I had to stop and think what day it is. A senior moment.
I actually had to leave my cave today.Had to go get coumindan check and since I was out make a trip to grocery store by myself. I thought I would save Bill a trip. I needed some more tomatoes and grapes. When I got to check out I happen to spot a Heath bar which Bill just said was his favorite candy .So as a surprise I got it. And to show great minds think a like.He came home and surprised me with a cherry slurpee and the sweetest card.
The other day my special spark buddy Bobbi was talking about a neat little lady that bought some jewelry from her and I told her she should find the lady again as she was a grand lady in her nineties. Well I thought of Bobbi today as I let a wonderful opportunity slip thru my fingers.We have this little ole lady that has been seen walking all over Tarpon Springs for years decked out in a big hat with a big blond wig.I bet she has walked a million miles.She is always smiling. I would bet she is in her nineties too. I had a chance to speak to her and I didn't and I have been kicking myself every since I came home.She was coming into store as I was going out. We smiled at each other and I kept going. I could have easily turned around and went back inside. I won't let that happen again. If I get a another chance I will stop and talk to her.
Tonight was grilled veggies,steamed fresh green beans and grilled turkey burgers.

These may be repeat pics but here they are anyway

Nothing much going on. I am not doing great on eating but not doing real bad either.Fluid is still a big problem.In fact I am going to take extra diuretics right now..
I did talk to a couple of my spark buddies on the phone today. terri and Sunny it was nice to touch base with you.
And speaking of that. Any of you that gave me your number and address please send it to me again.I only had 4 addresses backed up when I lost my other computer. Either by spark mail or by my regular email if that feels safer to you. a couple of you have but several haven't. I need to call and see if computer guy can still find them.
Ok I need to finish bagging up the left over veggies. Hope you had a good day

    I'm glad you had a pretty good day. I thought I was in trouble, but I lost six pounds overnight and weighed the same today as yesterday. With luck today will be good for both of us.

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
You sound good, I've not started such a great week. We lost power Sunday and Monday, finally got it back yesterday. I'm not doing great on eating, I'm up a pound. I went to Chick fila today and had 4 chicken minis for breakfast, way too many calories for breakfast, 604 counting a banana and a fruit cup but boy it tasted so good going down. I hurt my knee somehow, probably exercise was too much, I've been icing it all morning. Your dinner looks wonderful! Well, wish me luck getting back on track with food. Talk to you soon,

    I think it would be interesting to talk to the lady with the big hat. I'm sure she's got some great stories to tell too!!

I think I'm coming to your house for dinner! emoticon You don't even want to know what my dinners are lately. I'm beat by the time I get home from work all I want to do is go to bed.

    Yes please do take the opportunity to talk with the dear lady, She may not have any friends and you may just be the person to fill the void in her life. It would be nice of you and you may have a new friend who will come for visits.
On the other hand the stove is full of healthy food and made me hungry so off to make a salad. Love the other photos too, have a great evening. Sandy

So I will just share a few pics I did take today

This is my favorite.

Ok Hope your day went good.

    Hope you are feeling better today. We went for greek last week. There are two restaurants in Quincy - one called Greek to Me and the other called, The Olive.
Both are great but I love Greek to Me. They make their own pita and it is awesome.

We are home from Springfield. No surgery done and it was decided that I would see an Oral Surgeon in Quincy - closer to home and to my physcian. I have a consult on Thursday.

I will keep you posted.

The photos are great.

Hugs, Sunny

I hope you all had a good weekend. Bill and I spent a lot of time together just hanging and that is always nice.We do enjoy just being together. I kinda like him a lot. emoticon

    I had a salmon burger with onion, tomato, mayo (fat free) and pickle chips, then I had half of the second turkey burger that the BW fixed. When I found out how many calories the turkey burger had I a was surprised - they're more than Boca Burgers.

We had storms again last night and got 3" of rain in one and a half hours.
Our yard looked like a lake. Lower temps today (YEA) and no rain in the forecast yet.

Sleep Test was so much fun I get to do it again.!!!!

Friday, July 23, 2010

Yep I failed the first one. Not really failed. Evidently I do have sleep apnea. I was surprised but what can I say. I now have to go back for 2nd half where I am fitted with mask and they determine how much air pressure I need. I don't want to do it but I am so tired of not sleeping. Both my sons have them and Ben said he sleeps so much better. In fact anyone that has one seems to benefit from them.Plus all kidding aside sleep apnea is very dangerous and can cause death. So next thursday night I go back. We all have to do things we don't want that are good for us.
I went to Krispy Kreme donuts and got 3 chocolate glazed do nuts today. Sometimes you just gotta do it. It is now out of my system. Just needed some really good comfort food instead of over eating healthy stuff. Yes I know it was bad and i am sorry but I just didn't care. I enjoyed every bite.
I took a few pictures today of those same buds from yesterday but I was trying to learn how to use the macro part of my camera for up close clear pictures. I have to do more practice. The white roses aren't too bad but could be even better

And this is from yesterday

Ok Enjoy your weekend. Looks like storm that was headed this way is breaking up.We did get some nice rain this afternoon.
Oh I did get my nails done and we picked up a couple of movies to watch.
Our family Wedding and Bounty Hunter. They should both be funny.

I know its a pain to go back and have the sleep test again. But just think how much better you will feel when you can sleep at night. Visualize a full restful night's sleep!

    If you get set up with a machine perhaps Bill will go have the test too. In either case you are doing the right thing. You will sleep so much better (and won't hear Bill snore). I am sure you will have more energy for the day if you get that much needed rest.

    Going back for another sleep test is a pain in the rear, but if you can finally get some sleep at night it will be so worth it! I hope it goes well.

DONUTS - YUM!!! I was craving donuts last weekend so we bought some from Wal-Mart since we were there. They were pretty good. I prefer donuts from a bakery here in town but Wal-Mart's donuts did the trick. Krispy Kreme is way too sugary. I get bad headaches when I eat them. You are right though. Sometimes you just have to do it and get it out of your system.

Your roses are pretty. Is it true they are finicky and hard to grow?

    Hi Eleni, yup sometimes you just have to do it, I'm glad you enjoyed every single mouthful cos now you can move on.
It's good you found out about your sleep apnea - It is dangerous and once you get this sorted out you will sleep better giving you much more energy to get through your day without....... CHOCOLATE GLAZED DONUTS!
Love the pics of the roses and the bug.

    Hi Ms. Eleni's,
You get to have more fun at the sleep center. I know I'll have to get that done too. I probably have it, although, I sleep well most nights, when I was in the hospital the last time with my knee operation, my icu nurse said I was skipping some breaths. I'm going to mention it to my doc because it is dangerous if not treated. How is Angel's hand? I made some dynomite chicken soup last nite using the leftover rotissere chicken, my broth was so tasty. Good for you, you ate the donuts, sometimes you just have to do it and like you said get it out of your system, love the to you later, have a nice evening and weekend.. emoticon

    My Rick is so happy he has his sleep apnea machine, after years of NOT sleeping and feeling tired all the time, he now sleeps like a baby and says he feels SO MUCH better. He did need to give it a week or so until he got used to it. BUT says it is worth it. And, I'm really glad you found out as it is very dangerous.

Love the pics of the flowers. And, thanks for your comment on my blog.

I'm glad we are both still here. Let's stay in it to WIN IT!!!

I won't give up. And, I know you won't either. emoticon
