Crossing my fingers

Thursday, December 17, 2009

It seems it would cost and arm and a leg to get my treadmill repaired, or even to find out just what IS wrong with it. While I wouldn't want to give up an arm or leg, I do have about 25-30 pounds of fat someone can have......... emoticon

Soooo, after Bob and I take the old treadmill to the salvage yard, we'll be able to shop for a new one. Cross your fingers. I've said about all I can about wanting a new one SOON.

sans treadmill

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

Heard from 1 treadmill repair place (by email) and it looks expensive just have them out....I have my fingers x'd for a new one, but need to talk with hubby again b4 going shopping.

In the meantime, I walk inside my house, and today I walked briskly for 15 min at my grandson's school cafeteria.....nobody was there. My husband and I were waiting for the 1st class of students to come take part in the Santa's Workshop, where the kids buy gifts to give. We spent about 4-1/2 hours on feet, and bending over to take extras out of boxes and place them on the tables. Whew! I was glad to help, but by the time I left, I was also glad to get off my feet! : )

Tomorrow I'll get a good workout at the animal shelter, and we'll see what Friday brings - in addition to grocery shopping. See, I AM getting exercise, even tho' my treadmill is broken.

    Good for you for getting in all that exercise anyway!! This is scary...my treadmill just began making an ominous noise when I lower it from incline. Hubby is going to look at it today. Our roads are such out here in the sticks that my husband does not like me to walk on them--gravel, winding, hilly, narrow, and teenage drivers that think they're at Le Mans. Not a good combination for safety! emoticon

Sunday afternoon

Sunday, December 13, 2009

Last night I went to a memorial service for a wonderful Christian lady, my sister in Christ. I knew her from work, and we were in Bible study together there. (I retired a yr ago) Barb had battled cancer for several years, but thru it all, Christ shined thru her to everyone. Barb always thought of others, not herself, and once she was asked (in my presence) "don't you everget mad or upset about having cancer and going thru chemo?" Barb's reply was so typically Barb, "yes, sometimes I go by myself and cry, but I remember that God is in control of what is happening." Barb wasn't resigned to God's control, she EMBRACED it in joy. What an example.

I miss Barb, but I'm glad God released her from her body of pain and disease. I WILL see her again one day, when I reach Heaven. Praise the Lord!

    What a wonderful testimony to the grace of our loving God. Even when we don't know what is going on or why, His grace is always there for us if we'll accept it. Thank you for this blog post!

Got some mall exercise today

Friday, December 11, 2009

I went out by myself to the mall....it was great to be out by myself, and not have to go where I wasn't interested in going, or wait while someone else looked at something. Since the mall wasn't terribly crowded, I got in a brisk walk - went all over the thing at least once. : )

I found a shirt for my husband, and a blouse for myself (why not!?) and then bought us both Auntie Anne's original pretzels. He was surprised and pleased when I gave it to him on my return home. I've tracked that nutrition, and am determined to eat even better the rest of the day, but it was a pleasant splurge.

Ok, it's warm compared to some people (currently about 38 Degrees F, and humid); but with the humidity, it's cold to me! I had an appt this morning, then ran a couple of errands. I was thankful to get back inside. : )

A very sweet lady I know 'went home' today to Heaven. Barb had breast cancer that spread to her brain then stomach and throughout her body. I know she's now healthy, no longer in pain, and in the presense of Jesus, but I am sad. The comfort I have, is that I will see her again when I get to Heaven, too. God does provide the perfect comfort. Please pray for her family's comforting.

Back to weather: Friday's hi is expected to be at or just below freezing. Brrrr! It's not even officially winter, by the calendar. Guess I need to pull out my sweaters. : )

Y'all stay warm now.

    Condolences on the loss of your friend. My mother also died of cancer before Christmas. It does add a note of sadness to the holiday but our time is not God's time. Be well. -- Lou
