Hope you all had a great weekend. We did for sure. Ds and his family came up on Sunday to visit and play. Play we did, Thomas doesn't stop and Eva not far behind. She is quieter but still busy. At least she will sit in the rocks and move them around and be happy for bit, HE is go go go all total BOY lol other than too many people ahead of us for the wagon ride and trying to explain we will go but the next turn he was happy. Tears then but thats okay he was fine after and enjoyed the wagon ride. lol
Today my dear friend Tanna is coming to visit. She came last time we were down too, I hope that all is well with her She is the one with the 2 cancer problems adn for some reason hubby feels as if her lung cancer is back again. I hope not it was gone, did come back and now she is on some medication to help it stay away.... still smoking though.
My toes are cold lol guess need some shoes on or turn the heat on. It wasn't as damp this am, but now is getting cooler in here. Outside is probably okay as not much breeze and next door is sitting out with t shirt. I have the heat on 68 and hasn't come on...
I am back to ensuring my inflammation markers stay down. A spark friend well 2 but one now doesn't consider me a friend,, , ( said I am non supportive but I certainly didn't mean anything in that way ), has made me realize this is a life long journey. Thanks to SIMPLELIFE4ME making me see that we have to take care of ourselves all the time. I know it and such but, do we all do it ? nope ....But after being off plan and even eating a few reg. cookies yesterday and last night having stomach cramps, burping and aches in my joints, it has only proved and shown me that I need to eat my greens and veggies more and get away from the sugar and gluten.
Back to the drawing board, luckily I haven't been too far away too long LOL
So going to have a good healthy day, have written a heartfelt apology to my dear sparkfriend, who I certainly didn't mean to hurt and hope that she reads the mail.
As for my other spark friends, HUGS and lots of love on this day. Do your best, I will do mine no matter what it entails. We can only expect what we can do, but we at least have to try.

Well so busy today, what with getting ready for trailer, dr apt and had to wait nearly 45 mins to get in he was so behind and that was with a 9:15 apointment! then he forgot to give me perscription so called sec. and had to wait till 3 to get it, so took it to store to get filled, half hr... Earlier in day went to costco for my new glasses, like them but are a tad tight ut they will loosen and i can get them adjusted when we go back , brought my old ones just in case.
So dr said my mid back xray shows arthritis in a few areas, and deggeneration and narrowin of T12 I think it was, alost as if all the arthritis is joining up. Sigh. also finally he checked my shoulder when I said I can only lift it this far... bursitis and a slight rotator cuff issue which I know has been at least 5 years or so. Okay........ gave me some exercises for it.Great so will do those ven brought my band with me to trailer to do them.
he then said I got a letter from long term, but haven't gotten it in puter yet as just rec'ved it. Something about jobs you can do....
I got home called long term and actually got her on phone, gave her my new diagnosis and such and said what is this letter, I ddint get one.... so she said there are 5 jobs that you could perhaps do, but I hae to go over all this with my manager first then it is sent to whereever and then we will contact you. So I said what are the jobs I dont have this letter.
1. cashier.......... Yea right, I told them I can not static stand at all, and with my R arm and botht thumbs SURE not
2. clerical of some type
3. companion ( well yea I could do pt sitting as long as I don't have to help them walk or anything cos if they fall and or I fall pretty sure there could be some legal ramifications.
4. ticket agent at airport?
5 I dont know but was similar.
OKayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.... not! All are standing or sitting in one spot, 2 I have no skills for. only one I can see is companion but will someone hire me if I can't be sure of complete safety of client or self?
So I said I need to know, what does my policy say about after 2 years. If you can't fit in the parameters we set then it is done. Finished. So hubby said call red x to make sure. So called and she was great said I will call st. john were head office is. She got back to me, and gave me the guys number who said same thing, so asked do I still keep the non long term stuff ie perscriptions and physio etc he said well pretty sure no, but will not say till I talk to the head office in Winnipeg. So he will get back to me.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we will be out any of my income soon only hubbys military disability pension.... freaking out a bit but more just saying whatever will be, cos my cousin is like that so figure for now will just enjoy the trailer and the kids coming. Hubby is trying to figure what we need, and how much dad will have to pay.
Now it is after 11 pm and I am going to bed, and hpe that I sleep well. usually first night at trailer I dont but will hope I do.

HI sparkers... I have been busy with my cousin in town, we have had a good visit,even dad hasn't minded her company. She is super hyper and loud, very excitable but has been rather calmer this time. She LOVED the visit at ds with the kids and they were good and sat with her, looked at books she brought etc.
She keeps trying to give me money, some for our anniversary, some for gas, tip or pay when we are out. We all say no, you are on a fixed income, you saved to come so let us. So after shoving $$ in the storage slots in the dash etc. I gave up and last night, we went and bought her a knock off chamila bracelet. Just the leather/vinyl bracelet and 5 beads as you buy 4 get 5. Told ds that I was going to do it with a blue bead as she loves blue, he came back with 20 said get one from each of the kids as she is always sending clothes etc. dad said get one from me and we got one from dd, but she will pay me. so a pink crystal like one from Eva, a silver one that says family which she will love ( her parents are gone her one sister is a B, and tries to take her for any extra she has, the other sister lives out west), a topaz one that is dads birthstone, and silver sunflower and a blue one from Thomas. She will cry and be so happy. I am not giving it to her till we are ready to return her to her friends.
I have gained back at least 6 lbs from the lowest , and am a tad disgusted cos it isn't good to be a yo yo but will get back at it. Can't imagine if i wasn't walking my 12,000 -17,000 steps a day. But tomorrow I will not go with dd and her friend and dad and hubby as they want to go out for fish and chips and I don't really care to go, Dad may coerce me as he likes us all to go but will see. I have all healthy stuff planned to go to the trailer.
So hubby bought a new chain for the chainsaw, then a new spark plug, and still won't start. NOthing was wrong other than it was hard to start and now won't at all even after replacing all this. So again, nothing done to the yard. OMG ARGH but it will eevn if he has to rent the 16inch one but silly as we have that. It will get working he is good at fixing things.
Not sure how long we will go to the trailer, but do know that the kids are coming sat. Thomas said yesterday Pepe we are still going to your trailer okay? can we go on the wagon ride. and then he said jumping and clapping we are going to the camping playground! yaaaa. lol So Sat will be a busy day! lol
Well not much more for now, going to get a bit done and then go get dd, and cousin, drop dd off at the market and then do a bit with Bev. she did reiki on me yesterday and it did help. still sore but slept a lot better.
Okay off we go!!!
dad, bev, and Thomas
us at lunch I am so NOT photogenic and didn't know I was in the pic. lol
statue of a huge moose that is near one of the community by us, hubby doesn't take great pics can't see us lol had my new skort on and such but will get another pic later

What a fantastic day! sunny, breezy, just a great summer day. Weather to remember in the dead of winter. lol Took Allie for a walk this am, and she did well, lol helped we didn't meet up with anyone. I like those walks, to talk to myself, look at gardens just mosy along .
Came home and got the dishes done and kitchen cleaned up. and then we went out for breakfast. At the restaurant, was some ladies setting up clothes!??? Asked the waitress what's up, not sure. so waited awhile then people started going over so off I went. Ironically, they were P2P company which took over weekender home sales when they went under. I used to sell weekender clothing. Anyway liked stuff but had no money to buy. Saw a skort that was 58 on sale for 23. which I loved. Hubby said well you said your shorts are all too big so go try it on. Bought, it he had to convince me but so glad I did. It is spandex shorts, and the skirt part is spandexy too. Size M. and fits well. It is a total pixel of colours and will go with about 3 tshirts and 4or 5 tank tops. So good to go. I felt so good in it, and young and cute as it is a tad short but I like it.
Then went to ds and wasn't sure if I would get my hair cut short, or a trim the back off. She was so sick looking ( had called saying she would do it but felt rotten, but knew I wanted it done for compnay coming too). So she just took the back off. fine by me, I am easy with my hair and as you all know can't make up my mind LOL Said to myself perhaps that is reason to grow it lol
Thomas and Eva were sweet. She said nana read book. and thomas very quietly said pepe can we go play at your trailer again PLEASE. then said see papa I asked nicely lol
So home and had supper now was chatting with a friend on fb, and checking out trailers. Hubby is saying lets look what we can get for an even trade... that YOU will want to travel in. Okay. lol
This one covers most of what we talked about, an extra area for storage, company etc. and such.. also has a fair bit of storage and lots of windows. Now to find one in the area, as not too keen on buying sight unseen.
Okay gotta go, allie and I are going exercising. and BTW she wasn't keen on her nail trim but fine after.
