I am starting a new Chapter in my life--moving from my apartment after 35 years to a new State, new city, new apartment in a new complex, new everything, and I am happy and feeling blessed.

Mine are called wheat thins Pat and they are very small, That is why a serving is 18. I use them to dip into the avocado.

Irene, your snack crackers plus avocado sound great together! I will try soon.
I am looking at the box of Stone ground Wheat Crackers that we have on hand here.
4 crackers suggested serving and 120 calories. Central Market brand from HEB.
Enjoy!

Pat, the appraiser is due any moment--she was stuck in traffic this morning.

Our plans for departing are still undetermined--just depends on when the movers finish on the second day. if they finish around Noon, we will head for Pendleton to overnight. If later, we will head for Ellensburg. (sp). I have a luncheon date with a friend at 1:30.

Pat I found out that some whole wheat snack crackers with a hint of salt have 25 calories for 18 small ones which is a serving. I had quit eating them often as they had a bit of trans-fats and thought they were bad for me. I ate some last night with mashed avocado a bit of mayonnaise and sunflower kernels.
Glad you decided to do something about your weight. It is true we don't want it to creep up on us.
Good your husband is going along with you.

Thanks Irene-we will just look forward to another good year next year for our beloved Lady Bears:! I hope you , Irene, are feeling better and getting things under control.

Marsha, you may be the most active of all of us posting anyway. Keep on moving!
You may have nicer weather than the rest if us too.
We have had a colder winter than usual here in Texas. And a really rainy week promised coming up. But spring has finally arrived with blooming iris and blossoming trees in our back
yard. This is a view from our deck:)


Ree, you have your hands full and I am sure get more than enough extra walking time too!
I hope you can get help with your stability. That is something I am working on too. It is not always easy to work me time in but know i have too.

Roberta, we do need an update from you. Hope you have things under control now and are feeling less stressed!

Well DH and I noticed our weight has been gradually creeping up so started this morning to do something about it. At our age we don't need to be carrying extra weight around., thats for sure!
For breakfast we had a wonderful fruit smoothie with 7 different fruits. DH even said it was good! And he is not always easy to please:)
My Spark Nutrition tracker says it had 8 gr. Fiber, 3 gr. Protein, 1 gr,. Fat and low carb. 248 calories. Thank you Spark Nutrition Tracker!
For lunch We had a cooked carrot smoothie with added apple juice and applesauce and touch of ginger root.
And add Snacks with protein and fiber 1/4 cup each of mixed nuts-added both.
And then a regular dinner.
Wish us luck .
Hugs, Pat

Good night all!
We had a wonderful evening. My second time out since surgeries.
DD and hubby treated us to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. Italian so Dh and I shared a pasta plate and each had own salad. Dessert was a Teramisu-

I too wish we all lived closer and could get together for maybe banana bread at Marsha's house!:)

We are feeling sad tonight as our beloved Lady Bears lost their championship game to Notre Dame!! But they have had a wonderful year and we are very proud of them!

Again-good nite,
Hugs, Pat

Irene, LOl I wish we all lived closer and could sit and have a cup of tea and a piece of banana bread (which is more like cake). Got 4 in the freezer for Easter.

Hope you had a good day.

Pat, everyone enjoyed it, and some were taking a piece and putting aside before coffee hour. :LOL

Judy checked out a movie at her Library, Yes, there is a Heaven, and we watched it when she got home. It was a great movie.

Hope everyone has a good night's rest. I am tired, did some errands after we counted the money at church, came home and put everything away, and then laid on the couch and fell asleep. Hope I sleep tonight.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Just wanted to wish everyone a good, restful night. I am turning in. Made 3 more loaves of banana bread todady, will take one to church in the morning for coffee hour afterwards.

Sounds like you all are keeping busy. I don't know where the time goes. With it staying light later, I am outside more, and then have more to catch up on once I come inside.

I have to go to Deals after we count the money at church. Need a few things from there. Can really save a lot of money on things for cleaning, etc.

Hugs and prayers to everyone. Like Pat says, we have to make some "me" time. I can't stay in when it is nice outside. We are to be cooler in the morning but then the rest of the week will be in the 80's.

I've been going through paper clutter since breakfast! And of course, i must go through every sheet to determine whether it is important to keep. I'm on my third bag to take to Office Depot for shredding.

Been cleaning an electric fan, Yeeuck! It is covered with a black fuzzy dust! I've used up about almost an entire roll of paper towels! And the front part of the cage is hanging in the shower to dry. De-cluttering and downsizing has created more clutter--but I am trying to gather like stuff together to be packed together. At some point, I am going to call it quits and let the movers move whatever is left.

Thank you for your sage advice, Pat. Love, Roberta

I don't see any ME time seriously planned into either of your schedules, dear Roberta and dear Ree!

Remember to bless your self first thing in the morning and last thing at night!!

#######I find that a do it yourself--face, arms , hands, feet and ankle - body massage with ( I use Cocoanut oil but you use what you have ) both night and morning leaves me feeling luxuriously relaxed , beautiful and stress free!

As for the daily home jobs- Try FlyLady suggestions -and set your timer for 15 min. Work for 15 min. And then rest for 15 .

Forget the doomsday naysayers , Drink your water and take care of you!

Hugs, Pat

A bad night's sleep changes everything planned for the next day! I need to stay at home today and tackle laundry and paper clutter. The haircut will be scheduled later on.

Thursday and Friday of next week are Day 1 and 2 of the "5-day crazy full moon days," according to my favorite doc. He said "they" marked those five days on their office calendar to prepare for more patients, etc. I avoid making any important decisions, trips, etc., for the two days before, the full moon, and two days after. In the past when I did not check my calendar, those decisions and actions did not go well. No, Friday the 13th is just another day.

The first three days of next week are busy ones--the following five days will be dedicated to reducing paper clutter and laundry. Monday the appraiser will return at 10, and I have a lunch date with a long-time friend at 1:30. Tuesday, errands--computer glasses fixed, order a back-pair of bi-focals, go shoe shopping--it is embarrassing to wear these dirty, old casual ones for every occasion! emoticon

Hello on Saturday
Tiredness and too much going on certainly causes stress Roberta . You are a wise woman doing a good self diagnosis and remedy,
I do not sleep well and have stress in my life. This week I got the day of a meeting wrong. Having it corrected I hastily went and found it noisy and some of it unhelpful. Coming out I turned the wrong way to go home .
I scared myself thinking I can't gave memory loss I need my memory as M has very little.
I am trying to reassure myself it's tiredness not dementi, M does nap a lot so thinking I will try to rest when ge does, must listen to our bodies . Have a good weekend, Irene

Oh Roberta! I am so sorry to hear of your breakdown after being overwhelmed from pure exhaustion! Yes! You certainly do have to take your own advice! You do have to love yourself enough to take care of you first!
I pray you did or will tomorrow make that appointment to get your hair done.,
Lack of sleep can catch up with you as you well know!
You are worth it!!
Love you!

This afternoon, after watching "Call the Midwife," I suddenly started sobbing for no apparent reason. Since I live alone with no confidant to turn to, I sat down with paper and pen in hand and started writing about the cause. The answer came that I was tired, too many TO-DOs, and that I have been at this de-cluttering and downsizing for weeks!

Then, I asked what I could do to feel better, and the answer came that I should have my hair "done," go shopping for shoes (I'm down to one pair) and new clothes. Take a shower to wash away my sadness, clear off my bed and sleep in my bed tonight. Eat well and take all my supplements!

I need to take my own advice--I tell my friends to take care of themselves, too. I have not slept more than three to four hours each night, too busy and not enough energy to cook, and not taking my nutritional supplements. I have let myself "go" during the de-cluttering and downsizing.

Maybe I can get a haircut tomorrow and shop for shoes at the Mall on Sunday. I'm feeling a little lighter just thinking about the haircut!

The appraiser will be here Monday morning again to examine the two sets of China that I forgot to show her during her previous visit. Then lunch with a friend at 1:30--that will be a blessing.

OK. I'm good. Time to hit the shower and get ready for tomorrow.
Love, Roberta

Since my bed was loaded with displaced moving items, I slept on the couch last night--too frazzled to clear it off--and had a great night's sleep! My bed has a 3" thick foam pad on top of the mattress and the couch has foam cushions--the only difference is that the bed is oriented East-West and the couch North-South. Could it be possible that on the couch my body is aligned with the earth's "energy" that runs from North Pole to South Pole???? Read that some place decades ago. Anyway, I slept over ten hours last night! Awoke a few times but went right back to sleep.

Now to get busy on my day of getting rid of paper clutter and catching up on laundry! Have a great day everyone.

Hello on Friday and a big welcome to Mani. So glad to hear from you . I am ok plodding on taking one thing at a time.
As I suspected my husband did not want to go to day care again, he doesn't say much but from odd words and phrases I think he was bored there . He loves painting so is happier at home splashing paint on paper and why not.
We do go to a Memory Cafe once a month. It's a room set out like a cafe with drinks and cakes provided. There's a theme each month , it was Spring and Easter yesterday, the idea is to get patientd talking of their memories and have fun. Maurice enjoyed going there but it is for patients and carers so I go too.
Have a good weekend . Ree

Mani I am not supposed to get constipated with the powerful laxative I take to keep the ammonia levels down. Don't know what happened.
Well today it broke loose. I drank prune juice in addition to my laxative.
Thanks dear Mani. Can I go and live with your family and you? They sound so wonderful.

Hello my dear special friends.....

Thanks to all your prayers and well wishes I am feeling much better and more like my old self. So thought I'd pop in and say a HI!!!!!

Ree, I share your pain regarding M's condition, I am dealing with a similar situation at home, but I am more helpless than you are as I can't do too much for Thampi, but yes blessed that we live with our children so we have loads of help at hand.

Pat your Pie sounds wonderful....mouth watering

Irene, I know how terrible being constipated is.....gosh you are going through a lot dear girl I hope things get better and soon.

Marsha, Roberta....sending you girls loads of love.....

Well can't write too much as my tremors get in the way....

Stay blessed every one

Hugs & Prayers

Pat Can you imagine now I am constipated and my stool should be water for the ammonia to go down. Hope it gets loose tomorrow. Sorry to be so personal on here but that is just the way it is.

Hi everybody-like rhe rest of you, we are all hoping M went to the day care center and has forgotten about his refusal to go. Like the advice from the center said- just act as if he never refused and get on with going. Hopefully it worked, Ree!

Hope all is going better with you, Irene. I know the amonia flare ups must be very stressful!

How is the weather in sunny Florida, Marsha? I think you get the rain before we do here so hopefully all is well tomorrowfor you.

Roberta must be exhaused about now from all her packing but maybe relieved to have so much accomplished.

Received a lovely note from Mani yesterday! So wonderful to hear from a very sweet lady.
Glad to hear she is moving about a little more easily although slow, like the rest of us. Thank you Mani for keeping us in touch!

Today our meals were no problem as we had left overs .
so this evening I surprised DH by making a Strawberry-Mango pie. ( saw an add for one on my Swhan's site , made me hungry:) so decided to make one)I just happened to have both fruits in the freezer and also a premade pie crust waiting to be used up.
I followed a recipe
but doubled the strawberries and lessoned the nutmeg-but full T of Cinnamon. It turned out beautifully. We just had a sample but it will be better tomorrow when fully cool!

We watched a movie from Netflix and now ready to turn in.
Suppose to rain here tonight.
Hugs, Pat

REE hope M does go to the day center. He probably forgets and just goes.

So sad to hear that Alzheimer's is increasing.
At our age we have to be mindful of ways that can help us prevent it!
A few foods that are thought to help prevent Alzheimer's or Dementia are dark skinned foods such as --eggplant, red grapes, cherries, red bell peppers, oranges, and all kinds of berries! These choices all protect the brain from free radicals.

Ree, I hope that works, please keep us posted. They are building a very large facility at the end of my street for people with Dementia, and Altheimers (sp). There seems to be so many developing it now-a-days.

Will keep you in prayer.

Oh, I do love the new technology!
I hope plans for your DH to go to day care work out for you. Did he say why he did not want to go there again?

Thank you, Ree. Remember to take care of yourself, too. emoticon Roberta

Hello on Tuesday ,
Roberta good luck on your move. How wonderful to see all essential things on Googke Earth.
We are so fortunate to have this technology now, I do not get out much now so contact with others is through technology. I would be lost without it.
I do use a cane when I walk out, sometimes I use it indoors,
I spoke to the organisers of the day care centre where M goes. They advised not to mention it until the morning he attends attends , then act as if he is going, suggest he takes something to show the others. Tomorrow is the day, I have a feeling he's made up his mind not to go, we shall see. Take care Ree

Thank you for the good wishes. "Phil" from the moving company arrived on time for the walk through and tallying up the boxes needed, etc., etc. The movers will arrive on April 27 to pack up the small stuff and return on the 28th to move furniture and boxes. The appraiser lady will be here on Wednesday. We are exactly five weeks from packing up! Wheeee!

Thanks Marsha and Irene!

We had a gorgeous day here today, in central Texas, after a few days of chilly rain. Suppose to get up to 82 degrees tomorrow. We may be able to finally eat on the deck again!

I got a few things accomplished today. Computer man came and showed me how to reboot my
Computer when need be.,he wrote down all new instructions thankfully:)

I baked a new batch of Chia muffins, this time using crushed pineapple in place of applesauce.
Everyone liked it better than original recipe so guess its a keeper. Will again share with our family next door.

DH came home from working on the apartment they are fixing up for DGD. It is coming right along. He said today he was working on cupboards. DGD even set up her bed today . I am looking forward to seeing the apartment when finished.

We all know Roberta had a busy day today as the moving van was suppose to arrive. Hope all went well. We wish her well as she moves closer to her daughter..

Let us know what you are up to in your neck of the woods:)
Hugs, Pat

Good morning to all. It is a wet Monday here in the Sunshine State. We can use the rain, and I won't have to put water in the pool.

Pat, have a great day, and Irene I would call my doctor and let him know what is going on.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Pat, I was off balance this morning and sleeping too much which are signs my ammonia levels are up when they need to go down.
