|At least “The Fall Guy” got paid
to take a fall or two!
The doctors gave me some anti-inflammatory pills (not even the good stuff!), five days off from work, and starting this coming Friday, physical therapy. The time off to rest has helped a lot.
|Rotator cuff problems suck!|
I’ve been in constant contact with work (the gas station) and will be returning on Wednesday. We are staffed with a crew of all 40 something aged people who get along well and like working together. Rock and roll! Overnights have opened up so I’ve suggested that maybe I could take some of the graveyard shifts. A person could work all night and do his/her sleeping anywhere during the day… It might be a vandweller’s dream!
In other news, I’m sad to report that my father’s health is quickly declining. I had to scrap the plans to move to the country and am spending spare time helping him get to near daily doctor visits. It’s a labor of love. As Dad is slowing down, he has said that he thinks he may need to go to a care facility such as the Old Soldier’s Home in Marshalltown. Wherever my father ends up, the van and I will be there often to visit.
That’s about all that’s new right now… nothing exciting… just a lot of rest. Thankfully, with no rent or utility bills there is zero (perhaps even less than zero) stress from being laid up for a while and missing work.
Once this arm/shoulder thing is better, it will be fun to do some real camping (other than the nightly snooze) and also try some new recipes such as one I dreamed up for a healthy curried cashew chicken salad with cranberries. Of course, the wanderlust is still ever present.
For now, enjoy the rest of your week and I appreciate you taking the time to drop by. Make it a super good one.
