Color my World

My week has been a blur, not in a particularly good way. I dislike weeks that basically just drift away which is what this one did. Chemo Tuesday meant Wednesday and Thursday were low energy, low brain power. Fatigue is a real thing. Feeling almost human today but the smoke hovering over our little valley of Toledo means being careful about outside time.

I have spent some trying to figure out how to get the Interrobang punctuation mark on my iPad but iPad says no unless I install new keyboards or just cut and paste. Maybe later I will research Android and have it on my phone. It is just such a fun way of saying WTF. 🙂

I have also been on an unintentional shopping spree this week. I ordered some OTC hearing aids. I have one hearing aid that I spent a small cars worth of money on nine years or so ago but my ears are too small and it hurts so I can only wear it every two or three days. It also eats batteries. One every time I use it. I think it is just lovely that they finally allowed OTC hearing aids. The first time I was quoted for ONE hearing aid it was $3500 dollars. For ONE. I discovered a significant cost savings by getting them through Costco Hearing Centers but still very expensive. The inexpensive ones I just ordered are $89 for two that I have since learned are not left/right specific and they are rechargeable. Are they the same as the $3500 ones? No. They are not fined tuned to my frequencies. Do I care? I just want to understand language even when people are standing on my right side. I have also read that they will help with tinnitus which would be a bonus.

I bought new filters for my air cleaners that turned into also buying a new air cleaner because it was a deal too good to pass up and includes a washable filter.

I am also waiting for a delivery of Iron (for my body, not welding). My blood work shows might be a little problem there. This is only annoying because I use to take a supplement but when I ran out I stopped. Because I am stupid sometimes.

I am also waiting for a hose. I bought a new 50ft collapsible hose and they sent me a 25ft hose in a 50ft package and it has been a week of chasing messages. We agreed on a half refund and I ordered a 50ft from some other place.

So next week will be like freaking Christmas morning every day.

Oh – also some Kind Bar minis. I have a subscription and it is due today I think.

I would like to show you my boxers.

I bought these so long ago, I want to say 25 years. My kids were very small and I saw them hanging on a clearance rack at KMart for a couple of dollars. At that time we were so poor that is was a big splurge! They keep me humble. We have gone through years that they were too small, and years when they were shoved in the back of a drawer and forgotten. But here they are. Do you know your oldest piece of clothing?

Going out to dinner tonight so that will be nice.

    Love the boxer story. Glad your feeling better. I have cloths that now fit again as well since loosing some weight after finding out surprise diabetes. I have a size zero pair if jeans I kept that I wore when I was first dating my husband. Palmettos was the brand. Love kind bars..keto friendly, low sugar & carbs😄

      Uhg on the diabetes. Also – a size freaking zero??? I think I fit into a size 2 for exactly 4 and a half minutes once. 🙂
      I keep boxes and boxes of the kind bar mini’s around because they are so easy to just grab and so much better for us than the Kit-Kat bars I also usually have around.
