Dottie, hope you're feeling better. People have no idea what someone else is going through yet they are full of advice. Sigh. Makes it even harder sometimes because they don't know or care, just want to tell you what to do.

I've been absent a while again, my dh was in a motorcycle vs car accident. He flew over and bounced off the car windshield then onto the ground. He doesn't remember hitting, thankfully. He only had 3 stitches and many abrasions but his knee swelled up horribly and he's been off work 3 weeks and is in PT. Still in pain. I saw the ortho surgeon about knee replacement and he informed me he won't be coming here anymore from out of state so I have to see someone else who also lives elsewhere. But the new doctor is very popular and experienced so he will be good. I kind of wanted a 2nd opinion anyway. I have so many questions about the timing of this and so on. Found a great spark team for knee replacement and they have answered many questions. I'm really scared. I'm kind of middle of the road as far as symptoms but am getting tired of sitting around while I want to be out living my life. Even though people tell me it's my decision I feel rather pressured to do it. I don't see the new doctor till end of August so meanwhile, I stew and stress which I shouldn't. Wish God would put the answer in neon lights before me.

I just found out all 3 of the girls I watch are going to preschool this year so I am praying I get some days off each week and I can work part time. Being off 6 weeks could be hard on my families.

Today is my Mom's 82nd birthday and she got out of rehab last week after her 2nd hip replacement. So happy to still have her and spend time with her.

Hello ladies. Not feeling to good today. A little upset stomach. I know why just nothing to do about it right now. Your prayers are appreciated.
I tried to rest today but did not get much rest. Made breakfast for dinner. Scrambled eggs, toast, pancakes and bacon. Had to make a second batch of bacon because Remmy got hold of the first batch and ate it. He was a bad doggie and will get no treats tonight. I am going to try to go to bed early.

Darlene hope you have some cooler weather also. WooHoo on finished laundry. Hope you had a good day with your small group at the park. Wish I had a group of ladies here. Guess that is why I want to return to Pennsylvania so bad. There are people there I could visit and lean on. Course a lot of people here I think have that idea that I should be ready to move forward now that the first year has passed. What they don't understand that even though the first year has gone by. I am not by any means ready to move on. In fact a lot of the time I am still back on that fateful day.

I need to get the kids to bed so I will see y'all tomorrow.

Good for you for cutting the boys' hair. Better than having to go to the barber. Sounds like you did a lot today. Hope you were able to get some rest this evening.

We did end up with some rain this afternoon and evening. It turned quite cool. It was cloudy all day today. It is supposed to be sunny again tomorrow.

I managed to get all my laundry done today at least. Going to church tomorrow, and after church I am getting together with the ladies from my Small Group to go to a nearby park. We're going to take our lunch and have some time together. We may do some devotionals or bible study, or maybe just talk. We agreed we would get together once in July and once in August before we start up our bible study again in September. We miss getting together every week. We have formed such a bond, it's great to just get together and talk.

Well, I have some things to do before bed yet, so I'll talk to you tomorrow. Hope you have a good night's sleep.

Darlene

Hey I made it back. Cut both of the boys hair.. It is easy in the summer.. buzz buzz with the clippers.. Started out the morning cleaning and cutting up veggies to make juice. Made three single serving ones then made me a quart size bottle of juice. Used up a lot of my fresh veggies. Then I cleaned up the juicer and blender. Put out the trash and straighten the kitchen. Had me a salad for lunch. Supper was leftovers. Now I am trying to relax and cool down a little. Glad that tomorrow is to be a little cooler.

Darlene glad you got to go to the knitting club get together. Sorry you did not get a lot of knitting done. Glad to hear there is someone in your building that can help you if you need it that is awesome. Did you get any rain. We had a few sprinkles today then about 4 we had a 2 minute shower. Did not even wet the garden. Oh well will take water the tomato plants on the deck. Other stuff should be okay till tomorrow.

Hope you all have a good night. Sweet dreams.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're all doing well. Dottie it sounds like you had a very busy day today. You sure accomplished a lot. You even got your laundry done. Good for you. Hope you have a good night's rest. It sounds like you've earned it. Glad you were able to cool off for a while in the stores.

My friend phoned me this morning, and she said she would pick me up for the knitting club. I had time to get up, have a shower and have my breakfast before she came. It was nice to just go out and not worry about anything else. There were a group of people at our Hope Centre when we got there. They were getting together for lunch and then they were going bowling. We couldn't do any knitting until after they left. Normally the church staff know that we use the Hope Centre for our knitting club and they don't usually have anyone around when we are there. It would have been nice if they could have left us the upper room area. That would have been big enough for us to use, but they didn't. Oh well, we still managed to get some knitting done.

I need to do some cleaning around here and get my laundry done as well. I am hoping to get around to washing walls, etc., to get everything cleaned as well as I can before I go in for surgery. I need to get my windows washed again as well. I will talk to Dave next week and see if he is still doing that. I can't afford it until I get paid again.

I was talking to a lady who lives just down the hall from me this morning while I was waiting for my friend. She told me that she has attacks of Vertigo as well. She said she fell a couple of times while in the bath, and her DH wasn't home at the time. I told her I had the same problem, but I hadn't fallen. I am always nervous about having a bad Vertigo attack because I am alone. She told me would give me her phone number and that I could call her if I needed some help some time. It is nice to know someone in the building that you can go to in case of an emergency. She told me she is 82 years old and her DH is 84. I would never have guessed they were that old. I thought they were around my age (68). They both look very good for their age.

Well, I'll drop by again tomorrow and see how things are going. We are supposed to get some rain tomorrow. I hope it isn't too much, although it was quite warm here today. It was 80 degrees. It is supposed to be cooler over the next couple of days, then back up into the high 80's and 90's again. I agree with you Dottie, 70 - 75 with low humidity is good for me. I have a difficult time with high humidity as well.

Good night all.

Darlene

Hello everyone. Well today was a mix of things. Got up and it was still fairly nice outside so fixed me some tea.. (no creamer for coffee right now) sat on the deck and read my Bible. Had made the boys go outside also. Used some homemade weed killer on some weeds will know in the morning if it worked. I also cut my hostas off as it was dying and looking sad. Then
I wanted to clean up the area where the trailer had been and clean up the basket that had wood and stuff in it. Do I tossed a bunch of the old stuff in the smoker and started me a fire. Threw on some hot dogs and fixed some beans. Kids had beans and dogs for lunch. Let them roast some marshmallows. Kids got some of the other twigs and branches stacked in the basket after I cleaned it up. (still some twigs around but they can get them tomorrow) Then I was done outside. It was starting to heat up out there.
Came inside and switched some laundry loads around.. Laundry is finally caught up.. YAY!!! Did some filing of school papers from last year.. their grade cards and certificates.. stuff like that. Then took them outside and turned the hose on them to cool them down. Came in and went to the store to soak up some AC.. Came home a couple hours ago and got fans turned on and kids watched their kid show and now all are quiet and in bed.. YaY again
Now I think I may get ready for bed and relax for a little bit.

Darlene glad to see you. Anything over 75 is to hot.. lol I don't do well with heat and humidity. My ideal temp is highs in 70's with low humidity and then lows in the upper 50's low 60's
Sounds like you have a lot of prep to do to get ready for surgery. Or I should say for your post op.
Did you get to your knitting club today? Hope you had a good day. Thanks for the prayers.

Have a good night. Sweet dreams.

Hello Ladies. Hope you're all having a good evening. Hope the weather isn't too hot for you Dottie. We have had a few hot days here, but not too many. It is supposed to heat up again on Monday and maybe for the rest of the week. We are expecting rain tonight and tomorrow and possibly on Saturday. Hope we don't get too much.

Well, I saw my orthopedic surgeon yesterday and put my name on the list for surgery for my shoulder. He has a waiting list of about 6 months, but he asked me if I would be available if there was a cancellation, and I said yes. He is going to arrange for me to have physio at the hospital. Because I am having the surgery at that hospital, I won't have to pay for physio if he requests that the physio be done at the hospital. That will be good. He gave me a web site to check out for what to do post op. I am going to check into it. He said I should find some clothing that is easy to put on and take off so that I can do it with only one arm, and arrange for things I use all the time to be at shoulder height so that I don't have to reach up into the cupboards. That won't be easy, as I have a very small kitchen, and not much cupboard space.

I gave my friend 5 casseroles today that I had made. There were 3 smaller ones and 2 larger ones. I hope she is able to have some this time. She said her DH ate the others I sent, and she was only able to have a small taste. He was happy that I was sending more. I think they're running out of dishes that have been prepared for them. I don't know how long the church does this, it may be only for a week or two. Oh well, now that her DH is home, she is able to do more cooking, etc., as she doesn't have to run back and forth to the hospital.

I'm supposed to go to the knitting club tomorrow, but I'm not sure if I want to go or not. I haven't done any knitting for a while. I should at least finish the scarf I started, as I had borrowed my friend's loom to do it. I'm sure she wants to use her loom again. She has been making toques rather than scarves until she gets her looms back. I do have a set of my own, but I didn't have one with me the last time I went to the knitting club, and she loaned me hers.

Well, I'll talk to you ladies again tomorrow. Hope you all have a good night's rest. Take care of yourself, Dottie. I'm praying for you.

Darlene

Good evening ladies. Today was a much cooler day. Only 88 I think they said on the weather tonight. Tomorrow is to be another 85 degree day. Then Friday and Saturday we are to be back in the upper 90's.. What a roller coaster this weather is. Sunday is to be in the upper 80's. Just crazy!!! Said there would be a heat advisory again for Friday,

Stayed home today. Got some laundry done. Went through the old school papers from PA but what I wanted to keep was pretty much what was in the box as I had gone through it before moving. Kept stories the kids wrote pictures they drew and any art work. And I found the handprints I had been looking for. They are now on the closet door. I will need to get a different container though for any thing from school here. But that is okay. I have some papers and certificates that i need to file downstairs so that I have a clean folder to start with this school years stuff. Praying that this time next year I will be enrolling them in school in PA.
Tomorrow I will be going to the store for some groceries. Don't need a lot but there are a few things on sale that I can use.


Well time for me to get ready for bed. So I am going to get off here. Hope everyone has a good night. Sweet dreams.

Hi Darlene.. Well it is 1:15 am.. to hot to sleep so I decided to spark. Youngest GS seen light on and now is sleeping in Tom's chair. Will have to wake him when I go to bed. Wow request for refills.. I know what that is like. There were a few dishes that came in those first few days after Tom died that the kids liked and would have requested refills on if they could have. Glad that you will be able to make some more. I make some baked beans that the kids really like and eat up. Fact that is what we had for dinner last night.. Too hot to cook much. Had some hot dogs with them.
Printers can be pretty testy sometimes. Wonder if you have a small piece of paper stuck in there where you can't see it and that is causing it to jam anything else you try to put through. Hope you can get it working and that you don't need to use the flash drive thingy and go to Staples to print.

Today is the one year anniversary of Tom's passing. It has not gotten any easier, So I just hope I can stay busy all day. With the planned to trip to the store to soak up their AC maybe we can be gone for several hours. We will see. Will need to break it in two runs though we will have to drop by the house to check on Remmy. Since it is cooler in basement we will be sure he is down there and I will sit a bowl of water down there that way he does not need to come upstairs to get a drink. Also will turn on a fan down there. Usually don't leave any fans on in the house while we are gone but will this time.

Hope everyone has a good day. I think I will try to go to bed now. Maybe I can go to sleep. I am sitting here yawning. LoL..

Sorry you weren't able to sleep last night, Dottie. I understand what you are going through. Hope you are able to get some rest tonight. Going out to the store to get away from the heat sounds like a good idea. I'm sure the kids would enjoy that as well. I need to go to the store tomorrow as well. My friend whose DH had heart surgery called me last night. Our church has a group of people who make meals for people who have had surgery, who are sick, who have had a baby, etc. I'm on that team, so I had made some tuna/pasta casserole for her. I gave her 3 small containers. Her DH ate all of them over the last few days that he has been home. He asked her who had made them, and then asked her if she could wash out the containers I had given her and ask for refills. It made me feel good that he enjoyed them. My friend didn't even get to have any of them, other than a little taste. I said I would make up a few more for them and have them ready for her on Thursday. I'm going to make a double batch this time, and keep a few for myself. I can put them in the freezer and take them out as I need them. I think I had made up 5 containers last time. I gave her 3 and I kept 2.
I have to go out and buy a few things so that I can make them on Wednesday.
For some reason I have been craving baked beans. Every time I see a commercial on tv, my mouth just waters (lol). I'm going to pick up a couple of cans. I don't eat them very often, but they're nice for a change. I have to figure out what is wrong with my printer as well. It keeps jamming and I can't see anything there. If I can't get it working I will have to save a couple of files on a stick (can't think of the right name) and take it to Staples to have it printed. I have to do up two sets of minutes of meetings as I have been called in to another meeting on Thursday. I want to have the minutes of the last couple of meetings with me. Maybe I'll be able to get my printer working properly and I won't have to pay to have them copied.

Jineane, glad you're back. I don't think I talked to you when I was on here before. I hope to get to know you better.

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

Good Afternoon ladies.. I am not doing a lot today. Woke up tired. Did not sleep real good last night up a couple times. Once I woke up around 5 cause I thought I heard Remmy bark but he was sound asleep. So I figured it was my dream dog.. It has happened to me before like that. Remmy does have a vet appt. this afternoon. Just his annual. And he gets a booster shot. His Rabies shot is good 2 more years. So just the one today. Kids wanted to go to the store to walk around and be in air conditioning but right now the house is not to bad so I said no. We have to venture out later. Our feels like temp this afternoon will be 100. Tomorrow even hotter. So I am going to pick tomorrow to go to the stores.. Also will get lunch out somewhere. Don't want to be home tomorrow anyway.

Jineane Thank you for the hugs. Glad you are back and you had a good time on your travels.

Darlene woohoo on restful days right. Don't think you or I get to many of them. Thanks for your prayers. Yes it is a good thing having the grandkids. Glad someone gave you a ride home from the store. Your cold spell came through now we are getting your heat. There are storms in the forecast for tomorrow evening I think he said but they will not cool us down much. Tomorrow I think is to be the hottest day this week.. Yuck.. These weather patterns are so crazy.

Hope everyone has a good day.

So glad you had a restful day today, Dottie. Thinking of you and praying for you as you think of your DH on his birthday. I am so glad you have your grandchildren to help you through this difficult time. Know that you're not alone. There are lots of us praying for you, and our Heavenly Father is watching over you. God bless you.

I had a restful day today as well. I went to church this morning. My friend gave me a ride home and then I decided to go out for lunch. I took the bus to the restaurant, as it was just too hot to walk too far. I decided to go to the store on my way home, so I took the bus there as well (I had a transfer from when I went to the restaurant and it was still good, so I used it). After I finished shopping I stepped outside and the heat just hit me. I sat down for a while on a nearby bench to rest my back and catch my breath. A lady walked by going to the store and we chatted for a minute. She told me that she has asthma, and she is finding the heat really hard. I told her I was having a hard time as well. She asked me where I lived and when I told her, she told me to wait for a few minutes while she went in to the store to buy a bus pass and then she would go home and get her car and drive me home. She lived only a few minutes from the store. She insisted that she wanted to do that, so I accepted. I was so thankful. God is always watching out for me, just as He was when I went to the hospital with my friend when her husband had surgery. When she found out that this was the same hospital and the same area where my DH had passed away, she told me she said a prayer and asked God to take care of me because I was there for her. He did.

We are getting some of your heat here. It was 102 degrees with the Humidex today.
I think it is going to be a little bit cooler tomorrow.

Hope you have a good night's rest. Take care of yourself.

Darlene

Hello Ladies.. a laid back day today. Went to church came home and dozed in my chair. Boys laid down maybe half hour but GD actually slept for an hour and a half. I also listened to the message at Harvest Chapel this afternoon also. It was titled Scary Prayers.. Be Careful what you pray for.

Today would have been Tom's 63rd birthday. Still struggle with his being gone. It is so hard all the way around. emoticon emoticon emoticon If I did not have the grandkids living with me not sure what I would have done or what I would do every day.

Good evening Ladies.

Went to the cemetery today and pulled a few weeds and grass from around Tom's plaque. Changed the flowers in the pot and added 6 fresh red roses. Don't know how they will hold up with the heat coming next week. Tomorrow would be his birthday. Then came home and mowed the yard. kids were supposed to do other chores. They did part of them. Fixed them hamburgers but put steak seasoning on them and made gravy. Then warmed up the left overs from supper last night. Then cut the watermelon we got last week. I did not eat to much. So I just fixed me a salmon filet just a little while ago and I ate that for dinner. Need to get me a shower. Watching Hallmark right now.

Darlene wow sound like you got a lot of good buys. I know every once in awhile I will go to Lifeway Christian stores. They have sales sometimes where you can get a free book when you buy two. They have Cd's for sale for 5 and 10 dollars too. Cool thing that you got a list of dates they have their sales. I need to order the new Veggie tales DVD. It is called Celery Night Fever.
Tomorrow the humidity returns. Temps in 90's tomorrow and all the week.

Well think I will go jump in the shower. Hope you all have a good night. Hugs and Prayers

Hello ladies.

Sounds like you had another busy day, Dottie. Sorry you weren't able to find an outfit for your GD. Your dinners always sound so yummy.

I went to that Chtistian book sale today, and I got quite a few books. They were on sale for about 70% off. I got quite a few books for only $55. I even got 3 books free. they had a buy two get one free sale. They had some lovely get well and I'm praying for you cards, and there are 16 cards in the box. I only paid $2 a box. I even got one box free. I bought 4 dvds for the church and it only cost me $15. I received one of them free as well. They have a sale there every month. The lady who was looking after the sales gave me a book mark with all the dates so that I know when they are back again. They have a warehouse in a small town outside of Winnipeg. They only have sales once or so a month there as well. It is not like a regular book store. I am going to be buying some things from Christian Books.com as well.

Hope you enjoyed the day. Hope it doesn't get too humid for you. We had a little bit of a thunder storm here this evening. It rained hard for a couple of minutes and then it quit. It is supposed to be hotter over the weekend. We'll see how things go.

Take care and have a good night's rest. I'll drop by again tomorrow.

Darlene

Hello everyone. Today was our last mild day. Heat is coming back. Ugh!!! have enjoyed the past 4 days. Oh well. Today we got a late start on our shopping day. It was almost lunch time before we left. We stopped at the library so the kids could take back their books and get their prizes for the reading program. My middle one still has a few more kids bucks to earn but I think he is not as interested in it. He has been watching a lot of stuff on Tornado's and hurricanes and weather in general. Any way after the Library took them to lunch at their favorite place. Then we to Kohls and I got the boys each a pair of shorts and 2 Tee shirts that have funny sayings on them. Now they have 1 outfit to start school. Gotta take GD to JC Penny's as we did not find anything at Kohls for her. Then we went to HyVee and got groceries. Now I am broke. Told them next week we had to get the rest of the school supplies and Jessi an outfit.
Came home put away the groceries relaxed for a while then fixed pork chops, baked potatoes, lima beans and corn also made a salad. Just finished watching the Waltons.

Darlene glad your podiatry appt. was successful. I used to take calluses off the side of my little toe and it was always amazing how a little bit of skin built up in the wrong place can do.
I try to cut my toes every couple weeks. Sometimes it is not real easy. I like getting Christian books on sale. It is always nice. I get a lot of books from Christianbooks.com
Our humidity comes back Sunday. Yuck Yuck Yuck.

Have a good night..
Hugs and Prayers..

Hello Ladies.

Dottie, glad your ex was able to help a little with school supplies. Hope you are able to get more supplies for the kids. Glad to hear the light in your car went out eventually. It wouldn't hurt to check it out with the dealership to see if there is a problem.
Sorry to hear you're feeling bad. I would check it out with your doctor if you don't improve soon. Don't leave things too long.
My appointment with the podiatrist went great. I had a problem on the bottom of my foot. I can't twist my foot to see the bottom as I have had both my knees replaced. I thought maybe I had gotten something in there again like I did before. He said it was just a callus that had grown over a couple of sweat glands in my foot. He cut off some of the dead skin and now I can walk without pain. Wow, I couldn't believe a tiny little piece of skin could cause such a problem. Oh well, at least I got my toe nails cut and filed at the same time. He also checked my orthotics and said they are still good.

Tomorrow I'm going to a book sale by a Christian book store. All our Christian book stores in Winnipeg have closed, but there is one in a small town not too far away. Every two or three months they come into town and have a book sale at one of the churches. I have been meaning to go every time they come here, but I haven't made it yet. I am going tomorrow for sure. I also have a delivery tomorrow evening of some Regal and Avon I ordered last month.
it is supposed to be about 85 degrees tomorrow, with a possibility of thunder showers in the evening. Hopefully it won't be as humid as it was today.

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

Darlene

Hello ladies.. Well today is coming to a close. My ex came over today with a dozen donuts. Then we talked about school supplies. I had asked him if he would help me out with them. So he decided to check out the new Sams Club that just opened. He got a membership (you can't buy anything without one. We found very little in school supplies.. some binders pencils and pens. Still need lots of stuff though. So we will see if he helps any further. They did not have any paper or spiral subject notebooks, no composition books, colored pencils, and the list goes on. emoticon

I haven't felt the greatest today. Had a couple light headed spells and a mild headache again today. Not to sure what is going on again. emoticon

Darlene the light finally went out after driving almost 20 miles. I may still call dealership tomorrow and ask them if that is normal. Not used to having all these lights and stuff. I also need to get groceries tomorrow. Just went over to Hyvee and got gas today. Had to take the gas can to fill up for the mower. Only put about 3 gals in the can. Probably would not have been able to lift it. It was heavy with just the 3 gals in. We have had a few days with lower temps and humidity which have been great. They say starting Sunday that heat will be back. Tomorrow we are still going to be pretty good. I like night temps in the 50's and daytime highs in the mid to upper 70's and low humidity..

Glad you got a new maintenance man that figured out what the problem was with your AC.
also glad that you were able to get your laundry done. I did two loads today.. one of sheets and one of dark clothes. Tomorrow will do some of the other stuff. How did your appt. with the podiatrist go today? Hope he found the problem.

Have a good night everyone.
Hugs and Prayers.

Hello Ladies. Thanks for your prayers for my son Dottie. I appreciate them. I have been praying for him for a long, long time. I will continue to pray, though.
Sorry to hear you're having a bad week. Hope things get better for you. Glad you were able to get a discount on your tv service. My son did that for me just before I moved in here. He had a lot of channels cut that I don't use, and was able to get me a better deal. A few months ago he phoned the cable company and told them that I was getting calls with a good offer from another cable company, and they offered me another deal with $20 off my bill for 6 months. He is good at things like that.

Hope the problem light in your car goes off or that the dealership is able to help you out.
Our summer has been very cool and rainy. We haven't had much hot weather at all. We are expecting temperatures in the high 80's for the next week or so at least. I don't like it too hot, but at least I have air conditioning so it's not too bad if I stay indoors. Glad you were able to get some fans.

I had a lot of problems with my central air last year. It wasn't working well, and I kept calling about it. The repairman came in and said there wasn't anything wrong with it, just that it was being overworked because everyone in the building was using it. A few weeks ago when my son was here we noticed that the rug was wet right in front of the heater/air conditioning unit. It was the weekend, but I called about it. We have a new maintenance man here and he came and checked it out and said something was plugged. He said he was going to call Rotor Rooter on Monday morning. He came back to my suite on Sunday and said he wanted to try one more thing before he called Rotor Rooter. He used a snake on the pipe to try to clean it out, and then he went down to the basement and checked right under my suite. He opened the pipe there, and everything came out. He said he almost got a face full of water. He checked, and the pipe was clear. Since then the cool air coming in is working great. I even have to shut it off sometimes because it gets too cool. Hope it works that well when we have the hot weather.

I did manage to get all my laundry done today. Tomorrow I have an appointment with my podiatrist. I have a problem with something on the bottom of my left foot and I can't see what it is. It hurts to walk on it. I'm not sure if it is a callous, a blister or if something is in there. The last time I had this problem I thought I had a blister and the podiatrist found something in there. We'll see what he finds. Hopefully he will be able to help me.

Talk to you again tomorrow. Hope you have a good night's rest. Make sure you eat something, Dottie. You do need to keep your strength up.

Hello ladies.. Thought I would stop in earlier than usual.. Have been having a rough day. Actually it is a rough week and it will be for the rest of the week I imagine. Trying to do stuff but don't really feel like it. Did go over to the gas station and had air put in the tires.. but the light is still on. Hopefully it will go off tomorrow if we go anywhere. If not will call the dealership and ask about it. Went to Aldi's after the tire was aired up. Then to Time warner to take some stuff off that we don't need.. Found out that to have some of the channels that we watch have to have the group we have.. But did have them take off the Encore channels as I don't watch them. (Had them for Tom) He liked the different Westerns. Then the guy gave me another discount on the box so I ended up with a 20 dollar savings.. Told him I did not want to change internet or phone just the tv. Then we came home.

Darlene glad to see you. Yes I know it is cooler up there that is where we are getting this cold front from. But it will not last. Starting Friday we are to be back in the upper 80's Sunday and all next week we are to be in the upper 90's and of course the humidity is coming back. I don't have AC.. It needs to be charged.. But I don't have the money and my son said the price went up so he can't afford to buy any (even though he owe me a bunch of money.) He had promised his Dad he would pay us back but it has not happened. We thought maybe this time he would since it came from my IRA. Anyway the first hot spell we had I went out and bought me a wind tunnel fan and a power max. They work pretty good with the other two floor fans. Plus I have 4 window fans. Glad to hear the good news about your son. I will continue prayers for him that he will be able to give up the alcohol for good.

Fixed chicken for dinner but I did not eat much. Just was not very hungry. But the kids ate good. They liked the chicken. I had thawed out 2 breast and sliced them into strips and steamed them in a little olive oil then took the lid off the pan and let them brown. I used a garlic and herb dressing on them.

Hope everyone has a good night. Hugs and prayers for y'all

Hello Ladies. Hope you all had a good day. Glad you are enjoying the cool streak, Dottie.
We haven't had too much summer weather yet. it has been quite cool with a lot of wind and rain. My friend said she put her quilt back on her bed the other night as it was too cold. She refuses to put the heat back on. I can't put the heat back on as I life in an apartment block, and they have the heat off for the summer and we have central air. I have had days where I have had to turn the central air off so that it isn't quite so cool in the apartment. We are going to have some heat for the next week or so. Temps are supposed to go up into the high 80's and 90's.
I was going to go to the pool today, but I found it a little too cool. I am going to try to get down there tomorrow. I need to do my laundry and do some cleaning in my apartment, then I can go down when the sun isn't too hot. I burn so easily, even with sun screen.

I received good news from my son today. He heard from the doctors and he doesn't have a problem with his heart. It was just his blood pressure was so high while he was going through the detox. I'm glad to hear that. He is only 33.

Hope you ladies all have a good night. I will drop by again tomorrow.

Darlene

Hello ladies.. Today was a nice day. Actually broke some record lows and highs. We are to be in this cool streak for 2 more days Then go up and this weekend heat is back and all next week will be in the 90's Ugh!! But have to remember it is still July. Trying to get mildew out of a work apron of Tom's... Not sure I can get it out.. any ideas would be welcome.. I have had it soaking in bleach water all day. As for doing anything Not much done.

Made me a smoothie using my nutribullet.. Cup of spinach, 1 apple, 1/4 avocado, teaspoon of cinnamon, tablespoon of cocoa, and 1 tablespoon of chia seeds. water to the water line on the tall cup they provide blend for 30 seconds and walla.. (sometimes I don't have the avocado so I make it without.. it is just not as creamy) Yum Yum.. Made that for brunch. Loaded my counter up with veggies and made me enough juice for 2 days.. maybe 3. Always only make that much as after 3 days it is still good but the benefits of fresh juice is lower.
For supper kids had burgers and fried potatoes with peas. I had a chicken patty instead of burger. Also had a salad.

Well its about prayer time. Have a good evening.

Hugs and prayers

Hello everyone. Hope y'all had a great day. I went to Price Chopper and got some peaches, nectarines and plums that were on sale. When got home I cleaned the older 2 floor fans.. They were pretty dirty. Now they are clean and blowing air better. Did a load of laundry.

Darlene good to see you here. You have been missed. Sounds like you have been busy as usual. Glad that your friends husband is doing okay. I can imagine it was hard for you to return to the hospital area your hubby had been in. I returned the kids recert papers for their medical by mail. Could not go back to the state office not sure I will ever be able to. Will call them Friday and see if they received the papers.
Sorry to hear about your son. Will keep him in pray.

Well ladies it is late and I must go to bed. Hope you all have a good night.

Hugs and prayers

Hello Ladies. Sorry I have been MIA for quite a while. I lost the thread to this page and I never got around to finding it until now. I have been dealing with some issues. I am meeting with an orthopedic surgeon on July 23 to get my name on the list to have surgery on my rotator cuff in my left shoulder. I have tried medication, cortisone shots and pt, but nothing worked. The doctor told me he doesn't want me to wait so long that he can't repair the shoulder. There is a 6-month waiting period after I get on the list.
Also, one of my friends' hubby had a heart attack a week ago last Friday, and he had to have triple by-pass surgery. I spent the day in the hospital with her when he had the surgery. Thankfully, he is doing well. The only problem was that he was in the same hospital where my DH was before he passed away, in fact, after the surgery, he was moved to the 5th floor in the ICU, exactly where my DH was. Thank goodness they changed the waiting room around, or I don't think I would have been able to be in there at all.

My son who moved to Calgary has had more problems with alcohol. His girlfriend has left him, and the last time he was in the hospital to detox he was told he has a heart problem. The doctor said he had a heart murmur, but then he said he thinks he has a problem with thinning of the heart muscle. My son had an ultra sound done, and he is waiting for the results.

It sounds like all you ladies are busy as usual. I will find Kerolyn's page and send her a note congratulating her on her wedding. Thanks for letting us know, Dottie.

I am going to read some of the posts so that I can catch up. I will chat with you again soon.

Take care and God bless you all. I have missed you.

Darlene

Hello ladies.. Just want to pop in here really quick. Time for me to go to bed. It is still hot in house but got the fans going. Did not do anything today other then cook a roast in the slow cooker. We did not go to church today. The kids requested we stay home and watch the service from our church in PA.. so we did. Tonight at prayer time we read Matthew 24.. and one question prompted me to continue with Matthew 25 and the story of the 10 virgins.
I hope everyone had a good day. I will say today was a quiet one.

Also just wanted to let you all know that Kerolyn got married today.

Well time for me to hit the hay.

Hugs and Prayers

Just a quick pop in. To hot to do anything. We jumped in the van about 12:30. Picked up kids scripts and then went to find kids shoes. Started at the Kmart that is closing but they did not have any more kids shoes. Some mens and ladies shoes but they were ugly. Store has one more day. Took the kids to their favorite place to eat. They had enough points that they were able to get a soccer ball. Now I think they have all the sports balls from Culvers they can get, basketball, volleyball, football, soccer ball and a kick ball... Then we went to Payless and got school shoes. And then went to Walmart and got a couple containers I wanted. The boys got a toy at KMart... they were not to expensive at 70% off. When we went to Walmart let GD get some nail polish and some more remover. Then we came home to our hot house. I ordered pizza for supper just to hot to cook anything.

Getting ready to go to bed shortly. So I will try to check back tomorrow.

Hugs and Prayers.

Hello Ladies.. Sorry to have missed the last couple days. Just been trying not to be on computer a lot. Weds went to find a filter for the refrig. have a repair man coming tomorrow. It is only 17 months old.. Glad we bought the extended warranty. Tues I did some rearranging in the kitchen and got rid of the set of 3 drawers I was using for silverware and assorted storage bags.. snack, sandwich, quart and gallon. the bottom drawer was used for ramen noodles and popcorn. Since Tom is gone I don't buy much popcorn. Rearranged the pantry cabinet I have and put noodles in there along with the bags... Took stuff from the misc. drawer and put silverware in it.. The drawer is a little small but I made it work.. The misc stuff I put in the small drawer of the china cabinet. I was keeping the weekly pill containers in that drawer but I threw most of them away. I have my two containers so that drawer was available.
Today went and got a few groceries. Then mowed the lawn and weed eated (till the string ran out) this afternoon. Hope I can figure out how to reload it.

Hugs and Prayers

Oh my goodness Sandra.. I hope that doctor calls the rehab center quickly.. Wonder why he had not already done that. Hope you keep on him!!
Yes my son always has an excuse as to why he can't make it over here. No money to buy the refrigerant, no money for gas, he doesn't feel well.. just goes on and on sometimes.

I read Woman's World sometimes... a lot of times I talk myself out of buying it.. My widows benefits sometimes just barely make it through the month. I need to start getting school stuff for the kids. They go back to school the 13th of August. So with three of them to get things for I try to start early. Did get some stuff at the thrift store clothes wise.. so I think shoes will be the next thing.. I have an old juicer which I hope to replace one of these days and I have a very good blender.. it has a liquefy button on it and I put in a few leafy veggies with some filtered water and I have a green juice, Tom used to add greens and then carrots and tomatoes and whatever other veggies we had available. Yes flaxmeal is good... I get the flax seeds and then grind them myself.. they stay fresh for about a week or so in the refrig. I fix oatmeal and add blueberries, cinnamon, the flax when I have it and if I need a little sweetener I add the agave.

I know what you are saying about trying to eat healthy and feed kids.. I stopped buying a lot of chips and things like that.. When they ask for a snack I tell them to get an apple or some carrots or something like that. I will have to buy some goldfish and cheesits when school starts as my youngest will be in his last year of elementary school and still be allowed to take a snack each day. But I am working on eliminating processed foods. Yogurt is not to bad but I watch the ingredients list closely.

Hope you continue to have a good day.

Hugs and Prayers..

Still waiting for the Dr to order the sliding scale insulin my Mom uses at home. But the rest home where she is having rehab has to have the signed order from the doc. He won't call them back and now her insulin was over 500! So I called the dr's office and insisted he call the rehab place. back. I'd like to quit my job and take care of my mom, it's so frustrating. She's better off at home, I hope she can get stronger quickly so she can.

Too bad your son is so slow. That's hard having to wait on someone else. Much too hot to be without AC.

Well, back to the good morning I was having before getting upset about the dr. It's in God's hands and I need to have patience.

Woman's World magazine has some recipes for fruit and veggie soups/ purees that look interesting. I like smoothies too. Good way to add fiber and nutrients. It may be a while before I get a juicer but a blender is handy too. I've been adding flax meal to my oatmeal, adds fiber and omega 3. I love it with blueberries and walnuts too. But blueberries aren't always in season and are expensive although sometimes I buy the frozen. I find it hard to eat healthy when feeding children too because it adds to the grocery cost but I try to slip a few things in that are good for me. I like the greek yogurt with fruit in it too. Don't buy it much though, it's kind of pricey. it's good and filling though.

Good Morning everyone. It is to be a cooler day today.. only in 80's.. vs 95 yesterday. The humidity is to be lower for the next couple days also. Yeah!! Going to do some rearranging today. Need to clean out a cabinet and see if I can eliminate a smaller one.

Sandy good to hear about your Mom.. Glad she is doing well. Yes I think when our Mom's get older they think they should be better as fast as they used to. My Mom is the same way.
Sounds like you live in a very historic area. I have been trying to figure out what to do with the kids before they go back to school that is free or not to expensive.
My weight is staying the same also.. maybe its something in the air. Yes the humidity gets to me but I think I would do better if I could get my AC fixed. It needs a charge of refrigerant. My Son is certified HVAC and he was supposed to buy the stuff and get over here a month ago but he has not been able to do it yet. (lots of excuses)

Hope you are having a good day.

Hugs and prayers

Oh, I feel for you! I hate humidity. It is over 90 here too. But drier. Mom is doing well today, she can't wait to go home though. Hopefully her spunk will help her get there soon. The PT did a consult with her and said she is right at the average place after surgery even though she's impatient and thinks she should be better. Thanks so much for your prayers. Yes, she is fairly close. Technically it's a different town but we are only separated by a river so the drive is straight south of me and takes about 10 minutes. The view from her window is spectacular as it looks directly on the Scottsbluff National Monument which is very close to the facility. You can look it up online to see a picture of the historic bluff. We live close to Oregon Trail wagon ruts and landmarks. Kind of a neat place to visit if you're into history. LOL, I should get a job with the tourism committee! Well, I'm off to play some FB games and rest.

I was disappointed in my wt this week, stayed the same. I'll keep working at it. Have a follow up with podiatrist tomorrow.

Sandra I can only imagine how hard it was to put your Mom in a Nursing facility even for a little while. Hope she recovers quickly and will be up and about before ya know it. Will continue to pray for her. Hopefully you get to relax today a little bit. Is the rehab facility close to you?

Well trying to relax as it is very warm today. Our temps were to climb to 95 and the heat index was to be about 103 said it could be more.. The humidity is back and oh my am I feeling it. My fans did get a full day of rest on Thursday and then a partial day yesterday and Friday. But they all got turned on when we got home from church.

Hope that every one has a good day. Hugs and prayers

spent the day with my mom. They tried to dismiss her from the hospital 4 days after hip replacement and found she isn't able to go home so we admitted her to a nursing facility for rehab. Hopefully very short term. The biggest worry is that the hospital let her sugar get to 25 and she became unresponsive. They can't adjust her insulin to meet her needs until Monday when the doctor can sign for it. Ugh! So we made sure they understand they need to watch it closely. Other than that, she is in a top-notch facility. Her room looks like a motel room and she was seated at a table for supper with two other ladies. She doesn't even have a room mate yet but that can change any time. She will resume PT on Monday. It was a tiring day but everything went very well. Just a little emotional having to put her there although it's best for her right now and us. She now understands why the doctor wanted her to wait a little longer for the 2nd hip surgery. But I think with a little rest and time she will bounce back. Unless God has other plans. This has certainly been a hard year for us.

Good evening ladies. Today was a beautiful day. Wish they could all be like this one. A few clouds but mostly sunny, a nice breeze and a high temp of 72 with low humidity. Only fan I had on today was the kitchen window fan and it was on the exhaust so it would draw air out of house. Cooking supper had the ceiling fan on in the kitchen. But other than that was able to give fans a rest. WooHoo.. Took the day and did yard work. Mowed, weed-eated, trimmed a bush and pulled some weeds that could not get with the weed wacker. Then I was done for the day. Had three phone calls one while I was doing some trimming. It was my Sissy so I worked and talked. Then as I was getting ready to get upstairs and relax had 2 more calls. So I sat on the exercise chair.. and talked for those two calls. Kids had a late lunch so I made a later than usual dinner. Made stir fry.

Sandra yep looks like you and me.. I had accepted a coleader spot as spark people had a message about the other two leaders not having posted for over 6 months.. so did not know if that meant they would close the team or what so I said I would do it but there really has not been much activity here for a while now. I would take my name of the leadership board but don't want them to close the team. Glad that you have heel lifts that help with the Achilies. Glad your Mom did well with the surgery. Wow that was a long time to wait to be taken to pre-op...
Yes we are close in weight.. I would like to get below that 200. (and keep going of course) I was close a couple years ago then we had the move and had stopped the gym in prep for that and then being here.. Things just did not turn out quite like we expected. And then Tom died and now I am stuck here. Praying I can get back to PA next summer.. I need to sell this house. There are a couple things my older son is supposed to have been taking care of for me but always seems to have something come up on his weekends off. He is on call every other weekend. So I don't know. I bought dry wall for him to put up in the basement on the ceiling where we had taken out some of the tiles of the drop ceiling.. I got it in March. Told my sister today if it was just for a wall I could probably finagle it.. but on the ceiling did not think I would be able to get that.. Oh well.. we shall see.. Maybe I should just sell as is... but I need to get enough to pay off the current mortgage on the place. emoticon
Okay it is late and I need to get to bed. Sorry to vent so much..

Sindia will keep your Mom in prayers. Glad to see you stopped in. Come by anytime you get the chance.

Well ladies I really must get off here.

Hope y'all have a good night. Sweet dreams.. Hugs and Prayers. emoticon

sorry to hear about your mom. I will pray for you both. My mom is recovering from 2nd hip replacement and she is such a dear Christian lady. My MIL was too but died of cancer. They are such a blessing to us and I hope God allows you to keep her near a good while longer and relatively pain free.

Hi Ladies.
I haven't been here in a while but I would like to ask for continued prayers for my mother Joanne Grant, the caner is in her bones and its slow moving.so she will be with us for a while long which is good for us, however she is in a lot of pain and it seems that the MD's are having a hard time finding a pain med that actually works.

Thank you so much for the prayer for my mom, Dottie. It was a rough day but praise God! He let her breeze through with no nausea this time! They overbooked surgeries as the surgeon will be gone later in the week, maybe all the doctors did that, she checked in at 10:30 a.m. and wasn't taken back to pre op until 4:00. Finally in a room at 8:30! But she's doing great so I'm thankful. Then come home and a fireworks vendor has a big fireworks display a block from my house until very late. I'm so angry, 11 hrs at the hospital and then up till midnight because of him. I have to work tomorrow. Grrr!
I'm so glad it's a short week, we get Friday off.

As long as I wear my shoes with the heel lifts, my Achilles feel better. Hope they are healing, I see the dr for a follow up on Monday.

Well, now I have to unwind and try to sleep. You are so sweet to pray for my mom. Looks like we're the only ones on here lately. That's o.k. we can support each other. Looks like we weigh about the same and maybe can encourage each other. Good night dear friend.

Good evening Ladies.
It was a cooler day but still in the mid 80's. Tomorrow morning it will be in the 50's and get to 77 for a high. Thursday will be similiar. But the temps creep back up through the weekend and the first part of the next week.. Started the day off with the kids dental appts. Oldest GS had a small cavity and they fixed it today. His next appt will be with the teen dentist as he will be 13 by then. GD had a small cavity but we need to go back for that one as she already sees the teen dentist and they were booked for the day. This was her first cavity. Youngest was good.. he had a small area between two baby teeth. Dentist told him to floss a little better. Then we stopped at Aldi and got some more milk and avocado's a few fresh veggies and a loaf of bread along with stuff for a taco night later in the week.
Home and put the clothes in washer from thrift store. Then after lunch we went to walmart and got a bag of mulch for around the flags on the side of the house and another bag of rocks for filling in some more holes. Will need more but did not feel like hauling a lot of bags this time. Any way wish it was August. I don't want to be in the month of July.

Sandra will pray that all works out for you to get your knee replacement done. Will also keep your Mom in prayer for a speedy recovery from her hip replacement. Yes I think juicing would be a great idea. I have been copying some of Drew Canole's recipes. I got his juice recipe book on my kindle.

Tomorrow we are to be in the 70's and cooler for a couple days. Will be a nice break. Maybe I won't need to run all the fans. I have always accepted clothes from others when we were in PA there was people always giving us stuff for the kids. Here no one around with kids older than mine. But they have no problem with wearing second hand stuff. I buy new stuff at Walmart or Kohls sometimes.. I did a lot at Kohls in PA but not so much here. Have not ever bought these guys name brand stuff.

Hope you have a great night.. sleep well. Sweet dreams.

Hugs and Prayers.

Good Tues morning. I don't have to work today as my Mom is having her 2nd hip replacement. She will have knee replacement next, don't know when. No surprise that my joints are all bad too. My Grandma had knee replacement before she died. We should be getting a family discount. Sunday night I hardly slept as my lower leg/ankle was aching so much. Finally took a Vicodin and got a little sleep. I was expecting 4 kids yesterday but only ended up with one. I was so relieved. God always knows when I need a quieter day. I slept good last night but have decided to call the ortho surgeon and see when I can get my knee done. I'm tired of the pain and disability. Want to live a full life again if that's possible. That's what I thought 14 yrs ago when I had foot surgery and look how that turned out. I will always have joint problems. I'm angry with myself for ever gaining this much wt! I'm still trying though. But winter is much harder for me and I eat whatever is available. Haven't figured that one out yet, that's why I thought the juicer might help.

It's supposed to be in the 70s today. It's been so windy every day, cool, and just doesn't feel like summer. A good time to have surgery I guess, but I bet the surgeon is booked up till doomsday. He is only here 4 days a month. I'll let you know later.

I read a couple great Kindle books about loving God and letting go of fear and I am learning to do both. Trusting has always been hard for me so I'm working on it. I love Philippians 1:6. "He who began a good work in you will complete it in the day of Christ Jesus." That may not be perfect, word for word, but close. I love that He is still perfecting us and someday we will be like Him!

Have a good day.
BTW, you got a great deal on the kids' school clothes! Great that they aren't too proud to wear 2nd hand clothes. My 6 yr old day care boy is into Nike and only wants name brand stuff! His mom is teaching him that money doesn't grow on trees. emoticon

Hello ladies.. Yesterday was a rough day.. There is no rhyme or reason to them.. They just come and go.. Some days I start out okay and bam something happens or something is said and I just cry. Anyway yesterday was one of those days. Got to church and partway through worship went out and sat in the front area on one of the chairs by the window, crying... Can't say there was anyone thing that triggered it. Anyway we came home after church and had a light lunch. Then made the kids lay down and rest,, (every Sunday). Fixed leftovers for dinner.
Today we went to the thriftstore. They were having a 50% off sale on all clothing and shoes bedding etc.. So we went and I got the kids some clothes for school. Found some good buys.. with the tax I spent almost 75.00 dollars.. GD got 3 prs of nice jeans and a pr. of culottes for school. She got some sleep shorts and some shorts for play and some other culottes for now. She did not have to many summer things.. She is getting so tall. Any way then the boys each got 3 prs of jeans some shorts and some long gym style pants and the each picked out a shirt. So don't think I did to bad.. Boys found stuffies they wanted. But I had told them no toys.. They begged and whined but they did not get!

Sandra Hope your feeling better today. Yes it is quiet here. Guess everyone is just busy. Kerolyn is getting married the 13th of July. But she has not been here in months. She has had a lot of computer problems. I know Angie and her family were having a lot of health problems. As for everyone else I don't know what is going on with them.

Yes I know what you mean about church. God is good all the time. He loves us even when we don't get to church no matter what the reason. I agree God is not to be a convenience but a lot of times that is how people treat Him. They are only interested in Him when they have a problem.

Hope you all have a good evening. Time for me to make dinner.. Going to make a pork tenderloin.

Hugs and Prayers to everyone.

Dottie,

It was beautiful here. Had a nice easy day and a good supper. Why do the weekends have to go so fast though?

I think I hurt more today as I felt better yesterday and was on my feet more. I'll stretch after my tummy isn't so full.

Hope everyone comes back, it seems pretty dull here lately. Church has been the same, pastor still has to prepare a sermon, we still have bills to pay, yet everyone takes off. Good thing God doesn't just show up when He feels like it. That's my gripe, when people aren't committed. God isn't something or someone you just pick up and throw down when it's convenient.
Have a good evening, everyone.

Hello everyone. It has been a crazy day. We have had patches of sunshine and then rain. Just finished another rain storm. It was a little longer than the one we had earlier today. That one was only 10 minutes and did not put out much rain at all.
Been having one of those days. Cried a lot. Luckily kids have been in the play area downstairs. Did get over to Walmart today and got the paper products and the cleaning stuff I needed. Also got a couple more containers of damp rid..

Took kids to Jose' Peppers for lunch as youngest had a coupon or a free kids meal he got at school. They brought most of their meal home so that is what they had for supper tonight. I had a chicken taco salad for lunch and did not feel like eating dinner. Gonna have prayers here in a little while then I will make some juice.

Sandra hope you are feeling better this evening.

Everyone have a good night. Hugs and Prayers

hi Sandy, so glad you are feeling better. I know about working with all the physical problems, it glorifies God when we rely on Him. Well, need to let dh use the computer to do the bills, etc. Hurting this morning so I need to make sure I do my therapy routine. Talk to you later. BTW, I lost 3 lbs this week. Just gotta keep it up!

Hello ladies.. Was busy yesterday cleaning in the garage. Got as much done as I can now till son gets over here and puts up the drywall on the ceiling in the basement. Then I can finish that corner that the drywall is blocking. My GD and I worked most of the day going through stuff.. She went through her box of toys and put some in the donation box.. We took a bunch of puzzles to the thrift store and some other misc. Fixed burgers, beans and fries for dinner yesterday. Today we went to the bank and then had brunch at Perkins and then went to HyVee. My ex and his niece came over and he brought me his magic bullet.. I had asked him for a couple cups that would fit under my juicer.. Well he brought everything over. (No Book) it looks different than the one I got. He also brought me a couple photo albums to use.. The one is large and I can use it for all my bigger size pictures. He also brought the signed Elvis pic he had and I told him I would send it to my neice as she is a big Elvis fan. (me too but I don't need any more stuff) He keeps telling me to have a garage sale.. I said nope not messing with a sale. To much work and usually don't sell much anyway. Gave him the old tow bar off my old dodge he is going to try to sell it for me and I gave him a leaf blower he said does it work told him I had no idea. Tom always used the riding mower and mulched the leaves.
Anyway we had Hyvee fried chicken (they had a special).
GD cut up some potatoes and I made mashed potatoes, opened some green beans and made some gravy. Then we decided to go to Sonic and get shakes which are half price after 8. So got 4 for the price of 2.. Now I am sitting at this computer sweating because it is hot in the house even with all the fans going.. Hopefully son will have the money to get the refrigerant and fix AC..

Sandra yes there is a lot out there on juicers.. I want to get a masticating one because it does leafy greens better. I know the chutes are smaller on those but I have heard you can get more juice from the spinach and kale and other leafy stuff.. Right now I have a juiceman juicer Jr.. It is 15 yrs old and they don't make parts for it anymore... It is a centrifugal and very loud.. But all the parts are plastic except the basket. SO I am careful with it.. as it is so old. One of these days though I want to get a new one. I have seen the Breville and I think I seen several recommendations on that one. I know they can get pricey but they are worth it in the end.

Sandy Good to see you again. Glad that you are adjusting to the medicines you are on. Hope the job is still going well.
Well ladies it is after 11pm. So I think I will close this for tonight. Hopefully will be able to get back tomorrow. We are to have scattered storms tomorrow.

Hugs and prayers everyone have a good night

Hello all,

I want to apologize to all of you for being MIA from the team. I was recently diagnosed with fibro
and I am in the process of working my job and cleaning jobs while adjusting to meds. I am doing better and will be here more often. God has really blessed me and has given me the strength and patience to get through and overcome.

Sandy

our weather today sounds identical! In fact, it's already clouding up at 4:00. I've just started researching juicers and MY! What a lot to think about. What kind/brand do you own? I looked at a centrifugal and masticating one on Amazon and they have good and bad points and good and bad reviews. It comes down to what I expect from the machine and what I want I guess. Wish the masticating one had a bigger chute. But the quiet motor would probably win me over so I'm leaning toward that one. it's also a little bit smaller and I have no counter space left anyway. It's a Breville. Probably at that price, it will have to be a Christmas gift unless Dh is feeling very generous. emoticon

I was going to Walmart tonight after work but if it storms, I will stay home. So afraid of hail storms, we've had so much damage in the past and I don't want my car dented or broken. And it's hard to load groceries in the rain. I've done it before. emoticon

Sandra good to hear from you.. Yes torn tendons take a long time to heal.. I hear you about fixing one problem only to have 2 or three more to deal with. Along with juicing I am eliminating processed foods as much as possible. It is not easy sometimes. If my AC worked I would try to do some baking of few things I like. Oh well.. probably don't really need them anyway lol... Our weather here has been crazy also. We are to be close to 90 today and there is a chance of T storms later. In fact I think there is a chance every day for the next 7 days and temps pushing 90 degrees.. along with the humidity,

I need to go back downstairs and finish emptying the china cabinet and put clothes in dryer. Need to fix me a salad for lunch first. GD is in her room cleaning and the boys are downstairs goofing around.

Hope that everyone has a good day. Hugs and Prayers

Sorry, I started to reply to you but got interrupted by the kids. It was actually the podiatrist I saw. I have one torn Achilles tendon and another probably close. Very painful. He gave me heel lifts to relax the tendons and told me to use heat, whirlpool and continue stretching. I do stretch already but had gotten a little lax. But with the limping due to my knee it caused them to tighten up. The one has been torn over a year so I hope they can finally heal. It has really handicapped me. Even minor housework seems daunting to me and exhausts me. I don't do things with the daycare kids I would like to or need to. Spent a weekend praying about whether to quit my job or not and whether to go ahead and have knee surgery. Haven't made those decisions yet but am hoping to heal and feel better. I am making sure to keep up with my therapy exercises better. If I'm not better in 2 weeks, he will consider giving me a script to return to PT. The heel lifts help my calves but make my knee hurt a little worse. Isn't that the way of things? Fix one problem and deal with 2 or 3 more.
Working hard on the diet too. Eating lots of fruit and veggies and less meat and breads. Hoping in time to be able to be active again.

Supposed to be hot today but with chance of afternoon/evening thundershowers. It's been cool and rainy here every day which is so not like western Nebraska. More like a monsoon! Weird, doesn't even feel like 4th of July already. Fireworks sales start at noon today. The sounds of summer. I'm going to look for a juicer tonight at Walmart and online.

Howdy everyone. Well I did not do a lot today.. Did not finish downstairs. Was on the phone a lot. Had to call the Health insurance for the kids and tell them I did not request a change in PCP and had them change it back. She said she did not know how it happened.
Then I talked to my Mom in PA and a friend of mine called me from PA.. So by that time my morning was pretty much gone.
Now I am getting ready to go and read for a little bit. Have not done that for awhile.

Sandra how did your doctor's appt. go? Was he able to do something that would help you with your knees.

Well it is off the computer I go.. May check back before going to bed. Not sure.. If not I will see you tomorrow.

Have a goodnight Y'all and sweet dreams

Hugs and Prayers

Just gonna pop in here real quick. Gonna shut down in a bit and go to bed. My Mom, Sister and Niece's went to our friends viewing tonight. Gave hugs from me and let them know I wished I could have been there. Mom said she was in a lot of pain so she went right up to the front of the line.. Rest of them stayed in line.. Mom sat down then. Pastor's wife prayed for her while she was there. I just finished listening to Sunday mornings service. Awesome message.
Today I packed up almost all the china cabinet. Still have a little bit to do tomorrow. Not enough for a full box so I will find some other stuff to add to that last box. I also did some laundry. Will finish that up tomorrow also.

Sandra hope that your doctor can help you with the knee pain. I have heard from several people that have had knee replacements that they are glad they had it done and they are doing so much better. They said you gotta follow the instructions the doctor gives you.

Everyone have a good night. Hugs and Prayers

I have a doctor apt tomorrow, I'm hoping he can help me. If not, I will make an apt with the ortho dr and possibly pursue knee replacement which I dread.

Hello ladies. I am hot, tired and exhausted. This no AC is driving me crazy. We have rain in the forecast every day except Tues but that does not mean we will get it. Oldest GS and I emoticon the yard this afternoon. It was growing pretty good and with rain coming decided it should be done.. Don't usually do on Sunday. Mom said the Lord would understand. By the time we were done I was dripping.. My head band was soaked and GS said Grandma you are sweating.. You need to drink some water. He helped me really good without fussing or complaining. emoticon I did make him stop at one point and take his inhaler as I could see he was having problems breathing. Then I made the other two do the trash. I started a small pork roast and then fixed the leftover potatoes and made some brussel sprouts for dinner. emoticon Then we had some fresh emoticon for dessert. The boys had emoticon for a snack earlier this afternoon. Probably because I ate a small salad and some leftover beans for my lunch. Since mowing I have had 106 ounces of water. emoticon

Sandra glad you had a good day with your sister. I like lentil soup. I make mine with some celery, onion, green pepper and parsley. I hope the rain coming here helps the humidity. I have a lot of fans going right now and my house is still 88 degrees.


Hope that everyone had a good day today and y'all have a good night and pleasant dreams

Hugs and Prayers emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Wow, that sounds exhausting. The simplest tasks now seem daunting to me. I managed to run a couple errands this morning, then home to have a bite and cool off and rest. Then my sis and I went to KMART for some tops and found they were on sale. It poured rain for a while this afternoon, maybe that will ease the humidity. Watched movies this afternoon and had lentil soup for supper as DH is in eastern Ne cleaning up a town that was wiped out by a tornado. Well, helping to clean it up. I wish I could have gone too, trying to do things I enjoy while he's gone. Eating things he doesn't like, hoping to jump start some wt loss. Good night ladies!

Hi Sandra. emoticon Oh my what a time you have had. Will lift you in prayer. I can relate to your being able to trust that God has your best interest at heart. I have been struggling this past 11 months in many areas of my faith.

I had a busy Sat. Took GD to Great Clips to get her hair trimmed and thinned out. She said it feels so much better. Then got a card for a friend who just lost her husband in a farming accident back home. He was a close friend to Tom. We dropped some clothes off at the donation center for a local thrift store had lunch and stopped at Walmart. Then back home to relax before fixing dinner. Made kids steak seasoned potatoes and green beans. I had salmon with the potatoes and green beans.

Everyone have a good night. Hugs and prayers

hi, it's been a while but have been wanting to get back here. After a 3 month hospital stay, my FIL was sent to a NC nursing home. DH and I drove by car from Ne to NC in early spring to take some of his things from his house. I've been struggling with a bad knee and now have at least one torn Achilles tendon. Have a dr apt Mon to see if he can help me. There are times I can hardly walk and I'm still caring for kids which is leaving me drained. I have some hard decisions ahead of me I fear. I just want to be mobile and pain free but so far I continue to worsen. It's hard to trust that God has my best interests at heart. I have a lot to work on. My wt is awful too, I'm trying but not able to exercise at all, just some PT stretches. I will try to get on here more as I need the support and motivation. So good to see my friends here again. emoticon

Mom's test came back with no indications of any bleeding any where so they said she could go home today if she had a good night and all looked good this morning. Well she is still in hospital because her blood pressure was way high. She told the doctor that she had not had any of her meds since she was admitted. She takes meds for blood pressures and other issues.. So I guess he ordered her some medication and said they would see how it looked in the morning. My niece who is a nurse told her she did not think he would get it under control in a day so she might be there another day.

Hope you all had a good day.

Hugs and Prayers.

Good afternoon thought I would take a break from juicing for a few minutes. So here I am on the computer. LOL ... Made one of the recipes that I copied before I took the juice book back to the library. They are all single serving, I need to buy some mason jars and then I could make several different ones and drink them through the day. Going to make beans and bratwurst for dinner tonight.. Something really simple to hot to cook anything big. Made pork chops and mashed potatoes along with lima beans last night. May try to make some fries in the skillet.

Have not heard from Sis or Niece how the tests went this morning. So keeping the phone close.

Y'all have a great afternoon.

Hugs and Prayers.

Hello everyone. Today was a long day. Had 4 football games. Kids all got a trophy. Last year they gave out footballs. Youngest GS won both his games and the two older ones lost their first game and tied the 2nd one. All three had a good season. So the kids were fed between the morning game and afternoon games with hot dogs, chips, water or powerade.
GD got sunburned as she did not listen and put on her sunblock like I told her. There other grandpa took us to eat at Culvers for supper. Was good as I had not thawed anything but I had hamburger patties I could have tossed in the fry pan. Theey seem to cook better when I put them in pan frozen. Come out juicier. Anyway that was my day.

Also had a call from my sis last evening they were taking Mom to ER.. She was in ER all night.. They took her at 10pm and the doctor did not see her till 4 this morning. Anyway they admitted her this morning. So she will be in hosp a few days.

Think I will get a shower and go to bed as it was late last night well early this morning when I got to bed.


Nighty Night... Hugs and Prayers

It is Friday evening and I am watching Matlock. Blue Bloods was one of the few I watched this past season.

Today was a work day for all of us. Went to Walmart to get some stones and pick up scripts.... Well they did not have any stones at our Walmart. So went to HyVee and got some meat and some produce. (gas cent special for every 20 dollars in meat dept or deli or fish get 13 cents added to fuel savers) Yep had $60 dollars worth of meat. They also had fresh Italian bread with 13 cents fuel savers... anyway I ended up with 68 cents added today. Because I wanted some rock to spread along the fence line where the ground is eroding away. Went to Liberty Walmart bought 4 bags but need more. We did the worse spots first. Then we emoticon the yard.. It was still pretty wet in the back... GD did the front yard and then oldest GS did some weed pulling and I had him weed eat between the two fences in the back. I mowed around the trees and the lower part of the yard where it was swamp like. They my youngest tried his hand at mowing the flat area in the back at the top of the yard. Then I trimmed back some branches from the 2 smaller trees in the back yard. That was all I could handle for the day. We were going to do the garage today also but back was hurting and I was tired. It will wait for another day.

Came inside started hamburger for kids taco's and some ground chicken for me. Then sat for about 20 minutes with icepack. Then cut up tomatoes, onions, avocados, romaine lettuce. Then heated burrito shells and hard taco shells. Heated up some refried beans and had dinner.

Hope everyone is doing well. Y'all have a good night and sweet dreams

Hugs and prayers

Good Morning ladies. Getting ready to go to the library in a little while. Just want you to know that I am stepping down as a co-leader. With the kids out of school for the summer I do not want to be on the computer a lot. I feel like I need to spend time with them. Hope everyone has a great summer. I will check in with you.

Have a great day.

Hugs and prayers for everyone.

Hello ladies.. Did not get a nap today so hopefully I can get to bed a bit earlier tonight. The math books I ordered for the kids from Amazon came on Saturday. So no more coming up with math problems or trying to find free pages online and them wanting me to join.... So tomorrow they will read for an hour, have math and the boys have 2 essays to write for me so far GD has one. Tomorrow I need to go to the Library and then Aldi's for milk.


Well I am going to get ready for bed. It is almost 8 pm. Hope y'all have a good night and sweet dreams

Hugs and prayers

Hello Ladies

Here it is Saturday night. Today was a wet day. At least till about 1 pm.. We got drenched at the games. Had made the kids take dry socks and shoes and a change of clothes. My rain jacket was even soaked, and I had an umbrella. I have my orthotics out of my shoes drying. Afterwards my ex but lunch for us all and then had me get groceries and paid for them.
Since his hot water heater still has not been replaced I let him take a hot shower here. He thanked me several times and I told him no problem.

Fixed meatloaf and mashed potatoes for supper along with some italian blend vegetables.

Oh yes since I have beem juicing on a more regular basis the last 10 days I have lost 2 pounds.

Thought you all would like to know that Kerolyn has met a really nice guy and they are going to be getting married the 13th of July. Send her best wishes on her page.

Time for me to go to bed. Y'all have a good night

Hugs and prayers..

Howdy everyone. Well the fans are keeping things relatively cool House temp is 79 degrees. As long as I stay in the room with the fans I am okay. We should be okay till my son gets back from TX next week. I think our highs are only going to be 79/80 degrees.. I just hope the humidity doesn't sky rocket.
Did not do anything today..other then running over to the store about 3:30 Our HyVee had medium eggs on sale for 99 cents today limit 2 so I also got a few veggies.. Got the Friday special on pizza.. Got a hot and ready to go for $5.00. Kids had wanted pizza for dinner so this was an answer as I did not want to turn on the oven. We came home and had pizza. I ate one piece and it has been fighting me ever since. I just finished some oatmeal with cinnamon on it.. So hope that will settle my stomach down. Made some fresh juice this evening and let my GD help.


Hope you ladies have a good night. Hugs and Prayers.

Hello everyone. It is a humid day. And no AC. Fans are not doing a lot of good. Attic fan knob broke off a few days ago so can't even use that to help pull out some of this humid air. My stomach is nauseated and I have a headache. Know its from the heat.

Boys are playing outside. They have about 15 more minutes then they have to come in and cool down. Then they can go back out for another 30 minutes. GD is laying down as she had cramps this morning. She took a couple of her pills.


Hugs and Prayers

Hello Ladies. Went to the Library and got oldest GS the book he had requested. ( I requested 2 juicing books today myself) any way when we got home from there we had reading and math. Then we had a handwriting practice time. I want them to work on their cursive writing. They don't teach it in school. I had a teacher last year tell me they dropped it from the curriculum. Crazy I think. Because there are still things you need to be able to write your name not just print it. Then we had practice tonight. It was partly cloudy and very windy but all the bad weather was way north of us. Well I turned my AC on today only to find out it is not cooling properly. We just had it put in last summer. So I called my son and he said he did not understand why it was not cooling as it should be. He was like did you uncover it .. If I could have reached through the phone I would have bopped him.. Told him I was smarter than the average bear and I had uncovered it a few weeks ago. Any way it was 90 today. But my house never cooled below 82. Might as well have had the fans in the windows. Will let the ac on over night and if nothing has changed it will go off. No sense wasting electricity.

Sandy glad you are doing well. Hope you have a good evening.

It is almost 11 so I really need to get off here and go to bed. Plus my doggie wants to go out. See Y'all sometime tomorrow.

Hugs and prayers.

Hello all,

Hope you all are doing well

Hello Ladies.. . Yesterday the kids decided that they did not need to listen so I assigned them an essay. They were to write it about obedience based on Ephesians 6:1-2. They had to tell me what Obedience meant to them, How you can be obedient, Can you be obedient just when you feel like it and Where are you to be obedient.
Then I told them I thought we should do some summer school. So I printed off some math sheets last night. Today they were to finish the essays, then they had to read for 35 minutes. We then did the Math pages and practiced signing names in cursive. A lost art in schools now adays. Then we went to the Mega Monday sale and I had them do more math. When we got home they got to have some PE time outside. Not sure about tomorrow yet.. I did assign them another essay. Each one got something different this time.

Gonna get off here and find some math sheets for tomorrow. Plus I need to record reading times for youngest at the library summer reading site.

Hope y'all had a good day.

Hugs and Prayers

Hi Sandy good to see you. Glad that you are doing well and had a good day. Kids are going to start tomorrow with some studies at home. They are going to do some reading, math and writing. They did not want to listen today so I told them they would have home style summer school.

Hope everyone is staying cool. We have been in the upper 80's but I have not turned on the fans yet. But may have to tomorrow it is to be 90. But then Thurs it is to drop back to 79. Oh well. I know once it is on it will stay on.

Have a good night everyone. Hugs and Prayers

Weds afternoon. 2 oldest will be home soon. Then youngest gets home bout 30 minutes after that. Hope everyone is doing okay. Had to make a run over to VA so they could do a test to make sure kidneys were ok so they would refill my diabetic medicine. Did not understand why they did not do that with the other tests. emoticon Or at least noticed it was not done then I could have done it the day I was in there for my appt. Gas has jumped up to 3.55 a gallon and I hate making extra trips. It is 21 miles there and 21 back.

It is a warm day and my attic fan is not doing to good a job so I will probably have to turn on AC... As this weekend it is to be even warmer. So here we go.. Summer no spring.

Have a good evening every one

Hugs and Prayers
