chris's garden

I love to garden, and am out side on most days when I am not working, in it. I HATE winter!!! LOL

I also need to get my self back on track. some days I'm pretty good other days not so. I have some physical issues, but I am not in pain (thank God) so I am careful of what I can do, mostly low impact things are fine. So there are some things I will not do that cause undo stress on my body. It does not limit me for most part.

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands ...

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands yet. I look after my 80 year old mother. She is still very mobile and on her own. I work full time and part time, and am involved in various thing that keep me busy.

I am forever repairing or replacing things in my 85 year old house! I love to work with my power tools and do repairs around my house. All the doors and windows have been replaced, both baths have been replaced and are fairly new. replaced all flooring. Still needs siding, and walkway replaced.

So now I need to redo this body! So that it will serve me well, for many more years. I have been at it for awhile. I am determined, sometimes just not motivated! I need to do this, for me, because I AM worth it.

Thanks for all your kind comments on my blogs. I'm interested in hearing about your dental implant - I have one crown on a front tooth that I would love to end up with an implant eventually.

Thanks for your post on my blog. I, too, love to garden and have had joint & knee issues on and off. Hang in there, we can do this!

Sadly, talking to someone is *out of the question* (don't ask) - guess I'll once again just have to suck it up, put on the "big girl outfit" and deal - it's the same old demon smacking me in the face again, so I'm actually on "autopilot" and working to cope..........thank you for reading my blog and for your concern.......

Thanks for the note you left on my blog! I've been "wandering in the wilderness"...a lot the past two years since my Mom passed away. I took care of her the last few years of her life, on my off days and never moved myself into that self care spot. I'm working on it tho!

Blessings to you and yours~
