Missy, I'm with you, I hope that Melissa is doing some swimming for all of us. It was nice of Papa Bear to help the neighbor, but as you said, it's too hot for that kind of work.

Susi, I'm glad to hear that Greg is behaving himself! As always, the race day menu sounds good. Speaking of food, that's sweet of you to replenish your dad's snacks!

It was a nice, quiet day here today. Jimmy went out and watered. I stayed in and did laundry. I also did the treadmill and watched General Hospital.

I hope that everyone enjoys the last of the weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie, we got to 97 yesterday but at least the humidity was only 57%. Can you believe Greg didn't go out and work in the yard yesterday?? He did go out about 8 p.m. and do some watering so that wasn't bad.

I'm glad you and Jimmy made it to the fair. Greg and I don't go to ours anymore unless there is something spectacular going on. Other than that it's pretty much the same every year and getting boring for us. LOL!

I'm making Hot Taco Rice for the race today. :) I haven't made it for a while and suggested it yesterday and he was great with that. Hehe!

Missy, I do agree this weather is not for physical work outside! I was glad Greg stayed in yesterday. Today it's supposed to get to 90 around 1 so I'm hoping if he works out there he does it this morning before it gets too hot.

Cleaning today then I need to go and get stuff to replenish dad's snacks. He goes through them so fast, even more so than before.

HUGS!

Hello Ladies!!!
Hot and humid here too! Crazy, but better than snow!!!

Auntie Cyndie... so glad you were able to walk to the back Friday! Even happier to read you and Jimmy went to the fair! Hope you had a wonderful time!!! Very smart with the frozen water bottles. We always do that too.

Susi... hoping Greg is being good and NOT staying out in this humidity to long! Papabear helped our neighbor with moving wood logs, and they were pooped right away! Too hot to be doing that stuff! Good girl keeping an eye on him! Hey, at least with the race, that means he's indoors (wink).

Saw on my QOTD that Melissa was so happy to receive a birthday card from her nephew. I'm so glad he keeps in touch with her!! Hope she is going well and doing some swimming for me (hee hee).

Well, wanted to pop in and say hello. Hope you all had a good Saturday. Have a great rest of your weekend!

HUGS

Susi, did it get hot and humid there? Did you have to duct tape Greg to keep him in the house? Inquiring minds want to know!

Jimmy and I did get to the fair today. I confess, I put 3 bottles of water in the freezer. I snuck them in my purse. It's important to stay hydrated! (winking face)

As always, I'm eager to hear the race day menu. Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Missy, I'm so sorry to hear about your email again. :( It just doesn't make sense that keeps happening. I've heard so many people complain about comcast.

Greg stuck to his word last night and wasn't out that long. :) He worries me all the time. If I had a nickle for every time I jumped up and peeked out the window to check on him so far this year I would be on my way to being rich.

It doesn't sound weird about going outside to warm up. I've done that before myself. :) Sometimes it's so hard to get the ac at just the right temperature.

Cyndie I'm so glad you got to walk to the bank! :) I hope it doesn't get to 95 for you today so maybe you and Jimmy can enjoy going to the fair. It's supposed to be hot and humid here again today so I may need some duct tape to keep Greg in the house. LOL!

HUGS!

Susi, I do agree with you, I hope that TJ won't have your dad out to that party. It's way too hot and humid for that! And speaking of hot and humid, I'm glad that you're taking of yourself. Good luck on keeping Greg under control!

Missy, your projects certainly sound ambitious! I'm exhausted just reading about them! When it comes to your cubs, since they're athletes, I guess they're used to being out in the elements. Speaking of being outside, I'm glad you were able to warm up!

I got to walk to the bank today, so I was happy about that. Our county fair started tonight. It's supposed to be 95 degrees here tomorrow, so I doubt that Jimmy and I will go,

Hoping that everyone enjoys their weekend!

Hugs!

That Greg!!! What are we going to do with him!!! I'm sure you are still keeping an eye on him. Good luck!!!

Guess who's email is down again... gggrrrr!!! Don't even get me started!!! I'm SO annoyed! I was just sitting here crying... I'm so sick of it!

I did try to log into my *@#%$ Comcast account, but can't do that either. A message says "try again later"... gggrrrr. &*+$%@*&#$@!!*&%^#@$

I know this sounds REALLY weird, but I actually went outside today to "warm up", hee hee. I'm out for like a minute, but I was getting cold. I'm NOT complaining at all, just happy I had to go get the mail, put something in my car, check on my garden... you know, hee hee.

Hope you all are staying cool too!
Again, good luck with Greg!!! Oh, and have fun Thursday!

It's a shame OC got drenched yesterday like that. I guess it's part of the job though. :(

Greg did a little straightening up in the garage today so that wasn't too bad. He kept mentioning that if he stayed in the shade to do some weeding it would probably be okay. :( I finally just said it's up to you. He didn't do it. :)

I guess some people just can't comprehend that you can get sun stroke even if you are in the shade. *heavy sigh*

You do have a lot of plans for the summer with all the organizing and painting. I know it will look great when you finish! :)

TJ called a few minutes ago and she is having a little graduation party for Alec at the park next Thursday evening. She didn't mention if she was taking dad out to go or not, but I would hope she wouldn't. She said she was having pizza, chips and pop.

Hugs!

~~~ Greg couldn't take it any longer and went out to do a little yard work. :( At least he won't be out there long, we usually eat around 5.~~~

Morning ladies!
No photo book yesterday, but it was okay. I worked on other things that helped us out (mostly cleaning).

Like Susi, we are VERY humid and going into the 90's today! This whole weekend will be climbing and the humidity through the roof! They are talking 100+ temps next week!!!

We got the pouring rain ALL day yesterday and evening! T-storms too. Older Cub does Valet at a near by hospital, and was soaked by the end of the day! ALSO, the president of the hospital was having a fund raiser party at his house, so they worked there at night too. It was a long day for him in that rain.

BUT, this morning the sun is shining and it was already HOT at 7am!!! Thank-you God for AC!!! Hope you all stay cool... especially people like GREG who are stubborn and will go out in this!

Auntie Cyndie... so happy you were able to go for your walk, and I hope you can today too. Hope it's just warm there and not this crazy heat and humidity!!! Stay safe also!

Susi... thank-you for the lesson on TJ's family, hee hee. I remembered she had her children young, just forgot what everyone's names were. I will forget this all again (who's who), sorry... hee hee.

Glad you are being a good girl and staying in, in this heat! Praying Greg will too! He just might have to! Have fun going through your clothes! I did that not to long ago... and my shoes too. I still have more to do and organize and will be doing it all next month! I want to pain my closet and clean it all up! I took down shelves and stiff, so looks yucky right now. Also Papabear changed my doors like 10 years ago and they never were painted or anything. I want to clean it all up and look nice! The two hall closets are on my list too (wink).

Hope you ladies are having a good day! Stay cool! Lots of water!!! Especially Greg if he's outside!!! I'll check back later!

TTFN ladies...

Missy, no need to be sorry. :) I know it's hard to keep things straight. Here's a quick run down...

TJ had Dawn when she was 15 and Melissa when she was 17. Dawn had Trent and Courtney with her first husband, Melissa had Alec with her boyfriend and Trent and Megan have Ollie. Kelly and Kyle are like me and Greg without any. :)

Cyndie, I originally figured I'd make her pay me back out of dad's estate, but now that there won't be any, I figure if she still wants the guns I will make her pay me back before she gets them. If not, I keep the guns, maybe give some to Kelly and Kyle, ask Trent if he wants any and keep the rest. One of her things was she never wanted Trent to have any of them.

At one point she somehow got Uncle Terry to "loan" her 1k, and she never paid him back. He knows he won't get it either. Kelly flat out told her not to ask him since TJ doesn't like him at all and makes no bones about it. Uncle Terry talked to dad about it and he advised against it, but he did it anyway. :(

I hope you were able to walk to the bank today. It's going to be miserable here! It's nice out right now, but supposed to get to 90 with a UV of 10 and a 99% humidity. :( After we visit dad today I'm staying in!! I only hope I can get Greg to stay in too.

Since I'll be in I'll probably finally go through my clothes to get rid of. I haven't done that for a long time again and I have a lot of them I don't wear anymore. It's really getting out of hand!

HUGS!

Susi, it's unfortunate that you don't think TJ will ever pay you back (sad face). Since you've had a lifetime of dealing with her, I guess you have the right mindset.

Missy, I'm glad to hear that the family dinner went well. As we all say, making memories is important! I hope that you were able to work on your photo books!

It was a beautiful, sunny day here, so I was able to get a walking break in. I'm hoping to walk to the bank tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, it's her grandson, but she likes to tell everyone she raised him. Melissa, her daughter is Alec's mother and he doesn't like to be around her, she's bipolar and won't take meds TJ went through scouts with him to all his functions, yadda, yadda, yadda.

He was originally wanting to move to Washington, state, because that's where his girlfriend is, no clue what happened with that.

I pray your cubs stay close to home. It doesn't have to be in the same town but close enough so you can visit often.

I'm glad dinner went well and everyone enjoyed it. :) The garden sounds really nice. :)

Have fun on your photo books!

Morning ladies...

Auntie Cyndie, we have your rain coming through right now! Supposed to be all day and VERY humid! Next week we are supposed to be in the upper 90's and hitting 100 too! Happy start of July! hee hee

There are lots of people from my church that do things like your boss does. But that is because they are retired and still can. I guess it's the same with him... but the retired part! When I'm in my 80's I hope I can do things to help others like that!!!

Susi... Imagine that, a falling out with her son, hummmm.... didn't see that happening (hee hee). Well good luck to him! Hope he has a good plan before he picks up everything and goes. He must have to move FAR to get away from her apron strings, hee hee.

I should be nice. It's gonna be hard. I worry all the time that my cubs make the right choices. And in my perfect world, they would stay close to me, but you never know. Just because I love staying where I am, and near all I grew up with, doesn't mean they do too.

Dinner with the in-laws was nice. The cubs came and I think they enjoyed themselves too, so that was good. They enjoyed dinner and then we did a cake back at their house. She was all excited to show us her garden. She's doing a great job with it!

With these rains all day, I think I'm gonna stay in and just relax! Maybe start my 2017 photo books! I'm excited to start them, so...

Hope you all have a good day! I'll be back later. TTFN...
Hugs

Missy, I hope dinner with the inlaws went well last night. Are things any better between you and MIL? That's something hard for me to relate to since I had the best MIL in the world. :) She was more like a mother to me than my own was. Sad but true.

I'm glad YC helped out with the yard and the "pig". When is your "real" vacation coming up?

Cyndie, I doubt TJ will ever finish paying me back, that is until she wants the guns when something happens to dad. I may give them to her AFTER she FINISHES paying me back in full.

Of course Greg said she may not want them now because she and Alec had a falling out. Now that he's 18 he's working on finally cutting the apron strings with her. Hehe! He's saving money to move to Louisiana, of all places and she doesn't want him to do that. You know how 18 year olds are. :)

It does seem funny when an elderly person is delivering meals to an old person. :) I guess at least that keeps most of them busy and they're not just sitting around feeling sorry for themselves.

HUGS!

Missy, Susi and I sure appreciate you educating us! Like her, I didn't know the name of those big, ugly ear piercings. I can never understand how stuff like that gets started! That "friendly" soccer game sounds like a good time!

Susi, you are just full of good news! I'm happy to hear that you got paid back for the flowers already, and you had a good visit with your dad! If only you could get TJ to start working on her old debt, that would be the icing on the cake!

I admit, I get a kick out of my boss, delivering meals to "the old folks". It rained here most of the day, so I wasn't able to get out for a walking break. Hoping that everyone had a happy Hump Day!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Susi, glad your visit was nice with your Daddy! I'm sure that was what it was about with his leg. It makes it hard for you, but I can so understand. I always felt bad leaving my Memere. Now I wish I spend more time...aaaahhhhh.... anywho.

That puppy and the "flip" was cute!

Just finished cleaning the house. Got Little Cub to mow the lawn and clean the pig. It feels good to have it all done.

Tonight we are going to dinner with my in-laws. Still had to get together with him for Father's Day (they were camping so we didn't see him) and Saturday is my MIL's birthday. So dinner out it is (wink). Should be a good night.

Okay, time to do some exercises...
Have a good afternoon ladies!

Missy, dad was good again today! :) We were talking about him going fishing again and started talking a lot about when he would take us and the one on one trips and such. I do believe he really enjoyed going back like that with me. :) But when we were ready to leave he started complaining about his leg bothering him. It does all the time though, I think he was trying to keep us there longer.

I feel that way about the posts too and getting a cold. LOL! And I wonder about eating. Hmm? To each his own I guess.

I'm sure it did feel nice, the feeling of having a daughter. :) Yes, keep those toe nails good for the flip flops.

Speaking of them...I saw a cute thing on facebook with a little puppy laying beside one. It said I ate your flip so all you have left is your flop. LOL! Kind of cute. :)

HUGS!

Good afternoon!

Susi... hope your Daddy was in a good mood today! I'm very happy everyone... even TJ... paid you back already! That's a Blessing!

I think those "things" they put in the holes in their ears are "gages", so I call them that. Not sure if I'm right or wrong, but the cubs have never corrected me, so must be right, hee hee.

It's funny, I noticed lots of the people, my friends (not close friends) are getting nose piercings at our age. Not sure if that's the new thing, or trying to still be young?!!? Some people look okay with a little post in, but I'd hate to have one and get a cold... hee hee.

I guess people could say the same things with my tattoos, so I shouldn't talk, right?!!

The rain is coming Thursday for us. Down pours, t-storms, etc. We'll see if it all really happens. BUT we could use the rain for sure!

I went with my girlfriend's daughter to get my nails down. Well she did her finger nails and I did my toes. Have to look good in my flip flops! (wink) It was nice just us two. It was like I had a daughter for once, hee hee. Good morning/afternoon!

Hope you all are having a good day! TTFN...

Cyndie, dad was good yesterday and we're going again today to get back on track. So today will probably be grump day.

Yes! I was surprised that TJ handed me the money right away! I told Greg she can do that but not even pay me $5 a month on what she still owes me. :( Kelly paid me too. So all is well. :)

Missy, I didn't know what the big ear holes were called, thank you. :) I'm glad your cubs don't like them. I'm sure there will be a time when the ones that have them will be sorry they do. I'm sure not fond of any face or tongue piercings either. Guess I'm old. LOL!

I like they had a soccer game just for practice like that. :) Congratulations to YC for the 2 scores! I'm glad the V coach was there to see him play. :)

I hope your appointment goes well today.

We had a good bit of rain come though last night, some thunder but we didn't see any lightening. It wasn't bad out but it dropped about 20 degrees and ended up being 68 last night.

HUGS!

Good evening ladies...

Susi... congrats to Greg with Truex's win! That's awesome!!! He must of been so happy. Good to have some good news with the weekend you both had.

At least both of my cubs don't like those gages/piercings either!! I think I'm safe there! I just don't see how that is nice looking... sorry!

That HUGE truck going through town would of had all three of my guys in heaven! hee hee. They LOVE stuff like that! We had one not too long ago bringing something from Canada to the south... I think. We didn't see it in person, but on the news. Was a Transformer or something.

Auntie Cyndie... I CAN'T KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES, hee hee. It's crazy!
Your boss is 82?!? That's great! Good for him. Love he's a sweetheart! Again, so happy you found a nice job like this!

Tonight Little Cub had a "friendly" soccer game. They didn't have refs, or keep a score. Just for the players to have game/practice time with other schools. It was a good game. He scored twice. The Varsity coach is there and watching, so it was good for him to see how Little Cub has improved.

Hope you all have a good night. I think I'm gonna watch more of the world cup with Papabear.

Oh, I have an appointment tomorrow morning, so I might not make it here. If I don't, don't worry, I'm all good!

Good night ladies!

Missy, congratulations on sleeping in until 9 am! I'm going to enjoy that through you! As for Younger Cub, I agree with you. Young people are different these days, and I'm trying to keep up with the times.

Susi, congratulations to Greg on the Truex victory! I know that it can't compare to what's going on in your real life, but still, it's good news! How was your visit with your dad today? Did you get the money for the flowers?

You ladies are right about my boss. He is 82 and a real sweetie. As you've said, it's good when self-employed people use their time to benefit others!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy I'm glad you were able to sleep in after 8 today. :) There's no way I could have stayed up that late. LOL!

No more day trips right away. They wait till about 2 days before and ask them They like to try to get different people out for different things. :) He didn't catch any fish, at least that's what he said, but I know 2 of the ladies did. :) They catch and release. :)

Yes, Greg watched his race Sunday night when we got home and his favorite, Martin Truex won!! :) emoticon

I am doing better today. It's I'm happy for Deb that she isn't in pain anymore and can walk and enjoy her reward. :) It's just getting through the "good-byes" that's so hard. :(

Oh yea, some of those piercings. Ewwwwwwww! My cousin, Dan's youngest son, not so young now though, has both his ears pierced with huge ring holes, it's so ugly!! What's up with that anyway? :( If your cubs ever did that I would personally come and kick their rears!

I just looked out the window and the sky is getting dark, it's fixin' to rain. Yesterday we had a HUGE semi come through our main street with very big equipment on it heading for W.VA. They had to raise the street lights it was so big! It was over 200 ft. long and bottomed out on our Main St. Hill! They had to bring in big trucks to get it un-stuck.

Good luck to YC and the team at the game tonight!

HUGS!

Good morning. I slept in till 9am. That was nice! My cubs went to the drive-in last night, so got home around 1am, so I was tired waiting up for them. I'm sure older cub will be wiped... he had to get up for work this morning... Little Cub is still sleeping! hee hee

Susi... hoping your visit with your daddy goes well. Like you said, I'm sure he misses you, so hopefully all should be good! Any day trips for him planned again?!? Did you say last one was a fishing trip? Did he catch anything?

Hope you are doing okay after your big emotional day yesterday! HUGS!
Did Greg watch his race yet? Hope it was a good race!

Yes, the blond is a change, but I think I'm getting used to it already. It's just hair, so all is good. I remember putting peroxide in mine and sitting in the sun! It worked, but not quick enough for me, hee hee. I think he's the same way. Our hair dresser gave him some spray in stuff that was working, but not as quick as he wanted, so he went to a place in the mall. We are only kids ones, so. I'm just happy it wasn't some piercing. Some of those I just couldn't handle.

I agree with Susi, that is VERY nice of your boss to help with meals on wheels! Love when people like that give time to help too! I know a lot in our church (who own businesses) and give back in many ways! God Bless him!

Hope you have a good day at work today Auntie Cyndie!

Today is running errands... bank, Wal-mart, dump (with little cub), and maybe Auto Zone for a new battery for my Jeep. It doesn't need one, but Papabear doesn't know when it was changed (since we bought it used), and wants to make sure it's a new one in the vehicle.

It's a beautiful day out again, but I know the humidity, rain, and thunder storms are coming possibly Wednesday or Thursday. Little Cub has a soccer game tonight, so at least it should be nice for that! They had one Thursday too,but that got canceled, which is good.

Hello Melissa, if you are out there! I know you keep coming to check out the QOTD and post your exercise. Miss you!!!

Have a good day ladies! I'll check in later! (hugs)

Missy, I'm so glad YC made it home safely! Wow on the change in his hair! That will take a good while to get use to. My preference for him is the dark hair, I like it much better, but he still looks okay with the blonde.

Cyndie, that sure sounds like the perfect work day to me! Glad you all could do it. :) So the older boss delivers meals on wheels. :) That is so nice of him to give his time like that. I know when dad was getting it at home, it was truly appreciated. :) She even called me one day when he fell and waited with him till we got there. :)

Speaking of dad, we will visit with him today. I think he will be in a good mood because we haven't been there since Friday. Seems he usually is when we are gone longer. Hehe!

HUGS!

Susi, that's nice of you to use a photo of Debbie as your profile photo. Funerals are such sad occasions. The only good part is seeing those relatives we don't see often enough.

Missy, I'm eager to see photos of Younger Cub. Kids will be kids! Wow, I can't believe the bear sightings. And when it comes to bears, I'm glad that your cub is back home safe!

It was a great day at work. My younger boss is on vacation. We had a cookout. We cooked, ate, watched Perry Mason and had everything cleaned up before the older one got in from Meals on Wheels!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Susi... great new photo of your cousin Deb! HUGS!
Glad you had a "good" day today. (As good as a funeral can be) At least you stay with the younger ones and TJ stayed away!!

I'll post a picture of YC when I get it off my camera. He looks like he's on his way home now, so he's safely off the mountain. It actually has been a perfect weather day. Nice out, breezy, and not too hot!

I'm sure you were ready for your nap. Glad you are resting after these last few busy days you have had! HUGS

Missy, it was a very emotionally draining day today. The service was very lovely and the pastor did a really nice talk. He didn't just quote from the bible, he talked about his personal experiences with Deb, and at times made us laugh and other times cry, good of course.

Steve her brother talked and did the same thing. Most of the stuff he said I remember from childhood. The final good bye was especially hard. :(

The young man I "saved" was my attorney cousin. Hehe! TJ had talked down to him so many times over the years it's a wonder he didn't tell her to take a hike, but that's the kind of man he is, a gentleman. :)

Her daughter, Dawn, who doesn't talk to her got someone to take her place at work at the last minute so she could come. She and Deb were close. Courtney, her daughter and Trent, Megan and Oliver came with her. Megan stayed out from the front of the room because she had Ollie and TJ was there. They sat in the back.

At the meal they all were in there, right at a table inside the door, and TJ and Kelly were already there. TJ and Kelly sat with some of my cousin's on the other side of the room and Greg and I sat with the kids. Kelly finally came to see Ollie, but I'm sure glad TJ didn't, they don't want her around him, and I understand that.

I guess Aunt Pauline told Dawn that TJ told her she and I were "tight" again. ROFL!! I told Dawn I was civil to her but only because of dad. She said she figured that and had asked Aunt Pauline in which lifetime. Hehe!! All in all it was a very nice meal and a lot of folks were there too. :)

When we got home, of course right out of our good clothes and Greg headed outside, I headed for a nap.

I guess we're supposed to heat up again towards the end of the week with the high humidity too. :( It sounds like you had quite the busy weekend.

YC blonde??? I want to see a pix of that! I loved him with the dark hair. I'm sure that's quite a change! Like you said though, I'm so glad it wasn't something really crazy! Wow on the bear sightings! I hope YC and the friends stayed safe on their hike!

HUGS!

Morning ladies!

Susi... You are in my thoughts and prayers today. I'm sure it was a long day yesterday. I'm glad you had some good moments too with family you haven't seen in a while. I think that is why it gets so loud, maybe families only see each other at weddings and funerals. HUGS!

Oh, and VERY nice of you to save that young man from listening to TJ!!!

When you have time, we'll have to see a picture of your lighter blonder hair!!! When you have a change. I know today will be busy. Thinking of you!!! God Bless.

On another note, I saw that picture of your Dad on FB and loved it! I'm glad he enjoyed his day out!!!

Auntie Cyndie... The bracelet is beautiful!!! Thank-you Jimmy for helping her post a picture for us to see, hee hee. Great job on staying in your calories too, for lunch! Good girl!! Hope you had a nice relaxing weekend! Hoping this week goes well for you!!!

Our weekend was off and on rain... and down pours!!! Today the sun is out and the heat and humidity are creeping in as the week will go on. Gonna be a hot one! I won't complain!! It's not that white *rap, so I'm happy!!! hee hee.

We cut down some dead branches on our front tree, Papabear worked (again) on the car's brakes! This time it worked! Cleaned up the house and yard, talked with neighbors, Food shopping... pretty boring, but like Cyndie, it's okay with me!

Speaking of blond... did I ever tell you last week Little cub bleached his hair blond?!!? It was so funny... our neighbor saw it for the first time and was shocked, hee hee. Same with people at church. He served this Sunday, so everyone saw him, hee hee. I'll have to post a before and after picture. I think I'm getting use to it now. I was just happy it wasn't a nose ring for those gage earrings... I can handle blond hair.

Last exciting things happening around us... the city near us, they had 3 bear spottings! One was a road near where it goes into our town, so pretty close. Keeping my eye out for them and I'm not refilling my bird feeders yet.

Little Cub went to go hike today with his friends up our biggest mountain in our state, Hoping they are safe and see no animals!!! I'm happy he's with three friends that hike all the time with their family. Like Cyndie, I'm not a huge outdoors lady, so we hardly hike! hee hee Hoping he has fun though.

I think that is it for boring you all, hee hee.
Susi... prayers
Auntie Cyndie... hoping you have a good day!
Melissa & Pam... hello!!!

Have a good day ladies!

Thank you for the prayers and thoughts Cyndie. :) Today we go for the service at the funeral home then to the church to eat.

Last night I found out too much information about a couple of the family members. :( And there were a lot of people from the church who came. It got so loud in there a couple of times I was on the verge of an anxiety attack. :( I felt like I was in a tin box with an echo machine. You would think people would talk more quietly at something like that out of respect.

I did get tickled at my cousin Brian Hehe! TJ caught him and was talking to him, not bad, but I know he doesn't like her. She kept him "captive" for over 5 minutes. I told Greg, I think it's time to rescue him. LOL!

I tapped him on the shoulder and he turned around and hugged me so tight I thought I would stop breathing and he said, thank you about 5 times in a row. LOL! I got hugs last night from so many family members that I hardly see, it was amazing. :) It was a very long day though. :( I'm sure today will be too.

HUGS!

Susi, fishing with your dad does sound like a good time. making memories is so important! I'm not an outdoor person, but Jimmy used to take Kim fishing when she was little. You're probably right about those cane poles!

I'm glad that you like your hair. That's the most important thing!

I know that today was a long day for you and your family. You're in my thoughts and prayers!

Hugs!

Cyndie, that is one beautiful bracelet!! Jimmy did a great job picking it out! :) It was nice of him to take the picture for you so we could see it! :)

I'm sure dad had a good time fishing. :) He use to take us all the time. Mostly one on one, but he did take TJ and I at the same time when we were little. You know, back in the day when the cane poles were still around. LOL! I don't think they even make them anymore.

My hair came out a little lighter than I'm use to but it does look good. It did cover most of the silver but I did see some that it didn't quite get to. It blended well though. :)

Greg was outside most of yesterday, I did things in the house most of the time. So we both did have a good day. It's so nice to go to lunch like that. :) Congratulations on staying in your calorie range!

Today is the viewing for Debbie from 2-4 and 6-8, so Greg will have to dvr the race. He's just going to get subs for us to eat in between the hours. When it's family we always go to all the viewing times to help with support. Tomorrow at 10:30 is the funeral, they will have it at the funeral home then we'll go to Aunt Pauline's for a while.

HUGS!

That lasgna sounds good. I'm going to have to make some soon!

Hopefully, you and Greg had a nice day today. Jimmy and I did go out for lunch, but I managed to stay within my calorie range.

Speaking of food, what's on the race day menu tomorrow? Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Bummer on not being able to walk to the bank. :( I don't think anyone can eat spark friendly all the time if they say they do or not LOL! I sure know I can't!

I made lasagna yesterday with garlic bread and we have enough left over for today too with a side salad.

Today I'm going to color my hair. They didn't have what I always use but a new formula that is supposed to cover even the gray in blond! I sure hope that works, that would be great! :) I think it may be just a tad lighter than what my hair is though, we'll see.

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that you had to share the sad news about your Cousin Debbie with your dad. On the other hand, I'm glad to hear that he understood everything.

Missy, I hope that you enjoyed the first Friday of your summer vacation, and I hope that you and the Bear Family have a great summer!

It rained here today again, so I didn't get to walk to the bank. My co-workers and I had a carry-in lunch. It wasn't Spark-friendly, but I enjoyed it!

So far, I don't have any plans for the weekend. As usual, I'm good with that. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Missy, it went well telling dad about Deb. He was sad but said he was glad she was at peace now even if she was too young. :) I told him I wasn't taking him to the funeral home cause we would be gone too long and he was completely fine with that. I will give them his sympathy though and I put his name on the flowers when I ordered them.

I'm glad you have the extra vehicles for when something like the brakes happen. I'm sure YC was okay with not having his own transportation. :)

Unfortunately not every health thing is a really easy fix, although I wish yours was. You will know the right thing to do when it comes time. If you feel like talking about it you know we are here for you as much as you are for us. :)

I hope you got to work on your pictures today and were able to relax.

Morning ladies!
Seems like 8:30am is going to be my Summer wake up time, hee hee. I get up and clean up the kitchen, make my breakfast and come here. (wink)

Auntie Cyndie... so happy you were able to get that walk in yesterday before the rain. I do love the smell of rain coming in the Summer months. Sorry, not sure why I said that, hee hee. Hoping, like Susi said, you are able to walk to the bank and stay dry!!! hee hee.

Any plans for your weekend? Hanging with friends at IHOB, hee hee, or seeing Kim, hanging with Jimmy? Whatever you do, hope it's a great relaxing weekend!

Susi... so sorry you have to be the one to tell your Dad about your Aunt. Hoping all goes well, or as well as it can in a situation like this. Hoping he's in a good mood too and it doesn't ruin it!

Yes, Papabear will send the vehicles to the shop for lots of things too, for the same reasons you said. But if he can do it, he does to save money. He finished it pretty quickly, and took it for a test drive and it smoked and seemed like he had the e-brake on. So he spent his night on YouTube seeing why and figured it out. So he took the truck into work this morning and Little Cub is with out a car. Well, he has me and sleeps 1/2 of the day and also has all his friends for rides, so he'll be just fine car-less today. Papabear will fix it tonight.

I would of ask one of my good friends to come to my doctor's appointment... the one who is a nurse/or was before her fall. BUT she is in Mexico visiting her parents till after the 4th of July, so I went a lone. I did get on FB and was messaging her all night and am feeling better, some?!!?

I was just stupid and got myself excited this could be an easy fix, and it isn't. But you would think I'd know that, but I didn't listen to my inner self and well... anywho, it could be so much worst and I'm probably making more of it because of the unknown and my non-knowledge of medical terms, hee hee. Again, I'll look at my glass half full like Melissa always does! I'll be fine!

Not much on the plans for today... which is good. Little Cub is home, for once (hee hee... he's always on the go), so hanging with him will be nice. maybe relaxing and doing some of my picture book?!?! well see... Hoping you all have a good day! Happy Friday!!!

TTFN... (hugs)

Missy I hope Papabear got the brakes fixed okay. That's one thing a person can't do without! Greg won't work on our vehicles anymore, he takes them to the shop. Everything is so packed in tight and so many electronics in them anymore you just about have to have a degree to fix them. :(

Greg and I always go to the doc's with each other just for that reason. We're always afraid that we'll forget something important and that way if we do then the other usually remembers. There are times though that I'd just rather go alone if it's only a check up, but he's always too glad to go with me. LOL!

I hope OC can get his MRI soon and get it over with to find out what's up.

Cyndie, we'll be visiting with dad today and I'm always the one who gets stuck telling him bad news, so I'll have to tell him about Deb. :( After we leave there we'll order the flowers and pick up a refill on my meds. After that who knows. LOL! I'll probably work on the zipper a little more.

I'm so glad you got that walk in before the rain. I hope it's nice enough out today for your walk to the bank. It's only 65 here right now with a high of 74 for today, but we have a 100% humidity. :(

HUGS!

Susi, I am so sorry to hear about your cousin. She is gone way too soon! On a happier note, I'm glad that your dad had a good time at the volleyball game!

Missy, congratulations on fitting into a teen sized skirt! I'm sorry to say, Susi is right about menopause ruining sleep!

I managed to go for a walking break this morning. It poured here all afternoon. I'm going to try to get Jimmy to help me with the photo this weekend!

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Susi... yes, I remember you posting the picture the last time your Dad played. So glad he had a good time!

Thank-you for posting her obituary. Again, so very sorry for your family's loss!

Papabear is fixing his breaks right now. Hoping all is going well. He just talked to our neighbor and sounded fine, so that is good! No troubles like the truck's breaks!

Older Cub has not gone for his MRI yet. He's waiting on the doctor.
My appointment went okay I guess. I'm just more confused! A lot of information, and I wish someone was there with me. Oh well...

Have to post my dinner....
Hope everyone had a good day!

Thank you for the prayers Missy. Aunt Pauline made the arrangements today so I'll order flowers in the morning. Kelly and TJ are going in on them with us.

I didn't take any pictures of dad playing this time. One other time when we got there he was playing and I got a video of that. He gets tired out with his breathing after a while, but he does like doing it. :)

I'm so happy your mail is coming in again! Yes, I certainly do believe you! When it comes to the internet anything is possible. LOL! I'm just glad it's working again. :)

I hope your appointment went well today. Yes, it is possible for your big M to cause you to not be able to sleep well. Trust me on that one!!

I'm sorry to hear about Papabear's brakes. :( It is always something. Grr! No, I don't recall you mentioning about OC having to get an MRI. I hope his knee is going to be okay.

HUGS!

Good morning ladies! I'm just getting on here now, but got up at 8:30am again... hee hee.

Susi... I'm so very sorry about your cousin Deb. So sad when God calls one of his best back home! Praying for you all during this time... especially your Aunt Pauline and you! Oh, and I'm always here to listen, so keep going if you wish...

Okay, I'll have to take a picture when I where the skirt. I was just surprised to find it in the teen section and it fits.

Sorry your Dad lost the volleyball game, but at least he had fun!!! Glad you were able to convince him to play!! Did you get any pictures?

You will never believe me... this morning when I booted up my computer, my SP emails came through! Isn't that crazy?!!? I'm trying to think what did I do different... all I did yesterday was join the 5% challenge team and went into rearranging my teams for my page, and this morning... SP email from Susi... hee hee. Thank-you God!!! With the challenge starting, I don't want to miss anything.

As for the Hotmail, I would rather just come on here each day to check, then join another spot I have to look, hee hee. I know, I'm weird. But all worked out!!! Thank-you anyway Susi!

Auntie Cyndie... hope you are having a good day! Supposed to be in the 80's here. So hoping it's not too hot. Hoping you have a walking break kind of day!!!

I'm running errands today then have my doctors appointment. Very excited (and nervous) of what they will say. Fingers crossed!

Well, I'm sad to say it was NOT the coffee ice cream! I had a hard time sleeping last night. It kicked in a half an hour before I went to bed and I work up right at 3am again feeling the same way! I hate this!!! I don't know how you deal with it Susi! I just wanted to sleep and cry!!! I will ask my doctor today if it's a side effect of this women crap! I hate it!!!

On that not, I should get going! Today Little cub is at the beach. Their whole grade went there today. Sounds pretty cool. I hope they have a good time!

Oh last... Papabear came home from work last night, and the back breaks on his car are going!!! No luck for us! Right now it's vehicles and medical stuff. One right after the other! Did I tell you Older Cub has to go for an MRI on his knee now?!!! aaaahhhhh.... The joys of life.

Have a good day ladies! TTFN

I found out yesterday that my cousin Deb passed away. :) Could you please put the family in your prayers? Her name was Debbie Sullivan. Thanks. Deb was only 52, our second cousin to die way too young. :( They say it was natural causes, her heart probably just stopped, she weighed in excess of 400 lbs. and had diabetes.

She had been in and out of the hospital I think 3 times for being in a sugar coma. She had a heart bigger than Texas and she would do anything in her power to help if you needed her. And oh, she could make you laugh in the worst of times. :) She was a very good Christian. :) Thanks for listening. :)

Cyndie, they lost the volley ball game to the other team, but they all have fun playing. :) After they finish they get a little snack and some juice, of course they all love that. :) I was surprised when dad picked the strawberry cheese cake instead of the s'mores. LOL! They just make them in little cupcake papers.

That was so nice of Papabear and OC to cut that tree up. :) I'm sure it was hard work but so rewarding. :)

Just like we want to see the birthday bracelet on Cyndie, we want to see you in your new skirts! They sound adorable. :) Good choice and great deal!

Do you have hotmail? If not consider getting one and use it only for Sparks, that's what I had to do and I've never had any problems getting my mail since. It's worth a try. :)

No, I didn't get much sleep last night, way too much on my mind. :( One thing is I was quite upset with TJ. When I called and told her about Debbie, she said, "oh, that doesn't surprise me" GRRR! I can only pray she doesn't say something stupid like that to Aunt Pauline.

HUGS!

Hello ladies!

Auntie Cyndie... thank-you! Hope you had a good day today. Hoping your birthday week is going well?!! Yes, please take a picture when you can! I'm sure it's beautiful!

Susi... I hope your dad had fun with his wheelchair volleyball! I love that you got him to do it, and hoping he had fun!!!

Papabear is like you with coffee! He can have a cup right before bed and still sleep! Drives me crazy!!! He basically switched Mountain Dew for many coffees a day!

Older Cub and Papabear went after dinner to go cut up that tree for our church/Priest. I'm sure he'll be very happy! I think Papabear was very happy to "play" and do it!

I will make sure I have some fun put on my list too, hee hee. Thanks for reminding me! (wink) Tonight while they were cutting a tree and Little cub was with friends, I went shopping. Mostly window shopping till I got to kohls... oops! I went to find some swim shorts. I have a swim skirt, but wanted shorts too. Anyways, walked my the "teen" area and saw some jean skirts. I really liked one, so tried it on. LOVED myself in it, so had to by it!! It was a buy one get one 1/2 off, so I got another one, hee hee. I think they were super cute.

Heading to bed soon, but wanted to check in. I have to remind myself because I'm STILL not getting my SP emails (sad face). But I only have to check this team and my Teddy Bear 5% challenge team, so that's not bad.

Have a good night ladies! Susi, hope you are able to SLEEP!!

Susi, how did your dad's wheelchair volleyball go? That sounds like a good time. As Missy said, I wish we could send some exhaustion your way!

Missy, happy first day of vacation! I'm glad that you were able to do some sleeping in today! I hope that you and the bears have a productive summer!

I will have to try to take a picture of me wearing my bracelet soon!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Missy, I didn't give dad a chance to be in a bad mood today. LOL! They were getting a wheel chair volleyball game up so I talked him in to doing it. Hehe! He does it now and then but I figured we could have fun watching and he didn't have the time to grouch. Hehe!

I wish you could pass it on to me too, I would be more than happy to take some of your tired-ness so I could sleep in! I'm glad you were able to sleep in a little at least.

I've never had a problem with coffee. LOL! When I worked I could drink it all night on night shift, come home, have another cup and go straight to sleep. :)

Yikes on that big tree falling at church! I'm so glad it didn't do anymore damage than it did. So far we haven't had the rain today but it's clouding up now and getting dark.

Yes, keep that list small. I would do a couple things on it then have some fun, then a couple more things. You sure don't want to waste your much deserved time off working.

HUGS!

Good morning ladies & happy 1st day of summer for me! (sorry)

Thank-you to all who take time to pray for our family and friends tonight too! God Bless you all! (hugs)

Susi... hoping your visit to your Daddy was good! Hoping & praying he was in a good mood!!! Fingers crossed too! hee hee

I was able to sleep in some. Got up at 8:30am. Did hear Papabear and older cub get up, but was able to doze back off into dream world. Wish I could pass my tired-ness on to you Susi!!! I'd share!!! hee hee

So the last few nights I have been having troubles getting to sleep. The only way I could explain it was ALL my nerves in my body were shaking/vibrating and I couldn't sleep.

THEN, last night I think I figured it out!!! I got myself this "limited time" flavor ice cream I like. I have been having a small dish before bed these last few nights. The flavor... Dark Chocolate Caramel Espresso. It has real coffee pieces in it! Coffee and I don't go well together! I LOVE coffee flavored stuff though!!! It makes me all hot (yes I can get hotter) and I feel like I'm "Hemi" on the move "Over The Hedge" (great movie)...
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_wY3q7nvGA
Anywho, I think this makes sense and will make sure I don't have it too close to bed time (wink) Susi, wish your not sleeping was an easy fix like mine!

Thank-you Susi, both of my cubs are very smart! I'm very proud of them!!! (thank-you)

Good luck with your rain! Hoping it comes, but not your storms! Older Cub works at our church, and he said a huge tree from the neighboring house, split and fell in the parking lot. Just nicking the church's activity center. Guess what he is doing today... clean up and cutting the branches he can. They have to clear the road so cars can get by at least for masses this coming weekend. Don't want any of that to happen for you Susi!!

Hoping your day is a good one Auntie Cyndie! Maybe a walking day? Enjoy if you can!

I'm taking today to hang at home, but tomorrow I have an appointment, so will run my errands too. I made my list of things I want to get done. I could of made a huge list, but kept it small. As I get things done, maybe I'll add more. But I want to enjoy my summer too, like Susi said... hee hee.

Have a good day ladies...

Cyndie, bummer that you got caught in the rain but I'm willing to bet it was worth it. :) It sounds like you had a nice birthday! Yes, we want to see the bracelet on you. :) I'm always just happy going out to eat. :)

It's supposed to get to 82 today but we have rain and thunder storms in the forecast at least through Friday. We need the rain but not the storms.

Missy, you do have me yearning for lasagna and garlic bread now! LOL! I just might have to make that sometime this week!

I think FP teachers are going to have a hard time with him, I do feel sorry for them. Maybe FPP will be good for you since he won't be there. :)

I think YC will save for college. He's a smart young man, you taught him well! You do have to spend a little of that now and then though. Hehe!

I'm glad Papabear got the garden planted. I'm dreaming of home made zucchini bread now. :)

I hope you were able to sleep in this morning. I sure wish I could. Off to see dad today and praying he's in one of his better moods.

HUGS!

Hello ladies...

Papabear is watching his soccer games, so thought I would log in my food and check in. (wink)

Hope Auntie Cyndie is enjoying her birthday!

The homemade lasagna came out pretty good if I say so myself. They cubs and papabear went for seconds, so that was good. Garfield enjoy it too (winking face)

I hear you Susi about FP. Next school year he won't be coming, just his sister. Hoping she works everything out over the summer. And I would be lying if I didn't say I'm happy he'll be moving on. Good luck to his new school!

As for younger cub, we did talk and he changed his hours already to work everyday except for Fridays. So whatever they schedule him for will be good. We talked about saving for college, etc. He agreed... fingers crossed.

Glad you enjoyed your feet soak! It's always good to do during these warmer... flip flop... months, hee hee.

We (and when I say "we" I mean Papabear) planted our garden. We kept it small this year. Just grape tomatoes, zucchinis, roma tomatoes, and my herbs (I had already planted my herbs when we got them).

Well time to hang with my cubs! I don't have to work tomorrow... I LOVE this!!! I'm gonna sleep in, if I can tomorrow! But I did make that list of things to do this summer and want to get them done, or close to done! hee hee

Have a good night ladies!

Missy, congratulations on being done for the summer! I'm happy for Younger Cub, too. It's nice of you to let him sleep in, for a bit!

Susi, your foot-pampering sounds nice, I really should do that sometime! It got up to 94 here yesterday, Today is much better!

If you can believe it, we got caught in a downpour on our way to the restaurant! My parents called, Kim called me and Jimmy bought me a bracelet!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy that's how I like my bread, in rolls, buns and so on. :) Sliced bread is okay for toast but if I have rolls here I will toast them. :)

I'm glad no one got hurt in the storms. Yikes on 3 of them being around. :( We're fixin' to have some rain here shortly. We really need it!

It's kind of a shame that you can't shame FP into not having his tantrums. Maybe putting him in a playpen like a little baby or something like that. I know that's not you though. I would do it. LOL! I'm bad! Hehe!

I'm sure it'll be nice to have YC home for the summer. :) He's a good boy so he may just surprise you and pick up those extra hours. :) Will OC be going with you on vacation?

I had a good foot soak today with almost hot water a cup of vinegar and a few dashes of dish soap then slathered them with lotion after my shower. The feel so good and refreshed even now. :)

Good morning ladies!!

Happy Birthday Auntie Cyndie!!! I'm also hoping you have a wonderful day! Break will be a good start, then maybe a nice walk, going home and relaxing and doing whatever you want!!! hee hee Wishing you a day for Cyndie!!! HUGS!

Susi... I LOVE garlic bread too and it actually sounds really good right now! Maybe I might have to add it to the menu tonight! Hee hee I actually like breads also... not so much sliced bread, but rolls, GARLIC BREAD, and things like that! Yummy! I have to stop talking about it, hee hee

I didn't hear of anyone getting hurt with the storms. There was three tornadoes spotted up north though. Crazy, we don't usually get those and now we are each year. Scary.

We are at 72 right now, but very humid! I think the high is supposed to be 84 today. I've been thinking the AC will have to be turned on soon, especially when I start making that lasagna!

Stay cool everyone!

Hoping Melissa had a good birthday yesterday! I'm thinking if she was in her pool, I'm sure it was a great day for her!!! hee hee

YES, last day!!! I so need the break!!! FP has been on a roll since he came here. His sister is being good so far! The other two are playing very nicely together!

Little cub is done school now too. They went to tomorrow, but he is done all his finals, so he doesn't have to go. I'm sure he'll be sleeping in! To TWO in the afternoon! hee hee. I'll give him this week, then Mamabear will come out! He should be contacting work and picking up hours! That way he can make some money to bank. But that is the smart thing, so it won't happen, hee hee.

Today I'm gonna make myself a list of things to do this summer. I want to get to the gym, but also clean some closets, maybe paint them too. Reorganize the house and Older Cub's stuff... with him... and have some days of fun for me!! hee hee

I just have to get through today! I CAN do this!!! hee hee
Hope you all have a good day too! I'll check back later!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CYNDIE!!!!!!!!!

I know you will enjoy going out to breakfast with your co-workers! :) I hope your day is an easy one too!

I'm glad you decided not to walk yesterday in the heat. :) I hope it cools off at least a little so you can get one in today. We have a 78 this morning with an 82 % humidity, but the air quality is good for today at 44. :)

Missy, that must have been one bad storm to take trees down like that :) I'm glad you are okay there. I hope no one got hurt anywhere.

Your dinner last night sounds so delicious, and tonight even better! I love lasagna, it's my favorite thing! I have to have garlic bread with it though. LOL! Can't help it, I take after my dad, he use to be a bread lover too. :)

I'm WOO-HOOing with you on today being your last day before vacation! I'm glad you let that other mom know about the other kids not coming, it was nice of her to not bring hers too. :)

HUGS!

Thank you Susi for the update on how NASCAR works these days, makes sense now. hee hee.
It HAD to be hot out to have Greg indoors! Glad he was smart and stayed in! Here was 95 as a high and 98% for the humidity. I felt your pain! Around dinner time we had thunderstorms and even lost power for about 5 minutes. All around town was closed roads due to trees down.

Yeah, we decided to do no bread with our sausage to save on calories (wink). It was still very good! Tonight was steak tips (Older Cub's choice), baked potato and carrots. Was yummy too! Tomorrow, for Cyndie and Garfield's birthdays, we are doing lasagna! hee hee

Auntie Cyndie... enjoy your birthday breakfast! That is very sweet of your co-workers!!! Glad you are doing something. Will Jimmy be home to celebrate at night? Hoping you have a wonderful day!!!

So I found out that tomorrow is my last day before my summer vacation!!! WooHoo! Both parents came in today saying they were done tomorrow. One is heading to Alaska for her sister's wedding and the other ended school last Friday and was able to clean her room in two days, not the three she thought! Since they said that, I contacted the mother of the child who comes here and there and let her know no one else would be here Wednesday, so she said she'll send him to his grandmothers. WooHoo!!! I'm SO excited! The FP twins were on a roll today, so it was a hard, LONG day!!!

Hoping everyone has a good evening! Hoping Melissa is enjoying her Birthday!
Good night ladies!!!

Missy, this weekend was Father's Day/my birthday. That was easiest for Kim, since my birthday is tomorrow. As for the pizza, there's no such thing as bad pizza for me! As for Father's Day menus, Papa Bear's sounds yummy!

Susi, I'm not sure what it got up to here today, but it's 81 degrees right now with 69 percent humidity. I admit, I bowed out of taking a walk break today. I did do the treadmill and watch GH when I got home.

My co-workers are taking me out to my birthday breakfast in the morning. I doubt that it will be Spark-friendly, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it!

Speaking of birthdays, Happy Birthday to my Spark Twin!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Missy, I did start putting the zipper in, but only got about 3 inches done. LOL! I have plenty of time so I figured I'll just do a little like that each time so it doesn't make my hand hurt. :)

We got to 92 today with a heat index of 101. You know it's too hot and humid out when Greg doesn't want to go out and do anything. It's hazy too and no wind at all blowing. He did go out and put fresh water in the bird bath but that was all.

Yes, Nascar does re-run old races. I guess so some can get their Sunday fix. Hehe! It has changed a LOT since the 90's for sure! Now they have 3 rounds and a pitstop in between if they choose to use it. The winner of each round gets extra points towards the race for the chase, the big cup. It's very confusing. :(

Your meal sounded wonderful, I love those! :) I like them on a hoagie bun with Miracle whip and shredded cheddar. Hehe! We had beef bbq sandwiches, and steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

I'm sure glad OC wanted the ac put in! I would have been a mess if we hadn't turned ours on when we did. It's nice he and Papabear had their together time working on the truck. :)

Congratulations to YC and his team for getting in the playoffs! I will be rooting for them!

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Monday?!? But Happy BIRTHDAY to our trusty leader, Melissa!! Hoping she is having a WONDERFUL day!!!

Susi... so glad you tried that cream and it worked for you!!! Hoping WHEN you decide to put the zipper in, it goes well and pain free!!!

Glad your Dad is feeling better!!! Nice you are talking today off!!! Enjoy and stay cool! Today we are supposed to get to 98 degrees and feeling like it's over 100!!! Guess who put the AC in yesterday, hee hee...

Hope Greg fixing your bucket goes well. It sounds very cute!

So right now it's the "FIFA World Cup" time (like soccer's superbowl?!?). Anywho, we were watching a game and after it went into a NASCAR race. I thought I was watching the race, but must of been a repeat, since you said they didn't race.

I was so confused because they were saying 5 to go for the 2nd... poohie, I forgot the word... hummm... anywho, then it was like they started a new race, the pace car came out and all. It was a race in Iowa. Guess NASCAR has really changed since we watched it in the 90's.

I know it wasn't a race day menu, but what did you make this Sunday for dinner? Papabear wanted sausage on the grill with peppers and onions and I made some zucchini too on the grill. It was yummy!

Auntie Cyndie... How was the Father's Day pizza?!! Hope you three had a great day together! Is Kim doing anything special for your birthday, or was that part of Sunday's celebration?

Papabear is the same way, waits to take a day off when it's good weather and would make a long weekend (Friday or Monday off) for him. Hope you take your day off for yourself soon!!!

Nice you enjoyed your "boring" weekend! I think we all love those!!! Glad it was a nice time with your honey!!

Melissa... saw on FB you had friends over and was swimming in your pool! Looked like you had a great time!!! Hope you splashed some for me!!!

This weekend was a hot one, but I'm NOT complaining (wink). Like I said, Papabear... well more Older Cub insisted... on putting the AC finally in! But we were outside most of the weekend.

Saturday Little Cub had his last game, which they won, so now they are in the playoffs. Not sure how this is going to go?!? But it was a nice day and good game! He scored, so I was very happy.

The rest of the weekend was Older Cub and Papabear working on the truck's brakes. The got one side down easy, but the other side was VERY hard! I prayed and prayed for what they were doing to work. Finally Papabear just cut through them to brake them loose. I was SO happy when it finally was done!!!

I wouldn't say he had the best Father's Day weekend, but there was lots of good moments and I think he enjoyed that time with Older Cub working on the truck.

Okay, well time to post the QOTD... Hope you all have a good day! I'll be back!

Cyndie, they didn't always have Father's day off, just Mother's day. They started doing Father's day about 3 years ago so the drivers could be with their families. :)

Greg worked in the garage some yesterday. We have a fake water pump and barrel that we would put flowers in the bucket. It fell over in the wind so many times it finally came apart, so he's been fixing that. He made it about 15 years ago so it was getting old.

The only time he did anything outside was last evening to water and it was still hot and humid out then. It's supposed to get to 89 today with another high humidity day. I put off my cleaning yesterday so I'll do it today. We're taking today off from dad since we were there yesterday.

HUGS!

Susi, it's nice that the NASCAR drivers get Father's Day off. You're always teaching me something!

Like you, I love a nice, boring day. What did you and Greg do today?

Hugs!

Cyndie, no race this weekend since it's Father's day.

It's a shame you don't have your birthday off. :( Hopefully you will get that day soon!

Congratulations on staying in your calorie range! :) I love a nice boring day. :)

Missy, I love the story about Fussy Pants and his mom. You're right, she is totally whipped! I'm so happy for you that it's almost vacation time from him and his sister!

Susi, I'm looking forward pizza with Jimmy and Kim tomorrow. I wish I I had my birthday off. I don't, but I do want to take a day off for myself soon. As always, I'm ready to hear about the race day menu.

Jimmy and I had a nice, boring day today. We ran errands (went to the Post Office and grocery store). We also went out to lunch. I'm proud to say, I stayed within my calorie range.

Go, Truex! Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie, I guess from all the years taking care of dad at home, I learned to be a nurse. LOL! Wouldn't it be nice if a person could put that kind of thing on a resume' and get a job from it? I could be all kinds of professionals by now. LOL!

My hand is much better today. I put some Blue Emu cream on it last night and the sore and stiffness went away. I didn't think that would work since it was a left over surgery problem, glad I at least tried it. :)

I'm so glad you got a walk to the bank in! And it's nice of Kim to bring pizza for both of you on Sunday. :) Are you taking Tuesday off? That would be a nice birthday present in itself :)

Missy, dad did feel better not long after his nebulizer. We had to leave the room though while he was doing it cause he seemed to want to talk too much and if we're not in there he does it the right way. I hate doing that but it has to be done.

Yep, FP mom is whipped for sure, he has her number. LOL! It is funny though, you think he would go to her and not you when he's hurt. Or maybe with her she gives him special treats and that's the way he can get more out of her.

I want to say too, happy father's day to all our dad's and hubbies. :)

HUGS!

Hee hee... thank-you Susi!!!

Sorry your Daddy was a SFP (hee hee). Sound like he had a good reason though, not feeling well because of his breathing. Very nice of you to be understanding about the sub nurse, but this means you (and your sisters?!!?) just have to keep an eye on him a little bit more till the regulars return. Good luck! Hope he feels better!

Greg can come here with that club!!! Our neighbor is also getting very upset too. He's a huge lawn guy and hates these holes also in his yard. We drove in the drive way this evening and "he" was in the front yard. I think Papabear jumped out of the car before it was in park to chase him yelling I'm gonna get you! it was pretty funny... hee hee

So I think FPP is teething, so she was bad all day! I'm so ready for vacation! hee hee Her brother was off and on today, but for him, it was a good day.

I have to tell you though...
When the FP's mom came to pick him/them up... he took a few fits (basically wanted to go to Target and she was trying to say not now, she was tired, maybe tomorrow...aaaahhh). Anyways, they FINALLY start to leave and she was carrying the baby & happened to bump him into the corner of my kitchen table. He started screaming. I can understand, it was the corner and his head.

I went to bend down and check on him... because her hands were full with the baby... and he yelled louder and freaked. The mom then said to me "when he gets hurt he doesn't like to be touched". I found this so funny and told her, because when he gets hurt here, he comes over to me right away and I even give him a hug!!! She is SO whipped!!! hee hee

That was wrong, sorry, but I had to share!

Hope you all have a good weekend! Stay safe, have fun... and happy Father's day to all our Dad's!

Missy, we are so happy that there's a day in your honor! I'm sitting here in my flip flops right now! As for FP, I agree with Susi, it would be in everyone' best interest if he outgrew his selfishness! I'm glad that you enjoyed movie night!

Susi, it's good that you knew how to check up on your dad. My dad is like your Uncle Tom, he doesn't do the Internet. My mom is like your aunt, she e-mails me every day. I hope your hand is better soon!

It was a beautiful sunny day here today, so I was able to get in a walk to the bank. Kim will be over Sunday with pizza for her dad (and me). I refuse to cook, after all, Tuesday is my birthday!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, this National day is in your honor! :)

It's a shame that FP can't share his toys but expects others to share theirs. I sure hope he grows out of that.

I did get the new zipper today but I haven't started working on it yet. It's here though when I'm ready to.

SFP was up to his grumpiness again today. :( *Senior fussy pants* Hehe! He was also having some breathing problems and hadn't had his nebulizer yet. I put on his call button and no one came. So I went looking. The nurse was a "traveling" nurse helping to fill in for 2 of the regulars who were on vacations.

She gave the liquid to me and I got it ready for him to use. Today was her first day at that home and I think she was still trying to figure things out. So I wasn't upset with her.

Greg would be bashing those chipmunks with a club if they were doing that in our yard. I'm silently giggling, but I know it isn't funny. I was picturing him sneaking around the yard with a billy club waiting on them. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed the movie with the girls. :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies... and YES, happy Friday!!! It's been a LONG week!!! I'm so happy it's just about done!! FOUR more days (counting today). I can do this, hee hee.

FP and the FPP (Fussy Pants Princess)... came in today as normal. FPP has been pretty good and doing better right now! FP fussed all morning so far, but is just about out of it. He's in and out right now because one other child brought a toy from home and he shared with FP, but now wanted his toy back, so I made him give it back.

Know everytime he brings a toy from home he NEVER shares and when my younger one goes even NEAR it, he freaks, so it's pretty funny he's fussing because this boy wants his truck to play with. But as I'm typing this, he has already got the truck back. aaagghhh. He doesn't even PLAY with it, he just holds it!

MOVING ON.... I'm happy today is Friday and these last four days!

Susi... sorry your hand is still hurt this morning! I'm not surprised though. It had to be a zipper that was put together by a machine, and that kind of material the suit case is made out of would be tough. Just be careful and make sure you REST it, don't need you in constant pain again! Praying it goes easily from now on!

As for your Dad, they are like children! I'm sure he is TOTALLY different around you and others! Like I say about my cubs, at least they are well behaved when I'm not around. And if he was naughty, I'm sure your Uncle knows it's not him, but his disease. Hoping today's visit is good today for you!!

You can tell Greg I hate chipmunks more than squirrels!!! My whole yard, FRONT & BACK, is destroyed from them!!! We have tennis ball size holes EVERYWHERE!!! They are driving me CRAZY!!! ruining my gardens, patio blocks, everything!!! gggrrrrr

Auntie Cyndie... YES, happy Friday!!! Hoping it's a "walk to the bank" kind of day for you! Rainy here, so hoping you have the sunshine!!! Hoping your day goes quickly till it's time to head home!

Any plans for the weekend? Is Kim doing anything special for her Daddy?!? Are you seeing your Dad? Hoping they both have a very happy Father's Day!!!

Same with your dad Susi!!!

The movie was cute. We did laugh the whole movie! I love going to movie night with the ladies, but they are ladies who leave right after, so there is no talking and catching up with them. We did talk for a few minutes in the parking lot, but that was it. Miss that part of "ladies night out"... oh well...

Okay, time to change diapers. I'm happy it's raining so I can stay inside today. I'm just in the mood to be in my house, not out in the sun today. Also, I rather have rain today and a nice weekend! (wink)

TTFN ladies... have a good day!

Cyndie, my hand is still sore and stiff this morning from doing the zipper. I don't know when I'll get around to getting one to put in.

Oh, I'm glad it's Friday, I know both of you are too! :)

Since Uncle Tom doesn't mess with the internet, I messaged Aunt Elsie yesterday and asked her if dad behaved while he was there. She said yes, and they had a nice visit. :) Since he acts up around us, you just never know. Usually he's pretty good when he gets other visitors though.

HUGS!
