It wasn’t long after I woke up my PA showed up and it was off to the shower to get freshened up.  After that it was therapy time, Since the weather is not only affecting my allergies/asthma but my pain as well.  It was a slow moving day.  My youngest son stopped in to check in on me and we had a nice visit.  I did brave the cool temps and took Roo & Lexi outside on front porch and gave them a good brushing as I was getting tired of the hair everywhere!  They are both losing their winter fur, while I was at it, I took them for a short walk in front of neighbors to pee and back inside we came.  My evening was spent in bed trying to re-coup as it wasn’t long exhaustion set in.  I am slowly getting more energy, but it just doesn’t take much to sap all my energy.

So from my home to yours ….

Goodbye April!

It’s hard to believe April is gone!  Seems like it just got here?  It’s another rainy, dreary but warm day.  Temps reached almost 70 today!

Spent the morning enjoying playing with the kitties and enjoying grand daughter time with my beautiful Princess.

Later in the afternoon there was finally a break in the rain and I was needing to escape outside, so I took my wheels and went for a ride on the side walk around the house.  My flowers seem to be enjoying the rain!  But it can stop anytime now!

Spent my evening curled up in bed, doing what I do best and that is resting.  It just doesn’t take much to exhaust me these days.  So from my home to yours …

Chilly, Dreary, Thursday

Slept in this morning as the back is screaming and it’s a chilly, dreary, rainy Spring day.  Spring is looking to be a wet & chilly one this year.  It seems trying predict mother nature is impossible. It was so cool in the house and I have turned the wall gas stove off as I was hoping the warmth was here to say, but nope I was wrong! Instead had to turn on the furnace to take the chill off!  Enjoying my morning coffee, trying to get myself woke up and motivated for the day before my PA arrives.  I thought this clipart fit for the day. I’m dreaming of follows and ladybugs.

Life doesn’t always go as we plan and there are bumps, curves, & road blocks but it’s how we deal with them that truly matters. For me I find when my day isn’t going so good it’s best to ….

My PA arrived around 1 PM and It felt good to get my shower, head washed, teeth brushed.  Clean bed sheets and then it was time for the dreaded therapy!  Although no pain, no gain!  The best part afterwards is the massage!  I could lay and get one of those all day long!  Plus the pain cream that is made has really helped with the muscle spasms and soreness.  Slowly but surely I know all the hard work will pay off.  After my workout, it wasn’t long and I was off to dream world.  It doesn’t take much to exhaust me. 

My evening was spent curled up bed since it was too cold for me to do anything else.  From my home to yours ….

Blah Monday!

Today was one of those very rough days, it took everything I had to just get my shower in.  I didn’t even have the strength to do my therapy.

I got part of my coffee down and got my shower and back to bed for the entire day.  Yesterday shopping adventure wiped me out!

Even though I have my bad days,  I get through them and have learned to be thankful that God has blessed me with another day here on earth.  I know that there are times I do not understand why I struggle with health issues, I know that he does and there is always a plan.  I leave my life and path in his hands and know that his direction is the best path in life. 

From my home to yours …

Cold Friday!

BRRR it’s nippy, chilly outside today.  My routine is waking up, getting my coffee down so I can get woke up before my PA arrives. 

Image may contain: text

I used to never even like coffee, loved the smell but not the taste and after going through treatment, I acquired a taste for coffee.  I limit myself on how many cups I drink a day.  Since I have to use all natural foods as much as possible.  The goal is to stay away from processed foods.  I use pure organic maple syrup and protein powder in it, as I just can’t drink it black.  Until I get at least 1-2 cups of coffee down, I'm like a bear and it takes me time to get adjusted from waking up.

I’m very slow moving anymore, my brain struggles in sending signals to my body parts.  When I first wake up my eyes are so blurred that trying to focus is almost impossible even with glasses on.  I used to get on Facebook, and read it while enjoying my coffee, or I'd do my bible study but now I just enjoy the quietness.  I don’t even try watching TV as my eyes just don’t focus and I end up with a headache

My PA was here and we got my needs taken care of, my home is smelling nice and clean and the afternoon was spent in bed sleeping as I'm always exhausted afterwards.  My night was spent curled up in bed, recovering from the day’s activities.  It was too cold to enjoy any outside fresh air today.

Beautiful Thursday

I slept in this morning, finally around 11 ish I got up and got my coffee in me before my PA arrived.  I’ve finally accepted that there are just things I can no longer do and having a Personal Assistant is a blessing.

I’m trying to get myself into a normal routine as this past winter I've spent more hours than not in bed due to health issues and the cold weather and I just don’t go together .  I try to remind myself of this daily and that even though I’m learning new ways, with God’s grace and strength.

Today was shower day and then I got to take my ride while the dogs walked, then it was physical therapy time (which I don’t like because it hurts afterwards and exhaust me) but the massage is the best part.  After my PA left, she got me tucked into bed and it wasn’t long and I was fast asleep.  I was completely drained.

Hope you all had a great day and from my home to yours ^^^^

Beautiful Day

Woke up to warm temps & Sunshine.  Had my morning coffee, which gets me motivated and the energy to get going

My PA arrived around 11.30 and assisted me with personal needs and then we went outside for fresh air & sunshine.  My Vit D is low even though I'm taking Vit supplements so on nice days I'm to get outside for a bit

Time goes by fast when I'm outside as I truly love being outside.  Then it was back inside to do my physical therapy (which I am not fond of but I know it’s a must to keep my muscles functioning) Best part is after it’s over I get a good massage!  It takes me time and we have to go slow as I get wore out very easily.

PA got me my afternoon cup of coffee, fixed my dinner and it was time for her leave and it was time for a much need nap for me!  I woke up around 8 PM!  I must of been more exhausted than I realized. Took my bedtime meds, ate my snack. Once again it’s time to say …
