Ali - Lily played as Tim McGee's grandmother on NCIS about a year or two ago. I was pleasantly surprised to see her - the part fit her well.

Ques - glad you had fun at the wedding. I'll definitely help encourage you - that's what it's all about, helping each other. The ladies on here have helped me plenty! Good job getting back on track.

1 - Hope your dentist appt. goes well and Jason's visit to the surgeon. It sounds like your Mom is enjoying the new puzzles! Yay!

Not much going on here. Just wishing everyone a very happy Tuesday.

Tuesday – good day. I am really finding that going out for my early morning walk is helping me tremendously.

Mom got a few new puzzles, so was busy putting together one of the new ones. She is really good at it.

That’s about all the news that’s fit to print from here.

Wow - good memory 1. Those were just a little before me however as I have older siblings I do actually remember a couple and we used to watch reruns of the honeymooners when I was in college (it was a retro thing to do). I don't think my mom let us watch the show when it was out on tv as an original series as she 'didn't approve' of 'that show' ;) I have a vague memory of Car 54 but better recall of Father knows best.... what I really remember of that era is the console tv that had one remote and that was me! Dad would say change the channel and wow we had a whopper three to choose from!!! No wonder my mom gets confused with the 4 remotes it takes to use my dvr system - even with a universal control as she hits buttons and changes things I can't even find if I wanted to.
Hope today went well and good luck on those upcoming appointments. Is your dad just visiting or finalizing things while back in IL? Hope mom has a good day while he is away - has the idea of a separate condo taken a back burner - I hope?

Ali - So glad you are getting away for a mini trip - hope there is a camp fire involved. Well if you have the pool clean you just need some warm weather and that can be a get away all in itself - pool party!!!

So the good news was that even with all the indulgences of food and beverages the evening walks and long bike ride kept my weight in pretty good check (only .8# weight gain). Was back on track with exercise this evening with my new goals in mind.

Have a great Tuesday as it is not that many hours away.

Yes, Clutch Cargo was a cartoon, but it was weird. The mouth was a PERSONS mouth saying the words but everything else was a cartoon . . . . and his pals Spinner and Paddlefoot! Then of course, there was Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Those were the days.

1: yep, Edith, she was so cute, well the character was. *hugs* Strawberry festival sounds amazing, hope the weather was good for it and that you had a great time! We were so busy this weekend with so much going on! The grad party was wonderful, though! Glad to hear you were able to take your parents out for supper, too on Sunday, Wonderful! Oh my gosh, I remember Sheri Lewis, and Sky King, Ted Mack Amateur Hour, Father Knows Best, Car 54, The Honeymooners..all great shows. I'm not sure about Clutch Cargo, was that a cartoon? Seems like I did see that , but I thought it was a cartoon. May be thinking of something else. Good luck with the Dentis. Hope Jason has good luck with the Surgeon.

MPotter, it's nice to do some cleaning and all you sound like you got a lot accomplished! I did a lot of cleaning and washing, too on Sunday, and cleaned the pool, too. Didn't rain much here over the weekend, but today it has. Don't need anymore of that stuff, it can stop any time.

Zak: I loved Lily Tomlin, haven't heard from her in a long time, I miss the old comedians. The Graduation party was wonderful, I had such a good time. I know the sense of accomplishment once you finish the work, is so amazing, then to relax after..ahhhh.

Ques: So glad you had a great time at the wedding, aren't they fun to go to, and see how beautiful everything is. I'm so happy you had a good time!! I loved the Carol Burnett, so funny!

We're going away Thursday and not returning until Sunday (another mini-vacation, thank goodness.) I hope you all have a wonderful Monday, leaving hugs for you all!

Ques: Ok, here's a few for you . . . . do you remember SKY KING, CLUTCH CARGO, Sheri Lewis, The Ted Mack Amateur Hour, Father Knows Best, Car 54 Where Are You, The Honeymooners.

Have a good Monday, everyone

Monday – another really beautiful day. Didn’t get to relax a lot, but supper was easy-peasy. Had hamburgers, Mom wanted French Fries, and corn on the cob. I had my spinach salad. That is oh so good w/strawberries.

Otherwise, it’s the beginning of a busy week. Wednesday dental appointment, Thursday Dad is going to IL so I’ll have Mom, and Friday Jason sees the surgeon. So, better get my sleep NOW.

Have a good Monday.

So this will age me but I totally remember Lily Tomlin from the Carol Burnett show and the different characters that the guests and regulars played ... a good walk down memory lane.

Wonderful wonderful wedding (say that fast ;)

Got my end of July updates done for new goals (old ticker expired with nieces wedding this weekend). Gave myself a big weight loss challenge so will need to kick butt so to speak to get this one accomplished. Zak - expecting you to keep me on task and looking for all those tricks that those of you have used to accomplish your weight loss goals.

Lets have a great segue to July,

Lily Tomlin is a hoot, she is so funny.

1 - I hope you enjoy the strawberry fest (but not to much *L*) Glad to hear you've had a few good days with the parents.

Ali - I hope you enjoy the graduation, it sounds like a fun time.

Ques - we have Directv and love it (so far). We've had it almost 2 years. We used to have Time Warner Cable but they kept raising our rates and taking away channels.

Going to try to finish up my housework that I didn't finish yesterday. It's always nice when all the cleaning is done and you can enjoy the rest of you day knowing you earned it and don't need to feel guilty for relaxing. I hope you all have a great day!

We took my parents out to supper tonight and that was nice too. Very glad to get them out.

Saturday – Quiet Friday. Next week will be busy, busy, busy, so hope to relax a little this weekend.

It was so pleasant out yesterday in the afternoon (once the fog lifted and the sun came out). Did some yard work and that felt good.

Going to walk to our downtown area today. It is the annual Strawberry Fest. Have been for 7 yrs., Lots of opportunities to spend money mindlessly and eat junk food (LOL) but not doing either today. Just going to enjoy being out, the weather and the people!

Have a good weekend.

1: I remember that so well, hilarious. yes, they got it straightened out, I loved that character, she did it so well and hit the nail on the head. That and the little girl, I loved to imitate the little girl she did, and everyone always wanted me to do it, because they thought I sounded like her. Not anymore, though. *L* Glad you got the banking done and you're Dads at ease, thank heavens!! and happy you got your walk in, too!

Ques, thanks, I love to make others laugh, it makes me feel so much better. I hope you have a wonderful time at the wedding, I'm glad I'm done with them for a while. Was supposed to go to a reception this weekend, but I'm kind of glad the mother and daughter didn't come to our daughter's now, I can go to my cousin's grad party. (Her mom comes to everything our kids have ever had, so I'm happier to go to that instead. Come on, when your excuse, and your mothers, for not coming to the wedding is "we have to get ready for our reception" and the reception is still 3 weeks away..really? I mean they got married in March and you didn't have enough time in that 3 months to prepare for your reception, somethings seriously wrong, and this is another cousin of mine.) The one who's graduation party I'm going to, her grandmother, my aunt and her mom came to our daughter's wedding and their grandaughter/daughter graduated THE NEXT DAY. Priorities, I guess...that's exactly why I'm going to her graduation and not the other one's wedding reception. Not to mention the wedding reception one lived much closer to where our daughter's wedding was held then the ones who came. (only 1 hour away compared to 2.5 hours away).

Anyway, have a great time, Ques, We have a plain antenna, and we get lots of stations, so I'll stick to that. :D

Have a great weekend!

Friday – Dad is relieved that we got banking done. PHEW. I am too. He has been worried about it the last 3 days. All done now.

Foggy Friday, but comfortable temps. Got my outdoor walk in. That’s a plus!

Otherwise, just glad it’s Friday.

Just another quick check in as it has been a busy week. Read just the last couple of blogs and Ali you do make me laugh as well - glad you found the humor between the angst in working with the phone company. I would equate it to the cable company in our area! We are not able to get some of the other things like dish as we have 'too many tall trees' - ah once again the beauty of cotton wood trees!

Sounds like things are going well for everyone which is great to hear. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. For me this is the family wedding which will be very exciting to attend.

Bring in the weekend with a Friday to remember!

Zak: I finally gave up...you know why? I got a call from...get this...THE PHONE COMPANY :D they were calling to tell me they were going to the house!!!! ARRRGGGHHH so I told them they should be calling my Mom, and they said she'd have to call to change that. I was like, are you kidding? who gave them my number to begin with and they said it had to be a second number they were given, and when they couldn't get her because of line trouble, they changed my number to the first number and now she has to call them to change it back. Crazy!!

They did make it out there, and not only is there a problem on the outside line on the pole near the road by her house there's one at the farm down the road that is causing problems at her house My question is WHY ISN'T ANYONE ELSE HAVING PHONE PROBLEMS THEN???????

Geez...3 or 4 times of checking this out and they finally figured it out..seriously??? Maybe I should go get my phone company tech license, I could probably fix it quicker! I could also change the number they call, too.

1: Glad to hear your Dad is improving, YAY what wonderful news!! Keep up the great work and keep on smiling, Lady!! I'm so proud of all my ladies here!! You are GREAT!!

Have a wonderful day!

PS: remember a lot of what I post, I'm sitting here laughing, so don't think I'm upset or anything, you have to laugh through the upsets in life *L*

Ali - Dealing with the utility companies is almost always a hassle. I've been fairly lucky though I tend to get polite ones. It sucks when you're on hold for umpteen minutes and then they get on the line giving you attitude, like you're interrupting them. I wish you luck and I hope you get the issue resolved.

1 - Happy to hear your parents had a good day. I've never heard of Meijers. We only have a couple of small local grocery stores here.

I hope you all have a great night.

1: Glad your Dad is doing better, summer illnesses are so hard to take, I'd rather be sick in the winter. How wonderful that your Parents had such a great day yesterday, and hopefully today, and that you'll get to Meijers. I've never seen one, or been to one. I think they're supposed to be putting one in here in Janesville sometime, hard to tell, we are getting so many grocery stores it's not even funny. They're like auto parts stores, I guess you can't get enough of them.

Zak: I know, that's the same with me, and my emails..so many saying "what you getting Dad for Father's day", hate those ones..Keeping my prayers going for your biopsy results, always keeping you in my prayers, Zak. Glad we could give you strength, isn't that what friends are for? *hugs* Oops, just read the second one YAY...on the results, what GREAT news!! so glad to hear the great news!! I'll bet you feel incredible!! YAY again!! and hugs again!!

I'm on hold right now, waiting on the telephone company (not even ours) who called me instead of my mom, to tell me they're coming out to "fix our phone line". Really..didn't know it needed fixing, especially by the company that isn't even our service. I think they were supposed to call my Mom, but now I'm on hold while they're with "other customers" and I wait until the "next available customer service operator can assist me". How annoying, hire more people and give more jobs to those who need them, then.

Anyway, I need to get going, I have a meeting at 5 and then back to try to figure out how to fix the pump for the pool. Hopefully my husband will be home by then. HUGS all around. emoticon

I am one who feels the same way . . . summer colds are the worst. Just so much I want to do outdoors and a cold makes me feel like I'm "missing out" on the good weather! Oh well, just have to take care of ourselves, no matter what the season!

I am grateful Dad feels better.

1 - glad to hear your Dad is doing better. For some reason I always think that being sick in the summer is so much worse than being sick during winter. I don't know, guess I'm just weird that way.

Ali - I can relate. Father's Day has been hard on me as well since he passed. This year hit me harder than ones in the past (it'll be 7 years in July). I'm not sure why it hit me so hard. I couldn't even scroll through Facebook because of all the Father's Day posts. I am sorry to hear that your volunteers have backed out or are just not responding. I hope they come through for you and the project.

I find out the results of the biopsy today. I'll be sharing the good news (thinking positive - something I don't do to often) later. I want to thank you for all of your prayers and positive thoughts (and hugs), while waiting for the results. I have found such strength from you ladies, your support is much appreciated.

Tuesday – much better day for Dad. Much improved by yesterday evening. Still using an oral decongestant and the steam vaporizer w/VicksVapoRub. Making him drink lots of fluids. At least he’s cooperating w/that.

Storms blew thru yesterday, but today is a calmer, cooler day. That’s all right w/me.

Sorry I wasn't around, but Saturday was the Tub Run, was busy all day and night that day, and Sunday..well..Father's Day has been tough for me since Dad passed away. I spent a lot of time at the cemetery reading to him his favorite book (Lonesome Dove) like I promised him when he was passing away (yes that exact moment, I made the promise to finish reading the book to him. We were only on chapter 2 when he passed). So I went down and spent time there reading to him. I just don't do Father's Day so well anymore, and so I kind of avoid everything on that day.

Today I was busy with things for the upcoming fundraiser. I'm telling you, we had 15 people ready to help with it, but now 3 of them have backed out, and 7 of them haven't responded to my asking if they're going to help, and 8 of our board members I've emailed won't even respond to their emails. I don't know why I even bother sometimes.

I hope you've all been well and enjoyed the weekend, and I hope the week ahead is good for you. Have a great Tuesday.

Saturday – Yesterday was a perfect weather day – sunny, breezy, a bit cool, but gorgeous. Got an outside walk in early in the morning, and that was awesome.

Mom had a good day. We worked on her puzzles together, look @ albums. Even she took a short walk outside!

Jason is set to see the surgeon on 03 July, then the surgical date will be set. OY

Have a great weekend.

What a great day for you, 1, and I'm so glad Mr. Spot is feeling better, that's wonderful news. *L* yep, once he gets a taste of the good stuff, he probably will turn up his nose at Kibble. I'm also happy to hear that your Mom is in a great mood, too, I'm so happy for you both, don't you love days like that, I sure do! *HUGS* I'll keep Jason in my prayers, keep positive, and I know, when it rains, it pours as they say, but we also get stronger with each one. :)

Ques: Thank you, I know those hot days are the ones I'd love to get in there and do some water exercise, I love doing that, especially when no ones home and I can just turn up the radio and enjoy. so relaxing and fun. Today Im heading out to get my pledges turned in for the MDA Tub Run which is tomorrow and all that, then groceries, think I'm skipping the Poker Run tonight. I hope it's nice for the ride, if not, I'll drive my car, can do that, too in the Tub Run, don't need a Harley, can drive anything.

Ques: Each day w/mom is totally different. What was good one day is NOT good the next. That's what makes it challenging! But, working with it.

Hope we ALL get a chance to breathe.

Friday – well Jason does have to have surgery to repair a hernia. **SIGH** It just doesn’t seem to stop, but I know he’ll be all right. He had one about 18 yrs. Ago. Not fun.

Mr. Spot is much improved, thankfully. PHEW.

Ali - I feel exactly the same way - so much going on and not enough time to get to everything. Hope you are able to get the pool open soon - even with fluctuating weather temps those hot days it would feel great to get into a pool to cool down.

1CrazyDog - Glad the bridge is part way done - not a fun experience would imagine it also makes chewing somewhat challenging. Would be nice to figure out what makes such a good day for your Mom - always encouraging and wish it was easier to duplicate those days!

Zak - Always in your corner thinking of you and hoping that you feel each day is a new opportunity for positive changes.

Have a great weekend - it's almost here emoticon

Ooohhh that's too bad that she couldn't tolerate it. I hope they're both doing well today, and you, too.

Btw, I just asked our daughter and she said "That's the only suggestion I'd have was bland diet for a week." I hope it helps, I asked her on my messenger on FB, she's at work right now.

Not much to report here, warm out I keep wishing we had the pool open, with everything that's been going on, we haven't even had the chance to take the cover off, plus we have to get our behinds up to Oregon to pick up the chemicals. So much going on and not enough days in the week.

Have a great day, everyone and never forget to share those smiles! emoticon

Ali: Mom had been on Aricept but could not tolerate it at all nor the Exelon patch. So, that is what was tried for her.

Hey, if your Dd has words of advice, pls. don't hesitate! The worst the vet will say is that isn't applicable to Spot. Thanks!!

1: boy it did sound like a sentence didn't it. Good behavior..at least it was good, YAY! Thank you. ;) Sorry to hear Spot was having problems, poor pup. He's glad to have you to watch him. Yeah, the bland diet is the best for him, wish our daughter was here, I could ask her for more info, but I'd hate to do anything that is against what your Vet is doing, and she's a Vet Tech, so best to stay with what your Vet says.

Sorry about your Mom, too, I can't even imagine how hard it is for someone with alzheimer's what a terrible disease. Do they have her on any meds for it (I can't remember, I'm sorry, I'm thinking they do.) you and your parents are always in my prayers. *hugs lots*

Zak, always think positive...I love that. I know, wondering is always there no matter how much positivity you have. Those prayers will continue, don't worry. You need a hobby to keep your hands (and mind) busy, something new that you've never done, that you can sit down and learn to do. Have you tried anything new? *hugs*

I have so much to talk about, but I'll just save it for my blog, let's just say it has to do with road blocked by firetrucks, ambulance, sheriff's cars on way home from meeting (1/4-1/2 mile from my house) on Monday, and having to call the Sheriff's dept because of missing Mom. I am still searching for that truckload of Calgon and I'll put it in the pool and EVERYONE is invited over!! :D

Thanks 1 - the prayers are much appreciated (and the hugs too!) Oh poor little Mr. Spot. I hope the bland diet helps. It so hard when our furry children are sick. Sorry to hear your Mom struggled yesterday, she is in my prayers (as are the rest of you).

Nothing much to report. Still bingeing, really need to learn how to cope with my stress better. Working on it. Have a great rest of your Wednesday.

Zak: You know you have tons of prayers going upward for good results. ((((HUGS))) too.

Wednesday – well off to the dentist for the installation of permanent bridge #1 and prep for bridge #2 and the temporary. ACK!

NOT a good night @ all. Spot was having GI problems, so we had to bring him to the ER vet. OMG. We left @ 10:30 pm and didn’t get home till 1 am. He does not have any specific GI diagnosis, but we have to feed him a bland diet (boiled chicken, boiled hamburger meat – either one – with rice) and see how he does. They also did a chest x-ray which showed an enlarged heart (not unexpected). So, we just have to watch him for any signs of heart failure down the road (suspected that, too), but no medication. The ER vet indicated that the murmur she heard is not bad, but again, have to monitor. Told her I had been and no changes since his check up in May. So . . . that was the evening/early morning.

Mom had an extremely confused morning and afternoon. But was a little better in the evening. It is so hard for her.

Gorgeous day yesterday. Mowed the grass. Nothing like the smell of fresh mown grass in the morning!

Just hopping on to give a quick update before I head off to bed. Today was my biopsy. I won't know the results until next Tuesday. Trying to think positive...not always working out that way. I know it's going to be fine...but you wonder, what if it's not. I hope you all have a great Wednesday, see you all tomorrow.

Heaithy: That's wonderful, way to go, get right up and start the day right, don't ever let anythng stop you from getting your exercise in and working out. You are doing fantastic, keep up the great work. How wonderful, I'm so proud of you!

1: Oh boy, talk about stubborn, my husband is full blooded German (I'm Norwegian/Scottish Irish, etc, my Dad was full blooded Norwegian..our kids are stubborn, too). What a great background to help with your Parents, that is great! Things were great for the wedding, I took a couple days and just took it easy..that's where I've been, besides the gift opening, etc. Sunday, and meeting for the Playground on Monday and getting things ready for that. So glad the visit with your Rita and your Uncle went so well, that is wonderful.

Zak: Way to keep that positive attitude, I love it, and the McDonald's meeting went great! Thank you!

Ques: Yes, it was a wonderful weekend, and I'm so glad your wedding went so well, didn't see you at ours, so I guess it wasn't the same one. :D It rained enough to get the chairs wet, but we got them dried off, then poured during the reception, but that was inside, thank goodness! Glad the dress fit, congrats!!

I really hate missing out on so many days, it's not that I'm missing my exercises, etc, just that I am running so much I don' t have time to stop and sit at the computer, that's a dream of mine. But I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead, more meetings for me and lots to do for the MDA Tub Run on Saturday (which I always was invited to my cousins Baby shower on Friday but that's up by Boscobel, 2.5 hours away, can't do it, that's the poker run for MDA, besides, it's her 3rd or 4th kid, why did they have a shower???)

Have a great week.

1CrazyDog, Wish you the best. Hardest thing to step back and let reality be the thing for your dad, but better than trying to bang your head into the wall by pushing the issue too much. Maybe he will be more open to/for a good heart to heart as he looks at different places and visualizes the two of them in another home. I know before you brought them to your place you looked into different services in your area. Are there any geriatricians or health care facilities that have geriatric counseling that deals with Alzheimer's? They can be very informative and supportive for resources that are available.

Zak - was it a good day today?

Got back in the swing with strength training tonight and soon out for an evening walk.

My favorite day tomorrow - Hump Day ;)
Have a great rest of the evening,
Ques

Dad is definitely realizing more and more how difficult it would be to manage things on his own. If it were just him, taking care of just himself, he could do it w/o a problem. But with the care Mom requires it saps the energy from his bones! I am just going to "let it go" till tomorrow, then see what his thoughts are.

Ques - emoticon So glad the dress fit - you did it! Awesome! I'm glad you had fun even if you had a little to much soda. I do journal my feelings - maybe not as much as I should. It does help me to see things a little clearer. Way to go getting your gardening done.

1 - How is that going with your Dad (cutting down on the care you give)? Did he seem interested in the condo? I hope it all works out for you and your family - you're in my prayers.

Went with Frank on another job and walked for a little while. Not to much because then he needed my help, but I did something at least. I hope you all have a great Tuesday.

Yeah on the dress and having a good time!

Yes, I do believe Dad sees it as his responsibility as her husband, BUT realistically, that is IMPOSSIBLE when caring for someone w/Alzheimer's. My tactic right now is backing way down from my involvement, so he sees for himself that it is impossible to do it alone, and NOBODY EXPECTS HIM TOO. I frankly don't think it's going to take too long for that to dawn on him. We'll see.

I personally do love journaling. Gets things in "black and white" so more "in your face, this is what's going on" kinda situation. . .. at least for me.

Good evening,

emoticon Dress fit emoticon Had a fantastic time at the wedding! Was such a beautiful ceremony and couple - they couldn't quit smiling, which of course made all of us smile as well. Was great to be a part of their celebration.

Weather wasn't so cooperative today - we are really getting the rain in SE WI, however the clouds stuck around through the afternoon and some sun finally peaked through. The bigger issue was finally the rain stopped so I could get out and do some yard work that greatly needed to get done.

1CrazyDog: Hmm that is quite an undertaking your dad is contemplating moving your mom to a condo. Does he just want them to be back on their own so he can be more 'in charge' of taking care of your mom? I wonder if he see's her care as his responsibility as her spouse? Was your mom also going to visit the condo? Wish you luck on the outcome....

Zak: Do you journal your feelings when you are challenged to feel like you are 'keeping on track'? Just wondered if you had tapped into what you are feeling? One of my biggies at the wedding was too much soda - didn't want to drink too much alcohol as I was driving and early on water wasn't an option ( so made up for it once dinner started) - but still lots of wasted calories on the beverage.

I am impressed with anyone who can enter any restaurant let alone a DQ in the summer and not order something - way to go HealthyMomma!

Ali - hope you had a great weekend and everyone else.

Monday will be here all too soon!

1 - glad to hear you had a nice visit with your Uncle and Rita. It is amazing when you meet someone like him that is so sharp at that age. I'm with you, I hope I am as well! Maybe when he sees the condo he won't like it - fingers crossed.

Healthy - Wow you are really rockin! Not only did you walk to DQ but you didn't get anything - emoticon

I've been bingeing again...just can't seem to get on track and stay on track. But I'm not giving up. I hope you all have a great start of the week.

Sunday – definitely a day of rest . . . till we go look @ the condo Dad wants to see. Trying to just play it low key and pray that he really sees it would be IMPOSSIBLE.

Another gray day! At least not raining right now. I’ll take it.

The visit w/my Uncle and Rita went very well yesterday. Mom really enjoyed seeing them. Me too. My Uncle is 91 and sharp as a tack! I hope that I am that mentally sharp @ that age!

Zak: Wtg finding a nice little workout to get in. We go camping alot so walking around the campground is always so nice expecially if it out in the middle of nowhere kinda campground.



I did good yesterday. Walked 1 1/2miles in the morning. Strength training. Then a 1 1/2 round trip to dairy queen to get my daughter an icecream so she liked my last workout too lol. plus she does love to ride in the stroller.

I can and will do it. For me, for my daughter, for my family, for God.

Hi everyone!

Boy miss a day and I miss a lot!

Ques - wishing you luck on the dress fitting! I hope you have fun at the wedding.

Healthy - Great job resisting the beef stew. You're doing amazing with your activity - keep it up!

1 - I think that's a good idea letting your Dad take on more of the care for your Mom. Hopefully that will show him how difficult it can be, especially on her bad days.

Ali - I hope your fundraiser with McDonalds went well. Have fun at your nieces wedding, it'll be a nice break for all of your running around.

Thanks for all of the well wishes. I am 99.9% positive it will be nothing. I am keeping a positive attitude and not letting that .1% get to me. Frank had a small job today at a campground, so while he was working I walked around the campground. It didn't take him long but it was a nice little walk. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Positive thoughts lead to positive actions which yield positive results.


Remember, persistence not perfection.

Ali: Sometimes I shock myself! LOLOLOLOL

Well, my Dad is full blooded German, Mom full Irish – talks about a “HOT COMBO” -- YIKES I don’t think stubbornness gets any better with that combo!

I am telling you, my days as an RN in ER, ICU/CCU served me well in the being organized dept. If you weren’t organized your ship sunk! Home health was the same way. So, I’m glad I have that in me!

We may have had 2 in., but no more. YIKES! If your niece is having an outdoor wedding, I hope things are dried up!

HEALTHY: Hope you get your outside time!

It rained here all day long yesterday, and I did nothing. No workouts, no cleaning, nothing. Woke up today so tired and I thought it might be another day just like yesterday, but then I said nope not going to happen. Got up and walked a mile and a half. Felt wonderful. Weather was nice. Sun was shining and gave me the energy I needed to jump start my day. Going to do strength training soon then get my house clean. Then I get my neice and nephew so going to take them outside to play till there mom picks them up. (about an hour) Then I think ill do an SP workout video, and after supper taking my daughter and walking to the park. After a rainy day I just want a lot of outside time. :)

1: Yep, finally am breathing, it's a miracle *L* and boy did it feel good. Think I'll take an umbrella, it's still raining and as of this morning we were up to 3.5" of rain. I keep thinking thank goodness our Daughter's wedding was last weekend instead of this weekend, but then they say it's supposed to be nice tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed for our Niece. Thank you, I think the meeting today will go well, just have to set a date for the fundraiser after discussing the details and make sure we want to actually do it...ok..so there is quite a bit we need to do. :D

My Dad was stubborn, too, but that comes along with being a full blooded Norwegian, but I'm proud of that. Good luck with the Doctor's appointments, you're all in my prayers, and I love how well organized you are. You're amazing, Lady!!!! *HUGS* Have a great day!

Friday – Out the door early to get Mom and Dad to their Dr. appts. Hoping it goes well. Rainy weather – darn it! NOT what I’d hoped for, but we’ll be fine.

Got all my prep work done for entertaining my Uncle on Saturday.

1: Now that the weddings done, well our Daughter's, I'm breathing a little more. *L* thank goodness. The Fundraisers are now kicking in (as well as the niece's wedding Saturday, but not as much going on with that one, I'm not involved with anything with that, thank goodness, just attending it and others. After the fundraisers, the next big thing will be the pony show (nearly a week long) in August. Wow, sounds like you have a lot going on this weekend, take care of yourself, good luck with looking at the condo, it's too bad your dad won't allow in home care, it'd be so much easier on you. I'm keeping my fingers crossed your Dad listens to the Doc.

Heaithy: You're very welcome, and yes, very busy, but I'm going to try to find more time for myself from now on, I need it, I think, otherwise I'll have one of those tight jackets that hug me tight. :D It poured last night here, not sure how much we got, but it sure did rain in the middle of the night. I found when I want food, I reach for water and drink a lot of it..that takes care of my craving, that's for sure..and I never used to drink any water at all.

Zak: Well we have both..it's just that neither are ready to go right now. the AC is in the garage waiting to be put in and the pool still has the winter cover on and the chemicals aren't picked up yet. The way the weather's going, the pool won't ever get warm, because we've not taken that cover off and put the solar cover on to warm it up. Today, it's cold out, and if it keeps this up, it won't stay warm. ARRRGGGHH. :D

Wonderful to hear about your blood sugars, that is great news, keep up the great job. I'll keep you in my prayers regarding the biopsy!! It's best to stay positive!!

Ques: I'm like you, I have not idea what to do if I just had to sit and do nothing...I'd have to get up and do something because I'd be so lost :D Hey, you're not going to a wedding in Milton are you (Koshkonong Mounds, actually)? That's where I'm going to one Saturday, maybe it's the same one. I'm still trying to decide if I should just wear the one I wore for the rehearsal dinner, or a short one, not sure, but I'm certain I'll decide before then. Why waste the one I wore for that, but I WON'T wear the one for the wedding (at least not with that dang corset, that thing HURT!). Anyway..enjoy your wedding.

Well I have another meeting tomorrow about a fundraiser with McDonald's, the one yesterday went really well, that was an interview with the Messenger (a tri county type newspaper that goes out all over the place). Hoping I get some help with the rest of the board with this fundraiser, I'm sure I will.

Then Monday night I have a meeting with our board to get going on the fundraisers and the design for the playground, gotta get that done.

Have a great day everyone, and see you soon. emoticon emoticon

Healthy: Proud of you too! It is NOT easy, but you did it!

Friday – Drs. Appts. w/both Mom and Dad.

Saturday – entertaining Mom’s brother

Sunday – going to see a condo Dad wants to see.

THAT to me is a disaster waiting to happen, because Dad will not allow in home care and he simply cannot take care of all Mom’s needs by himself. So have a plan for that:

Pulling back on what I do for Mom (within reason, of course) so Dad gets a “taste” of trying to do this alone. Just not possible, especially on days when Mom is super uncooperative and confused. **SIGH** And I can’t spend 24/ there @ their own place, either as I have obligations here @ home.

Mom’s Dr. is my Dr., so I have given her a heads up and we are going to have a pow wow tomorrow about realistic future planning with Dad present. Maybe he’ll “hear” it if she says it.

Meanwhile, we’ll keep the appt. on Sunday to see the appt. but I really think it’s a BAD idea!

Woke up and looks like rain. Ugh. Last night around 8pm I felt "hungry" but I knew it was real hunger. I was still so close to eating that I was already browsing the kitchen for something. I found a can of beef stew. One of those high calorie, fat, and sodium things. But I didnt do it. I grab a stick of gum and heated up some water for tea, and almost the moment I started chewing I didn't want that diet ruining can of food anymore. Resisting food when I want it is one of the hardest challenges I face on my way to my goals. So this is something for me to be proud of.

As usual it's amazing to read everything that has been going on over the past few days.

Zak - Just adding my encouraging words that it's great that your blood work was good and I am glad that you are following up with your physician for further assessment. Waiting can be such a stressful time, so keep your thoughts positive and your feet moving forward.

Ali - Just when I think I am going to read that you are taking some R&R, you write about everything else on your plate! I don't know what you would do if you actually had a day with nothing penciled in - but I hope you find one soon!

1CrazyDog - ikes teeth issues just sound painful to me - glad to hear you are half way there and hope the rest is smooth sailing.

HealthyMomma - what a great day for your family to spend time at the zoo. Just last year we took my 86 y/o mom to the St. Louis zoo - was really a fun day.

With WI fluctuating weather have been spending evenings outdoors (sometimes batting the mosquito's away and others biking), then indoors on those cooler evenings such as tonight. Have a wedding to attend this weekend so will be trying on the dress that I am planning on wearing in two weeks (my preview wear Zak - will let you know how it goes!).

Glad Hump Day is almost over and that means the weekend is one day nearer,
have a emoticon Thursday,

Healthy - Awesome job on your loss! Keep it up, you can do this.

Ali - Wow you hardly had a second to breathe! It is wonderful that you are so active within your community - just remember you need to take time for you too. You have a pool and ac? We have neither... but we still manage - lots of fans *L*. I would love to have a pool (reminiscing back to when I did have one and was in it every day - *sigh*) Hopefully those will get taken care of soon so you can use them and keep cool this summer.

1 - Yay on getting part one done! Sounds like you'll be pretty busy too. Same advice as we give Ali - breathe.

Well I had my physical today and my blood sugars are awesome - no concerns there. But... during my exam she found some discoloration and pitting on one of my breasts, so I have to go in next week for a biopsy. She told me it was probably nothing but she wanted to get it checked out just in case. I am trying to stay positive and not get worked up until I get the results, but I have to admit I am a little afraid. I hope you all have wonderful night and a great Thursday.

Positive thoughts lead to positive actions which yield positive results.

HEAITHY: YAY, way to go, 4.6 pounds, excellent!! You are doing great, you can do this, I know you can, keep that head up and you will get there!! Congrats!! Definitely those tools and all the forums/friends definitely help.

1: Good luck with the physicals with our parents, like you tell me, remember to breathe! It is warm out, wish we'd had time to get our pool open, but the winter cover is still on, I wish we had the ac put in the window, too, but no such luck. YAY on getting part 1 of the bridge done!! relax until part 2!!

I had a meeting this morning, an interview with a local paper, well a county paper, I felt it went well, it was wonderful, had such a great time. Got home and had to set up a meeting with the board for Monday. Also have a meeting Friday for a Fundraiser at a local McDonalds.Lots going on already, along with our niece's wedding on Saturday. Here w go again. *LOL* but I'm used to it. Have a great day. emoticon

Wednesday – well, got thru part one of the bridge #1. Wahoo! Don’t have another apt. w/the dentist till next Wednesday.

Friday Mom and Dad go for physicals. So, I’ll go with them . Time will be tight as my Mom’s brother and wife are coming for a visit on Saturday morning. YIKES! So will be busy the next few days.

Starting out to be a nice day . .. . warm, but not quite as humid.

Ali: Glad you found your phone! PHEW

Healthy: Woo Hoo on the weight released. Good job!

And you’re right . . . . prioritizing is so important so the most important task(s) get done!

I haven't been on much the last few days. Just been on long enough to pretty much track my food and workouts, but thats is the most important daily task on here in my opinion. Going to try to be on more though cause I find the other tools of sparkpeople (expecially the forums and friends) provide unequal support. :)

Today was my weigh in and I lost 4.6lbs. Whoohooo!! Makes me very happy and gives me the inspiration I need to keep it going. :)

1: Finally, at least for a few days, have our Niece's wedding this weekend, but I'm not as involved in that one. Found my phone so I can definitely breathe now. :) *hugs* I haven't even had the chance to go outside yet, Everything I've had to do was inside. They were and are, so happy, and I'm happy for them, thank you so much. :) Yes, you'll get through, you have to, there's no other choice. I'll keep all of you in my prayers. Stay strong, my friend.

Zak: Thank you, she had a gorgeous dress, I loved how it came up at the side, soooo Victorian-like, perfect for that type of mansion where the ceremony was held. I hope the photos in front of the mansion come soon so I can show you all what it looked like.

Beautiful day outside from the looks of it, I'm going to step out in a bit to check it out. Have a wonderful one.

Ali - your daughter looks so beautiful...I love her dress! I am so happy that you (and your whole family) enjoyed themselves. What a blessing the weather cooperated. I hope you can actually breathe now. *chuckles*

Positive thoughts lead to positive actions which yield positive results.


Remember, persistence not perfection.
