well dd was sad, her fancy shower thingy, only works for a shower stall so there goes 240$ but then she was happy.... she can at a later date, ( lol when dad forgets all the work of this bathroom) renovate her downstairs which is only a shower stall and use it there, but in the meantime has to buy a new shower head, taps for this one.
So we didnt'get a lot done in the bathroom, I cleaned some of her house and visited with her friend who showed up to visit dd.Her friend was her bridesmaid and she is so sweet a very nice girl with a level head. I hope she comes to spark as she wants to lose wt. So we all had a chat then she left to get her son, we left to go find a new shower head. We also did a bit of shopping so omg my feet were aching again as were my knees. But she found one that is a bit too $$ and one she likes almost as well that is 100 less. going to show her hubby and decide.
Not alot more new, going to rest soon and think will try to soak in the tub tonight. My bed is calling me! not sure about yoga tomorrow as my knees are still really sore. I will probably go and not worry about doing anything on my knees, she will show me variations.
off to rest. I am so beat.

Well this am I am chosing to be optimistic, even though I am not walking well. My knee is acting up big time probably from falling on Thurs. It has very little flexion but it will get better if I watch myself for a few days. Thought oh man I can't even walk, but hey I can do some upper strength stuff!!! WOW
I have a new idea that I am going to try out. One is make a few ideas of things to do when I start the boredom eating or wandering around house. I will put in knit a few rows, tidy bookcase in craft room, do load of laundry, go through house ideas book etc. and put in a small flower pot -draw one out and do it for a while. I have lots of ideas. I can even incorperate do a joyinky walk, do 10 wall pushups, etc.
I also am going to try to take some meal plans and make some breakfast ideas, some lunch ideas and supper and then just have them all separate with the cal amount on them. Choose what I want and then if the cals are allowed I can use that one for the day, at least then I have some ideas for meals. May be a bit harder fur supper if I have beef out thawing or fish ect. but still can work.
I also want to make some workouts, I have a few dvds, but not any that are just strenght training. I wish I knew of a good one for that.... any ideas anyone?? but do have magazine articles ect. and can use them A few months ago I made my bullitin board up with all my cut outs together but alas haven't been down to use them.
Well this 5% challenge is going to make me do it, I have got to get some wt off these poor kneees and back. So thankful it is only 50 lbs although it is a huge amt for me, I so know it is doable.
Okay if I am going to get some of this done, better get off here, We are going to lisas later to see if he can't figure the plumbing issue. even the snake isnt' working and pretty ssure neither mur nor mike want to go on the roof to check the vent line! eeek.

Well I am tired tonight, but had a bug of some sort cos had a few bouts of running to bathroom and back. After about 4 times in half hr I felt better.
Went for a brace fitting and cost estimate to send to insurance to see if they will pay. $1,754.96 omg. and cos it is custom they will not order it till it is paid for. I presume insurance will pay but I will probablly hae to buy and send in the receipts. Times like this are for credit cards..... eeeek. I got a light mauve she called it. does go under my jeans etc. but not when it is summer so figured why a black one. Explained how they work etc. 5 year warranty and I said when I lose wt can it be adjusted, yes to a degree then if it tooo big we send it back, but only till 5 years then you would have to buy a new one, and your insurance will only buy one a lifetime. so lose by 5 years lol
Then picked up dd, who was off today, went to 2 stores, then picked up dad and took him to legion. He got birthday cake and all the ones there sang - he enjoys that. Me I hate that stuff. no attention to me. he is so quiet it is funny he likes that part. then we went home after dinner, I dropped dad off, hubby off and dd and I wen tto find curtains for her newly painted room. Found some, stopped at her house to see if they looked nice and then I came home. I am now caught up on email and going to go to bed. it is 10:30 and I am beat. Tomorrow as long as hubby can do it, he will work on dd bathroom, his back is still sore from lifting me.
Okay off to bed, night all HUGS

Well it started out great. dad called, plow went around the parking lot, plowed us in, I can't get out for my coffee. So told him be after 12 coshubby had to shovel ourselves out and I can't shovel. Okay. bring my coffee and buscuit. okay. So we went at 12:30 As I was getting out of the car, my boot caught on the edge of the running board and between the sidewalk edge. Down I went dropped coffee, buscuits and landed between small spot of road and car. On my worst knee of course. I yelled and hubby said what did you do, man you see me down there! I said my foot got caught help me up quick i am on my bad knee and had no way to push myself up. Well he hurt his back as he got me part up and I was stuck a bit so had to wait for me to get up more. argh. my knee is skinned, he is sitting with heating pad on his back.
So... I go into dads, say I just fell and hurt my knee. "where the hell were you took long enough" I said well said around 12 and I fell so took a bit omore time for mur to get me up. Oh come see this house I found. OMG it is old and looks old has radiators... it is almost 1and 3/4 hr from city and when you get to the city it is on the wrong side. ( halifax/dartmouth are like twin cities and we live on far outskirts of dart. this area is that from from far outskirts of hfx) he then says you wont like windsor once you get there, you will be sorry. I said dad I have no interest in living on this side of the city, we have eto drive throght the city over the bridge to get to dr, or kids. why do you want that. well better than windsor.
I was so sore, my knee was bleeding, Murray is at the car waiting. I said well I don't want to live in that area, dont bother looking to west of hfx. :"wheres murray you leaving, " yea he is waiting in the car, oh thought you shovelled. Dad i told you dr wont let me shovel I cant hurt my back more.... okay bring me back that blue clock. " OMG and I am thinking of having him live with us!!! OMG
He is and always has been so inconsiderate and doesn't think. So I called dd and said don't you say one more word to me about where I take grampa. cos he is thinking bridgewater area!!! WHAT!!! so I am hoping that the plans that hubby sent in the other dayt are in our price range and we will go to the mineville road, best for us all right now. I know I will be fine after thinking it over. and btw I printed out my blog cos too hard going back and finding the good ones! LOL
So easy supper, slow eve, and we are both resting. I will ice my knee and he will heat his back. I was thinking of a nice bath, but only way I can get out of tub cos of my back is on my knees, well won't be on one knee at all for bit! LOL hey maybe I can get hubby to help me out??! LOL he may leave me to shrivel up like a prune LOL
