I'll try some of that Kopi Luwak coffee! I'm still in recovery mode after the grandkids headed back to Colorado. I ran the dishwasher 3 times a day and finally got the last load in the sink cleared out yesterday. Got the kitchen cleaned up and will tackle bathrooms today. Then it's time to work in the tomatoes!

Enjoy your day, everyone!

Hi Everyone,

Well, driver's license chore done. rah Headed to front door of facility, followed directions to red stop sign for seniors and handicapped. Was told to go to Manager's line. Next staff had me take a quick pic, signed some paperwork, not a colored temp license and was told actual license would be in mail soon. Apparently, they wanted proof that the p.o. box was assigned to my address. Whole thing took 15 minutes. I gotta remember to take advantage of the perks of my age.

Started PT on Friday, lots of stuff to work on. I have 2x week appts thru mid July. I was lucky to get all appts with the person I worked with a few years ago. She told me's booked cause people are dealing with physical PSTD from being quarantined. Bodies aren't used to basically sitting in one place all day without having to transport to stores or work.

Always amazes me how we go from freezing cold in Feb to blazing hot a few months later. We've got daily temps in high 80s, and it isn't even officially summer yet.

Ana, I've had food poisoning too and didn't report it either. It's hard to prove. Got it from a place I'd been enjoying food from for several years. Haven't been back there since. Periodically, I remember how good it tasted, but can't bring myself to eat it again.

Pup is slowing down. Sleeps most all day on Sunday when play care is closed. He's not skeletal, but leg bones are becoming more prominent, and I notice his leg doesn't lift as high to go to bathroom. I may have mentioned something about this before, but day care told me they have a new 6 month old client who has been playing with Huey, poking and chasing him around. At least he's having fun. puppy

Good afternoon to you all. wave2

We are having a hot sunny afternoon of 88F right now with a small wind.

All the flowers are growing as it must and my yellow rosebush must have around 40 roses. joy

I did my walk this morning when the temp was good for it.

Well-done, butterflybabe! So glad you finally got your PT going. I have a feeling that's going to make a huge difference for you!

Coolish this morning, so an excellent time to head back and try to make more headway against the weeds!

Supposed to be in the 90's here by Friday, so we will be glad for the pool!

Thanks Drac! Another factor may a sleep issue. Neurologist having me come in to try on some other masks. Had my current 'brand' several years now but now air keeps leaking out. I don't hear it but stats show on data rad out. If a new mask works better, that may also help my body recover faster and better. Even the tiniest bit of lack of healthy sleep slowly deteriorates the body. Couldn't get in for that appt until end of June, but that'll come soon enough. I had having to take so much time with doc appts, but if the result is feeling much better, and back to when I could walk without pain, that's all I ask.

Have a great day, everyone!

Good sleep is definitely huge in healing and general well-being. Sleep issues are even related to things like high blood pressure. I totally feel your pain with all the doctor's appointments! There have been weeks where hubby and I check the calendar not to see IF we have doctor's appointments, but how many! But once you get through them all, it's worth it to feel well. Hubby is having a ton of them to deal with back pain... another MRI today. I have a friend who never went to the doctor because she was "never sick." When she started having a lot of fatigue and issues with lymph nodes, I nagged her until she went. Turns out she has CLL, a type of lymphoma and has probably had it for a long time. She had her last chemo Friday and her bloodwork is now perfect. However, during all this she also found out she has had uncontrolled diabetes for a long time. She is finally getting some control over that, but still has a long way to go with her blood sugar. Since she is the sole caregiver for about 50 special needs animals, it's critical she stay well! Plus, she will be 70 this year, so this is when stuff starts happening! I'd rather stay ahead of it like you are. I think she has also learned her lesson.

I'm glad your sleep is being looked after now. Sleep is pretty much every thing. I've always had bad insomnia, since I was a kid. Eventually it got so bad my doctor gave me sleeping pills so I could work. Once I retired I was determined to sleep naturally. I did all the things you're supposed to do, but it t never happened. I was a two-to three-hour a night sleeper. I got to the point where I felt I couldn't drive safely and I was having severe dizzy spells and blood sugar crashes. My current doctor put his foot down and put me back on sleep medication.

Not being able to sleep is the pits. I haven't slept well for months, often getting by on 2 hours max. I don't nap during the day but it made no difference. Even getting out during the day for some fresh air did no good. Last night, however, I slept for a solid 12 hours! Couldn't believe it. I guess my body had just had enough of sleepless nights. Feeling much refreshed today!

Not much on the agenda for today, spending it quietly with hubby. Probably watch a movie or two or one of our favourite series.

Much love,

Mary hearts

Mary, not being able to sleep is horrible and I am so glad you got a good nights sleep last night. I get insomnia from stress and it makes working all day hard sometimes. I bet it feels great!

Hi ho...hi ho...it's off to work I go!

I'm not surprised your sleep is bad considering the stress you must be under now. Has your doctor suggested any medications? I know that I would have collapsed a long time ago if my doctor hadn't insisted that I take sleep medication so that I can deal with being the primary caregiver for my husband. It makes such a difference.

Nothing for me this morning... leaving shortly for a dental appointment. VERY hot and steamy this morning, so it's going to be toasty today.

Finally got a pic of those tiny little chicks that hatched out on June 1st. Hope this link works! So far, no black snakes have found them. They are at least twice as big as the day they hatched!

Have a good day, everyone!

Aww. So cute. Do you breed them for eggs? All along the backroads here people sell fresh eggs. We bought some once and my husband freaked because they were all different shapes and sizes and colours. I think it was a little bit too close to the actual hen's anatomy for him. lol But they were tasty.

Still too windy for boating. This is shaping up to be just like last year, where we only managed to get out about 15 times all summer.

Since several of you posted about the importance of sleep, let me share with you bit more of my 'story'. I began having major problems over 20 years ago. At first it was mainly insomnia brought on menopause and restless legs (inherited from my mom). I was using OTC and then was given a script to help calm my legs, which helped for many years. Then, at annual physical, my physician was concerned about how tired I looked and suggested I get tested for Sleep Apnea. My initial treatment started with a simple mask that covered just my nose, and was later switched to a full-face mask.

I spent 5-10 years trying to find a mask and headgear that were comfortable. My cranium is small. What fits me best is a small adult mask and child size headgear. But the equipment is not sold by the piece. Everything is in sets, and parts are not interchangable. The challenge was finding a way to adjust the straps from the headgear so that the mask was secure and relatively comfortable, without the bottom strap irritating the top of my neck. It wasn't until 2 years ago that I had the bright idea to put on a shower cap before the putting on the mask so that the headgear goes over the cap, so I feel the cap material and not the strap. Hugh difference!

I've dealt with 4 different neurologists and tried/worn about 10 different masks. The air machine itself used to weigh a ton and the computer chip had to be brought to the doc at each visit. Now it's about 3 lbs and data is recorded and downloaded via internet. Doc can pull up my record and make adjustments without my having to visit the office. That is brand new within the last few years.

I learned that it's the quality, not amount of sleep that is important. You can sleep 9 hours, but if your brain keeps waking up, it doesn't go into REM mode which is deep relaxing dream sleep, then it's not healthy. My first sleep test showed that I was getting a just a small percentage of healthy sleep, so my brain and body weren't hardly resting at all. One of my neurologists told me that he had patients concerned that they weren't or couldn't sleep more than 3 or 4 hours. He said if you feel rested and wide awake the day, than that's all you need.

I've had people say 'how can you wear that thing' or 'I could never wear that thing'. My response is, if I don't wear it, I can't think, my body is sluggish and, basically, it leads to a slow death. No, thanks. Believe me, I can tell the difference. I finally purchased a special back up battery for my air machine. Though it's rare where I live, if the electricity goes out, I'll loose sleep, and that's scary.

A few years ago I drafted a small book about my experiences and frustrations with the whole system of finding the right mask, as well as specialists I've dealt with. Now that I'm retired, and I'm hearing more talk about it, I'm starting to get inspired pull that draft out again and get moving on it. There may be books about the clinical side, but a personal story always tells a different side.

Butterflybabe, finishing that book would be wonderful from a personal perspective, and it could be so valuable for other people. I don't have apnea and I've had trouble sleeping since I was about 7 years old, so my insomnia is chemical in nature, some hormone or gland is off-kilter and nobody can figure it out.

I love writing, though I've let it slide over the last few years. I've got a full draft of a novel sitting around on a disc somewhere, though I'm sure I'd be horrified at it now!

Good Day everyone.

Danish for me please, connie.

Cute chicks Drac.

One of my biggest problems sleeping (I have a few) is my cat. Every time I fall into a good sleep she starts pawing at my eyes. I'm thinking it's the eye movement under the lid. Anyway, she is dangerous as she doesn't always just use her paw but likes to stick her claws in. I get afraid to shut my eyes. The other day she rudely woke me up digging her claw into my head up near my temple area. If she does that to my eye, I'm in trouble!

Many moons ago I started trying to write my memoirs. I wish I would have kept at it but that was a lot of work. smile
