Got my car back from the shop. While in Florida, I got rear ended. They couldnít get me in to fix it in to me, so I told them I would get it fixed when I got home. The F 250 truck that hit me at the stop light, just punched a hole in the back bumper. The part that said ďMercuryĒ cost almost $300. At least the other guyís insurance covered it.

Working in the yard all week. I assigned zones to my flower bed and landscape. I will work on one zone a day. That way it should not be so overwhelming. Since I retired again, I have lots of time for the yard, landscape and housework.

Hope everyone has a good week.

Oh my goodness, I just lost a LONG post when the battery ran out on my laptop. I'll try to re-create it, but will keep it shorter.

emoticon Hello to all!!!

JANICE, SO glad you're back - we missed you!!! But awesome that you had so much fun with your Mom!!!
emoticon

ANNETTE, so glad you got to go to Myrtle Beach with your family. Sounds like a super trip!
emoticon

KATHRYN, I'm sure the scale will go back down for you. Walking, reading, and drinking water are all good things. I need to get out my coloring book - forgot I had it!
emoticon emoticon

SHEILA, I'm right there with you with anxiety. I'm scared a lot of the time and don't know why, but I do have several anxiety disorders - OCD, GAD, and social anxiety, so I understand how hard anxiety is. *I had to smile at the image of you holding Smokey while riding your bike. That should count as extra strength training!!!
emoticon emoticon

JANICE (IN), way to go on fixing your rider!!! emoticon

SPARKLING, you and your Mom look lovely and she's so cute in her red nose!!! emoticon


My physical therapist has added more exercise to my regimen. Three times a day, I have to walk up and down my driveway with my cane, then do all my bed exercises, then use a little bike peddler for 5 minutes. Then it's ice and elevate. Thanks to all this, I'm getting stronger all the time. I see the doctor tomorrow and get the stitches out.
emoticon

The sunshine just came out here - was looking like rain. I'm so glad to see it. Have a great day, everyone!!!!

emoticon Miller!!

Kathryn,
Sorry the scale is not being good to you, but, my scale must be talking to your scale....because it needs to go out the window too!!!!! Lately I feel low blood sugary after I swim, so I eat. When I vacume, so I eat, but low blood sugar tricks me when it could very well just be anxiety...that has been showing up everyday several times a day...i checked my blood a few times and it was 120...doctor said I should only feel yucky at 80....we will just blame everything on anxiety because my doctor does....i do not take meds except once in a while 1 mg no name ativan...but I rather not get hooked. My plan is to fight my way thru this yucky time so I can feel good again. I'm sure some of you are quite familiar with anxiety and how UNFUN it is!!! I usually don't share but I felt it may help someone else (I Hope)! emoticon
Kathryn your plan sounds great.....good luck!

emoticon Thanks everyone!

Miller I have been seeing the scale climb this last week so going to take long walks most everyday this week and fill up on ice water not food. In the evening I am watching to much TV with the adds that make me want to eat so going back to my reading. I have a big stack of books so no reason not to read. I will take breaks and color in my coloring book.

Hi everybody!

We were at Myrtle Beach last week. It was really nice. My parents have friends that let us use their condo right on the beach. My kids came too. Even though we live pretty close it's nice to get to spend that much time with everyone.

Janice, thank you for the goodie! It's so nice to know I'm remembered when I'm not around.

Good morning team, I'm BACK!!!

Had a wonderful time with my mom .......celebrating her birthday. She was surprised to see us pull in her driveway on her birthday. She was expecting us the next day. We didn't give her a chance to change sheets, grocery shop and worry about us!!! My mom is the sweetest!!

We played a card game I bought. 2 lies and 1 truth.....it was fun.

Went to Goodwill to shop the next morning. We did get some rain. So didn't get to hit the stores as much.

Went out to Olive Garden to celebrate her birthday with her "gift card" from my sister.

Now I need to get caught up on my Ebay shipping. Have about 11 packages to wrap up and ship out today.

Hope everyone is doing well and Enjoys their day!!!

Shelia shopping is always fun. The mirror at the Goodwill is one that makes you look slimmer than you are so I don't mind. It is kind of fun. I think next time I will take a photo of me in there.

My days are still scheduled around physical therapy. Three times a day and then I have to ice and rest and itís time to do it all again. Still, itís making me stronger every day!!! My physical therapist said my doctor will be pleased when I see him this coming week.

Itís still rainy here, but everything is lush and green and beautiful. Soon the fireflies will be back. I always look forward to that!!!

Hope everyone has a happy weekend!!! emoticon

Miller good to here you are doing your PT

Janice will have to see what you posted on EBay. Those brown cords have caught my eye.

IN Janice yard work is great exercise

I was wrong about the potluck last night it is not until next month. I felt so silly showing up with donuts. Oh well everyone enjoyed them.

No rain today or tomorrow. I will fertilize tomorrow. May have to mow first because the lawn looks shaggy. I will get in a lot of walking working on the lawn.

Glad that Miller is doing good after her surgery.

Have a good day everyone.

My post-surgical pain is not bad at all most of the time (I'm on pain meds), but doing physical therapy three times a day is very tough and very painful. I dread it all the time and hope it gets easier soon. It takes a lot out of me.

On Saturday, I couldnít get the push mower started. Used the rider mower and part way thru, the belt broke or slipped off the pullies. Sunday, I got the push mower started and finished the lawn in between rain showers. Will work on the rider today. I have a small subdivision size lot, about 1/3 acre, which I used the self propelled mower. Helps to use, but you still have to walk it. I was sore the rest of the night. Feeling better today.

Will try to apply the fertilizer/crabgrass preventer today. More walking but still exercise.

Hope everyone has a good Tuesday.

GOOD MORNING TEAM!!!!

Where is everyone????

Kathryn........Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day!! Isn't FB a great tool to get to reach one of our grandchildren/family.

I enjoyed shopping at Goodwill yesterday and found about 7 items to sell. Also went to Publix for groceries. Didn't buy a whole lot because we did some shopping at BJ's for food also. They have better prices with their eggs, bananas/tomotoes & bread.

Hope everyone ENJOYS their day!!

Thinking of YOU Miller!!!! emoticon

GOOD MORNING TEAM!!!

Hope everyone enjoyed your weekend!

We did a smaller walk on Saturday......hubby was not feeling so well. But he is much better today!

Yesterday had Archie's mom come from airport to pick him up. So she had her breakfast with us. Stayed and chatted for awhile. We will see him again on May 21st.

May 18th - 20th I'll be away..........visiting MOM!! Her birthday is the 18th.

Hope everyone enjoys their DAY!!! emoticon

Even if you are not a Mother......EVERYONE who is some type of Care-Giver will be Enjoying their Special Day!!!

Renia........So Sorry I've been getting your name wrong on the post! Sorry to hear all you went thru with DH in Hospital. It is always a lot of bureacracy wherever you go to get better. Hope things get better for you both. Today will be my rest day. Enjoy yours!

Janice......did you get your Yard mowed? How about the crabgrass preventer? We don't really have nice grass in our yard. So what ever grows Lee just uses the electric mower to cut what we do have.

Miller.........So HAPPY to hear from you. So nice Katie is there for you to help with the PT. Sending back big HUGS to YOU!!! Take care!!!

Kathryn.......We also went to the Dollar Tree store yesterday and found LOTS of great items. Even found a couple cute Flamingo's....plastic one for yard and a blinking necklace!! Your drink sounds delish! I wouldn't mind trying the Carmel Macchiato!!

Sheila..........Sounds like Pumpkin is one smart kitty!! Good you still got to swim!!! I'm also ready for summer.......shaved my legs yesterday! emoticon

Good to see you back, Miller. One day at a time, as with everything and you'll soon see and feel a difference.

Kathryn, coffee sounds good and that you got some 'me time'.

First thing this morning, it was a taxi to the local hospital for DH, Laurie, after over two days of diarrhoea. Oh, the bureaucracy!! Had to have guarantee of payment before they would even examine him. When we saw the final bill and paid for meds, it was less than the taxi fare, which was 800 rupees, about 11US$.... we would have agreed to pay that in cash had we known, as it's far less than the insurance excess... things only got moving after I had a slight meltdown and pointed to their mission statement and vision, clearly displayed in the main reception.

Back at the hotel and letting our blood pressure settle and on with a more relaxing day...

Have a soothing Sunday everyone!

Today was kinda chilly in the 50 range no sun, you know it is cold when Pumpkin kitty goes under the blanket on the couch....lol...

I swam even though it was busy and loud....later organized my clothes, so ready for summer.

Glad you got to go to your favorite place Kathryn.

Hope everyone has a great night.

I think we have my pain medicine on a stable schedule. DD has been helping me do the physical therapy since I can't lift my leg without assistance for now. It's hurts and it helps to have her there. Still, I'll be glad when I reach the point that I can do leg lifts, etc. by myself. Overall, I think I'm doing well and am grateful for that.

I'm not doing a lot of Sparking, but did want to touch base and leave a hug for all!!! Hope everyone has a happy weekend!!!

Supposed to rain today. I hope to get the yard mowed that I didnít get done the other day. Hope it doesnít rain until later so the yard will look nice. Need to put down crabgrass preventer also. If I can do this, it will be my exercise for this morning.

Well, as DH felt better, so it was my turn today to suffer, but I'm glad to say that mine was only for a few hours, while Laurie had his misfortune for over 30 hours... Both feeling better, but staying in the hotel environs tonight, just in case......
Instead admit though, I have enjoyed the bit of 'laziness', but now for a gentle workout, as yesterday was a rest day for me.

Had a day catching up on Spark, as DH is laid up with the runs, so needed to say in the hotel room, although we did nature by the pool late afternoon yesterday. The only thing he's had to eat is a handful of plain cashew nuts and some plain steamed rice, but still not good. Today, it looks like I'll be asking for a doctor, as itubeen about thirty hours now and the Imodium do not seem to have had any effect at all.
I had an exercise rest day, although I did do some yoga for my sgiff back and my physio exercises for my ankle ( broken last August but not healed properly).
I also started my third holiday read; I always bring 3-4 books on long trips as I love reading and it's the only time I really just sit back ( in the sun) for any length of time.
Hope you all have a sunny Saturday. Mine is set to be a quiet one.

I walked a bunch today!

I had coupons and shopped at Torrid and Kohls! I received coupons and Kohls cash for a future visit at cash out time!!! It was fun bought black farmers shorts, 4 shirts, and 4 dresses! Everything looked real cute on! I have not worn farmer jeans for many years (was too heavy) they look really adorable on!!!! That is incentive to remain healthy!!!!

I hope everyone had a great day!

My granddaughter has a dance recital on June 10th. Then on July 21, I fly to Reno NV for a National Convention. My brother lives in Reno and I havenít seen him in 4 years. Will spend some time with him.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

GOOD MORNING TEAM!!!

So GOOD to hear from you Miller!!! I'm hoping the dr can figure out some type of pain relief for you. I never liked the type of medication they gave me.....also had the same effect on me. Did you try the special patch they can give you for pain? that use to work for me. Keep at it!! and so HAPPY Randy and Katie are helping you at home! Stop by any time we LOVE hearing from you.

Also GOOD to hear from YOU renia!!! Enjoy Goa!!! Looks beautiful!!!

Kathryn........Glad you are back to moderation on your coffee......hard to quit on something you are use to having. But great you still have your green tea. Also that Ron is cutting back with his cups of coffee. How did he ever get to sleep with all that caffine?

Sheila...........I hope something will get done with the high cost of medications!! My hubby just got his medicare card in mail yesterday.....will start on Sept 1st!!! Yeah!!!

Sparkling.......How is your traveling going for you........ emoticon and all your beautiful pictures!!!

Janice............When will be your next trip?? I think you had mention about going to a convention?? I bet you are enjoying being back home!!!!

emoticon to all our other Members!!! Hope everyone enjoys their DAY!!! emoticon

Hi everyone. Not been posting the last couple of weeks as the internet here in Goa is lousy, so just tracking mainly. Hope you are all fine.

emoticon Hi to all. I've read all the posts and caught up on everyone's news.

Just wanted to let you know that surgery went well for me on Tuesday and I came home late on Wednesday. The pain medication they're giving me has caused nausea and hallucinations, so the doctor is trying to figure out what's best for me to take. I need to find something that works well and won't make me sick because PT is hard. The therapist came for the first time today! emoticon

Randy is off the rest of this week and I'm glad. He and Katie have been big help. emoticon

Thanks for the concern and support from all of you, too!!! emoticon
