Good morning everyone;
Had a nice evening. DS made a fire and dd and her hubby and I sat around it. dd toasted marshmallows and shared with the dog. lol DD got in trouble with mil so dd was a bit out of sorts. When dd and I came back from seeing her dad she was supposed to go see grandma;instead she went for a nap with the hubby. I knew what would happen but thought she's 29 years old, she should know how her grandma is and I was right. DD and her hubby went to visit grandma at 7 and grandma tore her a new one because she was out the door to go sit at the hospital so DD and her hubby came back here. I never said a word about it;she'll learn. either she will adjust to grandma's ways or she will not see grandma any more. time will tell. part of me feels mil was right on this one but I am keeping out of it.
So ds and I got left by the fire and watched the shooting stars - I saw a really big bright one. It was very nice. lots of small ones. I still was in bed by 11. Slept really well too. I do think it's because I think someone else will hear the phone so I'm not so tense. The oldest and his wife will be here around noon. I think they will leave tomorrow sometime. This will be interesting. lol By the week end my life should have gone back to being as it was before. As I said before, I'm not used to this busy of a house. it's tiring, especially when I am in no mood for cleaning and cooking. I find even making small talk challenging at times which is not usually a problem for me. Hubby wasn't the best company in the last few years but he was always here so it's a big change. I didn't encourage people to stop in for coffee because hubby didn't like it and now to be able to say sure come to the house if you like feels so strange.
GF messaged yesterday someone she befriended is in severe pain, doctors won't give her any opiods for pain relief, I suspect she was an addict but it isn't my concern. Anyway my friend is feeling sorry for this woman and asked if I would sell her some canninis oil for the pain;I normally don't have this kind of thing here but we tried it for hubby's pain and it didn't work so I did have a small vial. I told her to take it don't worry about paying for it;I sincerely hope it gives the woman some relief but if her problems are addiction related I don't think it will. My friend tries to help out the down and out people in our little town;takes them to appointments and checks on them to make sure they are ok. She is very kind but as we all know sometimes you get taken advantage of and I hate to say it, but I think this is one of those. That being said, it's good that there are still people out there looking out for others.
Well, I am making myself a coffee and sitting on the deck;it's high time I started appreciating life here too.
May we all have a wonderful day. emoticon

GS and I went out sky watching last evening right after dark. We stayed out an hour. They did say 12 to 5. Was hoping we could get lucky. Was up at 12:45 am and ask him if he wanted to go back out and he said no, probably wouldn't see anything

Hi Guys. I just can't seem to get motivated today. It's evening and I haven't done anything. I have a busy day tomorrow, so it's fine I'm relaxing.

@LADYLINDA1 thanks for the wedding pics, they're beautiful.

@LITTLEREDHEN8 I've been to jury duty a few times. The last time was so awful I cried in the bathroom for 40 mins before I left. Then on the way home, I had to pull over on the expressway. I couldn't even drive. It was about a girl who was brutally raped and the judge was a complete jerk. That was probably 5 or 6 years ago and I still can't think about it.

@LITTLEREDHEN8 I like to play Wordscape, Tetris, or Solitaire. Solitaire had helped me with nighttime eating I think. It seems to distract me.

Next Goal: To get below to 350 pounds. However, below 352 would be a 40 pound weight loss.

Legendis - O my! that sounds serious. I hope no one gets the virus. a lot of work for you. hope it doesn't play havoc with your pain issues.
Littleredhen8 - you made me laugh out loud with the
bearded lady comment;I often say that too. I get mine waxed now because my cataracts are making it hard to see to pluck them
The kids are spending another night so I will probably sleep well again. I really need that. I didn't realize how worn out I am until yesterday;just beat. like I told dd, we have always been very reclusive folks and ever since the last week in july my house has been one bee hive of activity - I am not used to it and it's wearing me down. I like the company but it's too many too often and with mil acting up it's just too much. The kids will go over to mil's later so I can get a reprieve. Had a nice visit with hubby;he wouldn't take the pain drugs today so he was good to visit with but the poor man is in pain. I told him it's ok to be loopy, I don't mind if the visit is short. I do mind that he's suffering needlessly. He told dd and me that he loves us both and he winked at dd. it was cute. He seemed hungry today - had ensure, boost and pudding. he usually only has one of those things and is full. When I worked in dietary the saying was when someone palliative is eating more than usual they are packing to go. This makes me wonder about dh.
Beelady56 - menu sounds delicious. I made potato salad for the mothers day BBQ and the birthday BBQ; it went over well. DS and I have had a few fires since dh is in the hospital. I can't seem to stay awake too long though. Maybe after all the stress is over I will be able to enjoy a starry night with the fire. That would be so nice. DS has even moved the fire pit close to the house so I won't fall or have too far to walk. Have had 2 invitations from 2 separate cousins to spend time at their lakeside cabins whenever I feel like it. DS would go right now if it were up to him. I said when it's all said and done I may just take them up on those offers just to escape you know who. ds can go fishing and I can veg. I thought of digging out the paint brushes but right now I just don't have the ambition.
took dd out for lunch at Boston Pizza so my meal plan sort of went out the window as well - the way I see it is, I am enjoying time with her today. I missed out on the wedding cake, I never touched a drop of alcohol at the wedding and I pretty much stuck to veg and salad so I think I deserve a day off. Might be a poor attitude but life is made to live not feel deprived. I can get back on the wagon tomorrow. I enjoyed our little outing - just the two of us on the patio.
Have a lovely evening gals.

@CROQUETCOURT Love your new hair style

Was busy today sterilizing Mom's place. One of my co-workers was around numerous people not social distancing or masked. He hasn't come down with virus but is in quarantine. The other people do have virus. I've started wearing shield and gloves to be around Mom. Had to get her place done first cos relatives coming in tomorrow to visit her

Still have my PT to get in today, but almost have my steps just from cleaning at Mom's and also at work

@BEELADY56 I haven't had potato salad in quite awhile. You always come up with great menus!

You are lucky to not have to color your hair! I always told dh that I wasn't going grey. It will depend on health and if I can do it etc.
It's bad enough worrying about plucking facial hair also. Don't want to be the bearded lady!!
Stayed in this afternoon because of heat.

Have a relaxing evening!

@LADYLINDA1 in a way I understand about mil, in another she should back off. I guess it's that how everything fits in thing again!
Dye doesn't hold on my greys long either. I have auburn hair. I'm not totally grey, so it blends in yet. I do it about once a month or longer. Being at home no one sees it.
A campout sounds nice. But if she washes like that. I wouldn't think dil would be into it.

Thinking of you!!!

good morning team;
I actually slept really well until leg cramps woke me this morning. took potassium and they left but by then I was wide awake. I think I slept better because I told the kids if they hear the phone in the night to please answer it - it might be the hospital. I worry I won't hear the phone and I don't sleep well. DD had a nice visit with her dad.the husband wasn't allowed in because he had a sore throat - he's a bit of a hypochondriac. Of course mil had to call and ask if we were all done visiting because every minute was precious and she needed to go - this was at 7 p.m. we were outside, the kids had a fire in the fire pit and we just sat around enjoying the quiet night;I went in early because I was tired - well guess who had been calling;she wanted to make sure the kids go see her before they go back and of course she had the full report on hubby.Nothing has changed from what I heard but of course she dramatizes it. I shouldn't have answered the phone. dd will go with me tomorrow and her hubby has to be checked for covid in the afternoon here in Humboldt so I'm not sure if they will stay another night or not. ds is enjoying the company which is nice to see. I don't drink so I never think to have alcoholic beverages in the house;yesterday I took ds to the board store and he got to pick out whatever he thought the 3 of them would like around the fire pit. he was excited! was cute. I thought it was going to cost me a lot - booze here is heavily taxed so very expensive - but I got away with $30. and the kids were enjoying the fire when I went to bed. at this time with things as they are it is so comforting to me to see that. My oldest called, after hes wifes family leaves they want to bring out their tent and camp in the yard for a few days. I said why not. it's a big acreage. they have been without a washing machine for a month now and finally it came in so dil should be happy now. she is so ocd she wears out a machine every 2 years! I have never in my life seen so much laundry for 4 adults! she washes absolutely everything every day - bedding, duvets, clothes and the kids change 3 or 4 times a day! crazy! but it's their life, I keep out of it.
Littleredhen8 - my natural color is a dark chestnut. I stopped coloring because my greys will not hold color so after getting it done it's back to salt and pepper in a week. I'm too lazy to color every week! I said they must have switched babies on me at the hospital when I had dd because she spends a lot of her time on make up and hair and nails. I never have. I almost fainted when I found out what a tube of lipstick costs now! I don't know how office gals can afford to look so nice! As far as the gain goes - it happens. with me it happens with salty things, carbs are a real bad one for me but if I get right back on track it's gone the next week. I think for me my age has slowed down the metabolism and weight gain comes way faster than a loss. DD noticed my loss right away when she walked through the door yesterday;she did the little squeaky squeal and patted my tummy and said, you don't have a gut any more mom. that felt pretty good to hear. We got this.
Beelady56 - have a good pantry day. be careful of the back. it is cool here this morning so I opened up the windows too. I'm expecting dd to come out and close them any time - it's chilly. lol looking forward to hearing about the menu this week.
Crouquetcourt - that is too bad they have a rule like that in place. Glad you found some bargains though. makes up for the disappointment of not staying in the pool.
Have had some co-workers text me wanting to be supportive. it's nice to know they care about me even after I have been retired for a while now. I told them I will try to make some time to have a visit after the kids go unless hubby passes, then I imagine it will be another whirlwind tour. one never knows what is in the good Lords plan.
thank you all for your kindness and friendship. looking forward to seeing what's going on in your lives. emoticon emoticon

I gained 5 lbs since last week! I ate too much of the pasta salad. I hope it's just water weight. This happens all the time.all the time the same 5 lbs.

Last week I decided to try a game app on phone. First time!! I tried several different types of word games. Deleted most. I just couldn't find what I wanted. Over the weekend I tried Scrabble Go. Never played even the real Scrabble. There was a game against computer called Zoey and I tried it. Easy version. I liked it. Played several games. She took a little time and used words I knew. Won and lost some. The next day I couldn't find computer version, it wanted me to play against real people. And ads popped up constantly.

So I decided to look for something similar and found Classic Words Free. You play against computer Droid. He uses big words I never even heard of and is fast answering, I sometimes take forever. BUT I win about half the time. I'm kind of addicted to it. Better than scrolling FB and seeing the same stuff all of the time.

Thought I would share with you about it. Do you play app games?

waiting for the kids. lol DS and I went to see hubby around noon. I helped him with some ice cream and some juice but he was pretty loopy. Kept falling asleep. The RN said he has been doing that all morning so my guess is he has had a lot of pain and he is heavily medicated. I'm ok with that,better that than he be lying there in pain. sil messaged about an hour ago. they are going straight to see hubby and then will come here. If he's like he was when I was there I don't imagine the kids will stay long but at least they went. To see him like this is hard. I wonder how long he can exist like this - maybe quite a while. I will keep going to see him until it's over. I'm not so sure he would have done that if it was me because he couldn't stand to see anything suffering but I feel if I get just 5 minutes of quality time it's worth it.
Littleredhen8 - DS surprised me that he wanted to go but I am happy he did. Even hubby like he is right now is a better memory than the last one ds had of him being loaded into an ambulance partly paralyzed and not able to talk. Right now he seems fine - no paralysis or slurred speech but this cancer causes strokes so you just never know what will happen. Thanks for the prayers and wonderful friendship. It gets me through some pretty bad times.
Croquetcourt - I love the new hair! it would have gone well with my wedding outfit. lol I wish I were as brave as you to try a color like that. I had to laugh yesterday when I went to see hubby the RN on duty was a gal I have known for over 30 years. I needed to add dd and her hubby to the visitors list. This gal looked me up and down and said "and who is the patient you wish to request visitors for?" I said the name and then she looked at me hard - we have masks on so it's really hard to see a persons face;she said "my God Linda! I didn't know you had grey hair!!" I laughed so hard I felt stupid standing in the palliative ward laughing but it was funny. The shock when she heard my husband was palliative was not funny though. I guess she was not on duty so she didn't know until I saw her. I imagine there will be a few people who will be shocked when the time comes. he's too young to have this happen.
Beelady56 - hope the chiropractor went well.It will come - hang in there. you are doing so well with your steps. I am truly amazed that I am doing as well as I am under all this stress - that's usually when I eat everything in sight but this time I don't even remember to eat! That isn't good either. So I am trying to be more on the ball with that. we have had a surge in covid cases so I have noticed more locals are wearing masks;I am doing the same. Always have been vigilant with the hand washing/sanitizing but don't like the masks. BUT - better a little paper one than a ventilator one. And thank you as well for the prayers and wonderful friendship. I sure lucked out when I found you guys. emoticon
To all of the team that is on the give it your all in August I am so happy to see so many on board. I like company. lol
Have a wonderful day everyone. emoticon

@LADYLINDA1 I'm glad you had a restful night!
Perhaps people don't think or maybe don't care when they ask the question or make comments. Maybe they don't know what to say.
I hope you all have a good visit today.

First time in ages I actually had a good sleep. I feel rested today. Good feeling. Not sure when dd and sil will be here. probably late afternoon but who knows. I would like to go my usual time to see hubby but I don't want too many visitors to be coming and going and exhaust him. I think that will have him leaving us sooner than later. Don't have anything planned today. It has been fall like weather here. very cold at night but sunny and fairly warm in the day. DS spent the evening watering his melons and my poor old lonely zucchini. lol apparently I have 2 little ones on and lots of blossoms. Cleaned the fridge this morning - it was pretty bad! I guess with everything going on here I have basically just been drop and go. so there were all kinds of things in there that should have been tossed in the first place. Someone told me when all of this began that I would get so sick and tired of the dumb questions people ask;well I can attest to that now. People must not think before they open their mouths. Some of it is just plain ignorant. So far I have managed to not lose my cool but as this goes by it gets harder. maybe I should refrain from going out in public for a while but I think that just makes it worse after the fact. So, another day here on the prairies.

Up Early going to the chiropractor in a while. It's still really humid out but I think it's going down tomorrow.. I have to pick up a pantry friend as she goes to see the chiro also and she will probably need to go to the store I will go in also
Other than that not much planned maybe get some more jobs done inside
A new week to get my plan right.. Im Continuing the steps flexibility Doc told me to do it does seem to help my eating is better tho I still have my times emoticon but I have lost some no complaints i think eventually I will have better control..
Lady Linda bless you . You are doing things how you should ! Where my cousin stayed they made rules on who can come in and how many.. her request as a friend came in and said negative things to her and she could no longer visit..
Blessings to all that your day is a beautiful one.. storms later here
I'm grateful to have this team.. emoticon emoticon

Littleredhen8 - when I saw hubby this morning he was a bit in pain I think. I asked him how he managed to get out of bed and fall with a catheter and an IV in place. He said Clumsy I guess. still has that dry sense of humor. lol
I didn't stay too long.He watched the wedding video and looked at a few pictures and I could tell he was hurting. I helped him with his soup and ensure and he wanted the juice they left but not any solid food. So I spoke with dietary and the RN and requested he get a liquid diet and juice more frequently. they were very compliant. When the RN came and gave him his pain medication I asked him if he wanted me to leave;he said I don't want to hurt you're feelings but yes. I'm tired. I said it was ok. but I started crying of course. He said I really wish you wouldn't do that. I said I know but it happens. He said his mother stays too long. I told him he has to tell her he's tired and she needs to leave. it will do no good if I tell her. she will call me a liar, her boy wouldn't tell her to leave. no he won't but he should.
Phoned her to say I had been to see him so she had the rest of the day to choose a time to go;I tried to tell her in a nice way that he needs to rest more. well, as I expected it got a bad response. She said she knew when he needed rest. I said after 88 years on the planet I sure hope she did because the man is tired. I don't know if that sunk in or not. I also told her the kids will be home to visit him tomorrow so she may not get to see him, well - that didn't go over well. So I tried a different tactic;I said I don't stay long - 45 minutes an hour at the most, he needs rest and it's selfish of me to not let the man rest. That got backlash as well. apparently that is not being selfish. hmmm... I guess there just is no winning with her. I wish the RN would tell her not to stay for hours on end. I guess because he's palliative they think his visitors know enough to go but this one doesn't get the message.
Beelady56 - I had that kind of relationship with my sister that passed;I think of her almost every day. She was a special soul as well. My husband has a lot of old coins as well. I know some are worth a lot but I have no idea how a person finds an honest coin dealer. they are to be left for the kids though. he also has stamps - another thing I know nothing about. The ring that dd got from her great grandma is gold with a fairly nice solitaire diamond in it; I told dd gold is almost $3000.00 an ounce now so that ring is worth a little bit of money. Don't loose it. She laughed. She liked the little trinket box that says memories are to share better than that ring. that little box was $10. I got conned into buying it by a gf selling Avon. when I asked her what I was going to do with a musical trinket box she said some day you will have a daughter to give it to on her wedding day. That was in 1984. I never met dh until 1986 and I certainly had no plans on having any more kids so when I found that while hunting for the solitaire I thought, well. this is the day for this to go too. I didn't want to take away from the ring so I just put the little box in the same bag with the ring box. DD opened it and wound it up and listened to the song;smiled from ear to ear and wanted to know about it. So I told her. I think that little music box meant more to her than the ring did. She never knew her great grandmother;her great grandmother saw her the Sunday after she was born and passed 2 days later. She was 91. DD has heard this story but I don't think she can really relate to it. Where as the little music box is something she can relate to. I will not share this with mil. She would never understand this. I was a bit miffed myself until I realized this. it isn't always about the money is it.
Thanks for all the nice compliments ladies. I am glad dh is still with us and every day is a gift I treasure.
Have a wonderful emoticon evening all. I hope to get a good nights rest.

@LADYLINDA1 beautiful pics. Your dd is tall like her GM! Glad everything turned out well! Why didn't all those young kids think about friending new family so everyone could see live wedding?
I'm glad dh didn't hurt himself! I hope mil isn't there every second. I personally wouldn't like that.

Thinking of you!

good morning everyone; thank you for all the prayers and kind thoughts. I was concerned that hubby might pass but he didn't;I had the phone number to call the ward and check on him which I did. Apparently his wife spent the afternoon with him. lol mil!! He had got out of bed and fallen, don't know if mil was there when that happened. But the call nurse said he was doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances.
The wedding went well;everyone looked beautiful.The grooms mom worked very hard to pull it off. I felt bad for her - I couldn't do much, the leg has been terrible. I watched myself walk down the aisle with dd and I look like an 80 year old!
They videoed it but there was a lack of communication and it only went out on the grooms fb page so a lot of my family couldn't see it because they are not on fb with the groom. DS posted it on dd's page but it was no longer live;they could see it though. For all the fuss my boys made about boycotting her wedding they sure enjoyed themselves. lol Came home in the rain; got home around 11 p.m. - was tired.
Littleredhen8 - I feel for you with that vertigo;I know what it's like for my sister and it is horrible. She falls a lot with hers and gets nauseous. They never did find out what is causing hers or have really done anything to help either. Maybe there isn't anything a person can do for it. I sure hope it clears up for you. Can't imagine being afraid to move because you don't know if it will be there - praying for you. Housework! I hate it! When I was searching for that ring I saw so many corners that need cleaning it made my head spin. This morning as I was making the bed I was thinking well, now I guess there are no excuses, hubby isn't here to sleep until noon so I better re-arrange this bedroom and clear out a lot of dusty old books and memorabilia from who knows where. He was a real hoarder so there's probably a truck load in that room alone! I can't bring myself to do it just yet but it will get done. My oldest and his wife were going to the badlands on a week holiday but now her family is coming so the trip got put on the back burner. he said they might come out and visit hubby if they are allowed to. DD & her husband are coming out Monday to see him.
Legendis - I only was served once and it was a high profile murder trial - they never picked me thank heavens.
Maranthas17 good morning
Beelady56 - I will look into that team. I think I only want to be on one for now though. I think if I spread myself too thin I don't get focused on my weight loss efforts enough;but I enjoy checking out others that are successful just to compare notes - it can be very helpful
here's a few wedding pics the girl in yellow is my grand daughter

@BEELADY56 It's hard for me to explain about my vertigo. I feel when I move my head after an episode that I feel slightly dizzy and worry it's coming again. It seems like it takes a couple of days to not feel foggy now and then, like having a cold. It's been a long time since I had it, but every morning before I moved around I would worry if I turned my head if it would happen again. I would have to worry about things I had planned etc, afraid I wouldn't be able to go to appointments etc.
Afraid to bird watch because of turning my head etc. Thanks for caring!

My house is definitely not neat. I've always been lazy about house work. Now it's hard to sweep because I have to hang onto walker for balance.

Enjoy your day!

@LEGENDIS sorry that you had a rough day!

Up early, had to go to bathroom. Always afraid to lay in bed in case vertigo kicks in when I turn a different way. Go decided to go out and check on meteorite showers. Well big puffy clouds and the moon light were problems. And that I was afraid to look up and get dizzy outside by myself didn't help. So I came back in. The said the best time was before sun rise. I'll have to check tonight since it's getting darker earlier. You are supposed to be able to see Neowise yet to the SW but after sunset, but figured that was a lost cause, couldn't see it when it was bright.

Evening everyone. It's been a rough 24 hrs. Got notice yesterday I had to go in for jury duty and started hyperventilating and had to call off sick last night. Finally was able to identify this afternoon just what my objection was to serving on a jury, which isn't something that's new. I refuse to judge people. I'll still have to go in later this month, but it's doubtful I'll be asked to sit on the panel when I won't say guilty or not guilty. And if I have to I'll be paid to sit there and abstain resulting in hung jury

Other than that I have been doing good. Mom hasn't fallen in a week. Been keeping up with PT and exercise. Yesterday's eating was atrocious but I'm back on track today

@BEELADY56, Jamie is totally inspiring. I love that girl. I didn't know she had a team though....

Next Goal: To get below to 350 pounds. However, below 352 would be a 40 pound weight loss.

Littleredhen8 - The wind howled all night;was hard to sleep. Kept expecting the phone to ring to say he was gone. I sure hope the vertigo stops. you have had quite a long time without them. Strange they came back now. As you say it might have been triggered by the eye test.
Beelady56 - I too enjoy my coffee but I'm no connoisseur. I don't care for really strong brew like Starbucks;prefer a medium roast. used to have to have cream and sugar but last November a friends hubby made fun of me and said it's not the coffee you like, it's the additives so I quit both - have had black ever since. only have cream in it if I have a fancy drink like the iced coffee. I too won't pay a lot for coffee.
I tried the matcha tea and didn't care for it. I like chai tea though. I find it hard to sit and hear people talking politics but I usually leave the restaurant. I have seen some pretty big scraps over politics through the years. Here in Canada I think the country is totally divided; my part of the country - the West hates our PM and the East loves him. The East has more population so they usually get more votes in than we do so they pretty much decide the fate of the country. I totally avoid turning on american politics. I really don't understand how Americans can think he's so wonderful-just saying. lol live and let live. Enjoy lunch with the ladies
Marantha17 - good your ankle is good enough to loose the crutches but be careful not to stress it too much and re-injure it. I have read IndyGirls blogs. She has been quite inspiring to me. the fact that she lost so much weight with all her personal issues is very inspiring to me. It says so much to human spirit; the struggle is real and we can overcome it. Keep up the good work.When the flax is in bloom, like in that picture, is my most favorite time to go crop checking. lol

Afraid to move my head today, don't want to set off another vertigo episode. I was hoping I was over them. This one was different in how it started though. Before I woke up with them.
It's horrible having to wonder if today will be a vertigo day.

Hope you have a great day!

Hi Ladies. Well I'm off crutches, thankfully! My ankle feels a bit weak but it's getting stronger. I spent the evening with my Folks. My Folks and I are very close. I also was able to get a few groceries. The prices have gone up so much. I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

@LADYLINDA1, I love the pic of the fields. That's so beautiful. Thank you for the words of encouragement.

@LITTLEREDHEN8, Have you read any of ~indygirl blogs? She's awesome. She lost over 230 pounds and started while in a wheelchair. She gives lots of tips.

@BEELADY56, matcha tea is something I've wanted to try for a while. Do you use teabags or loose tea?

Next Goal: To get below to 350 pounds. However, below 352 would be a 40 pound weight loss.

My coffee tonight was just strong coffee & evaporated milk ..I have a frother so I made,some foam for it and some cinnamon on top
I dont care for sweet coffee so eliminated that.. I also make matcha with some honey from my bees ((a green whole leaf tea)) like this with the froth looks like the $4.00 starbucks drink and matcha is very healthy usually I use almond milk and make just the froth with a couple spoons of 1/2&1/2 or evaporated milk not a huge amount of calories ..if I use almond milk for most of it emoticon there is no way this old girl will pay $4.00 for a coffee theres certain coffee places in the city and they have premium coffee for $2.25 for a large one just cream stop there when I go I am a coffee lover emoticon and conniseuier emoticon lol
Wow mil is mean spirited I figure you can be nice or not she is the not so nice result ..of determining her personality.. I figure just be nice no matter..what.. in my life
At the pantry today there was some old guys drinking coffee who was saying how great Trump is I just sat there and didnt get involved ..and listened what a bunch of bull they dont even know what they are talking about I'm glad I stayed out of it sometimes I I will say my piece .. but not today..🤗 ~~~it's not worth the effort~~~~ just let em go o😜

@LADYLINDA1 Wow your mil just won't stop! Why didn't she bring this up months ago or whenever the engagement was announced so your dh could have hand written the story out.
The vertigo/dizziness hit me twice today. First time I looked up to put dishes away. Then went out to bird watch hours later and looked down when it hit. I sat there for 1/2 an hour. Was thundering. I was worried about getting into the house. I said a prayer and made it in. Feeling ok now.
I don't know if those blinking lights for glaucoma testing could have set it off or not. It's been a very long time since I've had any problems.
I thought maybe the nurses were going to show your dh the wedding.. I guess they would be too busy.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Have a restful night.

oh ladies, I am beyond thankful for you all. And a candle lit for us is most certainly appreciated.
I went to see hubby this morning;he was alert and we actually had a nice chat but he got tired quickly so I didn't stay long. He is so weak he can't pull himself up into a sitting position. I set the bed so he was kind of sitting but he didn't like that. I wanted to call the nurse but he didn't want to so he went back to the lie down position. I had a lot of calls to make this morning with home care and all the various things that were being set in place to accommodate his staying at home.Right in the middle mil phones wanting to know what I did with hubby's grand mothers engagement ring. I was lost for words. I could not for the life of me remember any engagement ring other than my own. So needless to say I got called down and she said if she knew that I thought so little of that precious gift she would have kept it herself. After her yelling at me for quite some time I finally said well if I put it away there are only a couple of places I would put that kind of jewelry. I found it in my ring box that my wedding set came in. I have no recollection of putting it there. And absolutely no recall on the story behind it. She swears I was present when she gave it to hubby hoping to cheer him up. Anyway - the long and the short of it is this was hubby's dads mothers engagement ring and when she passed mil got it and she gave it to my husband to give to his daughter on her wedding day. So, after all the nasty things she said, when I phoned her to say I found it she had the gall to give me orders to get some nice stationery and write the story of the ring and take it to the hospital and get hubby to write it in his own hand writing! I told her that will not happen;hubby can sign his name and that's about it. he's too weak to do much more. So I printed the story out on nice stationery in a nice font off the computer and hubby signed 'love dad' and that's that.I'm glad she told me about the ring but why get so miserable about it. Like I would throw out a diamond solitaire ring! I have so much going on I can barely remember my own name so it's a bit unreasonable to expect me to be focusing on this kind of thing, but that's dear old mil.
Then she proceeded to say this live streaming was a bunch of hocus pocus that wouldn't work. why don't they just video it and then she can put it on her phone. So I said gs is videoing it onto my phone and if it's too difficult for her to figure out how to live stream we will show hubby the video Sunday when we go. I can see why people sell out and move away!
Beelady56 - yes your meal today did sound delicious. And keeping on with the steps emoticon I have found a cold brew coffee that I really like but it's high fat so maybe you don't want that. I can have it on keto. you take a nice clear glass or mug;fill about 1/3 of the glass with cold coffee that has been brewed really strong; sweeten however you like I use stevia, fill to 3/4 full with almond milk and fill the remainder with heavy cream. you can put ice in if you wish - I don't care for ice. stir and enjoy. it is really filling and sure hits the spot when I need something sweet.
Littleredhen8 - hope the vertigo doesn't last long. yes, it's a hard decision either way with the wedding. Hubby will be happy if he gets to see it. I wish I knew someone in the hospital that could take their phone in and let him see it but I don't. so he may have to wait until Sunday.
Trisham817 - yes, there are a lot of very diverse team members here;lots of good company.
have a great evening everyone.

Lady Linda I'm thinking of you...you for sure should go for yourself and everyone including hubby your grandson doesn't realize how hard it would be to cancel wedding prayersfor you, hubby and family there is nothing harder in life then you have the extra things to think about.. I'm proud to say you are my friend
Trisha M .. I feel so good being in the team! So non judgemental... really it is great to do 10-15 minute segments for exercise that is what I do.. I use the indoor bike to speed it up and the usual work I do pantry soup kitchen my flower. Garden I have to push myself like today when I got home and I did get my steps in 6000 steps for three weeks could never get that much all at once..together we can do this
Today I definitely got in to food at the pantry not much pulled pork but that Mac and cheese was so o. Good then Becky my friend made cookies and I ate two so we all have goof ups I will get myself in Gear
Will say prayers for all when I go to church early after watering plants. Tomorrow afternoon
Lady Linda a candle will be lit in honor of hubby and you

@TRISHAM817 not a dumb question at all. In fact they do reccommend breaking your exercise up into 10 minute or so segments so people get them in easier. Do you could t steps? They all add up!

@LITTLEREDHEN8 thank you so much!

I do have a question because I am not one that works out. I mean I am a walker. But when doing exercises is it ok in the beginning to do maybe 10-15 minutes a few times a day? I know that sounds stupid. But, I know I can do the work, I am able to do 10 to 15 minutes all the time at work with where I work.

Thanks for any and all help. :)

@LITTLEREDHEN8 I understand completely. I am a chatter myself and sometimes its hard for me to find people that I can connect with and trust. I work double shifts on Thursday's and Friday's so finding someone to chat with at 3 am really sucks... Always here for anyone if they need an ear.

@TRISHAM817 yes @LADYLINDA1 is going through a lot right now.
I like chatting in this type of forum so I don't have to repeat myself 20 times. I'm a pretty private person, so it's hard for me to share what little I do.
A storm is moving in. I'm having some vertigo problems today first in a very long time.

@LADYLINDA1 I dont know your story but from what I am ready as of today you are going through a lot of stuff yourself. Don't forget to take care of yourself. Thank you for all the positive words of encouragement.
@All I am happy to find a group that I feel like there is a closeness in. It is so hard to find people that understand what you are going through with out judging you for the small set backs. Some of the initals I think I am understanding but I may need to send you private messages for the shorthand.
I pray that everyone has a blessed and wonderful day!

@LADYLINDA1 I'm thinking of you!
You have been busy! The kids did the messenger thing with me when I was with my dh during hospital visits also. That's still how we mostly communicate!

I hope your ds isn't too upset with his sister. You can look at it from both points of view. And side on both. She's had to change so many things already. And her dad wants to have her happy.
That's great that someone is going to help with FaceTime to do wedding for dh!
I'm glad that you got a good rest last night!
We're here when you can talk!
Hugs!

good morning team;
Long day yesterday. Hospital called at 8 they needed me to come in to help with decisions. Hubby made those decisions pretty much on his own but maybe he felt he needed me to be there. We had a nice hour together;he actually talked about stuff that needed talking about - his funeral and the wedding. He said I have to go to the wedding because he is dieing and our daughter is starting a new life. He said "Linda she needs our support. She is starting a new chapter in her life and I want her to know I am sorry I couldn't be there."So now I will go because it means that much to him. He looked really good yesterday,they had him on oxygen and IV meds. He chose to go to palliative in Humboldt so last night he was transported there. he got the nurse to call me and tell me. His mother was actually fairly good about it all. I think she was annoyed because I never told her he was in hospital until I got home at 6 but I didn't see any need for her to know until after things were settled. I called her and told her he was in Humboldt and that today she can go visit in the afternoon, I will go in the morning. We can arrange to face time the ceremony so he can watch it from his bed. MIL isn't going to the wedding so she insisted ds come with me - he didn't want to. He still might not. it's up to him. He feels his sister shouldn't be getting married when her dad is dieing - I think it doesn't change the situation whether she calls the wedding off or gets married - her dad will die when it his is time;I hope not on her wedding day. This has happened so fast I haven't had time to really process it. I did have a good sleep last night. Woke up a couple of times couldn't figure out where hubby was;had to really think hard to even remember which hospital he is in. Strange but I guess these are normal reactions to all the sudden changes.
TrishaM817 - welcome back. This team is very supportive. Couldn't get any better in my opinion. Reach out here and someone will try to help you in whatever you need. Depression is a hard one - my hubby suffers from it. You are not alone. chair exercises are available right here on spark. there are quite a few different ones for different areas of the body. they can be modified as well. I personally think any kind of movement no matter how small is a successful thing to do. When a person has pain and limited mobility sometimes the simplest of things can not be done. start small, don't get discouraged and you will be surprised how simple little stretches can improve not only your physical being but your confidence in yourself and that will enable you to increase your movement and it all adds up to weight loss,better mobility and a healthy mindset. Don't rush it;take the time you need for you.
Littleredhen8 - my youngest brother kept me company via messenger yesterday. he sent pictures of all his market purchases;he got some pretty nice stuff. huge loaves of bread, jam, egg plant, tomatoes, celery, onions,cilantro, parsley and dill, new potatoes, zucchini and his friend baked him some cookies, brownies and oil infused with the cannabis my son grew for his wife. she finds it helpful for her pain, he finds it helps with sleep. He has lung damage so can't smoke the stuff but the baked goods works for him. his wife is vegan so they try to use home grown foods if they can find them so he frequents the local farmers markets and has a couple of local farms where they get eggs and dairy products. he finds some interesting stuff. it's fun to see what he finds. lol
Beelady56 - have a good pantry day. This last fall I realized I can not take care of him. it just wouldn't be the proper care he needs and I don't want our home turned into a hospital room. this is better for all of us. I am not one that likes to sit and wait for death;I hope when I am there we have some quality time. then I can go about my day in peace. mil can hover if she must.if she needs that it is ok with me. the oncologist that came to talk with us yesterday agreed with me that he may have a week left - if that and most of it will be heavily medicated to treat the bone cancer pain. I could not do that at home. my priority right now is that he has as much comfort as possible - minimum suffering even if that means he is pretty much out of it. I was told even with the covid restrictions I can come at any time and if I want I can stay over night with him. that was good to know. Day by day. With all the support from all of you and a few others in my life I will get through this. It isn't easy that's for sure but I'm not alone on this journey.
God bless all of you have a wonderful day

@TRISHAM817 Glad to see you back! I'm sorry to hear that you have been having problems! This is a very supportive and caring team if you need a place to chat vent share, whatever may help you. Just post and Some one will get with you.
I also was told I couldn't have surgery until I lost 100+ pounds of weight. I haven't lost any. I've gained because mobility got worse. And I keep eating. Don't give up! Quite a few on this team are doing great at losing, so something they have done could work for you!

I have been away from the site because I was loosing my battle with depression. I have finally had it with all the crap. I was working hard and not seeing any results. Today i received my new scale and I bought myself 2 4lb weights from 5 below plus a resistance band. I bought myself a note book to hold me accountable. I have no cartilage left in either of my knees, on top of that i have arthritis and bone spurs in them. I am looking at a double knee replacement however they will not do it until i loose at least 100 lbs. I am bound and determined to do this. I have an appointment with a dietitian on the 18th. As well as a pain specialist on the 25th. I am however looking for some sites that have exercises for someone that has limited mobility.If anyone has any thing helpful to add I could use all the support I can get. I am happy to see that there are people that actually post in the spark forums. I have tried many times to find a way to keep me accountable. I am also looking for someone that will be a texting buddy. if anyone is interested please feel free to send me an email.

@CROUQUETCOURT that's great that at least you were enjoying yourselves during the outage!
I just saw a commercial with balloons on it. Don't they do that kinda thing at wineries touring them etc? Weren't you one that wanted to try that? You will have to do some research.

Hi everybody! It is nice to be back in the 21st century with electricity, cell phones and functional plumbing. I have been living where I live for almost 3 years and this was at least the 18th outage! It was surprising that work had no power. The storm on Tues. knocked down so many trees and wires. Driving home was quite a challenge. I had to take an alternate route to work on Wed. because of a downed tree. Working in the office with no electricity or usable plumbing because the well is electric was interesting. At least it wasn't too hot. It was a happy moment when the power came back on last night at 9:30. My friends and I were having an extended Pandemic Blackout Cocktail Hour when it came on. We cheered very enthusiastically and apparently neighbors several buildings away heard us!

Ladylinda1 - My thoughts are with you and hubby.

Keep on Sparking! It works!

@LADYLINDA1 I'm so sorry you had to call 911 and dh is in hospital! I hope mil leaves you both alone. And so sorry this is happening over dd wedding time! She certainly must be at odds about everything also!

Thinking of you!

Glaucoma test turned out ok! The results showed I have a thick cornina. And that made a false pressure showing. So that put me in the normal pressure range with that deducted.
I still have macular degeneration though.
I did make an out of the way trip to the store to see if they hay any more chicken. But it was gone. It was a beautiful drive area though.
So not a complete lost.

Good morning all;
Well, it happened. hubby fell last night and got himself jammed in the shower stall - I have no idea how but he did. his legs and right arm wouldn't move. ds almost wrecked his back trying to lift him, dead weight. I told ds to leave him and I called 911. They had a hard time getting him loaded, he was dead weight, he seemed unable to even scoot his rear on the cot. By the time he was loaded and the ambulance left it was after 2 a.m. and of course I couldn't sleep even though I have had very little sleep because of his falls. So I must have gone into zombie land after 4 this morning;didn't hear the phone ringing so missed a call and don't know if it was information on him or what. Have tried calling back but they don't answer. I guess they will call me when they get to it. I know emergency is busy. I guess he will not be going to the wedding. I think he had another stroke or the spinal tumor is causing these stroke like symptoms so the outcome will be the same;he will be in hospital palliative for the duration of his time with us. I would be very surprised if they send him home and even if they do I now know I can not look after him. It's a tough one. I don't intend to tell mil until the decisions have been made and he is wherever he ends up. Now do I attend the wedding? I guess that will be decided as we go along. If he is still here on Saturday and he is stable I imagine mil will be hovering over him so in that case I will go to the wedding just for the service. DD needs family too.Hubby would prefer to be alone - I know him. But mil can't let go and that will be her issue to deal with. I hope his brother comes to deal with her. I dread the next days. she makes an already difficult situation even more so. Than heavens I did all the things I did yesterday;makes today so much easier.
Littleredhen8 - sounds like you had a wonderful market day. I look forward to the day I can get back to some semblance of normal in my life and enjoy the markets too. I was a cook and that mandolin was something I avoided;they are so sharp! they make a good job of fine cutting but they are dangerous.
Beelady56 - good for you - another loss! yay. perseverance pays off. emoticon keep up the good work
Croquetcourt - glad your internet and power are back. usually the phone isn't effected - must have been a real outage. not having bathroom facilities would be hard. at least out here there's the bush. lol
Have a good day everyone. Remember each day is a gift; appreciate it.

@BEELADY56 great job on losing #2! That's great! Pulled pork sounds great! Of course you have to do quality control on it! A bun would be nice, but you have to do what works for you. Also great job on your exercise!!

It seems I keep losing and gaining the same couple of pounds. I think great and then up goes the scale again.

I just cringe when I see a mandolin! Just you mentioning it, makes me cringe! My husband used them. I keep it wrapped up in a drawer. I hated having to wash them when he used them! They save time, but I just can't use them. Dumb I know. lol

It was supposed to be raining this morning, looks like by passing us. I'm glad since I have that appointment. Didn't want pouring down rain or storming when trying to walk with 2 canes getting into appointment. I think I'm taking my new walker. And then I can also sit on it. The chairs in the offices are too low for me.. I have to struggle sitting and then getting up when they call you in for appointment. I hate it. Sometimes I just stand, which is hard, to wait. Looks weird, but less painful.

Good morning friends, up early I have to make pulled pork for 25people or so the pork is all cooked from food rescue so an easy job.. for tomorrows meal.. emoticon
I lost 2#so happy about that it's a battle for me but I seem to be making new goals and making them a mindset.. I need to focus constantly today working outside yoga flexibility and going on the bike but keeping it around 6000 steps ..little red hen you got some bargains.. I have been lucky at the pantry I get all the veggies I want and they gave me some fully cooked chicken patties I have been enjoying also chicken strips cooked and marinated love that they are all cooked.. yesterday I made a dish with soba noodles I put shrimp in it. Lotz of veggies and spices I like to cook cherry tomatoes til they break open ((called blistered tomatoes)) the taste intensifies so good instead of a sauce just a touch of avocado oil it was fresh and good over did a bit on noodles tho but they tasted really good soba is buckwheat noodles if you haven't heard of them. They taste kind of nutty... Like me emoticon today I will probably have some pulled pork make sure it taste good for my pantry friends quality control you know.. probably no bun lotz of veggies cutting up cukes later for pantry I have a mandolins I use I have to be careful it is sharp some onions too then I let it soak in light salt water ..they are better for a salad so good with ranch sour cream may o dressing or vinegar tomorrow ranch cause they love ranch I love to grant food wishes there cause many only get a decent meal on Friday .. love them so much emoticon
Lost 2#yay!!! emoticon . Have a good day in your neck of the woods friends emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Found some good deals out running yesterday. 1st I got a smaller weled walker a normal size one. To be easier to load in car for use for longer walks into appointments. I have a large one for up to 500 lbs. It's great and nice, but it is considerably wider and of course heavier. Also scooter carrier is on back of car and I can't open the back hatch and it won't fit into side doors. So I wanted a walker that would fit in to side doors for easier access for me. The carrier is awkward and a little heavy so leave it on during F/F market season.

At Sharp Shopper and market, I got perdue whole chicken 2 packs for approx. $5.50. It was .49 cents a lb. 1 chicken usually is $7! I got 6 packs and I should have gotten it all! After eye appt. I might go back and see if there is any left! Also got peppers 4/1; cantaloupes $1 ea; plum 5/1; 5 lb bag LOL chunk cheese $10; 10 lb bags of pastas $5.69, Smithfield chunk ham 8 oz packs $1.19, got lots! Looks like we'll have pasta salad! We make a lot at 1 time. GS got a 5 lb bag of chicken fries for $8.
So had a pretty good shopping day! It's so nice when you can get some deals!

I have that eye test this morning. So have to run for that. I don't think it takes long, but the drive is 35 minutes one way.

Hope you have a good day!

it's been a very busy day today.
went to the funeral home and discussed planning a funeral. brought home a bunch of paperwork and information to fill out. Took almost 2 hours.
then home care stopped in with a wheel chair to use just in case OT can't get us one by Friday. I wasn't home so she left me a note saying she checked hubby's BP and it is back to normal so to continue with the new medication routine. She also got him to drink an ensure and a big glass of water. He is doing that as long as someone gives it to him but he won't get out of bed to do it himself.
OT came and she is looking into getting some things like tub chair and pole to assist getting out of bed but I said to maybe wait until next week to see if he will still be at home. No use getting a bunch of stuff in place and he goes into hospital.
Then decorated the wedding cake so now I'm done for the day. Feels good to have that cake done.

Lady Linda I understand how it feels ..praying .. I have been there. Never had multiple important things going on then tho emoticon emoticon emoticon
I think I'm just staying at 6000 steps as I over did it and felt it later adding more resistance band exercise and 2#wts..
Little Red Hen I'm a tough girl I think I can do more but I need to focus constantly.. when im lifting boxes if it its way heavy they will say heavy one.. and the man skips me and hands it to the next younger lady with out back problems. Sometimes I feel like I can move mountains it's then I have to focus and not be crazy! I have good times and not so good the arthritis is a pain ..in the ___ you know what emoticon
Legends hope you feel better soon
Peace and love enjoy the day as well as you can emoticon emoticon
Little Red Hen thanks for worrying about me I will be more careful emoticon

morning all;
Littleredhen8 - yes that's what I tried to explain - the flax is so beautiful in bloom, like a sea.
Enjoy your farmers market day
Hubby is really in bad shape. Last night was horrible. I'm afraid he was in so much pain I almost took him to the hospital. I am trying so hard to make his wish to be at the wedding happen but he can not continue this torture. Home care was here yesterday and he had a small stroke. he's very dehydrated and his blood pressure was extremely low so she called his doctor and they took away some medication so hopefully today will be better with his mobility. If he falls again I think I have to take him to hospital. This is so hard. Part of me wants to please him and another part doesn't want him to suffer. So hard.
Beelady56 - happy pantry day;be careful of your back too. Great menu for Friday. These days I could use your fabulous cooking skills - I just don't feel like cooking. 7000 steps emoticon you are doing great - keep it up but don't overdo it and hurt yourself.
legendis - you have some wonderful plans in place. enjoy.

I didn't get notifications of your posts yesterdays. Sorry. I just thought you were busy with things. I hate to be one of those people checking their phones all the time.

@LADYLINDA1 the fields are so pretty! Never thought they would look like that! What concern is it about the motel rooms? She isn't paying for it!

@BEELADY56 I worry about you doing all of the lifting! Good menu for Friday!

@LEGENDIS Sounds like some fun things to get out and do!

Going to F/F Market in a little bit. More later.

Evening everyone. I'm still plugging along. Keeping up with my PT. Getting ready for work. My 4-5 days a week work in May June I dropped to 3-4 for July and Aug. Going to drop it down to 2 or 3 days a work starting in Sept. Mom's doing ok. She fell a couple days ago but at least it was when she was weed eating and it had recently rained. Ground was soft and muddy so she wasn't hurt.

Going on a camping trip over Labor Day weekend. My nephew invited me along with my sister to go white water rafting with his friends. Robin and I agree we can't do the rafting but will enjoy camping and hiking. I believe we are going to the Gorge in WV.

Making plans to go to Tenn in October. Told my aunt Mom and I want to get away but not up to trip to the beach and don't have the money for it. We will visit her and also another aunt and another uncle

Rained on and off all day. Both times we had a rainbow but I didn't have my camera. Also was sitting on porch and hummingbird showed up and just sat on the railing. Didn't have camera for it either. It was a tiny one so just recently hatched

Littleredhen8 - it did rain over night and it's still dark so maybe we will get more;we need it. I haven't had the news on so I didn't realize there was a storm in your area. Been trying to just have peace and quiet. I know this week end is going to be a very stressful time for me so I need to relax now. Mil has already made an issue over hubby and I staying in a hotel for 2 nights;he needs to be home. well, the travelling is not easy on him either so it's better to rest in between rehearsal and the actual wedding and a handicap hotel room should be quite comfy. There's also the fact that my leg can't handle driving for too long any more but of course mil wouldn't think of that. So unless there is a change as in hubby has to go to hospital or passes we have the room for Friday/Saturday and if we don't use it Saturday and have to pay for it I really don't care. Worst case scenario - he can't go - then I will meet the future mil Friday and deliver the dress and cake and drive in on Saturday for the ceremony and come straight home. It's the only thing I can think of that one of my dd's parents will be there. She needs support too. No one knew this was going to happen. Bad timing as usual;hubby and I always had a little inside joke because he has always had very bad timing with everything. And when trying to find an address he was always turning one block too soon or one block too late. lol I have the cake baked so all I need to do is decorate it and that's not a huge thing. By the grace of God everything will work out well.
Beelady56 - wow! great mileage! Glad it's cooler in your area. Good job making healthy choices with the fridge. that can be so hard. DD brought home a huge zip lock bag of various candies and it has been sitting on the kitchen cupboard. Not a good idea when I'm so stressed out. I finally told ds to take them down stairs. out of sight out of mind. I have been so good all summer I'm afraid if I got into that candy it would start the mother of all binges! no thanks.
Maranthas17 - very creative way to exercise emoticon hope your back and ankle get better soon. I know exactly what you mean when you can't do the things you're used to. it does bother a person but remember - one day at a time. do what you can and the rest can wait.

@LADYLINDA1 That's too bad you didn't get any rain. I'm sure lots of people here on the East Coast would like to send you some of theirs today from the tropical storm. I'm on the edge supposed to get up to an inch. Who knows. But some are getting A LOT more.

Thinking of you!

@MARANATHAS17 That's great that you did some chair dancing! Hope you feel better soon!
I need to do some of your chair dancing! I just mainly move my feet and legs and throw arms around. That's movement, but I need to do more.

@CROQUETCOURT oh how I wish I were in the pool with you. I miss swimming so much. Before covid-19, I toured and decided to sign up at the YMCA. I was so excited. Well I don't know when they'll open again or when I would feel comfortable going. I'm so happy you were able to get a good workout in. I hope you're able to get another reservation.

Today, I did some dancing in a chair. It was nice to get some movement in. I really hope my ankle and back get better soon. I haven't been able to mow the lawn, pull weeds, or do the dishes. It makes me feel terrible when my house is tore up.

I hope everyone has a great Tuesday.

Next Goal: To get below to 350 pounds. However, below 352 would be a 40 pound weight loss.
