Joy good to hear from you. We have snow in the ground. nothing coming up yet, another month or so before that happens.
What have you been doing? Not much going on here. Very quiet! I guess that is a good thing. I have been working out found a good program online called Grow Young Fitness. I have been doing it at least 5 days a week. Trying to get hubby to do it to.
Good to hear from you,
Carol

Good Morning Joy, Good to hear from you and happy you are getting out some.I am sure it is hard to have everything change so much in a short period of time.
Snow, we don't have any right now and did not get much this winter, only had to use the plow guy three times. But we may get a big storm on Tuesday into Weds. sigh so much for not much snow. It is almost over so I can't complain, it will be spring in a few weeks.
Hubby not doing so good. It is sad to watch. His brain is not working all that well and he gets confused, messes up his computer and iphone. We have apple products and there is nothing easier to use. sigh
I found a good program on the internet for working out, it is called Grow Young Fitness, a program for seniors and most of the exercises are done with a chair. I am getting hubby to do it once in a while. Maybe three times a week. He has to move but it is so hard for him. His balance and voice do not work. He can't nag me anymore, lol
Have a great week Rosie and Joy.
Hugs,
Carol

May have a little snow. Haven't hadany in a couple of years. I went to senior center and played bingo and then played cards. Think it was third time. Don't really care about it but I need to do something.
Been working in yard some. Moving some plants and cleaning little.
How ishubby,Carol? Know it probably won't get any better. God bless, Joy

Joy, sounds like you are doing well. I wish we all were closer! I think it is nice we have been friends for years on the list!
I love the thrift stores, hate buying clothes so I get them there. They have so much nice stuff!
Good luck with your job search, hope you find something soon.
I have been cleaning out stuff, we have so much junk! Feels good to get rid of it. So here I go again today, going to do the closet I was going to do last week, got caught up in a room in the basement with a ton of stuff we haven't used in years. I did do hubby's closet.
No yard work here today as it is very cold, 9 degrees and we had snow flurries last nigh and the high today is going to be 19 degrees. We have had very little snow this year and the ground has not been frozen. Very different than the winters we usually have, this is two years in a row. Thinking of you Joy, and a big hug for you and Rosie,
Carol

Carol, I'm taking things toalittle thrift store. I think I'm addicted to that place. I go two or three times a week. I get most of my clothes thhere and if they don't fit or something I give them back. They get in some good things. This week it was two for a quarter. I always give the a little extra.
Rosie, how is work? I want to find a little job. Haven't heard of anything yet.
Carol, I haven't worked in yard much. Meed to. God bless, Joy

Joy, Good that you have a new car! Now you can get around and you did it yourself. Very proud of you!
I am doing cleaning, getting rid of stuff and we have stuff, some things are going to goodwill others to Chewies playland where I take my dogs. I have a ton of quilts that I don't use and they use them for dogs bedding. I am going to tackle the front hall closet next week. Going to take a picture of before and then one when I am done. We have coats we haven't worn in years, why are we keeping them? So if we haven't used it in two years out it goes.
Good luck with hubby's clothes I am sure it is hard to do. Lots of memories. Have you been getting out?
Have a great day and a big hug Joy and you too Rosie,
Carol

Carol, happy there's something hubby enjoys.
I fond a car. A thirteen Chrysler. ope it is good one. One owner and low mileage. I went car shopping by myself. I decidd I jst wanted a car. The kids never offered to go with me and guess I was too stubborn to ask. They gave me fifty one hundred for my Jeepand I got this for eight thousand. Still has a year's warranty on motor and transmission. Hope it is a good one. Numbers want work on my tablet for some reason and I hate to type on same age. Trying to get hubby's clothes out.

Rosie, a busy kid is a good kid! Nice that he has so much! My granddaughter age 10 loves to ski and they live near a big ski area, she has been skiing since she was 2. She fell three weeks ago and broke her leg, poor baby but is doing great. She hates not being able to ski but...
NH has a ton of ski areas.
Have a great day,
Carol

Good for your great gran playing ball, my grand broke her leg skiing but she is a real trooper, still has a smile all the time!

Joy, sounds like it has been a week. So sorry about your accident, too bad at least you were not at fault!! Happy you were not hurt!
It is good your Son is with you, at least for a while. I am sure it is good to have someone in the house with you.
Good luck with getting a job, it would be good for the extra money and it would get you out some. Important to get out and see people!
Keep us posted, thinking of you!

Cold here but probably not as cold as where uboth are.
Ihaven't been anywhere except TOPS all week. I was taking alady home and I was making left turn and a car rear ended me. Bruised me up and ribs sure hurt. Went at the kids insinding to hospital. Not broken. No one hurt much. Don't know ifthey will total my car or not. Police report not ready. I thought they might fix it but some don't think so.
Thought I would get hubby's SS this month but got mine which isn't much. Called and said I would get most of his in Feb and all in March Going to try to get a little job later. Have some money but don't want tohave to spend if I don't have to. Will have to pay extra for a car if they total it.
Rosie, hope your son get better soon. Did I tel u that my son Is here. Came next day after funeral. Wife left him a week or two before and we didn't know it. We are making it fine. God bless, Joy

Thank you, Carol for your prayers and you, too Joy, I know you both said you're praying for him, he can use all he can get, I have others here, praying for him as well....

We have gotten some snow this morning and it just stopped for a while.

I love going to thrifts shops, there is a Goodwill, and Salvation Army up in Gaylord, (30 mi. away, 20 min. on expressway) Also a Salvation Army in Houghton Lake, south of us, and same distance from here as is Gaylord. We have a couple thrift stores here St. Francis is where I go to, all of their things are 3 dollars, but you can find some things for 2 dollars sometimes, I like the St. Vinnies, in Roscommon, though, There's also a St, Vinnies in Houghton Lake, Carol I've heard of the Savers thrift shops, but, there's none near here that I know of.. The other store here is only open Mon, Wed, and Fri. I don't know what it is called, I rarely go there

I'll talk to you's later

Joy, good for you! Happy to hear you are getting out. I get most of my clothes at Savers, a second hand store and there is the salvation Army close by. I hate buying new stuff, like the worn in things.
We have not had much snow either, only about an inch on the ground. Good thing I bought snow shoes, lol
Hubby is not doing all that good, falls a lot and not steady on his feet. Kind of scary sometimes. I try to get him to use his walker but he won't. sigh
Getting out is important so I try. Hubby will not go so I leave him and tell him to stay in his chair, he does most of the time.
Keep it up Joy,
Carol
Hi Rosie, praying for your son!

Hi Joy, wow, a quarter, in Roscommon where my son is they have a St Vincent DePaul and most of their things, clothes are on dollar,

Yup, I know if my son could get out it would be better, but he has no way, he does not drive and his girls are the only other way, to go much, and they do, the girls were at his place for taco dinner the other night is what he told me, I was going to stop by and see him today, but, he said he was not feeling well, so I'll have to go some other time soon, take care

Same here, Carol, in the 40's for a few days, and it has been melting, plus we had some rain and sleet and snow, is why we had the ice, My grandkids and dd has been shoveling my driveway and my one neighbor, has been even helping with me driveway, also, so I haven't shoveled any this winter so far,

We're going to go shopping this morning sometime,

Rosie, my heart bleeds for your son. I am so sorry he has to go through this. Prayers are the thing!

We have snow not much and some rain mixed in with it all. Roads are ok I think. I have to go out early as Princess has to have her dental. She is a toy poodle and doesn't weigh much so I am kinda worried about her. She is the cutest little thing with a big dog attitude.

Have a great day,

Hugs,
Carol

Thanks, Carol, I wish my son didn't have to go through this myself, he needs to Learn to Live with it, I know it's hard and he knows I do, too.

We have a lot of ice and icy roads here, side roads are bad, main roads not bad ate all, they are drivable, Plus with the rain we have been having and lots of mud water holes. Schools were closed all over here today, too

Problem is, Carol, with my son, he has tried (suicide) more than once which didn't actually succeed (Thank God) but who knows the next time. That is mostly why I worry, I had my brother go with me one time b4 Christmas and the opportunity came up where my brother was able to tell, that he (my brother) our grandma told my brother, that the only thing it does, it hurts the ones you love more that it hurts yourself. That's why I worry so much, I did hear fro him today, he answered a text I sent him, but?? and I can't be there all the time, he is 17 mi. from me/ emoticon

Have a nice night :)

I've thought about going back over to the Senior Center here, I have not been over there in quite a while, They have some things I would like to go and maybe participate in once in a while , but, with all the snow and etc, it is just too cold to get out any more that I really need or want to.

A couple of days ago it was 6 months since the passing of my sons wife, my daughter in law, and I know he is still having a hard time, of it, He is by himself 99% of the time, has no way to get to some places and doesn't drive any more, has been on disability for some time because of some problems he has had with his stomach and maybe other things I may not know about, I worry so much about him and he has been suicidal for some times?

I need to go,

Joy, happy to hear from you. It is hard to believe it has been a month since hubby passed.
We have not a drop of snow on the ground, this statement could come back to bite me but for now there is nothing in the forecast! It is early yet and we could get a ton of snow later but this is nice.
We really need the snow as we have been in a big drought and it just gets worse. Should be interesting to say the least.
Taking two dogs to doggie daycare today, they go once a week, it is good for socialization.
I am joining the Senior Center today. Thanks for the remind!
Hubby is not doing well, hard to get him out but we went for a ride yesterday and he seemed to like getting out.
Keep in touch Joy, we are a small group that has been together for quite a while.
I value your friendship.
Hugs to Rosie and Joy

We didn't get as much snow as the weather people thought, looks nice and clean. Not enough to use my snow shoes, maybe I have to go up north?
Quiet day here today, hope it stays that way!

Good Morning Sisters,
Rosie love your new microwave, I am sure you are happy to have it!
I still miss my MOther and she passed in 1995. Sometimes I talk to her. I don't think you ever stop missing someone you love.
We have snow, not much but the plow came at 3 am to do the driveway, bless them! It stopped around 1 am. I thought about going out and shoveling around that time but I thought about it for a second and rolled over and went back to sleep, lol
Have a great day,
Carol

Sorry, I haven't been getting emails from sparks, again, and I'm sorry for your hubby's passing Joy, it is very hard when we lose our spouse, it'll be 9 years in March for me, and I still miss him a lot, sometimes, I still have a tear or two, myself, and when it first happens, it is like a shock for some time, and hard to believe. I know how my grandma felt now, also

Hi Joy, happy to have from you, sounds like you have a people around that will help! Happy you went to TOPS and the senior center. I am going to join the senior center, just so I can start making friends. We are isolated, hubby does not have any friends and mine are all young and work!
My hubby is falling so much, out of bed, in the bathroom in the tub, kind of sad don't know what I am going to do. He needs to do something but I can't get him to do physical therapy, I am going to talk to his doctor.
We are getting snow and lots of it, well not that much 3 to 6 inches. Very cold so the snow is light and fluffy, easy to shove. I will do a path for the dogs outside and maybe beat the snow plower guy. lol
Have a good day Joy, a big hug for you,
Carol

Joy, I am sure it still doesn't feel real. I am happy he didn't suffer and he had an easy passing.
Mine uses a urinal at night, sometimes I have to help him but for the most part he can do it on his own, I get up at 5 am to start his pills.
I am happy you got to go to your daughters for Christmas.
You have to get some sleep! Go to bed at the same time everynight and get up at the same time in the morning. Get at least 8 hours of sleep.
Are you going to TOPS? It would be good for you to get out and see people.
I so wish we lived closer.
Thinking of you and praying too.
Big hug,
Carol

Joy,
Hubby is not doing well, he has some dementure and forgets stuff. Having a hard time getting around.
Things like getting off the toilet and up out of his chair are a challange, also falling a lot.
I am happy you are doing good, I am sure it is hard but it is so hard to watch them in pain etc. Last night he was frantic looking for his teeth. They were in his mouth, would have been funny but it is sad.
Looked at his obit it was beautiful, love all the pictures.
Big hug
Carol

Joy, I am so sorry. You both had some good years and I am sure he is not having any Parkinson problems now. I am sure it is hard to say goodby, you spent so much time together. Happy you are doing better than you thought you would.
Good to check on what you need to do people tell you things that they think are true but are not.
I wish we lived closer. I would like to give you a big HUG.
Thinking of you,
Carol

Hubby passed last Thurs. Knew he was worse but didn't wantto takehim to hospital. Dau was going to call about ospice that day. We had talked while e was in hosital. I was sitting in lift chair by hospital bed. I had slleptthere. Put bed in L.R. and has watced new and I didn't ear breathing. Got up and he was warm but couln't feel pulse.Called and they told me how to mash on chest. They got here quickly and worked withhim. e had DNR and I did't want any machines or anything like that.
Visitation Thurs. night and funeral Sat/ Lovely service and a large crowd. Started raining and freezing and had several going the direction of it and they left right after funeral. Al got home ok. Dau went different way and stayed a whileand had hard time. My sister came next day and stayed till Sun. Should have told u but didn't even think to tell anyone but u could watch it on computer. Think pictures are still up. Luginbuel funeral home i n Prairie Grove ar. Had a lot with our pictures ofgoin to the forty nine states.
Rosie, I remember when your hubby passed Sawa lady in bank yesterday and she had watched it. Didn't know i I need to take him off of everything right then or what. Se said not to worry.
Our TOPS group had Christmas party yesterday and some told me one thing about S.S. and then another. I called them when I got home and they said I would draw what he did our checks both came third Wed. and I didn't know if I sent his back. She said to keep it.
It stil does not seem real. I'm doing better than I tought I would. fifty seven years. He was a wonderful usband and dad. He didn't like quarreling. I was the one that fussed but I was good to him. Don't tink he paid attention to me. God bless and Mrry Christmas, Joy

Well we got the snow and I shoveled. I beat the person that is going to plow. I hate being hemmed in by snow so if he isn't here before I want to go out I shovel.
Gotta love it!

Have a good three days off Rosie!

Good Morning Joy, cold here. I leave the car in the garage starting in November to at least April. Otherwise I leave it in the driveway. I hate to brush off the snow and scrape the windows. I don't need to warm it up if it is in the garage.
Condum cather work really good. Happy you are using them. Makes life easier. Before hubby had his surgery we used them now just the depends, 24/7. Most of the time it saves me alot of laundry! He still gets up during the day but doesn't move much. Sits in his chair.
I haven't done much for Christmas, sending grandkids checks. Almost ready to mail. I have a Granddaughter that I give an Amazon card. Her Dad says she loves it, put things on her wish list and then puts lots of time deciding if she really wants it. Sometimes she still has money in June. She is careful of what she buy's and she is 10.
Going to get snow later today and over night, 4 to 6 inches, not much. Just enough to make it sloppy driving.
I wish we all lived closer.
Carol

Carol, hope acupunture helps. Do u leave your car on street when it doesn't snow? I just have a carport but it is nice when weather is bad.
Hubby sleeps all time nearly. Doesn't like to bemoved. Wearing the cathater that goes onhis penis really helps. Saves me from having to change him as mch. Sometimes it leaks. I'm getting pretty good as changing bed with him in it.
Not worrying bout Christmas much. Been real cold here but thank God we are staying warm.
Some of church ladies brought s supper onenight. Nice of them/ God bless, Joy

Happy things are going good Joy! Sounds like they took good care of you at the hospital too. Your turkey sounds good! Nice to have frozen turkey and there is so much you can do with it!
Cold here and we are in for a cold snap, winter, lol. Going to last until spring. hahaha
The yard is done I had it raked and I turned of the water to the outside. Getting everything ready for cold. I am putting the car in the garage so when it snows they can plow. Having that done this year too. I shovel paths in the back for the dogs, I make a maze for them, silly me.
They are so small they would get stuck in the snow. 'took hubby to the doctor for his shoulder, the doctor tried acupuncture and it looks like it might work. I hope so, he doesn't do pt well, complains and I have to drag him.
Hope everyone has a great day,
Carol
