Man it is too close to the day and I am so not ready. I am so so so tired too. still tools laying around,still everything to wrap, still baking to do. Oh well still meatpies to make OMG thats work but hubby said he will help as he wants them. lol
So we went to the meat market and fruit and veggie store. Then home, then went to legion where hubby took this picture of me. Figured I would share as some have asked for new pic and hair and last one rememberance day wasn't very close. Anyway not a bad pic as they go. lol

Then we were leaving and dd and I decided to run to the store. I wanted to find one thing for hubby and then needed baking powder, molasses ( for his meat pie ew) and coconut. So got it all and home. Got home and hubby said go check your dad. He needed help down the hill, I took his socks off and he was going to bed. He is cold and then not. So went down and he was awake and okay. I will check him later. I hope he isnt' getting sick, as he has been coughing and not sounding great, and then hubbys cold, even though hubby hasn't been down there much. Anyway don't need him sick anytime but not now.

NOt a lot more, going to put a roast in the crockpot to cook overnight for the meat pie, will boil the chicken and pork roast tomorrow. Don't think it will be long before I am in bed, really tired and I dona't want to catch anyones colds. I just got over that one from Oct a week ago!

Okay hope you all had great days and sleep well. For those waking up, have a great day!
HUGS to you all love my spark friends.

    Hope you're all going be okay.

Pete is still visiting the loo way to frequently, he is suffering, I can tell as he's gone quiet. If he just has man flu I get it in the
ear all day long "I'm dying". But when he's bad, like me he shuts himself down.
We were due to go out to lunch at the Plough tomorrow, can't see that happening now. I am extra concerned because of his diabetes and not being able to eat.
I've got him some rehydration potions and keeping him on toast, boiled eggs, a little porridge (hardly any yesterday for brekkie)and baked potatoes.
I'll get him to check his bloods this morning and if necessary I'll call our chemist for advice.
So much for a Happy Crimbo emoticon

I will not sigh, complain or nudge hubby when he keeps me awake with his snoring from his cold. I will be so thankful that he is in bed beside me and breathing. My old co worker got the call this am that her hubby had passed away. 2 stories one he just dropped dead at work, 2nd was that he said his legs were wobbly they got him to hosptial and he died. So no idea but doesn't really matter he is gone. I am pretty sure he is abbout 65 -67. I know she is a year younger than I am and he was a fair bit older. So hug your hubbies this eve......

I had one really messy kitchen today. Had left the dishes from the other day and night, then made cherry balls, then Elizabeths ( a savory snack that an African friend Eliz. gave me the recipe for) which take time ( have to make biscuit dough and roll it and cut it make filled turnovers)So got all that done, entire kitchen cleaned. We took dd to costco and all I got was eggs! lol not even any samples lol Stopped at walmart to check for a doorbell for dad and light for under his counter.

Then we went out after supper to get our new recliner, hubby is relaxing in it watching Xfactor finalle. Has it too loud for me, surround sound on but do like the cowboy and the young girl. group is okay. I wish the man to win as the young girl is awesome but young enough to get another chance. but whatevr they all will get a recording thing of some kind.

So think I will make a cup of tea and have a bath, didnt have one the other night. I took an arthrotec at suppertime instead of this am hoping I can rest better. So epsom salts bath and tea and book. AHHHHHHHH oh maybe even sauna first.

OKay night all and say a little prayer for my friend susan and her 2 kids as they start the figuring out and grieving process. HUGS to you all!

    Such sad news and so close to the holidays, I feel for your friend.
My DH snores; he had a rough night last night Cinders, he has the TOM TITS (you work it out LOL) and he's sweaty one minute and ice cold the next.
I've left him to sleep while I go and get the Christmas food shop today. Taxi awaits.

Have a good day hun emoticon

    So sad to hear that your friend's husband passed..........My daughter's boyfriend's father passed away at his job, too. He was working in Louisiana and happened to be by himself when he had an apparent heart attack. Some coworkers came upon him but he was already blue.......they called the ambulance and got him to the hospital where he was put on life support. They took him off the next day, and he passed away. He was only 50.......
You are so right, all of us need to hug each other and express our love for our family, because tomorrow may be too late! emoticon

Day 77

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Well since I left my fitbit on the charger for the better part of the day I won't have an accurate step count. I will say it has rained and poured and very windy and we haven't gone far. But also dd and I got dads area done a lot more!!! he now has his kitchen table up, his puter table instead of a small table and a bit more room. So that is good. Also means that almost all is gone from my area but a lot of tools and stuff still along with a vanity and toilet still in boxes in my dining room but hey i can move that over to the corner and put a table cloth on it! LOL

Got my baking started, doing minimal in comparison to other years but thats fine by me. I eat the majority anyway. take some to sil on boxing day and then keep some for hubby and hope that if I get a biday cake it is small enough to only share and not have any left.

So now going to go tidy up the kitchen, then think I will do my knee exercises and have a bath, my back is aching really bad this eve for some reason. My knee hasn't been sore in few days. go figure I don't know what makes my body tick! LOL

Sunny cold sunday, day 74

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Woke up this am, after not sleeping well, and hubby snoring from his cold, Allie woke me at 6:15, took her out and said back to bed girl. She was quiet till 7. Woke with headache but went away quickly. Then lol walked Alile, and she was into everything, I was getting so angry with her, got home and ds called to say can you pick me up at 8:30( He had called night before to see if one of us would drive him to Hfx to get his car as their xmas party was last night). So left here at 8:20 got to ds, and Thomas said well hi there nan! LOL finally called me nan. Then Chris kissed him bye, went and kissed Eva, and Thomas said Papa kisses for Mama, and kiss nan. Finally he is starting to get some words together. Slow but doing it.

So took ds to his car, almost there and he said OMG I don't have my keys, SO back we went and got him back to his car on time that he would have just made it to work. Whew, and ALLIE went with us, and she was in the back part of the wagon ( we have a subaru)from 8:20 till 9:40! She was so good, didnt try to get over to the seat or anything. At one stop light, I looked in the rear view mirror and the lady in the car behind me was making kissy face at allie as she was sitting up staring out the back window. lol cute

Got home, walked, Allie and hubby and I went out for breakfast. that was after 11 so then we didnt' even think about lunch and suddenly we were both eating candy... then choc. then belly ache, then eating it again DUH!!! why was I eating it, didn't make any lunch and there was easy stuff here to make that was healthy. I haven't a clue but I was eating it anyway. So had a healthy supper and a bit of stuff since. Geesh. Not really a binge as I didnt go nuts with a ton of it, but certainly way way way too much, but more so the fact that i was acknowledging that it was bothering me and I still ate it. Can you say sugar addiction!!! for sure!

Well tomorrow e have to find our xmas tree... we went to 3 diff. places to find a small one and we saw only one. So tomorrow 1 place and if not I hope that one small one is still there. I took 3 boxes oout of the living room, just stuck it all in one box. And also got 3 from downstairs empty only put the stuff on the shelf that goes around the room but at least he can move around more.

Hubby is talking to his mum on the phone with Allie laying beside him on the couch. Poor hubby is so sick with this cold, I just wish he didnt snore so bad as there is no where for me to sleep. lol

Okay gotta go and get a bit of stuff done. All the recycling is out, the cardboard is done but will take it out in the am. So ready for tomorrow, going to get things moving on these boxes. No idea where to put all this and dad is still insisting on having it all then going through it.

OHOH... dd found out about Allies sister and her bladder or kidney stuff. She has an infection but nothing that can't be fixed, no perm damage. So get this !!!! She is on the meds for another 6 wks this stuff from the vets is costing her 45 $ for 4 days!!!!!!!! has been on it a long while now. Well we saw that the pharmacy can do pet meds... she went to ask and the guy had to do some figuring but he did and he has pets so knew and the entire amt for the entire 6wks.......cost $48.00 vs 520 at the vet!!!!!!!!!!!! so she is estatic as she is off work and watching her pennies imagine the difference. WOW so glad for dd. and zuri too lol

Okay now off to get ready for bed. Hope I sleep as didn't sleep well last night much.
HUGS all

Day 73 walking streak

Saturday, December 15, 2012

First off I just have to say how sad and at a loss for words for anyone that has lost a child or family member in the shootings yesterday. I am sure there are spark friends that have done so and my heart goes out to them. I just can't fathom why people resort to this, utter hatred etc but even killing yourself is bad enough but to ruin all these families lives - there is no reason that is ever enough.

So today we are doing a bit more downstairs as far as I know. Hubby is catching a cold, and he is a strong man, doesn't complain much about pain other than a cold. He gets extreme anxiety when his breathing is comprimised and is a real neeedy boy lol So hoping that he is up to a bit downstairs, cos if we can get the trim done, then we can get the stuff out to the shed and table up and boxes undone! That will give dad stuff to figure out where to put and then say did you throw out my..... Sigh but no I didn't. lol

Going to also get him to bring up my totes full of decorations and do that even though dads stuff is still up here, I will work around it. I am also hoping to get my Xmas tree today it will be small and goes in a bucket and on a table so hoping allie doesn't care. HA HA never saw a puppy with such a "bad" streak lol omg this am she had 2 walks under her belt and all she did was run around teh house, under the chair, behind the other chair, run ip on couch bark bark and of course hubby still sleeping dad is up but just barely. OMG she ran into her house, out and around the table, then crashed into the recycle bins OMG if she wasn't barking be fine! LOL

it is cold sun, but bit of snow flakes. I also going to check my list of paleo desserts that I can have on hand for xmas eve and when sil comes over or 2 of them. lol

Off for now hugs and have a super weekend!
