Jeremiah was a bullfrog

Out LATE last night, and damn...I'm tired this morning. Yesterday felt like it went on for weeks. The test went fine---a MRI of the "open" kind, is a piece of cake...although I was in that damned thing for an hour and a half. I laid there so long that I could no longer feel the pain in my legs or back, I was completely numb from the waist down----and that was fine, until it was time to stand up. Um...that was painful. Then H and I had lunch, then I went to work. Soon after i got home, we went out----and had a good time. But I really am very sleepy this morning. Probably because I took all my damned pills at two thirty am instead of ten pm. I would like nothing more than to go back to bed, but I have to pull it together and get to work, at least for a few hours today.

YS got the job! Thank you for all the good wishes and prayers and luck. I am sure that is why he got it. :) I am really hoping that this will turn out to be just the thing for him. Young people have such a hard time, trying to find what they want, what they like, sometimes just what they can live with. He seriously prefers physical labor, but his back is NOT going to hold up to years of that. He enjoys working hard, and going home tired. Both he and OS worry that they will get fat, and working out and working hard have become all important. They are worse than any girl I ever met. (Seriously, I know I have done this to them. I have always been this way about myself, who knew it would transfer to my SONS?) But anyway, this will be his first desk job, and he is worried that he will not be able to sit in an office all day. I am really praying that it works for him---there certainly is more future in this type of work.

This is the last day of operation for the Ice Cream Store this year. It will be closed until the first of March. I am quite happy about it, it certainly lessens my work load...although H really isn't all that excited. He will work at the garage with me in the service department through the winter, as well as get some work done around here...(I hope). If I were him, I would be so excited, but who can figure a man out?

I suppose I really ought to get my act together and get to work. Ugh. I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful Saturday. Over and out.

Mornin' Jamie Darlin'! Well, at least you went out partyin to feel like crap this morning. I just stayed up way too late here blogging, and I feel like I have a hangover. Lord, getting old sucks!

CONGRATS to YS! I hope this works out great for him too! And I am glad for YOU that the icecream store is closing for the season. One job is more than enough as it is.

How long do you have to wait for the MRI results? Please don't tell me two weeks or something horrible like that? I can just guess how laying flat on something hard like that was torture to your poor back and legs. Damn, Jamie, we gotta get you a new body - hmm, perhaps we could take someone out that is really healthy, but not a nice person, and could get you a transplant?!?!! (Oh Josie, bad girl!)

hiya jamie....
congrats to the boy!! woot woo! i do hope it turns out to be something he can enjoy too. if he has back problems already , he reallllly needs to know how important it is to take care of it now. not twenty years down the road. good luck to him.

and for you... yes, how long for the results? be sure to let us know!

glad you get to cut the ice cream store out of your days and weeks. the extra rest will do you wonders.

did you have a cold one for me last night? it felt like it. :)))

anyhow... take a nap after work, and hope you have a great - feel good - day!

Do you ever look back on your youth and think how much you wish that you knew then what you know now?

I was really, really lucky...got very good jobs easily. Now, I look around me at the job market and see just how hard things really are, you know?

And I freelance, but if I ever wanted to get back into the work force full time, wow...that could get dicey. I am a 49 year old woman who has taken years and years off to raise a child. I'd be up against all those young thangs....

YEOW.
