Dee, so sorry to hear about the cut on your arm. Glad your friend is a nurse and was able to clean it up real good. That would be a location that would make it hard to see very well. I am praying that it does not get infected. Also praying for all your other requests.

Heidi. so glad that this death has brought the schools closer together. We do not know God's plan. We do not know how sad this young man was and how much he missed his dad. Only God knows those things. If good can come if it then that at least brings some relief. The senseless shooting of police officers is troubling to me and many. In my opinion Obama created this by sticking up 100% for the young man who was killed in Missouri last year and even paying for his funeral. Things have escalated out of control ever since.

Julie, I am going to Omaha over the weekend. I am so far behind with everything but I really want to update my prayer requests before you delete so keep reminding me and I will get to it as soon as I can.

Love you all, Vicki

Happy Friday!!!!!
Dee hope it heals quickly.
This weekend we plan on cleaning this house and getting rid if clutter. I am going to work on reorganizing our ETSY shops. Church in Sunday. Will have to start washing my hair and ironing on Saturday night so we can make the 8:20 service. Monday is Ds's 19th birthday. Not sure yet what we will do.
Three week until my first craft show if the season. Yay!!!!!! I have 4-5 I am going to do this year. Still deciding in the 5th one.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Was going to go to the football game tonight but heat and humidity will not be good today. An it will be a sad one tonight as both teams will honor Mason. He played middle school football with some of the team member from the other team. And it will be a packed house I am sure. It is at the other school. So I will stay home and keep up with it on Twitter and FB.

Good morning!
Thank you Vicki. Several of our high schools had prayer circles this morning before school. Last night the middle school he played for took his jersey on the field in honor of him. The overwhelming impact this young man left on his friends, team mates, teachers, and complete strangers is unbelievable. You can see God working in ways that are amazing. The teenagers who are coming closer to God, asking questions are so amazing too. One posted a question on the info page about if the 3000 plus life's he has touched are all Christians can our lived ones see us in Heaven and can we still feel them with us on earth?
We may never understand why things happen like they do but if this is the impact that this tragedy has on this many people I don't need to understand because I am seeing first hand what God is doing . His funeral will not be until the 12th. I know this is Labor Day weekend and they have many family members who will need to travel here from all over.
I sent the football coach a message yesterday to let him know our family is praying for then and everyone else. He wrote back and said they really need the prayers right now as a team. Tomorrow's game will be packed I am sure even though it is at another school.
Someone has also challenged everyone to do 22 acts of kindness. That was Mason's football jersey number. The t-shirts one if the teachers designed has the number 22 on it and has 22 reasons to live inside the number. Mason's are being donated and 8 people will be receiving them. That is so awesome.

This week has been a tough one with what is going on. Fifteen year old Mason passed away earlier this afternoon. The test showed no brain activity. His mom and sister is donating his organs and will go to 8 people. Please keep them in your prayers along with the Siegel high Stars students, football team, teachers and others. The football team has never had to deal with this with one of their players. The coach has never had to deal with this as a coach. This will be yet another funeral ds will be attending.

Vicki- yes dd is going to visit my parents for a couple of days then stay at the beach with a friend, come back then go to Boston to visit dh's dad.

Any update on Alice's son?

Julie, congrats on hubby. If I don't get on please don't delete mine. It makes it easier if I can copy & paste and then make changes or I will forget something. I do have a few changes but a lot is the same.

Heidi, continued prayers. Is your dd going to visit your mom in Florida? Have your kids not started College yet? Our schools went back Aug 12 and Colleges started mostly last week here.

Erika, so glad you are popping in. I need to check with you to see if you got your order and how you are doing? I always remember in the middle of the night. Lol

Praying for Alice's son also. For those who don't know, he has Guillian Barre's Syndrome. Can leave lasting effects if not found and treated soon enough, like paralysis and muscle control.

Hugs & Prayers, Vicki

Julie when I can gt to the computer tomorrow I need to add some things. Just got word that a middle school students was air lifted after a head injury and stopped breathing during the middle school football game tonight. DS also went to school with his brother. Siegel families need lots of prayer this week. Been a tough week.

Thanks Erika. I can't even imagine what his mom is going through. DS is up at the school again tonight for another prayer vigil. It has been a very long week so far for 2 high schools here. And the elementary school his mom works at. I fund myself checking the FB page for updates and waking up praying for him and Alice's son.

Heidi - praying he survives. Vicki - I'm worried about our policemen and our country. So sad what is happening. I'm also sad about what ISIS is doing to historical relics.
Makes it hard to stay positive and be full of joy.

Please keep praying for a miracle for Mason. They are slowly withdrawing the meds to bring him out of a coma. It is not looking good at the moment. The family is having to make some very difficult decisions. If he passes away this will make the 2nd person in a year that DS knows that has committed suicide:( only God can make this miracle happen.

Hubby has lost seven pounds since the 20th - his doctor appt. So happy for him! He does not want me to mention all of that on Facebook but I wanted to mention it in here! emoticon We are both logging our food every day! He uses My Fitness Pal and I use Spark. He got me a purple Fitbit for my wrist and he is going to use my old Fitbit. I am so happy that he has decided to take charge of his health and do something! Thank you all for the prayers for him!

Do any of you have prayer updates for me? It is almost Wednesday again. Please PM those to me!

Good morning.
Thank you ladies for praying. They have put Mason in a self induced coma hoping his body will fight this. They can't do anything else right now. I just don't understand kids these days. His dad committed suicide 2 years ago and it was the anniversary of his death. I also heard he was hanging with the wrong crowd outside of school and had just been allowed back on the football team after being suspended for getting in trouble.
And these senseless killings of police officers need to quit. It is getting ridiculous. Yesterday there were 6 bomb threats at schools around Middle TN. People have just gone crazy.

I am thankful I am able to work at home. I do to have to be out in rush hour traffic when people get mad because it is slow. I watch around me hen I do go out. I don't take the kids out anymore unless some of my neighbors are home.

I am loonking forward to a 3 day weekend!!!!! Ds's birthday is Monday and he wants to go to breakfast. Dd leaves Friday for Florida comes back next week then leaves for Ma. To see Fil for a few days.
No big plans for this weekend.

Heidi, I said some prayers today and hoping the young man is holding on and God will give him another chance. When will all of this stop. It all makes me so very sad.

It is also so very sad that our Country lost 8 good officers in the last week or so. When did it become that a normal citizen has more authority than an officer. This world is not praying enough and not living Godly lives. As more things are being done that are not pleasing to God the world will continue to go downhill. I truly believe that the end times are near because too many unnatural and unGodly things are happening each day.

Hope everyone tries to have a good week.

Love you all so very much!!

Good morning!!!!
Vicki- DS went to the prayer vigil last night. They even had the news there. He said it was the 2nd anniversary of his dad's death and he thinks h was trying to commit suicide. His mom is a fourth grade teacher. Coach said he is moving his extremities some so that is a good sign. But still in critical condition. So sad what these kids do these days. It is good to see other schools/ teams com together and put the rivalry away and just e there for one another. We have had several losses at such young ages in the last few years. I think my kids have gone to more funerals than I have my whole life. So sad.

Happy Monday everyone!!!!!!!! The humidity is back. Guess it wasn't done with us yet. lol. It sure was nice last week.

Please pray for a young man who was shot in tbe head last night. He is at Vanderbilt. He is a football player and a wrestler at the high school DS went to. He is 15. Do not know all the details but the news is saying they do not expect foul play. They are having a prayer vigil tonight at the high school.

Erika, that is fantastic!! I am so happy for you and Mike. Your pictures always seem to show a happy couple. Our Church does Marriage Encounters that I'm sure are similar to what you did and we have another weekend that is for bad marriages who are suffering. I want to say that is called. Restoration, or something like that. So important to keep Marriage alive and well. Glad you are not wrecking havoc on the East Coast. Just stay calm and it will all be over very soon.

Hello to all, Vicki

Julie- I just told dd we need to make some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and then I see a pumpkin icon onn your post. Lol we have had Fall like weather all last week. However, the humidity decided it wasn't done with us yet and reappeared today.
Looks like Erika will not be as big of a threat to Florida like they thought at first. Good news as we know people in the Miami area and on the Gulf Coast... So maybe just lots of rain or Florida.. That is one thing I do not miss living on the coast is the storms.

Can you believe I went to JoAnn's today and had some great coupons but did not buy one thing!!!!! But made up for it at Hobby Lobby. Lol.

Dee- I need to clean out closets here.

Going to watch more NCIS then call it a night. Need to make sure I get up early to be at church at 8:20 for service.

Hi ladies. I'm playing the timer game today. I set a timer for x minutes to work on a project. (Now I'm on SP time). Then I'll set the timer for x minutes to clean the bedroom and put away all the laundry, then x minutes to work on my scrapbook, etc. It helps me stay focused and since its a "game" all the chores don't seem so much so. emoticon

And on the subject of LOH. I wanted to share a "blessing". My DH and I had a rough year in fact all 7 have been so which is why I was drawn to this group to begin with. Well, earlier this year, when things were looking bleak, we went to a marriage retreat called "Weekend to Remember." It was transformational and I believe a modern day miracle occurred. Its like we hit the "reset" button and are starting over with a renewed commitment to God and each other. Just wanted to share because it is held all over the country. They even have a special information for 2nd marriages people, engaged or newlyweds. Hope you can spread the word... emoticon

Enjoy your weekend. emoticon

Hi Friends,
Been a busy day here. I am 100% over what ever it was yesterday! ;) Today has just been super busy and now I am "dead dog tired" but it has been a good day! I will catch up tomorrow!!

Julie thanks for the prayer requests list again!! You are so faithful to keep up with it!!
I see I had a typo in mine but guess everyone can figure out the *me* should be *be*. :-)

Dee hope your projects are going well!

Creative it is another hump day! Tomorrow should be a day to get some projects done. I have a couple pair of baby girl socks to make. I did get Aunt Izzy's Grandma's skirt done. Didn't have a pattern to make it so had to "remake" it several times and adjust the "pattern" as I went. So now I have a pattern to make more if she still wants me to do that. ;-)

Hugs to all and Good Night!

Erika hope you do better than I am. I don't feel very well this morning. Not sure what it is but guess exercise is probably not the best thing to be doing.

Dee thanks for the prayers.

Dogs and Baby are napping sounds like a good idea to me too! ;-)

Hi all - trying to get back into my SP routine. After working so hard to get weight off over 2 years, this last year of travel has put it back on so I'm starting over. Hope my pink drink arrives soon so I can see if that helps my arthritis! Great to see all of you here and hope I don't get confused by new names ;-) My oldest DS returned from China and is looking for a job. Next 2 are back in college this week and youngest in LPN school - living with her mom. I fixed my fitbit and started wearing it today, joined a boxing club 2 weeks ago and have gone 6 times and started tracking my 8 hrs sleep and 8 hrs water. emoticon Moonstream

Hello Dear Friends,
LOL I am going to have a long list of names that this group knows me by!! LOL I don't mind at all if you call me Gracie. Thanks Dee!! You are a Sweetheart!! Hope your baby sweater project is going well. Princess has been working on a little girls hat and it isn't turning out to be a little girl size so she is having to get more measurements and try a new size needle and smaller thread instead of a baby yarn. She got the idea from pinterest but it was in Russian and only a video! ;-) She will get it, she isn't one to give up just like Dee!!

Vicki we need to send you more pics to your phone. It has been awhile since Princess has forwarded me pics. Her phone is so full of pics she can't take more pics at times and has to delete some (after she gets them onto her computer). Don't know what we will do when the 2nd baby is here!!
Yes, she is at 19.5 weeks so that is about half way! I know they count the time a bit differently than when I carried my babies. Full term used to be 42 weeks and now I think they say 40 or 39.
Hope the Paleo diet works for you. Sounds like it is pretty hard to stay on and you might have sugar withdrawl to deal with for a few weeks. What wonderful news that the pink drink has helped you especially with the arthritis!! Reducing pain is a wonderful result!!
Have a great time with the Grands!

Hi Creative!!

Off to do laundry and get ready to go shopping with the girls!! Looks like a fun day!!

Dee, I love calling Daddy's Girl Gracie. I also think it fits her very well.

So Gracie, I'm so glad things are going well for the baby. Is she about half way along now. I need to see Phizzy before he is not a baby any longer. Can't believe how much our Oliver is not a baby anymore. He doesn't talk very good yet but he keeps up with his sisters!!

I sent a message to Faylei on fb to let her know I could help if she needs any help. We are headed to Wichita to watch our grands this weekend. Will be back on Monday.

On another note, I am starting on a Paleo diet on Monday. I was accepted into a Christian lady's 21 day challenge group. She lost over 100 in less than a year. Sounds so simple but no sugar, no breads, no vegetables grown underground, no fruit :-( Have to keep carbs to under 20 grams and eat lots of protein. I have not lost on the Pink Drink but I am healthier. My arthritis pain is almost nonexistent and my cholesterol is normal. So I have benefited a lot just not in the area I would like to. It may be all the meds I am on so if this does not work then I will know it is that.

Hugs and Prayers to all, Vicki

Hi Sweet Ladies,
Faylei I too am so sorry you have had so many weeks of tough going. DH is right to try to get all those things in order for his Aunt. It is so very hard but will be so much harder if it isn't done and cost so much more. A lady from our bank came to the house when Mom was bedridden and was able to get something notarized. Some people will go out of their way to help in times of trouble like this. Praying for you all!
Agree it is not fun being the GrownUp!

Vicki so glad you live fairly close to Faylei considering the distance the rest of us are from her! How are you feeling?

Today, Princess and I were able to go to the sonogram with Photographer and Aunt Izzy!! New baby is growing, healthy and strong and such a mover like Phizzy!! We don't know for sure the gender yet but we do know the target due date is correct. So much fun watching that little one and holding older brother at the same time!
Have much sewing to do so am off to get busy!

Hope each of you has a wonderful weekend!

Faylei, I am so very sorry that your family has had such a rough summer. I will keep dh's dad in prayer. Cancer is so very ugly. If a will can even be hand written and he sign and date it with two witnesses that are not relatives and not included in the will it will be valid. Also it would be good if someone could get a quit claim deed typed up so he can deed the house to his sister. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I have some documents on my computer that I could type up for you if you will be going down there soon.

Hugs to all, Vicki

Hello and hugs to all! I declared it Fall today! Up went all the summer red, white and blue and Fall decor came out. I love Fall!

Dh's. Dad is not doing well if you would all please keep him in your prayers. He has cancer everywhere and I'm afraid it's worse vs better. He could barely chat for a few moments on the phone tonight w Dh.

Dh is also having to step in and urge/encourage they take action on concerns like making sure his aunt who lives w him is on his will to receive everything including the house they live in as well as get her on all bank accts ect. Up to date, they have not done any of that. No one wants to bring that stuff up. Uncomfortable... But his aunt who has pretty much forever lived w him will be in a huge bind if they don't do something and cover those bases. She too is going thru chemo and does not work nor does she drive. We feel so overwhelmed handling all of this for two sides of the family at the same time. My family's I've pretty much got complete now... Only a few loose threads. I think... Suddenly you wake up and you are A and THE grownup. I just wanna be a toys r us kid!! Lol!

Hello Friends!
Am looking forward to a nice day. Rain again today and the temp is in the 80s not the 100s! Having a girls fun day with crafting and getting some things done on the project list! ;-)

LA so glad you have that wonderful vacation to look forward to after this crazy work trip. Still sorry we missed you when you were so close to us!

Faylei we need to clean out the chest freezer in the garage too, but hopefully when it cools down a bit. ;-) It ended up that I didn't go grocery shopping as Phizzy took a nap so Princess went and I stayed with the sleeping babe! ;-)
Sorry the wire was the wrong type. Hope you can find what you need. I so love Hobby Lobby and am thankful there is one fairly close to us!

Dee congrats on the progress of that baby sweater!!

Off to get some laundry done! Hugs to you all!!

Dee- way to go!!!

Vicki - hello n hugs, how's your mouth feeling now?

Daddysgirl - did I see there's another grandbaby on the way when I was skimming through?

Hello and hugs to all ! Well, ended up at Walmart and Home Depot for bug n weed kill. My yard is out of control this year w all going on. Also was looking for ds some wire to make wire people sculptures for art. Picked up the wrong wire. This one breaks when you bend it. Guess we will try hobby lobby soon.

Ended up eating dinner out vs those pork chops I planned on. Very good Italian/Greek restaurant but my tummy is paying the price right now at 4 am.

Wishing everyone a great day!!!

Hello everyone!
Guess my cheeseburger late night dinner didn't sabatatage me as much as I figured it would. I'm down 2.8 lbs on day 3. Hooray! So far a perfect day today eating and drinking wise. Not sure about walking tonight though after breaking my toe the other night. Still pretty ouch and last night I shoved it into a feel pretty shoe. LOL! Didn't FEEL pretty though. LOL!

Working on cleaning house today. Love the smell of bleach. I know, I know. Lots of people hate it and there are better healthier things I should use. What are your suggestions if you use something healthier. I do still LOVE the smell of bleach clean though :)

OK, off and running to finish a bit of cleaning while kids are resting.
Breakfast - oatmeal,
Lunch- chicken, green beans, mixed fruit, water
Dinner- pork chops, watermellon, broccoli, unsweat tea.
Snack- nectarine.... YUM!!


AERO_NERDETTE- sounds like an AMAZING trip! Bet you were missing your other half though. Hugs and glad you are home and getting ready for vacation.

Daddy's girl- Grocery store... I need to organize my freezer BEFORE I go again. When we had our water line break and we moved everything from indoor to outside freezer.. it just all got SHOVED in. Guess I better get working on that next.

Vicki- Hello and hugs, Thought I was headed your way tonight but then the appt was cancelled. It is on our Kansas tour up and coming soon though if not before.

Hello, New Girls and Old Friends. It feels like a million years since I checked in here last. I just got back from a work trip this week (late Sunday night). I spent some time underway for ship systems testing, and came home with some great souvenirs. I picked up some rocks from the beach for my mom, sister, and myself when I went to *officially* stand on the west coast and put my feet in the Pacific. For my hubby and BIL (sis's hubby), I was able to grab a couple of 57mm shells that we fired during our weapons test (they're about the same size as a 1L "SmartWater" bottle, but made of brass). Boy, they're heavier than they looked lying on the deck (about 7.5 lbs each)! I got my dad a cap from the ship's store which has the cutter's name and hull number embroidered on it. Getting out to LA was easy, getting back to DC, not so much. I put the shell casings in the mail home, no questions asked (they were wrapped in a towel so they wouldn't bang together and make noise, and since they're expended, they aren't dangerous), and packed the rocks in my luggage. Since I decided to carry-on my bags for the trip home, TSA pulled my bags for extra checks because they couldn't tell what the rocks were based on the x-ray reading. Oy! I also got asked (more than once) how old I was by security agents because the snaps on my pants popped alerts on the metal detector. I'm thankful I don't look older than I am, but I'm a bit doubtful I look younger than 18 (at age 30).

So I started my trip home at 8 am (Pacific time) Saturday, planning to be home about 7 pm (Eastern time) that night. Everything went smoothly until I got to Dallas, and was waiting on my next flight to board. Since I had a couple of hours layover, I picked up a snack and some coffee and sat down to read, checking the board periodically to make sure I was still at the correct gate and my flight wasn't delayed. Everything looked great, sign read "on time"...until it was time to board, and they suddenly announced my flight was CANCELED! Apparently the FAA's air traffic management system that covers the DC region had an issue and went down, grounding any flights to DC, NYC, NJ, Philly, and Baltimore. Luckily, the attendant at the counter was able to get me a flight for the next afternoon, but it wasn't direct. No problem. I called A (completely in shock at the sudden cancellation and missing him, since we hadn't seen each other in a week) and my boss (since I was still on company time) to let them know I was stuck, and booked a hotel. I indulged in some whiskey and fried food at the hotel bar, then crashed for the night. I finally made it home, after relaying through Houston and praying a thunderstorm wouldn't delay me (it didn't, thankfully), around midnight Sunday, and practically fell into A's arms.

Now, it's Vacation Countdown 2015: only 13 days left! We are so ready for our trip home. E (sister) and C (her hubby) live on our way to the beach, in the same city with most of our friends, so we'll stop and stay with them for a couple of days on the way down. We'll probably visit A's parents on our way back, unless they're at the beach again (they have a camper and periodically take trips since they're retired). We also get to pick up our puppy, Leia! Since she's used to getting up early with my parents, she'll be the kick in the pants I need to get in a morning walk before work (and another one after).

I also wanted to chime in on the "Love Languages" thing. I haven't read the books, but I know that A and I are similar in that we both like quality time and deeds, but I'm more likely to get him a gift (even if it's something small, like his favorite flavor of Gatorade for after work). I also like touch more than he does, so we have "semi-designated cuddle time" before bed every night. We've started something new with our quality time: instead of just vegging out on the couch, we're doing a jigsaw puzzle together. It's fun to do something cooperative and constructive, even if we pick on each other a little bit. I'm sure we'll also start incorporating after-dinner walks with Leia when we get home from vacation, since she'll need to get some energy out before bed.

Apologies for the essay, but it's been so long! Hope everyone is having a great week!

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

Good to see you posting again, Faylei!! Yes even when things are in order it is so hard to do all that needs to be done. It is tough when having to do it all and the grief on top of it. Losing my Mom and Dad just 5 weeks apart made it all very difficult too and I told DH, "I get to go first!" Well we see where that got me!! ;-)

emoticon Everyone!

Gotta run to the grocery store today. Lots to do!

Hello and hugs to all. Late checking in but better late than never they say. LOL!

Family stress today, followed by a trip an hour away for a "P" event and then didn't make it to dinner til 9:30 which we ate while driving, led to a mcdonalds cheeseburger. LOL! I know, I COULD HAVE made the better choice to eat a salad while we were driving in the car.. but I didn't. Fiddle sticks! New day tomorrow. Yesterday was a no mess up day. Hopefully a no mess up day tomorrow.

Still a few things left to do to finish up all of my dad's "stuff". WOW, that's a lot to do. Note to self... make a list and make plans like he did to make it easier on who is left behind. He did that for us and I am SOOOO thankful. I can't imagine doing all this without the help he left us.

I need to finish my own paper work tomorrow too and order one book still for ds's homeschooling. We will start slow perhaps next week toward the end of the week. Or maybe not... LOVE homeschooling. LOL!

Hugs and love you all. emoticon
