My DH is not a patient person. On top of this, he is trying to manage his diet. He has been doing good, but when we go up to see his folks, it is very hard to eat well. I have managed it but he has never done well. Too much emotion, he goes to food. This time he is determined to eat well but his way is not balanced. He is eating fruit but no protein. He called this morning and he got anxious just telling me wh...

She was having morning sickness. We had a wonderful relaxing conversation and meal. My DIL is having severe stress from her mother. Her mother says she had a very easy pregnancy and does not understand why she is not having one. Her mother is very interfering and not very compassionate. My DIL stress is being transferred to my DS bc she takes her anger at her mother on him. She does not know how to put boundaries on her mo...

I have not had anything to eat yet- saving it for the turkey at school. I am not going to have all the trimmings. DD thanked me for doing this for the kids. DD and SIL can't get away from their jobs.

Are you mad at me? I have not gotten a letter from you. I want to hear about your trip. <BR> <BR> DH says to ignore her- she is getting more senile. She said that she has neighbors that she visits with and goes to meetings at the assistant living home. <BR> <BR> I told DH that I will get a letter to her some time before Christmas.

I was not sure if I would like the movie, but I enjoyed it. Now I am just relaxing. DH is not relaxed today. I have to be patient and just go with the flow. We remembered to change our clocks backward. It has been raining all day. I did not sleep well. But I am just trying to get some stuff done. Babysat our grand kids yesterday. It was really a good time. I did a craft with my GD- We decorated a Christmas Tree for her room. I had the orn...

Any time at our choice, she has company here. Her DH and her want to spend time with them. DH and I discussed it. I have learned that DH has to be ok with the decision. He had been ornery at times when our grand kids come. I asked him what time would it be possible - we gave DD a time - start and finish. We told her that we have a list of stuff we need to get done. My biggest problem was DH would not say what he wanted and then h...

I had a neighbor who has been a friend for two decades- ask me if I would still remain a friend if I knew how a person voted? I already knew how she voted without her telling me and it was not who I voted for. I told her I chose not to look at people as how they voted. I have also chosen not to discuss politics with her. I know I could n... Thu, 3 Nov 2016 08:53:04 EST nice relaxing day after a wonderful Halloween http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6260432 Good afternoon; My GS and GD were wonderful and very enthusiastic about the evening. My GS would say Halloween when his sister would say Happy Halloween. He would be right with his sister going to the doors. They gathered a full bucket of treats. They were talking non-stop about the night. My GS who is two was so excited. We trick or treated for one hour. Both kids were more into it this year than last.

It is not good to hear such negative comments from people wanting to be president. It is not good to hear name calling at all. I grew up with parents who did not have much vocabulary when they fought and just called all sorts of names to each other. I told my DH that he has the right to watch it, but I will no longer watch the coverage. I want to live in a positive environment. This election is not one anyone should be ... Mon, 31 Oct 2016 07:19:01 EST I am learning even at this time of my life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6258739 Good Morning; I have learned: that when my DS is having problems with his wife. I stop and listen but do not act immediately. But when I choose to act, I do it on my terms. DS was invited to come home to rest, but I told him that I will help him get a good counselor in town. He decided to think about this. He in turn called his FIL to come over and talk to his daughter, his wife. She gets wound up and just go on and on. He calls me back that he is not coming. I knew this would happen ...

I hate when they change his meds. He was gaining weight so they thought Zoloft was a good change for PTSD and panic attacks. Every change of medication for him has not been good. He has a brain chemistry that does not do well. His wife is not very compassionate at this point. I have been with him when a change of medication is going on. You have to be very calm and patient. She screams at him. I told him to come down and ... Fri, 28 Oct 2016 12:32:35 EST worked out hard today - have lots of energy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6257978 Good afternoon; Signed a petition to shorten the election cycle. this one has gone on too long. <BR> hopefully it will be over soon and everyone will remain calm. I am really organizing my home again. I had stopped earlier this year, but it is time to get going again. I have not heard from DS and how things are going for his relationship. I am letting them work things out themselves. Hopefully!! I am working on me and my relationship with DH. We are going to see my grandkids in a fall... Thu, 27 Oct 2016 14:53:53 EST just got a text from my DIL - DS's wife http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6256872 Good Morning; I am in a great place. I went to the gym and had a fabulous workout. DIL has a lot of baggage from childhood where my DS has baggage from war. They are having problems and they need counseling. They come to me and they go another 2 weeks and then a blowup. What I have gathered that my DIL is spoiled and runs home to mother when she does not like what is going on. I am ignoring the situation. On top of this his psychiatrist is changing his medication. This is happening ... Tue, 25 Oct 2016 11:01:33 EST voting today for early voting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6256269 Good Morning; Had a wonderful time with grandkids this weekend. My grand son is at the age where he is so much fun. My Grand daughter is like a mother to him. Just like her mother was with her brother, my son. My DD and SIL were very happy they had a good weekend without kids. My daughter has lost 35 lbs this year and is looking very good. She has got me encouraged to really work on losing the rest of my weight. I have been playing with this for so long and has not really taken it to ... Mon, 24 Oct 2016 09:07:50 EST what a morning! Grandkids here for a sleep over http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6255749 Good Morning; GD & GS here all weekend. We are having a grand time. Boy do they keep you busy. My GS who just turned two a month ago is talking sentences and complicated words. He was playing with a toy of my son- he says astronaut, Nana. Before vacation, he was not talking much but two month later and he is really using his words. GD who is 4 1/2 is the great communicator who asks questions if she does not understand a word we use. She learned the word junk yesterday. Parents are at...

I do not think my body was ready for it. I decided to take care of myself. DH was having some issues. Not sure what they were even now, he got really fussy. I came back from the gym just worn out. I knew I did not have the energy to handle DH with the lack of energy I was experiencing. I decided to take a nap and just try to get my energy back. This nap was about 4 hours long. I woke up and still felt worn out. I had a couple hours... Mon, 17 Oct 2016 12:29:07 EST received a package from in-laws with a guilt ridden note http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6251860 Good Morning; DH & I are doing quite well. But DH received a note with a package of old Christmas ornaments that his mother wanted us to have. The note told of us of the hard ordeal that they are having clearing the house of 70 years. DH is the only sibling who is still working full time and we are over 1200 miles away from them. We have no vacation left and DH feels guilty. I have no intention going up there to clean out that old house. I was the in-law who was not always treated well... Sat, 15 Oct 2016 09:36:03 EST I am over jet lag http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6251352 Good Morning, it is amazing how good you feel when you finally get over jet lag. I am most proud of how I handled this jet lag. Normally, I get so frustrated with the lack of a good sleeping schedule that I overeat out of frustration. I did not do this at all. In fact, I have been very strong on my food plan and just went with whatever my body is telling me. I went and had a massage yesterday and got all the knots out of my back from the trip. <em>224</em> My vitals are back to normal ...

Took my BP - WOW it was so high. It has to be this crazy sleeping pattern. It is not food. I am getting sleep but not all at once. I really thought my body could handle it. But I am going to try to take supplements that I take when I am not sleeping. My BP upset me but I am going to work on meditation now.

I have lost more weight. I think because I am watching what I am eating but I am active more. I will sleep 4 hours get up and then take another 4 hours after I get tired. I know this is effective b/c I am not working full time outside my home. I get jet lag every time I cross major time zones on long trips. This is the first time- I just have relaxed and let my body do its thing. I am not ...

Grand kids missed us so much. Grandson had a temperature. He saw us and really perked up. I was supposed to babysit him today if he did not go to daycare.But he woke up with no fever and was great this morning. Kids get over things so fast. I really did not want to get sick from him, but daughter was in a bind. DH went back to work. They had a major re-org when he was gone and they actually moved his office to another bui...

My hair thinning is due to Thyroid and all the stress that has been in my past. I am slowing getting rid of stress. Right now my biggest stressor is DH. We had a huge talk yesterday. He did not like what I said, but I have seen behavior change. The first one is that he is drinking less, eating better and less depressed. I am always surprised that he can not see th...

DH HB is coming up. We had agreed no more gifts to each other. But when his HB comes around- I am now getting "I want a GC for my birthday to half way books." He has so many books. He is the type of person who collects but does not read them. He says he will read them when he retires. I doubt he will do it then. He likes the newspaper and magazines but nothing bigger. I really do not care, but why keep buying books. Any ways I d...

We are not always sure the results of these decisions. It has been mixed over the years b/c sometimes things are not all as it seems. DH is aware of this. He says he can handle it.
