Had a great night last night hanging out with hubby. We played a board game. It was the first time I have been up past 9 in a long time! But, it was really nice emoticon

I'm going to try doing some grocery shopping today. I've been almost back to my routine at home, so we shall see. I may need a nap, but it will be nice to leave the house for a bit emoticon

Hubby leaves tomorrow morning to go back to work. I am ever so thankful that he has been with me this week. But, now it is time to fend for myself. My hope is to do some sewing, even if it is in small segments.

Sounds like it is going to get cold this afternoon with mixed rain and snow. Just have to keep reminding ourselves that it is still February emoticon

Sunday – beautiful day outside. 50’s and sunny. A wonderful day for an outside walk!

Got the taxes done. Lawrd. NOT PRETTY. But done for another year.

Ended up taking Mom and Dad out to supper as Dad was having major cabin fever, and it was gorgeous out! Jas and I did get to breakfast this morning . . . alone . . . all by ourselves . . . like real adults! HURRAY Breakfast is my fav meal anyhow, so it worked out fine.

Had a good day. Felt kind of blah this morning, so I read a bit, munched too much, and took a nap. After my nap, I did laundry and washed the dishes. It felt good to do some normal activities. Because I munched earlier, we opted for soup for dinner. Sodium is high in canned soups, but the calories are lower than most meals :)

Spent the afternoon looking for some button for a memo board I am making my daughter. I ended up contacting an etsy shop that I have used many times. She makes custom buttons out of polymer clay. I love her work, and I have never been disappointed.

Watching Karate Kid with hubby tonight, and I plan on crocheting a bit more.

Mom used to find music soothing, but now it's catch-as-catch-can. Changes daily.

HUGS and glad that the music helps your Mom and her roomie!

M, lovely afghan. I can tell from the tone of your letter that you are feeling much better. So happy about that. Being alone all day is probably a good thing. You can rest better without caring interruptions.

Sally, enjoy the spa day. DH took me to have my toenails done for the first time ever last March. I just cut the last of the polish off on one of the toes (the rest was long gone). But they sure looked nice when I had it done. Even with my ingrown toenails.

Mom's roomie with Alzheimer's told me yesterday she liked the music, too. I'm so glad because I don't want Mom's entertainment to upset Ruth. Ruth does get agitated sometimes. It has to be hard to go thru that.

Can't believe it is Saturday already! I felt pretty good yesterday, napped less and felt more productive. I still took it easy, but felt better. We did make a quick trip to Walmart for some feminine products....LOL Hubby had bought some for me the day of my surgery, but bought the wrong ones. I give him a lot of credit for trying. He couldn't believe how many different ones there were, and that Walgreens had two aisles! But, two items and we left. Still not enough energy for a full shopping trip!

I took a nap after lunch, and made chicken quesadillas for dinner. After dinner, I even did some crocheting on my afghan! I only did one row, but I still worked on it!





Hubby ran to Milwaukee with his brother today, so I will be fending for myself for about 7 hours or so. I feel pretty good. Just not going slow.. If I feel up to it, I may watch my sewing machine embroider a bib. I would like to sew up a couple more of the owls one I made - one for my soon to be granddaughter and one to list in my etsy shop.

Of course, a nap will be somewhere in there! I also need to adjust some meals I am eating. I went over in calories yesterday. With me sitting around most of the day, I need to make some adjustments! Starting with the oat nut bread by Brownberry I bought. It tastes so good, but 120 calories per slice! We will be having half a sandwich today! Hubby talked about going somewhere for a salad bar for dinner tonight, but I never do well at those. I put all the "good" stuff in it so it isn't healthy anymore.

Hope you all have a great weekend. It's supposed to get to 50 here!

Saturday – Well, fortunately the caregiver yesterday was wonderful. It worked out well. I am grateful.

Tax day today. UGH Will need some libation after that!

Good progress! And may the last 3 go smoothly! Good luck packing the center pieces for transport!

Yeah for pampering Sally. YOU DESERVE IT!

HOPE your fix of the computer @ work today works.

Enjoy your company dinner. Have fun! I KNOW you will.

Rhonda: Yea on no girl scout cookie temptations!

I think it's going to consist of both a Pedi and nails .. :) Get my March nails put on .. :) and then stop at the office to pick up my boxes to start packing up these centerpieces .. :) All are done with the exception of the 3 laggers .. but even those are almost done, because I got all the pieces put together so all I have to do is GLUE them together .. :) Tomorrow hubby is going to help me pack whatever ones I can .. :) and I can get them to the office YAY !!!! and out of my house !!! YAY AGAIN !!!! :)

While I'm at the office I have to take a look at one of the computers that caught itself a touch o virus .. lol .. According to my router guy; he said it should be able to be fixed with a system restore .. so we'll see what I can do with that today ..

Then Monday I can enjoy my vacation again .. (last day)

busy day here

1: I talked to my sister and it sounds like my nieces are not doing girl scouts this year. This is good news for me. Here, we see cookies this time of year. They live in IL so they get their cookies later. So I won't be asked to buy more later!!

Friday – Praying for a calm day. Have a new dare giver this morning. HOPING it goes smoothly.

Otherwise, pretty usual Friday. Jason goes to Madison, as usual, but then has to go to a meeting in Janesville (about an hr. from Madison). So, he won’t be home till late.

Hope you all have a good Friday!

Sally: It’s all about keeping DH busy, isn’t it! Keep ‘em out of trouble. But sounds like he managed to find it anyhow yesterday!

Ah yes, it can get old making appointments to stay home I imagine! But hope you accomplish lots on your stay – at – home day.

M: It takes awhile to get the zippity back in the doo dah, but it’ll come. Resting is a good thing for you right now.

DH’s can be a bit “hoover-ey” when we’re recuperating from something, but thank goodness for them! They’re a blessing.

Sleeping thru the night is a good thing. Glad for you.

Lee: Good morning!

Hope y’all have a wonderful Friday.

Yay M, sleeping thru the night!!! Your body has been assaulted by the surgery and needs time and rest to heal. We are all looking forward to you feeling on top of the world, but not today.

Sally, I am amused at your confidence that you could put your stay at home day to the last of the week, of course, you do still have the weekend if you run into a glitch, which you won't. And it will be nice when your life is not dictated by centerpieces, but it has been such fun watching them develop. So what is your next all consuming project?

Thank you Sally! I did have to take some meds this morning. But, I am still thrilled to not wake myself up all not to take meds. Just need to get through this cramping and bleeding, which is normal considering what I had done during surgery. My energy seems a bit better this morning. i plan on taking my vitamins today. I haven't taken them since my pre op appointment. Trying to get back on a routine :)

Sally - Isn't it great to have a hubby that wants to spend time with you? Enjoy your playroom today!

Spent the day yesterday resting. I just feel so weak and tired. It did feel good to take a bath and wash my hair!

I didn't take any pain meds last night. It felt good to sleep through the night. I had been setting alarms to keep the meds consistent. Now, I know I can take them on a "as needed" basis.

Hope everyone is doing well!

'That's good you could make the trip. Yes, for sure there are the auras around lights @ night. That was one of the more important highlights of having cataracts.

Crazy, can you request your favorite carer, or does she not work there anymore? You don't need any additional stress, and neither does your mother.

M, sounds like things are going the way they should. Best to avoid the narco, it can lead to constipation and that is the last thing you want. Looking forward to that pain free future!

We came back early from Indiana because my niece was sick and they were predicting bad weather in route. We beat the snow back and were not underfoot. She had set up a mass for my deceased son and had an award banquet Tuesday noon. We went to the mass without her and she skipped the banquet so didn't need a sitter. But I was glad I went. More happy that my sister did all the driving. But I got to see what they were talking about when they said cataracts give you auras on headlights. They are pretty rainbows that circle the lights. I didn't mind those, but not being able to read road signs was more of a problem.

Thursday – Hoping there is resolution to the caregiver situation of yesterday. If not, have another agency to interview and will move on.

Had a nice, quiet birthday evening. Everyone wanted pizza, so I did bake a pizza. Didn’t have any though. Had tuna (ahi) and spinach w/blueberries. Delish.

Today Dad’s physical therapist comes. He is working hard at the exercises he is being taught, so proud of him on that one.

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

Rhonda: Definitely have to back away from the thin mints, too.

Sally: Have a good road trip! Be safe, have fun!

M; glad you can get by w/o the narco. I hate taking pain meds! Awww. . . your MIL is a keeper. HUGS Glad you got that dressing off!

Doing well this morning. I'll be taking a bath and removing bandages this morning. Boy, does that sound good!! I also plan on trying to take Tylenol during the day in place of the Narco they prescribed. I just sleep all day with that! If the pain is too much, I'll go back. But, I am also taking ibuprofen.
i would like to do some crocheting today, but I will not push it. If I need the sleep, I will sleep :)

My mother in law brought over sandwiches, chili, and lemon pie yesterday. That was really nice of her. Tim does't cook, so it was really nice.

Wednesday – This is just so stressful. Now the carer Amy is not going to be coming on Wed. or Fri. anymore. Today is a new carer, Lisa. So we shall have to start from square one and see how it goes. **SIGH* good thing I have the routine in a notebook and have it laminated so it SHOULD be idiot-proof – I hope! LOL

Going to be a rough April and May. Jason’s left eye cataract surgery is April 26th, Dr. visit April 27th. Then his right eye surgery is 10 May with the Dr. visit on 11 May.

That is in addition to being out of town from 04 April to 07 April for a meeting in NOLA. OMGOMGOMG finding my calm place!


Rhonda: No, I haven’t found a way to keep the world from happening. Just have to deep breathe! Thank GOODNESS no exposure here to Thin Mints. Yikes!

Michelle: Good for you! Feet up, DH waiting on you. Awesome! Glad your pain is minimal. HUGS

Sally: Oh lordy. My DH is 64 (no plans for retiring, YET – probably not till he’s NINETY!) But when he retires, he’s going to have to be a WalMart greeter! LOL

Good morning to my friends ..

*sigh* ..my blog is all over the board this morning .. hubby has started sitting down with his new computer along with me in the morning, so I'm getting a lot of interruptions .. because he doesn't know how to use Windows 8 .. *sigh* .. This morning was the worse so far .. so I finally just hung up my thoughts of doing an in depth blog .. *sigh again* ..

I'll be going with him today to meet his "Wii bowling" friends .. :) I told him that Friday MUST be for me to work my centerpieces, as this is why I took this week off to begin with .. I'm just at a point that I'm alittle more comfortable .. but starting to tense up with what needs to be done yet .. (I don't do last minute well .. and once I get back to work, my schedule is well packed .. I only have 2 1/2 more weeks now .. Not good .. )

Wish everyone a great day !!!

Relaxing in my recliner, giving myself some computer time. My pain is pretty minimal. Of course, I am on prescription ibuprofen and hydrocodone....LOL My plan is to take it easy for most of the week. Hubby can wait on me :)

Hope everyone is doing well. Just wanted to check in.

Doctor said surgery went well. I am home resting on the couch sipping on a Shamrock Shake that hubby picked up. Feels soooo good on my sore throat!!

Wanted to check in with all my friends. I'll check in again sometime tomorrow.

Hi, everyone. Sorry about being gone so long, but I've had a ton on my plate, so to say. Between working with the playground rebuild (tons of meetings, fundraising, etc) and trying to heal various "injuries" on my foot/ankle (being Type 1 Diabetic it's important to do), I've rarely gotten near the computer.

I hope everyone is doing well, 1, lots of hugs for being so wonderful. I hope your lives are going well and things are looking up for all of you.

Take care of yourselves.

Tuesday – Calm day yesterday. Wahoo! Mom got on very well w/the carer, Linda. PHEW.

Waiting to hear back from the speech therapist to get a plan going for Dad. Trying to be patient.

Colder here, but no precip, so I’ll be content!

Sally: Glad you enjoyed puppy club! Yeah on your progress w/Hank! And good you didn’t have to deal with that pain in the . . . well, you know! And have back up on that decision.

Kudos on your lunch success.

Enjoy your stay-cation!

Lee: Safe travels!

Good morning to my friends ... :)

Puppy club was a BLAST !!! The dogs in our class are awesome, the people are awesome and I had a wonderful time .. We have 8 dogs in our class, and 2 of which are members just working their dogs with distraction.. but partake in the class activities .. :) It was a WONDERFUL time, and I was sore when I got home, but it was a happy sore !!! :) I got an instructors tshirt, and will get a revamped name tag next week .. because my old name tag shows my position as "chief cook and bottle washer" .. :)

Today is the first day of my "sta-cation" and hubby offered to take me out to lunch .. It's senior day at Pottawatomi .. and I love their buffet !!! :) so he's taking me there for lunch !! :) I'm also going to work on centerpieces .. :) and chip tops .. lol lol lol ..

Wishing everyone a great day .. .and success in everything you do !!!

Sally, sure looks like you are looking forward to your puppy fix! I don't blame you.

M, I am sure DH is worried about you, too. I am going out of town for a few days, but I look forward to coming back to hear about how your recovery is much less painful than the cramps. And it will continue to get easier until you are back to your old self. Feeling normal is such a high after feeling crumby. Hope everything goes even better than you expected. Hugs.

Relaxing at home today. It is much more important to take care of me. Hubby volunteered to do the grocery shopping himself tonight when he gets home. All I need to do is make a list.

Thought I might work on some cross stitch and watch some of my tv shows that I never watch. The television never gets turned on while hubby is out of town. I'm just too busy to have it on with my early work schedule.

My husband is also exhausted. He worries about work so much that it affects his sleep due to a lot of anxiety. This time off this week will be good for him too, give him some much needed rest!

Supposed to be colder and cloudy today. Loved seeing the warmer temps over the weekend!! But, it is only February....

Glad you had a good Sunday. Laughter – it is revitalizing! Glad you had such a good time with your Mom. Mom’s are SPECIAL!

Your fajitas would hit the spot! And great veggie choices.

Oh no on the casualty, but just as I thought . . . . you’re prepared!

OMG! You give new meaning to the word ambidexterous and multitasking! Yup . . . . not easy when body parts have a mind of their own. IT’s like kids. If you give one kid attention you bet the other one’s nose will be out of joint.

And yes, Mom’s always worry about not “bothering us” even though we WANT to help when they need it. **SIGH** Dad’s are the same way. Hurray for a good watermelon.

Good luck w/the puppy club tonight. You’ll remember.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Good morning to my friends .. :)

I had a WONDERFUL day yesterday !!! (explained in detail in my blog .. ) .. I had a wonderful time with mom .. I think I figured out why my left hand / thumb is sore and swollen, and I got 15 centerpieces done (not including the final bling), I picked up the last 6 dice from mom's house (so that will be 3 more centerpieces) .. but I have all the "steps" premade so they will be put together really fast and easily .. :) I have myself on a production line now .. :) and I did up the first "new top" to the stack of chips my friend gave me to use .. :)

I'm alone in the office today (Sally LOVES working alone) ... so it will be a busy day .. and then I get to go for my first week of training in over a year .. :) Hoping it's like riding a bike .. lol lol lol .. I'm looking forward to being able to come in ,, do the class ... and leave for home .. or visit .. :) I'm not ready to step into being an instructor yet .. but I will eventually .. just not ready for it yet .. I'll be assisting my "old boss" from when I ran the program .. :) Already told hubby I wouldn't be home between work and puppy club .. it's about a 45 minute drive from work to puppy club and I'm HOPING to get out by 5 .. if not 4:45 today .. we'll see .. :) but may have to eat on the fly tonight .. don't care .. looking forward to HAPPY !!! .. :) :) Sooo looking forward to puppy stress release .. :) I miss the people and the dogs, but not all the work .. :)

Okay -- Happy day ahead of me !!! :) Have to get myself some breakfast, and pack my lunch and get myself going ... Happy Monday to all !!!

My drive down on Friday was a windy one! In Jainesville, I thought I was going to get whipped off the road!! So glad it died down by Saturday!!

Had a nice visit with family and friends over the weekend. We didn't do much but sit, visit, and eat...lol But, today my pain is a lot worse. After only making it four hours at work Friday, I had decided to take Monday off. My coworker said I was very pale. It has just become too much for me to deal with. I almost stayed down there an extra day, but thought it best to nurse myself in my own surroundings. Came home, and slept three hours with my heating pad!

At some point tomorrow, I will be going to the grocery store to get some quick, easy meals that hubby can help prepare. He doesn't cook much, but we will see what we can come up with. Maybe, I can buy some ingredients for a homemade soup, so I can cook it up tomorrow night for the week of lunches. Not sure what kind of appetite I will have though....

Enjoy your week! I'm looking forward to Tuesday....LOL

Crazy - Good luck with your Dad and hope he cooperates with the speech therapist.

Sally - Enjoy your creative time, and I hope you can spend time with your DH.

We always celebrate Valentine's day late. Mom and I both prefer to wait until the 15th when everything is half price. It tastes twice a good on sale! I went to Walgreens on Friday to pick up meds and they already had things marked down 70%! And still had Dove! So I had to get some more (for Mom) and will deliver those today.

That's my goal for today! Now my only stumbling block is working BEHAVING MYSELF into that goal! Always something.

Sally: I know you'll have fun w/Mom! Enjoy relaxing, too!

Wahoo! Puppy club. I know you'll like that too.

Sunday – went out to dinner w/Mom and Dad to a new place. That is a breakthrough, because Mom DID IT. She gets set in her ways and doesn’t like trying something new. But she did it!

For once, a quiet day!
