I am lucky that I didn't get the bad weather that a lot of people got. It's very cold here this week, though. I've spent the last two days at the hospital with my mom and will be there again today. She's got some blockage in her heart and the doctors aren't sure yet how much and where. We'll know more once she has a procedure done. Her blood has to get thicker (she's on blood thinners) before they can do it, though. She's 83 and I am faced with the fact that we never know how long each of us is here. It's not a comfortable feeling.

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Patty hope you didn't get all that snow to go with all the ice. Yuck. My brother lives in the Flint area of MI and they had a bad ice storm last Saturday night.

So how was everyone's Christmas or Holiday that you celebrate?

Christmas eve was okay, yet rough. My boyfriend's parents came and took us out for lunch. During lunch I had a bad anxiety attack that lasted a very long time. The rest of the day my nerves were shot and I ended up having to miss the party I go to every Christmas eve. Christmas day was much better. Boyfriend, friend and I exchanged gifts, had breakfast and tea in the morning. Then boyfriend and I drove together to NC for my family's Christmas gathering. We had a nice dinner and had a lot of fun with playing Chinese Christmas or Dirty Santa game as it's been called. It was really fun watching the little ones play. I got to see my baby great niece for the first time and she is just beautiful...course I may be partial. ha ha!

Yesterday was worn out so I slept much of the day. Today has been a lazy day so far as well.

It constantly rained here in Detroit all day Friday and Saturday. Then the temperature took a nosedive and a lot of places around here got ice. Now, the "powers that be" (i.e.: weathermen who really don't know 99% of the time what will happen!) are calling for 1" of snow today, tomorrow and Christmas day.

As of yesterday, I am finally done with wrapping presents! emoticon It sure beats when my girls were little and I remember wrapping presents watching midnight mass from the Vatican. I will be getting a kitchen faucet for my Mom today, but thank goodness I don't have to wrap that. A friend will be going over there with me to measure to make sure we get the right one and will put it in for me. Handywoman I am not!

Hi!

Hope y'all have had an enjoyable weekend and stayed safe n warm with all these winter storms that have or are to hit.

MOOMSHINE~ Itchy free sounds great! I will keep you lifted in prayer. One step at a time indeed. One healthy choice at a time. emoticon

Patty~ I hope the natural remedies work for you.

Today we have had lots of rain (better than snow imo...lol) We are to get 2-4 inches of rain by days end. Good day to snuggle and read or watch a movie..neither of which I did. Well okay I did snuggle down for a nap. LOL!!

Have a great nite!

Moomshine - I am glad that you found something that seems to be working for you. I've been fighting a fingernail fungus on my thumbs for about three months now - it's not too bad but definitely aggravating. I was on a prescription for two months. It helped a little, but once I was off, it got worse again. I was in a vitamin store yesterday myself. I googled some home remedies and found that cider vinegar, baking soda, vitamin E oil and tea tree oil supposedly will help. Quite a few sites mentioned it. I am hoping I will see an improvement.

I believe the kids are on Winter Break, and having a great time hacking and whacking - a lot of odd things are going on with my internet connections, as well.
I've had a mysterious rash for 4 months, as of yesterday, have stopped all vitamin supplements, and diabetes/blood-pressure meds to see if we can find the culprit. For the first time in 4 months, I am itchy-itchy free, and I know the itching is not because I'm stressing out - Whoo hoo!. I'm to call him when sugars and blood pressure go over certain numbers, and . . . . I'm hoping to control things through diet and exercise, and I'm very hopeful. Today, all my numbers are within range! One day at a time.

I've had off and on problems for about three weeks. I've gotten notifications from teams that I don;t belong to, have had the computer not respond, etc. It's definitely aggravating.

I don't know what in the sam hill is going on; but, someone or something is messing around with the internet!

I bet you will find, with the number of members there is; that some are not getting through!

I have had nothing but trouble since last week, I couldn't even get notifications of the team I am co-leader of!

Ever little bit; Internet Explorer goes down! Up and down; up and down!

When I went to post on here a bit ago; the same thing happened; then said I wasn't a member! I tried to rejoin, wouldn't even let me do that! FINALLY I got through!

So, that may be the problem! Just saying!

Wow Patty You are on your toes! Hope the post office wasn't a crazy place!

Janet~ I am such a clutter bug that I don't have any good tips expect for just taking baby steps. I think waiting a few days be4 is good, just do a lil each day so you don't feel pressed having to do it at last minute. How many people are you expecting?

Well presents are bought, but thanks to the winter snow storms many of my packages are in limbo and will be late in coming. Sigh....I will not panic...I will not panic.

Yesterday I had injection in my lower back in hopes of getting relief from sciatic nerve pain. Am hopeful it will help. Fibro has been in check so that is helpful.

Anyone watching any Christmas movies, plays, or musicals at church? I know y'all are mighty busy. I love to take time to do one fun thing to relax from hustle and bustle. My church usually has a musical, but I might have missed it.

Have a great day everyone! emoticon

What I don't like about getting ready for company.
Most things you have to leave until the week of, to get done! Exp. In running the sweeper; dusting; straighting up! If you do them the week before, with dogs, and chores, you just have them to do over!

Anyone have any way around this; except maybe doing them and leaving on vacation so no one is at home!

Janet~ The sound machine sounds wonderful. maybe that would help me fall asleep and sleep better overall?

MOOMSHINE~ Hang in there. You are not alone in your struggle. Keep trying your tricks as much as you can. Could it be you are thirsty and not hungry? Could it be you are depriving yourself? I go with SP's everything in moderation...unless it's a trigger food then not so much.
Just don't beat yourself up. emoticon

Well I went to Olive Garden with my sister after my PT appointment. Yummy soup, salad and breadsticks. I did okay, but got sucked into having that 2nd bowl of soup. Thankfully didn't finish whole bowl, but man did I feel full. My sister and I had a lot of fun chatting.

It has rained here in upstate SC for over a week now and I am soooo ready for emoticon !! Hoping it will come out soon.

Those old habits are trying to creep back into my life: I'm hungry when I'm not truly hungry, I reach for whatever food is handy without even giving it a thought, I'm feeling goody deprived. I know it's the holidays that is doing it to me, and I've learned a lot of tricks, but it's as if I have pregnant brain (remember what that was like?), what planet am I from? ! ? Really ! ? !

I have the "Lord's Prayer" which I recite!

I also have a sound machine. Anything from a 'heart beat' to 'white noise'. All very relaxing.

I do some random meditating from time-to-time, and I find it helpful. Here is a link to qi Gong, which is not meditation, but it is very relaxing. www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-detail

Hi! What type of mediation are you trying?

I often will put on relaxing music and meditate on the sounds...the musician, the instruments, the lyrics, or some of them are without lyrics and have the ocean sound or rain.

How is everyone doing this weekend?

Today the weather has turned really cold and my fibro is kicking my behind. Trying to stay positive. Am listening to Christmas music to lift my spirits.

Not much else going on, other than boyfriend and I will do a little grocery shopping later today.

Have a great day!

It's been a busy week..Dr. appointment or PT each day this week except Friday. This morning was my Psych-dr. and he feels I am doing well. I think the added Zoloft is just what I needed.

Today is the anniversary of my mom's death. She passed away in 1995. I'm doing okay with it; better than usual. I just hope my brother is doing as well.

Got my PT exercises in a few minutes ago and my pain level is way down. So very thankful.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Patty I usually have my emoticon up by now too, but my apartment is such a wreck there is no way that I am going to get out the decorations to make a bigger mess. LOL

Janet~ I too have fibro and several Dr. appointments this month. Will have to find balance and see what I can get done. At least most of my Christmas shopping is out of the way. Glad to have you chatting with us!

Well this morning I did my PT exercises here at home and so far so good on low pain levels. I need to get to the bank, but just feel like holing up in my apartment. Will go out in a bit though just to get it done and over with.

SC is having warmer temps this week. emoticon

Well I hope everyone enjoys the day and manages to keep down the stress.

Happy Holidays! I made it through having 20 people here in my tiny condo on Thanksgiving. I did stop at one store on Friday and remembered why I don't like going into stores between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I ordered some things on line. Usually, my tree is up the day after Thanksgiving. Didn't happen yet - I'm hoping today or tomorrow. I've been behind since September and can't seem to catch up no matter how long I work at it each day.

Welcome December. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! Did anyone do Black Friday shopping?

Enjoy this Holiday season and come hang out and chat; help keep each other's spirits up as this can be a lonely and stressful time of year.
