- HEALTH TRACKER
Good afternoon Crystal and the rest of Illinois!
I am working and then heading to Rockton to dinner with a friend. I am looking forward to it.
Tomorrow will be my Friday at work. I will attend my appointments on Friday morning and then pick Riley up from her last day of school. After that, I am not sure what we will do. I am sure we will find some sort of mischief to get up to.
Gotta get back.
Have a lovely day!
I get to go to see Dr. Guske today. If not him, his NP.
No rain at this moment.
Crystal, your "problem" with opposite schedules brings back memories of ours. When Hubert and I were going together, He worked 4 to 12, and I worked 8 to 4. Then he moved back to Streator, for a new job, and I was in St. Louis. We did work it out, as you know, and 47 years later we are still together.
Nancy, good for you. I totally agree with your stance at ATT. I would of done the same thing. We got medicom for everything now. No problems.
I am suppose to have my best friend up for the weekend. Now , I don't think she is coming. :( She cannot tell me for sure until Thursday. But that is ok. If not, I will still do what was planned.
Have a great day,
Good Morning Everyone!
I cannot believe we are back to cooler weather but I will take it over snow any day. I am getting tired of rain though.
Today, Gage comes for a few days. IT will be really good to see him. I have not seen him for several months. He just had his prom over the weekend so I cant wait to hear about that. If will be fun to hear about a guys point of view.
Last night AT&T did not show up for their appointment. I spent another hour on the phone with them. I have left them with the ultimatum of they fix my system by Friday at 5 pm or I go elsewhere. I refuse to pay for anything because the system does not work. They fix it or come remove it at their loss. I am fed up with them. I have been more than patient and when they do not show up for their scheduled appointments then that is the last straw!
No other news today. Everything else is going ok for which I am thankful.
Everyone have a great day!
I am not happy about the cool down but hey we have had some fabulous weather, so I shouldn't complain about a couple cool days.
Chris and I have been talking every day but we really can't see each other during the week because we have completely opposite schedules. He works 2-9pm. Oh well life can't be perfect...although I really wi**** was.
I have been working out but I have mixing up a lot lately. I don't plan on what I' going to do I just decide on the spot...ellipticall or exercise dvd. And I have quite a few dvd's and I have been mixing those up too. I want to confuse my muscles.
Today I am working, then doing groceries, then working out. That is my day in a nutshell. What are you doing today???
Well I have to finish getting ready...see ya later...bye
Good afternoon Crystal and the rest of Illinois!
I am getting ready to leave work soon. I have to drop a few things off with David then home to see how the porch looks. My FIL has lent me a power washer so the siding can be cleaned up a bit. I still have the porch furniture to work on and Olivia has to work at the graduation tonight so no help there.
Riley LOVES camping. She is already asking to go again this year. I agree with Lisa.....it seems that I do most of the work when camping so a hotel is my idea of fun. I suggested that Todd and the kids take Riley while Amber and I do something else, but that did not go over too well. Things we do for our kids and grandkids....
Not much else happening here.
Everyone have a good evening.
I am also sad about the tornado that hit Moore, OK. yesterday. It makes our problems seem little in comparison.
I had a good time last night in Bloomington. Then, I drove home. UGH!!! I got about 10 miles on the interstate, and the rain started. Then the lightning, then the big trucks going around me. I was not happy!
I did get hold of my heart Dr. yesterday. He did confirm I was reacting to the new med he gave me. He then told me to drop the new med, and double up on another med I take. We will see what happens.
I am calling my eye Dr. this morning. It is time for new glasses.
No plans for today, except a bit of housework. Tomorrow, I have an appointment with Dr. Guske. That is the 30 day visit. I think I have lost about 20 lbs.
Everyone have a good, dry day.
I have Uverse internet but cannot get their tv here. Everyone I know who has gotten the full suite has had months of transition headaches. The healing pain in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen i****ting but only about a two. Pain over all has been close to consistent but keeps changing places. Overall it has been less than expected. Lectures and maybe a quiz today. I canceled my going to a lunch meeting at Groupon today. Do not want to pu**** And I need to pay Uverse.
Good Morning Everyone!
It looks like it may be a nice day. I know it may rain later. I am VERY thankful that we did not get the storms that Oklahoma did. I feel so bad for them. Such devastation is awful. I cant imagine 2 schools being wiped out with the kids in school. So sad.
Today is just the usual, work and home. They are coming to work on my phones again tonight. We thought we might have it figured out to be the fax machine but I dont think that is it. I turned it off yesterday and they still went down again last night. Sigh. Maybe I cant have uverse. They insist that others on my block have it without problems but I am beginning to wonder.
Not much happening.
Gage is coming for a few days tomorrow. It will be good to see him
Everyone have a great day!
I stayed up to late last night...ughhh. I'm a bit tired now. I will be fine once I get moving.
I got my workout in yesterday and I checked the AC is workoing fine at the clubhouse now!!! They fix things fast around here...I like that.
I don't know if I mentioned it before but I always watch WGN news in the morning. I find it to be light and so funny. I don't want serious news so early. But they are always cracking me up. If anyone watches them on a regular basis you know what I mean. They are hilarious. They make the news fun to watch.
More of the same for me today...work and working out. How about you guys???
Well I go to get going guys...have a good day all...see ya later...bye
The one on Market Street is for rent or sale. It may be worth the $ 700.00/month but I haven't seen the inside. The guy just completely fixed it up well over a year ago and it has been sitting empty ever since. The upside is that Rock City is an awesome place to live.
Not sure about the others.....I had noticed that many are for sale.
Good Afternoon Everyone!
I am home today. We are still trying to get my Uverse phone figured out. The life alert system went off at 2:30 this morning and I never got back to sleep. 3 hours of sleep and making nice to customers does not mix. So I called in and went back to bed and finally fell back to sleep. After the umpteenth call to AT & T we may have the problem figured out. I have a fax machine that connects to my phone line and we are thinking that may be the problem. They are sending a tech out to rehook up everything as whoever installed this system did it running through the fax machine,. So much for the "expert installation" Needless to say I want this solved yesterday!
So I am relaxing today and may go for another nap.
Dawn, your porch sounds delightful. You will have to post pictures.
Lisa, I am sorry you are so tired. I was too after surgery. It lasted about 6 weeks. I think I took a nap every day. Hopefully it is just your meds but give yourself a break, it still could be the surgery.
Crystal, I am glad you had fun yesterday. I would be caught short on camping as well. My idea of camping is a bed and a bathtub at the local Holiday Inn. Somehow campgrounds dont provide that service! Our family did not camp growing up. Although I have camped and survived it. I want the bed.
Everyone have a great day!
Good morning Crystal and the rest of Illinois!
I was MIA over the last four days.
Todd decided Wednesday night that we both needed to take Thursday of to paint the pillars on the porch. He wanted me to switch my Thursday for Friday but I had commitments to keep on Friday. I used a vacation day and we had a great time. The weather was perfect for painting and lots of neighbors stopped by to inquire about the project. We then had a late lunch with friends before coming home and I worked on the porch furniture some more. I have two pieces cleaned, repaired and ready to paint. Only three more to go. I think I am going to look into borrowing a sprayer......
Friday, I went to my appointments and the thrift store to see what I could find for the 60's party on Saturday. There is a pic on Facebook of what I came up with. Todd was Andy Griffith........trick was, he shaved his beard and wore a wig so many people did not recognize him. It has been over 20 years since he last shaved his facial hair completely. He looks like David under there!
Yesterday, we just chilled.
I am back to work today feeling refreshed and relaxed with a new attitude. So, Nancy----maybe the long weekend will do the same for you.
I am having Riley the next two Fridays and the little shop across the street from my house has agreed to sell my products. So, all in all feeling more positive.
Someone asked when Liv graduates-----not until next year. She is just a very prepared young lady. We still have to go check out schools in Florida once she is done for this year.
Gotta get back at it. You all heve a spectacular day!
Another way we are alike. I always thought I would start with, "Dust in the Wind", then move to "Another One Bites the Dust". I alos want a party and NO VEIWING. That creeps me out. I want people to remember me how they remember me. Not that lifeless husk. For that is what it will be.......I won't be there anymore.
When our very good friend died a couple of years ago the service was awesome. It began to look very somber, but as his nephew escorted the casket into the church, "Spirit in the Sky" broke out. At the end, they played, "Lean on Me" and everyone in the church held hands or put our arms around each other. All sorts of other non-traditional music was played. It was the most moving funeral I have ever attended.
There are a few in Dakota, a couple in Rock City (although the white one on Market Street is asking way too much) and I noticed quite a few in Durand the other day. All have excellent schools. Pecatonica too.
I live in Rock City (between Rockford and Freeport, but closer to Freeport). I work in Rockford and would also attend the support group if it was on a night that is good.
I had RNY in October of 2006 with Drs. Garren and Gould in Madison, WI.
Nice to "meet" you!
Notify me when someone replies to my post does not work for me any more for months now. Even when I start the days posts.
I like to mozie, dawdle, stroll, linger, swing in a hammock, rock in a huge rocker on a porch, tread water and do a dead man's float. I am hoping the change in my abdomen has gotten rid of what felt like a beach ball when swimming.
I do not know anyone that does security attacks for a living in my current group. I have known some in the past who designed protection systems. The groups I am hanging out with now are into sharing so anyone that steals from them has to be pretty stupid. It does still happen though. My favorite professor recently went on a rampage because some jerk tried to act like his work belonged to them.
I guess I will be playing pong today but it will be less fun than usual as I will be playing my peer's pong games to grade them. I think it will be three weeks from now when I get to make my next attempt at learning OO syntax.
I like to mozie almost as much as I like to stroll. Right in there with those is treading water and doing a dead man's float. I am hoping this summer what is left of my flap will be less of a downer when swimming.
Crystal, it is nice to see you enjoyed yourself yeasterday. We used to camp, until I decided it was more fun at a Holiday Inn. All i have to do is pack clothes and a few snacks instead of cleaning gear, cooking meals and cleaning everything when we got home.
Today I will be going to Bloomington for a Mother/Daughter tea for Rainbow. Morgan invites me every year. I don't know what if anything I will be able to eat, but it will be fun anyway.
I am going to call my heart dr. today. I think i am reacting to the new beta=blocker that they gave me. I seem to be extra tired all the time. At first, I thought ok, I just had surgery, it takes a lot out of you, I will be ok in a week or so. But, I am still that way. I can dust a room or two, and then its sit down and rest. Plant a planter, come in and rest. Go to the store, and need a nap before I put stuff away. Anyway, that is one of the side effects of this med. Another is feeling cold.
It looks like it could get nasty later today. The forcast is showers and thunderstorms after 4. Just about the time I will be leaving.
Have a great day,
I had a nice Sunday. It started early. I went to breakfast at a place in Downers Grove called The Baked Apple Breakfast. It was good. Then while I was out that way I drove over to Whole Foods and bought some fruit. Then I went to Chris's house and spent the afternoon there. We had fun...turns out we like the same music too. So it's a lot of muscle work to tear an engine apart. I told him I might workout but I have no upper body strength...I hate to disappoint. But I enjoyed myself. We did have to cut the afternoon short because he had this concert to go to for his son. But that is fine...I would rather that than if he was a dead beat dad like Amanda's...I couldn't like or respect a guy like that and I would have to dump him. Plus I needed to get home and workout.
When I went to workout I found the clubhouse had no AC!!!! I thought well I will do what I can. I lasted 40 minutes. I usually do 60. I was such a sweaty mess (more than usual). What I have been doing is a double workout on the weekends but after the migraine yesterday and no AC I just decided to play it safe and not do the second half of my workout.
I can't believe that it's Memorial Day weekend next weekend. A big group of my friends are going camping. I decided not to go. I have no camping gear...it would have cost a fortune to by a tent and a bag and a mattress (I'm not sleeping on the ground!!!). They were talking about it at breakfast yesterday and I thought, wow that's this weekend!!! There was a time when I knew exactly when a 3 day weekend was coming up...I was counting down the days and looking forward to them. So I guess you can tell I like my job!!!
Today is like any other Monday...my busy day and going in extra early. Then working out. That's it for me. How about you guys??
Well I got to get ready now...enjoy this nice hot weather!!! See ya later...bye.
