That is the link if you are interested.

I don't know what a tree duck is, but I love all the birds coming around right now! I have seen cedar waxwings, mallards, doves (ever present) and barn owls. We always have cardinals and finches around.

I pray the Lord blesses your health and financial situation Beth!

We are tired. There is a beautiful place in Kerrville, Texas called The Empty Cross and it is high on a hill with a sculpture garden. We were blessed to be there! 16 of us went from Austin on a day trip.

STRESSED to the max but hanging in there. My friend was hospitalized and we don't know if she will be okay. Still don't know my husband's biopsy results. Had to put off my shoulder surgery because of finances being so bad after his surgery for an indefinite time. Finances are at an implosion point. Just don't know what to do. I've been praying. Going to see a financial counselor to help us plan so I can get my surgery this year, I hope. The pain is awful. Sadly, they keep giving me corto-steroids to solve the inflammation and it is making me gain weight, I won't let any of it stop me in my tracks though. I've been through tough situations before and God is answering prayers. Thanks for reading/listening. I really needed to vent. ~Beth

We are supposed to have mostly sunny and 69 degrees here today! I am still expecting one more good snow day before we can get the place ready for summer though. That's what normally happens here in Colorado!

All is good this week. I am eating the biotype plan for Adrenal type. It is easy! I have been able to walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day. AND I made a sale in my business yesterday.

Postponing my surgery til at least the end of April on my shoulder. Eating out of frustration and pain, but noting that having healthy foods in the house to nosh on cuts the weight gain side effect of said eating. IF you just have to eat, eat the healthiest versions possible.

SPARKLINGME .... I think your job is fantastic!

Wow, God sure is putting on a fantastic display of beauty this morning!
Suns shining, birds are singing, the air is cool and crisp, the breezes are blowing, everything has been washed clean during the rain, and the sky's are blue and completely cloud free.....
What a great start to the week!

I managed to gain 2 pounds back last week. I can't say I wasn't irritated, disappointed, or angry with myself for letting life take me down again. I had an unbelievable week of stress with mom and as always, I turned to food as my comfort zone. My "go too" when life beats me down again and again. But with every set back I have I learn something new.....

So here is to a new week and new beautiful morning!

I have been stressed with my move. Still wondering if I will get any of my deposit back. I could use it. Had a birthday party for my sister yesterday. 2 slices pizza and 1 piece chocolate cake. I even had a small scoop of ice cream, which is a no-no because I am lactose intolerant. Anyway, now that the move and party are over I think I can focus more on my exercise. Then I will work on the tracking of the food. Best I can do right now.

I am pouring on the effort to get myself under control again. I was doing great, SLOW but steady, and then I allowed the confusion and stress with the family to crowed in and take control of my life yet AGAIN!

I now have a very large yard to walk round and round in with the ability to sit when I need too. That's a start.....Rain, rain, and more rain today so when it slows to a sprinkle, I better be moving on! LOL emoticon

I need to also, Newdawn!

Jeannie, I wonder the same thing. I have a huge garbage bag in the garage of things I keep putting in it for Salvation Army.

I read the blog, Sparkling. I loved it. I am on Spark for the support.

It is going to rain here today, looking forward to it! This is a day I get to stay home and do laundry, etc. so I don't have to be out in the rain and I can watch from the windows with my kitties.

Back with the team after a brief break. I need to lose about 36 very stubborn pounds. emoticon
I know the strength is in me somewhere to do it. I just need to find it. emoticon

Still getting organized! My question is this: How on earth did I accumulate so much stuff?? LOL! No it's going well but slow because I am unused to all this activity! I'll get it all done eventually!

Sparkling - emoticon Read your blog and commented!

Coming down from a hypo-manic state which I pushed past it's natural end time by 2 days - I'm so exhausted and not feeling my "true" self! I know it will pass as it always does but by pushing I think I made my "recovery time" a tad bit longer than normal! Ah the joys of bipolar! On the bright side I am loving the cuddles with my grands and getting used to all the hubbub around here! Have a beautiful afternoon!

I know just what your talking about.
One of my daughters has the same values that I raised my children with and the children are being taught to be respectful, then there's my son and his family ..... they aren't on the same page and sometimes it takes everything in me to keep my mouth shut!
Hang in there girl and do a little dancing with those headphones on. Freak them ALL out a little! emoticon

I'm sure I will be the same way Deb! Right now I expose myself to the noise as long as I can handle it and then the headphones go on and, ahhhhh the audio book or music flows! Mostly it's the attitude of the 4 year old that gets me..... it's a long story but my DD's sis-in-law and her daughter lived with them in their old place and she let the kids talk back to her and have a bad 'tude and now we are all trying really hard to break him of it! It will just take time, persistence and patience!

It took me and DH a long time to get use to the noise level when our daughters family moved in after we had gotten use to the quietness of just three adults. Four added children and two more adults shot the volume levels sky high in a matter of seconds.
Then when they left it was TOO QUITE!

Still so busy trying to mesh the families and get everything organized! I love being with the grands but at the same time if I didn't have my noise cancelling headphones and my room to retreat to at times, I think I would be going crazy! I am sure the kids are finding everything a challenge to so I have been keeping my cool and not spouting at them when I get frustrated!

Hope everyone has a great evening!

CHOOSINGHEALTHY ..... Ouch! I hope you get better fast!

BLUEJAY1969 ..... Jeanne, I have been there. It's hard to mesh two families and everyone's afraid of bothering everyone else. Wish you all well!

ANGIEN9 ..... Angie, I am so glad you got all moved in. Get some rest or at least a breath or two!

Beth..... I am so sorry to hear that you have even MORE surgeries to come. I pray you will soon be whole again soon and pain free! Give DH our good wishes and I pray his results are cancer free!

They are calling for possible sleet today. I think it's bone cold here and so very wet!

Oh, NO ! Beth! You sure, and hubby, have our prayers ! Knowing you, you have the 'grit' to 'overcome'. I'm sure your hubby does also.

Remember, you are 'covered' with prayers.

God Bless You and Hubby.

Doctor results: Cyst in my shoulder joint the size of an orange. Needs to be removed along with part of the joint and part of the collar bone. Knee caps off center, bad arthritis, possible tear in the meniscus, some bone on bone activity, and spurs. Surgery in the future. Need to lose more weight and strengthen shoulders first. Husbands colon cancer is possibly back, biopsy and removal is in two weeks. We can use prayers to get through this and prayers about how we are going to pay the medical bills.

Got my daughter and her family moved in where it's nice and warm and safe! Still have things to get to a storage facility but that will hopefully be done on Saturday! I have been kept incredibly busy watching the grands and trying to let everyone settle into their routines before we "blend" me in to the mix!

I hope everyone is doing well! I have to run.... Grandkids time!

Sorry I'm MIA again. Many Doctor appointments. Shoulder- rotator cuff. Knee- torn meniscus. Back- well, too much to list. Anyway, I'm getting the lowdown on the shoulder today. Trying hard not to derail healthy eating habits because they keep things from breaking down further. They also help me feel my optimum.

We had to turn around and come back home 75 miles out. Our friend called and said that Ft. Worth was shutting down everything.

So we packed, drove up the road 75 miles, turned around, ate lunch, came home, unpacked!

The rest of my weekend was nice, but cold. How about you?

Thank you. Our friend called and said it was snowing in Dallas, but we are going anyway! I plan to enjoy the snow since we rarely see it! On our way soon.

Angie - Thanks for the well wishes!

Linda - I wish you good weather for your trip!

Got a lot of child proofing and organizing done yesterday! Will be looking at a new/used car later today as DH has the day off to go get his driver's license renewed!

Sorry about the family BlueJay. Here in Texas we have cold but no snow. That may change tomorrow or Saturday. We are watching the weather because we are supposed to go to Ft. Worth tomorrow for a dear friend's retirement party, spending the night and coming back home... not if there is ice!

Waltons Ha!Ha! I still watch it occasionally.

BLUEJAY1969 (Jeanne) we still didn't get much snow last night. Not even an inch. It is bitter cold again today. I hope it warms up for Saturday when I have a little help to move some stuff, Tuesday when we get my storage stuff and March 7th when I move the rest.

Hope your daughter and family are able to move quickly; especially in your weather.

Hope you have a good day!
Angie

Woke up to 6" of new snow this morning and it looks as if it may begin snowing again! I can't wait for Spring!

Kind of a long story... My DD's aunt-in-law inherited the house they are living in from my DD's MIL when she passed which she was supposed to leave it to the kids or at least the grand kids but the aunt strong armed her into changing her will. Sad story behind that. Anyway they have been paying rent and fixing it up for over 2 years now. They called her a week ago and told her the furnace was out and she booted them out in the middle of the winter. The sister-in-law and her 4 year old live there too. So the aunt is putting 6 people out during one of the worst winter periods we've had this year and 3 of them are babies! There is nothing they can do about it legally... we checked. The sis-in-law and her daughter are moving in with her b/f and of course my DD and her DH and my grands are moving in here with us. But even at my age I have found that I can be truly shocked by the complete depths of cruelty that people can sink to.

DD and her family will live here with us until they can get into an affordable place around here..... There is a pretty nice place opening up in June that is fairly close to us and that would be perfect for them! They could make rent and have 3 bedrooms so that the baby and her big brother can have their own space. For now we are making do with the 2 bedrooms in our lower (garden) level. DD's hubby said "it'll be like the Waltons!" I didn't realize he was old enough to remember that one!

Lucky him and you, Debbie! I have indoor kitties, but also love dogs.

I hope everyone is warm and safe in this crazy weather!

He's got you, doesn't he! Have fun!

Well Jake really knows how to get me up and moving. He took one of my 1000 step day's and boosted it up to about 2500 yesterday..... emoticon

I can't make excuses to not walk him unless I want to clean up nasty messes emoticon

I used to have a very friendly and loving Cocker spaniel my cousin gave me (I named him Bumblebee, loved the Transformers at that age) because her daughter was 'allergic' to dogs. A couple of months later they got a new golden retriever puppy and and the younger cousin let slip the reason they got rid of the one they gave me was because it was too tall to be a successful show dog.

I was happy to have Bumblebee but really, they should have been honest about the reasons. Still played with her daughter when she visited her grandma (and my aunt, who lived next door to me) but I felt rather uncomfortable going to their house after that.

Progress, not perfection.

We have a new friend named Jake who took us for two walks this morning.
He is almost a year old Cocker spaniel mix and very patient with me and DH. He barks very little, learns fast, and seems to be very happy.

He is enjoying a life outside his kennel. (Most of the time)

His old mommy and daddy worked a lot and he just didn't get much exercise. He was headed to his appointment with the ASPCA on Monday before we called and asked about him so it was a win / win situation!

My other new exercise equipment is a new pair of fishing gloves so I can remove the fish my self!
