WOMEN AGES 50+ FOR OCTOBER 2022
1948CWB Posts: 929 MemberI spent over an hour trying to log in to MFP this morning. Over the years, I have used 3 different email addresses and it would not accept any of the passwords. And, it would not send me an email to reset the password. Ugh! Then, all of a sudden it sent me 3 emails to reset password. Now I'm not sure who I am...

We had quite a storm last night! Knocked out power in the area until around 4am. I'm so grateful for our generator. Last night when I went to get my brother, on the main street leading to our subdivision were 6-8 utility vehicles with several crews out to fix the lines that were damaged by gusting trees. We had no tree or structural damage, but it was a doozy of a storm!

not sure the # in kilometers but I am at 92 miles so far for this month. 167 for Sept.170 in Aug.
Looking forward to talking with the wellness coach this afternoon to see what I need to do different to loose some weight(plus get my other numbers down too)
Almost time to head out to walk another 5miles plus Zumba tonight. My friend that took me to my first class but then stopped going to go to another gym, is now back going with me. It is just once a week now that it gets too dark to do it in the park at 6:30PM but her and I or another friend and I walk for that hour instead. This week we won't as the teacher is having everyone meet for a little get together at a Mexican place a couple blocks away. I will walk a little extra that day -street tacos are what I will be having that night.
Thanks- finished off my day at almost 21,000 steps/9.4miles yesterday. Says I burnt 2550 calories but I only ate 1100. Hopefully I will see a loss this week.
I will be at my mom's this weekend so won't get to walk with my friend Friday night or walk with MIL's dog Saturday morning(will be up at 4AM helping at the food program/food bank and get some steps in there but not constant walking), so I want to walk a little extra during the day and see if my friend wants to walk Thursday instead of Friday- maybe walk extra beings we aren't walking tomorrow night either(taco's instead)

Has it been since January 2021?
Father's Day of 2020 was the last time he got a text from her. What's significant about January of 2021?0
Lisa - I listen to the Dan Harris podcasts regularly and have the first two books. I like him because he is not woo-woo. I believe Barbie listens to him as well.
Being down on yourself is definitely not a sensible idea. Dan Harris would say, the clichés are so often right, It's OK to be not OK. It really is. ❤️ 🧡 💛 💚 💙 💜
I'm at the kids house soon to be getting a lift when the girls go off to swimming. Edie has recently graduated to a more strenuous swimming club, but she wants to see her teacher to say goodbye and thank you.

DH's new crown. Bea collected the leaves on the way home from school and Edie provided the expertise.

Kids not talking— my DH’s 2 daughters haven’t talked to him in 20 years! I don’t know what happened but I’m sure he does but is in denial. I have the oldest’s phone number and texted her happy birthday as I have every year and this year she actually answered. Need to go slow. When my son was having issues the begging of this year I got a one month membership to do background checks. I used that to find out that DH has a step- granddaughter, a granddaughter and grandson the step is in college, the other two in high school. Never knew before I played detective. I’m moving very slow with re-connecting. Not sure if they will ever….
Ps, glad I’m not the only one with weird internal temperature control! 4
Lisa: I hope your Iron levels are okay.
Katla: I am thinking about you and your DH.
Karen: You were very generous to your brother. I agree that sometimes people resent generosity and it can be walking on egg shells knowing whether to help or not help. The caretakers that come into help my DH are often on thin financial ice and it can be a quandry as to how to proceed.
Machka: Congrats on getting so much walking in!
Sue: Have a good time in Iowa!
Heather: Happy Birthday to your DH. I didn't realize your DH was a writer as well as you. I love the pictures!
Jeannie: Good for you for paying the debt off. I would have been overwhelmed with the situation with you EX and your daughter. Maybe the situation with your daughter will improve once the money situation settles down. I hope she is working and on her own.
Rebecca: This has gone on a while now. I hope the medical doctors can help you.
RV Rita: I sweat starting at the back of the head when I am in uncomfortable social situations. I can't control it. I actually do better on zoom then when I am in person with a group.
DLFK: I am jealous that you are so active. Walking and Zumba. Sounds terrific!
Lanette: I was just telling my DH I need to watch a u tube video on inflating tires because the tire light on the disability van goes off whenever it gets cold.
I walked this morning at my favorite college campus with a pond and nice architecture. I am much better rested now. I have a to do list but nothing very exciting on it. I will make an effort to see a friend later this week. The gardening club is having a fund raiser luncheon that I would like to attend. I am not a member but it is open to the public....but I am afraid something will come up last minute and I would let down the person who I asked to attend with me. I am afraid I sound awfully boring. Caretaking will do that to a person!5
Just picked up this rascal from the groomers
Funny he barks at everything.. but at the groomers he is as quiet as a mouse... go figure..
Miles doing well,Tracy said there family pictures came out good..
Tracy just sent me this picture ,they took a walk and this is after there walk.. Grandma got him the swing lol8

One of my favorite people. Speaks to me today...
That was a great TED talk. I love Dan Harris. I've read both his books and listened to almost all of his podcasts. I recommend them to anyone who will listen.
Love the pics, Allie. Both are darlings.
Feeling very blessed.
I very gingerly asked my son if his house deliberations had got anywhere. I didn't tell him it had kept me awake most of the night.
He said they most probably would not go ahead with the house purchase as they didn't want to borrow more money in this unsure financial situation.
They are going ahead with the reduced renovation. They are now thinking of renting in Portslade for the duration of the renovation. That is the next area to us along the coast westward. Much, much cheaper than Hove. Half the price. They need to book a rental now, for after Christmas, so decisions must be made very soon.
I hope they will make the right decision. Obviously it means a drive to the girls ' school and I don't know about Max's school bus, but it's only for 6 months. I hope we can help them out in the logistics. Won't be able to walk them home from school.
Hope I sleep tonight.

Karen--Pray you get what you need to get your brother his ID. He is so lucky to have your help.
Rita--Sending prayers and hugs.
Karen--Sounds like you are getting things sorted and glad to hear that Emerson is helping. The floor plan looks like you will have lots of room. I agree it is so hard to decide what is the best way to go.
KJ--Sounds like the doctor gave you some good advice. I know easier said than done. But hope you can arrange things to give you more down time just for yourself.
Flea--Good to see you post. Sending prayers and hugs.
Deb--I had my first one at 60 and then one this year when I turned 65.
Allie--Great news, hope the wait is not long.
Katla--Sorry to hear there is a delay in DH joining you. Pray it is a short one.
Heather--Looks like a fun birthday party for Johnny.
Rebecca--Sorry you are still having so much pain. Hope they can get it figured out soon.
Well caught up but out of time.

My sis, best friend and husband all said I needed to, so I appealed the denial for social security disability. All online, thank goodness. Long day dealing with that.
Update about Destiny from her mom this afternoon-
Update: sorry I know it been a couple of weeks that I have posted on what we are planning for the next course of actions. but we have been doing a lot of test to see if she qualifies for a clinical trail. That Boston children’s hospital is heading it up.. along side UCSF.. But she officially has gotten into the trail, as of today.. she will be starting it on Friday.. and as long as it is working she can be on it for 2 years.. also this means she can do it at home..6
Miles chowing down dinner
Today is son in laws Birthday and Tracy finally got the recipe his grandma used to make him .. which brought s tear to his eye..
All went well..
Worked. Got out early so I went to the gym (yea me!). Stopped at the WalMart near there to see if they maybe carried Vince’s ice cream. I’m not sure if they carry it or not, but they didn’t have any. Then stopped at the Salvation Army (didn’t get anything) and then Food Lion to get kiwi that were on sale. This is the last day for the sale. Ceramics tonight
Karen – unbelievable! So glad you are safe from the storm
The guy about the roof is coming here tomorrow. I’m so relieved that we’re going with him.
Remember the lady I told you about that we went to see who is in hospice? Well, she passed away today
Debbie – that’s great for Destiny!!!
Just got back from ceramics. Newcomer bowling tomorrow. Also, the guy to look at our roof will be here in the afternoon
