It is a scary thing but something I felt I had to do for my emotional well-being. I am sad though that I couldn't of stayed until I retired but it just wasn't meant to be. <BR> <BR> I hope everyone has a great week. Mon, 19 Feb 2018 20:48:26 EST Pneumonia http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6462088 It turns out I have pneumonia not bronchitis. Yesterday was the first day that I could breath better though I still have shortness of breath at times. I ended up going to walk in again last Thursday and he gave me stronger antibiotics. My other Dr. that I had my regular appointment with on Thursday put me off on sick leave for 4 months, (not because of the pneumonia) but because of the problems I was having at work. I won't be going back after the 4 months, I will quit my job, enough i... Sun, 11 Feb 2018 19:02:23 EST Bronchitis http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6459648 If it doesn't rain, it pours. I finally decided to quit my job, so I took an application in to another company. I have an interview tomorrow during my lunch hour. <BR> <BR> Friday night I started wheezing, so couldn't sleep, then Saturday I found it hard to breathe, Boy that is scary, so didn't sleep Sat night either. I finally slept from 6-9 this morning. I went to walk in and have bronchitis. i slept again from 5-8 this evening so don't know how I will sleep tonight. <BR> <BR> I ... Sun, 4 Feb 2018 21:18:50 EST Weight blanket http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6456581 <BR> I am getting a weighted blanket made. I just picked out the pattern and material so am now just waiting for her to make it and send it. Does anyone have one and how do you like it? I heard it is nice for people who have sleeping issues. <BR> <BR> A co-worker's last day was yesterday. She started a month before me in 2013. We were co workers/friends but haven't been close the last year or so. She drove me crazy to be frank. She was super nosy and childish so I distanced myself from ... Sat, 27 Jan 2018 17:34:48 EST A Good Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6451127 Today was a good day. I paid off my line of credit and then I cancelled it. I originally got it when I had my car and it needed a lot of work. The car actually ended up basically dying and I now don't have a car so I don't need it anymore. <BR> <BR> After the bank I went to the mall and got my hair cut. I had grown my hair long and in December I cut it to my shoulders and today I cut it short, sort of like Kris Jenner's. I then went to the movies to see The Commuter. I haven't been ... Sat, 13 Jan 2018 18:44:03 EST a revelation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6448217 I think I had a revelation today. I had gone to pick up a parcel and the lady told me that I had put the wrong address for the parcel to be sent to, so I explained why I did it that way. She went on to explain I was wrong and what to do next time. I said ok, now I know, I will know what to do next time. In the meantime I had just got groceries and had a taxi waiting, By this time I am sore and tired. Now I realize this has nothing to do with the lady and is not her fault. She, though... Sat, 6 Jan 2018 19:36:02 EST HAPPY NEW YEAR!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6445166 I am spending a quiet day at home with my furbabies. I did laundry and now I am cooking supper. I had planned on going to the movies on my days off but still haven't gone. I don't think I will go tomorrow as no buses are running and taxis are so expensive but who knows maybe I will splurge. <BR> <BR> I wish everyone a Very Happy and Healthy New Year. May all your dreams come true and may this be the year we get rid of the extra weight. Sun, 31 Dec 2017 18:09:39 EST Do you wonder what happens to people you haven't heard from? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6444368 I subscribe to some blogs and even though I don't always comment I look forward to reading them. I LIKE these people and care about them. There were a couple that had health issues and haven't written a blog for a while, so now I am worried. I know there isn't much I can do, I did send a private message but didn't hear back. I keep hoping that one day there will be a new blog by them. I guess that is all I can do. <BR> <BR> Fri, 29 Dec 2017 11:44:22 EST rented a car http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6443858 I rented a car today, I had so many errands to do that there was no way I could use the bus, and taxis would of cost a lot more. I was still so sore and tired by the time I got home. I could of kept the car until tomorrow morning and I considered it but I just wanted to get home and not worry about returning the car. I would of had to return it early as I picked it up early. I do have to go and update my resume tomorrow and drop it off but I will use a taxi. It is just too cold to wait f... Wed, 27 Dec 2017 21:33:05 EST Merry Christmas http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6443185 I think I am staying home today, I can go to my sons but I feel off for some reason. I have to constantly clear my throat which is very annoying to me and probably others. I saw the Dr. on Friday and have meds for it but it can take up to 4-6 weeks, which once I got home I realized that is just too long and wish I had asked for something faster acting. Oh well, just hope this works. <BR> <BR> It is bitterly cold out, the coldest Christmas in over 20 years. With the wind chill it is -41 ... Mon, 25 Dec 2017 12:04:11 EST 1st day of holidays http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6442488 I have had a busy day today, my first day of holidays. I had a Dr appointment, then had to have my ear flushed and that didn't get finished as my ear was starting to get too sore. Had to have a test done for high blood pressure to see if my meds needed to be upped, then back to the Dr. for the prescriptions. Got my prescriptions filled (so I thought) then went to Walmart. I don't know what it is about that place but I spend wayyyy too much every time I go and can never figure out how I en... Fri, 22 Dec 2017 16:42:29 EST Hair cut http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6440872 I got my hair cut today, not short but shorter than it was, It had gotten quite long so got it cut to my shoulders. I will probably go back soon and get it cut real short (like pixie short ), This is what I do, I grow it long then cut it super short. I think though that this is the longest my hair has been (until I cut it today). <BR> <BR> I have 4 more days to work then I am off until the new year. I know many people would be happy with this but when I started my job we shut down fo... Sat, 16 Dec 2017 20:29:58 EST 3 Good Things http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6436829 Name three good things that happened today or 3 things you are thankful for: <BR> <BR> 1. Today I am thankful for my kitties (ALWAYS thankful for my furbabies) <BR> 2. Thankful for a hot shower <BR> 3. Happy that I got to stay home all day <BR> Sat, 2 Dec 2017 18:46:01 EST Co-worker passed away http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6435939 Today was a sad day at work. We got news a co-worker passed away yesterday. She hadn't been well for a while though I didn't know it was that serious. There was no other info besides the fact she died. She was the same age as me and she started work a week and a half after I did. Her birthday was this past Saturday and she died Tuesday. We weren't really friends but still it was a shock. <BR> <BR> I am also not feeling great with a cold, though I shouldn't complain, I haven't had a...

Would you rather be feared by all or loved by all? loved by all <BR> <BR> 25. Would you rather know when you are going to die or how you are going to die? (You cant change the time or method of your death) When <BR> <BR> 26. Would you rather be transported permanently 500 years into the future or 500 years into the past? This one is tricky, 500 years into the future is a total unknown, and 500 years into the past from the little I know from history is not t... Sun, 19 Nov 2017 21:36:53 EST New Ipad http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6432848 I just got home from buying a new Ipad. My other one won't even turn on now. i do have a laptop but I don't like it and don't know how long it will last even though it will only be 1 year old in January. It is the 1st time I bought a leveno and it will be the last. Did not like it from the beginning. I use the Ipad more as a back up and with mine dying and me not trusting this laptop I couldn't imagine being without any computer. I also like the ipad for when I am out and about and want... Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:09:10 EST Part 1 Would you rather? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6432369 I saw this on pinterest and thought it would be fun to do and I would love to see other peoples answers too. Some of the questions are shall we say unpleasant. Remember I didn't come up with the questions, I am just posting them, feel free to skip the ones you don't feel comfortable with. There are too many questions to put in one blog so will break them up in different blogs. <BR> <BR> Ok here goes: <BR> <BR> 1. Would you rather always be 10 minutes late of always be 20 minutes early? 2... Fri, 17 Nov 2017 21:37:41 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6430371 I am enjoying my week-end. This usually would be my week-end to get groceries but since I got groceries Wednesday I don't have to leave my apartment. It snowed a lot yesterday and there is sheer ice underneath the snow, it is so icy and hard to walk. I ordered ice grips for my shoes but they aren't here yet I hope they are here next week-end. I have lots of housework to do but I do that in increments as I can't stand for any length of time and tire very easily. I am going to the Dr. w... Sat, 11 Nov 2017 11:54:39 EST Dr. appointment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6429558 I am sooo tired. I had a Dr. appointment out of town today, so because our greyhound service has drastically cut services I rented a car. So I picked it up early, got groceries and went to the mall to pick up next year's calendars. Unloading groceries was a chore and a half. Make a long story short it took me 30 minutes from the car to my apartment. Lets just say that this does include stairs. By the time I was done I was so sore and tired and i hadn't even left town yet. I also smas... Wed, 8 Nov 2017 20:55:54 EST Just biding my time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6425950 I made the week, didn't think I would. Wednesday I was so upset that on Thursday morning when I went to work I thought it would be my last day. I was waiting for my supervisor to harass and bully me again and I was just going to get up and leave. I have had enough, but he didn't come near me all day. I think he knew I was furious. Friday he joked and smiled at me but I know that won't last. That place is psychotic. One week you are the best thing since slice bread and then you are the ... Sat, 28 Oct 2017 19:11:39 EST One of those days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6425038 Well it was one of those days at work and I am just about at the end of my patience. I have just about had my fill of that place. I am seeing what other options I have, I just want to try and leave on good terms but it is getting harder and harder. If I could afford it I would take time off just to catch my breath and decide what I am going to do. Oh well, it is what it is and this too shall pass. Wed, 25 Oct 2017 19:33:08 EST 10/22/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6423981 Well I did get more done today, not as much as I wanted but better than nothing. I am going to do more housework in the morning before work and a little after work so that next week-end I can get more deep cleaning done. <BR> <BR> One of my favorite shows starts tonight: The Walking Dead. Love that show. <BR> <BR> Well have a great week sparkies. Sun, 22 Oct 2017 18:04:07 EST 10/21/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6423694 The only constructive thing I did today was laundry and change the kitty litter. I did walk to my pedicure appointment which technically isn't far but farther than what I usually walk, when I walked home I stopped for lunch at a restaurant. The food was soooo good but the calories were soooo bad. My knees were so sore and I was so tired by the time I got home. Didn't sleep all that well either. I hope I am more productive tomorrow. <BR> <BR> I have been coloring lately and it does se... Sat, 21 Oct 2017 19:16:49 EST 10/9/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6419705 I went to my son's for Thanksgiving yesterday. We had turkey and all the trimmings, though DIL forgot the stuffing, didn't matter though. Still ate too much. <BR> <BR> The last few days have been typical fall days. Windy, leaves falling, cooler temps. Nice to sleep, I like it cool to sleep. <BR> <BR> Back to work tomorrow but having today off makes it a shorter week, which is always good. <BR> <BR> Have a great week everyone. <em>593</em> Mon, 9 Oct 2017 11:21:33 EST 10/6/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6418795 I got to leave early today as I had 2 hours overtime and 2 hours for my birthday. I thought I might have to pick a different day but my boss let me choose Friday. Monday is our Thanksgiving so it is a long week-end, making it even better. <BR> <BR> I am not going anywhere, just going to do laundry and get my apartment cleaned up. <BR> <BR> I hope everyone has a great week-end whether it is a long one or not. <em>428</em> <em>574</em> Fri, 6 Oct 2017 17:26:18 EST 10/1/17 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6416791 I worked 2 hours overtime this past week. Since my employer won't pay overtime I will get 2 hours off this week, actually I will get 4 hours as I get 2 hours off for my birthday and since I couldn't take it the week of my actual birthday since we needed the hours at work, I will take them this week. I would like to take the 4 hours this Friday but so will everyone else so I doubt I will get to use them Friday. It would be extra nice too since next Monday is Thanksgiving so a long week-end.... Sun, 1 Oct 2017 01:48:56 EST 5 Mantras For Reducing Stress http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6414692 5 Healing Mantras for reducing stress: <BR> <BR> 1. All situations are temporary. Nothing lasts forever. We know this intellectually. Plants die. Hot cups of tea grow cold. Everything is always in transition. <BR> <BR> 2. When you've done millions of pro/con lists and you've flipped coins hoping that you'll know which choice is the one you want before the coin hits the ground, but you come out empty handed, you might need to know that there is no such thing as a wrong decision. <BR> <B... Sun, 24 Sep 2017 22:19:11 EST Lunch http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6414336 Today is my birthday and my oldest son and 3 grandchildren took me out to lunch, which was so nice. My DIL had to work. I am going through some "stuff" right now so am feeling depressed but today it did cheer me up, for awhile anyway. I got to see my oldest granddaughter as well as she was at work in the mall where we went for lunch. After lunch I bought some books from the bookstore though I think now I have read one of them. Also stopped at the drug store to pick up some sleeper earri... Sat, 23 Sep 2017 21:36:39 EST This too shall pass http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6414043 I just have to remember that this too shall pass. Nothing stays the same, bad times come and bad times go but I can hardly wait for the bad times to go. Fri, 22 Sep 2017 22:45:30 EST Air conditioner http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6409681 Well, I did something dumb this morning. I have a portable air conditioner and I have it sitting on a tv stand so that it sits higher up facing my bed. I noticed that it was right on the edge, so I just reached over and tried to push it up a bit and it came crashing to the ground. I don't know if it still works or not as it is very heavy, so I am waiting until my son can come and look at it. I won't set it up again this year as it is just about the middle of September though 2 days this w... Sun, 10 Sep 2017 13:21:14 EST Peaches http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6402020 I bought a small basket of peaches on Friday. They are so juicy and so good. I wish I lived closer to the grocery store to go buy more but it is too far to walk and major pain to take the bus so only get them when I do my grocery shop for 2 weeks. <BR> <BR> I found my 2 lb dumbbells this morning so I lifted them for 50 reps. I might also get on my recumbent bike for a bit too. <BR> <BR> Have a great week sparkpeeps. <em>593</em> Sun, 20 Aug 2017 16:14:26 EST Over ate today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6398778 Geez, wrote a blog and poof it disappears just as I am going to post it. Very annoying. <BR> <BR> I went over on my calories today. I ate healthy just ate too much of it. I was hungry though. Oh well tomorrow is a new day. <em>593</em> Fri, 11 Aug 2017 18:50:55 EST 7/8/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6384859 I have been tracking my food, but I am doing something a bit different. I am not tracking my fruits and vegetables. I will see how this goes and if I see little or no difference then I will track them as well. I am eating more fruits and veggies. <BR> <BR> I couldn't see if I was losing or not as I lost the back to my scale when I went to put in new batteries, can't find it anywhere, so finally bought another scale yesterday so will see how my experiment is doing. <em>593</em> Sat, 8 Jul 2017 13:23:29 EST 7/3/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6382985 My sister is recuperating from her surgery. She is now starting to feel better, so I feel relieved it is over and she is doing ok. <BR> <BR> I had today off as Canada Day was Saturday so we got today off. I only work 3 days this week as we have Fridays off during July and August. The only downside is I am working 9 hour days but is will be nice to have 3 day week-ends. <BR> <BR> I have been tracking my food and it sure helps to keep track as I can see where I need to change how muc... Mon, 3 Jul 2017 21:40:04 EST 6/28/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6380972 I am just waiting to hear word on how my sister is after surgery. She had surgery for an obstructed bowel and she is quite elderly so it is kind of scary. She is 22 years older than I am, she is the second oldest and I am the youngest. I am counting on that old saying no news is good news. I left a message for my nephew to call me so hope he calls soon. <BR> <BR> I have started tracking my food. It helps to keep me accountable and to see where I am over doing it. I am watching my f... Wed, 28 Jun 2017 20:53:47 EST 6/9/17 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6373108 I am glad it is Friday. It was a hard week at work. I have to go to Walmart tomorrow to buy a present for my gs birthday. He will be 5 on the 14th. They had a birthday party for him last Saturday but I will go for supper on his birthday. Not sure what to get a 5 year old. <BR> <BR> I need to do some de-cluttering. I just never seem to have the energy during the week and before I know it the week-end is over. But I will get some done this week-end come hell or high water as the sayin... Fri, 9 Jun 2017 22:11:17 EST 5/22/2017 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6365136 I got my first week back at work and it did go a lot quicker than I thought it would. I got off early on Friday. We played a game that we play when we are getting close to getting our hours in. It is called, get ready- game Friday. When we get our sales for whatever project we are on we get to go home. Friday it was whenever our lunch time was and mine was at 1:00 so I got to leave then. I went and got groceries and then picked up a card sent from my son at the bus depot. <BR> <BR> S...

I know some countries don't value animals like we do. I am not judging them as I don't know their circumstances or why they believe the way they do. I am just hoping that some day all countries learn to treat animals with respect and kindness. Sun, 21 May 2017 15:35:31 EST Back to work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6362114 Today it has been 3 months since I had my surgery. The dr. has me off until June 1st but I am going back today because I don't want my hours changed at work and was told if someone is off for more than 3 months they will change your hours at work. Not too happy about it, I sure liked staying home. Mon, 15 May 2017 07:43:48 EST Being a better person and being happy is closely related http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6336962 Being a better person and being happy is closely related. Here are everyday's essentials, kind of like a "Best of" list. Remember these things! Write them down if it helps. <BR> <BR> Faith <BR> Trust that everything happens for a reason. It always does. Sometimes you are lucky enough and get to find out why something happened a certain way, other times it won't be as obvious. The reason is there none the less. <BR> <BR> Awareness <BR> Try to be aware of the special moments, no matter how sm... Tue, 21 Mar 2017 21:41:47 EST Busy day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6332491 Well I got my stitches out last Tuesday but I ended up canceling physio on Wednesday as I couldn't get a cab for my Tues appointment, I had to get my son to take me for my appointment and as the roads were still terrible I figured it would be difficult to get a cab Wednesday, so I rescheduled for today. That was very painful, I had to keep telling myself don't cry and I didn't, I managed to get through it. The therapist told me they don't do individual therapy anymore, just the 1st one as t...

Ugh, and of course I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow to get my stitches out. Then Wednesday I have my 1st physio appointment, though I am sure the storm will have passed by then, just that the roads will be treacherous. <BR> <BR> Yesterday when I was still in bed I started to think was I supposed to make my appointment last week to get my stitches out? and then I had to laugh at myself, cause I realized, well if ...

Surgery went well but did have a few issues in the hospital. I am glad to be home and just have to brave the outside but I don't have to go out for a few days anyway. <BR> <BR> I still haven't been able to apply for unemployment as my job hasn't sent me my roe, they also haven't sent my last check, They keep telling me Monday, which was the last 2 Mondays, but nothing yet. I am not impressed. <BR> <BR> I still have quite a bit ...

I hope I don't forget anything. I am charging my book light, cell and Ipad. I got my hair braided today and put more money on my bus pass. I know I won't be using the bus too much for a week or 2 at least but I will be ready when I do. I got cash for taxis too. Met the lady last night who is going to feed my furbabies, my one baby knows something is going on, he is acting out. He is meowing and not wanting to settle do...
