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

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!!!

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!
