Despite July being the month from hell, I have done very well. I am proud of myself for finally taking my health into my own hands and owning the journey. Thanks to many spark friends to many to mention.

Let's hope it is a better month for my friends and families and no more death and fire Please!!!
I know that we will probably lose Marlo this month but praying that is the only downer thing that we have to deal with. Hoping the truck won't cost a lot as we have to the warranty now as long as that is covered. Also where we bought it, the service dept is great esp where it is used, they also are willing to help, which they should as it is the original issue again only we were towing this time. Hubby is pretty sure what it is as he has been ona ford deisel forum and learning lots.
So our staycation I am hoping we will get a little trip in, perhaps to visit Wiigarden-nympth and NSMOOMAA. not sure when as they just now called and said truck can't be seen till the 7th. But it is driveable, just not to tow. Thank heavens.
Well have a funny story about Thomas and pepe. Chris brought him over the other night for few mins. He is so so busy. still not talking clear, but can sing row row your boat as clear as day When he wants to mind you! LOL he also held my hand and walked along side of road. Anyway when we went back outside, hubby had picked him up, he said oh look at the big moon.... he pointed to it and started braying to it. OMG Thomas looks at him, smiles that huge smile and does the same. LOL so they did that for few mins. and then he wanted down ran around then Chris went to put him in the car, I kissed him bye and said cya . he says yup cya
then dh lol kisses him, Thomas kissed him. looked him straight in the eye and started braying then roared with laughter. OMG too funny. What a boy. I hope his speach improves as he does well at some words. still very behind but will see.
So have continued this month with charting my food to check my fat, carb, and protein. I am sure I am low on fat which isn't great cos too much protein can change to sugar too. I must admit after being on a junk food sugar frenzy for fist week or so of july, then weathering out the cravings for 3 days, I have once again eliminated the grain and feel so great. Very little leg pain ( still in my foot though) limited back pain, and my up and down moods have not really happened. I have been pretty stable. I am really beginning to wonder if I do have a gluten/wheat intolerance. and no belly bloat at all. Hubby even noticed.
Well dull and rainy but at least not muggy. Not sure what we will do. Hubbys staycation may be lol what I call his reg. days. he said he is doing nothing... well hope we will do a bit of visiting at least.
Okay off to organize my day. was laying in bed this am, thinking of paint colours for downstairs, using paint I have an adding white etc. Marlo had woke me up early, then I slept a bit then woke and started that so got up and was chatting with a spark buddy on MSN.
HUGS have a super day! Good choices and some movement!

Started out good this am, slept well, woke to marlo wandering around. I got up and she looked at me with her ears up, so said want to go for a walk and she did! I do realize she won't get better but to know that she isn't hurting now is so helpful and makes us know we aren't being selfish. So we went for a very short walk but thats okay. She didnt want to eat a lot but that too is fine.
Oh down 3.4 lbs this week. Would have been 5 if I had put yesterdays wt. guess the popcorn I had at legion did me in! LOL better than booze and popcorn.

Well despite it all or maybe because of it all, I slept well again last night. Woke at 6 and she was laying in the same place, looked up and just sighed. I gave her some love and went back to bed. At 8 when I got up, she took her meds to coat her belly and then we went out in front. Only for a few mins and back in. Just wish she could say if she is in pain. doesn't appear to be and the vet said they didn't think so really.
Anyway on with life as it is right now. tears and sighs lots of hugs. I will be okay after a bit just a shock. then when time comes expect more of these tears.
We are going to go camping as long as she isn't worse. She likes it outside and the trailer has only 2 steps and hubby can lift her in.
So still so proud of myself, for not getting those bars yesterday at the store, I certainly could have used any excuse to get them and I didn't. I also haven't given in to the cravings the past 3 nights and am glad for that too.
Now best go get some breakfast, tidy up a bit, Hubby has to put the rails in the truck for the 5th wheel before we go so he may do that today.Okay off I go, thinking weaher may change as my R knee is totally tight.
Talk later and thanks for the hugs and caring.

Well Marlo is back with us for as long as she lasts or till she gets worse. She had exrays and they found a mass, said may have do surgery in am. Then they called back said they found spots on her liver, spleen adn part of it showed her lung, so we had another exray on lungs full of spots. So... no surgery and keep her here till she can. We have meds for her stomach to help her eat and thats about it.
OMG cry and sad, 11 years old on Sunday. Sucky sucky so sad. Our other dog had to be put down from cancer at age 4 which I suppose was worse as she was happy and plyaful but had it in her mouth and couldn't eat. Marlo is so lethargic. looking back we see signs but nothing really that sticks out.
ANYWAY we didn't go out for supper, so we have nothing to eat quick here, so hubby wanted tv dinner, YUK so got him that and got me a chicken terryaki blue menu one, not great either. BUT I saw bars at the counter picked up 2 and thought no, that isn't going to help anything. I got hubby chips and I got myself blueberries. So that is a huge victory as I am almost crying at the cash would have been so easy to get those bars.
So now to tell dd, told ds, and have to tell dad, but Lisa will be as devestated as we are. She and I aer the dog lovers and omg even though we got her when they moved out and Lisa was made at first as we got her not too long after we put our other dog which was Lisas down, marlo is still so special to Lisa too. Anyway...... going now to fart around eat this supper, drink my water and read adn pat my baby.
Happy anniversary to me and hubby as we both have someone to lean on and cry on. I would hate to go through this alone.
