My Thursday

Thursday, October 16, 2014

Hello, this was my day to go to town so I got in more activity than usual. I went to get flowers for my great Aunt funeral. Then I went to my weight watchers meeting and I gained 1.8 pounds, but I new I would. Then I went to my teeth cleaning appointment and after that I went to the Nursing home to visit another Aunt that has Alzheimer and another friend there that I am helping to get out and her own apartment. She gets discouraged real easy when I got there at noon she was in bed in her pj's. I ask her if she wanted to go to eat and she brightened up and got ready while I visited with my Aunt Faye. Mary and I went out to eat Pizza because that is her favorite. She told me that she had heard that she was going to get to move in two weeks. She has nothing as her family put her in the nursing home two years ago and basically never came back. She qualifies for a new government program that allows I think $2400 to pay deposits and first months rent and what ever is left over buy furniture. To help people like her get out of the Nursing home. So we went to a used furniture store and found a small kitchen table and two chairs for $100.00 and a really nice love seat for $185.00. We called the lady in charge of the program and she said that she would come see her tomorrow and look and see if she could get her a better deal. Then we went to a thrift store and found some curtain rods, 3 small shelves, clothes hangers and 2 small trash cans. Then I took her back to the nursing home and went to see another Aunt in the hospital. Aunt Billie she is the only living sibling of my mother it was touch and go with her for most of the week but she was awake and could talk with me. I walked down 3 flights of stairs as the elevator didn't seem to be working. Got home to feed my Husband and Grandson, Blaze. My husband told me my oldest cousin was put in the hospital he has real bad diabetes and had blacken out. Then I blew my diet by making whole wheat funnel cakes. Hopefully I walked enough to off set the two I ate. LOL. Tomorrow is my Aunt Della's funeral, of course I have known her my entire life and have went to Church with her for the past 35 or so years. She was such a sweet and caring Lady she always had a smile and encouraging word to say to all of us. She had lots of troubles and trials in her life but she didn't get bitter she only got better. I hope to be more like her. ruthie

    Ruthie Hi!
    You have such a big heart. You don't have to be like anyone else, but yourself. Because that's good enough. I really blew my Weight Watchers , but it's more like 8 weeks and gained 9 pounds. I have twisted bones in my back that are pinching on my nerves and muscles. that's why I don't really answer everyone's blogs anymore. I started going to physical therapy 3 times a week and that's been helping. You sound like you have really had your hands full, trying to please everyone that is ill, and your family. You need to take the time out to rest, and eat right. otherwise you know you will get stressed or run down. I should talk about advise when I have blown it lately! Ha, ha. That funnel cake sounded good, but whole wheat didn't make it healthier! maybe if you just put frozen fruit on it instead of pie filling, powder sugar, or what ever we do. I say go for it, you deserve it. I ate out of pain, and used the excuse that I was running a fever to cool down I practically in a two day period ate a whole box of ww's ice cream. At least I am not where I once was from my car accident of 175, now at 147 lbs. I haven't exercised at all, other than I am going to try to do those exercises of 3 rep's this week end. I am having a HARD TIME WALKING EVEN TWO BLOCKS. aND WHEN I GO GROCERY SHopping I have to hold on to one of those carts like an old person,. which I guess I am now of 661/2, but don't look it. Take care, lol, eva
