Marvelous Monday

Monday, February 27, 2012

Well it is only after 10 am but sun is out, it is very very cold and we are supposed to get snow tomorrow. Make the sun and nice day count! I have an apt at 11 for brace adjustment, she will have to cut more off the lower and upper tabs as when I pull them far enough, the velcro is too long. LOL maybe my leg got smaller in just this 2 wks lol
Right now, then get ready to go to physio place a mere 5 min drive from home. Be back later!

YAYAYAYAY Saturday was a great day

Saturday, February 25, 2012

Woke up and daughter called, wanted to walk down to bring her dog for walk. So she came down, we watched fat, sick, nearly dead. She was like EW GROSS, but said if you want to do it try... went home, called me. Mum found you a free juicer on free cycle to try. So there you go, no excuse. Later called me said Mike and I are going to do this too. LOL I hope she does even to detox. Anyway found the reboot site and told her to read some stuff - don't just think you can make whatever juice and do whatever. So not sure how this will work out, but will most def. let her use it as she needs it bad. Overwt, hates her job, can't get preg.... vegetarian for many years, but a carbaholic so not healthy, lots of processed so go for it girl.
I may go down in the am, and use the juicer while they are at work and even start with 2 a day and eat a healhty veggie based supper. not sure but will see.

Weather was above what the norm is, sunny and super windy, winds were very high but we didnt get the snow. We may get snow tomorrow not sure.

Ds got evrything in place for his new car. LOL the dealer got the wrong one in! higher model and got him to pay 20 more a month even though they wanted 40. He said can just do the 20 didn't want to go higher but also has stuff he would like put on after so okay.

So good day, ate well, and spent time with dd, and walked with our dog and her an dher dog back to her house, turned around and came home. our dear dog is nearly 11 and we had a slow walk home but hey I did it. next time will walk with out dog. I will work it up to the end of her street and back by mid march if the weather holds.

HUGS sparkers hope you all had a great day. On to day 2 of the weekend!

OH what a phone call,sad and scared but willing to be helpful and hopeful

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

My very good friend who helped me so much when hubby was having his bad anxiety stuff and who is very private and quiet ( we worked together when I lived in the country), told me today when I called her, that she has a 2.5 in spot on her R lung, and small one on her L and something in her brain. OMG she is 58. She had breast cancer a few years back at least 8 or so and has been fine. She smokes, has bad lungs, the terrible smokers cough and now is so scared. Her first husband was alcoholic and after 17 years she finally left. Her dd has only started being near her and with her the past 5 years or so. She just didnt' believe it was her dad causing it all. Her son was fine. So background she met a man and they were friends for about a year or so, then got married. 3 wks after they were married he drowned and she pulled him out of th water and wasn't able to resucitate him. So depression, then right after that breast cancer. So still even though it has been 10 years or so since he died, she still is very much grieving often needing help with her depression. That is fine, every one takes time.
She has a 1 year old granddaughter and now is so afraid she is going to die and not be able to watch the baby grow up.
Scares me, cos my mum died of lung cancer that went to her brain. omg I sent a prayer to mum that can she please take some extra care of Tanna. OMG she is the person that would do for anyone and is so good. I emailed her dd my phone number and said call me if you need visitor or to take her anywhere, to sit with her while she is at apts. anything. tanna has my mumber but forgets to bring it with her.
that is my blog. please say a prayer for my friend Tanna

    This is rough. Tanna is very lucky to have you as a friend. Just stick with her. Do little things that she doesn't expect, like dropping off food or flowers or sending her a weekly card. Those little things means a lot! I am praying for Tanna.

    Will keep your friend in my prayers. God has brought her through alot so far. Just keep praying for her and be there for her as you have been. It is rough watching some one go through this. I have a very dear friend that has been fighting cancer off and on for 3 yrs and the Good Lord has blessed me by allowing me to be able to help her in any way I can. Praying for you also to have strength in this time of need. emoticon

    I hope she'll be alright. Cancer treatment has come a long way in the last few years. My dear MiL battled lung cancer last year - and is now cancer free. Hopefully your friend will have the same great outcome.

OH man broke my blog streak

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

I didn't blog yesterday! argh. oh well, I was busy helping with the finally put in tub then we went out, then got dad took him for pancake tues. and home and watched biggest loser. What a bunch of nits that black team are. All but Chris I like her. Anyway.............
Today is dull and rainy, first dull day in quite a while but wish it wasn't raining as we have to go get the drurarok and really didn't want it to get wet. Also have to buy 2 interior doors cos the sale ends tomorrow and those 2 shouldn't get wet but not as bad as the durarock. Oh well it isn't far from store to home.
I have been doing well with wearing my brace. I noticed yesterday that my knee hurt a bit, not ache just hurt. Then of course, not thinking, cos was only off and on that it was noticible and put it down to helping with tub, so while watching biggest loser I rode the bike for 20 mins. YAAYA me, but this am, my knee is really hurting, It even woke me from my sleep a few times. Right now don't have brace on and just iceing it a bit. I will be fine and will still do some movement today. Maybe some upper arm stuff.
Guess will go get my smoothie ready for the am. Really glad to be back at that daily again. Somewhere some how I got off that, guess when no store had any spinach, I have yet to find one that sells kale on reg. basis and I didn't have stuff here so ate other primal stuff. But back to the greenish smoothies, salads and good stuff again. Have lots here. The small veggie store- I got 2 doz eggs, and rest veggies and got 5 bags for 20$!! at the reg store 2 of those bags would have been nearly that much.
Okay buddies.............. off I go to get my day started. It will be a good one cos I am saying so! HUGS ALL!!!

Monday evening probably should journal

Monday, February 20, 2012

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.
hugs all

    I used to worry alot and then I realized... the things I worried about almost never happened & the things that truly knocked me off my feet, I never saw coming anyhow.

I've driven across Canada (between BC & Quebec) six times now & it is such a beautiful drive. Canada is an amazing country & each province has it's own beauty. And... we live just 10 minutes off the transCanada... so I say "go for it!" and start planning that trip now.

Serenegen" by Metagenics. It is a natural anti-anxiety supplement. I took it for years. My doc put herself on it first, calling it her "happy pills!" Her doc partner in the practice told her flat out, "We don't do something about this anxiety of yours soon, WE as a team, are done!" She put her on it...then doc put me on it (I wanted off of meds). Now I'm done. Drink chamomile tea. Research other teas that are "calming." If you drink coffee and it gets you jacked up, start to wean yourself from it.

You may have underlying health issues causing this extreme anxiety. It could be hormonal imbalance!
