One day at a time...

This morning I woke up with what I would consider a "full flare" of my f-word (fibromyalgia). My back hurts from my shoulders to my hips. It's insane. I wanna crawl back in bed and pull the covers over my head but I pushed through yesterday ... and I'm going to push through today... and I have to be there tomorrow because a co-worker is off and me and Angie are having lunch together ... then it  will be Friday. And that's how I make it. One day at a time, sweet Jesus.

Yesterday was the worst I've hurt in a long time but I had an appointment scheduled with a really sweet lady to help her review her life insurance plan with Big D so I had to tough it out at work. It was a great appointment... she bought a plan that is perfect for her situation and I felt good about it. If you're local (you know, in Northeast Georgia) or you're going to be visiting here... no matter how much life insurance you have in place... you should  schedule an appointment to let my boss review it with you. He does a great job at helping people discover their real needs and put together a plan they can afford to meet those needs. And... I really need to bring some appointments in. It's worth the trip, y'all. Well. Most of y'all. For some of you it would involve planes, trains and automobiles.

And if you have a chunk of money in a cd and you're bummed about the interest rates on it... and it's money that you never intend to need... you just want to grow it for your estate... why not put it in a single premium life insurance policy? You'll get a guaranteed interest rate that is way higher than what the bank offers.

Also yesterday... I wished a happy birthday to the wrong sister-in-law. I'm an idiot. Or just discombobulated.

I also forgot that I needed to reschedule the doctors appointment I have for today. I set it for 3pm and later remembered that I was supposed to do fasting blood work and... well, I'm not planning to fast all day. Overnight... sure... but all day? Nope. So... I called and they couldn't reschedule me for a morning appointment until the end of the month and that's not going to work because the second blood pressure medicine isn't working right... still having high bottom numbers... and I've been actively trying to get them to do something about it for over a month. I'm gonna have a durn stroke before they get me situated. I need a new doctor.

Angie and the girls went over the mountain to see Grandma yesterday. I soooo wish I could have gone with them because I miss my Steel Magnolia so much... but there was no way for me to do anything after work yesterday. I was so spent that I was nervous driving home. I was that wiped out. And dinner... I have no recollection of eating dinner. I did have popcorn. Not unhealthy popcorn... my microwaved honest to goodness real popcorn with no preservatives and additives... just corn... in a brown paper bag... with a little real butter drizzled on it.

I haven't put together my Easter tree yet. We're still decorated for Valentines Day.

I'm ready for March Madness. Pulling for University of Kentucky to win it all.

I'm planning to do chicken in the crockpot tomorrow. Any good crockpot chicken recipes you'd like to share with me? I usually just do chicken in salsa and serve it over rice.

Another boring blog... two days in a row... I haven't had comments in forever... y'all still out there?

Anyways... so that's my Whiny Wednesday... getting through the week one victory at a time. Love and hugs, y'all.
