what a difference a day makes......cloudy gray and chilly. By normal standards a 42 degree Feb. morning would be wonderful, but we are spoiled by preceeding days.

Brenda....So happy to hear Lisa is doing well, I think of her so often! Good for both of you to meet up again! Can't believe Andreas due date is sneaking up quickly, then DIL shortly after that, right? Jen was just here til Monday morning but it was so great having her HOME, there is just something different when she is HERE. I will be going back to see her mid March and staying possibly till first part of April. I am working hard on the soul healing, it has really been a process for me. I have been setting some boundaries and expectations and focusing on me. Not in a selfish way, I just get so wrapped up in kids and helping them and making their life easier that I sometimes lose my path or it joins theirs in an unexpected way.Then I get SOOO bent out of shape and frustrated when the "other side" does nothing. Does that make sense? Have been processing a lot and am taking baby steps forward....some days I meet resistance from others but am figuring it out as I go. It is my baggage, I help and involve because I WANT TO and ENJOY but need to figure out how not to be frustrated when other side is treated differently, different "rules and expectations" Are you enjoying the home time verses being at work every day?. I would say retired, ha ha but that is such a loaded word. I honestly work harder now than I did with a full time (paying) job!
Kids have a couple houses picked out, new construction, so just waiting till a few loose ends are tied up. I encourage them to wait a bit, sell one of the Philly houses and get thru the Wharton graduation in May. Way to much going on! (so much for a quiet year, I planned emoticon )

Dianne...Is it still Winter up there? My dang daylilies are up about 3 inches and have buds on a couple of the lilac bushes, bad news there......in the 20's over the weekend! Will you guys be an early Spring (field work) or no signs yet? Think we will be early but having said that out loud we will probably get a late April snowstorm,LOL

Kare.....How are you doing this week? Any plans to see your daughter soon? Is Dwayne doing better?

Samantha, Cheryl...Hope your week is going well!

DaisyChick....do you live in a larger city where there are employment options for going back part time in the school or library system. Know some of the smaller schools have such limited budgets. Grandson is participating in a library sponsored event, 1000 books before kindergarten. of course this is books read to them, and at every 100 I think they get a little reward sticker or something. He is a little bookworm so perfect for him! What are some of your favorite childrens books?

have to finish up some bookwork for rentals, and pay a couple bills so better get moving so I don't miss the mailman!

Have a peaceful day!

Yes I do love Kindergarten. Wouldn't mind doing something not fulltime in classroom. Would love library too since it's my minor. Hoping to buy an elliptical soon to help husband join weight loss train.

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you all....

Lisa and I had a fabulous weekend.....Friday we just made dinner had a few drinks and visited...Saturday we took our trip to the beach (got my very first speeding ticket trying to hurry to get Aiyden to the bathroom...lol ) Sunday we took her to the river walk by us which is just a beautiful walking path....then up to a store called 201 Central...you can find any and every kind of beer, wine and foods there...she loved it!!!! She headed back home first thing Monday morning ....got home to grey skies...we still had beautiful blue here.

We had a little rain come thru last night but it's gone already and now it's nice out...little cloudy buy nice....our temps have been great...70's pushing 80's soon....I'm loving it!!!!

Jeanette....YEAH for having family around I know that is SO good for your soul.....are you feeling a little better with where life is taking you these days? How long will Jenn be there? Have they found a house yet?


Dianne....the wedding colors sound so pretty....have you started looking at dresses yet?? What color will you wear?

Kare....sounds like quite the ordeal with Dwayne and the hospital ...I bet it felt good to get into your own bed!!!! When will they have answers if any?

Cori.....hope Florida is still treating you great!!! We'll have to take a trip that direction one day and come say hi...we're hoping for Disney next year again.

Daisy....I love working with the younger kids ...I was a teacher's assistant in a kindergarten class for 5 years along with be a hairstylist too....I was divorced at that time so worked the 2 jobs to make ends meet:) We just recently moved to SC from Ohio so now I'm staying home and caring for my grandbabies....we have 2 more Granddaughters coming in March...that will be #17 & #18 for us.

Samantha....your blended family sounds a lot like ours....Love having such a large family.

Cheryl..welcome.....I've been on the weightloss roller coaster for years....I have been with Spark for a long time and this little group have become like family to me.....I had lost and then gained and last January I started a new program called Omnitrition and lost 82 lbs...I still have about 20-30 I'd like to lose....so I'll be starting again this coming weekend....You will LOVE the support you find here.

This weekend we're supposed to go visit Jim's uncle Bill...but now Jim might have to go to Baltimore for work so we're in limbo until tomorrow sometime. His Uncle is only an hour and a half from here....we don't want to be very far from home since Andrea's baby is due March 13th but this is her third so ofcourse she could go any time.

Hello to anyone checking in ...I hope you're all doing great!!!

Hugs,
Brenda

Good morning
Last of the "record breaking temperature" days so heading back outdoors soon. Got up at 4, had coffee with DH before he left to work at new property. They are taking huge plate glass windows out and putting new energy efficient smaller ones in. I worked at the other house yesterday and loaded the last of upstairs furniture, have a few things to organize today then will haul the load to auction house tomorrow. That property is moving along nicely, we have painted interior, have cupboards ordered, tile for floor and tub/showers picked out and floor prepped for installation, new shower enclosure is built and tub in other bath installed. It is so exciting to see it all taking shape!!

Daisy....how fun being involved with the education of all those little kids! My grandson is approaching 4 ( May) and I love watching him learn and absorb, he counts to 40 and is starting to read a bit, spells his name and some basic words. I am just constantly amazed by how much a young child can be taught! Kids are so curious and eager to learn when young!
How are you doing this week with food intake and water?

Cheryl.....so sorry to hear of the death of your family member! Grieving takes its toll on our mental and physical health. I lost my 24 year old nephew in October then my best friend died in November from lung cancer. I am just starting to come out of the funk! take care of yourself, and don't give up on your goal! We are here to help if we can. Great place to vent!

Brenda....How are grandbabies doing? avoiding all the flu crap going around? Hope your week is going well!

gotta run, dog barking.. someone pulling in drive
have a blessed day everyone!!

good afternoon,
I did not follow any sort of exercise or diet plan this weekend. I had a death in the family and was out of town. getting a meal where you can is not a time to be choosy. and eating at restaurants ordering what you believe to be healthy is hit or miss you really don't know how it is cooked and with what, plus my anxiety wants to be fed. emoticon
I haven't made any goals I haven't weighed in. since I have been home I have mostly been sleeping.
will do better soon.

Good morning....
had a great "family weekend" 2 of 3 children here and grandbabies. was in mid 70's so we played outdoors for 2 days. Closest thing we did to work was cut down a tree and clean it up.
Went for 4 wheeler ride to the back of the timber ( my favorite spot) grilled steaks and made beautiful arugula and spinach salads with lots of fresh veggies. Unfortunately time flew and everybody back to work and their own homes, but no complaints a weekend is better than no days!!

Samantha...good job resisting that mint ding dong!! believe it or not further down the journey road you will question how something like that ever tempted you. There is no food that taste as good as being a healthy weight FEELS!

Daisy...how fun to have little children around, I miss it so much! My youngest baby is 30!
(I am one of the oldest here, never left after I turned 50) emoticon
What grade/subject did you teach?

Cheryl...How did your weekend go? Did you set some small goals and achieve? Mine was to improve my water and veggie intake! This week I am working on 10000 steps per day!
The hardest part of this journey is sometimes taking time to do things for yourself! It was definitely part of the "finding myself" again. Just start small and keep moving forward!!

Kare....How did the weekend go for Dwayne? Hope the doctors were able to resolve his seizures, or alleviate the frequency. You are such an amazingly strong woman! with all going on in your life how are you doing taking care of yourself? When I get stressed in life, my mental health is the first thing to go because I stop doing what is good for me, including exercise and eating well,,,,

Dianne....What are you working on for projects (repurpose)? Bet you girls enjoyed your lunch together and wedding shopping!

Brenda... How was your weekend getaway to the beach, did you get to see Lisa? Gosh I wish she would come back here! Where does your next adventure take you?

Cori...Hope you and Mike are doing well, and your health is in healing mode! Miss you!

Nettie, Tina, Denise...wishing you all blessings in life, I know I can speak for everyone, we miss you ladies!

Blessings
jeanette

Kare......((HUGS)) prayers and healing thoughts to Dwayne, and you. I hope they find what is causing the seizures and get it under control,

Dianne...oh I love blue and yellow, that will be sooo pretty for September wedding.
Hey just a thought on minister, when YDS got married at the winery, we actually located a chaplain on line. he met with us, gave us lots of options for wording of vows and verses. Watch for one in the close proximity to the wedding because some do charge travel time or mileage, but still a great option. good luck in your search!! Your trip in July sounds great!!! I have heard really good things about that area, don't forget to pack the camera!

Brenda,,, Excited for you that you get to see Lisa. Have fun at the beach!! Give her a big hug from me and Al. We miss you all!

Cherylanne.... Welcome!! You have found a great place for support on your weight loss journey. We are all in different stages in our journey, but started right where you are, seeking change and support from others with the same goal and mindset!

Samantha....Good job on your 8 pounds gone, keep moving and making good choices. Small steps add up to good things! welcome to our group.

I am taking the week off from other projects and getting things done at my house. Have been neglecting things here because of new properties this past year and I think that is where part of my stress is coming from. Today I tore my kitchen apart and cleaned from top to bottom, just have ceiling fans left, Did the bathroom yesterday, cleaning all cupboards and drawers as I go too. Did living room on Monday. tomorrow I head upstairs and hit guest bedroom (Jen coming home for weekend) Friday going to run errands and get haircut. Jen flies in late Friday and leaves early Monday, but thrilled she is here for 2 days! Weather is supposed to be beautiful, in the low 60's so hoping to get some outdoor time in!

How is everyone doing getting their water in each day?

sleep well ladies!

Welcome Cherylanne! I put on 30 lbs in the past 4 years and can happy say that this past year I have lost almost 30....it's a struggle! But I decided I needed to do this or me as my arthritis was getting bad and my cholesterol was too high....I got a good meal plan and I exercise for 3-45 minutes (pretty much) every day. Elliptical, bike and weights...different things every day so I don't get bored. You can do this!

Jeanette - Your getaway sounds so relaxing! Sometimes we need to just sit and think about what we want...we get so busy in our lives. Kids' wedding is September 2 in Bismarck - her colors are blue and sunflower yellow - for the reception to wants pokemons included in the decorations which was pretty easy to do - we have so many cute things it's hard to decided! Slowly things are getting settled - biggest thing is who is going to officiate! They cannot find a pastor - one option is Adrian is certified to marry people - somehow I'd feel better having a pastor but I we do have plan B if needed! We're hoping for an outdoor wedding but there is a church there that we can quick rent if the weather doesn't cooperate.

Guys are hauling wheat for a neighbor that pasted away a few months ago - his daughters do not live here but Don has been in contact with them and is helping them out with the farm. He was a widower and his equipment was old so not worth a whole lot..sad to see it just sit though as some of the tractors are worth something. I have a feeling if they decide to sell the homestead we may put in an offer. We are renting the land from them.

Planning our summer motorcycle trip - going with oldest DS and his wife to Glacier National Park - first week of July...not looking forward to the traffic but the timing works for them to take extra days over the holiday. Sent for info on the park as I always like to research where we're going and whats there to do. DH just shakes his head at me - but I said I will put off until May to start packing...lol...

Banana bread in the over so I'd better close or it'll be over done! Have a great evening!

Dianne

Hi, I am happily married. I have an adult son. I am doing my best to put one foot in front of the other to loose 80 pounds that I have gained over the last 7+ years. I just want to feel good and be able to do activities without struggling.
My plan is to control diet and begin to move.

Wow what a week and it's only Tuesday. Dwayne has had 3 seizures since Saturday so after talking to the neurologist today, he is probably going to the hospital on Thursday for the weekend for a video EEG. He's been on the waiting list but they have bumped him up. I am very disappointed that it's landing on the weekend he's supposed to go to respite, but what can you do? I'll know more tomorrow once the hospital calls with the details...

good morning,,,,
not sure where the days are going but time is flying! I flew home from Philly on the 30th, did taxes then DH and I headed South for 10 days. went to Mustang Island (near Corpus Christie) rented a small beach cottage and relaxed. Watched dolphins and ships, weather was phenomenal!, drank coffee and watched the sun rise and set from the same chair. We are taking some deep breaths and discussing what works and doesn't work for us. All we know it is going to be a year of great change for our families and need to find our place in that.

Brenda....Oh my gosh I can't believe it is nearing baby time and Aydens birthday is rapidly approaching too. Cannot believe the "boys" are going to be 4! Where have the years gone?
Kids will be moving to Texas, what a change that will be from PA, the plus is it will be 3 hours closer! We kind of checked out the area on way thru, they met us there and we did a little house shopping.

Kare....Oh my that is a long time without a weekend to yourself! ENJOY!!
How was Vegas, did you like it?? Glad Brian recovery is going well. We are having an odd winter here, much warmer than normal and little to no snow, as enjoyable as that makes it concerned about moisture for Spring crops.

Dianne....Glad you AZ trip was good! remind me when Hannah's wedding is, remember there was a cute theme you were working on but can't come up with time frame! Having survived 3 short planning time weddings I will tell you "it all will get done and be beautiful" relax and enjoy being the momma of the bride! Have fun!!

Cori......((HUGS)) I miss you!

Better get up and moving, have a few things I want to cross off the list today. Dh gone for a few hours so I need to be super productive with MY list!

have a great day.....

HAPPY VALENTINE"S DAY

love you girls!

Hi girls! So sorry about being gone for so long - time just gets away from me!

AZ was good - could have been warmer but we enjoyed our time away. Barrett Jackson was fun - so many cars! Lots of walking around. Stopped at many antique shops and some very cool coffee shops...toured the airplane boneyard in Tuscan..that was interesting. Was gone about 10 days...it was good to get home even though it was cold! They are saying warmer weather next week.

Helping DH with the new "car barn"...tonight - putting plywood on the walls and then "slat" board to hang tools. Looking so much better...we call it the boat barn right now as 2 sons have their boats in there!

Been busy trying to plan things for Hannah's wedding - slowly getting there! Some nights I wake up and start thinking of everything that needs to be done and then can't sleep - like how are we going to get all this done! But I know it'll be fine....

Have a great night and weekend! Hugs to everyone!

Dianne

Happy Thursday - wow it's been a long week. Freezing cold temperatures have made for a week of indoor recesses which means the kids are getting squirrelly. Supposed to start snowing tonight and warm up overnight so that means they will be outside for some fresh air tomorrow.

Brian is doing well after his surgery - not even any bruising. Dwayne is doing well, enjoying his work days. He is going next weekend for 2 nights for respite. It will be the first weekend I've had off in over 2 years and I am looking forward to it.

Brenda, I am jealous of your nice weather. I just came in from shovelling and now my toes are cold.

I hope you are all doing well. Trying to think of what to make for supper, when I am not hungry but everyone else is.

Take care
Kare

Brenda, very sorry to hear of the loss of your cousin. My thoughts are with you. Seems like everyone is sick these days with colds. Every kid I see in speech has the sniffles.

Brian had his sinus surgery yesterday and we got home just awhile ago. He's doing ok, just sore and tired. It was a long day with Dwayne and no help, but we made it through. He even slept well at the hotel, which was a bonus.

Back to -35C weather again. But at least it's not icy anymore. I don't mind the cold weather as long as the wind isn't too high.

Just doing some laundry and then have to go get some prescriptions filled for Brian. Going to leave Dwayne "babysitting his Dad" which he will love to do.

I hope you are all doing well.

Brenda, sending good vibes for your step dad. Hope everything goes well.

So many people lately with brain cancer - makes you wonder. We have a young man in grade 6 who battled this last year and is doing very well. He has some neurological after effects but considering how sick he was, he is doing amazing.

Just had my eyes examined today and very little change in the 5 years. I've been having a lot of headaches but I think this is more sinus based. Brian has sinus surgery next Wednesday - he's been waiting almost 3 years so I'm hoping this will help him feel a little better.

Weather here is really nice although we got rain on the weekend which is very unusual in January. Snowing tonight and supposed to get back to more seasonal temps this week.

I hope you are all doing well. Take care.

Hello everyone! Another cold day here but next week it will be in the 20's and 30's...of course when we're gone! But that's ok, then I won't worry as much about everyone here. Thursday night they are saying about 25-30 below but Monday 25 above which is perfect timing as we are working cows that day. Will take off Tuesday or Wednesday...we have the condo for the 20-27...Won't be really warm as we are in the mountains but will get down to Phoenix a few times to visit friends and family. Found out there is also a big gun show in Mesa the same weekend so I'm sure we'll hit that also. Me - I'm looking for flea markets!!

Brenda - my living room is looking a little bare also - but I guess I was ready! Love getting the space back! Your weight journey has been awesome! I've been jumping from 153-158....would really like to be 150 before we leave and hopefully stay under 160 when we get back! The resort has a nice weight room and we always do a lot of walking so I'm not really worried about it. When we travel we seem to eat less.

Jeanette - hope all is well with you and your family, think of you often.

Denise - big hugs girl...

Another 6 foot drift on the deck after yesterdays wind so I'd better go do some shoveling...it would be nice to see down the driveway again!

Well back to work and the frigid cold this week. Work has been going ok, lots of sick kids so I'm hoping to miss that treat.
The kids came home on Saturday and my parents came down for awhile and we had Christmas. Dwayne was quite excited because it was actually Ukrainian Christmas and he said it was like an extra holiday! Had a good visit and then enjoyed a quiet Sunday.
Brenda, you sure get a lot of visitors, it's nice your families are able to travel to see you.
Just heading off to bed, hope you are all doing well

Hi girls and Happy Tuesday to you all ...

We had a really nice visit with Jim's Dad & stepmom it was really cold while they were here so we couldn't really go do anything so we just kind of hung out and watched movies ..they got a lot of time with Aiyden & Adalyn so that was nice !

Our weather is getting better ...should be near 70 by Friday ...that makes me smile :)

We're going up to stay the night at our friends in NC Saturday they're the ones we used to come down from Ohio to visit ..we see them a lot but this time we're staying the night so we can have drinks and not worry about driving home.

I got all of our Christmas decorations down and put in storage ..feels naked in here now but glad to have our normal rooms back for now.

Well I just wanted to pop in and say hi ...hope you're all doing well and staying warm!!

Hugs,
Brenda

Hello and Happy Thursday to you all ...Happy New Year too

My sister and her boyfriend went back to Ohio on Sunday ...now Jim's Dad & Stepmom are coming Friday and staying until Monday ...so I've been busy cleaning and getting everything ready ...:)

Today I have to go get the van tax assessment done ..in SC you pay tax on your vehicle when you renew plates :/ pretty pricey but we get tax cuts in other areas so I guess it balances out .

We'll go grocery shopping later and then we'll be all set.

My weight loss is still doing good ...still between 159-164 planning on hitting 140 by spring !!

Dianne ....oh my the snow you're getting ...we could get 2 or 3 inches this weekend but it'll be gone by Sunday ..I can take that :). AZ sounds like just what you need !!!

Kare ...bet it was hard getting back to reality after Vegas ...sounds & looks like you had a great time !!

Jeanette...how's that new grand daughter doing ?? Are you getting lots of snow too?

Cori ...Happy New Year.... Any cold snaps heading your way ?

Denise .... think of you SO often ...hope you're doing ok ...(((HUGS)))

Hello to anyone else that might check in

Dianne, the pictures of your house and the snow were amazing! We didn't get as much snow this time, but lots of wind again. Another storm brewing up for later this week. Just hoping it waits until after Saturday so we can have Christmas with the kids.

Been watching what I eat and trying to get in 30 minutes of movement a day. Missed out today, tummy not happy, I'm freezing cold and just feel off. Back at it tomorrow.

I hope you are all doing well and staying warm.

Oh yeah...another 12 inch of snow....and wind...we can see grass in places in the yard but boy are the drifts high! Thank goodness we can still get down our driveway and our main road is a "priority" road so plowed almost right away...at least we can make it to town for coffee!

Selling bred heifers tomorrow so they are hauling them into town today - sale was post poned from last week, then again yesterday so I hope the buyers make it tomorrow. Highways are ok as far as ice, drifting out...long as they go slow Don said they'd be ok.

Other than that not much going on here - leaving around the 15th for AZ, looking forward to it! I think even Don is too! Got free lodging for 7 days - bad thing is it's about 3 hours from Scottsdale where the auction is. But it's in the mountains and we love to drive and see country. Looks like a nice resort..its in Pinetop AZ. Northeast of Phoenix...I actually think Don is planning on 2 weeks....fingers crossed!

Still going strong on my workouts...every morning...been maintaining around 155...hoping to lose 5 before we leave then if I can keep active and watch my eating I should still be ok when we get home.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Dianne

Happy New Years Everyone! May this be the start of a great year for all of us!

Dianne, we are under another special weather statement for tomorrow again. We have almost 70cm of snow already and calling for at least 10 more. Getting tired of all this snow already.

We stayed home last night and will do the same today. Brian is working so we will have a nice supper. The girls and my parents are coming next Saturday for a late Christmas celebration. Robyn is also bringing her Poppa Brian as her Grandma dies earlier last year and Poppa is all alone. I;m glad she feels comfortable to merge our 2 families..now I need to decide what to make for dinner.

I hope you all have a wonderful day with your friends and family!

Happy New Year girls!

Kare - glad you guys had a great time..looked like everyone was having fun. We are in for another one tonight and tomorrow - had planned on hauling bred heifers in today but the salebarn called and wants us to wait until tomorrow incase the sale is cancelled...hoping they will be wrong - saying 6-12 inches.

This past week we went to Wisconsin to see family. Former FIL is having radiation on cancer they found last month. He's 93 but doing ok so far. Was a good visit and roads were good. Stayed home last night, had an early supper to avoid the croweds.

Now it's time to clean house and get things put away. Leaving for AZ around the 15th...barret Jackson auction starts on the 14th and runs until the 22nd...got a condo for 7 days in the area..lots of friends in the area so we'll spend lots of time traveling and visiting but I told a lot of them that we'll see how much time we have.

Got a new surface pro (had points to use up) so struggling to learn how this thing works! But I did get logged into sparkpeople and that is a big plus! Have a wonderful weekend girls...love to all of you!

Belated Christmas greetings and Happy New Year to all you special ladies!

Sorry to be MIA but just wanted to enjoy the break with the family. We had a great time in Vegas, the weather was beautiful and we walked miles everyday. Took Dwayne to All Shook up, the Legends in concert and the Tournament of the kings, and he enjoyed them all. One evening Brian and I went on the high roller after Dwayne went to bed as he was exhausted. We usually went out for an hour after he went to sleep and strolled around, had a coffee and just enjoyed being out the two of us.

Plane was 2 hours late so it was after 2am when we got home this morning. By the time I got Dwayne into bed it was almost 4, so we are all a little tired today. Went and got some groceries and been doing laundry most of the day.

Dianne, we got a blizzard here Christmas night and got 22cm of snow on top of the 34cm a couple of weeks ago. Tonight we are under a heavy snowfall warning for up to 15cm. The city has done a great job of removing snow but they are still working at it..

JUst making some soup and biscuits for supper, everyone is too tired for much more. I'll see you all later

Hi girls and Merry Christmas....yes we got hit again with another blizzard....not much snow but lots of ice...who would have thought on Dec 25 it would be raining!! I mean a downpour! So we still have a house full...which is ok but our routine has sure been thrown a loop. And too old outside to do anything...think we are all getting stir crazy. Hopefully the highways will open tomorrow. DD Adrian and her boyfriend Ian did try to go home yesterday ...got 5 miles out and slid in the ditch - so we sent rescue out and they came back. Christmas was good for all of us...Don gave me my own cordless drills so know I can leave his alone and hopefully he'll leave mine alone! SIL gave me an old explosive box that someone from the airforce base had...very neat! Lots of other good things too....

I hope the new year brings much happiness to all of us.....

love and hugs to everyone....Dianne

Kare.....Have a wonderful trip to Vegas!! Enjoy,,, Merry Christmas

Brenda,,,,, Merry Christmas! Enjoy your family time especially those grandbabies!

Dianne...Hope Santa is good to you! Did you get all your crafts done in time? Merry Christmas

Cori....Merry Christmas, hope you and Mike have a wonderful Christmas

Denise......(((((HUGS))))....Merry Christmas!

AL and I are alone for Christmas, kids are all off doing their own thing. We were supposed to be in the Dominican with DD and SIL but there was a last minute booking issue so we are home and they are there. We are both struggling with life, so we are just staying in, staying away from people and trying to find "the path" we are supposed to be on. Both feeling a little lost and not sure how to help the other. One of us is always "up" when the other is beaten down, but not this time! We will find the light again, not sure when but we will find our way

blessing and peace to each of you and your families,
thank you for your friendship and love throughout the year
Merry Christmas!

May 2017 be a year of "dreams come true" for each of us,
May we go through our days mindful and caring
May we be a light to others who may not see the way
May we continue to love and support each other through the good and bad!
May we all take time out of our busy days to stay in touch

goodnight and sweet dreams
jeanette

Kare...have a wonderful trip to Vegas.....where are you staying? Have been there so many times I could be a tour guide there!

Dianne....Enjoy your repurposing, craft room. sounds like a wonderful peaceful place!

Brenda....How is everything going there? bet you are really missing that Ohio winter

Cori...((HUGS)) I think of you so often.

Denise....no words,,,,, just hugs and prayers of healing.

Prayers of healing and comfort to each of you this Christmas,,,,,My prayer for you is to find an internal peace and joy, and to be with those you love!

Dianne, we have the deep freeze up here right now. -40C this morning and colder tomorrow morning. Supposed to gradually warm up through the week.

Brian and I were saying this morning it just doesn't feel like Christmas. Maybe because other than Dwayne we have done little shopping. The trees up but no presents. I do have gifts for the girls and their guys but since we won't see them until we are back from Vegas, I'm not in a hurry to wrap. Haven't done any baking etc..

Went and exchanged our money today for American and picked up small toiletries etc. Brian dug out the suitcases so now I need to make a packing list and a doggy care list.

I hope you are all doing well and staying warm.

Kare

hey girls -- it's warmed up to -13! Woke up to -16..wind chill..well that doesn't really matter when it's already below zero! Got Brinley and Jacie this weekend - kids went to the cities for Vikings game...going to do some christmas goodies later today - they are looking forward to popcorn balls with grandpa.

Hard to believe Christmas is only a week away - I know I'm not alone is trying to get into the Christmas spirit. So many gone too soon...wonder if I'll ever get the joy back in decorating. Maybe this is what menopause does - makes us feel like there is this empty space inside of us and we just can't find what it needs. As for crafting - well I get up there and have to turn my heater on for an hour to warm up (yesterday I saw my breath)...yes it's that cold up there! I have an assembly line going...whip through it and go back inside to thaw my fingers...lol, ok it's not really that bad....love going up there by myself thought - paint and think.

Have a wonderful warm weekend...healing thoughts to everyone!

Hello and Happy Friiiiiiiday to you all...

SO sorry to have been MIA ...Andy is doing better ...he spent 4 days in the hospital ...he'll be getting a stress test done and a sleep study ...they did the procedure to shock his heart into rhythm which worked but then was back out of rhythm the next morning ...hoping to control it with meds:) that time in the hospital REALLY brought Christmas here quickly !!!YIKES 9 days !!

We are on our way to Pigeon Forge for the weekend ....going to Dollywood tomorrow and then over to Gatlinburg Sunday ..we want to see how things are after the fires !

Denise ....thinking of you so often ...praying for continued comfort for you !!

Dianne ...a trip some where warm sounds like a great idea !! How are the crafts coming along ?

Cori ...glad you're doing well ...sorry the situation with your boys is still an issue (((HUGS))) prayers for peace while your Mom is there ;)

Jeanette...I'm SO happy Lindy and her family are all doing well ...send me a pic sometime :) I'm sorry your struggling ..I knew it was something you've been dealing with for a while ...would volunteering somewhere be helpful ..a purpose of being needed ? I know you've had a lot of loss this year ...we're the ones left here dealing with the emotions but I really try and draw strength in knowing that THEY are so much better off where they are and some day we'll be reunited until then honor their memories by laughing ...sharing stories & memorie (((HUGS)))

Kare ...ohhhh Vegas is getting so close ...I can't wait to hear all about your adventure !!!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend ...I am SO thankful that no matter how many days sneak by in life that I can always come here and find comfort with all of you ...you all are such a blessing to me

Hugs,
Brenda

Hello girls - another bitterly cold day - and the wind is blowing...suppose to be like this through the weekend...maybe above zero next week but not much. At least they are not calling for any more snow..after having a few winters with none I've decided I like that better!

Planning our trip south - finally! Selling cows/calves right after Christmas. Thinking we may go down to AZ to the Barret Jackson Auction in Scottsdale...then maybe over into Texas to visit friends...we're both ready to get away for awhile. Somewhere warm!

DS is here for supper - he's frying fish for us...have a warm night!

Hi Ladies.

Denise, you have been in my thoughts and prayers quite often this last few days. Please know that we all love you and pray for comfort in your time of mourning.

Jeanette, so happy to hear that Lindy arrived not only healthy, but also bigger than expected. What a blessing! It saddens my heart to hear you are struggling emotionally. But I completely understand your turmoil. Life is so much better for us emotionally since weíve made the move to FL, but this year I am struggling with all the emotions about the estrangement from our boys that I thought I had resolved, but always seem to make their way to the surface during this time of year. Christmas used to be my most favorite time of the year, but not anymore. So, I totally understand and will be praying for you my friend, not only for peace and comfort for your soul but also an understanding of what you are seeking, even if you donít know exactly what it is right now. Hugs and prayers my friend.

Brenda, praying that all goes well with your step-dad. Congratulations on getting everything settled into your new home.

Kare, happy to hear Brianís surgery went well. Hope you are able to stay warm up there!

Dianne, so sorry to hear about the added unrest up there. I feel for both sides. You are really getting hammered with the snow up there! Stay safe and warm!

We are doing okay here in Florida. My mom invited herself to come and stay the WHOLE winter with us. We have not lived together for decades and it never ended well in the past. I am trying to be accommodating to her but that is easier said than done at times. We have such different views and lifestyles so I have to bite my tongue quite often to keep the peace. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as well.

Merry Christmas to all of you my sisters. Even though some of us are struggling right now, we all know we can always share the good, the bad and the ugly here and not be judged. I love you my friends and I pray each of us can find some comfort, peace, love and joy during what sometimes can be the hardest time of the year.

Good morning.....

Brenda....prayers and healing energy to your step dad (Andy right?)
hope things have improved by today! Enjoy your day with friends.

Kare.....Glad Brian's cataract surgery went well, amazing what modern medicine can do these days. Are you excited for Vegas trip? We saw Elton John earlier this year in Vegas. Wonderful show!! Would highly recommend it......couple suggestions. Go to the box office to buy your tickets, instead of one of the kiosk offering tickets. A little bit of walking involved to get there but no worry of fake tickets and much better prices and seating. At the kiosk they offer a 2 for 1 or deeply discounted but we have found not necessarily true. We have seen several shows at Caesars and always go to box office to buy tickets. No bad seats so don't feel that you need the most expensive. Amazing show!! Where are you staying???

Our family is now 1 larger, Lindy Ann was born on Tuesday afternoon, a lovely, healthy 6 pounds (we all were shocked, including the doctor). They came home yesterday afternoon, mom and baby doing great (big brother and dad too!) Luke was sooooo excited.... I had him while they were at hospital so they face-timed just minutes after she was born. It was so amazing to experience it thru his eyes.

Dianne...How's the baking going? Don't think I am going to tempt myself this year, feeling a little blah and concerned I will eat too many goodies.....LOL kind of feel that emotional eating thing creeping up on me!
Big decision about the cows......at least they would still be around but you just wouldn't have all the responsibility that goes with. The first full year after we got out of "pig" raising it was a very strange feeling, it had been part of life for so long. We did farrow to finish, 750 head capacity so it was a full time job in itself. I miss the animals but not the daily schedule it required or the manure hauling! That was our Saturday dates when I first met DH.....and I still married him! lol

Kare, Dianne, Cori, Brenda....I want to thank each of you personally for the prayers and good thoughts for Lindy. I firmly believe it is why she is here, safe and healthy.


I have allowed myself to slip over that edge of depression/sanity. It has been going on for awhile but I have said it out loud and quit denying it to others now. In the past I have taken a hiatus from life and healed myself, but I can't get there this time. Have lost my drive, focus, and ability to be happy. have been feeling this way for over 6 months, trips haven't helped, burying myself in work hasn't helped, even Lindy here doesn't take away the ICk. I have no direction and that is a really scary thing for me. am dreading the holidays in a way that I didn't even know existed. DH doesn't understand and I can't explain it too him because I don't even understand it other than I just feel like I am losing myself.
The death of my nephew, then my best friend, and news of another friend(my age) suffering a stroke and in the nursing home 2 weeks ago has compounded it. I believe I struggle with purpose in life, my own mortality, and why any of the stuff we fill our days with matters. I don't want filler, I want more but can't define the more.....maybe I live in a fairy tale!
thanks for listening...love you all

Brenda I hope your step dad does well. That's kind of scary. Try and get some rest..

Dianne, we have the same system here only we got upgraded to a blizzard through the night and it's still snowing. We were supposed to get about 15 inches today and a few more tonight and tomorrow. I've spent about 40 minutes shovelling and my arms are like noodles. The snow is heavy and wet. It's still blowing so we will see what it's like in the morning.

Jeanette, is your little bundle here yet?

Off to have a little snack and then a warm bath.

Take care everyone

Kare

Hello and Happy Tuesday to you all ...

It's been a crazy couple of days my step dad hasn't been feeling well short of breath ..well he finally went Monday to the med center and they transported him by ambulance to the ER ... after lots of tests and procedures(they had to remove fluid from around the lungs) they have determined he has A-fib and they will be shocking his heart tomorrow to restart the rhythm ..hoping that fixes it all so I've been at the hospital for the last 2 days with Mom & will go back tomorrow ...we have 2 friends coming to visit Thursday so things will be a little hectic ;)

Dianne..you can keep that snow ...I'm so hoping we see close to nine down here ;)

Hello to everyone checking in ...have a great night

Hugs,
Brenda

Monday - start of a new week - personally I love Mondays...lol

Brenda - you pictures look wonderful of Christmasville! So much fun! Frustrating that people have to push their way in - I always let kids of front of me even if they are not my own...those little people enjoy it more! I've been plugging away at getting my decorations out...I think some are in the job down south so will have to make a trip there..got a tree last week and got that decorated and lights up around the rail and deck...even Don was pushing for me to get lights up! Good luck on your adventure with Omnitrition!

Weather man put us in a winter weather advisory...2 - 5 inches of snow..hope it's near the 2 inch mark...Got all the cows home so that makes a big difference with worrying about the weather...the vet will come this Friday and we'll vaccinate all the calves...then we'll pg the rest next week...hopefully it'll be warmer. Don and I are talking about getting out of the cows....Joe and Alex might take over and just down size to 150...we'll see what happens after Christmas.

Going to try and get some baking done this week...wanted to do some before Thanksgiving but procrastinated too long! Also have 5 wood projects for gifts to finish...so I'd better get moving!

Have a great week everyone....hugs!

Dianne

Good morning and Happy Sunday to you all....

We had a nice time a the Christmasville festival here in Rock Hill.....strolling carolers, live nativity, lots of window decorations....the parade was nice but many people worked their way in front of us even though we were "front row" at the beginning so the kids ended up not being able to see anything so we left a little early to beat traffic.

Today we're going to look at a love seat I think.....that will complete our apartment:) we put together spread sheets on our credit cards....trying to knock them all down and be done with them....hate that we let them creep up...but we have a plan and we'll get them handled :) I'm hoping my Omnitrition business will continue to grow...one lady in my upline makes $15,000.00 a month...that would be nice!!

Jeanette....continuing to pray for Lindy that everything goes fabulous!!! Keep us posted.

Dianne....how's your Christmas prepping going?? I've bought a few things but really need to get it finished up:)

Kare...where are you staying in Vegas?? I love going down to the old vegas area....so much nostalgia there!!

Cori...hope you're doing fantastic!!

Denise....thinking of you my friend...love you

Everyone have a fantastic day

Hugs,
Brenda

Hello girls

Jeanette - will be saying extra prayers until she's here...I just know everything is going to turn out great!

Kare - we missed the snow but got over an inch of rain....temps have been high enough that roads haven't been icy but I imagine that will change!

Brenda - so glad your apartment is coming together nicely! Your furniture looks awesome! I would love to attend that Christmas Festival, I know you'll enjoy it!

Hannah's fiancee Matt is in the NG and his unit has been activated with this protest. He will start Saturday at the "front line" as they call it with riot control. So many people get their info from the internet and most of it is so wrong, they never report about the cattle, bison and horses that have been killed\\/slaughtered, fences cut, hay bales burned, local people run off the roads by out of state vehicles, farmers couldn't get to their fields to combine or they had to go an extra 20-25 miles to get to their fields....most local people there are armed, some have sent their families to live in other towns. Not all the protesters are violent but too many of them are. I'm really worried about what is to come...

My heart aches for Denise - if your checking in know that you are in my thoughts and prayers!

love you all - Dianne

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't posted for awhile, it's just been very busy.

Brian had his second cataract surgery last Friday and things went well. Only set back is the pressure is a little high but that might settle down in time. No glasses for awhile either.

Been very busy at work and by the end of the day I am so tired. The class I am in for the afternoons are a great bunch of kids but they never stop talking. The teacher is frustrated too, but hopefully we can get it under control.

Got our first snowfall, along with freezing rain and rain etc, it is so messy here and so many ruts. Makes walking difficult and poor Dwayne had a rough day trying to get around at work. He is having trust issues with the new staff because he is scared of falling and getting hurt. It will get better, it just takes time and trust...

Not much else going on. Slowly getting ready for our trip at Christmas to Vegas. We leave on the 23rd after Santa comes and return on the 29th. I will still have a whole week off when we get back so that will be nice.

Jeanette, I hope all goes well with the delivery!

Really tired so going to sign off....

Kare

have started this twice over the last 48 hours and just can't seem to find the words I want.....
so just going to say hello Brenda, Kare, Dianne, Cori and anyone else that might check in.

love you all and feel blessed to have you in my life.

****Dr.s will be inducing labor on Tuesday Dec 6th, she will be a little peanut, they are estimating under 5 pounds. Please continue to pray, don't think we would have made it this far without the power of prayer.

Hello girls! Finally got logged in! Frustrating as it wouldn't even help with my password! think I got it fixed now...

Had a pretty good Thanksgiving - DS from Colorado was here which puts everyone on edge because of his sarcastic remarks but we weathered it pretty good...always brings his dog and thinks we all love him as much as he does and he should have the run of everyones house....he says he is gluten intolerant (we question that) so I made gluten free chocolate chip cookies for him and I got "next time add more chips" as a thank you - not doing that again.

Corn is done, half the cows home, lots of field work done...hopefully time to relax and plan a vacation! I'm hoping to go to Black Hills for New years eve...well I should say I'm pushing hard for it!

I'm sure you've seen stuff about the pipeline protests here - it's so scary....they protest in front of Hannah's bank also - she is afraid to go home for lunch, won't even go to walmart alone...they block the streets and businesses, yell at people and throw things. Matt's NG unit has been activated which tells us something is going to happen. Now I see the Corp (the is federal not state) has told the protesters that need to vacate corp property by Dec. 5....I have a feeling it's not going to be good. I'd say this is even worse than the election! And Obama says "we'll just let it play out and see what happens", yes, let's wait until someone gets killed.

Jeanette - I am sending prayers for a healthy baby girl!

Moving last of the cows home today and tomorrow so I'd better get my warm socks on! Have a wonderful weekend!

Kare ...hopefully the snow will stay away a little while longer !! Bet you're getting excited for Vegas !!

Well I better finish packing :) going to be 75 at the beach ..we'all get there around 3:30 ....tomorrow going to be high 60's there:)

Safe to say that winter has arrived. No snow but the temperatures have sure gotten back down to normal. Supposed to be a system coming through on Monday night so we will see, of course I have a tea show out of town Tuesday night so it will storm.

Been a quiet weekend. I've actually slept well for the last 3 nights, which has only made me feel more tired today but I know I really needed that. Insomnia seems to be my new best friend lately. Dwayne has settled down so he had a good weekend as well. Bought myself a pair of boots that actually fit over my calfs! I was so excited as I have never been able to wear even the extra wide boots. So now I have boots to wear with my dress I bought for Vegas, just need to get some tights.

I hope you are all doing well. Just watching the American Music awards and reading a novel that I started on Friday while I was waiting for command start to be put in my car. Trying to spend more time off the computer and get back to doing needlework and reading.

Take care everyone! Have a good Monday!

I heard that our websites crashed the night of the election - doesn't seem likely that so many people would come to Canada but you never know. The election has many people questioning a great many things...perhaps this will make people open their eyes to all the problems going on in our world.

We have had beautiful weather here this past week. Normal temps are near 0C and today we have been between 12-20C! Supposedly another week of this weather before the colder temps arrive. Won't complain, got my windows done and heading out to dig up garden beds later. I'll probably take Elvis for a walk too as he will follow me around until I do.

Jeanette, I hope things are going well for your family.

Dianne, are you getting this nice weather too!

Just watching the Remembrance day services on tv, we don't usually go to the service as it's to busy and too long for Dwayne.
