Cathy's horse riding instructor friend passed away. That is why Cathy is missing in action. Very sad.

Day off for me today due to a public holiday. Finally get a chance to catch up with myself.

Becky, do hope the fires get contained quickly. ouch on the high temps, hope it cools down for you all out there.

Georgia, sending HUGS your way.

Everyone else, do hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. off today from work, so playing catch-up with Spark and FB. hoping to try a new to us bbq place after my dd gets home from work. nothing much else new here, just taking things one day at a time. my eating is better but still need to get that exercise into the equation. at work i'm on my feet all day/night only sit down for 15 min break and lunch/dinner when i am there. my spark tracker thingy is a pain...some days it's records and some days it doesn't....so i have given up on using it. thinking about getting something else, but need to research first. do you use something to track your activity each day?

Hey there sweet friends...sorry for absence (again) but got huge stuff going on....we have court Tuesday morning for my 13 year old (he loves fire and set a small wreath on fire in a store...no damage except to his hands and to the wreath, but he is being charged with 1st degree Arson, class A felony...20-50 years in jail and a $10,000 fine)...we have all kinds of evidence supporting his autism diagnosis as well as his brain injury from January, but we will still have to go through all of the court crud....he (and I) both scared, so please pray for us...
hugs and love to everyone of you, miss y'all,

It was the fun table - the women at the other tables were all either chasing toddlers around the deck and house or hugely pregnant and aching (or both). I don't miss those days!

Good for you, Georgia! How fun! I have not gone dancing in ages.

I spent the day at my sister's house for my niece's baby shower. Sara's girls will be not quite 16 months apart. Everyone her age at the shower either was pregnant or had a child under 18 months. I hung out at the "seasoned table" - everyone (Sara's cousins through grandmothers) who are done having kids. :) It was a nice time, but I am pooped - in 4 1/2 hours there, I only sat down for about 10 minutes.

Wishing everyone a super Saturday evening and Sunday!

Went dancing last night and my whole body is so tired but a good tired. 6 hours sleep but not enough rest as I am still aching al over from having woken up some muscles that thought they had gone on a permanent vacation.
Feels nice to have forgotten woes and sadness for a few minutes.

Cathy hoping all went well this weekend for you. Thinking of you.

God girls on getting the flu shot. I got mine earlier this year but ended up with a virus that was going around affecting the throat and with headaches. Be careful.

Supposed to be hot today. Would be nice after the cooler days we have had.

Good job, Dee! I have an appointment to get my flu shot at work in October. I will make appointments for my sons, and my DH will need to see his doctor this fall about his latest blood work anyway. Last year, he didn't get his flu shot until he stepped on a rusty nail and needed a tetanus shot (so I asked the nurse to give him a flu one, too). :)

Hugs to all! Wishing you peaceful days, fulfillment at work, and lots of love and happiness in your lives. :)

well done Vicki I am so happy for you. good luck and a good year.

Dee thank you. I cope but it is hard to explain the actual emotions I feel. Some days are good and occasionally I get blue. Time has given me strength.

Cooler weather again. Days getting longer though.

Cathy take the reins the Good Lord has given you and pull them in tight. My husband is a passive man too but knows when I feel strongly about things he is to support me ....it is not the way we wanted things to be like but seeing we have to be the strong ones we have to do the right thing even though it hurts so much. I put myself in a numb zone and just do what has to be done. Every now and then the Good Lord sends sunshine to my heart and I feel ok.

Praying he does the same for you. It is only 168 hours or a little more for you until this is all over and they have nothing more to whine about. The wedding will be over and those two will begin their life of a couple. Then reality of how hard it really is will fall into place. Let your ex support them if can...financially etc. It will come down to money eventually. I know.....

"Slow me down, Lord. Ease the pounding of my heart by the quieting of my mind. Steady my hurried pace with a vision of the eternal reach of time. Give me, amid the confusion of the day, the calmness of the everlasting hills. Break the tensions of my nerves and muscles with the soothing music of the singing streams that live in my memory. Help me to know the magical, restoring power of sleep. Teach me the art of taking minute vacations---of slowing down to look at a flower, to chat with a friend, to pat a dog, to read a few lines from a good book."

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Thanks Georgia, you are so wonderfully encouraging. I know you understand. I know my ex and my oldest put the 21 year old in the middle all the time. It is sad really, but he does choose to be there and be played.
I am trying so hard to just trust God plan for my life and be here (really present) for my younger three. They deserve it. The others don't deserve my attention when all they do behind my back is badmouth me.
It is time for the younger ones to truly have me and not all this turmoil and chaos. I feel so badly that I haven't stood up stronger in the face of all this. My husband is a good man but so passive! Even his counselor told him that. That isn't helping me that he doesn't stand up for me. So I am very alone in this.
Thanks again for being there for me and supporting me through this.
Hugs, Cathy

Oh Cathy I feel your pain. This week marks my sons 4th wedding anniversary so it has been 4 years since I have seen him or since we have had a decent conversation. I feel your pain and I agree it is no ones business but your own. As for the 21 year old - I wonder how much he gets given to play you. Money or gifts or such.........
My prayers are going out to you during this very tough week. Love you and sending you big hugs.

I agree Dee. Trying so hard to finally take care of me.

I am so miffed today. My 21 year old thinks he is "secretly" seeing his father and yet I know every time he sees him. How? Because this son is then more sarcastic and bold and he already has a way with words. Anyway my oldest is getting married next week. My 21 year old asked if I was going (right after seeing his father, so we know who REALLY wants to know). I told him I didn't want him in the middle of this and it was my decision to go or not, AND if my oldest wanted to know, then he should ask. Well as you can imagine the conversation didn't end well (as usual) as I said we are done when he wouldn't listen.
His comments..."you are so self-centered, self-righteous, always think you are right" etc. Do any of you hear that from me? Do you think I am self centered? My ex is truly a narcissist and I believe my 21 year old is no different. They do things to others, but then blame them for what THEY are doing. ARGH!!!
I am so tired of all of this!
Even when I try to keep peace, yet stand up for myself it never works!
Okay, done with my rant! Sorry!
Hugs and hope all are doing well.

Cathy and Dee we all have so much to deal with. These last few months have seen my health downturn enough for me to get some help. I have developed anaemia with very low iron count. So now iron tablets. Plus the naturopath I am seeing says I have gut issues. All stress related.
Dee please look after your health as well as everyone else's.

I want us all to be healthy. Praying for it to be so.

Becky, glad your area got some much needed rain.

Vicky, YEAH on hearing about the job!!! So sorry your ds is having a hard time with school. I do wish these schools would cut the kids that they know are dealing with issues some slack. It seems like they just don't care or want to deal with them anymore. Which is sad. HUGS!

Georgia, how are you doing? Not sure if you know this...your Lowe's is a clothing store and the Lowe's here in the U.S. is a big box hardware/lumber yard type establishment. I saw a post of yours on FB and it hit me how different the stores were, but yet had the same name. Whenever you talked about working there, I thought you were dealing with housewares (appliances and such), not realizing it was clothing. LOL!!

Cathy, so sorry to hear about Kelsa's coach. I would wait til you make sure of the circumstances before telling her as well. HUGS!

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. trying to get back on track and stay there. took so many detours the last several months/years and it's affecting my health.

Thanks Georgia and Becky...Love ya.

Becky, I know you went through this recently and it just takes a chunk out of your heart. My girl has so many other issues she is dealing with right now, that this just puts her over.

I am so thankful for all of you and your support. I couldn't do this without you.

Love and hugs and prayers to all! Cathy

So sorry for Kelsa's trainer. Praying for the best solution.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

So glad you were able to get your hair cut Georgia. That does feel good.

Vicki, congrats on the job! WooHoo!! I hope you are able to figure out a good placement for your son. That is just so hard.

Becky, so glad you are getting some rain.

Very busy these days with school, Dr. appts etc. Feeling very sad about Kelsa's horseback trainer. She hasn't ridden since last December as he has cancer. She is very sad and not handling this well (don't blame her) I have heard unofficially that he may be seeking hospice soon. I really can't believe this. My poor girl. I haven't told her yet as it is going to be so hard for her. And I want to make sure I hear from credible sources first.

Hope you are all well. Hugs, Cathy

Got the call yesterday! I start work on Monday! Thank goodness.

Still having problems with Bryan's school. He went back yesterday and got suspended AGAIN! Got stressed out and frustrated and told a gym teacher he was gonna kill her later. Of course didn't mean it but of course in a public school that cannot be tolerated. So he is suspended again. Which the timing is bad because now I'm back to work. We are working it out though. Fingers crossed things will get better for him at school.

Ooh, haircuts - nice! I will get mine cut sometime before the holidays. I usually have the back trimmed twice a year, but it has not needed shaping since last November - and I am growing it out to donate again. My niece cuts my bangs every 5-6 weeks (which is very soon).

Vicky, sending prayers that your job starts very soon.

Hi and hugs to all!

We got a surprise thunderstorm yesterday - the clouds raced over the mountains unexpectedly and drenched my area (but nowhere else). It was awesome! Today's rain has not appeared, but it finally cooled off this evening - it was 105 earlier but was under 90 before dinner, which was much earlier than the last several days. :) The fire is 95% contained - the rain helped.

Georgia, enjoy getting your haircut. I always feel lighter once I get mine cut.

Vicky, sorry the job situation is causing you stress. Can't imagine why the fingerprinting/background checks are taking so long. Hoping it all comes together quickly for you. HUGS!

Becky, Cathy, Tina, Ari, Jennifer, Andi, Amanda, do hope all is well.

Everyone Else, how are things? Hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. looking forward to just chilling with family today and getting that much needed haircut.

Hello all.

Still not working here and getting very discouraged that I made a huge mistake taking this job. Running out of money and getting scared. Still taking one day at a time.

Bryan has been getting a little better. Got a little upset with my yesterday and I took a different approach handling it and we got through it.

Just wish I could get the call to get this job started I would be less stressed.

Becky, here's hoping the rain did come and helped with the fires. Hope your teaching went well.

Georgia, we have storms like yours as well. A sprinkle for us and a downpour for others. In fact, it's raining right now.

Everyone Else, do hope all is well.

me, hanging in there. work is going well. had two days of helping rearrange shelves and products along with packing things out in the pharmacy area. tomorrow is my day off and then two days/nights working in the pharmacy. hoping to get my hair cut tomorrow it sorely needs it...

That's our hope, Georgia. The fire authority hopes to have 100% containment tonight, but that does not mean the fire is out. I hope this hurricane remnant does not skirt around us like the last one did - super soaked just south and east of us, but we literally got maybe 20 sprinkles.

Hugs to all! Sending wishes for new jobs, continued happiness in current ones, happy and healthy kids, etc.

Exactly. And I think we are getting better with that. While its not perfect I think that since we are both starting to move on (he has someone he is seeing now too) that constant tension of him wanting me back and me not is not there. We've been much more civil to each other. So hopefully its a new life for both of us. One day at a time.

Well it looks like I still have this week and next week off. They are still waiting on my fingerprints. It really sucks but I look at it this way. There are people out there with NO JOB. Nothing at all. Yes its gonna make things tight for me but I will do my best. I am expecting my 401K money to come in and that will help as long as it comes in soon. And I will be working eventually, fingers crossed.

Things with Bryan are still touch and go but last couple of days have been better so I'll take it.

Hello everyone.

Hugs and good wishes to all. Been a busy week getting this back in order. The kids are back to school. Things have been a little better with Bryan but we still have ups and downs.

I'm still not working yet. There is a delay in my fingerprint clearance. Its stressing me out because I am not working Im making no money. luckily I have my 401k money coming to me shortly but I have to wait for it. I took the money i got from the collision on my car accident damage and used it to pay my rent. Hate being strapped for cash but dont have a choice. I keep calling repeatedly to find out what is the hold up for the job. Now Im worried I made a huge mistake.

Things with Michael and I are very very good. He is very good to me and we care so much for each other. Still taking things day at a time. We are committed to each other but not looking to so anything crazy like move in or get married or anything crazy like that. Truth be told I do not think I will ever want to get married again, and I know Michael doesn't either. So we are just in a wonderful relationship and we are happy together. I will take that.

Bryan is doing ok in school. Little frustrations here and there but not too bad so far. Going in on Monday to meet with them to talk about strategies and all be on the same page.

Becky Happy birthday to your DH and what a wonderful treat - enjoy.

Cathy these are he words I shall share with yo9u. Go to the wedding - head held up high after all you are the mother no matter what. Stay in a nice comfortable corner with no one behind you or turn sideways. As your son gets married close your eyes and remember the joyous moments of his life before he changed. Pray to God to bless them even though they treat you so badly. Ask God to surround you with guardian angels to protect your from the evil whispers and nasty people. I shall pray for you to be able to have a pleasant experience in your heart.
Say to yourself "I have been a good mother and I did the best I can - I can do no more than my best."
I will be with you in spirit.

Hugs to everyone.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Becky, Happy Birthday to your DH! And WOW! That is wonderful and you are so deserving to go to Walking with Dinosaurs! I hope you have an amazing time!

Georgia, lately I feel like I am barely keeping it all together. I just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Right now just really anxious as my son's wedding is at the end of this month. Invited, yes...welcome, sadly NO. I hurt so much over it, but am trying to just move forward and concentrate on my young ones that care and are so awesome.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hugs to all, Cathy

Flying by to send hugs to all! Have an awesome weekend!

DH's bday is tomorrow - his dad came today (will leave after breakfast in the morning), then his brother and our nieces arrive around lunch. Going to the matinee of Walking With Dinosaurs - extremely wealthy friends gave us their private box (10 seats) to see the show. The boys are so excited - they have wanted to see this show for a few years. I love that it's not costing us an arm and a leg. :)

Cathy I may balance my days but then so do you with all that you achieve.
We are masters of time ....LOL!!
I shall imagine sitting under the shady trees with a cup of tea in one hand and a piece of your banana bread in the other.

Dee thank you I hope the results are good results and not bad ones. Praying al is well with your DH.

Hugs to everyone having busy days.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Georgia, so glad your day was good. You deserve it! You seem to be very good at balancing fun and work.
We had a very busy day yesterday, with dentist appts. school work and making homemade banana bread. Our stores sell the very ripe bananas very cheap and so I use them to make my loafs. I make one for me wheat free and one for the rest for the rest. Works out great and so easy! YUM!
Hope everyone is doing well.

Hugs, Cathy

Yes so do I Cathy but we shall have to wait until next week to find out. Not sleeping well again but such is life these days.

Hugs to all - have to leave early for work this morning as I have to detour to another store to pick up a delivery that was missed.
Until later bye for now.

I noticed things on my mothers skin a couple of years ago and I said to her you need to get thee checked. No I am fine she says. Now the doctor has ordered her to go as they look suspicious.

Take care and have a great evening.

Thanks, Georgia. And thanks for the comments on my Sparkpage pix, too. :) Can you tell I am crazy about my boys?

I hope all goes well at your mum's check-up. Important to keep up on our skin. My father has had so many skin cancers removed - ugh. We are fair Irish people living in sunny CA.

Day off today to take mum to the specialist for a skin check.

Hugs to all.

Wishing everyone a terrific Tuesday!

I posted a blog with a couple pix of the back yard. The shadows make it hard to get a good picture, but hopefully you can get the idea of what we did.

I teach tonight, but I am getting things done at home. Today, the boys and I "shopped at home" for school supplies. I have a list ready for Office Max and will add to it after their first day of school, which is Thursday. They will be in 7th and 10th grades. Yikes! We also are watching DH's business partner's son, who is 7 - the guys have a meeting near here and the partner's nanny flaked out on them (decided she doesn't want to take him around, just hang in her room at their house) so he could not rely on her to take K to school and pick him up afterwards. Therefore, he took K out of school for the day. (They live near San Diego, while we are halfway to Los Angeles.) While I like K and he is pretty easy to care for, his parents need to arrange other child are for him ASAP so that he doesn't miss school (plus my sons won't be home anymore and my schedule gets crazier, so I won't be available). Sorry to gripe, but they knew she was flaking over the summer, K has been in school about 3 weeks, and yet they have made no other arrangements but knew meetings in our area were coming up. Grrr! Ok, enough ranting. :)

Love the September title. I shall try to sync all of the listed too.

Becky I bet it looks fabulous and look forward to the photos.


Why is it that the best sleep comes just before the alarm goes off???

Love the theme, Cathy! I want to synch up my crazy schedule with workout time. I will learn to schedule that time in (not just when someone else is involved, like my walking buddy) and honor it.

Well, the back yard will be done today - not everything we have planned (no time or money for that at the moment) but all needed for the inspection by the water district, which is this Thursday. Over the last 4 days, we have moved 2 tons of rocks, 1 ton of sand, and at least 50 bags of bark from the driveway in the front of the house to the back yard. The boys and I have worked at least 2 hours each day (morning and/or night when it wasn't too hot). It looks amazing! I will share pictures soon.

Hi Wonderful Friends,

Okay, so you are wondering about the title. When I thought for a bit about the best focus for this month, I went through the typical, Step, then Spectacular, even Spend Time. But then the word "sync" came to mind.
When we are in "sync" we are connecting completely to something. And like anything in life, it takes time to get that sync to work fully and completely, but finally we get it. And when we get it, it feels right and other things in our lives seem to sync as well.

So what are you wanting to get "in sync" with this month? Would it be healthy eating, exercise, schedules or something else?

For me, its all of the above...one step at a time. But I am going to focus on getting "in sync" with my life and do my best to stay clear of the unhealthy people around me.

It's going to be a good month...with all of you!

Hugs, Cathy
