Patti, I went through what you are going through before my DH passed away 4 years ago. It is so hard if you have no one to help. Take advantage of every time that you can get out. You need "me" time. If you need someone to talk to we are here for you.

I will go to church this morning. Don't have anything planned for this afternoon.

Hope everyone have a good day. This group used to be so active. Where is everyone?

My husband's sister, her husband and young son (adopted) came to visit last night clear from Indiana. He had told me about a month ago that he would like to go to see his two sisters, then realized he'd not be able to make the trip.

I'm hoping he can have a Skype session with his older sister. She's too disabled to travel.

Today his son came to watch a movie with his dad. DH fell asleep.

It was a chance for me to go get groceries while his son was here. I'm not leaving him alone anymore. I'm hoping to still get my exercise most days. It's going to have to take creativity!

Marsha... I had not heard about a SS raise. I think last year we did not get a raise because gas prices were lower. I don't think most senior citizens spend a lot of money on gas. Did not make sense to me. Getting a raise will be nice.

We had major storm warnings last night & early this morning so I stayed up just in case I needed to head for my bathtub. I have no basement & my closets are on side of house that has 2 big trees. Storm passed over are area but other places had 70 mph winds.

Where are the rest of the Over 70's?

Thanks Karen, and I am the same way. Not ashamed to say it but I love looking at thrift stores, and we have a super Goodwill close by. When you live on SS you have to watch your pennies to keep up the house, food on the table, etc. I don't like going to malls anymore. When DH was living we used to go, but after he died I lost interest and besides my ankles won't take the walking.
Oh, BTW did you hear we are getting a raise in SS in 2017? I will take what ever they give me, last year we didn't get any.

I go to get hair done this morning, and then if not too wiped out I want to go to Publix for a few groceries.

Hello to all, where is everyone? I was in this group before and we had quite a few people posting. If you are ready, come out of the woodwork and let us know how you are doing. God loves you, and so do we.

Patty, How nice to get some new things. I never buy at retail stores. always get great things at Consignment or Goodwill stores.

I am sorting my summer clothes & trying to part with some things that are too big, too worn or not tumble dry. I have way too much.

Enjoy your new hairdo Marsha.

Patti, don't you love getting some new to you clothes? I do, I am not proud. I go throught my closet and give to the church for our food bank, they have a clothes closet for them also.

Have a good night's rest. Get hair done in the morning and if I feel like it I will go to Publix to get some groceries.

Hot here today, and supposed to be the same tomorrow, no rain to cool things off.

Gorgeous day here, too. I went to one of my craft buddy's homes today and she pulled out a big bag of clothes. Since she has lost weight, clothes seem too loose on her. I ended up with a fantastic new wardrobe.

We sure did have great weather for our picnic. I watched the kids swim & the breeze under the trees was a great feeling. I know i stay inside too much. I am still planning an extended family picnic/reunion for later in the summer. I can rent a picnic area with a covering but not enclosed for just $25.00 so need to check it out & pay to reserve it.

Severe storms a possibility for today. Hope you are all enjoying the summer days. I hope Florida days are not too hot Marsha

Summer is starting off hot in Ohio. 90 degrees today & possible storms later. I am working on getting a family reunion/picnic started. My place is too small so it will be at a park.

Hi Karen, I find that if I can do something for someone else instead of focusing on myself, it brings me out of the doldrums. Exercise helps so very much on a regular basis to keep me from getting there in the first place.

Yes, I'm focusing on self-care. Right now my husband is sleeping mornings, and so I can go to my 7 am Personal Trining sessions on Monday and Wednesday. Today I also had to take some of his packages to the Post Office which is close to the gym. When I got hoe, I helped him with his morning meds and eye drops...and just stayed with him until noon. Then he was ready to sleep some more. Had a great talk with two of my friends and one of my local Sparkers.

Good morning to all.

Patti, I am so glad that your mind is more at ease.

Being a caregiver was the hardest job I ever had, but a
very rewarding one. Take care of yourself. We were married 62 years when he passed away.

Yes, read the books, and they furnish so many things, if there is something to make your job easier, ask for it.

Prayers,
Marsha

Yes, the intake nurse and the social worker came today and they gave us a notebook. I've started reading the material. THe nurse prescried some medications for the current problems which i was able to pick up at the local pharmacy for free. They will come twice a week to bathe him. I'm so glad to have them to help.

Patti, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Hospice was called in on my DH 4 years ago, and I have nothing put good to say about them. Such great, caring people and there for you for any questions. Be sure to go over the booklet (notebook) if they give you one as a lot of information. They were here and days he was scheduled for bath, they would tell me to get out and take some time for myself. Said I will be here an hour and you take an hour. Don't seem like a lot of time, but it did help. Then he went on 24 hour Hospice, never a dime was paid out of my pocket. I got more information from them than his doctor.

Keep us posted and know your time will be limited;
Any questions please ask.

My husband had a pulmonary doctor visit today. They agreed it is time for my DH to do hospice. I am glad I will have help. The doctor said we would probably have someone visit from the team tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.

A friend gave me 10 strawberry plants. I have a bed of them right outside my front door, but there are some bald spots. So, I filled them in today. Weather was perfect...some sun without being too hot.

I am trying to get my tomatoes planted today. So far I have 10 in the ground and 9 more waiting until I rest a while. They were getting too big in my greenhouse and it will be easier to have them out in the garden. I still have lots more to plant but I need to make sure I don't over do it.

Finally...I've solved the technical problems between SmartPhone, old computer, email, and new computer with Windows 10 to be able to show all of you the results of the Draping & Drafting course I took. It's in my blog for today with pictures. It's really been a learning experience, and one I'll have to use for anything I sew for myself (or others with the technique).

Check it out! More to come when I get the final blouse finished. I can hardly wait; it looks so beautiful in my mind.

I don't drive very far. Actually I stay in the County. Actually, I mostly use the car to visit in the Rest Home and shopping and Church. All about 5 min. from home.

I have never changed a tire & don't think I can learn to do it. I have AAA & will gladly pay the fee to get my roadside assistance. Daddy was a mechanic so I did not learn those things. Darn!

Glad you got your tire fixed.

Yes, I can change a tire, and I HAVE done it. The hardest part for me is getting the lugs off--someone stronger than I has screwed them on. Today I wasn't in the mood though. I called Roadside Assistance and waited at my friend's house until he came. With a rental car and no jack, it was a much better way to go.

The best layed plans...huh? Can you change your own tire? Our mechanic has offered sessions in simple mechanics. I asked if he could teach an old dog new tricks?

Today didn't turn out as I planned AT ALL! I'm so glad I did my exercise early in the morning. I thought I'd be visiting with my friend (she lives about 20 miles away) and then I'd have the afternoon to relax, make phone calls, and do crafting.

As I drove to my friend's house, the AIR PRESSURE LOW message came on. I stopped at a gas station and paid for air (always irks me a bit) and inflated all four tires. By looking at them, I figured the driver's front tire was lowest and the gauge proved that, but it did inflate so I went on to my friend's house,

When I was ready to leave...you guessed it...flat tire, Big nail in it. So, the afternoon was spent getting it changed and then fixed.

Gorgeous sunny day here in Western Washington. My daughter PURPLESWIMMER, her boyfriend, and I walked the CROP Walk in Olympia today. It is 10K (6.2 miles) and we got donations from friends to help Church World Service "end hunger". One man from our local running team showed up, too, and we represented Club Oly with a banner and everything.

I love the atmosphere at the beginning of races and this walk today was somewhat like that...but different since these were ordinary people who cared and no runners. Since I walk even the 10K races, it was nice to be in the middle of the pack instead of the end.

Hi everyone. I haven't posted here for a while - been over at the caregiver's forum but when I got 50 points for the team I just had to post it! I love the beginning of a month and May in South Africa, particularly in KwaZulu-Natal is the most delicious month - cool and clear and gearing up for the mild winter. I always want to plant things at this time of the year which is quite wrong but there are no doubt some vegetables that enjoy cooler weather. I just need to remember to water them as it is our dry season.

Let us not forget to be kind.

I was ABSOLUTELY AMAZED at the number of people in our Team who got over 2000 SparkPoints or exercised over 1000 minutes this month. And we checked a few days before the month was over. CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU!!!

We were done in a day and a half. The defense didn't call any witnesses. The lawyer for the defendant gave us some weird reasoning that the defendant may not have been the person who signed his name to a document. It didn't take us long to get concensus.

I was very impressed with the judge and the process. It was made very clear that if we didn't want to serve we didn't have to. After everything was over, the judge and the lawyers for both sides came to talk to us and answer any questions we had. All in all, I felt very respected and thanked for my service.
