Glad the church is so supportive. That is great. I am praying for you and Bob. Safe travel to Pittsburgh, the doctorís hands, healing, and recovery. May the Lord be with you both and your family.

Yes I liked the biker. I need to make her a vest. I got the bike at a Dollar Store. I found red felt for the vest. I made the cjphaps our of an old black leather purse. The helmet is a half of a ball covered in leather. There wasnít enough to make the vest. There are two Rís one on each side of the bike. I went to Good Will and found a car, emergency truck, and a helicopter. Now make the outfits. There was a tree house thing too.

Blessings
Sue

I LOVE the biker elf! They all are too cute, Sue!

One piece was gone from my cake...ONE PIECE!!! So later, after I'd been home for a while, I paid tribute to my dad and had a piece with milk on it. That's how he liked his cake. The rest is in the fridge for the grands...Should be gone before I get home tomorrow.

Back to work, at least in the early morning. When Bob calls, we'll be heading down to Pittsburgh to wait for him to get out of surgery. Pastor had special prayers for him today. This church has so embraced us as their own! I was talking to a new woman today at the pot luck, who's daughter just started there a few months ago, telling her how wonderful everyone there was and she said they have been a tremendous help to her daughter, who is raising 4 kids alone. I'm so grateful God led us here...

I need to make a trip up to the cottage to get a twin mattress for Bob. No way I'm sleeping in the same bed with that contraption he'll have on his leg! My love seat makes into a twin bed, but the mattress is very uncomfortable. I just put 2 brand new sets in at the cottage. Might as well make use of one, since I probably won't get up there for a while...

Praying God has blessed you all with a beautiful day like mine...it's gorgeous here in Pa...finally...

Prayers for Bib and you. Also, the rest of your family. I am glad you have support.

Our Kiwanis Club had a pancake dinner yesterday. It went slow but we had wonderful help

I wonder why the words disappear too. Right now I am pushing to get Elf on a Shelf daily things done to take with us when we go to visit our nephew and family.

So far a bike, tic-tac-toe, bag race, and build a Santa








Blessings to you today, Sue

I am going to kill my computer...it's only typing half the words and sentences. I had my post all done, and it lost it and now I'm starting over...*sigh*...

Back to church tomorrow, alone. Another pot luck. I made a chocolate cake with white icing and sprinkles. If I have to bring any back home, Haylee and Nathaniel will be here this week to eat it...

Bob had some company today. His brother and sister in law went to visit. I won't see him until after surgery on Monday.

That is a special surgery. I didnít realize he hurt the foot. I am glad you were there to talk to the surgeon. It is best If the swelling is down. Prayers for you. I am glad too that you Edward not alone. Two months off the foot will go fast. These months have gone so fast now. Prayers for you both.

Late today. Our club had a pancake breakfast. We were at a place that was doing a multi Phasic blood test. We had to start at 7 am when their first people would be done. So left the house at 6 am and back at 2:45 pm. We store a lot of the club things so this is my first rest.

I have the aprons in the washer and the other stuff from the breakfast Hope to catch up.

Sue

Once again, surgery cancelled about an hour after we got to Pittsburgh! Unbelievable! did get a chance to talk to the surgeon, a very nice man. Held my tongue and got my questions answered. We never understood the extent of Bob's injuries until today. A few years ago, they would have just amputated his foot, because of the type of damage. Now it is a very long, extensive surgery consisting of bone grafts, plates and pins, with no weight bearing at all for two months. He said he will put in first place on Monday morning, barring no more serious trauma injuries show up at their door. What's a couple more days off work? Our school superintendent has been more than kind to Holly and me concerning this whole thing.

God is so good...

Waiting for Holly and my sister, Nancy, to get here so we can get to the hospital.

I want to pray a blessing over our team members today, that God will give us all the strength to continue this battle, lose the weight and have a successful day. I appreciate you all more than you know...

Prayers for you and Bob. I am glad your sister is driving you down to the hospital. You should not go alone. Prayers you are feeling better too! You have your life full of stress so I am praying for healing and strength.

This was a busy week. Today there is a lot of little things to catch up. I will write about it and put some pictures on when I get closer done.

I really miss those days when I could pop in here and yap about whatever went on that day. Seems I am caught in a standstill until this last surgery is taken care of and he is home. My sister is taking me down to the hospital and Bob says I can't stay, that I have to come home. He doesn't want me to catch anything else from there. He's sounding depressed today. I want him home..

Batteries died in my scale I know I've lost. Hopefully, that's not just wishful thinking...

Well, everybody, the only trip I got to take to the cottage was on Thursday to pick Bob up and take him to the ER. He fell off the roof and dislocated 2 toes and severely fractured 3 metatarsal bones. He wouldn't go to the closest hospital, or the one near my mom&dad's. He insisted on coming clear home to Grove City ER, so he would be close to home. Well, guess what? They shipped him on to Presby in Pittsburgh! So we have to make a 70 mile trip. He had one surgery already, and another coming up hopefully today or tomorrow. I came home on Friday night with bad chest congestion, something about those hospitals, I get it anytime I'm there for long. Since I've come home, I've slept a total of about 23 hours. I need to get back down there, but I don't drive in that area. It's crazy. On the good side...I've lost 5 pounds..


Here's to better days ahead! Have a lovely day, all...

Vicky

High winds and lots of branches down. I raked outside for 25 minutes to clear the branches from the willow tree.

Another day of sunshine. I am feeling good and some energy back.

Sunshine makes me happy!! The snow melted and it is warmer today. I am beginning to think that summer will come and this year spring was a wipe out. I am hoping that summer is not extremely hot. We have so much rain now the lawn is a swamp.

Prayers for your sister. Keep us posted. I know about diabetics problems with surgery. My broth and mother were both diabetic. These days though the surgeons are better equipped for their diabetic patients needs.

Vicky, the trip to the cottage should be good. This weekend is supposed to be warmer. Birthday wishes for a happy year ahead for your daughter. Wonderful!!

Prayers and blessings to all

Greetings one and all! PTL my sister's depression is lifting, but she has to have surgery to have her gallbladder out. This can be risky for diabetics so I am once again asking for your prayers. Have been glad for a few warmer days so I can get out and walk.Blessings.

Someone said spring will be coming in May this year...I believe it! It was spitting snow when I left work a few minutes ago. Cottage can be opened this coming weekend. Yay!!! But I don't know if we can get to it with all this snow...

My daughter is 38 today. My, how time flies. She is my only surviving child and a strong woman of God. I am so proud of her...

Bundle up, y'all. It's cold out today...

Sunshine today!! It is so nice to see blue sky.

Yesterday we visited a couple Dave does their tax form. We had to get the paper work. They are 90 and 91. They are not doing too well but both were doing well yesterday. We took them to dinner. I said to Dave ďDo you think we will get that far? ď. They walked out of the restaurant holding hands smiling at each other.

Today our church youth group is doing a dinner to raise money to go to the yearly conference. We are staying fit the dinner. Tomorrow the music group plans at a nursing home near Fairmont wv. We all go and eat at a restaurant before we drive back to Morgantown. Tuesday is the Kiwanis meet and we eat dinner together before the meeting. So........ I have a vacation from cooking for four days!!! Yesterday through Tuesday. That is a good feeling. I do have to watch what I eat.

Prayers for you and blessings today.

I understand the clean out process We did my parents house, Dave's parents house and there was no inch of space without something.

We have snow too. But not as bad as predicted. We have to go to Clarksburg this afternoon and it is okay. The roads are not covered or icy

my friend Sandy helps me go to exercise. These days I would like to just stay home but she keeps me going I still need more walking,.

Blessings to you and enjoy the weekend relaxing.

Oh, my! Bob was supposed to go with the church men to tear down a barn today and we woke up to 3 or 4 inches of snow! What a mess. I'm not even leaving the house...

We got 2 of Mom's rooms cleaned and red out this week. We did her bedroom and closet on Thursday. No woman should own that many clothes! I have 3 big garbage bags in the trunk of my car for the Salvation Army! Her closet is still full! She just laughs about it. The only sad time came when I pulled a pair of Dad's old jeans out of a basket of things that needed mended. He always wore those carpenter jeans. I asked if I could keep them. I'm going to make something out of them.

Sue, I need to get back into the exercise habit. I was hoping to get back to walking when spring gets here, but I don't think it's coming...

Have a lovely day, all...

Back into the 30's for us. I'm starting to get irritated with this weather. Never know how to dress for work anymore...

I have gained 6 pounds since Dad first fell. I need to snap out of it where my eating is concerned. My knees and ankles are protesting big time...

Be back later...

Holly, Nancy and I got Mom's living room walls washed down, rearranged her furniture and cleared off all the flat surfaces and dusted. It looks so much better. It's not gonna be an easy task getting her out of there though. She does not want to part with a thing! I'm going up Thursday with boxes so we can let her choose what to keep and pack, and what to donate. She needs to go thru her clothes, too, because she still has a lot of her "fat clothes" in her closet. Thankfully, it's almost time to pack away winter clothes, too. She's definitely sure she is selling the place though...

Sun is shining here...beautiful...

Yesterday we went to early church and then helped with the morning breakfast between services. My daughter called to say her husband had the flu. We changed and I just took out things I had planned to bring to dinner and she gave me ham to take home. We Iíll have dinner again sometime. Easter was a quit day.

Today we woke up to about 2 inches of snow!!! It covered my Dafodills again. It is another dark day. My friend called and her granddaughter stayed over night so she couldnít get to exercise. That was fine with me and I am taking he day off. I need to play the songs I am playing in th nursing homes this month. I have had no time to do that for over a week.

April is here and I am hoping that real spring is coming!
Prayers for all.

Your Mom has you in mind for that piece. It may just be something you will later find is important. That meeting is always hard. It sounds like you have a good plan for her. A house near your brother is good. She will have people near by.

Today we are headed to church to get some things ready for tomorrow. I have all foods ready and lined up so no last minute push. My daughter is cooking the main things. I am going to enjoy the day. She has done a lot of work in her kitchen. I canít wait to see it.


Happy Easter! Prayers for you and your family.

Family meeting at Mom's yesterday. I knew what most of it was about, selling her place and putting a modular on my brother's extra lot, but I did get a bit of a shock. She's giving me Dad's old secretary cabinet. It was my grandfathers' before that and I don't ever remember it not being a part of our home. I really was not expecting it. My sister both have an attachment to it, but I never really did. They both got other things, I have no idea what, but that's between them and Mom. Right now I'm just a bit confused about it all...

Weight is up and my scale batteries are dying, which might be a good thing. I'll really have to be careful and try not to gain.

Sun is shining here but Lord knows for how long. Enjoy your day, all...

Yesterday was busy. There were too many things to do. Maundy Thursday service includes the pastor washing feet. I help with that. I have tubs and hand towels. After communion the front of the church is cleared for Good Friday. It was a very moving service. Christ gave so much to save us.

Rain and dark again today. We have a few more things to do. We are eating at Carolís ( daughter) house. It will be nice.

Prayers continue for your Momís arm to heal and sympathy for your family.

Yes, the rain. You have to be careful where you walk. The grass will just slide off and you're slipping in the mud underneath! Still, it's not snow...

I came home to Bob and the dog asleep on the couch. That's when I know he's not feeling good...

Not much else going on. Two more months of work, then one more year to go and I'm done. I'm so ready!

It's a good day to just veg out and not do anything...

That is a good thing. She will be able to get around. There are always things in a home that hit you with a memory when you don't expect it. Prayers for her arm to heal.

Today is rain and dark. I have a friend coming to visit for a little while. then I need to get back to getting ready for Easter.

Prayers for all

I got to spend a few hours with Mom today. She's in a lot of pain with that broken arm. She has decided to have a family meeting on Friday. She told me she's selling the house and moving closer to town, which is a wonderful idea. It's hard to be in the house without Dad...

Not much else going on, except the rain...at least it's not snow.

Good idea to get to the cottage. It is good that you have a place to go that is peaceful and out in nature.

We had a Kiwanis meeting yesterday all day. The Key Clubs are students that are in High School. They were a tremendous group. They give you a picture you don't see in the papers and on the news. The projects they do in the communities is outstanding. Their speeches were interesting and well said. It makes you proud of the next generation.

Today we usher so we leave for church early.
Prayers for all and Blessings
Sue.

Hello, friends. We are doing okay...

Bob and I were up at the cottage for the day. It was nice to get away from home and out into the peace and quiet. I got a big shelf hung on the wall for some of my teapots to sit on. I also hung an new set of wind chimes that my friends from work got me. They're beautiful...the chimes and the friends!

I bought a new pair of levis off Amazon and they came today. I am so hard to fit where jeans are concerned, and I really prefer to try them on, but I decided to take a chance. They fit fairly well and I'm basically happy with them. My left leg has been injured more than once, so most of the time, that pant leg is too tight. These don't seem to feel that way. We'll see what they're like after they're washed. Maybe I'll be ordering more...

Hope you all are enjoying sunshine like I am...

Vicky

Good to hear from you Ann. My Daffodils are still in bloom after being covered 4 times by snow.
It is good to hear your trees are waking up. Prayers for you.

Vicky Prayers for you and your family. I hope the work week ended well.

We have a Kiwanis convention here in Morgantown this weekend. We are only going for today.. It is all day and dinner in the evening. The Kiwanis clubs, Circle K (University clubs), and the Key Clubs(High School Clubs, are all here. We call it the Kiwanis family convention.

Enjoy the weekend.

Hello

Sue: So glad to hear you had a good time travelling .and Carol's visit went well...she was back on time....excellent .....to top it off you and Carol had lunch together. I am so glad... Families are so important.

I can see buds on the new trees we planted last fall. No flowers yet. Our rose bush needs trimming....Daffodils surviving the snow.....yippee ...spring is here....somebody tell the weather....still chilly here although it is above freezing....we want more...

Vicky: so good to hear that you were the receiver of many hugs from people at work who understand ....it means so much! I remember being on a train ride to Toronto about three years after my mom passed and of all things I saw my former babysitter on the train. We had a lovely visit but when she asked about my mom ....I started crying when I had to tell her what happened. Thats when I got hugs from her. Now I hadn't cried for a long time, but this was an unexpected circumstance and the water works began. Its funny but you know afterwards I felt much lighter. Everyone grieves in different ways....so don't worry .....losing a parent is such a shock no matter how old you are or them. Take one day at a time my friend!

Our house needed some TLC recently. It has a main roof and then there is this little roof over the garage. The main roof was in good repair but not the little roof so yesterday we got a new roof. They matched the shingles to a "T". The roofer felt that that area needed a vent since the other roof area had three vents and it was still in good condition after 16 years. The cost was only $360. The company has been in business for 35 years.

Well that is all for today. Luv you gals in Jesus name

Ann

Be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend. Give out grace to others and you will receive grace back.

OH! that is good to hear. Your work friends are good.

We had sunshine yesterday all the way to and from Latrobe. Carol was back on time and we had lunch there at the restaurant and drove home. She had a good visit.

My little Daffodils survived the snow again. Today I am heading out to exercise. We usually go on Thursday but moved to Friday because of our trip to pick up Carol.

Yes, we had school. The roads were mostly clear last evening. Today it is sunny and beautiful. Work went okay. I have a couple friends at my school, one, a teacher who lost her dad last fall, and another, an aide who's dad died last month. I had so many hugs. It doesn't really matter how long ago it was, when you lose a parent, it's like the wound stays fresh forever. While I was going thru this, it was like Betsy was reliving her own dad's death, from almost 3 years ago. I felt so understood today...

Hope everyone is having a successful day...

This is certainly not spring here. We didnít get more snow last night. Yesterday whole flicks of birds landed and were hungry. I filled the big one wife and extra on the ground.

Today we go and pick up Carol. She just called and is at the airport already. She said it was a good visit with her Dad and glad she went. I know they had more snow north of us so we are leaving early.

Vicky prayers for you as you start back to work. ( if you have school today!)

Everything is closed here, even Rt. 62, just outside of Holly's town. I hope she finds another way home from work. As far as I can tell, we got about 8 inches...

My niece, Jenna was at Pittsburgh airport waiting on the plane to be de-iced before leaving for Dallas. Horrible weather...

Back to work tomorrow...unless they cancel...

God send blessings to you Vicky and to you Ann.

Ann glad to hear from you. You and Terry are in my prayers. I am glad he has good medical care. There are so many blessings in music. When you are there you touch the lives of so many people that are in need. Special blessings, Ann for your ministry.

It is good to hear that your mother has help so close. That is good news. You need a break and time to heal too. I hope your friends will come to visit.

We drove Carol up to the Latrobe Airport and she went in and then we went tot he music store in Greensburg. We waited around until she said she boarded because the weather was not good up there. She sent a message that she was boarding. So... We left and headed in the blowing snow for home. We got to our road and Carol called. She was off the plane and in the airport. The weather in Tampa was bad they couldn't land. She said don't come back as we will fly out in about another hour. She called at 6:45 pm and had made it to Tampa and was okay. That was a long day. God answers prayer. The weather was so bad last night I don't know if we could have made it back up Latrobe, Pa. to get her.

It is supposed to be spring now. That seems to have gone south. We have snow and expect about 4 more inches. Dave just called and they are open and working at the senior center. So now I know he got there okay.

Blessings today to all
Sue

My niece, Jessi is an LVN. She just moved back to Pa and is single. She's already got a new job, but hasn't started yet. She will be living with Mom for the time being. My nephew, Jeremy, lives up the road and has been looking after Mom&Dad for a few years, so he's close by, as is my brother. There are enough of us she'll probably never have a chance to be alone! LOL...

Don't know what Bob's plans are for the day, but mine are to veg out at home, and maybe see if Gail and Betsy would like to come over to visit. I need some girl time with my friends...

Have a blessed day, all...

Good morning all:

I have read back a bit to catch up in the postings from the month of March. First things first I want to send out my heartfelt sympathy to you Vicky at the passing of your Father. I am so sorry but I did love to read that he went to be with Jesus. What a comfort to know that. Your mom must be really going through it with her arm as well. I pray peace and rest over your family in Jesus name.

Sue, I hope you have travel mercies when driving your daughter Carol to the airport.

Terry went to the cardiologist last week and found out his blood pressure is low so they have taken him off of one medication. Since he had a heavy cold, the dr. wants to see him again in three months. He has had a cough for a month. He also keeps getting wounds and they take a while to heal. He has good days and frustrating days. Overall his attitude is good.

I am now an official volunteer at St. Joseph's Hospital, specifically Mount Hope. We do a hymn sing once a month and a bible study. We are also still going to the Retirement Home once a month for a hymn sing as well.

Over the winter I have gained weight. I have not weighed myself but I can feel it especially in my midriff bulge. More walking will happen when spring warms things up a bit.

Bye for now - keep the faith and keep strong in His love, Ann

Ann

Be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend. Give out grace to others and you will receive grace back.

Vicky your family is really working together. God keep your sister, Nancy and her husband safe and have strength to move back to Pa. it is nice that Sisler Angie willhwelp. You have a loving family. Prayers for your mother to heal. Having an arm not working is frustrating. You need arms for so many things. I had shoulder surgery and realized that was harder to keep up and get through the day than either of the leg surgeries. Getting food, getting dressed, and Just everything. Is she living alone now? She needs to have someone to move everyday things to where she can get them. I got pretty good with my left hand and arm.

Today Spring begins. I am hoping it really comes. We are driving my daughter Carol to Latrobe Airport. She is flying to Tampa to visit her Dad in the nursing home down there. We pick her up again on Thursday.

Prayers May the Lord be with you and strengthen you for all you have in your life today.
Blessings too!
Sue

Well Mom's doctor appointment went okay. They aren't going to have to do surgery or even cast it, but she does have to keep it in the sling(immobilizer) for 6 weeks. She goes back in a couple weeks so he can be sure. Sister, Nancy, is flying back to Texas to pack up her house. Sister, Angie, is heading down there on Thursday to help and then they'll be driving back together. Angie's husband, Roy, will be flying down to load up all her things into a Uhaul to bring them to Pa. Some guys from her church are going to help him load up. We're all having our own rough time. Bob and I went up to the cottage to make the beds and measure the roof for a new metal roof. Bob went to the local lumber yard and ordered it while we were in town. There was at least 6 inches of snow to go thru to get to the cottage door. I was not tempted to stay there at all...LOL...

Thanking God for your healing from that cough, Sue...

Visitation was tonight. Three of the longest hours ever. Tomorrow is the memorial and dinner. I think Mom & I are waiting for Monday, so we can fall apart. Basically, I think all of us are.

Too much crazy eating for me this last week. A donut and a bag of Doritos is not a meal...

I am managing to get some exercise, whether I mean to or not...

Praying for your friends...

Got a call from my brother the other night. My dad took another fall. He's been doing that quite frequently lately. The paramedics were called and Dad, being Dad, refused to go with them, until the one told him he may have had a stroke. He went to the ER and they found a large, deep blood clot on his brain, with blood pooling at the base of his brain. He was life flighted to Hamot in Erie. Mom, my sister, Angie and I drove up there and spent the night at the ICU. Basically, we're just waiting. He can't have surgery because he wouldn't make it through. He has a DNR, so no keeping him alive by artificial means. So we're waiting. He's been asleep since they got him to Hamot, moves very little. They're talking about bringing him home if they think he will survive the trip, it's quite a ways. We have 2 nurses in the family and hospice will be there. Mom is handling this okay. Please pray for all of us...

Monday!!! I am up early and heading out to exercise. I meet my friend Sandy at the gym. We have missed a week because of this cold and cough.

It has been cold but some sun. Today we are to see snow again. I need spring.

Plan a good week.

Thank you for the update on Audrey. God does answer prayer. Glad the headache went away.

Sounds like a good service and meal. We seem to eat a lot during lent. My daughter thinks I give up cooking for lent.

Today we went to the adult class held before the church service. Dave went too! That was a blessing. It is a study of CS Lewisí book ďThe Screwtape LettersĒ. It describes the work of Santins spirit helpers on us. How they work to get us away from God.

Today I am cooking Chili and putting in a pork roast. This week starts the busy life. We play Monday and Tuesday so the organ goes in and out of the house again.

Blessings to you today.

We have a special service at church today. YWAM of Boston has a presentation. Then a pot luck after. I made macaroni salad and a cherry cobbler. We'll see what I have to bring home. I'm still learning what this congregation likes...

Headache snuck up on me last night. So far, today it's gone...

Did I tell you that my cousin, Audrey, who was hit by the car, is home and doing well. She is sad though because a woman who came into the hospital after her, with the same type of injury died a couple of days ago. She had fallen on some ice. Please pray for her family...

Enjoy your Sunday, all...

Good news to hear from you Liz. Way to go! I was just reading about that diet. I also need to get outside and work on the flowers.

Vicky our roads have been bad. Spring has to come soon. Then you can get to your cottage. It sounds like such a nice place. Praying for you and the work place problem.


Today itís 22 degrees. We are going to meet some friends for lunch. Then we are going to the Home Show.

Hi guys! I'm on a ketogenic diet, so far so good. I'm down 9 lbs. I started doing spin classes woohoo! They kick my butt! Yes I'm ready for spring. We've worked on our gutters. Now our fence, our home has taken a beating from this weather! I have plans to straighten out our front yard, everything is so overgrown and hides the house. It's not very welcoming, although I like my flowers, they are messy and too crowded. Can't wait for warmer weather so we can get going. Work has been crazy! Alot of coming and going. So sorry for your loss, it's always so sad to see a loved one go. I've seen so many this year already. Have a great weekend!

:-)LIZ

Bob is just flipping over this weather! He wants to get up to the cottage and measure the roof so we can get started on putting a new one on. As it is, we probably couldn't get back the lane to the cottage... patience...

Weight is down again. Maybe I can behave myself this weekend nd start off next week with another loss... back and forth, back and forth...

More stress at work, but I'm not even going there... God is dealing with it.

Baby sister is heading back to Texas today. She found an apartment, had a couple job interviews, and found a home church. A month from now she will be moved back to Pa. for good. Yea!!!

I hope you all are having a lovely, relaxing day...

I am with you and ready for sunshine and flowers.

I drove to have lunch with my daughter today. She was at the Grafton office. That is about a 35 minute drive. We had a good visit and then I started home. Snow and winds all the way home. I am glad to be here.

We had a great turnout for soup and salad at church last night. More people each week. My group was in charge of the soups and bread and set up. We also had clean up. My husband just took over the dishes. He rinsed and we filled the dishwasher. Then the things left he washed ad I rinsed and we had a friebpnd that helped dry and put away. The other men just stood around and talked. One of the ladies told me to tell him thanks. They are older than I am and would not be able to do it all.

Hope you donít catch what is going around. I have the cough still. I am feeling better.

At my doctor appointment she and I talked about the pounds we drop and get back and take off again. It is a never ending problem. She said people that fast break the problem. When you fast it kills cancer cells and lets the good cells get healthy. She said studies of religious groups that maintain a plan of fasting are shown to do better at weight control and maintain good health. She is looking into a program like that for her practice. She said by this summer she may be ready.

Stay wasnít and safe.
Sue

I was on register today. I don't like being on register. Betsy has a horrible sore throat. Carol came down to serve and she does a great job. I hope they put her in my position after I leave.

Glad things are settled for your teachers. It's hard when things are up in the air like that.

My weight is back up a couple of pounds again...boy oh boy...

I woke up to 3-4 inches on my car this morning. I'm ready for the flowers, how about you???

Just a quick note.

Teachers and school are back to work. All School employees got a 5 % raise.

About time the state recognized the need for the pay raise. It has been promised for years. It still doesn't get their pay up to the cost of living here

Have a good day all.

At my doctor apt. We talked about how many time we drop a pound or two and gained back and took them off again. She told me she is looking into a program that includes fasting. They found religious persons that fast reset the metabolism and it also destroyed cancer cell. It promotes the good cells. I told her to call me when she had more information.


I rearranged the kitchen cabinets over the stove. I have to stand on a step stool to get to them so now they are empty. Feeling better today.

I've taken a couple of personal days at work. My sister is home from Texas and we're going apartment hunting and job hunting for her. I'm just happy to be away from the drama of my job for a couple of days, although I will say, last week I pretty much avoided it. God is merciful!

Dropped a couple of pounds, too, so I'm headed in the right direction. I'm just tired of losing the same ones I've lost so many times before... How are you all doing?

Prayers for you. I know how difficult this can be.

I caught the cold and cough that is going around. So... I am staying home today. I did sleep some last night. The two cats got me up at 5:30 am. I fed them and just coughed for a while.

Tomorrow I weigh in at the doctorís appointment. I am glad I am going and hope spherical can give me something for this stuff.

Blessings to yo today. Sue

My clothes are fitting me weird this morning. Even my shoes feel tight! I guess if I had my way, I'd be wearing my lazy pants (as my granddaughter calls them) all the time. My jeans are sliding down my hips, (and not in a good way), my socks are pulling on my toes, and my bra feels like the straps are twisted. I think I'm just easily agitated today because I don't want to go to this funeral. This brother and I don't get along very well and I'm tense every time he's around. I usually manage to stay away from him at other family functions. But this is his mother in law's funeral...so...here goes...

Sun is shining but it's still cold...

Oh! Nice to have your sister back. Sorry for the loss of sf brotherís mother in law. You have a busy weekend.

I pushed all week now I have a break today. We have a few errands to run. Now a lot.

Our neighbors about a mike up the road has a farm market. They sent out for people to join to receive vegetables all summer. It was not too expensive to get a box every other week. There is just the two of us so a box each week would be too much. I was going to plant more this year but the time and cost is a bit much. I really donít have the strength to get too much done. We are getting the every other week box. We can also pick up more of things we like as we go. I will still plant butternut squash and zucchini. I want to make zucchini relish and butternut squash harvest soup to can for winter.

You will see family and friends at the funeral. That is good. That seems to be were I see people lately too.

Prayers and blessings to you?
Sue

My sister is home from Texas for a visit and to get a job and apartment lined up for when she moves back in April. Big changes for her, but I'm so glad she's home...

My car was covered with snow and frozen shut this morning. It's almost gone now...

Funeral tomorrow for my brother's mom in law. Not much else planned for the weekend...

Teachers are out again today. They are really upset that the insurance was not addressed. If you get a raise and the insurance cost takes it all you are not getting raise. Also, our WV delegates are paid as well as 5th in the nation and our teacher pay is 48th.

Yes we have light snow falling but not heavy It is about 40 degrees outside. Not too bad.

It is Friday so get ready to enjoy the weekend. I have pushed to get my house and extra done to have some time off just relaxing, Well, today I have a very sore throat. i have an appointment with my doctor already on Monday, So for my yearly check up I will be going in with a sore throat and runny nose. I guess that is a good thing.

Wonderful that the issue at work is not bothering you now. It is hard to go to work each day with a problem there.

What a great husband. Mine doesn't paint much. He will build tings but I paint inside the house. I still have more to do but we set up our music this week. We are scheduled for 2 homes week after next. Some come to practice before the meeting.

I am going to exercise Mondays and Thursdays. With the meeting tomorrow Sandy will meet me at 9:30 am One lady is ill and she usually came at 11 am so I can do this time. I am walking better with the exercise.

You are having a problem with carbs Well, last night was Kiwanis and we eat at the restaurant before the meeting. Tonight is lent soup supper and we eat at church before the service. Friday is fish dinner at the St. Mary's church about a mile from us and it is good. My problem with lent is the food that is always in front of me. I can't wait for summer to be able to work outside. I need to get away from food ......

Beautiful outside today. Good day at work, even though the devil tried his hardest to distract me with all the drama. God is perfectly capable of taking care of the situation. After all, I gave Him the situation anyway...

I've been carb craving this week. These last 2 days I've had a small bagel with light cream cheese on break. I need to get back to protein and fruit...

Bob has my hallway completely done. After the animals and I went to bed, he painted the stairs. They look so nice!

Enjoy this day, all.

I hope this strike is worth their while. They deserve so much more. Today was kinda stressful. I try to take a step back from it all. I can say, "Not my circus, not my monkeys," but just because I'm part of the audience, that doesn't mean I have to be part of the show...

It is so beautiful out today...

They are to interested in getting on the money train and the interest of business that help pay to get them elected. Our teachers will be out again tomorrow.

Glad you are feeling better. Headaches leave me tired.

More rain today and tomorrow but we may have some sunshine on Monday afternoon.

I gained the week we were gone and still have 4 pounds to get off before my doctor apt. Next month.

We just need to hang in there together and keep on keeping on!!!
