Early Birthday celebrations!

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Okay my sweet friends!
I went to the chiropractor Saturday morning, she fixed my back and my knee and massaged some of those pesky stress knots away-Thanks Doc!
I hired someone to do my yard for a change!
While he mowed I took that huge zucchini cored and shredded it and made Zucchini bread with part whole wheat flour and brown sugar. I modify my recipes to make them somewhat healthier. I ended up with 5 loaves, so at my party I gave one to each of my children who live away from home. So far the verdict was -it's good!
I told Steven that yes indeed, his wife was right! Mom would like a new vacuum cleaner! Woohoo, I am now the owner of a Shark Rocket-professional sweeper! So far I used it and it seems as if it will work. I have to believe that! After 16 years my second hand Rainbow vac kicked the bucket-litterally it sprung a leak and several of the attachments were breaking. My Aaron figured I pd about $50.00 a year for it-matching the brand new Oreck he had bought for him and his wife several years ago.
Steven fixed my lawn mower-it had a clogged air filter!!!! Why didn't I guess that, with all this GA red dirt flying around. So that is working, what a relief I really can't afford another new one-that one is two years old.
He also took Erik to the storage unit while his wife and I were out shopping. They brought home Erik's tool chest-Erik is in seventh heaven. He found his drill bits, drilled a hole at the end of the crack in the brace-Steven says this is sound logic, it will block the trajectory of the crack stop it from growing. BTW poor Erik wrote me a one word note with a design to let me know what was wrong with his brace. I know where we have to work on his improvement now "CRAGAH" does not spell crack, I was so confused and thought he wanted me to go to Kroger's...oh well, he tried emoticon
My Birthday party yesterday was nice. Only one person was missing my DIL, Stephanie, is in Boston on a business trip. I had a nice big salad with tomatoes from my garden, grilled chicken tenders, corn on the cob and baked beans. Then we had a banana nut cake with stabilized whipped cream and blue berries, raspberries and tiny mint leaves for decorations-no horrible decorators icing ( I used to decorate cakes-that stuff is evil!)
Here's a picture of my cake my darling daughter made for me...

Today, I went to Mass with my friends. Before church I picked up a bit, planned a simple breakfast including zucchini bread, small individual omelettes made to order for three of my friends, Erik and me. We had a nice visit, and my one friend helped me a lot in the kitchen, even Erik helped by starting the coffee pots and slicing the zucchini bread!
Tomorrow I will work, since I really didn't do much of anything yesterday or today-picking out a vacuum cleaner doesn't really count... emoticon nor learning to use it. emoticon
So my dears, for my Birthday I slowed down-not a bad idea. Now to begin my new year-tomorrow night, Steven & Kim and Erik are taking me out to my favorite Italian restaurant...guess I'll make light choices for the day!

    It was fun to read this cheerful report, but I must say it made me a little hungry, with all the talk of food I really love--zucchini bread, banana nut bread, grilled chicken tenders, corn on the cob, and that lovely berry-topped birthday cake! It's a good thing it's time for lunch as I'm writing this! Otherwise, I'd be in serious trouble! Anyway, keep having fun with your sweet family! You all seem so very close.

    What a great weekend you had! So glad that you got the chance to just enjoy yourself. Had to laugh that you wanted a vacuum. I remember when I asked Jay for a wheel barrel many years ago (40 to be exact) he thought I was nuts. Well, I'm still using it!

I like the sound of your zucchini bread recipe and that cake looks so yummy!

My GF makes zucchini bread. It is delicious but I've never made it. You would never know zucchini is in it. Sounds like a great way to sneak veggies into the kids.

That sounds like one great vacuum!! Sharks are supposed to be fantastic. Your kids must really love you!! Steven sounds like a prince!

I love that cake!!! I'm not even into cake but that is beautiful!!

You certainly know how to celebrate!!

Please let me on the Merry-go-round and off the Roller coaster

Friday, August 15, 2014

Okay, so as my eldest son says "you do it to yourself mom, why do you schedule so much in one week"
Last week the painters began by patching, moving furniture away from walls and moving stuff in general in the four rooms being painted. I had already removed stuff from on top of the mantle, the desk, etc all over except my coffee pot and Erik's in the kitchen. It was pointed out to me that Cuckoo would have to come down Monday morning and my bookcase needed to be emptied so it didn't break when the moved it. So I put all the books under my bedroom window (not a smart move)
I ended the week with Erik at his brothers which made the disorder in the house less stressful for him-not for me.
Saturday I spent the afternoon with friends at the parish picnic, I limited my food and wine to reasonable amounts and mostly good choices from what I could.
Sunday: Mass, breakfast with friends at Papa Jack's (pancake), went to the library for a Prayer shawl knitting book and some novels, dinner at Steven's & brought Erik home.
Monday after breakfast I put away the coffee pots, took the Cuckoo clock down and removed a few more things I noticed. I suddenly realized that the alarm tech was going to be here and he wouldn't be able to access the window in my closet where I put all the paintings and wall decor on a table in front of it-so I had to clear that off, then I looked and realized I had to clear a path through the books-what a pain in my back. The alarm guy came to re-connect the alarm to all the windows, the painters came and started covering furniture in clusters, and banished Erik and I from the main living space in my house. Erik went to Glancy-not so bad for him, but I was stuck in my office with my knitting, a book and a computer-I did NOT work on financials as I should have the mess in here is overwhelming with stuff from the kitchen, living room, dining room and sunroom crowding in around me. Erik and I ate lunch and dinner OUT and it wasn't healty or logged. No walking, I should have.
Tuesday we made a space for Erik to eat at the table, moving the blinds and plastic Pedro had put on it. I ate a banana with peanut butter made coffee, then put the coffee pot back in my office. Erik went off with Sarah. More time in my office but Pedro left his crew finishing up while he went and got supplies for his next job. By 11:30 I was getting "Miss, where goes this?" so I went out to see my fully repainted rooms, the guys put all the furniture back where I wanted it after sweeping and damp mopping the floors with only a few streaks. When Pedro got back he hung my big picture over the fire place, my tapestry in the dining room and the roll shades in the sunroom and kitchen, I paid him and began dusting stuff and rehanging-I'm almost there.
Wednesday I got out of the house and did the grocery shopping. Then I put more stuff up. I still have some to go. Oh and I finished the second book of the week. My back was killing me so I didn't do much, except get an appointment for Saturday with my chiropractor. My bug man came. Forget the lawn I called the second person to give me an estimate on the walkway after checking his references-he didn't answer. Made a dinner, salad, baked sweet potatoes and chicken breasts-but I over cooked them-too dry for Erik and me. emoticon
Thursday I went for a walk-early. Then I worked a little around the house. Erik needed help with his exercises Sarah gave him since she had surgery and will not be back till Monday.
Had a message from the landscaper, he's mowing my lawn for me Saturday, Went to the eye doctor, got my eyes dialated and went out to dinner with my two sons and DIL. Again, not the best choices but I tried to watch the amount I ingested.
Today I'm going to Mass, on the way I have to stop at the grocery store and see if I can fix my mistake-I bought Erik liquid stevia instead of the tablet form he got in Europe-we're out. Then the man from LZBoy will come to fix my two wingback recliners and the back of my couch. I hope to get more stuff out of my office, the garage, my master closet and bedroom.
Goal today finish replacing books on bookcase, walking and back exercises. Maybe get some of my tins back on the kitchen cabinets. OH and make a healthy dinner.
Tomorrow: Chiropractor and my birthday party at Steven & Kims....grilled chicken, large salad, corn on the cob and banana nut cake with lightly sweetened whip cream in place of frosting.
My favorites except the chicken-but I have to try to eat well even if it is my party. I will be celebrating until Monday the 18th when I'll be 66 at around 11:56PM.
Okay not active but stressed, looking back I could see where I could have fit at least a few short walks-I'll do better next week.

    I can't help comparing my energy level with yours, and let me tell you, I really come up short! You can pack so much activity into such a short time! I know how hectic (and maybe disturbing) it is to have the kind of work done on your house where you can't live in it as you normally do. I'm sure yours and Erik's lives were pretty disrupted, but it sounds like you handled it very well, and you're being rewarded with freshly painted rooms and a nice, clean environment. I hope things calm down a bit for you next week so that you can get your walks in. And happy birthday! You sure do deserve a fun celebration after all this!

Saturday, August 09, 2014

Monday was Erik's second day with Erik and according to him, she works him like a dog! emoticon Sarah is good for Erik as he accepts her corrections and his trying to do his best-show off for her. I think the walking up the driveway Saturday and Sunday had something to do with proving to all what he's able to do when he puts his mind to it.
Monday, while Erik was gone, I went and did errands and got my emissions checked on the car-my birthday is around the corner, funny 66 doesn't sound old anymore. I got my walk in before he got up. Worked on taking stuff down for the painters and finishing up my prayer shawls-one from the July stash buster.
Tuesday, Got my walk in, had my granddaughters and went to the pool with them, then we came home and had lunch with uncle Erik who was back with Sarah while the girls were getting dressed. We had chinese take-out when Aaron came to get Natalie and Abigail-my Rupunzel and Snow White. After they left, more removal for painters.
Wednesday: went for a walk before Erik got up, after he and Sarah left I went and got the sticker for the license plates, then bought yarn for a new prayer shawl for my SIL. I came home and got the grocery shopping sone, made supper, and took more stuff down and put it in my closet (ugh) and my garage...I guess I'll have cleaning next week and rearranging, rehanging etc.
Thursday: Window installers finally finished my installation-not their fault Home Depot couldn't get it straight-I needed two more windows -not one. The second landscaper came and I'm waiting for his estimate to finish the back yard by the patio and Erik's room and create a riverbed walk way with pavers strategically placed for Erik's stride. The first estimate put me in sticker shock. I called the alarm company to get them to come out and reconnect my alarm. No walk during the day, walked a little whilest talking on the phone.
Oh and I started my red, white and blue prayer shawl for my SIL.
Friday: Painters showed after 10 AM as planned, worked in the morning to clear off more surfaces so furniture could be moved w/o breakage. While they patched and caulked I emptied a bookcase-didn't think about that ahead of time...oops! Got mowing in when the grass dried from the rain that impeded my morning walk. Did walk while talking to one of my SILs on the phone.
Sarah did not come today, she has another job and has asked them to alter her schedule to allow her to work w/ Erik the four days. She can work afternoons and evenings for the hotel. She called me up and told me that they had messed her schedule up so she asked to talk to the manager in the office, and told her that she MUST have Mon. Tues. Weds & Fri mornings free. Then she asked her,"how would you like it if you needed someone to transport your daughter and they couldn't because their other boss was preventing that ability. She got Tuesday of next week off-but we may or may not see her Friday depending on her reaction to the anesthesia for Thursday morning's surgery-we'll see.
Oh and my eldest son, Steven and wife came and got Erik and took him home for the weekend-so if the weather would improve I'll go to the Parish Picnic and have a great time w/o worrying about Erik at all! Woohoo!

I'm so sorry I missed another call from you. I think we were just outside and then didn't get the message till too late. Maybe we can connect Sunday or Monday.

Monumental change in Erik!!!

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Okay, it's monumental to me. Erik refused to walk up and down my driveway saying it was scary. Well for a while now he's been using the incline setting on the treadmill at Transitional Therapy and it paid off.
Saturday, Erik wanted to go to the neighbor across the street's garage sale , but I was already there with my DIL. Steven told his brother he was busy and couldn't/wouldn't accompany him as he was busy doing something for mom. I looked up from talking with Miss Jerry and who do I see walking across the street-unassisted.... Erik! Now going back down the neighbor's and my driveway he used his SIL's shoulder for support-she said he barely touched her most of the way. Yesterday was trash day and I brought down the recycle bin early in the day, but I was waiting for cooler to go get the trashcan as the trash is picked up later. I was fixing dinner and heard Erik go into the garage, he didn't come right back in like he does when he puts something in the recycle bin and I heard the garage door opening and closing so I wondered what he was up to. Well I went out when the dinner was at a "can be left" point and he said "I did it! Garbage can all the way down...very hard!" I was amazed, I figured he got the going up hill down, but I did not expect him to come down on his own-hauling a huge trashcan no less! This is amazing to me! Thank you God!
Thanks for listening friends.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon . emoticon emoticon emoticon
FYI new friends, Erik had a traumatic brain injury in a motorcycle accident four years ago. We were told he'd have a lot of progress the first year, maybe some the following year and it would taper off! This is why I'm blogging. Thanks Janet552 for pointing it out-Key Info!

    Ginie this is AWESOME news, tell ERIC he is amazing. Very well done from Pat in Maine.
My stepfather was injured under a steel beam when the crane line snapped and he was in hospital on a bed that was tuned every 6 hours. That was for 4 years. My mother met him in hospital and she befriended him and married him. He walked with an iron brace on one leg and years later he found a surgeon to help him walk again. How great it is when love and devotion can bring about such motivation to heal. I am so very proud of both of you. I hope the healing will continue, such a GREAT blog. Thanks for sharing.

Slipped up Saturday, starting over on Sunday.

Sunday, August 03, 2014

Yesterday I started my day very early at church for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, followed by Mass, then a garage sale. During the garage sale a man asked if we had a bike I said yes, but it was still at the storage unit, he wanted to know what kind it was so I went to my computer to try and pull up a picture-computer froze up and I had to shut it down again. I never logged in to SP, facebook or e-mail accounts.
While managing the garage sale Erik would periodically come out and check on me, try to communicate with customers, but I knew he was bored so I told him to call his eldest brother. That call ended in an invitation to DS's for dinner. I walked in to DIL's kitchen and asked if she had veggies-I ate cauliflower, carrots, cucumbers, and broccoli -some with cheese dip emoticon I also ate a few ounces of Amish cheese-I'd only had coffee, and a cheese, lettuce sandwich all day and I was hungary. Dinner was pizza-3 large pieces-more cheese-oops cholesterol, oops logging, oops walking-oops tracking...So this morning I'm starting my streak again!!!
I'll get this right one day emoticon

    Well, nobody's perfect. It sounds like you ate relatively sensibly and you were busy all day. Plus, you just plan to start anew. I think you are doing great!! emoticon I will too -- my diet has been way too rich lately. I eat within my calorie range, carb range and protein range but over the fat range. That ends today!!
