WOMEN AGES 50+ FOR OCTOBER 2022
Carol: So glad the news is fairly good for your sister, Kay. Now you will be able to enjoy the week end a little better. My son has been enjoying Top Golf in Atlanta. Do you know anyone who has been doing this? Apparently it is very popular.
Katla: I hope your husband is discharged back to living with you soon. The assisted living where you are sounds like a good set up.
Rebecca: I hope you are feeling better.
Vicki: The employee is just not a good fit for the culture at your place of employment. She will move on ...maybe because she has no choice...and perhaps find a place that suits her better. I hope you are able to see your granddaughter this week end.
Kim: The Beer Bread sounds delicious.
Barbie: A walk with a friend nearly every morning is a treasure!
Lanette: Hope your neighbor enjoys the new gym!
Machka9--I would do that....open a cupboard and appreciate how the towels are folded!
Well I looked at our budget with all the caretaking costs and gave myself an anxiety attack! I am doing better now partly because we have another sunny beautiful day outside! Yesterday I made pumpkin lattes with pumpkin, vanilla, brown sugar, milk, cinnamon and coffee. Soooo tempting to add more brown sugar to make it sweeter but I resisted!6
Today I got good news. DH will be moving in with me in a few days. I am delighted.

cityjaneLondon Posts: 10,986 MemberSaga sent our luggage labels, along with the time we will get picked up. It makes it feel nearer!
Time passes so fast these days.
I also managed to spend my £10 gift voucher I was sent by an online site I use. I didn’t want to buy something that was more expensive than I can get elsewhere, just for the sake of it, but I found a double fronted, long sleeved, V neck, tee-shirt in teal. Free postage. So it ends up as £22, which I'm happy with. I love double fronted as I don't wear a bra. Perfect for the cruise!
Love to all, Heather UK xxxxxxxx6
Heather: I am not familiar with double fronted shirts. I do love the color of this shirt. This will be great for the cruise and look great on you!0
Carol- that is amazing news for your sister. Prayers really do work!!
Heading out to go walk the wetlands for an hour or so before Ezie gets out of school. Will walk again at the park with a friend this evening. Make up for not walking yesterday.
Will walk the dog tomorrow to get my 5th day of activity for the week.
Spent an hour or so cleaning some of the pantry shelves in the garage. Trying to get rid of the temptations for the mice/rats. Really need to get them organized so I know what I have so I don't think I am out and buy more. Tossed the expired stuff- Will take a few more days to get this side cleaned out and then really organize it.
Worked but then since I didn’t need to go to the soup kitchen, I was able to get to the gym...yea! So I did a spinning workout. I’ll go for a walk in a little bit. Just work tomorrow. Hopefully, I can at least get a walk in.
Communication: I prefer to communicate by email. This way I can address it when it works into my schedule. Sometimes I find a phone call is best, especially if I’m inquiring about the health of someone.
Barbara – how horrible the bone loss! The good thing is that it was caught early so it can be addressed. If it is alendronate related, fortunately, there are other things you can use other than biphosonates. I take the injection of prolia. That’s probably not a guarantee of bone problems, tho. At least it isn’t a biphosonate, tho
Cleaning ovens – I’ll wait for a cold day to run the self-clean function. I really want to get my glass clean. But there is a part of me that is hesitant to remove the drawer.
Carol – what good news about your sister! Have a great visit
katla – how wonderful!
Heather – really like the t-shirt. I will wear a t-shirt with a v-neck. I really can’t stand to have something all around my neck. But I need to wear one at BK. Well, they pay me to wear one so I’ll wear it.
Speaking of BK: a while ago there was water dripping from the ceiling. First on me, then on the food. So one of the employees suggested that I do the prep in the other sink. When I asked the “manager” what we were going to do she just said “I don’t know”. That’s when the other employee suggested the other sink.
Well, it’s started dripping again. I really think it’s the a/c. That’s what it was the other time. Anyway, the water was dripping on me so I asked if I could do the prep in the other sink. Angel (a manager) told me “OK” so I did. When another manager came in she said that I couldn’t, that if Ren (some sort of inspector for BK) ever saw that he’d be upset. Well, if the department of health ever saw water from an unknown source dripping in the prep area, it really wouldn’t matter what Ren thought. The water is dripping on me right now.
I think I’m going to text the store manager and ask her what plan “B” will be if the dripping continues. I hate to bother her, but I need to know what I should do.
Off to check my email then probably a walk.
Has anyone heard from Beth? I miss her! I hope she has been able to get her mom in a better place near where she lives.
Michele ~ I don't know how the BK can pass an inspection with that leak.

Carol, That is really good news about your sister!!! Yay!!!
I miss Beth, too.
In the past week I have filed a report with adult protective services, filed a fraud report with Social Security, spoken to a detective, and filed a report with the assisted-living licensing division. My brother reported this morning that the owner of his assisted living facility yelled at him to get out of the bathroom and then shoved his pills at him. Angry woman. She should not be running a residential assisted living facility. Fortunately, my brother has a very long fuse and is able to compartmentalize. He spent the day painting and listening to the Christian radio station that he loves.
Here is the painting he did this morning for your enjoyment:

Karen I love your brothers artwork! He is very talented.4

Ah, Karen, how beautiful is that? So glad you're there working to keep him safe.1
Carol, good news from your sister. I love her name, by the way.
Barbara, are you saying that taking the alendronate is what caused your teeth problems? Yikes!
I may or may not have told y'all that my daughter and her husband bought a new house, in the same county (the county Carol lives in) but a better school district - about 20 minutes away from their current home. They are waiting to sell their old house until they are completely out of it and have been moving the little stuff one day at a time and putting it away in the new house. I went out yesterday, and she and I moved her kitchen. She said she would give me free rein to organize it like I wanted, but of course I got her input. it took us all day, but we got it done, and it looks fantastic! On the way home I got to thinking about how I organized the appliances and realized that I had not seen a mixer. I texted her when I got home, and sure enough! I missed one entire side of the kitchen island in the old house - mixer, waffle iron, and some other random things. Luckily I knew exactly where it should go to fit with the "zones" I had designed. This morning, I could barely walk, I was so tired. I got up, took one Aleve and one Tylenol Arthritis and soldiered on. I feel fine now. I did get my 10,000 steps, but did not do my Friday strength training workout. It's all good. I should get it in tomorrow, and still have a day of rest before I do Monday's. The movers were moving the big stuff today, so tonight will be their first night to sleep in the new house. I'm excited for them, but I would not want to clean this one. It is huge!
Speaking of cleaning, all this talk of oven doors made me look at mine. I should not have done that! It is pretty disgusting.
The funeral home finally got my father's headstone up. It looks really good and makes my mother happy.
I am still fighting the stress pounds from his illness, but I have been better in October. I have kept my eating boundaries more days than not, and have gotten over 10,000 steps every day. I'm down a couple of pounds from my high at the beginning of October. When I logged my calories for today, I only had 23 grams of sugar. That is probably a record for me.
Regarding oven doors -- I've never cleaned the glass on any oven door I've had. I've generally wiped down the inside and outside, but have never cleaned in between the glass panes. I wouldn't even have an idea how to do that.
Regarding kitchens - one thing I really miss about Canadian houses is kitchens with upper cupboards. Some of the newer houses here have them, or houses with remodelled kitchens, but a lot of Australian houses don't have upper cupboards. We've built a shelf on one side to hold tea, coffee, and spices. We do have a pantry, but half of it holds dishes and the other half holds food. The lower cupboards hold pots and pans and appliances. It's a tight fit.
Regarding organising - one of the things that can prevent a person (like me) from organising is having nowhere to put things. That might be because there's no room or it could be because it requires a decision.
Our place is 1140 sq ft on the main floor and about half that on the lower floor. The lower floor is mostly unfinished, so we use it for storage (stuff in bins), our workout area, and a workshop area. The upper floor has a reasonably large living area and 3 tiny bedrooms. The bedrooms are so small, we sleep in one bedroom and have our dressers, etc. in another ... our sleeping pod and our dressing room.
So when I get organising, I have to make decisions like ... should this go into a bin into storage, should we take this to a charity shop, or can I stuff this into one of the rooms. And often I just don't want to deal with those kind of decisions.

Carol – the leak just happened. It seems to me like there isn’t much communication. Like I told the manager who was on last Sat. that there was leaking. I somehow doubt she told the store manager. I bet nothing would be done if I hadn’t said something. No one seems to really care until it’s too late. They don’t care unless it affects them. But that’s just my take on it. I guess what kind-of annoys me is that I’m expected to do my job with water dripping down on me. I tell you, if I didn’t enjoy this job, I would be out of there
Karen – beautiful artwork.
Drkatie – congrats to your daughter. You most certainly got in your strength training!
