Morning Kathy. Tell your neighbor it is too soon to be putting in an A/C unit. I remember one May 9th we had a blizzard. I have a box of St. Patrick's Day ornaments and forgot to put them put. I better remember Easter. The Bishop told Tom he did a good job. Waiting for the PT to come for Russ. I am doing laundry seems to be a Monday chore. Glad you go to the Y but be careful you do not overdo things. TOPS on Wed I get re-installed as Leader honors and awards given out. I had to pay $500 more in taxes even though I paid estimated taxes. I also sent in my April 17 estimated tax payment. Take good care of yourself. I care. You are in my thoughts. HUGS,Reed
Hi Kathy - Hope you are feeling well. I saw where your BG went really high. We all have that some times. Mine generally goes too low. I can't believe it is so warm in your part of the country. Here it will be in the 70's all week. Our flowers and shrubs are all blooming. I have to remind myself it is just the middle of March. I hope we don't all suffer this summer with the bugs that didn't die over the winter we didn't have. Say "Hi" to Esther and Kona from Maggie and Zorro ( my cats.) Take care. Cat =^..^=
Hi there Kathy! How are you doing today? Is your BG back down to where it should be? I had to work late yesterday, didn't get home until 100am. Missed my shot and pills, this morning 300BG with swollen feet, blah!!! I finished my project though, so I feel quite liberated today, even with only three hours of sleep.
It is really hot here now too. Thursday it was 88, took the dog out this morning and it was beautiful. Sunny, leaves sprouting pale green, and the flowering trees are blooming. It is so pretty!
I am just like you, all my spring and summer clothes are stuck in a plastic bin in the bottom of my closet, buried. I will have to get in there today and get them out. It will be a small ordeal. I live in an apartment and they put in new windows yesterday while I was gone. Things look much brighter in here, clean windows, yes! I can take that off my spring cleaning list.
So what color shirt did you get at Tar Gay? I got a nice pair of those ballet slipper shoes that I really liked but when I wore them for a while I found out that becasue they have this little wooden heel on them that they won't stay on my feet. I spent all night sawing off the heels with a steak knife. Now I have to find some kind of thin piece of leather to super glue to the bottom and they stay on my feet fine. I wonder if they still have shoe repair places or if that is some ancient memory from my past.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, are your going to drink any green beer? I rememeber how big of a deal that was when I was young. I am half Irish on my mother's side, her name was O'Toole. Ugh, I better have at it with that closet pretty soon, I need a pair of shorts to wear around the house. I am so glad that Russ feels good enough to go out to eat. I hope that they have really good time.
Did you get your tropical shower curtain yet? You should take a picture of yourself with it when you get it. I am excited about what one you are going to get. Yesterday we had to take all the curtains down for the window installation. I am thinking about just leaving the blinds for the summer to bring in more light.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY,Kathy. Sorry your number went so high. I sometimes miss the noon shot and wonder if I should take it when I think of it. Russ doing well. Blood pressure back to normal. We are going out to dinner tonight to STONEWOOD in Ormond Beach. A nurse is supposed to come today. I wonder if she remembered it is Saturday. Lights went off duting the night. I had to reset clocks timers and reboot the computer. I hope you are feeling better. Glorious day here. Tom does the READINGS at the Cathedral tomorrow. You waling? Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning,Kathy. Florence Nightingale on duty. Weigh Russ record make sure he takes morning pills check and record blood pressure. It is still low. But he is home. Two more big things. The growth on his adrenal gland and the blocked artery in his leg. Oh the joys of being a senior citizen. I must be stronger than I think as I am taking all this in stride Some of mu bulbs I thought had died are showing signs of life. I guess our Winter is over high 70's every day. How are things with you. I hope well. A PT coming at 10 to work with Russ. Better they are coming here than going to a rehab. I hope you have a wonderful day. HUGS,Reed
Hi Kathy, I'm still just dragging along, I think I too am having a lot more trouble than usual with the time change. that geneology thing sounds like it might spark something - I think boredom is the opposite of curiousity. (sp)I love going to the library, I like to look at the cookbooks especially. the buttonholes sound like a winning idea. do you have the "keyhole" type with the big rounded thing at one end? I'm thinking that might hold up better. are you making the shower curtain from one fabric, or pieced? we're making some simple tops for charity quilts from a pattern called "Chinese coins" that would make a great shower curtain. I guess you probably don't have many scraps though like I do. yesterday I asked the guild members to please share their stash with us making quilts of valor and quilts for Project Linus.
Good Morning,Kathy. To me things are not that much better but they push you out with a BP of 89.36. He looked good in the hospital. Today he has no energy or zip. Waling kills me. His BP was 90/55. His Cumadan way too high so he has to back this morning. I hope the physical therapists who come can help him with his walking. I am exhausted. My BG 104. How are things with you? You been waling? The weather everywhere has been good althugh some states got a blizzard. Take good care of yourself. I care. HUGS,Reed
Hi Kathy, it was 75 here yesterday. They sent an email out at work saying that they encourage using flex time for fitting exercise into our work day, so my work walking friend and I ventured out in the condo village next to the clinic. She had an operation a few months ago and had to lay down for six weeks and developed sciatica from being sedentary for so long. I walked back and forth in front of her and cheered her on and she did pretty good. We are going to try to get out every day now that it is nice. I think that JC Penny has the most beautiful selection of shower curtains if you want to get something very specal, especially because they have so many choices. I am sure that you could find topical there. Look on the website. I know what you mean about just one thing like a shower curtain making a big impact, my place is all white walls and maroon everything else because I can't paint my walls. The bathroom at least you can make your special little paradise just with something as simple as a new curtain. I am still overwhelmed at work, especially this week, catching up and then I am going to take a non-vacation. I am going to take the last week of the month off and do nothing but healthy things like walking and spending time with my silly family and dog. I am so happy that Reed is getting a homemaker and physical therapsist. Russ should not have to run all over the place getting health care when he is in such poor health right now. Medicare should pay for all of that. I am still working on the weight loss, my blood glucose when low, low all night after the walking, so I am going to have to figure out what to do about that. I hope to get some more time to play on Tu this weekend. I am having Tu withdrawls.
This song has some true meaning! I love it! I can play just about the whole thing, all the way up to when he talks about women in the bridge of the song.. Has some barre chords I cant do yet.. But I will figure it out! :o)
Oh great video of Mellisa , Kathy!! Thank you! I have not played a recording of it, I heard it on the radio today and that video you sent was awesome! Greg is just playing those same 3 chords on the accoustic, and Warren is jammin on the electric.. I need to look at that more and try and play both to the video.. It is a nice slow song with a nice groove so should be able to practice along with it.. I know the guitar part to another Warren Haynes song called Soulshine.. and I have practiced alot to that song by the beegees (that dont really sound like the beegees) To Love Somebody.. One of those 3 songs will probably be one of the first songs I can play and sing to.. Maybe my friend thought Mellisa would be easy enough.. I have always loved the Alman Brothers Band.. We brought the New Year in 1980 to a concert with the Alman Brothers in Hartford Civic Center.. Was a 3 1/2 show.. most amazing show I have seen. Chat with you soon!
Hi Kathy, how are you doing today? Did you get a chance to go out for your walk today? I am in terrible shape, worst I have ever been in. I have used my job and the cold weather for an excuse not to get started but today it is very nice outside. I am going to take a walk today for a start. I feel like an old slug.
Are you going to make a new shower curtain? I used to sew and have a sewing machine. I wish I had a hobby, but I don't have much time. Ha, ha, maybe I should make my hobby exercise until I figure out what to do for a hobby!
Hope things get better on Reed's page. Not good news. Poor guys. I would do anything to make this easier for them. Too bad we are not all neighbors.
I found this great shower curtain for cheap at Kohl's and I love sparkly things, especially if they are super obnoxious and I am the only one that gets to see them. Anyway, it was a bunch of squares that look like leather, fake suede, sparkly snakeskin, and some other designs. I got it home and put it up and thought it was the greatest thing ever. My son comes over and went into the bathroom and says, "Hey mom, what's with that hideous grandpa looking thing in the bathroom?" I guess he didn't like the fact that it was brown and completely missed the sparkly part! Hope you get the shower curtain of your dreams, I say forget the kid, I still think mine is great. Ends up nobody that has seen it likes it but me.
Dear Kathy,I would want to share about my NGO. I am currently a chairperson of newly created NGO "Georgian Union of Patients with Diabetes" The Union has been founded in May, 2011 with the initiative of people suffering from diabetes- uniting Georgians (and not only) with diabetes and their family members (since 1988 I have had type 1 diabetes). Union is non-profit organization focusing on diabetes management, protecting the social and health rights access in the society, provides them currently education program known as "Diabetic School" for free. You might know that there are main problems of healthcare and cure of diabetes in Georgia, Since 1996 patients receive insulin for free. For the necessary equipment (syringes, self-control equipment, test-strips etc.) and medications for the treatment and prevention of late complications patients have to pay partly themselves.
Average net salary per month is 300 GEL (120 EUR)
Average pension is 80 GEL (35EUR). of Gorn Union of patienys with Diabetes.
As you see there is difficult situation about healthcare system in Georgia, with my enthusiasm and with the biggest wishes to help them, I wanted to change that hard condition in my country
As newly Organization any type of assistance is very im[portant to us! If you have any kind of idea how to give voice to International and non-goveermental Organizations that exist such type of Union wich would want to help patients with Diabetes in Georgia?!
Georgian Union of Patients with Diabetes (GUPD)
Good Morning,Kathy. Did you get the cold weather? It is 73 here dreary and damp and not good for the old bones. Did you get my card? Tom is on his way to take Russ for the MRI.Russ does not mind the MRI...it is waiting for the results. I hope no operation needed as I would be stuck I do not drive and no bus service on the island. I still keep saying I must get my tax stuff organized and then do not do it. I pay estimated taces but it seems never enough. I go to a CPA. I would not know how to run a party for that many people. You know in the long run a caterer might be cheaper. Friday in Lent must go to the fish market. Hope things are well with you. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
