My accident being hit with a van

Thursday, August 01, 2013

It is one week from today that I was hit with a van I was knocked down to the ground, The lady was driving east and the sun was very blinding to her. She did not see me , sun was blinding her she sat still & was the reason I started walking and then first thing I know I was on the ground. I feel i was very lucky as my hardest thing to do is sit still & ice my left big toe & left ankle. I also have to wear a brace on my left foot until Saturday & hopefully that will be the end. I will be so Happy to be able to resume my walking. Also I am very thankful for my oldest daughter whom is so helpful to what I should do, I did have a exray of my left foot. So thankful for Nothing broke! emoticon

    Great to hear you are doing so well. You had to have an angel watching over you, because that could have been so serious. The good thing is time goes by quickly and you will be back up walking again before you know. Have a great week.

    Wowza! So sorry about your accident. People just don't always pay as much attention to what's around them as they should. Glad to hear you are recovering well!

My 82nd Birthday in Lakeland, Fl.

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Today is my 82nd Birthday & what a wonderful way to spend my day in sunny Fl. We have had fantastic weather. Today it is to rain but so far just sun shine. They need the rain here. Last night my sister-in=law arranged tickets for us, 2 Gilmore's, Melvin & Ann, at my oldest brother & wife's church dinner & a wonderful play they put on about the 50's! Was great!
So the same group will meet at noon for lunch! Boy is all this HARD on the waist line & keeping weight OFF!
We have almost 5 weeks left & that will go fast. Our Nancy will fly down March 26th & we plan to leave here Friday & arrive home on Easter day which our priest at home has a Sunday mass at 5 PM. Nancy will head back to Bartlett and her & hubby will be off for another drag race. They are having so much fun in their retirement days.
Have a great day. Anne emoticon

Back to WW Meetings

Monday, December 12, 2011

December 4, 2011 I rejoined weight watchers in Lakeland, Fl. I am a lifetime member but am overweight so I have to pay for my meetings until I get to my goal weight. I wish I had NEVER stopped going! I say right now I will never stop going again as when I am at my goal I do not have to pay. Only have to weigh in once a month at any weight watchers place. Today was my second time to weigh in & I was pleased. Last time I rejoined I could not get the point system down. It is much easier now & so far I feel SO satisfied with my meal & snacks.
Last year before our winter vacation I had gone to a Now Care clinic & got down where I wanted to be! Well that lasted thru my 4 months vacation but after I got home I could never control the gaining! So decided this winter I would rejoin. weight watchers My DH is such a dear & always encouraging me & wants me to be at my goal weigh. That is a GREAT HELP! I feel so much better when I am in control! I have a web site called e tool that I can track my foods, excercise & ect. so I will not be on Sparkpeople as much until I learn this other site as it really helps me. emoticon

    Not a bad idea to go back to what worked. I know you sure did good last winter, something worked.

Our 2 Wk. celebration of DH(82 & My 80th) Birthdays!

Sunday, February 27, 2011

DH b-day was 2-19-2011 & mine 2-24-2011. We both are fortunate to have them close together & fun to celebrate in Fl. In previous years DH was always had a big celebration! But this year I have NEVER had such a great celebration for both of us as this year! So my 80th will always be my favorite! My oldest brother (younger than I) & SIL has been spending 3 months near us & we have been having great memories of this year! 2-18 all four of us ate at a very good fish place walking distance from where we stay. After eating back to our place to play card (13) which they taught us & so much fun. They brought a small birthday cake for us for our desert before we played cards! I can not remember when I last had a birthday cake. (I sound like #2 daughter whom complained she was slighted ) Last eve they treated us with a lovely meal at their church (fund raiser) & then they put on a very good play! Very enjoyable! Their were 8 of us at the table. Another thing our step brother & wife came 0n the 23-25 which we played card & out to eat. That was a great thing & so much fun!
Today we went to the most beautiful campus " Southeastern University" in Lakeland, Fl. & had buffet (So much food all very good & college people so kind & friendly) it is a Christian college. It has been a big struggle fighting my weight this vacation but kept up my walking & going to Curves here. So it proves we CAN DO IT! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sure glad you had such a great birthday this year, sure wish we could have been there too. Always nice to be around friends.
Went to a lecture at Midway Village this PM with Larry and Jan Henert, you know how the GLBH loves those history lessons, has to drag me along. It was on the 100th, anniversary of building it. emoticon Ate at TGIF Fridays after lecture, pretty pricey but very good, have to splurge once in awhile.
Khristy got a new little puppy for her birthday so we went to see it, I think its on facebook if you want to see a picture.
Been busy doing computer work since coming home, too many projects going on I guess.
Have a great week. We are getting rain and thunder right now 30%

Love little brother

Our Four Month Vacation at Lakeland, Fl. Soon to END!

Friday, March 26, 2010

The time has gone so fast. DH had his last dental appointment this week & this morning back to MD for more prolo therapy shots (40). They seemed to have really helped his back problem, walking & standing problem. We have had a great time here with friends & somewhat warmer weather than home but has been very cool winter here & very unusual.
BIL & wife at Orlando this week. They were to our place Tuesday & this PM we meet them at Cracker Barrel for dinner at 4 PM. DH's cousin is also going to join us.
The strawberries have been great & right now so cheap! Can only eat so many!
We are anxious to get home & see family & friends there again. We each have more doctor appointments at home waiting for us. The older we get the more we need them. I sure wonder about this heath care that was passed will not be good for us older people & some Dr will be leaving I have heard. Just have to pray that all will work out! Ones I really feel sorry for are our grandchildren mainly even our children. We have a huge DEBT to pay off sometime! Where is the money coming from? The tax people. Anne

    Great to read your blog, for some reason I have not gotten it before. Glad shots are helping the BH, will help with the ride home. We too are looking forward to our AM breakfast April 7th. at the Pines at 8:30.
We went to the school play last night Calamity Jane, it was good, always like to support the school's.
Been trimming trees and fence row brush the last few days, sure have a pile of brush at Jeff's, will burn it some quite day.
Been in the high 40's with sun shinning.
GLBH is in her glory, flipping between the Bull's and college playoffs, will she ever get enough basketball? What a man has to put up with.LOL
Hope you have a great Palm Sunday. Shelly is having her new boy baptised tomorrow, then Linda is fixing the meal with a little help.
We will have another Sauk Valley Tea Party meeting Sun. night to finalize our April 15 th. tax day rally. It's to be held in Sterling at 5 PM.
Better go and calm down the GLBH, Bulls are up by 5 at the end of the first quarter, Miller made back to back 3's.

Love Little Brother Skeeter
