Some days , it's hard to be married. Now don't get me wrong--I do love my husband--on most days--! And I know that he is a good man! Ive even been stopped by women in town, telling me that they love my husband-and he is a wonderful person. You see , he is a Doctor. And therein lies the problem----
Being married is hard enough sometimes, but being married to a Dr. can be difficult . Doctors always think they can fix everything . I suppose they get it from "'fixing up"" people---- They are terrible repairmen. In fact, they usually leave undone, whatever project they have started. When the children were little, I had a good repair person who I could call when I saw husband heading for his tools and he knew to arrive on the scene as fast as possible, knowing it would lesson his load.
Another problem with Drs. is that they are used to nurses waiting on them hand and foot. This doesn't happen at home, and they never understand it. This can create chaos on some days.
The trouble this morning began when husband decided to set up a new water cooler in our kitchen. It looked good------until , when vacuuming, I was wading through water , running under dog beds and across the kitchen floor.
There was really not much wrong with the old water cooler and when I pointed this out to husband as we were mopping up buckets of water with towels, I knew that my comments had not gone over too well.
So to-day it really is a good thing that we won't be renewing any vows. It's hard to "" love till death do us part"" , sometimes, and particularly on some days.

To-day there was an enormous earthquake in Japan--and a huge tsunami. Everytime I turn on the TV., I witness more devestation. It makes one realize how much we are affected by nature. No matter how bad our day is here, it could be far worse if we lived in any area where this happens.
In my little corner of the world, we had a spring storm rush through to-day, with wet snow , bad roads and generalized messy conditions outside. It really wasn't very pleasant. But we didn't do much complaining , to-day, as we see others in far worse shape.
I can't imagine living through what I saw in the media to-day.
What do the children feel??
Their everyday life and routine would be ground to a hault.
What about people on medications and in need of more?-
I'm sure it will be a very long time before the country will have their store and schools and banks and gasoline stations operating again.
What about the pets?-- What happened to them in all the water?
What about their grocery stores and food supplies?
I guess this must sound weird, but I keep thinking that extremely overweight people must have a much more difficult time living through something like this.
And just to adjust to the changes one must go through in these circumstances, one must be mentally fit also.
These are just some thoughts going through my mind on this day.
We are very fortunate living where we do--
But my heart goes out to all those people affected by to-day's trajedy!-
And now it's supper time and a gal has to eat!-

I can't believe it!!--My weight is once again going DOWN! And its all thanks to Spark!!--Lordy Be, but it has taken over 3 mos., to see the scales move again.
I have to sing praises to Lucy too! She was the one came up with the idea to give myself a Gold Star, if I journal on here (not just in my book--but acturally transfer it onto here --as I should)--plus--- now get this--- (This is the most important)-plus---I do not eat after all the journaling is over with.--That means, , no eating just before bedtime--unless it is accounted for on here.
Let me see, it must be nearly a week now and it is working. I had played with the same 5 pounds for so long.---- 2003---2004---2001--2005--2002.2---- It went on forever!
To-day I am 200.5 pounds----YEAH!!!!
To-night is my Wonderful Women meeting. It's a weight loss group, patterned after weight watchers , in town but costs only a toonie --($2)- There is usually a short lecture and I go , but it doesn't do much for me. In fact I tried to quit once --missed a few weeks---and they called and said they missed me---Ha Ha--THEY---missed---ME--???? Ha HA---Oh well---
One more thing, my knee is not sore anymore. Well, if I move sideways, yes, it is sore, but, I've noticed , with the fewer pounds , it is almost better. Isn't it awful what weight does to your muscularskeletal system??
Another good thing, Bella, our dog on Death row (read previous blog) had another perfectly normal day, so her ""death by injection"" is on hold for another week.-
So, that's all the excitement from around here .
JOURNAL folks---- BUTTON UP THe MOUTH, after supper unless you count it in---
I feel like shouting all this from the roof tops---
A gal's got to do what a gal's got to do, and I just had to share this message with y'all.

It was one crazy day yesterday (read previous blog)---but--to-day has been super good ! Bella , as in German Shepherd dog, was perfectly normal (for her)--- no sign of a seizure to-day---so---guess we shall cancel her appointment to ""put her down""---I might make it for the following week----- dunno--I feel like she is sorta like living on ""death row "" here--poor thing!
Praise be for Spark friends--- Sammy told me they have a seizuring canine, and she deals with it, one seizure at a time. I guess I'll have to wait and see when the next one hits--I don't do well when I see Bella like this---
And speaking of Spark friends, I forgot to add my star to my web page yesterday--(no doubt it was all the chaos!)--- and you know what? Lucy added one for me! She got me to give myself a gold star everyday I journal and don't eat ""post journaling"" and it is working--I'm once again seeing the scales go down.
Spark people are good people!
So that's about it to-day. We are , right now, in the middle of a snow storm. The temperature is just below zero Celcius (not cold) and they say this snow will turn to rain overnight.
I hope all you Sparklers are journaling --drinking water, and exercising. Before we know it, Spring will be here . Oh, I put away a few heavy winter coats to-day.
After all, a gal's got to get ready for the warmer days!

This is Bella, our 4 yr. old German Shepherd. This morning , early, she had another seizure. She already had one Feb. 18th, only 3 weeks ago. Before that she had been seizure free for over a year. It looks like they are now becoming more frequent.
This seizure lasted about 4-5 minures--which is long. She did come out of this one on her own though, which is a good sign.
Husband was here with me when she had this one. He stayed with her, and I ran for the valium, which we are supposed to give rectally, to prevent her having a second one.
Apparently , it is a very bad sign if they have 2 in a row.
After she comes out of this seizure, she is very agitated--disorientated too, and bumps into the wall and tends to fall over. It took her a good 2 hrs to really look and act herself.
I was so upset, (I don't handle this stuff very well!)- that I called the vet, and booked an appointment, to put her down, this Friday coming.
However, a whole day almost has passed and she is up chasing balls and happy as can be.
Me??---I am still a mess-!--I am still shakey and it seemed like the day passed and not much got done--My heart was not in whatever I had planned on doing-----
The vet has ""upped " her medication----added more stuff to it---- and meanwhile we are in this delemma--Should we wait till she seizures again?? Will she seizure again???
Probably will me thinks----
Should we keep that appointment on Friday --or not??---
One never knows what kind of drama each day brings around here.
One very good thing----This morning, before all the excitement, my scales told me that I was down 2 more recycled pounds-----only 4 more recycled pounds to go to where I was before Xmas.
Well, a gal's got to do what a gal has to do, but right now, this gal isn't sure what that is----
