Bible Study and Dentist Appointment

Monday, August 25, 2014

We have been going through a bible study on perfectionism these past couple months. I have been learning a lot about myself as well. How hard I am on myself and my daughter at times. It is a hard habit to break. I still spend too much time doing school work than housework. I still chastise myself when i make mistakes. And I still spend too much time on computer games to try to avoid reality. I still want to get A's all the time; to prove myself to others. Thursday I go to Appleton to get a dental exam. I just hope and pray i will have a better experience than I did before. I got an A in my last assignment for photography but this one for television I do not think I had the proof he wanted for one question. But I ran out of slides for references. He wanted 12-15 I had 15. Will I be satisfied with less than an A? Probably not. I have not been logging the way I should either or eating right.

You can't do everything just do the best you can. Don't forget marking is often subjective not really a total reflection of all your abilities and talents. Give yourself a pat on the back for all that you are doing!

Doctors Visit and Grade on Assignment

Saturday, August 16, 2014

Well i went to the doctor yesterday to get help for my bladder trouble. She prescribed Oxybutin and told me to cut back on my coffee. Ouch! I love my coffee. I can drink a whole pot of it myself. I will never cut it out completely cause then i would be a bear. I am down to 3 cups now instead of 6. Also she wants me to wear support hose or stockings. I have some but one one leg it cut into my leg under the knee. I got an A on my assignment for last week. I just turned in my photograph one tonight. The next one is about television and I have to do an essay plus a PowerPoint. I will start reading my material tonight to get ahead. We had more rain here today.

Doctors Scales and other things

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

I am so mad at the huge difference between my scale and the doctors. Mine said 123.4 when i weighed on it now. According to the doctors scale I was weighed at 197 pounds! That was on the 29th of last month! If i was that heavy i would not even be able to fit into the clothes i can still wear yet. Of course some do not fit because i gained too much weight; but not that much! T%hat is why i never even look at it anymore. It just makes me mad. In my last class I did a brochure about SparkPeople. And put a before and after picture of someone who lost weight in the front and then talked about all the tools that SparkPeople give you to help you lose weight. In the back i posted the picture of the biggest losers from Sparks who were interviewed by People Magazine. I will let you know Saturday what grade i got. We finally got the needed rain here in Wisconsin today. Got a new leash for our dog but cannot make it fit into a t shape the way it is supposed to. It is supposed to be around her chest not her neck. I am going to cam for Ladies Retreat next month. I cannot wait; it has been too long. Our church had a pig roast on Saturday and then hosted a little breakfast on Sunday for one of our missionaries who is retiring. Ate too much both days I think. Hard to get enough fruits and veggies in some times when they cut our food money in half.

    That is a huge difference. Did you weigh with jeans on and jewelry. How about shoes. Anyway, maybe you should have your scales calibrated. I threw mine out cause it too was way off. I got a digital one and it is much closer.

    Didn't your daughter have problems with your home scale vs. doctor's scales too? What did the doctor say about the discrepancy?

Time To Catch Up

Monday, August 11, 2014

Well I am sorry that i have been a no show for months here. I can only say that I got lazy and distracted by my school work again. I have gained weight and i intend to try and change that. But first I have to line up my day so I do not spend so much time with class. It seems i am once more being taken over by it. And the house is in disarray again. My left leg is getting better now. Have been seeing a therapist for it. Went to a dental place in Oconto a few weeks back. Very bad experience there. I was in more pain afterwards for almost a week. They did not give me any gas.I was a nervous wreck! I had to have 2 shots to numb me, not one. I could feel the dentist pulling at my filling from the back of my head. Even after it was over i was in pain while being numb for 5 minutes or more. I will not go back there again. I am in a new class now. It is all about visual media. I had to study paintings, sculpture, architecture, and commercial art so far. This week is all about photography. Have to go now and do my exercises for my left leg.


Thanks For Prayers and Weight Gain And Philosophy Class

Friday, June 06, 2014

I want to thank all of you on Sparks who prayed for my daughter before. It turned out to be just a muscle sprain and nothing more but it was a wake up call for her to lose weight. I have some serious losing to do yet. I cannot fit into my clothes from last year and my daughter says she is disappointed in me too. Lately I have been feeling depressed and have no ambition to really do anything. Now I am in Philosophy and it is much harder than my other classes were. I have to write a paper about Aquinas and Augustine this week. I have not started on it yet. Feeling blue because we cannot go to hear a writer from our group speak at an Appleton meeting on Monday; no room in the truck. Feeling like we are always the fifth wheel and that the group has become cliquey since the last year we were in it before. Also had to write a letter to one of our friends explaining why we do not want to get together on Sunday anymore. They are Seventh Day Adventists so they go by the Jewish Sabbath. But the last time we went with them we had to leave our dog in the her carrier most of the day because she did not poop in the morning right away. And we hardly got home from church and took her out to pee when we had to put her back in again. It breaks our heart to hear her whining and scratching at her carrier. And when we got home later that night she had pooped way in the back of it. My daughter had to take it all apart to clean it and then put it all back together again. So i told our friend all this because she is the one who wanted it on a Sunday. I hope she understands and we can come to an understanding.
