not really. today is very hot and it will stay hot again all night. skin irritable.

hope they're right.

physio - had trouble releasing tension in neck and shoulders.

sorry you're so rushed. I sometimes drift off after I've done meditation.

Thank you.

I'm sorry you're having problems and having to work so late. I'm preparing a u3a presentation but the computer is playing up and everything is taking longer than it should. Decided to write to you now so I won't forget later.

Hot spell, day and night. Not good.

opened my computer again to write to you. i better not get distracted by anything.
thanks. i've recovered. need a way to avoid repeat.
understand about your neighbor.
walk did you more good than meeting.
had watermelon and small chocolate by nbr.

worked much too late. had miscommunication emails back and forth with a coworker. i type too tersely. he was misunderstanding me. didn't make much progress on my other work, either. a little pressured now. library books due, too.

I'm so sorry you had such a terrible time. It must have been a real struggle. It is hard to find a reliable company. I was let down a couple of times lately but it was minor compared with what happened to you.

neighbour is one who was in hospital recently. has already had one fall since she returned.

should have gone to meeting but the chairs are uncomfortable so I went for a short walk instead.

I hope you achieve a lot but don't forget some me time.

enjoy the pyrex. always good accomplishment to give away stuff to charity.
don't let chatty nbr stop you from walking. suggest she join you.
was impossible for me to walk. couldn't get a car. took me 2 hrs. to get home instead of half an hour. roundabout buses. i must have a reliable car service at this point. gotta figure this out. luckily i was dressed warm, but i'm not sure i can walk in boots.
i have lotsa work for the weekend . enjoy yours.

disappointing.

yes, thanks.

cleaner came. I'd bought a set of Pyrex containers so we cleared out a cupboard to make space for them and she took a lot of the stuff i wasn't using to the charity shop.

had to wait in for delivery, then chatty neighbour 'phoned so no walking.

snow could make it difficult to walk.

so have i.

good. hopefully it will clear up before you need to think of going to a surgeon. is it very difficult for you to get to city and do you know surgeon there is better than local?

so does mine.

driver came too late to get me to u3a in time so told him i no longer wanted him. agency will follow it up and will not charge for that booking and the one to bring me home.

very tired after bad night and too hot to walk.

thanks. i slept late today. hope i can sleep tonight 'cuz i must get up early tomorrow.

got a slot, thanks.my dentist says i don't need to worry. he says this screening thing is unreliable. if i still have it in a month or two, i should go to an oral surgeon. (choice between local who doesn't take insurance and one in city who does0

my dentist puts a pillow under my neck. my neck hurts from all the time i spent on my computer this week.

walked today (nice out) and underate (so far)

he did but couldn't do thorough check up at same time as clean up.

one good thing about working at night is that it's usually quieter. I hope work will lessens as it's not too good to miss out on sleep for too long.

Hope you get a slot and are told it has nothing to to with cancer.

Physio today. Easier now for treatment on legs but hard to fix neck. Apparently, a lot of people have problems because of position in dentist's chair.

i never get all my tasks done either.

he had to clean all the plaque off my teeth and deal with gums. necessary to wait a couple of weeks for mouth to heal before he could work on it again.

hope you're managing to get some rest.

i forgot to write on thursday. i'm sorry!! very busy, but that's not an excuse. last week i never took out a schedule on which i cross out what i need to do each day. i never get to everything, but last week i never took out the schedule!
sorry you're not sleeping well, in pain, not able to walk or go to class. :( :( :(

why do you need to go back to dentist. couldn't he decide while you ere there?
winter has arrived here. cold and bare trees.

agreed.

Didn't sleep much but managed to get out at 8.15 for u3a.

I thought I would have problems with dentist today. Gave teeth a thorough clean but I have to go back in two weeks for him to decide if I need a couple of old fillings replaced. Not what I wanted to hear but it could have been worse.

Thunderstorm and heavy rain later so not possible to walk even if I could have dragged myself out.

We're both at the time of the year when weather fluctuates a lot.

rained alot here, too. walked very briefly.

i don't feel tongue, so, unfortunately (?) it doesn't interfere with eating. want to eat less by choice, not by illness.

hope your dentist is pleased.

posted three times between your messages but not yesterday 'cos not feeling well.

torrential rain today so no walking but did eye exercises and meditation. read an article which said good food choices, exercise and sleep are the most important things as you get older. could have gone to sausage sizzle today but far too wet out.

good doc is nearer but bad about tongue. ladybird want to know if it's a problem when you eat. i go to dentist tomorrow.

forgot about you last night. sorry. worked till 6 AM. good thing we changed the clock. worked again today.enjoyed company saturday. ate too many nuts. i'm getting back into that and not drinking enough. don't take my psyllium (fiber) either! so easy to get distracted.
have something on my tongue. 2.5 weeks ago dentist said to watch it for 2 weeks. ent doc today said to watch it another month. my temperature is a little raised.walked to doc and back (he moved near me) and with partner at night. i prefer by day, but at least she takes me away from my computer.

walking - good for you. our weather bad - gale force winds, then thunderstorm, then too hot to walk and will remain hot overnight.

enjoy good weather.

too hot for comfort today and will be hot overnight.

cleaner came - needs to email traffic authority to obtain photo of where she parked.

met friends - I was the only one who didn't eat any of the chocolate cake.

partial success with bank today. managed to exchange one old account for a newer one with higher interest. Have more to do tomorrow.

sorry you lost your lunch break - hope it was worth it.

u3a this morning and eye specialist this afternoon. said i don't have to go back for a year.

when we came out driver had a parking fine notice for $161on her windscreen even though we had both checked very carefully to make sure there were no parking signs where she left the car. She phoned the traffic authority to contest it but was told the information won't be in the system until lunchtime tomorrow. She is also my cleaner so will call from my home tomorrow.

Nearly another month gone.

yes, flat foot, but that's the least of the problem.

glad your class was good. sorry stuck waiting. enjoy what you got.

:( maintenance mean those____________computers

uneventful full day. our tech guy helped me but it took my lunch break.

looked at link but don't think I'm much wiser. Have you been diagnosed as having a flat foot. I thought that was generally treated with orthotics.

yesterday's visitor is a walker but far too fast for me.

park would have been lovely.

u3a - good class.

p.m. had to wait in for delivery which eventually came but late.

tried to sort out something with bank but couldn't because of maintenance.

train your visitors to walk.

glad it's better.

my walking partners like to talk. part of the price i pay is listening.

today my newest partner drove us to the park. nice.
now my local young partner wants to walk a little. i prefer daylight, but i'll take what i can get.

doesn't seem as if you would be motivated enough to go regularly.

quite possibly.

will look at link tomorrow. too late now.

physio - was able to treat calves as infection has gone down.

beautiful weather but visitor arrived as I was about to walk. don't see him very often. nice guy but talker.

i do have some problem with chlorine, but the bigger problem is getting there and back. undressed, showered, dried, redressed, etc. i remember in high school (i went only once) and college i was the last one ready. i went to the net class with dripping hair.

wonder if some of your current problems were caused by the accident??

glad you enjoyed the walk and proud you made the effort.

another link about my foot. too technical for me, or i don't like what i read.

spent day housekeeping. so much... sat less, but didn't get out either. when i really look i realize how little my cleaner does. plus some stuff that i need to do occasionally.
my keyboard isn't do 'x' and 'c' well.xxxxxxxxx cccccccccc clearing it :)

sorry it was boring but ...!!!

swimming is possible if you don't have any problems with chlorine or if you live by the sea. I swam before work [enclosed pool] for over a year at one time as it was recommended by doc following a car accident.

beautiful day so enjoyed being outdoors even if walking not easy.

the visit was pleasant but somewhat boring. didn't overeat till they left!!!

today had a very small cup of fruit by nbr. walked very little. raining. must develop some exercise program. last night's guest (and a few others) suggest swimming. i walked fast for one block yesterday (which i haven't done in a while) and i was far too out of breath.

sorry you couldn't sleep. glad you walked.
i walked one way. too late to walk home. long but not bad day. problem resolved, i hope.
ate too much (two suppers? but neither very big.).

guests tomorrow night, but no temptations unless i make something extra.

people coming next week which will be temptaation. hope turtle does her job. i haven't weighed myself in far too long. usually not a good situation.

happy weekend.

glad you had a good day.

i walked too little but did stuff in the house. nobody else sees dirt and i accumulate paper (both printed and my own) too easily. cleaned and tossed. the cleaner came for only one hour instead of the usual 2.

It would have disrupted the class again if I had returned.

So do I! Well at least that's a big step forward.

A good day. u3a this morning, then met friends for coffee. Weather was pleasant so walked.

I appreciate that.

Spark just ate my message.

I'm sure it's the latter!!!

We have two types of persimmon: one is astringent unless very ripe, the other sweet. They vary from pale to deep orange and look like a slightly flattened tomato.

driver arrived 30 minutes too early to pick me up from u3a so I had to miss the end of the class. Agency apologetic but not their fault because they had told him the correct time.

everyone really wants to walk or i'm such pleasant company :) we worked together about 15 yrs. ago and just started walking a few times. she was too tired, so i ran errands for short walk.

don't know what kind of persimmons you have. we have short round ones that can be eaten hard and tall pointy ones that must be soft, almost rotten. i got 4 soft ones at agood price. problem is i just ate 3 of them. real food and hi in potassium for my blood pressure, but....

I think you said Friday or Monday and I got mixed up. That's the trouble with being on different days most of the time.

Ankles swollen today so no walk. Will try to do some stretching later.

Would the implementation affect any co-workers adversely or is it just a case of "how"?

Must do some homework for Tuesday class.

sorry your walk was rained out.

I do and I sympathise.

it was good to talk but she's far from well. not even allowed to walk indoors with walker unless someone is with her and unable to stand for long. husband exhausted.

have dental appointment next month and am not looking forward to it.

you and turtle did very well. we're proud of you.

good luck with work problem. Do any of the others have any helpful ideas?

you too.

glad it was just fatigue.

they are building by me and they start banging at 7AM. you know how i like that.

at least you got a walk out of it, but please try to rest up.

hope you enjoyed chat with sister and she had something good to report.

glad about your blood tests and improvement. external moisturizer is your best option. my doc recommended it, too. but... right now i'll be glad if i take care of my gums. had one 7 mm pocket into which she put tetracycline. supposed to remember not to chew hard food on that side for 10 days. not good at this.

turtle did well today. i walked home from work and then walked to wedding.was offered a ride home as the main dish was being served and i took the ride. i refused the soup. the first course was delicious tilapia coated with crispy onions (like onion rings) and some salad. not a great dish, but at least it's all i had at the dinner.

everybody agrees on solution to work problem. crazy situation. not sure how i will implement it but i'll have to figure it out. may involve 13 people.

rest up and enjoy the weekend.

happy weekend.

Glad about dentist.

yesterday - neighour has lots of old trees and trucks, etc. were parked outside my door before 8 a.m. When I returned from u3a they were using a mulcher right outside my place and, even after stuffing my ears with cotton wool, the noise was unbearble so I wandered off to someone's place to escape and drink coffee. It was further than I usually go and I was exhausted by the time I eventually go home. At least I walked. I had things which I had promised to do so by the time I got to bed it was 1 a.m. Thought about you in bed but too tired to get up and turn on computer.

Today cleaner has been and I have been to doc. I'm waiting for a tradesman now and have arranged to 'phone sister later. As this is the first time I will speak to her since she went into hospital it's likely to be a long call. At the moment I'm so tired I am half asleep.

Blood tests - thyroid, Vit C & D OK, kidneys very slight improvement. Doc not happy about lack of sleep but doesn't want me to take sleeping tabs. would prefer pain killers when necessary. tests unable to determine cause of skin irritation. antibiotics have cured infection, to use cortisone cream if it flares up again. says to keep slathering on moisturiser because of extremely dry skin [fluid restriction]. see him again in december.

physio came so muscles not so constricted. intended to go to meeting but couldn't face the thought of sitting through it.

you did well. It's easy not to add extra salt but much harder not to eat food containing it.

I am sure you are not an inefficient. person. However, you have been through a lot of stress lately and, if you did make any mistakes, it would be understandable.

me too.

:( hope you're doing better now.

listened to turtle today. ate chicken veggies and melon. but it was salty and my pressure is up. turtle better start monitoring my salt more carefully. walked twice instead of bus, too.

two things i heard today made me feel very inefficient.

made me chuckle:

Friday -

true.

our weather is quite pleasant at the moment but i don't know how long it will stay that way.

bookclub - a lot people away on holiday.

went to visit neighbour who returned from hospital/rehab recently. is much better but nervous about slopes even with the walker. I was bitten by mosquitoes.

happy to "hear" from you when you can post.

Enjoy your weekend too.

same gremlins that sew up the clothes in our closet to make them get tight.

another looong, but not overly challenging day. walked only one way. came home after dark in the rain.

has it rained almost every day for months???

i'll probably be writing on Monday rather than Friday again (maybe).

enjoy the weekend.

sorry you didn't sleep well. Can you listen to a tape of meditation or soothing music and do you turn off laptop, phone,etc., at least 1/2 hour before bed? I'm trying to eat my main meal earlier and I think it helps a bit.

thanks.

good you walked but bad your doc is retiring.

shopping centre. i'm sure the night before i go little gremlins stretch the aisles to make them longer.

i considered depression.

no, couldn't fall asleep. had to sleep late. what will be tonight.

sorry sister isn't doing well.

i never stay asleep. most of the time i go back to sleep. sometimes after a freecell break and/or cheese and banana. hope it improves.

i like my gynecologist. one of few docs i do. he's retiring in 4 weeks. i walked home from his office.

must go get some more work done.

Do you think she might be bordering on depression?

you've obvious;y had a very busy day. I hope you are able to clear your mind and sleep well.

sister is home but far from well. family has arranged for carer to call in four times a day and has set up emergency call system.

a little better thanks but can't seem to stay asleep the whole night. Unlike many people who snack when they can't sleep, I have sneaky sips of water.

sorry about all three.

not breathless. not her heart. suspect her adrenals. she lost her mother a few months ago (after a hard time with her) and she hasn't recovered yet. it's not grief. not sure what it is. no interest in cooking or eating.

longest day ever. with no breaks. bus going. car coming. not much walking or even standing. not much typing. lots of talking and some paperwork. some bad news. one surprise that turned out ok, but made me nervous for several hours. i'm tired but revved. lots to think about and switch between. hope i can calm down and sleep.

still need to decide about foot.

hope you are sleeping better.

really warm today wore short sleeves outdoors. legs painful but walked. finding it hard not to drink too much.

s/he's cute, thank you. had one like that when I was a child.

sorry about your cold and hope it passes quickly. that's the disadvantage of being with other people. those i met for coffee yesterday were OK and didn't meet anyone today.

you are doing well with walking. lovely weather here so walked early.

my cleaner is inclined to talk too much but is always happy about doing specific tasks if i ask. would not like to have to manage without her.

visit to neighbour good but worried about her. she wants to be independent, which i understand, but has nearly fallen a couple of times since she came home despite the walker.

finished my course of antibiotics today. hope the benefits last.

You too.

oops. just forgot to post. i'm sorry. actually, i planned to tell you that i walked locally with park partner. she didn't have time to go anywhere, but it was too nice to skip. didn' rain till night.

good your neighbor is back. hope you enjoyed the visit.

last night cleaner came and left late. when i look, i'm quite displeased, but i'd rather have her clean poorly than have me clean well. i do a little here and there. she never seems to notice.

good you walked. i walked both ways today. it's been over a month since i was able to do so. cost me a few pounds. good i had umbrella for rain at end. seems like it rains daily for the last few months.

time to start thinking about chronic foot problem again. my digestive tract could use some help, too.

enjoy the weekend.

you can tell her i'm not managing to get to the MC these days. it wouldn't be a bad idea to cycle through the old ones, but i'm not ready to commit.

met friends. refused chocolate balls and biscuits.

warm today - walked.

Jaderose has posted asking how many people are interested in doing challenges. I think she will close the thread altogether if she doesn't get more support. I know you're pushed but could you send her a couple of lines or tell me if you are interested and I will pass it on.

another month and I don't feel I've achieved very much. I always start off with lots of plans but life keeps getting in the way.

felt too achy to walk. disappointing because weather was quite pleasant.

chicken soup should help and it's enjoyable too.

hope you feel better tomorrow and the hard days aren't as bad as you expect

hope your sister does well.

is it waterweight related to your heart ? :(

good you walked. we did, too. enjoyed. ate pretty well, under the circumstances. it's easier to avoid sugar than salt. avoid drinks and desert. i drank water. salt is in the real food. came home exhausted and fell asleep. i'm so out of shape. got woken up twice. hope i can sleep tonight.

it was supposed to be a good chair. i'm currently sitting on a kitchen chair. time will tell....thanks for the encoutragement.

she will still need a lot of care if she does.

my weight is going up and down like crazy. one day it is below my ticker, the next it is above and so on.

walked.

If your chair keeps causing you problems, despite your getting up more frequently, it would be a good idea to invest in a new one.

Enjoy your lunch.

so happy your sister can go home next week. hope she stays well for you.

good. also slept, but too late. hope i can go to sleep tonight cuz gotta get up early tomorrow. we're going to friends for lunch. hope it's nice for walking. plan to take turtle. i've crossed my plateau the wrong way.

hopefully i'm back on my feet. need to remember to get up and stretch. not sure what i'll do about my chair. i suspect it contributed to flare-up.

Beautiful weather. Walked then came home and opened all doors to let fresh air in. Due to change tomorrow.

Met friends. Muffins looked tempting but refused.

Saw doc. Says legs improving - infection - [which is true], to continue cream and antibiotics. Doesn't think skin problem due to dust mites.

There's a new MC challenge.

glad you are no longer shaggy :) wish it wasn't at expense of walk.

you're right about not sharing stretches. truth is i was doing what she said. only one long hold instead of 10 repeats.

coffee more than chocolate.

glad walking is improving. had to miss today as hairdresser had an unexpected cancellation so got cut. she's been away sick for quite a while so I was beginning to look like a shaggy dog.

i know plenty of stretches but would never recommend them to you because what is OK for me might not be for you. you really need professional advice. i need my physio too. he's still away.
should be good weather tomorrow but forecast says will change after that.

nice weather, which made walking almost a pleasure.

met people I know and was tempted into having a hot chocolate. Too many calories and too sweet.

hope we both sleep well

Well done, Gaby.

Very bad night so tired. Nearly didn't walk but ended up going further than yesterday.

At least neighbour offers fruit, which many people don't.

Email from Gabriel inviting me to join new series, paid this time. Not likely!
