whew a wild 2 weeks.
had the family vacation at Heron Hill
hoping to find out more from the historical society in Ashland but haven't yet.
Then yesterday's reunion for the Frey side. lots of people, and the 2 last priests, one won't make it until next year. and the other is paralyzed from trying to work on the rectory himself. He fell off the roof. he should be more mobile next year, he hasn't had a lot of time to become accustomed to his chair. He has a fancy one that allows him to stand up.
We have decided not to sell the house. it will be alot of work, but I'm hoping to get things taken care of and then maintenance won't take as much time, energy and money!

hopefully a quieter end of the summer.
the diet is going ok, but I'm not being too strict, I feel littler but the scale is not moving.
I think I am going to get something to analyze my sleep. and then get a exercise bike to do sprinting, indoors. I'm hoping the one spark people has will do what I want. I don't want to have another site!

Happy sparking.

  


Grandbaby day

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

I got to spend the day with my granddaughter. and my son and DIL.
we had a fun day. we went to the zoo, they have new snow leopard cubs which were out when we got there. It was cloudy and even rained a little, but that just meant there were fewer people there, and they didn't come until we were ready to leave

unfortunately for the diet we had to eat out 2 times. once at an italian eatery that my DIL loves.
Amelia loves her wheat as well

then my son and DIL went to the baseball game, and I got to feed her junk (just crackers) and keep her up late. we had such fun.
I am already sad for when she will leave, but we get to see her again Friday before that.

and despite 2 salads and commercial dressing I only went over my calories and protein a tiny bit. I'll be really good today as we are going to "camping" and I am only cooking one meal.

happy sparking

garage sale was a moderate success, sold a couple of big things, a few small things but I still have a basement full of stuff.
I'll call Habitat for humanity on Monday to see if they would come and get this stuff.

Being on vacation this week hopefully I'll get some stuff done.

going to butcher for meat for a month!
and nursing service coming on Monday to assess DH.
he is sometimes accepting and sometimes argumentative.
but hopefully it works out.

Tuesday we are going to spend the day with my granddaughter. I'm trying to be a good MIL but I want to spend every minute they are here with them and her. sigh!

then we go camping with the family. will be a mess. but we've learned to ignore the lazies and do what we want.

I am going to stop at the historical society about the water pump on a trailer that I found in the barn. hopefully worth $400-500 so I can get $100-200 at the local antique store. We only have one that carries industrial type items. So it'll be them or I don't know what since it's so heavy.

I still have to get up and check on my application, to see if the vendor has done it's job. doesn't look like they have so far. ugh!

I am stalled, but I know I am not eating enough fat. and keeping track is too much for me right now. I was in ketosis when I checked friday night so I'm not too worried. and my jeans are a bit looser. it's and old scale that has a bit of rust on the bottom so I wonder if it is accurate at all.
Well enough complaining.

happy sparking!

another week gone

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Husband did come home, and in a much more compliant mood.
he only came home with one days worth of pills not taken, and one missing cup so I'm not sure if he took those or not.

there was no melt down by BIL when he came and dropped husband off and the tractor he wanted us to give him was gone. I also sold the brush hog for $350. not great but easy.

My weight has been pretty stable and I manged to get through my co workers retirement week without eating anything bad.

check for house is in the bank, will go see broker next week hopefully Monday but may be later.
My dad won't cash his check before July 7th I transferred the money out of my account so it doesn't get accidentally spent.
I paid the life insurance for the husband and started filling out the claim forms for the long term care rider. and I have to buy a riding lawn mower. will be putting the push mower back together and using it this weekend. the guy for the brush hogging hopefully will be here today. then we will have to mow everyday!
Still haven't heard from the contractor on the landscaping but I'm putting $300 a month away now.
Sorry for all the finances but I finally have 2 cents to rub together. Can't wait to go back to the butcher!

Happy Sparking

the next day

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

just for the record my husband came home and said "someone" is coming to get me "sometime" to take me fishing "I don't know" how long we will be gone.

too bad "someone" doesn't have a little common courtesy.

Good new I should be able to sell the brush hog for about $400 woo hoo. as long as Bernie doesn't give it away first. Bad news I may have to pay someone to take away the tractor and riding lawn mower. will have to do some more research.

Also I'm down another pound and I bought 3 steaks guess what I'll be having while he's gone for dinner! It's alot of protein but I don't care!

I am signing the closing papers for the house today! yeah! PNC still didn't respond to the title companies request for a payoff. So no check yet. PNC = worst bank ever!

Happy sparking!
