today was a good day....but last night was a wild wild night. went to the little local city festival, in which our local doctor does his very very good impersonation of elvis...and other local singers there as well.
spent some time with family and friends and lo and behold i turn around and there standing about 10 feet behind me is my friend, the one who just got out of jail!!!
my jaw nearly hit the pavement...i was unable to really talk to him, cause he was leaving the festival and so was i....but today i ran into him in town and we talked for a good 15 minutes, 2 big hugs and a peck on the cheek and i am just so happy he is free....to see him on independence day was wonderful for me.
i know he still has this charge hanging over his head, but i just hope the self defense law his attorney is defending him with will stand and his rights will be taken into consideration.
then, i came home and had a lively and funny discussion with a newer friend on facebook....it was silly, but had me giggling like a school girl back in the days of late night gossip phone calls.
i was so wired up from the silliness i couldnt fall asleep til nearly 4 am.
seeing my friend was the icing on the cake of an already great morning.....fearing getting on the scale for nearly a week, i fatefully took the plunge this morning to discover i have lost 2 lbs!!!
so as days go, this one was pretty good.
no!!!! it was a top ten a plus day, even when the wind storm broke my neighbors tree into my yard.
i stayed on track with my food, calories were right on the money and got in my protein...
now, the only thing i really need to work on is my exercise...it has been wayyyyyyyy to hot to walk and with my honey and my son here all the time watching tv in living room at all hours, i have very little room to work out or ride my bike....
but praying that changes next week, my son got an apt and is moving and honey goes back to work, so here i come bike and weights!!!

I think I am beginning to return to normal...well in some aspects anyway. I have been super tired, drained of all energy.
Yesterday I took a 2 hour nap and then turned in last night before the late news.
Today, other than a back ache and arguing with honey, I have been feeling a little better.
The swelling in my feet and legs is gone and I havent had caffiene in 2 days.
Have been taking my meds and fish oil and trying to stick to higher protein and foods with lots of magnesium.
I really think that is what is going on with me.
In much better news, my friend got released on bond yesterday...the judge says he will rule within the week on weather or not the murder charge against him can be dropped, based on his self defense argument.
I am just glad he got to come home, even if he has to go back, he is getting to see his children and mother and breathe the fresh clean air.
Now, this back ache is another story altogether.
I think alot of it is stress, honey is waiting his unemployment check and we are falling behind for the first time in a long long time on bills.
I want to point a finger in his face and remind him that he could have gone to work for another company, but no, he choose to be laid off for nearly 2 months and be loyal to the same company that cut all their overtime, laid them off, is farther to drive to and offers no more benefits or pay than any other company around.
I dont think at this point, we will ever have the money replaced in checking that we had a few weeks ago.
Not with bills waiting to be paid.
What a great way to spend the 4th of July. Broke, in pain, arguing and burning up!!!
But free, and that might come with a price for some, for my friend it was around 20 thousand property bond, but that sure beat the half a million full cash the judge had set before.
I am happy to have electricity, now just to be able to pay the bill.

today we got rain, finally, the grass was so dry it looked like it would turn to a tumbleweed soon.
we didnt get as much as we needed, but every little bit helps. i still wish we had gotten more, the ground is so parched, the creekbeds are drying up....but i have water, in my legs, i guess that is water, i hope. still drinking my lemon water as a natural diuretic....seems to be working.
we went to the garden to check on our green beans, we have some, but they are small, kinda hoping another week or two and a little more rain will make a big difference.
however, my red and green bell peppers are hiding and i cant even see a vine.
probably animals got to them.
i had morning glories planted along the tree where i buried my dog and they bloomed, then just died and the vine is gone now too.
i have tried to stay away from caffeine today, hoping it would help slow these heart palps.
i only drank maybe half a cup. and no soda, so far today my heart hasnt been beating away.
but my feet are still swollen. not as bad as they were, my left knee is super tight, im hoping it isnt leading to any worse problems.
have drank my water today, stayed on track with my food, no snacking.....
but, no exercise today either.
just too pooped to party!!!
here is a little video i shot this morning during the rain storm from my porch, it isnt great, that constant sound you hear on the video is the rain beating on the tin roof of my porch.
stay cool all.

i am still swollen in my feet and legs, achy all over, i feel like a balloon that will pop and explode with hot water.....
i have been drinking ice water with lemon all day, hoping it will begin to act as a natural diuretic, along with my aldactone.
i have peed like a russian race horse all day and still my ankles are carrying more water than the mississippi... just too bad it isnt wet on the ground. last night the wind began to whip up and the sky got black, we had loud thunder and it came a down pour, hard, that lasted well over 1 minute!!!
today, same thing, loud loud thunder and then the rain came, and before i could post it on facebook that it was raining, it quit.
the poor dog is running himself to death looking for some actual green grass to go potty in!!
the grass and the gardens here are dry, dry and brown and the creeks are almost dried up.
we need rain.....(i wonder what its like to be the rainmaker)
woe is me! i cant seem to shake this bloat, and i cant seem to shake these heart palps, today they werent too bad....what did i do differently today???? i dont really think much of anything....its just ankles up about half up to my knees....
its hot. 114 yesterday on my brothers thermometer....today was alot cooler, i only seen it get up to about 105.....

I dont have to tell anyone how hot it is. This is dangerous weather. Our local Judge has issued a burning ban, and no one should have to be told not to burn right now.
I was sitting on the porch earlier, and the wind was blowing thru the trees, but I couldnt even feel the wind or breeze on my skin.
Too hot to do much of anything but sit home and complain about the heat.
I have an awful lot to complain about today.
My ankles are swollen, so bad, when I took my socks off after about 2 hours, I had a huge indention where they had been.
My heart is racing again today. Dont know how much the heat factors in to that.
But for about 3 or 4 days now the palpatations have gotten more pronounced.
My hair is dry and looks like straw and the 30 bucks I spent on a hair straightener was a waste, because it seems to dry my hair even more.
I am so looking forward to rain.
I have to go grocery shopping, emphasis on the words HAVE TO.....cause I sure dont want to.
I need something to rid my body of extra water, and nothing stimulating like coffee.....
I have decided to cut back on all of the caffeine until I see what is up with this racy racy heart....
PCOS!!! You will not get the best of me!!
Stay cool, eat right, lots of water, and watery fruits....stay in the house with the air cond, and check on the elderly, pets, etc.....
and I think the price of ice just doubled.
