yea maybe I will..... you see I have been a worrier ever since I was a little girl I would say from 6 on at least. We lived overseas and dad would be late coming home from work ( he was usually at the mess - military), and I would be positive he was dead on the side of the road. That has now carried over to if my hubby is out on his own and late... big time worry. My kids too but now I just try not to think of it. I do however if I hear an ambulance I think okay dad is home, mike is still at work, chris is nowhere near this area, and we are both here. Okay my little family is safe.
So sad and bad as that is, it is interferring with our long term retirement plans, well hubbys more than mine. He so wants to take the trailer and go south for 3 -4 months and I am so afraid to. I wouldn't care if we even had the trailer but that is silly cos I really enjoy it when we are there. It is the driving and towing it even though he is good at it and will only get better.
Anyway we have friends that are in Florida right now, and was looking at her pics on FB and thinking we could be doing this... We do plan to go across Canada to visit friends that we have all over from being military. Even to do that I worry but not as much as going across border. So thinking about trish going and other friends too, I think there is no reason I can't do this....
oh yea there is, we have dad moving in with us, what if... yea been taught to not do what if or to play it out... lisa and mike could stay at our house if need be while we were away or come down every day.
I just was really thinking about how life flies by, and how we aren't getting any younger and yea my back may not get worse but do I really want to wait. SO going to meditate and think positive and this summer we will go a few places, not many as we will be renovating for the most part. Who knows what the next year brings. Trish and Jim took their motorcycle down on the back of their truck, me I think sell ours NOW I don't want it cos I yea worry about that too, even though we both enjoy it, I do think that now my back,hips and knees wouldn't take too lightly to motorbiking.
In my mind I think okay we can do to the states, and will search out a few spark friends and meet them, and go on our way. I was so happy for and almost envious of a spark friend who travelled with her motor home all over last year.
Going to do what I do best, think and think... lol don't have to worry cos won't be this year for sure. have to wait and see what next brings. I think if I was to plan a trip it would help me be more excited but when I mention that hubby says why it isn't now. Maybe I will and then present it to him. LOL that would be a huge surprise!
Off to bed now, going to go read, been having sharp pain in the butt off and on for no reason, can't find a certain way I am moving but it sure hurts. Dr said not my sciatic but my back.
Planning to go to yoga in the am.

Good sunny morning from East coast of Canada. Lucky in my neighbourhood as other parts of the province weren't as lucky and got a huge dumping of snow. Here it looks like spring, doesn't quite feel like it but sun, no snow, birds etc.
But don't get complacent cos it is only Feb!! LOL Mother nature can shock us for another 2 months!
Took the dog for a walk this am, with my brace on. Didn't go too far but it went well. I am up to wearing it for most of the day now. She said to up it a few hrs every day. So far so good. bit bulky but no problem under my jeans. I will be doing that 5 k in June, I will.
Have to get to the veggie store today, hope they have stuff in, Tues is a better day to go. I am looking for spinach and such for more smoothies. Not sure when we are going as hubby is going to start the plumbing stuff soon. Can't interupt him once he gets started. Tomorrow we have to get durarock for the background, then may wait till Thurs to see if tub surrounds go on sale this week coming. Whatever.........
Wonder if dd stayed home from work, her work is so stupid as many call centeres are. She said so many are sick but they say if you are well enough to lay on your couch and rest, then you can rest at your chair on the phone. then they wonder when 3/4 are sick! ARGH!!!! hope she stayed home today.
Okay going to go find some more primal recipes and print them out. Having a hard time with variety and need to learn more.
Be back later I am sure.
HUGS and have a super day all!!!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....read for a bit, fell asleep. Hubby and I got the garbage, recycle. paper, plastic all out to the curb. We probably have too much but wish they would realize we usually have only 1 can not even full and compensate for it, I may ask son in law how much they have and if they can take 3 bags of underlayment to his yard lol Nothing like pawning off garbage. If not will put some by next doors cos she often puts bags on our side. Ticks hubby as he likes knowing he has less than one can of garbage. lol
Hubby made supper this eve, without me even asking! Not really healthy but I really don't mind. Rare is it that he makes supper, he will help sometimes but was nice to not do it. Told him so and he said but was easy, I said but I still didn't have to do it!
So tomorrow is his reno day more than me, as it is plumbing... I will hand and help and remember that when he gets frustrated it isn't really at me! LOL
Hope it goes smoothly- should. then to the store for backing and a tub surround. maybe we will see and wait till thurs when the sales start again and hope for one on sale.
Also have to go to the fruit and veggie store, I need almost everything. I haven't been as good at getting a smoothie every morning and know that it is crucial to me feeling as good as I was. Thanks Karen for the reminder.
Okay off to eat supper and have a quiet eve. Laundry done, put away, renos done for the day, no stores open now, so can check out pintrest or maybe make something for the babies from what I have pinned. some really neat things on there!
HUGS and hope you had a great Sunday whichever way it was, restful or got things done.... have a great rest and cya on Monday!

Well I have a plan for today, hope it comes to fruition! LOL I have a load of wash in the washer, made breakfast and then hope to put wash in dryer. Myabe have to go check dd who has suddenly got a bad case of the flu. then get washed, wash hair and go to bil party! We will be there maybe an hr. lol None of our side of the family will be there cos of the weather between here and PEI and they have a ton of friends so we will visit, then get ready to leave. Fine by me home, and cozy by 9 10 at the latest.
DD may need some help cos her hubby will be working all day. But she may just sleep who knows till she calls.
So off I go to eat and drink my water and green tea.HUGS and hope you all have a spot free day! LOL

Not too sunny today and colder, but not rain or snow, that is supposed to be this weekend.
Today we have to get to hospital by 10 for hubby to get exray, always a long wait so hoping he gets in asap, cos then go to hardware store nearby and get some wood to do the bottom bracing for tub, pick up dad at 11 to take him to the legion for fish and chips- most nights he is getting too tired to go in eve, Flyers come today so hopefully there will be stuff on sale which we need.
My brace seems to be helping me walk straighter and not as much limp. I am hoping so cos want to start walking outside. Hubby has stopped walking the dog again, so I told him if he isn't going then I am starting again in the mornings. I am not waiting and then him say no. It was his not being able to breath that stopped him, so hoping he will say okay and we will start up. I also hope to walk again after that either right after ot later as want to eventually get to 5km for JUNE 10th walk for arthritis!
Dog is barking to come in so better go get her, and get this day on the road. I hope you all have a good day. and ANJAY hope hubby is better, and you are too. a special hugs for you.
HUGS and sparks for all!!!
