are GREAT!!!
     
    Have a wonderful day!!!

  15. Good to hear from you! Sorry to hear that the knee is not cooperating.Be careful with the Ibuprofin, Too much is not good for your stomach. Maybe Extra Strength Tylenol? The mgs are higher and you won\’t have to take so many. You put out such a positve vibe, I know a better job will come along. The tiny dog is a cutie! Kinda looks like Ren. I only have fish for pets right now, but I might post pictures of them. Hard to get them to sit still. Hee-hee.

    Glad you enjoyed your browse Wendy. I was squeezing time restraints earlier, ‘n didn’t have time for a proper Hello. So, Hellooo …
    All In the Family was a favourite ‘a mine as well oh so many years ago, however, I’ve not coined it’s title as schtick, nor for personality reasons. I am definitely somewhat a curmudgeon by nature, but not with the blatant prejudices. My name is indeed Archie, and “da’ Bunker” is the space betwixed me ears. So there ya go, ‘n now ya knows.
    Anyways Wendy, I’m on the fly again here. Gave a friend’s dog a bath today, so goin over ta score sone din din. Fare is fair, right?? *grins … * I did have a wee look about, and enjoyed a few giggles of the comedic content, and going back to September to see if I could figure out what happened to your knee, came across your adventure in Wisconsin. The land of lakes. Beautiful country for sure. Still no really any wiser of the knee. Take good care Wendy, ‘n will catch ya later. Oh yeah … the video is hilarious. Too cute.
    Ciao Belle …
