Hi everyone!!!

My me time......stayed inside all day today, because it is -14 degrees.

Did my horse chores (left horses in stalls), went to visit Mom and Dad, and sat in the house all day, until chore time tonight. Now watching football.

Going to be an exciting New Years Eve here. And I like it that way, anymore.....

-40 degree chill factor is not good partying weather, but we used to.......

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, whatever it might be.

I'm here coughing and aching

Thanks Deb

Karen I thought our -20 wind chill was bad! You are colder!! We are having a quiet New Years eve.

Gave DH a nebulizer treatment for his cough. Watched tv. Rested. Such party animals.
LD loves the cold but have to watch how long he stays out. Don't want frostbite on his feet.

Bitter cold morning here as well.... only -12 windchill, so not as bad as you guys.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy new years eve. I stayed warm on the couch and watched movies with my guys.

My Dad is back in hospital with new complications. Now we focus on getting him through the current crisis. One day at a time is all we can do.

Despite the mess, I'm trying to get diet back under control...

Good luck with your Dad. That is hard on people. And our eating is the first thing we ignore.

We had -25 this morning, with wind chills -35. Chores were short today.

Nice sleep Deb
I was feeling proud of my 7 and half hours...lol

Off to run some errands and get ds ready to back to school tomorrow. He needs a haircut for sure, he's got that shaggy look going on.

I'm getting paranoid on my Dad and threw a fit at hospital last night and made them run a CT scan on him. He's been having a weird pain in his head neck area on the right side and was acting loopy. So I wanted to make sure we did not have a new bleed going on. I found out that they were giving him muscle relaxers and loratab for his pain. That explained the loopy part to me.
I asked that they just go back to giving him Tylenol instead of narcotics for pain. The scan came back good and I felt like a real loon... but just too many things have gone wrong for the ole guy and I needed to be sure there was no new bleed since they have him on massive blood thinners now. We are hoping he can be released today or tomorrow. Hospitals are the worst place to try and get stronger.

Understand that reaction. It is always good to try and keep up to speed on these things.

V~SS your Dad had some setbacks. It's a good thing that you have been your Dad's advocate during this time. It's a tough thing to have to go through. Try to take care of yourself during this time.

HaHa! SS CJ passed her cold on to you! Get well soon & try not to pass it on to others! Stay home. It's good that you made a pot of soup before you caught your cold.

CJ~Glad you're feeling better! How's Mom?

Karen~Burrr-cold! Stay warm!

I made a pot of Black Eyed Peas w/veggies, sausage & rice on NYrs day. It's supposed to bring good luck for the new year. I did try out a Barre class at another studio last week. I know the owner & she invited me as her guest (saved me $20.). It was a bit much for me. Too much ankle stretch band thingy & a rubber ball between our thighs! And...the Pump it up Music was a Bit too loud for me. Maybe I'll try another one at another time. There's a new studio that opened up close by & they are offering new local students 2 free weeks of classes! Sooo, going to try out some classes there beginning tomorrow. Just finished up my class pass at my usual studio...so, might as well get in some FREE Classes!
We bought a new TV for Xmas. It's sooo much brighter/clearer than our other one! But, now we need a new TV stand/entertainment center for it. Old one doesn't fit. Soo, going shopping for one in a bit. Laters!

Morning! How's everyone feeling? I'm feeling pretty good considering the usual on/off sleep I had last night. Scale doing the up 2 down 2 thing on me. Boring... Bought our new TV entertainment stand yesterday. It's Nice! Off to new yoga place for a Free class.

Deb~How was your Costco run? I did a grocery organic store run yesterday. Get that Nap in too? Tent on the boat as in an awning top?

We listed our Free TV/'entertainment table on Craig's List yesterday & it went Fast! Peeps came to pick it up & gave them some other stuff that they were interested in. It felt good to give to some peeps who really needed some things. 2nd free yoga class yesterday went well. I liked the instructor's style & pace of her class. Going to 3rd class with a different instructor in a bit. Laters...

Pat glad your enjoying your yoga

I cant wait to get back to the YMCA

The tent is just so that we can re-do the teak decks ..

Not sure how long it will take but sure will be nice to get them done then off to the next project

Bought evoo and the 2-pack jar of 4-bean salad
I have been shopping at our farmers market mostly

stopped at the market this morning and bought a bunch of veg for roasting tonight

so many people say that eating plant based is expensive but I got a huge amount of veg for $6.00

I also picked up the huge tent..couldnt carry it it is so big

Deb~Can just see you trying to carry that Tent! You must have looked like an Ant carrying a lump of sugar! I bought Evoo & veggies/fruit too.

Made a Beet salad yesterday. Yum! Grilled up a NY & had Cauli mash for dinner. Another good free class yesterday. Going to my usual place today. There will be live music during Aloha Sunday class today. Besides, I'm not fond of the instructor who is teaching the free class. Off I go & then it's a Wally's shop afterward. Laters...

I called today a cheat day. Been good for a week for food and scale.

We had to go down last night and pick both of my parents up off the floor. DH put a rib out, and my back is sore today. So we told them this morning, that next time we call the perimedics. And going to have conversation tomorrow about home care versus nursing home. Going to give them today to think about things........... Kind of a rough day for me. they have been failing lately.

So we did a breakfast buffet, so I didn''t have to cook bf or lunch.

My sympathies to the others on the list with aging parents........
