It's been windy all day------20 to 30 MPH winds..temp got up to 93...

I started out good this morning by getting some of the weed whacking done.

The day went downhill from there. After coming in for a while, I got very tired again so laid down. didn't up and on the computer...started eating and barely quit all day......ate healthy stuff just way too much of it...tomatoes, cukes, 12 grain bread (3 slices), frozen yogurt, blueberries with yogurt, noodles, beef tips, corn, cream cheese, and vanilla wafers. I think that is all......that's more than enough but I think this all I can remember........haven't gorged like this in a long long time.

I felt so blah today that I just ate and ate and ate....also took a time to go out and do some more weed whacking to work off some of this stuff.

Also, spent time on the phone trying to find someone to cover for me on my volunteer spot at the hospital while I am in Michigan. So far, no one is able to do it. I am calling people I don't even know to work for me and they don't know me either. I will try again tomorrow then call the director and tell her I didn't have any luck getting coverage. The 2 men I work with are fully capable of handling everything by themselves. If she wants me to quit-so be it-I am not cancelling my trip. I only work 4 hours a month so it's not a long period of time. I don't like calling people I don't know.

Things will get better....It's just my mood today!!!

    I love Eeyore.......So I must love you too!

Yeah..calling people for favors is hard. If that is out of the way, today will be better.
That calling people pressure puts an emotional weight (about 80 lb) on me for the whole day.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

A Good Day

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

After nearly 3 weeks of not being up to snuff, I finally got some good work in today. Of course mostly what I did was sit around------sit on the lawn mower and go around and around and around all 2 acres of yard. Mowed the front, both sides, back, and the dog pen. Then pulled the swamp grass out of the tires that have mums in them and took a trailer load of limbs out to the burning pit.

And I was still able to work in the church library tonight.

3 more days of antibiotics...

Much Better Week

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Wouldn't you know that as soon as I made a doctor appointment, the dizziness stopped!!! I went anyway and got put on 10 days of antibiotic. I had a sinus infection not just allergies. The first 3 days of the antibiotic really kicked my butt. On Saturday (the 4th day) I felt a little better. I was supposed to go to Branson to meet a spark team mate, who is from Guam and visiting family and friends in the states, but didn't feel that I should make a 90 minute drive alone. So with much regret, I told her I couldn't come. She was so gracious (Thanks, Jane) and I so wanted to meet her.

So far, I have had sense enough to know when I shouldn't drive but my girls have all been instructed that if I don't use that sense they are to step in and get "bossy". Luckily, none of my girls mind taking me places on those occasions that I'm not comfortable driving.

4 more days of antibiotic......... emoticon

My B 12 level was good so injections are monthly again. Recheck in 6 months........

    I found out that my sporadic ear ache was probably allergies/sinus! Darn things!

Glad you are feeling better.

out with the old with the new doors

Saturday, June 02, 2012

these are the old falling apart doors with wide gaps around them

and these are the newly installed larger regular house steel doors. The screen just pushes up into the top when the storm window is needed. No more gaps around this door.

Sinuses, Vertigo, fatigue, or depression

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Today hasn't been a real good day for me.....I am very tired or maybe fatigued. My dizziness has been terrible today. If I move quickly or stand up too fast, I almost go forward. Luckily I have been able to catch myself. Also, I've had a mild headache all day. I felt better for a while after taking a nap.

My sinuses are stuffy which leads to the dizziness. I just don't want the vertigo to set in.

My shoulders still feel heavy at times. The exercise seems to be helping them.

I am puffy from eating out Tuesday and Wednesday even though I made good choices both times. They just use way too much salt in preparing their foods. Even the vegetables have salt in them. This is what my weight gain is from.

It's cloudy today which sets my SADS off.....I am just a complainer, moan, squawk, complain....that's me today.........LOL

    I always have an issue with salt when I eat out, no matter how "good" I am, so I try to not do it very often, and definitely not if I have a scheduled weigh-in for a team. :-)

I hope the other things you mentioned are better.

    \i was very dizzy in the fall and added Maca powder and B12 and have less trouble now. I had to take a lot of non-drowsy motion sickness pills before someone else suggested the supplements. Apparently i have pretty odd ball female hormones with too much progesterone.
