I agree - I don't like or trust the man. It may be a hard 4-8 years, but I am trying to remain positive that election fears won't come to pass.

Cathy, I think a 2 month cafe is a good idea for this crazy time of year. :)

Yesterday was the 25th wedding anniversary for Ev and me. It felt so weird, because we clearly remember throwing his parents' silver anniversary party after they renewed their wedding vows at the church. Now, here we are - it feels like a blink of an eye.

Hugs to all!

Hello Ladies,

Becky, I think we are all very busy right now. It's okay. We all know that we are always here for each other whether we are on daily or weekly.

I am glad the election is over, but wow. Either candidate has major character flaws. But God is in control and I will trust him!

I am going to move our Cafe over to November and December. I think I'm a little late!

Hugs, Cathy

Happy Halloween! My kids are getting older now so Bryan didn't even wanna go out. He went to play basketball at the Y. Tryouts for the school basketball team are coming up and he wants to be ready but he's nervous.

Rianna's team won another competition and this time they won Grand Champions!!! That means they had the highest performance score of all the teams there: and there were 40 teams!!!!!! So proud!

Cathy great the weight is gone not great you were sick. Praying for you to have constant good health.

I am going to see a dietician on Saturday. Maybe she can give me a plan that suits me.

Had a nice day down at the beach yesterday. No swimming just a nice lunch and then a walk and then back home.

Wow, Becky! Caddy, 18? I can't believe that. Happy Birthday, Caddy!! Yes it is insanely busy here too.

Vicky, so glad Bryan is doing well, and you are enjoying your new job.

Dee, hugs to you my friend.

Georgia, hope you are well. We will beat this weight, yet. We will do it together no matter how long it takes.

After being sick this week after the migraine and then got a nasty cold I lost 5 pounds! I don't want to be sick again, but so glad that stubborn gain is gone! Now I have about 7 more pounds to be back to where I was. One ounce at a time!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! You deserve it.

Hugs, Cathy

Congratulations Kelsa. You have made us so proud that you did this and also pride that you gave your parents so much joy.

Cathy the headache was from the relief that everything went well with Kelsa plus the long drive home. Praying you are better.

Also praying for success for our individual visits to doctors.

Just off to work for my night shift.

Dee, I know it's hard when we are feeling down and can't quite find the trigger. You are amazing that you keep going. Sending hugs and positive thoughts to you!

Georgia, I totally hear you. I look in the mirror and am disgusted with what I see. Same with pictures. This weekend many pictures were taken at the Special Olympics and I hated what I saw in me.

But then I looked at my daughters and especially my dear Kelsa and only saw the love I have for them. They don't love me for how I look or how much I weigh. They love me for being their momma and for being the momma I am for them. That perspective changed my thinking a bit. I still have a long way to go, but we need to see ourselves not for how much we weigh or what we look like, but for the wonderful people that we are. The weight will come off...we will do this!

The Special Olympics was amazing. Kelsa's coach was so sweet and walked her through every step of the day as she is so incredibly anxious around people. Our Kelsa took a Bronze and a Gold in her two events! I will have to post some pix. I have never seen my girl smile so naturally and fully as I did when she was on the horse and when she took that Gold which was a surprise to all of us. My husband and I just cried. God is good!

Unfortunately, on the way home a migraine started. Then the nausea. And we had an hour drive. Thankfully I made it home without having to stop, but the night was the worst migraine I've ever had. I had this weird trembling that wouldn't quit and I just got sick over and over and the headache as well. Sadly, it really scared my girls and I felt so bad that I put a damper on a beautiful day. (I know, not my fault.)
It took me until today to finally feel almost okay.

Georgia, like you I am going to see a Dr. about all my issues. I will be going through some unpleasant testing due to my chronic GI issues like a colonoscopy, but I just can't live this way.

Also a Naturopath is another thing I want to check into as I know I have hormone imbalance that is playing into all this per my Dr.

We will all get through all this together!

Hugs to all, Cathy

Dee I hear you on the dumps. On Saturday when we went out to do the snake release our friend took a photo of both of us and when I saw it it sent me on a downward spiral as I finally saw how much weight I had put on.

I am going to see a dietician in November sand see what she can suggest to me. I look at that photo and cringe.

Oh I pray we could all be comfortable and healthy with our weight and our mental spirit could soar.

Thanks, everyone! Caddy & I went to see presentations at Cal Tech (California Technical Institute - where the characters on Big Bang Theory work) on Saturday, and he loved it there. So now he knows where he will get his Bachelors and where he hopes to get his PhD. :)

Wishing everyone a wonderful week! Hugs to everyone!

Guess what? It rained today! Of course it did - we were supposed to get new gutters on the house this morning. The only other rainy day in months was the day our new windows were supposed to go in. Funny how that happens. House is almost done - small things to finish up. Yay! Still might take another month at this rate, but the end is in sight.

I saw the picture on FB - Raffi is adorable! So glad you get to see him.

Hugs to all!

Caddy got a phone call last night - he was accepted into his top choice university! We are thrilled. It is where I teach, so he should be able to live at home until he feels ready to move onto campus. He will get a lot of personalized attention there - our classes are usually under 25 students - which will suit his personality better than a school where 300+ students is the norm. So proud of him!

I hope everyone is doing well.

I have been crazy busy with school and all the other life stuff. Working hard to cut out just my late night snack. I figure one thing at a time! Hope that will help me.

A very busy week ahead with another dress rehearsal for Special Olympics on Wednesday, then a full schedule on Friday. I have my yearly exam on Friday and hope to talk with the Dr. about why weight loss is hard for me and see if she has any ideas.

Thanks Cathy. I am going to have a social day today and going to the theatre to see Singing in the Rain. Long overdue for some fun.

Have a great weekend.

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.

Becky we have people here also who do not take these things seriously enough. Why put the rescuers at risk. I pray for those in the path of the storm.

Also praying for you friend to be well after all this ordeal.

Hugs to all. TGIF!

Kristien's breast cancer is a very bad form. She will definitely need a mastectomy and chemo - maybe radiation. She will have a PET scan on Monday to see if it has spread to other areas of her body - very possible due to the type (duct exploded). Thanks for any prayers, good thoughts, etc., that you can send her way.

Hurricane Matthew is scary. My sister, niece, and nephews all evacuated - they live in/near Jacksonville. Not sure what the nephew in Orlando is doing, other than hanging out with friends (according to FB pix). My SIL's parents rode out the storm in New Smyrna Beach - crazy. Ev's aunt & uncle are at their OR home right now - no word on how their Plantation, FL home came through the storm. Scary. One of my students was supposed to fly to Haiti yesterday - postponed her trip but only for a week. I think she is naive about how it will be there.

Hello Friends,

Becky, I am praying for your friend Kristien. I am so sorry that all are going through this. Hope you are doing okay. Prayers for a complete recovery for her.

Georgia, glad you are safe. We are getting a lot of rain lately but it is warm and humid for Fall. Ugh. I want cooler Fall days.

Next week Kelsa has her second dress rehearsal for Special Olympics. We got Kelsa a plaid "western shirt" in purple of course (it HAD to be purple!) and she loves it! She is very choosy. I found some sales and was able to get her boots as well that are brown and yep, you guessed it, purple! Had to mail order so I hope they fit.

Things are very busy here with school, Dr. appts weekly lately, church, etc. Jenna has been sick a lot and is now getting over Hand, Foot Mouth. Poor girl! She could hardly walk with the sores on her feet. Doing better now, thankfully.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hugs, Cathy

Just a few kilometres up the road the storm took the roof off one house and damaged more trees. It only lasted 3-4 minutes.

How is Kristien doing?

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Oh dear Becky - I shall pray for this friend of yours. Hope she makes a ful recovery. So hard for the young= ones to understand this horrid illness.

We had some amazing rain and winds last night. One of the trees across the road in the bushland toppled over.

Nothing major but still a sign of the summer to come.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Welcome back, Amanda!

Sending prayers to all who need them. Hugs all around.

Asking for prayers, too. I found out yesterday that another very dear friend (her girls are my sons' best friends from early elementary school on - in fact, her oldest is Caddy's "cosmic twin" and Aspie) has breast cancer. My boys are devastated - they still have not recovered from the loss of Joyce 2 years ago, and now another "other mother" has cancer. I have told them that most breast cancers are survivable - Joyce's cancer type was not - but it still is hard on all of us.

Vicky parrying Bryan's teeth cause no dramas and he can recover ever so quickly.

My husband's mental health is what is causing my stress eating. Hate to see him this way.

Please pray that some how he can find joy in living.

Amanda, so good to see you again!

Cathy great news about the dress rehearsal!

Georgia, yes stress eating is a problem for me at times. I try to do other thing instead of eat.

Had a very nice weekend. We're still on the mend from our colds.

Bryan is having his wisdom teeth removed on Thursday. He's nervous. Took the day off so I could be with him.

Amanda welcome back. I hope life has been treating you and the family well. We have missed you.

Dee I hope you day off was a perfect relaxed day.

Cathy - a big well done to Kelsa. Good advice on focusing just on the horse. I pray she does well.

Yesterday was a busy day - washing, then decided my poor car needed a wash (and of course today it will be raining) and then cooked and then did more housework. Endless.

I woke up this morning with the decision that I have to get more serious about the food that goes into my mouth. This stress eating has to stop. So I am praying the Good Lord can give me the strength to follow through.

Hugs to all.

Live well, laugh often, love much.

Hugs and Hellos to all,

Thanks Amanda for setting up the October Cafe! How are you?

Dee, you are you? So glad you are relaxing and have a day off!

Opportunities are awesome. If you get overwhelmed, just take it one step at a time. You'll get there eventually with great success!

Thanks for asking about Kelsa. She did make the dress rehearsal for Special Olympics-Equestrian. It was two hours long and an hour drive each way. Very well worth it. The guidelines for Special Olympics require the participant to make two training sessions or they can't compete. There are no make up sessions. So even though Kelsa didn't feel great, she rode. She and I talked about it and we both felt that it was a wonderful opportunity, but if it didn't work out, we were still so thankful that she was offered the chance. Our next practice is in a couple of weeks with the even at the end of the month...October 22, 23. She is so nervous about the crowds, but I told her just to focus on her horse.

I am doing okay. Feeling under the weather in a lot of ways, but I will keep pressing on.

Hugs to all, Cathy

time flies and we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves and connect to others who understand us. But, luckily, we can always retrace our steps---or take a new direction---and find our way home...October, with the colors of Fall, the cooler temperatures, and the enjoyment of outdoor activities and get togethers, can present us with awesome opportunities....lets all be there for one another, welcome back those who have been MIA, embrace new friends as they join our online family, and help each other reach our goals...
