Happy - sad day

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Mum would have been 87 today but instead we just wished her a happy birthday on our own. I miss her so much but know that she didn't need more days the way she was.
So instead dad wanted to go out for breakfast, then he actually went to costco with us, he walked the perimeter while hubby stayed with him and I went down the aisles to get what I needed. Not a long visit which was fine as it was so busy.
We found a tick on Allie just below her collar on her back, We got it out and hope we don't find any more. YUK! She wasn't impressed with hubby flipping her trying to keep her still, and he ended up sitting on her sort of. but we got it and then just loved her lots.
Later we went over to Thomas and Evas and had a good visit. They were so funny, he is so all boy and she is so tiny, quiet and playing in the little kitchen on the deck pouring water from one thing to the other. Got some good pics but they are on ds phone so he will put them up later. I will share after I get them.
Did a page of my art journal this eve, butw as so humid upstairs......... whew.
Now should go have a shower and go to bed. Very sticky - calling for more rain. geesh. but thankfully no flooding here.
HUGS all and hope you all sleep well or have a great day!
Early HAPPY CANADA DAY!!! I can hear the fireworks but not see them, jst a bit too far away.

    hate ticks. We get them sometimes here. Especially if he hasn't mowed recently.

Can't wait to see the pictures!

I feel the same way about my mom. I miss her but would not have wanted her to go on the way she was. emoticon

Friday evening

Friday, June 28, 2013

Well busy day but a good one till around 5.
This am ,had my dr apointment, and he just wanted to talk more about fibro and what to do now. He also gave me some pointers for the phone call that was to come. I was on the phone from 12 till nearly 1:20 I don't think she missed anything at all. Guess it went okay I was fine but tired out from it.
Anjay and her hubby came for a visit, and that was so nice as haven't seen them in ages. She also brought me a gift from when she was in Scotland. Now too funny, we are planning to go down to her end of province tomorrow so may drop in. Not totally sure as I have to go to the mall for dd as she isnt here and OH NEEDS flip flops from old navy for a $ tomorrow. lol but then she does wear them nearly year round. lol
I was doing well, today then around 5 or so felt that blanket of depression coming... we were at the grocery store and told hubby it is hard not to cry. We talked on way home about evryting that could be bugging me, and really was nothing just an overwhelming sad feeling. It is gone now but was there for while. Srange how it comes and goes like that.
Now it is just after 10 and I am going to go to bed, tired and want to read. Opps Allie just sat on my feet. guess she doesn't want me to move. LOL
night all Hugs

    I have those same feelings too and wonder what they are. I wonder if it has something to do with your disease process. I never had them before - feel like breaking out into tears.

Thursday home from trailer

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Well we got home just after 1 and we are both beat. I slept very poorly cos of pain in my legs every time I moved. and at 8:15 I had gotten back from a walk with allie and heard JIM JIM JERRY FIRE FIRE! so I went out and one next door had noticed smoke from another trailer but all outside. They fixed it was just an elec. thing outdoors but of course hubby was awake too. So neither of us got much sleep.
Long term called 3 x while we were away, I got them on my 2ncd return call. They are calling me back tomorrow at noon for a 1- 1.5 hr phone calla bout my conditions, my abilities, my pain, my meds, my dr. adn then my education. WHEW she suggested having evertying ready to tell her. HA I know and also theyt have it all.
Also dr called said I have an apt for yesterday, so called her and she got me in on a cancellation tomorrow at 10. Good as I can ask him if he is going to write anything or say anything tell me and I can fax it to her. lol
So have one load of laundry but want the jeans hubby has on so will do that later. I have to some time tomorrow get some groceries but that's okay cos maybe we will have company.
Too bad long term have to do the call tomorrow, I said we were having co. but she has to have it done by Friday as she is going away for a week.
Hope I sleep better this eve, and hubby too. Busy day tomorrow at least for me in the morning.
Okay going to go and put some laundry away. Very slow walking as both knees are really paining a lot. dd was just hre to take dads socks off and her sciatica started and son in laws shoulder is acting up. LOL they are so achy for so young!

What a great time we have had at the trailer this past week. I have enjoyed it all other than the darn blackflies love me. Oh well trying diff stuff to stop them. lol
Been really relaxing this time, as the heat makes it had to walk - even allie was beat yesterday. Doing some of my art journal, reading my library books and just chatting with mur and the neighbours.
Texted dd and called dad last night as was hot and wanted to ensure he was okay. Gave me a list of stuff from masstown Market as they have a neat selection of fresh foods and awesome crafts. Dad wants berries, apples and rye bread. lol
Well not a lot to comment on, Didnt even put puter on last night to log my fitbit for the day. first time since I got it that I intentionally didn't bother. LOL have to set puter up as I dont leave it at the table all day as I can home.
Off to have a cup of tea and read for while. Hubby will be awake soon, he was awake early as I was, both with back pain. So Allie woke me at going on to 8!!!!!! and now is 10 and hubby still sleeping.
Cya home tomorrow.... not sure I want to go. lol


LOVING Mixed Media Art Journalling

Monday, June 24, 2013

HI guys, changed my page but none of this is mine, as I haven't gotten any pics of my start to my art journal. I am enjoying the process but have to get out of the scrapbooking mode, it isn't as scrapbooked as the other one I started for sure. I will try to take some pics. Lots of fun and hoping it inspires me to do what I want to do artistically and not just say oh I don't know how, I may fail. FEAR of failure is a huge thing for me. Not sure where it came from but it is always lurking ....
One of the main reasons I am afraid when Long term start talking about return to work is cos I am not trained in anything else than caregiving and now that that is out of the picture and I am very limited in what the dr said I can do, I am afraid to be put in a situation where I don't know and may FAIL.........
But have done so much better in self talk and believing in ME, this past while. Enough that more than one spark buddie have commented on it even in my blogs and my pain and how I deal with it. I just have to learn that I am WORTH taking the time or care or even sometimes the money to look after me.
Okay off the puter as I only come on in the am and again at night when at the trailer. We use our phone for net and also not why I am here. Today is damp and cooler, but supposed to get a bit better. That's okay past few have been fantastic and today we were going in town to get groceries and visit hubbys sister as her son just left for his dream job, 6 months with a cruise line all over the place... and her daughter is the one that is in Colorado getting ready to go on mission trip to Thiland. So she will be a bit lonely today, ( also the one who had all the hubby problems while back, He still out galavanting and she is doing pretty good).
Cya later going to do a page or so while hubby sleeping!!!

    You are going to be SOOOO good at the is one of the BEST ways to express yourself.

When I first started with Spark people back in 2009 (wow can't believe it's been THAT long ago) there was a group I joined called Soul Collage. It was SO great! I learned SO much about myself and enjoyed it to the max. Unfortunately the leader got busy and the group faltered...but I'll never forget all that I learned and how much I loved it.

You can easily check it out...the originator Sheena Frost has a book out called Soul Collage.

I bet you'd love it...and I can't wait to see what you do with your journaling...believe in yourself and believe in yourself are an amazing and wonderful sparky friend...and I'm cheering you on to find your passion with all my heart! emoticon emoticon

    Love your new page!. You are so talented my friend ..
Fear of failure is in the back of all our minds, so never feel alone ..
I think a even worse fear, is not having enough courage to get started ..
We can do this my lovely friend .. We can do anything we put our minds too ..
We are Woman, hear us Roar ..
Hugs and Love Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love the art journal! Fear of failure is one of my greatest challenges too. Learning to run taught me so much about facing and dealing with that fear. Now, I mostly just take a deep breathe and push through. I accept that it's ok to fail, so long as I try. Cause really, we don't learn when we're smack dab in the middle of our comfort zone!
