Good Morning Chicks! I simply cannot believe that I beat you all here. Though I did have to be up and showered by 7:00 this morning. That's rough. I've definitely transitioned to retirement. I get up early but don't do the whole shower/makeup thing usually until later.

I'm doing well on program most days. Yesterday we ate Chicken White Bean Chili and corn cakes out of our freezer. They were yummy. We also made fresh green beans because we were really hungry.

Mary Ann, I hope you get a great and fast diagnosis.

Sandra, I thought you had a TON on your plate in terms of activities. I'm glad you've decided to mellow a bit.

Nancy, we had PJ day but we were still really busy trying to get done what we can't do when the guys are here. I made homemade thousand island salad dressing and applesauce while Jim did the laundry. We were busy.

Today is drywall mudding and taping. Our Team Leader told us that they are going to start tiling the floor tomorrow. The vanity may go in on Wednesday which means the granite can be measured for cutting. We go to look at our granite remnant tomorrow. It is starting to look like a room in there again. I'm a bit nervous about the tile......just have to have faith. It seems like the guy doing it really enjoys it and is somewhat artistic.

I'm leaving for PT in a few minutes and then I have a dentist appointment later this afternoon. That during a major remodel in one day sounds like a bad day, doesn't it?!

Talk to you all later. Light and love!!!

ems..:hug::hug: take care of yourself..

vickie..I got a lot done too when I finally got going Sunday..PJ day is only fun for so long.. what are you doing for a baseboard if you have tile floor and drywall walls..I wanted a wood baseboard but my handyman is trying to talk me into a tile one?? I think he just wants what is easiest..


Maryann..:hug:

I had my gas logs installed today and I really like them.. It will be nice to have them at Christmas..

Nancy, won't tile be easier to keep clean? I like the look of wood too, but tile is so easy to clean, especially in a bathroom.

i have a wood baseboard in my bathroom, lol.

We walked this morning. I've been a good girl for the last 3 days. I dropped one of the 2 lbs I put on. Still need to lose 20 more. Why oh why is it so hard to lose these pounds?

I got an email that WW has new points plus for 2012. What does that mean? Anyone know? They just changed it last December. I think, with the economy, they are feeling the pinch. I know in KY they closed all the meetings except the one in the town I live in. Not the whole state, lol, just in the general area. I really don't care for the leaders there, so I don't bother. $13/weekly is a little pricey. I always bought the monthly pass for $39.

I'm getting ready to shut down and go to bed.

I think it would be hilarious if you girls had the same bathroom.

hey ladies i went to the doctors and im really annoyed i explained the situation that im run down and feeling dizzy andnot my self and that i done my bp and it was on the low side last night and the doctor just brused meoff she didnt check my bp or ears to see if i had low blood pressure or an ear infection. everything i said she dismissed i am so annoyed :( i told her i fainted last week aswell and she still ignored me i said well what am i gonna do about not feeling right and the drowsyness she said drink water what the **** is that gonna do :( i also said about the coldsores and she didnt give me anything for that either. I feel like complaining and wanting to see another doctor cus this one is a new one and i didnt not like her at all. sorry for rant but im really upset :( xxxx

Tejas
12-06-2011, 09:39 AM
Well, Ems, you have every right to be upset. Do what feels right to you. Either go back and confront her, or get a new doctor if you can. I suggest you go to the pharmacy/druggist and get something for the cold sores. There are good over-the-counter meds for that. They are pricey, but they work quickly.

Perhaps you should keep records of your BP, if you don't already, and take them in. Take your BP before you get out of bed in the morning..before you move around at all. Then take it again immediately when you get out of bed and see if there is a large difference.

I'm off to tap practice...yesterday I did a new set of exercises with the trainer...'bout killed me :lol: I lasted only 35 minutes!

12-06-2011, 01:15 PM
thanks rhonda i did use cold sore creame and it made it worse and swelled up :( thats why i went to see the doctor but she didnt care she said i couldnt have any meds for it as it was no good for me cus it has already come out. I should keep a record of bp thanks for the idea. HOPE YOU ENJOY TAP PRACTICE I USED TO LOVE DOING THAT XXX

Ems, I get cold sores on my lips and even if the medication is applied after the outbreak it limits the spread and eases the pain. Here it is called Lipactin.

Applying ice to the area also helps. Sometimes if you can catch it before the outbreak, just when you feel the itching, applying ice will even prevent the outbreak.

Hi Ladies:)

Had my appointment with my reg doctor this morning and found out the results from the MRI. I have a crack in my hip along with bursitis and arthritis on either side of my right hip.

He didn't tell me what the treatment will be,but I'm sure my orthopedic doctor will work on it next week. Looked up in web doctor and mayo clinic and they say a cortisone shot will relieve the pain as Aleve and over the counter arthritis meds don't help. Now for the crack in the hip I guess it has to heal by itself. My Mom cracked her pelvis there was no treatment for that except healing by itself.

Another thing he wasn't happy with me is my weight,he's going to check my A1C along with my cholesterol. Having a large tummy and skinny arms & legs I might be a diabetes suspect like my sister.


VICKIE-Thanks for the new pages,Had the results for the MRI read above. My doctor was upset with me and my weight.I gained more than I sure have,and my b/p was 158/78 which is high for me I'm always around 132/70. Why did TG come and now I have to worry about Christmas.I was doing so well at home,where they're no cakes,cookies or the junk around.

ThanksRHONDA I found your guys.

NANCY-Thanks for the hugs, & You'll will love the gas logs, as they really keep the house warm,and they will pay in the long run.


PAM-We're all in the same boat. I think with woman it our hormones that has something to do with it being its so hard to lose. I'm back on the CAD & low carbing again. I really did bad over the TG holiday. Must get back on track. I see WW ads all over the tv asking people to come back to them.I think people can't afford to go to meeting or go on line. In my town one of the meeting places closed.We have another one but it far from me,and Yet I can afford the either..

EMS-I agree with RHONDA you should be upset. The doctor should have checked what your were complaining about.


Have to go and get some of my Christmas Card written especially the ones going overseas.

Have a great day

Hi there, Chickies. I subbed 4th Grade Math yesterday. The students were wonderful but they literally sucked all the energy out of me. I was asleep by 6:30 last night and slept till almost 10 today. No more subbing till Thursday. We're meeting friends for bfast in the morning then she and I are going to a ladies' meeting while our guys go to the local archery shop.

Ems, I would have a talk with that doctor if I were you. And I'd have it soon. No reason to let you keep suffering.

Maryann, I hope your hip heals quickly. I would hate to hear what your doctor would say about my weight. I outweigh you quite a bit.

Vickie, a PJ day sounds good to me. In fact, I've had one today. Your remodeling is going to pay off big time. When are you expecting them to be finished?

Nancy, when is yours due to be finished?

Pam, congrats on being op. I haven't been lately. Maybe soon.

Ya'll have a good evening. I'll be back tomorrow.

Tejas
12-06-2011, 09:21 PM
Maryann, you bet it's carbs and hormones. It's tough, very tough. I've learned that I really can eat low carb, but when I add them back in, I really crave them. It's not worth eating most of them, I'm learning.

Wow, Sandra, that's a lot of sleep. Good for you!

I was supposed to go to a meeting tonight, but I'm home. I was out last night, have art tomorrow night, a meeting Thursday night, and a tap performance on Saturday night. ENOUGH already!!

Have a good night everyone.

pam920
12-06-2011, 10:37 PM
Rhonda, you make me tired, reading all you do. Slow down and smell the roses, lol. Just kidding, you amaze me with all you do.

Sandra, that was a long sleep. I guess you needed it. I slept till 9:30 this morning. I was always an early riser, but lately, been sleeping till 8:30 and sometimes 9:30.

Maryann, I hope the cortisone helps. How much did you gain while you were away? You had dropped into the 150's, right?

ems, that is terrible that the dr. just brushed you off. I get cold sores too, but haven't had one in years (knock on wood). I have a prescription tube of something I use as soon as I feel a tingle and it keeps me from getting one. I carry it in my purse. Sometimes stress will bring one on, or the sun. Ask for the prescription and keep it on hand for the next outbreak. I hate when dr.s won't listen to us.

The bathroom gals must have been busy today. I can't wait to see the end results.

My granddaughter is scheduled for next Tuesday for her MRI. Her dr. is more optimistic about it not being a tumor, but can't say for certain. He mentioned something about pseudo. She has to keep taking the water pills to keep the fluid pressure under control.

We had mexican tonight. There went my diet, lol. I lost the 2 pounds I recently gained, but this may have set me back, again. We'll see in the morning.

pam920
12-06-2011, 10:44 PM
I went and looked up what the dr said to my granddaughter. This is what he thinks it may be, and I'm praying he is right..........

What is pseudotumor cerebri?

Pseudotumor cerebri literally means "false brain tumor." It is likely due to high pressure within the skull caused by the buildup or poor absorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The disorder is most common in women between the ages of 20 and 50.

Thanks ladies im feeling abit better today i use the little tube called blistex and it made it worse so i have just left it now even though it hurts.

Sandra you to way to much hehe i wish i wa sliek you :D

maryann a cracked hip soundspainful i hope you get the treatment you need soon :D

rhonnda how was your tap dancing?

Pam i hope your granddaughter is ok the poor thing.

hope your well nancy and vickie.

whats happened with jojo? xxxx

Tejas
12-07-2011, 12:46 PM
Ems, Jojo said she'd be back after Christmas. Blistex won't control cold sores, in my experience. It's really good for chapped lips, but cold sores are from the herpes virus and need a different medical approach. Most of us who have cold sores have the herpes virus in our spinal fluid, normally from childhood chicken pox.

The tap performances were good, not perfect, but good. We have two more big ones this week, then we're off duty for the holidays.

Pam, know that we are all thinking of your granddaughter and you. I've been trying to sleep a little later too. But, tap is always at 8 or 8:30! I'm also going to add a day at the gym and that will likely be early morning--have to talk to trainer. My dog normally has me awake anyway. She is very strange these days, sometimes up 3-5AM, wanting food or out. She is well-fed, that's not the problem.

Pam, I do too much right now. But, there's nothing I want to quit, so I just have to be miss a few things now and again. I'm also working with two other local folks to write a brief paper on the health effects of hydrofracking that we're giving to city hall soon. This gas drilling is not without some serious problems.

I'm actually grounded today because the car is in the shop. That's OK, there's lots to do here.

Hi Ladies:)

What a down pour we had this morning,and my back & hip are really hurting me,asked the pharmacist what was the strongest over the counter pain killer I could take,as the arthritis and Aleve are not working. He suggested care one pain relief [extra strong]went out grocery and grab-bag shopping also for I have Mary's Telephone Co. Christmas party to go to tomorrow.Than on Friday have to sing my ex choir directors funeral mass and in the afternoon I'm going to meet my friend Rita for a late lunch.
Alice called me to meet some time this week and I had to decline for those two day but will be able to meet with her on Sat or next week.


SANDRA-Thanks, He's a good doctor and was always concerned about my weight as I was,but the TG gain was very unexpected.Never in my life a overwhelming weight gain like I had this TG happened. I'm now on a very low carb diet and i lost another pound to add to my total of 4 lbs.


RHONDA- I really have to work on those carbs especially around and in between the holidays and once we get into January and will remain on them until I get these TG off.


PAM-Thanks, looks like 20- lbs. Have no idea why?????????? Yes I was in the 159.5 when I left for TG and when I returned home I was 179. Asked the doctor if it was water weight as he did mention at I had water in my bursa of my hip,and I asked him how much he told me about 1 oz. So that no it.


EMA-Thanks I see my doctor next Thursday and hopefully the cortisone shot will take the pain away,and than the hip bone will heal itself.


Have to go and get my laundry done,have a great evening

Good Morning Chicks! Lordy, Christmas shopping, PT, construction.....it's enough to make a girl lose her mind. Sorry I wasn't here yesterday. It's been so busy here. Good news is that I've seen my floor and I LOVE it. The cabinets arrived and a gorgeous....just what I hoped. My mirrors are missing but the guys tell me it's not a problem. So far, they've done right by us so I'm trying not to worry. They are going to set the vanity in today on top of the ungrouted floor so that the granite guy can come in to do his measurements. That way, he can be make the vanity top while they finish the tile. Pretty slick professional crew I have here. Hope everything continues to go well since I'm sick to my stomach with nerves. We are spending a lot of money. Definitely couldn't have my niches so I'm disappointed in the shelves but I need something. I really don't like the hanging racks very much.

Jim and I weren't going to buy each other any presents this year but we changed our minds and set a low limit. We really love Christmas and decided that we deserve it with all we've gone through with this remodel. I found a couple of things he will love. Today is Christmas cards. Gotta get them out today or tomorrow. I've never done them this late before. Forget wrapping and the Christmas tree. Not sure when that will happen.

Good news is that the stress hasn't made me eat too badly yet. We hope to have date night tonight but the jury is out on that.

Sandra, my Mom LOVED cardinals and whenever I see one I think of her. I never liked them much and she always wanted to put stuffed ones on our Christmas tree. She'd put them on and I'd take them off. I never want anything on the tree that doesn't have sparkle on it. It got to be a fun game with us. So now cardinals always make me and my Sister smile and think of our Mom. I'm glad you did something nice for yourself. That's a good thing!

Mary Ann, I never heard of Care One pain relief. Did he say what it is? Have a great time at your part today.

Rhonda, I think it's wonderful that you are so busy and enjoying yourself. My Sister and BIL always say that they might as well go like crazy as long as they can.

Ems, I hope you get some relief soon. I hope I never have one of those. Is this your first one? Are you stressed? I get migraines when I'm stressed.

Nancy, your granddaughter keeps popping into my head and I'm praying for her and others to get gentle diagnoses. May we know her name? I like to mention people by name in my prayers. It makes me feel more connected.

I'll definitely share pictures of the bathroom when it's done though I may have to do it on FB instead of here. I can never figure out how to shrink the pictures enough to get them to take on here. My photos always have too many megapixels.

Gotta go work on that card list! Talk to you all soon.

I'm back. I just have 7 students right now and boy are they quiet! They're working on poetry books that are due next Wed. Next period I'll have 2 students. Am I spoiled today? I'm loving it!

Tomorrow night the high school where I taught is playing for the State Title in Texas High School Football for schools in what's called 3A. I think about everyone around is going but us. I'm going to listen to it on the school website. I just can't deal with the stress of being there---even though it will probably be good stress.

My eating is so so. I did turn down a luxury treat yesterday. Guess that's progress.

Hello chicks. Better late than never. I had a busy morning, taking care of med refills, bill pay, etc. We went to get some groceries, then I went shopping. Didn't go to the bigger city, but still had a good time. I'm going into Ocala (big city) tomorrow.

Vickie, did you mean MY granddaughter? I don't recall Nancy mentioning hers. Mine is Amber. Sounds like your bathroom is coming along rather quickly now. I'll get to see the pics on facebook. Just let us know here when you post them. I miss so much stuff on facebook.

Sandra, hope your team does well. What treat did you turn down? How come so few students?

Maryann, hope you got some pain relief. Arthritis is like a bad toothache when mine acts up.

ps...on a happy note, my daughter completed her apprenticeship and took her state test and is now a Master Stylist. I wish she was closer, my hair needs trimmed, lol.

Thank you, Vickie.

We just got home from the Junior High/High School Christmas Band/Choir Concert. Our granddaughter, Kennedy,, was recognized for earning all-district band a few weeks ago. We're really proud of her--and we're pumped for the holidays now with all that good Christmas music. Our younger granddaughter, Alexa, isn't having a Christmas program since they are in the process of moving into a brand new elementary building. Looks like she'll have a Valentine's Day program. Life is good.

Hey chicks! How are you all doing? I am finally slowing down a bit and needing to get back on the wagon. I will be adding a substantial load to it (the wagon) since I have gained lots of weight. I have missed y'all!

Nancy-looks like we are both back where we started. I have gained back up to 145! Since I know myself and my holiday eating, I plan on trying not to gain another pound through the holiday. Maybe we can start a new challenge in January :D

Since I have to be up in a couple of hours I'd better try and go back to sleep. Nighty night!

Hey, Sloanie, welcome back and good luck. We've missed you. :grouphug:

Ems, I don't know about the patches. But, I too have had cold sores all my life, especially when I was younger. I've had shingles twice!

We went out for lunch and I had an old-fashioned hamburger..that will be my meal for the day. :yes:

Tomorrow, I'm doing two tap performances with the troupe. The first one is at the Senior Center open house. That is where we take lessons. I'm dancing with a class, and then with the Syncopated Ladies (our performing group.) The evening performance is in Dallas at what is called Polyphonics Spree. It will be late and I hear the smoke in the air will remind me of 1960's concerts ;)

DH and I just bought a fancy new video camera that allows up to upload to FB, YouTube, etc. So, if he learns how to work it by tomorrow, I'll upload videos of our performances.

Vickie, good luck with your crisis. Nancy, I just bet that doggie is sleepy :lol:

Hi Ladies:)


Sorry I was MIA yesterday as I had a to go to church for mass & than to Christmas luncheon,and than to a wake.Now this morning I have a funeral to go to and than out to lunch with Rita.

Had a lot of things to do,and with my hip I'm as slow as a snail. Got a gift for the Church's Christmas Giving Tree and brought my plastic bags back to the store to be recycled,and now this afternoon I'm going to decorate my living-room. No out side or window lights as I'm afraid I will fall,and not being here for Christmas it silly to decorate.If I had company it would be a different story.

VICKIE-I think the Care One is Stop & Shops own brand,the pharmacist that I go to recommended me to use it as it ts the same as the Tylonal extra strength but only cheaper. Right none of them are working. I think I need something stronger.

PAM-Its a busy time of the year,I haven't been on the board that much either. Arthritis is bad up here everyone I know has it as it gets so damp my fingers are now are hard to open and close. Hope the cortisone will hope on my hip so I won't have to suffer going down to my DD on :tree: Christmas.

EMS-I will let you know,my reg doc told me hat the MRI told him but I still want my orthopedic doctor to tell me whats treatment hes going to use on me, other than the cortisone.


SLOANE-Happy to see you posting again miss the old guys,Wondered what ever happened to CoCo,she left a long time ago ,but I like her post.

The morning tapping went OK. I didn't make any huge bloopers, but one of the tappers did. She's also a very "proud" person so I'm sure she's suffering. DH was able to record most of the performance, but I've got to learn to edit and how to share.

Bye, more tapping tonight :wave: And, then, we're finished for the season!!

I went by my mom's and re-dressed her leg. The bite did break the skin, but it is more like scrapes than punctures. Today the wounds look good. No redness at all. I'm glad we started the antibiotics yesterday. Interesting tidbit, Rhonda. Thanks for askin' about her, y'all.

Here's where we danced tonight. It was just amazing...raucous young crowd who love the "dancing grannies"! (Syncopated Ladies)

morning chicks.

Rhonda, wish they had a video so we could see you in action. I love watching stuff like that.

Maryann, hope they can fix you up for your trip.

nothing new to report at this end.

hi Sloanie, good to see you back.

Sandra, subway sounds good. We've been trying to walk everyday. It really helps my husband glucose level. Amazing what a little exercise can do for that. Of course it's not helped me one bit. Still dragging that excess weight around. I will be happy when he can speed it up a bit. If I was by myself, I would walk much faster.
