Lazy day yesterday....my motto--why do today what I can put off till tomorrow...I actually took a nap or rather fell asleep in the chair...even for a few minutes, it felt good...mil sees her new family doctor today...right now I think her main problem is low blood pressure...think her meds need adjusted....she got dizzy yesterday and "slid" to the floor...I say slid because I was there to catch her...I took her b/p this morning and it is back up....I think dh has taken the hint and is helping more with his mom..dh fixed her breakfast this morning emoticon

I'll check back later & tell you how the appt. went

My stress level s beginning to rise...mil got sick during the night...starting to show same symptoms-sick at stomach---then when I went to town, was almost home, dh calls and says she was complaining of her shoulder hurting really bad...got home and she said she wasn't going to the dr or back to the hospital..dh and I decided to call EMS anyway because we were scared it was her heart...EMS evaluated her and miraclatiously her shoulder stopped hurting...blood pressure was pretty low...she refused to go to the hospital...since her family dr. is leaving town and in the middle of getting her a new dr.--and new dr. will see her Fri. in the meantime I will keep an eye on her b/p....just now shoulder is hurting again and she got "lost" going to her bedroom.

Back later, Margie

Good morning ladies. Exercised yesterday at the Fitness class. emoticon emoticon emoticon Today will go get some groceries.

Kirby, Also am cleaning my bathroom (have 3) that I use the most, countertop, mirror,etc. BIG Job to get it sparkling clean. So, I do a little each day in there. Corners of the floor need extra scrubbing too.
Hot here yesterday, 87, so had to put the air on. Same temps expected all week. Our pool over in our area here (for the condo's) should be ready in few days to use. Going to look again today and see if it is filled yet and ready. emoticon
Nas,
Did you notice they also have recipes on Spark recipes for Beet cakes. I was surprised to see this. Sounds easy and good. Just wanted to mention this in case your son can get your ingredients.
Sharon,
So glad you are feeling better. Bet your house is looking pretty with all the work being done now. (-:
Margie,
Glad your mil is doing better and you can catch up on your projects outdoors now too.
Andrea,
So glad your dh is going well and had a good report. Hoping the therapy will go well too and he will heal quickly. Do take care of you too. I know it is a difficult time being a caretaker.
Merri,
Hope to see you soon. I know the new computer takes time to learn how to set it all up.
Frances, Have not seen you for awhile. I know you are busy with the grandkids and Summer is a
very busy time. Come back soon and let us know how you are.
Well, I better get to the store and finish up my project. My puzzle is almost done and can finish it later.
See you later today. hugs, Irish Ei emoticon

I did get some cleaning done yesterday and hope to do more today. I am feeling better than I have in a long time. I think the removal of the carpet is starting to show its benefits. I will know more when the paint and all the after effects of the sheet rock dust wear off. It is lovely weather here and really need to get some outdoor time. Maybe this weekend. Andrea. glad the husband is doing better. Hope everyone has a great day today.

Hi there, We got home about 7:30 last night.
Les got his stitches and his staples out. We have to go back again in 3 weeks. UGH!
The Dr. did say the x-ray looks good, and his infection is looking fine, as well..he doesn't need anymore antibiotics. That is a good sign.
In 3 weeks, the Dr. will see if he is ready for some kind of physio therapy. emoticon
I'm back to Sq.1, with looking after things etc.
I'll read the thread later.
I have to get DH fed, and his daughter is on her way over, to bring the dog, back.
It is raining and muggy here, so no yard work, today emoticon I really need to weed. emoticon Andrea

I've travelled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Walls are painted and now it is just the floor. It looks so clean with the walls done. I did get a little work done yesterday and hope to do more today. Hoping the floor will be done by this weekend. Warm and sunny today. I love beets but have not tried them in a cake. I think I would love it. Have a good day everyone.

Thinking of those today, who served in the military and lost their lives for us. I know many families are at church and the cemetery. God bless the families who lost loved ones. emoticon

Never heard of beet cake. I do love Zucchini bread and Zucchini cookies too. They are so moist and delicious. Right now, though, I am trying to cut out sweets and white flour pastas and breads....
as much as possible. Am not cooking today since I do have leftovers from Saturday and Sunday. So that will be nice to just goof off. Will sort paper work for bill paying tomorrow.
Plan on a walk with dvd Leslie Samson, since rain is expected...... emoticon emoticon emoticon
Enjoy the day all. See you later. hugs, Ei

No, never did Beet Cake that way. I have however done Sauerkraut Cake with Chocolate in it and you can not really tell if there is Sauerkraut in it. I would imagine, Beet Cake would be about the same? I would try that.

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day!!

Freaky weather...2 nights ago was 38, last night 46, tonight at midnight is suppose to be 79 degrees!!!

mil went to bed early so I went out and transplanted some flowers, came in and took a Benadryl...this afternoon I was at 2 cemeteries where the grass was just cut...hoping I don't get a headache

Does anyone like carrots...got a recipe for a carrot snack....I keep ready to eat baby carrots so that is what I used, I sliced them long ways....put 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teas. of cumin and 1/4 teas. of cinnamon and salt & pepper, in a bowl and coat carrots...place on cookie sheet and bake----I use enough carrots to spread out on a 9 x13 cookie sheet, bake for 20-22 minutes....NOTE- I put mine on parchment paper..

You know I am always searching and trying new recipes...has anyone ever used beets in a cake...found scratch cake using beets and chocolate??????? gotta think on that one!!! emoticon

Talk tomorrow, Margie

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

Kirby,
I understand about missing your kids. I miss mine too if I do not see them. My son being out of state is really missed, since I am lucky to see him few times a year. My grandkids are growing up so fast and I feel they are my joy and I am so blessed.
Nas, I knew you meant me and thanks. I really did have such a WONDERFUL day with family the whole day and felt so lucky. Hope you day is great too today and glad you are feeling much better.
My good friend, Charlotte (since we were 15) just called and will come over after church. She lives on the other side of town and so we do not see each other often either, So we will visit and go get a bite to eat for lunch. That will be so nice too. FRIENDS are like angels and so important as I get older I really do appreciate them more and more. emoticon I appreciate all of you so much too. (-: (-:
Have a nice day everyone. Will see you all later. hugs, Ei emoticon

It is strange how quickly I got use to having my kids and when they are gone miss them something awful. Guess that means I am a doting grandmother ,
Vicki called last night and is having fun so that is great said she would be back in the morning and wanted to start walking with me again and that is good we both need to get out and do some serious walking plus diet more careful
Need to run

Good morning everyone. Kirby, Looks like your kids are away and having fun at a amusement park.
Hope they are having a exciting time together.
Went yesterday to my grandson's soccer game and they won. YEAH!!!! Weather turned warmer and sunny and so was fun to watch and see them win. Ended up staying for games and lunch and had a nice time at Colleen's.
Then, my sister asked me over and I ended up there the rest of the day visiting, talking, laughing and having a great time. Had not been there in awhile since I was so busy. Have missed her and really had a great time. My niece was happy I came too and we had dinner, wow, TWO meals out and I did not cook. Fabulous FUN time!
Today going to church and will see what else happens. May see some friends later on and walk.
hugs, Ei emoticon

Computer problems, I think it is either the cord charger or battery, I am so tired of this happening.

I got my tires, and had to wait about 2 hours or so as they were really busy, today!!

So sorry to hear of your uncle Frank's passing, Kirby. Like you say, he is in a better place now, free from suffering.
Margie, I am also exhausted, but unlike you, I do get some sleep. I really do hope that you can at least sleep, in the near future. DH gets me up, once to get him, in to bed. He does stay up, longer than I do..especially now.
Just want to let you gals, know, we are on our way to Toronto, for DH's check up. I pray for the best, as far as healing goes. DH is getting bored in the chair, and also getting weaker from sitting in the chair. I hope that he can start some kind of physio.
We are driving emoticon DH's son Tanner is taking us, and DH's ex-wife is caring for Emmy, while we are away. emoticon
I've still got my dishes to dry, have been packing a few things. emoticon not that many, lol.
I'll let you know, how things are, hopefully by Tuesday. Have a great weekend. emoticon Andrea
emoticon Eileen, Linda and I will be able to visit back and forth. She has left most of her family, here..2 DD's, 3DGS's, and her DB and DS. We'll also go there; it is 5.5 hours from here, by car. She has one DD and DSIL, where she's going. ox

Kirby,
So sorry for the loss of your uncle. I will keep all of your family in my prayers. I know it has to be a difficult time for everyone. emoticon
Margie, Hope you can get some needed rest. It is so difficult taking care of someone, when it is constant care. I am sure you are exhausted.
Andrea, I know you will miss your good friend Linda. Difficult when a good close friend moves away.
I hope you can get together sometime soon after she gets settled in her new place.
Walked and tracked meals today. Made dinner in my crockpot for tonight, chicken recipe that is easy and delicious. Will cut up cucumbers and peppers for a small salad with it.
Nas, Hope you are doing well today . Do take care all. Stop back later.
Had my manicure today and it was such a wonderful treat. She did a wonderful job.
emoticon
hugs, Ei

Franke died about 6am and the service will be this afternoon or that was the plan he has no living relatives and Ruth is not able to do any thing so her daughter has taken care of every thing.
On to other things just finished making apple tarts. My family likes the things and they are easy to make . I got 2 more cukes out of the garden plus more squash so on to other things .
Not sure what I am doing the rest of the day a good bit of nothing I guess

Rest is not in my immediate future...the past 4 nights, 2 in the hospital and 2 at home, mil went to the bathroom from every 1 -2 hours at night, heaven forbid that she would let the nurse help as long as I was there--so I slept in the chair and "if" I went to sleep she hollered when she had to go!!! She has slowed down--last night only got up 3 times. But, on a happy note she has lost 18# of fluid, maybe about 5 to go---maybe I can sleep, then. emoticon I'm afraid to "not" be in her room at night, until she gets her strength back.

Check back tomorrow, Margie

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

Just checking in, Kirby, I hope your uncle goes peacefully. It is definitely hard to lose someone you love and care about.
I hope your MIL gets better, Margie, and that you do get some rest.
I'm all teary today emoticon My best friend, Linda came to say goodbye, this morning. emoticon She and her DH are moving to Manitoulin Island. They will be back for visits. she still has family here, but I couldn't stop crying..she won't be living near me, anymore. Sad.
Then my niece posted a picture of my previous DH., on FaceBook. It was taken in the hospital, with his 2 sisters, when he was dying, so of course that didn't make my day, any better.
It is sunny, but very cool, here. I am tired right out, from looking after DH. emoticon I hope that he can start to put some weight on his foot, and begin physio, after we get back from Toronto. The better he gets along, the better it will be for him, and myself. emoticon
We expect good weather on the weekend, so if it is good here, it will most likely be better, down south. emoticon
I may go shopping with my Mom, tomorrow and hope to get Emmy out for a walk, at some point, after that.
Have a great evening, Take care, all. emoticon Andrea

So sorry to hear of your uncle being so ill. It is hard to lose those we love I know. Will keep him in
my prayers.
Off to Fitness after 50 class today and looking forward to it. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Have a Pedicure appointment later today before dinner. My girls got me GC's for this and the other one got me a Manicure GC and shampoo for colored hair, which is a treat to keep in the color.
So tomorrow I am getting the manicure. Two nice treats for Mother's day. My son gave me money which is wonderful too. Have a nice day all. See you later on.

I have an aunt and uncle living in Kans, he is not expected to live through the night but he is a good person and he is 96 so I am not surprised they both live in a retirement place and she is my Mom's last living sister and is 91 they both have lived good long lives. Ruth will be 92 the 4th of July. Love them both dearly.
Sad note to end the day but that is what is happening in my life tonight ,
Charging my kindle and crashing and will sleep well see you tomorrow

Andrea, yes, my knee definitely feels better when I have been on it for some time and moving it and so on, but, it is when I sit down for any length of time, get back up, or on a drive and get out of car, that's when it hurts, it is arthritis, I was told by Doc. I do take tylenol and will take some this a.m.

Also, yes, I know how that is, Just a day or two b4 my hubby passed, I had to Hold the urinal for him to use, he was dying, though,, even though, I didn't actually realize it as he had said. He thanked me even then for doing all those things for him as well,

Will be on a trip about 45 minutes long to take dd and gkds to a dentist appointment this morning, will be gone most all of the day.

I do work the next two days.
