Monday Ė We visited Mom and Dad today. Mom was in much better spirits. Brought Mr. Spot to visit. That went well. He was a little gentleman. Thank goodness. Mom really enjoyed him.

The sun finally made an appearance around 3 pm. PHEW. Long time no see.

Hereís to a good Monday.

Eliza: Love using the crock pot!

Nola: No, there are no Pollyanna thoughts about Alzheimerís. **SIGH**

Hope you have a great time w/your cousinís reunion.

Dorothy: Thatís probably the most difficult part, not knowing what to expect day-by-day.

Good for you getting the kilz down. That stuff stinks to high heaven!!!

Barb - emoticon It must be so hard to see a loved one change so. My ex husbands mother struggled with mental illness so we never knew what to expect.

I am glad you and Jason got to enjoy your dinner out.

It is 49 out right now and was in the 50's again yesterday - I had the windows and doors open in the rental. But it is going to start getting progressively colder and probably snow once again by weeks end.

Eliza - always nice to get food cooked up ahead for the week. I love a clean kitchen but they never stay that way - the same goes for the bathroom.

Glad your mom is doing well - I nee to stop in and check on mine.

Nola - Glad to hear that Barney got a perfect score!

I got all of the upstairs floors painted yesterday with - kilz - it should prevent any smells - I am going to paint them and seal them a second time this week - that should really take care of any problems. I am getting there.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Dorothy it is so exciting your DDs going on a trip to Africa. What an experience!!
Great temps for winter, it must make it so much easier to get around. Sounds like you had a lovely day with your DDs and Grand kids with bonus snuggles.

Barb that must be lovely to have Jason total time again. It is so sad to see the change in loved ones with Alzheimers. It is a hideous disease. There are just no Pollyanna thoughts about it.

Eliza your bean cookup sounds good. Do they freeze OK. I have never tried to freeze them.

Tomorrow I am meeting up with my cousins again as we have another cousin visiting from the East. They all will travel an hour North and I will go 2 hours South and we will meet again at this beautiful place called Mandurah for lunch. I only have to drive to the station then the rest will be by train. it will be good to catch up with them all.

Barney got a perfect score at the Vet so he is good for a couple more months. emoticon

Sunday Ė Jas and I had a nice supper together last night. Very nice to just relax and breathe a little.

Visited w/Mom & Dad. Mom was in a very nasty mood. I know itís part of the disease, but itís so not her. **SIGH** Difficult.

Otherwise, gray and dreary yesterday, but no snow, so thatís good for almost the end of January!

Blessings and a good Sunday.

Nola: Good luck for Barney! Hope all is smooth sailing.

Nice to potter in the garden. Envious!

Yes, Dad is feeling better with the pain being lessened.

Dorothy: Good luck with the painting and other work!

Close to 60! We hit 51. Not bad for January, eh!

Awwww, grandkid hugs . .. . nothing better.

2 DDís going to Africa! Wow!

Had a wonderful supper out last night and bonus points for no prep, cook or clean up! Yes.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Nola - getting ready to get into the crud and paint - lol! How exciting that the shot has worked on your shoulder.

/We had the most beautiful January day yesterday. The glorious sun made an appearance and it was close to 60. I even saw some people out washing there car. And so many people out walking - amazing what the sun can do.

And I got lots of hugs from my grandchildren, got to see my very talented grand daughter in her show, and lots of snuggle time with my newest grandson who just turned 4 months and got to see 3 of my 4 daughters - so almost perfect.

I do not believe I told you that 2 of my daughters are laving for Africa tomorrow - how cool is that - they will be gone for 10 days.

Barb - ease of mind is so wonderful and how great that your dad is learning the proper way to get out of bed in the morning. I do hope you and Jason had a wonderful birthday dinner.

Eliza - rain - I must say I am, tired of rain. I hope your day is better today

Nice Sunday spent outside which I love. Not too hot, just about right. Barney had his bath today and he is looking beautiful. He has a date with his favourite Vet tomorrow for his free dental check and nail clipping. I usually hold my breath and do his nails, but when they offered I said "Yes Please"

The rest of the day I spent pottering around the garden. We have had a very mild summer so far with only a few really hot days.

Barb I hope you had a lovely birthday dinner for Jason. emoticon Also good that you were able to catch up with your Dads therapist. Great your Dads pain is reduced, it must make life easier for him.

Dorothy are you up to your eyeballs in crud and paint?

Eliza I hope the sun shines on you today. Are you off to the Monastery?

I'll catch you all tomorrow (Monday). Don't forget the Weigh In for the Challenge. emoticon

Saturday Ė Friday had lots of chores to do, but did pretty well completing them! Wanted to leave enough time to meet w/Dadís physical therapist too. And I made it! Dad is doing much better. Only problem is I had to make sure that the technique the therapist wants Dad to use getting out of bed is used. It has decreased his pain significantly. So, talked with the director and got it done.

Jason was 65 on Tuesday, but since he had to work weíre going to go out for his official birthday dinner tonight.

My brother turn 60 today. LORD, being the older sister, what does that make ME?? OLDER! LOL

Ok, letís go out there and make it a good day.

Eliza: Hope that the insurance is sorted out.

Dorothy: I am very pleased that Mom and Dadís needs are being met and know it will take time to adjust.
Slowly but surely!

Safe travels and have fun w/the grandkids.

Nola: Glad to hear that the shoulder is feeling better! Kudos. Hope time two with the right shoulder is easier. But at least youíre prepared for the whatevers.

Dorothy have a lovely time in Buffalo with the Grand children. Great the house is coming together. I am with you on the "never saying never" No one knows what the future holds.

Barb good the new routine is kicking in. Knowing your parents are safe and within easy visiting is good, and Nurse Ratchet can still have an airing if needed. emoticon

Eliza "go girl" on the power workout. When I worked in Physio we were told it is not "No pain no gain" because that causes injuries, it is exercising within the limits of pain that you have to do.....just saying emoticon

Now that I have got over the injections from last week in my shoulder it is feeling great. I have been working the muscles to regain more range of motion. When I go back to the Specialist next month I am hoping I can get an injection in my R shoulder which is the worst one. It will be worth putting up with the vertigo and nauseous stomach to have an end result like this .

Sending prayers and good vibes to your country as you embark on the next four years.

Nola - so glad to hear that Don is feeling well and getting out in te garden. It is such good therapy. Yes - I do have good friends.

Barb - happy you are getting it all sorted out and finding a new routine. I am sure it gives you such a good feeling that mom and dad are being well taken care of and some of your stress has been lifted. I need to start getting my taxes in order.

Eliza - I learned a long time ago to never say never - it seems like it always bites you in the butt.

I did not watch the inauguration -hubby did - I was working on the house - I did see the news this morning - and parts of his speech - I hope it all works out fr the best.

I am headed to Buffalo this morning to see my oldest granddaughter in a show and to see the rest of my grandchildren as well - I am looking forward to it. Tomorrow I will work on the rental - I think I am getting to the point where I can start painting the walls and putting the bedrooms together.

Friday Ė Spent 4 hrs. w/Mom and Dad yesterday. Dad had physical and occupational therapy. I was glad that I was there. NOW I know what to do to encourage him to do what exercises are prescribed for him. He did very well.

Otherwise, sorting thru more papers for his taxes. Thank goodness I have mine organized for our own taxes or Iíd go mad.

HUGS

Dorothy: Glad you had help with the bed, dresser and the rug. As for DH, hmmmmm . . . . needs a well-placed firecracker it seems! OY My DH is like that too.

Oh Dad is definitely in the ďwhatís the pointĒ mind set, but my point is . . . why make your time miserable! Itís not necessary. Weíll see if heís still following thru today! The Nurse Ratchet persona may emerge again. ARGH

Yes, time is a little less choked and yes, I still do worry about both Mom and Dad, but itís a different level of worry. Slowly getting into a new routine and that helps immensely.

Nola: Yes, todayís the inauguration, which is interesting, terrifying, fascinating and more all wrapped into one. Prayers for our country!

Had to laugh. Youíre so right . . . . what would his little girl know! LOL But no matter, as long as he listens to SOMEONE, thatís what counts.

So glad Don is feeling better and doing his gardening! Awesome. Good luck to him on Wednesday.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Today is the day of the big Inauguration. If we want to watch it in real time we have to be up at Midnight for the start. I think I will be giving it a miss. I am sure it will be all over the TV tomorrow. Looking from afar I think the next 4 years will be interesting for your country and the rest of the world. emoticon

Dorothy great to have friends like yours. That help must have been great. You are steaming ahead with the repairs and clean up. emoticon

Barb your Dad is probably listening , and taking notice of what "other people" tell him. After all what would his little girl know emoticon it is good he is getting into his exercising. He will feel so much stronger.

Things are still quiet here. Don is going well and catching up on all his garden work. It is great to see. He has to do his blood taking next Wednesday. I hope he bounces back after it and the good feeling continues.

Nola - thank you - Ilove it - out with the bad vibes and in with the good. emoticon My friend came over last night and helped me to take apart the bed and move the dresser and even helped me to tear out the rug and the tacks. So glad. I will work a half a day today and come home and scrub that floor and start painting the other ones - I should be able to get all of the floors painted and hopefully most of the smell will be gone. Such a good feeling. I will just keep on working on what I need to get done and if hubby does not get busy with his part I will start doing it as well. Time is money and we need to get this done.

Barb - so glad that dad listened. Maybe he realized if he had listened before he would not be in the place he is. but on the other hand I can see him being stubborn. I am sure the older you get the more you may think why bother.

Nola is so right - it must be nice to be able to go out and enjoy yourself and not have to worry about there well being. I am sure you still worry but so much of your burden has been lifted. Good luck with the taxes - they are never fun.

Much to do today - better get busy.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Thursday Ė I was glad that the sun was out yesterday. Made it a much more pleasant!

Had a chat w/the Dr and we will meet again on Monday. Dad is doing pretty well w/physical and I re-enforced with him that he has to do the exercises on his own. That is going to help him build up his strength. Yes. I think he heard!

Thursday is Friday EVE . . . . time to celebrate!

Dorothy: wow you got a lot done. Good job!

Nola: Yes, looking forward to no KP over the weekend.

Dad is pretty organized so getting papers together should be pretty easy, I hope.

Glad you had a quiet day.

Dorothy so good the house is coming together and you are getting all the filth and bad vibes out of it. Nice to have Mike and his good work helping.

Barb that is great you can get out to Celebrate Jason's birthday knowing your parents are safe. Make his birthday last as long as you can. Good to be out of the kitchen. You deserve the relaxation. Hope your Dads papers all come together without too much drama.

Eliza fog and I don't mix. I do hate it so. Stay cosy!

I had a quiet day, apart from the usual chores. It has been so windy, there are a few fires around and a lot of smoke, but drifting in nothing near us.

Hope your Thursday is a good one. emoticon

Barb - filth pit it was - I do not know how people live like that - it makes my stomach roll.

I am glad you were able to get mom back a bit.

I absolutely agree - Jason's birthday does require to birthday dinners out. emoticon emoticon

Eliza - it has been foggy here in the mornings as well.

I ended up calling off work yesterday and tore into the big bedrooms carpet - it is gone - getting all of those tack strips is such a pain but they are all gone too. I scrubbed that floor twice. Plus I painted both closets and the wood work in the bedroom I got the rug out of it - it will feel good to go to work today and rest, I wanted to get the carpet out of the third room but there is a bed and a dresser in there and the bed needs to be torn down and the mirror removed from the dresser - I did not have the right tools for either.

Wednesday Ė well, the icing is not as bad as it has been. PHEW. Visited Mom and Dad yesterday. Mom was confused, but got her back a little bit!

Lots to do today getting Dadís tax stuff together. UGH

Hugs

Nola: Thanks! Jas just has to take care of himself! Wow! Don will be 80. That is wonderful!

Yes, I am just nauseous thinking of all the papers I have yet to sort thru. But have to do it.

OH boy, donít know how much inauguration celebration will be happening, but not a holiday.

Dorothy: Ice is essentially gone now. The sun finally came out. PHEW.

We will go out to supper this weekend for Jasí birthday (we did on Monday already, but Iím game for another day out of the kitchen!)

Sounds like the rental was a complete filth pit! How can people do that/???

Glad DH is getting some things done!

Nola - no we do not get a holiday which is kind of odd I think. Monday was Martin Luther Kind day and even though it is a national holiday I still had to work. It is going to be an interesting 4 years - I do hope to see some good changes.

Nice that you were able to get out and about yesterday. Luckily we did not get much ice. Foggy here this morning.

The computer program is fascinating and would make tracking what we track so much more efficient - once we learn how to navigate it. The nice think about it is it is an IBM program so it will probably be around for a long time plus there are many add ons that we can get down the road. The program that we use now is very shaky - it was never made to hold the amount of information we have in it plus the company is no longer in existence.

Barb - we were lucky and seemed to dodge the ice - I am sure it was icy in some areas but it did not impact me. I hope Jason enjoyed his birthday and newly fixed tooth. Not a very nice present that he got getting hit on the head. Mine hit the top of my friends head one time an she went own - I though she was exaggerating until it happend to me emoticon

I am afraid I too would be guilty of cleaning before the cleaning people arrived.

Eliza - my mother does not get any help either but she is so picky that she would redo it all anyways. Nice that your mother is handing the title over to you.

I think I will take a couple of hours off of work today to get the rugs out of the rental - after all of the scrubbing and work I have done all I can still smell is cat urine - so they need to come out now. Hubby repaired a couple of ceiling yesterday and they look so nice - he does such nice work if I can get him off his butt. He also did some patching so Yea - we are getting closer,.

Barb Happy Birthday to Jason. he is still a chicken. Don is coming up to the big 80 in April. Where has all that time gone. YUK on the sorting of paper work for the tax. That is one of those jobs that you have to put your head down and tail up and just plug away until it is done. It is a great feeling when it is completed.
I am like you I would have to clean up before a cleaner came. emoticon
Watch out on those icy roads/sidewalks. I would be useless now in that situation. I have trouble staying upright on dry ground and pavements.

Dorothy that was great your weight being down. Particularly coming out of the Christmas/New Year bit. Hope you don't get flooding. Is the new Computer system easier to use?

Eliza you are a great daughter helping your Mom. I bet she appreciates it so much, I know I would. Great on your Mom changing the title on her car to you. It must be good to have wheels again.

I had a morning out and about doing food shopping, posting a package, then on the computer paying bills and stuff. It is quite hot and sweaty today, it feels like a storm brewing.

Do you get a holiday for the big inauguration on Friday?? emoticon

Tuesday Ė Despite the cruddy weather yesterday, had tons to do. But got it done early enough to avoid the slip-and-slide outside. The roads, however, are well salted. Sidewalks are another issue altogether. So, until this melts, going to have to be careful.

Got lots of Dadís finances sorted. Have to start looking at documents that will be needed for his taxes. Lord, I am not looking forward to that, but has to be done.

Today is Jasonís 65th birthday! Happy birthday, honey!

Nola: Yup Jason has a big olí bump on the top of his head, but luckily he has a hard head, so no harm done (Ďsept to hit tooth). He got into the dentist yesterday, and the tooth is now repaired.

Glad youíll get home help if and when you have surgery or should the need arise for any other reason. Thatís good to have that in place.

Glad that the injection has worked and youíre feeling better.

Dorothy: YEAH on the downward trend!

Very icy here, but the roads are salted, so will be better a little later.

I WISH SOMEONE WOULD CLEAN FOR ME, TOO! That would be a treat, but then I know myself well, Iíd be cleaning before the cleaners got here. Donít want it to look messy, you know! DOH. Whatís wrong with me! LOL

Yes, the hatch door has a sensor, but only goes up if it ďtouchesĒ something. In this case, it was poor Jasís hard head. **SIGH**

Tooth all fixed. Wallet Ė NOT all fixed. **SIGH**

Yes, it does feel good knowing that there are people looking after both Mom and Dad. Still a bit sad about it all, but I know that'll pass.

HUGS ladies.

Went and saw the nutritionist and was down - I hope that continues. It started to rain on my way there and the temps dropped but luckily I had no problems - although I am sure it is very icy in spots. And our rivers are still very full so it is making me nervous that there may be more flooding. Today I have to sit in on a presentation on a new computer system we may be getting - and I think I will have to stay after work hours for one of the presentations. Most of the company works 8 - 4:30 but I work 7 - 3:30 - which is why it was scheduled at that time.

Nola - that made me laugh. My sister has home carers that clean for her and she is 2 years younger than me - and they run errands for her. I wish someone would home clean for me emoticon I am glad that you were able to get it all set up and to know there is help only a phone call away.

Barb - sorry that mom was being a pickle but did it not feel nice that someone else was helping with the care of her. And don't we all get moody - I think I was a bit yesterday. Ouch - poor Jason - I hoe he is able to get the tooth fixed. Does your van have a sensor in it - mine does but I have been bopped before as well.

Eliza - I still have decoration out - I enjoy them so no hurry taking them down,



Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Barb great to have Jason home for a long weekend. Youch on the bonk on his head. Hope you can get him to a dentist to fix the tooth before too long. Were you able to have a bit of relax time together over the weekend. emoticon

Eliza bummer on the computer. It seems you just get one thing right and then another has a hissy fit. I hope it is easy to get going again. emoticon

DorothyI bet you have been going like a beaver over the weekend in the house. You definitely need to go back to work for a rest. I can't believe people would leave a place like that. emoticon

We had the Home Care lady today. It is all set up now if I do have to have surgery on my shoulder or any other whoopsies We will get home help re showering, cleaning, etc etc for 3 months. So we only have to make a phone call to them. So that is good to have that sorted.

I am feeling good again and I think the injection has worked in my shoulder. still have to be gentle with it for another 48 hours.

Have a good Tuesday! emoticon

Monday - Well, not a bad weather day . . . . no precipitation. But today . . . . not supposed to be so lucky.

Glad that Jason has today off for MLK day.

Yesterday he was putting the hatch down on the van and wasn't out of the way. Got bonked on the head. He's all right, just a bruise. BUT he cracked a front tooth. Praying he can get in to the dentist today. It doesn't hurt, but a little sharp edge. **SIGH**

Mom was in a very bad mood yesterday. SIGH, but Dad was all right, so visited with him.

That's about all the news that's fit to print.


Dorothy: Thatís disgusting that someone would not vacuum in ONE YEAR! OMG. I can only imagine the mess you had to deal with.

You just have to wonder how someone could live like that. **SIGH*

Nola: Wise choice . . .. the middle ground. Wow! You are entitled to a home care cleaner, assuming you qualify. Awesome.

I have been lucky that I never have had allergies to cats or dogs. it must be awful. I hope you can get those rugs out soon Dorothy and get your health back.

Weird day today. Took Cheyenne to the bus (she drove) then went for our bone density tests only to find our appointments had been messed up. Decided we wouldn't re schedule. We only had it done last year and there will be another one next year. Came home to a phone call from the HACC (Home and Community Care) person to say she is coming to assess us tomorrow to get us into the system for possible help now or in the future. Major thinking do we fly around the house and do a big cleanup to make it look like we don't need a home care cleaner, or do we leave it to make it look like we do.We ended up choosing he middle ground with everything tidy with out being squeaky clean. So we will see how we go.

Off to watch some TV. Have a good Monday emoticon

I do have 2 cats myself - but I do not let them in my bedroom - and I also have 2 dogs. I have just learned over the years to wash my hands after I pet them and to keep the house vacuumed. I do not think they vacuumed the rental in over a year - ugh.

I tore up one of the nasty rugs yesterday and scrubbed the floor 3 times - I will paint it later this week. I also got a lot of wood work painted yesterday - I am getting there but I have 2 more nasty rugs to get out of there.

Barb - I think it is good that the PT is there to help your dad and we will not be able to hide from them - lol. - or have an excuse for not showing up.

Glad you got your new hot water tank all set up and working - we do love our hot water.

Good that Cara was able to get hings sorted out as well.

I did enjoy my lunch but was there much longer than expected and did not get back over to the house to work so I am glad I went over before I left,

Nola - so glad you got to enjoy your time with Cheyenne - you are such a good grandmother. I hope your bone density tests go well,

Eliza - you are so committed and so admirable.

I am thinking that another reason I am fighting not feeling well is the rental - since they had dogs and cats and left such a mess and I am allergic to dogs and cats - ugh - I really need to get those rugs out of there - it should help.

Yes, hot water now, and Clara has things figured out. Good grief. She has growing up to do, but thatís not unusual @ 21.

Dad is not happy about having physical, occupational and speech therapies but he NEEDS them.

A good last day with Cheyenne. We went out again in the car to get her another hour on her tally. She goes early in the morning and then we go for our annual bone density scan.

Barb it is good that your Dad will be starting his program. Also the new heater is going and Clara is sorted. Breather time for you today emoticon

Dorothy it is amazing what a good scrub and a paint will do to a place. I hope it doesn't take too long to get rid of the smells. Did you have a lovely lunch with your friend and daughter. emoticon

Eliza Did you have a lovely day with the nuns at the Monastery ? It sounds so peaceful. emoticon

Saturday Ė Early to bed last night. Exhausted! BUT we now have a new water heater, Clara got her keys and rental car and thatís a good start to TODAY.

Dad has his PT eval yesterday. Will have to work on upper body and legs, but strengthening in general. Also being evaluated for speech and occupational therapy. THIS IS VICTORY to me. NOW he has to do the exercises. Believe me when I say, Iíll make sure he does. Didnít inherit stubborn genes from both parents NOT to use them. HEE HEE

Hope itís a good Saturday.

Dorothy: Exactly what I thought about the water tank! Lord. Mechanicals for the house are just not built to last like they were in the past, sadly. But we have a new one, have new water and should be set. PHEW.

Oh AAA takes FOR-EV-ER to answer distress calls. **SIGH**

Glad that you got to have lunch w/your friend. Gotta do that once in awhile.

Hope youíre feeling better and that the humidifier is helping.

Nola: Hope your vertigo is gone now and that youíve recuperated from the injections.

Ah it gets the heart beating for sure When Cheyenne drives! Donít know how we survive this phase w/kid/grandkids.

Ah yes, payback. I have given Clara the ďMomís CurseĒ Ė May you have many children just like you! LOL Karma . . . well, wouldnít wish yesterdayís experience on anyone, but I know if she has kids sheíll probably go thru it.

Yes, we now have hot water. They finally finished the installation around 6 pm.

Awwww, you will miss Cheyenne for sure.

Eliza: Hope you're having a good Saturday.

Barb - well that is the third hot water tank - hopefully we are done with them. First Eliza's, then mine and now yours. I remember having one years ago that leaked but I cannot remember why it leaked emoticon So glad that mom and dad are settling and that they had a good day and are getting good care. What a relief that must be. I remember the time I got my van stuck in mud and my daughter came out to help as it was about half way to her house. We were waiting forever for AAA to come pull me out and her friend showed up and pulled me up. Got me out just as AAA showed up - in the meantime she had locked her keys in her car so AAA got her door open, What a night. Made sure I knew where I was parking after that - lol!

Nola - not already - that was fast - I am glad you got to spend so much time with her. What a gem she is. I bet Barney is going to miss her. I am glad to hear that your recovery is going well. emoticon

Eliza - I hate being cold. I also hate how expensive-vehicles are - lol - what is one to do?? emoticon

I ended up taking yesterday off and took care of my recycling and finished painting the kitchen in the rental - also did more scrubbing - I think I am slowly getting rid of the smells. Today I am meeting a friend and my daughter for lunch - its about an hour drive for me - another reason I took yesterday off so I did not feel too guilty today - lol!

Feeling a bit better today. I went out with Cheyenne for an hour this morning while she drove (shudder shudder). She has to get 50 hours of driving before she will get her license. Actually she was very good. I didn't feel nervous at all. She has been driving on her other Grandparents farm for a few years now. Then I have been taking it easy for the rest of the day. Anaesthetics always stuff me around for days.

Dorothy a humidifier sounds like the way to go. I hope you are feeling better. Did you buy any rugs? Good you were out of the floods. emoticon

Barb I hope you are around when Clara has children her age now, and you can think Karma..what goes round comes round and try not to smile at her coping with it. I hope you were able to get the water heater fixed.

Eliza do they have heating in the Monastery. When I think of Monasteries I think of big cold stone places. Hope you rug up well. Sad you have to spend money on your Moms car but good it is not urgent. emoticon

Cheyennes last day tomorrow. We will miss her as we always do. emoticon

Friday Ė busy day yesterday. Had things to get that Dad requested, so got them and dropped them off this morning. Then had to go grocery shopping and catch up on lots of household chores that have been very neglected.

Stopped by Mom and Dadís again in the afternoon as the Dr. was there. Caught up on the care plan for both of them. Very pleased. Dad is feeling better, which is so good to see and Mom was in good spirits! Yes. A good day.

OMG, right now itís 5:17 am. Woke up to a leaking water heater. Canít call the plumber till 7 am.

THEN discover Clara isnít in her room. Got a text from her. She went to pick up a friend who is in jail because she ďearnedĒ a DUI. OMG And now sheís locked her keys in a RENTAL car. Just shoot me now.


Dorothy: so sorry to hear about the flooding! Glad it didnít impact you directly, at least that part is good.

Hope the humidifier helps. Before we got one, I was getting sinus headaches all the time. Good luck.

Nola: Hope youíre feeling better too.

Sheesh, we need to get healthy, guys!

Barb - glad to hear that Mr Spot was able to help sooth your mom. We had flooding all over our county yesterday - it did not impact me directly but they apparently had trouble getting some of the kids home from school. 2 hour delay this morning. And now it is 29 out so any standing water has probably turned to ice - ugh! Then next week it is suppose to get mild out again and go into the 40's - I guess mother nature can not make up her mind.

Nola - sorry to hear to hear of your vertigo - I have never experienced it but I hear it is quite nasty. I bet Don, Cheyenne and Barney are relishing taking care of you for a change.

My back is still pretty tight but not quite as bad. I rode out with my girlfriend to look at some rugs as they were having a big sale so I think doing nothing helped. But today I am taking off and planning on getting some things done - and getting hubby motivated to get busy I have been waking up with headaches and sore throats so I am thinking our house is too dry - I think I may put a humidifier in my room tonight and see if that helps.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Sorry I missed yesterday. When I got out of bed I had the most extreme Vertigo and nausea. I have never had it before. So yesterday was spent just doing nothing. It was horrible. I was scared I was going to be left like that after injections. Today I feel a lot better not much balance problems at all. Still going to take it easy. My carers Don, Cheyenne and Barney are doing a good job.

Barb so good things are finally coming together re your parents. Great idea to take Mr Spot for a visit. Good for Mr Spot as well as your Mom. We have been watching the awful weather that is happening over there on world news. Stay safe. Good you are getting a bit of a breather. You well and truly deserve it. emoticon

Eliza hope the Priest appreciated your cleaning. I am like that as well always doing the big cleanup before company. Lovely to have your house blessed. emoticon

Dorothy I hope your aches and pains didn't develop into something nasty. Keep up the Yoga it is so good. I hope the renovating goes well. I guess like all renovating when you get one thing done you see 10 others that need doing. emoticon

Thank you for all the get well wishes. I am getting there I just didn't think it would be this bad.

Thursday Ė Took Spot to visit Mom and Dad. Mom had a melt down, but Spot helped soothe her.

Had more things to straighten out, but think weíre all good to go now.

Awful weather. Freezing rain, win, and snow again. But at least the roads are drivable.

HUGS

Dorothy: Hope your neck and back feel better. Yoga stretches help me when I get that. I get a ďcrickĒ in my neck every once in awhile and itís like an electric shock going up to my head if I turn my head the wrong way. Yoga stretching is the only thing that released the nerve that is pinched causing the pain!

Hope all is safe with the flooding! We were supposed to have more snow, but guess itís holding off for now but itís slick out there, because all the rain we had the day before yesterday is frozen.

Nola: Hope you're on the mend again after your shoulder procedures. HUGS

Nola - I hope you are doing well. emoticon emoticon

Barb - there is always some factor thrown in to make it difficult - ins't there. Glad you were able to get the meds taken care of and now onto the PT I must say we had a beautiful day here - even though it was only in the 40's it was sunny and no rain or snow. Today suppose to get into the 50's and rain - flash flood warning everywhere. If this keeps up we will not have to worry about our well at the cabin this summer.

Eliza - I always laugh at myself when I clean before company comes. Especially as my one daughter always brings her dog. That means I have to clean when she leaves too - lol!

I did some yoga yesterday and my back and neck felt so much better but this morning they are just killing me - I guess I will have to do yoga again,. Probably did not help that I did more scrubbing in the rental and carried my sweeper over and back.

Wednesday Ė well yesterday was awful weatherwise. Freezing Rain, snow, wind . . . . Just ugly!!! But should be a little better today.

Think I got the majority of the medication issues fixed. Now to find out the results of Dadís physical therapy. Hope thatís available today.

Otherwise, hoping to catch a breather today.

Nola: Glad youíre following Drs. orders. Feel better! Bet Barney is loving being able to sit with you and Iím sure Cheyenne is a big help!

HUGS

Dorothy: Our weather was indescribably horrid yesterday. Included rain, freezing drizzle, freezing rain, plain olí ice and then snow. ACK! Just not nice. And now . . . wind. No power problems, thank goodness! Hope you get all the mechanicals re-set!

Hope you feel better!

Eliza: My house needs a once over for sure, but slowly, things are getting back into a new routine.

Nola - do take care - i bet Cheyenne will love doting on her grandmother. And Barney will probably love that you are actually sitting still.

Barb - that is a wonderful idea to take Mr Spot - I bet they will both enjoy that and with nice lines they will start feeling like they are right where they are suppose to be. It is amazing to me how much nice linens make a difference. We had nasty rain yesterday and make everything a slush mess and our power must have gone out during the night a everything is blinking, That wind just made it miserable yesterday.

Iliza - i hope the house blessings go well.

Allergy shots for me today and will probably start pulling things out of the walls in the rental downstairs to get ready to paint. Hubby is moving in slow motion - I am about ready to start doing all of the patching myself. He is so good at it but I do not have patience with how slow he is moving and after 2 seeks my patience is just about at the end.

Not sure what is going on with me but such a bad headache the last 2 days and my whole backside hurts from my neck down to my black including the back of my arms. Not sure if it is weather related or if I am fighting off something.

Tuesday Ė Well, bought Mom and Dad comfortable bed linens, so I think that will help them feel more ďat homeĒ. That makes ME feel better.

Ugly weather day yesterday. Snowed and gray and dark all day. Not much snow, just enough to be a total nuisance.

Nola: Words cannot express how much I miss them, but have to get used to it. *SIGH*

Glad you got your stuff donated AND Barney got a soft toy!

Wishing you all the luck w/your MRI, x-rays and injections. Prayers.

Dorothy: Mr. Spot keeps looking for Mom. Canít explain it to him, know itíll take time for him to adjust, too. Poor boy. But I AM taking him with me to see my parents later this morning.

We got the freezing rain, and snow overnight, and still some this morning. Next is the wind advisory. Itís wicked windy out there.

Hurray Ė no holiday weight! Awesome.

Eliza: Good you have your Momís car to use while yours is indisposed.

Nola - will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers today - I hope all goes well. I bet it feels so wonderful having gotten rid of so much stuff.

Barb - I bet it seems so quiet with no one there to be fussing over. But I bet the time you spend with them is much better quality as you do not have to be doing all of the caring. What does Mr Spot think about all of this??

Eliza - probably a wise choice to stay home and give yourself a chance to feel better.

We are under yet another esther advisory - this one is for snow, sleet and rain which is going to make our roads a mess as well as our sidewalks. What a winer. WE are also under a high wind advisory which will make walking across the parking lots to the other buildings at work loads of fun.

I do have some good news - I went and saw my nutritionist and I did not put on any holiday weight - yea for me.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Mid afternoon and time out time for a cuppa emoticon We have just returned from the Red Cross shop with an empty car, we got rid of all the "stuff". Only thing bought was a soft toy for Barney. emoticon emoticon

Barb it makes you realise how your brain must have been always in overdrive and multi task mode, when you had to do everything. It is a weird feeling that empty space and will take a while to get used to reprogramming it. You must miss them so much. emoticon

Eliza are you driving your Moms car? emoticon

Dorothy hope the snow has let up and you get some respite from the shovelling. emoticon

Tomorrow is my big morning at the hospital having Xrays. MRI scans and then Injections under Imaging all on my shoulders. I am glad Don is well enough to do the driving and we don't have to fuss about finding someone else . Not looking forward to it but if it helps that will be good.

Monday Ė Jas is back to work, a new routine begins. Praying and having courage that this is what is meant to be!

HUGS

Dorothy: In the 20ís here today and now itís snowing. Canít win! LOL

HOLY smokes, though, will not complain too much about snow given the amt. you have! UGH.

Eliza: Hope youíre feeling better.

Nola: BWAHAHAHA. Yes, getting up @ Sparrow Fart to see Jason off. Thatís too funny! But itís less hectic cuz Iím only getting breakfast for he and I, not Mom and Dad as well.

Definitely during the day itís the hardest when Clara and Jason are gone. So quiet. BUT I am off to visit Mom and Dad a bit later this morning.

Glad Cheyenne is helping you with the sorting! Good job.

Eliza I hope your cold doesn't get too bad. It is good your Mom is taking supplements. At least you know she is getting her nutrition. Did you get to church?

Dorothy we use area rugs in the winter and roll them up and put them away in the summer. I hope you get a rest at work emoticon you have been so busy. It must be awful to just get the snow all shovelled and then it is back again emoticon

Barb yeahh on getting your sleep caught up. Are you still getting up at Sparrow fart to see Jason off to work? It will take a while for everyone to settle in to the new way of life for your Mom and Dad. Are you starting to get a bit of "Me" time, or are there still a lot of loose ends to tie up emoticon

We had a good day. Cheyenne helped me do some more sorting and tossing. Have a pile in the car to take to the Red Cross shop next time we are out and about..

Eliza - I was thinking more like area rugs than throw rugs - sure do not want anyone slipping and falling. I hope you are feeling better and that your mom is eating.

Barb - It sure will take time for all of you to adjust to this - one day at a time and one step at a time. And letting them know how much you love them - you will all come through this just fine. 8 here this morning but we are suppose to get into the 20's today and 50's on Wednesday - crazy weather. The paper said that we set records for our December snow fall this year - yea for us.

We probably got about 8 to 10 inches more of snow - I Shoveled 4 different times - thank god it was not heavy - I also worked in the house - more scrubbing and got some painting done. It will be good to go to work today to rest - lol.

Nola - I am so glad to hear that your visit went well - I have to be careful how much coffee I drink as well. Itis so nice that Cheyenne is there and is helping you to sort and toss.

Eliza - nice that your got to spend some time with a friend and have a warm drink. Enjoy your day visiting with your mom - I should go check on mine.

Barb - it is good to hear that they are settling and that dad is able to have his computer and cell phone. I bet it is god for both of them to be around other seniors in the same boat as them. And with you checking in on them daily I am sure that they will get the proper care. Its the ones that are not checked in on that i would worry about.

The garage sale was freezing - I did not last long but hubby went back twice - he bout 5 doors, some trim work for different rooms and 3 beds - now we have to just get everything installed and get him working on patching the walls so I can get painting. At least I think he is on board with sanding the wood floor and sealing them - I am so tired of dealing with rugs - would much rather just have trow rugs, And we are under yet another lake effect storm watch.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Sunday and a quiet day. It was a big day in Perth yesterday, so today is just taking it easy.

Cheyenne and I have looked through a bit of stuff and tossed some. Plenty more to do.

Have a lovely peaceful Sunday everyone emoticon

Barb you sound so much happier. So good to have a caring Dr, who thinks and agrees with how you see things for them. Your Dad will be happier with his Computer up and running.

I'm off to bed. have a good day. emoticon

Saturday Ė got Dadís computer hooked up for him today. Nice. Heís happier. Had a great meeting w/their new Dr. I am over the top with him. Weíre definitely on the same page. Definitely. I feel more hopeful for Dad now. Tomorrow weíre going to review Momís care plan.

Exhausting day, but things will ease into a pattern.

Eliza: Yes, it is not how I had things envisioned in my mind, but for sure theyíre safe and cared for, so the facility is working out and I will continue to go there daily and make sure theyíre doing all right. Dad has his cell phone, too, so he can call anytime.

Dorothy: Right now itís -1F, donít know what the wind chill is, but donít wanna know. . . will just make me more cold!

Glad you got back to your spinning class.

Love garage sales. Used to do that every weekend w/Mom. Fun.

OH NO on the frozen water! Had to keep our tap dripping to prevent freezing pipes. Most of the pipes, however are insulated. Itís mostly the ones like our laundry room which are on an outer wall that would get cold enough to freeze.

Nola: Glad you had a good time visiting.

HUGS ladies. As usual, it seems, on the run again.

Had a lovely day in Perth with my Neice in law, and Cheyenne. Too much coffee.I haven't had any for a couple of years, it was nice, but it makes me jittery.

Dorothy I love garage sales. I hope you get some bargains. I have to stop myself going now as we really need to have one of our own. Have fun!! emoticon -2 definitely sounds nippy emoticon

Barb I hope you found your parents a bit more settled. emoticon

Eliza Happy Epiphany to you as well. Maytags are supposed to be so good. emoticon

Eliza - what on earth did you do with now water - or was it just the hot water? I had had to heat water before for hot water. I hope you enjoy your new machine.

Barb - I am glad that the transfer went well and you were able to get them somewhat settled - I hope the visit went well and that they are both adjusting. -2 here this morning - a bit nippy - suppose to be in the teens all weekend and then back into the 30's next week.

Nola - glad you enjoyed your anniversary and hope the visit went well with your nephew's wife. Always nice to catch up.

Spinning class is kicking my butt but it does feel good to be back. Hubby and I are going to hit a garage sale this morning - lots of wood, doors, and cupboards someone is getting rid of- not sure if anything will work for us but we will go take look - always love a good bargain - other than that I will be working in the rental today and trying to stay warm. The water to my washer is froze right now emoticon

Eliza Yuk on getting the fine...not good. Someone filling in their time trying to fill their quota for the day! emoticon

Dorothy that must have been awful going down into the basement and finding that mess. So good to have a hands on hubby plus Michael to fix it all up.
Barney is certainly getting mega attention from Cheyenne and he is making the most of it emoticon

Barb I hope all is going well . Thinking of you!! emoticon

Tomorrow Cheyenne and I are going down to Perth city to meet up with my favourite nephews wife who is over from the East visiting family. It will be good to catch up with her as I haven't seen her since 2010.

Friday Ė didnít get much sleep last night, but I know things will get better. Bitter cold out.

Mom and Dad did pretty well with being transferred from hospital to the facility given the bitter temperatures. Had a blanket for Mom and was glad I did.

Will go there later to see them and HOPE they had a good night sleep.

Hugs

Dorothy: Thanks. The transfer was a bit difficult as it was bitter cold (-2F w/wind chills well below zero). But Got Mom and Dad settled as best I could. Mom is not happy, but I know it's going to take a while for her to adjust.

Otherwise, just utterly exhausted.

Barb - I do hope the transfer went well and that they are comfortable. Thinking of you dear friend.

Eliza - tht happend to us one time - and it is funny because we had parked that way many times before - I guess sometimes there panties just get all twisted - lol.

Nola - emoticon emoticon So who is enjoying Cheyene more - you or Barney??

I came home last night to no hot water so I went into the basement to see if the pilot light needed lit and there was water everywhere. Thank god hubby was able to get a new water heater and get it installed so we have hot water this morning. And is sure was nice having a strong son to help him.

Barb I hope the transfer goes smoothly. I'll be thinking of you all. It will be difficult, but knowing they will be cared for and you can return to being 90% daughter and 10% care giver instead of being 110% caregiver and hardly anytime to be a daughter, it will be a win win situation. Lots of prayers and hugs coming your way. emoticon

Eliza Cheyenne is our 16 yr old GD. We have had more to do with her than any of the others so we are close. She is a joy to have around.

Dorothy good you finally got the cell phone going. Phone companies are a law unto themselves.
Hope the storm missed you!!

Cheyenne is here and Barney is giving us the cold shoulder and getting cuddles with her. emoticon

Tomorrow (Friday) is our 49th Wedding Anniversary. The time just seems to have gone so fast. Bottle of bubbly already getting cold, emoticon

Barb - I am glad to hear that you are finding peace and that your dad is helping to make decisions. I hope and pray that everything continues to go smoothly.

Elizaa - it is the only way to do anything - day by day and step by step.

Took care of my sisters cell phone yesterday - she has been on my plan for several years and has my old flip phone. AT&T no longer supports it so they us a new flip phone free of charge but it has taken forever to get it activated. The first time i called the number I was told it was activated so I dropped it off to her but it did not work., She took it to the AT&T store but they would not do it for her so I Tried on line and on phone but no luck. So yesterday I finally went to the store - it took all of 5 minutes - it just aggravates me. But at least it works now.

Wednesday Ė wiped out! Spent all day @ hospital yesterday. I am very glad that things are moving forward to make sure my parents are well cared for. Had a good conversation w/Dad yesterday, so feel much more @ peace w/the decision to move forward with getting both Mom and Dad in the memory care facility. They will be together. That is ultimately important! And it will be that way.

So, lots to do.

Hugs

Eliza - good luck with the new washing machine.

Nola - I do agree - it is amazing what gets unders washers, refrigerators and stoves. I am always embarrassed.

How nice that Cheyene can make the trip herself now. I know how much you will enjoy having her there and how much she will brighten up the house,.

Renters - ugh!

Barb - emoticon emoticon I know you will figure out what is best for everyone.

We are under yet another storm watch. All the snow we got just before new years has melted and now we are suppose to get more. These kind of winters make me crazy with all of the fluctuating temps. So going from the high 30's to the teens. emoticon
