Good morning ya'll

Friday, March 20, 2009

Sorry if you missed me yesterday. I am having some computer snafu's,
it was taking on average, 3 to 4 minutes to open one message, and when
I deleted it was 6-7 minutes. The moral of this woeful tale?? we finally
both were knocked offline and neither of us could get back online. Gave
up and ran every cleanup we had. It seems a little better this morning, but
my poor computer is 5 years old, so I just hope she holds out til we get some
money to ahhhh (sssshhhhh) update w/a new one.

On the personal side, the wild spurt of spring fever that had me cleaning
a couple of days ago??? I have paid for that by being down in my back again.
I know I am going to have to go to the dr., but I hate to til I at least get at
least 5 pounds off. She was counseling me on the weight loss thing, and I
did well, for the couple months we could afford to go, but just don't have
the cash for that. However, now that I have decided to change drs. maybe
we can work that in to the session.

Until later, yall, we are heading out for a walk and to see if I can make it
around our little walking course. I checked it on the motorcycle, and it was
8/10's of a mile.
Blessings on all ya'll, and have a great Friday.

you really are not having too much fun with that back of yours D!! That really is a bummer about your computer. Glad it is up and running, it is funny just how much we depend on it huh. When I was in school the only computer we did was finding a library book. LOL Well happy healing! Have a great weekend

    Hey, Girlie,
Happy first day of Spring. My DD is trying to do some switching around with her drs too. Such a pain with or without insurance coverage b/c they only pay for certain things and make sure they put the right code number in to get it paid for. Now don't over do and have a great weekend...Karen (((HUGS))

    Was it good, did you enjoy yourself while you were out walking. I love to get out and walk, look at all the houses and the plants, say hello to people. It always makes me feel better, hope it did the same for you Darlene.

    We got up to 74 today a record for a long time. Our March has been unseasonable warm, but that's alright, we'll take it, cause it has been a really bad winter here. Ever since Nov. 11th.
Enjoy your walk, take in alot of fresh air.

Good Morning...

Monday, March 16, 2009

Good morning to all. I have worked through my blues and today
is "begin again" day. I joined a challenge on the walk with Leslie
group. Altho I can't afford any of her dvd's, LOL., we are challenged
to post some things we will do daily, and post daily. I think I will
weigh twice a week and quit the daily weigh because I just get down
when the scale doesn't move. With the Arthritis and Back problems,
this is going to be more of a challenge, but here is what I commited
12 cups of water daily, journal my calories(and Davids'), ride my
stationery bike for 30 minutes a day, walk as far as possible twice a
day and take vitamins and of course my prescribed Meds. Fact is, I
am going to take my Harley (this is a BIG SACRIFICE) and ride around
1-2-3-4- blocks and get the accurate mileage and cross check w/my
Thanks everyone who wrote. Your prayers and kind words saved me
from going deeper in the dumps.

    Good for you! Sometimes we just have to kick out the negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts. I, as a victim of depression, (take meds) know how hard this is. But you did the right thing by reaching out to those of us that care about you. We can do this together and we will! David too.. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am so thankful for all my friends here on Spark. Thanks to each
of you for your support. Sometimes it helps a lot just to read where
someone else thinks you aren't such a misfit and bum because I get
depressed and upset. Your prayers and gentle words helped me much
more than you will ever know.
I cannot seem to lose right now, dealing with financial messes and some
health problems, but I feel the love thru the lines and it makes me so
grateful and thankful for each of you.
I thank my God for each of you.
