Tues morning got up---fixed 2 dogs food (one upstairs & momma downstairs) ran downstairs and let momma out to potty, ran upstairs to let upper girl out.  Got puppy food soaking, made my coffee, got a few sips.  Brought upper dog in, ran down stairs and fed puppies.  got dressed then back downstairs to feed momma, she also cleans up puppy leftover.  Back upstairs & drank some lukewarm coffee.  Got dressed to go outside, took momma out with us, put all 3 dogs in outside runs, got 2 of the food ready while hubby got the horses & chicken food ready, brought 2 kennel dogs in to eat---went out and fed pony and chickens while hubby fed horses and barn cat.  Hubby left and I cleaned outside runs.  got that done and me & momma came  back to the house.
 
Spent forever finding my moms room by phone, in the hospital (knee replacement).  Got ready to leave by 10:00am, stopped to pick up flower arrangement and on to the hospital.   Mom in terrible pain.  Left there around 3:00 and stopped at my step dau's to run her antiviri----Went to mom's house and walked her shihtzu-----came home and put momma in the kennel for a while------then cleaned puppy poopy papers & replaced, got them food soaking, unloaded & loaded dishwasher-----cooked chicken salads for dinner.  left dishes in sink (hubby hates that)---got more puppy food soaking.  7:30 went outside and fed horses and barn cat, brought dogs in & momma into the downstairs, fed momma.  10:00  put momma in garage to potty, babies are screaming.  gotta bring her back in soon.  All the while keeping the fire going. 
 
And hubby wants to know what I do all day. I didn't get the kitchen floor scrubbed AGAIN.  I think I go up and down the steps about 25 times a day.  Whewww I am tired tonight  smilewinkgrin

Good Grief!! I'm tired just reading it all. Your hubby needs to shadow you for just one day. Then he'll never ask again. ;-)

OMG, I need a nap now after reading that. What I wouldn't give for that kind of energy, I had to quit at noon yesterday I was so tired, normally make it a few hours longer.
 
And your DH doesn't think you do enough??? Chutz is right he needs to follow you around for a couple of days. If he doesn't like dishes in the sink let him do them and he can mop a floor or two too. devil

Hubby is a workaholic, he thinks that is I (or someone else) that every minute I( szhould be doing something,k like cleaning.  My house is not a pig stye but it is not perfect.  He wants perfect showroom quality.  Dishes done right after dinner.  Keep in mind that we live on 15 acres in a log home.  The only way It will look like that is if I clean / scrub every day (sigh) And when I am out all day it is impossible so the stress hits in full force. 
 
When he does the dishes or run the sweeper (that is all he does) his comment is always "I did this for you"  not "Hey I thought I would help you out and did "whatever"  It is always kinda like a dig-like I worked all day and had to come home and did your job... ......Don't get me wrong, he does a ton of work outside.  I rush and get my stuff done and it makes him happy-----when he is happy, I don't hear any crap.

I used to be married to a man like that,"I want my life to be just so" but he wants someone else to make sure it is. I'm glad he did me the favour of leaving me before I was hit with fibro as I cannot even imagine trying to deal with this disease living with a person like that, the stress would have been unbearable and I imagine my fibro would have been alot worse just from the stress. I don't know how you did all that stuff and can still move. I cleaned my car yesterday, just the inside not even washing it and I couldn't get out of bed this morning. It took me an extra 2 hours of just laying there to deal with the pain sufficiently to even try to get out of bed but it was worth it just to have accomplished something as simple as having a clean car :)

If I did all that in a day, by the time my hubby got home he'd be looking for an undertaker.

Does that not cause your fibro to flare?

Yes I flare but hubby doesn't really understand.  I don't say anything anymore because his comment it that he hurts too because of the kind of work he does/  He doesn't realize that this isn't just muscles but deep burning pain.  Maybe someday he will get it.  In the meantime I will take my breaks thru the day. 
 
He also does not believe in afternoon naps but the minute he hits his recliner he is out like a light.  If I doxe off he HAS to say "are you sleeping?"  aaarrrgghhh tees me off to no end. 
 
He is a great guy but he drives me nuts.------Oh another thing is we have to go bed at the same time even if I am ready an hour earlier. 
 
I don't have the energy at all, I force myself, I have no choice.  It catches up about every 2 or 3 months and I am down for the count.  A good 3 days before I can function

Has he ever gone to the doc with you and had the doc explain fibro to him or has he read any articles like "The Spoon Theory"??? I know it is hard for normals to understand what a day in the life of a fibromite's life is like but he does need to be educated. I would have never understood fibro before I got it and I was much like your DH back then with the working all the time and perfectionism. My DH has no way of knowing what I feel like, and I hope he never knows, but we have been living with fibro long enough for him to be able to tell, even if I don't say anything to him about how I feel when we talk on the phone during the day cause he knows I don't waste a minute on good days getting done what I can. Besides I don't look the best when I'm not feeling well.

GSDGirl,

I just got a german shepherd pup two weeks ago and it is all that I can do to keep up with her. How many do you have? I love gsds. They are the greatest dogs. I lost my Dharma in November, the puppy isn't replacing her, just winning a new place in my heart. I may get a male pup in August, but don't nkow if I want to go through all of this again, but it would be cool to have one.

Hugs, to you. I hope that you are having a pain free day. And I too got tired just reading your post. You go girl!!! I love dogs, I see that you do too.

Getting by, I have 5 plus the 2 pups.
Blaze my "house" dog is 8 Y/O
Demi the dwarf who has zero brain function or endocrine function--9lbs full grown is 4 years old or 5
Ara momma to pups, she is ready to retire from sport (Schutzhund)
Emma who I bought off of the internet so someone didn't breed the heck out of her (I never bred her) she is
          11 years old
and Allie my very expensive brainless beautiful "German show line".  She has zero desire for sport .  She is 5
       
It is tiring but I don't really know any different for the last 15 years or so.  The last 3 are in the kennel, it is indoor and out door, heated inside with igloos outside.
 
Is your pup German lines or American lines?  How is the biting coming along?  I have also found these little bone shape thingies that you put in the freezer that they really like.  Honestly I would wait until the pup is pretty well trained before I got another one.

Hi GSDGirl,

I am working on the biting, she wants to chew everything. She is still so young, it is hard to correct her other than distract her and give her a toy. I have thought about a teething ring, but she would bite through it with those razor sharp teeth.

She is such a runt, I can't imagine her getting big. But she is growing. She was the smallest of the bunch. Her ears are getting bigger too. They have been standing for a long time. They stood up early. So I don't think there will be any problem with that. Though I had one once who had a droopy ear. He was quite comical looking.

I am not sure of her bloodline. I think she is American Shepherd. The breeder didn't say anything otherwise. I am suppose to get her pedigree soon. I really dont' know why I got one because I am not going to breed her. I guess I just wanted that piece of paper. lol... My last german shepherd had german grandparents. Or maybe it was german import grandparents, but there was some in there. She was quite a stocky dog. I don't think Jasmine is going to be all that stocky, but we shall see. She is so young still so it is hard to say. Her daddy is 130 lbs, but mom is only about 75. And she was a runt. Though I have had runts and they turn out to be the biggest dogs. That is so strange.

Well, I am rambling, got myself on a subject that I love.

Have a great night.

Hugs, Karen
