Need help

Sunday, August 01, 2010

August 1, 2010 Sunday

Well I had company last night and they left 2 AM, I was so exhausted to could hardly move. My throat was scratchy and I felt terrible. I took a cough medicine and went to bed. Woke up several times and by the time I got up I had a fever and really not good. I made some tea, took some aspirin, ate a cheese danish ,not good but no energy to bother. Started to watch the race and laid on the couch. Ate a honey wheat 1 slice with peanut butter and my home made grape jam for lunch Several glasses of juice and tomato soup for dinner and a couple of small peanut nut clusters. Not a good day for eating but this is the last thing I have to do on the spark point page and it is only 6:53 PM and I am going to stop. I can put the food , exercise, other on tomorrow because I am going to bed.

I know I am usually always trying to be positive but I am recognizing things that are happening and if tomorrow I am worst it means my hemoglobin is dropping and my body is not making red blood cells. I hope I am wrong but I know signs and I can't let my self get to bad because I have no one around me to help not that if things where different but they have there hands tied with illness in there homes. My dear friends I just ask you stay with me and pray and keep your loving post to me coming. I know people don't want to hear about peoples being sick continually and I am sorry that in last couple of blogs i have complained about exhaustion. I just want you to know if I am not in contact all of a sudden I will not be home but in the hospital. I will take my laptop with me and try and keep in contact but it will be have far this goes. God bless you all and stay tue to your goals. Love you all as God's brothers and sisters.

July 31, 2010 Saturday

Had little one over night and she at least slept late. She of course wanted to get in the pool but it was cold. You can walk down the steps, get out, walk down again and it will feel warm but it didn't. There was no way I was getting in and I wasn't going to let her get sick. We ate breakfast and then we worked on her school work and she did good. We went outside and checked out the garden and yard. I cleaned the kitchen from last night and I did 2 loads of laundry. Then we had lunch and she made it with my assistance. After lunch we checked the pool again and no go. The truck race came on and I watched that while doing house work. Time flew and it was dinner and I let her know after she could get in the pool because it was warm, outside was cooler but still 80 degrees. She helped make dinner and has learnt how to crack an egg, whisk scrambled eggs, make pancakes, and scrapple. I let her do it all and she has a lot of fun. Try to get mom and dad to let her do it.

She swam till 8 o'clock and I was wondering if mom was going to come or did she go to work. The Nationwide race was to be on at 8 but something else was on and it came on later. I cleaned the kitchen from dinner and was folding clothes and my daughter called and said she was coming out to swim with her husband and 2 others. Her and her husband came about 10:00 o'clock so it is another late night. Little one wanted to swim but parents said no, not a happy camper. She is out watching them. This is the last thing I have to get done before 12 back to the old time.

I am still tired, tomorrow is suppose to rain, I hope, so I can stay in, get things done inside
and no one will come to swim, does that sound bad. I need a rest, it would be okay if they would come and I didn't have to host. If they come I will do what I can, but I really need to rest.

I am going to take out some of the huckleberries and make some jam and see how it turns out. I have 4 bushes and if I can make pies or jam or something I will. I try anything once. My back and my exhaustion is keeping me from doing too many exercises but I will make up for it. Keep me in pray and I love you all.

Very full day

July 30, 2010 Friday
Little one came early which is not my cup of tea so we laid back down and she really sleeps.
We ate breakfast and cleaned and straighten things up as she has a lot of her stuff all over the house. We did some of her school work and then it was time for lunch and we had sandwiches, she was done hers and kept watching mine because she wanted it gone so we could go out and swim. We went out and stayed in the pool playing and floating around, it was warm but on the verge of cold. Not really that comfortable like it was the other week but I don't want those high temps either. I got out and started to put things way because it was getting close to the time her mom would be there. I let her swim another 1/2 hour and then she changed. It was after 5 and dogs had to be fed so she likes to do that and I went and started the water on the garden. Time went on and she was hungry so I gave her a couple crackers and cheese. Her mom called and said she was going to come and go swimming but first get some gas in the care and stop at the grocery store for dinner. It was 8 before she came and little one and I where hungry. I told her to swim and I would cook and it was the usual hamburgers and baked beans. At that point I didn't care because I don't wait till that time to eat. We ate and I had Chocolate fudge bars that i keep for little one for 1 of her snacks. She can choice between popcorn, fudge bar or cookies. Has to be different each night. she gets her fruits and veggies here too. She had 2 bunches of grapes off the vines and a cantaloupe/peach that isn't bad so I am going to make some preserves from them. They are about as big as a baseball and look like a cantaloupe inside, yellow smooth skin like a peach. They left about 10 and little one is spending the night. I had enough time to get done my spark points. So I will say goodnight and hope I have some energy tomorrow. Catch you tomorrow.

    Sounds like a busy day. Good job not getting stressed. I don't do well when my schedule is thrown off like that. I have got to learn better patience. Enjoy your weekend.

Tired out

Thursday, July 29, 2010

July 29, 2010 Thursday

Little was picked up and we had Grilled cheese and tomato soup at her request. I wanted her to do some paper work and she wasn't happy. She wanted to swim but they where calling for thunderstorms and I sure didn't want to get everything out, in the pool and have to jump out. I tried to explain and tried to get her to do some things but that cloud came over her face and I knew there was no reasoning. She was tired and there was no getting around that. So we both laid down. The thunderstorms came and I thought they where going to explode the house. All noise and no rain. I got up and cleaned the kitchen and just before her mother came I got her up. She was dead to the world and much better after she sleep for a few hours. She did her paper work no problem and we did a few things and her mom came. Little one went out to the garden and found some strawberries and grapes, So she will have the strawberries on her cereal tomorrow because she comes early. I made a quick dinner and had trouble with the laptop and it took about an hour to get it to come back on. They are great but can be a real pain too.

Have to get some energy because mine has gone south, I am feeling exhausted all the time. I think the leukemia is trying to start up again but I won't let it. Keep me in your prays and have a beautiful Friday. Catch you tomorrow.

    Grilled cheese and tomato soup - great childhood memories!

My little kiddo likes it too and I love making it for him because it reminds me of my childhood and my mom.

Happy Day

July 28, 2010 Wednesday

Today I picked up little one and we had lunch, tuna sandwich on honey wheat and then went out to the pool and played for about 3 hours. I had to stop several times because my back was hurting a lot probably from all I did yesterday. I got out of the pool and let her play and sat down till i had to get her out. I went and watered the new plants I put out and there where 24 of them. She got out, we walked around the garden, yard to the grapes, pears and she had 2 bunches of grapes to eat. I have 4 different kinds of grapes and i just put in concord grapes last year and 1 of the bunches was the concord and they where good. We went back to the house and changed and her mother came. She fed the dogs and we sat and talked. I had made cole slaw Monday and I had little one try it with her eyes closed. She doesn't like carrots and they where in it. She liked it and i showed her mother how much I put in it and I put it in a smaller container. My daughter thought I had put it there for her so I gave it to her. I had some in a small dish and was eating it and little one picked it up and walked in the other room and ate it. Okay I was eating it and she does that a lot. Oh well only young once. After they left I was hungry so I made a honey wheat sandwich with lettuce , tomato, onion, cheese and the rest of the tuna which was very little, a taste. That was enough but I had a small dish of butter pecan ice cream and that was it for today.

I have come back down to 141 and I will probably loose more when I weigh in Monday. No lower than 138 because that will be too much. As i said I am not here for weigh lose but maintaining and changing to healthy eating and exercising. I do my best but some days are hard with the back. To be young again and know what I know now what a life I could have. So i can't go back, so i just go forward and make this life as fun as i can.

Well, I promised to get in bed early since I am exhausted and have to do it all over tomorrow. Looked at the grass and since I didn't cut it real short next week again after the rain.

Have a beautiful day and enjoy yourselves. Catch you tomorrow.
