Finally subsiding

Happy Hump Day everyone!!!!

Finally, my headache is subsiding……it is starting to lessen, I can actually touch my hair. I am still not liking my hair style yet. (I think it is still in shock and has a mind of its own).
Today is a miserable day, the weather is cold and rainy……a definitely a stay in bed, cuddle under the blankets and just sleep type of day. Nothing new, pretty quiet and boring…….non-eventful, the only thing happening is Dan and I are going out to Nagoya for dinner with friends…….Looking forward to having Sushi for dinner. I could eat sushi every day of the week…..I can not wait, I am already hungry.
After dinner I will make food for tomorrow and then do my exercises……..I am happy got my morning workout in.
Well, I am bored……and have nothing really to say of importance, so I am going to say bye for now,,,,,,talk to you tomorrow.

Monday Blues!

Just a gray and dreary day. It seems like the sun has been on vacation. I woke this morning with the same headache that I had since Friday……it seems to be getting worse as the day goes on…..to the point it is making my stomach sick and I am having a hard time staying focused…….I just feel so scattered.

Have to go to my neighbor’s wake……not looking forward to going……I am so sad to think she is gone,,,,,I am going to miss seeing her smiling face. She was a tough woman, such an inspiration for me……she was always on the go, no matter how sick she was or what ever life dealt her. Just an amazing lady, who I will definitely miss.

I definitely have the Monday blues……I feel very sad and depressed today….I don’t know why and cannot shake it. I did not get to exercise this morning….maybe that is it. I find that when I start the day off with my exercises…..I am in a much better mood…..I feel like have accomplished something.

I trying to think what I am going to make for dinner……Dan has a planning board meeting….so it has to be quick and easy. It is going to be a long meeting, as per Dan…….so I will have plenty of time to do my exercise and attempt to do some things around the house, to fill my time.

I spoke to my mom, as I usually do…..(I call her everyday), I wish they did not live so far away…..I miss them. Just looked out the window…..Surprise, Surprise….the sun is out…..Yes,…..the day can get better….Now if I could get rid of the headache, the day would be so much better…..can only hope.

I forgot to mentioned how this weekend went……….Dinner Saturday evening was very nice……great conversation, great couple and good food…..I had a really nice time. Sunday brunch with Jenny in Katonah was fun……looked in some shops and hung out sweet shop and talked afterwards……all together a nice time!!!!!!

TGIF

I cannot believe it is Friday….where did the week go. Busy day, alot to do and try to get done. I feel some acoomplishment….I worked out (inceased the amount of sit-ups to 375), did 20 minutes on the glider, made breakfast, cleaned up, vaccumed and straighten up the whole house……all by 8:30 this morning ……..I am on a roll, but already exhausted. Picked up a cake to bring to office for Danny K., it is his Birthday!!!!!! Happy Birthday Danny!, he is such a nice man…..he is like me and has to watch his sugar and loves chocolate……..he is my office buddy,he always make me laugh.

Trying to visit my sister Kathleen in the hospital…….waiting for Dan to get free with the office issues and meetings so we can go after work…….and get back in time for our dinner reservations at Varka in Ramsey…….( I hate depending on Dan to drive me places……I miss being able to drive and go places on my own…..Dan is really good about taking me where I want, but he has a job and responsibilites and it is not easy. I hate it and always feel like a tremendous burden….it truly sucks, I miss my independence). Made dinner plans for next Saturday
I am looking forward to dinner at Varka’s with David and Maria………Grilled Octupus!!!! OMG it is so good,,,,,,,,cannot wait….my mouth is already watering. After dinner, I am going to try to squeeze in food shopping……prepare meals for tomorrow, and exercise off dinner. I want to do another 150 and I will have done a total of 500. Now I just hope I can keep increasing the amount and I will see the results….I want to be lean and mean…..with a kick ass bod for the summer…..no excuses I am determined.

Thursday Already

I woke this morning with such a horrible head and stomach ache,,,,,carrying over from last night. I hope that it gets better, I have alot of things I want to do.......add an extra 100 sit ups and exercise longer, since I will not be able to do my night time work-out, since tonight Dan gets appointed and the Mayor get sworn in at town hall. Should be nice.....seeing our friends in town and the campaign committee.

I am so happy for Aurora.....the proud grandmother to baby boy........Vance Rueanne........I saw pictures on facebook.....he is so cute.
She is going to be a great grandmother.....she has been waiting for this moment.......she is all smiles.

Got rid of the rest of cookies...had Dan bring them to office.

I want to make a Donation to the family who lost their home to a fire in town yesterday.......they lost everything.......it brings back memories of the most horrible times of our lives in January 2,2001.....the same exact day (how scary)...we lost everything except the clothes on our back.......I know what they are feeling.........I feel just so bad.......Thank god no one got hurt. This is when I wish I had alot of money.......to help those in need.

Ran errands with Dan......took a ride with him to pick-up checks for the office...Ridgewood and then Tenafly.......I hate the ride to Tenafly.....seems like an eternity to get there....no direct route.....And off course to top it off......had to have a sugar low......more stress. Stopped to get a Dunkin donuts coolata drink....I am starting to hate them......better than drinking 2 glucose drinks.
It is sad that I am beginning to hate something I really liked and enjoyed. Now my stomach is really, really killing me......this just sucks.

Have to race home and make dinner and to be ready to go to town hall........what am I going to make for dinner.......Just want to get home.......it is going to be a long nite.....and still have to prepare meals for tomorrow, etc......just feel like I got nothing done....and why? Because I didn't....I feel like a waste product with a bad belly and head......just a real sucky day!!!!!!

I Am Back And Making A New Year’s Resolution

Yes I am back!!!!!!
I will be writing again, I promise. I will try to fill you in and you bring you up to date on what has happened in the past few months (alot has happened), and there has been alot of changes in my life, except for my health, which is a constant battle.
Other resolutions I am determined to keep and make happen:
Lost weight and get into shape….I want a kick ass body for pool season this summer…..this is absolute must.
Follow thru with some ideas I have…….sewing and making some clothes, etc…….
Making myself happy….doing things that make me feel good and have self worth
And last not but no least…..most important…..enjoying my life with my loving husband, family, and friends…..I am not going to let my health and pain stand in the way of me feeling happy.

so on that note…..I want to say good-bye to 2012…..and say thank you to my husband/soulmate for getting me thru 2012. I am looking forward to our journey in 2013 ……You are the best!!!! I love you.

And to all my friends and family……a Happy and Healthy 2013.

Love always
Kris

Easter Sunday

I am sure glad the Easter Bunny did not come to my house last night…. He would have been in for a big surprise.   Apparently I had a very bad sugar low and seizure.   I would not drink the glucose shots for Dan and I was falling all over the  place.   This morning I woke with  a terrible head and stomach ache and my legs are so sore to stand up.       Dan said I kept saying my legs were missing during the seizure……..All I know is, god they hurt, and  I am glad I do not have to let on to anyone in the family how bad I feel…….I know Dan knows because he was there, but how I really feel after this low, worse than I have ever felt.  So when he said lets go for a walk, I wanted to just die, but I did not  want to mess up his day, (god only knows I did the nite before), so I put my sneakers on  and went for an 1.5 hour   walk with him.  I made it  – even though it was killing me inside, I would not let him know…..and I am glad, I at least overcame and accomplished something.

It is very quite here, Dan is  watching basketball, and I am going to make dinner – a salad.  That was what he wanted. Dan  is truly a great guy, I just wish he did not have to suffer thru this with me.  I made my calls to my family, to wish everyone a good day……I miss them, but I just am not into talking with people and pretending that everything is great when it is really, really, bad.  And no relief insight.

After dinner, I plan on   just sitting in front of the TV after I work out…..and just veg.  I need to get a good night sleep without any problems, I have a big day  tomorrow – Dan and I have to pick up his parents in Toms River, drive them to Wayne – their friends funeral, and then drive them   back to Toms  River and then finally come home.  God help me  not have any problems.

Totally Weird

Totally weird start to the day.  Woke up this morning feeling really weird, my stomach was more upset than usual and I just felt shaky.  I thought it would past, so I decided to skip my  exercise routine (do it later today) and got ready to run  around with  Dan on appointments and errands ;  the next thing I remember is Dan making me drink glucose shots.  I apparently had a bad sugar low - it was only 10:20 in the morning.   I just don’t get it.  I don’t remember anything leading up to the low or anything much after.   So of course this changed my plans for the day, because now I am feeling shitty  and worse than before.  

Finally, after re-grouping, I got myself together, finished getting dressed and ready to go out with Dan (that man is a saint)…..we were able to accomplish all the things we needed to get done (despite the  fact that my head still feels like it is going to explode and I just feel so unsure of things, my thoughts and speaking – so I apologize if my thoughts are scattered).  I managed to work out on my ball…..only did half the sit-ups…better than nothing.  I can’t wait to go to bed and end this day.

The Small Things That Matter

Had a nice relaxing evening so far……made dinner for Dan and my sister Erika came over to just hang out with us (chicken with  rice and salad)    We then all watched the movie  on cable “The Hangover”  it is a great movie, Dan and I saw it before, Erika never did……it was fun,  had us laughing from the beginnning to end…..Bradley Cooper is just eye candy… yummy for the eyes…….It was a real nice evening….I had a sugar low (caught before my sister got to the house) but it was a pleasure after last night…..I accomplished  watching the whole movie without a problem and remembering what I saw is a good thing….now I hope to get thru the night into the morning….. busy day ahead.  Got all the winter clothes out of the drawers and closets ….yes, I am on a role, now to pack them away and put summer out.  Good night I hope!

Holy Crap – Major Melt Down

I woke this morning not knowing where I was or how I got to bed, the last thing I remember was going for a walk with Dan.  I had a real bad sugar low, then seizure and Dan manage to stabilize me.   So when I got home from my walk  I went to write  on my blog,  I realize that I definitely had a problem, as my last entry shows……Holy Crap – I am so embarrassed, not only do I not remember the whole evening from the walk on, my brain had a major melt down, as you can see on my last entry.  I don’t remember writing, and my typing/spelling  as well as thought process was shot…..Don’t ask me what I was trying to say.  

This is why the  new sensor they came out with  is so important……it would detect a pattern in  my sugar moving in the wrong direction up to 45 min. in advance of me having a problem and set an alarm off so I could get sugar into me and turn pump off…….now I don’t even feel it coming on ( I use to)……and if I do it is to late cause I can’t express it.  I feel so stupid and mad writing the way I did last night on here…….All I can say is I am sorry.  I should just paste  a sign on my back “I am sorry in advance”.

Well, I can not change things…..just move on and hope another episode does not take place today and I get a days break. It’s the back to back one that really do damage to my brain. Dan is even more upset then me because he feels bad when he can’t catch it in time. Now he is telling me that he is going to get that sensor one way or another in the next month or so. I reminded him that the sensor is a one time fee  and the supplies are what will just be another monthly bill we don’t need or can afford.  Well….. I have  a lot to do, weekend cleaning and chores, change over clothes from winter to summer (how I hate that job), run errands with Dan,  and try to keep a smile my on face,  when all I want to do is cry with my head pounding ( I will have that for the next few days after a seizure).  Oh well, better get started. One of our friends told Dan and I about a neighbor that killed herself the other day by sitting in the car with it running and the garage door shut. Dan felt so bad for the woman that she had no other choice but to do that…….I felt good for the woman because I know how it feels to not want to be around any longer and be a financial burden on my family.  Why should Dan loss everything  he worked so hard for in life and have suck a stress daily life? I was jealous of the woman who ended it all.
