Memorial Garden

Posted by srademacher in spacie1's Blog, 25 September 2016 - - - - - - · 5 views

Memorial Garden I am working on putting in a memorial garden for our son, Dan. So far we've planted a few flowering shrubs and some potted flowers and I'm ordering a nice bench and a fountain to place out front. I'll need to have Kelly paint the brick on the front of the house as it is faded, but once that's done we can finish the project. We will try to have a little pa...

Exploring the Possibilities

Posted by Pearls in When your soul dies, 24 September 2016 - - - - - - · 69 views

Leave no stone unturned. There was a time when I was younger and without a physical disability. I always tried new things. Somewhere along the way I started to accept the status quo but if you don't try new things, you stay in the same old place. As long as you are alive you can move forward. You will not always succeed but failure is just another steppin...

Fairies, Aliens and Fantasy Creatures

Posted by HostSue in Sue's Sentiments, 21 September 2016 - - - - - - · 51 views

I was sick all last week with a chest infection. It really took away my energy and I spent a lot of the time watching the Paralympics. Thank goodness this year's programming gave me a lot of options to watch so I saw a variety of sports. It certainly was inspiring to watch people who were struggling to just walk who were running, jumping, rowing, throwing...

Good news / bad news / confused...

Posted by scottm in scottm's Blog, 20 September 2016 - - - - - - · 233 views

I had the evaluation done today to determine my final status for the stem cell clinical trial. Bad news is I was excluded because I am too strong. They said they needed weaker subjects so they could show significant improvement. On the other hand that is good news and shows that my PT is working. When we got home I had an email from the trial doctor recom...

This happened3 weeks ago. Our dentist was on vacation therefore the office could only put the crown back on with temporary glue. The temp job lasted three days. So we had it put on temporarily twice. Finally the dentist comes back and William refuses to go. I had to cancel the appointment. I reschedule for next week. The office wants me to buy temp g...

The Alfa is gone....

Posted by GeorgeLesley in Gizmo, Gadget Guy, 15 September 2016 - - - - - - · 23 views

Yesterday I sold my 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider convertible I once posted pics of here. It just did not fit our new much travel lifestyle. Sitting here in the garage only used a few times a year made no sense, so I sold it. I really did not feel sorrow watching it go down the driveway for the last time. Our plans now include so much travel in our motor home th...

The New Normal

Posted by Punch1021 in Punch1021's Blog, 09 September 2016 - - - - - - · 317 views

It's been some time since I have posted. I kept telling myself to do so because it's therapeutic to write what's going on. I can't bring myself to write in my diary so why not blog here. The past few months have been a blur and now I am settling back into my new normal. Whatever that may be. Nothing feels the same any more. Everything seems so differen...

It's an up hill climb but if I can gain a little bit more in what I'm able to do for myself then I will be OK.....

I realize I'm now 75 and 12 years out from...

One thing is I had a make over and maintained it determined that despite how I feel, I will glam. I a...

Hi all, just a quick status update before I go off on a months holiday. I'm not expecting to have internet for most of it, and where I do it'll be on the smart phone, so not easy to do, I don't expect to be checking in here.

I'm heading off on a 3 week cruise from Sydney to Perth - over the top. Then a week in Perth before I fly home. Jade will be st...

There is never a moment with hanging out with me. I woke up one night I noticed a very delicious looking recipe for sliced cucumbers and I knew exactly what I had to do. While my son and I were watching the Olympics on television I decided it would be the best time to slice my cucumbers. I did not expect is that them to sliced so smoothly then again, that...

Second time around

Posted by Strokewife in Strokewife's Blog, 05 August 2016 - - - - - - · 163 views

The silence of the night surrounds me. While it should be peaceful everything with in it is screaming out in more of a painful cry. Even still I am somber. Tears do not seem to form or fall from my face. I sit and watch my husband take each breath. The room is dark with the exception of the neon glowing lights of the heart monitor. I watch him as his...

There’s a raccoon in a trap!!

On Monday my sister discovered in the corner of our backyard, against the fence, an animal trap with a baby raccoon inside. Yikes! We had no idea where the trap came from. Marge called the town hall who said to call the police. The police sent out an officer. He was able to turn over the trap to see a phone number on the bottom. He asked his dispatcher to...

I Can Read!

Posted by CarolR in Carol's Blog, 12 July 2016 - - - - - - · 146 views

I Can Read!

Reading has always been a huge part of my life. I read for relaxation, entertainment, knowledge or escape. Books have taken me to faraway places or distant times or just explored ideas I would not have otherwise considered. I was the kid under the covers with a book and a flashlight. School reading lists weren’t used just to choose a book f...

4th of July

Posted by ruthwilliam in ruthwilliam's Blog, 04 July 2016 - - - - - - · 113 views

Today is the 4th of July. I was going to take William to the pool. But, I am having second thoughts about that. It is very early in the morning 5AM. Yes, I am still waking up early. William has been acting up at the pool. I don't think that I want to put up with that today. I have explained to him that I do water therapy for him for his benefit and...

Pizza day.....

Posted by Mitch04 in Mitch's Blog, 28 June 2016 - - - - - - · 659 views

It's the second to last day of my pain course.....and the class is making and cooking pizzas. What this has to do with my pain confounds me. But I am making one, anyway. Instead of a tomato base, as everyone else is making, I have decided on olive oil and garlic...just to be different.

As the pizzas bake in the ovens, the OT is questioning us in our p...
