Cyndie, the did get the race in yesterday, but it didn't start till after 6. Truex came in 9th, but at least he was in the top 10.

The storm they had was bad. The wind blew the covers off a few of the cars and also the makeshift tower they report from. After the rain stopped the big driers came out and worked for a long time getting the track dry. At least they got it in though. :)

I always make sure I clean before we go away too. :) That's one less thing to worry about when we get home. Doing the laundry and putting stuff away is enough to have to deal with. LOL!

So when are you having French bread pizza? Hehe!

HUGS!

Susi, thanks for the information about the race. Does that mean they'll run it tomorrow? I don't blame you for eating the pizza! You have no idea how many times I end up following your race day menus. TeeHee

Jimmy went to the gym yesterday. I stayed home and did my housework. You know that made me happy. First of all, I prefer to be alone when I do it. Secondly, it's out of the way before we head for Cincinnati!

Enjoy the last of the weekend!

Hugs!

The race started at 3 and stopped at 3:15. :( They saw lightening on the way and they evacuated the stands and the wind started blowing something terrible and it rained buckets. I think it still is. :( So it's delayed but I know if they can they will run it today if the rain stops and they can get the track dry..

Of course the pizza was ready so we went ahead and ate. Never fails.

HUGS!

Cyndie, I just love seeing the first responders showing so much love for their own. Especially when it's for a good reason. I don't like it for the other reason but only because I know someone was "lost" and that is sad. :(

Cleaning for me today then French bread pizza and the race. I'll be ready to relax by then. LOL!

Missy, I see that we posted at the same time! You're full of good news! You had a good trip to the college, and the celebration and meal for your mother-in-law sound perfect!

Susi, I will definitely take love from you and Missy to my parents! You're right, if I were still working, I wouldn't have been able to take that much time off for the 4th.

We got up before 7 am this morning. Our neighbor down the street retired from 44 years with the fire department. They brought him home with a procession of fire trucks, so we were out there to wave at him and thank him for his service!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs!

Missy, most dry wall guys do it so much it's like walking to them. :) I'm sure they will have it done quickly. :) Have you picked colors out yet?

I'm so happy for YC! I love when a person is excited about a new job like he is. To me that means he will be very good at what he does because he loves it. And helping people is the most rewarding thing in life a person can do. I'm proud of both your cubs!!

Thank you! I still feel bad I whimped out yesterday, but I wasn't the only one. One of the guys finished his stuff and he was so miserable because of it. :( I felt terrible for him. :(

As far as I know dad is still going out of his room for at least 2 of his meals. He says there isn't anything to do except sit around and watch the others sleeping with their mouths open. :( Yes, there is a lot of that but still, he can watch out the windows, there is construction going on because they are expanding and he could be watching that. He just wants to sit in the room though. :(

That was nice of you to do MIL's birthday like that! I'm so glad she enjoyed it. Seems she has change for the good the last few years! :)

Cyndie, I'm so glad you are going to visit with your parents! I love that you can go so much more now. :) I'm sure they are too. Don't forget to give them our love!! :)

I don't think I would have made it through this past week if it wasn't for the ac! We have that in rehab too, but with so many there and working out it gets hot fast. I always sweat a lot there.

HUGS!

Linda, it's good to see you on here, as always! I know what you mean about needing a vacation from your vacation! I hope you let us know how the house is!

Susi, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad. We've said it so many times, what an awful disease! That's too bad about rehab. It's hot and humid here, too! The race day menu sounds good!

Missy, your reno looks great! I'm so happy for Papa Bear that you're able to hire someone to do the drywalling done. Keep up the good work on your cooking!

Jimmy and I will be headed to Cincinnati on Wednesday for the holiday. We will be back Saturday. Something I wouldn't have been able to do if I were still working!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Hello ladies...
Yes, we have heard from many that drywall is awful! These guys are supposed to have it done in three hours, so we'll see. It's well worth the money! You can see Papabear feeling better already!

The college was nice... we had already went, so it wasn't the first time. It's definitely a community college... nothing like what Older Cub is at, but it will work and the second and third year, if he gets into that living at the fire station... hands on job training... that will be awesome (and not pay for room and board. He's excited, and I'm excited for him! Oh, it is also right on the water though, just like OC is in RI, so that is cool!

Do not be so hard on yourself with the rehab. My first thought was is the heat is already bothering you, you of course would not be close to your 100%. Then hearing everyone had a hard day... and THEN that the room was so full, I'm thinking it had to be hot and stuffy. That can't help!!! So I'm proud of what you did do, and next time you may do better, but it sounds like with all that was happening, you did great! Proud of you Susi!!!

Well I hope someday you can make it to that River walk in Texas. My fingers are crossed and I'm praying you can! Seems like a simple item on a bucket list! Here's to hoping and praying... someday!!!

I guess it's good your dad still went to watch?!!? Got him out of the room, and maybe he talked to other people watching?!!? It's when they stay in there room and never come out, that seems so sad! Hoping he keeps getting out! HUGS!

French Bread pizza... aaahhh... that sounds good! hee hee. Good choice Greg!
Tonight I was sort of naughty. Sunday is my MIL's birthday and they are taking her out to brunch, but we have that Drywall guy coming, so we can't make it. So I said to PB... since he had to go over to pick up his dad's truck... let's visit with them and give her her gifts.

So I stopped at Market Basket to pick her up some flowers, and Papabear said he was just gonna grab a sub. I, not being a huge sandwich girl, looked at what else they had. They had some chicken nuggets that looked good, so I got about 5 of those and a side salad. Then I saw MB's meatloaf and remembered my SIL said they liked it, so we called them and asked if they wanted us to pick some up for them, so we all ate together. Stayed for an hour, gave her her gifts and they seemed happy... she did very much. Think she liked the company!

So my point of that, my dinner wasn't the best, but I was good all day, so some chicken nuggets I guess were okay?!!? hee hee.

Auntie Cyndie... hope you had a good day!
How are you enjoying GH? What do you think is up with that kid Sonny took in? I'm also ready for Willow and Michael to find out the truth about Willie (is that how you spell it, hee hee?!?). Oh, what do you think about the new Nina?!? The old one was so good, I think it'll be hard to see this actress as the devious Nina, but I'm sure it'll all work out.

Okay, well I hope you ladies have a good night! Tomorrow is finishing up all the wiring, and be ready for the sheet rockers. I'm excited to see walls and not pink insulation!!

Hope Truex does another win this weekend and you enjoy your pizza! YUM! Auntie, have a wonderful weekend whatever you do! Have fun with Jimmy, Kim, the girls, or just time a lone... hee hee.

Love ya both! emoticon

Wow Missy, it sure is coming along! :) Thanks for the pictures! :) Greg said dry wall is one of the hardest things to do, so I don't blame PB for not really wanting to do it. He is doing really good so far! I'm proud of you all!

I'm so glad the drive was good for you. How was it at the college?

With all the work you're doing, I can't believe the ac wasn't in before this. I'm glad you put it in. It got to 92 today with a heat index of 95! :( Rehab was bad for all of us today. :( I was so mad at myself, I had to stop on the "bad" recumbent bike 3 minutes before my time was up, I just couldn't do it and I skipped the elliptical altogether! It was bad!

I wasn't the only one having troubles though everyone was. And on top of that it was a large class with 13 people in there and we had to wait for machines to work on. :(

I hope it doesn't storm for you this weekend. We were supposed to get it today but didn't, so maybe you won't either. :)

My bucket list..Hmm? Well I would love to go to Texas and see the river walk. I'm not sure that will ever happen though. It's a nice dream. :)

Dad was pretty good yesterday. :) He's getting worse though about not wanting to go to any activities. He said he went to volley ball on Wed. but he went late and just watched, they said he wasn't down there at all. :( His mind. :(

I think you are doing a great job with the cooking considering what you have to work with. :) Speaking of pizza, Greg decided he wanted me to make French bread pizza for the race. LOL! I guess I got something started doing that. LOL!

Yes, you all are still in my prayers and you too Cyndie, always for all of you! :)

HUGS!

PapaBear is doing a great job with his remodeling of the house. I can understand his hitting a low, he is really doing so much; glad he is getting help with the drywall. You must be so proud of him, I am proud of both of you!!

I am still recovering from my vacation, I had a wonderful time and saw so many people, the best being Missy and her family. But I am tired of being on highways.

Next thing will be our move. We go to see our new home on 7/2; It is a manufactured home, can't wait to check it out.

have a wonderful day everyone. hugs to all....

Morning ladies... well almost afternoon! Sorry I have been MIA, as you know, a lot going on and I'm trying to help as much as I can!

Susi... I do remember you having to drive to Richmond for that race, and that is how I felt... I had to drive. You did awesome on your drive, and all went well for me. Like Cyndie said... happy it's behind me, hee hee.

Stay cool in your heat today. We caved and put the AC on. I think it's supposed to be hotter as the day and weekend goes on. I won't complain, because that's nice, just wish I was swimming or something in it, hee hee. But it will ALL be worth it!!!
They are saying chance of T-Storms over the weekend, so hoping not!

Susi, you never know... maybe some day you can make it to another race again. At least you guys got to go once. So what's on your bucket list? Maybe it's your turn?!! (wink)

Hoping your Dad is doing okay?!! Greg & you too! emoticon

Auntie Cyndie... Glad the news was better at your dentist! Like Susi said, hoping the insurance kicks in or at least pays a good amount!! Fingers Crossed/praying! But so happy you got a second opinion!

So any plans to visit your parents again soon? How about Kim? Hoping you all are doing well! Have a nice day!

Yeah, I haven't posted any pictures in a while. Not much has changed. They are doing electrical this week and this weekend drywall should be going up, so maybe then.

I just looked back and It's been a while since I updated the pics, sorry... so here is where we are at...

This is the beam up and open concept!


Cabinets gone & my make-shift sink for now.

This is my "kitchen" for now. The stove doesn't work, but the fridge and microwave is up and working. So far, other than the pizza night, we have been grilling meals. Last night was chicken and some green giant veggies (in the microwave). Sat out on our picnic table and enjoyed our yard, hee hee.

It's coming a long. I think Papabear hit a low, but we have some friends that know a drywall person, so we decided to have them do it (they quoted cheaper than I thought, so that was great!). You could see the change immediately in Papabear. I think he wasn't looking forward to the mudding/taping of it all. Next is the tile I know he was nervous with, so we'll see. But I think he's excited to try that! Anywho, it's coming a long. Today I took off to do the budget. Want to stay on track, hee hee.

So it's been a week, but all is good. Keep us in your prayers, and I always have you two ladies in my prayers!!! HUGS!

Hope you have a good day... now back to the budget.

Cyndie, I so hope your insurance covers it, or at least the biggest part of it. This says that the other place was only in it to get the money or fraud the insurance companies. :(

We were supposed to get a storm today but now it says only a 20% chance. Problem is that it's supposed to get to 90. :(

It would be nice if we could go to another Nascar race, but I don't see that happening. It was on Greg's bucket list so that's what he got for retirement. :)

Susi, I'm so happy for you and Greg that you were able to do that driving to Richmond. That was a once in a lifetime trip!

The new dentist didn't think I needed as much work as the first one. Plus, he said he would submit his proposal to our insurance company, so I'll check with them on that next month. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I hope your Friday Eve was good!

Hugs!

Cyndie, good luck at the dentist today! I sure hope he's not as money hungry as the other was.

I never got that headache back so I'm good to go now.

I would have never driven to Richmond but... the tickets were non-refundable and I had gotten some really good seats. I sure wasn't about to lose that much money because of Greg's broken ankle.

Linda, it's good to see you on here, and great to know you're back home safe and sound!

Missy, you are not a baby for being apprehensive about driving in heavy traffic. You're just cautious! As for your eating, as long as you're staying within your calorie range, you should be fine!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear about your air conditioning headache. I hope that you're feeling better. There's something else we have in common, I don't like freeway driving. I'm excited that Jimmy can drive me to Cincy now!

Speaking of apprehension, tomorrow is my appointment with Jimmy's dentist. Talk about something else I'll be happy to have behind me!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Hi Linda! I'm so glad you made it home safely. :)

Missy, I sent a prayer up for you. Maybe you could have let YC drive for part of it? :) I sure know the feeling of worry driving so far like that. And you are not being a baby about it.~I had the anxiety attacks going to Richmond. :(

You all are making fast progress on the reno! I can't wait to see more pictures! :) You are getting good exercise helping out! And don't worry about getting pizza, it's sure not easy to try to cook and be tired from working at a project and so on. :)

Morning ladies. Happy Wednesday! Thank-you to all who take a moment tonight to pray for our family & friends in need of prayers! God Bless you all!

Susi... sorry to read about your AC headache. I'm glad it went a way and I hope you were able to get back to sleeping! HUGS!

Sorry to also read about your Daddy. I hope his mood improves. I'm sure that has to be hard for you. No win... better to have him complaining, but hard to always hear. Praying for him and you!!!

Oh, I agree, I love the windows open too! Stay cool today!

Auntie Cyndie... Glad your "throne" is all fixed! Hate when projects end up like that... something that should of been simple, turns into more. But I guess it's good Jimmy noticed and it's fix now!! Enjoy your new "seat"... hee hee.

What's next for your adventure today?!? Any more repairs, going to the gym, relaxing? Whatever you do, hope you have a good day!

My parents arrived home safely yesterday afternoon! Little traffic, but a better ride. They hit a hawk I guess, but that was it for excitement, so that's good! Thanks for the prayers for them!

Today I'm driving Younger Cub out to his college. We have to go over paper work, etc. for him going there. I'm all in knots having to drive, but I can do this!!! I'm so not a long trip driving girl. Oh well, God is Good and I know he'll be with me... please!!! hee hee

That's about it for me. Yesterday was working on electrical and getting plugs and switches situated. Coming a long! Tomorrow is picking up sheet rock and then it'll be getting that up. Another huge mess to come.... aaaahhhh... I've given up on cleaning, hee hee. I keep doing it of course, but right after there is another mess. I know it will all be worth it. Like I tell myself when exercising! Though my exercising these days are running up and down the stairs for Papabear (working the legs), holding heavy stuff up (working the arms), and constantly bending down (more working the legs).

We were naughty last night. We got our favorite pizza! I know, but I stayed with in my calories still, but that was because these days I only seem to be eating two meals... either breakfast and dinner, or lunch and dinner. I snack in between, but been fruit or veggies, so I'm still trying to be good! Lets say, my last two weigh in have been VERY good and I also have my period right now, so I have been very happy!!! hee hee

Alrighty, I need to get YC up and ready to leave. I want to arrive early to be safe. Two hour drive... I can do this! Actually, most of it is easy, just two very trafficy spots I'm stressing over. I know, I'm a BIG baby.

Have a good day ladies! I'll be back...

Cyndie, that sounds like some of the project problems that Greg gets into. I'm glad it's all done now. I think things like that can be maddening. :(

I've been up for a while, I finally got that ac headache I always end up getting. :( I knew it would show up, just didn't know when, now I do. LOL! It's gone now so I can hopefully get back to sleep for a while.

Missy, as you said, I do hope that the driving was better for your parents today. Congrats to Papa Bear on his half day off. I'm glad to hear that things are going well with your reno project!

Susi, thank you for taking hugs and kisses to your dad from us. I don't blame you for being worried about him. We know you'll keep us posted! You and Greg stay safe and cool!

Our plumbing project was one of those things. It started out that the toilet seat broke, so Jimmy was replacing that. Then he decided the toilet wasn't seated right. Once he took it up, he found out that things hadn't been done right, etc. I'm glad that's over with!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, it isn't because of the power bill, I just like having the windows open after being closed up all winter. It's still humid today but not as bad as yesterday. :) Of course the ac will stay on though.

I sure hope your parents had a better day today. Was it the weather or traffic or both?

I told dad Hi from you and Cyndie both, he said HI back. :) He was rather quiet today and that bothered me. If he's not grouching or being ornery I feel like something is wrong. :( He did try to put me on a guilt trip when we were leaving. I feel so bad when he does that.

That is amazing the 100 year old who goes to the schools and gives talks. :) I love when they keep busy like that and pass their knowledge on to others!

Morning ladies! Just wanted to pop in before things got busy!

Auntie Cyndie... Like Susi said, I hope that doesn't mean it wasn't an easy fix?!!? Hope all ios okay and he just needed an extra hand so not to keep getting up and down.

Susi... I know you didn't want to put the AC on, but if it helps you... especially with your breathing... I'm very happy you did! The AC bill is much cheaper than a hospital stay! Maybe it'll be less humid and no AC today?!? We are supposed to get rain today.

My Parents are on their last stretch of driving home. I guess the last two days have been brutal for them. Hoping (and praying) today is much better!

Susi, if you visit your Daddy, say HI to him for me. I was thinking of him yesterday. They showed a guy, from my home town, on the news last night who turned 100! He was born the same year as my Grandmother... she would of been 100 in February if still with us. Anyways, made me think of your Dad. This guy goes to schools and talks to the students about his years in the war. Still, at 100! So awesome! That's a good history class!!!

Papabear took a half day today. Last night he was so wiped. We didn't do anything but plan lights. Today we'll do electric and move switches, etc. With walls gone, we have to move them, hee hee.

Hope you all have a good day. I'll try to come back later. Now I have to go eat my English muffin... hee hee. Sounds goof to me today. I normally don't have a breakfast... yeah, I know it's bad. With no smoothies right now, I don't know what to do, hee hee.

Have a good one!
Hope it's less humid Susi!
And hope all is going well with your project Cyndie!

Missy, we had chili dogs the other day. :) Our temps are in the high 80's now too only with a high humidity to go with it. It's not good for breathing. :( Although I'm doing okay. :) We broke down and turned the ac on last night. *sigh*

Cyndie, I hope that didn't mean things were worse than Jimmy thought.

That sounds good Susi! I don't mind hamburg... just not a lot of it and with hardly anything else! I LOVE tacos!!! So it sounded good to me, hee hee. Reminds me of a layers taco dip I used to do, but with rice, hee hee.

Hot dogs for dinner, easy to grill, hee hee.

Hope you ladies are having a good day. It's been beautiful here today... in the high 80's!!!

Missy, you probably wouldn't like it, it has hamburger in it. But...

Brown and drain hamburger, add 1 small can of tomato sauce, and about 10 oz. of salsa. Let simmer. Make rice and let set. Shred lettuce, use sour cream and shredded cheddar for the toppings.

In individual bowls, layer rice, meat, sour cream lettuce and cheddar then scoop out with taco chips.

I use a spoon to put mine on the taco chips and usually use Dorito scoops. :)

I cut my bangs too only when I was about 5, that was even worse. LOL! At least I didn't have to go to school, but I did have to go to church.

Wow, you all are moving right along with all the work! :) You sure have everything under control! :)

Computer is better, just right now for some reason I can't find the disk to add my printer back in. :( Grrrrrrr! Hopefully I will find it soon.

Hello ladies! Just got home from running my errands.

Susi... congrats for Truex!!! Greg must of been so happy!!! Second in points too, awesome!!! Hoping it continues into next weekend!! WooHoo!
emoticon

The taco rice sounds yummy!!! How do you make it? Might be a stupid question, but...

I'm not surprised Greg is good at cutting hair. Last time he did great. I remember the pics. I'm like Cyndie, always go to someone else. hee hee

When I was about 10/11 I wanted my bangs trimmed so bad. My Mom's BFF did it, but we hadn't gotten to see her yet. So one morning I was like how hard could this been to TRIM bangs. So I did it. It was SO crooked. I didn't want to go to school, but my Mom made me. I told everyone my sister tried to do it. They felt like they took forever to grow out!! So only professional to do my hair!!! hee hee
emoticon

Auntie Cyndie... how was the hommus?!? I LOVE it, but many family & friends tried it and did not like it. I dip celery in mine and have used crackers. But the lady at the grocery store told me once when checking out, she does lots of fruits, and pretty much everything. I like using it for a healthy and low calorie snack, so celery is my favorite. Hope you liked it!!!

I'm glad you had such a nice birthday that you needed to rest all weekend! Hee hee. That's good! You deserved the days of celebrating!!!

I have to dig out my walking videos. Actually, there are probably some here on SP. I used to do Leslie's and I have seen her's here before... Good job Auntie!!!

It was a busy and very productive weekend for us all! The walls are down, beam is installed and kitchen is all out!!! My house is s a mess, but looking good, if that makes sense. So happy and excited! Sunday was Day 9 and I don't know where Papabear thought he would be at, but I would of never thought this!

I have a "sink cart" so we can wheel the sink out of the way if needed to work. The stove is not hooked up, but I planned grilled meals this week and we have the microwave if needed (got green giant veggies is the freezer section to microwave to go with hot dogs and grilled chicken) Grilled cheeses too if we want, and sandwiches. We got this!

Next electrical, then drywall, then cabinets. Coming a long!

Well I have to pay the bills, but wanted to check in!!
Oh, Susi... hope your computer is back to normal?!!

Have a good day ladies! I'll try to come back...

Cyndie, how was the humus? That happens to Greg a lot too when he's fixing things, there is always something he has to run after.

emoticon Truex hung in there and WON! Woohoo!! emoticon He's 2nd in points! :)

Coloring my hair is easy. One of these days it's going to be all silver and it won't blend in anymore. :( Greg has a good eye for getting things even and that's what makes him good at cutting my hair. :) I do the sides and he does the back.

Susi, I think it's great that you dye your hair and Greg cuts it. I'm not that brave. I'm just a chicken who goes to the hair salon.

I think I'm going to try the chocolate hummus tonight. Since it's chocolate, I'm hoping it's good!

Jimmy is working on the toilet in the laundry room. As always, once he got into it, he found out he needed to go to the hardware store. While he was gone, I did a walking video.

Hang in there, Truex!

Enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie, no choice on the grocery yesterday, we were out of just about everything. LOL!

I've never tired the chocolate humus, but it sounded like those would be good go togethers. :) Anything chocolate I can come up with something for. LOL!

I'm glad you took it easy yesterday. I actually did except for the grocery. I have cleaning today so that will make up for it. And I asked Greg to cut my hair again, it's driving me nuts already. :( It will be the same as the last time though. :) He's good at it! :)

Susi, I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one who has to rest up! What are you doing going to the grocery store on Saturday? LOL Taco rice sounds yummy! Go, Truex!

I was true to my word. I haven't done a thing all day. I've enjoyed every minute of it! I promise to do better tomorrow! Thanks for the ideas on the chocolate hummus. Have you ever tried it?

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Cyndie, I don't know what you're supposed to eat with it, but I would probably do either gram crackers or pretzels. Hehe!

Greg didn't mention what he wanted for the race, but we're going to the grocery today and I may suggest Taco rice. :)

Shucks, my gallivanting around consists of rehab, dad and the grocery and I need rest after those. LOL! I'm glad you are taking it easy this weekend. :)

Missy, I'm sorry to say, I didn't watch them make the smoothie. I do have a food question for you. I bought some chocolate hummus. What do you eat it with?

Susi, once again, you're full of good news! A good visit with your dad, Greg's truck is fixed, and he got his mowing done! What's on the race day menu?

You know I'm old! After all of the "gallivanting" I did on my birthday and yesterday, I just plan to rest up this weekend! Go, Truex!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Missy, Greg got his mowing done today so he was a happy pappy. Not long ago they called and his truck was finished. :) So I took him down to get it. Of course there were a few other things they found they needed to fix too, but you want it safe to drive. :) I like not having to share my car all the time. Hehe!

I hope all the work goes well with the house this weekend. :) Yea, it's probably a good thing to stay home from the fest and "help" the guys. It's in quotes cause I really mean keep an eye on them. Hehe!

Sad your parents are leaving again, seems too soon. But Please give them hugs and kisses from Cyndie and I before they leave.

HUGS!

Morning ladies! I have a few minutes, so thought I'd stop in.

Happy 1st day of Summer!!! I think it starts at 11:40'something this morning! Enjoy!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Susi... I'm glad your dad was in another good mood. Hoping that "other shoe" doesn't drop soon! Enjoy this time! I know you do. HUGS to him and you!!!

Yeah, if the rain stopped, that means it's coming our way (stopping too). It's raining again today, but supposed to be a nice weekend! Looking forward to it!!! I'll be working on the house of course, but sick of this wet tent feeling!!! gross!

Good idea for Greg to stay back and mow. That way he can have his weekend to enjoy!!! I'll try to mow tomorrow morning! It needs it. I don't think Papabear put the spark plug in yet. That's one thing I won't do. hee hee

Auntie Cyndie... that smoothie sounded VERY yummy! Wish I knew what they used, I'd try to make it at home. Did you see them make it?

Glad you had a good visit with all your old co-workers! Always nice to catch up. Hope they all are doing well?!!

Any plans this weekend ladies?!? Doing anything fun? Relaxing?
As I said we'll be working on the house. The big beam should be going up! Exciting! They are doing a Poutine Fest this weekend. I really wanted to go, but no one to go with. Older Cub is my guy for that and he's out of state, and with the working on the house, I should not be leaving my PB's side. I have to keep doing that "couples activity"... hee hee.

Hope you both have a good day! Soon I'll be going to see my parents for a last lunch. Then Sunday they head home. Sounds like they had a good visit here! I'm happy for them!

Okay... have a great start to your SUMMER!!! Love ya! emoticon emoticon

Missy it's not because you're getting old that you do what you want no matter what people say, it's just that your are mature enough to take advice with a grain of salt. :) I've always hear advice and opinions are like a holes, everyone has one. LOL!

We did visit with dad yesterday and he was in a good mood again! :) I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop now. LOL!

Cyndie, it sounds like you had a wonderful time yesterday at lunch and dinner. :) I bet it was fun catching up with your old boss too. :)

Finally no rain here for the next 3 days. Then Sunday it gets back to the 80's and Mon thunderstorms again. :( Greg needs to mow so instead of him having to do it tomorrow, I'll suggest I got to rehab myself today so he can get it done. :)

Missy, I'm proud of you and Papa Bear for renovating your home! That's much smarter financially than picking up and moving! And it's good that he gave you that much-deserved apology!

Susi, you're right, fetching is important when the guys are working on a project. I like to call it a "couples activity". And I agree with you, I think the Q's on our game are going to be brain teasers!

Today was the day I had lunch with my old boss and dinner with the ladies from the office I retired from. I had a chocolate smoothie, with banana and peanut butter in it. It was good, but I wouldn't pay for it!

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

I don't like mowing, but will do it. Since he's doing most of the work in the house, mowing is something I can do to help. It poured all day, still is, so no mowing today!

Susi, I know I'm getting older when I start ignoring what people think!!! I remember many people saying " you'll know when you are older, when that happens". I like listening... and I'm sure some are JUST trying to help with their advise, but that is all it is... THEIR advise, and I'll take it and do what I feel is best for me, PB and the cubs!

Hope you are having a good day. Did you visit with your Dad today?

Auntie Cyndie... hope you are having a good day too! Went to the gym?!? I still have to get there myself, but need someone to go with. I dropped my card, so I can only go as a guess with PB or my friend. PB goes during lunch time (grrrr) and my friend just left for TX. When back she's hoping to go with her husband (he needs to go). BUT if he fights her, she'll go with me she says. Hard one...

Anywho, had a moment before our haircuts, so thought I'd check in.
Have a good afternoon ladies!

I'm glad PB apologized. :) I wouldn't mow at all from now on if I were you, but I know you probably like doing it or you wouldn't. :)

Don't ever listen to anyone telling you what to do with your own home. They aren't the ones who live there and they aren't the ones who would benefit from selling it in the future. I can't believe the nerve of some people. I'm sure it was your FIL, but still. Oh my. :(

Of course we know you would be helping PB with the reno! :) Greg always tells me it's more of a pain to keep running after the stuff he needs than it is to do the work. If we bring the stuff to them they can get the job done faster. :)

LOL! The Q's on the alphabet game are going to be tough, so I think it's fine to make up some words for that one. LOL! Either that or cheat and look it up. :)

Hello ladies! Happy Thursday?!! It's pouring here, but better today than the weekend!

Auntie Cyndie... glad you enjoyed your birthday greeting, hee hee. I just had to do it. I'm so happy Jimmy spoiled you! He is a keeper! The earrings sound beautiful and the gym and then smoothie, YUMM! I'm with you ladies, I'm a cheapy! The only time I get a smoothie is the free sample at the mall and then sometimes get one at the fair. They use mango and stuff I don't usually buy (again because I'm cheap) hee hee. What flavor did you get? Glad you enjoyed it!

Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday!!! So when is the night out with your boos and then girlfriends?!? Maybe tonight? If so, have fun!!!

Susi... congrats on the A+ at the dentist! Good girl!!! Also congrats on the elliptical. Even better that you love doing it! I myself, HATE the elliptical. Funny how that is, hee hee. Glad you wanted to do more. That had to be a good sign!!! You keep going our super star!

Very nice of Greg to pick up some meals to make it easy for you. Glad it helps, and things you like! Mac-N-Cheese sounds really good right now, hee hee.

With this reno, we are trying to be good and still eat well. I know with limited kitchen, etc it's easier to just eat out, grab something quickly. But we are going to be good! Our grill still works, so even if we do salads and grill chicken, I'm good. (wink)

I actually told the story of the meatloaf to my friend and how it was the one meal I was not forced to eat growing up! He is a chef, so wanted to make his version and see if I would like it. So that is why he made it. I just didn't know it was going to be then. It was tolerable, but I won't eat it again. Just not a fan. My dad loved it though, and my Mom... she ate it all!

The mower, it was the spark plug that was gone. He came at his lunch to check it out and saw I wasn't stupid! hee hee. I told him even if he fixed it, I wouldn't mow now... the sun was out and it was hot and muggy! Raining today, so we'll see for Friday morning. I get hot easy, so has to be in the cooler temps. He did say sorry later.

I think we both are stressed by the reno project. Everyone is telling us how he can't get it done, it's not smart loosing a room, put the dining room here, living room there, etc. I'm doing okay with it, but Papabear lets it get to him. Last night I told him IT IS OUR HOME, that means it's what WE want! I'm not living my life of the "what if's" and "when I sell..." At this point, I'm living in it and going to enjoy it for a long time!!! So make it what I want.

He worked with his Dad the other day and I think that is where most of it is coming from. His thought was to just move. My SIL right now is in the process of fixing up her's to move. We are not like that. I don't need more house, just need to use the rooms I have, and that is what I'm doing.

Anywho, it's coming along great and I'm proud of PB for all he's doing. Don't worry ladies, I'm there helping as much as I can too... hee hee. Working my arm muscles and picking up stuff, holding stuff, working the legs... doing the running to get this or that for PB. It's a work out and I'm happy to help! Can't wait till I can post DONE pics!!! hee hee

I noticed we are almost done the alphabet game game. I'll have to find another game on that idea. I have seen it many wants... like you answer different questions... Glad you all are enjoying it! Makes it easier for me right now... (wink)

On that note, have to get back to cleaning. I told PB I'd vacuum more from last night's mess and finish packing the kitchen. I also want to clean the bathroom and keep up with the vacuuming of our bedrooms (helping with the dust). Then later lunch with GH and hair cuts tonight.

Have a good day ladies! emoticon emoticon

Cyndie, I got an A+ at my check up. :) It's been a long time since I've had anything wrong. I told my doc I better knock on wood. LOL!

Jimmy is a keeper too! :) The earrings sound so beautiful. I wouldn't buy a smoothie for that much either. You can make them at home very easily if you have a blender. :) I've done it off and on. You would love them and they are so easy and fun to make. :) Even on sale that is expensive! Yikes.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful birthday! :)

Susi, you are right, if people don't do the rehab, they are only cheating themselves. We all know, that's the same way a diet is. I'm so happy to hear that you've moved on to the elliptical at rehab. I know you're looking forward to doing more of it next week! How was the dentist? Dinner sounded good!

Missy, I love the birthday greetings from Garfield! That's too bad for you about the meatloaf, but good for your dad. At least you had more time with your folks. As for Papa Bear, I'm with you, no more nice surprises for him! Thanks for "borrowing" the alphabet game for us!

My birthday was awesome! Jimmy gave me some pearl earrings (my birthstone) with tiny diamonds. We went to the gym early in the morning. Afterward, I got a free birthday smoothie. They're "on sale" on the weekends for $5, so your cheap friend had never had one. It was good, but I won't be buying them!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Missy, I can just imagine the kinds of questions PB asked, is there gas in it? DUH! Men can sometime be buggers! I would let him mow from now on, your place is planting flowers and taking care of the outside pretties. :) I don't blame you for hanging up, it was mean of him. :(

They had me starting the elliptical today. :) Only one minute but they said it was better starting out like that. Oh the elliptical is always my favorite and better than the treadmill as far as I'm concerned. :) Easy breezy for me, wanted to do more on it but they said not this week. *sigh*

Greg picked up Marie Calendar's mac and cheese, beef pot pie and chicken pot pie for me for supper tonight. Easy! I need easy right now, the humidity has me crazy. Between breathing and sinus it's a mess. :( Several at rehab were worse than me though. :(

Sorry your friend made meat loaf but it is your dad's favorite. It would have been nice if she would have made a small something else for you. Or did she know you don't like it? I would have made you your own meal. :)

Cyndie, I think when I was thinking of Jimmy joining you for dinner, I was thinking it was your old boss, his wife, etc. Not for the girls night out of course. BUT now that I type this, that's assuming your boss was male, hee hee. Anywho, enjoy your time out and celebrating!!!

Is Jimmy or Kim doing anything special for you today? I hope so!! Happy birthday! xoxo

Susi... That's awesome that your dad was in a good mood and you had a nice visit! I know you treasure those days since they are less and less. Thank-you for the love back from him!

Hee hee... I stole that ABC game from my 5% challenge team. Glad everyone is enjoying it! Good to see Patti playing too!

Wish I was smart enough to help you with putting everything back on your computer like you had it. My family makes fun of me because changes like that make me crazy! I'm so not good with most changes. Good luck!!!

You're right, them cheating in rehab only hurts them. Glad you are a good girl, and awesome on the progress!!! You will always be our super star!!!

I tired to go out and mow the lawn for Papabear as a surprise... well the mower isn't working... GGGRRRR! I called him... and ruined my surprise, but it wasn't much a surprise since I couldn't do it... asking if he knew if it was broken, or what? After asking me all the stupid questions, like I never mowed a lawn in my life before, he got mad and said it was hard to help when he can't see what is wrong or what I was doing wrong. GGGRRRR.

There was no need to say any of that! It's just lawn mower, snow blowers, and this truck are all old and end up not working, and especially when we need them! I just told him I was hanging up because he was being mean! No more surprises for him!!! hee hee

I saw my parents last night. It was a nice evening. My friend made my dad's favorite, meatloaf, and what I hate!!! The one meal my Mom would not make me eat! BUT I tried it... still don't like it... and had more potatoes, hee hee.

Today is cleaning, packing the rest of the kitchen, mowing the lawn if it ever works, and laundry! Hope you ladies have a good day!

Happy birthday again Auntie!!! Hoping it's a WONDERFUL, loving, and fun, day!!

Cyndie, a woman just doesn't want hubby dragging along on a girls day out anyway. :) It's our time to get away from them for a while. :) Hehe!

Happy Birthday!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My pc is running good. I just can't seem to get some things back. I can't remember how to put my saved sights on my upper task bar so I can get to them, like for paying bills and such. It's maddening. Other than that it's great at least for now. :)

Maybe I'm not the big star of rehab but I seem to be making better progress than most of the others. We don't all have the same level of problems though and probably some of them are worse off than me to begin with.

I have noticed though a couple of the newer guys kind of cheating on their time on the machines. Not that I was purposely watching them but when they get off and I'm on there next I notice their timer hasn't run down. They are only cheating themselves. :(

This morning at 8 I have my 6 month dental check up then rehab this afternoon.

HUGS!

Happy Birthday, Spark Twin! I miss you, and hope you're doing well!

Missy, it's okay that you assumed, and you're right, Kim does live alone. I wonder if she had a (female) roommate if they would split the kitchen duties. Oh well. And I'm with Susi, I'm okay with no QOTD. And I'm really enjoying the alphabet game! Have a good time with your family and your project!

Susi, how is your computer acting? Computer problems can be such a pain! Way to go on doing your bike with weights! As we've said, you're definitely going to be the star of rehab. Thank you for the hugs and kisses from your dad. I'm happy to hear that today's visit went well!

Jimmy won't be joining me when I dine out. We are the opposites who attracted. He isn't interested in eating with my ex-co-workers. I guess it's hard for him, since he didn't work there. That's okay with me. Especially, when I'm out with "the girls".

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!



Cyndie

Missy, wow on the walls being gone. That's the easy part. LOL! We only took the upper half of our dinning room wall out a good while back to make the breakfast area through it and that was a big enough mess! It's worth it though. :)

We did have a good visit with dad today. He was in an amazingly good mood. :) I gave him hugs and kisses from you and Cyndie and he said thank you and sent some back to you both. :)

It sure sounds like your mom and dad are having a wonderful time with all the visiting. :) I'm so glad they could stay a while and do that. :) I know it will be a bit hard seeing them go again though.

No question of the day is fine. :) Anyway, we still have the alphabet game, and I'm enjoying that! :) I know you'll be in and out and no schedule with us during the summer and sure understand. I know you won't leave us, know why? Cause Cyndie and I will have to come there and knock you around for a while if you did and it wouldn't be a fun visit. Hehe! I do hope you know I'm kidding. :)

HUGS!

Hello Ladies!!! It's been a crazy weekend, but all good!

1st, before I forget... Happy Birthday to Melissa! I know she was on a cruise, not sure if she's back. But seems like she'll have a good birthday. Maybe she'll pop in... or at least tomorrow to wish her "twin" a happy birthday (wink).

Susi... I saw what Greg made on FB. VERY nice! It does look heavy and good thinking on protecting the hutch... and dollie! See you two a very talented!!!

Hope your daddy is doing well? Tell him we say HI! Hope he has a good day and good visit with you and Greg!!!

Ollie will be a great big brother to someone! Best of luck to them!!!

Sorry to read about your computer! I sadly, know how that is!!! Really *ucks!!! Hope all is running smoothly very soon!

Auntie Cyndie... I used to cook and now feel depressed about it. Hard to find healthy and with two boys who are picky still at home, make it hard. Papabear is MUCH better, but still wants the same ol same ol. He'll try new things, but is picky too. I feel like I'm going backwards. Made meals, now turning into Kim... hee hee. I always wondered if living a lone makes a difference. Not worth a week of leftovers when you are 1. Opp's maybe she does live with someone, sorry... There I go assuming.

We got your rain Sunday... all day! Looks like some is coming this week too, but higher up from us, so we'll get spot showers, which is good! I need to be like Jimmy and go mow the lawn! hee hee

I pretty much do the housework. Papabear will vacuum if I ask. Actually, he's do it all, but like you ladies, I'll just have to redo it, so I just do it. hee hee.

Glad you had a good day with Kim! Pizza is always nice.
Does she have plans for her Mama's birthday?!!?

Hope you have fun going out with your old boss and old coworkers! That should be a couple nice evenings! Does Jimmy go too?

Good girl on exercising!!! Proud of you BOTH!!!

We have been busy...
LMFP did leave happy and it turned out a nice day. She must of knew it was the last time she'd see me, because when leaving she gave me lots of kisses and hugs! Very sweet! I'll miss that Mom, she was good... the grandmother too!

I didn't go to Younger Cub's Girlfriend's graduation, just him. The weather got chilly, but no rain, so that was nice!

Friday night we started demo for our BIG summer project! Walls coming down!


Reason why I have been MIA... sorry! It'll be like this all Summer. I'll do my best to keep popping in! I miss you ladies!!!

Saturday we went to a mini reunion of my Dad's cousins with my parents. It was very nice seeing everyone!!! Then it was back home for more demo, hee hee.

Sunday was church, Lunch with my Daddy and for Father's Day, all Papabear wanted to do was DEMO! hee hee


Next wall...



This wall is load bearing, so the temporary wall will be next. My house is a mess, but I'm SO excited!!! My dream is coming true!!

Last night we went to my Mom's cousin's house... the lady who they are staying will... for dinner and a visit. It was very nice!

Tonight I'll see my Mom at my friend's house... she's cooking them dinner and a visit. Then Thursday we have haircuts and my parents will pop in to say hi to her. And Friday I'm having lunch with some more of my Mom's relatives (at the lady they are staying with's house). Sunday morning they start and make the trip back home!

They have been busy visiting and it seems like they are happy! I think they had a good visit here! It was great seeing them!

Then I'm back to full on helping Papabear with our reno! So I'll try my hardest to keep you updated and posted on everything! Know I'm NOT leaving, just busy. My computer and TV are set up in my basement... hee hee. I think we get down here at 10-11pm for a rest, so I've been reading, but not always posting, sorry!

Hope you ladies have a good day! I have to bring my friend to her appointment soon, so should get ready. I finished my little food shopping right before coming on here. I felt like you ladies food shopping at 9:30am on a Tuesday!!! hee hee... it was nice! Lots of older people and they are VERY kind!! The old man behind me was so pleased I put the divider stick down for him between our food on the belt. I was shocked, because I always do that, but I guess LOTS don't either. It's hard for lots of people, these days, to be nice! So sad!!

Have a good day! emoticon
Sorry no QOTD... emoticon emoticon
I chose to say HI to you ladies instead of posting it. Hope that is okay?!!

Cyndie, happy early birthday! And I'll tell you that again on Wednesday. Hehe! I'm glad you made it to the gym! :)

Thursday sounds like it's going to be a really wonderful and fun day for you! I know you will enjoy it. :)

We'll visit dad this morning then when we get home I'll do my in between rehab work out time. LOL! That's my exercise bike. I've been doing a little at home with my 5 lb. weights, probably shouldn't since we do them in class. I have to use 3 lb. ones there we do things my shoulder won't take with anything higher.

HUGS!

Susi, I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one who prefers to clean alone. As you said, at least Greg tries to help. And you are right. As far as I'm concerned, any meal I don't have to cook is a good one!

Jimmy and I did get to the gym today. I guess I needed to go. Wednesday is my birthday. Thursday I'm having lunch with the man I worked for for 21 years, and dinner with the ladies from the office I retired from.

Hi Missy! I hope you had a good weekend!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!


Cyndie

Hello ladies. Popping in for a minute. I need to run some errands and I'll be back and read all your post. (wink) Sorry.

Just wanted to say HI, so you knew I was still here.
Be back later!

Cyndie, I would much rather clean alone too. Greg helps, but there are things I need to go back and do again, you know how we women are, things have to be done a certain way. I don't tell him that though, he does try. :)

I'm glad you all had a good time yesterday. :) I'm sure the pizza was good. :)

HUGS!

Susi, I know you already know it, that Greg sure is a keeper! I am laughing at him wanting to put his creation on your crochet doily!

And you're right, I did need some time to myself yesterday. I have always preferred to do my housework when Jimmy isn't at home. The way our work schedules were, it was easy.

Kim did come over today with pizza for lunch. We all had a good time. And I do agree with you, I sure hope that young lady started cooking. I hate that I lost track of them!

Enjoy your evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

My computer messed up big time this morning. :( I had to dump everything and start from the beginning, as in factory condition. :( I've had a crazy time getting things put back on. I couldn't get my nortons on and had to do live chat and she took over my pc and did it for me. Took her about an hour. :(

I'll eventually get it all back on but it will take a good bit of time. I've never had to do this since it was new and I forgot how much work it was. :( Oh well.

HUGS!

Cyndie, Greg snuck around and made that and surprised me. :) It's really heavy, made from rocks, and he wanted to put it on the hutch. I made him put a rag towel down first so it wouldn't scratch it. He wanted to put it on my crochet doily. NOT! LOL!

I sure hope that lady started cooking since they had a baby.

Jimmy knew when to cut the grass. :) I think the laundry and housework could wait so you could have taken a ride with Jimmy, that is unless you needed some me time. :) I sure cherish mine. :)

HUGS!
