Just a quick hello to say that Angel is much better today.I am a little on the puny side myself.I have been having 8 to 12# weight swings daily because of fluid and it kinda whips me some.So I am really taking it easy today. I will try to catch up on your comments and blogs tomorrow. Sorry I am just not up to it.I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. You are all very special to me
Well the day is coming to an end and I am a little tired.It did not start out well. I got a call at 7am which is never good.Turned out ANgel spent the night in the hospital with heart problems again.She didn't want me to worry so she didn't call until they were sending her home. She has spent most of day sleeping.I just talked to her and she sounded much better and was going to eat.
Bill was very good to me.He got me a necklace
He also got me the first 3 volumes of the Wheel of Time books.They are fantasy books. My oldest son has read 8 of the 11 and he said they are good.I will see. He had to take back the book Wicked and a young man at Books a Million recommended these.He also gave me a gift certificate to Book a Million.Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond. He is also putting money in bank for me to use to buy stuff on Amazon that I see. He also got me a set of Obsession perfume,lotion and small bottle for purse. So he took very good care of me.Oh I forgot.Bless his heart he tries so hard.He did get 2 blouses that are both going back. One doesn't fit and other is not something I will wear.
His brother and his wife came over and had dinner with us.I baked cornish hens,baked veggies and a tiny sliced ham.
I made enough veggies for an army but I will use leftovers for soup.Here is pic of veggies and them at table,Sorry the pic of them is a little blurry.
After lunch we played domino's. Karl won and I was 2nd.So I beat Bill again
So all in all it was a good day.Now I can rest up tomorrow for the big invasion of everyone coming. Bill only works 1 day next week so we will get to spend a lot of time together
Well I am going to go lean back in my recliner and rest.I hope you all had a great day and enjoy the weekend
I want to wish all of you a wonderful day tomorrow with your friends and family. I was going to try to send everyone a goodie but that would take a very long time. I have been blessed to have made so many just awesome friends.I have a big dictionary sitting next to me and there are not enough words to express how special you all are.You are just the best.Much love to you.
Now I will share a few pictures I took.These are different views of new plants that Bill brought home today. And as I said he really isn't a flower guy.He got them to make me smile.
The rose from the other day
So enjoy your time with family. Iam going to go give my hubby a big hug.
Oh I forgot.He also got me these as he knows I love them.
Will try to get this done before Angel gets here. I just baked some bread to make bread crumbs and once they cool I will smash them. Bill asked for baked chicken fingers and I was out of my homemade crumbs so I had to make more.I needed to do it anyway. Anything to make my sweetie happy.
he is going nuts trying to get me something for Christmas.He thought he had got a good one and I spoiled it for him. I have been talking about wanting to see the play Wicked that is playing in Tampa in Feb so I called and got tickets.Then I called Bill and in talking he asked if I had read the book and I said I had had book for a long time. Poor baby.He bought the book the other day.He thought he had done good and now he has to take it back. He is paying for half of the wicked tickets so I can count that as gift. I really can't think of anything to tell him to get.I did tell him I needed another bottle of Obsession perfume. He said something that makes me think he has gotten something different and I hope he hasn't.He tries but buying me stuff is something he just doesn't get the hang of.
Just got back from heart doc and he didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. I do have fluid in the lungs but it happens. I will take a complete extra dose of diuretics today. Which can cause a lot of other problems if I don't make sure to take enough extra potassium.He is such a sweetie. He proceeded to tell me what a remarkable woman I was and how much he truly loved me. Some charmer. He always tells me he loves me but this time he really went over board. I think he is just amazed I am still around. He was looking at my meds and I jokingly asked how many more was he going to add.He just shook his head and said it had to be daunting for me because he was for him when he looked at all my meds. There are 6 that all tie in with the fluid.Even the gout is mostly a result of fluid. I also got big hug from Dom who is a big bear of a man.My kind of guy. And another nurse. My nickname thanks to Bill is trouble but the nurse says it in a loving way. I am sorta one of their favorite patients.At least thats what they tell me.
I know there was something I wanted to tell you but can't remember now.
I am going to start a new journal called gratitude journal.I will try to list 3 things I am grateful for each day.My friend Carol RURAL3 blogged about starting one and I am going to copy her.She got a neat one from Amazon that is just for doing that.
Ok I need to get stuff ready for supper.Angel should be here soon. Better be good.Christmas is almost here. Love you guys more than you know.
Oh I remember.Now before you read it you may need to go to the bathroom so when you start laughing you will be ok.
I kept thinking there was something familier about my new frames. I still am not sure I like them.And after I made my discoverey today all I can say is.Well!!!!!
My glasses look just like the new ones that Ugly Betty is now wearing. I said I wanted a new look but I don't think that was what I was thinking
This week is flying by.
My GS Christopher 6 and GD Kayla 10 stayed with me for a couple of hours this afternoon.Their mom Rebekah needed to shop without them. First time in years they have stayed. He is 6 and got bored as I wouldn't let him outside. But Kayla had a good time in kitchen with me.I let her help and then make some of her own chocolate covered ritz crackers.I picked up some chocolate mint melting chocolate yesterday.They taste just like girl scout mint cookies. I let her take a dozen home plus some of the popcorn stuff. I talked to her about this being a happy memory for her when it comes time for Grandma to go to heaven.She liked the happy memory thing. That is it for making sweets.I am finished.
I gave Rebekah one of my smaller Christmas cactus and she watered my plants on patio that were very thirsty.
I am having a lot of trouble with fluid again.It is an endless battle.
I know I may regret it but I am taking a break from counting calories until next Monday. I have no intentions of eating wildly.I just want a break from all the calorie counting.
We are having a little cooler weather but it will be back to the 70's soon.It was in 60's today.
Ok I am going to go sit with Bill after i clean up my kitchen mess. Have a good night all
