Lucies ashes

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

Jeff and I picked up Lucies ashes this afternoon. The box is much nicer than I thought it would be and now we are not sure we want to bury it. It put it on top of the fireplace mantle, it is a very hard white plastic with a gold plack that says "My BeLoved Pet" in nice scrip along with a certificate of guarantee that my piet has been cremated privately by the Only Cremations company. There was a very nice poem on the back of the certificate and I only got about half way through it and I started to cry. I had my husband finish reading it for me. I can not believe it has only been one week. Anyway here is the poem:

I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift uplifting rush of
quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Please stand not at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

We send our condolences for the loss of your beloved companion.

I still get teary everytime I read this because Lucy truely was my beloved companion.

Waking up too early

Monday, March 15, 2010

Since Sunday morning I have been getting woke up by my alarm at what I thought was 7:30am. It was so dark but I thought with the time change maybe thats how light it was at that time. I had forgotten that my clock was set for 6:30am instead of my normal 7:30am. So silly of me not to check. I had been bugging my son Frank to make sure his clocks were correct so he wouldn't be late for his college classes and here I was the one who hadn't done my clock correctly. lol Dud OH emoticon

    Aw man, I hate when that happens! emoticon

That's just the sort of thing I would do...Tell everyone else to update their clocks, then forget my own. Hope it didn't inconvenience you too much.

My body is still adjusting. I've gotten on a good eight hours a night regular bedtime streak, but overslept this morning. I hope I'm not lying awake tonight.

Congrats on your 25 pound loss.

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

Saturday, March 13, 2010

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.
