UPDATES

Friday, January 16th, 2009

First off ….the foot…¬†¬† I am pretty much done with the Dr…¬† will never quite walk properly again…¬† may have trouble getting shoes on…. as my foot wont fit in them with the pads (orthotics) I have to wear…. actually wont fit without them either…. still swollen…..still no feeling in toes …. but hurts… I know that doesnt make sense but I understand this to be normal….¬† However …. I am happy I had the surgery done… its just taking a lot longer than I thought for it to heal…¬†

Had been having back pain and trouble walking since the accident ….¬† thought that once the foot was fixed it would correct itself …. not so …. foot Dr ordered an MRI…seems I have a few dics out….¬† seeing a specialist soon….¬† will know more once I do…. on that note….

I had planned on this post being about some of the pretties I have of my mothers…. however I seem to have caught the bug that is going around…. so will be away for a bit…since I am under the weather…..¬† will have photos of the goodies when I come back…

Speaking of weather…..temps here are in the teens and below…¬† BABY ITS COLD OUTSIDE!!¬†

SWEET PICKLES

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

The Holidays are over…. we are facing a new year…¬† new challenges…. a new beginning….

I am excited about this ….¬†I have a good feeling about it…. while¬†I know¬†life is full of surprises¬†…. life really does….. just happen….¬†¬†sometimes it does ……..just get in the way…… I will however try¬†my best to take whatever gets in the way and make the best of it…. one can only try right?¬†¬† …

In honor of a dear friend…¬†Sandi Mc Bride……¬†who does not make resolutions … rather promises….¬† I have decided to do the same….¬†I LOVE this idea… a lot!!¬†

Resolutions …. they don’t always work do they?¬† They seem to get broken before¬†they even get¬†started…¬†

A promise… however…. should never be broken… one must never make a promise ….then break it…. tsk tsk…… I like to think I have never broken a promise….¬† while I may be a procrastinator… (actually the definition of the word is …”JO”¬† ……yep¬†…. go take a look at the dictionary … it’s in there…. I¬†’ll even do that pinky thing for you… does that count?¬†)…..¬†anyhow…¬†I like to think I don’t make promises I can’t keep …. so … if you get my drift….. shame on me for breaking ANY promises I make to myself…

Below a few¬†promises¬†to me¬†from me and one or two for you …¬†

Though I have a foot that doesnt always cooperate with me…¬† I am planning on changing my lifestyle to a healthier one…. eating better…. moderate exercise… things I can do for not only my physical side…¬† but spiritually …. mentally….¬† when you take care of the whole package it all falls into place doesnt it?¬† I am not good at that… making it all work together …. so that is my first PROMISE….

Next …. I plan on getting myself out of a not so great situation….¬† I won’t elaborate ….only say that its going to take a lot of work …. may even take longer than a year…. but its baby steps in a RIGHT direction….

Also …. one hour a day…. thats all one hour a day devoted to creating… (thats hard cause once I get into it … I sometimes can’t stop) ….. even IF life DOES get in the way….¬†

One hour devoted to getting my house in order…

One hour a day to take care of the household business….

One hour a day to paying bills …. phone calls …

I am not sure why it all seems so hard….¬† I mean thats only four hours….¬† five if you count the exercising…. (once the foot cooperates that is)¬† right?¬† …. why have these daunting tasks¬†always seemed SO impossible ?¬†¬† I mean …..that leaves at least two hours for the things that get in the way…¬†¬† ok …. not so realistic is it?¬†¬† But I can devote at least one hour to creating and one to getting the house in order……¬† the rest shall happen as it should…

Patience …. understanding…. virtues that I have been unable to conquer …¬† especially the first one ….

Last…. I hope to bring a gentler ….. kinder me to the fore front….¬† I can sometimes be a pickle… yes … a pickle … sour¬†¬†…. sour¬†and salty¬†….¬† ok…. I am going to become a SWEET pickle !!¬† How does that sound?¬†¬† A smaller sweet pickle at that ….¬†

Definition of a sweet pickle….

pickle cured in brine and preserved in sugar and vinegar

Ok then…. I¬†CAN……. be sour… salty …. sweet ……all at the same time¬† ……

This I know for sure….¬†

I raise my glass¬†….. to resolutions to be broken …. promises that can’t¬†¬†……¬†dear blog friends that I have had the wonderful pleasure of getting to know…¬†¬† this past year…¬† hopefully new¬†friendships to be made¬†….this new year … And ….

The biggest jar of sweet pickles ever!!
