Temperature 67 Degrees

First Step Forward In Treatment

Time To Pay Up

Ah what a beautiful cold, crisp morning.  When we awoke it was 42 degrees outside and a nice brisk 59 degrees in our living room.  As long as it doesn’t go down in the 30’s we usually leave the heat off at night.  The first one up – guess who – gets to turn the heat pump on inorder to warm up the house.

We didn’t have any early morning appointments so we just sort of eased into the day real slow.  A cup of coffee or two and a muffin got us started.

We had one phone call to make this morning which once it was over convinced us that – yes – we were going to have to have someone do our taxes this year.  But before we get to that. . .

I had an appointment at my urologist for my first hormone shot.  Now, I won’t go so far to say that I’m a chicken when it comes to needles.  But suffice to say I do have a strong dislike for them.

Especially when someone is poking one anywhere into my body.  Even more so when its my  gluteus maximus that is the intended target.

Well, I’m sure you can guess what the intended target was this afternoon.  And for the next 12 shots!

Of course the one with the sharp, pointy thing in their hand always says I guarantee you this won’t hurt a bit.  I felt like saying, OK, if that is so you give me my shot and I’ll give you one for good measure.  

One down, eleven more to go.

Time now to pay up.  Like in Lets figure out how much we owe this year in taxes.  Ms. Barbara usually does our taxes but not this time.  She took one look at the twenty six pages of forms that she had received regarding our taxes and just shook her head.

So off we went to the local H&R Block office in Brooksville.  Ms Barbara took everything in and came out in a bit saying that she felt comfortable with the tax preparer who would be taking care of our taxes.  Oh, I’m sure we’ll end up owing, the only question is how much.

Home again it was time prepare lunch.  This one we could handle.  I fired up the grill and prepared a bunch of boneless pork ribs.  Ms Barbara added some spanish rice and vegtables to the mix and we had one delicious lunch.

That was our day on The Road of Retirement.  It was another easy going day that we absolutely enjoyed together.  We accomplished what we set out to do.  That’s good enough for us.

  1. Wow, the weather there really fluctuates this year. The good thing is tomorrow you may see 80°. We’re going to have to wait to see those temps but we will see high 60s this week. YAHOO! By the end of the 12 shots you’ll be an old pro. Will include you in our prayer chain at church.. When do you move into your house? Did you find the furniture yet? Wishing you both a great week. What is your mailing address because I think someone is having a birthday in the near future?


    1. Thanks so much for the prayers. We’re going on the road for two months, back to the house the 3rd week of June which is when we will move in. Then in a week or two it will be up to Jacksonville for treatment. We’ll probably be up there for three months. We have our living room and bedroom furniture. It will be delivered in June. Our mailing address remains 411 Walnut Street, Box13375, Green Cove Springs, Florida, 32043. Have a great day.


  2. Isn’t it nice when you can “ease into the day real slow?” It’s a good day when you “accomplish what we set out to do.” Glad you have started down the road of recovery. You are in my daily prayers. Enjoy your day today!
