Oh my goodness, Donna. Your dogs are giving you more hassle than two small children would. LOL!

Rita, congrats on the weight loss. I am struggling with mine, but hey - we'll get there eventually.

Sue, it sounds like you and your hubby need to sit down and have a serious confab. Is he even aware of how unhappy you are with your marriage? Maybe you are not doing yourself any favours by staying quiet. But, of course, I am the last person to give any marriage advice. LOL!

Mary, I, too, am looking for a nice little laptop that I can take with me (you know, a small sized one)

Pat, I don't envy you the chore of moving. We have moved so many times, that I simply refuse right now to budge. That will allow me to slowly sort and clear out junk I don't want or need. Once that is done, then I'll feel free to move if I want to. I have this "1950's" page bookmarked and pop in every day sometimes twice a day to keep up with all of you. I don't always have anything to contribute, so I don't, but I know what all of you are up to! LOL! Hubby and I are back to talking again. At least we can have a civil conversation, for which I am grateful. I am not one to be in a state of war with anyone, so let's just get on.

God bless,

Pam from SW Ontario

Kerry: Glad you are only getting one GD at a time.

Rita: Congrats on the weight loss. Hang in there. Is the clutter yours or an accumulation of everyone's?

Sue: You are a real go getter these days. The quilt event sounds creative and interesting. Enjoy it.

Mary: Glad you got a new computer. Hope they can transfer everything.

Pam: Please check in with us and give us an update about your life. We think about you every day.

Drama, drama, drama. While I was at work yesterday Emma jumped up and put her front feet on my kitchen table. As she slid off she dragged the table cloth with her and the leaded bottom vase with silk flowers glued in went crashing to the tile floor. Then she took the broken vase and arrangement into the living room to dismantle the flowers. What a mess. Lucky for me , I had a king size sheet on the carpet to protect it and was able to fold it up and dump everything there into the garbage can. Late that evening Grace came in from the backyard with a bleeding foot. I had to bandage it to stop the bleeding and then she bled through that in 30 minutes. SIGH I went out at first light and found that Emma had dragged the base bottom with the arrangement that was left through 2 doggie doors and onto the lawn where Grace got cut in the dark. Geez! Life is never dull here.

Good morning friends. I am home from cold snowy Colorado. We had a great time there but had to find many activities inside. The one nice day we spent at a college going to a science festival. Decklan loved it and we ended up being there over 5 hours. We drove home Tuesday and I went straight to the doctor to get an UTI treated. I had developed it the second day in Colorado. Then once home I had to get ready to host my club on Wednesday night. Now with one day off I skipped the Y and am trying to recharge. Tomorrow we put our house on the market trying to sell it ourselves. I will then be a slave to the special email I set up for interested buyers, hopefully. and I will be on constant duty to keep the house "show ready". this will be hard for me as I tend to let things go once in awhile.
I have tried to catch up and read all the past post. When away it is easy to get way behind. But I know everyone here is safe from any storms, Kerry's granddaughter does not have hearing issues, Mary got a new computer, yea, Donna is back to work, and Rita is still losing weight. good for you. Pam how are you doing?
And Sue has been traveling but is home now paying bills, lol.
I did pretty well on my weight while gone but just this morning I over ate the snacks from club last night. so much so that I now feel sick to my stomach. What is my problem ! i know what it is, I am so stressed about this selling my home and buying a new one and how everything has to work out just right which never does in my world. It is the big unknown!
Well time to get back to work cleaning up the mess from last night.

Pat from Kansas

Well, I just joined the ranks of the LOST posts. I blinked and it vanished. Grrrrrrr

Rita, Congrats on the weight loss. That's always great to see, especially when you know you worked hard to achieve it. I need to refocus and get losing again. What I really need is consistent exercise. Walking to and from the refrigerator isn't enough. I'd love to have your MIL come clean and organize my kitchen. What a wonderful gift. Even on a good day we have a major storage issues. Thank God for the sunroom and the basement or I'd have pots and pans hanging from the ceiling. But this kind of storage is not always convenient. What I'd give for a walk-in pantry. We are in the midst of upgrading our kitchen and have just had granite counters installed. Now on to the under-cupboard backsplash. It took us forever and many trips to the tile stores to find what we hope is the RIGHT tile. I hate these jobs, they take forever, especially with my DH. Why do today what I can put off until tomorrow? Well he's not the one trying to carry on with life in this kitchen, I am. This 2-3 day job is turning out be a several weeks and hopefully not months job. (and I'm not smiling).

Mary, enjoy your new computer (laptop or tablet?). I'd be lost without my laptop. I'm old world and just don't like living my life on my phone. Up until recently I seldom knew where my phone was and only used to play games on. Now that I have these Bluetooth hearing aid, I have to be a little more conscious of where my phone is. I hate having to wear hearing aids and I hate having to carry my phone. But its the price you pay when you are deaf. emoticon .

Donna that's a big move for you Daughter. Although colder than AZ, I've heard Boise is very nice. D has family (that we have never met) there and someday soon to make a trip out there to enjoys the sights and meet the cousins. I'm sure their move will be hard on you. I know how close you are to Noah. How far is Boise from Prescott Valley? Driveable?? That's a big job your daughter is undertaking before this move. Nice of you to help. You soup and dinner sound good. Today I'm cooking a small roast in the crockpot. It's been forever since I've cooked a hunk of beef, I'll get to smell it all day, YUM.

Kerry your daughter is for fortunate you have your and your husband nearby to help out with their children. These days of mobility, few families are that lucky. It does sound like she has her hands full. But pace yourself and don't let them wear you out or abuse the help. We all make our choices and your health and life should come first.

I have traveled a lot lately and I'm really ready to stay put for a while. But seldom do my desires count. This weekend is the start of our areas Quilt Quest-Shop Hop. Rita, you should come join us. My quilt friend Jean and I will break it up over 2 weekends. There are 10 shops thru out the MD/VA region to visit, $pick up a block pattern and fabric$$ at each shop. Collect all 10 and your get a 15% discount at all these shops for a full year. Duh, Like I need more fabric or even this quilt, but it will be a fun couple of Girl Days. Of course the hope of each of these shops is that you will be enticed to buy more fabric and supplies with each Shop Hop stop. HIDE THE CREDIT CARD!!!!! Along with this big outing I need work in a Volleyball game, Cross-country meet, Football game and of course, Church. We go on a cruise in Nov. I may arrange for it to be One-Way, leave no forwarding address, lose the phone and never come back. Boy that sounds good right now.

Yea for the good weigh in, Rita!

Amelia has a doctor's visit on Friday not Thursday like I thought so Aaliyah will go home in the morning. She wore me out this evening. She was SO good at dinner then when the Pastor started Bible Study she got hyper. Every time I got hold of her she got loose. As I took her out I heard him mention how much exercise we were getting but also said he loves the sound of kids at church.

Monday and again today our water has been shut off from 8:30 to 3:00 while the pipes in the street are replaced. It's a terribly dusty, noisy operation and Monday it was being done right in front of our house. We had a one way street. Our neighbor across the street had to do some fancy driving to get out of his driveway. Next they will black top or whatever it is to redo the street pavement. I'll be so glad when this is all over.

DD had a one night lay over at our house last night. She loves her job and it sure keeps her coming and going. I'm living vicariously through her travels and experiences.

TOPS was good to me today. I was loser of the week..haha. I just have to keep focused on portions and no nibbling! I'm so weak but determined at times too.

I have class tonight and GD all day tomorrow. I'm trying to clean up piles of clutter so my cleaner can find someplace to clean on Friday. I get so frustrated at how things pile up for me to decide what to do with. I was at a friend's house yesterday and she opened all her kitchen drawers and cabinets to show how her MIL had totally redone everything, plus filled her freezer with homemade dinners and the fresh apple pie and other "treats" on the counter. Fresh flowers and a homemade anniversary dinner was also prepared for her and DH. I need a fairy godmother like that!!

I try to peek in here and catch up with all of you. Sounds like all is going well!

Kerry, I'm glad Amelia can hear okay! I lost my post twice recently in 2 different Spark areas!

Donna, maybe the drama will subside once your daughter has moved. It will give you a place to go visit, too! You sure pack things into a slow day, lol!

I went to Best Buy and bought a new computer and a year of full Geek Squad support. They will load the antivirus and Office 365 on it and see elf they can recover my documents from the other computer. I don't have my son are ne to help me any more and need this!

There was a different tech doing the hearing test yesterday and she noticed that Amelia had water in her ear so she adjusted the way she was holding her and lo and behold the girl could hear.

Good morning. We are still chilly at 40 degrees but will warm up to the 50's later. I will do some painting at DD's house and then go to work. Not an exciting day.

Kerry: I hope you can come back on and post what you want to.

My day got rewritten for me. Pickle ball was cancelled due to the cold ( 43degrees) weather and drippy. Since I had no plans until cards this evening, I went to DD's house. They have decided to move to Boise ID and have been told they won't get a lot of notice when Bryan gets transferred. She has decided to paint the whole inside of the house including the ceilings and they are learning how to put in laminate wood floors. Since I was bored I went down and prepped the walls and helped pull out carpet and padding.
I also made a delicious beef vegetable soup. Will make Hawaiian chicken for dinner.

I'm so glad your transmission issue wasn't too bad, Donna. It's in the MDO 50's here now but my house with no AC or heat on is still 72, so I'm cozy.

Sue, you had such a busy couple of weeks! I enjoyed your FB pictures of all your Great Adventures! Happy that you and Julie got in some mother/ daughter time, to. That's a rare thing for me now. O hope TJ will enjoy looking at schools and will make a good choice. Will he get a wrestling scholarship?

Kerr, you might get a wall calendar to log all your babysitting obligations! Sorry the date was wrong. It's good to note that Aaliyah is beginning to straighten up, thanks to your continued efforts. Now I s the time to work on her siste, too!!

I spent ran hour and a half on the phone with Medicare, Blue Cross/ Blue Shield and 2 doctor's offices. I'm still getting bills for my wrist surgery. I'm so frustrated but the last guy thinks all will be well. I sure hope so. At least I didn't cry this time!!

I have another modern widow group tonight and a brunch for my water aerobics instructor tomorrow morning. I need a nap!

Well...Larry rushed me out the door for Amelia's test to find out when I got to Trish's that the test is tomorrow morning. We visited a bit while I held the baby then too Aaliyah home with me. Adalynn isn't complaining when we leave and when we get back she just gives me a hug then continues to play. We went to KFC for lunch, I took the lif off mine, scooped some of the food on the lid for Aaliyah. She ate all of hers then switched my plate for hers with a big grin. What a kid! She's learning to behave and her sister is learning to play by herself. I can see a big differences in both of them. Another year or so and we'll need to work with Adalynn on social behavior.

That's a cold day in AZ, Donna. I saw there was a major cold from roaring down from the north, but am surprised it hit so far south. I know you are in the mountains though, it's always colder there. 64 and rain here in MD. Makes we want to curl up with a blanket. Instead I'll sit here and pay bill. That's depressing.

It actually feels good to sit and and not have any wheels moving under me. This past week I was on the road (fortunately, no IN the road) the entire week. Last week was my 50th high school reunion weekend in Upstate NY. Oh what great fun we had, but 4 days of partying is a bit more than I'm used to. Then we drove back here to MD and I had a couple days to do catch-up work around here. On Thursday I went back up to my daughter's overnight and left very early AM Friday for New York City and grandson's college interview. That was a 5 hours drive, but no problems. She and I make a good team and we maneuvered thru the city with little effort. Biggest issues was parking the car, but our hotel gave us directions to their shared parking garage. Locating it was no easy task, be cause everything is one way streets and there were several detours due to construction issues. But we got there. We didn't move the car again. We called for a LYFT car to get us from the hotel to the college on the other side of Central Park. Otherwise we walked everywhere. I definitely got in my 10,000 steps, probably enough to cover several days. We did see all of NYC, but we surely caught glimpses of lots of famous sights. TJ stayed on campus all day and spent the evening and overnight with some fellow Hunter wrestlers. He appears to have had a great time, but very tired. Julie and I had a great and much needed girl day. We had dinner at a little Greek places right by our hotel. What a great choice that was. It was a wonderful meal for food, service and prices. I'd go back to NYC just to eat there again. Now I'm home and trying to get back on a normal routine.

Kerry, although I don't think I want kids around as much as you seem to have them, I really do miss having little ones to care for and share time with. My youngest grandson, Brady, came home with me and stayed overnight. We had a fun time with him, or at least as much as you do with an almost 13yr old 7th grader. He's kind of like a dog, just leave a bowl of food out for him and he's happy.

Mary, I hope you can get your computer up and running or replaced before you lose any files and info. That's so frustrating. My computer is up and running, but my kitchen is not. Friday while I was gone (D was here) we had new countertops installed in the kitchen. That all went fine, but the new under-mounted sink does not line up with the plumbing for the garbage disposal. They have temporarily hooked up our sink, so at least I can use the water, but now we have to have some major plumbing work done to reconnect all. GRRRRR! This was not in the plan. Counters look nice though, now we have to get the new backsplash and under cabinet walls re-tiled. I'm not a decorator and this is a very hard job, too many choices, although I do know I want some variation of Glass tile. Just hard finding the right one to go with counters, floors and cabinets. UGH!

Well, I guess I have to stop hiding behind this computer screen and get busy with some house work. Oh, where to start?

At 39 this morning I had to break down and turn on the heater. Fall is definitely here.

I am having the transmission looked at this morning emoticon . Keep your fingers crossed that I don't need a new one.

Aaliyah also got in some outside time this afternoon and was totally wiped out when I took her home. Tomorrow morning we have to take Amelia back to the hospital for a hearing test. I guess the first test showed she was only hearing in one ear and the next test showed she only heard from the other ear so she has to test again emoticon

Hooray for Aaliyah playing with a church friend. I'm sure it's great for her.

I had a nice brunch with 9 people from one of the widow groups. The restaurant didn't have our reservation or any info even though one woman had gone 3 times in person to set things up! I got there very early and it all worked out so it wasn't a lost cause.

I will go see about a new computer tomorrow. Typing on the iPad is tedious!

I guess m iPad is in sympathy with my computer because I just lost my post!! I walked with Linda this morning and will play hostess to a Modern Widows Club brunch later. Yesterday I got to watch Annalise play tee ball! She got a hit and a run before I left to go to mass in their town. I also went to our community October Fest in the morning. It was a glorified garage sale with beer and food if you wanted, but it was fun.

I logged my food for several days...and gained a pound and a half. I am not a good dieter at all!

Aaliyah is enjoying time alone with us. I'm amazed at her vocabulary and how helpful she is. She didn't get a nap today and after all the fresh air she's rather whiney. She wants me to go outside with her so I better go.

That's awful, Donna. I only take 1 prescription once a month and I was looking through my new info for Part D for next year. Mine isn't even listed!! It went from $5 a month to $100 last year and now, who knows? Guess I will call my doctor on Monday and see if I can just not take it anymore. Hope you can get things worked out.

Is Aaliyah calming down a little, Kerry? Maybe just having one girl at a time would be good for each. I never had help after the first week home. I hope Trish can cope!

I tried for 45 minutes to get my computer to cooperate last night, then 20 minutes this morning. Nothing worked, so I'm on my iPad. All my documents are on the computer...I hope I can find some way to get to them!

Off to walk with Linda in a few minutes.

My IBS meds disinegrated and I asked my MD to reorder the generic the same as before. He ordered the Brand name and 30 pills cost $1000 dollars. !!!!!! Can you believe it? I actually told them exactly how to order the med as they couldn't find the original prescription since it was 3 years old. Now the MD is out of the office until the middle of next week. SIGH.

I'm having lazy day here. The weather is nice and I should probably be out trimming bushes, etc, but I'm being lazy. Aaliyah was disappointed that after getting herself dressed I didn't pick her up. I'll do that tomorrow then keep her overnight so she can attend Sunday School. She needs to be around other kids.

It sounds like another full day for you, Donna! I hope the new modem works. I don't seem to have the issues that I used to have there....but this computer mess has me stumped. I hesitate to buy a new one without the consultation of one of my computer savvy boys. But I don't want to lose all my data either and it's SO irritating!

Annalise got MVP last week at her first game! She is a go-getter and enjoys sports. She asked for baseball over ballet and gymnastics so we'll see how this goes!

Small children's sports are so cute!!!!

I am waiting for Cable One to come and bring a second modem for better functioning. Of course the wait is anywhere from 8-12. That means I miss playing ball this morning. Oh well. It only took 3 phone calls to get this thing. The last technician told me to get my modem off the floor and raise it as high as I could. That actually solved the problem but this modem is free and will guarantee to solve the buffering permanently.
Then work this PM.
Tomorrow some ladies and I are going to a craft fair in the morning and then to the movies and dinner later in the day. Fun

I'm glad your family members weren't impacted by the hurricane, Rita. It really looked bad on TV. My sister in Georgia said they had high winds and lots of rain where they are outside of Atlanta...much more than she expected, but they are fine. Wow, snow! I have a friend in Montana who said the same thing...of course, it can snow there on July 4th!

How cute, Kerry! It's wonderful when the kids begin talking. I was just amazed at David's vocabulary when I was in CA. Holding a conversation with a 2.5 year old was so much fun. He has a fabulous vocabulary.

I will walk with Linda in 30 minutes and it's 66 this morning, with a high of around 8o! We are planning to have happy hour outside under my neighbor's tree again. We do this for as long as we can when the weather cooperates. I get to go see Annalise's baseball game tomorrow afternoon and am looking forward to that.

My oldest was chatting with me about the storm. One area hit was where she bought her first home. No damage in her new area.

This afternoon I'm grandma. Aaliyah is really picking up words quickly. I'm sure Addie will be following on her heels.

I just tried to catch up on all your posts. I'm on Granddaughter duty today so time is not my own. My sister and family are in Pensacola and my niece and family are in Niceville. They both came through Hurricane Michael is a blessed way. I had sure been concerned for them but am relieved they came through it fine. We had some snow flurries in the air yesterday. More is supposed to come Sun, 3-5 inches are a possibility. I didn't make my 3 week weight challenge yesterday. I gained but I wasn't surprised. My body just wasn't feeling it. Time for crafts with the GD!! TTYL

I have 2 friends who are Mom Mom, Kerry! I'd not heard that before they told me of their grandmother names! I'm sure whatever she chooses will be great for you!

So happy Emma is doing okay, Donna. And rest up. Your issues sound like they take the steam out of you!

I picked up a few things at Kroger and got gas. I will go to the Women's Discussion group in a bit, then to the Modern Widow group tonight.

We took Aaliyah to Wendy's for lunch and she was very neat, eating 3 of the nuggets and shared fries with me.
Mary, I think she's narrowed down the name options to either mom mom or mama. Very similar but I'm sure she'll settle on one before long.
After the hurricane went by our temperatures have dropped so we'll save the pool for another day. There was no damage in our area.

It's been very drippy here this morning so no ball but I can play inside this evening

Emma is doing ok. It hurts if we walk too far or they rough house too much.

I'm on the down low today and will get the oil changed later today. So glad I don't have any commitments.

Kerry, just pick a 'grandmother name' and call yourself that...sooner or later, Aaliyah will pick it up. All my grandchildren went with Mimi because that's what I called myself! Hope you have a good day with her today.

Sue, you've had such a lot of activities and now you're heading out again. What an adventure in New York~ I hope TJ will get an idea of where he'd like to be. How exciting. And it sounds like your reunion was great. I love the idea of getting together more often. I keep in touch with a bunch of my gradeschool and high school friends via FB...but it would be fun to see them more often.

Donna, how is Emma's toe today? Yes, it was really scary about the young man last night and I'm sure his parents put up with a great deal of issues, based on how he screamed at them last night. He was probably in his mid to late 3o's. No one that I know seemed to know who he was.

I have a Modern Widows meeting tonight and I'm almost out of gas. This one is closer to downtown but takes me less time to get there. Last month I was on my way to the farther meeting instead of the one I was supposed to attend...don't want to make that mistake again today!

Hello everyone. It's a bright sunny day here. We are going to pick up Aaliyah, have lunch and hopefully she can play in the kiddie pool a friend gave us. Trish said Aaliyah was standing by the door crying for grandma and papa. One day she'll figure out what she wants to call me rather than changing it all the time.

Yes. those poor parents. What their lives must be like and how scary for everyone there.

Kerry: I hope you don't have all 3 girls very often. How is the baby doing? Are the girls gentle with her?

My gut is still not back to normal after that IBS attack a week ago. I was in bed 12 hours last night. I think I will change up to a low bulk diet to rest it for a while.

I woke up to rain this morning, a lovely fresh cool day.

Oh Mary, that episode at Bingo sounds very scary. I understand the parents not wanting any security intervention if they know he's got mental issues and they know how to calm him, but still. One can only wonder what their daily life is like, this might just be the only time they can get out with him, hoping that he stays calm and behaves himself. You have to wonder how much abuse the parents take when they are at home alone with him. Sad situation.

Wow, it took me a long time to read and catch up with you all. Kerry Congrats on the new granddaughter. You ALL will have your hands full. Pat, please have safe travels to CO and enjoy your time with Decklan. 5 years old! and growing up fast. Mary, I hope you can get your computer back on an even keel. I'm not a techi and just hate when my system does strange things. D knows enough to be dangerous, but with this last tablet we bought into GeekSquad. D is trying to get his moneys worth out of it, so far, so good. Donna, sorry to hear about your dog's toe, I'm sure it hurts them just as much as much as the same injury would hurt us. Hope it heals rapidly. Pam, I also enjoy your humor and I know it helps relieve anger, tension and frustration while dealing with your unplanned change of life. Rita, it sounds like you have a house full. "What's one more person?", it's a huge deal if you are the one juggling schedules, menus, sleeping arrangements, etc. How long is he staying? Hope it's not another long-term resident. Diana, where ever you are right now, I hope you are safe and getting some rest. Until this storm has left there area, there is not much you can do but watch and wait. Prayer go with you that your FL home was not severely damaged.

I just got back from 5 days in Upstate NY and my 50th high school reunion. Had a great time and loved reconnecting with all my old friends. We went non-stop all weekend with a mixer, a school tour, State Park Picnic, dinner out with a favorite couple, a 6 winery bus tour of NY Finger Lake Wineries, Farewell Breakfast. We stayed an extra day with D's brother and enjoy time catching up and going out to dinner (again). Also was able to catch up with a couple former neighbors, that was the best part for me. I got on the scales this morning, complete with wet hair still wrapped in a towel, and I was down 2 lbs. Could it be a drank a lot more than I ate? All in all it was a great reunion and we are hoping for another more casual gathering in 2 years. No one wanted to wait 5 or 10 years, it was too scary to think about who would or wouldn't be there.

Today will be another crazy day. By later today we are supposed to get the outer bands of rain from this hurricane. Not expecting anything to worry about, just WET. Of course today at 2pm TJ has a football game. I have limits to my football watching and sitting in the rain is one of them. D can do that, if he so chooses, which I suspect he will. I have a girlfriend coming at noontime for lunch. We have the kitchen torn up and cleaned out because tomorrow I'm getting new granite counter tops, so my friend Pat and I will eat lunch out. AhhhGee, that's too bad. And thanks to TJ's 2pm football game (which is an hour away) I won't have to take D with me. What a great treat, a Girl Lunch. After friend Pat leaves, I have to pack up and head to DD's house. Yes, both cars in Hagerstown and hour away. D will come home, but I'm stay up there for part of the night and daugher, Julie, Grandson-TJ and I will head out very early for New York City. TJ has a college interview at Hunter College in Manhattan mid-morning. He stays all day, shadows a student and spend the night in the dorm. Pretty exciting for a small town boy. Juile and I will stay at a Fairfield on West 58th St, at the edge of Central Park. We had hope to just spend our free time walking and enjoying Central Park, no big city tour this trip, but the weather forecast may change that. Maybe our room will be high up enough that it has a view and we can scan the city from there. Nice hope. Short trip, we will pick TJ up Saturday morning and return to MD, he's in his Wrestling Coach's wedding late in the day, TJ is the Ring Bearer. What you do for your grandkids, even the big ones.

I'm glad to know Diana is safe. Thanks, Donna.

Kerry, three at one time is a lot...I'm glad Amelia slept for you!

i had an unsettling thing happen at Bingo. There was a couple and a young man sitting in the back of the room. After someone won at Bingo, the young man jumped up and started screaming at the older woman, probably his mother, "You MF bitch!" several times. He twisted her arm, then grabbed her around the neck in a choke hold, screaming at the man, "Do you want me to do 'x'?" Someone yelled to get security and the parents jumped up and both said no. The young man calmed down, but wow, it was scary. I think he probably had some mental health issues but with all the old people around and very vulnerable, I hope he won't come back next time.

It has been really cloudy all day but still in th 80s, not much wind so life as normal.
I babysat 3 babies while Larry drove Trish to her doctor's appointment. That started out so nice then Adalynn started getting which got Aaliyah wound up emoticon but luckily Amelia slept through it all. I'm enjoying a nice quiet evening.
Niceville had some dock damage but Dawn hasn't heard of any other serious damage so hope it stays that way.

Diana had been at Bob's reunion and his dad's funeral, Donna, but I'm not sure where that is/was. I have a friend in Ft. Myers and haven't heard back from her. My sister in Griffin, GA said they are supposed to have wind and rain. It sue looks awful on TV. I certainly feel for them...Harvey was such a terrible thing for Houston.

How is your elderly couple after their road trip? DId they do okay? Enjoy Bunco!

I went to an end of life seminar and got some good info. I need to get all that documentation taken care of.

I guess the computer stuff is like everything else: some people love what others don't! I think I do need a new computer but I hope this one will just keep hanging on for a while.

I have an 'end of life' seminar this morning to learn about advance directives, living wills, etc. I need to get all that taken care of. I'll check in later today, my friends!

I use Google Chrome and I love it. I have no problems with my pc over it at all, (and my pc is pretty old). Everything works just fine. So I wouldn't blame Chrome for your ills. I know some pc people get so worked up about what's best and what isn't, and have VERY strong opinions on things, so I would ask a lot more than 1 person for their opinion, then decide for yourself. LOL!

Hooray for no more kids, Kerry, and for finding the gift cards! I hope they will come in handy. Are you in any jeopardy with Hurricane Mike? I hope not.

I went to Best Buy and chatted with a very nice guy about a new computer. He showed me several that were in the general area of what I would pay. I'm using google chrome for my browser since that's what my son told me to use. The guy said that might be why things are messing up. Something about Chrome sucks so much out of it!! Who knows?

Donna, your games sound like fun. I haven't tried anything that would move my that much.
I took the girls home because someone was yelling at them to clean up and properly put the the soft toys in the crib and other toys in a big box. Personally I don't think they were doing such a bad job putting them away. Trish said she was hoping for a few more days without them but I had enough of his yelling. Aaron's still at home to help and I gave her the new roll over thermometer. I just found 4 old gift cards-hopefully they are still good. That will help out after all we spent on our trip.

Donna, retirement is just fabulous, isn't it? I'm so glad you are able to play and enjoy this group!

I went to the Pearland library and got an audiobook for the first time. I've been using our community library but have gone through most of those books on CD's in the past year. I went to Costco and got a few things including one of their fabulous chickens and some marinated shrimp.

I will pick up yard debris and write more birthday cards to friends and family. I love getting out and I love going back home!

All in good time...and with the help of my friends.

Today: I pray to shift the way I approach life, to move deliberately and consciously, to become attentive.

I had so much fun playing pickle ball last night. The skill levels were well matched and we had some amazing games. I felt one game was stacked against me and my partner as the opposing team was much higher skill level. They should have split up with us. But. . . my teammate and I were able to hold our own and had it tied at game point. So much fun and great exercise.

Playing with a different group this morning and then going to the ladies monthly luncheon.

I know I am a broken record but I LOVE being retired.

I've had more computer issues so this will be short and sweet in case I lose the post again. I couldn't even get to the reply section for a couple of hours and had to reply to my other Spark group on my iPad...I might go to Best Buy and see how little I can spend on a new computer tomorrow. I need it!!

I hope the baby won't catch anything, Kerry, but you have gone above and beyond with 2 very active girls since you got back from vacation! I still am exhausted from mine. Don't know how you do it!

Aaron's folks live in Georgia but not too far away. I haven't heard if they've come decor not.
I'm with you when it comes to decorating. That would have been my mother. I guess I missed the line for the gift of decorating.
I think in a few minutes we'll take Adalynn home then hopefully have a quiet evening.

I am NOT a decorator and I don't have a good sense of how to make my house look homey, especially for holidays. But when I was at Hobby Lobby I found a few things that I think look nice for Thanksgiving and brighten things up. My furniture is an oatmeal color with pillows that are gray'green and patterned so I wasn't going to do a lot of adding color. But I think it looks nice.

I hope both girls will be well and can go see their sister, Kerry. Have you seen her yet? I had the twins overnight at their house when Cherilyn had Emmaline and the other grandparents went to the hospital and stayed! I brought the girls to see the baby but had to share the moment with the other grandparents. ARe Aaron's parents nearby?

It poured while I was at HL so things have cooled down a little bit. I went to the library but it was closed. I've gone through so many of the audio books we have in our library here and I wanted to see what the local library had. It was closed for Columbus Day.

We still have the two girls here. I don't want to take chances of spreading germs. If Aaliyah is still fever free they will definitely go home. We're going to pick up on of th he rolling thermometers because she hates holding it under the arm. No fall here, still up in the 80s.

Haha, Donna, that came up when I was with the other grandparents, lol!! Nope, they have a 'just do what we need to do' attitude with Baby #2~! There is absolutely no time to set alarms and program eating, sleeping, pooping, etc. Ah, it takes time to learn, lol! The step-grandmother and I had a good time reminiscing about how they stressed themselves out with that crazy spreadsheet, alarms, and timers! So glad that's not the case now. Ashley is still nursing Mavrey, though and she pumps at work and on the way home at times. She nurses 3 times at home, too. Lots of dedication. I have to hand it to both of them. They are great parents and even under stress they seem at peace with parenthood!

Mary: I am watching a show with new parents and the dad has a baby app that tells him when to put the baby to sleep. It reminded me of your son and wife when they had their first baby. How are they with the second child. Still scheduling eating , sleeping, play time?

I hope Aaliyah will be fever free so both girls came welcome Amelia, Kerry! You sure have your hands full! I hope all is well.

Rita, it took 20 minutes to get my computer to go to the log in page this morning. I turned it on and off over and over and don't know what's going on. I need my Word...I have to do the Red Hat newsletter today and send it to the clubhouse manager, for instance. I might have to go buy a new one and have Best Buy set it up because Greg lives too far away now!! It's always something! I'm glad you had fun at the new mall. I don't seem to like shopping very much any more!

I have line dancing in a little while, then cards to mail and finally, the housework that I have planned on doing all week long. I did get bushes trimmed late yesterday and need to pick all the leavings up and get them into bags today!

Donna, I cringed hearing about Emma ripping off her toenail. Sounds so ouchy to me! I think when we get hit with these medical issues it's taking us longer to recover. It was a whole week for me after my scopes. Glad you can stay home and rest after all the years of working. I hadn't thought of 3 Bean salad in ages. That sounds so good to me. I think I'll make that too!

Mary, I prefer my laptop to my tablet too. I do use my phone to check mail and FB though and the weather! I know how frustrated I get when the computer isn't acting right so I sure hope yours gets to working right!

Trish, is Aaliyah's fever gone now? What do the girls think of their new little sister? Have they seen her yet?

Today we checked out a new outdoor outlet mall that opened in the area. Everything in Christopher and Banks was 50% off. I found a cute jacket and 2 shirts and 2 scarves. I really felt like I splurged. Rex found things at his stores too so I am glad I don't have to feel guilty.

Since it was an outdoor mall I was freezing. Our high was 47 today and rainy and drizzly. I had a sleeveless shirt under my sweater. I had worn it for Mass so I wouldn't get too hot. Never thought of getting too cold later in the day. Weather report says we could have 1.1 inches of snow tomorrow. High is only to be 40 degrees. I have my carpool trip to the airport in the morning and it sounds like it might be a rough drive. Then I have carpool pick up at the school in the afternoon. No hunkering down under a blanket for me tomorrow!

Trish is home with Amelia but we still have the other 2. If Aaliyah comes up with another fever I'll have to take her to the doctor. Right now I need to get her settled down so we can all sleep.

I don't think there was an update with the computer, Donna...but I'm not sure. I went to Google and signed in because I use Chrome as my browser. That sort of reset my home page but it still takes a very long time to load. My Kaspersky says my computer is protected so I guess there isn't a virus. But I like using the computer much more than the iPad and seldom my phone. Ugh. Sorry you feel puny. I am grateful every day for retirement!!

Rita, I don't like candy corn at all so you may have 'my portion' if you like! I got some great ribbon bargains at Joann's yesterday and 50% off of some adhesive. I go through so much of that.

Kerry, I never did see a post with the baby's name. So they did decide on Amelia? It's pretty! I wish the girls would behave for you. Why let anyone beat on you? Can you put her in Time Out somewhere? You need some time OFF!!

No fall here yet. It was in the 90's again and the sun was merciless while I was at the Art show. I hope things will cool off sooon

Emma managed to rip her toenail off today. She is left with a bloody stump of "meat" now. I guess she will grow another nail eventually.

I can't tell you how thankful I am for being retired. I have not felt well since my IBS attack Thursday night and am so glad I can rest and not have to drag myself off to work every morning feeling like crap. I'm not sick, just not myself.

Kerry: I saw the pictures of Amelia. Do you think her baby pics look different from her sisters?

I made 3 bean salad and waiting for it to marinade. Looks good.

Fall is definitely here. We had a rain/hail storm in 48 degree weather at midnight last night. Our high will be 51 today.

Kerry I hope you and Adalynn get some good sleep tonight. Sounds like your legs need a rest. Any idea why Aaliyah has a fever?

Mary, my computer does weird things and it's not even update related. I hate to come back to my computer and find out it's been updated. I just want things left alone!

Donna, pumpkin pie is DH favorite. He'd have that gone and off your hands in no time. In fact, one was bought today while we were at the store and it's sitting on my table right now. Tis the season!

We did go out to the store and then a stop at JoAnns to get some thread. I walked all around that store and found nothing else to buy. Crazy. Usually I could talk myself into finding something! In the check out line, DH picked up 2 small bags of candy though. Now I will struggle to stay out of the candy corn. Does anyone else like that stuff? If it has cinnamon ones, I really love it!

Trish and Amelia ( I think that's how she's spelling it-I'll have to check her FB page.) I have not hond to yhe hospital to visit. I figure if she can't call of text I don't have to rush plus Aaliyah has had a fever the last couple of days. Sarah took Aaliyah home with her this evening so I just have Adalynn here beating the ever living out of my legs.

After I wrote it, I figured it might be Noah rather than you, Donna! I'm glad he's able to play now. I hope it will be a good ting and not cause him any problems. Sorry about Emma but I'm glad you know what's going on.

I'm having big computer issues. I was gone from 9-4:30 and when I got home I opened the computer. I couldn't get it to start up. Finally I was able to log on but I had a message that said something about the C drive needing to do something, then it went blank again. After a long time I was able to use it, but now the home page is reconfigured and I don't have all my easy to get to places on the bar without going back into AOL. It's so frustrating. I didn't 'do' anything as far as I know, the computer just changed all my settings. Ugh.

Mary: Noah is the one that couldn't play any ball for 2 months due to a growth plate issue in his elbow. He is good to go now.

Well, Emma is on antibiotics, pain pills, and tranquilizers for a torn toe nail root. Thank goodness they didn't want to do any procedures. She said it will grow out over time. SIGH

I bought a Costco pie for bunco and cut it in 12 pieces. Only 5 of us ate any pie . I sent 3 pieces home with a lady who asked if she could have a piece for her husband. That leaves me with way too much pie. Pumpkin pie doesn't really freeze all that well so guess who is eating it for breakfast? Oh well, it is almost gone now.

Rita: Glad you had a slow morning. It is hard to run around all day every day. I definitely am slowing down and actually take a nap now and then. That is something I didn't think I'd ever do.

Hi, friends! I've had a very busy day and just now got home. I walked with Linda at 7 this morning, but she'd forgotten so I had to wait until she got dressed. We hope to walk tomorrow, too. Now that there isn't any water aerobics because of the water temps, I'll be walking on the days we don't have line dancing. I went to my card workshop, then to Joann's for ribbon on sale. I did a couple more errands on the way home. I did laundry this morning before I left so now I have to fold it and hang up my pants.

Rita, I had a 6 hour LaMaze delivery with Cherilyn with no med and no complications. I thought that's how all 3 deliveries would be but that wasn't the case with the boys. I,too, am heading in the wrong direction and just can't seem to get a grip. I have gone to bed hungry and woke up hungry but after a big breakfast I was stil hungry earlier this week. I was hungry the whole time I was at my son's house last week. They don't eat a lot and I'd hoped it would curb my appetite. Nope! Good luck on your challenge. do you follow a particular program or just try to cut back?

Pat, I love looking at houses and hope you can find the floor plan of your choice. Make sure to check for outlets, lol...I had to do electrical work because I had no outlets along the entry hall wall all the way to the den and none on the largest wall IN the den! I know you'll be happy to see Decklan. Do you stay in a hotel or with them?

Donna, I thought you've continued to play pickle ball. I didn't know you weren't supposed to for a while. I hope you have a great morning. How is the elderly couple and how was their trip?

I need to investigate a new Plan F for Medicare supplement. Ugh. It seems like I just did that---I'm sure my BCBS will be going up again.

Kerry, is there a baby name for sure?

Pat, I can't believe you'll be right here in CO! So near and yet so far! I'm up here in Arvada, about as far away from where you'll be in the Denver area! How wonderful you get to see Decklan "in person" soon! It's so exciting you found a lot you like and I'd love picking out plans for a new house! You have been working hard to get to this point!

Donna, I so know that out of control feeling. I can get there within minutes. It is scary.This round I am barely into onderland and I'm so wanting to get down enough it's a little more comfortable in being there. I'm afraid if I hold my breath, the scale could go back into the "2s". It's something about evening that makes me just want to eat. It's a true battle to cut myself off after dinner. I've tried drinking flavored water instead, but then I'm up going potty all night.One night that was 5 trips. So, that doesn't work too well either! Have fun at PB today!!

Kerry, will you get to see and hold baby girl today? I wonder how her big sisters will like having her around!

I slept in today. I finally convinced myself that I couldn't spend all day in bed so I grudgingly got up and dressed. I'm sitting here like a blob on the sofa after having a bowl of cereal. We'll go to the store later, the dishwasher is going and I just don't have any oomph. I'm blessed I don't have anything pressing I must be doing! Have a great Saturday everyone!

Pat: I love that you get to look at house plans. I love doing that. How fun. Hope you find exactly what you are looking for. What size house do you want this time?

Rita: I WISH I went to bed hungry. Eating after dinner is out of control and the scale is showing it. I am out of control and that is scary. I have to get focused. I noticed that when I lost weight and got to onederland my hips didn't hurt while sleeping anymore. It is so worth it not to let my weight creep up again.

Noah and I have plans to play pickle ball this morning. The first time in months due to the orthopedists orders. I hope I burn a lot of calories and then don't eat those calories up this evening.

Kerry congratulations on your new granddaughter. Hope all is going well this morning with them.
Rita good for you in resisting temptation! I have also gone to bed hungry two nights in a row, skipping snacks. And I am still alive this morning so guess it didn't kill me, lol. It is now turning chilly and we are headed to Colorado soon and I have very few long pants I need to be able to wear.
Donna sorry about Emma's foot. Hope it is an easy fix. And I can sympathize with your tummy issues as I am having issues myself. I am pretty sure mine is due to stress which will not go away any time soon.
Pam still thinking about you and praying you are coping. I see on FaceBook you still have your sense of humor. I hope it is helping you now. And loved the picture of your granddaughter's picture on FB she is so cute.
Mary are you back in the groove at home now? Sounded like you had a super busy visit with Chris and family. We are leaving Tuesday to go spend a week with Decklan. I can hardly wait although I am afraid he will be all wound up since his other Grandparents are there now and they will stay until the day after we get there.
Sue hope you are enjoying your reunion. 50 years seems so long when we are so young, lol.
Diana hope you are getting some much needed down time. I know you are in FL now.
We put down a deposit on the lot we want so when we get back from CO we will meet with the builder to look at house plans. If we like what we see and can afford it we will then have to come up with 10% of the cost and we will have a place to go to when our house sells. If we don't like the options of house plans or the builder then we get our money back and we start all over again. Needless to say I hope we like everything!
We are finally getting some much needed rain here and I have a full day ahead so better get going.

Pat from Kansas

Kerry, congratulations on your new baby Granddaughter!

Donna, I hope your IBS has settled down and you are on the mend. The popcorn sounds really good though. Poor Emma! She's really suffering too!

Mary, I marvel at how we pretty much make it through pregnancy and delivery! I didn't have any complications but I did have long labors and plenty of episiotomies! I'm sure glad you and the boys made it through! I have a Costco card and my kids have a Sam's Card. They find some really great stuff I haven't seen at Costco.

I ate carefully today and for dinner we used a gift card to BJ's. I kind of "splurged" with a 1/2 glass of Octoberfest beer and 1/2 of my shrimp scampi. When I got home I topped it all off with a 110 calorie serving of Flan from Sam's Club.I wanted to just keep eating all night though!! It took every ounce of strength I have not to graze in the kitchen tonight. Having the 3 week challenge to lose weight at TOPS every week must be keeping me in line. I'm going to bed hungry now at 10:40 p.m.

Kerry, I saw on FB that Trish told friends where she was but not any pictures. Hope all is well.

Donna, yes, popcorn can mess you up! I hope your work day wasn't too bad. Rest up. Here's to Emma doing okay with her foot...you, too.

All in good time...and with the help of my friends.

Today: I pray to shift the way I approach life, to move deliberately and consciously, to become attentive.

Kerry: Congrats on the new grandbaby. Sorry she didn't tell you.

Mary: I had a very flavorful popcorn mix for snacks and I was so nervous I ate too much of it. That caused the IBS. I'm just tired and sore today.

I don't have plans for the weekend. Emma hurt her foot and I have been trying not to have to take her to the vet but now on day 3 it is more painful than before so here we go tomorrow. SIGH I hope my $100 will at least get me pain pills and tranquilizers to keep her off of it.

Wow, Kerry. Placenta previa with no complications? She was exceptionally lucky. I had a full previa with Chris. He was a footling breech and the doctor told me there was a 50/50 chance of both of us dying! With Greg, it was a partial. It all turned out fine, but it was a scary time with both boys. I'm glad Trish and the baby are both fine.

Donna, sorry about your IBS attack. Do you think it was nerves after the fact? Hope you will be okay to work.

I finally texted Trish and she apparently only posted it on FB rather than letting grandparents. The placenta came first but everything is good now. She was 6 lb 15 oz.

Rita: This bunco group started as a couples group. It has morphed over the years with some of us losing a spouse for whatever reason. So there are still some couples coming. There are always 12 of us. It went well. Someone served coffee while I served the pie and I realized later that she never offered the tray of sugar and cream. Oh well. They loved my kitchen as we all live in the neighborhood and have the same cabinets etc. I was happy about that.

I am exhausted today. Had an IBS attack last night before being up from 3 - 4. My insides feel like there was a boxing match inside of me last night. I am resting until I have to go to work.

Once it's 65 inside my house, I turn on the heater, Donna! In Texas, that might also mean that I'm turning on the AC later in the day!

Pam, their dad's name starts with an A!

Kerry, can't wait to hear that she's here.

I went to Sam's today for the first time. I had a discount on membership and got a gift card so I decided to try their store. I have Costco but that's up this month. I'll go to their store over the weekend and compare again! I have a Red Hat meeting in a few minutes.

Donna, how did Bunco go? How many ladies come for it? I think I've only played once at a Red Hat party. Love the picture of your relaxed baby Emma!

Mary, how is your grandson feeling after his surgery? It can't be much fun!

Kerry, have you seen baby girl yet? You'll have to give us all the scoop on her! A c-section isn't easy so I hope Trish can have a good recovery.

Yesterday I made some apple crisp from apples a gal brought to TOPS. It sure tastes good. I have to pace myself with it. I hadn't done any baking in ages so I consider it a real accomplishment. My prayer ministry on Sunday night was rescheduled so I have a very laid back long weekend. Love this! My DIL's brother is coming for the weekend though. It's enough I already have a houseful but then relatives of relatives really bloat the household. I thought he'd stay downstairs with the kids but they claim there isn't room. So, since DD is home in MN this weekend, he is staying in what I now consider her room. This trip and stay was all arranged before I knew anything about it. I am just going to ignore the whole thing!

Ho hum. 3 AM and I can't sleep. Soooooo glad I don't have to get up in the morning and go to work.
We are down to 49 degrees tonight. BRRRR! Almost time to turn on the heater.

Kerry, is there a particular reason that all 3 girls' names begin with A? Or is that just a coincidence?
