It really wasn't. I had only 6 hours of sleep for the third night in a row. I think I'm going to take a sleeping pill tonight.

I have had only 6 hours sleep. I am in a funk. I put my cheerios in the microwave. Not that appetizing!

Deb, here is a link to the 'dirty' dozen and 'clean' 15. The first all the foods that contain the most pesticides and should be bought organic if at all possible. The second are the ones that are recognized as safe grown conventionally. This is very helpful in determining where to spend your food dollars. Everyone knows about apples, but very few know that celery is in the dirty dozen. I was surprised. www.ewg.org/foodnews/?tag=2012Foodne

Good Morning!

Sheryl .... We have a huge farm close by that does a fruit / veggie stand on Saturday mornings on the square. It's great food but he is VERY costly! emoticon
I can't afford most of his produce so I have to try and rely on the organic section at the grocers.
I do try to get stuff grown as local as possible and always wash everything.... emoticon

Covegirl .... It still sounds like a lot of fun! emoticon

GINI ! .... Two places today! I am so very glad to have you back...... emoticon


Dad and I am tootling along and making changes as we go. New style of life, LOTS of adjustments, but so far it's a good thing! emoticon

Next best thing, know your farmer, we have farmers markets here, unfortunately summer is tough on food crops here in south Florida, but other parts of our state are producing. Learn where it comes from, who grows it, what growing methods they use, most of the farmers are happy to give you this information, in fact if there is something you haven't tried before they will see that you get a taste. Love my farmers, I can't garden where I live, but this is my alternative.

I had a large vegetable garden at my other home, but we downsized a few years ago. I grow a few herbs in the ground, but I have to grow my tomatoes in pots on my deck. I can't grow anything else, other than flowers. sigh...

Sounds interesting COVEGIRL, I love anything to do with all kinds of plants. My main interest is edible gardening and herbology. I was certified many years ago and love making my own medicine.

The Demonstration Garden is a garden planted with All America selections of annuals and vegetables. It was planted and maintained by Indiana Master Gardeners. We are there at the fair to answer general questions about gardening and the plants in the garden. we aren't really demonstrating anything. emoticon

Hi Deb and everyone else. I just rejoined this team. In the spring I had to withdraw from many of my teams as I was overwhelmed but am on a steady keel now and am glad to be back. I can't wait to get to know and remeet all of you and spend some time with SF here.

Covegirl .... That sounds interesting....

Are you doing the demonstrating? I wouldn't be good at that at all. My poor plants are on there own once they are in the ground! I know just enough to pull the weeds and water them and I'm not real sure if I'm doing that right or not..... emoticon

Deb, you are doing all you can. You made the only decision possible, now your visits will be the new memories. Unfortunately, some people get angry with this disease, it is sad, but true. Remember to keep yourself number one, only then can you take care of those you love. Loose the guilt, you don't need it.

I wish I could have had that kind of time with my mother but unlike your family members, my mother refused to move in with us. When we took her home from the hospital last month the doctors said that she needed to stay with someone until she was settled some where. We took her to our/our daughters house and attempted to follow doctors orders. Remember, we sold our house to our daughter and her husband......

She (mom) had a terrible temper tantrum in front of the children screaming at me, our daughter, screaming about the children, openly arguing with my daughter who was trying to defend the family and her children, and did everything (including) threaten us all if we didn't get her out of there and back into her apartment. Our daughter had to remove THIER children from THIER home until we could get mom packed and removed.

They now live in the house and we live in the RV. Mom can NOT reside with our daughter and her children again and I now have no place for her.

So the only option available is a full time Nursing Facility. YES, I feel guilty every time I see her, think about her, or pray on all of this! I cry about it and get frustrated about it but she left me NO choice......

I'm sorry if this conversation seems combative, I really do not mean for it to be, I just get so frustrated trying to defend the decisions I have had to make...... emoticon

That is so true, people do not realize what a stressful job it is. Not to mention giving up your own life to care for them. I am thankful I gave my time for my mother and aunt and I would have been just eat up with guilt if I had not, but a little help would have been nice too

The reason for it is sad, but the outcome for you is good! Glad to see you are moving, sometimes it isn't the food at all, but the movement! Good for you, I believe it will get easier as time goes by.

Sheryl I HATE seeing small sleepy towns blow up into major cities and with Disney located there it probably buried your sweet little town quickly! I'm so sorry!

I am not concentrating as much on food lately and I am trying not to eat and nibble at night although I failed miserably last night...... I think it has a lot to do with all the walking I am getting in as well. Moms room is all the way to the end of the hallway so I am forced to walk from the parking lot and down the long hall every time I go to visit. If she needs anything then I walk for that too. Now add climbing up and down out of the RV and you have a good little work out for my sedentary body emoticon

Yesterday I attended the Florida Small Farm Conference over in Kissimmee. Kissimmee is where my mothers family is from, so I got to visit our family cemetery, say hello to my grandparents and other relatives. For those of you that don't know, Orlando is not where Disney build his magic kingdom, it was Kissimmee, this sleepy little town of my childhood is now a bustling city, the location of the conference is where we used to go to rodeo's and have family reunions. I know change is good, but too much change is not.

Well I got up this morning feeling blah and a little irritated emoticon
because I really wanted to hibernate in bed as long as possible but my brain always refuses to cooperate with my wishes!

I climbed on the scales this morning because I really couldn't stand the idea of waiting until Monday...... I am already down 5 pounds! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Too bad it would have been fun. I use my crockpot a lot in the motorhome, but we do also have a gas stove inside and a camp stove and a grillfor outside, almost what we have at home but smaller. lol. Let me know when you are ready and we will try this again.

You could get your own oats, steel cut is best and flax seed to make your own, more nutrients and less chemicals. My DH doesn't like steel cut so he uses regular oats and still does the microwave. I am not sure what the microwave does to the nutrients in food, the only think we use ours for is baked potatoes and DH oatmeal. I will probably not replace it when it goes this time.

Hmmmmm... can't make this one.. "Better Oats Oatfit" is my daily breakfast... it's an instant oatmeal I get at Costco it has flaxseed in it and fewer calories than quaker. Only 100 calories/pk. That would put it in the processed food category emoticon Sorry.

Good Morning team,

Happy Monday! Today I am going to start anew to build myself bit by bit to a new level of fitness, with the sickness that has lasted over a month I have let myself go back to my couch potato ways. Today a new set of goals and a new chance to reach them. Let's do this, even if it is just a small goal for the week.

Feeling lazy again today. The pool at the gym has been closed for 2 wks. They are waiting for an okay from the health dept. Always something. I really miss my swimming! Don't know what I will do today.

That is the only way, DH and I have always done that, then after loading the dresser, put them in for traveling, take them out again for light moving. Good thinker your daughter!

I have been so busy the last few days I haven't been stopping by.

Deb, I hope your mom's transition to assisted living has been fairly peaceful, you know you are doing what needs to be done.

Yea Anita, not a requirement for A/C at all. I don't think anyone had them then. I just know that anyone from that area that says Florida is hot should feel the difference! Whew!

I think this summer has been so strange. One day the weather is typical summer, than we have a week of Spring or Fall like temps. I'm bummed about it.

Sheryl,
It is odd getting used to the no air conditioning or just the little window units. Used to be just opening the windows and letting the breeze blow was enough. I forgot that a/c isn't a requirement in Indiana!!! LOL.

OH boy!
Tomorrow we start packing up moms apartment. I DO NOT look forward to that invasion of her privacy.... emoticon

I wish there was another way but I have been told from just about everyone that ( IF ) I were to take her home to go through her stuff, she would sit down and refuse to leave and ( IF ) I had her picked up then she might get hurt or set up a terrible public show of noise and anger! emoticon

So the plan is to box each dresser and label all the contents so that we know where everything is that she might want. I plan to put all the bedroom boxes up front in the storage so that we can get to them easier. She seems to have most of her cherished goodies in the bedroom.
I just pray she settles down and in her mind, forgives me for the betrayal she feels I have committed.... emoticon While trying to keep her safe

DLYNN113, yes it has not helped at all. Funny enough, in the 70's my DH and I loaded up our 3 kids and went to Indiana for a year to help his brother with his business. At that time we left FL during the summer to an average temp of 88 degrees, which is how I remember FL from when I was a child. I have never been so hot as we were there, temps in the 100's for weeks at a time, the 90's at other times. There was lots of rain, but to this FL gal it was miserable. No ocean breeze or shade around the houses (what is up with that anyway?) and worse of all no A/C
