Finally, I have my
back! It has a new hard drive, more memory than my brain can hold, and is virus free!
It has been ready to crash for such a long time, but you know how we are--got to get all the juice out of the thang before we consider it
! This is the depressing part of my blog, it really hurt. Have you ever heard "When it
?" That statement is so true! Not only did the
tear up, but everything that I depended on daily to work forever (
right!) decided to tear up or break down at the same
! For example: like the heating and air furnace ( had it for 25 years), the car, the washer, I lost my cell phone
here but the list could go on. I don't know which one is worse being without a
or being without a cell phone! I walked around like a lost
depression just set in big time! I forgot for a minute who answers my
or how to

comes from! This too shall all pass....
Speaking of a lost

in front of little
's! My daughter and grandkids had dropped by the pet store to pick up something and met an older
in the store who was showing the clerk a picture of a beautiful 6 month old (?)
. She was telling him how she could not keep the
any more and was looking for a good family to take care of it. It was a beautiful black Cockapoo (half Cocker Spaniel and half Poodle for those of you that are like me and don't know what this word means). She said that the
was given to her by someone at
time and that they called her and she answers to the name Chi Chi. That is all it took the

up and gave her to me on
Day as my special

! The woods we live around are full of bobcats, snakes, bears so I was really afraid that Chi Chi was dead!
My son always feeds the neighbors
next door, because we could look and count the ribs poking out. He always left the food outside in a dish with some fresh water at night. He noticed the dog was still hungry in the morning so he waited until the
came up in the afternoon when he got home to feed it. He realized something was eating the food he put out. Out of the edge of the woods he saw Chi Chi watching him. He grabbed her and put her in the house. We gave her a bath and cleaned her up! She is finally getting to know us and love us, and we love her!
You know they say a door never shuts for someone without another opening. I believe that! I had to go to my new doctor in January. I really was scared about this because I loved my old one. I had gained weight and he noticed the UTI's that I had experienced within the past year and told me he wanted me to see an Urologist. He made the appointment and I went. She wanted to know what type of exercise I did. I told her that I
. I also told her that for the last 2 months that I had not been doing this, and the UTI's have stopped. She said good, I don't want you back in the water
any more. She feels that there was something in the chemicals that was bringing it on, as they did not use regular chlorine, but some new type of chemical. She asked if there was some type of exercise that I could do besides
. She said do you have a
? I said, yes. She said, "Great!" " Why not
?" " Do you have a local park in your neighborhood?" I said, "Yes, one just opened!" She said, " Well that would be great exercise for when it is nice outside. What about when it
or is cold out?" Yes, I have a

days are over for now! I truly believe that the God I worship is right on time-- all the time! Chi Chi is the answer to my

with me at the park! She is just that, except sometimes she likes to

Went back to my new regular Dr. today after getting the
out of the shop. I stepped on the
weather I had lost any or not! I was that depressed and aggravated. I have decided it is not all about the
any more, but about my health and how I feel in my
and soul! I had lost 3 pounds.
I was armed with ammunition though when going in. I had printed off my nutrient tracker and exercise tracker, printable exercise video from my diabetic challenge, email notice where I had won 2 gift certificates for the SP store and The Abbot Store (Glucerna), and put them in a loose leaf binder which I entitled" My Journal". I also put in the note columns on these trackers my blood glucose readings several times a day, how I felt, and what was going on this day. This helped me remember why I ate, felt, and exercised this way. My recent A1C was also available. This doctors mouth gaped open. How did you do this. I had told him about how
the last time I was there! I guess showing some people is better than words and opens eyes. He said, "Is this all free?" He took it in his lap and looked for a long time. Then he looked at me and said, "
for showing me this April. I know everyone is not as computer savvy as you, but some are." I told him it was not that hard and everyone helped everybody on this site. "I will be sending others to this website" he said. Please keep doing what you are doing and I will see you and your journal in three months.
God is good and
What a Blessed day!
