Thank you all for the prayers for Jean. They are picking up her husband today. Hr was diagnosed 10 years ago with dementia. They are taking him to s mental health hospital for tests. Jean is going to get to go to her house and get some of her things. She is staying where she is until they know what the authorities will do with him. I am going to visit Jean today.

It has been so busy there last few days.
Thank you again for prayers.
Blessings to all.

Lord, I pray for Jean that you will give her strength and that her husband will not bother her in any way, shape or form! You, Lord can make this happen! I ask this in Jesus' Name! Also help Sue to be the kind of friend she needs. Be with Terrry and Ann as they go thru this difficult time of transition and bless Vicky as she ministers to those at work. YOU are so great and so good. blessings to all of you today and always. Rose

Sounds like a good way to help those in need.

We don't need to work harder we need to work smarter. I have been pushing myself this last week. I am too tired at night and ....then I feel hungry! I need to think smarter and not do so much to be so tired! I also need to drink more water. Think it through and see if there is just something you can do to get through this week. Blessings to you,

Today my friend needed a few things. She has an abusive husband and she is getting demo treatment for cancer of the pancreas. Friday he shook her hard and told her to get out. She left and is safe now. We need to thank God she was not hurt. She looked so much better today and even smiled while we were talking. Say a prayer for my friend Jean. Thank s

We play a nursing home tomorrow so I need to play my songs a few times.

Our church is having a yard sale to raise money to send to a pastor in the flood ravaged area. I think I may have a lot to donate. We're having a dinner to raise more money. Just want to be a blessing...

I think my weight is stuck again. I really need to work harder at this...

Great job. The old computer I had was a space taker too.

Today church was very uplifting. Our minister is young with two young boys. He speaks from the scripture and relates it to what we need to do today. It always starts my week right.

Today Dave is hurrying to mow the front yard. We have had rain on and off all the time. The grass is really high.

I am working on another bundle of things for my friends churches "New To You " store. They need items now for fall.

Blessings to you all.

Cleaning day here. I took advantage of the sunshine and opened the curtains and windows in our bedroom. Toe the bed down, vacuumed, wiped down cobwebs, dusted and rearranged the whole room. Finally got the computer desk out of there, (and my dinosaur computer), and then set it up in Holly's old bedroom. I think I've done enough today...

Have a lovely day, all...

Glad your work is going great. I hope Betsy stays with you all the time this year.

My brothers wife wore my wedding dress. Then gave it back. My daughter wore it many years later. That was the last of it. But it was purchased by my parents and I think they were pleased. We didn't have much money so it was expensive for them.


I am throwing out things so we can clean up the place. Too much stuff. Sometimes the tears start but I realize that the item is not useful or meaningful to anyone else. I have given away some dishes, platters, glasses, and some of my mother's English China cups. However today most young people don't want those kind of things. Too delicate, not dishwasher safe, and the have to be cleaned or polished. I was lucky because my niece took all the stemware glass and silver plated bowls and serving pieces.

I used all the things atone time. We had a group of 6 couples and we would take turns doing dinner. Everyone got busy and we stopped.

Friday and this was a good week. Not too busy.
Sue

Another day in. Betsy was back and all is right with my world!

I need to get rid of some more stuff. I can be so sentimental about some things, and not about others. Question...Does everyone still have their wedding dress? Just asking. Mine was home made and simple, nothing I would want to pass down to anyone. I still have Bob's wedding suit in the closet. He can probably still wear it, but he just says, "throw it out." I would have to lose about 50 pounds to get into my dress, but I don't think I'd want to, fit into it, I mean. It was the style of the 70's, not very attractive now, but I liked it at the time...hmmm...

Well, Bob got groceries today and I have to go see if he missed anything, his orders. I don't care if he missed anything, as long as I don't have to go! LOL!

Have a lovely day, all...

Wow! Sticky day today. At least it's not cold yet. We are entering my most favorite time of the year, but I'm not ready for what comes after!

They took my Betsy today for another school, just for the day. Tomorrow she'll be back. We have 3 new people, but we haven't register trained any of them. I'm not sure why, but it sure is inconvenient! Shouldn't complain, I got to work with my boss and she's pretty great. She's retiring after this year, me, I'm going next year. We're both blessed!

Hope you all are doing well...

Apologies for my attitude last post. I had reached my limit, but all is well now!

Ann, I believe I have Petra Praise and Carmen both on cd. Oldies, huh! Wonderful, anointed music never goes out of style. Praying a quick recovery for your Terry.

Sue, sounds like you're enjoying your quiet staycation. Good for you!

Not much going on here. So far, the school year has been wonderful. Trusting the Lord, it will continue to be so...

Here again on Monday and I was feeling tired BUT I know I am blessed. My prayers are for all that face hard times from these hurricanes.

Ann It is good to hear from you. Prayers will continue for the Terry and for you. I have been worried about the two of you. This surgery has given you both a difficult time. It was so good to hear you had Christian friends at that time. What a blessing. May God strengthen you both for the rehabilitation Terry need.

Vicky you are not alone in feeling everyone things you can drop everything for what they want to do or want you to do for them. I have just finished a time where I hit my last bit of strength. This summer has been a lot of work to help needy friends. I was beginning to feel angry and tired. Dave and I are considering this time a staycation at home. Only A couple people know we are here. The phone has only been a call from one of them. I am still working on my feelings and the tiredness.

Today I am on slow. Thanking God for all my blessings and praying for the Holy Spirit to give me strength and guidance for the day.

Prayers for all and strength to face your day.
Sue

Good morning:

I just checked and I have not been on Sparkpeople and this team since mid August. So much has happened. My husband had two operations. They tried to save his ankle but three days later, they had to amputate his left leg below the knee. He had so much damage there two wounds and one where you could see muscle, Charko foot, cellulitis, infection down to the bone. I still have my Terry. He is not his foot or even his leg. Terry is much much more. He is his personality, his spirit, his soul.

In between the two operations, I took Terry in some music, praise and worship and also some audio books. We have a cd player in our home stereo but not a portable one. We still had our cassette player and a lot of Christian music and audio books. So I took that one in. It still works ok, so why not. On the day of the second operation, he had been listening to Carmen and Petra Praise. One of the porters came in and saw the cassette case and said "Carmen! I grew up listening to Carmen!" So the discussion came to Petra Praise (these are probably from the 1980s so you may not know them) This discussion helped to know the porter was Christian and their conversation helped Terry from being nervous. At one point we were in the elevator and "ding" the bell went off and in walked another Christian brother that we knew for a long time he also worked there - he was also a porter - it was so wonderful you could feel the presence of the Lord in that elevator.

That was two weeks ago and I have to give a shout out to my husband for his wonderful attitude. He has begun physio and may be transferred to another hospital in a couple of weeks for more physio and the possibility of having a prosthetic leg down the road. He is building up his spiritual muscle, reading some devotions such as those written by Max Lucado and is starting one by Smith Wigglesworth now. He has a three pound weight using for exercise of his arms too.

Although I read through some of the posts but not all, I did read that Sue, you have now reached the weight that is on your license plate. Congratulations to you. I have still been going to get weighed and measured. I believe I have lost about three pounds. Although I did eat a lot of pieces of pizza yesterday. What was I thinking????

Vicki - Its ok to be grouchy or crabby once in a while. I am glad you are trying to get back your joy.......you are better than those who try to bring you down.

Hello to everyone else and have a wonderful day!

I will try to take part more in this wonderful sparkpeople team.

Be blessed one and all. Ann

Trying not to worry about everybody all over.

Why is it you get blessed at church then sometimes come home and somebody makes you feel like you're about to lose your salvation? Honestly, I feel like someone always figures I'll be there to pick up the slack when they don't want to change THEIR plans. I do have a life. It may be a little more laid back than theirs, but it's just as important. I have plans, too, but they must be disposable plans to them. Sorry, I'm a grump today...on my day off...I sound childish, don't I?

Hang on to your joy, y'all. I'm going looking to get mine back...

Prayers for all. We are having a staycation. We were to be st Hilton Head this week after visiting our Aunt Barbara in Myrtle Beach. We are cleaning stuff out of the basement. I am also doing things on my to do list that have been waiting. Only a couple people know we stayed home. The phone has been quiet and it has been good working time Friday and Saturday. Today we are not hurrying and are doing things not so hard or heavy to lift.


Stay safe and blessings to you this week.

Prayers for those in the west facing fires. Prayers for all facing hurricanes.

We have family in Florida, Texas, Louisiana, and South Carolina. The Texas family is just now cleaning their home. Louisiana family is heading for friends in Missouri. The family in Tampa Florida has gotten as ready as possible. They said the roads are full of cars and they are elderly so they don.t want to get stalled in the mass traffic. As I said Aunt Barbara has a hotel room inland and will be ready to leave Saturday.

West Virginia is a good place to live. We have had a tornado and heavy rain storms but all in all we are pretty safe.

Prayers again.

Oh! My smoke is not good prayers for you.

Vicky glad all is well at work.

We are to go to Aunt Barbara's Friday. She called yesterday and said Myrtle Beach is already in watch to evacuate if hurricane Irma comes up the coast. She has already called the man that comes and puts her porch furniture inside the house. Prayers for people in Florida if it continues toward them.

We will just wait and see what happens next.

Kinda gray and cooler here today. It thundered right before my alarm went off this morning. Work has been going very well. Betsy and I have fallen right back into step. We've got our special helper, Dougie back too. Now if our custodian would get back from medical leave, things would be back to normal. I am trying to learn the kids names and whose classroom they are in. It takes me a while...

Have a lovely afternoon, all...

Today we have storms. The thunder has brought both cats to sit next to me. Cronos seldom sit with me. It is a dark day.

We are to go to a picnic tonight. I am waiting to hear if it is cancelled. It is our akiwanis club.

I hope you are having better weather.

I did sit and have time to read scripture and say prayers for everyone.

Today cool and rain. I seem to have caught a cold or it is allergies.


Prayers for all the people in Huston. I am proud of all the people that have gone to help. West Virginia flooded and our people moved in to help. It is interesting that there was no looting and damage from people out for free grabs of things. Also, It is to note that all nationalities are working together. This is the real people of our country. Prayers have been said, churches open to help, so we can see that God is working in our country.

Those that bus in to demonstrate in anger and cause damage are not the real voice of this country.

Well, I am happy to hear that my cousin and family are safe and got out in time. They moved all their things to the second floor before they evacuated. Their home is in Deerfield Texas just outside of Huston.

Blessings to you all.
Sue

Great to hear from all of you

Yes I finally weigh what it says on my driver's license. That has been a long time in coming.
When i retired i was a lot heavier. I am down about 30 pounds since then. I thank Sparkpeople and this program for the tracking and the many articles as well as the ideas from others. I was in weight watchers for a while but it was not as structured as this program is.

It is good to have support.
Prayers for all

Liz, I love chicken and venison done on the grill, or over a fire...both are great choices!

Daisy, good for you! That increase in energy is such a bonus. It's amazing how great you feel when you're eating right.

Sue, 8 pounds off is wonderful. Bet your doctor was happy with that.

Today is meatballs, cheese stick, and bread stick with sides of spinach salad and baby carrots! See ya later...

That's interesting that water does that to you Sue. Vicky hang in there, we are right here with you. My kids went to school today, my son wasn't happy, crying actually. But then he said he had a great day! Hooray!! I came home and exercised after a stressful day at work, bunch of whiners...Started a healthy eating plan this week. My stomachs been a little off since last week. I think it's a combination of eating bad and a stomach bug that's going around. Tomorrow my dad goes for some more laser in his eye. Poor guy, it's hard seeing him go through this. But i get to spend some lost time with him. I find out so much about his past. I love the stories about him and my mom. Ughh i miss her, she was such a good friend to me not just my mom. My daughter is slowly becoming my friend, we love doing stuff together just us girls. Once a week we trade off and i spend time with my son, and she spends time with her daddy. It's important to have alone time with each child and parent. I'm planning a cookout for Sunday, still not sure what I'm making. Hmmm, something different. Any suggestions? Other than the old hotdogs andhamburgers? God Bless xo

Vicky I understand. My friend lost 22 pounds in the last 5 months. Doctor's visit this morning. Eight pounds off since 6 months ago I am slow at getting weight off. Good report all around though made me feel better.

I have to be so careful because water in other towns can cause my stomach to go crazy. I take my filter with me where ever we go.

Hope to get more done today.

Yes it's difficult seeing other people lose weight and your not. I sympathize with you because I've been on both sides. You'll get there, maybe she can be of some help to you. Does she have any helpful tips? Tomorrow my kids go back to school. My son's nervous, he always has a hard time with change just like his daddy. My daughter seems excited to wear her new things. My stomach has been going through something this week.. maybe a bug, not sure. Hoping I'll wake up tomorrow and it'll be gone. God Bless

Praying for you all today.

Day 1 in...179 to go! All in all, it was a pretty good start to the school year. Tomorrow is taco nachos. Getting the kindergarteners to understand what it is, is a problem sometimes. They just want the chips...

Betsy, my coworker, has lost 39.4 pounds. I am so far behind her now, and it seems that is all she talks about. I'm happy for her, but how about a little sensitivity? Please, Lord, don't let me ever make someone feel this way...yeah, I know, stop whining...

Have a lovely day, all...

Today is outside work. It is cooler and I need to clean the white shutters that are near a tree. They get green mold an the lower part.

Started early and hope to have wash etc. done today. It seems like I am always doing the same things over and over.

My daughter's birthday is tomorrow. She is really busy at her job so we will go to lunch on Wednesday.

Prayers for your family.

My friend was so pleased for us to visit. She is almost blind and but still gets around. She was sso glad to see the fellow we brought with us. She had been caring for him when he was a few months old. We had such a good time. She gets lonely so I have to figure out a time i can go over again.

Got the house straight as Helen comes tomorrow night for the night, She is a full professor and teaches a night class at West Virginia University. It is too late for her to drive home. She moved to her family home when her Dad passed away. Her mother was already gone. It is an hour and 15 minutes to drive home. She has come here I think now for 11 years for a night or two.

Good day today. Blessings to all
Prayers for all too
Sue

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Sounds like a fun vacation. It is great when there are things for the kids to enjoy.

Today I took my computer to my friend and she worked to get my Fitbit to sync. Bless her as she looked and took the Fitbit off my phone and reloaded it. She got me back on and also cleaned up some things for me. I do well but some of this technology is just too much.

One of my friends is 92 today. She has company from Texas visiting and a small family dinner now.. We are stopping over after church tomorrow. It is hard for me to believe so many years have passed. We met in 1975. Time sure goes fast.

Hi Ladies!โ˜บI'm feeling much better about the whole situation, me and my husband discussed it and he agreed it was very strange of her. Anyways we are enjoying our vacation week. Monday we went to Lake Compounce in Connecticut so we didn't see the eclipse. Too bad, i was hoping we would because we were outside all day. We spent most of our time in the water park area because it was very hot and humid and my son was not feeling well. Once we did go to the water park we were fine. Weds we went to skyzone in kingston ma. The kids had fun jumping around in trampolines. Today we might go to Adventure Island in Narragansett. Go karts, bumper boats,mini golf and ice cream๐Ÿ˜‰ Not eating healthy at all this week but i did start running again, which I'm only running in sprints because it's rather difficult and all the weight gain is not easy. But I'm determined, making better choices today on the eating end of things. Hang in there Vicki cooler days are coming! Sue good news, God is Good! My dad has had good results with his drs as well. God Bless ๐Ÿ˜

Prayers and blessings.

We have fans, but when it's just as hot outside, it doesn't make much difference.

I definitely believe the eclipse was a sign. We didn't get much of it here in Pa, just got a little darker for a little while.

Vickythey should get a fan or something to cool down the kitchen are? If there is a window even an air conditioner. That is dangerous to get so hot. Can you talk to the principal and get help. I will pray they do something to help..

Perhaps our country was given a message with the eclipse. It went over tha US from 1 to 3 th hours Christ was on the cross. My minister gave a good statement on this.

Blessings and prayers

My hands are so swollen today that my wedding rings actually fit! I'm carrying a lot of fluid, and the scales are showing it. Time to back off the sodium again. My calves even feel like they are swishing back and forth when I walk! I will feel better tonight. This usually happens to me when it's extremely hot outside, too, so I've had a double whammy. Today is supposed to be much cooler, and I've already got my windows open for some fresh air in this house.

Praying for everyone to have a lovely successful day!

I think I might have gotten a tough of heat exhaustion today at work. Ninety plus degrees outside, at least 10 degrees warmer inside( there's no AC in our kitchen at the school), and about 20 more degrees in the dishroom, where I was most of the day. My face was beet red and sore when I got home, and I have an awful headache. Just laying around in my house dress trying not to be sick...drinking lots of water...

Haven't seen my mom in 2 days so tomorrow I'll be making the trip to Oil City again. Miss her bunches! Hope she is much better!

Vicky school is on full swing here. Welcome back to the new year. I hope you have a good person working with you this year.

Liz stay strong. You know there are people in every church that are not truly Christian. Prayers for you.

Yesterday I sat in the rocker on my porch and watched the eclipse of the sun. I made a pin hole in a cereal box . It showed the eclipse then on the inside bottom of the box.

Prayers for all. Sue

Oh, Liz, I think I would have told that woman to go sit with her husband! My husband had an ex sister in law who propositioned him when I was 7 months pregnant with Holly. He came straight home and told me, but only after I promised I wouldn't confront her about it. He was very disturbed by it. After all, it was his brother's ex wife! I, of course, told him all bets were off, and I got my very pregnant self out of bed and started looking for my car keys! When I simmered down, I thought better of it, but I never spoke to her again.

Today is my baby granddaughter's 15th birthday...oh my, how time flies!

I worked a few hours at the school today, getting ready for the faculty breakfast tomorrow. Talk about being out of shape! I thought I'd been fairly active thru the summer but that must have been a dream...oh my...

Have a wonderful day, all...

Liz that woman was very disrespectful of her own husband. She was way out of line and hurtful to your husband and you. . Bless your husband for his great remark back.


Today a friend is coming to watch the eclipse of the sun. We won't have a total but we hope to see the part that crosses our area. She is going to help me with a computer problem too. My Fitbit just doesn't want to sync. I need to get lunch ready for when she gets here.

Blessings and prayers far all.

So glad to hear your mom is out of the hospital! That's great news, you'll have some more work to so but think of it as spending quality time with your mom vicky. I got so much out of those times i visited with my mom when she was in the hospital and nursing home. My kids were small and i visited everyday and sometimes night. I think i drove my husband crazy but he was my rock and still is as i spend some time with Dad. I got jealous today. A woman that we go to church with , she's married, has a child who's in college is very fond of my husband. The ladies love him, older ladies mostly. We were at a church cookout and my husband was alongside of me eating and she says Tony why aren't you sitting with me. My husband says because I'm sitting with my wife, then she says do you see where my husband is across the way. I was bothered by this because it was said in front of our church family. We all play around like brothers and sisters but she doesn't hug me like she does him and she's taking a real liking to him and my children. Maybe it's me but i felt disrespected and hurt. What do you guys think? Am i wrong? Anyways
We are on vacation next week and tomorrow we are going to lake compounce in ct, it'll be a good time. The kid's want to go to skyzone sometime next week as well which is a large trampoline. May finish up some projects too. Kids start school aug 29th the Tues. Haven't exercised in a few days, gotta get back to it. Maybe the walking tomorrow will help and make better choices. Take care and God Bless.

Yes you need to check on Dad's food. We do that when we check on Dave's Aunt. We did that for his mom and dad too . They don't realize that there is something missing that they really should have. Bless you Vicky because this is the caretaker part of our life. We are sandwiched in between Children, grandchildren and older parents.

Yesterday I really had a wonderful time with my daughter and her friend. We visited the shop another friend had opened. It is really interesting. It has all kinds of small gifts to decorate your home. There is all kinds of scents in tins, candles, and oil. We had lunch and then stopped at the grocery store before she took me home.


We usher today so I am working early on Sparkpeople.
Blessings to all today

Waiting on Bob to get up so we can head out to the nursing home again. I think I will stop by the house and see if any redding up needs done, and peek in the fridge to make sure Dad has something in there. If you ask him, he'll say he's got plenty of food, but he could be completely out of bread and milk!

Today my daughter has invited me to go to a new shop her friend is opening. It has decorations, kitchens things. Herbs, etc. I will know more later today.

Storms and heavy rain yesterday, last night and more today. I am so glad I finished the weeding. There will be more now. Also I had the porch looking so nice and the wind blew little leaves everywhere.

We drove around looking at smaller homes yesterday afternoon. The were in Fairmont wv which is a ways farther down I 79. I wish there was something closer.

Prayers for all.

Vicky - Prayers for your Mom.

Today with no company I am going to do things I want to do that i have put off because of all the extras. I'll let you know how that goes.

I ate too much yesterday evening because I have so much cooked etc.
Today is a new plan. The scale was up 1;5 which seems to be the amount I keep gaining and loosing over and over and over.

Prayers for all and have a happy day

Well, Mom's all settled in at the nursing home for a few weeks. She was sitting in a wheel chair when I got there this morning. Nor at all happy about it either. Still in terrible pain, but dealing with it. Not eating a whole lot and very unhappy that her weight is up anyway...poor mum...

Speaking of...my weight is up, too, and I was doing so well before this...hmmmm...

We all hit some key that deletes all the work.

Vicky - Sorry to hear you have an extra day of work. Prayers for your Mom and that they work with her to help her.

Liz - Yes we are always busy but this summer there have been so many friends and family that needed help that there was no breath. I am getting tired and the to do list is way out of control.

We played music today at a nursing home and one of our players recognized one of the new clients there. They had graduated from HS together. He is 67. He has a lot of problems. We can all be grateful to be moving around and doing things.

My brother and wife come Wednesday. I am working to get the place ready.

Start the week with a good plan.
Prayers are still going up for all of you

Liz, I hate it when that happens! I do it quite frequently on here and I don't know why!

Sue, you guys never slow down, do you?

Well, tomorrow(please, God?) they are supposed to move Mom to a nursing home for therapy and rehab. She's doing fairly well.

I, myself am exhausted and need to learn how to sleep again. My head cook called me at the hospital to add another day to my schedule next week...yea...one less day of summer.


Forgive me, it's a whiny day...I hope you all are having a better one...

Well gone and back. The organ is in the car to play Monday and Tuesday. I have some things started for dinner.

Church today we got a prayer for this time. It was written to help face the way things are going in our country. Prayer for those in charge to consider carefully using the Bombay that diet Roy everything. Prayer for the people killed and hurt in Virginia. These are sad and frightening times.

My prayers for all of you and your families. We need to keep our faith strong.
Blessings to you this week.
