Welcome! come on in and look around!

I am blessed with being allowed to live on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula, WA state. We have large lavender farms here, and a once a year Lavender Festival and Quilt Show. My passion in life is making quilts for kids ages 8-18 who are battling cancer. Once in a while, I even get to make a quilt for myself!! WOO HOO!! Since joining SparkPeople, I have noticed not only weight and inches disappear, but my attitude and readiness to laugh has definitely improved.

OH MY on the Dr's refusing Obamacare,,,,,,perhaps they'll change that name ! Yeah I can see the Dr's NOT wanting to take it,, or anything in connection to gov pay,, so SLOW though I do also have medicare (WHEN DID I GET OLD???) and they pay quite quickly. Well that's been my own personal experience,,, I had blue cross/blue shield which ,, well was it cause Dr's wait and TURN BLUE waiting for approval which is often DENIED ! GRRRR I could NOT WAIT to get rid of them !! I had quite a bit a week for that,, OH MY !! They LOVED my $$$, but not when I was sick. They were of course reimbursed for the medical expenses from the car accident,,,,, little did we know the accident would continue to affect us as the years went by. We had one of those lawyers who must of graduated at the BOTTOM of the class !! He was DEMANDING we go to CONN from here,, to sign some papers because he wanted to see us in person. We were in way to much pain (it was almost 2 yrs after the accident) to travel,, plus I just FLATELY REFUSED to EVER step into CONN again !! UGHERS 1!! If only we knew than what we know now !!! We DID KNOW to REFUSE to close the case, but he INSISTED and we were WAY TO STRESSED to restart. So we did it,,,,, than 5 yrs later, we both had kept going downhill,,, we landed up using power chairs to get around. I had been 3 months in bed,, other than to take ALL the effort I could to use the ladies,, and grab something QUICK from the fridge. THANKFULLY I had a housecleaner who also did my shopping.

OH GAL you get SOAKED to the SKIN of the SKIN !!!

How
do you all handle all those clouds and RAIN??? I DETEST RAINY Days if there are 2 or more of them in a row,, or even a few days out of the week,, which of COURSE happens here in the Spring,,, and again the Fall. POORAH Izzah ! In the winter the sun is much lower in the sky, so the sun shines across my whole place ! In the summer it's highah,,, so it only shines on the window stills. She has NO clue of course,,, she's a CAT,,, I am on the transfer list to move to the harbor side of the building,, so PURDY !!!

Thanks for the encouragement! I fear that the 5K is misleading in that I walked it the entire way. I have regained weight from the 250lbs to which I had reduced, my lumbar is worn out and sends pain signals that I can't over look and I have not done enough serious cardio rehab since the surgery that will soon be a year ago. I have made a commitment to get "my wind" back, I am slowly losing the regained weight and thinking about taking more action on the back pain.

I'm almost done with packing and taping up EVERYTHING that's not ABSOLUTELY not 100% necessary. UGHERS ever been so made you want to chew someone ears off?? It'd do NO GOOD cause he'd have to CARE, he doesn't. If he has them,,, very dependable source, , and doesn't report them RIGHT off,,,, it's in our lease it's eviction time, but I've watched many get a lawyer and fight it. So they end up on probation flEx amount period of time. They know how to twist things to their advantage!!!!+

How Are you and Benny and of course H and D?
