Grocery Day

Friday, November 11, 2011

Felt good enough to go to grocery store. Too tired to do much of anything.
Bill and I are both going to be working on losing weight.He is more motivated than me.But I am going to force myself to do what I need to do and hope motivation will come. I spent a lot of time measuring and bagging snacks and fruits into baggies with calories written on bag. i had some KFC small containers which equal 1/2 cup and put some slices strawberries and grapes in them. I need to get more strawberries as you get a lot for fewer calories. Will fix a few cantaloupe and watermelon bags tomorrow.So I have snacks from 25 calories to 150. Will be back to counting calories tomorrow.
When I feel bad and can't breathe counting calories is last thing on my mind.But I am going to give it a good try.
Our weather is fantastic.Some of you are already having cold and snow. It is going to be a little cooler tonight but will warm up tomorrow.Still no need for heat.Still have AC set to come on.
Bill had a good time with his sister and BIL. So sad to see Lew failing so quick.But at least they shared some time while he still knew Bill.
Ok Tomorrow is start over day as well as hair cut day. maybe a trip to Wal-mart if I am up to it.
Hope you had a good day.

    I'm glad Bill is back and you got out of the house. Also glad that you're feeling more motivated. I got an e-mail from the wife of an old friend whose brother decided to "Cruise out," which I had never heard before. He just had strong sedatives and no food or water so he stayed unconscious. It usually takes seven to ten days to die. The brother and his wife were both in the same nursing home, and she died 18 hours after he did. The news was hard on John.

I'm glad it wasn't one of my relatives. You need motivation to keep going, and as Satchel Paige said - "Never look back - something might be gaining on you."

    I'm glad Bill is back home. I wouldn't be able to use KFC containers because it would be too hard not to constantly think about what might have been stored in them I'd want to eat more than a healthy snack. emoticon

My start over day is going to be Monday.

    You know how to do it...you've done it before...and you'll do it again! It's good that your Sweetie is doing it with you. There's power in numbers! We press on, my Sister!

  Hi Eleni.......
I am so glad to hear that you felt good enough to go grocery shopping. It does you good both mentally and physically to be out and about.
I will pray for both you and Bill. Losing weight is so difficult when you feel good....I know that it is much more difficult when you don't. I wish you both the very best of luck.

Just a short one.

Thursday, November 10, 2011

My sweetie is home so I am a happy camper.The girls weren't suppose to come lastnight but at last minute Brianna decided to come. She made a special stop and got me some clam chowder,potato salad and feta. I had just eaten not long before but I had to eat what she brought. Poor thing had an allergic reaction to something and has itching terrible. But Angel and Brianna kept a close watch on me.
Our new neighbors moved in. Single mother with 3 teenagers and a great big dog. The young boy was out with dog and Roxy was nose to nose with big dog. Boy told Bill his dog was big coward. I hope it doesn't become a problem.
Here is a picture of Bill's sister Jan and Lew. It is so sad to see his mind and body go on him so quickly.And a few trees.




Bill even sent me a card but just got here today.
Gotta go

    I know you are glad to have Bill home...I'll bet he was glad to get back too! Hope Brianna is okay by now. That can be painful and scary, too. I hope you all have had a good day. And maybe Roxey and the neighbors dog will get to be good friends. I live in a neighborhood where about have of us talk each day and the rest just say Hi. However, the ones who are close look after each other. I hope your new neighbors turn out to be as good as our close ones!
Have a good night and a good Veterans Day! emoticon

    It's wonderful I know to have your sweetie back--where he should be. So glad he did have a chance to see his Sister and bil. I hope Brianna is fine by now as I know that itching can drive one crazy. I hope the neighbors are good ones as in my neighborhood everyone just keeps to themselves and we might wave to each other and that's about it. Take Care.

Hugs,

Jill

    Glad that Bill is back at home. It is kinda nice when they do go off for a day or two but really wonderful when they are back where they belong. lol Hope you are doing good Eleni. You do take wonderful pictures.

It is always a little scary when new neighbors in the neighborhood. I will say an extra prayer that you have got some "good" ones.

    Bill and his sister look alike. It is definitely hard getting older when our bodies don't want to cooperate and neither do our minds.
Tell Roxie to keep her eyes open. Hope the new neighbors work out ok. It sounds "scary"

I am so glad that Bill is home safe and sound. I could almost feel how much you missed him through your blogs.
I hope all goes well with your new neighbors. Open communication right from the beginning should help.
How sweet that Brianna and Angel took such good care of you. You trained your daughter well and she passed it on to Brianna.
Take care.

I am so far behind in my sparking. i am trying to catch up but it is slow go.
Angel and Brianna spent the night last night. Roxy loved the extra attention.
I will be glad to see Bill tomorrow. It is a lot harder for me when he isn't around but I just do only what has to be done.
My GD called me today to tell me my ggd has her 1st tooth. Exciting to them but old hat to me.
Bill and I have agreed to work on losing weight when he gets home. He has such will power I know he will do good.
Our weather is still wonderful.
Thanks for being there for me during good and bad times.

Bill made it safely to Richmond. I hate it but life does sucks most of the time anyway.
Brianna came by and got Moxie so no more fish.
Angel is driving me nuts calling so I told her she could come if she wanted.She may come tomorrow.I would rather just be by myself.
Roxy is staying close to me.I think she knows Bill should be here.
Angel just text me that she would enjoy staying tomorrow as long as she can watch her NCIS shows.With 4 TV's in house that is no trouble. Just told her I would let her play on my other computer as long as she cooked our supper.
Well nothing new.Hope you had a good day

    sometimes you just want to be alone. Why can't they get that? Iguess its because they care and they think they are paying you back for all the favors. Hope you are doing better.

    Dogs belong to a pack. They're most happy when the pack is all together, but if someone is missing they will always hang around with whoever is here - which is one reason to have more than one. Whenever the BW is gone both dogs come in here and stay with me. When I'm gone she swears they're waiting for me until I come home.

When we're both home but in different rooms, it depends on who has the most food.

When we leave them home alone they are perfectly good because they have each other. We had one Shepherd that had separation anxiety, and it was a sad sight to see her suffer if she was left alone.

  Hi Eleni.....
It's good to hear that Bill arrived safe and sound. It is also nice that Angel wants to stay with you. If she is a good cook that's an extra bonus. I didn't have daughters and have always thought it would have been nice. I am so close to my Mom and would have liked to continue that with a daughter.
I'm a bit under-the-weather today with a urinary tract infection. I took a sample in to my Dr. this morning and am waiting for the prescription to be called in. Then I have to drive about 18 miles to pick it up. I love living in the country, but we do have to drive everywhere.
Wasn't JR unbelievable last night on DWTS? I taped it and watched their waltz over and over again. If he doesn't win, there is something wrong.
Must close for now.......take care and try to enjoy your little mini-vacation.

  Hi Eleni.......
I wish Bill a fun and safe trip. It will be good to catch up with his sister. When Ken goes away on his fishing trips, I usually catch up on visits with friends and also with doing "Whatever I want to" each day.
Whatever you choose to do, I hope you have fun and that you feel well.
Take care.

    Today was a wonderful 'do nothing' day! I love those days when we can get them! I actually did spray paint some patio furniture and it looks almost new again. The paints that they have out now are SOMETHIN! I got a metallic hammered brown and it looks gorgeous on the patio furniture. I then scraped and sealed in clear polyurethane our rockers. They were getting a little decrepit looking. We are outside on the patio almost every evening now that the weather is PERFECT! I LOVE gazing out into our trees! I think I'll miss the outside of this home MUCH more than the inside if we have to leave it. Take care and keep yourself busy. Bill will be back before you know it! emoticon
