Catching up on sleep seems to help me, keeps me calm, lets me feel better too. Today after work Dd and I dropped books off at library, went to the Credit Union, went to parents house, checked for mice and mail, I mowed their lawn. I was burning rubber in that grass! I did the whole yard in an hour!! I am surprised a cop did not pull up and give me a speeding ticket in the back yard!! LOL!
We put a load of laundry on the clothesline, washed and dried a lot of big bowls and pots, baking dishes that I do not put in dishwasher. Unloaded dishwasher, showered and no I sit here, feeling like I did get a lot accomplished today so far..
We also hauled another big banana box of garage sale items to the parents house..

I plan on getting another early bedtime in tonight,, I need to relax and slow things down more often,, wish I had ten hands, eight feet and four heads, to get more done...

    You definitely burned a few calories today! Congratulations on accomplishing all that you did. I'm sure the good night's sleep had something to do with it. I'm sure you got another good night's sleep after all of this, too! emoticon

Did not realize how much that sleepless night took out of me until yesterday morning,, I felt like ten miles of bad road. If DD had been awake, I would have let her go to grocery store.. I did go, picked up a Rx, got my stuff, left.. Did some laundry, watched tv through my eyelids for a couple hours, but still felt rough..
Very tired this morning, but did sleep fairly well last night, went to bed at 6:45p. For some reason, I seem to have a huge amount of gas in the past three days!! I mean a lot of gas.... No new meds or foods,, walked a lot Saturday,,

I am going to go to bed early again this evening,, today was an easy, but slow day at work,, hoping tomorrow will be also... I have a whole page of labs scheduled for next month from my PCP, so we will see what is what then,, If I can keep my A1C at 5.9 like last time, I will be happy,,

    Sounds like your weekend did not go too well. That's too bad. Hopefully by tomorrow everything will be doing better. Supplements with medications can have interactions. Especially with prescription medications. There was a lot to read today in the AARP magazine about the issue of supplements making medications work as if they are stronger but others actually weaken the medication. I guess the pharmacist should be told about your medications, I try to look them up in the pill book for DH and I . Take care LINDA (((HUGS))), Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I will be ahppy for you, too. If you keep your A1c the same. I know it's a struggle. 2oo Hoo mine was 1 point below yours at 5.8. but next time? Hmmmmm

Also no more Beanie Weenies for you Missy!
Walking can cause gas if it's windy out. It does to me.

I hope youa re feeling better. It's nights like that that you ahd of no sleep that makes me trip over my feet and fall and hurt myself so I sure hope that doesn't happen to you.

rough night

Sunday, April 15, 2012

No sleep last night: I thought I was having a heart attack,, back and chest pains, shoulder pain,, clear female signs of cardiac probs.. took a couple Gaviscon and pain went away, it helped a lot, but I still lay awake with hot flashes,,

It is finally a rainy day, we were blessed with beautiful sunshine yesterday, hiked at the beach and marsh, met wonderful people from Nevada,,
supposed to visit friends today, I am very tired,, maybe just a quick nap,,

    You really should have called 911. It's better to be safe than sorry. When the symptoms are there, you really should listen.
I lost my very dear husband at the age of 45 to a massive heart attack. So sudden and no previous history.

    Another voice to add to the chorus: CALL YOUR DOCTOR! Cardiac symptoms, even if it turns out they're unrelated to anything cardiac, are nothing to mess around with. Stay safe! We all care!

    Sounds like you follow a lot of us... Maybe you enjoyed the rarity of a hike in the sunshine... and just maybe you loved it so much that you DID so much...!

I agree, you should have called 9-1-1. You took a chance with your life. This time you got lucky...

... and we need you here!

Be well, my friend!

    I'm right with GEMINI -- call your Dr.! You don't want to take such a chance with your health. DEFINITELY keep a phone by your bedside to call 9-1-1. In the meantime, I really hope you go to your Dr. and get an EKG (electrocardiogram) and check up to make sure things are alright.

    That sounds scary. I've had heartburn that felt like a heart attack, and panic attacks as well, but if it happens again, you might want to see a doctor. Not worth taking a chance. Take good care of you!

Simple pleasures..

Saturday, April 14, 2012

Priorities really do change when life situations alter your life. I remember when I was in my 20's dating, a simple pleasure was a Harley ride in the country with my boyfriend. Later on, a simple pleasure was a cool halter top or pair of designer jeans.
Still later, when first married, a simple pleasure was making a wonderful dinner for my hubby and I, savoring the time with him and talking(He worked 7 days, 16 hour days).

WHen my Dd was born, every second was a pleasure, even the everyday things I did with and for her. Sharing a popsicle, making Snoopy sno-cones in the heat of July; making blanket tents with a card table and chairs in the living room or making a simple playhouse out of cardboard boxes from new appliances , on our basement floor for her fantasy playtime..


Fast forward 25 years:
Calling in a Rx refill via voice mail, getting a free car wash, finding a coupon for groceries you need, feeling a pain pill do its' job, having Dd haul heavy things for me up the basement stairs, prepare meals, housework, etc.

I guess my last simple pleasure will be knowing that I already have my cemetery plot, my Trust all in order, owe nobody $$ and hoping they plant me in the correct hole!!!!!!!!!!
What more could a gal ask for????? Lowering expectations makes for a more relaxed, contented life..

    Great blog! Appreciating the little things makes life so much better! Candles on a gloomy day, a butterfly on a flower, the smell of lilacs, a quiet Saturday morning spent on SP after a long week at work - always something to be grateful for!
