Popping in to say good night. Hope you ladies have had a good day. Mine was quiet which I was glad for. My older GS has caught a cold so now we must nebulize and hopefully it will not settle in his lungs. Ugh! He woke me at 5 this morning to tell me he could not breathe. So we nebulized at 5 am and then set up the times for the rest of the day.

Made Chili mac for dinner as the chicken had not completely thawed out. Helped GS with his science project due tomorrow.

Sandra yes I feel better today not as tired.

Darlene I did get a little more sleep last night. Thanks for prayers for Mom. Yes everytime she is sick I get really concerned. She will be 81 this year. Hopefully doing the exercises at home will help with the PT. I see you were able to finish your laundry. I got the last of my laundry done today. Your weather is like ours it was not to bad yesterday but today it was cold, cloudy, and drizzle all day. Tomorrow is to be sunny and warm.. and Weds we are to be 60 degrees.. It is crazy!!!
Well whatever is wrong with this laptop I could not use my sticky notes tonight.

I am going to sign off and go to bed. Gotta be up early to get kids off to school.
Hope you both have a good night. Have sweet dreams.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Dottie, I understand how you feel. Hope you are able to get to bed early and have a good night's rest. I am continuing to pray for your mom. Hope she is feeling better soon. I can understand how hard it is for you when you're not nearby so you can help. Hope things improve soon.

Hello, again, Sandra. Hope you're doing well. Hope your DH is doing well with his physio.

I'm trying to do my physio exercises at home so they won't be so hard when I go next week. The one exercise still hurts a lot. Sometimes my arm is sore for days afterwards. Oh well, at least I'm improving and hopefully I will be able to do more things at home.

Managed to get all my laundry done today and got rid of all my recycling. Looking forward to church tomorrow. Hope it isn't too slippery, as I have to take the regular transit bus as our church bus is still out of commission. I was told it should be back in service by next week. At least I will get a ride home with a friend. She needs to go to a store near where I live before she goes home from church, so she can drop me off afterwards. She need to be home before her DH goes to work in the afternoon, as he uses the car.

Weather is pretty crazy here right now. One day it is warm, the next day it is cold. It is still pretty humid though. A lot of people are still getting the flu.

Hope you ladies have a good night's rest. I'll try to drop by tomorrow evening.

Darlene

Hello ladies. For some reason I am super tired tonight. Think I may make it an early night. I went thru papers in the basement and did a little shredding. Talked to my Mom she still is not doing to good. After she started getting better from the cold and sinus stuff.. she started getting the pains in her leg again and also her bowel started acting up. So now she is having to use the walker again as she has been unsteady on her feet. They also got several inches of snow. She has had to miss the past 3 Sundays at church and will miss again tomorrow. I really hate being so far away. Wish I could just pack up and walk away from this place. Oh well..

Darlene glad to hear that PT is starting to get better. I have problems sometimes with lifting my arm over my head and I have not had surgery.. so I can only imagine how hard that is for you especially after having your arm immobile in the sling for so long. Made Chili for supper tonight. It was requested. Looks like we have some fair weather till about Thurs. then we are to turn colder and maybe by next Sat. have some snow. I sure don't want any.

Well I think I am going to get my shower and get my jammies on and go to bed.

Hope you have a good nights rest and sweet dreams. Hugs Miss using my emoticons..

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Yes, Sandra, I agree it is fun to see where we come from. My aunt in Saskatchewan has been very good about providing a lot of information on my mother's side of the family. My cousin gave me some information on that as well. However, they don't seem to know anything about my father. The only way I can get that info is try to get in contact with my brother and sisters. The $1000 is for DNA testing for all 4 of us, so I don't think it is too bad, but I don't think I should have to pay it all. I am going to contact them and see if they would be willing to pitch in and pay for the testing. I do want them to know I'm not just trying to take something that belongs to them. I don't want any money or anything my parents left, I would just like to get to meet my siblings and find out more about my father.

My aunt has been putting together a family tree of my mother's side of the family. She is having it re-done again, and she has added me and all my family to it. I think once she met me she saw that I am related. I look a lot like my mother. I have pictures of her when she was young, and I can remember when I was in school and I looked very much like her. My sons saw a picture of one of my sisters, and they were sure it was me. They said she even wears the same kind of clothes that I do. I am praying that I can follow up with this. My aunt said she wants to get together with me again this year. I'm looking forward to it.

Sorry you're having so much trouble with your knee. Try to rest it a little. Maybe you did overdo it one day. Glad you were able to spend some time with your sister today.

I went to physio this morning. Actually the exercises didn't seem quite so hard, except for the one where I have to lift my arm above my head. I am still having a lot of problems with that one. My therapist said to cut the number of times I do the exercises down to 5 and then maybe I can do two sets throughout the day. I find if I do 7 - 10 of the shoulder exercises I am too sore for the rest of the day to do another set. I am going to try to do the exercises in the morning and then put some ice on my shoulder for 10 minutes like they are doing at pt. Maybe that will help. Then I can do them again later in the afternoon or in the evening. If I can get at lest 2 sets a day done it should help. I need to get some laundry done tomorrow. I was supposed to do some today, but I was just too tired when I got home.

Dottie, I hope things are all right with you.

Take care ladies. I'll drop by again tomorrow. Have a good night.

Hello everyone. It has been a long day and not sure I have the patience tonight to deal with all these pop-ups and stuff.
Went to PF first thing after all the kids were off to school. Then went back out to Sprouts and got some Salmon and chicken breast. Got some more Ezekiel bread, strawberries and some frozen stuff.. They had on sale. I also found some natural stuff for my sinuses. You put 2-4 dropper fulls in a glass of water every 2-4 hours. I tried some at supper... about time to drink some more. It does not taste to bad. Anyway after Sprouts I went to Aldi's and got some milk and eggs a package of deli meat for the kids for lunches this weekend. Have 2 laods of laundry completely finished and another load in the dryer. Will finish up laundry tomorrow.

Sandra good to see you back. Glad that Jeff is doing good with PT. Sorry to hear that your knee has been bothering you again. Wow going to Cheyenne to get car fixed.. Hope it is not to costly..
I get my milk at Aldi's it is 1.99 a half gallon. I buy that size because they fit my freezer better and the kids can handle them easier. I know half gallons at HyVee are 2.59 for 2%

Darlene glad you had a good day and a good Bible study. Hope PT went well today. I am sure that before long you will be able to do those exercises at home.
Hope you are able to see your family in Saskatchewan soon.

Well ladies I am going to get ready for bed. Hope you have a good night.

Darlene, hope your Physio goes well today and it starts getting easier. I know how rough it is in the beginning. Boy do I!
My maiden name is Penner and there are some in Canada too. They were Mennonites and many came through Canada but looks like mine came from Germany or Holland, through Russia. But I can't go back farther than my great great grandfather who came over. Probably don't have records in Russia. I can understand why you would want to follow up on your birth family, but $1, 000 to prove you are related seems serious. I know we all trace back to Adam and Eve eventually but it's fun to see where we came from.

I am doing laundry today which means lots of stairs which are good for me but not sure how much to do now that my knee is so unhappy. I was doing so well and was trying to stay active but maybe I overdid it. It's hard not to when we feel so good. Going to the store with my twin who took the day off to get ready for her son's 18th birthday. May be the last one he has at home since he's going to college next year and he's her youngest. She has 3 great boys and I love them so much. Wish I could have given them cousins. Well, better not go there, I'm getting myself depressed. Which means it's time for breakfast. If I don't eat right away my mood gets so bad. My mom is diabetic and I'm sensitive to blood sugar issues. Time to get serious about weight and diet. I scared myself last night thinking about it. But that's what I need to get motivated. No more

Hello Lovely Ladies. It's good to hear from you. Hope you're doing well.

Glad you're back, Sandra. I can understand how busy you can get when you retire. Glad to hear Jeff is doing well with the pt. Glad things are healing well for him. Sorry to hear you're still having so much pain with your knee. Hope things improve for you soon. That geneology sounds interesting. I tried to trace my family one time, but I couldn't find anything on there. I know who my parents are and their siblings, and my grand parents, but I can't seem to find anything. There are so many Bretts on the site. They are all over the US and Canada. I know my father's parents came from Ireland, and my mother's parents came from Norway, but that's as much as I know. I was adopted when I was a baby, and I've been trying to find out more about my father. I have two sisters and a brother in my birth family, but they don't believe I am their sister. They want me to be tested to see if I am related. I checked into it and the cost is over $1,000. I was told all the siblings would have to be tested, as the parents are both gone now. I hope to follow up on that soon. I have met one of my cousins. His dad was my mom's brother. I have also met a SIL of my mother's. She is the only one left of that generation. She is now 83 years old. I'm hoping to get to see her again this year. Maybe I'll be able to make a trip to Saskatchewan. That way I can meet some of my other cousins. We'll see how things turn out.

Dottie, sounds like you got some pretty good deals at that new store. I wish I could buy produce at those prices. I pay $5 for two litres of milk. It is the lactose-free kind though. I know that it is more expensive than the regular milk. Our regular 2% milk is around 4.99 per gallon. I paid about $5 for some grape tomatoes a while ago. It was only a small container. I'm sure there wasn't a pound in there.

I had a pretty good day today. I spent a lot of time reading my bible and doing some cleaning. I had my small group bible study tonight. I always enjoy that one so much. Tomorrow it's back to physio for me. Hope it doesn't hurt so much this time. I'm trying to make sure I do the exercises each day between the physio as well. I'm supposed to do them 2 or 3 times a day, but I'm lucky if I can do them all once. I know things will improve over time.

Well I think I'll call it an early night. Have a good night's rest ladies. Talk to you soon.

Darlene

I can't believe how time gets away from me. I am busier now than when I worked! Jeff got the go ahead from the dr to begin muscle work at PT now instead of just the passive motion stuff. Still a slow process though. The dr said his brain also has to be retrained to work with the muscles since they were idle so long. He has pretty good range of motion but has a ways to go yet. And he is still on work restrictions-no lifting! Which is o.k. this time of year. The dr thinks it's healing well though, we are so relieved.

I'm having more knee pain than I was, on the sides and back of the knee. The PT suggested I start wrapping it again to push the fluid out. I still have so much swelling. Also told me to only exercise 5 days a week instead of 7.

Today I spent the morning doing housework and the afternoon working on my geneology program. Can only go back 4 generations on my dad's paternal side which is all the info my uncle gave me too. Don't think I can find anything else so I will look into my dad's maternal side and then do my mom's side and then Jeff's family. The most aggravating and interesting thing is that everyone on my dad's side named their kids Peter and Anna. So it gets confusing. Then they throw in the occasional Heinrich. Then I find other Peter and Annas that can't be my ancestors because the dates and locations don't match up. GRRR! Really? LOL. I spent 3 hrs with it today, it's addicting.

I am so jealous Dottie! I can't believe how cheap your groceries are!!! Walmart milk here is $3.75/gal! I get it at Safeway for $3.43 or on sale for $3.19. Sometimes it's $1.99. But nothing else is ever cheap. I can't even find Ezekiel bread here. I haven't tried the health food store though. You need to stay with that store, sounds like it's worth the drive.

Speaking of drive, we will have to take our car to Cheyenne for a check up. It's making awful noises. After we bought it, the local dealer dropped their Nissan agreement so now we have to go to Wyoming to have it serviced. GRRR! So if they have to keep it we will have to rent a car to come home. Probably they will just have to order parts and have us bring it back but I worry about driving out of town in case something happens. But I do look forward to the mall and Chick fil et which we don't have. We still have snow on the ground but it's melting. The side streets are still bad. Supposed to be nice all weekend. Starting to see our grass again and we got some more Christmas lights down but have two trees and tons of cords still stuck in the ice.

Well, I'm tired so will say goodnight. Will try to get back sooner than last time. I love chatting wtih you both.

Good Afternoon still having problems with getting on spark.. So I am going to write this about my morning save it then try spark again..
I went over to Liberty to a new store called Sprouts.. It is really neat... I bought Roma tomatoes for 98 cents a pound. Red seedless grapes were 99 cents a pound.. had grape tomatoes for a dollar for the 16 oz size container. Had pineapples for a dollar.. did not get one of those though.. Bought green leaf and red leaf lettuce. They had organic beets for 1.99 and these beets were not the little dinky size they have been having at Hyvee lately. Also got some golden beets. Never seen those before. Got some kiwi, avocados, sunflower seeds, almonds, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries.. they were on special for 2.99 a pound. Got some coconut water to try. They had some Ezekiel bread for 3.49 Also there brand of bread was on sale for one dollar.. Got a couple loaves of it. Liked the ingredients.. I had a coupon for some free organic oatmeal so got some of that. Looked at the vitamins and oils etc. Saw something that caught my eye for sinus issues will have to get some another time and try it. I did go to Hyvee and get some snacks for GS for school as he said he was tired of the Penquins.. They had some goldfish on sale and cheez-its. Also grabbed a pizza for dinner. They had green beans on sale again so I got 6 cans. They were 38 cents a can. Also got 10 lbs of potatoes for 1.98. (they keep good in the garage).
Now I am home catching my breath. Today is early release from school so everyone gets home about 30 minutes earlier than usual.. The two oldest ones will be home soon. I did not make it to PF the last 2 days. Yesterday would not have been a good day to go because my knee/leg were still hurting from Tues. Today I just ran out of time.. So will go in the morning. Time for a round on the treadmill and maybe the bike..

Darlene Glad you had a good day and that PT went well. I am sure that as you keep going it will get better. I can imagine lifting your arm up would be the hardest since you have had to keep it pretty much stationary this whole time. I know my shoulder gives me trouble a lot of times but the doc at the VA thinks it is just Arthritis or Burrsitis.. Course she has never had it xrayed so who knows for sure. I know I do have a lot of arthritis everywhere else. lol.. I have given all the itis family evictions notices but they are still hanging around.. :) :)
Had a fair nights sleep. Woke about 2 hours after going to bed to go to bathroom then went back to sleep and dreamed some wacky dream. Had to change positions a lot as my leg is still bothering me.
I keep you in my prayers.

Would like to add some emoticons but everytime I try it kicks me out. SO sending hugs.

Hope you have a wonderful evening.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Hi Dottie. Sorry to hear you are having so many problems with your computers. Hope you are able to get at least one of them up and running properly. Hope you're able to get to that new store tomorrow to see what it has.

I had a good day today. My pt went well, although it is very painful. I only did 30 minutes of exercise today, and I had ice on my shoulder twice because of the pain. I can see why she says it is going to take a while. I go back again Friday. I am supposed to be doing these exercises 3 times a day. A couple of them aren't too bad, but the one where I raise my arm above my head is very painful. I am supposed to be doing 10 of those. I was only able to do 7 today. That is the worst one. Hopefully once I do it for a while it will stop hurting so much.

Hope you have a good night's sleep. I am tired tonight as well. I hope I can get some rest. I don't know why I'm having so much trouble staying asleep. I fall asleep okay, but I always end up either dreaming and waking up, or just waking up early to use the washroom and then I can't fall back asleep. Hopefully that will improve soon.

Talk to you tomorrow.

Darlene

Good evening.. I have been having problems big time with my computers. The one downstairs is not completely cleaned up and my laptop is weird.. I keep running scans and when I get something popping up I put it in quarentine... I don't have 80.00 to take to Office Depot to have this thing cleaned up.. So I just keep trying to clean it up. Frustrating to say the least. Took me three tries tonight to get on Spark.

Darlene hope your day has been a good one. How did your PT go today. Hopefully you did not hurt as bad as the first time. I did not get to the store today. Was at the dealership for an hour and a half. So I will go tomorrow. A new store opened up on the highway to Liberty. It is called Sprouts. Opened today and I want to check it out. SO may do that tomorrow morning before going to HyVee.

Well think I will get off here before this thing tells me that there is a virus and won't let me do anything until I shut down and restart.
Have a good night and hope you are able to get a good nights rest with pleasant dreams.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Hello Ladies. Hope you had a good day.

I understand about strange dreams, Dottie. I have been dealing with some of those as well. I am not even sure what they are about. I just know that when I wake up and then try to get back to sleep, I don't want to dream that dream again. I am still not sleeping well. It always makes me so tired throughout the day. I went to the store today with the shuttle and bought a few things. They had a good sale on. Some of the items were 10 for $10.00. You don't have to buy 10, but they are only $1 each. Picked up some sugar-free Jello. I have been thinking about making that for a while. I know the regular Jello has too much sugar in it. Got 10 packs of Lipton Side Kicks for $10 as well. I had some for supper tonight with a pork chop.

Need to get up early tomorrow, as I have pt at 10:00 am. I told my home care worker not to come, as I would have to leave before she normally gets there. I had a call from the home care office today, they said that they were willing to let me have the home care for a few more weeks while I go through some physio. They said they would call me in 2 or 3 weeks and see how things are going.
I am glad about that. I know the last time I went to physio my arm was sore when I got home, even though I didn't think I worked it that hard. The physiotherapist said she would massage the muscles in my shoulder tomorrow to help it feel better. She used ice on my shoulder the last time I went for physio. Hopefully I'll be able to use my arm more soon. Every time my friends are around they are giving me heck telling me not to do anything with my arm. I have a tendency to forget sometimes and try to lift something and I find out how much it hurts. It takes twice as long to do my dishes. I am going to look for an electric can opener this week.

Well, I think I will go and try to get some sleep. Hope you have a good night's rest. Will try to stop by again tomorrow.

Darlene

Morning.. Decided to jump in here first thing. My night was ok. I kept waking up and had a few wacky dreams. So that when the alarm went off this morning I definitely did not want to get up. It is back to school for the kids. I will go to PF and do the 30 minute circuit than go over to HyVee and get some birthday and Sympathy cards. Get 50 cents on fuel savers if spend 10 dollars. Depending on the cost that is at least 3 cards. I had just used 4 of my sympathy cards for my brother, sil and each of their girls. My sil's dad passed away this past Friday. So a restock on cards is in order. Plus my best friend in Hanover has a birthday coming up in a couple weeks.

Then it will be home to have some lunch. Probably a salad and a chicken sandwich.
Need to figure out something for supper. Boys just said spaghetti. SO I guess that is what it will be tonight.

Darlene glad you had a good day at church. Oh my goodness sounds like the church bus will be out of commission for awhile. Been having weird dreams lately. Last night Tom and I were traveling around. Not sure where? The last part of the dream we were back here in Kansas City and staying with some old friends we had. It was really strange. Seem to be a little disconnected.. I know that just before the alarm went off I was trying to decide if we had a enough dirty laundry to do a load of clothes in our friends washer. I can relate to the memories.. mine overtake me sometimes also. Thursday will be 18 months. Hard to believe that much time has gone by already. It is supposed to be kinda nice this week. I would like to get out to his grave. Glad that you were able to get your small group started again.

Better get off here now and make sure kids are getting ready for school. Everyday I have to remind them of what they need to do.

Have a good day..

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well. Dottie, sounds like you got some good deals on the clothing for the GC. Sometimes we just need to take it easy and get some rest. Hope you have a good night's sleep tonight.

I had a lovely day at church yesterday. I actually took the church bus to church. It got me there on time, but the door is still not fixed. The poor driver had to keep getting up to open and close the door manually. Finally after church when he was taking us home, the doors popped open after he made a left hand turn. He had to stop and close them again. He took the bus back to the impound lot where we park at the church and he used his van to give another gentleman and I a ride home. The bus is going in to be repaired on Tuesday. Not sure if it will be available for next weekend or not. It may be a while before it is fixed.

I didn't do too much today either. I haven't been sleeping well, as memories of my DH are getting to me. Next month is my birthday as well as two of my GD;s. My DH's birthday was on March 1. He and I always celebrated our birthdays together by going out for dinner. I am hoping to get to go and visit his grave again very soon.

I started up my small group bible study again today. I hadn't started it up in the fall because I was waiting for surgery, and then I didn't want to start when I was having so much pain with my shoulder. We started up again tonight. We will have another lady joining us next month after she returns from a holiday in the Philippines.

Well, I think I will try to get to bed early tonight as well. I am very tired for some reason. Hopefully I will sleep better tonight. I'll drop by again tomorrow.

Hello Ladies.. Well here it is almost bedtime again. My day was a little long. Kids were home from school. Went to the thrift store in Liberty. Clothing was 50% off and oldest GS needed some dress pants and shirts for church. He also needed some jeans for school he said he has some that are getting short on him. SO for $18.00 I got him 2 pr dress pants 2 shirts and 2 pr of jeans. Then we went to Culvers and I let them use some of their money to get themselves some frozen custard.
Then we came home and oldest GS had to work on his science project that is due next Monday. He got the questions and answers wrote to put on the cardboard. Now he needs to get a few more wires from the teacher so we can do all the circuit stuff.
Made Pork chops mashed potatoes and succotash for supper tonight. My older GD came over tonight after work and ate with us. Then we visited awhile.
I am tired tonight and did not really do a lot today. Maybe that is why I am tired. Tomorrow I need to go to PF and do my 30 minute circuit.

Darlene hope you had a good weekend and a good day today. Hope you got some rest and took it easy

Sandra hope all is well.. Been missing you.

Think I will say good night and hope y'all get a good nights sleep and have some pleasant dreams.

Will try to get here tomorrow.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Hello Ladies. Dottie it sounds like a super busy day for you. No wonder you were tired. Sorry to hear your son couldn't make it this weekend. I understand how hard it is for you to go through Tom's things. Hope you are able to do what you need to next weekend.

Thanks for your prayers for my friends. They are still in a lot of pain after the accident. Thank goodness the kids seem to be okay. My friend told me today that she is not sure if she had insurance on the car. Autopac told her they had sent her a letter in August, and she didn't reply, and they had sent her another letter in September, but she didn't reply then either. She said she never got either letter. She had recently moved. She did change her address with Canada Post, but for some reason the letters weren't delivered. They told her that it would be up to the investigator as to whether or not she will have coverage. I am praying things work out for her.

Believe it or not, I found my hat. I had taken a box out of my coat closet that had several scarves, etc., in it. That is where I found a pair of gloves I didn't know I had. When I put the box back on the shelf I put it on top of my hat. I checked today before I went out, and I found it. I thought I was going to have to buy another hat. I managed to return my gloves with no problem. I had to go and get a haircut today. My hair was just getting so thick and bushy that I couldn't do anything with it. It is so good to have nice short hair again.

It was a lovely day here today. It was around 30 degrees F. That is the mildest it has been for a long time. It is supposed to get colder again next week. Oh well, it was nice to have a little reprieve from the cold weather.

I will stop by again tomorrow. Hope you have a good night's rest. Hope Sandra is doing okay.

Good Afternoon.. I have been busy for sure today. Have laundry going.. Was outside raking leaves and mowing them.. Then washed my van. It was soooo dirty. Course it is a white van on top of it all.. Now it is nice and clean on the outside. Did the windows on the inside. Need to hook up the shop van and clean the inside but it is windy today and the wind was cold. We are to get to 54 but not so sure that will happen since it is so cloudy and windy.

I am tuckered out and need to get some lunch. Or at least a little snak to tide me over till supper. I only ate toast for breakfast this morning. I am on my 2nd 32 oz cup of water. Actually about half way through with it. Think I will go upstairs and sit in my recliner and read a book now. Almost to the end of the one I started earlier this week.

Darlene glad that you will be able to return the gloves that don't fit right. Glad you found your other ones. Oh no but now you have lost your hat. Hopefully you have found it. I have already lost my mind and seems like no one has seen it. lol
WooHoo on having your friend help you with getting your tree down and then doing your floors for you.. Just awesome.

Talked to my oldest son last night and he said he would not be over today because the guy that was scheduled to be on call had a family emergency. So my son being the supervisor had to take the on call duties. I was pretty down last night because I so want this basement done. I think I may try again this weekend to do some packing in the workshop. I put some of Tom's dress pants in a bag today for the Vets pickup.. That should be happening soon. Still have his shirts in the back of the closet. Need to get them down also. Clothes still in the chest of drawers I will leave for now. Those are the things he wore most of the time.

Sorry to hear about your friends. Will keep them in prayer.

I am going to get me something to eat. The dryer is almost done and the washer is on the rinse.

Hope you ladies have a good afternoon.

Glad you are able to get your other computer working so you don't have all those pop ups. Hope you are able to find everything you need to get it running properly. Glad to hear you're still doing well at PF. So happy to hear your headache has improved. Hope it goes away completely for you. It is good that you are able to get some yard work done when the kids are off on their long weekend. Glad the weather is mild for you. We are having some milder weather here too. I'm enjoying it. I hope to get out to Wal Mart tomorrow to return the gloves I bought. I found one pair of the gloves I had lost, and I found another pair that I didn't know I had, so there is no need for these gloves. Especially since they are so hard to get on with my arthritis. Believe it it not, I misplaced my hat today. It seems I can't go a day without losing something. I'm going to be losing my mind pretty soon (lol).

I was so blessed to day because my friend Shirley, who lives upstairs in my block, came down to help me get my tree put away. She helped me do my laundry as well. Not only that, but before she went back to her suite she swept and washed my floors for me, and brought me two home-made frozen dinners. She has been such a blessing to me.

I got some bad news about a couple of friends, though. A friend from my small group bible study has been in the hospital since before Christmas. She had internal bleeding and they couldn't find out what was causing it. They finally found it between her small and large intestine. They removed 7 inches of her small intestine and sent it away for testing. Yesterday her doctor told her that they had found cancer. They think they got it all, but now she has to make an appointment with an oncologist to see what her next move will be. She and her family are devastated.

Also, today I got a call from a friend to tell me that another friend, her daughter and her two grandchildren had been in a car accident this afternoon. She said the two little ones seem to be okay, but my friend and her daughter are in a lot of pain with whip lash. They won't go to the hospital, as they feel they will have to wait too long to see a doctor. They are hoping to be able to get in to see a chiropractor. I'm not sure if they will be able to find one open on the weekend. My friend thinks her car will be written off by Auto Pac.

Boy, when I think of all the things going on with others, I am so lucky I just have a sore shoulder. My troubles seem so trivial compared to what others are going through.

Sandra, hope things are all right with you.

Talk to you tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Good afternoon. emoticon Need to get me some lunch emoticon then get outside and do some yard work. I am downstairs on the computer. Not having the issues with Spark here.. as on laptop. But I have not totally finished working on this computer yet either. Just need to set a few things back up since I took it back to the very beginning. I also need to find my printer cd so I can reload the printer down here. emoticon
Went to PF and did the 30 minute circuit. Don't think I remembered all the leg things on the steps but did get all the machines okay. I also was on the treadmill at the start of everything to warm up a bit before doing the circuit. emoticon

Darlene Yes the headache has improved. emoticon It is still there a little bit but not pounding as it was the other day. I am going to take some Tylenol when I get lunch here in a little bit as I need to get some yard work done. Going to set the kids to work this weekend out there also. They have off Monday so it will be a working weekend.. emoticon emoticon
Glad you made it to PT and that you were able to get some light exercises to do. Hopefully before long you will be doing things again. emoticon Hope that the health care office will work with you for a few more weeks. Just be careful. We are to have 4 or 5 days of pretty nice weather emoticon and then it is to start getting cold again.. But the break in the weather is nice. Hopefully it won't mess with the kids asthma to much.

Sandra missing you.. emoticon Hope all is well.

Have a great afternoon. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello Ladies.

Glad you had a good rest last night, Dottie. Hope your headache has improved. I took a Tylenol Synus Night Time last night, and I had a good sleep as well. It also helped my headache.
Glad you're enjoying your time at PF. Hope you are able to get your computer checked out to see what is causing all those crazy pop up ads. I get a few of them, but not too many.

I did make it to my pt today. The therapist gave me a list of exercises I can do. They are very light exercises. She said to hold them until I feel a pull, not pain. I tried them while I was with her, and I was surprised to find that my shoulder was sore afterwards. I didn't do too much, but it still hurt.
She told me she would massage my neck and my shoulder muscle next time I come in, as they are very stiff. That may be one of the reasons I am having headaches. She asked me if I had headaches or a sore neck. I do have both. Hopefully I will be able to get to where I can use my arm again soon. The therapist told me I still can't do anything with my left arm. I can vacuum, but I can only use my right arm. I can't sweep. I am not supposed to lift ANYTHING with that arm, even very light bags. I can't even lift the dishes onto the dish rack after I've washed them. She said I have to be very careful that I don't tear that the suture open.

I told her that I didn't really understand what was done, and she explained the surgery to me and told me why I have to be very careful not to overdo use of the arm. I contacted the health care office and asked if I can have the health care for a few more weeks until I see how my pt is going. Hopefully they will allow this.

Sandra, hope you're doing well.

Take care ladies. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Good Morning.. Thought I would try to get a quick message in. Went to bed early last night. Was wore out and had a headache. Think it is sinus. Will take a sinus pill after breakfast and see if it helps.. I did get to PF again yesterday. Supposed to go again today but may just wait till tomorrow when I go to do the 30 minute circuit.

Trying to work around all these pop ads that have spread all over the page.. Don't know why they are showing up on Spark like this. I don't get them on FB. I just cant open any of the videos I get sent as I get some pretty goofy popups then. This started a few days ago. Guess I will have to call office depot and see how much they charge to do a virus sweep.. Even though my virus program doesn't find anything..

Darlene hope your feeling better today and that you can make it for the PT today. I can relate to having a lot do.. I try to do a few things every day but don't seem to get much done.

Sandra hope all is going well with you.

Ladies have a good day.

Hello Ladies. Hope you had a good day. Dottie, sorry you are having so many problems with your computer. Hope you can get it working properly.

I am still dealing with sinus headaches. I was supposed to go for pt today, but I go a call at 8:30 this morning telling me the lady who was going to do pt with me didn't come in to work. They re-scheduled until next Thursday. However, about an hour later, I got another call asking me to come in tomorrow at 11:00 A.M. I am going to go as soon as my home care worker comes. I hope I can make it there before 11:00. I can get the shuttle up to the corner (which is about a 15 minute walk) and then I can get a bus just across the street. If I don't have to wait too long for the bus I should be able to make it on time. I'll let you know how things go. Sandra, hope you're having a good day.
Did you manage to get your spinning going?

I had the same problem with my knitting on Monday. I thought I would start on an infinity scarf for myself, as my friend loaned me her scarf until I can make my own. I worked on it almost all day, and I kept having to tear out out because the yarn kept getting all tangled. It took me forever to get the yarn straightened out enough to do anything. By that time I was so tired and frustrated that I just put it away. Hopefully I will get it out and get back to doing it soon. I have so many other things I need to do first, that I'm beginning to feel like I have a ton of weight on my shoulders. Hopefully things will improve soon. I had a call from the lady who cleaned my apartment last month, asking me if I wanted her to come this month. I'm thinking about it, but I need to wait until I get paid at the end of the month. I don't want to run myself short. I don't know if I can deal with her go go go attitude. She did do a good job, but I was exhausted by the time she left, and I didn't do that much. I could use some help with the cleaning, though. I'll think about it and pray about it and decide in a few days.

Hope you ladies have a good night's rest. Talk to you soon.

Just a quick pop in..Still getting all kinds of popups all over the screen when I get on Spark. Cant even see the page sometimes.


Hope you ladies have had a good day. I did get to PF.. walked on the treadmill and rode the bike each a half hour.
Darlene hope you are feeling better today.

Well before I get the pop up telling me there is something wrong I will say goodnight..

Will try again tomorrow.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well. Dottie, I'm glad to hear your mom is getting better.
Sorry to hear about your computer problems. I know what that's like. Glad you were able to do the 30-minute circuit at PF. I'm sure you will do okay when you have to do it alone. There seems to be an awful lot of cars being recalled recently. Glad you don't have to pay for the work to be done.
Sandra hope things are going well for you. I can understand why you have cabin fever. I get like that once in a while when I don't get out for a while. Glad you are able to spend the weekends with your DH. When I joined the Library again after several years I found out I had some fines as well. They forgave my fines and gave me a new card. I did have to pay the fines for the books I had out this time though. I won't do that again.

I am still having problems with the headaches. I know it has something to do with sinus pressure. Yes, the weather does factor into it a lot. I have some Tylenol Sinus Night Time I am going to use tonight before I go to bed. See if that helps. Sinutab sometimes helps as well. I can't use any of the regular pain killers, such as Aspirin, Motrin, Ibiprofin, etc., as I break out in a rash. Tylenol seems to be the only thing I can use. The weather here is still pretty cold today. Tomorrow it is supposed to be warmer. It looks like it's going to be nice for the nest week or so. I am happy about that. I know we're going to get a lot more cold weather, but it is nice to get a break now and then.

I went and had lunch with my SIL today. She treated me. We had a nice visit and exchanged gifts. Then I went to Wal Mart and bought myself some new gloves and a few other things I needed. I'm hoping the gloves work out okay. They are a little hard to get on with my arthritis. Maybe once I've worn them a few times they will stretch out a little. If not I'll go out next week and get a different pair.

Well, I'll chat with you ladies tomorrow. I start my physio therapy tomorrow. I'll see how I feel when I get home. Talk to you soon.

Darlene

Good evening ladies.. Been trying to get here all day. My laptop is acting weird. I ran 3 different scans on it and can not find a problem. Yet I keep getting a bunch of wacky messages, popups all over the place and an ad that tells me my computer is infected and I need to call the technical number on the screen for help to remove it. Only problem is it will not close then I have to shut the computer completely down and start back up. SO it has been a trying day computer wise. I can't get to any of the articles or anything like that either. I get the same thing when I try to view stuff on FB. Any way today I started dusted and cleaning the living room. Also cut up some mini peppers for the freezer so they would not go bad. Then I made a salad for lunch and finished the veggie part of the stew. GD wanted me to save her the beef chunks.
After lunch I went to PF and did the class on the 30 minute circuit.. I made it thru. Yeah.. Now tomorrow and Thurs I do the treadmill and the bike.. Then Friday I do the circuit again this time by myself. That could be interesting.. They have a green light red light setup. Tonight I am tired and ready to go to bed.. Oh yeah I got a card today from Chrysler.. Seems my Dodge could have a defective rear quarter vent window switch. It could overheat and cause it to catch fire without warning.. Nice huh!!! So now I gotta call the dealership and set up a time to get it fixed. Luckily it will be no cost to me other than time.

Darlene sorry you did not get to go to your Bible study yesterday. Hope you are feeling better today. Today is supposed to be our last cold day for a few days. Tomorrow we are to warm up to 34 and then in the 50's Sat and Sun.. Yes it will be nice. But gotta remember it is only January. Our weather guy said we could be in for some cold yucky stuff the end of the month. So will enjoy the warm up while we have it. My furnace will get a rest too. Did you get to the library today? Hope you did not freeze. I had to buy some new gloves but because the ones I had developed holes in the thumbs.. I take the kids to the library during the summer but I tell them to use the school library during school year. It is just to hetic to get to the library in the fall and winter.

Sandra Oh my. Wonder if you called they could tell you if you owe anything or not. I would think after awhile it would be written off. I have not done any strength training yet. Maybe a little later in my plan. Did you get to do any spinning today? I have such trouble with my hands that I barely keep up with the mending. Glad that you get to spend weekends together with Jeff. I guess during the week it would be lonely since you are used to having the little ones there with you. I use tylenol and Ibuprofen. I had toast and carrot juice for breakfast. Yes the weather guy said the higher the pressure the more pain one can experience in their joints.

Ladies Mom is starting to feel better. Thanks for your prayers.
Hope you have a good evening. It is time I shut down and got ready for bed. Hope I can get back here tomorrow without to much trouble.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

LOL! I have fines at the library too from many years ago! I forgot to take some children's books back and I just dropped them in the night deposit and haven't been back. Jeff calls me a criminal and laughs at me. But I got a Kindle after that and never went to the library. Plus I was mad at myself for forgetting and having a fine so I just avoided the place. Wonder how long they will be on my record? I haven't even seen the remodel they did a few years back, keep forgetting to go see but I just don't use the library anymore.

I am so excited about your fitness membership Dottie and a little jealous. I hope the circuit routine goes well. Do you do any strength training? I used to belong to a local fitness place and I loved it! That was before my body fell apart. They had some great weight machines and I got strong. I did my chair video yesterday and it felt good, mostly stretching and loosening joints but didn't do much leg work so my knee didn't get worked and it was stiff during the night. My therapist was always telling me to walk so today I am going to drive to the mall and walk there. Plus it helps by getting me out of the house. Yesterday I had to put the spinning aside and I will try it again today. Partly I just get restless and cabin fever. Jeff was gone from 7-5 and then worked in the basement till 6 so I was alone all day and not really liking it. I love weekends when he is home with me.
Darlene, Tylenol doesn't work for me either. I like Exedrin extra strength for headaches. It has a little caffeine in it which the doctor told us helps expand or constrict the blood vessels, I can't remember which, but it helps the medicine work better. could it be weather related? I am watching the air pressure and my pain to see if it correlates and I believe it does. It's also been scientifically documented. Lowering air pressure causes the pressure inside our joints to expand causing more pain. Maybe you already know that.
Well, I am getting hungry but don't want any of my usual breakfast foods so I think I will scrounge up something else.
Dottie, your mom is still sick? I too am praying she will be better soon.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Dottie, glad to hear you managed to get out to Planet Fitness. Sounds like a good workout to start. Your fitness plan sounds like a good idea. Hope you are able to do the 30-minute circuit. Continuing to pray that your mom gets better.

Sandra, hope you had a good day. Sorry to hear the spinning didn't go well. Hope you'll be able to get it working properly tomorrow.

I didn't get to bible study today. I have had a headache all day. It doesn't seem to help if I take Tylenol or not. It does fade a little, but it is still there. I just didn't feel like going out and taking a bus this evening. It is still pretty cold. It's about -31 F with the wind chills. It is supposed to warm up tomorrow. We are supposed to get a little snow as well. I don't know how long the warmer weather will last, but I'll be happy and enjoy it. I am going out tomorrow to meet my SIL for lunch. We were supposed to get together last week, but it was too cold. I need to go to Wal Mart afterwards and buy myself some gloves. Believe it or not I have either lost or misplaced two pairs of gloves in the past week. Hopefully it won't be too cold in the morning so I won't freeze my hands when I'm waiting for the bus. I also need to drop off my library books. I didn't get to the library on Saturday. Now I'm going to have to pay some fines. Hopefully I can do that on my way to lunch. I can take one bus to the library and then take another bus downtown from there. The bus stop is right in front of the library, so I don't have to walk too far. I'll go back another day to pay my fines and maybe get some more books.

Well, I'll try to drop by again tomorrow. Have a good night.

Darlene

Good Afternoon Ladies.

Went to Planet Fitness this morning and did 33 minutes on the treadmill. Did a little over a mile at 1% incline and 2mph.. Figured I should start slow since it has been awhile. Anyway was debating weather to sign up for a design your own workout when the lady that was doing some extra sessions to help out said that if I wanted to she could do it right then as her other appt. had not showed up. So I said okay. So tomorrow I will go in and learn the 30 minute circuit.. (it is like curves) I will do that 2 days a week then the other 3 days I will do the treadmill and bike equal time on each for at least 20 minutes no more than an hour. Then I am to do stretches. Will see tomorrow if I can do the circuit. If not I will just ask to do something else. I know when I tried Curves many years ago I was not able to keep up .. I was impressed by the people there. A lot better reception than the one in PA. Went to Aldi's after that and got Milk and bread and some more grapes. A few other fresh veggies too. Still working on this container of pictures it is a slow process. Made barbequed pork ribs tonight fries and hominy for supper.

Darlene Glad that you also had a good service. Sounds like a good series. Our Pastor had done a long series before Christmas. As for journaling not sure the only thing I have journaled is my day and my feelings and thoughts (sometimes) since Tom's death. Could be a learning tool for you. My Mom still has her tree up also. She has been sick and not able to take it down. Hope that you are not getting a bug again. When I talked to Mom on Saturday she said she was sick of being sick.. Hope you have a good Bible Study today.

Sandra Glad to hear you are warming up by Thurs. also. Maybe that means Darlene will be warming also since they said this last cold front came from her area. Glad you were able to get some things today. I did not get a lot done. But will have to work on a better schedule to start getting things done around here. I agree I could have taken a nap today. Thats why I made myself go to Planet Fitness

Ladies have a great evening.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

how are you feeling today Darlene? Sure hope you aren't getting sick again. This year's bugs are different than the flu shots cover so we are all sitting ducks for whatever comes along.
Yes, it's supposed to warm up here by Thrs. Looks like temps in the 40s which will be great. We got another inch of snow last night. Just seems like we will have white stuff till spring. It will be nice to see the sun again too.
Got a few things done today but not having much luck with the spinning. Put it away till tomorrow. Going to read or knit this afternoon. These are good days for napping/

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well. I enjoyed our church service this week as well. We are starting a 16-week series on Mark. We are supposed to read one chapter a week, but we are to read it 3 times during the week, and then we are to journal as to what God spoke to us about as we read. I have never journalled before, so not sure how that is going to go. The church even got journals for each of us. They said they paid $2.03 for each of them and asked everyone for a small donation so that they could have the journals paid for.

I was supposed to take my tree down today after I came home from church, but friends dropped by with some potatoes and onions from the food bank. They had extras left over. My friend upstairs was quite happy with that, as she makes food for the Meals Ministry in the church. She makes a lot of perogies and Shepherd's Pie, so she uses a lot of potatoes and onions. There isn't always food left over, but if there is the people working at the food bank try pass the extra food on to those who might need it. I have been blessed several times. After they left I sat down to read the paper and have lunch, and then for some reason I just got very tired. I think I may be coming down with something again. I have had a headache for a few days now, and I am aching all over. I hope I don't get that flu bug back again. There has been so much going around, that it's hard not to catch something from someone in your travels. If I start to feel worse I am going to make an appointment with my doctor.

Well, ladies, hope you have a good night's rest. I am looking forward to our Ladies' Bible Study that starts up again tomorrow evening. Hope you have a good night's rest.

Darlene


Thanks for the suggestions on computers. I have always been interested in the Dell computers, but there is no place local that sells them. You have to order them on-line. I do have a credit card, but I have a credit limit on it, as I don't want to over-spend. I don't know if the company uses Pay Pall or not. I will check into them. My son sent me some info on lap tops as well. I haven't checked out what he sent as yet. I need to get a wireless mouse to use with the computer. I can't seem to work the computer properly otherwise. A touch screen would be okay as well.

Hello Ladies.. Well it has been a quiet day for the most part. We went to Church this morning. Message was on Kingdom Advancing Prayer. Very good message. I want to listen to it again later this week. Had left overs for dinner today. Then kids had some strawberries and a little ice cream for dessert.
Did watch the 2 football games. Glad that Dallas and Denver both lost. Did the last 2 loads of laundry.

Sandra glad that you were able to get your laundry done and that it is getting easier to do the stairs. Will you be warming up this week? We are to warm up here starting Thurs/Fri time frame. Will be nice. I want to change the some of the flags I have out front but it has been to cold to go out and do that.
Want to take down the Christmas flags and put up some of my winter flags.
I buy 1/2 gallons at Aldi's and it is usually 1.97 a half. The kids do better with that size and they fit on my freezer door better. Yes the kids enjoyed the strawberries. Gave them some tonight along with a small dish of chocolate ice cream. I know there are a few things that I buy now that if I was by myself I would not buy. But I get things for the kids. I limit how much and what snacks they get. Also they get very little candy.. In fact they did not have any of their M&M's all week and no one even asked me for them this weekend. WooHoo on weight loss.

Darlene yes I think I will enjoy Planet Fitness. I will have to cancel in May though since the kids will be out of school the 22nd. And I would not be able to go while they are out of school. Plus I am praying that we will have the house sold and be moving in June. I tried to just pay for 6 months up front but they don't do that. I have their cheap plan.. 10 dollars a month and no contract.. can stop anytime. They have one other one that is 20 dollars a month and you can use the tanning beds, massage chairs and go to any Planet Fitness in the country.. But that is ok.. I don't need the tanning beds and if I get back to PA this summer I will probably check out Golds Gym again. I liked it there better.
Sorry your computer has been acting up. I see Sandra said about Dell. Tom always liked the HP ones. He did not like the Epson brand.. Don't remember him saying to much about Dell. Hopefully your sons will be able to find you a good deal. The WiFi thru your cable sounds like a great deal. SO many times we go places and there is no WiFi available or you can't connect for one reason or another. I paid 750 dollars for my HP.. but that price also included a 3 yr extended warranty. I got mine at Office Depot.

Remmy is watching me and whining.. He wants his treat. Told him he had to wait. Once he gets the treat he goes outside and comes back in and goes to bed. Think that is where I need to go here pretty soon. Tomorrow is a school morning. Looks like I will be taking the kids in the van a few more days. We are not warming up till Thursday.

Y'all have a good night.

Darlene, my Jeff sells new and used computers and he always recommends Dell. He doesn't have to work on them as much, he can get parts for them and they have a good rating. Just our thoughts but I'm sure your sons will find you a good deal. We just got a new laptop. Actually, it's HP. But it has a touch screen and Windows 8. I really like the touch screen as that is what most gadgets are using now and it's easier for me than a little cursor which I always lose somewhere off screen. Either give me a mouse or my finger. Haven't figured out the swipe thing yet where you just wave your hand.
Well, glad you are doing o.k. I live in a smaller town than both of you so I don't have acess to the great club stores. We have a Sam's Club 90 minutes away but we don't go there more than once or twice a year and we would have to carry a cooler to transport perishables. So we just shop at Walmart or Safeway or another grocery store in town that carries a few things no one else does. Since retiring I have spent less on groceries, don't have to meet government nutrition rules for the kids. Although I was reimbursed some for their meals, it's cheaper to just feed the two of us. I'm doing a lot more cooking from scratch which helps the budget and the waistline. I find I'm not stress eating anymore which is HUGE! I hope I lose more weight than the few pounds I've lost so far.
I'd better go eat breakfast and finish getting ready for church.
Glad to chat with you! Will continue to pray for Dottie's mom.

Hello Ladies. Sounds like you both had busy days. Sandra it is good that you are able to get up and down the stairs better with your knee. Hope it improves very soon. Hope you are able to get your lights down before too long. Sounds like you are both able to get some good deals with groceries.
I haven't bought strawberries here, because they're terrible. They're not only expensive, but they don't taste good and they go bad before long. I love fresh fruit, especially berries, but they are all so expensive right now.

Dottie, glad you were able to get yourself a membership at Planet Fitness. I am sure you will enjoy it.

Sorry I haven't been here for a couple of days. Thursday my Small Group Bible Study started up again, and I didn't get home until after 11:00 pm. By the time I got on here, I was too tired to do everything. Last night I tried to get on here, but my computer decided to act up and I couldn't access this topic. I desperately need a new computer. Hopefully I will be able to buy one early in the new year. I am expecting some money back from Canada Post, so I hope to get myself a lap top. Two of my sons are checking into prices, etc. to see if I can get a good deal. I don't want just a cheap one, but I don't want to pay too much either. We'll see what I can come up with. At least I won't have to come into my bedroom all the time to use the computer. I will be able to use it anywhere. Our cable company has a WI FI access so that we can get WI FI at over 35,000 hot spots in the city. I can register my phone, my tablet and my lap top when I get it, and then I will be able to use it anywhere. I know there are WI FI spots in the coffee shops, etc., but you have to know their passwords. Once I sign up with Shaw I can use my own password at all the WI Fi spots.

We have Safeway stores here as well, but they are very expensive. I prefer to go to Superstore. We get better deals there. They also have a club card and you can access their specials throughout the week and you earn extra points when you buy certain items. I have only had the card for a short period, but when I went to the store last week the cashier asked me if I wanted to use my points to pay for my groceries, and she told me I had $40. I got my groceries for less than half price. I am going to try to shop there more often. Our shuttle bus goes there every Monday and Wednesday at 2:00 P.M., so I don't have to take the transit bus. The driver is very good about helping us put our groceries in the van and he takes them out for us. He often lends me his cart so I don't have to carry all the groceries into my apartment.

Well, I'd better go and get ready for bed. For some reason I am very tired tonight. I did manage to get all my laundry done, thanks to my friend upstairs. She came and helped me. Tomorrow she is going to come and help me take my tree down after we get home from church.

Talk to you ladies again soon. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Yep, had a good day but I am so tired. Did laundry so it was up and down the stairs several times which is good for my knee. They are actually getting easier which is exciting. I can tell my knee is stronger just wish it wasn't hurting. This week it got bad so I thought I had overdone which I had, but it might also be weather. Just have lots of swelling in the back of it which hurts when I sit and it presses on the fluid. Icing helps and I try to stretch but today I was so busy and tired I didn't do my therapy. I will do it tomorrow, figure the stairs were good enough. Jeff tried to take down his Christmas lights again and he did get some down but the rest are frozen into the ground or onto the house. It might be Easter before we get them down.
I bet the kids like the strawberries. I bought some this week too and some blueberries and had them with whipped cream. I had salad with leftover chicken today for lunch. Boy, you sure got some great deals on food, ours aren't that cheap! Safeway often has milk for $2 a gallon so I buy it there but when it's not on sale I have to get it at Walmart for $3.75! That's horrible! We drink about 3 gal a week just the two of us so that takes a chunk out of my budget. Hopefully it will be cheap again next week.
Wonder where Darlen has been, hope she's o.k.
Will pray for your mom. Hope she gets well soon! We need praying hands emoticons!

Hello everyone.. Gonna take a few minutes while beef veggie stew is simmering on stove to chat a few minutes. Yesterday was one crazy day. Factory Direct had called to let me know that they would be by between 9 and 10 to bring my new ice bucket/tray. The guy showed up with it at 9:30. I had started on the bank statement so after he left I finished that up then because I had not done any errands this week I had them all to do. So I got to Walmart about 10:30 then went to HyVee had some lunch and got the few groceries I needed. Had some things on my list and I had to back track a couple times because I kept getting ahead of myself. After HyVee I went over to Planet Fitness... I think everyone must have waited for the last day of the special. Anyway because it was going to be a little while and I still had things to do before kids got out of school. So I told them I would be back. Went over to Price Chopper. They had Strawberries for 1.88 for 16oz (reg price was 6.99) Got 3 of them. Then 10 lbs of potatoes for 1.99 and some country style pork ribs for 1.79 lb. Also picked up some Fritos for the kids next time we have Chili. By then it was 3pm and I headed home. Did not make it to Aldi's for Milk and bread. Got kids all picked up from school then went to Planet Fitness.. Took an hour to get the paperwork processed. They had stuff lined up and only 2 computers to enter stuff. Any way I will have to cancel membership in May. Then rejoin after kids go back to school. Course hoping to be in PA by then.. So now I will go up there during the day to work out (mostly use treadmill) Course any day the kids are out of school will not be able to go.
Today I am doing laundry. Had a glass of celery, cucumber, apple and kale juice and homemade toasted bread for breakfast. Ate a big salad for lunch. Made it with some spring greens, romaine, carrots. red and orange peppers, parsley some pumpkin seeds, Chai seeds, sunflower seeds and some almond slivers and a couple slices of turkey chopped up. Had some sundried tomato dressing on that. Going to make some biscuits to go with the stew.

Darlene and Sandra hope you are all having a great Saturday. If you all could remember my Mom in prayer she has been sick since right after Christmas. She thought she was getting better and then yesterday she got really sick again. Hate not being there to help take care of her. Thanks.

Y'all have a good evening.

I didn't know the nutribullet would do kale and spinach. Wasn't sure about the leafy stuff. I never got a juicer but I make smoothies in the blender. If you get a Planet Fitness membership are you locked in for a year or just month-to-month? I think the price is reasonable and would be worth it for the months you could go. Give you a good head start anyway and get you out of the house but that's just my opinion. It's a commitment.
I did get to Walmart and the pharmacy but the wait at the pharmacy was long and my knee hurt bad and I was done in so I spent the afternoon sitting and talking on the phone with my girlfriend. Tomorrow I have to clean the bird cage and my sister wants to go to the yarn mill with me. (one of my favorite places :) It got to 39 degrees this morning and was melting but after lunch the clouds and wind came up and now the temps have dropped down to the frigid and everything is ice. I don't think we will have a warm up anytime soon. It's just hard to go out. Making spaghetti and salad for supper. Intended to make bread either in the bread machine or new mixer but it's too late for that. Hope you had a good day Darlene.

Morning Ladies. So many things I want to do but just don't know where to start. I get frustrated with myself. I did not use to be like this. Some days I just sit in my recliner and let the day slip away. Been thinking about joining Planet Fitness.. They put one in the Old Price Chopper building. They had taken the front part of the building off and did some other remodeling. I was in there a few months ago and talked to them and looked around. They have a special thru the 9th of Jan for 1 dollar down and then 10 dollars a month.. I would not be able to go in June or July or the 1st half of Aug. (and that is if we are still here) as the kids would be out of school. So not sure how that would work out. SO I am still thinking about it.. Course tomorrow is the 9th..
The place I got my fridge from called to say the part was in and the guy would call me in the morning with a time. So tomorrow may be crazy as I also need to get the kids scripts. Hope that he will come early. My ice holder has cracked. It had a small crack a few months after we got it but did not think to much about it. Last time they were here I pulled it out to show the guy and it had multiply cracks. So they ordered a new one. So it is a five minute job if that long.

Sandra I agree hibernation sounds good. I need to steam clean my carpets. (I really dislike carpeting we had planned on pulling it all out). Guess I just need to take the plunge and try to figure out this machine. I have never used it. Tom always cleaned the carpets while I was working and the kids were in school. Christmas 2013 I was really messed up and I found a picture of the tree from 2012 and how we had moved stuff to fit it in this little living room. This year me and the kids decided not to put it up. Glad Jeff is doing well.
Sorry to hear he does not want another pet.. cat or dog. Hopefully he will change his mind. Pray that you made it to Safeway and Walmart safely and back home with out to much difficulty.

Darlene glad you are taking it a little easy the last couple days. Glad that you will have a ride to Bible Study and home. I know your wind chills are a little cooler than ours. So be careful going out even just back and forth to the car. Did you get that snow last night. We are to get some this weekend but our temps are to start warming up Sat and Sun. Smoothie sounds good. What kind of protein powder do you use?
I had gotten a nutribullet which makes smoothies. I have tried a few combinations some I liked and some I did not. The almond milk and banana's with berries sound good. I made carrot juice yesterday in my juicer. I used some Kale as I was out of spinach.

Well ladies if I sit here much longer nothing will get done again today. So I think I best get up and figure out something to do.. I have a lot of shredding to do. And the basement could use some attention. So hope you ladies both have a good day. Stay warm.

Yum, your smoothie sounds good. I am getting ready to go to Walmart this morning. The roads aren't bad but the walking is treachorous and it scares me. Plus pulling the cart to the car is hard. I don't want to go but I need to. Also have to go to the pharmacy at Safeway. (a grocery store, don't know if you have those in Canada). So I'd better get moving.
It's amazing how much you use your shoulder Dottie. We don't even realize what all our body parts do and how hard they work for us until they are hurt. I had a hard time with being immobolized. It just killed me to sit all day and not be able to get up and move around whenever I wanted. I don't take it for granted anymore. Makes me motivated to get rid of some weight as I know it is hurting my body. If only food didn't taste so good...

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well. Sounds like you have been busy, Sandra. It's nice that you're able to get around and do things now. Hope your DH is doing well with his pt and that he will soon be able to move his arm around more. I am still dealing with a sore shoulder because of all the moving I did on Friday. I can't believe I hurt so much just from trying on clothes. I'll be glad when I am able to get in some physio next week. Hopefully that will help get my arm more mobile. I need to be able to do some vacuuming and washing floors, etc. Need to do some more laundry as well.

Dottie, hope you're doing well. Glad you didn't forget too much by not taking your list to the store. Our weather here is still pretty cold. It has been sunny, but cold with the wind chills. We are supposed to get some snow tonight, but it is supposed to be very windy tomorrow. I don't have to go out, thank goodness. I do have my bible study tomorrow evening, but a friend picks me up and gives me a ride home, so I don't have to be out too long. Friday I am planning on going to the knitting club. I haven't been there for a while. My friend said she'd pick me up and give me a ride home.

I didn't do too much today, other than go to Superstore with the shuttle. I had to buy a few things. I was running out of food. I wanted to pick up some things so that I can make a smoothie in my new personal blender I bought. It is a lot smaller than my regular blender, so it will take up less space. I like making smoothies for breakfast with frozen berries, bananas, almond milk and spinach. I sometimes add some protein powder as well. I am going to try it tomorrow. I think I have a couple of avocados as well. I usually add half of an avacado as well.

I'll drop by again tomorrow after bible study. Hope you have a good night's rest.

Well, I didn't rest that much, cooked breakfast burritos and froze some for Jeff to take to work, cleaned house and tried to keep busy. I got very lonely, miss my dog a lot. Made the mistake of looking at pets at the humane society. They have cats for $10 right now and there are a couple I would love to have. Jeff says no more cats and now he doesn't want another dog. Not sure I agree. :(

sounds like we all need to hibernate till spring! I have been so lazy this morning, I just really need a quiet day. Yesterday was way too much but it feels good to have it done. Need to vacuum and we need to move furniture back but not sure how we will accomplish that since my bil who helped before Christmas had hernia surgery and Jeff shouldn't move his shoulder. His PT is starting him on moving it himself finally. Seems like it's getting a tiny bit looser. Sorry you still have pain Darlene, Jeff is sore sometimes at night as well. Or if he uses it too much at work. They were doing a lot of snow removal and now they are picking up Christmas trees they mulch and have available to the public for free. So he's doing mostly driving right now.
I never remember exactly where to put my Christmas decorations from year to year so this year I took a picture of everything before I packed it all up. Hope it makes the decorating easier next year. As long as I don't buy any more stuff, the house is full as it is!

Hi Sandra.. I see you slipped in this morning while I was creating my post. Glad you are taking a day to not do anything but stay inside and keep warm. Sounds like you did everything yesterday. We are staying in the freezer (weather wise) for a couple more days. Then looks like about 3 maybe 4 days in the low 30's. There are a lot of strains of flu that the shot does not cover.
Have a great day. emoticon

Morning Ladies.. Hope everyone is staying warm.

The cold cold air from Winnipeg arrived here last night. (my ears always perk up when the weatherman mentions Winnipeg) We are to remain in the single digits with negative numbers for wind chills through tomorrow afternoon. Then they said we would climb to a balmy 20 degrees. Right now wind chills are -20 and some areas -25. Temps are like 2 and 3 degrees.. School district opted to have school today. Made the boys wear t-shirts under a long sleeve shirt. GD has PE today so I let her wear a short sleeve shirt. Then they put their hoodies under on under their coats. I took them to the bus stop and will most likely pick them up since it is not to get above 6 degrees today.

Darlene.. If I would have grabbed my list off the fridge I would have been alright. I remembered the list of stuff that were on the fuel saver ad for HyVee but not the walmart list.. oh well.. I will get the stuff Friday or Monday. What I forgot was not stuff that I was out of just getting close.
Hope your weather is better next week. Not sure what ours is to be.. Right now we have a 20% chance of snow Sat and Sun.
Wow that was some shopping trip. Glad you had a good time and got some good deals. Just sorry your arm was sore and hurting. Hopefully it is doing better today. So did you get your tree down yesterday?
I need to get busy and make some juice this morning. Then I want to work in the basement.

Sandra hope you are doing well and having a good day. I imagine you are cold there too. My Mom got 4 inches of snow yesterday and I think she said they were to get more today or tomorrow. She lives in Pennsylvania.

Need to get busy or I will still be sitting here at lunch time.

Hope you both have a great day. Stay warm and stay inside if possible. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Today I am not doing anything. Usually go to Walmart on Wed but I don't have my list made. Yesterday morning was great, felt so good, had an apt with the pain dr then did a little shopping, went home and cooked lunch, put up Christmas decorations, had a haircut, finished Christmas undecorating. I hurt so bad I took a whirlpool bath and still had to take a pain med at bedtime. Haven't taken one for a while but my knee was not happy. Today the temps are very low and after two days of melting, it's all ice so I'm glad to stay in. I will try to go to Walmart tomorrow, the temps will be back up. It's really yo-yoing, don't know what to expect. Wish the snow was just on the grass. It's treacherous out there! My cold is gone I think, but sounds like the flu bug is rampant. Sure praying we don't get that. We both had flu shots but they aren't working on this strain. Maybe I can nap later, didn't sleep that well. Oops, better go uncover the birds, surprised they aren't screaming at me already.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Dottie, sorry to hear you forgot some things you needed from Wal Mart. Glad you were able to get your furnace fixed. The weather here has been very cold as well. -37 with the wind chills tonight. It is supposed to stay cold all week and then warm up to normal temps next week. I cancelled lunch with my SIL tomorrow. It is just too far to go on the bus in this cold weather. We re-scheduled for next Tuesday. Hopefully it won't be quite so cold.

Sandra, glad to hear you had a good trip. Sorry to hear you're sick with a head cold. Hope you get better fast. Getting a rose for a vase sounds lovely. Great way to brighten up your day. Hope your knee feels better soon. Try not to do too much at once. Hope you're able to get out soon. I understand about getting cabin fever. I had the same problem when I had my knees replaced.

A friend from church and I went out shopping on Friday. She picked me up at about 9:00 A.M. and I didn't get home until Midnight. Boy, was I tired. My arm is still quite sore. I was trying on clothes and taking my coat off and putting it on again. I guess it was just too much. I didn't realize until I got home. I had to take some pain pills so that I could sleep. My arm is still sore. My friend picked me up for church on Sunday and we went to the early service, then we went out shopping again. We didn't stay out so late on Sunday though, as all the stores close at 6:00 PM. Her DH was on holidays over Christmas, and he went back to work today. He works evenings and he uses the car so she can't get out as much. He is off on Thursdays and Fridays so those are the only days she has the car and can go out and do things. He doesn't mind her going out. He just tells her to have fun. We always do.

I didn't do too much today. I was tired as I didn't get too much sleep over the weekend. I will see what I can do tomorrow. I don't want to overdo things with my arm, but I do need to keep it moving.
I am going to try to take my Christmas tree down tomorrow. I will just take my time.

Have a good night's rest. Will try to stop by again tomorrow.

Darlene

Had a busy day today. Went to Walmart to get some allergy meds and dog food and a few other things. Did not grab my Walmart list from the fridge so I was going from memory.. Forgot about half of the stuff on it. Oh well it is not like I don't go there a couple times a week. Then I went to HyVee and had breakfast and got some groceries.
Home did a load of laundry and made dinner. Had barbequed chicken sandwiches with mashed potatoes and green beans.

Sandra glad you had a great trip. Sorry to hear that you ended up with a head cold. Glad you got to see Jeff's Dad. I hear temps will be mild in NC and SC till Weds then they will have a cold front go thru. It is so cold here also. Today we got to 23. Started out at 12. But Weds is gonna be even colder.. The high is only going to be 6 degrees. brrr.. Can understand you wanting to be careful in this bad weather. I have some birdseed that I need to put out. I think I would have trouble with slanted walkways too. I fell on a flat parking lot..
That is a cool idea to give a rose for vases given. I have given a lot of stuff to Savers thrift store. My ex told me I should have a yard sale.. told him it was to much trouble.

Darlene hope you are doing okay.

Have a good evening.

Yes, we are back and had a great trip. We both ended up with head colds but most of the little ones there were on antibiotics and also coughing their heads off. We thought about staying home but we would lose so much money on non-refundable things and everyone who visited the rest home had to wear masks and use hand sanitizer anyway. We worried about making Jeff's dad sick so we just tried to stay a distance away and not touch him except to hug him goodbye. They were able to bring him to Jeff's sister's house to see everyone and have lunch with us,. We gathered around the piano and sang Christmas songs and his favorite hymns. He started crying and we all got teary. This past year was so hard on him and he has come so far and has a great testimony of God's grace. So it was a great trip. The temp in Charlotte when we arrived was 60 degrees. It was zero when we left home. My sister texted me one day and said it was -25 with wind chills of -45. It snowed again this weekend and stays cold so we still have quite a bit on the ground. Main roads are clear but our side streets are terrible except where they are packed down. Supposed to melt this week but that can make it worse. I tried to run an errand this morning but Jeff has the car and his snow plow sub has my pickup key so I will hopefully go after lunch if Jeff can give me his key. This snow makes it so hard to run to town or do anything. Trash piles up because I'm afraid of falling. I did make it to the dumpster Sat but the wind was blowing in my face and I had to be so careful where I stepped. I put out birdseed in the feeder and also on the ground so the bunnies and bigger birds can eat. The bunnies are so cute! I want to keep them and name them :)
Well, my knee is doing o.k, made it through the airports but discovered my balance was off and I had difficulty on slanted walkways. Just went slow and held on when possible. It's sore since we got home though and now has a bony lump underneath. Doesn't hurt so I try not to worry about it. I will ask the therapist next time I see her which won't be soon. I'm finished wtih therapy now and Jeff goes right after work so he doesn't take me with him. I don't mind being home alone but this time of year is so hard for me. I want to go outside, or just somewhere with people but it's cold and snowy. I will get cabin fever before long. I have been cleaning out which is good. Found out the flower shop will take used vases so I cleaned out half of a kitchen shelf and am going to deliver them when I get the keys. She said they even give a rose for the vases. How nice, something alive and colorful! I have a box started for another Goodwill donation and put all the daycare stuff in the basement or playroom to sell later this spring. I wish someone else would do it for me. What a job!

I hope you are feeling better Dottie! How are you doing Darlene?

Hello ladies. Sorry I have not been here for several days. Have not been feeling to spiffy and dealing with a bunch of stuff. Got the furnace fixed. My oldest son who does that kind of work got the part and put it on Friday night. He got it cheaper than the first price he quoted me. The first place he called was 155 plus tax.. He ended up going somewhere else and got it for 132 plus tax. I paid 144.00 for the part and of course since he put it on no labor charges or fees. He did not make it back Sat to work on basement ceiling though. Found out Sat. evening he had to help the guy on call replace a hot water heater. Wish he would have called me I could have done some grocery shopping.

Our weather was cold but clear on Saturday. Today we are in the deep freeze with snow on the ground. Did not go to church since I was not sure how the roads were. The boys are wrestling around after just being told not to do it. Their sister is laying down because she had a headache. Still trying to find a doctor for the kids.. This is so crazy.

Darlene sounds like you have been busy. I have lunch dishes in the sink and some containers that leftovers were taken out of.. But will wash them all with the supper dishes. Glad you were able to get out with a friend and get some shopping done.

I ordered two more photo holders from LTD today. I filled the one I got for Christmas and it only has pictures from 1991 thru Nov 1993. The plastic container still has pictures from Dec 1993 thru 2000 I believe.. Maybe 2001.. The photo holders are to hold 1600 photos each. It is a case that has little boxes inside. Pretty nifty. I put a picture of it on my photo page.

Sandra hope you and hubby had a good visit with family.

I need to give some correction to a couple boys. So I am going to sign off for now. Will try to get back tomorrow. Will see how I am feeling.

Hi Dottie. Sorry to hear of the problems with your heat. Hope you are able to get it working again. Glad you will have the cash to have it repaired. I know it is hard not to be able to buy new clothing when you need it. Hopefully things will get better for you. Hope you are able to find a doctor for the kids on Friday.

I actually had a great sleep last night. I was refreshed today and was able to get all my laundry done and get all my garbage out. Didn't get my dishes washed, but I will do that in the morning after breakfast.

I had a call from a good friend today, and we're going to go out together on Friday and do some shopping. We don't always buy a lot, but we have a lot of fun together looking through the stores and just chatting. We like the same things, so often we end up with the same clothing only in different colors. She is going to pick me up after my care worker comes, and they we are going for a late breakfast and then we will have supper together before we're done shopping. I need to get to Wal Mart and buy a gift for my other friend's daughter. She wants a personal blender. I wasn't able to find anything before Christmas, so I'm hoping they will have some available. Had a milder day today, but I didn't go out anywhere. I have no plans to go anywhere tomorrow either. Everything will be closed.

I didn't even watch any of the New Year's Eve Celebrations. I know I'll be up, but I don't think I'll bother with them. I'll go and do some reading instead.

Hope you have a good night's rest. Will try to drop by tomorrow.

Darlene

Well I did not get here yesterday because about 4pm I lost internet and phone service. So yesterday was a quiet day. I worked on trying to find a new doctor for the kids. Course I called insurance co and we got a doctor set up at St Lukes Medical Center.. But when I called them they said none of there Doctors were taking new patients with the kids insurance. So I called the insurance co back and they said it shows all the doctors accepting new patients. So St. Lukes needs to update their information. Now it is back to the drawing board. But most offices will be closed tomorrow. So Know what I will be doing Friday. Today we got up to no heat. My oldest son who is certified technician told me a little trick he uses at the apartment complex while they are waiting on a part or petty cash.. Have been able to keep it running all day. Need a new motor but he said this should work for a couple days. He will be able to get the part on Friday. He said it would cost 155. My brother is going to send me 55.00. I will use the 100 I got for Christmas.. Some new clothes will have to wait till another day. The newest top I have is 8 yrs old. All my slacks are at least 10 years old and I have reconditioned the waist band in a few of them. I will say it is a heck of a way to start the new year. Just glad that I decided to wait to buy my stuff.

Me and the kids watched a couple movies.. One was a Christmas Candle by Max Lacado had Susan Boyle in it. Then we watched When the Game Stands Tall. Both good movies. Had me a snack.. made me an avocado, tomato and onion sandwich.

Darlene oh my -45 we were not quite that cold.. Think we were -6 last night. We got up to 22 today. We are to get back to the 30's tomorrow. But Sat night we are dropping to 7 again and only 18 Sunday.. Your bracelet sounds beautiful. I am sure the jewelry store would take care of sizing it without the receipt. Glad you didn't have to get out very much today.

Well news is showing all the New Years eve celebration all over the world.

Think I will get ready for bed. Not sure I will see the ball drop. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year

Hello Dottie. Sounds like you had a busy day shopping. Sorry to hear about your problem with Wal Mart. I haven't had problems with our Wal Marts here. They are usually very good about exchanging things, even if you don't have a receipt. If you want to return an item and don't have a receipt they will usually give you a gift card for that amount rather than the cash.

The bracelet my son gave me is a solid rope of sterling silver. It doesn't have links. I will probably have to go and be measured for the correct size. I will try to do that next week when it warms up a little. If I don't hear from my son I will go on my own, otherwise I will ask him if he has the receipt.

It is very cold here today. We have extreme wind chill warnings. With the wind chills the temperatures are down to -45 degrees. That's the same in both F. and C. I didn't go far today. I just took the shuttle over to Safeway. Tomorrow I have a chiropractor's appointment. I will take the shuttle over there, but I will take a bus home. It is just too cold to walk. Otherwise I'm not going anywhere. It is supposed to warm up for a couple of days and then get very cold again for the weekend.

Sandra, hope you are staying warm, wherever you are.

Hope you have a good night's rest ladies. Stay warm.

Darlene

Hello ladies.. Today we spent shopping. Kids had received money for Christmas from our real estate agent. So took them to the stores. emoticon Took GD to the music store first so she could get some stuff they use at school to clean the flutes. Then we went to the Walmart out that way as I had bought them their nunchuks (for the Wii) there. Well one did not work.. So put it back in its wrapping and the lady at customer service tried to tell me I did not buy it there.. Not only did I have a gift receipt (which I had asked for) I also had the regular receipt.. It was on there.. but the code on the package was saying item not found.. she kept telling me I did not buy it there.. I told her it was right there on the receipt and the box even said blue so I knew I did not mix up the packages when I redid them.. I worked in retail I know how its done.. I had her call a manager. I was ready to leave the thing. We did get our refund but I left the store and did not look around at anything. We went over to Target. Walmart is getting worse all the time. Kids found a couple things at Target. We went to Culvers for lunch.. They got to buy their own meals today as they had gift cards for Culvers. I had the Cashew Chicken salad and a sm cup of potato soup. It was delicious. Then we came back to our neighborhood. Went to our Walmart.. I found a tall container for wrapping paper.. Also a couple boxes of cards half price.. They did not have a big selection though. Then kids spent a little more of their money. Had to get gas so bought some groceries and added more cents to my fuel savers card... paid 7 cents a gallon for my gas today. To fill up it was 89 cents.. Our gas is 1.88 a gallon right now. Wonder if it will drop anymore. Anyway came home and fixed the gravy and leftover chicken for dinner. Also heated up the left over beans and potatoes from the other night.

Darlene glad that you were feeling better and able to enjoy Christmas with friends and family. That is really super. The bracelet sounds beautiful.. Yes I know what the Pandora Bracelets are. They advertised them a lot through the holidays... It was the "he went to Jared" commercial for Christmas. I have one charm bracelet but it was from years ago when I was in TOPS. (take off pounds sensibly). I would think the jewelry store would take a couple links off it without you having to have the receipt. Yes it is not good that it slides off your wrist without opening the clasp. emoticon
Happy that you were able to get to church yesterday. Have not been to a candle light service in 2 years. (since Tom's gone) My night vision is not very good so try not to drive at night if I can prevent it.

Sandra bet you are still in Carolina enjoying that warm weather. It is gonna be one cold week here. Today was fairly decent.. But we have an Artic front coming in. Tomorrow we will only be in the 20's and they said when we get up Weds it will only be 4 degrees.. Didn't say what the wind chill was going to be.. So think the kids and I will be inside for a few days. Unless we need something.. Friday they have dental appts so we need to go out then.

Ladies hope y'all sleep well and have a good night.

Seek Ye FIRST the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and ALL these things SHALL be added unto you!

Fear thou not for I am with thee be not dismayed for I am thy God. I will strengthen thee, Yea I will help thee. I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness. Isaiah 41:10

Jesus Loves Me this I Know for the Bible Tells me So
