Well if I had been bright enough to spell it correctly I would not have got in trouble :). I left the letter -H - off of shih in spelling of Shih-TZU :):)

Thank you Roberta for your prayers. We know they work from past experiences .

Hi ladies, I tried to send you a message but my message was called "using profanity"' for mentioning the breed name of our little dog..
Hope this goes through:)

Pat, I love my Dollar Tree. I get all of my paper goods, cleaning articles there. They even have a frozen food section now, milk, eggs, etc.....I go after my hair appt as it is right near there. Greeting cards are 2 for 1.00. all gift wrapping things, nothing over a $1.00.

Have a good day. Chilly here in sunny Florida.

Thank you ladies! I will be fine. Just will be mighty glad to get it is over and done!

Cleaning lady is here and again she is telling me about the HUGE savings she gets by shopping at the "99 cent store" in WACO. It sounds amazing . Has everything like a Walmart, etc only 99cents. Even ailes of fresh produce! I am looking forward to checking it out, for sure.
So if it is a chain , which I think it may be, you might want to check it out too if you can find one near you.

I truly appreciate your prayers for my surgery! Thank you!!

Hugs, Pat

The guy they sent home? I think his name is Woody. The dark haired bigger guy. He was some kind of athlete.
He has done fantastic.
I hope. I don't miss the finale. ( day after my surgery and still in hospital no doubt. )

The same can be said for you, Irene! You keep me going!!

WooHoo! Roberta is off and running , like usual, actually!
I love it when I get an extra motivation to clean everything in site! You go girl!

I miss Ree already. Hope she pops in occasionally . Actually IT's something she should be doing for herself.

Marsha that was clever of you to use a rolled towel for your foot elevations. That maybe all you need.

I did a few house chores myself this morning. Got washing caught up and am folding clothes.
Actually DD and DH do the harder stuff while I am slowed down so much with this condition.
DD prepares meals and the dishes and then back to work on her computer.
DH is emptying the fridge to clean. ( DD mentioned there were some things that needed tossing) As for me-only 5 days now til my surgery .

We watched the Biggest Loser too. Who do you think will win?
After that we watched Doc Martin through NETFLIX from my I-Pad to TV screen. Still got to bed by 10:00 or so.,

Talk about motivation!!! Notice arrived this morning that our building has an interested buyer and management will be inspecting the building, including all units, next Monday and Tuesday!!! YIKES!!! I forgot all about breakfast! Luckily I was dressed to my shoes and ready to take on whatever. Took three cart loads of stuff to the recycle bin, went to my eye doc to pick up glasses--came home with computer glasses and left the bi-focals to be re-done. Next took four bags of donations to the Senior Center. Then hit COSTCO for gas to be advised my membership had lapsed! Filled the tank and headed for the store where I could add my membership fee to my groceries. Then to Fred Meyer for supplies and groceries! So far my FitBit One has racked up 8123 steps and it is only late afternoon. There is still one cart load of groceries remaining in the car. Maybe after some sustenance I will revive enough to get the rest. WHEW!!!
emoticon Roberta

Add to that the last cart full of groceries from the car, and three loads of laundry!

Thanks Pat. I tried a rolled up heavy towel last night and worked pretty good. The next time I am in Walmart I will ask.

Hope everyone has a good evening, I will be watching The Biggest Loser.

As we touch we leave our identity.

Oh please where ever I go today,
Help me leave heartprints! ♥ ♥ ♥

Of understanding and love.

I wrote another blog today. Here is the answer to some of the questions they asked.

Did you read my blogs about my computer, etc?

Some said I should use Firefox but they say I have it as I used to use it but when I try to log on I can't.
Some people can really hit my veins good with no trouble. They are going to send the lab to my house. They are experts.
This nurse told me to drink all the water I wanted, others told me to just drink a sip of water.

I am so weary but every time I lie down I have to get up and go to the bathroom. Have gone 5 times today.

Hi ladies-just want to pop in before the Presidents State Of The Union address.
I see it will be on CNN. The senators and Joe Biden have arrived in the chambers.

Also---I hope everyone is enjoying the Downton Abbey series like I am. I have a hard time understanding the words when watching it on TV but hear everything clearly with my ear buds on my I-Pad. They are up to the year 1924 now-the year my DH was born. :)Such fun following all the lives of both upstairs and down stairs folks! Please Let me know what you think.
Hugs, Pat

Ps-so glad Marsha has her computer back.
Also regarding your painful legs at night that go with kidney disease- my DH has the same condition apparently that you have -a DD picked up a "leg lifter" for him for while he is sleeping or in his easy chair. It is very light weight, cloth covered , about a foot high and couple feet wide and slanted . He is using it right now. Keeps his feet elevated. Works for him. I think she found it at Walmart .

Ree, so sorry to read about your DH. I understand as I was a caregiver to mine for quite awhile and you only can spread yourself so thin. Do accept any help you have offered to you. In the end when Hospice was called in, it was a big help to me. You will be in my daily prayers. Please take care of you. I know I aged a lot being a caregiver, but wouldn't have had it any other way. I know he would have done the same. Hugs and prayers.

Good evening, got my computer back, and it wasn't anything too serious so that is good. I am not going to be on long, had a busy day. Geo. Jr. was here and he mowed, and swept leaves around the pool, we had a good visit. I didn't go out today, tomorrow Judy and I are going to a covered dish at the Y on planning for the New Year. at 12:00. She has to go to work so we will drive seperately and I have to get some Leg Cramp pills. Last night I could have screamed when woke up and had them. All I can do is get up and massage the area, and walk and walk and walk. They say it is a condtion when you have Kidney Disease. Mine is stage 3, and has been for several testings.

Thurs. have our Ladies Circle meeting, and then get hair done. I changed my day of getting hair done from Tues to Thurs. Geo. Jr. can usually come on a Tues, or Fri if not out of town. She is good about changing me and I appreciate it.

I hope that everyone had a good day, and have a good night's rest. I slept good last night until the leg cramps hit. Funny thing this morning on one of the shows it talked about them, and said that when you lay down your blood builds up in the veins, and causes them. also a side affect of Kidney Disease. (which I already knew).

Hugs and prayers to all.

Did you know? Hedonism has always had a bad reputation. This is a more positive view:

Ethical hedonism is the idea that all people have the right to do everything in their power to achieve the greatest amount of pleasure possible to them, assuming that their actions do not infringe on the equal rights of others.

Enjoy your day. Love, Roberta

No one to help with that Pat. I did have friends do my shopping today and I enjoyed my lunch.

So happy to have my bathroom in order!
I will be able to find items I am looking for quickly now.

And my laundry shelf above the washer and dryer got the same treatment .
Things in order-create efficiency and less stress-!

You are right Irene, even if we lived closer and I was able to help, only you can decide what to toss and what to keep!
One idea-If you have a friend willing to help you might have them bring one drawer at a time and a wastebasket to you.



Choose wisely what we do with our bodies in the way of food choices and activity and we can be rewarded with good health
Thank God for our blessings!

emoticon Pat when you finish you can come down here. Of course you wouldn't know what to do with my stuff. I don't know what to do with most of it myself. I throw a paper away and find out I needed it.

My activities yesterday---I sorted and folded and put back neatly-towels and dish cloth drawer in kitchen

My activities today----I have 2 bath vanity drawers emptied and am sorting and tossing all the contents.

The drawers are washed and dried and I am now putting Back beauty surplus into one drawer and medical supplies in the other.

My shower had accumulated several 1/2 empty Bottles too. So now has only
One opened shampoo bottle and one opened conditioner bottle plus one body wash.

The rest will be stored until needed.

My sinks are all shiny daily-thanks to the suggestions on my FlyLady site:)

The more clutter free--the less stress for me:)!

It was not on my vision board, but on my reminders on my computer calendar, and I saw it several times a day: "Get off ______!" (blood pressure med). As of three days ago, I'm off ______! BP was so low I was feeling wobbly. So far BP is healthy. Wheee!!!

Pat. I am so glad the family are rallying round to help. They all lead busy lives now so I for one don't like to request help often. But they would do it if asked, I can be too independent at times,
Re Downton, a it's around 1930 now in era but the spoof once had George Cloony join for one episode as an American visitor to the house. He was great and looked as if he was enjoying it all.
Have a good week. Ree

Yes, everything is going up. They want to get my big cola on my social security which amounted to the big sum of $10.00 You are right Ten dollars.

Thank you Pat for the congrats on my ammonia levels.
I'm always so happy when the cleaning lady comes.

I have not heard if he was caught. He made threats against all the schools in the District, so all schools were closed before the buses with children arrived, and the children were taken to the District headquarters to wait for their parents to pick them up. Then the next day police swarmed all the schools in the District, and the children were back to class. No more news so far.

Thanks for caring. Love, Roberta

Roberta. Did they ever catch the roaming guy with the rife?
Did the kids get back to school?
Hope you are ok health wise

REE-- so glad to hear you have all kinds of on-line -caregiver help .
Hope you are still getting some sleep.

Yes the cost of frames and glasses is outrageous these days! Actually the cost of everything is outrageous these days:)

And---That is so funny what they have written in to the script about the Downton ladies
Swooning over Geo. Clooney!:) they must really be moving ahead in time too!
Can't wait to see that :)

Irene-I am so happy your ammonia levels are improving!
keep up the good work.! Like the song says----You must be doing something right!

Around here-This morning our now -weekly - cleaning lady came so we are squeaky clean again.
We listened on the radio to our Lady Bears win their basketball game against West Virginia. Wasn't easy but they finally prevailed.!
DD from next door just brought over our dinner of homemade soup and fresh rolls.
Like an old uncle used to say- "rich folks don't have it any better than this"!!

Marsha, I know you are blessed as we are with caring family. Close by and attentive! Hope you got your car by now!

Hugs, Pat

Oh thank you for your prayers and thoughts for me. I am in groups of caregivers on face book and one on Sparks , we learn from each other .
Yesterday I had an eye test which shows I have cataracts forming on both eye but the right one is more advanced, I had suspected that, it's not ready for removal yet. I needed new spectacles too. How costly it is for plastic and metal frames . They will be about 3 weeks in the making process.
Oh yes I am a big Downton fan and the new series got off to a great start. There was a spoof episode on over christmas with George Clooney causing heart flutters amongst the family ! Well worth seeing if you can. Tv is such an asset now My husband does little else now only watch TV, . Have a good weeknd . Ree
