Again it has been a while since posting.
Time just gets away. It seems like I’m always working or waiting to go back to work. They have me scheduled for 21 hours. That’s 3 hours short of the required 24. Those hours are in the office, so the others are done on the decor team and those can be at any time or on any day. I never know when or where until the last minute. Any hours over the 3, go towards the 72 that I couldn’t work when I broke my arm last November. Not only the time goes by, but there doesn’t seem to be anything interesting to blog about.
Let’s see if I can come up with something……… Well, I did finally get a car, a 1999 Subaru Forester, however it sat for a few weeks while I tried to get insurance. Unfortunately, those accidents that I had with the 5th wheel back in 2012 were making it difficult. In addition to that my Physical Therapist didn’t think I was far enough along to drive yet. That has changed. I am now driving short distances to therapy, doctors’ visits and the store.
My range of motion has improved, although the best is when the PT moves it. Doing it on my own has a long way to go. I try to use it as much as possible, but I don’t have much strength in the hand or arm. The other thing that keeps me from blogging is the nerve issues since the surgery. The Radial nerve is affecting the thumb and the first and second fingers, with numbness, pins and needles and a burning sensation. It also makes it a bit challenging to type, although it is getting a little easier. What it all comes down to, is I do whatever I can as often as I can. It will slowly get better.
Oh yea, there was a Carnival on a Saturday that I had to work.
There were all kinds of adult games that the players would win carnival cash to use at the end for an auction. The most popular game was the horse races. That got really hectic, however the way that it was processed left a lot to be desired. In the long run everyone had fun and it gave me an additional 4 1/2 hours.
Another thing that I do in the office, that I enjoy, is creating more flyers and signs. There are so many activities and the coordinators sometimes need to post these things. Now that I have learned this program, I can add it onto my resume.
Last weekend my microwave died. Kyle, my next door neighbor who works at Superstition RV in Apache Junction took a look at it and found a loose wire. He put it back in the cabinet and during the week it died again, so I replaced it with one that is also a convection oven. Now I have to learn that part of it and I think that it will be covered by insurance less my deductible.
This afternoon there will be a Workampers’ potluck. I will bring a slow cooker full of meatballs with barbeque sauce and grape jelly. Yummy!!!
I guess that I will finish this, as the arm and hand is getting tired. I hope that you all are staying warm and enjoying this new year.
Thanks for visiting
