Well I am sitting here looking out of our new windows….I love them…I will never order anything from Home Depot again this all started back on Jan 9th ! But these windows fit and are wonderful. We spent the day painting around them and getting the house back in order. Glad that little gig is over!!! We put the new book case together without to much arguing, my husband doesn’t like to follow the directions, he just rams ahead and thinks he knows best LOL but he finally gave in and did it step by step even if it didn’t make any sense to him. LOL So I was able to gather all my stacks of books and they are in one place, he was saying it was a lot of books, however if he only knew how many I have gotten rid of during this move…LOL I have always loved books. Needless to say we are way happier with the house, and having the washer and dryer out in the Arizona room has made a huge difference. We bought metal shelves to put where they were in the kitchen, well the hall way leading out the door, anyway makes a lot more room for storage and opened up the kitchen area. Now I need to work on the cabinets…LOL One step at a time….
I haven’t been back on the scale but feeling great, lots of energy, and counting my calories, they vary from 1000 to 1500 sometimes higher. Just trying to make it all work. I am not sure I ever mentioned my sciatica was acting up. My rocker that I have sat in for over 1 years finally gave in and apparently it was my hip/sciatica that pointed that out…LOL it is so much better from what it was, but still giving me fits at night and if I sit in the wrong type of chair. I have been doing my upper arms and neck area as far as exercise goes. I do not want to irritate my sciatica anymore than it is. I have been seeing my chiro 3 times a week for several weeks. I am hoping that it is better soon…At least I can stand up without seeing stars at this point. I hate whining, but son of a gun the pain cam stop you in your place…. so much for that…I am eating healthy and eating smaller portions, that’s one of my biggest problems. I like to eat!!!
Hubby is still dealing with his lung issues went to a new pulmonologist and he is thinking his COPD is being set off by allergies. Lots of pollen in the desert at this time of the year especially as it is like spring here, between the agricultural fields and the desert we get a double whammy here. The wind is also a huge factor as they say it can carry pollen from over 50+ miles with it to us. I believe it….so he is setting him up for a scratch test for local pollen and switched him to a new steroid inhaler out on the market. The Breo really effected his eyes, made them like he was looking through a fog, so he wouldn’t use it…Were heading into town in an hour for my chiro and his appointment with his ear MD. Will it never end!!! But really we are both doing great….
Getting ready for my kids to come…My son has tried to always spend his birthdays with me, makes my heart happy for sure!! So he is coming with his girlfriend and there new jeep, and my daughter is flying in for the occasion. It will be fun. He will take off with his gal and go on a 2 day road trip out on a trial here called Camino del Diablo, its over a 1000 year old trail used first as a foot path by by Indians, then settlers and military men. They are very excited. It literally starts about 3 miles from our house and runs east across the Barry Goldwater bombing range and military fields. They have to have permits and can only go during certain times of the year. He is still working on that. So who knows, there are all sorts of trials and roads for them to go on….My daughter is making her first trip here, I am looking forward to showing her around and hitting the local tearoom one of her favorite things to do. It will be a very quick weekend….
We have been out in the desert to go to a Skull Rock, you have to drive about 12 miles off the road to get to it, slow going but pretty scenery. Going to take the kids up here. You can walk inside, people have started camp fires in side…lots of fun stuff to see in the desert southwest..
Hate to say it but the weather has been wonderful here….just right to be exact, the wind could cooperate a little more, but hey its winter…The news man said it was going to be a beautiful sunset the other day so we hoped in the car and headed west, but the clouds almost all went away at the last hour of sunset, they are what makes the sunsets here so nice…….we ended up about 10 miles from Mexico and waited….this is the best it got in my opinion…
