Turning into the crazy critter lady

Thursday, April 10, 2008

I use to have 2 pitbulls but they moved out with my son. I miss their company horribly and usually end up loving on my neighbors big black great dane, named Chaos. So now I have a cat who is about 14 years old and she pretty much sleeps all day and then has moments of madness - she dashes around the house, shoots out her cat door, runs rampant around the deck and then back in, all while making her tiny self sound like a herd of elephants. That would be her exercise for the day (or two) - wait I can relate to this..hmmmm.

I also have lots of birds right now and have several bird feeders. It has been kinda cool to watch them daily, seeing the different ones who clearly are living on our property. So I have been taking pictures of them which makes it easier to look them up in the bird book if I don't know what they are. I have a crow who has taken up residence (I call him Jeckel) and I have one bluejay who daily chats with me - had to name him Tony Soprano because he sits and chatters at me and then stomps the daylights out of my container plants (demanding food!). If I don't give in, he calls in his friends - then I have several stomping my poor plants! The other day I was showing my hubby pictures of the birds and my named ones and he looked at me, shook his head and said, "you do need a companion, don't you". You think the naming of the birds was too much? HA!

This morning I had to get up at 5:30AM to go pick up my daughter who needed a ride to the ferry. I hear a huge crash outside so I looked up, to see a racoon climbing over my deck railing. I opened the door to scoot him away and of course he ran down to the enclosed end of the deck. So I ran into the bedroom to shut off the cat door (since undoubtedly my cat would decide she was all bad kitty and want to go take on the "big cat"). I go back out onto the deck and I see two racoons trying to figure out how they were going to get the bird food out of the HANGING bird feeders. I was tempted to watch this for awhile but hey, I had to go pick up the kid. So I rushed at them, figuring they would drop off the deck since it isn't that big of a drop. But oh no, those racoons were HANGING off the side, pretending to have dropped. Everytime I would walk away or turn my back, they would scurry back up onto the deck rail. We played this game for a few minutes until I finally gave up. I went in to let my hubby know so he could deal with them (like he could not know considering he was trying to sleep thru all of this!).

The conclusion - I need a dog!

    This sounds like me. But I can clearly see YOU doing it. Oh goodness to commune with nature is a good thing. I fixed a fabulous meal two nights ago and had company over to eat it on the back deck. THE highlight? Watching the deer graze at the end of the property. Animals are entertaining and wonderful and it is so amusing to realize they can OUTSMART us. I think the deer also outsmart our dogs!

    this is TOO funny! we don't have racoons here but a lot of crows. i listen to them in the morning when i wake up and i swear i can tell a few of their caws apart - they have one caw that means "pi** off, this is my chimney/antenna/tree", and they have a call for help from their companions when there's a flock of seagulls invading the neighborhood. they have a different vocabulary than the ones in my old home town though.

    Yah, you need a dog for sure. LOL What did you name the racoons? When I lived in Vancouver, BC, we had a racoon who would knock on the front door and demand food. He had a sweet tooth, so I kept dried papaya on hand for him.

Well I reached my goal weight again - one I wasn't sure if I would make it but figured why not try. I figured my body would decide if I could do it or not. Evidently it agreed. So now I am pondering another 5 pound goal. 135 sounds nice! For now, I will just work on maintenance I think. I got a new pedometer yesterday since I was curious how much I was walking in the neighborhood. Now if the thing could just yell at me periodically to walk faster!

I am new to the program and have tried South Beach in the past and lost weight. You were at my present weight and now are at the weight I want to be. I just need some help ! I do not cook well and I find myself . overeating the same thing over and over. I also cannot exercise heavily due to a knee replacement and mild MS. Would you consider being my mentor or motivator .. or if there is someone in the South Beach group that you feel would be willing to help it would be greatly appreciated. emoticon

There is a great maintenance team here -- "At Goal and Maintaining" it is called and there is a thread down in the bottom forum called "six-week challenge to maintain" if you are interested, you should come check it out. I have found a lot of motivation on working at maintaining there and they are a great bunch of girls in there!! The whole team is great -- a good source of motivation for maintenance. You are doing great and you will figure out whether or not to lose more. I struggled with that for a long time and then finally had a body comp ananysis done and that helped me figure that out. Woo-hoo!!! Way to go!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's so frustrating to look down in the middle of the day to realize that's what happened. Hopefully I will like my new one with a flip cover. I hope you will enjoy your new one as well.

Life continues

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

As with anything, life continues to move on whether we are ready too or not. The same goes for my life and we are returning to as "normal" as we can possibly get to. We had the memorial for Delaney on Sunday which was lovely to see all our friends and family come out and support the parents. Yesterday was a rough day for my daughter since it was technically her due date. Today she returned to work which is a good thing. Getting out of the house and around the rest of the world is a good thing. Paying the bills is also good!

My diet hasn't been the greatest, only in the sense of not eating enough and lack of appetite. I managed to lose the 2 pounds I gained at the Houston BBQ Championships plus another couple pounds. Looks like I am settled into a new low weight for me now and I am doing my normal 2 pound up and down.

I have decided to join a gym since I now have all this extra time on my hands. I can at least swim and do the bicycle or elliptical. This means I have to do the dreaded: go buy a swim suit. The two I own are size 16. I need to find something I can get IN and OUT of by myself AND keep up the straps. Life of being bionic..hehe. It would be so much easier AND cheaper if we could just do swimming trunks like guys. Instead we have to try on a gazillion only to settle on the least offensive. Yeah good times - can you tell I am looking forward to this bit of shopping?

    My heart goes out to you. Sometimes you have to be strong for everyone else and wonder who's there to be strong for you. If that's the case, you know that you have a whole support team at your fingertips. At times of stress, sometimes, you need to back off of being compulsive about your diet without going overboard. It sounds like your problem is that you've lost weight and you can't afford losing it because of your sorrow. You need to force yourself to eat a well balanced plan for the day. That includes meals and snacks. If you don't take care of yourself there will be no one there so that you can be there for mom and baby.

    Yes, returning to normalcy helps. I lost a family member in a car accident, and while it was so difficult to return to my life, it helped me get over the fact that everyone else was normal when I was so heartbroken. For awhile, I was just going through the motions, but eventually I settled into a routine again. Life does continue to move on, ready or not. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Enjoy your gym membership, and your swimsuit shopping. Take some special time for you!

    Okay so that adds something to my list. Once per year women should be put under general anesthetic and their pap should be done, dental work, colonsocopy and then fitted for a swim suit. Those are all awful chores that no one should have to be conscious for!
You remain in my prayers Kierae. Grandmas hearts break too. We cry for ourselves and our own child. Especially for our own child

    Last summer I bought a two piece swimsuit. I'm a paraplegic and have been since 2001. Thus, since I've had other health issues and couldn't exercise at many intervals, my muscles have atrophied somewhat. I've been told that water exercise is the best thing for me, but the gyms around here that have a pool are very expensive. During the summer our condo assoc. has a pool near my condo. When my husband helps to get me into the pool, it feels so good to get to the shallow end and walk!!! My best friend who has asthma said that she loves water aerobics and it works out well for her. Just enjoy the shopping trip and the idea of getting a new swimsuit. Best of luck.

In a brief moment...

Sunday, March 09, 2008

I am not a religious person but I am a spiritual one. I do believe in something greater than myself, more earth based I guess and I believe in animal totems. Being raised on or around Indian reservations for most of my life, I learned to respect animals, and be aware of their presence in my life. I know several of my totems, some that have been with me since I was a child. In the last year, I became aware of another which hit me hard with its presence - the hummingbird. Every time I went outside, I would have one or two come visit. Even through the winter when they should have been long gone, they would come out. We all just smiled when we saw them and I just accepted the fact that it would make sense to me at some point.

On Tuesday, I got to take care of Delaney all day while her mama went into the city to tend to business and shopping. My taking care of her just entailed holding her all day, watching her sleep on my chest, and feeding her when she opened her little mouth hungrily. Looking down on her, so tiny, I realized she was my little bird.

Her mom and dad came and took her home about 7:30pm that night. That was the last time I saw her little eyes looking around. They found her at 2am non responsive and the next 36 hours were spent at the hospital in disbelief, processing the fact that we only had her for 10 days. Delaney died at 10:22am on March 6, amongst family and friends.

I appreciate the kind words and prayers and support from my friends here on Sparks. It may not seem like much but honestly it is. For me to be able to "escape" the real life for a few minutes by taking a few minutes reaching out online, whether to chat, or talk diet does make a difference. Again much love to you all for being willing to share

    A month has passed by already and I just read your blog. It feels so inadequate to simply say that I am sorry for your loss. There are no words that can make it better, only time and love shared in your family can do that. Just know that you and your family are being held in the thoughts and prayers of those around you. I hope that in time your memories of Delaney and brief hummingbird sightings will bring a quiet peace to your heart.

Your Angel, Bird.

What a blessing that you were able to spend time with her. One you will treasure forever.

It's official - I am a grandmother!

Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Delaney Luca arrived at 12:53pm, 3 weeks ahead of her due date. She weighed in at 5lbs 6 ounces, is 18.2 inches and has strawberry blonde hair. Definitely will post more when my head isn't so caffeine buzzy. I slept 2 hours last night and about 4 the night before so I am trying to wind down. Too much to do tomorrow.

I did get teased by my daughter when she saw me pull out my baggie of almonds, jug of water, can of v8 and a protein bar. Of course she didn't laugh long when they told her she had to wait to eat - suddenly my food didn't look too bad!

Will update tomorrow when I know the wee one gets to come home.

    Oh my goodness, she's gorgeous!!! And I guess it's probably a good thing she came three weeks early if she already weighed almost 5 1/2 pounds! If she'd have taken her time coming, she might have been a 10 pounder!!

Was she born at the birthing hosp in Silverdale? A friend of mine had a baby there last year, and that place is absolutely wonderful. She was hospitalized for a week before she gave birth, so I spent LOTS of time there with her!!

Congrats again...she's beautiful, you're glowing!

    Congratulations on that beautiful baby! I wish my children 25, 22, 21 would have kids soon, but I guess they should get married first LOL! Have lots of fun with her.

    Congratulations! She looks beautiful. She is so tiny now , but it won't be long before she is running circles around you. What a great new exercise program, "Keep Up With Delaney." Well, get some sleep something tells me you'll need it.

    Congratulations! All of my friends who are grandparents say that there is nothing like it. My kids are 30 and 28 and both dating someone seriously. A few years from now I hope to have the same "high" that you do.
