Dad died on Friday morning. Dad had made all the arrangements before he died so my brother and I would not have to deal with it. It was considerate of him. Dad told me he did it a while back. The funeral is not for a while as the funeral home is backed up. I am kind of relieved for that. I think my mothers went too quickly and I was in total shock. Hubby got his suit out today for the funeral later in the week. It is only a little over a year old. I got my clothes out. He washed the truck and is waxing it. I have been cooking food for the next couple of days.

Blocker had dental surgery in St. Louis yesterday. Traffic was awful and we were rear-ended near the bridge by some kid texting. No damage to the truck or us. He had a small car and we have big truck. He hit us hard but he hit our trailer hitch which damaged his vehicle. He didn't stop. We didn't get the license number as it was damaged. Blocker is tired but doing okay too. She is eating good.

how is everything going MORTICIAADDAMS?? I've lost 5 lbs since I started the Good Gut diet last Sunday and my FBS sugar this morning was 94- haven't seen that for several months now, so I'm feeling good about that. One more week of really low carbs and then I can start bringing back the good carbs Have a super week

Thank you. I am home. Worn out. Not able to be in 2 places. Waiting to hear from family or hospital. They say they will call and don't. Blocker is having more problems and we having to get her out and push her to eat sometimes. She is having surgery in several days.

It sounds like a wonderful Memorial Day program. I think we are getting rain tomorrow.

My father is dying. He has been in ICU, & will be on hospice if he makes it out of the hospital, which is doubtful. My uncle, brother, and I are with him as much as possible. They live close by, I don't. So we are on the road, at home taking care of the pets before we go, or with him. Blocker, pet chinchilla, is needing dental surgery out of state soon so we will have to arrange that and take care of her post op in the middle of this as we have no choice. My allergies are bad but I am doing okay otherwise. I can eat and I slept last night finally. We actually managed to get the family graves decorated while down there while my uncle was with Dad.

the Memorial Service was a big hit again, a lot of singing from the different Churches, one 13 year old girl sang Heros, there wasn't a dry eye in the Church, a couple of Veterans got up and spoke. all in all he did another great job. It's raining this morning and I don't know when I'll be able to mow the lawn.

yesterday was a beautiful day, didn't do too much at work, too many other things going on. This morning it is in the low 40's and I'm a little chilly. We're going to a Memorial Service this afternoon, one of the guys from Church is putting it together, he did it last year at our Church and did such GREAT job, this year there are 7 other Churches involved.

That is really a short Spring and Fall!!! I will trade you winters. LOL. What I actually meant is that your winters are actually comparable to our springs. Our average high in January is 38 and yours is 64. And we get on average 4 inches of snow in January and you get none. We have to wait until April until no snow and to have temps similar to your January temps. You are hotter in summer than we are. Our average high in August is 86 and yours is 92.

More than 2 and NOT spring/summer.

Spring - mid-March thorough mid-April (if we are lucky!)
Summer - late April through mid-October (at least!)
Autumn - mid-late October through late in November
Winter - December through early-to-mid-March

It's just that winters seem to be getting warmer and summer lasts longer than ever. If we were reduced to just two seasons, it would be summer and autumn. Spring doesn't last but a few weeks.

You have 2 seasons - spring and summer. We have 2 also - winter and summer. I like Spring and the first part of Fall. The last part of fall here is like winter. Summer is too hot and muggy.

Thanks Ladies, I guess I just keep going til I drop. I was mowing the lawn yesterday and almost got it done when I thought it was steering funny, I looked down and the front tire was coming off the rim, I made it back to the barn and called the place where we got the tractor, they had one in stock, brought it back and I had one of the guys who works at the Town Garage put it on the rim for me, then I had my bro-in-law put it on the tractor, so I got to finish the lawn.
I guess it pays to know people

I totally agree with Liz. You are being very patient and kind about this. Years ago I had to work 15 nights straight of 10 hour minimum shifts to cover for really sick coworkers. I was sick too but was not as sick as they were. I wanted to help but it was exhausting. I could not have done it for another day. So I hope you are pacing yourself and that your employer rewards you for this.

Janice, you are a wonderful person - concerned for your co-workers welfare rather than resenting the extra that you do because she is out. I know many a person who would fall into the latter and even believe the co-worker was "faking it". Or maybe that only happens if you are a "salaried" employee. If you don't get paid for hours that you don't work, I guess that would be a disincentive to play hookey.

Anyway, my point is that you are a caring person and I find that very nice.

They may need to try another med. I have been on some I just could not tolerate. Hopefully she is better soon.

she stopped in Fri to us, she was out talking with the boss before she came into the store, she is feeling better but still not up to par, she said she feels bad to leave me with all the work, I told her not to worry about but to take care of herself first and not worry about this place. So hopefully she'll be back before long.

Surely they will get her meds lined out soon. If they can't get her regulated she may have to to put her notice in.

Happy Mother's Day to you too!

I'm struggling with diet and exercise. Good days and bad days and they all need to be good ones. It's my busiest month and I have too much on my plate.

That is great!! What will they do with the money?

I got the cleaning, vacuuming, and laundry done and have started some paper work.

I hope the church did well too!

It is sunny and warm here and we are doing some work outside in the garden and yard.

we had a great day for the Yard Sale, the rain cleared up and the sun came out (not too strong)a little problem with the wind, and I had a good day at the store, but by the time closed the store everyone was gone from the Church- so I don't know how they made out with their sale. I'll find out today at Church

It's great that the two locations where you need to be are so conveniently located! I usually travel quite a bit to get from one place to another.

Good Morning all, it was raining lightly when I got up at 4:45am, I'm still confident that the rain will let up for us, unfortunately I have to work at the whse/store today, my co-worker is still not doing too well on her meds. I'll be able to help at the Church to bring stuff out and the good thing is the Church is right across the street from the store. Have a good weekend

I wish we had a town wide yard sale. I hope it doesn't rain and you have a good sale.

I'm not phobic either. I'm just cautious, a realist. I have identity theft protection but it doesn't stop any determined hacker. I'm only on sparkpeople too but they are tracking me and putting out ads specifically geared for me. I have received info from businesses I deal with telling me that they have been hacked. Places like Target, BCBS, At&T, Sony, the USPS, Staples, KMart, Walmart, CVS, Home Depot, Verizon, UPS, etc. Like you, I have no choice but to deal with some of these businesses. We are all at risk without choice.

I choose not to be phobic and, other than Spark, I am not involved with social media which I don consider a very unsafe place to be for multiple reasons.

The nearest branch of our credit union, of which we've been members for over 30 years, is 180 miles away. I don't really have much choice other than to do my banking online. We keep a small account locally but the bulk of our cash assets remains with our primary credit union. I have never had any issues.

I agree with MORTICIAADDAMS, I don't like to do much ordering online. we have our yearly Town wide yard sale this Sat. I was supposed to help the Church do the selling stuff but my co-worker Is still not feeling well, they can't get her heart medication right. My boss asked me yesterday if we should close the store and I told him NO, that's the best selling day. and on top of that it's supposed to rain, we've been saying Prayers for if it does rain, to hold off until the sale is done. Have a great weekend all

y brother is a computer trouble shooter for the state of Illinois. There is no safety where computers are involved. The problem is usually not the individual anyway but the people you do business with who are being hacked into. They have all of your personal info on file and people harvest that info all the time even when they are not selling it outright. Computers are a liability in my opinion. I prefer to do business in person when possible.

I keep my banking/insurance/retirement activity separate from all other online activity, including a different e-mail address. Since I never do business via Wifi, I am not overly concerned about safety issues. I do not do foolish things.

I don't like to do any business online due to privacy issues. I have even stopped using almost all social media due to it.

Well, it sounds like you have good reason to be aggravated! I have learned to LOVE online chat when dealing with any customer service. I have yet to "meet" an agent who could not be of assistance with my issue.

Have you considered switching to electronic billing? I only have a few bills that still come in the mail and the majority (can you have a majority from only half a dozen?) are standard amounts so the bank is already scheduled to pay them for me at the appropriate time. My Forever stamps truly do last nearly forever because I rarely need to mail anything anymore!

It sounds like the Day-Hab is a great business. Maybe you should write an online recommendation for them. I often do. In contrast, yesterday I talked to a service representative who admitted that she didn't know how to operate the phone or how to help me. It seems to me that operating a phone is inherent to this kind of job. I was requesting my bill, to know how money I owe, because the bill is overdue as they have not sent it. They are always late sending the bill but they do nothing to correct that. My bill is due on the 1st but I will be lucky to have it by the 5th so I have no choice but to pay it late. The representative didn't know how much I owed and didn't know how to reach the finance department who could tell me. I'm always polite to these people but someone like this is absolutely incompetent. In her defense, she obviously is poorly trained. A typical person in this position would request the customer to hold on while they get someone who could help. I'm certain that you are absolutely right, Liz, and that this person is overworked, underpaid, and feeling disrespected, disregarded and generally unhappy. I was in the same position at one place where I worked. It was a very toxic work environment so I understand. The difference between these people and me was that I was competent and did my best regardless of how I felt about my work environment and I feel everyone should do the same. Years ago when I was complaining about how unfair things were where I worked a senior employee told me that things had always been unfair there and they always would be and the best thing to do if I didn't like it was to find somewhere else to work. At the time I didn't like the remark but after I thought about it, it made sense to me. She wasn't been mean to me but was just pointing out the truth. I was the one beating the dead horse. This wasn't a place dedicated to fulfilling my dreams but their own substandard ones. I took her advice and left. My employers were very upset that I was leaving but it was for the best for both of us. I would not have wanted to come to the point where I was a rude, lazy, incompetent employee like so many other employees there. I went to work for a place where I was the boss and I made sure that everything was fair and that the employees were treated well. The patients and employees appreciated the changes I made. I I got the respect I deserved. If you take a job you have a responsibility to do it to the best of your ability and if you don't want to then the right thing to do is to step aside and allow someone else who may appreciate the job to fill it. Occasionally I go to some fast food place where they work is really hard and they are paid very little. Sometimes you get waited on by someone who is eager to work, friendly, competent and in a good mood and when I do I think that this is someone I would want to hire if I had a business. Customer service is an important job.

the handicapped woman that I take to appts. had a play/singing with her Day-Hab, I went to it to show her some support, I tried to get her father to go, to no avail. It was actually quite a show, the workers and the people do such a great job, it's always a fun time for all.

Maybe they are simply overworked and underpaid. It is difficult to stay focused, happy and helpful if you are feeling disrespected, disregarded and generally unhappy in your work.

Yesterday I had a great day and got everything done on my to-do list, mostly because it was all dependent on me. Today I had to depend on other people to help me and it was an irritating day as they are incompetent and terrible at their jobs.

Yes, on the "My Trackers" drop down box at the top of the page, select "Other Goals" then enter what it is you want to track and how often (daily, 3xweekly, etc). As Morticia notes. it works great! Also, after getting your goal(s) set up, go to "My Streaks", also under the trackers tab and set up a Spark Streak tracker on that goal for a clear view of how you are doing over time.

I had planned on checking since she was so confused but wanted to wait until the government has a chance to send them the info as they said they won't officially change things until the do.The government told me to call them but they say that isn't the way to do it. Excuses!

Oh, I DO hope she still has your DH covered. Is it possible to call again and speak with a different rep to be certain?

I cannot say how much I detest outsourced customer service or hiring reps who cannot speak (and understand) clear English. I've become VERY fond of online chat since most reps seem to be better at the written word.

I hope the Legion appreciates all of your hard work, Janice. We live in the woods and have given up on grass. Moss is taking over.

I finally got some info from Medicare but still not my card. I want to get a good check up after I get my Medicare stuff set up right. I reached an outsourced service representative with limited understanding of English when I wanted to discontinue MY insurance at the end of the month as my Medicare starts on May 1st. She screwed up and discontinued hubby and me both and then after she straightened that up she disconnected me immediately instead of the end of the month like I asked. I gave up before she messed something else up again as she was flustered and rude and I was getting to be the same. So I have no insurance right now. She was the worst service representative I have ever talked to.

I got out my handheld spreader and put some fertilizer on the bare spots on the lawn, did a little raking before the rain set in. Next week I'll put on some grass seed and hope it comes up, I would rather mow grass, not dirt. This Fri is the last dinner at the Legion for the summer, yeah.
No more having to think about what to prepare, go get the groceries for it and then prep it.

Most of the jobs I have had involved very little sitting. My dad's didn't either but my mom's jobs did.

I tell my hubby the same thing. I don't want to be changing the spark plugs and oil in the car.

Well. I'm not all that good at sitting down either - unless I'm on the computer. After a career of desk jobs, I prefer to move it.

DH is quite good at saying "I could show you how..." or "Maybe I should teach you how to...' Fortunately I am just as good at saying "No, thank you dear. I already have enough to do" or "No, thanks, I don't really caret to know. I'd rather that you do it". The male gender is quite good at trying to shift responsibilities...as we ladies well know!

My parents actually programmed me to work like a dog. They worked hard and played hard and the work was done first. My mom and dad made it all look easy because they had tons of energy. They never sat down and then they got old and sick and finally had to sit down and they hated it.

wait....what?? I had to reread your other post when you said your DH wanted to add to your to-do list. shouldn't it be the other way around? I have to agree with TALLYFLA you do way to much MORTICIAADDAMS. Thank goodness I got the lawn mowed yesterday because today it is raining and more for tomorrow, so if I don't get the lawn mowed first part of the week I may as well forget it. When I got home from my cleaning job there was a message from my boss at the whse, he's sicker than a dog and he wanted me to go check the messages at the whse, we have a Hazardous waste day this Sat. and he can't get to work so I went in to make some phone calls to get people set up to bring their stuff in to get rid of. It took me about an hour, I told my boss not to worry about paying me, I don't mind helping out when needed.Hope everyone if feeling better today.....

I hate forgetting the laundry in the washer!

I have trouble sleeping on that side too and it is my favorite side to sleep on.

Actually hubby was a Mr. Mom years ago. Our child was chronically sick and the plant that hubby worked at had closed. Daycares here don't take kids like this and I could make more money than him so he stayed home for a while. It was a nightmare. I worked long days. I didn't say much but I still had most of the work to do. We ate homemade chili so much that I can hardly stand to look at it now. The hamper was never empty - the laundry never done. The house a mess. I would come home from work to our son and him in matching tightie whities. They had not dressed all day. So the answer is that he would most likely fix chili and eat it for days. I would slowly starve or die from exposure to filth. My standards are high and his are low. Like most men. When I was sick my mother would help me. She was still alive then.

Multi-tasking doesn't work well for me, either. I get lots of things part done and nothing truly accomplished. I put the last load of laundry in so late yesterday afternoon that I forgot it and had to put in in the dryer this morning.

Sorry about your leg - I know what it's like to have discomfort interrupt a decent nights' sleep. Mine often bothers me but it is not arthritis - not sure of the cause but I still can't sleep on that side most of the time and sometimes it aches even when I am not on it.

You do too much! I know you feel that you need to but it surely isn't helping you treat yourself kindly! What would your DH do if you just couldn't?!?

My leg is slowly getting better but I am still having issues with it, often at night. It was bothering me last night and this morning too. Mondays are my busy days with laundry and cleaning so I have to pace myself. I work for a while and then rest and use the computer briefly and then go back. This morning my hubby wanted to add to my to-do list and I balked. He was irritated. When he is sick, which is rarely, he goes to bed and stays there and is waited on. When I'm sick nothing changes and I still have the same amount of work to do. I find a way to get it done if at all possible. If I have to do it in a wheelchair or with a cane or walker then I do my best to take care of the house, pets, yard, chores, 3 meals, laundry, shopping, cleaning, dishes, mail, bills, trash, etc. I'm not complaining and I don't expect to be catered to but I don't expect to be dumped on either. The other day I made a list of everything I needed to get done that day and there was 35 things so my days are full. So hopefully he will come home in a better mood or I will have to beat him to death with a spatula which is hard with my leg hurting like it does. LOL.

I am not organized today!!! I got off on a tangent and thought I had the washer on and it wasn't. I got the bathroom half cleaned and the vacuuming half done and had to go back and finish them. I need to stop multitasking. It doesn't work for me!

Your poor co-worker. That is horrible. You were kind to let him off.

Sunny and warm today. Hubby is transplanting some plants and gardening and I have been busy doing some indoor and outdoor chores plus some batch cooking.

I had to work alone yesterday, my helper couldn't make it in, his dog was hit & killed and he was too upset to work. He stopped by and I went out to his truck gave him a hug & told him not to worry about not working. I did miss him, a lot of furniture came in and I had to move it by myself. HAPPY SUNDAY!!

I totally agree. My hubby thinks we should just buy the juice but I don't drink juice.

My leg was horrible until after noon yesterday but finally let up and has been better today.

I know i USED to like pomegranates but I haven't eaten one in decades! I wonder if I would still like them? You are right, Janice...a lot of work!

I think I tend to avoid things that I don't think are all that healthy either. I don't want to get addicted to foods I don't think are good for me. Most of the things I have tried in the past few years are healthy. I tried rutabagas and like them. Mangos. Papayas. Pomegranates. Kiwis.

I haven't had a smoothie, Blizzard or "foo-foo" coffee, either - empty calories. I do eat yogurt regularly and we have French toast for breakfast every few weeks. Yum. I'm not fond of milkshakes or floats and neither of us care for eggplant.

As a Navy wife, I've tried lots of different things over the years but fewer since he retired and we no longer travel the world. My tastes are more discriminating now because I want to know about fat, sodium, calories, chemicals, etc. before it goes into my mouth!

I never got into the habit of thawing out meat in the microwave. I tried it a couple of times and I didn't seem to know what I was doing.

I had not tried a lot of things. I have seen my husband eat peanut butter and jelly. I like both of them separately but have never wanted to combine them. I have been trying more things in the last few years though. I finally tasted a smoothie a few years ago, yogurt, and Blizzards. LOL. I have never had French Toast. Eggplant. A "foofoo" coffee. I've never had a milkshake.Lamb.

Well, if all your meat is frozen and you are in the habit of using the microwave to defrost just before cooking, it makes it more difficult when you lose power just before time to start cooking. I have not developed the art of grilling frozen meat.

I am having trouble envisioning how any American reaches age 65 without ever haven eaten peanut butter and jelly! You have been SO deprived!!! It actually is quite good...making me hungry right now thinking about it!

Cranberry pork chops sound good. We use our grill when the power is out or we have camping stoves.I have never had a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. LOL.

I am not a fan of lasagne either, which is partly why I make it only once or twice a year. DH likes it, it gives us two meals plus a lot of leftovers that I freeze in individual servings. I can either thaw one to go with his lunch salad or, on really unexpectedly hectic days, thaw two for a quick dinner. We had to do that a few weeks ago when we lost power from about 5:30 p.m. until almost 7. No time to cook anything else for dinner and it was better than a PB&J sandwich!

My husband like lasagna but I'm not a fan. I might like the enchilada and turkey ones though.

I don't make many casseroles, either, and avoid those that used canned soup. We do like the SP chicken enchilada casserole and our favorite is my Mother's "Goodbye, turkey!" casserole. It uses homemade white sauce rather than soup. Other than lasagne about once a year, that's it for my casserole repertoire!

I like to occasionally try new recipes but it seems the casseroles rarely work out for us.
