So, I'm here to tell you pneumonia is not any fun - at my age or any age I guess.  I had it once many years ago, but don't remember it taking this long to recover from.

I'm currently seeing a "Nurse Practitioner" as my regular GP and I really, really like her.  Much more thorough than my regular MD.  So, to make a long story shorter - she heard something not explainable and I've had several tests and now have a couple of specialist referrals.

Don't really have time for all this and am extremely tired of being tired, and unable to breathe as well as I'd like😩😩

I did have two of my grown sons visit from far away while I was sick, one DIL and one granddaughter.  They tried to take care of me πŸ˜‰ and my DIL fed me the whole time while sons did all sorts of chores.  Enjoyed their visit but still tired πŸ˜’

I hate complainers too, so my rant is now officially over.  I'm seriously trying to post more frequently here, if only for myself and I promise I'll try to make my next post a more cheery one.

Just can't keep up

I love reading other blogs, and I have really good intentions (you know what's paved with those), but... here I am a year later writing my next blog post.  One doesn't keep followers that way 😊

Anyway, as a brief followup to my last several posts with the floor painting.  IF you choose to do this do plan to wait a LOOOOOONG time for the floor to dry (my son tells me it's "cure").  At any rate, apparently it takes a long time and you shouldn't put furniture on it before it's ready.  Well, obviously I was considerably more ready than my floor was.  It has MANY spots where the paint has pulled up.  Most anything heavy sitting on it that's been moved has removed the paint.

Very, very annoying... but it is what it is.  I did follow directions and read what other people had done... but I didn't ask the person who absolutely knew - my son (who is a Plant Manager in a paint company).

Why would I have thought of asking him? πŸ˜•

So, live and learn.  The floor is still a lovely painted aqua and it's still better than the carpet, thank you very much!
