Everyone has been whining about the weather this year. It’s been wonky. Warm when it should have been cold. Cold when it wasn’t predicted. Snow late in the season. It’s like a big Rubik’s cube that got all turned around. There is a silver lining. My hydrangeas are gorgeous this year. After three years of no blooms (when I threatened to rip them out), I have been rewarded with magnificent blooming shrubs. Yay, one for me!
It’s been a medical week for me. I’m still recovering from my back boo boo. Yesterday I had a simple 15 minute procedure that was uncomfortable. I had enough anxiety to trigger my IBS. Between the IBS issues and the anxiety, my back didn’t hurt at all. I wondered if it had run its course. Sadly not, after everything was done, I had my old back ache again. Boogers.
After the procedure the doc said to use an antibiotic ointment at night and the following morning. I went home and every damn one of our tubes of bacitracin and all its brothers were out of date. Used it anyway. I found one that expired this year. Close enough!
Happy summer to all in the northern hemisphere! Here was one of my favorite summer songs when I was a kid!
