What is Going - Thursday

Thursday, November 20, 2014      2 comments

1. I slept fairly well despite getting dh to give me my allergy shots right before bed. I woke up around 3 am to go to the bathroom and had a bit of a hard time getting back to sleep because my arm hurt and was itchy but I did get to sleep and... Read more

The Gift of Zumba

Thursday, November 20, 2014      2 comments

I gave myself the birthday gift of going to Zumba tonight. It was the first time I've gone in a year. Bad pain, my dad's death, car accident and botched treatment that led to even worse pain, the whole IL elder care thing. . . all of those con... Read more

1. This morning I had fasting lab work done - I got a very good phlebotomist this time! I didn't have to walk her through the process of getting blood out of a turnip. 2. I came home to find dd Skyping friends in Kuwait. They met at su... Read more

What is Going - Monday

1. I am achy, achy, achy today. I'm fairly sure I got into some gluten yesterday. The sweet potato fries were obviously coated in something and while the manager assured me that it wasn't wheat, some people think that "wheat" only means whole... Read more

1. Church was good. The teens and I are discussing what they want to do for a Christmas program. 2. We ate out at Kidd Valley. I had a burger with no bun. 3. We went to see Big Hero 6. It was great! It was also great to hear m... Read more

1. Another night of good sleep. Yes! 2. Today was the second day in a row that I have felt good. (Since my normal good streaks are often only two days I'm not necessarily expecting this to continue but I'm very happy with it and will be... Read more

1. I slept much better last night. Yay! 2. My back and legs have been in so much less pain and have not been cramping since doing The Core Program. 3. Blood sugars are still high and I'm not sure why. I have a doctor's appt. com... Read more

1. I've been having insomnia during the night - probably because of all the drama with the ILs - at least that is what I end up thinking about. 2. Friday is their doctor's appointment. My hope is that the doctor will back up dh and his s... Read more

What is Going - Wednesday

1. Yesterday's drama started just after 9 am when FIL called to tell me that "we don't want to live here anymore. Please take us back to our house." I'm going to cut the story short to say that they've been convinced to stay until Friday when... Read more

Blood sugar day

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      3 comments

I've been so busy with the ILs that I haven't been checking my own blood sugar levels (though ironically I was checking MIL's) and have been eating out a lot. This morning's fasting level was higher than it has ever been. So time to check reli... Read more

Got to the ILs. MIL was dressed - in the clothes that she's worn for five days straight. FIL was in his jammies. We loaded the car with "a few things" - aka enough to totally fill the back of my Rav 4 plus the trunk of dh's Corolla. SIL call... Read more

God is gracious. I have not gotten sick despite feeling on my very last leg. Yesterday my lymph nodes were all swollen too. But I was able to go to church and to function today. I was able to do my IL duty by phone today. I was coordina... Read more

What Will Go - Saturday

Saturday, November 08, 2014      3 comments

I'm on the cusp of getting very very sick. I know this feeling. I've been here before. It is due to sheer exhaustion. I have to get through today - at least through to about 2 pm. I have to drop the kids off at two activities, drive u... Read more

Friday, November 07, 2014      2 comments

Three more days. I am sooooo tired. And achy. But that's because I'm tired. I went to the ILs again - my daily job lately. I was pretty stressed at first, because I hadn't pinned down a time for the moving company to come. I was ... Read more

Dh had the day off of work today. That meant that he could work all day on IL stuff but he was home for breakfast! Dd and I went over to the ILs and I "cooked" them lunch using the microwave. She complained a bit, but I coaxed MIL to th... Read more
