this is new…

AKKK! I have 5 projects in progress; a preemie baby hat, a knitting needle bag, a baby blanket, and a cup cozy, and a toddler hat! What’s wrong with me? lol I need to get them put into zip-loc bags to keep them sorted well. I have never allowed this to happen before. I also got a check from that paper route Steve and I tried to do and I bought enough yarn on clearance to make myself a lovely pair of socks and a sweater or vest – since I can’t wear a bra, I need a vest that drapes in the front. The yarn is a denim blue and so pretty,

That just leaves me needing to fill out the BOA papers and get them faxed.

The fibro peak is over. I had a terrible week. I am still fighting the joint ickies, and the sleepies and general junk, but I think the pain levels have resettled back to about a 3 and I can deal with that. I’m doing my stretches the PT gave me. My neck complains like crazy but the headache seems to have let go of me. Thank the Universe for that! I thought I was gonna have a stroke. Steve and I talked about it, and there really is no doubt I have Fibromyalgia. So I am going to deal with my aches and pains from that perspective.

We got some cool weather veges planted this week. It felt so good to get out in the dirt. Steve got the compost turned and we put the plants in the beds and repotted some things. Man I felt happy. Jackie just watched us and crunched dirt clods! lol

About Green Jean Granny

I believe in and practice positive living with a bit of a barb it seems. I love YARN, music, reading, history, and gemstones. I am passionate about the Earth. I am a true homebody. I've said I was Pagan for years to separate myself from a churchy upbringing and judgmental family that left me outside of its beliefs. I believe it's our responsibility to tend and protect the Earth. I basically do my thing in a (not so) quiet, amused way. I believe in the power of my own hands, the energy of combined prayer, and caring for the earth. I attend a nondenominational Christian Church. I have 6 kids, all home-born and successfully breastfed. The oldest 5 are grown. The youngest is attending Community College and living at home. I'm the oldest of 9, daughter of a missionary mother who lives in The Republic of Congo, married to the son of a preacher, with 3 spoiled dogs and and an add on (my daughter's pit bull lives here for a bit while she hikes the Appalachian Trail. Right now, there is small balance after yrs of unemployment. My disability was approved due to degenerative disc disease and fibromyalgia. I believe we owe it to ourselves to protect our mental health. It's precious and the one thing we can control. I dislike my own housework and I talk too much. I bought a house in North Carolina and after trying to get my husband here for 6 months, he had a stroke. I'm a two-time caregiver. Steve's got hemiparesis and diabetes and is learning to walk and trying to use his right side again. It's slow going. Our 10 kitties were rehomed by rescue after his stroke.

    Ok we have never discussed this, but why is it that you cant wear a bra? Curiosity, mind you. I can wear one for a few hours and then the pain around my ribcage becomes too much to bear. Theyve never figured out why I hurt in a band around the bottom of my ribs. Is your issue similar?

  2. I can’t bear the weight on my shoulder/neck muscles of the straps. I also develop rash where the band rests around my ribcage underneath my breasts. No bra, no rash.
