Hi!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO far behind with all you wonderful Spark friends! We were gone all day Saturday to Detroit to attend Autorama at Cobo Hall. Sunday, church....then Gary and family came down and we tore up the kitchen, entry, laundry room and dining area floors........so the floor man can come and put down new flooring. Guess it will take up to two weeks to get delivery.......hope it's sooner!

Today, Dick's rehab ..... then two doctor appointments for me.....then lunch with a 1/2 off coupon....then just getting home. Will go back now and try and catch up with posts. Still very cold and breezy but lots of sunshine.....and the ice on the trees, etc. has finally melted or blown off.

More eventually..........helping at church getting ready for indoor garage sale....And also tomorrow is Hospice Shop volunteering day....plus I have to go for a test back to Kalamazoo in the morning.

Think I need to get a job.....then I probably wouldn't be so "occupied".....

as ever, mary

Be Yourself.........everyone else is taken.

Live in SW Michigan near Kalamazoo. LiveinSWMichigannearKalamazoo Smile....youweredesignedto!

This dumb Norwegian Blond, is knocking on her wooden head as she says--I think the snow is going away.Yeah! Yeah!
I have an appointment with the cardio Doc on the 14th--only problem is, I haven't got out to see the vampires yet ,and the blood work takes 2 week to get back. Guess I'll move the appointment. It might take another day or two before it will be easy to get me out in the wheelchair.
I lost my dad when I was 9, and was raised by my mom alone, but there were only the 2 kids. I can't imanagine11. I acted out so badly, that maybe I equaled 10. When my brother and I look back, we don't know how she ever managed.

Forward, Slow but sure. Like the turtle, Never to look back.

ANN, AFTER TE MINISTER HAD VISITED MY MUM TURNED ROUND TO ME ABD SAID THAT WE WOULD HAVE TO REALLY BE ON THE BALL TO KEEP THE HOUSE CLEAN NOW AS YOU ENVER KNOW WHO AND WHEN ANYONE WILL DROP BY. UNFORTUNATELY, TDAY, I HAD BEEN AT THE SCHOOL AND THEN JUST GOT HOME TO DO LUCH SO HADN'T A CHANCE TO EVEN START THE HOUSEWORK, ALTHOUGH MUM DID DO SOME DUSTING WHILST WE WERE OUT. IT IS JUST SO EMBARRASING THOUGH. GOOD JOB HE DIDN'T GO THROUGH TOT HE KITCHEN AS LUCH WAS ONLY JUST READY SO YOU CAN IMAGINE THE PILER OF POTS AND PANS ETC. I N THE SINK RADY FOR WASHING.

MONICA, THERE ARE TRIGGERS YOU CAN LEARN BUT YOU WOULD NEED TO PUT THEM ION PLACE YOURSELF. FOR THINGS LIKE FOOD AND DRINK YOU CAN LEARN DIFFERENT NAMES, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU COULD SAY IT IS TIME FOR AN APPETIZER, MEANING TIME FOR AN APPLE. I PROBABLY HAVEN'T GOT THIS ENTIRELY TIGHT BUT THERE IS SUCH A THING AS WORD ASSOCIATION AND ALSO THE USE OF NMENONICS. YOU COULD MAKE IT A POINT THAT ON YOUR BREAKS YOU WILL HAVE ONE GLASS OF WATER AND EVEN TWO AT LUNCH. THINGS LIKE THIS.

TAMMY, THE JOYS OF ANIMALS AND WET WEATHER. I KNOW IT SO WELL, UNFORTUNATELY. WHY DOES IT ALWAYS RAIN WHEN YOU HAVE JUST CLEANED UP? NEVER HAVE FIGURESD THAT ONE OUT BUT MYRPHY'S LAW SEEMS TO COME INTO PLAY EVERY TIME. HAVE A RELAXING EVENING JUST THE TWO OF YOU.

CAROL, YOU SNUCK IN JUST AS I WAS POSTING LOL. IT WAS JUST A THOUGHT ABOUT YOUR HUBBY. MILITARY MEN HAVE A KNACK OF BEING ABLE TO DOZR OFF AND TEN CARRY ON WITH THINGS. IT SOUNDS LIKE HE HAD SO MUCH FUN WITH THE KIDS BUT I'LL BET YOU WEREN'T TOO HAPPY WITH THE PILE OF LAUNDRY AFTERWARDS, LOL. STILL, SOME OF US NEVER GROW UP, LOL. ME INCLUDED! AH, THE SCOUT TROOP WEKENDS. I REMEMBER THEM WELL AS I ONCE WAS A SCOUT LEADER FRO MY SINS. ACTUALLY IT WAS FUN AND THE BOYS ENJOYED THEMSELVES AWAY FROM MUM AND DAD AS TEY COULD GET AWAY WITH A LOT MORE. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR FAMILY HAS A FULL AND ACTIVE LIFE AND THAT IS REALLY GREAT.

THAT IS ME FOR TONIGHT. I DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING PLANNED TOMORROW AND HOPEFULLY WILL NOT GET ANY SURPRISES SO I WILL BE ABLE TO CHAT A LITTLE MORE WHICH WILL BE NICE.

FOR NOW THOUGH I AM HAVING A READING EARLY NIGHT SO THAT I CAN FINISH THE CURRENT BOOK. I AM READING N IS FOR NOOSE BY SUE GRAFTON FROM HER ALPHABET SERIES. EASY READING AND THEREFORE RELAXING.

GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS DEAR FRIENDS AND I WILL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

Good Afternoon everyone. We have sunshine. Every now and then I can hear the snow falling off the roof. My oldest daughter stopped over this morning to pick up her Pug. We dog sat her while the family went to Wisconsin Dells with my grandson’s boy scout troop and then Julie had a knitting seminar she wanted to go to in Madison. Fortunately it wasn’t near the Capitol where they are protesting so traffic was too bad to get around.
Let’s see if I can get caught up with everyone.

Tammy, the kitchen just doesn’t seem to stay clean does it? There is always someone getting something to eat or drink. We had home made pizza for lunch so it will be a salad for dinner tonight. You are doing so amazing with your workouts.

Lynn, I use to do craft shows in the fall. The biggest one was Octorfest which drew thousands of people. They changed their set up and it was just too difficult to haul every thing there. I use to be able to park right next to our display tables as I had a handicap parking sticker but they now have the displays on the street. It use to be on a college campus.
Sherry, Hope you are feeling better. The flu can take so much out of a person.

Monika. A friend of mine gave me a very smooth stone and told me to rub it whenever I felt worried or upset. She called it a worry stone.

Ann, I can attest to ministers being just like everyone else. When my mom died us kids were put in foster homes and my foster father was a minister. They went through a lot with me what with my surgeries and feeling lost without my family. But I do remember the clean your plate because children are starving in China sentiment. Of course coming from a family of 11 there weren’t many left overs either. Now in hindsight I realize how hard it must have been for my mom to raise all of us by herself. I have a lot of respect for her.

Mac, hubby had loads of fun in the snow with grandkids. They were all over the yard. He has piles of stone and black dirt out back and of course they had to climb them and slide down. We have some sleds but they are in old chicken coop with snow blocking the doors. 3 year old Alyssa came in and said she had Rocks in her boots. Yes hubby was in the Navy on a submarine.Hopeyour legs are better today. I’m glad you were able to go see your grandsons little play. They are always so happy to see their grandparents at these functions.

Elizabeth, sorry to hear about all the turmoil in your family. I’m glad Spark is here for you. It’s funny I joined Spark to lose weight not knowing I’d find so many friends while doing it.

Teresa, we too have to watch out for deer around here. The other night 10 of them crossed the road near here. I love your crosses. Do you sell them at craft shows?

Cynthia, i tell my kids that with all my replacements I’m a bionic grandma. We live in a rural area and it’s 30 minutes to our Y where I use to do senior water works. I loved it but my unstable walking prevents me from going by myself and I use the wheelchair that’s too heavy for me to lift out. I do have one neighbor that goes but she likes to go herself in case she has errands to do or friends to meet. Hope your computer is no longer giving you problems.
Wow, didn’t realize I could be so chatty. Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day.
Carol




If there's a will, there's a way and I'll find that way.


LIFE IS TOUGH, BUT I'M TOUGHER

I have been relaxing a bit today.
Swept the kitchen floor....againnnnnnnnnnn emoticon
finally got to my living room carpet....ohhhhhhh LoRD, what a mess, dang dog's muddy paws. I pulled out all the furniture and really vacuumed it.
Last night after dark, we went out and clipped the chickens wings, they were jumping our fence and a stray dog was after a couple of them yesterday.
What a muddy mess my backyard was last night, then it began to rain around 11:30pm and rained all night....MORE MUD, for my dogs to track in the house.....UUUGGGGG emoticon Yes, Murphy's Law is always poking it's nose around here, I clean, it rains or the wind blows the leaves in my front door....
Anyway, I'll get my biking in this afternoon and will relax tonight, my mom came over to let me know they wouldn't be home for dinner, so it'll be just D and I. I may order dinner, not sure yet. I ordered dinner; I ordered D a pizza, he likes the bacon,ranch chicken pizza from Pizza Joes, I got their anti-pasta salad for myself
. Hugs and Bright Blessings Tammy emoticon

Are there tricks on how to remember things better? I am still doing good with the food and big time slipping on the water and vitimans. I have recieved an 82 on the french test, so it looks like my french and computer test grade are the same when it comes to the first test. I will see my math professor tomorrow.

A story --The new ministers visit--When young, and moving around all the time---We had a card party one night, and it ran very late. I didn't clean up, and the next morning a knock knock on the door--We had attended a new church only once, and the minister made a meet and greet call. I was in my robe, hungover, the kitchen was a mess, booze bottles, chips and dip, all over the place. I thought about lying to him ,and telling him I was sick, but I was taught not to tell lies, let alone to a minister. What was I to do? I invited him in, told him we had a wild party last night, and what did he say " do you have any coffee, I could sure use a cup, and I think you could too. I found out that men of God ,are human also.

Forward, Slow but sure. Like the turtle, Never to look back.

ANYHOW, HAVE READ ALL THE POSTS AND WE MUST AVE BEEN POSTING AT THE SAME TIME TODAY ANN. THERE IS NO WAY I CAN ANSWER THEM ALL NOW AS IT IS SO LATER HERE AND THERE ARE SO MANY SO APOLOGIES BUT I WILL JUST JUMP IN HERE AND TRY AND CATCH UP THAT WAY. I WILL SAY CONGRATS TO CARRIE ON THE FITNESS MINUTES. SO MANY AND IN SUCH A QUICK TIME. EXCELLENT. ELIZABETH, I SAID A SPECIAL PRAYER FOR YOU TODAY AS YOUR WEEK HAS JUST EBEN HOTTENDOUS. WE ARE WITH YOU AND TOGETHER I HOPE WE CAN GET YOU THROUGH IT ALL.

TWO DAYS IN A ROW THAT HAVE BEEN JUST MANIC. I KNOW I LIKE TO KEEP BUSY BUT THERE IS A LIMIT, LOL. HOWEVER, THEY AHVE NOTH GONE QUICK, THAT'S FOR SURE. I ENDED UP HAVING SUPEPR AT 11PM LAST NIGHT, WHICH WAS THE FIRST CHANCE I HAD OF DOING SO. TEHRE WILL NOT BE A REPEAT OF THAT TONIGHT AS I HAVE AHD A LATE DINNER AND AM SO FULL THAT I WANT NOTHING ELSE TODAY.

THOSER FIRES ARE A BIT TOOCLOSE FOR COMFORT TO YOU. I DO HOPE THEY CAN BE BROUGHT UNDER CONTROL QUICKLY. WILD FIRES ARE SO FAST MOVING AND DO SO MUCH DAMAGE.

SHERRY, SO SORRY TO HEAR THAT FLU BUG HAS REALLY TOOK HOLD. HOPEFULLY YOUR DOCTOR CAN GIVE YOU SOMETHING THAT WILL HELP EASE THE SYMPTOMS. YOUU SURE DO NOT WANT TO LEAVE THE HOSUE IN THAT WEATHER OF YOURS. I KNOW IT IS DIFFICULT BUT TRY AND AT LEAST GET SOME SOUP INTO YOU. YOU NEED SOMETHING INSIDE YOUR STOMACH. BEST REGARDS TO YOUR SON AS WELL AS HE WILL BE EXHAUSTED BY THE TIME HE GETS THROUGH A WORKING DAY. OU CONCENTRATE ON LOOKING AFTER YOURSELF. OKAY, I KNOW YOU WANT OT DO THE CHANGEOVER, BUT I THINK YOU ARE SENSIBLE IN LEAVING THE REST UNTIL LATER.

ANN, I HAD NO CHOICE WITH THE MINISTER. I WAS SERVING LUNCH WHEN I HEARD A HALLO AS HE WALKED IN THE FRONT DOOR. AND YES, I AM FEELING GOOD TODAY. I WAS GLAD I WENT TO SEE MY GRANDSONS AND I WAS REALLY PLEASED TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK WITH TERESA. I AM ACTUALLY NOT TOO BAD TREMOR WISE EITHER, WHICH MAKES A NICE CHANGE. I ONLY HAD A BRIEF SPELL THIS MORNING AND ALTHOUGH TEH LEGS ARE STILL AL ITTLE WOBBLE THE REST IS NOT AFFECTING ME RIGHT NOW. GLAD YOUR WEATHER IS IMPROVING. I AHVE TO SAY THAT HERE, IF I DIDN'T KNOW BETTER, I WOULD SWEAR THAT SPRING IS HERE ALREADY AS IT HAS BEEN A BEAUTIFUL DAY. HOPEFULLY IT WILL KEEP GOING.

LYNN, GOOD LUCK WITH THE CRAFT STUFF HUNT. ALSO, I BET YOU WILL BE REALLY PLEASED WHEN THAT AQUARIUM PART GETS TO YOU. IT MUST BE DRIVING OYU BONKERS.

OK, THAT'S ME FOR NOW. WILL CHECK BACK LATER.

Hi Mac, I thought you we're missing, you sound very good today.Glad your feeling up to entertaining the minister, and talking to Teresa.
Lynn- congrats on breaking away from the clean plate club, that we all were raised with. I guess the children in China, or where ever, will just have to starve Mama said (Clean your plate ,the children in China are starving ,and you should feel lucky you have what you have). I went to a diet class, at the hospital ,and she said "a stomach is like a car gas tank-what happens when you over fill it? It runs just as good half full.) So be proud lady, you didn't fill the tank.
The weather is starting to warm ,and snow mother nature is loosing the battle--half rain, half snow, and the snow on the deck railing is slowly melting. If this keeps up, we will have the grass back by tomorrow.`
Teresa have you made a fire plan, just in case. My one big fear in life is fire, but I must admit, I'm also afraid of heights.

Elizabeth, you and yours are in my prayers.
Teresa, I saw pictures on the news of your fires. That is one thing I DON'T like about living in the woods. Hope your niece difficulties work themselves out. 2 men seem to be able to live together, but women have conflicts. my best friend tried to live with me--Poor kid, we finally made up again, When she moved away. You will be in prayers also.
No Mac yet?

Good afternoon folks.

What a day so far. i haven't even had a chance to catch up on last evening's posts yet.

I was woken up this morning at 7am by a little voice that said, 'Grandad, we have a show at my school today andit starts at 9.30!'. After getting over the intial shock; apparently my grandson's Mim was emant to phone us about it last Friday but, as always, shwe cannot eb bothered and shows little or no interest in what her kids are doing in school. So, I told hime that we had to arrange transport which is why we needed notice and that I doubted we would be able to go. However, I phoned Mary, who was at work by then and she said to just order a taxi. So Trish and I duly went and it was so good. One of my other grandson's is also in the same year as Paul and luckily he caught our eye. He duly passed on the message that we were there and a little face popped up above the parapet. The year were doing a Fair Trade show aout how fair trade helps people around the world. They had a novel way of doing it as well as to get the message across they did a mock ralent show based loosely on the X Factor with a video made by the kids of a parody on Family Fortunes. Afterwards, we met with the kids and the first thing that Paul did was to go to one of the stalls and out of his pocket money he bought me a recipe book to say thank you for coming. That really touched me. Mind you, he got it back along with my other grandson and a friend of Trish's daughter. It turned into an expensive morning but I don't mmind as the money was for school funds. We also had a presentation from one of the teachers on how they invoke discipline. Instead of being reactive and just punishing a person the school will actually get a person together with the victim or by himself ifnoone else is involved, and they will discuss what they did wrong, what rules were broken, and if encessary, how the victim felt with discussion between both parties. It is a different approach and yes, if someone ahs done something wrong there will be a punishment, but only after it ahs been talked about. I wish them luck as if this approach works it could teach the ids to be more responsible and think before they act and also to think of others as well.

That was the morning gone. When we got back i immediately started to prepare lunch. Mum was being a little argumentative so I suggested simehting which I knew she would fall for. So, having done that I was just serving it up when the Minister came round, so i had to put it in the oven to keep warm whilst he was here. We finally had luchat around 3.15. After lunch we did the diishes and had a bitof a rest and then i spent a smashing half hour on the phone with Teresa. It was fantastic to talk with her and the half hour went by too quickly.

Now my PC is on a go slow so I may have to reboot the router. After I have treid to sort out that problem I wil be back and will eventually eb able to catch up with everyone.

I hope you are all having a fantastic day. Will see you later.

the project we are working on is 3 wooden crosses that we will attach together to make 1 solid piece one cross will have wooden letters spelling out LOVE - 1 spelling out HOPE - the third spelling FAITH
You can see an example of the wooden cross I am speaking of on my pics - if I remember correctly the one on there has a tile Dove in the center of it !

No Sorry Lynn - more like the bob wire cross - three of those hooked together!

Good Monday Morning everyone,
It's supposed to be a little rainy today and I'm thinking of heading out to the Goodwill and searching for craft stuff. . .my neighbor makes lamps so I'm planning on asking if she wants to go with me.

Sherry. . . .Looks like you are sleeping in this morning. . .good going! I hope you kick that flu bug really fast!! Does your son cook? Maybe you can relax for a couple of days and have him cook for you. When my kids were teens there were some evenings that I didn't feel like cooking and would declare it "Make your own dinner night" and they would have to fend for themselves. My husband always made himself chili and rice, a dish I hate and will not make, and the kids usually did burritos or grilled cheese or ramen. Now days all three of the boys are quite good cooks. . .one is even working at a restaurant right now as the ceviche chef. . . it is a latin american fusion kind of place with 12 different elaborate ceviches.

Teresa. . .wildfire season already?? wow, we don't have to worry around here until july or so but then it extends into October. I hope you hit the craft room today. . .is the wall hanging fabric or some other medium?

Carrie. . .Congrats on crossing over 11k fitness minutes. . . way to go!!

Elizabeth. . .sounds like one heck of a week for you, I hope this one is much better!

Ann. . .good morning. . . sounds like you are still frozen in. Our cold has moved out and this week it will just be rainy, so later today I'm heading up top to remove the lights from my citrus. Or maybe I'll leave them up and just take out the extension cords. Mother Nature is so crazy this year!!

Mac. . .you're not up yet? did I miss a post or is your ISP giving you fits again.

MK. . .I hope you feel more cheerful today. . .you've lost over 50 lbs which is a great achievement!

The aquarium is super loud but Nick has a part coming this week that is supposed to fix it. I hope so, because I can't spend as long as I'd like on the computer with feeling stressed! I have some genealogy and ebay stuff I want to work on this week. Oh, yesterday we went out for lunch to a burger and fries place, and even though it was tasty, I left about a third of my food on the plate. . . I figured enough was enough. Usually I'm a member of the clean plate club so I'm proud of leaving the food, plus I only had a light dinner. So we went out, but my calorie count for the day was only 200 over what I aim for! Catch you later, Lynn

Good Morning Everyone

Sherry - Hope this finds you much improved this morning - for sure!

Elizabeth - So very Sorry to hear about your family members - Mercy what a week - Hope DH is doing Ok Take Care - Hugs

It is cooler here this morning but suppose to warm up and be windy again but not as bad as yesterday - had 60 mile hour winds!
We had 6 wild fires going in our region of Tx yesterday - 2 of them causing evacuations ! One evacuation was a hospital setting !
No personal injuries I am aware of though - 2-3 houses burnt to the ground in one area of the outbreak!
Not sure what is on the agenda for today right now ! Hopefully some part of the day will include working on some craft projects!
We are working on a triple cross wall hanging for a friend - it will say LOVE - HOPE - FAITH down each one of the crosses - 2 of the crosses will be horizontal to one another and the cross in the middle will be higher than the other two!
My DD BD is next month so we will be doing a tiled cross for her! Perfect timing for her new house as well LOL

My niece and I are at odds with one another - makes for an uncomfortable morning - I told her this morning we would have to agree to disagree and I meant exactly that! Now I am just trying to reign my thought processes back into place !
Probably isn't the best time to try to be posting - LOL!

I do hope each of you have a lovely day though - TTYL

It was nice to catch up with all of you on the dozens of updates since I last posted. It made me feel like I'm a part of the group - in the coffee clutch, so to speak - even though I don't drop in as often as I'd like.


This week took a very strange turn... Between DH's diagnosis of End Stage Renal Disease, and all the changes it's bringing to our lives, and the anniversary of Scott's death (which is finally over), we got two calls:

1. My 82-year-old MIL called: DH's stepsister, estranged from the family for years because of out-of-control alcoholism, was found dead in her apartment. DH's SF is 91, in shock and devastated; he cannot make the trip (flight needed), but his surviving son and daughter have left for the funeral.

2. Later that night, DH's aunt called from AZ to tell us that her brother (his uncle), who has been in very good health, was suddenly stricken with breathing problems and died before Lifeflight could get him to the hospital. She called DH so he could tell his Mom in person the next morning.

So early one morning, MIL & SFIL had his son on their doorstep with news of the death of his daughter, and then early the next morning, my DH was on their doorstep with news of the death of her brother... Of course, we are terribly worried about them both!

And then, in the middle of that, I'm "on my own" to handle my own grief - thank goodness for the support on Spark! - and the stress of making arrangements for DH's dialysis, et al. I am SO glad this week is over...
G'night ~ emoticon

I'm telling you it's going to be worth it."

congrats on the fitness minutes. How do you put down the dates and keep them on when the e-mails keep rolling. A computer nurd--I'm not. The era I'm from said we could't put a man on the moon. I remember the day we did. They say you can't teach old dogs new tricks but I want to keep learning, if I can.

Forward, Slow but sure. Like the turtle, Never to look back.

Nite Sherry--I'll pray that the ugly flu bug goes away during the night. You have work to do tomorrow, can't believe this month is over.
Well it has stopped snowing, for now, but it's getting windy here also. I think, I'm going to run the bull. Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest ,but we didn't go yesterday, It'was just to darn cold.
Sleep tight, my friend, and thank you again ,for all your hard work.
God Bless, Ann

MAC I have your number saved on my cell. I am defienently going to need more reminders with water again and at 4:30 I had my second cup. I am also not always awake enough to remember my vitimins. I am on 2 in the am and 1 at some other time during the day, but it should not be too close in time, but I have done that before. I wish I could keep that kind of stuff in my memory, but it is not happening for some reason.

I HAVEN'T BEEN AROUND TODAY BECAUSE, ALTHOUGH CONFINED PRETTY MUCH TO MY CHAIR, ITHAS BEEN QUITE A BUSY DAY IN OTHER WATS. I TOLD YOU AVBOUT CHATTING WITH CYNTHIS AND THEN TERESA. AFTER I HAD BEEN ON HERE I WENT AND WATCHED SOME CRICKET, AND AGAINST THE ODDS ENGLAND DREW THE MATCH AND SHOULD HAVE WON IT IN FACT, SO THE SKIPPER IS NOT A HAPPY MAN AS HE DID THE BILK OF THE WORK. i THEN PLAYED A LITTLE MAHJONG BUT HAD TO GIVE THAT UP AS MUM WANTED MY ATTENTION. bY THE TIME SHE WENT TO BED IT WAS NEARLY TIME FOR MARY TO GET HOME. YRISH DID COOK HER SUPPER BUT I HAVE BEEN SO TIED UP THAT I HAVEN'T EATEN YET AND AM FEELING PECKISH RIGHT NOW AND IT IS 9.35PM HERE. TRISH DID NOT DO MARY'S LUNCH BOX SO I WILL HAVE TO DO THAT BUT I AM GOING TO EAT FIRST. THIS EVENING I SPENT SOME TIME ONTHE PHONE WITH MONICA AND THEN HAVE JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH GINNY.

SO I DO TRY AND KEEP ACTIVE EVEN IF SITTING DOWN!

MONICA, THANKS FRO THE CHAT. IT WAS REALLY INTERESTING AND WE WILL DO IT AGAIN SOON. THAT IS A PROMISE.

GINNY ONCE AGAIN THANKS FRO MAKING E LAUGH AND CHEERING ME UP A BIT. WHEN SOMEONE YOUNGER MAKES REFERENCE TO THE FACT THAT IN THEIR YES I AM GETTING ON A BIT I OFTEN SY THAT THERE IS MANY A TURNE PLAYED ON AN OLD FIDDLE AND A STRADICARIUS IS PRICELESSAND THAT SHUTS THEM UP. YOU ARE DEFINITELY A STRADIVARIUS.

SHERRY, THAT IS THE LAST YOU NEED. TO GET THE FLU ON TOP OF AN ALREADY ACHING BACK IS NOT GOOD. I AM GALD YOU ARE TAKING TO OYOUR BED. IF THE WORST COMES TO THE WORST YOU CAN ALWAYS KEEP UP BY USING YOUR LAPTOP. I DO HOPE IT IS ONE OF THOSE THAT COMES ALONG BUT DOESN'T AHNG AROUND AND THAT YOU GET BETTER QUICKLY. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YUO TONIGHT.

TERESA, WHAT CAN ONE SAY EXCEPT YOUR FOUR LEGGED FAMILY ARE JUST SO CUTE. THEY ARE JUST SO ADORABLE. I IMAGIE YOU DO HAVE SOME REAL FUN WITH THEM.

LYNN, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT. EVERYONE HAS WEEKS LIKE THIS AND YOU WILLS OON LOSE THE SMALL GAIN. IN FACT YOU MAY FIND THAT IT HAS GIVEN YOUR METABOLISM A KICK START. I USED TO PLAN DAYS OFF ROMN TIME TO TIME AND EAT WHAT I WANTED TO. I FOUND THAT LONG TERM THIOSPROVED TO BE BENEFICIAL AS IT STOPS THE BODY FROM GETTING TOO USED TO A PARTICULAR LEVEL AND GETTING LAZY. ALSO, THANK YOU FOR THE EXPLANATION ON THAT MEAT. IT IS NOT A CUT WE ARE FAMILIAR WITH OVER HERE BUT IT COULD SOOM CATCH ON. MIND YOU, AS IT IS FROM THE SIRLOIN IT WILL PROBABLY BE EXPENSIVE. YOU NEED A MORTGAGE TO BUY SOME CUTS OF BEEF IN THE UK.

TAMMY, THE JOYS OF OWNING A DOG. YOU CAN ALWAYS PUT MONEY ON THE FACT THAT A DOG WILL DELIBERATELY WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE CLEANED UP BEFORE DECIDING TO UPSET THINGS BY BRINGING THE GARDEN INDOORS. IF IT IS RAINING I DARE NOT MOP THE KITCEN FLOOR. IT IS JUST A WASTE OF TIME. I ALSO DON'T PLAN ON WASHING THE CARPET EITHER AFOR THE SAME REASON. I THINK DEEP DOWN THEY TAKE A PERVERSE DELIGHT IN IT, LOL.

CAROL, WAS YOUR HUBBY EVER IN THE MILITARY? I ASK THIS BECAUSE WHEN WE WERE ON EXERCISE WE USED TO BE ABLE TO SLEEP ANYWHERE AND FRO SHOPRT PERIODS OF TIME AND THEN CARRY ON. I DO NOT ENVY THE JOB HE HAS UNDERTAKEN THOUGH. THAT IS A LOT OF WORK.

OMA, TRY NOT TO DO TOO MUCH. HAVE A GOOD ONE.

DEE, SORRY NO BITD REPORT TODAY. WILL MAKE UP FOR IT TOMORROW. HAVEN'T SEEN YOU AROUND LATELY. HOPE EVERYTHING IS WELL WITH YOU AND THAT YOUR MOTHER IS ALSO DOING OK.

AGAIN, SORRY I HAVEN'T BEEN AROUND TODAY. I WILL BE ON MORE TOMORROW. THAT I PROMISE. WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT? IT IS THE END OF FEBRUARY ALREADY AND ITDOESN'T SEEM BUT A FEW DAYS AGO THATWE WERE CLEEBRATING CHRISTMAS. TIME NEEDS TO SLOW DOWN

SO I WILL SATY GOODNIGHT AND GOD BLESS. OFF TO CHAT WITH CYNTHIA SOME MORE.

Sherry - sorry to hear about the Flu - perhaps that is what has your back stirred up - Flu makes me ache everywhere how ever it may be weather related too - I am aching today but there is moisture in the air today! Try to drink plenty of fluids(like you don't know that LOL) do I need to bring you something? Could send it through Ann's Jam Jet LOL

Lynn - it is a special state funded program to help women with children get into homes - red tape - paper work - state processes - you know! Then too they aren't finished with construction either!

OOps - soccer time - TTYL

Good Snowy morning gang.
Sherry, I'm so sorry you have the flu, on top of everything else. I know your were looking forward to a swim in that warm Hawaii water, but I promise we will get there soon. We still haven't been plowed out.( The runway has about a foot,and the JAMJET couldn't get out of the hanger, anyway.) Last year the association board, spent money to hire someone to clear our streets, but like everyone else,they are trying to save up, to get our roads repaved. Usually it just goes away, but this year has been very different. It's supposed to turn to rain today. Jim is busy baking bread. Grandma said "Never bake bread on a rainy day" So he has to hurry and get it done before the snow turns to rain. Most of the people that live here are former CA. I bet they wished now, that they had stayed South.
Teresa, Pepper has a twin, how old is he?
Well I need (not want) to go eat--I skipped breakfast, and I'm starting to feel it. It's tough being a diabetic, and trying to diet, and being in a wheelchair-getting it all right is the pits.
Have a great day
God Bless, Ann

Good Morning Team,
Well it is another chilly morning. . but clear and sunny. I did my weekly weigh in and was up a lb. Rats! I had a feeling that would happen, between too many snacks at the barbecue yesterday and not doing too well on keeping the calories low last week. Oh Well, it is a new week.

Mac. . .Sorry to hear the legs are failing to cooperate again. I hope you get stronger in time for the spring garden work. Tri tip is something that showed up a few years ago as a popular barbecue meat, beef. I did a quick google search and it says it is a thick bottom sirloin cut with good flavor and marbleing.

Teresa. . .sounds like you have lots of furniture moving in your future. . . busy times! Did your daughter custom build or is she buying an existing home and just waiting for it to close?

Tammy. . .You seem to be getting a lot of fitness just with all the cleaning time. I have wood and laminate floors because of the wheelchair, and with the dog and cats I seem to have to sweep every couple of days. Back when we had two dogs the hair would form little drifts from the air movement, kind of like tumbleweeds. I just refinished the dining room floor and stained it a darker color, and have now discovered that the white dog hair shows up really well!

Mary. . .Enjoy your busy Sunday

Carol. . . Nice to see you posting! Congrats on going down a couple of sizes. . . I'm looking forward to that. I have some clothes that I really like that are just hanging in my closet waiting for me to shrink.

Cynthia. . . The new computer is giving you problems after only a few days. . . bad luck! Is it hardware or software glitches? It sounds like you are feeling better since you've been running around town and cooking full meals, congrats!

Sherry. . .I hope you are having a good day. . .you an Ann haven't show up yet this morning, so I'm guessing you are in the jamjet on your way to a tropical paradise!!

Okay, off to do a little workout. Yesterday we installed a Perfect Pullup bar in the doorway of my craft room. . .I can't do pullups yet, but the high bar gives me a great thing to toss my stretchy band over and do lat pulldowns. See you later, Lynn

Good Morning, One and All emoticon
Today, I woke up around 8am, had coffee w/ my dad and mom, they're doing well.
I came home and got busy in the kitchen, yes I'm still cleaning it. I have spent 30 minutes sweeping, and moving and scrubbing. I finished sweeping and my big dog came in and flipped his bowl...dog food everywhere.......ggggrrrrr, ya gotta love em. emoticon
Yesterday I didn't do the stationary bike, so today I'll get my 20 minutes on it as well, and maybe do some vacuuming...the leaves and mud always makes it's way into my living room, it seems like Ruffus' paws have glue on them and releases it as he hits my
carpet.... emoticon
I plan on making chicken legs for dinner, oven fried maybe some mashed hubbard squash, as the veggie and starch. I am still trying to get my parents to eat balanced meals.
Which is a challenge at times. emoticon
ANYWAY, HAPPY SUNDAY AND NEW WEEK TO ONE AND ALL....'

Oh my Teresa, after reading all that you are doing I think I may have to go back to bed. Sleep was interrupted a few times with hubby in and out with his snow plowing. He left around 8 last night, came home ( no idea what time as didn't want to open eyes to look at clock) then around 4 this morning I heard his truck leave as he had more plowing to do. He will be out again this afternoon doing our yard and the neighbors. He'll snooze first in his chair for a bit. He can sleep 15 min. and get up and do things. His CB handle when he was a truck driver was Cat Napper. Fits him to a tee.
Good Morning to everyone else and have a great Sunday.

Carol



If there's a will, there's a way and I'll find that way.

GOOD AFTERNOON EEVERYONE.

WHAT A DAY SO FAR. WOKE UP LATE AS I HAD A TERRIBBLE NIGHT AND INITIALLY WOKE WITH MY HEAD FEELING REALLY COLD. CANNOT UNDERSTAND WHY AS I TEND TO HAVE THE DUVET RIGHT OVER ME. I TRIED TO SLEEP IN AND EVENTUALLY GOT UP AROUND 11 IN THE END. HOWEVER, I ALSO HAD SPASMS AND TREMORS REALLY BADLY. I STILL HAVE THEM ALTHOUGH THEY ARE NOT AS BAD FOR NOW. ONE THING THAT HAS NOT CHANGED THOUGH IS THE FACT THAT MY LEGS ARE REALLY WOBBLY TODAY. THIS I AM MORE OR LESS CONFINED TO MY CHAIR.

AS CYNTHIA WAS SAYING, WE WERE CHATTING AWHILE BEFORE I HAD TO GO AND GET LUNCH. (AND YES, WE ARE STILL GOOD FRIENDS. IT WAS NOT AN ARGUMENT, MERELY WHAT CYNTHIA SAID AND I HOPE TO CHAT AGAIN TO HER LATER ON TODAY). EVEN WITH TREMORS I HAD TO DO LUNCH BECAUSE MUM WILL NOT TOUCH THE COOKER. SHE HAS THE SHAKES SO I DON'T BLAME HER IN THAT RESPECT. IT WOULD BE TOO DANGEROUS FOR HER. LUCKILY IT WAS A SIMPLE LUNCH. WE HAD JUST FINISHED WHEN TERESA CAME ON LINE SO I CHATTED TO HER AS WELL. NOW I AM HERE.

MONICA, REALLY WELL DONE. WILL SPEAK TO YOU LATER AND AM LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.

NB: SLOWLY I AM GETTING ROUND ALL OF YOU, LOL. IT IS SO MUCH NCIER TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK ON A ONE TO ONE BASIS SO IF YOU WISH, YOU CAN SEND ME YOUR PHONE NUMBER AND I PROMISE TO GET IN TOUCH).

CARRIE, HOPE YOUR DAY IS GOING WELL.

CYNTHIA, GLAD YOU FEEL A ITTLE BETTER OW. GO AND ENJOY CHURCH AND WE WILL CHAT LATER ON.

TERESA, REALLY ENJOYED OUR CHAT BUT AM LOOKING FORWEARD TO SPEAKING TO YOU PROPERLY TOMORROW.

GINNY, WILL GIVE YOU A CALL LATER ON TODAY AS WELL.

BTW, SPEAKING TO TERESA, BOTH OF US HAVE DECIDED TO TYPE USING CAPITALS FROM NOW ON. THERE ARE MEMBERS OF THE TEAM WHO HAVE DIFFICULTY READING THE POSTS BECAUE OF THEIR SIGHT PROBLEMS SO USING CAPS MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER. i NOW REALISE WHY IT IS BOTH SHERRY AND OMA DO IT AS A MATTER OF COURSE.

WILL BE AT THE PC FOR THE REST OF THE DAY I THINK AS IT IS DIFFICULT TO MOVE. I AVE TO WAKE TRISH LATER ON IF SHE ISN'T UP BY HERSELF. SHE DOESN' T KNOW IT YET BU SHE IS GOING TO DO MARY'S SUPPER AND HER LUNCH BOX.

WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU ALL LATER ON. QUIET SO FAR SO WILL CHECK BACK IN A COUPLE OF HOURS.

Good morning all!
Well, thus far this morning ---I've exchanged words with MAC (of all people! ) LOL, nothing serious--just a difference of opinion.
---My new Dell laptop has already crapped out...Did that this morning...In the midst of the exchange with Mac...guess it can't handle confrontation! haha. I'm on the PC now (and yes, Mac and I are still wonderful friends, no fears).
---and I've procrastinated my workout by Sparking. (ever done that??) Yesterday, I had a good time with my PT who comes to my home for my therapy. We had a good workout and she showed me things that I can safely do to build up my hip muscles (and legs in general) and also told me about a water exercise class that meets periodically at the "local" high school pool (*in quotes because it is well over a half hour's drive from here). The class is called "Rusty Hinges" (perfect for someone with bionic parts like me!) and I've also lined up a friend --who also has "rusty hinges" and fortunately (for me) a car, --to go with me. So as soon as I'm done writing this note, I'm off to the website of the group to find out when they next meet! I'm very excited about this as I've known for some time it is exactly what I need, but really thought there was no possibility of it happening.

However, (and I just now thought of this) , it will probably be quite a long time before I can participate. I'm not allowed even to take a bath, let alone go in a public pool -due to the risk of infection in my recent incision. And by the time I AM allowed in, I will have a brand NEW incision on the opposite hip! And then will have to wait for THAT to heal. I will be lucky to get any swimming in even this summer! Pooh!! (that expression of disgust always cracked me up...sounds like something Scarlett O'Hara might say!)

Well, I probably really SHOULD get about my exercises so I can then make an educated decision about going to church this morning. I went to a dinner there last night and had to make an early exit after only an hour there (that's called, "eating and running")...I was really in too much pain to stay. So the question begs asking whether this morning's service will be feasible. Yesterday was a VERY busy day. And after I got home last night from the dinner, out of pity, i cooked a full dinner for Eric...who probably hasn't had a normal meal in well over two or three weeks and was starving.

So, I'm off to exercise...we''ll see about church. And if that sounds like mixed up priorities, it really isn't, as working out usually makes me feel BETTER in the long run.

Have a great Sunday!

Whispering - Good Morning Everyone as I am sure most of you except for Mac and maybe Ginny are still asleep LOL
Woke up at 4:45 this morning - Go figure
Maybe at least this way I can get a post in without being interrupted by someone LOL
NO - NO such luck - of course - naturally the 4 legged girls and boy had to stumble in here half asleep for their morning treat - LOL
Mercy this house just isn't Big enough to get away - LOL - I am only teasing however seems like here lately every time I sit down to post or do something - here comes someone!

My DD is so excited and gets more excited the closer it gets to the time frame for her to get her house - I can't blame her - she has been with my SIL for over a year now - and even though her and the girls have their own area of my SIL's house, and SIL has been very kind with them - it is not the same as having your OWN home!
In trying to be supportive of her excitement - she is running my legs off LOL
Mom comes look at this or that (at different stores) - Mom what do you think - Mom do you think this is a good deal - Mom will this match or look good with the rest of my furniture - Mom should I just go ahead and purchase this ETC etc
I believe I mentioned her purchases the other day - but maybe not - so if I did just sweetly listen again LOL
She purchased a new dining room set - a round oak table top with rod iron scrolled legs - it has 4 chairs with it - the backs the scrolled rod iron and the seats a beautiful thick woven material of burgandy and tan almost a pasley pattern! Very nice set - found it on sale for less than 500.00
The reason she had to purchase a new dining room set is her current dining set which sits 6-8 people is too large to fit in her new dining room without blocking the back patio entrance door or extending into the living area some! The living area is all open concept!
She purchased the girls a new bedroom set - as they are getting older now and this set has a look that will carry them through high school - the set is antique white - it has the dresser/mirror - the chest - both with crystal drawer pulls - a hutch with glass doors ( to house their china dolls) and a twin bed - fortunately one of the twin beds they currently have will match the set perfectly ( as the girls will be sharing a room )
She purchased a cherry wood head and foot board for her room( the center of the head board has rod iron in it) as unfortunately right before she left Abilene to come here a drunk driver ran threw her Bedroom wall and shattered her bed - made me sick - it was a beautiful bed with high posters that they had purchased in Germany! Course the driver had NO insurance and is suppose to be making restitution but that has been nearly 2 yrs and she hasn't recieved anything from him !!!
Mac - that is where we were the day you attempted to call !!
Now I have shared all these details - 1) to give you a visual of the furniture - - 2) to explain how many pieces she purchased - that we now have to re arrange her storage unit to hold!
Tell me that is not going to be interesting!
We have to place the purchases in storage as her house will not be ready to take possession til April and the furniture company would only hold the purchases for 2 weeks for us! She had to go ahead and purchase the items as most of it was on sale and would have gone back up to regular price by the weekend!
All that said - Guess what I will be helping with next week - Getting the storage unit moved around to hold the new items! My DD is giving my friend her old dining set as it is larger than my friend has now! My friend entertains alot so it will work out good for both of them!
There is a sectional sofa in there that DD and my friend will take to the womens shelter to donate. will be a nice addition for one of the women and their children!
Those 2 items alone will free up alot of space - the rest will be just re-organizing what is left to make room ! When we get all that accomplished the furniture company will deliver the purchased items to the storage unit!
Then in about 2-3 weeks after that - it will all have to be moved again - MERCY - what a visious cycle LOL
It will be worth it - once it is all said and done though - my DD and GD's will be in their own home!

Well now that I have wrote a book for y'all - I think I will go get another cup of coffee LOL

Sherry - the only items I purchased yesterday was 2 pairs of soccer shorts and soccer shirts for my GD's - they have soccer try outs today and thought they would enjoy something new to wear LOL
I sure did have fun - helping my friend spend her money though!
PS. like the team pic!

I have replied back. I have no idea if the yoga instructor noticed it or not, but I have settled down at yoga by using the penny. She did notice that I was calmer though. I went swimming as well. The swimming did not hurt my foot and I have not been in pain since I swam.

Hello Everyone
Just got home about 30 minutes ago from San Angelo
We had a nice time - had tires put on the truck - shopped - had Lunch with Tina's son - Kendall and his Girlfriend Jenna
Shopped some more - went to visit another friend who recently moved to San Angelo - got to see her grand baby - she is 8 1/2 months - her name is Alylaha (SP) - so sweet!
Then made the drive back - all countryside nothing in between hardly - it is beautiful during the summer but currently just dried grass and hills!
Have to watch out for Deer though - we saw 2 dead deer on the roadside on the way back - don't think they were there this morning but could have been - it was still kind of dark when we went through that area!
Soccer try outs for My GD's tomorrow
Well DD here wants me to ride with her - TTYL

Monica, have sent you an answer. Good you got no nasties on the PC. You have done a defrag and cleaned your cookies. One last jon and that is to delete all of you tempporary files if oyu haven't alreaady done so. What you can do is to go to the Tools menu on your toolbar and then Internet Oprions. You will see a section in the centre which says Browsing History. Press delete and it will bring up a screen. You shouldtick browsing history, cookies and temporary files. This will then tell the PC to do all of that in one go. If you go into Settings on the Browsing history oyu can aske the PC to do all of this automatically for you. From now on your should see a difference in the speed of your PC. If not then there is something else wrong whcih oyu will not be able to sort. It could be a myriad of reasons so best to seek professional advice.

Sherry, I thought that the pics were embedded and that you couldn't copy them. Thanks for that; I now have my own copy. As for yourself; i empathise entirely. It has been me for the past couple of days that had to succumb to the chair and, whilst in pain, I was not nearly as bad as you are. No way am I going to preach to the converted. You know what you can and cannot do. I really do feel for you right now. You are in my prayers tonight for a speedy recovery back to your normal self.

Ann, we had plans to do stuff this year. However, over here the price of petrol is around £1.27 per LITRE! (just over $2). That is on top of the fact that our average food shop has gone up by around 14% over the past year. So like you, we are thinking again and will be cutting down on the litle exrtas and luxuries. I am not going to get into politics as it always causes trouble but I know what I would like to do to the people who caused this to happen.

Carol, who is the biggest kid? lol. I bet your hubby is having a blast. Mind you, i guess they might be a little chilly when they get back inside. Don't you feel so good now that you have lost at least two sizes? It makes you feel smug with yourself as you know you deserve it. Well done. Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? lol.. emoticon

Chris, you keep right on truckin'. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Ok boys and girls. Time for bed. Lucky decided to go ages go and now I am going to have to kick him out of his to go out. It is a shame but I want to sleep undisturbed if I can, not to mention the fact that he will not argue as he gets a nightly treat.

So, same thing tomorrow. England are playing India tomorrow so I might be on a little earlier as I cannot see them winning. India are on home soil and are really a lot stronger than our side anyway. If we beat them it will be a miracle, although they do happen occasionally.

Will be back first thing before I start watching so I will catch up as much as I can then.

Goodnight and God bless. Hope you all have sweet dreams when you go.

Lynn, we defiantly are reconsidering the purchase of a new Roadtrek camper van. At $5.00 a gallon, camping just moved into the category of luxuries. We are just going to wait and see what happens to the economy. With all the turbulence in the world, who knows what will happen.
Still snowing and 30 degrees at 1:30 PM.
Monica--glad your electric is back on. We don't want you freezing and studying by candle light.
I have been feeling the BURN in my knees today, so am not working out. Sunday is supposed to be my free day, but maybe I can makeup then for today.

Forward, Slow but sure. Like the turtle, Never to look back.
