Nothing much going on. Did get the grocery list done ahead of time. I am trying to get out of habit of stock piling too much. Not easy habit to break.
I need to get my hair cut badly. Just too lazy to go.
Bill got new hearing aids.
I did take a few pictures. Most of my pics are always just back yard stuff




These are some cute ones from various places.

  Hi Eleni.........
Your pictures are NOT "Just Backyard Stuff!!!" Birds and Blooms or Better Homes and Gardens or any Nature magazine would be proud to display YOUR pictures. We who have gardens know how much work goes into getting the quality of plants that you have. OK..........I will stop scolding you for now....... emoticon
I wish that I could talk Ken into getting hearing aids. He had two hearing tests done......very thorough testing and they had the same results, so we knew what we were dealing with. Then the hearing aids were put in his ears. I was told to go into a different room and in a normal speaking voice I said, "Where should we go for dinner tonight?" and he answered........"Let's go to Uno." I couldn't believe it!!!!! I have had to repeat everything I say and raise my voice for years and with those little miracles in his ears, he could hear me. I thought for sure that he would be so thrilled that he would get them.........and then he talked about the price and he just couldn't do it!!! I was so disappointed!!!!! Then he talked to a friend whose Mom and sister both have the same brand hearing aids that Ken looked at, and he told Ken that they have to replace them often.........that did it for Ken and he gave up the idea. You are lucky that Bill will wear them.

    New hearing aids are always a reason to celebrate. But it's not good if you MUST get new hearing aids - they're always sort of pricey.

Doctors visit

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Had a regular visit with doc today. Bottom line was he said I was a miracle to be alive and I had far exceeded my life expectancy. Also any other patient with a heart like mine is in and out of hospital all the time. Never had a patient like me. Told me to remember this when I get depressed over not being able to do a lot and having to take so much medicine. So I guess it was a good visit. He did say there are some new amazing meds being tested overseas that may help me to eliminate a pill or two.I now take over 70 pills a day. So i guess I need to do more of what I always tell others and count my blessings more.
Here are some facebook cuties



I love this one

Hope these made you smile

  Hi Eleni..........
Those of us who are lucky enough to call you FRIEND, could have told your doctor a long time ago what a MIRACLE you are. I am so glad that I met you here on Spark and look forward to "talking" with you each day. I can imagine that it must be quite a chore to take that many meds every day............BUT..........if they keep you with us, it is worth it!!!!!!!
We LOVE you Eleni!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. It has been a little slow going for me since mid summer. That is when we lost Dad. I don't think I was depressed but oh my, how my life changed.

Take care, Eleni, and thank you so much for staying in touch.

My Not So Good Day Just Got Worse

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

My daughter is an idiot. Her ex boyfriend treats her like poop and is telling people all kinds of things about her.I defended her on Facebook without calling him by name. She deleted it. I defend her and she deletes its. I am beyond upset. I told her to leave me alone until I calm down.This is her

Enough of that.
Here are a few pics I took today. Some of Roxy and some of flowers. I love the rose with rain drops

    Please tell Joy that all it takes to change her course is to find a replacement. She is a beautiful girl..shouldn't take but about a second. Once she finds someone that will treat her the way she should be treated there will be NO looking back. Happened for me...and here we are 36 years later...happy and healthy together. My first husband was the creep of the universe...all it took was for me to meet someone who was the EXACT opposite of him. Maybe he wasn't all about the looks and the cool factor...but he is the darling of my life. If I had stayed with the FIRST nut case...I'd be dead..pure and simple! emoticon You'd think Joy would see the great guy that Bill is and pattern her expectations after someone like him! Some women just can't live without drama in their lives...and maybe this guy gives her that factor. Me...I just want peace and quiet and I'm hoping someday she gets that too.

Oh...for the life of the Roxy girl! What a spoiled baby girl! emoticon emoticon

My fav is the rose with dew drops too...just LOVE it and YOU too! emoticon

  Hi Eleni.........
The more I hear about raising girls, the more I feel that I was lucky to have 2 boys. It must hurt so much to see her go through what she is going through, knowing that she should just stay away from him. I hope she makes the right decisions soon.
I love ALL of your flower pictures, but have to admit that the orchids are still my favorites.
I'm heading for bed.......we have company coming tomorrow and I am tired tonight.
Take care.

Had to listen to a digging machine from early morning til almost 3 this afternoon. It was driving me nuts.Went to bed late last night and was expecting to sleep late. Naught. Did get a short nap.
Bill is bringing supper home so I don't have to do that.
I have no pics but some from Facebook

  Hi Eleni.........
I knew that Florida had some exotic birds but that one is really something!!!!! The little girl with the crinoline reminds me of Elizabeth. I had both Nola and Elizabeth this afternoon and for supper. I am so glad that I had my kids when I was young!!!!! I can't imagine the energy it takes for Karissa (my DIL) to work 10-hr. days and then come home to all that is required of her in the evenings with a 5 yr. old and an almost 4-mo. old. I need a nap just thinking about it!!! Ken and I can do it in short spurts, but it takes BOTH of us to take care of the 2 of them at our age..........
Have a great evening......
