LECATES, The eye lids are lightly bruised and they itch, with some pain included, but it's a good sign of healing. It's driving me crazy, but the doctor told me to take Benadryl, which I got some real good sleep. The eyes are looking less puffy and better looking. I'll post an after picture, when it's all over.

Keep saying I can do this!

DEB, DO THEY HURT? SURE THERE IS A LOT OF BRUISING.
NANCY, THAT WILL BE NICE IF ALL ARE GONE BEFORE THE ACTUAL DAY BUT SURE YOU WILL HAVE SOME LAST MINUTE STUFF TO PACK IN A BOX.
I FELL YESTERDAY AT CHURCH FROM A ROLLING CHAIR---BRUISED ONE SIDE OF MY TUSHIE AND SOME WHIPLASH IN THE LOWER BACK----AFTER A MISERABLE NIGHT, I GOT UP THIS MORNING AND TOOK A MUSCLE RELAXER---THEN SLEPT ALL MORNING DUE TO THAT---BUT DO FEEL BETTER NOW

SO FAR I HAVE NOT TAKEN KIRBY OVER,, HE IS BLACK AND I WANT TO KEEP HIM THAT WAY..

GOT QUITE A BIT DONE TODAY, STARTED BY GOING TO GET THE LAST OF THE PAINT.. I KNEW I WOULD NEED MORE PRIMER AS NONE OF THE DOORS OR DOOR FRAMES HAD BEEN PAINTED AND THERE WAS VERY LITTLE PRIMER LEFT) MY GRAND DAUGHTER PAINTED ALL THE FRAMES AND THE EDGE OF THE DESIGNS WITH A BRUSH AND I DID THE REST WITH A ROLLER,, NOT ALL EVERYTHING HAS HAD PRIMER, WHILE SHE WAS DOING THE FRAME, I WAS UNPACKING..WHEN MY DAUGHTER AND SON IN LAW CAME IN I UNPACKED THOSE BOXES TOO

WHAT DO YOU ANSWER WHEN YOU ARE ASKED A STUPID QUESTION? HOW MANY BOXES WILL YOU HAVE ON THE 19th WHEN THE MOVERS COME FOR THE FURNITURE????? DAHHHHHHHHHH HOW THE HECK DO I KNOW.. SO SHE ANSWERED SHE WAS TRYING TO FIGURE HOW MANY TRAILERS AND CARS THEY WILL NEED TO MOVE THEM.. MY ELDEST DAUGHTER ANSWERED WELL "PROBABLY NONE AS THEY WILL ALL HAVE BEEN TAKEN OVER AND PLACED" SHE WAS NOT IMPRESSED WITH HER SISTER.

AS SHE BROUGHT ME HOME WE LOADED UP THE VAN AGAIN AND HER HUBBY WILL EMPTY IT TOMORROW..

WHEN I GOT BACK FROM WALKING KIRBY,,I SOAKED IN THE BATH AND NOW I AM GOING TO SIT WITH MY FEET UP

TAKE CARE ALL AND OH YES,, MORE WHITE GROUND COVER COMING OUR WAY emoticon

LECATES, I'm sure glad I took two weeks off, my eyelids are not good to look at right now. They are healing, but what a terrible sight!

My husband had planted okra last week and they are all coming up! We have tomatoes and squash also growing indoors; Still too cold for going outside.

Keep saying I can do this!

ROSES, HOPE THEY CAN HELP YOU
NANCY, YEP, THE PROCESS OF PACKING UP IS A PIA---AND LIVING WITH BOXES AROUND YOU CAN BE ANNOYING. HOW IS THE DOG HANDLING ALL THIS CHANGE?
WALKING THIS MORNING AT THE MALL DUE TO THE RAIN---AT LEAST IT IS WARMER AND NOT WHITE---WE WOULD BE HAVING A WHOLE LOT IF IT WAS THE WHITE STUFF. HAVE A GOOD DAY!

Well we are going to have rain all the way to Monday, which is good for me, since I had my operation yesterday. That will keep me in bed for sure, with some walking around the house. I can't believe the snow reports from everyone, but rain is no better either.

I had written a reply commenting on several comments and lost the message .... aghhhhhh I'll try again but won't go back and forth checking who said what this time.

Nancy - I too hope we are soon to get spring. It's to be raining on the weekend here so maybe some of the snow will get washed away. Then it's to be 9F on Monday! It got up to 0F today. You must have a ton of stuff to be moved to be moving so many boxes so far before the actual moving date. I've always wanted a month to do a move taking my time putting things where I want them or decorating or whatever. Enjoy your move and as others have said don't trip over any boxes.

Lecates - I won't say enjoy your trip to the Holocaust Museum. I couldn't make it through a small one we went to when in Holland. By the time I was only a short part way thru I could hold my tears no longer and by the time I got out I was sobbing. How anyone can commit such atrocities. Dunn of the former duo Brooks and Dunn was singing on the radio when I was coming home from the dentist's office his song "We All Bleed Red." It says it all.

Kimberlee - take the bifocals slow and easy. They are better than the alternative but I found them difficult to adjust to. Be careful on the stairs.

I ordered some books published by the magazine Garden Gate (love that magazine) and they arrived the other day - 4 of them - Perfect Perennials, Container Gardening, Flowers for Summer and Blazing Fall Colour. I also picked up a free book on Container Gardening and a copy of an early magazine edition when I signed up for a new magazine called Garden Making about Ontario gardens - that's a first - we usually have to make adjustments to books made in the UK or the US because they usually talk about different zones than we live in. Like so many others who no longer work outside the home, I never seem to have time to do as much reading as I'd like - I'm so dang busy! How did I ever find the time to work!

LECATES: THE KITCHEN BECAUSE HE & I ENJOYED COOKING TOGETHER, AS WELL AS EATING. I BOUGHT A BRAND NEW BED FRAME (I NORMALLY BY 2ND HAND STUFF) & NEW BEDDING. PLUS, I AM GOING TO PAINT AN ACCENT WALL & HAVE 2 SMALL CHAIRS REUPHOLSTERED. I GOT NEW BEDDING FOR THE SPARE ROOM & PAINT FOR AN ACCENT WALL IN THERE TOO. I'M PAINTING ALL THE DOORS WHITE & THE DINGY, DARK KITCHEN CABINETS. REARRANGE SOME FURNITURE, ETC.

WENT TO GET MY EYE EXAM, BECAUSE I'VE BEEN HAVING TROUBLE SEEING TO THE POINT OF ALMOST FAILING MY EYE TEST FOR THE DRIVER'S LICENSE. THERE WAS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN MY RIGHT EYE & NEEDING BIFOCAL LENSES. I'M ACTUALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO BIFOCALS *SNORT LAUGHS*.

JUST CHECKING IN. AM DOING OK. DOING MY COPING SKILLS CLASS 9A-2P M-F FOR AT LEASE 2 MORE WEEKS. ALSO DOING SUPPORT GROUPS IN THE EVENING M, TU, & TH., COUNSELING ONCE A WEEK. JUST TRYING TO STAY BUSY. TOO BUSY TO BE STUCK IN MY HEAD. BOUGHT SOME PAINT & AM GOING TO RECLAIM MY HOME & PURGE THE EX FROM IT. I AM ABLE TO EAT A LITTLE, BUT JUST NOT AT HOME. I CRY IF I SPEND ANY TIME IN THE KITCHEN, MASTER BEDROOM, & EVEN THE GROCERY STORES. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT I'VE LOST 30 LBS. THE BAD NEWS IS I'VE DONE IT IN ABOUT 3-4 WEEKS. EVERYONE STAY SAFE & HEALTHY (AS BEST YOU CAN).

I Thank you all for your support, I appreciate that a lot. I've heard promising news from others that have had this surgery and they have said they were very happy on the outcome.

I hope the weather starts getting better for everyone, so we all can start warming up. It's hard to hold back on my Spring Fever, especially when you hear the birds chirping and the flowers blooming.

Take Care All,
Deb

Keep saying I can do this!

KSGAMMA, I inherited genetically from my dad, a problem where the skin hangs almost over the eyelash. There's days where at the end of the day, where my sight becomes blurry and I have to take my glasses off. I'm very excited to have the surgery, and maybe I'll look happier than tired looking.

Just another note, we had another gorgeous day, and I got more weeding done. Rain will be coming tomorrow.

Hi Lottie,
Sorry to hear about your back, I hope the doctor can help you soon.

The weather this last week has been real cold and freezing the ground for the last few days. Today it was beautiful and I spent weeding pretty much all day. I'm pushing to get as much weeding done this weekend, due to my eye lid surgery is coming up this Thursday. I hope after a week I'll be able to be active, so I don't gain. I just got back from vacation and I gained all that I lost.

Anyway take care,
Deb

SORRY I HAVEN'T BEEN ON BUT I NOW KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY BACK. I HAVE ANOTHER RUPTURED DISC. THEY ARE SENDING ME TO DUKE. HOPEFULLY THEY CAN DO SOMETHING WITH IT. HAD TO GIVE MY JOB UP AS I CAN'T DO IT ANY MORE. OTHER THAN THAT EVERYTHING HAS BEEN PRETTY GOOD. THE WEATHER IS GORGEOUS BUT WE ARE IN FOR SOME CHANGES NEXT WEEK. SUPPOSED TO GET A LOT COOLER.

we are to get 1-16 cm of snow over night and tomorrow morning. My daughter and I are planning on going to the Canada Blooms huge garden show in Toronto - weather permitting. We are to meet my sister there who lives in Oakville. There is an even larger home show attached to it but there's no way I can manage both. I'm taking a book in case the others want to do the home show while I sit it out.
