I have been trying to get on spark for hours. Donít know what the trouble was.
Yesterday was a very yucky day.Just did not feel well and was very tired from not sleeping. I donít have these kind of days too often but they do stink when they happen.
Today has been a very good day so far.As good as it gets for me. I slept good which is rare but happening much more often now because of c-pap.
Bill had gotten all my spices out of cabinet for me so I made a new batch of my seasoning jar that I use everyday. He even found me some savory the other day so I was able to add that. So now I have enough to last me maybe a month.
Then I cleared off the table and little cabinet top next to my chair that has accumulated too much stuff since I havenít been going to computer room .
much.Next was a big bag of stuff from bedroom that was on bottom shelf of cabinet that sits next to my bed.I needed the shelf for the heart monitor.It was mostly some cdís and several old address books. So I cleaned that bag out.
Next was to get my green beans ready to cook and they are in steamer and we will have them for supper.
I still have two little piles of stuff on some small tables but that will be quick. I was going to try to get to the big round table but may save that til tomorrow.
I have another big table next to computer that has slowly been piled up. Once I get that done I will take this card table out of living room. I need to make myself go back into the back room.I canít avoid it forever.Besides I miss not being able to look outside at my butterfly garden.
I started the day with great hopes of controlling my appetite and did well until about now. I want to get something else so bad. I hate that this is so hard and that I have gotten so far off track. I know I have the ability to do this but seem to fall short every day. It is just one more thing for me to struggle with. I hate that I have gained back some of the weight I lost. I hate it so much.
Well I also have clothes in washing machine so I better go put them in dryer.On my good days I tried to do as much as I can to take some of the load off Bill.He does so much for me.
And then I am going to go take a nap. Hopefully I can get on spark later

I tried to do this early this afternoon but could not get on spark.So this is part 2

I did take a nap and cut up half a apple/pear to nibble on so I wouldn't eat non stop.
Supper was our veggie turkey burger meal we have once a week. I steamed fresh green beans,cabbage and my brocolli.I found i like the brocolli better steamed. I was having a problem with both my steamers collecting water in the part that is between water and baskets.Then steaming part was going dry.So I had Bill drill some small holes in that part so it goes back into the base and no more going dry in there. Another of my bright ideas.Bill said I do come up with a good one once in awhile. emoticon
I also baked a big pan of cauliflower,Another pan will carrots,yellow squash and a few potatoes.Then i made Bill's turkey burger with onion,carrots,with a dash of my spice and some greek spice. Mine also had carrots,onions and the spices,plus fresh mushrooms.Instead of salt I put some curry powder in mine.These I grilled on my stove top grill. I had a huge supper which I like at supper time for only 500 calories.
I am in great shape with calories as of now. I even turned down some peppermint candy ice cream which tastes awesome.I have more than enough for a good snack later and still be in great shape. If I blow it tonight I will be upset.
I am very aggravated at the TV.There are too many shows to watch and tape. I can tape 2 and watch one.I had 4 things on at same time.Luckily one repeats at 11 so that helped.But I looked and it is a mess all week.Too many good ones coming on.Why couldn't they spread them out so we don't have months of nothing to watch and then too much. you can tell I do enjoy watching TV.
ok Here are some pics of my orchids and desert roses.
First is a piece I took off the big orchid,then a small orchid,then yellow orchid,Then 3 white desert roses

OK I think I have made up for not blogging yesterday. Am watching Dancing with the stars.So far Palin is the worse. But still more to come. Oh my goodness.Florence Henderson just flashed her boobs making fun of the Situation guy.I almost fell out of my chair,it was so funny.
Ok This has turned into a very long blog.Hope you are all doing ok.

  I had to take a nap after reading your blog........You were a very busy lady!!!
I can empathize with the to-do piles. I have to tackle them daily or they over-whelm me.
I agree with you on all of the new shows coming at once. I was watching and taping late into the night. I did watch DWTS all the way through and was very impressed with Jennifer Grey. She made me water up a couple of times.
Take care and have a great day. emoticon

I forgot to mention your flowers.......they are beautiful!!!

  Oh my tonight has a lot of good programs also, Biggest looser is back it does help with of watching inspiration although not realistic, This is a fun week to view the new shows will try to walk on the treadmill during some of them to ease conscience for watching too much tv.
Your plants are beautiful, it is fun watching your orchard bring out more blooms. Do you replant the yard for the fall?
So glad you are sleeping better it is so essential to overall health. Have a wonderful day.

    So much to do... so little time. Still it's better than nothing on the old tube.

Your supper sounds so nice and healthy. I do know what you mean about getting so far off track though. It's not the meal times that are bad for us (you and I). I think it's that mindless munching and on unhealthy things no less.

My no unprocessed rule that I am trying for the week, has helped me, but I have slipped a bit there too and I know that I can do better. I think instead of feeling bad about how we are doing we should focus on remembering just how good it felt to be successful. We WERE successful and there is no reason we can't do it again. Sorry if I'm rambling. It's as much for me as anything.

Have a great day! Glad you're feeling better.

    What is the deal with "The Situation". That was very strange. Also, Florence Henderson has a great pair of legs. She looks terrific for her age. Palin was painful to watch. Bless her heart, she was so clumbsy. My favorite was Jennifer Grey - once we got past all of the Drama. I would imagine it is tough for her though. she did an awesome job!

Hope you have a great day today.

    I wanted to watch DWTS but forgot it was on until it was too late. I think I'll have to set the DVR for future and watch them later. I usually watch TV in my bedroom while the boys watch TV in the living room. Now that Addison is here, we're all in the living room and share the TV. Tonight is wrestling night so I told them they could watch it and then I remembered about DWTS. Oh well.

You were busy, busy, busy today. All I managed to do was wash a bunch of bottles, do dishes, and start a load of towels. My house looks like a hurricane came through it.

Sounds like you had a big healthy dinner. We stopped at Subway. That's Jason's idea of cooking.

Hopefully tonight is another good night for you.

Busy Saturday

Saturday, September 18, 2010

It has been a busy afternoon.We all know I don't function in mornings. emoticon
We almost got out of grocery store with a big bill but we lollygagged around too long.Ended up tossing in an extra $40 worth of stuff for freezer. Oh well
But I have just about everything taken care of.Bagging stuff up takes awhile to do. But I got 2 heads of cauliflower,and 1 head of broccoli cut in pieces and bagged. Also got a big bag of black grapes and green grapes washed and dried and back in bag.All tomatoes are washed and in bowl.Kale has been washed and all big stems taken out. I got some gingersnap cookies and they are all bagged in single servings and ready for Bill to put out of my reach along with measured chip baggies.Also have a bag of romaine leaves that are ready to use. I forgot to get more celery so Bill will pick that up for me tomorrow. I do have a large bag of green beans to take care of but will do that when I get ready to cook it. It takes time to get everything done but makes it so much easier during the week.
I also got 2 applepears or pearapple not sure of right name.I got one last week and it was really good.
I slept the longest with c-pap but am still waiting to feel great.
Oh Bill found the best thing in the paper today. They have opened a butterfly garden in the next little town south of us in Hammock Park
The paper says it is the home for 35 species of butterflies,with 11 beds of 225 plants in 40 varieties.They also sell butterfly plants that are displayed. We are panning on going next Sunday. I am hoping it won't be so hot.Today was grand opening and hopefully next week won't be so crowded.We are going to see if Brianna wants to go with us and take her camera.
I am still off track but have done a little bit better today.
Ok Time to get some supper. I was going to have baked chicken livers but Bill didn't get any.He was headed to get them and got sidetracked. emoticon
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
I'm unable to add this comment under Monday's for some reason. Anyway, I hope you stay good on diet. Your food for the day sounds good and you're staying within your calories, it must be that night eating that gets you. That time can be tough. I made lasagna with ground turkey and low fat ricotta on Sunday, turned out good. We have alot of that left. Last night, we just had cheeseburgers. I wasn't feeling like a whole lot, I ate one, husband ate two. We'll prob have leftover lasagna tonite. PT came yesterday and so did the home nurse. I'll be released from home pT Thursday and nursing on Oct 1. Nurse just comes 1-2 times a week and takes blood level for coumadin and PT puts me through bending exercises and walking outside. I'm doing good, my bend has gotten to 108, should be 120. He thinks I'm doing good considering I just had surgery 2 weeks ago. have you watched the food truck race? I watched them, it was pretty good, I also like Guy Fierari. I used to watch Adam Rich but he has gotten ridiculous with his challenges. Well, signing off for now, I hope you have a wonderful day,

Margaret emoticon

    I was without internet for about 36 hours so a little behind. We had a strong storm Saturday evening and it took out the service. It was up this morning but had to head out early.

Talk about early, I had an 8am dentist appointment this morning but I made it and
it went well. They did the impressions for the new partials so one more appointment before we leave for the Canyon and then oral surgery when we return. I am going to end up with a
plate on the top and a partial on the bottom. New teefers - whoopee!

    hi Eleni, the butterfly garden sound like fun.i wish they have something like that around here. do you just cut up califlower and broccoli and put them in bags and freeze them or do you par cook them first. i,m glad you had a better sleep.never had chicken livers.just cow liver for me. i,m cooking up some veggies in a crock pot i got onions, celery, potatoes and carrots, parnips, and i,m trying bowcoy i think that is how it spelled it,s like celery.so it,s like atew but less juice and i,ll be puting the greens in from bowcoy and cut up some fresh mushrooms when everything is cook. i hope it all taste good.plus i bought fresh loaf of bread 60% whole wheat. so that will be for supper too.i also bought 6 new tops.well have a wonderful day.

Up Way Too Early For Me

Friday, September 17, 2010

I can't believe I got up at 7am. I did sleep better with new c-pap headgear. I may go lay back down for a short nap.
First thing I find when I open my laptop was that a very sweet Spark pal has passed away.Pat Farthing BORROWEDANGEL1 . Another reminder of how important mammograms are. I have been expecting the news.
We are still having temps in the 90's. Seemed strange when I saw one of my sparker buddies was having temps in the 30's.
And speaking of spark friends. My cyberdaughter Robin just gave birth to a beautiful little girl named Addison. I am glad all went well.
I did not do a blog last night which usually means I have had a bad day.It wasn't too bad but after supper I ate a whole bag of baked chips. Why? I have no idea. Bill came out here and looked in bag when it was almost empty.I just told him to not say a word. He turned around without saying anything. So I wasn't in mood to write a blog. Guess I was feeling guilty.
But I can say that was first time I have done that in a very long time.And the last time too. Today is a new day.
I did get all my med baggies ready and have my huge box of meds out.So maybe I will work on doing meds for awhile.Or maybe go take a nap. Will just see where my mood takes me emoticon
mmmmm I guess thats it for now. My old brain doesn't work real well this early. I am still way off track but I know I can do it. I have to keep reminding myself. No Beat Ups-Just Get Ups and to Git-R-Done Talks cheap and bull sh*t walks.(one of my dumb sayings)

    So sorry to hear about Pat. I haven't had a mammogram yet but need to get one for a baseline, especially since my mom had breast cancer.

Hey, at least the chips were baked!! That's a plus! emoticon Jason gives me that look when he sees me eating chocolate but he knows better than to say anything. Since Addison was born, he has to remind me to eat.

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
How are you? You gave me idea for chicken today in crockpot, it's almost done but now don't have much appetite for it, I ate some soup and cheese and crackers as snack and now not hungry. My appetite sort of up and left, I'm sure it will be back though. I lost appetite last time I had major surgery, I don't know what it is, the meds or the anesthesia but I didn't want alot of food for at least a month afterward, same thing going on this time too, not complaining too much, I've lost about 8 lbs. I don't want to gain it back either. We took my son out for lunch today and ate in the park since it was so nice. Well, that's about all for today, I'm walking pretty good now without the cane around the house. We went to grocery store yesterday and it about did me in. The walking was abit much, I was glad when it was over with, well, talk to you later,

Bill is in back room trying to beat my Mahjongg score. He plays it under my name.We just have to know what we score.It even lets us both play at same time on 2 different computers.
Yes we are competitive with each other.
I slept good until around 5 when c-pap started slipping and then had slight nose bleed again. I called today and they are bringing me head gear that attaches hose to center instead of side.I think that will work bettter
.I got a variety of small things done today.
Got everything back next to my bed after phone guy fixed line. Also have the heart monitor set up. Bedroom looking more and more like a hospital room.Only much more comfortable.
Fixed a his and hers crock pot dinner.I love using my 2 small ones that I can put what we like in our own. It was excellent. I have some of Bill's leftover for a snack later.
I also got a basket of Kale and pole beans and a few brussel sprouts cooked in steamer. We will have them tomorrow. I left them in the baskets so all I have to do is stick it back on steamer for a few minutes to heat it up.
I have a baggie of leftover Kale that I didn't have room to cook. It takes a while to get all the steams out but I now do it all at one time.Makes it easier when I use it.
I got a load of laundry done and emptied dish washer.
Now I need to get all my little medicine bags straighten out as I have to make up my meds again. I have got spoiled here in living room.I have a card table to spread everything around on.
Ok Master Chef finale is on and I want to watch it. I don't have a favorite.
Then later it is Top Chef finale. I also have no favorite there either. My favorites never win anyway emoticon
I did lift my hand weights today. I guess that is better than nothing.

Thanks so much for the card. You are such a dear and it came on a day I really did need some extra "coping" skills. Dentist appointment this morning but it went well. Two more appointments beforel we leave on our trip and then when we get home, the work will be finished.

I am happy with what she is doing so far and my dental phobia is not as bad as it was.

Thanks again!

    I don't like the new puzzles on the Facebook Mahjongg. They make my eyes go boogly eyed.

Your room may look like a hospital but I'm sure it doesn't smell like one. Thankfully I have flowers in my room and that's all I smell unless they bring a nasty meal.

I have no idea if / who is doing laundry at my house. When I left on Monday (very quickly I might add) there were dishes the sink, laundry needing to be done, and a bunch of other things. It'll be interesting to see how trashed the house is when I get home tomorrow.

I had a rough night last night.I just could not fall asleep.Finally around 6 I did fall asleep.i got about 3 hours and then an afternoon nap of 20 minutes.
Verizon came and got the phone outlet working so I can connect up the Care Link for my ICD. Bedroom looking more and more like a hospital room. Just a lot more comfortable.
I checked on the big orchid.It is starting to bloom.The last pic I showed was buds only.Here it is today with blooms starting to open.Another couple of weeks and it should be full.

Bill got the new chair put together.He is sitting where I was sitting when I passed out.I woke up where the chair is in picture.Just missed hitting my head on the cement
Well Bill cooked supper so it was take out from Publix. emoticon
Hope you had a good day. Will be watching crazy Jeff on Flipping Out tonight.

I will give you mine too, should I put it on this form or do you have an email address I can send it to? I'm feeling so much better this week. I wrote you last week but computer died right before I was able to send it and it was lost. My therapist is pleased with my progress, I get the staples out tomorrow, 32 altogether. I had a hard time in the beginning, I cried about everything the first week. Last week, I started feeling better about everything and this week, I'm walking with cane and even taking short walks down my street. My appetite is picking up but I still don't feel like cooking much. We order out at night which is getting boring and I eat cereal for breakfast and a sandwich for lunch. I'm definitely not gaining and looks like I've lost alittle. My husband needs a knee replacement too but he has too much heart issues going on. He has coronary artery disease on top of joint disease so they really don't want to touch him. Anyway, I'm so happy to talk to you again and I've been keeping my spirits up. I'm pretty proud of myself. I look forward to hearing back from you, tell your husband hello, he's looking good, take care, talk soon,

Hugs,
Margaret emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Orchids are looking good! Wish I could grow them. I think I live in the wrong part of the country...or something. I have a friend here who has them, but as I tell her, she can grow flowers from a stump!
Chair looks good! Comfortable! And Bill does a good job of showing it off!
Hope you have a better night!
