Cyndie, I'm glad you thought of the new thread, I sure didn't. LOL!

Our Menard's is 2 story too, but there isn't all that much interesting stuff up stairs.

I think Missy is right, you do deserve the me time the rest of the week. :) That was nice of your neighbor to give you the tomatoes. :) We had the combination sandwiches last week. I don't really call them BLT's anymore cause there are too many other things we put on them. LOL!

Tonight is left over spaghetti for Greg and sausage for me, then tomorrow night left over sloppy joes. :)

HUGS!

Missy, I forgot to mention to you that it's time to make the September thread. It's good that you went with Papa Bear to run errands. Susi is right, Jimmy is a great one to get distracted by a hardware store. Cincinnati has a 2 story Menard's that he's crazy about!

Susi, I do agree with you. Unfortunately, over the years, Kelly has proven that she can't be trusted. I do think that it's great that Greg helps you with the housework. Jimmy's a good guy, but he doesn't do that!

I do like the way Missy thinks when it comes it comes to "me" time for me for the rest of the week. Today one of our neighbors gave me some tomatoes out of her garden. I think we're having BLTs tomorrow!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, I hope your mail is coming in now. Yep, you can usually depend on if you don't see mine in the morning that you aren't getting it. :) Unless on the very few occasions I sleep in. LOL!

I know Kelly is stuck in the middle, but on the other hand she shouldn't be telling TJ things I tell her unless I tell her she can. She knows the situation between us all too well.

Oh, I thought LMrFP was teething, sorry about that. I'm sure he'll get use to being without his mom. I guess that's what happens when they don't get a sitter occasionally when they are babies so they can go out and get away for a little while. On the other hand it use to be that parents always took the kids with them when they went away.

It's good you went with PB for the errands or he may have gotten distracted and not got them finished. :) Some men end up in hardware stores and such and never finish up. Hehe! I know he will make the perfect bench for you! :) He's like Greg, pretty handy with things. :)

I made sloppy joes this morning and have them in the crockpot for supper. :) It was really nice out so I sat on the deck with Greg for a while, he was shucking more seeds for Ralph. LOL! I told him he missed his calling he should have been a chef. LOL!

HUGS!

Good morning ladies.
I knew this morning when I didn't see a message that Susi posted, that I must not be getting my SP emails again. I went and redid it. Hoping it helps.

Susi... nice to read you got out again for the paper. You seem so happy to have things getting back to normal, health wise. I'm happy for you!

Sadly you are probably right about Kelly being a double agent. But maybe she's just torn and in the middle?!!? Trying to think positive, hee hee. Anywho, I would just keep it to yourself too. Praying the *itch pays you back!

LMrFP is not teething, he's just missing his mom! He was with her everyday for his whole 11 months! The other thing that gets him fussing is when other parents come and drop their children off. He hates doors opening and closing. So when he finally stops, a parents comes and goes. I know he'll get used to it... I HOPE... but till then it's loud and fussy mornings! GGGrrrr.

Auntie Cyndie... you are so good! Working out and cleaning!?!! That gives you rights for "me" time the rest of the week, hee hee. Hope you are able to do some of that! It must have sunk in by now that you are retired. What such a good feeling. AND you are enjoying life!!! Love it!!

I ran my errands with Papabear last night. Probably should of stayed home to clean, but didn't. hee hee. Well it did start with having to drop off the car at the shop. So he needed me to follow to bring him home. While at that end of town, we stopped at some stores. I was looking for a bench to put at the door, and hold the bags from the children. That should look nice.

I thought of a shelf Susi, but I don't want the space to feel crowded, so a bench will be good, and also during the winter months (boots, etc.). I didn't see anything I liked, so I guess it's PB to the rescue... time to make what I envision, hee hee.

Well guess who's crying again... LMrFP and B. aaaaggghhh. Time to change diapers, then snackies and maybe put LMrFP to nappy! He's been back today!

I'll check back later. Hoping I'll get my emails, but if not, I'll come on to make sure.
Have a good day ladies!

Cyndie, we all know TJ has no shame about anything. It sticks in my crawl, but I'm trying hard to get past it. I won't be saying anything to Kelly, I think she's a double agent most of the time.

I'm glad you had a good day and could get your cleaning done while Jimmy was gone. :) I like doing mine alone too but Greg is a good help when I really need him to be. Great job on getting to the gym! :)

Susi, thank you for venting, but I'm sorry that you needed to. As for TJ, she has no shame! I would be afraid to make claims like that! And as for her buying the fireplace heater, that's bull... I can't believe she hasn't paid you yet. I guess the only positive is that she hasn't been in touch.

Missy, what a weekend you had! It definitely was emotional in a good sort of way. You were wise to leave Papa Bear alone. That's what people need sometimes. As for the daycare kiddos, I just love their nicknames. I hope that you had a good day with them!

Jimmy and I had a nice day. We went to the gym. He went out to run errands in the afternoon. I stayed home and did housework, so I was happy about that. Tomorrow is Bible study.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, I did get out to get the paper yesterday. :) I did pretty good too.

I am trying really hard to ignore TJ, it just keeps sneaking back in my minds eye. I know I'll get over it eventually. On the other hand she hasn't called or texted me since the funeral so I'm happy about that! :) Yea, I'm giving her till the end of the month to send a payment then I will be reminding her for sure!

I'm glad B didn't fuss any longer than he did and I sure hope he didn't start back up. You have to feel bad for LMrFP because of the teething. Are they sending anything to help with that?

I'm sorry your weekend was so emotional, but it was a good emotional most of the time. :) I'm happy for all of them. :) And it was a nice get away for you and PB. I feel bad for you that the cubs didn't go though, but..they must have needed that bro time.

It sure sounds like you're getting the kitchen back in order now. :) Did you figure out a place to put the kids things? Maybe a nice little wall shelf inside the door or something. :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Welcome back Auntie Cyndie.

Auntie Cyndie... glad you had a good time visiting your parents! Sounded like fun... eating, shopping, hanging together! Bonus that Jimmy helped them with the toilet. Very nice!!

Glad you had a relaxing Sunday. When you talk about reading the newspaper I always think of my parents and Grandmother. That is what they each did Sunday morning. Glad you had your relax time.

Good job getting that food shopping done. emoticon

Susi... hee hee, like Auntie, I love hearing the Ralph (& Alice) stories. Loved your "camping" get away they had! Made sense, hee hee! Love that Greg was helping prepare Ralph's dinner. I'm sure Ralph just wanted to feel like he helps, so that is why he only had some... hee hee.

Glad you are 75% better and improving each day!!! I'm happy you are better! Hoping it continues! Proud of you taking care of you (Greg too)!

I was happy you still got out and did a drive. You needed to get out and the drive seemed perfect! Glad it helped. Next time, tell Greg "I'll get the paper", hee hee.

Sorry about Truex. Maybe he'll be better this coming weekend! Fingers crossed!
Glad Greg helped you with the house work! He's a keeper, as we know!!

Now TJ... aaaggghhhh. Of course she would use times like this for getting attention. Just ignore her. Your Dad would probably help all three of you, we know this, but... again, just ignore her!!

As for the fireplace, I'm so with you!!! If she owes you and she's buying things, like that especially, she should have money to pay you back!!! I wouldn't wait, but be good and if you don't see a payment, I would be all over that!!! Good luck!!!

Hope your blood work went well this morning.

Today was the 1st day back with B. He's doing okay. Came in fussing... lasted about 20 minutes... and was just watching. Now he's playing, a lone, but playing and not crying, so a plus!!!

We have LMrFP... he was actually doing pretty good, but now getting into a mood. Thinking a 1/2 hour nap is needed. Mom doesn't want him to have a morning nap (me either because Friday he didn't even sleep in the afternoon nap because he had a 20 min morning nap I think). But I'm gonna try it. So far, just crying, but at least he's not out here with Band making his sad.

We had a good, emotional, weekend. Saturday we went to CT to celebrate one of my nephews making his professions, to be come a priest. There were 10 of them. Wishing them all the very best! Then Sunday was my sister and her husband renewing they vows... 25 years... it's actually today! It was all a very nice weekend seeing them all, spending time with them all.

I think Papabear and I got emotional, wishing our cubs would of come. Originally Older Cub had to work, but gave his hours to someone else, and invited his brother down for the weekend. So they had a Bro weekend. That was great, but seeing how everyone was there (of my sister's family) who knows when that will happen again... wish the cubs were there. Oh well...

Monday was relaxing, food shopping, and did some things around the house. I think PB still had that emotional-sad feeling, so I let him be and just relax. Not do too much. He did run power to the plugs in my kitchen so I could move my microwave in it's spot. And I set up my "command" station, hee hee. The back of the door I have my calendar and appointment cards etc. It was on the other side of the door, but we put it inside now since it's no longer a hallway (wink).

Well I have to get back to the kiddos. M is starting her 1/2 days this week, so have to get her eating lunch soon. Mom picks her up at 11:30am. Should be interesting with the other kiddos. I think B is gonna definitely cry! Praying I'm wrong...

Have a good afternoon ladies! emoticon emoticon

Ok, I need to vent. *sigh*

So this morning I went to TJ's page. She's doing with dad like she did with mom when she passed away. They are helping her. She's had this really bad huge place on her leg for a long, long time. It looked really horrible. I think it was just a really bad case of psoriasis but she claims her doctor had her doing chemo and everything else for it and it wouldn't clear up.

She posted pictures of it on her page stating that dad always prayed it would go away. Guess what? Two days after his funeral it pretty much disappeared. He must have asked on her behalf for it to be clear again, she said. Geeez! I'm sorry, I don't believe a word of it. I know it was ugly but things like that just don't clear up in a couple of days.

I know the Lord can and will preform miracles but that??? It just yanked my chain that she is using him for stuff like that just like she did mom even after her not paying much attention to them when they were still with us.

Then I scrolled on down her page... She went to Lowe's to get something and said she came out with a new fireplace heater for her back room. Okay, I didn't say anything to her last month about not getting a payment cause I do know she was running short on money from eating out so much when we were at Grant. But yet she had the money to buy something like that??? Hmm? If I don't get a payment this month I will be reminding her for sure!!!!

Thanks for letting me get that out. :)

This morning I need to go get my blood work. I have the doc's appt on Friday, so I hope it gets there on time, at least I think it's on Friday. LOL! If not, he'll get it anyway just a little late.

Other than that, I have no plans for today, but I will need a nap. :)

Thank you Cyndie! :)

HUGS!

Susi, we can definitely share my parents, for as long as they last! I try to do like you did, and be realistic about the fact that they will be 84 and 91 this Fall.

I just love your Ralph stories. I think your response about him and Alice going camping for the holiday was cute!

I'm so excited to hear about how well you did without the Inogen today!

The big excitement around here was that Jimmy and I went to the grocery store today. We should have gone yesterday, but I just didn't feel like it.

As always, I appreciate my NASCAR update!

Wishing you a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

I was wrong. Ralph did eat some of the seeds Greg put out for him but he still opened some fresh ones too. LOL! Greg did get to see him today. He didn't yesterday and worried about him. I told him they all went camping at the lake for the long weekend. LOL!

I did great today! I went and got the paper and did NOT take the Inogen! I was only a teeny tiny winded but it wasn't anything I couldn't easily handle by just breathing the right way. :) I'm at least 75% back to good again! :)

Kelly did finally pick up the stuff I had for her. She is on vacation this week and Kyle is next week. He was off today though. They are having their kitchen renovated and they need those 2 weeks for it so they split the vacation so someone would be there for the workers.

Greg piddled outside today of course. :) It rained this morning and really hard last night, but it cleared up and it's been nice out since. :)

I hope you had a good day.

emoticon emoticon Cyndie, thank you for sharing your parents with me. :) I'm an orphan now. :) Your parents may be slowing down, we all do, but I'm sure they still have a long way to go. :)

I'm glad the plumbing was an easy fix. Those are the only ones Greg will do. He'll paint and wallpaper up a storm and just about most of anything else.

I kept telling Greg that Ralph may only like the fresh seeds from the hosta that he opens himself so it may have been a useless thing for Greg to do. But he loves that little guy and has him spoiled. LOL!

I relaxed with the Sunday paper before I even started with my cleaning for a change. The race was supposed to be on at 6 last night but they got rain, it didn't start till 10 and wasn't over till 2 this morning. Truex came in 15. I was awake again by that time. Greg said he was having a lot of car troubles. :(

Susi, I am taking your words to heart when it comes to my parents. Meanwhile, I am happy to share them with you!

The plumbing problem was right up Greg's alley, Jimmy had to put new innards in a toilet. My dad isn't handy, so they appreciated it!

Thanks for reminding me of the Newman's Own pizza! It's good that you took yourself out for a drive!

I'm glad to hear that you're taking it easy when it comes to the housework, and it's great that Greg helped (when he wasn't busy helping Ralph) LOL

I was busy doing laundry today. Once I got that out of the way, I was ready to relax with the Sunday paper!

Wishing you a wonderful evening! Go, Truex!

Hugs!

We had a little rain today but it was a nice one. :) We needed it anyhow. :) Greg went out piddling for a little bit. He just came in and showed me some hosta seeds he broke open for Ralph. LOL!

He did help me do some cleaning this morning but I only did the essentials. It wore me out after not doing it for a little while, but I am rested up.

The race in on at 6 this evening and he needs pizza. LOL! Gonna be a frozen Newman's Own. :)

I texted Kelly this morning to remind her she had some things here she needed to pick up. She was at Kyle's work with him and I haven't heard from her since this morning. :( I get tired of stuff like that. Oh well. :(

Cyndie, I'm glad you're back safe and sound! :) It is hard seeing the parents slow down. It's easy to say you're preparing but in reality you really don't in your heart. Sorry to say that though. :(

Yikes, a plumbing problem. :( That's one thing Greg refuses to do along with electrical work. Oh if the commode needs a new handle or insides he'll do that or change a washer or sink handles but the rest we have a plumber for. LOL!

Each day I'm doing so much better. :) Greg went and got the paper yesterday morning before I got back up. I had the NEED to drive, so I went out alone and drove around the neighborhood a couple times and I was satisfied for a while anyway. LOL! It does still feel odd not going to visit with dad, but I will get use to it. :)

I'm so happy your folks still love hearing from us. :) You have to share them with me now. :) I'm glad you had a wonderful time with them. I'm really happy that you can go now any time you want to visit. :) I'm sure they are too! :)

Again, thank you so VERY much!

HUGS!

Susi, I'm happy to be back home! I'm happy to be back here with my Pine Valley Gal Pals! I'm also happy to hear that you're sleeping better! I know that it's an adjustment period. You and Greg keep taking care of yourself! I'm praying!

Missy, I am excited to hear that things are going pretty well with the daycare kiddos. Also, I was glad to hear that your dishwasher is working. When it comes to being an Empty Nester, I have confidence that you and PB will adjust!

My parents were happy to hear from my Pine Valley Gal Pals. I admit, I can see them slowing down, so I'm trying to prepare myself. Still, we had a good time: eating out, shopping,a slide show, and a plumbing project!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Missy, I did sleep well again. I have been waking in the night still but only for about an hour then back to bed and sleep. That usually never happens but it could be a trend now. :)

Yes, Greg is still worrying but he is doing better now about it. :) He's only coming in to check on me about every hour instead of every 15 min. LOL! At least he isn't nagging me, that really irks me when I'm not feeling well. I've always been one, just like dad, that if I'm sick I want to be left ALONE!

I do hope your mom is going to be okay. She is still in my prayers as you all are. I worry about her and your dad too. How is he doing?

Congratulations to your sister and hubby, and the one who is becoming a Priest. :) I heard on a sitcom once, the vows are like Twinkies they never go bad. LOL! :) Hehe!

I'm glad that whichever one of those things worked for LMrFP worked for some non screaming time. :) I have to put the little r in there or I will keep thinking of Miss. :) I hope M got unbored today. I don't think I've ever come across a kid that didn't use their imagination. I hope the parents aren't discouraging it for her. If I didn't have mine I would be a mess even at my age. LOL!

Morning Susi... Happy FRIDAY! What a week!

Hope you were able to sleep well Susi. A nice relaxing weekend planned?!! How is Greg doing? Still worried about you? I'm sure, but hope he backed off some.

I guess my Mom is getting dizzy and feeling sick again. Hoping she's okay soon. I'm sure a big part of it is she isn't drinking enough water!! She has to take a swish every minute to get used to drinking!!! Hope she's better soon.

This weekend my sister is renewing her vows. It's their 25th wedding anniversary. Also one of my nephews is having a ceremony for him... he's becoming a priest. So busy weekend, but all good!

So LMFP is quiet today. His brother A is not here because he has a fever. So not sure if it's that, or because I put the radio on loudly playing Veggie Tale's music! Either reason, I'm happy to have no screaming!

The older girl, M, is now bored with A not here, but whatcha gonna do. I tried to play with her, but she's just laying around. I'm happy she'll be going to school next week for 1/2 of the day.

That's what I realized with her... children today do not have an imagination. She's good if you give her toys that are dress up, etc. But to give her (example) empty plates and pretend there is food on there and play house, restaurant, etc. she doesn't get it. She's 4 years old. But this world has made it that they can't imagine. Crazy! Anywho, I'll set up coloring and stickers later, but for now she can play with the little ones, hee hee.

Gee there I go again going on and on. Sorry!

Have to go post for my 5% challenge. I'll be back later. Hoping you have a good day Susi... and anyone else out there reading this!

Missy, no need for you to be sorry, I have the same problem trying to remember things now days. LOL!

It is hard to cook for just 2 but you will get use to it. :) I can do for just Greg and I and also a crowd but don't ask me for anything in between, no can do. It's when I cook way to much anyhow. LOL! One thing I do know, if it isn't enough the man will find something in the fridge to make up for it. LOL!

I'm sure LMr.FP will get use to things and stop crying soon. I think, like you, it's more than likely mostly the teething. It's a shame you don't get them after that stage than during.

HUGS!

Susi, I'm sorry. I'm getting everyone's appointments mixed up. Both my parents had some this week too. I think with everything going on in the bear house, I'm lucky to still know who I am. hee hee. Sorry!

I'm hoping you get paid too! Fingers crossed!
It wasd nice that Kelly checked in on you! Someone should be! I know it's probably not your favorite thing, talking to them both, but it still is the right thing to do (check in knowing you weren't well).

Yeah, LMFP is definitely that. Aaaaggghhhh... hoping he gets better.

Glad you are still resting well. I'm sure lots in your life will change now. Hopefully more you time, and then Greg and you time!

Have to start dinner. Need to learn to cook for two, it's hard, hee hee.
Have a good evening.

Missy, it did help me a lot. :) Oh, and TJ, it would have had to be an ocean not a river. LOL! Thankfully I've not heard from her since the funeral. Kelly called a few times to check on me and I had to call her a few times with info she needed. I just hope I start seeing a check again next month.

The appointment I had was yesterday morning. :) I did post about it. :) Greg had used the non-iodiZed salt I needed that I had for my saline and he had to get get more. He got the wrong stuff. Today he went to 5 stores and they didn't have it. He had gotten non-iodiDe salt which is different. I looked at amazon and found some prefilled ones, so I ordered them. I got 100 for around 15$ so that wasn't too bad. At least I got what I needed.

I am still getting rest and better sleep. Still waking in the night but only up an hour or so and going back to bed. :) This could start a whole new trend for me. :)

I know you'll get it figured out about the sink and the day care stuff. Sounds like they don't think you have enough toys and such for them there. Hehe! I'm sure you do. :) I hope it wasn't too fussy there today.

HUGS!

Morning Susi.
Yes, that does makes sense, about not crying. We all know you have cried for your Dad many times, so he was definitely right! Glad you asked and hope it helped you feel better about it all.

This is mean, but thinking on that same line of crying... that means TJ must of cried a river!!! hee hee. She was never there for your Dad.

How are you feeling today? Getting better? Is the resting helping? I hope so. Did you say you had your appointment today? If so, good luck! (sorry if I got it wrong)

The dishwasher worked great!!! I'm thinking though, most nights I'll probably just hand wash them. With just us two, it's easier. We went from a double sink to single bowl. I was excited for this, but realizing what I was thinking is not going to work.

I thought I could keep the strainer on one side and still use it like a double sink, but it doesn't work. So now I have to put the strainer on the counter. Right now it's all good because the microwave isn't in it's spot yet (not all the plugs work yet). But when I move it over, it'll be crowded. I also have to figure out what to do with all the day care stuff that comes in which each child!!! These two families right now... each come with two to three bags! CRAZY!!!

I talked about a bench near the door and just put them there. I had a bench, but Papabear gave it to Older Cub... hummm.... Anywho, I'll figure it all out. For now I'm trying to convince parents to bring LESS!!! I do have a draw for each child to keep change of clothes and diapers, so all they really need to bring is their lunches each day!!

Sorry, I didn't mean to go on and on... hee hee.
Well have to get back to the kiddos. LMFP sounds like he might stop for a breather... fingers crossed! From 7:15 to now (just about 8am), it's been constant. He keeps checking to make sure I'm here, but cries when he sees me.

Hoping you have a good day Susi. I'll try to check in later!

I hope the dishwasher worked out okay in the long run last night. Good thing PB caught it when he did. :)

I kind of like the idea of being empty nesters. heh! Hospice called yesterday to check on me. :) I mentioned to him that I hadn't cried yet and ask him if there was something wrong with me. He said you've been taking care of him for a long time, have seen his changes often and have probably cried on those losses. Yes, I did. He told me that I have cried for him and grieved and that was just earlier than most do. That makes sense to me. :)

Okay, good Susi!
Yes, you have earned your metals for sure for all the care giving you have done!!! I'm sure there is a nice place in Heaven for you both... BUT a long time from now!!! Now is time for you and Greg to enjoy being "empty nesters", hee hee.

Aaahhh, no not really (did LMFP calm down). I had about an hour he was less fussy. I'm just SO happy the baby girl, J, isn't bothered by him crying! Just have to hope B is okay when he starts up next week. Anywho, it could be worst and they BOTH could cry, the 4 year old girl could be more moody and bratty. So counting my blessings!
emoticon

Hope you have a nice restful evening. So far it looked iffy for us. We are trying the dishwasher for the 1st time since he installed it. There was a small leak, but Papabear saw it, tighten a tube and... fingers crossed... looking good!

Missy please...NO NEED TO BE SORRY! :) Not at all. :) Greg and I have been care giving a parent pretty much since 1987 when his mom had her stroke and it's time for us to not do it anymore. :) I thought about that the other day, felt selfish for thinking that but decided we have done our duty and there's nothing to be selfish about. :) You did not sound mean at all. :)

I hope LMr.FP calmed down for you today.

AWESOME! Glad you are home! Hoping the extra meds help... and soon! Glad you weren't sending a message from a hospital bed!!! Get better soon Susi!

I was thinking, I hope you didn't take me wrong what I wrote about visiting your Dad. I can see how it could of sounded mean/rude. Sorry... didn't mean it that way.

I KNOW it will take a long while to get used to not going to the nursing home. You were such a good daughter and he was VERY blessed to have you... a daughter who cared, even on bad days. I'm sure the nurses will miss seeing you too. Wish I could give you lots of hugs and make it better. For now... prayers...

The PA visit went well and I am HOME! She gave me a prednisone shot, said that what I was taking should have started working by now. More antibiotics too. I have to take Mucinex and it just about chokes me when it starts working. :( She could hear the air going into my lungs but not coming back out. If I'm not at least 50% better by Tuesday I had to call them.

Yes, I did enjoy going to see dad at the home. Even on the bad days when we didn't stay long because of his moods. It is strange not having that to do now. I'm sure it will be for a while too.

I'm not making plans for a good while to go anywhere. Just when we can we will.

I'm glad you didn't do last night, you need a break. :) I hope LMr.FP settled down.

Morning Susi... and anyone else out there reading. emoticon

I'm so glad you were able to sleep Susi. I'm hoping some days of nothing will help you!!! It's gotta be so weird not to have to go to the nursing home?! You got your time back, but at times I'm sure you enjoyed going. I'm so happy you believe your Daddy is in a better place. He's happy up there and I'm sure remembers everything and knows how much you love him!
emoticon

Last night we did nothing for the house. Well Papabear painted some trim, but didn't install it. I think we both are getting drained. Me it's getting up early and the stress of a bunch of things... and I think my TOM is starting back up. Papabear it's all the work he's been doing non-stop. This weekend is a break for us all, so that will be nice.

That's what you need Susi... you have to now plan a get away to your favorite place!! After your health is back to good, plan a weekend get away!!!

Okay, hope you have another relaxing day!!!

I'm off to see if there is anything I can do for LMFP... aaahhhh... it's just crazy! emoticon

Missy, I'll be hoping that you're wrong about Baby H. As you said, we will hope that he is just teething. I hope that it's a good year for all of the kiddos!

Susi, I hope that all went well with your doctor's appointment! I certainly understand what you're saying about HAVING to be at your dad's funeral!

I am all packed, including hugs and kisses from my Pine Valley Gal Pals! And don't worry, I'll have some mac-n-cheese for you!

"See" you Saturday!

Hugs!

Susi, glad you got some more rest. You need it! As for Greg, yes, but you have been there before worrying about him too. That is what we do when we love someone. Praying you stay out of the hospital!

I'm thinking Baby H is going to be a LM(ister)FP. I'm hoping it's just teething and bad timing starting here. But he won't eat and cried most of the day! But I do know he's teething... so fingers crossed!

Missy, I did get another 4 hours of sleep. I do feel some better now, sleep deprivation is bad but this is worse than I've ever experienced it. :( I'm still keeping my appt in the morning for sure. Just hope they don't put me in the hospital again. :( I'm catching up the bills just in case.

Poor Greg is so exhausted, he slept a lot today. It breaks my heart he has to worry about me on top of everything else. :(

I'm glad so far so good with the kiddos. :) I sure hope it's good after the long weekend too.

Cyndie, prayers for safe travels for you and Jimmy and remember those extra hugs and kisses for the folks. :)

Morning ladies. Happy Tuesday?!?!! Is it only Tuesday, hee hee

Susi... I'm so glad you got some sleep! Hoping you fell back a sleep and are resting now!!! I think you need it. Glad you have NOTHING to do today!!! Enjoy resting!

Auntie Cyndie...Hope you have a good day packing and getting ready to leave (wink). I'm sure you'll enjoy your visit, and your parents will be SO happy seeing you!

The kidos are here and so far, same as yesterday. H is fussy and not happy, but has longer breaks in between fussing, so there is hope, hee hee. I'm just so glad J doesn't cry when he does. I just hope he's over it by next week when B comes back, but that will be after a long weekend, so I'm sure he'll be fussy again. Just hoping B is older and better and happy to see A again.

Okay, hope you all have a good relaxing day today! HUGS!

Missy, I did sleep a bit better and easier last night. Today I don't have to do anthing or go anywhere, at least not that I know of. Hopefully I can get some more rest and sleep. I'm wanting to fall back asleep right now.

Greg was adding to my stress yesterday. :( He was trying to talk me into not going and go to the hospital instead. I know he meant well and only cared about me, but, I HAD to be at the funeral. For some reason I couldn't make him understand how important it was for me to be there. He finally gave in but it sure didn't help my breathing any. :(

I'm glad the over all part of your first day was good. I hope all the rest of them are too. Of course there will be little :"hiccups" along with way but I pray for a mostly wonderful good kid year! :)

Thank you Cyndie. I'm just glad it's over with for now and I don't have to do anymore work on anything, at least not that I know of. I did have to sign off on another paper at the funeral home yesterday but that's all. :) If anyone other than Greg ever makes me responsible for them in years to come I will OPT OUT of it!

Have a safe and fun trip to visit! Give them extra, extra hugs and kisses. :)

HUGS!

Missy, I did get to see GH today. I think the fitness lady may be the sister of the boy Alexis killed in the hit and run. Other than that, I think Shiloh is going to trouble for her. Maybe they're connected? In real life, I'm happy to hear that the new year is off to a good start!

Susi, we all knew that today would be hard for you.I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems breathing I am also sorry to hear that the walk to the cemetery was hard. On a positive note, I was pleased to hear how wonderful your dad's service was!

Yes, Jimmy and I are headed to Cincinnati on Wednesday. We'll be back on Saturday. As Missy said, I do remind myself that I'm fortunate to be able to go visit my parents. I will be sure to give them hugs and kisses from my Pine Valley sisters!

Prayers and hugs!

Cyndie

Susi... sorry to read you had a hard day breathing, but I was very happy you were happy with the ceremony! And I'm glad you feel your Daddy is at peace! I'm sure he is and watching over you now!!! "Take care of my daughter God". Hoping you can rest tonight and feel better tomorrow with your day of resting!!!

Auntie Cyndie... you said you were going Wednesday, right?, to see your parents? Safe travels.

Did you see GH today? If so, what do you think this fitness instructor lady is all about?

My day went good. Over all, H was fussy, but due to teething, so I can see he'll be a good boy like his brother was. The 4 year old girl, M, is going to be a lot. She's a typical 4 year old... bored, can I do this, can I do that, etc.? I feel exhausted right now and I'm sure it's her. BUT over all, it was a good day! And if this is how this school year will go, it looks like a good year! Just have to hope when B comes back next Tuesday, he's good too!

Hope both of you ladies have a good, RESTFUL, night!

Really rough day today in more ways than one. :( I ended up calling Kelly this morning and borrowing her rollator. My breathing was getting bad enough that I needed him to push me around again. :(* It was really hard at the cemetery because I had to walk back to the grave. I have an appt. on Wed. morning early with my Pulmonary's PA.

Dad would have loved his service. :) The 3 of us were allowed to cover his coffin with the holy cloth. :) The mass was a nice one, too much incense though. Before they brought him out of the church they removed the holy cloth and put on the American flag.

At the cemetery the American Legion did a very lovely talk sending their brother off and removed the flag and presented it to TJ. Then the 21 gun salute and taps. Then Father did his reading and we all headed back to the church for a nice luncheon. I'm glad it's over now and I feel he is truly resting in peace. :)

Thank you both for all the prayers, I really needed and appreciate them more than you know.

I'm glad your sink came in at least before evening. :) With the kids back today I can imagine you at least got to test your sink. :) I'm glad you were having a good first day with them and hope it stayed that way.

I can understand your flip-floppy emotions about YC. You raised him well and things will be good for him. Although empty nest syndrome may be setting in on you and PB. You will get use to it though just like with OC. :)

Morning ladies!

Susi... my heart is also breaking for you! You have been in my prayers ALL weekend!!! I know today will be very hard!! HUGS

I have noticed the last few wakes I have gone to they do the picture collages, the videos, and mementos. So it's normal now a days, but I understand how it can be too much for family members. Since I'm huge on memories, pictures, etc. I would probably do the videos and such. That would help me I think.

I'm glad you were happy with how your Dad looked. That is always good!

Praying for you today! Hoping your breathing got better and you are okay Susi!!! Hugs, love, & prayers!

The sink came around noon that day. They call a half hour before, so was a bummer waiting, but like you said, worth it! I now have a working kitchen (stove, fridge, sink... and dishwasher, though I haven't tested it yet)!!!

The house is much closer to being done because I started day care today... had to be done & safe. I have three new ones! So we now have J & M... they are sisters. One will go part time after labor day, because she's in preschool. Then A came back with his little brother, H. H has been crying all morning, but he's been with Mom since birth, so it's expected. Right now, he's doing well. Lastly B will be back after Labor day. So far, it's been a good first day.

Speaking for 1st days, Younger Cub started his 1st day of college today!!! Hoping all goes well. As Susi had a sad weekend, ours was flip flopply, but for different reasons. That sounded wrong, but you know what I meant, right?!? We dropped YC off at college Friday. It went well and he seemed happy. He's not a fan of his two roommates, but that's how it goes, right?! I guess after two weeks they see who wants to change, and go from there.

Well have to feed the children, then going out to play some.
Susi, praying for you!!!
Auntie Cyndie... glad Kim was better! Hoping you have a good trip to see your parents. I think after what Susi is going through, it's a reminder to send love to our parents!

Susi, my heart is breaking for you!

I agree with you, the personal effects of your dad sounds a little overdone to me. Still, the most important things are: 1) You're taking care of yourself. 2) Your daddy is handsome!

As for Uncle Tom and Aunt Pauline, I'm happy you're able to make peace with that. It was definitely nice of your cousins to bring food!

Jimmy and I had a "do nothing" Sunday. We're headed to Cincinnati on Wednesday to see my folks.

You and your family remain in my prayers!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Home on a break. I think it's been awful so far. :( Kelly come in and had this big tripod board with pictures all over it, then a table full of his personal things and photo albums, and another table with a lot of military things, then she opened this large bag of Hershey miniatures and put them around on the different tables and end tables and one of each on dad's pillow. I was embarrassed. :(

I have to say though, they did make dad look wonderful! :) They gave him his favorite flat top and filled out his cheeks and bottom lip to make it appear he had his teeth. He was my handsome daddy again. :)

I got a slight cold shoulder from Uncle Tom, and Aunt Pauline. Oh well. I started getting it from TJ when the kids came in and came to me for hugs and kisses. I had to take the Inogen to use, and I must have had 20 questions about that. :(

A lot of people I didn't even know unless they were from mom's side of the family. Some I haven't seen for years and didn't recognize them. One of the nurses from MST came and she was just crying. :( They really liked him out there. :) We go back in an hour to do it all again.

Cyndie, I had another rough night of sleeping. :( I sure hope after all this is over I can finally rest and get some much needed sleep. I'm feeling the effects of it. :( Even when I would be up in the night before I at least managed about 4-6 hours, not so much right now. :(

I guess my cousins are going to take some food to the home today if we need a break to get away from things and are hungry. It's nice of them. TJ is going to stay between the "off" hours I guess in case anyone comes in then. I'll need to get away for a while.

It's going to be a long couple of days. :(

Susi, I am happy that your meds are kicking in. I do hope that your "narcolepsy" goes away soon! I think it's a good decision to step away from the chaos of your dad's funeral. I just want you to take care of yourself so you can make it through the services!

Jimmy and I had one of those days you and Greg have sometimes. We had to go to the grocery store. I try to go during the week, but I didn't work it out this time.

Hugs and prayers!

The meds are kicking in today. I even keep dozing off right in the middle of things, kind of like narcalepsy? It's crazy. I did get a regular nap too but not for too long.

TJ and TJ, Jr. got a bunch of dad's pictures out and Kelly made a board with many on it and they're taking his photo albums too. She mentioned something about a video. Well, I think they are going way overboard, but that's just my opinion. We didn't do all that stuff at mom's. Yep, just going to let it happen around me. *sigh*

I didn't do much today, trying to take it easy so I can be well enough for the next 2 days.

HUGS!

Cyndie, thank you so much for lighting a candle. :)

I'm glad you made it to the gym. And a little extra calorie burn doing the sweeping. :) I count everything! LOL!

I'm hoping the meds kick in today, since tomorrow is the calling hours and Monday the service. Since I didn't get them in me till afternoon, maybe this afternoon things will start feeling better.

HUGS!

Susi, thank you for posting the link to your dad's obituary. I did light a candle there. I am happy that you were able to get into your doctor's office today, and could get meds!

Jimmy and I did have a good day. We went to the gym. After that, he went out and cut the grass. I went out and swept.

Keeping everyone in prayer!

Hugs!

Cyndie

I got in to my doc's PA this afternoon. She said the combination of everything I've been doing, going through caused my set back. She gave me my trusty coughing pills, a heavy duty antibiotic and Prednisone.

She did say that I was doing everything right at home, but sometimes we just need that extra antibiotic to get there. I will be fine now. :)

I hope you had a good day Cyndie.

Missy, I know it was a rough day for you, and I've been thinking of you.

Dad's obit posted last night.

Cyndie, I'm glad Kim is feeling better and back to work now. :) I sure hope you and Jimmy don't catch it from being there with her. You're welcome for the prayers, they always help. :)

I'm wheezing a lot this morning so I'm going to try to get into the doc today. Just what I need at a time like this. :(

Missy, I hope you didn't have to wait all day for your sink.

Missy, I am happy that you're getting your sink finally, but sorry that you have to wait around for it. In the end, it will be worth it!

Susi, I'm glad that you're not going to try to walk the gifts down the aisle. You're already under stress, you don't need that!

Kim is feeling better and back at work. Thank you for the prayers from her Pine Valley aunties!

Prayers and hugs!

Cyndie

I went back to bed this morning after I posted and slept for 2 more hours. I was an hour late doing my morning pills but it's okay. :) After that I just sat and watched some t.v. with Greg. He decided to get some things done outside so it will be out of the way. Okay by me. :)

There were a couple things Kelly needed to know about his finances, like stop the aarp or they would be trying to deduct it from the check book and calling his pension plan and stopping that so they don't send me a check. Of course the SS too.

She mentioned the flowers, she does have good taste so I told her for her and TJ to pick them and I'll be fine with what they want. Worried about Pall bearers, I think some family but I know they guys at the funeral home will help if needed. I'm not worried about that.

I napped for about an hour in the chair then started getting robo calls. :( So I just got some of dad's paperwork together for Kelly, not all of it, but the last 2 years worth, sat in the chair and leisurely went through it. So that's finished.

I am NOT going to go anywhere today or tomorrow!!!! I need ME!

Missy, I hope your sink doesn't take all day to get there. I so hate sitting around and waiting on things to happen or someone to call. GRR!

Good morning ladies.

Susi... I'm glad you were able to get at least a little sleep! Sadly as things do settle down, you will have that time to rest. BUT we worry about getting you through this now, and staying healthy! Praying and hugs!

Auntie Cyndie... Hoping you have a good day today. I know I said it before, but hoping Kim is much better!!

Today is waiting on the sink! Hoping they come soon, so I can get out and do the errands I needed to do. I hate waiting like this. I wish they would say we are coming between this and that time. This way I could leave and be home. Of course, they would probably say "we'll be here between 7am and 5pm"... hee hee. Anywho, just wanting for the call they are coming. Guess I'm just happy they are coming!!!

Okay, just wanted to check in. Hoping Susi is able to rest more, and Cyndie you have a good day. Hugs to you both!

Thank you both for being patient with me and my ramblings. :) I did get some sleep, but not enough rest. I'll get there though.

TJ called last night to tell me what picture they picked for the obit. I couldn't tell you today which it was, I was about half asleep. I do know though I told her I didn't think I could make the walk "safely:" with the gifts, it's okay, thank goodness I got her permission..."I said dripping with sarcasm"

Cyndie, Yes, dad is in a much better place. :) He's united again with mom even though they are divorced. Neither remarried and I know in the Eyes of God they are still considered married. They are happy once again. :)

Missy, I do agree with Cyndie, that you and PB did an outstanding job raising your cubs! They are prepared to start their own lives, and they won't leave you out of them like some children do. They were raised with love and respect and know how to show that. :)

HUGS!

Susi... feel free to come here and release anytime!!! We are here for you! I'm so sorry "they" are taking over. Just know your Daddy knows how much YOU were there for him, and this stuff is just that... stuff! That doesn't make up for all the times they were NOT there for him. Anywho, praying for YOU! Hoping you are able to get some rest!

Auntie Cyndie... hoping Kim is feeling better some today?!? If so, must be that chicken soup from Mom! (wink)

Oh boy... hoping my boys fly the nest and not live with us in their 40's!!! Time for those parents to do some kicking!! hee hee There's being there for your children, and then NOT helping them. Crazy

Thanks for what you said about us and how we raised our cubs. emoticon

Speaking of Cubs... Younger Cub helped his girlfriend move into her college today. Think it was hard for him, but he's doing well. At least they have more ways to communicate with each other, than we did back in the day.

Tonight he's sleeping over with his two best friends. I'm happy they are doing it! They are good boys and I hope he stays in touch with them both!!!

Then Friday we move him into his dorm room. I got this... hee hee.
Anywho...

Hope you both have a good evening. Susi... get some rest!!!

Susi, as Missy said, our hearts are heavy for you! Since we are all believers, we know that your dad is in a better place, but that doesn't make it any easier!

Missy, you and Papa Bear are good parents, so of course, you're a little sad about the prospect of having an empty nest. Remember, you've done your job well!

As for Missy and Papa Bear doing their jobs well, I was just talking to a girlfriend about someone she knows whose 45-year-old son still lives at home. Real-life failure to launch!

Prayers and hugs!

Thank you Missy. :)

Oh my!!!! Sheridan's, the funeral home got us in at 2:30 today, so no time to rest. On top of that TJ and "TJ, Jr" went crazy there. All the plans were set, then Father comes at us with what readings do you want, what 3 musics do you want, and TJ blurts out that the 3 of us will walk the gifts up the isle without even asking me. I don't think I can make the walk that far. St. Mary's just finished a huge renovation, it's a big church and a long way to the alter.

Then there were the cards. They took over a half hour just deciding on the wording they liked the best then the card pictures. Then comes the guest book. Oh, don't forget the veteran's flag which is "presented to the oldest" so she will keep it a while, then pass it around to each of us so we can proudly display it also.

I was tired from NO sleep, shaky from no food, stressed and trouble breathing, using the Inogen and they kept messing around. I finally told them I had to go, what ever they decide is okay with me. TJ wants to put a young pix of him with the obit. Kelly has them, I told them to pick one out and I'll agree I wasn't going to go out there.

I was fixing us grilled cheese cause it was fast and Kelly called. Couldn't remember if it was the Ohio Guard or Air Guard dad was in way back when. I said Ohio Guard, well, Kyle thinks it's the Air Guard so I'll look it up. Why didn't she do that in the first place instead of bothering me knowing how I was feeling?

I'm so sorry I keep complaining, I just don't know what else to do to get it off my chest. Greg of course but he's complaining about them right along with me. I'm hoping I can get some sleep and relaxation now. Thank you for listening to me blow off.

HUGS!

It was a very long, rough night. About 4:30 this morning dad started getting worse so the called the Hospice nurse and the Pastor. Dad is still hanging in there. He wants to go so badly even said "Mom come and get me!" He's bluish up past the knees and his knuckles and fingernails are going yellow. The Hospice nurse advised me to call the family in. Now they say it could be another 24 to 48 hours.

I'm home, exhausted. The aides and nurse was in and out about every 20 minutes so they are doing their jobs. I had 2 night aides tell me that Kelly was a mean one. *sigh* I had to go, I just told Kelly to call me if there are any changes. It wasn't this hard with mom. I feel like a dishrag and Greg's getting on me about not resting enough.

Good evening ladies.

Susi, sorry you have to go there to sleep. Like Susi said, you are wearing yourself out. PLEASE do what you can to take care of yourself too! Also praying for you!

Sorry, I have to ask... what is a "military pinning"?

The next few night are TJ and Kelly duty!!! emoticon emoticon

I'm happy Michael is coming to GH too! But like you and Diane said, I hope he's a good guy! I love the Tad we all love! Today as I watched, I wondered who he would be?!? Maybe the doctor to fix Franco?!! Like Diane said, I hope he says... unless AMC comes back (wink).

Back to painting with Papabear, but wanted to check in!
Crazy to think, Friday I drop Younger Cub off to college!! Where did the years go?!! He's excited and I'm happy to see that... but the sadness is kicking in.

Okay, sorry... have a good night ladies. Susi, good luck! HUGS!

Susi, I am so sorry to hear that you're going to have to spend the night with your dad. It doesn't seem fair! I know that you're wearing yourself out! We're praying for you!

Missy, those are great photos of your kitchen! I'm sorry about your sink, though! On a happier note, I'm very impressed by your weight loss! Things are clicking for you!

I will be excited to see Michael Knight on General Hospital. I would love for him to be a good guy, but that might be too much to hope for!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

I'm so tired of crap!! Oh well. :(

Hospice has someone to stay there tonight between 9 and midnight. I guess I'll have to go then. They want to do a military pinning on dad some evening maybe around 6 but they aren't sure. I'm just plain tired. :(* Even after all that sleep I still napped for over an hour.

Missy, I love the pictures! Thanks for posting! :) Those counter tops are beautiful!! :) Mine are a marble blue and white. Sorry you didn't get the sink though.

Congratulations on watching the eating! And for losing. :) I'm so proud of you!

Morning ladies.
I'm taking a break from cleaning and organizing the house to say hello! emoticon

Susi... hee hee... I'm with Cyndie, they are not worth it! You focus on your dad, Greg, and YOURSELF!!! I'm glad you said no! Sounds like they left you and Greg that other night, so it's their turn!!! You are ALWAYS there for your dad, but if you don't take care of yourself, you won't be able to. So don't you worry about them!
emoticon emoticon

I love the picture of you and your Daddy! Glad he is back "home"! Will continue the prayers for him... and you!!!

I'm glad you got that much needed rest!! I hope you continue to rest some more. Let Kelly... I'm sorry Dr. Kelly and PITA (pain in the *ss) TJ do something for once!

Auntie Cyndie... I'm so sorry Kim has the flu. The flu in the winter is bad, but during Summer time and weather...aaagghhh! What a great Mommy you are bringing her soup and tissues! Hoping she's better really soon!

What a good girl keeping up with the gym!!! Reading how you keep going gets me excited to get my butt in gear. Soon!!! I just need the reno to be done, some time for Papabear to rest and back to the gym we go!!!

BUT... even though I'm not going to the gym, I'm watching my food! It's hard with out a kitchen too!!! hee hee On my 5% challenge team, I was the second biggest loser last week. I lost 2.4 pounds! That's still enjoying stuff I like, but making smarter choices and portions! Also I think constantly working on the house is like going to the gym?!!?? I'm happy with it!!! That's also with my weird periods, so I'll take it!!!
emoticon

Yesterday morning the counter tops were delivered! All went well and they look great!!! One bad thing though, our sink is back ordered, so not sure when that was coming in?!!? The one thing we were SO excited about was having our kitchen sink back, but we still have to wait. It's gonna be hard at times with the day care here next week and no sink, but I've been doing this ALL Summer, so what's some more time... hee hee.

Here are some pics of the counter tops... Ignore the messy back ground (like the stove in the living room). And the glass shade is not on the pendant lights... didn't want to take a chance of them hitting them and breaking them. Last, the pics are with my phone, so not the best, but something so I can show you. (wink)




Okay, guess I should get back to cleaning. I just wanted to check in... see how Susi's Dad was doing... and say Hello! Hoping you all have a good day!

Cyndie, you're right, they aren't worth it. I got ticked again last night. They didn't want dad to be alone. So I'm guessing one of them stayed the night with him. They were trying to guilt me into doing it since they both had things to do today but it didn't work. I just couldn't not 2 nights in a row.

I was so exhausted I slept for 11 hours last night.

I'm sorry to hear Kim has the flu. :( I will pray she gets better quickly. Good job on getting to the gym. :)

Susi, I'm loving the photo of you and your daddy! Also, I'm glad to hear that he's well enough to be back home! Other than that, no using your guns on your sisters. I hate to say it, but they aren't worth it! LOL

Missy, thank you for the update on your parents. I will definitely keep them in my prayers! As Susi said, I can't believe that summer is over already. It's unfair that it seems to go so much faster than winter.

Jimmy and I went to the gym today. After that, we went to the grocery store. Kim has a summer flu, so we picked up some chicken noodle soup, Kleenex, etc. for her, and dropped them off at her apartment.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Daddy's home again at MST. :) Thank you for the prayers. Right now he mostly needs them for comfort.



Now would one of you like to come and take my guns away so I'm not tempted to use them please? They are both driving me out of my iffin mind!!!! I'm so sick of TJ's digs and chips at me and the other is trying to keep peace but acting like the doctor. GAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!

Greg and I are so exhausted and I still had to go to MST and sign Hospice papers. They brought dad in when we were still there, so of course we went to see him. I texted them both that he was there and gave them the HIPPA number for Hospice. TJ said, Ok, I'll be there shortly. Well, her shortly and mine sure don't mesh. It almost an hour. I just couldn't take it any longer and texted them both I couldn't take it anymore and we were going home.

When we got to the car TJ was getting out of hers. She said I just don't want him to be alone. WHAT???? She's mad at the nurse for not catching his stroke before he did and the nurse had told me today that tj called her the other day and raked her over the coals. #*^% (&^ I've had it with her but this is no time to start WW4 with her.

Dad's not talking too much, mostly mumbling and we can't understand him. But now and then...LOL! Yesterday he blurted out...Just be that way! Then there was ..Yea, I know it, and more Oh My's He did understand he was "home" when I told him. :) He smiled and said ok. Then it was...Get my wheel chair. Hehe! And he's been scrunching his chip up and looks like Popeye. :) Then down and he Andy Gumps it. LOL! I'm just glad he's home. :)

Cyndie, you're very welcome for the nascar news. :) Greg's snack was just a ham and cheese sandwich which he requested sauerkraut on. :( And he had some bugles with that. After I fell asleep he at an ice cream sandwich and more bugles.

I'm glad you had a relaxing Sunday. :)

Missy.Of course both your parents will be in my prayers! I always pray for you and Cyndie and your families and friends. I hope they will both get home soon.

Bummer on Day Care starting back up, sure seems like that went fast. :) You can do it though and be ready with the house. :)

Morning ladies!
Susi... I love hearing all the stories about your Dad. Keep sharing!!! I'm so happy he is doing better and maybe can come home!!! Fingers crossed! I'm sure he would love that too (being home).

Sorry Kelly & Kyle ran out on you. I'm sure your Dad was happy to have you there though. As we all know, we know who is the better sibling... hee hee. Still praying for your dad! And keep the stories coming!

I was happy to read you were eating & got some sleep! Very important to keep YOU healthy too!! Oh and as for the valet, I'm all for it... hee hee. Older Cub started his valet job at our local hospital. He loved doing it and quickly moved up to being one of their best employees. He was very lucky because they also did valet at a hotel 20 minutes from his college, so that is where he has been all Summer. He said he loved working at the hospital trying to make people's days brighter... but enjoys the hotel more because they tip with $50's sometimes. It's a PRICEY hotel and in a pricey town! Anywho, glad you used the valet... I don't blame you either!

Auntie Cyndie... good girl making those better choices! Very proud of you! Saturday we decided to go out... Papabear needed a break from grilled chicken and sandwiches, hee hee. I planned on having my soup & salad, but got there and switched to fried chicken and potatoes with gravy. So naughty. It's funny because I hated how I felt after... wish I picked my soup & salad! Anywho, lesson learned and next time think like Auntie!!! hee hee God job!!!

I hated the soaps on the computer too. Praying they come back. Praying it's on TV and I don't care even if they are just 1/2 hour shows. Something!!! GH still being on helps, but miss my Pine Valley friends.

Hope you had a nice relaxing Sunday Cyndie!!! Hoping it's a good week for you and Jimmy!!!

So it's been a few hard days with my parents. As you know... I think I said it... my Mom ended up in the ER. They the next day, my Dad was there! He's okay... bad bladder infection. But I can't wait till they are back home and can see their regular doctors. Just make sure all is okay. Prayers for them is always welcomed! Thank-you!

This week is crunch time for us! My day care starts back up next Monday! The house has to be better by then! Also, Friday is drop off day for Younger Cub to college. I'm so excited for him, but sad of course too. It's gonna be so weird just Papabear and I here. I guess I'll be busy with finishing touches on the house, so that will help. Then we will redo the "boy's" room for when or if they come back. Crazy how life goes so fast, huh?!!

And roughly in 15 minutes our counter tops are supposed to be delivered today! Very excited for that!!! That means SOON I'll have a sink back and we can put the stove and dishwasher back and get my kitchen back to normal... new normal, hee hee.

Yesterday we did hardware in the kithen & I was loading the upper cabinets with stuff. Now with the island, I have more storage space, so it's seeming like I have more room/space that I don't have anything to put there, hee hee. I'm sure when I can unpack it all, I'll have more, but it'll be nicely put and not stacked on top of things, like some was. It'll be nice!!! I'm excited!!

So getting closer! emoticon

On that note I should let you go. They should be here VERY soon!
Susi... praying today is a going home day for your Daddy! Hoping all goes well!
Auntie... have a wonderful day... say HI to Jimmy!
Hugs to you both!

Susi, thanks for the Nascar News! With all that you've been through, I'm impressed that you were able to whip up snacks for Greg!

I'm happy to hear that your dad is stable, and should be back home tomorrow!

As for me, I did laundry today. After that, it was time to relax with the Sunday paper.

Wishing you a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie, the race was on last night at Bristol. Truex came in 13. :( Only because he had some car trouble though, he was running 2nd and 3rd through a lot of it. Nothing special for the race because it was on late. Greg just snacked.

I was so tired and it finally caught up with me. I fell asleep in the chair about 7:30 last night, Greg woke me at 11 to go to bed and I didn't wake up till 4 this morning. It's been a while since I've slept that long. It was nice. :)

We'll wait again today to go for the valet parking. Greg hates the garages. I'm not fond of them but they will do in a pinch. They are monitored and they have a unit sitting at the entrance of each one all the time for emergencies. That helps a little. :)

I would love it if they would say he was coming home tomorrow. I won't hold my breath though. The doc said he "can';t release him till he is stabilized". I understand that because he has to cover himself too. I won't force it and sign him out though without the doc's authorization.

HUGS!

Susi, I could never get tired of stories about your dad! Especially not when they're that funny! I don't blame you for waiting until you can get valet parking. I think parking garages are creepy!
And your Subway meatball sandwich sounds good to me!

When I was on here yesterday, I forgot to mention that I agree with you, I want our soaps brought back, but I want them on regular TV, since I don't pay for streaming. As we were saying, soaps are one of my escapes!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Go, Truex!

Hugs

Cyndie

TJ got there before 9 this morning. She's staying all day. :( One of her boys is at so kind of thing up there and it doesn't close till 10 tonight. He got tickets for him and his sister to go and wanted to make the whole day of it. Dad said HI SUSI when I went in. :) He was kind of back sliding today though. *sigh* They are going to keep him a little longer. They are trying to get his O2 stable enough to ambo him here. He's on some kind of heavier oxygen right now that is a warm one and I know that MST doesn't have that. So they are working to get him off it, and back on normal. When they do send him down he will come with a BiPab just to get him here comfortably. Up one day and down the next, I know this is how things work though.

HUGS!

If you all get sick of me telling dad stories, tell me. I won't be offended. :) This is a really funny one! TJ texted last night. She was there with the speech therapist came in. He was frustrating both her and dad. He wanted him to say "Hamburger in a big red ball" Dad couldn't say it. The ST looked dad right in the eyes and said "You're a pain in the ass" Dad looked right back at him and said "You're a pain in the ass" LOL! The ST said "thank you! That's the best compliment I've had all day" LOL! I do believe this cause I know dad and how much he hates being pushed by them. LOL! The ST was trying to find a way to get dad to form his words and it worked. :) I laughed so hard it made me cough. LOL!

Cyndie, I'm proud of you too for your lunch choices! Great job! I only wish I could be as good. Yesterday when we went to Subway for lunch I had to choose the Meatball sub, which I love and haven't had for a long time. I guess at least I chose baked Lay's potato chips instead of regular ones to go with it. LOL!

We're going to visit a little later today for selfish reasons. The valet on weekends isn't there till 11. Greg hates the garages because he's claustrophobic so the valet is a good choice and we don't have to worry about finding the car. We just decided to make it easy as possible on us.

Depending on how I feel when we get there, I may try to not use the wheel chair. Greg may think I should anyway though just in case.

HUGS!

Susi, I am so excited to hear the good news about your dad! So he's at his best in the mornings. I think that's true of lots of folks! And more good news that you didn't need the Inogen!

Missy, I'm sorry to hear about you needing to get your mammo redone, but happy that it all turned out well in the end. Thanks for sharing the news of your doctor's appointment.

We have our little group here, and I worry about my Pine Valley Gal Pals! Jimmy and I went out to lunch today. I had a salad with grilled chicken on top, and fresh fruit for dessert, so I was proud!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Wishing

Missy, I love the nook and the new trim and around the door! Everything is looking so beautiful! Whoever it was that told you that you shouldn't change things and make rooms bigger, well, not to offend, but they were soooo wrong. LOL! It looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I so love the colors! :)

Okay, ready for some good news? :) When Greg and I got there this morning they had dad up and sitting in his chair. :) It was so good to see him out of that bed. He could hold small conversations for just a while, then it was ....manymanymanymany...and a lot more manys. But he was trying so hard. He didn't eat a lot yesterday but ate some and he had a few bites of a kind of purred waffle and almost an entire creamy type fruit drink for breakfast. :)

The docs were in. Social Service is getting ready to work with MST about him possibly going back there. If he stays stable they think he will be up to the ambo ride back, if not they don't think it's a good idea. They kind of left us with the impression it won't be much longer, but they can't tell people that. I'm okay with it though. That doesn't mean I won't cry when it does happen but I will accept it better. I hope the impression they gave us was a mistake on our part, at least for a while.

PT came in and worked with him to stand just to get some weight put on his legs. He had to hold on to this machine's handlebars. it's a lifting machine, and work on pulling himself up as the machine did. It was sure something. :) He was shaky and it was really hard on him but he did it and did it twice. :)

So I was very happy today, but it does seem like he does the best in the mornings, at least right now, I'll take it. :)

The prednisone is working. I still let Greg push me on the longer walks but I took the shorter ones without help. He even pushed me a block away to a Subway for lunch. :) I don't think I could have walked that in the heat. But not once did I have to use the Inogen while we were there. :)

You sure are not offending me about reality shows especially the Kardasian's! I can't stand their attitudes. The only reality shows I watch are shows on the ID channel, things that really bad things happened to really good people, you know like serial killers and such, that are true stories. We are addicted to those. LOL! *side note* If Greg would have said stuff like that when I was watching soaps I would have told him he had bad acting sometimes too! ROFL!!!

I sure hope you don't have to have a hysterectomy, but since your mom did and your sister had to early you may have a good 60% chance of having one too, but I still hope not. I'm the only one of us 3 girls and my mom, 2 of my aunts and one cousin that hasn't had to. Lucky? I hope so! But I'm the one that got the acne so bad it left pock marks on my cheeks. :(

HUGS!

Morning ladies. Boob squish is done! She was very apologetic about missing the blurry. She showed me where it was in the corner, and I could not see it. VERY small blurry spot. I had to take it twice because it kept happening. I must breathe or something when I'm not supposed to. Crazy me. She had the doctor look before I left... all was good.

Susi... hope your Prednisone worked?!! I can see how some people think you might be leaving/going home. The were just trying to be nice, just to bad it wasn't true... you heading home because your Dad was too. Praying that's soon!

I can understand the get-a-way from life. Reason why I watch my soaps/stories. My neighbor and I always talk about it. Our families give us *rap for watching them, but it's better than what they watch these days. All that reality shows like the Kardasians, etc. I don't mean to offend anyone, just not my thing. I don't pick on them, so leave me watching my soaps... doesn't bother anyone!

Last night I had to finish GH and Papabear was in the room. He kept making fun of the show and asking what was that about, or saying such bad acting. Again, this from a guy who enjoys You Tube and watching stupid stuff on his phone. okay?!!! Anywho I just tell him to be quiet or leave.So you do what you have to Susi to help you!!!
emoticon

My Mom had a hysterectomy... back in the 80's, 90's... she was laid up for a while! I remember her sleeping on the pull out couch and my Grandmother taking care of her. My sister had her's... in her late 30's?!? She was quicker than my Mom with recovery. I'm trying NOT to have one, but if this lower back pain continues... and it could stop it... I might consider it. But I'll do what I can not to.

Here's the start of the nook. We put the dresser in there, PB's coffee maker. And those are flowers from one of my BFF's because she loves me... hee hee. We are going to have shelves above this all.


This is the trim around the door and you can see the baseboards some. We had the older style before and now going with this look. The dood has to be painted still too.


Coming along slowly. Papabear is hoping to have all base boards and trim done this weekend a long with the hallway, and pendant lights up. One more week and I'm back to work. (sad face). And I have to start moving everything back in it's place!!! Gonna be a busy week!!!

Hoping your Dad is better today Susi.
Hoping you have a good Day Auntie Cyndie.
Hugs to you both!!!

Cyndie, you said it was a temporary "filling" that was why I wondered why a temp one. :) I do understand the temporary crown. :) I've had those too, they always feel to me like a porous block of wood. LOL!

I had some Prednisone left so I started taking those, maybe that will help with my breathing some. It's so dang frustrating! :( The staff is use to me in the chair now, but when just regular folk see me, they say, oh, you get to go home today, good for you! *sigh*

Missy, it is my fault. :( We all know I get up in the night and I could quietly do my exercises then. But no. I go on facebook and Pogo and play games. I do that to focus on something besides what's going on at the time. It gives me an escape from reality even if it's just for a little while.

I hate you have to get squishy again today. :( Usually the one doing the x-rays can tell if they are blurry or not as they are looking at them. The one thing I really don't like about doctors is when they constantly say...you're getting older. GRRRR! I've heard that a few times. I know it's true, just don't need them telling me that.

I hope you don't have to have the hysterectomy. My one aunt did because of the excessive bleeding. It was a good thing but the surgery is rough in aftercare. At least it was for her. It throws you past menopause almost right away, you get all the emotions and everything. :( But I know you can handle it if you have to. :)

I know crazy when someone big is around. Last month the VP was here in town something about attending the ground breaking for a new factory that is going to be built. It was invitation only so no "normal" person was allowed to attend. It was nuts!

I can't wait to see more pictures! :) Oh, no, I didn't get a good nights sleep again. Hopefully soon. I think I will do some better when we have dad back in town.

HUGS!

Hello everyone.

Susi, I'm so happy you have Greg!!! Thank-you Greg, and thank-you for not fighting him!!! I'm glad he is pushing you in a wheelchair!!! PLEASE let him take care of you, since you are doing so much to take care of your Dad right now!

Like Cyndie said, it's not really your fault about the not exercising and all. Just do what you can... like letting Greg help you... and you'll be back to it all when you can!

Hoping tomorrow is better for your dad. Glad to read SOME good news for today! Praying hard! When I was in mass tonight I said some special prayers for him, and my Mom.

I hope my Mom reads what you said below Susi! And if you are reading it Mom, do it!!! Please! Thanks Susi.

Auntie Cyndie... glad your dentist has a plan. Now just need the insurance to get on board!! Praying they do! Good luck and keep us posted!

Grrr... and hour after I got home, they said they need me to come back tomorrow because one of my "pictures" from my mammogram was blurry! aaaaggghhhh. Just how I wanted to start tomorrow too!

As for the cyst, it hasn't grow, or gotten smaller. So still keeping an eye on it. She took some blood work to rule out stuff like cancer, etc. As for my constant lower back pain, she said it could be my periods, so we'll see what the blood work says. She suggested I talk to my primary doctor... which I did my past time and she said do core exercises. This doctor said it could be a little of both... getting older & being a woman. So core exercises I'll do. Oh, they also mentioned hysterectomy, but that meant making a new appointment with the other doctor and see. I said lets wait for results and go from there. If I was to even do that, I would have to wait till next Summer, because of the Day Care.

Anywho... Thanks for asking, but I'll be fine. I always am.

The president is here in the city near me. Driving anywheres is crazy today. Police everywhere!!!

Papabear has started the trim around the doors and baseboards. Looking good! I'll have to take pics.

Okay, hope you are able to sleep some more tonight Susi! Prayers for your Dad, YOU, and Greg!!!

Auntie Cyndie... hoping you had a good night. Happy Friday's eve, as you always said. Have a good day tomorrow!

HUGS to you both!!!

Missy, I don't blame you for being worried about your mom. And we know you'll keep us posted! As for you, when will you get the results of your mammogram? Also, What did they say about your cyst?

Susi, I am sorry to hear that the progress you made with you with your at-home rehab has been lost, but these are definitely extenuating circumstances! When it comes to your dad, I'm happy to hear that he had some good moments!

The dentist is saying he only wanted to put in the temporary crown because he still wants to do that extensive cleaning. If my insurance pays for that, the next step is to put a crown on it.

Keeping everyone in prayer!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, we are here for each other. Please don't withhold things that worry you for any reason especially when it comes to your parents. That goes for you too Cyndie. I love you both and want to share your worries and troubles with you when you have them, just like I know you do with me. :)

I would hope that they would have told her if it was congestive heart failure or not. She should weigh every morning and if there is a 5 lb or more gain or loss in a couple of days she needs to see a doctor. I'm just saying that because those were our instructions for dad at one time. I know they really wanted to move but I wish they would have stayed there with you. And it may be something as simple as all the traveling they have done late has caught up? I hope that's all it is. Hugs!

Dad was good this morning when Greg and I FIRST got there. He even talked but just a little. He smiled and even tried to laugh. Later on those it was different. He was kind of out of it like he was yesterday.

This afternoon they gave him another swallow test. He can't use a straw at all, but he was able to swallow a thicker food spoon fed to him. That's a good thing. :)

In the meeting we talked about getting him back here. So that is a goal. :) Not sure when though and they have to contact Main Street to make sure they will be equipped to handle his needs. I'm pretty sure they will be. :) So for now I guess we are playing it by ear.

Me? Oh well, yell at me now! All the good I did in rehab is just about gone again. I haven't done many exercises for this last few days because of worry and going up there. In and out, in and out of the ac to the heat and humidity. :( That makes it worse. We did pick up the Inogen and I'm using that when I need it.

And of all the humiliation, Greg insists on pushing me at Grant in a wheel chair because there is so much walking to do when we are there, it is a big place. :( *sigh*

HUGS!

Hello ladies...
I had doctors appointments all morning. Mammo and another ultrasound to keep an eye on my cyst.

Susi... I hope you were able to get some info/answers today at that meeting. I'm so sorry about your Daddy! Praying...

Auntie Cyndie... Glad you are fixed, with your tooth. I wonder also why the temporary one, but I guess they know what they are doing. Hoping the recall/summit to the insurance helps!! Good luck!!

I didn't want to get going about my Mom yesterday with all Susi is dealing with, with her Dad. But I'm worried about my Mom. She's having fluids in her legs, troubles breathing?!!? My sister mentioned Congestive Heart Failure... scares me. A lot of praying going on in the Valley...

Hoping to hear some positive news from you Susi. Hang in there!!! Don't forget to take care of yourself! Greg, and YOU, don't need anything to help or a bed right near your Daddy. HUGS Praying...

Thank you both for the prayers. The only update I have now is he failed his motor skills test too, so he will be bed ridden. :( Today at 11 we'll have a meeting with one of the doctors to plan a course of action.

My thoughts are there is nothing more they can do for him. I want him back down here as soon as they can. But hopefully we'll find out more today.

I'm so mentally and physically exhausted. I didn't get much sleep last night even though I was so sleepy. I slept for maybe 3 hours then woke up thinking about him. They'll call between 9 and 6 this morning to let me know if anything changed in the night.

Cyndie, I'm glad they put a temporary filling in for you. Makes me wonder why they just didn't go ahead and do the real one, but there must have been a good reason. I do hope they hear from your insurance soon. The waiting on things like that is maddening. :(

HUGS!

Susi, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. First the flu, now the stroke. I am praying for all of you! As you said, him not knowing any of you has to be stressful!

Missy, I do agree with you. I think moderation is the best most of us can do! Another thing the book talked about is working out before breakfast. I MIGHT try it.

I did get to the dentist today. They put a temporary filling in for me. They said that they hadn't heard from our insurance company on the proposed work, so they'll resubmit.

Having a Pine Valley Prayer Wednesday!

Hugs!

Greg and I are home for the night. Kelly and is on the way back up there and TJ will leave to come home. Greg and I will go back in the morning. It doesn't look good at all but we're still praying and hoping.

He didn't pass his swallow test and the doc ordered a tube put in for his meds. It can be used for nutrition only if need be at a later time. He does have a living will. This is so stressful for all of us. :( He didn't know any of us today. :(

I did call Uncle Terry and he and Aunt Marcie went to visit him. He didn't know them either but I'm glad they went. Thank you for the prayers. We all could use them especially dad.

I will keep you update as soon as I know more.

HUGS!


God Bless and Hugs!
Ohio, the Buckeye State

Hang in there!
