I finally decided before bed to take one of my anti-inflammatory pills I use for my PMR and so thankful I did after about a week of aching from hip to heel on my left leg I woke up with much less pain. I plan to take another one tonight and hopefully I can feel "normal" again. I didn't connect the pain with my PMR-I guess it has decided to rear it's ugly head in a totally different way. I usually ache in my shoulders and arms or my whole body not a single limb!

A hot one today-95-so I have pretty much done my walking inside and believe it or not, I have managed to get in 8K and hope to hit at least 9 before I got to bed. This will be the only day I didn't get 10 this week.

Thank you everyone. Yes set hours are going to be much better. I am really looking forward to it.

Pat - Glad to hear that Bill is doing better. Stay cool. I guess I won't complain about our 83 degrees today. We thought that was hot here. HA!

VAl - Sounds like you are going to have a lot of fun. I think Purple hair is very beautiful. Some the girls I work with at Kohl's dye their hair Blue, Purple, Orange, Aqua and Green. It's fun to see what their hair is going to be next. I am sure your Dad will be surprised at first but then get use to it by the time you leave. Have a great time and have fun!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! emoticon

Val I hope you have a great trip and after all your travels find the perfect job.

We are not pushing ourselves this weekend. DH needs to rest and relax more and can't be out in the heat-we hit 95 this afternoon with a heat index over 100. We did walk early this morning when it was still cool.

Sandy, I'm so pleased that you have found a better job. Having set hours, and a guaranteed number of hours every week, should really be helpful for you in a lot of ways. I hope it works out to be a really great job that you will love. emoticon

I got my car checked out yesterday and on Tuesday I'm taking my kitty to get her shots so that she can be boarded while I'm out of town. Next Thursday (June 1st) I'm going to drive to Flagstaff. I'm going to check out hospitals in that area and spend some time with a high school friend and his wife. Then on the 3rd (Saturday) I'll drive down to the Tuscon area and spend a couple of days with my parents before driving home. When I get back from that trip I'm going to finish making plans to go visit my brother and his wife in Ohio at the end of June or the beginning of July. And after that trip I'm going to start applying for jobs here in town. I really, really don't want to have to move...

Starting tomorrow or the next day I'm going to have purple hair. Not sure how my dad's going to take it so that's going to be a fun thing to find out. emoticon I'm going to try to post some pictures of my experiments with hair colors on my Spark page but if the files are too large for Spark then I'll just tell you guys how to find them on Facebook. I think that will probably wait until after my trip, but I figured it's about time that I let all of you guys see me with crazy hair...

Anyway, not much else to talk about right now. I hope that Gail is having a great time on her trip, and I hope that the rest of you have a great weekend here at home. Talk to all of you again soon. emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

Sandy that is wonderful. I am sure you will enjoy not having to work weekends and holidays and having a set schedule.

It has been a busy week for us. We have had several dr appointments and DH got good reports at both his cardiologist and primary care physician. I saw my dermatologist and passed with flying colors. Being as I am in the sun quite a lot, I get an annual skin check. Too many friends have had to have cancerous sites removed to I am trying to stay ahead of things.

Poor Abbie had a rough day Wed. I had her scheduled for her teeth cleaning but they didn't tell me she needed blood work before they could do it as she is over 8 yrs old. She spent about 6 hrs at the vet and didn't get her teeth cleaned as the results never came back. She hates being caged so was not a happy girl! She is scheduled for next Wed and I don't want to tell her she has to do it all over again!!

I have been doing good getting my 10K in this week-hit it every day and have had DH walking most days with me. Drs told us to be careful with the heat-he is not to get out in it when it is very warm & humid.

Well, had my second interview. The girls were really nice. I went to the bank and then to Costco. Then sent a Thank you e-mail to the girls for the meeting and that I look forward to hearing from them. Out of 143 candidates I got the job. I received a phone call shortly after I sent the e-mail. I start June 12th. It is a Monday - Friday 40 hrs a week. I get paid $14.00 hr. I am going into work today to drop off my 2 week notice. So, my last day will be June 8th at Kohl's. It is business causal dress at the office. The drive is a little further only by 10 mins.

Hope that everyone has a great weekend.

So happy DH is doing good. Amazing how much better he is already feeling. He walked about 1/2 mile with me today.

I spent the morning making phone calls. Amazing how much time that takes. Abbie is going to get her teeth cleaned on Wed.

Good luck Sandy.

Bill had his heart cath, found the widow maker was over 90% blocked so he has a stent now and had to spend the night in the hospital. He won't be able to have shoulder surgery for at least a year so going to have to figure out what to do about that while he rehabs from this.
Never a dull moment and now have to figure out how to pay for the medication he needs for the next year-almost $400 a month.

Had my interview and it seem to go well. I am just waiting to see if I get a second interview. Hoping to hear from them soon. I really liked the place and got a good feeling. But, we will see.
It was hard to get my foot into my shoe to walk normal as I didn't want them to know there was any problem. All my toes except my big toe are black and blue a long with the top of my foot. I can't even touch my pink toe or the one next to it without it sending me to the moon. Just taking it easy today. Work tomorrow and the next day then off again.


Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Sandy good luck on your interview. I do hope the foot/toes get to feeling better soon.

DH is scheduled for his heart cath on Thur. He isn't looking forward to it but needs that to be cleared for surgery and if something isn't right, it needs to be fixed.

So, I was heading to the closet in the gym room and thought I was missing the workout bench. But, NO! I slammed right into the leg of the bench. I pretty sure I broke my toe next to the baby toe. Today the 3 toes are black and blue and the top of the foot is also. I taped all three toes together. That is about all they would do if I went in. It hurts with my shoe on but, I manage. I have a job interview on Thurs. We will see how that goes.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Val I have to applaud you for being bold with your hair color. I have problems accepting it when mine turns red from coloring it!!

DH had a good report at his cancer doc. He will check him again in 3 mo. After that we went to the cardiologist and I was correct, DH has to have a heart cath. Only after that is done and all is ok will he be approved for surgery.

This afternoon I took Abbie to get her shots updated. I told them she had had a 3 yr rabies and didn't need a booster till next year BUT they didn't listen so she is definitely protected on that front. I have to schedule a teeth cleaning for her but can't do that until I know when DH will be scheduled. I am hoping soon as they have a special on this month and I could save $25.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I called and talked to both of my parents this afternoon but other than that I didn't do that much today. I'm going to start dying my hair the lightest purple color tomorrow. Maybe I'll be able to get someone to take a picture of it to show you guys. (I really should put pics of all my color experiments on my Spark page, just haven't gotten around to it yet.)

Hope the week starts out really well for all of you. emoticon

Sandy thanks for sharing that lovely poem.

I had a relaxing day. Went to church and then out to an early dinner with friends. Tomorrow will take DH to 2 dr appointments and hopefully cardiologist has a plan for DH.

So happy to report my house is almost back together. I have a big box of things to take to donate at the thrift store since I am changing the décor as we do the rooms. However now that we have fresh paint, I need to paint the closet doors-they look worn now!

I have been able to keep up with my walking and have gotten at least 10K in every day for the last week.

We received a coupon for a free meal with purchase of another meal from Ruby Tuesday for today so was happy to let them cook so I could keep working on putting everything back in place. It is so nice to be getting my spring cleaning done as well as a couple of "room makeovers".

I managed to get in 10K 6 out of 7 days last week so trying to keep things going in the right direction. Hopefully the painting of the bathroom, kitchen and hallway will be done by Wed and I can get things put back together by the weekend. Not sure when dr will want to do surgery for DH so trying to be ready for that.

I've been really lazy and haven't gotten much exercise at all recently...and it's showing. emoticon I've also been eating poorly. I haven't stepped on the scale recently but I can feel from the way my shorts and rings fit that I've gained a little bit recently. I'm going to have to do something about that...

Still unusually cool in Albuquerque, and I'm still more than happy to accept that. I've got to get off the computer and do some housework. I hope everyone's week is starting out really well. emoticon





There was much rejoicing!
