    Hello Dahlings

    Weather: still too cold (kitty, I know, I'm a wimp)

    Sleep: not bad and not good

    Mood: ok-ish

    Plans: Right now I'm watching a stock market program on tv. I watch it every morning and I'm still not rich. I think I have a cold but I can't be sure because yesterday I inhaled a mouth full of coffee and when I took a shower the water got stuck in my ear. My ear is still clogged with water and now my lungs feel like I have a chest cold. *shrug* Also I will watch Ghost Hunters

    Have a good day. muahs

    p.s. here is proof that my mind is gone. Yesterday I get a phone call to remind me that I have an apt. I told the lady that I hadn't gotten the blood test done yet. She says "This is your dentist office, I don't think you need a blood test".

    Morning all...

    Weather: Still unseasonably warm, but we're due to get that cold spell and drop from 80 to freezing. No wonder I can't stay healthy

    Sleep: Restless once I got there..prolly going back to bed in a few

    Mood: Icky. Feeling sick and my arm is in a lot of pain.

    Plans: I got up. (LOL) Might dress enough to walk to the corner and get a bottle of coke to help clear some of the drainage down my throat. Nap. Make dinner. Watch American Idol maybe. And I have to call my ortho back about something regarding the surgery.

    Hello everyone.

    Weather: Partly sunny and 37 degrees. Not bad for January in WNY.

    Sleep: Awake until 4:00 am, then slept until noon.

    Mood: Pretty good.

    Plans: Right now relaxing with my wonderful wife watching "Bones" on Netflix via our Wii. Love this show. Plan to do some more cleaning in our kitchen today. My body has been cooperating the past day or so and allowing me to be a bit more active.

    Have a blessed and wonderful Wednesday, friends.

    Weather - 40 ish

    Sleep -sort of restless

    Mood - ish

    Plans - went to see the hemotologist this afternoon - went to see him about blood/iron anemia - internal bleeding was ruled out. Chances are the cause of the problem is that I haven't been doing good about not eating gluten (I have Celiac Disease) and so therefor, my small intestines aren't able to absorb iron very well. Oooops, looks like I got called out on my "cheating" re gluten! He wants to check my blood in 4 months and go over results. If it's worse, then wants to give me iron intraveniously - but will cross the road when we get there.

    Top of the evening to you all!

    Today was a lovely, warm, day outside, very nice weather, though by now I'm sure it's freezing again, it's been uncommonly cold around here...

    I actually slept last night! Not sure how many hours but more than a couple and I was pretty happy about that.

    Mood is okish, feel kind of out of it lately

    Plans: go to bed! day's pretty much done, may have some cake and tea 1st though

    Nitey-night everyone, have a good one!

    Good evening my friends!

    Weather: Lovely, in the 60's.

    Sleep: Pretty good, strange dreams.

    Mood: Easily irritated. My back hurts and I want to get so much done I get frustrated. My husband asks me a lot of questions about paint for the house, and I get tired of answering.

    Plans: Got to Home Depot as scheduled. I need to get things organized in my room so it can be painted. When I was in the hospital, my husband cleared things out or the bedroom where the computer is and stacked things in our room to sort out. Tomorrow I have 2 therapy appts, but I know I will feel better after them.

    Hugs to everyone, extra hugs to those who need them.

    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
