My husband is mad at me for loaning her the car and he is being a pain. He has never come out and said he just is unsupportive and rather snide about anything involving my getting around. Yesterday I was making plans to take Amtrak/Bart to visit a friend and he was nothing but critical. He wants me to take a bus into town and won't give me a lift. This will add hours to my trip. I blew up and called him on it. H... Sun, 1 Mar 2015 09:32:20 EST No car for me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5884304 It was a long day, but my car is now with my daughter. She is very quiet, but I think she looked relieved. As I told my husband it will give her power. I think the power will help with the stress, which will help with the eating problem. By the end of the semester I expect she will be ready to buy her own car. I do feel better. Thanks for the support! Spark friends are the best! Sat, 28 Feb 2015 14:49:16 EST Sorry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5883343 I posted a blog about a problem and then deleted it. Just too personal, but I needed to get it out. In a nutshell, tomorrow I am taking my car to my daughter in college. It is a loan. Her need is bigger than mine. It's been hard because I don't do well with change, and my hubby doesn't agree with loaning her the car. I just know in my heart it is the right decision. <BR> <BR> So say a prayer that it all works out well and my daughters stress level falls and she starts eating again. <BR... Thu, 26 Feb 2015 20:03:19 EST Ouch!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5813933 I'm feeling much better this week, but the area the taped area around the wound is very red. My husband stated to clean off the area and I literally screamed and jumped away. It still hurts. I have to keep it covered until I see the doctor friday. I'm going to go and ice it. Mon, 10 Nov 2014 01:37:20 EST Went for a walk http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5810012 I took a walk this morning, the only exercise I'm allowed. It is suppose to be a leisurely walked. Growing up I was much shorter than everyone else and I learned to walk quickly or be left behind. It was hard to walk slow. I've finished two novels and about to pick up the next one.

Mon, 3 Nov 2014 12:50:02 EST Stir crazy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5809199 I have to take it crazy because I had a cyst removed off my back. It us never cancerous and removing it was optional. Because of the location I gave to take it easy for 7-10 days so I don't break a suture. I'm going stir crazy. There us nothing to do but watch t, read and eat. I don't know how I will survive 5 more days of sitting around! Sun, 2 Nov 2014 09:02:46 EST Taking it easy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5808654 Yesterday I had a cyst taken off my back. It was deep and the doctor said it was 10-15 years old. Because it was high on the back and between my shoulder blades I have to take it easy for 7-10 days. I feel a little silly, but I'm surprised how exhausted I feel. Sat, 1 Nov 2014 12:01:25 EST Update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5762360 About a week ago I took some dog classes at the spca so I could be a volunteer dog walker. I learned a couple of things I should have taught my dogs, so the lessons began. I too k treats on the walks and the response has been excellent. The funny/odd thing is my very sick dog with the bad limp perked up. He is eating, looks happy again and most of the limp has gone away? I don't understand, but it does my heart good. My friend said she could see the difference. Mon, 18 Aug 2014 19:41:07 EST Amish country http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729173 We decided to skip Philadelphia. The local amtrak has construction near by and parking is difficult. Instead we visited amish country. It was fun. I didn't realize the amish and non-amish live side by side. Having fun! Mon, 30 Jun 2014 15:33:10 EST Lancaster http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728509 Went to hershey Pennsylvania today and now my friend and I are in Lancaster. We are hoping to go to Philadelphia tomorrow. I have been eating too much! Clothes are tight. Sun, 29 Jun 2014 18:11:26 EST Can't sleep http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728087 I'm on vacation and sharing a room with a friend. She sleeps with great ease and I can't sleep. It's almost 1 am and she has been asleep for about 1.5 hours and me nothing. I'm near the door, where the light of my computer won't bother her. I dislike being an insomniac. Sun, 29 Jun 2014 00:53:46 EST Travel time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725185 I'm visiting a friend who us taking me to the airport tonight. I have a night flight to Pittsburgh to go to a cookie cutter convention. I went two years ago and had a great time. I'm excited about my trip. <BR> <BR> For my spark friends that asked, yes I retired last month. I'm sleeping more and feeling better. Tue, 24 Jun 2014 21:41:09 EST Hiding or being truthful http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5682155 I can't sleep because I have something on my mind. In less than two weeks I am scheduled to take a 4 hour class. I've done similar classes like this before and had a great time. However, this time it is different. I'm losing interest in the subject and the class is about a 4.5 hour drive away. With my detour on the way home I will be on the road road for 10 hours, for a 2 day trip. Similar trips before I went with a friend. I'm not sure I want to go. While in the past I have enjoyed ... Mon, 28 Apr 2014 08:14:07 EST My changing life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679061 As some of you know I am retiring in a few weeks. It's exciting and scary. I feel like things are changing more than expected. I had planned to start a cookie decorating blog, but have lost interest in the idea. An opportunity became available and now I am dealing with demons. It isn't easy, but it is a pathway to finding who I am going to be for the next phase of my life. Wed, 23 Apr 2014 23:14:08 EST Change http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5677403 My life is starting to change. I know it will be for the good, but it is scary. Today someone said "if it is scary then that is probably the direction to go." Mon, 21 Apr 2014 21:19:58 EST Return http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5654428 The last few months I have pulled away from spark, only really tracking my exercise. My life is in the process of changing (in a good way) and I'm feeling a little lost. I need to find direction in my life. Last night I was asking myself if I was to concentrate on any one thing what would it be? The answer was my weight/health. I feel bloated and my clothes are too tight. So starting today I will be back on spark and focusing on my weight/health. I know spark can help me if I let it. Sun, 23 Mar 2014 08:57:35 EST
