Day 9
Sunday, August 24, 2014      1 comments

It turned out to be a very rough night last night. I thought I was tired enough to not take my restless leg meds. Big mistake. I did manage to fall asleep but woke up less than an hour later in such pain. Nothing could touch my legs. I rea... Read more
Day 8

Today was one of those good days. I did not however get any exercise in. But having made the decision to feed my parents healthier meals has given me a push in a positive direction. I don't know if my sad mood was because I felt so guil... Read more
Day 7

The back is better after some rest and so are the rest of my joints. I also have a very confused brain. Somewhere inside myself I just don't want to be the care giver of my parents. My 2nd husband died just 3 years ago after me being his only... Read more
Day 6

Had a really bad night last night. As far as my knees where concerned they didn't even want to be in the same county with each other. None of the normal things that help helped. No pillow between them, no change of beds or the couch or the ch... Read more

An at home roller coaster day. Started off feeling like I could conquer the world. But it fell apart after 2 hours. Managed to motivate myself into baking something. I have always loved baking but hated my kitchen. Now that it has been remo... Read more

What was supposed to be a good day at home working on recovery from my hoarding habit turned into a quick trip to my parents in order to take my mom to the doctor. The weather is hot and very humid so what does someone with COPD decide to do...... Read more

I got to stay home today. I was in my own house all day with almost no outside contact or influence. I slept most of the day. I went to bed last night about 11 and slept until just after 4 when I had to get up for the bathroom. Sad quietly a... Read more

It was a long day. About noon I did go to my parents house because my brother and his wife were down for the day. And for some reason they all seem to think since I'm alone I need to attend every tiny event that happens. So off to town I go to... Read more
Another New Beginning ?

I've just returned from a wonderful 2 weeks with my kids and grandkids. They live about 1600 miles from me. During those weeks I felt useful and wanted and even needed. But now that I'm back at home in charge of taking care of my aging parent... Read more
After the flood....

Well it is almost 2 weeks after the flood. My insurance company is not going to cover any damages because one of my 80 year old windows let water in. But I've decided I can live with that. It will not happen again because there will be a new ... Read more

It seems so weird when real life gets in the way of taking care of myself and doing the things I need to do for me to make me feel good. Today was one of those days. I spent most of last night up listening to the weather reports on the r... Read more

Why can't more days be like this one was today. The weather was nice and warm. I didn't get all my steps in but I did do the whole list of chores I set out to do. I also crochet on my little hat for kids project. (I'm crocheting hats for my ... Read more

Today I tried an odd experiment. I usually wear my fitbit on my sock and since I have limited mobility due to arthritis I do a lot of chair marching. I never sit still when I watch TV. I always keep my legs and sometimes my arms moving. Toda... Read more
The SLUG in me
Thursday, June 05, 2014      0 comments

The slug in me is learning that moving really helps the mood. For days I've been working really hard at moving my legs toward 12,000 steps. It has helped my mood a lot but when I look back at a couple of days recently that I only achieved 5,00... Read more

This last week I was able to do something I just love. Help a friend with her daughters graduation. I made 200 cake ball ice cream cones and only ate 1. But that wasn't the only thing that needed doing. I also drove my dad to a doctor's appt... Read more
