She and we have sister puppies!!! Not sure when we will get them, have to find a crate for the first while. OMG a puppy again been 11 years since we have had a puppy.

HI allit is 10:30 but I had dr apt for 8:15 got in dr at 8:50 and then after my apt went to dd for bit. so....
Well dr visit - he is referring me to knee spec. again. I had my left scoped 3 years ago june, and it is getting so bad I have to at least wear a tensor bandage to walk. Then other knee is in a brace.
My back is okay so so. he said i will always have pain cos of the arthritis. My nerve pain as far as he is concerned is being managed with drugs. Gee thanks but have to admit it is better, but hoping that is more chiro than meds and it is still there if I stand still. However the other day didn't take my pills and the pins and needles and such were there. So not sure.
this seems to be cyclic and recurring
Well just wanted to write about my dr visit while it was fresh in my head. have to get exray done and wait for spec apt.
cya later sleep well or have a good morning if you are Susie! LOl

Well with the ton of rain last night, nice to wake up to SUN. Always makes things seem brighter doesn't it.
I just got a call from my insurance. She is sending me paper to sign for my declaration of earnings. I said what do I put, do I claim what I got from the insurance...she said put NO and send it back. Also sending a note about how disabled you are for this year. I am faxing a note to your dr to be filled out... I said good I go see him this eve.
So she said during your 2nd year which starts now, we have to determine if you are able to return to your reg. work... )the last person, whom I was glad to not have as she seemed to think I had back taht could be fixed the same as hers) said I wasn't going back to that job for sure. So she said then if you can't do that, we find you employment in your area, that you are qualified to do and able to do that is at least 50% of your prior wage. WHAT 50% less and you have to take it. Man that is low. Anyway I said I have a question that people are asking me.
IF I do take a job cos the company more or less says you have to go to work or we don't pay you, and I take it and get hurt what happens if they don't have insurnace or long term. She said by legalites we have to cover you for the 1st 6 months then you are on your own. So that is way better than I thought. She said that is a viable question.
Anyway fine, I will go to the dr today, saying my pain in my nerves is better but still there, I got super sharp knife like pain in my toes and top of foot which the chrio said are not back pain, and my back is really bothering me today. I don't overexagerate but do let him know onmy day to day scale.
Now to get ready to help hubby, his show is nearly over! lol
Hope all are having a great day! I will be when we start working! LOL

Boy did it ever rain last night, fast and furious so much so that the back area is flooded again. Oh well thats okay I don't have to go there. lol
So was on the puter till midnight last night going through sites and info etc. and then didnt' wake till 9:20 super late for me! Was tired after breakfast but then picked up energy. DD had sent me an email that she told the rescue owner that we would be amoung the ones applying for a puppy etc. so read that to dh and then went to my next email. Few mins later he said go back to FB and look at that puppy okay what He said I want tyou to apply for the bigger one. Okay ...... I tell you - we both know it isn't time, we both miss marlo, but when hubby wants a puppy then he has fallen in love cos he can say no to any I show him. So applied and so did quite a few others. I hope that with dd fostering and also telling them, it will up our chances but if not okay. I was fine with it later on that eve.
that is her sweet face, he has really fallen for her. I liked her sister as well as she is a reddish colour. I think he remembers marlo in this one. But we have lost more than one dog so know there is no replacement.
Food wise, have done great today. I have decided to stay off wheat, not just because of GMO etc but cos I know if I eat it I get cravings, there is no such thing as one cookie for me. I will concentrate on veggies and fruit ( trying harder to limit it or at least to more berries, apples etc not bananas which I could eat tons of...) and limit as I have been processed foods.
So healthy veggies, meat ( less that I have been with more fish Hmm hubby won't like that oh well lol) and frut. and on occasion if out or with co. a dessert which doesnt always mean sweet, could be apple crisp or something not just cookies or cakes.
Exercise will be as my body lets me, which for now is a bit at a time. I am fine with that cos was so bad for so long just happy to be able to move. Also helping with renos and painting. Oh and can't forget my 2 hrs monday eve tai chi! LOL hoping by mid Oct to go back to back care yoga, but will see.
So now have acorn squash and sweet potato in oven roasting and will make some meat in bit. Going to make less meat for me. May steam some green and yellow wax beans.
Gotta go for now but thanks for the replies. hugs and lots of love. I needed it as we all do from time to time.
Cya and have a great eve/day!

Here I am in one of those tooo much thinking modes again! I am not eating enough and not eating particularly good either. Seems I start this after a while of primal paleo eating.
I have been on MDA ( marks daily apple for those non primal paleo souls) for the past 2 hrs reading diff. threads on the forum.
""You should work on listening to your body. Eat what it wants... hell, even if it's not primal. If you find a way to eat that allows you to simultaneously enjoy eating WITHOUT obsession, worry, or fear... that's the "sweet spot". "
found that on there... someone had said that Primal had given them an eating disorder. she was having a hard time going primal and not wanting carbs. People responded some comiserating, some saying well dont do it then some saying suck it up. whatever when I found that I thought That is what hubby keeps saying. but with a diff. he feels that you can have willpower and you are not addicted to sugar, or carbs. I disagree with that totally . but I also agree with what I put up there from the other person.
Seems my problem this past while is I am getting totally obsessed with GMO and chemicals not just that a food may or may not be primal but that it is so totally bad for us. So if I was to not eating all the processed junk and stay away from sugar, then that is nearly primal anyway so maybe I have to change my outlook and think dont eat junk and so much processed. Okay but then it still brings me back to my hardest question.... breakfast....... lol and again for Grokgranny EGGS! LOL
I am not really laughing cos this is getting obsesive and I am not eating. Then I end up not eating healthy either. I also have to make myself KNOW that I am worth the time and I have the time to make that salad. For months I was doign well with smoothie or salad everyday, then the meds and pain were back and now I am wanting carbs.
So after writing this, I will say we had chicken soup homemade for supper, I was starving after, there are brownies on cupboard and haven't had any all eve. and nothign else. Nearly had 2 slices of toast but had no butter to put on it, was all froze. and heaven forbid marg. with all that chemicals.
OMG I have created a monster in myself. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
