I got no internet yet. I’m waiting. I’m posting this from my friend’s house in a snowstorm. I have to work 7 days a week but sometimes I can go out for a few hours! GREAT!!!
You see I told the old lady (she’s 20 years older than me, so she’s old – I’m not :) ) and I told her relatives during the interview that internet is very important to me. And I will pay for it. But they were very slow with helping me to get connected. They probably thought there is no rush, why can be so important for an average older woman, housekeeper, to get internet? They don’t know that I’m not average. I never was and I am not planning to be an average never :) How could I explain to those people that I am not only housekeeper but also wordpress queen of inspiration on the mission to save some lives. :) And that my blog and internet connections means more to me than anything else. And this always waiting got on my nerves so on 25 February I told the old lady “it looks to me that I can’t get internet connection here so I will have to go somewhere else” and I wasn’t bluffing. DON’T GO DON’T GO, I NEED YOU she said with the tears in her eyes. So I said I want to stay here with you, I really like it here and you are nice lady but as I told your family two weeks ago internet is very important to me. And I need some help with that. So she called her nephew and he called me back two hours later and said on March 5, someone will come to the house and install the internet for you. It will cost $218 for installation and $19 a month. So I said that’s fine with me, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
So this is how is goes sometimes, you have to slam your shoe on the table to get some attention. :) Anyway, I hate to be ignored. So now I have to wait 4 more days and I can start blogging again. Read some blogs, send some likes and smiley faces to the cyberspace.
Thank you all for your patience, God bless you all.
To tell you the truth, I’m getting tired of cooking and eating those healthy soups. And on the top of it I’m so busy lately that I don’t even have the time to cook anymore. So I was searching frantically for other, easier way to get my healthy nutrients. And I found it! —ENSURE – NUTRITION SHAKE – TO HELP GET STRONG ON THE INSIDE – COMPLETE, BALANCED NUTRITION – # 1 DOCTOR RECOMENDED BRAND – 8 FL. OZ – VANILLA OR THE OTHER FLAVORS. Great! This shake has lot more good stuff in it, than my soup. And how very convenient! And honestly, I like the taste of it. Of course, I have to eat some food beside this, but one or two shakes on a busy day will keep me going. I have to stay in shape, just for the case if “MR. UGLY” (cancer) will decide to invite me some day to some Arm Wrestling Match……. or something…… You never know. This Monster is very sneaky.
My friend told me: “You are going to get fat drinking this stuff”. So I told her: “I’m going to worry about this WHEN or IF I get fat”.
And my neighbor said: “How do you know if this stuff is doing you any good?” And I told him: “Hey, I’m alive, no?”
And my other friend told me: “You look good, you don’t need this stuff”. And I told him: “I look good, because I’m drinking this stuff”.
Some people are so very skeptical……. Try it for yourself. Maybe you can skip one not so very healthy meal a day and enjoy something “good for you and easy”. Cheers!
Knowing cancer symptoms is very important,becase early detection saves lives.
According to Webster’s Dictionary: symptom – in medicine, means any condition accompanying or resulting from a disease and serving as an aid in diagnosis; a perceptible change in the body or its functions which indicates disease.
Years ago I didin’t pay to much attention to cancer symtoms. I was young, healthy. But I learn my leson and I know now how important is to listen to my body and investigate what my body is telling me.
Here are the basic symptoms of the basic cancers:
- Bladder cancer – pain in abdomen, blood in urine.
-Bone cancer – pain, swelling, fractures, weight loss, nausea, weakness.
- Brain cancer – headaches, dizzines, vision and memory problems, fatigue, weight loss, nausea.
- Breast cancer – lumps in the breast, swollen lymph nodes, discharge from the nipple.

Learn more. Do your own research. But always think positive, eat healthy. Reduce your cancer risk.
I want to tell you how I’m dealing with symptoms:
- Day one – I have a headache,
- Day two – I have a lover back pain,
- Day three – My headache is gone. I have a pain in my left arm.
- Day four – I’m feeling very, very tired.
- Day five – I’m feeling fine today. All pain is gone.
DIAGNOSIS: I’M GETTING OLD……………
Or less. This job is too much. Too much stress, too much of everything. Old Lady complains all day about everything.
And a week ago we have a family gathering. The Old Lady told everyone that I’m not doing my job, arguing with her and that there is not much work for me to do.
I don’t believed! I was speechless!
Than she told me that I can stay, but she will pay me less money.
I get up, found my voice and I said: “I’m not working one more day for one dollar less. I’m leaving tomorrow!!!” And I left the house. Anyway, it was my half a day off.
I’m not stupid. I know that I’m better and cheaper than average. :) .
When I come back in the evening, she said to me: “Don’t go, I changed my mind. You can stay on the same pay.”
So I said: “Okay.” And I went back to work.
I’m very upset. It was a nasty try to save money.
You see, I need to work little longer – 67 more days – if I can take IT. I need to save some more money. But if I can’t – I will have to be okay with less…
And finally I can get some rest and work on my book in some peaceful, quiet place – without any stress…..
I can’t wait! But I have to. :) .
Thank you all for visiting.
Happy Birthday to me! I’m 67 years old! But only when I really think about it. Like today…
Otherwise I look and feel much younger. Even now…
Two years ago – when I started my Blog – I told my friend: “My email address is oneanna65…” And she said: ” You should never tell everyone that you are so old!” So I told her: “Why? What’s wrong with being 65 years old?”.
Two days later I told my other friend: “y email address is oneanna65…” And she said: “So you were born in 1965? ” Well, this was a good one! :) !
I think that if you keep busy, you don’t have the time to get old…
I was very busy all my life – trying to find my Destiny. Going places… Doing this and that… Just to find out that I was in the wrong place… doing the wrong thing…
But I have lived very interesting life. No regrets.
Anyway, how could I know – many years ago – that my Destiny was blogging? In English??? :) !
So, maybe because so much was happening in my life, I didn’t have the time to get old?
And every year – at the beginning of April – I do realize how old I am.
And every year I’m surprised. I check my Birth Certificate. I count: Okay, in 1948 I was one year old, in 1949 I was two, and so on…
Than I look in the mirror… No way, there must be something wrong with those numbers… I think…
Anyway, Happy 67-th Birthday to me!
But only today.
Because tomorrow I’m going to be younger! :) !
God Bless you all.
Or 12 Saturdays only :) and I’m going to be free! I can rest and write!
This job is lot more complicated than I thought at first. I’m on duty about 14 hours a day – 6 & 1/2 days a week.
Someone commented on my post “New job”: “I wish you success on your job”. Thank you Sweetie! But this is not about success – but surviving IT. :)
It is a challenge. I have to juggle my time between job obligations, blogging and trying to eat healthy.
Even if the Old Lady don’t need me, I’m too tired to cook for myself. I can only go to my room and keep blogging. :) That’s all what I can do.
Sometimes I cook some vegetables, fry an egg or salmon – but mostly I’m buying only healthy foods that are ready to eat or easy to prepare like: bananas, avocados, blueberries, watermelon, broccoli, potato, tofu, flax seed meal, pumpernickel, gouda cheese, almond butter, raw honey, dark chocolate….
And of course some herbal remedies are helpful: Red Clover, Gotu kola, Kelp, Burdock Root, Dandelion Root… And to stay cool – St. John’s Worth. :) .
As long as I don’t eat any foods what cancer likes – I shall be okay.
I’m drinking lots of filtered water, green tea, ginger tea, and lately Aloe Vera Juice. I have done some research on Aloe and it become my favorite remedy. All the good stuff in one small glass…
But some say that Aloe Vera can be harmful to your health. Oh, well, as long as I’m feeling good, I’m not loosing my hair :) I’m going to keep drinking IT.
Thank you all for inspiration!
God Bless you all.
Yeah, two years ago on March 5th I got my first blog page send out to Cyberspace. And today I have my Internet finally installed. So I have two reasons to celebrate!!! Forget it! I’m so tired! From one very tiring job I plunged to the new one without any rest.
But if I can keep working for few more months I will be able to rent small room ( with the view… :) ) and start working seriously on my book!
I pick a quitting date already: June 21th – Saturday – it is summer solstice.
So 15 more weeks or 108 days… :) !
Is going to be very hard, but I can do it. With my Angels help, deep breathing, St. John’s Wort double strength capsules and very healthy diet.
So good luck to me and the Old Lady !!!
…. 108 more days of very hard work…….
God Bless us all. Thank you for your support!
I think I found a new job already. I got only one call from my Add – one very lonely Lady – 80 years old – needs some help – 6 days a week. I was looking for part time job with full time pay, but this is full time with full time pay. That’s okay, I take it.
So I’m leaving my old job on Sunday morning and going for an interview. New Lady already checked my references. And if she likes me and if I like the situation – I will start my new job on Monday.
Woooooooow! No rest for me!
But the new job is going to be (I hope!) lot easier – not two, but one Lady – without dementia.
But anyway, I’m going to take this job. And if I don’t like it – I’m going to look for a new one.
But there is no Internet! So if I decided to stay, I will find a way to get it.
So – Good Luck to me!
Three more days and my New, Better Life begins!
Thank you all for reading.
God Bless you all!
