My new doctor

Friday, April 15, 2011

Well, yesterday I saw my new doctor and he has given me a prescription for one pill to replace 2 pills I was previously taking. I am excited to try this and hope it works. For one thing, it will simplify things to take one pill in the morning. And then, one of the pills I have been taking is the one with side effects of weight gain and constipation! So now I can visuzalize myself with the pounds just dropping off!! Nice vision! We will see!

People have asked me about my beautiful pink flowers on my start page. They are azaleas that bloom in my back yard in the spring. Sadly they have gone but they only fare well in warmer climates so if you live in Minnesota, you probably dont 'have any. We had some other beautiful ones as well that were red.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow so I can sew all day! Tonight there is a Tea Party meeting that we may attend. I dislike the current goings on in Washington so much that I feel we need to participate in anything that will make changes! Later.

    My husband says all we have is bills and pills at our age. LOL
At least you are down one.

    My fingers are crossed that the newer pill works better than the old ones did - and I'm with you re taking one is easier than taking two, lol...

    I hope the change in meds give you the results you want. Medications play such a big role in our weight the older we get and the more we have to take.

I am so looking forward to the weekend as I am planning a day of cutting, sewing and quilting! That is so relaxing for me! Hubby has a funeral planned so I can do that. He is looking forward to his new job! I need a massage badly so maybe I can schedule one of those as well. Today I see my new psychiatrist so we will see how that goes. I thought I could get off some meds but the last couple of weeks has shown me that I cannot. I need to maintain my health on an even keel. Still no progress in weight loss but I am not eating between meals and eating sensibly. That is all I can do . Later.

    Praying that each and every day gets better for you and praying for wisdom for your P-doc in treating you.

    I was just thinking about 'inner serenity,' and I figure whatever it takes (I admit, a massage sounds good to me, lol) is important. Sounds as tho you are doing what you need to do for YOU!

I'm stressed out, all tied up in a knot. It is due to a lot of factors I guess. Changes around here, having hubby around all day. The weekend off was a joke, riding in a car for 2 days and sitting in a chair listening to singers for a full day. I've been busy with appointments but can't seem to close any. Too many hanging and I guess after the home show, I got shoppers and not buyers. This to will pass. Tomorrow I see my new psychiatrist so we'll see how that goes. I've had a headache over my right eye and my neck is stiff and I need a haircut and a pedicure. There is stuff piled on my desk and I can't concentrate to take care of it. Just not prepared.
Had a nice talk with my oldest son yesterday. He is leaving his job on May 13th to go into training to become and EMT. He is excited about it and I am happy he has made this decision. HOwever, I keep thinking we are going to have to help them out financially and since my husband isn't working now, you know how that feels. Hubby is going to work for the local funeral home part time. Greeting families and mourners, occasionally driving the hearse, picking up packages from the airport, etfc. I think he is looking forward to it. It will be part time we think to give him something to do. Probably more than he anticipated. And his social security starts next week and he is going to deliver a paper twice a month so we are okay.
Glad I'm getting this off my chest. Later.

    I know just what you mean. We are talking about putting together a 'patchwork' of income to supplement the retirement. If the pension covers the basics, then anything else is icing on the cake. so fingers crossed, there will be extra from time to time for those little luxuries...

It is the start of the second week of Hubby's "retirement" from the Chamber of Commerce and I just have to get back to work myself. We drove to Orlando and back (8 hours each way) and I sat for 2 days listening to at least 900 barbershop tunes and singers! By the end of Saturday night, I was sung out! Thank goodness each group or quartet only sings 2 songs. Some of them are REALLY good and some are okay. Our group did not do as well as last year but we still had a good time. Three days of not moving at all puts a crimp in your legs and butt. We did not eat but 2 meals each day but I managed to put on a few pounds I didn't need. Ate too much at each meal I guess so it is back to the grind. So discouraging.

We stopped to gas up on the way back and there was fresh grapefruit available. I bought two and just ate one half. How juicy and delicious! My van is currently at the shop getting a new part for the air conditioner. Must have hit a rock and all the freon leaked out. I threw on some clothes to go get my husband and put on a pair of capris jeans that the zipper is broken on. No bra, t-shirt and zipper won't stay up. Belly doesn't help. Cute.

Well it's off to my day and week. Have a busy one. I miss quilting. I also crochet and I can do that in the car. I have an afghan about 2/3 done and it will be quite pretty. I don't usually work on it unless we are riding somewhere. Later.

    Crocheting to pass the time as you ride in the car is a good idea - and I can see it would be a lot more portable than quilting, lol...

A Whirlwind Day!

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Yesterday was extremely busy and my husband already has 3 part-time job offers. He has accepted two. He has had so many phone calls from friends who are shocked at the situaiton so he is very happy about that! We are not depressed and my business is picking up so things are fine. Yesterday I had a window treatment appointment with a woman I had seen 20 years ago. At that time, they did not purchase the treatments because they felt they did not have the money. I was pleased that she called me back and hope to be able to satisfy her this time.
Friday, we are going out of town to Orlando to the Florida Barbershop Convention. Always a fun time. Hubby won't have to worry about taking the day off! Me either! April is a whirlwind and May is my annual decorating convention in Phoenix Arizona. Hubby is flying out on the last day and we are spending four nights in nearby Sedona and plan to take a train to the Grand Canyon! Should be fun! Later.

    Wow, the Grand Canyon trip sounds really great! I think some of the Turtles live in / near Phoenix - wonder if you could meet up with any of them?
