Hope that helped her sleep last night. Have you thought about arranging a play date for her with that child's parent?
Good pool workout although I was not feeling really energetic---did what I could or felt like, but know I did a decent workout.
We are in testing mode---midterms next week---so I need to go in---otherwise I would think of taking off a day, but should save that for when we don't have any short weeks---LOL

Thanks for the tip.

I didn't get to the gym-should have but didn't move fast enough. Between that and Aaliyah moving full speed ahead I'm worn out. She did have fun at church dinner tonight. One of the group who prepared dinner had a little boy-about 3 and he and Aaliyah were chasing each other and having a blast. Now she's really tired and wants to grab whatever device I'm trying to use.

I know I got post partem depression after the birth of my 2nd one---watch for that and make her get help---nowadays there are a lot more options and they realize that it is real.
Looking forward to the pool tonight. We are in a warm spell here---crazy weather. Hope you get a break today and maybe the pool.

I got busy this morning and missed water aerobics-not used to watching the clock, I guess. We spent a little time with Trish this morning but not much. I hope other people will visit so she doesn't get too depressed. I think that happens too easily for her and always has.

I'm hoping that Aaliyah will start getting tired and slowing down so we can go to bed as soon as I finish today's sparking.

Didn't they go ahead and fix her while they were in there? Thought that was the plan to start with. No, not too little---too funny about Aliyah's actions--about normal reaction---hope she turns into a good big sister.
Good workout last night---know because I was sore and had to get up and take some meds last night---LOL

What little one? The new baby is nearly 10 lbs and the doctor who said he didn't think her head was still down was wrong and she had to be pulled back out. Hopefully it didn't mess neither mom nor baby up. She WAS told no more c-sections. Aaliyah just growled at her before ignoring her.

Good for you in telling her that you were unavailable to do that---she should go in when someone is in the office and the 2 of them can do it together---and maybe then others will see that she is the reason no one else wants to do it. Hope the little one let you get some rest today---looking forward to hearing about the new one--name and weight---and a picture would be nice, too.
My son came by yesterday and took all the bins down to the basement---woohoo!---dh is still working on the outside lights ---we might do the net lights today since i am home---slowly getting it done out there---still need son to take down the ones on the porch and around the window. I don't worry about that as that is not my chore---LOL

You're way ahead of me. I've taken some things and put them in my closet but haven't put anything away. I haven't even gotten the outside lights put away because I want to check and make sure they work. before I put them in the box. I didn't go back to church to count money and Elaine was a bit upset. I told her I wouldn't be any good for counting after being up most of the night with a very fussy baby and she asked me about this evening or tomorrow. Well, tomorrow I plan to be at the hospital to see the new baby plus I'll still have Aaliyah plus I really don't feel like counting. She was going to see if someone would do it today with her. She said she sent a note to the bookkeeper. I was going to send her a note, too, but since I woke up I have a little girl wanting attention. Hopefully she lets us both sleep tonight. Right now I think she is hungry and tired. I really need to get some actual food in this house so I can feed her when she's hungry. Now that I'm done rambling, I should finish up here and find something to feed this child.

Oh, my, it must have been really bad for a man to tell them to clean it up---good that they are doing that before the new baby comes in the house. Hope you had a good day with Aaliyah.
I did sleep well Friday night---didn't get up until almost 8---then finished packing up the last of the Christmas stuff---now 13 bins are waiting for my son to come over to take them down to the basement--I will be glad to get them out of my dining room.
Hope you have a good day today.

I hope you get a good rest today. Aaliyah has just shown up for the rest of the weekend so mom and dad can get the house cleaned up (per orders of Aaron's dad). We have no other plans than babysitting and watching football this afternoon and evening. Sounds like a really boring day.

I think others keep us better motivated than anything else---probably why I continue the water aerobics program at the PT place.
2 long and stressful games tonight---I was at school for 13 hours---came home and fixed toast and butter and a cup of hot chocolate--my tummy was too tense after those games to tolerate anything else.

DarkOrange, my trainer and friends were the main reason I got myself to the gym. That and babysitting my grandson so his mom could go to school and then work. I would go to the gym at 5:30 a.m. for cardio, then to Sarah's, back to the gym 9 for a class or at 10 for a training session, home, back to the gym at 6 for another class. I did the classes mostly because a good friend got me into them and she plus other friends were the reason I kept it up. I miss those classes but since that gym closed and we now have LA Fitness I stick with the swimming pool. That and 4 artificial joints emoticon

It always helps if there's someone to meet and work out with whether it's a class or a regular workout. emoticon

I can picture my husband just yelling at her-he was raised that way and that's what he's always done. One would think after all these years he would know that doesn't work.

Still no pool for me but once this baby is born I should be able to start getting back. If Trish needs help she can deal with it at least until lunch time. Larry won't be thrilled but we will have Aaliyah tomorrow night until she gets home from the hospital. Daddy goes to work at 4:30 a.m. so I'm NOT getting up that early-she can just sleep here. Larry can babysit for 90 minutes while I get in some exercise.

Kerry, as long as you give her attention, it shouldn't be too bad---and she will entertain the new baby---Andy was my alarm system if Matthew left the room he was in, he let me know it---LOL--and they were good play mates--sure, they had some little spats but got along pretty well thru out the years.
Orange---yes, I always feel better after getting to the pool and in the water---even if tired or achy, I know I will feel better if I go. Good question---hope you ventured out and got in a good workout.
It is Friday the 13th today---LOL---but a good one---pay day and a casual day for me.

I'm so tired by the end of the day but class is at 6pm so...if I don't physc myself out to not go and go thru the motions to get to the gym...well each time after class I'm feeling perked up, moving better, less ache from sitting all day. Does this gappen to you?

My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far Iíve finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already. - Dave Barry

If you see strange things typed my granddaughter is trying to help you had some different moves in class. If you see strange things here a -small child is grabbing the keyboard. She is 13 months and I'm really not sure how happy she'll be with another baby around-she is very clingy. I was out yesterday sweeping and bagging Maple leaves, I thought because it
my allergies wouldn't kick in but today I am really out of it. I haven't done much of anything.today because I feel warm and out of it. I hope Aaliyah doesn't come down with anything..

Wonder how the little one will handle a new baby. How old is she now? my first 2 were 13 months apart, it went okay but I will say I only had time to feed and change them---dh had to do a lot of the housework as I was either feeding or changing them all day long.
New instructor last night---she did some new thngs with us --nice to do something different---we had a good workout and the pool was really warm again and made me feel lots better.
Hope no excitement and that the baby waits for the c-section.

I did see the car today but will need to check it out when she has time to stay for a bit. Tomorrow is her last day of work before the baby is born. C-section is scheduled for Monday morning. Only 4 days to go.

LOL to it not tasting as good as you remember---I did that the other year---had a craving for a Big Mac--got it and was very disappointed---they used to taste better, too. Did you remember to turn in to see the car in the daylight?
Back to work I go---but with a 2 hour delay---rain came last night and warmer temps so a lot of the snow is gone---I will be able to drive myself to work. No pool tonight as we are making up the basketball games we had scheduled for Tuesday night.

Enjoy your day off. We are cool here again today-down to about 40 for the night. It's been a long time since I've been able to wear all my sweaters and sweatshirts.

I haven't done much of anything this morning. I had to go to the grocery store for the makings of some Watergate salad for our lunch meeting and I stopped at Dunkin for my breakfast-egg and cheese wakeup wrap plus a blueberry muffin which was a disappointment. I remember them as being really good but it wasn't. Maybe it's all the prescription pills the doctor says I need to have. I didn't need all those calories anyway. Well, if I want to see the car in the daylight I will have to stop at the filling station on the way home from the luncheon. It's SO out of the way-NOT. lol I have to drive right by it to get to and from church-now if I can just remember to turn in.

So glad she is getting her own car so you can have yours back to use when you need it. Just keep those new shoes at your house and put her in them there---LOL
I have off another day due to snow---figure tomorrow might be a delay--hope so as we havent' moved my car out yet and dh has to go watch my grand in the morning and won't get back to take me until a bit later than I go in---I will get there but might be late--no big deal if I do get there late.

I got more sleep than the night before-she didn't start doing her fussing until about 6. She doesn't just wake up like most babies, she has to move around and moan and groan for a while first. I stopped today and bought her a pair of shoes. Larry took and picture and sent it to her. She texted me about how ugly they are and the kid will probably never walk again. Plus she has several pairs of shoes (high tops)at their house. Such a thankful child. emoticon Oh well. Tomorrow she is getting a "new to her" car so we will each have a car to drive. Just think of the mileage Larry and I will save on our cars! I have a finance meeting at church tonight.

I'm thinking you burned a lot of calories getting rid of all that snow. We were down to 32 this morning but it's a pretty day with blue skies. Of course, that just makes it colder. Hopefully we have clouds tonight so it doesn't drop as much. Florida can only take so much cold. lol

Did you get a good night's sleep?
I cleared off the vehicles while dh shoveled the sidewalks---both of us finished about the same time---boy, there was a lot of snow on the car and truck. He was able to move his truck up to the front of the driveway and we left my car where it was at. No school day and thinking that tomorrow will be at least a delay so the bus drivers can see the slick spots. It is supposed to warm up tomorrow---if the snow allows it..

That's a lot to shovel. Take care! We're expecting lows in the 30s tonight. A lot colder than we are used to. I'm hoping Aaliyah goes to sleep a lot earlier than she did last night. I need some sleep.

We got 9 inches of snow---yuck---looks pretty but today I will have to go out in it and clear off my car---I am betting we don't have school tomorrow as the side roads and country roads won't be plowed and other areas around me got even more inches, but just in case, we need to have the vehicles ready.

I hate when that happens. I do it too often. One of our anaerobic/aqua instructors is maybe 5ft and tiny but gave birth to two boys both 10+ lbs. Luckily they were a couple years apart.

Speaking of kids, I need to get Aaliyah off to bed.

My last 2 boys weighed 9 lbs 4 and 9 lbs 7---seems like most babies are weighing close to 9 if not more. Sure hope you were able to get some sleep last night.
I got up to snow on the ground---4 to 8 inches is the forecast--I don't plan on going anywhere today for sure. Dh went to get the snow shovel and other shovels for today---and could not find the snow shovel---I know he put it away---guess he put it away too good---LOL

She didn't nap and she didn't sleep but a few hours in the early morning hours. She didn't want a bottle and we couldn't find a pacifier so we were miserable until she finally crashed about 3:30 and then we got up at 6:30 for coffee with friends then picking up Trish and getting her to her Dr visit for a fancier ultrasound which shows a lot more details. They finally decided it's a girl. We took Trish and Aaliyah home, stopped for a quick lunch, home for a short bit, back to pick up Trish and Aaliyah for her regular pregnancy visit. For some reason (they needed money?) They decided her blood pressure was high and we were across the parking lot for a check for any problems. Three and a half hours later we too the girls back home and we came home to crash. They found no problems and the baby could come normally as the head is already down-she weighs 8 lbs 14 oz. I think in a week she could top her aunts weight of 9 lb 4oz.

Did she nap in the car? Shopping with a little one can be tiring.
Enjoyed Mama Mia---but it made for a late night---and I was really hoping for a delay this morning---but no such luck----LOL---we are supposed to really get hit tomorrow with a snow storm---yuck---but at least I can stay home then.

That sounds like a great evening.

I think he's been an alcoholic for nearly 20 years and thinks if he only drinks one or two days a week it's not a problem. Drinking so much you pass out definitely IS a problem. I sure hope he figures it out soon. He was up and off to work early this morning.

Trish and I had lunch then did some shopping at Target-all those god things like diapers, pads, socks for Aaliyah.... I came home wanting a nap but a small child is not cooperating.

Oh, my, is he really that stupid? And she doesn't need that kind of drama with the new one soon to be there. Guess he is jealous that others are getting the attention he needs--that is so sad.
Doctor said not to wait so long if my hip started to hurt me again--so no needle this time so I could go to the pool last night. And the water was soooo warm and felt wonderful last night.
My mom is coming over today and we will go out to dinner---thinking we will go to the Irish Penny---she has never been and they have very good food--and then we are going to see a Broadway traveling performance of Mama Mia---my Christmas present to her.
Hope today is not filled with drama.

I got the fitbit in the mail today and have it charging. There's no new baby, yet, and no we don't know the sex of the new one.
I'm glad you only had one game and was able to make the meeting.
Oh, lordy, Larry has to drive to Aaron and Trish's place to see if Aaron is okay. I guess he was drinking and then took several sleeping pills. She said if he's passed out to call 911 and send him to the hospital. I wouldn't be able to put up with that long. My grandkids deserve a decent life.

Hoping that Fitbit gets you a bit more motivated to move more--that is important when you have young ones to chase after. Did she make it thru the night? is she having a boy or another girl?
We ended up only having one basketball game last night---and the varsity game was more like a JV game---it was painful---but that meant I could make my Master Gardener meeting so that was nice way to end my evening.
I go back to see the doctor about the hip--has been feeling pretty good but was sore last night when I laid on it--I really don't want another needle but it has been nice to sleep better. I got in 10000 steps again yesterday so wondering if that was the issue.
Have a good day!

I ordered a fitbit-hoping it shows up soon. Maybe the few steps I take will shake me up and start moving more.

I think we are getting that same weather though we didn't get as much rain as we needed. Of course, it started after I had half of the leaves raked up and bagged. Now I have to do them wet and heavy or wait until they dry out.

I may not sleep well tonight as Trish is complaining of upper back pains. I think it's from the size of the baby and the way it's situated. With Aaliyah you couldn't tell Trish was pregnant but this baby is way out front and seems to be huge. I'll be keeping my phone on tonight which I hate doing. She's 3 weeks from her due date-1 1/2 from the scheduled C-section. Wait and see is the game now. That and hoping Aaron stays sober.

We have nice temps but rain with it---and once things dry out, it will be a very cold weekend---so our Christmas stuff will probably stay up for a bit, although dh might move the stuff in the front yard to the back.
Guess your dd feels needed that way.
I was actually able to go up the steps with no issues yesterday to the new portable building, but coming out I have to take one step at a time --we will see if that continues. I go back to the doctor tomorrow and I think he will be pleased to hear that.
Missed not having the pool as I did a lot of steps yesterday ---over 10000--so my legs could have used the water. I had to take a nap when I got home---LOL---today the students come back so we will see how they handle the move and changes to where they have to go---should be a chaotic day for them and for me, too---LOL
Have a good Tuesday.

I think she's working as long as she can but will be off several days before the C-section (if she makes it that long). She knew he had a drinking issue before she moved in-one of her biggest problems is that she has to have someone who "needs her help". She gives him the alcohol lecture every time he complains about not feeling good but it only sticks for maybe a week.

Elaine and I did the money counting this morning. I went early so I had time to walk around the church parking lot for a while. Everything went smoothly so maybe I should make that a regular habit. Our gym & pool are open most days even if it's only for a few hours on Christmas and Easter. I just don't usually get there.

I need to get outside and get the Christmas lights down while the weather is nice.

How aggrevating for your dd---but she chose him, she has to live with that until he realizes that he needs to grow up with 2 kids now to support. What would they do if you weren't available to babysit?
I pretty much chilled yesterday since i go back to work today---and no pool, they are closed for the holiday today. I had a roast in the crock pot for dinner yesterday so have a few leftovers and plan on making veg. beef soup when I get home since we don't have to rush off tonight.
Hope your dd is not too down when she drops off the little one. Is she working up until her due date?

I'm sure I typed a reply to this yesterday but I don't see it here. I actually thought since my husband does order things online that he could handle the gift for the kids. Since he retired he wants to take over everything including bill paying, etc. This just means that he does the bills he knows and doesn't consider other bills we might have. He's also had to learn how to transfer money from one card to another to get the interest free deal for 9-12 months. I hate doing it but with some of his spending choices I've had to. I'm hoping by the end of this year we will have that paid for though he's talking about a new car which means payments.

We upset our daughter this evening-I had told her I would keep Aaliyah all night but Larry decided not to. Trish had made a nice big New Years dinner for them and Aaron winds up going to bed because he didn't feel good-ie too much booze, and she was tired from working all day. She said we could have some of their dinner but Larry decided not to. The poor girl had made a prime rib roast plus sides. Maybe I can get her to bring me some when she drops Aaliyah off in the morning.

Don't you know not to trust a man to do that? LOL I told my dh about 6 times that I wanted a new housekey for Christmas---one with Mickey or Minnie on it as they are bigger than normal so easier to find on the key ring---did I get it? NO and it was the only thing I really asked for and he went into Lowe's several times without me when I was at work and that is where they are.
Glad you are done with doctor's for this year---with only 2 days left, hopefully that will still be true---heehee Did you get married on New Year's Eve?
It was freezing in the gym yesterday---I had to get dh to bring me more layers to put on---and I had dressed in double layers to begin with. I am going to wear my cuddle duds today--and thankfully one less game than yesterday--5 was one too many but by then I had finally gotten used to the new scoreboard.
I am looking forward to seeing her movies again--they don't show them often enough---esp. The Unsinkable Molly Brown.

Debbie Reynolds was a wonderful actress as was her daughter. They both had some kind of demon or mental health issues that must have shortened their lives. I'm kind of glad that they are together, though. We should be able to catch some of her old movies on TV now-hope hope.

After having finally figured out why our DD2 and SIL's Christmas gift hasn't shown up. My husband thought he had ordered it-told me he had but had no receipt, no emails saying when it would be shipped and oh yeah, no, it's not showing up on my credit card. If I had ordered something and not gotten that immediate notice I would have gone back and checked the order but not him. I've been looking for this package to show up for the last week. Oh well, since they are out of town they may get home about the same time as the gift shows up. It's things li this that make me wonder how we've made it to our 45th anniversary. Okay, we still have 24 hours before that's official, but...

My left arm where I had the flu shot is still warm and hard as a rock-I guess that's because it's the super dose they give old people. There no pain or itching at all on the right arm where the shingles shot was given. I was in and out quickly today for my mammogram so I'm done with the doctors this year!

That is nice that you can walk to the drugstore. Good exercise---LOL
Had fun playing the poker and had a good pool workout, too.
My niece was in a bad car accident yesterday---she was taken to Shock Trauma but is going to be very sore---they had to keep her as she will need reconstructive surgery on her ear. Thankfully her dds were not with her as they would probably have been killed----a tractor trailer broadsided her---and she was on a straight line road with no stops for her---he had to have run a stop sign.
I was very sad to hear of Debbie Reynold's passing---I did so enjoy her movies and hope they do a tribute day of her movies this weekend or the next one.

Yeah, she wasn't very old. I wonder if she knew she had a heart issue.
I've never heard of Polish Poker. I agree these days are pretty boring if we don't get ourselves out and about.

I guess I need to go down to Walgreens and see what the insurance issue is for my refills. My appointment went well-he didn't complain about anything but probably will have some complaints when the lab work comes in-they usually do find something to complain about. I need to call and make an appointment for a mammogram but that's it. Oh, he did give me a shot along with orders for another one or two. I wonder if that's what Medicare is balking on paying. Maybe I'll make that long 2-3 block walk and check on it. emoticon

Hope things go well at the Doctor's office and that you don't have to wait too long for breakfast.
Sounds like it is time for the Pastor to man up and ask her to step down---it really shouldn't be your task---maybe you should step back and say to him that she needs to go or no one will count with her--or maybe he needs to be there for a count and see how it goes---of course, then it will go perfectly--LOL
Have PT today, then going to go play Polish Poker, then pool tonight---so I have a busy day ahead--glad as I was bored yesterday---too early to take things down and nothing special to do.
I was sorry to hear about Carrie Fisher's death--she was a year younger than me.

Well, I will be at the doctor's office at 8 a.m. They called me because of a report from the pharmacy that I had refused to pick up my meds. I told her I still had some and I needed to see the doctor before they would refill it so she told the pharmacy to refill it and made the appointment for tomorrow. At least it's early so I can go without eating and get the lab work done then. I'll just have to get up about 6:30 so I can get a shower before I make the drive to their new location. Larry can drive and then we can have breakfast after.

Elaine, as head teller gets her choice-just ask her. lol She just does her thing and has a hard time understanding new paperwork. She also has a hard time understanding that the money is counted several times and the same answer keeps popping up therefore she has to have THAT amount written down. She won't quit because there's no one to take over and she does that same thing with the boy scouts. Her kids are in their 30s but she is still doing the scouts roundhouses, etc, because there's no one to take over. I want to scream "just quit and someone WILL do it". aaahhh.. Maybe someone will suggest she does quit the counting job or I will but I hate to do that to the new folks we're trying to train.

I'm glad you got to enjoy a quiet morning. People are strange about babies. It doesn't help to yell at them to talk rather than make different noises, it doesn't help to order them around because they can't understand any of that. What does it mean to a child under or at 1 when you yell at them to "stop making that noise and just talk". I guess they go brain dead or something.

That money counting really seems like a PIA, esp. working with her---no wonder no one else wants to do it---can you switch and you do the paper work while she counts? Betting she won't do that.
I enjoyed my morning home alone---didn't really have much to do house wise--we had it all clean for Christmas Day. But I did start watching "the Crown" on Netflick about a young Queen Elizabeth--I got thru 3 episodes ---I hope I get to finish it over the break.
Nothing planned for today so not sure what I will do---have plans for the next 3 days so will be busy on those days.
What is wrong with people and babies? My mom is like that, too---annoys the crap out of me when she comments about little ones at a restaurant when they are not really being bad---now, a super noisy one that is not being controlled is another story.

Try try again. I had a post written and went to post but it disappeared. I spent 4 hours this morning counting money-a lousy $4000 but it was very confusing to Elaine (the head counter) because of the new forms and doing 2 services on the same form. It took me forever to find where she had double logged while she was checking my stuff to see where I was wrong. I had the money and had counted it several times so I'm thinking she was the one who needed to fix a problem. As one of our new counters says "the money is here and is the truth-YOU have to match the money". I finally found the problem and will need to see if the bookkeeper can fix the report so Elaine can stop double posting. Larry took me to Arby's for lunch after all this and I wound up with a drink with no flavor. yuck Guess it has fewer calories..

Larry had told me the town Trish and Aaron were travelling to was near Atlanta which is about 4 hours but they were only a couple hours away in southern GA. They should be home soon if they aren't already. Trish was getting upset with Aaron's mom telling Aaliyah to stop blowing raspberries. I asked if she was related to our middle daughter's MIL who yelled at Aaliyah to stop making the screeching noise she does and to start talking.

I hope the tree cutting goes well. Larry made it to church but I slept until after 10-I really crashed after the midnight service. Normally at 10 we are at our middle daughter's for breakfast and gift opening but she had to work this year so it was just the two of us here at home. How boring that was! By myself would have been nice-I could get things done. lol

Did she tell the doctor that she was doing that? Hope she made it back safely and had a good time.
Had a nice Christmas Day--might do a bit of shopping today or might stay home and enjoy an empty house--dh is going over to youngest son's to help cut up a tree and I would have the house to myself for once.
We didn't make church yesterday as we didn't finish up breakfast til late---I wasn't too happy about that but didn't say anything about it.

Merry Christmas. After attending the midnight service last night (with about a dozen others from our church) I realized my bedding was still in the washer so I put it in the dryer and curled up in the bedspread to awaken at 10 a.m. Larry was gone to our church for the 10 a.m. service which I had said I had no desire to attend. Members had complained since thanksgiving that we weren't singing Christmas carols during the services so for Christmas morning the minister decided on a service of carols after the Bible readings, etc. I enjoyed the quiet at home and then went to see the older grandkids and brought our gifts home since Sarah was sleeping after a night of nursing. Trish and Aaron took Aaliyah to Atlanta to see her other grandparents. They left at about 9 p.m. for that 6 hour drive. Hopefully they arrive home okay since she is due in 3 weeks.

I was wondering where you find cherry chips at---they would be good to use in cookies if I could find them. Interesting combo but not one I would like as I just don't like marshmallows---you would think as much as I like sweets that I would like them but I don't--and I don't like cotton candy either.
Hope you have a lovely Christmas day! Dh and I have opened our gifts and he has started the griddle to do the marathon bacon cooking---2 of our sons will come over this morning and we will all go to our other son's house at 1.

Well, that entire post vanished. I've only seen that she's still in the hospital.

We drove to Tallahassee this morning, had lunch with our oldest daughter at cracker barrel, moved gifts and our grandson's stuff from one car to another then brought him back to Orange Park for Christmas. He spent the last week with his aunt and uncle in Niceville.

Cherry mash is a layer of sugar, marshmallows, evaporated milk, cherry chips and vanilla then a layer of peanut butter, chocolate chips and peanuts. It can be tricky to put together. It's also tricky finding cherry chips.

What is cherry mash? I love things with Cherries in it.
We went to see the new Star Wars movie---it was great---would have made more sense to have made this one before the last one though. And did you hear that Carrie Fisher had a heart attack on an airplane yesterday? I hope she is alright.

I didn't make any fudge but did make some cherry mash. I never cared for the actual candy bar growing up but love the homemade version. I give an extra portion to one friend who used to work with me in the Sunday School. I passed out three plates this morning and then Kim's but haven't caught the neighbors, yet. I'll take several to church Saturday evening. Leftovers go in the freezer if kids don't take it.

My grandmother had a great born on her birthday---the sad thing was that we lost contact with her after my cousin and her mom split up as she lived in Washington state and we live in Maryland. My dh was born on his father's birthday--and is a true junior---I always have thought that was special.
Interesting procedure done yesterday---she raised my right let onto her shoulder, then pulled at the hip downwards---didn't hurt but could feel the pressure--and no side effects from it so it was okay.
I made 2 kinds of fudge yesterday---one was regular and the other was a choc. peanut butter fudge---first time I tried that and it turned out well. Plan to give most of it away as dh should not have too much---his sugar count was up this morning just from him cleaning the pot and spoon plus he was not very active---I keep telling him he can't just sit.
Hope you have a good day---plan on wrapping and going to the movies.

Whatever it is works!

I can now say that our bathroom remodel is beginning. Of course, right now it's waiting until Jan 4 for the contractor to come out and get the official measurements, and instructions which the Lowe's employee will have with her when they get here. The cabinets and countertop will have to be ordered which will take a couple weeks so I'm hoping for the end of January. When they get the insulation and drywall in we'll have a couple days to paint and let it dry. We're not paying $400 for them to paint a bathroom. I'm looking forward to being able to tell my brother it's done-he wanted to do it himself but still works full time and helps take care of dad so he's way too busy. Trish's C-section has been scheduled for January 16 which is my dad's birthday. Hopefully she won't go into labor before that-she'll be upset if she misses that date.

Sounds like annoying errands when you have other stuff you wanted to do. What new cookie did you make? I might do some baking or make some fudge today.
Good pool workout last night--we are doing it ourselves, no instructor--so we are getting to do things this one doesn't know to do and we feel like we are getting a better workout than when she is there. I have PT today---she said she was going to do something different with my right hip today---not sure what though.

I feel like I've done absolutely nothing today. I took some cat food over to our daughter's place and fed the cats. They were very happy to see me. Larry and I used a gift card for a small lunch then drove back and forth from there to the doctor's office so they could print out a prescription the pharmacy never got, back to the pharmacy which is close to home and now we'll have to go back to pick up that script. So irritating when there's so much to do. I bought some Mary Kay stuff and that was delivered this afternoon and I've been doing e-mails for the last hour or so. I think I'm about to the end of that list so I can try some new cookies.

Temps this morning in Orange Park, FL was 51 which with the humidity is cold and causes a lot of pain in my hands. Glad we have electric mixers so I don't have to stir the batter!

I need to plan a day for that---but think today is an errand day and hopefully go to see Star Wars---after pool tonight we will go out with our workout buddies for pizza.

Today was a baking day for me. I'll finish up tomorrow and get it all plated so I can pass it out to neighbors and friends. Hopefully I can get the pool in but I also have to take care of daughter's cats since the ran out of food this morning.

Good luck on convincing him otherwise.
No, this is the 3rd time we have been to SS about this problem---hoping this was the last but not holding my breath on it.
Man, the pool was so warm on Monday night---I loved it and felt really good when I got out. Hoping it is that warm tomorrow night when we go again.

I hope your S.S. office is as good as ours. The last time we had to go in was just before closing and my missing check showed up in my account the next morning.

Right now I am hoping my husband changes his clothes and gets down to church for the funeral. He's trying to add to the bathroom work. He thinks they should take the ceiling down to put more insulation in. If they don't HAVE to take it down why would I pay extra? What we do need is to have the attic checked for leaks and replace the insulation then. He seems to think our money will last forever.

Guess she had to learn the hard way---How are you going to be able to handle 2 of them? LOL
Nothing much planned for today---but I think we need to go to SS office to get something straightened out----grrrrr---so maybe we will go out to lunch. Pool tonight.
Have a good Monday!

Well.....I took her to bed and we lay down to watch Frozen which she seemed to enjoy but then she would suddenly fly (fast crawling) toward the end of the bed. I would grab a leg or two and pull her back telling her it was going to hurt if she fell. Well, after lying still for a while suddenly she took off and flipped off the end of the bed. She was rather shocked and cried some but settled down and went to sleep. Her mom came to get her about 12:40 so I was then able to get some sleep. Today we had Sunday School and church-There were only two of us in Sunday School so we just sat and read the Bible chapters we've been studying. The church service was the cantata which was nice.

I have to get cards done, start my baking (why do I keep putting it off?) Every year I do bake less and give to fewer people but it would be nice if I could do it before Christmas. emoticon

Well, it was dumb meetings and stuff so I left for PT and then called in sick and never went back---they made it so we had to have lunch earlier than we planned and I would not have been there for it so I just got so mad that I figured it was best to not go back.
LOL, little ones have so much more energy than we do----hope she slept well and that her grandfather tired her out for you.
Officially on Holiday Break---so nice to have all this time off so that I don't have to rush to wrap presents or be stressed trying to fit it all in. Had a good PT session yesterday, too.
Have a good day---we have warmed back up but with rain and slick roads as they were so frozen that the rain made it very slippery out there.
OH, and my sister's car was totaled while she was at work---she has to park out on the street and a drunk slammed into her brand new car---thankfully she had the gap insurance to cover the difference and was able to get a new car again---thankfully she was not in the car or she would have been dead.

I hope the rumors are greatly exaggerated. Congrats on the wins.

I did get to the pool for my hour workout then went and picked up Aaliyah who we have for the night now. It's amazing how we can forget hour hyper the small ones get in the evening. It's exhausting just watching her. Larry wasn't helping until I told him she was spending the night-he quickly changed his tune. lol I'm trying to finish my sparking so I can get the two of us headed to bed and sleep.

We were in the 60s today and should be in the 70s tomorrow which is pretty normal. My family in Nebraska is dealing with lots of snow and dumb drivers. My brother nearly got hit by a guy who was impatient with a car accident or it just spun out or something but he nearly hit my brother trying to U-turn. I need to finish up here. Later!

Hope you get to the pool today---nice to have a visit but not when it interferes with plans.
We won against our other city rival last night---but another late night---but that's okay--it was the last day with kids---today I have to go in and hope to help out some teachers with packing up for the move---heard that they have some stupid thing planned for us IA's---let's just say that I don't plan on doing any stupid game or crap that we heard was on the plans plus I leave at 10 to go to PT, then going back for lunch---if they push us to much, we will all go home sick.
Have a good Friday! is it still cooler than normal down there? Frigid up here for another day, then the warmth comes back tomorrow.

I have to just get in quickly and don't stop moving. I don't get cold until the end of class cool down and then I hurry to a hot shower. I haven't made it to the gym thanks to kids and everything else. Our middle daughter came over this morning and visited for a while then I swept up and bagged a LOT of Maple leaves which always bugs me because we don't have any maple trees. Our next door neighbor has 2 or 3 and the folks across the street have 2.

I'll try to get to the pool tomorrow after coffee then I need to get the car to Trish because she is working at 2.

And I could not handle a cooler pool for workout---LOL---it would take me at least 10 minutes to ease my way down to my waist in anything else---I hate cold---plus I have never had issues with heat flashes so that doesn't effect me either. I had a good workout last night--went a little early to get in some extra time since I missed on Monday.
Well, last day with students this year---tomorrow everyone will be busy packing for the move--I have been helping clean out old files in my planning area---I found stuff from the 80's in there--from teachers who have been long gone from teaching.
Weather has turned very cold here---wind chills tonight might hit zero----brrrrr, but warming back up for the weekend.
Have a good day--hope today is not as busy for you.

Wow! That heat would make me sick. I can't handle the pool over 80. I did try a really warm walking pool & was okay with it.-it's a fairly small circle and you can walk with the flow of the water or against it. Too bad it's halfway across the country and I haven't seen one around here.

It is bedtime and it's been a busy day so I'll check back in tomorrow.

I work out in a therapy pool and it is lot warmer than that---and I like it--the thermeter says 90 but sometimes it is cooler---we don't like it cooler---LOL---warmer muscles are easier to move. I get to go to the pool tonight---woohoo!
Scented candles are a nice gift---if you can have them---I can only have spices or fruit scented ones---any others set me in fits. Nice that you can put it in a registry for others to use. Hope you can get to the pool today.

You should ask what the pool temp is set at-78-80 seems to be the best range if you're really moving around. Our pool feels cold when you fist get in but about 10 you can feel the water pumping in gets a lot warmer.

We had a Christmas lunch/party today with the senior group from church. It was a lot of fun this year. When we left I registered what I had won since I'm not supposed to have scented candles and today's was the third one just this week. Tomorrow I do plan to be back in the pool.

Linsey, hoping it is just taking a while for it to warm up if the heater wasn't on as it got cooler. Do you have a cover on top to keep the heat in---that is important to have a solar cover in to help keep the heat in and absorb some of the sun rays.
Kerry, that was no fun---honestly,, I would walk away from it after you got the same total and let her figure it out on her own and also take it on her own---or suggest that you do the paperwork while she counts. Somebody needs to step up and take the job away from her.
We won both games---but the varsity game was long--lots of foul calls--other team plays more street ball so gets a lot of calls---just shows that the coach no longer has any control over his players---he has been coaching a long, long time and I think this shows that he needs to step down---and the players go Techs for mouthing off---another example of no control. They are our biggest rivals personally so it felt good to beat them.
Had a good PT session, too--she worked on sciatic nerves and my left leg---then had heat on them---that felt really good.
Have a good Tuesday!

Sorry your pool isn't heated. I wouldn't want to swim in a cold pool either. People complain about the pool at our gym even on days when the water feels almost to warm for me. I don't like the pool too hot but that hardly, if ever, happens.

The money counting only took about 4 hours (read that in a sarcastic tone) so there went half a day. Then this evening was back to church for the finance meeting which did go fairly quickly. When I took the bookkeeper the paperwork I told her I wanted to do a "Don" which is the name of our newest helper who is quick to point out that the money is "the truth" and if it adds up the same way a couple times then it is up to the other person to make sure the paperwork matches. I must have counted the money 3 times telling Elaine that she's wrong but she will never admit to it. She did go through and find a few mistakes but 4 hours to find it is just crazy. After that getting to the bank I was told to go back and get a check that had been dropped in the safe while we were counting and add it to the day's count. Well, we were done by then and what we had was at the bank so I had to go fight with the safe for at least 30 minutes before getting it open, copy the check and deposit slip, leave copies for the finance members who need them, and deposited Oh well-it's all done and I wish the school owner would get his payment in on time-he dated it for the day it was due but that was last Friday. Oh well, I am home in my jammies and just relaxing.

As it turns out, we now are finally settled enough in the new place to have time for swimming. BUT, the promise of a heated pool seems to be an empty promise. I will keep checking, just in case. Otherwise, I don't see us using the pool until Spring...

Hope the money counting went swiftly.
I found the jars at the price I wanted to pay---95 cents---spice jars---and the label was perfect on it and I have filled them up---each jar got a different color in it so that took a bit longer to do but I think they look neat that way.
Off to work today and have PT in the afternoon, then back to work the basketball games---no pool tonight due to the games.

I like your decorated house.

I'm sure she had things for sale butt I also think she wants to get to know more people. They haven't lived here very long. I will need to stop by and pick up the stuff I won in a drawing plus what I ordered. That's going to have to wait until the money counting is done.

Did you got to the open house? Why would you need to take something? I bet this was her way of selling some of her supplies----I know a lot of sales reps do that at this time of year so people can pick up last minute gifts plus they can get rid of some of their inventory to make room for the new stuff coming out.
We went to the Harbor Freight store yesterday--first time we have gone in---like a man's toy store---LOL---but did get some gifts for 2 of our sons and for my dh. I did get my rainboots at Boscov's--I had to try them on so that worked for us.
Today I need to find some small jars to make some chill pill containers for my fellow workers---and maybe bake another batch of cookies.
Hope you have a good day---stay warm--that is cold for Florida---cold here but warming up tomorrow, then dropping big time for Thursday and Friday.

Sorry you have to deal with that pain. My left hip was bothering me this morning and part of that may be the cold. We got down into the upper 30s which is cold for Florida. But being Florida it won't last long. I have an invite to an open house this afternoon. Can't decide if I really want to go but I did order some make up from her that I need to pick up so... I don't feel like baking cookies today but I could whip up some candy or just buy a cheese plate or something. Hmmm...

It wasn't too bad---knew the IT bands would hurt when they rubbed them---felt pretty good at school but last night they started getting sore---I took some pills and they helped for part of the night---but early this morning they started bothering me again so I just went ahead and got up.
Definitely cold here this morning. I plan on baking cookies and going shopping---but not as much as last week and going to make dh come with me---that way I know I won't stay out all day.
Glad you had a good workout---and very glad that you are getting back to the pool and working out---know you will feel a whole lot better doing that.

I hope PT went well. I need to think about paint color, too. We had a good aqua class. The instructor seems to be well liked and does give us a workout.
