Hope everyone is having a good evening!!!

Kathy I am so glad that the service turned out nice. I sure hope you can catch up on some much needed rest... But not during the Super Bowl , I guess, LOL

Barb, I think it will be about 70 degrees and I know I will enjoy that part of the trip. I haven't seen my brother in a long time so that will be good. Glad you had a happy day walking all over Kuna! :)

Roberta, I still wear my heavy coat to walk too. I am a baby about being cool. I am so glad to hear that you are having some really good days, emoticon

Long day but the service was very nice.
I pretty wiped out today I think I shall go to bed now.

I will be back to my regular posting tomorrow or maybe Monday. I think the only thing I will do tomorrow is my walk and be a veggie the rest of the day. Of course I will be watching the super bowl tomorrow because I am doing the super bowl exercise challenge sparkpeople put out. Last year it was a killer.

Hello ladies! I walked all over Kuna today. I didn't start until 12:30 so by the time I was heading home, I almost needed to take my coat off! Working on getting some laundry done before heading out for dinner with some friends from work and then off to Bunco.

Kathy, how was the service? Did your siblings appreciate the work you put into it? I'm looking forward to the stories..we might have to have a mall walk before Spring!

Roberta, I'm happy to hear that you are feeling so good! Walking in the fog does sound like a good idea...assuming you have sidewalks the whole way. We don't have that here, so I'm a little reticent to try it! LOL!

Christine, how fun! I love going to Las Vegas! Do you know how warm it is down there? If you walk the strip, you'll easily meet your step goal. Hope you have fun!!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Good morning, Christine. Oh, how I am looking forward to walking in 50 deg days. This is still heavy coat and gloves weather, BUT, I may be getting used to cold weather. That is what natives tell me. ;-D

Good morning everyone!!!

Roberta, I waited and got my walk yesterday in the "heat" of the day, LOL It was almost 50 degrees out there!

Kathy, glad she isn't "family" and I clearly hope they break up soon, she does not sound like a good fit for being part of your family.

I am getting ready to go to Las Vegas next Wednesday. My brother lives there and he needs some of DH's help. Mostly with his cars.

I took a walk in the fog twice yesterday. It was such a sweet, calm atmosphere--quiet like overnight snow. The air was fresh and clean. Nice.

Just checking in to say I am still kicking.

Tomorrow is the service, I think I got everything done.

Oh and Christine I don't consider my brother's girlfriend family. They haven't been going out that long. I think I won't have to put out a contract on her because several other in the family might do it for me or do it themselves. Tomorrow is the last day I should have to deal with her for awhile. Unless she decide to tell me how to handle my mother's estate, which I am sure she will. ok her I am ranting again and I haven't even told you the stories yet. I will save it for our walk on the greenbelt this spring.

Goodnight all I really need a full nights sleep.

Roberta, yay for feeling good! Yesterday I didn't feel well all day. Headache and stuffy head but I took some of the "emergency" stuff and today I feel decent again. Even plan on sewing today.

Barb your weekend sounds really nice! I plan on watching the Super Bowl too. Cynthia told me the broncos are in it! Woohoo, I do like them. Also good vibes for Bunco! :)

Kathy, I am sure you have your head down and working on the photos... sorry it is so late minute for you...

Kathy, hope you were able to get some sleep. And I'm sorry that you have to deal with your brother's girlfriend. Maybe after this weekend, you will get a break from her for a little while.

Roberta, thanks for the link!

Christine, what rotten luck that you needed to go somewhere on the one day it decided to snow! I'm glad you were able to get there and back and get your coffee.

Starting a four-day weekend!! Even after I take Monday off, I'm still about 20 hours short of the "encouraged" time off at work. Not sure how hard I will try to take the time off. Planning to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday and we have Bunco on Saturday.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Good read Roberta!

Kathy, sorry about your brother's new girlfriend. Why does there always have to be one "pain" in the family?

I had to get up this morning and go get my bloodwork drawn. I hate my tiny veins! Finally got my coffee... catch everyone later when I am fully awake!

I will try and catch up with everyone tomorrow but for tonight I must go to bed. I don't know why I keep waking up at 4:30 it is no longer necessary. I need to start going to bed earlier but I have always been a night owl.


I keep thinking I am going to meet myself either coming or going.

And if'n I had an uncle Quido I would put out a contract on my brother's new girlfriend. Just saying. And I won't go into a long rant like I want because I really need to go to bed.

Whooping Cough. It is possible to go online now to find out what is in the vaccine. My shot had four things: I was unable to understand two, another was formaldehyde, and aluminum. If you are sensitive to deodorants, antiperspirants, sunscreens, or some skin lotions, check the ingredients for aluminum in any form.

Roberta, well I opted not to get the flu shot but I sure didn't know about vaccines giving problems! Yikes! What was the vaccine for? I have gotten several! Now I am worried about getting anymore of them!

There is more information about aluminum toxicity, especially regarding vaccines. Dr. Mercola has a good article about this. This was recognized in the UK long before the US. I was not getting help at home, so I spent ten days in Rochester, MN, at the Mayo clinic. They did all sorts of tests, and the only help they could give me was physical therapy. They diagnosed chronic fatigue and insomnia, which are two symptoms of aluminum toxicity. i was a healthy, active woman, volunteering at a hospital May 7, 2012, and had the vaccine. It turned me into a cripple in 24 hours! Pain! Lots of Pain! It took two years of searching before I knew what was in the vaccine, and four years to find a possible solution. I will pick up the silicon-rich mineral water today--consume one liter a day for 12 weeks.

I have disposed of aluminum cookware and foil and everything containing aluminum. I refuse all vaccinations. I read labels on everything before buying. I follow Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint lifestyle, and avoid all GMO grains. Grain Brain is a good read.

Christine, my focus is on my legs (therapy exercises) and taking tons of supplements to nourish my body, and silicon-rich mineral water to leach the toxic aluminum out of bone and tissue. I monitor all everything that goes into my body to avoid any more exposure to that metal. It is in lots of things we use every day--deodorants, antiperspirants, lotions, baking powder, vaccines, etc., etc. Oh, forgot. It is in some toothpastes!

Getting my good health back has been my main concern. Shedding excess pounds would be a bonus.

Good that your sewing was easy to fix.

Wow I am just now getting here! I had a busy day with errands and stuff. The best news is my sewing machine is not broken. There was a thread problem that I didn't see but the sewing machine repair guy did. Yippee!

So Hi everyone!

Barb, I don't weight in everyday but I think maybe I should. I have cornbread sitting on my counter too! Who ended up making it?

Kathy, I hope you can get everything done on time. Can I bring you gallons of coffee?

Roberta, I guess we are all in the same boat for getting some sneaky pounds off. I did go to the gym today and sit a really fast mile on the elliptical. I am making sure I take an aspirin and also a calcium pill before I go. That has really helped me. Are you doing a fitness program?

Kathy, if there is anything I can do to help you with the funeral, let me know. I'm sorry your body woke you up so early, but at least you were able to sign up for another week of walking. Hope you win lots of free stuff!!

Roberta, I'm a daily weigh-in person too, but I have to be careful to make sure that my weight doesn't affect the rest of the day. Hope that trick works for you!

Christine, spring is getting closer and the weather isn't too bad. I think we can do this!!

I made stew and cornbread for dinner. It was SO hard to only have one piece of cornbread...I still want some! I'll have more tomorrow and I'm holding on to that thought.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Oh and Roberta those pounds can sneak on easily. To bad they don't sneak away as quickly and as easily.
I became a daily weigher because I am so afraid of those sneaky pounds. I know every time I walk by Great Harvest Bread company I gain a pound just my smelling the heavenly aroma of baking bread.

Hello Christina, Roberta, Barb and Kelli and anyone else who is lurking out there.

I am doing well but tired. I think the only thing that is keeping me sane is my early, very early, morning walk. My family has all went brain dead. I was going to sleep in this morning and walk outside this afternoon. But no my body has become use to waking up at 4:30, I tried to go back to sleep but after laying there for an hour I got up and went for the mall walk. Which was a good thing because it was "meetmeMonday" I forgot until I seen them set up at the mall.

Barb the funeral is on Saturday. I got a lot to do between now and then. And the sibs have added a job. All the sibs are bringing me pictures to scan and make into a slide show. The sad thing about that is I asked 18 months ago for the pictures to make a slide show. Now I have less then a week and won't get some of the pictures to scan until Wednesday night. Ok I will quit whining. It will keep me busy.

I am a master procrastinator, but my siblings are better procrastinators then I am. Sad but true.

Kathy, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I'm glad they were able to make her comfortable in her last few days. When is her funeral?

I'm going to go watch that Ted Talk right now! Thanks for posting it!

I did find things to do this weekend. And I even found time to let DD do my nails.

A chuckle for today:

My DD noticed that her dog's stuffed squeaky toys were being moved from the patio to the far corner of the backyard. One was torn up and the stuffing was exposed. As she looked and pondered the why's, she saw a squirrel stuff its cheeks with the stuffing and head for a tree--it was padding its pad! emoticon

As it turned out there was to be very little sleep this night or should I say morning. My mother passed away at 1:30 AM. She is at peace and no longer in pain.

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Hi all,

Just a quick fly by because I am going to bed. I have been going on about 4 hours sleep a night and I have a chance to get 6 to 7 tonight and I am taking it.

My mother is in her end days. she can no longer swallow her medicine or suck on a straw so there in no more food or liquid intake so all her normal medicine has been stopped. She now only gets morphine and an anti anxiety drug they are a liquid dispense under the tongue.
The goal is to keep her comfortable in these end days.

Any way that is my mother update thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

Hi everyone!

Well our friends from Challis stopped by for a surprise visit. They were sick of all the snow and cold. That was fun! I never did get a chance to watch the Ted talk but I will try again tomorrow morning. :)

I did get to the gym and made it for 20 minutes on the elliptical though, yay! Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!

Good evening Boise!!!

Barb, I am sure you will find something to do this weekend! :)

Kelli, I sure hope you got the job you wanted, fingers crossed. Do you need any help at the rental? Yes, I am hoping for a quieter year for you.

Kathy, you are in my thoughts.

Kelli, fingers crossed that you got the job AND they hurry up and tell you! I'm with you on hoping that your "new" year is smooth sailing and full of good things.

Kathy, how are you and your mom doing today?

Christine,did you make it outside before it started snowing/raining?

Starting my weekend today and very happy about it. Not sure what my plans are, but I'm sure I'll find something to do. :)

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Good Morning Everyone,

My interview actually went really well. I had a pretty good feeling when I walked out of there. Now I am just playing the waiting game. Ugh.... so not like it was in the old days. :)

My rental house is moving along and I should have everything completed and ready to rent again by next weekend. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I haven't gotten out much, I haven't been doing much of anything. It just seems like one crisis after another right now. I am hoping February comes with much quiet, and nothing to deal with. My birthday is Monday and I am hoping that "my" new year is going to be much better.

Gotta run, have a great day everyone!

I like free stuff too! Do you know what the material is that the gloves are made of? If you do, I can keep my eyes open for socks and let you know if I find them.

Christine, great job on the elliptical! I agree with Kathy...hope you can find some exercises that will help your knees.

Kelli, do tell! Fingers crossed that all went well.

I plan to go grocery shopping. How's that for big plans for the weekend? :D And I'm taking DS to the doctor on Friday. He has intermittent pain in his abdomen. With his celiac, I'd like to get anything serious ruled out. Hope the doctor tells him he needs to get up and move more often. I doubt that will happen, but I can hope!

Meetmemonday is sponsored by st als I thought I might as well get the free stuff cause I walk everyday and I figured when the weather get nicer and I am walking outside I can still go once a week to the mall to walk so I can get free stuff. I really like free stuff.

I didn't walk the mall today because I overslept. My mother went to sleep early so I was able to get outside and walk in the fresh air. The gloves I got from MeetMeMonday sign up are nice my hands did not get cold by feet that is another story. I need to find some socks made out of the same material. I have trouble with my extremities in cold weather. I lose feeling in my feet and fingers when they get cold.

Christine have you thought about looking into exercises that strengthen your joints that are giving you problems?

Barb any big plans for you long weekend?

Kelli have you had your interview yet?

Hi Everyone!! How was your day?

I got a 15 minute mile on the elliptical today, but my dumb left knee started hurting so I had to quit.

Barb, so Thursday is your last day of work this week?

Kathy you are in my thoughts and prayers. emoticon

Kathy, I forgot to say thank you for the walking info! That sounds like a great program. You'll have to post pics of all of the stuff you get. I walk by the Kuna Center - maybe I'll see if I can still sign up.

Christine, I totally understand the "plain old tired" issue. So hard to get up and move when you're tired.

Today was about what I expected. Spent the morning reading/deleting e-mail. Afternoon spent catching up on projects. Then it was time to go home. Two more days...

Barb it sounds like you had a really nice last day of vacation! No I didn't walk today, I had one of those days were I was just plain old tired.

Kathy, that fitness walking sounds like a cool way to get fit and get some free stuff! :) Oh and I am glad that you are putting your foot down about what is best for your mom. Those people trying to force feed her are out of their minds... seriously

Kelli, good vibes and mojo coming your way!! Keep us updated on how it goes.

Kathy, I know that my aunts and uncles used hospice when my grandpa was in his last few days. They definitely made things easier on grandpa and my aunts/uncles. I'm glad that you have them for support.

Christine, did you make it outside for a walk today too?

Today was my last day of vacation. I went to the gym, went on a walk, and read my book. Really good last day!!

Kelli good luck on the job interview, Business move slow in December. Sending some positive mojo your way. Can you feel the vibes?

Barb sometimes it is so hard to get moving but like you I always feel better when I do. I actually got outside yesterday for my walk.

Christine sorry about your computer crash, I hate it when my goes down.

Windy if not to bad I can handle, walking in the snow is another story.


I am so thankful for services like hospice. They are really great. They take the time to talk to me and address my concerns. They also back me up with her caregivers who all of a sudden have decided they know what is best. They are trying to force feed my mother, giving her tyanol instead of her pain medicine because they want her more alert. The hospice nurse told them the reason she is so agitated right now and keeping them up all night is because they are not giving her the pain medicine and now they have to catch up to get the pain regulated. She also told them their would be no force feeding. She can still spit as they found out today when they tried to force her to eat.

Hi everyone.

St Al's has a program called "Meet Me Monday" it's free, I like free. They have some prices they give out also

www.MeetMeMonday.org

sign in places are the Boise Towne Square 7:45 AM
Downtown Boise at Bandannas at 5:15PM
and Kuna Visitor center 5:30PM
you just have to walk on monday and sign in. You can walk by yourself or with a group. Today for signing up they gave me a free pair of running gloves.( I think this might be only for those signing up today but not sure)

For me because I walk earlier and finish up about the time people are starting she said that was not a problem just need to sign in when I finish walking.

After I have signed in 8 times I get a t-shirt it does not have to be consecutive.
16 times I get a long sleeve shirt
50 times a running cap
100 times a baseball style shirt.
I think there will be other gifts also
Nothing fabulous except the gloves I got today.

For those that walk in down town Boise they have raffles at the end of their walks.

Hi Everybody,

Just passing through to say hi. I am hoping that by this time next week I will have everything done that I need to get done and be back in full force. It has been a super long few months and I am really ready to get positive mojo flowing.

Kathy - I have done the hospice, with my father in law, so let me know if you have any questions or need anything. It is not an easy decision to make. Take care, and you and your family are in my prayers.

Tomorrow I have an interview for the position that I applied for back in December. Good luck wishes and prayers are much appreciated.

Have a good Monday everyone!

I agree. We could have two feet of snow. I'm much happier with the weather we have.

I finished the first of the chores I had to do. Now I should go to the gym and/or walk. Having trouble getting off my butt though! LOL!!

Thanks!

It was a little windy today. I walked to the gym, walked on the treadmill for an hour and then walked home. After that, DH had an errand for me, so I got that done. Took the opportunity to run to the library too. I have two more books that "have" to be done by next Saturday. I'm a little less than halfway through one of them, so I think I have a chance of finishing them both.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!

Thanks Christine! Looking forward to trying it!

Kathy, hope all is well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

After taking DS to school and running the errand for DH, I sat and read until noon. Felt good to be so lazy!

Having your feet up on a vacation day is as it should be Barb! I will look for that spare DVD and you can have it :) I usually use her 2 or 3 mile walks. Today I only went a mile with the new one I got.

Kathy, hope you are getting a little bit of rest.

Kathy, I'm sorry that you had to make such a tough decision on your own. And I'm sorry that you're not getting the support that you deserve from your siblings. I can see why you were so upset. I'd be pretty dang! irritated too

Christine, I would try one of those. I like trying different workouts!

Today I got to have lunch at the Kona Grill in the Village and then walk around all of the stores. It was a nice enough day that I didn't freeze. I was with my friend and her almost 3yo granddaughter. After that I got all of my grocery shopping done. Now I get to sit here with my feet up!

Yesterday was not a good day. Except for my morning walk that was the bright spot of my day thanks Barb I really enjoyed your company this morning.

I had to make the decision yesterday a feeding tube for my mother or calling in hospice. She pulls off her oxygen, she pulls out every IV they have put in, she won't leave the soft brace on her wrist, (they put a hard cast on it today) how long would she leave in a feeding tube? I made the decision to contact hospice.

It didn't help when I contacted my siblings to let them know what decision I had to make, the doctor gave me a couple of hours to decide. they didn't get back to me until late in the day and then they wanted to sit down and discuss it but they don't know when they will have time. The turds. Needless to say some are not happy with me because I made the decision with out the discussion. With that said I know the wanting to sit and discuss the decision is coming from my brother's girl friend. She had him call the other's to tell them it needed to be discussed. How do I know this, she could be heard in the back ground telling him what to say. I also knew the text I was getting from my brother were coming from her. I know how he words things plus the fact is text are always very short and what I was getting were books.

Ok Ok I am done venting time to get to the mall and go for a walk to walk away my pissy mood. You would of thought I would of woke up not so ticked as when I went to bed. Time to let it go and move on.

Barb, I think I have two of the "one mile walks" and that way you can just try it sometime when you need just a few more steps. Yes we walked outside today too, it was just too nice and sunny not too! :) Oh and the movie sounds so cute!

Kathy thinking about you and hoping things get better for your mom.

I just did some more sewing today and the walking.

Today has been a much nicer day! After I walked with Kathy at the mall, I came home and walked to the post office. It was a little breezy, but overall nice and sunny. I might try one of your DVD's, Christine. I just have trouble doing a DVD at home...I usually go to the gym or walk outside.

Kathy, I enjoyed walking with you today. I hope your visit with your mom was better today.

Today has been pretty nice. After my walk, I've been sitting on my couch watching Netflix. Currently, watching the movie "Home". So far it's cute.

I know it rained, boy do I know... DH talked me into waiting and going outside for a walk with him when he got back from the indoor range, nope that didn't happen!!! It was poring. But Barb you should try one of her WATP DVD's, I have like 7 of them. After I quit smoking I needed to lose about 20 and I lost it, without dieting, doing her DVD's 5 days a week. Did you want to try one of mine?

Anyway I colored my hair today and got some sewing done.

Kathy, how is your mom doing? I hope she isn't in a lot of pain. Please let me know if you need anything.

Man did I pick a bad time to go to the store! Raining and windy and cold!! But, it did get worse after I got home so it could have been worse. Took DH in for his colonoscopy. Everything is good and he's almost back to normal. Very groggy when he woke up.

Kathy, hope your mom is doing better. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Christine, how did the WATP go? I've never done one of those, but everyone I know who has enjoys them.

Time to go finish my book. Almost done!!!

Kathy, sounds like a lot of running around and updating. I'm sorry that your mom isn't eating. Does the hospital try to help her at too?

I am planning to walk the mall. Let's plan on Wednesday. I can be there at 6:30. That way, there's not too much traffic either direction and I can let DH take care of DS that day. I'll IM you my phone number so you can text or call if your plans change.

Christine, my evening is going fine, thank you. I'm all set for tomorrow and my one day of work this week. Better sign off now so i can get some sleep. Later!!

Kathy, I will keep you and your mom in my prayers. And I pray she starts eating a bit more than she has been in the past few days. You are such a wonderful daughter to take such good care of your mom. I think you have my phone number so if you change your mind or you need anything text me okay? You sound like you are getting worn down. I can also come and just sit and visit too.

Hi Barb, I hope your evening is going well, I an going to watch Downton Abbey tonight. :)

Barb glad you got your daughter home safely. Are you still planning on walking the mall this week, if so let me know when I am sure I can arrange my schedule to fit yours

Christine thanks for the offer

Kelli I once thought I would like to own rental property then I hear the horror stories and decide it is better not to.

Here is how my day goes I get up around 4:30 (it's killing me) have breakfast head for the mall around 5:30 to 6:00 to walk for 2 hours or 6 miles which ever comes first. Then go to the hospital try to feed mother, wait around for the doctor to make rounds and for her physical therapist to come torture her. They give her pain medicine before therapy so by the time I try to feed her lunch which means one bite two if I am lucky she goes to sleep. Then I go home for a shower and lunch and update the famdamily. Relax a bit then back to hospital to feed her dinner or try to. Then I hang around until she finally settles down and falls asleep which usually is after 7:00 She has basically ate nothing since Tuesday morning around 7:00 AM. Then I come home and find something to scarf down, spark for a bit, oh yeah and update the famdamily again, then crawl into bed by 10 or 11.
I have completed 2 books and started a third.

Which I better go to finishing sparking and to my family email update

The rain cleared the rest of our snow off the drive. Unfortunately, there are some slick spots on the driveway. And I see that we are in for some more precipitation for the next few days. Hope it's all rain down here and snow in the mountains!

Barb we are all clean here too! No snow in the front or on the walks. Wow, that must have scared the tar out of your DH! I am sure he won't want you two out doing that late at night. Wow I wonder why nobody announced it that they were left on. Glad she is alright and everyone is safe at home now.

I shoveled again this morning and now my driveway and walks are dry. If I hadn't shoveled, there would still be ice and snow on them.

Just got back from the mall. DD was working and apparently left her lights on all day. She called me to come give her a jump. Her dad (my DH) decided he needed to come with me. If he didn't, he would just lay in bed worrying. She's home now and I think it will be awhile before she does that again!

It's late so I will talk to you all later!

Barb, I shoveled a path to the wood and to my little shed, but nothing else! I didn't have a fire though because it really wasn't very cold today.

Kathy, I had company today but I meant to ask you where your mom is? Is she at St rLukes? I could come and help you if you think she wouldn't freak out because she doesn't know me.

Kelli, did I hear right? Did your renter get arrested? Holy cow do you need a work party to help you clean up a big mess? Seems like a lot is going on lately...

Kathy, I'm so sorry about your mom. So hard for both of you. I hope that you can get the help you need.

Christine, I shoveled the walk before I left for work. And it sounds like I'll get to do it again in the morning. Love winter...not.

Kelli, I hope you can get these settled. And I'm with you, so ready for spring!!

Oh no, I am so very sorry Kathy! She isn't going to understand anything that is going on. When my mom had a stroke she kept saying the hospital band on her wrist was a Spanish necklace. And yes she is going to need you because she is going to drive the staff crazy. My mother kept going into other people's rooms and cleaning and straightening things up... and she was fast too!

Sorry I have been MIA, my mother fell Tuesday morning and broke her leg and wrist. She had surgery last night on her leg. Needless to say I will be spending quite a few hours at the hospital. She will have to go to rehab once released from the hospital. With her dementia this could send her in a tail spin. She has to be continuously told she broke her leg and wrist. She just thinks the brace they put on her are causing the pain and she wants to take them off.

Keep on smiling.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post to say hello and wave to everyone! I haven't been keeping up, and I hope to fix that in the next couple of weeks when I get my rental house straightened out. The fun just keeps coming for me!

So ready for Spring. I know that winter just barely started, but I am already so over it.

Have a good night everyone!!

We have new ones too at our gym! :)

I love hiking in Tahoe! We rented a house here one time, long ago, and it was so dusty that it made everyone sick... that was a drag.

We have friends who rent a house out up there and I do know they are clean. They live half in Tahoe in the other house they do not rent out and the other half in San Diego.
