Hi! How is everybody? Done your Christmas shopping? Mine are all wrapped and ready to be given away! Did Julienne Hough's Cardio Ballroom workout today! I was dripping in sweat! But I can't dance as well as her but the important thing is to keep moving!

Abt to turn in for the night. Promised the Lord I would do my devotion b4 bed so I'd better do it now! Nite!

I feel this too, but I have no fears, only faith in Jesus and our Father.
I haven't decided what my Bible studies w/b today. Inspiration of what I'm needing most always comes, and really isn't decided by me.

Talking about the end times, the first Bible verse I read today had to do with that. Since supposedly the blood moon occurs about now, that did make me take pause.

HAPPY MONDAY!

IT IS my most favorite day ever! Monday is always amazing for me. It is because of my nature to make things, all things, to be the best thing possible. Each morning, I spend the time to decide what I am going to for myself that day for healthy lifestyle. I am living in health and fitness. Today, I did 7.2 miles, a brisk walking tour of nature. Lovely!

With all the chaos in the world, I too, am beginning to feel that it is now the end times. Men are pitted against each other, as are women. There's more, but I have editing to get back to. I also need to do some other things today.

I did get the carpet put back in the closet, a 45 minute hard job, also wrangled the 120 pound behemoth back in there too by flipping it over and over until it was set where I needed it to be. I can't say what it was safely. LOL.

Hi, I believe that angels and demons are real! Unfortunately, so is the Devil. I have a question : do you believe that the end of days is near? Do you believe the anti-Christ is already here? I believe that the precursor of the anti-Christ is here, the real one is not here yet. If he was, everything in the book of Revelation will be set into motion. I truly pray that I will be part of the rapture because I don't want to suffer under the rule of the unholy Trinity!

Hello ladies. Today is a great day! I feel like I am 25 years old. I slept a bit more than 12 hours last night. I went to bed at 4:30 pm and got up at 5am...only waking 2x to go to the loo and drink water during the wee hours. I feel very good and well rested. Occasionally I do a long sleep on purpose to get my body and mind fully recharged. People underestimate the necessity of sleep, especially a long sleep occasionally. I've been doing a lot of daily early morning long hard river trail walks and it sure feels good after. Especially now that summer is over, I'm taking advantage of cooler days.

I got an email from Carol. Her and Starr are n another SP team I guess.

Been looking for my electric shaver for months! At $85 I didn't want to replace it since I only got it last October. Today's plan was to not stop looking until I find it emoticon .
I found it! emoticon
It was in a plastic storage bag from January when we put 2 new faucets in the master bathroom. I had to empty the storage below sinks to give room to work. There was one full bag left to organize, found my nice Remington shaver in it. I'm happy...done early just after finishing my ridiculously early morning walk!

Last night I combed the few mats that my grey kitty had. She loved it. Purring nonstop.

I'm not a quitter. Going to get real crafty and creative today. Harp some, or a lot, too emoticon emoticon

The NOW brand of castor oil is what I used for reversing my small cataracts. Very little to no burning (for 1/2 second then gone) and far less irritating than using common Visine (which I dislike intensely). It's low cost under $10 for a 16 oz bottle and is food grade pure & hexane free. If you get a drugstore brand it will have hexane gas used to help extract the castor bean oil, even though it says USP food grade. But if it was hexane extracted it WILL BURN like heck. I read that on Dr. Shealy's website. I forgot to say what brand I used...use the NOW brand if you or your friends choose to try it.

Hi, Phyllis, I emailed u abt our project. How is it going? Still waiting for your reply. Or do u want me to email u agn? Thx.

How r u holding up? I still miss all my grandparents. I know I'd b v upset if I lost any of my parents. I really hope I won't have to but that is not my decision but God's. Going for a haircut today! I will post pics in my blog later! Going for a color this Thursday at a different hairdresser. My regular is too expensive, I only go to him for cuts.

That's why I m going to exercise now. I m really going to attack my body fat! I've decided that life is precious and I will really make an effort to limit my fluids and watch my portion sizes. I m the only one who can help myself. I know my parents will b extremely upset if I die, so I will do my best to stick ard! ;-)

I FIGURED OUT AND FIXED THAT LAST LINK!!
it has to be USP grade. I put mine in an empty Visine bottle. It does burn a bit, and eyes also water, but goes away in about 2-3 minutes. It's also said to make eyelashes and other hair grow back. I have plenty.
I told a few of my lady cronies about the website. It's their own decision. As it was mine. For me it worked but mine were small. Now are gone and no evidence of any cataracts ever being there! emoticon Kinda hard to argue against what worked. My optometrist was shocked at my last visit. I didn't tell her what I did. They don't accept alternatives too well. To each their own. Not my loss either. Didn't need glasses and I see fine.

It said it couldn't load the page. I have had cataract surgeries on both my eyes. It made me far-sighted which was something to adjust to since I had been near-sighted most of my life. I wear trifocals, where the part for far vision is mainly correcting some double vision.

working link now!

I have been doing this for about 5 mo. It works, as I had no sign of cataracts, they were small, but now totally gone. Alternatives to surgery and $$$$.

Yes, I am sad about my Mom. Thank you Nellie.

Here is a link for the Spark D (diabetes) program. It does have a setting for pre-diabetes to adjust your nutrition settings on your nutrition page where you enter the foods you eat. What is interesting is that the diabetic settings have the bottom setting for protein somewhat higher than for normal people, but the upper setting is considerably lower than for normal people.

Honestly! I am VERY disappointed with myself! After I went to see a renal dietitian too! Why do I feel hungry all the time?! I have to have more self control and not keep stuffing my face all the time! I REALLY REALLY need to get my diet under control! I will have to submit my bloodwork to the dietitian in 3 month's time.

My phosphate, potassium and blood sugar levels are way high! I really don't want to be prediabetic on top of everything else! I am so, so worried!

I'm spending the weekend in Vegas and I finally got my laptop set up completely so I can use my Last Pass password manager and get onto all my websites. No, no no to gambling! I don't do that stuff. Going to see a couple shows, and visit with my friend Kristin a few times. She has a pool, salt water pool. I can't wait to try that. We plan on walking on some nearby trails.

Next stop is Hoover Dam. Then Flagstaff AZ, where I will meetup with my group for a BBQ and ham.

Nellie, I bet Kindness is happy with the setup. Kitties do like to be neat and tidy. My Kaya gets bullied by Myra too. Not terribly bad, just that Myra is alpha cat.

Elaine, whassup??? Still got DOMS? How's the foot doing? I sprained my right foot a couple years ago, it still is touchy sometimes if I overdo my steps. BUT, Do some Pilates for me!

Kindness still lives pretty much under the bed. I think some of the others are bullying her. I do have a cat box under the bed now. My chore worker did lots of cleaning so the smell seems to have abated. (At least my super sniffer daughter hasn't complained.) I now have water under the bed also for that kitty. She does come out briefly when I am in the bedroom, so I pet her then.

I'm glad you can do the Pilates too ELAINE! emoticon I can't wait to get back to my dance DVDs. I picked up a new one in Reno last week, near Mom's hospital there was a fitness equipment store and I pulled in at that last second to see what they had that I wanted to get. There wasn't much that I didn't already have, except DVDs. emoticon

I've been walking a lot around and in the small towns, going antiquing. I did buy a lamp for my Victorian room. One day was 17,487 steps! Average is around 11,000. Not bad! emoticon

NELLIE? How is the kitty doing, not going under the bed? Did you get the smell cleared up? Not sure if you said, but I would put a litter box under bed. I love my kitties too! And my Paco! Can't wait to see DH and my babies!!!!! emoticon

It's called "Empress of China", it's the life story of China's only female emperor. It's very exciting. Sorry I have been absent but I just kept watching episode after episode!

I guess I'll have to do more Pilates till my foot heals! Sigh!

That makes sense Nellie, as cat urine is far stronger than dogs. Really, like 10x stronger.

I am tired today. Got woke up at 4am. I need more sleep and will nap later. Putting a veg stew in slow cooker for today. I brought a dance dvd along to do but only after I get a little sleep catchup, too tired to dance now, later it will happen. I uploaded a video onto youtube today, so that is done. I will try to upload it on my page vlogs too. It might be too long for SP vlog. I can't edit it until I get back home though as my editing program is on desktop and I only have the laptops with me.

Today we discovered that the main source of the odor was not the dogs, but was from a very shy kitty who mainly lives under my bed. Evidently some of the new cats (of which she is one) were bullying her when she tried to come out to drink water (which I had noticed and put a water dish under the bed) and also when she tried to access the cat boxes. Poor critter couldn't hold it long enough and was going under the bed. My sense of smell is about dead, but when my chore worker came today, he noticed! Most of his time here was spent trying to get rid of the odor and taking me to a store to get another cat box without a lid that would fit under the bed.

There ya go Nellie, hopefully this will help. You didnt' say what type of flooring/carpet is under the potty pads. If it is carpet, then it would be a odor removing carpet shampoo to really get the job done right. I have a carpet shampooer I'd love to give you, if only you lived closer....
I had another link to make your own animal potty pads that are washable. Another option would be to go to the goodwill, usually they have the square mattress protectors for incontinence that are used in the homes. Protects the beds and easy wash and dry. I've seen them many times while sis was here visiting, she drags me to ALL the goodwills within 25 miles. Not that I don't like to go, SHE DOES! Anyhow, you could get a plastic trashcan, put air holes in it, and sit it outside to store the used pads until wash day.

Here is the Humane Society link, they're my best friends, well, last month anyhow they were!

Both of my dogs are small breeds. I don't know whether that is why that they can't go through the night without needing to pee, or why sometimes in the day when I take them out every 2 hours, they still sometimes pee. I have potty pads which they go on, but sometimes they are peeing so close to the edge, that the pee goes over the edge and then underneath where it spreads out.

Since my daughter with whom I live has a super sense of smell, it is getting to her. Can any of you give me advice on what to do that doesn't cost too much to combat the odor. I change them every day in the evening, but evidently that is not sufficient. I am debating spraying the pee spots with vinegar or vinegar mixed with water, or perhaps the enzymatic spray I have. I can't afford to change the pad every time it is peed on

Elaine, sounds like you had your tab fun for the day, and probably many more days to come! Good for you, your little bro is prob pretty happy too!

Well, I am surely and totally the "Brat" of Surprise! We did, spend the day yesterday in very sunny and hot Surprise. It was quite a bit of fun, poking around in the local yet hidden away antique stores in kind of areas of barrios. I found a few nice things for my Victorian room. One day, I'll have to post photos on my page of that room. Back in 2003, I purchased an Elliot bedframe and it ain't cheap either, it's the Jasmine design. I would have liked the Vivian, but it is so large and tall, probably weighs 600 lbs at least. Very gorgeous antique reproduction, and Elliot himself sent me a card where all the employees signed it and wrote notes for me. They did that because, like always, I send thank you cards, and my bedframe is so amazingly beautiful, I felt like they did deserve a nice thank you. My letter is posted on the Elliot Wall of Fame, or so the card said so all employees can read it for inspiration. I guess even though they are so popular, they still get so few letters of thank yous, and most people today, don't shop USA products. I do. It went from there, to today, where now my entire room is basically Victoriana in design, mostly antiques. My bed frame probably weighs 300 lbs itself, I cannot even lift the headboard or footboard on my own when it's apart. If you bump into it, it's like bumping into DH in the hall, they don't move a bit and you WILL get hurt. LOLZ.

I did totally clean house today. I felt very good after getting out to Surprise. Maybe I will get some photos done in the morning. I'll let you know. I have sewing on the brain today, and also writing/editing. No rest for the J'ist in me. I have 5 more hours to explore and do some of my to do's.

My Dad just bought me a Tab S 10.5 as an early bday present. He also bought a Tab A 9.7 for my Mom. My Tab 2 has been handed over to my brother. I am over the moon. The display is much better, the sound is better too!

I spent the whole of Thursday afternoon setting up the 2 new tabs and clearing off my data from the Tab 2, so my brother won't have access to my password and stuff.

With all this excitement, I haven't really been exercising but I will exercise this evening. Watching Godzilla with my Dad on cable atm. I've been watching a Chiness series called Empress of China on my new Tab! I saw 3 episodes back to back during dialysis and I still had 57% battery power left! Isn't that cool?! Can you tell I m really happy with my tab?!

I will post agn later today to tell yous how the exercise went! Ta!

Hi all...
Mom went into rehab yesterday around 4pm. I hope she does well. I had the doctors take her off the narcotic pain meds a few days ago, as they were causing her lethargy and worsened confusion. Tylenol is managing her pain very well...so far. If she has worsened pain, we'll deal with that when the time comes. It's just awful to see her so drugged and confused and sleeping the days and nights away.

I am doing well. It's just tiring at times, the coming and going here and there and all the driving. DH vacation, I don't want to be that partie poopers person, so I am dealing with it all the best way I can. Meaning just going and doing. We'll be in CA at the other house for the next few days until the 17th, as I have pedal wedding for the 18th. I'm happy about that, to be able to meet up with old friends from the past. Mostly people I worked with for 24 years in aerospace. I'm still friends with many of them either phone or letters. Yeah, people still write letters! So it will be fun to see them as a group. They have a party planned for Tuesday next week and I am excited to be with the gang all together again. A couple of them who were older than me have died. So we'll be remembering them both.

ELAINE....I get it, that you think of when you are going to die. I'll tell you again, you have no idea WHEN you are going to die even with the KD. You just have to make the absolute best of life now, and live each day feeling happy that you are even alive and find the joys for each day as best you can and don't despair of the future and feel fearful. Do plan for your future though, to be ready for the if's and when's of life and death. I fear the day I lose my Mom too but we all have to deal with that as that is just the cycle of life. And like NellieC said, God does hear your prayers, even though you don't think He does. He does. Faith, slips now and then, doesn't it....it is up to you to keep the Faith in your God and find the strength and will to live your life and feel happiness too for each day you are alive. We all have to do it.

Mom is holding her own. Her WBC is back up to 19,000. Still has infection, they got back the culture and have changed her antibiotics, so hopefully the new abx will kick the infection for good. I sure hope so. My other sister I guess is flying there this morning. I'm not sure.

The wedding was nice, I got to see the video. The harp part is what I pay attention to mostly. I have a wedding to play on the 18th. I look forward. It's a more intimate gathering in a small church, so I won't have to use an amplifier. One less heavy thing to lug back and forth. I'm not going to the rehearsal either. Kind of nice, since I've played in that church before. So I know what to do and where I have to sit. The music is typical wedding march and recessional. I could play that in my sleep!

I'll tell you, there is nothing more wonderful than to play harp IN a church, due to the design of the building the sound is amazing! If that's what heaven sounds like to us harpists, I'll be happy there! It will be a pedal harp wedding. The one toward end of July is Celtic harp. Just a 64 lb difference. And I need a new wheel on my pedal harp guerney asap before it. IDK where to go for that, as it's the first time for that little problem. More phone calls to do.

I pray that your Mom will stick around longer, Phyllis! I pray that God will be kind to her and that she won't be in pain and that she will still have her physical and mental faculties.

I pray every night for my parents too, that they will be physical and mentally sound till the end of their days.

Sometimes when I think of my future, I get so scared because my future looks so bleak. I keep asking God why didn't He heal me, but that I have to be on dialysis. I just feel like I'm at a dead end and nothing can get better but can only get worse. Makes me feel so apprehensive about life in general.

I do pray for you Phyllis that your life will get better. I pray for myself and my family too. But I think God is not hearing me..........

Alexie, the other pedal harpist gave me a decent finder's fee for the wedding she played in my place. I gave her a finder's fee when I first met her, as I was happy to be her stand in at that wedding. I guess we're even now. Playing weddings are just so much fun! It's only 3 hours of time too, and you get the food which I don't usually eat because of food sensitivities. But, LOLZ. I have 3 or 4 weddings on the horizon for July, it will affect where we are at any point in time for vacation. Will be seeing son tomorrow as planned. I returned home this morning and slept a few hours and now I feel great and no pain either, but my neck was a little sore from the drive. I just gotta keep up with what I've been doing. Just got off phone with Mom, and she is talking good and tracking conversation well with a little prompt here and there. She sounds weak, but that is to be expected. She was laughing about the imaginary snow, and that's a good sign of humor returning, but the confusion is what worries me most.

NellieC, thank you! And please do keep my Mom in your prayer chain...I truly appreciate this as I know in the past, your prayers have been mighty! I think I prayed for Mom all the way back home whilst driving. I feel the terribleness of powerlessness and it doesn't feel too good. I am scared for Mom, as she is 88 now, and not as tough as she always was. I'm just now feeling her lack of the usual toughness she had, and I think that is why I feel more scared for Mom than ever before.

I did enjoy getting to see both sisters and both their kids too, especially the 3 week old, if only for a couple days, and when I can I will post the pictures. They all came. My other niece and her family will get there from Tennessee on the 7th, and will stay for 2 weeks. I feel kind of left out now. I only wish I could have seen both Marly and her newest son. He is now 3, where oh where does the time go? I might drive back up there while they are visiting IF I can convince DH since it is his vacation I'd be messing with.

Later tomorrow before leaving for GC, I'll pop back in for a bit, DH and I are now going out to a movie. I now have 18 movie tickets saved up from gifts from my son. He sent me 6 on Mother's Day for me and my Mother friends here, and a bag of Kona Espresso Beans from Hawaii. It's time to use them tickets up before I get even more....

Our packages arrived today, mine, my friend's and my Mom's. My Mom is happy with her handbag but then she just saw something better on the same site. Oh well!

I wasn't happy with my package though, think deception in advertising! I will have to be more careful in the future!

The starlight projector needs some assembly, hoping my Dad will help me!

I did call customer service to help resolve my issue with my package but I'm afraid it's the case of buyer beware! Sigh!

Actually he would do very well without my supervision, but the agency that employs him, requires me to be present - probably because others would not do well. There are plenty of substitutes I have had who do terribly even with supervision.

Whoa NELLIE! I have an album called Whoa Nelly! by Nelly Furtado. Going to listen to it tomorrow. I got physical things to do, orders. Good for you being there while your chore worker was there, it was probably more effective with supervision, as I am sure you know already. Some, are like children and must have guidance.......

Overall, you did better than me, my MD appt took nearly 2.25 hours even though it only takes 4 minutes to drive there. But she did keep me in the little room for 40 minutes talking, that is rare for MDs, most appts are less than 10 minutes. I think she is the smartest MD I've met yet, and that is saying a lot and we talk about everything professional and healthcare in general and she likes what I do.

After the usual drudgery of the typical stuff one does at an appt, we talked beans, how she cooks her black beans, and how I cook my black and pinto and other beans, etc. She told me what spices to use and veggies to use in my black beans. I'm going to try it for Mom's salad tomorrow, and I already picked up the stuff today. MD said to me, mmmmm, you do love your beans spicy! I laughed and said yeah I do! At the end of appt, she said I am doing swell and to keep it up. I like that!

My blood work was awesome, she feels the leukocytosis the past 3 years was because of the drugs for cholesterol, this lab my leukocyte count was only 33, but was 79 in 2012 and slowly over the years went back down. My cholesterol is only 174 but that is because of a very healthy diet and exercise, especially dance dvds, such fun!

I love my home cooked food! No restaurants for me either. I enjoy cooking healthy. DH loves it too.

Glad you took advantage of the cheap gas prices. Gotta do it when ya gotta do it.
I have gas for another month and my tank is full, it holds 35 gallons, I'll fill up when the time is right. It was only 2.43 for regular down the road today. It's the snowbirds. Gotta love it when they are here through October. Come winter, it'll get up to 2.99 to 3.10 a gal.

I went to a dental appointment earlier today. I got there and they said they were running an hour late. Since I was expecting my chore worker today, I told them I would go home and take a look at my calendar, give them a call so they could give me a new appointment. At least I got gas at the cheap gas station near them.

OKAY, where are you ladies? Elaine, speak up! Nellie wassup?

I went swimming after my hour of dance workout. Brazilian dance dvd. Surround sound was kicking screaming loud! I was feeling that beat and grooved my body to the music and coins a shaking! Got sweaty too. Sweating is healthy! Smooth skin and tiny pores results too.

Cooked a batch of very spicy hot pinto beans in pressure cooker, and whey protein Red Chili cornbread gluten free. Very easy and very healthy, spicy and makes you sweat when you eat it. DH loves it. You don't get tummy problems cooking with a pressure cooker. Gotta love that! For Mom, I'll do milder black beans for salad on Thursday day before travel. Lime and cilantro and veggie toppings. MAYBE sour cream. IDK, I don't usually eat dairy .

DH is coming up on vacation in a couple of days, a whole month long off work! I cannot wait because we are going to do good things together. I'm driving my Mom back to sister's house Weds night thru Thursday. I have a pedal harp wedding on Saturday up in surprise. I'll see my son and family after, we're meeting at the Grand Canyon Sunday for a few days. We're driving after the GCyn back down to New Mexico to meet up with DH brother and Jenna. We have a lot planned there including camping and fishing up at the lake in NM. We're also considering ending our vacation in Las Vegas, or possibly Reno to visit my best friend Kristin. Not sure about that yet. It's a driving vacation, but fun.

There will be Starbucks or ?? here and there for WiFi for my online stuff. I have many things to do to get ready. I just started our TO-DO list today after DH called and said vac was on. I don't like it when you get somewhere and you find you forgot something. I have a Master Travel List that I've added to for over 30 years. Preparedness!

EDIT, I forgot to say, I talked to Carol on phone, and her and Starr are doing well.

Elaine, no one really knows when one is to die, even with you on KD you don't know. I get it, why you think of those things as they are real issues for you. Be optimistic, get information for planning life after your parents are gone. That would be better than doing nothing. At least you'd know your options.

I went to the Gym this morning and had a great workout. I'm getting stronger by the day. It was hard because my neck has the pain, and was so stiff and sore, but I went anyways. I had to switch the expired credit card to the newly issued card. I certainly didn't want to lose my $4.00 a month dues, then end up paying 50 a month for a new membership! I've paid 4 a month since 91, back when it was named Family Fitness. I love 24 hour fitness gym. I've been going more regular these past few months too, and it's in my plan to go and planning is half the battle of winning.

I think, therefore I plan. I plan on doing writing later today after swimming. I love the pool in the summer here.

When I was a kid, I was spoilt. I used to hate my Mom but now, we are very close. That doesn't mean my parents don't drive me up the wall sometimes, they still do, but I've learnt to cherish them while I still can.

I worry that I won't be able to manage without them and I often pray to leave this world before they do so they won't worry abt me. But I guess that's not my decision to make but God's.

I made another smoothie today, carrot, pineapple, green apple, orange, ice cubes and water! Delish!

Elaine, it isn't your fault. It's the stalkers that are coming out of the woodwork and that is okay too as I just ignore them and soon, they will just go away and find someone else to stalk. They want to know who I am and where I live. They have no business here except to read what I have posted in the past. If they don't have a life and choose to do that, then I pity them. If I am their dinnertime conversation then they are pathetic as there is much more to life than reading about someone else. Maybe they don't have a life or friends and need others to feel alive? And if they know my tales of woe and call it drama, which really is the ups and downs of life, I don't really care because I live life WITH all the ups and downs and I survive nicely and enjoy my life too. The good times outweigh the bad times.

That is life, to have ups and downs. I have no room in my life for "perfect" people who are stalking me all the way from Texas. Hmmm, the only perfect being is God. Some think that when they are lying that God is carrying them and don't realize that it is really Satan who is carrying them.

Pitiful small people, I have no time for them.

I have a spot in the 2nd shift for about 4 to 6 weeks. This is because someone in the 2nd shift traded places with me for now because of work. I am very thankful for this and I hope I get to be in the 2nd shift permanently but it will have to depend on the situation. I pray that I will get this spot for real.

The only drawback is, my Mom says that the 2nd shift is kinda odd in timing and it interferes with her schedule. But I guess my Dad will be glad because he won't have to pick me up after work on most days I have dialysis. But maybe he still will have to if my Mom can't pick me up on those particular days.

I had a great workout on Thursday. I was procrastinating as usual but I told myself, that I have to workout! It was then 7pm. I popped in Julienne Hough's Cardio Ballroom DVD. Even though I can't dance as well as her, but I kept moving, and I was drenched with sweat at the end of the workout. The cold shower afterwards felt soooo good!

I'd like to apologize to Phyllis. I'm afraid it's my fault that the stalker found this team. I was posting in the Cafe inviting Chi owners to join up. I didn't know she was a liar and a stalker to boot! So sorry!

Oh, speaking of stalkers, did you know a met a weirdo in the supermarket. I was grocery shopping with my Mom. This guy kept chasing after me even though I was walking away. He even asked for my number, which I declined to give, then he offered his number, which I also declined to accept. I regret shaking his hand and I also regret not blowing him off when he tapped me on the shoulder twice! I should have just be firm and said I wasn't interested and for him to leave me alone! Oh, did I mention he has a stomach bigger than a fully pregnant lady! With such a physique, he dares pursue women?! What makes him think he can succeed when he looks like that!?

I'm still upset with myself for being too nice! Who knows what his intention was!

Good morning all. Happy Monday to all. Hopefully you're all happy and busy. We haven't heard from Elaine for a few days. She'll pop in soon I'm sure.

I feel good today, I had a good night's sleep and I am rested so it's a good start. I got my oil changed yesterday and it was a little dirty but "healthy" dirty. DH did it this time because of the oil type I wanted no other place carries it and 2 places wouldn't put my oil that I bought into it and wanted to use their own oil. Even though I told them I would pay them for their cheaper oil if only they would use mine. They wouldn't. So DH ended up doing it for me.

Hopefully I will be able to finish up a small project today. It's been on the back burner for the weekend. It's Monday, and that is my special day to do whatever I want. I will do project me.

I just got a new yarn winder again, never figured out what happened to mine. Now that I got a new one, I'll probably find the old one. Using one makes crocheting or knitting easier than pulling yarn from a skein which always tangles.

Paco has been sleeping in the living room. He is so funny. I tell him to come into bed and he stands and stares at me. Then I shut the door and just as soon as I get into bed, he pushes the door open and comes in. Then I have to get up and shut the door because I have the AC on. Too funny.

NELLIE, I posted the photo on the Team Stream. I'm sorry that we all get to deal with the drama because I made a valid complaint against a MD. I do know, that they are angry. The stalking issues are ongoing and really it is sad on their part, because it IS the MDs problem, not theirs. It is what it is. Pathetic group of people who do not know and cannot know real right from wrong. To call themselves a Christian goes against everything which I believe. To speak out against wrong IS what a Christian, a true Christian does do. I have done that, and now I am paying the price by dealing with the stalkers. Let them come and let them stalk me wherever, whenever, as I do not have any fear, as Christ IS at my side for I do live my life right and I do know what right and wrong is. They do not, but are only protecting their own, but the price they pay, will be what it will be and they will deserve what they get. I feel very sorry for them.

LOLZ, I just downloaded a photo of a monkey, and now I own one for myself and I named it too! Now I will have to join a monkey team and monkey around with people and tell lies. WDJD with liars?

Today, I mailed an important letter. Starbucks in PHX is awesome and cool too. 109 today. Lovely.

Illusion. There is an illusion here. It is a wolf in the sheep's clothing of a Christian. I find that abominable. I know she is here to only read the posts which I have written and really I don't care and she can read all she wants to read. She needs to go and go quickly. She lies and says she has a chihuahua and posted a FAKE picture on her page. But it is not her chihuahua, it is a picture of a chihuahua in a cup that has been circling the internet for many years and I first saw it over 5 years ago when Carol shared it and anyone can download it then post it ON their page and call it their little chi AND even lie and even give the dog a name. Some nerve she has! The fake picture has the words:

I sorry, I drank all your coffee.

There is no mention of her chi anywhere else on SP and her chi just magically appeared and was simply used as a convenience to join into our little team and to be accepted into the group, and even I welcomed her. I know who these people are and why they are here. They are not welcome here. I have reported this to SP. She has been here about 2 months on the team and done nothing, said nothing, except tell lies.

REAL chihuahua or any dog owner has posted REAL photos of their pets. You see, the one thing about owning a chihuahua, is that WE are proud of our little chi kids and we do show photos, real photos, not some fake a$$ photo downloaded from the internet.

She wanted to read my SP page, and she even had the nerve to private sparkmail me saying that MY page was blocked and she wanted to read my page. I still have the email and I turned it over to SP yesterday and I requested that SP remove her from the group, and they are investigating. So I requested she leave on her own. She is NOT welcome here, ever!

My page is private for a reason. She is one of the reasons. SHE needs to just go away and go away now. She is a - - - - Happy Face - - - - !!!

I have been starting earlier and finishing my dialysis earlier. I finished around 2pm today, made a smoothie with half an orange, 1 third of a carrot and a big slice of frozen lemon, 4 ice cubes and some water (otherwise the smoothie will be too thick), then I went for a 90 minute walk. After the walk, I was sweating quite profusely, don't know if it's the effort or the humidity, but it wasn't hot, there was a gentle breeze and it was cloudy.

When I got back, I had my dinner, which was prawn noodles. Yellow noodles and rice vermicelli with mung bean sprouts, water convulvus, small prawns in a prawn and pork broth. I put extra belacan in mine (belacan is a kind of Malaysian chilli paste).

Then, a cool, cool shower! So nice! If I'm not aching too much tomorrow, I will do another workout!

A spot opened up on the 2nd shift at the dialysis center. I am normally in the 3rd shift. But it is only for one month. So, for one month starting on this coming Friday, I will start and end dialysis early. I am stoked! It was nice of the nurses to give me the spot! Whenever a spot opens up on the 2nd shift, I am always the first one they call.

I have abt an hour to go, having dialysis now. I haven't been tracking my food as I should and I haven't been so consistent with the exercise either, gotta be more disciplined! No point beating myself up abt the past. Tracking today and I will exercise when I get home! I hope I will feel well enough to do so!

NELLIE,
I talked to my friend today, a dialysis nurse, she said they have accomodations for ileostomy people too. She said "We serve all people!" In her tagalog accent. She's Philippino, my best friend for many years. She's in Illinois now, I miss her here.

But you're right, cross it when you get there. No sense in bargaining with it now until you get to the store.

If I am awake I would be using my laptop most of the time. However, I need to empty my ileostomy bag every 2 hours. Of course, if they are willing to empty my bag for me, then the problem would be solved.

However, since I am not at the state where I need dialysis, I will cross that bridge when I get to it.

NELLIEC,
If you can't go 4 hours for the dialysis, then how would you manage the time spend while having dialysis?

ELAINE,
We really need to get to writing! I am finally coming to the end of my list of huge projects. I do have a few more on the way. Also, I got the textbooks we needed for the KD book. Time to stop yakking about it and just do it.

Ah! I'm dying or I was after that Tabata style workout! I found a whole bunch of them on youtube, under fitnessblender. Hopefully, it'll be the end of my bellyroll!

My Mom fried some tempura prawns for dinner today! Yummy but I can't eat them too often because they are battered and deep fried! My Mom went to this seafood wholesaler with her friends, so we've had salmon a few times now!

I just got my blender bottle! So I'll be whipping up smoothies more often now! I tried making a smoothie on Thursday. 2 tomatoes, a handful of wild cosmos leaves, 4 ice cubes and some water! Considering that's so little food, it was super filling!

I also bought some cheap sports bras, can't afford Nikes! Will let you know how I like them after the first wash. I bought 4 of them. I have worn 2 already. They are quite comfy buy I am not fussy over my bras because I am small busted! Hehe! I can get away with cheaper bras!

Well, gotta go to bed now, worship singing duty tmrw!

Since I have an ileostomy I can't go 4 hours. However, in my case it is OK to have more sodium since I actually require that for my ileostomy, as well as requiring more potassium.

make sure you go to the toilet b4 dialysis bcoz once you're hooked up u can't move for 4 hours. but if you insist u may have to settle for more saline in your body which isn't advisable. they will have to return your blood and hook you up again.
