emoticon So excited!! Finally got over the depression I was fighting last week!
Basically missing Cindy (and keeping it trapped inside instead of talking about it) I think SILENCE bugs me more than anything. Once I can verbalize things I do much better.

p.s. Going to get my first Tattoo on Sept 6th (Maybe..going to see the artwork first). Will tell you more about that later. I swore I would NEVER get one...but heck!!! I feel moved and have for a long time.

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY - My brother has been texting me LOTS more than usual! I love it!! Hearing from him. Mom just did a will and told us both that she split everything for us. Adam texted me and said "Yeah..now that you two are talking, you get half of what would have been all mine"!!! ha ha ha...he is a FUNNY BOY!!!

JUICE - Cucumber Fuzz: That's the title. Cucumbers, peaches, celery and a lemon!! YUM YUM!! It tastes amazing. Can't wait for dinner!!

emoticon 10 lbs (per Sparks). It's been 6 weeks. I haven't really done much. I need to work out more to get toned and stuff. But just 6 weeks of drinking Veggies and getting in good foods....and I have lost 10 official pounds. I weigh in with Sparks every MONDAY! So it's a SLOW process...but I like it. I'm at least going in the RIGHT direction!! WHOO HOOO....going to keep eating me some VEGGIES / FRUIT!!

emoticon AHHH. So to make a LONG story short. My best friend (JEN) and I have talked much over the last few weeks about ME doing a SERMAN at my church. Ya right!! Like I could do one. (P.s. I love giving speeches that was one of my favorite College courses). Anyway...I keep praying about it. And wondering WHEN to talk to TOBY my pastor. WELL....last night during Bible Study (only 5 of us showed up last night, and Toby leads it). We were discussing stuff we were reading and I popped off with just one of my "GOD DOESN"T THINK LIKE WE DO.....etc". AND Dennis goes - Steph you need to do a serman, and Toby said 'YES you do", and Patricia said "yes". And as the night went on...I would say stuff and Toby and Dennis and Patricia all said "ADD THAT TO YOU SERMAN"!!! LOL So....I'm really praying about it...and going to start writing down ideas on what I want to share....and once I have it written down I will take it to Toby and have him put me on the list for a SUNDAY!!! YIKES...excited...Scary....OH MY HOW FUN!!!!

okay that's enough prattling for one day!!!
Hope you all have a great day!

Hi gals.....

Peggy, sounds like you have a busy day ahead, but a fun one. Haven't heard back from my cousin yet, she said she had to ask my aunt (who's not online at all).

Marilyn, I just bought Andy a new small flat screen TV for our bedroom for his birthday (Aug 2). We have a really old TV in there with a bad picture. I don't watch it but he does, so figured I'd get him a better one. Wouldn't you know yesterday he was looking at the Sunday paper ads and mentioned how inexpensive TV's are now and we should get one for the bedroom. LOL

Andrea works 12-3 or 4 today, not sure which, but a short shift, so an easy day for me.

Going to be around 90 here. The kids got in the pool last night but the water still wasn't too warm. We get a couple of really hot days and then it gets cool again. I guess that's what's happening this week, too.

Hope you all have a great day!!!

Good morning everyone so nice to see so much chatter.

I'm off to Lauratta's for tea this morning after a 9 o'clock meeting with the President of the womans club so that she can tell me what she wants me to work on this year. This afternoon is Hands in Motion

Hello ladies,

On again late. Checking in with posts. Did a little bit of cleaning myself today. Surprise for me!! Stopped at my son's(Tim) this evening, They were just finishing eating and DS asked if I had eaten. He had cooked brats on the grill and had homegrown corn fixed already. Invited me to have some, so I did. Made plans with him to go to Best Buy on Wed night. Shopping for a new TV. Been watching a small TV in computer room. Our big TV is downstairs where I do not go since I don't have much reason to be there. Have never had a TV in the LR, so that will be a first for me. Have a great night and good day tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who wished me better,I actually walked just over a mile and went swimming\seabathing for about 40 minutes this morning. After running a few errands I had quite a long nap today.Glad to say that the sinuses feel much clearer today.

Ania!--------Good hearing from you ! emoticon

Marilyn-------So glad that your son & his family were able to get a new house.
I know what you mean about FB, I play a few games on there and it does absorb a lot of my time some days AND I must add here that I've not been able to win win Joyce yet!! emoticon she is a real pro ladies!

Have a blessed evening all.

What a weekend!! Long and busy!!

Friday - Bunco - had a blast!! What fun. Huge room of people and lots of laughs!

Sat - early morning wake up. Went to a friends to pick up her "SHRED" papers all boxed up and drove them to a "free Shred" place (once a year they are in town and we helped our friend who cannot drive take her stuff there).

Then the Farmers Market - then went looking for STARFRUIT but it's out of season. So none for this time.

Sun - Church and then went to visit Micki in the hospital. She looks good. Has her color back. Thoughts that MAYBE she can go home on WED??? But not sure. Will keep you all updated!!

Mon - work is busy busy!!! Bible Study tonight!

For a change we've had lovely 3 days in a row, sunny and warm. Today the 5 of us went to Anstruther, a small quaint village about 40 min from Dundee on the coast for a fish and chips lunch and a play on the beach. The girls played and we just sat in the emoticon

Hi Barb - where's your Spark Page? I'd love to help pick gallons of raspberries, they are sooo expensive here now and we all love them.

Annie - an Erma Bombeck book should get you emoticon Enjoy it!

Merri - I do the same, I colour my hair BEFORE getting it cut, don't want to go to the hairdresser with grey hair, lol.

Joyce - I hope Andy's work will bring the hot weather and warm up the pool water. Enjoy your Aiyden free day. Well done on getting Aiyden's play yard built and finishing with a great BBQ. Hope you hear soon from your cousin about your Polish ancestors.
What's a BAD case of CRS?

Peggy - glad you finding all Jerry's relatives in Poland and if you give me some names of towns or villages I might be able to help with the location. I still have 2 cousins living in Warsaw and I plan to call her tomorrow night.

Marilyn - I am glad that Doug and Karen have a new home and I hope they'll call Mum more often now. How about telling them that you miss hearing their voices, instead of just hints, TELL. Don't be shy. Anyway, it works both ways, you can call them, which is what I do with my son.
He lives just 3 miles from us and supposed to come over for dinner every day, so I call him to find out if he's coming. He finally moved to the apartment that we renovated 3 years ago last September just before our DD and her family came to stay with us from Scotland. After 3 weeks they left but DS is fine on his own, so he says.

It's after midnight, so time for emoticon

Beautiful day here too Annie! Supposed to be sleeping but.... Picked two gallons of raspberries yesterday and another two gallons this morning when I got home from work, the amount of raspberries out there is amazing. A neighbor is going to pick some tonight, I hate to see them go to waste, there were a lot this morning that were no good.

Bagel King Monday and then we went to CVS for my prescription and some vitamins, Home Depot for supplies, and then the bank to put some in to help pay for what we just bought.

I came home and paid some bills on the phone.

Boy we spent a lot of money today without really going too far.

Easy come, easy go.

Good Morning friends!!

Trudy, sounds like you had an awesome weekend!!! We have a gorgeous day here today. It was pretty rainy and cloudy all weekend, but after about six beautiful weekends in a row, I'm not complaining! Especially since we lucked out with both our big parties!

Andy is going to vacuum the pool this morning, supposed to be pretty hot today and tomorrow, maybe it'll get some use finally.

Marilyn, I'm glad your son and DIL found a "ready to go" home! I know exactly what you mean though about recalling things that were lost. That was me after our house fire......so many little things. Not easy, I know.

Nothing in particular planned for today - probably laundry and some putzing. Not an "Aiyden day" so a little more relaxing. It works out so well with DD wanting him the two nights before her days off - gives us all breaks here and there. Not as young as I used to be. LOL

Good morning,
We have another beautiful day here. The heat and humidity are increasing, but, I got my outside work finished over the weekend. Now, it's suppose to cool off again my mid week when I'll have to mow again.
Sat night I went to a performance at the university. It was called, That's What She Said. Several women talked about significant events in their lives. Some funny, some sad. It was fantastic. I went with 6 people from my Y group and 2 friends who don't belong to the Y. Sunday I went to another friends for girls swim party. There were 6 of us. We sat in lawn chairs and visited. Only one gal got into the water. It wasn't really hot or the others probably would have. I was there a little over 2 hours. It was very relaxing.
Wed. the Y group is going downtown for dinner and Bitchin' Bingo. I think I've told you about that. Adult bingo. It's so much fun. You can't be easily offended or you won't enjoy it!!
I have some real cleaning I need to do before my sil comes for a visit the first week of Aug.
I hope you're all feeling well and have a great week.

Read the posts and remembered what I was going to say...

Friday my DS and DIL and their family moved into their home. For those who are new to this thread, my DS Doug and his family totally lost their home in the tornado that hit WA. IL. Instead of building they found a house that is move in ready and moved in on Friday. I was over there helping them. Most of what they moved however was kitchen equipment and food. Karen had been out and bought bedding. They had delivered the mattresses, washer and dryer and TVs. All the important stuff.......I am so excited that they are back in WA and will be able to get settled in before school. I am so grateful that they are not having to build..... Doug is the park district director and has so many parks to rebuild that he didn't need to have a house to rebuild too.

Joyce, I have only the laptop as my computer. I am hoping it does not crash on me. Our other computer was at Doug's house when the tornado hit so there went our computer as well. He was going to get everything backed up to an external hard drive. Was hoping to get his pictures on the external drive. That of course is gone too. Everyday I think of something else that is gone. I do have a thumb drive and did back up my Quicken program, but need to do the rest.

Somebody mentioned Alaska........that was Denny and my last big trip we took. LOVED.....LOVED ......LOVED......it. Was one of the best trips we had. Have not welcomed Mary. Glad to have you here as well. Good luck with your plan on Sparkpeople.

Logging off, Hopefully be back tomorrow.

Hello everyone!!

Sounds like things are going well and it's SO awesome to see old friends checking in again! (Old as in long time, not elderly - just to be clear on that!!!! LOL)

Roz, sorry you've not been feeling the best, hope that turns around really fast!!

Our power was out awhile today so that set me back a bit, then DD, SIL and GS came over. Got Aiyden's play yard built and then Jim made BBQ ribs and were they ever YUMMY. Normally I don't care for ribs, but these were great!! Brenda and I took a three mile walk - that was fun, we haven't walked together in such a long time. After they all left, my other daughter came by to visit awhile and do a load of laundry. She flies to Florida tomorrow to visit her birth mother for about ten days. She took a fall a few weeks ago and her DH is in a rehab place, so Amy's sister went down to help her for a bit and now Amy is going down. Hopefully she'll be able to get by on her own by the time Amy leaves.

So it was a busy day, but fun. Brenda and Jim took Aiyden to a little festival near us and put him on the merry go round. Andrea and Gage went to a movie, and I'm here trying to catch up. LOL

Oh Marilyn, I have a BAD case of CRS most of the time, trust me!!

Hi Barbara, good to see you here!!

Peggy, I'm still waiting to hear from my cousin about where my grandparents were from. Sounds like you hit a good trail there on the family tree!

It is a blessing! That's why I stay right here even though I hate the hot and long summers! Every year for the first 40 years or so, I swore I was going to move to a cooler climate, like OR or WA, or even Alaska, but I never did because all my family is here:)

Hello to all my dear friends, I keep getting lost in FB and with other things.

Will spend time reading posts and catch up on what everyone is doing. I am home this week and then off to Big Cedar for the week with cousins. Should be a good time.

Glad to see Ania is back and posting and Roz it is good to see you.

Suz, I wish my DSs and their families would find it in their hearts to check on me once in a while. I do have my lonely days. That is so great that your family is so close and you are able to meet so often. That is truly a blessing.

Was going to make another comment but you know how that CRS disease is.......LOL

Ania, I am really lucky to have all my family so close by! We often go to breakfast together on Saturday and just recently some of our kids have been going too. All 3 of mine have showed up quite often lately and it's great, because two of them I don't see very often, although I do talk to my daughter on the phone in the morning and after work on weekdays. My youngest son is the only one I rarely talk to or see. He only lives a mile away too, but for some reason, he rarely comes over. My oldest son and I both love Survivor, and also watch Big Brother and The Amazing Race, so he comes over often and I record them at night then we watch them together in the morning before work. It's really nice:)

I've been finding lots of grandfathers and grandmothers on Jerry's Polish side thanks to Ania's correct spelling of Poznan. Now if I can only find a map and find the places.

Hi Roz - lovely to see you here again. I've also been MIA for a while by have come back because I am missing all my dear friends. I hope your flu, the rainy weather and you will sorts itself out and you'll feel better real soon so you can get back to your emoticon and emoticon

You're lucky Sue having your sisters close by to take to Sunday breakfast. Keep up with your practice on your electric piano! emoticon

Even though I have not posted for a while I still think of and remember you my friends but I've been somewhat out of sorts with a nasty bout of flu amongst other things.

Have not been doing much exercising -hate doing it alone and indoors, and we've been having lots of rain most days but hopefully should be back to my walking and swimming soon.

Hope everyone has a blessed and productive week.
Roz.

So much going on with this team, I love reading all the posts but sure can't remember who said what when I get ready to respond:)
I wen't to breakfast with my 2 sisters and all 3 of my kids yesterday, it was really nice! other than that, just been sleeping and practicing on my electric piano:) I'm getting a little better, but it's slow trying to learn, but I do love it!
I sure want to try that juicing! I am so swollen up everyday,and it makes me feel awful all over adn tired all the time. I think juicing would help:)
Have a good Sunday everyone, tomorrow is back to work!

Joyce someone just gave me a crochet book with sweater, hat and bootie sets in it. Maybe I'll try one but not yet too much going on.

Thanks again Ania I keep finding marriage records for Jerry's family going back into the 1800's in Poland. They have so much on line these days

Good Morning All!

The blueberries are already ripe here - we have a big blueberry patch around the block from us and there have been people there picking a week or so. It's a big "pick your own" patch. I remember how busy a farm can keep you.....lived on a big dairy farm for thirty years.

Merri, we still have grey skies here. Been a gloomy weekend.

SIL, GS and Andrea's new fella are coming over to fence in a play area for Aiyden. There's a spot between our back deck and sunporch that is perfect to make him a play yard. Want to get a covered sandbox and he already has a wading pool, a small slide and other outdoor toys. SIL is going to BBQ some ribs. I have extra pasta salad and fruit salad from yesterday - I was thinking ahead. LOL

I finished the baby afghan last night! Yaaay! All I have to do is make a flower for the cap and the set is done. I think I'll mail it so if she has the baby before we get down there next month she can bring her home from the hospital with it if she wants to.

Another beautiful sunny day out there, I kind of run my self ragged yesterday trying to fit all these things into one day off, picked cherries again, I want to try making some maraschino cherries, should be interesting. A neighbor came over and also picked some to make a cherry cobbler, nice to have company up in the tree lol! I spent another hour out in the hay field spraying milkweed in an attempt to take back my hay fields, the top field is about done, I have lost over 1/3 of my hay fields to milkweed invasion. Then I bushhogged two pastures and my neighbor volunteered to mow my lawn which was really nice! I finished weedwacking around the blueberries and got the net over them, they are starting to get ripe, it all happens at once! I never did get to pick the raspberries, I will have to go down this morning and pick some, I hate to see them go to waste, but I am going to be the next three nights working so not much time.

It is going to be another nice sunny day. We could actually see the smoke around the sun here yesterday from the fires going on....So hazy...

We went to get me a new pair of tennis shoes yesterday. Boy, what a difference in price from one store to another. Than even on line too. I wanted this one pair of New Balance that were on line but out of stock. Sears only had a wide size there and wouldn't honor the price on my add as they said mine were medium and theirs were wide...My add was on sale for 38.24 and theirs were 44.99...

We than went to Penneys and got the right ones on sale and an extra 20% off too... So cheaper than the ones on line with the tax included...I am one happy camper now...I got mine for 38.99 tax included,

Our foot dr said I have Plantar Fasciitis and a new good support shoe should help some. Than of course some exercises too

Good morning everyone.

Thanks for the correct spelling of Poznan Ania. I went to the Poznan Project website and found the wedding date of Jerry's grandparents and their parents names

We're off to Church BBL

Peggy, I'll have to ask my cousin again - I've forgotten the name of the town.

Ania, the shower gift was a huge success. The blanket is so unique. You send a photo to the company and they make it so the image is actually woven into the threads, not printed on it. There's a pic of it on FB. We saw one at our friend's daughter's shower last year and thought it was such a wonderful idea, we got the name of the company to have them made. Cost right around $100 and it's done in three days' time.

Peggy - the name of the town is 'POZNAN' and it's a big provincial town. I haven't been there as yet, I am still young and might visit it when next in Poland. Don't know anyone there, so not much reason to go. At home I have an old Polish Atlas so when I get back in 5 weeks might look it up if you want me to. I suppose you can Google it yourself before then.

Ania I forgot that you were both from Poland.

I really don't know anything about Jerry's Polish roots and neither does he. He just knew his grandmother was a city girl and his grandfather came from the country

I found his grandfathers naturalization records and it said he was from Buro, Posnan Poland

Evening all.

Just put the girls to bed and hope to watch some TV with DH. This afternoon we took them to Pleasureland, an indoor fun park. All day it's been emoticon so we played Uno, Pictionary, though they are way too young and did some puzzles. The parents went away to Edinburgh, about an hour south of here, for a belated 20th Anniversary get-away. They don't have anyone who can look after the girls for 20 hours here, so I offered to do it as an anniversary present and also gave them the stay in the hotel, dinner and breakfast.
I know, it's an awfully long way, 12,000 miles to come an babysit granddaughters emoticon
In the morning we are taking them to a movie. Parents will be getting back for lunch.

Peggy - you probably know we also come from Poland. I come from the western part of Poland and so does DH.
BTW. Not sure if you know but the root of the word Siekierski - 'siekiera' means 'axe'.

Mary Anne - so glad you have your parents close by. Enjoy their company while you can. emoticon

Trudy - have fun with your friends. It's great that you don't sit at home on your own.

Mary - never heard of that supplement and doubt whether it really works and as Annie said 'doing exercise/watching what I was eating was the best'

Joyce - I am sorry for poor Aiyden and Andrea for what they had to go through and hopefully they won't have to repeat it too soon. It's lovely that your GD is considering naming her daughter after you. You must mean so much to them both. emoticon
I think the shower gift from you all will the the best that the couple will receive! emoticon

It's time to finish and join DH now. emoticon for now.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Wow Joyce you have more parties to attend then anyone that I know. Have a good time.

I am about to do some Strength exercises and then start working on my family tree.

Now I am working on Jerry's "Siekierski" branch. That is his Mother's side and his grandfather came from Poland.

It's harder when you don't even know where they came from. The area they were from in Poland was taken over by the Russians and the Germans so the info on the census is really weird.

We have rain here Merri....supposed to rain off and on all day and evening I guess. GGD's party was supposed to outdoors, so hopefully the party time will be during the "off period. DH, SIL and GS are going to that while DD, GD and I go to the bridal shower.

Need to get to the kitchen and get the pasta salad and fruit salad done. You all have a great day!

Morning everyone, We have another beautiful day promised to us again. It looks like we are going to start climbing into the high 80's for a few days. I guess we have to let the ones that enjoy the warmer weather to have a chance too....

Not much going on here today or the weekend. Sort of nice having a "free" weekend.

Busy thread today!

Peggy, so glad your mammogram was good. Always breath a sigh of relief when it's over especially followed by a good oncologist visit.

Barb, a widow can start collecting at age 60. I was 59 in September when my husband had passed. Social Security told me I could start collecting in March when I turned 60. It's worth looking into. My dad grew up on a farm in Fort Kent. He still talks a lot about it. His favorites were the horses and baby pigs.

Ania, nice to see you here again. Dad still talks about the time he got to talk to you on skype.....never forgot you!

Mary, welcome to the group. We're a chatty and friendly bunch.

Spent the day working in the yard today. Weather was fantastic and after not being out there for 6 days the weeds had multiplied. I have got to get my mulch down. I swear the weeds pop up over night and I'm getting tired of pulling them. Will be spending the day with mom and dad tomorrow so don't know when or if I'll get on line.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Wow Trudy, has it really been 3 years? Seems like yesterday. Loved the pic of Ania and Marek on FB today. I remember so well how she had us in stitches - one thing Ania is NOT is shy! LOL What a fun time that was!!

Peggy, there are so many ways to spell the name, I don't bat an eye at a different spelling. I think I'll try to finish the afghan for the new GGD who will be arriving soon. Planned on it last night and never picked it up.

I don't mind whatever way you spell Adin and I don't think Joyce does either. Adin is the German spelling he is named after his great grandfather but I told Jodi it means A din which is a loud noise and he lives up to it.


I've never tried the supplement either.

I'm off to work on my afghan.

Hi everyone,
Welcome Mary, nice to see you here. Great group.
I've had a nice week. Went to a couple of social events, went tot he Y a couple of times and have taken time to do a few things around here that I've been needing to do. Tomorrow night I'm going with 8 gals to the preforming theater at the U of I to see "That's What She Said". It's suppose to be really good. A lot of women talking about life. Some serious, some funny, some sad. Adult show. So, you know I'll enjoy it!! LOL!
It sounds like everyone is in a good place.
Ania, it's so hard to believe all that's gone on in the past almost 3 years. I remember out time together fondly.
Everyone have a great night and better weekend!!

our 2 kids are the :k's: Kevin and Kimberly

Mary:
No I have not tried the supplement.. I have tried one, can not remember the name,, but it didn't work like just doing exercise/watching what I was eating was the best {supplement};

I walked slowly and added a "bug" killer to our yard, our jr acre of lawn, then walked and used the hose and watered it in.. sure is funny how the {bugs} here are different than central Or..

I think I'm really going to have to give juicing a try just to know what you all are talking about. LOL

Poor Aiyden (and Andrea) - she said he just screamed when she left him with Irene. Said it was worse than when he got his six shots last week. :-( He just doesn't know who she is!!! It's only the second time she's seen him since his birthday in March. Jimmy pulled up as she was leaving, so hopefully he calmed down when he saw him. Poor little guy is gonna have a rough day I'm afraid.

Brenda took the engagement photo of GD and her fiance and had it put on a blanket for them for the shower. I bought a bottle of wine, some wine glasses, a box of chocolates, a candle and some country cd's to go along with the blanket. That'll be her shower gift from all of us.

Got a message from my GD's husband. She's expecting a little girl in a couple of weeks, she's one of the GD's in TN. He said they're thinking of naming her Kailynn Joyce! OMG that brought tears to my eyes. Even if they don't DO it, just thinking about it made my day!

DESSERT DRINK!

*almond milk 1 cup
* two bananas
A touch of Nutmeg (added to the top of the smoothie)

Steph do you add any liquid to these juices?

How about giving us the proportions for your favorite one. My neighbor has one of those Magic Bullets that I'll borrow to see if I like juice

Morning..

Last nights juice was amazing!! Pears and celery and spinach / kale..YUM!

Tonight: Collard greens (Anyone ever have collard greens)...odd. Just odd. Lemons, apples, limes, cucumbers, parsley. Crazy insane mixture. We'll see how it goes!! Never had collard greens before.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

Hi gals....

Annie, so glad the surgery went well for DH. I need to have cataract surgery but I keep putting it off.

Merri, my DH doesn't eat as he should, no matter what I say. I try to just not have sweets in the house, but he does like his chips!

Andrea is taking Aiyden to her ex's mother today. Jim will stop in to visit him while he's there. Not at all comfortable with him spending the day there with them. Irene hasn't seen him since his birthday in March! She's like a complete stranger to the poor kid! Jim has NO patience with him. He hasn't seen him in a couple of weeks. His Mom will take him to Brenda when she gets home from the salon or back here if she can't handle him that long. Andrea and Gage are going to the Jason Aldean/Miranda Lambert concert tonight, then Andrea will spend the night at Brenda's when they get home. It's easier for him to stay there when she's late because she has a pack and play set up in her room for him.

I have to get to WM this morning. HATE shopping on Friday but I have to make a big fruit salad for GD's bridal shower tomorrow and wanted the fruit to be good and fresh.

Joyce, We seem to have more K's in the family......We have my DH Ken, DD, Kim, SIL, Kraig, two grandkids, Kyle & Kelly, Keith, Kathy & Kassy...

I still have some problems with Ken eating better. He still gets into the sweets. I found myself yesterday looking at the fruit and veggies as Ken was over looking at the sweets. He thinks if he has one little cup cake like they are making them a lot now...it is ok.....WELL, he doesn't only eat one tho at a time....He is a diabetic too...Takes insulin at night...

I started really watching closer since July 7th and I am feeling a lot better now. Not tired around 3 PM like I was for sometime. I have to really watch my carbs...I mean more like chips and crackers. Not candy bars...I don't like chocolate...

It is hard for me to stay caught up with all the happenings here on my work days, miss a few days and lots happens!

Joyce and Sue, I am sure most people that grew up on a farm learned to do a big variety of things, farming is such a multitasking kind of job. I love the farm and would love to retire and just do that, but it is going to have to wait a couplIe of years, I am just 60 now.

Grace, seems funny that the cherries would be ready in CA the same time as up here! Last night we got looking on line and thought I might try some maraschino cherries when I pick them.

seems like peoples weather is quite variable, it has been very hot and humid here, good for the grass growing! but I admit I like cooler weather better.

I went to a SS seminar today here at work, trying to figure out what to do and when on the whole retirement thing. It gets quite complicated, he was talking a lot about couples deferring payment, and collecting from a spouse's SS. Just barely touched on the whole widow thing, I didn't realize that I could collect 100% of his SS, I thought it was still 50%, that might make a difference on when I could retire.

Tonight is my last night at work but only two days off and one a sleep day. Guess the next day will be spend picking cherries and raspberries!

Ania, yes Andrea does live with us, so we have Aiyden a lot. Even when she's home he likes to be in here with us, Adores Andy. Both Andrea and Austin did when they were little, too. He calls him "Pa" - doesn't quite get the grandpa out yet. No name for me that he says - but I am GG to him. Indeed I have a "Handy Andy" and I surely appreciate that!! LOL Glad the weather has improved a bit for you!

emoticon Mary to the friendliest team on SP!

Congrats Peggy on the wonderful news about the mammogram and your weight loss! You are doing well with your family tree! emoticon

Joyce - hope you got your new flash drive before your laptop dies. You are doing well, looking after Aiyden every day. Does Andrea live with you? Andy sure is handy around the house. emoticon

Hi Trudy - hope you have a great evening with your friends. It's almost 3 years since we all met in Chicago.

Welcome back Mary Anne - glad you had so much fun with your kids and all your friends. Enjoy lunch with your dad tomorrow. Keep cool.

Today has really been a nice summer day here, warm & sunny ALL day. In the morning we went to the library, the girls are supposed to read 6 books over the summer holidays and then they get a certificate and a medal so we went to change some books. In the afternoon we went to Broughty Ferry beach and met some of their friends. There were lots of people on the beach and some even in the sea, though the water was very cold.

The house is quiet, everyone's in bed so it's time to switch off emoticon
Good night everyone.

I agree the trackers on food esp. has been a big help ! I love the chart at the bottom of the food tracker with the percentages of fat/carbs/protein.

Your exercise program is similar to mine. I walk (Leslie Sansone) 2miles about 5-6 days a week with some weights/step/elliptical to keep it interesting.

Mary, I think using the tracker had the biggest impact as well as getting into a regular exercise routine. I try to walk 2 miles a day at least 5 days a week.

You don't have to change your user name - just put Mary in your signature. Go to your spark page, click edit the page in the top right section, scroll down to where there's a block that says "signature" and just put your name and where you're from. :-)

Wow I was missing for one day and had a lot to read to catch up.

I had my mammogram yesterday and it was good. Now I see the oncologist on the 29th and hope that is good also.

I found some new leads yesterday on my family tree so that's where I was.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Went to WW's today and lost a pound.

I didn't feel so good last night. Only worked out part of the time. Hum..I don't like not feeling well. Wish I knew what it was. I'm not sick. Just my body was not feeling right so I didn't push it.

As of yesterday - Micki said her blood tests were better! And that there was NO permanent damage to her Kidneys, I guess they pumped fluid through her?? And she is doing better??
Well that's the best I know!

Sue - the letter thing happens a lot in my family for some reason

Daughter Amy has Courtney Colin and Chance
Brenda has Andrea and Austin, then Andrea had Aiyden
My GS Jay has Jason, Justin, Jocelyn and Jasmine
Two of my GDs are "gems" - Diamond and Jade

Merri, I get my printer ink at WM. I have to replace my color cartridge, need to pick one up tomorrow. Also need a flash drive - my old laptop is on its last leg and I want to pull all the pics off it before it dies. I have them all on WM cd's but I just feel better having a second option. Rarely look at them, but it's just knowing they're there.

Feel like I'm spinning my wheels today. Fooled with that laptop awhile, took a few tries to get it up and running. I use it to download pics and to print things, that's about it.

Do have a load of laundry done, Aiyden fed, and now he's about ready for a nap. I'll be back later to see how y'all are doing.

Steph, thanks for the information! I feel bad for your friend, if it made you come home sad, I can imagine how it made her feel! That's horrible.

Hogan, I have always wanted to go to Alaska! I would love it there because I hate the summer and the heat, but all my family are right here, so here I stay:)

Joyce, you really are a party animal and a cleaning machine! lol I don't know how you keep up with Aiden and all you do too! I think it's interesting how everyone's name in your family seems to start with the letter "A", I'm sure that's not by accident...there must be a story in there somewhere?

Welcome to the new and returning members! I can't remember everyone's screen names, but I saw a few that I haven't seem since I started on this team:)

Hi everyone,
What a beautiful week we've had. We had hard, heavy rain on Sat. and Monday noon. But, the humidity has gone away for a few days. The temps have cooled off for a few days. Delightful.
I have a dr. appt. this morning, then I plan to mow and spread some mulch. I only have one place left and two bags of mulch so, it's going to work out great.
I went to a Habitat for Humanity fund raiser on Monday night. They had a reception type deal for an hour and then we went to a theater across the street to see The Wizard of Oz on the big screen. I hadn't seen the movie for a few years. It was nice.
Tonight I'm going to a small town about 20 min. west and meet up with some friends.
I hope you're all doing well.
Steph, I'll be interested to hear how your numbers are after a month or so of juicing. I just can't help but feel like they'll be good.
I need to get my carpet cleaned also. I need to just call and make the arrangements.
Well, I'm off. Everyone have a great day.

Joyce, We just cleaned the carpet under our kitchen table too. It must be in the air. We took it outside on our driveway....Just hosed down the driveway and let it dry and than put the carpet out there. It needed it too. We had all of that company a month or so ago when our DGD got married here in town and they all came over here after the wedding and before the reception....

Today we have a mission going to find ink for the printer I use for my DS...I think Walmart might just be our best bet....Best Buy might be more expensive too...About ten miles farther too...

Glad you had a good time Mary Anne!! You sure deserved a weekend of fun!

Chris, good to see you back again! Indeed we are all very dependent on technology these days, aren't we? LOL

Hogafour - I go in spurts with cleaning - this just happened to be a good day! I babysit my great grandson a lot of the time and on those days I can't get much done. He's 16 months old and on the go constantly. Keeps me hopping!

Back from my long weekend with the kids in Rochester. Had a great time and saw lots of friends and family. This is an every other year party that we all look forward to.

Steph, I have been trying to read through the thread and saw the news on Micki. Sending extra prayers her way. So sorry to hear.

You all have been chatting away and I still haven't gotten through all the days I've missed!!! Tonight will be our first cool night in a long time...about 65. The next few days are supposed to be in the 80's a LOW humidity. I'm glad these terrible storms have finally passed - at least for now.

Will be taking dad to another doctor's appointment tomorrow and then out to eat. Not sure if I'll be on spark at all so wishing everyone a great day!!!

Wow! My sick computer sure got me out of the loop. June 24 was the last time I enjoyed this forum.

Welcome to the Newbies. I know you'll find a great support group here. I find it the most positive group.

Silly me seemed to think that since the computer didn't work then I could not count calories. emoticon Remember the good old days of paper and pencil with books, magazines and notes from past weight loss adventures. Well, I just never thought of that and mentally kept track, but did not do to good. emoticon

So now I'm back on track. It was great to read the Dolly Parton sayings - did she ever have a weight problem?

The various states are exciting to me since I want to visit all 50 in my life time. I've been to about 32 so far. It's on my bucket list!!!!!!!!!!!!

Steph, how's the juicing going?
Chris

Building my bucket list and enjoying the ones I've accomplished!!! I quit smoking and have visited 34 out of 50 states. But I want to see the grand canyon.

Hi Hoganfour and welcome!!!

I'm Joyce from NE Ohio. My son in law's parents just got back from a trip to Alaska. They really enjoyed it.

I spent today cleaning the nursery and sorting through all of Aiyden's clothes. Been after Andrea for weeks to do it but she never gets around to it. She better hope I don't hit her room next because I'll be going in there with garbage bags!! LOL

Andy shampooed the carpet in the living room for me - what a guy! It was past due for a good cleaning but it really looks good!
