Good Evening all.............

Glad the sting is getting better Barb!

Annie, that has to be a huge relief to have the beach house on the market! Yaaaay!

Peggy, like the Fly Lady for tomorrow - definitely one I need to do!

Fairly easy day today. Adalyn was at Brenda's a lot, so mostly had Aiyden and he ended up spending the night. For some reason he got really emotional when Andrea came to take him home. Just really wanted to be here, so naturally we gave in. LOL

Brynlee has started rolling over now. Aspyn is really close. Brynlee will be 6 months old tomorrow and Adalyn will be 2 on Thursday. Time marches on..........

Hi All;

I attempted to post on here last night, but was using my IPad and it just wouldn't cooperate.

I too saw the eclipse, everyone in the office piled out to the parking lot to watch it. Alot of people had glasses so we shared them. I actually put the glasses up to my camera lense and was able to get a few pictures - really neat. We only had 74% totality, so no darkness - but still it was something to see.

Merri & Ken - Happy belated Anniversary - 58 years, how wonderful! You don't hear of that too often anymore. As far as 'serving your man'....that's how I too was raised, I guess it's old-fashioned by today's standards - but my Jerry does the same for me. I've heard you say that Ken worries about you - so it works both ways. Obviously you're doing something right to be married and happy for so long.

Joyce, I too enjoy my coffee outside - something peaceful about it. A fresh new day.

Trudy, sounds like you're enjoying your company - good for you.

Sharon that cross stitch sounds beautiful - have to see a picture of it!

Peggy, yes I was on the bike when I got stung. Today's the first day that the redness is gone and it doesn't hurt - took long enough!

Hi to Gwynn and Roz

Annie, bet you're glad the eclipse is over so you can have your streets back! Pictures of Portland were crazy - people all over.

Wednesday is Anti-procrastination Day. We are going to straighten up the floor of your closet! Are the shoes piling up and you can't find two shoes that are a like? Do you think you have too many shoes? While you are lining up your shoes; pick two pair to give away or throw away. The next time you are looking for the pair of shoes that match your outfit, you will smile because you will be able to find them without getting down on your hands and knees. This will put another smile on your face and keep your hair from getting messed up.

Hi everyone.....

Merri, that's too funny about the "gift" from your neighbor! If he only knew........

Sharon, I would love to see a picture of that Nativity, too! What a project that must have been.

Peggy, enjoy your Hands in Motion. What are you working on now? I'm in between, finished all the baby cocoons I needed and made three chemo caps for that young man. Should try the mermaid tail afghan GD asked for, but I haven't motivated myself yet.

Trudy, glad you're having such a good time with your friend! Sounds so relaxing to sit on the porch and visit. I've started drinking my first coffee out on our balcony and just watching the planes fly over and the neighbors come and go. Gets too hot later in the day but we're supposed to cool down to the lower 80's by the end of the week. We've been upper 90's for a couple of weeks.

Already have Aiyden and Adalyn here. I found the video of ME getting the ice bucket, plus one of Andrea, Austin and Brenda. Was going to show them to Aiyden, but as soon as I even mentioned it he started with the "attitude", so I quickly dropped the subject. LOL

Gwyn, hope you have a good day today!

All of you have a great day!

Good morning,
My friend and I and another friend sat on my deck and shared 2 pair of eclipse glasses. It was great. We had 98% totality. Fantastic!!
Joyce, I wouldn't be surprised if the eclipse did affect children.
Peggy, enjoy hands in motion. That sounds like a fun thing to do. A friend of mine wanted to do something like that a year or so ago but, it just didn't catch on. Maybe I'll try it again this year.
We're meeting my niece for lunch and then going out for a steak dinner. No cooking today.
I fixed pork tenderloin and green beans on the grill last night. It was so good.
Everyone have a fantastic day!!

Good morning from a cooler K-town. It is only 71 and they are saying a high around 80!!!

Oh yes, the mean neighbor and side kick went some where yesterday before noon. He was being really sneaky...Well, that got my attention than...I did see a suitcase or two go in the back of the truck...What a lovely day LOL...They must be still gone as I don't see their garbage out this morning....What a nice anniversary gift they gave us without even knowing it!!!!

We had hamburgers on the grill and each had an ice cream cone in the afternoon...A nice quiet day here...There were mostly clouds...but I do believe it did get somewhat darker tho for a bit...Boy, did the sun ever come out later and got really hot and humid...

Joyce, That was so nice of the maintenance man to share with all of you...They did say that in your area it was going to be just great there...

I think I need a little bit more "girl time" here too. I was just noticing yesterday how much Mr Ken depends on me to get things for him...I know I have done that way too much since he got hurt back in 1981...I just thought all wives did that LOL...

Yesterday we had to go and get a new cable box...Oh my goodness what a project Mr Ken can make it be...I had to tell him where to find the sliders for the tv to be moved out...Than find those little things to tie up the cable wires...Than I might as well dust down the blinds as long as every thing was moved out of the way...It just seems to much easier for me to go and get him the things than see him try and get up with is sore hip and back....

Good morning everyone!! It's cooler this morning only 72.

Be sure and take a picture to show us of your Nativity. Isn't it great to have it off to the framers?

I go to the dentist at 9 and Jerry goes at 1. We swapped times so that I could have Hands in Motion this afternoon.

I'm looking forward to sitting and crocheting or knitting. Plus drinking some good tea with a couple of friends.

Yesterday was cloudy and it stayed nice and cool. I didn't watch the eclipse at all. I did my 60 minutes of walking and 3 loads of laundry. Tina was here to see if we could get our email problem solved and then we took a cross stitch design over to the framer so I can have it by Christmas this year. It is a huge 5 piece nativity set that took me several years to stitch. I am anxious to see how it looks when framed. It is about 5 feet long. I got the bags of grass clippings out to the boulevard for garbage day on Wednesday and did few other little projects. That's it for me.

Today is the day to attack the clothes pile. Now you all know what I am talking about. This pile is either on a chair, on top of the hamper, dresser or at the foot of your bed. Set your timer for 15 minutes and grab some hangers or start folding. While you are doing this do not hang up or fold something that you hate! This is the time to let it go!! If you do not love it, send it right out the door!

Hi everyone.....did you all see the eclipse today? Pretty good view here in SC. We were just watching it on the TV coverage, but then the maintenance man here said he had glasses if we all wanted to come down and see it. So we did for a bit. I thought the film of it at the Grand Tetons was amazing on TV!

I guess traffic was crazy around here, hotels were booked up, etc. Andrea said they did $800 in sales in an hour and a half at Burger King before 1:00!

They kept saying the effect it could have on animals - I wonder about kids? Boy were Aiyden and Adalyn both in a mood right after it was done! LOL

Andy's film of his ice bucket challenge a few years ago came up in his memories and oh my goodness Aiyden was SO mad at me for dumping ice on his Pa! He was literally screaming at me and I couldn't make him understand it was all in fun. Wouldn't you know I couldn't find the one where Andy had done it to me just a day or two before! Finally Brenda found some on YouTube to show him and he began to see the humor in it. Whew!

Good Morning Everyone!!



Happy Anniversary Merri and Ken!

We're going to watch the eclipse on the news channel here. SC is a great place to be for it, but we didn't get the glasses or anything, so not taking chances. Especially with Aiyden, because no matter what we told him, he'd be one to think he could look anyhow.

We took him out to ride about six laps around the building this morning before it gets too hot. We're excited - going to cool down to the low 80's the end of the week. WooHoo!

Trash man came around 10 and Aiyden was SO excited - it was his regular driver. The guy waved like crazy at him, but he didn't blow the horn. But that's OK. They haven't seen each other in about a month.

Sorry about the bee sting Barb - does it feel OK today?

Gwyn, isn't it the truth that company motivates us for cleaning??

Peggy, enjoy your research.

Annie, hope the traffic isn't awful there today. Bet you're staying home!

Roz, boy does time fly, eh? 9 years old already??? Wow!

Hope all of you have a great day!!

Good Morning friends,
It is somewhat overcast here ,but after a long while, I did manage to walk for half an hour this morning and, met three friends on their walk also, we always stop and chat but walk in opposite directions. There was a brief shower as soon as I got into the house..

Merrie------Congratulations and may God continue to bless your marriage., and may you both celebrate many more wedding anniversaries.

Peggy-------My oldest grand girl is now 9 years old and doing very well at school . She goes to Standard III ( Your Grade III ) in September.

I think I'll just stay in today and observe the effects of the eclipse. Won't be looking at the sun though.

Have a blessed day everyone.
Much Love,
Roz.

Good morning from a very cloudy Mon morning..It is 71 and high 80 or so...

Well, if the clouds stay here, we may not see much of the eclipse I think...Only time will tell...

Today Mr Ken & celebrate our 58th anniversary...Where did the time go? It doesn't feel that long at all...but than Mr Ken of course has to say it feels like way longer than that..Men!!!

I don't think we are doing anything today tho...We had breakfast yesterday morning with our family here in town...That is enough. Oh yes, Mr Ken & I did our thing that we do every year. When we went to get cards for the two grand kids....we each found an anniversary card for us too...Than put them back...

Good morning,
Well, the eclipse day has arrived!! Are any of you going to see it? My friend brought two pair of glasses and we'll see 93% of it from my deck. So, we can have lunch and watch if we want too!!
Went to my niece's for dinner last night. She was going to fix burgers and grilled vegs. She went through her freezer on Sat. and decided to have rib eyes instead!! It was such a nice dinner. Her parents and daughter/sil were there. Nice evening!
Barb, so sorry your got stung. Bee stings really do burn.
Gwyn, yes, it does help get the house cleaned up when you have company!!
Sharon, nice of you to clean behind the neighbors garage. Good deed!!
Joyce, glad you didn't have a hard day yesterday.
Roz, I'm with you, I don't like to drive at night any more. I just don't have to do it very often so, it gets harder. Maybe I should do it more, so that it doesn't bother me.
Peggy, enjoy your day going through historical records.
I'm going to fix pork tenderloin on the grill today. Should be good.
Everyone have a good day.

Good morning everyone!!! We're back from our walk and on the way to Bagel King.

I'm going down to the woman's club and sort thru some historical records.

that was nice of you Sharon and now you have a better view.

I've been cleaning lately and putting things right back where they belong. My desk has been neat for 3 or 4 weeks now. I can't believe it.

Yesterday was a good day weatherwise. It was a lovely 79 degrees and very low humidity. I did my 60 minutes of walking and got outside and cleaned out a horrible patch of weeds in the neighbors yard behind his garage. The were about 6 feet high and since he has had a problem with his shoulder and arm after an accident I got tired of looking at it and cleaned it out. It was coming through my fence and hanging into my yard. He is such a nice guy I just figured it would help him too. I also did some things around inside and felt like I had accomplished something so it was a good day.

Hi All;

A nice weekend, sorry it is over so soon. The weather was perfect, was supposed to rain on Saturday, just got very cloudy and then cleared up nicely. Today was sunny and great.

Saturday stayed home, did pork chops on the grill for dinner - turned out really good.

Today went for a nice ride and a late lunch. Only down side was I got stung by a bee. Boy did that burn! At least I think it was a bee, got stung by something. Hit my arm and even tho I quickly brushed it off, it was too late - I felt the sting.

Another weekend gone and now a new work week is upon me. I have to stop facing these weeks with dread. I'm lucky that I have a job, so need to concentrate on that.

Zone 4: Mission #1 Monday



Today I want you to spend 15 minutes getting rid of anything that does not belong in your bedroom. Things that have gotten thrown in a corner, on a chair or even the floor. The things that you almost don't even see because they have just become part of the room, get it out! If it does not belong there then out it goes!

This does not mean that you have to spend three hours in your bedroom, do what you can do for 15 minutes.

PS. Don't forget that if you miss a mission in your emails you can always get them at our website www.FlyLady.net and click on the Launch Pad.



Zone 4: Mission #2 Tuesday



Today is the day to attack the clothes pile. Now you all know what I am talking about. This pile is either on a chair, on top of the hamper, dresser or at the foot of your bed. Set your timer for 15 minutes and grab some hangers or start folding. While you are doing this do not hang up or fold something that you hate! This is the time to let it go!! If you do not love it, send it right out the door!




Zone 4: Mission #3 Wednesday



Wednesday is Anti-procrastination Day. We are going to straighten up the floor of your closet! Are the shoes piling up and you can't find two shoes that are a like? Do you think you have too many shoes? While you are lining up your shoes; pick two pair to give away or throw away. The next time you are looking for the pair of shoes that match your outfit, you will smile because you will be able to find them without getting down on your hands and knees. This will put another smile on your face and keep your hair from getting messed up.




Zone 4: Mission #4 Thursday


This week, we have been tackling clutter in our bedrooms. So, today we are going to clean off the nightstands! Get the tissues, cups and stuff that has piled up, toss and put away. Then grab a feather duster or dust rag and dust the surface. Place a pretty candle or picture there. Something that is new to that spot that you love to see.

Waking up and not seeing a pile of things on the nightstand and a pile of clothes will make your morning a little brighter!




Zone 4: Mission #5 Friday



Today is the last day in the Master Bedroom. Take 15 minutes to declutter your dresser. Get the things off the top of your dresser that you have placed there that you were going to put away later. Later is now. Take the time to take care of this; it really makes a great difference.

Annie - that is pure craziness that so many people are crowding in there to watch the eclipse! I guess Jim's Dad said there'd be another one in 7 years and he'd wait for that. Considering he's elderly, not sure I would have made that choice. LOL

Merri, those young people were all so excited about the pass, put a smile in my heart. No hugs since there was a fence between us, but the smiles said it all.

Trudy, I'm sure you and your friend will have a wonderful time!

Have Aiyden and Adalyn already, Andrea works 12-5 today, a short day. Wouldn't be surprised if Brenda asks us to watch Aspyn so they can go for a bike ride. Or maybe they'll wait till she gets home when it's a little cooler. I'm just expecting it...........

Hope everyone has a great day!

good Sunday morning everyone:
Roz:
I don't like to drive at night anymore, either.. I do almost all the driving , and day time is just fine with me.. so glad you had a nice time with your GD..
Joyce:
That was so nice of you to give away that free ticket.. I am SURE the person was thrilled , to say the least..

heading to Church,, then not much going on today !! hope it stays that way..

I may talk with past neighbors via phone ,, there town was to get 30,000 people for the eclipse,, they NOW have 50,000... !! Since Prineville is so small of a town,, they blocked off some side streets to get "home town" workers to their jobs at the grocery stores, and TRY and get tankers in for gas stations.. NUTS...Maybe some of you saw Prineville on GMA !! that was the BIG news there !!

Good Sunday morning to all of my dear friends: It is 67 right now and is suppose to get into the low 80's...

Our DGD is having us meet them and our DD & SIL here in town for her birthday which is the 23rd....Today is her brother's birthday. I wish he was in town too...These are the two grand kids that we took care of since they were born while mom & dad worked...The time went by way too fast tho...Alot of good memories...

Joyce, Oh that had to be so nice to give someone a pass to get in. That is such a good feeling when you share like that too...I wish I could have been there to see the look on the other persons face...Did you get a hug or two? I think so many more people are hugging now and than to see all of this violence on tv too. So darn sad...

Peggy, when I figure out my camera and how to post one I will do it. Right now I am busy trying to catch up outside and then will work on figuring it out.
Yesterday was sunny, 83 and humid. I did my 60 minutes walking and then did the weed whacking around the house and fence and garage. I cleaned the bird baths and fed the birds and squirrels. I did do a few little things in the house too.

Annie---------Glad you had a safe drive there and back. Although we are a small island I do not drive long distances and even do not drive at nights.

I had my oldest grand daughter spend the last two days with me. Although she attended VBS for half day she enjoyed herself and was glad to meet new and old friends at VBS. You see her sister has CP and it really stresses her out at times so it's always good for her to interact with other children as well.

We went to the beach yesterday evening and did she enjoy herself. I manage to do a little swimming while she built her sand castle but it was fun for both of us,

Have a blessed time of day or night everyone.
Stay blessed!
Roz.

Hope you didn't hit any huge backup Annie.

Had a good day at Dollywood. Used our bring a friend free passes for Jim and Brenda. Austin was able to go and took Sam in free. Andrea had to work so I found someone to use her free pass. They were SO tickled. Makes me feel good. Can't see wasting it. Saved them 75.

Dolly was in the park today and apparently in a quick parade, but we missed it. No one said what time or where in the park. It was hot today so we stayed back in the shaded area. Adalyn got sick on the way over so didn't want to risk rides today.

Jim's Dad isn't coming tomorrow after all. I know he's disappointed. But next weekend when they go to Myrtle his son Adam might fly down. Brenda's not thrilled, she thought they'd have an "alone" weekend. Lol. No pity from me! emoticon

Yesterday was cloudy in the morning and then sunny and steamy in the afternoon. Temps didn't get all that hot but it was so muggy and humid. I did my 60 minutes of walking and a lot of little things around the house. I got groceries with Tina when she got done work. Not much to talk about. I did get a few stitches in on the new project so that was good. Have a good weekend.

good Fri morning,, everyone:

got up early and did the Fri grocery specials.. I feel bad for my DS as she has maculardegeneration and can not see so doesn't have a computer ,, as well as many of her older friends, and the Fri special is ONLY with a computer,, a JUST FOR YOU ,, with Safeway..

Barb:
yes that is illegal for price gouging,, BUT it is going on ALL over , nothing they can do .. motel rooms were canceled, after they found out they could charge $500 a night for , lets just say less than nice rooms..lol.. and people are PAYING that for a hole in the wall room..

news showed lines of cars,, over 30 mile BACK up,[ 2 lane road], to the town we used to live in Prineville Oregon.. it is 100% in view of the eclipse . We are like 94 % here .. but that is fine with me, that is all I need anyway !!

Sharon:
YOU go GIRL.. wow ,, that is something you do !! good for you..

Yesterday was humid here so hard to breathe but I did get my 60 minutes of walking in. I vacuumed and mopped the living room floor and cut and prepared edges of the fabric for my next project. I got the thread sorted and even put in a few stitches on it last night. Finished the other one too. I put away a few things that have been out of place for awhile so in general it was a good day.

Good Fri morning everyone. It is 68 here now and suppose to get to around 80....

Our DGD lives in South Carolina too. I wonder if she is going to get company....They are saying that we will have clouds on Mon...Mr Ken said that we don't need any special glasses as he has two welding helmets. We are going to look really cute out on our front porch with these on. Maybe even the mean neighbor might have to look over here...

talking about Walmart...you just can't beat their prices tho...I know I always get prepared for the larger bill too...That is where Mr Ken gets his $1 bread all of the time too...

We will see how long Rick likes being home....He has to start digging in on all of his car parts and start SELLING!!!! This will be interesting LOL....I know they will want to go shooting too....Mr Ken & Rick time shooting...Rick & mom time selling this stuff...

Good Morning!

It's 78 here with blue skies - another hot one ahead of us.

Back to "regular routine" feels good, doesn't it Peggy? Although I know you thoroughly enjoy the visits! You did great at WW considering the time at Disney!

Made 3 chemo caps yesterday for Brenda's friend's son. Found 2 patterns online, tried them both and like one better than the other. They sure work up quickly! They're just skull caps. On to something else now. Our one GD wants one of those mermaid tail afghans. Not really too thrilled at attempting that, but probably will one of these days. LOL

Barb, they've said to expect a lot of people coming in for the eclipse here. I think Jim's Dad is driving down from Ohio Sunday to be here for it.

Good morning everyone!! It's 76 and we're back from our walk and off to our regular schedule of Bagel King.

Barb, we only had soup at the bottom of the dish. There were 5 of us eating it. Dave didn't have much because he doesn't like ice cream that much.

I ordered a salad first.

Hi All;

Not too much going on today. yesterday I went and got my blood work done. Made my Dr's appt - couldn't get in until the middle of September. He only does 4 annual physicals and day and he's completely booked until the 12th. All the kids going back to school and sports need physicals. I didn't even think about that. Oh well, I'll just have to wait.

Peggy, I couldn't believe the size of that ice cream sundae! Did you guys finish it?

Trudy, enjoy the visit with your friend.

Joyce, Isn't it something you go out to pick up a few things - and no food, and the bill is so high! Sometimes I check the register tape before leaving the store thinking that the cashier has made a mistake - but no, it all really cost that much.

Annie, I can't believe those prices, that's price gouging which is illegal!! Anything to make a buck!

Alot of people in this area are going down to South Carolina to watch the eclipse - watch out Joyce - you guys might be crowded out!

I would like to see it - and will try, but if the weather doesn't cooperate, then I'll just watch it on TV like alot of other folk.

Everyone have a good weekend!

Annie, Oh my, what an experience for you and than to hear the language too. I just wonder when the couple next door go camping if he can keep his mouth shut than? I really doubt it tho....I wonder at church too...I know some guys told us that he is very loud at McDonald's when he goes there for free coffee on Tues and Fri....He tells them all that he can't hear and that is why he yells so much...

I think there are 2 mean neighbors in this world..well most likely way more,, !! yesterday at the VA,, I was setting in the waiting room, and this man, starting cursing,, his wife tried calming him,, he kept saying the staff was idots ( they came out for other patients ).. his wife was trying to stay calm,, whispered to him,, to "quiet down",, He turned to her and said::
{ I will beat your A__-} I started to jump out of my chair.. I glared at him,, he glared back at me..
I thought if he said ONE more thing to his wife I was going to get security,, I felt soooooo bad for her,,, then the nurse came out and took both he/she in.. oh MY what a jerk, he was so rude and rude to her..
just like your mean neighbor is to his GF..

Good morning from a light rain here..It is 72 and going to a low 80....We really needed the rain tho too..

Mr Ken did find a ham at Walmart. Not the one he usually gets tho. It seems like there just isn't any out there right now...I guess they are thinking more of the grill sort of meats right now...He is having a hard time finding nice oranges too. The ones from Sam's are good..but so darn hard to peal....A very think skin on them....

Joyce, I would like to see what your cancer hat is going to look like when you get it all done. What a nice thing to do for a nice young man...It has to be so hard at that age, let alone any age....I asked my brother Jim if he wears his hat in church...He said No, but everyone is so nice there anyway. His hair is coming back, but of course all gray. He has always colored his hair for years...

Oh yes, the mean neighbor took his trailer somewhere yesterday!!! The last time he did this was maybe in March or April. There must be something wrong with it either again or another new problem...So, the last time it was gone for over a good week...Maybe that long once again???

Rick is talking about coming home next week sometime. Mr Ken has an appointment with the back dr and Rick wants to go along with us. We have to find some solution for Mr Ken's back and hip/leg pain. The Tens unit does help some...

Hi everyone....

Glad you felt a little better Sharon, you were wise not to push it though.

Gwyn, hope you had a good swim! I've given up on a pool here for this year. I think they usually close them Labor Day anyhow. Sure would have been nice with the run of 90+ temps we've had!

Trudy, enjoy the visit with your friend!!

Nothing on the agenda for today. Tribe game was rained out last night, so a double header today. Might start on a chemo hat. Would like to make a few for Brenda's friend's son who is battling brain cancer. The tumor was removed and he's undergoing chemo and radiation. He has permission to wear hats to school so thought I'd make a couple to take up when we go to Ohio the end of the month.

My friend got here last night. We got back to the house after 11 and I went to bed about 15 till 12. Pretty late for me.!!
Annie, I hope the new Dr. can help with the VA insurance. Seems like a drastic step for one problem in 2 years. Goodness.
The price gouging is terrible. No need!! Everyone is going to sell more with so many more people. Goodness.
I hope you all have a great day today!!

Yesterday was a better day. I was pretty sore and tired so decided not to push it. I did my 60 minutes walking and got the kitchen floor vacuumed and mopped. Barb and I went out for dinner and had a nice visit. Thats all for yesterday.

Oh my gosh Annie, that's awful that people are taking advantage of others that way! I guess Charlotte is expecting a huge influx of people, too. Craziness! It's a big event, I get that, but to make it so commercial is just wrong. Actually it makes me think of some of the predictions in Revelations........hmmmmmm

yes Dollar Tree is "so far" sticking to just one dollar.. ours has lots of under $1.00 items too..

My sis called and said , "Annie , turn on the news channel 8,, the town we lived in before moving to the coast was on there,, Prineville Or is right in the "full" path of the eclipse.. The news showed the town with NO gas,, people are already heading that way,, and the town is OUT of gas,, ALREADY....The town only has a couple thousand people,, and are to get over 35,000 people to see the eclipse..

I then saw on the news.. and I think this is TERRIBLE.. people flying into Portland OR,, there are NO renter cars left.. a lady from Australia went to get her renter car, the rental co. told her , her first day=Fri. was $67.oo which WAS agreed upon.. and THEN Sat. Sun . Mon . Tue would be ====== $825.oo a DAY for car rental,, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! she told them to ,, KEEP the rental car,, she would WALK ,, to eastern Oregon to view it,, before she paid over $800 a day for a CAR rental.. what a RIP OFF.. shame on those people taking advantage of people flying in to see it..

I am with you Joyce,, we plan to just watch it on TV..!!

Oh so happy to hear that doctor's response! Way to go!!!!

LOL - even the "Dollar Stores" aren't Dollar anymore except for Dollar Tree!

Lots of people coming in to SC for the eclipse viewing too. Jim's Dad is thinking about coming down Sunday so he can see it here. I didn't get any glasses....will just watch it on TV I guess.

Hi everyone.

Hope you have a better day today Sharon.

Peggy, those are really good services Disney offers. That's good to know! I know how much you'll miss the family. That's always sad, isn't it? When do you go north again?

Merri and Annie - it sounds like you are both dealing with a lot of the medical issues with DHs. Glad I'm not dealing with anything major at the moment. Had enough recently, that's for sure. Hope Don and Ken are both feeling great real soon.

Merri, I'm sure you'll enjoy having DS there for awhile and I know how much he does for you. That's awesome.

Our friends are at Myrtle this week and they spotted five or six small sharks right where our condo it! Had the blue flag flying. Glad we're not there right now!!

Andy and I went to WalMart first thing this morning. Told Brenda I'd take the kids when we got back. I needed a lot of miscellaneous stuff and by the time they leave at night I'm too tired to go. Adalyn's birthday is next week, so I got her birthday stuff while we were there. Van needed new windshield wipers, I needed printer ink, laundry stuff, that sort of shopping trip.....not food except for a couple of things. Still spent $200! YIKES!

Been doing odds and ends things since we got back. Fired up the old computer so I could print some things off. Found a site for free early learning stuff for Aiyden so I can work with him to get him ready for pre-school or school. I looked for books at WM but couldn't find any there.

At least I feel like I'm accomplishing something today for a change! LOL

Merri:
last evening,,,DH's blood sugar was 43.. He tried to get out of the chair,, he dropped all the paper work he was reading,, got him Coke and glucose tabs right away,, Mr, Ken and Don sound about the same with blood sugars ,, ALL over the place..

Joyce:
'yes to the "people in charge".. just cuz DH had ONE good day, when they did his AIC ,, JUST THAT DAY,,, off they take him..
it IS what it IS...

everyone have a wonderful day...

They said traffic is starting to get bad in Oregon.. we are to have over a million people,, from ALL over the world coming in to see the eclipse.. I told DH I will need more time to get him to his Dr.s appointments,,
we were told to stock up on gas--food--water, and don"t even think of going to a restaurant,, they will all be full.. in certain towns in Oregon..OH MY

Morning everyone. It is a nice 70 degrees right now. I love it....

Annie, Mr Ken's blood sugar has been all over too lately. Yesterday it was on 68 (orange juice right away). Now today it is 144...I think that might be why he gets so tired too and has really doesn't want that much food either.

I think I am going to suggest to Mr Ken that he start getting his B12 shots each week again. That might be some of it. We only have to go around 8 miles to get them...He gets to be anemic really fast...

Our DS Rick is coming to visit for most of Sept. Maybe he can drive us to lower MI to see our DD Debbie's house she just bought. He is pretty good at talking Mr Ken to do things more than I can....

Mr Ken didn't find a nice ham yesterday...So, now today, to Walmart we go...When he has something on his mind....watch out....He will look and look until he finds this nice ham...Our turkey is all gone now....Oh yes, time for bananas and bread too...Mission is on...

We have actually gone to the hospital to see if they can figure out what all of these charges are for with no success at all...I can figure out more on our regular secondary ins on line there.

Good morning everyone it's 76 and we're packing up today and then going to take Jodi, Dave

and Adin's suitcase up to the check in place. They have a stand outside the building where

you check your bags for the plane. They take your luggage right to the plane and at noon

they take the bus to the airport and we drive home.

We go to breakfast as soon as we check their bag and then we'll look in a few stores.

It's always sad when they go home.

Sorry that you weren't feeling so good yesterday Sharon and good luck at the dentist Gwyn.

Annie that is really a bummer.

Yesterday I did my 60 minutes of walking but had a bad breathing day so took it easy. Slept off and on in chair and got a little reading done and just a little cross stitching. Today will be better.

LOVE the pictures Peggy! OMG that dessert looks absolutely lethal! Were you all able to finish it up?

I can't believe what a handsome young man Adin is becoming! You'll need a step stool for pics with him soon!

Looks like fun at the Japanese restaurant. We used to have Courtney's birthday dinner at the Wasabi Restaurant in Beachwood. Lots of fun!

Barb, I hope you're feeling better tomorrow! Good timing on the bloodwork, though.

Annie, hope DH feels better soon, too. Been a lot going on with both of you, can sure understand not feeling up to par.

I finished the afghan for Brynlee. Samantha was so excited to get it. She said NOW she'll probably find the other one! LOL I told her not to worry about it, doesn't hurt to have an extra. Brynlee liked it because the open stitch let her put her fingers through it.

Hi All;

Sunday we went on a nice ride, it was a benefit for the 'Sharing Foundation', which is for organ donors - something I believe in.

Was very tired Sunday night, but thought it was all the fresh air. Well on Monday it was all I could do to get thru the work day. Got home and was in bed by 7:30 and slept until 6:00 this morning. I worked from home today, just didn't feel like going into the office. Fortunately I never do this so I had no problems with it. Must have picked up some type of bug over the weekend.

Tomorrow I'm having blood work done (for my annual physical) so maybe something will show up....of course it could also be I'm just tired!

Other than this it has been a quiet week so far.

got a good nights sleep.. I feel like I can [ tackle] the world !!

Trudy:
not sure with DH's health.. I am thinking since his blood sugars are all over the place again,, it might have something to do with him being dizzy,,weak,, he is usually a good eater,,but doesn't want food either..

our door knob locked up,, we have a dead bolt,, just used that for safety last night,, and put a rag in the other hole..L O L.. (( really uptown look..lol )) and I will drive DH to get a new door knob for our back door,, DH took ALL the entry way door knobs to have them RE Keyed,, which a realtor always advises you to do.. but I think the place that did them,, messed them up.. really hard to get our keys in to open..

Joyce:
I sure hope that gets straight with the medical bill.. I don't like that either when you can NOT figure out what/where/who is billing.. they send so much [ out ] who knows who did tests/lab ,, and the antithesologist bill ALWAYS is from some billing place .. very hard to figure out a bill anymore..

Everyone have a great day !!

Hi everyone!

Had heavy rain again last night and it's cloudy today. Been a rainy week - first real wet spell we've had since moving here almost a year ago.

Merri, this bill is a weird one. I don't even know what it's for, to be honest. It's from a place other than the hospital, but was for the time Andy was in the hospital with the heart issue. We got an insurance notice showing they had submitted a bill for five items at .01 for each! Insurance denied the claim for the reason that it was a service within the hospital or something....I don't recall. Well then months later they submitted another bill for the SAME services, but this time over $500 for each. (you had to know the .01 was an error). Well insurance denied the claim saying it had already been submitted previously. I sent copies of all paperwork to the insurance company, asking them to review it and to the medical place explaining what the issue was. They had set up a payment plan, but the payment was nearly $300 a month! I told them we are senior citizens on fixed income and asked if the payment amount could at least be reduced. Haven't heard from either place and I'm not paying anything until the insurance company responds to the appeal.

Nothing on the agenda today. Been working on a baby afghan since Sunday night. I'd made one for Brynlee that Sam said was her favorite banket and somehow they lost it on one of the Ohio trips. I decided to make her another one to surprise them. Only take a couple of days, it's a really easy pattern.

Going to Dollywood this weekend to use our "bring a friend free" passes. We'll take Jim and Brenda. Not sure if Saturday or Sunday. Was hoping Sunday so Austin and Sam could go with us. We got him a season pass for his birthday in March and he hasn't been able to go at all yet! :-( Brenda said Jim's Dad might be coming down Sunday though, so he can view the eclipse from here on Monday. Guess SC is one of the best places to see it. So, we wait and see..........

Hope everyone has a great day today...............
