I vote for resetting the goodie game, too.
Yesterday I finished doing the laundry from our vacation trip. More unloading the trailer today. We went for a short walk in the woods and both of us have a cold.

Jane, I vote for resetting the Give A Goodie Game.
Yes, SPEEDY, what a wonderful and completely different way to find out what the child will be. I am sure whatever that it will be loved very much!! Now then, if the cake turns out to be lemon swirled with chocloate then you better start shopping for twins........LOL
Thelma Louise is my first and middle name.........had fun with it during the movie that came out!! I was named for my Mother's deceased sister that passed away at 9 months old of pneumonia and Mother's other sister.Until I graduated I had never heard or met another Thelma, but when I married and moved to DH's hometown there were 2 other Thelma's within a mile of us. My new dentist used to sing "T is for Texas, T is for Thelma that made a wreck outta of me" LOL
Yesterday my cousin and I walked over 7 miles on our Rails & Trails. Feet are a bit sore today. We may walk again tomorrow. My main problem any more are my knees. Such noises they make going up the stairs and then going down the stairs they are very painful!!
Well must get ready for work. Everyone have a lovely day!! Sending healing vibes your way Jane.........

Good morning everyone! It is about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, July 31st. Anyone have any ideas for games for August? Do we want to start with 1 on the Give A Goodie game or stay with the 2200's? Looking for feedback.

Jane

Such a fun way to announce the sex of your grand!

Exercising my ankle and elevating it and hoping for the best. The wheelchair get turned in July 31st or August 1st. Then I will just be using the walker.

Thanks, Karen for your help!

Thelma? At first I thought that was the name of a tropical storm emoticon emoticon After rereading it a couple times I realized that it must be your name emoticon My middle name is Louise so we'd make a great pair emoticon

Sorry about your garden emoticon and the bad weather emoticon

I'm going to go read Jane's blog and then watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics emoticon I'm sure my DH will snore through most if not all of it emoticon

Tomorrow's our DD 30th birthday party. The theme is "What's It Going To Bee?" She had an ultrasound done yesterday and the results (boy or girl) was sealed in an envelope and given to a local bakery. For dessert the parents-to-be will cut the cake and if it's chocolate inside it's a boy... if it's lemon... a girl. DH and I are wearing yellow to the party because we think she's carrying a girl emoticon I'll let you all know when we find out emoticon

Have a great weekend ladies emoticon

Pretty soon you'll be up for a race Jane................lol. It will take time to heal properly so don't push it.
Today is laundry day here. Last nights storms were not all that bad but they sure did tear things up on their way here.............and surprise, surprise!!!!! more storms predicted for this afternoon and this evening..........can't wait.......NOT!!! We are in need of a drying off period so we can get our potatoes out of the ground..............the vines have all died off now. Not sure what will happening with my green beans..........they were to have bean bush beans but they are pole beans and I have not poled them,. They are thick as fleas on a dog laying there all entwined around each other................and where Thelma can't see where her feet goes............then Thelma does not go there

Walked around the house with the walker today! What freedom! My foot and leg are a little sore but I think that is to be expected.

Hope to take a real shower tomorrow. I will not do it without someone here encase I have a problem although I do not plan to have a problem.

Jane, will be heading there to read after here.
SPEEDY, DH has followup appt this Friday coming......Thank you for asking.......and yes he is biting at the bit to get on the riding mower and I am looking forward to help with this 50 acres to mow (well not really 50 but sure feels like it).
Mowed some last night while he was tinkering in the shed.............right now I am fearful of getting into yellow jacket nest in ground as I mow...........while watering my plants one night there was a swarm around my feet..........luckily I was not stung but it amazes me since I had just watered the night before and nothing!!! Those little buggers set up house real quick like.

I cannot get into my church building so not able to attend. I really miss it.

Woke up about midnight with pain in the arch and ankle of my left foot. Took a long time to go back to sleep. My son took the day off from work and we went to the doctor. I either sprained my left foot or pulled a ligament...

The pain medicine I have been on since I left Kentucky is addictive and looses its potency over time so more is needed. Doctor is weaning me off the stuff. If it isn't one thing then it's another...

I do have a pain medicine and now working on getting off the other without being in too much pain.

This is a repeat from another team but it will have to do. emoticon

Good evening ladies,,, DH and I took the whole day just for us. Hung out in our pool. The air was over 90 degrees, the water was 80 emoticon heaven.

We picked all our corn... very disappointing crop this year. The tortoises are eating like Kings so not a total loss. Some of our sunflowers are 10 feet high sooooooooooo beautiful emoticon

Actually not skipping but to use the walker I had to hop some. That is part of the reason the therapist said to wait until I can put some weight on my right foot. I could not lift my body up to move the left foot forward. Was doing this when one of my sons were around or a therapist but not when alone.

I use to teach my kindergarten students to skip by skipping with the and saying step hop, step hop, step hop... until they got the idea.

Gray, I do understand what you are saying. I am a retired teacher and at 67 still do not have medicare because I do not have enough Social Security quarters because Gov. Guam would not let us buy into it for many years. I do have the local insurance but found out that when off island I am getting socked. My broken ankle occurred where the hospital is not an approved one by my insurance company. Real bummer.

I am doing OK as far as the ankle goes as far as I know. I am keeping the weight off my foot and finding I am getting around better on the one foot. I have not hopped or skipped for a few years and trying to do it now is a real challenge. Hopefully when I can put some weight on my foot I will be able to use the walker and get around out of the wheelchair.

Take care all.

Jane

Talk about medical bills... since turning 65 and getting medicare all my so called co-pays are way more than what I was being charged as a cash patient or self payer for the last 20 years.. Example regular visit to my cardiologist normally I paid $65.00. With Medicare... They charged Medicare $220.00... Medicare pd. $103.87... my co-pay $116.00 emoticon emoticon NOT exactly what I was expecting emoticon

Glad you are exercising Jane... still waiting for the story of your fall.

I need to figure out how to count the exercises I am doing for my legs with SP. I do end up in a sweat when I am through. I am trying to keep/get my legs strong so when allowed to use my right foot the rest of the leg and the left leg are strong enough to support them with my weight.

Got the bill for the x-rays that were taken before surgery on my ankle. There was one for my chest. I think the doctors wanted to confirm that my heart and lungs would take the stress of the operation. I really thank God that I was at the hospital in Paducha, Kentucky. The medics made the choice and took me over the state line to the best orthopedic hospital and doctor in the area.

Hope all is well with everyone.

We are still cleaning up from our camping trip... had a wonderful time. Was surprised to come back to rain but good for our garden. Our 93 year old neighbor was in a nursing home the whole time we were gone (low sodium levels/bladder infection) I'm going to be even more of her care taker than I have been so less Sparking for me for awhile. I will still be around just not racking up the same SparkPoints emoticon

Glad you can do what you need to do at home...........I always hated to leave home, and then to have someone to take time out of their day to do so.
Glad that you lost some weight but a heck of a way to do it..........bra's~ I normally don't wear them unless i go out in public or expecting company. I tell my cousin that you don't strap on a holster if there are no guns to put in them..... emoticon emoticon

I saw the physical therapist yesterday. Because of the condition of my left knee he suggested I do the same exercises I am doing with my right leg and not try to use the walker until it is time to start putting some weight on my right foot. I do not need to go in for therapy as long as I do it at home. He does want me to do things to strengthen my arms so I can use the walker properly.

I have lost some weight... My bra fits better than it has for a long time.. emoticon

Hope you all are doing fine.

Jane

Hey team, have you seen the new emotions? The team leaders have been asking SP to add some and they have! Enjoy using them.

I have missed welcoming some new members so if some of you can give me their names I will make sure they have been welcomed by the team. It may have been taken care of but I so not want to slight someone.

Have a great day...

Congrats to Granny on baby Charles........Jane ,back in Guam.......heal fast!!!
SPEEDY.......never let the kid in you grow up!!! Somehow i don't think I have to tell you that.
Been overwhelmed with the heat wave we are having.............I am not a fan of extreme heat or extreme cold.......I like the "tween". Don't know if it is the weather or not but my feet/legs are killing me.........last night it seemed being in the pool helped some so looking forward to it this evening again .........that is if one of those nasty-butt storms we have been having does not spoil things. Everyone have a good one now!!

Hello, to all. Our grandson has arrived and we will be moving our trailer up to the campground close to our DD's . I haven't been on much just to log in. The little guy is here and mom is a bit overwhelmed right now so we will stay close by to help her. Charles is baby's name after his dad. His birthweight was 6 lbs. now it is down a few ounces and that is very normal. He needs sunlight a few times a day for jaundice, being monitored for his weight and jaundice. It may be necessary to have him return to hospital for a few days.
Jane, glad you are back and praying for your good recovery.
have a good day everyone and I'll check in when I can.

Hafa Adai everyone!
I am home since Sunday night. First time on the computer. I will blog about my accident when I get my act together more.

I will try to catch up on the reading of this site as I can.

I cannot put any weight on my right foot for 6 to 8 weeks from the break and perhaps longer due to my age and weight. We will see.

Hope all is well with you all.

Jane, back on Guam

I LOVE TO FISH!!!!! But have not done any this year yet and only went once last year.....thinking I will have to go myself since DH does not have the time or inclination to do so.
Weather is to get hotter............YIKES!!! And the storms that hit Friday evening left us without power from 9:30 pm Friday to 3 am Sunday. We are very fortunate to get power back on since so many are still without.........my heart certainly goes out to them and the ones that are repairing the lines for sure.........what a job they must have. God keep them safe.
Oh dear....just checked the radar and looks like more storms heading our way.....Mother Nature will be putting on her own show of fireworks
Everyone have a safe and happy 4th

Another emoticon emoticon emoticon we went and shopped for fishing tackle and got our fresh water fishing licenses for our up coming family camping trip. I will be using my dad's pole this year... just a little way of honoring all the years he was so patient with my brothers and I and all his grandkids over the years. He loved to fish... I sure miss him emoticon

Speedy (Linda), DH is to return to work on Monday for light duty........he needs to get back to work so he does not drive himself crazy and me along with it.....LOL Is not/ has never been one to be idle so this episode has been trying for us both. He is still not to mow unless it is on LEVEL ground............that ain't gonna happen here at this house. So far I have dealt with the mowing.......pushing and riding and he even bought me an electric weed-whacker that I struggle with since I have arthritus in arms and hands..........not I am struggling with it in my feet and legs................never been one to travel a smooth road it seems. Right now we are in need of rain so the grass is not growing so much and it is blazing hot so since I don't do drastic heat I just watch the grass struggling to grow.......LOL. Perhaps in a month or more he will be able to help out more........I appreciate your asking.
Our garden up to now has looked better than it has for years but like I said the rain would make it so much better. Looks like we have extreme weather going on all over the nation/world.
I do so hope that Jane is doing well.........my heart goes out to her
Well we just got out of the pool so I think I will watch some boob-tube and then off to bed for another HOT day to deal with. Everyone have a good one, will catch up with you all later.........HUGS!!!

Hi ladies......

I haven't heard anything from Jane since her accident... I know Jo Ann is here in CA from WA to be with their DD as she gives birth. Lori is in the middle of moving so it looks like it's just you and me today GG emoticon How's your DH recovery going? Are you getting some help with the lawn mowing in this heat??

It's HOT here too... been in the 90s emoticon emoticon emoticon

My re-committal to my Spark journey is going very well... We have a lot to look forward to. Our youngest DD is due with their 1st baby in 6 months emoticon so I want to be in even better shape by then to help them out emoticon emoticon

Have a lovely day grandmas emoticon

emoticon for all the best wishes ladies. The weekend was emoticon and since it was so full of milestones I've decided to use all three celebrations as a finish-line and to "start again" fresh today emoticon

I remember how excited I was when I joined SP... full of promise and ready to change my life. I've had a lot of success in 2 years but I've also stalled on the weight loss. So with a BIG birthday, a Spark anniversary and the completion of my 100 day challenge met I'm starting again with a re-newed Spark in my step on this healthy journey emoticon emoticon emoticon

Here's to another week ahead emoticon Spark On emoticon

Donna (SUGARSMOM) don't feel funny. I envy you being able to stay in the same place. I really was heart broken when we had to leave the town in Texas that I loved and had made friends there (when I was a child). My dad traveled because of his job. It was really hard in ways for me but I made new friends in each place we lived.
Our home in southern CA had a small town feel when we first moved there (my dh and I) . Everything gradually changed in the area as our children all grew up. that's the reason we moved here in WA after the children all moved away. We live in a wooded area here and a small community.
Yes, I think we have to take the good and the bad where we are and blessings.
I'm tired, I just want to stay home but want to be with our DD and our new grandchild.

No need to feel funny! That's neat that your roots go deep into the area where you live. While I enjoy meeting new people and building new friendships, I miss those with whom I've had a friendship for years; there is nothing like a friend who has been through your past good and bad times. Not to mention the blessing of having relatives near by. I grew up seeing my grandparents 3-4 times a year and that was good. But my kids grew up with my parents living close by, and that was even better. My oldest 2 grandsons are almost 10 and 12. I don't really know them the way I would like because they first lived in Denver, and now in West Virginia. You just don't have the closeness that way. So there's good and bad in things, no matter where your life takes you. My 2 younger grandkids are the ones I just spent 2 months with. I wasn't able to do that when the others were young, since I was a working, single mom then. Life happens the way it happens, and we just have to look for the blessings.....they are there in each of our circumstances.

BTW I was born in southern California, but left there before I was 3, so I don't remember anything of that.

I'm not sure what you mean by the exercise thing on your page. Can you describe it more, please?

Have a blessed Thursday, Gmas.....I'm still sorting and packing, sorting and packing....right now I don't see how we will be totally out of here in a week. My loving DH better get HIS rear in gear!!

Lori, we live on Camano Island, about 60 miles north of Seattle. We use to come up here on vacations and when our twins were toddlers we bought the land. Our jobs kept us in CA and I think it was a wise decision to wait to move here when we retired. We live in southern CA during the winter now.

Jane, you never cease to amaze me. I know your faith helps you get through tough times like this. Hugs!

Jane - - I am so sorry to hear about your fall! I am praying for you, and I have to say that you seem to have a great attitude about it! You sound pretty chipper, there! Glad you are getting good care. I will continue to keep you in my prayers.

Joann - - where in Washington do you live, if you don't mind me asking? I grew up in the Bellingham area.....we moved there when I was 3, and I lived there till I was 15.....we lived in 4 places in town, then moved out into the county, and went to school in Lynden, then moved to Custer. My parents met in Blaine when they were working at the same place, and they lived in Blaine for a bit, as well. After that we moved to Tonopah, NV, then to the east side of the Cascades to Winthrop, after I married I lived in the Tri-Cities (Kennewick, Pasco, & Richland) on the Columbia River, Spokane for a short time, then back to Beatty NV, then Wells, NV, then moved to Heber City, UT and then Pahrump, where I spent the next 21 years. NW Washington will always feel like home to me, though I am a desert rat now.

Well, I'd best get on with things so I can keep packing....ugh.......but, no choice there!

Have a great hump day, ladies!

Hey you all! Thank you so much for the prayers and well wishes. When I feeling better... and probably on my computer at home I will write a blog about my fall and injury. I have received excellent care at the Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Kentucky. Lord willing I will be moving to a hospital in LA that my insurance is more willing to pay the bill tomorrow.

Take care everyone!

Jane, not on Guam

I hope everyone continues to share about their moves while growing up.

... in the mean time I just wanted to interject that Jane is in the hospital with a broken tibia just above the ankle. I don't know any thing more other than she's had to trim her trip and it sounds like she will not be doing that walk to Rosie The Riveter in honor of her mother so I know she would appreciate our prayers. I was extra careful when I took my walk last night I just couldn't get her out of my mind. You just don't know when things like this are going to happen emoticon Get well Jane.

When I was growing up we moved a lot, Calif. Texas and Arizona. After dh and I married we moved to an old house and had fun redoing it. Our children all grew up there. We still have the house, it's in CA. When all the kids left and we retired we built a smaller house on land we bought 25 yrs. ago in pacific northwest (WA state. It is so much easier to take care of. A friend lives in our CA house and we live down there during the winter months. I had many things I had to store and luckily there is room in the old house for that. Most of the furniture we have here in WA is things we purchased at yardsales, thrift stores. except for the beds. It was fun making our money stretch and recylce. Moving is a lot of work.

Since Jon and i have been married, we've only moved once, from Southern Nevada to here, southern Arizona. Just about the time we decided to get married, he was called out of his retirement from the National Guard for a year in Iraq. When he got home from there, we talked about it, and since he only had 6 years more to serve on active duty to get full retirement benefits, we decided that would be worth it. I figured that we'd move a couple times, and I thought that might be fun to see other parts of the country......but he's been stationed here the whole time! I moved down almost 5 years ago after my daughter graduated high school. We are staying in this area because we like the high school here for our youngest.

I grew up moving often (not due to military....just life!), and then I spent over 20 years in Nevada before moving here. I just feel like we have to move twice.....most stuff is going into storage while we stay with a friend for 1-3 months. Not my first choice, but necessary right now. So I'll deal with it.

I think I'm anxious to find a house that has enough room for all our stuff. This place, while nice, didn't really have enough space to it. But, hey, I'm flexible!!

Have a good day y'all!
Lori

How many moves have you made Lori?

I was born about 40 miles from here. Lived for 15 years in the same house. Moved the day I graduated from High School to 15 minutes from here. Bought our fist house and lived there for 4 years.... moved into this house forty years ago this September. Besides moving to Ft. Gordon Georgia for 5 months when my husband finished up his duty in the Army after serving in Viet Nam, I've moved 4 times in 65 years.

On the other hand my DH moved every two years growing up until he was 16, then several more times until we married almost 32 years ago. We were married in this house and all but one child was born here. The kids and grandkids don't know any where else. Hard to imagine having to moving on.

Actually, the 70+ pounds I've lost has allowed us to stay so I can use the stairs to get to bed each night emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thank you. The Signal Ball is formal, and I'm gonna wear a dress that I wore to my oldest son's wedding. It's a little snug, but that way I don't have to buy a dress. I'll post a picture tomorrow.

Have a great Father's Day weekend!

Best wishing Lori with your DH's retirement. I'll bet the Ball is a full dressed occasion. I do hope you enjoy every moment of it and your move goes smoothly.

GG, I tried to send you that beautiful wedding cake SparkGoodie a couple days ago but Sparkpeople was doing maintenance and it just didn't work. I'm glad to see you got one from another SparkFriend.

Jo Ann, how's your DD doing... if I remember correctly this will be a very blessed event.

We are hosting Father's Day this Saturday and so far our pool motor went out and now our ice machine in the frig won't work *shrugs* oh well, everything will work out fine emoticon

Goodnight all emoticon

My goal today is to get 10 boxes packed. I'm still feeling under the weather, but the 30th is coming up too fast for me! We've lived here on post for 5 years.....amazing how much you can accumulate in a few years!

I do have to rest today, too, so I'm feeling better, since tomorrow night is a formal ball. The only one, and last one, that DH and I will attend with the Army. I really don't want to be miserable!! Besides, the tickets are paid for!!

Y'all have a blessed day!

I had a busy day. We took our truck to get it tuned up and I went shopping for an outfit for my
dd's baby that is due in July. Then took a walk this afternoon to my neighbor's house to check on things while she is away. so I got plenty of exercise. A good day.

Thanks for the anniversary wishes........after returning home from work DH and I decided to do something that we have talked over for a long time now and threw caution to the wind and did it........but only got half accomplished. We CLEANED PART OF THE BASEMENT!!! LOL Happy Anniversary to us!! We figured he has to go to therapy on Thursday so with price of gas we will dine out that day.........doesn't have to be the day of and the basement was in dire need of attention. I handled all the lifting and he sorted..........looks nice and clean right now...........wish we could learn to keep it that way........LOL

GRAYGRANNY Congratulations!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon That is awesome.....42 years!!! I hope we make it that many.....we'd both be 88, but since I plan to live to be 100, who knows????

I'm glad to be back sparking.....keeps my focus where it should be! TTYL, I'm working on my computer work, then will pack more boxes......we have SO MANY books!!!! emoticon I think that both DH and I qualify as book-oholics!!!

Oh, and we are moving off of Fort Huachuca into Sierra Vista, since we are staying in this area.....DH retires on 30 June, so we have to move....I hate moving!!!! But it will be nice to hopefully have more room!!

Have a blessed day!!!
Lori

After being MIA for April and May while playing with my youngest grandkids, I'm finding it hard to catch up!! Plus, I got sick........and I didn't have that in my schedule! Hopefully by laying low and resting today, I will be up to par tomorrow.

I do have to do a little bit of homework today.........sure don't feel like it. But, that's the way it goes.

Hope y'all have a great Sunday!

We went to a flea market sale today and I found a couple of things. Then I walked in the woods this afternoon.

Pushed mowed 6 hours today and that was just cutting in so I can finish up with riding mower tomorrow. I told DH that we are not able to keep this up for long..........and with me the only one to be doing the mowing it is way more than I care to handle. My elbow I killing me. I am so afraid that it maybe the same thing I had a few years ago and had to have shoulder surgery. I don't think I could handle that all over again for it was more pain than i would ever want an enemy to go through.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!!

Good morning, ladies!! Today I only have one appointment and one "I want to"......tonight the Army Band is putting on a concert in the park......free.....so I'm hoping we can make it to that. In between, trying to get some packing done, since we move at the end of June.

Have a blessed day!!

Good evening ladies.... I'm off to play BUNKO with my friends tonight. I've won big the last three months so I hope they let me in emoticon The weather has really warmed up here... very little June gloom and if its overcast it burns off quickly and that ole' sun is HOT emoticon Summer is here I do believe emoticon

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, we have a bachelor friend who stays in our CA house while we live up here in WA. It is a big relief knowing he is there. There are more good things about it than bad. We are blessed to have him.


One day at a time.

Had a good day with my church family.

I may have done something foolish by allowing my eldest son to crash here while I am gone. He moved to Guam from Saipan last summer and is working at getting a new job. It may be good to have someone in the house.

We will see.

One more day and then I fly!

Jane

Roz, I'm sending prayers to you and your family. That is good that you have started walking again.
Jane, have a wonderful trip and be safe.
I enjoyed my day . We went to a couple of rummage sales. One for the local animal shelter and the other one for the elementary school in the town very close by. The children had painted wonderful banners to advertize the school sale. Lots of books and household items and I bought a few things. I found a carved horse and lizard at the animal shelter sale for two of the grandchildren.
My daughter Elizabeth's baby is due on July 9th and we will be driving down to CA in a couple of weeks to be with her.
Hi to everyone!
Jo Ann

Jane-------Have a good trip, you'd be surprised how quickly the time will go by.

It has been a while since I've actually posted as I've been taken up with our daughter's wedding and also trying to cope with my husband's illness,it is only the grace of God and the prayers and encouragement from all of you my friends that is seeing me through .
We are not accepting the diagnosis but are thankful that his surgery went well and that life must go on.
We have decided that this must be happening to bring us even closer as a family and to God, we will not moan or complain but give God all the praise for what he is doing in our life.
I actually started walking again kast week after a long break.
Have a blessed one everyone!
Roz.

Prov. 3: 5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE shall direct your paths.

Nehemiah 9:17 NIV
...But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love

Mowed lawn today so pretty tired now. DH is feeling better........thanks to those that wished him well. Sure has been a trying time for him and me to watch him go through it. Not a person to sit around so this is not going down well with him. Hoping soon he will get well enough to walk the Rails 7 Trails for exercise
