Hello and Happy Wednesday to you all.....



Had a good day at the salon yesterday...my friend whose son passed away on Thursday came in so I could get her and her girls ready for the funeral on Thursday...always makes me happy to be able to make people feel a "little" better in a horrible situation ...

I have Aiyden today...we're getting ready to go for a walk...he loves riding his little tricycle that I can push with a handle.

I have laundry to get done yet too....it'll get there...lol

Denise...hopefully your week goes by fast so you can have a restful weekend. Andrea is due August 24th :)

Hello to everyone checking in....make it a great day!

Hugs,
Brenda

Morning all,
Still tired from the busy weekend, but it's wednesday already;) big meeting this morning with difficult parents.....praying if goes well...lawyers are involved, which is so annoying.

Dianne, how lucky to have such joy in our lives with these little ones...my heart just melts when Bree simply calls me mom mom;)). I love all your pics with them.

Brenda, glad your weekend was so fun....how's Andrea feeling?? I think she's due a month after Kelly, right, August?

Kare, I imagine it's sometimes hard to deal with different teachers. I only have 1 aide with me for a short time, and she's very helpful to he when she isn't working him her student. She likes to keep busy, so I always have plenty for her to do. That's a shame that you have the same placement next year. I thought the 22nd was late! Wow....hang in there.

Hi Jeanette, , Cori, and all....
Have a good week..

You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance.

Good morning and happy Tuesday to you all....

We had a fantastic time camping....the weather was perfect!!! Aiyden LOVED seeing Thomas...he's such a love...he was SO excited on the way there! We packed up camp early on Monday and then went with Mom to meet one of her Spark friends...love those first time meetings....SO much fun :)

I have a pretty busy work schedule this week but not swamped so that is good :) This weekend we have 3 events on Saturday and then Austin's girlfriends graduation is on Sunday. Going to be a busy weekend...every weekend is kind of busy until we go to Myrtle in July...lol

Denise....I'm glad the house is coming together so nicely for you. Happy to hear Kelly's pregnancy is going so well...I hope the emotional stuff will level off for her soon. I like the name they picked.

Dianne....Hope your weather straightens out for a while. Sorry Mom's having so much trouble :(

Jeanette....Glad the crops got put in.....this weather has been crazy!!! Any little getaways planned now that it's done so you can regroup..?

Kare...bummer on having the same teacher next year...I had one teacher that I wasn't thrilled working with when I was a teacher's assistant...I totally get how you're feeling.

Lisa....How is it being back to work??

Tina...Still missing you girl.

Cori...How's Florida treating you??

Tammy....Happy Anniversary ...hope you had a great weekend :)

Have to head off to the salon...everyone have a fantastic day.

Hugs to all,
Brenda

Happy Monday! Sun's up and it looks like it's going to be a good day, got the twins coming this afternoon as Andy is planting his beans, then we have the neighbors beans to do and then done with the planting! Looks like our next shot of rain is Wednesday - guess that's ok for us but there are others around us that have a lot left.

Had a pretty good weekend - got a lot done around the yard, Jacie and Brinley were here yesterday as the kids went fishing - then came back and we grilled steaks and asparagus...had lots of laughs with those girls! Jacie went with Don to feed the cows and it was too warm in the pickup and she wanted to turn the air on - so she tells grandpa "see these humans on this button? That's how you turn the air up"...and then watching the news and hear "tornado warning" and asked what a "tomato warning" was! Oh they are a joy...

Kare - glad your getting some warmth also! It's about time...I agree it smells so good outside!

Jeanette - glad you got the crop in - now you can rest for awhile and then the spraying begins...I hear you on leaving "technology" behind...I've been leaving my phone in the house when I go out - can you imagine that! After while it just gets in the way lol....was excited yesterday to see some of my beans popping through the ground...had to "break" the surface the other day and there was quite a crust on it. Got corn, squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelon, pumpkins, and cantaloup in. Now hope it all grows!

Don's coming up the drive way - off to town we go...have a great Monday!

Happy Sunday! A beautiful weekend here considering a week ago we had snow. Temps are in the high 20C range so plenty warm enough. Got some gardening done yesterday and heading out again today once I get Brian to work.

Jeanette, so glad your crops are in. Such a big job!

Dianne, nothing but warm dry temps for the next week so I'm hoping things will finally start drying up. Smells so beautiful outside with all the trees in the neighbourhood blooming.

Brenda, we have thought of taking Dwayne to see Thomas too, he loves all the engines and has quite the collection. Too bad we didn't live closer, he and Aiyden would have a lot of fun!

Denise, our last day of school is June 29th. So looking forward to the break this year. The teacher I work with is nice but lazy and pawns a lot of her work onto me. She wont adapt anything for my students so it's left to me to find resources and help the kids. Now I find out I will be with her next year as she is moving to grade 8 - oh joy!

Well Dwayne is telling me it's time to take Dad to work so he can have a hotcake happy meal. Then he will probably come home and sleep while I get some work done.

Have a nice day everyone!

Kare

Here I am again, struggling to catch up on the news. I'm so bad at keeping in touch on here, but think of you girls often.
House is all painted, and it's looks great!! New appliances are coming, as is the new kitchen floor. Things are coming together nicely. It's a bittersweet feeling as I do love it, but wish Jim could enjoy it too.
Kelly is doing a little better..she's been helping me sort through, trash, and reorganize things around here. She's feeling fine w the pregnancy, it's just her emotions;(. I believe they are thinking of blaming their baby Alyssa....we'll see if it sticks....2 months to go.
Bree is getting so big and smart....talking up a storm....love her to pieces.

Dianne, hope your mom gets the assistance she needs for the meds....glad you were successful looking for housing. Dad was in a very nice place too.
Congrats on the kids accomplishments! So exciting.

Cori....good luck with the move...I don't know how I'd handle being far from Bree, but you do have your hubby;))

Jeanette- hope you get to relax dome today.....I hear ya on the drama...I hate dealing with it too.

Kare, when are you finished school? We go til the 22nd of June, and I am counting the days!
This crew is brutal....talk about drama...everyday it's another issue....ugh!!

Brenda, good luck with your new van!! Enjoy your camping weekend!

It's been a beautiful weekend here...nice and cool and sunny.....got my lawn taken care of by a former student who has his own service now;). Just need to put mulch down today.
Hoping to clean up the deck too, but it pains me a bit.....always thinking of DH.
The kids should be coming for a barbecue , so that will be nice.
Keeping my head up, and moving forward.

Enjoy the weekend:))

good morning,,,
just a quick check in to say hello and wish each of you a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend,
Things have been a little chaotic here so just been working outdoors as much as possible and avoiding everyone and anything that adds to the stress. no computer, no cell phone etc...
Nothing serious(well at least not that I can change by stressing over it) just ridiculousness and annoying! Don't want the drama but just can't seem to escape it.
Planting season is still going...we get a day in then rains for 3, rained so hard last week it washed large ruts in fields already planted, hydraulics went out of one of our main tractors, it has just been long and drawn out. Finished corn May 2 and only have been able to go to the fields 2 days since then. Today and tomorrow look good so we are going to push till done. more large rains coming Sunday and Monday!

have a safe weekend!
love you girls
jeanette

Good morning! Second day of sunshine! I think it's safe to plant the garden (again) so that is the plan today. Yesterday was a long day - left at 7 for Fargo for mom's dr appointment...it went ok - they are trying a pill that they use when all other treatments have failed. But it has a $2000 copay! Mom said she will not pay that much so not sure what will happen if she doesn't get assistance. They are sure she will qualify but one never knows. Her diarrhea and vomiting are still bad. Does good mornings and early afternoon but by late afternoon it hits her.

Afterwards we (mom, Dennis and I) looked at senior living apartments. Found a really nice one with a patio (mom really wanted one) that they both liked. The apartment is small but has everything they wanted and there is help available right there if they need it. I'm hoping they call today and take it. Dennis is worried about what to do with everything in his house (mom doesn't have much) and I said let your kids take care of it. Which should be interesting since they are so jealous of each other it's ridiculous, I guess Matt was upset because he wanted to go with to look and his dad said "no, Dianne is going with us"...Pam (Dennis's daughter) told me Matt feels threatened by me, well if he wouldn't call his dad 2-3 times a day and do nothing but complain maybe his dad would have asked him to come. Both of Dennis' kids are so negative I can see why he doesn't talk to them much.

Brenda - hope your have a wonderful weekend! They are calling for rain again here - fingers crossed we don't get any! Funny how we prayed so hard for rain because it was so dry and now places are too wet. I love your nails! Wish I could do that but I break mine right away...

Kare - happy birthday to Meghan! Love the picture of her and Dwayne. Getting some warm weather finally?

Lisa, Denise, Jeanette, Tammy, Cori (hope I didn't miss anyone!) Have a great weekend!!

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you all...

Have had a good week so far...Tuesday I didn't get my regular walk in because Aiyden was still sleeping at the time I usually go....but I was SO busy at the salon that I still got over 10,000 steps in....today I went and got my nails done and a pedicure, then went to WM to get our supplies for camping this weekend....came home and then had to zip to the salon to do 4 clients....I work tomorrow 10-6 not super busy...Friday I'm working a partial day and then we're off to go camping.

It's been really chilly here today....supposed to be nice this weekend...no rain but cooler temps.

Lisa...Hope your meeting went well :)

Kare...BRRRRR on the snow....hope that's gone for good now .....Is Meghan really 27? I saw that on FB and kept thinking how did I not know she was that old?

Dianne....WOW good for Alex already looking to buy a house!! How was your Mom today?

Cori...Hope your travels are all safe....good luck girl!!!

Tammy...How's your week going?

Jeanette....How have you been?? Busy on the farm I imagine.

Denise...counting down the days yet for school to be done? I'm thinking we should pick a weekend this summer and meet half way for a get together :)

Well better get showered and ready for bed....hello to anyone else checking in.

Hugs,
Brenda

Sun is shining! And thankfully we only got down to 32 instead of the 27 they were predicting - with the beans popping up a freeze would not be good. Now for a warm up?? We ended up with about 7 1/2 inches of rain in a week - needless to say the potholes are full! Hoping lots of it will soak in or drain away - yesterday one of the TV stations was out and interviewed Don about the rain we've gotten. So he had a 10 second segment of talking on the news....seems when something happens around here everyone gives out Don's name for interviews! We'll have to start charging!

Brenda - glad the van worked out! Yes for what we have to pay for vehicles there should be no scratches of dents! I, like you, always joke around about getting a tshirt or sweatshirt! Don just shakes his head but I've almost always gotten one! Can always use another sweatshirt around here. Glad things are going good for Andrea.

Lisa - bummer about going back to work..."vacations" are always too short...good luck with your new position with the Union!

Kare - we had snowflakes but nothing really stayed. Now let's all pray for a warm up like we prayed for the rain!

Jeanette - how is field work going down there, I'm thinking you guys should be about done?

We've been looking at houses with Alex - looked at one Sunday that was ok, he liked it because it was "different", it was a modular home that they built onto but the living room and both bedrooms are 2 steps down from the rest of the house. He thinks its neat but all I can think of is "how many times will you stumble down that step"...it's a few miles from work which is great..basement that they started to remodel but needs work - but we think it's about $60,000 over priced! I want him to look at a few houses in town that are the same amount and twice the house - he wants to be out in the country but I hate to see him purchase a money pit. So he's a little bummed because we 're not with him on this..try telling a 20 year old that he doesn't need to buy the first one he sees and there will be more!

Don left for Dr appt in fargo, still has this fungal infection in his throat...I hope they can get it cleared up. Going to take care of mom this afternoon as Dennis has a dentist appt, had her into the ER again Sunday night - vomiting and diarrhea again - both of her brothers stayed last week - they showed up the day she got out of the hospital and stayed 4 days! She was so run down...that will not happen again! Dennis and I decided no more overnight visitors. Thursday we are looking at assisted living apartments. Dennis thinks it will be for the best and I agree, less stress on both of them!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Dianne

Holiday Monday here so no work today which is a good thing from a weather perspective. Rained all day yesterday until about 4 pm when it turned to ice pellets and by 7 it was snowing. The ground is white this morning and the winds have been horrible since yesterday. Spent the day yesterday doing laundry and watching movies with Brian. Took him to work this morning and have been puttering around fnishing up laundry and tidying the house.

Brenda, exciting to get a new vehicle. We went from a van to a SUV (Satuurn Vue) and I really like it. So much easier to park etc and we didn't need a van with just the 3 of us. Much easier on gas too..

Hope you are all having a nice day. Off to get some margarine so I can do some baking.

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

We had a good weekend...Friday we didn't much just relaxed at home....Saturday I worked in the morning while Jim went van shopping....he found one he liked so then he came and picked me up so we could go back and finalize the paperwork...we had everything done by 2:30 until as I was taking pics to post I noticed 3 HUGE scratches on the front bumper (the van hadn't been washed yet when Jim saw it so it had dust and stuff from sitting on the lot) so they offered to buff it out and I was like UHHHHH NO....when you spend that kind of money I'm leaving with a PERFECT van....so we had to go down the road to their storage lot and we picked another van...they brought it back and detailed it so we inspected it with a fine tooth comb and then finalized the deal AGAIN...we did end up getting a free Garmin GPS system for all of the hassle and then I joked and said I wanted a sweatshirt from their parts dept/store and they threw in TWO of them.....lol We didn't get home until 7:30 so needless to say it was a looooooooooooooooooooooooong day. Sunday we went down to wash the outside of our camper and get it inspected for the year and to grab our tent and camping stuff since we're going camping with some friends this weekend for the holiday :) Saturday we'll leave camp for a little while to take Aiyden on a train ride with Thomas the train...he'll be SO excited!!!

I've been doing really good with food, water, & walking....the scale finally moved down a little :)

Kare...glad the productions went well....sounds like a lot of work for you but good that you enjoyed it.

Jeanette....I keep seeing people on FB with their morrel mushroom pics...have you gotten any?

Dianne...congrats on all of the kids graduating...what a great feeling. I'm glad your Mom was able to come....I loved the pics on FB Andrea is feeling great ...the morning sickness finally went away...she has some ankle swelling but not all the time. She's due Aug 24:)

Cori....So excited for you.....I feel ya on leaving Amelia behind......that's the fly in our ointment for moving South is now Andrea's Jim doesn't know if he wants to move to NC and I have Aiyden so much and am so attached to him I just know I can't go if they don't...so I'm praying they'll decide to go so we can all go at once. I hope all the leads on apts & jobs goes smoothly so you can settle in your new adventure. How far are you from Orlando area? We'll be coming to FL in April/May next year.

Tammy....Hope you had a great weekend.

Lisa....that party sounds like one of our grad parties...lol I'm SO glad I don't have to do that this year....I have a TON of parties but the only one I'm helping with is my niece Hannah's and I'm just providing the cake!! Hope work was easy on ya today.

Denise...How's Kelly? Does she have a name picked yet?

Well I better get laundry going and get my walk in.....

Quote of the day:

Don't look back.....you're not going that way

Hugs,
Brenda

Good Sunday afternoon!

I am so glad my nephews party is done and over! I was a terrific party, but so much work! I have never in my life seen so may people at a graduation party in my life! The food line NEVER stopped! I was a runner and server with 2 other ladies and we never sat down...literally until they ran out of all food except for desserts with an hour to go! LOL we cleaned up all the roasters then sat down for 10 min and the party was over and time to tear it all down. Luckily they had a clean up crew that did that so I was done...I went home and had some wine, took 2 Tylenol PMs and went to bed!

It was so good to see Bre, but I didn't really get to spend much time with her with everything going on. She had so many people she wanted to try t see in such a short time plus help with the party...but it was nice to have the little time that I did have.

I had another grad party yesterday to go to and one today...So I am done with grad parties! LOL I go back to work tomorrow and NOT looking forward to it at all!!! I don't want to get up at 3:30am!!!!! UHG

Lisa - so glad things are going good - it sure helps to get involved in things and it sounds like you've found the perfect group.

Kare - we've been getting rain since Friday - and cold temps, no snow here but north of us they may get 1-4 inches through Monday. In 20 minutes last night we got 1.2 inches, in town got 3. Guess we prayed too hard for rain! Hope our weather straightens out for all of us!

Brenda - happy anniversary to you and Jim! Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate life. How is Andrea doing? When is the baby coming?

Jeanette - how are things on the farm, have you been getting rain? It'll be a week before we get in again. Heavy fog this morning and more rain...had a pile of dirt I was going to level for my garden and I'm afraid to go look - pretty sure most of it has run down the hill. Had everything ready to make raised gardens.

Yesterday Adrian graduated from NDSU and Alex graduated for Bismarck State - hard to believe all my kids are out of college but so pleased and happy they all have jobs and are doing great!
Dennis brought mom in for lunch with us after the graduation because we knew she couldn't sit for 4 hours. 2100 graduates - whew! After lunch we took pictures around the campus. It was a good day for all of us.

Now if it would just stop raining! We're reaching the 4 inch mark in about 4 days. Seeded grass again but I'm pretty sure that has been also washed down the hill. We'll never get grass out front - might as well move in more rocks!

Guess I'd better go find some clothes and try to be productive today..have a restful Sunday everyone!

Tammy - you'll have to start posting your salad recipes! My daughter has been taking salads to work but says they are getting boring. Glad your weather has been great - we prayed for rain and now it won't stop! I lost my fur baby this past November - miss her so much. Have a great week!

Sorry I've been MIA most of the week. So glad it is the weekend. Looking forward to slowing things down for a few days.

Tues to Thursday was our school's second drama production. We did The Little Mermaid and they did awesome! I was the dresser/alterations person but helped back stage with crowd control and worked the front for admission. My days didn't end until 9 pm so they were long days and I am very tired. Thinking it will be pizza for supper because I have no desire to cook.

Brian had a cardiologist appointment yesterday and although his weight gain was not positive he did do better on the stress test.

Brenda, that is so nice that you can do Vi's hair. That was my Grandma's name too.

Cory, lots of excitement and nerves at the same time. Change is scary for me too. Enjoy your time with Amelia.

Nice out today but a Colorado low is on it's way with rain, thunderstorms and possible snow starting tomorrow into Monday. Guess I won't be gardening...

Enjoy your weekend!

Hi girls. Itís been a crazy busy week here. Itís all really real now. We are loading up the UHaul on Sunday and close Monday at 11am. After that is on the road to Florida! I am very excited but feeling pretty apprehensive at the same time. I am not a risk taker normally and this is a very huge risk for us. We have some apartments lined up to look at on Wednesday and hopefully be moved into one of them by the weekend. Some job leads as well so we will be very busy for the first couple of weeks weíre there.

We have Amelia tonight and tomorrow. Thatís the only part that is tearing at my heart. I have no idea when we will see her again. We have asked if we can Skype and call her and Josh has said yes but we will see if that will really happen. Hopefully she wonít forget us, but we must go where we can be happy.

My knee is doing pretty well. Iíd say about 90 to 95% recovered. I was going to try some Zumba and light cardio this week but simply ran out of time. Mike is healing as well. The Dr said that this surgery wasnít quite as successful as his other due to his inner ear bone was almost completely eroded away and it was much harder than before to successfully recreate another one from his cartilage. His hearing is better but it will never be as good as his other ear. The Dr also said his ear will continue healing for the next 2 months. So we will be finding another ENT soon after we get settled in down there.

I gotta run and finish a few things before Amelia gets here. Shout out to each of my sister friends. Iíll try to post before we leave. Love you all!

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you all.....

Had a great day at the salon yesterday...the whole day flowed nicely and was done by 6 so that was awesome. Today I took Aiyden for a 5 mile walk with his little tricycle he loved it....it was SO chilly here today...but all in all a fabulous walk. Aunt Flo showed up this morning but I am THRILLED to share that I hit my lowest weight this morning even with her being here....that is the best feeling that I'm FINALLY getting it together!!!

Tammy....great job getting back into a routine that works for you and I feel we always have to allow ourselves a cheat treat once in a while!!

Kare....How much more school year do you have left?? How's Dwayne doing?

Lisa...That's great that you've found a way to get out and socialize more...:) Give Bre a big hug for me...enjoy your weekend!! Bummer about going back to work Monday but glad you recovered SO well!!!!

Tomorrow is my 10 year anniversary ....what a fabulous ride this has been...sometimes I can't remember a time Jim wasn't in my life....we're going to dinner tomorrow night and even though it's our anniversary some of our friends are joining us because we're going to a local restaurant that the lady Shelly who's hair I cut last year because she was battling cancer gave us a gift card for because I wouldn't let her pay me.... after she lost her battle our mutual friend Sheri (who arranged for me to cut Shelly's hair ) and I decided that we would go together to this restaurant to celebrate Shelly's life so we decided why not celebrate her life and our anniversary together!!!

Well going to finish my glass of wine and call it a night.....Love you all

Good morning!

I have been a busy gal here these last couple days. I joined a group at my church called Community Connection. We get together for dinner every Tues evening at someone's house and discuss what we can do to reach out to the community. They have done several cool projects and I felt so led to become part of this group! Not only for the outreach to help others, but for the casual and fun fellowship of the people getting together. There are families, couples and singles all able to throw out ideas to help out and to do life together. I feel like a whole new person and am moving forward in such a positive way!

This weekend is my nephews grad party, so I have been busy helping sis in law getting stiff ready for that. Bre is coming home for the party and I am SUPER EXCITED to see her! I miss her so much! Then I go back to work on Monday....... ugh, NOT excited about that at all. I have really enjoyed my 4 weeks off. Poor little Lennie will be so depressed when I go back.
Well, have a great day everyone! Gotta get up and get moving!

Hello Everyone!

I have a moment in between patients to say hello. I hope all of you are doing well. The weather here in the Seattle area has been great for the last week. I love it! It's so much like Michigan that I'm not as homesick. We're still planning on making the trip back there in late October or early November. I can't wait!

My husband is really helping me a lot with my program. He loves the new foods I make. We still allow ourselves a treat night once or twice a month but I keep putting all of it in my trackers and so far have kept in my range. Whew!

I've inspired people with my salads at work. I guess you could say they're jealous. LOL! It's a great way for me to get in nearly all of my veggies/fruits for the day in one sitting.

Well, I'm off to take care of more furbabies! See you all around.

Tammy

Spent the day in the city, Brian had an eye specialist appointment which was over 2 hours long. He has now been diagnosed with glaucoma which apparently he was more at risk to get because of his myotonic dystrophy. On drops for now and goes back in 6 months. I spent the time walking through IKEA, and bought a summer weight duvet. We went to Olive Garden for lunch and I had the Citrus Chicken Sorrento and it was so good and under 575 calories!

After supper Elvis and I went for a long walk and we got our 10000 steps in today. Folded a bit of laundry and going for a bath. Up at 5am tomorrow for bootcamp at 6!

Brenda, yay for Aiyden! Getting to be so big!

Dianne, glad Mom is feeling a little better. No snow since last week but very windy and chilly soon.

Hello to everyone checking in! Off for a warm bath and bed!

Hello everyone! What happened to our weather! Yes we wanted some rain but snow??!! haven't gotten as much as others, I think we're over 2 1/2 inches of rain and it's still coming...and of course that lovely wind - gusts to 38. I may have to replant tomatoes. 39 degrees out...

Mom is doing better - I just wish the Dr would have listened to me last Thursday when I said she needed blood and something to make her feel better. The Dr on call over the weekend started a lot of the stuff I thought should have been done when she went in and guess what???!!!! It worked! She started feeling better right away...I'd love to switch Dr's but I don't think mom will. I just couldn't understand why her Dr wanted to wait until her blood work got so low. They did a ct scan of her brain (clear) and an x-ray of her stomach which might have an obstruction. They are going to keep her at least 4 more days.

Adrian graduates on Saturday - wasn't going to walk across the stage but over the weekend decided she was - so now I'm quickly putting together a little celebration. We were going to do this in June but she's leaving for Iowa and won't be here. I'm afraid these next few weeks will go too fast!

Enjoy the rest of the day!

Dianne

Hi ladies!

Lisa, really miss going to my grandparents' farms. Some of my best memories were from that time. Glad you had a good visit.

Brenda, looks like you are having a good vacation!

Got to the gym at 7:30 this morning because we are having a national hockey tournament here this week and I wanted to avoid all the people. Nice to get it done though...

Snowed here yesterday - yes you heard me right snow! Woke up to a white deck. So cold yesterday. A little warmer today but too wet to do any yard work. Been sitting here reading a book and watching tv.Just heading out in a few minutes to check out a yard. Got a tip that this lady has my birdbath that disappeared out of my yard last weekend. The lady who found it made a report but because I haven't made a report they can't do anything. Not going to confront her but apparently she told the police it was hers. I finally found a picture of it so now I need to verify it's mine before I phone the RCMP. REally hope it is mine, I bought it in memory of my grandma when she passed away and it's sat by my tree for 11 years. Broke my heart that someone would take it...

Anyways I hope all you wonderful ladies have a wonderful Mother's Day tomorrow. Love you all!

Kare

Hi girls - been along week - talked with Dennis about mom Monday night - she's not doing well, this last treatment really knocked her down. Tuesday afternoon he called and said things are not going good, she's been vomiting, diarrhea, not eating. I said take her in - he called an hour later and things had gotten worse - I said call the ambulance so he did, she was just out of it the whole time in the ER and then Dr sends her home! I called her Dr right away the next morning and got her in...her Dr took one look at her and said "I'm getting you a bed"...so she's in for a few days on IV"s and hopefully get this diarrhea under control - her lab work is super low and nothing is working for her. The Dr is looking at other options but seriously I'm thinking quality of life? She sleeps all the time, can't eat (losing 2-3 lbs a day) so lets change her treatment and see if we can prolong her life another few months even though she feels lousy. She's just about to where dad was when this same Dr said there's nothing else we can do. Been through this too many times and I hate to sit and watch family members suffer because the Dr wants to try "one more option". I know - sounds harsh.

On the bright side we got rain! Not a lot but enough to get things going. Have about 2 1/2 days left of planting but it's still early. Glad I got most of my garden done. Things just look brighter now - and cleaner!

Lisa - you sound wonderful! So happy and full of energy...things are heading in the right direction! Good luck!

Brenda - my fitbit just quit. Works for awhile then quits, got it with points so I can't send it back. Might have to look at getting a new one.

Denise - summers coming! Hang in there - things will look up and then you can focus on your kitchen. Sometimes it takes awhile - like he said "you'll get your mojo back!"

Better run - have a great day!

Dianne

Good morning!

Yesterday I had a fabulous day! It was so beautiful outside! I spent a lot of time outdoors, sitting on my back porch, going to my nephews tennis match, grilling dinner and drinking wine! I feel great! My new boobs now feel "normal" to me. That may sound weird, but at first I coudnt stop touching them because they felt so different, I couldn't get used to the idea of such tiny boobs. So now I wake up and shower and it all feels normal, like it should be. LOL I forgot to tell you guys, I have been elected as recording secretary for my local Union! AND I also have been elected as a guide (makes sure members sign in at meetings) for the amalgamated Union group. So I am feeling like I am heading in a very new and exciting path in my life! I have found something to get me out there and meet people and make a difference. I will be taking classes and bettering myself along the way. I honestly feel like I am FINALLY finding Lisa and true happiness again!

Well, I have to get going...I have to pick up my car by noon (I dropped it off to be completely detailed last eve) and I have not even showered yet. Then I have a Union meeting at 4. Its going to be a good day. Love you guys! Keep up the good day!

Ok Jeanette, I wish we lived closer...you could really help me out these days!
I need to clear my head, and get a grip on decluttering my life!! I've decided to hold off on new cabinets, may be getting them painted instead. I need to reserve money for the summer and new cabinets are in fine shape. The painter is coming in the next week or two and now I'm facing clearing the rooms for him.....I have to pack away the things I. My china cabinet for sure...ugh. I probably should just throw most of it away;(. Think I'll be doing that this weekend.
After painting, appliances and a new kitchen floor are in the plan.
Of course, now, I have to pick colors!! The guy is really sweet, and said he would help me. He told me not to worry-- " you'll get your mojo back soon"
I've been so emotional lately wondering if Aunt Flo us heading my way...she's been skipping a month or 2 then popping in again.
Please say prayers for my daughter..she's going through such depression and I don't know how to help her...she hasnt spoken to anyone professionally, and is pushing friends away.
My heart aches for her.

Lisa, you look wonderfully happy my friend...great for you!!

Dianne, bonfires were so fun when we were camping ...the best nights;)
Good luck to your daughter with her new job. And it's no wonder she's so great with those kids...look at her role model;))

Trying to keep positive these last 2 months of school, but these kids are so challenging each day. They just can't get along during unstructured time...I keep rhem so busy, but the luch aides just can't control them..it comes back to me to handle, and I really don't like that.
I end up being the bad guy, and it's not enjoyable.....ugh...girls, let summer come!!

Enough of my venting.....sorry.
Wishing you all a great rest of the week..yay, it's Thursday... A thirsty one at that!

Love you girls...thanks for listening!

Denise
You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance.

Good Morning and Happy Thursday to you all....

It's been a good, crazy, and busy few days....Tuesday I had a great day at the salon, Aiyden stayed Tuesday night...he's getting so big...we're starting the potty training...he gets so excited when he goes on the potty...lol Wednesday I had to go get a nail fixed, went to Walmart to grab a few things then zipped up to the salon so Andrea could color my hair, came home got my walk in and then did another color lastnight at 8 here at the apartment. Today I have a 10-8 day at the salon...it's really starting to get busy again....I'm actually kicking around selling it and continuing to work there....but we'll see...I'm just ready to go to work...and not have to deal with the details of owning it.

I have a few people to do tomorrow and then Jim and I are off to Cleveland for our anniversary get away....we're SO excited Sharon (Tim's ex) text us last night to let us know she was giving us 2 tickets to the Indians game tomorrow night 5 rows behind HOME PLATE..Wooo Hooooooo!! Saturday we'll probably go to the Hofbrauhaus for an appetizer and then to dinner at the Chocolate Martini Bar....might go to the Casino for a little while. Sunday we got tickets for all of us to go to the Indians game for Mother's Day....Lots of memory making going on this weekend!!!

Lisa....SO glad to have you back checking in more....makes me smile!!!!!! When is your first day back to work?

Jeanette...I love hearing you feeling better about things in life...makes me smile too....How's Al...you guys feeling more connected again??


I had to contact Amazon today...the button you push on my fitbit came off sometime last night...they are wonderful...they're shipping a new one that I'll get tomorrow!!!!

Well it's time to go get my walk in....

Have a fantastic day!!

Hugs,
Brenda

Good evening everyone,

It is 10pm and I am about to go to bed, but I wanted to check in with you guys before I do. And boy am I glad I did!!!
Jeanette...You have such a beautiful way with words! You gave me chills with how you are learning to cope and decluttering not only you home, but your life and your mind as well! You are truly an amazing and strong woman! I look up to you and I love your words of wisdom and strength! I love what you said about your focus on time well spent and making memories...that's what its all about...that's what the next generation will carry with them...not "things"! I love it!
Last 2 days I have been helping my sis in law getting picture boards ready for my nephews grad party! Whew its been a challenge, but fun at the same time! Looking back through old pics is so much fun...we laughed and cried and it was all about the MEMORIES MADE!!! It is so true...the memories are what we give the best! The good with the bad...but they /make us who we are and who our family is.
Well, I am so tired....going to bed now. Good night and sweet dreams girls!

Morning....
A new week, time for new opportunities, new goals.......
My goal for the week is to get all my water in every day, have been lacking a bit in that area and am feeling it this morning. hands are tight, lips are dry. Also want to have a productive week de-cluttering.....supposed to be a very rainy week, so want to use that time to get rid of more things.....taking a load of larger furniture type items to a local auction house that has a weekly consignment auction and have 3 additional boxes ready to go to goodwill. I am feeling great about my progress. have changed my entire mindset about "things" and it is making it easier to get rid of! I have become focused on making memories, time well spent, a life well lived and it has changed who I am......I think this is part of the reason I have been able to lose the weight and keep it off. I have fixed what was wrong in my heart and mind, see the path I want to be on.......now to keep it that way!
have been reading a lot, soul searching and talking to DD and DSIL about attitudes, mindsets and "dealing in the knowns" as DSIL calls it. We have a plan for our family, the direction we want to go and how to leave some of the baggage of life and other generations behind only letting in life what we want to be there. Sometimes that makes it a tough call to walk away from those 'negative' people and situations in life, but it is possible to limit the effect I let it have on me.

Wishing everyone a glorious day.....
blessings

Hello and Happy Monday to you all....

Had a great day yesterday ....rode the motorcycle to two different birthday parties and then went to see Jim's Mom for Mother's Day since we wont be able to next weekend...she was happy to see us and Mom and Andy joined us too.

I got laundry and cleaning done on Saturday so today I'm going to go run a few errands ..go to beauty supply and then stop at Dress Barn since Samantha got me a gift card for Mother's Day...find something cute for our Anniversary getaway :)

Jeanette...sounds like memory making moments....LOVE that!!!

Dianne...How far away will Adrian be when she moves? That is SO sad that those parents are so wrapped up in their Amway...my first husband and I did Amway 30 years ago and were pretty successful in it but boy it sure was time consuming!!!!! I hope they wake up and realize all that they are missing with their kids.

Kare....Hope this week will be a better week for you full of happiness and feeling great!!!

Tammy...Wow you are a busy girl with all of those pen names....Great that you have found something that brings you happiness along with being a vet!!

Cori...Hope the sale was awesome!!

Denise...How was your weekend??

Hello to everyone else checking in...I hope you have a great day!!

Quote of the day:

Do it because you love yourself

Hugs,
Brenda

Jeanette - oh it sounds like a wonderful time! Kids have asked a few times for a bonfire but we're in a burn ban until May 8...no recreational burning either. Had such a dirt storm yesterday...couldn't see more than 1/4 of a mile that's how thick it was. So dirty out. Another windy day today but three days of 60% rain next week. Fingers crossed.

Adrian is home this weekend with her roommates 2 kids ... Shayden is 3 and has leukemia ..such a precious little boy...I love his little voice and he speaks so clearly. Loves all the tractors and going for a ride on the 4 wheeler. So disgusted with the parents...they are 100% into Amway and that comes first. These poor kids are with the Nanny all day and a babysitter until late a night. Adrian comes home from school/work and the kids are more excited to see her than their own parents. Adrian knows more about his meds than the dad does. Quinn is 8 mths and is starting to crawl...such a fun little girl. Adrian is accepting a job with Rain and Hail doing claims and will be moving to Des Moines Iowa the end of May for 6 months of training, she is going to miss those kids and worry about them. Thankfully she has friends that live there and my cousins son also lives just north of there so she has 2 options for housing. Also my cousin Rusty is into horses big time so they'll take her on trail rides with them. She will love that!

Cori - hope things are working out with the sale and the packing! So much work but will be worth it when you get to Florida! How's the knee doing?

Lisa - yeah! Stitches out! Feel like a new woman? You look awesome in your pictures - like you've lost 15-20 lbs! Enjoy the next few free weeks!

Have to run - have a wonderful day girls!!

Morning~ a welcome rain here this morning! perfect timing as we finished planting corn yesterday. The yard smells wonderful, viburnums and lilacs in full bloom and then the rain just makes everything smell amazing!

had a wonderful party yesterday. 5 Little kids between 2 1/2 and 23 months...so funny to watch them all interact...such different little personalities! Too funny! After friends and parents left, built a family bonfire and just sat and relaxed, roasted marshmallows and watched the lake twinkle in the moonlight. Luke and I played Ring Around the Rosie, then we recruited poppa, mom and dad to make our circle bigger! Oh my the giggles.....it was "one of those moments" Not sure who was the happiest at that moment!!

Too much processed food so will be diligent today....sugar, sugar, sugar! my body just doesn't tolerate it anymore, amazing what an effect it has almost instantaneously.....I eat so pure these days that only a small amount effects me greatly!

someone pulling in drive, better run
have a blessed Sunday!

Happy Saturday evening to everyone! Long day at work and now getting ready for bed. I have the early shift again tomorrow. I'm so NOT a morning person!

To answer your question, Brenda: My main pen name is Tammy Dennings Maggy and I write erotic romance and poetry with that one. As Lia Michaels, I write gay erotic romance and menage. As Tawny Savage I write bigfoot erotica and soon will have a few other taboo/dark fantasy books out under her name. The good girl of the bunch is Stephanie Ryan. With her I write romantic suspense that's more on the sweet side and not erotic. I'm planning children's books under that pen name as well. Stephanie's debut novel will hopefully be out at the end of October. I publish all of them under my own publishing house Sassy Vixen Publishing LLC.

Now to finish my final entries in my tracker and head to bed. Have a great Sunday everyone!

Sorry I've been MIA too this week, just been really busy and Ihave been super tired and cranky. I think I am now into menopause as it's been a year since Aunt Flo has visited. I don't have any other symptoms but not sleeping. Going to make an appointment to see the Dr and talk to him. I also need him to check my leg as since I've lost weight Ive had an explosion of varicose veins and my right leg behind my knee aches constantly.

Went to a funeral yesterday for the husband of a lady I worked with. He was diagnose April 8th with pancreatic cancer and died on the 26th. So sad for the family and he was a beautiful man who would help anybody who needed it.

Had a busy day today outside, digging up gardens, raking and putting compost on my flower beds. Brian took down a couple of trees so a productive day.

Sounds like everyone is busy and doing well....Take care

Hello and Happy Saturday to you all....

Been a busy end to the week....Thursday I worked late then Friday I only worked 10-2 but then had to run get groceries...get home change clothes ..head to calling hours for a high school friend who passed away of a disease that mimics mad cow disease..only 48 years old...so sad ....then zipped home to meet our friends for dinner who are in from NC...Today I got up and got my 5 miles in...then home to do Austin's work clothes, clean the stove and fridge, did and up do for a girl going to prom..then getting stuff ready for our get together tonight....tomorrow we have 2 birthday parties ..one at 11 for my nephew and 1 at 2 for Abrielle then will stop and see Jim's Mom a little early for Mother's Day.

I've been doing really good staying on track with food water and excercise..the scale isn't moving as quick as I'd like but the pants I wore to calling hours that used to be EXTREMELY tight slipped right on and were baggy so that was a MUCH needed affirmation that things are working in other ways besides the number on the scale.

Jeanette...don't those productive days just energize you to do more?? Congrats to Jenn.!!

Cori....Good luck with the sale.....can't believe all this is finally happening for you guys...I sure hope we'll be able to move South at some point!!

Lisa...that is awesome news...SO happy you're healing but agree bummer on having to go back to work so soon....Austin is staying at the Comfort Inn in Dover he'll be there Sunday to Thursday this week...He doesn't have a vehicle there that he can use or he'd probably stop over for sure. LOVED your pic on FB...looking great girl!!

Dianne....How's your farm stuff coming along?? Any bike trips planned for when you get stuff planted and can leave for a weekend??

Tammy...good luck getting your writing done...what are all your pen names?

Colleen...hope you're doing well.

Denise...what are you up to this weekend??

Well I better finish up some stuff for the party...have a fabulous weekend girls...Love you all

Hugs,
Brenda

Happy Saturday....
Finishing coffee then off to get started for the day. Grandsons birthday party at 3.... trying to help Al get fieldwork done so we can get out of here on time and not feel like we need to hurry home! Need to get a bunch of fruit cut up for fruit tray, wrap presents, do a bank run in between time. All good stuff! Has been a busy few days, weather has been perfect and we have covered a lot of ground...nearing completion of corn planting, then will start beans next week. Have been cleaning our wood shed in the evenings, this is where my kitties and bunny's home base is.....making room for maybe a few more critters or just a really safe place for Luke to play on rainy days. One side of it has been kind of a catch all so it is all being processed, disposed or moved to an appropriate place. (My idea of appropriate place is the burn pile..lol)

DD is back in the states, she has been offered a really great new position. She was supposed to be in UK till September but they want an immediate start date. She literally flew in last night at 10pm and starts Monday morning, Then starts Wharton the 24th...I am a little concerned about her "overdoing" it, even though she thrives when she is challenged, I worry about her minimum amount of down time with the college on top of a full time job! What's a momma to do right?...guess we all have those momma moments!!

Cori...Wishing you a successful sale! When DD bought her last house, her inspection was 57 pages long and there was nothing "wrong' with the house!! Some people just take the power way to seriously...LOL! hugs and good energy being sent your way!

Lisa.... emoticon .....that is awesome news that you are healing so good.....YEAH!don't they just make some of the cutest bras these days!!! a shame to cover it up! Enjoy the rest of your time off!

Greetings to everyone checking in today!
Enjoy the day
Blessings~

Hello everyone!

I'm stopping in for a quick hello before heading to bed. I'm starting a five day stretch of 10 and 12 hour days. I'm in a bit of a time crunch to get the last book in a trilogy out for one of my pen names and finish another full length novel for another one. I'm keeping up with tracking and increasing my cardio minutes this week too. It's definitely harder to get back into the routines now than it was a few years ago! LOL

Take care!

Good morning everyone!

Well, stitches and steri strip are off and everything looks great! So great that the dr says I am healing so well that he cannot justify to my S&A pay advisors to be off for 4 more weeks!!! I only get 2 more weeks off! So I am happy that my healing process is better than expected, but not happy that I only get a total of 4 weeks off.
emoticon But I did get to put on a regular bra yesterday and it felt so good and its so cute!!! I cant wait to wear my cute new summer tops with my cute bras!!!

Cori, Home inspectors can be real jerks!!! The one that came to our house when we sold, was the same way!!! He was there for 2 hours and wrote down the stupidest stuff, because he could find anything REALLY wrong!!! We had to do the same as you did...offer more on closing and make them sign an "as is" clause. We put that in so that they could not come back on us for anything stupid. I hope everything goes good for you guys from here on out! So exciting to be starting a new journey!!!

Well, I have to get going...things to do today and places to go!
Bye for now!
Lisa

Hi girls. Sorry for being MIA. In a real time crunch here. Had house inspection and the inspector was an idiot. He actually said that the outside gas lines (which belong to the gas company) need painted gray because they were rusted a little. He also said that the outside handle on our sliding doors wasnít original (ya think, itís a 20-year old house thereís gonna be parts ďnot originalĒ), the deck needed re-stained. He wrote up so much insignificant, non-defective items like these that the buyer basically wanted everything on the house ďfixed.Ē He said we had one (1) shingle missing so the whole roof needed replaced! He spent 2 Ĺ hours inspecting our 1355 sq ft house and still didnít inspect/turn on the air conditioner. He said weather conditions prevented him from doing so. It was sunny and in the 60s the day of inspection but the weather prevented him from checking it. So he has to come back another day and inspect the a/c. This inspector evidently doesnít understand the function of being an inspector, which is to point out defective items and/or safety hazards. It didn't take an inspector 2 1/2 hours to inspect our 3700 sq ft house (plus basement) we sold before moving here! So in the end, we offered $2000 in closing costs and the buyer took it. It was a long, tedious weekend but we made it through. Appraisal is tomorrow and we are having a moving sale on Saturday. Iíve been working, going to PT and then packing and pricing every evening. Iím starting to peter out but canít stop just yet. Iíve turned in my notice at work and Mike will turn his in when he goes back next week. Weíve made arrangements to see Amelia one last time before we move. I am contacting a Realtor in Bradenton next week to start lining up some places to see once we arrive. Mikeís brother and sister-in-law in Bradenton are also looking and lining up some housing and job leads for us. So it is all getting very real for us. Sorry I donít have time or energy to post to everyone right now but hopefully we will get things under control more the last week when I am done with my job here. My knee is coming along slowly but surely. My last PT session was today and I will continue on my own at home now. Mike is doing better. He doesnít seem to be healing as quickly and as well as he did with his other ear 4 years ago. But he is making progress each day.

Sorry to have to run but I will try to check in again soon. Love you girls!

Good morning everyone!

Today I am getting my stitches out and steri strips off! I can't wait! They are so itchy!!
Yes, Brenda, driving has gotten a lot better. Seatbelt still bothers some, but I think that is due to the steri strips more than anything. Is Austin staying down here while working or do they go back every night? He should comes see me if they stay. Lol

Got to get rolling, I'm going to a couple garage sales before I go to dr apt.

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you all....

Trying this again...had a long post typed up and POOF hit the wrong button and it was gone....

Had a super productive day today ....I did laundry, dishes, vacuuming, sorted all of my kitchen cupboards to give stuff to Andrea and her friend Kristi who is getting her own apartment too...SO nice having more space and getting rid of stuff I really don't use....I cleaned Austin's room today...he's be SO busy it's been neglected and I couldn't stand it anymore..lol...I sorted my shoes have a tub of them to get rid of....moved winter clothes to the other closet..just LOTS of little projects I've been wanting to get done.

Jeanette....did you get your outside projects done??

Cori...How's the packing coming along?

Lisa...How are you feeling....driving getting better?

Dianne....Looks like you had a wonderful dinner on your deck tonight.

Tammy....nice having to you back with us...I'm glad you're so happy and doing well.

Denise...who are you liking on Dancing with the Stars??

Kare...I'm so proud of how well you've handled all the court stuff...I sure hope Brian will take some time to learn and grow from this whole ordeal.

Hello to everyone else checking in....going to call it a night

Brenda

A nice warm day here today. Feels like winter is finally behind us.

Tammy sounds like everything is going well for you. I am glad that your hubby is supportive - it makes such a difference. Glad to have you back...

Jeanette, sounds like a nice day. Kind of taking it easy today I had another headache last night but I am hoping to start working on my flower beds in the back this week. I noticed that my tulips are blooming today and there was no sign of that on Sunday. Amazing what a few days of rain and warmth can do...

Brenda how nice to have everyone close by. I hope it works out for Andrea and Jim.

Brian is doing well. He see the probation officer next Monday and then every 2 weeks for awhile. The officer said in all likely hood after the paperwork is set up, that Brian will be considered low risk and may only have to check in every 6-8 weeks. I won't be going back with him unless he asks but I think it will be fine. I'm hoping he will use this time to reflect on what happened and maybe how he can make some positive changes in his life. He see the cardiologist in a couple of weeks and I know he is going to be in trouble as he has done nothing for weight loss/fitness. He also goes the same week to see an eye specialist as he has been seeing double for awhile and the eye Dr says it may be the start of glaucoma. His mom and 2 siblings both had it...

Anyways just wanted to check in and say hello to everyone. Have a good day!

Hello everyone!

I'm at the start of three days off from work. Living here in Washington is a heck of a lot better than in California. I love it here and when I tell folks that it's like Michigan with mountains they know what I mean. Yes it rains more than in California but it's not the constant gloom that many think of when they think of Washington.

Getting to move around to different veterinary hospitals has been a life-saver for me for my career. I wanted to quit. Compassion fatigue has taken it's toll on me as well as many others in this profession but having worked in areas that are economically depressed made it so much more difficult to handle. I would give anything to be able to take care of my patients no matter the costs, but that's not in the cards. One day there will be insurance plans for pets that cover more of the costs than they do now.

My husband Liam has been my rock through all of this. He doesn't sabotage my efforts to change my lifestyle (unlike the ex-husband). He goes out of his way to help me succeed and that's what I've needed all along. This time my efforts are going to pay off!

I work more hours than I did in California and at times I don't know if I'm coming or going. I try to write at least 30 minutes a day even if it's gibberish and as a result, I'm published under four pen names. I'm having a lot of fun with it and exploring genres from sweet and innocent up to the taboo monsterotica. LOL!

Well, I had better run. We're heading in to Seattle to check out a few places. Have a great day everyone!

Tammy

Good morning.....
off to an early start here, sun is shining,,,, going to be in 70's today.DH left about 2 hours ago to spray ground for planting. full speed ahead here. glad to get started, even though it makes the days a little hectic. letting grass dry off a bit then going to mow, weed whack and cut some scrub trees out of the evergreen grove.
took Luke and DDIL to the Amish area yesterday, they have a big produce/plant auction on Tuesdays...Luke loves seeing the horses, buggies wagons. then we grabbed cheese curds and veggie chips and drove around in the country side looking at all the animals. It was a great morning. Helped Beck finish staining the deck and new lattice, wanted to get it done before Lukes birthday party on Saturday.

Dianne...you looked so happy in your photo with Hannah...aren't those the greatest days?
That actually sounds really fun! Are you framing those??? bet you could find somewhere fun to hang it....great conversation piece right???

Lisa......So happy for you, bet you are starting to feel like a new woman!!!

Denise....awww don't you just love when Bree comes to stay overnight! It is the best...I miss my kids the most in the mornings so when he is here it kind of fills that void for me a bit.

Cori....Hope everything is going well and moving forward in a positive manner for you guys. Thinking of you!

Kare...how is your week going?

Brenda......good to hear Jim cares enough to want to be a better man.... right? hope that works out for Andrea and Aiyden! How nice that will be for you guys to all be so close to each other!

Hello and Happy Tuesday to you all....

WOW shame on me I haven't checked in since Thursday ....The surprise party was a HUGE success....I've seen Brian cry twice in my life...once when my brother died and once when my Dad died ...and he was actually choking back tears on Saturday...he had such a great time...it was a wonderful night. Sunday we had a benefit to go to...it was really nice too :)

Monday we met my friend Kim for lunch and then I went over and helped Andrea sort through some of her tubs for her move....

Today I worked then picked Aiyden up on my way home...we ate dinner then took him for a walk into town...so much fun!

I've been doing great staying on track....getting some kind of walk in just about every day now...getting my water in and staying on track with the food...just waiting for the scale to catch onto how good I'm doing...lol

I have tomorrow off.....planning on doing laundry....cleaning some stuff up in Austin's room to get him ready for his move to take over Mom and Andy's house...he started his new job so he's not home much and won't have a lot of time to do it so figure I'll start it. We're having a get together Saturday night and I'll need to move our 2 big recliners out of the living room into his room so need to make room.

Lisa....I'm SO glad you're doing so well....Austin is in Dover area working this week :) We're hoping to get to the camper soon..I will let you know as soon as we know...probably not until mid May. Mom and Andy are moving to the apartments here by us....Andrea and Jim will be in the first building on the right, Mom and Andy will be 2 building on the right and Jim and I are still last building on the right. Austin and his buddy Kylund are taking over renting Mom and Andy's house from us...so LOTS of moving and shaking the next month and a half....it will be great once we're all done....lol

Kare...hope Meghann will take her time and be sure about the move...hard to watch our kids make their own decisions but in the end they have to figure it out.

Dianne....such a bummer on your Mom's treatments...cancer is just so awful.

Denise....sounds like you're keeping yourself busy...that's good!!!! Does Kelly have a name picked out yet?

Tammy...glad to see you popping in....I LOVE the SP app on my phone...makes it all SO simple!!

Cori....hope the packing is going good...you and Mike still healing ok?

Tina...miss you girl!

Jeanette....OHHHHH the Andrea saga....lol There WAS a new guy in the picture from Thanksgiving until mid January....turned out to be a habitual liar...not really sure anything he said was the truth....I'll fill you in when we get together...but long story short...he up and left the state....haven't heard a word from him. Andrea's ex Jim went for counseling and got on some medication for his depression/negativity and he had asked Andrea if they could try again and since he did what she asked and went for help she feels like she needs to see if it could work and so far he's been COMPLETELY different....he's 100 % standing by Andrea and the baby...willing to raise it as his own...so we shall see ....they are moving into an apartment here by us ...will be great having them close by.

Well getting late...going to call it a night....I'll pop in tomorrow :)

Hugs,
Brenda

Jeanette - 2 inches, good for you! Know it will help. We got a few sprinkles yesterday, so many have not even started planting "waiting for it to rain" is what they say but...how long do you wait? We're about half done with corn - started beans yesterday. Mom's cancer is lung cancer - we'll find out more on Thursday. I hope there is a trial that she will qualify for if that is the next route.

Tammy - welcome back!

Cori - hows the knee? I'm sure your in a packing frenzy right now - be careful!

Brenda - I smile every time my phone chirps .... I know it's your or my DDIL getting a workout in! I've been busy around the yard and shop but not really anything that can be "logged". Weight staying about the same - hoping it will get warmer out! We did hit 66 today!

Had a bad weekend - was sweeping the shop and the metal handle broke on the broom and when I tried to straighten it I pinched my middle finger on my left hand in the crease. Took awhile to get it to stop bleeding - thought I'd taken a big chunk out but just cut it really good - looks better today but it numb and tingly...but no infection. Just limits what I can do! I've been working on an old dresser for Hannah - am "repurposing" it into a wine bar...it's turning out really cute. Will post a pic when I get it done. Built some shelves for my pantry today and got some weeds pulled out of a spot where I would like to put in a flower garden - mainly shade plants, it's right next to my garden shed so it will be a nice little place to sit and relax. Ok sounds like Don is heading home - going to do some grilling. Have a great night girls...

Good afternoon everyone!
Well tomorrow will be 2 weeks post op and my stitches come out on Thursday! Yay! I still feel great! No pain except for on my sides where he did the liposuction, there is still a little bruising from that. My incisions are so itchy though...it drives me crazy some days! LOL
I actually went bra shopping today, only for sport bras though, as I wont know my true size for about 3 months. But they make such cute sports bras for smaller boobs!! I bought 3! But I spent like a 1/2 hour in the store just looking at all the possibilities for later on! emoticon

Brenda, When will you guys be going to the camper? I will be off till after Memorial Day weekend! I want to come hang out sometime!

Jeanette & Denise, I am so glad you are getting some good one on one time with Luke and Bree! It has got to be so fun! I cant wait to be a grammy! Seeing all you guys write about your grandbabies makes me so excited! but I will just have to wait!

Cori, hope the packing is going good for you guys and the move will be smooth!

Tammy, way to get back on track! I am hoping to be able to go for long walks after my stitches are out. I know I cant exercise heavily, but I at least want to walk.

Well, I am going to go enjoy this wonderful sunshine. Take care everyone!
Lisa
