I actually pierced my own ears when I was 19 the old fashion way and then a few years ago they closed up. Good to have them open again. Don't have to worry about any other earring for another 6 weeks as I am not supposed to take these out until after 6 weeks. Gives me time to get some others. These are hearts-24 K gold. Nice earrings.

Congrats on the ear piercing. I've had them since i was 14 and have always loved it. Added second ones 13 years ago for a sparkly cubic zirconia studs that always stay on and love that , too. I am such a girly girl anyway.

Lots of snow down here today but we are venturing out to a birthday party in Stamford then shopping at Whole foods in Darien. i haven't been anywhere but the kid's gym all week and going stir crazy. Also too much cooking baking and eating with no movement besides housecleaning. Not good.
Going home tomorrow morning and coming back monday evening. Crazy schedule.

My parents passed away years ago in Florida-Mom passed first and then the next year-Dad passed. Wish they were still around and then again I am happy that they do not have to see today's world. They did not have to go to a Nursing Home or have dementia. So, that was good. A blessing.

We are looking to move south this spring.

Happy New Year!

My Father has gone to glory with Jesus, My Mom , my husband and all the loved ones gone before. I miss him but know he is finally resting and at peace.

The last few weeks have wreaked havoc with my nutrition as i gave in to the comfort foods offered by loving family . When i get back to my daughter's on monday it will be a tough go to get back on track but i will do it!

Carol, stay warm and safe in this snow. James! Come out to play! How are you? Praying for your recovery!

peace, Fran

Well another day of drudge here.

You can easily tell the rehabbing jocks here. Not just by there muscularity. But their hardened mind set.

Since I've been here I have had 2 athletes as roommates. The first came in after me and he already gone. The second is still here, but they are talking about his exit plan.

ME? The staff are still trying to get me to walk.

It was a year ago, when the Rensselear weather was mild and sunny. I walked from Starbucks along Route 4 to Red Mill Rd. (Rt. 150). My return walk was from there (again along Rt. 4) to the I-90 exit 8 in Defreesville, turn around back to Starbucks. Have a couple Grande's, the drive to the YMCA for a swim in the pool.

Today I can stand with the assist of the Parallel Ballet bars. The back to the arm ergometer & stationary rower. The staff tell me I am still losing weight. How much??????

Tomorrow I go to nearby Imaging Center for X-Rays and MRI. Which of course means they have to unscrew my brace from my. Then when they are finished I get screwed again.

Well dinner just arrived, so it's time to go.

Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS & a HEALTHY NEW YEAR. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Well, Mr Enigma, you surely don't say much, do you?
Wishing you all the best with your recovery -physically and mentally.
I hope your family and friends are able to get to you for visits to give support, love and maybe some home cooking.
God bless you this Christmas and through the new year!
Love and peace, Fran

The enigma surfaces.

Hi gals. The SP APP finally works. I've lost track how many years it took, but it works.

I'm in leg braces. It doesn't seem to matter. I still fall over. Also the knee hinges either lock up or cut into my thigh. Staff is trying to get me out of WHEELIE IRONSIDE. Yup I named my chair.

Those times I'm feeling like a big kid I call it "POP POPPA WHEELIE IRONSIDE". This joint is starting to get to my head.

I can hear the night nurse doing bed check. Gotta go.

i missed the worst of the storm being down in Mamaroneck but now that i am home for 2 more weeks, the snow can please stay far far away. I am scared of driving in even the tiniest bit, even though i braved Central NY winters for 7 years and had no choice at all in whether i wanted to drive or not.
Very busy today getting some furniture ready to drive down to my daughter's in a rented van with one of my sons. He doesn't want to do it really so it should be a most unpleasant task. Then, it's back to caring for my dad while trying to put together some sort of Christmas dinner and maybe some cookie baking. Hell,i haven't even got any decorations out except for a partially done tree.
Bah humbug!

Well, we have lots of snow now. I knew sooner or later we would get hit with it as it is winter after all. And one of the things it does best here in winter is snow. Looks great on pictures and post cards-but hate to get out in the white fluffy crap. Roads are crappy-be careful out here.
My son and his wife live in the NYC area (Brooklyn) and he just told me they now have snow there as well.

Everyone stay safe and warm!!!! Shopping online as too crappy to get out.

No Christmas shopping out there at all. I ordered a few things online, tho.Not much money and not much into any of it yet. My tree is up and half ot the lights are on but since i spend all but a very few hours of each weekend at my father's house, things can't get done in my own home. I did put up a mini tree for Dad, tho and it made him smile. emoticon emoticon
I ate too much carby food this weekend and even tho i brought my rebounder with me, i never got on it. I'll do better next weekend.
Now i am back in Mamaroneck and just made my very healthy smoothie to get me off on the right start.
Carol, stay warm and safe during the storm tomorrow. J, please check in! Anyone else out there? Well, if you are keep making healthy choices each and every day!

Been busy at work -it is that time of the year again. Not enjoying the cold temps, but it is that time of the year. I do like looking at all the lights and decorations that are up so far. We also have our tree up now. Love the lights!

I am in a rut here and need to make better use of my time to get some form of exercise in each day. When it's nice out, Wyatt and i walk and play at the park but these rainy chilly or freezing days, not so much.
When i am home and at my Dad's i also need to get moving. No way am i giving up on the new size 4 pants! Mind you, only one pair but , it felt good when the sales woman told me i had to go down a size to get a good fit!! Yippppeeeeee!

So, now, I will have to keep doing the work only differently but it will happen!

Carol, take care. J, please check in again. Are you just trying to be elusive and enigmatic ? Our man od mysteyr-that's you!!

Hi Gang,

Just awakened to ask if I'm asleep. WTH?

Carol, the Palisaides are on the New Jersey side of the Hudson. I'm just north of the George Washington Bridge & Fort Lee, NJ.

Fran, 1010 WINS is saying you guys are getting an early Nor'Easter. Don't go driving if you don't have to. You know as well as I the combo of snow, freezing temps, & icey road is not anything WE want to get caught in.

Rehab is tough. Exhasting even for me. The nurses & pt's have tried to get me upright every afternoon. I either fall over ( they catch me) or I'm in pain. Then back to ole' wheelie. My chair.

This place most have good street creid. Their are a bunch of jocks in rehab all over the place.

I've been kevitching about the SP App since the rollout of ver.1, well I just found a mobi access to the SP site. AND NO ADS. HAZA.

Oh oh. Got caught by the mean cna. Gotta go.

Stay healthy, safe, and don't max out your plate later today.

Carol, take care with the driving and i hope you have a nice holiday while you are working. and when you finally get home to relax.
J, what can i say? I miss you here and hope you are recuperating and rehabbing so you can be happy healthy and mobile again! God bless!
NOT looking forward to the expected snow storm. I am a wimpy when it comes to driving in it and i will need to get to my dad's to care for him. OY!!
At any rate i am filled with gratitude for what i have in this life. I have a home, warmth, food and family.None of them are perfect but the blessings abound none the less.
Peace, Fran

Well, Buffalo got bombed and we (Albany,NY) are supposed to get some snow coming up but nothing like the Buffalo area. Thank goodness.
It has been overly busy at work at the hospital for this time of the year. (a lot of sick patients)

Hubby and I are doing OK-just trying to get by the holidays in one piece.

I am home for a week but can't really enjoy it as i need to be at my father's home most of the time and nights to relieve my brother of his night duty. There will be no traditional Thanksgiving this year which saddens me. It was my husband's favorite and all the family loves it too.
For Dad, though, there is sacrifice and love and thanks for his long and giving life. I know we won't regret it.
Peace, love and gratitude
Fran

J sorry to hear about your happenings! Where is the Palisades? Hope you get better soon.
Sounds like you are in a Rehab Facility.

Hi CDNY,

I know it has been 2 months since I posted but at least I'm alive. Somewhat.

I can't walk, unassisted, yet. And I have enough metal in my legs to set of airport alarms.

I tried numerous times to use the SP App to read articles or team post. Not gonna' happen.

Since my last leg surgery I have been moved twice. Yesterday I got upgraded to a Rehab along the Palisades. So I can sit, in my wheelie, in the community room and see across the river and the Cloisters.

At least in this place I can have my laptop, no Wi-Fi, for 2 hours at a clip. But only every other day.

Today was Veteran's Day. There were all sorts of visitors coming and going. Veteran's groups. Gold Star Mom's. Church groups. Kid's and Scout Troops. Homemade snacks, and snacking, all day. So my first day of rehab was cut down to 10 mins. of an arm argronimer. So tomorrow is another day. DAMN.

Frannie, your Dad is always in my prayers. As far as considering a nursing home, when my Mom had to be placed she needed long term Medicaid Senior Care. Without ANY family members knowledge my sister signed a lean against Mom and Dad's home. Mom lived out her final years in a place she despised. Now 4 yrs. after passing we get a bill from the County Dept. of Law for $45,000.00 + a pay back penalty interest. If Dad owns his home have one of your boys (or you yourself) take over the title, at least 6 months before Dad needs additional help.

Carol welcome to another season of COLD.

I was going to post some photos from my incident with the taxi and the horse carriage, but I forgot to download them today. Maybe Thursday if I can use my Laptop again..

Well. What do you know? The aide just brought in some evening snacks. Who know?

He says he'll be back in an hour to lift me into bed. WOOOO.

Tomorrow I get a roommate. Life in the fast lane has sure slowed down.

Stay well and healthy. Enjoy the Holiday Season.

JVANAM

My Dad is 92 and in failing health. he needs 24 hour supervision. we promised him we would always keep him home but it is very difficult to keep this promise and also keep him safe with the amount of care he needs. We are doing our best and trying to get extra nursing help when ever we can.
He is a man of strong faith and i am praying to be guided to what would be his best and highest good.

Brrrr! Hate thinking about what is still to come. YUCK!
I did ok this weekend but only exercised Friday when i worked in the yard.I tried to eat well but had too much sugar. It's an addiction that i cannot quit cold turkey for good and ever.

Have a blessed week!

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.
