It is 2nd hand,. I haven't even seen it yet, just a picture. It was advertised on a local web site. Since I don't have a car and it is Sunday it makes it difficult to go look at things and the owner said he would deliver it so am taking a chance it is ok. I will see it before he brings it in so I can say no if I don't like the look of it though it would be better to try it first. <BR> <BR> I had to make room for it and kind of just threw ... Sun, 27 Nov 2016 15:32:14 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6265773 I cancelled my order for the IPad. I just can't afford it right now and if I go for surgery in January I will be off work for a few weeks. Also one of the companies we work for might be bought out so not sure if the new company will hire my company to do the calling for them. Time will tell. <BR> <BR> I went grocery shopping today, I am going to change things up to see if my weight will start dropping again. My knees are both so sore right now as I did quite a bit of walking. I als...

Sun, 6 Nov 2016 14:37:21 EST fire/smoke http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6262491 I live in an apartment building and someone or more tried to start a fire in our entrance way. My apartment is right next to this area. I heard the alarm and when I opened the door I did think I smelt smoke but wasn't sure, when I checked a few minutes later it was all smoky in the hallway. I put my cats in their kennels and when I looked again the smoke was even heavier. At this time I didn't know where the smoke was coming from. I thought it came from someones apartment. I grabbed ...

This blog is for me to vent so please ignore if you don't want to "listen". I am writing this blog to get things that are bottled up out. <BR> <BR> I work at a place where we call people who have services with a company and offer them other services they don't yet have. (yes, I am the hated telemarketer) <BR> <BR> Basically my company is hired by 2 other companies to call their customers to sell more of their services. I admit I am not as "persistent" as they would like but... Sat, 5 Nov 2016 01:16:43 EST Dr. appt yesterday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6260169 I saw the Anesthesiologist yesterday. He was a very nice Dr. he explained things and answered any questions I had. He said it was great how I had lost weight because not many people do even though it makes recovery easier and the results last longer. He figures I will probably have the surgery in a couple of months. Now I am getting nervous and scared. I will be glad when it is over.

I think I will have to change things up a bit, like move more and start weighing my food. Really watching my food portions. <BR> I have an appointment for the anesthetist tomorrow ahead of my surgery. It is just preliminary as I am not yet scheduled for my knee replacement. I am guessing I will have the surgery sometime in the spring. I am trying ...

(Explain.) <BR> My response to this Day will be will be sort of like my response to Day 16. I couldn't live without my children. There is nothing or no one I love as much as them.

I use a walker so that helps a lot. After work I came home had supper then got ready for aqua fit. Watched The Voice until my friend picked me up at 8 to go swim. Now I am finishing watching The Voice and unwinding then I am going to bed.

Why Do You Like Them? <BR> I have a few adult coloring books and occasionally color. I like it because it occupies my mind. I don't do it enough though. I should do it more often. I would like to learn to crochet but don't have time now to learn. <BR> <BR> Day 21: Write About Your Most Embarrassing Moments. <BR> I don't think I will answer this one, because if I do then I will be embarrassed all over again. hmmm no thanks. Sun, 23 Oct 2016 14:43:28 EST Gratitude http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6255498 I am feeling out of sorts for various reasons so thought i would write about what I am grateful for to get out of this mood I am in. <BR> <BR> Today I am grateful for : 1.

(Explain each answer.) <BR> I have read so many books it is hard for me to pick one or even really remember a particular book. I actually remember reading a non fiction book about the novelist writing about what is was like to live in Greece many years ago. I read this book so long ago I can't remember if it was actually about himself living there or his family. It was a very thick book but it was so interesting a...

(Explain.) <BR> My biggest fear is losing one of my children. I could not and would not want to live without them. I had both sons by the time I was 18 and it feels like I've had them all my life. I love them more than life itself. <BR> <BR> Day 17: Write About Someone/Something You Miss. <BR> I miss my Dad. He died when I was 12. My mom had mental issues and my 3 sisters were grown and out of the house so I was then left alone with her. My Dad ... Sat, 22 Oct 2016 09:52:48 EST Aqua fit http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6254695 I went to aqua fit last night with my friend/co-worker. I am really enjoying it. They have different instructors and my favorite was last night. He is a young man (kid to me) and is very involved and makes it fun but you get a good work out with him. The 2 women that taught the other 2 nights were no where near as good as he makes it. They just kind of go through the motions it seems and are not really interested. Oh well, I will still go, it is better than sitting on the couch watching...

(Why?) <BR> I only have 1 best friend. I have other friends/acquaintances but just one best friend. I met her when my ex husband was transferred. We met not in the best way as my husband and I were not getting along and she was a councilor at the crisis center. My husband hadn't been physically abusive but was being mentally abusive. She became my councilor and it turned into a best friend relationship. We don't live in the same community anymore but...

(Write about anything you choose.) <BR> A co-worker/friend and I started aqua fit a week ago last Wednesday. It is twice a week Mon/Wed. We didn't go this past Mon as it was Thanksgiving. We went again this past Wed and it was with a different teacher and he was way better than the lady we had over a week ago. I hope we can go tomorrow night but not sure if my friend has to look after her grandchildren. I would go myself but she is my ride. I could go on the bus but...

I think I read about it somewhere, not sure if it was on the internet or in a magazine. <BR> <BR> Day 9: What Is One Thing You Use Every Day? My computer. But I use the tv everyday also.

Don't ask. <BR> Sun, 16 Oct 2016 00:02:08 EST Blog Challenge 6 and 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6252162 Day 6: What Is Your Favorite Quote. (Explain.) One of my favorite quotes is "This too shall pass" One time at work, I was going through a particularly bad time at work and this quote helped me get through it.

(It's okay, you can trust us fellow Sparkers We won't tell anyone.) One of my biggest secrets is that I am sad. I am usually successful in keeping it hidden so most people don't know. I am not sad alll the time, usually it take the form of melancholy but I work at finding ways to feel content and when I am at home I usually do feel that contentment. It is a work in progress. <BR> <BR> Day 5: What Are Your Obsessions? (Explain why.) My obse...

(Explain) <BR> <BR> At this point in my life I am closest to my cats. They love me unconditionally as I love them unconditionally. I live alone and spend a lot of time by myself when I am not working. They are great company and they both love to cuddle. <BR> <BR> If the question had been what/who do I love the most, it would be my children, of course. My children are both grown and one lives far from me. I will never love anyone or anything as much a... Sat, 8 Oct 2016 15:58:50 EST Blog challenge day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6245237 Day 2: Your Dream Profession. (Go into detail and explain your answer.) I mentioned this in previous blog. I always wanted to be a lawyer or psychologist. Why? Sometimes I like to debate (some call it arguing) so of course to be a lawyer you would have to be able to debate/argue very well. As a lawyer I would like to try both sides of the fence though if I thought a defendant was truly guilty and I was their lawyer I don't know how I could defend them. If it was for any kind of abuse...

I am just mush when it comes to them. I love all animals and feel guilty even thinking of what is my favorite animal. The top 5 are in no particular order are dogs, cats, horses, donkeys (miniature in particular) pigs and rabbits. I know that is 6 but it is too difficult to limit it to 5. I have owned all the above except for a pig. Maybe one day. <BR> <BR> 2. I love crime shows. Particularly true stories. Some of...

Someone I hired will bring it home tomorrow night after work. I am working until 6:30 this week to make up the 3 hours I took for my Dr.'s appointment. Tomorrow is my last day of 9 hour days. I was taking 1/2 lunches and staying 1/2 later at night and I will be caught up after tomorrow.

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 21:33:38 EST Sunday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6241790 My 60th birthday was Friday. I cannot believe I am that age.

The rest of the weekend I just did some housework and started watching season 6 of The Walking Dead on Netflix.

It is a boring job so am always doodling or of course wanting to munch on something. I try to take good snacks and only eat when I am hungry. It varies on what I take to snack on. For lunch I usually have a frozen dinner and have started adding cucumbers to the meal. That does seem to make the meal more tastier. Dinners are either chicken breast, turkey burger or fish. Once in a while I will have bacon and eggs with toast though the ...

I got employee of the month for being polite, friendly and I can't remember the 3rd. The end of the day ended sadly. As I was leaving work I saw a co-worker carrying a cat that had been hit by a car. It was so sad. The kitty was still alive but very badly hurt. I was sobbing and didn't know what to do. Her and her husband took the cat to the vet. I will find out Monday what happened but I am pretty sure he/she would of had to be put down. <BR> <BR> As I think...

I feel so bad that I had to ask my sister to come take me. I so appreciate that she is doing this as it is a great inconvenience for her. She is retired so that is good.
