I don't drink coffee but my husband goes through two thermoses a day. I am glad you are doing the writing class. You do that so well and we all need to read the themes you write about.

Storm this morning with heavy rain and the streets were flooded. We went to breakfast and the to the grocery store. It is foggy and cooler.

today i will exercise inside. That has helped a lot. I need to do this at home too. I was doing so good until the house went up for sale. Then the extra stuff just piled on.

Enjoying today. No pressure

Watching the river sounds so peaceful.

I went to bed last night around 10 and was awake til past midnight. Then I awoke and thought it was after 5 am--almost 6 when I had to get up I fell back asleep and 20 minutes had passed. But when I zeroed in on the hour it was really 4 something. I was wide awake so I just got up. My thrid lesson for my grant writing class became available online at 3 am so I will do that next.

I have started eating less than 50 carbs a day. Sometimes none except in my veggies. I can't say I have lost any weight but I feel more energized. I believe that is why I need less sleep. I am not even drinking more than 1 cup of coffee a day. I can usually put a whole pot away in a day. AND I dont even want naps. And we all know I am famous for my 3 hour afternoon naps. Yesterday it didn't even cross my mind and I had lots of free time. But I felt so alert.

Tired and went to bed early. Well, I woke up at 3 am. Wide awake. Yesterday we didnít do much. Rested, took a nap, read a book. And did exercises.

Later today we go to a meeting here about the things this place offers. We have taken several tours. I enjoyed the one to Savasana.

Oh! My! That is a load of email. I have only a few minutes here to get on line.

The only break I get is to leave town and go someplace. I call it running away. Today we are stopping to visit a friend that I worked with. She and her children moved to Summerville SC. They lived in Pennsylvania not to far from us. I helped at a physical therapy place. I did clean up, set up, and fil report.. She was pregnant and needed help the other therapist there was alone when she delivered. I work about 4 months. The person they had before me had taken another job.
So driving again today but only about 5 hours.

I'm glad you are having a good time. Remember when I told you I was behind in my SP email and posting threads, messages boards? There were over 100 in my box when I went through it yesterday! That is an AWFUL lot.

Today is beautiful day.I have so much to do. CHurch starts in 40 minutes. I have to leave in 20ish. We are taking a controversial survey in church to see where the congregation stands on a recent denominational vote. We have to make a decision (unified decision) by 2024 if we want to remain in this denomination or keep our building and be something else. But to keep the building and be someone else we have some payments to catch up on. So we really need to know in the next 2 years where we stand. This survey is just the tip of the iceburg of work we have to do to see where we all stand and what we want the policies of our church to be.

I have a 2 hour window after sunday school and then I am meeting another lady wh is taking my grant writing class and we are going to work on it together until 4:15. Then I have to be home to heat my dinner then back at church by 530pm.

Either during the 2 hour window or tonight I have to come up with a budget outline for money I would like and also respond to my life coach.

I wish I was going to Hilton Head. I am tired just thinking about today. LOL

Prayers you have safe travels.

Friday the 13th and I started the day walking in the park across the street. It is a beautiful morning here in Myrtle Beach. Still some work to do here for our aunt to live safely.

Now....will we be hit by the storm forming now.

Today we go to get groceries to replace the things we threw out.. She has a hard time bringing in very many things. We also need to clean some more rooms. She has outside workers. She needs some inside help.

Another busy day.

Gregory-- good to see you on here.
Sue-- safe travels on your trp today.

I started my grant writing class yesterday. I got up at 12:05am because the online course was supposed to start at midnight. But alas. after 2 cups of coffe and logging in (after the coffee) I found out it was midnight PST. ugh. so I was up and awake til 2. slept til 3 when I could log in. I like the course so far. Its just the first lesson and I have learned so much.

A friend across the street lost her mother a week ago today. It was after 2 months of 5 hospitals one rehab and then finally hospice. I go see her daily and bring her food from church members. I am going to ask the pastor today if I can have her in to answer phones next week while I am there. I think it will get her out of herself and hopefully give her a boost that she matters to people. If she likes it we have 3 days a week that need afternoon phone coverage. It could be a way to give her purpose.

Sorry I have been off here. I am NOT kidding you. My email inbox daily has 90 emails every morning and that is after unsubscribing to like 15 last week. then my promotions box which is where most of SP lands up and about 6 other subscriptions has about that many built up in it. It will take me hours to go through and reply. So I just went to the subscriptions page on the start page of SP and and found the link that way.

Prayers for you both as this week starts to wrap up.

No word yet about the people that looked at the house yesterday. E May her today if they ar interested.

Thursday We are heading to Aunt Barbaraís in Myrtle Beach. She is 91 and still trying o live on her own. She is having more trouble ow with steps. This may be the year she moves to Asheville NC. She grew up there and knows people. Her son wanted her to move to Columbia Maryland. It is a hotel type facility for assisted living. She really didnít like that. We look forward to seeing her. She always has a to do list for us.

Today I have lunch with my daughter. Her church ladies get together once a month.
Prayers and blessings.

Good to see you Gregory
I get you now SUe about your age and moving. That makes good sense.

I am starting a new class today on grant writing.i was so excited that I woke up at midnight to see what it was about. I thought it said it was available online at 12am eastern time. I logged in only to find out that it starts at 12am PST. WHOOPS. Itsn ow 1249am and I am wide awake LOL

Tonight/last night I guess, in my women's group we were studying Spiritual Promotion. I just read a blog about that subject this week. I had never heard of it before. It seems the people who were promoted in the Bible were moved by their prayers to God. Praying is so important.

I am praying for you both.

Thank you for prayers. I have been reading a book on praying. My thoughts are that i need to pray for patience. We were so involved in getting things moved that it took up our life. I was not prepared for all th things that hit us this summer.

Today was a good day. i got my hair cut had some quiet time this afternoon. I made salads and Dave is putting in pizza tonight. It is good to sit a minute.

My husband and I get too busy. W take a break and go somewhere. We enjoy. time together.
Prayers for all.

Prayers especially for both of you, as I read your posts here I learned how to pray more intelligently. Not that God needs to be told what to do, just I wish to be in line with what you have released about your lives.

This weekend it seems that maybe my wife and me are back facing the right direction together. Together being the key word there. We'll see what happens each and every new moment, as we live our lives that way. Aren't you glad we don't have to answer for anything happening in the next moment?

We know we walk forward as reverse is impossible. None of us can live in the "previously", only the present. Thankfully we can encourage one another and then go comfort others as well.

Peace to both of you and those you love and rub elbows with during your walk.

What I meant was that my 81st birthday is in October. I want about 7 good years of health living by my daughter. I do not want her to have an old lady that needs help. But the 88 and up years are looking like more people have problems. My goal is to be strong and i told Katie, our little 7 year old grandniece, when she asked me to be at her graduation from high school that I would be there. l That would be when I am 93. emoticon

This past week I had no time to be online. The hacking of the email took hours to email and answer people. Today I am going back to head you blog. I can sit a while and really read it.

BLessings and prayers

Sue-- why did you say the years 89 on? You're not 88 are you? Because you dont act like it. I thought you were in your 70's.

I just got on here this morning to say hello. This has been a very long weekend. My leg is acting up again. I've got to get to physical therapy. I haven't been able to reach a living person in the office. It will happen though.

My friends mother died this week. She has NO support system and is walking through all the legal stuff alone. The least I can do is visit her daily and I have arranged for several casseroles to be brought to church for me to deliver. They wil put the food in individual servings in freezer bags so she can just pull one, heat it, and not worry about left overs or mold and rotten waste that she couldnt get to by herself in time.

my son moved stuff last weekend and has it half way put back. I am going to see about getting it all the way put back today. He seems to be ok with half our stuff in each room. But I want all my stuff in one room. Right now its in boxes and totes.

well I better get going my ride will be here in a coupe minutes to take me to church.
Have a blessed day SUe

Today was lots of small jobs. We leave for Aunt Barbaraís next Thursday. We didnít go
this spring. We take her shopping and I cook ahead things she likes. Meat loaves, meat balls, chicken, and freeze fresh vegetables in small amounts. Dave helps clean floors etc. She is 91 and lives alone. She has men to do the heavy outside work. Cut the grass, repair he porch, and move everything in if a storm comes. She evacuated for Dorian.

Then we go to Hilton Head for a week. That is my break. We go every year. This year we have had an extra week vacation when we went to the Pocono mountains.

So... my house has been cleaned through again. Everything is in order so if they show the house again. We are thinking if it doesnít sell by the end of this month we will stay here and take it off the market. Things moved to the other place do not need to come back. They can stay in storage until our permanent smaller house is put up. The email hacker stress took a toll. The work to keep up is tiring. But.... if we do end up at the in-law house it is comfortable and has enough kitchen equipment and dishes I wonít unpack my kitchen then until the new house. I do need my microwave cookware. It will need some work but the basement was the part that the family lived in before the upper part was built. So there is storage and things will be placed by room etc. (Christmas, kitchen, dining room, etc.) if we are here for the winter my decorating will be minimal. I have worried that my time might be up. I would like to live by my daughter at least a good 7 years. I donít know what the years 89 and on will be like. BUT.., God has a plan for me. Surviving the car crash brought that right up to face His power. Today I feel good and my energy is still there. I am slower.
Thank you for your support and concern. I appreciate you and your writings.
Prayers

I have had mine hacked. GOOD for you going and getting help with it. I need to be more careful.
I have a colleague at work who comes up with great passwords that include upper case, lower case, numbers and symbols. he made one for my work email I am going to ask him for another 2 or 3 for personal use.

I miss you Sue. How are you really doing? not just the 3 minute catch up for the day. How is your spirit doing? How is the move energizing or taking a toll? How are you and Dave doing with all this stress? Do you think you will move before winter? Or stay one more season of comfort.? Do not put yourself in an ity bity place without homey qualities for 6 months. DO NOT DO IT!
I am not your age. But a good friend just lost her mother of 67 years this week. That is 17 years from now for me.
If I thought I only had 17 years left, I would want my convenient but not burdensome space, with beauty and convenience. There are NEVER enough years to waste but after 50 we need to reprioritize our options. relatives are a must, being able to get places are a must,
keep up is a must, but everything afterthat is a wish. In other words dont put your self out into a small dwelling if you wont be comfortable this winter. You own you home. If moving makes it BETTER for you all around great. But if it is worse and the difference is they drive to you instead....let them drive. You need to relax and be stable and accessible at this point in your life. They can visit. But do NOT put yourslf in a smaller less desireable place. The truth is your familiy will or will not visit. Just see what You and Dave cando what is BEST and BLESSED for you. decide and do that until Spring

Back in routine. Music group is here today to set up the program for September and October.
I hope everyone can get here.

More has been packed and moved. Still no buyer. If it doesnít sell by the end of this month we may drop it until next spring. Winter is not a good time to move.

Sue- Your garden is beautiful!!

How was your day with your daughter?

I am glad snoopy did well...speaking of teeth pulled. I need ot have some exracted but it is going to take surgery. I don't want that!

Things have been going good. I had 3 nights of meetings this week. I do not necessarily like going out at night. Its not the weather since its not dark yet. It is just I am a homebody. But I am usually happy I went once it starts.

Then I have been spending time with Malcolm. He has been really depressed. But he has gotten better since I am spending time with him. I just think he is lonely since he lost his job...plus he doesn't have a daily schedule not moeny coming in. He really liked that job but it didn't work out because he got high before work one day and they figured it out. He said he would go out right away and get another job but he hasn't yet. My church asked him to work next Tuesday through Friday. He will make a little over $100. Which will help him save for something he wants.

I have a meeting today about jail ministry. we have 10 people coming to ask questions and learn from a lady who has many years doing it. Pray it goes well and that people want to do more and join in afterwards.

Snoopy is at the animal hospital today. He is having his teeth x-rayed. His gums get sore. They may extract teeth while he is there. I am concerned an hope he does well.

Today was a cooking day. Made a birthday cake for my daughter. Then made several meat loaves. I have the house open to get fresh air and it is so nice.

Prayers

I am trying to stay off sugar this week. It is hard because my husband really likes a sweet snack with his night pills. I am trying cottage cheese with craisins.

Today cooking and sewing and cleaning again. Always in case someone come to see the house.

Didn't sleep much last night...hoping it won't be an issue today. SOmetimes I get so tired that I just about fall asleep at the desk at work.

I made some cabbage and onion soup yesterday and I bought some chicken. I have to do a better job at controlling my sugar. Wish me luck.

I went through a review last week at church by my oversight committee. It went well. I got to see what was written up for me. Now I am coming up with a budget for things I want to do in the future for the community programs.

Yesterday we drove to Eckley, PA . We took the tour of the 1870 coal mining town. It was a lot of walking but very interesting. The town was refurbished by a movie company. They filmed Molly Maguire movie there.

We are back at the library agin.

I bet that was nice on the Delaware River.

Friday -- very unlike me, I went to a friends home and then to their pool in the complex to swim for the first time in 12 years. Unfortunately the pool was closed. So we went to lunch. Then I had a nap at home, then went to a nail party. My friend sells nail polish strips that get placed then rubbed down...put its a thin strip of real primer, polish and top layer and the SMELL like real polish. The strips stay on around 10 days to 2 weeks before its noticed they are growing or the polish at the top is rubbing down. I LOVE them.

Anyway a co-worker had the party and I wanted to support her.

Saturday -- I pulled out my schedule book. I made what seemed a long list. all to be done by tonight (2 days to do it) I have finished all but one item. I am very happy. It is the most productive I have been in weeks outside of work.

Today - since most of it was done, I slept a lot. THen this afternoon I got out the schedule book to finish up. I feel invigorated now to do more.

I am up on the scale by 7 lbs in 4days. HOW ??? I thought that was the number I would see at the doctor Wednesday because my jeans are barely fitting and I'm spilling over the top. But I was 204. That should not do that to my pants but I have noticed without walking I am more fleshy. but today I was 211. that was unexpected. Time to do more work on it.

The doctor is having me do blood work. She is unhappy about my A1C level and my daily pricks. I have to schedul the follow up because what they assigned won't work for me.

I hope you have a good Sunday!
Prayers for you.

Oh! My! Yes, prayers for them;

Dave got a good report from the contractor. He was very pleased with the work. It was more than he had expected.

Today my daughter picked me up and we went to her church ladies luncheon. My daughter had the day off We went to pick up some things and had a great visit.

Tonight i am packing and cleaning house to leave on Friday for the Pocono Mountain Villas for a week. This is our vacation. Dave is looking very tired and so am I. I have more cleaned out in the rooms and packed to go to the other house

I am so glad that helped. It takes a while to go away. I was not given any medication for it.

Prayers for you too.

I am truly grateful for a place to live today. One of our community friends that comes to dinners at our church, just got put out of her apartment today. she was caught out in the rain in her wheelchair. She and her 2 adult sons and one girlfriend are in a hotel for the next 2 days. I am going to try to find them a place to go tomorrow when I am at work. Please pray for Mary, Johnny, David, and David's gf that a door may open for them.

yes the pain was down the outside. there is a small pain in the crotch but its mostly outside and down the leg. I will massage and ice it today. THANK YOU

If the pain is from the hip down the outside of the leg it could be bursitis. You need to messag it. They suggested using a rolling pin up and down and across. Then ice the area. I have had that. If the pain was from the hip itself it would hurt in the crotch. If you have a save o pain save use that too.

Glad you are going to take the class

Hi SUE~
I cannot believe I haven't been on all week!

I am having hip pain. It started 2 months ago when I cross my ankles feet up on couch. Then quickly went to crossing my feet while sitting up. Now it is while I walk. The pain starts in teh left hip and runs down the side of my leg. I havent walked more that 3 miles all week.

I am a bit low too depression wise. Not terribly, but lacking motivation to do anything but be entertained. Every night I have watched at least 3 episodes of Madame Secretary of Designated Survivor. That is a LOT of tv for someone who usually has no time between reading my books to grow my faith or working weekly on my blog. I posted a blog today but I didnt write it. It is very good. Her point is that "it wasn't just that Sarah turned around and looked and became a pilar of salt for looking. Lot and Abraham watched the cities burn too. It was that she was pondering her former life in those wretched cities"

I had to list things I would do with money if it were to become available for my job. I don't want to ask for much nor do I know what it is best spent on right now and how to break that down. But I did ask to take some Grant Writing Classes. 3 classes for $299.00. It is a great deal. The pastor approed it before the committee gets together next and he paid for it on his own Church account. He sees the opportunity we would have if someone could write grants for our community projects. And I would love to help that. I start in Septemeber unless I change it to August 14-- next week. !! that just seems too soon.

My debit card got lost this week so I ordered a new one. It is coming today between 2:30 and 6:30. They said residential delivery stops at 3:00pm so hopefully that is when I will have it.

I want to have it by 5:15 so I can go to a get together at my Sunday School teachers home. I cannot leave until the card gets here. Malcolm will be at work and someone would FOR SURE take the envelope off the porch in our neighborhood.

Tomorrow I am going to see a local rendition of The MErchant of Venice. The family who had me over for Christmas are all in it. THe Grandma (my good friend), her son and daughter in law, and the oldest grandchild. Only granpa and6 year old are sitting this one out. I'm excited.

A Friend came to brunch. We had a great visit. She had her dog with her and the dog ran in our yard and just loved it.

Today I am not pushing to work on everything. I have dinner set up and that is all. This afternoon I am practicing the songs I play at the nursing homes. I can't believe how fast my fingers decide not to go to the right places.

I am rereading some of my church things and Kate's blogs. emoticon .

Bless you. This was a food week for me. Monday lunch with my daughter. Tuesday we had friends from Kiwanis here and it was coffee and goodies. taWednesday lunch with my friend Sandy and dinner with friends. Thursday the music picnic at one of the playerís home. Today it was coffee at Paneraís at 8:15 am. So....... my food plan was a disaster!! I need a plan like yours. I will think on this.

Today I packed a Linen closet that had all the winter bedding. Also throws for fall, Christmas, and spring. We sent Kiwanis picnic supplies to a. House for homelessness.

Good day but busy

Today is my "day off" but a contact from church set up an appointment for me with a director of an agency here in our town that not only provides our bus service but serveral grant operated resources for the poor. SO I will be going out there in just a little while.

Tomorrow I am supposed to work a bake sae in the morning and then go to a friends birthday swim party. It will just be ladies over 50 and one in her late 30"s. It should be a lot of fun.

Life has been kinda busy this week and it will be busy next week. I need to make a food plan for the week and stick to it. I have found myself eating unhealthy "just because I can" & " because I wanted to tune out" & because I wanted a treat since I was doing so much" NONE of these repeated patterns are good for weight loss. The thing is.. I had enough money last week t really stock the house with food for my son instead of one week at a time. While it has kept him from binging (because he see there will be plenty for a long time so he is not in a rush to get it all NOW) it has also left me with the ability to eat the wrong foods. And Its so much better when I live alone and just don't have those foods in my home.

I'm just going to have to make that food plan and practice self discipline and determination. OH ! HEY! I can use a reward!!! I have the perfect thing. I want to sign up with a coach that helps people discover their authentic voice. She is a friend of mine and said I could pay what I want and could afford. This would be great for my blog to turn it into a money maker and my church work. So the reward could be: If I stick to my food plan 80% of the time I can take the next month of coaching. Hey this just might work!

The Kiwanis boxes are gone. The trophies are stopill here. The suggestion was to take off the little plate and donate hem to a school. Other things were outdated and tossed.

My doctor gave me a clean report. No ribs broken but internal bruise. It will take time to go away.

Picnic today out at Bruceton Mills where one of the music players lives. I am taking Hobo Beans. I got up early to put them in the slow cooker.
