Susan, did you see the exercise of the day? It was one to strengthen wrists.
Jaja, the darn pills are too big. Having real issue taking larger pills lately. I slipped getting in my dh's truck in the snow and wrenched it. It's the knee that I tore the meniscus in several years ago.

Cathy: Have you tried the supplement Glucosamine for your knee? It works for my husband, and it did wonders for our very senior dog before he passed away last year.

I've taken down my Christmas bins down to the basement. Now have to organize them. And, for decluttering, need to go through the Christmas bins I didn't use this season (or for the last several years) and be brutal about what to rid myself of. I was very happy to give a friend my ceramic village of 22 houses/shops/church and 24 small village figurines.

Cathy: Yes, please do let us know when you're surgery will take place. Wishing you all the best with that. The retesting of my eyes in late December was successful. The addition of a second eyedrop prescription brought the pressure down to normal --actually the low range of normal. Just goes to show the importance of an eye exam to catch problems early!

Susan: Just be sure to get that stair railing up before you make a habit of using them. Sure I don't have to impress upon you any dreadful statistics of accidents happening in the home. And we sure wouldn't want anything to happen to you!

I've been pretty lucky (blessed) about having joints in good working condition so far. My right wrist gets strained very easily though, so I'm working on finding techniques to stretch and strengthen both wrists. Very hard to do things like push ups etc.

That would be a great place to walk, even if you can't go up those stairs. I should know when after the eye measurements are done on Wednesday.
Darn knee hurt most of the day. Finally took Aleve and put the brace on and propped it up on the couch. Going to try a walk this morning with the brace to see how it does.

ooh house walking! We have a large Victorian house and it has a back staircase that looks like the side of a mountain. There is no railing up yet. We keep the door closed and some things are stored in that tiny passage way. BUT...when we first moved in and had it opened, it was WONDERFUL for walking throughout the house in.
UP the back staircase through 3 halls, down the front stair case, through the hall, living room, library kitchen and back again to the back staircase.

I'm looking forward to getting that back opened!

Great Butt Toner! lol

Cataract surgery is planned. Hoping that will correct the slight turn in. I am just glad to get something done.
I do house walking in this weather. Even the cats know to stay out of my way. Lol. But when I tried this morning my knee gave me fits. I put some gel on it and hope it works as we have my gd today.

You're right!

As for my day yesterday, I could NOT go swimming due to digestive issues. And then when I had decided that we would go for a walk after taking my son to work, my 16 yr old said, "We can't go for a walk, Mom, IT'S POURING OUT!"

Aw man!

I was productive in other areas, though. And did get my 30 mins of cardio in late last night.

This morning it is SOOOO DARK! The clouds are so thick, it looks like 5am when it was 10:00am! Goodness!
Lots of rain. Roads supposed to be bad later.

My husband's aunt passed away and the funeral is supposed to be tomorrow. Not sure how THAT's going to work out.

And we all lived happily ever after...

Today, my plan is to go swimming after taking my son to work this afternoon, earlier than usual.
Maybe go for a walk.
Get school done with the kids.

I had an EXCELLENT SLEEP last night and feel so rested that I have NO EXCUSE to have an excellent day of productivity.

When my other son comes home, he will help me adjust the leaves in my (mom and dad's) dining room table so it's not in 'holiday company' size anymore.

If my energy keeps up, I can get some re-decorating done.

Oh, my. Maybe you should get the one for deaf people. It's a flashing bright light plus the sound for hearing people.
Another day off. Lots of melt yesterday that defrosted last night. They didn't make the decision until this morning so I am up early.
I did take down the tree in the living room yesterday so guess I will do some cleaning and decluttering today.

Cathy, We have black ice on our driveway this morning and, according to news reports and a friend who has been out and back, on our roads. But the temp is in the low 40's now headed to 50 later today. What a nice break that will be!

My goodness, Susan, that must have been scary!!! Especially with the news of all the raging California fires. The big coincidence is: a few minutes earlier I had replied to a thread of what one is thankful for. The letter was "O" and I replied "Odors - whether attractive to the nose or an alert to danger" -- and I was thinking of smoke from fire or gas from leaking pipe.

I was surprised to learn this week that hitting the test button on a smoke detector is not a good enough indication of it working. That basically just tests the effectiveness of the battery. If the sensor is clogged due to dust accumulated over time, supposedly the only way to test is to wave some smoke in front of it. We're going to test ours using incense sticks. Be sure to use ear plugs to protect your hearing if you do!

Yes, about the feet growing.
Used to be about an 8, then 9, now 10 wide.
My feet ARE flatter. So bummed, because I used to have really cute feet. lol


Our town had a pretty big fire last night. I was choking on the smoke inside MY house, which is about 9 blocks away from the fire. Searched all over my house for the source. Finally my daughter came downstairs and immediately smelled it and helped me look. We went outside and it was even worse, so she took a drive and discovered that an old building was burning.
The building is destroyed. But, thankfully, no one was injured.

And we all lived happily ever after...

LOL, they aren't any older than the rest of your body!
Used voltaren gel on my knee yesterday and it feels a whole lot better---not like a toothache.
Might do a bit more around the house today just because I have off again today. Even the main roads don't have all the lanes open and the secondary roads are a mess.

Susan, Are you aware that feet "grow" (or flatten out and spread) as one grows older, especially after 40 years old. I read where the shoe size needed can increase by 1/2 size every 10 years. I used to be a size 7 for most of my adult life. By now, at almost 68, I've been wearing a size 8 for the last 10 years. And I'm on a diuretic, so my feet aren't swollen. Just "old" -- LOL!

I would assume we can purchase Basic Edition online? I hope so. As to the shoes, I've been needing wide lately with all the fluid retention. Hopefully that changes soon.

When my boys were little I used to do my Christmas shopping there because they had a fantastic lay-away. I have been expecting it because the building has not been in good shape and the store has been ill-kempt for a long time. I too like the Basic Edition---wonder if any other store will start carrying that brand. I used to buy shoes there too until they started to only carry wide shoes for the most part---I have a narrow foot but medium will do but wide definitely won't.
We were going to go out yesterday but dh moved his truck up a bit and almost couldn't get it back in the driveway so we didn't go anywhere. I did go outside the back door and get those steps shoveled off and part of the pathway to my car dug. But my knee was protesting too much to continue. Had to put my brace back on it.

Oh wait...I didn't shop because I LOST weight. I just shopped because I wanted some comfy things. lol

I bought these at Walmart. I grew up with K-mart, but they've not been doing well with having a lot of things we want. I do buy my shoes there and they have the brand of clothes (Basic Edition) that I like and Walmart doesn't carry. I'm heartbroken about the shoes...flats. We drove way out of our way to the far-away K-mart and THEY didn't have them anymore either. :(
Then we tried the mall and went to Sears, to no avail. And finally we got some at Payless, but they are tan, not black, brown or blue which I usually get.

Our K-mart just closed in November or early December. Sad. That was where Mom took us for all our school clothes and put them in Lay-Away. Those were the days!

And we all lived happily ever after...

Susan, love the saying on the nightgown.
Our Kmart is closing. Sorry about that because I do like their clothes. Thinking I might get some more pants even though I don't need them now, I will eventually.

That's a great uplifting message to have on this Chit Chat thread. I'm looking forward to the day when I can go shopping for new clothes (or just "shopping" in my closet) after dropping some weight so that I can feel good in my clothes again. Love your attitude!

Today I had an AWESOME day of shopping for clothes. I can't usually say that. But I got some really comfy stuff, including compression shirt and pants to wear beneath my clothes on these chilly days. Several new underthings and 2 shirts and 1 nightgown.
The nightgown says, "Due to unfortunate circumstances, I am awake."

My 13 yr old got one a couple of months ago and I loved it, but couldn't find one in my size. She found it for me today. GRIN.

I am cozy and cuddly while working out and sparking.
HAPPY SUSAN.

As far as French jokes go, I can't think of anything funny, except to say that I think the French accent sounds like the person has a mouth full of slobber.
(perhaps, my poor ears can't pick up the correct sound?)

And as far as Scottish jokes go, WHO would dare to poke fun at a Scot!?
Actually, my husband is Scotch and Irish and supposedly some line of American Indian.

Half-Polish, too. My mom was full Polish and my dad? He was full of IT! lol. He could tell a story so well, we were never quite sure if he was pulling our leg or not.

He would tell the story about falling off a 40 foot ladder, to unsuspecting people. After you get all freaked out, he then tells us that the ladder was lying on the ground when he 'fell' off of it.

My husband and I had 3 real trees taken down a couple of months ago. It wasn't a lot of work -- just wrote the check! Now I'm in the middle of taking 3 artificial Christmas trees down and stored. And I understand both "senior" and "Polish" moments -- my DH is both, LOL! emoticon

I had a 'senior moment' when I read this post. I forgot we had been talking about taking Christmas Decorations down and thought someone had CHOPPED a tree down on their property and I thought,
"DUDE!!!! They really DID get something done!"

Guess what! I just received an UNEXPECTED BLESSING simply by being committed to a little goal today.
I told myself that every time I went to the back apartment today (generally to use that bathroom),I would not return to the party without putting something back in the place it was supposed to be.

So I did that several times, and it's already looking neater.

But here's the thing. I FOUND an important piece of HARDWARE that was missing from something that I brought from my Mom's house. It's been missing for a few months and turned out to be in a very odd place.
I just HAPPENED to come across it tonight!!!!

I am SOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!

Cathy, That sounds like an awfully LONG day of basketball -- what gives with that?

Susan, So glad to hear that you're feeling better. You've probably already done this, but have you tried keeping a food journal to pinpoint the problems?

I'm finally up and running today on my older laptop after losing wifi connection on it yesterday. Just a simple key to reconnect, but do you think I could figure it out? Much easier to think this morning -- hope that keeps up!

I had a lazy day today, even though I babysat and my oldest daughter brought the Little Ones that SHE babysits over here. My younger kids kept them all busy. So I did a LOT of sitting-sitting, not BABY sitting.

I do feel a bit better. I had my boiled eggs for breakfast again, and that helped.

Now I'm Sparking and getting ready to do my toning. Not quite in the mood, but after being lazy all day, I'd better get to it!
