WOE: My way mixing it low carb
Took DH to the ER tonight. He started complaining about his L arm being numb and achy. They admitted him about 2:30 am. Doing a stroke work up. Already had a CT scan. Going to an MRI and carotid ultrasound. Had EKG. He is on telemetry. I'm staying at my brothers in town. Not able to sleep yet. Dr said she may be being overly cautious but would rather err on the side of caution.

Joined the y this morning
stopped into the soup and sand cafe that was hiring when we were in Calgary..manager took a few minutes to chat and wants my resume tomorrow
Meeting her at 2pm........

so tomorrow is class and then off to the ei office to do my resume
parking is a gong show down town so my guy is going to swing by and pick me up and take me back into the city

i have a 2 hour parking pass to the ymca and then i will move my car down to Beacon park for 2.5 hour parking so i can work at the ei office...flipping crazy

the job will start in Sept when the morning girl goes back to school
i can ride in with my man..we would both start at 7am but i would be off at 1:30
gives me time to go to the y and wait for him to be off at 3

wow i sure hope it all works out for me...........fingers crossed

the cafe works with the homeless and a church right down the road and they work with aid"s

i think it would be a very rewarding job

Cheryl how is your hubby ?
Misty where the heck are you friend??

I see we have a few gang members missing

Living in one place for years, and then moving.....might be much tougher than if one has not got years of accumulation to go through

I am thinking my sympathies go out to Pat on the moving.........

THANKS KAREN!
You are Soooo Right! I've been here for 32yrs & DH 42yrs!! We have Donated & given away SOOO Much STUFF!!

I Finally finished packing up the guest room yesterday! Forgot how heavy packed up Photo Alum Boxes can be!
Going to start packing & purging the China Hutch today. It's Stuffed to the Gills!:

Deb~Good luck on getting the Job. It does sound rewarding to help others in that way. So sorry about the Parking Situation! Looks like you guys have a good plan to solve the situation.

Stopping by to check in before Miss Deb comes hunting me down...
I feel like my life is just out of control, diet, time and everything else. My ds is going back to school on Wed (first year of high schoool, yikes!). Also he is in marching band so they have been meeting for practice at 6 am the past two weeks. So I am doing an awful lot of dropping off and picking up.
I am watching gd 3 days a week and work one day a week.

My Dad (age 81) is going to be having a heart valve replacement in the next few weeks so we are getting a lot of pre op tests done. Heart cath will be this next Tuesday. He is planning a 60 day cruise for next year...lol

Cheryl- I hope your dh is doing good and the blood thinners are helping.

Pat- Moving is tough stuff, exhausting to be sure. But it is nice when its all done and you settle in the new place.

Deb- the new job sounds good! I am going to be trying to hit the gym hard starting in September... this month has been a wash for me as far as working out and diet.

Karen- I hope all is well with you. I have thought about getting one of the ice machines too... my main worry is counter space. I have so many things on the counters already, but I think it would be worth it.

Rondakay- Welcome to our group

WOE: My way mixing it low carb
Relaxing at the LH. We had a good time at Ok City. We were rained out at the watermelon festival after about 5 minutes. We thought we had a 2 hour interval between flooding rains, but it came in fast. We did get DH his black diamond watermelon so mission accomplished. Had to go shopping to get out of the rain DH had his check up and everything looks good. Continue the blood thinners. I still hurt so I'm taking Arthritis Tylenol routinely now. Light exercise 1 x a week to try and sneak up on my body Mom just seems to be getting weaker. I am going to kick back for the weekend

Pat how is the moving going? One good thing about moving often is you get rid of stuff regularly. you have a huge job and I hope you are nearing the end. I don't look forward to our next move. Getting harder as we get older. Maybe I need to do a declutter and stay ahead

Karen enjoying those motorcycle rides? How are the parents? Didn't you have a new foal?

V busy as usual. for Dads heart surgery.

Deb enjoy that new boat!
