Good morning.
Anjay- so glad you are having a good day. I pray it continues.

God is sooooooooo good!!!!! Sun came out yesterday, storms stayed away and we were able to get some good pictures. Ds got home a little after 2 this morning. I went to bed at 2:30 after dozing off and on on the couch. Woke up at 9:15.

Battling a headache today. Weather related. I was out in the wind yesterday and we did have a storm come through last night. Just drank a cupbif coffee so hopefully between that and motrin it will go away.

The sun is shining. It is windy but as much as I don't like wind I will take it with the sunshine. Pictures are at 5:30. D's changed groups since hi group was disorganized. So I am glad he is in a Group that has it together for today. He was a bit frustrated this morning.

Thanks Everyone for your condolences. I noticed I kept watching for her as I would work in the kitchen. She loved to be under our feet to be close. I will adjust again to just 1 dog. ;-)
DS is coming today with Benelli so that will really help Sebastian. He has just been in the dumps.

Anjay I so wish there was something I could do to help you. Sounds like Jared and his girlfriend are with you! I hope their visit lifts your spirits and brings you joy! Hugs to you Dear Lady!

Vicki love you Dear Friend!! How is Ed doing?

Creative looking forward to hearing all went perfect for prom night!

Good morning. Keep praying please on the weather. It looks a little better for today but still a chance of severe weather popping up. Hoping we can do outside pictures this afternoon.

Daddy's girl, I love a rainy day and don't even mind the storms. But today is not the day. Yesterday was a great day for the ones who had prom last night. I will be going to help with clean up from 3-6 tomorrow morning. Yep, I am crazy but knew today would be busy and I helped with clean up at dd' s prom an it wasn't too bad.
I cannot believe he will be graduating in a few weeks.

Daddy's Girl & Princess, so sorry for Kayla's passing. It is never easy to loose a dear friend. Praying for a peaceful death for Aunt Izzy's Grandfather. It is never, ever easy to loose a family member.

Anjay, does your Dr. know you are having these side effects. Does not sound good. The Dr. needs to know for sure and please know that we are always here for you. Praying for you.

Heidi, praying for your neighborhood and for prom tomorrow night.

Hugs & Prayers to all, Vicki

Hello Dear friends,
It has been another rainy day here! The answer to your many, many prayers for us for rain! Oh we are so blessed the rain is coming alone and without theatrics! DS Fireman is coming home tomorrow. Princess and I will keep Benelli for a couple weeks while he has a class and then will be home again for his long weekend.

We are enjoying the Anne Of Green Gables movies but the last one is a bit worrisome as it deals with WW1 and some of it's horrors. Life is a bit hard today. Aunt Izzy's Grandfather has been given just hours now. We know he will be with Jesus it is just hard to let go.

Anjay hope you don't have to stay on the medication long. Please know you are *not* alone and we are here for you.

Creative praying the storms will dissipate and prom night will be safe and fun.

Sorry I started this hours ago and hope I didn't forget too many things.

Hugs to you all!!

Good morning!

LA, at least you know you won't eat leftovers. That's half the battle, right? Knowing what doesn't work. emoticon Basics for a while might help you rest up. Then when you're tired of the basics, maybe you'll have energy to cook some on the weekends to prepare for the weekdays. Just talking out loud...this is how I operate with life anyway.

Dear precious Phizzy is 5 months old today!!! emoticon

Creative, I will pray about the weather for tomorrow!!

We have started a marathon with the 'Anne of Green Gables' series!!! We've made it to the middle of the 2nd movie. We'll have it done by tomorrow!!!

Happy Friday!
Princess

I wish it were that easy, Princess. A and I are terrible about eating leftovers (as in most leftovers go in the trash, because we never eat them). I hate wasting food, and he hates eating the same meals over and over. Maybe I should just take it back to basics and be boring with meals like quinoa, chicken, and broccoli that I can cook quickly, on-demand with no leftovers. I don't know how to get over the "weekend hump". Like I said in my blog, neither of us have had a health scare that requires drastic dietary change, so while we could stand to lose about 40 lbs each, we don't have a fire under our asses to get it done.

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

Daddysgirl- so sorry about Kayla. No they haven't caught the criminals yet. The boat ramp 1mile from me apparently has an armed robbery going on right now. Someone just said lots of cops headed that way.

Please pray for the weather on Saturday. It is prom night and there is an 80% chance of severe storms and that forcast has not budged

Hi Friends,
It is a slow day around here. Just a day to recuperate. We will miss Kayla but are so thankful we had her as long as we did and now we have Sebastian!

Vicki don't worry a bit. I felt badly that you didn't grasp that Aunt Izzy's Grandpa was/is doing so poorly. He is still with us but has never regained consciousness. We keep waiting to hear he has gone to meet Jesus face to face.

LA hope your allergies are better! I know it takes some time.

Creative hope they caught those guys. Praise the Lord for our officers that protect us and risk their own lives for our safety.

Hugs to you all!

LA, perhaps once a month cooking would be helpful? Teri has several pins on pinterest that have been very helpful to her and her family. I'm sure she'd share more if you have questions. It may be easiest to contact her through FB.

Wow Creative, I hope things are resolved soon!

Our beloved, faithful companion - Kayla passed away last night. She was really struggling yesterday. It was her 17th birthday. She was my little shadow and such a sweet dog. She was a beautiful Sheltie. We will miss her! emoticon

Never a dull moment. Yesterday a 17 year old attacked a high school football coach. The. Coach had to go to hospital with severe face injuries.Monday a middle school volleyball coach was arrested for raping a 16 year old. D's said the coach was creepy when he was at the middle school. Today a police chase going on in my neighborhood. A cop about took out my mailbox. They were chaising two trucks wanted in several break ins around here. They were seen scoping out houses in the neighborhood. Last I heard they lost them. Kids will be mad after nap cuz we are not going outside until I know it is clear. What week so far.

Thanks, Anjay. I probably won't be up to 100% until all this tree/grass pollen dies down sometime about the middle of July when it's so hot everything just burns to a crisp. Today's Earth Day, but since Earth is trying to kill me, I'll be staying indoors.

Allergies are making me miserable! I know what I'm allergic to, but I can't avoid it (damn pollen). I also seem to have a bit of appetite loss. Normally I'd eat a sandwich for lunch, but feeling so miserable makes me not want to eat at all. I made myself eat some hard-boiled eggs and part of a single-serve hummus & pretzel pack so I could take medication, but still miserable. Unfortunately, I can't really go home, because I'm trying to make up hours from taking off early a couple of days last week and I have a meeting all afternoon for document review.

Maybe third time will be a charm. Got kicked off twice with my post.

La that is cool. Never saw that button before. I tried to post one but of course my slow computer would not allow it and it kicked me off but at least I know I can add a picture to a post.

Daddy's Girl and Princess, I am so sorry that I misunderstood last week thinking that Grandfather was doing much better and breathing on hid own. I will pray that he is pain free and that God's will be done quickly so the family can see closure soon or a miracle. Hugs to all of you especially Aunt Izzy.

Dee, noticed you were gone a day or two, so glad you are back. How is your dad? Is dh sending out resumes to try to get a job closer to home? Thought of you when I saw a picture Teri posted of dogs with knitted items. I think it said, better run or she will continue making things or you (Or something like that) Hope you saw it. lol

Hugs & Prayers, Vicki

Hello Friends.
I have made a decision not to get on the computer until evening each day. I need to stay focused and get things done around the house when I have the most energy. It is helping and I see progress where I need to. Princess, Phizzy and I got a 2 mile walk in today and that was good for all of us! ;-)

Please pray for Aunt Izzy's Grandfather. He has not regained consciousness in more than 2 weeks now so the decision was made to take him off life support which happened about noon today. He is still with us but is being moved out of ICU and into his own room. They are not sure how long he will be there or if they will have to choose hospice to do long term care. It has been a long hard day here.

Vicki how nice of you to prepare food and spend so many hours with your in laws. These are hard roads to walk!

LA glad you had a nice weekend with A. Preparing for the work week is difficult when you just want to rest on the days off. Hard to balance it all for sure.

Off to log my exercise and nutrition.
Hugs to you all!

We had a great weekend...but we were lazy and remiss in meal prepping for this week. I really need to be more disciplined about it, but I'm not sure how to motivate myself into being better about getting meals for at least breakfast and lunch prepped ahead. I also wasn't able to get my tattoo since A's friend kind of flaked out on us. I'm going to visit a neighborhood parlor after work today to price out my design, talk to a couple of artists, and look at some portfolios. I really want this work done, but I have questions first; the tattoo parlor I'm looking at has been around for a really long time and has a great reputation, so I feel comfortable going there.

Vicki, I got the picture onto my message post by clicking the "Add an Image" button at the top of the text box (where you type your message). If you have a picture saved to your computer, you can add it to your post that way!

Woke up to rain this morning, and went through an endless cycle of "5 more minutes" until I finally rolled out of bed about 10 minutes to 7, and still not really wanting to get up. I guess I'll have to increase my caffeine dose to bust the funk caused by this rainy weather. Hope y'all have a great day!

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

So happy that Grandfather is doing well. Another miracle like Julie's dh's aunt. Sometimes quality of life gets so poor that you just have to put it in God's hands but God evidently has spoken in this issue.

We have been with mil all day. Brought up a lot of food. She is in good spirits but have not at all mentioned the pathology report. She still has deep red blood flowing into the bulbs but not too much. It is very clotted too. She sees the Oncologist on Tuesday and Surgeon on Wednesday. I have spoke with the other sister and sister in law to see about two of us each calling three of the other kids so after appts we are sure the kids all know what is going on before it gets out other ways.

Gotta run, love you all, Vicki

Hello Everyone,
Vicki so sorry about your Dmil. I agree fb is not the way to find out such information. So sorry it happened this way. I have heard others say it is the fastest way to tell everyone but I think it is too impersonal.
Hope you and DH get to go to Ireland. I used to want to travel far and wide. :-)

Princess thanks for the help and encouragement. We are making progress. Just slower than I would like. But that is life, slow and steady like the tortoise or the snail. But progress is progress, so will keep plugging along. ;-)

Hope to stop back in. I am trying to get on the computer just in the evenings. Just too much to do. ;-)
Hugs to you all!

Good Saturday morning!! We had some nice rain last night, it may continue today. So far it is a sunny day and BEAUTIFUL!!!

Aunt Izzy's Grandfather is stable. He is breathing more on his own. The respirator will be removed on Monday. The Dr. thinks he will manage on his own! He does have side effects from the stroke that are a struggle. Thank you for your prayers!

Hugs,
Princess

emoticon La!!! Hope you had a great dinner. First I want to know how you got your design on this post. I thought only the emoticons and print could go on here but leave it to an engineer to figure that out too. Lol I looked back at your design and I see the dove. I did not notice it before. Our faith also uses the dove as representative of the Holy Spirit. Very cool explanation too. I really really like the design a lot.

Heidi, so glad you got everything done and I bet you will keep getting graduation orders. Hope you got more sleep last night.

Anjay, my dh and I LOVE Irish music. He has Irish heritage and we hope to go to Ireland someday.

Say some prayers for my mil. She found out today that the second tumor the Dr found and tried to take out is cancerous and it was imbedded further down so he's not sure if he got it all. We will find out on Wednesday what this all means. It will definitely mean radiation (and that was not expected with having a full mastectomy) and stronger chemo. She's healing and this news did not help. Also it did not hit me too well that I found out about this on a fb post by my sil. Really think the family should have been notified before she posted the bad news.

Hugs and Prayers, Vicki

Hi Dear Friends,
Sorry I have been MIA. Life has been busier than usual around here. Getting some things done. Maybe one of these years I will have the house like I want it. Or will it need something else by then .. probably! LOL Baby Phizzy is getting so long and so active. Not crawling yet but sure doesn't lay still. He eats like a horse but guess he would considering he is moving so much. So many ways he reminds me of my DH. and that is bittersweet!

Hugs to all and hope to get regular at posting again too!

Vicki, I found that design in a Google search for Celtic heart knot designs. It was on someone's Etsy page for embroidery designs. Part of my heritage is Scots-Irish, and I've always loved the look of Celtic knot patterns. I picked it because the center portion resembles a simplified "dove" shape, like one that is often used to represent the Holy Spirit. The heart's knotted shape symbolizes the infinite love and support that my family and friends have given me during my life, and how we are all interconnected with each other.

A and I will be having dinner to celebrate my birthday tonight! I am now the age I thought was "grown up" when I was 5, but I don't feel any more grown up on the inside, though I am a bit taller and more maturely shaped now. It must be because everyone assumes I'm at least 5 years younger than I am (yay for good genes!).

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

Good morning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vicki- after I heard dd come home the storms started so that was why I couldn't go back to sleep. Sometimes after I have been asleep so many hours and I wake up, I have some trouble not going back to sleep. But most nights I sleep probably because I am so busy during the day. And if I fall asleep too early watching Tv then I don't sleep until it is time to get up. That is why I usually crochet while watching TV so I don't fall asleep too early. The cakes were done along with the chocolate on time. Delivered when we planned and they loved them. May have a graduation cake order from one of them.

Barbara- Love your new name!

Anjay- I really hope one day you can figure out what will help with your pain.

Well, off to get some things done while kids play.

HuggingJoy, I love your new name. Praying for Graham and his Company. I had a thought last night after you said every single one of them had to finish. What if one of them was seriously hurt over no fault of his own? Like a snake bite or something like that. Would the others just have to treat it and carry him to the end in order for all to make it. I know Eric's group made it and I pray that Graham's will too. Tell us a little more about this teaching job.

La, that is a cool design. Where did you find it? I say ouch. No needles for me.

Anjay, so sorry you are getting no relief. After a lot of thought I have requested to have my right shoulder and right hip looked at further. The focus has been that the pain in my shoulder and down the arm is due to the pinched c5 to c7 spinal cord with more blockage showing on the right side. The right hip has been thought to be bursitis. So next Tuesday I will have dye put into my system and later in the day I will have a scan of my right shoulder and right hip to see if there is anything else going on that could be taken care of.

Creative, hope you got the cakes done on time. Many swear that the Pink drink helps with sleep among many other things.

Hello to all, Vicki

Thank you for the prayers ladies! It is thunderstorms where they are. :( That is what they train for, so I know they will handle it well. I got what will be my last letter from him yesterday. He said out off 66 RCTs only 13 got a perfect score on the physical test. He was one of them!

AERO- I can not see myself with a tattoo but I have nothing against them. That is a nice design. Sorry the MIL was cranky. LOL I think you did well.

Vicki- I agree all kids should be treated equally. It is not a childs fault that parents split up. remarry, etc.

Hugs to all, Barbara

This is the image for my tattoo design; I'm going to have the artist just do the darker outline parts in black and leave the inside (where the color is lighter in the photo) empty. It will fit in a 3-4 inch square size and be located on my upper back, between my shoulderblades (easy to cover for work). I'm getting it because I've put a lot of thought into it and kept the same image in mind for more than a year; actually getting it comes down to courage in the face of certain pain (and needles).

Vicki, I ended up not being able to take MIL to the salon because I forgot it was Easter and they were closed for the holiday (normally open on Sundays).

Keeping the boys of Mike Company in my thoughts. Good luck to them all!

Good morning. This waking up and taking forever to fall back to sleep is really getting old! Monday night I went to bed at 11, woke up at 1 and last time I looked at the clock it was after 3. Last night I heard dd come in about 2:20 then storms rolled in so almost 4 before falling back to sleep. Ughhhh! Still have one cake to finish and deliver by 10.

Barbara- congrats on teaching job. Will be praying for Graham and the others.

Hi everyone have prayed for Graham an his brothers,
Vicki how are you feeling,
Yes I am still taking the weekly treatments, bloodwork was again not encouraging, trying not to get discouraged, but we have so much going on just now, it is so difficult. But I have the opportunity to attend a Robin Marksworship concert o Friday evening, he is from Ireland and an a great worship singer, so looking forward to it. Wayne hopes t start prepping the roof tonight he is planning to frame over the existing roof as everytime we try to fix theleak it holds for a while then leaks again, so this is the easiest solution.
Have a great day everyone

Barbara, I am praying for Graham and his Company. I was tired after reading the first two items. Oh my. I remember when Eric did this. If my time is correct, they will get started in less than an hour from now until 8 AM Saturday. Hope he was able to sleep tonight. So very excited that you got the teaching job. I don't think any of us had any doubts!!! So glad you are healed and feeling so good.

GGB, praying for you. Glad the pain has subsided but often it is just hard to get comfortable in bed. So hope that the injection was the right decision and that your pain stays away and that you get some good sleep soon. Stay in touch because we care very, very much. Hugs!!

La, glad the time with mil is past. emoticon emoticon . Hope the spa treatment was a hit. I'm sure your answer was just fine. She shouldn't have asked but at least you didn't blurt, None of your beeswaxs Lol. mil are tricky sometimes. I love mine but you better never say anything even slightly negative about her babies or grands and you will get an earful. So unfair that my kids and grands are not nearly on the same level. (they are her steps) I fell all should be treated equal. So here I go stepping back, shutting my mouth with eyes wide open and smiling. (or something like that-these gals have a little ditty for things like this-I know Dominique knows it well lol) Happy Birthday tomorrow. Have a delicious dinner with A. Let us know what you get. I personally am not a big fan of tattoos but I have seen some in very good taste. My dil has a cute little fish with a bubble coming out of it's mouth on her ankle. I've seen some pretty butterfly's. The thing that really drives me crazy now is earring in the tongue, eyebrow, nose, hundreds on the ear etc. Wish these kids could really look at themselves and see how crazy they look. Many you can tell are actually in pain from it. Why or why.

Hello sweet Dee. Wish you lived closer to all of us. We could all use your help. Fingers crossed that I don't jinx you but unless you kept it from us, I think you have stayed pretty healthy this year in spite of all your snow and cold. How is your dad doing?

Hello Heidi, Julie, Teri, Daddy's Girl and Princess, hope you are all having a great week!! Hugs to all.

Hugs and Prayers to all my sweet sisters, Vicki
