Hello Lovely Girls, Just dropping by to let you know that I am fine, well, managing anyway.................hang on just having a hot flush!!!! Grrrrr!! It never stops does it? I mean life in general, just when you think you have sorted out one thing another joins the queue!! Menopause kicked in about three weeks ago, I have been trying natural methods but to tell the truth I figure out their is not much point in living in the 21st century and not taking advantage of modern medicine. I will be going for HRT, I don't intend to put up with this. Maybe if Winter was coming but of course, true to form Summer is on it's way. We have already have had a couple of hot days and it will be near 100 degrees on Friday:( My daughter will be a divorced woman in 21 days, she and her husband seem OK with it and both say they are good friends, I mean they even sat down together at the computer and filled in the divorce forms together!!!! What the!!!! Sounds really weird to me but it's better they be friends than fighting and he still phones her every day. Does this sound like people about to be divorced or what? My daughter in law was found to have cervical cancer and had a successful operation and all is well but will have to have bi yearly checks. Son in law is still out of work, although gets an occasional job through his business, it makes me very worried about the mortgage payments. I have been told not to worry however, it's a bit tricky.

OK, now........she says hopefully!!! Looking on the bright side (as you know I try to do- although the last paragraph would not reflect that!). My daughter's health is doing better than normal, no hospital trips since February.... knock on wood. The children are all healthy and happy (well, except for the teenager but that normal anyway - he is turning moody quickly but always but on his smiley face for his nana:). I got to see my sons children a couple of weeks ago. Now 8 and nearly 2, of course they are soo handsome and doing well. So that was a lovely visit, I wish they lived closer, it's only a couple of hours away but I can't drive that far anymore and my son works away from home (he is a mechanical engineer) near the top of Western Australia 19 days away and then they fly him back to Sydney for 12 days. He will be 35 next birthday in December, how did that happen? My baby will be 35!! OK, that's enough rambling.I hope you girls are all happy and healthy and doing well with your various healthy choices. I seem to be holding steady on the weight front which in itself is practically a miracle. I don't even think about food much these days, just eat when I need to, mostly healthy choices. Sooooo wonderful not to be 'dieting', which of course is a dieting choice in itself. love you girls and miss you. I shall return............as someone famous said. (I know it was MacArthur!!). Look after yourself:)

grannyannie on 10/01/2012:
Moogy, nice to hear from you!! Some couples are much better off as friends than spouses, maybe they are the same?

Menopause, oh what fun! I was only 40 when it hit me and I did take HRT for 10 years. My doctor said I was too young not to go on it for a while. I think 10 years was too much though, as another doctor pointed out. So it's been 20 years for me!

Glad you daughter is doing well. Have a great day!

Umpqua on 10/01/2012:
It's good to see a post from you and that's wonderful you got to spend some time with your other grandchildren. My MIL is moving about 2 hours away but I'm hoping we'll still be able to see her somewhat often. That's great that the divorce seems to be going amicably, especially for the grandchildren. I hope the HRT helps you - of course you should seek out medical help to deal with it! Take care.

V on 10/01/2012:
I hope the meds help with the flashes.. Sorry to hear about the divorce :( but at least they are not bickering..I am so happy to hear that D is in good health <3 Lub YOU!

liza36 on 10/01/2012:
So glad to hear from you! It sounds like lots has happened in your family but you are staying strong and doing well despite it all. Take care, and post again soon.

biscottibody59 on 10/08/2012:
I hope the HRT goes well for you! I was offered it, but never filled the prescription after finding out so much of my problem was the sleep apnea. I kept it in the back burner, just in case. And to be fair hot flashes haven't been that much of an issue--then or now. I find that if I get a good long walk (or similar regular activity) in daily--the hot flashes are nonexistent.

Hope you fare well with everything--take good care of yourself!

I enjoyed my visit in your country. Of course only saw some of the sights but enoyed what I saw. Very nice people also. Hope you are doing fine.

Hello Lovely Girls, Thank you so much for coming to look for me. Your support and care is wonderful. It has been an extemely difficult few weeks with family turmoil, dangerous medical issues and while we have become used to some things we still have the posibility of having to find somewhere else to live after Christmas. I am finding life quite tricky at the moment, but still trying to look for the bright spots, my grandchildren continue to give me great joy. I plod along with my usual days which I am sure my regular readers will not need me to recite. My weight has dropped slightly I feel. So another bright spot there:) I am sure things will work out for the best one way or another, it's the journey that I find difficult. As ever I send my love to you lovely women who have given me another reason to smile with your wonderful comments and love. I will try to drop in more regularly, if not weekly:) Love you girls:)

thinkpositive on 09/12/2012:
So good to hear from you; knew you must have been dealing with some tough issues. Sorry that life has given you such challenges. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I may be traveling through Australia in mid to late Oct. and will contact you then to see if you would be able to meet for tea.

inmorning on 09/12/2012:
I hope things keep getting better for you. Give yourself a hug.

Happiness comes of the capacity to feel deeply, to enjoy simply, to think freely, to risk life, to be needed.   Storm Jameson

Today I am grateful for: pondering spiritual truths, a simple life, time alone

Hello Lovely Girls, It's promising to be another lovely day, although we have clouds at the moment, they are promising high sixties again! Short and sweet today, I only have my usual day to report. Not that I am complaining I am content with my simple life. It's all I can really cope with! I was happy with my food yesterday., I actually had two meals which is unusual. I usually have one meal and a snack, plus breakfast of course which is sometimes only hot chocolate. It is funny just eating what you feel like. Some days not very much and other's quite a bit. Hope you girls have a happy and healthy day:)

Yesterday's Food

hot chocolate

greek style chicken and salad wrap

Umpqua on 07/26/2012:
Great entry Moogy! What's next on the agenda, you ask? Of course there's always something ;) I want to wrap up the work in my family room so I can move upstairs and work on those rooms over the fall and winter. Also the double oven project I mentioned, and we have a deck makeover in progress that needs attention because the primer we chose last year was no good and has already begun peeling. Good thing we didn't do the entire thing because it all needs to be sanded down and repainted yet again. But we also have a date night, concert, parties and a camping trip on the agenda so those projects will just have to get done when they get done - fun is just as important!

LeakingLife on 07/27/2012:

Today I am grateful for: watching the princess sleeping, homecomings, eternal truths

Hello Lovely Girls, Foggy start to the morning here but going up to 68 degrees later when it clears. Nothing to complain about with that temp for the middle of Winter! It will be the same tomorrow as well! Yay! It was sleepover night with the princess last night and I awoke before she did, it was so lovely to just watch her sleep. Bliss!

I have my usual day today, a little cleaning, a little baking, the angel will come up for a visit, afternoon tea with the big kids and bathing the little girls. Oh! and something to add to the list, a little cat stroking ( I say as she sits at my feet waiting for attention!). It was my daughter's 38th birthday yesterday, how on earth did that happen!!!! I had a good food day and am moving along quite nicely. I was lying in bed yesterday having a feel of my body (as you do! lol) and could feel that things felt well! sleeker!! Not a word that you would use if you saw me but the best I can come up with at the moment. I have a full length mirror that I have placed so that I have to look in it several times a day and a could swear that my thighs are 'sleeker'. My daughter says my bum in smaller. All in all I am pretty sure I am still losing weight. I hope you girls have a good day:) Love you girls:)

Yesterday's Food

boiled eggs, bread and marg

teriyaki chicken and avocado sushi

Bangkok firecracker prawns

chocolate gelato

Happy Belated B day to your d! Also - I know what you mean about feeling sleeker. It's like you put your hand on your hips or rest your book on your middle and it's not quite the same - in a good way - YAY!

supercheese on 07/24/2012:
awww happy belated bday to your daughter!! Yay for feeling "sleeker" LOL

grannyannie on 07/25/2012:
Yahoo for sleeker! Great description! Well done. And belated happy birthday to your daughter. I know the feeling - mine are 41 and nearly 39. But then I was a baby when I married. :-)

Re brownies, they weren't baked for me but I got stuck with them when friends cancelled. You're right that they be eaten right out of the freezer as well. Sigh.

Umpqua on 07/25/2012:
Aww, I hope your daughter had a nice birthday. Great news on feeling sleeker!

Today I am grateful for: enlightened people, homecomings, being a child's confidant

Hello Lovely Girls, Weather is nice and normal for this time of year, going for low sixties today! We had an uneventful weekend, which in itself is a pleasure to live through! Yay for that! I am getting in quick this morning as my daughter and I are travelling to our favourite shopping centre for a little retail therapy, the angel is coming with us, so no doubt she will share in the expenditure:) I am mostly along for the ride but I have my credit card for anything I see that I just have to have!!!

I had a pretty good weekend with my food, thought I had a bad day on Friday and did a quick calorie count (not really encouraged with intuitive eating!) and it was only around 1400, so no problems after all. Well, the cat is trying to kill her play mouse, again!! So funny to watch, she really is a lovely creature, I am so glad I rescued her. I hope you girls have a healthy and happy week ahead. Love you girls:)

Yesterday's Food

hot chocolate

egg and mayo sandwich

milk chocolate (I was desperate and had run out of my dark! but hey! I didn't eat anything else!)

grannyannie on 07/23/2012:
Good job on cals. Doing well. Aye brownies were calling. I did a quick nuke and it made the choc chips melt a bit. Mmm. Just way too small!

V on 07/23/2012:
So cool that Pretty Girl is giving you so much happiness :) Hope you enjoyed the retail therapy! Lub You

Umpqua on 07/23/2012:
My kitties love to attack their stuffed mice too. They used to go outside but we found out the male was wandering across our busy street and that's too dangerous so now they must be content with toy mice instead of live prey. I'm fine with this ;) And oh yes, that 1/2 inch makes a huge difference to me! RE my double oven, our house came with one that is circa 1978. The top one has been broken for a while and the bottom one isn't doing so hot these days either. I'm hoping I can get a new one in the fall since I usually do Thanksgiving here and it's difficult with a small unreliable oven!

LeakingLife on 07/23/2012:

Today I am grateful for: my health, my home, my family

Hello Lovely Girls, The sun in shining but it is -1 degree (that's 30 f to most of you), literally below freezing. Heading up to mid sixties though, so no complaints, or at least I am trying not to!! Thank you for all the support for my daughter and me! She is going out shopping without me today but with the two middle children (they have the day off today). She is feeling almost back to normal, well, normal for her anyway!!

I have had two good night's sleep and am feeling almost back to normal myself:) I only have afternoon tea with my biggest boy this afternoon and bathing the little girls on the agenda (they have decreed that it's nicer to have a bath at nana's than downstairs!). So, a quiet day, which will be nice:) I hope you have a happy and healthy day you wonderful women:)

Yesterday's Food

hot chocolate, muesli

chicken sandwich

meat and vegie dim sims

I'm glad you and your daughter are doing a bit better! RYC, it is kind of odd that hubby brings home swatches and complains about paint colors while I do the painting, eh? Don't worry, I put him to work doing the big inside projects ;) Next up for him (hopefully very soon) is taking down a wall in the kitchen and installing the new double oven I'm going to buy, then rebuilding the wall. I can't wait!

LeakingLife on 07/20/2012:
The weather sounds refreshing--we always want what we don't have--darnit! Enjoy your weekend!

RYC: Thanks for your concern, as always, but those 4hr nights (plus a couple 4.5hr ones) have been few and far between since I renewed counting a few weeks ago. As long as I can feel overall better with little things I'm fine. Don't get me wrong, those nights are frustrating, I just don't want to give them any more power than just that night. And of course keep learning what not to do. I can't trust (even if I emphasize it) that I'll get decaf coffee in a restaurant. I've been burned on that note too much. Starbucks seems to pay attention, but the random restaurant not so much. Oh for the days when I could drink pots of coffee with no problem:-)

selina on 07/20/2012:

Please excuse the mess, the children are making memories. (Love this saying!)

Today I am grateful for: modern medicine, scented candles, cuddling a princess

Hello Lovely Girls, Our last few days of weather have been perfect, sitting around 68 degrees, wonderful! Going for 66 today and it's literally the middle of Winter!!  Sorry I have been away, my daughter has been terribly ill, her lungs are in bad condition, she has had a pulmonary embolism in each lung and star burst embolisms which affected both lungs, plus asthma and has been trying to fight off pneumonia for the past couple of weeks. This is an annual scenario but this year has been particularly bad. Watching your child struggle to breath is no fun believe me:( Three lots of antibiotics later and she can now breath with some ease. I have been on full time nursing/mommy/nanny duty for the past week or so and with my own depression to fight, let's just say it hasn't been easy! On the bright side, which you know I always look for, the weather has helped considerably:)

My eating surprisingly has been fine, I think that I have eaten less than normal because I have been too busy to worry about it or cook for myself!! LOL I am planning on trying to get some naps in and some full night's sleep over the next few days. Of course, making plans round here usually end up in a pile in the corner of the room!!!! LOL The highlight of the last week or so has been that I have been bathing the little girls, giggly little girls with very long hair!! So we have been making a big deal out of how beautiful their hair is. Their mom has already taught them ' beauty equals pain' and it is our mantra when getting out the knots!! Anyhow! I am back, thank you to those of you who were wondering where I had got to, it's nice to be missed! Love you girls:)

Hope you Daughter continues to feel better and is very soon well. As for the children, and the long hair tangles...I have long hair and after I shampoo, I rinse with Pantene Pro V or either something I can find that is similar...it looks like a white cream and comes in a white tube-like bottle...it gets allll the tangles out. Thanks for your comment. Hope you get some rest and relief and also, try to take good care of yourself. :-)

LeakingLife on 07/18/2012:

Hey thanks for the comments! I've sort of been at a low simmer in my thoughts for a few months with not much change. The corner you wrote of, to my mind, started last week. Thanks for noticing!

liza36 on 07/19/2012:
I'm sorry your daughter has been so sick and that you've also been dealing with the depression too. But what I love about you is to look for the bright side, no matter what. It's good your daughter is on the mend, and she is so lucky to have your right there. Take good care of yourself too!

Today I am grateful for: being in control, life's surprises, being steadfast

Hello Lovely Girls, It's freezing this morning, not literally, but it feels like it should be!!! Didn't help that I had to go out to take the angel to pre-school and then to the doctors for my six monthly pick up of my prescriptions for my drug regime. I got home and I am still cold, the heater is pelting out heat but I am chilly:) Now I mention all this in the hope that it helps you appreciate a lovely start to your day before it gets too hot! I am empathising with you like crazy and hoping that it doesn't mean that we have a stinker of a Summer to come!! Yuk!

I am just about to go outside and clean my upstairs windows, because I hate to sweat and it is soo cold there is no chance of that and keeping moving will keep me warm. Not sure if the cat will come out, she has figured out where the warmest spots are and is not moving!! LOL Oh! I forgot to mention the doctor asked me if I had lost weight!!!!! Yay!!!!! He is one of those stick thin runners who never actually says anything about my losing weight (he knows not to!) but gives me the 'evil eye'. So that was another person to notice, that makes me, daughter and doctor. It's working, not dieting is working!!! Who knew!! I hope you all have a lovely day you wonderful group of women:)

What no peaches? We don't get good plums here very often, but I love the yellow flesh ones and not the white ones when we can get them. The corner market has them that are good, but not the groceries! Stun them at the reunion - Hahahahaha! And I am proclaiming a ban on procrastination.

Yeah!! Great job, Moogy! So happy that you found the perfect diet/not that works for you!

How great to have your doctor notice your weight loss. Whatever you are doing is working!

selina on 07/13/2012:
Stay warm and cozy! Great to hear that not dieting is working for you!

sleepyRN on 07/15/2012:
Yea! That's awesome that the doctor noticed. And so sweet that your daughter notices :)

thinkpositive on 07/17/2012:
Hey there, everything ok?

hollybelle on 07/17/2012:
Hey - what thinkpositive said - you OK? I am hoping our internet may be on the fritz or something like that. Thinking of you!

We think too much and feel too little.    Charlie Chaplin

Today I am grateful for: the company of women, love and laughter, foggy mornings

Hello Lovely Girls, We have really dense fog this morning, I can hardly see the roofs of the next street over. We should have a fabulous sunny Winter day later! I had a busy (for me) weekend, the little girls where up and down the stairs all day Saturday, as was their mother, the girls just wanted to spend time with me after their week away. Nice! Lovely day at church yesterday, wonderful group of women to spend time with during the last hour when the men and women separate for their own lessons. Lots of laughing and sharing of similar experiences. Funny how we all 'get' each other:)

I am not sure what this week has in store for me, the children are still on holidays so I dare say I shall be playing chess with the biggest boy, watching movies with the second eldest and playing with the little girls. Well, I know I am going to be occupied in worthwhile activities:) I hope you girls have a happy and healthy week:) Love you girls:)

Yesterday's Food

hot chocolate

chicken sausage, bread

sponge fingers, custard

Have a great day!

I know what you mean about the people at your church. I have that great little group of ladies at my church on Wednesday nights. We just meet for an hour each week, and it's amazing what that time does of me (and they say same also). An hour of safety and kindness works wonders. We pick a book to read and assign a few pages each week and the basis of our talks stems from that, but it's wonderful where how the conversations go.

Have a lovely day!

RYC: very sad. Nothing anyone can do to make it any easier on the distraught parents. :(

LeakingLife on 07/09/2012:
RYC: I'm extending an invitation to you to come and sit around watching the little lamb chomping away while we fatten it up:-) Uhhh, hope there aren't any ethical vegans reading this . . .

Stay warm/cool and everything in between!

Responsibility is the price of freedom.   Elbert Hubbard
Today I am grateful: to have the children home, cuddles, families
Hello Lovely Girls, We are having an overcast day today but still heading for 60ish! Not complaining with what some of you are putting up with!! My heart goes out to anyone who is sweltering in the heat!! Yuk! Yes, the children are home, slightly earlier than planned because son in law is going for a job interview, his business is going OK but not bringing in sufficient for our needs! He is coming back afterwards and putting together the little girls new bunk bed, they are very excited. My daughter is going through a little grieving process because the 'baby' is going into a big bed!! They had a lovely holiday at their grandparents, go-carting and donkey riding seem to have been the highlights!
Food is going well. No problems. I hope you all manage to stay cool or at least manage to get a good night's sleep despite the heat. I find that's the worst of it, just tossing and turning in one's own sweat!! Yuk again! Stay well lovely girls:)
Yesterday's Food
hot chocolate
tandoori chicken, vegie and cashew pizza (an old WW recipe that I remembered, it was yummy!)
trifle and dark chocolate

Em17 on 07/05/2012:
Have a great day!

grannyannie on 07/06/2012:
Glad your 'babies' are home. Have a great day!

RYC: 70 is lovely, normally. The room where we did our class felt like about 80 when we walked in, and 100 when doing the workout! It was a very humid day as well, so when the windows were opened it only let in muggy air. Our trips to Oz (Sydney/Melbourne) are always in Nov/Dec. A nice time to be there.

Umpqua on 07/06/2012:
The girls must be super excited for a bunk bed! My boys will have a bunk bed on vacation and are all revved up for it. Of course, I expect they will end up sleeping together in the top for most of the trip ;)

thenewMLE on 07/06/2012:
I'm excited because after 3 weeks of 98 - 100, our high today is supposed to be 86. Back into the 90's tomorrow and mid 90's by next week. But the best news is that I haven't had night sweats in several months and I didn't even get up to pee last night!! WooHoo - a full nights sleep for the first time in YEARS!! I really think my body is adjusting to the healthy lifestyle and hopefully I will be eternally rewarded with sleep again!!! I remember crying when we moved "the Baby" into her own room and into her own bed - and now she is 22!! Where did the time go? Have a great weekend!

PI on 07/06/2012:


I used to eat when I'm bored hahaha

hollybelle on 07/07/2012:
It's going to be 103 today and 99 tomorrow. BUT Monday supposed to be in the mid 80s again. We need rain. When we travel today I expect to see the effects of the drought all up and down the highway. Is's so sad! I just don't remember it being this hit - this long, ever. Hope you are having a good day. Aw, the baby is growing up...sigh...it happens. My "baby" is talking about getting married!
