One thing after another I am superwoman ;)

Monday, August 11, 2014

I have been so busy with neighbors and family I have barely had a chance to enjoy being LAZY!!Our neighbor had a stroke and I cared for her until she got a daycare nurse, my mother in law also suffered a mild stroke and I stayed with her for 2 weeks! Then our granddaughter broke her leg, we had a house full of grandkids and adults for 10 days, Then our grandsons wife gave birth 5 weeks early(a girl)His brother's wife has preeclampsia she's due with a boy next week, I returned in time to taxi my youngest to her ultrasound appt. Its a BOY!!!Then my mother in law wound up back in the hospital with her third stroke and we jetted off to help care for her again. She is 93 and she has been sitting in her house with no AC for a month in 90-100 degree temps! The Doctor said it was definitely a contributing factor in her stroke. I couldn't stand it I paid a company to repair her AC and she cried like I bought her a diamond ring. My DH found out and bragged to everyone which upset me because I don't want Glory I want her to be comfortable!!Now time to relax...with one eye open and one foot on the floor

Being happy isnt hard,Just Smile!!

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

My friend was commenting on all that I manage to do and I'm always smiling and HAPPY!Well for a lot of reasons I count my blessings daily.God has made me see whatever I'm going through can be handled and other people are not as lucky.Someone else has it ten times as bad and I'm counting my Lucky Stars.Life in general makes me happy and so smiling makes others or most grateful.We've been getting plenty of rain in Texas and our garden is so busy we can't keep up.Of course if the weeds were money we wouldn't have any emoticon Our youngest daughter is expecting a baby in November and she is as green as a sea monster sick with morning sickness! emoticon She does not live far from us so I try to do something to help her when I'm not helping my older neighbors or the animal shelter.I took a day to myself on Monday sat under our giant Maple tree,devoured a book,sipped iced tea,talked on the phone and napped.I felt like a million bucks afterward.I hope ya'll have been doing as great as me emoticon SUSAN

    Poor little puppy, glad you have the patience to get her adoptable or will you decide to adopt the pup? The last Sheltie we had my husband still says she was over handled by the children of the family, and a few were very small. She did live for 14 years so she did fine.

    I am fostering her.She is a buff color 5 month old and was born from a litter of 10 so she became food aggressive and I think tormented by the owners children. I was told she has mended injuries in several places and scars both physical and mental.I want her to be good enough for adoption testing in a month.

My guess is you are going to keep her. They grab your heart don't they?

    Good luck. There is nothing easy about Cocker Spaniels. If you have a petsmart near you, maybe you can enroll in a puppy class. They really need a firm hand. Good luck!!

    Prayer is the only way to go! Unfortunately, we usually use it as a last resort..... I know, cause I find myself starting my prayers for blessings with "Lord, I don`t know what to do..." and of course He already knows that! :)
I have prayed for you and the puppy. God`s blessings to you & little dog too.

Friday, March 14, 2014

I did a crazy thing when I saw some soda on sale..I stocked up telling myself I could take it or leave it.A big fat no!Well my sweet friend challenged me to cut back from 3-4 a day to one.After a week im drinking 1 or 1/2 a day and I'm happy to say Im losing my taste for soda!! emoticonThe kitten,Squeak and dog have been adopted emoticon I really miss them both.I went to the Goodwill and found about $700 worth of Adidas/Reebok/Nike workout gear for $50..3 pair Nike sneakers like new $35 and an exercise bike for $30.I saw the same bike at Academy for $350!! I'm getting 2 kittens for fostering on Monday and a 5 month old cocker spaniel mix.She is food aggressive being around 10 other litter mates.I wish you all a very happy St.Patrick's Day! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon SUSAN

    You have a lot of patience to take care of the animals. Up here in New York--the "soda" or pop as we call it, is very inexpensive. Makes me feeling like buying some, but I know I can't handle it, although I have a can now and then from the snack machine...

    I also make my own soda with soda stream. Less soda around the house because I make one bottle and it will last me about a week. The soda is not as sweet as over the counter.

    I make my own soda with a soda stream machine and a bit of vanilla essence and a few drops of stevia. No calories and delicious.

    I used to drink 3 cans of Pepsi a day. I quit drinking soft drinks about 7 years ago. I don't miss it at all. I prefer fruit infused water or green tea.

    Even though I quit soda as a teen, my sibling and children didn't and I have ached for them as they've struggled to leave it behind... Good luck and good luck with all your new house guests too :)

    ahhhh, soda! I gave up ginger ale (my soda of choice), then got the flu, and that is what I craved. I've gotten myself back down to 1 can a day, and actually yesterday only had 1/2! I'm hoping I drink the other half and not grab another one.

Bravo on the fostering of kitties and dogs. You are a great person!!

    Soda is a real downfall for me. I usually pick up a 32 oz McDs Coke on my way to work and it lasts me all day. I need to try to get off the stuff, but I get really bad withdrawal, headaches and nausea. Need to do it when I am not working, maybe during spring break. I definitely need to increase my water intake, I drink ionized water, which is suppose to be better for you.
