Good Morning!

Great insight To!
Kurlie good luck! Some of the work Hopkins does on brain is interesting. We have an instructor at work who's studied it and uses some concepts in her teaching. Students love it.

Been busy. Nice my son is on leave but can make life a bit hectic. lol

Been feeling my diverticulitis is going to flare up. I think it could be the antibiotics I've been on contributing to it. Not sure but I'm done with the antibiotics today.

Got a laser pointer to exercise Brandy. It's so hilarious!!! Except when DH does it a 4am with her lol

Have a great day everyone!
Love light and peace.

Thought= let go of the negative and the past. Learn and grow.

Peaches - Your self-reflection about the technology job was amazing and excellent. My guess is that you are a very gifted problem solver. It is outstanding that you are able to articulate the pros and cons about the technology opportunity vs staying where you are in your current position. You did it so well!

Peaches, I haven't read enough of your posts to give you valuable advice, but I would like to tell you that my impression is that your decision making ability is intact. You have done the hard self-reflective work and you have been able to see and articulate that staying vs going has two positive outcomes. At the same time you have been able to articulate two negative outcomes.

Peaches, could you now look at the two outcomes and ask yourself how you ordinarily make a selection: choosing among the better of two good things vs choosing to protect yourself from the most harm from two bad things. You can then determine if your decision is going to be how you would ordinarily choose or if you are intentionally wanting to choose in a new way. Your self reflection was awesome. Good luck! Tom

Greetings! Seems everyone is keeping busy. I am chugging along here. Enjoying my volunteer work and spending time with family - both furry and non-furry. Tolerating work itself but knowing I am working towards a goal helps me get through each day.

Just enrolled in a Differentiated Instructional teaching class that starts next week. Also studying Whole Brain teaching. I'm starting to get excited again! Hopefully I'll land a teaching job if not this fall then next. Until I do I will continue to take courses to put me in a better position when I interview.

Much love to all!

Peaches - I'll pray for continued guidance for you but it appears you know what you need to do.

Jetta - yesterday was spent relaxing for the most part. The hubby and I did go look at cars. Even if they somehow miraculously find a way to fix his car, it will never be the same and he does not want it. We should know this week if they are going to total it. If they do, we might be able to settle with the insurance in the next couple of weeks. If not, it will be about two months.

Oh - I edited my post from the other day - it was 20.5 pints of salsa, not 2.5. Big difference. My tomatoes are still producing well and I should have another day of processing in the next two weeks.

So the new job hasn't been offered to me ... yet ... but here is what I believe right now.

My head says, "No don't do it. You have other people depending on you in the work you are doing today. You are in a high visibility position with lots of well-positioned supporters. You need to stay with what you committed to."

My heart says, "Are you kidding me??? This is an opportunity to work directly in technology again. You love technology. You earned your master's degree in technology. You've been complaining for years about not being directly in technology any more. You have to go for it."

My spirit says, "This is not your opportunity. Who are you to play it small and shrink into a level 4 position?"

Jetta, you said something about does this hold me back in the past. I used to do technology work and while it is true that I loved it, it is also true that I have grown beyond it.

I think I want the technology position because I believe the if I lose my job getting another position in technology is more likely to pay me what I'm accustomed to earning. But that is fear-based ... and it might not be true.

This is where I am today.

Thanks for asking.

WOW Alicia, where do you live? We haven't had rain here in a long time. Our rainfall for the whole last year was 5 inches but our normal rainfall is only 10 inches so we are VERY dry. Hope to get more rain this winter. Hope your hubby's tooth gets better, that is miserable.

Claire, what did you do today on your vacation day?

Hi hi Joanie!!!

Peaches, any decision yet?

Everyone have a great week. Love ya, Jetta

Good Morning Everyone

emoticon start here this morning but we really needed it. Seemed like every rain storm that swept through missed our area. Today driving Mom to her specialist for her check in. That means an early supper at Red Lobster as that is my mother's favourite place to go. Hubby is really suffering from a toothache but is hopefully getting it taken care of tomorrow - that is his quickest appt. Me, I am tracking our food and our exercise. We are really doing well together.

Hugs to all

Good morning all. Vacation day today and a good day to recover from salsa making yesterday. My middle daughter and I canned 20.5 pints. I posted a picture in a blog.

Claire, Jetta and Cheryl - thank you so much for reading my long post and providing your guidance. At the end of the day I know I should follow my gut, but I am having difficulty hearing it. I'm trying to get still with it this weekend so I can hear my gut.

I once heard to go through the process of what does your head tell you, what does your heart tell you and finally what does your spirit tell you ... then follow your spirit.

I've committed to what I am doing today and I feel like I would let an awful lot of people down if I make a move. Part of what I'm doing today was a goal of mine, but the other part of it wasn't a goal of mine. I remain open to the fact that the universe wants greater things for me than I can imagine for myself.

Claire - so sorry about your DH's car. He has to go through the stages of mourning to get to the other side. There is no other way to deal with it. Depression is one step in the process and eventually he will get to acceptance.

Cheryl - your situation is similar to mine except the money part of the equation is minimal. If they offer me the position they will keep my current salary. For your situation, if you really want to be back in the classroom then I would put my resume out there and see what comes up. One thing I learned is that at least by getting the interview I got the chance to explore the possibilities further.

Love you all - have a great weekend.

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! Mine was wet as it rained for the first half of the day but we did inside things, grilled when the rain stopped and relaxed.

Peaches - Like Jetta said - go with your gut. If the money jump would not severly cramp your ability to make ends meet then go for it! You gotta love what you do!

I am contemplating a similar issue and mine does have to do with money that would cramp our ability to make ends meet. I have a teaching degree (Nursery - 8th) but never landed a teaching job. For one reason or another I just couldn't get one. I enjoy prek- grade2 so my range is shortened. I made it to a preschool teaching position (enjoyed it!) but complications to pregnancy had me quit. Stayed home 6 years to raise them and I then took part time office jobs to help with bills when kids were small. Landed in a school office and 8 years later I make a lot of $$ as the secretary to the superintendent. I really want to try to get back in the classroom but with no experience I face tough competition. I could take a teacher's aide position at 1/3 my current salary for experience but that would severely cut into bill money and my son will be a junior this year - college is soon! There is no guarantee I could land a teaching job if I was a teacher's aide so I am in a quandary.

Anyone have any thoughts? I am putting my resume out anyway and going to enroll in a course here and there this summer to add to my resume to show I am still in the game.

PEACHES, As Debbie Ford would say, does it propel you into what you REALLY want or does it hold you back and stuck in the past. Go with your gut feeling, take the money out of it and go with what your heart is telling you. Ego is money and if you truly love what you do and could do it without pay just because you love it so much. than go for it. Your peace and love is more important than money and ego. Stress rakes havoc in your body so which would make you more happier, more fulfilling etc?

Only you can make that choice, trust your heart over ego though and you can't go wrong.

Bless you my friend, whatever you choose, is the right one OK

Claire, his ego is hurting bad huh! hope he gets out of the depression soon, it is a shock to anybody in an accident, a shock that he could have died. Hope he realizes that things are only things and he is more important than things. You can't bring things with you.

Everyone have a safe and blessed 4th. Love, Jetta

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Peaches - that is a really tough decision. My only thoughts on it are whether or not the position would make you happier and how would it make you feel if you never got promoted again. I'm going to share the DH's story with you. It may or may not help.

The DH's company was bought out by a large/well-known corporation within the last 2-3 years. When they converted everyone from the old company's payroll structure to the new structure, they moved people from 5 levels to 4 levels. The DH's position was higher than most in his department, but everyone in his department is now on the same level with him. So, he either got demoted or they all got promoted, depending on how you look at it. He is also at the top of his pay grade, so no more raises only annual bonuses that don't make up for it. To make matters worse, the new company has a ban on promoting people to the next level. He is essentially stuck as they won't move him laterally to a different department (with a different pay structure) either. What he does is very specialized, so changing companies is tricky too.

I don't know if that will help you or not, but at 50 years old, he doesn't have a lot of options and he knows it.

Ang - make some time for yourself. Even if it isn't long, it does help. Just drinking my coffee on my patio alone in the morning can mean a world of difference to my day, especially on weekends.

No, the wreck was not his fault. He's OK physically, but the car he loves so much is ruined. It's his first ever new car and he was very particular about it. He spent many hours researching and deciding on just the right car. It was also a collectible car, as there was a limited production. He'll be OK, but it's really hard on him. He's been a car buff most of his life. He was disgusted yesterday, but today he's hitting the depression phase - it's hard to watch.

Praying for rain for you Jetta. We are about to hit our dry season so I'll be utilizing the rain barrels more. Ang - we had an overly wet/cool summer last year. I'm glad you're safe, but I totally understand wanting a little less rain for a change.

So I need your thoughts ... what is your "reading" on this?

I have a very good job, although it is a bit stressful from time to time ... and now is one of those times. I've been rewarded for doing good work by being asked to take on another program. The work that I do is all around data with very little software development. It is not necessarily what I aspire to, but I am being recognized for my good work and I am considered a leader in my organization.

My current work is a lot right now, but I can manage that and ask for the help that I need. I am a level 5 in my position and earn a 10% success sharing bonus because of my level each year. I guess you could say I am quite successful.

A job in my same company managing software development came open in early May and I applied for the job. It is a level 4 position so taking it would be a demotion. I applied because I love software engineering and it is an opportunity to get back into the software world ... I also think there is a little ego in that because I have a possibly incorrect belief that if I need to find anther job in the future paying what I am accustomed to making, it would need to be in software/technology. The opportunity would be to help the software organization improve their processes and instill discipline to execute more successfully ... something that I am pretty good at.

The way things work at my employer is that they would probably give me the position at my current salary, but my success sharing bonus would drop to only 5% (and it impacts my pension, too). In time (and I don't know how much time) I could be promoted back to a level 5.

I interviewed for the level 4 position today and I killed it! I nailed every question and blew away the folks who were interviewing me. I could do the job easily. There are some challenging resources in that organization, but you run into that everywhere. I should know in about a week if they will offer me that position.

I am told that if they advertised the position as a level 4 they have to offer it as a level 4 and they cannot make commitments on when that would change. I have another colleague who took a demotion and she was promoted back to a level 5 within the year. But the company that owns my company has really cut back on promotions.

From a pure income point of view I don't really want to give up my 10% bonus opportunity. It also rubs my ego the wrong way to think that after 5 years at a level 5, I will be a level 4 like so many other people in my company. I kind of feel like this may be my last opportunity to get back to technology, but I don't know that that is true. That could be fear-based.

Some of my colleagues that I've discussed this with believe I have much more opportunity in my current position. But part of me still wants to be associated with software and technology.

Anybody get a read on this?

Thanks for any thoughts you have.

Claire, what happened in the car accident?

It wasn't your hubby's fault I hope.

Haven't been on for a while. Working hard on finishing the artwork for the children's book. Scanning all the art work to computer tomorrow, so I can put it into book form and add the words. We thought by presenting it to a publisher in a final form it would stand a better chance of being accepted. Hate my job so much - trying not to be depressed and thankful that I have a job - could be much worse.

Bad storms came in last night and took out trees and power lines. We were lucky. Dropped the temps down today and downright cold. We've had a lot of rain, and I wish I could share it with those who need it more than we do.

Rented a cottage on a Lake in Michigan for the week, like we did last year. Open house for family, so not necessarily a vacation for me. I really need some down time.

Hope everyone has a good weekend with perfect weather. Ang

Take care Anne, I'm thinking of you sending you good thoughts dear friend.

Will try that grounding today, ty Jetta.

4th= Adam will be home from Cuba going to grill out. Guess Joe will come too. Not going to be good, he's avoiding us and Adam asked me last night if Joe put the tires on his car etc he was to do and I told him no. Step daughter isn't coming bc she going to her cousins (on her mom side) and I feel dh is a bit let down over it. She could delay the time going as that party goes on all night.

Fighting this swimmers ear in my right ear. It is painful, into the jaw. Giving it another day of my remedies before going to a dr.

Today thought= Don't let the world get you down, focus on you.

Ok, I am here now. My technical problem was that I had installed a keylogger and needed to take myself off. Didn't want all my key strokes, screen shots, etc. being recorded.

I can't mention it on facebook but my granddaughter is here for the summer. She is going for therapeutic horseback riding lessons. I love the farm and the trainer. I am thinking of taking lessons myself in the fall if I am still in the area. Also set her up for a beginner's kayaking trip (only $8) and a photography trip for 10-13 year olds ($8). Our department of natural resources are the best around!

Something has happened within my family and I could use any light, love, prayers that you have to spare. I hosted 5 archangels in my home and it really made a difference the last 5 days. They will be coming back to me in 10 days again. This is my big transition time coming up and I know it is going to be very difficult but I feel I am ready and know things will be better on the other side.

In case I am not back on for a while I wanted to say that you have been the best friends anyone could ask for over the years. I love you all and wish you peace, love and happiness. I will continue to bring all of you into my healing sessions, meditations and prayers.

Blessing to all of you and your families.

make sure you ground and protect yourself. I learned a new way to protect you, well for me it is new.

Just pretend you are zipping yourself up starting at the 1st chakra up to your lower lip, in the front then do it from the back at the first chakra up your back, around your head and down to your upper lip then touch the two together and now you are protected.

If someone is screaming at you, just unzip them and when they are done, make sure you zip them back and not leave them open. It diffuses them and they let off the steam before they give it to you.

Love you!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Monday already! Weekends go by too fast!

TY Jetta. I'm trying, in a slight funk though.

Going to be hot and humid here again. With all this so early in summer, makes me wonder what it will be like in July and August when we typically get this weather.

Got the rest of my plants in. I like my flower garden.

Today thought=Do a small act of kindness without anyone knowing. Watch it spread.

Love light and peace Joanie

Joanie, somethings that is the best medicine for them to grow up, even though it hurts us so much. Bless you girl

Claire, I thought that too, it was the day before our checks too. left over from the previous month huh. It was about 100 dollars on line new so it is a great find. WOW, 90... bless her.

Cheryl, that is great about your daughter. Love it. so happy to see you with us, it warms my heart.

Ann, technical problems are never fun. good to see you too.

almost have everything back together in my home. Looks and feels so different. Everything looks HUGE since we took off all the wood paneling. I have pictures on FB if anyone wants to see. Learning lots with the energy work. Loving it. My Ford training is almost done for this module. it was SO MUCH WORK, there is 1 more module before I am a certified integrative coach.

Have a great rest of your Sunday. Know you are LOVED!!!!

Hi everyone. Busy working around house weekend. Son is home from Cuba next week and will be staying with us until he goes to Ft. Roberts.

Middle son lost yet another job. Has no car, no license etc. Has a slight bad attitude right now. We've helped him as much as we are going to financially there is no more. This is tearing me up inside as I am already estranged from my oldest son. Now, I want to step away from this one as well so he may finally grow up at 29. Geeze. We thought he was on the right path now we wonder....
giving it all up to God, please take this off my shoulders all my worries and AA Michael please remove all astral cords from me as well as the lower entities and negativity that have attached to me. Let it all be born again in the purest energy. I ask for protection. thank you. I am grounded, I feel the white energy come into me and help me
This I ask in love light and peace Aum.

Today thought=keep busy as not to let the ego and negativity take root

Greetings! I've been offline a few days but had a minute this morning so I thought I would check in. Sounds like everyone is keeping busy.

My daughter is loving her volunteer work at the equine therapy barn. She is working the day camp program. My volunteer work is interesting. I love being with the horses - they are beautiful animals. My "rider" is sweet and I believe she is autistic. Difficult to understand her most of the time but a gentle soul. I am learning how to guide her while she rides. I feel awkward as I am not sure of my full range of duties but I'll get the hang of it.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

TGIF one more day of work!

That's a great find Jetta. If you plan on babysitting, it could come in handy for you! Keep looking for used baby items for your home as they out grow things quickly. Even join some sites on FB. That's how I found my gazelle exerciser for only $30 and I use it daily!

Claire Happy Bday to MIL. Hope all goes well. Hope you feel better.

Yesterday was a so so day at work. They finally announced our new directer in my department etc. They are also going to move our offices around too. Since the old director was fired one employee has had a resistance to the change as she was also friends with her. Now this makes her feel worse. Resistance is futile. You have to go with the administration. I have grounded and put up protection rose and asked AA Michael to keep all the negativity away from me. I'm not happy I have to move my office, but hey, gotta do it. So today, I start packing up my office for the move. Mine is the first move in line.

today's thought=things happen for a reason don't dwell on it, at times changes don't look good or feel right or are what we want but it is what it is in the cosmic plan which we are all a part of.

Jetta - it seems your abundance is going well. That is a nice porta-crib.

We had a department outing yesterday afternoon and had a blast. It's nice to get away from the office sometimes and we all got to go home early.

After work was physical therapy - the stretches are helping a lot and we started strength training yesterday. They seems simple enough but I'm a little sore this morning. I'm going to try to do the strength training at least every other day. I'm doing the stretches almost every day and I started back on the elliptical some this week. It feels good to be exercising regularly again.

Tomorrow is my MIL's 90th birthday. I'll be cooking this afternoon and tomorrow morning. There's little chance of over indulgence since I'll be avoiding gluten at the pot-luck luncheon, unless the DH's nephew cooks - he has Celiac and likes to bake. Oh my!

Peaches, my client didn't show up, she forgot so we will try again tomorrow.

GUESS WHAT? While I was on my morning walk, there was a free portable crib on a driveway. I just happened to go by there when she put it out. I was shocked that she was giving it away, I asked her if I could pay for it and she said no. It is really nice too. Not sure if I will keep it for my gandbabies or give it to my daughter for her new baby in Nov. With 5 kids, I should have lots of grandbabies someday huh!

Don't forget to write your checks tomorrow. Will send an email reminder.

nitey night all!!!

Thanks Peaches, Claire, Jetta.

Yes, THURSDAY finally been a long week. I am already pondering what to do this weekend (housework wise lol)

We will have our new president at work next week. This will be an interesting transformation. Hoping she moves us forward with a new administration and gets away from past thinking.

Today's thought- The old saying was think before you speak. Now, it should be think before you post, tweet, etc. I see so much on social media that is stupid and irrelevant that it makes me wonder what people are thinking and where is this world heading.

Love light and peace to you all!!!

Joanie, Maya Angelou said, "when you know better you do better."

In every situation you can only do the best you can do with what you know at the time. If you had different information you might make a different choice.

Jetta, how do your class go? I'm sure you did great with your mentor listening in.

It's Thursday - we are on the downhill side now. Everybody have a great day.

That is scary Joanie.

Class went well, tonight I have a review call with my mentor listening in on my coaching session. I always get VERY nervous but tonight. I will just do it right???? ok, just trying to talk myself into it. Its in 1 1/2 hours, gotta get ready. wish me well.

Today I was in training again all day but did manage to put a coat of primer on my office so that is good. Will paint it tomorrow, hope to get my office done by this weekend. I miss my own space to heal and meditate.

Gotta study now.... LOVE YOU!!

That's right Joanie - I eat more than my DH. emoticon I just eat low calorie quantity. Also, we haven't eaten dinner at home in many weeks.

Very sad about the student. Thoughts and prayers for the family (and you).

Excellent thought again.

Wednesday. I'm always tired midweek.
Hope class went well Jetta.
Claire, GOOD for you!!! It's hard to diet here bc my dh does most the cooking since he's retired. He doesn't get that I or women for that fact can't eat like men. lol I try though.

Had a scare at work yesterday. A student od'd in the library from heroin. It hit home and I am still shook up over it. Lots going through my mind.

Today's though= learn from the past, move on and try to do better in all you do. Reflect.

Good advice Joanie. I've made some adjustments in my eating lately that should start paying off soon and should help reduce our food cost. End result is that I should be eating less.

Hey, it's Tuesday!! Been busy. Good Claire! Good news Kurlie. As we age our muscles get tight, lose flexibility. Well, mine are always tight. Stretching and yoga helps with the hip issues for me.

Going to be another humid one. I don't deal with humidity well at all. Even my eyeglasses feel tight this morning! UGH.

Have a good day and today's thought=think before you eat and chew thoroughly savoring your food. Good day.

Happy Monday all. I went for a 4 mile run/walk yesterday morning and am just a little sore today. My physical therapist has me doing some stretches that seem to be helping my hip/back, so I'm beginning to feel like I can do more. YAY!

Have a great week everyone!

I am very jealous of all the gardens going on here. I did not get around to preparing my garden for plants. Way to o busy. Maybe I will now that things have calmed down a bit and try for a later summer crop.

Jetta - you are right. We are all the same. What we differ in is the way we deal with it and how we hide it from others.

It was a beautiful day for the family gathering at my home. Kids swam, family members conversed. A great event. Of course I over indulged but hey - I enjoyed myself. Recital is this evening but this time I only have to sit back and be entertained and not do any of the entertaining.

Biopsy came back clean. I go back in 2 months for another ultrasound. Before I go hysterectomy route I am thinking of ablation. Was thinking pill but now I am thinking that messing with hormones may not be the way to go since they told me my levels did not indicate anything out of the ordinary.

Another beautiful day - going out to enjoy it before the recital later this evening.

Jetta - I have severe CRS disease (can't remember stuff). It sounds like a wonderful trip. We all have fears.

Peaches it sounds like you have a terrific green thumb. I love your hail guard idea. We've had hail once but it didn't bother the garden fortunately. I picked a foot long cucumber yesterday. Apparently the breed I bought gets rather large but I've been picking them smaller. I picked more squash, zucchini, peppers and cherry tomatoes this week. The tomatoes don't always make it to the house. emoticon My squash and zucchini are being attacked by a bug that decimated them last year. I'm going to work hard to get them under control to keep my plants healthy. Isn't growing food fun? I'm experiencing pumpkin for the first time ever. The vines are thick and they seem to grow a foot per day.

Alicia, great to see you posting. Am so excited you are here.

Way to go Peaches, you can do it, sounds like you are doing a great job.

Joanie, thanks my friend.

Will be so happy once we get our home back in order. the tile is still drying and needs sealing, the trip put in place and still need to paint the hallway and my meditation room once we move the furniture out of there back in the family room. Still another month to get all done then we go on vacation to Zion, Bryce and Grand Canyon for 2 weeks.

Love to you all.

Jetta, it sounds like you had quite a moving experience. Can't wait to hear more.

I went to a professional symposium in April and they had a speaker who was a very accomplished woman who had achieved amazing things in her career just in her 30's. She said that every time she made a big leap, like to a position of general manager, she was terrified. She said, "do it scared!" It was so validating to hear that even people who appear quite successful get scared. I think that is kind of like what you found, Jetta.

Summer is here. We've had interesting weather. One day will be mild and the next day will be in the 90's. We've had some severe storms, but no real damage out here.

My cucumbers are going great guns! My tomatoes have had a slow start. We now have a hail guard up to protect the tomatoes and the cucumbers are in a location where they already had a hail guard. I think I've said before that this is a big experiment for me ... I've never grown anything before.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Peaches

Claire, if you read your newsletter, (just teasing) I said I would be at the Ford Intensive part in Miami for a week. It was sure INTENSIVE, I grew, cracked open and bawled over and over. healing old scars. I then came home to my house being torn apart from the remodel and they had kicked us out so we didn't walk on the tile. I took my son camping 2 miles away at a lake with our tent. I still really didn't relax a whole lot. kept having to run errands and things for the tile guys as well as my own errands. I did not plan on the food part so had to keep going out and buying the boys food lol.

I was told that I reminded Kelly of Sleeping Beauty and I was even brave enough to be videoed for a promotion for their work and I said. "Well now, Sleeping Beauty finally is awake."

I will have to blog about things that happened. They had everyone of us get up on the stage with the microphone tell everyone looking at us what we were most afraid of. EVERYONE all felt the same. they were all afraid that if people really knew them and found out that they were stupid, ugly, weak etc that they would hate them. both Male and Female said all this. THIS BLEW ME AWAY!!!

WE ARE ALL THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU AND I AND EVERYONE ELSE OUT THERE IN THIS WORLD ARE THE SAME!!!!

THE SAME FEARS, THE SAME FEELINGS, THE SAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOBODY IS ANY BETTER OR WORSE THAN ANOTHER

NOBODY IN THIS WORLD IS ANY BETTER OR WORSE THAN YOU AND I!!!

IT took all of us to be petrified and share our deepest fears on stage to truly know this.

I also had a deep dream I need to post for Ang to decipher for me.

got to go read more to catch up.

know you are SO LOVED and THE SAME AS EVERYONE ELSE!!!

Blessings & Love, Jetta :-)

Your every loving act, thought & feeling blesses everyone everywhere... every time you smile, you are a channel for more love and beauty to come thru you and into our world.

Morning all!

Thanks Ang. Having kids is rough at times. lol When you think it's better, they slam you again. Oh well. And I agree being a member of the UFC (uterus free club) it was the best thing that happened to me, no more of those issues. You can only treat it for so long then the ultimate happens, the removal.

Storms kept me up last night. We needed the rain and a break from this August type weather. Wonder what the rest of summer will be like?

Kurlleq - glad to hear that your volunteering is going so well and that your daughter has joined you. I had a lot of problems dragging out several years with my uterus, and went through several treatments that ultimately ended with a hysterectomy. The hysterectomy was the best solution for me. I am healthier and free of all the problems I suffered through.

Joanie - I can relate. It has taken a lot of years and tears, but my son finally turned his life around. Paying for the mistakes he made really hurt him - hurt all of us. It took 20 years from hitting bottom to getting back up. Hope you don't have to wait that long.

Having some bad storms - hoping that none of them turn into something worse. Ang

Hi, thanks for the input Claire and Kurlie. Glad you're back Alicia.
Jetta, Can't wait to hear your tales!!!

I'm a bit miffed. Caught my son lying to us but we were good enough to bail him out of jail before and get the car from impound now he's being disrespectful. I am disappointed.

I'm trying to get allmy docs from the old tower to put on a flash drive so I only have the laptop on our desk. Tedious work.

Hi All -

I just got back from a long sparkbreak and am catching up on everyone's news and such. As I move around the teams and pages I can't believe how much I missed everyone and how excited I am to be back.

Have a great spark day!
Alicia

Jetta - Can't wait to hear all about it.

My one dog, Oddie, will grab mouthfuls of dirt, mulch, cut grass and anything else he thinks is fun. He is 2 yrs old. He thinks of it as a game. He and his sister, Rosie, like to munch on uncut grass with or without an upset tummy, whenever the urge strikes. My other dog, Louie, is not a grass, mulch or dirt muncher. Depends on the dog I guess. My previous two dogs Petie - not a grass/dirt muncher and Oakley - a dirt and grass muncher also liked to dig for worms. Strange critters :)

Super busy week with my daughter's 8th grade graduation, awards night, recital and birthday all happening this week. I'll calm down maybe next week...for now I'm super stressed with the upcoming events and gathering at my house this weekend.

Try saving your egg shells, crushing them and spreading them on the ground beneath your pepper plants. If you're worried about anything with the egg shells, heat them in the oven for about 20 minutes before putting them outside.

Dogs and cats all eat grass. I was always told it was to help with upset tummy but my old lady cat eats grass every chance she gets to go outside. Anyone else?

this year the slugs are feasting on my pepper plants. They didn't touch them last year. I believe it is due to the weather we've had and the slugs bred like crazy so there's more of them.

Has anyone had their dog love to eat clumps of grass? When we cut we do us a lawn sweeper but Brandy finds clumps and chews/eats them. Is this just a puppy thing or do labs or coon hounds (she's a mix of the 2) like to eat grass? Hubby is concerned, I'm not.

Good Tuesday all!

I will have to use a trellis for my cucumbers next year. Currently, they are going everywhere and are mixed in with the pumpkin vines.

I hope everyone had a terrific weekend and continues to have a great week!

My hubby made a hail guard to deflect the hail from the tomato plants. We'll see if it works. My tomato plants aren't growing as well as I would like to see. Our growing season isn't that long ... the experiment continues.

The cucumbers on the other hand are growing rapidly and are looking for their trellis. We need to get that in place so they can climb.

I hope everyone has a great week.

Hope everyone had a nice weekend and Fathers' day.

thanks peaches, I forgot that. Hope your plants will be ok. We've had crazy weather. Going to be high 80 and 90 this week, rain daily and high humidity. I don't do well in the humidity.

Off to get ready for work.

Remember Joanie, as you lose weight your body shifts and adjusts. Celebrate being back in a pair of pants and don't sweat the measurements.

I've been lurking ... always checking in on the posts, but I don't always have something to say.

I had my plants outside, but we've had bouts of storms with hail. During one storm we brought all the plants in and I've been afraid to take them back out because of the continuing threat of hail. I guess I'll get them out today and watch the weather this afternoon.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Kurlie==each person is different and you will know which route is the right one for you. Good luck!

Thursday but wishing it were Friday. I have so many things I need to get done but there aren't enough hours in the day! Where to start??? When you work it makes it difficult to fit it all in and still rest. I was so tired yesterday I went right past my driveway on the way home! lol

We had thunderstorms last night. There was a tornado watch but glad nothing came of that! It will rain every day but the weekend which makes mowing difficult. Ah PA weather. Plus it will be in the 80's each day. Our weather patterns have surely changed.

I hope everyone has a great day love light & peace Joanie

Thanks Joanie. Angela and I are looking forward to our new volunteer gig. I felt so connected to those big beautiful animals and the "clients" seem so happy while working towards their goal as they interact with them. Such a wonderful place.

If I don't have hyperplasia then I will most likely go the pill route and just work harder to maintain my weight. I know a few people who have had ablasion and said it wasn't bad but I can't get past it...it is a mind thing. If it comes back positive then I may consider a different route. I had a biopsy last year and it was negative so I did the pill but it was estrogen and progesterone. This time I was given the option of progesterone only. Lots to consider. My doctor gave the option of hysterectomy but kind of downplayed it as not wanting me to go that route. She was pushing the IUD then ablasion then pill in that order. I figure, my body my decision so we shall see what I end up going with. I may have to meditate on this for a while to see what feels right to me.

Congrats Kurlie and daughter! Hope you feel better. I too had hyperplasia years ago at about the same age.I found myself counting the days I didn't bleed as it was easier to track lol After all those annoying tests my best course was the hysterectomy as it could have turned cancerous had I not had it.I had the ablasion first, it didn't work. You don't feel it. Once removed, I felt so much better, like a new person but it did take a while to get over the anemia. I have ovaries so I didn't have to go on hormones. Good luck with it!!

Well, found out the flies were CLUSTER FLIES. Never heard of them but I googled my problem and whoop they popped up. They are now dead and I have to vac the basement. Just glad it's over and they aren't like house flies.

Wednesday, hump day, midweek, make it a good one friends!!!! We're half way to the weekend!

Greetings all! I've been out of the loop for a while....busy with many things. I passed my training with the equine assisted therapy program and I am now a weekly volunteer with their program. Yay. I get to be around horses and help those with disabilities become stronger and raise their self esteem. My daughter also passed and will volunteer for their summer program.

Have been back and forth to doctors recently. Having many tests done...blood work, ultrasounds, a biopsy and such since I seem to be having too many cycles each month. sometimes one, occasionally two and this past month I was the lucky recipient of three. Gosh I love being a woman! First thought it was perimenopause (I am 45) but hormone levels came back fine. could be hyperplasia. We shall see. Waiting for biopsy results this week. Not looking forward to my options - the pill which makes me gain weight and decreases libido - yay, ablasion where they burn the lining of your uterus so it does not get as thick and therefore less cycles - ummmmmm...I think I 'll pass on burning the whooha area, hysterectomy --not yet or an IUD. Not fond of having a foreign body up there for months on end. Did I mention I love being a woman?!


Hope everyone is having a great day! The sun is out and I am alive and well enough to feel it on my face so I'm good with everything else that is going on in my world.

Hi all. Glad electrical supsided Ang.

Jetta you are one busy retiree!!! :)

Claire I got the feeling the animals were encouraging you to buy the property.

My electrical issues have subsided as well. Now, I am facing lots of flies. We didn't have those in the house last year.

Gotta get ready for work now.

Air conditioning one day, cold the next, perfect day the next. Never know. I kept the heater in my office when the maintenance guy installed my window air. He laughed, but I have had to use it. Lots of rain - would love to send some to those who really need it. All our plants are coming up late, because we had snow and frost so late this year. No cherries or plums on our trees - not even a bloom. But our grape vine is starting to come to life.

Ticks are really bad. Found two in the house (we or the dogs brought them in) and one was crawling on my husband's hand when he was driving our friend's car. It's been years since I have seen a tick and now I am giving us and the dogs a complete rubdown every day checking for ticks.

My electrical freakiness seems to have subsided, but the drawers in my office open at will. They always have now and again, and now it's all the time. My boss said he walked by my office before I came in this morning and saw everything open and thought someone had rifled through them. It is just in my office - no one else.

hello all, yep staying busy for sure. Gazing with Braco today though so that helps. Packing for my trip and then need to get ready for camping the day I get back. bad planning lol. the tile is at Lowes and have to pick it up. The tile might be put in when I am gone to Miami, I have to try and get the paining done the next 2 days before I leave on an all nighter. Hope I am awake at the evening opening.

Also going to start a year long program with Donna Eden. well with one who teaches her work but will get to meet her in September when she comes to San Diego.

Got to run and pick up son in a few so gotta run.

You all have a good week. Love, Jetta
