Hello Ladies

Dottie, glad you had a good day today. I can just see your GS trying the habanaro pepper, lol. That is something I would try. I love spicy food. Glad you got a little sunshine today at least.

Sandra, I can understand what it is like to feel cooped up in your home. I do hope the weather improves so you are able to get out and walk a little.

I had put out 2 night time back pain pills ready for me to take before bed, however, I fell asleep before I took them. I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and wasn't able to get back to sleep. It was too late to take the pills at that time. Oh, well. I will try again tonight. I did take some regular back pain pills today, and I am feeling better. My son dropped by for a quick visit this afternoon. He has been working on his truck so that he can get back and forth to work. It broke down on him yesterday. I hope he was able to get it running this evening so he can get to work tomorrow. He was riding his bike all over the city today. He lives out of town, though, and it a little far to ride a bike on a hot sunny day.

I have physio tomorrow and then I'm going to go and spend some time in the mall. They are repairing our hydro again, and the hydro is going to be off all afternoon. I don't understand why it takes so long to repair the hydro. It seems like they are either shutting the hydro or the water off every week. It is getting annoying. They are also having a problem getting the air conditioning running. They said they started it up, but it takes a couple of days to come on. A lot of people are complaining. It doesn't really help to have your windows open, as there hasn't been much of a breeze lately. Maybe I'll be able to get in for a hair cut tomorrow. Maybe I'll find a message from my doctor's office when I get home tomorrow. He should have the results of the CT scan. I will call him if I dont hear from him, as I need to have a blood test done so that I can start taking my Metformin again.

Well, I think I will try to get some sleep. I hope I don't wake up at 5:00 am again. I need a good night's rest. Chat with you tomorrow. Have a good night.

Good evening everyone. Had a busy fun day. Started out taking kids to the library, after they did their morning chores. Then we went to Sprouts and got some lettuce, tomatoes and taco shells for dinner. Oldest GS said he thought a habenaro pepper would taste good and he would try one. Told him they were hot. But he was going to try. So I bought some little ones to chop up.
Then took them to Culvers for lunch. I had a salad. We stopped at aldi's for some almond milk and some ice cream. Then came home. Cleaned out the closet in the half bath. Now I need to pack the stuff. Fixed Taco's for dinner and the habanero peppers were tried. Won't have them again.. lol..
We had partial sunny skies today and we were to get a t storm this afternoon but it did not happen. Course there is chance of rain tomorrow and thru Sunday they said. Will be 60% on Sat and to be AM rain so games in the rain again...

Darlene hope that the back pain is gone today. I know I have had to lay flat on my back for tests and it is not fun. Not only does it bother my back but it is hard for me to breathe laying flat. Glad that you were able to get a nap in. Also that you did not have a Vertigo attack.

Sandra seems like weather wise we are in the same boat. I am ready to build an ark. LOL.. Sorry your day was boring. Hope you are able to get outside soon. Maybe you can walk in the mall today.

Hope you both had a good day. Good night for now. See ya sometime tomorrow. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi, hope you're feeling better by now Darlene. No, we didn't do anything yesterday. Grilled burgers on the covered patio but spent the whole day bored. I read mostly. The sun is halfway out today but we will have rain again this afternoon. I have my ortho apt before lunch but I don't expect anything new. We are watching for water in the basement as the river is supposed to be over record levels by Thrs. The leak in the roof is better, barely there so at least that isn't such a threat now. I'm getting antsy being indoors so much. We tried to walk at the mall last evening but they were closed for the holiday so I didn't get any exercise at all this weekend which makes me hurt more. We are already 4.6" above normal for the year now. A few years ago we were in a draught. No in between I guess. Either burn or flood. God has protected us so far. We pray for no hail and tornadoes. Working with disaster relief has opened our eyes to the reality that no one is exempt from trouble. Only by God's grace do we have the blessings we've come to take for granted. I hope today is good for you both. Talk to you soon

Hello Ladies. Just dropping by for a quick minute. I'm in too much back pain to be on here too long.

I went for my CT scan today, and somehow lying on the bed (or whatever they call it) to have my test done just did me in. I can't lay on my back without having my knees up. I'm so glad God was with me and I didn't have a Vertigo attack while I was there. At least the tests have improved since the last time I had a scan. They didn't inject too much dye in me, and the tests only lasted about 5 minutes.
Planning on taking some back pain medication before bed. I need it tonight. I did manage to catch a nap this afternoon, so I'm not quite as tired as I would have been. It has still been a long day.

Hope the rain goes away for you soon. I know what it's like when you have days and weeks of rain. I too start feeling very depressed and down. It is hard when you can't get out and do things.

Take care. I'll drop by again tomorrow. Hopefully my back pain will have subsided by then. Have a good night's rest.

Hello ladies. Did not do a lot today. Cooked some burgers and dogs inside. Had some beans and potato salad. Cut up some watermelon. Now watching a kids movie with the kids. Been having headache pains again. Gonna have to have GS adjust back.

Hope y'all have had a good day. We had some sunshine for awhile. Then it got cloudy and then sunny.. just a crazy day. Because it was raining this morni0ng and more rain coming tonight and tomorrow.

Darlene our forecast is rain all week.. 30-40% till Fri and Sat then it is 60%. So it looks like it could be another set of games played in the rain. Ugh. They only have 3 games left and so far they have all been in the rain or threatening rain..
Glad the service for your niece was nice. Also that she gave her heart to Jesus before she died. That is wonderful news.
Praying for those tests today. I can understand your not being able to fall asleep. I hope you are able to get some rest tonight. If you don't make it here we will understand.

Sandra hope you had a great day. Did you do anything for Memorial Day.
Hope you both have a good evening.

I'm trying hard to stay awake. It's only 4:45 in the afternoon. It rained ALL day again! In the last 10 days or so we have only seen the sun once. A few hours yesterday. It was wonderful but the clouds came back and it was raining again last evening and all day today. I'm so sick of it! Farmers can't get into their fields and garbage trucks get stuck and people have water in their basements. Ours is still dry but the water is getting closer. They say we are to have sun in a week or so. I didn't plant any flowers like I usually do and we couldn't pull the dead bushes out or do anything outside today. Sadie kept looking out the window and crying so Jeff took her out with him when he grilled burgers on the patio. Silly girl got wet and he brought her back in.

Hope your tests go well Darlene, still thinking of you and praying. I see the dr tomorrow but I'm not expecting much help. It's hard to care about anything when it's so gloomy out. I enjoy the rain but not when it hangs around all month. It feels like we just wasted our 3 day weekend doing nothing. I'm sure it will get nicer soon but I really need to be walking. Hope your rain goes away too Dottie!

Hello Ladies

Hope you're doing well. Dottie, sorry to hear you're still getting so much rain. Hope it stops soon. I'm sure it must be frustrating for you with all you have to do. Glad the kids are able to help out now.
Packing up what you don't need sounds like a good idea. Hope you're able to accomplish all you need to do.

Sandra, hope you're doing well. Hope your knee is improving. Did you get any more rain?

It has been sunny and hot here, in the 80's and low 90's. Expecting a little rain some time this week, but not too much.

I went to my niece's funeral yesterday. It was a lovely service. There weren't too many people there, but it was a nice gathering. They played a couple of songs that Jo-Anne used to like and the pastor spoke of God's love. I was so happy to find out that a week before she passed away, my niece found God and invited Christ into her heart. She had been in the hospital for 3 weeks before that, and she thought she was going to die. I guess that is why she didn't. God was waiting for her. What a blessing.

After the funeral my sister decided she wanted to go to the casino. She insisted we had to go with her. She has COPD, so she can't get around by herself. Her daughter was there with her. We all went to the casino for a while and then we went back to my sister's for tea and a visit. My brother drove me home. I didn't get home until after midnight.

I wasn't able to sleep much last night. After all the emotions on Saturday and the stress over my up-coming tests, I just couldn't fall asleep. I did manage to get a couple of hours of rest after my home care worker came. I need to be up by 6:00 am tomorrow so that I can have a shower before I go to the hospital for my test. I have to catch the bus at 7:30 so I can be there before 8:15. I also have my Women's Bible Study tomorrow night. I am going to be exhausted. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get back on here after I get home from bible study. I'll see how I feel.

I'd better get to bed. It's after Midnight. Chat with you soon.

Good Morning everyone. Just popping in really quick. Want to start the fun stuff.. Having the kids clean out there stuff. Told them to go through there drawers downstairs where there papers and crayons, and markers are. To start throwing stuff away. Also to go thru the toy bin. Told the boys to do that as there is a lot of stuff they don't play with anymore. Don't want to take it along. emoticon GD is doing her regular chores first. Boys can't do their reg. Sat morning chores since it is raining outside.
I did not get to bed till late and I am still a little tired. Have a slight headache. Need to make me a breakfast blast. Then I want to clear out some closets. I have some throws that I won't need this summer that I can pack and a few misc. items that I can pack. Also need to get some laundry done. Only did one load yesterday.
It is rainy and cloudy. It is only to be 69 today. Getting tired of this wet weather pattern we are in.

Well I need to get busy. Hope everyone has a great day.

Good Night ladies.. yep it is 11 pm here. Time for me to call it a night.. I have papers that I have been going through that the kids brought home from school today.. they only had a half day today. After they got home we went to the store. I ended up with 2.55 on my fuel savers card and gas was 2.51. I was under my half gallon mark. I paid 11 cents for my tank of gas and still have 4 cents left toward next time.. WooHoo.. Home and made chili for supper and my granddaughter came over and had supper with us. We watched part of the Royals game together. She stayed till bottom of the fifth. Royals were home tonight and her Mom lives not far from the stadium. She is planning on going back to TX on Tuesday. Said she would stop by on Monday. Now here it is late.. Royals won 5-0.. We beat the Cardinals.. It was the first of 3 games.

Darlene.. You are in my prayers. Praying that further testing will show something else. Glad the physio went good. Also that you have your bible study group and the people at church. Hope you are able to get to the birthday party on Saturday. How did your eye appointment go today. I can understand your feeling like you been hit with that sledge hammer.. Glad you are having nicer weather.. Wish we were. As for stopping not really. I just keep going.. hahahahaha.. To many things to do. Yes I have told the kids they are going to be helping me. The oldest GS told me that before I buy any more rocks to put in the back to help with draining water from the yard.. I was to be sure to take them with me.
And they help me with the lawn mowing and weed eating.

Sandra yes the end of June will be coming faster than I want it to probably. I am working on a place in PA. Hopefully it will go VA and if it does then I can work things out with the owner. Since everything depends on this place selling. I worry about this as my ex is the one trying to by. Just hope that everything goes through. Have not heard anything about the appraisal and I told him to call. He did today the person he is dealing with is out of the office till Tuesday. Glad that you got to walk yesterday. I have not done my DVD all week. But I have been keeping busy. :) :) Hope you don't have to start pumping water from the basement. But I know what you are saying about the rain.. My backyard is like a swamp. But we have rain in the forecast thru Weds. Yuck..

Well ladies it is almost midnight now. I better get off here and get to bed. Hope you have a good night.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Hello, Ladies. I'm actually early tonight.

Hope you both had a good day.

Sandra, thank you so much for your kind words and prayers. They are so appreciated. I feel like I know you and Dottie. We have been chatting for some time and I just feel so comfortable talking to both of you.

The weather hear was actually up to 80 today. It was very sunny and hot. I had a call from the hospital today, and my CT scan has been scheduled for Monday morning. Wow! I can't believe I got in that fast. You generally have to wait quite a wile for a CT Scan or an MRI. I guess my doctor has some pull. I should find out the results within a week or so, unless they are able to get the results to my doctor sooner. I will let you both know as soon as I hear anything.

I was supposed to go to get my eyes checked today, but with all that's been going on, I just didn't feel like going out. I called and cancelled. I will make another appointment once I know what is happening with all these tests, etc.

I have that funeral to go to tomorrow. I hope I'll be able to get a ride home. I will take a bus there, but it is quite a ways away. I will have to check on line to see how to get there from where I live.

I also have to check the bus schedule for Monday morning. I have to be at the hospital for 8:15, and I'm not sure what time that particular bus starts running. I may end up having to take a cab.

Dottie, how are things going for you today. Hope you managed to get some things done. The time sure is passing quickly isn't it? It won't be long before you're ready to move. Hope things work out well for you.

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

Oh Darlene, I will be praying for you as well! I think of you as one of my friends and it makes me sad to think of you going through this. I'm so glad you have a good church and Bible study friends. Sounds like you have a good doctor too.
I'm glad it's been sunny and warm there and that your shoulder is feeling a little better.

Wow, Dottie, end of June will be here before you know it. Summer is a good time to move and get settled. Do you have a place to land in Pennsylvania or will you have to house hunt when you get there? I think school is out here too now. I don't have little ones in my life anymore so I don't keep up with that.

I made myself walk yesterday as I had missed a whole week and it felt pretty good. I don't know if I'll make it today as it's supposed to rain again. And then rain all weekend too. We live in a low area and many neighbors are pumping water out of their basements. Our water is still about a foot below the basement floor but we may have to pump also if it keeps raining. My neighborhood used to be part of the North Platte River long ago and should never have had basements in our houses but somebody was stupid back in the day these were built. I'm so thankful we live on the high end of the street.

Well, so glad I popped on today so I could read Darlene's post. Please keep us posted and know we are praying for you and love you.

Hello Ladies. You sure have been busy. Sandra, I'm glad Sadie is able to go out on her own and that she doesn't run away. That is good. Sounds like you'll be having that office space fixed up very soon.
I'm sure you'll be glad when it is all done and you can move everything in there. I'm sure it is frustrating. Sorry to hear you're dealing with such bad weather. Hope it improves soon and that you are able to get some work done in your yard. Sorry to hear you're still having a lot of problems with your knee. Hope it gets better quickly.

Dottie, do you ever stop? It seems like you're always running somewhere. I don't know how you manage to keep up and still do all that work you do at home. Hopefully the kids will be able to help more once they are out of school.

The weather has been pretty nice here lately, finally. It has been in the low 60's most of the week, with lots of sunshine. It is supposed to be even warmer over the next few days. I'm really looking forward to it.

My physio went quite well on Wednesday. My shoulder was feeling good and I was able to do all of the exercises without too much pain. I'm seeing my orthopedic surgeon next week so I'll see what he tells me. I'm not sure how much longer I am supposed to go for physio. I don't mind, as it isn't costing me anything.

The visit to my doctor was another story. I told my doctor that I was still having problems with my coughing and my problem breathing. He decided he would prescribe a puffer for me to help clear out my airways. He also decided to send me for an x-ray. I went to the hospital for the x-ray as it is only a couple of blocks from my doctor's office. Well, before I got home, my doctor's secretary was calling me and telling me that he wanted to see me today. I knew that didn't sound good. I went back today, and he told me that the results were not good. He thinks that I have cancer in my right lung. He was very good about telling me this, and he wanted me to know that the x-ray results did not mean that had cancer. He said it may be something else. He sent me for some blood work to see how my kidneys are doing, and he said he is going to arrange with the hospital for a CT scan.
He said if the CT scan comes back positive, he will send me to Cancer Care for more testing.
He said he was going to try to get all the testing and results back as quickly as possible so that I know what is going on. I feel like I have been hit with a sledge hammer.

Thank the Good Lord that I had my Small Group Bible Study tonight. I talked to the ladies about what I have been going through, and they are all going to pray for me. I knew that I would get the support I needed from them. I also contacted our church and asked to be put on the prayer chain.

My niece's funeral is scheduled for Saturday afternoon. I was supposed to go to a 65th Birthday Party for one of my Small Group members, but I may not be able to go, depending on how long the funeral is.

Well, I think I will go and try to get some rest. I have an eye doctor's appointment tomorrow.

Chat with you soon.

Good evening Ladies. Well today was spent at stores. Started out at Sprouts for veggies. Then went to Walmart got dog treats, laundry stuff and dish soap. Got some peanut butter and blackberry jelly. Then went to HyVee Was able to add 76 cents to my fuel savers card. Going tomorrow and spending another 50 dollars and get another 25 cents. And get a coffee at the convience store and get 3 cents.. That will put me at 2.29. Right now gas is 2.52. It had shot up 10 cents mid week last week to 2.42 then Tuesday after noon it jumped another 10 cents.. It is just totally crazy. Cause ya know it will not come down that fast.
I also need to get by Aldi's. Need some grapes and no one had any on sale and I know they are always priced good there.

Made the kids some pizza for dinner. Tomorrow I think I will cook some salmon. The kids have a half day tomorrow than they are out for the summer.. Hopefully will be on the road by the end of June.. Still no firm dates.

Sandra yes it sounds like you have me beat in the weather department. Thankfully we have not had any snow. I can imagine it is a little hard to plant anything with this weather. Glad Sadie will go outside on her own and come back inside. Remmy goes outside and chases the squirrels.. They will go up in the tree and run back and forth across the branches While he runs around underneath barking like crazy. Hope you were able to get your housework done before the guy came to measure for the carpet. I don't think you sounded Whiny. Always glad to hear about whats happening.

Darlene hope you had a good day today. What did your doctor say about the sinuses. How did your Physio go?

Well it is time for kids to say prayers and get ready for bed. Hope you both have a good night and pleasant dreams. emoticon

Hope my earlier post doesn't sound too whiny. I didn't mean to be so negative but it's hard to emote in writing. Hope you both have a good day.

Good morning. Sounds like you're both busy as usual. Or more so. I have days with nothing going on and then days that everything happens. I'm sorry about your nephew Darlene, How sad. Is he ok? And sorry to hear of a death in the family. That is always so hard. Dottie, I was getting tense just reading about your time crunch trying to get everybody everywhere on time. Jeff and I hate being late so usually end up being too early. Sometimes that's embarrassing too. LOL

I think our weather has you beat Dottie. We are 4" above normal for the year for precip and yesterday had a high in the 40s! It has been freezing here! It snowed twice this month!! By now I usually am planting flowers and should be well into the 70s and 80s. The sun hasn't shone since Sunday I think it was and it doesn't look to be nice until next week. We won't be enjoying the long weekend much. We have a row of junipers in front of the house we need to take out. The foot of snow last winter did them in. They are old though and each winter they look a little worse but usually came out of it. This year they are mostly dead and I'm glad to take them out. They are extremely prickly and cover up the water spout so I have to drag the hose from the backyard through the garage to the front to water the flowers. So unhandy. No idea how to landscape the front now without those bushes and it's so expensive to redo it. I don't think I'm even going to get a garden this summer but not sure I could physically do it anyway and who knows what this weather is going to do?! It started out so nice in April and the flowers bloomed early so we thought we were going to have a mild spring. Then winter returned. My friend in Tennessee is too hot with 87 degrees and I'm at 47! Can we meet in the middle? Anyway, can't change it but it makes me tired. It's hard to get up in the morning.

So, I'm off to do housework before the man comes to measure the room for carpet. I will be so glad to have that room done. The rest of the bedrooms need cleaned so bad but stuff is stored in them so I can't do anything in there yet.

I let Sadie play outside yesterday and she loved it. I've been letting her stay out longer by herself and yes, she is coming home. She doesn't seem to roam too far, just next door or in the big tree out front. I think she chased a bunny the other day but didn't catch it. I will have to keep her in when the fledglings are out of the nest but I haven't seen any yet. Must be too cold. She's a real hunter, mice beware! Wish she had been here earlier in the winter, we had about 6 before they stopped coming in. YUCK!

Well, this is not getting my work done. We seriously need some sun! Everyone is complaining about it.

Hello Ladies

Yesterday turned out to be a heavy duty work day. emoticon After getting back from the cemetery and putting different flowers in the pot I mowed the yard. The back was tricky as it was so wet and pretty muddy. Then I ate a piece of toast with some strawberry jelly as I was tired and did not feel like making a big salad. After that I went down stairs in the garage and moved a bunch of boxes out of the way and moved this shelf up under the hanging shelf that is on the back wall of the garage. Son had cut the tops off the 2x4's that had been on the corners.. Moving all the stuff pushing that big thing (7ft long about 5ft tall and 4ft wide) under the shelf and then putting every thing back took me a little over 2 hours. Mowing the yard took me an hour and ten minutes... My back was yelling and so was my feet and knee.

Last evening was a time crunch one. Youngest GS usually gets home about 20 minutes to five from his bus.. last night he had to be at his graduation from 5th grade and DARE program at 5:45.. Okay not to bad.. except for one thing.. His big sister had her school trip to Worlds of Fun yesterday. Had to pick her up by 5:30. The buses were supposed to get back at 5:15.. So I had the boys eat PB&J sandwiches, a banana and some goldfish.. (fixed sandwich and banana for GD) Youngest had to change his clothes.. Had to wear jeans and his dare shirt. We were at her school at 5:05 well the first bus came about 5:13 she was not on that one.. then waited almost 15 more minutes before the rest of the buses started coming in.. She was on the next to last one. I had sent the boys over to get her.. Well then they stop while she talks to another child.. I finally hollered at them because it was 5:35.. Had 10 minutes to get back over to the other school... Well we made it about 5:48 but it was ok. Oldest GS went into the school with him while I walked across the parking lot.. both handicap spots had been taken and I ended up at the far end of the lot. Glad I keep my cane in the van. Anyway the program was nice. The top four winners of the DARE essay writing read their essays. Then all the kids got up on the risers and they did 5 songs. Really nice. emoticon

Today I did not do a lot but it was rainy and cold. emoticon So was not able to return to the garage and do any more in there. I did pack a box of stuff from my closet. I met my granddaughter at Culvers for lunch. She had come in for the week as her baby sister was graduating from HS last night. Then I fixed dinner which was leftover chicken, ribs and spaghetti. I had a salad for lunch today and a small frozen custard.

Darlene Glad to hear that your adjustment was successful. Yes having my GS do my back was helpful. emoticon Kinda knew that when nothing was easing the headache that my back was out. Our weather is stuck in a emoticon pattern. Today it only got to 54 and broke the record set in 1892 for the coldest day in May. We are also almost 3 inches over in rain for the month and about three quarters over for the year. We have rain in the forecast all weekend again. :( Yes there has been a lot of storm damage around here and in some of the Northern towns.
Hope physio went well and that your doctor can do something about those sinuses. Also that your glasses got adjusted and they don't hurt your nose any more.

Sandra hope you had a good day today. emoticon

Well Guess I will get ready for bed then relax and read a little bit. Hope you both have a good night. emoticon Will catch you tomorrow.

Hello Ladies

Sorry I have been MIA again. I have just been dealing with a death in the family and my nephew had a heart attack. It just seems that there are so many things going on. Sometimes I just get over-stressed and just don't have the energy to do too much.

Dottie, glad you were able to get some relief from your headache. Glad your GS was able to adjust your back for you. Hope you were able to get your yard mowed.

Sandra, hope you didn't have a problem getting Sadie back inside. The color for your room sounds lovely. I am sure it will go very well with a grey rug. I'm sure you are anxious to get it finished so you can start using it for your office. Hope your knee is doing better.

I went to the chiropractor today. It felt good to have the adjustment. I actually didn't have any back pain this time after he adjusted me, and I was actually able to walk with out pain. Tomorrow I'm going for physio again and then back to my doctor regarding my sinus problem. I need to go over to the mall afterwards and have my glasses adjusted. They are really hurting me. The nose guard on the left side seems to be digging in to my skin. It probably just needs to be adjusted a little. I'd rather go to the Optician to have it done. That way if they break something it's their fault.

Our weather has improved quite a bit. We had quite a few storms over the weekend. A tractor-trailer actually blew over on one of the highways near here. There was snow and freezing rain on Sunday evening and a lot of people were having problems driving. They were telling everyone to stay off the highways unless they absolutely had to be there. There were a lot of trees blown over and some of them were on power lines. I don't think anyone was injured, but I'm sure glad it didn't get any worse. That wind was something else.

Well, I'll drop by again tomorrow. Hope you both have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Hello ladies. Today has been cooler. We are getting cool winds from Canada they said. Our high temp was 66 today. Tomorrow night rain is in the forecast again so I guess tomorrow I will be mowing grass first. It is to rain most of the day Weds. then storms again this weekend.. Ugh.. I am so tired of this weather pattern. We need a stretch of several days with no rain. I may have a hard time mowing out back.. I will gauge it tomorrow. Know I can do the front for sure. My oldest son will be coming over to do a couple things for me. He leaves this Thurs afternoon for New York City. My granddaughter is already in Texas.. She is coming back for a couple days. Her younger sister has graduation ceremony tomorrow evening. The school only gives tickets for immediate family so I was not invited to the ceremony. Grandparents are not considered immediate family.
Made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight. It goes a long way.

Darlene glad you got a ride home from church. Cold rain is no fun to be out in. Hope you were able to do some cleaning like you wanted to. I actually slept pretty good last night. I had my GD rub some pain oinment I have into my shoulders and across my back and then up my neck a little bit. It did help. Also this morning I got my oldest GS to adjust my back. Will be glad when he gets a little taller and can do the standing one. It is hard for me to get down and then back up.

Sandra yes the pain subsided some today as GS was able to adjust my back. Glad you were able to have the graduation without rain. WooHoo on getting your office almost finished. Sounds like a nice color for the walls. And once you get everything in place sounds like it will be awesome. Sorry to hear you might not get your garden in but maybe you could work with the soil over the summer and fall. As for keeping bunnies out of your garden try dried blood. I know my Mom used it in her flower beds.. She got hers at Lowes but I am sure any garden place would have it.. I am trying to do more healthy stuff. I am looking into more whole foods. Hope Sadie was okay. Sorry to hear that you have been having so much pain and discomfort.

Will catch you both tomorrow sometime. I need to mow grass in morning and get out to the cemetary.. This weather does not cooperate very well.

You both are in my prayers. Hope you have a good night.

So sorry about your friend Dottie! How sad you didn't get to see her. When I get headaches they seem to be from my stiff neck. Hopefully your pain will go away. Isn't the weather weird everywhere? We are having really cool rainy days and it won't be warm for over a week. Went to youngest nephew's graduation yesterday outside and it rained before the graduates came out then was pretty breezy and sunny/cloudy. So not a bad day but it was kind of dicey for a while. I finished painting the office and we are ready for carpet now, going to look tonight. I like the color of the walls, Jeff isn't too sure he does but I'm hoping it will grow on him. No more filthy off white walls and red carpet. Now it's a grayish lavender and will have gray carpet. I have pictures for the walls of mountains that repeat some of those colors. It no longer looks like a kids room so I'm happy. soon we can move the computer in and hang pictures and put the books back in the bookcases. Don't know if I will get my garden this summer as we're running out of time but I am having trouble physically anyway so I may not be able to do much more than plant a tomato and some herbs. I want corn too but we have so many bunnies and I don't know how to keep them out and the soil is pure sand right now.

I had to get online to look for gluten free recipes to take to a friend who had rotator cuff surgery today. I settled on bacon wrapped chicken breasts and peanut butter cookies. I got the cookie recipe off Spark Recipes. Just uses peanut butter egg and sugar. My sister will make a green salad to go with it. I am not going to go to a lot of work and expense. There are only two of them so I make the same for us and we share a meal basically.

I need to go check on Sadie. I left her outside and let her play. It's too cool for me. I need to go walk but I'm so discouraged with the knee I don't know if I will make myself today. It's been kind of a downer day for me too for a couple reasons I won't bore you with. So glad God knows and understands and hopefully tomorrow will be better for all of us.

Hello Ladies

Dottie, I'm so sorry to hear about your bff. I can understand how bad you must feel dealing with this.
I'm thinking of you and praying for you. Hope your headache goes away. Sounds like a lovely supper.

Glad to hear that the bad weather didn't affect you too much. We had a lot of rain overnight, and it rained most of the day today. The temperature has gone down during the day rather than up. Last time I checked it was 0 C or 32 F. It was cold and windy as well. I wore my winter coat to church.
it was pretty windy when I went this morning, and the church bus wasn't running, so I had to take the transit bus. Thankfully, my friend gave me a ride home. It was raining pretty hard by then. Hope it warms up tomorrow. It's a holiday here, so I don't have to go anywhere. Maybe I'll be able to finish some of that cleaning I have been trying to do. I don't suppose they will be working on that new building or on the caulking if it is raining. Yesterday they were cutting the grass with a lawn tractor. After all this rain it probably won't be long before they have to do that again.

Well, I think I will go and take a couple of Tylenol and get some rest. This weather isn't good for my arthritis. My whole body is aching. Talk to you tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Hello Darlene and Sandra. Hope you both had a good day. Mine was going okay till I got a call from Pennslyvania. As soon as he told me his name I knew why he had called. My bff, his wife had lost her fight with cancer. She had been diagnosed about a month after we left to come to Missouri. Now she is gone. I had talked to her a few weeks ago and told her I was trying to sell the house and get moved back there. But last week I had an email from one of the ladies at we had worked with to tell me she had taken a turn for the worse and her kidneys were failing. I knew it would not be long if that happened. I am doing okay I guess. Have cried. Am sad that I won't get to see her now when I get back there. She always knew when something was wrong and we would talk about everything. Stuff happening in my life and hers. I talked to her right after Tom died and she encouraged me best she could from 1200 miles away.

Did finish up my laundry today. Been fighting some pain that comes and goes on the side of my head. Thinking my back is out because nothing seems to help it. Made bbq pork ribs country style tonight for dinner with baked potato and the kids had cottage cheese with theirs and I had some left over green beans.

Darlene we had some severe weather here last night with tornado sirens going off about 11:30pm. We had high winds and heavy rain with thunder. Checked the rain gauge today and we had 3&1/4 inches of rain. Tornado's touched down in some of the little towns North and East of here. Winds were still high today at 30mph.

Sorry to hear about your niece. Hope that your nephew is doing better. Did you get to church today? Also did your son call you. Sounds like you are busy as well.

Well ladies getting off for now. Tired and want to relax a little bit.

Have a good evening.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Sounds like you're still pretty busy Dottie. Hope you're not getting any of the storms going around. I know there were tornado watches in Minnesota today. I was watching that channel, and they kept cutting in telling people to make sure they went to a safe place. It is pretty scarey. Glad you were able to get your laundry done.

Sandra, it's good to hear from you. Sorry to hear you're having so much pain. Hope you feel better soon. I know what that is like. We are expecting thunder showers tonight and it is supposed to rain all day tomorrow and the temperatures are going to drop. We may have snow or freezing rain tomorrow evening. It is also supposed to be very windy. I'm planning on wearing my winter coat again tomorrow. I didn't get a call regarding the church bus, so I guess I have to take the transit bus to church tomorrow. Hope it isn't raining.

I heard from my sister today. She told me she heard our niece had passed away. No one seems to know anything about it. She was going to check and call me back, but she hasn't called yet. My brother was over at my sisters and he said he heard about my niece's passing from her BIL. Still waiting to find out how my nephew is doing after his heart attack. He posed on Facebook last night that he had a stent put in. I hope that's all he needs. I will probably get a call from my SIL tomorrow letting me know what is going on.

I managed to get my laundry done today as well. Hope to go to church tomorrow. I am hoping my son calls me. He put in a job application and then used my phone number as his contact. His cell phone is being repaired. I did get a call from the company, and they want to interview him. I have no way to reach him if he doesn't contact me.

Well, I think I will try to get to bed early. I'm in a lot of pain tonight, probably from the weather. Talk to you ladies again tomorrow.

Hello Ladies.. Today was a humid day and we got both boys games in. There other grandpa came and he took us to lunch at Perkins. The boys had soup and salad. I had a salad and so did GD. Youngest GS's team lost again today. But they played a good game and had fun. Oldest GS's team won again. We stayed dry which is a good thing. The grass was wet and it was soggy in places.

Got home and the kids took showers. I got mine done before the storms got here. We are under a tornado watch. So don't want to be long tonight. Made chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans for dinner. Did a couple loads of laundry and still have a couple more to do.

Darlene and Sandra hope you both had a good day.

Will catch up with you tomorrow. Hope you both have a good night.

Hello everyone.. Here I am again it is past bedtime. Almost forgot that I had not been here yet. Was doing my checkbook and it hit me. Started my day running to the grocery store. Had not planned on going but GS needed snacks for his team tomorrow. I got some fruit snacks and apples. Also small water bottles. He has one person on his team that is allergic to wheat. After I got done at the store the sky was really dark so I came on home and just as I was pulling into my driveway it started to rain those big raindrops.. Well I got the gates closed and got the groceries in the garage. Well that shower lasted all of 10 minutes.. Then the sun came out and it really got humid. It had been muggy before the rain and worse after. Tonight they had a Night with the Band for incoming Freshman and as much as I am hoping we will be out of here I still took GD. She had a chance to meet some of the kids that are already in HS in the band. Then home again. Course everyone is in bed now.. but me. We have games in the morning. Hopefully it will stay dry. We have rain coming in from the West they are not to be here till later in the afternoon so we wil see.

Darlene Wow you sure have a lot on your plate the next couple weeks. Sounds like my schedule at least till schools out. Next Tues the 19th GD goes to Worlds of Fun for end of school trip and they have to be picked up at 5:15.. Hopefully the buses will be back on time as I turn around and have to have youngest at his 5th grade DARE graduation at 5:45. It will be a tight time squeeze. Then there are some other school things they are doing next week. Hope that all your appts go smoothly and you get some answers. I hope you can get someone soon to help you in the mornings. My Mom told me she hooks her bra in front and then twists it around. But that doesn't work for me.. I usually end up with it all messed up.. LOL... hence the front hook bra's. I know that Just My Size has a website that you could order from if you can't find them in the store. Hope you were able to do something at the knitting club today.
Sorry to hear about your SIL's son. Will pray that all goes well and that he will follow doctors orders and change what needs to be changed.

Sandra good to see you. Miss you when you are not able to be here. But understand. I have logged in 443 days straight now. And I try not to forget. I try not to have sweets around either. I like them to much and I am trying to get the kids eating better stuff. Course that is not always possible in some situations. Like tonight at the high school.. they had hot dogs, chips, cookies, brownies, and all kinds of stuff that I have been trying to get replace. I did get a couple loads of laundry done today. Our weather is squirrely here. It is to be 80 tomorrow and Sunday then we drop to upper 60's Monday and Tues and then Weds it is only going to be 58!
Kids get out of school at noon on Friday the 22nd of May. They help with some things. Hopefully will hear something about the appraisal by Tues. They said the first of the week. SO we shall see. I am thinking I will pay the closing cost just to get this place sold. My ex does not think he can come up with it. SO it will come out of my bottom line. But it will be worth it. I am hanging in there. Somedays I have to add a few knots to the rope.

Well ladies it is getting late and I need to be up early tomorrow. Have a good night. See ya sometime tomorrow.

So glad you got some rest Dottie. Try not to feel guilty for it, if you hadn't listened to your body you might have gotten sick. Our sleep needs vary as do our appetites. I know you both know how important eating is for diabetics. My mom decided not to eat much supper the other day and ended up unresponsive in the morning with a blood sugar reading of 22. The paramedics got it up and she was able to stay home but it scared us all. I started having issues with mine going down when we got home from our trip. I had been eating sugar again after graduation reception cakes and making cinnamon rolls. I don't have any willpower with sweets so I can't have them around. I'm doing better now and have lost all but 1 pound of what I gained on our trip. I'm so excited. I'm back to my 20 minute daily walk but I have been in a lot of pain since stopping the prescription naproxen. I've been on it a long time and I'm afraid of the kidney, liver and heart risks I keep hearing about. However, every time I stop taking it I hurt so bad I can't do anything. Seeing the ortho doc the 26th and if I don't get help I may have to go back to the pain clinic to see the new doctor. I have tendinitis in my shoulder and I have trouble with my bra too Darlene. I have to pull that arm behind my back with the other arm. I certainly don't know how you and Jeff handle not having full use of that arm. But I also struggle with walking and now my neck is hurting some too. We had a very nice day yesterday and then storms moved in again so looks like graduation Sunday will be indoors and it will be in the 60s all week. Then it typically jumps to 90 degrees and we burn up the rest of summer.

Well, I am working on laundry today and trying to take it easy. I fixed a nice supper last night and was on my feet over an hour and my knee swelled up and I was in so much pain all over I had to take a pain pill. Hoping to get my walk in this morning before it rains again. It does help my back feel better when I walk and it's good for me mentally to get out but I don't like walking in the wind.

I know what you mean about never having anything to do and then having too much to do Darlene, it's that way for me too it seems. Sounds like some of it will be enjoyable though. Good luck with your doctor apts too and I sure pray you get your help again. I understand how frustrating it is.

Dottie, hope you have a great day as well. I think about you both even when I don't get on here. How's the move going? And when are the kids out of school? Do they help you?
Hang in there, God will give you the strength.

Hello Ladies

Hope you had a great day.

Dottie, you must have been more tired than you realized. I'm glad you got to get a little more sleep. I'm sure you felt better. That salad sounds delicious.

I am sure the weather is not helping my shoulder problems. This damp weather with high humidity sure isn't good for my bones. The pressure can't be up, though, as I'm not in nearly as much pain as I was last week when the pressure was up. It has been a cold, windy and rainy day here as well. It got to about 52 F. Sure wasn't very nice.

I had a nice surprise this evening. My son dropped by on his way home from work. It was nice to see him. I made supper for him and I. I had bible study this evening, but we still had time to eat and have a nice visit. I went to my bible study this evening, but we didn't end up doing the study. We just chatted about how God has been working in all our lives. We have all been so blessed.
Two of the ladies were away. One wasn't feeling well and the other had another commitment. It's just as well we didn't watch the video and do the study, as they would have missed it.

I'm going to knitting club tomorrow. Not sure what I'll work on. It depends on how my arm is doing.
I still haven't got anyone coming in to help me get dressed in the morning. They are having a hard time finding someone. My friend is going to come by and pick me up. She said she would help me with my bra and blouse. We're going to go for breakfast and then go to the knitting club.

I am hoping I can end up having the home care a little longer as they are taking so long to get someone to come in the morning. I guess the lady who used to come has too many clients, so she can't. We'll see what happens.

I have been making lots of appointments lately. I have a physio appointment next week, so I made an appointment with my doctor for the same day. That way I can go from physio to his office, which is about two blocks away from the hospital. I have an appointment for a Diabetic eye exam on May 22 and I have an appointment with my Orthopedic Surgeon on June 3. I am going to a friend's 65th birthday party on May 23, and on May 24 our church is having an ice cream social. I may go to that as well. I also have a meeting of my Heritage Club on June 4. Boy, it never rains but it pours. Either I have nothing to do, or I have so much to do I don't know if I'm coming or going. I should have a quiet weekend this weekend. It is a long-weekend for us. It is supposed to be rainy on Saturday and Sunday so I'm not planning much for those days, other than church on Sunday.

Well, I think I will go and rest and watch a little tv before bed. I have been getting up early the last couple of days, and I will probably be up early again tomorrow. My friend won't be coming by until around 10:00 or 10:30 am. She will help me get dressed and then we'll go for breakfast. She has a doctor's appointment at 9:30, but it shouldn't take long. She just has to have 2 stitches removed.

I heard from my SIL today. She told me that her son (who is 47 years old) had a heart attack yesterday. He is in the hospital, and they are moving him to the hospital that specializes in heart disease. He is going to need some kind of surgery. Not sure if he is going to have stents put in or what, but he does have a blocked artery. He had to quit smoking. They are giving him the patch to use to help him quit. I don't think he eats too healthy either. I told my SIL to see if he is able to spend some time with a Diatician to help him learn to eat properly. Hopefully things will work out well for him.

Chat with you tomorrow. Have a good night.

Darlene

Hello ladies

Today was a cloudy dreary wet day. I did something this morning that is out of character for me. I went back to bed. I got the kids off to school and came home, sat in my chair dozed off and a phone call woke me up and after that I decided to go back to bed.. I heated up my heat pad and I slept for 2 hours.. Woke up at 12:30.. Wow guess I must have been tired. I even went to bed at 10 last night.
So I combined breakfast and lunch. I had a Pink Detox blast (very tasty) and a salad.
The Blast was made with avocado, celery, strawberries, beets and apple some lemon juice and coconut water..
My salad was the usual everything in it salad.. Kale, Spinach, Romaine lettuce. Did not use any green leaf today. Then I added some red and orange peppers, radishes, shredded carrots, some turnip, some navy beans (out of garbonza beans), tomato, diced up some chicken, then added pumpkin seeds, chia seeds and ground flax. Used Balsamic Vingaretti.. Some days I chop up some beets but since I had some in my blast I left them off the salad.
Cooked the rest of my turnips as they were starting to sprout. Oops did not realize had them that long. Added a little pepper and butter had them for supper along with a chicken patty.
Doing hamburgers and fries for kids and maybe some bbq'd beans. No packing or cleaning got done today. emoticon

Darlene sorry you had a hard time at Physio yesterday. Wonder if the weather has anything to do with it. Glad that you are able to get some more help from the Home care organization again. I buy the Just My Size brand of bras. Get them at walmart. They don't always have my size so I just keep watching. Really could use a couple new ones. I understand about not feeling hungry I get that way sometimes. But I will eat just so my sugars don't go wacky. Have some toast with peanut butter. Hope everything worked out with the caregiver and the water delivery.

kids are all settled into bed so I think I am going to try and make this an early night Will catch y'all tomorrow.

Nighty Night. Sweet dreams. emoticon

Hello Ladies.

Dottie, sounds like another busy day for you. Hope you're feeling better after lifting all that heavy stuff.
Sorry to hear your mother isn't feeling well. Hope she feels better soon. Hope your GD is recovering well from that absess.

It was cold and very humid today. 93% humidity. We are expecting rain tomorrow and again on Saturday and Sunday. Some people aren't going to be happy about that. It is the first long-weekend of the summer, and many people are wanting to get out to their cottages and open them up.

I had a very hard time at physio today. I couldn't do half of my exercises. My shoulder was just too sore. I am glad I have home care again. I can't buy bras that button in the front. We don't have them here any more. I sure wish I could find some good ones.

Today is one of those days when I just don't know what to eat. I didn't eat breakfast. I did eat lunch, but I haven't had supper. I'm not overly hungry, but I know I should eat something because of my Diabetes. My numbers always go out of whack on me when I don't eat right or if I'm not feeling well.

Maybe I'll make myself some toast before I go to bed. I have to be up early, as I have water being delivered. Don't know what time my home care worker is coming. Hope she gets here before my water is delivered. I don't know if I will have the same girl I had before or not. I do have the same girl on evenings.

Hope you ladies have a good night's rest.

I'll try to drop by tomorrow.

Darlene

Hello Ladies..

Today was a full day. After I got the kids off to school I went to Sprouts got some veggies. Then went to walmart and got two bags of river pebbles. Not sure what the weight was but they were heavy probably heavier than I should have been lifting.. came home and mowed back yard that took me about an hour. Grass was still wet and some places were thicker so that made it harder to mow.. Any way after the mowing I got the rocks out of the van and got them over to the canopy area where the riding mower had been. Still need some more under there. Tom and I had planned on putting several bags under there. I just left things alone but with all the rain it was soggy and water was running down the concrete pad and just sitting there (ground to wet to absorb). Need to get about 5 or 6 more bags. Have some places along the fence line I want to put them plus a couple more under the canopy.. put the wheelbarrows and the four wheel dolly under there. Will probably leave the wheelbarrows here.
After I mowed I came inside and cooled off and then fixed a salad and cleaned out my fridge while I was doing that and also called my Mom and talked to her. Was talking to her while I made the salad and cleaned out the fridge. She has not felt good the last couple days she said. I made the kids pizza for dinner tonight. (requested by the youngest) I did not eat any of it, I try to avoid pizza (even though I like it) but cheese sometimes messes with my system. :( Besides I ate my salad about 3pm. Now getting ready to rebandage GD's arm. I hurt all over and have heat bags on my shoulder and back. Even had one on my bad foot earlier as it was hurting.

Darlene glad that you were able to get the home care person back. Hope that your physio went well today. Pray that over the next couple weeks you will be able to get your arm behind your back. I use front hook bra's have for years. Hopefully you will not have to go on the long term care. WooHoo on getting some of your cleaning done yesterday were you able to get the rest of your cleaning finished today? Oh yes It started raining about 5pm and it is to rain thru the night and most of tomorrow, Then more rain thru the weekend again and temp to be 80 degrees on Sat and Sun.

Sandra hope your day was a good one and you are feeling better.

Gonna go to bed shortly so hope you both have a good night. emoticon

Hello Ladies

Dottie, so glad to hear your test results came out well. That takes some worry off of you. Glad you were able to help your ex with the paper work he needed to do. Hope you get the results from the appraisers quickly. I understand about night bathroom breaks. I wake up for them too. Sometimes I have a hard time getting back to sleep. I too drink a lot of water. I always have a bottle of water beside me. I don't drink too much of anything else. Only 1 cup of coffee a day and sometimes a cup of tea.

The weather here isn't the greatest either. It was cool and windy today and only about 53 F. We are supposed to get some rain tomorrow and Thursday, as well as on Saturday and Sunday. Not sure how much we will get. It is supposed to warm up again next week. i sure hope so. These days with high humidity and pressure sure give me a hard time.

I had to get my home care back again today. I stopped it last week. I was told to try it on my own for a week and see how I did. When they called me today I told them I was still having a lot of trouble with my shoulder. It is very difficult to get dressed, especially putting a bra on. That is one exercise that I am having problems with at physio as well. I can't get my arm up behind my back as far as I should without a lot of pain. I was told I could have the home care for two weeks and then we'll see how things go. If I need it for longer, I will probably have to have a home visit. The head lady told me she could put me on for long-term care if I needed it. I will see how my physio goes over the next couple of weeks. I will try harder with my exercises at home as well.

Well, I did manage to get some cleaning done today, but I didn't finish. I will see what I can do tomorow when I get home from physio.

Sandra, sorry to hear you're having so many problems with your knee and shoulder. My doctor had me on Naproxin some time ago for my Arthritis, but I didn't feel it was doing any good. I can't use it now, because I break out in a rash when I take anything like that. The only thing I am able to tolerate is Tylenol. I genearlly use Extra Strength Tylenol, and sometimes I take Back and Body Tylenol for Night Time. It has a sleep aid in it. It helps when I am in a lot of pain at bed time.

Hope you ladies both have a good night's rest. Chat with you tomorrow.

Darlene

Good evening ladies. It has been a long day and I am ready to go to bed. Almost forgot to log into spark.. I would have been upset with myself as I have over 400 days now.

Got up this morning and swept and mopped the kitchen then vaccumed the house. Shook the rugs and had everything looking good. Got the kids off to school and then went to the Doctor. All my numbers were good. Everything was down. Kidney and Liver function was good. Thyroid is up a little bit which was a good thing. My A1c was 6.1 which is down but still not where she wants it. My weight was up a pound and a half.. Probably water retention. But over all everything was good. My blood pressure was even good.
Got home and called my ex back he said he had some paperwork he did not understand so told him to come over and I would help him with it. Well before he got here the appraisers came and measured and took pictures. They left and he still was not here. Made me a sandwich instead of a salad. He finally showed up.. Said he had made a couple stops. Helped him with the paperwork.
Appraisers said that it would be the 1st of the week before they would have the numbers.
It has been in the 40's in the morning and getting into mid 60's in afternoon.. Lots of wind and it is a cold wind. Tomorrow last dry day. So will be doing back yard tomorrow. Then Thursday through Sunday more RAIN!!! Ugh!!!

Darlene got a little sleep last night. Just wish my bladder did not wake me after 3 hours. Course that is what happens when you drink a lot of water right before bed. I get thirsty easy though. SO I always have a glass of water close by. WooHoo on getting cleaning done. After all I got done this morning I still need to do the dusting. I hope the summer break from your Bible studies will result in more ladies coming this fall. I would come if I was closer. It was warmer today than yesterday but still windy. Think we got to 68 today.

Sandra I will be glad when things slow down too.. It is hard some days.
Sorry to hear that you are hurting so much. I understand what you mean about Naproxen. It is not real good for you.. But then nothing man made is. My doctor gave me a script for extra strength tylenol to use with my meloxicam. Hope you can get some answers.

Ladies have a good night. I must get myself to bed. Will catch you tomorrow.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Dottie, I sure hope things calm down for you, that sounds like a very full plate! I am hurting all over too. I stopped taking naproxen as I was on the prescription for over a year and I keep hearing how dangerous it is but I hurt so without it. I have another follow up with the ortho doc next month and my knee isn't much better and my shoulder is as bad as it was before. Really limits what I can do. The cortisone shot helped some but for only a short time. Don't know what he will want to do and I haven't met my deductibles yet so have to pay 100% out of my pocket. Sometime we need to get paint and carpet for the office we need to fix up and till and plant the garden. Right now it's on hold due to money and weather.

Darlene, maybe in the fall the ladies will be ready to come back to Bible study Seems the things of God take a back seat anymore, other priorities are crowding out God. So sad. Life is crazy now. I can't believe what high school kids do besides their studies! I don't know how they find time to sleep and many of them even work. I want to tell them to slow down, they have the rest of their lives to do things but everyone seems to want it all right now and life is so frenzied. They also do it because the competition for jobs and scholarships is intense. You have to be aggressive to get ahead and my family is not that way. I believe God has other blessings in store for us. Maybe not in this life though. Well, that's my rant for the day. I will talk to you both later.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Sandra, it's good to see you back. Glad you enjoyed your trip. The weather seems to be crazy all over. It's only in the 40's and low 50's here right now. It is supposed to warm up a little by the weekend. I hope so. I wish this wind would die down. It seems like it's windy every day.

Dottie, I can understand why you're tired. You have been so busy lately, that there hasn't been much time for rest. Hope things go well with the blood work tomorrow and the appraisal. Sorry to hear your GD has a problem with another abscess. Hope it heals quickly.

I didn't do too much today, except a little bit of cleaning. I was supposed to have a bible study here, but the other ladies who are supposed to attend haven't been coming, so I told my friend that we should just cancel the bible studies until the Fall. Maybe we will be lucky and get more people attending. My friend and her daughter came over for a visit instead.

Tomorrow I have some major cleaning to accomplish. Hope I can get some things done.

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

Hello ladies. I am tired tonight. Had to go to store today and get stuff to doctor GD armpit area again. She had another abscess. This one busted on its own and was draining from same spot as last one. So went to store and got more gauze and tape. Then got gas as we had to go to GD's band concert tonight. I was at a half tank. Home and mowed front yard. Will do the back yard Weds. Give it some time to dry out. Front does not grow like the back does. I have an appt to go over my bloodwork tomorrow and then the appraisers will be here. So hope that before the kids getr off to school I can get a few things done. Then after youngests gets on the bus I will leave for my Dr. Appt. That is a 25 minute drive. I feel like I have run a marathon today. Had to take some Ibuprofen at the concert because I hurt all over. My left foot was the worst. That is the one I had surgery on.

Darlene Today was sunny but chilly.. had 20-30 mph winds from the west. Our high was only to be 65. We are not to get rain again till Thurs. then it is through the weekend again. Ugh!!! I can understand the weather changes messing with us. Hope you can get your doctor to find some answers for you.

Sandra good to see you back. Yes the weather is definitely crazy.. I have not planted any thing yet and probably won't but my perennials have come up. Some of my lilies have buds on them. Glad you had a nice visit. Hope you can get the meals all lined up.

Well ladies I really need to get off here and get to bed.. Hope you both have a good night. Will catch you sometime tomorrow.

Hi ladies, crazy things going on with the weather. Driving through Indiana on the way home it was 89 degrees and we were roasting. Then got home and it was 39 and snowing! Glad we didn't run into any of the tornadoes we heard about. Glad I haven't planted flowers or a garden yet.

We had a nice visit although it was very short. Long drive both directions but very beautiful.
I need to get some meals lined up for a church friend who will be having rotator cuff surgery next week and I need to plan some menus and make a shopping list. I get so tired of trying to figure out what to fix that's healthy and also cheap. It isn't easy.

Just thought I'd drop in and let you know I'm back. I'll catch up more with you both later.

Hello Ladies. Hope you had a Wonderful Mother's Day.

Sorry I have been MIA for the last few days. The weather and my sinuses are just doing me in. I was in too much pain to even try to use the computer for a couple of nights. I am also dealing with headaches. I need to go back to the doctor again. The medication he gave me is not working. If he doesn't do more then prescribe more medication I'm going to go to a walk in clinic that used to be a hospital. Apparently they have doctors and nurses available there, and if you go there they will make sure they get an answer to your problem before they send you away. I may have to wait for a few hours to get to see someone, but maybe then I'll get some answers. I'm getting frustrated.

Dottie, sounds like you have been pretty busy as well. Hope the rain cleared up a little for you so you can get some of the things you need to do done. Hope things work out well with the appraisal. I am supposed to have bible study here tomorrow night, but I may just cancel for the rest of the summer. We haven't been getting the regular people coming when they're supposed to, and half the time it is just my co-leader and I here. Our Women's Bible Study at the church is going to be on our next bible study day. They are moving the bible study up a week because of the May long-weekend. Then June 8 is our last bible study for the summer. We have our pot luck that night. That would be my regular bible study night as well, so things are going to be mixed up. Maybe we'll be able to start up in September with more members or at least have the regular women attending when they're supposed to. We'll see what happens. I'm going to leave it in God's hands, and see what He wants me to do.

We are supposed to get some warmer temperatures this week. I just hope the humidity and pressure changes so that I don't get all this pain.

Well, I'll try to drop by again tomorrow. Hope you have a good night.

Darlene

Just checking in to say hello. Hope your all doing well. Today we had games. No rain which was good. It stayed cloudy and windy though. After the games took the kids to Culvers for lunch then we got home and I cut the boys hair and did laundry. They wanted chili for dinner. That was my day. Oh yeah the people that are going to do the appraisal on the house called and are coming Tues at noon.

Hope you both had a good day and are doing well.

Have a good night and sweet dreams.

Good evening ladies.. Just stopping by before I shut down and go to bed. Went to HyVee pick up the kids scripts and got a couple things that were on special today. Also got some some dog food. Remmy is just about out. Got back home and did a couple loads of laundry. My back and shoulders have bothered me the last few days. It is probably all this rain. Humidity is high too. Could take a mud bath in one part of my backyard it is so wet. Did not get rain today.. Supposed to have some tonight and through Sunday. Monday we are to start drying out. Praying that the storms hold off in the morning so the boys can get their games in.

Hope you ladies had a good day today. Have a good night and sleep well.

Hi Darlene.. yes crazy is right. We are having T-storms right now. Heavy rain. It is just very wet.. Humidity is driving me nuts..We are to get to 80 again today. This morning the Humidity was 73%.. Walked the kids to the bus stop and it was sticky. As for the move not sure yet.. My ex did sign the contract but he acts sometimes like he is going to back out at the last minute.. Hopefully he won't.
Wow they sure had your power off for a while. Glad that you could kill some time in Walmart then share coffee with another person from your block. How neat. Glad that you live on the 1st floor and did not have to climb any stairs. We are to cool down Monday. Our high is to be 68 that will be nice. It is also where our temps should be this time of year. Our lows will be in the mid 40's to low 50's.. Course that is for Mon, Tue and Wed.

This morning I made me a blast with ginger, blackberries, strawberries, spinach and oatmeal then almond milk. It was creamy and very tasty. While I was drinking that I made some beet juice, some cucumber, celery juice than some carrot beet juice.. Have not done much juicing lately. Just my blasts. Well need to finish cleaning the juicer have a couple pieces soaking.. It is easier to clean them. Then I need to finish the clothing switch..

Hope you ladies have a good day. Darlene sounds like your day is going to be a busy one.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Dottie, I see you're getting some crazy weather too. Sorry I haven't been on here for a couple of days. This weather is sure taking it's toll on me. I have been in too much pain to even get on the computer much. I didn't sleep much at all last night, so I plan on taking a couple of night time pain pills tonight, and hopefully I will get some rest. We had a lot of rain today as well.

Hope things are going well for you with regard to your move. I see the kids are quite busy with school year ending soon. Glad your son made it to help out and hope he can come back and finish up the things you need him to do before he moves.

I went for physio today, and I found out the other day that they were turning our hydro off for a couple of hours so that they could work on it. After physio I went over to Wal Mart to kill some time. On the way home I ran in to a gentleman who lives in my block. He said he was going to go and have a bite to eat before he went home as the power was out anyway. He asked me if I would join him to keep him company, and he said he would pay for my meal. I wasn't hungry, as I had already eaten, but I agreed to go with him and I had a cup of coffee while he ate. His soup looked so good I ordered some to take home and I had it for my supper. It was delicious. He paid for my coffee and my soup. That was so nice of him. He lives alone and he likes to have someone to chat with. We took the bus home together. We got kind of wet walking from the bus stop, but it wasn't raining too hard. Our power was still out when we got home. We didn't get it back until around 5:30 pm. I felt bad for those people who live upstairs, as all the elevators were out. I'm lucky I live on the main floor.

It is still quite cool outside and it is still raining. We are supposed to get more rain tomorrow, and it is going to turn colder. It was around 72 F today. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to drop to about about 45 F. It is supposed to warm up again next week. Tomorrow I have a luncheon with the retired postal employees. Tomorrow evening I have my small group bible study. Friday I may go to the knitting club if I'm not too tired.

Well, I'd better close now and get ready for bed. I am very tired. Hope you both have a good night's rest. I will try to get back tomorrow after bible study.

Hello Ladies.. It was another crazy weather day. One minute rain next minute sunny.. This went on all day.. In fact I had to do down to the bus stop and pick kids up because it was pouring. Today I went to Sprouts (forgot to grab some Kale and it was just down from the spinach) Got a few apples, banana's, tomatoes and some bulk stuff that was on sale. Then stopped at Aldi for some almond milk and bread. Since no one else had grapes on sale this week I got some grapes also. Then came home had a small salad for lunch. Also made a small glass of ice tea... Temps were close to 80 again and the humidity was up there.. But the weather guy said a cool down is coming the beginning of the week. YaY!! It will be closer to normal temps for May. Fixed bbq'd pork chops and potatoes. along with green beans.

Hope you both are doing okay.

Well should get off here and get dishes done. Then get ready for bed. Hope you have a good evening.

Good Morning ladies. Just popping in. I did 15 minutes of my walking DVD but my knee was bothering me this morning for some reason. So I did not do the full 30 minutes. Temp this morning was 60 degrees but the humidity was 96% we had one and a half inches of rain last night. More rain coming.. But today we are to be partly sunny and in the 80's. It is really to early for these temps. Oh well we take what we get. emoticon

Gotta run over to the bank and get some money for the kids. One needs 5, one needs 8 and the other one needs 10. Plus GD is supposed to be bringing home a paper about the end of the school year trip to worlds of fun for all the kids that made the renaissance all quarters. Hopefully the school will help with the cost again.. otherwise GD won't be going.

Hope you all have a great day.
Will try to check back later if not I will catch you all tomorrow.

Good evening. It was another humid day. We had a short shower this morning which only served to make things sticky. Had to pick up GD from school as she was sick. Nurse said she had a temp but when we got home she did not have one. ??? Haven't really done a lot. Did get some meat at HyVee and mailed my Mom the movie Frozen for Mother's Day. She has not seen it and we are always talking about Olaf. So the kids and I got her the movie. Hope that she will like it. Made beanie weenies for dinner. Picked up youngest GS from his running club then oldest GS had to be back at school for Junior Honor Society induction at 6:30 so it was a busy night. It has been raining this evening and we got in the house and the dog came back inside and it just started to pour it was accompanied by thunder and lightning. Next Monday the 11th GD has her final concert for the year. This month is full of stuff for school... It will be a challenging month for sure. I need to get some more boxes for packing been holding off till I know for sure that my Ex is going through with the purchase.

Darlene As for the weather well we have rain in the forecast every day except tomorrow. Yes I am glad that the mower and table sold. Been asked where we would sit and eat I said I have a card table. If I see my ex is not going to go through with the purchase then I might find a smaller dinette set that would work better in the kitchen then this big dining room set.
I was glad my son got over also. He said he would come back over this weekend also. So gonna make a list of things for him to take care of again. He leaves in less than 3 weeks to move to New York City.
I keep trying to get tougher skin but it has not happened yet. So glad you had a good time yesterday. My goal is always to get to bed before 10 pm.. but it does not happen much since Tom died. Hope you had a good day today.

Sandra guess you are still on your vacation.. Hope your doing well.

Have a good night.. Pleasant dreams. Will catch you tomorrow.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Sorry for all the rain and humidity you're going through, Dottie. Hope things improve for you soon.
Glad your son was able to come over and fix a couple of things for you. Congrats on being able to sell the mower and the table and chairs. That's great. Hope you are able to sell the snow blower as well.

I will be able to figure out how to do the purl stitch. If worse comes to worse I can ask my friend to show me. I will try it myself first, though. Yes, I agree I need to get tougher skin. I am very easily hurt. I am a very emotional person. I cry at the drop of a hat.

My friend and I had a wonderful time today. The weather was nice. It wasn't too hot and it didn't rain. I thought it was going to rain for a while, but the wind blew the clouds away. It did turn cool this evening. We expected that though. We got a lot of good bargains and had a lot of fun. We always have so much fun together. We have so much in common.

Boy, I don't remember what it feels like to go to bed before 10:00 pm. I haven't done that in years. I'm lucky if I get to sleep before 1:00 or 2:00 am. I think I am going to go and try to get some sleep though. I was up early, and I was gone all day, so I'm quite tired.

I'll drop by tomorrow after Bible Study. Have a good night.

Darlene

Hello Ladies. Today was sunny and very warm. 82 degrees and humid.. Just to early for this. We have rain in the forecast everyday this week. Highs in the upper 70's and low 80's.. After church did a few loads of laundry. Son came over and finished the trim finally and got the light fixture fixed. Then he was going to put a hitch on his car but did not bring the directions with him so he was unable to do that. I asked him about sawing off the 2x4's and he said he could do that next weekend when he comes over. Then the guy I have been chatting with on FB came by and looked at the mower and bought it.. Yeah!! He gave me 200 tonight and he will give me the other 200 next Monday and he bought the table and chairs.. Yeah!! He is giving me 200 for that. I was asking 500 for the mower and 200 for the table. He said he'd give me 400 for the mower I took it.. Figured that was better than letting it sit in my driveway and waiting on someone else to come by and maybe not even want to give me that. He did agree to the full price for the table so I figured that was good.. Some of this will go in my moving fund and a little bit will go in the checkbook to cover groceries for the week. Yay!!! Now if I could just sell the snow blower...

Darlene yes it was nice having my blood work done with no bruising on my arm. She was still rude about it but maybe that is her nature. Sorry that the lady that was to teach you some new things at your knitting club was not there. Hope you are able to figure it out. Hand warmers sound nice. I understand feeling self-conscious.. about things.. believe me whenever I am not sure what to do I am the same way. My grown kids laugh about it and I feel like a dummy. Guess we just need to get tougher skin... emoticon WooHoo on the laundry. Hope you had a fun day with your friend after church today.

I think I will sign off and get the dishes done so I can get to bed before 10pm. Will get back by here sometime tomorrow. Have a good night with pleasant dreams. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello Ladies

Sorry I didn't get here last night. Just couldn't keep my eyes open.

Dottie, glad you were able to get your blood work done and that the right size needle was used. Glad the kids didn't have to play their games in the rain. That egg scramble sounds delicious. I know you have a lot of things going on. I am hoping and praying things go well for you and the sale with go through.

I did get to knitting club yesterday, but the lady who was supposed to come and teach us some new things didn't show up. No, I didn't learn how to purl, but I do have some instructions that teach you, so I'm going to try it on my own and once I get it right I am going to try to make a pair of hand warmers (fingerless gloves). My friend found a pattern for them on one of her balls of yarn. She actually found two patterns, so she gave me one. Once I am able to purl I will try to knit them. I will get my friend to show me how to sew them together. It should be interesting. I sometimes feel self-conscious when trying something new, especially in knitting. I just feel so dumb. The others laugh at my mistakes, which makes me feel worse. I know they don't mean to hurt me, but I guess I am just too sensitive.

Got my laundry done today. I am going to the early service at church tomorrow. My friend is picking me up, and then we are going shopping after church. it should be a fun day.

Well, I'd better try to get to bed a little early tonight. I'll drop by tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Good evening ladies. Just a quick pop in.. It did not rain like last week at the games we did have a few sprinkles but nothing soaking. It remained cloudy and cool for both games. Boys had team pictures today. Youngest GS team lost today. 19-12. The 2 touchdowns they had were scored by him. He told me he was okay with the loss as the team they played had shut out their opponents the first two games. Oldest GS his team won again today 30-12. It was 2 very good games today. Came home and had egg sandwiches for lunch. Well the kids did.. I had an egg scramble.. put some red peppers, onions, celery, spinach, some leftover ground turkey from last night.. Then topped it with tomatoes and some salsa and avocado.
Then about 3:30 we went to my daughter's youngest daughters graduation party. Won't stay very long since they don't have anything to do with us any other time. And only going because my ex is going to take us. That is really the only reason I am going. I don't like to drive after dark and with it being cloudy sure it won't be long before that happens. We got home about 6:30. Ex stopped at Sonic and got the kids a shake.

Hope that everyone had a good Saturday. Kids are finishing up showers then we will say prayers. Will try to catch you all tomorrow. Have a good evening.

Good evening ladies. Well I stopped here on Spark about an hour ago maybe a little longer. I am sitting in my chair. Well I just woke up.. Yep I fell asleep.. Here it is almost 10:30 and I missed Blue Bloods.. Have both Hawaii Five-O and Blue Bloods set to record each week. (thank goodness) The shows I watch are all winding up. Most of them only have a couple weeks left of he season. Scorpion already had its season finale 2 weeks ago. :(

Anyway did not say prayers and get kids to bed till 8 so I decided I would catch Five-O later and just watch Blue Bloods.. ha ha ha ... I fell asleep. Must have been from lack of blood.. I went over and had my blood work this morning.. 5 tubes of blood they took. Oh and the same lady was there that did it the last time. I noticed the other lady that is usually there was gone today. So I just out right told her she needed to use a small needle and not a large one. Told her she left a bruise on my arm last time that lasted 2 weeks.. She said no the other lady must have done you last time... No it was you. So then she was saying she had so many tubes to do that she did not think she would be able to get them all with the little needle... Guess what she did and she could have gotten more if needed. And one more thing you can't even tell where she stuck me!!! Her attitude was not much better today but least ways she did not use a regullar size needle and had no problem. I know that she is a trained plebotamist. But I still know my body better than she does. Any way after I was done there I went to the Van and ate the banana, strawberries and grapes I had brought along. Then swung by the house and got my gas can. Went to sprouts and got a few things that were only on sale today and tomorrow then on to walmart.. wanted to find oldest GS a pr of sneakers to finish out the last 15 days of school. His other ones the tread has worn thin and he has problems on the gym floor with them.. He actually has a scrap on his knee from where he fell during gym class because of them. Told him I would get him another pr and when school was over he could put them up to start next year with. He is going into a size 7.. Could not find a single pr of size 7's.. every other size 7 and a half and up.. Guess I am going to have to go to Payless. The boys will need Sandals for church this summer too. UGH!!! They are just growing to fast... Think youngest may be able to wear his brothers sandals from last year. So only thing I got at W-mart today was some dog treats for Remmy. Went over to HyVee and got some groceries and got my fuel saver cents up to 1,22. So I paid 97.9 cents a gal for gas. I got about 13 and 1/2 gals of gas.. 2 gals went into the gas can. That was all I could pick up other wise the can would have been to heavy. Came home ate a piece of leftover chicken. Put away the groceries. started some laundry and figured my bills. Will be glad when MO gets there act together and gets the paperwork processed and I start getting support from the kids day again. Only getting from their Mom right now and it really does make a difference. Especially when they are needing things. Oh well it will all work out. Just really tight right now. This month is really going to be busy.. with things going on at school and trying to clean and pack. Praying my ex does not back out of this contract.


Darlene glad that you had a good pot luck. Hope you had a good day today at your knitting club.. Did you learn to purl today. Temps here are getting warmer also. Supposed to be 80's on Sunday. But rain all next week. Well it is late. And in fact the clock has changed to Sat. Have football pictures and games tomorrow. But at least they only have one game each.


Hope you have a good night. Sleep well.

Hello Ladies

Glad you were able to return the old battery today. Sorry to hear you weren't able to get any work done on the basement or garage. Hope you are able to get what you want for your house.

We had a great pot luck this evening. It was just a snack pot luck, but there was so much food there that I am still stuffed. I ate a late lunch today. I shouldn't have eaten anything. We had meat balls and sausage rolls, fruit, vegetables chips and dips as well as cake and cookies. I ended up bringing home more than I went with. I can't imagine how much food would have been there had we had a real pot luck. One of the ladies got her husband to come in with her, and he took pictures of all of us together. We had given Esther a lovely picture frame as a gift, and we wanted her to have a special picture to put in it. One of the other ladies took the camera home and she is going to print out the pictures for us. She is going to give each of us a picture. She forgot the cord for her printer, or she would have been able to print them all tonight. We didn't have a bible study, we just chatted and ate, and ate, and ate. Oh well, it doesn't happen very often.

I am going to the knitting club tomorrow. One of the ladies is coming to show us how to read a pattern. That will be good. maybe I'll learn to make something other than squares for a baby blanket. I can make toques and scarves, but I use a loom for that. I want to learn how to purl, then I can knit a scarf by hand rather than having to use the loom. I'll see what happens tomorrow.

Well, I think I will head for bed as well. The heat always makes me tired. I was planning on doing some cleaning tomorrow, but I will have to wait for Saturday for that. I need to do some laundry as well. At least it is warm enough for my short pants so I don't have to wear a toga (lol). Chat with you again tomorrow. Have a good night.

Hello Ladies. Today I took back the old battery and get my core charge back. emoticon Then went to HyVee instead of Aldi's for almond milk. They had it on sale. I picked up part of my groceries today. SInce tomorrow I won't get over there until maybe 11am. Depends how long I need to wait. Anyway got home made me a salad after I put away the groceries. Then I got a couple calls and never did get to the basement or garage. Not sure how much I will get done tomorrow either. Sometime in May the VA Loan Co will have an appraiser out here. Just hope it appraises for what I am selling it for.. even more would be nice. emoticon
Will need to get by HyVee tomorrow as I will need gas. Don't have a lot of fuel saver cents this time but maybe I can get more tomorrow. I will also have to swing by the house and grab the gas can as I need a little more gas for the push mower. Looks like will need to start mowing every week.

Darlene I hate when that happens because then I have a hard time remembering what I had said.. emoticon Glad that your physio went well. Also that you figured out why you shoulder was sore. I have not been on a retreat. Of course now with Tom gone probably wouldn't be able to go on one till kids are all grown. emoticon I understand about the pharmacy. Sounds like you have lots of benefits there. I just recently changed the kids scripts from Walmart to HyVee.. Seems every month I would have some problem with walmart. Just got tired of it. Hope you had a good time at your pot luck and emoticon study

Sandra you are probably making last minute preparations for your trip. Hope it is a good one and you have a nice time. emoticon

Time for me to go to bed. I am tired and I did not do a lot today.. Maybe the previous days are catching up to me.. emoticon

Just lost everything I had typed. I have to re-do everything. Oh well.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Dottie, sounds like you were extra busy. Wow! You sure got a lot accomplished. Glad you were able to get a new battery for the Riding Lawn Mower. Hope you manage to sell it. Glad you were able to stop and have a bite to eat at lunch time. You even managed to get your lawn cut. You sure got your exercise in today.

Yes I had an awesome weekend at our Retreat. I always look forward to it. I will think of the retreat every time I use my new mug.

My physio went well today. I was trying to figure out why my shoulder was so sore. I didn't think I had done anything differently, and the weather has been beautiful. Then when I was talking to my Physiotherapist I remembered that I had been sleeping in a lower bunk bed and they are very low. I had to use the ladder with my left hand to get up. As well, the couches are very low. I had to use both arms to get out of the couches and chairs. Now I understand why both shoulders are sore. Other than that, physio went well.

I went grocery shopping this afternoon. I haven't been for a big shop for a long time, so I needed quite a bit. I managed to fill up the cart my friend gave me. I missed a couple of things as I couldn't find them, and I was running out of time. I think I will go to Wal Mart tomorrow, or maybe to Superstore which is right beside Wal Mart and get the items I missed.

I could move my prescriptions to a nearby pharmacy, but I like the Pharmacists there. They are so helpful with extra information. They will also deliver if I have the prescription in there. However, I usually get 3 months at a time so I just have to go once every 3 months. They also give me a 25% discount on items I buy such as Aspirin, etc. I also enjoy going to the nearby mall after I pick up my prescriptions.

Hope your blood work results come out well. I think I will head for bed. I'll drop by after my Bible Study tomorrow. We are having a snack pot luck tomorrow as a celebration for our teacher who just graduated from her course to be a Chaplain. It should be fun. Talk to you tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Hello Ladies.. So sorry I did not make it here yesterday. Got busy working in garage after taking the signed contract to the title office, I did not stop till time for kids to be home. I put some chicken in the slow cooker yesterday for dinner and made chicken and rice.

In my garage I moved the freezer over toward the basement door since we brought up the fridge it did not need to be so far over. Then when we had removed the wall in the basement Tom just sat it against the one garage door that we did not use. Then we had a smaller section he had sat up just inside the other door. These both were going to be part of the room we were going to make in the garage. Anyway I was going to swing the frame away from the garage door and sit it along the wall between the freezer and the door.. emoticon Well it was just a little to long.. So instead I knocked the paneling off the frame and put it against the wall with the other pieces we had there moved the frame outside to be taken apart and moved the single framed section over to the wall to help balance the other panels against the wall. emoticon Yep a lot of moving stuff. Not done though.. There is a wooden shelf that we moved from the basement to the garage. It originally was going to sit against the new wall we were going to build so we had it in the middle of the garage. After Tom passed away I moved it over in front of some built in shelving. Well I think I am going to cut the top of the 2X4 off and then it will slide under the one of the shelves against the back wall. So just gotta get Tom's saw out and zap it. emoticon Also found out the riding mower battery was dead and it would not recharge. Told the guy that was interested in it I would have to get new battery. emoticon

Today after getting kids off to school I went over to Sprouts last day for grapes at 98 cents a pound. Plus Avocado's were on sale 3 for 1.00. I got 4 lbs of emoticon and 6 avocadoes. Was proud of myself for restraining buying all the other produce I needed. emoticon Went to Hyvee gas store and got me some coffee then straight over to walmart for the battery for the mower. Course my mower needed the more expensive battery emoticon and I need to take the old battery back to get my core charge back... 12.00 now for a core charge. I can remember when it was 3.00... Anyway got home and called ex told him I was home and he came over and connected the battery and started the mower and moved it over by the garage. He also aired up the tires. I sent a message to the guy interested in it. So hopefully he will get back to me when he gets off work. emoticon
I got home and started emoticon . Stopped while ex was here working on the riding mower. But got right back at it as soon as he left. I came inside and sat down... Was to tired to fix lunch so a little bit ago I fixed me a sandwich. 2 slices of Ezekiel Bread some nitrate free ham and turkey with lettuce and tomato and a couple slices of my red beet egg. Pretty tasty. emoticon Now just relaxing. Kids will be home soon.

Darlene enjoyed reading about your weekend. Sounds like a wonderful time and you even came home with some goodies. That is. emoticon I need to find me a good lasagna recipe.. The kids have asked me for it but I don't care for the cheese. I bet you will enjoy your tea. emoticon I got something like that one time and it was really good. Glad that you have had a couple quiet days and that you were able to get your scripts. Is there not a pharmacy close to you that you could transfer your scripts too. Hope your Physio goes well today. And I will pray that the medicine takes care of that sinus infection.. How neat about the shopping cart. Have been debating about keeping or selling mine.. It is like new. We used in once or twice on a camping trip. emoticon

Sandra you are probably busy getting ready for your trip. emoticon Hope your having a good day today. I am trying to take things one day at a time but my mind keeps running off to the next day or even to things that are further down the road. emoticon Packing has not been going to smoothly.. I still have not tackled the workshop. I know I need to do that. Was thinking about starting tomorrow but need to run to walmart to get my dollars back so not sure.. I also need to go to Aldi's tomorrow to get some Almond milk. Kids prefer it now to cows milk. They said they feel better. Friday I need to go over to Independence to the VA and get my bloodwork done. emoticon Praying that all that I have been doing will result in lower numbers and maybe lower meds.
Yes I am glad that we will be able to chat. Course when I get to PA will have to see what my internet options are. They do not have Time Warner Cable.. only Comcast and then Dish or Direct TV satellite. So that is a future thing to take care of.. My friend back there said Comcast pricing is getting expensive. so we will see.

Well ladies in roughly 20 minutes the munchkins will be home well the 2 older ones anyway So I am going to post this and then get busy putting dinner on the stove.
Have a nice evening. Try to catch you tomorrow.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're doing well.

Yes, Sandra, I had a wonderful weekend. I was so blessed to be there. Thanks for not minding my rambling. I always feel so excited and want to share things. Sometimes we just need to take a day off.

Dottie, hope things are going well for you. I understand why you're feeling overwhelmed. Sandra's idea of taking things one day at a time and asking God to help you sounds like a wonderful idea. I'm praying that you are able to get all you need done. We'll be praying for you and will be here to listen when you need to vent.

I had a quiet day again today. I had to go to to pick up my prescriptions. Unfortunately, my pharmacy is on the other side of town. It takes 2 or 3 buses to get there, depending on the way I go. I didn't get home until after 6:00 pm. I was exhausted. I had to wait quite a while for them to fill my prescriptions. I had two more than I normally do. Hopefully this prescription for my sinus problem will help. It already feels like it is doing more for me than any of the other medications or nasal sprays that my doctor prescribed for me. It is loosening up the congestion. I only took one pill so far, and it has already started to work. Hopefully after 10 days my sinus infection will be totally gone.

I'm going for physio tomorrow. Then I'm taking the shuttle to go grocery shopping in the afternoon.
I got a blessing to day. My friend upstairs called me about picking up the lasagna she had made. She also told me she had told our shuttle driver that she wanted to have a new shopping cart put together and she needed to find someone to do it for her. She was willing to pay to have it done. Tim told her he would do it for nothing because she gives him food once in a while when she prepares meals for the church. She gave me her old cart and the liner for it. It is still in very good shape. They cost about $40 to purchase. What a blessing.

Well, hope you both have a good night. I'll drop by again tomorrow.

Darlene

Don't worry about talking Darlene, we love it! It sounds like you had a wonderful time and a great worship experience. I understand being tired. Sounds like we both needed to do nothing.
Dottie, when I got overwhelmed trying to sell my stuff, I just took it one day at a time. Plan what you need to do that day and pray about it and God will provide the buyers and pretty soon you will see how He took you through one step at a time. It's awesome. But still tiring. I know from what you have shared this is the right move for you all. But it's easy to wonder and worry sometimes. The hard part will be packing and cleaning but once you are settled in PA hopefully the rest will go easier. I never like finding new doctors. So glad the internet will still be available so you can always have us to chat with.
Glad you are both doing ok. Have a good day ladies.

Hello Ladies. Sorry I didn't get back on here last night. Just too tired.

Dottie, I see you were very busy this weekend again. I can understand that you're feeling overwhelmed thinking of all you have to do regarding your move. Glad to hear you may be able to sell your mower and snow blower. Hope you are able to sell your table as well. I'm sure it must be stressful with all that's going on. Hope everything goes well for you. Glad to hear you're getting some sunshine after all that rain.

Sandra, glad you were able to sell a lot of your things at your garage sale this weekend. Giving the rest away sounds like a good idea. It is good that you were able to have a day of rest today. I'm sure you needed it after all you had to do. Hope you have a safe trip. Hope your knee doesn't give you too many problems. It is good that your sister will look after Sadie for you. At least you know she will be taken care of properly. I am sure you will miss her.

I had a fantastic weekend. The weather was wonderful. There was lots and lots of sunshine. It was so peaceful by the lake. I just felt so blessed to have this time away. I didn't get any sleep the first night due to a bad back. The beds are not the greatest. I forgot to take my Tylenol Night-Time pills. Saturday night one of the ladies gave me a T3 and it helped with the pain and I was able to get a fairly good night's rest. The teachings were wonderful and we always have such great worship times. The theme of the weekend was "Jesus Is Our All in All". The ladies who put together the weekend provided a lovely picture frame with the main theme words of the weekend as a keepsake, and our speaker gave us a laminated copy of a prayer she had prayed many years ago and written in her diary. Some of the teachings she did were on the prayer. It is a lovely keepsake. Another of the ladies made earrings for everyone. They had several drawings at every meal time, and I won one of them. It was a lovely big mug with different types of tea. I will think of this weekend every time I have a nice warm mug of tea. I was so blessed. Today I didn't do anything. I guess I was overtired. I just couldn't wake up today. I got up and got dressed and fixed my breakfast. I sat down to read the paper while I ate, and the next thing I knew it was 1:00 pm and my breakfast was still sitting there. I had managed to drink most of my coffee. I decided that I would just take the rest of the day and relax and tomorrow I will do what I need to do. I do need to go and pick up my medications. My friend upstairs had asked me to stop by as she had made some lasagna. However, she fell asleep so I wasn't able to get it. She called me later when she woke up and apologized. I told her I would go tomorrow and get some lasagna for supper.

Boy, it's not good when I go away for awhile. When I come back I can't stop talking (lol). I'll stop by again tomorrow. Hope you both have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Hi Sandra. Yes it was quiet but that is okay. My weekend was busy also. Glad that you sold a lot of stuff. Yes I can understand how you would find it hard to let go of those things. Will pray for a safe trip to NC. Sorry you have to leave Sadie behind. Wow sounds like you have a lot to do this summer. I will be kinda busy myself trying to get resettled in a new house again. Will need to the kids on medical assistance and get them set up with doctors and dentists and eye doctors. Somewhere in there I will need to get hold of the VA there to transfer my medical care.. When I think of everything it is almost to much and I have to wonder if this is the right thing to do. But then after a while I know it is. The kids will be happier and around family that cares what is going on and believes in getting together and checking on each other.
I have to go to the title company tomorrow. Lady there is going to check over the papers I filled out and my ex signed. Plus I may have a buyer for the mower and snow blower. WooHoo... Also the dining room set. That would be awesome. Those are the 3 biggest things I have to sell. Not comfortable with the riding mower and the snowblower is to big for me to handle. GD does okay with it but she won't always be around. She is going to be 15 this year.
Well we opposite weather. Our Sat was a wet one.. Rained all day. Then Sunday was not to bad it was dry but a little windy. Today was sunny and this whole week is to be sunny till Sat again.
Glad you took a day to just do whatever.

Darlene hope your resting from your weekend. If they are like Moms you don't get a lot of sleep.

Have a good night ladies. Try to get back tomorrow. I think things are going to start getting busy for me.

Sorry it was kind of quiet here for you Dottie. I did have my sale on Saturday, the weather was perfect and I got lots sold. The rest we took to Goodwill as I don't want to mess with it anymore. I spent all day Friday and Saturday working on this and the 2 months before packing it and sorting it so I was plenty ready to be finished. It was a little hard emotionally to let go of the past 21 years but I keep praying for strength and I know I am not in shape to keep doing the job and the kids I enjoyed so much are grown now anyway. On to new and better things with God's help.

Saturday we are headed to North Carolina by car to take a load of stuff down for Jeff's sister. Mostly things of their mom's we took out of the house before it sold. She passed away several years ago. I might look forward to it more if I didn't have to leave Sadie and my knee was in better shape. I normally like to travel but it will be hard to sit that long. My twin will keep Sadie and I know she will do o.k. but I will miss her terribly and worry about her.

After this trip I think it will be a quiet summer. At least I hope so. We will paint and carpet our new office and clean our bedroom and rearrange a little after we take the computer and filing cabinets out. Till the garden and plant, remove some juniper bushes in the front of the house. Of course, by then it will start to get hot and the bugs will be nasty. So I won't want to garden much by July. It always sounds like such a good idea in the winter and spring and of course, it's great at harvest time.

I'm being absolutely lazy today. Sat was beautiful but it rained all day Sunday and it's overcast and gloomy today. I worked so hard on the sale and yesterday I did laundry and dishes so I feel I earned a day off. Think I will read and play computer games unless I find something constructive to do. Oh, I can work on my sock. I don't think I'm ever going to finish it but I keep plugging away at it every now and then and I will.
Well, I guess that about does it for now. I'll try to keep you company for a few days and then I'll be gone for about a week.

Just a pop in before I go to bed. Had my GD and my ex over for spaghetti dinner tonight. GD leaves Tues after noon for her move. She is going to visit some friends in Iowa and then go on to TX. So we had here a good bye dinner.. she requested the spaghetti. I made some meatballs and salad to go with it.

Hope everyone has had a good day.

Darlene hope your weekend was refreshing.

Sandra did you get all your things sold over the weekend.

Have a good night ladies.

Hello ladies

Had a very wet day. Everything is sitting in the garage drying out. Umbrella's and chairs. Shoes are stuffed with newspaper. Boys had their first 2 games today. Youngest had his at 10 and 1 and the oldest was at 11 and 2. I packed a cooler with stuff to make sandwiches and had some apples and oranges. Also some sesame sticks. So we ate lunch at the van. Now the rest of the season they just have single games and they will be at 10 and 11. It rained all day and got windy and cold. Winds coming from the NE.. We survived. Made Chili for dinner and when we got home made kids all take hot showers.

Sandra hope you were able to have your yard sale and it was a success.

Darlene hope your having a good time at your retreat. Be refreshed.

Well going to get my shower and put some heat on my knee. It has been bothering me a couple days now.

Have a good night. Will try to get back tomorrow.

Just dropping by to say a quick hello.

Glad you were able to get your GS;s room done today. Good for you for getting in your exercise as well.

I am pretty well all packed. Just have to throw my pills, etc., in my bag in the morning. I am so looking forward to this weekend. I think I will try to get a good night's sleep. I don't usually sleep too much during the retreat. My friend and I always go to bed late, and we are up early in the morning. So happy to know that is going to be a lovely weekend. God is taking care of us.

Have a wonderful weekend. I will drop by Sunday night.

Hi Darlene.. It is past my bedtime but wanted to stop by here. I got the boys room done today. It did not take me nearly as long as it did to do GD room yesterday. But I got a late start because I was listening to a health summit online.. and doing my walking DVD. Made a Strawberry Coconut blast this morning for breakfast. Found a couple new recipes but will need to get a couple things to try them.
Boys had practice tonight so I made them pizza for dinner.. No fuss No mess!!
I ate a piece of chicken I had left a couple slices of Ezekiel Bread and an apple.

Glad that physio is going well and you are starting to get more movement in your arm.. Hope you have a good weekend at your retreat. Will miss you while you are gone. I like both those colors but I think I have more blue things right now. Good you will have nice weather. Cool that you could help your son out.

Well it is off to bed I go. Hope you have a good nights rest.

Hello Ladies

It was cool here today as well. 6 C or 43 F. That was the high. It was sunny, but we have been having a lot of wind. I did some laundry today as well. I am almost all packed up. I made myself a list and I am going to go through everything and check it off to make sure I don't forget anything. I will need my bible tomorrow night for bible study, so I will pack that when I get home. I have pretty well everything that I need. My friend and I are going to co-ordinate what we are wearing. That is the lady that I go shopping with all the time. We have a lot of the same clothes, only in different colours. She likes blue, and I like purple. I am so looking forward to getting away this weekend. It looks like it will be fairly nice. There is not supposed to be any rain. It should be in the 50's anyway on Saturday and Sunday. Next week is supposed to be even warmer. I hope it stays that way this time.

My physio is going quite well. The Therapist measured my arm and I have improved quite a bit. I can lift my arm better and move it further than I could before. She gave me a couple of new exercises to add to what I am doing. I am gaining a lot of strength in my arm.

My son stopped by this evening. He forgot his wallet at home and needed gas for his truck to be able to get home. I felt sorry for him, as he couldn't even buy himself lunch. He didn't call me until he was getting ready to go home after work. He said he would drop by tomorrow after work and give me the money back. I'm always teasing him and asking him what he would do without mom.
I don't mind helping him out once in a while. We all need a little help once in a while.

Well, I think I will finish packing some of the clothes I need to pack and go and rest for a while.
I'll drop by again tomorrow, and then I probably won't be on until Sunday. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Hello ladies

Today we had sunshine but cool temps. Think it got to 56 this afternoon. It was 35 this morning. Think that is where our morning temp tomorrow is to be. Did my Weds load of darks. Have to do that load mid week because there is so much dark stuff and oldest GS only has 4 pr of school jeans left. Soon will be time to switch to shorts so not to worried. I also did 1 mile of my walking DVD. Then I spent the rest of the day cleaning GD room. Tomorrow is some more cleaning. The boys room.. It is not as bad as their sisters so hopefully I can get in and do my room also. Have some stuff that needs to go downstairs but have not wanted to take it down till the sanding and painting was done.
Fixed salmon, roasted potatoes and peas for dinner.

Darlene I think you are right about the weather affecting how we feel. Hope you have everything you will need for your retreat. And were able to get it all packed today. My Mom's retreat is this weekend also. She told me they just found out they have snow up where they are going. Hope your physio and doctor appt. went well today. Doing early is a good idea. That way you don't forget something.

Sandra hope you had a good day and are getting things finished for your yard sale.

Ladies going to shut off the lights and go to bed. Still need to let Remmy out.

Have a good night. Sweet dreams.

Hello Ladies

Dottie, glad to hear you're feeling better. I am sure this crazy weather is not helping with all the flu bugs, etc., going around. It is not going to be very warm here over the next few days either. It is not supposed to warm up until Sunday. Hopefully we won't get any more snow. At least the sun is supposed to be shining for the rest of the week. Sandra, hope you were able to get your walk in today. It is nice that you will be able to plant some flowers in your yard.

I am busy trying to get things ready to go to the retreat. My friend called me today as she had to go out and buy a few things. She asked if I wanted to go with her. I had a couple of things to buy, so I went. I just have to get everything packed up. I will do that tomorrow when I get back from my physio and doctor's appointment. I need to make a check-list to make sure I have everything. I like to get it done early, then I don't have to rush at the last minute.

Hope you both have a good night's rest. I'll pop by again tomorrow.

Darlene

Hello Ladies.. Well felt a little better today. Got the living room dusted and vacuumed. Vacuumed down the hallway also. Did not do the whole hallway cause the cord would not stretch that far and did not feel like plugging it in to a different spot. Have my apple cinnamon candle burning right now. It has been burning all afternoon. Fixed leftovers for dinner tonight. Had several different things. Still have some green beans and some hot dogs left. Think I will cut the dogs up and make beanie weenies tomorrow. Still trying to get things done to sell house. Working on paperwork. Ex is trying to figure out how to come up with closing costs. Seems like get through one thing and something else comes up.

Darlene glad you were able to get the church bus to church on Sunday. Our weather is unsettled here too. we are to drop down in the 30's the next couple nights. Tomorrow only to get in the upper 50's.. I don't think we will have any more snow hope your snowy stuff is over. We are to have rain again this weekend. The boys have actual games this Saturday. 10 and 11 also 1 and 2. Yep it is a double header. They will play as long as it is just rain. I recorded the awards also. I can watch it on Weds night when there is nothing else on TV.
Hope you have a nice time at retreat. I think my Mom has a retreat this weekend also.

Sandra think the rain is everywhere. Will be nice when we can have a few days in a row of no rain so the water can soak into the ground and things dry a bit. I have a mud lake in my yard. It is crazy.. I hope that all goes well with your yard sale this weekend. I know it takes a lot of time to do all the pricing. Did you get your walking in today? I did my walking dvd this morning. WooHoo on the weight loss. I did not get the book. I did look at it for my Kindle but decided if I get it I would want the printed version. Think it would be easier to use. Maybe you could plant some perennials. That is what I planted in my little garden out back. They come back every year and don't need a lot of work. I have mostly asiatic lilies. Tom liked them because they were different.

Thank you ladies for your prayers.

Have a good night and I will try to get back tomorrow.

Ugh, snow. I hope we don't get any more. The sun is out and it's supposed to be in the 60s. Depends on the wind whether that will be warm or not. I did not make my walk yesterday due to the wind. It was just too cold! But I need to get moving. Don't have much going on today and I'm feeling restless. There are things to do but I can't do them until the end of the week. I like and need to stay busy. I'll pray that Dottie is feeling better. She has a lot on her plate right now. Hope you both have a good day.

Hello Ladies

Dottie, sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Hope you're better very soon.

Sandra, it's good to hear from you. I guess you are having a pretty busy week getting ready for that garage sale. I'm glad you have some help. Hope you manage to get rid of everything.
Glad to hear your knee is doing well. Congrats. on the weight loss. I forgot about that book. I have been so busy. I will check it out next week and see if I can find a copy of it. Thanks for the reminder.
Eating more veggies and exercising will help you lose more weight. Let me know how things go following that plan.

I woke up to snow this morning. We didn't really get all that much, but it snowed for quite a while today. It was cold and windy as well. Hopefully the weather will improve.

I enjoyed a nice luncheon with my in-laws today. I also had a chiropractor's appointment and then Women's Bible Study tonight. I am very tired. I am going to go to bed very soon.

I'll drop by again tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Hi. We had rain too last week. It was nice but it's been cold. Supposed to be a little warmer this week with more chance for rain later on. We put the garage sale off till this weekend so we could attend a funeral Saturday and go to Cheyenne to pick up more tables for church from Sam's Club. We put them in our garage and will use them for the sale before taking them to church. This way we won't have to drag them up from the church basement. I am praying for a nice day Saturday so people will come and I can get rid of lots of stuff. We had planned on driving to North Carolina first week of May but we may not go due to some conflicts. I am dreading that long drive with my knee the way it is. I do think it's a tiny bit better, seems like the walking I got to do before the rain really helped. I am planning to get out there this afternoon even though it's chilly. The end of the week will be busy as I have to price everything and set it out on the tables. I am so happy my sister will help me. Then right when we get back from our trip, it's graduation. We know 3 kids graduating, one is our nephew, my twin's youngest son. So we have 3 receptions to go to. Then it's Mother's Day. May is always so crazy. After that I think things will settle down for us and I hope I can enjoy my yard and garden. We need to pull out our juniper bushes in front of our house. They got kind of winter killed from the foot of snow that was on them and they are old, probably nearing the end of their time. They smell so good when Jeff trims them but they are so prickly and they prevent me from using the water faucet so I have to drag the hose from the backyard to the front to water my flowers and that's a real pain. I love flowers but I don't know how I will take care of them since I can't kneel or bend very well. I can still water them I guess. I will have to hoe the weeds since I can't get down too good. I really miss being able to do those things. Getting things out of the bottom cabinets in the kitchen is almost impossible now and it frustrates me. But I thank the Lord that I can walk.

I'm still following the Spiritual Secrets to Weight Loss. I've been at this over a month and I have lost 7 pounds. I got some fresh veggies so that might help me lose more. Getting out of the house and walking does too. Did either of you get that book? I see Amazon has it really cheap in paperback. It's $10 on Kindle. I got mine free, hopefully they will offer it free again but I don't know. I'm trying to get my sister a copy. It got really good reviews and I know it is working for me.

Well, it's almost lunchtime and I need to clean out the litter box. Oh joy.

Hello Dottie

Sorry to hear your son didn't make it again today. Hope is able to come by soon. Glad to hear your team won again today.

Yes, I did go to church. I took the church bus this morning. Yes, we got our rain. It rained off and on all day. It was a cold rain. It wasn't a very nice day to be out. We did need the rain though. The ground is very dry and there is a lot of sand and gravel on the roads that raises a lot of dust when it is windy. Don't know what the weather is going to be like tomorrow. It is supposed to be cooler all week. I was hoping it would warm up for the weekend when we go on our retreat.

I managed to get my laundry done today. My friend from upstairs insisted on coming and helping me. After church she took me up to her suite for lunch of barbequed ribs and oven roasted potatoes. Then we went and did the laundry. When we brought the laundry back to my suite she swept and washed my floors for me. She is such a sweetheart. I spent the evening trying to watch the Country Music Awards, but one of my friends from church phoned, and we ended up spending over 2 hours on the phone. It's a good thing I taped the show so I can watch it again. I won't watch it until next week, though, as I am sure she will be calling me again once or twice before Friday. She is so excited about going to the retreat. She probably won't sleep much Thursday night and she will be all ready to go by about 8:00 am. We're not leaving until around noon, though. We stop for supper at a restaurant near the lodge we go to. The camp gives us a snack on Friday evening, but not supper. We get 3 meals and a snack on Saturday and 2 meals on Sunday. I am so looking forward to it.

I'm going to lunch with my in-laws tomorrow, then I have a chiropractic appointment, then I have our Women's Bible Study tomorrow night. It is a busy day for me, and I won't be able to get much done.

Sandra, hope everything is going well for you.

Well, I think I'll try to get to bed a little early again. This rain has brought on a sinus headache again. I don't know if I'll have time to make a doctor's appointment this week. I may have to wait until next week. We'll see how things go. If I can get in on Wednesday it will be good. I have physio that day, and my doctor is just a couple of blocks from the hospital. Maybe I can get an appointment for around 12:30 and then I would be able to kill two birds with one stone.

Well, I'll try and drop back tomorrow after bible study. Have a good night's rest.

Hello Darlene.. Glad you had a good day yesterday with family and friends.
Did you get your rain today? We had almost an inch of rain yesterday. Did not look at the rain gauge to see what we got overnight last night into this morning. It stayed cloudy all day but dry. Think they said we still had a chance overnight for some more rain.

Did you make it to church today? Son did not make it over today to finish the trim. But it was not his fault. He was going to come over after his daughter got home from visiting with her other grandparents. They had told him they would bring her home at 2. They did not get her home till 5:30. He was not a happy camper. He had tried to call them and to text them but they did not answer. I had planned on goulash for supper so I went ahead and made that.
I think I am going to try for an early bedtime tonight. I am a little tired. Royals won today. made my GD who is moving to TX happy. Her Grandpa had taken her to the game.

Sandra how did your yard sale go this weekend? Hope you were able to sale a lot of your stuff.

I hope you both have a good night and may you have pleasant dreams

Hello Dottie.

Sorry to hear you had so much rain. It is good the the practices were cancelled, though, because of the lightning. I can imagine it was hard driving in all that rain. Hope you don't get too much rain. Glad you were able to get all your laundry done.

I had a fairly quiet day. My son and DIL picked me up to take me to the Foody Goody restaurant for supper. My DIL's mother was there with a couple of other friends. My ex and his wife were there as well as my youngest son. We had a nice meal and a nice time chatting. My son drove me around to one of the houses we used to live in many years ago. It was nice to drive around the old neighborhood and see the changes that have been made over the years. Not too much has changed, really. He and my DIL are so happy with their new car that they wanted to drive around a little. We took the long way back to my place. They were going home to the continuation of the birthday party at their place. People were going over for visiting and some drinks. I decided I would rather come home. I wouldn't have been able to get home after everyone had a few drinks. It would cost me about $30 to come home in a cab. I want to go to church tomorrow, so I am happy to be home. I am going to take the church bus to church tomorrow. We are supposed to get some rain tomorrow. Not sure how much or when. I need to do some laundry tomorrow as well. I want to clean up a few things before I go away next weekend. It's always nice to come back to a clean house and not have to worry about doing anything when you get home.

Well, I'll drop by again tomorrow. Hope you have a good night's rest.

Hello Darlene

Well it rained most of the day. We went out to the practice it was heavy cloud cover but nothing going on. About 5 minutes before practice was to start it began to rain and thunder with lightening. So they cancelled the youngest GS practice so we hung out in the van and the rain just got harder. About 10:20 they cancelled the 11 oclock practice. So we came home. It was a wet ride. Stayed about 5 miles under the speed limit. We got home okay. Got a little wet shutting the driveway gates. Did laundry today and that is about all I have done. Fixed salad, chicken, rice and green beans for dinner. Kids had ice cream for dessert. About 4pm it stopped raining. Stayed cloudy. We are supposed to have more rain over night and tomorrow. Yes I have had to watch for those tigers a few times. Right now my back yard is so soaked really need to have a week of sunny and dry weather but it is not happening this week.

Glad that you had a good day yesterday. Sounds like you had fun. I hope when I get back to PA I can do stuff with some of my friends. Did you get a good nights sleep? Hope you had a good day today and a nice time at your DIL's birthday party.

Time for me to get my shower and get ready for bed. Son is supposed to come over tomorrow afternoon and finish the rest of the work in the basement.

Have a good night, sleep well and sweet dreams.

Hello Dottie.

Yes, I can see you have been very busy. Glad your GC were able to help with mowing the lawn. You need to watch out for those tigers. They sneak up on you (lol).Hope it doesn't rain too much tomorrow when the boys have their practices. At least they will be able to change to dry clothes before going home. That's a good idea.

I think the weather is changing here. I woke up this morning and my whole body was aching. I don't generally get like that unless the pressure changes or if it rains. It was around 64 here today, but it was quite windy throughout most of the day. The sun was shining though. I spent the day with my friend shopping. We always have so much fun together. We didn't buy too much, but we managed to go to 10 places before we came home this evening. At least we were only gone for 9 hours this time instead of 12 or 14 like we normally do. I am very tired tonight, though. We did a lot of walking. My feet and back were sore when I got home. We do take a lot of rests throughout the day. My friend has arthritis throughout her whole body, and she has a bad back as well. I'm sure here back and feet were pretty sore tonight as well. I really enjoyed our day together. Tomorrow I am going to my DIL's birthday party. Not sure what time. She said she and my DS would pick me up and give me a ride.

Well, I think I need to go and take some pain pills and rest my back for a while. Have a good night's rest. I'll drop by again tomorrow. Have a good night.

Hello Darlene.. It has been a busy day! Kids were out of school today. Last one before the end of the year which is May 22nd. Teachers had a development day. So GD finally got her annual checkup and her weight and height are porportionate. She is 5'6'. She wants to be 5'7" but the doctor told her it is possible but may not happen as girls usually stop growing about 2 years after starting their cycles. Her 13 yr old brother is 5'3" then the youngest is 4'10". The youngest is 11 going on 12 so he has a few more years to grow.
Then we went to lunch and then to HyVee for groceries. Then got gas. Had enough fuel saver cents to only have to pay 19 cents a gal. Think my total was 2.27 for 11.397 gals. Went a little under that half tank but it could not be helped this week. Gas prices had been at 2.15 a gallon Weds and jumped to 2.29 yesterday. After we got home and put groceries away I went out and started mowing the yard. The boys helped me. So we got it done before the rain started again. It was really wet still but was looking like a jungle. Could have hidden a tiger back there.. lol Made hot dogs and beans. I also made homemade fries for dinner.

It is raining right now the boys are to have practice tomorrow and it is to be raining all day. Practice won't be called off unless we get the T-storms. So will have to toss some dry clothes in the van for them to change in to. I really think the weather changes up and down have something to do with the headaches.. It was 78 here today and humid.. We have rain the next 2 days. Next week temps will be highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's. More normal temps for April. Hope you got a good nights sleep last night also. I slept a little better.
Hope you had a good day today.

Well I am going to shut down for now.
Have a good night. Sleep well and sweet dreams.

Hello Dottie. Glad to hear your ex was able to go home today. Sorry to hear you had a problem with your shake. Glad you had fresh strawberries at home to add to it. Sounds like your weather is pretty warm. It was sunny again today and the a very mild wind. Tomorrow is supposed to be the same. We are supposed to get some rain on Sunday, and then the temps are going down again. It was 62 F here today.

I am happy that my arm is doing so much better. I can actually begin to do some of the things I couldn't do before. I still have to take it easy and not do too much at once, but I am so happy that it is improving.

I'm still dealing with headaches as well. I forgot to phone my doctor today to make an appointment for next week. I don't like having to take pills all the time. I was up at 6 am again today as well, and I didn't sleep too much after that. I think I finally gave up at 7:30 and got up and made some coffee.
Hopefully I will sleep a little better tonight.

Hope you get to bed and have a good night's rest. I have those dreams too, Dottie. I don't think they count too much, or I'd be slim and svelte by now (lol). Have a good night's rest. I'll drop by again tomorrow.

Hello Darlene. Just wanted to stop by. I am extremely tired tonight. My ex went home today. The doctor told him his leg looked a lot better. It was not all red like it had been. Not sure if the swelling has gone yet he did not say. I went and dropped an envelope in the UPS box and then went to Aldi's for milk. Got a few other things with that. Boys had practice tonight. Stopped and got shakes at Sonic.. After 8 they are half priced. I sent mine back twice and it still did not taste like I thought it should. I ordered a Choc Strawberry.. First time they brought out a choc then they brought it out they had just added some strawberry stuff to you could not even taste it.. Asked her to make me a new one from scratch. It was not much better,, I came home and blended some fresh strawberries into it.

We had a sunny and sticky day today, Guess tomorrow is to be the same then we have rain for the weekend. When we get home tomorrow I think I will try to mow the back yard. GD has her yearly check-up.

Glad you had a nice day yesterday and that Physio went well. WooHoo on the arm movement. Awesome.. My oldest GS tonight rubbed my feet. I asked him to see if there was a knot at the base of my big toe. There was on the left foot. Had him rub till the knot was gone then rub the foot. It helped to ease the headache I had. I'd actually forgotten that little trick.

Well it is late again. I need to go to bed sat here in my chair and dozed about 30 minutes. Oh yeah last night I was doing exercises in my dreams does that count... LOL

Have a good night and sleep well. Will catch you tomorrow. Sweet dreams

Hello Ladies.

Dottie, sorry to hear your ex is in the hospital. Hope he is able to get out soon. Hope you are able to do the things you want to do tomorrow.

It was a sunny day today. We actually broke a record. It was 25 C or 77 F. It was very, very, windy though. I thought I was going to be blown away when I went for my physio. Physio is going very well for me. The physio therapist gave me a couple of new exercises to add to the ones I am doing. I can move my arm further than I could before, and I'm not having nearly as much pain. I'm still having a problem with stiffness in the joint. She gave me a massage on my shoulder again to try to release the tension. Hope to do some laundry tomorrow and clean up some things. I am going out with my friend on Friday to pick up some things we want to take to our Women's Retreat next weekend. We're going to go to Costco. We'll probably stop at a few other places as well.
We're going to play hookey from the Knitting Club. On Saturday my son's girlfriend is having a birthday party at a restaurant, and I have to go to that and on Monday my DH's family is having a birthday dinner for my BIL, so I need to go to that. I need to watch my money as I don't get paid again until the 29th. I want to have a little money to take with me when I go to the Retreat.

Well, I think I'll head for bed as well. I'll drop by again tomorrow evening. Have a good night's rest.

Hello ladies
A quick note as it is late again. This morning I spent a couple hours at the hospital visiting my ex. He went to ER to see about his swollen leg. He has cellulitis. They admitted him and have been giving him antibiotics via IV. Also been giving him shots of medicine to prevent blood clots. He said the doctor told him he could maybe go home tomorrow. He was cranky and cantakerous when I was up there. He gave me some money to get me some lunch. I got a salad at Chik filet.. Then I went to Sprouts and got my veggies.
Made fish and potatoes with green beans for supper. Kids ate the last of my 4 ingredient ice cream I made yesterday.

Darlene no I did not get a lot done yesterday as far as cleaning and caulking. Tomorrow is the kids early release day so I don't usually go anywhere.. But need to go pay the van payment and get some milk at Aldi's. They are out of school on Friday and GD has her annual doctor appt. Anyway maybe tomorrow I will get to finish the caulking. Glad you were able to have another quiet day yesterday. We have had rain and cooler temps.. I like the cooler temps but would like the yard to dry out so I could mow. Even though I hope to be gone before school starts in the fall I still filled out the Residency verification papers and will send them with GD to school tomorrow. Only have to do it once as the form lists all three kids.
Hope you were able to get a good nights rest last night and that your headache was gone. How did Physio go today?

Sandra hope you had a good day and that you are getting things priced for your sale. Does Sadie still have to stay in the house?

Well ladies I must get ready for bed. Hope you both have a good night and have sweet dreams. Check back tomorrow.

Hello Ladies.

Hope you were able to get the cleaning and caulking done that you wanted to, Dottie. Hope your tummy is feeling better. Hope you're able to find everything you need at Wal Mart.

Sandra, hope you had a good day.

I had a quiet day again today. It was a beautiful day, and I managed to get out to the store to buy a few things I needed. It is supposed to be very nice again tomorrow, but very windy. I hope the wind doesn't pick up too much until the afternoon. I have to go for physio in the morning. It was in the high 60's today and it is supposed to be the same tomorrow. We are supposed to get some rain on Sunday. The way the weather has been going, that could change.

For some reason, I am very tired tonight and I'm dealing with another headache. I think i will take a sinus pill before I go to bed and see if it helps. I need to remember to call my doctor in the morning so I can follow up regarding my sinus problem. I'm still not getting the sleep I need. I am waking up away too early. I was up before 7:00 am this morning, and I had a hard time falling asleep again. Sometimes I wake up at 5:00 or 5:30 am and I don't always get back to sleep. I need to be up early in the morning so that I can shower before my care worker gets here. I hope she's here on time, as I have to leave early so I can catch the bus at 9:48 am.

Chat with you again tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Good Morning Ladies... Thought I would get here early. Plans are to stay home and do some cleaning in the kitchen and maybe redo the caulk around the back of counter. That is if tummy settles down. Only drank half a glass of Kefir last night so think I will need to have buy more so I can have a full glass at night. . Although I do need to go to Walmart and get some Hydrocortisone for GD and find some other bandaids that are not so wide but just a little wider than regular size. I hope we don't go through this again. emoticon

Gonna make me a blast this morning. Think I will do one of my stomach soothers. Hope my fresh ginger is still okay. But may have to wait till after get the kids off to school.

Darlene yes I figure I will be busy for awhile. So many things to do. Yes I like thrift stores.. Especially for jeans. Kids grow to fast to pay the price for clothes. They do get new stuff though. But I shop around when we do that. I found Ross Dress for less has nice clothes. Got some dresses and skirts there for GD a few times. Glad you had a quiet day and nice weather. We were partly cloudy and cool. But the temp did get into the 60's. Similar temps today but to be cloudy all day. The rain is to move in this evening and stay the rest of the week. My GS said maybe it will just go around us. (it does that a lot).

Well I need to get ready to walk to the bus stop. Hope you both have a wonderful day.

Hello Ladies. Just dropping by for a quick visit. I am very tired tonight for some reason.

Dottie, glad to hear your GD's incision is healing nicely. I can understand how it can still be sensitive.
It is good that your ex was able to come over and drive you to the doctor's office so that you didn't have to drive. Congrats to your Baseball Team. They are doing great. Hope our Jets do well.
Hope your son is able to get back soon so that you can begin organizing what you need to pack and what you need to get rid of. I am sure you will be very busy for the next little while. Shopping at a thirft store is a good idea. You can find a lot of nice things there, and they are much cheaper. My friend found a lovely suit jacket there. It looks like brand new. She wants to use it if she gets to go for an interview for a job.

I had a fairly quiet day today. The weather is quite nice, but it was quite windy today. Temps were around the 60 degree mark. Did some knitting this afternoon, and had to spend almost 2 hours untangling a ball of yarn. It was filled with knots at both ends. I was half-way through my square when they started, and over two hours later I finally managed to get the yarn untangled and rolled up into a ball and was able to finish the square. I had my bible study this evening. It went pretty well. I had to call one of the ladies who is coming. We were waiting for her. I found out she had fallen asleep (lol). She gets up very early in the morning. Sometimes she's up at 4 am. She is very busy as well. She doesn't sit still. She is always doing something. She was tired when she went home tonight. I hope she managed to fall asleep again.

Sandra, I'm sure you're going to have a busy week getting all that stuff ready for the garage sale. Hope you do well with it. Glad to hear you sold that structure. Now you can work on your garden.

Well ladies, I need to get ready for bed. I'm beat. I'll drop by again tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Hello ladies. Just a quick one tonight. Was gonna be in bed an hour ago but you see how that worked out. LOL... emoticon
My ex did come over this morning and drove me and GD to the clinic at Children's Mercy. They told her it was looking good and the doctor barely touched her arm and the ring fell off. The incision does not look to bad. She is to wash it 3 times a day with warm water and once with soapy water. She can use a medium size bandaid now instead of the tape and gauze. The tape left her arm red. She has a problem with excema and I think the tape just made the excema more intense. She is still pretty sensitive there and the doctor told her not to shave for a while and she only had to use the bandaid till a scab forms which may take a few days. But the nurse also said she could use a regular size bandaid once it was not draining anymore. She thought the bigger ones would better contain any drainage she might still have. She took the last dose of her antibiotic tonight.
Since tonight was running club for youngest I made salad and pizza for dinner. I also helped my ex fill out some of the papers for his loan approval.

Darlene glad that your pastor remembered you and you got to church a little earlier. Yes the Royals won again today and are now the only undefeated team in Major league Baseball. They have an off day tomorrow. They beat the Twins today 12 to 3..
I have never watched a hockey game. emoticon Hope your team will get through all the playoff games. Hope your bible study today was awesome. Also good for your pastor for taking time for himself and the family. When he comes back I am sure he will be refreshed and have many inspiring words for his congregation.
I hope my son gets back over here sooner rather than later. I am sure I will have another big mess. Tom told him once if we were customers we would not hire him back if he left such a mess. (that was the time he installed the AC) I had to remind him to go back downstairs yesterday and put the lid back on the paint can..

Sandra sounds like you have a lot of stuff to get ready for that yard sale. I went to yard sales in Hanover with my Mom and Sis.. Can find some good deals on kids clothes sometimes. But I am with you most of the time it is just a hassle. I figure I can go to the thrift store and do just as well. Here if I pay close attention to my emails they sometimes have 50% off sales at the thrift store in Liberty. In fact my GD told me one time she likes to shop at the thrift store.. emoticon I am not sure how much rest I will be getting but I am going to try to get a little. I need to get some packing started. Really was hoping that everything would be done downstairs this past weekend. Then I could do a little rearranging and have a corner to stack boxes. Oh well will try to do some other things I need to do.

Well ladies I think I am going to bed. It is past my bedtime for a school night. Will catch you tomorrow. Hope you both have a good night and sleep well.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Good Monday morning to you both. Glad we all made it to church yesterday. We had a potluck dinner after church and a business meeting after that which thankfully was short. I help in the kitchen and take minutes for the meeting so i was kind of busy but that's fine. I was tired yesterday too, not sure why. I got home and tried to e-mail a paper from the church records I have to a fellow church member who needed it and wouldn't you know, it wasn't saved on the computer? So I had to retype the thing and send it. Another person wants another form that I so far haven't found. I will check the archives at the church next but it's possible only the pastor who was here at the time has it so my friend will have to retype it from scratch. I'm hoping to make her job easier though by finding a copy. And I still have to type the minutes but they are short.

Darlene, I'm glad your pastor took a sabbatical. I wish more would do that when they feel the need. We give our pastor vacation time. It's crucial to their well being and to their family's as well. We have had pastors who were workaholics and neglected their families. There is a huge potential for burnout and divorce in clergy.

I think that's awesome you sponsor a child. I have always wanted to do that.

Dottie, cleaning up after your son is frustrating, makes extra work for you but I know you're glad to have it done. I hope you find time in the next few months to rest. And that you won't ever have to move again! It feels so good to get rid of so much stuff here. I need to do more but after living here for about 30 yrs, we accumulated too much stuff and it worried me but I never took time or had time to do anything about it until now. We sold a huge wooden play structure we had built for the daycare kids. It had a bridge, tunnel, slide, monkey bars, pirate ladder, rope swing, fireman pole and tower. It was awesome but we had no need for it. The people came and took it Saturday and I am left with a nice sandy place for a garden. I'm excited, I have wanted a small garden for some time. Jeff is going to till it for me and add organic matter to it. I will start small with carrots, tomatoes, bell pepper, maybe lettuce, and corn. He mentioned watermelon but our growing season is short so I don't know. I may try it and see what happens. Some people have had good results.

It's nice to have a quiet day after this weekend. We plan to have the garage sale Saturday and I am dreading it. I have to price everything yet and find tables to put it on. Don't even know how to display all the books and puzzles so they can be seen. It's so much work! I just can't wait for it to be over. I hate people haggling over a few cents when stuff's so dirt cheap to begin with. As you can see, I'm not a garage saler. People go to them as a hobby! What a waste of time in my opinion but if it gets you out and it's not too expensive, go ahead. It's just I don't need anymore stuff and everybody else's junk looks just like mine. So I don't get it.
emoticon
Well, I've given myself a good laugh which is a nice way to start the day. Now I need to go do my morning routine. Bible reading, breakfast, menu planning.
Glad to chat with you both.

Hello Ladies

Dottie, glad you were able to go to church today. So happy to hear that your DS showed up to do some of the work he needs to do. Sorry to hear he left such a mess for you to clean up. Hope he comes back soon to finish the job. Glad you managed to get your fridge moved and had time to clean it up.

Sounds like your team is doing quite well. We are cheering for our Winnipeg Jets Hockey Team right now. They made the playoffs. Don't know how far they'll get, but there sure is a lot of excitement about it. When they took the team away from Winnipeg several years ago, there were a lot of unhappy people. We did mange to get them back in 2011. It's not the same players, of course, but everyone is happy they're back.

Hope you don't have any trouble driving downtown tomorrow. I understand how you feel. There are a couple of streets nearby that I hate travelling on, as the drivers go away too fast.

Yes, my pastor remembered to pick me up this morning. He was earlier than the other drivers as well. It was nice to get to church in time to find a seat without any problem. Our Child Care Leader (who is a pastor as well) preached the sermon today. It was on Mark, Chapter 13. She did an awesome job. Our pastor is still on sabbatical. He will be back at the end of April. He is in Phoenix AZ right now. He is taking some time to spend time away from everyone and just spend more time with God. He is also attending churches in the Phoenix area to see what they are like. I know he took some time to spend with one of his daughters. He has been so busy with the church that he hasn't had much time for himself or his family. He and his wife managed to go to Israel for 3 weeks for a holiday. He was able to spend time in the areas where Jesus walked.

Well, I'd better try to get some rest soon as well. I have my bible study here tomorrow night, and I have a little bit of cleaning, etc., to do tomorrow before people come. This time there will be 2 others besides my friend and I. We are co-leaders, and we have been having such a hard time getting people to join our study. One of the ladies who comes does dog sitting to make extra money to help her out, and she just got back this week. She will be coming, as well as another lady who has been joining us. Not sure what we're going to study yet. We'll see.

Talk to you ladies again tomorrow. Hope you're doing well, Sandra.

Hello ladies. Today we went to church and my son came over this morning and started working.. My other GD rode along with us to church. We got home and he had finished sanding and had started painting. He had put up a piece of paneling over the doorway to the workshop. He had split a piece and he left all the pieces and dust all over the garage. Tom used to get frustrated with him for not cleaning up his messes. He had the wood dust and splintered piece all over.. It was such a mess... Anyway he also got the old fridge brought back up here. I had to clean it. It was pretty dirty.. But now it is all cleaned and looking good. It will stay with the house. He still has to finish trim and a couple other things down there so he is to come back Sat or Sun. We will see.. Won't hold my breath. Had a small load of darks so I did them this afternoon. Fixed leftovers for dinner. Son and granddaughter went home about 2:30. The Royals won again today. 6 games in a row. They had swept the White Soxs now they swept the LA Angels. Now I am ready to go to bed. I may have to drive downtown tomorrow to Childrens Mercy for GD's Appt. to have the ring removed they put in the abscess to help it drain. My ex was going to take me but he has not been feeling well this weekend. I do not like driving downtown. It is full of crazy people.. Oh well

Darlene Yes I have had the stuff for over a year so I find his excuses tiring. I hope he gets it done this next Sat. I want to be done with cleaning up down there. Yep he always leaves a mess. Glad your son and his girlfriend were able to get a new car. Did the pastor remember to pick you up today. And woohoo on getting all the things you needed for your sponsored child.

Well it is time for me to turn out the lights and shut the computer down. Nighty night Ladies. Sleep well.

Hello Ladies. Hope you had a good day today.

Dottie, hope your son gets over there to help. Sorry to hear he is always begging off. I'm sure it is strenuous for you. Yes, I can see how you are going to be busy over the next few months. Hope you don't overdo things.

I had a good day today. The weather here was lovely. It was 72 F with lots of sunshine. It was quite windy and dusty, but still very nice. I had to make a trip to Wal Mart to pick up those items for my sponsored child. I managed to get everything I needed. I bought a new black ink cartridge for my computer as well. I need to put that in. I hope I am able to print okay with it. I am trying to print off a picture of myself to send to my sponsored child. I have been having a hard time figuring out how to do it. Hopefully things will work themselves out.

I ran into my son's girlfriend in Wal Mart today. She told me their car was written off after that accident. They were able to buy a new car. I guess they used the money from Auto Pac to pay off the car that was written off, and then started a new loan for the other car. She seems very happy with the car.

I saw one of our pastors on Friday at our Knitting Club, and he told me he was driving the church bus this weekend. He said he would pick me up. I hope he remembers. Normally they phone on Saturday evening to see if you want the bus. I didn't get a phone call, so I'm not sure what time he is going to be here. Hope things work out. I don't want to miss church.

Well, I think I'll try to get to bed a little early. I am very tired tonight for some reason. Must have been all the walking I did. I overdid things a little on Thursday, and my shoulder has really been giving me a hard time. I may end up having to take a pain pill tonight. Hope you both have a good
night's rest. Talk to you again tomorrow.

Hello ladies.. A busy Saturday. Started out fixing me a blast. Spinach, strawberries, mango and blueberries. Added pumpkin seeds, flax and chia seeds. Then Almond milk. Then we went to the boys flag football practice. They have Thursday night practices all season. But they have 2 Saturday practices added till games start. Those start the 25th of April. This year they are doing 2 games the first Sat instead of the last Sat. It won't be as hot. Last game is 13th June. Anyway youngest had practice at 10 and the oldest had his practice at 11. We came home after that. My older son did not come over today. He was wrestling with his daughter and hurt his back. I am so tired of his excuses.. He claims he will be here tomorrow morning. This is the third time I cooked extra food so there would be enough for both of them.. Decided not doing it anymore. Had thawed out the family size package of chicken I had bought. It had 6 breast in it. I usually just for us only use 2 or 3 depending on their size. I need to get a few things together and send to my VA loan guy so he can update my info. Hopefully we can work something out so I can get started on a house in PA while getting this one out of my name. It is about time to get the kids settled down for bed. Thinking I will make me a cranberry orange blast.

Sandra good to see you. Glad that you were able to get your laundry done. I have one more laod which I think I will get to do here shortly. Actually got all the showers done early. I am not a real big fan of baseball but I do like the Royals. Sorry you can't let Sadie outside because of the birds that have nested in her favorite tree.
We have had some wild crazy weather here as well. But it was nice today. Rain in forecast for tomorrow.

Darlene Yes time goes by way to quickly. Glad you had a quiet day yesterday. Not sure I will have many of them over the next few months. There is just to much to do. And I need to get busy doing it. Glad your group was able to get the blankets finished. That is great.

Well it is time for bed here. Will catch you all tomorrow. Have a good night.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺

Hello Ladies. Yes, here it is the weekend again. It seems like time just flies.
Glad you were able to get your laundry and other errands completed, Sandra, in spite of the Benedryl. It's good that it didn't affect you too much. Glad you had time to get a couple of naps in.
I'm sure your kitty is upset at not being able to go out, but you're right, it's a natural instinct for cats to go after birds. She will adjust to having to stay inside.

Dottie, glad you were able to have a quieter day.

I had a quiet day myself today. My friend picked me up this morning and we went for breakfast. My other friend and her daughter joined us. Then we went to knitting club. We got all the blankets and toques together that we are sending to Swaziland, and the Pastor who is leading the Swaziland Team came over to take pictures of us with the blankets. He also made a video on his phone of all of us with the blankets. He is going to take that to Swaziland with him so the ladies there can see who we are. He always tries to bring back pictures of the ladies or the children with the items we send over. They are always so excited about getting extra things like that. We love doing it. I didn't do too much for the rest of the day. Tomorrow I'm going over to Wal Mart to pick up the items I need for my sponsored child.

Well, it's almost bed time, so I 'll close for now and I'll drop by again tomorrow. Hope you ladies have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Wow, another week gone. Today was laundry day and I got that done plus a couple errands and cleaned a little at the church. We take turns and this week it was our turn to do the basement but it wasn't hardly dirty so it was easy. However, early this morning before I fully knew what I was doing, I took what I thought was Allegra. About a half hour later I began to feel really funny and later I realized I had taken a Benadryl instead. Oh my. I kept going because if I sat down for any time at all I dozed off. Luckily they are only 4 hr pills. Later I took 2 small naps and I am still tired. Won't do that again.

Glad you enjoy the Royals Dottie. My Mom and her friend watch the Colorado Rockies and the last couple years they did terrible but so far they are 2-0. I really like baseball. It's the only sport I really like and understand. Jeff and I played on a co-ed church league when we were young and hadn't been married long. I really enjoyed it, wasn't very good but I could hit the ball and run. It was fun to belong to something. I would enjoy being on a bowling team I think but it would probably just hurt me.

Wed evening it rained and then we woke to a dusting of snow Thrs morning. It melted right away but we had frost again this morning. Not unusual. It warmed into the 60s today and it's supposed to be 70s or so this weekend. Very pleasant. Sadie wants outside so bad but she is bothering the birds so bad and they are nesting in the tree she climbs so I'm keeping her in. If she would just stay out of the tree and leave them alone, she could go out but I can't override instinct.

Well, I'm off to read a bit before bed. Have a good weekend if I don't get back on.

Hello Ladies

Today went by quickly. Went to grocery store and got a few things. Only went to HyVee. When I get paid next week I need to get dog food and go to Aldi's for milk and some veggies.. Then I want to see what Sprouts has on sale next week. Trying to relax. Kids have finally settled down. Made chili for dinner at the request of the youngest GS. Tomorrow will be chicken strips. Watching Blue Bloods. Then I am going to bed.

Darlene glad that you were able to get everything done that you needed to do to your apartment to get ready for your Bible Study. Hope you were able to get some ink and get your copies made. Glad that your friend is remaining Cancer free and that they were able to get everything and she did not need the chemo and all that stuff. Hope your day today was good. Hope you slept well last night and had a good breakfast with your friend.

Sandra I hope you have had a good week...

Going to head to bed after I let Remmy out for his night run around the yard. Catch you tomorrow. Hope you both sleep well.

Hello Ladies

Glad your team won their game today. Yes, I had a busy day with all that laundry. No I didn't quite get down to needing a toga, almost though (lol). I was back to short pants.

Today I managed to clean up all my dishes and get my apartment ready for bible study tonight. I had to print out a bible study on Peace, and then my printer ran out of ink so I couldn't print everything I needed to give the ladies copies of the study. I will try to pick up some ink over the weekend and get the copies printed. It was so nice to see one of our members rejoin us tonight. She was in the hospital over Christmas and New Years's and she was diagnosed with cancer in her small intestine.
They removed about two feet of her small intestine and then sent it away for testing. They told her that it had contained cancer. So far she seems to be cancer free. They think they got it all. She has to go to the doctor every 3 months for testing for the next five years, but she doesn't need any chemo, radiation or any medication. Praise God!!! She has been recuperating at home for quite a while. She is happy to be back in our bible study group.

Well, I think I will try to get to bed early tonight as well. I haven't been sleeping well. My friend is picking me up in the morning and we're going for breakfast, then we're going to the Knitting Club.
Saturday I need to get out and pick up the items I need for my sponsored child in Africa. They have to be returned to the church this weekend. Our team is going to Swaziland on April 25, but they need time to pack everything up, etc.

Well, I'll drop by again tomorrow. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Hi ladies.

It is late but wanted to stop by and say hello. Today brought some cold winds from the north. They were. 40+mph temps dropped from 70's at 11am to 50's about 1pm. Well the Royals have a great start to the season. They swept the White soxs. Won all three games.. Boys had their first practice tonight.

Darlene sounds like you had a busy day also. Wow five loads of laundry.... you were not down to toga status were you? Hope you were able to get everything done you needed to do. Hope that the Bible study went well.

I need to get to bed. Will check back on you ladies tomorrow.

Mighty night all.

Hello Ladies. Glad to hear from you both. Glad you were able to get some rest last night, Dottie. Hope you have another good night tonight. Sorry to hear about your headache. This weather sure does cause problems. Hope you feel better soon. I'm sure it doesn't help that you're tired.

You got a good deal on those grapes. Everything here is quite expensive. Grapes are 2.49 a pound on sale. I like to keep fresh fruit on hand all the time. I need to pick up some more veggies as well.
I haven't done much shopping lately.

Sandra, glad to hear that Jeff's shoulder is continuing to improve. Hope you're able to get out walking soon.

I did all my laundry today. I had 5 loads. Most of it is put away. I need to do some cleaning in the morning. Need to do my dishes as well. I am going to try to get to bed a little early so that I can get up a little earlier and get a few things done before my care worker comes. I hope to check out this printer this evening to see if I can get it working. I need to print out 7 copies of my bible study. I don't want to have to go to Staples to have it printed tomorrow. I just don't have time for that.

I'll drop by tomorrow after my bible study. Have a good night's rest.

Darlene

Hello ladies. Just popping in real quick. I want to get to bed early tonight. Had to help GD with her homework. Had left overs for dinner but instead of making more mashed potatoes I steamed a head of cauliflower and mashed it with real butter.. I did not think it would be to much of a hit.. But it was. There was not any of it left. Did a load of darks today. Oldest GS has outgrown most of his school pants. He only has 4 pair now so it is necessary for me to do that load on Wed. I also went to Sprouts early this morning as it was last day for grapes at 98 cents a pound. Got 5 pounds today. Other than that did not do much. Kept having sharp pains in my temple. Think the pressure has been up. We have been having storms and more are coming in tonight.

Sandra WooHoo on the progress on the room. I don't do garage sales any more. Just to much work and usually don't make anything. Getting it all out and priced. I did get some rest last night. Took a catnap today also. Glad that Jeff is getting better with the shoulder. Hope you will be able to start walking again soon. Hope you have a good trip to NC. Glad Sadie is doing good.

Darlene hope your friend gets your crock pot back to you soon. I use mine a couple times a week. Yes GD likes school. She will miss about an hour Monday as she had to go back to the clinic and have the ring removed. WooHoo on not having a lot of trouble doing your physio yesterday. Glad you got to the chiropractor too. Hope you got everything done today you needed to do.

Well wanted to be in bed now but did not get things done in time so I am getting off here and will let Remmy out then its lights out for me. Think I need another good night like last night.

Y'all sleep well.

☺☺Dottie ☺☺
