I just had some forms emailed to me to fill out for my new job selling life ins. So looks like things are moving forward with me starting a new job and career. Still have to get info on where and how to sign up for classes and testing for the license to really be a part of the company. But looks like it is happening.

Another fairly active day. I am feeling well except for a headache. Plan to get a haircut tomorrow.

Janette - I am so sorry that your friend was in that pile up. Happy that you are going to go to get your insurance license. You will have a good job.

Well my friend got into a 4 car pile up on the way to met me for our meeting for the job. But I still got to met with all her associates and learn more about the job. And they want me, so now it is just a matter of setting up a class and test to get my Life Ins License. If I get that, then I am set to work for them. If I don't pass then I have to try to take the test again before I can work with them. So now I am just waiting for another meeting some time next week to discuss getting signed up for the class and test.

This morning I went to get a maintenance job done on the car, that was under warranty. Afterwards, headed to the beach to take a long walk with hubby. It has been a good morning. I need to do some laundry this afternoon and some other little tasks.

Janette - fantastic! I hope that things work out exactly the way you want. Working, even part time, will be great for you. Hope your doctor appt went well.

I have a dr appt tomorrow, first in a several months. Then tomorrow night I am having dinner with an old work acquaintance to learn more about the company she works for in the financial business. She has invited me to an open house at the company she works for to see if I would like to go into that line of work with her. So I might be going into the life ins and other financial business with her. I know her from my last job, my old boss went into business with her company on the side of her tax practice. So I will get to hobnob with my old boss and a lot of old friends that I met through these two ladies. So excited about that. It won't be a 9 to 5 type job with steady paycheck. But it would be some thing to do in my spare time at first while I am learning the ropes, and probably looking for part time job to go with it. But it would get me back out in the work force. Help me to build my confidence back up, and look good on a resume instead of showing that I have done basically nothing since April of 2012. I will have to study and pass a test to get and keep a new type of license before I can make any money at it. But I will have a great team of people I already know pulling for me and trying to help me along the way. So wish me luck.

Post Op day 3 has kicked in full swing. Knee is really hurting today and tighter than a drum. I am consoled in knowing it's all uphill from here. My husband is stressed to the max. The day after my surgery his Mom called and said she had fallen. They ended up admitting her in the hospital with what they believe is the stomach flu. They are having the Oncologist check on her to be sure her Cancer hasn't mestasised and causing the illness. She was severely dehydrated from not eating or drinking for over a week. My Dad got to come visit and baby sit me while Andy took care of her. I know he is worried sick about her and about leaving me alone at the same time, needless to say when he is stressed, I get stressed. Please keep Mildred in your prayers as she is very sick.

I hope your weekend will be filled with sunshine and laughter. Take care.

Surgery went well. Doctor said the tear was. Much larger than he had expected but repairable. Dealing with headache, chattery teeth etc from anesthia. Of course knee hurting as well but icing often. This is the first day towards healing and walking again!

Take care Janette and Linda.

It could have been the water maybe then? I also heard that some times when it gets like that you could be low in calcium and magnesium.

At this time, my legs are not hurting. Hope they won't. I try to drink a lot of water. Perhaps, I didn't get in enough. The pain was similar to when I have gone to a theme park and walked for hours. Today was good. I did some yoga and also went to Curves. Hubby and I went out for dinner but I only ate half of my meal. Too many calories.

Hugs to all!

I hope your legs feel better soon. Was it like a chin splint or cramping? Did you drink enough fluids? I heard that not getting enough fluids in can give you leg cramps, also not stretching good before you do a lot of walking too. All my best to you and the whole team.

Today was busy. I went to the bank, fruit market and other errands. I was able to get my nails done. All in all I ended up also walking almost 3 miles. For some reason, my legs have been hurting for the past couple of days. I walk all the time so I don't know what the problem could be.

Janette - have a great night.

LindaB - love and hugs for your upcoming surgery. Unfortunately, the IBS belly pain was here today. No D but extreme pain! ugh

Thanks everyone! All my best to you all always. My ibs has been doing fine for a long, long time now. I have had a head ache for some reason the last two days though. Maybe allergies, or the weather, or what ever. I took a pain pill for it last night and then ended up taking another one today, and then just laid down for a quick nap today. I still have it slightly, but I feel much better after the quick rest. Take care and all my best to you all always. Janette

So glad to hear everyone is doing well. I have been getting everything in order before my surgery. I am so ready for this to be over. My tummy is still reactive but with the help of immodium and tummy meds it is settling down to a point. I'm sure it is just my nerves.

I hope all works out for you Janette in every possible way.

Linda you sound like your tummy issues have finally settled. So happy for you. I am hopeful that once I heal and can walk that it will calm me down, thereby calming my tummy.

Take care and enjoy the day!

Today went well. I did have some Mexican food. It is usually a trigger but no problems. However, I know the sodium is so high! Plan to eat lighter tomorrow. I am still keeping up with water consumption and a bit of exercise.This was a day I took a shorter walk.

Janette - don't give up. If that many of people are interviewing, it may take quite awhile for the employer to decide. But good for you for checking out other options.

LindaB - I am glad that you got a good result from the medical test.

When I was at the interview, even though I thought it was going well, at the end she told me there were a lot of people up for just a few openings. (saw on FB where the job was posted that about 100 people responded for more info as they were interested and wanted to apply to the job. So I really do know that there were a lot of us that applied. And she had at least some one interviewing just before me, and some one waiting for it after me too that night. And she had been interviewing for a few days before she got me in for an interview too.) And then she said if I didn't hear anything by Friday then that meant the job went to some one else. And I haven't heard any thing. I even emailed her a thank you right after the interview, and didn't hear any thing back from that. So today I emailed her back again and asked her for feed back on my interview. Hoping that maybe she will tell me any thing that I could work on improving for the next time I have an interview, if my resume was okay, was I asking for too much hourly pay, etc. So we will see what happens now. I told the bf that I might end up going to the job hunting help that Goodwill offers at an office close to our house. Or trying another tempt agency and see if they can help get me placed some where.

Well with the bf's son's mom going to be gone most of the last two weeks of this month maybe it is good that I didn't get it. And it was only going to be a part time job where they were saying they would only work me 10-20 hrs a week any ways and it wouldn't be a set schedule. So it would be hard to schedule a second job or any thing else too. So maybe it is for the best?

Hi Linda and Janette! I finally got a clear culture so my knee surgery is on for Wednesday. My nerves must be up even though I don't feel like it, because my IBSD has hit with a vengeance. We have been in the single digits and teens at night and low 20's during the day. Too cold to do much that's for sure.

Linda I am so glad you are well. You look really good in your picture.

Janette don't give up hope. Sometimes it takes a week or so to process. I use to prescreen applicants in HR for the city bus company and it would take two to four weeks at times. Just believe in yourself and call every 3 days so they know how motivated you are.

Take care and have a great weekend!

Linda B

I had a good day. I got in plenty of exercise. Felt well today. Although sleepy this evening. Had a pretty healthy dinner.

LindaB - so sorry that you are not feeling well. Did you get the results from your test yet?

Janette - I hope all is well and that you do get the job.

Janette all the best on the job interview. If you handle it like you handled organizing and moving your sister you will ace it easily!

Linda so glad to hear your tummy is settling down. Having gone through it for a year I know how frustrating it can be at times. I still have a few bad days, but mostly it's improved since I am careful of what I eat. No fried, grease, or spicey foods helps. Meat is also a huge trigger I found, this one is hard for me.

Well I went for follow up today with my urologist, and I am praying the culture test comes back clear. I have been fighting an E. Coli infection for two months. I need my knee repaired next week. I can't even go to the grocery store without my knee swelling and causing pain.

Well hope everyone has a great day! I am going to relax for bit now.

Take care
Linda B

Thanks! Our weather has been crazy lately too. Dipping down a lot colder than usual, especially after the sun goes down and before the day starts to really warm up. But are days are starting to warm back up. My IBS is doing fine still. I have a job interview set for Wednesday evening for a part time job at a Payless Shoe Store not far from our house. So wish me luck on that!

So glad to hear you are starting to feel better Janette and Linda.

I am doing much better since the antibiotics are finally kicking in. I just pray it doesn't delay my knee repair. We went to the grocery store and by the time we finished my knee was swollen and hurting. Crazy as it sounds, I am soooo looking forward to getting it repaired so I can get on with life. Rain has passed and now the very cold air is moving in. We will be in the 20's tonight. It was 61 last night. The yoyo effect does not help you feel well.

I hope all our new members are well and having a good day.

Take care and stay safe.

Linda B

Hi team! I felt pretty well today. I did not eat as well as I should. But I did get in some good exercise. I also drank a lot of water which does help. I must say that I have had so much gas everyday in spite of not having D or C. I am taking fiber pills which help.

Thanks so much! It was are real shock for us to have to deal with as she was only 7 and seemed really healthy, happy and active. One minute she was fine, then the next she was crying in pain on and off but still getting around and eating. By the time I found a hospital to take her to in the morning she was in more pain but still getting around. But then by the time I got there and sat her down on the scale, she was crippled up in the back end and just dragging her back legs. And they didn't give her a good out come with surgery even if I could have afforded it, which I couldn't. And they didn't give her a good out come with out the surgery either. And I couldn't just leave her in pain. So sadly we had to put her down. I am really attached to the boy's lab/boxer now that we had her for a yr. And we just got another 1 yr old dog recently to keep that 2 yr old dog company.

We are still having the cold nights and mornings, but the days are slowly warming back up. Monday and Tuesday we should have a beautiful day, but will still be cold at night and morning.

My ibs is still doing great, even with all the stress I have been under the last several months it is still doing good.

All my best to you all always.

Janette I am so sorry about your pet. I know how devastating that is to do, and the loss. We have had to do that twice, and we are more attached to our Lab than we were to the others. She is on meds for hip dysplasia and based on her progression and age, we will be lucky to have her another 2 years. Miko turns 11 in March. We have been dealing with really cold and gray rainy skies every day, which is unusual for us as well. This week we will get in the single digits with a high in the low 20's if we are lucky. I wouldn't mind the cold so much if we could just get some sun. Even our weather lady commented about how few sunny days we have had in the past month. Here's praying we both get some decent weather soon. On the up side after my knee surgery heals it should be warm enough to get outside and walk my dog again. I am looking forward to that the most. I have missed it a lot. My IBS fluctuates back and forth between D and C, with a few good days in between. But I am working on getting back on track with healthier choices and hopefully it will come around again. Take care and stay safe.

Welcome back! So glad to have you with us again. I am doing fine ibs wise still. I too have put some weight back on. I started at 170 and got down to 140 earlier last yr and now I am around 150. But I know stress and some depression got the better of me, especially with having to put my dog down in Nov. And I just really didn't try to lose during the holidays. I tried a little to maintain, but didn't even work that hard at that. I just decided to enjoy the holiday and eat what I wanted, but I never went really over board with it. And the last few days we have had really unusual cold weather. We have been in the 30's and 40's a lot even in the day time. yesterday we were suppose to get up to 50, but every time I checked we were not up there. And today we are suppose to hit 60, but again we haven't got there. We have had a lot of frost too. Some places just like 10 miles or so to the north and east of us even got snow! So this cold weather is not making it so that I really want to go out side and do much for long. Been doing most of the stuff that I can inside. But I have had to run some errands and such too. Well all my best to you all always.
