Life Is Good!

Monday, February 01, 2010

How little it takes, to make me feel good
A phone call from a child, or two, or three
Knowing things are better, with them
Life is better, for me

Conversation, flowed, that is good
I felt a part of, again and always was
It was me, not them
It was only, less then a week

I smile as a learn new things, that has happened
I burst with pride, at hearing accomplishments
I know, all is well, and I love being
Mom and Grandma

Helpful Hints For Winter

Keep your headlights clear with car wax! Just wipe ordinary car wax on your headlights. It contains special water repellents that will prevent that messy mixture from accumulating on your lights - lasts 6 weeks.

Squeak-proof your wipers with rubbing alcohol! Wipe the wipers with a cloth saturated with rubbing alcohol or ammonia. This one trick can make badly streaking & squeaking wipers change to near perfect silence & clarity.

Ice-proof your windows with vinegar! Frost on it's way? Just fill a spray bottle with three parts vinegar to one part water & spritz it on all your windows at night. In the morning, they'll be clear of icy mess. Vinegar contains acetic acid, which raises the melting point of water---preventing water from freezing!

Prevent car doors from freezing shut with cooking spray! Spritz cooking oil on the rubber seals around car doors & rub it in with a paper towel. The cooking spray prevents water from melting into the rubber

Fog-proof your windshield with shaving cream! Spray some shaving cream on the inside of your windshield & wipe if off with paper towels. Shaving cream has many of the same ingredients found in commercial defoggers.

De-ice your lock in seconds with hand sanitizer! Just put some hand sanitizer gel on the key & the lock & the problems solved!

I am adding this warning***Make sure if you use hand sanitizer on young children they are not licking their hands or sucking on their fingers****
A hospital had a mysterious case and finally figured out this toddler was drunk and almost died from the amount of alcohol in his system. Hand Sanitizer is almost all alcohol.

Why Do We Let Things Bother Us, We Can't Change?

Friday, January 29, 2010

Dwell on and feel denied
Want and don't receive
Desire and refuted
Destined to Succeed

It matters not what bothers others
It can effect the outcome of me today
So need to set aside, immediately
Until, I can make a difference
If I ever can

Love I know I have
Cherished I know I am
Motherhood, is sometimes lonely
especially when they have flown the nest
and they want to do it themselves

When they need my advice
they will come
When they need my attention
they will call
When they remember me
I will feel comforted

I need to remember
this is there life
I lived my life, and
I promised myself I
would not try to live
there's too.

Life is Short
I will Fly
I will Soar
I will feel
Life is Good.

Sometimes, we need to get the words we feel out, so we can accept, where were at and this is what I'm doing today. I am here, where I need to be.

I hope your dealing with your day the way you need to, I am trying and I will

Realized Spark E-Mail is a Place I like to Go!

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Wow! It is so good to receive Spark e-mail. I realized just how much so, when I didn't get any in a couple of days. So Guess what I did!

I sent some out, I have to remember, I have to send out e-mails sometimes to have people know what I need or want from them. Or I just want to send one to someone new and not want anything, except for contact.

Some days seniors, only get contact through forums and message boards, unless they feel like reaching out for more, and some days, it seems to repetitive, to do, again, so don't.

I try to stay busy, but sometimes, I don't feel like doing anything in particular in the home, so I visit on my forums, for human contact. I'm sure we all have out days, when we just want to chat, and this must be one of them, at least right know is.

So Hello Friends and Friends to Be

I am fine, I am trying not to eat too early, already had my breakfast, did a desk workout, and am not hungry, but am Bored, oh my. Well hoping to hear from someone, when I check back, a little later. Remember the journey may be long for some of us, and short for others, but together we can complete it, it is easier, that way.

Hugs and Prayers from

    Linda, yes sending email often brings email. I like that too. This is a great community to get involved in. I am glad you are enjoying that. I like having others on the journey, sharing is a great part of this. It does make it lighter when sharing with others.
Take care and have a great day.

    Hi There!
It is good to reach out when you need it. Everyone gets busy with their lives but I know I will take a minute to respond when someone messages first.
Hope you have a good day!

I'm feeling Motivated, Today

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Just have to share, I feel like I am doing better this month emotionally, and I have gotten a few days of exercise in without excess pain this week, so that was great. I am talking it slow, a little bit at a time. and I feel okay with that.

I have increased my protein, by eating more egg whites (hard boiled eggs w/o yolks)
and this has helped if hunger hits.

I have found out recently, I can't eat much citrus fruit, because it causes me skin problems, and also make my skin peal, besides itch. I knew something was doing it, but I thought, it was fat rubbing against fat, but that isn't the case, I was healed and then bought citrus fruit this month and omg what a difference (Ouch) it made.

Of course, being penny pinching, and compulsive, I had to eat every piece, because I'm the only person here, most of the time, and I couldn't waste it.
I won't do this again, hopefully I will remember not to do it. lol (those senior moments)

Life is good, I am happy, I am content, and I am looking forward to each day as a new day with good progress coming out of it.

Is there music to exercise to on Sparks? Thanks

    Glad you are feeling motivated and that motivates me too. I can't do citrus either and I really like it. But it contributes to me getting fever blisters as does peanuts and another of my favorites in the form of peanut butter. Add chocolate to that list too. I think I have Senior Moments often when it comes to chocolate especailly.

    Good that you found out about the citrus fruit! Food allergies can affect us in so many ways. Now you can avoid them and hopefully your skin will heal again!
Glad you are feeling motivated!
I haven't found any music on this site yet...that would be a good addition!
