I will have to consider the washables -- a nursing home I worked in used those.

Such a tragedy anytime losing children....but having them in the ice cold water drowsing is especially sad. Prayers for their families.

Happy easter everyone.

My pain is off the charts today...i forgot to put on a pain patch after my bath last night....so level is at a 10 now....but I took meds and pray to feel better in awhile so I can move some.

My yorkies HATE going out in the rain...i will put them out but they won't do their business..they just want to come back in. So i put a potty pad on the bcd porch on rainy days
.
Nellie...I use washable potty pads....they are awesome...as the disposable ones got really expensive. Now I only use the disposable for travel.

Praying for each of you to have a blessed and happy Easter.....

Nellie? I don't take mine out in the rain and I probably couldn't drag them out in the rain..... I do let them out to potty but then again I have my entire back yard chain link fenced and I have a pretty good size back porch....... I have old rugs that are laying on the porch and they will go potty on the rugs........ well usually Scruffy doesn't but the other 3 do......... mine hate getting wet ...... even their feet!

I took the nighttime Tylenol sinus stuff last night and it helped a little bit ..... I had set up to meet someone today in the little town just south of me where my parents live to pick up 2 items that I wanted from the yard sale face book site........ one is a card table that slides out to make a "double" table..... never saw one like that before but I wanted a cheap light weight card table something I could set up like at the Easter egg hunt or for a yard sale at the house...... or when I have BBQ's in the backyard for extra space to set the food....... and this looked really nice....... the other item was an electric keyboard...... I asked Becca if she had been practicing her piano lessons? and she said their keyboard they had was broke so she wasn't practicing.... I saw this one and could get it for $20 and it looked nice so I got it..

The guy selling the stuff was little more than a boy...... and they were late! They were to show at the meeting place at noon...... and at quarter after they called and said they were just leaving and would only be a few minutes.... he put the stuff in the car....... so then I went and had my hair done at the really good hair stylist and he braided it for me..... I went to the local pizza place and got the lunch special and then bought a cheese steak to bring home for my dinner....... I went to the local Food Lion to see if they had the treats the kids get at bedtime..... they didn't! grrrrrrrrrrrrr but I got some beggin littles thinking I'd have the girls put them into plastic eggs and they can hide them on Monday when they are here for the dogs to find them in the yard! LOL

I took the keyboard to the girl's house...... Becca was so excited she wanted to practice right away....... and when I got home and tried to get the card table out of the car I could barely move it! That table must weigh 50 lbs!!!!!!!!!! it's a VERY nice table and well made but also extremely heavy!!!! *sighs* so this isn't going to really help with what I wanted it for..... I'll never be able to carry this around and set it up! good grief!!!!

I came in and took a nap for awhile...... when I checked my porch for mail the filters came for the hot tub so I went ahead and put the new filter in and filled it up..... now it's turned on to heat the water........ it will take awhile..... the water was only 62 degrees and needs to get to 102........ Ladies I put my hand down in the water at 62 degrees it feels freezing...... those poor children on that ferry were in water that was only 50 degrees I can't even imagine! my heart breaks for all those parents losing their children knowing they may have been able to get off the boat if that nitwit captain hadn't told them to stay in their rooms!!!!!

Now that the hot tub is heating and I don't have to worry about the water running over the sides....... I'll probably take another nap......... lots of people were out mowing lawns today it's sunny and 65 here but there is a strong wind blowing and I sure don't want to go out long with my sinus issues!

Well I gotta feed the kids........ maybe I'll check back later........

Even if it is raining, I take my doggies out at least 7 times per day since I don't have a fenced in yard for them and I can't afford extra potty pads. However, I hold an umbrella over them, so they don't get tooooo wet. Cielito is funny in that when it is raining, he prefers to stay under the overhang of the roof. Faith hasn't caught on to that -- at least not yet.

Nellie....so sorry you are having such a hard time. My eldest son has asthma...he had it as an infant and we thought he had outgrown it but he hadn't. He has bad allergies also. Poor guy has a tough time.

Suz...hope you are feeling better today and that you get the rest you wanted to get.

It is rainy and grey and ugly here again today....ho hum. I am just relaxing and doing nothing....it feels good not to pressure myself to do anything. I seem to need a lot of rest these days.

Praying for you all to have a blessed and joyous Easter....
my yorkies are tired of the rain and not getting a walk in.....hopefully tomorrow it will be nicer out and I can get them out for a LONG walk. Willow gets restless if she doesn't walk....

I've had some kind of respiratory problem ever since the end of January. Your mentioning the bending down reminded me of when I bend down to feed or change potty pads, or any of the numerous things I do for my pets I get pain and pressure behind and next to my eyes. I am guessing the sinuses are objecting! Sometimes I get horrible drainage that is brilliant yellow. Also I am having asthma which I haven't had in about 7 years. Enough so that when I get a coughing fit it feels like I can breathe or that I am going to upchuck. I've been to the doctor's office 3 x already, but each time he had too many appts., so I got a PA. However, on Monday I do actually get to see him so I am going to give him the gory details and let him know the cortisone inhaler messed up my voice so much, my chore worker was teasing me about inhaling helium. Since I quit the cortisone inhaler, my voice is returning to normal and tonight at church, I was actually able to sing without sounding like a frog.

What was I doing? well I had the girls from 9 am until 7 pm.......... I cooked the 3 doz eggs Thursday night and then we colored all of them but I swear Abby had more of the dye on her than she got on the eggs!!!!! I actually scrubbed her with Dawn and one of those sponge scrubbies to get it off........ good grief!!!!!

Then they picked up more sticks........... and they went with me to 5 Below store......... then they decorated the Styrofoam egg shapes I painted pink for them........

They watched cartoons........... and went to play with the neighbor girl, Blaire..

My Dad came by to put 3 shelves in my hallway pantry..... I have tons of plastic storage stuff and I need a place to put it!!!! this half of the pantry had no shelves... now it does!

I felt miserable pretty much all day even though I didn't let on to the girls........ my stuffed up head hurt so bad I couldn't bend down or it just throbbed horrible.... I'm breathing thru my mouth I take OTC stuff but my head isn't opening........ I took a hot bath last night with dr teal's hoping it would help and it didn't so much...... ugh!!!!!

I get the girls again on Monday and Tuesday.........and their grandmother is getting the bone marrow transplant on May 7th....... so I'll probably be getting them more then

Saturday...... I plan to sleep!!!!!!

Suz..you are pushing too hard. I pray you don't get down even sicker.

Nellie...your easter plans sound nice.

I know Janet is having family and church going on.

I have no plans right now....today it is raining out and I am dealing with lots of fatigue. I slept a long long time and still feel like I am exhausted. The yorkies are being lazy as I am. We are snuggled under the heated throw.

I love willow trees (thus Willows name) and planted one in my back yard yesterday so the rain is watering it well for me. I have an area that has standing water which is damaging my fence...so the willow tree will LOVE being near that and will grow big and keep my ground dry. At my last house I had a wet area and planted a willow tree and it grew big soooo fast. This one is a big close to my house tho so we shall see if I guessed right in location. I want it close yet not on my house.....It has lots of room to grow yet....

I took my dad to Kroger and the drug store yesterday. He called and wanted to go. Today I am planning to rest and relax all day....and stay warm under the throw.
What are you all up to today?

My family doesn't do Easter meal and each time I say that Mom will call and say I think I'm going to bake a ham and not do anything special but come down and eat.....

I woke up not feeling well...... my head was so stuffed up again and my throat was sore.... I really didn't feel like getting up but the girls were coming........ they got here it was 8:30...... and their Mom said she'd get them at 1......

Becca and I made a "modified" French toast roll up receipe........ using a cherry cream cheese filling........ we each had 3 pieces ( they are slices of bread with crusts removed and rolled up with the filling and browned, then rolled in cinnamon sugar)........ Abby liked hers so well she was the 1st one finished and that NEVER happens!!!!! She's always the last one to finish eating!!! Becca didn't finish hers right away but went back and ate what was left.......

we colored my 6 eggs I cooked...... I had each of us decorate 2...... 1 burst open so it was cut up and added to the dog's dinner tonight.....

We watched a movie and they watched cartoons...... I cat napped off and on..... just so tired...
Their Mom didn't come until almost 5.......... and I told her to leave the 3 dozen eggs with me and I'd cook them tonight for us to color tomorrow.........

I'm to get the girls about 9 tomorrow and not sure when they are leaving....... she is taking her Mom to Hershey tomorrow...... we're to decorate the 3 dozen eggs.....

I've loved having the girls all week (well I didn't have them yesterday) but I am tired......

Brandon sent me a message saying he'd groom the kids on May 7th in the afternoon..... yipeee!

For Easter, most of my local family is getting together in the evening at my oldest daughter's house. I think several are taking their kids to Easter Egg hunts.

My first yorkie Missy used to love shiny things and her bows and would eat them if she could. She was always ok tho but it worried me. If I held her and had on a necklace she loved it as it was shiny. She would try to nibble it.

Lily wears a hairbow a lot but Willows hair is really fine and won't keep it in. Lily and Willow have totally different hair. Willows I keep long as it is soft and silky..and Lily I cut shorter as it is coarse and curly at times. Difference in breed standards I'm sure...Lily is CKC and Willow is AKC.
They are both beautiful to me...I adore them.

Anyway Nellie...I have to use rubber band bows as slumps won;t stay in. I don't let Lily wear one all the time as I am sure it itches and all..so I take it down at least every other day. Usually every night I take it off...but sometimes If I am out of town and busy I leave it in.

My pain level is high today. It has turned colder here and the sun is not out..there is a brisk breeze. I was able to walk 45 minutes yesterday but today I will hopefully at least make it around the block. Maybe I pushed to hard yesterday-not sure. I did some gardening too.

The girls are sleeping on the heated throw. It makes me wonder how we would survive without it.
I am so broke this month and have some bills and things I need but can;'t pay for....not sure what to do. My car needs maintenance as the light is on for it. Plus Willow is due shots the first of next month. I sure do wish the insurance people would send me a check..that would really help me...plus I could pay back my parents.

Today the termite inspector is coming around 2:30. Then I need to run to Petsmart and get some dog food...we are out. They like Royal canine for yorkies now. Hope it is a good one. I was giving it as a treat and they now won;t eat the wellness. Go figure.

Hope you all are staying warm....what rate your Easter plans? I don't have any.....just rest and relax. I do want to go to the base and walk in the woods there this weekend if I am up to it. We shall see. Plus I want to do some yard work.

Hugs,
Sarah

I am a little concerned about Faith. Earlier I caught her chewing on her hair clamp, and took it away and put it back in her hair. Usually it stays in for at least a couple of days. However, when I was about to take her out for her last potty break this evening, it was missing. I can't find it anywhere. She doesn't seem to be in distress, so I am going to watch her. I put a little elasticized hair holder in with a bow instead of another hair clamp.

SO glad you had such a great day Suz. Reading your post made me smile. You are such an awesome friend....I am happy when you are happy.

I have a bad headache today...no fun. I keep thinking it may go away but alas it hasn't so I am resorting to meds. I plan to go sit out in the sunshine awhile and read.....it is a bit chilly but will still be nice I believe.
Then I will walk the yorkies and do some chores.
Will check back in later.

I had the best day today!!!!!!!! I enjoyed having the girls here so much..... their mom dropped them off about 8:30...... and came to get them about 5 pm.......... I gave them choices for breakfast and they picked Pillsbury cinnabons....... LOL and we had pizza pockets for late lunch....... we did a craft project "fuzzoolie" or something like that..... making animals out of these large fuzzy pipe cleaners...... I had bought each of us a kit so we could do them together we just hadn't done them yet..... then we watched Happy Feet 2...... and goodness I got to see Brandon, my groomer......... he looks perfectly fine!!!!!!

Brandon said he kept a small propane heater in the bottom cabinet of the trailer....... then if his furnace didn't work he had a way to heat up the inside of the trailer so he could do the grooming........ well it apparently developed a leak in the hose somehow...... and he wasn't aware of it...... and they think when his cell phone ran it caused a spark that set off the explosion......... I asked if he fixed up the trailer or got a new one? He said he had to have a new one that the other one was too damaged and even had a hole blown thru the roof!! He has scar tissue on the top of his right hand.......... and a place on his forehead he showed me.......... and he said that still hurts on his head..... but otherwise you would not even begin to guess he was so badly burned 2 months ago! I had to give him a big hug...... I was just so happy to see him!!!!! He thanked me again for his donations.......he said with 5 plus weeks that he didn't get to work it really helped..... I'm just so thankful he is ok and now I got to see him....... he said he'll have to get the kids schedule to be groomed but it will probably be mid-May now....

Then after the Chihuahua issue yesterday....... after the girls left I was here and heard the dogs barking and thought what the heck.... I go look out and there is a PUG standing in my yard eating a biscuit I threw out for the squirrels!!!!!!!!!!! LOL I go out and it was Lexis from next door.... so trying to figure out how she got out? I didn't see her Daddy..... I picked her up to take her home....... and she's is a BIG BONED girl! LOL I put her back in the yard and I still didn't see her Mom or Dad so I came home...... I no sooner got back in and the dogs bark and she's back out already!!!!! awwwwwww come on........ so I go out..... oh did I mention it was raining and freezing out?? and carry her back over... while I'm at the front door trying to get them to answer and tell them she's getting out....... her brother Oscar goes walking past HE GOT OUT TOO!!!! well I can't grab both of them so I'm banging on the door and finally their Dad comes out and I hand him Lexis and told him Oscar was out and he put Lexis in the house and then we go find Oscar...... he said they are going under the deck he build last summer and they dug out ......bad dogs!!!!!!!! LOL

So always fun in the neighborhood!

What a great day I had!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow I have the shelter meeting at 3.......... girls again on Thursday and Friday!

ROFL....I "found" a black chichachua the other day too. i knocked on doors to find out where it lived and then tried to take it home but no one was home. So I kept it in my back yard awhile till its parents came home and I took it home. Now that is a coincidence hunh?

I am finally home. It is rainy here today and my pain level is HIGH. I am resting and relaxing today.

Nellie....I loved reading about Faith enjoying nature. Willow LOVES the outdoors...she is interested in everything and if it moves she is fascinated. Lily is a city girl (as my vet calls her) and hates walking on anything but cement. She refers being indoors and cuddled.

I did not even know about the blood moon but it was rainy here yesterday and today so I doubt I could have seen it.

Hope you all are having a great day....the yorkies are resting....they have been sleeping all day. They are worn out from grandkids (laugh out loud)

Suz; WOW! That was sure a 'great' event! But, look at what you put into it! I know; you had fun in every way you helped. And, most important, you helped the homeless doggies and kitties. The other week our local Humane Society put out a call for canned puppy food. As you well know, Spring brings an abundance of puppies. I took a case of the large Pedigree cans of puppy food down. I make it a point to take some canned dog food and cat food each month.

Emily sounds like Lexie, she wants to do things her way, when she wants to do it!
That little dog sounds cute. Someone probably wanted that little dress. Did her 'mommy' say how she came up missing?

Nellie; I didn't even try to see the Blood Moon. We have too many trees and, there were a lot of clouds.

Sarah, what are you up to today? If your like me today, you are busy.

Guess what, SUZ. We woke up to 1/2-1" of SNOW on the grass and cars, etc.. For the most part; the cement and payment was too warm for the snow to stick.

Suz, yesterday, once again, I added a store name to my post. It was rejected! Once I subed the name for the word 'pharmacy' it went through! Isn't that crazy?

Have a good one!

Hugs,
Janet

I was hoping to see the blood moon, but clouds started rolling in for our promised rain about the time the sun was about to set, so no luck at seeing the eclipse!

That little doggy does sound adorable. I'm glad the owner showed up promptly!

Emily STILL doesn't want to go in her crate to eat!!!!!!!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr tonight when she wouldn't go in I just shut the door with her food inside ...... after I walked away she went over and was trying to get in the crate to eat....... but as soon as I walked in the hallway to let her in she left and came in the living room...... she's driving me crazy! tonight she wanted up on my snack table and so did Peanut and they both got up and laid down sleeping while I petted them and then I groomed Emily ( on one side she wouldn't roll over)...... even trimming around her paws which she hates........

what a day it started to be today!!! I had just woke up and let the kids in the backyard... the girls were coming today so I opened the front door and I saw a neighbor walking up my driveway..... she waved and said you have a dog in your yard! I waved and said there are 4 dogs in my yard!!!!!! and laughed..... she said no.. I mean there is another little black dog in your yard! I was what??????????????? I went out and there was a little black and white Chihuahua.. almost looked like my former neighbors dog! but when we went to get close she started to run away..... I said I'll come in and get some food and a leash..... when I went back out they caught her! so I said give her to me and I'd try to find her owner or take her to the shelter to have her checked for a microchip! she didn't have a collar or tag.....

Scared little girl....... but friendly..... seemed older....... so I bought her in and sent off a message to my friends at the shelter...... took some photos of her........... and then went on facebook to that "find Toby in PA" page....... I thought maybe I'd see her picture and if not I'd post that I found her..... but oh my gosh someone posted a photo of her just 2 days ago! There was a phone # and I called but I got answering machine so I left a message I had their dog!

About an hour later I got a call this woman was so excited she was at work and was trying to get off work to come get her dog...... she said her name is Lola and she had been gone since April 5th! more than a week!!!!!!! I had given her some chicken and rice I didn't know when she last ate and didn't want to upset her tummy....... so I gave her directions and it was about 2 hours later she showed up she was almost in tears..... I said they weren't sure it was her in the photo her chest looked black but the dog I had wasn't? She said she was wearing a little black dress in the photo! She couldn't understand why she didn't have her pink collar and rhinestone tag on when I got her....... she brought her pink harness covered in silk flowers and rhinestones...... it was adorable! She kept giving her kisses and said she was still hoping they'd get her back but was so worried something happened to her...... but it was facebook that got her baby home! I was so happy I was able to find her Mommy!! The lady said she was going to take her home to give her a bath and snuggle with her...... awwwwwww

Becca said she wanted me to keep her I said #1 I have 4 dogs now........ #2 she isn't my doggie!! This lady really wanted her doggie back! so it isn't right to keep her......... she has a Mommy already! she said yeah but I really liked her...... well yes but I can't keep her! she had a home!

So the girls Mom came to get them just past 5 pm........ I had them pick up sticks in the yard today........ my Dad came and used his rotortiller to dig up along my house and the strip in front of my front porch........ he also planted my black raspberry bush and my blueberry bush..... and finished cleaning out my iris bed of leaves........ he said he can get 2 rolls of roofing for my shed for $100........

The shelter actually made $1217.19 yesterday at the Easter egg hunt from registrations, photos, and selling bottled water/sodas........ they hadn't counted in what was collected for registrations on paypal...... what a great total for 1 event!!!! and so much fun!!!!

I get the girls again tomorrow for a little bit in the morning......... Thursday and Friday this week......... woo hoo!

oh yeah they are calling for a rain/snow mix tomorrow night! ugh!!!!!!!! I was outside most of the day Sunday and today!

I want to go out and try to see the "blood moon"

Suz, sorry your babes were giving you 'fits' yesterday. That reminded me of Lexie! She gives me a hard time when ever she thinks I am going away. Like today; I was going to the bank and a pharmacy. Even tho hubby was staying home with her, she was still bent out of shape! When I got home, you could tell she still was ticked off at me. I just went about my business; she finally got over it. She knows when she pants that upsets me. She'll do it until I tell her that's enough. She'll stop and give me 'that look' and go on! They know how to work us, don't they.

Sarah, hope you and the girls are home and resting. I wish this week were over, so, I could rest. That's what I'll be doing most of next week.

Nellie, that is so funny about your babes. Eddie used to catch birds. Eddies last summer he and Lexie caught a baby bunny rabbit! It died.

I got some more things to get done on here. Catch you later.

Hugs,
Janet

Faith seems to be a nature lover. She was bird watching today. A robin landed not more than 5 feet away from us and she was looking at it with great curiosity. Later a stellar jay flew from out yard across the street to land on a smallish tree and she watched that also.

Cielito is more into watching for other dogs since he is so afraid of them, or watching for cars that he thinks he can chase. When a car goes by, he lunges toward it, barking and barking, oblivious to the fact that he is going nowhere since I have the leash firmly in hand!

Suz...so sorry your dogs were "bad" this morning. They wanted their mommy to stay home and play with them.
I saw the photo of the pageant on Facebook...looked like so much fun. Loved the bonnets. It looked like it was so much fun....wish we had something like that here.

I am still at youngest sons house but travel home tomorrow. I am going to another town first that has a farmers market with plants to pick up some ferns and hopefully a willow tree. Then homeward bound. Chris flies our to Colorado tomorrow and will be gone 5 weeks...

It was a great weekend with lots of grandkid time for me. I am exhausted and my pain level is up but it was so worth it.
But I am ready for my own home and some peace and quiet.

I started a new spark team after being the only leader on another one that did anything...I emailed them awhile back and asked if they wanted to be leaders and they all said yes and that they would help but NO help came. So I prayed and decided to resign. Then I felt led to simply leave the team which i did. Then I prayed and felt the desire to start a new fibro team that will glorify Jesus Christ as our savior and help us live our best with fibro. Feel free to join....even if you don't have fibro and want to come share with us.....you are welcome.

I promise not to forget our wonderful little yorkie team tho. I love sharing and hearing about your doggies...and love each one of you.
My little girls are snuggled with me in the recliner asleep....they are so adorable. Some man stopped and told me he wanted to just pick them up and kiss them they were so cute. That cracked me up. He was a big guy too....

oh Ladies what a day I had today!!!! It started out horrible....... I was angry at Peanut and Emily!!! the spoiled brats!!!!!!!! Always when I have something to do I guess they figure if they screw around I won't leave the house!!!! My knee had felt pretty good when I got up but then when I was carrying the boys dishes into feed them..... Peanut jumped and hit the side of my knee in the worst possible place and pain just shot thru my leg.......... I was ready to strangle that boy!!!!! THEN......... I got the girls breakfast and was going to put their dishes in their crates and Emily REFUSED to get in her crate to eat........ now any other time she zooms right in..... I had to CHASE HER and CATCH HER to make her go in the crate to eat today!!!!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!

But once I got to the shelter I had a great time with the Easter egg hunt and the Easter Bonnet contest!!!!! we had the most gorgeous weather...... 81 degrees with a breeze ( a little too much at times it kept blowing my bunny ears off)...... just beautiful....I got a little bit of "sun" today so I caught up on my vitamin D.. and all the dogs!! The shelter made a little over $1,000 today with the Easter egg hunt event!! it was amazing!!
I really had a great time petting all the dogs...... my favorite thing to do!!! And can you believe it there was only 1 yorkie there and they didn't bring a bonnet for it!!!!!!!! seriously???? no bonnet!!!!!! arrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! In all 3 categories I had 40 dogs! There were only 4 puppies and 1 didn't show up when I called their number..... There were only 7 small dogs and 1 of them didn't show..... but I had 30 medium/large dogs enter!

Everyone had a great day with their dogs and that was my favorite part..... watching everyone having a great day with their dogs......

I stopped for food on the way home...... the kids and I spent a lot of time outside.... they seemed happy that I was home again! Emily still didn't want to go in her crate for dinner I don't know what's wrong with her!!!!!

Anyway it's still warm and I have windows open and put the screen in the door...... they are calling for Tuesday we're to get rain and the temps are to drop and they said we could even have FROST on Wednesday!!!!!! awwwww come on I want to keep this warm weather!!!
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr hoping it comes back soon!

Glad you all had a good day as well!

Our nights have been cold the last couple of days and the days have been sunny and edging toward hot. It is 68 degrees outside. However, the rain is supposed to return later this evening and stick around for several days.

Some community here in WA state is having landslide threat and a bunch of people have been evacuated to be on the safe side. They have allowed some people to go back to remove some things but they have to leave again before too many hours elapse.

Good evening---
We went to Church; had brunch at "Big Boy". I have been busy deleting from my timeline. There were some things on there that I wanted to keep. Decided I better get them off before I lost it all, [besides my mind] LOL!

I got a notification from DD2's Church. It showed the Sanctuary. Of course it was their Palm Sunday Services. A Church that's as beautiful on the inside as on the outside. Anyway, the procession was led by "Enright" the donkey. Yes, a live donkey! The picture is on my Timeline. I think that is neat!

I did get a few things done here. Just your usual daily chores!

Sarah, Maggie is a beautiful young lady. She's 4, isn't she? And, that Bentley; he looks like all-boy! Be careful driving home!

Suz, the doggies were so pretty in the Easter bonnets! I bet everyone had a good time; including you!

Are you ready for this, Suz? Today it's in the 70's; and, we are to get snow Tuesday! With a low of 30 and the high of 44! If it continues it should be there Wednesday! Sorry!

Nellie, what's the weather up your way? I think we are all being warned! With all the things going on! With the shootings, mudslides, and now that Earthquake in the Solomon Islands. I know you are aware it's in that ring of fire! Scary!!!

I have a very busy week, as I am sure you all do! We have Church Wednesday eve; Thursday eve; Friday eve; three services Easter Sunday and our family dinner! And, with the cleaning and cooking for that; I'll need all the next week to rest up!!!

I will be taking pics. of Lexie. Her new bright red raincoat came the other day; and pics of her in her Easter Outfit!

Till later; have a good evening!

Hugs,
Janet

I haven't been having any issues....... now watch I will!

My knee is still bothering me...... I thought I'd get the hot tub up and running by changing the water and filters and for some reason I'm short one of the filters..... I buy them usually 4 at a time so I have a fresh set to put in and a spare set..... well now I have 1 and not the 2nd one..... it takes 2 different size filters..... so I have it empty and I had to order filters... it will take about a week for them to get here from California....... so I did all that and now still can't use it......

I messed around a little outside....... and I went to the dollar tree to get 3 helium balloons for tomorrow........... then I found out that the label DOES come off the planter's peanut jar! awwwwww man!!!!!! so I went ahead and made another bunny jar out of it like I wanted to do to start with..........

I loaded all the stuff in the car for the Easter egg hunt tomorrow at the shelter and my Easter bonnet contest............ I'll take plenty of pictures!

I still have trouble getting onto spark people at times. Not sure why. And several times when I have written a long email it has been lost somehow.
I am really tired...lots of people...I had to retreat for some quiet time twice....my pain level was going really high. The kids were wide open but grandson is attached at my hip..he adores his nana....and now we are resting and watching dinosaur train (his favorite show)

I am traveling to youngest sons house to spend time with him and granddaughter for awhile. I will be headed home Monday. I am exhausted. But I have one more day to spend with my granddaughter. I missed time with her yesterday being here helping out DIL for grandsons party. It went quite well but they really spent lots of money on it.

Hope you all had a great weekend....

Janet..the petunia is so pretty.

Hugs to all,
Sarah

I had been getting notifications regularly until this week. All of a sudden, I was getting hardly any, and I checked to see if my settings had changed, but they hadn't.

What is weird is that today I am getting duplicate notifications of the same thread, but at different times. It seems to be only on SP that these strange things are happening.

Nellie?

I read this on the email notifications of posts made in your group before.....

"Clicking this link will also keep you subscribed to the discussion. There may also be other replies, but you will not get any more of these notifications until you click on this link."

So maybe this explains your problem you've had......

GOOD MORNING, Girls---
It seems a lot of things are going on with the internet! Across the board it appears quirks appear. Like the problem you, Nellie, had yesterday. And, SP not posting my post yesterday morning. It said I had HTML. After several attempts, in desperation I replaced store names and the name of our Church's Womens out reach with x's, SP posted it! However, I had NO links and/or NO photos! Now, explain to me what happened!

On Fb, I have had pics and/or comments disappear off my timeline. And, I can be on one site, I go to comment, and it switches me to another page!

On regular inbox, I have had [exp.] say, an e-mail from a Saturday and I read it. On sunday that very same e-mail has been deleted off Saturdays mail and put on sundays with a time for sunday. BUT, on the actual e-mail heading it had the original time; which was what it was on Saturday! There was a series of pics from DD1 and her partners commitment. They entirely disappeared off my computer! Nowhere, they are completely deleted!

Now, I am not going to put any ideas in your head; I'll let you draw your own conclusions!

With that; I wish you a Good Day!..........................................

For some reason, I'm not getting emails to let me know when a thread has been commented on all the time. Like today the email for this thread came and when I looked back it had been at least 3 days of posting I hadn't seen. I've gone and made sure my settings are correct, and that is not the problem!

Suz---If you read my post from earlier this morning; where I put the x's is the only things I deleted. As you can see, I have no link or photo in that post! So, I don't know what was going on.

A guy that goes to our Church posted on Fb said this morning, that he was trying to comment on one of his friends posts, it switched him to anothers post!

Even our TV went off for awhile. Microsoft warned me they found suspicious entry on my acct.. Evidently someone was either trying to hack or using my password to try to get in. So, we had to change all that!

The other night Fb wanted to update my pertection. Till we got done, I had been on there almost an hour. This was late in the evening.

All I'm saying is be careful. Like my Status says..................

Well I didn't post yesterday ( Janet not sure what you mean you couldn't type the names of the stores? I type in Petsmart and stuff all the time? HTML usually refers to copying a link and inserting it with pictures? but I've copied and pasted web addresses before too)

anyway, my parents showed up to bring back the dog crate, she is convinced that Cody will hurt his paw trying to get out of the crate because he isn't happy in it...... ok whatever I'm done arguing with her...... Dad said he "forgot" what my shed looked like and wanted to measure to see what it would take to put a new roof on it........ OH MY GOSH I went with him to look at the back to measure and I didn't realize how horrible the shingles are on the back!!! The shingles are all curled up!! no wonder it's leaked! The shingles from the front look ok...... Dad said for him to do it he'd have to build a temp scaffold because he can't work on a ladder........ I really don't think it's a good idea for him to do this he isn't good on ladders and fell twice now...... he was going to Lowe's to see what it would cost for tar paper and shingles..... It also needs painted............

I got my solar motion detection flood light at Walmart....... it's charged and ready to be put on this end of the shed.......... it will light up towards the driveway and the back yard where I don't have any light...... Dad said he'll come and put that up ........ oh boy!

I got email from the woman that put me in charge of the Easter bonnet contest that they didn't have the stuff to rope off my area for the contest so now I need either tape or rope and stakes or something to do it myself...... for pete's sake!!!!!! I've had to do everything on my own!!!!!! This has cost me a fortune!! I made 4 Easter baskets up and bought 6 gift cards! yesterday though instead of "buying" dowel rods for the signs I cut off sticks from branches that fell in the yard and spray painted them for the signs......... I also printed prize "ribbons" on the computer and cut them out instead of going to buy them........

Did you like the new yard spinner? It's so mesmerizing when it's spinning.... and where I have it I can see it from sitting in my living room........ I just wish it would spin more! It really takes a strong wind to move it yet you just touch it and it turns freely...... the colored one turns very easy and I love the colors on it..... but I can only see it from the kitchen and bathroom or when I'm outside..

I spoke to Sammy's mom yesterday and pointed out where the neighbor boys are damaging their fence by kicking their soccer balls into it.......... she hadn't noticed and she said that makes her angry and she was going to talk to their mother........ I told her good luck cause I tried that already and they haven't stopped doing it yet! She said if they don't stop it she will make them pay to repair her fence...... she said she's getting tired of the boys throwing trash in the yard...... they really are unruly boys! I think their Mom is just overwhelmed trying to control them.......... I suggested they put a tarp up in the bushes to catch their ball and even offered them a tarp and they said they had one to use but they still haven't put it up...... oh well I tried.....

My knee is still bothering me....... not quite as much....... I'm going to try to empty the hot tub today so I can get it filled with clean water and can get in it........ they are calling for chances of rain though....... Katie said she needs me to watch the girls probably about 3 days next week could be more........ I'm going to get the girls to help me pick up sticks in the yard and maybe rake the other flower bed....... they can help me get ready to mow the yard........

ok so I'm done for now........ gotta get the kids their breakfast!

give your babies a kiss from me.........

UPDATE!!!!

Where you see the "X's" I had to delete the words I had put in. The two stores I and everyone else had posted before. The last one where I have put in the letters for the ladies group, I have done before.

However, I received notice that for me to delete my "html". Only after I deleted those three things, did it go through! It's a wonder I didn't have to delete "EASTER".

Sorry about my MIA yesterday. I spent a lot of time with Lexie. Trimming her, etc.. I was going to bathe her also; but, just freshened her up. I talked with my ex-hairdresser; who was the breeder I got Smidgen and dogs in the past. She cautioned me to wait until the weather was more stable. Because of her senior age, need to be cautious to keep her well. That if she got ill it may not go well with her. I sure want to keep her with us as long as possible! As she will be 11 in July.

I just heard thunder to our north. It is to be one of those days. Oh well, I can get some more pre-Easter things done. I have my menu made out. I wanted to make some chocolate crosses' for on top of the cupcakes, but, I forget where I put the molds. So, unless I get to "xxx-xxxx" and get more, I'll have to come up with other ideas. It will all work out.

Oh, and yes; Lexie's red lady-bug raincoat arrived yesterday. She looks so cute in it. It's not the usual flimsy coat like you usually see at "xx-xxxx" and such. It's the shiny red with hood attached. And, it is lined with soft flannet with yes, lady bugs on it. On the back on the outside it has a lady-bug on both sides. It cost, but, I have seen more expensive ones. And, yes, it came from xxxxxxxxx

I still have to figure out what I will wear for Easter yet. I'll do that next week
Sunday is the last day of our Silent Auction at Church. The lady's group is having it, with the proceeds going to help Youth to go to camp this summer. I have bids on three different articles. One is a purse one of my Sisters have made. She does a superior job. My supply of handmade articles are used up. Because right now I am doing those canvas pictures

Better close; I have yaked enough for yesterday and, today.

You all have a great day, and, I'll be back later.

Hugs,
Janet

Wow Suz....you had a busy day. Sounds like the vet did a thorough exam. Willow is coming due for her shots in May. She has to spend the day at the vets tho as she is so small and she had a reaction once and almost died.....I bet my vet bill will be around $300 as I also get their heart worm meds and flea treatment.
not sure where the money will come from for them....but I will figure it out somehow. I am barely paying my bills these days....but I am not worrying...I know God will provide and as long as I am able to pay bills I am happy. I don't need any extras. But something always seems to come up that requires money.

I am at eldest sons house now....gonna babysit for DIL to shop and get all the stuff she needs to his birthday party on Saturday. They are renting a jumpy house with slides for all the kids to play on.

Today was busy for me...I had to pack...load the car..then walk the yorkies. Then I took mom to her dental appointment...then home to pick up the yorkies and drove to Atlanta. Then when I got here I walked the yorkies again....and have been with grandson all evening. I am tired and going to take a bath soon.

Lily is still doing really well. She is as normal as ever although I do notice she is much more hesitant about some things. She is not as trusting with people as she was...she is afraid of many things now. But I do my best to keep her feeling happy and secure.
They are in on the bed in the room where I stay as they got quite bombarded with kids running around and need some quiet time.

Glad you had nice weather Suz. It was high 70's here but chilly at night. Sunshine felt so good today. I can't wait till next week when I am home and able to sit out in the sun. The doctor told me my vitamin D level was low...I knew it was....I need a lot of sunshine to feel my best. Gotta work on my tan so I don't burn in Florida. We go in the middle of May. Can't wait.

Ok....check in when you can......and I will do the same....gonna be busy weekend but a good one celebrating Bentleys 2nd birthday.

Sarah? I look my aleve this morning, sprayed with ice hot spray, and was using my cane!

It was one of those days I dreamed about all winter..... sunny and in the 60's today...... after my knee loosened up I used my rake to rake the leaves out of the flower bed off the back porch and put them in a trash can, I have a can full and some I couldn't get in.....

I had waited and watched Peanut to get his poo to take to the Vet today and he didn't go potty...... so of course my sister started yapping to me on facebook and when I finally got away from her and went to the kitchen to let them out "someone" went on the kitchen floor.... I know it wasn't Scruff..... and Em went after I let them out...... so it was either Peanut or Tootsie...... Tootsie has had diarrehea so I'm assuming it was Peanut and I took it with him to the Vet!

Vet almost got bit! She asked how he's been and he's fine..... so we went over a few things and she asked me to put him on the table...... so I did! She went to reach for him and he growled once and snapped at her and almost got her!!!!!! OMG!!! He would not let her touch him he kept growling... and not a "nice" growl........ so she said to turn him around and she'd get him from the back.... and for me to back away from the table then....... so I did and she called another Vet tech in to help hold him for his exam and shots....... and she trimmed his toenails....... I said I don't know what's wrong with him? he's friendly to everyone! She said well they have a "protective bubble" and he felt he had to protect me...... so when I handed him over he was ok....... His teeth, eyes and ears are perfect! She said his heart and lungs sound perfect! They took blood for heartworm test but said she doesn't feel he has any..... and gave him his booster shots...... he's lost 1 pound since last year and she was happy he's 10.2 pounds....... she said she'd like to see him lose another half pound.....
$151.00

On the way home I took him to Petsmart and got him one of his favorite airkong balls .... the tennis balls that squeak! He loves those...... and I got him a new harness....... I rarely get to take him in stores ( he wants to mark EVERYTHING)...... today he was out of pee so while he lifted his leg he wasn't doing anything......... he was happy to spend time with Mommy and to get a new ball!

I made leftovers........ fed the kids...... they ran around outside....... and now they are all sleeping....

I'm going to go lay on the recliner with them with the heating pad for awhile....

Hi All---
It's been a productive day, believe it or not! I got quite a bit accomplished, believe it or not! DD2 has been my inspiration. I realized that on days when I feel half way well; I more than likely feel I'll just let some chores go, because in my mind I believe I'll do them later. But, we all know how that goes! We just never seem to get around to doing them!

So, DD2's home always looks nice, and, she works full-time and has outside the home things to do. I once lived that same type of life. so, I asked her how she did it. She told me, and, that's how I have been doing it. So far, so good. I realize sometime I'm not going to be able to 'pull' it off; when that happens I'll just start up again when I can.

You all have a Blessed evening and night.

Hugs,
Janet.

I had to run around today to get the rest of the stuff to finish the Easter baskets for the Easter bonnet prizes........ I didn't want to my knee is hurting enough that I'm wearing my knee brace again but it isn't helping........ until I got thru the check out at Walmart I could barely put weight on my left leg I was leaning on the shopping cart and I had to get home yet........

I have no idea how I managed to get everything out of the car but I did....... and I put the baskets together...... I need to find ribbon to tie shut 2 baskets and make a bow of sorts..... not my strong point......... but they are done!!!!!

I ate some chicken I got at walmart for dinner........ and while I watched Anderson Cooper I had some Breyer's vanilla ice cream.....

I'm tired and my knee hurts....... I'm going to take my night time pain stuff and go to bed.....

I have Peanut to take to the Vet tomorrow....... oh boy......... I dread it!

I took my mom to our doctor today. She too Janet can not get the doctors to do anything. Its like ok..you are 88 so go die. We aren't gonna do anything for you. It makes me SICK! They just want to dispose of elderly. People are so heartless these days.

Anyway..I had a hugely busy day today...didn't get home till around 8pm so I am exhausted. Pain level is up. I just wanted to drop in and say hello to you all....

Good Evening, Girls

I had my eye appt. at noon today. She had decided against the eye surgery. However, even though I don't need a change in lens; I could always opt. to get them with added prisms in the right one. At present there are some, but, I might need more. No way to know if that will even help my double vision. It may, or, may not. If not, that wouldn't be very cost-effective! Otherwise, I guess I will just have to deal with I really have problems at times. One line of vision [rt. eye] will be one place; and, my vision [lft. eye] will be lower and to the left of rt. eye. Kinda hard to explain. But, aside from that, there is nothing to be done! Mood lifting, isn't it?

She found a couple of more eye lashes on rt. eye curled up and resting on that eye. She pulled them out. Of course, they will grow back in. And, if I felt I had another on to come back in, it may be a month, give or take a few weeks. At $40 a visit! Can you imagine! And, my eyedrops; one kind I put one drop in both eyes morning and night. For dry eyes, 3-4 x's a day!

By then, I was out of the mood to go shopping. I'm not much of a shopper anyway.

We ate lunch at "China Wok". I didn't eat much. But, till we got home I had the worst stomach ache! It's better now. I went the last two days problem free!

I am in a really good mood, can't you tell? That was my venting. The last couple years when I go to a doctor or specialist, I don't seem to get much help from any of them. I tell them my concerns and they are just 'brushed' off. But to quote a lot of people, "You look so good". Sarah knows exactly what I'm talking about!

Enough about me; how are you gals spending your evening?..................

The main projects I have today are harvesting the mustard greens and freezing them for my son Jason, and taping down the phone line for my Lifeline machine. I'm hoping maybe to fit in cat toenail clipping.

Hi All---The only ones I have unfriended have been DD1's first hubby and her partner. I decided to let go of the past!

It is so beautiful, sunny day today. It's still cool, is to get in mid 60's today. Thursday it's to be in 70's with sun! WooHoo!

I have an eye appt. today. I guess she will tell me if she thinks the surgery for my 'crossed' eye will help. I've always had it; it's just like anything else; as we get older [and better[ LOL! things seem to go south.

I have IBS, this I know! I have had it for a good portion of my life. It comes and goes. I might go for a long time and be okay; then I might have it for a good while. At first they believed I had an ulcer. But, over time they came to the conclusion it was IBS. And, that diagnosis I believe.

I have gotten the living room and foyer done for the week. I took care of things that doesn't belong in there; dusted; and then sweeper.

Now tomorrow I will do some deeper sorting out like maybe a couple drawers.

Must go; you all have a great day. Catch up with you later!

I unfriended one of Jesses brothers after I found out he was tricking young women into living with him...he was on a dating site as someone other than himself....plus he was married. After I found out all this I unfriended him...

I do NOT think Facebook is an appropriate place to use foul language....many kids are on Facebook and subject to the language there. In fact...there is entirely too much foul language on tv too.

Back when there was more to MySpace than celebrity barf, I unfriended the boyfriend of my youngest daughter since too many of his friends had obnoxiously foul language posts. Later I told him it wasn't him personally, but I couldn't take that garbage daily. Though actually it was an OK decision since he kept ducking out of marriage with her. She is now engaged to a really nice guy.

On FaceBook, I did end up blocking the friend of a friend since she needed her mouth washed out. She is now engaged to the good friend of some of my kids. I feel sorry for him!

oh Janet? I wanted to address a question you had about close friends or relatives on facebook.

My Mom, sister, brother...... are on facebook....... I have cousins on facebook........ and nieces and nephews.........

I "unfriended" a couple people because of their language and totally inappropriate comments.......... my brother's son, Jay, due to his language.... it was horrible! I unfriended my Uncle because of his inappropriate comments....... he was having his own pitty party about whoa is me...... no one ever comes to visit....... no one ever helps me..... and that's a bunch of stuff!!! I have bought and delivered hundreds of dollars of groceries to him and never took a dime! I made him food and delivered and never took a dime....... I babysit his dog, Skipper... picking him up to bring him here and taking him back when he's been in the hospital......... and that's about 20 miles each way and sometimes at night on back roads...... a long time ago he offered to let me use his pool and I'd take my nephew's step kids to swim..... I'd take him food each time and we all took our own drinks so we didn't ask him for anything....... then he started complaining about us only coming to use his pool and he was the one that had to clean the pool and get the chemicals and so forth........ well I never went back to the pool after that! But he was complaining about this stuff on facebook!!!!! so I unfriended him..........

Robin was a friend of mine for many years...... met him thru another friend of mine....... he visited me once at my home and his 2 heathen boys tried to destroy my house and were going thru drawers in my bedroom!!!!! He also used inappropriate language and he'd make comments about my dogs and me posting photos of dogs that need homes......so I unfriended him.......

I know my friend Vicki that lives in Virginia Beach uses really inappropriate language....... I try to catch the post and delete them before people read them........ I just can't bring myself to unfriend her she has some serious health issues and suffers from some mental health issues...... she takes lots and lots of medications...... it would really break her heart if I unfriended her........ she has a good heart and she is passionate about animals......

So I understand Janet what you are saying........ I guess this is part of being on "social media" ..... it's got good and bad sides to it like everything else...... it's nice to keep in touch with friends and family but then you learn about some things you'd rather not know......

Suz...it is scary being at home alone at night. I have an alarms system with monitoring which gives me great peace of mind...I know that if someone tries to break in the alarm will alert me and I can then get to my gun. My biggest fear is being asleep and having someone standing over me when I wake up....it is just too late to do much then.
I have slept really well since getting the alarm system.

It is pouring down rain still. I have a bummer headache...I am just relaxing. Just wanted to stop in and say hello!

I haven't heard anything from Brandon or splish n splash.... he was supposed to return to work but was going to do a limited schedule until he felt he could do more... the doctors were reluctant to let him go back because the skin is so fragile yet and they said he could not get scratched or bitten by a dog....... he was to wear a special mask and gloves for protection... but that was all I've heard.....

ok..... so I came on facebook this morning and one of my neighbors posts this.......
Hey. Just wanted to give you a heads up. Someone tried to break in to Katey and Jeff's house last night while he was at work and she was home with the kids. Their dog scared the intruder away and the cops came out. The police told her there have been a rash of break-ins along the highline lately and that she needs to be on her guard. The kids slept through it and she doesn't want them to know and be scared so please don't mention it to them. I just wanted you to be aware of the situation.Thank God they have a big ol' boxer. It happened around 11:30 The burglar tried coming in the window by the woods. Just be sure to be alert and keep all your doors and windows locked.

OMG!!!!!! that's only 3 houses away from mine!!!!!! I would still have been up when it happened...... but I'd have had all the blinds closed...... I was in my living room which is in the front of the house watching tv........ but I would have been letting the kids in and out........until I went to bed about 1 am........... they'd have fun trying to open any of my windows cause they don't open...... I'm going to need a bigger dog!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually I told her I may go ahead and get some motion lights put up......... and I'm glad I don't have bushes near the house for them to hide......... my dogs may or may not bark? who knows? but if they heard someone / something ? making noise around the outside of the house they'd probably all bark........ I didn't hear the police last night so they must not have used their lights and sirens......... I told her great now I'm afraid!!!!!!!!

I live in one of the more safer areas of town......... but it is on a quiet dead end street...... and the street ends with a large growth covered hill where the railroad track runs across the top of the hill.......... they call it the "high line".......... Katie lives in the first house next to the railroad on my side of the street........ anyway......... if you keep things well lighted they are less likely to hang around........ I keep my car locked........ I've heard if you hear something you should push the button for your car alarm and that will scare burglars off......

Anyway, now I'm going to be afraid at night............ wonder if I should adopt a German Shepherd or a pit bull??? hmmmmm

Wow I am soooooooo glad I came home last night...today it is pouring down rain and we are having thunderstorms. Not good. Poor Lily is so afraid of storms...she is hiding somewhere.
I slept a long time today. I was exhausted. So glad to be home...
so are the yorkies....they have been snoozing right along with me.

Suz...you sure did push hard yesterday...i bet you were really tired. How is Brandon doing these days? You haven't mentioned him lately.

Janet..sorry your tummy hurt....sounds like you may have an ulcer. Or IBS which goes along with fibro in many cases....

Hope you all have a great day!

ME??? I'm exhausted!

It was sunny today but just a bit chilly and a mild breeze........ but I took my tractor out of the shed and the push mower...... I put the snowblower away...... put the push mower and tractor back in the shed....... I picked up some sticks....... took out the trash and recycling..... I swept the porches....... cleaned and filled the water dish for the back porch for the dogs when they are outside..........

THEN I gave all the dogs baths........... and then I groomed Mr. Peanut, Tootsie and Emily....... until I got Emily done (she is HORRIBLE to groom) I was too tired to fight Scruffy to get him groomed....... and they still need toenails cut I don't do that........

I did laundry to wash the wet towels.........

So anyway that takes up almost my entire day!!! My Mom called......... Dad started a fire to burn stuff in a field next to their house .... he does it all the time...... but he went back in the house and let it burn....... well the whole field started to burn and someone driving on the interstate called the fire dept to report a fire ......... and about that time a neighbor came over and knocked on their door to tell Dad he better get back outside that the field was burning...... it isn't their field...... the fire dept showed up and put it out..... good grief!!!!!!! Mom said Dad was really upset...... well I guess so! it could have gotten really out of control and burned someone's house down!!!!!!!! the man that owns the field plants corn and he won't be planting for a little while yet but I'm sure he isn't going to be happy with Dad setting the field on fire! He never should have gone inside and let the fire unattended!!!!!!

Mom said she is bringing my crate back she's "afraid" to put the puppy in it because he gets upset and tries to get out and sticks his feet out and she's afraid he'll get hurt....... oh good grief!!!!!!! She was upset with him today because he tore up a puppy pad and was chewing on the plastic and she was afraid he'd get a piece caught in his throat...... and when she tried to get it from him he just ran all around the house from her...........ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! puppies!!!

But anyway it was another day I got some stuff accomplished...... I'll try to trim Scruffy tomorrow......... I don't know when my groomer is planning to come back........ Peanut has his Vet appointment on Wednesday for his check up and to update any shots......

Sarah I hope by this time you are home safe with the girls........... please get some rest!

Be careful, Sarah! It's hard to travel when you don't feel well, I well know. But, you do need a full day of rest tomorrow! BUT, be very careful!

Suz, what you up to today? I don't remember if you have any fund-raisers today or not. You are so busy!

Nellie, has that little guy interrupted your sleep or naps yet?

Do any of you gals have a close relative that's on Fb? My two older GC have such 'potty-mouths' that I am glad that they have a different last name. Sometimes it just astounches me what they say! If they weren't my GC I'd probably do something about it!

The sun is still shining so pretty. However, this eve and tomorrow it is to rain; as well as several other days this week.

When we ate at KFC they were still preparing their grilled chicken. It would be another 15 or so. So, I got the original. As I suspected, I got a gut ache; usual. But, every time I think maybe this one time, I won't! But, I did! Oh well!

'Talk' to you all later.

Hugs,
Janet

I will check back tomorrow...so have a great evening and night....

Hey there---
Since our Church Services started an hour later, we still got up at 5 a.m.. So, I could really take it nice and slow getting ready. There was 5 baptisms this morning. Then we went out for brunch.

I think I got too much sleep, as I feel groggy. I either get to much sleep or not enough! What can I say? Such is life!

As usual, Lexie is here at my feet on the recliner and hubby in the bedroom watching TV.
Celeste and Emma is to get back today.

The sun is out, but, it is still cool. Could be colder, though!

I think I'm going to get off here and take a nap.

Catch you all later!
Hugs,
Janet

It is rainy here today. I am not feeling very well....fell asleep all morning in the recliner....
just really tired. We take Madi home this evening. I hate that. I guess I will drive home tomorrow as I really don't feel up to it today.
The yorkies are snuggled in beside me and we have the heated throw on...they sure do love it.

Glad you got some things accomplished Suz. I have so much to do when I get home plus a crazy busy week next week....I get overwhelmed just thinking about it. One day at a time MUST be my focus to get through all that is coming up.

The dog bed sounds cute...glad Tootsie likes it.

Gotta get up and move..I am so stiff....
bye for now!

So good to hear you're having fun with your family Sarah! after the scare you had with Lily it's good for you to be able to enjoy yourself ......

I actually got a few things accomplished today........ I put new batteries in some of my solar lights that weren't working so they are working now......... I organized my one pantry that has spare sheets/blankets/pocketbooks in it........ did you see that 1 tip I shared on facebook? they folder their sheets and put them inside the pillow case? well I did that today..... not as neat as their photo but much neater than it was! I also straightened up my spare bedroom..... and trimmed some fur off Peanut...... I think I'll give them baths again...... I still don't know when they are going to get groomed again :(

I also did a couple loads of laundry..... washed up some of the blankets....... ones I keep on the couch for the dogs and my recliner......... they get "dog smelly"......... I got Tootsie her own little adorable doggie bed that she can snuggle in for her nest on the couch...... she wouldn't go near it!!!! I had to laugh that Scruffy managed to stuff his self in this little bed on the couch!!!!!!!! it's WAY too small for him!!!!!!! finally after they had dinner......... and Tootsie kept walking around trying to decide where she was going to lay down she climbed up and got in her cute little bed....... It's blue...... and it's a "dog" .... the front has a dog head with floppy ears and it has 4 legs and a tail............ I got it on Ebay for her it was only $8.98 it says it has a squeaker in it but I don't know where it was I didn't squeak it..... LOL

So while nothing huge or life changing....... I did get some things done! I'll take it!

Getting really cold again here overnight...... down near freezing again...... I just want it to stay warm!!!!!!!! I need to be able to go work in the yard to get it cleaned up........ and my flower beds cleaned up.........

Anyway, I kept busy most of the day.........

Thanks Suz for worrying about me. I am kinda worried too. I have really pushed it. Right now Madi is watching some tv so I can rest. I am really tired today....
Chris is rubbing her head and petting her...so sweet. I used to do that to him when he was little. I love head rubs.

The yorkies enjoyed their walk a bit ago...it is so pretty here. Sun is shining and it is in the 70's.

I laughed hard at the Winston virus. So cute.

Gotta run...

oh Nellie! I had to laugh when I read your post!!!!! sweet Faith and the phone lines brought back such adorable memories for me!

I was on my computer one night and went out to fix dinner....... when I came back in the room later my computer wouldn't connect to the internet...... I thought maybe the system was down, which it did a lot then..... I waited awhile and nothing.... so I decided to call and report my service was down...... the service tech that answered said they weren't having any problems with their service....... and decided to have me run some checks on my computer...... he had me do this and check that........ I had to type in stuff and read what it said..... I checked the modem....... he sent out "pings"...... we hit reset....... all kinds of stuff..... and nothing....... after over an hour he said can you plug and unplug the phone line to your computer? I said well I guess so....... so I said I'd get cut off and he said to call him back..... I got down on all 4's crawling around trying to reach the phone cord....... and found the cord chewed in half!!!!!!!!!!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!!!

I called the tech back and told him I found the problem...... my computer had a "Winston virus"!!!!!!!!! He said Winston virus??? I've never heard of that?? I said well my little dog Winston chewed thru the phone line to the computer...... he laughed!! I said I am so sorry I wasted all your time! He was still laughing and said no problem he said he was going to remember my story the next time he got a call like mine and see if they have the "Winston virus" too! LOL oh my beautiful Winston how your Mommy still misses you..........

It is 46 here today and so so windy but the new wind spinner isn't spinning!!! The colored one is spinning and looks beautiful but for some reason the new one isn't........ grrrrrrrrrr I don't feel like going out but there is sooooooo much I need to clean up the house..... ugh! I hate cleaning but I like the end result..........

Sarah you may want to take it easy I know you don't get the grandchildren that much and are trying to cram everything all into 1 visit but I'm worried about your health.......

Well I better get around and "do" something....... clean up things at least....... LOL

Suz

Oh the joys of chewing doggies...ha. Glad you were able to get the cable replaced tho.

The yorkies are doing well here....but my sons back yard has lots of ticks...I found 2 on me...so I am freaked out. The yorkies are treated tho....but were due a dose April 1st. So far none on them.

We still have granddaughter...she is ours till tomorrow. I am beyond tired. Too much pushing...not enough relaxation or rest although I do sleep well here.
I am just not used to going going going.

I hate to start out next week which is going to be crazy busy being tired.....I am going to try to take several rest breaks today.

So what are you all up to today.? I am going out to play with Madi.....
Hugs,
Sarah

Even though I usually do my shopping on Saturday,I went today since I had to get a new phone cord for my Lifeline machine. It was damaged yesterday -- and I strongly suspect a little doggie named Faith. Today when I came back, my other phones were disconnected also, but at least they weren't broken. So now I am hiding the connection behind some things so it won't be so tempting while I am out of the house.

Hi guys! I am in Atlanta at a place called Everland which is a kiddie playland. I met my DIL here and she now has her son back so I can get some rest. They are all playing and having fun while I am on a bench! My pain level is high..took meds so hope they help! The yorkies are at youngest son Chris's house...we will go home in a bit! I enjoyed keeping my grandson but I sure am worn out!
It is rainy here today! I'm looking forward to a quiet evening with Chris and Madi!
I found 2 ticks on me from being out in the woods. The yorkies are treated but were due a new dose the 1st...I will do it Monday when I go home for the week!

What r u all up to this weekend!

I play my radio softly as I fall asleep. With each time I get up to take medicine, I switch it to tapes of the Bible, or a Christian CD. The baby has not kept me awake since I fall asleep pretty well. The doggies occasionally cock their heads when they hear the new little voice.

How's the weather where you all are? It has been grey' rainy here all day with some thunder. Then, about 4-p.m. we had a little sun. When it gets night time we are to have bad weather again.

The date has been set for our family's Easter Dinner. It will be on Easter Sunday. It was 'up in the air' as to if it would be Saturday or Sunday. Come to find out DGD3 has a two-hour choir practice on Saturday for their Church's Easter Sunday Service. We are also having three services that day. Since hubby is head usher he will have charge of all three services. So, till they get done and make the 1-1/2 hr. trip over here; hard to tell what time we'll eat. Thank goodness we don't have a BIG meal that day. We will have ham sandwiches; mashed potatoes and gravy; baked beans; green beans and relishes and cake. So, some can be made in advance.

Now is the time for me to go back to WW. From last Thanksgiving to now I gained 5#. I still have 30# to lose. And, with summer coming it's time to get back on the wagon! Besides, in June is hubbys 60th alumni get-together! Gosh, he's old! LOL! I'm glad I am not that old!

Lexie has had a 'laid-back' day, just like her mama! Who feels like working around the house when it's so gloomy outside and hard to see where you have cleaned!

Sarah, what's up? Have you rested up after playing yesterday with the Grandbabes? Suz, have you gotten all your energy back? Nellie, does that baby's crying keep you awake? How does your 'furry-ones' responding to the noises of a baby?

I think I'll turn in early tonight; since we are to get some strong winds and storms tonight.

Hugs,
Janet

Hi guys.
I am at youngest sons house with my two grandkids. I was exhausted yesterday after chasing after the 2 year old all day. Whew. It is nice here today so we are going to let them play outdoors more....
The yorkies are doing great...I walked them several times yesterday plus they were outside with us most of the day.
I am really tired....grandkids are great but keeping them 24-7 is tough on us old folks. Bentley is still asleep....I can't believe it.

Suz..sounds like you had some fun days....

Nellie...that is neat about Eric weighing what you did at birth now....

Janet..I understand how frustrating fibro is....you just never have a normal life after getting it...it controls everything you do as you don't ever really feel good any more.

OK..gotta go chase kids....

I find it interesting at Faith and the things that bother her are similar yet different than the issues Emily and Tootsie have. Poor Tootsie is startled but not really upset by lots of sounds... the snap of her harness or collar..... the sound when you give her kisses on her head (she is slowly coming around on this one and doesn't jump every time)..... the roof creaking (ok I give her credit on that one sometimes it bothers me too! LOL ) Emily doesn't seem to mind sounds like that but she still won't give me kisses but she will kiss Peanut & Scruffy and in kissing Scruffy this past week she had her whole nose in his mouth! LOL She still won't go to anyone but me....... but will tolerate someone else petting her.......

It was a beautiful day here today....... cloudy at times but then sun would come out and it was WARM not hot but warm! I really would have liked to taken the dogs for walks.... but I was still upset over this lab bill, I had a phone message from my doctor's office while I was out yesterday that I needed to bring the form to their office to have them fill it out and then submit it...... what form????? I don't have any forms??? anyway I couldn't sleep last night and at 3 am I was on the phone to Mailhandlers about this bill...... She said that the doctor's office had to fill out a new lab request with different coding on it .... send it to the lab and the lab has to resubmit the bill........ anyway I ended up taking some like Tylenol pm to get to sleep it was 4 am! I didn't get up until 1 pm today then....... I called that doctor's office to tell them what they have to do but again I get an answering machine so I left a message. BUT other than that it was grocery day!

I HAD to get things from the store....... so I went to Weis market and spent $130 for my monthly groceries..... I went to the liquor store to get more marsala wine to make more chicken marsala.... went to the butcher shop for the ground sirloin on sale and a little turkey sausage..... I went to petsmart to get other toys etc for the Easter basket prizes and the gift cards.... I stopped at Panana bread to get my free strawberry smoothie and a pecan braid ( I love those)....

I came home and put a TV dinner in the oven while I put groceries away and fed the kids.... I didn't get to eat until after 8 pm...... so no walk :(

I heard about the shooting at Fort Hood when I got home I had CNN on TV....... what a shame.... so much awful news ....... and not one sign of that airplane!!! Still people missing in the Washington mudslide I can't imagine trying to dig thru all that mud to find anything! I watched the special they had on CNN... so awful! The earthquakes and now this shooting.......

I was really tired from my shopping trip so I laid on the recliner with the kids for awhile.... they love being with me on the recliner and having their tummies rubbed.... LOL well all except Tootsie she never joins us.........

Hoping we have some nice weather and I can take them for walks this week.......

oh I was able to get a pack of those "bulls eye" puppy pads..... see if that helps because they were starting to pee every place BUT the puppy pads! ugh!!!!!!

Suz

it is driving me nuts watching these reports on this plane and hearing them say " DEB ree" for debris ........ arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

Yep, yesterday, Eric weighed in at 5 1/2 lb. I find it faintly amusing that the due date was April 1 and he weighed in at what I weighed at birth. They felt he was doing well enough that they circumcised him, so he is a little extra fussy today.

Faith still gets somewhat upset when I cycle, but she is in the bathroom so she can't nip me. She does seem to be calming down sooner as long as I don't have music on. She doesn't mind the music that plays on my radio in the bedroom, but if music is playing in the living room, she equates it with the beeping alarms that she also has conniptions about.

Isn't it horrible about the shooting at Fort Hood? They had said several days ago that someone had threatened to do a shooting, somewhere!

Sarah, those little ones are sure adorable! Takes me back to days of yore! My youngest will be 10 in May! she's so grown up! So, enjoy while you may! How are your little girls tolerating all this?

Suz, what have you been up to today? Your ear any better? Every once in awhile mine get sore after decades ago.. Sometimes I think mine is from when I have the backs on a little to tight, and, then leave them on all night, where in turning my head from side to side it 'pinches' them.

Nellie, how is that baby doing? Growing like a weed. How is your doggie doing with you doing your cycle?

We are to get rain today, tomorrow and Friday. The dreariness is very depressing. Give me some warm sunny days!

Hugs,
Janet

Awww, Suz, such is life! If it's not one thing, it's another, isn't it? Of course, we all know what dreaded day Monday is!

Yesterday [Tuesday] I forced myself to go out. Went to Richmond. I needed to get cartiages for my printer. I also got a pack of printer paper.

I looked at the babe clothes. They had scads and scads of xs and xxs. Not many med.. I did get Lexie a sundress. It fits her really well. I want to get her a raincoat and Elizabethan coller for when she gets her allergies before the meds 'kick' in.

Oh, girls have you checked out the 'eggs' at "Wal-Mart"? They are plastic, they come in an egg crate and they have the rough white 'shell'. They look real, there is 12 to a crate. In fact, Larry cooks at the Church's Mens' Breakfast the first Saturday of the month. He fixes the scrambled eggs. Another guy does the pancakes. He is taking one of those 'fossies' to put in with the ones for the pancakes, and, watch this guy try to crack it. I got two dozen. They were only $1.97 a dozen.

I have a clear deep bowl sit on the table with the fake dried look Spanish Moss in it with a dozen eggs on the moss. I have an egg bucket that I thought about doing same way and sitting on the porch with the cement geese. Only problem is, the birds might try to nest on the eggs!

I got 'peeps' and chocolate eggs, etc.. So, I am getting ready.

Today, I am not worth anything! How I hate this Fibro. and Fatique. I have started asking DD2 how she does her housework. Since she just has one child left at home to help. And, they have a lot of things to do and places to go. And, her house always looks nice. Now that I am physically unable to do as I once could; I'm taking a new approach.

I hope I feel better tomorrow, I need to have the picture of DD1 and Emma enlarged 2x [8x10] and 1 [5x7]. I want to have her large one done when she gets back from Aspen.

I have some more things done on here, so, I better go.................

Hugs,
Janet

well I tried to get the earring in this morning but it just wouldn't go in the whole way...my sister said maybe my ear lobe was swollen because it was sore....... so tonight I put an ice cube in a cloth hanky and held it to my ear and then was able to push the earring thru........ I left ice on it for awhile and the earring is able to turn freely....... I'm going to put some peroxide on it now

My Mom, sister and I went to Hagerstown like I said ...... we went to Petco first and I got some things for the kids (balls for Peanut to tear apart).... wellness doggie food...... and some stuff for the Easter baskets...... then we went to the Christmas tree shop and I got a supply of my OTC medicines I use...... I got Easter basket plastic bags.... I got this adorable "patriotic" styrofoam dog covered with little brown flower pedals that looks like Mr. Peanut!!! it has a flag coat and a patriotic hat! my sister said it doesn't look like Peanut but it really does!

I got another wind spinner! they had 2 styles and I liked them both....... I'm going to put this one in front of my house so I can see it from my living room..... the other one is in the backyard so I can see it when I'm outside or in the kitchen or dining room..... those are much cheaper than the other one I got........

Then we went to Golden Corral to eat..... huge buffet...... I had the pot roast with veggies first.... then 2 chicken wings..... a small amount of mashed potatoes with corn and lima beans...... I was too full to eat any desserts..... which is strange for me!

Then we came home.........I played a little with Mom's puppy...... he was chewing up my shoe strings!!!!! She got a spray bottle but really it didn't seem to bother him and he had a wet head! the little monkey!!!!!!!! he is soooooo ornery!!!!!!!!!

My Mom is having computer issues saying there is something with the harddrive and she shouldn't use it..... thing is she has the exact same computer I have and we got them the same time and if we all remember mine totally crashed and had to have a new harddrive!!! Now I wonder if hers isn't doing what mine did!!! I don't know if I can get that same guy to work on hers or not? She doesn't even use her computer all that much! So I'm going to ask him if he can work on hers too......

I gave Peanut 3 of the new little squeaker balls I got tonight and he's already ripped the squeaker part out of all 3 of them! I have 3 more I didn't give him yet..... Tootsie ran off with the stretchy froggie toy..... Scruff took the little yellow duck that quacks......

It started out chilly today and was chilly when we left to go to Hagerstown but by the time we got home it was pretty nice out..... I SHOULD have taken the dogs for walks but by then I wasn't able to move...... LOL plus it was just past 7 and they needed their dinner.....

We're to have warmer temps but lots of rain over the next week...... Peanut goes to the Vet next Wednesday for his annual check up and any booster shots....... I called for them to pick up the lawn tractor for it's spring tune up/maintenance..... they said unless it would need something it will cost me $189.95 plus another $25 for picking it up...... I called the doctors office about that lab bill but you have to leave a message and they call back..... *sighs*

Well I'm heading off to bed.......... night everyone....... grocery day tomorrow!

I know for many years I was able to wear earrings and then developed oozing from the holes and inflammation. It was finally determined I have an allergy to most metals (except so far, not stainless steel).

Oh crap..I just wrote a long message and lost it all...bummer.
I am at eldest sons house and we have been outdoors all day. It is sunny and warm..in the 80's/ I am inside now taking a break trying to get my pain level down.

I Amt akin my grandson with me when we go to youngest sons house tomorrow....so I pray all goes well with that. We get granddaughter tomorrow and she will be so happy to see him with us. They can play....and play some more...

Suz..try neosporin on your ear..sounds like some sort of infection.

Hope you all are doing well....I am tired....keeping up with a 2 year old is hard work...he he.

Hugs,
Sarah

PS..I had a lot more to say but lost it and now can't remember....

Sarah glad to hear you made it safely and Lily is still doing so well!

I again didn't do a lot..... tomorrow I'm planning to go with my sister (maybe my Mom) to Hagerstown MD and we'll go to Petco...... The Christmas Tree Shop...... and plan to eat at the Golden Corral........ I haven't been out in awhile so it will be a treat for me!

Becca was to come today but her Dad's schedule was changed and he was going to be home this morning so she didn't come to stay with me..... I was sad :(

It was warmer today but I didn't walk the dogs because it was still so windy!!! I'm already having sinus issues and didn't want to go out in this wind.... I was also hurting a lot but I took some Aleve and it helped some what........ I did make those 7up biscuits and they are really good....... I took some to my neighbor and I told my sister I'd take her some tomorrow......

So glad I'll be getting my check because I need money too Sarah!! I've been working on my grocery list and things I need for the Easter baskets at the shelter ......

The dogs chased the boys again with them playing ball........ and Sammy........ and ran all over the yard like they were crazy! then they've come in and slept while I watched dancing with the stars and Castle...... LOL good doggies!!!!!!!! I'm amazed at Emily chasing those boys with their ball..... she runs back and forth like Tootsie and Scruff do playing the chase game with Sammy....... and she NEVER runs after Sammy! in fact, Emily hardly ever runs! It's good to see her getting exercise! She comes back to the house and she's panting and smiling.....

I'm having an issue with my right ear lobe........ I have 2 piercings in my ears...... the lower one I got back in high school on a dare by another girl in my class...... my Mom took me to a jewelry store to have them pierced........ I got the 2nd piercing above it after I went on the cruise to the Bahamas and bought a pair of small emerald studs that I always wear now.... but the lower right piercing has been getting sore...... getting crusty...... and I have to keep taking my earring out and cleaning my ear...... now the earring doesn't want to go back in..... it's been pierced for a really long time so I don't know why they are causing problems.... I always leave my emerald earrings in with gold posts..... I've soaked the earring in alcohol and my ear in peroxide I still don't know why it's getting sore and having issues :(
I sleep on that side so it makes it hard when my ear is sore to lay on my ear

Anyway, hope you all have a good nights sleep...... give your babies a kiss from me

Suz

I was so happy to see the video of the woman with her doggie that fell in that sink hole..... I really can't imagine having your 14 year old, blind and deaf doggie fall in a hole like that..... I really would have been hysterical! She was an older lady too....... I hope someone is covering the Vet expenses for her.....

Howdy....I am at eldest sons house with him, DIL and 2 year old grandson Bentley. Also Chris my youngest son is here. So we are having family time. Bentley is wide open....playing and running around.

I'm in Georgia because my dad retired here...I went to Jr high and high school here in Warner Robins then went off to college in South Georgia. I moved to a town called laGrange Georgia and worked there, married and had my kids...but when I got divorced I met my husband jesse and we moved to Arizona...which I LOVED. But he felt led by God to move back to Georgia to be near my parents to help them....so here I am...back in Warner Robins (actually Centerville is my town) and I HATE middle Georgia...always have...but I love my parents so I am there to help them. Things have gotten pretty bad with them. My mom is blind and in a wheelchair but can walk to bathroom with a walker. My dad has glaucoma and is losing his vision..plus his heart is giving out...they wanted to install a pacemaker but he refused. They are 88. It breaks my heart to see them like they are......and I know that they need help..I take my mom to her appointment and take my dad places..but it has gotten to the point that they need help at home with cleaning and cooking and personal care. I pray that my body heals enough so that I am able to help that way too. My brother never calls to check on them....and his wife is basically cold to them...not sure why..she used to help out a long time ago...but now never checks on them or offers assistance of any kind. So it is all on me...and my heart hurts that my parents feel no on cares about them.

Not sure how I got off on all that....but everyone is outside playing and my pain level is really high so I needed to get away and take a little break....plus I have had a headache all day. No fun.

We are going shopping in a little while. I am broke and in debt because of Lily and so I can NOT spend any money.
Nothing new to report....my eyes have been bothering me a lot lately...things are blurry and my eyes are tired and watery a lot. i wonder if it is allergies or if something is going on with them. I have to wear my glasses to see. I used to never really need them.....
getting old.

Hope you all are having a good day..today the sun is out and it is warm and great barefoot weather. When the sun is down tho it turns cold again....so you never really know how to dress.....

Hugs,
Sarah

Well, considering most places have drawbacks to them, I chose to go with weather that I can get along with most of the time. Weather that is too hot makes me feel like I am going to pass out, and I don't know if I will wake from that! I like the rain here since it keeps things green and for the most part the summers aren't too miserable -- especially since I have air-conditioning now.

PTL! The wind is barely blowing! The sun is shining beautifully! It's to be warmer today. The rest of the week in the 60's, with rain a couple of days! But; anything but dreary, snowy days! Right Suz?

Sarah, I too am so glad Lily is doing so well! Prayers can sure do wonders!

I just got home from Church. I took Lexie out; it isn't x for her lunch yet. We had communion today. It will be later till hubby gets home. So; he is bringing some lunch home.

Nellie; here to the north of you are the mud slides; and to the south is earthquakes! I know neither one is close to you, but to me it would be too close.

Our town sits on top of a cave that covers almost of our town. So, if there is any close to us, we may just feel a tremor. Just so it doesn't become a sinkhole. North of town years and years ago there was a sinkhole under the main road. The highway dept. kept dumping truck load after truckload of dirt and sand in it. Never did get it filled; it was like a bottomless pit. Finally they put a steel plate over it. Problem solved! And, that was before I was borned.

I was asleep before 10 p.m. last night and didn't get awake until 5 this morning. Still I have been so sleepy. 7-hrs. sleep! I honestly think that is too much for me! I think I will try to cut it down to 6-1/2 tonight and see what happens!

It's getting closer to Lexie's lunch x. She will be letting me know about it................

Hugs,
Janet

my hand is going to sleep! LOL

it's raining A LOT!!! the kids are upset with going out......... I had to take the wind spinner down I was afraid as strong as the wind was it would break it! I've had 2 wind mills break that I had up because of the wind and tree branches falling on them......... I hate to have this one damaged the 2nd day I put it up! They are calling for stronger winds tomorrow.....ugh!!

Suz..isn't it strange how different yorkie hair can be. Lily is CKC and her hair is thick and coarse and tends to curl up...it is quite unruly. Willows hair is soft and flowing and looks so beautiful. So I cut Lily's hair all off except for her topknot...while I kept Willows long silky hair. They both look so much better.
I am glad you are resting some and I pray you feel better soon. I laughed at the boys climbing on the roof. I found out years later that my sons used to climb on our roof and jump into our pool....that freaks me out now but I NEVER knew they were doing it back then. It is quite dangerous.

Janet..you can always pull up a hobby lobby coupon on your phone to use there...I do it all the time. Just type in hobby lobby coupon and they will scan your phone. I had thought of going to Hobby lobby today but my pain level is way up so I am simply taking it easy. I have taken several doses of vicodin and that hasn't even touched it for some reason...not sure except that it looks like rain. Who knows. Maybe the stress of Lily has caught up to me...I am so glad it waited till she was better.

I am so leased with Lily..she seems almost normal now...and is doing all the normal doggie things. God certainly answered prayers for her. I am so thankful! I really appreciate you all praying for her....it means so much to have friends like you.

OK...I will check back in later...I really need to rest some and see if I can get my pain level down.

Good Morning, Girls!

First things first!
Today according to Fb is "Hobby Lobby" Day to support them on their Supreme Court appearance! You might know, I had no intention on going to there today because I didn't save my coupons this week. But, I just might gol I can always get something. That is IF I can even get in!
If impossible, there is a med. size "Wal-Mart" close by. Then. I'll get my hair done, before the predicted weather sets in...................

Till later,
Hugs,
Janet

Well I felt a little better today, I still took cold meds and emergen C ... I opened the box for my new wind spinner and it looked pretty simple so I put it together and put it outside but I'm having trouble getting it in the ground........ then I moved it......... then I moved it another place......... ok I moved it another time next to the bush cause I could get it down in the ground further....... but it's still not in the whole way....... ugh!!!! it's next to the bush I don't like and want dug out........ if I could get it out then I could let the wind spinner there and plant the flowers around it.....

The boys were outside again........ and were climbing on the roof of the house again.... I'm pretty sure one of them is going to fall off the roof of the house and get hurt...... but on the upside my fur kids got tons of exercise......... again Emily ran back and forth chasing the boys kicking their soccer ball... then she'd run to the house ..... then she'd run back out....... Tootsie just barks at them but she gets closer each time and she is still wagging her tail........ Peanut ignores them and just runs trying to get their ball....... Scruffy wants them to come pet him....... LOL

I just hung out most of the day and took another nap........ it rained off and on......... it rained really hard early but then tapered off....... calling for rain the next 2 days....... but it will be warmer!

Sarah so glad that Lily is improving...... I'd be worried about her getting any more bumps on her head any time soon........ hopefully she'll fully recover!!!!

Emily hair is awful to let grow...... the fur on her ears seemed so heavy and looked like they weighed her face down......... I'm going to keep her short from now on.......... Tootsie's hair is fine and more straight........ more like Winston's hair was.........but I will probably keep my little Tom boy's hair shorter too......... she likes to get dirty! LOL

I brushed out Scruffy tonight and took a whole brush full of loose hair out of him...... ugh!!! I'm not really used to shedding dogs...... LOL white doggie hair over my black bathrobe! LOL

well I think I can go to bed now.......... night everyone

Hi guys! Busy day for me. I got my hair done....after driving up to Macon....then home again to pick up the babies....took them to the groomer. They let me stay with Lily while she was done...she did fine....she is amazing...so much better than she was.....you can hardly tell anything is wrong I had all her long hair cut off...she got a puppy cut....but has enough on top for her bow. She looks so much better...she has very coarse thick hair and I know it has to feel better. Poop was getting stuck on her bootie so I knew they needed to get groomed.. Willow just got her face and butt cut....her hair is so different than lily's/. Willow has soft flowing hair. I really don't plan to cut her hair. It is amazing how different their hair is as close alike as they look.

I am really really tired. I plan to rest this weekend....then go to Chris's house on Monday or Tuesday.
By the way....the vet said to treat Lily like normal so that Is why I decided to get her groomed..and travel is fine since she is used to it. She is chewing a bully stick right now..I am sooooooooo happy to have my girl back.

Suz...hope you are feeling better....I hope you got some rest. You push way too hard.

Hugs,
Sarah

The sun is still shining brightly. I hope the weatherman is wrong about tomorrow! DD1 called a bit ago to asked to be called in the morning at 3-a.m.. Hubby usually has to be up at that time to go to the potty. So, this time he is calling her. She has to finish getting ready and Emma because they have to drive approx. 45-mile to Dayton, Ohio. Take off time at Dayton International Airport at 10:47 a.m.. They will arrive in Aspen, Colo. at 5:10 p.m. our x.. And, come back April 6th.. Prayers please for traveling mercies.

Sarah, you are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Oh, to be 57-yrs. old again. And, know what I know now. Oh, well.

Suz, you feeling better today? It's the 'pits' to be 'down', isn't it? What's the weather to be tomorrow?

Nellie, how does your garden grow! LOL! A local green house is having a new petunia this year. I saw it on facebook this a.m.. Actually, it was posted by a woman that lives around the corner from us! It is purple on the outside edges; and a gold color in the middle.

I am sitting here 'playing' with my computer; Hubby's asleep in his recliner. Lexie is on the foot rest covered up, fast asleep! I feel like I am 'burning up'! My head hurts, and my sinus bones are throbbing.

Better finish up here. Catch you all later.

Hugs,
Janet

At this point my strawberry plants are getting watered, plus the pansies that Brad's mom planted. There are some mystery plants in the side yard raised bed that I assume are ones that Jason planted since they are growing in a nice neat row.
