Prompt for the day: “These Horns Were Made for Tooting”

The daily prompt for the day reminded me of a song “These boots were made for walking…” but I digress.  In reality today’s prompt is “These Horns Were Made for Tooting“.  With a pounding migraine, please no loud horn playing at the moment!

Tried taking some more Ibuprofen, like when I took it earlier no effect!  Need to stop wasting both time and money on ineffective medicines.  Problem is stemming from extremely tight neck muscles, so technically it is not a migraine. That is why I have not tried taking any of my migraine medicine, Sumatriptan.  Why waste expensive drugs when the problem is not a true migraine?

My doctor is unable to prescribe muscle relaxants with out an actual office visit.  No longer able to drive, so actually visiting the doctor must be scheduled weeks in advance.  Gave up driving years ago before ever moving into the state of Minnesota back in 2008.  Knew back then I should not risk taking an innocent (if you can still find one) person’s life.

With my vision constantly going down hill, can no longer judge distances properly.  Found out recently there is a name for that, it is referred to as spatial vision problems.  Don’t care what it is called, it just sucks!  Have a wheelchair ramp leading out our back door, so I can get in and out of our house.   My husband caught me almost taking my wheelchair down the stairs that led off the ramp for the walking people of the world, he installed a rope that warns me where the steps start so I don’t fall off the ramp!

Leave it to me to try driving my manual wheelchair off my wheelchair ramp!  Who else could do something so stupid?  Just want to be able to climb a good tree occasionally.  Miss the old apple tree I used to climb when I was younger.


Set 3 goals for Blogging 201

We started our exciting excursion today into the WordPress class Blogging201.  Finished 101 earlier this year.  Have never taken any of their writing classes.  I might try writing 101 in the future.  Been successfully slaughtering the English language since I spoke my first words as an infant.

Our first assignment was to write down three goals we want to accomplish by finishing this course.  So here they are in the barest black and white.

My 3 goals are quite simple.
1: Help other people who are weakened, by either illness or old age.
2: Make a profit from blogging.
3: Protect children and animals from harm.

Numbers 1 & 3 come from my personal beliefs.  We should stand up for the underdogs in this world whenever and where ever  we can.  Number 2 just needs to be done to help support my family:  My husband, me, and a dorky cat we adopted from the humane society.

Need to start making money to justify the cost of hosting my own web presence on the internet.  Am starting to regret asking my husband to let me purchase an internet site for my own use.  Was told by the people I follow on blogs that having your own site was the way to profit from the internet.

My mother taught me not to believe everything I read in life.  Seems she was right once again!

Have to learn how to get my badge from the 101 class displayed on my site that I now own on the internet.  Have it proudly displayed on my WordPress site, but would like to be able to show it on my private site as well.  Wonder if any of my classmates have figured out how to move our badges onto other sites?  Will have to pursue this investigation further.

Curious as to what our assignment will be for tomorrow’s class.  What challenges will the present us with to try to confound our writing skills.  Mike skills need sharpening!
