Going with the Flow this Week

What a week!  Some good, some bad, some angering.

Our decision to play "tourists" in Sedona was fun.  We loved it last time, but because we had Lucky with us we missed a LOT of gorgeous sites.  I posted the picture of Steve and me at the Enchantment Resort.  The Red Rock Magical Trolley ride was a great way to see the city and some places we'll definitely go back and walk.  

Sedona is simply GORGEOUS.   When I said, "you know this is prettier than the Grand Canyon."  He replied that the going phrase for those who are fortunate enough to live in this serene wonder is that "God created the Grand Canyon, but he lives in Sedona."  

That's a great explanation of the beauty.

We ate what we were told was the "famous" and best breakfast place in town-known for their 101 omelets, but the French toast "was to die for".

So after we finished our tour we went back.  It was cute and friendly.  I was starving since all I had had was a 24 ounce cup of coffee and my available morning meds.  Never should I go until 11:30 a.m. without food-I was BAD.

I went with omelet #101-PB & J with bananas.  I passed on the spuds and had fruit and asked for egg whites and 12 grain bread-light on the jelly.  It was very rich.  I probably would not have that again.  Steve went for an all meat omelet with salsa and avocado and sour cream.  Of course he also ordered the French toast.

We left there wondering what the fuss was about.  It was okay, really nothing special.  However, unlike the Blue Moon CafĂ© that we went to the last time-the bathrooms were clean.  

Next trip-we'll go to uptown and to the much cuter looking Golden Goose restaurant for breakfast.  Plus, our guide pointed out a great place that does foot massage and reflexology.  I'm up for trying that!

Tuesday was a bit of a downturn.  We had errands and I had another epidural.  I'm not sure what the difference is between a "full" and a "booster", but I can tell you they both HIT JUST THE RIGHT NERVES.  Spent the rest of the day with the fur babies on my lap and Steve handing me ice packs.

Better on Wednesday-at least it seems to have improved the lower back and below!  Shoulder stinks though.  Now for the real BAD thing.   At 9 a.m. my doorbell rang-process server with paperwork informing me that the guy who was cited for negligence and vehicular/bodily damages with several witnesses saying it was his fault-well his insurance company has the nerve to sue me for reckless driving and being in their client's way of speeding through a red light.


Called my brother-in-law and attorney.  Great, just great.

Thursday.  Since I'm writing this on Wednesday- let's just say that I have my usual appointment with my rheumatologist and my first Reclast infusion.  Not that anyone there actually suggested anything to me, but I read up on this stuff on the internet.  Seems I should really, really hydrate today, tomorrow and Friday.  I may have no reaction or I may feel as if I have the worst case of the flu-ever.

I'm hoping it's the first, since frankly, I'm sick of feeling awful and don't need any more.  Plus-I'm supposed to entertain Dylan on Friday while Steve has to work on his day off.

REALLY GOOD NEWS:  We are officially on baby watch!  Could be anytime now.  Hoping Samantha has as easy a birth as she's had a pregnancy.  Can hardly wait to see and hold Jackson Dale!

Now I've heard a couple of times from Big Dave that he's been unable to make a comment on the various blogs-I have no idea why and how the change happened.  If you've been reading for any length of time-you know that this glitch could take a while to fix.  But I did get Dave's comments on my e-mail-so go ahead and send them that way!  Love to hear from everyone!

Love it

    • Sounds like a hectic week for you...cannot believe about that guy’s insurance company, it takes all kinds.  Our son was hit last week Friday from behind, he is o.k., thank God and the car is totaled.  The middle aged woman had her eyes off the road (probably on her phone) and slammed into him, so I know the feeling of being stressed out.

    • I think the government should just outlaw every aspect of using a cell phone while driving myself.

      sorry about your son’s car-but thank goodness he’s in one piece.
