I am so happy today as my first set of school books showed up today . I have some introductory stuff I will read this evening and then jump right in tomorrow. I've made a pretty good schedule so I have time for Care2, the gym, my appointments, and studies.
It is very hot here today (105) and to be hotter tomorrow I think I'll head to the beach for a little bit tomorrow, get a bit of a tan and enjoy the ocean water. I am so glad to be living 3 miles from the beach
I hope you all are doing well and enjoying peace & happiness! My thoughts & prayers are with you all.
Good Morning All ~
I had a weird sleep pattern last night...I napped from 9pm to 12am, watched tv from 12am to 2am, then slept from 2am to 6pm. I went to the Annual Leo Party in my old neighborhood (basically a neighborhood cookout) yesterday and it must have wiped me out. I was tired to start with, but it is a nice time and many folks I only see at this party every year, kind of a town reunion.
It is already 78 degrees at 8am and we're expected to go to 90-95 today (Judi ~ can you send me some rain water and cooler temps please...lol).
As most of you know I am currently renting a room in a house with two other roommates. It is a very nice size home and has a great sized backyard. My roommates are males and do not care diddly about the yard. The landlord has someone come and mow the front yard, but it is our responsibility to do the back. I have done it a few times, but it is so grown over now and I just cannot do it in this heat. Anyhow, I have gotten some hanging and potted plants for the front patio and I have planted some flowers around a small tree. While tending to my plants, I found some hidden treasures in a few scattered mini rose bushes. I have managed to get them back to life and they are very pretty.
Wow, look at me going on this morning...LOL I have some things to go thru in the indoor storage closet today and then I am very ready to begin my college classes. My books did not show up yesterday, so they ought to be here tomorrow.
Anyhow, I need to get outside and water the plants prior to the heavy heat setting in. I hope everyone is doing well.
I did better this morning and slept until 6am. Yesterday I met with the trainer at the gym for an orientation. It was great because he not only showed me all the machine, but recommended a workout plan and told me what is good and what is not good for my physical conditions. So, I am on a simple, not-as-strenuous fat-burning workout. It is nice to have a place with air conditioning to work out in as I cannot stand these hot temps outside.
The next 3 days we are under heat advisory and 100 or more, so I will be inside. I am hoping my study books show up today so I can get on it
I've been us since 4am, uggh...there is definately a nap in my near future (lol)
I have an orientation at Planet Fitness, the gym I joined yesterday, this morning. I hoing some light exercise will help with my Fibro and other conditions. My membership also includes tanning and a massage chair (my favorite part).
I have just a little more organizing to do today and then I plan on enjoying a long relaxing weekend.
I have much to do today. Through the night, my kitties messed up everything on my desk in my bedroom, so I need to re-organize and do things a bit different. I can't seem to keep them off it.
I also have a doctor's appointment and then I have to go for my xrays (both hips, both knees and back/spine). I am a bit nervous, but looking forward to finally finding out what my issues are more in depth.
I hope all have a wonderful Tuesday filled with Peace & Happiness.
Good Evening ~
I signed up for my correspondence college today and I am so exccited to get my books next week. I can't wait to start.
It turns out I will not be able to move, so I'll just stick it out here. Brian is keeping the air conditioning on more now so things are looking up.
My kitties are great for my mental health and loneliness. I enjoy playing with them and watching them play amongst themselves.
I hope everyone has a great evening. I am just straightening out my desk area in preparation of my classes beginning and watching NCIS.
Hello C.C. - Your kitties are so cute! Good Luck to you.

I have much to do today, including signing up for my correspondence college classes ( a bit nervous, but excited!). We're still cloudy this morning, rained late yesterday (much needed). My kittens are jumping & playing this morning, as they usually do after breakfast...they r so cute
I hope yall' have a great beginning to the week.
I am beginning correspondence college courses week after next and am hoping that will keep my mind off of things (my pain). I also am going to start learning American Sign Language (my great nephew who is 5 is learning due to having a set of deaf grandparents) so I may help him learn...so far, he's been teaching me
I am in a bit of a bad situation where I am living right now. The gentleman who rents a room out to me and another guy has been turning off the air (coincedently since he stopped working FT). We live in North Carolina and it is in the low 90's currently and will only get hotter this month. The other roommate and myself found out that the electric is scheduled to be turned off this coming Tuesday. So...Jonathon and I are looking to find a place to rent together. I will be here the best I can, but of course, finding another place to live takes precedence.
I wish you all a wonderful Saturday!
Having a busy day preparing for my studies. I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday!
Helo Friends ~
I have just returned from my neice's house. It was a nice vacation visiting with the family. It was especially nice to spend time with my 2 nephews (age 5yrs and 5 mo).
I will be going out to my neice's about once a month now to kinda give her a break and let her and her husband go out and spend time together. I am looking forward to this very much.
On my return I had all the info. I had requested from correspondence schools, so I'm going to relax and review the info. to decide which program is for me. I will begin studies next week.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and a good week ahead. I will be back more tomorrow
...itz cool to be back in care2 hun, big bubbles from the deep mmmuaaahhh!!!
Found this quote and just had to share it with you all.
After a visit to the beach, it's hard to believe that we live in a material world. ~Pam Shaw
Hope you have a fabulous weekend when it comes.
Greetings All ~
I will be away from Friday the 24th thru Monday the 27th on a mimi-vacation. We generally go to Cape Hatteras each year to meet one of my sisters and her family for a Family Reunion, but neither of us could really afford it this year. We will be going out to Cary, near Raleigh, to my neice's house. My sister & brother-in-law will bring their RV down from N.J. and I will meet them there for a long weekend.
I am wishing you all a lovely weekend filled with peace & relaxation. I will miss you all.
Spent the weekend at the Beach, it was awesome. Had some fun both in and out the water. My son had a blast. Car is full of sand now though lol.
I cannot write much right now, but wanted to quick stop by. My pain medication for my Fibro, Arthritis, Neuropathy and Burrcitis has been doubled so I a bit 'loopey'.
I hope everyone is having a blessed day and enjoying peace.
Greetings Friends ~
I just wanted to stop in quickly to say 'hi'. i cannot be up much at the computer right now. Yesterday I began having painful spasms in my back and today spasms and barely able to move back. We are having trouble with our air conditioner until my roommate comes home later. I am having to spend most of my time on a high-heat pad w/ no air...not exactly comfortable. It is 84 now, creeping up to 89 today.
My thoughts & prayers are with you all for a Peaceful Sunday.
Good Morning All ~
It appears (for now) most of my glitches with Care2 are gone. I cannot change color of font, but, can now change the size. Personal Messaging is running smoothly and my posts seem to going thru in groups...oops, I shouldn't have said anything
Anyhow, I am hoping to get the starter fixed in my car today...and then probably just drieve to the beach...I have missed the beach while my car has been out-of-commission. Of course, it's been raining for a few days and I did get much done inside that needed to be done.
I continue to prepare for my vacation to Hatteras Island (July 28) and my return back to college (I'm very excited about that). My pain is being managed ok...of course, it can always be better, but, i suppose I have become so accustom to daily chronic pain, even a 'little' relief is something good. 100% relief is still the goal!
I am wishing you all a lovely day with peace & joy!
Peace & Prayers, C.C.
Greetings to All ~
I am still in lots of pain, but trying to get on more of a schedule to attend to groups. Thank you all for bearing with me.
I hope all are well and have a wonderful week ahead
C.C. Sounds like you are hard at it. Just don't get to tired and have a set back. I know how that can be. have a great day...Hugs,Jaylena
I way over-did it on the computer yesterday and still have some more college research to do today, but I will be back in when I can. Wishing you all a blessed day!
Glad to hear you are feeling better C.C., enjoy the beach today.
I am feeling a bit better today...I think I'll go to the beach in a few hours. Enjoy your day!
C.C. It is wonderful all the great news coming your way. I am so happy to hear your med's are working. I know it is important to feel good in your daily life. You must be excited about all the things going on in your life. I am very happy for you and especially about your son. Enjoy your weekend...Love and hugs,Jaylena
Hi CC! I'm glad your visit went well with your son. Is he close to you (location?) I'm still on vacation here in Maryland but I just couldn't stay away from Care2- lol!! Going back to school sounds great and I hope I will get to that myself very soon. Are you going to take BOTH the volunteer positions? I think it's great but don't over-extend yourself!
I'll be away from the computer after today until hopefully Monday so I will chat with all of you then! Have a great weekend!
Hi Everyone...I just got back from seeing my son and it was a great visit. He is doing very well
I, myself, am doing better. The medicine for my chest & sinus infection is kicking in...and I back on my regular meds for pain.
I'm gonna spend some time laying in the sun tomorrow (early as it is 100 here now)...then I'll be online tending to groups. I will start doing some home-study soon, preparing to go back to college in August, so I'm working on managing my time for everything.
I have been asked to do two volunteer positions...1st being the advocate for my county for the cancer foundation...2nd a coordinator for the American Red Cross. I am looking forward todoing some volunteering now that my pain is managed a bit better.
