Hello Ladies!

I hope all is going well for everyone, barring computer and connection issues. Carol, I am sorry Linda is having Lupus and arthritis flare ups. I don't know much about Lupus but my sister has fibromyalgia and mom has arthritis that is pretty bad. I hope it goes back into remission soon.

I have just bought a ticket to Dallas. My sister is picking me up at the airport and taking me to a car dealership. I have been wanting a little roadster for several years and I found one. I hope it is in as good of shape as it appears on the web!

Have a great afternoon and evening!

Hello friends,

Carol, thanks for sharing about Linda, I’m sorry she’s suffering again. She had a good run there for a while and I pray she goes back into remission soon.

I’m 2 nights behind on the convention. Trying to catch up one speech at a time with YouTube. Madeline Albright’s speech was awesome and so pro-woman. I’m glad the “woman card” is being pushed to the front. I don’t care what anyone says, a U.S. woman president is way overdue.

Thanks for the back pain video Cheryl, I’ve sent it Joe too!

Now that it’s the home stretch I’ve been fairly vigilant about the presurgery exercises. Nothing like pressure to get me on track. Had a good food day yesterday, I think the chocolatey Ensure drink once a day has cut my cravings.

Someone has compromised my debit card to the tune of $365 as of last night. Happened over 3 days. Thank goodness I checked my account and had the card cancelled before any more damage was done. Getting ready to go to the bank to see what can be done.

K, ladies, let's stay strong together emoticon

Greetings!

I get so frustrated with this dang computer! I plan on purchasing a new one when I finally get to SD! I just get tired of waiting for a connection and give up!

I have been watching the DNC all week and am ready to pound the pavement for Hillary! I actually gasped out loud when she came out on the stage last night! We have got to win this election, Ladies!

I have been walking everyday and trying to eat better. I was really shocked when I got on the scale today since I have never, ever seen that number before in my life! I thought for sure with my daily walks and watching my food intake the numbers would go down? What I wasn't paying attention to has been all of the snacking I have been doing! I am changing this one day at a time and hope to get back to the healthier me!

Will keep you posted!

Hello to everyone ...keep up the good work!

Sad to hear Linda's lupus and arthritis have come back. Hugs to you both.

I'm feeling good today. Been walking, watching portion control and eating good food and drinking lots and lots (and lots) of water. It only takes a couple of days of doing it right and I feel so much better. But, I'm determined more than ever to lose weight and feel good in my clothes.

One day at a time.

P.S. I highly recommend reading THE JOY FIT CLUB...omgoodness some of the successful weight loss stories are so very incredible. Women and men who - some - have lost more than double their weight (okay 1 or 2 people) and the others having lost half their weight. It's an easy read and includes recipes. It also focuses on the conclusion that (most of us know) you have to fix your mind and emotional wellbeing before the weight loss happens.

Stories are heartbreaking recounting trauma from schoolmates, society and pressure from families, but all with a heartwarming ending.

One woman (over 400 pounds) became a speed walker competitor. emoticon

THE JOY FIT CLUB is a definite read for inspiration and motivation. emoticon

Good morning dear friends;

Carol you one of the most loving and caring women I have ever know and you and Linda are so very blessed to have each other. Be thankful and show your gratitude and you will continue to be in His grace.

I will not be here this evening, after a stop to visit with Brian, then home to be with Dusky for a while I will go upstairs to celebrate Rodney's birthday. He's 51 today !!

Looks like chance of rain is very possible here, temps are very muggy and temps still in the mid to high 90s. Possible break coming for the weekend ????

Have a THANKFUL day ladies and do your best to make the healthiest choices in all you do.

Good morning ladies. ...

Linda is up early with me getting ready to head to Dallas for the memorial service. I have lots to do to prepare for our company tomorrow.

Well i havent shared this but Linda is out of remission. Her lupus and arthritis are rearing its ugly head. She has to take methotrexate by injection once a week and I have to give her the shot. No big deal as I have given shots before but i hadn't given one for probably 30 years. Everything went well and I felt good that i hadn't forgotten how to do that.

Have a great day gotta go!

Hello PLOF.

It is a tiring week so far. Busy during the day and have been having some issues with my game in the evenings. The video games are my "unwind" mechanism and the one I am playing now is having connection issues. These issues are not from my end (my connection has been checked by the provider).

Gold, where in Texas do you come during the winter? I am currently in Lubbock and before coming here I lived in the Dallas area for over 19 years.

Our major heat broke this week and we are in the 90's. It has been nice in the evenings with some thundershowers that cool us off quickly.

Stay cool, have fun, be safe!

Keeping good thoughts your surgery goes well and you have a quick recovery, Cat.

I enjoyed President Clinton's speech last night. emoticon

We're having our summer weather and I'm really enjoying it. Was going to walk part way home last night, but it was our neighbor's birthday so I went back to Pike Place Market (was there at lunch buying flowers for my co-worker's b-day) and bought more flowers for neighbor. Passed on cake and ice cream. emoticon

Today is Wednesday and unless I do something in the very early morning, I'm restricted as to when I can get my exercise in. I'll have to try throughout the day to do stairs, stretching or something.

Gold, you are funny! I'm easily distracted too.

P.S. Cat, I haven't watched this video but it's on back pain.

Good morning. I think I must move my computer. It is in front of a window and the bird feeder is right outside. I have never learned to FOCUS. A couple of days ago I went out for a short walk (very Short) to find Pokemon. I sat down on a bench to catch my breath and a big hawk landed on a street light fixture right in front of me. All thought of Pokemon vanished as the Hawk and I sat and stared at each other.

I hope everyone has a great day. Nightsinge you write extremely well. Wish I could.

Good morning friends;

I'm sorry but my PC is scanning ... AGAIN, and I don't have time to wait for my words to post, so will try to come back this evening.

Have a WONDERFUL HEALTHY day. TTFN

Good morning. .....

I've been watching the DNC hit and miss. I did see Michelle 's speech and parts of Bills. They were both good I feel and i'll probably watch the President speak tonight I believe.

Linda is leaving for Dallas early tomorrow for the memorial service. Its just me and the furbabies Thursday but we have a lot to do to get ready for our company. I'm glad I took Friday and the weekend off. I havent seen Uncle Joe and Aunt Virginia for a couple years and it will be nice.

Have a great day...stay cool

Greetings!

DG, is sure IS amazing what 10% change can make. That is so wonderful that you were able to reverse all those conditions.

Gold, don't stress over your lawn until it's safe to go out. Cheryl, sounds like you are happy to be able to settle back into a more healthy routine.

Whew, this week has been killer. Yesterday saw surgeon, everything is full steam ahead. Aggravating thing is the right knee if feeling pretty OK and the other one is the one giving me grief. Too bad they can't get them both taken care of at once. Today between trying to work at home Joe and I had both optometry and chiropractic appointments It was his first time trying the latter, he seems to have some relief from his chronic back pain. His back is like 4 feet long, I swear! Then I went and bought paint for the chair and table. A medium turquoisy blue for the chair and a light lemon yellow for the table. Can't wait to get it done. I also stopped at the drug store and the medical supply place for the elevated toilet seat. I'm beat. So much driving all over the city in heavy traffic. Yuck.

Today I started on the Ensure, 1-2 per day for some time per doctor's orders. Sitting here now to figure out what I have energy to make for dinner. Joe got a last minute invite for an open air concert at the zoo - Weird Al Yankovitch. It's a beauty of an evening.

Oh, and I had had tears in my eyes watching Michelle last night. She is awesome. I'm really going to miss the Obama's intelligence and practicality. She looks younger that when they took office while he looks like he's aged 20 years.

Have a great Hump Day all. Keep your eyes on the prize. emoticon

Hello to all you wonderful women. It has been very hot here too. That has been keeping me in the house. I should have mowed today, but once again to darn hot. (something that won't ever be said about me again)

Debigene, you are a true gift to your brother and all your family.

Carol, glad it has cooled off a little. How did your furbabies handle the heat. My chihuahua who never sheds, is losing all her fur.

Cheryl, The nephew seems to be very talented. Sorry, I can't remember his name. You sure do put in a lot of steps.

Cat, sending out good vibes for you. I'm sure you will do okay. You seem to be able to manage your recoveries well.

Cirra, I'll bet it is nice having some quiet time alone. I'll get some of that when I go to Texas this winter.

Gloria, I wish there was a way to make the words a person types to show the emotion they were sent in. It would look like a soft shout "Hey Gloria" I'm just hoping you are doing okay.

Brenda, stay tuned to us. We miss you and want to cheer you on.

Nightsinge, missing your words here. Hope to see something from you soon.

Hello friends;

Oh boy it was another hot one today ladies and a busy day at work !!! I stopped at the store on the way home for a few essentials and came home to find a message from Brian that he is not being discharged on the 2nd but now the 4th. I called and told him I would try to change my day off to coincide with that date, we shall see. It's really not earth shattering if I can't be there for his discharge and arrival home but I just thought it would help him out a little more to get settled in. I can always go over after work . It will all work out I'm sure.

Cheryl I am so proud of you for all the steps you are getting in and now that your company is gone you can get back on track with your healthy eating. Tell Terri in the beginning when I first lost 10% of my weight I came off all my meds, ..... HP, cholesterol, and was no longer pre diabetic !!!! What a diff just 10% can make. I know if I could do that I could make the big change to learn to live healthier for the rest of my life. I am def doing that now. Most all times I think about the foods I put in my body and they are def healthier than they were 6 years ago !!! I know she will be a success too if she is committed to make it happen.

Hope you got a chance to see the DNC speeches and sounds like Bill Clinton is the only speaker tonight according to the evening news. Think I'll catch that on the flip side.

Enjoy your evening ladies.

Hello all-

Going to be getting back to our "normal" with no houseguests (except for Anthony). Terri's mom left today to go back to Montana.

We're recommitted to losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle. Plus we want to save some money so we'll be eating light meals and juicing at home.

Terri was put on some bp medicine and a side affect is coughing. So that's our first goal - to get her off that medicine.

Walked to light rail this morning and at lunch...1 dot away from 13,000 steps

Taking time off from tv except for the programs we record and can fly through commercials and anything else I don't want to hear about. I know what's going on but need a break. Sorry I missed Michele Obama's speech at the DNC but I'll look for it online tomorrow or the next day.

DG, you are really great helping your brother. I know it'll make a big impact on his rehabilitation. Yes, I agree...love sweet love. ahhhhhhh

Carol, Gold, Cat, Gloria, NS, Cirra, and the rest of you PLOF that pop in when you can, thanks for being here and sharing your stories, hope you're enjoying your day.

Good morning. ..

DG...stay cool. It looks like our heat made it to you.It actually rained yesterday and ended up at 92. It felt a lot better though it was pretty humid.

Cheryl...those squash blossoms look good. I've seen them made on the Food Network and i don't think they are the easiest to make right. Nice pictures!

Have a great day!

Hello dear friends;

WOW Cheryl those blossoms look delicious. I've seen them on cooking shows before and thought I'd like to try them. Did you like them? He must be very talented !!! Having him around the house could be dangerous unless he can cook healthy as well. I'm sure he can, I always think you can make just about everything healthier.

Cirra, thanks hon I will copy and paste this in an email to myself and send it to work where I can take a look. I completely understand as I have lived alone as well since 2001 and altho' I very much enjoyed my friends week long visit when he came in June; it was def an invasion of my privacy. TMI alert !!!!! ...... I sleep nude and did not like having to sleep with clothing on, LOL !!! Heck all this is bad enough that I have to see it let alone someone else too, LOL !!! So I hope you can enjoy it while you can.

I had a busy Monday at work and OMG the ER was swamped, I'm sure a lot of it was heat related too. Temps here reached the triple digits. Heat index was 113 .... yikes !!! Tomorrow we may get a slight relief, we shall see. I was able to get the day off next Tuesday when Brian get's discharged. That will allow me an opportunity to get him settled in and make a grocery store run for him. His friend is suppose to have someone come in before then and clean house for him, that will def be a job !!!!

Ok ladies enjoy the evening doing what makes you happy and peaceful.

Hello ladies.

It sounds as if we had some hot yet restful weekends. I know I am taking full advantage of my "alone" time. My great nieces are home in Jacksonville, FL and my parents went to visit my uncle (dad's youngest brother) then they will visit with a family friend. Not sure when they will be home but my solitary days are coming to an end. I have lived alone most of my adult life and it is rather stressful having three people in my apartment. I really need to step up the job hunt and get back to the Dallas area and buy a house!

DG - try this web site and see if it helps with your shockwave issue.

Sounds like a fun and relaxing day at the river, Cat. Keeping you in my thoughts as the big day draws near. Take care!

Terri's mom is still here and we took her to Tillicum Place Café. Anthony was the chef that night (sometimes he is support to the other chef). So proud of all he is capable of doing and with a great attitude. He's a joy.

we ordered squash blossoms. they're stuffed with just a bit of something (cheese?) I'll have to ask when I see him tonight.


Have a great week PLOF!

Good Monday lady friends;

Sounds like water was the way to cool off this weekend, I didn't have that luxury but I stayed in mostly so I didn't have any problems. Except eating out of boredom !!! SO I too made some bad choices Cat. I completely forgot to do the W/L chart, so thanks for the reminder. I will try to do it before work if time allows.

Yesterday I did visit Brian for a bit and took him a slurpee from 7/11 as it was close by and only melted slightly. He enjoyed it and that's all that matters. I brought his laundry home to do this week, perhaps tonight. This is his last full week for inpt rehab as he goes home on the 2nd.

Dangerous temps here today they are advising so at least I will be busy at work and not home eating out of control !!!

Hope everyones' day is cool and comfy and healthy.

Good morning ladies. ....


Ooops...i forgot to check in yesterday. ..i did have a lot going on. The heat has finally broken a bit....it did hit 100 yesterday but today only 92. We had a bit of cloud cover and it didnt seem so bad.

Linda is going to the memorial service for her second cousin in Dallas on Thursday...they just released his body over the weekend. They had to really investigate the incident since it was a suicide and he will be cremated.She is going with her sister and family.

So...I'm babysitting the furbabies and taking Friday off. We have someone coming over on Thursday to take care of them. They are a handful.

Have a great week. ..stay cool and hydrated!

Happy almost the work week all!
Looks like everyone had a busy weekend since there were few check-ins! Hope no one got totally overheated.

My weekend went nothing like planned. Both kids had issues that needed my support. So my exercise chair is still sitting dismantled and unpainted, and there are still preparations and batch cooking to do this week. Tomorrow I have the pre-op appointment with the surgeon. Eek, 1 more week!

Today I spent some glorious time dipping my toes into the beautiful and wild Skykomish River about and hour and half from Seattle. It was the perfect day, not too hot, perfectly blue sky with a nice breeze. Such a mental vacation. We planted chairs on a sandbar a few feet from shore and had lunch and soaked up the sun and fresh air. If there is time next weekend hope to take one more short trip before I'm sequestered at home for a while.

My eating has been all over the place, just grabbing things as I go and not many good choices. I didn't dare get on the scale today. I am happy though that I've been getting some extra sleep this past week.

Have a great start to your week! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Happy Sunday PLOF!

Cat, you're really getting out and about in snowball. Good for you!

Not a whole lot going on. We went to a small street fair yesterday and it was very warm in the direct sunshine. Was able to start Christmas shopping with the little money I brought along. Today taking it easy until dinner at Tillicum. Place Cafe.

Will get ready for next week at some point today.

Terri's mom leaves Tuesday and we will get back to our very regular schedule.

Stay hydrated!

Oh yeah, swam / water walked in pool yesterday! :-)

Good Sunday morning friends;

Cat every time I read about how much you are enjoying your Snowball, I just get a big smile on my face. I'm so happy for you hon.

OMG boy was it hot out yesterday !!! I ventured out to the store for some BD cards (today is my niece Christen and Thursday is Rodney's) and a few little gifts for them. I wanted to get some LF ice cream or sherbet but they were out, so I did without. Later I wanted to go out and get some dinner but decided to just cook a turkey burger with some mushrooms and steamed broccoli, it was def a healthier choice !!!
Plans to day are to visit Brian and p/u his laundry to do this week. If I think I can manage to get a cool treat to last long enough I will take it to him as a surprise. Other than that I have no plans, still very hot out today.

Cirra, NS, Brenda, Gloria, haven't seen you in a bit so hope you all are doing well. Pop in and let us know when you can.

Well ladies I hope you all have a nice day ahead of you and are doing your best to stay cool and mindful of the heat. TTFN

Wow Cheryl. That was quite a walk. I'm trying to figure out where that is exactly. Somewhere along 99? You are so committed to your steps, great job!

Sounds like most of you are really suffering from high heat. Yesterday I drove over to visit Sam in Redmond and actually had to turn the heat on in the car is it was so chilly. It's been raining for a couple days but they're saying we may get up into the 90s next week.

Tomorrow the plan is for Maureen and I to take a drive somewhere out towards the country. Looking forward to getting out of town.

Take care all. emoticon

Good Saturday morning friends;

Temps are rising here already too Carol, so I will just play this day by ear right now. No plans !! I've already put a 1 lb pork loin in the oven to kick start my cooking. I may also make a pot of spaghetti and turkey meatballs. Got to get my freezer stocked so I don't have to cook during the week. Also makes portioning meals much easier as well.

That's it ladies, have yourselves a healthy safe cool weekend.

Good morning. ..

I didnt have to work today i was all caught up!! Yay..So I'm sitting on my patio in my jammies drinking coffee with my lovely wife and furbabies. We are getting ready to go inside as it is at 8:40 already starting to get hot. It was 105 yesterday...terrible. It will be that hot today also so indoors is where we will be today.

Gold be careful...stay hydrated and stay in the AC. As much as you want to Pokemon this heat is dangerous and we don't want anything to happen to you.

I'm being very careful myself. ..I'm doing my fitness on my treadmill. Tomorrow i will go to the gym but very early. We are thinking about going to a movie tomorrow. ..any suggestions?

You lovely ladies have a great weekend! Stay cool!!

Evening friends;

Gold please do be safe hon, you don't want everyone that loves you so much to worry. IT's probably to late now but dinner suggestion for the boyfriend would be meat, potatoes and salad, can't go wrong there !!! I had a friend once that planned a miniture golf even inside her home with each of the holes being in different rooms !! Certainly was a lot of fun and laughter.

Cirra so glad you got a break in your weather. Girl I am allergic to the elastic in my wrist brace so I can completely understand. I have to wrap a paper towel around my wrist before I put the brace on. I can also agree that a trip to Walmart is no picnic !!!

OMG, Cheryl you really rocked those steps girl !!! And good job facing your fear crossing the overpass. Oh and I've played the Mex Train dominoes before and really had a fun time, enjoyed it a lot !!!

I noticed tonight that something called shockwave keeps slowing down my PC and it is so annoying. If any of you techies out there know what I can do about it PLEASE let me know. Thanks

With that said I'm over it for now and will wish everyone an enjoyable Friday evening. It's just taking too long for what I type to load to the screen. Maybe tomorrow will be better ?????

emoticon this a.m. :-( taking a friend to lunch and hope we get dry weather even if it's cloudy. I'm eating food here in the office this morning and won't go to the restaurant hungry.

20,796 steps yesterday after walking at lunch (2 miles) and then walking half way home (4.9 miles).

Had to cross on an overpass (over railroad tracks). This is not an easy task for me and I used the handrail to stay grounded. I found out I don't like heights in my early 20s when I went to SF community college and had to cross over on a skywalk bridge (over an overpass with cars passing under it) and I felt like crawling would be the best way to get to the other side. Of course, I didn't allow myself to crawl, but I wanted to.

Quick to cross in car; painfully slow to walk over. That's just mid point at the end of the bridge you see in pic.

Gold, do you have Mexican train dominoes? It's our favorite. Playing double 12s down to blanks is a long game. If we don't have enough time we start at double 6s.

Hope you all have a fun-filled Friday and great weekend.

Good day, PLOF!

Our weather has broken a bit. We will be in the high 90's this weekend (forecast is 98) then forecast mid 90's Monday with Tuesday at 91 then climbing back to mid 90's through the week. I will take it! It is a nice break from the 100's!

I think I am having allergic reactions to the silicon wrist band on my FitBit HR. I may have to bit the bullet and go to the Blaze and get a leather band for it since you can't change this one. I will have to find someone to pass this one on to. Gave mom an Alta for Mother's Day so she could have a better idea of how much she is walking through the day and sleeping at night. She needs to walk to help her arthritis. I also have a recumbent exercise bicycle in my apartment that she uses twice a day. She says when she doesn't she can tell the difference. We work to keep her healthy especially since she had a kidney removed last year. Her nephrologist and urologist expected her to be on dialysis by now but since she and dad came to live with me her kidney function has gone up about 10% and is currently functioning at 24%. Both docs were amazed.

I was pretty antisocial after going to WalMart yesterday to get a new tote to make a covered cat box out of (old one cracked on the bottom). Cutting a hole in the side is much less expensive than buying a covered cat box! I also did some grocery shopping. I needed yogurt for lunches, fruit and bought some of the pre made salads to bring for lunch too. Generally, the people at my WalMart are rude and I hate shopping there. I actually do most of my shopping at the grocery on the corner up from my apartment. I just went home, unloaded and put everything up and turned on Netflix. I usually play my video games but I didn't feel like imposing my sour mood on any of my friends so just avoided the games.

Hope all of you are having a great day!

Hot and Humid here again today. So another day I'm home bound. It seems like even in the house with the air on I'm having trouble getting enough air. I find this very depressing as I want to go Pokemoning. I think it is suppose to level off tomorrow. I hope so. We also had an air pollution advisory yesterday.

Tonight my oldest granddaughter and her boy friend are coming for dinner. He only eats meat and non-spicy food so I don't know what to cook for him. He was bring down some of his frizzbe golf stuff so we could play a little. Now I don't know what we will do as I can't be outside.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Hang in here with us Gloria.

TGIF friends;

I feel your pain Carol the temps are suppose to be triple digits here too today and all weekend !!! YIKES !!!! I doubt that I'll be doing much that requires going out doors may just have to be a cooking weekend and get my freezer full.

Hope everybody pays head to the temps in your area and makes sensible decisions to adjust accordingly.

Gotta run this PC is acting up, will copy in case I lose it before I post it.. Have a healthy happy FABULOUS day !!!

Good morning all. ...

The heat is stifling....we have an excessive heat warning again today. The actual temp yesterday was 104. Its miserable.... I've been working out at home on my treadmill. With the heat indexes its terrible outside. The gym is awful right now and I can't do a lot of my weightlifting because of my hand. I'm restricted to lifting 15 lbs or less.

I'm doing well...the hand is great. On the way to a full recovery. Of course I've been working a lot.

Have a great day!

Hello fabulous friends;

Sounds like everyone is doing a little something to stay on track, BRAVO to all !!!

Me, made a yogurt parfait for breakfast, with fresh mango and raspberries, granola with vanilla coconut FF yogurt. Lunch was a large piece of leafy green lettuce with a slice of turkey and cheese rolled up, a serving size of baked chips and 20 red grapes. Dinner was cup of shrimp salad with lettuce wrap, some baked french fries, cucumber and tomato salad, and the last of the broccoli salad about a cup. Work was good and now just one more day to go. Weekend ahead looks like a scorcher here.

Sounds like I'm just rambling on so will wish all you fine ladies a pleasant and peaceful evening.

Good morning friends;

All went well last night since I didn't have to make the trip to haul my Dad home. Ray and Mar got back early enough to get him and take him back with them. Dad and I had a nice visit with Brian and a friend of his stopped by as well.

Not sure what the temps are like outside yet today but I hope it is as nice as yesterday. It was hot but the humidity made it pleasant for those of us that like the heat.

Today is my special day to keep thankfulness in focus and I have sooooo much to be thankful for. I hope you each get a moment to stop and give it a thought as well.

Have a healthy happy and active day sharing your smile as you go. Stay focused on your goals for living healthier and do stay positive. Remember kindness is so easy to give and makes you happy in return.

TTFN

Hello ladies,

DG - That is great news about Brian. I know he will be happy to get home. Also great about the cat!

Carol - Most of my tattoos are pretty good sized but the phoenix is the largest, single piece.

Cheryl - Love the pics! They are beautiful. I miss mountains...

Cat - I wish our weather would cool off. We were pretty mild (80's and low 90's) until the last month or so when we started to get the heat at 100+/- a few degrees and up to 107 and 108 several days running.

Gold - I will keep your daughter in thoughts and prayers. I hope her sight stays with her for a long time. I am sure Pokemon want to get out of the heat too!

Thank you all for the complements on my phoenix. I love her and think she is beautiful. She did, however, have me miss work yesterday. Swelling is normal with tattoos and Monday my foot was an over stuffed sausage. I got up yesterday and it was still swollen but not nearly as bad. By the time I was ready to put on my shoes my toes were so swollen they barely moved. I called off work and kept my foot up. I am happy to say I am back at work today with no major issues. Still slight swelling but nothing like before.

My answer to TV and commercials...Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. I also have a subscription to the Sundance Documentary service. If none of that works then I get my tablet and go to youtube and find a TED Talk that sounds interesting. LOL

Hi ya'll;

Just a quick poke in to see what's happening. Cat I would venture to guess the anticipation has a lot to do with a lot !!! You're in my prayers as well for a successful procedure hon.

I hear what you're saying re: the TV programming. Being a BIG TV fan myself I have come to love the DVR, it allows me to FF thru the commercials, LOVE IT !!! Now about that RNC, NO COMMENT is best said from me !!! Just prayers for a feminine outcome to the election it the best I will say.

I hope you hold strong thru the parties.

TTFN

Debigene, glad you are able to get here then. Hope a new computer is in your imminent future. Gold, I am SO sorry to hear about your daughter. She is so lucky to have you for a mom. Whew Carol, I can’t even imagine, don’t overheat. You are amazing going to the gym in that.

I’m sure getting tired. I think the realization that the surgery is less than 2 weeks away is making me both apprehensive (hard to sleep) and relieved that it will soon be over and I’ll be pain free for the first time in a long time. Thank goodness for health care.

I was at Maureen’s last evening using her blower to get all the dust out of the filigree in the sanded chair before priming it. Can’t wait to start painting. While I was there we sat down and watched some of the convention. I haven’t actually watched TV in probably 4 or 5 years and I forgot how irritating all the commercials were. That on top of seeing and hearing some of my least favorite people. Pretty damn disgusting. The hate rhetoric is really unbelievable. So subtle in some ways but the fact that all those people – I mean what’s up with the women?? – is truly disheartening and downright scary. I’ve yet to hear the Repubs plans for the future except to undo what the Obama administration worked so hard to achieve.

Today we have TWO going away parties here at work which means trouble food wise. Eekk.

Take care all, emoticon

Have a great day all!

Good morning. ...

Oh yes...are we ever in a heat wave! Its over a 100 here now and will be for several days. Yesterday when I got in my car at 3pm it said 108 on my dashboard. ..i had a sunshade up too. It made it hard to go to the gym but i did.

Today i get my stitches out. I would say the surgery was a success! . For those of you suffering with a trigger finger...I'm glad i got it fixed. Pretty minor surgery and good results!

Have a great day!

Gold - scroll down in this thread and you will see the pics. Stay safe and smart inside during this hot spell, the mall would work.
You can count on my prayers for sure hon. Remember God is good and has a plan.

Cat, we are not sure at this point weather the stay at Dad's will be permanent yet. Guess that depends on how things will work living together ???? We are going to have a family meeting to put things out on the table and see where it goes from there. We shall see.
Rodney's walker has the basket and he also bought a try that clips on to the top so he can eat on it as well as carry a plate say from a buffet I manages so well independently now. Comes in handy when he is home alone. So good hearing how much you are enjoying your time with Joe hon. Spoil him as much as you can while you can !!!

This time it is goodnight emoticon

I just lost a long text and it makes me sad. Debigene, I am glad Brian is doing so well. How do you all get the photos. I only saw Cheryl as I went to her blog. I want to see NS photo and Cirra's tattoo.

Carol, so sorry about Linda's nephew. Suicide is a terrible thing. It leaves such as agonizing hole.

I need your prayers once again. My handicapped daughter who is in the group home has never had a good break. She is deaf, paralyzed on the right side, hydrocephalic, blind to the right from both eyes, has a seizure disorder, and is developmentally delayed. She lived at home with me until she was about 34 years old and broke her foot. She has never been able to walk since then. Now on a recent eye exam I was told that she has Macular degeneration. Even though she is blind to the right from both eyes, she figured out how to scan her world and do find a word puzzles and loves elementary adding and subtracting books. Please send up some prayers for her. Without, sight sign language and communication would be lost.

The weather here is very hot and humid. Today I can not go outside because it is to hard on my lungs. So Pokemon Go has to wait until it cools down. The next two days are suppose to be even hotter. I guess I could go walk in the Mall.

Have a goodnight everyone.

Greetings lovely ladies!

Wow Cirra, that's an amazing tattoo! You are so brave. Nice to see you Night! Hope to catch you in person one of these days. The pics are amazing Cheryl, thanks for the virtual vacay. And so glad about Brian Debigene. So is his move to your dad's permanent? How great to have all the family you do.

Just got back from picking up the walker. It comes with a little basket so that will help me be more self sufficient getting meals from point A to B, etc. Then went to the Grocery Outlet & spent $80 and got enough to last Joe and me for a good while. Love that place - even have quite a few organics now, do you guys have those where you live? I did get a half gallon of chocolate ice cream "for Joe". Lord give me strength. It's so hard not to indulge him when I know he doesn't get some of his faves in China.

Weather is delightful here. Nice rain last night and maybe mid to upper 70s today and sunny. I had the air conditioning on in the car which is unusual for me.

Take care and keep cool everyone.

Hello my friends;

Boy what an aggravating morning trying to get on SP.I could get to my start page but I couldn't get on the team page, so that's why you didn't see a morning post from me.Even now it's been a little difficult and I just don't understand it. Oh well I'm here now.
I had a good day at work and stayed on track with my food choices. Dinner was almond crusted flounder, broccoli, wild rice and a salad. All portioned sized. Got a few extra steps in but still nothing close to Gold.

WOW, Cheryl I saw your pics and they are breath taking. I would probably be reduced to tears if I saw in up close in person !!! Thanks for sharing a little part of your trip with us.

I will not be here tomorrow evening, I'm going to visit Brian and my bro and sil (Ray and Mar) are dropping my Dad off there so I will have to take him home. That's an all night affair.

Carol are you in the heat wave I saw on the news tonight? What's everyone elses' weather like ? Hot and humid here (90s)

Enjoy a pleasant and peaceful evening ladies.

Evening friends;

WOW that's some tattoo !!! I can see why it hurt so much !!! Course I would think any would hurt, I'm a sis and do not handle pain well, just sayin'.

Indeed it sounds like everyone has had a busy/fun weekend, so good to hear all that's going on in your lives. Thanks so very much for sharing it here. Including you 'private' pic NS. Love it, you look quite festive !!! Cat your projects look like they are off to a good start, can't wait to see the end results. Cheryl I looking forward to seeing the pics from your day at Mt. Rainier It sounded like a fun day. If I were going on a hike I'd like it to be with you.

Ladies I have good news about my bro Brian to share .... his discharge date is to be 8/2 !!! His home visit went great; I had time enough to stop by his house while they were still there and the PTs told me they were VERY pleased with his progress and ability to get around the house. They made s few small safety requirements that make perfect sense. And a BIG positive, the female PT said she would take his cute little cat Lucky when he moves to my Dad's !!!! What a relief and it made him so very happy she would have a home. That little kitty went right to her. It was def a sign. What a way to start off a new week !!!

Ok time to do dishes and put Dusky to bed shortly. Wishing all you lovely ladies a delightful evening.
