Another day of bautiful weather and colours. The trees are so pretty, cos we had a few days of nearly winter, the cold has brought outthe vibrant colours.
Today, hubby has a dr apt and then goes to donate blood. I think I will go with him and while he is giving blood, I will walk the block around the church where it is held at. I also walked the dog this am, slooooooooow as she was limping a bit. And I did a JOYINKY and did 10 laps around my main floor! LOL even told the dog she had to wait 2 more laps to go out on the deck! LOL
This morning is the first day in bit that I haven't woken with a headache and super tired. Those pills are a pain, they do take the flutters and pain awway but are hard on your liver apparently and make me so tired. anyway am down to 2 a night instead of 3.
So totally back on track from our vacation and 2 thanksgiving suppers. Must say DD loves doing that stuff, had made carrots with maple syrup and almonds, a squash and apple dish ( which I actually liked!!), and everyting else was great. Her turkey turned out good, SHE actually cleaned and stuffed it with stuffing for grampa. She who won't touch meat, nearly makes her sick to touch it, been a veg. since she was 12. So I did the pots and pans and then drove dad home, and we went back for dessert. I had a tiny pc of pumpkin pie, and yes had to try her carrot pumpkin cake, but only a silver. She did so well!
Now mucst get the rest of this day started. Hubby is up and getting ready to go to dr apt. Then back for bit, let dd dog out as they both hadto leave and are late getting home. After lunch blood letting time LOL
What will I do today to make my tomorrow a better day!?
-do more laps in house
-drink my water
- stay on track with portion and good food
-do some weights for arms
Will be back this eve to let you know how well I do today.
HUGS sparkers and have a super day.

What a beautiful sunny warm day. We broke record highs yesterday. Such great fall weather.
I have a lot to be thankfulf or this year.... I may not feel great today, a huge headache that I woke with but am still thankful that I was able to get up, walk, move, and take dog for walk.
Thankful that we have options and not just omg losing our house. Thankful that I am as well as I am, and don't have MS etc. Thankful that my breast scare in March was just that, a scare. Thankful that I am able to make choices that can affect my health and wellbeing. Thankful that hubby is doing okay and not overly nuts about all this stuff going on. Thankful for Thomas and his almost here sister Eva. Of course my kids and their families. My dad for being here, and even though a lot of my stress is around him, I don't want him to be gone unless he was suffering.
HUGS to all, there are more that I can list but right now being on the puter isn't helping my head.
What can I do today to make my tomorrow a better day?
-proper portions at dd thanksgiving dinner
-walked the dog
- drink my water
- and make a decision ( that would help my mental health)
well off for a rest and then shower to go to dd. hoping the tylenol will take the headache away.

WOW what a change in weather, it is downright chilly and windy and rain. LOTS of rain and they said maybe a Snow dare I say that word!! flurry. I don't think so it isn't that cold. It is supposed to clear up as we get closer to weekend so good we are probably going to have okay weather to drive.
My back is still very bad, but at least I can move a bit more. Will continue to be very careful, have Mur rub cream on it, and ice and take my morphine. Whew.
Called the long term insurnace - had to leave a message, no reply yet. Anyway whatever.
We are talking about so much, I am just so thankful that he is talking as a few years back - he would have had anxiety panic attacks and not talked it out. So many diff. senarios. We want to live in the country, but our land is wooded and 5 km off a dirt road in cottage country. Beautiful but.... will I be able to do the gardening I want? will he want to do the upkeep... So many decsions, not a hurry but just now that we know it is a done thing we can talk and decide. Last night he had the cottage/house plans looking at them, now today he is talking apartment - something he never ever wanted. Or do we get a new house that is better for us smaller or a diff one that is laid out to have dad. Or do our own thing and then have dad in his apt till he can't. OH I don't know....... anyway not all of it has to be decided now but do like talking it out.
Well going to go get a bit done for leaving in the am. Had to cancel yoga, I can't get my own socks or shoes on so can't imagine getting up and down on the mat and then having someone there put my socks and shoes on.
Hope all is well with you all and I will be back by sunday if not sooner.
What can I do today to make my tomorrow a better day?
-drink my water
- eat well and remembe while away not to over indulge in sweets
-rest, relax and ice my back
-try hard not to be overwhelemed
-walk when able
thanks for being around for me. and I will be back, with a better back, clearer mind and right back on track! HUGS

Well had my dr apt and he said the letter from the dr about the testing on my legs shows no blockage in lower leg leaving him to think it is my back. He then said what about work, I said you have me off till Nov. he said lets be realistic since the ct scan we know you can't do this, and you probably can't sit long can you.no I have to get up and walk a bit, and stretch. So even though I knew it would come, I really thought he was waiting for the specialist. He is also referring me to a chronic pain management course that is run by dr, nurse, pt, ot and physciatrists. so good thing. He also told me to go down to 2 of the pills if needed watch my flutters. the strange pain in my foot is internal charly horses that are like when your muscles contract and you can see it on your leg, bwell that is the top of my foot. I said good to know as it ws happening again and my mind was starting to freak where the pain is so severe but my toes aren't doing anything.
So a lot of decisions now, but my mind is still not processing it all. I wanted to be off which is true, but still in awe as didnt expect it today, he said Cindy I will support you in a long term off work decision. I will give the proper paperwork ect. so guess he is on my side!
Okay can't tihink about all the decisions. many depend if my long term insurance will continue to pay or I get govt insurance at least 55 % less. But also depends on dad. breathing is going to be crucial with my back and mind a shambles.
so going to bed took morphine so back must be bad and will hopefully sleep well.
