It seems I only blog when I have something to complain about...sorry...
I have been off Spark People alot lately, I have excuses, but they are just excuses back pain , knee pain, blah blah....lol....two weeks ago I got rearended and had minot damage to my bumper, the poor kid who hit me kept apologizing cause he wasn't looking in front but to see if cars were coming, he was behind me on a yield passage, 3 days later I am on the autoroute heading home from work, the car in front of me does an evasive move and manages to change lanes, but lo an behold, there was a kitchen chair in the middle of the lane. I had cars on both sides of me and I am rolling at 100km ( about 60 miles per hour, I think), so I hit the brakes, managed to stop just before the chair, but before I could catch my breath, I got rearended again. 4 police cars, 1 ambulance and a tow truck, and me with nerves totally shot. 1 week later my truck was declared a total write off.
Yesterday we ordered a new truck. Last time it was a happy experience, for me not so this time..it's not the way to get a new car. I still drive on the autoroute, but nervously. Oh the day after the stupid accident, my mare came down with colic. A word that strikes terror into every horse owner. Quit acting on the part of the people at the stable, hubby and the vet, the mare is okay today. We have added electolytes to her diet. We are thinking that the drastic change intemperature that we had, from the 80's to freezing overnight might be responsable for her dehydration which led to the colic.
But all this happened in the space of 4 days. One begins to feel real unlucky!!!
Everything else in my life is fine. I have even started riding again, but just trail rides, me and my mare in the woods all by our selves at a walk, so relaxing!!!!!!!!

Siegrid, what am I going to do with you?? Since Dad took sick, you've been going back to all your old habits. You keep telling yourself that you can 'do this!' SO, WHY AREN'T YOU!!!!!! Do you want to wake up at 220 pounds again, cause guess what...you got rid of all those clothes. And how about the way you feel? Not too good is it. No more confidence, no more self =esteem and you've been feeling guilty since dad died. It's okay to spend his money, it's yours now. So what's your problem?. Come on girl, you know you can do this, you've done it before. Remember how you felt when you reached your goal weight. Remember how you felt wearing a size 8 instead of a size 20. Remember how much enegy you had!!!! You deserve this, you are as good as anyone else!! So get off that chair and go take the dog for a walk, NOW......
Talk to you later........

I don't blog enough!! I am also having a lot of trouble lately. I am trying desperately to get my 'mind-set' back but there are days when it isn't easy. Right now I am trying to set myself daily goals of being positive and staying on track. Two days in a row successful so far. It seems to that since my Step-Father got sick last fall all my old insecurities have come back. I have gone back to not liking myself, putting myself down, etc. I seem to be overwhelmed in everything.
So, I'll try blogging more often and maybe this way I can help myself stay positive!!!
So, I guess that's it for today and now it's time for me to get on my stationary bike.

My Step-father has been in the hospital since August after having suffered two strokes in less than a month. Since this time I have taken his dog to the vet's to be put to sleep, and this past couple of weeks, sold his house. Now I have to empty it before the 1st of december which is when the new ownerr takes possesion. All this I am doing with a Power of attorney for incapacity. My step-father is perfectly aware of what is going on around him but he is paralized, so he is not mobile and cannot sign for anything. So..this past weekend I went to his bank to 'take control' of his account so I can sin his cheques and place the money from his house in mutaul funds, in his name of course. The bank refused me, said the power of attorney wasn't ggod enough, although they didn;'t completely understand it as it is in English and this is a French province. They said I would need another notorized power of attorney which of course just means more moneey spent on something I aalready have. So, fist off I am going to go to my own bank and find out if with the papers that I have if I can open an account in his name and do the funds thing also. ohterwise I guess I am just going to have to call my dad's notory and see what he says. All this bureaocracy is starting to drive me just a little nuts.....
but i guess it does help to write it down, although I guess this is rambling quyite a bit :-)... might help keep me sane..........
