Good morning. It is Saturday again and I am in the mood to relax and play a little. Yesterday was a bust for me. I really didnít feel bad but just didnít have any energy. I was quite short of breath so only got in 30 minutes of walking and had a total of 5,462 steps. I fell asleep about 8 last night in my chair and slept till 2 at which time I put Hailley out and then went back to sleep. I do a lot of my walking at night so didnít get my steps in. Today I better get some things done and I sure will try. I can play during rest periods. I have the whole weekend so donít need to do everything all at once. Hope you all have a great day today.

Not much new here, we have 70 degree weather coming back but so is a major thunderstorm. I'm surprised everyone doesn't have pneumonia here with 27 one day and 70 the next!

Good morning. It Is Friday and another weekend is upon us. It is 32 degrees this morning and it will be cloudy and only gain a few degrees during the day. Yesterday was a fairly good day. I didnít really do much but little things and did get my 60 minutes of walking in. I had a total of 10,025 steps for the day. Breathing was not too bad and had a little more energy. I did give Hailley her bath and she is good now until Sunday. I will need to get more of her medicated shampoo next week so better send off an email to the vet clinic and the Barb can pick it up. It was a pretty good breathing day for me and I always love that.

Jane, things like that really irritate me. I am so impatient with the doctors when it comes to getting my meds refilled. If they don't get back to me or the pharmacy I end up going without my meds and that is not good. I always try to give them at least 3 days to get back to one of us.

I had planned to do some things today but hung around the house waiting for call backs from doctors offices and the insurance company. I have an appointment on Monday with a new doctor but the referring doctor has not sent the papers down. I need a refill on the Synthroid but it needs to be cleared with the insurance via my doctor.

No, I am not a happy camper right now.

Here it is Thursday already. It has warmed into the upper 20ís and is still going to be cloudy but the temperatures are pleasant. Yesterday was a fair day and I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 8,904 steps for the day. I finished getting the Christmas decorations up and did some other small projects around the house. It feels good to see the Christmas tree lit and the other things out again. I love the decorations. Hailley like to check them out also. I was so bummed because I had a feeling that I had missed a appointment so got to checking and found I had a dexa scan on the 27th that I had forgotten. I never miss appointment and even Rick missed it. I will have to reschedule it but wonít get I too big a hurry. It is just routine so not critical. I have lots of things planned for today so hope to be able to get some of it done.

Looks like the storm is going north of us and dissipating. Sure hope so as the Marianas have been hit hard this year.

I think I am finally getting over whatever I have had since mid October. I have not coughed much today.

Good morning. It is starting to warm a little and we will get some snow today. Not sure how much but not a whole lot. Another cloudy day. I do need to get out and feed those birds and clean up after Hailley so glad it will be a little warmer. Yesterday was not a bad day. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 8,340 steps for the day. I got my tree decorated, and a lot of the decorations around the house done. I still have a few left to put up but will try to get it done today. I polished the rest of the furniture and also made a nice turkey dinner. It was so good and now I have some great leftovers. I love those turkey sandwiches.

Krys, hope the car problems are fixed soon and at a reasonable cost.

There may be another storm coming our way. I will know more in a couple of days. It is over by Pohpei at this time and I hope it just dissipates.

I enjoyed the lesson about prayer that we had at church this evening.

Hope you all have a good day.

Have a recall on my car I need to get fixed early tomorrow morning, which will be the coldest morning this month. UGH!

It is 3 degrees as I wake this morning and a light breeze. It is supposed to be the last of this cold snap and then will be warming into the low 30ís for a few days. Yesterday was a little better day.. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 8,220 steps for the day. I did 3 loads of laundry and got some furniture moved out and vacuumed behind it and then got it mopped. I also got some more of the furniture dusted and polished. It is slow going but I am getting there. Last night was Barb and my night out but I decided not to go out but stay in and have her bring food here. We did chicken dinners and then she got my tree out and put it up for me. She also carried in the totes with the ornaments in and so I donít have that to do. I hope to finish cleaning my living room today and get some more of the decorating done.

I did have a nice lunch yesterday and another one today.

I am having trouble with my hair falling out again. Having hypothyroidism is a pain in the neck. I think something got triggered because I have been sick for several weeks. I keep getting hair in my mouth and all over my black sweater. grrrrrrrr My hair is so fine that it drives me crazy when this happens.

It is the start of another week and hoping to have a much better one. I think that I will have to make it a better one. If things donít improve it will be time to check out the blood work to make sure sodium levels are stable. They can drop so fast. Today is starting out at 6 degrees and will only be about 12 for a high. Yesterday was not a good day. I didnít even get dressed and slept a lot. I only had 30 minutes of walking with a total of 4.965 steps for the day. I did do just a little vacuuming but that was it. I even had a hard time eating. The one good thing about the day was that I got to sit and love up my little Hailley and she eats that up. LOL.

Krys, I don't have a big tree. It is about 5 feet and it is easy for me to decorate. I am only 5 feet tall and don't like to have to stand on a stool to decorate so it is just perfect for me.

Just had Christmas Carolers come to the door. They wanted a donation for their church which I declined to give but they did sing a song to me. I had not heard it before.

I had lunch today with my retired teachers group. We had to switch restaurants because the one we planned to go to was closed. We lost two of the group because they came so late and did not have cell phone contact. Not sure what we should do about that.

Jane - sound like a great way to transition with those lessons.

SHARON - you accomplished quite a bit in my opinion! Do you have a big tree?

Roz - you have quite warm weather compared to mine. How big is your tree?

Good afternoon Friends,
Today is quite sunny at 80 degrees although there are slight showers expected.

Church service this morning was very uplifting indeed.

I'm hoping to do some cleaning and putting up of the Christmas tree by the end of this week, seeing that I'll be away from home for the next two days, as I must go watch my special needs granddaughter, we have such a bond because of this.

We have a gettogether coming up at our church next Saturday as one of our members is moving to another island. He grew up in the church went into ministry as a lay preacher then as a presbyter but due to having had a heart attack he has decided t step down and take things easy, We will miss him and his wife..

Hope everyone has an enjoyable rest of the day and a restful night's sleep.
Much love,
Roz.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart lean not on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct your path.

Good morning today. It is Sunday and going to be 19 for a high today with clouds and wind. Not a real nice day to be outside. Yesterday was a fairly good day. I did my 60 minutes of walking and got a total of 9,971 steps for the day. I made cranberry sauce and bread and a pumpkin mousse for my turkey dinner that I will make today or tomorrow. I also vacuumed two of my window blinds and got some of the living room vacuumed and furniture vacuumed and moved. I am trying to vacuum behind the furniture and get it ready for a new stand to set my record player stereo on so I can bring my records upstairs and play them. I miss listening to them. I also want to get my tree up and like to have a clean room to put it in. I also got part of the floor mopped. I hope to finish moving things today. I did lots of little things like garbage etc. I just plain stayed busy all day. It was good for me.

Sharon, God does protect us. Often we do not realize it until much later.

Krys, I am extending the Joseph lessons and then will start the ones about Jesus' birth. This is what Christmas is all about as far as I am concerned. I have received the best gift ever when I received my salvation.

We had a Thanksgiving fellowship after church today and no evening service. I came home took a nap and woke up too late to make an evening service. I would have set the alarm but there was no need to.

Good morning on this Saturday. It is going to be cloudy with about 30 for the high, Then it will cool down for a few days. We are almost to the end of another month and then we will really be into the winter days. It seems like this year has gone by so fast and I wish things would slow down a little. Yesterday was a fairly good day till evening and then it got bad. I only got about 40 minutes of walking in with a total of 6,862 steps. I did vacuum and mop the bathroom and kitchen and got them put back together and washed a load of rugs. I fell asleep in my chair again about 8 and that was it. I donít seem to be able to get my night walks in so guess I better try to get more time in during the day to get my 60 minutes in. I guess it was a good thing that I didnít feel up to going to Tinaís for dinner on Thanksgiving because she came down with a very sore throat and cold that night and I sure donít want to catch something like that.

I had a quiet day. Trying to figure out the Children Church lessons for the next few weeks. I do want to teach about the birth of Jesus and have the lessons but I also want to finish what I have been teaching about Joseph. Looks like I will have a week between the two to fill in. Oh, well something will come up.

Good morning. It is foggy and cooling down a little. It was a windy and damp feeling day yesterday and I felt it clear through me. I was unable to go out to Tinaís so they sent me a lovely plate full of dinner and I was able to eat it later in the evening. I will cook a turkey breast for myself this weekend so will get the full benefit of the turkey dinner. I walked for 45 minutes and had a total of 7,297 steps for the day. I didnít get much done but slept in my chair a lot during the day and did my walking early evening. Today will be a better day and I will get some things done.

I got a call from one of the people setting up the Christmas party for the hospital volunteers and spent much of the day calling people to see if they plan to go to the luncheon. It is free for the members but we do need a number for the hotel. There are a couple of ladies I call knowing that they will not come but it is a means of touching base with them. They are seriously ill and need to stay away from others who may give them another illness.

I am getting stir crazy but I do not want to pick up something so plan to stay home for a few more days.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Hope your day is full with family, friends and good food. I will go to my oldest daughters for dinner and then have a peaceful rest of the day. It is going to be warmer today with a temperature in the upper 30ís. I like that. Yesterday was a good day breathing wise but not so much for steps. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 7,291 steps for the day. I got my salads made and also vacuumed down the basement stairs. I did a lot of misc. chores around the house and then after dinner I sat down and fell asleep in my chair and it was 2 in the morning when I woke up to take Hailley out. I must need the sleep but I donít get my evening walks in when I fall asleep. It could be worse. I am just happy that I feel good.

Jane, good idea to not risk going out and nice that the DIL and grandkids brought you your dinner. Very thoughtful. I will enjoy my Thanksgiving today.

Sharon, what wonderful news! I am so happy for you.

The typhoon went south of Guam around 9:30 this morning. It was rainy, windy with lightening and thunder. The southern part of the island experienced some power outages and othe damages but I was fine. I did stay home as I did not want to get soaked after spending a month being sick. My DIL and grand girls brought me Thanksfiving dinner from the plenty that they had. The weather had cleared up by noon but I did not want to take a chance.

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving day.

Jane on wet Guam

Good morning. It is a cool 12 degrees this morning and will be windy and cloudy. Not a pleasant day, This has been a cold winter already and it isnít officially winter yet. Hope it isnít an inicator. Yesterday was a good day. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 8,791 steps for the day. It would have been more but I fell asleep in my chair at about 8 and slept till 2. I did make bread yesterday and did a lot of small necessary clean up jobs around the house. I had my eye appointment in the morning and that seemed to take up the most of the morning and by then my energy had dwindled. I got an excellent report on my surgery and will not go back on my glaucoma drops right now so that is good. Hopefully they will be a thing of the past. He will check the pressures again in 4 months and that will be the deciding factor. I did get my new after surgery glasses ordered and canít wait till they get here. I will use my old ones as my extras to keep in my hospital bag.

Good morning. It will warm to the low 30ís today but is starting out at 7 degrees. I think it is supposed to be windy also so it feels colder than it is. Yesterday was a good day and I did my 60 minutes of walking with a total of 10,122 steps for the day. I did 3 loads of laundry and vacuumed the couch. I also did a bunch of little chores like garbage, recycles and other misc. things. Barb and I went for dinner last night so that was a treat. I even felt like eating and did really good. We had a great chat and I sure enjoy my nights with her. Today I hope to get a bunch more done. I do have a eye appointment this morning and that will be the last of the exams after the cataract surgery. I sure hope my pressures are good in the eyes so I donít need to go back on the eye drops. Well, need to get something done so have a great day.

Jane - happy to hear you are feeling better.


SHARON - that French toast sounds amazing.

I'll be traveling tomorrow, so I'll do my best to get here but it all depends.

I am waking up to a very cool morning today. We had about another Ĺ inch of snow last night and it is nice and white out. It will be windy and cold today but sounds like a nice Thanksgiving day. Yesterday I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 9,393 steps for the day. I did a get few more things done around the house but nothing too heavy. Just everyday chores. I made a roasted red pepper dip and also made Banana Cinnamon French Toast for breakfast. It was really quite good. Today I want to make a loaf of bread. I really do need to get out and feed the birds. My feeders are empty.

I got groceries this morning. Still a little under the weather but hoping to be well enough to attend church tomorrow. We will not have an evening service on Wednesday and will have a Thanksgiving potluck on Sunday after the 11:00 a.m.

I am hoping to join my family on Thanksgiving day. I think my son will be working (he is a fireman) but the rest of them should be there. We will be going to a small banquet room at a hotel. The younger generation is not willing to do all the food prep and clean up. Most of the ladies are working outside the home as well as taking care of small children.

Take care all.

Jane

Good morning. It is another cold morning at 9 degrees but will warm a little today and it will be sunny, I hope to get some things done today. Yesterday turned out to be a day of rest. I did get my 60 minutes of walking in and had a total of 8,164 steps for the day. I got groceries in the morning and Tina brought the new power cord for my tablet and it charged and running again, I decided to keep the old one because it is not that old and the new one they sent was most likely a refurbished one anyway. It was nice to have all my gaming progress in tact. I spent way to much time playing games. I did have a good day but I was lazy. LOL. I did do a few little things but nothing to write home about,. Hope everyone has a great Sunday what ever you do.

Wanda, it is good to see that the new medicine is probably helping and that there has been some improvement. I know how it is to feel totally exhausted because I went through a period of low sodium and magnesium where it was in the critical zone and I could hardly move. It is not a good feeling. Hope to see a better year for you in 2019.

Livin, good to have you back. I am sorry to hear you have Myasthenia Gravis. I do hope your health improves.

I did stay home from church today and I am feeling a little better. I think the antibiotic is working. My cupboards are bare again so I must go shopping tomorrow. I am so glad to be able to use the electric cart as I do not have a lot of energy.

Take care everyone.

Sorry, I haven't been here for a good while! The fires in California have been just horrific this year. So many people and so much property lost. I'm so sorry that you family has been involved, Sharon. I can't imagine going through something like that at our age.

Hearing the news every day stuns me! It also reminds me to count my blessings and pray for the victims.

I am looking forward to the end of 2018; it holds good memories and bad...the bad being my diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis and a particularly severe, hard to treat form of it. I've just had my second Retuxan infusion after meds failed to help. I've gone from 12,000 steps a day to 2,000 or 3,000 steps. Since last October I have had constant double vision but it cleared up a couple of weeks ago. I think the Retuxan is working. Still have terrible fatigue and muscle weakness as well as scary shortness of breath at times. I won't mind turning the calendar to 2019 and with these treatments I hope to be myself again next year.

Oh...yes, the good things...we celebrated our 50th anniversary; I have good friends who get me out for short periods of time since I haven't been able to drive until recently; I have a cozy home and wonderful children who care; and I have Sparkfriends and teams too.

This is certainly a time to count blessings.

Wanda

Believe in Miracles.
Forgive Everyone.
Life is not fair, but it is good.

Hope your week has gone well and you are looking forward to the weekend.

Next week is Thanksgiving and I will be in and out due to travel and internet restrictions.

I had not realized that the people had to run to get away from the fire. Thankfully most people made it out. I am so sorry that your family lost someone.

I did make it to the doctor today and my nose has dried up some. I am taking two things that can cause drowsiness so I do not plan to go anywhere for awhile. One has codeine in it so that should help with the aches. Not sure what I will do about church on Sunday.

Take care and be safe everyone.

Jane - with no electricity, I can see where cash would be preferred. Feel better!

SHARON - glad to hear you are getting your tablet up and running soon. It amazes me how much I rely on technology that didn't exist just a couple of decades ago.

Good morning. It is a nice 30 degrees here and will be about 40 again today. We had a lot of snow melt yesterday and it just felt like a nice day. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 9,136 steps for the day. I did get a few small chores done in the house and that was good. My breathing was good yesterday. I felt good. Tina got the new power cord ordered for my tablet so I should have that on Saturday and then will see what happens. I would sure like to get things up and running again. It has been a long time without my tablet now and I miss it. I really like to use it when I have a bad night with breathing. It keeps my mind off of things. I did hear from my SIL and T. K. did not make it. It is official now that he is one of the casualties of the fire. I am feeling very sad for them. Doris said that 9 of her family members lost everything in the fire. Her house is completely gone and they are anxious to get onto the property to see if there is anything they can salvage. I think it will help them to finally accept and get closure on things. They did have one good piece of news from someone that is up on the hill where Dorisí daughter lives. They said that Kimís is not damaged and so Doris will have someplace to go when they are able to get into the area again. I just thank God that they are all safe.

Jane, I know that Doris would not have had enough time to get any cash out of her safe as her brother lost 2000 dollars cash to the fire because of no time. They have still not been able to get onto their property to see if anything is there so they really need to rely on whatever they might have with them which would be the plastic.

Krys, I have a Amazon Fire 10 and will get a free replacement on Saturday so not a big deal.

Krys, I think if you checked with people who lived through Katrina or some of the really bad hurricanes you will find they did not have access to credit cards, debit cards or banks for a day or two after that type of disaster. The people in Paradise, CA and the areas around were that way also. That is why I brought up the idea of having cash in a fire safe or something similar that would tide you over for a few days.

Runny nose, cough, sore throat are driving me crazy. At least my back is not hurting like it was.

Jane - I think stores here would have a riot on their hands if someone didn't take plastic. Even the fast food places take them and the cashiers have no clue how to give change LOL

SHARON - glad you and Barb had a pleasant meal together. I was afraid it might be the cable. What kind of tablet do you have? If there is a Walmart near by, you can pick it up quickly.

This week is going so fast. Here it is already Wednesday, the middle of the week. It is going to be a really nice 41 degrees here with lots of sunshine. I will enjoy it. I will try to get out and feed the birds today and enjoy some of the sun. Yesterday was a quiet day, I felt good but had my breathing was not good. I decided it was a quiet day. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 7,965 steps for the day. I rested most of the day doing only a few little things around the house. Barb brought dinner to me instead of us going out so that was nice too. We enjoyed some good conversation and a pleasant meal and then she had to go. I fell asleep early in my chair and had a good nights sleep. I will work on some cleaning today if I feel like it. Hope itís a good day for all.

Krys, my tablet did arrive and it won't charge either so it has to be the power cord. They didn't send a new one of those so will have to wait till I get a new one of those. Hopefully by the weekend.

Jane, hope the cold lets up and that you can get the back pain under control. It is not nice to feel bad but to be sick and in pain is terrible.

The Kmart here often does not accept credit cards because the machines are not working correctly. You need cash to buy what you want at those times. Also, mom & pop stores will take cash only when there is a problem.

My cold has flared up again and my back is really hurting. I may go to the chiropractor tomorrow.

Good morning, It is a cold 8 degrees out this morning but we are in for a warming trend starting today, I am looking forward to the lovely sunshine. Yesterday was a good day for me. I did my 60 minutes of walking with a total of 9,876 steps for the day. I did three loads of laundry and some other small projects around the house. The sun was out and it seemed so nice to see it. My Son-in-law was over and shoveled for me so the sidewalks are clean again. It is supposed to melt all the snow so that will be nice. We are almost half way through the month of November again so that is a good deal. I am supposed to get my new tablet today so pretty excited about that.

Krys, people around Paradise could not use the ATM's, go to a bank and may not have been able to use a credit card for a few days. People in Tinian and Saipan were also. With the national infrastructure so old when there is a bad fire, hurricane or even a tornado things may be closed down for several days.

I had planned to go to a meeting today but woke up about three in the morning and could not go back to sleep. I stayed home.

SHARON - it was nice of your son to take care of that for you.

Good morning on this Monday. Another week and it is going to be a warmer one. Thank goodness. It is cold with 12 degree temperatures and not going to warm much at all today. Yesterday we did get a little sunshine and then snow showers. I did get 60 minutes of walking with a total of 10,418 steps for the day. I got the cushions for my deck chairs vacuumed and downstairs for winter storage and that is about all. I did a few little things but a transformer blew and so I was without electricity for a while. It blew my TV and so that was toast. Thank goodness for my son as he had a 30Ē flat screen that he doesnít use anymore and he brought that over and hooked it up so now I donít need to buy a new one. I couldnít really afford that right now. Arenít kids great. I did feel pretty good yesterday just very short of breath and having a hard time keeping my oxygen levels up for some reason. Hope it is just weather related.

Oh, Sharon, I am so sorry to hear about your family. I pray that all are safe even if they have lost all their possessions. A blessing they have somewhere to stay that is not a hotel as that can get very expensive.

Krys, the management were trying to locate the one I reported. Apparently there was another one whom they had asked to leave.

There is at least one other lady who is willing to help with my class.

On one the other teams there was talk about keeping some cash at home incase of an emergency like the fires in CA. The banks are closed and the ATMís are not working nor access to credit cards. I have a fire safe with important documents in it. I think I will add about $200. in cash.

Stay well

Jane

Jane - what did management do about that lady panhandling? You'll have to find a new "sub" for that class.

SHARON - it is terribly sad that the whole town is basically gone. Hope the BIL is okay, I heard that cell phone coverage is about gone, so maybe he just can't get in touch.


am at my daughter's this weekend, dog-sitting and driving back tomorrow. It will be pouring down rain and cold. I'll be happy to get home.

Good morning this cool 19 degree morning. It is supposed to stay cool all day and not be too nice a day. Blustery with winds and a little blowing snow. Yesterday was a pretty good day for me. I did my 60 minutes of walking and a little more with a total of 10,650 steps for the day. I fell asleep in my chair last night so didnít get many night steps in. I did get the bathroom cleaned so that was good. I also did some little chores like getting recycles out and getting waste paper baskets emptied and garbage out. My SIL called and the officials believe that T,K. didnít make it but they have not found his body yet and have not notified the family so Doris and all are taking a positive attitude and praying he is alive. It is very sad. She has 8 family members, brothers, sisters, daughter and niece that lost their homes and they are all staying with her one brother that lives about 150 miles away. Hereís to a good Sunday with better news for all. Have a good one.

I enjoyed teaching the Children's Church Class again. The young lady who has been taking the class when I cannot is leaving to join her husband at his new duty station. He finished basic training and then did a one for a special field and now has been assisgned a base in Tennessee. I am going to miss her and her children but delighted that the family will be together again.

We had a class about baptism for new believers today and should see several baptised next Sunday. We do it in the Pastor's swimming pool which is nearby. Probably will go back to the ocean when he and his wife leave.

Have a great day everyone and anyone who is a vet, THANK YOU!

Hey everybody, it is Saturday again and 6 degrees here this morning. I am sure it will drop a few more before it starts to warm up. We are supposed to snow with wind and so a blustery day in store. It sure feels good to have the heat on and be able to curl up in my chair and watch some TV. Yesterday I did my 60 minutes of walking and some extra for a total of 11, 295 steps. I really didnít get a lot done around the house but stayed busy. I did a bunch more busy work at the computer and on my desk and that was about it. I did go get groceries so that is done for another week. Tina called Amazon so a new tablet is on its way and should be here tomorrow or Monday. How nice that is. I am so happy because I sure miss it. Today I would like to get my bathroom cleaned and vacuum furniture. I just heard yesterday that my SIL lost everything in the fire in Paradise, California and so did my niece. Doris said she was only able to get the dog and get out. They almost didn't make it. He one BIL is missing and I am waiting to hear that he is safe. It sounds like the whole town of Paraidse is gone. My prayers go out to them all and to all the other victims of the fires.

Krys, I really do not know why most of Guam uses weedeaters unless they have a sitting mower. My yard is too small for a sitting mowere.

One of the advatages of teaching was I coud go into my classroom, teach my students and not be hassled by management, at least most of the time.

I had a young woman approach me while grocery shopping this after noon asking for money. I reported her to management. She was actually in the store and went to someone else after me.

Stay well everyone.

Jane

Jane - I think most of us would agree with that quote. LOL Why do they use a weed eater instead of a mower?

SHARON - glad you had a good day. Sadly, I've worked with people like your daughter's new boss. They are so intimidated by smart people they have to put them down to make themselves feel better. Not easy to 'live' with!

It is a chilly morning here at 11 degrees and will not warm up much. We had another light dusting of snow so everything looks white and clean. Yesterday turned out to be a little tough but was able to clear things out last night. Hoping for a much better day today. I did my 60 minutes of walking and had 7,695 steps for the day. I did get some more desk work done. I typed a few more recipes I have tried and liked into my cookbook program and things like that. Last night I fell asleep early in my chair and woke at 2:00 to put Hailley out. I didnít get my evening walking in but I needed the sleep, Today I am going to enjoy the day and I will get done what I get done. It will be a good day. Hope you all have a good one too.

Jane, thank you. Barb has been a manager of something for over 25 years and she is currently a manager of her department in HR and now her manager is telling her she is not manager material and that she is all about herself and no one else. It is so hurtful and seems to me the new manager has self esteem issues and is a little jealous of Barb. It just hurts to see my daughter in pain. She has given her all by going in to work a couple hours early and staying a good hour late every day for years. Seems she should be getting a little praise for being so faithful.

Sharon, I am sorry to hear your daughter is having a problem with a new manager.

I have had a quiet day and really need to get up and get going. It rained this morning so the man who cuts my grass did not come. He and his crew do a really nice job using a weed eater although I prefer a lawn mower. Most people here use a weed eater instead of a mower. Oh, well.

I have done calling for the hospital volunteers yesterday and today. There are a few who never return calls even when repeatedly asked to.

Hope all is well.

Jane

Good morning on this 15 degree day. It is cold here and a good day to do some indoor housework. I am ready to get some good cleaning done. I had a good day yesterday. I fell asleep in my chair after eating breakfast and thought I was going to mess up the day but I decided it was a good day to get going. I got up and dusted the furniture and got a lot of just plain old busy work done. Things like check book, Medicare survey, ordering things that were needed from Amazon and desk cleaning. I stayed busy most of the day and felt really good. I did my 60 minutes of walking and probably another 60 minutes just because I wanted to for a total of 13,211 steps for the day. Barb and I went to Walmart and then to dinner and had such a nice chat. I enjoyed the evening. I am feeling quite bad for her because she is having a problem with her new manager at work. She has been at her job at her company for about 10 years and has been in a manageria position in the HR department and her new boss has taken a dislike to Barb for some reason. I have never known my daughter to be anything but kind and considerate and works well with others. This woman canít seem to go a day with out some kind of put down to my daughters self esteem and I have never seen her feel down about herself and she is. I sure hope things will straighten out for her.

Sharon, good to hear you had a good nights sleep.

Krys, yes, we need to seek God as an individual and as a nation. I fear the nation is doing it less and less.

My back is doing fine right now. I could have skipped going to the chiropractor today but I think it is best if I go at least a couple of times a month. I do need to start walking more again now that the cold I came down with the day after Yutu, which was October 24th is just about gone. I am also sleeping better than I have for a very long time. I go to bed before midnight and do not get up until after six in the morning. I may wake up for a short time but I do not need to get out of bed and run to the bathroom. I have some friends who say, "Getting old ain't for sissies." I seldom use slang but since it is in the quote...

Jane

Jane - Glad to be of help. 2 Chronicles 7:14 New International Version (NIV)
"14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land."

SHARON - hooray for small victories. Hope you get that tablet fixed no matter the problem.

Good morning. It is a cold blustery 22 degrees here this this morning with about an inch of snow on the ground with wind. Not a pleasant day. The high today will be 26 degrees. Winter is here. Yesterday was a strange day. I had lots of breathing problems but I walked though it. I didnít do much but walk around. Walking seems to help some. I did 60 n a lot more than 69 minutes of walking with a total of 12.234 steps. I didnít do much else. I did a few chores but slept some in my chair because I was really tired. I also read a little and watched some of my shows. I was finally able to get some gunk up last night and am breathing a little better today. Had a good sleep for the first time in about a week so that felt good too. Hoping for a good day today and will work at making it that way. Hope you all have a good one too.

Krys, it isn't the charging cord that I think is bad, it is the port on the tablet that you plug it into. They say they can go bad.

Thank you Krys! I got rid of 1,330 posts in the trash in a second!

As the elections go I think of II Chronicles 7:14 and realize we really need to go back to there again.

Good morning to you all. I hope your week is starting out with a good bang. It is going to be a nasty day here with rain and maybe some blowing snow later in the evening. It doesnít look like a lot of snow but it will be snow. We had a little rain shower last night but not much fell. Yesterday was quite a good day for me. I had a tough start but it got better from there and I finally got some things done. I did my 60 minutes also potted my chives and parsley and brought them in. I got lots of small things done inside and also had my wellness check so that is done for another year. I got my blood work back and everything was great. Sodium and magnesium were right up where they belonged. I was worried because they can crash when I am sick. Today I would like to get some things done inside. It is time to start a good cleaning. I guess I best start by just getting the dusting done and vacuuming and a general weekly cleaning first but then would like to start on closets and things like that. It will be a day to day thing for me because everything is slow motion for me with my COPD. The key is to just keep doing as much as I can and it will get done. Hope you all have a great day and prayers for all of you that need them.

Roz, I know exactly what you mean. If I don't get up and get the first thing on my agenda done right away, I just don't get anything done. It seems if I get it done I want to keep going.

Krys, I have tried several outlets and tried over and over to get it to connect. I looked online and sometimes the port on where you plug the charger into the tablet goes bad and it doesn't get a tight connection and won't charge. I will have Tina call them and since it is still under warranty I will probably have to send it in.

Jane, I am glad the election is over and now maybe the ads will all quit. I was so sick of seeing all of them.

Krys, my iMac will not let me bunch them and delete.

I voted this evening. There have been some changes like curb side voting was more prominent. Getting into the actual voting room was a challenge because of stairs. At least there was a railing which I did use.

I am feeling better. I paid my power and water bills today and then went to lunch with my Tuesday friends, came home, took a nap and then went to vote.

The poles are now closed here on Guam as it is after 8:00 p.m.

VOTE PEOPLE!

Jane - the ones in the trash can be deleted all at once. Click on one, then press the CTRL and the A keys together on the keyboard andall should be highlighted and just click Delete and they should all be gone.Hope this helps.

SHARON - so glad you are doing better. Try a different outlet to charge your tablet and make sure the cable is all the way in.

Roz. - did you make it to the library and supermarket?

Another week today and hope to have an improved one. Hope you all had a great weekend. Yesterday was a better day, I did my 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 9,474 steps for the day. It was an improvement over Saturday. I also did quite a few little chores around the house that needed doing and was on my feet a lot more. I started to have problems with my new tablet yesterday and it wouldnít take a charge. It shows it is charging and all indications showed that it should be but it wouldnít take the charge. I will have Tina come and call for me so that I can see what to do. It is hard for me to talk on the phone so she does my calling for me and she was the one who gave me the tablet. It isnít even a year old so still under warranty so probably will get a new one. Gave Hailley her bath and her skin is looking good but lots of gunk coming out of the ear. Hope it is a good sign. I have my wellness check up today with my PCP so will have a busy day. Have a good.

Still working on the e-mails as my fingers get tired pushing delete a thousand times. That puts the ones I delete into the trash and then I have to delete them again... I am down to 15,000...

I saw one of my GD's at the grocery store today. I was wanting for the electric cart to be free. She offered to do my shopping but I declined. I may have to rethink that eventually but if I do I think I will have the girls go with me a few times so they get an idea of what I look for.

Nancy, it sound fun to be able to spend time with the little grands.

Jane - glad to hear from you and that you are feeling better. Hope you have those emails under control by now.

SHARON - hope you are feeling better, it may take the meds a couple of days but I'm hoping they do the trick!

NANCY - nice to hear from you! When those toddlers get moving it is amazing how much energy and distance they can cross. Sorry to hear about your Curves, do you have a Planet Fitness gym near by by chance?

I'm so happy my son brought my grand-daughter with him yesterday and installed a gate at the top of our stairs for her safety. She is an active 17 months old. This way he and my daughter-in-law will be able to bring her to us to baby-sit. Mila gives me a lot of exercise when I baby-sit with her. I'm sad because our Curves finally closed last week, but I'm going to find a new place to do more exercise.

Hi all. It is Sunday and hoping for a good day. It will be cloudy and cool with some rain and maybe a snowflake here and there. After taking Hailley out I see it is already raining very lightly. Yesterday was not a good day as you can see by my step count. I was able to do just the 60 minutes of walking and had a total of 6,971 steps for the day. I only did a few little thing around the house in the afternoon. I am hoping that the antibiotics and prednisone will start to work soon. I do think I feel a little loosening in the chest and hope it breaks up soon. On a better note, Haileyís skin seems to be clearing up nicely and here ears are better so she is on the mend. I have been able to catch up on some of my TV shows and done some reading so all is not lost. I will have a better day today even if it is only the afternoon that is good. Hope you are all well and have a great Sunday.

Jane, glad you are feeling better. It seems we need those groceries and my daughter went and got mine yesterday since I was not doing too well with the breathing. She is good that way.

Krys, I am hoping that the prednisone has started working a little better today. I am hoping that the mucus build up is starting to break and I won't have as hard a time getting it up. I know TMI.

I have not been getting posts from SP. Not sure why.

I am feeling better and made it to church today. Tomorrow I need to get groceries as the cupboards are bare again.

I need to get rid of some more e-mails that my server dumped on my account. They are duplicates of which most of them I had deleted but must go back and delete again, individually! What a waste of time. If I could change servers I would but of the two available here this is supposed to be the better. uggggghhh

Hope everyone here is doing well and enjoys there longer sleep in the morning.

Good morning to all. It is the weekend and hoping to see a good one. Yesterday was another really bad day until about 1:00 PM and then I started to feel better. I am going to make today a better day all around if at all possible. I am tired of feeling this way. I did reach out to the doctor and he wants me to start the antibiotics and a 5 day prednisone burst so that is what I am doing. I hope it does some good. I did get in 60 minutes of walking and a little more for a total of 8,426 steps for the day. I did a few little things and will do more today. I have about 30 minutes I would like to do outside and then I am done for this year. Hope you all have a great weekend.

It is a damp Friday morning here in MN. It is cold, a light drizzle and possible snow later. It is a good day to settle in the warm house and cuddle up with a good book or a nice TV show. I might just do both. Yesterday was not to bad a day. I did get my 60 minutes of walking in and some extra for a total of 9,961 steps for the day. I did some little chores around the house and felt pretty good in the afternoon. I made a nice dinner and enjoyed it a lot. All in all it was a pretty good day. Hope today is the same.

It has been an eventful Thursday because I was able to clean the whole house and mop as well. I used to be able to do so in a couple of hours but it seems to take me longer as I do have to rest in between.

We.ve had another forecast for thundery showers again, yesterday was a typical rainy day. and today the sun peeped out intermittently.

I'm anticipating doing better with my exercise programme this month.


My oldest brother turned 69 today.

Have a blessed time of day everyone!


Much Love,
Roz.

SHARON - those little ones always look so cute dressed up. No, because of our rescue dog's reaction to strangers, we chose not to give out candy. She gets so upset and stressed, she actually makes herself sick from fear. We learned the first year we had her and haven't done it since.

Krys, beautiful picture.

Hello on this cool Thursday morning. Did everyone survive Halloween and did you have any kids? I had about 20 and when it got to be the older rowdy kids I shut off the light and stopped giving out candy. Yesterday was a quiet day and I didnít get out and finish up due to breathing issues. I am hoping they are better today and I can get things cleared out of the airways so I can breathe. I did walk my 60 minutes and had a total of 7,916 steps for the day. I fell asleep in my chair last night so didnít get the evening walking in and that makes for lower step count. Hope everyoneís Thursday is a good one.
