I planned on making Chef Meg's mini apple tarts & mini sweet potato tarts to take to my mother-in-laws for Thanksgiving. My husband told me last night that they only wanted me to bring dip! Too bad, they'll get that, but they're getting the tarts too! Everything they make is calorie laden, so if I want to eat sensibly, I need to bring my own food. Anybody trying anything new this year?

What a pain in the rear that must have been!!

I had computer problems yesterday too. The last week or two it has been increasingly hard for me to connect to the internet. Yesterday morning I couldn't connect at all so I took my laptop to the computer tech store. They checked it out and said there's nothing wrong with the computer. They advised I come back home, hook everything back up, and then call their tech support guy and he would walk me through some things that might correct the problem. I did all that and I still couldn't get on the internet so they sent a repairman out here. He checked all my connections and my modem and all that and couldn't find any problem. He was just as mystified as I was. While we were standing here chatting all of a sudden it connected!! He ended up hooking up a new modem and internet connector even though he didn't find anything wrong with the old one. So, I'm up and running even though we still don't know what the problem was!! Crazy electronics!!

Didn't make it here yesterday - I opened an email (not from anyone here) and there was an ad for a trial period for a new antispyware program. I clicked to see what it was and...it installed itself on my computer, told me I had serious virus problems, then about 6 porn sites went up on my Desktop! I called my sister in and said "Is that a picture of what I think it is?" She just looked and said "OMG! Get that off!" I kept trying to remove it, but it kept reinstalling itself! Finally, this morning, I had to do a Restore System, and go back to when I first got on yesterday morning. everything fine now, but couldn't do anything yesterday! If you see something that looks like it comes from Microsoft, and says AntiMalWare - delete it immediately!

Good to see you back in action! Went through 6 weeks of PT back in August-September for my back/neck and doing fine (still doing the exercises at home like a good girl!). Have a great weekend all!

Yes, my daughter has listed and given away quite a bit of stuff on free-cycle too. She loves it!! I think it's great. You get rid of stuff you don't want and people that really need it can have it for nothing. That's awesome!!

hi...wow that's really impressive Granny...not only loosing weight but getting rid of excess baggage...i have slow started on that too...my housekeeper called one of our rooms the box room...i kept all the amazon, and other cardboard boxes...but now that the post office does everything that fits into one box at a flat rate...i got rid of most of them!!!!! i also joined the freecycle.org group here for those things i couldnt throw away but you offer it only FREE and people contact your email and then you arrange for when they pick it up...works really well...gave away a swimming pool ladder that had been sitting in the yard for 23yrs, a hospital bed that i bought on surplus for 15$ in original box but never used and it has been taking up sapce for 10years, a print of a cougar, almost everything i have offered even small rather inconsequential things people have wanted and have come and picked up....makes me feel good too! good luck with your projects!

Instruction books for appliances that we don't even have anymore!!I've been through every room in the house in the last 2 days and I think I've finally gotten rid of everything I don't need or want anymore. WHEW!!!!! What a job!!

I really need to go through the house and get rid of the things I haven't used in ages and probably won't again. One of these days...! My husband is always saying "You need to get rid of the old stuff around the house!" But I always tell him that he's the oldest thing in the house - better watch out or he'll be out the door! LOL!

Lynn-sounds like good news all the way around!! That's great!! I'm on blood pressure meds too that I hope to get back off of one of these days.
I've been keeping busy the last couple of days. We're giving my MIL's buffet and china cabinet to 2 of David's nieces, so I need to get all my stuff out of them. The buffet has 6 drawers and two doors with 2 shelves inside, and I had that thing crammed clear full. I don't know how I got it all in there!! So now I'm trying to find a new spot for everything. What a mess!!

Mom came home Saturday, doing much better, much to the relief of 2 daughters who were starting to get frazzled! I went to the doctors today for a check-up, and although she wouldn't take me off the blood pressure meds (think pouty lip) she was very pleased with the weight loss/maintaining. When I said I'd like to lose another 10 pounds, she said that was okay, just not to go too far.

Glad to hear your mom is gradually getting better!! She is really lucky to have you and Kris to help her out. I'll see if I can find some good lactose intolerant recipes to send your way.

Mom is slowly getting better - apparently when she was in the hospital before they didn't get all the infection from the colitis and as soon as she went home it started to flare up again. So this time they have her on more meds and she's gradually feeling better. Hoping to bring her home Saturday or Sunday. It helps that Kris and I can take turns going down, but then whoever is left has to run the office by themselves. Will be glad when she's home, but now we're looking for lactose intolerance recipes to stock her fridge up with. She hates to cook anymore, just likes to microwave her meals. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!

sorry to hear about your mom's problems...everyone in hospital needs to have a patient advocate with them...it's the only way to try and make things a little better and safer for the patient.

take care

OMG Lynn!! That is ridiculous having to wait that long to get your mom into a room!! We had to wait 3 hours one time to get my aunt admitted and I thought that was way too long. Hope they figure out what her problem is soon. You're both in my thoughts and prayers. emoticon

I've been busy working and going to the hospital to be with Mom. We took her to the ER Saturday afternoon at 4 PM - she didn't get in a room until 11:30 PM - let me tell you, Halloween night in the ER is a real trick! They are still trying to figure out what is wrong with her, and since the hospital is understaffed, my sister and I try to take turns being there as much as possible to help her. So if I seem to be missing in action that's why. I will try to get on every day - I come home and generally conk out in front of the tv - good thing I exercise first thing in the morning!
