Oh my freakin' goodness! So sorry to hear about this. You have a tendency to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, my dear man. Sending my warmest thoughts and asking the Lord's blessing on you to make easier your healing.
At least you are alive and recovering but what an ordeal for you to go through.
Are you still in NYCity or back up home now?
Is there anything i can do to help you out?
I am also sad for the others involved in your accident and sorry that an innocent horse had to lose its life.

I will keep you in my prayers,
peace and love, Fran

Let It Go

If peace is really what you want, then you will choose peace.
Eckhart Tolle

Always move forward toward peace and light. Let go of bitterness and negativity-these hold back your progress in life.
When you see these traits in others-know the wisdom hasn't come to them yet and be ever mindful of your own journey.

Failure is giving up what we want most for what we want now.

Hi Gang;

1st I have to ask for your indulgences. I have only my left hand to type with presently, So sorry for misspellings and punction errors.

2nd for being incommunicado for about a month.

On Aug. 7 I was crossing Columbus Circle. An ny post delivery truck cut into the circle toppling a handson carriage, injured the horse, later set down, carriage driver and passengers toppled over me into the street away from the Post truck. The carriage landed on top of me.

taken to Columbia pryss. a lot of broken bones. during surgery had another heart attack. The dr. did there best to put humpty dumpty together again.

now in pt and ccu rehab. till now I had no computer. my cell was crushed in the incident. a friend of mine let me barrow her old netbook. it has a tiny key pad, but even, its difficult to hold the shift key and a letter at the same time.

enough pity party.

yesterday I stood up alone. Monday I'm hoping to start walking.

thanks to hospital and rehab food I lost 11 lbs.

getting tired. ttfn emoticon

Reunion was very nice. I sat with friends from long ago and renewed those relationships which makes me happy.When someone said "Fran, you look even better than in high school" I wasn't sure exactly how to take that but decided it was all good!
I was a nerdy wallflower back then and believe myself to have made many improvements since. And, I also really don't care as we do when ever so young.

Now, decisions need to be made about whether this will be a productive yard work day or a lazy slothful self indulgent day. I know what i'd like but think the lawn mower will be in use before too long.

Blessings and peace, Fran

Trying to stay focused on healthy choice and getting my walks in. 45th high school reunion Friday night!! Oh my! I can't believe i have ever even been 45 years old let alone be out of high school that long. I dragged my poor husband to the 40th but now i am going alone. Full circle, it seems, the girl who never dated and was not asked to dance is alone again. But it's part of my be brave campaign so i must do it. Who knows, maybe someone will even talk to me!!!

Regular is good! i guess i have a regular routine, too, even though it involves 4 days in one place and 3 in another. After 19 months of it-it's as routine as it can be.
My exercise at home is the yard work and housekeeping. Down here it is walking with the little guy.
They should be in their house this winter so next spring, i'll get to do some gardening here, too.
Hope everyone is moving in some way, hopefully in the fresh air!!

Brrrr! TOOOOO Chilly for the middle of August! After going to Mass this morning I AM going to get out there to mow, trim, weed and plant and that's all there is to it. The errand/shopping list is growing but it will need to wait.If i have to spend a cool grey day doing yard work , that's fine. Tomorrow should be nice and i can enjoy the fruits of my labor and maybe get out to do something nice!

I hope all emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon of you are doing well.

J, Anna, anyone else, please check in. Carol, you rock, as usual!

Remember , if what you are doing isn't giving you the results you need, why are you still doing it? I changed it all up and got great results and feel much better. For me, it was adopting an almost totally plant based diet. Once in a great while , I have eaten something that has dairy or egg in it but with effort and planning, I'll resist that , too. Being Italian, I miss some of that , but, II know it's got to go!

Make changes for the better!!!

Peace, Fran

Let It Go

That sounds like a plan, J. I'll find someone up here to go to the Spectrum with me. We never do anything downstate, ever. They come home from work , eat supper,play with the baby and stick their faces in phones, computers, etc. We rarely even converse. emoticon They can't imagine even going to Target in the evening let alone actually going to a theater. I'm totally isolated and removed from the world down there. It's just how life is for the moment. I try to make the most of it up here when i have at least tried to make sure the house will remain standing for one more week. emoticon
I should buy more lottery tickets. emoticon

Peace and love, Fran emoticon emoticon emoticon

I don't bet and don't go near any race track-saves money. I am just not into that.

The Trials and Tribulations at The Track.

So the last time I posted I was using the SP App. This, posting to a team page, is definitely one of those things you can not do via the app.

So I quickly finished my post when the betting windows were closed for the 8th race. Now I was at a table in the club house area. I could not see what was going on in the mounting area. One of the horses had a heat attack. It took an hour to get the equine EMT's to the location, get the horse into the trailer, and get the remainder of the field out onto the track. So while I waited I had a couple tall cool ones. emoticon emoticon

Well after the race I had to get going to SPAC. By the by, I lost in the 8th.

The ballet was stupendous. It was the first time this decade that I saw the Bolshoi. But not the last. emoticon

The Bolshoi will be presenting DIRECT FROM MOSCOW the entire 2014 - 2015 season in movie theatres worldwide, vie Fathom Events. Which means while you are upstate the ballet is available at Regal and Spectrum. Metro NYC the ballet will be available in almost every theatre. So grab the girls and go to the ballet. Also in the theatre you will have a better prospective than if you where there. because of multiple camera angles you will be able to see the show as if you were a member of the corps de' Ballet.

Carol i don't envy your grand jury duty, ugh. When i look at your tracker, i am so impressed with your accomplishments!Here i struggle with the few pounds left that i want to lose and you are going great guns. Congratulations! I hope you are enjoying marvelous health benefits from all your hard work and also a little fun with buying new clothes!
I just bought a new dress and blouse, both in XS and pants size 4.It makes me feel terrific but i am guessing Ann Taylor uses "vanity sizing"because i truly do not believe i would fit in that anywhere else. Having once needed XL and size 20, i will still rejoice over an 8, trust me! Being i am only 5 ft tall, you know i am not at all thin but just feeling and looking better . It will be a never ending battle.

J, I miss evenings in Saratoga! Rachel and I at the ballet and Ron and I just strolling and having drinks,eating dinner. Haven't even been up there with the girls for a long long time. This part time upstate part time down life is too nuts to do more than take care of my home and whatever else is needed . Have not managed to go strolling anywhere!
I am glad you are well and enjoying each day! Love the reference to Woodstock! Were you there? My mommy wouldn't let me go!

Well, i am waiting for the service guy to repair my aged dryer and then i will get on with my day!
Take care all!

peace and love

Day 4 at the track. So far I'm playing, dining, & theatre going with their money. emoticon

Carol, I haven't yet givein up on your swap-me.

My niece is Miss Bargain Buyer. Last weekend, at a family party, she and I talked about this. She said there are no organized swap-me's locally. Most people get two or three friends/families together for a garage-lawn-curbside-sidewalk sale. Here in NY you are only allowed to offer two such households per year. There are other provisions to that. Check with you city clerks office or city alderman about whys and wherefores.

What Mandy & the Girls do is get together at on girls house and have there sale. Then next month the sale is at another girls house, & so on.

Another option is, if you are looking just to rid the house of stuff (not make money), or to buy pre-owned items inexpensively Mandy goes to the various thrift shops. She says the better items are in Colonie, Latham, Schenectady, Scotia, Galway, and Saratoga. She did say to stay away from Sal's Army in Downtown Albany.

Hi Grannie Frannie;

So the other night (Mon. 7-21) when I was up at 'Toga it was "you win some, you lose win". I did real good at the track. Enough to buy dinner & pa for the day. Post dinner it was to be Post Time for the Bolshoi. Quick out of the gate only to miss the first turn and get tossed off my nag.

It was the wrong night.

Not only that but the dance group MOMIX was offering a Master class. No performances.

The Bolshoi actually open last night. Well I has a prior commitment at Williamstown Theatre Fest. So here I am waiting for the eighth race to step off. Head to dinner. Then again to SPAC for Don Quixote. I found out if you buy our tickets at the Saratoga Chamber you can get good inside seats on the same day. Should T-storms occur I want to be inside. My years of sitting on the lawn ended when they built the Betel Arts Center over Max Yasger's farm.

So anyway I have trying out the new and alleged improved SP Phone App. Carol I know you don't recall the previous SP App, Frannie & I do. One Word: NIGHTMARE!!!!!

Well this version has been repaired in some parts. However, you still need to return to the full site for some things.

Smartphone users may not have many complaints. Tablet users, as I am now, will need a large bottle of Zanacs. Even with NYRA Wi-Fi it's gotta be fixed to survive in the crowded App Market race.

Speaking of which the betting windows on the 8th have just closed. So I gotta go.

Stay happy and healthy. emoticon

That was an uplifting read, J!

I've never been to the flat track but i LOVE the ballet! My daughter and i spent many nights for many years on the lawn for the NYC ballet. Then we narrowed it down to one lovely evening with great seats inside for her birthday present.When she married and couldn't get up to go with me i went alone but as nice as the ballet is, i was far too lonely. Now it has been a few years since i've been .
How was the Bolshoi?

Carol. you're still losing weight and i am so happy for you. Healthy is good!

I get to go home tonight and even tho my train ride isn't the best part of the week, i will be in my own bed, be able to snuggle with my dog and have coffee on my deck in the morning. Ahhhhh!

Take care !

peace, Fran

Well life, for once, is quite. I'm thinking of going to 'Toga today for a daytime track visit followed by the Bolshoi ballet. Talk about divergent.

Well, I have been off work the past two days due to Grand Jury duty. I will be off work every Thursday and Friday for it. The last day of Grand Jury will be August 15th.
Back to work today and going in at 7pm for a 12 hour shift.

Going to the Grand Jury in the mornings is not bad as it is early enough-it is the getting off part. The traffic in the afternoons downtown is overly busy.

So far so good! If the rains hold off so i can mow, my yard will look nicer for my company. Not that they care.The house will be neat and things that need to be clean will be but the rest? no way no how.
I am NOT even cooking and that's a big deal for me as i pride myself in putting out good food but my body and mind can't make it happen. I am getting fresh fruit , veggies, sushi, pizza, bagels and dessert from Villa Italia. No one will be hungry and i am certain there will be no complaints.
Ok, back to work.
Happy 4th!

Well, it costs 13.00 for a cab to go home from the Albany County Judicial Center in downtown Albany (Lodge street). I think I got a few more gray hairs from the way he drove. No wonder I don't usually take a cab.

Oh how i hate jury duty. Add that to not liking to drive and Albany parking is impossible, It makes my skin crawl and blood curdle to think of jury duty. I have driven to crossgates and taken a bus in which works if one must do it.

Hope you can keep your glucose levels in the normal range. It's good that you can bring in food.

J, i don't think golf, mini or otherwise, can use up all those calories but i am sure you made up for it later, right??

I am going to work at cleaning my house today in anticipation of company coming in next weekend. My girls and I are going to see PAULMcCARTNEY!!!!!! I have seen him several times over the years and he puts on the best show ever, bar none. He's been the man of my dreams since '63! EXCITED!!!!!!

Enjoy this gorgeous weather and have a safe and happy Independence Day!!!!!

peace, Fran

Grand Jury duty tomorrow. I just dislike going downtown. Hubby will drop me off and I will take a cab back. Tomorrow is the first day-the day they pick. I am #41 and so I am pretty close to the front of the number line.
My sugar has been dropping every so often and my surgeon says that is pretty normal this far out from my surgery. So, I am trying to keep a check on it every so often and when I feel it drop. They said I can bring in my glucometer, my kindle, bottle of water and my bag lunch and some snacks in case I need something quick.

I just finished walking 36 holes of golf... emoticon

OK. So it was mini-golf. emoticon

Today the Churches Men's Club had a Kid's event after Mass. appx.25 men took over 60 kids to the mini-golf on Columbia Turnpike emoticon

That was followed by burgers, fries, and ice cream at the snack bar. emoticon

Does a stop/start walk followed by a "MONSTER SUNDAE" considered equilateral Kcals out/ Kcal in?? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today i will patch a wall, try to hide a water stain on the ceiling, reaattach a toilet paper holder and do some gardening. . I am having company in 2 weeks and my house has fallen into a bad state without my husband here to nag into getting stuff done. So, it's up to me! I need a quick trip to home depot for wall anchors which are sure to be in the garage or basement somewhere but it would take longer to find them then to go out to buy them. Silly isn't it? All the other needed items i bought last week.
I ordered new glass for the cracked window. Boy, i never realized how much that repair could cost.Wow!
Next week is for cleaning and organizing and the next weekend , company arrives. Being gone all week is nerve wracking because there is so much more i'd like to do. Whatever. They love me so they say and don't care about my shabbyness. Good friends are like that!

Peace, Fran

Congratulations J about the tv show but especially about the new babies! Grandkids and great grandkids-woohoo!
You do have a big family and i am happy that you get together for the good times!
I was able to get an early train home today but i am stuck inside with this yukky weather. I suppose i should clean but i really need to talk myself into that prospect!

Let's hope there is a little sunshine this weekend at least so all the dads have an enjoyable fathers day.

Well as I popped to our wall, we had a family party tonight. The family came to town to celebrate the graduation from CSR one of my nieces, while her twin sister already graduated from the Harriman Campus Police Academy. So all of my siblings and spouses, children & spouses/dates, their children & dates, their children, and extended family & friends & guests.

Total 309 catered.

It was fun for a Tuesday. Better on the weekend but my sister could book the park site and the caterer both for today.

My eldest ("Bethy") brought with her a gift for me. It's a Vegghette.

you insert into the top any stiff veg, turn the device, and out the bottom come jullian sliced veg much like spaghetti.

For dinner tonight (Wednesday) we are going to make a big batch for all of my guys. To fake out the youngers we will mix the vegghette with fettuccini.

So I also got some more news. Bethy's daughter is pregnant again. Little Mylee will have a baby brother. My second great-G-kid.

Also my son and daughter were surprised to find out they were pregnant again. The last time they use fertility drugs, which resulted in two of the three babies not surviving. This time no Rx. I don't know about beer, booze, or wine as a drug of choice. So sometime in October comes my new BIG BOY. And sometime in November or December will be Baby ???. emoticon

Good Morning Team;

Well life has been extremely busy since May 15, the day the networks buy their shows for next season.

Well one of our two shows got picked up as a mid-season replacement. More info when we get close.

Frannie, thank you for the Gnome. I was just watching "Gnomeio and Juliet" with one of my granddaughters. She didn't get the story, but she loved the cartoon slap-stick.

To break the anxiety I have been spending time in the garden. The nieces and nephews have already started harvesting early growth. Squash, zucchini, green peppers, and the like. Even the melons have flowers. That starting the plants in the kitchen really paid off well.

Well my w/o's have slipped, a great deal. When I'm upstate the Va-R-o-o-o-m Room has filled in on some isolation, but its to easy to pass by a legit w/o. In the city it's to easy to make excesses not to go to the "Y".

Well enough "WHINNING, CARPING, & COMPLAINING". I got to figure out what I'm going to do today.

"I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

I had a snacky kind of day yesterday but overall is was ok. I took the baby to a park that is straight up hill so it really felt like a good power walk even tho it's only half a mile from here.
We will walk more today and i have already done a bit of cleaning so i am moving. Now for my breakfast smoothie!
yummy!

Again no word from J,. What are we to do with this guy? I know he's busy and he surely does keep moving!
Carol, how are you? I am well and glad the sun is shining as i need to be working on my yard today. Lots to do and hopefully by day's end i will have some flowers out there!

Any new members reading? Let us know how things are going. Spark was my lifeline when i began in 2007. It was hard work and has been all these years. There have been great moments and bad setbacks but right now i am almost happy with my body older and saggy as it may be, it's mine, it's healthy and i am grateful!
You can do this and reach your goals!
