I ordered some collagen powder. I'm adding that to my supplements. I've been reading up on green powders. Boy the good ones are expensive. I'm having problems with leg aches at night so my sleeping is off. I thought it was just from working but it is still going on my eating is better. mom had a bad bout but I think she is ok. For now. 84. Take it one problem at a time. We are at the LH for the weekend. Taking it easy. What is everone up to this weekend?

Here is some mental support/sympathy on the parent issue. It can really take a toll on us, as well.....

So sorry both parents are gone. I know I am lucky to have had mine all these years. They have been wonderful and supporting (and we have farmed together all these years, so we usually saw them daily. But it is heart-wrenching to watch as their enjoyment of life declines. but mine are both still good mentally, so I am lucky. Only physical difficulties.

Thanks for asking, We survived a 70th Wedding anniversary. And my sister visiting for 17 days. Now they are tired and cranky, but doing okay. I would say they are both slipping a little, but both refuse to go to the doctor. And I respect that decision.......

Happy New Year everyone

Deb sounds like you had a good NYE. Net on the boat !!!!

Pat are you staying on the mainland for winter? on losing both your parents.

Misty did you cut your hair?

Karen. Sister for 17 days?? yes we have to respect our parent(s) wishes. They are adults. My mom is pretty good about going to the dr for heart and BP. Other issues not so much

I'm having a lazy day.

Karen~Thx...yes, our parents age & still want their independence even though we see their health deteriorating differently in our eyes?!.

CJ~Hope you & Mom are feeling better? Could you have Fibro? Yes, back here in Cali! It's Sooo Cold!!! Trying to get re-acclimated to this elevation!

Deb~Sounds like fun on that Cruiser Boat & your Sail boat w/the new Net/TV!

Misty~I used to journal lots. Now, just basically, write notes in my personal appt. calendar & write some other quick notes/quotes in a journal.

It's windy & getting to a low of 19 tonight! Was thinking of venturing out tomorrow for a yoga class?! Hmmm...may not? Esp. if I still have this head cold thangy? We'll see? Was a Good NY's Day here.

ok here we go again, almost finished writing and lost my post, I hate that

Had a gret New Years Eve. We went to dinner with another couple. I had baked stuffed haddock with crab meat stuffing so good. Home early, then around 9 I made a cheese and shrimp platter and we watched the New Years events. Yesterday I undecorated the whole house. Funny how big the house looks when it all gone.

Karen your so lucky to still have your parents and they live on there own and pretty healthy. Are you getting rested up? I know your busy tax seasons will be starting up soon.

Cheryl I didn't realize you had fibro. Did you ever try cal-mag for leg pain. DH gets them bad from his meds and it really works great. But it does take awhile to get in your system. Glad your Mom is feeling better, your so lucky that she still lives alone after all she's been through. I lost my Mom 12 years ago at 72 and lost my Dad 2 years ago at 94 and he was healthy just old age. I think I may miss going to my old LH in the summer , not sure I don't miss it in the winter for sure. No didn't cut my hair yet, waiting till spring. I have to have sis take a pic of it long and then I can post it on here. I can't post it with my camera.

Pat what I time to go back to Cali, right in the heart of winter. Why don't you just come back in the spring ? Hope you get rid of that cold fast. I buy this hard covered note books and have been journal a real long time. I like to sit and read some of them.

Deb nice new TV on boat.

Brenda how was your New Years Eve?

Checking in on the new thread.... late in my usual style.
The normal schedule has been off due to ds being out of school and dh having extra time off as well.

I will be working hard at getting back on track this next week. Back to eating right and working out as well. This week I have been focusing on water drinking and acv at least twice a day.

We had an unusually warm weekend, but now the cold weather is back with lots of wind too. We really haven't had any snow yet, and I am just fine with that.

Thanks Karen.
Deb good luck on your mans job

It doesn't taste bad. Like veggies mixed up with a touch of fruit. Maybe a broccoli type with touch of sweet
