dog poo for christmas, its a good thing

Friday, December 23, 2011

here it is, not yet seven am, on a friday morning, one day before christmas....and, well, im up, and i guess i shouldnt complain because i got up to take sparky out when i heard him whining and yes, he did have a bowel movement, so that is a good reason to get up.....wishing he was paper trained.
two christmas wishes have come true for me, sparky is pooping again and the colts won, again!!!
so, if i get nothing else for christmas, i will be happy anyway....well, ok, maybe some sleep would be nice.
when i blogged last night, i had planned to discuss more about the trip to the mall in johnson city, tenn
i got up at 6 am tuesday and got in the shower and had honey up and ready to go by 8, it only took us an hour to get the first 25 miles out of the way, as i had factored into my plans, see, honey, as i knew he would had to stop at the nearest store and buy an energy drink....then the next store was for gas
and since, they had no air hose the next place we came to was to check the air in the we are on our way
and it takes about 2 hours roughly to drive there.....
so by the time we pull into the parking lot, i am stiff from sitting so long and glad to be out of the car...the walking wasnt so bad, cause everything is pretty close
but i went into every shoe store in that mall and area surrounding it....and couldnt find the vans my son wanted and so, i end up coming back home and getting him a similar brand....
we had an ok day, enjoyed the rare treat of a different coffee blend than we have around here, i wasnt really all that tired from the walking
but when we got back home that night i was worn out and aching all over and i had so much pain in my right side around my ribs....
i have no idea what caused that pain, only it was so bad that night laying in bed, everytime i breathed in deep it hurt so much....
but its been days now and i am just so tired, weary kind of tired, christmas is really taking a toll on me physically this year and i know that is my own fault for not keeping up my regular walking and weight lifting routine, i have myself to thank and i will keep this blog as a reminder of just how very tired i have been
and i put off having my hair done til the last minute so, i guess that is a disappointment, but also my fault....
i really do wish each of you a merry christmas, happy hanuaka, kwanzaa, whatever you celebrate, celebrate in good health...

    Happy things are looking up for you! Just be kind to yourself until Christmas is past. It has definitely taken a toll on me too... I just know that it's going to be so and know that after Christmas is over things will get better!!!

Merry Christmas!

    I remember the Christmas right before I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I was so tired and my whole body hurt so much, but it was the pain in my ribs that drove me to the doctor. Xrays showed nothing, then a bunch of other doctors, ended up being told it was fibromyalgia. I wonder if that is what is going on with you?
I am happy your dog is better. I hope you have a nice Christmas.

lets be careful in here.....

Ok, lately it seems I have been getting some very strange friend requests on Facebook, and a little un-sought after attention here as well.
I dont know if someone is simply trying to hack my account or what.
I cant figure out why they would want to, I have no banking business or credit card information to steal online.
I dont know what the deal is.
But for a few weeks now I have been getting friend requests, mostly on Facebook from men who seem to be foreigners, mostly African or Middle Eastern.
They have names that sound made up, and their pages seem made up as well, only one of them had a mutual friend and shes not one I am really close friends with, and when I asked her about it, she never did answer me.
I guess I have denied around 5 requests, at least.
I have gone in and reset my privacy settings to nearly being closed off from anyone altogether, have set my pics to friends only and some not even friends can see.
I just cant figure it out, I have what is supposed to be decent anti-virus protection on my computer.
I have no intention of friending any of these ppl and am considering beginning reporting them to FB, even though that seems a bit rash at this point, as only one of them have actually sent me a message, the others just the friend requests, still, if there is something strange going on, I think its better to be safe than sorry.
I do not play any games on FB, or anywhere online, my SP page is not linked, nor is my yahoo mail account and I rarely ever go on Myspace now.
So, this has to be hackers, cause I am not out there on any forums where anyone can see my page, etc.
Has me a little worried.
The only strange thing going on here on SP, is that I had a guy who I guess wanted more in the way of conversation than just about diet and exercise.
While he never did come right out and say anything inappropriate, he kept hinting about "flirting" with me. And seemed to be fishing for me to flirt with him.
He very well may read this, as I think he added me.
I will probably go in and clean out my SP friends list the same way I did FB.
He had very little on his page, no pictures, and didnt seem to want to discuss anything about the mutual group he said we belonged to.
Any other ladies had this problem?
I had the one guy a few months back who wanted to exchange pictures we would take of ourselves standing nude in front of a mirror...."first thing in the morning".....haha, can anyone guess what he meant?
I did report that guy to SP, as he kept sending me requests for pics and when I went to look at his page, the only group he belonged to was the LOOK GOOD NAKED group, which SP said was a real group, however, when I typed it into the search I could not find it.
Why is it that people cant get online and just discuss issues that they want or need to share with others, without someone taking it the wrong way and assuming everyone else online is looking for a hook up or whatever????
So, for my real friends on here and I do have several that I follow their blogs and they mine, I will probably be making my page a little more private, discussing less personal issues in my blogs and maybe even removing some of my pics for awhile.
Just until I feel like some of the nonsense has passed.
I hope everyone is safe online and take it from me, be careful about being too nice or sharing too much info.
I really never thought I did, but I guess I must have given someone the wrong idea or I just exude animal magnetism, even "mouse magnetism"....hehe

    I am so glad I am not on facebook, I worry about my daughter being so involved in it. I do not blame you for being concerned. Nothing like that nude photo guy, what a riot, has happened to me. Nor have I heard about it happening. I guess it is just you that attracts the

    You just have to be careful. Sorry this happened to you. I regularly get emails from people trying to get money sent but the typos and grammar are so bad that I know it is fraud. Most of them I don't even open.

Today, at work, I actually received a phone call from someone saying he was from Microsoft, checking out some viruses on our computer. He was very difficult to understand (foreigner) so I asked to speak to someone else. He came back with the "senior supervisor" who wasn't much easier to understand. They wanted me to push certain keys on my computer and read what it says to them. I told them I wasn't authorized to do that and to give me their phone number so I could call them back. They actually gave me a phone number. I called Microsoft and they do no such thing. The phone number wasn't listed (I check and I suspect it was a cell phone. The background was very noisy with other people. The area code turned out to be New Jersey. Anyway, glad I was on to them before I did anything.

I used to get a lot of emails for enhancing body parts I don't even have! My spam filter takes care of most of that now.

    OMG Val,Where do I begin.This blog should be mine.I've had the same problem with FB and I've went so far as to find out exactly what these ppl want.There's a huge ring of ppl- foreigners,That is not only on FB but has infiltrated yahoo messenger,my space and other sites.The person that's contacted me on FB told me that she was extremely sick with stage 4 cancer and wanted me to distribute some funds for her to needy ppl,to make this very long story short it all boils down to contacting her person in Africa who owns a bank to have 50,000,000 deposited into MY account,when i told her that I couldn't give this info,she replied"GIVE HIM WHAT HE WANTS"(just like this she typed back).OHH,I so wanted to call the police but instead I see everyday where she and these other ppl are making friends daily on FB and I'm wondering just which 1 is gonna be duked by these ppl in Switzerland,Dominican Republic,Zimbabwe,etc.I used to get these emails a long time ago from foreigners and it took an act of congress to stop it.Is her name Maryam Collins?

my big hurry up and give up!!!!

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

If there is one thing I like about fall and the approaching colder weather, it is the fact that I can wear big bulky long sweaters and cardigans and long shirts.
To cover my big fat disgusting stomach and body. And, even then, I still cant find clothes to really fit. I am thinking of seriously buying me some African dresses, I dont know what they are called, but the big moo moo type dresses, or maybe a burka.

I am so fed up, I really wish SP would allow a cussing fit on here.
I have some choice words for myself and for my non existent success.
I am just fed up.
I cant get ahead for getting falling back.
I cant win for losing.
I look like waddle waddle weeble wobble and I am ready to just be one of those people you see on Dr. Oz or Geraldo reruns, the 900 lb person who hasnt left the couch in 6 years.
I cant see anything good over the horizon.

    Some days I feel the same way. I want to cover the jiggly arms with those long sleeve shirts and sweaters. The stomach too. Wish I could get myself back on track.

hope you get the meaning of the song...i did...

Sunday, September 04, 2011

Listening to the peaceful sound of rain outside tonight.
Fall is here, the temps will drop tonight and tomorrow. And, to me, Autumn is the time of renewal.
I feel such a sense of "second chances" in the fall.
Maybe its the cooler weather.
I look forward to spending the last day honey has off tomorrow with him, cleaning house, as he has promised to lend a hand to do some heavier jobs.
And then just relaxing in the nice cool fall day.
This link I have added, the song, has been on my mind all day for some reason.
Which is strange, cause I havent heard the song in awhile.
But I think its the lyrics, about a fighter. Someone who doesnt have much, but the willpower to keep going.

Hope you all had a good weekend so far.
Have you ever seen a one trick pony in the field so happy and free?
If you've ever seen a one trick pony then you've seen me
Have you ever seen a one-legged dog making its way down the street?
If you've ever seen a one-legged dog then you've seen me

Then you've seen me, I come and stand at every door
Then you've seen me, I always leave with less than I had before
Then you've seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me can you ask for anything more?

Have you ever seen a scarecrow filled with nothing but dust and weeds?
If you've ever seen that scarecrow then you've seen me
Have you ever seen a one-armed man punching at nothing but the breeze?
If you've ever seen a one-armed man then you've seen me

Then you've seen me, I come and stand at every door
Then you've seen me, I always leave with less than I had before
Then you've seen me, bet I can make you smile when the blood, it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me can you ask for anything more?

These things that have comforted me, I drive away
This place that is my home I cannot stay
My only faith's in the broken bones and bruises I display

Have you ever seen a one-legged man trying to dance his way free?
If you've ever seen a one-legged man then you've seen me...

this blasted knee

Monday, July 25, 2011

I thought my knee wasnt so bad. Nothing like the torn meniscus from last summer.
But, today as I was cleaning in my bedroom, I stretched across to sweep down the walls and put all my weight on that leg and man did it hurt.
I have put off seeing my doctor long enough.
So, Thursday I have an appt to go in and will ask her to send me for that dreaded MRI!!!
Why did this have to happen again?
I know they will tell me its a torn meniscus and want to do surgery just like on the other leg.
I am scheduled for my band on August 30 and I am not letting anything get in the way of this as I have put it off once to deal with my dog.
He is doing better, goes tomorrow to have his stitches taken out and get his anal gland checked, I think the infection is clearing up.
I sure hope so.
It has poured rain pretty much all day here today. When it finally did let up, I took the chance to run an errand or two and got caught out in it.
Hot and humid and my hair is paying the price.
It is soooooo dry. and frizzy.
I stopped weeks ago even trying to use the flat iron on it.
So, I am tired and think I will turn in earlier than usual tonight.
Right after I fold the load of laundry that is in the dryer, dry the load waiting in the washer....take out the trash, and set my coffee pot for the am.

    A torn meniscus is really painful! I had one too and
I had surgery. It still took a very long time to heal.
Even yet, mine stays sore and sometimes painful.
But at least I can deal with it. I hope that you can
get it repaired before the Band surgery.

    I have knee issues too, nothing as bad as a torn meniscus, just stretched out tendons. I have to exercise to fix them but yet exercising sometimes aggravates frustrating!
Good luck with your surgery and hope your dog feels better really soon :)
