I fell asleep to “The Watchmen” first the album “Brand New Day”

Then the album “Fast Forward & Rewind” it’s a double album “Fast Forward” is new music “Rewind” is a greatest hits album that I never listen to since I can listen to every album front to back.

Woke up to pee in the middle of the night crawled back into bed & listened to their album “Silent Radar” This album is one of my favourite albums of all time right up there with Foo Fighters “The Colour & The Shape”

I tried to exercised to “Barenaked Ladies” but there’s a storm here. It kept kicking me out of iTunes after 2 songs, I tried 5 times & gave up. I exercised in silence for the most part.

Having survived stage 4 brain cancer, I have to exercise if I’m not OK with the status quot When I do my exercise total at the end of the week that’s 5 days of exercising & I break down what amount of which exercises I’ve done each day. Getting back into my regular routine is much more difficult than I expected to be, but it’s getting very close & after a few weeks of it, I’ll likely add another exercise to it or increase the amount of one of the exercises. For that reason alone I have to exercise & hopefully get out of this wheelchair.

I don’t look at being in a wheelchair as a disability, I look to the pros of being in a wheelchair & having an eye patch. I get rock star parking, I always have a designated driver, & when I go out I get treated very well. Some stranger is always holding a door open for me & if someone makes a reservation at a restaurant & mentions a wheelchair seat, the place usually has a table available.

If I don’t exercise, it feels like a waste of a day. So I exercise a TON Monday-Friday. Those two weeks off with my back being screwed up, that was a waste of time for me. I don’t like sitting around & doing nothing all of the time! Weekends are fine but during the week people go to work so I might as well also work. What else do I have to do? Stuff around the house, take care of Brewster & exercise. Once I’ve exercised & finished a blog post I consider my day done & get to whatever else I can.

Life in a wheelchair could be MUCH worse. It’s not what Kim & I signed up for but we make it work. Once I’m comfortable & figure out how to do things easily at a public venue, I’m OK.

I fall on occasion & I’ve sort of figured out how to fall without really hurting myself. I know how to get back up & approach things differently so I don’t make the same mistake again. Sometimes it takes multiple efforts & failing at it, so I do most things different than others do, no big deal.

I also exercise to lose some weight. I went into the hospital with a 38” waist, now 38” are too small & 40” is too big? If you know of anyone that makes dress pants with a 39 15/32 “ waist, send them my way please?

Keep “diggin’ the hole” Trump!!!


Remember the horror movie “The Ring” with the video people watched then got a phone call saying they’ll die in the next 7days? There was a fly on the screen when they watched the video that turned out to be real. We have a fly in our house at the moment. It landed on the TV while I was here alone. I peed a bit & begged for the phone not to ring. It didn’t, I’m here, I’m alive.
