Day 4
Monday, August 18, 2014      0 comments

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
Day 3 of the New Beginning
Sunday, August 17, 2014      0 comments

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
Day 2 of the New Beginning
Saturday, August 16, 2014      0 comments

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 ?
Friday, August 15, 2014      0 comments

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....
Saturday, July 05, 2014      0 comments

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
There are days.....

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
Experiments
Monday, June 09, 2014      1 comments

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
Walking thru the pain
Sunday, May 11, 2014      1 comments

Most days I can put in a good solid 2 hours of dancing or chair marching with only minor knee pain and then there are days like today. On the scale from one to ten the pain isn't that bad when you sit fairly still or only walk for short distanc... Read more

Yesterday I woke up raring to go. I had all my Suzy Homemaker chores done by 10 am and my exercise video. I sat down to finish the baby blanket I'm crocheting for a friend and worked on that about an hour. Even did some work on a cookbook for... Read more
Lesson Learned
Monday, April 28, 2014      2 comments

I usually post my day and challenge results late in the evening. But last night due to a storm I was not able to use the internet. That means a 70+ day Spark run ended. Makes me sad. Oh well off to at least spinning the wheel earlier in the ... Read more
The littlest things ....

Early last week my Sirius radio quit working. I thought I must have not paid for my subscription. So I waited until I got paid and tried to pay today. I found out I was paid up but last week when the ISP did some work I needed to reboot the r... Read more
Easter Sunday with Blessings
Sunday, April 20, 2014      0 comments

It was a long day but a good one. I'm alone so much of the time I forget what it feels like to be in a house full of people. Drove my parents to my brothers about 1 1/2 hours away so they could see those great grandkids for Easter. My b... Read more
