Hi everyone - hope you're all enjoying a great weekend.

Crazy morning. Got Adalyn at 6:30. Fed her some yogurt for breakfast. Andrea hasn't been able to get her meds yet - some gliche with her insurance! GRRRR No fever this morning, she slept good last night and she's taking a long nap now. Looked like a rash on her face/neck but with her it's hard to tell because her skin is so sensitive she's always getting marks - but they go away quickly. See what it looks like when she gets up.

JJ dropped Aiyden off at 10. I made sausage/pancakes for everyone. Then I was working on my computer getting the wedding ceremony program done so Brenda and Jim could get it printed off at his work today. Now Andy's gone with Desi, Stephen and Aiyden to Aurora Farms. She wanted to look at some of the outlet stores there and Aiyden likes to feed the ducks, I've got the water on for the macaroni so I can get the salad made. Crazy, crazy time - for sure!!

It's cloudy here today. Had some rain last night, but I think tomorrow it's supposed to be nice.

Peggy, Aiyden is doing really well with all the excitement and he likes Michael a lot. He doesn't warm up to men too easily, so this is a good thing! :-)

Well, water's boiling - gotta run. LOL

Good morning where we have 66 degrees right now and they are saying up to 78. We have had really beautiful weather here lately. Oh yes, some rain, but not enough to really stop anyone's plans for that long...

Nothing planned for today. Maybe hamburgers on the grill. Ken made one big pot of goulash and of course we froze most of it. There is one bowl for each of us or today or tomorrow....

Joyce, It as actually two different drs that told Ken & I to take it easy. Mine was the rheumatologist and Ken's was the chiropractor.....Oh how I would love to cut the grass today tho....Oh well, I had better just let this knee rest yet...

Joyce, That is always so hard when there are divorces and everyone trying to get along. I think we are going to find that now with our DD that was here for four months and he family. So far the dad has most of the four kids not liking our DD even tho he was mean to her. but the kids only see that she left them. Oh gosh, they are 26-36..Not babies at all..Only two are at home yet anyway...

Good morning everyone!
It's a beautiful, sunny morning here. It's suppose to be hot. I need to get the yard mowed. So, I'll go out about 10 and do that. I hate to do it too early in the morning, especially on Sunday.
I'm having some people over for dinner and want to sit on the deck. It'll be nicer with the yard mowed!!
I'm going to grill steaks, have a sweet potato salad and and asparagus salad. I fixed a dessert that's frozen. So, everything will be easy and I can enjoy the guests.
Joyce, glad Andrea took Adalyn to the Dr. Now she can start getting better. Enjoy the visit with the GD from TN. So glad she got to come. Andrea is probably smart to keep Sundays at McD.
You really don't want to burn all the bridges!!
Gwyn, glad the cable guy was able to get you back up and running.
Peggy, when do you leave to go north?
Off here for now. Everyone had a fantastic Sunday!!

You're right Peggy - maybe there's hope yet?? LOL

The rehearsal dinner went well. Got a BIG surprise - our GD from TN and her boyfriend showed up! She really wanted to be here for the wedding, so they just decided to "do it". Gottal admit that weekend houseguests were the last thing on my agenda, but I'm glad she's here. She and Andrea have always been close, even with the distance involved. Funny thing is she doesn't want anyone else to know she's here - not even her Dad. Doesn't hurt my feelings since he treats Andy so badly and was so hateful to Brenda recently. Serves him right!

Andrea took Adalyn to ER tonight. The med centers were closed and we really didn't want to risk letting it go till next week. I told Andrea I thought she had thrush and sure enough, that's what it is. Get the meds tomorrow and get it treated.

OK, I'm tired. Be on tomorrow when I can.

Hi everyone packing today after Jerry's concert. It was in a beautiful park in Orlando and we were sitting under some big old trees with shade and a nice breeze. What a wonderful place for a memorial weekend concert.

Joyce, Andrea is really getting smarter in her old age. Ha Ha.

So good of her to keep her hand in it at McDonalds.

back to my packing I go.

Hi all....

Trudy, the wedding is Monday. Today is the rehearsal at 5, I have to make a roaster of rigatoni for that. Tomorrow we'll get the hall all decorated and set up. Really neat we get the use of the hall for three days and only paying for one - thanks to my niece.

Merri - now THAT'S a great doctor - prescribing that you both take it easy for a week. Can I have his number? LOL

Have the kids - Brenda is at the salon for a bit and then stopping at the hall to get some stuff organized. Andrea was at the salon and now at the nail place to hopefully get her nails done. She's had a heck of a time trying to get them done - hard to find time and they are so busy there!

She met with her McD manager and she wanted to know if the company had done something to cause her to leave. Andrea said no - (duh, it was that manager - not the company!) LOL But Andrea didn't want to make waves, she just told her all the advantages of the new job and the mgr said she didn't blame her at all for switching. She asked Andrea if she would consider working just a mini shift on Sundays to keep herself in the system in case things didn't work out. Thought that was nice of her and Andrea agreed to do that, with the stipulation if she had plans for a Sunday, she would not be available. She has a probation period at the new place and figured it was a good idea to keep McD's as a backup if necessary.

Good morning,
It's 69 here. Kind of cloudy! Oh well.
Merri, I guess you can just rest with a clear mind!! Doctors orders!! Let your bodies heal and rest and then you can get busy again!! As beautiful as your yard is maybe you could sit outside and read a book! Then you'd be outside at least!
I'm going to a wedding today. One of my husband's cousins is getting married. He lost his wife of more than 50 years a few months after my husband passed away. He said the theme of the wedding is 160.2 because their combined age is 160 and it's the second marriage for both.
Joyce, enjoy the day. Is the wedding Sun or Mon? Too funny about hearing voices!!
Char, so glad your stitches are out.
Everyone have a great weekend!!

Good morning from K-town where we are already at 68 and sunny!! They are saying it should get to around 81 and little rain....

My Dr gave me another injection in my left knee and told me to just be good and try to do only 4,000 steps a day for a week at least instead of trying to get over 10,000 and let his darn knee heal..

Than Ken went for his adjustment and his dr told him to ease off on his activity for a week or so too....What dr tell you not to do as much. Usually it is the other way around LOL....

Now, How do we sit still with this beautiful weather out there?? Ken is going to make goulash today and that will keep us busy inside for awhile anyway. Ken wants to get the thing from top of our DS closet and make a shelf up there. It will actually give us more room with the extra shelf. He had done it to our closet last winter.

CHAR, I AM GLAD TO HEAR THAT YOU GOT THE STITCHES OUT OF YOUR HAND NOW.

Joyce, Oh boy, I bet everyone is really busy at your house right now. Good luck to everyone and hope all goes well. I know you are a very good planer...

Hi all....

Hot and humid here too. Andy put the a/c in our bedroom last night.

He was in there working and I kept hearing noise by the corner of my couch by the a/c in here. Thought maybe a bird got into it or something. I kept muting the TV trying to hear what it was. After a few times I heard VOICES and thought "what the heck - we're on the second floor and that's an outside wall!" I leaned over trying to hear better and saw the light on the baby monitor! LOL The other one is in our room because I put Adalyn in the pack and play in there for her naps and never turned it off. So I was hearing Andy working in there and he had the TV on! Silly me!

Good morning from K-town where we are at 71 already. It was really muggy here yesterday. Finally turned on the AC around 3 PM....Had the fans going too. I guess it feels like the older Ken & I are getting the more the heat is getting to us....

Ok, I am one day ahead of myself again. I moped our floors yesterday. I can always find something to do tho around the house to clean up. I think I will take the nice blankets I have on our couch and chairs and wash them instead. I like to keep them on there with Ken sweating so much lately. Sometimes he might come in with some dirt on his butt too LOL

I hope everyone has a nice long weekend and it stays nice outside too...We are going to have some scattered rain at times. That is fine with us....Our flowers do need the rain. Nothing like the real rain for the flowers....

I don't like doing exercises on my own at home, but I had a rude awakening a few days ago when I went to buy a dress to attend my nephew's wedding.
I got some beautiful outfits to try on BUT my lower tummy showed up so much it was not a pretty sight. emoticon
So I said to myself stop being lazy and do some abs,
So I did 15 minutes of abs this morning and feel very chuffed now.
Just saying!
Stay blessed everyone!

Good morning,
It's cloudy and 65 here this morning. It got humid really quickly. But, it's suppose to "dry" off over the weekend.
I think I'll got to the Y this morning and then run a couple of errands. I don't have any plans for the weekend except the neighbors are coming for grilled steaks on Monday. We eat together pretty frequently so, it's not a big deal but, I won't have to be by myself all 3 days!!
One of the Y gals has been taking her husband back and forth to the Dr. for several weeks and we haven't seen her. They have had her husband through a battery of tests and she wrote to us yesterday and said they had all of the results and he has stage 4 lung cancer and COPD. He isn't a candidate for surgery so, he'll be having chemo. I really feel for them. The have been married about 35 years and never had any kids. He has two from a previous marriage and they aren't close to his kids. In the middle of all of this he fell and broke his arm and had to have surgery on it in a town close to here while I was on vacation. So, the arm is healed but everything is going south. Rough time ahead for them.
Joyce, have a great weekend. I hope the wedding is fun and Andrea and her husband are happy!
Barb, I used to say it was fun to go to work just to be able to get off early!! I hope it doesn't rain all 3 days!!
Enjoy Bagel King Peggy. Your days for that are getting short aren't they?
Merri, I still have a land line too. I'm thinking about getting rid of it because I get so many robo calls. It's unreal!
Annie, have a nice weekend and I'm happy some of your guests are helping with the food!!
Gwyn, I hope you have the weekend off after the long day you had.
Char, enjoy the weekend. Do you and your family have any plans?
Off for now. Everyone have a good day.

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. Take the time to take care of this; it really makes a great difference.

Hi All'

Not too much going on here - just waiting for the long weekend! I actually get 3 1/2 days off. I had worked extra hours a few weeks ago and the company had asked me if I would take the time over the pay - that's fine with me. So I get out at 2 tomorrow...hooray!!

No rain today, maybe later tonight. And they're saying it might rain a few days over the weekend. I have no plans - feel bad for those that do.

Joyce, you have a busy weekend coming up! Hopefully the wedding will go off without a problem.

Annie, so glad the Judge was on your side - now maybe you can put this in back of you. Enjoy your company this weekend.

Peggy, the weather is hot up here! Ready for you to come back.

Trudy, I think the rain you're getting today will be heading my way tomorrow.

Char, Oh how scary about the fire - you're right, could have been lots worse.

Gwyn, another long day! too bad for you - how's your kitty & puppy getting along?

Merri, OMG a micky mouse phone! Haven't seen one of them in years! I'm with Joyce - don't have a landline in the house - just use my cell phone.

Everyone have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Oh Gosh Annie, yes, extra prayers for you and those you're trying to council. Such a tough place to be. Some people can't get the monkey off their backs.
I'm home from the Y. It was fun as usual!! I could have sat here all afternoon and read my book but, I'm so glad I got off my keester and went to the Y,
Everyone have a great evening.

Oh Annie - that is so sad. Drugs and alcohol have ruined so many lives - it's awful! I know the step-dad of our GD's in TN is homeless, living on the streets because of drugs! Our one GD's husband down there is facing prison time because of them, too. :-(

Prayers for wisdom for all concerned in that situation!!

CHAR - my goodness what a scare that must have been! Thank heaven it was no worse!

Gwyn, sounds like a long day for you.

Peggy, you must be so excited to see Adin again and get to spend a good amount of time with him.

Trudy, I think we're supposed to get t'storms sometime later today. Nice breeze right now.

Merri, you mentioning your Mickey Mouse phone made me smile! We don't even have a phone in the house anymore. I used to have a "duck phone" that quacked when it rang. LOL

Late on here this morning. Adalyn had a fever when Andrea brought her up, so I spent time snuggling her and getting her meds in her, etc. I think she's just teething, keeps biting hard on her upper gum. Fever broke with the tylenol, but then it was up again by the time for the next dose. She's napping now, hopefully she'll feel better when she gets up.

Nothing new here which is most likely a good thing!! Did hear back from my attorney friend on Andrea's paperwork. He said she might qualify for legal aid to keep Jim from preventing her move. He's said he doesn't want to stop her, but you never know. There's no set visitation for long distances - basically the State Supreme Court says "work it out!" Well, not exactly, but up until school age, more contact should be maintained. After school, pretty much school breaks and time in the summer. Just a matter of how long JJ really stays interested is my guess. Since Andrea's fiance also has a little girl he has visitation with, they should be able to coordinate something there - hopefully.

Good morning!
Raining right now. My plants are getting a good drink!! I won't have to get the hose out today.
I'm going to the Y this afternoon. I was going to help a friend put her patio furniture together but, she called a little bit ago and said she isn't feeling very well and it's dark on her patio if the sun isn't out. So, we'll probably get together over the weekend to do it.
CHAR!! I HOPE TODAY IS A LOT BETTER FOR YOU. YOU SURE WERE LUCKY THAT SOME PEOPLE DID HEAR YOU SCREAM!! AND THE CAR?!? ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER. SURELY TODAY WILL BE BETTER!!
Annie, so glad the authorities are finally on board with trying to get that squatter out of your life!
Joyce, oh how sad about Austin's dog. That is always such a sad time.
Glad the wedding plans are coming together! I hope it all comes off without a hitch. Best of luck to Andrea and her husband (to be). I hope the new job works out really well!!
I wasn't really surprised that Allison won either. She was a favorite from the first since people remembered her as Curly Sue.
Peggy, when are you leaving for NY? Next week sometime? I'll bet your ready for some Adin time!!
Gwyn, what a long volunteer day. Goodness.
Hi to everyone!! Have a great day.

Good morning from K-town where it is sunny and is 70 degrees already!!! Another hot muggy day on hand...

Char, Oh my goodness!!! That is just terrible. I have heard of things like that happening in basements too...

Well, There isn't much for me to clean on the night stands. I always wash my sleep apnea things tho on Thurs. My Mickey Mouse phone is on the other night stand. No room for things to get on either of them...

Joyce, It sure sounds like things are all organized for the weeding. Great job all of you are doing.....Time is surely getting close now...

Good morning everyone.
Dr. Appt went well.The day itself went down hill.
Hubby was cutting next doors hedges for him he is recovering from an operation.
There are a lot of them he is on a corner lot and they are way taller than him.
So I smelled dmoje,and thought he is burning up his hedge trimmers. It got stringer so I went outside to check.
Our garage was on fire. I screamed for him. He didn't hear me but the guys in the lumber yard did and the guy in the alley I had the run to him with everyone yelling he still didn't hear.
They got it out it was on a garbage can figured something combusted.
What a scary day God was there because we could have lost everything. Cars ,motorcycles.
They later hubby took the car to be washed comes home,says I should have stayed in bed. Well he for got to close the sun roof it was only cracked open got soaked inside.
So let's hope today is a better one.
Enjoy your day everyone.

Peggy, the wedding plans are coming along nicely. I am only making rigatoni for the night of rehearsal and macaroni salad for the wedding itself. Several of Brenda's friends offered to make things, so that's a huge help! Being Memorial Day, kinda keeping with the "picnic" theme. Chicken, pulled pork, chicken salad, baked beans, cheesy potatoes, mac salad, fruit salad, pasta salad and I think broccoli salad. We're having the rehearsal there Saturday night, then we have access to the hall all day Sunday and Monday. (My niece is the custodian of the place, so we have "connections.") LOL We'll decorate on Sunday and then Monday do the set up for the dinner

Annie, I am SO glad things worked out like that! Bet you can't wait to see here there and dial those three numbers!! LOL

Long day today. We left here around 10:30, went to Chance's graduation ceremony. Being a vocational school it's pretty lengthy. He graduates from his home school next week. Then we came back to the salon and got hair cuts for the wedding. Then on to WM to pick up some things I needed. Didn't get back home till 7!

Poor Austin, his small dog got hit by the school bus this morning! He took her to the vet, she had both legs broken and her back was broken. They said they could do several surgeries over a period of time but it would cost anywhere up to $10,000 and no guarantee she's be OK even then. He's broken hearted, had to make the decision to put her down. She was such a cute little thing. No idea why she was up by the road unless the bigger dog went and she just followed along. She always stayed by the house. :-(

Andrea has orientation for the new job on June 10, then starts on the following Monday. She'll give her 2 week notice tomorrow at McD's. If they don't want the two weeks, I think she can start the other job sooner.

home from the court hearing:
Shelby Rinhart didn't even show up( the prosecuting attorney didn't think she would),, so the PA asked the judge for a $5,000.oo bench warrent,, The judge read through some of the papers in our file,, and then said NO..
we about fainted,,
then the judge said this one is at least $10,000.oo , so the judge&our PA both agreed on the $10,000 !!
we left, I drove us to the property, she wasn't there, but her sleeping bags--junk--food was.. ((she usually leaves during the day))
when we see her on the property we are to dial 911 and OFF she goes to JAIL ...
we both feel like NOW we have rights,, as Shelby kept telling
US she had rights !!!!!!

Good Morning!

Well, Trudy neither of our guys won last night! Kinda expected it to be Alison.

Hot, humid and chance of showers is pretty much the forecast here for the rest of the week.

Have to go to GS's graduation from his vocational school today - leaving here in about an hour. Then next Wed. he graduates from his home school. Hard to imagine he's the last GC to graduate and then only a few years till we start with the GGC!

Another pretty day here so far. There's a chance of rain thru Sunday. So, probably off and on we'll see some rain. Not that I've gotten my pots planted it's ok to have rain once in a while!! emoticon (Like I have anything to say about it!)
I'm working at the Senior center this afternoon. Nothing else much going on.
Everyone have a good day!!

Trudy, it's a hard call - all four are really good. I like Adam, because I like classic country and he's like a Travis Tritt. Laith is definitely a great talent, too! Of the girls, I think I prefer Alison to Hannah. Kinda neat all four judges had a finalist, too!

I have a hunch it'll be between your Laith and Alison.

LOL - I won't ask again Annie! But really glad they pursued that thing with the squatter! Be anxious to hear how that turns out!

Yes, it'll be nice to have shorter hours and not have to babysit on Sundays anymore either! She'll be starting work at 6:30 but Michael doesn't leave until 9 or so for his job so she's going to have him bring the kids up when he leaves so I won't have to be up so early either. :-)

Zone 4: Mission #3 Wednesday



Today is the day that you get a really short mission. The only thing you have to do is grab your feather duster or dust rag and dust off the tops of your door jambs and windows. Take the duster or rag and wipe across the tops of the molding and jambs. Take a swipe across the hinges as well; they seem to collect little dusties as well. This is quick and easy and makes quite a nice difference.

Annie, thanks for the Happiness Project list you sent! It's great and all of those things would make you feel better!! Enjoy ALL of your company over the weekend. I hope they appreciate the grass being cut especially if you threw out your back.
Glad you got the airline tickets worked out! First class can't be all bad!! emoticon
Joyce, yay for Andrea!! A good job with benefits! At least now you'll have shorter days of babysitting and you'll have weekends off!! You're right about volunteering. You DO your share!!
It's 90 this afternoon and really windy. Probably blowing in that bad weather which is predicted for the rest of the week.
Everyone have a nice evening! The VOICE finale is on!

This is a little long,, but EXCELLENT,,some are like the Fly Lady

The Happiness Project (book)
by: Gretchen Rubin.

1. Make your bed. Outer order contributes to inner calm, inner self-command, and creativity.
2. Smell the roses--or something else nice. Scents provide a quick lift without spending time, energy, or money. They don't take planning. And they have no calories.
3.Follow the "one-minute rule." Anything you can do in less than a minute, do without delay.
4.When leaving a room, pick up a misplaced thing as you go.
5. Listen to an upbeat song. It may seem obvious, but it does work to change your mood.
6. Jump up and down. this simple energy-booster works really well, especially when you have only a few seconds to spare.
7. Kiss someone you love. Seizing the moment to deepen a relationship can't help but make you happy.

Trudy, I'm glad you're enjoying the volunteering! I'd probably look into that if I wasn't "volunteered" to babysit so much! LOL

Merri, that's a good idea for the old socks! Yeah, we love Roadhouse, but it's better when it's a special treat!

Gwyn, glad the kitty is starting to come out to get attention. Takes time.....

Annie, what's up with you??? You've been busy with company lately, right?

I think we escaped the virus for the kids, thankfully! Made me nervous for awhile!

Peggy, that was a great idea - getting the extra day in for Bagel King! emoticon

Andrea got a call this morning that she has been hired at another company. She goes tomorrow to fill out paperwork, etc. I didn't even know she had interviewed there. LOL She said she was sure she'd told me - nope! She had said she was looking for another job, sick of the way McD's treats her, but I had no idea she'd actually interviewed. This is a check company and she would be packing boxes. They start at $10 an hour which is more than she's making now even with the managers' certification! She would work 6:30-2:30 five days a week. They pay weekly, have benefits and 401K. Off weekends, which I love - always hated her having to work Sundays!

Good morning,
I'm home from volunteering at Food For Seniors. I got there at 7 and we were done by 8. It's the first time for this. I'll go again. It's the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays.
It sounds like everyone is doing well today. I'm doing well!!
Peggy, enjoy your extra Bagel King day!!
I hope you get to hang your sheets and blankets out Char.
Wow Merri, you and Ken really got after it yesterday didn't you!! Enjoy the burgers on the grill.
I had burgers off the grill last night!
Glad the kitty is showing his face Gwyn. The dog will get used to the kitty!!
Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning from K-town where we are at a high of 63 already with the sun shining too...What more can I ask for.

Joyce, I use the old socks for dusting and Ken for things in his garage. They fit really well on my hands and can get into alot of small places too...

I think today we will grill out again as it looks like rain is coming later today and almost every day even over the long weekend...


Yesterday we sure got alot done around here. First we edged the grass and than I cut the front as Ken cut the back. He than got the long grass by our fence. Then I washed down the house and washed the van all in one morning.

Now today we are going to grill out again. We always love hamburgers on the grill. We only buy the best grade of hamburger. When we make the hamburgers up, there is no grease at all on our hands...It cost a little over $2 each for a hamburger that way...

Joyce, I no more than said on here maybe yesterday that we didn't have anyone graduating this year. Well, two announcements came yesterday...One for a great niece on my side and a nephew on Ken's side....

We love the Roadhouse too. We just have been staying away for a bit as our DS Rick had taken us there three times in a week and than our DD Kim had taken us there for Ken's birthday on the 5th....Just too much of a good thing....

Good morning everyone!!

We're going out for our walk and then off to Bagel king for an unexpected day. I said to Jerry last night that we should go today to have an extra day to make up for all that we are missing.

Then it's home to work on Woman's Club stuff so that I can get it cleaned up and back to the clubhouse before we leave next week.

Hi All....

That's a good fly lady for tomorrow. Time to clean out that drawer! I don't have odd socks much either Merri, but I do have OLD ones that just need to be tossed. LOL

Trudy, we had a good time at Roadhouse. I only ordered the grilled chicken salad since we'd just eaten at Roadhouse in TN. I even passed on my usual margarita! Had a good visit with BIL and SIL and then we went to visit Andy's aunt who's in a nursing home near there. She really looked great tonight and was in good spirits. Glad we stopped to see her. She's 86 years old.

Barb, I think they're only going to be able to spend their wedding night at a motel in a nearby town, both have to work the next day. I think Michael is going to be able to go to Myrtle Beach for the week in July though, so that'll be good.

Jim called the company he interviewed with. They remembered him immediately, asked how the wedding was that we went to down there. They said they had to reschedule one of the interviews for this Thursday, so it would be ANOTHER 2, 2-1/2 weeks before they reached a decision but that he definitely was still in the running. So we wait some more. Like Brenda said, at least that would shorten the gap between when he'd have to go and she could go.

Hi All;

This morning was beautiful, warm (high 60's) and sunshine! But it didn't last long, the clouds came over around noon, and the rain started about 6. Supposed to rain all night and into tomorrow. At least it's good for the plants.

Trudy, I hate driving in the rain! Fortunately I didn't have to - the boys (Jerry and his brother) came with us. While us Ladies were at the shower the boys were having their own party in the warm house! They helped themselves to all the food BEFORE we even got it!!

Gwyn - so how is the kitty adjusting? or should I say how is the puppy adjusting!

Merri, I bet all your plants are nice to see

Joyce, the wedding is coming fast! Are they able to get away - even for a few days, for a honeymoon?

Annie, I agree - make sure you relax a little so you can enjoy your company.

Peggy, sure hope our weather improves, otherwise you'll want to go back to Florida early!

Char, so glad you had a good time with your family - those are priceless memories.

Here is tomorrow's Fly Lady

Zone 4: Mission #2 Tuesday

:

It is time to fling some socks and pantyhose today. You know that drawer that is full of old pantyhose and mismatched socks that you have held on to for reasons you don't even know. It is time to go through and toss, toss, toss. Be good to yourself and let go of these things that are cluttering up your bedroom. Hidden in a drawer or not, it is still clutter. Take 15 minutes and toss.

Well, I'm back from the Y. I did the two morning classes today so that's 2 hours. Now some lunch and then a pedicure!
Merri, my mil used to plant her tomatoes with a bucket or can around them, holes in the bottom and water that way and once a month she'd throw in a little fertilizer. She had the biggest plants and most beautiful tomatoes.
Joyce, enjoy Texas Roadhouse. I don't get there very often but do enjoy it when I do get there.
Beautiful day here too!! Heavy rain the rest of the week. My plants will love it!!
Off for now.

Hi gals - a beautiful day here in Ohio....we have some rain coming later in the week, but not EVERY day. Supposed to be in the 80's!

Trudy, yes "alone time" is precious - I so rarely get any!

Gwyn, you are so good about exercising. I have to get back to it.

Peggy, time to head north again soon, eh? I see Kathy is there - hope you two can get together. Missed her this trip to FL. :-(

We're meeting Andy's brother and SIL at Texas Roadhouse later today to celebrate her birthday. They just got back from TN last night. They went to Dollywood one day, anxious to hear if they had crowds or if it was just our bad timing for that weekend. They stayed with our cousins near Bristol - think they were there all week.

Don't know if I'm battling a head cold or allergies. Still have a scratchy throat and stuffy nose. I tired Claritin yesterday - didn't seem like it helped much. Might try Dayquil today.

Hope you all have a great day!!!

Good morning from K-town where we are 62 degrees already. They are calling for rain late tomorrow night and than all of the rest of the week...So..grass has to be cut early tomorrow!

Oh my, now that is one job I do have to do. I know we have shoved things under our bed from last winter. I do know my DS and Ken's amo for their guns are under there LOL

We really didn't do much yesterday out in the yard. Just enjoyed looking at all of the flowers we had planted last week. They are all doing so well.

Our one Priest was saying on Facebook about putting baking soda around the tomato plants. I want to read up more about that one. Also to put a bucket in the ground around the tomato plants and pour the water in the bucket and not on the plants. Of course drill some holes in the bucket for the water to come out LOL...

Good morning,
It sure was a chatty time here over the weekend. I love reading the posts.
I had a fun time at the deck party on Sat. night. Good food and great people. I went over about 6 and when I walked in the door later it was 10. I was surprised it was so late. The moon over the weekend was so beautiful!! I had the neighbors over for dinner last night. I had some chicken marinating and hadn't used my grill yet this week. So, they came and ate with me. We were able to eat out on the deck. It was beautiful. I'm loving this weather. This week it's suppose to be warm but, rain every day....
Barb don't you hate driving in the rain? 3 hours would really work on my nerves. I've done it....just don't like it much!! Glad the rain held off for the shower though.
Peggy, what a nice thing for your club getting recognized so much!!
Joyce, some alone time is very precious to you isn't it!! I hope Jim learns something today about the job.
Annie, rest this week so you're READY for all the company!! Don't work yourself to death!!
Gwyn, I hope the dog lets the kitty settle in!!
Merri, enjoy your week!!
Char, so glad your hand is healing. It's always fun to have a party where there is a lot of laughter.
Tomorrow I need to be at a church close to here to help fill bags with food for seniors. This is through the Senior Center I started volunteering at. Then I'll be there every Wed. afternoon through the summer. Except the 2 Wed. I'll be gone on vacation. One in June and one in July.
Everyone have a great day.

Good morning everyone! 67 this morning and headed out for our walk. Then I get my haircut and we're off to Bagel King.

We leave a week from tomorrow for NY so I have lots to do this week to get ready. We will be gone for 6 weeks this time so I have to make sure everything gets done before we leave.

Hi All;

The baby shower was nice, fortunately the rain held off until it was over - especially since it was outside! They had it in a large tent, but the sides were open - so it's a good thing that it didn't start raining - we all would have gotten soaked!

It rained all the way home - 3 hr drive in the rain - yuck!

Again today, cloudy and rainy - getting tired of this weather! Sure hope it's better for next weekend!

Gwyn, ahhh a little kitty! How nice, I'm sure your puppy will get used to the kitty. He's just used to getting all of your time, doesn't like to share.

Merri, another reason for us all to cut back on the sugar. Thanks for the info.

Annie, sounds like you'll have a housefull! You should start charging for room & board!

Joyce, hoping your SIL gets that job. With all those weddings & graduations - you'll be in the poor house!

Char, hope you start feeling better soon.

Trudy, your house will look so nice with all those plants.

Here's tomorrow's Fly Lady I must have deleted the week one but I will find it tomorrow morning.


Zone 4: Mission #1 Monday

Dear Friends:

This week we are in the Master Bedroom. Today I want you to spend 15 minutes under your bed. Take this time to get the things out from under the bed that you have shoved under there during a mad stash and dash through the house. 15 minutes might not be enough, but for today, just try to put a dent in the stuff that you have put there. Things that just don't belong. If you don't have anything under your bed, then grab a vacuum cleaner or broom and get the dust bunnies that have been multiplying under there. Have fun with this, just 15 minutes.

No, Annie, no phone call on the job yet. It was 3 weeks Friday and they said 2-2 1/2 weeks. I think he might call them tomorrow just to touch base with them and let them know he's still very interested.

JJ dropped Aiyden off around 10:30. I still don't get what the court thing is about unless it's just that he wants to legally establish parental rights (which no one ever challenged). His visitation would be Fri. 6 pm till Sun. 6 pm every other week. As it is now, he only wants to pick him up around 3 on Saturday and brings him home by 11 Sunday morning! And that's been HIS choice.

Andy went down to his son's and Aiyden wanted to go. We gave Russ an a/c off the back porch when we were at the house getting rid of stuff. Turns out it belonged to Austin's friend Kyle. Oooopsie! We thought it was the one that had been in Andrea's room at the house. So Andy is going to get it back. We told Russ he can have the one that's still in Andrea's old room when that kid moves out. LOL

So I am actually here ALONE for a few hours. Can't even remember the last time that happened. Watching the Tribe game and working on an afghan for one of the upcoming weddings. :-)

Good morning from K-town where we are at 65 and sunny!!! It looks like rain is going to start coming in the middle of the week...So, had better enjoy it for now...

We are going to have hamburgers on the grill today. I am not sure what we are going to be doing at all....Yesterday I washed my little red 89 Jimmy when Ken took it out of the garage to let it run for awhile. Got Rick's car cleaning supplies all organized what are stored in the back of the Jimmy. Gosh, two and three bottles of the same kind of wax for cars...All kinds of wheel cleaning stuff...

Mr Ken cleaned out the grill. Oh my gosh, there sure was alot of gunk on the bottom of the tray. We do use it alot tho....Mr Ken had to fix the filter on the fish pond too...The fish love when the water comes over them with the one filter Ken uses....

Char - hope the thumb feels better soon!

Gwyn, that's something I really miss here in the apt. - having pets. We always had a dog and cat. The apts in SC all allow pets, but rarely can you find one up here that will.

Slept in this morning - it sure felt good! Those 6:30 mornings get rough after awhile. LOL
