Chanel surfing

I channel surf on my tv and whenever I come to American chopper Ive got to stop!They built bikes for the make a wish foundation and many other charitable organizations,Ive got so much respect for this!

Living my dream

I was unhappy living in Scituate Living in someone Else's house by their
rules.I used to dream about getting my own place as I was enduring the pitfalls of not being the boss of my surroundings!Now I am and life is great!My next big big goal will be to get my licence back!I will to,its just taking longer than I anticipated!

Successfull scoot

I just had a very successfull scoot to walgreens and back :)!Very successfull for a couple reasons!No tips and I rememberd to get all my needs (that they had)!MY scooter performed admirably to!The battery leval stayed on fully charged the whole trip!I guess I fixed it,now I think I can plan a scoot to stop and shop in Holbrook :)!

feeling a tad better

After laying down,back in bed,I feel a little better,not well enough to go to the "y" thou!I called the "y" told Sheroyl and called "the ride" cancelled all my trips for today!Maybe Ill scoot to walgreens to fill the void!

last night

Last night suxed!I must have got sick (puked)3 x!I don't think I'm up for the "y" today but,I'm gonna try laying down for a few hrs!I couldn't get comfortable last night cause the left side of my hip was throbing badly!






































































































badly!

today's tasks

Ive gutta do my laundry today seeing as my homemaker pulled a no show!Ive got to book my rides 4 the wk.Maybe Ill scoot to walgreens too,if for no other reason,just cause I can :)!

could't sleep

It seems my scooter issues were preventing me from getting a good night's sleep!I got up and applied my great common sense to the issue and checked all the wires going to my charger 4 my scooter,unplugged and plugged back in some and it appears to be charging :)!B4 I take it out on the road Ive got to be sure the problem is fixed!Ive gutta do laundry latta today,so Ill use it to carry my laundry down to the laundry room,that should be an adequate test!Pretty good problem solving skills :)!

Got soaked

I just had to do a trash run without using my scooter!Not bad if its not pouring out,I got soaked!

Traped

Ive had no luck tring to fix my scooter and nobody is around I can ask for help :(!The weather is supposed to be bad so I guess I won't be scooting anyway!I called Lisa this morning and asked for a ride to walgreens,she was nice enough to give me one.This just sux,I feel trapped without my scooter working!I checked my laundry card and it seems just by bearly,Ill have enough to do 1 load of wash tomorrow,I would have had to walk to the office if not!I kept my mind off of my troubles by booking all my therapy rides!

still no luck

After fighting with my scooter tyring to remove the buttery,I think Ill go downstairs hopefully see someone and ASK for help!I don't like having to do this,GGRRRR!

issues

Ive got many issues being tbi but,one lately has been really needing to think about what day it is.I can always come up with the correct day but,it shouldn't take so much :(!

homemaker service

I had homemaker service yesterday for the 1st time!I was hopping a young blond would come but,I guess that was unrealistic :(!I was light on her cause it was the 1st time,I said I will do laundry you just clean.I guess you get what you pay for,I wasn't impressed at all!When she got done I even had to sweep my kichen floor but,I'm just not the type who calls complaining!Next time Ill have her change my bed!
