I ended up missing Laurata's party because I am throwing up and have the runs.

I haven't thrown up in years. I forgot how so not fun it was.

Barb congrats on getting the job

Hi All;

emoticon HOORAY !!!! I got the job!!

I am so happy - what a tremendous burden to be lifted from my shoulders.

It has been just 5 days shy of 7 months unemployed! Rough road!!

Peggy, what great challenges you have - and they're fun. What a shame that your friend has to leave, everyone will miss her and she in turn will miss all. At least you'll be able to visit her in a few months.

Joyce, you can still do your taxes - just don't send the check until 4/15! That's a good idea for you to check out the Y.....you can take classes in your spare time...LOL !!!

Merri, so glad your DD likes her job..we used to call that a 4/40, those hours were popular a few years back as you get an 'extra' day off.

Annie, Kids night sounds like fun! Enjoy yourself. Next year give Turbo Tax a try - it is easy.

Trudy, it's always nice to be invited out to dinner...good food, good company and the best is you don't have to cook!

Gwyn, just keep pushing for normal hours - it's a shame that the agency doesn't stick up for you.

Char, glad you're on the mend! This was a bad cold for you.

Peggy, that's awesome you will still be able to see Lauratta - that makes it all a bit easier, doesn't it?

We have winter storm warnings in the area from tonight through Thursday. I think we might miss it again, but 6-12 north of us. Maybe five here. Farther north may get more than the 12". Lake Erie hasn't frozen over this year, so heavy lake effects are possible.

Have the kids today, naturally. Gave them both tubbies - it's hard for Andrea to make time for that sometimes, so figured we'd just go ahead and help her out. Adalyn got a good nap after hers, so it helped us, too. LOL

Mmmm, the roast sounds good Merri! Sure wish my DH cooked. He's good at warming leftovers and he can cook spaghetti - that's about it! LOL I have pork chops thawing for tonight.

Oh Annie, sitting by the ocean visiting sounds SO relaxing! Enjoy!!

Sounds like you have a full day Trudy! You are sure enjoying the Y, aren't you? We have one here in town at the old middle school, but I don't think there's a pool there. Have to check out what they do have.

When I am in NY and sleeping over my sister Patty's the place where Lauratta will be living is only an hour away.

Jerry and his friend even went fishing there once.

So we plan on getting together in June when I am up there.

Good morning!
We, like Merri, have a very cold morning. It's 18 here now. One of those strange phenomena,
sunshine and snowing! Out total snow was less than an inch.
Enjoy that roast on this cold winter day Merri!
CHAR, SO HAPPY YOU'RE ON THE MEND!! IT'S TAKEN SOME TIME HASN'T IT!!
Peggy, thank you so much for the fun challenges!! I'm really loving it! Enjoy the party for Lauretta. I know it's a sad time. Hopefully you'll be able to connect again.
Annie, I hope you have a day with a little rest!!
Joyce, have a great day!
Barb, enjoy your day!
Gwyn, I hope your hours are reduced for Sunday. Sounds like there may be something more to the long hours situation. Doesn't it!
My niece does my taxes, has for years and she uses Turbo Tax. We've never had a problem. I hope those of you considering it will do it!! They lead you through it and check it at the end. If there are any problems they lead you through them.
Everyone have a great day. I'm working out with the trainer and then home for a couple of hours and back to the Y for water aerobics. A friend invited me to dinner, so, I don't have to cook.
Have a great day!!

Good morning from K-town where we have a whopping 14 degrees and some light snow too.

Mr Ken is putting on a nice big roast. He doesn't like me in his way LOL...So, I just took it out of the freezer and took the paper off and the rest is his job...

Our Debbie really likes her new job at Amazon. One day she got 22,??? steps and yesterday 23,??? steps. She surely doesn't have to do any other exercises like she was doing LOL...We just have to remember that she isn't our teenager anymore and that she is actually 54... She is working ten hour days too for four days and than off three...

Good Morning Gals....

CHAR, SO GLAD YOU ARE FINALLY FEELING A BIT BETTER!

Gwyn, I hope you get those hours reduced, my goodness that's ridiculous to expect that much of a person! I know just the ten hour days are wearing Andrea down and she's young!

Peggy, I hope you have a great time at Lauratta's party and have plenty of tissue on hand.

We're in the 30's today, might have some snow showers off and on, but I figure no matter how bad winter might get now - it'll be a short one! LOL

Annie, hope you get to relax a bit today - you have so much running to do all the time!

Merri, how's the weather in K-town today?

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good morning all!!!

It was 50 for our walk today but the wind was blowing so it felt a little colder but nothing like the rest of you.

Jerry is going to a going away lunch today and I have Lauratta's going away party from 1:30 -3:30. I think Lauratta already started crying and she'll have the rest of us crying too.

we use turbo tax every year. I called my agency and asked that my hours for Saturday be reduced -- they told me that the group home requested one person for the whole shift and had to clear it with them. I had a conversation with another agency employee and she believes that this is not the truth. I will call again later on today.

That's the fun of these challenges. You can switch days or suit yourself and don't do any. There are no points given to anyone and no teammates to help support but you end up feeling better and having a clean kitchen or whatever.

Have fun with it, I am.

I used to do ours-- both kids--father in laws taxes,, then it got so hard,, and with us in WA,,not used to WA laws as of yet..

emoticon Kitchen floor nice and clean.

And it's funny, I just looked at "that" drawer tonight thinking it needed attention!

Got maybe an inch of snow today, Cleveland had three, so once again - we're on the lucky side.

I've used TurboTax - the online free version - to figure it all out and then fill out the forms and mail them myself. I didn't work on mine today - not in a big hurry to write them the check. LOL

Here's tomorrow's challenge right from Fly Lady

Your Mission for today is to declutter your plastic wraps and foil drawers, cabinets or shelves. We all have a spot that we keep these items and there is always one empty box in there and some lone baggies that are trying to escape. Toss the empty boxes, the rolls of plastic wraps that are too stuck together to work, and those strays that you are not sure if you should use them or not. Purge them!!

If it's a small area finish the rest of the space. You'll get to bend down or reach up Try to touch your toes a few times too.

Morning All;

Very gray here - waiting for the snow to come. Supposed to get some today and then again tomorrow morning. I don't think it will be that much in inches - maybe 6 total? Have already been to the store and got all my grocery shopping done for the week.

Saturday I got all my guy's tax papers setup for him. He has an appt @ the accountant this week - so at least he's set.

Sunday I spent time with Ben (GC), really enjoyed being with him. Then stayed home and watched the SB. It was a good game and so glad Denver won....especially for Peyton.

Steph, congrats on the award - good for you.

Joyce, so glad Andrea passed the test - she sure is taking lots of positive steps.

Char, that cold has really hit you hard. Hope you aren't pushing yourself by going into work, believe me it's not worth it. Miserable way to lose weight!

Gwyn, did you get your hours squared away? Hopefully no more long days. Vegetable gardens are nice - especially tomatoes!

Peggy, well I did my kitchen floor on Friday - so that's done! In fact I really scrubed the whole place - I was on a roll!!

Trudy, you're ambitious today! 2 hrs of exercise AND washing the floor!

Annie, I too gathered my tax papers last week. I do my own taxes - I use TurboTax, it's really very easy and the software is only about $50. Sure cheaper than an accountant. Have you considered trying that?

Merri, your weather sounds like ours. Oh well, it is February and we've been fairly lucky so far...(except for that 30 inches).

Good morning from K-town where we are having a dusting of snow. It is 30 degrees and cloudy...

Not much going on here today. Same ole thing...I think Mr Ken is going with his brother to put in some light sockets over by the apartments that his brother manages...

CHAR, I HOPE YOUR COLD GETS BETTR TOO SO YOU CAN HAVE YOUR SURGERY.

I like the challenge today as I was just going to get the vacuum out and do a few rooms and mop the kitchen and bathroom floors....

Joyce, Oh my, that had to be somewhat scary to let the little one go with the dad. I know sometimes we just assume things and hope it is for the best...

Hi everyone...

Trudy we're supposed to be really cold here this week, too! Can't complain - we've been SO lucky!

Char, wish you'd get to feeling better!!

Gwyn, that would be awesome if you can plant some veggies - nothing better than walking out into the yard and picking a fresh, warm tomato! YUM!

Peggy, I like the challenge - time to get out my Swiffer!

My day off - I slept in this morning - felt pretty good! LOL Have a great start to your week ladies!

Good morning!!
We have winter weather this week. Can't complain....but, I probably will!! (LOL)
Not any snow to speak of just really cold weather!
Heather!! So great to see you again!! Welcome back!!
Joyce, woohoo!! So happy for Andrea!! You're right she needs to let you know about JJ picking Aidyen up. That's kind of unnerving letting him go with out Andrea saying anything.
I didn't watch the game. I figured I'd see enough on the news to know what happened.
CHAR, I hope you're finally on the mend. You've really been through the wringer!
Peggy, I know you'll miss Lauretta. I hope you can see her when you travel north!
Thanks for the challenge Peggy!!
Annie, how fun that you know two of the Carolina Panther players.
I'm off to the Y this morning. I think I'll do 2 classes again. Then I'll still be home by 11:30 and will have 2 hours of exercise under my belt!! Then I'll get down on the kitchen floor and clean it!! (maybe... emoticon )
Everyone have a great day!!

Hi everyone!!!

We just saw the first score and the end of the game. We just kept checking to make sure that Denver was still winning.

We only saw a few commercials and didn't see any great ones.

This week I am following Fly Lady because they are cleaning the kitchen 15 minutes at a time.

For the challenge today let's clean the kitchen floor. Sweep, vacuum, dust or whatever you want. Let's fly around the floor and get up the crumbs that are hiding in the corners (well at least they are in my house)

On our way to Bagel King.

Heather, how AWESOME to see you here again - FINALLY! lol

Seriously gal, we miss you when you're gone!

Just got back from watching the super bowl at our daughter's apt. here in the complex. Was kinda rooting for Carolina, but I'm OK with the Denver win - think Peyton Manning is a class act. In all reality the score could have been lots worse!

Hope everyone had a great day. Good job on the weight loss Heather!!

Andrea said thanks to all of you for the good wishes - she is SO relieved to have that done!

Merri, I have the same issue, the "white coat" syndrome. Never used to and NO idea why all of a sudden it showed up! LOL I really like my doctor and it's been that way with the last two or three I've had. Crazy!

Gwyn, we don't have Farmer's Markets in the winter here either. I used to always grow my own veggies - really missing that being here in the apt. now. :-(

Peggy, I'm sure you'll miss Lauratta a lot when she moves! Will you be able to see her when you're in NY?

Went down with the kids at 7, brought them up here at 9 after all were awake. Andrea forgot to tell me JJ was picking Aiyden up at 9. I tried to call her to verify but she didn't answer. I left a message and sent a txt - nothing back yet. She's going to have to give me the office number there so I can reach her in case of an emergency. I'm assuming it was OK because he normally gets him on Sat. and we had the birthday party yesterday. Plus he told Andy that Andrea told him to get the car seat out of our car because his was in his Mom's car.

Going to Jim/Brenda's to watch the game tonight. I could just as easily check the score occasionally and watch something else - but it's kind of a tradition for everyone to watch it. I know Andrea wasn't happy - Kevin is coming to watch it with them and she'd rather go to a movie. LOL

Hi everyone!!!

It's in the 40's again. We're on our way to Church shortly and then it's Publix and home for some great rolls.

Lauratta is coming over for tilapia. She is leaving for CT on the 10th of March. Her kids are coming down to help her pack.

I am happy for Andrea!! and here in Minnesota there are no Farmer's Markets in the winter!! I think they may start in April or May -- Minneapolis and St. Paul have HUGE Farmer's markets.

Hi All!!!

this morning I went to the Farmers Market and then over to the Woman's Club to set up for our pot luck social for tonight. Yay I don't have to stay and clean up.

It's rainy and dreary out today.

SHE PASSED!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So happy and relieved!!! She just has to do the "on the floor" training which is only a formality since she's already filled in as manager. She'll have to do an "opening" and "closing" shift just to learn the particulars of that in case she's needed to fill in those shifts. Once this is all done, she'll get another pay raise! :-) Thanks for the good wishes everyone!!

Joyce, I just thought that maybe sometimes taking a test is so hard because it says TEST ....I can take my BP at home and it is just great...Go by the dr with a WHITE coat and I am done!!!!

They have actually had me go to a different dr just dressed in regular clothes and I am just fine.....That darn word TEST just really gets to a lot of people...

I am praying for Andrea today that she will be ok and pass it with flying colors... emoticon

good morning everyone:
CHAR:
so hope you get that cold gone..
and also,, Joyce the same with you,, since you have the kido's today..
Joyce:
I am sure Andrea has all the answers,, maby just that "it's a TEST" thing,,,.. hope this is the time to just get them from head to paper(( or internet/tablet )) in this day and age I am not sure HOW they take a test anymore .LOL
Trudy:
I keep forgetting to say CONGRATULATIONS on all the inches you have lost !! emoticon that is so great that the trainer is helping with that..
Gwyn:
hope they get your "hours" all straight... sometimes they seem to take advantage until you say NO MORE of those kind of hrs.

I remember when I started at BiMart,, since it is a 7 day a week job,, we were told we would get a full weekend off every 4 to 5 weeks,, I was into work almost 4 months and NO weekend off,, I asked my manager WHY? I didn't get a full weekend off,?, I was seeing fellow workers getting a full weekend about once a month.. Liz goes , because Annie you just kept working never complained or asked.. I go ,, OK Liz I would like a full weekend OFF,please.. so next schedule I got a full weekend.. LONG explaination for ,, guess we each just have to go to the "top" and nicely ASK..LOL

Peggy:
I ended up emoticon getting the yesterday challenge in,, due to we had 60 mph wind gusts and heavy rain yesterday,, I stayed inside and got the challenge done.

I also: started on Income Tax prep .. I had 2 paper bags , and threw away papers I had saved all year.. this a.m. went outside , no rain/wind, and burnt them...now to get all the paper work together, to give to the tax accountant,, I so wonder WHY? I do all this he just transfers it over , sends it via internet in,, charges $250. I do almost ALL the work..LOL

Good morning,
It's a beautiful sun shiny morning here. It's cold but, we're not shoveling!! (LOL)
CHAR, I HOPE YOUR COLD GETS BETTER REALLY SOON!!
Joyce, I hope Andrea passes this time. Some people really do have trouble when it comes to the actual test. Once she gets over this hurdle things will be better for her.
I'm going to do laundry and work on an afghan today. Nothing much.
Everyone have a great day!!

Good Morning!

Char, sorry you aren't feeling lots better yet! :-( My cold seems better this morning, will keep up with the Dayquil and Nyquil for the weekend though.

It's 25 here this morning, but the sun is coming up, so it'll be a nice day. Plan to get a walk in later.

Andrea's bringing the kids up in a bit - she has Madison and Thomas, too. She's taking the manager's test again this morning. If she fails this time, she can't re-take it for six months. Praying she does well! She studied with the general manager the other night and she said she doesn't understand why Andrea hasn't passed because she knows the material! Guess it's that "test taking" thing.

Later this afternoon we have to go to great granddaughter Raena's birthday party. She's the one I made the kitties in a row afghan for. It's at the "Jump Place" in Streetsboro. The kids love to go there - us, not so much. LOL

I have some more good news. Tom- the Artistic director of the theater was at auditions last night. He pulled me aside and wanted to let me know something special.
On the wall of the theater are two plaques. One is from the Tom Eubanks award.(Not sure what it's for)..ha ha...the other is the "Bob Decker Heart of Theatre Award" For Excellence in technical proficiency & Dedication. Well BOB DECKER picked me as the winner this year and my name will be posted up on the plaque. AHHH I'm so excited!!! Bob Decker is the man who builds all the sets...great guy..really nice! I just am so excited.

Last Friday night show...Sat night show and Sunday show....then I get a break!! (NOT).

I'm producing MEN OF TORTUGA...rehearsals start March 8th...so we'll have to do auditions for that soon. My brother is in that one.....so it will be fun to be part of it!

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Hi everyone!!

How old is Liam now Peggy? They sure do grow fast - we see that with Aiyden and Adalyn and of course your Adin and Trudy's Leo! My goodness, so hard to believe how much they've all grown.

CHAR, SORRY YOU'RE STILL NOT FEELING WELL. I HIT THE NYQUIL LAST NIGHT AND ALREADY HAD A DOSE OF DAYQUIL THIS MORNING!

Barb, I soooo hope you get the job! I love those "winter wonderland" snows! We had about half an inch overnight. It's in the 20's here, but the sun is out, so the snow will be gone pretty fast.

Gwyn, that is just plain ridiculous to schedule someone for a 14 hour day without asking first! I wouldn't even think it would be allowed! WOW!

Merri, hope DD likes the new job! I know Andrea is working 10 hour days four days a week, then two days at the salon. She only has Mondays off each week. Cracked me up, my daughter Brenda and her DH have the grandkids temporarily until the next court hearing when they should be going back to their mother. Brenda told me yesterday that she and Jim are going to a motel tonight for a "kid free weekend!" Andrea will watch the kids tomorrow and we'll have them Sunday (and no, she didn't ask, she told me!) What the heck - a "kid free" weekend! She's only had them a month - I have Andrea's kids EVERY weekend, even though Brenda is home on Sundays. I may have to remind her of that! LOL

I went down to Andrea's at 7:15 this morning, the kids slept till 9. Brought them back up here and got them both fed and settled. We brought Aiyden's old exersaucer over from the house and cleaned it up real good for Adalyn to use. She loves it. Keeps her entertained for awhile and frees up some time for me. I put her on the floor on a blanket some, too, but she's already rolling all over the place! LOL

Trudy, you sure keep yourself busy! That's awesome you have so many activities going on. I just heard there's a Y here in town - might have to check that out in my "spare" time! LOL

Good morning from K-town where it is only 25, but feels so much warmer with the sun out.

Mr Ken does go for his third B12 shot today. We are thinking that with this blood count so low, it just might sometime for his body to be built up too. Still no call from the family dr and he had his blood work done on Jan 28 or 29th.....What the heck is wrong with these family drs today anyway?

Our baby DD started her new job today at our really big Amazon. She only has to go 5 1/2 miles too....It was fun to watch her pack her lunch last night. Oh yes, she is only 54 LOL Our DD works ten hours a day and four days a week. She used to work 14-17 hours a day at the prison..

Take care all of my dear friends and stay warm and healthy.....

Wow Barb! I think it sounds like the interview went very well!! 90 minutes and 3 managers?
Enjoy you day at home!! Not fighting the weather!
Gwyn, yes, I'd be speaking with the scheduling people also! Maybe some people like the long hours but, you should be asked first!!
Good challenge Peggy!! Thank you! Enjoy Bagel King.
CHAR, SO SORRY YOU'RE STILL SICK. I HOPE THE MEDICINE HELPS SOON!
I am going to water aerobics this morning, then home for a shower and back to the Y for coloring and working with the trainer. I'll be glad to get home at 2:30.

Morning All;

Snowing here today. We're only supposed to get a couple of inches. It's big flakes, heavy snow - but oh so pretty. Trees are already coated and it looks like a winter wonderland.

Opted not to go to the gym today, didn't feel like cleaning off my car and battling the roads - so I did a walking dvd today.

Peggy, today is my cleaning day, so I'll be getting lots of up & down exercise in.... emoticon

Gwyn, that's too many hours! Before they schedule you that many hours they should ask if you want it - not just assume.

Char, looks like you're sick! Take care of yourself.

just to say hi. +I am calling the staffing supervisor today when she gets in. This Sunday they have me scheduled for a 12 hour day. then next Sunday they have me at 14 hours. yes, that's right -- from 8 am to 10 pm. When I called the person who gave me the schedule, she said "some people like doing that many hours". don't ask what I think about that answer!!

Liam really got so big. He was just going to sleep so I have to go back tomorrow to hold him

How about for tomorrow's challenge we sit on a kitchen chair and bend over and clean out a cabinet or drawer. You can get up and down and get some chair exercise in.


Have a great day tomorrow. It's Bagel King and grocery shopping day tomorrow.

Hi All;

I was up early today, was at the laundromat by 6:30! So all the laundry was done & put away by 9:00.

I had my interview today. Was supposed to be a 30 min interview...well that turned into a 90 min interview, with 3 managers in the room. Wow - talk about being on the 'hot seat'. I think it went well - at least when I left I had a good feeling, now we'll see. That's the hardest part - waiting.

Peggy, you won't believe this one....this morning Sadie lost one of her toys under the entertainment center. I had to get the fly swatter to dig it out - and along with it came all the dust & hairballs. So I put a swiffer pad on the fly swatter and really cleaned out under it. Now in reading the chats I see what you posted for today's challenge!!! emoticon I ALREADY DID IT!!! Totally unbeknownst to me!!

Joyce, it's so sad about the social workers - this is exactly why so many kids end up falling between the cracks!

Gwyn, oh no - at least you were home when you got stuck and not out someplace! And there's no need to apologize. There's no rules here - you can post a single sentence, or a book - doesn't matter, we're all friends.

Trudy, thanks for the thoughts - maybe they helped?!

Merri, sounds like your weather is getting cooler

Char, if you weren't sick enough before - once you get the pharmacy bill you're really sick!

No need to apologize Gwyn - we're just glad to have you participating. :-)

The court hearing was postponed till the 16th, not that anyone from the agency let Brenda know. Jennifer called the courthouse herself to find out! I guess Brenda has decided not to take the two kids with us to Disney. After lots of soul searching she came to the conclusion that it would send the wrong signal to Madison - that she was being "rewarded" for her bad behavior. She said she'll put it to Madison that if she can be on her good behavior between now and July, she'll take them to Myrtle Beach when we all go. It's a much less expensive trip.

The rooms here are all carpeted except the kitchen area and bathroom, but I figure I can get down and clean out under my coffee table and the cabinet in the bathroom. :-)

Boy, Aiyden got up in a mood this morning. He's usually so easy going, but he woke up crying and he's been ornery all day. Whew! Don't know if he was having a bad dream or what.

Thinking of you Barb and hoping we hear GOOD news!

Annie, love that you got the BOGO on the birthday cakes - what fun!

CHAR, HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER REAL SOON!

good morning team. I would like to apologize -- once again -- because I feel like I talk about myself and never make comments to others.

Good morning from K-town where we have a cooler 22 degrees.

Joyce, Why does our lives have to be to up in the air all of the time? That is so bad that Brenda has to have to go through all of this. I sure hope all goes well tomorrow and than maybe she can plan her trip to Disney. I know she wants to help so much, but than having to put her family on hold isn't the best for anyone...

Good Morning,
It's cold but clear here this morning. Yesterday was so gloomy and windy. Totally miserable.
Joyce, I'm glad the situation with the kids is getting settled. It's probably not all that much of a stretch that the agency doesn't know when the hearing is.
Peggy, I'm loving your challenges!! It's fun to do something different and get some things around the house done. I cleaned out a closet that I've been avoiding!!
Annie, what a nice deal you got on Dawn's birthday cake!! And your can fund is already growing!
Barb, I do send positive thoughts.
Merri, how are you?
Good morning Gwyn and CHAR!!
Everyone have a great day!

Hi everyone!

Boo on getting stuck Gwyn! We're back to the 30's today, but still no snow, other than flurries.

Peggy, I think everyone is really enjoying your unique spin on the challenges! I know I am!!

Babysitting 7-5 today, so not much else will get done, needless to say.

Hi everyone!!

I don't know about the whole month Joyce, Does everyone want me to keep on finding places to bend and stretch and walk to?

Going to WW's, a meeting at noon, the dentist at 2 for a cleaning and x rays and I got out of a meeting at 6:30 at the clubhouse by having a different meeting here at my house at 6:30. At least I don't have to leave home.

I'm off to eat breakfast and ride the bike before WW's no walk on Jerry's Master Gardener days.

Peggy, you are cracking me up! Do we have you for the whole month? emoticon

emoticon I rearranged and dusted some family photos on my living room wall and I washed the bedroom windows, which if you know my height - required some stretching!!

Andy's follow up went well - all his numbers are good! emoticon His appt. was at 9, mine was down the road a little for 9:40, but I had to register at 9:30. So rather than take a chance on the timing, I had Andy drop me off at mine and I walked around the building and parking lot for half an hour! It was almost 60. Pretty windy, but still a gorgeous day for February! Got the mammogram out of the way. emoticon

Brenda still doesn't know if the hearing for the grandkids is tomorrow or the 16th. Was supposed to be tomorrow, but Jennifer got a letter about a hearing the 16th. The social workers don't seem to know what's going on. Said they'll assume it's tomorrow, until they find out differently. Jennifer was able to visit the kids at Brenda's tonight instead of having to take them to the agency. Two workers were there to give the apt. another walk through and sort of supervise the visit. They've agreed she can visit at Brenda's whenever it's mutually agreeable and the agency doesn't need to be involved. By the time everything gets sorted out - they'll be back home! emoticon

It's kind of creating an issue though because Brenda is trying to get the Disney trip finalized and if the kids aren't going back home, it will mean another room and more passes and we need to get that handled since Brenda's friend's mother can get it all half price for us. Oh well.....it'll work out, always does.

OK since you seem to be liking these, how about for tomorrow we get down on the floor.

Be sure and have something nearby so that you can get up again. When was the last time you dusted under things like your dresser or china closet. I just reached under my china closet yesterday and the dust and cobwebs were thick.

Morning All;

Well it's raining today, started in the middle of the night and is due to continue all day.

I woke up this morning and just didn't feel like going to the gym - so I rolled over and slept another hour! I normally don't do that, so I guess my body was just telling me enough right now.

Peggy, I have 6 small shelves that I keep my photos on, they really need dusting - but I don't because I have to climb on the couch to reach them, take everything down, dust & then put it all back! But....for you I'll do that today!!

Annie, it's so sad that the towns constantly have their hands out for money. Bad enough the amount of taxes that are paid, but then they have to nickel & dime you for everything.

Char, hopefully you can keep your appt and not have to cancel. With the amount of money that's paid for insurance it should cover the total bill not just the 'standard' bill. Well since your eyesight is so bad I'm sure what will be done will be a great improvement.

Gwyn, if I understood you correctly you did that long of a ride just to find out it was closed? How miserable. Hopefully you decided to just stay inside today, rest & relax - maybe read a book.

Joyce, another Bob Evans bfast! Nice treat after getting the mammo.

Merri, it is nice to have a relaxing time - always need to recharge your batteries for the times when it is hectic.

Trudy, good for you - you lost inches!! So I guess that trainer is worth it! My interview is late tomorrow afternoon - keep your fingers crossed!

Good morning,
Gwyn, if you're trying to decide whether to go out or not....you probably shouldn't!!
Be safe!
Joyce, enjoy this down day and breakfast at Bob Evans!! Can't beat it!
Peggy, please do think about we unfortunates!! (LOL)
Annie, it sounds like you made a good decision about the shed. And saved money!! Win win!!
CHAR, I'M GLAD YOU'RE ABLE TO HAVE SURGERY TO HELP WITH YOUR EYE SIGHT AND THAT THE DR IS WILLING TO TAKE INSURANCE PAYMENT AS PAYMENT IN FULL.
I THINK IT'S TOO BAD ALL HEALTH CARE IN THE COUNTRY IS SO HIGH AND OUT OF REACH FOR MANY PEOPLE.
HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER SOON AND DON'T HAVE TO RESCHEDULE THAT SURGERY.
Merri, I hope you didn't get hit too bad with the storm.
We, like Joyce, had a lot of rain last night. Rolling thunder. Very unusual for Feb.
It's quite a bit colder today. Only suppose to be in the mid 30's but back on the rise for the weekend.
I measured yesterday and was I ever shocked. I'm down 9 1/2 inches!! The main place I lost is that fat pouch I have under my waist!! WooHoo.....I signed up for another 10 sessions with the trainer. I really think most of it is that I haven't eaten out much since the first of the year. I haven't lost a lot of weight. Only a few pounds.
I'm doing the volunteer work this afternoon so no Y for today.
I will stretch though Peggy!! I have several high places that need attention!! Thanks for the challenge.
Hi Barb, did you have the face to face interview yet? Good luck.
Hi to everyone!! Have a great day.

Good morning where we have another balmy morning of 35 degrees. The snow missed us yesterday. Sue & I are happy campers....

We don't have anything planed for us to do today. No dr visit until the end of the month. A nice quiet month it looks like.

All we have to do today is go to the bank and go across the street and pay our Sears bill at K-Mart...Come home and have our left over turkey Mr Ken made yesterday. The one once again from Butterball in the little plastic bag...

Peggy, Today I am going to have Ken help me move things on the two shelves up above the windows in our bedroom. He made a nice shelf above both windows. Maybe we can even get the one in the living room too....

Good Morning!

Char, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well! I have a bit of a head cold - caught it from the kids, I imagine. Not terrible though. Good luck with your surgery, and what a shame on the insurance! Disappointing to say the least!

We're at 56 here Gwyn, had lots of rain overnight. How much snow did you end up with? One of my friends in South Dakota was sending pics of hers. Told her she could keep it!

Andy has his follow up appt with the doctor this morning and I have my mammogram - then off to Bob Evans for breakfast and home to RELAX! Long, long day with the kids yesterday and the rest of the week will be pretty much the same, except for Saturday.

It is 68 this morning and cloudy. We had a dark walk but lots of streetlights.

On the way to Bagel King and will eat slowly this morning so I can be thinking of all of you.

Nothing on the agenda today but I think I'll work on the closet and under the bed in my studio.

bye for now
