worn through the wringer!!!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Any of you old enough to remember the old fashioned washing machines with the wringer?? mum used to let me help her and put them in and use a long wooden spoon to push so you didnt get your hands near the wringer. well I am a ole towel that has been through that wringer too much! this summer cold has gotten a good gripe on me and I am bushed. Woke up with pain in chest and coughing and all the rest so called in sick. I have never called in sick so much as past 2 months! think all the preceding stuff wore me out, then starting a new job so quick and it being a super busy short staffed job has just done me in.
I hope that if i rest, drink my water and take care I can get better quick. Supposed to work today to fri but will see. Too bad if the pay isnt quite as high, wont be there at all if i get sicker.
so today, another sunny warm day, my plans are very simple - rest, drink and do a bit of stuff i want to do. That will be help dh take our old headboard and put on spare room bed, install our new headboard. going to print out some of my inspirational quotes as I saw on a blog entitled my room. I love quotes and have lots but they are in my book not too much help there! and other than that going to drink water, eat fruit and have a salad and fish for meals and read and sleep.
hows that for a lazy day. now to not do more. dh says i cant sit that long. lol but got him yesterday, in that heat i was able to fall asleep which to him meant i was feeling rotten. LOL
hope everyone is able to do something they want to do today and enjoy doing it.
Me I am going upstairs to my craft room and make a plan and get ready. dd and I are starting this in earnest aug 28th - one year to her wedding LOL
cya have a super day all!!

    I remember those old-fashioned washing machines AND the wringers!!! You poor baby!!! It will all feel better when you get to feeling better. In the meantime, just try to rest a lot and drink plenty of fluids!!

    Hope you feel better soon. Summer colds are a bummer, especially when it's so hot and stuffy out that you can't even sit outside and let the sunshine heal you. Lots of water, rest, and extra TLC for yourself today should help.

You brought me back to when I was about 5 or 6 and we had one of those wringer washers in our cellar. I remember the wooden spoon to help push the clothes through! I was such a skinny little girl then. For some reason, it also brought back a memory of watching The Flintstones. Ahhhh, life was so simple then!

Take care of yourself and get better soon. Hugs, Mary

    You really are sounding worn out and Yes, ya gotta rest to get better! Chicken soup or even a pot pie goods good if it weren't so hot.

Gotta clean a bit--shop so my son can eat while he stays here to watch the dog. I go to the beach tomorrow, fo a few days just before school starts next week for me.

    emoticon emoticon. I liked that My Room blog entry, too :). I'm glad you're taking some down time to get well rested, relax, rejuvenate ... you deserve it.

P.S. I'm 48 and remember a wringer washer very well! Fun memory actually - thanks for that!

    Sorry to hear you are not feeling well and that it seems worse today. You need a good ol' fashioned pot of home-made chicken soup.....I don't know why, but even making it seems to make me feel better. So get that chicken in a pot and let it simmer while you are printing out quotes. Rest, drink, eat soup and get better. Hugs to you Healthy4Me.

Today is my day off and was a fantastic day mostly. If i didnt have this sore scratchy throat and now a cough and runny nose, it would have been great. We went to costco and then home and I ran out for extra corn on cob for supper. other than that, we both napped this afternoon, then later put the deck recliner in shade and I read. Funny my foot is sore today even though i wasnt on it much. I am justnot feeling myself cos of this cold. I am not sure if I will call in sick or not tomorrow. I really hate having called a few times now, once whenI had this cold a month ago, and then for my foot but have zero energy and just feel full of cold and blah.
ds wife and dad came for supper. was a good supper but funny to make. I was not putting the stove on as our kiitchen is so hot in afternoon full sun. so microwaved potatoes, and corn and gorge formaned the pork. lol all was fine and we had a good time. Dil belly is coming along lol was nice to see it a tad bigger and catch up with them.
Well think i will go to bed early and read. I hope you all had a great day and tomorrow will be good too.
I have to sometime get back on the good food and exercise track again.!
cya HUGS

Sunny day and lots to do

Saturday, August 15, 2009

Thanks for the responses last eve. I know it was a knee jerk reaction to what has happened with mum. I really wont worry till I find out more and if it is indeed cancer if it is fast moving or slower like mums.
So Thurs I started getting a dry throat at work, yesterday tad worse and now this am. that darn uvula is swollen again. I googled it and said that sometimes it is even from dehydration etc. so will get a lot of water and even will gargle with salt water. I want it gone it is very irritating and sore.
Going to brush brush and brush again my doggy! LOL she is nearly dry, and now it is easier to get the undercoat out. She doenst like this after about an hr but man she looks so nice. white is really nice and white.
Also a bit more housework and thats it. so if i plan it right, I can be done by 1 and then rest for a bit. didnt sleep well, went to bed, a tad worried, then sirens big time at 1:30 and then again at 3. not sure what has happened this time. then heard people talking at 4;30 ( path next to our house) so very broken sleep. but hey its a new day, sunny, going to be hot and I will be glad I am here now.
hugs to you all and I am going to get off here cos I have to get stuff done.

    Have fun making your puppy pretty! We use to put Bubba's fur outside after brushing it out of him. Makes me wonder how many bird's nests are lined with it around the neighborhood - they loved it when Bubba got brushed and would come down to steal it right away.

Have a great day and do try not to worry. Hopefully you can get some rest today.

Now I know I am overreacting right now but man. DD and I went to dads this eve, and started out with I have to have a CT scan, cos they found a spot on my lung and I am not having radiation, and not going in no da** nursing home. WHOW back up here dad. when did you find this out, whats going on.....
Then i watched dd whos eyes were so filled with fear. and dad who you know has to be scared, afte watching and caring for his wife with lung cancer. Geesh mum only died 2.5 months ago. I cant do this now. but then the caring came over and thought neither can dad, and dd just started a new job adn is finally sounding happy. OMG please not now. My wish is for him to stay healthy enough and well enough to go to dd wedding next aug! I dont know how she would cope.

    I came accross your blog and I just want to let you know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I can understand some of what your going through. My boyfriend has lung cancer diagnosed this past Feb. He's 28 ys old. It has been the hardest and scariest time of our lives. He has had surgery and is doing very well right now. There is hope for your dad. emoticon

    I think it's totally normal and expected for you to be scared. With that said, I also think you're doing the right thing telling yourself to not get too worked up yet. Just try to take slow, deep breaths when you get overwhelmed. Try to stay focused on the positive, which includes your wonderful healthy lifestyle changes.

Hang in there!

June 30th mums birthday

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

Well happy birthday mum I am sure she is in a better pain free place now. I miss her but not as hard as I thought I would. I more miss her when I think gee mum could tell me how to knit that stitch, or oh should tell mum. even though it was since xmas that I could really tell her stuff still.
dad was a tad quick and grouchy, could be the day,and also that fact that I have to sign the checks that still come from her insurance to finish paying her oxegyen etc. oh well.
so tommorw will be one month since she passed. wow seems like ages ago. strange eh.
just got home from 3-11 shift, so far so good. a lot of kinks to get worked out, more stuff has to be available for us but that will come. I work tomorrow and it being Canada day it is time and half. then work thurs and off fri. back the weekend. whew not sure about this full time work. but will love the pay for while anyway.
Guess better go as i have to soak my feet, my L heel is causing a fair bit of pain so going to see if soaking it will help. thanks to an xmas gift while back a dr schools foot soak.
night all....
