WOw foggy thick fog in the city. I can't even see the building behind me at all and it isn't that far away. The roads are a mess of slush, took Allie out and yea my waterproof boots leaked immediately. Must find rubber boots that fit me. Oh well it is warmer, just hope they get this mess off the roads before it gets colder. YUK

So didn't sleep well after 4, 5 ish. My back a waist level is so sore when I lay down, rather I am on my side, back, whatever. I don't know what this pain is so had small pillow behind me to semi lean into, pillow in front of me so I don't lean fwd which I like but is bad for backs and physio said not to, and the one in between my legs. LOL trying to get comfy was nuts. Good thing hubby sleeps well once he does cos he would have been what are you doing. Ended up getting up at 6 cos was just so sore. Oh well could be worse so will be happy it isn't any worse.

Today hubby has dr apt, and dil asked if we are going to costco could we pick something up for her. I want to go over anyway to take the Woody doll to Thomas and microphone to Eva. My spark buddy ordered and sent it to me, as wasn't able to get it in Canada. I am so excited as Thomas LOVES woody.

Poor Allie wants to go for walks, I went once and really don't want to go again, now she is on the deck barking at what I don't know as you cant' see anything for the fog. lol

Today want to start organizing things to do with kids when at my house, ie homemade things to do and also want to organize my old handwritten cookbook, it is falling apart and a lot of them I never make. So have things to keep me busy and not eating mindlessly.

Now to wait for hubby to get up and have breakfast. My SierraSil has been taken so far no diff at all, actually having more pain and diff pain with the reg. hmmm will see hasn't been long will take this bottle for sure, not paying 35$ and not use it unless it made me ill.

Off I go to figure some breaky, I am really craving an omlette. Maybe... as trying to only have eggs once a week. Mabye this am. as probably pancakes this eve with dad and hubby at legion.

have a great day all, I am certainly going to try!

Marvelous Monday

Monday, February 11, 2013

I am starting this week with a smile and a positive attitude. I know it doesn't do any good to be down, and my pain is manageble today so far so smile at the sun and shiny snow!

Had a healthy breakfast and got the kitchen tidyed, and bathroom done. Going to go sort clothes in the closet, not that I have lost any wt, at all, sigh, but stuff that I don't wear anyway. Getting rid of some and sorting some. Also want to start knitting the bottom panel for nico again... now that I got it all unravelled yesterday.

Busy week, today we both have hearing tests, I went while back but my R ear was plugged and she wanted to check it cos it was down a bit. Hubby is gong cos it is free and he sometimes has a hard time, but his is when there is background noise. Will see, hoping neitther of us need one, as they are nearly 2,000 $ and we don't have that even with insurnace. Mine covers 500 geesh. Tomorrow hubby has reg. dr apt, wed massage, thurs chiro and we hope to get down to visit sisster in law some day this week. We told her let us know a good day and we will be down.

So all this as I wrote before has made me think of all my inadequacies, then stop and think All that is not wrong or bad with me, hubby and I have been married 36 years this year and if it was all that bad, he wouldn't be here or would have stayed away when his depression was the worst and he did come and go so many times. Thanks to a very special woman and spark friend I know that I am loved and cared for by her, and others. I so love my spark friends and lol yea my hubby too. lol

Allie is loving the snow, but man there is too much, she struggles to get over the banks so she can walk and sniff but I don't want her up there cos I can't climb them to clean up after her just in case. She is out on the deck running back and forth with her ball she found under the snow. What a girl and her poor sister can't play cos she can't get her belly wet for rest fo the week due to her spay this week.

Okay off to tidy up closet. Love that chore. cya later hugs and again Thanks buddy I love you too!

Still snowing sunday

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I thought that the snow was supposed to have stopped overnight, but here it is still snowing, big lakes with the sun shining so is very bright and pretty. Almost blinding bright! The drifts and snowplow additions lol made the front of the driveway a mess but hubby will be up soon to shovel. Dad will have to come up through the house as the side is full up with snow.

Taking allie out was interesting. The roads are plowed now, as yesterday they did a half a$$ed job but I had to try to climb over the drift that was past my knees to get to the road, with a puppy that is so excited, and a back that had just woken up! But we got out and she ran around ( on leash ) the road, then we got down our street to the main road and we had to walk on the road there as the snowplows had blocked in the sidewalks totally.

I would imagine hubby will be up in bit to shovel then will still want to go to breakfast. LOL as I type I hear him walking around up there! Allie will be happy, she loves her dad! LOL Dad will be happy as he wants to go out. ME well I want food, ratther it is here or restaurant as per hubbys sunday routine now, I don't care. I have been up for over 2hrs now so am hungry. The pills I am takign I can't eat right away anyway so that helps.

Okay off I go to see whats up for today. Back later if need be with a new weather update LOL

Sat snow day

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Well as far as I see and remember this is nothing but a big ole snow storm so far, like when we were kids. Hubby remembers often having to climb out the upper floor windows so they could slide down to start shovellilng out. Nothing like that now but a fair bit of snow and wind. Enought o make walking Allie a chore but she LOVED it, just so happy to bury her face and come up with snow covered wagging her tail. What a nut. Sorry her sister who also loves it can't go out in it. she got spayed yesterday so can't get her belly wet, so they had to shovel their deck, and a path and area for her to stay in.

I had a really bad night, super lot of pain, no way to get comfy at all. Got up and moved around slowly and took my sierraSil and took Allie out only for a bit as was no way to get even to the road as the snow was too high in front yard.- high as my knees or higher not fun wading in that with a knee that gives out. Came in got laundry started, came here for bit, then went in ktichen and started a stew and went back to bed. Well figured I would end up getting right back up but no was able to actually lay down and relax enough to be still, hubby rubbed my back and then later I had a warm shower. Got up and had a very good day pain wise and productivity wise! Did at 4 pm go sit in living room to unravel nicos coat once again, and back started so switche chairs and still hurt. So was sitting for half hr and man sore for about 2 hrs. Been only on here for few mins then getting up and stretching or walking around.

I hope to sleep better tonight. wish I could copy paste my fitbit line for sleep it was really red and inturrupted. As soon as I wake around 3 which seems to be the norm I am going to rub my back with this really cold stuff,can't remember the name but is in a roll on and got it from physio, it seems to help and then perhaps I can fall back asleep.

Also last night OMG my forearm was so itchy I was nearly crying I get that evryone once in while but was so bad, I was just scratching like a madman. Some bloody spots and just scratches. hope I don't get that again tonight.

Think I will go up and do a bit of exercise maybe stretching and core or hmmm upper I do enjoy that but don't want to mess my back before bed. lol cos I sometimes get pain in shoulder blades after. The wall pushups really do me in - but at least I am starting somewhere!

Allright have a bit of time before Allie wants another walk, she is up laying with hubby. she still fits ( just) between his legs laying on the lazyboy pulled out. She will be sad when she doesnt fit cos she cant' lay on the loveseat with me we don't fit. She could curl up but doesnt.

Okay hope all are well, did well today and those in any storm just not this one, stay safe. i am thankful we have power cos apparently there are quite a few without.
HUGS off to call my sisterinlaw it is her birthday!

    At least someone loves the snow. I'm glad we didn't get any. I hate it. My cousin who lives in northern Indiana used to do the same thing with the upper story windows. Freaks me out to think about it. I'm not a winter person.

I hope you sleep good tonight and have a better day tomorrow.

    You must be in the Northeast, that is where we hear the storm really hit! I live in the Southwest (Colorado), and we also got snow overnight, but not nearly what hit the NE! We woke up to about 2 inches in Colorado Springs area we live in. We need the moisture, and I love our "Snow Day's" as long as it is not 8 feet of snow (which we have had before). Our bad snow's almost always come either early in the season, like September or October; or late in the season, like March and April. Though we have had a few Thanksgiving and Christmas Blizzards that have interrupted Holiday Plans!

    Dear Healthy4me,
I found your blog to be motivational. Hope your lil girl dog keeps getting better. Will be praying for your relief from pain and itch! I understand the dry skin issue, I get that too and I HATE it!! Sleep helps everything, so I hope that happens tonight.

"Ten mucho cuidado" means "take good care"!

Great day continued

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Well last night I slept okay and woke to a day with the cando attitude. I have gotten everything I wanted to done today and did what I promised myself and my progress not perfection team mates.
I cut a date square out of the pan, and wrapped it and put it in the fridge. Still there folks and it is 7:30. I said I will eat it and only that as my sweet if I really want it. I also was going to incorperate the I can have it later technique and so far so good.
After hubby is done downstairs, I will go up and sew the sweater that I made nico this afternoon. My mil had given me a blanket to use for him for a coat, so once I knew the front of the other fit I just laid it on the blanket and made this one. But the knitted one is too big. OMG that dog! lol SO will take the bottom out again and re do. It is 10 rows then about 25 rows decreasing every 5th row. anyway....... here we go again. good thing it isn't hard and it is chunky yarn so doesn't take too long.
Just on here to say I have done well and that I did what I said I would do. now to go do supper dishes.
hugs and cya tomorrow
