Yesterday we were still battling the rain, lots of it. I made myself go downstairs and ride the recumbent bike. Did 15 minutes and felt great. Went to grandparents' day about an hour away. Rain, rain and more rain. By the time I got back home I was out of the mood to do anything. My sister was arriving today and the house needed to be cleaned. It probably wouldn't have mattered much but outside of cleaning the bathrooms, I pretty much have left everything go. Today I wanted to do a walking DVD but because of my lack of motivation yesterday, I was unable to get it in. Busied myself all day with cleaning the house and getting things in order for my sister's visit. Whew! Made it just in time to shower and get to the airport. It was a large task for me to accomplish, my body seemed to be fighting every move. My back was aching, my knees hurt. I'm still alive and kicking, I actually feel pretty good. The best part, my sugars dropped from 216 this morning to 112 by dinnertime. Yay! I haven't seen a number like that since last year about this time. I'm feeling pretty good, but now it's late and I must get my beauty rest.

Yesterday was sunny and bright and I really felt motivated. Today, more rain. When will it ever stop. I saw that on cloudy and rainy days I'm really not motivated at all. Sunny days I want to sing and dance and get outdoors, or even get in my sewing room and be creative. We have been inundated with lots of rain. To the north of us there are families forced out of their homes because of flooding. Grandson, Joey, is supposed to have a soccer game later today, but we don't believe that is going to happen because they are trying to fight flooding of the soccer fields. I know it is a blessing from God that we receive all the rain, but sometimes it comes with a force that is hard to tolerate. We're expecting a beautiful day on Sunday. I will wait till then to mow the lawn. It's been a long time since I've mowed but I still feel it is too soon for Tom to do it. It's three months out from his surgery and not quite that since his blood clot. I'm dreading the mowing, it's been a while since I cut the grass, it was the last time Tom had surgery back in 2008. I used to love doing it when I was younger. My son-in-law would do it for me, if I asked, and I'm sure he will get upset with me, but I can handle this and I know I will feel better after doing it myself. I need to stop pampering myself and start moving.

It's been a couple of weeks since I posted a blog. Today, president's day, the boys came over to visit. How I love their visits. We get withdrawal when we don't see each other for a week. We went to Chuck E Cheese and had a great time. They came back to the house to hang out before dinner. Went to dinner. Blew the whole nutritional day, but that's okay. I've decided that it was more important to spend quality time with the boys than to be stressed over what I was going to eat. On the plus side I did get over 4000 steps in today.

It's been a while since I posted a blog. It's been a whirlwind seven months since my husband underwent emergency surgery for ruptured diverticulitis, then ultrasounds and tons of blood work to determine why his spleen was enlarged, vertigo and finally the reversal of his colostomy. Never knew I had to become a nurse, and worse of all, not get paid for it (ha! ha!). Now I am giving shots to the belly. He formed a blood clot after this last surgery and back in the hospital he went, the treatment is a filter to block the clot from getting to his heart and lungs, along with the shots for about five days and coumadin. Thank God, the doctor found it or my darling husband would not be with us.
Well, you can only imagine. Yes, I forgot about me. Hospital food, yuk! Not the healthiest eating habits in the past two weeks. I did try to get movement in by little things like parking further away and walking back and forth on the floor. While I was on a roll with tracking, it completely went by the wayside. My old habits came back. But I won't be defeated. I'm getting myself back on track. It's so hard, but I CAN DO IT. I Need to do it. I WILL DO IT! Staying positive is my best motivation.
