Oh now my goodness I do think our WM is right up there with the rest of you for bad carts. I won't push one as I had to push my walker for 17 years before I had my total knee done. Ken gets the honors of pushing the cart for us. I think I might start going to WM around 8 am than too. That does sound like a good time...We are always up anyway...Thanks Jim for the idea...

I also like the idea of the reusuable grocery bags. I have so many new ones here that I should be able to use too..Thanks for that idea too....

We got all of the health ins figured out now and than yesterday we got the confirmation letter that we had joined and on the top of the letter it had PepsiCo, so it sounds like we are still with Pepsi and here we thought all along that they had dumped all of the retirees. That is how things get tangeled and turned around....

It's always nice to come home to a quiet house isn't it Annie.

We're back from our day out visiting. Adin and Uncle Jared are downstairs playing darts.

Jodi was going to have a quiet time. Her husband Dave left when we did. He was taking the 13 year old son of their friend Christmas shopping for his mother's gift. Dave has been doing this for years. He said that Chistian (the son) always tries not to spend too much money on the gifts and Dave keeps telling him to buy what he wants. Dave is one of the father figures in his life.

Hello everyone. Got my shopping done early which also included walmart. I go ther early, like 8am. Never late or at night. Our walmart is the holding store for all the other walmart shopping carts that have broken, chipped, or stuck wheels. Walked over a mile in the stores and parking lot. My forearms got a workout trying to keep the cart going straight instead of pulling to the right.

Never quit dreaming.

Thanks for the laugh of the day Bern!!! I sure can relate, absolutely hate shopping anymore. At my area WM you have to also be sure not to be there on the day the Amish are doing their shopping - they're worse than any others plus they don't believe in deodorant! LOL

**Just read through and this seems to have become an old man yelling at the parked car to slow down because it looks fast RANT***

Morning all, I'm looking at an empty coffee cup and thinking about my 2nd for the day. I need to pick up scripts at WalMart after 1:30 today. I don't like thinking about going in there at any time of the year. Add the holidays and you've got crazy compounded. My WalMart did away with the handcarry baskets ages ago which makes the carts the deal to shop. Better for them because you tend to put more in a cart. Cart drivers on the left side, drivers on the right, that's OK, I can get around. But those middle of the road shoppers who stop and park the cart without any clearance to pass on the free side, and because their body is blocking on the side they found a possible bargain which can't be passed, THOSE people! And I find it strange they are all deaf and suffer from tunnel vision to the point that other shoppers, and yes I do mean ME, are not a part of their world. Lots of EXCUSEME, heard from this one.

Good Morning Everyone!

Peggy, we have black ice in our area today! Austin is heading for TN with his GFs family - I sure hope they didn't run into it on their way!

Hi Gwyn!

Merri, you're blessed to have such a caring son!! I wouldn't know what to do if someone actually looked after Andy and I instead of it always being the other way around!

Aiyden is off with his Dad today, so maybe I can get some wrapping done. We'll see.....

Austin passed the last lap of his EMT test last night! YAAAAAY. He passed the hands on test a week ago, then passed his class final earlier this week and then last night had the written part of the certification test! Whew! Finally done with it all and won't be doing anything more until April when he'll begin his Class 2 Firefighter training.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Darlene, Oh such wonderful news!!! You have so much more now to celebrate with such good news. I was a volunteer Chaplin at our local hospital for five yrs and I had seen so much power in prayer. I even had some of the drs want me to come and pray with them with their patients..

I had let our son Rick know that a check had come here for him for when he had to put his money out for his recent tests for his physical for his new job this fall.

He said to use the check for something nice for Ken & I for Christmas. I asked him if it was ok to use some of it to use on our credit card as we had charged our first ins premium as they wanted the money right away and no check would reach them in time..

His reply was:

"I will call either tonight or tomorrow, as I do want to catch up with you and dad. I miss the two of you and really enjoyed our recent time together."

"By far, that was one of the best trips Iíve had and appreciated the quality time with you and dad. And, will do the same again soon!"

"Yes, please use the monies as required "

"you know you and dad can always count on meÖ I also wish you would have charged the money to our debit cards. Please, in the future, do this"

"your loving son"

We did get our ins all figured out now finally. We got a very nice understanding lady this time and she explained everything so nice to us. The one lady the other day said that I wasn't signed up for my med part of the ins.

Well, through Humanna I actually wasn't like Ken was. I guess because his meds are way more expensive than mine, they signed him under that plan. Mine went under Cigna...Mine has no deductible and Ken's does. Now everything has been taken care of and it all done....All we had to do is get one gal that knew what she was doing.....The other lady didn't even know that we could go through the mail order thing for 90 days...

SO thankful to hear that report Darlene! Prayers are amazing!!! Good luck with the future tests and results! I know what you mean about people talking so fast. My GD does that and I have to remind her I can't listen as fast as she's talking! LOL

G'nite Peggy - catchya tomorrow.

Finally sorted through all the gifts I have on hand to see just where I am with shopping. Think I'm pretty much done, just a couple small things to pick up. Want to go to WM Monday and get the fixin's for Christmas dinner. I'll pick up what I need then. Going to stop at my former office that day and see the girls. One of the gals I worked with - that's her last day, and the one who took my position is leaving in January, so I'd like to see them both. Think we'll stop at my daughter Amy's that day too to see her tree and decorations.

Thankful! David saw his dr. today and we discussed his options regarding the
Abdominal Aorta Anyeurism....he said we would monitor it more closely, getting
CT Scans at 6 months to see if there is further change...options may change at
that time.

He saw this dr. for the first time today, he talks at roughly 98 miles per hour, and
David is going to ask his Cardiologist if he knows someone else...as this guy made
him a little uncomfortable. What is important to me is we stay on top of this so it doesn't
do any sneaky growth. The dr did say if it grew faster, or got closer to a 5 CM. then he
would need to fix it.....he also thinks David inherited this from his father.

Thanks for the prayers ...... that means more to me than you know....I believe that is why
he got the report he did....God is good.

Hi everyone....

Andy had to have his coumadin bloodwork done this morning, so I rode along and stopped to take care of a couple of errands on the way back. Made more sense than going out again later. Austin still has our car and I don't drive the big van. LOL

Got more stamps and mailed the last of my cards finally. Still haven't sorted through gifts yet - HAVE to do that today or tomorrow, no more putting it off. Today I got some things for the needy family Brenda is collecting for at her salon. She likes to do that for a family each year. I'd forgotten those the other day, so got that handled.

Merri - sure be glad when that's all behind you! I need to make eye appts once I get the holidays out of the way.

Peggy, you have to feel so good each time you put another piece to the puzzle from the Archives. I sure give you credit - not sure I'd have enough patience for that.

I had a good time at the Archives today. I found a few more things on Jerry's relatives and then I went and visited my friend from elementary school Beverly. She babysits for her great nephew and he is almost 3 and is starting to talk a lot. He is at the stage of saying everything that you say.

Darlene, You have my prayers here in WI too.

We have 18 here this morning

If I could just get this dog gone ins thing settled before the end of the year now I will be one happy camper. They got the health ins all done now and got Ken signed up for his meds but are still having problems with my med ins. They got us signed up with Ken at one com and me with another one....

I get on there and I can just feel my blood pressure going up and I really start sweating so much....Just give me that right answer please for once....Than you can never talk to a person until I get yelling at them....

Ken is going to have his first cataract surgery in Jan for his right eye. So, we got that going on now too. He had to get a special eye drop with the one most people use as he is a diabetic...Never just go with the flow with us. Gosh, what will Mr Ken do now that he will be able to see things LOL.....He is still saying WHAT out of habit LOL I know he can hear me just fine as he looks right at me

We're back from our walk. It was 35 but you had to add in that wind chill factor.

I'm off to the Archives. I lost 1.2 since yesterday. I knew that pound wasn't real but it was scary

We have to go see the heart surgeon tomorrow to get the results of the CT
scan from Tuesday.
Praying for good results and that he does not need a surgery or anything.
His cardiologist said No surgeries, period....so I am insisting on us calling
him and getting an appp't before any decisions are made.

Absolutely will pray for Bob and Mary!!

Annie, I'm beginning to wonder if I'll get ANY baking done! LOL

Steph, I'm sure you'll do just fine with your vocal performance.

Oh boy, Aiyden came home from Brenda's tonight carrying a guitar his Uncle Austin gave him and he won't let it go. Strumming like he knows what he's doing. I think his "hillbilly roots" are showing! LOL

Had a great visit with Andy's Aunt Algia - she was so happy to see her nephews. Spent most of the afternoon with her - lots of memories and laughs shared. Special time.

Only ate half our lunch at Olive Garden, so leftovers for dinner. Works for me!

Please continue to include my sister Mary and her DH Bob in your prayers. She called at about 6 to say that they just got back from Drs. appointments down at the hospital they started out at 1 then Bob had to go somewhere else to have blood work , Mary got her shot and then they had to wait for another Drs. appointment. At least they could wait at their daughters house who lives across the street from the hospital.

Mary has to get another blood transfusion on Monday.

Thanks they really need prayers.

Merri - those insurance issues can be such a headache! I have medical through my school retirement as a supplement to medicare through Andy. For the most part it's been a good plan.

Off to meet Andy's brother and SIL for lunch at Olive Garden and then on to see his aunt in the nursing home. She's had a few bad spells recently and we wanted to be sure to see her. I got her a pretty cross necklace from Andrea's jewelry line - I think she'll like it.

Happy Hanukkah to Ania and Marek!! (Just in case Ania checks in.....LOL)

Have a great day everyone.

Thank you gals once again for praying for Rick's safety ...He is 10 1/2 hours ahead of us so I bet he is going to sleep most of the day today while Nina is at work...

Now that I got one thing God has helped us with, I have to dive into this darn health ins yet. We do have the supplement ins done but are having one darn hard time trying to get the med part figured out...Dam that Pepsi anyway!!! They have been so mean to Ken ever since someone at his job hurt him while he was checking the oil on the big trucks....

The info for them not wanting to carry the retired employees ins was suppose to have been sent to Ken last Aug. We didn't know a thing about it until 6 weeks ago... It is going to go up at least to $250 a month and Pepsi thought it was going to be to our benefit !!!

We're back from our walk. It was 42 and I didn't even need my gloves. My hands are always inside the sleeves of my sweatshirt anyway.

I'm going shopping with my friend Kathy and then grocery shopping with Jerry when I get back

Sounds like everyone is gearing up for a week from tomorrow -- Christmas Day

Annie, that sounds like such a great time, catching up with your former manager! Aiyden loves the lights and music of Christmas. He likes Santa (Ho Ho) from a distance, but was intimidated when he saw him at the mall yesterday. I don't think he really gets the whole idea yet. We have a tub full of animated Christmas figures that play all different songs. His favorite is a motorcycle with a fox dressed like Santa riding it that sings "Grandma got run over by a reindeer! LOL

Darlene - are you all ready for Christmas???

That was a good spin you had on the wheel Jim!

Yaaaay Merri - glad your son is safe! Wonderful news!

Any luck on the angel Barb? I think St. Anthony is the saint for lost items (according to my Catholic girlfriend). Sad thing is if someone picked it and your list up off the ground, they'd have no idea what to do with it. SO hoping it might be in your truck or purse or pocket!

Barb, I am so sorry to hear too that you lost your angel. I wonder if you left it in your truck someplace. So glad to hear too that you did indeed get your washer and dryer home tho...Now off to get your Christmas tree next...

Joyce, You sore have gotten a lot done since your vacation. You are going to need another one after Christmas is all over and done...

We are all done with the shopping and I got a few gifts wrapped already. We are going to get our DS and his X wifes' mailed out tomorrow.

Rick has called us now and he is safe in NV by his X wife....He could only speak for a min as he was at the airport and Nina was there to pick him up...That is all we need for Christmas...

So sorry you lost the angel saying a few prayers that you find it.

Steph I listened to the song on You Tube it had a great beat. The first one that I tried to watch had too many things moving in it for me.

I did the shopping thing yesterday, and was reminded how much I hate being in crowds and in stores all day. I picked up my washer and dryer, no room in the truck to get a tree so that had to wait, did get a lot of Christmas shopping done. Returned several things that needed returning, and got to the Mall to get an angel off the salvation army tree that I do every year, this year was a 2 month old boy, listed for presents were diapers, and teething rings and a high chair. Well high chairs were out of my budget, but I did get a box of 92 diapers a couple teething rings and a couple one piece sleepers, then I lost the angel that they give you with the request on it along with my Christmas shopping list, it unfortunately had the Christmas week menu and what I was supposed to make on it also. sigh. I didn't get home until 11 pm and had to go do chores, but it was nice to have already eaten in Bangor so that was all taken care of!
Today I have been picking up again, but slowly, only one more day off and I have to go to Millinocket to get my car inspected so half of that will be wasted. I have been putting off taking a bunch of boxes upstairs guess I will buck up and go do that now!

Good Morning All....

Have Aiyden today. Going to try and sort through what I bought yesterday and see if I'm done or not. I know I want to get a few things for a needy family my daughter is sponsoring at her salon and I forgot that yesterday, Hopefully that's all I forgot.

Have a great day everyone! Remember to move that body and resist the treats! emoticon

Hi Gwyn - always happy to see you stop by.

Barb, sounds like you have the parents' gifts handled - that's a good feeling isn't it?

Annie, I'm with you - LOVE this team - this was my first Spark team and I have such dear friends here - old and new.

Tee, I'm sorry you didn't feel this team was a good fit for you - wish you had shared with us what you felt was lacking for you, we truly try to make everyone feel welcome and a part of the "family."

Bern - LOL on the roll of quarters in the pocket! You're doing really well holding off on the goodies. So far so good here. My granddaughter made Christmas cookie and I did have a couple, but only one small one at a time. Tonight she took them to her Christmas party at McDonald's, so the temptation is gone. Whew! After Christmas dinner I send "take home" boxes with everyone so I don't have too much tempting me here! LOL

Jim, I'm sure you will make the very best of the holiday no matter what! You have such a great, positive attitude.

Can you say TIRED???

Left here around 10 this morning, didn't get back till around six! We met my spark friend Debbie and her grandson Jensen for lunch at Applebees and then we shopped till we dropped - just about literally. Hit the mall. Aiyden not a Santa fan there - he really didn't like him, which surprised us. Finally managed to get a picture with Andrea sitting with him. He did love the train that took him for a ride around the whole mall, though. Did some shopping there, then Target, Kohls and Walmart. I think I'm pretty well done - too tired to even haul it all out and look! LOL

Cold seems some better today, so I'm grateful for that.

Well, Andy's in the kitchen - wanna bet he's making spaghetti because I'm too tired to worry about it? It's the only thing he knows how to cook besides hot dogs. LOL

OK - so I was wrong - he made hamburgers! emoticon

Bern you crack me up everytime I read your postings. Sure you aren't a comedian looking for new material on here? Joyce, we decided to stay put for now. This holiday will be a challenge but we do enjoy our quiet homelife and each others company. We do have newneighbors with three yapper dogs that our dogs just stare at and watch bark when I walk.

Sorry Tee you didn't feel a good fit. Most of the time when trying to acclimate to a new team I find everyone pulls the freeze out game with you the first 15 or so posts until they figure out it is actually just a roll of quarters in your pocket.

Hi everyone! Tis every fat person's worst time of the year. I'm trying to avoid all those holiday yummies, so far I'm doing pretty good. A dear friend reminds me that even if you fall on your face, you are still moving forward. I'm hoping to reach January 2nd, (alive) and either the same or a bit lower in weight. Hope the same for all of you.


Well, I'm still alive, so there's thatÖ..

Joyce, I am so glad to see where your GS Austin passed the first part of his EMT test!!! We have a GS that is a welder too. Ken did take classes for welding years ago too...It is a good trade to have...Always good jobs out there for those guys...

Barb, I sure hope everything falls into place for you. I really wouldn't like exchanging names like that either. We never did anything like that at work. You have enough on your plate already before Christmas.

Happy Birthday to Jerry on his real birthday!!

Annie, We haven't heard anymore from Rick. We more than likely won't hear anything now until he calls from an airport in the states. It is so hard with him over there. We thought all of our worries were over when he retired from the Air Force after 20 years. He was in the states for five years and than when back over to Afghanistan as a contractor....

Hi Gwyn!!

So long Tee.

Jerry and I just got back from our walk. Today is his real birthday and we're celebrating again.

I have a lunch party at the Archives today. I made cream cheese cookies to bring and I even figured out the calories etc by putting the recipe in the spark recipe calculator

I was going to go shopping yesterday, but then realized if I went and got the washer and dryer I couldn't get them out of the truck by myself and I need to use the truck to take the lambs down today. So I did some pick up and organization, it seems like I make more of a mess when I do that then before, guess it has to get messy before it gets better!

Gwyn, just to say hi back!

Merri, so glad they got Rick out of there and he is safe! That must have been a tremendous worry for you. What a nice present from your grandson, food is such a big item to have to buy. I have in the past given my parents and brother meat from the farm for Christmas presents, last year I gave them each 100 lbs of beef, and many years I give them a lamb. I am not doing either this year because they need to use up stuff from the freezer too.

Peggy, tell Jerry happy birthday from us! Ravioli and meatballs sounds great!

Joyce, hope you are getting over your cold, shopping is not much fun sniffling!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, They love to go to olive garden when in Bangor so I think I will get them a certificate to that plus the food basket sounds like a good idea too. I usually pick them up a small goodie each week when I shop for them and pay for it separately, nothing big, maybe some muffins they like or fruit they wouldn't get like raspberries or blueberries, I got Dad some chestnuts he really likes them (so do I), this week it was a bunch of bananas.

I just read someones blog that said this was the last full week before Christmas and panicked, wow, how did that creep up on me! I need to get a gift for work too, it really annoys me that they decided to do gifts. Before you got an ornament if you wanted and they did a Yankee swap with the ornaments hanging on the tree. I don't really want to spend the money on people I don't particularly like or would be friends with, I tolerate them at work and do not socialize with them at all, it is hard to get gifts for people like that because you are not in sync with them. The Christmas party is also going to be at work Thursday night, and we are ordering out, more money I didn't want to spend, sigh, kind of Scrooge like I guess! oh well politics always come into the work place.

G'night all....

Didn't realize your son was a welder Annie! That's what my GS Austin does. Don't think I thought to mention it here, but he had his first part of the EMT testing yesterday and passed! He was really excited. This was the practical experience or "hands on" testing and next week he has the written test.

a H U G E thankyou God for the safety of Rick.. I for one was NOT happy when the government/news put all that stuff on TV/internet,, all it did was stir up unrest.. the government people NEVER thought ONE little bit, it would be awful for those working over there,, but again, happy Rick is safe.

Joyce:
thanks, our DS is a very kind-thoughtful guy , who in his 20's was asked to model,, but he wanted to be a welder !! lol
