Sam Update.

Sam is preparing to enter the sixth grade. Whoa! When did this happen? LOL She starts on Friday for Orientation. She doesn't seem nervous about starting her first year of Junior High. So that's good, because I of course am doing the worrying for both of us. LOL

We went to Sedona, Arizona for a week about three weeks ago and Rod took this picture of me and Sam. The red rock mountains there are gorgeous. It's one of the most beautiful places in the world. Doesn't Sam look thrilled? Hahahahaha.


My tests are all back.

I just saw my doctor 6 days ago and everything looked wonderful for my heart. Come to find out this test that came back so odd, is from my fibromyalgia. It's getting worse all the time. But I refuse to be on any pain meds or muscle relaxers. Too habit forming. Been there, done that, have the tee shirt. So this heart doctors idea is this. Start out with five minutes on the exercise bike and each day add one more minute. Keep a journal of the time, the date, the milage and the tension you're using. Then in eight weeks, he'll look over the journal and tell me if I'm doing better or not. So today was day 7. I'm now at two miles in 11 minutes, which doesn't sound that good to anyone that's normal, but to me who has been having a hard time doing five minutes on the bike, it's great news. Tomorrow will be day 12. Every day it's something to look forward to. It's going to take a while to get my endurance up, but I'm trying my hardest. My goal is to not be as tired while walking with Rodney and Sam. I have to stay behind a lot because I can't keep up. I used to be the one that was far ahead of everyone. I'm thinking at the end of the eight weeks, I might have some stamina. This would be so good. I would love it. I'm tired of being tired after cleaning the bathroom and not being able to do anything else. KNow what I mean? Sam has just started doing her own laundry, so that was a nice change for me. Less work, more time to do other things that need to be done. Everyone kept telling me that 12 was old enough, so I finally listened. This is her first week. So far, so good. *grin* I'm sorry I've been so out of commission. I have missed everyone terribly. Just checking in and letting you all know that I'm still alive. And thankfully those heart tests all came out well. It's because I studied so hard for them. :) Have a good Wednesday.

Hugs, Patt

Hi all.

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. Although, sometimes I feel like I have. I'm going through some medical problems right now and trying to get my health back in order. I'm trying to be patient as I wait for all the doctors appointments. And don't even get me started on the price of the co-pays and deductibles. I will try and catch up as I can. Know that you're all in my thoughts at all times. Be well, all of you. Wishing you a happy June.

Hugs, Patt

Happy Belated Birthday, Jane Davitt

Stupid LJ forgot to send me the reminder and I don't remember on my own. Have a great second birthday.

HUgs and best wishes.


For my Iron Man collection.

A friend of mine made this for a small jewelry box for me. It's for my office with my other Iron Man things and he knows I have two Iron Man necklaces which could go in this nicely. :) He made it. He's so artistic and I'm glad I know him. He shares well with others. :)

Good news about Alexa.

Alexa is my oldest grand-daughter. She'll be 26 next month. (Which is in two days) She came over to see us tonight and she and boyfriend had some news. She's pregnant. Not real far along yet, just seven weeks. And I don't wish to jinx it, so I'm saying very little about this until she's at least 14 weeks along. We're very excited. I shall share more news later. :)

Hugs, Patt
The Easter Charity is all said and done. It was wonderful. Each of the 19 boxes had real plates, silverware, cups, glasses, hot pads, kitchen towels, water enhancers, Easter goodies and many more items for when they move into their own apartment. It turned out so nicely. They were all so happy and so were we. There is nothing like giving your time and energy to someone that is in need. I just wanted to let you know that it went well and already planning for a new way for donations for Christmas. :) Thank you everyone for putting up with my posts and for being here for me.

Hugs, Patt

Happy Birthday, Snycock.

Happy Birthday, Jen. May you have a wonderful day filled with sunshine, happiness and lots of cake. Best wishes and tons of hugs.
