News from the front
(Assuming where I am is the front, since the prompt originates here … at the front.)
I killed two birds with one stone today. Going out once, that is, and getting two things done.
I visited my mum for the first time at the nursing home since she moved in in June. We sat and chatted about the same things over and over again for an hour. Nothing ever gets old, ironically.
Then I braved the (mostly empty) mall. Shoe store and Toys ‘R’ Us. No line-ups, just the way I like it. I really, seriously, have to get my Christmas shopping done within the next couple of weeks.
If only …
Ugh, I don’t want to complain.
Okay, so I’ll just say it.
Good news first?
Bad news first?
I can’t hear you, so I’ll decide.
I still have the tinnitus, but I’m able to ignore it.
And the heartburn seems to have pretty much cleared up. Yay!
But now I have a frozen shoulder again. And I have no idea why.
It’s the left one this time, which is helpful.
But it still sucks.

Tinnitus is horrible 😦 I’ve had it for ten years now (I don’t think its going away now so I have learned to live with it!) I hope yours goes away soon!

I’m glad you got to visit your mum! Getting old seems like there’s always something flaring up. It’s frustrating when we don’t know what triggered it. But at least they don’t all flare at once. Hoping more days of good health where the tinnitus fades into the background.

Yep getting old sucks. Glad the tinnitus is bearable. Mine has settled since we moved. Sorry to hear about the frozen shoulder. Hope the pain isn’t too bad and that it eases soon. Must have felt good to be able to visit you Mum. I’ve only braved a mall a couple of times – my hairdresser is based in a department store so I’ve had to but I haven’t lingered.

Hi Wendy. Having tinnitus, I’m curious about why yours got better when you moved. Glad it did!

I can’t help thinking maybe it’s stress related or worse when I’m sleep deprived and more aware of it.

Thanks you. I bet stress plays a role.

I’m glad you were able to see your mom. I’ve done some shopping but I haven’t braved a mall. Fortunately, we opted for minimal gift-giving when I retired. It’s good to hear (sorry) that you can ignore the tinnitus, but sorry about the shoulder. I’m familiar with both.
I hope you have a great week, Linda. And, since you mentioned how the prompt starts here, thanks for hosting!
