Hi Jo...so good to hear from you again and surely am praying for those family needs.
You sound as if you're getting some good family support with your weight loss plan so carry on doing that and succeeding.

We are all now using Chat thread 3...so next time hope to see you there too.

Martha I am in agreement about Sam's club. Most things are cheaper on sale at the grocery store.
I did belong for a time when I used cartridges for a printer which were much cheaper and also when my husband used depends they were much cheaper. Now I don't even think about going. Too much walking also.

My sister and I got together today and went to Sam's Club and had a fun time. This is a place that is meant for large families, gatherings or institutions to buy large quantities of items. We bought a few things and then divided them, saving anywhere from 1 to 2 dollars per item. I was disappointed with most of their prices, can get better sales elsewhere on most items. The best sales was food products, mainly the frozen section of the store.

I did get more sleep last night so maybe the shot is wearing off.

Ann, that little boy IS very smart, he already knows how to get his way at home but I think he's finding out that it doesn't work away from home. Too many parents just don't discipline anymore and that's doing the child a disservice.

Well this morning I had two appointments at the surgery. One with the doctor about some moles that are actually warts and will be removed in a couple of weeks and then a smear test with the nurse! What an exciting morning!! lol. Meanwhile Joseph hoovered the whole flat and later I did a sizable pile of ironing...!!

Well Martha I was wide awake at 5am too this morning and just got up!! It seems so light to me now that sometimes I can't sleep on...
Hope your cactus growing takes off...never thought of doing that!
I think a team definitely needs dedicated members to make a team...leaders? Two a penny!! lol!! Present company accepted of course!!
Do you know those terms? (Just my bit of fun!!)

Brenda,,,WTG with those spark points!! I used to be mad about getting them too but I suppose I got lazy!! lol

Irene, although painful that must have been an utter relief!!!

SADIE YOU ARE RIGHT, HALF THE YEAR GONE...WHERE DID IT GO??? PRAYING FOR GOOD RESULTS ON JUNE 7TH. SEEMS LIKE JUNE IS TESTING TIME...I HAVE 3 APPOINTMENTS!!

Ann, I agree the little boy will adjust. Those adults are just making life hard for him but I suppose it makes life easier for them! But oh so difficult for you all at the nursery!!

Almost the weekend...once again, and tomorrow is the first day of June! Where did the year go? We have 3 toddlers that will be moving up soon, probably the end of June. During June they will be transitioning. The two girls won't have any problem moving up but the boy is fighting it. He wants things done the way he thinks they should be and doesn't like change. At home he pretty much has the adults (parents and grandparents) catering to his every whim so when he doesn't like something he screams. That apparently gets a good response for him at home but we don't cater to him at school. He is very smart too. When he sees the next class outside he knows that means he will be taken out to play with them so he takes his shoes off. I suppose he thinks that if he doesn't have on shoes he won't be able to go outside. After a bit of a struggle we manage to get his shoes back on and then carry him outside while he is screaming as loud as he can. Eventually he will adjust.

That was a long time ago JANET and it was miserable. It was on a Sunday and I realized while in church I had not gone to the bathroom for a long time. I drank more water thinking I just need to go to the BR didn't realize it was a kidney stone. Oh, my, The doctor called in a prescription for an antibiotic so I went out to buy it. Charles couldn't drive by then and when I got home I had to hold my stomach as it was filled with urine and just sat on the stool and whoosh out it came. I heard it drop. My stomach went down right away.

Martha I thought about the football blacking too. Theirs is for keeping the glare down from the stadium lights...lol I think if I went out I would feel like I was under inspection of any ione who sees me,,...lol It stings when ever I touch it or try to 'Itch' it. and the lump is STILL there !

I earned over 80 points today with help from something about another 30 days...I can use all the help I can get...

Sadie I hope your tests come out good for you today.

Still hasn't rained here, we really need it!
Went to WalMart this morning, got a few groceries. We also went to Lowes, their potted plants are EXPENSIVE! I did get a Christmas cactus and an Aloe to add to my house plants. I will be starting some cactus from seed, which should be a fun project. I did get a little more sleep last night, maybe almost 5 hours but was wide awake a 5 this morning so instead of fighting it, I just got up, lol.

Brenda, when I saw your picture on FB my first thought was a Raccoon, lol. Also, you know how football players put that black smudge under their eyes, maybe you could use that as an excuse, Just playing a little football and forgot to wash it off emoticon

SADIE, I HOPE YOUR TEST REPORTS THAT IT'S ALL GONE! AND YOU DO NEED TO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THAT IF YOU DRINK LOTS OF TEA IT CAN CAUSE KIDNEY STONES?

Nellie, you are smart to do just a little mowing at a time, you could still feel a little sore just starting but it's good exercise.

I went back to NE AR Spark team but not as a leader but as a member. As a member I'm not kicking myself for nothing going on and I did miss them because the are my neighbors. This is what I wrote to them.
'I was thinking earlier, a good team is only as good as it's members. The members keep it going and interesting, so the way I see it, do we need a leader or do we need members that take an active and interested part?'
This is what I like about the Christian Women Over 65 team, everyone posts almost daily and makes it a very interesting team. This way we get to know each other and genuinely care about each other.

Today's weather has been grey and chilly so I was glad to get back home again and start cooking lunch to warm us up. I had a nice container of chilli beans I made a few days ago in the fridge...just right!
Had one of my grandsons for a while yesterday afternoon so went to the park and we played football with a pine cone...grandma scored 3 goals!! lol

Martha, sorry you are lacking sleep...is it any better now? Glad the rash is in it's last throws!
Joseph is growing strawberries and herbs in containers and he's just planted some tomato seeds...we only have a small balcony though.

Ann, I think Joseph will go back to the gym when he's over his cough...
I think the heat makes us all fussy, not just babies!! Hope you felt rested up too. Hope the little boy is able to assimilate the necessary changes coming...

Brenda I'm sure those good habits will help you with your diabetes.
Poor you that bruise looks very nasty but it will soon go and then you'll be back in the pool again, just being more careful!!

Nellie, good for you attempting the mowing again!! I couldn't do that at all at the moment.

SADIE PRAYING THAT CT SCAN WENT ALRIGHT AND ALSO YOUR APPOINTMENT FOR NEXT WEEK.

Oh Irene that was the way to pass a stone...didn't like the sound of your swollen stomach though!!

Sadie hope the stone dissolved. I had one and it kept me from urinating and my stomach was getting bigger and bigger and I finally had to hold it up with my hands. When I did go it rushed out and the stone with it.
What a relief.

It not my yard, but my daughter's. It is not huge, but I got one side of the driveway done, and will do the other side tomorrow. After that I will tackle the little hill and then the backyard. I know that Catherine's boyfriend who is supposed to find another place to live now, mows it all in one day, but I told Catherine I would do the mowing once he is gone. Since he didn't mow over the week end, I figured I would warm up my mowing muscles.

Brenda---You are doing so well...keep it up! It may be hard losing the weight with diabetes but don't give up. The more you do to try to improve your health the better you will feel and you probably will see some good results also.

Martha---Hope that sleep problem works itself out soon. Glad the rash is gone and you are now healing. I have done some container gardening. It works well with some plants but you do have to water them more often. I have found that the small varieties of tomatoes work well in containers.

Nellie---Mowing takes a lot of energy! I know...I have to mow my lawn since I have no one to do it and can't afford to pay anyone. How big is your yard?

Sadie---Hope that CT scan shows that the stone has been passed.

It was warm again today but not as warm as it has been. We were able to take the older babies outside for a while. They really needed it as they were a bit fussy again. Lots of them are teething again. One little boy is almost 18 months old and will be moving up to the next class in July. Right now he is transitioning which means he spends a little time with the next class everyday but he does not like the change. Today when we took him out to play with that class he screamed most of his time with them. Finally our lead teacher brought him back to the nursery. He is really going to have a difficult time making the change.

I like to plant my tomatoes in containers, so I can extend the bearing season by a little. When it gets cold, I bring them inside.

Today I did a little mowing. Wow, it is harder than I remembered. I guess my mowing muscles haven't had practice in a while!

I am getting more exercise because of the sacra problem, and that's a good thing, mainly walking at a quick pace on the treadmill. My pattern of sleeping since I got that shot is, when I first go to sleep at night I sleep hard for a couple of hours and then I'm wide awake, just like last night, OH MY! The rash is gone except for the discoloration where it was and some dry skin.
We did get a little rain and it looks like maybe we will get a little more. First thing this morning I fertilized everything in hopes it would dissolve with the rain. Did I mention that I am using my little greenhouse, here in the house, for house plants. At least in here I won't have squirrels or voles emoticon I'm considering going more with container gardening outside in the future, don't think the voles could climb into the pots!

Janet---So sorry Joseph wasn't able to do anything at the gym, especially after having to walk so far. Hope that doesn't happen again. Enjoy that new skirt!

Martha---Sorry you aren't sleeping well. Have the steroids helped any with that rash? I do hope so!

Back to work today. It would have been nice to have one more day off. It was quite warm today, too warm by the time we would normally take the babies outside so they stayed in. They all seemed fussy and tired today anyway. Most of the them went down for a nap before lunch time. We didn't have all of them today which was good since they were so fussy.

So far today, no sacroiliac pain! I have found a way to adjust it myself so between that and the shot, things might be getting better!
Ann, it always nice meeting someone from your past that you haven't seen in years, so good finding what has been going on in their life. I have been having the opposite problem that you have, I haven't been sleeping much at night and none in the daytime. I read this morning that lack of sleep is one of the side effects of steroid shots. I eventually will get a good night's sleep again. emoticon
It was so good today being # 7 on the Huddle Wall emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone, I ran out of time yesterday sorting boxes etc!
Joseph went to the gym today but because they checked his B/P and it was high they wouldn't let him exercise. It's probably because of his cough which is a bit chesty now and also he walked a long way to the gym because the bus went passed his stop!! Meanwhile I was having my eyebrows threaded...anybody had that done? Can't say it's without pain! Ouch! And I found a new skirt...nice! Less heat today and I appreciated that!

Ann it sounds to me that you were suffering from pure exhaustion, glad you got some extra rest and a day off too.

Nellie got you managed to get your cat and didn't injure yourself. PTL! Please be careful!

Brenda, that bruising will pass and you will soon feel yourself again. I've had bad bruises from falls too but thankfully not on anywhere that ever showed!!

Martha your day with your sister sounded really nice and home cooking is simply the BEST!!

Irene, I need to go and read your latest blog about how you're doing...

Glad you all had a peaceful and quite w/e.

A little while ago, I discovered my really old kitty had gotten up on the top level of my bunk bed (I use the top part to store bedding), and I know that she has difficulty getting down. She had gotten to an area where it would be hard for me to get her, but I needed to give her her medicine soon. I prayed for God to help me, so I could get it done without hurting her or me!

He answered my prayer since I was able to extract her from the box into which she had gotten and I lowered her to my bed. Then I got her medicine and gave it to her!

I didn't do anything special this weekend. Saturday was a day of running errands, mowing the lawn and other yard work. Yesterday I felt really tired from the time I woke up so ended up taking two naps. Today I had more energy. I puttered around in the garden this morning, then went to buy a new pedometer. I ran into an old friend in the parking lot and we spent some time catching up with each other. This lady was the director of the first preschool where I taught. I enjoyed working with her for 12 years. It was good seeing her again. This afternoon I did some laundry and watched part of the movie "Roots." Will have to watch the rest another time.

Brenda, a close long time g/f who lives near me fell on her face a few years back and had raccoon eyes and also broke her nose and scratched her chin.
The last time she fell she broke her foot and was in assisted living for a month as she wasn't supposed to be on her feet.
Now she is out and went on a trip and is having a great time. A girl friend is doing the driving. I fear she is overdoing it. She checks in with me every evening.
That too shall pass Brenda.
Thank you for reading some of my blogs. God bless you. When I grow up I want to be like Jesus. He is still working on me.

I can see your point Brenda, I'm also sensitive about teasing and making hubby look bad. When Donnie fell flat on her face, her whole face was black so she wore heavy makeup when she went to the Nursing Home, didn't want to scare anyone. Her bruises didn 't last long.

We had a good dinner and visit with my sister today, I think she wants to do it more often. emoticon she said that's the only way she will get a home cooked meal.

I hope everyone had a good Holiday!

Nellie---It's good to know that pointing the toes forward is good for legs. I have always walked that way. My mother thought it was strange since everyone else in my family pointed feet outward when walking. Glad to know I have been doing something right all of these years!

The past couple of weeks caught up with me today. I woke up feeling exhausted and felt that way all day. Took 2 naps today and feel a bit better tonight. I have tomorrow off thankfully. That will allow for one more day of rest.

I meant that as you walk, your toes should point forward, rather than slightly out. That way all the muscles of the legs are balancing properly for your knees. This is important for regular walking and for climbing stairs. My PT had me practice over and over making sure the toes were pointing forward. I still have to watch that I do that since if I don't think about it, I tend to point them slightly out.

Brenda you made my day when you wrote you were reading the devotions.
God bless you, heal you and use you for His honor and His glory. I went to your page and saw it was set to private and to see your page I had to add you as a friend. I just did that. That was a terrible fall Brenda. One day I slid on my walk in shower floor and couldn't get up. The girl had cleaned the day before and don't know what she used but it was sure slick. I finally had to call 911. I had my cell within reach and they had to damage my door to get in. I have given some keys out since then. It was quite embarrassing to just have a towel I could grab on my front but they sent a lady out with the men and she helped me cover up and got my robe for me.

Hi everyone, blessed day here and enjoyed a lovely walk in the park this afternoon. Happened to see a couple of very old friends in the park too so was lovely to sit at the cafe and catch up after so many years! The sunshine was as hot as ever...I gather it's due to change next week!

Brenda, I'm so sorry to hear about your fall at the fall. I think generally those changing rooms tend to be too small...praying your bruises all heal up quickly! And well done for your consistency with SparkPeople!!

Martha, enjoy those fresh veggies...nothing like home grown, I'm missing ours this year.

Ann, lovely to hear your great success at the open day. I too wish I could have been there to see it all. Hope those B/Ts come back with good results.

Nellie, sounds like good advice for knee sufferers, thank you!

SADIE, YES I REMEMBER YOUR FALL, GLAD YOU'RE MORE CAREFUL NOW, I THINK WE ALL NEED TO BE WATCHFUL OF THAT NO MATTER HOW OLD WE ARE.

Hope Irene is having a good w/e too.

Brenda, so glad you aren't hurting to bad and that you will continue at the pool, just watch where you put your feet emoticon

Our neighbor gave us some squash and green beans fresh out of her garden so my sister is coming over tomorrow to help us eat them. No outdoor cooking, just good everyday food.

Open house is over and was a great success. We had nearly all of the babies' families come last night. The parents were surprised and thrilled to see the art work done by their children. It was a lot of work but well worth it. The day was long and exhausting; The older kids gave a little concert before the parents viewed the classrooms. They also quoted some of the Bible verses they have been learning during chapel. The parents loved it of course. I got home about 8:30 last night ready to drop!

This morning I went to the clinic to have some blood drawn for routine tests. Next Saturday I see the doctor. This afternoon I mowed my lawn and did some other yard work. It was a cool day, good for working outside. Also had to do some grocery shopping and other errands today so it has been another long day. Maybe tomorrow I will get some rest.

Brenda---What an awful fall you took! Hope the knocks on your head didn't cause too much damage...did they check for concussion? Be careful in that stall!

One good thing with the hip thing is, I'm exercising again to strengthen those muscles over the sacrum to help keep it from going out.

Daughter and her husband came for a visit and she brought her Ninja blender and make some healthy peach ice cream. Nice for a change.

It's HOT here and so dry! After seeing Barb's blog I made a bird water dish from a round glass cake pan, put it on a clay flower pot. The birds don't care, they just need a drink.

Found out another idea to repel rodents, deer or bunnies. GARLIC in any form, I'll let you know if it works.

Sparks is sure slow today!

nothing planned here for the weekend either.
I took another fall on Wednesday. emoticon I had gotten outa the pool after 2&1/2 hours and had my shower, and gotten iinto a dressing stall and laid down a towel to keep from sliiding on the floor when I tookk off my swim shoes. Stood up to dry myself after taking off my shoes and fell forward into the wall of the stall. Couldn't get up! emoticon At first I had to fight to get sat up to unlock the door so someone could get in! THEN no one COULD get in. AND they called 911! Well, they hadda pull me out on the towel iwas sitting on...II had a huge 'goose egg' on my forehead, and a small one in my eybrow,(both on the right). Another on the left TOP of my head, and ANOTHER to the right of my crown! and a scraped knee! WHEW! And NOW? The blood from the bruising in my forehead has drifted (like the doc said it would) and COMPLETELY covers my right eye...I would scare any little kids that might show up! Sooo I am staying home this weekend. emoticon
But I CAN report that I have gotten TWO days of a full 8 glasses of water this week---took me long enought to achieve that.
I have logged in over 40 days in a row, and have managed 2 days/week at the pool for the last 2 weeks- Monday and wednesday- for a total of 14 hours.
I couldn't find you guys for a couple days and wasn't getting any notices of posts from this page..
I HAVe been reading more articles and getting more points for reading and taking quizzes, too. So I am just a liitle bit proud of myself. emoticon
I DID use my diabetes as an excuse to get outa the E.R. quiker on Wed.eve.I told them it was time foor this diabetic to have her dinner!

I am remembering that when I got physical therapy for my knees, the guy emphasized that I should point my toes forward. Evidently many people tend to toe out some to maintain their balance, but it puts stress on the knees. So for knee pain, be sure to point toes forward!

Maintaining.

Jeff and I have nothing special planned for over the week end. We will stay here and enjoy the yard that the Lord has given us. I will do my garden and yard work and Jeff has already gotten the yard mowed. It is too hot to get out and run and the heat really is hard on Jeff. He gets worn out so easily. We will play each day by ear and do what we feel like when we feel like it.

The Lord is my tower and my strength!

Been out walking by the sea this morning. There was a very high wind but blue skies and lots of families on the beach...think the sea looked very cold but a few brave souls were in there!! It's fun to be able to show Joseph these places.

SADIE, SOUNDS LIKE YOU GET ALL YOUR HEALTH CHECKS, THAT IS THE BEST WAY TO BE I THINK.
YOU HAVE A FINE W/E TOO...WE DON'T HAVE THAT CELEBRATION OVER HERE BUT HAVE THE QUEEN'S DIAMOND JUBILEE COMING UP AT THE BEGINNING OF JUNE SO THAT WILL BE PUBLIC HOLIDAYS FOR EVERYONE.

Martha, I don't like the word 'can't 'either!! Glad to hear you're starting to improve. You hip sounds...ouch!!

Ann, it sounds like such a pleasant day you have in store for the parents, makes me want to come and visit! Hope this day is a good one for all!

I'm feeling much better today, thank the Lord. My hip tried to go out a couple of times but I found a way to stretch that seems to help and usually stops it. The rash is doing much better and I haven't been tired today so I got the rest of my shopping done. When a person can usually do whatever they want to do, it's hard when you can't. I'm not good at 'can't'.

Have you got any plans for Memorial Day? We usually stay home because the traffic is terrible on this weekend.

Martha

Today was a school run day and having my grandsons after school. I so enjoy that time and I hope they do too! It was nearly 80 degrees today, way too hot for me...I'm not liking that heat at all.

SADIE, GENERALLY FOLK HAVE NO NEED OF AIR IN THEIR HOMES. GENERALLY THE WEATHER IS RAINY OR CLOUDY AND NOT TOO MUCH SUNSHINE.
SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A WORKING PLAN THERE WITH YOUR DOCTOR, HAVE YOU BEEN TO HER FOR SEVERAL YEARS?

Praying for you dear Martha that you'll get well again soon. Hugs

Irene, I'm hoping and praying that this back issue with be short lived. The key is plenty of rest but I'd rather be up and doing I'm afraid.... Sorry you are in so much pain with your knees!

Ann, praying today is a total success and you really impress all the parents that attend.
