My knee is so much better this morning emoticon as I got out of the car at work, I said to myself it's wonderful when the body decides to work with you. I feel 20 years younger than yesterday emoticon Very grateful!

Didn't eat the best tonight but I had planned for it since it was a celebration. We ordered Pizza Hut Meat Lover's Pizza with half black olives ( for me ). We rarely order pizza so we both enjoyed it and I'll be super careful tomorrow what I eat. There is also cake tonight as well as a wine cooler for me ( I only drink one on my birthday, our anniversary, and New Year's Eve ). Neither of us drink other wise. But it's a way for me to celebrate a little more. Bob can't drink due to his heart condition but he'll usually take one swallow of my drink to celebrate with me.

It's infection in the cartilage, must have bumped the knee somewhere. Very painful, thankful for injection & painkillers although I hate taking it, will have to do the detox thing later. Hoping it will be good to go by this weekend, my dogs need a bath! emoticon

Me with my big mouth...just when I thought I was ready to take on anything, I get knocked down. Boohoo walking around with a pinched nerve in my right leg! had the worst weekend ever, came to work this morning but could not make it up the stairs. Had to set up a temp office in the boardroom - just doing the urgent stuff then off to the doctor.

Hope everyone is having a good day. I've been washing clothes all morning. Have the bed comforter in the dryer now and I'll be finished for another week.
Hope this will be a good week for all of you and you'll reach any weekly goal you've set for yourself. Remember YOU ARE WORTH THE EFFORT ! emoticon

Oh yes I love natural healing ways myself - discovered hydrogen peroxide for sore, swollen feet while we were moving emoticon wonderful! either soak or like we had a spray bottle and just sprayed our feet.

Feeling rested and ready to take on anything today, bring it on emoticon

After a very rocky weekend with hubby he managed to sleep well last night and is feeling much better today.
If you have Epson salt, mix some in your bath water and soak for awhile. Maybe that'll ease the soreness.

I am finally starting to feel more like myself. The fluid pill helped take some of the pressure off my back ( plus 5.2 lbs ), and today is the first day in 6 days it isn't hurting.

Hi Everyone. Hope you're all having a good day.
Decided this morning to see if taking a very strong fluid pill would help my back any by getting some of the excess fluid out of my system and I honestly think it has helped a good bit. My back has eased up a whole lot since taking the medication. Normally I don't take fluid pills as I'm allergic to sulfer medications but I felt it was worth the risk if I got some relief in my lower back. Now I've got to really watch the sodium so that it doesn't build back up.

I was talking to a newly"retired" friend the other day and he said he is working longer hours now than before! So much for the Golden Years, no time to sit and watch the sun go down emoticon maybe that is the reason why people live longer nowadays??

After another so-so, up and down week, I rebounded on Friday and went with the positive flow right into and through Saturday. For once, I got it right for both food AND exercise, instead of doing well on one and crapping out on the other. It's about 10pm (CA time), and I'm REALLY surprised: I am literally heading to bed. What I’m thinking is, I had a good day, so I better go to sleep before I screw it up!!! emoticon

I am allowing myself a last day if some freedom with food, we are going out with son and wife for my birthday lunch.
Then I must start looking and noting all I eat, the numbers are creeping up slowly. I eat healthily rather than for losing weight. How you all doing!? Irene

I simply love my weekends, the extra time to catch up in the kitchen, house and garden work is very precious to me. So proud with my newish cooking routine, I have been buying fresh vegetables in bulk and preserving of freezing it. Made Eggplant pickles last Saturday, very pleased with the results emoticon

Sunday, and the weekend, is over and I'm finishing up and settling down to sleep... I DID get several items crossed off my list, enough to be okay with my progress. Even better, I stayed on track food-wise, without the anxiety of the last two weeks; and remembered my meds on time, and to drink water regularly all day too.

I feel sure that, tomorrow I'll be able to pick up where I left off tonight, and continue to make good progress on what I want to accomplish!

Hope you had a good weekend ~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

This weekend is half over already, and I haven't crossed one item off my
"To Do" list. Maybe I can do it all on Sunday? Although if I couldn't do anything today... Since Joe died last Sunday, I have been on a roller coaster of changing moods, energy, and motivation. I'll write again tomorrow night.

Thank you, dear friends! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Ree, I remembered that you and your husband are in a very similar situation, and knew you would understand. The diagnosis WAS a great relief to me, but not for DH; it dashed any hope of reversing her decline and bringing her back to the way he remembered her.

I told him the diagnosis allows us to stop living in the limbo of "observing her behavior," and now we can move forward with what to do to best care for her. He's not ready to accept that she may need to go to a care facility - it's a terribly difficult decision to reach.

Hannah, thank you for the video link - I love the drums and beat! I haven't seen the movie, and hadn't heard the song before - I'm going to add it to my Netflix queue. Being on SparkPeople grounds me, and sharing with my Spark friends gives me that "Shaka Zulu" lift!

Here's the latest news on our personal soap opera:

DH and I are slowly getting used to our new schedule. Saturday is another swim day. With his Hemodialysis changed to the morning, it's hard for me to adjust to getting up and out early. Tomorrow's SparkCoach challenge is to try a completely new exercise - I'm going to try an elliptical machine at the gym!

Yesterday was a rough, rough,,rough day pain-wise - almost exactly the same as last Friday - but no option to stay home. Even though I'd slept nine hours,
I felt worn out all day. I took DH to Dialysis, and had my swim stuff; however, considering how I felt, I wasn't sure swimming was the best option.

However, last Thursday I DIDN'T swim - I really didn't have enough time, and had had an early and difficult morning - and the next day was the most painful I'd had in months. I decided to go and swim for as long as and with whatever intensity I could. (The pool was unusually cold, which also cut my time.)

When I got back to the Dialysis Center early, I decided to go for a walk (with my brand new walker, it's easier to do so). It was tough, but it felt good to be out in the air and push myself. How that would translate to Friday was the big question... and while today started very slowly, I had an excellent day!

Today's (Saturday's) focus is on Dialysis-and-24 Hour Fitness, as usual; but also a trip to the Farmer's Market or Sprouts to stock up on fresh freggies.
I also will use the weekend to organize my priority and task lists, especially those pertaining to caring for DH's Mom. Have a wonderful weekend! emoticon

Sometimes it feels like we are overloaded with others problems, but having a diagnosis for your mother in law Elizabeth will get some help, it is sad. More so for the carers than the patients themselves . do look after yourself too, it's not being selfish , it's self preservation and others need you to be strong minded now,
My husband has dementia and while not bad yet I do get stressed ,we are only humans after all not angels! We do our best,, thinking of you , emoticon Irene

Lots of changes going on... DH is healing well, more quickly than expected, so I moved back home full-time. I wanted to at least go over and sleep with DH each night; but my presence in MIL's house confuses and upsets her - she keeps asking when I'm taking her son away - so I'll be on my own again.

Today was emotional, challenging... and a GOOD DAY! emoticon emoticon

I started today early, with MIL's appointment to be evaluated for dementia -
we now have an official diagnosis of Alzheimer's - then dropped off MIL, took DH for his surgical follow-up (delayed an hour), then rushed him to dialysis.

At that point, I'd normally head to the pool and swim; but with the shortened time available, and more tasks to come after dialysis, I stayed in the car and rested (and did coupons and ads, and sang as loud as I wanted to the radio).

After I dropped off DH, I ran errands for them both, getting home past 7pm...
I can't believe it's already midnight! I've been vegging, letting my mind unwind.
I left my swimsuit (etc) in the car, to be ready for my next pool opportunity.


Today I said "yes" to pushing myself to do what needed to be done, and
"yes" to NOT pushing myself when I needed to take a break and rest. emoticon

G'night ~ emoticon emoticon

Today seemed to go better overall - being mostly out of MIL's house helped.
Despite the stress and physical demands, it's been a successful Saturday...
Home health nurse visit for DH; then his dialysis, and I went swimming and
had a great workout. After, I did errands, and returned home to relax and watch a DVD; now to Spark and work online. I can head back to MIL's soon -

I LOVE sleeping next to my sweetie again! Appointment to have wireless internet installed at MIL's house tomorrow, so I'll take my laptop back with me. If it goes as planned, I'll be Sparking from there tomorrow!
Have a great Easter Sunday ~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

Building a new daily routine...

I purposefully put aside medical, MIL and business issues for awhile, and had a fun-oriented evening with DH. I found myself getting short-tempered with him, even though I know his brain is muddled right now with pain pills, so a long relaxing cuddle is just what I needed to get back on track mentally.

Even though this schedule - taking care of DH as he recovers from surgery, and watching over his Mom in his place until he's better - is kicking my butt,
I'm giving it all I've got and staying on task! Another late night, but finished with trackers and a quick Spark, so I'm heading back to MIL's house to sleep with my sweetie again... around the drain and pain pump and bandages...

Oh man, I'm tired! G'night ~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

Morning, Ladies! emoticon Here's what's happening:

More complications with DH's Hemo-dialysis catheter! He felt SO good after the surgery yesterday to clear it out, it was a big emotional lift along with the physical improvement; but when DH went to dialysis today, it wouldn't work
AT ALL. That means no dialysis, so he's off schedule.

I'll be taking DH up into Los Angeles early tomorrow to an "Access Center" (not sure what that is), so THEY can try to get the catheter working again.
If they can, hopefully they'll find a way for him to get dialysis right away; but
if THEY can't fix it, I don't know WHAT happens next...

My emotions are right at the breaking point - or maybe I'm already past it?
My instincts told me I should stay with DH; but he was sure the dialysis would go smoothly, so I went to the 24 Hour Fitness to swim as planned. I was walking in when I got called back to the Dialysis Center.

As we drove home, I was reeling from yet another twist on the roller coaster ride we've been on lately... but somehow, a little bud of an idea came to mind: why don't I go swimming anyway? While DH visited with his Mom and aunt,
I went to a pool near home and had a GREAT workout!

Catching up on laundry while I'm Sparking, so I better stay on task and go answer the dryer's buzzer... Busy day tomorrow ~ Wish me luck!

It's my last night in Colorado. Today I completely indulged myself: slept and played with grandpuppy Zoe while waiting for DD from work; then DD & I (and Zoe) went for a walk and got ice cream, and spent a long evening cuddled on the couch watching Classic Movies. I sent DD to bed early (midnight) for private time with SIL, and set to working online. They aren't working Wednesday, so the three of us will have most of the day together.
I fly home - and back to Reality - late in the afternoon.

Elizabeth . Enjoy family time grieve together but remember the good times too and look forward.
Today our eldest son arrives to spend a few days with us. He lives in Ireland so we do not meet up often. Unfortunately I am still unwell with bronchial problem, not sleeping much and coughing a lot. Not an ideal time for a house guest . But I shall pretty myself up and put a happy face on to greet him.

I'm safely in Colorado. Today is the 5th Anniversary of my son Scott's sudden and unexpected death... SO glad to be with DD! We spent a chunk of time looking at photographs and keepsakes, and sharing memories. I've cried to much the last few weeks, reaching this milestone is almost a relief.

On Sunday, March 3rd, DD & SIL, and me too, arre doing a St Baldrick's childhood cancer fundraiser here in memory of Scott. My thoughts are all looking forward now, as I get more and more excited to honor him that day! Sorry - gotta go... Altitude sickness is kicking my butt, so I gotta lay down.

Take care and God Bless, Elizabeth ~ emoticon

This weekend has been excitement mixed with anxiety and anticipation; but, even though I have every excuse to "treat" myself, have a "splurge" or binge eat until my eyes bug out, I'm staying solidly on track food-wise, AND I'm steadily getting needed tasks done before my trip to Colorado to visit my
DD & SIL... which, by the way, starts in less than 30 hours!!! emoticon emoticon

I've been weighing in almost every week, but keep my expectations level.
I don't know if that's the right word; what I mean is, even though I have been losing, I don't let the numbers dictate how I feel. However, it's time to face officially recording the results: the next 5% Challenge ("Winter to Spring") starts next Saturday, February 23rd.

While HAVING to weigh in, and having that focus on the number on the scale, is my least favorite part of the Challenges, the positive aspects are well worth it. The timing is either going to be really good or really bad, depending how it goes... I'm flying to Colorado that next Tuesday (February 26th), and staying with DD and SIL for nine days!

DD is an avid baker, but they live three flights up... Hopefully they'll balance!
I'm not taking my wheelchair, only my walker, which I should use a lot. They have a good computer system, so I'll be able to Spark every day. We're also hitting the grocery store on the first day, so I can buy groceries for the basic food plan I worked out for when I'm alone.

I know the time will pass quickly, no matter what we do. DD & SIL aren't taking time off work - I wouldn't want them to - but I'll see them a lot when they aren't working. We have some plans, like taking the short drive up into the Rocky Mountains. I also want to check out the real estate there (would you believe 4Bed-3Bath-Garage-Basement homes for about $150K?!).

Mainly, however, this trip is about getting AWAY from the stressful situation here at home, and to BE WITH my beloved daughter! We're also doing their city's St Baldrick's event together, so I'll be coming home B-A-L-D... Yeah, DH still doesn't believe me... so in just one week, I'll be packing my last items and getting ready for the drive to LAX!

Compared to all that, the scale doesn't bother me at all! emoticon emoticon

Ree - Best wishes to you and your dear husband! I don't know if you know,
but my DH moved out in January, and is now living full-time with his Mom to care for her. We thought it would be a temporary situation - meaning several months or so - but I think it's going to be permanent.

There's no official diagnosis of dementia, but her behavior leans that way, and she seems to be deteriorating quickly. DH is taking her to her doctor regularly, and he knows that is what we suspect is happening, so I guess time will tell.
The hardest part of all this for me is seeing the toll it takes on my DH. emoticon
He's such a sweetheart - I'm doing my best to be completely supportive!


Welcome back, Vicki ~ I think the key is to simply be kind to ourselves; make small changes gradually, and don't worry over daily ups and downs.
You can do it! emoticon

I decided today to step back from the scale for the next 6 months. I want to see what I can accomplish in that time frame without being focused on the numbers on the scale. In the past I've said no more scales EVER and all that did was screw with my head. This time, I'm just setting a time limit and see how that works out for me. This way I can concentrate on being healthy, not worrying about the yo-yo-ing my body goes thru on a day to day basis. And I feel pretty good about making this commitment and can't wait to see what progress I make both in fitness, and in my over all health and spirit. emoticon

... even though I woke up with a bad migraine, and was still tired because

I slept fitfully, I seized on an impulse and pushed myself all the way through...

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

... and went to LA Fitness to swim and work out in the pool for over an hour,
followed by walking (with my walker) while I waited for my ride home. emoticon

Those positive feelings followed me all day, through the long evening alone,

TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY... emoticon

I pushed myself to do more than I have in awhile... and while it was a struggle,
I finished the most important goals I set for myself today. I wanted to do a few much-needed errands for myself, and today was my last chance before the most important sales ended.

DH brought the car over, and we actually got to do a few quick ones together.
I drove him back to his Mom's, and stayed awhile to visit; and then I did what
I had planned. Oh, and I impulsively told DH I wanted to keep the car overnight and go out again tomorrow!

I may be aching all over, but feeling so satisfied is the best balm!!! emoticon

Almost went over the cliff, but... pulled up right at the edge.

Even though I came VERY, VERY CLOSE... I DIDN'T give up. emoticon

Finally stopped binge eating as of yesterday; entered all the food on my tracker, and journaled last night to work through the extreme emotions driving this crash; made a food plan for today, AND FOLLOWED IT. Time to treat myself right... and to convince myself I deserve it!

So that's ONE in a row... emoticon emoticon

This was a quieter week - not that easy, but less of a roller coaster -
after a really horrendous, unexpected weekend...

Long story short, after all the talk of "family meetings" and open communi- cation and working together, DH's stepfather's family moved him out with NO warning Saturday night. Then they came back on Sunday "for some clothes," but started going through all the shelves (et al) picking out "HIS" belongings.

WHEW! Even typing that gets me angry again... emoticon emoticon emoticon

This week was quieter only because they backed off (until today). However, it's a LOT more difficult with my MIL. She's lost all sense of time, and is even more confused overall. My poor DH is really struggling trying to care for her. It's very frustrating, of course, and equally upsetting, because this is his Mom.

This weekend we tackle working out the "property" issues. Looks like I'll be the mediator, because DH is still so angry, he can't even look at his stepbrother, let alone try to talk with him. And right in the middle, MIL keeps asking why her DH left her and when is he coming back... over and over and over and over.

WISH ME STRENGTH (AND LUCK)! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Tomorrow, DH, his DD and I are going to the USC Transplant Center in Los Angeles for DH's first evaluation there in hopes of his qualifying to receive a kidney... STRESS, STRESS & MORE STRESS. I just realized, I've got to think beyond just getting out the door in the morning with the necessary paperwork; we'll be gone all day, so I need to create a food plan. emoticon emoticon

Hi team. I am getting back on track this week . I had a few things on my mind so as usual I was picking at food without much thought
Today starts a new week so I hope to sort things out in my mind. My husband us having a brain scan this afternoon. Though I am concerned I am not turning to comfort eating. I need to stay well. Will let you know later how things are. Ido not expect to learn much today ,it's just one step. Best wishes for 2013

I didn't realize how very depressed my DH is about Christmas, meaning the holidays in general. I think it's because his Mom isn't doing well. She's been sick with GI issues, but it's her mental state that's become a real concern.

When I asked DH if we should ask her doctor to have her evaluated, he could only sadly, very sadly, agree. That was when I finally realized why he's been more and more down - like rejecting every idea I had for Christmas gifts.

Christmas Day begins shortly... and he doesn't even want to go see his DD and the grandkids. I hope I can brighten it for him!


WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL & HAPPY CHRISTMAS!!! emoticon

Chinese food... it's in the fridge for tomorrow's Lunch, and I'm REALLY looking forward to it! We were to have it today for a late Lunch, when DH picked it up on the way home from his doctor's appointment; but the doctor sent him for tests (first to an imaging center, then to the hospital), so he came home hours later than expected.

Kaile and I had already eaten Lunch by then. She was hungry enough to eat her take-out for Dinner - well, I was too - but I knew I had eaten a large Lunch, so I ate a very light Dinner instead. Sure enough, when Kaile went to sleep, and I got on Spark and entered my food for today, my light Dinner filled my nutrition ranges perfectly!

I AM getting hungry again, for which I'll drink something non-caloric and go to bed... and I better get moving, so I can stick to my plan!

Have a emoticon Friday! Take care, Elizabeth ~ emoticon

GD Kaile is on Winter Break now; normally we would have her every day, but her Mom took this week off. Luckily, she has some meetings to attend, so Kaile comes to stay with us while her Mom is working. Today was Day One, and it was exactly as expected...

When she's here, it's easy to eat healthy; plus, there's lots of play and activity, and a good tickle fight too! I took her to pick out two DVDs; that's always good for an extra long cuddle and lots of laughter. Kaile is arriving very early tomorrow, so early bed tonight.

Also, in keeping with the SparkCoach daily challenge, we'll go outside for some extra activity. DH has a doctor's appointment in another town, and
I need to be there, so I'm figuring out what extra stuff we can do while we're there... my mood is up, up, UP!!!

Hope you're having a good week too ~ emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks for thinking of me... The TCF conference was very helpful, and has had a lasting positive effect. I definitely gained insight into why it seemed harder and harder to deal with my grief, and find my footing in every day life. Now that the holidays are here, expected emotions are smacking me around again, but this year IS different.

I feel stronger - actually better for real, not just what people see from the outside when they say, "you're so strong." This greater peace of mind comes from me admitting - and accepting - some deeply selfish feelings, over which
I had felt a lot of guilt. It also became unimportant whether other people would understand my feelings.

Thanksgiving went fairly well - not due to events, but because of my different reactions to them - so now it'll be Christmas, which will be the big test.


Here's what's going on tonight - I say "tonight," though sunrise is soon:

I just left DH at the hospital, after taking him to the ER a few hours ago with a high fever and severe pain. He was admitted with Peritonitis (an infection in the lining of the abdomen), a common complication of Peritoneal Dialysis. His fever spiked very quickly, so I knew I had to get him to the ER immediately.

If all goes well, DH will probably be home in a few days. One good thing about living in the urban jungle of Los Angeles is the close proximity of medical care. The hospital is less than two miles away from home, and just a few blocks away from both his DD and Mom. I'll be able to easily go back and forth.

I called my SD after DH was admitted, even though it was 1am. It's never good to receive a call at that hour; but I had promised I'd keep her informed, AND that I'd be honest about her Dad's condition. Even better, DH asked me to call her then, so he's opening up and more willing to communicate.

I'll go back to the hospital in the morning, but will have to make several calls first, like canceling my day out with my friend, and to inform the Dialysis Center. Plus, DH asked me to go to his Mom's and tell her in person; she's already worries about him constantly, and this will be even more upsetting.

That means I gotta close it down and GO TO SLEEP... G' Night ~ emoticon

Elizabeth ! I can not for one moment put myself in your shoes! But I do recall last year you went through all the same emotions of doubts, panics and fears.
You went though and yes it was emotional but you were glad you went,
What would your in want you to do? Think of that and yourself too, then make up your mind, neither way to go or not go is the right was for everyone, sorry not putting it well but you know we care and understand and want you to do what's best for you, emoticon

I'm supposed to go to the TCF ("The Compassionate Friends") International Conference this weekend; actually Friday and Saturday, from 8am to 11pm each day. Not only will the schedule be exhausting, but I'm scared of the emotions involved. Right now, in fact, I am having a major panic attack...
I literally can't breathe!

TCF is a grieving support organization specifically for parents who have lost a child (along with siblings and grandparents). I've put off making the final arrangements for the conference. I've been saying I'm going, but didn't register in advance. (There's walk-in registration, so that doesn't have to stop me.)

I KNOW the workshops at the Conference may be the only way to get the help
I think I need. I believe I'm completely stuck in my grieving for Scott. Part of me says, "it's not possible for me to cope or feel any better then I do now"; but what if it IS? I'm not the same person I was before, but don't expect to be...
There's no more time to debate: I need to be there in 9 hours!emoticon

Here's a "quick" catch-up from me:

I have two busy weeks coming up; next week, GD Kaile will be staying with us while her Mom is out of town. We have a lot of plans, which will keep me active (well, more active than usual); and since I want to be a good role model, her being here motivates me to pump up the freggies and back off the sugary temptations.

So far this week I’ve been working my legs and arms and entire body above and beyond what’s “normal.” First, DH & I are taking Kaile - just the three of us - to Las Vegas for a few days! We leave tomorrow morning; besides packing for the trip, I try to leave the house as clean as possible, so I’m working on those tasks too.

Second, DH’s dialysis supplies will be delivered early tomorrow. I have to prepare the “storage space,” otherwise known as our former dining room. As my cleaning and organizing serves both purposes, that will save me a LOT of effort. (DH’s reserves total about 32 boxes, and the delivery is 34 boxes, so it’ll be a squeeze…)

I am SO worn out and sore and tired, but I’m LOVING it! It takes me awhile to get used to being disgustingly sweaty; but once I break through that barrier, I can “up” my intensity level and lengthen my time. I’m also extra motivated because we’ve been planning this trip to Vegas with GD Kaile since last August!

The clock is ticking away, so I gotta go… if I don’t get enough rest BEFORE we leave, I’ll sleep right through our mini-vacation! I should have internet access while there – I just don’t know how much time I’ll have to check in on Spark, other than tracking my food. (I even weigh/measure and record what I eat at the buffets.)

DH took a turn for the worse over the weekend – the deep cough lingering after his pneumonia suddenly got much worse, and he went into Urgent Care first thing Monday morning. The bad news is, the pneumonia is back; the good news is, he’s back on antibiotics and should be feeling better SOON… Those Vegas lights should help too!

Take care & have fun! emoticonemoticonemoticon

A Sunday review of the past week shows me where changes have to be made More in my own attitude than anything,I am still too reliant on what the scale shows and become all down hearted. I should be looking at what I have achieved so farl.
I will have a full house today, 6 for lunnch so I cant do much extra today. But starting tomorrow I am plan on having a shake up on food, exercise and my own attitude. Wish me luck please. Ireneemoticon

Hi Friends
A catch up on Saturday September now. Where did summer go to?So many in my teams are regarding September as a fresh start .Making resolutions, being prepared more taking on challenges. I do feel more positive but have to accept any changes in weight with me is sooooo slow. But generally going down gradually

Work burns up calories too and has something positve to show at the end, Its very satisfying I think to see progress in a job done well.
I hope all our team members are doing well. Why not drop in on here and tell us?emoticon

Hello dear Ladies! Thank you for your sympathy and well-wishes ~ I wish I knew how SD was really doing, but all I hear is "fine." I haven't had any private time with her, but DH has visited several times. I'm sure he's a great comfort and support to her. I've miscarried twice, but don't feel that I'm in a position to share that with SD and her grief. She is very close to her mother, who gets jealous and "not nice" sometimes - after all, I'm just the Stepmom - so I keep my distance at times.

Ree, I sure can relate to those gloomy moody days... I hope your day dawns bright and positive on Friday! Putting the scale away... I've gone without weighing in for a long time, but it was more that I was off-track and didn't want to know the damage, so to speak. I'll try to figure out a better answer and post later.

Hannah, HAPPY (BELATED) BIRTHDAY!!! I'm SO glad you had a great day... and there are definitely more to come!

Well, it seems like my Spark time gets shorter and shorter, and later and later... here's a post to share about my day, or "How I Started September":

Even though GS & I got off to a slow start, I worked my butt off today and tonight. Finally I can see a light at the end of this long tunnel... of getting our kitchen done! All but two cabinets and one set of shelves are emptied, cleaned, sorted, thinned out, and organized.

The first task for today was for DH & GS to deliver six boxes of kitchen items to our designated charity, emptying out space in the living room to work. Now I have three more boxes ready to be delivered, and I'm already thinking of stuff from other rooms for us to donate!

My project for tomorrow - well, maybe tomorrow, maybe the weekend - is to hand wash more of the dusty pots and pans and other items we pulled from the cabinets today. (I've washed about half so far.) I'm really excited now, despite being sweaty, smelly and tired.

Once we get the cabinet of dishes and glassware emptied - the other is food, which I'll do later with the pantry - oh, and that set of shelves in the dining area, I'll be glad to get THAT big mess in order - it will be time to RESTOCK THE SHELVES.

Seeing all those empty cabinets... WOW, it feels GREAT! It's like we're moving in again... getting a second chance - to do it right this time. Well,
my hot shower awaits, so I'm gonna finish up and get to bed. GS is staying overnight, so we're just kicking back for now...
I hope you're having as productive and satisfying a time as I am! emoticon
