That's great news Barbara!


I'm still feeling kinda woozy today, not quite as bad as yesterday though(yet). I did figure out that I'm OK for about 30 minutes after I eat something. My mom was diagnosed with vertigo when I was in Junior High & she went through a whole bunch of questions with me last night. She thinks that's what it is too. I've had problems with my blood pressure in the past so it could be that also. I'm going to call the doctor today & se when I can get in to see him. Thanks everyone!

Crewsk, glad you are going to the doctor. Vertigo isn't something to take lightly. Dh had a terrible bout of it many years ago and still has some off and on, but never like the first time. He had gone to a deacon's retreat and had to be brought home in the back of a station wagon with pillows all over and under him. The good thing is they treat it better these days. With dh, stress makes it worse, so make sure you are taking care of yourself.

Barbara, I'm so glad to hear that the school was willing to work with you! Enjoy your "freebie" week!

Crewsk, take care of yourself. I'm worried about you!

My treadmill dies last night!!
I've been walking 1 mile for 4 days and 2 miles Fri.-Sun. I take one night off.
I've lost 4 lbs and now I'll end up going backwards again

Don't think hubby will buy me a new one. I got this one at a garage sale for $100. I would love to get an elliptical.
I don't walk in the neighborhood, cause, there is not a leash law plus, dogs get dumped around here all the time and I'm too scared of getting attacked.
AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!

Texasgirl,

How about the high school or middle school track? I know a lot of people who walk there. The woman who played Harriet Oleson on Little House on the Prairie used to walk the track of the junior high school in Vista, CA, where I used to live. If nothing else, just make sure there's nothing in the way and walk all over your house at a brisk pace! Not a lot of room in my house for that, but from the front of my house to the back, done a lot of times would add up. Hopefully you can get an elliptical. Just keep hinting to Santa!

Barbara

I don't want to have to drive up to the school I hate driving anywhere unless I have too. I'm just going to pout and see if hubby will get it for me.
but, if not, I will walk all around my house.

Texasgirl--Are there any good looking guys in the neighborhood? Just tell your husband that without a treadmill to take up all your time and energy, you have nothing to do now but watch the goings on in the neighborhood. LOL (J/K!).

ok.. I've venting. LOUDLY.!!!

I just posted under "what was the last thing that made you smile"
My happy news that I GET TO HAVE CHRISTMAS AT HOME THIS YEAR".

Christmas has been hard for as long as I can remember. Mom and dad divorced when I was 8. Mom and I moved up here while everyone else stayed in Oregon. Every year we had to go down for both holidays and it was always a huge fight between mom and dad about when they'd each get me. It'd start a month a head of time and continue until Jan. Fight after fight... All I ever wanted was to wake up in my own bed on Christmas morning. This year I get too!!!

Years pass... I meet Paul and we pretty much do Christmas and Thanksgiving at his parents place in Salem. Mom was always invited. She came once or twice. We'd have Christmas and Thanksgiving with mom a few days before or a few days after. She hated this because it only counts as "spending the holiday with her" if we are there on the actual date. So, about four years ago we started trading off. Christmas with Paul's family and Thanksgiving with her. The next year Christmas ON CHRISTMAS day with mom and Thanksgiving with Paul's family. Paul's folks are very understanding about this and have no problems at all. We miss out on so much though. Christmas eve is one of the most special nights in the family. Everyone is there 25-30 of us sometimes more. Good food, good friends, good times. Mom just doesn't understand. She's invited but refuses to come. So, every other year we miss the party.

This Christmas was supposed to be spent at Mom's house. She just moved in with Grandpa though and there's no room for us at his house, David can't take time off work to drive all the way down there and grandpa has a very very bad drinking problem... SO, a few days ago I invited mom up here for Christmas. She said YES. She sounded fine with it, happy even because she didn't want to spend christmas at her dad's either... She called awhile ago and informed me that "next year will be her turn and she expects us to go to her house" After all she's missing having her Christmas turn!!!!!!!
There's no way we can rotate the holidays at this point. There are too many other family members and people involved. I'm so mad at her.

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal... I did a bad job explaining how painful the holidays have always been. I just want everyone ( including ME) to be happy and I don't think that it's ever going to happen.

Thanks for listening.
