Was in the 50's today, to be 60 tomorrow. Nice weather through Monday before we drop into the cold again.  Nice Break.

Jim got his new dentures yesterday. Hope the non acrylic material they used this time does not cause an alergic reaction like the ones he got in the Fall did. Also hope he does not have to have them adjusted to many times before they fit good.  They look real good.

Winter marches on.

January 2015 is almost halfway over. Cold, cold cold. Jim had dr. appt today and I had mamogram. The wind was sharp. Supposed to be in the fifties for the weekend. Sounds nice.  It will break up the long cold winter.  February is the worst month of the year for me. To be the shortest month, it takes it so long to get over. March is sort of taking me over the hump, and April makes me believe in Spring again.

Jim has another dr. appt tomorrow. Meeting new heart dr.. I have lab. Have had no sweets since first of Jan, so am hoping my glucose reading is down from last time. Am down 5 pounds to maybe that will help.  It may not be where I want it, but have been eating more stuff like diabetics eat, so maybe it will be down by next time to normal. Do not want to become diabetic on top of all the other diseases I have. Want to just set on LGL in remission, and RA under control.  Then add to that I have to have teeth pulled and trying implants on bottom.  See how that goes. I guess there is always going to be something distasteful on the horizen. That appears to be life.  But I cannot complain as there are much worse off than me.

I am rambling because I want to keep up some semi regular blogging and not let months go by like in the past.

Hurry spring..............

Four days into the year, and I can tell this is not going to be a terrific year for some of our family.

It is cold and I hate that.  Jim is still in physical therapy and his back and legs are better if things keep improving. His lip surgery is about healed, and he needs to get new teeth, so maybe his deals will work out through the crappy winter months.

I have to get bottom teeth pulled and am going to try to get implants so they can snap in and out.  It sounds painful, takes 4 months to heal, and costs out the ass. So I am not looking forward to that. Just hope he can keep my top ones going for a year or so. But that is going to take me clear into spring.

Just found out my ex son in law is going to have to have some serious extensive jaw surgery, that will take a lengthy recovery. My granddaughter just got settled in San Diego this summer and a job she likes. But she will need to be back here for her Dad for a time. Sure she is stressed  out about how this will turn out.

So 2015, you better start showing us some good shit about this year before long.
