We had a beautiful Monday in Omaha! Got out for a 40 minute walk tonight and really enjoyed the fresh air.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Yeah for the rain (and the non-leaking issue)! We've gotten some rain but we definitely could use more. I'm hoping that it sticks to the night-time hours since we have plenty of outdoor work that needs done. Hubby spent a few hours today cleaning out and re-arranging the garage. Definitely looks better out there!

We've gotten some much needed rain the last couple weeks. 1 1/2 last night and nearly that much a week ago. Was glad to see the wind in the direction this time that does NOT make the roof leak. emoticon
Worked in the lawn a little yesterday but didn't do much today, it was cloudy and chilly all day. Finally got out about 6 and took a 50 min. walk.

I had two dogs who were litter mates. One of them was hit by a car and killed when they were 7 or 8 and I thought the surviving dog may have a problem but he never really did. We let him in the house more than we had the two of them so he didn't get lonely. He didn't like to walk in the direction of the accident for awhile but that was about it.

Yeah, these two don't really like being apart. The newest one has chewing issues still and so some times the boy doesn't like her to sleep in his room but wants his dog to sleep in there with him. But they will both whine at the door wanting to be with each other. So I tell him it isn't fair to keep one shut out or one shut in. That he should let them both in or just leave his door open so that they can both decide which room they want to sleep in. They usually go into his room first and then come into our room later after he has fell asleep and we are going to bed.

I was living with my bother and his wife and their three dogs when I adopted my dog that we found wandering the street one day when we were taking their dogs for a walk. So she was use to living with other dogs. When I moved out shortly after that she missed being with the other dogs and was moping. So I started to leave her with my sister-in-law while I was working so she got to visit with the dogs and my brother and his wife again, and that did the trick. But then I moved away from them and thought about just letting her stay at home, but she was having issues getting use to the new house too, so I kept taking her to my sister-in-laws on the way to work. When I got laid off I didn't want to drive over an hour away to constantly let her visit them. But she was lonely, and my boyfriend's son wanted a dog of his own, so we got another dog. Then about a yr later my dog had to be put down last Nov, and the boy's dog took it really hard. She had been a really active puppy always running around and playing. But she was morning the lose of my dog and took to laying on my bed and pillow like my dog use to like to do and didn't want to play or go outside. So we ended up having to get another puppy to keep her company. And now they are both really happy active buddies keeping each other company.

Kelly how sweet that you got another dog. We have thought about it but really think the puppy will adjust although you have given me food for thought. He was from a liter of 7 and they had the Mama and another dog and then when he came to our house we had the Sheltie. So he is having quite an adjustment. Which is delayed a bit now having DS's dog here for 2 weeks.

Thanks for the condolences.

Hope Everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

I'm sure your puppy is lonely. We had to get another dog after our older dog died 3 years ago - our puppy wouldn't even go outside - she missed her buddy so much. He was a totally outdoor dog and Daisy had never been out in the yard without him there.

Thanks for all the condolences, Everyone! DS is coming home and bringing his beautiful German Shepherd for 2 weeks. That will help our puppy (1 yr old) get out of his slump since our sweet Sheltie is gone.

Hope Everyone has a great weekend!

Well, I'm finally feeling a little better. Got up and took a walk this morning; my dog was very happy! I've started Spark's Healthy Habits Reset challenge.

Thanks Ladies! I am back, but I am sick, so going to try to rest and sleep a lot to try to get over it asap. So Hello, and all my best to you all always. I was in the business seminar from early morning until late at night with hardly any time off. So not a lot of down time. And then other than trying to get some food in and sleep, I really didn't have a lot of time to do much else except the first night we got there before the seminar began which was on my B-Day. So I got to go out to dinner with the people I went there with and walk the Las Vegas strip sight seeing that night. But not much else after that except sitting in the seminar conference room.

Okay, I am going to go lay down and try to go back to sleep, as I am suppose to be at an early morning training meeting tomorrow and then another one in the evenings tomorrow and Wed too. But the way I am feeling today, I am not looking forward to going. If not better, I might just skip them and have some one else on my team give me info from them so I can keep my cold germs to myself and try to get over this. I had a bloody nose Wednesday night before going to the seminar, and then my throat got irritated Friday and was worse Sat. Sunday I had another bloody nose shortly after getting up, and then it stuffed up and I started coughing and hacking later in the afternoon. This morning I woke up with my stomach cramping and a sinus infection, plus some coughing and hacking. And just a little bit ago, I was on my regular Monday morning webinar for work and the cramping acted up again and I had to step away from the webinar to go to the bathroom again. So really not feeling good today. Take care and all my best to you all always.

I'm up and at it. Going to be a quiet day today. My hubby had to work over time last night and didn't get to bed until probably around 6 am. Still feeling blah. Trying to get some Avon work done and the site isn't working. Winter is back for a day or so. Guess I will be getting a few things done around the house instead

Hoping almost 12 hours sleep will help here. I was so tired yesterday, I went to bed at 8 and didn't get up until 7:30 this morning. Got a lot to do.

Hi everyone!

It's been a bit of a rough week. After going to the naturopath, found out my adrenals are shot. Plus my thyroid looks like it needs some work too. And my back has been sore. At least I know why now I feel like blah. I am taking a few natural supplements to help me along. And tweaking my eating too.

hi Debbie,
I believe I saw another person who has a similar name as Daddy's girl here....

Yah, I still never got back to you either. Most of my tie has been work, my mom's stuff, our eventual move, and my best friends' passing.

I hope to get in a walking meet up group. emoticon

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I had a great Thursday - got to see my daughter in her last campus-wide ROTC ceremony. Hard to believe she's ready to graduate soon.

All my best to you all always. I will be leaving on my business trip tonight. I got a lap top as an early B-Day present since I won't be home tomorrow. So hopefully I will be able to get Online while I am away. I probably won't be able to weight myself, but will track my steps and miles

that is interesting.

I've tried the sinus rinse kit several times. I don't know t kept me from getting sick, but it seemed as if it was shorter.

I have gargled with salt water or the HP mixture . That has helped. Awhile ago, I had this painful bump thing on the side of my tongue. I put a few drops of tea tree oil and it disappeared in 1 1/.2 days. Boy was I amazed.

I tried an essential oil for not getting sick. It didn't keep things at bay.

However, the ones for sleep, grounding, moods, was helpful.

My husband's ENT physician had him get Alkalol to mix with water to start with and use then later had him get just a Sinus rinse kit. It looks like you can get it in a rinse kit now but it would probably work like Hydrogen Peroxide. It really worked good for hubby but we couldn't find it for a long time and had to have it ordered in special whenever we wanted to buy it.
Check out their website if you're interested.

I have been using the salt water rinses forever to help get rid of sinus infections. I knew some people will put just a tiny bit of Listerine in with it when they are having problems. I didn't want to do it for the longest time as I just knew it was going to sting. But several yrs ago I was fighting and fighting it like you, and just keep going through round after round of sinus and bronchitis infections until I was tired of it and decided to try it. And I really think it helped. I just added a tiny bit at a time to be sure I could tolerate it, so I didn't end up with it too strong. It does sting a little at first, but then it really isn't too bad and it really seemed to kick it out, and help to keep it from coming back. So I usually just go a head and add a little now. I also read in here that Hydrogen Peroxide is good to kill stuff, and so I started adding a little of that to a small container of mouth wash and I use that at the first sign of an irritated throat, or if I come in contact with someone I know is sick with cold, sinus or bronchitis to try to keep from catching it from them. I also have two saline solution nose spray bottles, one regular and one with a little peroxide added to it. If my nose is dry or bleeding inside I use the regular one, but if I am feeling like I might be coming down with a sinus issue, or I come in contact with some one that is sick I will use the one with the peroxide. Luckily I haven't came down with a cold again since I right after I started this job before I was doing all of this. The boyfriend's son has been fighting off colds, sinus and bronchitis infections a lot lately. But since I got that first cold after starting this job I have been using the Listerine and peroxide and I haven't came down with one. Where before if I was around any one that was sick, I was going to end up with it too. The boy has been coughing for almost a month now, and was out of school for two weeks. First week due to the cold, second week due to spring break and the cold. He just finally went back to school Monday even though he still has a bit of a cough. Of course he won't try any of this stuff, not even essential oils. His dad did make him start taking cough medicine at bedtime the second week, and using vick's on him, and a vick's vapo thing in his bedroom at night. And his mom supposedly was making him sit with a towel over his head and breath in steam from hot water, and using a vaporizer in his room at night when he was with her.

I am going to take a container with a little peroxide added to Listerine, and my peroxide salt water spray bottle too on this business trip I am leaving for tomorrow night. As I know I am going to be sitting in a room with about 500-700 people Friday from 1pm-10pm. And then again Sat from early morning until around 4-6pm. It is in a casino hotel in Vegas, so I know I am going to be around cigarette smoke that bothers me, and in air condition that can also cause problems, and then you know with that many people some one is probably going to have at least a sore throat if not a cold. So I am hoping to ward off any thing I come in contact with.
Well all my best to you all always.

Using saline sinus rinses really are beneficial. I, personally, can't handle even the thought of them (ugh!!) but my husband uses them and it really helps cut down on the length of the problems. I'm sorry to hear that you're not getting the relief with your essential oil blend.

Well I'm pretty disgusted! I've been using an essential oil blend that protected thieves from the bubonic plague and diffusing 2 or 3 others for the last 2 weeks and I've got a sinus infection for the 3rd time in the last month and a half. I've NEVER been sick for this long. I'm completely losing faith in a 'natural, healthy' lifestyle. I eat better and exercise more now than I ever have.

My "drill sergeant" just went home. No exercise with him today but I am going to take a walk now before the sun sets.

It's been a beautiful day here... never hit 80 so I've been able to keep windows open. I made something new: chickpea tofu. No soy, just ground-up chickpea flour with water, salt and turmeric. I think I'll try it with different flavorings next time...

I blew off the debris from the patio and got all the outdoor plants watered.

Hope everyone has had a great weekend!

Late answer to LivelyGirl: Yes, I've been reading The Mark of the Lion seris... I agree, it's one of the best stories I've ever read.

I worked today. After I had a little rest at home, I went to pick up my daughter's dog who I am keeping for the weekend. I took him for an hour long hike on a nearby mountain. He sure gave me a nudge... I'm pretty sure that he shaved 10 minutes off the time it usually takes me alone. LOL, how's that for a drill sergeant?

Got a walk in today with one of the doggies and then hubby work on a landscaping area in our front yard. We had some roots ground out and are just getting around to removing the wood chips so we can get a new tree planted soon. Lots of digging and moving of landscape stones. Definitely a workout for the arms!

Got up and walked again this morning; first time in week or so. Cappy (my dog) wasn't sure we needed to go AGAIN! I think he'd rather go in the evening, but then when it gets hot, he won't go then either. He's getting older and a little arthritic. Weather is finally getting spring-like.

Went for a walk - 4.21 miles total. I let my son take my van to school so I walked to the bank, then went for a double berry chicken salad and enjoyed a book while I ate. After leaving there I walked to Walgreens and back home. All of it in a drizzly sort of rainy day. It felt good to go green today and run errands on foot.
