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.
God Bless

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

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

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.

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.

What a wonderful daughter you have,Roberta to help you find your way already around where you will live! That is a big help and contributes to peace of mind too!

That is great that you are able to take advantage of the senior chair yoga and stretch exercises, Marsha,. We did that in previous years back in Michigan at our wonderful Senior Center there. hopefully we may start again one of these days.

Yes, Irene ,thanks for the kind thoughts am getting stronger every day and pray you are?too.

This afternoon I spent about an hour preparing a Forks Over Knives dish.. It turned out great.
"Lentil Shepherd's Pie "with Parsnips too. It was large so I divided it between two large pie plates and shared with DD's family next door.

Hope all sleep well and enjoy a good day tomorrow!
Hugs, Pat

Yes Pat, the senior Yoga is stretching, and not as hard as regular yoga. Yes, I collect Debbie McComber books, and found 2 that I don't have

Hope everyone is having a good day.

Getting closer to my goal to have the major de-cluttering and downsizing done. The moving company person will be here Monday and I will call my daughter and put the phone on speaker so she can participate. Wednesday, the appraiser will be here to examine anything that might need verification of their value for insurance purposes. A follow-up appointment with my primary care doc on Thursday, and at some point that week, I MUST get shoes! And ink for the printer!

My daughter just emailed Google Earth maps of important places near my new home. Google Earth is not as neat as Google Earth Pro, but I love it. I now have maps showing where my family, friends, and important offices and favorite stores are in relation to my apartment. What a blessing! I searched yesterday for maps of the greater city--called all the possible visitor offices--none available.

That sounds really fun, Marsha, getting to a yoga class! Did you find anything to read at the book store?

DD took Brooklyn , our little Shihtzu to be groomed this morning. I will be leaving shortly to pick her up. A rare outing for me. I am sure her previous owner was glad to see our little Brooklyn. Brooklyn is the 5 year old breeder dog she parted with because we had lost our beloved Poochie to sundown syndrome. Very different personalities But both very loving.

I will post this evening as to how it went.
Hugs, Pat

Good evening to all, I am shutting down and heading to bed. Been a busy day. Judy and I went to the Senior yoga class at the Y this afternoon, then stopped at the library book store.

Pat, sounds like you are on the road to recovery. I agree with your daughter waiting until Monday to cancel your appt.

Until tomorrow, have a good night's rest everyone.

Good evening team!
Hope your day went as well as mine. In fact I felt so well i called my daughter and asked her to cancel my checkup on Monday with doctor's nurse regarding my prolapse surgery.
I had been having problems with continued bleeding but that has all cleared up since making the appointment. I am walking better every day so I know I am on my way!
She wants me to wait until Monday to see if all is still well then-I agreed.

Today is our DGD's 25th BD and the family have all gone off to celebrate. They are attending a Civic theatre performance and I am sure out to dinner. DH and I are with them in spirit..
I have made up a big basket of containers and couple of appliances and adding a set of dishes for her apartment that she will be moving in to shortly.She is sleeping at our house currently.

Let me know what is going on in your life.
Hugs, Pat

Dear Ree-- So happy to hear you were able to get out and shop.
Possibly a cane or walker would help you feel more secure on your own walking.

I am hoping to get in to the grocery store soon to pick up my own produce:).
I have yet to do that but at the rate I am progressing I may try that soon too. !

Sorry you have had a setback with DH but I would suggest that you reintroduce the idea weekly . He may change his mind or may not remember not wanting to go.
Please keep trying for your sake as well as his.

Hugs, Pat

Ree, so sorry that DH has decided not to go, yes you diffinately need some time off. Do you have anyone to come in and sit with him while you get away?

Check in with us, and make time for you. It is so important, I know. I went through it, and it was the hardest job I ever had.

Hugs and prayers coming your way.

Pat, your breakfast sounds great. I love omelets. Your GGD will love all the containers you have for her. I need to get rid of some of mine. I fill them and freeze, and then Geo. Jr. and Karen come they take home several.. He sent me a text last night that they were having my chicken veggie soup.

It has been a beautiful day here. Don't really know how hot it got. After I did some things around the house I took a little nap. Woke up with a headacche, :(

I get hair done in the morning. Then to the Dollar Tree.

Hope everyone has a great evening, don't know what is on TV. Not much on that I enjoy anymore,

Hugs and prayers
Marsha

Good afternoon everbody. Hope all is well with you!
We had rain earlier this morning but sunny now. We were able to get Brooklyn out just before
The rains came. Thunder alerted us to get a move on:)

For Br. I chopped, an onion, 3 colors of 1/2 peppers, and 1/4 cup mushrooms --
And sautéid til tender, in 1/4 cup water. Then added a couple of whipped eggs for a Br. . Scramble. .just another way we get our multi servings of veggies daily!

DD came at lunch time with a beautiful assorted fruit cup plus a main dish. She does this quite often. We love having her company as well.


My main accomplishment today-i emptied out my food containers cupboard. Cleaned and Sorted 1/2 to give to DGD for when she moves in to her new appartment in couple weeks. Filled a laundry basket For her to choose from.. Including a couple of small appliances.

I set my timer for my assigned, ( by my surgery nurse ,) exercises to do every 2 hours . Getting stronger every day. Will see her Monday for another checkup.

Take care of yourself friends or you will be of no help to others!

Hugs, Pat

Just checking in before I turn off the computer. Hope everyone had a great St. Patrick's Day. I didn't have anything green to wear. I used to wear a lot of green, but lately seems I have a lot of blues and pinks.

Hope everyone has a great night's rest. Will do some more cleaning tomorrow. Have a couple more throw rugs to wash and dry.

Thurs. is get hair done day, and then to the Dollar Tree.

Hugs and prayers to all.

Happy St Pat's Day Marsha! So glad you are feeling better and glad to see you posting again.
I know how much you care for Ginger as we are dog lovers too:)
It is early morning here in Texas and little Brooklyn knows I am up ! She is starting to squeal from her cage. She thinks she has to be by my side every waking moment.
Better go rescue her.

Good evening to all. Sorry I haven't been posting, but wasn't feeling good, feel better now, been so busy, and have had a lot of company.

Had to take Ginger (my doggie) to the vet this afternoon. Thank goodness for Judy as I couldn't have done it. Ginger don't like riding in the car. She don't like going to the Vet. Got that all taken care of for another year. She had an allergy shot, and I have pills that he said she would have to take the rest of her life.

After we brought her home, I took Judy to the Village Inn(Pancake House) for supper for going with me and helping me with her. She is not a people dog. She is a Mama's doggie, especially since DH passed on. She is very protective of me.

Hope everyone has a good night's rest. Will welcome newbies and you will enjoy this group. Just jump right in.

That is a good plan, Pat. Today I am taking small steps toward my move next month. I MUST get into my closet for boxes I have not opened for decades! Made arrangements with our building manager to borrow a key to get into the locked room where my storage locker is located. I dread opening it as there were three floods since the last time I opened it! This is countdown day 31. The moving company representative will be here next Monday, and the appraiser two days after that.

Everything will work out OK. My apartment will be decluttered at the end of my countdown day next month. All is well. All is well. Thank you, God.

Hope all is well with you-Bonnie, Peggy, Mani, Nadine, Irene, Ree, Marsha, Roberta, -who am I forgetting? One thing sure-the more you post, the better my memory:)

I am proud of myself today-- i started a new-- get moving more--program for myself.
I have been too sedentary for too long so today- i set my timer for a short walk around main floor and deck-repeat every 30 minutes. Done several already today!

Also I baked another batch of Chia Seed muffins. They are delicious-i did cut back on the amount of sweetener called for and they are still good.

Let us know what you are up today.
Hugs, Pat

A very Happy Mothering Sunday, Ree! I know you will enjoy dinner at your son's , today especially.

Our day to honor mothers falls in May here in states. And it so happens I was born on "mother's day":) that may be the reason I chose to give birth so many times and help raise foster children as well:) these many children are a blessing still as they all do what they can to help with our problems as we age.

You are right about our early comedies being so loud but as I look back they were a lot better than most of the comedies offered in this country today!
Yes, they were loud and outrageous but they served to do some good too. As I look back-
I believe "I Love Lucy "and "All In The Family "and other comedies like them helped to bring about change in attitudes towards others - prejudices toward anyone different from ourselves , racial , religious, etc. Yes, we still have isolated cases but we have come a long long way:)

Hello on Sunday it's Mothering Sunday here . The original day to honour mothers , it was just a simple day then with perhaps a bunch of wild flowers given to mothers. Now it's so commercial.
We shall be eating lunch at our sons home today as we often do ,
Yes I know Doc Martin, an infuriating man in the comedy , yes a lovely settngl
Humour is a personal thing . English and American tv comedies are so different . Thr furst American ones I recall were I Love Lucy. I wondered at the tne why does everyone shout at each other , everything was so loud.
Have a good day

Good morning team! And what a great team we have .! We all have our ups and downs but bounce back . With Our FAITH! , DETERMINATION, and just plain GUTS, we can take on whatever the day brings!

We are Glad to welcome a new team member this week. AIM_2_LOSE . She will be an added inspiration to get moving daily. We welcome her with open arms.

Sorry Marsha has been under the weather but says she feels better now. Hope all is well today, Marsha! By the way, I included 3 of the super foods that you mentioned in my Black Bean Soup yesterday! Just haven't remembered to have DD get me the sunflower seeds yet. Oh she did bring Chia seeds. They are suppose to be good for us too!

So glad to hear Ree has such a nice cleaning lady who will give you little time to get away.! That is such a blessing.
Ree, DH and i are enjoying another British series , Doc Martin, filmed at one of your lovely fishing villages years ago. Port Aisaic? Called Port Wein in story. So funny.

Roberta is having her own challenges but we know Roberta! She will have her self control in no time! We have all been in her situation and understand completely! Hopefully our new member-AIM_2_LOSE can help us all in situations like yours.

It was wonderful to hear from dear Mani this past week. We are happy that you have such a wonderful family looking out for you with your health struggles! I know DH and I sure appreciate ours as well!

Irene, Even though I am thankful that I can now get out , I do have to plan my day carefully
And make all my appointments in the PM . Mornings my recent surgeries Has me staying close to the home..! I hope you feel better soon yourself!

For those folks I have missed, please give us a holler when you can. We really do need each other!

Hugs, Pat

Hey, this is Fri. The 13th! How did your day go so far?
So far- lovely day for me.
I was able to make a black bean soup from scratch ( lots of cleaning and chopping of assorted veggies) this time without the help of DH. Now that was progress:)
And-
And I Was able to get out second week in a row to get my hair done! That always makes me feel better:). Always fun to get to the beauty shop and get caught up on all the latest town news.
As Al Roker says, " Whats happening in your neck of the woods?"
Or maybe that was Willard Scott:)

Pat your team is remarkable.
Yes, I am happy. I know she is no expert but it will be something to have them washed, lotioned and toe nails cut. She has worked for me for many years now.

We are proud of you, Roberta, for exercising in any manner , form or time ! You are way ahead of most of us!

Irene---Glad to hear your cleaning lady will be doing your nails, etc , from now on. The massage alone of your feet is worth it. I am still keeping my little pot of coconut oil by my chair and remove socks and to massage my feet with it quite often!

Thinking of Marsha and hope she is feeling better now.

My cleaning lady comes tomorrow. I can not say she is poor. She comes from a hard working family --everybody works. So they are pretty well off I would say. Even her mom is a cook at one of our favorite restaurants.,and her son-waits tables there occasionally:)


DGD and friend are here. We have overnight guests now for awhile until their appt is ready for them to move in. Both are artists and have set up their studios in DD's bedrooms next door
We rarely see them except when they come for the night so no bother .

Our favorite basketball team, Baylor Lady Bears, won their Big 12 Championship for the 5th year in a row! We are so proud:) And you may remember , DH and DD have been attending the games in person and I have not missed any either, thanks to TV and a couple times radio.
They have won a remarkable 26 or maybe 27 games in a row. :)

DD just brought us some Mini cupcakes from the CUPPIECAKES restaurant that we ate at last week. I am having mine with "MRS PATMORE" tea, a gift from another daughter.

We are watching a rerun of Downton Abbey right now.

Goodnight ladies,
Hugs, Pat

I told my cleaning lady today that I couldn't wash the bottom of my feet, put lotion on them, cut my nails or go out for a pedicure. She asked about my church. I said they don't offer. One did come before but not anymore.
She said the next time I come I will do it. I said OK. You clean and when you finish you can do my feet and I will pay you extra. She is poor.

Irene, I guess that goes to show that even the smallest amount of exercise makes a difference over time. The bike sessions did not last long today--15 + 8 minutes. Weights 2 sets of 10 reps of four arm exercises--lasted about 10 minutes--that was one set more than yesterday. I've been on phone and computer most of the day searching information in connection with my move. The pedometer did not rack up many steps today.

Heading to bed early because of a lot of errands tomorrow.

Sorry to say that the scale went up this morning--still down from 03/07.
The Skeletal Muscle Percentage went up into the "Normal" range -- happy to see that.

Improvements already: The scale was down a notch to move me from "Obese" to "Overweight." Muscle mass went up.

Passed on a lot of stuff yesterday around 1:30 to our "free" area and it was all gone by 5:30.

Irene, I just found your invitation. I did not receive notice of your post, however. That is odd. Thank you for the invitation, but remember I am in my 80s--88 to be exact--89 in October. My aunt lived to be 106, so I have a way to go to enjoy healthy living.
