A really short post, 3-17-24

I am soooo much better after an afternoon spent in my chair! chiropractor again tomorrow.

I have misplaced my phone since I got home. No, I can’t call it from Rick’s phone because it’s on silent for church. haha!

How’s that for the blog about nothing?

    If it is on vibrate you might still hear it at home if it is close. If you have an iPhone, I you find my phone.

  2. Susan K in Texas

    I do that too with my phone. Gary will offer to call it but it’s on silent. I usually find it someplace weird that I set it down while taking care of something else.
    I’m glad to hear you’re feeling better.

  3. Judy from Wisconsin

    Mary, so glad you’re feeling a little better. I just love the blog about nothing. You couldn’t make some of this up. I know the phone will show up soon.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Judy – well, that’s the truth, isn’t it? You just can’t make this stuff up.

  4. Jo in Wyoming

    Can you use your iPad to find it? I hope so, if not email me your number and I’ll call you.

    Glad that you are feeling better. Back issues can be debilitating. I have a monthly massage which I find helps me stay somewhat loose..

    A friend gave me a pattern for a small fanny pack bag to keep my phone close. She fell and luckily a neighbor saw her to get her up. She wears her ohon everywhere now.

    Continue to get better.

    Mary, I am so glad you are feeling better. I was worried as when I fell it was 3 days later that I felt all the effects from my fall, like rotor cup damage and then shingles even though I had shingle shots previous.
    Beautiful spring day. Hope you find your phone. Carolyn b Shenandoah Valley Va

    Hi Mary, l hope you have found your phone by now! How is your back? I have had a stressful time with the new tablet,apps in different places etc. My son video editing me ranting about messenger being hidden in a drawer and other problems! Then l started about slates at school, long drop toilets and my childhood! It’s a laugh but embarrassing! Not easy coping with the modern! My rant over?. TAKE care everyone, best wishes from sandy

    Isn’t there a way you can find your phone from another source? Not sure since I am techno dumb but there should be a way. Beats driving me nuts.
    I have never tried a chiropractor but people swear by them so hope you find relief.
    Baltimore is in full bloom but we might get flurries this week. Welcome to Baltimore weather. The apartment next door has a bedbug issue and so they have to spray our adjacent wall. I have to be out of my apartment for five hours. Oh and I have to have my cat out as well. Big Deal heaven YES. I can’t leave her in the apartment, I can’t have her in the carrier for five hours. So we are going to an empty apartment she and I four the time and they act it is a trip next door. I try to explain it isn’t an easy task but I definitely want sprayed so nothing moves into my apartment. Oh the joys of living in a retirement community.

  11. Margie from Ohio

    Oh Mary, I understand about losing your phone. I seem to do it all the time. I always find it, but it takes a bit. Hope you are feeling better. We had snow flurries off and on yesterday. The sun would come out for a bit and then it would snow. At one point there was a dusting of snow, then the sign would melt it. Glad I could stay inside.

  12. Donna Jo

    Mary you crack me up!😂 Glad you are feeling better! My BIL sent me the bracket for the NCAA tournament; no clue what I am doing. Sounds like a Dan job.☺️ Don’t overdo it today since you are feeling better.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Donna Jo – I’m going to print out a bracket, too – oh, you’ll think this is fun by the end! March Madness has been covered by every news program this morning. Too fun!

      1. Donna Jo

        I’m not sure what to expect. Glad you are feeling better. Looking forward to the next card recipient.

  13. Kathy in western NY

    I’d say you are the household where life is never dull. At least to us here it’s never the same thing every day. Glad to know you’ll wake up today not hurting too badly.

  14. Jill

    Good morning Mary! I enjoy your blog very much. I do try to comment but 9 times out of 10 I get the message that I already said that and my comment is deleted. I’m less techy than you but please know there is one person out there that enjoys reading your blog and all that you post but if it sounds too much like someone elses’, its deleted!

    Glad you are feeling a bit better.

  15. Janet S

    Mary, If I were you, I would ask Keeper to find my phone. This whole situation started with his being excited to see a new friend. Good luck and best wishes to Rick.

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Janet – yup, Keeper has been a player in this dilemma – he just wanted to see Hank and I’m sorry I just didn’t let him out to do that.

  16. Diane, Squeak, & Buddy in Central Ohio

    It is a relief to hear you are feeling some better. Good. It is 36* this AM and that will be the high for the day. I agree, try calling yours from Rick’s, you might be able to hear it vibrate. Did you know you can’t text with a bandaid on your thumb?😹😹. Of course, the other fingers work! Rest today, Mary.😍

  17. Rita in Iowa

    Mary S..t happens! Hope you find your phone! Iowa is once again cold this morning 19 out. I guess we have a few more days of March. Hope you continue to feel better. Maybe a sewing day.

  18. Rosalie

    Mary, you should be able to find it with the “Find my Phone “ app. I’ve lost mine in the pasture twice and at home. It’s like a gps to lead you to it
    I know you can ring it from the app but not sure if it will work on silent. I’ve also lost mine between the drivers seat and the console several times.

  19. Alice in SW Ohio

    Mary, so sorry about your accident, but glad You’re feeling some better. Hope you continue to heal & so glad nothing is broken! Saturday I bought Bentley a new bed. To relieve stress he licks his bed a lot!! I’ve washed the previous one repeatedly & was at the point it looked terrible! Couldn’t get the stains out. This dog does not like change!! He’s finally napping in it for short periods of time. And don’t move it to a different place, he’ll stand & glare at me!!

      1. Alice in SW Ohio

        Mary, yes change is harder & harder as we get older! Bless Bentley’s 14 yr old heart, he’s at least trying! Right now he’s snoring softly in the new bed!!

  20. Joy in NW Iowa

    Glad you r feeling better! Hope your pain is gone!
    Hank is so cute and he love is momma so much!
    Boy it is cold this morning! We are so spoiled! If it had been 20 below for a week, we would have thought yesterdays 30 was summer! Haha
    Mary be careful with your 75 yr old body, it’s the only one you have ….
    I have a king size and two twins to bind……. ….. bleh
    Next week I have to start dusting etc downstairs as the Michigan family is coming home for a visit during their spring break!! Yippee! Can hardly wait! I look forward to it sooo much and then, they come and whoosh the time they are here flies!
    Have a good day!

  21. Joy in NW Iowa

    Mary, maybe your phone is in the car?? Have you even told your hubby you can’t fine your phone, and he says,well, why don’t you use that one in your hand? 😂😂😂😂

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      Joy – I am ashamed to say that yes, I, too, have had the phone in my hand! Haha! But not this time. I wonder if it slipped out of my pocket while on the wilderness trail yesterday. Ugh. It’s a terrible feeling knowing I am so dependent on my phone. Thank goodness I have my IPad that texts.

  22. Helen Jane

    Hi Mary, Get well Wishes for you. Watching GMA and a Caitlin Clark sighting! Allow the bones a little rest.

  23. Shirley Andersen Smith

    Take it ez Mary. I have decided today
    that I need to give my hands a rest(boring) from handwork, sewing, yard work, phone, computer time. Too achey…will be back in touch soon. Dang.

    Hi Mary, so happy to hear that you’re feeling a little better! I’m sorry to hear that you lost your phone! I think you said you have an iPhone, correct? If you search on your iPad you will find directions on how to find your iPhone – the “Find My” is on the phone by default. So, unless you deleted it, you have it! I used something similar when I lost my Android phone. I could not believe it, I had left my phone at a client’s home and when I went online from my computer and followed the directions that I found there it actually has a map and the phone location is circled! My phone was around 15 miles away but there it was on the map! I hope you find yours! Jan in MA

  25. Pat in AZ

    Oh Mary! Your ongoing trials and tribulations must annoy the daylights out of you. I know they would me. I get pretty impatient with this getting old stuff.

    Glad you are somewhat better today and hope you find your phone

    Before my husband passed away, I was looking for my I-phone and he said “what’s that in your hand?” LOL!
    I sure do miss that man! I have called my phone from my landline so many times it’s unbelievable! If I’m sewing, it’s usually right next to me! Maybe you left it on the piano or organ at church! You’ll need to back track your movements. But going to “find my”
    app on your computer or I-pad may be able to assist you with finding it! Good luck!

    Neighbor asked if he could cut down the holly tree next to the property line. I agreed. He cut down the wisteria. It was getting ready to bloom. Last year it was loaded with beautiful yellow blossoms. I’m moving so I shouldn’t care but it turns out I do! 😠

    Good luck, Mary.
    Have a good week.
    Take care everyone

  27. Launa

    Nice news you’re doing better!, Mary! Getting older is better than the alternative! LOL Hope you find your phone!!
    Our pond is starting to thaw in the center and I can see the ground in places in the steep driveway! Am hoping for more snow by the weekend!

    Hope you found your phone by now, it is frustrating when we misplace items. I’ve been busy getting some house cleaning done, light fixtures, top of cabinets etc….. I hope to do some quilting my mid week. Made sloppy joes today so we will meals for a few days to come.
