Marlene, sounds like a little separation anxiety to me - don't take it personally!

When I visited my year-old grandson in Ireland last year, my DD advised me not to rush him, to let him warm up to me. And I'm all for that. It was such a short week with the little guy. I'd like to return another year when he's older and will be able to remember me. Shel

I had baby Henry today, he will be one the last day of March. And will have a baby sister in July. He is a mommy baby so not sure what is going to happen. He gave me a bad time after he first got here. He did not want me to hold him or put him down. He is walking and was running to the window crying. His mom said he was mad at her was the reason. I finally put him in the crib and he went to sleep and slept a couple hours. He was fine when he got up so I am thinking he was just wanting to take a nap, maybe he was angry with his mom for leaving him, too.

Hope you have great success Shelley! Sorry you had such bad luck with your other kiln!

We got snow today. It didn't last long. Already melting but it was pretty to watch!!

Daddys, yes, I have my own kiln. It's small and plugs into a regular outlet. I used to have another as well, but it bit the dust. I hope this one lasts!

Made an appt. for my first outpatient PT - the dr. gave me a Rx. Maybe I'll be able to work out on some machines! emoticon

Hello Friends, Still winter here today but traffic is moving some. ;-) Don't think I will get out yet. :-) Expecting more ice and snow tonight and tomorrow! ;-)

Shelley thanks for the info. So do you have a kiln of your own? Children and I used to do some ceramics at a city park recreation center. One DS still has some pieces of a chess set not finished. I'd love to finish them for him.

Marlene so thankful you are being cautious. More power to your Bil's Mom!! Bless her!! Hope she is ok and will use her walker now. A walker is a friend not an enemy or shameful companion. ;-)

My nephew came by returning a monitor that I had loaned him until he could get one for his self. I was glad to get it back as I needed to update my accounts on Quickbooks. I don't have that computer online as I don't trust my stuff being open for hackers. My nephew cleaned a path to the garage for me but it is so cold I have not been out.

The sun is shining but it is still really cold. I am hoping that the snow will melt a lot even if it is cold. Tomorrow I told my sister we would come and help them clear out her mother in law's apartment. Her MIL fell and broke a hip and has been in rehab now going to the nursing home. She is 96 and as sharp as a tack. She tries to walk without the walker and fell in the night. She did not tell the nurses and somehow managed to get back in bed with black and blue skin. My sister's DH goes to see his mother every day some times more than once. I am going with my DD and her DH to help my sis and bro in law.

Have a great day. emoticon Marlene

Daddy's, yes they are fired. When they are dry clay ("greenware" I use a pint called underglaze, which is not shiny. I fire them at cone 04; then I put on a gloss glaze and fire them again at cone 06.

Marlene, I don't blame you for not wanting to fall! I am in no rush to go out myself except when absolutely necessary!

Today for the first time in what seems AGES I did a small part of a Richard Simmons routine, the first 15 minutes or so of this video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-KF
OV
P5PUU

Very low impact, but more than I'd been able to do since my hip began to really bother me. Didn't want to do too much too soon, of course. Perhaps I'll do a little more later, or just wait till tomorrow. It's just so good to be able to do it!

Marlene so glad you are being wise and staying inside! I am sure one of your guys will come help get rid of the snow. We are supposed to have more all though the week! We are looking forward to it! Should have brought firewood in before it got rained on but oh well! ;-)

My knee is not bothering me today. Must have been a weather thing that people talk about?? I have not gotten out, it is way too cold and I am not in the mood to shovel snow. Besides that the door to my garage is piled high with snow and need the shovel out of the garage to clear that. So guess I will wait until it melts or maybe a son in law or grandson will come and shovel for me.

I called the post office and asked if the mailman could bring my mail to my door. I just don't want to get out. I just live across the alley from the post office but I have a box on the rural route. I am afraid of falling, I did not used to be but I sure don't want a broken hip or leg at my age. (or any age for that matter.)

emoticon Make a snow man, maybe I could get a neighbor boy to come and make one
too cold emoticon
More talk of snow or rain coming later in the week.
Sunshine would be nice emoticon

While I always have a running stock of standard breeds of dogs, and cats in assorted colors, I get a bunch of special orders because of course we love our pets! And I also do other animals from Aardvaark (and yes, I've sold some!) to Zebra! Shelley

Hi Friends!
Marlene glad you have opted to be safe!! Hope you enjoyed the snow from the inside! I love to watch it snow!! Very touching story, thanks for sharing! Who is the American singing artist of the 60's and 70's and probably longer that also stuttered except when signing?

Shelley sounds like you have been very busy!! Would you share your animal creations pics on your page?

We are getting rain and then freezing temps through the night. We should get rain but then it will turn to snow or ice. Travel will be treacherous the next few days. We are prepared to stay in and be safe. Our closet area lake has been down 11 ft and now is down just 9 ft. Still much more is needed for us to manage through the hot summer. God is good to give us so much more moisture this week!!

Marlene, I clicked on that link, and it brought tears to MY eyes, too! It's lovely to see people overcome challenges.

I ordered 17 - SEVENTEEN - things of yarn from Jo Ann fabrics online! I still have enough to finish the blanket I'm making for the boy twin; the new stuff will be here for the girl to pick some colors she'd like.

This morning I made some special order cats, a couple of red pandas, and a few other small animals out of clay.

The kids return to school tomorrow - it'll be quieter in the house! Shel

It is snowing and blowing here and it is in the 20s. I have decided to stay home from church. I am having trouble with one of my knees and it is hard enough to walk in the house so I am sure it would be hard going down my snowy steps.

Have a great day!!!

Crocheting isn't much of a strain...Though my fingers can get numb after a while!

Going out today - first time since going home from hospital on the 5th. It's super cold out, and I also have to stop at the PO to mail some packages, and at the grocery store to get PRODUCE! (I want SALAD!) My friend is taking me, so I offered to buy her an early dinner after the running around. Shel

Poor nose! May the Lord speed healing!
Finished crocheting a blanket for one of my step-grands and am working on another for the twin boy. Then I will have to get more yarn to make one for the twin girl. But they are all delighted to have their own.

Marlene sorry you lost a crown! I hate it when that happens!

Shelley that is a wise idea especially with children that need so much care. You might make it back just in time for school to be out! ;-) At least the weather will be warmer!

DS's surgery went well today. His nose is repaired and the artery is back in place where it should be to be protected from hits. He broke his nose so many times as a kid that the artery was no longer where it was meant to be but exposed and arteries don't stop bleeding easily. So glad it is fixed and the surgery went well. The hard part will be keeping him "quiet" for a week. But thankfully his wife will keep him in line! ;-)

I put in to take the full recommended 12 weeks to recover - that gives the muscles time to firm up and heal so as not to worry about the hip dislocating. I probably COULD go back sooner, but at my age, I'd rather not rush things.

Good morning all. The sun is shining and snow is gone except for north side of the buildings and where there is shade from the sun. I am going to go turn up the heat at the quilt shop so it will be okay when they use the building. Too cold to walk this morning so will get the car out of the garage.
I am staying on a liquid diet of flurries and such. I can not get in to the dentist until Thursday morning to have the crown put back on the tooth. I am trying not to eat solid food that will get in the hole where it came out.

Well I posted to the team earlier today but not sure what happened to it! I will try again.

Marlene so glad you bundled up warm to go out and sweep your deck. Don't worry, we'd know you aren't a terrorist! Please be careful when you go out that you don't fall!
Know what you mean about moisture! We need it so badly here too. The area lakes are now dry pasture land like before the dams were built. Scary since that is where our drinking water comes from!

Shelley Sorry you had to postpone but if your weather is bad, it is probably a good thing you did. Now you have something to look forward too!
When do you go back to school? You are doing so well with your recovery and exercising!

DS is having his nose surgery tomorrow. Hope it accomplishes what they hope it will.

We ended up postponing our date - she was tired from work, and the weather has been yucky. She suggested we go to an airy mall so we (I, especially) can walk around. Our Scrabble game has also been postponed due to the inclement weather. The fun thing is telling my in-laws in the steamy hot jungle about what our temps are!

We had snow during the night, I have great grands coming this afternoon so I bundled up until all you could see was my eyes, put on my boots and went out and swept the porch steps and the ramp that goes to the deck. The snow was real fine and if the wind comes up I will probably have to do it again. I took a selfie and sent it to my kids, my son said I looked like a terrorist.
emoticon It is in the 20s now but I was afraid if it melted and refroze it would be slick.

I don't know how much snow we got but it is pretty and we need all the moisture we can get.

Not wet enough to make a snowman.

Marlene so sorry you lost your streak but glad you were able to go the funeral without doing all that driving by yourself. I know what you mean about being tired. I couldn't go back to sleep last night after the dogs needed to go out. So I lost 2 hrs. Glad that doesn't happen every night.

Shelley glad you are finding a way to exercise anyway. I am glad you have a friend to share the holiday with. It does make it special.

Yesterday was so nice here. Just like Spring. I spent some time cleaning the garage and found a sweatshirt DH must have taken off when working out there. Always a bit hard to find something like that, unexpectedly. But that was so like him. ;-) 2 yrs ago Valentines and our anniversary were the last holidays we would spend together. It is getting easier but will never be easy, I assume.

DS is having surgery on his nose Tuesday. This is going to be a busy week. But we keep on plugging on.

Hugs to you both!

Weight continues to climb. I do the exercises I'm allowed for therapy, mainly to strengthen and restore range of motion. No real cardio. I wonder...maybe I'll try the seated cardio, just adjusting for hip precautions. This morning I got in the shower all by myself, using the shower chair.
I am also sleeping better.
Today my old high school friend (we've known each other since 9th grade) is coming over to be my Valentine - not sure if we're going OUT, or sending out - since MY Valentine is far away and she doesn't have any significant other right now. We started this 4 years ago when my DH passed away the day before.
It's precious to have old friends, and to honor them when the time comes to attend funerals when possible. Shel

I never got on here yesterday and lost my streak. I had to spin to starti over on the count. I was gone until after lunch 50 miles to a funeral of a lady that was a neighbor child when I went to country school 70 years ago. My neighbor here in town sister is married a brother of the lady that died and was going to the funeral and asked if I wanted to ride with them, so I did. Then in the afternoon my DD and her DH were here. He is putting up an antenna so I can get Kansas TV. Sure hope it works. I live on the Kansas/Oklahoma border so am sort of in a lost zone when it comes to weather coverage. I have Directv out of Oklahoma City but that is several miles away.
I woke this morning at 2:30 so now I think I will go back to bed.
I was really tired last night and went to bed earlier but only have 6 hours of sleep so far.

I did not get home until 10 and I am really tired. We had a real nice dinner and then we played a game called crazy bridge and it was a crazy game but fun. I have to be up and gone from here by 8:30 in the morning. Driving 50 miles to a funeral.

Sure hope it warms up as it has been pretty cold today.

Shelley hoping you are doing well with therapy and not having much pain. Good for keeping up the good attitude. We won't gain if we don't move. ;-)

Marlene you did have a busy day! Hope you had a good night's rest!!

Enjoy keeping my DGS more and more! He is so cute and makes us laugh so often. What a joy!! He is almost 3 mths old now.

Good evening, time for bed and I am ready. I have been gone all day. First went to the tax man, then to visit a car lot that is run by friends. From there my DD and I went to my sisters. My DD has a embroidery machine and is making something and needed help. My sister has a machine and they worked on my DD's project. My sister is computer smart especially with the sewing, quilting and etc machines. My DD and I then went to Staples, to Golden Corral for lunch, to Lowes and WalMart. After shopping we went to see a couple ladies in the nursing home. Long day but we did accomplish a lot. Now I keep dozing off here in front of the computer so off to bed I go.

Got on the scale this morning and was a LITTLE disappointed at the weight gain - but I had moved bowels only once yesterday morning, and had had Chinese food, and could see I had some swelling. I am not discouraged - I know I will be able to do more and more and get this weight back off. It's just harder and takes longer, between age and recuperation!

Marlene you are so thoughtful to make a place for your family to gather. So nice to have so many together and get to be in on it too. Sweet of your nephew's wife to clean up!! Glad you were finally able to get some sleep!!

Shelley so glad you are home and doing well. Oh it is wonderful to finally get a bath isn't it! Wise choice to have DD help you the first time or 2.

Have had a busy weekend but have accomplished much too. Will be working on a quilt for a friend this week and hoping to get some more decluttering and organizing done here at the house. Loving the warmer weather! You'd think it is April not Feb! ;-) Hope We aren't sorry come June!! ;-)

Marlene, visits ARE nice, but they do produce stress!

Today my daughter helped me bathe. I may have been able to manage solo, but thought it wisest to have her with me the first couple times as I get accustomed to a different routine. Besides, she helps me reach places! I feel so much better now that I'm clean!

My DH has been gone two years. He passed Nov 24 2012. Some days it seems like yesterday so times much longer than it has been.

I am really tired tonight, I had a lot of company today. My nephew was here from California so I had my son and some other nephews come for dinner(lunch). Also my sister, her DH, my sister in law and a nephew's wife. Two of the nephews are my brother's twin sons, another was my older sister's son. My brother and my older sister are both deceased. We had a fantastic visit and lots of good food. I slept restless but finally at three this morning I got up and put a turkey breast in the crock pot. I then took a couple of Tylenol arthritis and tums and went back to bed and slept until after 7. I always get stress when company is coming, always afraid I will forget to do something. My nephew's wife cleaned up most of the dishes and packed the dishwasher. Sure is great to have help with clean up. I had the get together at my house so we could all be together and my California nephew could visit with them with out having to travel to each one's home.

Home again, home again, jiggity jig! Well, I may not be JIGGING, but I'm sure walking better. Yes, slowly, and there's pain, but it's decreasing, and it's also different - muscle, not bone on bone! I've even stood at the sink and done dishes! Shel

emoticon Dear Marlene! Those days get us unaware some times. Birthdays are hard. Is it 3 yrs this year you have been without your DH? Hard to believe it will soon be 2 yrs for me.
Glad you drove your car slowly and got the tires aired up!
You are a great Grandma/Great Grandma!! You are always there for your kids! You amaze me with all you do. I hope I am able to follow in your foot steps!!

Shelley we are thinking of you and hoping you are doing well! I am sure today is a hard day!

Going to work on a quilt and a skirt today! Hope both are done by Saturday but am probably being too optimistic on that one but think I will be home the rest of the week so will work on being diligent to the projects!! ;-)

Not much to write. I went to coffee this morning at the local coffee shop, some ladies go every morning, I very seldom go. I usually walk when I do as it is on about three blocks, maybe less. But this morning I decided to drive and check to see if the new battery in my vehicle would let me start the motor.
emoticon
First try it did, then a little light came on and said I had very low tire pressure, sure enough you could tell by looking. I drove really slow to the co-op to get it fixed. Same building as the coffee shop so it is a good thing that I decided to drive it. The weather is supposed to get bad tomorrow and I want my 4 wheel drive to be ready.

My granddaughter went back to work yesterday. She is an EMT. (Ambulance Person). Her DH's Aunt is taking care of the baby. He is two months old almost three. She called me today and asked if I could come and pick up the 11 year old from school and take him to the dentist on Thursday. I sure hope the weather lets me. They live over 20 miles from here. I must remember to take a book.

Termite people are supposed to come tomorrow for a routine check. I don't think I would ever have termites and most of the under of my house in steel. So I have to stay home tomorrow which is no problem, I stay home most of the time.

My DD came today and we worked on a picture puzzle. It has been a weepy day for me. It would have been my DH's 80th birthday.

Today I have to be at the hospital at noon; surgery is at 1:30. I am so looking forward to this. These past few days have been so hard to sleep, with pain and discomfort and not being able to take anything.
Of course, until they get the IV in me, I'm gonna be feeling mighty hungry and thirsty!

Hi Friends, Happy Lord's Day!!
Shelley my DD and I had breakfast out too, with a local spark friend. How fun it was meeting her face to face! Agree how nice it is to eat breakfast out and not have dishes to do.

Marlene thanks for explaining. At 15 kids do still have a lot of pickiness. ;-) My DH changed a lot of what he would eat when he had to pay for the groceries. ;-) How wonderful he'd come to visit with you!

A cold front is blowing in today. Going to be cooler this week. Not freezing just cooler than what we have had for the last couple weeks.
Not sure why my puppy had me awake last night but am sure sleepy today.
Church was good today but found out another couple is moving.

Hope Everyone has a good week!!

My oldest great grandson is 15, he is the one that is so picky. I have one grandson not a great that is 36, uncle to the 15 year old. Sorry for the confusion.

It has been one of my days where I start something go in the other room and see something else that needs done, then think of something else I have to get done now, then back to one of the other things and etc. I think I finally got them done. Things including reading my daily Bible, I am reading through the Bible on chronological order, counting out my weekly pills, putting a roast in the microwave to thaw, making the bed, getting dressed instead of cooking with my pj's on, back to put the roast in the oven, back to reading my Bible. My son came for lunch(dinner at my house) and my nephew came. I made brownies, scalloped potatoes and etc. I did finally get my chapters for the day read in the Bible. The dishwasher took care of the dishes and I have not done a whole lot since.

Went out to breakfast this morning with my coworker and 2 FORMER coworkers - we used to work in the same school. One of the teachers has been out since October and is going to have knee replacement.
I had a big breakfast - I like going out for breakfast because you can get a variety of stuff and not have to wash up the extra cookware! Shel

Hummm..... I posted after Shelley's posts about visit to the hospital to see her friend.

Marlene you are sweet to do so much cooking for your family! How old is your Grandson, or is he an adult? It is hard cooking for picky eaters. Glad you got to see him!
Congrats for getting so much done.

Shelley glad you go to see your friend. Wish there was an easier way to exercise but with a bad hip there just isn't!

Tomorrow is going to be an errand day. Keeps me from getting things done at home but it will take some things off the to do list!

Hope Everyone has a great weekend!

I had company Saturday and cooked noon meal. (my son and my nephew) Sunday my granddaughter came with her DH and 4 kids. I cooked again. My oldest great grandson is so picky, the only vegetable he will eat is corn. He does not eat meat unless it is fried chicken or pizza. He likes mashed potatoes but no gravy and he loves home made bread, plain with nothing on it. So I had chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes, corn, peas, machine bread and cherry pie. He does like ice cream so he got that. It is tricky cooking for him but he does not come very often. He lives with his dad and comes to my granddaughter;s every other weekend.
Yesterday I had my nails done and my hair cut then it was so nice outside that I went out in the garage and got rid of boxes, put up the Christmas stuff. My DD came and she vacuumed the rug out there and helped me throw stuff away. Her DH cut up the boxes for recycle.
Today it was in the 70s again, I took my neighbor to the town that is 12 miles and we ate at friendship meals came home and DD came again for a little while. We sat on the deck and visited, i did go water some bushes.

I did not weigh this week probably scare me if I did emoticon

Yes...I went up to see her, and she was surprised and glad to see me, but she was slipping in and out - painkiller. Her sister-in-law was there, and she prayed for me before I left, for my own upcoming surgery.

Shelley just remember knee replacement is much more difficult than hip, when you see your friend! ;-)

Well, I do like that dogs can be taken to visit in Nursing Homes. They have to be clean and groomed and up to date on their shots. But they bring a whole lot of happiness!
Today I have to go for a class that tells about what to expect. It's at the hospital where I'll be going. I found out a friend of mine is having her knee replaced today, so I may pop over to see her. Her surgery's at 10:30, my class is at 2, so I should be out by the time she's coming around, I think. Shel

They sure are! The least amount of time you can spend in one the better! But sure glad they are there when needed. Remember when we were kids. A child had to be 16 yrs old to go visit and adults had to be well to go visit. Now they even take dogs in to visit and no matter of someone is sick. Makes no sense to me!

Hi All, Am feeling so much better today. Am going out to supper with friends.

Shelley think they are trying to stop the super viruses and are grasping at straws. My DH's Aunt had hip replacement 5 yrs ago at age 89 and she didn't do those things nor did she get an infection in the incision. Praying all goes well for you!

Marlene so glad they made it home safely!! Glad you don't have snow either. My DS's are got it. Makes him have to be on call during the night.
It is still dreary and "winterish" here but not cold.

The England family made it home fine. I have not heard from them but my daughter said that her son in law sent an email. And so did his mother.

No snow here, the sun has shined all day today. Not even a sprinkle.

Praying for surgery and for illnesses. Get well quick both of you.

Testing all went well. I got oodles of instructions for before the surgery. Not looking forward to having to stop the pain med a week before... emoticon Then 2 nights before and the night before I have to use these special wipes to wash up, and put on freshly laundered nightwear and sleep in freshly laundered sheets EACH NIGHT, to help prevent incision infection. I dunno if this is something new - or if it's because it's hip surgery. Been a while since I've been cut open.

Marlene please let us know whey your kids arrive home safely. So sorry they had to leave. Families are so separated now and that is so very hard on everyone.
Hope you don't get too much snow. I am surprised we haven't had any snow or ice yet and it is mid January.

I am better today. I think in a couple days, I will be as good as new!! Will be so glad to have this all behind me.

Sun is not shining this morning and it is colder. Supposed to be snow west of here but I don't think it will get this far.

I have some book work to do on the other computer, I need to get my tax stuff together for my CPA. I put things on QuickBooks and give him a USB stick with the info on it.

English grandkids are flying home today, sure going to miss them and pray they have a safe trip. It is worrisome with all the terror in the world. I will rejoice to hear that they are home safe.

We had a really nice time together, almost an hour and a half catching up on everything.

I did my workout today, resistance band and all. Today I go to the surgical center to do whatever pretesting they have to do. I'll bring my stationery with me so I can continue writing letters. Less bulky than the crocheting. Shel

I got some 500 piece puzzles for the kids for Christmas but my bedroom table is covered with ceramics works in progress, so we haven't been able to work them yet.

Today I'm taking a former coworker out for lunch before going to my appt. with the orthopedic doctor. The poor girl was diagnosed with a tumor, and they don't know yet if it's cancerous. Her surgery is a week after mine. Shel

Happy Monday Friends! Looks like we are in for nice warm weather too Marlene!! Not sure about later in the week!

Marlene so glad you had such a nice day with your family!! Those puzzles do take a long time! Love working on them. Don't know how much we will do them now that we have a baby around! He is at the fun cooing and smiling stage!! What a little doll!!
Praying for their safe travels!

Shelley hope you aren't in too much pain today!

The sun is shining today and supposed to be in high 60's. It was probably 70 yesterday but the other shoe will drop later this week and the cold wind will blow once again.

I had a wonderful time yesterday with DD's family, we went to church together and then had a nice meal. I always have a picture puzzle in the works and my granddaughter and her husband worked on it all afternoon. It was funny he said they were staying until it is finished, so funny as it is 1000 piece puzzle, but we did get about half of it done. It will take me a month or more to finish it because I don't work on it that much. They are leaving on Wednesday for home, Prayers, please for safe travel.

Have a great day!!!

DS had to have surgery to clog the bleeding artery. He is home and we are thankful he is mending. I have a cold and can't see him. We will both get better!

I breakfasted and lunched on leftover turkey and gravy and stuffing...It "warmed up" to about 20 degrees today so the kids went outside to play, just for a half hour so they wouldn't get TOO cold. I haven't gone out since I took Abi shopping last week. I'll HAVE to go out when I have my appointments next week.
Did only the presurgery exercises yesterday. Haven't done anything yet today,,, trying to work myself into the mood! I may do them just to warm up - the kids let a lot of cold in the house.

Sun is shining this morning. emoticon Supposed to be in the 60's this afternoon. I am taking a neighbor and we are going to Friendship meals at noon. I started tracking my food this morning, I wonder if I can keep it up. I need to start knowing how many calories I am eating and get back to losing.

I went to Walmart yesterday and bought a lot of fruits and vegetables. I had oatmeal and an orange for breakfast. Sunday my DD and DH are coming for lunch, Their DD and family are coming, too. They leave for home in England next Wednesday. They have been here since Thanksgiving. I know my DD and DH will really miss them so sad that their only grandchildren live so far away, even the step grandson lives in Florida.

Today would be a good day to work in the yard and clean some of my flower beds. Sounds like work to me.

Do you suppose the nose situation is exacerbated by cold, dry air? A couple of my grandkids get powerful nosebleeds in the winter. We try to keep the air moist by setting a pot of water on the stove on low (sometimes add orange, cinnamon, so it smells nice).

The night before last I forgot to take the pain pill, and the following day I experienced more sharp pain in my hip. Extra cold probably didn't help matters either!

I have 3 appointments next week: Monday with the orthopod, Tues. at the hospital for pretesting, and Thurs. at my regular doctor. Surgery in a little less than 3 weeks. I'm looking forward to it.

Sun is shining this morning. They keep saying snow but I think it has gone south of me. My DD says they are coming Sunday to go to church with me and lunch. My DGD and her family are flying back to England next Wedmesday so may not see much more of them. I do have a hair and nails appointment on Monday so may go by for another hug.

My arms have weights on them this morning or so it seems. I don't want to do anything. I could not go to sleep last night until early this morning. Could just be a lack of sleep and rest?

Plus I got a commode from my friend, so I keep that in my room - Seems my DSIL and I have bowels on the same schedule, so this makes it easier! I may have DD take it downstairs to put in the "workroom" so I don't have to struggle up the stairs. Dunno if I'll be sleeping downstairs a while - at least we have a comfy sofa, which also reclines, so I can have options.

Stayed home from church and opted to listen to some sermons from my previous church online. Shel

Right, GG, you don't need someone to tell you the obvious. And you are taking steps to correct the problem.

My daughter convinced me to go for disability NOW, not wait until surgery. After all, it's no good being on the point of tears going in to work, and while I appreciate my coworkers' solicitousness, they should be able to focus on our kids, not on ME. So, I'll be getting the papers to fill out for disability (about /2 my regular pay) to kick in after I use up my remaining, what, 10 or so sick days. Meanwhile, today I did three of Spark's seated workouts. I can't just sit and veg! I need to keep the muscles toned as much as possible and keep the weight off if not lower. So, I should be Sparking more. Shel


Glitterfairy77 is my daughter!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!
