I like my fitbit ultra and my new 5th wheel.

Monday, April 16, 2012

LOL I got my fitbit ultra today and cos hubby was busy and grouchy I attempted to do this myself. First ever thing I downloaded and got set up by myself. Granted it wasn't hard but I have never done anything. I can't even put pictures anywhere but from my puter to here or FB. I don't even put them on the puter. Hubby does cos I say and he does rather than show me. He gets frustrated that I want to write the steps down. OH well sorry.........
So neat little gadget this thing is.
Had a good day, hubby was busy on puter trying to find a pr of helper springs for the truck but then after no luck at a price he wants as they are super heavy and no sense shipping from states Also his sister is calling wanting him to go to her place and help with her taxes, we have a dr apt for dad that we have to take him to, getting a skin cancer spot taken off his lower leg near ankle. We also have to go to get our 5th wheel. Excited as we traded the trailer for a 5th wheel. I feel better with it and hubby enjoys hauling and parking it more than a trailer.
here are some pictures from trailer:

only part with no pic is the bathroom. it is up 3 stairs and then separated from bedroom by a door and also an accordian door.
the front part will go in the bed of the truck of course so it isn't as long to tow and we feel more stable with it on. Now hubby is really trying to convince me to travel south and not just across Canada. I still don't know but we wouldn't be doing that till dad is gone or if someone was able to stay with him.

Well going to go get some dishes done, then do a bit of yoga as dishes hurt my back. Had a good day and hope you all did too. May be back later!

HI back to say that even though we are only going to Ontario this summer, and hopefully across Canada next year. I told hubby that if I am going to do this then I get to find some spark friends to meet and also to go to either scrapbooking or quilting stores. lol so sparkers in Canada and later US I will finally get to meet some of you. lol
Now me and fit bit are going to bed, and read. Hopefully yoga in the morning.

Well good and bad mix but great news

Friday, April 13, 2012

Well good - we got the towing mirrors hubby ordered for the truck so we can see better towing the trailer.
- found two t shirts for Thomas
- ate healthy all day

not so great - Got ticked at hubby and just left some stuff in line at walmat and left. men I had 3 dresses to try on, I didnt like one at all the colour the fit nothing. and he was upset that I didn't come out to show him cos he chose that one. sorry I wouldn't have worn it cos didn't like it. but the stuff I left was toothpaste and a pr of shorts but was so ticked at him just argth. lol
- Lisas dog Nico was running hard in yard, and yelped then came in and laid down all day. So she took him to vet as he was wimpering ect. and 190$later! ( she did get bloodwork done cos wants to get his flea meds later), he has anti inflamatories and hopefully just a sprain/strain not the beginning of hip dysplaisia he is only 3 and the vet didn't think so. so lisa was sad but glad nothing worse.
but GREAT SUPER FANTASTIC news!!! my mamo papers came back and all is well. I don't have to go again for 2 years. I am so relieved. will continue to eat healthy, take my vit d, and exercise. WHEW!
SO no I didn't get my fitbit but I did get the letter, they were the two things I was waiting for in the mail.
and got both scarves done, gave the one to lisas friend and will deliver the other soon.
now to go read for a bit, my back is really hurting across my shoulder blades, just since coming on puter. was sore before cos tidyed up after supper. Only did my plastics and pots cos rest goes in dishwasher but only takes about 5 mins at that counter to have back hurting.
Okay hope you all had a relatively good friday 13th or even a great one!!
HUGS cya in the am.

    What a relief for you Cinders! Poor Nico, hope he's okay hun,
Thanks for resubcribing to my blog, I wondered where you were LOL. Sometimes I get unsubscribed and it's no annoying to miss out on my friends' news!
Thanks for your support on a difficult day emoticon

    Fabulous news for the mammogram! Such a relief not to worry about it. Sorry to hear about Nico. Poor guy! As to getting a 2nd dog - your daughter might want to wait on that. Bringing a new dog in when the existing one is injured is not a good idea. Also, the behaviours Nico is showing are all fixable - but getting a new dog before adressing them means the new dog will also engage in those behaviours... and 2 dogs are four times as destructive as one! I know from painful experience! lol I5 years ago (doesn't seem so long ago!!!) we got a puppy to keep our young dog company while we were at work. The destruction those two wreaked is what got me interested in dog psychology & training in the first place.

Friday 13th but making it a good day

Friday, April 13, 2012

As my background says Mind over Matter so it doesn't matter that it is friday the 13th.
Today is sunny and I have running around to do. Dd sent an email if I am able would I go to old navy and petcetera with her this am as her hubby is getting the tires and oil done on the van. Okay probably but dad isn't up yet so give me a bit. This afternoon we have to take dad to the hospital for a test. LOL he is getting an ultrasound of his kidneys, and has to drink 24 oz of water. so 3 cups and he is freaking out 3 GD cups and I better have a driver cos I have to drink so much water. Sure no problem but what does drinking water have to do with anything and that shows you how much water he normally drinks. lol Yesterday I was 185.4 I saw the 185 but didn't say it all excitedly cos I want to see 185.0 or maybe 1. Today will be lighter day so going to plan what I want to have as hubby allready said he wants sausage stirfry for supper.......... So will make a stirfry for me and use lots of veggie. I will try to plan my meals today. Betting dad may want to go out for supper.We will see.

Okay hoping to get a walk in this eve. Knee still clicking, back still sore but not in the same place, was the right side now the left. argh but going to try walking.
Off to wake hubby, call dd and also to have a greenish smoothie for breakfast.
HUGS cya later

    You have a busy day! I hope your dad does well with the test and that DH feels better soon. How was the walking? Did you back hold up? Good job on continuing to work within the restrictions of your body. Have a good day! (I actually like Friday the 13ths.)

Totally on track today

Thursday, April 12, 2012

Everything seemed to fall into place today. Got what I wanted done. Went where I needed to go and even got the 2 balls of yarn to make scarves for my friend and dd friend. Even in the colours they wanted!
I ate well, got to the cals I needed and all was healthy. Good ratio too. Only thing not great was I only walked to the library and to the mail. But still some strange butt leg issues and hoping that isn't starting up.
Think now will go knit then in a bit go to dd.
HUGS all cya in the morning!

Thinking Thursday

Thursday, April 12, 2012

OKay all. Slept okay just keep waking from dreams ect. I wil be interested when my fitbit comes to see how well I am actually sleeping. Perhaps I am dreaming that I am waking up so often LOL

Today is busy but that's okay.... we are going to the veggie store, pharmacy for hubby for more losenges he is full of cold again. He never gets sick and I almost every year get a cold either spring or fall and so far not much of anything. Knock on wood!

I also have to go to the library, and the fabric store. I want to make 2 scarves. A friend of mine who must be the best person in the world, saw me and wanted a scarf like mine. I hope I can find more wool in that colour. And one of dd friends wants one. (The other friend I just mentioned has leukiemia and is a nurse, she has a port so she can put her meds in herself daily. She is off work right now not feeling well but boy she cares so much. She organized a fund raiser for a friend of hers with breast cancer to get this friend much needed funds and help. She goes out of her way for everyone. So when she wanted the scarf I said no problem. )
We should probably go to the grocery store too and get a few things we need. Will look on line to see the flyers as they won't come yet. Probably tomorrow.
So a spark friend needs a push.................. she needs to get healthy for her health, herself and her family. I am going to meet this person in person this spring if I have my way! We don't live too far apart but as you know life is busy for us both. She has helped me when I had my breast cancer scare and just listened to me moan and groan. I am hoping she comes and starts over. Even if it is with the chair exercises or whatever.
So putting this out here for you Carol.............
one of the sparkers who really motivated me BEMORESTUBBORN said to me one day
What are you going to do today, to make your tomorrow a better day!!?? for some reason that really stuck in my head and reasonated to me. Perhaps it won't be your AHA bulb as it was mine, but hopefully something will stick.
I dont profess to know much of anything on this journey, but hope that you will start and travel along with me. HUGS
and hugs to all my sparkers who keep me going and comign back when I stop, start, get confused, frustrated and yea happy and more positive most times thanks to them.
HUGS all around!!! emoticon emoticon
