Pain :(

I've taken two Lortab and STILL my legs are hurting me badly.

I think it's starting to be time to seriously consider that knee surgery my doc has mentioned. It won't make me walk any better unless I can lose some of this poundage, but it WILL lessen the pain.

When two Lortab aren't cutting it, it's time to do something different.

I get so tired of being in pain. When I was Catholic I would "offer it up", but that didn't make it any easier. Just made me feel like I wasn't suffering for no reason at all. But. Thinking about that whole concept, offering up your suffering as a sacrifice for sinners?

It doesn't work. JESUS offered it up, once and for all. No more sacrifices are NEEDED. That was the whole POINT.

But still. I wish I still believed in offering it up. Like I said, then there would be SOME good out of this for SOMEBODY. Right now, the only good is to Big Pharma, making money off my prescription refills.

Still battling the smoking. Sam forgot to pick up the patches this evening, so I am still smoking more than I should, but I'm down to less than half of my smoking of just two days ago, so that's a plus. Tomorrow when I pick up my prescriptions, I'll buy the patches. And that should help. Prayer IS helping a LOT, but the patch and prayer sound like a winning combination to me.

me - wtf?

A note to my cat

Dear Pixel,

Mommy really thinks you're a MARVELOUS Mighty Huntress, and is so happy that you have taken on the task of killing the small grey furry vermin that invade our house every summer looking for relief from the heat..


Is it really necessary for you to bring your trophies, sometimes headless, into my bed to show them off?

I appreciate that you like giving Mommy presents, but can you find a new place to present them?

Thank you!

I'm so terribly tired

Insomnia. Didn't sleep for two days, last night got about four hours of sleep, and today is Evan's birthday party followed by some friends coming over in the evening for pizza and a movie.

There shall be KAWFEE.

I think there will be FUN, too.

Some ideas for using DW

I'm finding I am using DW more than I thought that I would. There's two reasons for this.

1) They make it very easy to crosspost from them to LJ. Everything I'm posting these days is being posted on DW first, which x-posts it to LJ, which is then nabbed by Facebook and published THERE as a note. So I can be read multiple places for friends who only have one thing or the other.

2) Offsite backup, baby! You can import your ENTIRE LJ, including your locked and filtered posts, AND the comments attached. The only thing that doesn't import are the icons, it posts your default one to DW. It also leaves your locks INTACT, so if it's private or filtered on LJ, the same lock or filter applies on DW. I've often worried what I would do if LJ went down for good. I'd lose a lot of good memories if LJ went down, but now I have full redundancy.
