  • Gratitudes: Today: Modern technology/implants to replace two teeth, even though not sure where the $$ will come from ;} Yesterday: views of black cows in spring green pastures. Thursday: Masseuse gave an extra 20 minutes. Wednesday: only two shoulder PT stretches, should be easy to fold into morning routine. Busy week,…
  • Just heard back from Katla. “… [the eclipse] was amazing! We were lucky to have a blue sky and a good spot to watch the eclipse at my daughter’s place. … hummingbirds aren't here yet. They spend time in the South & I don't know when they'll come back to Illinois. ... I miss my fitness pal friends. I am focused on DH’s…
  • Today’s gratitude: adolescent and teen years in Ukiah where I could walk to school and ride my bike anywhere all summer. Took car in this morning to swap studded tires for standards. Instead of sitting bathed in tire scent, took walk. Soon as I got away from the highway the smells, sounds and sights really lifted my…
  • Today’s gratitude: The sight of Joe with his walking stick, accompanying the dogs down the drive toward the powerline meadow. Barbie the “when visiting my house…” amen, sister, AMEN! :laugh: Kylia, Lisa and Linda, thank you. You have sold me on lvp. Alas, like Heather, I have not the $$ and Joe would not be able to…
  • Today’s gratitude: Joe’s eye doctor has another drop to prescribe to lower the pressure in his eyes… and we have the resources to pay for it. Lisa “swoop de woo” :laugh: How I admire you for taking on this project, and FINISHING it! Not my gifts. When you say the lvp is waterproof except at the edges, do you mean at the…
  • Today’s gratitude: full freezer/pantry, sound roof, woodstove. Rita Bravissima! You are the poster child for what wholesome, proper nutrition can do. Surely as you ease off the anxiety meds, your food cure will help there too. Well done! Would your renal doc recommend a pcp since he declined… :} Linda Doubtfire is versions…
  • Today’s gratitude: Power stayed on all night despite strong winds. After doing PT before breakfast yesterday just couldn’t make myself move more. ;{ Beth bravo to your son for helping and foo on the staff. Grr. Tracey his brother is the only one Joe speaks to, on the phone, perhaps once a month. The nephew is an adult. He…
  • Today’s gratitude: tea, and a working Roomba ;} Yesterday’s gratitude:: Joe made it home safe from Medford. Last night over indulged in red wine and NY Super Fudge Chunk ice cream with predictable scale results. Worse, other than two dog walks, did nothing strength-building. Fresh start today with wii balance games.…
  • Today’s gratitude: Joe telling me about the Count of Monte Christo, he just finished the first book where Dantès did good for all who tried to do good to him, and is not starting the second book getting into the revenge. I’m thankful I’ve never been hurt so very badly that I would be consumed with vengeance. Carol the…
  • Ps to Machka, it would creep me out, too, if strangers touched my hair. Eeuww!
  • Today’s gratitude: Barbie for the fresh start, no fooling! The Chetco effect bringing clear blue skies and seas, warm sunshine and no wind… yet… Oh what a beautiful mornin’, oh what a beautiful day, I’ve got a beautiful feelin’… Let’s not tempt fate. Woke up to the sounds of scrabbling in the bathroom heating duct. Pulled…
  • Today’s gratitude: hugging Bethany’s former musician in church today. Pastor’s memory-(and tear)-provoking sermon. Beautiful blue sky/sea day but blustery! 19-33 mph winds aren’t very lamb-like ;) April (gentle hugs held extra long)) Prayers for your son, your father and you. Tracey hope sleep continues to improve, can’t…
  • Allie ((hugs)) and prayers for Tracy, both babies, sMiles and Kyle. What painful news. ((hugs)) Rebecca what a mess! All that mold sure wasn’t doing Lee any good. ((hugs)) Belated welcome back @trail070x C from California! Pip ((hugs)) and prayers for peace. ((hugs)) Lisa thankful Kelsey got moved, sorry it took the lucky…
  • Today’s gratitude: able to do wii balance games this morning, not well but done. Had to get down onto the floor to search for Shadow’s pill/treat and really struggled to get back up. Thankful I have another chance today to get back to the PT exercises. Wednesday I thought I lost my wallet. Panicked as it had $400 cash for…
  • Today’s gratitude: Lanette thanks for the insulin resistance rabbit hole survey and Dr. Bikman “Why we get sick” recommendation. Triglycerides/HDL at 1.4 last year, will see what happens in June. If Glucose the same as Fasting Blood Sugar I’m ok at 83, but can’t find ever having had an A1C test. Look forward to hearing…
  • Today’s gratitude: sense of taste, fuji apples, edge of Joe’s pancake and the warning that that cheese is “off.” Popping in to scan a couple of pages before puppy tummy time. To all who had bad early experiences with dentists, we are singing the same song. Four permanent teeth pulled before I was nine “to make room”. So…
  • Gratitude for the past week: Oral surgery (to extract a tooth “stub” with a root that curved/hooked) went well, was unconscious before they put anything, even their fingers, in my mouth. Some swelling, discomfort and bruising but mitigated by rX. Finally feeling a little more like myself, danced an hour yesterday and…
  • Read all the posts but from phone not laptop so no word doc with comments. Waiting for pre-op Valium to kick in. Hardest will be no fluids, not even water after 4 am. Joe is being a champion at thoughtful care. That’s today’s gratitude. A far cry from when, decades ago, he refused to pick me up from the ER after I’d broken…
  • Today’s gratitude: MRI today ;) Allie ((hugs)) Poor Alfie. Heather ((gentle hugs held extra long)) You are so right, about your pain, your life, your decisioni. It is horrifying you have not yet been properly examined/diagnosed. Hard to make decisions in the dark. What Lisa said about Johnny wanting you healthy more than…
  • Today’s gratitude: cozy, warm cabin in the misty, foggy woods. Won a cabbage at Bunco yesterday, will cook with corned beef and potatoes tomorrow for a late “Irish day” meal. Shoulder MRI tomorrow, fingers X’d. Terri “turned the stone to the dry side”? Lanette I think we’re all different but it would be amazing to me for…
  • Today’s gratitude: options, like Joe choosing to listen to music and not the news… Ava (aka @javaplace) Thanks and welcome! Lisa ((gentle hugs)), what you said about our pets just knowing when we hurt, and the time and distance from art. :love: your fridge mural. Fallen leaves, snow, green grass, yup, winter in the west.…
  • Today’s gratitude: last evening’s sunset and the eyes to see it. Rosemarie your tulips pic made me smile, brightened my morning. As did your comment about meeting new people. Well done! Rori always joyful to see your smiling face and hear that you and Mars are safe and cosy. .Lisa that “…almost fell off my…” meme was a…
  • Today’s gratitude:pastel sky and sea. Calm, mild morning. Yesterday: Brake light repair cost $6, part only no labor charged! Good company, lots of laughter and successful shopping. Yummy vegan lunch with leftovers. If you’re ever in North Bend, OR, stop at the Tin Thistle for the Hawaiian Teriyaki veggie burger. Watch out,…
  • Carol, Allie and Michele, I’ve been having the same problem with getting to the mfp community section and my bookmarks for the past two days. Machka says the community threads are hosted on a separate platform called “Vanilla” from the calorie counter/food database portion. Heather you’re seeing it as a “solvable issue,”…
  • Today’s gratitude: really good second sleep. Joe going willingly to the ENT. Joe has an MD appointment coming up, postponed because he didn’t know he needed bloodwork. He’s inspired to scale back on the brandy and up the activity. Finger’s X’d! Lisa meant to comment on the frustrating text you received. Poster child for…
  • Today’s gratitude: When Joe announced he was taking both dogs for a walk across the lane I asked if I could join him, if he would wait 10 minutes for me to get dressed. Instead of making a face, he said “Yes,” We had a great walk! We’ll do it again. :heart: Welcome @Julieann404 ! There are gals here from all over the globe…
  • Today’s gratitude: Line dance class. Savings to cover Joe’s DDS appointment surprise. Machka Happy to hear of your bicycle ride, thanks for the Vanilla info. Intrigued to hear about your plan. Heather had to google your paper sizes ;) looks like A3 is what I would call “journal” or 11x17” ish. So glad you’re feeling a bit…
  • Sleepy, skimming, accountability tomorrow, maybe. Rita thanks for sharing the functional diet NP’s info. Something that helps me is to slow down and chew thoroughly. Digestion begins in the mouth so the loss of that gland really affects you. Mfp is $19.99 a month? No wonder I don’t subscribe. Now if it were $0.99 like…
  • Today’s gratitude: power was restored after only a few hours last night, mostly while I was sleeping. ;) Kim that’s a loving gift to your mom, cooking the cabbage and carrots with the corned beef and potatoes. I’m with you, carrots and cabbage are better not boiled ;) Allie ((prayers)) continue for Carmine, Tracy, Kyle and…
