Annie, you're SO right - things are changing fast! Strange not having Aiyden here in the evening. He won't be here tomorrow because Andrea has to work at the salon so she's leaving him with Brenda to see the parade in town for the EMS open house (Austin is part of that) and then we all go to GGD's birthday party and an open house for my two cousins. Not even sure if we have him Sunday since we're all going to Austin's GF's graduation - Brenda may just keep him and then she has him Sunday night. WOW! This will take some getting used to!

Gotta tell you I'm exhausted tonight. Went non stop from 6:30 this morning till now! I made dinner for the boys. I told Andy to go over with them and look at the apt if he wanted to. Austin said I could go and I said no, I was making dinner. So when they got back I asked if they were hungry and he said no, they'd gone to Dairy Queen! DANG! I said "I told you I was making dinner!" He said "Didn't know what you were making or who it was for." I told him "When have you EVER been here that I don't make dinner or breakfast for you and your friends! I'd made barbecued chicken breasts, pasta salad, corn and watermelon. Oh well, now he's having a bonfire out back with some of his buddies, so maybe they'll need a snack later. LOL

Debbie - that's awesome that you have a friend who is also winning the cancer battle! Sounds like you'd love to explore new places!

Austin and his buddies have hauled out a BUNCH of stuff from here - boy does it look bare! The apt won't technically be ready till the middle of next week but with Austin being available the landlady was kind enough to give him they key if they put everything in the bedrooms out of the way.

SO weird not to have Aiyden here in the evening though. :-(

Trudy, indeed life IS changing! No call yet, but Austin got the key from the landlady today - she said he could start moving stuff and just put it in the bedrooms while he's home from work till Monday. We SHOULD be signing the lease Wednesday. They got a new refrigerator and it was hinged wrong, so they had to order another and it will be delivered Wed. Austin said we'll love the new place....he was impressed - everything is new. Cupboards, countertops, carpeting, fresh paint, new fridge, new a/c. Can't ask for much more than that.

Andrea's room is empty. Austin plans to move his stuff here to that room for the time being. He was here to get a load of our stuff but he got a fire call. LOL His buddy is coming after work to help move stuff and he borrowed a trailer from another friend, so it'll go quickly. Only so much we can move till WE get to move with it.

QOTD: Only country I've been other than USA is Canada, and I honestly don't have a desire to be out of the country the way the world is these days. Used to really want to visit Mexico.

QOTD: This one is a tough one. I don't have any desire to live outside the USA!! But, if I had to, I'd go to Australia.
We have clouds this morning but, the heat and humidity have hit.....welcome summer!! But, by Sunday they're predicting 62 for a high....go figure.
Peggy, glad you made it to NJ and got to see your family. Those darn kids just keep growing up don't they????!!!
Joyce, emoticon life, is changing isn't it? I'm glad you'll all be in the same apt. complex. At least you'll be able to see Andrea and Aiyden often. Did you get the call about your apt.?
I'm having a person come give me an estimate on a new garage today. Mine really needs to be replaced.
Merri, I love the picture of you with your family at the Sears Tower. What a great photo!!
Everyone have a great day!!

Morning All;

Yeah....it's Friday! Although I shouldn't complain as this has been a short week for me.

Have a retirement BBQ/party to go to tomorrow and then Sunday is free. Time to catch up on my housework.

QOTD: I'd go to England. I've been there quite often and haven't seen 1/10th of what they have. The countryside is beautiful, people are great and they speak english! Only thing to deal with is the currency and that's not too bad.

QOTD: Where would I live out of the country for two years? I had to ask Mr Ken about this one LOL as we would have to go together.....We both agree that Germany would be our place to go...

It was so nice here yesterday. It was as high as 90! We even had to turn the A/C on.

Today is our banana/milk run. Ken thinks that if the date on the bottle says today's date.....we have to get a new milk. I personally think it is the date they can't it on the shelf anymore. But, if that is what makes him happy...go for it LOL...

Ken has to go and help his brother install a garbage disposal this morning at the apartments his brother manages first, than off to the grocery store...

I want to revisit the "fear " question -- my one fear is falling -- speicifcally falling from a higher place like when I am up on a ladder or something.

If i could live any place -- I'd like to live in Australia -- If i did I don't know if I would come back to USA

Good Morning.....

We had two inches of rain last night when the storms rolled through. Had an inch the night before, so I think we're caught up on moisture. I don't think there's more in the forecast till Saturday evening.

Andrea's getting her apt. keys after work today and they'll start moving stuff tomorrow. The landlady told her they are doing the final cleaning on ours and we should get the call to look at it today or tomorrow, probably start moving Monday. Oh joy!

QOTD: I think the only major fear I have is of being in deep water. Last trip to Myrtle Beach I actually learned to jump the waves where it wasn't too deep - that was a major accomplishment for me. I have to be able to touch bottom!

Morning All;

QOTD: BUGS!! I hate bugs! Now you would think with as big as I am and as little as they are it would be a no brainer. But NOOOOO The other night, made my nightly bathroom run and lo and behold, right on the TP was a 1,000 legger!! HATE THEM!! Course I killed it, but then couldn't sleep the rest of the night thinking that maybe he had a friend that was lurking around someplace. I could go on and on with 'bug' stories - they have 'terrorized' me my whole life!

QOTD: I have overcome so many of my fears since my husband died. I can't think of anything right off the bat. I've had to be tough when I didn't know I could be. I've traveled out of the country. I've driven myself all over. I've made new friends. I'm in a good place now, but, whew.....there for a while....
We have such a beautiful summer day today. It's suppose to be 85. Storms late afternoon.
I'm going to help a friend do the pots for her deck this morning. Then I'm going to water aerobics this afternoon. That will really feel good after the sweaty job of doing those pots.
I had the neighbors over last night for burgers on the grill. We had corn on the cob too. It was really simple but so good. We sat outside until almost 9. Such a nice evening.
I hope you all have a great day.

QOTD: THURSDAY! If you could instantly overcome one of your fears, what would it be?

My biggest fear that I have is being by water any where it is dark and unknown. I remember one time going to this nice park and walking around and all of a sudden I started to really sweat. I just stopped and asked someone else walking by if they knew what this one little house was......There was a well inside of it....I didn't stay around that area very long LOL

I have always wondered if it had anything to do with my mom putting my in the bathroom closet when she punished me when I was young and I could hear our toilet flush and I was in the dark......It surely has disabled me from going to a lot of places in my life...

So, today is going to be one beautiful day. Now what do we want to do??? I know we are going to grill out. Our favorite hamburgers LOL...We only buy the sirloin meat and no flaring up at all...

Annie, I'm sorry you aren't feeling well and that really stinks you have to drive so far for your meds on top of it! Hugs!

Merri, we have t'storm warnings getting close to us. So far it's still sunny. Those poor people in Texas! OMG!

Glad you beat the rain getting the grass cut Trudy. I kinda miss mowing, especially when I see the foster son doing a lousy job - he skips patches and I am soooo anal when it comes to the lawn looking good! Oh well - soon I won't have to look at it. Still no call on the apt., so not sure what the timetable for the move will be for sure.

Barb - congratulations to your daughter! That's awesome. Cripe, all I have to do is hear "Pomp and Circumstance" and I'm crying, even if I don't know anyone graduating. LOL

YAY!! Grass is mowed before the rain starts!!

I agree with all of Joyce, all of her celebrity irritants are mine as well!! Spoiled little brats all!!

It's really looking like a storm here. I don't think it's suppose to be stormy....we'll see.

My bil in TN has been in the hospital since March 17. He's so sick he can't go to a nursing home. His heart is wearing out from being there so long. I just feel so bad for all of them.
They're the ones I went to their 50th wedding anniversary last year.
I tried calling my sil this morning to see if she wants some moral support. I could go down. I just don't know what else to do for her/them. I've been calling and sending cards regularly.

Morning All;

I have had a very busy week! Daughter graduated on Thursday with her Masters - graduation ceremony was really nice. I was so very proud of her, I promised myself I wouldn't cry - but I did! She did too!

Then on Friday drove to Michigan to visit with my cousin. Spent the long weekend with her and her husband and drove back yesterday. Had such a nice visit - will have to go back next year. They are getting older (73 & 82) and I want to see/visit them as much as I can. Life can be too short.

So....all the QOTDs:

Thurs - don't remember the first I saw the Atlantic, since I grew up in NJ - we went every summer. There are pictures of me around 2 on the beach. Saw the Gulf of Mexico when I was about 14 and the Pacific when I was 19.

Fri - My grandfather made fried chicken every Sunday, so I can't see a fried chicken without thinking of him!

Sat - the VFW puts a flag on my Dad's grave every year

Sun - the last natl park was the Great Smokey Mtn in 2013

Mon - the last song I danced to with my Dad was "the way you look tonight", so whenever I hear that song I want to dance, so I can remember him.

Tues - never on TV

Wed - Kim Kardashian

Good Morning!

We had quite a thunderstorm roll through here last night, a good rain, too. It was at bedtime, so it was nice to hear it!

Andrea's off to the salon, Brenda has Aiyden and our lunch date has been postponed, so this should be a good day to get things accomplished!

QOTD, There is a show by PBS called Made in Maine, they feature a business that makes a produce here in Maine. They came to the Farm and filmed me making butter, and various things around the farm. I remember my neighbor saying to me that he could make butter he had seen me make it so often on the reruns!

QOTD, What celebrity irritates you the most, guess I have to pass on this one since I don't watch TV or movies and don't even recognize any celebrities.

What a great pic Merri.

We're in Columbia SC and had a pretty good day of driving we had to get off an exit to avoid all 3 lanes closed on 95 but we were able to get around it.

Now we're relaxing in the hotel room. Jerry is on the floor doing his exercises.

QOTD I was with my sister in the audience of Regis and Kathy Lee. We got to sit right on the stage at the side of them. That was a long time ago.

Hi ALL !!

qotd:
I was on a Portland show , like Jeopardy,, in the audience.. My BFF was one of the 3 people,, and since there were only 6 of us in the audience,, each break I had to move by someone else,, take on/off my jacket to make it look like there was a lot of people watching the game show..I am in every "shot".. I have an old VHS of the show....BOY was I younger, and thinner too...LOL

I mowed our lawn yesterday inbetween the wet/misty stuff.. I used push mower, then DH put the bagger on the rider,, and I finished,, boy was THAT easier, but I had to dump the heavy containers of grass,, oh well, got a good work out....

Trudy:
sad for you for family to move to Portland OR,, but GREAT for me,, I will have to make the treck in and say HI and give you a (( hug)) !! DH usually has lots of appointments at the VA hospital so I am in/out of Portland all the time....

Hello everyone!

Boy, it looks like Texas is really getting hammered with rain! We have rain coming in later and looks like a wet weekend, but nothing like they're getting!

Andy's brother and his wife are coming this afternoon for awhile. He's going to take our old computers. He likes to tinker with them and they'll be out of our way! Have enough leftovers from yesterday I don't have to worry about cooking. :-)

My friend had to cancel her birthday lunch with us tomorrow, so that frees up another day for us. She's going on vacation Thursday and we'll reschedule when she gets back. By then we should be moved.....if all goes well.

QOTD: I was on a show in Cleveland that was like "American Bandstand" when I was in high school and a few years ago I did an interview for a news channel concerning the guy who murdered my foster son.

Good morning,
QOTD: Once when I was a kid I was on local tv. The Sheriff Sid show! Once not too long ago when the local tv station filmed a segment on the group I volunteer for.
I hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day. My daughter, dil and grandson were here from Sat. afternoon until Monday afternoon. That's the last time I'll see them before their move to Portland, OR. We have made tentative plans for me to go out there in Jan. We sure did have a nice weekend.
Back to the Y today. I also have the last volunteer spot until the fall. Hard to believe the school year is coming to a close.
It's suppose to rain here most of the week. I hope it stops long enough for me to get the yard mowed.
Everyone have a great week.

I have been on TV twice now. I was on with our school choir when I was in high school. Than I was on with Richard Simmons in 1981 in Milwaukee, WI

We have the sun out here yet, but they are calling for rain once again today....

Not much going on here today. Just have to make a check out for the cable bill and the utility bill too...

The concert was great!!! It brought a lot of tears to my eyes. There was a pilot from WWII who is the only one left who flew some sort of missions but he was 95 years old and he had a lot of flying time.

See you all later I'm going and checking my list to make sure everything is packed.

Awwww, I hope he feels better soon Annie. Boy, do I hear you on the liking quiet these days! I think that was the big selling point for me on the apartment!

Had brunch with Manasa and her family and what a pleasure it was to meet them! It always amazes me how we meet Spark friends and it's just like we've known each other for years! Time went too fast, but they have a long drive back home to VA.

I stopped at WM and got a few things I needed, then DD said "grab some BBQ stuff and we'll come over later and cook out. There goes MY quiet day! LOL

Austin went and bought a tree, a bush and some mulch - think I'll go out and help them clean out the flower beds. Tickles me he is taking such an interest in the yard.

Barb, I know, it will be mighty unusual if we do go by ourselves. Went to Nashville by ourselves the first time years ago and all DH kept saying was "Andrea would have loved this." Have a feeling this time it would be "Aiyden would have loved this" - LOL

Annie, you must be exhausted, especially after all the medical running you've had to do on top of it! How's DH feeling?

Peggy, enjoy your day! My daughter Amy was in a re-enactment at Century Village in Burton yesterday. Her son Chance was big in to that a few years ago, then he got interested in the fire department instead.

We're off to Bob Evans soon to meet a Spark friend for brunch. Manasa from Navy Ninjas is in Ohio to see a friend and her new baby so we arranged to meet on their way back home today.

QOTD: I like most country songs like "Cotton Eyed Joe" and enjoy doing the "Electric Slide".

QOTD What song do you love to dance to? Guess I haven't danced in years!

Joyce, that is funny I can picture you sneaking out to the car to vacation without the kids! Hope you get to have a relaxing vacation for the two of you!

I am doing some grilled chicken, corn on the cob, and potato salad for supper tonight and bringing it up to my parents. Kind of stuck on what to make for desert, thinking of blond brownies, haven't done them for ages and ages!

QOTD: What song do you love to dance to?

I have never been much of a dancer at all. We did do some square dancing years ago. I loved doing that. But, not sure what songs we danced to tho...

It is still raining off and on here yet. It was really ok with us as it helped our flowers...

Not much going on here today. We are going to grill hamburgers and that is about it..Too wet to cut the grass yet today.

Good morning everyone!!!! Hope everyone is having a safe and fun holiday weekend.

We went for our walk and we will go for our final Bagel King on our way home from Jerry's concert Today's concert is in a cemetery and the HS ROTC reenacts scenes from all the different wars. There are also Civil War Re enactors. It is a beautiful program.


QOTD We usually just dance at weddings.

Should we not dance just because they don't hear the music?

We dance at a place that offers various types of dancing such as Contra, folk dancing, Scandinavian Dance and the like -- so I don't know the names of the dances to any of the songs. When I hear a tune I just know the dance and do it. I tend to like Israeli and Balkan dancing the best, followed by Scandinavian dances

it does not matter how slow you go as long as you do not give up
