Hello to you!

Hubby and I are still working on getting to feeling better and counting down the days til we leave...I told him if I'm not better when it's time to leave, I'm not going, which he doesn't accept that. He is VERY EXCITED about us going (I am, too...but how much fun can 2 people with sore throats, chills, sweats, blowing noses, and coughing have together???)

Do you ever feel like screaming??? My Mother called off and on yesterday into last nite, first it was she was wanting me to go get her and bring her home with me...she was very confused and thought that because they had her sitting in her wheelchair in the dining room while they did a time-consuming big clean on her room that she had no home, cause she couldn't go to her bed...then later she was calling cause she wanted me to come and spend time and talk with her...I'd already explained to her that I'd been sick in the bed with a sore throat for 2 days...she prayed for me over the phone...then she was right back to trying to get me to come, saying she "might not make it" if I didn't come...(SCREAM)...I told her I was not able to come and that I also didn't want her to get the sore throat from me, which was ignored...Finally I told her I would try to come later this week, Thursday or Friday if I'm able...but she didn't accept that...she told me "Wednesday!"...which was tomorrow (which is today)...but I said no...but that if I was able it would be Thursday or Friday...

Then today, I've had more to contend with...I very dizzily and weakly barely made it driving a couple miles to the grocery store to get something for Hubby I thought he needed and was out of (later I found out he wasn't out of it)...only to be questioned by someone (a very long-time-ago acquaintance that I've not talked to in many years) who was shopping in there asking me about someone in my family (personal questions)...which I avoided as best I could answering...(SCREAM)...

And I feel a lot of GRIEF...we've lost 6 people we've known and loved in just the past few months...

This may sound funny to some people, but I've starting drinking coffee again against my dr's recommendations...and I don't mean a little, either...more like almost a potful a day...(It's either that are have 1000 cals nitetime food binges every nite...)...SCREAM!!!

Okay...thanks for listening...

Going to read entries now...

Lord Jesus, I confess that I have sinned against You in the way I have lived my life. I am truly sorry and I want to turn from my selfish ways and follow You.

Poor thing..(((((((((HUGS)))))))))) Hang in there. I hope you both are feeling better. I am still keeping you in my prayers. I know what you mean. Keep your chin up things will get better.


mmuraro on 04/09/2008:
Scream, dear, you deserve it. I scream in the car sometimes when i need to vent. that way no one hears you or think you're insane. hehe. i am sorry things are tough right now. It must be hard to deal with the situation with your mom, but you seem to be handling it well. when acquaintances ask me thinks that are none of their business, i usually answer in a way that makes them uncomfortable, so they dont ask others again. hahahaha. as for that coffee, is it the caffeine that your doc doesnt want you to have? you could try that. or maybe make them half and half. or herb tea... yum. xoxoxo


thinnsidenotout on 04/09/2008:
Maria : - )~ Um... Why did doc advise you to off coffee?... You are trading one evil for another if you are replacing the food with coffee, just for the sake of something to keep you occupied.... I drink 2 cups of coffee with breakfast and sometimes a cup early afternoon... But I have pretty much given up the diet soda... I never have increased the amount of coffee, to replace the sodas, just water..... Are you getting plenty water? The water in the coffee doesn't count as far as I am concerned... Your Screaming!!!! I know it!....

I do not envy you in the rough time you have been experiencing of those 6 losses... Man, that is enough to drive the most sane person to being totally "off kilter"....

Your mom knows how to get to you apparently... I am glad that you showed strength and stuck to your guns on TELLING her when you COULD maybe be with her... It wasn't easy I know, but you have to do that... It is o.k. to scream!

Psalms 37:5 "Commit thy way unto the Lord: trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass".... In His time is so hard to wait for sometimes, but my prayers are with you in this "season" you are in... I pray for your physical & mental strength and wisdom....

Rest & Healing = A "Whoppin' Good Time" on that vacation!!!!!

Hello to you!

Hope you're having a wonderful day! It is chilly here in S.C...low 60's.

Well, here is another

'Lesson For Today'

Saving Money On Gifts:

With gas prices going up and with it, groceries and other things, consider this: A gift recycling to save money. Maybe you already do it and maybe you don't. I've been cleaning out a closet and in it were lots of gifts that I've not used...so they are just like new and some are still in their original boxes. Some have been stored for a long time. What I've been doing is setting them aside in a 'gift bin' to give for birthday and Christmas presents. A friend told me yesterday that her birthday was this week. No problem...I looked at the gifts in the 'gift bin' and picked out something very nice, unused and still in its original packaging...then I wrapped it in some pretty flowery festive paper (that was also free that had been used to wrap something we received one time)... and I found a 'used' (but you couldn't tell it) festive ribbon to put on top. For her birthday card, I used a new card that was one in a pack of 8 for $1.00 that had a nice picture and also a Bible verse on the front and the inside was blank so I wrote her what I wanted her card to say. The card was probably 13 cents...and that's what I had in her birthday present that I gave her yesterday! I'm getting ready for Christmas presents next. Now I realize we may not want to give EVERYONE recycled gifts, but for lots of folks, I think it's a good money-saving idea.

That's the 'Lesson For Today'.

FRITTERS on 11/09/2007:
When you are doing that regifting, I hope you rembember where it came from in the first place - you wouldn't want to give it back to the giver!!!! Happy weekend

Hi,just passing to say hello.Hope you are doing well.I have been doing some christmas wrapping,not the best of jobs, as there are too many to do.Take care,Julie


greengirl on 11/10/2007:
Hi Maria :o) Like Mcwoo I'm just calling by to say hello as I have been missing for awhile. Hope you are doing well. I think that recycling of any kind is worthwhile, but I have to agree with FRITTERS about not giving a gift back to the original giver!!! Have a great weekend :)


hollybelle on 11/11/2007:
Personally, I love the re-gifting idea and have done it before. Also - I have found really great cards for $.50 each at Big Lots and The Dollar Store (don't know if ou have those in your locale) that are just great. Also - when I see something on a great sale that almost anyone would like I buy two or three of them to have on hand - also a great gift is a home-made dinner from me to a friend. I cook once (twice as much) and keep one and give the other away. Thanks for your comments on my diary and sharing your cost-saving tips. I am ALWAYS looking for ways to save money - Fritters has a point about remembering where the gift came from - I usually mark something I don't use with the gift card of a sticky note of who gave it to ensure I don't give back too close to the person who gave it, etc.

Hello to you!

Hope you're having a fantastic Saturday!

Went to the grocery store this morning...got some low-calorie foods that are nutritious and filling...bought a 200 calories frozen dinner (turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, green peas...all for only 200 cals)...also bought a box of 6 beef corndogs, frozen kind, 170 cals each...also got some beef bacon at 35 cals a piece...and a big bag of bananas...they are only about 100 cals for a medium banana... This afternoon is a baby shower at church but I've saved some calories for it and a few for tonite...

So far today I've had: Extra large banana, 200, microwaved turkey dinner, 200, watermelon (only 50 cals per cup), 200, one piece of plain toast, 65, and 5 pieces of beef bacon, 175...840 estimated cals thus far...and I figure about 300 at the shower this afternoon and about 2 or 300 cals tonite, which will total around 1400 or 1500 cals for today. It is going on 3 pm here now and the shower starts in a little over an hour.

I found a FANTASTIC place on the web that you may be interested in visiting...not only does it give calorie counts and nutritional information for different foods but it ALSO gives the amount of exercise the particular food equals! Here is the link: http://www.calorieking.com/foods/calories-in-fruits-fresh-banana-edible-portion_f-Y2lkPTM3MDY4JmJpZD0xJmZpZD03MzMyOSZlaWQ9MTcyODk3NDI3JnBvcz0xJnBhcj0ma2V5PWJhbmFuYQ.html

Going to read some entries...have a nice day!

Hello to you beautiful people!

It's a beautiful, sunny, 80's day here and Hubby is off work today! He and I ate out brunch together this morning at Golden Corral buffet...I had a salad, 350, country fried steak (part), 100, eggs and grits, 200, a little hash browns potatoes, 50, and a little fruit, 50. I resisted the sweet deserts! Afternoon snack was an extra-decked-high McD's cone of vanilla soft-serve ice cream...they are usually 150 cals, but mine was stacked so high, I'm going to count it double-cal'd at 300.

So far today, cals est. at 1050 and it's around 2:30pm...I am hoping to maintain for today and tomorrow, since Hubby is home...

Supper will probably be string beans and potatoes, 200...and I may have something else to total from 1200 to 1700 tops. w3h

Update: Supper was string beans and potatoes, 200, 100 cal popcorn, and 1/2 lowfat mayo/relish sandwich, 100. Total estimated for the day: 1450 cals.

m-L 1h

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Hello to you! Can we say RAIN today in S.C.????? Most of the day! But, thank the good Lord for it! Rain clears and cleans the air and waters everything...keeps the dust down, etc.

Today was another very busy day...after prayer this morning, I began with cleaning house and washing Hubby's and my clothes, as well as Mom's....I also made up 3 pans of homemade biscuits and put them into the freezer to be taken out tomorrow about 1 hour before church and bake them in the oven and take them to church for our annual Thanksgiving supper at church! Really looking forward to that! I also decorated 18 little cake squares (each about the size of a large cupcake) to take for one of the deserts at church. Looks like little red flowers with green leaves on white icing on each of the cake squares...that's in the freezer also, to be thawed out tomorrow so will be ready to take tomorrow nite...I also fixed Daughter's lunch when she came by on her lunch break...She showed me her arm, which is slowly healing from her fall and gash in it which resulted in 12 stitches in it...her's is her left arm, same as her Grandma's is left arm, too...both of them fell days apart and injured their left arms!!!!! But Mom broke hers....later after Hubby came home and ate, we went and visited Mom who is still in the hospital...she'd asked me to bring her a fried egg sandwich, which I did, cause she said she didn't eat much at lunch, just the chocolate pudding...She is still in the bed and refusing physical therapy...said she hurts too much to get up and walk other than with the assistance of nurses to the bathroom...After we left from there, we drove about 15 miles to get a vacumn cleaner belt....Then we went back to the mall again and picked up my ring again...it is beautiful! Then Hubby and I walked a little in the mall....on the way back home, we listened to Christmas music already playing on the radio! Of course I LOVE Christmas music...I don't mind listening to it in the summertime, even!

Food today: 2 toast w marg, 1 fried egg, 1 baked fish, 2 cups baked okra, 1 McD's cheeseburger (small one), and 1 McD's walnut and fruit salad.

Well, going to read some entries...thanks for reading...thanks for your encouragements!!!!!!!!!

Remember....Jesus loves you, and gave His life for your salvation....and he is the only way to be saved! Will you ask Him to be your Lord and Saviour today?

Hello to you! It was sunny, warm (high in 60's) day here in S.C. today!

Hubby had the day off, so I surprised him by taking him out to Shoney's breakfast buffet...then we went and got a tire put on Hubby's truck...then we went and did a little shopping for my Mom, who is still in the hospital recovering from a a fall that occurred on Oct. 29th and resulted in a broken arm and a lot of bruising...then we went and visited her. When we went in, she was sitting up in the loungechair, but with her head bent over, holding it up with her good hand. She wanted to get back into bed and said she'd been sitting up 3 hours and needed assistance to get into her bed, but I encouraged her to try to get out of the chair which was by her bed and onto the bed by herself as it was about even...which she did with me standing by her with my hand on her back and assuring her she could do it and she did! We visited her a while, then left and went to get Hubby's rear-view mirror reglued that had fallen off his windshield last nite...then we went to Mom's apartment and cleaned it real good for 90-day inspection that is coming up in a couple of days. Then after this, Hubby suggested we go ahead and eat out for supper tonite instead of tomorrow nite as was planned when we would again pick up my ring...so we did...buffet...but I was GOOD!!! Total for today about 1500 cals!

Well, going to read some entries...

Remember....Jesus loves you, and gave His life for your salvation....and he is the only way to be saved! Will you ask Him to be your Lord and Saviour today?

Hello to you!!! I've been busy this morning...took my Mom to the local farmers' market and she got watermelon, canteloupe, colored butterbeans, and cucumbers. She did a lot of walking there. I bought her some boiled peanuts. Then we stopped by a Merita store, where you get breads, etc. for reduced prices on the way back and she sent for her some rolls and me a cinnamon bun. I visited her a little while at her apartment after I took her back home and then I came back home. It is very, very warm in the high 80's fahrenheit right now and there is a tropical storm nearby...we may get some rain/and or/storms from it soon...maybe even today, as we are under a severe thunderstorm watch now...only the Lord knows...

Hope you're having a wonderful Monday.

Today's Menu Plan, estimates:

Breakfast: 1/2 banana, 50.

Lunch: 2 cinnamon rolls, 410, 1/2 banana, 50.

Snack: 1 Nutty Buddy ice cream, 210.

Snack: 1 fatfree low cal bologna and 2 lite wheat bread, mustard, 100.

Snack: 1 cup canteloupe, 50, 1 banana, 100, cheddar cheese, 150.

Supper: 1 baked hamburger, ketchup, mustard,200, 1 corn on the cob, 200.

Snack: 2 fat free chocolate fudge cycle ice creams, 200.

Late Snack: popcorn, 200, chicken weiner, 100.

It is not easy to think about eating more to maintain, cause I'm not used to doing that.

Exercise Plan: Walking at the farmer's market and on the treadmill here at home and playing the piano.

Remember...Jesus loves ya and so do I!

Love, Maria (smile!)

Hi there,

Yea i saw the Hurricane coverage on Sky News, it seems its the beginning of the season and they already named the first one Hurricane Alberto. I just pray that it loses it momentum before reaching the coast.

Your eating is great and varied like always. Dont force yourself to eat if you dont feel like it. Carry on with this way of eating and see if you actually still lose a lot of weight, if not you can keep on with it. If you are still losing but dont feel like eating you can perhaps take supplemental energy drinks. They are caloric but dont fill you up that much.

Have a great day.

Your foods for the day sound delicious. To answer your question, I basically put whatever I have around in my turkey soup! I like to roast whole turkeys and turkey breasts in the winter months and I freeze the legs, wings and assorted scraps and bones. I had a large collection of frozen stuff so I used that as the base and added onions, garlic, fresh peppers, scallions and some fresh dill that I had, as well as other herbs. I also added a couple of ancho peppers since I like some kick in my foods. I added some spiral pasta and let the whole thing simmer in the crockpot for a day. I've frozen it into small portions and it reheats nicely!

Dear Maria I'm not in the Ukraine but in the UK - England. Not as interesting as the Ukraine I would imagine. Well done on the diet - how did you get your weight to 4 decimal places! Bye for now Lil
