Why don't you just let your DH do it instead of being his servant? My sister did not wait on my bil that had prostate and bone cancer, diabetes, etc. He called her cell phone once when we were out Xmas shopping and told her to come home to make him snack because he was diabetic and needed to eat. She said you aren't an invalid. Go to the kitchen, eat some nuts, cheese, etc. and I will be home to make dinner. Their son who is cancer specialist told his dad the same thing. His doctor son would not even give him a handicapped placard.

Your doctor is right about not doing scan routinely after a year. I read they along with xrays, MRIs, etc can cause more harm than good if done often.

Maybe, you aren't going to the right doctor. It is great that your doctor runs tests, but they may not be the tests you need to determine what is going on with you. I don't know how old you are Sue, but have you had your hormones checked? Thyroid, cortisol, renin and aldosterone checked. Have you seen an ear, nose and throat doctor? You seem to be suffering from many symptoms I do because of thyroid, Addison and allergies.

I had swollen glands for a week that disappeared out of blue. Sick to my stomach to the point where I can't eat or vomited. I had runs for week and lost 7 lbs. Hoarseness is common symptoms of low thyroid. BTW, smoking screws up hormones and causes thyroid disease. Smoking speeds up metabolism/thyroid. Cigs also contain sugar and mess with glucose. Quitting allows hormones, metabolism, glucose, etc to return to normal.

My GP, thyroid, rheumy, etc. run tests when I do not feel well, which turn out normal. Then, I go to ENT, he looks up my nose and down throat with lighted tube, said I had terrible allergies, treats me and symptoms resolved. That is what I mean by not doing the correct tests.

Our brain tends to think we have what we were diagnosed with when we feel ill, but that is rarely the case. I suggest you get other things checked out to rule out another cause.

My leg felt great after classes, ached last night and today.

Once the doctors realize that we know are bodies better than they do! They will begin to pay attention to what we have to say. Until than we need to keep needling them. Sometimes they do deserve it!

How's work?

Michele, maybe he doesn't feel like he can do it, then decides to try afterall? I don't know, just a guess:)
Tee, how are you feeling after those 2 pool classes?

I had my appointment with the oncologist and asked if I could have another PET scan since it's been over a year, and he told me after the last one, that I would have a follow up scan in a year. Well, now he says they don't do them routinely, in a year, they have to have a good reason for it so I reminded him about all the strange things that have happened to me all year. I had headaches everyday for a few months, then they just stopped. My feet were swollen every day for months, then overnight the swelling went down. I vomited all the time for months, then that stopped. Now I have the runs 3 or 4 times a week for the past few weeks, oh yeah, I was hoarse for months then that just cleared up one day, and my lymph glands in my throat were swollen. There is more, but I can't remember it all. I told him I feel like a hypochondriach but my symptoms have all been real, and he did check me each time and order this test or that test, and everything seemed fine. After that he said he wanted me to go have a chest xray, and come back in 2 months, but the receptionist said call in a couple of days, and ask about the results if no one calls me.

He said my emphysema didn't look any worse on the CT scan, but I have an awful lot scar tissue from the radiation. I guess that could be a lot of my problems. I don't know...Sorry, to go on about this, is just so frustrating! They say one thing, then change it later.

Right Snuzie, on a new chance for changes. Have you heard anything from Sandi lately? It's been a few months for me. How is work going?

Tee.. how is the pain since you have had a few water classes under your belt? It was the last of September when I broke my ankle and the weather was getting cooler but, the 4 weeks of those classes did a great job strengthening and healing that break. However, I'm still not climbing a rock climb as yet. emoticon

Netsue, how is your day going?

Stressful day for me, I'm listening to loud country music from the living room, TV in computer room acting up. I'm getting...get me this one minute and the next DH's doing it for himself. Just doesn't figure anymore.

Enjoy the rest of this day!

Welcome back Netsue! I do remember you and glad you're back!
Tee, good job on the two pool classes!
Michele, yes, this is a new month and a new start to reach our goals! I can't believe it is October already! Time is just flying by!
I have an appointment this morning with my oncologist and hope he will schedule me for another PET scan. It has been over a year now since my last one. I have had so many weird health problems since going through treatment, hopefully it's just residual effects from the chemo:)

I attended a lot of seminars on wills, trusts, power of attorney, etc. and just learned via finance article that if my pension beneficiaries differ from will, what is stated in will does not cover pension.

I attended two pool classes yesterday. Zumba and aerobics. Aerobics was all core, difficult and what I need. I had to take bigger size in jeans because of my mid section.

Let's make this a breathe better October!

Hi guys! You probably don't remember me but I'm back. I'm going to try this quit thing again. It's scary but it'll be worth it when I do it. I'll keep you posted when I get closer to the date, but I'm committed now because I've ordered the meds and stuff!

Speaking of Legal ..... we have both been talking about Power of Attorney for the both of us as well as up dating our Wills. So guess you could say.. next on the agenda. Plan for today is to get a few things down that did not get done the last three days. An the way this morning has started off...not to sure they will.

This is the last day of September so got to make the best of it. Midnight completes another month of a Quit or another month of attempting and talking about starting a Quit. May October be your start of a Forever Quit!

You were athletic Michele. Love the part about your dad and grandpa hogging the radio and tv. Equestrian is expensive sport. I am glad you and your princess love it. I lived in horse area when I moved to Ca and neighbors kids were equestrians. Friend's hubby said it cost him more to shoe their horse than the entire family.

My dad and uncles watched Friday night fights, but not sports. My dad's sister married man that loved baseball. He would only come to our house before game started, watch game by himself on our tv and ate in between innings. lol

I was surrounded by boys and learned archery, hunting and horseback riding, swimming, etc. and played cards with the adults instead of listening to radio or watching tv.

Thanks! I did have a great time! When I got there, I could barely breathe walking in the sand on the beach, but once I did it a couple of times, I was able to play on the beach and even go hiking, twice! We hiked up a steep hill to a little cemetery at the top and looked at all the headstones. The oldest one I saw was 1853, exactly 100 years older than I am! I took pictures the next morning when we hiked up there a second time and posted them in a blog. We had such a good time and the travel trailer made it so nice! My lungs improved overnight with all that hiking and walking in the sand! It has re-motivated me to exercise again:)
Speaking of that, I better start right now so I have time before work!
Have a great day!

Actually I watched the Reds and Pirates emoticon since the Bengals had a Bye today, also caught the last of the Rider Cup in emoticon I played sports in high school and in Nurses Training and Bowled as well. All this was developed growing up with a Grandfather and Dad that hogged the radio and TV, so since I could not fight them I joined them. My Summers I spent in Wisconsin with my Mom's brother and became an Equestrian, thats why I was a Proud Grandma when Princess took that up.

The first Summer I joined Spark Princess was around 4-5 and I was having trouble keeping up with her. Playing with her at that time was a sport in it's self. Boy did I get the weight down and have been able to keep it all between her and now the great-grandkids. Actually I'm just a kid at Heart.

Enjoy that time with the little ones, its a great learning experience. Michele

I am happy you enjoy sports and get to watch twice a week. I am not sports fan and glad I don't live in your home. I am sure your youngest is fine and home shortly. My son and dil are suppose to go to Mexico. His sister is having a fit because of things going on there and trying to talk them into changing their plans.

I have been wearing flip flops which isn't good for my feet or joints. Wearing sneakers seemed better. So I did some light dancing for 30 minutes and walked in pool for another 30 minutes. Weigh in wasn't as bad as I predicted. I only gained a pound, which I am sure I will lose when I visit grandsons since there is very little in their house.

I would love camping if I could stay in motor home. lol It is impossible for me to get up/down off ground and sleeping bags with bad knees.

There are two shows I want to watch tonight that are on at the same time but different channel. I will probably watch Resurrection that I watched last year since I don't have dvr.

One must remember around here that if it's Thursday or Sunday its emoticon or right now emoticon . Heard from the the oldest she has landed in Kentucky. Have not heard from the youngest as yet, so they have not reached Dayton air as yet. Sure will be glad when they both are home, to much mileage between, just does not count it.

Hope Snuzie enjoyed herself this weekend we all need that time away. Tee perhaps that water will give you the edge you need. It's so much easier walking in water, as well as soothing all the way around.

Enjoy the rest of today and the coming week as well.

Wow! I wish I had your energy and organization. Hope DH enjoyed the donuts. It is great to communicate via cell phone. I just sent birthday wishes to my youngest daughter that turned 37 today since she is working.

I don't even know what I am eating tonight and you have tomorrow planned. A cooking show I watch by Italian used bacon with beans. First time I saw that. Dish looked gummy.

I was going to have steak last night, and ended up cleaning out neighbor that moved storage. The lock combination she gave us did not work. I ended up breaking into the cabinet. She said there were only pictures in cabinet that should be tossed. There was more than that in it. We found lambs, wall hangings, vase, blankets, towels, paint supplies, etc. Neighbor and I started at 7 pm and finished at 9:30 pm. It was too late to cook the steak. So I nuked a Lean Cuisine pasta and shrimp dinner and fell asleep on sofa. I woke at 4 am this morning and went to bed and slept until 10 am. My leg hurts when I try to stand, but not when I stand, walk, etc. I am trying to decided what exercises I should do at gym. I may skip classes and just walk in pool. I have pool arthritis class tomorrow, which I hope will help leg so I can go visit grandsons the end of week. Today is weigh in for Spark weight loss challenge. I am dreading it since I probably gained the weight I lost due to not being able to walk, etc.

I hope game is good and Sue enjoys camping.

Nothing outside the home. Put on my CFO and Chef hats for today. Looking for a simple no thrills Baked donut recipe. DH is craving baked donuts this weekend and the week. Texting with his oldest Son from his work and my girls in Florida at Universal and Disney and my phone is filling up with pics of the Princess and occasionally the rest of the gang. Tonight its emoticon Ohio State vs Cincinnati University or perhaps Ghost Adventures plus finishing my CFO duties.

Tomorrow it's gas up and grocery day. Planning on Cottage ham an Green Beans an Potatoes but forgot to get the bacon to saute the green beans in....got to have the bacon. Just heard on the news that we have no rain in the forecast till next Friday and the Weekend.

Hope Snuzie is having a restful camp-out with her crew. Have a peaceful and pain free Sunday!

Yes, it is only the left leg. I must have done something to it in weightlifting class because pain started afterwards. I know the hip area you spoke of since we stretch that area in arthritis class. I think my pain could be sciatica since icing that area provides some relief and sitting seems to flare it up. I never heard of the shoes you mentioned. My sister and daughters swear by Dansko, which nurses and doctors in my area wear.

The quit is okay due to all the pain medication and sleeping I do. I need to stop taking pain medication bc it is causing me not to wake up, and dangerous with Addison.

What are you doing today? I am going to food shop and help neighbor clean out storage.

Tee your only talking about one leg, right. .............

Back in 1985, with another person I was assisting a patient up in bed. During the lifting the patient grabbed the sides rails which caused me to turn wrong in the lift. That grab caused over two days a swollen left leg with pain in the thigh region which the next day moved into the lower leg with swelling and pain that intensified with pressure on the foot. ... Ended up in the hospital for five days. Seems when the lift was stopped by the grabbed siderails it caused a nerve to loop around a fat tissue in that hip. After numerous injections of that hip to block the pain and physical therapy twice a day it cleared up and I went home. ..... Tests did rule out a blood clot and various other possible vascular problems. Even now if I turn wrong and I can tell just where I received those shots.

Walking shoes and casual shoes that provide comfort for me have been Sk Brands, heels are the thing of the past, as I try not to go over a 3 inch heel....................

How are we coming with our Quits?

DH's son sounds like every parents dream child. I feel bad you have so much on your plate. The chatter always surfaces for me when I take care of ill person, help neighbor pack to move, etc.

We lack control over what happens, need to let go and let God handle. It is important for you to find something that will allow you to sleep. You need to take care of yourself for you to be around for DH.

Leg pain comes and goes throughout day. I shopped for shoes and sneakers to see if new ones would help. It didn't and need to figure out what to do next.

Some problems with my sleep seem to be that I go over the day in my head at least 2 hours before I actually fall asleep. Or I think of those in his family that do not get involved or visit him. His oldest son is the only one of his four children that has anything to do with him either when he was well and even now. Frankly I do not know just what I would do with out him. To me he is the son I never had. Both my girls think highly of him as well. he will let my girls know what's going on with me where I may not. .... I have also had an excellent relationship with my girls but now it is even stronger.

Tee enjoy this weekend and hope that pa emoticon in subsides.

I sympathize with you Michele. Caring for spouse is difficult. Can you get DH children to stay with him so you can get away for a day? Even a mini vacation would help. Sleep is really important since lack of it messes with your hormones (cortisol, etc.), which isn't good. I take Baron ( holistic medication that doctor takes and recommends) that does away with brain chatter that kept me from sleeping bc it does not make person groggy or interact with medications. I bought in Whole Food and Sprout. A bottle is less than $10 and pills look like tictacs that dissolve under tongue.

I had similar feelings when I flew to NY to care for dad with cast on leg after auto accident while my siblings vacationed in Florida. I am scared about turning 65 next month bc my best friend died shortly before that birthday and cousin died immediately after that birthday. There are times when I get symptoms that scare and lead me to think I am not going to make it although heart, etc tests are normal.

I am not getting any more tests since it does not lead to treatment. Rheumy did bunch of tests and said pain is thyroid related, but endo refuses to believe it or change anything. I was paralyzed at one time due to improper thyroid treatment. I took aspirin last night, and the pain subsided. The problem with taking aspirin is I sleep too much, which messes with my Addison.

I hope you have a nice time camping Sue. I love nature, relax and sleep well when camping.

Tee.....Hope the docs can do more testing to find the origin of your problem. Have the docs restricted your activities in any way emoticon

Snuzie ... it's nice when one has a chance to get back to nature. Take that chance and get some restful time away from the pressure and grinding of that busy life of the city.

Me on the other hand, need my time away from here, which now seems an impossible challenge. I'm tired and all too aware of this November 21st, one year since my Heart Attack. The word SLEEP is not in my vocabulary in the past month an a half. Daily, lately I find myself looking for the early signs and symptoms I had before the 21st of November. Believe me a few of those are noticeable now. My girls, Princess and SIL are in Florida enjoying Disney and Universal, and I'm not. It's hard to keep from having Negative thoughts towards DH bc I'm not there. Daily pictures from them are making DH smile and laugh, that's what I'm really after.

Enjoy this coming weekend and remember those not with use.

Tee, I hope your leg pain is better today! That has to be miserable trying to sleep when something hurts doesn't work real well.
Michele, how are you holding up? I know all these problems with your DH's health has to be taking a toll on you too.
Yesterday was something else! I had to write a blog about it, it was so crazy, but I hope today is better!
I am going to go to Fort Bragg tomorrow with oldest son, and stay the night with DD and youngest son at their campground then come back on Sunday. It should be a lot cooler there and will be so much fun!
Have a great Friday everyone!

I had vascular and nerve conduction tests. Nerve test showed problem, but no one knows where it stems or how to relieve it. Frankly, this nerve pain is getting on my nerves. lol Taking Advil and icing worked enough for me to sleep last night, but the pain is back as bad as when it started.. Groan!

My knee does not hurt. The pain is from my calf to ankle. I have seen every doctor and not one could find reason for the pain. I took Advil tonight, pain subsided and hope I will be able to sleep. Good night! emoticon

Sounds like delicious dinner Sue. I am waiting for leg pain to subside so I can cook eggplant before it spoils. I have a Costco roasted chicken I can heat and eat with it.

I am glad there are shows on tv you enjoy watching. I am not into either show and hope there is something on that interests me. .

Drive him nutz since he does that to you. I hope today was better.

I am with you Sue. What is cause of your sleep problem? I hope camping helps you sleep again.

I was up all night with terrible leg pain and going potty. This has been going on since Sunday. I iced leg when I went to bed, potty and woke this morning. The leg should have been frozen, but wasn't. I am icing again now. Leg gives out when I try standing sometimes too. I go thru this stage a few times a year and no doctor has been able to find the cause.

That's great that he was able to finish his plate! Of course, it was biscuits and gravy, how could anyone not finish those? lol ( my favorite food)

I had a pretty good day but I'm having a fantastic evening. My son came over and we just had pork chops, baked potato, and peas, and artichokes, then Survivor the new season is on at 7 and the Big Brother finale is on right after:)

A perfect evening!

Evening,

How did your day go Snuzie..........

Talked with Ono about DH's pattern of energy and I was told that his pattern was normal. He has no Chem next week than starts another round for 2 weeks and than a scan is next. After Chemo we went to Breakfast with his oldest Son and DH completely cleaned his plate of a regular order of Biscuits & Gravy. He said he needed to gain back the 4 ounces he lost since last week.

It has been a long day and right now it's hard to keep those eyes from going shut.
Have a better day tomorrow.

That is a good idea! It would drive him crazy if I was smiling and happy all day no matter how he acted! I will do it today:)

I have not been able to sleep these past few nights and this weekend we are planning to go to Fort Brag, about a 4 hour drive, one way, and stay in a campsite for the night then come back on Sunday. I hope my oldest son will ride with me, but he will probably ride with his brother. My daughter bought a brand new RV travel trailer and she is on vacation, so they are staying up there for a few days, but it will be fun for one night I think:)

Tee, I hope you were able to go back to bed!
Michele, thanks for the suggestion!

Chrome seems to be working better for me tonight too.

I have been doing Zumba since class was introduced, but if I skip a class or two, it is like I never went. Same with weight lifting, but not with swimming.

Sorry you did not get everything done Sue. There is always something for me to do even when I do a lot. I did good job on my place after neighbor left stuff to take to thrift store, but still have not tackled the kitchen cabinets, etc. Keeping busy helps with my diet and quit.

I understand how you feel about getting up a lot at night. I stayed up when I owned home, but go back to bed now that I live in apt since my neighbors are retired and sleep in and I don't fell like looking at tv or twiddling my thumbs. I hope you went back to bed and feel rested.

I had tons of energy after the chemo because of the steroids. I couldn't sleep at all the first night, and barely the second. The closer it got to treatment the worse I felt. I would be up for 3 or 4 days and then crash and burn for the following days:)

Now, I have a Sty in my eye and it makes me wanna cry.lol
but seriously, it hurts, and will probably look real ugly by morning!

I think that when you are active it helps so much too. The more I exercise, the more energy I have throughout the day....I don't know why I don't do it more:)

I did terrible the past 2 days. I have a horrible co-worker and he is so mean and nasty, that when I go in a good mood, he ruins it right away, then I end up chain smoking! I have been in my brother's ear a lot lately about getting rid of him. He is so condescending and demeaning. I told my brother that I will not ask him anything anymore because it just gives him the opportunity to be mean and nasty to me. He said when he hired the lady to help dispatch that if he had to work with him, he would have to fire him because he is so rude and awful to everyone. I said last night, if you know you can't work with him, how can you expect us too?

Good question I think?

No energy the past 3 days. Funny the 3 days after Chemo he is full of energy, then from Sunday till his next Chemo he just don't have it. Have never seen this with the cancer patients I'll taken care off. They were either with no energy after chemo or remained full of energy. Don't figure. Thanks for asking. ..... How's that smoking plan you came up with doing?

Tee great that you're getting some exercise in. I'll found at times the more activity I can get in the better I feel and the easier for me to dodge those infrequent cravings. In the last 4 months I can see that I have been forcing myself to exercise and be more active as I go along when at home. Once away from this environment I can walk till I can drop. That is not me at all.!

Enjoy today!

Michele, how is your DH doing? Is the computer working any better today? Mine seems to be for a minute:)

Tee, good for you going to Zumba and strength training! That's great! Hope you're not too sore though:)

I did not get everything done yesterday but at least that means I'll be busy today. It sure helps the time go by faster when I'm busy:)

I'm up way too early but got tired of getting up and down all night so I decided to just get up. But now I wish I would have gone back to bed. I may do that still, I'm tired!

I had trouble with Chrome too.

I am hurting. I went to Zumba and weight lifting class on Sunday after two week absence and paying the price.

Gym friend said I looked tired. I am and feel my body is working bc of medication. I took a sleep aid and going to hit the sack. I know from past experience that my pain level decreases and memory improves with sleep.

To access your spark page, go to the start page, then go down to My Community, click on Full Community, and it will be the first link, you can switch back to Quick Community to get your team bonus points anytime. I don't know why they made it so complicated! it used to be on the side of every page, all the time!

I did really good with my eating yesterday, and with my smoking. I wrote down the time every time I lit one up, and only smoked 1 pack by the this morning. Writing it down really helps, then when I go to smoke another and it's only been 15 minutes or so, I put it down and wait a little while longer, so it really helps.

Well, it's back to work and I left a lot of work on my desk on Friday! I also left my check at work too, so I have been pretty broke all weekend:)

It was only 82 degrees yesterday and should be in the 70's by Thursday with a chance of rain! Woohoo! I am so excited!

I am happy you like watching sports Michele. I hope the football game was good.

I found there was nothing to watch on tv. Programs on tv were reruns because season premieres starts this week. I found myself switching between PBS and QVC. I could not follow the PBS and QVC is selling fall clothing, which did not appeal to me.

I had a load of problems with Spark when I had dsl, and none since switching to u verse. But I still can not figure out how to access my spark page. The only time I can access it is when someone comments or sends a goodie. Do you know how to do this?

I am creature of habit and dislike change. I ate the same breakfast daily from time I was a teen into my 40s. I don't really like coffee and only drink it for the chocolate, sweetener and milk flavors. A friend gave me vanilla stevia and I could not stop drinking regular coffee. Costco gave sample of coffee with flavored coffee mate and I drank three samples.

Good for you for sticking to diet and exercising. Are you trying to lose weight?

I am loving the less humid weather. It is 73 degrees with 60% humidity.

emoticon emoticon emoticon this is not a day for lack of something to watch on TV. Let me not forget NCIS, emoticon

Talking about computer problems, at least once each day when I'm on Spark this desk-top PC freezes up. Therefore I have to close the internet and go to something else. Those elses at the same time with Spark, does not freeze up. As yet I have gotten no answer from Spark!

Well its KICK-OFF Catch you later!

I'm sorry, Tee! That's terrible, it's so hard to get used to a new taste! I smoked Raleigh cigarettes for 20 years and then they quit selling them in the U.S. I had to find a new kind to smoke and nothing tasted right for the longest time so I know how you feel. You will get used to something new though,and then it will taste great again:)

I did well with my eating yesterday even after going out to the dinner party and the sandwich at Mr. Pickles! I stayed within the low range of points and I got a lot of exercise shopping and had to walk a long way to the restaurant and back, plus I washed the interior of my car and all the windows. It felt good:)

We have finally cooled down! It will only be 82 degrees today, and will be in the 70's next week! Yay-finally!

I had the same problem with Spark and it was not my computer. It could have been dsl since site seems to work better with u verse.

Party for your DD sounded good. I am dancer and would have gone dancing with them. Thank goodness they do not have to drive afterwards.

My DS turned 40 in July. We had luncheon for him at BJs restaurant. His wife gave him gift of driving race car. He loved it and won race.

Stores here stopped selling my instant coffee. General Foods International. I have been drinking this coffee for over 40 years and don't know what I am going to do. I only drink one cup of decaf coffee daily, but am lost without it. I don't make good Mr Coffee and refuse to buy Keurig. Stores stopped selling mine to make room for all the Keurig type coffee. I looked at Folger and flavored coffee creamers, but could not bring myself to purchase and try them.

I have been watching The Roosevelts ( Franklin and Eleanor) on PBS. It was good but ended last night. I missed the first 2-3 episodes and wanted to buy the dvds, but cost $130, which is out of my price range. It was terrible that Eleanor's mother disliked her because she was not pretty and her father was an alcoholic. Her brother was alcoholic too. She knew Franklin had cousin female companion, but did not find out about him seeing his secretary until she accompanied his body back to white house. She was a strong woman and accomplished a lot in her lifetime.

Gym and weight in tomorrow. I am anxious to see if cooler weather, cooking meals, cleaning etc. led to losing the weight I put on during hot spell.

My computer is so frustrating! i have been on here numerous times, but it's such a hassle to even try and post anything, that I end up getting frustrating and just turning it off. I looked for a new one at Walmart, but changed my mind at the last minute. It's working for a minute now anyways!

My DD turns 40 tomorrow and we just got back from a huge dinner party to celebrate at Chicago Fire in Folsom. Both my sisters and all my kids, nephews and nieces, and their spouses, and my husbands nephew and his wife, we all had a good time!

The younger people stayed to go next door to the Power House for dancing. They have a room right across the street so no one has to drive home! Praise God for that!

Cloudy and 77 degrees here. I had rough night. Up and down constantly. Fell asleep at 5 am and ATT calls at 8 am to remind me they are coming to install internet this afternoon. Groan!

I am taking advantage of weather and cooking the veggies I bought when it was too hot to cook and declutter kitchen cabinets while waiting for tech.

Relax while having your hair done Michele.

Temp thru night stayed in the low50s. Even now those temps are moving towards 70 an it's early. Should be short weather today in the afternoon, then rain tomorrow and Fall temps after that.

No plans outside of Hair Salon, picking up Rx and then home to continue downsizing.
Enjoy the last weekend of Summer, FaLL is a few days away! emoticon

Good for you Michele. My internet price is only good for a year. Billing rep said to call when it goes up and she will see what she can do since I am a long time customer. She will probably be gone in a year, and I will be looking for new provider. lol

Talk about pre holiday. Warehouse chains and stores already have Xmas decorations, etc for sale. I worked retail and know when Xmas items are put up early it is because the economy is bad. Some people said they started buying their kids presents. I did that one year and companies came out with new products my kids wanted. I had to return what I bought and purchase the new toys. That was last time I shopped early.

I am still doing fall birthdays. Won't be finished until before Thanksgiving. Then, it is time to buy Xmas presents.

It is cooler here, but short wearing weather. I went to the gym and swam in cool pool. I weighed in at the gym to see if all the moving, etc. lead to loss. It didn't. I gained another half pound. I figured it was water weight that I would lose from swimming and weighed again afterwards. Results were the same. Another member weighed after me and said the scale was wrong and weighing a few pounds heavier. She weighed at home and was 3 lbs lighter, but maybe her home scale is wrong. The gym has doctor scale and is usually with half pound heavier than my doc's scale. Needless to say I am very disappointed. I have been dieting and exercising for a week and no loss. Maybe the gain has to do with me eating Lean Cuisine meals during hot weather. I am going to cook now that it is cooler to see if that helps.

I cleaned and ready for the ATT tech to install the new internet this afternoon. I don't have plans this weekend and will probably stay home today and see if I can get rid of more stuff to take to thrift store. Then, off to gym on Sunday.

This must be the time of the year when companies feel they can get in on the pre-holiday money spending. Before anyone gets wise. I connected our Cable provider only to find that the plan we had was only good for one year. So, I told them that was fine that we would look for a better provider with a better plan. Low an behold there was a better plan for us. So went with that one for now. I was surprised with myself bc the Volume of my Voice did not go up once. Guess I'm getting better at blowing off steam. At least I'm not picking up smokes to calm my nerves, I burn off a few calories instead.

Enjoy the last weekend of Summer as Fall is just 5 days away.

I phoned ATT yesterday to complain about them raising price of my dsl internet service every three months. Rep says that is going rate cause you don't have contract. I replied, I never had a dsl contract. I told her I should receive higher speed for the price they are charging me instead of internet crashing, etc. She looked up my area and said techs worked on it recently and improved. She quoted me $49 a month plus $199 equip and installation fee for u verse internet. I asked what about the $29 or less that is advertised on tv? She said that does not apply to me since I am not new customer. That is when I lost it. I told her the agents that phone me claim that is not true. Since I have dsl, I am considered a NEW u verse customer and qualify for advertised price. Then, I went into a long rage that I won't upgrade to u verse bc I can not trust what they tell me and need to look into signing up with different company. She transferred me to another rep to see if she could come up with better deal.

I went thru the same thing with next rep. She tried to sell me package. I said no. Today was the first time I used my phone in a week and I don't watch tv. She finally offered me high speed u verse for $31 a month with no equip or installation charge. Since I pay $29 a month for lowest speed dsl, I took it. The man will be here to install on Sat.

I am hoping the new speed will help me navigate Spark, etc better and faster so I spend less time on computer and more time tending to things I have neglected.

Did anyone watch the new Spielberg show on Tuesday night at 9 pm on channel 11? I forgot the name but it is about terminally ill kids and their support system, etc. I was cooking and up/down, but liked what I saw and going to watch next week. In one scene a ill teenage girl walks into a elementary boys room. He is in coma and she says do you mind if I smoke and lights up. I missed what happened next.

How much is carton of cigs there Michele? I think a carton is around $40-45 here. CVS decided to get rid of their cigs a month earlier and sold them for $2 a pack. I saw a woman smoking vapor cig in freezer section of supermarket yesterday. First it was dogs in store. Now e cigs.

The Y was closed yesterday due to power outage. Power went out at 10 am and was not expected to come on until 9 pm. So they closed for the day. I was hot, sweaty, looking forward to swim and disappointed they were closed when I got there. I did errands, cleaned, etc and going swimming today. A member that was in the gym when the lights went off, said members that were riding bikes, etc refused to get off and leave. One woman asked trainer to put up the window shade so she could continue reading her magazine while pedaling. lol

My neighbor and I hauled furniture down the block Tuesday night. The furniture was left behind by tenant and friend that moved to Idaho. I decided we should pile all the furniture on the computer table with wheels and push down block were trash would pick up. I wanted to push on sidewalk. Neighbor suggested rolling in the street. I felt her idea was better since no driveways in the street. A quarter way down the block the wheeled table gets stuck in a pot hole and we had to carry everything a few feet where pavement was smooth. Street conditions got worse. By the time we reached our destination, some of the wheels had fallen off the table. So we carried the furniture the rest of the way. We had to go around a tree and lamp post and got stuck. It was some site, but furniture was gone this morning. Yeah! We got rid of the bags with recycles last night and need to clean out her storage cabinet next week. The building owner threatened to charge lady for leaving furniture, recycles and storage. The tenant lived here 29 years and left her place immaculate. She lost her job two years ago, could not find another here and moved in with relatives in Idaho. Both of us felt it was not fair for owner to charge her and doing the work for her. Staying this active does not give me time to crave. So either I have to apply as a mover or volunteer to help people move. lol

I take quitting one day at a time and hope I will be where you are someday Michele.

Long ago after my youngest was born. I went to my doctor; 1. I needed to get rid of the weight from pregnancy and 2. I did not want to start smoking again. I asked for something that would help with both my wants. The doc was trained in the old school ( Family doctor and one who believes you knew your body way more than he did. ) " This is what he told me, " you don't needed anything to get that weight off or never smoke again. It is after all ' Mind over Matter! '

One must want to drop the weight and/or quit smoking. Just about 3 years ago when I ended up in the hospital with chest tubes ( not from smoking but from radiation from Breast Cancer. I decided than that No more would I smoke. I would find another way to relax myself and drop a few pounds. I joined Spark. Got the weight off and worked close with Sandi and got off of Nicotine. Now more than ever knowing that COPD evolved into Lung Cancer for hubby is reason enough to stay Quit. We all have that right of Choice! Sometimes it's one of the hardest choices one can Make, however it is worth it!

I know what you meant....been there, and well understand. We all have someone who keeps an eye on us from Above. He'll let you know when your ready for a Quit. Stay well!

I meant I was "not' going to smoke whether he came over or not. I left out the not.
We didn't get any rain and it's so smokey from the huge King fire that is just up the road. It's right where we go camping and fishing and everything. Are favorite spots are now burned. The fire in the other direction was fast but worse because it burned 150 homes. The King fire was set on purpose by some jerk with a long criminal history. He must have mental problems to do something like that on purpose! If someone ends up dying from the fire, he will be charged with murder too. I'm so glad they caught him!

My son came over this morning and he was smoking. He said he did use the ecig a little bit at work, but is still smoking too. Sigh, I hope we both can quit!!

I hate running ac too. I have to eat, etc in my ac bedroom and feel like I am in prison. It is a cooler tonight. There was wind when I came home, but my apt was still 88 degrees with all the windows open. I have everything open, fans going and may not need ac tonight since bedroom is 75 now. Weatherman said cooling trend will be short. So I am not putting ac away.

My neighbor that moved phoned. She was 2-3 hours from her new home in Boise, Idaho. She called to say she forgot to clean out her storage unit in garage and wants two of us to toss everything in it.

The building owner wants to charge former tenant for leaving three pcs of wooden furniture near the dumpster and trash bags full of recycle by the bins. I don't feel she should be charged since there are not enough containers for the amount of apts in building and they are always overflowing when no one moves out.

I devised a plan to get rid of the furniture tonight. The city is coming to pick up big stuff like refrig, furniture, etc on Friday. So, a neighbor and I rolled the furniture down the block to where a homeowner put sofa at curb and left the furniture there. I put coffee table, etc near the sofa so it looks like living room at the curb. lol I doubt the furniture we put there tonight will be there tomorrow.

I am going to toss her recycle trash bags into the dumpster after the garbage truck comes tomorrow. Then, I will toss out stuff in her storage unit away next week. I am going to take the items she left in my apt to thrift store over weekend.

I talked the lady that helped me into giving me the upright vac she left behind since my vac that is almost 40 years broke. Hopefully, I can vacuum over the weekend too.

Thank you, I htink he is trying but didn't want to make me uncomfortable for smoking, so he didn't say anything. I am hoping he comes over this morning and I will ask him. If he's not smoking, I won't smoke while he is here either! I'm afraid if he quits and I don't, he won't come over in the morning for coffee anymore. It might be too hard if I still smoke.
I was going to smoke this morning whether he came over or not, but of course, I did! Someday....thank you for your prayers and thoughts!

I can't wait for winter either! It was a bit cooler yesterday. Only 90 degrees:) Supposed to be even cooler today. There were a few high clouds and the possibility of a sprinkle or two tomorrow! I hate running the a/c because I have to close the sliding glass door and the bathroom window and it gets smokey in here, plus it's so loud so I have to blast the tv. I can't wait for winter or even fall would be nice!

I think it is great that your son resisted smoking with you. It shows he is trying to quit. Maybe, he did it so he could encourage you to quit. I hope and pray he succeeds. emoticon

58 should heavenly. My apt was 90 again today, but dropped to 88 due to huge fans blowing hot air out the doors/windows. Temecula got rain today. We are suppose to get it on Thursday. I am tired of being confined to ac bedroom at home and looking forward to rain.

I took out my e cig yesterday cause I had terrible craving. It was leaking and broken, but I got to smell the fluid on my fingers.

My son bought an ecig on Saturday but then he said he smoked on Sunday, and yesterday he said he used it at work but smoked once he got home. Well, he came over this morning and of course I was smoking, and didn't realize until after he left that he hadn't smoked at all while he was here. I hope I didn't mess him up by smoking! I noticed when he left there were no butts in the ashtray so I'm sure he didn't smoke at all.

Temp this morning is at 58 and we had rain through the night. Did get to sleep around 2 a.m. instead of 3. Bad Sinus Headache this morning and just not up to par. No specific plans for today, will just handle things as they pop up.

How are those Quits working out?

I am glad it is cool where you live and you can rest.

Another 100 degree day here. My apt is 90 degrees. I swam for 90 minutes today. The pool water felt so good I did not want to get out, but my leg cramped and I had to leave.

I looked forward to putting on the ac in my bedroom and watching tv in bed when I got home, but my neighbor that was moving was so far behind, I ended up helping her pack apt and car, toss trash, etc. for three hours with another neighbor.

She planned to take canned food with her. Her friend that is driving them to Idaho, said there was not room in the car for them, let alone the food. She refused to give up thought of not taking the food. I told her hand over the canned goods and no one gets hurt. lol She fit in the car, but had so much stuff under her feet she could not put them down. They left at 8:30 pm and I nuked a Lean Cuisine dinner to eat in my ac bedroom.

I slept last night and hope to do the same tonight.

I have been taking thyroid medication for over 50 years and this is first time I can't lose weight. I checked out the LA specialist I considered seeing. His website does not list any info about seeing patients that live less than 2 hours away from his office. I wrote to his out of state patient in hopes of obtaining more info. From what I can tell he charges $500 for consult. $300 for labs and $150 for computer/telephone follow up visit. That is a lot of $$. The doctor that oversees my healthcare feels these fees are outrageous. She suggesting keeping her, since I need thyroid medication since I do not have gland, to write prescriptions.

There isn't any doctor that accepts ins that is better than mine. I saw another doctor in her office when mine was on maternity leave. She was worse. She said my test levels were fine when they indicated I was hypo (low thyroid).
