Friday - the day is what you make it

Friday, April 19, 2013

And I am making it a good day. So there. No sun but so far no rain, think it is supposed to but that will bring more flowers. Have to think positive ! emoticon emoticon

Last night I slept well and woke up on my other side and thought OMG I didn't wake up to roll over or at least not enough that it hurt. WOW. that's been a long tme in coming! Also Allie came up at 6:20 and I told her to lay down, she checked hubby , then came back laid on the rug and I got up at 7:10!!! What a good girl! LOL

So today, I will get some groceries, get my craft table cleaned off, and ask hubby to put my sewing machine up as I can't lift it without pain. Then get my curtains made for kitchen and dining room. Not sure what else I will get done but more too.

Don't know if hubby and dad are going to the legion or not, but have some stuff out thawing in case they don't eat there and for lunch will be my huge salad. Feeling good about eating again, not bloated, and not heavy feeling.

Deleted the end of my blog cos figured it would make some comments and be taken the wrong way... just in case you read it and now don't see it. HUGS buddies!!! have a super day I am going to try hard even though my back is starting to bother me. Not stopping me for sure!

A really great day...

Thursday, April 18, 2013

I had a really good day today - we went out to lunch with our friends that we meet up with once a month. We have known them for 25 years or so and have such fun. Hopefully next week or week after I can go visit with our other friends on the other shore of NS. lol We haven't been down since they got their house and it is past time for a visit. Have to see as next week I have 4 apointments so may have to be after that.

Doing pretty good considering I have sat a lot today, pain but probably a 7 or so and mostly in my mid upper back and some in my R side. My walking is wonky cos I am stiff but will do my physio before bed and get hubby to stretch my shoulders and help press on my knee.

Well stir fry is done so going to enjoy my supper. ton of veggies and a sausage in it. Hubby has rice with his.

Hope you all had a great day. Me I am going to eat, then go walking with allie ( who must be tired as she wasn't underfoot while making supper and is now laying down on the couch ) and then get hubby to stretch me and go do my physio stuff. Maybe a sauna and then bath and go read.

Have a great evening all! HUGS

What didn't blog yesterday? Well here's Wednesday

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Had a good day today. Pain when I walked this morning, really gimpy. But we walked, then I got a bit done around, and had a shower and went to physio. What a workout, from 1:20 till 3. granted 15 ice, 10 heat but whew. She got me to do 2 more exercises and two were hard. One was the wobble board ( similar to the wave anjay) and then just stand with butt to wall and slide my leg out along wall about 3 inches and man that was hard for me. I was even sweating. Also take belt type item and pull my leg behind to my butt. also gave me one for my back after telling her I can't get down. whew but good.

Just finished making vanilla cake gluten free, will see how this went lol Have to get used to the diff textures of baked items, but smells good. Hope it is as want to share with our friends that we are going to meet, We have known them for years and it was her birthday yesterday so will take some if it is good.

Also have chili in the crockpot for overnight. Only made a small one as it will mostly be for me.

Okay off to get ready for bed. I didnt do my exercises as she said I had done plenty. Tomorrow as soon as I bring allie back I will get them done so I will ahve time before we go in the car, not sure if that was what happened on way to sil the other day or not, but don't want a repeat of that pain.

Night all and hugs!

Minimal pain Monday

Monday, April 15, 2013

First off I just can't imagine the day the boston people are having and all the marathoners from all over the world. My heart goes out to them all. I just can't imagine. Terrifies me.

So today went to the hospital for blood work, was an hr wait and then back to home, had gf breakfast and then off to massage. He did myofascial release and started on my upper back as told him I can't lay on my back without wicked pain trying to get my upper back and head down on the floor/table etc. So did this stretching that hubby can probably mimic at home to help me get looser for that. Then he started stretching my hips, knee omg I didnt know that it could move in so many ways. But felt good a few twinges. by the time he was done my back of my right knee almmost was on the table like my L - when he started he could put his fist between the table and the back of my knee!
It is 9 pm and still feeling good. I have a bit of tightness in my upper back but will stretch and that may be enough - going to go do my physio exercise now.

I hope I sleep better again, last night wasnt so grea, but was mostly hot flashes. Hubby said he hasnt slept well I think we are too hot, so taking the duvet off and just putting the quilt.

    I didn't sleep well last night either due to arthritis but plan on it tonight. At this time of year it's so hard to figure out what to put on the bed.

    A good night's sleep can make all the difference. Now, if we could just get rid of this cold, dark, wet, drizzly, grey, damp, rainy weather, we'd be all set! :)
