Have been primal for a week now and still very much in the learning curve. Will say that my knees have been great, even with a change in the weather. However this new back pain still is with me and is bad. I have a dr apt for the 8th which I was going to give hubby if he needed it but now it will be mine if not sooner. I am not too bad walking, and if I sit a certain way am okay but to get up or down or turn at all when sitting wowowowowo pain. I can turn when standing but feels compressed when i sit. NO pins and needles or anything like that so that is good. Just don't want it to be anything really bad.
So we went and drove by 3 houses, one is a maybe the other 2 no. Have 3 more to see too. then will see if we want to really look inside. Bungalows are hard to find here, but side splits with everything up and just 4 steps up or down aren't too bad. Better than my 12 steps for each level. Will see.
We also went looking at trucks. My God that man gives me an idea and then he is gone with it, lol he said well tthe same as you and the houses, I said you know it is still an option....
We were at a dealer and the truck we want to get, that can pull the trailer, still good well so so gas mileage, and not 4 doors is hard to come by. They found one over in Halifax, was a tad high but hubby is a dickerer when it is vehicles. and we are seriously thinking about it. My issues again is dad, thought you paid your bills, well with trade in it is only 200 a month and with all the bills paid that is doable easily. so but he will have somethign to say. but then we can take the trailer up to Moncton and get it fixed during the winter/spring and then when it is fixed and the weather is good we can go pick it uip and go some places rathe rthan going to the same place all the time. He figured it costs 2,000 to keep it at that park and about 50 in gas there and back everytime. so he wants to go more places, and I will learn to not be so nervous him towing. that is the only reason I want it in one place.
So will see. then we are going to go drive as I said and look at one or two places then decide if we want to look at them inside.
if that worked it is nice, but no bathroom for dad in basement but 2 up. so we would have to put one in basement. we want 2 up so that is good.
now one part says 2 baths one says 3 so not sure but I love this one, yes the kitchen is old but like the water... the first one has awesome kitchen and bath ... it is farther out, about 20 mins this one is about 10
this one is farther about 25 mins or so dad is fine with that area well as far as I know. lol it has the 3 baths but will have to see - we don't know that area at all.
the other that is just a few streets over, has no pics. and I find the yard too small, but it is a very good price for the area, and houses around are more so would be good investment but I think it will be too small and I don't like the yard. will see.
okay just to show some if they worked even, I don't know anyway............ we still have the option to stay here. Just seems like a lot of work for hubby, shower down, toilet sink main, new tub surround etc. fix rails for dad to get down the back door... a lot of odds and ends. oh well more to think but I like this, he likes his trucks. hmmmm
Going to take morphine this eve and hope I don't wake everytime I move. HUGS

I am having a good day despite the back pain... It is a tad better but still there when I move a certain way or get up from a chair.
We went to the rv show but was a waste of $$ as there were only 3 motorhomes, so we then went for lunch, funny how we always have a great time and chat when we go out. I had baked halibut and veggie and tea so very pleased! especially since it twas on a whim to go out.
Then we get home, talking about cars vs trucks, vs motor home, vs keeping trailer. Then he says you do realize that cos the bills are paid we can still sell this house and look for something else. Well I guess I knew it but at the same time, figured we had it all organized, I am thinking that with my back so bad, hubby is wondering about this 3 level house even with a bath on this floor. He did say that he is willing to find something that we would stay in that is just outside the city and then fix it some if need be depending on price. So been looking again cos I love doing that anyway. Found one in a very good price just 2 streets over and if we fixed it up some etc. would sell for a lot as the houses around there are much more. I said to hubby wonder why this is lower, think cos it is smaller.
But just playing around, more houses will come on the market in the next month or so. I didn't see too many that I would like, about 4 maybe. anyway.......
We walked about 1.5 hrs at the rv show but we also didn't go fast so am only going to take about 20 mins to post as my walk today.
So a good day, tomorrow we take dad to dr, he is having something taken off his leg and we aren't sure if he will need a ddrive so just going with him. He is going to want to go to tims, so I will have a green tea and nothing else! I can do that. then not sure what else to do, maybe we will go drive to see these 3 houses as a driveby. I am not sure as it is supposed to snow but not much. Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyy just going day to day but doing well.
Still doing well on my primal diet stuff and learning lots. A few new spark friends have been doing this type for while and am learning about books, websites, and podcasts. Interesting stuff.

Had a cute conversation with dil today, she had rice krispie square ( which ds dosn't eat or let Thomas have much of) anyway she was sitting with her coffee and a square, Thomas says mmmm, mmmmm, so Anna says what do you say ( trying to teach please and thank you) he says want some? cos they say to him want some when giving him supper. she laughed said say please, he said pe. she gave him some and it continued want some?? so it was gone and he looked at her coffee she said NO hot, it is coffee and hot. He says ohhhh, then looks in the cup and say PLEASE. lol so she got up and gave him his sippy cup. Shows that he can talk, but I think just can't be bothered unless he wants something. He also says ahhh baby, and rocks the chair saying weeee. he is a real mimiker.
On our way to dd, to mabye go to the hardware store, not sure. Hubby is going to take the caulk out of her tub and re do with silicone. Will see how he is after if we are going anywhere else. Schools were cancelled cos snow, rain, ice is on it's way. it is snowing right now but not bad, of course the icy and rain is at 4-6 right at busy time. argh
I am doing well eating less carbs, but do have to figure it out more, I dont' want the cramps I got doing paleo in the summer, so not really paleo more primal and veggies this time. But am enjoying my greenish smoothies! at least I know I am getting more veggies daily.
Best get going, think it will be the bike or maybe wts today, Yea think I will try some wts today. not sure hubby will want to walk after dd and depends on weather. so a joyinky walk and some wts. even if I just do a bit myself.
keep sparking and I will keep learning about what my body needs, know it doesn't need the refined junk but have to find what else it does need.
I walked for 10 mins and did weights for 5

Sun is out and it is cold. Seems always when sun is out it is colder. I am going to have to bundle up for our walk. Or my walk but presuming he will come.
Saw on FB that a lady my age, who I worked with at the nursing home, her hubby has passed. I don't know of what or wyhy but it does make you stop and think. I am pretty sure he is same age as she cos we all brought in pics and it was him and her years ago. I am going to message a friend who still works there and see. My heart goes out to her as it must be such a hard thing.
Today, I am hoping that hubby will feel well enough to either do some boxes ( yea I know still not done! LOL) or go to dd and do a wee bit more. Since she decided to go full out, and bought a sink, taps and counter, that has to be done but as hubby says if I was feeling totally up to par that be nothing. Anyway. will see, knowing him he will say wait a day.
I have eaten 2 days totally clean. now I know this isn't what to do but I did it and now am curious. I weighed yesterday am and was up to 199 again, last night before my bath I thought should get weighed, why you fool want to see over 200?? duh so did it anyway and was 193. so this am, 199. what gives. I always pee, get weighed and then get dressed. Never do I weigh less at night. and 6 lbs in a day. but last week midd week I was up 3 and on weigh day down again. hmmmmmmmmm stay off scale except weigh day which is sat then not again till the challenge starts. WOWOWOWonder if I could lol stay off scale till the next 5% challenge starts!?
okay will be back later to edit what all goes on and my amt of mins today.
hugs sparkers and if enough of us shine perhaps it can be a sunny day for us all!
