Today was a good day.I got some things done!I needed to get in my head about my IRS payments!I went to the site,Ive just gutta remember to start typing official payments in my browser!I always use the same password on most everything but,I tried it here and didn't work!I clicked on forgot password and got it mailed to me!Its pretty cool,they list my payments so I'll always know if I paid them!I had some emails to compose,one to KJ about the glasses I had made to help my eyes work together.I was living in Scituate at the time I got them!I'm wondering if they go by a home address or phone number!Ive got a dr.Katze appt. coming up,I want him to recommend me for the driving evaluation,Ive gutta get my eyes working together!


Tomorrow I've got the YMCA to go to for my resistance training!I work hard on this too!Pool season is vast approaching and I've got to get this 53 yr old body BUFF :)  !

My day started in the normal way,COFFEE :)!Then I had hics,we went to the big apple circus in Boston!That was fun,lots of acrobats,illusionists,animals,the most beautiful horses!Then I had an appt. with dr.Koebell for my shots of bowtox,for my muscle tone!I did have a fall today but I didn't get hurt at all!Not even my pride cause my corn on my right little toe is what I believe caused my fall!Tomorrow I'm going to the ymca to workout,pool season is approaching,gutta get this 53 yr old body buff! :)

Today has been a great day!Ive had hics but I really can't remember what went on in our groups all I can remember is my brain was always stimulated!Then this afternoon I scooted to D&D's for a large hot french vanilla coffee!Bri and I were texting each other,I filled my pill box,made dinna,kinda picked up around here,I pick up as I go so there is never much picking up to do :)!I'm not taking many meds so doing my pill box is simple!I'm only taking crestor-for my cholesterol,emeprosle,heartburn,my vitamins,and I just started taking a fish oil tablet!Ive got to take my vacuum apart soon cause the homemaker last week broke it,the brush in the power heads not working!I used to work on them before,I was always changing belts on my older ones b4 my tbi!

Ive been to the YMCA today and had a great workout!I just got in from a tenets meeting here @ ramblewood!I asked,whats up with the pool?The very pretty Kim said they are working on it now.I guess the meeting is good so we can have our issues addressed but for me its a social event :)!Now to make dinna.


I got email confirmation of my payment to the IRS!Now the trick is to remember how I did it!Ill save the email and I forwarded it to KJ!I think that's enough to be sure of this,this is important!

figured it out

I figured out how I could pay what I owe the IRS online:)I had to create an account,I hope I remember the password,I will :)!I bookmarked the website,I think its got something to do with payments!Ive got an email confirming I made an account though :)!

KJ has been here for our home visit!We filled out what I needed for the YMCA and she looked at my printer,its seems as if they sent me a wrong cartage!We ordered another and she took the wrong one along with the info to the place I got them from to get a credit,they are not cheap!I have yet to check Lissy's fb page to see what happened last night after the gunfire!

4.14.12 after 6 pm

Well Ive survived 10yrs and one day from my motorcycle accident!Ive had a success full scoot to Walgreen's today!Ive got trips to walmart tomorrow but,I'm thinking I really don't need to go!My print cartridges came in the snail mail today,I was able to meet all my needs by scooting to wallgreens today!I guess Ill wait to see my times but my foot is bothering me so I should stay off it as much as I can!I've just got laundry and to book my rides tomorrow so I should be able to rest it :)!


Today makes ten yrs Ive been living with tramatic brain injury!I don't know how I feel about that!I do realize because of my work ethic Ive been able to progress but,I want MORE :) !


Happy Friday 13th!I'm not much of a superstitious guy but there are not many Friday the 13ths!Today I'm going to the YMCA for my workout then who knows what,maybe call Lisa see if she wants to walk to walgreens.Ill end up scooting there anyway :)


Its almost 4/14,ten years of living with traumatic brain injury!I am proud of how far Ive come but I'm no way satisfied!I want to drive again!We did something a little different today @ hics.We had two groups,AS ran the 1st about clutter in your home and to have it organized!I'm good with that,when I first moved in DM helped me to make this place super organized!Ive got an in box for my mail,a file draw holder for impotent papers.I'm thinking of scanning most of them so I have a digital file of everything,even less clutter :)!I came home and paid most of my bills!I was able to order some ink jet cartridges,they are too expensive!I am really having fun running my life as challenging as it can be but the main thing is I CAN do it and do it well:)!


Lisa called asked if I'd go for a walk,Lisa walk,Jamie scoot!I said sure,I got my errands done at the hardware store,tennis balls and electrical tape.We were strolling down rt.37,Franklin st and Lisa said that cars were beeping and people were saying hi Jamie!With my hearing issues I never got to see who they were.Lisa said one was a blond :)!That's a good thing thou,I'm interested in Lisa and this makes me look popular :)!

change of plans

I'm not gonna go bowling now cause my foot got very uncomfortable as the day went on :(!I should take this opportunity to scoot to the hardware store and get some electrical tape and tennis balls for my walker!


No home visit from KJ today she was over on Monday!I am expecting Jan though :)!She said about 11 or 12 but,she is a pretty lady,I expect the ladies to be fashionably late!My 53 yrs of life experience :)!Then I'm going bowling and I'm meeting hics @ Boston bowl :)!


Hics was great today but if I try to remember what happened,I draw a blank!I do know we had regular groups aside from that Ozzi Guion just keeps on popping in my head!I guess we discussed his latest statements in current issues!I remember him as a great shortstop but,Ive lost all respect for him as a person!
   I'm not gonna go to the ymca tomorrow cause Jan is gonna come over @ 11-12!Then lata I'm gonna go directly to boston bowl to meet hics for a night of bowlng and dinna!The deadwood cafe has the bestest steak and cheese calzones,I'm  ready :)!


I had a change of plans.My foot is just causing me too much pain to workout today :(!I must scoot to the office today and get my rent payment all fixed!


Happy Easter,this marks the day that Jesus rose up from the ashes and granted everlasting life for those of us that have accepted him as our savior!Jan called this morning,shes gonna come up on Wednesday at about noon :)!


I was gonna go to stop and shop in Holbrook  today but I didn't feel like getting myself ready for my ride this morning.I'm thinking about doing peapod or trying food mart,Ive never done food mart before,they don't have a minimum purchase!I should wait untill my check comes though!

homemaker service

I got a voice mail from arcadia (co. providing homemaker service) that said the person supposed to come,can't today!I'm very dissatisfied with this!I'm wondering if all the agencies are as bad as this one,very frustrating!

4.6.12 afternoon

I had a great workout today,I worked with steve but I saw Molly :)!I also ran into KJ too,it was great to see with my own eyes,she is fine.Everyone I work with says I'm pushing alot of lbs on every machine!I can't seem to remember all the machines but on the leg press I think I do 12 reps of 260 lbs!I was told my homemaker would be here today!Its almost 5 pm now and nobody has shown!


Tomorrow Ive got trips booked to and from the ymca!I think Molly said to me on  Wednesday she would be working with me on Friday :)!Ive got a home visit from KJ on Monday!AS had to email me about it so I don't forget!Its not so much forgetting about it,its just me knowing its real!I tend to memorize something then wonder if its real!This way I know its gonna happen.We have to work on getting me registered on the IRS website!


I had a great day @ hics!We watched a documentary on adaptive technology for people with disabilities!I'm trying to get in touch with LB from spaulding rehab about being involved in a paid study about adaptive technology,Ive emailed and left a voice mail!Ive gutta start earning something cause I'm gonna start paying the IRS almost $400. a month!


Ive had a great workout so-far today except I think my sneakers irritate my corn on my right foot too much!My foot was hurting too much to go to hics tonight!Plus I've gutta rethink how I book my rides on Wednesdays!My return trip from the YMCA and my trip to hics were only 20 mins apart!Maybe I should go from the ymca to hics or just make my arrival time just a little bit later!Ill put some thought into this matter :)!
