Judy - Let me know if you think Meaganne and I could help out with improving Marley's "manners" on leash.

Jo - is that deck going to be gold plated and jewel encrusted??? For that kind of money I would sure expect something pretty darn spectacular! These contractors just seem to hold us all as hostages, don't they whether it's electrical, plumbing, or carpentry work.

Mary - Glad you are ok!!!


Since 3 of the roofers were pretty convinced we should see if our house insurance would cover at least some of the repair costs, I called them on Friday. They sent an adjuster as well as a guy from Belfour (the big restoration firm ) out here on Monday.

It seems there is a chance that the insurance may help out, but we haven't heard anything officially yet. The roofer that presented his estimate on Monday, gave us prices on 3 different types of materials , including metal. His estimates started in the almost $8,000 range up to nearly $14,00 - all of which do NOT include any of the sheathing or trusses that may need to be repaired or replaced...

I gave the adjuster the names of all 4 companies that had been out, and added that Murray Shaw is the one that do NOT want anything to do with. Now it's just a waiting game - until we hear back from the insurance people, we pretty much stuck with no clear cut answers.


Mike made it through to another year, yesterday. Now he is really, really OLD! We had our friend from Belmont in for dinner last night to celebrate. Friday we're heading up to have a BBQ with the family , at Rob and Leigh's.

They're providing Keg steaks, and we're making a bunch of salads. Meaganne's doing the cake as usual, this will be a Black Forest cake - Mike's favourite. They had planned to do this for our anniversary, but that was the weekend that Mike had to do the prep for his colonoscopy.

oh Judy no! I agree with Mary time to teach Marley some doggie manners..
it was one cool day today ..

Mary glad you got home safe.

Kathy it was nasty this way too --- we had to batten down the hatchet --- and kids all slept with mommy and daddy the noise and lightning and wind so scared them.
but it did not last too long .. and then started up in the morning again but not as bad.
glad I was inside and did not have to go out.

everyone have a good evening .

Where I live we did not get the winds, just rain.
Up on the hyw 21--- it was nasty. I drove home in very bad wind and rain.
I was happy to be home.

Judy, I think you need to be teaching Marley a few things. You are going to get hurt.

Morning Ladies,

Kathy we had a little bit out here but nothing like you were in. Poor Phoenix! Hope she is better today. Hope the quotes are all decent for you. I agree if someone is trashing someone, no need to go with that guy. DH said construction has really picked up again.

Took Marley out for a walk yesterday and wouldn't you know it I tripped over her and fell emoticon skinned the elbow, and stiff today. I will stick to the other leach as it is just that little bit longer, but not as pertty emoticon emoticon

Mary some bad weather came past you guy's or did it miss you?

Jo looks like an inside day with the kids today.

Have a great day ladies

What a " light show " out there tonight, all that lightening and thunder too. Phoenix is definitely not enjoying all the noise.

The rain was coming down so hard when I took Mike to work about 10;35 that I could barely see to drive. Glad to be back home and indoors again!

Hope you are feeling better today Jo!

This has been another mostly do nothing day. I figure I will enjoy it while I can - this week is going to be busy, stressful to the max, and probably a nightmare too with all the quotes coming in on the roof.

Phoenix is still not all way back to HIS normal self, from the surgery. We had him rechecked on Friday and the vet was mostly pleased with him, but a little concerned that his back end was still so wobbly.

He still isn't drinking much, so Meaganne's been giving him a couple bowls of water every day with just enough chicken broth in them to make him want to drink it. I'm guessing that we may have to take him in to the clinic again, after all... it IS Phoenix! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I could see my breath this morning Mary so I understand needing a fire.

All is going OK at the moment. Marley ended up pulling me down in the vet office yesterday. She is so strong and caught me off guard. GRR made me feel old. LOL

Getting the hot flashes some what controlled to a few a day. And my foot seems to be on the mend. I've been wearing the Berkinstocks daily.

Must run and getting ready for the job.

Enjoy this beautiful day every one!

All the roofers have now been out, will start presenting their quotes on Monday afternoon.
the general consensus is that there are definitely some structural issues - how much we won't know for sure until everything is opened up.

The big worry as far is I am concerned is will the final projected cost be so high that we can't get financing approved - not so much that we wouldn't be able to afford it, but that we might not be able to get the loan itself....

Phoenix was very unsteady on his rear end when we picked him up this afternoon, but is steadily getting better - he has some trouble with coming out of anesthesia, so we expected this - still not easy to watch him stumbling around though.

He ended up just losing one tooth which is great - we thought it might be 3 of them! The tooth itself was healthy, but had a large abcess around one of the roots on it. He's going to spend the night in Meaganne's room in his big mesh crate just to be safe.

you are right to discount them --they say if I guy you are getting a quote from bad mouthes other's in his business do not do business with him... plus double whamy---
he couldn't be bothered giving a written quote --wouldn't of wasted my time with him.

well found out at noon the company will be her before 8 pm they told me Friday ---now it is Thursday so got some cleaning to do
since they will be staying in my room ...

I think the thunder started around midnight here, but with a lot more lightening than booms. The really big, shake all the windows loose kind of thunder didn't really start until closer to 1 am.
By then all 3 beasties were in their little "Happy Place" - the 2 old ones had pain meds, and Brinx had Benadryl - so they didn't really notice all the noise. emoticon emoticon

The 3rd roofer was here today - Murray Shaw - and I ruled them out !000% because of the guy's attitude. He asked if I wanted him to actually explain his initial numbers right then and I said yes, of course.

I did mention that we are also getting other quotes and he told me he couldn't be bother spending the time it would take to do up a written estimate if we weren't going to go with his company!!! He also bad mouthed the rest of the roofing companies in the area.

What a great day - breezy and cool enough to have all the windows open, and most of the fans off!

oh my word --- glad you didn't get that storm Mary.

It was so loud and after the second crash of thunder/lightning the fire trucks were out in force..
-- then it was so cold I covered up...just crazy weather.

Judy I would believe that ---- nasty loud noise ..

My appointment went very well..
just a change up of meds --- and one I do not have to take anymore.

Mary, Judy and Sandi - Have a nice day!

Jo - I hope all goes well at the cardiac clinic tomorrow!!

My annual physical appointment is all over and done with - thank goodness!!! Diabetes is still not under control, so he's now talking about upping the ante and adding one needle a day if things are not better the next time I go in (late October). Other than apparently my B -12 is too low, everything else was okay for now.

It's bath day here again - Phoenix is done, Arwen is up on the grooming table being blow dried and groomed... just poor little Brinx waiting for his turn now. Anticipation is always so much fun, isn't it! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Phoenix was pronounced healthy enough to have more dental surgery on Thursday, to get rid of a really rotten (smelly) tooth - hopefully it will just be the one, he has 2 others that are somewhat suspect too , and let's not forget he just had 3 teeth extracted plus teeth cleaned near the end of March.....

I'm off to the dr. tomorrow afternoon - just what I want to be doing - NOT!!!

Mary - That is kind of the root of the problem, I think.

We DID have a friend of my brother do the roof about 10 years ago - it's leaked off and on ever since. Now there appears to be some structural damage, so I feel we have no choice but to go with a reputable roofing company - someone who knows what they are doing, and will guarantee the work.

Meaganne and I finally got out in the garden this afternoon to get some much needed weeding, planting, and dead heading.

Front windows - 1st estimate - $2300, 2nd estimate still coming, as well as a couple of other companies who haven't been here yet...

Roof - 1st estimate - could be as much as $10,000+ by the time all repairs are done......
2nd company was here today, but didn't go up on the roof because of the rain - he will be back first of the week, and is also quoting on the front window, eavestroughs and repairs to the ceiling in the carport

3 more roofing companies coming out Wed. after lunch, Thursday before lunch, and Thursday after lunch

The first guy believes there may be 2 trusses that are going to have to be replaced due to rot..... The "picture " just keeps getting better and better......

Gotta love home improvements! It is not cheap owning your own home anymore. We will have to redo the Kitchen and down stairs bathroom before we try to sell one day. Not looking forward to it.

Well took this darn dog out around the pond yesterday and she pulled me the whole way. My butt hurts today so I guess she gave me a good work out.

emoticon Judy - Bot, those 2 weeks have really gone quickly. When Rob was in cadets, I loved the 6 weeks long summer camps! Things were so nice and peaceful around the house while he was away.

Mary - Did you ever get that walk on the beach?

Jo - How are you feeling now - better I hope!!!

I shopped til I dropped the other day too, only mine was courtesy of my debit card, not my credit card.

I finally got out to Heemans again this week. They had ll kinds of deals on, but Meaganne just had a look at their website and saw that a bunch of the plants I bought a few days ago are now on sale - buy one, get one free. It's okay though, because the day we were there the hanging baskets were all on for 25% off, so I got 5 really nice ones for less than $40 !

I've got 3 roofers coming out next week to give us some estimates, then we have to see if we can finance it, plus replacing the ceiling in the living room and down the hallway too. We 've been also getting quotes for the front windows witch need replacing almost as much as the roof does.

A nice little Lottery win would come in really handy, that's for sure!!!

Morning Ladies, Nice and chilly this morning, but I do love it.

Kathy has Mikes pain settled down any yet? So glad the procedures has been done and things look good. How's the new emoticon

Jo hope you are feeling better. emoticon

Mary are you snuggled up under blankets this morning? Did you get out for a walk on the beach yet? emoticon

Sandi you continue to be one active lady. Please send some of that energy my way. emoticon

I emoticon myself to get this meno stuff regulated. Some days good, some really bad. It is so much easier when no one is around and I can do, dress or not dress, eat, sleep what ever without others. emoticon

Well the 2 kids have been gone 2 wks now. Luc is home this Friday. Oh how it has flown by.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon are driving me crazy so I'm off for a jog/walk with one.

Have a great day everyone.

They almost cancelled the scope because they had so much difficulty getting the IV in - Mike had not had enough fluids (which I told him he need to be drinking way more...)

Anyway, the IV was finally done - took 3 different nurses to get it into a vein!

The Dr. came out to speak with us before we left, and said that they were able to get all the way into his small bowel (intestine). They didn't find anything horrible, which is great, but neither did they find anything that would give us a clue as to what's been causing all the pain.

In a sense we're no further ahead, but it is such a relief to know that was no sign of cancer either!!!

Meaganne and I went back to Penningtons again this afternoon, after we got Mike home. We each got 2 new bras - they had a buy one - get one sale on.

What a difference a decent fitting bra makes!!! The "girls" actually more or less sit where they used to, years ago before I was foolish and had kids! emoticon emoticon

Awww Jo - I hope you feel better quickly!!! Did you catch this from the kidlets? emoticon emoticon

It took 10 years of University and 3 degrees to get there, but yup Shawn has done well for himself! For a kid who never wanted to leave the safety of his own yard, he sure gets around these days between work and pleasure!

Mary - Love the picture of you and the birdhouses! You look very patriotic!

This has been a nice quiet day for me, relaxing out on the deck, doing crosswords and playing a little computer. This is going to be a busy, stressful week - already have stuff booked every day except Friday.

Jo - Shawn has been dating her for a couple of years I think , so not such a new thing. This is strictly a pleasure trip - no work this time.

They're in France (Paris) until the 16th, then taking the train to Interlaken Switzerland until the 19th, then again taking the train to Zurich for a bit, before flying back on the 21st.

Of course, though the girlfriend gets to have him exclusively for this 10 days or so, we probably will only see Shawn for the usual couple of days at Christmas.....

Evening ladies - hope your day was a great one!!

After our 'brunch' out with Emily, I came and basically did nothing all afternoon but sleep - what a waste of a nice afternoon.

Mike starts taking the prep for Monday's colonoscopy tomorrow afternoon, but is only allowed clear fluids after midnight tonight.

He's already complaining about not being able to eat anything solid. He wanted to have a big feed of steak and potato pancakes for supper tonight, but I vetoed that one! I think he'd be an idiot to put that much grease and heavy food into his system the night before taking the stuff to clean his innards out....

Shawn left for France this afternoon. If the brat had sent us his travel info earlier than 10pm last night, we could have planned to go to Toronto today to see him - he had a 4 plus hour layover at Pearson (could have finally met his girlfriend too - maybe that's why he didn't send the travel details earlier!)

We have a guy coming over Tuesday afternoon to give us an estimate on replacing the front windows. I imagine this will at least a couple of thousand dollars, but like the roof, something we can't put off much longer.

Morning

I think I will force myself to get out there and have a walk on the beach. I have never even went to check it out as far as walking goes. I have walked down and felt it, too cold for me.

Hey Jo, tell him we are just happy for every one else, trying to make people feel good.

To tell you the truth, for me the week end here at the camp is more stressful on the week end.
More people and long days and nights of the drinking men.

I agree with you gals - I feel like I'm busier than I ever was when I had to drive Mike to / from work, and Meaganne to / U of Guelph. We've been going non - stop, or so it feels for almost this whole week!

Next week doesn't look much better either.

Monday is Mike's colonoscopy at Vic Hospital this time. I'll be glad when it is over, he's been panicking about it ever since he was at the ER a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully we will get some answers as to what has been casing him all the discomfort - and hopefully it will not be anything serious!!!!!

Jennifer (and Emily) is taking us out for lunch tomorrow for our anniversary. The kids had originally planned to have a family BBQ up at Rob's on Sunday, but Mike will be doing the prep for his scope on Sunday so won't be allowed to eat anything. Seemed kind of wrong for the rest of us to be enjoying food when he's only allowed clear fluids. LOL

Jo - What open house?

Meaganne and I went to Penningtons this afternoon and both found some new clothes. I got 3 new tops and in a smaller size than I thought I could fit into!

That was a really nice surprise! Now I just need to get a better fitting / more support bra and the tops will look even better! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Judy - Sounds like you and Marley will have a great time together! The 2nd new book I just finished was another of Iris Johansen's called"Live To See Tomorrow".. The other new one was the latest in the " Otlander " series by Diana Gabaldon They are 2 of my favourite authors - haven't read anything of theirs that I did not love!

Right now I've just started one that a friend gave me for Christmas (that I had forgotten I had) - so it's interesting, but not typically one I would choose for myself.

The latest Nora Roberts one (out a couple of months ago) is called "The Collector " - loved it, and plan to reread it next.

Mary - You never said what kind of books you enjoy?

Jo - Did you get your groceries today? The rain was pretty bad at times, that's for sure!!

We had to take Phoenix over to the vet to do his weekly weight check. He's exactly the same as last week, so not great , but at least he didn't lose anything!

We then went over to Freshco, and on the way home I could barely see to drive because the rain was coming down so hard. I was sure glad to get home in one piece!!!

Thanks Jo, I liked painting them. I have 3 feeders here. I may feed them in winter, not sure, just because of the wild life around here.

Judy, good luck to you, Marley will help you stay at it.

Judy wish I knew how the beaches are, I have never went for a walk on them yet. Sad!!! emoticon

Judy making the basement a workout area is good if you get to take your tv ect down there too.

Mary did I tell you love those little bird houses --- tell the guy to make you a feeder.but just feed them in the winter..

everyone have a good day
Kathy hope you do not have to go out today..more rain predicted.

Morning............. I see all is doing well emoticon

I was inside the mall with all the rain and so wish I could have been watching it with a coffee in hand. I find it so relaxing. Am off today so maybe I will get my wish to have a bit of thunder emoticon then a nap.

Kathy what book did you just finish that you liked so well? Would I enjoy it?

Mary what is your beach like for walking on?

Jo sounds like you are back to normal in your routine now.

Well Ladies with Torie off to Fitness leader camp I am trying to get my running going again so that when she get home she will keep up her routine. emoticon They have to run to get their breakfast every morning. If she can do it so can Marley and Me. I have now put her in a harness and have a different leash .......one I hold in my hand attacked to her collar and the other around my waist on the harness. Worked better this morning. Our goal is to do a 3k run 3x a week. emoticon well mine is Marley is game for anything.

Enjoy the day ladies emoticon

Morning

I have not had any time to read. I hope to get that boring book done tonight. Then I have 5 more to choose from.

I hope the new food processes works better Kathy

I don't know what I will do if my old old one goes on me. That is how I do all Pandas food.

You're lucky Mary. There times when the rain came down so hard and heavily, never mind the high winds too, that I thought my whole house was going to float down the street. It sounded like giants were jumping up and down on the roof! emoticon emoticon emoticon

This afternoon (suppertime) when Meaganne and I headed out to return the food processor it was hot out, but still nice. When we came out of the 2nd store the humidity had kicked in again and we could hardly breathe.

We did find a new machine, for almost exactly the same price, but this one looks much like my old one, so hopefully will work as well!!!!

I'm halfway through the 2nd of the new books - will probably finish it either this evening, or by tomorrow night I think. I feel like I'm flying through it.

What a lovely day today, especially when it was breezy! Perfect summer weather!

I finished my book last night. I think this might be one of her best so far in the series! Now I just have to sit and wait, wait, wait for the next one to be written - hopefully she will do another one!

I started on the 2nd of the new books I got last Friday this afternoon. It won't take long to read, because even though I'm trying to savour it, I'm just flying right along... This author has a couple others that will be out soon, so at least I won't have to wait too long for them.

Rob's had poor Angelina to the dentist 3 times since she arrived, but apparently all the cavities have been filled now. The dentist she had in Quebec felt they should just be left until they got bigger, but these are her adult teeth now - why on earth would you leave her with a mouth full of cavities!!! Doesn't make any sense to me.

This si a sort of busy week here for us, how about the rest of you ladies?

Mary - what are you reading that is so boring? What kind of books do you like? Suspense / mystery / romance / historical fiction / fantasy / scary ?????

Maybe I could suggest something that might appeal to you more?

We went out looking for a new food processor this afternoon - mine is broken. We finally chose one at WalMart for a whole $90 including the tax, and it will definitely be going back. What a useless piece of junk!!!! I want something that works a whole lot better than this one did, if I have to spend that kind of money!!!! I was really disappointed with this new processor.

I'm past the half way mark now in the new book - it's going by way too fast even though I'm trying to read slowly and savour each and every page.

I am into a book that is so boring. I still can't stop reading it. I have to finish it after I start it

Not doing much, trying to get back to thinking good about exercise and food.
