I can commiserate with you, Nancy. I have a similar problem. I'm trying to send dog harnesses to my son in New Mexico and bought the wrong size yesterday by mistake. It's from Amazon. I ordered the right size today and attempted to cancel the other order. I do need two--so since I was unsuccessful at stopping the wrong order, I guess I'll have to return it and ask for a refund. But I wonder if I should order another one or ask for them to replace it with the smaller size.

Something to gripe about. Now I have. I'll get on to something more constructive.

I went to the Mall to return a jacket I had bought my grandson for Christmas - I drove around trying to find a parking spot for about 30 minutes - you know up and down the rows following shoppers returning to their cars - then someone else who had been waiting taking it before me. Finally I spotted someone leaving and drove behind her then two other cars came up on both sides - I was there first thank goodness. It's starting to look a lot like Christmas! emoticon

Hi Sharon! So glad to see you posting on here.

Progress for my daughter who uses a wheelchair, She's gotten a weight and is putting forth the effort to eat healthy. My Personal Trainer is going to work with her as he is getting certified as a Nutritionist as well as his Personal Training. She's also agreed to have me check in with her weekly to see how it's going.

Looking forward to hearing from you Sharon.

The memorial service was really nice. the pastor mentioned Larry's love of greeting everyone with a hug & kiss. Most all of my cousins were there. I think about 12. I want to thank everyone that sent me a special message or goodie.

I went to the pool again today. I use the time to pray for others. So many needs.

Hope you all enjoy the weekend.

Karen---------My condolences to you and family.

Joyce------Well done by your congregation its always good to have one's owned place of worship.
I guess like me your husband had similar eye surgery now I can see much clearer in the operated eye but still need my glasses as well.

Patti-------- what a good idea it does save time indeed

I always cook extra and freeze a couple meals for another time so I don't have to cook everyday.
Have a great Thursday everyone!

My latest goal is to plan the next day's meals before I go to bed at night. It's beginning to feel easy...almost. I think I'll try doing it for the first 7 days of December and then make up a shopping list, too. After the past month of looking toward the next day, I'm ready to go the next step.

Joyce... that is exciting news for your church.

Tomorrow, my son will be taking sister & I to Indiana for my Uncle Larry's memorial service. He passed away Monday evening. He was diagnosed 3 years ago with ALZ. He would have turned 78 in January.

Sorry, I think things are getting back to normal now. MWeight not so much. DH had the first surgery on his eye and is doing ok. However, it looks like he will still have to wear glasses. He is so disappointed. The second one isn't until March but he is on a cancellation list in case something comes up sooner.

My doctor is confused by my tests qnd readily admits it. The diabetes tests came back normal, YAY but the thyroid was way off. Today I start on thyroid meds so we will see how that turns out. He will redo the diabetes tests next year to make sure.

Our weather has been fantastic. We are about 11C and sunny. I know it won't last but will enjoy it while we can.

Also good news. Our church has purchased a building of our own and we get the keys tomorrow. It was an Army, Navy, Airforce hall where they had several banquet and meeting rooms. We had a pledge drive to raise money for renovations and succeeded more than any one had hoped. We get to explore Sunday night and then the inside demolition will start. We hope to be in by next summer.

Sorry didn't mean to write a book. Talk to you soon. Joyce

Two Thanksgiving meals that were painless and (with small portions) didn't break my calorie range. Dealing with family matters and finding that I do have the power to stand up for myself.

Patti those are really nice. I mostly crochet, just simple knitting.

Got my stuffing done this morning and in to age until Wed when I bake. Don't know plans on Thanksgiving yet. My daughter in law was going to have it but her Mother just got out of hospital. I told her not to worry we can have later. Her Mother is 89.

If they do decide to have it I will have dressing and deviled eggs to take.

Been busy and not on computer much.
Until later have a good day everyone.

It's almost 2017, but I have finally finished #1 of the 2016 Sock-Along online Craftsy socks. There are 3 styles, and I have purchased the yarn selected by the instructor. Mine didn't exactly follow the pattern. I'm pleased, though. Now onto Socks #2.

WTG Patti. I used to be able to do more exercise, but with this osteoporosis I am really limited. Because of pain
Hope everyone has a great nights rest. Get hair done tomorrow and get some groceries. I have to take 2 dozen deviled eggs to church for our reunion.

I went to bed early last night. (about 9). I slept until almost 10. I had several potty breaks but went back to sleep. I guess working a few days really wore me out.

I'm doing well. Some good talks with good friends, both old and new. Still a little sore from the 10K on Sunday, but the Zumba session today was good to limber me up. Now I'm relaxing at home....another lovely fall day here in Washington.

It is hard to see our kids struggle & addictions & consequences are common struggles. You are in my prayers. I was very codependent for years. Breaking free took me many years.

Nice to see you posting Marsha. I have been slow at getting on all my teams lately.

Getting dark early now with the time change.

Thanks, Marsha. That is so comforting.

The 10K was fine. I was surprised to see I made a personal best on the first 5K, finished it all at a 17 minute mile ratio. My daughter and her boyfriend came, too, and we all got prizes. I went and came back, glad I didn't have to transfer her.

I'm going to stick by my guns.

Patti, so sorry you have to go through those 2 situations. I hope you are taking time for yourself. We raise our children, and think that job is done, but sometimes it isn't. I certainly will put your name in my Bible and each time I pray I include the names that have asked for prayers. God works in mysterious ways, and praying right now that he will put his healing hand on both of them, and help them with the addiction to food, and alcohol.

We are here for each other, and come in and vent anytime. I will go and look at your blogs.

Hugs and prayers to you and each one on this group.

Marsha

I hope you are all doing well. If you read my blogs, you know I've been through another crisis. This time it;s my co-dependent nature...you know that thing mothers do when their children are failing in some way. I have two--my youngest daughter who is in a wheelchair is gaining weight rather than losing. She's on Spark, but logging is "too hard" for her. I finally had to tell her that our weight difference makes it impossible for me to continue to transfer her. We use a slide board, and it's precarious, believe me! The other gal is skinny as a rail, but addicted to alcohol. She's in constant pain from two situations--a car accident and a violent boyfriend. I'd appreciate all the good energy and prayers that you can send my way...and theirs.

Good evening to all. Happy Halloween. I sat a bowl of candy on a chair on the front porch. I won't open the door after dark.

Hope everyone has a great evening, and a wonderful tomorrow which is a new Month. I personally hope I do better in November than I did this month.

Update on the cat. It looks like Xena is finally coming around and my mom seems happier with her.

Went for all the tests on Friday so now have to wait and see if the doctor calls.

Otherwise, it looks like a cool but dry halloween for the kids.

Have a great day

Good Evening Everyone
My week has been somewhat routine.Have been back and forth visiting my older daughter and her family. Temperatures remained in the 90's but today we have had showers .
Yesterday I lost my pedometer and I'm
really sad because we usually have to order it and it takes ages sometimes.
Anyway I will continue walking as much as I can.Have not done 10,000 for quite sometime though.

Have a blessed evening everyone!!
Roz

Joyce... Sounds like a good thing that you are forced to get another doctor. MY significant other had a similar situation. Dr just kept giving him drugs & I finally convinced him to tell dr he wanted heart test. He got the test & immediately referred to cardio dr. He ended up flat lining on my kitchen floor a few days before he was to get a heart bypass surgery. Fortunately, I had called the squad & they were able to revive him & he lived another 7or 8 years. Some times our drs miss things, maybe they are too rushed. Glad you are getting what you called a "wake up call".

The band was super. At 70 years old they had trouble getting up and down the stage stairs but they have not lost any of their talent. We thoroughly enjoyed the show even DH who was talking about sneaking out early before they started. He stayed right to the end including the encores.

We had to change our doctor as the old one was two hours away. This doctor is discovering things the other doctor should have told us about. It looks like we have to go for prediabetes tests. The new doctor was shocked that we hadn't been told that the sugar levels were high. He also said my thyroid was off, not dangerously so but off. So I have to go for more blood tests. Very discouraging, we had been with our previous doctor for around 25 years. So I really need to get at least those 2500 steps in and the weight off. Maybe this is a good wake up call.

Last I heard the poor cat is still scared at my mother's house. But instead of giving it time and space she had been constantly looking for her with a bright flashlight and sweeping the broom under the bed. My mom is a wonderful lady but as stubborn as can be and won't listen to our suggestions to leave it alone until she comes out on her own.

Oh well, we will see how things go.

Sorry, I have been off the computer lately. We had the Open House for my mother's 95th birthday this weekend. Fortunately the party helped to cheer her up. Her little cat, Muffin, had to be put down the week before. We had got Muffin for her about three or four years ago. It turns out that the vet figures that she was probably closer to 17 or older. It just devastated my mother. Since she lives alone in a Seniors building, Muffin was a close companion particularly during the evenings. I am not sure if she wants another one.

We usually go to visit her once a week as we live a couple of hours away and my sisters and brother try to get in as often as they can. This weekend DH and I are going to the Deerhurst resort for two nights. It was a retirement gift from the company he worked for before he retired last December. The 70s band The Stampeders are performing.

Will try to spend some more time on here but will get back to regular posting next week.

Have a great day.

Our weather has been 96--97 for the past week we are supposed to be in the rainy season but have not had much this past week.The forecast said that we will continue to have that type of weather for the rest of the week.
.
Had a very interesting and uplifting session at bible study tonight.

Hope to run a few errands tomorrow and also see how many chores I can do around the house,

Have a blessed evening everyone!

Spent the last four days with both daughters and family so I was able to be with all three grand children, which is always a joy..

Today is Harvest service in our church.We have the service in the morning where all the produce brought in ,are blessed, then we go back in the afternoon for a Cantata, after which the produce is sold off.

Had another one of those days where I slept for three hours in the afternoon, then had an hour(in the chair) when I was supposed to be watching TV so when I actually went to bed at 11, I just could not sleep!

So I'm going to get ready for church at 7.30.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

Glad to have you Linda. Please be careful.

Karen, it sounds good; getting a newer car. I know you will enjoy it. I am still driving a 98 Chevy van, high mileage and rusting. I would like to get something newer and smaller, but the Boys wonder if I will be driving much longer. Wh emoticon at can I say?

Boy, Linda, that sounds like a real hard time. glad you are better.

I have had a busy few weeks. got home from Tenn. on Monday. My granddaughters significant other was transported to hospital, put on vent & in critical condition on Tuesday night. He was transferred to a larger hospital & had many test & several days in ICU. Doctors are not able to determined what caused the breathing problems. He is doing ok now.

I bought a newer car. It is a Chevy Malibu. I am learning all the features. My Honda lasted for 8 years so it was time for a better car.

Hope you are all doing well.

Today was such a contrast to yesterday .Hot and sunny I'm sure it was about 88 F.

Thanks Mel, we're quite safe so far.We do have earth tremors in the dry season which last just a few seconds though.

My computer is working like a dream this evening.I'm so pleased.

My class is conducting Service at church this Sunday and I've completed preparing the order of Service as I'm the Leader.

Mel ------Hope your granddaughter has a safe delivery.It brings out the midwife in me when I hear about a pregnancy. Imagine some of the babies I have delivered now have their own babies!.That's life!

Have a blessed weekend everyone!
Much Love,
Roz.

This morning Katie the gardener comes to give us some outdoor help. I need to make my list for her. There's so much that need doing. Also, Ashley, a granddaughter comes on Fridays and does three hours of cleaning for us indoors. Her baby is due October 12 and we told her to do only what she feels like doing. They have a little girl and this one is a girl also. Ashley and her husband both have jobs but still struggle to make ends meet. Ashley will go back to work at her job after a few weeks at home with the baby, as I understand it. Not sure what the child care arrangements will be but her husband's mother may help some. Wish we could help more but really I am beyond that stage of life. Have done a lot of it in prior years, but at 75 it is just too much.

Happy weekend, Mel

Kayne----------Glad you are out of that slump and for. quite. a long time too.

Mel----------Going vegan could be quite challenging indeed.I have two siblings and a sil who are vegans but they eat fish.
Yes the sea is quite warm and usually calm but with the various storms in nearby areas it was very rough yesterday .
.
We are usually not directly affected by the storms but we get the rains and flash flooding in some areas.

Karen----------Ican only imagine the joy seeing that photo brought to that lady.That was such a kind gesture on your part that's what life is about.

My desk top seems to be giving up on me so have to resort to tablet which I' m not as comfortable with.
Have a blessed evening everyone !

Karen, The Amy's mac n cheese I picked up at the little store down the street was in a box similar in size to the standard Kraft Mac and Cheese. The advantage was supposed to be that it has no bad for you stuff added to it and it is made with real cheddar. It also calls for only two tablespoons of butter instead of a quarter cup (which is three Tbs. I think) I think I could have boiled the macaroni just a little longer but otherwise it was pretty O.K. Turned out the great grandaughter opted to spend the night at home so DH and I ate the mac n cheese and chile con carne ourselves. Harrumph!

Waving to everyone else,
Mel

Mel.. I do not usually read political books but Armageddon is very interesting & much easier to read than I thought it would be.

The resident was really happy with picture of her brother. He had eye surgery so doesn't wear glasses that was a big change. She hadn't seen him for about 30 years.

You mentioned Amy's Mac & cheese? Is that the frozen product? I have tried several of Amy's products available in Ohio & really like them.

Karen, how are you liking the book, Armageddon by now? I kinda hate it when I am pressed with a library due date and sometimes I just have to give up on the book. Sounds like you are having a busy interesting day. How did yr resident like seeing the photo? I would think she would feel a lot of things.

Roz, Is your sea water fairly warm? Good for you swimming and getting some walk time in.

Marsha, How are things going with you today?

Kayne, if you are reading, could you tell us (or me, anyway) how long you had envisioned the About Me exercise to continue? It'd be helpful to me to have a finish date to it, rather than keep going on indefinitely. I have been thinking about you and hope you are coming out of the slump. emoticon

I am working on my transition to Veganism, or Plant-Based eating. It is a challenge for sure.
Great Grand daughter 12 is coming for the night. Just making chile with crackers and Amy's real cheddar mac and cheese which I hope is better for her than Kraft Mac'nCheese. Should make the real home made but don't want to drive to the market for ingredients.

Mel

Slept late again so will need to head out to pick up my GGS from bus stop soon. I need to pick up some movies at the library & then plan to visit the nursing home. Time to do the on line training again. I also have copy of picture to share with a resident. She has not seen her brother for many years. He lives in Florida & she is in Ohio. I found a FB picture of him so will surprise her with it


Have a good day!

Marsha... I am so sorry you are not feeling well & did not make it to church.

I went to my daughters last night & we watched the debate together. It was more fun that way.

I need to get off & read before I call it a day. I checked the book ARMAGEDAN from the library & it is due back Saturday. There are many others wanting to read it so I cannot renew it.

Good night

Hello Classies! It is another beautiful sunny morning in northern California. Yesterday was hot all day and into the evening and I think this may repeat today. Yesterday I had my physical therapy on left arm for an hour. It wears me out so I skipped my walk afterward. I had to pick up supper things and then prep supper. Made a tasty zucchini casserole for supper and we also ate leftovers and baked potatoes. We ate supper on the sofa while watching the first U.S. presidential debate of the US 2016 election cycle. Eldest daughter dropped in for a visit and ate with us and watched the debate too. She rarely drops by so we were pleased to spend time with her.

This evening the family celebrates the birthday of daughter number two who turns 52. We'll gather at our local ice-cream parlor for the festivities. I don't suppose she is very excited about turning 52 but is gracious to allow us all to have a little family party for the occasion.

My most important goal today is to get a good long walk done with little Rokki dog. I walked 3 and a half miles Sunday and want to improve on that. Trying to build up to five miles a day but I am a slow walker at 30 minutes per mile.

Peace be with all the Classy 70s today! Mel

ps: I am adding to Kayle's About Me exercise each day. Hope other will keep adding also. It's kinda fun and I like reading all of them.

I didn't get to church yesterday, and my week will be way off. Haven't felt too good, and haven't been on the computer that much.

Hope everyone has a great day, I guess everyone will be tuned in to the Debate tonight.

Until later, have a great day and every.

Had a good weekend.

Only three of us were able to come for dinner on Friday but we had a great time just yakking away.

Had a problem with the tshirt the church bought us greeters. It was too small. Fortunately my friend found the last extra large and it fit. Apparently the shirts came in extremely small. It was our church's 15th anniversary in our city and we had a great service on outreach followed by cake in the lobby. Exciting things are happening for us. We have been meeting in a school but are in the process of getting our own building. We take possession in December and the renovations should start shortly after that. We hope to have everything completed before next September.

DH got home from his weekend away with the guys and our niece gave birth yesterday morning to a beautiful 8 lb 14 oz baby girl who they named Samantha Lynn. Mom and baby are both doing well.

Getting ready for my TOPS meeting this morning. Not sure that my weight is down though.

Have a great Monday.

Hey folks! I have spent some time and got caught up to date with our All About Me project. I plan to keep it going but I don't know what the ending date is set for. I will go look at the directions again and see what I can discover.

I hope some of the rest of you will join me in carrying on with this interesting exercise that was started by one of our leaders. Good Heavens, I have temporarily let her name slip my memory! So sorry about that.

mel
PS: Well, I found her way down the thread a 9-14-16 and of course her name is Kayne. Now what could have happened to Kayne? She went to a lot of trouble to figure out how to do the team leadership work and started that fun thing for us and then fell off the thread somehow. Maybe more computer issues caught up with her. Hope she can get back here once again.

Not sure where those night of insomnia come from but another one got me last night.

We are going to have a week of temps getting up to the 70's. Looking forward to it.

Think I will get a shower & try for a walk today.

I watched a movie last night. MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. It was good. I have checked out 2 others from the library. ALBERT NOBBS & DESCENDANTS. The War Room is at a local church tonight. I have it on my calendar so hope I go see it.

Enjoy your weekend.

Joyce-------Have a good rest and a good weekend too.

The battery in my pedometer died about ten days ago, so I'm missing out on recording all the walking I have been doing whilst running errands this past week.Even though I'm not doing any extra exercises I am doing a lot of walking.
I need to start back swimming soon..

Bought a new microwave this morning. The old one was about 10+ years old!!!
Much love,
Roz.

Thanks, Roz
Am up early today but will head back to bed for a nap once DH leaves. Since he retired he has been working part time at a golf course, cutting fairways and rough. Once he is finished today, he has a two hour drive to Pigeon Lake where he will meet up with our son, his two brothers and a nephew for a guys golfing and card playing weekend. Once a year the guys get together without the girls and children just for some fun. Hubby is hoping not to golf as his back gets sore but will enjoy his time with the men.

It is 5.30 and he is getting ready to head out. Hope you have a great day.

Looks like a fun evening with the other ladies coming to dinner.
Entertaining 3 year olds could be very exhausting indeed but there is nothing to compare to the joy it gives both the grands and grandparents too. emoticon

Interesting weekend coming up. Since our anniversary is tomorrow and my DH will be away, we went out for dinner on Tuesday. Not good for my weight as we went to the Mandarin.

Yesterday we had a playdate with my DGS and the daughter of our Pastor and his wife. Both kids are three. My grandson gave her a huge hug and then they played really well together. We baked cookies and they each decorated some to take home, then the colouring books came out and then some outside play. We had lunch and then Emma's mom picked her up. By the end of the morning Emma was also calling me Grandma. It was so sweet. My grandson spent the rest of the day with me and his parents came over for awhile when the oldest was out of school. Great day but exhausting.

Tomorrow I have invited the ladies from our small group at church for dinner but not sure how many will make it. It looks like there may only be four of us but it will still be nice to have a girls night. I am the oldest and the others are in their late 30s to 60. It will be good company with Bill being away.

Have a wonderful day and a great weekend if I don't get back for a day or two.
Joyce

My dear husband had a beautiful voice and "A Cradle In Bethlehem" was one of his many solo renditions at church at Christmas time .

Proverbs; 3:5,6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart lean not on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct your path.
