    The good news is that hubby is suppose to get to go downstairs to PHYSICAL THERAPY tomorrow morning. Maybe the conversations that were held this past week really did get some attention. He sounded excited about just getting the opportunity to maybe try walking. Yesterday, he never got up out of bed said he just didn't feel like it. He doesn't like the pain medication because it makes him dopey. He wants to know what is going on around him. He uses heat packs which helps.  He did have a surprise in the afternoon. His oldest two grandsons and mom came to see him for his birthday. He hadn't seen them since Christmas. I get to see them a little more often  with watching basketball.
    The snow is coming in later tonight another 5-6 inches is expected tomorrow with some more at the end of the week. I don't know exactly where it will be put. We had 5 inches this last weekend. I can deal with the snow, it is the ice that I can't handle. I have cancelled the appointment for tomorrow because of the weather. My doctor told me that he didn't want me driving in it. I don't have any problems, basically it was a wellness check that you have to do once a year.
      My youngest grandson was a little disappointed that the Pine Wood Derby got cancelled last Saturday. My driveway didn't get cleaned out until 4 in the afternoon on Saturday. I wasn't going to get to go anyway because of my driveway being plowed shut when they cleaned the street. I live on an emergency snow route so if I can get out of my driveway I can make it to the grocery store which isn't that far away. We are to get a new pharmacy in our neighbor hood. I have with the bank, the grocery store, Subway, Taco Bell, K-Mart right close to me.  We don't really have city blocks out here because most of the houses around me were built on farm land. When we built our home a long time ago it was like living in the country also with all of the farm land around us, but it isn't that way anymore. At least we don't have apartments.
    What did you think of the Super Bowl? I was happy that Seattle won, because I think Denver thought they had it won before they even played the game. I thought they needed a reality check. I know that Denver is closer to home, but I just think their quarterback has an ego problem. I know that I am probably stepping on some toes and I am sorry, but that is just my opinion . I don't voice it often about football. I did like some of the commercial especially Budweiser's " Puppy Love". I cried when I saw their Welcome Home for a Hero serving in the military. I think it hit to close to home knowing what they go through when they are in harms way. That is partially being part of a military family with having 5 brothers serve in the military plus my oldest son went in right after he graduated from high school. He was in the first Gulf War. I got ban from the television because I was to emotional because I wanted to know what was going on. I have a nephew in Afghanistan right now. 
     There is an election tomorrow to narrow down the people running for the City Council. The final choices will be made in April. I really don't know who to vote for because I don't know that much about any of those running. They haven't really talked that much about any of them. I know that we need a change, but in politics do we really get it when we do vote new people in. I think most of them just give lip service. 
     What a array of subjects tonight's blog  has? Hopefully I didn't step on to many toes and If I did I am sorry. If you get the bad weather, please be careful and stay safe. Take care.

You didn't step on any of MY toes, Shirley. lol I quit watching NFL whenever the Packers are out of the game.

I am SOOO happy that your hubby is going down for some PT tomorrow. That is wonderful news. I am tickled, too, that the grands and Mom stopped by to see him. I know he must miss family being in there ad miss some of the outings you two used to do.

How handy to live on the snow route-I am sure that is one of the first ones plowed. It is funny how everything just grows up and out, isn't it? All the old farmland taken over by homes and commerce. I guess it is just the voice of progress.

I am off to bed here soon. Have a good night and stay inside where it is safe and warm and dry. xo Diana

Don't worry about stepping on toes. You have a right to your opinion. Glad to hear good news about your husband. Keep that snow cause I don't want any! It reached 72 here in SC yesterday!

Quinn said...

My toes are fine, but it wouldn't matter anyway...your blog, your voice! :)
Excellent news about your husband's PT! So glad to hear all your efforts to keep attention on his situation are having a positive effect!
I hope you can stay safely indoors, enjoying the snow without having to deal with it (or the ice, which is also my biggest risk) at all.

Cindy said...

That is good news about the physical therapy!! He is lucky to have you in his corner encouraging and advocating for him!!

Hi Shirley it is snowing like crazy here now-I guess we are to get 5" which is better than a foot that kc is suppose to get today. lol good news about your husband!
I agree with you totally-I never liked the Manning brothers-they definatly have ego problems I only stayed watching the game cause I was looking for the Budweiser commercials which never disappoint.
I am a big Packers fan so I was not rooting for either team-didn't care for either one of them this year. I am looking forward to watching the olympics though

Cindy said...

It's a blizzard here in Indianapolis again, I barely made it home from work today! I think I get a stay home day tomorrow. We watched the superbowl last weekend, just out of curiosity, since Denver's quarterback used to be ours, but we didn't really care who won, we just wanted to see the commercials-as a military family the Welcome Home one was our favorite. So happy your hubby is going to start some therapy, yippee!! Stay safe and warm

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Yay for your hubby's getting to go to PT! I didn't really have a big interest in the Super Bowl, but was rooting for the Broncos because BG and my son were. I don't know the QB personally and I haven't read anything about his ego being a problem, so I can't comment on that. All I have read is what a nice guy he is. Don't worry, you didn't step on my toes!
We have had snow here all day long. Don't know what the amounts are, but it's more than enough! I hope you are staying warm and safe. Take care!

Kim said...

Its really great news about the physical therapy. Getting that little bit of exercise should make him feel better.

This sounds like a great news! I'm sure this will be very uplifting for your husband. All the best to him. We could see snow here in Texas Thursday. It's very cold this week. Glad to see you are taking precautions and staying safe.
Have a great rest of the week.
