Progress on RMC, Foot News, Walking News, JoAnn Fabrics Store
Rocky Mountain Christmas by Marty Bell. I am almost done stitching the bottom half
of this Mansion. I am going to continue to go across my three rows all the way to the end of Page 6 and than I will go back and do the next three rows on Page 5 and continue going all the way across to the end of Page 6 and than I will go back to Page 5 and do the last two rows all the way across to the end of Page 6 and than this project will be completely finished...I am getting so very excited :)
I have come to the conclusion that I just have to wear my ASICS Tennis Shoes with my Orthotics in them. I get more support from my ASICS Tennis Shoes than I do with my New Balance and I need that support due to having Flat Feet and very tiny feet as well. I have tried everything this week and nothing has really helped so I have gone back to my ASICS Tennis Shoes and my Orthotics. My P. T. did take off the one lift for me and that has been helping too. I just have to stand for few minutes after I get up from sitting.
I have been getting my walking exercise in - I walk up and down my hallway in my Apt Bldg about every hour or so and I walk like 5 or 6 times at a time. I need to keep my legs strong and my feet strong so they don't get weak and get stiff on me. My next door neighbor had knee surgery long time ago and when her battery died in her Electric Scooter she walked all the way to the lounge - our hallways are 200 feet long - and she made the comment that since she was walking to and from the lounge her legs were getting stronger and she was using her cane for safety reasons but her legs were getting stronger. Well as soon as she got her new battery for her electric scooter she went back to riding her electric scooter up and down the hallway. Now she is getting to the point that she can't hardly walk out the door to get on the senior van. She is getting weaker all of the time. I do not want to get to that point at all. That is why I made up my mind that no matter how bad it hurts when I first start walking I am going to get up and walk up and down the 200 feet long hallway to stay strong. I use to walk all over my hometown every single day for 2 or 3 hours at a time and I want to be able to get to that point again and that is my goal. I am not going to give up. I am bound determine to keep on walking and it doesn't hurt when I am walking...its just getting started at first and than I'm fine. I can walk pretty fast once I get going.
I went to my Lung Specialist yesterday and knock on wood I have not gotten Tracheobronchitis this year so far and usually I get this in the Spring and in the Fall. I am on two very strong meds so I don't get it plus they help with my breathing as well. I don't have to go back to my Lung Specialist til January. Worst time of the year to be going to a doctor almost an hour away due to Winter Weather.
My friend and I went to JoAnn Fabrics yesterday afternoon and I went in and I bought a Counted Cross Stitch Pattern Magazine called Cross Stitch Collection. There is a Autumn Scene Pattern in this magazine and when I saw it I just had to have it. There are other patterns in this magazine that I want to stitch as well. I bought a whole bunch of DMC Threads since I was running really low. There was another lady there yesterday that she was buying DMC Threads and she does counted cross stitch as well.
We have been having rain all of this week and cold and than warm and than cold weather...geesh. Mother Nature can't make up her mind.
Well that is all for now...
Everyone have a Blessed Day
Love & Prayers
God Bless You
