They feel just fine.



I went to the hospital yesterday to get my insoles and had decided to go to work after that but after walking around for a while in the city I realised it wouldn’t be such a great idea, I was exhausted after walking around for only a few minutes πŸ™‚ So I took a few photos with one of my old cameras, stopped by the supermarket to get some food for when I would start to feel better and drove home again. I came home just in time for the big farting afternoon πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚






That in itself wouldn’t have been any bigger problem at work but I realised I had to run to the bathroom every time it started πŸ™‚ It finally calmed down and this morning I felt really good so off I went to work. I bought some fresh pasta at the super market on my way home yesterday and when I came home I read on the package, made with 20% fresh eggs, so the 80% of the rest would then be old ones? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Of course I know that they had used egg powder but to be honest, did they think I would be impressed that they had any fresh eggs in it at all? I wasn’t, I need more than 20% to be impressed πŸ™‚

Back to the insoles, I asked if they thought I would get any problems by using them all the time already from the beginning but they said that these were made from a softer material so I shouldn’t feel any pain at all. My right foot shouted of joy as soon as I started using them but my left foot wasn’t as pleased. It screamed there’s a stone in the shoe! Remove it at once! but I refused and the foot did eventually get used to it even if it still isn’t shouting of joy πŸ™‚





So I’ve had them all day today and it feels really fine. It is tomorrow morning I hope that I’ll feel the big difference. It would be nice to be able to walk down the stairs without feeling that the feet might be broken πŸ™‚Β This is seen as an aid so the insoles didn’t cost anything, only what I paid to see the doctor, around $9 US. Well, the petrol I used to go to the hospital and back should be counted in to that cost but I’ll skip that πŸ™‚Β

It’s time to get something to eat, something light. I really don’t want to kick-start my stomach before I go to sleepΒ πŸ™‚

    Hi Christer,

    I have to see how Google translates “big farting afternoon”. πŸ˜€ Doesn’t sound good, anyway, so I hope it has improved.

    No, I couldn’t see the deer. I had to magnify the photo once to find it. I played that game in my yard the other day. There was a flash of white where there shouldn’t have been any white. After staring at the spot for quite awhile, a deer finally flicked an ear and revealed itself. Then the game was how many deer were there because I knew there had to be more than one. There were definitely two and possibly three. I guess they slept down there that night. They were probably gone in the morning. I say probably because you can be looking right at them and still not see them.

    If anything is going to shout for joy at insoles, it’s going to be the feet. The problem is knees and hips and they don’t start complaining until some time has passed. Keep an eye on that. I’m glad your insoles made at least one of your feet happy, though. Walking around on broken feet is very uncomfortable. πŸ™‚

    I spent this morning going to the doctor, waiting at the doctor, getting stabbed twice by the doctor because she can’t draw blood very well, driving to the blood draw lab so they could do it instead, waiting there, getting blood drawn quickly and painlessly by a student technician, driving home from the blood lab and FINALLY getting breakfast at 12:45 PM. And there were turkeys in the road to my house.

    It’s a cool and sunny day. Rain is forecast for tomorrow. I’m going to throw grass seed on the lawn and I don’t care if it’s too early. It’s leftover seed from last fall so no loss. πŸ™‚

    Enjoy the day.

    • Hi Caryn!

      It was a quite awful evening πŸ™‚ and yes it has improved totally πŸ™‚

      It was pure luck that I saw it, both Nova and Sune stared down into the bog but didn’t see it by their reactions. It was the whit that I recognised too πŸ™‚ They are really hard to see sometimes. I’m pretty sure this is the same couple I’ve seen close to my cottage.

      They told me that I most likely won’t getany problems because these were made from a softer material, the harder ones though is known for giving other problems. I won’t be able to feel any hip problems though since they already are metal πŸ™‚
      Yes it is rather uncomfortable to walk on broken feet πŸ™‚

      I’ve so far only met one person that had to stab me several times and still not gotten any blood πŸ™‚ She was so embarrased the poor girl, especially when another nurse came and was successful at the first try πŸ™‚

      I’ve always wanted to see wild turkeys but for that a long journey is needed. It’s not the same to see lots of them walking around in a turkey farm πŸ™‚

      This time should be perfect to toss grass seeds! They’ll germinate when it’s time. Good Luck!

      Have a great day!

    Hi Christer! I am late chiming in, yesterday was a day from h**l at work and I didn’t get home until after 7 p.m. I start at 6:45 a.m. so it was a long, ridiculous day. I hope your feet are feeling better each day! I have orthotics in a pair of my shoes and they do help. It takes awhile for the feet to get used to them for sure!! I hope your stomach is feeling better too! Nothing worse then a cheeky tummy! πŸ™‚ We have been having fantastic weather here – on Wednesday our winds go up to 90/kmh/hour. It was terrible. There was so much dust as we have had no rain so all windows were closed until the sun went down. To top it off it was 25 degrees out too. Very uncomfortable. We are supposed to get rain Sunday and Monday and much cooler. We will see. You know those predictions….. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Dianna!

      That was a long day!and when it’s a bad one it’s just awful. But oine tends to sleep well after a day like that πŸ™‚

      My left foot feel much better already but my right is still a bit cranky πŸ™‚ I did however notice that the pain goes away much faster so I have high hopes πŸ™‚ I can eat again but I think I could be used as a source for natural gas. I think that I at least can heat up one house the entire next winter πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      I’m glad we rarely have that strong winds here and together with warm weather and lots of dust in the wind must have been awful. I mean it’s those warm days we really want to open those windows πŸ™‚ It is rarely that dry here so we get that much dust in the air but it did happen a lot when I lived on the plains, most of the plains are fields and if a storm hit just after thay had plowed them on a dry spring we could have nasty sand storms πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ ‘

      Yes predictions πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Have a great day!
