GOOD EVENING MY FRIEND. MAYBE BETTY WILL COME BACK TO "SEE" US, SOMETIME.

BOY, I WISH THAT I LIKED HOT WEATHER. DON'T KNOW WHAT STATE YOUR IN, BUT HERE IN OKLAHOMA THE AVERAGE SUMMER HIGH IS 100 DEGREES. I HATE IT. I HAD A HYSTERECTOMY JUST OVER 2 YEARS AGO, AND SINCE THEN I HAVE FELT LIKE I AM BURNING UP ALL THE TIME....BUT THE VERY WORST FOR ME IS DURING THE SUMMER. I AM BEYOND MISERABLE.

I HOPE THAT YOU HAD A GREAT TIME SHOPPING FOR YOUR NEW HOME TODAY. IT SOUNDS LIKE FUN. WISH I COULD HAVE GONE WITH AND HELPED YOU. TELL ME SOME OF THE THINGS THAT YOU GOT....WOULD YOU?

SOUNDS LIKE YOU ALSO HAD A BUSY DAY WITH WASHING FLOORS & VACUUMING....HOUSEWORK, I HATE IT BUT IT HAS TO BE DONE.

MY WASHING MACHINE IS BROKE........AGAIN!!!! THIRD TIME IN THE LAST MONTH. THE WASHER REPAIR MAN SAID THAT IT IS GOING TO COST A LOT MORE TO FIX IT THEN TO BUY A BRAND NEW ONE. GUESS I CAN'T COMPLAIN TOO MUCH, AS IT IS 17 YEARS OLD AND HAS BEEN THRU THE RAISING OF 3 CHILDREN. SO ME & DH ARE GOING TO LOWE'S NEXT AND GET A NEW ONE. IN THE MEAN TIME.....I GET TO LUG LAUNDRY TO THE LAUNDRYMAT. OH JOY!!!

I HOPE YOU WILL HAVE A BLESSED TUESDAY MY FRIEND.

I GOTTA GO AND GET DH & DD INTO BED. TALK TO YA MORE TOMORROW.

HUGS,
~~STARR~~

HAPPY 2014. MAKE IT A FUN & HEALTHY YEAR!

Hello Sherry,

I got a spark mail from Betty last night, telling me that she was going to have to drop our team. I really hate that for her. I already miss her.

I hope that you will have a wonderful week this week.

Our weather is going to be nice all week, compared to what it was last week. It will be cooler, hooray!

Next Saturday my friend from Oregon will be flying in to spend 3 weeks with us. We have not seen her in a year. Am really looking forward to that visit. I hope that the weather will stay cooler then normal while she is here, so that we can go and do things without "burning" up.

I slept only 4 & 1/2 hours last night. DH called me at 3 AM needing help with his urinal, so that he could pee. I never did get back to sleep!! So, I have a feeling that it is going to be a LLLOOONNNGGG day for me. Right now I am so sleepy that I can hardly hold my eyes open, which is making it difficult to concentrate. emoticon

You take care and have a blessed day my friend.

~~Starr~~

HAPPY 2014. MAKE IT A FUN & HEALTHY YEAR!

Sherry, I was finishing reading my mail and then was going to write you. I told
starr that I am going to have to drop this group. I don't want to, but it just has taken so much of my time I neglect keeping things up, even in this tiny apt. As I told Starr, everything takes me so long to do. Getting dressed in a chair, using the bathroom all are major feats for me to perform. I can't stand unless I am hanging on to something or leaning on something. I slide my feet to turn etc. They do have a person to clean ???? and one who does laundry. Others who can afford it have an attendant that helps them dress and take showers etc. If I do something I want to do it right. This is a little different, there are so many posts and I'd like to ans. them all, not possible! You and Starr were very dear to me, I do hate to leave but I can't ignore the things that need to be done in the apt. and taking the dog out 3-5 times is another chunk out of my day. I am staying with the "people who need to lose 50lbs and up" even that is not right, it is something like that, also are 50 years old and up. My memory has flown the coop! I would like to check on you two once in a while. Sending my love, Betty... emoticon

Remember: When you help someone up a hill, you're a little nearer to the top yourself! That's what I see here, so many willing to help us to the top!

Hi Starr! I get to go to services here every other week. Not like the sermons we were used to put they do quote scriptures and expand on them. It isn't the best situation as the service goes on while some people are still eating and are not very courteous enough to keep their voices down. This facility has a big room where they have parties, brunches and entertainment (once a week different musical groups come) the eating area is right next to it.
Oh how I would like that "burst of energy". That is something I have not had in a many years.
It is a beautiful day, Will enjoy taking the dog out.
Sending hugs, love, Betty

HI BETTY, SHERRY AND EVERYONE.

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS A BLESSED SUNDAY.

DD & I ARE GETTING READY TO GO TO CHURCH. WE ONLY GET TO GO 2 SUNDAY'S A MONTH, BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THAT DH'S HOME HEALTH CARE AIDE CAN BE HERE FOR HIM ON SUNDAY. SO I AM THANKFUL FOR WHAT I CAN GET.

LAST N IGHT I HAD A BURST OF ENERGY. I PEELED AND CHOPPED 12 ONIONS, 3 BELL PEPPERS. AND MADE A BATCH OF HOMEMADE LAUNDRY SOAP. I WISH THAT I COULD GET A BURST OF ENERGY LIKE THAT EVERYDAY!

WHEN I GET HOME FROM CHURCH I NEED TO GET BUSY ON GREETING CARDS FOR CHURCH. EVERY WEEK I SENT CARDS TO ANYONE AT CHURCH WHO IS HAVING A BIRTHDAY, ANNIVERSARY, IS SICK, GRADUATING, HAS HAD A DEATH IN THE FAMILY, ECT. AND I AM BEHIND THIS WEEK. I USUALLY HAVE EVERYTHING IN THE MAIL BY YESTERDAY.

OK, GOTTA GO.

LOVE YOU ALL.

TALK TO YOU LATER.

~~STARR~~

HAPPY 2014. MAKE IT A FUN & HEALTHY YEAR!

Sherry, isn't it funny the way time flies?
When I came back, I did remember yours and Vicki's names. There may be more but it seem like they were all new. There are probably a couple more that may come back to me.
I have fallen 3 times, my left knee just gave way and down I went. I can't get up, so had to call for help, the last time 7 workers came rushing in! I forgot to ask my daughter if we got charged for that, they like to add charges every time they can. The staff is very nice but who ever does the billing can add charges for different (extra) help. Praise the Lord I have not sprained or broken anything!
Tomorrow I take the shuttle to a grocery store. I like to get some different fruit than they have here. I like mangoes & grapes, they don't have them here. Off to reading the mail, then filing, Lots of hugs, Betty emoticon

Thanks Vicki, breakfast is one meal I don't skimp on. I had two eggs, bowl of fruit, raisin toast and two extra crispy bacon. The bacon does carry a little guilt because of the nitrates, so I do not have it often.
Gloomy morning, quite a difference from yesterday. There was a cool/cold wind, thankfully the dog did not dawdle!
Today is file papers day. I am not good at filing things immediately. No activity I am interested in going on today. Hope you are doing well, much love, Betty

Hi Betty! Welcome Back...good to see you. Sure there are plenty of 'newbies'. But I've been missing in action too. This must be the month for the return of the wayward ones. lol

Good for you getting 1/2 meals instead of whole ones. I'm sure its difficult in the Assisted Living Center if they are plying you with yummy desserts. Not sure I'd have the will power to do what you are doing. Keep up the good work.

I could not believe how many new people have joined. Guess I have been lost in the shuffle. Ijust can't keep up with the 4 groups I am in. But it was here and here only that I announced my losing 9lbs 12 oz. Being glued to my chair has made losing very hard. As I mentioned (evidently when most of you were not here) before, I just ask for half serving of meals (I live in an assisted living facility) and skip the luscious desserts they tempt you with. They weigh just once a month, there is no way I could get on a regular scale. They use a chair scale. I lost 8.5 since last month's weigh-in. I started out at 209 and today it was 191.1. Reading many of the blogs and other members messages is a great inspiration for me. I am sorry that I have been negligent in coming here. To be honest I had forgotten about you all. I have a lot of memory loss problems, often hearing my daughter say "but mom I told you that yest. etc." Post polio syndrome MAY have a part of the reason I forget things. Our neurons in our brains were affected as well as our limbs etc, OK, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!! Reading all your posts was great, so many of you garden and how I envy you! It is past my bed time but I too am watching Idol. Can't sleep in very long as my dog will need to go out.
Good thing, as I am getting more fresh air and sunshine than I ever did at my house. Night to all, and I hope I am forgiven for being delinquent. emoticon Hugs Betty
