Hi All;

Another nice day - not as warm as this weekend, but certainly NOT February weather either! I think it's supposed to stay warm all week - I'll take that!

Today was a quiet day at work - half the place was out on vacation due to it being a holiday. I really enjoyed the quiet and was able to get alot of work done.

I was hoping to start on my taxes this weekend, but I'm still missing 1 W2, it's supposed to be in the mail....I guess they meant to say the pony express!

Liz - it certainly is a small world! And I agree the downtown of Westfield is so nice. my daughter and I used to love spending a Saturday there.

Merri, how nice of you to go out and walk with your neighbor - I'm sure she enjoyed the friendly conversation.

Hi to everyone!

Zone 4: Mission #2 Tuesday

(Zone 4: The Master Bedroom, Bathroom, and Closet)

We are going to move into the Master Closet today! Spend 15 Minutes decluttering the top shelf of your closet. I am sure you will find things up there you have forgotten all about. If you can't get to the top of your closet, take that 15 minutes and declutter what is keeping you from that she

Hi Phyliss and WELCOME!!!! Happy to have you here!!! I have friends in CA who say they
"need the rain", where are you from? I lived in NE Ohio for nearly 73 years, relocated to Rock Hill SC last September and love it here.

Slow and steady is the best way to accomplish weight loss. Way to go!!! Hope your hubby feels better!

Look forward to getting to know you - some great friendships have grown in this group!!

Good Morning everyone. I'm new to the group, but this seems like a very pleasant and inviting group.
This Monday is a rainy one in my area, but we are in need of the rain, so I will not complain. The Hubby is home sick, poor fella, so I will be playing nurse maid today.
I was so happy to do my weekly weigh in and find I had lost 1.6 pounds... i'll take that..lol. My weight loss journey will be a sloooooow one I know, but that is okay...
I will keep my little fit bit in place and perhaps I will get to use my Wii Fit some time today. Everyone have a wonderfully blessed day.

Peggy, hope you feel better fast!! Spring colds aren't fun!

Merri, that's nice you walked with that lady - I sure hope he didn't give her a hard time about it!

Gwyn, I've had two treadmills and sold them both - I just do so much better walking outdoors.

Trudy, Rock Hill is a beautiful area, really happy this is where we settled. Looked in Charlotte first because that's where Jim's job is, but that's too much "city" for me. This is still pretty close to a city but really nice nature areas, too. Still might have liked the Smoky Mt. area better, but we had to be convenient to where Jim and Austin work, doggone it. LOL

Sharon, we don't have Hallmark channel and I sure miss it! That was my favorite in Ohio!

Luvs2Bike, sounds like that was a challenging ride!

Liz, hope you're able to do the needlepoint. I never tried that.

Thinking we'll take Aiyden down to the playground this afternoon - it's a good walk and he loves to play there. He's at Brenda's right now. Andrea works till 6. Won't be long till she's on maternity leave, she's at 38 weeks now.

I forgot to post Fly Lady last night.

Here it is

Zone 4: Mission #1 Monday

This week we are in Zone 4: The master Bedroom, Bathroom, and Closet. The mission for today is to Clean off the top of your dresser. Throw away any trash, and put away random items that have been put there in a stash and dash. Make sure to dust after you have finished! If the top of your dresser is a major job, set your timer and tackle this 15 minutes at a time.



Zone 4: Mission #2 Tuesday



We are going to move into the Master Closet today! Spend 15 Minutes decluttering the top shelf of your closet. I am sure you will find things up there you have forgotten all about. If you can't get to the top of your closet, take that 15 minutes and declutter what is keeping you from that shelf.



Zone 4: Mission #3 Wednesday



I am sure you could guess we are going to the Master Bathroom! The mission today is to go through your makeup. Get rid of anything that is too old and not used. Old makeup can give you infections, especially eye liner, mascara, and eye shadow.



Zone 4: Mission #4 Thursday



Today let's clean off the bed side tables. Get all the tissues, trash, books, and cups off of these and put them where they belong. I have spilled many glasses of water because I did not take my cup to the kitchen in the morning! You will love the feeling when you go to bed this evening, and wake up without all that clutter in your face!



Zone 4: Mission #5 Friday



Today is window washing day! Clean all the windows in your Master Bedroom and if you have one in your bathroom clean that one too. Make sure to wipe the window sill and the frame.

Good Monday morning. It is 35 here and they are saying a high of around 54! I am afraid we are going to be paying for this down the road yet before spring is here...

Barb, We have a Sears here in town and we have noticed that too about the shelves being empty more often now too...I do know that the men can now find their tools from Craftsman selling at so many more stores now too...A few are K-mart..Menards, Ace hardware and Lowes....

Mr Ken wants Manwich for lunch on his mashed potatoes....That is ok with me..Just keep the guys happy...

Today Mr Ken has to go to the chiropractor. It is a good thing as he has been tugging with the kitchen window and than the new garage door opener,,,All is done now....

Yesterday I seen our neighbor lady who lives with the mean neighbor going for a walk past our house. I went out and joined her. Oh my, she gets tired so fast. She has to do dialyses for her only kidney three times a week...We only went as far as she felt comfortable...Maybe we can do it again soon...I just hope he didn't get mad at her for talking to me...So mean!!!

Good morning,
It's cloudy and foggy this morning, but, the sun is suppose to come out by noon. Should be up around 70 again today. I have three friends coming over to sit on the deck this afternoon.
I hope it does clear up.
I had a nice time at the neighbors yesterday. The first cookout of the year! Except for actually eating we sat on their deck for a couple of hours!! So nice and the burgers tasted great!!
It sounds like everyone had a good weekend.
Merri, congratulations on the new GGS. How exciting!!
Joyce, it seems like you live in a lovely place. I hope to visit sometime. I'd love to see the area.
Peggy, I hope you can head off this cold before it takes hold of you!!
Roz, I hope you can get out and about a bit more this week.
Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning everyone!!! It's 57 here and we're headed out to Bagel King.

I canceled going to Bunch for Lunch because my head was getting clogged and it's a good thing.

My throat is really hurting this morning.

Yesterday was a beautiful day for outdoor activities. I took my bike to a trail only to find I should have brought my snowshoes! I managed to bike through 2.5 miles then headed home. Still a good workout for muscles and balance!

Morning All! It was a beautiful day yesterday and another today! Quite odd for Feb.

Merri - congratulations on your new GG! How wonderful!

Grace - so sorry about your foot. I broke my left wrist several weeks ago and am finding the cast a real nuisance. It's so hard to pull my underwear up - and housework is out of the question. lol!

Barb - small world! I did all my shopping in Westfield. The downtown is gorgeous - rated in the top 10 in the country. I loved it and miss it. Beat the mall any day. All the major retailers are there. It is a great place to shop and have lunch/dinner.

I can't knit right now so I am going to get a needlepoint piece out and see if I can do it one-handed. Just watching tv is awful. Have a great day!

I took it easy and relaxed yesterday. I did finish getting my taxes ready to go to the taxman. My son will take them over today. I also did some reading and watched some HallMark movies. It was beautiful at 56 with sun. This morning I woke up at 4 and it was raining and there was thunder and lightning. So unusual for February but kind of nice. The temperature is still 54 so it was a real melting night. Hope you all have a great day.

Normally I go to the gym to exercise -- not today. I have to go into work an hour early for an inservice today so I am going to use our treadmill and hand weights here at home. Hubbie won the treadmill a few years ago.

Good evening everyone,

It appears you all stole my sunshine again today! emoticon
Glad you all had a nice weekend.
We had a light steady rain for awhile, but it did stop long enough that I got in
my 2 mile walk. Had a double rainbow, which was a treat.
Decided to change the bed today and do a few things, since tomorrow it is supposed to be
dry again, and a little cooler 70-72f. That works for me!

Thinking about hitting the Antiqua factory outlet tomorrow, they make a lot of the shirts, jackets, etc with sports logos. MLB, NBA, & NFL,
When we went there a few years back, I got some great deals. I have a few birthdays coming up and hoping I can get lucky and find a few things. Stuff was half price or less then. So cross your fingers!

I guess I am going to have to stop at the grocery again before Wednesday, I can't seem to buy enough to make it a whole week. I guess it's because I don't have anything in the freezer and I don't make enough that we have left overs. That's the part about this not being my house that I have a hard time adjusting to.

But then, I don't have to repair it or pay for it, so a few extra trips to Spouts or Safeway is just fine.

Well, I just noticed my iPad battery is at 15%, so I better cut this short and plug it in.
Think I will get my shower out of the way too.

Have a great Monday, holiday, of course, being retired every day is a holiday! I just love it!

Cheri

Good evening gals....

Doesn't sunshine make all the difference.......that was what I disliked most about winter in Ohio, all the grey days. Rarely saw the sun at all in January! Depressing! Here the sun shines with totally blue skies so much of the time, just love that!

Has a nice relaxing day. We went to Riverwalk for a couple of hours and walked the trails - so pretty there! Came back and sat out on our balcony enjoying the sun and listening to Josh Turner music. Had burgers at Brenda's - her friend is leaving first thing in the morning to beat the Charlotte traffic. Although it shouldn't be that bad tomorrow, I'd think a lot less with it being President's Day. But she figures that way she can get home earlier and regroup and relax before going back to work Tuesday.

Hope everyone has enjoyed their day today!!!

Hi All;

We had a beautiful weekend - weather wise. Saturday it was in the 50s and today it got up to the low 60s! What a difference from last Sunday when we had an all-day ice storm! Finally melting this snow - there are some sections that I can see the grass! Now everyone has 'spring fever', but it is still February and we have all of March to go!

Did alot of errands yesterday, tried to get everything done on Saturday so we can relax today. Doesn't always work that way! Went to Sears today, Jerry was looking for a pair of snow boots and since everything was on sale, thought he'd find them. They had nothing! We walked around the store and there were so many empty or near empty shelves. Really makes me wonder if they will be closing soon.

Merri, congrats on the new little one!

Gwyn, yes walking a dog counts! Of course there's plenty of stops - but hey - you're out and you're walking.

Annie, good for you in sticking to your guns with the dentist. They try to push the expensive treatments. My 'Ex' always used to tell them that he didn't want the best teeth in the cemetery!

Lizzie, I lived in Westfield about 25 yrs ago for 2 yrs - so I know Cranford!

So Peggy - did you like the flagel???

Everyone else - Hi!

Thanks to all of you for your kind remarks.
You are all an encouragement to me as well.

I trust that you are all keeping as well as can be expected
and hang in there Winter will soon give way
to Spring and warmer weather.

Have had a very laid back week, watched a lot of TV
some I found interesting others left much to be desired.
Should be out and about some more this week, God's willing.

Gracie------Sorry about your foot hope it is healed soon and you'll be able to walk unaided.

Home made wine ----I used to make a lot but DH always was sampling it before it was even set!!!
Today we have slight drizzies with a cool comdortable 78

Have a blessed week everyone !
Much Love!

I am just taking the weekend fairly easy. I did do some housework and grocery shopping yesterday though.

Today I actually saw what the sun looked like for a little while. It makes such a difference in one's outlook when it is not cloudy, snowy, or rainy out.

Tomorrow is a holiday for us. It is nice to have a long weekend. I might be up to moving some of the snow off of my back deck tomorrow, we'll see..

Hi Grace!!! Always good to have you stop by and say hello! So sorry about your foot though! How did you do that??

Trudy, I've never heard of the wine tasting party - that would be right up Brenda's aisle - she really enjoys her wine. One of her friends back in Ohio makes homemade wine - all kinds of it - and she hosts a wine tasting party of her own wines once a year. She wins best of show at both county fairs most years!

I have to get started on our taxes. Still short one 1099, but the amount never changes so don't really have to have it. Probably at Amy's and she doesn't bother putting it in the mail for me. She has a lot on her mind with Chance being gone, I know it's hard on her. Half way there......

We had some rain last night but supposed to be gorgeous today - in the 70's again. I think Brenda wants to take her friend down to Riverwalk or Lake Wylie this afternoon. She goes back to Ohio tomorrow.

Merri, that really had to be a good laugh watching your neighbor!! Oh my goodness!! Hope Ken's back is OK today.

Hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing day today!!

Good morning,
Foggy, foggy, foggy this morning. It isn't cold. I think it's suppose to be sunny and 70 later.
The neighbors invited me over for burgers on the grill. We can sit on the deck and smell the grill!!
The wine tasting party was fun yesterday. There were 11 people. Lots of good wine and good food!! It's a wine and food paring. Really fun. For those of you who like wine it's called the Traveling Vineyard. You might look into having a party for your friends. It's a fun afternoon or evening!!
Joyce, those pictures on fb were so nice from Myrtle Beach! Sorry to hear about Brenda's ticket. It'll be interesting to see what Brenda finds out about the cop "helping" her out, when she calls!!
Merri, I'll bet you really were getting a kick out of watching the neighbor try to put his ladder up!! Even if you'd felt like telling him what his mistake was, he wouldn't have listened to you!! I hope Mr. Ken doesn't suffer with his back.
Annie, have a good time while away. Is this the trip where you're going to start looking for a house in OR? You're probably right about the rain water sinking into the sand!
Peggy, how was you time alone!!
Cheri, I guess rain even must fall in paradise!! Great on the winnings though!!
Gwyn, yes, I agree, walking the dog is exercise!!
Lovestobike, I hope you're able to get out in the spring weather and do some biking. Where do you live?
Grace, good to see you. How are things going? What projects are you working on now?
Hi to all!!
Everyone have a GREAT day!!

Good morning everyone!!! It's 64 and we are just getting ready to head out to the store.

Cheri, when Jerry is home he is on the other side of the house but I don't get to sing at the top of my lungs if I feel like it. Not that he would tell me to keep it down.

Good Sunday morning...It is already 41 here and we are going to get to around 54 or so...We broke a record here yesterday for how warm we got!!! I will take it and it is one day closer to Spring...

Joyce, Oh my...Brenda got a ticket...I know Mr Ken has gotten one in his life too...But, if the little one has to go potty...you have to move LOL

I love the pictures you guys took at the beach..It is almost as good as being there with you guys..Always so nice to see them on FB

So Mr Ken got the garage door opener installed. It comes down a bit fast...so today he needed to do some fine tuning...He came in with a sore back tho....I kept checking on him and his ladder..It was new..but you can still fall off of it...

The mean neighbor next door was trying to get one of these metal ladders to expand for him...Every time he would take it away from the garage...it would collapse. I just laughed and laughed at him...I even knew what he was doing wrong....The dumb ladder was up side down LOL..That is why the little things wouldn't catch in place..Just too funny...

Yesterday I was able to walk for 25 mintutes and I did a lot of little chores around the house including a load of clothes. I worked on my taxes a little and got outside to enjoy some fresh air. Hope you all have a great day today. It is supposed to be 55 here today.

emoticon I just wanted to stop by and say hi to everyone! It's been a long time - I get so busy with the BLC that I just don't like spending so much time on the computer! Then I forget about it after a while!

I'm been laid up with a fractured foot. I've been in a lovely big old 10 pound boot learning to get around on crutches and a wheelchair! It's a 6-8 week recovery time but I'm hoping for 6 weeks! I see the doc next week to find out how it's healing!

Take care everyone! It was fun catching up with you all!

Cheri they just use your SS number and birth date to find your license in the computer. He told her he "helped her out" and when she calls them with the ticket number they would tell her what he did. No idea what that was all about.

Good afternoon all,

Not so sunny in Valley of the sun today.
We r getting the back end of the storm that hit California, especially southern Ca
with torrential rains. It actually might be warmer in Oh than here this afternoon. It was 70f
this morning, but it's dropped to 59f. They say the rain should be around tomorrow too. We haven't experienced any heavy rain here in Goodyear, but,it has rained off and on most of the day and it's like an ugly Ohio sky!

Annie, I hope u are not getting the deluge that the California coast got.

We went to an Indian casino for a little while this afternoon. We always set a limit. This time,
we both actually won. Usually one wins and covers the loss of the other one, or we both loose.
So now we have seed money for return trips if we have another rainy day or two. emoticon

Joyce, in Oh u have 24 hours to produce your license. Does it work the same way there?
It seems you can't win sometimes, doesn't it?

We decided to go the mass in the morning rather than 5pm tonite. Not certain why.

I thought I packed a small mending kit, but apparently not and of course a new top I bot, the hem in the sleeves is coming out. makes me so mad, 2nd time I wore it. Now I gotta head to JoAnns I guess for needles and thread.

Peggy, u remind me of my sister-in-law, every time the boys go off for a morning or afternoon, she texts me a big WAHOO! HOME ALONE!! Sometimes she calls and asks me to break something so they can have a fix it day at my house, rather than theirs! I just banish my hubby to the basement/man cave when I need space! Or threaten not to feed him. That works real well.

Everyone have an enjoyable weekend!!

Where r those guys? I thought we were a nice welcoming bunch!!

Later
Cheri

Did you enjoy the Flagel Peggy?

On our way to Myrtle. Brenda left her purse at home. Told me I'm buying her lunch and she better not get pulled over because she doesn't have her license. Jinxed herself. Yep got pulled over. Aiyden had to go potty so she was trying to hurry. Thought it was 45 limit and it was 35.

Merri CONGRATS on the new GSS. That's wonderful news.

Gwyn, If say walking the dog counts.

So many flowering trees in bloom along the way. Pretty drive. I'll check back tonight.

I have been exercising on a daily basis for about 18 years now. This past year, I feel really lazy as I am only doing about 15-20 minutes a day -- compared to my former 40 - 45 minutes a day. I need to get back up there. does walking a dog count for exercise? If so I am at 20 minutes a day to 25 minutes a day

It is 35 F. here this morning and will be 58 today. It did get to 53 yesterday. What lovely weather for this time of year. Average highs for this time is in the 20's. I walked for 20 minutes yesterday and did lots of little cleaning projects around the house yesterday. I even got outside for about 20 minutes and cleaned up some of the dog mess that I couldn't get this winter. It is thawing so much and I am seeing some grass now. Feeling good again this morning and hope it continues for the day. Off to get a shower and get started. Hope you all have a good day.

I don't blame you on saying no to the crown Annie - they always opt for the most expensive fix. I'd do the same.

Glenda, you take it easy with all that shoveling! Don't overdo it!

Had a nice family dinner at Brenda's tonight with her Spark friend from Ohio. We're going to Myrtle Beach in the morning to spend the day and meet up with one of my Spark friends, too. Fun times.

I have had a very busy week shoveling here with all the snow we had. Mother nature sure gave us a lot. My back is not too happy with me because of it, and I am ready for spring now.

Tomorrow is grocery day for me. I am down in all my vegies and fruits, etc. I must be eating well.

Time for me to go on my TC so I will check in again soon.

It was 46 when we left for Bagel King this morning. We got an everything flagel to bring home to try tomorrow. A man who eats there told us to try it since we like a lot of seeds.

It is a bagel that has been flattened.

We went for a walk when we got home.

That's a great plan Merri - ours doesn't have a ceiling. Andy's dosage is 5 mg twice a day. My plan is through the School Employees Retirement System. But it still saves us a ton of money over regular retail, so I won't complain (too much) LOL

Good Fri morning where we are at 30 right now and it is going to get to a high of 60!!!!

I got an email last night that Mr Ken's kitchen window is in at Menards....A great weekend for us to put the window in...it is on the inside of the kitchen...Not going to be cold...

Than the garage door opener...It will be good for Mr Ken to start moving more too...His said his back is sore again...I myself think it is from too much sitting?? Time to move Mr Ken LOL

Ok Joyce, Our meds ceiling is $100 through Express Scripts...Maybe that is why? I see the highest dosage was 2.5...It wouldn't matter how many a person would have to take..it is still the top price of $100 for three months...Ours is still through Ken's where he worked at Pepsi..

It did say $39.33 from the pharmacy every month...

Hi everyone!

Barb, sounds like you have a real keeper in Jerry! Good for you! That's really soooo thoughtful of him!

Liz, boy do I hear you on "where does time go?" My eldest GREAT grandkids will be 16 this year! Way to go getting a hot pink cast! Sorry about the break, though.

Trudy, the little ones are going with us. It's just a day trip and they love the beach. Those chocolate recipes sound really interesting!

Gwyn, you make me feel lazy....haven't even checked out the fitness room at the apt. office since they finally got it open. We have been taking good walks though.

Sharon, sure glad you're feeling better today!!

Merri, I got on and checked with Express Scripts - Andy's is the higher dosage so it would be $200 for 90 days IF it was eligible for home delivery. Not sure on that yet. I know when I checked on some of his before, they couldn't be home delivered for some reason - or maybe the plan we have doesn't allow for it.

We're going to be in the 70's the whole next week! Love it!

Good morning,
Well, it's 41 here this morning. Heading to 60 or higher. We're suppose to have spring weather, including the wind, until sometime next week!!
Gwyn, so glad you tire was handled. It's really worrisome to lose a checkbook. I hope it turns up!!
Sharon, so glad you're feeling better this morning. I hope the warmer weather helps!
Barb, what a wonderful man you have!! A real keeper. So nice after being married to "Oscar"!!
He really is helping you learn to have fun again! That's wonderful!
Joyce, WOW it's really something about the price of the surgery! Gosh, we are SO fortunate to have insurance aren't we!! Are you going to Myrtle Beach today or tomorrow? Is this trip sans kids or are the littles going too? My surgery is scheduled for the 28th of Feb.
Annie, bunco is SO much fun. My group fell apart. I wish I could find another group.
I'm going to fix food for a wine tasting party I'm helping host tomorrow. It's a fun time.
Yesterday the Chocolate Extravaganza was really nice. I fixed Spicy Chocolate Chicken that was really yummy and everyone loved it. One woman brought a salad with chocolate dressing that was ABSOLUTELY wonderful. Our next luncheon will be a salad luncheon in May.
Everyone have a great weekend.

I am feeling so much better today. It was a very tough day yesterday but I was able to clear the air way last night about 9. I feel like a truck ran over me but will get busy and do a few things today to work it out of me. It is going to be about 48 today with full sun and boy that is almost breaking a record. It is 36 right now and when it doesn't freeze at night it really seems to thaw. Hope you all have a great day.

Morning All! It is going to be 50 today and over 60 tomorrow! I'll take it!

Spent the day yesterday with DD Tracy and GD Tara. We went to Sam's because I can't carry large packages. So nice to have helpers! Wed was Tracy's bday - she turned 53. Where did the time go?

They loved my hot pink cast on my left arm. I tripped on my cane at Physical Therapy last week and broke my wrist! I am a mess. lol

Barb - I live in Freehold, Monmouth County. I moved 2 years ago after living in Cranford, Union County for nearly 50 years. I love it here!

Have a super weekend!

Hi All;

Well I thought I was on here last night - but I guess not! Wow, seems like I'm losing it!!

I had a wonderful V-day.....I just absolutely hated that day - after being married to 'Oscar the Grouch' for so many years, it was just a miserable day that couldn't end soon enough! Well, Jerry has turned all that around. He bought me a beautiful ring, he didn't buy it for V-day, however, he thought if he gave it to me for that day it would change my feelings about it. Well boy did it ever! I had spotted the ring in the jewelers a few weeks ago - I even tried it on, but it was too expensive. That bugger, went back the next day and bought it - then he had the jeweler keep it in the safe for him until he decided when to give it to me! So I have the most wonderful man!

Merri - you're so happy with your toilet seat! And what a great thing that Golden Corral did!

I'm listening to all of you talking about Medicare and what is and isn't covered. I'll be eligible this year in October - so this is all good information.

Everyone have a good weekend.

Zone 3: Mission #5 Friday
(Zone 3: The Main Bathroom and Another Room)



Today is gong to be an easy one! Today I want you to empty the garbage in the bathroom, laundry room, extra bedroom, kids rooms, and the office. I usually get one kitchen trash bag and empty all of them in it so I only have 1 bag to take out!

I'll have to look into it some more Merri. Maybe it's the dosage he's on, not sure. I don't think there's a generic yet. Thanks for looking though - I'll have to do some more homework.

We got the bill today for that catheter ablasion - over $90,000! After adjustments and what our insurance paid we only had to pay $400. But can you imagine?????? Over $40,000 for "supplies". Good grief he was only there overnight! And that was without being billed for a room because they had to keep him in recovery all night because there were no beds available. CRAZY!

Merri, I have Express Scripts and it costs us $90 a month for his Eliquis! I wonder why the difference? I wouldn't complain about $100 for three months! Is that at the pharmacy or home delivery? Seems whenever I've checked on home delivery they tell me it's not available for whatever I'm looking for.

Annie, that's awesome you have such a good time at Bunco! Love it!

Joyce, I looked it up Andy's Eliquis on our Express Scripts and it shows that Mr Ken would have to pay $100 every three months for it...I just did a check on it that was all.....That is what Mr Ken pays for his insulin every three months too...I am for my HB pressure meds too...Fun to get old LOL

Annie - that's awesome on the help with your taxes!!! Always good to save some money, isn't it??

Gwyn, glad the tire is handled....for you I'm sure the unexpected expense was a nuisance! Hope the checkbook shows up!

Peggy, another busy day for you I see, but I know you'll enjoy lunch with your friends!!

Sharon, sorry you're not feeling any better! But that's awesome you can save money on your co-pay. Most of mine are not bad, but Andy's new one for Eliquis is a costly one!

Trudy, when is your surgery scheduled??

Merri, we're at 42 heading to 60 but it's full sun. We'll be back in the 70's for the weekend.

Aiyden stayed here last night. Andrea is off today so he should be going home with her soon. Key word is "should." LOL

Good morning,
It's pretty here this morning. It's suppose to get to the mid 50's today and the high 60's the next 6 days. Seems like early spring. The weatherman said yesterday, "don't count winter out yet" Darn!! (LOL)
Thanks for all the support for speedy recovery!!
Cheri, you're really having fun aren't you!! I love to play euchre. Don't do it too often, but I do love it.
Annie, that's great about the AARP tax help. The senior center where I volunteer has AARP people there. They don't have a good system though and some people wait WAY too long. I really feel their frustration. If you have time to wait though, it's free!! Just what are you going to do with your $240?
I'm going to the Y at 11:15 for the chocolate extravaganza. It's always fun.
Everyone take care today and have a good one!!

Annie, Oh love reading posts and you guys say you got some for FREE!!! Great job...

Now you might be able to find something to do with the $240 windfall?? What a good feeling it had to be too...

Not much going on here today...

Trudy, You can count on my prayers for a quick recovery from your surgery too from K-town...

Supposed to be 46 here today with sunshine. Hope it makes it. I am not feeling any better today but hope it will clear today. It was nice of Barb to bring all the meat. It really helps. She spent a lot of time researching prescription drug help and was able to get my one copay for my new prescription down from $146.00 copay to $25 and another that was $86 down to I think $35. Boy does that help. Well, better get something done around here. Hope you all have a good day.

Cheri when I am researching family history in the old local papers they were always reporting about the euchre games.

They told who was playing and who won and what the prizes were.

Zone 3: Mission #4 Thursday
(Zone 3: The Main Bathroom and Another Room)

Today is double duty with the main bathroom and laundry room. Take the rugs from your bathroom and wash them. Before you start the rugs in the wash wipe down the top and front of your washer and dryer. Then throw the rags in with the rugs from the bathroom! If you do not have any rugs in the bathroom, take this time to reboot your laundry. Don't forget to wipe down the washer and dryer though!

Cheri, it sounds like you're having a blast there! Happy for you! Never learned to play euchre but did belong to a pinochle club back in the day.
