Good morning everyone!

We just got back from our walk and had breakfast

We slept until 7:05 which is really late for us.

We watched the stage show of Grease that was on FOX back in March we had dvr'd it and we just got to watch it. It was very good but I didn't get to bed until 12:30 almost an hour later than usual.

Nothing much planned for today. Have a great day

Peggy from NY &Florida

Good morning from a hot steamy Sat..It is already 79 and is going to be close to the middle 90's. Ken took a picture yesterday where it showed on our thermometer in the shade at 104!

So yesterday after Mr Ken went to his chiropractor and than got his B12 shot, he wanted to go and get himself a new pillow and tomato slicer at Bed and Bath. I had four coupons. We only used the one for his pillow as they didn't have what Mr Ken wanted in the slicer.

So, as you all know me by now, I seen a lady getting ready to check out with mutable things in her basket...So, I gave her the other three coupons that we didn't need. We had plenty at home too. She came running up to us after she came out of the store and said she saved $8 with the coupons!!! I do think God guides us at times as we were going to go to the one in Kenosha instead of the one we went to...That way I got to make her one happy camper....

I hope all of you have a nice cool weekend. It is going to be hot all week too they are saying right now..GREAT. I am not one for all of this heat...

Joyce, Have fun with your wonderful family. I just LOVE the pictures that you guys post of facebook...

Oh yes, When Ken went back to his chiropractor, we did mention about them holding onto the extra monies that they had gotten back from Medicare for Ken deductable. How Ken had really gave the lady at the hospital heck because he couldn't figure out how he owed them $79 in co-pay when he had already paid in early Jan. Well, were they ever cooperative with us LOL...A check for $112 will be mailed out on Mon......

Hi.....got into Wytheville last night around 10. Didn't feel like getting the computer out. We got up, had breakfast and then I called the motel here in Johnson City to see if we could arrange an early check in and they were sooo helpful! So we packed up and headed here. Went to WM for a few things and checked in here around 1. A few of our cousins stopped by to say hello. They might be having a cookout later. Robbie's going to let us know. Jim is on his way over from Rock Hill. Be here around 6. Brenda has Aiyden at the pool, it's right outside our door.

Good morning to all of you. It is 74 here now and going as high as 86. That is what they say and than when we got into the high 90's they just say OH OH

So yesterday, as we were waiting for the Fedex people to bring the Cubs tickets, we were watching the men behind us put a new roof on the house and garage. Oh boy, was it ever warm!
Well, you know me by now LOL....I went out twice with bottles of water for them. They were Mexican men and didn't know much English. They knew water and God Bless...

Rick asked me why don't I make them Mr Ken's famous hamburgers....Oh no what next...We won't be home more than likely at lunch time tho. Ken has to see the chiropractor and than off to get his B12 injections. Than he wants to go to Farm & Fleet. He has a $50 gift card for there from our oldest DD for his late birthday gift.

Joyce, I know you are enjoying yourself with you family traveling. I love looking at the nice pictures you all send. It is like you have me in your pocket at times LOL

Hi All;

Like everywhere else, it's very hot here too. It was 94 when I got out of work tonight. Supposed to be hotter tomorrow with maybe rain/thunder storms.

Roz & Joyce, I don't know how you do it with the GC. I have Ben for 4 hours and I'm done! I couldn't imagine all day!

Merri, so glad you got those tickets - that will be something new for you - a game 'in person'. I too am a baseball fan, like the Yanks - always have. My Dad was a Yankee fan and his brother a Dodgers fan (when they were in Brooklyn). My Uncle moved to LA and Dad always said it was to follow his Dodgers! Who knows - maybe it was!!

Gwyn, so you like the cubbies too - I have a good friend from Chicago who is a die-hard Cubbie fan....we always teased him that he must like always being on the 'losing team'!

Peggy, one of my favorite thing is clean sheets! I love laundry day because when I crawl into bed at night I have....clean sheets! I always say if I ever win the lottery I'm going to have clean sheets every night - with someone else making the bed!

Joyce - safe travels.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and stay cool! I'm thinking I'll be spending time inside also.

Zone 4: Mission # 5 Friday



Today is the day to remake your bed. This may take a little longer than usual but so well worth it. Strip your bed and remake it. Get someone to help you flip the mattress, if you can't then try just to turn it around. If you have some fabric spray such as febreeze, spray your mattress and pillows. Then place those crisp freshly washed sheets and blanket on. Take extra care when making the bed. Really tuck those corners in and fluff the pillows. An extra tip is to toss your pillow in the dryer with a dryer sheet for added freshness and fluff. Use your bedspread or comforter and make up the rest of the bed. Take your time and know how much you will enjoy getting into your bed tonight and how wonderful it will feel.

Maybe tonight you will go to bed a little earlier or stay in bed a little longer tomorrow morning just taking some time to enjoy
something so simple yet rewarding.

Hi everyone!! Went to WW's this morning and gained .2 again.

After lunch Jerry and I went grocery shopping and then I got home and got pork chops ready for dinner. I also cut up some veggies to roast and we're having rice.

That is sooo awesome Merri!!! I'm hoping to get to a Tribe game before we leave - really going to miss my games. Have to get the baseball package so I can still watch them. I used to go a lot with my sister - her boyfriend got their company field box tickets to a lot of games and she'd always take me and Brenda with her! :-)

Good morning once again from a hot K-town. We are at 80 and going to go as high as 95! It is the dew point that gets us here. So much humidity..

So, Mr Ken just had to get this one darn post way in the back yard done. He was mostly in the shade but no wind at all back there under the evergreen tree. He got it done tho and now he is one happy camper. His blood sugar this morning was great....72!! His feet weren't swollen at all.

We wanted to stay home as Rick said that he had gotten some Cubs tickets now too for him & I to go see the Cubbies play on Aug 18th...He has never seen a Cubs game in person and wanted to share it with his good old mom....Mr Ken said he can't sit that long....He got the best of the best tickets. We are going to be in the second row by the Cubs dugout....

Joyce, Yup, I am going to be going to two Cubs games this summer. I have never been to one and now I am going to be going to two of them. Our SIL wanted to give this gift to his mom & I for Mother's day. Now Rick sees how excited I am and wants to go there too. It is for both games with the Milwaukee team against the Chicago team. I really don't watch the Milwaukee game at all. Rick & I used the watch the Cubbies ever since I can remember...

Good Evening Everyone,
As school is on vacation and my s-i-l is also on vacation I don't have to make the weekly trip to my daughter's to watch Keneisha,but I had her and her 8 yr old sister with me for the past three days, it was challenging-- these children are so used to getting up early when they are at home by 5 am they are up and the 6 year old hits the floor running. emoticon

As much as I love my grands I was relieved when their dad collected them today.
The older is good once she can run about in the yard and also watch her favourite TV shows.
She even video taped shows she can watch on the ride home about 80 minutes drive.

We have had some rain here but it soon passes.

Have a blessed evening all.

Much love,
Roz.

LOL - I was ahead of you on that Fly Lady Peggy - I did that over the weekend, have a gallon size ziplock bag full of costume jewelry I used to wear to the office. Going to donate it to the church rummage sale. Also got the extra belts/scarves out of the closet. :-)

Barb, this TN trip is for Andy's family reunion. Otherwise we wouldn't be doing it. Supposed to go again next month to take daughter Amy to Pigeon Forge before we leave Ohio, but with all her trouble with Chance, that may not happen.

Merri, just be sure Ken drinks plenty of water in that heat! And I sure hope your a/c holds out! Whew!

Hi All;

Another hot day here also. Guess the 'dog days' of summer are certainly upon us! I heard that it will get increasingly hotter each day until it hits the high 90s this weekend! Well I guess that's what A/C is for!

Merri, hope your old A/C holds out for you - it would be miserable to have none. Although when I was young we didn't have any at our home. Mom just kept the blinds closed to keep the sun out and if it got too bad we headed to the basement. Guess that's just how it was.

Gwyn, Hi to you

Joyce, In the middle of all your packing you're heading to TN? You really do get around.

Annie, glad your dentist read her own reviews and decided to change.

Peggy, you do keep yourself busy. That's a good Fly Lady today with the jewelry. I have lots of costume jewelry - just seems a waste to throw it out. I think I'll put it in baggies and save for the next time I go to 'Dress for Success'. I'm sure they can use it.

Zone 4: Mission #4 Thursday


Accessories can contribute to some of the biggest clutter problems! Today I want you to take 10 minutes and purge your jewelry boxes, chest, whatever. Now I am not talking about the family heirlooms here. I am talking about the costume stuff that we have collected, been given or don't even know where it came from jewelry.

Remember the rule: If you haven't worn it in the past year - toss it, don't love it - toss it, and it doesn't bring you joy then you toss it. Those earrings that have been missing a mate for years and you have held on "just in case". Well, if it hasn't shown up by now, it is time to let go.

Let Go of the scarves and belts that you haven't worn in years and you really won't wear. They are just taking up space.You can throw this stuff away, you can donate it, but get it out of your house. Don't hold on to a box full of costume jewelry for your kids to play with or to use for a craft. IT WILL STILL BE JUNK IN YOUR HOUSE if you do that! Get it OUT!

Have fun with this one!

Hi everyone.

Peggy, enjoy your tea today! And the crocheting.....I haven't touched anything since I finished the last afghan. I have two baby sets to mail for showers I can't be at and I'm out of those, too. Need to get busy soon. I did go through my crochet pattern notebook the other day and got it in order.

Merrii, sometimes I don't FEEL too organized, but I try. We have to get to the store today at some point. Brenda's had our van since Jim left, so it's not been possible to get out anywhere. She's not working today and has the kids, so today's the day! LOL We leave for TN tomorrow.

Good morning from K-town where we are at 74 degrees right now and only getting hotter and hotter as we go through the week/weekend..A high today of 89!!! I want to live in our basement for a week LOL....

I am so worried about our A/C. It is 29 yrs old and still chugging along just fine. We are keeping the air at 79 and not using it at night at all. We turn it off to when we know we are going to be gone over an hour or so...

Joyce, You are just so organized. I like to be that way too. Some times it gets to be too much for me tho...

It sounds like there are alot of us that are going to be really hot towards the end of the week/weekend....Just stay cool and do things that can be done inside. We can always take pictures of our DS's things that keeping coming in from his ebay stuff that he keeps buying...

Today our oldest DD turns 58. Oh my, now that make me feel old? Nope LOL

Hi All;

Just got back from the shore - had a great time! The weather was perfect, sunny and in the 90's every day - just what you need at the shore. My sister and BIL came for a visit on Saturday to help us celebrate Jerry's bday. Had such a good time with them. Monday night I rained while we were at dinner - really came down, but by the time we left it was all cleared up. Amazing how fast 5 days can go when you're on vacation - but at work.....it drags!

Sounds like everyone was busy; Trudy in WI, Joyce packing, Peggy working on her 'trees', Merri, sorry about your 'church friend', Annie good that you're taking your trips easier. Gwyn trying to get her 2 animals to be friends and a big welcome to Henry!

Hi all....

A nice day here today. Had the kids, but they were good today. Some days are easier than others. LOL

Talked to a woman at our bank that I've known for years. She said we can keep our checking account there, that they have accounts all over the country. She said we might want to open a savings account in Rock Hill just to have an account at a local bank. She said we should change our checking account to something called a KASASA account. That way anytime we have an ATM charge with our debit card, it's refunded and we can earn cashback on debit card purchases as well. So, going to stop in and take care of that.

Andrea took Adalyn for her regular checkup today. Doctor said she's a little underweight. Funny thing is he said Aiyden was overweight last month. Aiyden won't eat for anything and Adalyn eats everything in sight. Go figure! Andrea told him we were moving and would like to see him before we go. He said no appt. necessary, just stop in anytime.

Have an insurance agent lined up for the auto and renters insurances since our company doesn't service SC. So, getting all this stuff lined up.

Still waiting to see what goes on with Chance. I guess there was a Y Camp vandalized and they're trying to pin that on the same kids. Chance said he knows absolutely nothing about it. The lawyer said he doesn't think he'll be able to keep the case in municipal court and they're trying to lump all the cases into one, regardless of who did what. Could be bad. He did say even if it's a felony charge, it would come off in three years when he's 21, so that was better news. Poor Amy is beside herself.

Annie, that's too bad your DH won't do those pre-planned tours. They really sound nice and takes a lot of the worry out of it all.

Trudy, what a lovely picture - I could sure see relaxing with that view!

Merri, hope it's not getting too hot there. Looks like mid to upper 90's here this weekend, but we'll be in TN. Doubt it'll be much better there.

Peggy, no kids tomorrow, so a good day for "anti-procrastination"! LOL

Zone 4: Mission #3 Wednesday



It is anti-procrastination day and 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!

PS : If you have some extra pretty, nice sheets for your bed, make sure they are washed and ready for Friday's mission. This means pillow cases and blankets also.

Good morning from K-town where we are at 70 degrees right now and it is suppose to get as high as 85! I am NOT for this hot weather. Tomorrow they are saying rain..We need it so bad.

I have even heard of dogs getting things in their eyes when they are looking out of the windows from the cars...They do look so cute tho with their ears flapping in the wind LOL

Today we are going for a funeral at our church. My friend was what I call a "church" sister friend. We really never hung out together, but seen each other six days a week at church...She even started wearing her hair like mine. She was four yrs old than me..My older sister..Nice and short and cool as Mr Ken says all of the time. We didn't go to the wake last night. I just want to remember her the way I had seen her in church...She is now with her mom whom I admired so much from church too. My second mom.

Gwyn:
I bet that WAS some adventure,, getting your puppy back safely and quickly..

quite a few yrs ago.. DH and I were driving through a camp ground ( windows open in the back seat of the car, for our then 2 dogs to get fresh air ) and DH and I talked/looked at camp sites, drove around, it was a huge-camp ground.. when I happend to look in the back seat,, ONLY 1 dog.. our Billy was GONE.
.
he had jumped out the window SOME place in the camp ground , where,when ? we had no idea.. DH drove around/around/around , us looking,, we saw a pickup,, stopped them and asked if they had seen a dog, one that looked like his brother in the back seat?

they go,, yes,, he was chasing squirls on some loop #.. off we drove and found Billy STILL chasing squirls !!
from then on we ONLY cracked the back seat windows !!!!!

excited to declutter our bedroom tomorrow,, sure funny HOW quickly these challenges come around and in NEED of doing it AGAIN.. !!

Zone 4: Mission #2 Tuesday

We are in the Master Bedroom this week and we can't stress enough to you how important it is for your mental health to have this room decluttered. Being surrounded by clutter while you sleep is just not good for you.

For today your mission is to do a 27 fling boogie in the bedroom, grab that trash bag and start tossing. Anything counts, old pantyhose to junk mail.

One BabyStep at a time!

Good Morning all...

Gwyn, that had to be scary having your dog loose like that! Glad it ended OK!

Merri - we're at 76 this morning and I think it's supposed to be 90 by the weekend. We had a big thunderstorm roll through this morning. Usually we can't hear the thunder much being on the middle floor, but we sure could hear this one! Lasted quite awhile, too.

The RNC starts today in Cleveland. I'm sure praying it's all peaceful. You couldn't pay me to go near downtown this week! In fact we're leaving for TN on Thursday rather than Friday to beat the traffic leaving Cleveland on Friday morning!

Good morning from K-town where we are at 71 right now and it is going to be climbing to a high of 85! They say we are going to be really hot here this week...Great!!! Just have to stay in most of the day. Just wait until Jan and than I will be telling you how darn cold it is LOL..

Joyce, Oh that had to be something for Jim to not be able to get in the apartment after traveling all of that way...Good thing they got it all figured out.

Joyce, Wow, that has to be so nice with no babysitting today. You will be able to get so much more done without having to tend to them..Sometimes tho, it seemed like we were more organized when the little ones were here as we knew we had to get our things out of the way first...

Zone 4: Mission #1 Monday



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, set your timer and go.

PS : If you have some extra pretty, nice sheets for your bed, make sure they are washed and ready for Friday's mission. This means pillow cases and blankets also.



Zone 4: Mission #4 Thursday



Accessories can contribute to some of the biggest clutter problems! Today I want you to take 10 minutes and purge your jewelry boxes, chest, whatever. Now I am not talking about the family heirlooms here. I am talking about the costume stuff that we have collected, been given or don't even know where it came from jewelry.

Remember the rule: If you haven't worn it in the past year - toss it, don't love it - toss it, and it doesn't bring you joy then you toss it. Those earrings that have been missing a mate for years and you have held on "just in case". Well, if it hasn't shown up by now, it is time to let go.

Let Go of the scarves and belts that you haven't worn in years and you really won't wear. They are just taking up space.You can throw this stuff away, you can donate it, but get it out of your house. Don't hold on to a box full of costume jewelry for your kids to play with or to use for a craft. IT WILL STILL BE JUNK IN YOUR HOUSE if you do that! Get it OUT!

Have fun with this one!



Zone 4: Mission # 5 Friday



Today is the day to remake your bed. This may take a little longer than usual but so well worth it. Strip your bed and remake it. Get someone to help you flip the mattress, if you can't then try just to turn it around. If you have some fabric spray such as febreeze, spray your mattress and pillows. Then place those crisp freshly washed sheets and blanket on. Take extra care when making the bed. Really tuck those corners in and fluff the pillows. An extra tip is to toss your pillow in the dryer with a dryer sheet for added freshness and fluff. Use your bedspread or comforter and make up the rest of the bed. Take your time and know how much you will enjoy getting into your bed tonight and how wonderful it will feel.

Maybe tonight you will go to bed a little earlier or stay in bed a little longer tomorrow morning just taking some time to enjoy
something so simple yet rewarding.

Enjoy the family tree work, Peggy!! I'm still trying to find time to go through photos someday! LOL

Annie, nice picture!!

Taking a break, watching the end of the Tribe game. So far we're winning. Our catcher got hurt on a running play though. Poor Gomes has had a rough year!

Andy and I packed up a lot of our bedroom today. I went through my jewelry armoire and bagged up a bunch of it for the church rummage sale. I don't wear jewelry too often anymore - not like I did when I was working at the office every day. We boxed up exra bedding, books, CD's, all the pictures off the walls, the stuff out of the big curio cabinet, etc. I finally had to slow Andy down when he started to take apart the touch lamps. I reminded him we still have to live here for six weeks - can't pack up EVERYTHING just yet. LOL

Good Morning!

Nice picture Merri! Beautiful day here, too.

We went to the OxRoast Fair with Brenda last night. A band called Disco Inferno was playing. Not my usual choice of music genre, but these guys are amazing performers! Played music from Saturday Night Fever, Staying Alive, Grease, etc., which were all fun movies back in the day. They had the crowd up and dancing all night. Had an ox roast sandwich and some homemade pierogies. Yum!

Jim made it to SC without any problems. He called Brenda as soon as he got to the apartment door. We were in the van so she put him on speaker phone and first thing he says - the key won't open the door! Can you imagine how he felt? Well, after some checking, he realized he was trying the storage unit key - not the apartment key! LOL Finally got in and no lights turned on! I don't know if he hit the wrong switch or if he had to flip the breaker but it all worked out. Whew!

No babysitting today and nowhere we have to go, so will pack some more stuff I think. Tonight is the Queen of Hearts drawing - I think the pot is over $400,000! Wouldn't that be something??

Have a great day everyone!!

Here is our green grass that we have been watering for two days. I guess some play the lottery and hope to win green stuff , we water and our grass and know we are going to get some green stuff for sure...LOL

We did get a little bit of rain before. Not really enough to do much tho. They are calling for more later today.

We are at a cool 68 right now and it is going to of course get warmer...I love the cooler days...
