Well we have power, many in our province don't. Heavy rains and super strong winds overnight made a huge mess in many places. So am thankful we have normality LOL around here. Well 2 sections of our fence fell but other than that seems okay. Oh I didn't check the roof yet! Oh well will think positive!
Saw this today and thought wow she has nailed it on the head. What great inspiration!
I am doing well at better portions and way way less sugar. I have said to myself- Self, you are worth all the package... you have the walking challenge down pat, over 10,000 steps every single day since April!!!! ( those that know my pain know I am proud of that!). So now I am honestly going to do healthy less sugar wayyyyyy less sugar till new years eve. starting tomorrow the 23rd that will be 100 days till years end, which happens to be my birthday.
I have talked and written to myself that no matter who is here, what they are eating STOP and THINK do you really need this. If it is going to be a binge type situation ( which I don't often do, I am more a grazer) then have 2 bites and that's it! So when we are out, I will not order dessert, I rarely do cos they are so $$, but I won't cos it is a waste to have just 2 bites and hubby doesn't get dessert so can't share. LOL
He did say yesterday when we were out for breakfast, I noticed you putting your fork down at every bite. I hadn't even noticed myself, I was eating slower cos I am having super hot flashes lately. I thought I had had them, and was on the down turn, but the past week, I can be fine, then whew, sweating like I need a towel. Oh well that too will pass.
Okay off to physio today, then hubby has to call about a part to put in the bed of truck for 5th wheel ours that we have don't fit. and sighhhhhhhhhh he is going to have to go check the fence. The 2 sections that blew down are in the back so not good, kids and such can enter the yard and dad will not feel safe. if it was on our neighbours side wouldn't be so bad but oh well. What can you do but fix it.
HUGS all have a safe day and a healthy one!

Had a good but quick trip over to PEI. I have to say it is so beautiful over there. We didn't do any tourist stuff, just drove around and went out to eat and eat...... sigh
Took dad to see our old house, and then the one we rented when we first move there when I was 12. Drove by some other spots, took him to see how the town has grown. We also went by our land that we own over there, Need to get it re surveyed as think the neighbours are encroaching, easy to do with an empty lot that has been empty for years.
I walked down to the waters edge that was at the motel we stayed at, then in the am, walked down to the main part of town. I did get my 10,000 plus steps in.
Dad walked into the door of the motel office and fell. He has fallen both times we have taken him somewhere, I worry when he is out alone every morning. But that is what it is, as he wont stop going till he can't. THen that bring issues of me having to go out and get his coffee every am, fine when I don't have to clean the snow of the vehicles.
I am so far off any healthy plan and am knowing I have to get back to it. I have gained just a bit, but worry about diabetes, not in my family, but I am going to bathroom an inordinate amt for the amt I am drinking. So told myself today............
then in the next breath I think, well we are going away for 5 days as long as the rails come in in time for the truck. Also then I think oh MAN we are having company come first part of October. I am so not looking forward to this. We don't have the room and I am not the type for la di da company that I haven't met, cousin or not! LOL She will be on an air mattress ( off the floor type) upstairs in my exercise room and my uncle will be downstairs with dad. So we have to move dads area around, get a box spring on floor then buy a mattress to put down. Geesh. and dad is super untidy and his brother is total opposite. Here is an example, dad doesn't even flush if he pees.... my uncle - his wife taught him to vacumn only one way so it doesn't show marks. He washes his dishes as he uses them, dad doesn't even put the beer tops in the garbage or put his grape stems in compost. all on counter waiting for someone....... ( me) Mum did every single thing, my aunt did nothing she insisted on help and complete tidy. mum was super clean and tidy but did it all.
So. I am a mix of both, and with the pain have gotten slower at keeping it tidy, it is clean but not always picked up. I am dreading this cousin visiting. I have never met her, know she has money and is snotty, from dad and mum and others saying so. Also she wants to see stuff while here, hmmm sure she said she wouldn't allow her dad to travel alone. Okay but it is only on one plane, and off at other end. Small airport here. Oh well only a week I would think and we will be fine. I am just not in a great mood today, and have stuff I want done, hubby has stuff he hast o get done and just whew and blah.
This too shall pass and I am thankful that this is the most of my worries - and those are nothing really! LOL

Well still getting shocks like electric zaps around my L outer knee and top of my foot. I will have to up the gabapentin to 3 tomorrow.... I hope that is as far as I have to go. Strange the rest is doing not too bad but just those areas.
Tired today, still waking too early, some days can sleep others not. This weekend seemed hectic as I was dog sitting dd dogs at their house. So I got up walked allie, fed her, put dads socks on and went down and fed the 2 of them, let them out and stayed with them for 2 hrs. then later went back down. Wasn't a busy or hard day but just diff and tired me out.
This is a busy month it seems. Dad has an apt at hospital Tues, which we will take him. Then we hope to go to PEI for 2 days to show him our old house and all the changes in the town. Then I have 3 days of apointments, not long phsyio, dentist and mammogram but still somewhere to go. Then we want to go to the trailer, and then go around the cabot trail for 3 days with our new truck that pulls our 5th wheel. We bit the bullet while the prices were low and lots of incentives and got a truck that will pull. The day we get back dad has dr apt. he can go to that one himself or dd can go with him for the drive.
NOw I am going to go and take allie for walk then get ready for bed. went to library and have a few new books. I need some down - me time just to relax....

Just a short note as I need my bed. Meds aren't ereally working yet and we had to attend a function for dad and other WW2 vets. It was the first day of WW2 75 years ago so they had a commemorative due for 13 of the WW2 vets in Halifax that were able to attend. Ministers from Ottawa came and officiated and gave out pins and scrolls. Was pretty good. Someone offered to take a pic of hubby, dad and myself. Not the best pic as my sciatica was pretty bad by then, but I don't take good pics so pleased with this one.
Off to bed. night all.
