Bedroom done about 75 percent. Much better!

Burned cedar to clear space, white candle for positive energy, and brown candle for grounding.

Even sis feels the difference!

Did front room...vacuuming, dusting, even moving around furniture. Nice! Incense and white candle burned.

I have one shoe on to take Buds for a walk. He brought me two shoes but they don't match. AND... one of my favorite walking shoes is missing. I would like to blame him for that too. Maybe if I would actually put my shoes in the shoe rack....however, he can reach the lower ones and separate those too. Got to love him. Off for my morning walk now.

I hope so, I have a headache and my heart feels fluttery this morning. I am sure it is the tooth. Better take an airborne to help my poor immune system. Only two more days. Then I can start mending.

I am so happy for you. Feeling better mentally sure helps the physical. In fact I quit listing how I felt in my food journal. One of the assignments was to record how you felt and what you were thinking. That turned out to depress me. I started recording everything I did right during the day instead of focusing on the wrongs. I feel more like journaling my food again and staying on track. This month's goals from the health coach are to get Buds walked and breakfast ate by 9am. Set timer as needed to stay on track. Continue with the positive "done" list.

Tooth comes out on Monday. I periodically have angst about that. Stupid, stupid. I made the decision. Praying it is the right one. I don't need to waste days fussing about it. I can be a dog and enjoy the here and now.

Resting after a three day drive to get away from Dorian. I only drive about five hours a day. That's all I can take with my arthritis.

The pooches did well on the drive. They know the routine. Stop, go potty quickly, and run back to get in the car. Sis and I had nice hotel rooms. We stay at La Quinta because they take dogs. They have a good complimentary breakfast too.

I did do two loads of laundry and climbed stairs to do it. Took Daisy for a nice walk today. Beautiful place with large mature trees. It felt like 70 degrees even though it was 90.

Been watching comedies and laughing my can off. My sis thought something was wrong at first as she hadn't heard a good belly laugh from me in a while.

My new therapist has helped me already. So glad I found a good one.

triple digits last two days. Back into the 80s today. I can breathe again. Today's goal is to start making the diaper cake for the shower and to vacuum the living room.

Yes, that was part of the pacing routine I adopted when I got sick. Ten minutes rest, ten items put away or washed, forty minutes quiet things like knitting, reading, writing etc. Then would start over with a ten minute lay down, ten items put away etc. I didn't crash and burn doing that and also felt productive.

Good to hear.

I had a few good days followed by a bad one. Floors were completed. We got a quote to paint but decided to just hold off for now. The floors turned out nice.

Thank you. It went away quickly, so I need to watch the peanut butter intake. Feeling really good now. Wonder if I wasn't fighting a virus. Everyone around was sick. I missed full on flu and I didn't even take any airborne.

Coolish again so I am able to get some yard work done. Not feeling quite so fatigued. Heat is not a friend to CFS.

I am having a little weight on my chest. I think it is because I ate a bunch of pnut butter. Think I will take an aspirin just in case. Need to get some water drank and then I will head to Longview to get my new glasses.

Stayed home from IRD today, so I would have enough energy to attend the wedding. My GD is a dancing machine. She is such an energetic and happy dancer. It was a fabulous wedding. Had three dogs in attendance. The goat got loose. The weather was perfect. I heard the ladies portapotty went bad. My ex-relatives are all still dancing even in their late 60s.early 70s Pretty incredible. Guess I know where GD gets it.

Did I mention the wedding was outdoors in the middle of a tree farm with huge second growth fir. They had a tent, fairy lights, DJ. Outdoor bar and server. Catered BBQ. It was magical. They also had the donkey and goats for the kids to pet, and several other areas set up as play areas for small children. My ex-sister-in-law is a genius. Hiking trails all over too.

Buds has butt blankets in the car and on his chair (it used to be mine) and the couch.

Fresh hair do always feels great.

Hope you continue to feel better. I came home from IRD and had a crash. I did walk almost 10,000 steps. I was suppose to drive myself in to IRD today and come back early and go to a wedding. I decided to stay home and recuperate instead so I can enjoy the wedding. Justin Osmond was the motivational speaker yesterday. His dad is the oldest Osmond brother. He was there supporting him. Justin looks so much like Uncle Donny. It was a great presentation on overcoming adversity. He is a deaf musician. The violin is his primary instrument. I wished he would have played a song for us too.

He said that when it came time to practice it was a cacaphony in his house with his siblings, so he shut his hearing aides off and discovered he could feel all the vibrations and hear just a little of his music only. There is always an upside no matter our diversities. He also talked about his deaf accent and kept teasing the Canadians that he sounded like them. Very personal with his audience. www.facebook.com/osmondsoundadvice/

I hope your MRI is clean. We do not want brain lesions.

I too had another dental appt. and a cleaning finally today. The next one is a consult with the periodontist to have the tooth pulled and implant put in. So that makes five different consults. Gotta love Kaiser. Lots of driving, but at least, they haven't charged me yet. Praying they will pull and plant on the same day. I do not want to go around with a gap for months healing and then have to heal all over again from the implant. lower left molar, but not the last one, so it will be noticeable too.

Tomorrow starts TOPS IRD International Recognition Days. People from all over Canada and US will pour into Portland to honor the division weight loss winners. SRD State Recognition Days is fun. This should be great too. Also have a wedding to attend Saturday evening. Glad I am feeling pretty good again. Then I have a breather and the following week want to take younger GKs to observatory and road trip for a couple days.

Third day of being quite active this week and I don't feel quite as good as yesterday, so plan is to stay low keyed over the weekend.

Went to dentist, drove halfway to beach to find a good pie for my other friend's birthday. Rode the ferry across the river, had a beautiful scenic drive down the Washington side on the way home.

Took Buds downtown and walked him around one block.

Tired now and ready for bed. But very very happy.

Today was my best day yet.

I drove two hours RT to drop off heart monitor.

Friend rode with me so we stopped at Ross's to go dress shopping for my cruise.

I tried on dresses and bought one too.

We went to lunch.

We stopped at a nursery.

I still haven't taken a nap and it is time to go to bed.

Woohoo!

Sick today, but still had to get up and do. Canceled appt to pick up mouthguard.

Dropped 190 pts in glucose since yesterday...may be why I feel ill + looks like sinusitis to developing.

Washed dishes at sink.

Made lunch, poached chicken with sides

Cleaned rest of bathroom.

Cleared out fridge.

Took out trash.

Frustrated I had to do so much the way I feel, but should be grateful I was able to do it.

Bud still eating well and exercising with granddaughter.

I got the home heart monitor on today and am already glad it is for 24 hours only and I haven't even tried to sleep with it. Struggling with chills and mild headache at moment.

Vet said it is not a tick. It is infected. The sample showed a couple cancer cells. The plan is two weeks of antibiotics and then another sample draw which will be sent to a pathologist for cancer screening. We also have a date scheduled to remove the lump in late June about a week before I leave on the cruise. I will double check that for recovery time. I may need to reschedule the surgery. She also said his teeth are bad and they do look bad. They looked good still when I took him to vet for his yearly immunizations. So it has been less than a year. I am going to start brushing his teeth with bentonite clay and coconut oil to get them back to pearly white before next visit.

Poor Buds nose broke open and bled. I can't get into the vet till the 28th so they referred me to Beaverton which is a lot of highway driving, then windy country road with switchbacks and then city driving. I can barely drive around town and keep my wits about me. I called another vet, in town, and she thought I might be able to get on their walk in list if I call tomorrow at 8:30. Buds seems fine now. So going to do that.

I only had shingles once and that was during a really high stress period. I have heard lidocaine patches help with the pain. I have used them on other back pain and it numbs the area.

Able to walk Buds a little farther today, kept the dishes washed and ate healthy, thought a bit high carb. I made a soup out of my huge cauliflower, added some beans (pre cooked dried pintos) and noodles, a can of Rotel, onions, some left over red pepper tomato soup and some cream of celery soup, I had on hand for thickening and seasoning. It looked liked pasta fazool to me, so I looked up several recipes and other than the cauliflower, that is exactly what it was. So I had that for breakfast and lunch and then a chicken sandwich for dinner with dried tomatoes on it. So yes I did have about one too many servings of wheat. But it brought me great comfort and the calorie count should still be fine. Yep about 1500 calories.

Wonderful!

Got an important email with lots of attachments off today, and fixed a nice, low carb fish stew. Fixed breakfast for sis, too even though I didn't eat it.

Realized I have an outbreak of shingles and that was why my BG was spiking the past few days.

The new shingles shot is probably crap like the last one. Found out the old shingles shot actually gives you more outbreaks of shingles. That's what is happening with this one, too. I feel like I have been had.

Thankfully I had valtrex on hand to start it immediately.

Of course now that my head is not working proper, everyone is telling me sea sick horror stories. LOL

Small blessings, my cabinet mate has major health issues and she has outfitted the cabin with a shower chair and wheelchair. So if worse comes to worse I can hang out with her on the balcony and I don't need to worry about being dizzy in the shower.

Seattle to Skagway

Going to ride the train to Skagway. Also going to ride amtrak to Seattle. That will be fun too. I think I may cancel my reservation for the glacier if it is not too late. I don't think I will be up to that much walking even if everything is on the mend properly.

My very first cruise, organized by a friend so I know several people going.

Better today, It is 11:30 and I have gotten several things accomplished. Need to lay down now.

Hadn't thought about a bath chair, but I am now back in the tub, thank goodness. If I have to go back to showers, I will borrow a bath chair from the Senior Center. Hopefully, They won't be poking any more holes in me.

I wonder if all this stuff has set off a chronic fatigue cycle. Will keep fighting. I don't want to miss the cruise.

Very tired today.

Made a wonderful salad for lunch. Had a caesar salad kit but I added more parmesan cheese, and chopped ham, arugula, red bell pepper, and a few sliced strawberries. I gave the croutons and most of the dressing to sis. The salad tasted so good without dressing! I have to remember this combo of ingredients. Lovely.

Resting and watching Andre Leon Tally documentary on Hulu. What a beautiful man, inside and out.

Ordered new dishwasher. It will be installed next week. So happy. I washed dishes by had for 27 years before traveling with sis to her homes. I am still good at it. It can be meditative, but I certainly didn't want to return to it full time. I surprised her with it. She's had unexpected expenses lately. I told her it was an early b day and xmas present and I just because present! She said it was those presents for the next two years. :)

I have a bath chair in my shower. It helps. So many things to accommodate our needs. I had to switch to using the bath chair all the time a few months back.

Sending prayers and peace.

Had to look up kissing bugs. Don't think I ever encountered them in Texas. They are also known as assassin bugs and carry the chagas infection. Not a good thing. And apparently their territory is spreading.

Glad you got a lot accomplished too. Son came over and mowed for me, fixed my glasses and went to bank so I could have cash to give to GS to do some shopping.

Yesterday was a less than one on my CFS scale. meaning I wasn't even able to get an hours of moderate work in broken up over ten hours. Today is a one. I was able to do some watering and dishes and self care. I even took a bath. It was one day early, but everything looks healed from the angiogram and I was so missing my baths. Also lower center of gravity when I get woozy. I kind of had a fear of falling in the shower. I took a bird bath on Thursday because I felt so bad. I have managed to get dressed everyday. So that is good.

Did a lot today, online grocery shopping, took out trash three times from the kitchen from throwing out old food, took bedroom trash out, sat in a chair to clean off shelves and bins in fridge, put groceries away using chair to roll back and forth, broke down boxes, etc. Whew! Glad today was pretty good as I think tomorrow will be spent in bed.

Big storms here today. So glad we were inside. The kissing bugs were messing around on my car, and later hooked up in the air in droves messing around. Found kissing bugs in my delivered groceries. Later, when I took pooch for a walk, I had to raise my T shirt over my nose so they wouldn't fly in my mouth or nose.

I am sorry you are struggling with the fatigue again. Hope you are finding sunshine and pacing beneficial.

Spent three days in hospital and look like a purple pincushion. Test results are starting to roll in. One doctor called it angina. My heart beat is really slow and no one seems interested. I had been fatiguing for awhile before the severe chest pain. The diagnosis on my Kaiser page calls it coronary artery disease. So on statins like the rest of the world. Hopefully they will help. Follow up with phone consult on the 15th and then initial visit with my primary in early June.

That tooth that is bothering me is not salvagable. I was referred back to my dentist for extraction and I am going to pay for an implant. So that is a bit depressing too.

Can't hardly eat. Food tastes wonderful, but after about four bites my stomach objects. I have been forcing down about 1200 calories a day. It has been great for weight loss, but a little alarming. Which reminds me, I better go eat.

Also, I have been practicing pacing like crazy.

Good to hear!

I am totally exhausted these days with additional stress due to neighbor issue. Lord love a duck.

Doing dibs and dabs today and resting a lot. Laundry, reorganized pantry, got another box ready for goodwill, need to do a lot more but I can't. Need to accept what I can do and relax into things.

Watching Chernobyl miniseries on HBO. Heavy Duty stuff!

FOUND IT! In a basket on the book shelf. Last place I looked. I was within the 72 day window so was able to register online. Printed my temp registration so good to go. Just need to watch mail now for stickers.

Feeling a tad better about myself now too. Back to finding JOY! Always a good thing despite feeling tired. Think I will clean off table and call it a day and just relax for the evening.

Shoot, can't do that either. Need to set up program for TOPS tomorrow. Want to talk about the evils of sugar and processed fake sugars. Wonder what SP has to say about that.

So swamping out the car today for the detailing on Thursday, it appears my registration is past due. I don't ever remember getting a notice. Need to fix this ASAP. I have two places to look for old mail, I might have hidden. Wish me luck.

Met up with kids, grandkids and my friend and her granddaughter at the MEGGa Hunt. I was Egg Troll for the 0-2 age group til the scramble. After, we met up for petting zoo, planting zone, horse rides and other activities. Then we went out for Pizza. Another nice weekend and the weather was perfect.

Next weekend is the Writer's Retreat. It will be great fun too. My April sure has been busy. Glad tax season is over.
