Good morning, ladies! I am hoping everyone is enjoying their 3-Day holiday weekend. It's been a very busy week and I am finally able to relax. I have been in pursuit of looking for a mobile home to purchase and keeping up with my beginning-of-the-school-year IEP's on behalf of special need's children and their parents. On Tuesday, I will be filling out the necessary paperwork to begin my process on the home that has all the features I have been looking for in the past couple of months.

I will be starting a new forum for our September chats. I am so PROUD of the achievements you all have made in the month of August! Continue in your pursuit of September's successes. I am looking forward to "seeing" you in our September chat's forum. Have a wonderful and safe holiday.

My house is a wreck. It was too hot outside to think about doing anything, and apparently that mood spilled over into the house. Whew. I will have to do some serious cleaning tomorrow after church.

Supposed to only get to 82 tomorrow with a 30% chance of rain/storms.

I walked DJ this morning before the heat set in---or maybe he walked me...LOL

Took a long nap this afternoon---been lazy/tired today.

Sunday school, church, and Bible study tomorrow.

I have been trying to get my husband to go to a marriage retreat or enrichment. He hasn't comitted to those--but he did go to a Seminar with me at our church. It was a Fireproof your marriage one. We were so happy for months after that. Hmm, we might need to go to another for that Spark.

I have certainly eaten more than my fair share of watermelon this summer. It is so yummy. I prefer mine without salt. I do like salt on my tomatoes. I haven't had many tomatoes. We didn't grow any this year since my husband's health isn't as good as it used to be and my knees bother me too bad to try and plant anything. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.

Finakeller - Hey, homegrown watermelon is as good as candy! It's really good if you put a tiny bit of salt on it too. Tomatoes? I pop those little grape tomatoes like candy all the time. Keep up the good work in avoiding those trigger foods. I wish those around you were more supportive in their actions. Keep your chin up, you are doing great!

All - Here in STL I heard it's supposed to rain/thunderstorm on Sunday, making way for 75 degrees on Mon/Tues/Wed. Yay!

It seems like it is always hot lately. Someone told me it is supposed to cool down soon. I hope they are right. We could use some cooler temperatures around here.

Good for you being able to say no to all the bad foods you are surrounded by. As you saw it paid off. Keep up the great work. It is hot here today too.

Hi Everyone! Well, the rain didn't last here. Before I knew it, it was gone. Then it got scorching hot-again!
Yesterday I had to take my sister to the doctor so they could check her nose. I got on the scale and found that I have lost 6 pounds while I have been here.
It couldn't be because all they eat here are fried foods and I refuse to do eat it, could it??? I have not been able to eat a whole lot in the last two weeks.
With just having gastric bypass 3 months ago, this has been a real test for me. They have, candy, and chips sitting everywhere. As I sit here writing this, my sister has a box of Milk Duds sitting on the table beside me. But I feel that I have done really well. I have just looked the other way when they put all these bad foods on the table.
The only good food in the house is the homegrown watermelon and tomatoes.
Well, I guess I have complained enough for one day. Hope you all have a great day. Thanks for listening!

It is good to have you back Laura. I figured you were probably busy with school starting. I thought it was going to rain today but it didn't rain here. My hubby had to go to the doctor in Lee's Summit and it was raining there. I hope all of you are doing great. Whenever I am somewhere else I usually can't wait to get back home either except for the last time we went to Wichita. It was the first time my husband and I were away from the kids in a long time. We felt like newlyweds. We were at a marriage enrichment seminar.

Tricia, I live in Raymore, Mo and it has definitely been a hot summer. We live in the city. Raymore is a suburb of Kansas City. I went to Church today too Elsie. I am a cat lover but I do love dogs too. We have 3 cats, a Bichon Frize and a toad. We also have 5 kids and 1 grown son living here so we are a busy household. It is never a dull moment. I was feeling tired today so I laid down with the two little ones who are 1 and 3 and we all took a nap together. My dear husband napped in the living room.

This day started cool and very quickly turned hot.

I had an awesome day at church and will be leaving in about 30 minutes for Bible study.

Take care...Elsie

Hey SOXYINMO- I have had two Border Collies and I love them! Both of mine have been very smart. This one, Socks, knows so many words. When I fell and hurt my back really bad and right after my surgery, if I needed my husband and he was in the other room. All I had to do was tell Socks to go get dad, and she would go to whatever room he was in and bark at him. Then she would come towards me. If he didn't pay attention to her, she would jump on him. If she wants me to play and knows that my back is hurting, she will put the toy up in my lap so I don't have to bend over. She knows who different people are too.
Our dog has never had a leash on. I don't know what she would do with one on. She stays right with us whenever we go somewhere. Socks grew up on an 18-wheeler, so she knows all about vehicles and strange people. It is amazing what animals can learn.
We have owned Beagles, Blue Heelers and a Lahsa Apso. I loved all of them.

Hey Finakeller, I have a Border Collie, too. Aren't they wonderful?

Corkysmom, our Beagle escaped from his harness in the park one time and led us a merry chase through the park and down (but luckily not across!) the river! We had to get him a special harness, and he's been good ever since, but they are slippery pups, aren't they?

I was just curious where in missouri you live? The heat this summer has been ridiculous and all these storms have been bad. I live on top of a hill with no trees around us yet because we just built our house last september. No shade ran our electric bill up like crazy. Anyway looking forward to jeans and sweatshirt weather soon. Good luck on your goals

Good morning all!!
Well, I am not sure about the weather at home, but here in Wichita we are still hovering over 100 every day!
With my sister just getting out of the hospital and my brother-in-law having to work, I got to go out and clean their pool yesterday. Man, it was one hot puppy out there. But the job is done now and they don't have to worry about it for a while.
I hope all of you have a great weekend. Try to stay cool!!

I would love to live in a rural area where I could see all kinds of wildlife. We do get to see some since we are near a lot of rural areas. It is good to have another member to chat with. I'm glad the shots are working Elsie. Some days I think I need shots. Our dog is a runner too Monika. When she hits the street she is gone in no time. I don't try to chase her because of my knees. I leave that to the kids. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

Can you believe we were down in the 60s during the night. I should have taken DJ for a walk this morning but I got on the lawn mower instead.

Yes, I can feel the difference since I began taking the B 12 injections. I am getting up and doing things, going out walking, mowing, and just getting out which I didn't have the energy or the motivation to do before.

After my blood is drawn on Monday, I am going to an orientation at the hospital to do some volunteering. Before the injections I wouldn't even have thought about doing this.

Weight wise, I didn't fare so well at TOPS yesterday---up a pound however this morning when I measured--I was down an inch from my hips and waist---yay for me!!!!

Youngest granddaughter's sweet 16 birthday party is tomorrow evening. Her actual birthday is Aug. 30.

Thanks Corkythemom!!
I love living out here. We have deer in our back pasture alot. I love taking photos of them. We had a momma fox and her kits here one time in the winter. I loved watching them out on the pond ice! We other wildlife here and there too. I don't know what I would ever do if I couldn't live in the country. I don't know how people can take the noise of town life! But then, city folks probably would have a hard time of the peace and quiet of the country.
Have a great day everyone!!

WooHoo, what a beautiful Friday morning to wake up to. It felt so good to take my morning walk and it being cooler than yesterday. Though, it continues to warm up in the afternoons, I am now able to enjoy my morning hours. It gives me a chance to enjoy the outdoors without the heat taking its toll on me. I do hope in September we begin feeling the cooler temperatures more frequently.


FINAKELLER, Welcome aboard. I am so glad you visited us in our chats. What I would give to live in the country. I miss the beauty of nature. So much has been built in our area the past 10 years that it's become crowded, however I promised my sons I would not move out of the area because their school system is wonderful for one of my special need's son.

Elsie, thank you so much for your suggestion. I am going to check it out. When it's not so hot and humid, I take my beagle to the dog park and let her run without her harness. I wish I could take her out in my backyard without her leash, however she escaped from her harness one time and it took my sons a while to chase her down. There was no way I could keep up with her. I've thought of putting her on a line, however, I'm scared she will either pull it out of the ground or escape from her harness again. For a beagle, she has the strength of a brute. (LOL). Will there be a time that you will be able to replace the B12 injections for the oral supplements? Are you noticing a difference since beginning your injections? I am taking a weekly Vitamin D oral supplement and it took a month for me to notice any changes in my energy level. Unfortunately, the hot weather aggravates my energy level. I never had a problem until I ended up in the menopausal years. I feel like I'm living in a different body. (LOL) I'm wishing you the best on Monday that your B12 level is in the normal range. I'm hoping your weather continues to get cooler so that you can enjoy your outdoors. It's hard being cooped up in the house day in and day out.

Sandy, Congratulations on Shilah no longer having to wear her compression glove and sock! I bet she is so excited to wear her Tinkerbell flip flops! WooHoo on her awesome progress! Does she continue to suffer physical pain from her burns? My prayers are with Shilah for her continued medical progress and that your knee becomes better than bearable.

Have a Fantastic Friday and upcoming weekend!

Good morning everyone! I have been a member of this team for a while, but just haven't had a chance to chat. I have a Border Collie, Socks. I think she takes me for more walks than I do her!! I am just glad that we live in the country and I don't have to use a leash. I have been in Wichita, Ks for the last week taking care of my sister and haven't been able to get my exercising in. It feels weird not to get up and work out.
Good Luck to all of you!!

Our dog is small. Molly is a Bichon Frize. My kids usually walk her. My knee has been bearable today. I had to take Shilah, my foster daughter to Children's Mercy to have her burns checked, We got good news. She no longer has to wear her compression glove and sock since her skin has smoothed out a lot. Now she can wear her tinkerbell flip flops. I'm glad you are both doing okay. Good luck on your test Elsie. Hopefully your levels are up. I couldn't walk a dog that tried to walk me either Monika. Hopefully the leash Elsie uses would work well on your dog.

Monika--one of the best $10 I ever spent was for a pull-leash from WalMart. It goes over his head like a harness and then down under his legs. He doesn't pull at all when he has this on. I didn't like the ones that go over their nose or stretch their head back. The leash fastens on just like a harness. DJ weighs 113 pounds so this is a very good form of control. Especially since Alaskan Malamutes are bred to pull.

It is cooler here with a nice breeze. We are supposed to go down into the mid to high 60s at night this week. Perfect for having windows open.

I didn't fare well at TOPS---weight was up 1 pound. My feet are quite swollen so I think it is water/fluid weight. Next week should tell because we are supposed to have some cooler weather and I can get outside more.

I did my 8th B12 injection today so I get my level rechecked Monday.

Take care....Elsie

Good morning, ladies! After yesterday's heat, I am so grateful that the humidity will not be as intense today. When I went for my walk this morning, it was nice. It's amazing how 10 degrees can make a difference with our humidity.

Elsie, it sounds like you are feeling much better. How are you able to get your dog to walk with you? I quit walking my beagle because she is constantly wanting to run and I am unable to do so with the arthritis I suffer in my left foot. Even though she is always on a leash, she zig zags all over the place and it is her taking me for a walk. The only place I can get her to settle down is in our backyard that doesn't have a fence because we are renting our townhouse. I look forward to the day that we can open our windows again. I've had enough of this weather.

Sandy, I do feel for you about your knee. I'm sending prayers that something can be done for you to help elevate your pain. Like you, I can tolerate the pain I feel with my left foot as long as it doesn't have the sharpness added to it. Every night I still prop my left foot on a pillow to keep most of the swelling down. When the pain is too much, I take 600 mg of Ibuprofen that was prescribed for me.

Hoping that everyone has a beautiful and blessed day.

I would never try to fatten you up Elsie. I was just teasing. I shouldn't have said my knee was better. I think I jinxed it. I took Sam to his high school meet the teacher night last night and I think I overdid it. My right knee was killing me toward the end and even though I took some medicine and put some stuff on my knee before bedtime I still couldn't sleep. I kept waking up with my knee hurting. I tried to baby it today in hopes it will be better tonite. I have a Church class I teach tonite and unfortunately my classroom is downstairs. Last week it was just 1 girl and I and we held class outside but it is too hot for that tonite. I will take the steps nice and easy and maybe they won't bother me too bad. I'm glad you got your walk in early Monika. When it is really hot out that is the best way to go. .

Good morning, Sandy and Elsie! Today will be the hottest day of the year. I went for my early morning walk and plan to remain indoors the rest of the day. Elsie, so glad you are feeling better and Sandy, glad the pain is lessening in your knee. Have a wonderful day.

My knee was a lot better today Monika. Luckily it isn't bothering me much at all. I don't mind pain as long as it is bearable. I'm glad you found a church Elsie. We love ours. It is small and everyone is so friendly. The preacher is so knowledgeable when it comes to the Bible. I've never had a preacher that knows the word of God like Tom does. I seldom leave carrot cake around myself as I end up eating most of it. I like to make it for functions I go to so I can have some but hopefully a lot of it will be eaten before I get it back home. My daughter makes a lot of cakes from box mixes but most of the time they don't tempt me. I like to bake cakes from scratch. Lucky for me I don't do that often. It is a good thing for you Elsie that we don't live closer or I would be bringing my leftover carrot cake to share with you.

Elsie, I was hoping you would be feeling better from the heat exhaustion you are suffering. My prayers are with you as you build up your strength. Congratulations on joining your new church! I'm wishing you many blessings with your church community.

Sandy, my continuing thoughts and prayers are with you that your knee is much more better this week.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week.

Sandy---carrot cake is one of my favorites too. I don't keep cake around much because I tend to eat the whole thing since I am the only one here....teehee---I do love the cream cheese frosting.

We did join the church this morning. This also tired me. I am still recovering from Friday. I think I had some heat exhaustion. I took a 2 hour nap after church.

92 here still with a heat index of 98.

Hello Ladies! Elsie, I am glad you were able to have an enjoyable day in Branson. I'm hoping you recoup quickly from the heat. Sandy, I'm hoping your knee heals promptly. My thoughts are with you both. May your Sunday be filled with tranquility.

It is easy to get worn out on trips especially when the weather is hot. I'm glad you are getting some rest today. Carrot cake is my favorite cake. I try not to make one very often. They are too much temptation.

The trip to Branson yesterday was fun but very tiring for me. I have spent most of the day lying around and reading. We saw the Hughes Brothers. We had lunch before the show and after the show the bus driver and his wife treated us to carrot cake on the Landing. It was a long, fun, and tiring day. Lots of good fellowship. I did get overheated because of not drinking enough water.

This morning I sawed 2 branches from a tree, hung out a load of laundry, and walked with 2 of my daughters. We all took our dogs. I wasn't sure how DJ would do with 2 unfamiliar small dogs. All the dogs did fine.

Had to finally turn the AC back on and close all the windows as it is 92 with a heat index of 103.

I'm hoping everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. Sandy, what makes my grandson so precious is that he was born prematurely at a low birth-weight and has not had any complications that most preemies do. He has been striving forward since the time of his birth. He is such a happy baby and it's so much fun watching him explore his environment. I am so blessed to be his grandma. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time at the show with Irene and that you both made it home safely before the storms erupted. I woke up to storms early this morning. The storms have subsided, but we're expected to have more. Too bad the storms haven't cooled off our temperatures. It's very humid here.

Have a wonderful weekend! Will check in tomorrow.

I'm sure you enjoyed time with your grandson Monika. I love babies. They are so precious. Our play was great and we always enjoy one another's company. Luckily it ended fairly early and we were able to get home before the storms hit.

Good morning, ladies. This week has been busy with me watching my 7-month old grandson at my daughter's house for a couple of days, allowing her time to run errands without worrying about the baby. Yesterday, we spent the day going to different baby resale shops. I had a blast finding things for my grandson.

Sandy, is your knee starting to get better? My sons went to school this week. They seem to like the teachers. How are you kids doing with their new teachers? I hope you and Irene have a wonderful time watching Xanadu and spending quality time with one another. What a great way to start your weekend.

Elsie, I hope the heat doesn't zap your energy. When are you taking the bus trip with your church group to see a show? That's a great cost for a day of fun. I hope you have a wonderful time.

Kat, love the salad idea. I'm a big eater of salads and look for new ways to add variety to them.

Gay, I agree with you. I am looking forward to the cooler months ahead. I've had enough of the high temps and humidity. Every year before my sons and I pick out our pumpkin, we take a day and ride through various country roads to see the beautiful sights of the leaves turning their fall colors.

I'm hoping that everyone has a beautiful and blessed weekend.

I liked your salad idea Crazy Kat. That is a good way to use leftovers. My adult son lives with us and he eats most of our leftovers. It was nice today in Raymore today. I don't know what the temperature got up to but it was pleasant out. I am going to Starlight Theater tonite with my Spark friend Irene to see Xanadu.

I just wanted to share a tip I read in my Women's Health magazine, without creating a new topic...Salads are a great way to use up leftovers! Take any left overs you have in the fridge and chop them up. Add on top of salad greens. Voila! Easy emoticon

I woke up with my right knee feeling a lot better but then I had to go out and get school supplies and clothes for the kids plus I had already scheduled an afternoon of beauty for Tamela and I so there went my knee. When I got home, I sat on the couch to divide up the school supplies and I had to get my husband to help me up. I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling better Elsie.

I'm sorry you had such a bad worker you gave up your license. That is too bad. My knee is still bothering me which is starting to scare me because normally it hurts one day and is better the next. I don't have health insurance so I am hoping it will get to feeling better on it's own. I hope you are okay Elsie. It was nice having cooler weather today.

God gave us a perfect day......not too hot, windy, cloudy, or rainy. I got the back, front, and small side yards mowed. Still have the big side yard, the dog pen, and weed whacking to do. I got to spend over 2 hours outside today.

I am so excited because I get to take a bus trip with the new church I am joining. And for just $21 including a show.

Good morning, ladies. I am looking forward to this week. My sons begin school on Wednesday and I will be taking some "me" time for several days after they begin. It also gives me the opportunity to do my "spring" cleaning. Most people begin their spring cleaning during the spring. I begin mine when my sons start school and donate items to nearby Resale Shops, Salvation Army and Goodwill stores. It's hard to get things done with them at home.

Elsie, hopefully with the B-12 injections working, you will get to feeling better more quickly from becoming overheated than over a month ago. Because I have a Vitamin D deficiency, my doctor prescribed a weekly dosage for me to take. After feeling energized again, I began remaining outdoors more. However, I learned from my doctor that the medicine and high humidity do not mix. Now, I use caution with the weather conditions because my body can no longer handle the humidity like it used to. When my neighbor-friends and I sit outdoors, we use a circulating fan so we no longer get heat exhaustion and still be able to enjoy the fresh air. When I take my early morning walks, I use a battery-operated, hand-held fan that cools me down when needed.

Sandy, I hope your knee get better. It's wonderful that you are fostering children. I fostered my grandson for over a year and a half. Since that year and a half, I was not allowed to make any decisions without the final approval from the case-worker that at times took months to receive. Her attitude and demeaner was of the most unprofessional and acts of intimation that another foster family and I have ever experienced. My grandson is now with his mother, however because of my horrible experiences I will no longer foster children, knowing I would have to go through the same case-worker again. It saddened me when I allowed my license to expire because of what the other foster family and I had to endure with the case-worker we could not replace. The other foster family and I tried to go over her head and it back-fired against us because we had no proof of her demeaner while she was on the telephone with us or visiting our homes for our monthly home visits. My grandson's and his half-brother's relatives on their dad's side went through the same ordeals and were too scared to speak up for fear the case-worker would take away their visiting privilieges after seeing that the foster family and I were not able to get positive results. She was careful to never display her unprofessional manner in front of the team and when the foster family and I brought up circumstances that were happening, the case-worker would manipulate her deceit during the family meetings that it was impossible to prove otherwise. The other foster family was taking care of my grandson's half-brother from my grandson's father side of the family. I do hope you never have to go through the experiences that we had to. Looking back, I wish I could have afforded cameras into my home.

Have a wonderful beginning of the new week!

We do foster Monika. Right now we have a 1 year old boy and his 3 year old sister. We normally have good workers but this one is a nightmare. I requested a clothing voucher last spring and still don't have it. We had nice weather today too Elsie. I cleaned yesterday and my right knee has been hurting all day today. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

God has gifted us with another beautifully cooler day here in Reeds. It got up to 84 with a slight breeze. Turned the AC on for approximately 5 minutes after I got home from church to get the stuffiness out of the house as there wasn't any breeze at that time. Then a nice breeze came up so I opened doors and windows and turned the AC off,,,,,,It's wonderful...

I got overheated yesterday and the tiredness set in again...still feeling a little tired today. Otherwise am having a good day.

Praise the Lord for spell check........LOL.....lately me speeeellin has ben teribble

Elsie, it is so great to hear how well you are feeling! Congratulations on not only your weight loss, but shedding an inch from your size! You Go Girl!! I am so happy that your B-12 shots are working and the weather is cooperating so you can enjoy the outdoors! WooHoo! With all your energy, if you get bored you are always welcomed to come to my house and cook those good homemade meals. (LOL)

Sandy, when you mentioned attending the foster & adopt pot luck and swim, do you foster children? If so, how many? How has your experiences been with the system? I hope it is much better than what another couple and I have had to go through with the same case worker.

I am now counting down the days to school starting. I tease my sons about their vacation ending and mine will be starting. Have a great day enjoying the beautiful weather. My sons and I are headed outdoors again.

I smile a lot so people must really wonder what I am up to (he, he). We are having a beautiful day here today but I'm inside cleaning. I'm getting ready to go grocery shopping. I hope you enjoy your cantaloupe Elsie, it sounds good.

It's a beautiful day here in Reeds. We got more rain during the night. It is so good to see some green peeking through.

Feeling good again today---got the dishes in the dishwasher, did 3 loads of laundry---hung 2 of them out. Getting ready to put some veggie beef soup in the freezer as I made way too much of it...lol

Maria (daughter) is bringing me some fresh cantaloupe from her garden...woohoo!!!

Smile it makes people wonder what you are up to!!!!..hehehe....Elsie

I'm glad you had a day to yourself Monika. I don't know if that would work for Tamela or not but it is worth a try. It might work better for her 10 year old brother because he really loves his DS and would be upset if it disappeared. I'm glad you made it to the zoo. I need to take the little ones there once the bigger ones get back to school. It is so chaotic taking them all somewhere at once. They didn't do bad tonite at the foster & adopt pot luck and swim. It is good to see you feeling a lot better Elsie. I guess it doesn't really matter exactly what makes you feel better as long as you keep feeling better.

nother cool day here along with more rain---oh I do thank you oh Lord God...

Had my mammo without any problems. afterward had to do an errand in Joplin afterward.

Nothing special happening her today except I didn't get any weed whacking done due to getting the much need rain.

It is so good to be feeling so much better. I'm not sure if it is the B12 injections or the cooler temps. My daughter says it's both...LOL

I don't remember if I posted my weight being down 1.4 pounds at TOPS Thursday. Also, waist and hips measurements are down 1 inch each.

Congrats to all who are down, keep going to those who aren't. Prayers going up for all who need them.

Hugs........Elsie

We had a wonderful time at the zoo. Today, my sons went to Six-Flags with their friends. I have the house to myself.

Elsie, the injections must be working for you to be feeling better now. I am so glad for you. CONGRATULATIONS on your weight loss! I am so PROUD of you! WooHoo! I don't know what I would do without my crockpot. I use it often. I also do a lot of batch-cooking, and save the left-over portions in my freezer. That way I don't have to cook all the time.

Sandy, I can relate to the fustrations of our kids not picking up after themselves. Today, after my sons left to go to Six-Flags, I went into their rooms to get their laundry. Was I in for a surprise. My older son has a love-seat in his room and instead of picking up, he ended up throwing things behind and underneath it. Instead of me picking up his room, I took all the things he had and threw them on top of his bed. Imagine his surprise when he comes home this evening worn out from his day at Six-Flags. Rather than being able to relax, he will be spending a lot of time putting things away without me having to say a word. I also have been known to take their things that are not picked up and hide them down in my basement until I feel they are responsible to take care of their items. Usually, it is their favorite things they leave all over the bedrooms. Have you ever tried that with your daughter? It may work for you. It has for me.

Have a wonderful Friday! I'm going to enjoy the peace and quiet while my sons are gone.

I didn't get any weed whacking done yesterday and probably won't do any today due to the humidity. I did walk DJ twice around the property. Between my daughter and I we have 5 acres that I walk the perimeter of.

I did a lot of cooking and baking yesterday because it was so cool and nice. I made a ground turkey meatloaf, baked a sweet potato, and made broccoli and cauliflower in the oven. I put a round steak in the crock-pot and let it cook all day and night then added mushroom and frozen mixed veggies so now I have a big pot of veggie soup for the week end.

Good news---weight is down 1.4 pounds at TOPS weigh in this morning.

Still feeling good inspite of the increase in heat and humidity.

I'm glad to hear you are feeling better Elsie. I hope you made it to the zoo Monika. I am so worn out. I spent about 3 hours cleaning up my daughter's pig sty of a room and she wouldn't help so I told her I was taking her next 5 weeks allowance which amounts to $25 for cleaning her room. I'm hoping that will help her to start keeping it clean. I always end up cleaning it and I have had enough. I also washed and put away 4 loads of clothes.

This weather is wonderful. Today, it's only getting in the low 80's. My sons and I are picking up their schedules from school today. They are excited to see their friends again. Hopefully, if it doesn't rain, we'll be visiting the zoo.

Have a wonderful day enjoying this weather!

Sure is good to be feeling so much better now.

Was on the go all day yesterday. I got tired but it was a good tired not the fatigue and worn out feeling like earlier.

Nice and cool again this morning with sprinkles. I am going to get out and do some week whacking this morning unless rained out.....hehehe.

Weigh in tomorrow at TOPS.

I don't understand why the schools start so early either. It is getting ridiculous. Soon they will have them starting in July. I took the kids to the dentist and then I had laundry and housework to do.

I am enjoying this weather. I am so grateful we are getting relief from the heat. During the evening, I enjoy sitting outdoors with my neighbor-friends and watching the kids play while the grown-ups talk. We don't come in until late at night. Elsie, I'm so glad you felt good and was able to enjoy the outdoors. Sandy, continue enjoying the weather. Tomorrow, my sons will be going to their schools and picking up their schedules. Next week they begin school. It seems like each year, they begin school earlier than the year before. I never could understand why the schools don't start until after the Labor weekend like it used to.

Have a wonderful day!

WE GOT SOME RAIN!!! DID YOU KNOW THAT WE GOT SOME RAIN??? Plus it is thunder grumbling right now. It rained during the night for about 10 minutes---by the time I got up and closed the windows it had stopped. Rained again about 2 PM and the thunder is still grumbling. It looks like it's getting ready to pour down again.

No high temps today---predicted was 100. Right now it's 77--isn't that wonderful?

What a day---I feel good and God has blessed us with rain and lower temps.

I was able to get the back mowed---outside for 3 hours and I took DJ for a walk.

Blessings...Elsie

Sandy, I am so glad you had a wonderful time! Sure have missed you. Elsie, I am loving this weather. Today I woke up to the 70's and a cloudy day. It is only going to get to the high 80's this week. It feels good to have some relief from the heat. I am looking forward to being outdoors this week.

Have a magnificient Monday!

I am back. The day we went to Silver Dollar City it was 115 degrees. We only stayed 3 hours. We went to the water park the next day. It was hot but the water kept us comfortable. Our water park in Kansas City is a lot bigger but we still had a good time. We went to a Royals game today. It was a good game and the Royals were ahead and then it started pouring down rain so we left early. Friday night we got free tickets to see the play Mamma Mia for free. Tamela and I went. We went to the Deanna Rose Farmstead yesterday. We are going to an indoor water park tomorrow. I need to get to the movies. Maybe I need to plan a day of it like you Monika. Since we got back to Raymore the weather is not as hot as it was before we left.

I've been busy the last couple of days. On Friday, my sons and I spent the whole day watching (3) consecutive movies at the theater. We enjoyed watching "Rise of the Planet of the Apes", "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Zookeeper." Because we have never done that before, I was concerned that my sons and I would eventually get bored being in a theater all day, but we had the time of our lives. In between the movies, we had 30 minutes for us to play video games. Of course they won because I never play video games at home. (LOL) It was the first time I've been at a theater in over 20 years. We always rent dvd movies for the weekend. On Saturday I took some "me" time and went to a nearby town, Kimmswick that is popular for its antique shops. While I was gone, my sons were visiting at their friend's houses. Today, I plan to relax at home.

Despite the heat, I do hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Have a wonderful Sunday. Hugs.

I took 2 of my grandkids and bought them school shoes and supplies this morning as today is a tax free day.

Today my neice is having her birthday party and I really need to clean my house so badly. I guess I will be burning calories that way when I get home!

Hope everyone enjoyed the rain if they got some. We are suppose to get more today, but so far none. The party is outside, so I hope it waits.

The past two days were SO nice, even with the severe thunderstorms. Today the sun is out and hitting that wet ground and the humidity is climbing. I can see steam out over the river, so I'm guessing it's not going to be a very pleasant day weather-wise.

It was 117 the other day. Today we had rain, so I am hoping to get outside before it heats back up.

Monika,

I do have sinus and allergy problems and at one time was sick from Nov, till April. I was dizzy most of the time, couldn't walk much. threw up most of the food I ate. During this time I had to find a new doctor due to insurance change so took me quite a while to get established with this doctor. He put me on some meds that keeps my sinuses in check, got me well, and has kept me well for 3 years now. I still take the meds every day so when I do get sinus problems they aren't very severe.

I took my 5th B 12 injection this morning, after 3 more the levels will be rechecked. I still tire easily but seem to recover quicker. Also, I don't get tired until later in the day.

How are you doing?

I did get out to mow the dog pen today and was able to have my windows open until about 4 PM. It was so nice. We only got up to 98 today...LOL

Hi Elsie! I was able to enjoy the outdoors today. The humidity wasn't so bad. Rode my bike and walked my 3 miles early this morning then went to Kimmswick to visit all the antique shops. How are your injections coming along? Are you finding that you are getting more energy from them or is it going to take some time to build up your system? I had my follow-up with the doctor about the dizziness. She ruled out my heart and suspects that it is a Vitamin-D defenciency even though I have been taking the medicine on a weekly basis for months. She took some lab work and will get back with me on Monday. Because we both live in Missouri, do you ever suffer from sinus headaches that are common in our state?

I'm hoping the weather turns out cooler for you. Have a wonderful evening.

Joplin/Carthage set records 2 days in a row. Supposed to be up to 107 today.

I am taking 2 grandkids school shoe shopping due to it being tax free weekend. Also, I will be buying some school supplies.

I did some weed whacking early this morning and now am deciding whether or not to take a nap. I've been waking up at 5:30 the past 3 mornings.

On my 3rd cup of water already.

CONGRATULATIONS on the accomplishments made in the month of July! As we look ahead into the month of August, let's remind ourselves how far we have come since starting our daily journey. TOGETHER, We Have Progressed Into A Healthier Way Of Living. We may not be where we want to be, however we certainly are not where we used to be. Despite the intensity of our weather, we continue to take each day with renewed opportunity. We have come a long way!

I'm hoping the month of August is filled with lots of continuing successes for each one of you. Have an Awesome August Day!
