Yes, I have Singers.  I have a 15, a couple of 66s, some 99s, a 101, a  
115, a 127 (maybe 2 of them), two 201s, two 221s, two or three 301s, a  
couple of 401s, and an XL-6000.  Maybe a few more.  I remember I sold my  
9W1 but kept my Wheeler & Wilson No. 9.

I've got a Pfaff 1472 and a 130 and a 230.

Reno suits me - after some 45 years here.  ;-)  Took me a while at  
first, but now, I don't really want to be anywhere else.

I've been having a similar regimen for the last couple of years.  I  
have no idea (other than getting progressively older) what causes if.  
My routine seems to be: awaken, make breakfast, read the paper for a  
couple of hours, sleep for an hour or two, make lunch, check e-mail  
and newsgroups, sleep for a couple of hours, make dinner, watch the TV  
news, watch Jeopardy, sleep for a couple of hours, read a book, watch  
the late news, go to bed ...

I was having really disturbing dreams until the doc changed one of my  
meds.

Aside from mowing the lawn once a week, grocery shopping and short  
spurts of sewing, I don't seem to get much done.  All the stuff  
accumulated here over 40+ years needs sorting and disbursing, but I  
cannot work up the energy to do it.

I'm glad to know that I am not the only one who has more than 10 years of  
work to do in this house!  When I was working it was more than 8 hr. a day,  
plus all the usual things to do at home and the stuff in the house just  
piled up.  Then I took care of Mom for 4 years and for the past 4 years this  
diabetics has had me down and sleeping a lot.  Then I started going to a  
specialist and my meds were changed and after a year I am feeling better and  
I have good days when I can work in the house for more than 30 minutes a  
time.  At least my thinking is getting clearer, and I drive more now.   Sure  
hope you get to feeling better!

They should work overtime on those stem-cell carrying nanobots that can  
repair and replace body parts.  I'm certainly due for a 100,000 mile  
servicing.

It's nice to not worry overmuch about an odd sleep cycle.  I figure it  
comes with retirement, sort of a perk.  I've always hated living by a  
clock.  But I don't get much done, either.  If it isn't energy, it's  
some minor complaint or another.  At the moment, I'm relieved that the  
swelling has gone down a great deal -- not gone, especially in my left  
foot -- but less than before.  However, I'm having a bad bout of gout  
with that foot, and my right foot is put out due to overuse.  I'm  
hobbling around.  And it hurts.  A lot.  The pills don't last long  
enough, and I'm almost out of them, and it's the weekend, and I probably  
won't be able to get more until Tuesday, and I might just go cry for a  
while.  Not that it would help.

I need the diuretic to get rid of the water.  But diuretics tend to  
incite gout.  Talk about being between a rock and a hard place.

Meanwhile, three rooms are completely empty now and the floor people are  
coming Monday morning to start work to refinish and seal the hardwood  
floors.  It will be nice when it's done.  Doc says he's going to take a  
long time moving things back, and he's not going to move everything.  He  
wants a "minimalist" feel.  Whatever.  I don't have the energy to deal  
with it.

Since I'm taking all these pills, I've been avoiding any alcoholic  
drinks.  Maybe that's a mistake.  ;-)

Crying does help,

just not as much as pharmaceuticals.  :-(

Wonderful, I hope your floors are spectacular.  I had mine stained  
and refinished with Swedish Oil Finish 10 years ago, they still look  
great.

Not for me.  But that's OK.

Lasix doesn't cause gout the way my old diuretic did, so I'm told that  
when my footsies start to swell, I can pop a Lasix and hope for the  
best.  ;-)

They look fantastic, but we discovered yesterday that instead of the  
tung oil they told us they would put down, they used polyurethane  
instead.  I was not pleased.  DH was not pleased -- he's actually the  
one who spotted the can and thought to himself, "Tung oil does not end  
in 'thane'."  The man's not an English professor for nothing.  ;-)   But  
given that the only way to change now would be to resand, restain, and  
then finish, and it does look very good and will be easy to care for,  
we'll live with this.

Went to the doctor's office yesterday, reviewed all we've found, which  
turns out to be that I'm in really good shape (except for my shape, of  
course) for a septuagenarian and we've dealt successfully with the  
cellulitis, the swelling is almost gone, and I'll only need to go back  
if I get some injury to my feet or legs or if swelling isn't controlled  
by taking a Lasix for a day or two.

I certainly rely on that!  And will drink to it!

After I had mine, I suddenly had a much deeper appreciation for the  
effort put forth by that muscle.  :-}

Yikes.  I'm glad they squeezed and you didn't have to make an  
additional trip.  Nice of them!

Best wishes.  It's scary dealing with issues of the heart.  Most of  
our other organs (excepting the liver, pancreas and brain) have  
redundancies.

Did I ever thank you?  Well....consider it done.  I'm thinking that, if  
they don't manage to wipe out the human population and all the animals,  
and maybe the plant life first, in the next 100 to 200 years they will  
be able to replace any part except the brain - which if they replace  
that, they'll have to start over with a new person.  The future could be  
very exciting.
