We got a reminder to practice fire and co safety.

At 1am I was awake to let the dog out. Smelled onions, I sauté onions yesterday. I when back to bed was woken up sometime during 4 am hour. To a screaming alarm ADT called said CO alarm is going off evacuate the house. Our house was filled with natural gas. We are all ok.

We were sloppy about waiting till the battery indicator went off before replacing. I was told to do it at time change. So spring head is coming up.
We figured out we need to practice a plan.

Prayers needed

My daughter impulsively grabbed scissors and tried to kill herself. She has been so happy with her fiancé, seeing a future. Sober from cutting for quiet awhile, she asked me not to keep track. She has been on a psych hold. Our whole family in disarray. My breeder held my new service dog. While she was in the hospital I slept walked fell and wedged myself. We had to call first aid.

The good of it is the first time she hasn’t blamed someone else.

I am deeply sorry for missing the card exchange.

My daughter is home. Starting a day program. A dear friend came in to stay with her while her fiancée works so I left to get my new service dog. My service dog allows me safety during the night as I aspirate and many other things.

Thank you all for your kindness.

Getting a new service dog this week.

My Malibu died. I got Franny, he is sweet but after neutering he is a chicken. A wreck. We are keeping him. I am getting one of Malibu’s girl’s. She is silver. Crossed fingers she works out. I am praying Fran man doesn’t tell her I am a easy target.

Grocery prices

I have been juggling stores to get the best prices on groceries.

My grocery bill has increased more then 50%. The fact my husband is working from home is not a factor. I packed his lunch.

I have found nutritional yeast is 6.89 at the grocery stores. Trader Joe’s is 2.99. We buy Fairlife milk for my daughter. I go to Warehouse store, it is 75 cents less a bottle. Buying my dry goods flour etc at Aldi is a vast difference.

I have been using dry legumes such as chick peas, to make our plant based diet. Daughter is eating meat.

Anyone else have tricks?

Dog advice

After losing my service dog last June, my breeder gave me a male. She had tested him out. He was not neutered, I wanted it done at my vet. He bonded quickly to me. However after being neutered he became more and more skittish. He heard a nail gun in Dec and became frightened. He was raised around hunters who did target practice, so he was use to shot guns. We are now at the point he will not go pee in my house has pooped 2 times in the house since October.

The problem is he won’t go out till it’s dark. Tonight we took him out and the women next door were talking he hightailed it back inside. Finally at 1030pm they went inside and I could take him outside. He off leash walks perfectly and has great I get back up at 500am, and take him again. Our fence is not up yet so we walk him. I take my “daughter’s” dog walking about 4 times a day. She decided she couldn’t sleep with him as he keeps her cats up. He is super bonded to My Vampire Dog. Let’s face it her golden retriever is mine as well. I bought him, pay his pet insurance, his training food and care.

I read don’t force them out. After the big fright I lured him out with treats. Anyone else ever have a vampire dog? Or ideas?

My Daughter got engaged

Last week my daughter’s boyfriend came to my husband and I and asked for her hand in marriage. After some discussion, mainly about her chronic illness, we gave our blessing.

He told us he was proposing at Disney, in October.

They went to the mall and came home engaged. She was very excited! We were happy for them both.. She showed me her ring it is beautiful. I laughed and said that is a Princess Diana ring, it is a oval sapphire just like Diana’s. It was all very sweet.

She immediately called her Grandpa. We oddly enough had a discussion about her boyfriend yesterday. My husband and I genuinely like him.

Plans for the wedding are for next year.

10 years today since Dday

I only know it has been 10 years as it was the Weds, before Memorial Day. It hasn’t been a blip on my radar. What a difference hard work and time makes.

I love him to bits, he continues to see his IC weekly. Now it centers around his and our child’s relationship. I seen growth in both of us. I remember for a long time everything irritated me. Now not so much. He has been working home for 15 months. We actually enjoy it. When he gets off work. He walks the dog. Have dinner, spend time reading or playing games, some tv. We walk our dogs of 11pm or 12 am.

We take a minute if there is a problem and then discuss it.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary, recently. I didn’t think we would make it, at times. We did!

I don’t think we would have if it weren’t for SI.

I got the shot, afraid to go out. Anyone Else?

I had the J&J shot in the ER, beginning of March. I have been nowhere. Tonight we were to go out to dinner. They got there 2 Nd shot sat. I literally started throwing up, with which continued for 4 hours. It was my daughter’s birthday.

I didn’t get that I was undone about sitting inside a restaurant. My thoughts started racing, that developed into a full panic attack. I used my self care tools. Didn’t work. I ended up taking Zofram, then reglan.

Is anyone else afraid?

Advice mirowave vs 4 in 1 micro

My mircowave needs to be replaced. I am torn between a regular mircowave and a 4 in 1. The 4 in 1 sounds nifty with, mirco, airfryer, convection and broiler.

Warning if you lose weight do this.

I have lost 50 lbs since my medications were prescribed. Turns out my fall on sat was the result of pre fainting. I whacked my head, however my blood pressure was 85/ 48 at the lowest. It continued to hover there till Tuesday night. They stopped 3 of my meds in the hospital.

In talking to my doctors they didn’t realize the dosages had not been changed since I lost 50lbs. They took me off my twice a day blood pressure pill. Then added back my heart pill.

So check with your doctor if you lose weight about dosages.
