Good Morning my Lovelies. 

Looks like it's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiney day!  AND though I woke a few times during the night, I slept well again.  Hooray!    We did go to the Bonefish for dinner last night.  Mike had a Kobe beef burger (huge) and brought half of it home for tonight's dinner and I had a Florida Cobb salad, also huge, and did the same.  No cooking tonight! 

Yay ~ you have a nice clean house too, though it got that way through your own labors.    Yes, I got my feet into my shoes without the shoehorn again today.  Lovely!

I hope they can understand what is happening with your CPAP.  They must just average the use overall rather than really being able to see how much you use each night when you do use it.  Surely you aren't the only one who doesn't use it every nigh for many reasons.

I know we got Acorn when we bought the Roku, but then I think you have to pay $50 a year for it.  Seems like we've had Roku a long time and I don't remember renewing our membership, so I'm honestly not sure.  I hope you can see it and check it out to see if you might not enjoy it.  I think you would.  Not sure if your mom would or not.

Oooh, another lovely present.  Than you!


Hope you had a good nights sleep.

Your meal at The Bonefish sounds very good.  I will 

take some of both, lol.  We had Jimmy Johns tonight.

I got the turkey, bacon sub and added provolone to it.

I did have them take out bread.  You can have then 

leave it in or they carve some of the top of the bread 

out to accommodate the filling.  That was my way of

lessening the carbs...mom had the lettuce wrap...she is

a better person than I.

I got up today not feeling well.  My nose was plugged

and I had to remove the mask because I could not 

breath. I was so dry I could hardly pry my tongue off

the sides of my mouth.  When I blew to try and clear

the nose everything was pink tinged and a few bits of

blood and my throat hurt.  The throat no longer hurts

and no more blood, but I cannot stop sneezing and

blowing and if I do not blow often then it just runs.

I feel rather crappy and pray I am not headed into

another infection.  Still I slept about 6 hours as I 

woke stuffed up about 8am.  I do not want to get 

sick again.  We completely forgot the Super Bowl

was on and did not watch any of it.  I really do not

care since the Packers were not playing.

My nurse friends Carole and Gloria are supposed to 

come on Thursday so hope to feel better by then.

If I am still sick Wed. maybe Dr. Hatahet will order

something for me.  I need to make an appt to see the

NP at my doctors office too.  I am going to have to

start sliding scale insulin.  I cannot get my blood 

sugars under control.  I have been very good for the

most part about cutting carbs but my BS are still

running around 200 with some days lower and some

higher.  The good thing is I love Denise the Diabetic

educator/NP.  So am happy to see her.

Well I am going to say good night and will see you

tomorrow my love, lol.

Hugs,

Good Afternoon!

Are you ready for this?  It's 64 degrees right now, heading for 70!  I think we have snow predicted for next week ~ lol.

OhMyGoodness, what a couple of days!  One of our friends in the other group has had serious surgery and another friend and I have been able to text with her to see how she is.  That's wonderful because usually we have to wait on pins and needles to find out or call and worry that we're calling at a bad time.  On the other hand . . . . Adrienne (not the one who had surgery) set up a Group Text for us all to use talking to each other, but Faye (the patient) often just texts to one or the other of us.  So then whoever got the message copies and pastes it to share with the other one.  

Because I really don't spend much time talking on the cell phone and I haven't given my cell number out to many people, I know when I get a text it's from a "real person" and I don't want to miss it.  So, I set my sound up as a Duck Quack, to distinguish it between the email and other tones.   When the three of us start talking on three different threads and my phone Quacks each time someone texts me, it sounded like a Barnyard around here!   And it was exhausting!  LOL

So then Faye called me to share what was going on, and I had to type it up in an email for Adrienne and a message for the other group.   Doesn't sound like a big deal, but I'm a hermit.  I leave a quiet, solitary life.   LOL! LOL!

Anyway, I finished doing some of that and finding out what Faye had told Adrienne this morning.   Bless her heart, she has been through so much, and now her husband has some issues and she isn't there to take care of him, nor he her.  I want things to get better for them ~ right now!


I sure hope you aren't coming down with something!  We've been having horrid winds, have you?  Sometimes that can cause everything to dry out.  I was sneezing my head off for a while, but I wasn't sick.

I weighed today.  Down a whopping 6.5 lbs in a month.  On a pure Atkins diet, I should have lost that in a week!  I'm not doing pure Atkins and I am an immobile object, but still I had hoped for more.  Still, better than up, I guess. 

What does sliding scale insulin mean?  Shots?  Pills?  Barb (Noni2) just started insulin shots and it took a few weeks for her to get everything regulated, but now it is and it's going well.  She too has been through so much!    I hope you can get yours regulated quickly ~~~ AND that you don't have a real 'bug' so you can have fun with your friends.

Thanks for the pretty tag!

We got more snow again and yes we have had winds.
It is definitely a wild WI winter. Sadly a 4 wheeler
went through the ice on our lake and a father and
son died. So horrible. They were on an approved
path, but the winds must have opened up some
water over night and they were out very early in
the morning. Seems there are deaths every year.
Why can they not stay off the ice? It is not
worth it. I just do not get it. I worry every time
I know my nephews are out on it. They like to ice
fish. They want that big Sturgeon.  
I am better today. I think it was an issue with the
Cpap. I was readying about it more today and one
problem that is can cause is runny nose and sneezing.
If it keeps up I will talk to a tech about what can be
done. I know one suggestion was coating the inside of
your nose with a sterile lubricant to help prevent the
drying out and to play around with the humidity level.
I got new tubing and cushion for the mask. We will
see how tonight goes.
Sliding scale means that I will have to check my blood
sugar before each meal and take a certain amount of
insulin (shot) based on how high the BS is. I currently
am on 2 oral meds and a insulin pen with a set amount
of 20 units a day. I would probably be taking insulin
4x daily.  I forgot to make that appt. today.  I am
going to send off an email to them for an appt. if the doctor agrees. Quack, quack, lol. I should set my text message to something like that. I am never sure if it
is a message or a call. My number is out there so I
never answer any number that I do not recognize. I hope that your friends get better and recover quickly. Will
say a prayer for them.
Congrats on the weight loss. You are a better woman
than I am. I have never looked at the Atkin's diet. I
know it is low carb. But I do not want to have to
read a book to diet. Maybe I should set up an appt to
see a nutritionist again. They can set me up on a low
carb low calorie diet. I remember that I could have
11 carb choices a day, but cannot recall how many
of the other items I was supposed to have. I recall
doing very well when I stuck to that diet. Maybe
Denise can even help me with that.
Good night dear friend.
Love,

Hello!

Up, dressed, made up, hair done and breakfasted, and it's only 12:30 in the afternoon.   LOL  I seem to be moving in reverse.

It was 70 degrees yesterday and heading for 72 today!  Snow still predicted for the weekend.  Ha!

Your weather sounds as you say, typical WI or MN weather, but how horrible about the father and son who were killed.

We've had several deadly auto accidents, drunk drivers or hit and run.  One man with a long history of Dui Convictions who certainly shouldn't have been on the road wiped out a whole family.  You're torn between terrible sorrow and absolute outrage!

On Facebook today, Barb Musgrove posted that our Hope had passed away.  I adopted her when we first became part of annnieM's group as my Virtual Mother-in-law, since she was Barb's real mother-in-law.  What a lovely lady.   Her husband John passed away last year, so now they are reunited, but my world is diminished by her death.

http://www.dunlapmemorialhome.com/fh/obituaries/obituary.cfm?o_id=2931694&fh_id=12839

I'm so glad you are feeling better and not coming down with a cold or the flu!  I don't find it hard to believe that the CPAP dries out your nose.  I hadn't heard of sterile lubricant for the nose before.  Good to know.

Over the years I have lost very well on Atkins, but each time you go off and gain weight and then start it again you lose less.  Disappointing, but all I can do is keep trying.  I didn't get this fat overnight.  It's so hard to lose when you are so inactive, as I'm sure you know.  If we could go out and walk a mile or two every day it would be a whole lot easier, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.   And Walking isn't it anymore. Sigh.

Good luck getting the insulin dosage right!

I love my new tag ~ Chocolate and love, what's not to like?  Thank you!

I saw about Hope on FaceBook. So sad. I thought about her often, she was such a sweet woman and loved playing games and getting tags. I enjoyed her so much. 89 is a good long life. I did not know she had been in hospice. I often thought of her.
Today is more of the same with sneezing and a runny nose. I will ask Dr. Hatahet about it tomorrow. Maybe there is something that can be done.
I hope so. I want weather in the 70's. Low 70's is my ideal weather.  Where can I get that year round? lol. Like I would ever move.
We just had a horrible crash too. A man with his 7 yo son crossed the center line and skimmed off a van and the hit a semi head on. The man and his son were killed. The woman and child in the can and the semi driver were unhurt. So awful though. I bet the fathers attention was probably drawn to his son for some reason. Just so sad. I hate when children die. Not that I like it when adults die but children have not even had a chance at life yet. Do I have to read the book to know how Atkins works? Besides being low carb? Maybe I can incorporate some of it into my life. I hear you about not moving. I bet I even move less than you. I move less than my 82 yo mother.
I have my appt set up for Monday with Denise the NP. They told me to allow and hour for the meeting. Maybe she can help me get on track. Chat with you tomorrow after I see my Pulmonologist. I matched the frame to a leaf and should have matched it to the lettering which was chosen from within a leaf too. At least the font here matches well. Always 2nd guessing myself.

Happy Hump Day!

A little cooler today, currently 48 heading for 61, but we may not get out of the 40s tomorrow.

Mike has to make a grocery run this morning but I'm not going with him.  He plans to make vegetable beef soup with some soup bones tomorrow.  I plan t eat and enjoy. 

He wants to go to The Keg for dinner tonight.  Fine EXCEPT . . . they have my second favorite appetizer, brie on crostini with pepper sauce and pesto.  Literally to die for, and I'm trying to cut the carbs!  Hopefully my will power WILL choose a small steak and no appetizer. 

There seem to be so many tragedies like these ~ bad car accidents resulting in death, hit and runs and then just the thugs causing mayhem.  We had another overnight, someone in a truck, speeding and lost control and smashed into a light post, killing himself.  At least no one else was involved.  Terrible for his family, but I hate it more when someone else is just driving down the road and someone smashes into them.

Oh, I hope your NP can give you some help.  I'm being pretty "good" but not seeing much in the way of results.  Still on I plod.

The Atkins support Group on Facebook has the original Dr Atkins book shared for us to use.  They really don't seem to approve of the newer versions.  Anyway, they shared with me, so I'll share with you. 

http://evilloop.com/atkins.pdf

I hope you get some good help from the Pulmonologist!

Thank you for the lovely Valentine's tag!

Good luck with the carbs, though sometimes it is best to allow yourself a treat now and then and that appetizer sounds awfully tempting. But then again a nice steak and salad is great too. Enjoy!

 Thanks for sharing the Atkins link with me.  I will have to have a look at it and see if it is something I can do. I will not share it with anyone else.

So I saw Dr. Hatahet today. He said my Cpap read out was good and I was well within guidelines with my Cpap and in compliance with medicare rules.  He said before the Cpap I was experiencing 55 episodes and that anything under 5 is acceptable.  I am now only experiencing 1.  My breathing was clear and not wheezy. He was concerned about my hear rate as it was 130. He said a lot of my meds would cause rapid heart rate. I said it is always high but he said not usually this high.  My albuterol and Symbicort inhalers and the nebulizer treatments will all raise heart rate.  I usually only do the nebulizer in the morning but this morning I did all..2 puffs of both inhalers and the neb treatment so I probably shot that pulse rate right up there.  So he said it is easier to take away meds than to add them.  So reduce the Symbicort to one puff 2x daily and the neb treatments are as needed, do not need to do them as often.  So hopefully in 6 months it will be better.  Also talked to him about the extreme dryness in my mouth and throat. I already have the humidifier at the highest setting and it does not help. So he told me to get a heated humidifier and put it on the floor next to the Cpap. That way is will pull in already humidified air and then humidify it more. So I got one and will see if it works. Will get it set up tomorrow. I hope.
The ladies are coming tomorrow night and we are getting our food from Dairy Queen. That was Gloria's choice. I have chosen the Mushroom Swill Grillburger Combo. I do not even want to say how many carbs are in it.  I think it was about 85, half a day of carbs.  I will have to limit the rest of the say greatly. Plus we are having cupcakes for dessert.  
I am supposed to recheck INR Fri. but am going to wait till Mon. Suz is working 10 hr days right now and Sat morning. She is exhausted each day so I will wait. It is a 2 week check which is ridiculous anyway.
Well, off to lalaland.  Will try to get in tomorrow but may not. Hugs,

Hello  

Late this morning because I got up early (!) and took the trash and recycle cans to the curb.  Then I watched the sun begin to rise and got a couple of pictures.  My new camera lets me download them via our WiFi rather than having to use a Flash drive, so I was going to do that ~~~ and the realized I had to be completely retrained.  I'd done it right after Christmas but not since, and it took us both forever to figure out how to do it again. Of course once we (mostly Mike) figured it out, it was very simple, but we took over an hour getting there.     After all of our hard work, I MUST share.




This just shows some of the "jewels" (city lights)



Getting a bit cooler today.  It's only going to be 50 they say.  It was 37 when I took the cans to the curb and I was only wearing a sweatshirt but I was still comfortable.  No wind!

Looking at lots of the borders I made, there appear to be missing tiles.  I didn't delete anything, so I have to believe there is a problem with Photobucket.   I'll look later to see if anything is obvious, or if everything is just restored later.   

Mike hasn't been sleeping well and he hasn't felt great fr the last few days.  With getting groceries yesterday he was pretty tired so we decided not to go out, but to just stay home and have frozen quiche.  Good plan because he looks much "perkier" today.  He's still planning on making soup.

Your results with your Dr sounded good!  I'm so glad!  I'm also glad you went ahead and got the new humidifier, and I sure hope it works!

You may not be as enthused about Atkins when you read that the allowable carbs during the induction period are 20!  It's really a different way of eating, but if you were to try it you would find that in short order you wouldn't be hungry.   You don't count calories at all, only carbs and most of them should come from "good" veggies and fruits.  Their good does not translate to my good  ~ ha.  All of my favorite veggies are high carb ~~ carrots, peas, corn, etc.  I think you enjoy a lot of 'their' veggies more than I do.   The dread cauliflower is one the folks in the Atkins groupp swear by and they use it to make potato substitutes.    I ramble.  It's just that when you said 85 was half a day's allowable carbs I about spit my coffee on my screen.   LOL

Oooh, a Marti Gras tag!  Yay!  (Well, that's what I'm calling it and how I will use it, anyway.)    Very pretty.  Thank you!

Have fun with the Ladies!

Good Afternoon.

Mike made his Vegetable-beef soup yesterday.  He's been talking about this for weeks, with the Mad Chemist gleam in his eye. (You know his degree is in Chemistry, right?) Apparently he used to make it when he was home from college and freeze it and take it back with him but he hasn't made it since.  I have had home made soup that was supposed to be wonderful but wasn't, to me at least, so while I wasn't exactly excited anticipating it, I tried to be supportive.  We had it for dinner last night and OMG was it GOOD! The best I have ever had anywhere!  I just hope we have enough left after eating on it for several days to freeze some for later!  I wish I could share with you!  The Mad Chemist ROCKS!

Getting colder here and supposedly going to snow tomorrow.   We'll see.

Sort of sad news, Rod Mckuen died yesterday. Do you remember him?  Poet and Song writer. He helped me through my young woman angst.  How could this MAN write words that expressed the things I felt that I wouldn't even share with my girlfriends because I feared they would think I was crazy.  Yet this man wrote of them, and millions bought his books and the record albums of his songs sung by Glen Yarborough.  Maybe I wasn't crazy after all . . .

After I posted yesterday I went into Photobucket but I couldn't see anything wrong.  I couldn't find the exact tiles that were missing but nothing seemed to be screwed up.  So then I came back here and guess what?  All the borders were whole again!   

Have a Happy Day!

Hello Dorothy
Had a lovely evening yesterday, though the food sucked.  
I have always liked Dairy Queen, but this time it was very disappointing. I do not know how they have the nerve to call that thing I ate a Mushroom Swiss Grill Burger.  It was almost like it was a sauce made from cream of mushroom soup.  Just little bits and pieces of mushroom in a sauce.  It made the bun mushy which I hate.  My fries were just warm and limp, no crispy to them.  So sad to waste carbs that way, lol.  

I meant to tell you about the pork loin we had this week.  It 
was Apple Bourbon and it was delicious.  But my mama did not like it at all so she has been cutting it up in my salads all week.  Her loss is my gain.  

20 carbs?  What the hell?  The diet the nutritionist gave me allowed me to have 11 carb choices and each carb choice equals 15 mg of carbs.  So that would be 161 carbs.  LOL, your favorite veggies and my least favorite ones.  Mine are all those lovely greens that I can only have a little of.  I do love cauliflower 
too.  How long do you only get 20 carbs...that is insane.  I do 
not think it will be the diet for me.  Maybe I will try lowering my carb choices to less than 11.  Will see what Denise thinks
 on Monday.  

Your photo's are so pretty.  I can see why you call the lights jewels.  So wonderful to be able to see that all the time.  That is pretty nifty to be able to send the pic via wifi.  Every day they come up with more ways to make life simpler.  Now if they could find a way to do my dishes, wash my clothes and clean my house, I would be in heaven.

Mardi Gras tag?  Colors are a bit off for that, lol.  I should look at making some Mardi Gras tags.  I have a couple of tubes for that and a huge scrap kit.  Will have to search for tubes.

My mom makes a great vegetable beef soup too, it is never the same but it is always good.  Usually contains whatever veggies we have in the fridge, including cauliflower.  Cabbage too.  Mom uses hamburger for the beef.  I am sure Mike makes a great one and will take your word for it.  I know you have great taste.

I hope he starts sleeping better.  It really takes it toll on you when you do not sleep well.  Last night I had a good sleep and I was not falling asleep over my laptop today.

Faith, Hope and Love
and the greatest of these is Love.
I love you and value you in my life.
Hugs,

Good Morning ~ for a few more minutes.

We may not get our predicted snow after all.  Or we may ~ ha.  If we do, I don't think it will amount to much.  Currently 36 degrees heading for 46.  Much warmer and less snowy than originally forecasted. LOOKS cold out there.

Well Pooh!  Dairy Queen really disappointed. I think when something like that happens it really IS worse when you are trying to count the carbs (or whatever).  If you can eat anything, it's annoying but not as big a deal as when you are literally blowing the carbs on something that isn't good.

I haven't made a Pork Loin in ages.  Is this a recipe you made, or a loin you bought?   Sounds good to me.

Laughing at your comment about finding an App to do your dishes and wash your clothes, etc.  My friend Faye is back home from her surgery and texted that in addition to the Nurse, PT and OT who were coming to visit her, someone would also come twice a week to help her shower.  She said she'd rather they came and CLEANED the shower and other things.  LOL

I do have a great Mardi Gras tag you made for me ~ last year?  I don't remember when, but I do remember where I stored it! 

Mike would like your mom's soup with the cauliflower but he is kind enough not to inflict that awful stuff on me. (lol)  

Mike's ok, just much more tired than he ought to be.  I go through that sometimes too.    I don't think Mike CAN cook without using a Secret Ingredient (or two).  A splash of Grand Marnier definitely went into the soup.  You don't taste orange or liquor, but there is a hint of sweet that is lovely.  There was also a quarter of a cup of cabernet.  He also used some V8 juice in addition to beef stock, some prime rib bones he froze after our Christmas dinner and a pound of tenderloin plus, of course, lots of vegetables (but not those awful ones you like ~~ LOL).  Whatever he did, it was Gooood.   IS Good, we're still eating it! 

Thank you for the beautiful tag.  I hope you know that I love you, too.

RE:JANUARY 2015 CHAT...HAPPY NEW YEAR CUPPA'S

Well, mom decided that she was not fooling around anymore with the shoveling so this morning she called Bud...our landlord and talked to him about it.  He said he would be over in about an hour.  Right after that Chris went out and shovelled.  When he came we found out that he called her and asked if there was a reason that the sidewalks were not shovelled yet and she told him she was going right out.  I think he laid down the law with her as they take money off their rent for doing the shovelling.
My mom also makes a catsup, mustard and brown sugar topping.  Chris's meatloaf would have been helped greatly by it,  At least there would have been flavor then.
The cake is a little dry, but that may have to do with mom using diced pineapple instead of crushed, which it calls for.  She also over cooked it a little bit.  Not to bad though.  I liked it a lot. 
I think that something is going to happen soon when it comes to the terrorists.  I saw where a news journalist from the victims country called for them to start retaliating to them with their own tactics.  Let's kill their women, let's kill their children.  Show them no mercy.  I think that is almost as scary as the terrorists.  I just want it to be over with.  STOP KILLING!!!  I know that it is not popular but I believe in the death penalty and anyone that deliberately kills another with malice should be put to death.  I know that does not apply to war, but it should when they are doing the atrocities that these terrorists are.  I have to let this go, I know that they will be made to answer for their crimes someday.
Looks like mom will claim her bet winnings for tomorrow night, but has not decided from where yet.  Has to be somewhere that delivers.  I am going to check out a new place that is attached to Family Video.  They deliver and will deliver a movie too.  Might be fun if they have something mom would like.  Going to check that out next.
Glad you slept so well, hope you do tonight too!
Hugs,
