21 May

I’m sore today. I was over-zealous in my tasks this morning. I went for a 30+ minute walk doing laps around my parking lot. 1 lap is 220 feet, so I figure 20 laps is close to a mile? Now I need to figure out my pace because I keep losing track of how many laps I’ve made.

Then I came in and started a load of laundry. The son needs shirts, socks and underwear. Don’t tell him that I mentioned him and underwear in the same sentence. He’ll have a cow.

I slso swept the carpet on the stairs. And mopped all my hard floors. I have a few feet in the bathroom, fewer feet in the entryway, and more feet in the kitchen/dining room area. The only problem with mopping is I don’t own a mop. So I scooted along on my bottom and my knees. It needs to be done again soon, but it looks better than it did.

  • I’m grateful to finish most of what I started today. I’m grateful for Tylenol and Ibuprofen. I’m grateful my cleaning soap smells like peppermint. Now my whole house is starting to smell minty fresh.

Night all. LOVES



Watching the weather

18 May

I’m watching the weather again today. And playing video games on my phone. They mowed the lawn today, but didn’t pick up stuff so now there’s little pieces everywhere. I refilled my med minder last night after I got home from the doctor so I’m back on ALL my meds. I’ll hopefully be feeling better in a couple of days. This post is scattered today, kind of like my brain and my life. But I’ll continue on. She hasn’t figured out she can probably jump over the baby gate. So we watch the weather together.20190514_133659_HDR

  • I’m grateful the air smells like fresh mowed grass and rain. I’m grateful I’m alive. I’m grateful I can be ok with occasional scatteredness.

I’ve hit a wall…

17 May

I went to the sleep clinic today for my yearly check in. I spent more time in the lobby and on the bus than I did with the actual doctor. He adjusted my machine and suggested I start using a saline rinse for my sinuses every night to combat my allergies. Told me to come back in a year or whenever I hit my goal weight.

There’s the rub. I haven’t lost any weight lately. I’m getting skinnier, but I weight the same as I did at my 6 month surgical check up. I know that its unhealthy to focus on the actual numbers, but sometimes I just do. Especially when the numbers aren’t moving. Something to bring up with my therapist tomorrow.

  • I’m grateful to my sister for the new clothes she sent me for my birthday. Its nice to have something that I’m not swimming in. I’m grateful I had a hospital gift card for lunch. Although I wasn’t too thrilled with their special of the day. My turkey meatloaf is much better. I’m grateful to hear birds outside my window. And they annoy the cat.

Night all. LOVES

16 May

I have a housing inspection coming up the end of the month. And I need to rearrange my room so the portable air conditioner can reach the window. So I decided to work on it this afternoon. I guess I’m not quite ready to be moving furniture yet since surgery. I hurt myself today. And the cat is mad at me because now she has to work at reaching the window ledge. My bed isn’t right next to it. Oh well. Life continues.

  • I’m grateful to get part of my room done. I’m grateful the heavy part is done. I’m grateful it looks better upstairs.

Night all. LOVES

15 May

I spent most of today watching the rain out the window while I did my dishes and my other chores. I also had the door open so I could hear and smell it. Rain is so invigorating to me.

  • I’m grateful my house smells like new rain. I’m grateful my sink is empty. I’m grateful to feel peaceful this evening.

Night all. LOVES

13 May

It’s Monday the 13th. That’s like the total opposite of Friday the 13th. I think Friday the 13th is awesome and a reason to celebrate. Monday the 13th? It’s Monday! Not saved by it being the 13th. And as I sit here writing, my cat has decided that she needs to taste the water my roses are in. Definitely not a good day over here. I’ll try again tomorrow.

  • I’m grateful I woke up today. I’m grateful I have a roof, 4 walls and a door that I can close on the world. I’m grateful for Tylenol. It’s one of THOSE days.

Night all. LOVES


11 May

My church had a women’s retreat this weekend in Silver Falls State Park. Lots of fellowship, food, and a great time had by all. Next time I’m getting an air mattress though. My hips are killing me after sleeping on the hard wooden bunk. I missed yesterday’s post because we were without WiFi.

  • I’m grateful to be home and in my own bed. Plan on staying there until morning. I’m grateful to have a wonderful time. I’m grateful for all the women of my ward.

Night all. LOVES
