Due to the emotional aspect of this task, I can not do it full time. I see that I am making a difference. I just gave to charity my business suits which I wore and were in fabulous shape. I held on to them b/c it was a time in my life that I enjoyed and I felt powerful, but very stressed. I never thought I would retire and stay retired. I found wigs in my closest which I bought when my hair was thinning. I am sending them to a charity ...

My prayers go out to their families. <em>220</em> DS took his wheel chair which is a sport model. DS wanted this wheel chair which helped him with his image of not being helpless. Due to the uneven side walks and holes with construction, he fell out of his wheel chair more than once. He said "Mom NO one helped me." Every one just walked around me.

I do not ask for much but I thoroughly enjoy watching the races. I do not bet but have watched them since childhood. My Dh knows that but today he is doing chores. But he can not do things quietly or without asking me this or that. Now it is the sandbox, he wants to get rid of it. He says the grand kids do not play with it. We live in a very young neighborhood. I told him to ask our neighbors if they want it. The sandbox is in excellent shape....

I just said enough. I know he was anxious about the trip but both of them had dropped out of counseling and I thought enough is enough. I am not spending any assistance in their relationship. I do not contact him but he starts texting me. I do not respond. They are adults and I am sleeping better. Young people expect immediate cures for everything. they ar...

I lost it and I am going to get it back. I have not taken the time. My family is a series of stressers. <BR> Each of them have impacted my life with their problems. I push back, that is your problem to work it out. I have to focus on me again. I had a long talk with DH. He says why can't you sleep.

When he told me that he would going to NYC for the graduation. I thought he will never make it. With PTSD, you need to take baby steps b/c her family insists DS he must go. I stayed out of it, but it got huge today. I told her to go and leave him home b/c with PTSD NYC is overwhelming. She dropped out of counseling and so did my DS again. They will not make it. Too immature and nothing much in common. She comes to visit with a...

He is near his goal. I just wish he would learn to enjoy life more. I am taking my GD to tea and wanted to check out the café to see the layout b/4 tomorrow. I told him that we go and have some tea. He makes faces and then says he had so much to do this weekend. Give me a break. He is turning into such an old man set in his ways. I am going to ask again. I think with this enhanced internet speed there must be a baseball game that he wants t... Sat, 4 Jun 2016 11:55:48 EST enhanced our internet so it was down for hours. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6175980 Good evening; we finally got the internet back. DH wanted to stream his baseball games. It was a tough reboot of our system. DH started getting really hyper. I told her to settle down and just relax - deep breathe. He gets upset and says he is going to his office. I said to him your ballgame is coming on in one hour. He comes back down. I told him remember the talk we had this weekend. You do not need to get all hyper. It is not life and death. I just feel it is a bad habit he has gott... Fri, 3 Jun 2016 19:17:29 EST WOW what a workout this morning! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6175017 Good Morning; as many of you know, I had a severe injury earlier this year. I can tell I have fully recovered in the amount of exercise I am able to do now.

DH climbed to the crown. We walked the High Line round trip which was 5 miles. I love to walk and exercise. I used to hate it. But I h...

I have some plans. DS is going to call me later to tell me about his first night with C-PAP machine. He was excited. I think there will be some adjustment - he is not used to sleeping with a mask. He really has been sleep deprived for years. I have prayed for him to get some relief for so long. He is someone I admire b/c he chose to go to Iraq - honored his country and his unit. But as his mother, I knew there was such a great possibilty he would c...

She was so proud. I brought flowers for her. I made a big deal about her and thanked her for inviting Nana and grandpa. The performance brought back memories of her mother. Afterward, we were invited to lunch. I made good choices the best I could at a buffet which we did not know. We thought we could have ordered from a menu. Today, I am eating much cleaner and tracking. I have much to do. Have a good day!!!

I went and talked to them b/c where they put the string across my front yard, our tree roots wou...

They are putting in cable and knew they would get to our home sometime. The neighbors have informed me that the noise is deafening. Oh well, I want to work on one of my bedrooms which I use as storage to down size things again. I am going through a phase which I want to get rid of stuff that I do not use.

He goes in the morning. He likes to talk in the morning b/4 he leaves for work. I got up and went on my regular gym routine. I am not changing for him. I have to exercise when and how it is beneficial to me. He gets needy but I have to come first. I talked to him on the phone just now. I think he is starting to be aware that he is wearing me out with all his complaining about work. <em>104</em> I am proud of myself. I am doing w... Tue, 17 May 2016 08:48:46 EST wonderful HB for DS but found out some news about a friend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6163957 Good Morning; The small HB party for my son went well. He is more positive that he is getting a Cpap machine. I wish he could get one tomorrow but it will be over a week more. He looked so exhausted. He was cordial and very social with the family. DD came and was very nice to her brother. The grand kids were wonderful. <em>104</em> My friend called- I have known this person for 30 years. She tells me she is having an affair and her husband knows and approves. What kind of deal is tha...

I was one of only 2 people to have come. My GD was over the moon. My GS saw me there and went to his teacher and pointed to me. I went into his room b/c he wanted to come with me. Teacher released him so he joined me to watch his sister. He was wonderful. I video taped parts and sent them to my DD.

GD is having a dress rehearsal of her dance recital coming up soon. Since I am already picking the grand kids, I have decided to go early and see the dress rehearsal. I remember when I was working, I did not come to all the activities b/c of work. Same is true about my DD, she has to choose the activities that she can see. My grand daughter is very appreciative of me coming. In fact, she looks for me and then waves when she sees me. I am proud that I ... Tue, 10 May 2016 13:18:21 EST had a wonderful weekend and workout http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6159335 Good Morning; it is amazing when I put myself first and take care of me, everyone around me fall in line. I have noticed this time and time again. So why do I not keep them up and fall off the wagon and put myself lower in pecking order. The answer is the way I was raised. Even though I have been through counseling which I am very proud of, there are times I regress usually when I am stressed and do not stay in the present. For today, I am present in my life and enjoying me. I am organ... Mon, 9 May 2016 11:11:29 EST Happy Mother's Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6158676 Good Morning; I got flowers and a facetime from my grandkids this morning. My DH gave me a poem. I am going to the gym today. I will also take a lovely bubble bath later. I do not want to go out to dinner b/c I am doing so well on my program. Going out for a meal locally does not have the bang that it used to for me. When we travel, I eat out enough so I would rather have a cooked meal or food of my choice. Dh loves to cook for me, but he uses spices that I do not like. So it has happe... Sun, 8 May 2016 09:22:10 EST Just received flowers from my DS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6158238 Good Morning; What a day so far! My DH is running errands and giving me the day to myself to watch horse racing. It was a thing I did with my grand father. As a child, I liked the attention. But as an adult, I found out that my grandfather was a scum bag. He had two families living with in blocks of each other. I found this out when my sister died a year ago. Any way I like the day alone to just enjoy something nobody in my family likes besides me. <BR> I just had a talk with my DS an... Sat, 7 May 2016 12:44:57 EST Added more water to my day and I lost weight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6157461 Good Morning; sometimes, I expect stress to stop. My life is stressful, but I do not have to take ownership of it. I have accepted stress as a partner but I need to let go sometimes daily. My DH came home with information that his manager who was wonderful was moved into another organization. DH has got a replacement who he does not like. I had to let go. <BR> there is always something. <em>243</em> I have come to realize that taking on another's stress is not an asset to my program... Fri, 6 May 2016 08:30:35 EST been to gym and heard from DS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6156866 Good Morning; DS sent a text to his dad telling him that he and his wife are doing much better. I am not sure what has all happened. He is supposed to be in counseling and so is his wife. I do not ask questions. He acknowledged that he is coming to his HB later this month. Good sign that he remembered. I am just praying that things are going much better for him. I know his Ex has been a big problem in their relationship. I hope the counseling is giving him and his wife skills to have ...

Had a long talk with DH about handling stress better at work and with his health problems with his parents. We got word that MIL is having breathing problems. She has been home for a week. This is not a surprise. She does not have a health nurse visiting her or any social services. Much of the problem is them - when she first had health issues she had a nurse coming to the house. But she told them not to come any more, she was a nurse. At the hospital, she wa... Tue, 3 May 2016 08:57:59 EST SP is sending tracking information http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6153991 I have noticed messages saying that the information from my id is going to advertisers.

She was a flower. DD made the costume for the recital. It was wonderful!! I got there early and soon as my GD saw me she waved at me. Her parents came in much later. They also left early so I went over to GD and told her how wonderful she was. SIL was very strange - he did not even say hello to me and then he left so fast. I did not know where he went. I know his daughter was wondering where her dad was. I understand my DD and ...

I slept like a baby last night. I feel so great. The miracle of sleep. <BR> Going to my GD spanish recital soon. We are watching my GD & GS this weekend b/c DD & SIL want the whole day to just do things together. Since DH has been having so much stress at work and then his parents problems, this will be a nice change where he has to get out of his head. Since I had ... Wed, 27 Apr 2016 09:55:44 EST Just got back from seeing MIL and her situation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6149819 Good Morning; DH & I walked into her long term care room and visited all day. MIL was in a wonderful mood. Why? Besides us visiting- the facilities were fabulous - staff was so pleasant, she had friends where she could socialize with people her age- they have activities. She had wonderful meals. She seems more in control of herself. She walked up and down the hall to get back more of her strength. At home FIL is a angry man who is very controlling. She even mentioned it to one of her...

She is in Physical therapy and occupational therapy and is fighting it. She feels she does not need it. Normally, MIL is very passive but not now. Both FIL & MIL on waiting list for assistant living and very unhappy about the future living there. They only have one option for keeping them together. they have been married for 70 years and MIL is so dependent on his husband. She never learned to drive. She ...

She is not allowed to go home. She has had too make attacks and her heart can not take any more. FIL is lost without her, but he is holding his own. FIL can be difficult at the best of times. <em>24</em> I am having a positive day and getting chores done.

DH is going to see what the status of his mother. We are not sure if she is still in the hospital or home yet. His family does not call and give us an update on her status.

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 07:34:55 EST I hate when my DH competes with me in weigh loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6143406 good Morning; I have called my DH a braggart b/c he goes overboard at times about how fast he can lose weight. Well today he has lost 3.8 lbs this week. I actually have plateaued due to stress. I sometimes tell him to keep his lost to himself. But today I am in a good mood, my grandkids are coming over and I do not want words. When I have time, I will mention the bragging. He just does not learn. Women do not lose the weight like men. He knows that. <BR> Oh well my grandkids are comin...

My brother is dying of cancer. I spoke with him a month ago - he could hardly speak due to chemo. I was told he probably would not be able to speak more due to where the cancer is. I expected to go and see him but my hip injury put the stop to seeing him due to the fact I am not suppose to drive long distances for quite some time. I can do short towns trip but nothing long. Since the physical therapy, I am much better but still n...
