I had such a wonderful time in Branson. Sorry we couldn't stay longer. We just got home. We should have came down last night and then we would have had the whole day. I'm sure dinner was great it sure smelled wonderful!

Don't know about Vegas, that's a bit of a drive. LOL!!

See y'all later.

Evening Seesters. Home for a couple of days. It is always nice to be off. Nice day, nice patients, not a hectic pace. It will be miserable tomorrow with a doubling of the census. I'm not interested in coming in and am glad I'm not available.

Girls, it sounds like a fun time. Las Vegas would give me a chance to show up as my brother lives there. Hate driving in that town. It's easier with GPS, though. Hope pot luck was a little healthy.

Weezie2, sorry the craft fair wasn't what you wanted. I'm glad you have the bigger shows coming up. Making tops for your DD? I have a friend who designs her own scrub tops. Now that we all have to wear navy scrubs it takes the fun out of them. One year she made a top for every nurse for her birthday.

The dog says I don't love her any more so I'll be playing with her in a minute. Showing the house again tomorrow. Brother seems willing to give ground to get the house sold. I'm glad. I want to be done.

Hello!! Yes it's me.....I'm still alive! Yesterday was both a great day and not so great! Luke's team won at soccer but Carmen's team got beat in their first game. Brooke's team won their first game but got beat in the final. Lots of tears! Carmen's team got beat in their final game also. Now it is back to regular games and we have 3 this week!! It's a good thing we are retired! I was so tired last night that I didn't sleep well and we got up early this morning to get to early Mass. Did get a nap this afternoon and I'm ready for bed now!!

I'll be back tomorrow to comment on all the posts!

OMG! Judy (SEK) is such a hoot. Her and her DH arrived here around 1PM and stayed until around 4PM. We tried to get her to stay for our potluck but it would have been too late for their arrival back home. We had such a nice visit and PJ, Tammy, and I am so happy they made the effort to come and visit.

I wish them safe travels home. Now we are off and running again for our evening pot luck. I'm afraid even though we are all Sparkers, the food will not be diet friendly, just good!

Going to have a fun day, I'll be heading up to Kelly's to watch the Packer game and make her some new scrubs for work. I think I'll get the trial top made before I go. She heads back to work tomorrow and she's been needing new scrubs.

Have a great Sunday!

Morning!

We are all surprised with all the amenities offered by Treasure Lake RV Resort and are so thankful that Tammy & DH are sponsoring us to be their guests this week. Tammy and I enjoyed line dancing lessons yesterday. We did OK for beginners! We ate dinner last night at the little cafe here in the park. Today several have decided to take in the cinema where they are showing Blended this afternoon and Saving Mr. Banks later.

The girls from this team are excited to have SEK coming to visit today as well. It's such a fun time. We really have a large group this year. We are already thinking where to go next year and Las Vegas has been mentioned!

WG that sounds like a great way to start a shift. I don't miss that sort of thing.

Sorry about the craft thing, that is why I don't do those. I've tried a couple with my products and they always seem to be the ones that nobody shows up at. Too much work for too little profit.

We should be leaving here in a few minutes. Can't wait.

I guess they are driving my boss nuts wanting me to come back to Iowa, but I really don't want anymore of that mess. The pay is good but not that good. Randy (boss) is leaving up to me.

Take care and have a stupendous Sunday!

Had a wonderful first day in Branson with dinner and show. Will start today with a walk with some of the other spark ladies and a potluck this evening. We all arrived safely yesterday at different times so I am anxious to meet and visit with those I havenít met yet.

We have never been disappointed by any of the shows in Branson and last night was no exception. Of course one of our own was part of the entertainment Ė Norm played an instrument on stage (a noise maker horn) but he did a great job.


Judy you will probably have to tell them at the gate that you are visiting Tammy and Joe to get in. If you have any problems give one of us a call.

I go by the name of PJ and live north of KC, MO. Winter in East Texas.

Onward and Downward

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

The craft fair was pretty much as I expected. Not much of a crowd at all so I don't think the advertising was as good as it could have been. I have sold 3 of the midi bags already but only smaller ticketed items sold at this one. I have a month to get our inventory ready for the big holiday push. I have 9 more bags sorted and ready to assemble and projects started last year that won't take long to finish. I want to get more of those mug rugs finished too. I'm real happy how cute they turned out and hope to sell lots emoticon .

Enjoy the rest of your weekend

Hi all.

So glad the bunch of you are together. I'm enjoying the pictures. It is fun to see you all being silly. I'm glad the weather is good for you and you are doing some fun things. I'm sure you will find a fun show tonight. Not sure about the muffler, though. Sounds very down to earth.

Weezie, you are great to have that contact with your granddaughters. The grandsons are going to be easier as the kids aren't as prickly but it will be great for you to spend time with them. The memories are the things the babies take with them. Sounds like you have a lot going on for the rest of the month. Hope you get some "me" time as well.

Weezie2, take care of those knees. That is a lot of up and down. I'm not one to do a lot of stairs any more if I want to walk the next day.

LG, I saw that one team did well. How did the other children do? You are one busy woman.

I walked into a mess this morning. They had a very busy night but there was water running from under a door and a major water mess. Someone had thrown a few towels down and walked away but the water was running out and down the hall. I made some calls and got it stopped but since it is the weekend, it won't be fixed until later. It had been busy enough that some things got missed but it was a good enough day that we caught up and everyone was doing better by the end of the day. Hoping tomorrow is better. At least there won't be water problems.

I'm off to bed. Morning comes very early.

Oh Weezer! Maybe I should come up and drive that way we could see each other! Don't worry about the computer time I'm the same way, I am trying to do better but some days it's a challenge.

OK, we will be on the road about 8 or 9 in the morning. Joshua is not going to be able to make it and he is upset. His boss called and said she needed him to work tomorrow, poor kid, he was looking forward to seeing PJ and meeting the rest of y'all. I'll bring the camera.

This crazy dog of mine is dancing on her hind legs trying to get my attention because I've been at the desk too long. We've been finishing up some school work. Must be time to go.

Take care see some of you tomorrow.

Hey sistas!!

Just read through the thread and I'm tickled you RV'ers are meeting in Branson. What fun for sure and happy you are able to do so. Judy I think it is great you too are gonna try to make a visit. It is pretty amazing how Spark has broadened our horizons and the friendships made. Do hope to hear more for sure.

Weezie, I feel your pain but how nice you're helping Kelly with the bedroom prep. Do hope to hear how the craft show goes as well. I am assuming some of your bags were a part of the many things you've been working on.

LG, you and Thomas Jay are great grandparents attending all the kids' functions. The little gal I work with a young gal (26) who has an 11 year old son. I know, a bit young but regardless she is trying to be a good parent though she had to move in with her mom as she can't afford to live on her own. She was a bit hurt/upset as her son is playing soccer and she wouldn't attend. Her folks are older (60's) and her dad is around and her grandma but none support the little guy by attending. Felt bad for her.

WG, sounds like lots of great memories for the grands for sure. You are fortunate for sure. I saw my younger son yesterday and we had a bit of conversation. Long story but he knows that his wife is the one hurting the girls and he's a doormat. He says, but I've hear it before, that they may finally split. I'll believe it when I see it. He's too afraid to go it alone. Not sure why he is but it seems he is. He's one unhappy young man. Makes me sad. So enjoy your kids and enjoy those little ones. They'll be grown in a blink!

Tammy, PJ, SS, do enjoy the time together and other Spark friends in Branson .DO share if you go to the show and your thoughts. We can live vicariously through you all! LOL

Ava had soccer this a.m. It was chilly and I know her mom so I came prepared so she wouldn't freeze. She's spending the afternoon/evening with us as mom works till 9. We won't see her again till next Friday. She is loving the Montessori school and happy with no having babies around like at the daycare she was at. I know this year will offer up some expense for her mom but this is a good way to prepare her for regular kindergarten next year. It is fun to see her grow.

I've spent time with the boys and they are getting big way too fast. Kason is getting to where we expected and not taking any crap from big bro and big bro doesn't like him in his stuff. Oh the fun they will have. LOL

Fall weather is upon us here in Michigan. Some have mentioned their burning bushes already changed and dropping all their leaves. Ours have not but I'm hoping that is more of a sign of an unhealthy bush than of what the winter may bring. Word is we are to get more snow than last year. I'm happy the generator is in and ready to keep us warm should the need arise.

Monday and Tuesday I go to Lansing with a co-worker for a conference. I should be about done with my certification or hope. The timing is poor but it is what it is. Count day is the 1st and with our new computer system not fully ready to go or the necessary reports out there, I'm trying to remain calm and pray it all comes together. Have no idea what we'll do if not but I also believe we're not alone.

Judy, I still believe you are a saint driving bus. I can't imagine trying to concentrate and screaming kids. Like you said, fortunately a short trip. We are so very desperate for drivers up here it is crazy. I think all the schools are so we'll see what happens. My boss has taken on that hat as well (transportation director) and she's had complaints about none other than the new Supt's kid. This should be interesting to see how she handles this one. Don't envy her.

Now I need to scoot ladies. Been working on laundry after our nap today, and gotta figure dinner.

Sorry I've been MIA. I just am not very diligent about my computer time these days. Please forgive me.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

My knees are screaming at me today! i've been helping Kelly paint her bedroom. Going up and down a step ladder for 2 days did me in. I helped set up for the craft fair today and of course it's up a set of stairs. Great exercise for sure but I need to grab a few advil emoticon

I'm hoping there's a good turnout but I'm not real optimistic about this one.

Have a Great Saturday!

OMG! No one ever is disappointed meeting our Spark Friends. They are just exactly as they post! Half our group has arrived as Tammy mentioned. Yesterday we all went to dinner together and had a lot of fun getting acquainted.

We haven't settled in completely as we have to pull off our lot this morning to get our propane tank filled. After that we are not moving for another week!

Today the sun is eventually supposed to shine on us and high in the upper 60's. After the drizzle of yesterday, it sounds great!

When we were in the restaurant yesterday, a guy heard us discussing all the different shows here in Branson and came over and introduced himself. Turns out he is the owner of one of the theaters and I believe he plays a Muffler Guitar made out of an old car muffler. He invited us to come to his show tonight and gave us half off coupons. So we are all considering taking in that show for sure!

This is a fly-by as we are headed to Luke's soccer and from there we are going to Brooke's volleyball game. From there is anyone's guess!! It will all depend on who wins and who loses! If they both win their first games we will again split up.

All of you in Branson, behave and enjoy!! emoticon emoticon

Hi, Seesters!

SS and Norm did indeed arrive safely. 5 of our group of 10 Sparkfriends are here; the others are coming in today.

It was cool and drizzly yesterday afternoon, but we had fun anyway! Today and tomorrow is still supposed to be cool, but not drizzly, so it should be very nice.

Have a very good day!

We are still traveling down the road to Branson. We should arrive this afternoon. We just went through St Louis and both Norm and I decided we don't like driving in St Louis. Ended up making a wrong turn due to construction that cost us some time.

It is still very dark and overcast but it is not raining (at this minute!)

LG - Yes, Marianne (GLASSART43) will be joining us in Branson. We really enjoyed meeting her and her DH, Pete last year. It will be fun to spend time with them again. I guess SP is a smaller community than I realized and we all are interconnected at some point.

WG - your grandkids will have wonderful memories of their childhood due to all you do. I can only imagine how fun Halloween will be this year for them. It's so nice that you are willing to stay and help out after your shift at the hospital. I wonder how many patients understand the extra time you put in for them.

SEK - Better you than me cause I don't tolerate too much from kids in my old age, lol! Looking forward to meeting you on Sunday!

Oh, Judy, you are my HERO!! I've always said that there is no way I'd drive a school bus or teach without a whip/chair and a weapon!! I know what those kids are like. You are one brave soul!!

Tammy, PJ, Sharon & Judy, enjoy your "SP rally". A gal from one of my other teams will be there too I think. Her name is GLASSART43. Say "HI" from me!!

WG, you are an angel! And I love your blood and worms. I will tell you that a friend of mine made her own "blood" by using red food coloring, powdered sugar and milk. Got it thin and then dared her kids to "drink" it!! It was just an icing like you use on rolls and muffins! Her kids loved it.

We went to Carmen's volleyball game last night. They got beat 2-1 but played well. I'm getting my hair cut today and then I plan to do some sewing. I am loving working on my
paper piecing. Also working on some hand embroidery. Tomorrow will be the big day for sports here. Luke plays soccer and then Carmen plays in a VB tourney across town while Brooke plays in a VB tourney at her school. So we'll be splitting up all day to attend different games. Just hope that I don't meet myself coming and going!! emoticon

WG I used to order from Oriental Trading a lot when I had the day care. You can get so much fun stuff at a great price.

Gals if nothing changes we plan on being in Branson sometime between 12 and 1. It's 3 hours from here and I don't feel the need to leave too early. PJ you can text or give me a call when you get your camp site.

The trip last night was not one of the best, the girls acted like two year olds and would not stop screaming and yelling. I was so glad it was a short distance. I finally got tired of trying to get them to act like mature semi-adults and tried to tune them out. It doesn't help when the people in charge act just as bad as they do. This is why bus drivers can't carry weapons! emoticon

Better sign off. Y'all have a fantastic Friday! TGIF and yes I'm screaming that! LOL!!!

Good evening. Another long day at work. Was ready to go home and ended up taking orders for a new patient as I was clocking out. The nurse was busy. Then a doctor called and I took care of that problem. I then started IVs on the two admissions and did some other things. It was 2 hours later when I left.

Long day.

Tammy, enjoy your break in Branson even if you have to leave and work one day.

SS, enjoy your drive down as well.

PJ, sounds like you are ready to go and will enjoy that extra night

Judy, I'm sure you will enjoy the visit as well.

The rest of us will wait for reports of your adventures.

LG, got the stuff on Oriental Trading. The blood is a one ounce bag of red punch. The brown worms are gummy but they are great night crawlers. It just sounded fun. I think there are better bags of blood but I didn't care a lot. The kids won't either.

Got to head off to bed. It has been a long day.

DH and I are in Branson,and another RV Enthusiasts member and her DH are here as well and we enjoyed a good time visiting at dinner.

I had my PCP visit today and all was great - except my BP. :-(. She told me she wanted me to take it daily for two weeks and call her with the results. I've put some pounds back on as well, so I must start tracking better again.

Had a wonderful lunch and shopping with BFF today. Have clothes all packed will do the food in the morning before leaving. Heading to Truman Lake for 1 night then on to Branson.

LG you need to keep meeting with those ladies once a month if you can. Always good to have friends to meet up with. Sorry about your root canal but I would wait too if it isnít bothering you.

Judy check around Iím sure you could find someone to make that cusion.

Weez2 there are some benefits of getting older. Iím like you I love to paint even better in someone elseís house. I canít wait until son is ready for me to paint in his house.

I'm off to help my daughter paint her bedroom today. Refinishing her wooden floors triggered her wanting to repaint her walls too. I like to paint so it will give me a nice needed break from sewing.

I never thought I would be excited about having turned 60 this last birthday. Jo Ann's had an extra 20% off yesterday for us seniors. It was nice finding fabric on sale and getting another discount with it.

Have a great Thursday!

OK, WG, what will you do with blood and worms? Good Lord, where did you find it and what is it really?? Sounds awful to me!! We had hornets trying to nest in the roof of my potting shed but got rid of them and then sealed it. So good luck with getting that done. They are nasty!

PJ, glad that you were able to get together with your knitting group. I think that the ladies that were here yesterday want to continue to get together maybe once a month. It would be fun. As I know your knitting group must be.

Weezie, so good to see you here. Been a while!! emoticon emoticon

Judy, I have a 9' window seat in my dining room. I had a lady make one for me that matched my wall paper. Now it is looking awful while the wall paper still looks great. I just might call her to see if she could do another one for me. Probably lots of $$! Check with some one who sews to see if they could make you one. Be careful on your bus trip today.

Sharon, drive careful and enjoy your trip too. I just know that you ladies will have lots of fun.

Just got back from a dental cleaning and the dentist wants to do a root canal. Not having any problems with it for now so will wait until November to get it done. Hate that!

SEK - I don't know if you can do this but the cushion on my window seat in the bedroom just kept breaking down and was so expensive to replace. So Norm removed the top of the seat itself and covered it with a good piece of carpet using heavy duty carpet staples. Then we could lift off the cover and use the inside for storage (we lined it) and still have a comfortable seat to sit or lay on. Plus the cushion was always out of place as the GK's loved to play on it. The carpet always was perfect!

Well, we are on our way to Branson. Left home around 9AM, drove in to rain and down the rain has settled down to a mist. It will take us two days of travel to get there but at least we are on our way!

Good morning!

Another week almost gone. I won't see much of home today between my route and trip this afternoon, taking girls V-Ball to Chanute which is about 45 minutes from here. They are usually a good group.

Not much else going on. We've started another project, I know that's hard to believe. LOL! I'm having hubby make a window seat in the living room. The room is long and kind of narrow so the furniture placement, no matter what, is always more at one end than the other, so instead of having a bare end at the big window it will be utilized, of course there will be pictures. The hardest part is going to be finding a cushion. From what I can find out they have to be made and I'm not a sewer so I'll see. I'm sure I'll find something.

Y'all have a tremendous Thursday!

I got to my knitting group this morning the first time in a month and now it will be another month. Thatís ok as vacation is a priority. Did get some packing started and now it is starting to rain. But it really doesnít take that long to throw in the clothes and food. I will have tomorrow afternoon and Friday morning before we leave to finish.

Judy will be good to see you again. Mike too. Doesnít matter that you donít have an RV your welcome to come.

WG I love that you are going through things slowly and weeding out as you go. Its amazing how much stuff we accumulate and donít use. I think you are doing the right thing about showing the house. It isn't sold until you have the signed papers and money. I want to come to your house for Halloween it sounds like a fun place to be.

Sharon I believe now that you and Norm are better you need and want to play with the sparkers and leave the neighbors alone for a bit. LOL

Weez glad you are listening to your heart and obeying. I donít envy your and your counting duties. Donít think about it until you have too.

Hi Seesters. Just got back from showing the house again. The "buyers" haven't finished negotiating with us so I'm still showing the place as I don't want to lose any potential sales. Most of these later ones have not been as serious as these kids are.

Had to stop and get some foam sealant. I have hornets living in the crack behind the steps from the garage. I've not used the door much lately but it is a necessary entrance to the house. The kids tried spraying it and weren't impressed. Now it is time to seal the opening and keep them inside or outside. It will be nasty for a while as hornets don't displace well but we'll survive.

My Halloween order of blood and worms arrived. It will be fun this year. Last year was so overwhelming I want to make some fun memories. I also have some magic potion for the older kids (we are talking 5 to 9 years old)

Judy, it is interesting how we feel about RV vs non RV people. I'm glad you are going. It is so much fun when this group gets together. I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as you have enjoyed your other encounters. I know you and PJ have gotten together several times.

SS, thanks for the definition. It is interesting how things that are so familiar to us individually are foreign if we aren't in the same place.

Safe travels tomorrow for those leaving then. Safe travels later in the week for those who are leaving then.

I'm going to clean some things and get my house together a little more.

Have a great day all.

I'm back...very quickly. The ladies have left and we had a wonderful time and plan to get together again. I have learned to English paper piece!! emoticon

Sharon, you are right. It is Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults for the Catholic Church. Some times I think I would benefit from it!! Ours doesn't start until the end of September so just might do that!!

Now, got to clean up and get ready to head out to Columbus for Brooke's volleyball game.

Many years ago, when I was seriously dating a Catholic, I considered joining the church. At that time the classes were called RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) to join the Catholic Church. Is that what you mean, Weezie?

Good morning from work. A quick check in as it is raining, I have a nagging headache and don't want to work. Imagine that! LOL

SS, the rain is here as well. Now to see if the 'severe' weather follows they've been predicting.

I started RCIA class last night. I am finding it most interesting and think it is going to be a good thing for me in many ways. Long story but something has pulled me back into this direction so I'm listening and obeying.

Work is work and should continue to be more interesting as time goes by. I'm dreading count day since our new system doesn't seem to be 'fully' functional. I can't think about it, not yet. ACK!!!

Okay, just wanted to let you all know I'm alive and well and think of you often.

Enjoy your day!

Good Morning!
Well the rain has arrived so I'm glad we got most of our stuff in the MH. More severe weather is supposed to move in later today. I just want it to move through so all of us traveling to Branson will not have to deal with it.

WG - We can't leave our MH by our house permanently but we are allowed to bring it to the house to load and unload. We actually back it up between our house and our neighbors (with their permission) which makes it so much easier. You are also right that we haven't traveled much this summer. We only have been out once in the MH. Part of the reason was Norm recovering from his surgery and all the tests revolving around the nodules in his lungs. And I certainly didn't feel well either but the main reason is we were having so much fun with our new friends in our neighborhood we didn't feel the need to travel.

This is a fly by as I'm getting ready for the ladies to come for the sit 'n sew. I have everything pretty much ready to go but need to run out for a few things.

Felt sorry for Brooke last night. In the first game of her volleyball "set". She didn't play well at all and the coach put her on the bench for the 2nd game and they lost both of them. She was very upset. I think one of her team mates said something to her but she didn't tell me. My heart just aches for her. Hope she has a good game tonight.

See y'all later.

Good afternoon Seesters. Had a fun boy day with the Gunslinger, Fabio and Enterprise. Fabio is still napping but the others have gone home for the day. It is rainy which isn't a surprise with all the water south of here.

Judy, I'm glad you are back. What a miserable trip. Hope it paid very well. It is fun that you can be with the others in Branson. That sounds like great fun.

PJ, sounds like you will be very ready. It is good that you are getting plans in place for your Dad's meds and care while you are gone. It has to be hard leaving him.

SS, hope the MH is ready. I know you hate having it so far away but it is nice to have it available when you want to make a run. You haven't gone nearly as many places as you went last summer, have you? Of course, you did have that little health problem. How is that going?

Tammy, hope your bloodwork turns out good. And breakfast was fun. Good news for DH and DB. It sounds like he will be doing well then and with home health he should be able to be independent for a while.

LG, so glad you love sports. It would be very boring if you didn't. Your grands are wonderful and active. I'm sure this love for activity and sports will carry them into their adulthood. How lucky for you that you can split up and take care of all games at the same time.

I've got to check on Fabio again and then it will be some cleaning so I can be more settled. Getting things put away slowly. It is amazing how many things I "no longer have room" for. I'm feeling better about putting away slowly as I don't need much all the time and have a number of things I don't use often at all. Now to decide if the few times I use them is worth keeping them.

Making a few meals ahead today to have later in the week. DH is installing 2 new trailer roof vent covers and doing some roof caulking.

I also empty a tote in the trailer and put those things in the new chest so a little rearranging going on. Hopefully later today Frank will move the trailer to the house so I can actually do some packing.

Judy we will be at the Treasure Lake Resort most of us are arriving on Saturday and departure varies but most are leaving the 20. How far is Branson from you? Hope to see you too.

LG I have a couple of names and will get with them after this trip. Plan is to have someone start doing dads meds the first of December and continue until we come back in the spring. I want them to do them at least once before we leave and of course dad and I will meet them and they will come and assess his condition etc first also. Those games are really keeping you busy. How long does the season last for volleyball and soccer.

Tammy glad to hear all that good news. Enjoy your breakfast.

Sharon we are hoping Texas gets some of that rain as the lakes we go to are very low. Those fish need more water. LOL

Great thanks! That's in Branson correct?

I did nothing in Iowa when I wasn't working. I didn't have a whole lot of time and by the time I got done with driving I really didn't want to drive any where else. Pretty boring trip.

Morning!
One more decent day before the storms move in. Our plan is to finish packing today!

Tammy - good new on both your DB being able to go home and DH being clot free. That should help some of the stress you've been dealing with, hopefully! Enjoy your breakfast out. That is Norm's favorite meal to eat out.

LG - I think it's great how you attend the GK's games! We went to a few of ours but not as faithful as you. It sounds like they are fun games to watch, especially with the scores so close.

SEK - it would be great if you could stop in this weekend. We'll be at Treasure Lake RV Resort but where in the park we don't know yet.

WG - yes, the flooding in AZ was really bad. We called our friends to make sure they were OK. One said their back yard was completely flooded. The worst flooding in Mesa was only about 3 miles from where we stay on I-60 & Stapley. They closed the highway right down which is perhaps a first. They got about 5 1/2 inches of rain which is about half of their annual amount.

Hello, Seesters!


Blood work this morning - fasting - and then DH and I will enjoy breakfast out. It will be a nice change. My doctor's appointment is on Thursday; I like having the blood work results when I go for the visit with my PCP.


WG, perhaps one day you will come close to my little part of the planet...


Yes, right now the plan is for DB to go to his home. No news on that front from yesterday, but at least there was no bad news.


DH had his CT scan yesterday, and no clots.

Morning, everyone.....

I agree with WG...it is fun to read about your comings and goings as my grandmother would say! And I think your "get together" in Branson will be tons of fun for all of you. I know both PJ and Sharon and they are lots of fun to be with!! We have never been there either so maybe one of these days we'll just take off.

I am looking forward to the paper piecing. I'm only doing a small project to begin with. It will be like my hand embroidery....can just pick it up when ever.

PJ, glad that you have your dad's med taken care of. Did you ever find some one to do them while you are in Texas? Sounds to me like you are ready to head out. I wish you'd send us some of the hot weather. It has been very cool here lately and I'm really not liking it at all. Did you google the paper piecing?

Weezie2, yard work never ends!

Brooke had a volleyball game last night against another middle school there in Columbus. This team hasn't been beaten. Brooke's team beat them in the first game! Second game they got beat. Third game was so close....15-14! Brooke's team played so well. She has really improved her serving too. Both Brooke and Carmen play tonight. So again we'll be at the games. Tomorrow night they play and Thursday night. emoticon Then on Saturday....Luke plays soccer and both girls have volleyball tourneys!! Since they play at pretty much the same times, we'll all be going in different directions. Brooke's tourney is at another school. Carmen's is at her school. Should be interesting!!

Now I've got to run...have a nail appointment at 9:30!!

Hope everyone had a great evening.

I don't have much time but did want to stop by.

PJ let me know where you all are so we can come by this weekend.

I took Freshman football to their game last night and when I started the bus to come home the wipers came on and would not go off. It was so much fun driving with smeared bugs on the windshield. I kept turning on the washer to keep the squeaking down and that just smeared them more. It was such a fun trip!

Got to run y'all have a terrific Tuesday!

Good evening everyone. It is so fun to hear of your lives. Everyone is doing something different yet we find such commonality as well.

I'm excited to hear of your rendezvous in Branson. It sounds like such fun for everyone. I'm looking forward to reports and pictures. One day I might make it there. My father's people come from that part of the world. Some live there still but it has been so long since anyone was there I'm not sure who would be there to contact. But I enjoy the genealogy and connection.

LG, I'm sure paper piecing is fun but I'm sure I don't love it enough to spend years piecing a king size quilt. I'm not patient enough. That's a lot of eating out. Sometimes are like that.

Judy, you have taught by speech and example the work ethic. Your son has learned well from you. I'm sure he is desired as he works hard and can get things done. He can set limits when he is ready to take a little break. Sounds like you need to quit helping out so much.

SS, hope the MH got loaded. It is interesting trying to get out between storms. But if it storming all day, does it really matter all that much? Did you read about the flooding in AZ?

PJ, sorry the cobbler didn't turn out as good as you had hoped. New needles are always wonderful. Hope the roof got sealed well today. Sounds like you have everything ready as well.

You all will have such fun.

I'm off to feed the dog and go to bed. 'Nite all.

Got dadís meds lined up for the time we will be gone and did a few more errands. Even found a bargain swimsuit ($90 one for $12.99 at JC Penneys) since the new one I had in my dresser was too small and I had never worn it either. The piles are getting higher in the house of things to take as soon as we can load them up. Iím getting more excited each day and canít wait to meet up with old and new spark friends.

Picked up some new knitting needles (like my quilter friends canít have enough knitting items) but I did not buy any yarn. Will take one project with me on the trip just in case I want and have time to knit. Now which project to take. Hmmmm

TB my eyes get that way after knitting for hours especially if I am using small needles and concentrating on a new pattern.

WG we didnít like the cobbler. If I try it again I will just use regular corn bread batter and pour on top. The tomatoes were cut in half with sliced onions and some garlic, salt and pepper and topped with the corn bread stuff and baked. The topping was just way to dry.

Judy what did you do in Ames when you werenít working? Sounds like Joshua is working hard and that they like what he is doing.. Yep he is in the working world now love/hate but the $$$ is always nice. Is he saving some I hope and does he have anything special he wants to buy himself too.

Sharon Frank wants to get the roof of the trailer treated today then we will move it to the house and start packing. Our weather is hot and humid today and rain to move in tomorrow and Wednesday.

LG this paper piecing sounds intriguing. I am going to have to google and see what it is?

Weez2 sounds like it is easy to entertain the Grand daughter and your mom. LOL




I go by the name of PJ and live north of KC, MO. Winter in East Texas.

Onward and Downward

Its always too soon to quit.

It may take me longer to get to my goal than my original plan but I will get there.

It's going to be a beautiful day to get some yard work done. After an hour or 2 outside I'll be ready to get more sewing done before I watch Kami this afternoon. I'm hoping she'll want to see her Great G'ma. She knows how to brighten mom's day. I'll bring another shopping bag and let the 2 of them fill it with pinecones and acorns. They get so silly when they do that.

Have a great Monday!

Good morning.....

I'm on the run here this morning. I've got to get the house cleaned. On Wednesday, I'm having a couple of ladies here and one of them is going to teach myself and the other lady how to do English paper piecing. Very old technique and I'm so looking forward to it. The lady who is teaching went to one of the quilt retreats with me and that is all she did. Didn't even take a sewing machine with her! She is making a King size quilt using this technique.

TB, watch those eyes!! Even though you are younger than me, it can still cause problems down the road.

Judy, one thing that it shows is the fact that Joshua has been raised right! He knows responsibility and he proves it!!

SS, Thomas doesn't talk about his time in Viet Nam very often. It's strange.....the gal who does my nails is Vietnamese and I told her that my husband had been there. She told me to thank him for her and she had tears in her eyes. She told me that her father nearly died in a POW camp in the North. Very sad.

WG, I've had the same thing with our grand kids and I've put a stop to it!! Our back storm door doesn't shut tight (long boring story). So I have to "lock" it when they go out.

PJ, yes, inquiring minds want to know!!!

We have a volleyball game tonight so I'm being very careful with my food choices today because we have to eat out again tonight. emoticon

Well, dryer just turned off so need to get the church laundry out!!

Good Morning!

We have a break in weather today, it is actually nice! So we decided to bring the MH up and get it packed as we have more storms moving in. We'll keep our eye on the weather and time our departure around the storms. Hopefully, Branson will have nice weather the week we are there.

SEK- so glad Joshua is doing well at his job. He definitely is proving to be reliable or they wouldn't be calling him for the extra hours.

WG - I don't understand why but kids just seem to naturally run in and out. We often had to put our foot down and say that's it with our GK's as well. Now that they are in their teens, they seldom go out at all.

TB - I hope your deadline isn't taking the fun out of your quilting! I'm glad you stopped when your eyes got tired.

PJ - you got us all wondering about the cherry tomato cobbler! Be sure and let us know how it is.

LG - yes, Norm served during the Vietnam years and understands the lack of appreciation shown at that time. I guess that's why he has so much pride in being a Vet in his later years. He just bought a new flag yesterday that basically says if you enjoy your freedom, thank a vet. I'm glad to hear you are enjoying your new priest. As far as the church being cold, so many public places with A/C keep the temp too low (like a movie and some restaurants) It would be fine if you were up moving around but when you're just sitting, the cold settles on your shoulders!

Morning! I'm back and I guess ready to get back to the old routine.

I don't mind going and helping but I won't go back to where I was. That place is a horrible mess and short of completely cleaning house office wise I don't know if there is anyway to get it back on track. A couple of times they mentioned they were going to send me out to recruit. Finally I replied with I'm here to cover routes because you don't have drivers, I don't work for the Armed Forces Recruiting Office or Durham Recruiting Office. They said well we pay you for eight hours you should work eight hours. I reminded them that if they had me come in at 6 Am. by 2:30 Pm when I needed to drive a route I would be into overtime. Silly me I thought they would back off, no they just said it would be approved. Now if it is necessary to work overtime I'm all for it but it was not necessary because they had "stand by" people just waiting for hours. Then I had to ask myself why am I here? It was just crazy. So needless to say I had a very unusual week last week.

Glad to see most everyone has been busy, well, and having fun.

TB good luck in the show. I know you will have outstanding entries.

PJ cherry tomato cobbler?

Joshua is working more hours, he is even being called in when people don't show up. They are calling him before they call people that have been there longer. Our instructions on what an employee should do to make a good impression must be paying off. Glad he was listening. He is having a love hate relationship with the job but don't we all?!

I better go it'll be time to go to work soon.

Y'all have a magnificent Monday!

Good evening. I'm off to bed in a few but the kids just went home so I've got a minute to unwind. It was a mad house tonight. The little ones went in and out of the house leaving the back door open. They tend to get worse as the flies get worse but I finally insisted they all stay outside. It was unnecessary to be indoors when there were no adults there. They were fine with that.

TB, glad you didn't sew until your eyes crossed. My hands would cramp and become crippled with that much sewing. I found when I pushed too long, my hands wouldn't be able to hold a needle or whatever for days. Take it easy.

SS, I love that people are respecting servicemen these days. It was sad in the days of Vietnam that the men suffered so much and received no support at all. I talk to veterans today and they still don't talk about the war to anyone. One friend calls one of his comrades in arms from time to time and they "chat." He says they don't always talk about the war but they understand why they need to talk.

I'm sure your grandson will learn a lot from his discipline in the military. Hopefully it will help him this year in school.

PJ, cherry tomato cobbler? I'll have to look that one up. How did it turn out?

LG, I'm so glad you are liking your new priest. It has taken a while to fall in love with him. What will happen in the winter? Will he continue to freeze you out? I wear a heavy sweater to church most of the winter and usually wear a light one in the summer.

Tammy, I'm glad your brother is doing better every day. I'm sure you have a lot of support at home as well. In a week or so they will be talking about discharge and planning. Is he planning to live at his home?

Off to bed. Have a great day tomorrow all.

I've done all I can do on my quilts, for today. My eyes are starting to go blurry and when that happens it's time to stop.

One time I kept on pushing and ended up with such a bad case of eye strain that I thought I had had a stroke. I (literally) couldn't focus for 3 days. Lesson learned! Once everything had checked out okay my doc thought it was funny. His comment was something like "Let me guess - you've been staring at a quilt non-stop for several days straight, right? My wife does exactly the same thing and then wonders why her vision goes blurry."

There is no privacy when you live in a small town. emoticon

With only 13 days left until I have to submit my entries to the show, both king sized quilts need to be bound and labelled. Well, the labelling can wait - the binding cannot. So the clock continues to tick.

emoticon to everyone.

WG I would be concerned about your neighbor raising the ground level on his side causing flooding in your yard or basement. Where I live you need permits for fences and they inspect them before and after. There are strict guidelines that need to be followed. It wouldn't hurt to check it out.

I always try to thank our servicemen too. Frank had served in Vietnam and LG you're right. It took a long time for him to talk to me about his experience. I found out more listening to him talking with my brother in laws who also served.

We have another craft fair this weekend so my sewing machine is calling me.

Have a great Sunday!

Finished baking some cookies for the freezer. Will be trying a new recipe Cherry Tomato Cobbler with the tomatoes I just picked and have the front yard to mow and probably one more time later in the week before leaving on vacation.

DH replaced his mothers back door yesterday and I mowed part of her yard instead of just watching DH work.

Tammy sounds like DB is progressing that is wonderful news to hear.

Sharon so glad GS made it home I bet he does look different and more handsome. And I can tell you are a proud grandma.

WG hoping you can get the fence issue resolved to your satisfaction .

LG busy as usual with all the grands a ball games I remember days like that when the boys were little busy but fun

Hi!

Well, I didn't make it here yesterday and we were busy from 7 a.m. until after 6 p.m. last night. I was beat and after a stint on the couch went to bed!

We volunteered at the church 5k and then headed to Luke's soccer game. It started to rain just as the game was over. Went back to Jason's house and then headed to Sam's Club. Got home and then went to Mass. I'm really liking this priest. He is so funny. Only problem and I've told him....he keeps that church at about 68 degrees and it is freezing in there. It's hard to find one woman without a sweater or jacket on!! I told him that his sermons were good and didn't need to freeze us to keep us awake!! LOL!!

Today, we aren't doing much and I'm glad. Need a down day. Trying to get all my laundry done.

SS, glad that your DGS made it home with no problems. I try to tell the servicemen and women that I meet Thanks! It's important. I'm sure that he appreciates them too! When Thomas came back from Viet Nam no one said one word. In fact, he didn't tell people as they didn't like it. I feel for those vets as they weren't appreciated at all. Glad that you enjoyed your time with friends.

WG, hope that you can get others to oppose the fence. That is ridiculous! I'm sure that you can find out how high the fence is allowed to be.

Tammy, glad that DB is doing better. I remember mom also had one of those belts for a while and she took it off!!! Too funny!

PJ, Tammy, & Sharon, enjoy your RV get together! I'm sure that you'll have a great time. Any time you get together with SP friends it is going to be a good time!!

Good Morning!

Yesterday was another fun and busy day. We were off to the airport to join the group to welcome home our GS. When he was walking down the concourse and spotted his group, he broke out in a run straight to his mother's arms. It was so touching! Then he personally hugged and greeted everyone that came out. He said before they landed, the entire plane clapped for him and walking through the airport, he was amazed how many strangers stopped him to shake his hand and thank him for his service. It meant so much to him and he hasn't even been to active duty. Can you imagine how good it must feel to those that have been to war zones. It makes me want to say thank you to every serviceman. (or woman)

Then we went to Flags Unlimited. Norm had a specific flag he wanted to fly this coming winter while living in our MH. They had it! So he was happy.

After that we went over to some friends house for the evening. They also go to AZ every winter but they have a home in Sunrise so they are about an hour from us. That's OK as we still get together during the winter a couple times.

So Bailey was pretty happy to see us when we got home. Norm stayed up and watched TV for awhile before he went to bed but I crashed right away!

Tammy - you would love to meet with us when we go to Shipshewana as it's in the middle of Amish country and we get to see lots of Amish farms, buggies and eat at restaurants with Amish food. It sounds like DB is doing a little better. Norm hated wearing the gait belt but they told him it was a law for so many hours after you can be mobile. What he hated was he couldn't even go to the restroom without them coming and reminding him to ring for them. I think he could relate to what your DB is feeling. We will leave MI on Thursday and arrive in Branson on Saturday. I'm also looking forward to finally meeting you!

WG - My GS has definitely changed! He's lost about 35 lbs so that makes him look taller. He always was a good looking boy in my eyes but he came back even more handsome! Our weather was perfect yesterday for his landing. I'm glad his flight the night before was canceled as it was really storming all evening. It will be interesting to see what develops with the new commune and their fences. I suppose they are trying to work around ordinances that allow only 6 ft fences. Keep us informed.

Hi, Seesters!


WG, yes, our drive to visit DB was a fun one, through a bit of a small Amish community. We were behind 2?3? buggies at different points of our drive. I enjoy seeing their farms, etc.


DB is walking with a walker, but I noted yesterday that the gait belt is still being used. He has an alarm that he is supposed to push when he gets up, but he forgets when he awakes and needs to go to the restroom. I would probably forget it as well. DB knew DH when he went into the room ahead of me, and that was good. The charge nurse shared some things with me - I did have a question list from DD, who is a charge nurse at a facility in our area - and told me to never hesitate to call. I will likely know more about Medicare/Medicaid in the coming week.


DH and I will be going to Branson on Thursday for our Spark Rally with members of our RV Enthusiasts team. It will be good to be away and it will be good to meet Sparkfriends in person. I will drive back to work - I am part time - and have been trying to have things done ahead for those days.


Have a good day!

Good evening Seesters. I've been busy today but wanted to check in.

Tammy, hope your day was a good one. I expect your brother to do well in the rehab as he will receive intensive therapy from people who specialize in this type of care. Sounds like you had fun traveling to visit.

SS, hope your DGS got home safely. I was watching the news and the weather seemed to be quite awful. It is funny how different people look when they are done with basic. It is as though they got bigger, more solid, stronger. It isn't a bad thing so hopefully he will do well. When does school start for him?

Got my lawn mowed and groceries inside. I've got dinner for tomorrow. I was thirsty and probably hungry so I bought dumb things. I do have lots of veggies and fruits so I'll survive.

The people building a new house/compound (father and 2 sons building 3 homes together) tore down the trees bordering the place that used to be a field. The guy came by last week and told me the fence would be 6 feet but admitted today that it would be 6 feet from his side and he has raised the ground level 2-4 feet. I suppose they don't want to have to see the neighbors. I told him it wasn't right but he told me the drainage problems were more important than a silly fence. I don't think so. His father raised his ground 4 feet so neighbors who are 3 houses down from mine will have a 10 foot fence in their back yard. We don't have big yards.

Don't know that I'll have much voice but 10 families might. It is just dumb to raise the land so much unless you want to shut out the neighbors who are lower classed than they see themselves as being.

Spent some time with DGS who had a religious milestone today. The Dragon was so cute in his suit. He is a cute boy. It was nice to see DIL's family. They are good people.

Have a great day all. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Good Morning!

We are going to try again today! Our GS, Pvt Hayden Schmidt was supposed to fly in from Atlanta last night at 11:35. However, his flight was canceled due to all the severe weather in our area. We really had bad T-storms so for his safety it was probably best. Although he is tired from 12 hrs in the Atlanta airport. Now he must spend another 12 hours and try to sleep in an airport chair! He has been rescheduled and is due to land this afternoon. The weather has cleared up and he should be OK. We'll be there along with several others to welcome him home!

PJ - it's so nice that your DH takes good care of his mother. I am sure she appreciates all the little things like installing the new back door.

Tammy - I'm hoping you get some of the rain we've been having. I'll glady send our share to you as I'm mighty tired of it.

WG - your kids must appreciate all the babysitting you do with the grandkids. We used to have our DD's kids all the time after her divorce but since she's remarried and they have grown up, it's very different. As for the dog, we certainly aren't as attached as DS & DIL but we do have more feelings than for their other dog. My son broke down to tears when he was telling us and I think our hearts are breaking more for what they are dealing with. This dog is my DIL's love and she is taking it the hardest. The next couple of weeks will be so difficult knowing she is dying and not being able to help. We do not get our meds in the mail but we get them from KMart. We have a KMart right by our resort in AZ and they just transfer our prescriptions. It works well for us.
