Thursday, December 12, 2013

Well am really putting my lessons from class to play today. Lots to do and am pacing, prioritzing and only doing what I get done. I did some of dads stuff last night, some this am, then stopped and rested, -didn't take much to tire me out!- so we have to get some groceries today, know that one of my coupons stop today so will be doing that, the other stores will be there tomorrow and next day....
Right now am going to figure what I want to make - easy, healthy and still tasty. Not much and few of the regulars. Have one for hubby but have the ingredients. So short and sweet for now as have to go check recipes as we are leaving in a bit, hubby has dr apt later so will be home early and then rest for me. My elbow is wicked sore, and rest of me is aching.
Tomorrow last day of class, then out for lunch with anjays-journey and nsmooma. that will be fun. Then later hubby said we will celebrate some how cos he is so proud and pleased that I finished the course. Oh have to say that because of being a pt. of the pain clinic, I now can go to their physio for adaptations for my exercises, get free qi gong classes and ti chi for arthritis for free. Hoping that tomorrow when it is the phyciatrists turn to wrap up we can have a free session with him! LOL
Have to spark mail another sparker she was the main person in my dreams last night, funny cos I dont follow her all the time! LOL
Okay off to check recipes.
HUGS

    I'm very proud of you for finishing the course too!! You must take qigong classes!! I love them and it's one of the few things my husband has even tried and liked. There are some moves that we thought felt so good that we both laughed!! Seriously, I hope you try it.

    I love Tai Chi. Great way to get mobile. Haven't done much Qi Gong but I believe that is good too. How great to be able to get these exercises free. I hope you enjoy them both.

My Snowman

Monday, December 09, 2013

I usually have my snowmen on the stairs etc. but with allie it isn't safe. Especially with the twig arms as she loves her sticks lol so since we can't finish the bathroom, I asked can we tidy it up and I can put my snowman up where she can't get them...













I hope you like my snowmen that is most of them... some are scattered and didnt bother to take their pics. And cos some will wonder, yes that is my mother on the bottom shelf I put a little snowman bell beside her.

Monday so so day

Monday, December 09, 2013

Well didn't sleep well so sort ot a very take it easy day. Not going anywhere, Hubby is going to son in laws to help put him for a few mins. Then he is coming back to help me, then go downstairs and have a beer with dad. Dad invited him down last night but he was too tired.

Had a great chat with Anjays journey this am, and while walking, sitting as usual while I am on the phone, got up and my ankle feels as if I sprained it, I can't walk right on it without sharp pain. Now I was sitting when this happened and I did nothing. Figured okay will go away, really hobbled downstairs and walked around, well here it is 2 hrs later and it is still very sore. I still figure it will get better in a bit.

Well this is the last week of the fibro clinic. I will be glad as it has been very tiring for me. I am presuming it is that as nothing else has changed. But boy I am beat. Be glad it is a week before busyness of Christmas really starts. I haven't many to buy for nor do I have the money so that is fine. lol We have a few things to get and I haven't a clue what to get for hubby. He has a few little things for me that I know about which is fine. He also bought me a new pottery mug at the craft fair which I had presumed was for my bday but he said here use it today, lighter and a big handle and spot to hold it, good when your hands ache. Sweetie he is.

Best go and get a bit done. really did learn to pace and take my time on this course. Trying hard to put it in practise!

HUGS and so glad to see Susie back. MIssed you dear friend.

    Wishing you the best and the stamina to get through it !!! Sounds like a rough time of it with the travel and all. I got my port out last Wednesday a minor operation, but it seems like this was the icing on the cake that took my energy away I have managed to get a few things done with plenty of rest in between. Keep us up to date on your happenings. emoticon

Sunday a day of mixed emotions

Sunday, December 08, 2013

Had a good day today yea I did I think lol Hubby and I took Dd to the craft fair where she was going to be selling their marshmallows. Her biz partner was at the other fair. This fair we went to is in the small village we used to live in and where my best friend lives. She is the organizer of this huge fair and does the best job!

So we went to the fair, and while I was wandering around looking for familiar faces, I started feeling hmmm sad sort of. Found Susan my friend, and she is super busy of course, we hugged so tight and so good I nearly started to cry. Good thing I didn't cos she would have been worried and such and had no time for that today. And really nothing was wrong just really guess I missed her more than I thought. Boy I was near tears a few times today.
Then later in the day, 5 friends stopped by at various times that I used to work with at the nursing home there. Was so great to see them. 2 have lost their hubbies this year and one of those her twin sister has had extremely poor health. All of us are under 60. So was a nice chat with them all. But in the back of my head was this sad, I miss Susan so much feeling.
Strange cos have gone to that fair every year since we moved and I haven't ever felt like this. Anyway........ had a good time. DD did great in sales and I was able to sit, walk , rest and visit. Long day but good.

We drove by our old house and man I wanted it too. I am trying to think this out, and all I can think is the stress is makign me tired. BUT I had worse stress at that house and time, as that is when hubbies depression and anxiety was at its worse and we had a really hard time for year and a bit. But maybe it is just I want to move, want simplier quieter place. I don't know but do know it will not be long before I go visit Susan and Tanna and Marlene!!!

Now have a message to reply to and then must get to bed, didn't sleep well last night, had a lot of foot pain and just kept waking with aches and pains. Hope to sleep well this eve and wake refreshed instead of still tired.

HUGS and hope you all had a great day.

    I can understand you getting sentimental about visiting with your old friends! I have been going through a lot of old pictures and such lately, as we are moving, and I felt the same way! Glad your daughter did well with her sales, and so glad that you got to visit your old stomping grounds. Oh, have to tell you, your background photo is just gorgeous! emoticon

Tuesday after supper

Tuesday, December 03, 2013

Oh sparkers... I just can't believe how exhausted, worn out, beat, just plain tired I am these days. And yes it all started when the course started, thankfully this week and one more. I said today that it is wearing me out and I am so surprised, another girl there said the same thing, her pain is worse, and she goes home and sleeps then gets up to do the chores ( she has a farm). They agreed that while they are showing us tips adn tricks to help "Manage" not get rid of the pain, being out and about can wear us out. I find also that the bus makes my neck ache and then my elbow cos holding my neck and only have so much room and can't move. Takes till nearly 11 till my neck and arm get okay. then at 12:45 back on the bus. Whew.

ANyway can always be worse... wanna know worse LOL I am so far off any type of healthy eating, not drinking my water, not exercising, not even walking allie as far or as often, cos I am just way tooo tired. Murray has even stepped up tot he plate as he sees how worn I am. I wish I had a dr apt sooner than the end of the month but oh well. It is the day before my bday... great day to go to dr. Get my head on straight and start out with a better frame of mind for ht new year. I know also that there is more stress cos of the legal stuff but that hasn't had anything happen yet so I have calmed down some. Just so tired...............

So this eve, will take allie around block or a tad further but it is pouring so doubt it, then going to watch biggest loser and go to bed! Hope to sleep well, even though the alarm is set. I was awake off and on last night watching the clock again. sigh.

Okay off to drink my tea and relax for bit before the show. probably will fall asleep.
HUGS

    I hope you're able to get some rest and it truly is wonderful when our family members give us a hand. I think the added stress of the holidays takes a mental and physical toll on us folks with chronic pain. I know sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed thinking of all of the things I need to get done. Time goes too fast for me. I move so much slower than it does. So hang in there. You're not alone. Do what you can and let other things that aren't top priority go. Be kind to yourself first. That's a must to make it through the days ahead. Thinking of you and wishing you the best! emoticon

    I'm really sorry to hear this. Does this class seem to help anyone at all who takes it or does everyone have the same reaction as you and the other woman? I think that I would ask the leaders if this is typical. Do the tips help the pain at all? Is is supposed to get better after you get used to it? Are they saying you should use the tips but not be active out of the house as it will make it worse? It seems confusing to me. It doesn't seem like it would be of much benefit if it makes people feel worse. It would be nice if you could find some transportation other than the bus. Maybe this is just some kind of assessment tool in order to qualify for benefits.

    Wow Cindy, must be tiring for you. All that way three days a week for 3 hours, plus travel time. No wonder you are tired. I find pain itself is very tiring. Way to go and remember to listen to your emoticon body!! Take care Hugs!!
