Hey Jessica welcome to you newest family!
I hope everyone has had as great day as I have!
First and foremost I've found my relief to pain! These magnets are a godsend I've been wearing them approx 24 hours now and haven't had any pain now for the last 6-8 hours!
Went to my doctor today had the most excellent visit with him.
I asked him about x-raying my knees so that we could maybe see what exactly was going on with them. Because if we could pin point the exact problem then maybe a couple of cortisone shots directly to the area.
Well did I get a lesson in medicine today. LOL
He literally brought out the model of a knee joint and walked me though the detailed working of the knee joints, what was happening within my knee. Showed me exactly where the cartilage was and why it wouldn't show up on an x-ray.
So we're going to continue what we are doing plus the strengthening exercises he now gave me as well.
He told me he used to be a runner and jiggered his knee the same way when he was still in the united Kingdom and he did these same exercises and it fixed his knee.
He spent a good half hour with me. None of this oh it's this we'll do that and shoo me out the door. He takes his time explains in detail. He's the old English doctor. Love it.
He actually takes the time to listen.
And at work I've completed my mission ahead of time Ive gotten all last years Christmas greetings taken care of and collected a few new ones as well.
So now it's onto the oil patches.
But tomorrow we take a break and go shopping in Red Deer.

What kind of day did you all have?

Marion, I don't know how you enjoy the cold. I used to, but as I am getting older it is harder. I admire your tenacity. But I understand taking the car too.

I worked half a day yesterday, not the best but certainly not the worst. When I come home from Mama's, Danny was in the bed. He was feeling kind of rough. So I had a quite evening until he got up around 8:00 pm. I fed him a baked potato and some peas. That seems to be his meal of choice when he is nauseated. We went to bed around 10:30, he slept pretty well and this morning he felt better.

I did not eat like I did the last time. I wasn't even sure he would eat so I fixed a salad with some turkey and that was all I had until later. I pop me some popcorn mini bag. Just right.

Well I hope that everyone has a great day.

Took an early lunch and worked on processing my insertion orders. After went back out and finished the rest of them Took the ca Wasn't going to freeze my buns off a second time!

Good to hear from you Marion. I just got home from my Mom's assisted living. Kathy and I decorated her room today for Christmas. I think that she likes it. I at least hope so. I worked half a day today and now trying to decide what I want to eat for supper. I think it will salad with a little bit of turkey I had left from Thanksgiving. I need to finish it off and move on. Danny is laying down and doesn't feel like eating tonight. Chemo was Tues. but I think today has been a rough day for him. I'm hanging in there. I am not going to over do my eating this time.

Oh boy what a day! An awesome day in sales for me! I love it when I have the busiest day possible! I want that kind of a day every day!
Knee is doing much better I'm actually able to walk on it normally without having to wear the supports.
Tomorrow morning I'm meeting with one of the fitness instructors to get some Nikken magnet patches to wear on my knees. We'll see how they work.

Hope that everyone had a good day yesterday. Marion, I am glad you will now have a fitness center to go to. I go to Curves and it is good to get in with the other ladies. Since our emails, I have tried to think more of myself and drag myself there--sometimes not wanting to go but when I do go and exercise I always feel much better afterwards.

We had a different sort of Thanksgiving yesterday. We went and had lunch with Mama at the Broadmore where she is staying now. Then Danny's sister who is 10 yrs. older than him is in the hospital and we went over to visit with them. His other sister came over from West Va. and is staying with her in the hospital so Ann's husband could go home and get some rest. Danny thinks that maybe she might have pneumonia. The hospitalist put her on an antibiotic this morning and is ordering another x-ray of her chest.

As far as eating at the assisted living I too did not over eat. I ate the portions that were given, which was on a 10" plate. So the portions weren't as big if we had one of those huge trays that we normally eat out of. Then for the evening meal, since we had nowhere else to go, we had turkey sandwiches. I had put a breast on in the crock pot on Wed. night. I would rather do that than had a huge meal.

Anyway we are off to meet a couple, that Danny used to work with the husband and they ride motorcycles, for lunch.

I hope that every one has a great day.

Good for you Bess!
Love the attitude too!
Yeah the center opens next Friday So from the day it opens I too want to go at least a half hour every day. Right now the best machine for me is the strider. It doesn't bend my knee at all.

Yippee about the fitness center!!!

I love my fitness center - been a member since the day it opened. On a good week I go 4 times - on a great week I go 5!

I made my Turkey day plan which allowed for lots of indulgences - and sent the leftover pie home with 2 teenage girls. Now I just have to follow the REST of the plan since weigh-in isn't till Tuesday. My commitment for this week was to maintain but that doesn't mean I am not allowed to loose. Who knows. I might!

I am one tired cookie. Sore knee or no sore knee I was up and down the streets today collecting my Christmas sales. After hitting almost half the businesses in town I got all but two. Tomorrow I hit the other half. Some by phone.
My knee? Hurts like a bugger. I have it elevated and it's still throbbing, but I gott'er done.
And it's another day tomorrow

And boy do I have news! Our little town as small as it is has now got their own fitness center! I registered tonight $30/month! It has striders, treadmills, weight machines, rowing machines, ellipticals and kettle bells. etc I can't wait!
I can go anytime because the membership includes key code entry.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I went to eat at the assisted living place where my mother is. They portioned out the food just right and that is all I had. This is the way to go. No food laying around to keep grazing on and no temptations. I hope that everyone has had a great day.

And WHOOP there it is!
Monday and Tuesday weren't exactly bombs. I did what I was suppose to do but didn't matter who I approached they declined the offer or opportunity to post with the paper. Today everyone I approached bought what I was selling. And I had three promotions on the go! They could by it as a package and save 8% or they could by singles or doubles.
But the paperwork involved setting it up took me a better part of the day but as I put each package together I made the phone calls, presented the offer and made the sales.
I HAD A GREAT DAY!

Hi AMYB and welcome to the team.

The human will is the most incredible thing. It's keeps us going, when everyone else expects us to quit. Marion this a great quote, I'm going to have to keep as my Mantra for right now. We went to the nurse practitioner yesterday and Danny's cance has matastasized to his liver. He has 10-12 spots on his liver and he will start another round of Chemo next Tues. So you saying is good for the 2 of us. I'm hanging in there for right now. Trying to remember I can't eat to sooth myself. I just need to keep thinking and not just functioning. We could use all the prayers we can get.

I hope that everyone has a great day. I am getting my turkey breast ready, are you?

It's been a long two days so far and tomorrow is going to be an even longer one with what I have to accomplish before Monday 5 o'clock deadline.
I've been a bit o my emotional game the last couple of days. I had to put my baby down; Tuck my youngest cat. Only a year old. He seemed to be doing absolutely fine. I'd nursed him from birth got him strong and healthy and then BOOM he started becoming very lethargic He was eating and drinking and going to the bathroom just fine but he wasn't putting on weight and no matter what we tried, the vet and I, we couldn't get him over it. He developed glaucoma too. The medication was clearing that up no problem Then we decided to put a litter box in his room for nights and caught him eating the kitty litter! He was trying to ix the problem himself By eating the litter he was trying to replace the minerals and protein he was lacking. Problem was it was clumping litter so every time he drank the moisture was causing it to turn into cement. So there was anything we could do to fix that. Out of all the animals I've ever had to put to sleep he was the hardest.

And then I have no idea how but I've torn the cartilage in my right knee. That's always fun. So now I am on medication for that. It's been a real bed of roses let me tell you.
But work is my steady rock Keeps my mind active and not thinking on these other things.
Yesterday I was so maxed out every little thing upset me. And all I was doing at the time was mending Walter's coveralls! Trying to put on pockets for him Not a complicated thing. But it was just frustrating finally Walt came and gently took me away from it hugged me and started singing Soft kitty; Big bang if you ever watch it LOL Calmed me down, made me laugh and eel better about things.
Yesterday at work I had to actually step outside walk around the building and do some deep breathing exercises. Had nothing to do with work. So not sure what's going on. Left over post surgery from having my gall bladder out five weeks ago? God only knows.
Anyway I should shush now and see how many other e-mails I can get answered before the clock hits the "witching hour" LOL

Hi, it has been a good day so far. Danny off to the Harley Shop and I am here writing. He asked if I wanted to go but my knee has been not right lately and I was afraid I couldn't get my leg across the bike. So I decided to stay here. We are trying to do more of the normal things before he starts Chemo again.

We went to church this morning and all of Danny's family are home for the weekend and they came to church and then we went out to eat. Danny's brother and his wife celebrated their 45th anniversary last night. That is why the 2 sisters that live away came home. So not a bad weekend thus far.

We are having our community Thanksgiving service tonight so I am cooking for that this afternoon.

I hope that everyone is having a great day.

Good morning all,

And a hearty warm welcome to our two newest members RITASPARK2 & JOEY431216 Welcome Ladies! I want you to remember something If there is one thing I've learned it's this. With EVERY day you awaken we, YOU have the empowerment. The choices we make there are always consequences. The mind is our most powerful ally
www.thesecret.tv/optimists-creed/

My Saturday is a typical Saturday around here well maybe lol Hubs work pants and coveralls were in serious need of mending but with this bum knees I'm having to become ambidextrous with my foot pedal and use my left? Not as easy as it sounds lol but we managed. So now all pockets and tears are mended and he has two new additional upper pockets on the one pair of coveralls. Snitch them from a pair of totally unrepairable pants!

I absolutely detest this bum knee it inhibits me from my normal levels of activities! AAARGH!
And today I'm afraid all I feel like doing is sitting and crying. Yeah Marion's having an emotional day! Go figure huh.
Not just feeling right yet I guess after the surgery. Difficult to describe. It's almost like I feel this void, actually eel like something or a part of me is missing? Anyone else every have that feeling after having a body part removed. Hec, I didn't even feel this after the Hysterectomy So what's up with that? Ladies?

Still dropping the weight and looking what I see in the mirror these days. Seriously thinking of changing my do; colour, shape, style. The whole nine yards! Just have to ind the right style for the shape of my face. Yep thinking radical! LOL

Yesterday was a very full day. To work by 8 rather than 9 and out on the road for the day didn't get home until 9 last night A great day non the less. And what was even better was the gal I was with had an ultra violet device and having that on my knee was a great help. It relieved the pressure and discomfort. I'm looking into getting one myself but they cost 3500. But when ti comes to my health and natural healing.....
I'm of to our office Christmas party in a couple of hours

VM I am so sorry to hear about Danny.
On the upside I'm liking what I'm hearing; 2 pounds lost and eating better.
Myself because I no longer have a gallbladder to take care of and process the fat and my liver is now my sole purifier I did a natural liver cleanse to get rid of any stones it may be harbouring.

Marion, I am sooo sorry about your Tuck. It is really hard to do what you did. I had to do the same for my Callie 1 yr after we lost Amy. Callie was her cat anyway, I wouldn't let her take Callie when she got married because I was losing her but still had the cat. Callie got cancer in one of her hind legs and there was no stopping it. I too tried with diet and medicine to build her up but she fought me every step of the way and then I had to decide just who was I treating me or her. She was my source of comfort when Amy died. I think Cats sense when we are hurting. Anyway I just wanted to let you know I understand from whence you are coming from.

I am sorry about not being on here for a while. Life here has gotten crazier. Danny was found with more tumors. This time in his liver. So, it looks like he is headed back for more Chemo. He is really down about this. But to be honest he looks better than he has in years and is feeling ok. But I know that won't last long when he starts the Chemo. So keep him in all of your prayers.

On a good note. I lost 2 lbs. this month. I have been trying to get more exercise and my eating has improved. emoticon

I hope everyone has a great day.

Well I broke down today and took my bad self to the doctor to have this knee checked out. It turns out I've some how torn the cartilage It will heal but it takes quite a long time to heal so patience. In the meantime he's given me a high dosage of pain numbing slave. I'll pick it up tomorrow.
Another day of success at work LOL
I have certain events every week to collect sponsors for This week it's kids page so I had created a flyer to send out by fax and accidentally left the rough draft sitting beside the printer. Well boss lady found it and came bouncing into my office with a grin from ear to ear "Love it! Excellent idea! just excellent! So she's going to put it through her program and have it ready for me tomorrow morning.

Good morning.
Sorry for being M.I.A Life as I've known it has went through some changes that I've had to adjust to here plus work has been very time consuming with the boss away. Plus even though it was a holiday yesterday I was required to work and I wasn't going to give up time and a half! So that's what been happening here. On the upside I've lost 2 pounds!

Dak We've experienced almost the same weather here in Coronation. We got royally dumped on, had it all but melt and we're getting dumped on again! We've almost got a brand new foot or more!

Well, here it is

_content&view=article&id=2980&catid=R>1&Itemid=8


Plus then my cousin does this with it!

Dearest cousin, Marion Gayle.

I would like to tell you something about your article. I could just have clicked 'like' or I could have told you it was good awesome or great in the comment column.
Here's what I did instead.
I copied and pasted it, then I sent it off in an email to my Journalist friend Joan. Joan is a published author, trained journalist, Icelandic Storyteller and Editor of an International Icelandic Newspaper as well as a regular contributor to CBC Radio.
My friend teaches writing and gives workshops on getting paid for writing. After reading your article, this is what she wants you to know.
"Tell her for me that she is a born writer." "she writes 700 times better than most small town newspaper writers."

If you wish to check her out, her name is; Joan Eyolfson Cadham, if you type her name in your search engine, you'll find her easily. her email is jcadh@sasktel.net

Good job Gayle!

And my heart is breaking.
After everything we tried my Tuck didn't make it. I had no choice but to make the hard decision of mercy.
Poor little fellow, he had all but lost his eyesight, so I was treating him with a high steroid salve 3-4 times/day. It was working He was slowly regaining his sight. I had him on a high dose antibiotic to fight off respiratory infection. It was working. What wasn't working was the High protein high fat recovery food because I wasn't aware of the act that he had been eating the clumping kitty litter! If it had been the regular kitty litter it would have saved him but it was the clumping kitty litter so any water he drank was turning it to cement in his tummy!!!! It had done the damage!
So yesterday I gave him mercy and put him to sleep. emoticon emoticon

Good morning all
Have had a rough few days here with puttycats. My Tuck hasn't been doing so well His immune system isn't what it should have been and he has turned anemic on me Doing everything I can to get him healthy but it's taking time. It even cause Glucoma. So I'm treating that too, along with antibiotics or his respiratory, and special food loaded with iron protein vitamins and minerals. He is responding but far slower than I'd like to see.

Work is going well. My Remembrance Day article is the front page feature this week! As soon as they have it uploaded to the website I can post the link.

Good morning ladies,
Boy oh boy hey? It never rains but it pours Everyone seems to be going through something either emotional or physical stresses this month!
I'm hoping things turn around for everyone real soon, like yesterday!
I'm thinking everyone needs a huge emoticon emoticon

I'm of to Red Deer here shortly to do my monthly stock up at Costco so will be gone a better part of the day I'm afraid.

Had me a very very emotional evening yesterday Went to see "Jake's Gift" It really hit home of just what our troops go through and what our Veterans have gone through when they served. If it every comes to your towns or cities GO SEE IT!

I was there not only because I wanted to be but I was also there as press to take pictures and collect news for a Remembrance day article. Once I have it all together I will bog it or everyone.

We, my day is finally done at the office. Put in an extra hour and a half today. Thought I might as well being as my sister wasn't going to be finished until 6 and I had been there since 8:30.
I'm tired but it's not a physical tired. So I'm just grabbing something lite for dinner and spending some quality time on my netbook.
Have a flyer to create for Wheel of a deal while Walt rematches The Vanishing of 7th Street. Dumb movie as far as I'm concerned.

Am very glad to hear you had a good day with mom today Vickie.

Sounds like a busy day for you Marion. I went and stayed with my mother today. He brother died and they were supposed to be doing Trick or Treat with around 82 kids in attendance at the assisted living. It ended up they were unable to come due to the snow around us they they were on 3 hr delay for school, they will be there tomorrow. I have work tomorrow so I guess I will miss it. But I did enjoy the day with her. I called my aunt and Mama talked with her for a little while.

The best news of all I went at 8:00 AM to exercise this morning. I was very proud of that. I was taking care of me. One day at a time and one bite out of the elephant at a time.

I hope that everyone will have a great Halloween emoticon emoticon Vickie emoticon

Well we fared not so bad. The sun was actually shining or a brief moment this afternoon with warmer temperatures until about 4 o'clock then it dropped substantially.
Now my day is done the paper has gone to press. Going to grab me some dinner and relax with my netbook and a movie.

Everything is fine here and we only got rain with a little sleet mix. But 30 min. from here in Roan Mountain the had 17 in. this morning and they are expecting 2 more ft. throughout the day and tonight. As you can tell I don't live too far from the mountains but the are saying tonight we might get up to 2 inches. Big, HUGE difference. For that I am thankful. My sister woke me up at 6:30 this morning but it was a good conversation. She had made a trip to Roan Mountain last night to help the little gal she has taken in. What I am proud of is that she told the little gal she was going to have to move out the first of the month. She said that she could not handle the little gal's problems and her own. Maybe a step in the right direction, we will see.

When I am finished here I am going to Curves to exercise and then home to do something. I'm not sure what. I fixed some chicken vegetable soup last night and Danny loved it. Goal for this week is to lose at least 2 lbs.

Everyone stay warm and safe.

Oh yeah fall is done. You want snow I can definitely give you snow. We're into full blown winter here.
Yesterday was a day and a half for me at the paper. Deadlines all over the place! We met them but it took some doing. Today it goes to bed and into circulation tomorrow. But we're ready to go.
Another four pounds gone since the surgery! I've had to take in my size 16s! Going shopping for jeans this week end. Just going to go to Value Village for second hand until I reach my goal weight.
Man the effects of this storm all over! How's everyone else doing? How many are without electricity etc?

Well Iguess fall is over, we are getting a spitting of snow here today and all the leaves have just about fallen off the trees. High here for today will be 40 degrees. Last week the highs were in the 70's. That is a big wake-up call.

Everyone have a great day. I am putting on a big pot of soup and staying in.

Well it's been a very interesting week end for me. I had a very enjoyable evening out last night. Went to see these fellows
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mn8szzVqjTU
And today have had a very quiet day just working on projects for the paper and doing up laundry. Right now watching a movie; woman in black.

Vickie, How fun that sounds! You thoroughly enjoy yourself! Then I'll want to hear all about it when you get back! Post pictures too if you get to take any.

Marion, it sounds like you really enjoy your job. It really helps when you do. Making friends to boot. You deserve it. You are the most hard working person I know. You go girl. I am sitting here with all my chores done except for making the bed. I will do that when I am finished here. House is straight, clothes are washed and put up, I have just put the last load of wash in the dryer, that being towels and rugs. So I am off to a Fall Festival after while. Danny is riding in a veterans ride on his motorcycle. We will meet up later and go to a Holloween party and the Harley Davidson Dealership. I'm going as a Hippie and he is going as a cowboy.

I hope that everyone else has a great day.

Well the storm blew itself out sometime during the night but we still got enough snow that my car was snowed in. So went to work an hour and a half earlier yesterday. Dug myself out this morning and then tonight Walt put the snow tires on. Wen we got home tonight Donnie McLean had been and plowed out our driveway.
I'd much rather put up with cold and snow that hurricanes and tornadoes. we are susceptible to Tornadoes here in Alberta but not that often.

Good morning everyone, It is another beautiful day today. This weekend the weather is suppose to start tuning nasty here also. Huricannes do not come to Northeast TN but we do get the effects of them. Winds are suppose to be high and Temps. will drop. emoticon I really am sad about the temps dropping. They are calling for snow flurries in the Mountains of NC which is not but about 30 min. from where I live.

I have slacked off this wk with going to Curves but I have been working in PE and have exercised with the kids. It was not a good eating day yesterday but it will be a better one today.

Hi everyone, It has been a good day here and I can't even believe you all are talking about snow. It is 69 degrees here and it has been a sunshining day. It feels wonderful. Marion, you know how you feel and I know that you don't like to be still. Just don't overdo, OK? You are loved here on this site and we all want you to get better and it sounds like you are.

My goal this week is to see if I can lose 3 lbs. We will see. I think that I can do it. I will check with you on that subject next week.

I hope that you have had as good day as I have.

Glad you are on the mend Marion. Mother hens are good though! LOL

Vickie - thanks - I had mum living with us for 2 1/2 years, but I couldn't manage in the end and she had to go into care. She is in the best place and cared for, it is just sad seeing her like that.

I have had a productive day - took Max to the groomers - will post a photo - different little man ... lol

I made lemon butter, orange butter and have roast pork in the oven with roast veggies.

I sprayed the back lawn and some of the front lawn with weed killer. I am going to have lovely lawns this year if it kills me! LOL

Nope going back to work has been the best medicine! I have a support around my belly just for that; support and it helps but I do a lot of sitting at the computer these days so it's not a physical strain.

OH MAN! You're not going to believe whats going on here! A full blown winter storm. If it keeps up like it's suppose to we'll be snowed in by morning!

Grandma Sandy, I know what you mean about you Mom but at least you are able to keep her with you. My Mom is in assisted living. But I will tell you that since she has been there she has improved some with her walking and stuff. Not her memory but she is getting care that I am unable to give her at home. She has been there since Aug. My sister was taking care of her before that. It kind of violent there because of my nephew. He has put holes in the walls and burnt the carpet with cigarettes. Not a very respectful person either. So it is good that she is where she is.

Marion, I am sooooo glad you are doing better. It is good to see you on here again. I have missed you.

I worked today again in PE. Not much to do but to exercise and play whiffle ball. It was a good day.

I hope that everyone is having a great day.

Glad you are feeling better. Being back at work was quick wasn't it?

The chocolate on the Greek yoghurt is probably better for special occasions... my mum loved it every night .... that was when she was a bit lucid. Now she just is in a bed or day bed ... very sad - so I am glad she was able to enjoy it! She has Alzheimers.

Not a first bad day back to work. Fielded and made a few phone calls, took a few ad inserts or tomorrows deadline, sent out a good hundred e-mails.
Tomorrow is crunch time!
Feeling pretty darn good.
Tomorrow I do follow up.

OOOOH Your Greek yogurt with chocolate shavings sounds awfully tempting!

I like the Greek Yogurt too. It is not as sweet as the others. I had some for breakfast this morning, with some grapes and a special K bar.

I had a good day today. I did PE;I will doing this through Wed. Stayed on track today and went to exercise and they were closed. I think we might take a little walk tonight.

I hope that everyone else had a good day.

I love yoghurt - especially Greek yoghurt. I had some today with canned apricots. So nice. When my mum was living with us (she has Alzheimers and is now in care) I used to give her canned fruit, Greek yoghurt with grated chocolate on it ... she (and I) loved it! I would by flake chocolate bars and they would crumble so easily. YUM

Yup I don't like yogurt! And I am not eating much in the dairy group either! Trying to stick pretty close to the ETL guidelines. Diane

Good evening all. I have been missing. A couple of days in the garden after seeing my doctor on Friday and having a bone scan on my hip and back. This should show what is causing me the pain. I have been back on painkillers during and since my return from Thailand. Next Friday is my appointment with the doctor ... that and the sleep test... I feel as though I am falling apart! LOL

Well! This was just in my work email inbox! The day I left to go to out-patience I had e-mailed 100 e-mails sent out 200 faxes and walked around to almost all the businesses in Coronation with the invite to this Small business Booklet!

I just wonder what I'm in for come Monday!

Due to the overwhelming response to our Small Business Booklet, we have extended our deadline to Wednesday, October 24 and the Booklet will be inserted into the November 1 issue of the ECA Review. Anyone who would now like to be included in the Small Business Booklet due to the deadline change or would like me to send out more details about the Booklet, please let me know and I will get back to you.

well yesterday in my travels in grocery shopping I came across a new Special K product with whole grains. Doing the fat formula it is only 13% and because it was on sale 3/10$ I grabbed the three. This morning I mixed about three tablespoons into my Greek yogurt and honey. I love crunchy!
Grabbed a few different fruits too Got me more pineapple and a Papaya Starting to add more and more fruits with the most serotonin and digestive enzymes in them too.

Hey girls! Thanks. Finally had my first good night's sleep since coming home. I slept like a baby in hospital but once I was discharged it was like my body just wouldn't sleep. I'd lay awake until 2 and 3 in the morning before falling asleep for maybe three hours. Last night for the first time I was actually tired by 9 so listened to my body and went to bed. I fell asleep within the hour and slept for a good 8 hours, getting up once.

And because it wasn't a scheduled surgery and the way it happened without rhyme or reason and I was forced to leave to have it done and by ambulance to get me there. Once I was home now these tow days it was almost like I was disconnected. Day three and I'm finally feeling like I'm home again.
Yesterday I cleaned the master bedroom in steps, took the car uptown parked it and walked almost everywhere. My "tummy" was a little sore after all was said and done but I accomplished it. Very pleased with myself.
So now other than doing the bit of laundry and cleaning the bathroom the house is clean and in order and I can take the day as it comes.

Oh and the only reason I had to wait a day for my surgery once admitted was because they were backed up plus another emergency more urgent than mine came in. Otherwise I would have had mine as scheduled that first day. I suppose it depends on which province one lives in? I've never had to wait and have it when they say. Not even when I lived in Ontario all those years. Not when it's an emergency, especially life threatening.

LOL DAK! My sister is making sure I pretty much have next to nothing to do when it comes to the heavier chores. It's making me very restless however. But as long as I have SOMETHING to do.

Marion, I am sooo glad you are home. You answered one of my questions I asked you earlier. Where did you have your surgery and how far away did you have to go from the town you live in. I have heard that in Canada, that you might have to go as far as 300mi. to just get gallbladder surgery done. And that they chose when you could have it done. The people that told us this were from Nova Scotia. We met them one time when we were camping. I know by the way you talked about your belly button pinching that you had laproscopic surgery. I just plain old glad you are feeling better. I sure have missed seeing you on here. But in the meantime we have been keeping things going. '

I worked today in pre-school, They kept me busy and I really got my exercise in without having to go to a gym.

I hope that everyone had a great day.

In the meantime I'm just taking the day as it comes My sister is still here with me and doing the heavier household chores while I take care of the master bedroom!
Not much to do in there really other than to dust, sweep mop and put away the clean clothes which are at the moment piled on the bed, and make the bed.
In a few here we are headed up town for groceries and my Betty Crocker coffee pot! They are on sale for 30% off!
Just before I came home I hit the dollar store of all places and got most of my Betty Crocker utensils show pieces to hang. Slowly but surly I'm changing my kitchen over to my red and black Betty Crocker!
I also have a new-used wrought iron kitchen table and chairs! Second hand in mint condition free to a good home!

Well! I got to the hardware store and they were already sold out! They'd only ordered in two! DOH!
So I ordered one and then Joyce said order the toaster and blender too. So come the end of next week I'll have everything but my slow cooker which I can always get at a later date. And it's only 40.00. So for now instead of spending 160 I've saved 30% on three pieces and paid only 115. Some excited!

AND GOOD MORNING!!!!!!!!!
WE ARE HOME!
It's only been a week but it feels more like a life time!
I am doing wondrous!
And as great as I feel in mind body and spirit I am not returning to work until Monday.
The only discomfort I have is that my belly button pinches every once in awhile where they initially went in.
There is more to this story but of course I won't bore you with the details. It's just good to be back!

Well as I type I guess Grandma Sandy and Lynmeinders are asleep. I hope that you have had a good day. I did. I worked in Middle School today and yesterday. Good classes both days. Tomorrow, I will do pre-school Special Ed.-- My favorite. It will an exhausting day but I will enjoy every minute.

I went to visit with my Mama this afternoon and we shared a bag of popcorn. I miss not being able to pick up the phone and calling her at home. But she is much better in the assisted living than she was at home. I am not at all sorry I did it. One of the residents had fallen and broke a hip and he will be returning next week, so we made him a welcome home sign and you would have thought she was some kind of artist telling everyone where to put things on the poster board.

Marion, I hope you are doing well. Miss seeing you on here though. I hope you can get back soon.
