Kathy I so agree, where the heck have the day's gone? Sorry about the reno's taking so long. Hope it is done for Thanksgiving for you, BUT just think how beautiful it's going to look for CHRISTMAS emoticon emoticon Hanging in there emoticon
Mary, Bread and beer .....hope you had a nice big pot of stew to go with it. I think the plates have been going up every year it seems emoticon
Jo, Sorry to hear you are sore. What can you do for it or is it one of thoughts things you just put up with?
Sandi 12 hours of painting.....You go girl. emoticon
Well for me I'm still trying to get a routine going. Now that the cat needs a needle every 12 hours has made it a little more crazy. In time it will balance out. Animals are all needing so much attention emoticon Love them I do. Trying to get Tinker bells room to stay warm is crazy so looks like I need a small heater in there just for her. Gets much warmer for us we will all be in our birthday suits emoticon what a sight that would be.
So the only challenge working for me is not eating that chocolate at work! h and logging into spark. 2 good challenges I'd say.
Off to get the animals looks after, dinner set up for the guys and off to work. emoticon





Courage, compassion,love.....Life is good.

I'm stuck with the higher price too, since my license isn't due until the end of November, and when we got the new van a couple of months ago I was only allowed to buy a sticker that is good until my birthday, so feel like I'm being double whammied.

Apparently there was a fair bit of sanding accomplished downstairs today, but Meaganne says she doesn't think from what she saw, that it will be ready for priming before Wednesday or Thursday, so I guess that would mean painting won't be finished until sometime next week?

Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away ... how did that happen so fast - wasn't it just the beginning of July yesterday????

LOL didn't do either, fixed all my lanterns, ( Harv gave me an awesome one) then we went to town to get fresh bread and of course beer, stopped at Harv's to get my van we left it there on Friday.

Rain has stopped for now, looks like we will get rain the rest of the week, right through until Saturday.

Darn I never read the sticker replacement thing that came in the mail until this morning, I see if I had gotten the sticker before Sept 1st. it would have cost 108 now it is 120. emoticon

Well Mary, you KNOW what my answer would be, don't you! Reading a book wins out every single time!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Jo - How are your poor joints doing with all this rain? So far mine are not too bad, for a nice change.

Not much going on here today. The contractor is here right now hoping that all the mudding has finally dried enough to get all the sanding done so they can start doing the primer downstairs.

Mike has an appointment to get the new hearing aids checked out yet again- neither of them is working at all. Sooooo glad that we did NOT have to pay for the darn things since they have been nothing but one priblem after another since he got them last fall.

Good idea ladies, only I'd have to be able to book an appointment.
The last time I called to book one for Mike it ended up being 9 weeks later - our guy is only in the office 1 part day a week now, he primarily works out of different walk - in clinics around town these days. Apparently he makes way better money that way...

Mary - We are ALL tired of the renovations, not just poor Phoenix.

Meaganne and I got some assistance from the gal at the paint store, then brought the best choices back for Mike to pick from, so now have the paint colours all locked in for the basement. I think he'll end up much happier with these colours than with the ones he had originally chosen.

I guess Fall really has arrived - very chilly nights and early mornings too. We were so cold yesterday morning after leaving all the windows open, plus fans on too that we ended up putting the furnace on to take the damp and chill out of the house.

Friday was a pretty good day for me so was finally able to get a bunch of errands done and BEST OF ALL??? The contractor found my ring - almost halfway down the duct toward the furnace!

Emily was here for a couple of hours yesterday so that Jennifer could attend a funeral. The rest of the day was not so great, culminating in spending mush of the night in the loo with a major bout of grumpy innards again. Just resting / recovering today for the most part - doing a lot of sleeping.

We stopped in at the clinic on Friday to check Phoenix' weight because he lost an entire kilo over last weekend. He's picked up almost half of that lost kilo since Monday, so that's good, but there is still something going on with him that we can't figure out. His gums keep losing colour for no apparent reason which suggests blood pressure / heart / oxygen problems of some sort.... as usual with him it is a PUZZLE.

Hope everyone has enjoyed this last weekend in September! Hard to believe there are only 5 days before we're into October!

Hi gals...Mary I painted white for my porch today like your white trim....it looks amazing & CLEAN which was the purpose...I chose a Deep dark blue ...called north polar sea for the garage & decided to save some work & paint the trim on it the same...white grills around the garage windows will pop....front door is a lighter shade of blue that matches the shutters with white trim to match the storm door...Hoping the rest will be completed over the weekend.

Kathy, you sure have had the trials & tribulations with that reno...sure is taking them long for the painting...or is it all the inspection times that are holding things up... & losing a ring to boot..hope it gets found in the ductwork.

How are Phoenix & Meag doing? Hope the antibiotics are working & he is pain free....

Once you get back to a semblance of NORMAL life, your body will return to it too....it's telling you it has had ENOUGH of the upheaval....

Hi Jo, how come you moved the challenge from the 2cd stic ky note spot..harder for us to post without searching...

Evening ladies!

All the photos you've all been sharing are super!

White trim sounds lovely Mary - bet it really makes the window POP now.

Jo - Sorry to hear about your brakes but glad that they are fixed now so that you will be SAFE!!!

Judy - Sorry you ended up having to work on your day off. You should get a whole EXTRA day off to make up for it!!!

Sandi - What are you painting now? The garage and front doors? What colour did you choose?

So, here's the scoop in a sort of nutshell.......

I've been having what feels to me like almost never-ending bouts of really really grumpy butt along with grumpy gut at the same time, just to make me feel a whole lot better. This is something that I find very debilitating both physically and mentally - just plain exhausting!

Along with that, I've been having issues with the lower left leg and foot swelling again, which gets very painful. All of which means that my sleep quantity and quality have been truly awful so I have been even more tired than usual..... Food quality / quantity intake has also gone the route of the proverbial "to hell in a hand basket". See the picture? Everything has become a BIG CHALLENGE for me over the past few weeks.

Renovations ongoing and never ending have NOT helped either. At this point, the plan is to hopefully start priming the basement on Monday, then get at the actual painting on Tuesday. Electrical and plumbing down there still has to be finished before final inspections can be done. Maybe 2 - 3 more weeks or so before it's all over?

To top matters off, last Friday I was washing up before dinner and while drying my hands, the beautiful ring I just bought a couple of months ago flew off my hand went down the vent in the floor and we still haven't found it yet. The contractor is bringing some sort of gadget with him in the morning, in the hopes of being able to see it in the duct and fish it out.

Then on Monday morning, after having a rough weekend, we rushed Phoenix in to the clinic thinking that we were losing him. Meaganne was a complete basket case, with me not much better. It all happened so FAST!!! After doing a whole barrage of x-rays, blood work, other tests and spending nearly $850, he came home on anti-biotics and an added extra daily pain medication.

We're still not really sure what was happening with him, but we have a bunch of things that we know now were NOT the problem..... He definitely has some sort of infection, but the vets aren't sure just where it is.

That along with the several other very expensive out of nowhere surprises recently, means that (if my math is correct) we're going to be somewhere in the area of $5,500 short when it comes to the final payment for the renos, and will have to leave off on the couple of other small projects we wanted to have the contractor do. Just makes me sick thinking about this, I thought we had left a good sized safety net in place to cover any unforseen expenses, but Murphy's Law and Life happened.

Sorry, this ended up being a rather large 'nutshell', but I wanted to explain why I haven't been around - just have not had the energy to post.

On a positive note - Meaganne's birthday on the 4th was incredible. I had tickets for the 2 of us to go see Celtic Thunder at Centennial Hall. She's never been to a live concert before, and loved it. I wasn't sure I would be able to make it until a couple of hours before show time, but my insides behaved thank goodness!!!!!! It was one of the BEST live performances I've ever been too - on a par with The BeeGees and Beach Boys concerts I went to years ago, I think.

Hi Gals,

Jo, is your car working better? I know about brakes...you have my sympathies....

Judy, sounds like you are getting run down & over stressed...when is YOUR Judy time?

Hi Kathy! Things must be perking right along...it's almost October ...how's the reno doing?

I had my WT gal back today...she waited until class was over as I stated as we started & then showed me photos of her & her son in their body building poses...incidentally, the co-ordinator showed up 10 minutes before class ended & she proceeded to show him too...He asked when they were taken, & she stated 17 years ago...I asked why she hadn't continued & she said she lost her husband ...she is attempting to find herself she says...

A client brought me a praline treat from New Orleans today...Think I'll add it to tomorrows tracking!!!

Taping is complete...I begin painting rain or shine tomorrow beginning with the front door...I can use the screen door in case the heavens open up...

Well Jack just had his first shot and some food. Blood test was really good other than diebities. Can't believe I'll be doing this needle thing to the poor guy twice a day.

Hey hey hey - ladies I am still alive... barely emoticon emoticon emoticon

For now let me just say that the last 4 or so weeks have NOT been at all good for me - physically, mentally or financially. Stress levels have been some of the highest I have experienced in a good many years.

That's all for right now, will fill you all in later - we're just heading out for some dinner. Be back later

Hi Y'all,
Hope you are getting your batteries charged up today...no pun intended, Mary....wished you were coming too....there is still time to change your mind...could pick you up in London if that would help...I'm putting me first & giving myself tomorrow...weather will be incredible for outside activities, I will take my OWN healthy cooler lunch & enjoy the music, motivation & alzheimer tributes & education.

My blog today will focus on the subject....

I can ALWAYS paint another day....

The battery problem is---------- we need new batteries to be charged by solar ours are just not taking a charge to the fullest right now. We just had the truck all fixed and there will be no money for batteries until the end of the month.

Sandi, as of today, I am not sure I can make the trip, I would love to buttttttttt.

Sorry Sandi my day's off are now Thursday's as I have no one that can do Wednesday's. So is maintaining a part of the challenge we have going?
Jo can you PLEASE put on your snow suit emoticon to keep warm. Really where has September gone? Fall begins tomorrow.....My favorite time of year.
Mary did you get the battery figured out?
Ok so it is a little harder to get into a routine then I thought.Enjoying the fact that the basement is staying clean. Now to get Lucas to clean up after himself a little better. Now just to get my kitchen organized!!
So I was going to paint my treadmill room........googled for the best color to do it in for what i'm using it for.........RED/ emoticon So thinking of how to add things to it so I don't have so much of it.
Must run to take the cat to the vet. Can't believe I have a cat with diebeties. emoticon

So Mary, are you going to stand me up too on Wed.? No worries, I went alone last winter so I can do another solo trip.... emoticon I promised myself I would go since I like the concept of a lunch outdoors & healthy motivation too...it benefits the Alzheimers Day with donations if you choose it...also means I'm back in the early afternoon by dinner to pick up the hubby...I'm considering it my SELF HEALTHY HELP trip...& there is music too!

Haven't heard from Kathy, so I doubt she is interested....as for Judy...you mentioned you already had a day off so what are the chances for Wed. off?

Had to look over Montana's menu as we are meeting my cousin for dinner there.tonite..at my hubby's suggestion...anyway with my WI tomorrow, I'll be choosing well...been in maintenance for 3 weeks & want to stay there....All my sanding is complete now so I'm ready for Friday painting, weather permitting...

Good evening ladies emoticon

Must say the traffic was crazy today with the air show. Jo hope you got to see it. I Had a day to myself....... DH helping a friend and Lucas out working at friends farm.

Well no more excuses for me......carpet has been cleaned and my treadmill is set up ready. I will get my things set up for a morning walk and a good stretch in the morning. Trying hard to not try to do everything TODAY. A little each day is all that is needed now.

So this is my second hand family room and I....... LOVE IT !!!!!



And this is Sam baby sitting Tinkerbell emoticon love this dog.
Time to settle in for the night. emoticon

Hi Everyone....

You must be outdoors today...Arms are sore from exercise & sanding....more sanding tomorrow...21/2 hrs. along with my movement was enough today...Guess it will look
worse before it gets better...debating garage trim colour...whether to stick with white or change to front door colour...porch will remain white...I have too tones of blue for front & garage...

Bigger job than I bargained for....my painter dodged me...he had to go & get married this month...& then catch up with his regular painting jobs....

looking forward to Brantford for a trip away!!!!

hi y'all! Sorry jo, sure your air show will be rained out!

good sleep mary! Bet you feel great now to get that extra exercise in! emoticon

I managed a 3.75 mile walk to the store to get a newspaper with my umbrella before the downpours came...Also did a class work out this am...& 20 lbs. of applesauce simmered...this afternoon I tried a new yoga video with a yoga block & strap to help me...I am still so tight through back & hamstrings...one downfall of being long legged, I think... need this help because I'm struggling with my PiYo program...includes mane plank variations & positions...I'll get there but man is it a slow process....

needless to say, there was no sanding on today...pushing for tomorrow!!!

Morning .............what a beautiful fall day! I see the humidity returns tomorrow for a few more day's. UGG I'm so done with the heat.
Well tinkerbell is settling in now that she is a little warmer. Trying to get her room a little warmer so found she needed my heating pad under her floor this morning.
Septic is done already, basement is cleaned out ready for the carpets to be cleaned. Been busy since 5 am. Should sleep well tonight. Did sleep thought the night last night. First time in a very long time.
Chat later. emoticon
