November 6th-Saturday

November 6th, 2010 at 08:31 am

I have had my ups and downs over the last week. My new osteopathic doctor (who diagnosed me) agreed to disability for 3 months. So my income will be going up since I have only been on 3 hours a day worker's comp disability. I am saving every penny of the additional income towards 2011 Roth IRA.

I signed up for Safeway's new program. I have been pretty lax about finances this last month, after meeting our savings goal for the year. I am trying to get back on track.

However, I have been teaching YD to sew and we are opening an Etsy store with all that beautiful fabric. I keep saying we cannot buy anymore fabric until we actually sell something. If we don't sell anything, I have lots of little girls I can give cute peasant dresses to. YD made a new style yesterday that granddaughter wore yesterday. We don't have a picture of it yet, but it was similar style with a tie in the back.

Here is a sample:

My pain comes and goes. I am going to start pain tracking to see if I can relate food or activities that make it better or worse.

I have also started on homeopathic treatment of rhus (which is poison ivy, weird I know).

My pain pill has kicked in, so off to stretch and walk on the treadmill (I hate to admit it, but I think exercise is helpinig!)

Oh and one more thing, I made pumpkin scones last weekend that were yummy. Here is the link if anyone wants to try them:

Happy weekend everyone!

    That looks like a lovely dress. What a wonderful skill to be able to pass on.

    I hope that you're able to find a way of managing your pain. {{{Hugs}}}

    What a sweet dress, and very beautiful fabric! Good news on the disability, and the tracking sounds like a great idea. I think exercise is one of those necessary evils - good to do, and good to be done with :-) Best wishes!!

    Hi Cheryl,
    You asked about my menu plan - where it was. I'm not sure what you mean by that but I'll tell you how I did it.

    I have a meal planning app on my iphone that lets me input recipes, create shopping lists based on meals selected (but I don't use this shopping list, I have another app for that)and assign meals to days of the week. The app is called "Menu Planner" in case you have an iphone.

    I like having the meal plan on my phone because, since my phone is always with me, I always know what is planned for the day. Shopping on Friday afternoon worked well too because our weekends are always busy with sports.
