Boy I am so bushed. My cousin called while hubby and I were halfway through the 4th attempt at the LETTER lol and all I did was yawn. I didn't realize how much it was taking out of me, to change some wording, get it all in but not make it too long. WHEW!!!
But it is done and now in the morning I will photocopy it and the letter sent to me, along with a note to my dr and leave it for him. I hope he doesn't take too long and we can get that letter on its way.
So think I will go and read, I watched Amazing race Canada and the team that I wanted one. I only started watchign 3 shows ago but it was pretty good. Will watch again if they have another.
But for now I am heading to bed, I didn't sleep great last night, okay but would love a good nights sleep tonight. Had a good day, Great chat and tea with Mother Nature, talked to Anjays journey on the phone and fb chat with Von 1962. See what spark people has done! given me great support all over the world, from England, Australia and right in my own province and town!
HUGS and I my

HI sparkers, slept okay, woke in night with back pain and leg/muscle pain but not too bad now. The weather has turned cooler than the past 2 days so perhaps that is some of it.
I am hoping I will meet up with my friend to go over the letter but now thanks to another friend and a few others who gave me ideas, I no longer feel this need to get her help. If she can't do it this am, then I am just going to put some changes and fine tune the one I have.
Also going to meet up with Mother nature for tea!!!! YES we always have a good chat and enjoy a tea.
Saw this on FB, it so sums up so many things in my life, however have become much better at thinking positive and also thinking why not, why can't I ( or we) do .... go.... so love this as it resonated with me - where I am and where and what I am striving for.

Thanks to spark person Sparkluke who was motivator the other day, and he mentioned his mum having fibromyalgia, and her blog, I have gotten a new appreciation for all that you can really do to help yourself if you really truly want to be better.
My dr said that most of my synptoms are still arthritis and a bit of fibro but I know that most of this relates to arthritis too. it is inflamation in your body. I did much better when i was eating as the naturpath suggested.
I just took the time with breaks to walk and stretch and went back to the first of her blogs. I learned how she was not able to move, think, had to quit work, ached evrywhere, didnt sleep well, pain in knees, back, feet, elbows ( hmmm sound familiar?) and how she slowly has gotten better.
Now know that there are going to be some people that will scoff, or say OMG that is too much work. Well I agree, it is an imense amount of work but if you really want to get well and not just wish to be well, and hope that someday some magic thing is going to make you well, but are willing to try and work and work hard to do these thinsg I have no doubt that it will work.
I am going back to my eating less processed and less sugar as that is what I have been having issues with again. I will then get out my vinegar etc. which i used to use and mostly still do for cleaning, I will add more ginger and garlic to my meals. eat the foods that are said to be anti inflammatory. My biggest challenge will be to clean up the shampoo, toothpaste, cosmetics ( dont use a lot ) and find alternatives that are chemical free. Yes you can find recipes on line for that too.
YES a lot but take it one step at a time... I hope that some of my friends go read her blog, and more than that do what she has done. TRY don't say omg too much work, too $$, has been provenby her and some other friends of mine and myself that eating healthy is not that much more as long as you cut out the other stuff. cant buy chips, pop, etc for family and healthy for you and not expect it to be less. but none of us need it.
Anyway........... I am going to get a big drink of water cos I am super hot again, hot flashes galore the past 2 days, wonder if that is why I am not sleeping as well etc. then going to go and read for a while. I have a healthy book from library that I will start.
So hope my friends take my advice, and I too can stick with it. HUGS to all and hope that even reading it will stick in your mind so you may start some of this sooner than later.......
here is her blog.......

Well a first for a long while! Very little pain after this am, but have been very dizzy and tipy when we were out. Good thing hubby stayed near. lol
So got home from the store and next door has her laundry all over and across our shared front step. her bra, and winter hat, panties, winter vest, geesh. and get this the sun is on the other side of the house in the afternoon, but she has all this out in the front yard! OMG Said to mur hmmm bra, panties a dress... he said I didnt' bother to look and bet she forgot she put them out there.
Hubby moved all dads furniure away from the walls, and measured for what we neeeded. We went and got that today and now tomorrow he will start it. So we are really pleased at what we needed and aside for a lot of cuts to make in hallway shouldn't be too bad. hope to get the framing for closets done, he isnt sure he will get the doors on but maybe.
My friend that was to help with letter and was sick yesterday ended up at dr today with a eye and sinus infection and meds. dr said stay in bed and let the meds work then see how you do. So she will call tomorrow. thats okay as I only got my return call from red x today.
Well presume dad got to his brothers, as noone has called to say where is he? LOL I hope he has a good time, he will be beat today that was a 5 hr flight as he had 2 stops. oh well he will be okay I hope. hoping they nap as ghe does and he wont say I want to lay down. lol he is a big boy and can speak for himself if he wants.
Guess better go and take allie for a walk. I am tired and it is early... but think will make a smoothy haven't had any in whlle.
Hope all are well and doing their best. I can honestly say I need a kick in the butt big time.
HUGS all and cya later'

Just got back from last walk and had put fitbit on charger to sync and went out the door without it. now not over my 10,000 but know it would be near 11. darn oh well I know I went.
Back has been sore today, not sure why -in that I didn't do anything to annoy it lol
Tomorrow is cole harbour days here in our community and parade, farmers market, art show, some booths and games and run, also fireworks at night that we will see perfectly off our deck. So will walk over and see whats up, then we are gong to the recycle place to take our oils etc. and not sure what else, then will watch fireworks.
Sunday my friend is coming over to help with my letter, also have spark friend that is knowledgeable in this as she has gone through it all that will help me also. I am thankful for the help and any suggestions.
Monday dad leaves for Ontario. Pretty good be 88 in november and off to see his only living sibling of 9. his twin brother and he are the only 2 left. Neat eh? He is gone for 4 days so hope all goes well.
Anyway hope to sleep better this eve. Not sure why I am not sleeping well at home and am at trailer. could be the noise but we are used to that, think it is cos I am hot and cold here and just seem okay at trailer. have a quilt and sheet, and perhaps the quilt is too heavy but no extra blankets only quilt or duvet. oh well will survive.
