Just me. Wow, your weather is stranger than even ours. At present its 93* in our house. Something happened to our ac. When it turns on it sounds like an old car backfiring....... I convinced my wife the week we moved in to purchase a home warranty for appliances ( including ac). Do have to pay $100.00 up front for service. Tech just told me the parts they need are going to have to be ordered. Hopefully part will be in Monday or Tuesday of next week. Its going to to be a hot weekend.

It was in the 90s and now it is in the 60s. At might ti has been in the 40s down from the 70s and at the weekend it is supposed to go back to the 90s.
My granddaughter's promotion was yesterday. My son forgot how to put up my scooter and we thought it had no charge. So he brought me home. I was glad. I thought it was to be an hour. It lasted over 2 hours.
My oxygen and my kidney function are better everyday.
My older grandchildren leave on their DC trip tomorrow.
I sent my email to your private message. Write me back so we know everyone is in touch before the site closes down.

We’re very excited that we can open up our website and app for this business, keeping it free to all individuals and organizations in the United States to keep helping many people.

I went back and pulled these lines out of the article. Am I reading too much into it . I hope it will continue to remain free....this site and you all are my life line. I wouldn't be able to use a pay site.

I just looked at myfitnesspal. Its also a charge site with only one free month trial.

Hi everyone! Doing ok after surgery. My upper arms are wrapped like a mummy. I have had more pain from upper arm workouts with my trainer. It is really more discomfort. A friend is keeping me in soups and brotha.
I am stunned Sparkpeople is closing down. I will be lost without it.

Giving. Wishing you the best with the surgery. Please let us know again when your up to it.

Just me. I requested to sit in but was turned down . The Father of the church said there is no reason for it. That and since the beginning of the virus, noone, including parents, were allowed inside the bldg.

IDavid. - would ask to sit in for a day. Watch how he interacts with his teacher and the other kids. When I was a teacher I loved the "problem" boys. My son was ADHD and had taught me how to deal with many of their issues. When one of them was suspended that meant more positive attention. Sometimes I almost had to make it up. The second I caught them doing something correct I would call out their name and say I like the way whoever open their book to the correct page, or is listening to what I say anything to make them feel more successful. At the end of the day I would call home to tell the parent what they had done correctly.
The funniest thing was one time when I was teaching summer school for students that were behind. I I always called every parent the first day to tell them something good their child had done. The secret is that all kids are always good the first day so I had plenty of material to work with. I called this one boy's house and got his father of on the line. I told him what a pleasure it was to have his son in my class. There was dead silence for a minute. Then he said "Are you sure you have the correct number? I am the father of ------ -----. " I said yes and told him the things his son had done correctly that day. There dead silence and then he yelled for his wife "Honey, pick up the phone. You're not going to believe this." I repeated what I had said. I had no real problems for the entire time that kid was in summer school.
My point is that behavior is the responsibility of the teacher not the students when they are little. This sounds as if the entire staff has been poisoned. This could be a toxic work environment. Go and watch if they will let you. If it was a public school they have to. Private school have different regulations at each state. I would also start looking for a better place. Is he old enough for head start? We have an excellent head start program in our town.

just me, sorry to hear all your going through right now. I too hate it when I have to ask for help. And it seems like its been happening more often.
Its been raining alot here past couple weeks. We are 8inches over normal for the year. I've been keeping my potted veggies protected in the laundry room. The sun is out now. I should go put them out and water them.
Im really worried about Logan. He turned 3 last month. He's been getting in trouble for fighting with the kids at daycare. He attends a church based daycare on the same property as the church. They suspended him for 2 days and he returned today. At the door where he goes in they temp the kids. The office Mgr was at the door today. She looked at me rolled her eyes, turned her back, and in an ugly tone told Logan to hurry up and clean his hands with sanitizer. Mgr never acknowledged, or anything that I was there. Just too him, turned her back at me and closed the door even before I could say goodbye to Logan. I'm stressed that they already have written him off. And may not physically abuse him but more mental. I was raised that way. Constantly being told day after day that " I can see even though your not even an adult, that you'll never amount to anything".
We are supposed to grow up and move on. However, inside it eats a away a little more every day that your no good.
62 yes old and those words still feel them eatting away.

This has been a difficult week. I will not drive until my oxygen has stabilized so I have to depend on my kids. My son has been off work on disability. He hurt his knee. He is getting better and plans to go back to work in 2 weeks. In the meantime he is rebuilding his kitchen. So I asked him to do 2 things that should have been quick and easy; get my disabled plate for the car and turn in the paperwork for my new bank account. The plates have required that he go to the DMV every day this week. The bank account took an hour a day for three days. I had to get a new oxygen condenser. My oxygen level has been down anytime I am moving. I went to a new doctor after about 30 years because his nurse didn’t like me. I gave my old travel scooter to a friend. I am exhausted

Start of a new day.
Got up about an hour ago. Made coffee and heated up a Bob ( breakfast on a bun), for my wife for her morning drive to work.
Little man had a busy day at daycare early. Around 1130am. I got a call from his mom. It seems she got a call from the daycare that Logan had been "suspended" from daycare for biting 2 kids. At 3 they get warning. Suspended, then on 3rd incident expelled permanently. So I picked he up by 12 noon, and will have him all day today....
We will see how that goes. Again, if I still worked and not here, either his mom or grandma would have had to call out for work today.
Past all.thay, this starts a new day. Make the most and have a Blessed one.

Good evening from NY!
David - I am getting the loose skin/ hanging fat cut off my arms. It is a plastic surgery procedure unfortunately not covered by insurance, but something I need to have done.
That is so cool that you got back in touch with your buddies. That is one of the nice things about the interne. You can often find people you have lost touch with.
And....were not old - just well seasoned!
Have a great night!
Gigi

Its been a strange day. Reminiscing about the past. I randomly looked up the last army unit I was stationed in while in Germany. It took me to 4 links later to find 3 of the guys I was close friends with. And that the MP Battalion was having a reunion later this year. What makes it so wild, I haven't talked to those guys for years. That, and that on June 30th( my moms birthdate), the day I got back to the United States...41 years ago. WHAT!!!!
Omg!! I feel so incredibly old.
David.

Goodmorning Ladies.
Everyone here is off work today because of holiday.
I didn't get out of bed till 9am. My wife cooked breakfast for everyone. I had 1 scrambled egg. 1 bacon. 1 hand formed sausage patty from a 1 lb chub. My wife bought us a sugar free coffee creamer. Added fake sugar and that to morning coffee. It was not that bad. Had expected it to be a disappointment.
I went to library yesterday and found a couple books that caught my eye.
Worked hard in the yard for a few days. Going to take it a bit easier today. Everything else can wait till tomorrow.
Just me. Glad to hear no major organ damage.
Croquet. I'm going to have to look back on your posts to see more about your arm. I hope that what ever problems, pain, etc will be corrected soon.
Was called in by my Dr for appt. They doubled my cholesterol meds. My numbers are good but its supposed to help with prevention of clog arteries to heart. I was told on last pics taken of my heart they saw arterial scoliosis. On same visit they did blood work to be followed on the 15th with Dr. I've felt real run down over past couple weeks.
"Happy Dr", has changed my meds. They should be sending them in mail soon. I'm ready.
Well, finishing up breakfast. Everyone is in their own bedroom. Wife has gs in ours watching Toy Story. Seems gs really likes Woodie.
Please stay safe. Enjoy the holiday.
David

Corquet - i really did laugh out loud at your story. My daughter is the tech person for her district. She says no matter how many times you ask people about "plugging in" When you get 50% of the time it is a plug in problem. Usually lose connections.

I spoke to my cardiologist. It was all good news. Almost no damage to the heart muscle. It is in good condition, While my kidneys show some decline there is nothing to suggest kidney failure. The decline is in the normal range for someone my age.

Hi everyone! I was without internet for a couple of days. I had to move a desk with the modem and computer stuff to accomodate a bed for a friend who is moving in. I plugged everything into different plugs. Two days later and an $80 service call, I just about died when the tech plugged the cable back into the original plug and I was up and running again. He said there is usually only one per room. I guess live and learn. Have a great day. I am off to the gym.

David it sounds like it was money well spent.
Sometimes I fell a little guilty because my circumstances are so good. I have excellent health care. have a good retirement that allows me to do most of the things I can. I have a great support system. While I have definite health problems, but so far medicine is handling it. There are things I could sit around and feel sorry for myself, but I am so luck in what I do have. I am trying to focus on the good and push the challenges into the background. There is nothing I can do to change them so Let go Let God.

hi. I spent some money today. I went to Lowes and bought 2 tomato plant cages and arranged them in with the plants to strengthen them up. Also bought some good work gloves to protect my hands along with hand pruners. I've been using our cheap kitchen siscors to trim out dead leaves. The siscors were more pulling and tearing. Mow I can get some clean cuts. I finished the clothes, dishes and our bedroom and bath. Going to jump in to a 10 minute shower. Grandma and gs will be home around 530/45. I'm doing quick, not healthy tonight. Making spaghetti. I won't eat seconds, or the garlic bread and a big glass of crushed ice( went thru drive-thru at sonic and got 2 bags of crushed ice), ice water. I have actually been able to enjoy and look forward to the cold water( without kool-aid, etc,). Well, the clock is ticking. Have a good evening.
I'll try to add some pictures on my sp page pictures of how much some of the plants have grown later tonight. emoticon emoticon

goodmorning.
Busy here at home today. Washing clothes, steam cleaned our bedroom floor and bathroom, and just came in from adding 2 40lb bags to the house filter water system.
Ild like ( time permitting), to make a run over to Walmart. I still need to get a couple of tomatoes cages. If I had heavy duty wire cutters I'd used chicken wire and make them myself. I need to go thru drive-thru at bank today too.
The laundry room looks horrible. That's going to rake a couple hrs to clean right. All in due time.
I better get going. Will check in later.

Just me. Thanks for your words. I feel you on your heart. I do know how you feel. In just a bit over 3 yes, I've had 8. Don't ask me how I've survived. Or why me when I know there are someone many others who are soon much better than me that aren't with us today. I try to remember this and take less for granted but continue to fail.

So exercising was not a good idea. I just got out of the hospital. Bad news I had another heart attack. Good news minor damage, no need for stints or surgery. I am back home starting over

Omg David I am SO proud of you. That took real courage. We will see what happens, but no matter what you had the courage to try to change the things you could. Applause

Thanks for not judging.
I sat family down and told them my feelings on everything going on. Told them what I've thought of doing. So now, we will see. Decided to stand up for my self.
Okay with that out of the way, I was able to schedule and take my 1st covin shot. Its only been a couple hrs but so far so good.
Wil get a break this weekend . Family going friday(afternoon), Saturday, coming back Sunday night from her mom and dads. I'll be watching movies at home and doing absolutely nothing.....

Ps. Thanks for not being judgmental. You are the only one I feel safe being able to talk too.

Justme9898- Yeah for you! I went back to the gym today for the first time since May 4th and smashing up my face. I did an hour long leg workout. I kept the weights relatively light but did long reps of 20 to 50. My legs still turned to jelly.
Have a great day tomorrow.

Hi everyone! I spent the morning being poked and probed by doctors for pre-op clearance for my arm surgery. It wasn't fun. They had a hard time finding a vein for blood so I went home like a human pin cushion. Now I have to wait to see if I pass all, the tests.
Justme9898 - That is wonderful you had a good day. May you have them everyday from now on!

David I am so sorry about your continuing problems. What happens when you say no to some of the things that are asked? I know that sometimes saying no can result in more stress not less and sometimes it actually works.Come here and vent. Way the serenity prayer over and over and over. I helps me.

Corquet -I am so happy you are getting the surgery you want. Give yourself time to heal.

Today was my best day yet. Stats are good Doctors appointment tomorrow

Sorry have been a little quieter.
Alot going on here. I called my physic dr. Asked for stronger or different meds. I just can't daily cope here anymore. The family still takes me being here for granted. If its dirty, needs washed, etc Davids here he should be doing it. We all have paying jobs.
My wife continues to go behind my back. Ex. She gets calls all the time at dinner and in the evenings. Phone rings and she either goes outside or goes and locks herself in the bathroom. When someone asks . Oh, its nothing.
I'm hanging by a thread.

Justme9898 - Thanks for the tip about antibody ointment. I dab on the Neoporan all day long. I will keep doing it.
Wow! That is so cool you used to train horses!
That is also fab all your stats are good. Yeah!
Tomorrow, I get a pre-op exam for June 5th when I get the loose skin removed from my arms. I also see my thyroid Dr. It will be nice to see her in person. Last year it was a virtual visit,. So, there will be lot of poking and probing tomorrow. I just hope I pass everything.

Corquet - glad to hear your sale was such a success. II used to train horses. I have scars all of my body. The one major piece of advice I can give you is if the doctors gave you any type of antibody ointment USE it. It will cut the healing time in half.
All of my states are showing I am much bette. My fasting sugar was 97 this morning. My blood pressure is up to normal, My blood oxygen in almost that of a normal person low 90s without oxygen and almost 100% with oxygen. My sleep patterns are back to normal. The only thing that is not getting better is the anemia. Hopefully some of these test will show how to cure that.

Justme9898 - Glad that you are doing better and that you have a plan and goals. That kind of life focus is so important to give life meaning and purpose.
Plant sale was insane in the morning with all the plant groupies showing up and spending $400-$500 or more on plants. It was amazing. It quieted down from 11:00 on. My face got a little throbby in the afternoon. I think it was from wearing a mask. It also got warm in the afternoon and my face got hot which I think bothered the scar a bit. The sale continues tomorrow although there isn't a huge selection of plants. I picked up chocolate mint, Mojito mint, lavender and basil to attempt to grow.
Have a great Sunday!

Corquet - or one thousand people each looking for one plant. Hope all is well with your stitches. I always found getting them out to be as big a pain as getting them in.
Yesterday I went down through the rabbit hole, but I have climbed back out today. I was getting depressed because I was a burden to my family. Last night I realized if I don't want to be a burden then down't be one. I have to call on other people to help me not just my daughter. I am feeling much moire up beat. My grand children came to visit me today and a put them all to work, taking my winter clothes upstairs, taking out my trash and just doing those little things I keep asking my daughter to do. I also told them I need a babysitter when my daughter and her family go to Hawaii this summer and got each of them to say they would do that. My next thing is getting to the local back to open an account the bank I have used for the last 30 years shut down my local brand and the closest branch is now 40 miles away. There is a bank a mile from me. The only problem is you have to open an account in person, so I cannot drive at the moment. I will have a friend take me and hopefully I can do everything through the drive through. The last thing is to get my son's name on the title of the house. He is going to have to take charge of that. I have goals and plans and that is making me feel better.

Justme9898 - That is fab you are feeling better! Keep focusing on your job of getting well! We want you healthy, well and Sparking!
Tomorrow I get the 5 stitches out of my face. I plan on going to work afterwards. I hope I am up to it. At work, we are getting ready for a 2-day plant sale. A local radio station mentioned it in the morning news saying that we had 1000s of plants for sale! Well, not quite - maybe several hundred. I hope we won't be overrun with people looking for thousands of plants!

I am feeling better. My granddaughter is back in school. She is 13. So a little girl on the road to growing up. My son’s insurance has a ten thousand dollar deductible on Psyc. Yes you read that right. So I am paying 50% of her doctor costs. I have no idea how families without resources can possibly get help. I have been doing exciting things like bathing and washing clothes. My daughter has taken over everything here at home. She says my only job right now is to get better

Hi. The most important thing right now is to know ," this too shall pass". Sometime time easier to say than do. But, for the body to heal you must center on you. You must put yourself ( no matter whats going on), in a better place( in your mind).

My continued prayers for a quick recovery
David.

It has been really rough here. My 13 year old granddaughter attempted suicide. She has been in a ppsyc ward for the last 10 days. Her father brought her home yesterday. I have been in the hospital with pneumonia for the last 7 days. If my daughter had not insisted I go to emergency I probably would have died. My blood oxygen was down to 70. I am home now with oxygen. This too shall pass, but right mow life is rough.

Hi! I am holding up ok. Took today and tomorrow off from work. I look afright though with black and blue eyes, bruised nose and a row of stitches.
That is exciting your garden is growing. We are having a 2-day plant sale at work next weekend and I worked on plant labels. I was amazed at how many types of tomato plants there are and stunned at the sheer quantity of garlic plants there are. I might pick up an herb or two.
Good news too that the asthma is in check.
Take care.
Gigi

croquet, holly molly...
I hope after a spill like that you are okay, and up to doing the presentation. Please be careful and the best wishes on your presentation.

I just came in from putting out and watering the veggies containers. They now have company at night in our outside laundry room. Thats attached to the house. One of the feral cats my wife( who by the way has cat allergies), and our gd have been feeding in the back yard, had 3 kittens.... I was worried at first that the cats would mess with the plants as the first week they turned one of the pots over. But, they seem to be leaving them alone now. Still waiting for my 1st harvest. The green onions and tomato plants( almost chest high, are growing great . One of the tomatoe plants are about a foot taller than the other and is producing a few fruit. I'm kind of excited as I've never tried to grow food barring plants before.
Anyways, gs asthma seems to be in check. Mom and grandma insisted I take him to day care so he can get out and play. My fingers are crossed. I told Mgr at daycare they could call me at anytime.
Well, jumping in shower so will end for now.
Everyone take care and be safe.
David.

Hi from NY on a beautiful sunny day. I did something real stupid. I tripped on a bath mat. I landed on my knees and hinged forward smashing my face! 2 cat scans later, I got a tetanus shot and 5 stitches between my nose and lip where I cut it open! I look a fright with a swollen nose and a bump on my head. I have to do a Zoom presentation on Tuesday, That will be a challenge. I will have to do it masked!

HELLO ALL.
After talking to gs s pediatrician, she agreed to have him see an asthma specialist. They added meds. He hardly does anything and goes in destress, coughing and sometimes throwing up. I'm going to continue to keep him home. I want him checked before he goes anywhere.
I'll be doing less cleaning around house as he's always under foot. He will be 3 on the 11th.
Even if I'm only step grandpa he feels like my own baby. Both him and his sister(9yrs).
Got to go. Everyone have a great wednesday

Hi.
Kiddo still having trouble with the asthma and respiratory problems. This child does not sleep. He stayed up late as everyone but him and stayed home. The family started drifting in between 1230 and 1am. Kiddo fell asleep at 1240am and woke at 620am for the day.
Got some cleaning done around the house and since it wasn't raining , put out all my plants and watered them. We've had a lot of heavy rain and a little flooding the last few days.
Since wife is here and kiddo knocked out, I'm going to jump in shower. Then, go finish the laundry.
Just me , hope your feeling better by tomorrow.
I haven't logged food or anything past couple days as kiddo has been keeping me busy. The only reason he is asleep now is because he threw up(mocos),and that wore him out.
I'm around .
David

So Friday I got sick. Food poisoning. OMG I spent all day Saturday pooping and all day Sunday vomiting. I would sleep 2 hours and then wake up and vomit. Then I would go back to sleep and repeat in 2 hours. ?The only thing I could put on my stomach was ginger ale. I am still tired, but no longer sick now I am just exhausted.

Happy Tuesday
Right now life is good. I am waiting for my lift for my scooter. My grandchildren are in school today. I had a pedicure and a wonderful foot and leg massage to go with it. I always feel both pampered and decadent when I get one. I had eggs Florentine for breakfast and a ca BLT for lunch. Dinner will be pan roasted chicken with mushrooms bok choy and pineapple. Breakfast was under 350 cal I still need to log lunch
Hope everyone has a great day

It was kind of funny how I solved my lunch delima I ate left overs from the kid's lunch. my grand son left about a third of a hamburger patty so I ate that and 2 french fries, a cutie rounded the whole thing off.
I started this morning on a good note. A spinach omelet and a glass of milk. Even though I only drink 1% milk and even then it is really hihg in calories. I need it to make it easier to take my pills. My blood sugar has been great usual at 80-90

Hi everyone!
Justme9898- that is too funny about the purple slime!
Sounds like a good food plan. You should eat to your Spark range to keep your energy up and to get all your micros in.
I am Happy to report the rain stopped just in time for the girl scouts but it was like dealing with human ping pong balls! They had a hard time focusing on the one thing in front of them.

David - Do get the shot. There is a certain piece of mind that comes with it. Also, you don't have to be quite so leary of other people. At work, we are all vaccinated and it makes a difference dealing with the public.

David - you can rest easy about the one time shot. The problem is with women between the ages of 20 and 40 and even in that group it is only one in a million. Get the shot the chances of you dying of covid are far higher. Had to laugh about your gs mine decided to make purple slime. His hands have now been purple for 3 days. Yesterday his father told him to wash his hand and both his mother and I laughed and said "It's not coming off"

Croquet the weather has changed here also it was in the high 70s a couple of days ago and now the wind is blowing and it is in the low 50s. I like fall much better than spring

I just got back from the store. Monday will be fish, Tuesday will be chicken. Wednesday will be beans and Thursday will be the leftover chick then is is my daughter's turn to cook over the weekend. Had another healthy omelet for breaky and am trying to decide if I should eat lunch. I am not hungry but should I eat to keep my blood sugar and the correct level? I do not take insulin so it is not imperative that I eat.

took yesterday off.
Wife and gd out of town to her parents.
Daughter,her girlfriend, and gs were out till late last night. I had the house to myself.
Striped bed for forth time this past week. Gs poured his big red soda all over our bed...don't ask why....
I'm sitting out in back porch waiting to put clothes in dryer and start another load. Thought ild check in.
Yesterday I got appt for lab, and follow up in person Dr visit. This will be the first time I actually go into office. Up to now its been virtual visits. They asked if I was interested in coming shot. I said I guess so. Am scheduled to go this next Friday as a walk in. I was kind of surprised that they said it would be the one time shot. I was told they did away with it. I don't know. Too many " war stories" of how many people have died after the shot. I have blood pressure , heart disease, congestive heartfailure, etc. It worries me to both take it and not take it.
I guess thats all up to " the man upstairs". I want to believe they know what they are doing.
Got to go. Washer just stopped. Ttul.

Croquet - spaing sounds wonderful. I love it when I get a facial and they give me an upper body massage. I feel so decadent absolutely Roman.

Life is still running away from me. The kids go back to distance learning May 10. That means I will have 4 weeks of full time teaching.I think it will be better than the chaotic scheduling we are doing at the moment. Every day has a different time schedule. My GD who was at the high end of grade level has fallen back . She need routine and does not do well without it. My daughter is trying to decide what to do next year. She does not wan to send the kids back until ther is a vaccine for children.

Justme9898 - It is amazing to hear that schools are opening. If I had kids, I would keep them out until next fall.
Letting go of things you can't control is a good thing, but can be hard.
I had my arm consult. I think I am going to get the fat cut off my arms.. The surgery will take 4 hours. I will be home 2-3 weeks, back to lower body exercise in 4 and full in 6.
Had a nice afternoon today spa-ing in a salt room! It was so soothing and healing.
Have a great weekend!

Life happens. Just tired with everything that happened at once. The school are going to be open full time. We had to decide if the grannies would go back to school full time or do distance learning full time. We decided on distant learning full time so I will be teaching 6 hours a day. They will go back next year.
We grandson and grand daughter both made honor roll so I gave they a gift card. They are taking a field trip to Washington DC. It makes me nervous since they are too young to be vaccinated yet will have to fly there. GD had to wait and year. GS had to wait a year and a halt. So they are definitely going also we would lose the 3 thousand dollar cost. I am also worried about my GS because the only 2 of his friends that are going is a pair of twin that are constantly in trouble. Even he says they have no respect for anyone.
I guess I need to let go of those thing I cannot control. No sense in living in turmoil over something that might not even happened.
Stay well stay strong..

Well heres to another day.
Temp dropped from 80s to 50s.
When I took kiddo to daycare it was 56.
Suns out but cold breeze.
I need to get back to cleaning the house. Pretty much let everything slide while not feeling well.
Not that I want to but because that list is really growing. I also have onion bulbs I need to get in the pot today. I just have to read up to see what all I need to do.
Well, cleaning awaits. Hope everyone is starting out on a good morning.

Thankful this weekend is over. Stomach bug started with wife then me. We were taking care of both kids as Daughter and her girlfriend took off for the weekend.
Anyways, just got home from dropping gas at daycare. Dragged my plants out. 4 out of 5 look okay but my cucumber plant looks sick. They all stayed in the outside laundry room for weekend as I was only doing what was necessary. Still reading and learning on care of plants.
I haven't been able to figure out how to add pics here. I did post 2 pics on my sparkpage under pictures. 1 shows plants the week after I transferred the the seedlings from their container into pot. 2nd pic shows current pic of tomato plants.

Croquet - just a word of warning. I had a friend that lost 150 lbs. She had skin removed from stomach, legs and arms. She said the arms hurt the worst because you have to use them. She also said that she would do it all again in spite of the pain. You go girl. Make the most of it.

David - nice to have you back. I hope your family all gets well. If you can post a pic of your container garden. I would love to see it

I am doing fine. I am still doing my best to eat clean. I did have a half of a brat for breakfast this morning. Gave the other half to the kids. Now that the house is done and the car is done my life is much easier. I am working on getting all of my medical procedures done that I skipped for the past year and a half. Plus I have to find a new dentist. Wether her is definitely turn toward spring. It has been in the high 60s low 70s and is now inching up into the mid 70s. Sun shining brightly everyday.

goal is to be able to walk again

Hi all.
Well the plants will remain in the laundry room today. It went from 89* yesterday to high of 62 today. We have had heavy rain and lightning off and on this morning with strong winds. It seems calm right now but I don't want to chance the weather tearing up the plants.
I'm taking on a 48 hr watch of the kids. My Daughter and her girlfriend went to rent a room for the weekend. Normally my wife would be helping but I told her to stay in bed and rest. She had a bad night of throwing up. We don't know why, hopefully just a 24 hr bug.
I got to go change a diaper but ill check in later. Everyone enjoy your day.
David.

Hi from New York. I had to work outside At work today greeting and collecting tickets to see our Spring fairy show in our glass house conservatory. The sun shone, it rained, it crunched, it hailed and I pretty much froze! Hopefully it will be warmer when I ticket collect over the weekend. Have a great weekend!

Short and quick.
Little man just not acting himself yet. I told his mom and my Wife. Wife agreed and took him to get checked at the children's clinic. Rather be safe than sorry. Hurried thru and got some chores done at the house while they are gone. Going to jump in shower really quick.
Weather changing again. By Saturday Temps going down to 50 with upper 60s / 70 for couple days. May work on my container garden a bit and get outside. Am planting onions and lettuce. Will use the medium pots I transferred the tomato plants from. Still have poting soil let over, will use that up.
Okay....got to go.
David

Hi from a rainy New York.
My second covid shot caught up to me 28 hours later! I was ironing when all of a sudden I had to grab hold of the ironing board because I was hit by a wave of nausea! 2 hours later I was fine. However, the next day, I was just not feeling right. 3 of my co-workers who also had shots when I did also experienced feeling not quite right. At least it passed and now back to normal, but very weird.
Next week I am going for a consult about getting the hanging skin on my arms removed. It should be interesting. I will keep you posted.
David - how nice your container garden is doing so well. Also, trying to get ahold of Drs and make appts. can be so annoying. When I broke my shoulder, it was a month before I had surgery because it took weeks to get appoints with the specialists I needed to see.
Hang in there everyone!
Gigi

sorry, a bit busy last 2 days. Im trying to get done what I need to around the house. I also have both kids home with me. Little man is coming down with cold / upper respiratory problems again. His mom and her girl friend both have it. His bed is in their room so I expected it. No one said to keep him home but I knew he wasn't feeling well.
My container garden is really taking off. Had to repot tomatoes from a 14 in pot to a half barrel. I have another I need too also but just haven't found the time.
I've been eating " dirty" and too much again. My hernia is almost twice the size. Still haven't been able to make contact with gastro Dr the insurance set up for me. Gave up on call messages and have wrote them twice in past 3 weeks. No response. Frustrating how we have to wait on their time when we are the ones paying.
Little man still asleep. Clothes coming out of dryer. Got to go hang them up. Will try to check in again when I can.
Have a great day.
David

Hi everyone!
Beachwear and Justme9898 - I am sending out healthy thoughts to you!
Justme9898 - Keep clean eating. It should resolve a lot of health problems. Are you tracking your cals and micros too?
Thinking of you both!

David - How Are you doing?

Beachwear - I am very curious about your recent diagnosis. My GFR was 59, but I have no idea what that means. Does it mean 50%. that was what mine was on my last test. I have been having a horrible time with edema and had the test because of that. Any information you can give me would be appreciated. My doctor has been slow getting back to me which is unusual.
I am still eating clean, I really have to work on portion size and contents. I have to eat food both before and after taking my pills. Before is easy but after is a pain in the neck.
David - Hope all is well.
Corquet - You are a great example of what can be done. Keep up the good work

I'm glad that you are done with your second Covid shot Croquetcourt with minimal side effects. Always a plus.

Went to my RA Dr. yesterday. Terrible news, found out my kidneys are working at 50% so now I need to see a specialist. He decreased my medications as much as he could so now I wait and see. I also found out all my shoulder pain is because I have a frozen shoulder. Never heard of that before. I'm checking with my normal Dr. before I see an orthopedic.

On a good note I was down two pounds this week. So far down 18 pounds for the year. Hoping I can stick with the 2 pounds per week instead of the 1 pound that has haunted me.

Its only 31 degrees here this morning, only a coating of snow so that will be gone shortly. We finally get to see the sun after almost 1 1/2 weeks of rain. Still cold but at least sunny. Should help with the mood.

Wishing everyone a great day today.

Hi everyone! My second covid shot caught up to me at 4 in the afternoon - 28 hours after I had it. I felt all oogy and like I had to throwup. Happily it passed quickly and I was fine by 6. Overall very strange.

Beachwear - I am sorry that you are expecting snow. I hope we are done with it in New York.
That is good news your son and daughter-in law are over Covid.

Take care everyone!

Good morning everyone; Another rainy day in MN. This has been frustrating. We had rain all last week and now again last night, today and even a couple inches of snow forecasted for Tuesday. Such a bummer. I really hate spring. My favorite time of year is fall.

Clean eating is tough to do and I commend both of you for doing so. Great job.

My son went back to work after Covid on Thursday last week and my daughter-in-law went back today. I am so happy that this is over. My son lost 21 pounds during this whole thing. That's a lot of weight in 2 weeks to lose. Not sure how many my daughter-in-law lost but I'm assuming close to the same if not more. She was much sicker and for a longer period of time.

I transplanted 1/2 of my tomato plants yesterday to larger pots. Approximately 70 plants. I have another 70 or so to get done. I'm hoping to sell some this year at the farmer's market. I will see how it goes. My peppers are looking great and I need to get those transplanted as well. I have about 100 of those to do. If the rain would ever stop and it would just stay warm here I would like to do some early planting in my garden. Hoping to get the radishes, some potatoes, onions and maybe some lettuce planted early. Has anyone tried growing mushrooms for eating? I'm thinking of giving it a try, but if I do I need to start soon from what I'm reading.

Hoping everyone has a great day!!

Justme9898 - Woo-hoo to you for clean eating! I clean eat due to food intolerances. I don't eat wheat, soy corn, eggs, rice, potatoes, tomatoes, dairy, fish, and a bunch of other things. It makes eating a challenge but I do feel great.

Corquet - I know exactly what you mean about winning the lottery. I was sure this was going to be a death sentence for me because of my severe asthma and host of other contributing conditions. Instead I lived through the year and got my shot.
Beachwear so sorry about your son and his wife/. Hope they both continue to improved
David - you sound much better, but you are very good at hiding things when they are bad. I hope all is well with you.
Me - I am so proud of myself. I have two day of completely clean eating. Calories under 1200, nothing from a package or take out and all no salt seasoning. No heavy starches, no rice, no pasta, no potatoes. I did have yams one night. So I am working on day three today and it looks good.

Woo-hoo! I just got my second covid shot! I feel like I won the lottery! I really didn't think that would happen until the fall or later. Just hoping I don't get any after effects. Was told that if you are under 50, for Pfizer, the after effects can be bad. Since I'm 61, was told I should be able to go to the gym tomorrow! I will let you know.

Hi everyone! I don't know about you, but I find time flies by often faster than I do! I really need that 8th day of the week! Working full-time, going to the gym 5-6 days a week, meal prepping, keeping up with friends and house chores just eats up free time! I guess it is life in the 21st century! I hope everyone is well and enjoying spring. The 2 pounds I have been gaining and losing for months seems to be gone and hasn't come back. Yeah!!
