Yay,my internet is working again!

Saturday, March 19, 2011

Yay, I'm finally reconnected to the internet. Thank you to Marla and everyone else that kept things going on the team.

Apparently my router had died, so was able to get it replaced with a new one from my provider and all is working well once again.

I got my results back from the doctor on my neck xrays and was happy to learn that it was NOT ostio-arthritis in my neck, but that still leaves me with the issue, so I am going for an MRI on April 14th. I'm hoping that something will show what is causing the issue. When I bend down, sneeze, cough, or in anyway tighten my neck muscles, I get severe shooting pains from the base of my skull, up over the top of my head and right into the frontal lobe. (almost like what would be your worst case of "brain freeze"). It's very bizarre and has been going on now for a good two months with no let up. Leaves me with a low grade headache. I will sometimes wake up with a headache and the feeling that I slept with my neck in a bad position. My doctor talked me into taking an anti-inflammatory(I don't deal well with any medication) at nightime as she really thought it was arthritis in my neck. Had to stop doing that as I ended up with nose bleeds from the meds. As soon as I would sit up in bed in the morning, my nose would start bleeding. Quit taking the pills, the nose bleeds stopped! Yay, another known side effect that meds will give me. Now you know why, I work hard at living healthy!
If I listen to my gut about all of this....my feeling is that somehow, I have a pinched nerve or blood vessel, possible as a result of all the snow shoveling that I've been doing this winter. I'm working with my massage therapist to see if we can't fix it through the use of cranial massage.

My positives:

My internet is working once again...It's amazing how reliant I have become on the internet.
No ostio-arthritis in my neck.
As long as I avoid bending, sneezing, coughing or laughing too hard, I don't get brain freeze (as I call it).
Almost all my little planted seeds are growing, I'm so excited. Some have yet to poke their little selves through the soil, but I'm confident that they will.
Marla, Shirl, Mauri, Nancy and Lexie who kept things going while I had no internet connection.
It's the weekend.

Have a wonderful day, get excited about your life.

Hugs,
Wanda

    Glad to have you back. Hope the MRI comes out clean- and what ever is going on is minor and can be easily diagnosed. Positive thoughts.

    So glad to see you back, and hoping that the MRI shows what's happening so that you can figure how best to fix it, or that the cranial massage sorts it out for you. :-)
Take care,
Hugs,

Ides of March struck!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

The Ides of March struck me yesterday....I have no internet connection at home, apparently my IP address has disappeared! My internet provider is unable to send some one out until Friday afternoon to see if they can find out what the issue is.

I've logged on briefly from work this morning, but it will be hit and miss as I don't like doint personal things from work.

I know there are several on the team that will step up and keep things going...I really appreciate you all. I'll try to pop in occasionally as time allows me to from work. Otherwise...I'll see you all again (hopefully) late Friday once my IP address has been relocated!

Hugs,
Wanda

    I guess I should have read your blog first before commenting on the chat. I thought the whole team deserted me! LOL Hopefully they'll get you up & running by Friday. Miss you.

    Wanda, one of the first quotes I remember from my Latin class is "Cave Idus Martias" - "Beware the Ides of March." Hehehehe...

Sorry for your troubles. A bump in the road to test your resourcefulness. Hang in there. Hope to see you back soon.

Our Grand Opening is today!

Monday, March 14, 2011

Today will be a super busy day as we celebrate our Grand Opening for the new library, the art gallery and the entire community center complex. I get to be an usher, a tour guide and general go-fer today. It will be good to have today over with and hopefully there will be less stressed people at work!
I'm reciting my mantra in a constant loop lately "I choose to live in Easy World where all things are easy".

We are actually supposed to see temperatures on the plus side of zero today...woo hoo! The sun is supposed to be out and I'm excited about that. We have had so many days of dull, grey and dark this winter. I don't even mind if it snows so much now as you know you are reaching the bottom of winter and spring is just around the corner.

My positives:
Sunshine is promised for today.
Lots of reading time this past weekend.
I see my doctor tomorrow and hopefully will have some answers.
My cranial massage that I had on Saturday has worked wonders on decreasing the pain.
Life...it's a blessing and filled with opportunities to be all that I have been created to be.

Have an awesome day. Remember that you are worthy.

Hugs,
Wanda

March 13

Sunday, March 13, 2011

Serenity Sunday....ahhhhh.

A delightful day yesterday, starting with my monthly massage and then moving into a day spent with Shyra and West Edmonton Mall. I haven't been to the mall for several months, so it was nice to see all the spring and summer stuff that is now filling the stores. Shy managed to find some sweaters on sale, the very thing that we had gone looking for, so she was pleased with her shopping expedition.
We headed back home and stopped for a late lunch. It was so nice to spend time together catching up on things. Then off to the book store to see what was new.
Spent my evenng reading and relaxing, then when Garry got home from work, chatting with him.

My positives:

Time spent with Shyra, giggling and laughing as we usually end up doing.
Time to relax and do some reading.
Today, means time to spend with Garry.
It looks like it will be a sunny day today...hopefully it last the day, yesterday's sunshine was intermitent.
Waking up on the right side of the grass(or in our case, the snow!)
Making wise choices.

Have a wonderful Sunday, take the time to be grateful for your blessings.

Hugs,
Wanda

Time change

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Spring ahead an hour today(or rather tonight). I really dislike the time change. It might give someone else and extra hour of daylight at the end of their day, but it adds an extra hour of dark to my working day! Sigggghhhh.

This morning I am off to have my massage done and then to spend the day with Shyra. YAY.

Once again, we did not get the predicted amount of snowfall over night, yay, that means the roads will be okay to travel on. It also looks like it will be a sun shine day today too...bonus.

My positives:
Its the weekend.
Time with Shyra.
Massage day.
I got to sleep in this morning to 7am.
I'll have time this weekend to plant the rest of my seeds that need to be started indoors.
On load of laundry is done, one more to go.
Being alive and knowing this day is mine to create what I choose.

Have a wonderful Silly Saturday...bring laughter into your life...look for opportunities to smile and laugh.

Hugs,
Wanda

    The time change is such a nuisance. The problem is that half the world wants it and the other half doesn't. I say we should move all the clocks around the world halfway between the two times, and have done with it! :-)
