All is well here. I went on a job interview this morning. It is a plant nursery that is right down my ally. I think it went well. We shall see.

I use my crockpot all the time. The rest of the time, I use my 12" toaster oven. I only use my regular oven if I'm baking something - which happens maybe once every 6 months or so.

Today has been a trying day. Trying to walk or limp i should say with a bad knee and a sore heel. The knee brace i have to remove ever so often and just rest, for it causes pain. Does any one ever remember what we use to call a stone bruise. Well that is what my heel feels like , its on the same side as the knee which is hurting, so may be its just the way i have to walk.
I walked to the mail box and Lexy was with me not on a leash and she wanted to walk and play but i tried and just couldn't do it. Bless her heart , she doesn't understand.
I have been using my Crock Pot a lot this summer, and its wonderful, i can make so many things in it. Does any one else use a Crock Pot. I am on my 3rd one, i have used one for years. For any one who can eat Oats or maybe your family can, buy the Steel Cut Oats, cook them overnight in Crock Pot on low and your breakfast is ready.
Enjoy the day. emoticon

Claire - I so understand!

Caroline - I am going to check her out and see if the library carries her book. I do not like to buy books any more. I have a kindle but would prefer to check out books.

I was suppose to cut grass today - rain rain rain. Working inside today doing laundry and cleaning.

BOOK_____I want to tell every one about this great book i bought about CKD. It is a awesome book and i believe, even if you have had CKD for a while, or know quite a bit about your CKD, this book is very, very helpful. I am about half way through it, i was going to wait until after i read it through before telling you about this book, but i believe it is so good you might wait to order it.
NAME----What Is It and How Did I get I? Early Stage Chronic Kidney Disease
WHERE----I ordered it from Amazon.com.
COST---- about 11.00 to 13.00 dollars
BY---Gail Rae
Some things in this book, i have experienced and i think a lot of you have also. It has a very good Glossary in it. And she writes like she is talking to us, with this disease. She is on Face Book and i have started Chatting with her, She has a B.A.and a M.A. from Hunter College her site on FB is the name of this book.. This book is from the experience she went through when told she had CKD, she is much like us.
I think i will do a Blog on this for other people with Kidney Disease on SP.

Claire some men are just like this. I posted on your blog, about some of this.
Example of Hubby--- 2 years ago i was in Florida, visiting my son and family, i was gone about a month. When i got home he had burnt the inside of my microwave, popping pop corn , and it has a setting for this. He just put in in and turned it on and it caught on fire. My stove is the flat top electric range, he had set some thing on 2 burners while they were still hot, and it burned into the burners. So if i would leave now , what would happen, maybe he will damage the refrigerator, i would like a new one. LOL
I am not husband bashing, some men just dont know how ( or they dont want to know how) or dont want to do it. Both my sons are great cooks and house keepers.

I'm finally back home and have cleaned the house enough that I can stand to walk and cook in it! (Why does MY husband have to fit the non-cleaning stereotype??!!)

Exercise always helps me as it gives me time to think. If you can, finish your degree as you can get a good job not just something to get by with. You will have a better job if you love what you do.

run run run... days fly by... I feel like I am in a whirl wind and cannot get out.

So much to do and not enough time. A lot of medical stuff this month and I am looking for a job. It is either a job or return to school to finish my degree - which was put off last August due to my hubby's back surgery.

I feel so restless and cannot seem to make decisions right now - I feel sad and depressed.

I am OFF to pick myself up and get some exercise.
I hope everyone has a good day.
God Bless you!

I'm leaving Michigan for Phoenix tomorrow (well, today in about 8 hrs)! Love to visit, but it's been over a month and I want to sleep in my own bed! I miss my honey and my kitties, too.
