I had my SIL put in a handicap toilet for me. My hip was bothering me and it has helped. My hip is better most of the time, not sure what caused the pain.

I put in a miserable night. Even got up and got a book and read for awhile. I think that I drank coffee too late and now I am tired. I got up early because I told my neighbor I would take her to friendship meals special breakfast. But after I got dressed and called to tell her I was on my way, I got no answer. I tried several times and she never answered. She is famous for spending time at the bar nearly every night so I just can imagine that she slept in this morning. She lives alone (most of the time) so I have been worried about her. I called the bar owner to see if she partied all night but he said he did not work last night. I am thinking seriously about not taking her anymore. I did not go to the breakfast and I feel bad about it because they had it special to bring the people count up for the month. 12 miles to eat breakfast, I very seldom eat that much breakfast. Nothing going on today but that is okay, I think I will go lay down and see if I can catch a nap.

Chilly and damp here today.

I really have to call my friend and arrange to pick up the special raised potty - it'll make it easier on my hip, and then I won't have to worry about having to go when the bathroom is occupied!

Seeing more progress in my autistic student! That's always a thrill! Shel

Makes me sad, I have two bathrooms and only one me. I remember when my kids were in school and I was going to work. My DH was a farmer so he just stayed in bed until we were out of the house and then he had the bathroom all to himself.

I took my neighbor to neighboring town across the border (Kansas, I live just a few blocks from the border) for friendship meals. She says she is going to go get her driver's license next week. Then she will never be home. She is a little mentally challenged but pretty smart. She doesn't use very good judgement when it comes to men, she know how to work them for her advantage.

Nothing else going on...

I'm blessed that my older DD - the one who isn't very active on this board, Abi! - lives with me, along with her significant other and my 5 grands. Of course, at times it's a challenge - especially in the mornings when everyone vies for the bathroom - but for the most part, we get along fine! Shel

Not much going on here. My SIL came by for a cup of coffee and then on to the farm to do some work. He is trimming trees, tearing down old buildings and etc. My dearly departed DH would be so proud of the way the farms are looking.

My son was going to come this evening but has decided to come for lunch tomorrow as he will be on vacation for a few days then. I think we will have hamburger stew.,

Sorry i have been gone awhile, Kids here to paint outside of my house but it looked like rain. We did inside projects and after lunch we painted. Had weekend guests at night that needed a place to sleep.They knew we were painting and even helped. Sunday all was quiet and we were resting and noticed a water spot on the carpet. Closer investigation showed us the hot water heater was rusting through and leaking! So we spent the day replacing that yesterday. Not all done but almost so tomorrow will be more of the same!! Whew!! I am ready to have my house back in order. ;-)

Marlene so glad you are doing so well and had a good time at church meetings and at school reunion.

Shelley I am so blessed. Both of my sons have married friends children. We have all been friends for a very long time. It helps so much with the loss of my DH. I am glad they knew and loved him and don't find it hard when I speak of him. I pray when my other 2 marry if we aren't friends with the spouses' families we will become so!!

Off to get more done around here!!
Hugs to you both!!

I have been SOOOOO LAZY today!
Saturday I went to the women's breakfast, which included fun fellowship and an uplifting sermonette. Sunday I pedaled 30 minutes, watching Charles Stanley, and decided just to chill at home. And today since there was no school, I just relaxed and watched programs on Netflix - except when a student came by for about 1 1/2 hours for a little math tutoring. I will find retirement very easy to settle into! But - not for a few years yet! Shel

Went to my town's alumni lunch today. School closed here in 1973 but there were a lot in attendance. They served soup and chile. A lot of the people I did not know as I did not go to school here but there were several that I did know.

Sorry I have not been here lately, seems just no time. Yesterday I worked on the garage getting things a little better organized. I was going out to vacuum but not enough energy, I felt really good yesterday and I think I might have over done it a bit. I have been taking my friend and neighbor 12 miles to gospel meeting every night this week. That is over now so maybe I can get more done here, Waiting for rain. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

When I got engaged to Levi I didn't realize he was related to half the people I already knew in Iquitos. So now friends are becoming family! Shel

I had a good weekend away with my kids. Went to visit DDil's parents. We have been friends for 21 yrs and then 2 of our kids married so now we are family! :-)

Marlene hoping you had a great time at your reunion! Glad you have so much family and great friends. Here there are a lot of kids but the old schools are torn down to make room for new and "better". That is sad too. I saw the school where DFil and his siblings went to school! Love being able to show my kids. Their school only went to 8th grade.

Shelley, yes we are here, thank the Lord! Glad you got your shopping done. Great to make a menu. Sure helps us stay on track!

Hugs to all.

Wow, earthquakes and storms! Glad my Sparkbuddies here are okay!

Yesterday Abi and I went grocery shopping for the month - she did meal planning as she went, and we used up all the food "stamps" plus what I chipped in (about $130) - that's about $730 for 8 people. Not to mention the non-foodstuffs: toilet paper, hygiene and cleaning stuff. But towards the last 10 days of the month we run out of certain things - and of course we go through about a loaf of bread a day, and the milk has to be replaced...and that's what I contribute...and there are times when we go to the local food cupboard, because FIVE KIDS...It's a challenge! But we haven't gone hungry (obviously, since we're still trying to lose weight!)

I got on my bike for 30 minutes while watching Charles Stanley this morning. Right now I'm trying to think of what to have for breakfast - I had my cup of coffee, and it's curbed my appetite.

Today is my high school alumni reunion. My school is no longer there as many of the schools of my highs school days. It is sad that they close the old schools because there are not enough kids to keep them open. Now the kids travel on a bus much further. My sis in law will be here around 10 and will go with me along with a cousin she is bringing with her. My sis in law did not go to school where I went but my late brother did and she is friends with a lot of his classmates. My cousin that she is bringing with her is 93 and looks better than I do. She is slim and trim has dark hair (I don't know if that is natural or not) She has a sharp mind, gets around good and always looks good.

It is cold this morning, down to 39. I have the furnace on but it is to warm up today and even warmer in the 80s tomorrow.

We had an earthquake with no damage that I know of yesterday. It really shook the house and I thought it was going to shake the deck off the house. Only lasted they said 5 seconds but seemed much longer than that. Sure was scary, Oklahoma has had a lot of these lately. This was several miles from here but the news said it was a 4.4.

After our wild but short storm yesterday we are fine. Other locals lost trees that some smashed homes and cars. One local Bible college lost the roof off the girls dorm which landed in the parking lot and smashed their cars. Praise the Lord no one was seriously hurt or killed!

Hurray for a new month Shelley!! ;-)

Shelley I imagine you are tried after a day like today!

I thought most of the business matters were taken care of but there is a glitch and more work to do. So .... I keep plugging along! God is faithful and the money is stretching amazingly! He is so faithful to us!!

Wow, Marlene, what a day!

The teacher called in today, because of family illness. We have a sub. So The other two paras and I help keep the routine going. We were KINDA hoping one or another child wouldn't be in today, but all 8 arrived, full of energy and the dickens! Gotta love 'em, though! Shel

I was here last night but I guess my post did not go to the board. I was gone all day yesterday, my DIL had shoulder surgery last week and yesterday it was draining and it is not supposed to do that. My son could not get off work to take her to Wichita so I left here at 5:45 AM went to her house 30 miles away and picked her up and took her to Wichita. We were expecting to just see the Dr and come home. NO!!! he said she would have to go back to surgery at 2 pm. Her Dr. appointment was at 8 am way out in eastern Wichita. 8 am is when everyone is going to work. The traffic was terrible, I turned on my GPS and went with the flow. We were just a couple minutes late but would have been early if the traffic had not been so bad. I sat at the Dr's office and then again at the surgery center. They took her for pre op at 10:30 and then at 12 noon took her to surgery. About 1 she went to recovery and I sat with her there till a Dr. came in to put in what they called a PIC line. I sat in the waiting room while they did that, I was sure glad I remembered to put a book in my purse. By 4 they were done and I went back to recovery to sit. She was looking good and told me I looked tired and I should go home. She was to stay in recovery until 5. Then were going to keep her in observation all night. So I headed home, turned the GPS on to help me get out of Wichita and I came straight home 90 miles. A really long day but I came here last evening to tell you where I was all day and guess I never got the message sent. Gave up and went to bed. My son was taking today off to go get her. I was glad that I was able to take her and you can do about anything you set your mind to like driving in traffic in Wichita, it was just about as bad coming home as that was when people were getting off work.

Shelley congrats on the cardio!! It takes a while to build the routine and the stamina! I can imagine you are tired when you get home!

Well, I did a half hour on the bike this morning. I want to get back into doing the strength exercises, but just haven't gotten to it yet. I suppose at least for now I seem to be getting back into the doing the cardio.

I usually get home from work by 4:30, and I'm so tuckered out, having been up since 5 or so. I will be so glad when I can retire...in a few years...Shel

Hi Marlene!!
How nice to get your hair done and your nails too. Hope it helps your nails like you hope. Mine are similar. I have tried nail wraps which are like stickers and they looked lovely but after they were taken off I realized how much damage I had done to my nails while wearing them. ;-)
Hope you have a lovely trip to Florida.

I went to get my hair cut this morning and asked about a manicure. So now I have bright red fingernails. I will probably go back every two weeks until time to go to Florida in November. I had the acrylic polish that is supposed to last longer. My fingernails split so bad so I am hoping this will help.

I went to start and updated my preferences. On the type of meals I took off tofu, pork and I think something else. Now the menu is more user friendly for me. You can change the daily menu to your own taste. Now I hope maybe I can stick to my calories. I don't exercise much because my leg bothers me, I can walk okay but it is uncomfortable.

Hi Ladies!!
Today seems much better for DD and I. I am not sure why we had such an emotionally hard time missing my DH her DDad for a couple days but today is better. Guess those days will just come. Nice to know others care and are faithful to pray for us! Thank you for your prayers too.

Shelley glad you had a good time yesterday. Most times it isn't about winning but the fellowship and sounds like you had a good time!
Congrats for getting on the bike!!

Marlene hope you are doing well and getting much done!

Hugs to all!!

Well, I came in last in the game, but had a nice time anyway with old friends. And the weather was perfect.

We continue with Indian summer today. I only got on the bike for 10 minutes, but I did push the speed for a few of them. Shel

Ended up staying home last night and listening to one of their recorded sermons. Sometimes I just want to STAY HOME.
This morning I coaxed myself into getting on the bike while watching Charles Stanley/In Touch. Got in a good 30 minutes, then showered. I'm going to my friend's cottage by the lake for a Scrabble game. Supposed to be nice weather! Shel

I am doing great except for a little hip pain that I baby and limp a little. I have been extremely busy and it does not look like it is going to slow down much.

Shelly hope you have a good time seeing folks you haven't seen for awhile.

Trying to get more things done that DH used to do. Good Grief there surely are a lot of things to adjust too and to figure out how to do. Not at all fun. Out to dinner with friends tonight. Glad there is something to look forward too after a day of frustration!

Hope Everyone has a good day and a happy weekend!

So glad it's Friday! Time for a happy dance! emoticon I did 31 minutes on the bike (the extra minute was to bring it to an even 4 miles). I got an email from my Scrabble buddy that we're meeting at her cottage on Sunday - so I think I'll go to my former church which has service on Sat. eve. It'll be nice to see folks again anyway.
Have a good weekend, all! Shel

Shelley so glad there are improvements with the new student! What a comfort to him that you speak his native language. Nice of you to see the teachers for your DD. Hope you had a good time getting your hair done! Some adult conversation and time to take care of your self it always good!!

Time is coming down to the wire here. Getting all things done I can this last month before the baby is due! I want to be available to Ddil and DS if baby is early. If baby is late then I just have time to get more done at home. :-) Working on the hand quilting on the baby's quilt so it should be done when it is needed! ;-)

Marlene hope all is well and you are having a good time getting the bldg ready for the reunion!!

Hugs to all!!

Our new student did better today - he was more involved in the group activities. We heard him say a few words even. He has lovely, loving parents.
Open House at the school. Since I have to stay a bit late anyway, I suggested to my DSIL that I meet with the 3 kids' teachers to see if there are any concerns, or GOOD reports!
Then when I gt home, I'm going with DD to get a haircut. Then I'll color it.

Chilly morning, but very warm now! Shel

Well, I skipped this morning's bike ride, resetting the alarm for 6:20, but getting up when my daughter woke the kids about 10 after! My hip is really achey. Maybe from the 30 minutes I did yesterday, I dunno! But, I'm not giving up, just giving it a little rest today, especially since I have to go to the store.

Got a new student today, very challenging, low functioning autism, little to no English (so the teacher is glad I'm there with my Spanish!)

I came home from the ladies retreat and went to the Community Building to help get pictures hung, on the way home I picked up my great grand daughter and she stayed with me until around 5 today. I have been busy watering my yard. I just have not gotten here to post. I am also trying to do some house work. Tomorrow afternoon the quilters get together and then we have a Bible Study. I need to study for that. Thursday a couple other ladies and I will go to the old building and work on cleaning up trophy's that have been there for years and not taken care of. The old building is what is what is left of the school that closed years ago. The pictures that were hung were Senior pictures from 1903 until 1961 when the high school closed and went to another town. The grade school stayed here until 1973 and there were 8th grade graduate pictures to hang, too. The school alumni reunion is coming soon and they will use the new building so we are rushing on getting the memories put in the new building. It is history and quite interesting.

Hi Friends,
Another busy day here. But we are beginning to get into a routine of exercise and healthy eating again. Grief sure takes a lot out of a person and I thought care giving did? Grief is harder by far. But then I guess I am "preaching to the choir" here, aren't I?!! DD's computer lost it's hard drive on Saturday. It isn't much more than a yr old. So thankful she had the extended warranty on it. They are replacing her hard drive today. I hope this is not a constant problem. I just got mine in July and don't want the same issues.

Shelley, Spark People articles say to keep the same schedule all week long for sleeping and it sounds like you did that this past weekend. I am proud of you for continuing to ride your bike. We are beginning to walk again in the mornings. It is easier now that it is cooler. Love to wake up to 70 instead of 90 degrees! ;-)

Hope Everyone has a great day!

Saturday I went with my coworker for a Professional Development (PD) meeting, from 8:30-3:30. We were given breakfast (it was good!) and the seminar was very interesting. We will get 6 credits towards the 75 we need every 5 years to maintain our certification as Teacher Assistants.

Today I got up at 5 and put in 30 minutes on the bike before showering. Later I have to go to the store for milk and a few other things.Busy busy busy!

Mercy I have been gone a good while. So sorry! Having all the family together over the weekend was wonderful! Had a great celebration together. DS caught the cold going around so was sorry he felt badly but he did carry on with the family. I hope no one else caught it.

Shelley good job with the bike and working with the schedule! Sorry it is complicated! Nice to get so much fresh produce from the farmers market. The apple pies sound wonderful!!

Marlene glad your DSil changed your alarm battery and you found a way to sleep with it's constant chirping. That is miserable! Hope you have gotten over the stiffness and soreness from keeping Great Grandson. Hope you had a good dinner after church Sunday night. So kind of everyone to have a farewell party for this lady! I am assuming her Dear Mom passed?

Hugs to all and here it is time for another happy weekend!!

Enjoy the retreat!

So, today I am trying once again to rise before everyone else, 5 am, so I can exercise and shower before the bathroom rush. I will probably want to nap as soon as I get home at 4:30! I want to start making some apple pies, getting the kids involved in peeling and such.Shel

Yeah, I recently got new batteries for my alarms - mainly cuz I had to change the one in my scale, so I figured, may as well for the detectors too.

I've been having trouble getting into an exercise routine. I tried doing it later when i got home from work, but as I expected, I'm just too tired. I guess I'll just have to get up an hour before the kids! Shel

I am sleepy tonight. I went to bed fairly early last night then at 11:30 a smoke alarm started chirping every so often. I checked no smoke. I used to change the battery out on the farm but my ceiling is higher here and no was was I going to climb a ladder. So I went back to bed with doors to my bedroom closed and a pillow over my head. I could still hear the chirp so I turned on the TV to a easy listening music channel and finally went to sleep It was still chirping when I got up this morning but soon the battery gave up. My sweet son in law came this afternoon and changed the battery in all the smoke alarms. Now no more chirping. But I am sleepy.

It is cool here today, in the 50s. I turned the AC to off. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the 40s then start warming back up. Still no rain so if we don't get any this time I will have to turn on the rain train.

I am really stiff today, probably can blame a 5 month old that I am not used to carrying around?? I slept longer than usual last night, making up for the night before I guess.

Just had a phone call inviting me to a cook out on Sunday night after church as a farewell to a lady that is moving to Arizona, she came a few years ago to be with I think her elderly mother and now she is moving back.

I managed 16 minutes on the bike yesterday. I'm going to aim for 25 today. I'm also going to try to get back on the resistance band - I have been so slack in strength exercises!
I want to go to public market tomorrow - apple time! And Concord grapes! And squashes! All the produce! Shel


Glitterfairy77 is my daughter!

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

Welcome Home Shelley!! I now you have been home for a bit, but you have been missed and wanted you to know how much we cherish your presence! You did a wonderful job while away, staying in touch. I wouldn't have guessed you would have been able to do as well as you did!!
Great idea to sleep a bit later and work out in the afternoon.

We are getting rain today. So glad I go the outdoor chores done first. What a blessing!
DS will be home tonight and we will have a good day together tomorrow with the family! Surprise party for DS #3 tomorrow afternoon with our family and his wife's family. Their baby is due in mid Nov so this is their first and last birthdays to enjoy as a married couple but without children. They are making them special.

Marlene hope you are resting after keeping little Henry (hope I remembered his name correctly.)

Hugs to all

Daddy'sGirl, I was away for 2 months, although while I was in Lima I had regular access and stopped by the message boards more often.

I decided I'm going to try to get up a bit LATER (6:30) and get on my bike when I get HOME from work, so I don't have to deal with fighting for the bathroom. Shel

I walked three blocks to pay a bill and the coop Then home I worked in the yard and was just finishing up when Henry came (5 months old) to spend the day and night with me, so that is what I will be doing the rest of the day. DGS brought me tomatoes, guess that is payment for babysitting? I had Henry last week and we got along fine. I am hoping we will this time, too.

Cloudy and cooler but no rain. I have my flowers in front watered so maybe it will rain now??

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your interests, but also to the interests of others.

Nice pic Marlene!! Mother/Daughter pics are so nice. I love the ones I have with my DD.

Shelley so glad you are home and posting! Hope you are finding "routine" again and getting caught up on your rest. When you can tell us more about your trip! How long where you gone?

This cold is finally breaking up and I think I can go about a more normal routine today. I am so thankful for that!

Hugs to all!
