Blockbuster rentals

Sunday, March 14, 2010

My husband and I went to rent movies today at our local B and after renting them did the clerk tell me that today was the last day they would be renting movies. What is the store closing, I asked him? No we will be here until maybe Oct but only for buying dvd's. We don't have cable or satellite or netflix, you get the picture we are going to maybe go ahead and get netflix for $9 a month. This really kills me because now if I want to rent something I can't just go and do it. I have to have someplace pick from my list and mail it to me. Yeah $9 is cheaper than renting 3 movies like we did today but convenience of having the store within walking distant from the house was real nice. Sort of bummed.
We only have 1 credit card for emergencies and vacations but will have to use just to get movies. My husband is pissed off. One reason we don't have cable, ect is because he doesn't like paying for anything he or we can get for free.


Bowling for MS

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Today I went with my husband Jeff bowling for MS. One of his bosses called and asked if we would be interested and of course we said "Yes". We had a lot of fun and I got to meet some more of the guys and gals that my husband works with.
It was a lot of fun.
Some may know I have Lupus but I have also been diagnosed with MS by 2 different doctors. My current doctors, the Rhumatologist and Neurologist just sort of ingnore the MS for now. With so many problems from Lupus, why go looking for troubles. The only problems I seem to have from MS is that over the years my toes no longer bend. Which is one of the reasons I don't bowl too much anymore but still love to do it.
The weather was just OK today, with a cool almost cold breeze blowing. The sun was warm but driving with the windows down or being in the shade it was down right cold (I know for all of you where it snows, you will laugh) but for me who has thin blood from living in the S.CA all my life. I was cold!

    I used to live in CA and know what you mean. When you live in a warmer climate, the cold just seems to sink into your bones. Also, you're not really prepared for it the way you are in the places with more of a temperature range. It's kind of relative.

Got up late today

Why I didn't get up til 10am, I forgot to open my curtains when I took my morning medications at 7:30am and fell back to sleep. Oh well. I took the Phredster for a little bit longer walk this morning and the same afternoon walk. I am trying to get him use to walking on the sidewalk on the busy street. He is and has always been a nervous nelly when walking on the busy streets around here. If a big truck or bus drives by he shrinks down with his tail between his legs. I am hoping this will improve with time. Lucy was never this way and the few times we took him on the busy street with Lucy he was less nervous with her around. He will even try to jump on to be held. I want him to learn to relax and enjoy the walks around the neighborhoods. I sure it will just take some time to get him use to the noisey automobiles.


Another sunny day

Thursday, March 11, 2010

It was a real beautiful day here in Anaheim, CA (the OC). Nice to be able to walk without a jacket. In the afternoon there was a breeze which was nice. The weathermen say it might rain yet again this weekend or not. We have had rain every weekend for about 5 weeks straight. The southland really, really needed the rain so I am not complaining too much. I hope to hear from my friend Irene about walking tomorrow morning.
I started coughing during my afternoon walk with Phred the Wonder Dog, it is the short walk, but I guess my lungs just needed to still cough. I am feeling a lot better but it seems once I start moving around I start to cough some more.
I hope this thing is gone completely by Monday because I look forward to getting back into the gym.


Started walking again today

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Well it was a sad day in our house yesterday and all things must pass on, but it still was so difficult. Lucy went out like the lady she was and I was a crying mama. We decided to have her cremated and will get her ashes in about 10 days. We will then bury her under her favorite tree in the backyard.
We were gonna bring her home and bury her. I think that once she was dead my husband just couldn't handle the idea of bringing her back here dead. We would have spent the afternoon digging the hole and I just think he wasn't able to do it.
It made it a bit easier on me too. He said I was the brave one because I was able to make the decision when it became necessary. When our other dog died a number of years ago, she had been in so much pain but he could not bring himself to have her put to sleep. She suffered a lot because he just couldn't do what really needed to be done for the dog.
I am going to try and walk Phred 2 times a day. A longer walk in the morning and a shorter one in the afternoon. Phred is still looking around for Lucy. Jeff got rid of Lucy's food and water bowls, along with her blanket. He felt Phred would get the idea better that she wasn't coming back if her stuff wasn't around.
We did keep her doggy pillow we got her for this past Christmas.
