NO snappy title today LOL
I am up, I have had my gf cereal and almond milk and I just got a call from dil to come get hair cut in half hr. So now as long as hubby doesn't have to go meet someone for phone I am good to go. I am also going to have him take time to look at the site and see if I should be safe to sign up. It is only 30 but is the fact that they then have my info. I am not an online buyer and also this part. card isn't as secure as another we used in the past.
So are we all ready for sept. For many of us, myself included this feels as if it is the new beginning time, kids back to school ect. even though it has been years for my kids back to school time, I love fall and always feel rejuvenated at this time.
Bring on Sept 1. Going to be hard, I admit it but guess you choose your hard! LOL I have no excuse not even having to work so will pace my hip and knee and do it. JUST DO IT!!!
Hope today hubbys phone saga ends, He is driving me nuts, but I do understand, we are locked into payinf and we don't have a phone to use. But wish the ones selling them would reply when they say they will. He also was frustrated with the new tv, internet system fiber op system when he turned the dvd system off the tv went off. I lol wonder did he read any instructions but wasn'\t about to ask lol
Okay gotta go shower and get ready to visit Thomas, albeit from other side of gate but hey will be a visit and hair cut. and probaby feel baby eva move cos mum is going to be up near me cutting hair. she is not one that likes anyone to feel her bellly.
my friend is having twins soon has made it to 37 wks and has a condition that could make them come early and she still is fine. so hope all goes well for her, she had better grow up quick that girl with 2 on the way.
will drop in again probably gotta chat with my buddies! cya

Well we have been spared Irene I think, we have some wind and are supposed to get rain this eve. I have the windows open cos it is so humid. hot and humid. I hope all my kids and dad are in as hear sirens this eve.
Good day, bad day. We took Lisa nd Mike out for brunch at coras for their 1st anniversary. Good time, till we were getting in the car and hubby didn't grab the edge of his jacket and his BRAND NEW cell phone crunched in between the door and seat. cracked screen, bent the edge. of course the reg insurance doesn't cover stupidity - he said it not me. Yes I am sad that it happened, but more so it was only 69$ cos we were reactivating and now to buy it - don't ask how much it is worth. lets just say we have a 3 year plan to pay for that we now will not have the same phone. We haven't much $ right now, and now have to buy another phone which to get close would be 4-500 but will be at least 250. argh omg!!! so he is taking long distance off our reg. phone, lessening something else so that we can in the long run make up the diff. Geesh!!! oh well......
I am proactivly getting ready for exercise LOL sounds silly but am wanting to do it, been walking some and now am getting the room re organized downstairs, and putting up my vision poster, and my "words " ( the ones you can stick and replace on the wall) that hubby bought for me while back. I have my set of towels, my dvds out, my yoga mat ready. I also am having a hard time getting ahold of the yoga place as only open during classes. I will go back on the site and see if I can get in. if not the community rec has some yoga classes that I can join. Not as expensive but main reason I wanted that was 30 for unlimited is great and I can see how the back ones would help, the core ones ect.
So tomorrow, call or email the yoga place, take dd to wheatons ( an awesome store that is country furniture ect. but she wants keruig coffees.
I hope Irene has blown herself out, has done way too much damage, caused death so hope she is done. I hope the rest all leave us all alone and just go out to sea.... doubt that will happen but we can all hope.
Going to sort my sheets of paper, also going to write out the foods for the breast cancer diet, the antiinflammatory diet and make sure I incorperate those more often along with the veggies and fruit I am using.
Really waiting for Sept to come... haven't done what I said so far, but plan to recitfy that. and as we say if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Well I have a plan and plan to get healthy!!!
HUGS all and night sparkers!

Good morning all... I woke up in the night still with aches in bothmylegs and at 7 am had a bad pain in the front muscle of my thigh. sigh. but oh well I will be fine.
Going to have a great healthy breakfast and then when hubby gets up will go get the food sales that we didn't get last week that I need. Flyers will be over this eve.
I have some phone calls to make, wish me well, - insurance re long term payment for while.... eeek and have to call physio and see when they can fit me back in. I wish hubbys insurance would just pay out like mine - you can submit online so much faster. oh well at least se have insurance!
always a positive to be had. I can walk, the pain isnt constant, some day I will get a new knee ( eek I guess LOL), I have a house, just enough $ to cover the bills, I have family and still a lot of my health.
Okay not a lot to say, will just end up rambling. Going to get some breaky and wake hubby up in while and off we go.
oh soninlaw came down with nico to our place when he was out for walk, wanted to know where the blood came from on the deck. LOL I thought I had washed and wiped it all up. Oh well told him we can't even find out where she got cut. and they were both fine when he came in our place. so Marlo remember the lesson - don't go near Nicos bowl of food! LOL
cya later on hugs

Okay where to start... he didn't have the results of the nerve testing yet, geesh guess she hasn't gotten her paperwork done - the dr that did it. oh well. He did have my CT scan which was a bunch of mumble to hubby and i got some of the jist till he started talking reg. talk .lol
L1-2 mild OA ( osteoarthritis)
L2-3 small disc herniation compressing R something and some OA
L3-4 moderate bulging disc annulus. some oa anad short pedicles and mild central stenosis ( narrowing of area)
L4-5 as above
L5-S1 (starting of sciatic area) diffuse bulging of disc. and OA, and more narrowing but nerve not displaced yet no focal disc herniation
So that is have osteoarthritis, have 2 spots that are narrowing and some bulging herniated discs. He feels that could be dong some of the hip, but the worst part is on the R side which surprised him
He is sending me to a neurologist/anesthesiologist to discuss pain ect and perhaps an epidural. I looked and said NO I can't do it. he asked why I told him again how terrified I am, dh was watching but stayed quiet. I started to cry Dr said you can go talk to him but the decision is yours. anyway........... I am hoping that the new meds work enough to help me.
My R knee exray shows severe deterioration which has worsen a lot since 2 years ago, showed me where and said that is is bad. but he wants to figure this out before sending me to dr brian again. so now I know why it is so very sore and swollen.
I am off work till nov 4th so far. I have an apt in Oct and again in Nov. I have no clue how long it will take to get in to this new specialist. Anyway he was pleased with the ct scan cos that gave him some ideas of what it could be. He is pretty sure that it is not MS he said wished he had the other results. I am sure by Oct apointment the results were in. My apt was to be in a month but she couldnt fit me, so gave me oct 4, nov 4, dec 5. so have my apt. they are always 15 mins as per norm. but he was with me for 30 today. sorry to the ones behind me!!
Hubby and I went down to visit nico as the kids both worked today, just cos he is still so new. Fine, and then we went down and took both dogs for walk, wow hubby walked a fair bit, my knee hurt but I want to walk. We then went back to dd house, and they both had a drink. then marlo our dog went to eat out of his bowl OMG thank god hubby was right there, Nico much larger and stronger, growled grabbed her an dshe cried, hubby yelled and clapped his hands. they both looked up and moved. marlo walked away adn spit and a smallish med size amt of blood and spit came out she then walked a bit and had it dripping. I was like oh great. anyway I took her out and check her face, and mouth didnt'see anyting, so checked her neck as he had her there. but was only her fur. so we are thinking since he was over her, his nail may have hit the outer section of her mouth. But we will watch the food and put it up when they are around. They did tell her he may guard his food. whew. otherwise they were fine.
I took my sundress back......... I loved it but only wore it for half day adn was all pilling on side. I realize it probably would as it was tshirt material but not after a few hrs. They didn't have any other to fit so oh well at least I know I will again find a dress to wear. YES! thanks Deanna!
Now tomorrow, call insurance co so they know I will be needing long term, take note to ei to contiue ei to end of sick benefits. and go to the yoga place to inquire about classes.
We don't think we will bother to go to trailer thurs as we are not sure about the hurricane and rain. If it is going to rain andblow not sure we want to be in trailer as is pain in hard rain. We have to walk dog to pee and can't just say out pee come back lol and we have stuff to do here.
Okay long but you know as much as I do for now. I have also charted my food and had no processed at all yet today! not going to eithe ras it is 7 pm.
cya hugs and love you all!!!

Well sunny and a breeze blowing, last night was muggy and I didn't sleep well, woke up to go pee and TMI ddribbled on floor. Then at 7 am woke with bad bad charly horse and dribbled in bed! OMG argh. I have had stress incontinence since I was a young teen if you tickled me, or I laughed I would dribble. Has gotten a bit worse as I aged. Now past bit find it is more than a dribble, which leads me to telling dr. as he has asked in regards to this pain if i was having bladder issues. Now what! Oh well go to dr tomorrow - taking hubby and he has promised to go as another set of ears.
So even though I am tired, I am not sleepy, and will enjoy this sunny but cooler day. That's my kind of day. I have to get some work done, finish laundry, wash sheets. Wish I had a clothes line! LOL
We want to go find a bbq as we don't have one home - only a small one at the trailer and have been enjoying it a lot. Then over to take marlo to visit nico. He is a very good dog for only having him that long. I am glad for dd and hubby. I also need to ask dil to cut my hair as she ewasn't able to before we went to trailer.
So some chores, some reading and then out we go for while. I hope I don't have anymore charley horses.
You know, I was reading someones food loggings and thought OMG how does she lose wt. she doesn't eat much. And then thought how does she get the recomended amt of nutrients. Boy I eat too much lol and still don't get the recomended amts. I do usually have the right ratio of carbs, protein and fat but not enough b12, calc. ect. so not sure how to fix it but will see. will admit when eating paleo it was the best.
okay off I go for while. cya later
