Personal Information:
Hi, my name is Linda and live in Northern Ontario, near Sudbury . I'm 46 yrs old and married for 22 years to a hardworking husband. We have two wonderful daughters, ages 21 & 18.

Other Information:
Sharing a~ thought of the day~
"Always work from a list. When something new comes up, add it to the list before you do it. You can increase your productivity and output by 25% or more
about 2 hours a day from the first day that you being working consistently from a list. Make your list the night before the day ahead.
The more time you take to make written lists of everything you have to do,
in advance, the more effective and efficient you will be."

As a born scatterbrain who gets easily distracted...this is what I have to master in my daily life.

Thanks for the goodie! It has been one of those years, back in May I broke my ankle and was basically tied up until July, put on 20 lbs during that six week period. Then I started getting back on track and boy was it hard I seemed exhausted all the time and that is when my Dr. told me it takes only two weeks for your stamina to wilt away - now I knew that about muscles breaking down but I didn't realize stamina would do the same. So then this past weekend I moved the cat litter incorrectly and paid the price, Tuesday and Wednesday I ended up taking both the muscle relaxant and Vicodine and that knocked me flat, I was out like a light for almost 48 hours, hubby was a sweet heart and stayed home from work and took care of the kids, shuttled the little one to dance class and did all the parent/teacher conferences for me. Last night I started come out of the drug fog and this morning my pain level is back to its normal 6/10, it had gotten up to a level 9/10. So this morning the guys showed up to check out our heat pump, it didn't seem to be defrosting and we had several nights of freezing temps and the heat pump looked like a giant ice cube. Well the mother board was fried, but somehow, but the stroke of luck, Bill had a used mother board in his truck and put that into the heat pump. Our heat pump is 21 yrs old and Coleman no longer makes replacement parts for it. So we have been nursing this heat pump along and Allen called him to come check the heat pump and possible give us an idea of how much a replacement unit would run us through him. Well, Bill won't discuss a replacement unit until he can't fix it anymore (he was the one who orginally installed this unit) he loves this unit and can't believe the company discountiued making them. The newer units don't last as long. We have gotten really rough estimates of 5 to 6 thousand to replace what we have so, writing the check today for $450.00 seem real easy. So he thinks we are set for another 5 years easy, he just did a check up on a unit that is the same as ours and it is now 30 yrs old. The orginal lifespan of this unit was 15 yrs. So I am not complaining in the least bit and hopefully this is marking the start of good luck and things working in our favor for a change.

So you will have to send me an e-mail letting me know what is going on with you.

I am glad your are hanging in there, life can be challenging but remember we aren't given anything we can't handle. Its just a matter of balancing things. I hope things get better for your dad, I can understand how frustrating it is when a loved one doesn't continue with medication then ends up back in the same position they started in - just because they started to feel better and stopped taking the meds. Remember to carve yourself some quiet time every day to meditate and center yourself. If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of the loved ones in your life.

I am always here for you.

Hey - it was really good to hear from you. I figured you were probably wrapped up with the new job and family life. I know how choatic those can get. We had picked up a computer virus, so I was AOL for a while too. Finally had to wipe the hard drive and reload everything, which was a hassle.

Talk with you later, emoticon emoticon emoticon
