Morning!

Kim, I totally reserve the right to gripe about the heat when that time comes! emoticon Dusty agrees with me - there's a whole thread devoted to it! In the mean time, WOW, I'm tired of the snow and ice! I'm seriously contemplating moving to Bern's island paradise!

Jeanne, I am glad to hear that you got the kids settled in. It stinks how it happened but at least you know that they are safe.

I am so over this darn weather, the snow and ice is about to drive me bonkers! 2 more weeks and it will be spring. I keep telling myself not to complain because my luck this summer will be a scorcher.

Hi all! I have been off the map the last few days. Sometimes I feel like I'm meeting myself coming and going!

Lee - Yes my bedroom is definitely my retreat and my noise cancelling headphones are Heaven sent!

The kids are mostly settled in. We have some stuff to get into storage this weekend but they are here where they are safe. It is a real adjustment getting used to little kids in the house again! Well I'm babysitting and they are both down for naps but the 4 month old is doing her version of yakking her head off and the 4 year old is doing his best to not sleep! I have been getting over a half mile in just around the house while helping out! I must say that I am getting to the point of exhaustion and will crash soon! I hope everyone has a really good afternoon!

Good morning!

Bern, I'm sure envying you your lovely weather - we've got more ice and snow on the way!

Cixel, I invested in yaktrax this year - they slip over your shoes and keep you from slipping on the ice. Honestly, it's been the best $20 I've spent. We've had tons of ice this past few weeks and you can just tromp right over it and not slip a bit! Seeing as how I'm extremely clumsy, ice and I do not get along at ALL! Sorry you fell. Hope you're not too sore today!

Hello team mates! I need a boost! I feel like a lump on a log, I have an appointment everyday this week. Today while leaving my psyologist I slipped and fell. I finally stood up and fell again crawled over off the ice stood up again walked a few steps fell right on my tail bone. This of course gave me free range to binge!!!!!

Lee, a mile for me equals about 2,500 steps. Just got back from my walk to the park. I haven't ran since 1986. If someone were chasing me I would just be caught. That saying, when you walk through the woods take a fat person with you is really true. Why you ask, because the bears are happy with the first thing they catch.

Laundry successfully line dried yesterday. Unfortunately it was the maids day off and it is now safely still in the laundry basket waiting to be folded. Ah the life of Reilly.

Paul, the real estate Annie is on, Dragon Point, recently sold and the new owner is talking about restoring Annie back to her full glory, but I am of the opinion he was just adding more time to his 15 minutes of almost fame. Time will tell.

GOOD MORNING TO ALL. WELL, TODAY IS THE 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF MY SWEET ALAN'S DEATH. emoticon I CAN'T BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN A YEAR. I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE HE IS GONE FOREVER. I DON'T THINK THAT THERE WILL EVER BE A TIME THAT I DO NOT MISS HIM. emoticon

OUR STATE GOT A BUNCH OF SNOW & ICE DUMPED ON IT THE END OF LAST WEEK AND OVER THE WEEKEND, ENOUGH THAT JUST ABOUT EVERY CHURCH IN THE AREA WAS CLOSED ON SUNDAY. IN THE ALMOST 5 YEARS THAT I'VE BEEN GOING TO MY CHURCH, THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN CLOSED DUE TO THE WEATHER, BUT THEY WERE THIS PAST SUNDAY! MOTHER NATURE IS SUPPOSE TO DUMP EVEN MORE SNOW/ICE ON US TOMORROW & THURSDAY. emoticon emoticon

TODAY I AM MAKING A SPECIAL EFFORT TO STAY AWAY FROM THE HOUSE, AND MEMORIES OF MY ALAN, AS MUCH AS I CAN. I PLAN ON GOING TO A CHRISTIAN BOOK STORE AND PICKING UP SOME CHRISTIAN GREETING CARDS, AS I AM TOTALLY OUT OF BIRTHDAY CARDS AND JUST ABOUT OUT OF ANNIVERSARY CARDS TO KEEP UP WITH MY GREET CARD MINISTRY FOR MY CHURCH. THEN I HAVE PLANS OF DROPPING BY THE DAV (DISABLED AMERICAN VETERAN'S), THE CHAPTER THAT ALAN & I ARE LIFE-TIME MEMBERS OF....TO SEE HOW EVERYONE THERE IS DOING. THEY HAVE NOT SEEN ME IN A COUPLE MONTHS AND WILL PROBABLY BE SURPRISED TO SEE ME. ESPECIALLY TODAY. emoticon I ALSO NEED TO STOP BY THE GROCERY STORE, BUT NOT SURE THAT WILL HAPPEN TODAY. IT DEPENDS ON HOW I AM FEELING AFTER I HAVE BATTLED THE CHRISTIAN BOOK STORE AND THE DAV.

TOMORROW, FINALLY, I HAVE MY FIRST COUNSELING APPOINTMENT. I HAVE SPENT THIS ENTIRE LAST YEAR TRYING TO GET COUNSELING. GRIEF COUNSELING SHOULD NOT BE SO hard TO FIND/GET. WHEN I WENT IN FOR MY INTAKE APPOINTMENT LAST WEEK, THE PERSON ASKED ME WHY I WAITED A YEAR BEFORE SEEKING OUT COUNSEL. I TOLD HER THAT I HAD NOT BEEN WAITING!! THAT I HAD WANTED COUNSEL RIGHT AFTER MY HUSBAND PASSED AWAY BUT COULD NOT FIND ANY. TOLD HER THAT THIS WHOLE PAST YEAR I HAVE BEEN HUNTING FOR COUNSEL. THE LADY JUST LOOKED AT ME AND SAID "OH". SO, I AM HOPING THAT TOMORROW I CAN BEGIN TO GET SOME GROUND WORK DONE AND MAYBE BEGIN THE HEALING PROCESS.

PLEASE FORGIVE ME EVERYONE FOR NOT BEING AROUND MUCH. ON A LOT OF DAYS I JUST WOULD LIKE TO CRAWL UNDER A ROCK AND HAVE LIFE PASS ME BY. BUT, THANKS TO GOD, I DO MANAGE TO MUDDLE THRU GETTING THE THINGS DONE THAT HAS TO BE DONE.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR LOVING THOUGHS AND PRAYERS.

HUGS, STARR

MAKE 2018 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU!!

"RIP MY SWEET, SWEET ALAN. I WILL LOVE & MISS YOU FOREVER." ~~~~~MARCH 3rd 2014~~~~~

Good Morning all,

Bern, I got a kick out of your post that you were going to hang your laundry out... it's snowing here! Then I went back and saw that you live on an island in Florida... and not in the mountain's of Utah!

Hope all of you have a glorious Tuesday! Donna

Rough Monday waking up so far. Too much wine and popcorn last night. Still working on my first cup of coffee. Have a load in the washer, plan to hang it outside. Nice warm, almost hot day here on the island.

Jeanne, glad you almost have those kids situated. I'm not so sure about your wisdom in 4 year olds helping. I always got hit with a bunch of questions and creative ways you can swing a broom handle, look out! I never figured out how to take the batteries out so they would just let me do my work.

The turn about for my daily walk. I usually walk out on the deck and look for river dolphins then head back home. It's about 2,600 steps and if I'm creative I can get it up to 4,000. Haven't seen a dolphin all winter.

Dropping by to say hello. The challenge is starting, and I tend to neglect this thread when that happens! I'll try to check in more often.

We had a pretty quiet weekend. Got lots of snow (more than they were predicting) so I spent the day yesterday doing laundry and cleaning. I also got to spend some quality time with the dog on my lap! emoticon

Kim (DTHOR) - Your new picture is great! You look beautiful! We got DD and her family moved in for the most part. We still have some organizing to do and they have to finish emptying out that other house yet which my SIL will be working on today! I have been keeping an eye on the kidlets for them a couple hours each day to give them some time to do it without having to keep an eye on them at the same time. I will do the same for SIL today while DD is at work. At least for the baby. The 4 year old can go "help" his daddy sort through some things!

We have had some delays..... we had to replace the downstairs toilet .. we tried to fix the old one to no avail and so that took time. Doors needed locks put on them upstairs as we have our room that has medications and so forth in it and a spare room with miscellaneous items that can hurt a young one..... tools and the like. It's amazing how sneaky a 4 year old can be when they want to get somewhere they aren't supposed to! I had forgotten! Anyway we still have to secure a storage shed and get a u-haul next weekend to put the things in storage that need to go there. The important bits are taken care of and my little family now sleeps where it's nice and warm!

I totally went off the rails yesterday and did not even track my food! I haven't done that in the last 7 1/2 months! I could go back and track if I could remember everything I ate but when you have short term memory trouble if you don't take a second to write it down right away you forget! I even forgot to wear my tracker for more than half the day! So today is a clean slate and I am starting over, beginning anew, starting again.... however you want to term it! Hopefully with a little determination, I can kick this plateau thing in the behind too. Of course I'd rather be sitting still than going in the wrong direction!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Carole, So glad that you had awesome renters. I am sure that you are very happy to be back home!

Paul, You are too funny. I love the sit-ups. And your fur baby was adorable.

Jeannie, How is your dd doing did you get them all moved in and settled?

Dusty, how is the new laptop working for you? I hope you aren't having any problems like you did with the other one.

I have so much to do today it's not funny. My entire house needs cleaned, I have to get my treadmill put together and. I hate only having one day off a week. Everything around here seems to suffer. With both hubby and I working 6 days a week. I am hoping to have everything done by this afternoon early so I can just relax. LOL We shall see. Have a great day all.

So Sweet. When I was growing up my aunt had one too named Rusty. She also had a cocker spaniel named Inky. Inky got one of her front legs got in a trap and had to have it removed but it didn't slow her down. They were the best of pals.

Interesting how they don't let things like that get them down. They do the best they can and move on and remain happy and loving. Wish I could be more like that:). Woof!

Our first golden (we got her 10 years ago as a puppy). She died last Fall. I love the boys (Reno and Gizmo) but not like Goldie and Rusty (both gotten when they were puppies).

Reno and Gizmo are seniors. After they are gone we will be done with having dogs as pets. The kids have grown up and time to have a clean house!

We made our big trek from West Virginia to Arizona, took us 3 1/2 days driving two cars with everything we own packed inside (including our 2 fur babies). We arrived home to find us house (which we have had rented out for 14 months) in such a state of .........perfection! We are so blessed! The tenants left our house better than when we left! God certainly does great work!

Good morning! Just signed up for the challenge, I'm looking forward to some extra motivation!

My new job is going well, I'm still officially training, but I'm feeling more comfortable with it. The kids here had about a week off school due to snow and ice, but went back yesterday. The shop is doing well - Ben is recording some commercials for for a local radio station today! emoticon

Better get to work - have a good one!

So sorry I have been quite. I tell ya this tax season is really taking it out of me. We have been stupid busy. One of the ladies is retiring after this year and so two of us have been absorbing her clients she doesn't have time to do as she is part time now. And we have been slammed with not only our own but hers as well. And I am about brain dead when I get home at 8 or 9 in the evening.

Paul Congrats to your twins that Dean's list is fabulous and I know you are one proud father! Glad to hear you and your wife had a great Valentine's day even if it was late. Better late than never right? And $400+ a month in taxes, I think I would have heart failure!

Dusty, Glad to see you are back. I hope you are liking your new computer. And I can't wait for the Spring challenge.

Bern, I am not ignoring you and Dusty on the Walking Dead thread I am so far behind right now I don't want to see spoilers lol So As soon as I get caught up I shall be back there. hee hee. And stay away from the girl scout cookies.

Jeanne, Sounds like the auntie is just being witch. b* And just a nasty person, but I do believe in Karma and what goes around comes around ya know? Plus sounds as though they will be much better off in the end. But what a mean thing to do to someone with children in the winter time. UGH some people have no since!

Well, I guess I need to hit the shower and get ready for work. Hope everyone has a great day!!

I am much more calm and at peace now. We decided to slow down on getting the kids a place of their own for now and just focus on getting them moved in here where we have heat.

Paul - the aunt has loads of money.... a private attorney on retainer, a house in the most expensive neighborhood in the metro area, etc, etc. Her input into the furnace would have been 2300 bucks.

Dusty - All I can say is that the woman has never liked DD. My DD was living there helping take care of her MIL when she was sick. There was someone pounding on the door and pounding on the door. DD was just getting out of the bath. She put on a full length terry robe and answered the door. It was the aunt and she called my DD a whore who shouldn't be answering a door when not properly dressed. She would constantly call them to yell at them about something and stop by with no notice and yell about what type of furniture they had, that the windows had child size prints on them (two 4 yr. old's lived there) that there was a dish in the sink. NOT a pile... A dish. This is one of the most psychotic, controlling women I have ever known. I'm known for giving people wide latitude but when part of not getting evicted is supporting 2 other family members (the sister in law and her daughter), it's just wrong. She is using the furnace as an excuse. When informed of the furnace the first time she screamed at them for quite some time and then hung up on them. When notified in writing (as is the law) she gave them the notice to evict. She's giving them until 21 March but with no heat and 3 little ones, we are making it happen as quickly as possible.

We made great inroads into preparing the 2 rooms yesterday by getting the big stuff out of the way. Now we just have to clean up around where heavy stuff was sitting. DD wants to do that herself as she is a bit OCD about cleaning. I will be 4 year old proofing the upper levels today!

I won't be joining the Spring BL challenge as I am going to have too many balls in the air right now to keep up with things. Also, I'm on a plateau that I thought I had busted but that seems to be just playing mind games with me! Grrr! I will shoot for joining the next challenge ya'll do!

Hi All!

Jeanne - I'm sorry to hear about what you and your daughter's family has been going through. I can relate since I was evicted (only because they weren't going to accept Section 8, HUD anymore) after 17 years. It was pretty horrible. I was preparing to go to a shelter but luckily I found a place at the last minute. More expensive but at least I wasn't homeless:) I couldn't believe how most won't accept the Section 8 anymore. I think it's a good deal for all involved but I think too many landlords, owners have been burnt by so many bad tenants.

Did the aunt say why she was evicting them besides the furnace? Does she plan on selling the place? It's such a total shock when something like that happens!

It's so nice that you're going to help them with a mobile home! I would have liked that but couldn't afford it. It sounds (from your blog) that when it's all settled they'll be better off.

Hang in there and take care of yourself. Don't let yourself get rundown and try as best you can to stick to your daily routine. Remember (I know it can be hard for most) to put yourself first. Hopefully the time will go fast without any more drama. Hugs!


Paul - I had no idea that a furnace could cost so much! Not many can afford that. Plus you're having to pay $400.00 a month in taxes. Ugh!

A 1B/1B apt. where I live runs around $1450.-1600. and up. Minimum wage won't cover that.

Sounds like life is going good for you and your family! emoticon

Nothing to celebrate or be joyful for me lately:) But I did finally get a laptop last Friday and so far so good! Just getting used to it and getting it set up the way I want. Soooooo I'm happy for that! Makes me feel normal again:)


emoticon Amanda! Good to hear from you! I'm sorry about your re-gain. (Me too since I moved in Dec.) It's great that you're recommitted!


Bern - LOL @ "windows full of baked goods and not girl goods!" emoticon

Quiet here - Anyone has anything to celebrate - something good to share and bring joy to the team?

Real Examples
Both my twins made the Dean's list for their first semester at college.

My youngest got her first job (Hershey Park)

My treadmill is working well and helping to keep my fitness streak going when it too cold to leave the house. It rated for 400 pounds and really is awesome to have.

My wife celebrated Valentine's Day Sunday and had a wonderful day.
