I hope your brother has good results from his test.

Elaine be careful and safe on the long drive home. Sounds like you are a driving maniac.

Hope everyone has a great day.
Just learned today that my moms heart is weak. She is having an angiogram on the 27th. About 11 or 12 years ago she had a quadruple bypass and they told her then it would probably block up again in 5 years. She is having so many problems with her legs and circulation. Her legs hurt so much that she sometimes cries.

Janice, I don't gamble. I worked too hard for my money.

We have the Grand Banquet tonight and will be heading home in the morning. It is a 11 hour and 46 minute drive. We will get in really late to Louisville and then I will drive to Indianapolis on Friday morning. Since my son will not be home until later Sunday night, I might stay the night and head home on Saturday. The following weekend is Layknn's birthday, so I will stay down in Indianapolis for the weekend then.

Pam that's a good idea .... walking up & down the ramp would be a great exercise.

Janice enjoy your time with Sis when it happens.

Janice (Id) have a safe trip home.

Not a lot happening here today. My brother is coming down for the day to see his specialist & get his results back then I might get to do some shopping done. Or I might wait until tomorrow.

have a great day everyone emoticon

Janice sorry that your visit was postponed.
Hubby is doing all right. Just waiting to see the doctor.
I walked 100 rounds of the ramp yesterday....3.6 miles and my hips are really sore today. Going to do another kind of exercise today instead and take a walking break.

Hope you are all doing great too. I put a topic of hidden sugar in pams place. Hope you read it. Some may surprise you.

good morning everyone.

Janice it will be the end of term school holidays. I don't need to buy a great deal at the moment but I do need to think what to feed them. also emoticon on your progress. that is truly wonderful news

Dutch, emoticon I really feel for you about your Mum. Mine can be so contrary too & there is NO way I could care for her here either. My sister used to say oh she can come & live with me but as her 'stupidness' increased so did the nastiness & now my sister can't bear the thought of living her. It is sad. We believe that she is in very early stages of Alzheimer's but not yet diagnosed.

As to the your Mum being 'not quite right' after the fall .... it is well documented that general anesthetics do increase the effects of dementia permanently.

I hope you all have a fantastic day and emoticon all round

cheers from Sharyn,

Cooler today in the 90's, I took an extra long walk today. I am going to walk over an hour three times a week. I was only doing that once a week on Sunday, but now I am going to walk Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. I am walking around the State Capitol Park.

I am sorry some of you are putting weight on, it is hard to stay on track every day. emoticon emoticon

Good Morning All,
I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

Mom is back in the hospital. She has been there a few days. Her feeding tube clogged so they had to replace it. She gets all weird with the anesthesia for a few days. This time she took off her neck brace and refused to put it back on. She was refusing any help from the nurses and trying to pull out her feeding tube. She told me and my sister she was not going back to the nursing rehab center. She hated everyone. It had gotten to the point the Dr's told my nephew that he needed to sign the papers to put her in a Long Term SNF to live out the rest of her life as she wanted to. He would not sign them. He told the Dr's to give her another day or two. Like we kept trying to tell everyone in a few days things will change. As of yesterday she put her brace back on and she told the Dr's on her own she would go back to The Rehab Center. My nephew has an appointment for a conference call tomorrow with all her Dr's to discuss her long term care. They said that the fall has made her dementia worse. I know she will never be able to go home unless she has 24 hour care. Something no one in our family can afford. I just hope that by time she goes through rehab she realizes this and does not fight to be put where she will best be taken care of. She ask me if I would go down there and take care of her. I told her I could not because of my work and helping to take care of Addison once Cristina goes back to work. She was not happy with me. She told my sisters she was moving back up here. That will never happen because I cannot care for her the way she needs to be cared for now and still take care of me and live my life.

Enough rambling.
Wishing everyone a blessed day.

good morning everyone. it's looks like a beautiful day here ...... a good day for grave & headstone hunting for the family tree.

have to start planning the pantry for the boys holidays visit in a week & 1/2.

I hope you are all feeling comfy with your weather. I enjoy early Spring but once the heats starts to creep in I settle into my annual hibernation.

Having fun in Atlantic City.


There is no scientific evidence that the full moon has any effect on people. I say that is a crock. Ask any firefighter, police or hospital personal. When I worked at the Post Office, we would get so many crank calls or nutty calls during a full moon.

Sheryl did you read the pros and cons of if the moon affects us In Pams place. I wanted to put both sides of the talk.

It is in the 60w today but got down to 40 last night, I am glad I am not a gardener,

I am making tilapia for me and bbq chicken for hubby. I love tilapia with onions and lemon juice with just a little garlic powder,

I walked hubbys wheel chair ramp for 2 days straight. I walk for one hour and it is 90 steps for a round trip so 4500 steps. Just 500 more and it will be 2 miles. Gonna go for it tomorrow,

wow I miss 1 day and there are heaps of posts to read through emoticon

Kathryn congrats on your scale going down. emoticon emoticon

good morning everyone emoticon we have a mild morning to start our day here but very overcast. hopefully we will get some rain out of all the cloud cover.

I had a bad sleep last night because I ate my evening meal later than I need to.

On Friday night I was looking after my sisters fur babies while she & hubby went to Melbourne for the night. Then they stayed here for Saturday night so I ate far more than I should have.

I am feeling like a blimp today but also feeling like I could do some good exercise. I have hit a brick wall .... no better still, my obesity has hit me full in the face. Today is the day!!!

Back on track & NO shirking AND NO EXCUSES!!! my jeans are getting too tight so I have no choice

It is unreasonable to say the moon does not affect us when it controls the tides, our bodies are 90% water, how can it not affect us. Ask any policeman or emergency room doctor.

Nan, enjoy your visit with your son. I haven't seen mine in a while, but phone conversations are great!

Pam, this is a good idea for a thread, like it!

Re full moon, there is a theory that the full moon affects dementia patients , I can't say I have noticed that with my dh. But someone on the carers team is sure it affects her patient .

Today I have been making space in our small spare room. Tomorrow our eldest son is coming to stay on a short visit,. We have to squeeze a fold up bed in there plus room to move around tomorrow ,
It's my retreat room where I go to chill out but shall give it up for a few days , Irene

Yes, the moon effects us in so many ways. We should all make note of any changes and post for the next full moon.

Pam you can have this heat it was 103 yesterday and will be the same today. My little home office get so warm and it is the only place I can use the computer. I try to get all my Spark stuff done in the morning. But I also do my shopping and walking at this time too so some days I am on the computer in the afternoon when I set in here and sweat.

emoticon The scale went down, the scale went down emoticon I dropped the weight I put on most recently and changed my ticker to show where I was and where I am going. I am eating healthy again and staying in my self made allotment of 1200 calories. I feel happier, I guess I am in the Honeymoon stage of weight loss again. I have not been feeling to happy lately. Even though I have been doing my walks I have not been eating to well. For the last 13 days I have been eating healthier and tracking my intake, and the weight is coming off.

Janice hope the rain does clear up for your dancing night. It rained here yesterday and last night and still a little dreary here. It is in the 40s again,

Sheryl sounds like a movie....the mysterious connection of the moon. I too believe there is a connection of the full moon to many things but never realized it might affect my sleep. I sleep off and on every night though so would not recognize it. I know there are more happenings at a full moon too. In the nursing home when I was there, the people would act crazy, some of therm. The nurses all new it was a full moon at that time.

Elaine have fun while you are there. Hope the weather is nice.

Kathryn, I can tell you that I know when a full moon is without looking at the calendar, I have a problem getting or staying asleep for as long as 5 days before during and after a full moon. I think it has something do do with the gravitational pull of the water in our bodies.

Kathryn, I'll take some of that heat. It has been in the 40s and 50s the last couple of days. We had to turn on the heater last night. Got down to 40.

Both hubby and I did not sleep last night. I even got up and ate a peach thought I was maybe hungry. In the middle of the night I even took one one sleeping pill but it did not work. We think it might have been a full moon or some thing that kept us up. It is in the 90's today and I am running the AC. It is a wall unit and doesn't cool off my office. I keep taking breaks and running to the bed room where it is the coolest, hubby is in there too.

good morning everyone. I'm feeling much better today after a great sleep last night. I ended up with my sisters pooches for the night last night as she need to make an unexpected overnight visit to Melbourne & couldn't take them with her.

I would love to walk along an ocean beach. We have plenty of 'beach' like lake shorelines but the ocean beach is so special. emoticon

Janice (Fl) I hope you were able to nap during the day. I expected to be awake half the night last night too but I slept right through.

Hopefully the visit with your Oncologist went well Janice.

Have a great day everyone. I feel good at the moment but not bouncing off the walls so will be a gentle day for me

cheers from Sharyn,

Sharyn take it easy. You sound like you had a hard day. I think he will love his bedroom when he gets used to it. Probably before that he will hear all kinds of wierd noises as we all do in a new room.

good morning everyone. My DD and her family are in their new home. I didn't stay last night because their wasn't a lot of spare floor space due to all the boxes. emoticon

I am so extremely tired today & have aching muscles from top to toe. The youngest boy was extremely unsettled last night & cried himself to sleep. He is used to sharing a room but now has his own room but I'm sure he'll settle in quickly once he realizes he can lock his big brothers out of his room.

Today I'll be taking it easy &popping a few pain killers.

Have a great day everyone emoticon

Irene, I love comedy but hate slapstick too. My grandkids love that movie, Dumb and Dumber but I just thought it dumb lol. It did have its moments but most of it was just stupid....but to each his own.
Janice you can't get rid of me that easy lol. Thanks for keeping a spot for me and after all of this is over, may take you up on that offer.
Sheryl, I take a nap sometimes in the afternoon too. It used to be a ritual...3...and I was tired but now it is just occasionally. Hope you are healing and don't need surgery.

It is chilly this morning and supposed to be a high of 62. The almanac says another bad winter. I really hope not. Hubby will probably be in the nursing home for a lot of it.
After he has the surgery...depends on how fast he heals and how his therapy goes as to how long he will have to be there. He says he is going to go at therapy with a running leap so he can get home. It is nice having him home again.
Well it is almost time for thinking about lunch. Just don't know what it will be.

No actual news, no change in diet which is awful, I am craving a big salad! Cat scan in two weeks then it will be decided if I am healing on my own or if surgery will be needed.

Have you heard about your cat scan?

On a more cheerful note, I am feeling really good and can accomplish much in the am, afternoons are a time to nap still though.

I do cross stitch but only as gifts or for myself .
British tv comedies were mentioned earlier ,I can't scan back now I have started this. Which tv shows do you like, ? I think we have have a different sense of humour to most other countries, I dislike like slapstick but others love it. Have a good day Irene

Been busy sewing yesterday and more cleaning today. I am working on car seat covers again and now bandana bibs. They are so cute. Trying to make extra money so I do not have to find an out of the home job. I don't know if I can work outside of the home anymore. But I am not ready to get on disability either.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

Hello everyone. It has been raining off and on all day and supposed to be a high of 62 tomorrow. Fall has moved in ahead of its due date and I am so afraid this winter is going to be really bad again.

Hubby has to go to two doctors for a check up now before they will schedule the surgery. Why didn't they tell us that was what was holding things up? He can't get in until the 29th which means Oct. surgery and in the nursing home over the holidays like last year. It will be the second year in a row that he was in the nursing home for Christmas.

If the weather gets too nasty this winter I will be lucky to visit him at all. I can't shovel the snow because of my back. I did some last winter and had a lot of pain and couldn't shovel but a 4rth of the driveway. It is a little over 2 cars wide and about 3 long and now we have the ramp taking up about half of the width and most of the length. I think it is going to collect under the ramp and make a large pile around it.

Janice happy birthday to hubby.

Kathryn glad to hear your hubby is getting stronger. I am afraid I am way behind on what is going on with everyone.

I hope you all have a great week and for those who are sick...hope you feel better.

Went to Wildwood New Jersey today and walked the boardwalk for a bit. Saw the ocean, but it was really breezy and whitecaps on the waves. Back in Cape May and going to walk some of the beach here.

good morning everyone. Not much happened yesterday. Went out to the local cemetery trust & found more info on where some ancestors were planted. I had planned on doing a cemetery walk but the wind & rain put a stop to that. So I spent the day watching some old British TV series. They are so funny.

Today is clean-up day before leaving for Melbourne later this afternoon. MY DD moves house tomorrow and the truck is due at their housing by 8am. going to be a looooong hard day tomorrow.

cheers from Sharyn,

Just stopping by to say Hi.

Been a lazy day. I have not done much and I should have. I think it is Mother Nature. I have not had a period in over 4 months. I have not had any symptoms of menopause so I think it is just my abnormal cycles. It always fatigues me when I go that long without any cycle.

Hope everyone has a good week.

how cool Sheryl, taking your cats for rides.

Kathryn great to hear your hubby is regaining his strength. It can be hard feeling like you can do heaps but when you try, no energy. Good on him for his persistence.

It's raining here today so I wont be walking till later. My sister has got into do her family tree & in turn has rekindled my work. I did heaps a few years ago but due to lack of available info shelved it. BUT in the last 10 years the availability info online has improved & increased; so I am working on it more.

Later this morning I am heading out to our local cemetery trust with some names & dates in the hope that they can fill a few gaps for us.

have a wonderful week everyone. May you see success in all you do no matter how minute it might be emoticon

cheers from Sharyn,

Irene, we have cats and have had since our children were grown. They are so easy to care for and so loving. Our cats are never allowed outside though, and all have lived to a minimum of 18 years. Our vet said this is the healthiest lifestyle.
They do not miss being out side as they never have been and do not even try to go out. We have taken them in the truck and motor home since we have had them and they love to ride.

I am late posting today as I spent the day with the girls shopping. We went to one shop that had dogs up for adoption and I almost came away with one. My friend that has the car says she will drive hubby and me to the animal shelter to get one soon. With all the walking I do a dog would not have a chance getting fat.

Dutch, Good luck to your mom also ....hoping that the nursing home will be a good move for her.

I made my hubby's cake.......came out looking delish!!! We will have a piece tonight. This might just be my dinner for the night....I know not healthy but we had a later lunch.

Tomorrow morning will be going for my CT Scan.

Good Afternoon All,
Hope everyone had a good weekend.

I finally had a productive weekend. I cleaned the house and did some yard work yesterday and today. It is the first time I have done it and enjoyed it in a while now. I am finally getting back to my life. Getting past all the events over the past 6 weeks or so.

Mom is still in the hospital. They placed a feeding tube in her stomach to see if they can help her with her swallowing. She was out of it again yesterday. I am not sure when they want to move her to the Nursing Home. I am sure she will do better there. She always does.

Wishing everyone a Great Week.

good morning team. not much happening here today as we are pretty much back to normal now we it's just me & the furbies. Today after I have walked the furbies, I head out to to visit my Dr to get a couple of repeat prescriptions. Then I need to start cleaning out my car so I can take it to Melbourne on Wednesday, My DD & family have their big move on Thursday into their new home. She spent the weekend painting the walls of the boys bedrooms and they look pretty good from what I could see in the photos she posted.

Janice enjoy making hubby his cake.

Sheryl it's great you lost 11 pounds but what a way to lose it emoticon Glad you're feeling better.

Janice (Id) must be enjoying herself as we haven't heard from her for a day or 2.

Have a fantastic day everyone & may you always feel the warm of sunshine on your face and everything go right for you
