Melissa you have been very busy will all that is going on in your family so we do understand that you can't always be here. That is not being selfish wanting to spend all your time with your family and with your father too. Family is the most important thing next to Jesus. So spend all the time that you need and want with them.

Thank you Dorothy! I guess they thought it was not flattering, but I liked it anyway.
How is everyone here? I'm sorry I've been away so long again. I just don't get time for SparkPeople anymore. I keep getting good word of mouth referrals from current piano clients so I have a long waiting list and am trying to find more hours to take on more students. I have 31 students now and may have close to 40 in the fall. I'm already teaching some home-school students during the day on one day a week but may have to add another day for that.

My dad just got out of rehab and went home yesterday. He was in the hospital for a month and then rehab for 3 weeks getting strong enough to walk with a walker. Not sure when he will restart chemo. He and my mom have both had a tough year so far.

I'm doing okay but I think I have a stomach ulcer. No more acidic food for me until I get that under control. I see my dr. next week so hopefully I can get back on track. I'm sure it's all the stress I've had this year. It has been really hard to go back and forth to help my parents, and try to pick up the pieces at home and keep things going for my family. My DH has been understanding but only to a point. I felt I needed to stay longer in FL while my dad was in the hospital, but my DH insisted that I come home so we could go on vacation and drive to Buffalo to see his family. I went, but I have to say I regretted it. I've just dealt with way too much stress for way too long. My dad does not have much time left because of the cancer and he has to be my priority right now. I'm sure that's selfish on my part, but probably normal.

I have to go and finish my curriculum writing. Then I have to finish getting ready for a piano composing camp next week! Never a dull moment here!
Take care all!

Happy Mother's Day everyone!
Enjoying a relaxing day today after a very busy day yesterday.
My piano recital was in the morning and my daughter's ballet recital was in the evening. My son had a soccer game in the morning that I had to miss.
Everything went well...we are all just tired and my daughter is still fighting mono.

This was before I left for the concert hall and recital yesterday...my kids did not like my dress, but oh well. Sorry it is sideways...won't let me turn it.
Have a great week everyone!
Melissa

Dorothy, I'm sorry to hear that you've been feeling poorly. The difficulties with the cable company must be pretty trying as well.
I'm seeing signs of the mylar rash, and exercise is hurting my joints, but I'm still having fun with it. I started jogging again, and can now go two miles. My house and gardens are a mess though. emoticon
My daughter has spring break this upcoming week so I will be trying to keep her entertained. We can't afford to go to town for extra curricular activities, but she has a cold anyway. We'll probably be reading and watching alot of movies!
Feel better!

Breezy I think that we are having flares that are making our brains not work right.

Found out yesterday that my son cut through my neighbors cable that was in the backyard. Now I have to get all the companies to mark where they have lines out back. Did not think that I would have to worry about the neighbors stuff too. Was also told the last time that I got it marked that there was only lines on the side in front except for the cable and that was on the side. Now I have to wait until they get it all marked. Well I just do some other things that need to be done.

I'm totally exhausted, cold, and achy. I spent most of today in bed. I think I'm in a flare up, these symptoms are not new, it's been going on. I'm worried about my group buddies too. No one else is posting. I hope everything is okay....

Thanks Breezy...I so appreciate the kind thoughts.
I'm so glad you had a good week last week. How is this week going for you?

I'm doing ok, but I'm in a flare. I haven't been feeling great for awhile, but I didn't realize it was a flare until I started getting lots of nose and mouth ulcers this week. I'm a writer this week too so I can't get extra rest because I have to use every spare minute for writing.

I've had a very up and down week with piano lessons and I'm trying not to let stuff get to me. My daughter is going camping at a Girl Scout camp this weekend with her troop...they are going to have a blast! Even if it rains, they will still have plenty to do.
Time for me to get back to writing...a long way to go!

How is everyone else doing?

Melissa, I feel so bad for how rough things have been for you. My thoughts are with you and your family. I dearly hope your parents recover. It sounds like the kids are having a hard time too. I don't know how you can cope with so much. Kudos! emoticon
I'm fine. I got some good news that my insurance will cover the genetic testing my Doctor has ordered. It's pretty expensive. I went to town today and had a great visit with my son. My daughters' school has been celebrating Dr. Seuss all week and tomorrow is the big party so I'll be volunteering at her school all day, it should be alot of fun.
We have some pretty good storms forecasted this upcoming week, and we really need more rain.
Hang in there. I'm sending positive energy your way.

Dorothy, how are you? I hope you're okay....

Happy thoughts,
Breezy

Hi all,

Rough week here trying to single-parent and get everything done. My daughter still has a lot of homework right now so she's been coming home and working on homework and projects from 5-10pm each night! She was tired today but I dropped her off early so she could do some things for band. My son was home sick the past two days so I made him clean his room (he wasn't that sick). I'm hoping to get my phone situation worked out today. Then have to work with our Girl Scout cookie mom to count boxes and money. Tomorrow I'll get everything deposited and she can finish her reports.

My folks are doing ok. My dad is still doing chemo treatments once a week. He showed some progress in the PET scan on the one tumor in one lung, but the other is the same. My mom has good days and bad, but she is home and at least she is getting better rest. She knows that assisted living is in the future, but wants to see how she does for a few months while she continues to recover. She is also getting in home physical therapy two days a week so that should have started today. Hopefully I can talk with them later.

Breezy...how has your week gone? How is everyone in your family?

Dorothy...how is the fence coming? It's pretty hard not to overdo it with that kind of work so I hope you are ok.

Time for me to run...have a few things to finish before I run errands.
Have a beautiful day!

Melissa, isn't it fun to see those numbers change when we;re trying to lose weight!?
I have put on weight, I've been eating after dinner this last week- week and a half, it adds up. But I know I can drop it again.
Puppies are a handful. Mine hasn't actually been a puppy in a long time. He's about 9 we think.
I'm very happy to be running again, though it's causing the joints in my feet, particularly in my big toes, to hurt. It's worth it. I didn't run today, I did Zumba instead. I love that too.
emoticon
How are your parents?
Dorothy, how are you?
I wish you all the best,
Breezy

Breezy...that's awesome! Good for you, and a good time for a mile too. I need to get back to running now that the weather is warming up. I was up to almost 5k at one point.

I weighed myself today since I haven't done that in a long time and I was very surprised. I'm down a total of 5 lbs. I didn't do anything special...I've just been keeping up my smoothies at lunchtime and getting as many fruits and veggies in as possible. I probably lost some weight while I was dealing with all my parents health issues...lots of stress and I know I wasn't eating as much.
I finished my piano invoicing this morning and I had to give the puppy a bath since he rolled in something nasty outside. Then had to get myself cleaned up!

Beautiful day here, but time to get back to work ;)
How is everyone doing this week?

Breezy...hope the weekend brings good things for you! Do you have any plans?

Dorothy...how are the posts coming along? How is your ankle doing?

I was out yesterday with a friend looking at a few assisted living facilities close by. We'll look at more next week. I'm trying to see what the options are here and trying to get my parents to move here in the next year so that I can be close by them.

Busy weekend ahead with my son's soccer tournament all weekend, I have some piano work to do, lots of cleaning, and a boy scout event Sunday.
I have finished the hardest part of selecting spring music for my intermediate students. So now it is on to my beginners. But that takes much less time and is a lot easier.
Both of my kids have had a lot of projects and extra homework this week so they were both up late last night finishing projects. I know they'll both be tired tonight.

emoticon Have a beautiful weekend everyone!

My mom should have some home health/physical therapy coming in each week but they'll know more after meeting with a home health nurse tomorrow.

Busy here and I'm tired now so I have to get to bed!

Hello,
I'm sorry you're Mother is having such a difficult recovery, Melissa.
Things here in California Valley are a bit chilly. But I had to mow my lawn today! My mood hasn't improved much. I'm trying to figure out if it's a nutritional deficiency.
Dorothy, how are you?
blessings to you all

Hey everyone!
Well...I did have a flu bug, but I feel better today. At least I'm able to eat so I have some energy again. Now my daughter seems to have a cold :(

If all goes well my mom will get out of rehab on Tuesday and my brother will take her home. His son (college age) is going with and will stay with my parents for about a week to help out and get a few things set up for them. She is still using a walker, but her heart and lungs are continuing to recover. The docs have all said it will take at least 6 months for them to really recover.

Another busy week here for everyone and lots of rain in the forecast. I will try to check in more this week.

How is everyone doing? Breezy...any better? Dorothy...how are the posts and fence coming? Haven't heard from Krist so I will try to reach out to her and make sure she is ok.

Take care all,
Melissa

Hi all,

Breezy...hope to hear from you soon...hope you are ok.

Sorry I have not been doing much team stuff here. I will try to get things refreshed for next month. I woke up sick during the night...flu like symptoms. But hopefully I can perk up here today. There is a bad flu strain going around here but I don't have the high fever others have reported.

I was able to get a lot of cleaning done yesterday so I'll just rest today until it's time to teach. I've kept toast and ginger ale down now so maybe I can build myself up a bit with lunch.

Beautiful weather here...hope everyone is ok.

Sending hugs and prayers your way. emoticon

My daughter and I had a STEM event yesterday with Girl Scouts hosted at Lockheed Martin so that was interesting. They did a great job encouraging young women to stay interested in science, math, technology and engineering and we met women execs and engineers all day. Also got a great tour of one factory where they build some fighter jets and large cargo planes.

Today the kids are still off school so we have a lot of cleaning up to get done. Lots of rain here last night but the temps stayed above freezing. Time for me to get to work!
Have a great day all!

Breezy...so glad you are doing so well...and I love the pic! Beautiful! It sounds like you are taking good care of yourself, so keep up the great work. The weather is confusing here too...60 yesterday and only 35-40 today.

Dorothy...how are you? How is the fence working out?

I'm still so far behind with everything here. And I've been really tired this past week. So I've had a hard time just keeping up with my daily routines. I know I'm fighting a cold so I've been doubling up on my supplements and trying to get more rest. My phone has not been working so that has been frustrating this week too...didn't realize how dependant I was until now. My DH is going to take it in today and see if he can upgrade it.
I also had to get my van fixed and now I have to have the emissions retested so that I can get my tags renewed. Always something!

My mom is still in a rehab center trying to get stronger. She is doing PT each day, but having some trouble still so she may stay until next weekend...we'll see. My dad had chemo and has had a rough week by himself. He's getting meals from friends at church, but he just doesn't feel good. My brother from MI is there now for a few days to help out. I've been on the phone each day trying to take care of a few things for them. I know they have no interest in assisted living, but I've told both of them that if they lived here in Atlanta I could take care of them much more easily. They wouldn't have to struggle so much. I know they don't want to move, but I am free every morning and can do a lot for them before I have to work in the afternoons and evenings.

I'm going through all my music this weekend to pick out recital pieces for my students. I play through most everything I have and write down 5 or 6 choices for each student and then they have to pick 2. I enjoy it, but it is exhausting to be on the bench playing for hours on end. The kids here are off school for the long weekend...don't go back until Wednesday. No special plans here though. Might get an ice storm on Monday so that may shut things down anyway.

Time for me to go...have to get ready to run a few errands. My daughter needs new pointe shoes for ballet and we need a few groceries.
Take care all,

Melissa

I need to do the same. All my fence posts are leaning out and will need to be replaced in the next few years. I have two sides of 2 1/2 acres to do. yikes!

Well I went to the doctors today and am doing well. It was warm today and was able to clean the other trash can out. Tomorrow I will start with digging the rotten posts out (one at a time) and get that all done hopefully in about three weeks depending on if my son gets his friend to help and is not still sick. Other than that I will be doing most of the work. Good way to get some arm work in too.

emoticon It's really warm here, in the seventies right now. This time of year it's usually in the fifties. I'm trying to keep indoors during the middle of the day. All my outdoor plants are confused! My friend sent me her wii that she wasn't using so I can do zumba again, I love it! I've been doing that for exercise, and walking in the morning. I hope you're doing well!

That is great and do you feel any better with the increase? Hope that you do. Not doing much Saturday but did get more plants in the pots. Have two plants and three rose buses to plant then I am done with that.

But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Dorothy, thanks for asking! My appointment went great. The Dr. increased my anti depressant by a small amount and thats it. I consider that a successful appointment, no major changes!
How are you?
How is everyone else?

Melissa you did not abandon us, I told the other team but forgot this one and your family needed you more than we needed you so take care and get some rest.

Breezy hope that he can get it working for you on the meds. Let us know

Well had to turn on the AC because it got in the low 80's and was very humid but we are suppose to go down in the 60's after that front come through and I look forward to the cooler temps and being able to turn off the ac again.

Dorthy, thank you for the tips, I'll watch for that.
Melissa, I'm really sorry to hear about you're Mom's troubles, I feel really bad for you both. I hope things settle down for you soon. All is okay here. Just very cold! I've got an appointment with my psychiatrist on Thursday that I'm nervous about, I need to talk to him about my meds. Wish me luck!

Hi all,
I'm so sorry I abandoned you! My mom has been in the hospital for the past month and it has been quite a roller coaster. I've been there 3 times to help and she is finally on the mend so hopefully today she will be transferred to a rehab facility.
She went in the hospital for pneumonia, but a blood infection was discovered so she was transferred to a bigger hospital. Her pacemaker had caused the infection so that was removed. At the time, the cardiac surgeon did not put in a temporary one because the docs felt that the less hardware in the body the better while the infection was clearing up. But a few days later she went into cardiac arrest, had to be intubated, and then went into kidney failure. She was stabilized and put on dialysis to flush her kidneys. She spent about a week on life support and then had a new pacemaker put in. Within a couple of days she responded and was able to be off the ventilator. A week later her kidneys were responding and recovering on their own so she was also taken off dialysis. This past week she has done well to regain strength, but she will still have a long road ahead.
In the meantime, my dad is still doing chemo and getting through the side effects. It's been rough trying to take care of both of them, but my brothers and I have been taking turns.

I'm tired, but glad to be home finally and getting back to my routines. I have a huge backlog of things to catch up on, but I'll get there.
Hope you all are doing well...looking forward to getting caught up with you all!

Melissa

Thanks and be careful with putting holes in the windows since that can lead to mold growing in that area too, and it can rot the frame too. I got the posts tarred and now they are drying so that I can get them in the ground without them rotting.

It's pouring here. All our windows were leaking. My husband put holes in the window frames for the water to drain out, it seems to be working. Good luck with your fence!

It was a good day. I got my hair done by a professional stylist, for the first time. My daughter did as well. It was fun. And she did a really good job.

Sounds like you may have a problem with wheat. I get that when I eat wheat and then the runs come. I hope that you take it easy for a couple of days. Those flares can get you down real bad and you don't want to end up in the hospital.

I think I'm heading into a flare. I'm losing weight and energy, I think it's because I have been pushing too hard and spending too much time in the sun. My stomach hurts alot of the time too, a very sharp, acidy pain. Does anyone else get this, and if so, what do you do?

It is and it takes me three days to dig that hole for just one. Hopefully my son's friend will help me with it. I live in Florida so every thing is green here too. That is why I can do the posts in the winter and it is better to do it in the cooler weather than in the summer where it gets in the 90's. This is the first time I will be doing it in the winter so maybe it won't take me as long.

Sounds like some pretty labor intensive work! I inherited 2 1/2 acres and we have alot of stuff that needs to be hauled off. My house needs a bit of work too. I'm very blessed to have it though and don't ever feel burdened by any of it. I have a gopher problem but I have some above ground gardening containers and look forward to spring so I can get to planting! Of course, here in my area of California, it already looks like spring . Everything is green! emoticon

I have to fix my posts and I can't afford some one to come and do it, so I have to do it along with my son, when he can. But with all this wind and real cold weather it has to wait and my posts have to dry out before I can seal them before putting them in the ground. When we dig just two feet we hit water and that is why they are rotting. Sitting in water all the time, I am also putting them in buckets with cement too. That will give it three ways of protecting them.

not sure what is going on, maybe they are sick or have family problems that need their attention more. I know Melissa's parents are not well. Pray for her family.


As for the exercise if you feel that it is doing you good then keep doing it, just maybe get a brace for your wrists to protect them.

If it is hurting you then it is not good and you will be doing more damage than good. I think maybe you need another way to exercise

If I'm on it long enough, and move fast enough, my heart rate goes up. I think I'm going to use it while listening to audio books. I think I am burning some calories. I'm not sure if it's worth the impact on my joints though.
