This last week.

Posted by Christine13 Jan 27, 2019

Last Sunday the car wouldn't start.  Had new battery put in.  Then Brian's chairlift starting beeping and wouldn't stop. Had it repaired. Then the toilet broke. Had it fixed 2x.  Now I'm locked out of my phone.  Hopefully get that fixed today.

Dad was in ER on Thursday, he thought he was having a heart attack, but they gave him meds.  Got him home and he fell by the car.  Got him up, he was ok, thank god.  Weak, he hasn't been eating.  Finally yesterday he ate an egg and a piece of toast.  Girlfriends having surgery for breast cancer and friend next door hiatal hernia.  She's sick too.

Car goes into shop Tuesday.  I've had quite enough, lol, Calgon take me away!!  Sometimes when it rains it pours.

I am getting though it.  If one more thing breaks here, I'm going to yell and pound a pillow.  NO smoking tho, my nerves are shot!!


Now the positive side of this.

He's starting to eat again.

Increased my anti-depressants today, and will be using anti anxiety meds to help me with my quit, it's helping all ready!!  My Dad goes for his scan on Friday.  Keeping fingers crossed that he will be ok soon.


No craves right now.  I am so calm!!


Love the feeling.




Was a good day!!

Got out this morning in -37 degree weather, to do my groceries, and I had company this afternoon too, an old friend came over for coffee.  He turns 65 tomorrow.  He thinks 70 is old, not so, but his Mom died when  she was 69, and his dad of a heart attack when he was 44 years old.  Anyway, getting to the good stuff, my Dad finally felt better today, and I am so relieved.  It's all up to God at this point.  He's 90, Mom 89.  I offered to pack a bag and go stay with them last night.  Just running scared here. So many people with health issues and I care about them all so much!!!  Nothing I can do but pray to God. I am not smoking over it.  It's taken me all week to be ok.  I'm finally ok.


So I was..........

So I was trying to figure out why I was so off the last couple of days.  Cleaned out some of Brian's drawer's on Monday, it all caught up with me today.  Talked to smoker's help line today too.  Finally grieved today.  Don't feel crazy anymore.  I took extra medication last night too, and had a hot soak in the tub.  I am quit, and am going to keep if.

  Thank's Ellen and Marilyn for talking me through it.  His Birthday was Jan. 25th.  My grandson's is the 24th, he will be 15 years old.  So I have that to celebrate!! xoxo


Prayers Please

Please pray for my 90 yr. old Dad.  He has blocked arteries, and his blood pressure is all over the map.

i'm stressing, after Jan. 24th I will be the only one here to take care of them.  Scan, Feb. 4th or 5th.


Best Vacation Ever!!

Posted by Christine13 Jan 3, 2019

I have today and tomorrow left at my daughter's house here in San Jose, California.  It has been a whirlwind trip, with wine tastings and tours, going to San Francisco, and the rain forest amazing!  A New Year's Eve party with another family.  The best part of it is that I haven't smoked.  I will return home on Saturday.  Weather here has been beautifully sunny and like fall temps back home.  We even went to Saucalito over the golden gate bridge and did a boat tour past Angel Island, and Alcatraz.  We did Fisherman's wharf too, and had lunch at a fancy restaurant on the ocean in Sosalito. (sorry can't spell)  I must be extra careful to keep stacking up days quit when I return to Winnipeg.  I am glad to say I've been too busy to think of smoking.  Love you guys!! xo
