Just got back from the emergency room......I never got to the mall. We hit a dip in the road and I went flying up in the air and landed on my bottom....still attached to the chair with my straps though. The pain was unreal and at first they thought it was a compression fracture but then realized it was an old one I never even knew I had They also found osteosporosis. I thought you could only have one "disorder" at a time and told them so!
So several pain shots and off to x-ray again! Then they finally let me go home. In case I disapperar you will know that I can't sit up for awhile. The demerol is wearing off and my script isn't here yet. Take care of yourselves in the meantime and I shall return.....this too shall pass.
There is a part of me that can't even believed that this happpened and POOR Willy feels terrible!!! I had to force him to leave me at the hospital and go back to work! They made him fill out incident reports and everything. The poor ******* was a nervous wreck! OK Best get into bed like they told me....Love, Mel

OMG Mel! You gave me chills reading your post. I'm so sorry. BIG HUG. Rest and get better, don't do anything that doesn't feel right. Give yourself time to recover. I feel so awful for you, what a scarey time this must have been. I'm glad someone was by to help you to the hospital and have you seen to.

Mel, Mel, Mel... why can't people just kick into the furniture around here? We seem to have some pretty scary injuries around this place. I'm so sorry to hear of your accident Mel, sending you some healing thoughts and I hope you can be resting comfortably. And all this just when you got the journals singing again...

Holly, Lillies! there were the most beautiful lillies at the store - I so wanted them but couldn't decide where to put them. Tonight DH and I went for a short walk before dinner. We trudged up a hill / cove/ circular drive and the house at the top of the crest had the most beautiful pink calla lillies around their mailbox. I wished we had the camera with us.

We have ourselves a nice little rose garden of about 8 bushes. The new bushes we planted are doing nicely. One older bush is infested with I suppose aphids - looks like the white exoskelton ?? of some little buggy creature. From away it almost looks like dust but close up, nope, it's bugs. And I think one bush has black spot. I don't think the former owners did much on the feed or preventive maintenance. We have one red rose that bloomed a big bud but never really opened properly. I told DH that perhaps with some care and feeding they will perk up again. The tree blooms are fading and the last of the lot about to bloom is the magnolia trees. Judging from the size of the buds that's going to be rather impressive. Then I hope we are done with pollen, sneezing, stuffy noses and bees and hornets

Linus, I hope that you finally got a bit of peace and quiet for yourself and little bump. Meadow - if you're wondering "where the squirrels is" I can tell you that they aren't here - we used to feed them in Chicago - actually they feed themselves even if you don't want them. But DH has been running them off the property here. They get into the house and can do extensive damage.

Shad, you have asked the infernal eternal question as to why the weekends are so productive and fly by. I often wonder if weekends were 5 days long would we enjoy them more or would we long to extend our 2 day work week into a longer time? I'll be the first to volunteer for that experiment And no, for some reason we didn't have pizza when you visited. I guess I'd have to say that everyone makes pizza in their own way. And when you move to another part of the country or world, the pizza just doesn't taste the same and you crave what "felt like homestyle". The pizza sauce isn't the same here, nor are the meats. I will be bringing an odd assortment of things back with me this weekend - 6 jars of broiled steak seasoning and spices I can't get here, some nice chocolate squares -- lest you say now Happy you should know better , they are for the chocoholics at the office, some cleaning wipes for my hard to clean eyeglasses and probably a few pieces of frozen pizza. I can't wait until security x-rays my carry on bag. Well at least I left my lighters at home - no more lighters allowed in your luggage as of this past Thursday - carry on or stowed luggage. Good thing I don't smoke anymore or I'd be panicking. I daresay the airports will do a brisk business selling disposable lighters now. And speaking of Wednesday will mark 1 year that I have quit smoking. Over 11,000 cigarettes not smoked in that year (that boggles my mind) and I have saved over $2,500 and supposedly gained back 2 months and 25 days of good living. And the sad thing is even given that, I still want to smoke. Not a day goes by that I don't think about it. But even in this semi-tobbacco friendly state, they are still forging the effort to stamp out smoking and you do see it less and less. Thank God we aren't in the pool hall anymore. That was the worst temptation. Anyway, it's well past my bedtime so goodnight to Tig and Teel and Rose and all the other fine chicks on the thread. Rest up those poor hurting bodies of yours - I won't even tell you what I felt like on Sunday after an entire day of gardening.

Be our guest Ms Extraordinary newiesara. Think I might just call you Sara. Welcome to you. I'm sure you will sort us all out shortly. We're generally a chatty bunch, but just now everyone is a bit shy. Well not Mel or Happy or Meadow or obviously me. Anyway, I'm just checking in to say hello, not much to report, too much work and not enough time, grusome gym session on the treadmill this morning. Looking forward to my rest day off tomorrow. I seem to manage to really wear myself out in the 30 minute sessions. Looking forward to weighin and measuring at the end of the month. I sincerely hope for Jason's sake something moves. Bl**dy torturer.

Mel, what can I say. I hope you can move tomorrow. And I hope there is no permanent damage or even lingering damage. Get better soon buddy.

Happy, your birthday card is going to be late - but then it will give you something to look forward to won't it? I'll get around to answering the emails and pictures soon, maybe over the weekend. I tend to not do much after work at the moment. I'll have to stop that and just work through the exhaustion. Mind you once I get into working with the new system - if I ever do - then I will relax somewhat.

Okay, off to bake a spud and eat with my previously roast spiced pumpkin and some roasted herby onions. I'm being a veggie tonight. See ya

Sara~ are you a Newfie in BC?? Very bi coastal of you!!!! I am plunked in the middle in Ontario. Welcome!!!!! Love your pic!!
Back later for personals.

No "Plans"!
Huh???
There is lots to do but no deadlines or commitments! I have 3 little guys today, all of whom nap.
Possibilities: Pay a bill, book campsites for Dhís family reunion in July, buy hooks for shelving unit, clear off diningroom table,sweep/wash floor, sit on my *** watching mindless tv, read a brilliant novel, take a shower, get dressed.........
Apparently I will change a poopy diaper first.
Tomorrow night i am presenting my parent handbook to the Home and School Association. DD has dance photos at 5pm first.
I had a small( less than 1/2 cup) bowl of ice cream before bed last night.

Nothing too fantastic to say today. I slept 8 hours, exciting.
It is going up to 26C today. Very summerish for April. we need rain. It has been in the forcast but has not appeared.

Off to face the diapers.

Shad-
G'ahead and call me Sara. Or Sar. Or Sars. bwahaha.
So I guess I'll jump right in.



Last night I walked 26 blocks.. and when I got home, I found out that I had walked 3 km, or 1.8 miles! yay for me!!!

((((MEL)))):


Hey Sara, welcome to our little world of mishaps and goal setting! We rally and keep continuing to muster the courage to face each new day with renewed energy. I personally am just in an whirlpool, struggling for some purchase to pull myself up out of the body that I have eaten myself up to unfortunately my fat won't let me go I wrestle with it every day and I don't burn a single calorie, I think it is a conspiracy of some sort

Happy- the garden sounds so fabulous. You need to pull off those black spotted leaves from your roses or it will spread to the other rose plants. Aphids usually look like spit on flowers with little green bugs inside, if it is really powdery stuff, it maybe powdery mildew which you will need to us copper spray to get rid of. Take an infected couple of leaves in a plastic bag to the garden center and they will give you the right stuff. Funny how different sections of the country have there favorite flavours. I remember being in Dallas once and having a pizza with jalapeno peppers on it, hoo! I couldn't get the water down me fast enough, that was spicey!! They even put hotsauce on their eggs in the morning! Take a seperate suitcase for all your cache of goodies, that way it can go straight into the kitchen when you get home Hmm, pink calla lilies, do they smell? I love the shape of calla lilies, actually my mom used to make a desert which was called "Calla Lilies" it was a soft cookie which you pinched at the bottom while they were still hot and after they cooled you filled them with whipped cream : whoah! flashback

Shad-so Jason has you running on a treadmill? your poor knees, I hope you are doing your stretches so you don't suffer too terribly. Remember to drink your water. So work is really awful? or just really taking up alot of time? I hope you are feeling useful there and getting them organized Fingers crossed that it all comes together and you are smiling within it all soon

Holly-put on your gloves and hospital mask before attempting diaper removal duty Imagine you with free time on your hands? My suggestion is the novel, I have the new Sue Grafton which I am just itching to dive into, but after I finish my Oprah mag... isn't Oprah something? Her magazine is always chocked full of inspiring, thoughtful stories about people pushing forward through all sorts of trials and angst. I don't feel so bad about my little life when I read how others are living, some folks have had it rough.

Linus-how many people are touching your middle section while they ask their baby questions? Are you feeling that out of body, something is taking over feeling yet? Cool that you had the lounge pretty much to yourself, a little home away from home. I'm glad you were feeling well enough to get out. It is Spring and you should be inhaling deep of all that grand fresh air!

Teel-I'm sorry your time away had a cloud over it with your buddy getting miffed when she couldn't reach you. I bet you "did" give her a scare, she must really care a whole lot. Give her a hug next time you see her and tell her you are sorry she worried. Take the high road. Sometimes a little communication and listening does the trick and smoothes the biggest riffs over. I'm glad you are back too Hope you are enjoying your day

I have nothing much to say about my weight issue today. I haven't been exercising, eating is soso. My mind set is positive in a resigned, could happen sort of way. I know, I know... I'm working on it.

Just popping in to see if dear MEL has posted anything in here since she horrified everyone with her Journal post. Lots of good thoughts, prayers, vibes, and crossed boobs are wending their way to Joisey.

Meadow, does Melanie know about you? Great pics! Good advice about clipping a few rose leaves for examination. I think I will do just that, thanks for the suggestion.

Welcome Newfie Sara You do realize that now that you've spoken up, we expect you to keep talking I always like to see a new face around here - relieves the pressure for me to keep talking all the time.

Mel, I hope you are feeling better today but I sort of think you are feeling the brunt of the fall today. Rest up and I hope some of the people you always look after are looking after you these next few days...

Linus, I tried to retrace my steps to find the house with the beautiful calla lillies and we wound up walking all over the hills and vallies of this area but no lillies. I'm sure DH will remember the exact spot. It's supposed to rain the next 3 days - next chance we get we will be snapping a picture for you. And I'm glad little bump has passed all the healthy tests. Whew, what a relief for you I'm sure...

We did a 25 minute walk yesterday and today DH took me to all sorts of new streets that all seemed to end in a dead end not once but several times so we did alot of back tracking. Got almost an hour's walk in. Then I had to water the front flower beds I'd spent so much time, money and hard labour putting in. We don't have a water hose in the front so I made several, many - well actually lots and lots and lots of trips with the watering can. They are talking rain here but I just know if I rely on that, it will rain across the street and not on my house. I didn't get done until almost 8pm which is way too late to have dinner. Warmed up some chicken and grilled veggies to nibble on. So I'm doing good this week on the eco challenge for exercise and water and so so on the food. I am really fighting the temptation to nibble on something late at night - around 11 when I should be heading to bed instead of thinking about food. This is night number 2 where the only thing I've allowed in my mouth is big gulps of cool water.

Guess that's enough for me for the night. Have a great tomorrow all...

Hiya,
feeling too tired to do much tonight, so I'll write this missive and go sit on the couch and watch some tv. If I go to bed now, I will be awake around 2.30am and that is a useless way to go.

Mel, I hope you are resting up and feeling better than you were, although I would pick that you have a very sore toosh. You poor old thing.

Happy, good stuff on the walking the neighbourhood. Sounds like a good way to get to know folk around the place.

Linus how good to hear that 'bump' is developing as she should. I'm having lunch with a friend next week whose baby is due in July and it is called jelly belly!!! I ask you.

Sara, glad you came back for a second helping - hope you manage to find your way back again.

I see we have even had a visit from Ruthxxx of the crossed boobs fame. Hiya Ruthie.

Food this week has been a bit weird. I've been feeling so tired that I haven't really bothered with structured meals. Some I've even left out altogether. I probably haven't drunk enough water either. Hope I get used to this job soon. Then things will start to settle down. I think I am doing okay, but there is so much to figure out and so few people to help me out. I have to sort a lot of it out more or less by myself and since much of it is legal, it is a bit hair raising. Still, I've sorted the portal (which is only a web page with a link back to a program). I personally find it a bit frustrating but can understand that it cuts costs and the purchase of further licensing etc.etc. Many companies are doing the same thing.

Anyway, my cuppa is ready and I'm off to sit in front of the tv and blink occasionally. It's tonights exercise.
