It’s been a while again, I know, I just haven’t been doing much.
This morning I went grocery shopping and needed to get gas for the Subie. The last time I got gas was January 2nd, just shows how little I’ve been out. Anyway, as I was shopping my hip flexor really started acting up and was very painful, though I didn’t have any pain in my leg. I thought things were getting better, maybe they are, but shit, I was hoping to maybe, just maybe, get out and about a little tomorrow, now I don’t know. This weekend is forecast to be really nice with sunny skies and temps in the high 40s today and mid 50s tomorrow. Today is very windy, so the temps don’t feel all that warm, and tomorrow sounds like it could be just a windy.
I guess I’ll just have to wait and see how I feel tomorrow about going out. Also, I hope the warm and sunshine melts the snow we got the other day because my driveway is a mess and I refuse to get the snowblower out.
I’ve made my decision to get rid of this worthless pellet stove this spring, maybe sooner. I have propane forced air heating, so the ductwork runs under the floor, and if I have the pellet stove running, it warms the room but not the floor because the furnace doesn’t kick on, so that cold radiates around my feet making them cold. Also, I can’t stand the damn loud noise of the pellet stove. I only run it in the morning to warm the house and turn it off mid-morning. It takes about an hour to turn off, but what a relief it is once it’s off. Propane is fairly inexpensive here, and the cost of running the fans and such in the pellet stove being electric is much higher, electricity here is very high.
So, that piece of shit pellet stove is a goner.
It is, it is a beautiful day out. We have bright sunny skies with a temp of 43°F at 1:00 PM and rising. It is quite windy out though, so it does feel as warm as it is. Wish I could enjoy the day, but I have to work and I really can’t do much anyway. These temps should hold through to the first part of next week, then it will get colder again. Some forecasters are saying we could see an early spring, we’ll see how that goes, but I sure would like to see it.
I’ll try and update this blog more often.
I haven’t been posting much lately because I haven’t been doing anything. My sciatica is still really bothering me and I’m in too much pain to do a damn thing. I’ve been doing the exercises my chiropractor has told me to do, but they don’t seem to be working. So, this is why I haven’t been posting anything, there isn’t anything to post about.
Last night I was able to get a couple shot of the Snow Moon / Super Moon.
This is the first time in quite a while I’ve used my camera. I really miss being able to go out and take photos, it’s really the only joy I have.
We haven’t had any snowfall in quite a few days, maybe a week. It sure was nice not having to shovel or use the snowblower. That all ended today. Right now we’re getting some pretty heavy snowfall, but at least it’s light and fluffy. We’re forecast to get up to 6 inches, maybe more. If the snow stops sometime today, I’ll try to get it cleaned up, other wise it will be tomorrow and tomorrow is forecast to be quite a nice sunny day. With my back and leg issues/pain, I fucking hate winter.
Yesterday I took the day off to fix my snowblower shifter cable. That turned out to be a piece of cake easy. Before fixing the snowblower I went into Houghton shopping at WallyWorld because I needed a couple extra things besides groceries. I needed to stop many times due to my legs, as the pain was too much to walk. I barely made it around the store. After getting home, I unloaded the car one trip at a time and rest, then another trip and rest. The pain in my legs is changing a lot, but the pain is getting worse and this time while unloading the car my right leg went completely numb to the point where I couldn’t even feel if I had any weight on it. Very strange feeling. This was the first time the numbness happened and I think it’s from the drive. So that sure as hell rules out going anywhere this weekend for a drive. I’m getting really distraught of this. I tried some Hemp Oil, but that didn’t do a damn thing to help. Monday I have some proper CBD oil and rub coming in hopes that will help a little. I’m at the point where I can’t do anything, and I mean anything.
