Lin: Good that youíre keeping that trainer advised of what you can do. Some donít listen!

Glad the weight is responding to exercise! Yes, it helps to be too tired to eat, doesnít it! LOL And for sure better food choices are good.

Nola: Youíre right . . . give me a face-to-face opportunity anytime. **SIGH**

((((HUGS)))) Itís sad as they get older and have their own responsibilities beginning

Lin emoticon on the weight going down. That is what it is all about good food choices. I really am going to get my act together. I hate the fact that I worked so hard to reach my goal and promised myself I would never go to that fat person again. Luckily it is only a few Kgs to take off, so better get my A into G and stop whining and do it.

Barb it is sooooo tiring battling over the phone. Give me face to face any time. Hope today will be better. emoticon

Eliza you would be pooped after a day teaching then having the heat on top of that. It must stop soon. Hope you get your car fixed soon so you have wheels again. emoticon

Dorothy, that is lovely Michael going to the same school you attended. Schools are really great now days . emoticon

Feeling a bit sad, it is School term holidays starting Friday for 2 weeks and this is the first time the GDs are not coming for a stay. 2 have part time work in KFC and Cheyenne has work at her Dads work sorting the workshop out. I am pleased for them, it was going to happen, and we were lucky to have them want to come for as long as they did.

Have a great Thursday emoticon

emoticon emoticon emoticon Nola for you and Don! what a relief!
I've been having to rein in the trainer a bit, since we're not working together real time, I have to tell him when we need to make adjustments. But it is nice having some one tell me what to do (what????) on the exercise. First time in ages I've worked out 3 days in a row, and still have 3 more to go. I know how frustrating it is for you not being able to walk. emoticon I love to walk too, but I hate carrying the O2 around all the time and my back gives out before I get anywhere. Hoping with the training it will all get better.

Barb, so sorry you are still having to fight the red tape emoticon

Dorothy sounds like you are still very busy! and that all is okay, glad to hear.

Eliza glad Mom is okay and school is working well, now if you could just get that car to behave! emoticon

my weight is going down with the exercise, no surprise there. I'm too tired to eat and I don't want to overeat and have to work harder than I am now! so I'm making better food choices. I'm trying to get the trainer on Sparkpages so he can see what I'm eating without having to enter the foods twice. But since he is doing it all on his phone and has 2 young'uns it will probably take a while. as long as the movement is emoticon I'm not going to worry about it.

huggs to all

Wednesday - Well, another day yesterday of idiocy! Still donít have an answer to the bank problem but spent 2..5 hrs. on the phone. Think weíre closer to a resolution but itís driving me batty.

Then I got a letter from one of the insurance companies that Mom is not the beneficiary on the account. ARE YOU SERIOUS!!! The policy was bought in 1955 Ė She is listed as primary beneficiary and should something happen then the $$ was to be split with me and my brother (that would be the brother that passed away Ė my younger brother wasnít born yet, so . . ) Anyhow, had to fax THEM papers. Lord, never ends!

But otherwise not a bad day, compared to Monday!

HUGS

Nola: Thatís fantastic that Don doesnít need any more shots! Doing the happy dance right w/you!

Yesterday was a challenge, but have my to do list and will work my way thru it again today.

Yes, those pounds/kilos just sneak back on!

Dorothy: OH MY GOD, insurance companies and banks specialize in making things so utterly, totally frustrating that you want to run away and just forget about it. Thatís what they want, anyhow. BUT they have the wrong person for that for sure. SO glad your niece was finally able to get the money. It is just miserable all the hoops you have to go thru for money that is YOURS!!!!! Well, I my case, itís Momís to be used for her care! Lord, I made that promise to Dad that I would take care of her and woe be tide to anyone who stands in the way of that promise, because I wonít meet my Dad @ the pearly gates if I havenít done my due diligence!

And as for the flu shot, I have a call into the Dr. to write a dang order for the shot, and if need be *IíLL* administer it. Jeez! Theyíre not only compromising Momís health, but the other residents, as well, because if she gets the flu, it will spread like wild fire. Thatís not a good combination Ė flu and the elderly. You just have to keep on top of these people every stinkiní step of the way. Thatís all right . .. I will do that! AND they know it.

Glad that the high school is looking nice! I know, when I went to my DSís High School open house (the same High School I had attended) it was NOTHING like when Iíd been there (well not like I expected it would be unchanged, just sayiní Ė lots of changes and expansion).

Eliza: Hope the car issue is worked out.

I imagine that you were tired after being in the school all day! Hope you got a chance to cool down.

Yes, it is sad the lives lost to the earthquake in Mexico and the lives lost and devastation in Puerto Rico with Hurricane Maria. What an awful hurricane season this has been!

Barb - I would have been pulling my hair out and throwing it in there faces or spit would have been flying out of my mouth - lol. When my poor niece finally went to close out my sisters checking and saving account they would not give her the money until they checked with the loan dept. Years ago my sister had consigned on a loan with her hubby for him to get a truck and he let it go back. But it was years ago. I told her after 7 years I was pretty sure they could not do anything - and luckily she finally was able to get the money. Makes me so mad the way these banks treat people. I sure would have been having a stiff drink after going through all of that. And the flu shot - really?? Lord give me strength if my mom ever ends up in a nursing home.

Nola - I am so happy for Don - such good news.

Darn body - why does it have to start giving out on us??

That is terrible about the flu - I am scheduled to get the flu shot - just not sure when.

Eliza - so sorry about the car.

Went to the high school open house - they hae added a whole hall since I went to the school there and I could not find it - lol. But it is sure looking nice. I will be glad as will the students and the faculty when the remodel is all done,.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Doing the happy dance here. Don didn't need the injection in his MD eye, and doesn't have to go back for 4 months. He is very happy not to have that setback in his life, so am I. emoticon


Eliza not still leaking, at least you know that you won't have to pay., but what an inconvenience.
Hope you had a fun day with your little ones. emoticon

Barb are things a bit better? I do hope so. They were talking about the bad strain of Flu that is here and it targets pregnant women which is scary. 7 elderly in one facility died, yet they had all had their flu shot. It is not good. Hope it all gets sorted. It must be tempting to just get one and give it to your Mom yourself. emoticon

Dorothy good it is only a couple of pounds. It is awful the way it creeps on. I am having terrible trouble trying to shift the bit I've gained. I just don't seem to get my Mojo back, I know since this ankle has really stuffed itself and I can't get out and walk it just makes me so sad. I just love walking even if it is just on the treadmill, but it is not happening at the moment. emoticon

Lin I guess you are bouncing along with your new exercise regime, or is he one spunky trainer? emoticon

Catch you all tomorrow emoticon

Hope today is better for you Barb. What incompetence, hard to believe that banks could be so slack. Hope you can organize the flu shot for your Mom. It has been horrific here, particularly in the Eastern States, with so many people dieing . Particularly the elderly.

Sounds like you need a flask for you, when you visit your Mom, just in case of course. emoticon

Off to bed have a good day. emoticon

Tuesday - Yikes! What a day yesterday. Had to go to the bank yet again to check on the progress being made (OR NOT, as it turns out) on the 2 CDís and one IRA account that Dad left to Mom.

LORD HAVE MERCY ON MY SOUL!!! NOTHING had been done. The POA Power of attorney) hadnít been acted on, the beneficiary listing hadnít been changed Ė NOTHING. I . . . Was . . . LIVID. Normally I am pretty quiet even if Iím angry, usually, because I want the problem to be handled. THEN I can have my hissy fit when I LEAVE. NOT YESTERDAY. I was so annoyed I just told the banker, well, get the POA papers re-submitted to someoneís attention, indicated that they have to be expedited, never mind that my POA had previously all ready been APPROVED!!!

And then I said, the POD (payment on death Ė the beneficiary) has to be changed to reflect Mom as the beneficiary w/me being the POA. DANG! IT REALLY IS NOT THAT HARD!

Then I had to fight with the facility nurse for Mom to get her flu shot. ďWe have to check the protocol since sheís on XYZ mediation.Ē YES, she is ON XYZ medication but it is an off label use. I talked w/the pharmacist already and knew there were no contraindications for mom to get the flu shot (not till the end of October, which is fine). She said, we have to follow the protocol. Well, dang, woman. Give me the flippiní inoculation and Iíll give it to Mom myself. NOT THAT HARD!

Ok, then I had to get a Medicare issue straightened out. THAT was ďinterestingĒ, though the problem was resolved.

Sorry, but by the time all this was done, Mom and her poor tablemate almost didnít get their libation because *I* was ready to consume it! GAH! But I was a good daughter and brought them and didnít ďstealĒ theirs.

What the heck!!! I surely hope that today is better.

HUGS and hope you have a good Tuesday. Me too!

Nola: Uh oh. Sorry about the curtains. Thereíll be more I bet.

OH . . .. the cnocolate martinis definitely are a hit with Mom and her buddy.

Good luck w/all the appointments for Don.

Dorothy: Oh, those ladies all deserve spoiling! And for sure, the wines are really good. A nice spicy taste.

Uh oh on the visit to the nutritionist!

Eliza: Oh no about the darned car! Hope your day is good today!


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Eliza - great news - glad the radiator was covered.

Lin - wonderful that you have the trainer to get back on track.

Nola - I hope Don's eye appointment goes well today. Bugs - ugh! We do have some great stores over here.

Went and saw the nutritionist last night and I am up a couple of pounds - I need to buckle down.

Eliza so good you were able to get the radiator fixed and it was the radiators fault. Great when you don't have to pay out the dollars. emoticon

Lin that sounds so good to have this association with the Trainer. Knowing your health history will make it easier to put your exercises together. Sounds like a "new you" is on the way.
I didn't get any curtains from the Red cross shop. I saw some there last week that I liked and I should have grabbed. I was too slow, they were gone. emoticon I'll keep my eye out, it is easy to duck into the shop a it is in our Community.

Barb emoticon for Chocolate Margaritas. The way to two mature ladies hearts methinks. emoticon

Dorothy we are just coming into bug time. Ours are sandflies, minute you can hardly see them.I get eaten to bits and they leave Don alone. You don't know until 24 hrs later that you have been bitten. Had to Google "Sams" to find out what it was. You have some great stores over there. emoticon

Have a week of Don appointments every day. Tomorrow is the Eye Specialist to check up on his Macular Degeneration. I just hope he doesn't have to have any more injections in it. emoticon

Talked to my trainer, Will for about an hour Saturday and caught up on all that has happened. Today is my first day doing the exercises he has set up for me online, I'm ready! emoticon

Glad Don is doing better Nola, hope you found your curtains. Sounds like a productive day outside, the spring weather must be cooperating! emoticon

Eliza it sounds like maybe you need a new mechanic? emoticon Glad Mom is doing good.

Barb with the festival and dinner out it must have been a great weekend, good to hear Mom is doing well too. Maybe life can settle down for awhile!

Dorothy glad you had a good day of gardening, did you find out if there was a nest of snakes or just one very active one? Soon it will be too cold for them, I hope!

After my workout I want to go to Sam's club and walk around, pick up a few supplies, nothing major, thank goodness.

Monday Ė Laid back Sunday for sure. Enjoying the last fleeting days of summer. The trees are starting to sport some color.

Well, back to work, back to the weekly routine!

Oh, Momís tablemate Ďgave me permission Ď to bring her more chocolate martoonis! LOLOL So . . . guess Iíve started something.

Enjoy Monday.

Dorothy: Yes, a good day!í

I love our local winery. They have some gold medal winners. I donít drink a whole lotta anything alcohol, but I do love Cedarburg Spice, Cedarburg Cranberry and Cedarburg Gold. Delish.

You were a busy beaver! Sorry the bugs were working overtime! Not fun.

Barbara. Sounds like a good day all around. We had a new local winery open last Friday and of course I had to check it out.

I did some outside work at the cabin. Finished t he garden and mowed the front lawn. The bugs were horrific. They were in swarms and felt like my face was getting eaten.

Eliza Glad mom is doing well. Sorry about the car emoticon

Nola. A full day garden in the garden. My favorite except for bugs. The snake was not poisonous. The thing that made me nervous was I saw it 3 different times so I was nervous I had disturbed a nest.
I hope Don continues to feel well

Also made it to Sam's and cleaned the van. It sure needed it

Sorry I missed yesterday. I had a huge day in the garden and just came inside on dark. Felt good getting all that work done.
Just into my coffee and the start of a new week I hope it is a good one for you all.
Don is feeling better. So good, this is how it should be. Keeping my fingers crossed he stays this way.

Barb I loved hearing you having some relaxing times and beautiful weather. Your Jason date sounded beautiful. emoticon
Costco is making noises it is coming to our State. We are always the last State to get the new stores. They have been in the Eastern States for some time now.

Eliza oh no not the car again. I hope you can get it fixed without losing an arm and a leg. At least with a hole in your bathroom you know sooner or later something is going to happen. emoticon

Dorothy are your snakes poisonous ? They are so scary when you suddenly come across them. I will never get used to them even though I have lived with them all of my life. Hope you had a lovely Sunday at the cabin emoticon

Must get a move on. I want to slip over to the Red Cross Shop to see whether they have any curtains in good condition and a nice colour that I can recut for the caravan and save a few dollars.

Sleep well !

Sunday: Mom had a really good day yesterday. That was so wonderful to see.

Jas and I went out to supper and just relaxed. Sorely needed and glad we did it.

Now to get some laundry done, and a little outside work while the weather is still nice.

Blessings

Dorothy: Yes, I am not a friend of snakes! Occasionally will have a garden snake in the garden area, but otherwise, . . . I scream like a girl! LOL

We did have a wonderful date night! Ate at a little place weíve been to in town many times. And our wine and harvest fest was going on! Yes, we have a winery here. Was surprised to learn that when we moved here (10 yrs. ago!) Anyhow, nice evening.

Have to run to Costco today. Better on a Sunday than a Saturday. Way too crowded on Saturday, as people ďmunchĒ their way thru the aisles. GAH! Nothing worth munching usually!!

Yes, paperwork is like rabbits Ė keeps multiplying! Double GAH!

Eliza, Nola, Lin: Have a great Sunday and blessings.


Love is the root of all things good in life.

Barb - snakes - ugh - I an into a little black snake while gardening - hopefully I scared him as much as he scared me - lol.

Who hoo - another good day for mom - love it when there are more good days rather than bad days,

I hope that you and hubby had a wonderful date night. Always wonderful to get a break from paperwork. Every time I think I have it under control another pile arrives in the mail box.

Eliza - I hope you enjoyed your day.

Not sure what I will get into today - probably running to Sams and yard work at the camp.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Saturday Ė Nice day. Mom had a good day. Most important!

Jason worked from home, so did get some of my outside chores done. So, that means a little more free time tomorrow.

Gorgeous weather. Sunny and really pleasant.

Tonight . . .. date night!!! Havenít decided what weíre going to do yet, but . . . I know weíre resourceful and will figure something out.

Have a wonderful Saturday!

Nola: OH good heavens! Even if you donít like camping . . . . who would leave dirty dishes for TWO YEARS! Youíd think it would STINK (well, maybe it did!) Glad youíve got it all sparkling now and just to make new drapes.

YES YES YES We are going out tonight. Not sure where yet, but . . . IT DOESNíT MATTER! Just getting out of the kitchen is heaven. And away from papers. HEAVEN!

So happy to hear that Don is better today. Such a trial.

Snakes! NO NO NO . . . not for me, thatís for sure.

Dorothy: YES . . . definitely feels like drowning in paperwork. BUT the bright side is digging out from under.

Glad that the cabin is clean. Sure keeps you hopping!

LOVE guac. I hear with the hurricanes, the price of avocados is supposed to skyrocket. We shall see.

Eliza: Hope things are moving along w/the bathroom.

Lin: Hope itís a good Saturday!

HUGS ladies.

Barb - glad you were able to get all the paperwork done. It feels like we are embroiled in it. You forget how much 9- 11 changed our lives forever. Security at the airports and proof of who you are to open anything. So sad to loose the trust we once had - sure is a different world than what it use to be. That and electronics - they have changed our world forever as well - nothing is private or secure any more.

Glad to hear that mom had another good day.

Lin - that is so awesome to learn how you impacted someone life in a positive way - I bet that really made your day.

Eliza - yea for remodel of the bathroom. I feel bad for Florida as they are having high temps as well and so many without power still.

Nola - that is too funny - but I know what you mean - I do not know how people just shut a door and never go back to take care of something. Glad you were able to make it all sparkly.

Ew about the snake. It is funny - we had an all day rain on Thursday and the frogs were out in mass - had to make sure not to step on one. I had a cat bring a snake into the house one time - thank god my one daughter was not afraid and caught it.

Cabin is clean although I will probably go back tomorrow to mow and finish the garden. Fall is coming so fast. I will be helping my frind in her garden today.

Had fajitas last night with the neighbor and his whole made guacamole - yum.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Had a big day cleaning the inside of the Caravan. I don't think I told you it had been parked up for two years in a garage. The little old man (younger than us but looked twice as old) lost his wife to cancer a few years ago and he took his new partner camping and when she got home said she would never go again. So it looked like they had just taken their clothes out and shut the door. Including leaving behind dirty dishes and bedding, which of course by now was two years old. When we looked at it before we bought it we could see this great little van underneath all this grott. I have been slowly emptying and dumping "stuff" and yesterday and today have scrubbed it all down and we now have a sparkling little van. Just have to make new curtains. emoticon

Dorothy when I was cleaning today, I thought of you cleaning your rented house way back after your tenants left when you had all that YUK. It is amazing what a bucket of sugar soap can shift.
Great the girl called you and had faith in you, and was able to rent your cabin. emoticon

Eliza how exciting getting your second bathroom remodelled. Hope you got Pancho out for his walk before the heat. emoticon

Lin such good news about your trainer. That is emoticon Makes you feel good to think you have helped someone else. Lovely that he told you as well.

Barb WTG on the Social Security stuff getting sorted for your Mom. Another thing out of the way. Getting there emoticon Is there a Jason date this weekend?

Snakes are on the move with the warmer weather. There are warnings all over the place. We will have to keep our screen door shut now for the summer. We keep it open in the winter for Barney to run in and out, so now someone "me" has to get up and let him out/in. I guess it is good exercise.
Don has improved today, hope it continues. emoticon

Barb I love direct deposit! it makes everything so much easier.

Dorothy glad you have a loyal customer that doesn't believe all she reads online! Glad you are feeling better.

Eliza I need to get to work cleaning my house, always seems to be something.

Nola sorry to hear the electric brake is so expensive, but glad you will be safe with it and the trailer. Hope Don feels better tomorrow after a good night's rest

I haven't heard anything from the job, but something much better--when I opened the linked in account, I saw my very first trainer from Gold's Gym there and requested to connect. He said yes, and through several messages, he is going to work with me via the Internet to be my trainer again, no charge! emoticon In his words:
"Belief it or not YOU are the main reason why I stayed in this business.. I was a new trainer when I started with you and you changed my life.."
who'd a thunk it? emoticon what tha?
just shows you never know how you may influence another's life, I'm so thankful he wants to work with me now, it should make it a lot easier to drop 25 pounds. I will be talking to him this weekend on the phone to get things started.

Thursday Ė got everything finalized w/Social Security so now Mom has her check automatically deposited. That will be good.

Got some MORE papers mailed off today to finish off one insurance company. LORDY.

Mom had a good day today. Colored again and she enjoyed that.

Gorgeous weather Ė in the 70ís and sunny. Nice.

So glad itís Friday.

HUGS

Nola: Yes, it makes my day when Mom is in good spirits. And for sure I savor those moments.

Oh my. . . have to have the patience of Job when doing these financial things! Ever so complicated since 9-11 happened.

So sorry to hear that Don is still under the weather and hope a good rest helps him feel better tomorrow.

Glad at least that the electric brake controller installater matched the price you could have gotten taking it into town. Everything is so expensive.

Lin: Thinking about you and hope youíve heard something about the job!

Dorothy: Yes, the good days do make life easier!

YES! I am glad I am not the only one who notices that instead of speeding up the time, it has slowed things down to open accounts, etc. Well, I know part of it, too, is the aftermath of 9-11.

Glad youíre feeling better! Hurray.

Good luck today w/the Airbnb.

Eliza: Hope you have a good Friday!

Hugs ladies.

Barbara. So glad that mom had a good day. Makes life so much easier

It always amazes me how long it takes to do things now a days with computers than it did before. Prescriptions and opening bank accounts. Glad you were able to get it done

I too am feeling so much better

Eliza so nice that you are able to have that arrangement with that teacher. Cleaning is wAys necessary

Nolan. This girl had rented through airbnb and called me when they cancelled. That is how I found out that they did it

So today I will go meet her and get the cabin ready.

I do hope Don is feeling better

Barb that must make your heart sing to have your Mom in good spirits. I know it can change in the blink of an eyelid, but you must savor those moments.
Glad you are feeling better. That is amazing that it took so long to open an account. You must have been ready to spit chips by the time they got their act together. At least another thing out of the way. emoticon

Dorothy sorry to hear your sister's ex is causing trouble. There is always one in a family that stirs things up. Your poor niece having to cope with this.
Great you have a guest coming for the cabin. Were you able to sort out all that bull that AirBnB were stirring up? emoticon

Lin when do you think you will hear about the job.? Hope you get it. emoticon

Eliza that is great having a teacher friend that will call you in when she needs you. So much better than going every day. emoticon

I took the car to have an electric brake controller fitted so I can pull the caravan safely. I think they saw me coming......mega dollars....although they did match the lower price I could get if I took the car into town.

Don is still the same, tomorrow should be the day he starts to pick up. Thanks for all the caring things you say. emoticon

Thursday Ė Well, got some things settled @ 2 banks and had to get things sorted w/Social Security. I had to get an acct. opened with me as payee for Mom and that took 2 hrs. YIKES! But itís done. Then visited Mom. She was in good spirits! She wanted to color, so thatís what we did! Another lady joined us. Nice lady, but she didnít stay too long.

So today, I have to call Social Security and tell them about the account so that I can get Momís SS checks deposited.

I felt better yesterday, fortunately, so could get things done. Today I feel back to me. HOPE thatís good!

Happy Thursday.

Nola: I am telling you, getting financial things settled is one step forward, two steps backward. **SIGH**

Sorry to hear Don is under the weather. Hope heís better today. Prayers.

Dorothy: That is horrible for about the impact your sisterís ex is having financially. Yes, I cannot imagine how some people live w/themselves.

Hope youíre feeling better.

Eliza: Hope itís a good day for you!

Lin: What a good idea! I missed that yesterday, but heck, they have everything to gain, you would be financially helped Ė sounds like a win-win! Fingers crossed.

Barb - my niece is going through some difficulty with her mothers accounts. We finally got the death certificate. My sister was still married but they have not been together for years. When she went to close out her moms bank accounts they had to look into an old loan of her husbands - I think he let a truck go back that he had bought and my sister had cosigned. It makes me angry. He is living in the house that they bought together - and she put a small fortune into it and now this -I do not know how some people live with themselves.

I do hope that you are able to get your moms stuff straightened out and find the fridge that you want.

Eliza - thank you - I am on an antibiotic and am starting to feel better - finally.

Lin - my hubby uses a netti pot regularly but I have never used one. Good luck with the job.

Nola - I do hope Don is feeling better - sad that something that is suppose to help him always makes him so sick.

I do believe they had suicide awareness week here last week - it is something we all have to be aware of as I am sure it has affected us all at one time or another.

I need to go clean the cabin either tonight or tomorrow - I have a guest coming for the weekend.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Thats a good idea doing the research on line for the fridge. I do that with everything we need to buy and then you can just go to the one spot to buy. Works for me!

Barb I hope you have found a fridge that suits. Hope all the financial stuff gets finalised for your Mom soon. It is definitely "one day at a time" stuff. emoticon

Lin great idea to go after your old job to help process all the claims etc. I do hope you will be successful. Sending job getting vibes your way emoticon

Dorothy sad about the sinus infection. I hope the antibiotics do their job. Be kind to your self. emoticon

Eliza do you teach every day, or just when they need you. emoticon

Don is not so good tonight, he has a bit of a temp so watching him closely. Hopefully it is just passing through.

R.U.O.K. day in Australia today. It is all to help with suicide prevention. Very necessary!

Barb good luck with fridge hunting! I do most of my looking online, then hit the stores.

Dorothy so sorry for the sinus infection, ouch! Have you got a netti pot? they work wonders!

Nola hope Don is feeling better soon after the blood draw. I bet the soup will help a lot, enjoy!

Eliza, glad it is going well with the little ones, they are a wonder.

I don't know whether to say any thing or not, I applied for a job with my old company today or a temporary full time position handling claims from the hurricanes. It is for 5 months, and the money would sure solve a lot of stress and provide some funds to actually do some traveling. Here's hoping if it is the best thing for me, that it will work out.
worked Bingo today selling pickles, going to go play Bingo tonight to get my mine off everything. have a good night everyone! have a good day Nola!

Wednesday Ė Well, didnít get as much done as I wanted to. Had a little tummy bug but was over it by the late morning. Did get my hair cut. That felt good!

Off to the post office to mails YET MORE PAPERS. Then have 2 banks to go to so I can get Momís finances finished. Itís getting there.

Still refrigerator looking. UGH.

Nola: Hope Don is feeling better after a bit of a rest. And good luck with making the new curtains for the caravan!!!

Frankly, Iíd rather pull my fingernails out than search for a new fridge, but . . . the search goes on.

Dorothy: I know, my parentsí fridge lasted about 25 yrs. Nothing fancy, but I donít need all the bells and whistles.

Good grief!!! Shopping carts, and appliances!!!! Good lord!

Oh no! Hope you got an antibiotic and feel better. Sinus infections are a bugger!!!

Lin, Eliza: Hope all is well.

Barb - my refrigerator is 23 years old and I keep waiting for something to go. It is from when they first started putting all the newer gadgets on the refrigerators - it has a door within a door and alarms if anything does not work or the door is left open. I love it but I do know what I want to replace it with when the time comes.

For whatever reason when kids steal a bike they like to throw them in the river - the also find shopping carts usually as well as tires and even appliances. This is the 8th year they have been cleaning out the river and they always find lots.

Glad you are able to get everything straightened out.

Eliza - sounds like a lovely day at the school - hope you had a lovely day with your mom as well.

Nola - I hope Don feels well today - glad it was a nice drive for you. Spring is just wonderful watching everything come back to life.

Went to the clinic and i have a massive sinus infection - they offered to write me a Dr excuse but with the other girl off I will go in - just see if I can get out early.

Dons blood is done for 4 weeks and he is resting. I have been out in the caravan taking the curtains down ready to make a pattern and get some material for new ones next time I go near a material shop.
We have had a beautiful sunny day today. All the wild flowers are out and it was a lovely drive into town for Dons appointment.

Eliza how lovely to be part of those tiny childrens learning. You must enjoy them so much. emoticon

Dorothy good your sisters Memorial Ceremony went well.
Good on you being part of the cleanup. They get masses of shopping trolleys out of the river here when they have their cleanup day here. Feel sorry for the kids who owned the bikes emoticon

Barb how are you going choosing a new fridge. I hope you catch some Sales. Decisions, decisions. There are so many different types to choose from. emoticon

Lin what are you up to??

Have a good day everyone. I'm off to heat up some pea and ham soup for our supper emoticon

Tuesday Ė Busy day yesterday! Got Social Security all squared away Ė well for now anyhow. **SIGH** Got the insurance problems straightened out -- again, for now **SIGH**. Still waiting to hear about Dadís IRAs.

Our fridge ice maker is toast and a replacement would not be worth it. So, going to see what kind of fridges are out there and make a decision about replacing the ice maker for the fridge to last another year or 2 (which is about all I think it would last). Or just bit the bullet and get a new one.

Momís table mate really does bring the best out in Mom, so itís a good thing!

Ok, out the door to get to the bank this morning.

Hope everyone is safe!

Nola: OH my. Hope all goes well for Don AND you.

Dorothy: Yes, our date nights are what keep us going.

Awww, so glad the memorial ceremony is done for your sister.

HOLY smokes! 2 bikes in the river? Wonder what thatís all about.

Lin and Eliza: Hope you have a good day.

Nola - how lovely that you have the option of entertaining guests under your grapevine. I am sure you will pick the best option for your ankle. How nice that the caravan has arrived - I am sure you will enjoy it. I hope Dons blood taking goes well.

Barb - glad to hear that your mom has a delightful lunch companion. So nice that you have been pretty good at keeping her calm. And nice that Jas and you continue to enjoy a night out.

Lin - yea for making it back to the gym. I need to do that as well.

Lin - so nice that your son took your mom flowers. 11 certainly was a day to remember - I was at work - it was surreal.

My sisters memorial ceremony went well. Glad that it is done. I helped with the annual river clean u yesterday - my partner and I pulled a bike out of the river and i know of at least 2 more that were pulled out.

Tuesday nearly over. Have been busy helping Don get his chores done around the garden. Tomorrow is his "mucky blood" day. It comes around so fast. With the flu as well he has had only about 5 good days this month. I shouldn't complain as I guess having the blood taken is what is keeping him alive.

Eliza how lovely your son took flowers to your Mom she would have loved it so much. Chicken soup for dinner sounds lovely. emoticon

Barb an ice cream social would be lovely. Great your Mom enjoyed it, Mega willpower on your part emoticon
Yes 9/11 changed the Free world forever. Such a sad sad day. emoticon

Dorothy hope things are going well in your part of the world. emoticon

Lin emoticon on making it to the gym. emoticon

Miraculous Monday, I made it to the gym! emoticon

yes I remember 9/11, a lot like the day Kennedy was shot, I will never forget where I was when I heard the news and how my world turned upside down both times. (as were many, many others')

Nola sorry to hear about the ankle, but they are doing amazing things with orthotics now, so hopefully they can fix you up and make you mobile again. Rest well

Barb and Eliza, sounds like you both had good days with Mom! Yay!

Dorothy hope all is well and you had a good weekend.

Monday Ė Nice visit w/Mom. Her table mate is just a delight.

Yesterday was Grandparentís Day so there was an ice cream social. Nice! I was good and didnít have any . . . I know me too well! NOT a good thing to get started on. But Mom had a ball.

Many calls today to make this morning. Not happy, but has to be done.

My prayers for all those affected by the hurricane. And today is also a day to remember all those who perished in the attacks on the US on September 11th 2001. That day certainly changed all of us forever. Prayers.

Nola: Oh boy. Thatís the trouble w/surgeons, their solnís always involve surgery. At least this one realized that that option was not realistic for you. Prayers that the orthotic specialist can design a brace that will help, along w/the injections. **SIGH**

Eliza: sounds like you had a good Sunday.

Lin: Hope itís a good day for you!

Dorothy: MONDAY! Creeps up on us too quickly.

HUGS

Went to the Specialist today and he discussed operating on my ankle. He said it could be fused in two places, off my foot for 2 months and I may have difficulty driving. None of this is realistic and he realises this. So I have a referral to an orthotic person for an ankle brace, and he is going to try injections again next year, I am happy with all of that. Have to go back in 3 months to see how I am going. emoticon

I am off for an early night, feeling pooped. I'll catch you all tomorrow. emoticon

Sunday Ė Had a good visit w/Mom yesterday. That was refreshing! Jas and I went out to supper. THAT was really nice. Getting used to the weekend pampering! Not bad.

Really nice weather here. I feel so badly for those battling Irma. Daunting times.

Blessings.

Nola: Yes, it is hard when your sick and afterwards to get back on track, but you can do it.

Yes, it just seems like yesterday, and at the same time, a long time ago. Strange. I know heís looking out for me, though.

Glad you had a nice time w/your friends.

Catch up w/yíall later.

HUGS and please remember all those suffering right now in the midst of Irma, the aftermath of Harvey, the wildfires and also the people affected by the earthquake in Mexico.

Lin so glad you convinced your brother to leave his mobile home. You see it all on TV and you feel so helpless. It must be terrible just waiting, or trying to get out and no petrol available.
I am way off track with my eating. I just don't seem to get it all together after being ill. I hate to think what the scales are going to say tomorrow. emoticon

Barb emoticon on the grown ups supper out. Hope you had fun.
4 weeks already since your Dad passed. That is incredible. You will always miss him, and that is the way it should be. emoticon

Dorothy Hope your sisters day went well. You will be glad it is all over and you can relax a little. emoticon

Eliza hope you have a peaceful Sunday emoticon

Had friends today came round for morning coffee. We sat out under the grape vines and it was lovely. Tomorrow I have an appointment with the Orthopedic specialist about the outcome of the ankle injections. We will see what he has to say.
Have a lovely Sunday emoticon

Barb glad Mom is getting along and that you and Jas get a grown up dinner tonight, enjoy emoticon

Dorothy hoping the service goes well today emoticon

Eliza I hope your weekend is great!

Went out for a bunch of fresh veggies for the week and some chicken breast. Trying to get back on track. Watching the weather channel, praying for everyone's safety. Convinced my brother to get out of his mobile home and stay with his daughter at her house, which will hopefully be safer. As much as I love storms, I hate the destruction.

Have a blessed Sunday everyone

Saturday Ė The sun was out and it was a nice day. But I am remembering all those affected by the hurricanes Ė Harvey and Irma, the Mexican earthquake, the flooding and the wild fires. Climate change . . . . can it be denied?

Today is 4 weeks since Dad passed. Doesnít seem possible. I miss him daily!

Well, hope itís a good Saturday. Mom had a melt down yesterday, but it didnít last long. That was fortunate.

Eliza: Wishing you a great Saturday.

Dorothy: good luck w/your housetaming!

Yes, for sure I just feel so badly for all those who have to evacuate. It is just beyond tough.

I hate confrontation too, but some people just bring it out in me. HE is one of them!

Yes, it is unbelievably hard to see the toll Alzheimerís has taken on Mom. **SIGH** I need to protect myself from that, as well, as both her sisters had it as well. But I just try my best to take care of myself daily and not think about that.

NO NO NO . . . . not ready for . . . the . . . next . . . season. GAH!

Awwww, glad you have the picture boards done Ė it is a difficult process to go thru. HUGS

Nola: yes, Jas and I are going out to supper tonight . . . grownup supper! So, guess I have to behave, eh?? NAH . . . gotta have fun, too. Yes!

Glad your caravan arrived and you like it!

Nice to have a visit from friends. Glad you had a good time.

Lin: Yoo Hoo! Have a good Saturday.

Nola - I hope you enjoy your company - I had to do house taming as well as my family is coming into town.

It is frightful for the poor people trying to get out of the path of the hurricane. And all of the fires out west causing so many problems.

Barb - At least I was able to get things straightened out but I do hate arguing with people on the phone - I can not even imagine what you must be going through,

I could not even imagine losing your mother like that - I am so very blessed that my mom is as sharp as ever. Although I do not know how much more of this she can take. I could not imagine loosing 2 of my children.

I am not even ready for the next season either. Although I did switch my clothe out yesterday morning.,

Eliza - I do believe we are suppose to have sunshine today as well - after 2 days of rain off and on.

We got the picture boards done yesterday fir the service today - I will be so glad when it is all done.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Friday Ė Well, started out sunny, then the rest of the day was cloudy w/showers and rain. Feels definitely Fall-ish Some of the trees are beginning to sport color already. NOT READY for the . . . . cough cough . . . . NEXT SEASON.

Mom had a pretty good day yesterday. I am glad. She ate a good lunch, we took a walk and she colored. So, all in all, a good day for her.

Itís Friday, so luckily, Jason is working from home. Still have a little more work to do to get Dadís IRA benefits switched over to Mom and transferred. Iíll have my built-in attorney home to be in on the call today to help get things moving.

Otherwise, so glad to have a weekend to just chill.

Have a great Friday.

Dorothy: Yes, it is a bunch of bull! I feel for you dealing w/the school system and their anal rules about immunizations. Donít get me wrong, I think theyíre important, but honestly, a day or week or even a month isnít going to make a difference! Lord. And so sorry to hear about your DHís frozen spending acct. Glad at least he can get his meds. Jeez!

Wow! Your grandson will be one. Time certainly flies.

Mom just doesnít understand and that is so unlike her. She was sharp, smart, witty and itís so hard to see all that taken from her.

Hope you got another Airbnb acct!

Nola: It is just tragically devastating. Hard to watch.

Yes, I hadnít though about it but we did have the full moon. And she was a little calmer yesterday, so probably that did have something to do with it.

Have fun w/your friends this weekend.

Lin: Hope youíre doing well.

Eliza: You too.

Stay safe, everyone.

Thinking of and praying for all those poor people in the path of the Hurricanes. It must be just awful.

Dorothy hope you get all that "stuff" under control.It takes so much out of you fighting the powers that be for your family. Stay strong!! emoticon

Lin and Eliza I do hope your families in Florida stay safe. We saw the clogged roads and crowded airports on the TV tonight. So stressful for everyone.

Barb could be the full moon time helping to make your Mom unsettled. It effects so many people.(me included) I hope she settles back again soon. Hope you have a restful weekend. The weeks are just flying by. emoticon

Did some house taming and washed the tile floors. Have a couple of friends coming at the weekend so thought I'd better have a bit of a tidy up. We needed it for us any way. emoticon

It is a bunch of bull - and ridiculous but it is what it is. Things tend to get out of control - just like these crazy storms and fires going on in the US and other parts of the world. Did I tell you Michael had one shot a week before his first birthday - boy did the nurse at the Drs office give me a hard time about scheduling him another one but she finally did. I do not make up these rules but sure have to follow them. And then I had to fight with my hubbys spending account as it has been froze over an over charge from our dentist office - they finally unfroze it for 24 hours so hubby could get all his meds. It should be all straighten out by next week.

On a good note I got a little bit of birthday shopping done for my grandson - hard to believe he will be 1 this month, and got a pedi and a hair cut.

Today we will work on my sisters picture boards. I also have to call the funeral home - I guess I better make a list. My daughter Rebecca called me last night and is helping me to make sure everything is getting done - bless her.

Nola - I hope you enjoy your caravan - I think it is wonderful that you two are not giving up on getting away - way to fight back.

I am with you - just let people do what they feel they must do and everyone needs to mind there own business. Enough of all the craziness.

Barb - I can not even imagine how confusing everything must be for your mom - she is so lucky to have you.

Lin - it is a constant struggle to stay on track - must be all the curve balls life tends to throw us.

Eliza - glad that you were able to visit with mom and your Uncle. Prayers to all of those in Irma's path, and all of those crazy fires, and those still recovering from Harvey.



Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

Dorothy, so sorry! don't know why some people feel like they have to share all their dirty linen! I don't care what goes on behind closed doors, I don't want to know.

Nola glad you got the travel vehicle you wanted! enjoy, enjoy!

Eliza prayers for your brother in FL and my brother, niece, grandnieces, great grandnieces in GA, my friends in FL and all the people touched by Irma. It is a scary time for all

Barb I hope Mom has settled down again. I'm loving the cooler weather, but the heat will be back upon CO by tomorrow. And we are getting the smoke from all the wild fires in CA and OR.

I finally made it to the gym this noon and got a 50 min work out with strength and cardio. I've got to get back on track emoticon

Thursday Ė Mighty chilly out there early this morning! 45F! Had to wear a coat. GAH! I want summer back! LOL

Mom had a tough day yesterday . Not sure what was going on, but agitated. Got her to color and take a walk. Calmed her a bit. I think it is just toally frustrating to her not to understand whatís going on around her. I donít blame her at all.

OMG, Irma is just massive. **SIGH** My prayers for all impacted by this storm.

One day closer to the weekend. Thatís a good thing!

Dorothy: Glad that youíve been able to putter and work in your gardens.

Isnít it amazing how much paper work there is in a so-called paperless age! GAH!!!!

OH NO on the chicken pox shot. Some of the immunization requirements are just unbelievable! Because my kidsí were adopted from Korea, their vaccination schedule was just off Ė by mere days Ė from what the school district required. What a ridiculous fight I had on my hands. They ended up getting double-vaccinated for HiB and chicken pox. AND as it went, 2 days after getting the chicken pox vaccination, DD got the chicken pox. GAH!! DS really should not have gotten it as he HAD gotten the chicken pox before. But nope . . . . not good enough. Good luck!

School traffic Ė for sure, crazy.

WHATTTTTTTT!!! You were accused of discrimination and kicked off Airbnb! Thatís awful. Good luck setting up a new account. **SIGH** So sorry that happened!

Nola: Yup, I like that word . . .. codswallop! That covers a lot of territory for sure.

Oh, I was furious! And yes, it is probably a ďcomputer glitchĒ, but . . . . still! GAH!!! I think thatís getting to be my new favorite word!

Nice you got a little caravan! Hope you like it.

Lin: Hope all is well in your part of sparkville.

HUGS ladies.

Dorothy what a load of codswallop. This political correctness is just getting so out of hand.It is here with bells on it really Ps me off. Our country is in the midst of gay marriage. What a waste of oxygen, when there is much more pressing things that need attending to. I don't really care one way or the other, but the bullying that is going on is just incredible. Good you found another site. Sad you will have to lose all those amazing reviews you had on the old one. emoticon

Barb doesn't it make you mad when people (probably computers) are soooooo stupid on little things that should be straightforward. Good your paperwork is nearly completed. Enjoy your Thursday. emoticon

Eliza hope the cyclone doesn't get to you. Thinking of all the people in the path of Irma emoticon

Today we went and looked at the little caravan we liked and we bought it. The money didn't stay in our hot little hands for very long. emoticon It is a very pre loved one, but it will do us for our last few camps that we will do. It arrives on Saturday. There are a couple of things that Don wants to change and we have to get an electric brake controller fitted to our new car, and then we can creep away and give it a try out. emoticon

Got on yesterday and typed a reply and then somehow knocked myself off the internet. Of course I was running late so no time to get back on. Its been a nice couple of days as I did not golf on Tuesday - too wet and it was our last night, and nothing last night so have been puttering in my gardens and relaxing.

Barb - paperwork - ugh - been getting Michael's beginning of the school year paperwork - you know - the stuff we fill out every single year. And then found out yesterday he has to get one more chicken pot shot or he won't be able to go to school on Tuesday. Good greif.

Nola - he has been driving himself to school and so far so good so I guess I can relax a bit about that. What is more crazy than school traffic. Your weather sounds gorgeous - we have been and will probably stay in the 60's - but I love it as there is no humidity.

Eliza - I love a good nights sleep.

So I have not told you my news - I got kicked off of airbnb because I was told I was discriminating. .Basically what happend was I had a group that made sure I knew that they were with the LGBT community which I have no problem with - as a matter fact I do not think they even needed to tell me. But they gave me a bad review that was not true and I called them out as a community - my mistake- and said I may think twice before I would rent to such group again if this is how they are going to behave. Boom - my account was closed down. And it was a private message but it was on the airbnb platform. I was just trying to tell them to treat people as you want to be treated but airbnb took it as discrimination. So I am going to set up a new account on a new sight but am not in a hurry as winter is approaching and we shut it down anyways.

I do find it so sad that I am a very open person but because I am a white person in the USA they are allowed to say that I discriminate. Everyone one else has so many rights and it is the leaders of whatever community is is that make the most noise and probably do not truly represent these communities fairly - the are just loud. And I think this is even true of the women that protested in Washington after Trump was elected - they were not representing me but they said they were.

Wednesday Ė HUMP DAY! Ok, thatís a good thing.

MORE paperwork yesterday. Had sent a copy of my power of attorney papers (can never have too many copies of that it seems! GAH!) to the insurance company. Got a handy little note in the mail today that they need my power of attorney. WHAT??? I sent it. No use fighting it, so off to the post office later today to re-send another copy!

Cooler day than it has been. High of 64. Oh my goodness!

Hereís to a good Wednesday.

Nola: Thatís the perfect temperature. Enjoy!

Yes, had a med change up and it appears to be holding for now. Thanks goodness, as I know it has to be so hard on Mom to go thru these mood changes, and not have a clue whatís going on. **SIGH*

Dorothy, Lin, Eliza: Hereís to a good day.
