Jan, I know it must be hard for you. It would certainly be hard for me too. Thankfully we are not there yet, if ever.

I laughed at the "horse feathers" comment. Haven't heard that one in a long long time. so funny

Oh dear friend, m&m's are a calling card to me too...you stopped, you didn't eat a quart of them, so to speak, so good for you.

As for the weigh in...oh well. I'm not saying that lightly either. I was thinking, man, I have to get weighed again today, how can I lose 20 #'s before then? I was thinking that this morning when I got weighed...lol

We continue on, and we learn just for a moment, how it feels to stop eating candy or whatever your binge food is.
We learn how it feels to get up and do something when we want to binge. We did not get here by accident, we ate ourselves here, sad to say. But here we are. We can either stay here or do the work and move away form always turning to food.

Nina, your message was beautiful on your blog.

Jan – it must really be tough as you say seeing dreams go by. Hopefully you can look forward to an easier life. To get to make a new place a home for yourselves. As for eating the M&M's we all need a treat now and then. It makes us feel good if only for a short time. We all do it. But we pick ourselves up, as the saying goes, and move on. There will always be another weigh in day to look forward to.

Girls, I should have said the afghan pic isn't mine- I saw it online and thought of Patty and her vibrant colors.

Oh, horse feathers! Since the three sisters will be here tomorrow I needed to make room in the family room (which is packed with things- some ours, some DHs and some for the sale). So they can get in the room, sit down a bit and such. You know I feel we need to move to the retirement apartment when it's available and heaven only knows when that will be. And I know I don't need all this stuff. But going through the saying goodbye to things that were hopes and dreams. Like a beautiful old chair my aunt gave me that the seat part fell out years ago. We drug it every place we lived here and in Portland hoping to have it fixed some day. Well, it's time to give up on that dream so I'll maybe call a place that takes antique furniture and repairs it to sell or maybe post it on Facebook sale area. Taking books out of the bookshelf that I want to keep remembering DH has his books, too. We won't be able to move the two tall bookcases in the family room- they'll stay here.

So what did I do? I poured out a bowl of M&M peanuts and ate them. I felt better for a couple of minutes and then thought "You are nuts! You have to weigh in tomorrow!"

Nina, I'm so glad you didn't have wind today. Thank you for sharing your blog. I'll go back and reread it.

Patty, I am so glad you were given options. I'm with you - why have a surgery when you'd have to turn around and have the knee replacement anyway not too far down the road. I know you've suffered and we'll all be praying it goes well. This is something I like about TOPS. Most of us are older and there's always someone there who has already gone through things like knee or hip replacement and it's a relief seeing people get through it and go on. Hooray for lunch at Culvers and an ice cream cone. emoticon

I picked the first ripe strawberry from our raised bed today! Cut it in half and Bruce and I split it.

Patty - at least now you have a goal - there is nothing worse sometimes than bing in wonder land - not know what to do.
Will start praying about the surgery. My mom had it done and she is 87 had it done about 4 years ago.

Hi Girls, Just home from the dr. Then we stopped at Culver's for an early supper.
We split a Reuban basket, and I had a water, and 4 of the fries.
We also had an ice cream cone.

Jan, what a beautiful afghan. Is that yours? Oh my the colors are awesome...Yes, that would be terrible if someone told me I couldn't buy more yarn...

Iris, so good to see you here again, and for the lovely picture of Sunny Mae. She is almost like "ours" in the group, cause we have been along for the ride with you on her birth and life.

Praying for her.

Nina, going over to check on your blog. They are always so interesting. Yay for no wind.

Dr. gave me a couple of options.
1. another shot, but he said if the first one didn't help, the second one probably wouldn't either.
2. He said according to my ex-ray, when I bent my knee so far, it messed up the arthritis. He could go in and scrape (yikes) all that arthritis out of there, but that usually starts it up at a faster rate, and I would need knee replacement in a year or two.
3. knee replacement

We discussed it, and went with #3, the replacement. I don't want a surgery now and then a more difficult one in a year or 2, so do it now.

We discussed my weight, said it was fine, and the cancer, he was going to check more on the type of cancer I have to make sure I could have the surgery.

If I can, then we will have it in August.
Need to wait 3 months since the shot I had in my knee.

Good Afternoon Ladies

Not a windy day today. YAAAA – got my walk in today.

Well I really have not done much. I did finally get a post done for nanasknoll.blogspot.com today. It was something I have been meaning to do for awhile.

I did two loads of laundry and will need to fold it tomorrow morning.

I also plan to make up my taco spices and my fajita spices to have them ready when I make them.

Supper will be grilled steak, grilled sweet and Irish potatoes with onions, peas, and a salad.

Still avoiding the scales. I just have not been listing everything. I need to get back to it. At least I more or less stay about the same weight. I am trying to eat healthy things.

Patty – I got such a kick out of the picture. Hope the doctor gives you some kind of news as to what they can do for your knee. Also hope your DH is doing ok with his meds. You do not need anymore stress. Prayers.

Karen – those tornado's sure are scary. So glad you and your family are all safe. I need to be thankful I just have high winds.

Glenna – hi – I bet you are glad for no storms.

Jan – I am sure you will be glad when the garage sale is over. Have fun with friends coming to help. So glad you were able to help you DH out. That afghan sure is pretty in the picture.

Iris – prayers for you and Sunny. Hopefully they will know what it is and be able to treat it.

Nina

Patty, That is a very sad picture indeed! emoticon We need a perk! Is there even such a thing as too much yarn?!


Iris, No fun when a doctor forgets to order things. In my doctor's office the info goes to the nurse who talks to doc and then is supposed to order things. The "new" one (she's been there about a year now) forgets or puts off. I hope all goes well with your order. What a beautiful picture of Sunny. I'm sorry to hear she has health issues right now. Praying for her.

I'm doing Monday things on Tuesday. It's going to be one of those weeks. In the middle of it I asked DH to reschedule an appointment he had to cancel and to request one for his annual physical which should have happened in February. He forgot his user name and passwords for the VA so he spent time on the phone and then I worked it out where I could access his account online. That will save stress and fuss with the long waits on the phone to talk to someone. Still don't have appointments.

Hello, it’s been a busy morning here. Taking care of cats, trying to get in touch with dr. Who forgot to renew my standing order for my INR test. I don’t want to go to the lab like I did Friday to be told no I can’t have it your dr. Didn’t renew.
Can’t remember too much of what any of you messaged so please forgive me. Jan I love the pretty picture.
Someone asked how Sunny is doing, she is a beautiful little girl, who is having some health issues right now. Her hair is coming out in clumps and her blood platelets are very high. Today she has two dr. Appointments . I am concerned of course. A Prayer or two would be appreciated.
Patty I am sorry you are having trouble with your knees. Hope your dr. will be able to help.
Karen I think it was you , that said a tornado had hit your town. Thank goodness you and family are okay. Prayers for those who weren’t so fortunate.Glenna how are you doing? It’s nice to be back and hear what’s going on.with all of you.

Sunny

Jan, can you use your blender to grind the beans?

Karen, I wondered if you were in the path of the tornado.
Glad you and yours are safe.

Glenna, strange spring weather indeed.

Iris hope to "see" you on here today.
Nina, what are you up to today?

Good morning Patty, Karen, Glenna & girls,

Patty, I'm so glad you will be seeing a doctor for your knee today. You've suffered with that for quite awhile now.

Karen, Praying for those in your town who were effected by the tornado. I'm glad you and your family are safe.

Glenna, This is some wild spring weather- never quite know what to expect.

I had a horrible, scary dream last night. It seemed so real it woke me up.

Today I'm preparing for some friends who will come over tomorrow afternoon to help me price things for a garage sale. I need to go get some of those round sticky dots for prices to put on things.

Right now I'm going to see if my coffee grinder works. If it doesn't I have some regular ground coffee that is okay in a pinch.

Karen, I am so sorry about the tornado. I am thankful that you and your family are ok. Those storms can be so destructive.

Good morning Jan, Iris, and Nina. How are you all doing today?
