(That was 200)

Found it-- it's not a sales case (tho it can and will be), but a portable seamstress kit:

Mine ($6) is an older model than the one shown in the above URL, and probably no longer available. It has the wheels set on the wider side, which is great (I have had narrow wheelbases tip while towing), but Tutto Luggage (www.tutto.com) has a slew of portable office, craft, or sewing bags currently made that have all kinds of inner-pocket coolitude.

Mine has side pockets that zip open to lie flat. Each side is different. One side has a binder with large and small plastic pockets for craft or print material, and/or CDs/DVDs. The other has 2 velcro on/off mesh zippered pouches. When I do a presentation, I also am expected to supply nutritious snacks, so that is what will go in there-- protein bars (meal replacement), cereal bars, dried fruit, etc.

The large inner core of the case has 3 sections-- a narrow central section will hold laptop in padded sleeve and power cord. The 2 outer ones will hold soft binders of curriculum material. One of the side pockets (each has also an inner section) has room for singalong booklets or songsheets. The other-- my Kindle with more songs already on it to lead.

The top on mine is a heavy flap-over with that logo I can velcro over (have the velcro, LOL) hinged on the wider side. Under it are gadget pockets of various sizes, and a few more zippered areas.

Portable sales/workshop/FUN.


A large laptop case Hardi gave me is a backup item. With that added I can also carry a pair of speakers to run off the lappie, and a tiny piano keyboard (or plucked psaltery) I already have, for opening pitches-- a capella songleading.

meditation and qi gong

Now on to a new batch of juice and beginning the uploading of chapters of my next book, On Garfield Creek - Touchstones of Our Past.

One load of laundry in the wash. More ideas coming to me re arrangement of LR shelves. I face them every time I do qi gong, so there are always ideas which come to mind.:-)

Other progress here includes a personal calorie list now on my phone to augment the alarms already set with desired calories/time of day. I think of this as the digital equivalent of mom-calling "Time to come in for [meal] now..." Family life was too toxic and chaotic for much of THAT, but I can do it for myself for retraining purposes with the phone alarms.

By using this approach I also do not have to track calories micro-managerially-- I tend to under-eat (skipping snacks and meals), not over-eat (we shrunk our stomachs already), and to eat the wrong foods (not enough fruit). So now that I am already in the habit of including the fruit, the real report to the doc is whether I am on plan or not, and that means playing the scale-numbers game balanced by clothing fit for muscle-development adjustments to scale data. And it's working, for ME, and the scale to me is just data-- not anxiety.

So I am now at the top weight I will ever be: THREE hundred FIFTY-three POUNDS.

I just got off the phone with the doc (ice storm preventing sched. office visit), and will have an order waiting for me at the hospital I prefer for the thyroid testing we agreed will be the basis for next week's face appointment.

===

A new area-- PT has taught me what the difference FEELS like between:
<> arthritis,
<> weak muscle,
<> over-worked muscle/tendon/ligament,
<> injured muscle/tendon/ligament,
<> tight muscle/tendon/ligament.

It has also taught me what to DO when I notice any of those.

Thus I now realize that there is some very-localized lumbar spinal osteoarthritis, which needs VERY strong muscles to carry this weight thru continued training/rehab. (Stronger than they are now before I add any more weight to the machines I am now working out with.)

I just booked a last aquatic PT appt next week, so I can revisit where I started, and feel how easy the early "impossible" exercises are now-- but more importantly, so that the Muscle Queen can show me what people USUALLY do to strengthen the area around that spinal issue on LAND-- which I can do in my club pool, where the water will continue to protect my back from fast-developing osteoarthritis in that spot.

After a few days with the weight up over the stone boundary again, its gone down. Yesterday's walk felt as though I was lugging around a load more extra than I actually was, so I'm drinking lots of dandelion coffee in the hopes of losing water. Today's led walk was much longer, but not so dragging until the end.
I had two compost bins delivered - I don't really need two at the moment as I already have one, but the second one was half price, so i thought I might as well get one now.
I had to move and empty the old cold water tank which will one day be sunk as a reservoir to make the space for the first one, next to the old one. Into it went a load of weeds that have been waiting for a home, a box full of shredded paper (isn't it odd how much room a small stack of bank statements takes when shredded?), the slurry out of the tank (rotted down comfrey) and various other untidy stuff. There will be more when I start work properly on the garden.
Into the second went a bag of last years compost and some netting and plastic trellis, to keep them out of sight. The garden looks much better now.
Sadly, I found a bloated frog or toad in the water. I can't imagne how it got in, as the sides of the tank are two foot high. On the offchance that it is in fact not dead, but hibernating, I tucked it under the fence behind a board which came from around the compost which I put in the bin.

Dishes and laundry for me today. And a nap. A glorious, multi hour nap. The weather here is craptastic so Pete worked from home which allowed for that wonderful nap.

I'm taking steroids for my ears which is making my blood sugars highly chaotic. An email is in to my endocrinologist as to how to manage it for this week (and then the steroids will be done). Current blood sugar reading? 490. YIKES. I've already taken a large dose of fast acting insulin only to have it jump up another 40 points. A smaller dose has been taken and I will check it again in an hour. No more large doses...I'm afraid it will drop me in the bottom of the river really fast if I do that too many more times in one day.

Still can't hear much. I can hear just fine on the phone but face to face...not so much. Whispering in my ear is great too...must be that the phone and the whisper are close enough to get the vibrations through.

I'm planning on paying some bills tonight and doing a little organizing on that front after the baby goes night night.

Be well everyone.

Michelle

Susan, you're a brave woman. I have about 30 pounds to lose and haven't stated my weight here. It's a rough thing to do. I looked up the site the bag came from and agree - disguise that logo! Sounds like a fly-by-night operation if ever I heard of one.

Michelle, congratulations on that nap. I had a long day today but I did get to the doctor and am set with an Rx for the cough syrup. The neti pot and the meds I'm using now are good (and she was interested in my findings about using Pickling Salt in the neti pot).

This evening I walked up to Susie's house and spoke with her sister for a while, she's in town from north of Chicago. The place Susie's in now doesn't have as much staff so it takes longer to get help when you ask for it. I think now, once the cold is over, is when going down to see her and help is going to make a bigger difference.

Taking tomorrow off, after I get some photos processed from the last couple of days. Giving myself some time to take naps and knock out this cold.

Here is the next thread.

PT uber alles! I'm real sore tonight, so I'm up "late" waiting for pain meds to kick in. It's up-late night/sleep in morning. Tomorrow we plan a full day of scootering, and it may be warm enough for Hardi to bicycle. We're heading for an area we have been wanting to try for some time now. In the environs is a sales place where 2 cheap dog leashes will be picked up-- they will be exercise equipt I need to replicate from PT for trainer/home use.

Just 3 appts left, next week, and then I get my schedule back. Worked on that today. Lot of new activities to squeeze into it. TV almost has to go.

Today was grocery day. A new driver was running the bus, and she dragged home everything we REALLY needed, including over 50% of the grocery bucks in PRODUCE.

Most of the produce was handled like we used to bulk-process meats. Two items netted are particularly clever.

One is a plastic bin that had already become a pull-out salad-items bin-- to carry to the counter at suppertime? Now it holds several tallish, slender tubs (empty Chobani's!) of salad items already cleaned, sliced, de-bagged, etc-- an open salad bar in a bin, which needs only a set of tongs to make it complete. Why? Because I am adding salads to lunches over which I will not have time to linger in preparing. The central item is the splurge-feeling bouquet of flatleaf parsley with its feet in a square water-jar I saved (was jam) that I LOVE:LOVE:LOVE. Right next to that tempting red bell pepper.

Item 2 is a shallow little pull-out drawer in the fridge holding a gallon-sz ziploc of sliced and mixed veggies. I can take the whole bag to my chair and munch happily while Hardi (or the nukerator) prepare the rest of a meal, or between meals to augment snacks.

The lemons I have tried buying for years always seemed to mold in the fridge, so I threw 'em out of the fridge-- permanent-like. They are nestled under the bread in a basket we've been using to cache carbs for several months. It oughtta be airy enough to flavor the bread, smell wonderful, AND keep the lemons fresh and usable.

Another splurge item: squeeze garlic, YES! Pre-minced, in a plastic squeezerooni! Refillable!

Up again, drat. serious cutting back on input today. Starting with a berry smoothy.

I've sold the knitting machine for a good price, to be collected on Monday, and a storage bench for a less good one. The chair, despite watchers, has not gone, so I've relisted it.

Time flies when we're having fun. February 15th was the last time I worked in the attic.
