Thanks Sooz. we aren't sure what is causing the pain. It is her groin and leg on her injured side.

They didn't give Mom any pain meds or tests. She is just going to stay in her recliner til Wed. For some reason the bed makes it worse.

Quick check in.. been a long week of Doctors and tests followed by another long week of more Doctors and more tests for me .. exhausted and fed up with always feeling 'broken'.
Diet has slid as I really just dont care right now, need to try to get back on it.

Misty - So very sorry to hear about your pup.. They are so dear to us.
Cheryl - Hope your mom can get some relief and answers soon.

So sorry about your Mom Cheryl. Just sitting in a recliner until Wednesday does not sound like the best solution..... They need to help her!!

Cudabear, doctors visits over and over with no real solution is no fun. Hope they find something to fix. It's hard to worry about your diet when you don't feel well.

Hey Pat! Hope all is well for you. Are you on the mainland yet? The potato hack was good. 1 day of 600 tater calories, then 1,800 tater calories, then 600 tater calories. I lost 1.5 lbs in 3 days. Not bad.

I trust EVERYTHING you say Deb.

Got busy at work but stayed to plan. Off to Mexican cantina tonight for dinner and will stay on plan.

Moms pain has subsided for now.

Sooz are you in the states? Mexican cantina thru me. I thought it was a while before you headed south again.

CBear. It's terrible when the Dr can't help. I hope they figure it out soon.

Karen are you guys done with snow yet?

Pat all warm again in Maui. that's pore envy there.

Deb what's for dinner. We went out. Still waiting on my oven door.

V yeah we are getting a wintry mix tonight. Temps are dropping. But it won't be here long. Hope you feel better

Jo what's up?

GB. How's everything with our resident guy. Your harem misses you.

Sooz- Now that I am looking at your avi I am noticing those two beauties. Not sure how I missed that before. What a cool picture! I am going off the starchy stuff tomorrow and will be doing meat and eggs along with you.

Cheryl: So happy that the scale is starting to move the right direction! So sorry to hear about your Mom. She is certainly having a rough time right now. Does she live alone? Sometimes the doctors worry about prescribing pain meds that might make them fall. I took care of my dear gm until she finally had to go in a nursing home at the age of 97, she died at 99. So we went through a lot in the years before that, and it is very hard when you can't make everything okay for the people you love so much. I hope they help her quickly. Hugs and prayers for you both.

GB: I am kind of glad to hear that men have some of the same struggles we have during swimsuit season. My dh got me a house with my own pool, so now I can do my thing without worrying about other people. I wish I could tell you how to lose that last 10 pounds, but I haven't got that close to goal yet...

Misty- I know you had to make another trip today, I hope it went okay.

Cuda- Don't sweat the diet right now, you have to find out what is going on. Don't add any stress to what you already have. We will be here when you need us... hang in there.

Pat- are you keeping warm in Maui?? Okay I am officially jealous.

I was still a little out of it today. I am going to try and hit the gym in morning with dd. The wedding countdown is on and we are going to be hitting it hard. Oh yeah Deb- I haven't had any wine since I got sick on Friday. I don't even have any in the house.
Do you feel sorry for me now??

V yes Mom lives alone now. She lived with me a year while she recovered from her tornado injuries and built a new house. She is 82. Or will be in May. She is alert and gets around pretty good except for the bum leg. She is learning she has to have some help doing things. I just wish we could find out what is causing this new pain.

Hope you get back to 100% quick. That wedding isn't too far off.

Yep Cheryl, we are still stateside. Don't leave until April 5 for Vallarta but Monday night we go to our favorite Mexican place in town. So glad your Mom's pain has subsided. It's an awful way to live otherwise.

GB: I know all about that going down and back up in the same spot. Aggravating.

V: Jump on in here with me. Meat and eggs pretty good. I sure don't get hungry. I do only 2 meals a day. Wedding?? What's this wedding Cheryl talks about? Thanks on the grand-twins. They are so fun!


DD is still under the weather so we have 3 grandkids here again tonight. Off to snuggle.

Had Boston again yesterday and DH ear looks better. The swelling went down enought to put a wick in it to heal faster and the back again next Tuesday. Now getting back to plan starting with the gym this morning and major food shopping. Thank you all for the kind support on my Rocco.

Cheryl ss that your Mom is going through all that pain. She's been through so much. Hope the pain goes away fast.

Deb NO wine what happened, are you still making it.

It's going to take me awhile to catch up on everyone but I will before the end of the day.

Pat: Me too on DD.... What happened was that she was sitting in a chair at work across from her boss getting her annual review when the chair fell apart and she hit the ground. Really messed up her back but at least the baby (Jaxon David) is fine. We are headed to Princeville Kauai in September. It'll be our first time in HI.

Did you get more sleep Deb? I am sleepy today!

Misty, so glad to hear from you. Glad DH is getting better each day. Hopefully those exhausting trips to Boston will end soon.

It'll be steak and eggs for my first meal today. Stayed away from the scale because it just keeps calling me so I'm gonna ignore it.

Have a great morning everyone!

That's what I was going to say to Sooz! Was going to tell her...Let's put our scales in Deb's BB closet!

Deb~Yeah...I had trouble sleeping last night too! Did the chic-boobs a few days ago. 1 left 4 my lunch today. & Finished off the big Kale salad yesterday. Hope LB's bridge is easily repairable.

Sooz~Her Chair fell Apart! Dang! Bet she got a Good Annual Report after all that! Kewl...Kauai in Sept! You're going to Luv it!

Misty~Glad DH's ear is getting better. Yeah...sounds like you could use some "me" time.

Speaking of scales...mine has been Up the past few days. Need to nip it in the bud! I feel soo Bloated.
Sleep was up/down last night w/strange dreams in between. Finally, got an hour or 2 in & woke up to Birds chirping like I was living inside an Aviary! Off to Yoga in a bit. Looks like grilled chicken for lunch & fish for dinner.

Hi guys! I am on the meat and eggs today.. but so far no eggs. I had coffee for breakfast and cubed steak for lunch. Tonight will be grilled chicken thighs. So I probably will wait for eggs until tomorrow... unless I cook up a few deviled eggs. I did get to the gym early despite not sleeping very well. We had news of a mother and her 2 childeren being shot in our area. In fact it was only a few blocks from dd's house. It was a domestic dispute and the police were searching for the man who took off on foot. It happened right before bedtime and I just could not settle down. Anyway they caught the guy wandering around, he had cut his own wrists. Such an awful story, except that despite being shot multiple times the mom and her children are going to survive.

I went to a local butcher today and got quite a bit of meat. My inlaws gave me a nice gift certificate for doing so much for the anniversary dinner. I thought it would be perfect for my meat and egg diet.

Got to run now.. forgot I was picking up ds from school today. Talk to you all later.

Well made it to the gym and food shopping. Made a nice beef stew for tonight. Haven't cooked in awhile can't wait to eat, but on plan.

Sooz wow that was an awful fall for your DD. Lucky she has you to watch the twins. How's her back today, better I hope. Did you ever make to watch Freeze with the girls? My GD wants us to take her and her friend.

V ss you got the flu, seems like everyone is getting some form of it this year. Glad your feeling better though.

Cheryl ss moms still having all that pain. What did the Drs say are they thinking anything that will help with the pain? How did you break your oven door, I must of missed that one.

Miss V that's scary but glad they caught him and they the children and Mom will be ok. Nice having the certificate. The one we won I used on all beef last month, I love that I got it all and didn't have to pay a thing.

Pat birds cherping sounds like spring to me. Getting anothe northeaster along the coast of Ma. but it's going to miss us Just heavy winds and very cold, but sure better than the white stuff. Your so right I need some me time. But still have to wait until I go get Rocco, about a week I think. The full dress ceremony and will retire his number on the wall with the rest of the firemen. That's going to be so hard.

Deb how did he make out at the dentist?? I should of known that it wasn't you that ran out of wine

Cheryl I was never far away , just trying to figure my head out. Anyway almost a 1 day in . I do most days then about 8 or so I mess up. I do hope they figure what is going on with you mother. Our mothers aren't far apart in age , mine will be 80 this year, another reason I want to go home. She is in Florida at the moment, my oldest son just arrived there so she will be happy. Misty enjoy your home cooked meal , that's what I missed the most when we had to be away. Hope you don't have to go to Boston anytime soon if they are getting that crazy winter storm like Nova Scotia. Glad you got to the gym we all need some me time. Hope your DH is doing well. V that sounds scary for sure , glad they got him and enjoy your meat Sooz that's awful about the chair I hope her back is ok . Pat and Deb I had a crappy sleep last night too, slept ok till 3:30 but have been up ever since. Deb hope you guy made out ok at the dentist. GB some of us just seem to go back and forth in the same spot but your getting close to your goal so that has to be exciting. My walking , snowshoeing friend is coming back on Thurs till Tues and we are suppose to have great weather (for us) so its about time I got back at it. I cant put my scales in the closet I need them to stare at me and make me feel guilty

Oven door. Is on.

Story- I had gunk between the outside window and inside window on the door. So I took it off and took it all apart. When I was lifting the two pieces apart , the heard a crackle then more crackle and more. The outer window broke. Panic and crying. Know DH will be upset. He is out of town a couple days. Knots in stomach. Comes home. I tell him. No big deal must have been defective. You just never know. So. It is back together. He is out of town again. And I will see what I can break this week.
