Not too busy today

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

Went to CVS and the post office this morning. Talked to my friend Irene, she was on her walk so I got up after speaking with her and did 2 of my walking videos. I am worried about my dog and don't like to be gone too long without anyone at home. My son's college classes start at 11am and he leaves at 10am. So I am thinking if I make it to the gym by 8am I can be back within an hour of his leaving. I am not a morning person when it comes to exercising but will do when I have to.


Cleaning day

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Did all the house cleaning today except the bathrooms. Packed Jeffs suitcase for his trip up to Tulare where he will be working until near the end of Feb. He will be back in time for his birthday on the 6th of March. I will have to think of something to do for him??!!
I am still taking Lucy on our daily walks, just don't know how much longer she will be able to go. She is throwing up more often too.
Talked to Irene and Cora today. Found out from Cora that her son James lost his job a while back but didn't tell her and Jim about it for about a month. He is not getting unemployment because he was fired for being late too many times and something she doesn't know about.
Too bad James had worked at the local library since he was in high school and he is 25 now.
Will be tough to find a job when you have been fired for tardiness and ?????
That is all for now, may call Samra and she how she is doing in OK.

Thanks for the Avatar review, if it's still playing tomorrow I'm going to the cheap matinee as a treat for myself.

Wow I have to say that is movie is just fantastic. My friend Irene and I saw it 3D which I think is the best 3D I have ever seen in my life. When you are watching it you forget that most of the movie was done on blue/green screen and isn't real. A must see for anybody.


Woke with the energy to hit the gym but wasn't able to make it.

I was ready to go to the gym this morning at 8am but the husband called and said our friend Bob would be stopping by sometime in the morning and I had to be here. By 10am he still hasn't called so I called his home. Pat his wife answered and called him, called me back to say he would make by noon. I was thinking I could have gone to the gym and run my errands this morning and still have been home in time to catch him. When he did show up it was 5 mins to noon.
I went and ran my errands and just came home and did 2 exercise dvds for 7 miles. My son Frank and I also took the dogs. Lucy had to sit after about 6 houses and then sat down a total of 6 times today to rest for about a min. I am at a point where I really do not think she will make it to the end of Feb at this point. Her back legs were a bit shaky and she already has trouble coming in the doggy door. If someone is in the kitchen she will stick her head inside so we will know she is out there waiting. I guess at night she gets herself inside on her own but would rather someone let her inside. She is such a sweet, sweet girl but it is getting harder and harder for her to go on these walks even with cutting them down to 1/4 of what they were even a month ago. I just know if I tried to leave her at home it would break her heart and she would give up.


Woke up with no energy!

I did my weight workout today but besides taking the dogs on a short walk I haven't felt much like exercising. Maybe I was stress from all the crap that happen yesterday. I don't think I even put on my blog yesterday that I also dropped my DL on the driveway and didn't know it. My friend who lives one house over, her 9 yr old daughter found it and returned it. I was like great just another thing.
My husband had a friend of his come over to work on my door lock this morning. Doug worked on it for about an hr and was sure it had it all fixed. He closed the door and locked and it wouldn't open again. Finally open again and we all decided I won't be locking it for a while. Doug brough his wife Liz along, now I love these two people to death and they would do anything for you. But they are both so hyper (I am hyper so you know if I say this, these two are really over the top) I get tired being around them sometime.
After they left I went to the ATM for money for my hubby and came home ate lunch and realized how tired I was. With Lupus you don't want to ignore how you feel because you can have flare ups.
My son Frank and I did take the dogs for a short walk. We don't go very far anymore because Lucy gets so tired. She insists on going but after about 4 houses she walks like a person using a walker, very slowly. By the time we get home she is breathing pretty hard for hardly walking. I worry about her but if I didn't take her and only took Phred the Wonder Dog, Lucy would be so upset. I don't know how much longer she has but if wants to walk 2 houses I will take her. I really love this dog, she is the best!

    I'm sorry you're having a bad few days!

I have a car with driver's side door lock problems. I get out and close the driver's door, then open the driver's side back door, reach through to the front to the driver's window/door, and push down the lock, which locks all four doors, then shut the passenger door, carefully making sure my keys are in my hand first. To unlock I use the key in passenger door, pick up the umbrella always left in the front passenger seat for this purpose, and open the driver's door by using the tip of the umbrella to reach across to the lock pull-up thingies. So it's a pain. My car mechanic is going to replace the lock on the driver's side, so I'll have two keys, one for the lock, and one for the ignition. That's the cheapest way to go, unfortunately (for my car). So I feel you.

For Lucy maybe you could take a shorter walk with her and drop her back off at the house while keeping the other one leashed, then continuing for the rest of the normal amt of walking with the other dog? Lucy would be so tired when she gets home that she would collapse and not care (or care less) that you were still outside with the other dog, and, at least she wouldn't feel left behind when you go with the other one. Of course you could walk her separately the first time and then take the other one . . .
