My grandson woke up Tuesday night, Wednesday morning crying. Then he barfed so hard he had trouble getting his breath which really scared him. Everything had to be changed because there was no time to get to the bathroom. He was taken to the clinic today because he still is not feeling well. Not sure if he has had an headache but he has run a fever of 102* for awhile. When a 3 year old is sick...

Got a lot done today but still have a lot to do tomorrow so I can leave next Tuesday. I will be able to check in once in awhile but you all will on your own most of the time until I get back.

I will make some new topics early tomorrow so it will be easier for dial ups to get on our activities.

Recovering from a long lovely weekend and enjoying some beautiful weather. Our lettuce is done already and everything else is coming along nicely. We will be hosting a chili cook off for Father's Day so I'm looking for several fun prizes while keeping the pool clean, the weeds pulled and the house tidied up emoticon

Gray, hope that you get the PC to work as you want it.

Did a bunch of stuff today but also found I was very tired. Brain Fog has set in and I am mixing things up.

Going to bed soon.

So sorry to hear of your trouble, Gray. I have done a system restore on my pc but just went back to a previous date. I went on to do a restore before windows loaded. Wish I could help.

I need more than luck right now with PC. I tried to restore my files yesterday and the disc did say "restoring files" and the j pegs being restored were going across the screen but when the first disc was done when I put in the 2nd one it would do nothing. Could not get it to restore anything...........so I took a look at what was restored and I can find NOTHING at all!!! I placed the restore disc in my laptop to view what was on there and there was nothing. I am totally confused since there was a message that my files had been backed up and a message that they were being restored. I do have all of my photos on a flash drive in a bank safe for safe keeping.........so I am happy with that much. Gotta stop by the service desk tomorrow and pick up a disc that the PC guys downloaded Service Pack 2..........I have put more money than this thing is ever worth!!!!!!!

Today is indeed a day for rest......my body has had a workout this week and the week before that for sure. Had my pc overhauled when the operating system had to be uninstalled and reinstalled.......so now it is as it came when I bought it. All the files and items that were installed to it have to be reinstalled.......trying to save money by doing it myself but it is testing my patience with this new technology.........

Today I went to a wild life preserve and went on a guided walk to some limestone caves that have stalactites and stalagmites and even columns! The walk was not hard and the couple of places I did not feel safe my son helped. My knees and ankles are not steady and I fear falling. There were ancient Chamarro pictures on the walls and even some hand prints. Really neat.

I did wear myself out but partially because I came home did the laundry and then went to the mass and rosary for my son's and DIL's family.

I am closing up and going to bed soon.

Jane, DH has often talked about doing a train ride. He won't fly.
Today i spent ALL day push and ride mowing the yard. Came in several times to cool off and hydrate. My arms are feeling it to-nite and the arthritis in the fingers are going for the gold in pain. Think I will grab something for pain and go to bed. Everyone have a lovely holiday!!!

Thanks you all! Looks like it will not happen this year but I think I would like to go from the west coast to the east or the other way someday. Seeing the hills, mountains, plains, rivers etc., of our beautiful nation sounds delightful.

We took the train once from Seattle to Los Angeles. There were some pretty sites to see out of the windows. I enjoyed it but you do have to allow extra time. We had to stop a few times to let the freight trains on the track route. So time is something to consider. The meals were wonderful and I enjoyed visiting with people at our table in the dining car. Dh did not like it because our suite was real small and cramped but I loved the ride.

Jane... I just cut and pasted your question... Does anyone know if the Amtrak train stops in McCook, NE? in my browser and got this link... if it doesn't open for you the answer showed a station there. Hopes that helps.

Read at the hospital this morning, then went to the local credit union to get help in checking things on line. Got home in time to make a call to Oregon but my niece had failed to e-mail me some information that we needed to make plans. I will have to do it tomorrow. We had talked about taking the Amtrak from Nebraska to Portland. She found out it cost too much and took more time than I have... I think a train ride through the Rocky Mountains would be delightful. I enjoy flying and seeing the sights from the air but from the ground is very different.

I love seeing our nation and its many different landscapes.

Gray, I am glad your hubby is feeling better. You make sure you get the rest and "me" time you need. In the long run it will be good for everyone. You sure have more energy than I have. All that lawn mowing wears me out just thinking about it.

Does anyone know if the Amtrak train stops in McCook, NE? I know it goes through and stop in Omaha.

Take care everyone.

Jane

Speedy, hubby is coming along, some days he hurts more than others . He has been up at the son's house "supervising" he's building of a shed, but I think today he over did. Tomorrow is therapy again........and yes, some days I feel I could use a vacation .LOL. This mowing is really getting to me and with the heat to get worse I just may go borrow a goat somewhere for I know I was on the brink of a heat stroke a few weeks ago trying to get the yard cleaned up. Noticed a few minutes ago that my green beans are poking their heads thru the ground. As soon as the ground dries out some will need to get a hoe to working. DH killed a copperhead here yesterday and son killed 2 snakes at his house...........ewwwwww I am not that afraid of snakes but prefer to see them well in advance!!!! In fact will take a hoe after them and chase down a mouse but now when it comes to spiders.......well let's just say don't be getting in my path of get-away....LOL Gotta take my shes off and settle down for the night...............cleaned thru the house today while DH was at son's.............has been a while since I have had the chance to do that. Everyone have a lovely evening/day....HUGS to all

Thanks for the update Jane... when I saw Long Beach I thought you meant here in Southern California but I realized there's other Long Beaches. You are going to be very busy!!!

Glad your air is working again GG. How's the DH doing? Better yet how are YOU doing???

We will be celebrating our oldest grandson's 11th birthday this weekend along with his graduation from elementary to middle school, Memorial Day and the beginning of summer even though schools runs until June 22, we just love to get together and celebrate emoticon emoticon

Anyone else have plans for the long weekend?

Linda, the storm season here is like the Atlantic meaning they usually start in June and last through November. We have not had any real storms for several years because they have been starting here. If a storm starts in Pohnpei or Chuuk then we can get blasted or the rest of the Marianas.

I should be in the Greater Portland area June 18th - 24th and again July 9th - July 18th, I think. Some of these I am still firming up. I do plan to spend sometime at Long Beach with one of my cousins when I first go back to the Pacific Northwest in July.

I do plan to join some other SP people in a walk to see Wendy the Welder on the Vancouver side of the Columbia on June 21st.

Very traditional Chamarro family is not following tradition! Funeral service will be next Tuesday followed by cremation and internment on Wednesday. There is a Mass and Rosary every evening at the church in the village where I live. They live in a different village... Oh well, I am just trying to be a support person.

We have had another tropical storm develop around us. I am afraid that Japan will be hit with a typhoon by the weekend. We have not had this much wind and rain for years. We have had the rain with the start up of storms but because they were developing right over us there was not much wind. This time it started a little south east of us. It even has a name now but I am not sure what it is.

Hope all is well with everyone.

DIL's Dad died this morning around 11:30. The family was called early and told he would not last through the day so they were at the hospital for him. His children have already come from the states but I am not sure which Saturday the funeral will be.

Rough time for the family.

Spent most of the day yesterday mowing, riding/pushing. Then DH bought me an electric weed eater (have never ever used one) and I gave that a whirl last night on the hill behind the house where a mower is not easy to navigate. Didn't do too bad for a first-timer but my arms were feeling it..........have issues with arms anyway. Can't wait till Dr gives the OK for DH to do some small things to ease things up on me.............but he did have all that to do himself when I was unable to do yardwork......so now it is my turn.
This morning had lovely weather to do a 2 mile walk to benefit ALS (Lou Gehrigs Disease). Had a real nice turnout to show their support.

Gray, you are sweet!

Went to the last meeting for IRA this school year and then to lunch with some teacher friends we sat and chatted until they were closing the place down after 2:00 p.m.

Summer plans still on hold because I cannot make some of them until I know what is happening here. I did get ahold of my friend in NM! She is feeling much better and was heading for a grand nieces high school graduation after supper.

Looks like we will have rain for a couple of days. Still really hot and muggy.

One of my grand girls noticed my hair cut. My hair has natural "high lights" from turning gray starting in the upper left and now is slowly spreading but my beautician says that she fixes peoples hair to look the way mine is naturally. I know brag, brag, brag but considering the few areas I am happy with, my hair is a nice one to have people look at.

I get my haircut when we go down to CA and get by with about 3 haircuts a year. It is a treat for me to go.
I have been doing yardwork the last couple of days so haven't been on here very much. I work and have to take frequent breaks but it is coming along little by little.

I've always cut and colored my own hair and then my DD took me to Fantastic Sams for my 60th birthday and since then I try to go a couple times a year for a cut only. Well I've got lazy and had to watch every penny so it's been a year and a half since I've treated myself so for my 65th birthday (mid June) I'm going to make an appointment and GO!!!! emoticon really I am emoticon

Finally got my hair cut today. It has been a challenge because I have been leaving my afternoons semi free to pick up my grands if my son gets called into work. For years he worked M/W/F every other week but when he changed to a new fire station he changed everything and his wife and I both are confused. I did not pick my younger girl up one day because I did not know I was supposed to. About 3 p.m. the school called my son, he called me and I scrambled. He had forgotten to let me know I was to pick up the girls and I had forgotten to check with him.

Anyway, about the hair, it is growing faster and my beautician said it is very silky and we both agreed it is fuller that it was awhile back. (Thyroid has caused some problems.) She also said that the shampoo I am using may have a good affect on it. I have been using this shampoo for over a year now and was considering stopping because it is expensive but I think I will keep it.

Hope you all are haveing a great day.

Jane

Hi all you lovely Grandmother's! emoticon for the JumpRope SGoody you left on my page to celebrate my fitness minutes last week! Sorry it has taken me soooo long to acknowledge your thoughtful encouragement. I had been going everywhere on SP the last few weeks, except My SPage...forgot to check on it. lol.

I hope you all had a glorious Mother's Day surrounded by your children & grandchildren in celebration of just how special you are.

Jane ~ I'm so sorry to hear of the heartbreaking time your family, especially your DIL is going through. You rightly said that God is in control of all things at all times. We may see only our little piece of the picture, but He alone sees the picture of our lives as a whole. Prayers going up for you all.

Gray, if you are pushing a mower you are exercising! Count the time. Also pulling weeds is exercise. Count the time! You are doing great!

I have had difficulty getting my summer plans firmed up. Perhaps I know why now. If my DIL's Dad dies closer to June the funeral may not be until early June especially if the family waits for those who will come from the states. The family would not understand my leaving for "vacation" so perhaps the Lord is keeping me here until after the funeral and then will provide a seat to get stateside. I can leave later and return later. My reason for leaving so early was to beat the school children and staff because the flights are usually very full for a couple of weeks.

We will see.

Jane

First day of physical therapy after surgery for DH today. Me driving with him in passenger seat was an odd feeling but will give it to him for not "front-seat" driving as I had thought he would do. Perhaps that will come as he improves. Looking forward to improvement, not driving lessons!!! LOL Was going to look for elastic waist pull on pants for him to wear for therapy but on the first store after not finding what he wanted he showed signs of playing out so came on home.......will just have to launder the one he wore today for next PT visit Think I will put on some every day clothes and go out to pull weeds....the rain we have been getting since Sunday has made everything grow fast. Think mowing the yard is gonna keep me plenty busy here for a while

I'm sorry for your loss, Jane. Such a blessing to have caring friends at the end. She is at peace in heaven.
Gray, I missed my mom too on Mother's day. I know too that she is in a peaceful place now.
I am going to do errands and shopping today. The weather is very nice now.

Had a going home service for a friend's mom today. The lady was 87 and has known the Lord for about 11 years. My friend spent a lot of time with her mom for the past four years as she was bedridden. She was in a home but my friend wanted to make sure she had the best care so after work and weekends she was there with her. I am so glad to know she is in heaven today and forevermore.

Hope everyone has a great Mother's Day! I got a sprig of white orchids as did all the mothers at our church. Actually got three for the oldest mother, the mother with the eldest child at church and something else. There were two moms that ended with nothing so I shared mine and we each got one. A couple of the young people got to take a sprig home to Moms who were not there so it turned out great.

Mine is sitting by me now where I can enjoy it.

It is hot! It is 91* at 10:00 p.m. in the house even with two fans but only 81* outside. The concrete building holds the heat and I do not have air conditioning! Most of the time I do not miss it but the last couple of weeks are almost unbearable.

Sorry I am grumpy. Physically feeling better this evening as far as my head and stomach go.

Have a good day everyone.

Jane, I hope you feel better soon.
The weather is very nice right now and I just got back from a walk in the woods. Nothing long but it was relaxing and we discovered a tree down but no damage. It was a big alder and dh will use it for firewood.
My dh had a cardiologist appt. and he is doing well. Then on to have blood test done.
Have a good weekend everyone.

Good to hear things are going OK for you Gray.

I have had a mild headache, upset stomach and vertigo today so have not done much. Was supposed to pick up my grands and did not realize it. My son called from work and I want to pick up the third grader an hour late. She was safe in the school office.

Hope I am feeling better tomorrow.

/thanks for all the words of support and I thank you for the prayers too. This morning got real interesting when while trying to fix breakfast so he could take his pain pill my back was trying to go into spasms. I suppose all that sitting and standing in one area all day yesterday was working on me. After breakfast he went on his walk thru the house a few trips then laid down with his ice pack, I grabbed one also and there we both lay laughing that we'd both be there for dust to gather on us. LOL I fell asleep and I guess my meds for spasms worked their magic and I feel so much better. Cleaned the bathroom and trying to get caught up on my emails. DH is feeling so very much better today

Glad to hear things went well Gray! I agree with Speedy that you make sure you take time for yourself, for a nap, reading a book, gardening or whatever relaxes you. Even if you have to hire someone for an hour or two each day or get one of you kids to come over so you can have some sanity time. You and your DH will be better off it you do.

Happy birthday to your hubby!!! Linda
DH is resting up from surgery this morning was an out-patient process. He got sick so was there longer than anticipated. The Dr not only removed the broke off disc that was lying on the sciatic nerve but the disc below that he had surgery on 20 yrs ago had scar tissue that was pressing on the nerve. So hoping once he is healed properly there will be no more pain, tingling, and burning. Going to be several weeks off from work..........that might get interesting LOL On this list of things NOT to do I did not see dish-washing on there, so when he complains of being bored I will make a suggestion...LOL

Much busier than I originally planned today. My son called that he was going to work which is overtime for him and his girls needed picking up. Other grandmother at hospital with her hubby who may not come home again so I had the girls until DIL got off work. This was after reading at the hospital and having lunch with friends. Changed plans a little bit leaving girls at home with DIL to arrive soon so I could go to the graduation/awards ceremony of the children from my church. Just got home and trying to beat the clock. emoticon

Hope you all have a good Tuesday.

Our weekend with the grands was lovely... today my DH turns sixty-Onederful. We will celebrate, as always, next weekend on Saturday with a combination Mother's Day and birthday brunch at our youngest DDs home. Tonight I'm cooking him a cornish game hen, baked potatoes with sour cream and chives, lima beans, sliced tomatoes from the garden, crusty french bread and emoticon to toast another successful trip around the sun emoticon He's such a dear man and works sooooooo hard. He's not big on getting older so I try to make it as easy as possible emoticon

It is a little early but our pastor and his wife and a couple of other teachers will be gone for multiple reasons later in the month so the celebration will be now. One of the girls graduating has gone to Temple Christian School since kindergarten. I am so pleased that she is graduating as a member of the church. Her family goes to a Palauan church that the preacher speaks Palauan. She is a lovely young lady.

Have a great day everyone.

Jane

Not only did my migraines stop when I had an emergency hysterectomy at 37 but the mosquitoes stopped biting me as well and thank God for that because I was allergic and would get a hive the size of a salad plate every where I'd get bit. I do get, what I like to call, a migraine waiting in the wings but they don't get full blown any more. All mine are visual now and I have completely lost my sight in both eyes on occasion (very scary) but no nausea and they don't last for three days at a time any more either. In fact I rarely have a headache now. Hormones are funny things.

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

Jane......sorry for the migraine. DH suffers from them and I have had at least 2 in my lifetime and count my blessings that is all I had to deal with. In fact once i went through menopause I no longer deal with those monthly headaches........WOO-HOO! Of course at first they were replaced with those all so wonderful hot flashes....thank God they have been very far and in between now.
