Great things to believe and say to yourself!!

Saturday, February 04, 2012

I got his from an email from the womans way, they do retreats and some online teaching, I have never had the opportunity to go to one but get their emails....


Tell yourself:

Everything will work out

Things will get better

You are worthy of great things

You are loveable

The time is now

This too shall pass

You can be who you truly are

The best is yet to come

You are strong

You are beautiful

You are enough

Going to be a great weekend

Saturday, February 04, 2012

After I get done with dad. I promise myself and my adult children that I will not make them feel the way my parents have and still do at 55 years old. I know from counselling that it is my feelings and the way I interpet them, but there is strong validity for it. We bought a new to us truck which will give us use of our trailer again and some time to get away now that I am off work. This also saves us the 3,000 to put it seasonal and drive to it, as we won't be using it a lot and is only 50 a month to put it where we can get it anytime. He is going to question our minds, tell us we are stupid, think we used his money( which is what bothers me most as we didn't touch it and also this is 32 $ more a month and our bills are paid) I know it is not his biz. but they have both always made it theirs. I am using dads money for renos for the house so he can move in with us - his wishes. and he constantly says it is your money anyway I am always very mindful to say I will never take your money etc. (yes when he is gone it is mine and I would rather he knew what I did with it and he agreed )and even when we got the taps for the new baathroom half price I called and told him about it. So till this is done I have been on edge. First the house I wanted then this.
After I go in the sauna, hubby gets up and I shower, we are getting a few groceries, dad needs some too, so will get those for him and then go talk to him. DD and I went over yesterday adn did his dishes and tidyed up. He got home as we were leaving and was walking from his car and had to hang onto me for balance and for a min I thought he was not sure where he was and also was going to topple on me. So high time we get this reno underway... Monday is start day. I know it will be a slower process than I want as hubby said only so much I can do a day...
Now on to today, going to sauna, shower and get some groceries, go to dads and also change his sheets while there, maybe go to dd, maybe drive her to daughter in laws, then do whatever we want which I am sure will entail a drive in the truck. I am loving that it has heated back and butt warmers, makes my back feel so good.
Yoga sunday!!! missed it for the past month can't wait to get back to it.
Okay off to sauna!
hugs all

    Yep I can understand how you feel about your dad! I am getting all this from Colin and he is my husband !!
Could your dad possibly be suffering dementia ?.
Have you had him tested? he would need a catscan on his brain and undergo some simple tests with his doctor ...
If by any chance he is ..
You will feel much better realising that it isn't directed at you personally it is the condition ... Hugs Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Relationships with our ageing parents, especially as we have to take on the parenting role is challenging; you still get the "comments" that can disolve your confidence in seconds. Hang in the Cinders, bite your lip, a lot of it is not intent on hurting, just their way. You can't take back a hurtful word.
Have fun with the renos, rest up this weekend and store up the energy, it'll be a great workout!

    That parent/child relationship seems to stick even when we're adults. I like the response "we're doing the best we can..." that WHITELOTUS gave you. I could never have either of my parents live with me, so I give you full credit for doing that for him (even if he doesn't appreciate it). Have fun in your new truck.

    I totally understand where you're coming from. I never felt that I was on an adult to adult level with my dad and hate to say we were glad he passed just before mom as he was not an easy man to be with.

Try to go in with these are his insecurities and he probably doesn't mean to make you feel bad. (what my mom always said to me). You just want to say--we're doing the best we can dad and you'll just have to trust us. I never could get that calm/brave to do it though.

When Dad wasn't happy, no one was happy. Make the visit short and sweet and don't give him too much time to grouse. Be ready to say "Well, we have to go run errands, see ya later."

How do we know, and who can we trust, grow your own garden

Friday, February 03, 2012

I don't have a whole foods near me, I don't even know if they are in my country, but know that my local grocery stores are probably no better.
eye opener anyway.

I read on here so many that shop and love that store so just putting it out there - from another blogger. I just find it interesting that the govt is presumed HAHA to be there to take charge but it all comes down to the almighty dollar............

Grow your own garden!

    It is 100 miles to a Whole Foods from me. We grow as much of our own food as we can. We started our seeds today in the greenhouse.

    Always pays to read the small print on labels.
Organic rarely means organic, "free range" is another misleading term!

Sun is trying to shine day 2

Friday, February 03, 2012

Good Morning sparkers!!! I hope you are all having a good day or a good nights sleep!
We go pick up our new to us truck today. We certainly got a great deal and now we can take the trailer places and not have to pay nearly 3,000 to keep it in one park all year round. Also can get reno supplies without having to pay to have them delivered. Hubby of course is like a little boy, me not so much. I am more thinking after, we go get truck, then go get dd, and then go to the hardware store. LOL I have gotten more decorating ideas and even garden ideas. I am hoping that since I don't have to factor in the "work" issue and can take my time and pace myself, I may get a garden in here. Our country house had an acre of land and 2/3 was gardens. Here I have yet to do anything cos of my back and knees.
Also got word that insurance will cover my brace 100% - the deductible of $25. no problem so have to go make an apt to get that fitted etc. I hope that helps cos then can start thinking about joining volksmarch group again in spring.
Best go for now as have to get ready to leave.

Oh walked yesterday with hubby and dog didn't go too ffar as wind was wicked and my back is still not up to par to its normal bad self.
so emoticon and can say this is day 2.

talk to you all later. have a great sparkly day!

Feb 2nd Day 1

Thursday, February 02, 2012

Okay, after a mini major meltdown yesterday and eve, with moods and feelings all over the board, I went to bed sad, dejected and just blah. Hubby came up and said you are going to cry again, don't feel so bad, we were staying here and have great ideas and plans you like doing this stuff and our mortgage isn't up for renewal for 2.5 years anyway. This will work, and you know we will decide in 3-5 years from now... So I said yes and we talked, discussed, cuddled, I cried some more and it so often comes down to I want mum. So yes we are staying and I am not even going to think of looking. We start renos here Monday. Hubby said I said first week of feb. and I want this weekend to have off and monday we will start by moving rest of stuff upstairs to new workout room and then pull some carpet out.
I called the realtor back and she said well it is subject to the sale of a condo in Portland hills which is super $$$$. I did think OH! then said NO don't get excited.. I told her if it went up when we were ready, then I would call her. Of course she wanted to have my info said no, we are not ready to even list. So have onone bothering us and today I will go buy the paint for the kitchen so I feel as if I have a project too.
I am "starting over" again too. One cos my back made me stop the exercise valid but still, even not being able to stretch made it all impossible. My back still catches when I put my socks on but much better now. and two cos I have eaten well still, but last eve for supper we had a can of stew. ew processed and didnt taste anything as good as my homemade. I had a cup of hot choc. too watered down but ew. So back to thinking good about this house, eating clean and not adding extra stress that we don't need.
Meeting dad at the bank ( stress enough!!!) in half hr. He is moving an act so all are at same bank and thinks I have to sign, well probably not but he wants moral support. Mum did all banking stuff, he gets very anxious then gruff.
I wanted to get dd counter and sink in, that is all that is left at her place, hubby said I will do it, but want to start here. I do too but want to know hers is done! oh well that's okay it will be done, sooner than later.
Now off to brush my teeth and get the spinach out of them! LOL
Hope all of you have a good day and don't give yourself added stress.
BTW my smoothie tasted great!
HUGS emoticon for me!!!

    Nice that you have a hub that will sit and talk you through a sad spell. It's hard not to feel let down when you saw that house. If it is ment to be, it will happen.
