Busy nine days

Saturday, July 19, 2014

I am so glad this is all behind me. LOL

Went to the the Cities to get a load of lumber. Got home and worked on inventory Wed.
Thurs....set up the first Rummage sale for mom etc for Friday and Sat.
Tues...a run to Pierre to deliver frames to the store.
Wed...down with headache. on set up for another Rummage sale for Friday and Sat.

Got home at 9 pm on Saturday after tearing down all the tables and getting items not sold to go to the Church for their fund drive. On Sunday I will pick up the items we are bringing home for the next Rummage sale in oh...maybe a year or two. emoticon I don't go to them and I don't like having them . LOL

My health goals are so far off track right now with all the hours on the road or sitting on my backside at Moms place but I should be back on track starting Sunday. I will get my exercise in again by the looks of my garden. :)

    Maybe we should ALL declare a Let's Start Over Day! We've been up to the cabin fishing for three days and all you want to do up in that mountain air is eat, eat, eat!!!

Glad that's out of your hair now, gf. I'd make the next one five years up the road if it were me! Hope it was worth it.

    Sounds like you need a vacation but the garden needs attention and you always can find plenty to fill your days. Take care. The heat is here!

Down and out, and back up

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Tues, I had 500 frames loaded, and took off for Pierre to set up a display at a store. It went great. I left here at 5 am and was home that night around 7 pm.

Wed. morning at about 3 am, I woke up with muscle spasms again in my neck and shoulders and a raging migraine. I finally stopped vomiting at about 9 pm. I have been having so many migraines this Summer that I think it is time to go back to my team of specialist in the Cities to see if they can help me again. I have been working with them since my accident in '97.

I got a full nights sleep now last night and feel great. Time to get back to putting up my mother, sister, and daughters Rummage sale for Fri. and Sat. This time, I made them clear off two of my tables for ME. LOL I had twelve tables sat up that we use in our shows and they filled them. The last two sales this Summer ended up being for them because Mom and Bren sold their homes and bought a ranch together in town. Combining two homes meant selling a lot of items and furniture. My daughter had so much she needed to sell that my Grandson has outgrown. It left NO room for me. Not this time. My other sister decided to bring in items from her place but I told her...bring tables. I am in on this sale and using my cleared tables. emoticon

I am so off track right now for eating healthy and doing structured exercise. The day after a migraine, my appetite is nil. I am thirsty so the best I can seem to do is drink Ensure or Boost till my stomach settles down completely. Next week should be a lot quieter. All I need to do is finish inventory and then on the property again.

    That's ALL you have to do? You are dreaming and I do know better. Glad you stood your ground with the tables. If you want to display your items, you need space too.

    This may seem like a dumb question, but since I know next to nothing about migraines, if you're so thirsty after them, could it be that dehydration sometimes brings them on? Or are you dehydrated from upchucking so much? Does the weather affect them? Been weird this year and you said you've had then often... Hope they leave you along for awhile now.

GOOD FOR YOU with the tables! I'm proud of you for stepping up and taking care of YOU! That's a HUGE deal! Really!

I got it in today. LOL

I carried the first 53 boxes of inventory up from the basement and after taking a count and pictures of it...carried out to the enclosed trailer. At first I could step into the trailer from the ground and have the box in hand. By the end of the day, I needed to set the box in the trailer and then crawl into it. If this does not give my leg muscles a workout, I am in trouble. emoticon

Odd, with all this going up and down and in and out...I did not have any appetite all. I ate a decent breakfast and did not get one single hunger pain at all during the day. I think part of this is because I was so thirsty today. It was warm in the basement and studio and I worked up a sweat.

I will try and finish inventory tomorrow and then need to make another road trip out to Pierre to drop off some product that is being sold in a store there on consignment.

I will have to plan ahead for my meals that day and take a packed cooler for my snacks. emoticon

    You really, truly do have 6000 frames to inventory and move around? Where in the world do you put them all???

Running on empty. LOL

Thurs. ...up at 4 am and on the road to the Cities where I went to a bankruptcy auction and bought all of our deck boards. I got 100 twelve foot deck floor boards for $100. emoticon That was a savings of $5.36 a board so I am happy. Driving home, I stopped at a gas station to get some fuel and a drink. I had a Patrol officer pull in and park behind me. I was done fueling when he pulled in behind me.

Mam, do you know why I pulled you over? Pardon? You did not pull me over. I am here fueling Officer. ???? Anyway, to make a long story short...he decided I needed a CDL to pull this rented trailer. The trailer tare weight is 14,000 pounds and my pickup is 5500 pounds. You need a CDL for a combined weight of 26,001 pounds and I am way below that He also gave me a ticket for not having a CDL license and no jakebrake in my pickup. This is one ticket I will be going back into the courtroom and fighting. He impounded the trailer and the rental shop is FURIOUS. I had to load the boards into my pickup box and continue home. I owned Semis and drove over the road for 15 years by myself. I owned a HotShot and sold it a few years ago. I do know CDL laws and requirements. He kept me there for three hours. emoticon

Thurs. up at 4 am and home at 2 am. In bed at 3 am

Friday...up at 6 am so I could go into my Moms and sisters and finish setting up everything for their rummage sale . I had to finish putting out all of my daughters things also. I opened the doors at 9 am but people were already showing up at 8. I was open until 7 pm and sold a lot of their items. It was a good day. Mom made me Supper and I got home at 8 pm. I spent the rest of the evening getting MY things together for the Sat. sale . I was in bed at midnight and up at 6 am.

Sat...rain! Back to bed for awhile as I could not do the rummage sale. There was no room for walking in the garage unless items could be set outside on the driveway. I did open at 11 am until 5 pm.

We will have another rummage sale next weekend.

Now on Sunday, time to move inventory from our basement to a new room in our shop. I have about 6000 frames to move, sort , do an inventory count on, and update for our laser business. Going to be a long day.

The scale is messing with me again. It is a new digital WW scale and I can step on it and get off and step on it again and there is a difference of anywhere from three ozs to three pounds! This scale will have to go back to Target if I can find my receipt.

I have not been logging my food this past four days but have made sure that I am making smart choices. I stayed away from fast food while on the road. I stopped and bought fruit, and Ensure to drink. My big meal was from Subway and a turkey, black forest ham sandwich with no dressings.

I am FEELING thinner, and stronger so ...even if the scale messes with me...I am thumbing my nose at it. emoticon

    Oh! Doesn't crap like that make you sooooo mad? What did this dude say when you told him you knew a thing or two about trucking? Can't wait to hear what happens. Stand your ground, girl!

I HATE rummage sales, yard sales, garage sales, etc... 'Nuf said about that!

Are you ready for your Nervous Breakdown yet?

    Wow! You have had a busy life. Sure glad you know CDL rules, it will make it easier when you go to court. Good luck there. Congrats on the good deal you got on the deck flooring.
Stay positive. That cop will get what he deserves. I totally believe in Carma.

Somehow, I always end up multi-tasking. I may end my day with a goal list of what I want to accomplish tomorrow, but things get added to it. emoticon

Today, my goal was to haul in the tables and set up for the rummage sale at my mother and sisters place for this weekend. It was just going to be me and my daughter Chianna selling things we no longer need. She had so much clothing and different items that were Riddicks that he has outgrown. Six tables worth. This left a couple of tables for me. Well, next thing you know, those tables were filled with stuff from my sister who was not going to participate because she has to work this weekend. I took in our enclosed trailer that is 18 feet long and it was packed from front to back with stuff from Chy and things I had stored for Mom and Brenda that they had no room for in their new home. I'm a little frustrated right now because I am going to be the only one working the rummage sale and there is no room for any of the items I wanted to try and sell. Tomorrow, I will go in there again and work on trying to organize it some more and price things for daughter but little sister will have to price her items.

Came home and went to my daughters and got all of her garbage loaded into the pickup to take to the landfill tomorrow after I drop my Grandson off at daycare. I did get all of ours for the week loaded this time. emoticon Then I need to find more tables or go and rent some for the rummage sale and stop and put the ad in the paper. I will spend the rest of the day working at this.

My daughter Nichole and Grandson Dominic helped and when I finally got home, she was out mowing the lawn for me so I took the time to water the flowerbeds. I cannot believe how hard and dry the ground is already.

Calories today were spot on and nutrient levels look good. Still working on finding more healthy protein. My sister noticed that I have lost some weight and commented on it. That made me feel good.

No structured or planned exercise but I moved a LOT of boxes and did a lot of lifting today. About four hours worth. My legs feel it stepping up into the trailer and back down. One improvement I noticed today was I did not need to use the two step ladder to get in and out of the trailer. emoticon Getting stronger! emoticon

Calling it a night. Everyone have a healthy Wed. Hugs

    Most excellent about the trailer and dropping some weight. I always say I don't know how you keep any weight on your bones at all the way you go, go, go all the time. Though one of the articles I read said when the exercise we're getting is the same thing we do every day anyway, it doesn't affect your body the same way. Don't know if there's any truth to that. One of these days when I win a lottery somewhere, I'm sending you a few thousand to go have a girly day out with your daughters! Hugs, Calen~

    Sounds like a pretty active day, I think you got your workout in! Sounds a little frustrating with the rummage sale, I hope you get to get your stuff in there! Nice that someone noticed your weight loss, puts a little spring in your step!
