That's great surprise JS! I guess it's being thankful for the storm!
I am so glad it's Friday!
My coyote woke me up at 4 this morning wanting out and I thought "I get to sleep in this morning It's Saturday YA!" Then reality kicked in and I remembered it's still Friday! GROAN! LOL

We had a windy night! Last night, we had a wicked wind storm. Our power went out at about 11 pm, and we had no lights until morning. We just rolled over, and tried to sleep as we listened to the wind howling in the trees. There was more trying and not much sleeping through the storm. At about 3, I heard chain saws, and got up. The lights at the far end of our driveway looked like big trucks. So, John and I got dressed, and went for an early morning walk. What we saw was a wonderful surprise!
The Electric Company had driven by, and saw a tree on the electric wire just off the main road, and in our driveway. They removed the tree, cut up the wood and cleared our driveway with the wood on the edge of our yard.
This has been a long winter, and we needed more wood. What a wonderful gift to get after a terrible night's sleep! We have enough wood to last until the warm weather gets here. We are ready for warmer days, but until then, we have more wood to keep the house warm.

Need to get well so I can get the broken bridgework done at the dentist and not happy about the amount I have to pay as up there but what can you do?

So glad to hear you're doing so much better JM!

There we go. A good night's sleep, still up at 6:00 Slept in! But now I've sent dad his Easter letter and already have a few things accomplished including having had breakfast. Not sure what Walt would like for an Easter dinner. Haven't really anything special planned.

Happy Easter everyone!

Thanks everyone and Happy Easter! SP keeps freezing up on me today.

I am doing well. I was really tired yesterday though, I went to bed at 7:30 PM. We both got off work at the same time around 5 pm yesterday, and we are both working in the same strip mall at different companies now. So we both headed for different banks to cash paychecks, and then met back up at home. The bf picked up take out hamburgers on his way back. We ate them and watched some TV on Amazon. I kept falling asleep shortly after eating. I couldn't even stay awake to watch the one TV show. He was tired too, so we just turned the TV off and went to bed.

I got to try to sleep in this morning, while he got up at 5:30 am to go to work again. Was tired but kept waking up every couple hours needing to pee and or to sip some water. I am drinking tons of water during the day, but still waking up every so often during the nights feeling thirsty and or needing to pee. That is the worse symptom that I have now. No more really painful attacks since the first two on the 15th and 20th.

All my best always. Janette

hey all,
Everybody enjoying their Easter Weekend?
Yesterday was a GOOD day out! My friend Leslie and I went to Red Deer, took in a movie, hit Costco, met up with my BFF and had supper at the Pheonix Buffett.

Just as we came out of the theatre I got a text from Walt "Toilet died" So back into Costco and came out with a 100.00 unit that saves on water, has the dual flush so no more chain and plunger ordeals!
Byt the time I got it home, Walt had the old one out and waiting for the new one!
That's MY Man!

Today I'm working on my computer! Going in doing a major clean up; getting rid of programs I don't need or use, transferring files to an external 1 tr purchased yesterday Plus creating backups on USB storage sticks.
But right now, I am making Walt his lunch and having something myself.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

Thanks Ladies! NOMORESTALLING, that just happens to be the first website that I went to when I was told I had to go on this diet. She has a lot of helpful info.

I started making myself overnight oatmeal. It really threw me that really healthy cereal is high in it, and sugary kid stuff is being recommended. Especially since too much sugar and salt is an issue with it too. I was really hungry last week, but hardly had any appetite the last two days. Maybe it has to do with what my body is going through?

I just found out today that I have an enlarged right kidney. They didn’t say that they saw any kidney stones or not. Just that my one kidney is enlarged and that I still have gallstones too. I had the gallstones for about 8 years, and no real issue with them, expect that my liver was also enlarged and they thought it was partly due to the gallstones. They told me about the gallstones and liver yrs ago. So I will probably be going to more specialist and having more tests soon. I will try to keep up with logging in here, but if I miss, it is because work is busy and I am dealing with health issues at the same time. But I will be here as much as possible. Have a great night! Janette

JM sorry to hear about the kidney. My brother had a kidney out with cancer and my mother died of kidney cancer so I also worry about it but so far am ok.

I have the problem with potassium and magnesium as I am 4.9 on the potassium and 5.l is bad.
Magnesium I am 2 pts over.

I find a lot of stuff has a lot of both and I have been eating them so like you I am watching.

Marian, I am washing clothes, sheets, making beds so far and then off to lunch as dh turns 8l today.

Hi JM Wow
Once the kidney stone has been dealt with I'm supposing they will have you on a specific diet for preventative?
Take a look at this. Actually, it wouldn't hurt every last one of us to take a look at this.

Good morning everyone!
It's a brisk clear sky day starting out here in Coronation AB. And I'm ready to begin my work day.
It's only a 4 day week for me. YEAH! Looking forward to a long weekend!
Catch ya's later!

Sorry I have been MIA again, I had another attack and now they think it is kidney stones. I went for an abdominal ultra sound Friday. I had to change my diet all around again too.

I am really missing my spinach, my trail mix, my dried fruits, my Kashi Go Lean cereal, potatoes, Sweet potatoes, and more. They are all too high in Oxalate. I would really have to just have a really small amount of it, and also not combine other high things with it.

Most people consume 200-300 mg of oxalate a day, I am supposed to aim for under 100 mg, and around 50 mg is even better. So I had to really change up what I am eating. I totally gave up my trail mix, spinach, Kashi GO Lean and other stuff for now. I will have to finally break down and buy a food scale that can measure grams, ounces, pounds and such for me so I can try to figure out how I can safely add those high things back in once in a while. Since like just one avocado is about 19 mg, an orange is about 29 mg, a half cup of cooked spinach is 755 mg, raw spinach is 656 mg, 1 ounce of trail mix is about 15 mg. I am trying to stay around 50 mg, and my Kashi Go Lean cereal is about 14 mg for just 3/4 a cup. And I usually had a half a cup to a cup a day of it, and trail mix I usually had 1/4 to a 1/2 a cup a day. So that would wipe out all my servings before I even got to dinner.

Last week I stole the kids fruit loops as it is only about 2 mg for a cup, and skipped all my usual high level stuff. A cup of oatmeal has zero, so last night I tried making overnight oatmeal for the first time. I just put a cup of oats, water and a little strawberry yogurt together, with some cinnamon and sugar. And it was okay. I think I will try it again tonight and just leave the sugar and cinnamon out, I might add some honey to it or not, and see how that goes for tomorrow. At least this way I don't have to spend a lot of time cooking it in the morning. And I can just make it in my bullet containers with a lid on it so I can even take it to work, and can make several ahead of time. So I think I have the morning figured out with something healthier than fruit loops, LOL. Still have to come up with another healthy afternoon snack at work. I had corn chips the last two days instead of my trail mix, but that just doesn't seem that healthy to me, even though it is a lot less MG than the trail mix. I need to find something that is not messy to eat at my desk and not high in the MG. Still thinking about that one. Even carrots are in my "Limit" list. So many healthy thing that I would go with are on my "forget it" or "limit It' lists. And depending on what website you are looking at or what expert you are reading from there are a lot of contradictions! A lot of the sites say no cranberries for say and others say to go ahead and eat dried cranberries as a snack. So it is confusing!
Have a great evening and new week! Janette

LPorter, it is good you have a positive attitude. I had to have one when I had breast cancer 5 years ago. Each year as I go for my mamo I worry about it coming back. Sometimes, so hard to be positive if you are a worrier.

Have a lot accomplished both work and "play"
yeah because it's a four day week next week with Good Friday off I put in the extra time to send out the extra e-mails for our next promotion so that come Monday morning I can follow up with the phone calls.
Saturday cleaning "play" LOL is slowly progressing today. Still getting it accomplished in between breaks from work.
The temperatures have warmed up and it's melting but it's cloudy out.
Walt's busy with little things around the house that need doing. He's just returned from filling up gas cans for the new generator. He wants to set it up and get it running for a test run now that the wiring is done.
So I'd better cut this short before he cuts the power on me LOL

P.S LPORTER2015 With the exception of growing older I already have an amazing life!

Marian thank you for keeping your snow up there as we only got 2 inches instead of l2 because of Canada's weather coming our way. We rather have Florida, thank you.

Yes, you are deserving of an amazing life. What are you doing to get it?

And I'm glad I got done this week as focused. New Brunswick nor'easter hit during the night. Spring is NOT coming in like a lamb! So I'm very happy to have to stay tucked behind my desk and make calls and texts to follow up today!

Hey everybody,

This girl is one very tired lady. Another long day out on the road. It's winding down but I have at least 2 more weeks of this.
Home now hitting the shower grabbing supper and crashing.

You got that right. When you do not have hope you have despair and depression. With hope you have dreams. With God you have Hope.

When being a writer you have hope a publisher will like your work.
When times get tough you have hope they will get better.
When you have cancer you hope you will get well.

Speaking of cancer I am cancer free for 5 years so far and threat going for mamo in April hoping no cancer has come back.

Hope is the anchor of our soul. If we don't have genuine hope, our faith will fail. Faith works by love. Bad decisions are made by people who feel hopeless and live faithlessly.
LPORTER2015, we need to live with faith and hope, motivated by love!

Yesterday, I wished for HOPE...Sometimes we just have to want to move from our comfort zone in order to find something BIGGER, something GREATER! My HOPE for today is to find what is meant for ME in the near future!

What did you wish for?

I wish we did not get the Northeaster that is coming today.

Wishing you luck.

Stop sending the snow here. I heard Canada is the cause of our cold weather. We want it from the South. LOL

Yeah the date of Spring has arrived I wish now she herself would arrive. The temperatures are warming up but not enough to melt the snow I'm still getting frosted windows on the car and have to run it a half hour to defrost and warm up UGH!

Off and running today Off to Provost for Community Tourist Magazine bookings! Wish me luck!

Elf glad you got some stuff done about the robbery. Good thing to change the keys.

LPorter, are you a writer?

I had my cell phone with me and keys. I don't have many cards or anything so it was a hassle but was able to get them all cancelled. Already have one replacement. Now just dealing with the insurance and seeing if possibly getting the car lock/key changed since whoever still has the one key. My belongings weren't worth enough to cost more than the deductible. Have to get to the dmv and such too. Just a lot of hassle but could have been worse.

Not writing much right now. Busy with work and this mess.

Elf so sorry to hear the bad news.
When we were first married our car was stolen too. DH was at college and when he came out of school the car was gone. When they found it the car was a total wreck inside so we had to get rid of it. Hope your claim comes through quickly. I would call the companies for your credit cards so they can cancel the old number. How about your cell phone? Was that ok?

Yes, Jackie and any other recipes on the receipt page would be nice.

I haven't been around lately. Between work, gym and such, it has been hard to do much online and I've had some slight struggles emotionally. And not to go into the long story but a few days ago I had stuff stolen, which for a few hours included my car. So, I've been dealing with the aftermath of that. I wasn't in any danger, no worries there, just have to deal with the few credit cards and such plus some of my belongings I no longer have. Now waiting for the claim to be handled and still dealing with work. Haven't written much.

Hope everyone else is doing well.
