Yep you sound sorta like a commercial! emoticon

Tomatoes and squash do sound good together.

Cielito has decided that Mercy is not so scary now that she doesn't smell strangely scented anymore!

Hi team. Back from my aunts for a much needed break. Have mom here for several days- goes home tomorrow. Canned tom/summer squash mixture today. That feels good. Didn't have enough toms so decided to find a way to fill those jars.

We bought a new sleep number bed. I had an OLD Select Comfort (old name, same type mattress) which still worked but was leaking, etc. Can't wait to get the new one. It will have a nice comfy pillow top, the old one was hard, (no pillow top) but it SURE DID WORK. I can't sleep on even a good brand name mattress. After less than a year I hurt SO BAD I couldn't stand it. I LOVE these beds! (Do I sound like a commercial?)

Hmmm, I am not getting notices in my email about answers to message boards, so I am going from team to team trying to see what is the latest being said. This was semi-hidden since it does have a sticky on it.

Today Cielito had a bath and then my little Yorkie had a bath. Cielito growled and snapped at her, so I am thinking she doesn't smell right to him. I will have to watch him to make sure he doesn't hurt her since she is so much smaller than he is!

Hi Everyone, sorry I have been mia lately, there just seems to be so much to do that I haven't been sparking much either. I miss the chit chat too. I haven't been tracking food either and exercise has taken a back seat for housework. Oh well. It's gotta get done somehow. I am pretty well caught up except for going through my closet and getting a goodwill bag going. I am not looking forward to dooing it either.
I am wondering how you all are doing. I see the last post was a while back. Hoping all is well with everyone. I do see lots of new chats have been started though. I will have to play catchup to see what all is doing these days.
Talk to you all later.

Thanks Carol. She is gobbling the soaked dry food down - she lost half a pound while we were gone for two weeks. Both dogs stayed with my daughter but only Creamy lost weight. Her teeth were definitely causing her trouble. We're going to wait a few months and then have the other teeth pulled. It's good to talk to someone who's been through it.

Oh, I'm so glad I mentioned it even tho I didn't know yours was as bad off as mine! Too bad you didn't just have them all pulled had you known, it would have saved another dose of anesthia. (Spelling?) Yes, they can eat hard food- I find it amazing. I started her off with soaking her food until she was healed. Thought I would continue until I realized I wasn't doing her any favors by not letting it "toughen up"... she had troubles then with the hard treats while the others "scarfed" them up. She now can eat those just fine, a bit slower, but that's to the good. She enjoys longer! As I say, the only things she can't really deal with, but gives a good try at are the rawhide type things. She's 9 yrs. old and now we call her "Toothless Granny"!

Thanks - she did fine with the tumor removal but did lose more teeth. I didn't realize she'd still be able to eat hard food without her teeth. She has a few teeth left but the vet did say they would have to come out at some point. I'll pass on what you said to my husband. It's interesting that our other chi - same diet - has no teeth problems. The two dogs are even cousins, so I don't know how much genetics plays a role.

Hope it went well at the vet's and you have good news about the tumor. I had to have my Snuggles teeth all pulled - I'd have her teeth cleaned and within 3-4 months they'd need it again. My vet suggested we pull them and she's done just fine without them. Much better for her too than the infection-y type thing with bad teeth. So glad I had it done. She eats hard food just fine, only trouble is with a chew bone. She gives it a good try tho! LOL

Hope you don't have to go that route with yours, but just in case, when the time comes, it's really not as bad as you'd think!

I just dropped my oldest chihuahua, Creamy, off with the vet. She has a small tumor on her leg (benign we hope!) that is being removed. They're also going to clean her teeth - she has real trouble with them. I'm anxious about the anesthetic but trust she'll be fine. This would be a good time to walk off the stress but I don't want to leave the phone.

Nellie, I will say prayers for your cataract surgeries. I too have to have it done, someday, I have them forming. I want to try the L Carnosine eye drops for a time before I go for the surgeries. Right now my eyes are corrected to 25/35 and it seems okay. I have very little blurring with glasses. But ugh. Getting older is not for the weak.

Carol, hope your computer gets up and running, wish I was closer I could help with that.

Hi Everyone,
I read back a bit, do we have a newcomer to the group?? I didn't find a new post??? Am I missing something??

Carol, sorry to hear about your friend. CA of liver is hard illness to deal with, has so many effects on the body in general. Will say a prayer for him.

NELLIE I hope you get better and that no problems with the nerve to your ear. It is hard to be ill, I will say prayer for you too.

I am doing okay, kind of fell off the wagon with diet and exercise lately. Haven't been sparkling either. I think I just needed a break from it all. I try so hard for so long and lose little. Am going to ask the doctor in September about any thyroid issues as I have signs and symptoms of thyroid deficiency. I guess it will mean another pill to take. Seems like everything has a pill for it.

It is hot here but no humidity. AC on full blast lately. August heat. It usually cools down mid September and I cannot wait for cooler weather. 112 today and tomorrow.

Phyllis

That is a tough choice. Becky, just stop by when you can, and when you need a lift or a prayer.
We'll be here...

I just learned a good friend of mine has liver cancer, no chemo nor other treatment apparently can be done. I think he's in shock yet. I feel so badly, for him and for me.

It's been a tough week.

Hi Nellie

I have hearing problems in my left ear due to my meniere's, I hope all goes well for you.

I'm so sorry all I've been MIA, it's been very difficult to keep Sparking with so much going on, my job is a constant worry whether tomorrow I'll find out I don't have a job anymore. My stepdad has opted to discontinue Chemo so it's been a very difficult time for my family.

I"m still trying to keep a weekly food log but haven't had much time to keep up with the post or anything. I'll do the best I can to stop by whenever I can.

Hope you all have a great week.

Yesterday I went for my hearing test to see if my hearing may be affected my being able to walk without stumbling. After the test it was determined that my hearing on the left side is slightly diminished for high frequencies, but not enough to affect my walking. The doctor felt that perhaps a small amount of neuropathy in my feet may be the cause of that. I will be having an MRI of my head to see if perhaps I am growing a neuroma on my auditory nerve for the left ear since it is unusual for the hearing to be different in the two ears. Hmmmm, it seems that one test leads to another! emoticon

Thanks Carol. Serena expects food every time she walks into the kitchen now. If she stops eating I put her food back in the refrigerator or throw it out, depending on what's left. It's not unusual for her to have a "midnight snack". I only worry if we go out early in the day and don't return home for several hours. In that case I feed her early and then give her the supplement before we leave. That doesn't happen very often. As an update - she's not gaining weight at all. We're committed to keeping her as happy and content as possible. I know some of her problems can't be resolved and we're not going to subject her to invasive procedures at this time.

It would be most unusual if anyone were to send the sun my way, since weather basically starts where I am -- the Pacific NW. The sun was out for a while yesterday and then ducked behind the clouds again. Same story today!

It is frustrating and annoying when someone who isn't at fault gets penalized!!!

Carol, so sorry to hear about DH getting hit. It's awful that they put a mark against him.
NELLIEC I really didn't send the sun your way, hope it's not hot for you like it is here, my ac runs almost all day.

Not much going on here, just going to do some cleaning and have to scrub my kitchen floor. Not my favorite chore either.

Supposed to be cooler today, but then hot again tomorrow. IL cop called this morning at 5:30am, so we could know that "nothing will be done" about the hit and run driver. They didn't even bother to try and catch him, nor contact him. So we're just out the $1,000 because of the damage to the trailer, (not ours, the brand new one my DH was delivering), the mileage, the tolls, plus the black marks on DH record. Yes, on DH's record even tho HE was the one hit. Made us so steaming mad we couldn't even close our eyes again so up very early. Arrrggghhh.....

Hi Everyone,
NELLIE I can't help but get a little jealous of your weather. Would love some of that!!!

Marilyn, forgot- no answer for you with the food thing. All I could think of was ice underneath like you tried. I'll keep trying to think of something...

Nellie, you're either feeling wicked or cruel today! Hahaha!

Phyllis, I've also been sooo busy. So... got your email- the angels were talking to you with that harp string! Hahaha! (Now I'm being wicked!) emoticon emoticon emoticon

Marilyn, what a CUTE photo. With 4 of them I want to cover the stroller with mesh or something. Haven't quite got it figured out... No time. It will be winter before I can even think about it!

So much to do, so little time! I need to get serious about losing 5 lbs. I've gained back. But my days get so busy, I just forget to track, to plan, etc. Oh, dear.

Hi everyone, I guess most of us are feeling the heat.
It's hard to deal with. I have been keeping my ac on 84 to try to keep the bill as low as possible and still be comfortable. It's a battle here every summer.

Nelliec, good for you getting to stay home from the doctors,

I always feel anxiety when I have to go to the doctor, seems like lately she has something new for me to have to deal with on each visit there.

I guess getting older comes with some of these problems, plus being overweight. That doesn't help. I have lost 27 lbs already but it is not enough yet. Still have 30 or so to take off. I am working on that. Had to take a breather but am now jumping back on the bandwagon to take off a few more lbs.

Paco doesn't want to go to bed at night lately, he goes but then gets up and goes to lay in living room. I figure maybe his bed is too hot since he's laying on down comforter. Today I am going to make him up a cooler bed with a couple pillows. Maybe that will work.

DH job is going much smoother as he has caught on with all he has to do all day. His supervisor doesn't talk hardly at all so DH doesn't know if he is doing a good enough job, although he stays very busy and also does extra jobs when it is slow. I told him his boss will probably never say much unless he does something wrong. But they did order his uniforms so I guess they like how he does his job or they wouldn't be ordering uniforms. DH has never worked for a man of so few words. I met him and he said very very little.

BECKY, we have a few days of 'better' weather ahead of us, and I have felt sick before on the hotter days. Most days I just stay inside, don't go anywhere at all because of the intense heat.

Where is STACIA?? Come back, we miss you!

Planning on playing harp today for an hour at least. I have little planned for today. Sometimes I really miss working. Then I snap back into enjoying my good days.

CAROL, I will email you later today. I have been busy with stuff around the house, trying to clean up my 3 hotspots that seem to grow junk. I am determined to get those fires put out for good.

Gotta go get some spark points and find breakfast.
Phyllis

Hi Carol,

I used to take Sasha for walks in a stroller. She wore a harness and I held on to her leash while we walked. I used to worry about strange dogs too so I stayed pretty close to home. Here's a link to a photo of her in the stroller:

Hi Carol, Nellie and all my Chi friends.

Hope everyone is surviving the heat.

It's been such a busy summer. Family parties, picnics, reunions etc. and even a nephew's wedding coming up this weekend. Of course all include food, food and more food.

I have a heat-related question........since Serena can't eat dry food, I try to have her blended mush available at all times while I'm home. I was wondering if there was any way to keep her food cool if we go out. Putting ice in one dish and putting her food dish on top didn't work out too well. I'm afraid to leave food for her if we're out for more than a couple of hours. Most of the food I blend for her includes chicken breast, sometimes hamburger meat and/or wet dog food, so it would spoil within hours. Suggestions would be most welcome.

Marilyn

This morning I was getting geared up to go to a doctor appointment this afternoon, and then I got a call from the doctor's office saying that he has to be at the hospital all day, so they needed to reschedule my appointment. That was fine with me!

Ohhhh, Becky, be careful. This heat is a killer. We are having a heat index today of 117. It's just awful. I wish I could just go sit in front of a fan instead of teaching piano in a few min.
Have a fun time with your mom, Becky and come back and tell us all about it!

Hi everyone

I'm here, I tried to catch up yesterday but I think I got heat exhaustion and was very sick. I went to visit my mom yesterday and made several trips from her house to my car she had somethings for my daughter and I then driving hom the car was very hot from sitting in the sun when I got home I had to make several trips to unload the car and when I sat down I was extremely dizzy and sick to my stomach. I ended up laying down for a few hours then just took it easy the rest of the day.

I know all parts of the country are having extreme heat, I can defiantly sympathize.

I'll be going on vacation at the end of the week so you all probably won't hear from my much until end of next week. I'm going to Showlow with my mom giving her a break from all the troubles here in town, my step brother will be taking care of his father. Showlow is going to be much cooler and with the monsoons it will strom everyday : ). Take care and keep on sparkin'

Forgot to mention- the weatherman is saying the heat index will be 117 here today. Already 71% humidity at 7am! Got to 81 yesterday. I stepped out with the dogs and couldn't see thru my glasses before I got down the second step- they had steamed up!

Yes, Nellie, it is nice, and doesn't happen often enough.

OK, gals... where is everyone? Me and Nellie seem to be the only active ones lately and we're getting lonesome! I sure hope we don't let this group die. It's not looking good, and it was my favorite group. I miss everyone...
