Way to score, Karen! Enjoy that new car! Maybe you can take all of us for a ride and show off a little! (I got in some carpet cardio today, too!)

Dorothy: Good luck with your last golf game of the season, and enjoy your bowling tomorrow!

Feel better Eliza!

I'm glad you're enjoying puttering outside Nola! I'll bet you have some yummy veggies in a few months!

Barb: I second your description of Alzheimers - it IS "cruddy"!

Back in town after trip number one. Will leave on trip number two Saturday morning. I'm excited - in a couple of weeks, ALL FOUR of my girls will be in town! My oldest DD is flying in from Missouri for a week so her two sisters from northern Utah decided to come, too! My youngest DD lives in town, so we will have some serious girl time! FUN! FUN! FUN!

Tricia, Utah

Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels!

Karen: Hope you really like your new car!

OH boy, do I know that look. Mom has severe abandonment issues. I am not sure why, but I assume it’s part of the general anxiety that goes along with this cruddy Alzheimer’s!

Eliza: I know. My Mom has memories of my brother’s death, too (08 Februsry 1982) But after we chat about it awhile she settles down. It is sad.

OH my! Good luck w/the job interview.

Good luck w/the skirt, too!


Dorothy: OMG . . . . I need a few more laid back days! Spar day, though didn’t go as planned. Did at least get Mom to wash up. PHEW SOME progress.

Hope the last golf night was good!

Nola: Enjoy your spring!

LOL I’m up early with my mom and my new car on the brain emoticon
I overate a little and will need to stop that, so after a few cups of coffee it's carpet-cardio


Nola ~ are the grapes filling in? Hope your nails are holding up to all that yard work. Pedicure in order soon…
How is Don doing, any word on his eyes after getting that shot?


Barb~ Hope you days continue to stay calm and your mother has a good week. After dropping my mother off, I always remember her last look, that scared look keeps me worried until I see her again.


Dorothy~ shopping for the start of school doesn't that rank up there with car shopping. Glad Michael has all his supplies and is back at school.
So it's official Fall is in the air, enjoy the festivities as you switch from golf to bowling. Are you wearing you champion golf shirt?

emoticon

Elizabeth are you wearing your newly mended skirt? emoticon

Karen are you up yet? All excited about the new car? Have a great experience getting used to it. emoticon

Dorothy have a lovely last golf game. YUK on back to shoes and long pants and warm clothes etc. I hope your winter is a short one. We have had the hottest winter for 20 years and in Mels State they have had the coldest since 1966. It is all over the place. emoticon

Eliza how is the skirt going, if I was closer I would do it for you. I used to do a lot of that sort of stuff for extra money to make ends meet at a low time in my life. Hope the Aleve works and it doesn't develop into a cold. emoticon

Barb I hope your Mom has a good day today, and you get out into the fresh air. Love the idea of the bubbles and spa day. A hand massage and manicure just might be the bait you need. emoticon

I did some more outside work. I'd rather be out there than house taming. It is a lovely time to be out in the garden. emoticon

Have a great day everyone emoticon

Karen - glad you got the new car figured out. Buying cars is the pits. But it is nice to have a new set of wheels. Hope you enjoy it.

Barb - hope the spa day works - even though it makes a bit more work for you. Glad you were able to have a laid back day - I think you needed it.

Nola - Hope you have nicer weather today. We are in the 80's all week but I am pretty sure it is the end of it. Pants and shoes season will quickly get here.

Eliza - hope the aleve work and you are feeling better. I had to fill my car as well yesterday and get it inspected. Thank goodness all it needed was a light bulb.

After work took Michael to get a few things for school - it starts today. Once home I m owed the lawn and watered the plants. Tonight is our last golf night if we make it and tomorrow bowling starts!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

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

Monday – laid back kinda day yesterday which I think we all needed. Ready to tackle the week.

Motivated to make this a good day!

Nola: Boo on the rain and chilly weather!

Yes, that’s the Ann Landers solution (she was an advice columnist here . . . . very wise) . . . . the WET NOODLE!

Oh I wasn’t aware of the eclipse as well. Double interesting!

Good luck w/the cook books. I love cook books too, but do a lot of my recipe searches on line. BUT I use my books too.

Yes, will try the bubbles and spa day. She does like her nails done, so maybe if I promise a mani after the bath, she’ll bite for it. **SIGH**

Eliza: Hope you’re not getting a cold too!

Karen: BINGO. That’s the way to handle car shopping. Have DH meet you across the street. Brilliant. Frankly, I’d rather do just about anything than car shop. Good luck.

Tricia, Nicole, Wendy, Carol, . . . and all the rest of you beauties, hope it’s a good Monday.

Going to try this again - was working on a post at home and my computer started acting up. I have a lot of cookbooks as well Nola and have a few recipes in each that I love. But I look up a lot now too. My grandbabies are 3, 8, and 10 - I have two eight year olds - love them all.

Barb - poor mom - going to have to trick her to get her a bath - the bubbles may work - make it a spa day. emoticon

Karen - love how you pamper your mom!

Eliza - the super moon was beautiful - I caught some glimpses of it.

Such a busy weekend but got much accomplished - I think I am glad to back at work - emoticon

A raining day today and chilly for us. I have been going through my cookery books (of which I have masses) and sorting out a lot to go over to the Red Cross Shop. The DILs aren't interested and they are only taking up space here. Most people, including me, are getting the recipes of the Internet. Although I hate the too ing and fro ing to the computer.

Barb and Karen I hope you have your mothers under control. The image of Nurse Rachet cracking a wet noodle brings a smile and a "been there done that" feeling. emoticon

The herbs I have are 2 varieties of Thyme, chives parsley and mint. Then there is lemon grass, basil, sage, and we have a bay tree. Also the ginger, Turmeric and galangle are all sprouting. Cilantro just doesn't like it here, I cant understand why not as it is just like flat leaved parsley. I think that is all, and we use all of them. emoticon

Eliza the Super moon on the 28th September there will also be a lunar eclipse. You will see it but in Australia we miss out on the eclipse. emoticon

Dorothy are your Grand babies still there or have they gone home. How old are they? emoticon

Sunday – rained all day. But did get out, so that was nice. Did get out, so that was a nice break.

Mom had a good day today. Had a nice family dinner and actually shared lots of laughs!

Hope you have a blessed Sunday.

Dorothy: Fortunately Mom had a better day yesterday, but is not so upbeat today. So it goes.

Good luck @ the cabin. LOTSA work you have to do!

Nola: OH yes, John’s calls always put a smile on my face. That’s a good thing.

What herbs do you have? Love basil, oregano, chive, cilantro, parsley, thyme, sage and rosemary. Delish.

Cool! We could not see the super moon last night, but maybe in October then!

Karen. OH boy. Can’t win with the sugar free/fat free vs. the whole food. But now you kow what happened. I have to measure my milk . . no eyeballing. Cannot drink whole milk, though. Drink either cashew or almond milk.

Tell me about the wet noodle syndrome. Had to don my NURSE RATCHET persons (toned down!) to get Mom to W-A-L-K. Has to move. Did do a good job today. Have to keep after her daily.

HEY . .. . that’s genius. I’m going to try bubble blowing to get Mom to take a bath or shower. She just REFUSES! I just don’t want to make it an issue, BUT . . . . she’s going to have to at some point! I”ll try the bubbles.

Today is mom’s bath day so it’s bubble making for us.

Will also try to attend church and the thrift store sale emoticon emoticon
At my last doctor appointment he said stop buying low fat or sugar free stuff, so the whole milk is tasting like cream WHICH contributed to me overate cereal yesterday... that’s 1,2,3 BIG BOWLS

SO HERE’S MY EXERCISE PLAN emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nola ~ thanks for keeping track of these supermoons
Next time I will need to lay out my new ‘ocean-front vacation crystal’ and soak up all those rays
Love thinking of you and your potted herbs emoticon


Barb~ hope we have clear skies for the next moon gazing.
Best wishes for next week. My mom will go back Monday then return Saturday for 11 days. The care home customized an exercise program that seems to be helping. The wet noodle syndrome has started emoticon


Dorothy~ I can feel all that baby loving from here emoticon
your cabin renting sure picked up fast, what wonderful memories for all those families


Wendy ~ we are counting the days until your home emoticon emoticon


Nicole ~MISSING YOU

Tricia~ how was the baby shower? When does school start? Are you home for the winter with school aged children? Thinking of you and wish we could exercise together

Elizabeth~ did you see the supermoon, like Barb it was cloud cover here

Dorothy I'm glad you are having a lovely time with the Grandbabies. Making a home is what it is all about. Who cares if it looks a disaster at times. It is so good your cabin renting is going so well. Have a good day emoticon

Karen I just Googled your car, it looks beautiful. Good luck with the buying. Hope you are having a special time with your Mom.

Barb good you had a better day with your Mom and to see a sense of humour peeking out. Nice to hear from John as well. Nice to know he is doing well. Big relief for mothers when they get to that stage. emoticon

Eliza it was a great Supermoon wasn't it. The one on the 28th September is supposed to be better still. There are three in a row. One in October as well. emoticon

I had a good day. Did some cooking this morning and repotted some herbs this afternoon emoticon

S a new week tomorrow. Make it a good one emoticon

Karen - loved the picture. Hate car shopping - good luck. Have fun pampering mom!

Barb - funny what the full moon can do! Hope mom has a better day. emoticon

Eliza - it was a beautiful super moon - caught a few glimpses of it - but it was overcast here.

Nola - I am enjoying the full house and grandbabies but they sure keep me hopping and my clean house is a disaster. But it is a home - emoticon

Need to get up to the cabin and mow today - and get it ready for our next visitors. Hubby and SIL and been busy all weekend doing maintenance on it!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Karen: Chevy Malibu -- nice car!
Saturday – Rainy day from the afternoon onward. Supposed to lighten up this afternoon. Good thing1

Mom had a much better day today. Very confused today, but in a pleasant mood, so THAT is a huge improvement from Thursday. Even had flashes of being humorous! That is like the old her.

John called and is doing well. He does call but not too frequently as so busy. He is happy and sounds like he’s doing well. That’s all I need to know.

We had a long day car shopping, but have decided on the Chevy Malibu, want it used one year old, white or silver. We came close today but we really aren’t ready yet.
Also checked out truck campers and was surprised how expensive they are, so more shopping around

Nola happy spider pursuing emoticon emoticon emoticon


Barb thinking of you and your mother’s struggle with dementia emoticon

Wendy so glad for the update emoticon emoticon emoticon


See you after the FULL MOON (we won't see it through the smoke but glad to know it is there)

Oh, tomorrow morning we are picking up mom for two days so we can fuss over her this weekend

Saturday morning here and a big day planned brushing down walls and chasing spiders. It is amazing how once the days get sunnier and brighter the corners and webs show up emoticon

Barb it is full moon tomorrow night (Sunday) could be why your Mom is getting a bit toey . I know I am. It was so beautiful last night looking at me emoticon

Karen I also loved your pictures and you look terrific. It is great to feel the energy of the sea.
Did you find a car? emoticon

Eliza sad the guy made a lot of mess for you to clear up, especially in the heat. Good your son stepped in to help. emoticon

Wendy is at the end of week four and is doing it all herself. She said she feels confident with it and she herself is feeling great. Only two more weeks to go. emoticon

Dorothy thinking of you as you have a great family weekend.....enjoy!

Well I've put off house taming long enough I'd better hop to it.

Friday – thank goodness! Yesterday was a difficult day for Mom. She was just so very confused and actually thought I was not alive. Don’t know where this came from, but finally got her settled down.

So, today started with a walk. A good thing. Nothing like a walk @ zero dark thirty. LOL But saw the sunrise. That’s a treat.

Nola: Glad you haven’t gotten the storms. Hurray to the baby melons!

Dorothy: Definitely feels like fall, but that’s all right by me. JUST DON”T LIKE WINTER! ACK. Wish we could go right from Fall back to Spring!

Have fun w/those grandbabies.

Karen: LOVED the pictures. Thanks! You look GREAT!

Good luck w/finding a new car. **SIGH** Hate car shopping.

Eliza: Hmmmm . . . . that’s odd about the fellow who did clean-up! Aggravating, but you tried to help him. Too bad it resulted in more work for you!

Nola ~ Robert got a laugh about your message in a bottle request and with your storms brewing it might have made it. Dill for the butterflies sounds like summer is on the way
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Barb~ glad to hear you done at the dentist for a while, and that Mr. Spot is feeling wonderful again. Thanks for the Nurse Ratchet clip I’d forgot that seen


Dorothy~ so this weekend, it’s knee deep in baby stuff LOVE IT emoticon emoticon
LOL about escaping from the nursing home “BEEP BEEP, THERE SHE GOES”

Wendy ~ thinking of you, hope this second round is going OK emoticon


Tricia~ happy travels and 'grandma' enjoy your new baby shower emoticon emoticon
I hear you about losing and maintaining, I’m back up after vacation. But after a year of trying the scales have started moving down again. One ounce at a time.


Elizabeth~ hope your mother is using her walker and you’re doing your calming exercises. Sending my prayers and thoughts your way

Well if its the full moon we could all wander around and dance like no one is watching emoticon it is amazing that they have not found away to track people with dementia or autistic children.

Nola - bonus love those surprising little plants that pop up. I have a few tomatoes that have sprung up. My neighbor has one and it looks to be a cross between a zucchini and and an acorn squash. emoticon Sounds like you got a goo workout at the red cross - way to go! emoticon

Barb - we have been having much cooler temps here as well but it has been nice. Sure feels like fall. Next week it is suppose to jump back into the 80's but I am sure it will be short lived.

Got my kitchen and bathroom looking good last night and got my dusting and vacuuming done as well - hooray. The grandbabies are arriving tonight.

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

We were supposed to get storms today, but so far only threatening clouds. I was able to get out and do some tidying up in the garden. I found a self sown rockmelon/canteloupe with baby fruit already on it. Was thrilled about that . The self sown things are always much stronger. Also threw some dill seeds around to grow for the butterflies.

Dorothy did you get your cleaning done? There is a home over here that could do with your talents emoticon

Barb I hope you have a great Friday and the weather is beautiful for you.

Nothing much is happening here I'll look in a bit later. When do your clocks change?

Don't forget to Weigh In.

Barb I am going to be the looney one that wanders around all night with the Full Moon. All my life it has affected me. I just love the full moon, I could sit out under it all night. I think they may need one of those microchips so they can keep tabs on me. Give mr Spot a hug. Glad he is feeling better. emoticon

Dorothy: LOL! I'm going to be that one who escapes too if I'm ever in that situation! You know, it is amazing to me that there ISN'T a chip to put under the skin for humans as there is for animals. Sounds awful, but in circumstances, like those with Alzheimer's who can wander and then not be found, it might be a solution! Anywho . . . enough on that one!

Good luck w/the cleaning-for-company!

Thursday – Well, Mr. Spot the Wonder dog had been ill all Tuesday night, so Wednesday was a slow day for me. But thank goodness is Mr. Spot is fine today. I think he must have eaten something that didn’t agree with him.

The temps are wonderful! Loving it.

What is with the stock market??? OH MY LORD! Tuesday the precipitious drop and yesterday a gain of 619 points. Good grief! We'll see what today brings.

Nola: Glad you had a good day @ the Red Cross. Yes Spring surely does prompt one to house tame big time!

Barb thanks for the link. I'd forgotten that Nurse Ratchett had been in that movie. I think you would make a good one if necessary. emoticon I had a smile about DDs note taking. At least you will know she has your best interests at heart. After my Mum passed away after us caring for her for so long. Don and I wrote up what our sons were to do for us, no matter how stubborn or whatever we became. We did not want them to have all the guilts that go with some of the decisions that have to be made. BTW great the dentist is finished.

Dorothy enjoy your company this weekend. Do you have to go up to the camp as well?

I had a huge morning at the Red Cross Shop. I think everyone is doing Spring cleaning and turning out their cupboards. I know it was a great workout for me. I came home exhausted.

Have a great Thursday emoticon

Barbie yea for being done at the dentist for a bit. I already teased my daughter's about being the one the one that escapes the nursing home. She told me she was going to have a GPS chip in me. Lol

Nolan. I am so jealous that your spring has just begun. I want a redo. It goes by so fast

Bowling meeting had to be moved twice last night because the other places were busy. Other than that it was good. Tonight I need to clean as I will be having company all weekend

Wednesday – well it was a pretty good day yesterday. Had my dental appt. Don’t have to go back until December. HURRAY!

Dad had to go to IL. Did fine Mom was anxious all day, but kept her as calm as possible. Doing well now that Dad’s home.

Gray, cloudy day all day but no rain. So, that’s all right.

Otherwise, uneventful, thankfully!

Dorothy: LOL . . . . my DD has already said to me, “I’m taking notes right now, because I know you’re going to be just like Papa.” What? ME??? MOI?? HOPE not when it comes to the stubborn thing.

Glad that the weather cooperated for golf. Have fun @ your bowling meeting.

Nola: Good for you and Don using whatever you need to whenever you need to so you remain balanced and don’t fall!

Wow! Getting ready for Spring. Bet that feels nice. Already budding grape vines. Awesome.

So glad to hear Wendy is doing so well AND going on a trip . . . . staying out of trouble! LOL

Here's a clip from ONE FLEW THE CUCKOOS NEST . . . . Nurse Ratchet in action. Incidentally Louise Fletcher (the actress portraying Nurse Ratchet) says watching that movie is painful for her because that's not how she is!

Barb I think we need to share a video of Nurse Ratchet in full flight emoticon I am a great believer in people using their walkers and walking sticks and those emergency things around the neck sooner rather than later. It is one thing to have them and another thing to get them to use it. We have walking sticks that are around and we use them if we have to. Luckily not much at the moment, but it sure beats having a fall. So glad your Dad is Ok. He must feel good deep inside that he has you around. emoticon

Tricia you are one travelling lady. Hope the munchies stay under control. It is so hard to stay on track when you are not at home. Have a great time emoticon

Dorothy good your brother is OK! Bowling time almost here. It is amazing how fast the year is going. Great you are still golfing emoticon

Eliza hope the temps are getting a bit cooler for you. You know old people don't have many powers left except to manipulate their families, I guess being stubborn is one of those. emoticon

I was texting with Wendy tonight. She is doing so well, her nephrologist is very pleased with her. She is going on another bus trip next weekend which should keep her out of mischief.

I had a good day. We started cleaning up the verandahs in readiness for getting the outdoor furniture out and putting it in place. The grapes are already starting to bud up and are looking good. I also finished pruning the roses emoticon

Have a lovely Wednesday emoticon

Tricia - I thought i was a busy mama - wow you take the cake - think you need some roller skate to get around! Safe travels!

Eliza - mom can be stubborn!

Barb - I bet your dad loves having someone help out - just does not like loosing his independence and admitting he is getting old. I am sure we will be in the same boat.

Nola - all went well with my brothers surgery.

Karen - enjoy!

The birthday celebration was fun and I managed to get a golf game in afterwards with my golf partner - even though the skies were dark! It was perfect temps for golf. Tonight is our bowling meeting - already!

Eliza: It's been hot here, too! Today, though, we have some clouds in the sky, and might actually get a shower or two today or tomorrow! My fingers are crossed. The high temp is forecast to be 99. It will be nice to be out of the 100+ temps!

Barb: I'm thinking of getting my mom a cane. She's getting more and more wobbly! I had to laugh at your "Nurse Ratchet" comment! I haven't seen the movie, the previews were frightening enough!

Karen: Glad you peeked in before you left! Your posts always make me smile! Have a great time, and be safe!

Nola: I'm so impressed that you've maintained your weight so well - and for a YEAR! emoticon Any tips are welcome!

Dorothy: Have fun at the birthday celebration and on the golf course!

Looking forward to a couple more busy weeks. Going out of town tomorrow to help my parents. Friday, I'm traveling to Salt Lake City (4.5 hours north) to go to a baby shower for my daughter. It will be great to be there, but I don't much like driving distances. The next weekend, DH and I will be driving 7 hours north to attend the blessing of our newest grandson. I'll be keeping the road hot! It's always hard for me to make healthy food choices when I travel, and I like to eat while I'm in the car - to make the time go faster. I'll have to prepare some bags of fruit and veggies to snack on. Have a nice day, all!

Tricia, Utah

Nothing tastes as good as being healthy feels!
