Hi all! Hope everyone had a great Easter! CBevNow, your menu sounds very similar to what we had yesterday at my mom's and then and my mom-in-laws - lots of ham this year. Back on the wagon today, I guess :)

Hope you all have a good week - I have it off and am planning to read, get to the gym every day as ususal, and wash my windows :) I have Spring Fever something terrible :) emoticon

Are any of you having any thing special to eat for Easter? What will you be cooking, or eating out?

My menu is not all kidney friendly, but I try to do ingredients, that are. I am cooking for family and always get requests for foods.
Pork Loin, Green Beans, Broccoli Casserole, Cheesy Pot., Salad, Pickled Eggs and Beets.
Chocolate Pie and Banana Pudding.

Im starting to take control of my life today. I will take care of me, love my self., be good to my self, I am strong, i can do this.

Claire I hope you are able to get the dental work done before insurance is dropped.. Dental is so expensive.
glad you are enjoying the volunteer work, a good way to meet and make new friends. I hope your weekend is a good one.

Teeth - ugh. I just started a crown yesterday. Trying to get as much done now as DH's company is dropping dental coverage in a couple months. This is a company with record profits this year.

Been volunteering A LOT at the Humane Society. They had their biggest annual fund raiser this past weekend and I was helping in the office cutting up raffle tickets and typing lists of donated goods for the silent auction, etc. this week is the mop up. I haven't worked in 9 years (holy cow! - where did this phrase come from??) so it's been good to sink my hands into something even if it's stuffing envelopes.

Hi guys!

I am still busy with mom and dad, school and of course my hubby recovering from surgery +. He has been to the dentist for ONE tooth four times this month, and I also took him for tests one day. Been too crazy with homework, but love the learning!

In one year I will be done with my bachelors! yea!

Off to more dr appointments today and grocery shopping!

Love your kidneys!

Hi,every one, so sorry I have been off for a while. this new computer with windows 8 is so different, and then my husband gets on here and its always a disaster after he gets off. My son bought me a android tablet so I'm learning to use it also. I'm not that computer literate.
It has been so nice out side here and then the temp starting dropping tonight. I had to put the heat back on to get the chill off.
My son left for Florida today for the annual music festival they have every year. His phone has been ringing and ringing, Old friends calling him. I was going to go and visit with my other son, but the old Osteoarthritis starting acting up, so I stayed home.
Took my sweet Lexy (Shar Pei) to the vet today. All her annual shots were due, plus I went ahead and got her allergy shot, and snake bite shot, she is so good never makes a whimper, and they all just love her sweetness. cost 184.00 dollars, a good thing I had been saving some money so I had some extra. I still am looking for a cooking range, I guess I will go to Home Depo for one I saw I liked. I have been using c pot,, electric skillet, and a 2 burner electric burner.
Nothing like roughing it LOL
Since the cut in the Federal Budget, my husband being a US Marshall will possibly be cut some hours, I don't understand how they can do this since its law enforcement. go figure, our government out, I sure cant.
Have a good day and evening.

I'm lucky that way 'cause my husband's a mechanic and he does all the mechanical work on our vehicles - I know it hurts to shell out that cash tho!

My hubby worries about his blood work every month too - it's like waiting for weigh-in day for me - I behave the last few days before weigh in - he reduces his protein/potassium, etc. before his monthly blood work. Bad boy!! Because he's on dialysis now, his diet's not nearly as restricted as it was, but he still gets a call from the dietician.


It'll be okay - just do your best before, and after, your bloodwork. Sometimes that's more important than what the scale says. emoticon

My parents celebrated Christmas a lot. We have several September birthdays.

Today, I'm taking the car in for new shocks. We out it off for almost a year, but it's getting obvious so time to fork over the cash.

I'm getting blood drawn for my nephrologist appt next week. I don't even want to go. I'm so far off the diet and I've gained 15 lbs since I saw her last.

Oh my goodness!! Must have been something in the water - lol That's what we say at our house. Thanks so much for the birthday wishes for my kids - they both had good days and we're so thankful that they're both happy, healthy kids. I ate too much, but what's new? Back on the wagon today :) Have a great day everyone!

Hi everyone! TGIF!! Hope you all have a great weekend! It'll be a challenge for me as we're having a party for both of our kids - my son's 18 on Sunday, and my daughter was 16 on Wednesday. I'm cooking dinner tho, so at least will have some control over what's on the buffet table :) Take care! emoticon

Claire, I'm so jealous! We got about 4 inches of snow overnight - lol It's warm and sunny now tho and most of the snow is gone already. Crazy weather, and willl probably continue into mid-April. Oh well, should be used to it by now. I love the smell of fresh air in the spring!

It's a beautiful day in Phoenix. I've got my windows open for this preciously short period of time when it's not too cold and not too hot. The air is so clean after a couple days of some also very precious rain fall, it smells wonderful.

Claire, I had Ducky's address and lost it. I miss her so much, I would love to know how she is doing.
Today it has rained all day here, cloudy and dark. My dog Lexy did not want to go out, and she loves the outdoors.
I think I will make chili today, even though I cant eat much of it, but the men can and they love it.
Every one have a great day. emoticon emoticon

Thanks guys!

I thought it was time to update it - this one reflects our name.

I am starting new classes this week.

I need to clarify that Don had surgery not my dad. Don will be off work for the next 5 weeks.

Now that I am sleeping better, I need to get back on track with exercise everyday.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Love your kidneys!
Jean

The month of March - don't you see that as a challenge?! Every time I think of the month's name, I'm gonna march in place for a couple minutes(unless I'm in a public place where people will think I'm out of my mindů)

Have a healthy, calm weekend, everyone.
