DEC 1 DAY 59

Saturday, December 01, 2012

hMMM First day of December, not my fav month at all. As a child I used to cry every Christmas, Mum said she never knew if I got too much, didn't like what I got or what but I would cry. I don't remember that but do remember as a child not knowing how to say thank you. Not physically saying thank you but feeling overwhelmed and so Thank FUL. Anyway I don't know if I ever told her that, but didn't realize that till was in my late 20s or so.
I don't like Christmas in that I often get melancholy not sure why, and then my birthday is new years eve and I get depressed cos I haven't ever done what I planned to do in that year. Not just losing wt, but other things too. This year I have done better on my wt loss, nowhere near where I could have been but considering i wasn't able to move a lot of the summer, I am pleased. I hope to be under 180 by my birthday.

Today went and got 2 flannel shirts for hubby and a long sleeve tshirt for me, ( we will put them up for xmas but they were on sale and i would rather he chose his own)Also got some clothes for Thomas and Eva. So that is done, now just dd, dil and dad. Whatever else we decide to get for each other. I am not sure what hubby wants... me I want some new clothes I think. and have to get boots mine leak and hurt to put on. Was looking today but man, have wide feet and also with that super high sore instep it is hard to find something my foot will slip into.

Only 12,000 some steps today, my L top of my foot, my R two small toes hurt along with a bit of pain in my knee. So we did one long one this am, then smaller ones. Also when shopping only went to two stores. One lady was watching us buy for the kids, and hubby was saying look this pink and that black with the pink little bows match, she said you are so lucky, my husband wont even come walk with me to look and here he is trying to match. LOL I said yea but did you hear him a bit ago... he started to laugh cos he chose a sweater for Thomas that I totally agreed, then jogging pants and 2 tshirts he said now don't unchose what I chose for MY Grandson LOL he was joking but will say if you don't like it cos it doesn't match etc, he gets mad. lol
Ds called this eve and hubby answered, after a bit Thomas must have wanted the phone and he said hi Thomas and then a huge smile, he actually said HI THERE PEPE. then went on to babble about papa. but he has never called us pepe or nan. He still is so behind but will talk some. Having a huge issue with toilet training, he was doing pretty good, now says NO TOILET but yet wants to take his poppy diaper or pullup off. they have never pushed the toilet so nto sure what has caused the change. Oh well.
DD is having bladder issues with Allies sister. she has been on meds for UTI and is back on them and if this doestn work they may have to insert a needle into the bladder to check the pee there. EEEEKKK ouch and $$$ and of course she isn't working.
Okay tonight, I am going to go do my knee exercises which YES I have been keepign up on 2x day, then maybe sauna, and bath then bed and read or sleep May be just the bath not sure yet. Depends what time I get up there. lol
HUGS and talk to you all in the am.

HMMM RV vs WOODS............

    I hope that this year you enjoy the holidays. Years ago we scaled back and removed the stress from them and I enjoy them much better now. emoticon

    There is a lot of build up to the holidays, as I get older I feel a certain amount of stress when it comes to them.

I also do feel like happiness is a choice, and at sometimes, its more hard than others.

However, if its a significant challenge during the holidays, you may want to say something to your doctor. some people get seasonal affectiveness disorder.

    Christmas isn't the most wonderful time of year for many. It's not my favorite Holiday. But every year I eventually get in to the spirit of the season, This year I'm so busy getting ready to leave for out west with our motor home that Christmas seems a necessary burden for me to get through.

    For the past couple of decades, I have had a hard time at this time of year. I just try to have a project to work on to take my mind off whatever it is about this time that makes me sad.

Guess for the next few days the BRRRR is here! -17 C wind chill this am. Man that was one cold wind when we were out. Not much warmer as the day went on. We did go for a few walks but only 1 long one.7 pm and at 12,976 steps so must have walked somewhere lol

Hubby got the elec. done so now has the trim and new elec heat to put in in that room. Granted can't do trim with all the stuff, easier once the furniture is placed some and boxes are emptied. Got the towel rack for kitchen , and one for bathroom. So trim, door trim, 1 door on, 2 closet doors, and level hall and bathroom floors, then put down the peel and stick tile and then done opps nope have to paint he bottom part of that one wall and in the backsplash area of kitchen where cupboards aren't. But certainly coming along even though doesn't seem diff with boxes still.

I drove them to legion, did a bit of stuff, then sat and read. Got a really bad pain right above navel, then it got worse, so much so that when I drove them home and got in house I wasn't able to stand straight. hubby gave me a gas x and so far still pain but burping. Pain isnt bending over bad now. Not sure what it is. Two days ago I washed my jeans and wasn't able to even pull them close to my belly said I have to be bloated as they have fit fine and I haven't gained actually lost 2 lbs. Anyway was fine got a diff pair that fit and wore them. Now this eve I notice I am bloated again. I haven't yet had supper so not what I ate then anyway. Hoping it leaves, have been eating better so not sure. Put my supper away for while will try later.

Well not a lot more, think will be a quiet night, not sure we will be going for a very far walk, hubby will let her out the front but doesn't walk her. Oh well Allie you will survive my girl.
HUGS to all, Anjay hope your pain can get figured out, wish you could get to a naturopath in probably Kentville area although there are others, many in town too. HUGS girl.
Okay off for bit going to go look at magazines and rest. cya later and btw just to let you know I have no gallbladder so not that! lol

    Wow! You've got a LOT going on, girl! A "full plate" I'd say!

We have had wonky weather here, too. Very damp and in the 30's...that bone-chilling kind of dampness. But! By Monday we will hit almost 60 degrees! (Don't know what that is in Celsius?) But if it is windy, I medically can't walk in it ;(

Good to catch up!

Day 57!!!! Brrr

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Early this am, it wasn't too cold, but even though the sun has come out, it has gotten colder, that darn wind! LOL But no snow!!!! Haven't walked as much today, my knee is sore, have my big brace on, but still have almost 6,000 steps now at noon.

Hubby got the wall area cut out, and part of the elec. done, then can't find the box, he was sure we had one left. So this afternoon out to get the elec box, and maybe a new microwave for dad that is smaller and will fit his table he has for it.

Dad is wearing his new pants today, must go see how long they are, after arguing he had long legs, I get a 30 and they could go up about a half inch or so he says. GEEESH that man can NEVER EVER be wrong. Oh well maybe with his shoes he won't need them hemmed. lol

Still frustrated about the mess , nothing seems to change up here still a mess. I got my one litchen counter totally cleared off and hubby stood there and said holy..... I can't believe it! LOL But the rest is a mess. Laundry room and bathroom still tidy LOL

Have eaten healthy all day so far. Noon meal done so should be good till supper as we will be out. Rarely do we get anything when just out shopping, OMG we aren't "normal" Cdns we don't have a Tims cup attached to us LOL

Okay off I go to get a bit done before we go. Hope we can leave earlier than normal, hubby has to watch whatever show after lunch, he is a tv aholic, but there are worse things he could be doing or addicted to!

HUGS cya later

Day 55 good in most aspects

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Evening sparkers, it is bed time for me, - can really tell that it is a dry cold. Yes my knee is still bothering me, but we go out for a lot of med. walks, a few around the blocks. We started learning come and a bit better manners on leash. I need more control of her, as she is getting strong nearly 25 lbs at the vet today and also cos it will soon be slippery out.

So did good on the exercise front but not great on the eating, that will get rectified tomorrow, as I had belly aches and bathroom visits. I really think it could be sugar, hubby thinks eggs. Id on't know I wish I knew my body better. Am amazed at some people that can read their bodies so well.

Got my exrays done and over with, now wait till Dec 4th to see what dr O says. Hoping not yet, and I can work on my strengthening exercises which I did do before bed last night and will do when I am finished this.

Allie had her rabies shot and did fine lol Next vet visit should be for spay. Poor baby gets to wear an elizabethan collar, sure she will be impressed, betting she chews it somehow. One of lisas ( dd ) dog did that and got it off. Allie is keeping my toes warm right now.

Okay buddies, I have to do those exercises, so going to bed now, as that takes a few mins then getting ready, Want to read and it is all ready 1/4 to 11. NIGHT and sleep well. HUGS

Monday sunny cold but a great day if you make it so!

Monday, November 26, 2012

LOL Captain Piccard - "Make it so" Guess that is what we all need to do, Make it so.- whatever our IT is for the day. For me It will be eating healthy again today, be day 3. Feeling good and ready to tackle today. Day 54 of walking streak
I am going to go to the hospital this afternoon and get my exrays done. I go to the spec soon enough that they weill be current ones. Not sure we may go get groceries today, or at least the specials as we have $70 to use in gift cards, we got them when we transferred our prescriptions from Walmart back to superstore, We only went to Walmart cos Zellers closed, we wait way way longer there than superstore and they do it much less complicated. So till Jan 3 you get 10 dollars for every script you move over. YES money in our pocket.

Hubby may do the other door to dads bedroom, or I would rather he get the elec. done so that we can set up his living area. But will see as long as something more gets done, takes way longer now, as dad is down there talking the entire time, watching, suggesting, etc. says well I will get out of the way, but once in while goes and reads. lol

First order of the day as soon as hubby gets up- I am going back up and lay on the bed and do the knee exercises. Can't do them when I wake cos he is still asleep and Allie wants out NOW lol she has been super busy again this am. She has to learn that not everyone has all that energy between 7-9 am LOL not sure what will happen when it snows. will be cute to watch but I have to find new winter boots, and probably trax to put on them so I wont slip.

Well going to go get some breakfast and my cup of green tea. Hope you all have a great day! I am going to enjoy the sun despite the cold and wind. It isnt damp which is what makes it better for me.
HUGS all and have a super day sparkers! emoticon emoticon emoticon
