Margie, You had me laughing so hard at the things you had to do just to check out one thing LOL....We won't use those darn self check outs either. I also think they have taken away six jobs this way too.

I would be totally confused like you too with all of the different pains meds. I wasn't even aware of what these all did to our high blood pressure meds. I do know our family dr said to just take Tylenol too...Now I know why. I take three different meds for high blood pressure.

But just saying JUST arthritis is the wrong thing to say too. Wait till she has to live with it. I have one spur in my left heel and at times it lets me know it is there too....

X-rays back..."JUST" arthritis and some spurs....talked with the nurse and she just says to take aleve, etc. So, my next appointment, I'm going to have a "battle of the drs" meaning I go to my regular doctor and he says one thing and then I go to heart doctor and he says another. Ibuprofen ( Motrin and Advil) can reduce the effect of blood pressure meds...naproxen (Aleve) can increase risk of heart & circular problems....aspirin should be avoided.......so, I guess I'll take Tylenol and hope my liver isn't affected until the doctors can agree.

Stopped at Wal mart and went to check out with 1 item!! 4 express lanes & none were open, so I am standing in line..1 customer in front plus the asst. manager was talking to the cashier, so I asked the manager how come an express lane wasn't open..she says lane 1 had to be fixed, it was shocking the cashiers..OK, but you have 3 more and none open...the explanation I got was there is a order in which the registers are open...meaning if express 1 is open they can't open express 2 until so many regular registers are open..so in this case 1 is broken and they can't change the "order" of things and open another one because that one can't be open until so many are working. Now, a few months back they did away with about 6 perfectly good lanes and replaced with check out registers that you check out on your own. So, she had the nerve to say "you can use the check out yourself register"...that was the wrong thing to say to me..I told her I did NOT like them, that I come into the store and I wanted to be waited on, I didn't come in to do the work myself and I didn't think I should have to wait 10-15 minutes to be checked out when they have 4 express lanes but none open!! I WAS PISSED!!!!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

Walked 3 1/2 miles "around" today. Running errands again.

Talk tomorrow, Margie

No matter how slow you go...you are miles ahead of those sitting on the couch!

Rosie, I am so sorry the stuff that I had mentioned isn't working for you...I surely know what knee pain is. I have had so many injections and than three surgeries too....I think once you finally got to sit down, you noticed the pain that might have been there earlier in the day too...

My knee seemed to be pretty good today, but, could have been better. But, I made it through this 8 hr. work day. Maybe it takes a while for some things, to work, I don't know. It feels like it hurts more right now, than it has all day today and I am resting, it is like an ache constantly.. Maybe I need to get up and walk some more, well I plan on going to the store for a couple of things in a while anyway..
Yes, I sure hope something works good "Soon"!!!!

Well, my goodness, everyone must have been gone all day or very busy, not many posts on here today??

Rosie, I sure hoped the gel would have helped with the pain in your knee. I guess we have to just find what works best for each of us...

We are going to get our grass cut this morning as they are talking rain all of the three day weekend...Maybe Sun is the best day of the three.

I haven't had time to get on the computer much the past couple of days. I haven't walked much on the gazelle but today but walked almost 3 1/2 miles running errands. Rosie, my dh used to use bag balm, on sores, sprains and strains...he "swore" by it. He has graduated to strong pain pills now. Well, my doctor office called while I was out and dh told them they could reach me on my cell. After about 15 min. and they hadn't called me, I tried and the office had close. I'll call them tomorrow to hear the result of the x-rays on my knees.

Just had a late night frosty..hadn't made any for a good while...tasted good!

Talk tomorrow, Margie

Hi just checking in, been gone all day today. Kirby, So glad Ethan is ok and doing well.
Would be nice if he stayed with you and did the walk and bike, hope he is better each day. (-:
Rosie, Hope your knee is better. Did you call the doctor back and let them know about this?
Just wondered.
Well, Off to sleep. Will try to touch base tomorrow and read the posts.

Merri, I got some of that stuff. today, @ Tractor Supply Store, I have used it 2 times this afternoon after we got back from up north and it does not seem to work, either. I think Tylenol is working mostly. But, I will keep trying that gel

Talked to my Ethan a little bit ago he is fine even his leg does not hurt any more , He said it tingled a lot and hurt some too . He sounded wonderful he said he grandmother I am ok now . Oh that made me feel so good, He is my wonderful grandson . Plan to see if he will stay a week here and walk with me every day. The dr. told him to ride a bike and walk so that would be just great

Frances, that's what my dd says too, that at least she is not out getting into trouble and we know where she is.

I have been getting those Pop Up Ads as well and yes, they are Very Annoying...

It would be nice if I could take more time off from work, but, I just can't see it. my leg feels fine in the morning when I get up, but after being on it for a while then it starts to hurt, emoticon But, hopefully I will get through this.

Good morning, ladies! It's going up around 80 today, I think. It's been mostly in the 70s this week, but inching upward each day.

Wow, "horse liniment" Merri?!! Too funny. Glad it works, but if you wake up one morning with a craving for oats... watch out! emoticon

Rosie, I hope your knee is better with resting it. It's hard to work when you're not feeling great. As for the granddaughter's friend, the only thing I can say is be glad they are where you can find them and know they're not getting into trouble. If she overstays your welcome, there's nothing wrong with telling her you need some family time and could she come back tomorrow.

Andrea, it's awful you broke your finger. You were lucky, though, as I've heard of people having a finger torn off from tangling in a lead that way. It doesn't sound as if it's slowing you down too much.

Margie, I don't know if it's this site or something with my computer, but I seem to be getting a TON of pop-up ads now. I hate those things. I can ignore the ones along the sides, but pop ups are constantly in the middle of the screen - some of them even move when you try to scroll away from them! Annoying!

This is turning into a very busy week for me - but so far I'm keeping up (sort of). My calorie intake is probably triple what it should be, but I'll just have to make up for it next week.

Morning, We got some most needed rain here yesterday. Today is going to be very dry and in the low 70's... my kind of weather too...

We are still looking thorough our things to donate to our church the first weekend in Sept. Oh boy, could I ever fill up those bags so fast. I am starting to think that if I haven't worn some of these clothes in a few years, why not let someone else wear them...

Rosie, I have mentioned on one of the Sparks sites before about the gel that we use on our aches and pains...It is bought around here at Farm & Fleet and it is called: Absorbine Veterinary Liniment GEL and called tropical analgesic.

It is a nice big bottle and runs around $8-$10

As you have guessed LOL it is used for horses...It is a green gel and smells like spearmint and feels so cool when you put some on....It helped me knee within hours..My DH too....

If not in your area, I bet you could even find it online....

Well my daughter home schools her two youngest, now 15 an 13 until Nov. and then grandson will be 14 two days before me and they still live with me @ the present time. It will be nice to see the friend @ school most of the day emoticon emoticon Hopefully my dd and kids will be able to get a place of their own "someday" emoticon The friend is a nice girl, but, ??

My dd has a job now and is getting her training, hopefully it will last, She needs a car and her computers have bit the dust. Her desktop that the kids used has been done for,, for quite a while now and just recently her laptop went, the desktop was getting quite old her dad helped her get it back in either 2004 or 2005, and she has now went through her 3rd laptop I think. I had to have mine fixed with a new harddrive about two years ago and then I have replaced the battery and charger on mine for the 3rd time?? My dd has been going to our Library, it is really close by

I sure wish my Knee would Stop emoticon Hurting, I have one more day off and then have to work two days,,,, I have an ice pack on it now, but I do not think it helps at all for pain, I have been taking Tylenol .

Irish he said was having mild panic attacks and hyperventilate a bit of stress and not slowing down , I looked at him and ask if a good stiff drink would it and he grinned and said maybe, maybe not but take a mild sedative for a day or two and then try it He knew Ethan was having back surgery and any way things will settle down and the old me will pop up
I took one and I am not sleepy, Just take the edge off

Never knew stress could do that we shall see , Just so Ethan is ok nothing else matters. Not right now any way

Rosie, I think you have talked about your DGD before and her having her friend over a lot. I do think you even mentioned that the mom of this gal doesn't even check on her all day long either. I surely would be doing a lot of complaining than too. We are used of being alone now for so long that I wouldn't want all of that loud noise either... Oh it will soooo nice when school starts in ONE week LOLOL

I was just trying to clean my shower door, when my granddaughter and a friend of hers, came in hollering and laughing, (well maybe not hollering) but being very Loud!!! I thought I was going to be alone for a while, so I could get the darn shower in my bathroom cleaned, it needs it very very bad, and the cracks and creases are very hard to clean, and it is not an easy job to do right now, especially the way my knee is as I can't get on my knee. emoticon It makes it hurt!!!

So, I came out here to my living room and turned on my TV and now the girls have gone outside. This friend of hers is over here Everyday and most of the time, All Day Long, I am just getting Tired of it, seems as if she does not know enough to Stay away from here once in a while, geez.... This girl is an African American and was/is Adopted by White couple who have some other younger kids as well.

Sorry to Complain so much. emoticon

You maybe can go to your Start Page and find things that you are looking for. Or, I just saw on the team page we are on, if you go up to the top and on the right hand side, it says Sparkpeople today or something like that it brings up a lot of things, but, looks like we have to go to our start page now for spinning the wheel. emoticon

I like this format because it is easier to read BUT I wish they would quit messing up everything else. How do all of you get to this page???? First, they had everything on the right hand column below their precious advertisements ..no matter what page you were on all you had to do was go the right hand side and find the link and click. THEN, they changed it to only a couple of pages. NOW, all I find is their ads and nothing else. So, to get here today...I had to click Today on Spark....then Quick Links,, then Spark Favorites and Fun Loving....ENOUGH already!!!! I liked the original...... look over no matter what page I was on and could click on My favorite page.

That is my venting today. Sunny, but 57 degrees..got to get in gear.

Talk tonight, Margie

Kirby, Hope the doctor can tell you what to do. Let us know how you are. Glad you walked 2x with Vicki, was it a hot day?? Take care.
Andrea, I know it is hot, but please put your clothes on.....LOL......(off the line??) funny.....made us all laugh.
I like the new format here too for Spark. I am still having problems with my messages vanishing at time though after I type 2-3 sentences, have to redo.....frustrating.....maybe it is my chromebook??
Off to Silver Sneakers class this morning and then home to pay some bills, SS day for me.
See you later. hugs, Ei

Well, we made it through this hot and humid weather yesterday. It seemed like the people were just dragging along going into Walmart. Boy, I bet these same people were really booking it last winter when it was so dang cold LOL...How we move so different in different kinds of weather.

thanks Margie will check into that sounds like something she may like , I knew her mom and she was a nice lady a little dingy but nice . The funeral was flowers omitted so that is why I thought something she could keep would be just right fior her

I had to go back and read the "line" about taking the clothes off. I almost missed reading the "off the line". emoticon

Didn't walk on the gazelle but walked 2 miles " just around" but I mowed the yard this evening and that took 1 1/2 hrs. I didn't realize it was so high. All I know, my eyes are so blurry...worried me for a few minutes until dh looked at them and said they were red and I have "gook" in the corners. Besides, my allergy pill this morning, I took a Benadryl when I started to mow and just now took another one. Anxious to see if it makes me sleepy, they usually don't.

Talk tomorrow, Margie

msk...I close friend got me a framed poem for my moms funeral. It is about a 8x10, decorative gold and white frame, the top half had a pretty picture of a garden and the bottom half had the poem. The picture of the garden could be taken out. I replaced with a pic of my mom and dad. I loved it so much when my nephew died a month later, I got one for my aunt. My nephews wife had died a few yrs. before. So, I went ahead and put a pic of my nephew and his wife in the frame and gave it to my aunt. It was a black and gold decorative frame with a light green paper. I found it at the flower shop for $29.95. They had all kinds, different scenes with different poems. Maybe, something like that????

emoticon Andrea, Glad you had a nice little vacation and enjoyed the water. I am sorry though to hear you broke your finger, how awful. Bet you are in pain. All the best and I do hope it heals quickly. emoticon
DH will have to help you with things. Dogs can be rambunkous and things just happen.
Kirby, Enjoy some time with Harley today. emoticon
Went to Silver sneakers, then home ate lunch and off to the Dentist. All was well with my 6 m checkup. thank goodness.
Went to visit my uncle (who is 90) today. He is doing well after his broken arm and rehab helped him. He is glad to be back home. He was never married, so all of us cousins (at least 20) do go and help out with him. My cousin today goes every two weeks and does his pills for him into containers. She also organizes his bills and he writes the check out. Thank goodness he has the nieces and nephews to help him. emoticon
Well, got to think about supper, so will see you all later. Hot here 91 actually today.
Hugs, Ei

Wow, this site sure has changed. Like some of the other team sites, now.

Back from the trip and it went well. Brother had an eye appointment. We ran into some rain on the way back. But, as we got closer to home, it quit and turned out nice so far. It had already rained here.

I love the new format..it is so bright and easy to see.
I was walking the dog, and had the leash in my left hand. When Emmy saw another dog, she started to run, and I let go of the leash, and the strap, ran across my ring finger. I can hardly believe something, as simple as that, would break my finger.
I'm finally going to do a few things here. It will be fun, with my finger in a splint, and my left hand, is my dominant one.
DH will have to wash the dishes, and I'll dry. I don't like getting this thing wet..it does take time to dry.
It is going to be a hot one here, but no complaints. emoticon Our school, doesn't start until Sept. 2nd. Have a good one, Andrea

Hi ladies,
Just wanted to say, that we are back from such a beautiful 3 days at the cottage. We spent most of the time, in the water. emoticon The lake was a bit nippy, but once we were in, it was lovely.
Our friends went blueberry picking and got a 4 quart basket and an ice cream container full. (in an hour) I couldn't go; it turns out that my finger is broken. I got a splint on it, Friday morning, before we left.
Margie, when I went to the hospital, with my requisition, I was called to window C..in 5 minutes. I went down to the waiting room, and there were 9 people there. All in all, I was called, x-rayed and out, in 15 minutes. I really couldn't complain, about that. Some of the people there, were there for mammograms, etc. so wouldn't be waiting for the same x-ray equipment, as I was.
My shoulder pain, is really bad, now. The cortisone, only lasted 2 months. I'm going to phone the Dr. and see what they can do for me.
I will look at the thread, later. I must do some laundry, etc. Do have a good day. It is another nice one here. emoticon Andrea

Most likely will close in next wk or two. If the weather is hot, they stay open longer. emoticon Off to church and then not much else today. Meeting tonight with my group friends. Getting paperwork ready for my bill paying next week. Plan on reading my book later. emoticon Merri, Love your photo? Is this your son? Well, I wonder if you want to quit that team or just send them Spark mail, which is private. Anyway, hope she goes away. Evil person. emoticon Frances, I am reading The Blessings, now. About a Irish-American family in Philly. My oldest dd recommended to me. Have two others here also, but have not had too much time to read lately. Miss it when I cannot read often. Well, Enjoy the Sunday all. Keep active and eat healthy. We can do it. emoticon emoticon hugs, Ei

Frances, I would think if this mean person would actually threaten someone, than Coach Jen would really find out who this person is. I know this person has been around for sometime now. Lurking on this one 50 site. This is the third time now she has said things to me personally.

She has gone after this one sweet lady who I think lives in Ireland. Some place where they talk a little different than we do. This mean person posts early in the morning and of course places like Ireland are ahead of us in time. Like my DS in Afghanistan is 9 1/2 hours ahead of us.

So, one time when this nasty gal posted something about Rhonda it was very early in the morning and Rhonda seen it and she said it upset her so much that she really thought she was having a heart attack...

Coach Jen got the post deleted before most of us seen it...So sad that someone has nothing better to do than bully others....

We are all assuming this person is female? Do you know that for certain, Merri - maybe an earlier message indicated it? Also, I wonder if he/she lives in Wisconsin or has some other ties to the area? Has he/she ever said anything that would imply she might know you personally? If so, I would go further and contact the authorities.

Yes, a good "hacker" will be able to trace her through her service provider. I hope someone does that and exposes her real identity! Nasty.

Well, I did all my To-Do's today. Now I am planning to settle in with my new audio book and my knitting. Moving ahead...

Ei, Only Coach Jen can delete her message. I don't know when she is going to come and say something once again. It was now on Aug 5th and today. She seems to have a problem with me being in WI tho too.

I have a hunch either my son or grandson can find a way to get to her computer some way. She keeps changing her email address and her user name. She never has a Sparks page nor any other info at all.

There is one other lady on the 50th site too that this gal really wrote some really hurtful things. It almost sent this lady to the ER as she just couldn't even breath after reading what this mean lady had posted.....So evil so sad...Coach Jen took the post down before we all seen it tho...Maybe for the best for all of us
