Went out for breakfast with friends/coworkers this morning. I debated bringing my walker, but managed without. I keep it on hand downstairs - being without the pain med really slows me down. Not much longer for hip replacement! emoticon

Wow! A check for staying healthy! One of the insurance companies did that here several years ago. There is an added bonus in that you have stayed healthy this past year! Good for you, Shel.

Tomorrow I have to take my DD and grandson to get him tested - she has good reason to believe he has autism spectrum disorder (thankful he's HIGH FUNCTIONING, but with documentation he can get more support.) Oh, well, I have to make a deposit anyway - my Healthy Rewards check from Excellus! emoticon

It is very difficult; as we get older we have to adjust our physical activity. I am trying acupuncture and physical therapy, both have helped with improving mobility. But of course I still have arthritis. I just want to stay active for as long as possible! Jane, glad you got the breathing machine and are staying active. Let's all just keep staying as healthy as we can!

It's a cold day today! But we're not getting the heavy snow that they're getting in other places. Still, I avoid going out unless absolutely necessary, like for appointments.

I was thinking, I probably won't travel to Peru this year (hoping rather to bring my fiancι up) BUT - maybe, just maybe, this summer I can make a little trip to Ohio to see my OTHER 2 grandkids - one of whom I never met! Maybe by bus or train. It's about an 8 hour drive. Then there's overhead of hotel. At least when I go to Peru I don't have that!

I turned 70 in September and my health seems to have gone south. Hopefully getting the machine to help me breath better will help in all areas. Also, getting my neck, shoulder and arm to stop hurting would be nice.

Yeah, Jane, it's frustrating not to be able to do things like I used to. Nowadays it's the issue of exercise, and my weight is still up from Christmas. I just can't do the cardio like I used to, although I do take advantage of Spark's seated routines. I hope after hip replacement I'll be able to Sweat to the Oldies with Richard Simmons again.

I have been AWOL from this team without even realizing it. Shel, I hope the surgery goes well. Sometimes we just have to realize our bodies are not as spright as they use to be. I have been hit with that since I turned 70 in September.

At least I am not cold...

I get excited when it's 20 or more. Ever get one of those BIG bonus points, like 100? Silly, isn't it? Like the points on Whose Line Is It Anyway?

Shel, district policy is that we don't close until it is 50 below or worse when the wind chill is included. It was only 44 below that day, so off to school we went. Living in the far Northern reaches of Minnesota, we have to be careful with our school closures or we would be in school through July.

Tiff, I work in a school district where the superintendent rarely closes school even though temps drop to 20 below. But my DD will keep the kids home if she thinks it's too cold to expose them however briefly. And she sent the supt. an email to give her a piece of her mind! Shel

Mamisheli53, so glad you are taking your daughter's advice, it sounds as though it is necessary! TiffA409, BRRRR! And it is great that you are working on endurance so you can keep up with the high school kids on the trip.

I hope everyone is staying warm, we are finally over the freezing fog and it is warmer and sunnier.

My daughter convinced me to go for disability NOW, not wait until surgery. After all, it's no good being on the point of tears going in to work, and while I appreciate my coworkers' solicitousness, they should be able to focus on our kids, not on ME. So, I'll be getting the papers to fill out for disability (about /2 my regular pay) to kick in after I use up my remaining, what, 10 or so sick days. Meanwhile, today I did three of Spark's seated workouts. I can't just sit and veg! I need to keep the muscles toned as much as possible and keep the weight off if not lower. So, I should be Sparking more. Shel

So cold out! Burr! -19 when I woke up but with the wind they say it felt like -45. Still no school delay or cancellation, so off to work I went.

It is a far way off, but my next vacation has me working on my endurance. I (and a few other adults) will be taking about 30 high schoolers to the Mediterranean Coast this June. 11 days spent in Italy, France, and Spain. I am so excited. But also cautious. I know we will be doing LOTS of walking and if I were a bit lighter, it would be a bit easier! So, long story short, I am working on increasing my distance and decreasing my waist line emoticon

FYI only:

Now is the time to mail and receive packages from your loved ones. I work for a police department and I am getting lots of reports about how the packages been delivered and then they're gone.

If you are mailing packages, PLEASE get their work, neighbor's address or make sure someone will be home. If receiving, tell your trusted neighbor or give them your work address, or make sure you're home. There are idiots (being nice here) who are following, yes, FOLLOWING, the mail trucks, UPS and FEDEX trucks. After the package(s) are delivered and when it's safe to do so, the idiots will run up and steal them.

I'm just letting you all know because I care and I don't want to this to happen to you.

Annemargar, that is indeed a good idea - It's great to know some basics of the language of the place you travel to. At LEAST to know where the potty is! emoticon Shel

Annemargar, what a great idea! let us know how the Rosetta Stone for Swedish works. (I tried a couple of Turkish lessons on tape before traveling to Turkey -- it wasn't easy!)

Jane, sorry you were sick for the holiday.

It sounds like everyone had a nice time!

We used air B and B. To stay in Rome for three days. We had a lovely apartment with a hugh living room dining room kitchen two washrooms a loft bedroom with big walkin closet and when you looked out the window you had a view of the coliseum. For way less than a hotel. Loved it.

Family is always open to having us stay with them, but because there are so many of us - we have to spread out among several houses. This makes it difficult for us to get going in the morning. We are looking into Air BnB, where you rent someones home. That way, we can all stay together, be close to our extended family, but not be in their way and the cost for the stay is very reasonable.

Has anyone used Air Bnb?

I am with Shel, I use my cell phone here on Guam for emergencies and for people to contact me if I am away from home. I seldom hear it when at home. When off island I have a track phone that I use to confirm who is picking me up and other things like that so it is used more. Because I will chat on it some. I make sure I have enough minutes to start off when I leave island and enough days on the phone to last me until my next trip stateside. Phone calls to and from Guam were about $3.00 a minute when I came here years ago. Then for several years I could make calls for 3 to 4 cents per minute. Now I must pay over 10 cents a minute. One of my friends would call me quite often until she changed carriers and now we connect on FaceBook. What a bummer.

I have purse sized calendars too. I like them.
I like my little cell phone but it's basic. And that's how I want it. I don't like talking on the phone except to my fiancι; any other calls are necessity based.
Temps are dropping here - hauled out the winter coat!

I had lunch today with a group that one is Filipino, another born in England before WWII and evacuated to the country for the duration, another from South America and another for cold Minnesota where her twin lives. I introduced them to Chinese Broccoli at a Chinese restaurant.

Since joining SP really strive to eat lots of fruit and vegetables and find I am doing the same with others.

Thanks Jane. I. Picked up a cold from the plane and am having a rough time with the time change. Anyone have some good hints. I went to bed early because of the cold but then I'm up at 2 am. Rolled over and stayed in bed till 6.

We haven't got any more travel booked at this moment but my firgers are crossed for a transatlantic cruise.

At this point I am so glad I am retired. I would not have the energy to keep up with a class of 18 - 20 five year olds.
