I enjoyed being home for this long weekend and really do not want to go back but i have to.At least it will only be a 3 day week. I can handle that easy peasy. Add in some great long walks and lots of Wyatt hugs and it's all good!

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.

Very productive Thursday a bit less so on Friday and just going slowly but surely today!
I want to savor this weather!
Started off with a huge chunk of Easter bread and coffee this morning so that's not so great for nutrition value but it made me smile-yummy it was veganliscious!I'll make up for that!

And so after we sign the papers to renew the apt lease (as we did not hear anything on jobs yet)-we get an email from Wisconsin on a job for my Hubby-he will be doing a phone interview-they said the phone interview is good for a year-so if I hear from my applications at the same hospital there and hopefully we can turn around the lease signing-although some places are strict in that as soon as you sign the lease for the next year-you are stuck for the year.
Our new lease actually starts on July 1st and I may be able to use that if I hear from my job application there. Hubby can go through with a phone interview and we can go from there.
She (Recruter) may be able to get a hold of my Recruter and my phone interview can get set up as well. So, there is still a slight possiblity that we may be able to move this year-not holding my breath for it-still anything is possible.

Lake George is so nice, at least on a warm sunny day, right? I miss those long rides with my husband.
I have a 5 day weekend coming up!The bonus thursday is a great surprise but will be needed to try to buy and set up a new phone . I lost mine on the way to the park yesterday and couldn't find it. some kid probably has it but it has a passcode and i suspended service. Bummer. Not the worst thing to happen but i can't really afford this . Working out of town tho means i must have a cell phone.
Cheers on this gloomy doomy day! looking for some sunshine!

Carol, that sounds like the right thing to do. don't spend time fretting over what is not going to be but enjoy life as it comes. Hey, i need to take my own advice.
I am often times so sad and lonely but really need to keep finding lightness and joy as i go through each day.
Now, my focus is getting my legs stronger by walking as much as i can. The sciatica has made my life very painful but i just can't stop moving or i'll die.
I am looking forward to some warmth and sunshine which should arrive eventually.
peace, Fran

I hope your move comes soon, Carol.
I'm going up to shampoo my bedroom carpet. Having a dog is wonderful but they do make things smelly. While she's at the groomer's i am going to do some freshening up! too bad i can't open all the windows and let a beautiful spring breeze blow through.

Dismissed by the orthopedist today as far as the fracture. He had all sorts of meds and surgery to offer for the sciatica and painful knees but this momma don't play that.
We shall see what the future brings.
I need a not rainy day to work outside. I blew it off last week . II don't need sun and 70 just not cold and rain.What i really need is some big strong men to come over and knock this out in a few hours because it is going to take me weeks.

otherwise, life is cool!

I did walk a little this week even through the drizzle but not as much as i should to get stronger.
Better days are coming!

Oh boy , do i need to focus on healthy choices and proportions. I gained some weight through this ordeal and it's ALL in my thighs. No joke. Sitting for 4 months does not do legs any good. I can feel the fat over my knees and it feels terrible to me.
I believe I will conquer this too.

Rain rain thank you for coming to water all the thirsty things! Looking forward to more green and flowers, soon!

Again trying to motivate to work outdoors. If the sun peaks through that will help.If i stay in i might just bake and that wouldn't be so good.
I just love being home no matter what work needs doing.
I did well with healthy choices yesterday but not too much exercise and i need it to build up my strength. I'll do better today,
Have a great day!

Carol, that is a great challenge each and everyday. I am sure with your success you have found it worth it to be so much healthier. I give you so much credit for making that difficult choice to have the surgery.
For lunch yesterday i had a mixed green salad and didn't even finish that because we talked for 2 solid hours and forgot to keep eating.
Dinner was another story, i had 2 glasses of wine and a slice of bread and ate probably more than half of my pasta and broccoli rabe.It was good that my other meals were so spartan!
I'll be busy today so i am planning to stay on the light side.

peace, Fran

Going out to eat is a chore for us as I have to totally watch what I eat and I need to get the children's portion or a doggie bag to take home all I did not eat. Having my pouch of a stomach I do not eat much.

Relaxing is a good thing. Sometimes we need to learn to do it!
Going to take the little guy to the park today which will use up every bit of strength and energy but we will make it work!
I am happy it is a 3 day week. Next week will be 4! Yikes!

Worked two days this week and will do 3 days next and then my regular 4 days. I miss home but Wyatt is my sweet little boy so it's ok.
I am moving more, strengthening my whole body especially my legs which feel very heavy especially going up stairs. i know it will take time to build myself up but it is frustrating.
i even did a little yard work yesterday and will do more today.
I am also concentrating on food quality and portion control.
I hope all is well!

Carol, I am sorry to hear that the trip did not pan out the way you had hoped. Maybe it's because better things are coming?

I didn't go back to work this week and was also staying home next week but my daughter asked me to come. I'm going but we can't agree on when I'm coming home.This is stressing me out.

I might try to do a few minutes on the gazelle tonight and then snuggle on the couch under a blanket. I have to gt moving especially since my thighs are massive now after almost 4 months of sitting. Ugh.

Stay warm

We drove down to TN for the interviews and they did not offer us enough for us to want to move.

The driving was not good for us either way-especially the last few miles. It seems that we have just gotten older and do not do well on long drives now. Shorter drives are not bad-but all the way to TN and back are not.

Looks like we are not moving. Oh, well that will be cheaper.

Good luck with your interviews, Carol! I can tell how badly you have wanted this move.

My knees are giving me grief especially the knee on the injured leg. Also, sciatica problems are plaguing my recovery. I am hobbling like a little old woman and i HATE it. Did not forsee all these complications but will rise above and beyond soon enough.
I am going back to work next Monday. Don't even know how i will manage but i am going to give it a go.

Staying in today because there's no reason to be out there in this wind.

Peace, Fran

Carol, you think you may be able to make the move this year? Excellent news for you!
This was not a bad winter to have to stay up here though, right? After last year, this was very nice.

Now i am off to the market as soon as my son is ready to drive me. Soon, i'll be driving again!

peace, Fran

Carol, i hope all the crappiness is gone. A rainy Monday is not conducive to frolicking joy but think of the green grass and flowers that will grow soon!

I am now able to put light pressure on my leg and gradually increase it as i feel stronger and there's no pain. It isn't extremely painful but achy so i am not pushing it. I need complete healing so i can get on with life and don't need any setbacks. No no no no!

I am quite surprised that other than general flabbiness from not being active, i haven't gained as much weigh as i expected. This is good news to me. All i could think of was jeans that don't fit and summer clothes that i can't wear and that won't be the case. Sometimes things go much better than you think.

Take care!

Fran

Leap day! Doing nothing to celebrate it. What a waste.
2 weeks more of this and then i have to go back to work. i will miss being home but not the isolation
I need exercise and control over food so i can wear summer clothes when the time comes.

Thank you Carol. i am back to doing laps around the house though out the day. I was doing that before the rib injury and the vertigo so now i am easing back into it. Also i go up and down stairs on my bottom when i need to use the bathroom even though there is one down stairs. Anything to keep moving and get off the couch.
The hopping takes its toll on the good leg especially with the arthritis in that knee but i must try to regain the lost strength. Before too long, I'll be back with my grandson and he'll have me whipped within the first hour!
Being home is nice but not when i am a virtual shut in and not able to dig in and do the cleaning and reorganizing that takes a strong body. By that time, it will be spring and i will need to be outside taking care of the yardwork.
Doesn't even matter, i just want my life back.

Peace, Fran

Any easy walking you can do would be great for your muscles. They need to move-even if it is a little bit right now. bit by bit.

I actually got to go out last night. A friend picked me up and we saw a Beatles tribute band, Hey Jude! It was great to see people and hear my favorite music! I even fit in my jeans which were tight but snapped so that's a good thing. I am truly flabby and have lots of rebuilding to do.
The vertigo was far less troublesome friday and saturday although this morning i feel a little "spinny" but not too bad.
Happy sunday!

Still miserable with the vertigo. Who knew a broken leg could result in so many other problems? I was lucky in one way to not be even more seriously injured but these last weeks have been terrible. I am weak and flabby and dizzy lizzy. It will be a long road back to where i was hit.
Better days are coming!

I am glad we won't be getting the blizzard up here. It is supposed to hit where my daughter is by LI Sound but i wouldn't be there over the weekends anyway so even if i was working i 'd miss this one.
Emergency situations must be even more of a nightmare during these storms.I pray nothing horrible happens.

Supposed to have a big storm coming in this weekend-but I am inclined to think it will only bew a few flakes and some wind-of course the cold. We shall see. it won't be like Washington DC area=their hospitals are in disaster mode right now for the big storm and the city is shut down.

My son and gkids were here Friday evening and a cousin and aunt visited on Saturday.I actually got to go to Whole Foods on Saturday, too which was the first time i have been out since Christmas morning. It takes some effort but it was nice to leave the house. Sunday was totally lonely boring and sad. Guess there will be more days like that to come but by spring i will be back on my feet, back to work, and driving again. I will rock this!

Peace, Fran

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.

Keeping busy is a good thing. Time goes by faster and it's better for mind and body. Trust me, sitting here stuck in a house day after day is not good for either.

Thank you. I was walking on the sidewalk in Mamaroneck when a car turned into a driveway and knocked me down.Lost my independence for awhile which hurts almost more than the injury.
At least i didn't have to worry about driving today nor will i for some time to come. Hurry spring!!!

Monday and back in Mamaroneck. That week at home flew by but it was nice. Thanksgiving was great with the family there and such good and healthy foods. Plenty leftover for us and to send home with others, too. We were truly blessed.
I ate far too much and although i shopped, cooked, cleaned and decorated til i was exhausted, i didn't get out walking even once . I did get a walk in today and i need to make the next few weeks really good before i am home again doing it all over again!

Can't rev up the engines today but still have accomplished a few things. i need to do a little cleaning down here before i get into the dressing, it just feels better that way. My daughter and family are coming up today so i don't want to be cleaning still when they arrive.
I've done some vegan experimenting with an apple pie-we shall see tomorrow, oh my!
Enjoy your holiday whenever you take it!

Carol, i am glad you are better!
Today i will get my long walk to the sea wall which will do me good on all levels. It's great that autumn weather continues and winter hasn't come in for an early visit. I might still be able to walk if it doesn't get too brutal because i do have to take Wyatt to school anyway which is a short walk with him and he can be bundled in a stroller. Then, while he's there, i can walk as long as i want to before i freeze!
We will miss the playground though. He has been my trainer throughout the last several months making me run and climb with him!
