Today I woke up very early and not feeling well, I had a sore throat and a stomach ack, put my sweats on and went and got some juice and tylenol and sat down to spark. Not much sparking today, Hardly any spark mail came today and very little postings. Everyone must be out enjoying their day and keeping busy. I wished that I had some place to go but I didn't and didn't feel like going anywhere anyways. So I sparked for awhile, did my weekend stretch for my 10,000 step team. I welcomed 8 new people to spark and left them some advice. It felt good to read the newbies comments, it made me feel better.
When I finished sparking I sat on the chair and knitted for an hour, then got up and walked around the apartment for a bit and repeated the process four more times, just to get my steps in for the day. I am so proud that I made myself get up and do some walking, if felt so good. I then started to work on a crochet project that has been on going for a while now and I finished it today. FINALLY FINISHED IT. It is really pretty.
I tried to post a picture but the system went down so I will try again in a few minutes and if it doesn't work well tomorrow I will try again.
I also got one more sockmonkey done and will be making an outfit for it later. I need to by some yarn for it. So right now I am designing the outfit on paper and writing the pattern on the computer.
My new words program is amazing I can do so many things with it. I am still learning and enjoying the different things that I can do on it.
Ok let see it I can get the picture up now.
Nope the picture isn't there, I guess I didn't save it properly. So tomorrow I will take new pictures of it and post it.
You just have to wait and see what I made.
Anyway, I am feeling so much better, I still have a bit of a sore throat but it is not to bad and my stomach is back to normal, I have been eating real good today. Lots of juices, fruits and water. Dinner was home made chicken noodle soup and a roast beef sandwich YUMMY for my tummy. Now I am finishing my last glass of water, 9 glasses I had today. WOOHOO!
Again thanks for your comments to my blog yesterday, the apartment is so quiet now without Blueberry being here, so it will take some time to get use to it
So where the bird cage use to sit, on top of out bookcase, is now our CD racks and it looks good there. Now all of our CD are together in one spot, instead of being in separate places.
I am starting to get more organised and things are now in their proper places. I still have a lot more todo in the kitchen and in my bedroom but at least I am starting to get more done now that I have all this free time on my hands in the evenings. During the day I am looking for a new job.
On a good note, my EI cards came in yesturday so I filled them out online and sent them off. So we shall wait and see what will happen. I can't believe that is has been a month now since I lost my job, I have sent out so many applications and resume that I am sure something will come soon.
Sunday is going to be another day of spring cleaning, sparking and knitting and getting my cardio in( it is supposed to be a restday for me) but since I was a bit on the lazy side today I will workout harder tomorrow.
Well I think that I have said enough and I am going to read a book and then good to bed. My hands are a bit sore from all the knitting and crocheting that I have done these past couple of days.
I hope that everyone of you have a great sparking Sunday.

Before I get to that I finished designing my business cards and it looks good. I found a cute logo.
Kat playing with yarn.
My business cards are simple. It has my business name, my name, address, email address and phone number and a brief statement of my business. The only thing left to do is to chose a colour for my cards or should I leave it black n white. I am thinking Black n white logo with powder blue printing, same colour as my page I think that will stand out nice.
Now to my dad.
John(brother) and I got to the hospital at 1:30pm found where is room is, he is sharing withtow other guys and his bed is by the window and he has a nice view of the downtown buildings.
He was sitting up in a chair when we walked in and he gave us a huge smile. Then the nurse walked in to take pictures of his heart and we had to leave for a few minutes which gave me a few minutes to close my eyes and hold on to the wall. I was feeling dizzy but I held on enough to walk back in and sit down. After two minutes I was able to focus on dad, he was back in bed looking small and frail. He lost a lot of weight, he is tall and thin to begin with but geesh he is a bone rack now. Can't wait for him to get back home and get him fit and healthy again.
Any ways we staid there for an hour and then we left, I was not feeling well at all and neither was John, he almost fainted as well but didn't.
So as we walked down the hallway it was getting darker, got in the elevator road down, got outside and everything was in shadows. I was sweating and freezing at the same time. Weird, I got into the car and closed my eyes and next thing we were outside of the parking garage. My vision started getting clearer. Had some water and was feeling alot better.
So glad I didn't faint in front of my dad even though he knows how I get. He was teasing me about it and cracking jokes. He was even flirting with the nurses. My dad is a character and a charmer and he is back.
THey had him up and walking and tomorrow he will be trying the stairs. Once he can do that safely he gets to go home. Might be Friday or Saturday.
He still has a long road to recovery but he is strong and he will do it. I even going to give him my pedometer since I got a new one.
After our visit, John and I went to knight n day restaurant for a late lunch and went to a couple of liquidation stores where I got a 48 pack of AA batteries for 9.99$ a great price.
So now my cordless mouse is working better. When I put rechargables in my mouse the mouse dies after five hours or so but with non rechargables the mouse will last up to 6 months or so.
So now I am home using my cordless mouse and sparking. Oh and I finally got all my spark mail and postings as well as other mail.
What I did was I had to reset all my spark stuff and walla it is fixed.
Now that you are all caught up with my dad and me fainting, I can go to bed and sleep like a baby.

I called the Hospital at lunch to check on my dad and the nurse put my through to his room. I got to speak to my dad for five minutes. It was very emotional for me but I held it in, I didn't want him to get upset and he didn't. He told me that he had a quadruple bypass done and that he is in some pain ofcourse and tired. He is sitting up and eating his lunch when I interrupted him. I told him that John and I will come by and see him tomorrow afternoon. I can't wait to see him and to talk to him. It has been over 8 years since the last time I saw him. (A long story for another time).
He told me that I didn't have to come and see him cause he know about me and hospitals but I told him that I will come and see him. The nurses just have to be ready encase I faint and fall. John said that he will hold me up, He has been a rock through this nightmare. My brother is so strong and loving, I am glad that I have him as my brother.
You see every single time I visit or go into the hospital I get dizzy and light headed and I faint. The next thing I know is that I am on a bed and everyone is looking at me. My blood pressure goes way low and I faint.
NO one knows why this happens, it been happening since I was a young child. Some say it is the smell of the hospital, the smell of sickness and or death or even life itself. I even fainted when I visited my BF cousin in the hospital when she had her baby. That was embarrassing, the whole family was their to see me faint.
So tomorrow I am making sure that I eat really well and that I go in slowly and if I start to feel faint I will lean against the wall and hold on to my brother But I am sure this time that I will be fine. I will make it so.
My ROE came in and well as my cards for EI. I can do my cards on the internet. I don't have to go in every two weeks and drop off the cards, I can do it online. That save time and money. I can also get them do deposit my cheque into the bank, that save time and money too!.
I slept for a solid 8 hours of sleep and was still sleeping until the dreaded fire alarm went off. They were testing the system. Guys its working, shut it off already. YIKES!
Fourth update and not to shocking was expecting it:
I am down to 123 lbs again, So today I upped my calories and made sure that I ate something small every two or three hours. So I am working hard at eating again so don't worry. I know within the next few day I will be eating well again.
Yesterday when I went for a long walk they had a health fair going on in the court yard in front of the library. They were giving out free stuff. I got loaded up.
I got a new Ditigal EZ-V pedometer, suntanning lotion 55, pens and a note pad, maps of parks and trials, a play card which is a 10% discount card that you give to local store and restaurant and save of food and retail items, a doggie kit that hook onto your belt loop or purse that have doggie bags in it for the poop pickup - I don't have a dog but I know someone who does so I will give it to her. I also received free passes to the rec centre to try out the swimming pool and exercise room - that I will check out and use in the winter time. I got a red heart pin and a key chain. So I did very well and I am so glad that I made myself go out for that walk yesturday instead of sitting and starring at the phone, after all I do have me cell with me.
That is it.
Now I am off to bed, I am physically tired, mentally drain and emotionally tired but happy. I going to
for another half an hour and then I can
Have wonderful dreams and have a wonderful day tomorrow
