This week has flown by. Once again.
The new season of “Survivor” started tonight and Sunday night is the season opener of “The Amazing Race”.
TV is finally getting good again.
Kay, our hairdresser, began her treatments last week and is doing okay, but she more than likely wouldn’t tell us if she was just downright miserable. She’s pretty good at hiding it when she’s not feeling well.
Charlsie is doing really well. After her last stay in the hospital, she still was having some trouble with her blood pressure and we made her a doctor’s appointment (with a new doctor) and he seems to have gotten it under control for now at least. Since the blood pressure spikes seem to be what lands her back in the hospital, she is very relieved by the progress.
She went through the ice storm like a trooper. When we’d go by there or call her while the power was out, she’d say, “I’m doing just fine… under the circumstances.” I begged her to come stay with us after we got the generator going, but she wouldn’t hear of it. She has lived life “making due”. She would impress even Jeff Probst with her resilience.
We get so tickled at her.
She often gets phone calls from telemarketers and such. One day while we were there (when the power was out) she got a call from DirecTV (she has an antenna, no dish). The woman asked Charlsie how she was doing and Charlsie let her know that she was fine but we were in the middle of an ice storm and things were tough. The woman told her she was from Iowa and after Charlsie hung up the phone she said, “That woman was from Iow-AY! Why was she calling me all the way from Iow-AY?”
When I was there the other night, the phone rang again and it was an automated message regarding her auto warranty (she doesn’t even own a vehicle). She begins to inform them that she doesn’t even have a car all the while the recording continues to play. I don’t think she even realizes it’s a computer.
She just cracks me up! One of these days I’m going to do a post about her funny sayings. Everyone needs a Charlsie!!
Have a great Friday!!
