warm spell

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

today it is supposed to get a high temp of 54 degrees: the last day of January.. crazy,, my car, Vinny, will not even mind being parked on the driveway for awhile..
got to go back to parents house to get that darned refrigerator out of the basement,, it is huge, old, heavy,, it is a 13 block basement, then upstairs it has to turn, go over the threshold, then onto the back porch, then turn again, then down five steps,, then to the truck,, we really needed more help last night,, we were huffing and puffing, panting and wheezing to get that freezer up the same route and it is much smaller and lighter!!
Calgon take me away,, DD and I are stiff as boards this morning,,,

all the snow we got yesterday is slowly melting,, still some covering the ground,,, I am glad that it is not cold,, now we are supposed to get rain for a couple days.. Only in Michigan..

    I had to drive to Clarkston for a meeting at 1:00 and the expressway was awful! I got to Birch Run and there wasn't any snow.

    I too am glad you got home ok in the rough conditions! Sounds like a good night for soup, a blanket, and a good book/movie. Give Vinny a sympathetic pat for me.

    No one wants to sleep outdoors in the winter. I think my engine would be sluggish too. I'm glad you made it home in time and safely.

Hoping great-niece and great-nephew are coming today to parental house to take a refrigerator out of their basement,, it is old, it is sucking energy like a bat at midnight.. I also asked them if they would take the upright freezer upstairs and to the garage,, going in the sale.. we have to defrost it when it warms up above freezing temps..

Making a dent..

Saturday, January 28, 2012

DD and I made the trip to the basement yesterday, a daunting task of sorting through years of stuff.. for the garage sale.. Her skin problems only allow us to stay down there, due to damp and some mildew,, for about a couple hours before she starts getting pain and itching ,, SHe hauled two huge trash bags of junk to the garage, we sorted through a lot of Christmas wrapping paper and assorted things like boxes, gift bags,etc,, old clothing to be tossed, filled yet another big plastic bin with some more of my old books.. we have a lot more to do, it looks very messy, but we know how much we accomplished, hauling boxes, etc..
IT felt good to do it and make some headway towards a better organized home..

Am I eating healthier? Depends on the time frame..
from ten years ago,, oh yes!

Form five years ago,,OH YES!!
from one year ago, I can say yes.. less sweets, unhealthy fats, snacks.. now I am eating Kashi cereal with 1/2 banana,,, to take with my morning meds..

I am gradually slipping more organic foods, more healthy fats. way less processed snacks,,
will it make a difference? Maybe not with me, but DD is also making and discussing different healthy foods, moves and food preps.. that is worth it all,, when I die, she will need to have this lifestyle to stay alive with ;the family history..

MRI was no big deal,, I could have stayed in there for an hour or two,, I just prepared myself to go into TM,, after about four minutes, I did not even heatr anything,, closed my eyes, did the total body relaxation and went into TM mode,, I was actually lying on a hammock near the beach in Bali, smelling the flowers, ocean air, feeling the breeze, hearing the surf pound.. next thing I knew they were sliding me out and it was finished,, it took over a half hour according to my clock,(they had to re-do part because I swallowed once!) , glad I was only in the tube for five minutes, mentally!!

I arranged for them to send the results to my family doctor as well as the neurosurgeon,, asking is receiving...

    Great job, I hope the results will be helpful to diagnose the problem. Good call to get it to your Dr too since they can sometimes give you more info. I was about to undergo an exploratory surgery for my back. When i mentioned it to my MD, who had been away he immediately called and asked the odds of success. I never thought about that one. He told me they said it was 50/50 for resolving the nerve entrapment issue. i chose a numb leg instead of more potential pain. Now with acupuncture i am doing well.
I hope you know the outcome very soon, waiting is always the difficult part for me I an very impatient. I was a Radiographer in England and when I tell them that they will usually let me read them if they have time.
It is good to here you are educating your daughter in healthy choices mY grand daughter is eating better too. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I don't know what the big deal is with some people who are claustraphopic about having an MRI or CT scan. I jsut dream and relax in that big donut. It's not like you are all closed in. I could wiggle out if need be.

I'm praying all goes well for you my friend.
