Awe hon a rough day yes but in the end a solvable one. And thank god for the boys. Now everything should be good and the pipes shouldn't freeze again?

I am very proud of you. Having to do things on your "own" You're a very strong lady You'll get through this and the boys are there too. Venting? a good thing. It's ar better to let it out than keep it bottled in.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

Well today has really been rough. I have been sooo mad at myself. I didn't turn my water on to a pencil stream last night and my water pipes froze. My sister-in-law had a generator change out on her pacemaker today. I needed to be at the hospital at 7:30, so I didn't have time to work on the pipes. So I told my brother-in-laws and they asked about the vents and were they closed? I remember that Danny had told me that they closed on their own when it got cold. So they told me to come home and make sure they were all closed. Then one of them and I were talking about the door leading to the crawl space. I told him that I thought it had a screen over it and he told me he didn't think so. I came home from the hospital and checked everything out. The door did have a screen and all the vents had closed. Danny's brother then told me to get some cardboard and put over the door. I had gotten a new TV for Christmas and he had cut up the cardboard when he set it up for me. I took that and put over the door. the only thing about it was it had warped setting outside. I put 3 bricks up against the bottom and the top bowed out. One brother-in-law told me to get a tomato stake and scotch it up at the top. Well looking around in the snow and cold I finally found a board and then the guys showed up to help me and all they had to do was find another something for the other side. Danny's brother couldn't find anything so he went out and found just a branch that had fell out of a tree and broke it off and put it up against the cardboard. While I had been working on the door the pipes thawed and now I have water.

I was sooo mad at myself that I started to cry while I was stomping around outside. I yelled at myself and told me not to cry. I did anyway and then I told myself that all those tears were going to freeze on my face and to just stop it. Well now that I look back it does sound kind of foolish but I felt soo stupid because the pipes froze to begin with.

I do feel better now. Amazing that I actually solve my problem and getting things fixed. But I really don't feel like I can doo all of this stuff. The stuff that Danny always did. But I am trying. It was just a very emotional day.

On a brighter note. I went to the Officer meeting for the HOG Chapter and out to eat at the Olive Garden. I only ate about1/3 of the spaghetti that I ordered. I brought the rest home.

I hope that everyone else had a good day or evening as the case may be.
Vickie

I am committing to my success.
Starting on this day, Monday, January 6th, 2014, I, Vickie Massey, agree that I will make more informed and better decisions about my health and diet. I will dedicate my time and action to achieve this. I will use the tools that I have to plan a better life style. I will log on to SP for 1 wk. because I do deserve to do this and have this happen in my life at this time.

I will look to my buddies for help and support when I have a lapse because I am serious about being committed to doing this. So if I don't log in then I will expect my buddies to let me know that I am needing to get back to it.

Onward and forward because I am a powerful person and I will take charge of my life. I can do this with the help of my friends who are committed as well for their support to help me create a new me.

Singed, VMASSEY (Vickie)
