Wow, this has been a terrible week for me. I started on Friday April 25 with a few sniffles. I was looking forward to having our 5 year old granddaughter for the night on Saturday. This cold thought otherwise. It knocked me completely off my feet.
I wanted to go and support my "sisters" (former sister-in-laws still friends) in a celebration if life on Monday April 28 (my youngest daughters 40th birthday) for their sister who passed on April 23rd but I couldn't take the chance of anyone getting this cold from me.
On April 30 my grandson & his wife had their 3rd child a great-grand-son for us and I have only seen pics as I am still to sick to go near him.
Yesterday was the First Communication for my 8 year old granddaughter and you guessed it, I missed that too. I wish I could take some meds but with my liver problems that is out. I have been drinking hot water with lemon, oil of oregano in water and just plain water. I seem to be well flushed out but still keeping tissue companies in business. Tomorrow I will have to go and see my doctor and make sure I don't have any infection. What I wouldn't give for a Tylenol for this headache but in the long run I don't want to hurt my liver. I will keep drinking lots of water and hopefully will be back on my feet soon.
Enough wining I still have so much to be grateful for. Our new great-grandson is healthy and his momma is doing great!

  Its OK to whine a bit after all you have had to miss for this cold. I hope you feel better soon and get to hug all the grandbabies.

We had an awesome weekend. I can't believe that we were able to keep my daughter's Birthday Party a surprise right until she arrived at my youngest daughter's house on Saturday afternoon. We had about 40 people and I do believe everyone enjoyed themselves. We did it potluck as I feel this is the only way to be sure there is something that everyone can safely eat. With all the food allergies, diets, etc.. we don't want someone to go hungry. It is also cost effective.

My oldest daughter turned 50 today and we took her out to celebrate with a light brunch. It does not seem like 50 years ago that I gave birth to her. She is now the grandmother of 2 and another on the way.
I feel so Blessed to have my children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren in my life. They are all so special. Thanks to God they are all healthy too.

    Such a lot of good news! It was hard on my parents when I turned 50--but easier for them when the next three did so! emoticon

Busy again, August 21, 2013

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

It has been another busy week. I really don't mind when it is spent with my family.
Monday we took our cat Moe to the vet for his yearly visit and to update his needles. I like to keep on top of these things even though he is strictly a house cat.

When we got home from the vet's, I went to the Emergency Dept. at our hospital to sit with my granddaughter (grandson's wife) Thankfully everything was OK and I am happy that I was able to be there with her.

Yesterday we had our daughter's 3 kids. The 9 year old was not feeling to good and was sick 2 times. I felt so bad for him. He is feeling better today, just a bit tired.

Today was our big Costco trip. Even though we live fairly close, I don't like to go to often, too hard on the bank account!! I do like to stock up on a lot of the fruits & veggies that I can't get at the market. Shopping is done for the week. I did have to get extras because we will have the 3 grandkids again all day Friday, overnight then my older daughter will stay with them at their house until Sunday evening.

I better finish up my cleaning.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!


Aug 18, getting back on track.

I didn't realize how long it has been since I posted a blog. I have been going through some major emotional issues and didn't want to whine about them. I have started to have my panic attacks again. I haven't had this problem for quite a few years. It is so very stressful to be driving with my hubby beside me. It is like going for a drivers exam every time I get behind the wheel. He thinks this is funny but he is destroying all my confidence that took a long time and a lot of work to change. He is starting to realize that it is serious and I am hoping that he will just STOP. Today when I brought him home from Home Depot, I tried to move the mirror on his side and he was not too happy when I told him he didn't need it as I was the one driving.

A few weeks ago I was having some nausea and dizziness issues. When I went to my Dr he had some blood tests done and they showed that I was having diabetic issues. He asked me if I had changed my diet in any way and ordered more blood tests. Thankfully they came back normal. The Dr was shocked but for me, total relief.
My hubby has been going through some bad times with his brain injury and it is so hard for me some days. I talked to my Dr about it and requested that he refer me to a councillor. I went for the first time last week and it really helped to have someone to talk to. I will see her again in 3 weeks. That is a good thing.
Two weeks ago we also lost our beautiful cat Ozzie. He was fine on the Tuesday and playing with our grandkids. Later that night he seemed tired but no red flags. The next morning, my hubby found him at the bottom of our basement stairs. He had died in the night.
Our other cat Moe was devastated along with both of us. They were true brothers and had always been together. Moe walked around the house crying and looking for Ozzie. We decided to go to the Humane Society and get another cat right away. We brought home a sweet 2 year old boy and it took almost a week bit they are starting to play together. I think we did the right thing for Moe and Hunter needed a forever home.

I am trying to do some things just for me and get away from the house more. I will also keep doing something everyday on Sparkpeople. I need more contact with others and not just waiting until my hubby needs me to take him somewhere.

Enough now. All caught up and I WILL get back to being a strong person for myself!!
