Happy New Year All

Sue you look lovely and I am sure by Easter you will notice a difference.

I am not pleased with my self for the past year, but like I said PAST so onward with the present and I will PRESENT my self on the scale next year with totally different numbers. I have reset my present weight and I am not making excuses, but I know where the gain of the last year came from.....my knee!!!

Cheri if you send me those pictures again of the ones we took at Thanksgiving, we will both have new pictures on our profiles lol I am still going to go through all my emails and see if I can find them

Tracy glad to hear you had a good time last night. We had a quiet one at home...Stephen watching TV, Tedd chatting with his friends 2 on the PC, 1 one speaker phone of his cell phone and my watching TV with Stephen and talking to Brittney on the phone. The whole family together plus some!! Possibly next year I will suggest to Tedd that he have a New Year's party instead of a Christmas Party. He and his friends where sure cheering in the new year it was nice to sit and listen to them. At midnight we toasted the year in with pop and I had a glass of wine (Blame it on Cheri...she is the one that got me started on the wine...BTW we found the wine we had at your house..BOONES) and it is very delicious. Tedd wanted some last night, but Steve drew the line at Christmas!!

Now for what to have for Brunch seeing as it is almost noon!! hugs n tugs love n prayers

Sue ,I'd love a Foyle's after the war .I invent scenarios for what they do after the war in my head LOL!
Lizzie I have another problem who will take my photo? The dogs don't have opposable thumbs!LOL!
I have spoken to Kayleigh and Ryan they are on the HMS Belfast touring as I write but no word from Al which worries me as they lock down communications when there is a death and the Taliban seems to like to spoil our holidays by killing soldiers on them.
Sue I have really got Narnia for you here ,it was so snowy and cold I didn't venture out last night .Perhaps if I had had Aslan to guide me LOL!
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you all

Lizzie, I posted a pic of myself that was taken on Boxing Day, so I could compare at Easter, hoping to notice a difference!!

Midsomer Murders and Foyles War both good, just make specials now. Foyles has supposedly finished as the war is over..lol, but say they may make new series with same characters after the war. Not sure that will work as they will all go off and do different stuff if it was real.

It is such a heavy frost today, the trees on the hillside opposite look like something out of Narnia

I wish you all a healthy and happy New Year
hugs

Maggie if you like Midsomer Murders perhaps you should try Foyle's War ,they are mysteries set in hastings during World War 2 and they are cleverly done also,I think they would appeal to you,I get those from the library also.
Packrat is my middle name !It is funny how much we have in common here ,here we are scattered all over and we all seem to share something !
Susan I will look for you tomorrow.I like playing Wordtwist too.I keep getting interrupted when I play soon I will build up some speed LOL!

Happy New Year to everyone!

We had another bout of bad weather last night and Neil had to shovel himself into the driveway after his night shift. We were in the clear for a couple of days, but we have been hit again. There are still thousands of people without power. We had one two-hour outage.

I babysat Ariel and Zander on Monday night. My son put Zander to sleep with a story before they went to the show so I just had Ariel to care for. What a little doll, she is. My, I am so smitten. She is a red-head, too!

I was cleaning my office and unearthing treasures. I am such a pack rat! I did get rid of a lot.

Our wedding anniversary is Jan. 9--no it was not hot that year, but I would not recommend since it was so cold that my roses fizzled when I moved them from the hall to the car. It is our 10th anniversary so I made reservations at The Grand Hotel in Toronto--check is out online, if you like. Friends stayed there and really loved it. It is the Jarvis/Dundas location.

Thanks for all the word games. I play several: lexulous, wordtwist, pathwords and scramble so just add me anytime.

We are staying in and watching Midsummer Murders; I rented a DVD from the library. Susie, I have not heard of the movie rental machines that you mentioned. My son has a two-year online rental--for $30.00 he can download as many movies as he likes. He mentioned that the other day--that was news to me, too.

Susan, you will have fun planning that wedding. Sounds like a lot of fun. We had fun planning ours. I made my dress: long winter white with matching jacket.

My life will be easier this coming semester. I am taking just one half-credit course and no college teaching on the horizon. I will be working on my weight and checking into Sparks far more.

Thanks for starting up another thread, Mary. We are very fortunate to have you administering our needs:)

When we went out at 1030am today it was 41f out.. by 130pm it was 29 and snowing! It is still snowing out which makes it scary to drive in for tonight--I am a little worried to say the least. Driving will be treacherous...I am a good driver it is the others out there that are intoxicated I worry about. Of course the salt trucks are out sanding and salting the roads! I am gonna put my feet up for a bit now.. I am tired- I got up at 6am and cold not fall asleep so I started to go through boxes and threw out 2 boxes worth of stuff!

If I dont get back before I leave tonight- Happpy Safe New years to all!

Hi Everyone! I'm back already. I got my suv inspected. I picked up my movies and found some steak on sale for later this week. I got new windshield wipers installed. I bought my mom and dad lunch today with my wendys card. We bought some buns for tonight to go with the pork & sauerkraut (hot dogs for me). we also found a new years pretzel for tonight. I did some cleaning and my mom helped while my dad was still at the garage talking. My dads friend owns the garage where we get our vehicles inspected and today is his last day to work. Hes retiring and his helper is taking over the business so my dad was there talking so we switched vehicles and went shopping while mine was on the rack. I had my oil changed also.

My next project today is to take the tree down and put away the christmas decorations.

I think its time for me to do a new picture so I might post one tomorrow. I'll have my mom take one tonight.

Be back later.

Hi Everyone! I just rented 3 movies for tonight online and I'm going to pick them up this morning. I got mamma mia, hancock and house bunny. I rent them from redbox and its only $1.00 a movie for one day. I have to return them by 9 pm tomorrow night. Our grocery stores have the redbox machines in them.

Teresa- I read where your doctor said to make your goals high well. I'm going to make a new goal for 2009. I want to see the 199 or less by dec 2009. I would really like to see my goal of 150.

I had to change my doctors appointments so now I see them both on Jan 16 and I hope to have atleast a total of 100 pounds or more off by then.

Well I better get some work done today.

I will be back later.

*Guess I was tired when I posted** Many have lost 100 pounds in a year and I am sure if I buckle down I can do it-- that is 2 pounds a week!

Last night I went to sit on the sofa to wait for my lexulous games to come up and I fell asleep so I retired since it was 230 when I woke up and I was exhausted.. Of course I woke at 6am and could not fall back asleep! SO I went through 4 boxes and threw away 2 boxes of "stuff" put away laundry and organized some papers.

Now at 9am I neeed a nap, lol! But I can not-- I need to go shopping!

I will be back later but for those I miss later

"Happy New year"

Much love to you all!

Ladies, sorry I haven't been around. Not had any notifications from spark for this team and suddenly thought, what is happening and here you all are!..lol

mum still in rehab hospital but is starting to walk more. they had to sort out her meds which were giving her a bad tummy and making her sleepy.she will be in for another few weeks but at least now we think we may get her home. At one point dad and I thought we were losing her.

I maintained over Christmas, don't ask how. Only thing I think is I had the bad stuff as a meal, instead of after a meal...lol. Last of it will be gone tonight after New Year party, well dh me and kids( grown up they may be but come here for New Year. What is left will either go home with them or dh will take it to work tomorrow night

see you later, btw, am having trouble with some lexulous games saying letters aren't in place so if I am late, am trying to get it to work and screaming at the computer

Hey Ladies,

Happy New Years Day is coming really fast. I myself will be sitting home and watching Don sleep. He works through new years. As a matter of fact I'm not for sure when his next day off will be.

I'm Done being the fat girl myself. Starting January 1st I'm tightning down on what I eat and I'm going to start moving some of this weight off. I'd like to lose at least 100 lbs by my birthday in July. Tracy we can all do this. My doctor told me to set high goals whether I reach it monthly or not. He said I would be more likely to stay faithful. I agree. There is no slacking this time around.

Cheri You can do anything you set your mind too. I think we all can. At least you will not be havingto cook for others. When Al & Kayleigh see you again they will have to look twice to see who you are.

Tomorrow Mary and I will be seeing each other and she has plans for us to do alot of walking. That's one thing I will have to start doing is exercising.

Susan congrats on you wedding. I want to see the ring and hear all your plans. I Love hearing you are so happy.

I'm ready for more Lexulous games. Maggie is kicking my butt really bad right now,,LOL! The next game she will not be so lucky.

Tracy you need to play your turn on the game with Cheri and I. We need to start some more between us. I'll play with whom ever wants to play.

Well I guess I need to get some sleep. I have to meet Mary at 10 am in the morning. I've got to read the posts. Hugs! Teresa

I am sure we willl accomplish our goals.. I am not asking for much and I am willing to work hard at it! I want to see 399 this year! SO many have lost 1000 pounds in a year-- I want to try too!

Much love

OH I am sure I will be popping in here when I get home! I am surely not planning on taknig anyone to bed that night, lol! As a matter of fact-- not any night in 2009.. I really don't feel "it" I only want to worry about getting me healthy this next year.

I am so jealous that Mary gets to see another SParkie-- maybe one day Jo will join them! One day when I am healthier I will travel.

Tonight Mufasa was hilarious-- a commercial came on for a tape- Beethovens 3rd or something like that- it is about St BErnards-- he saw the dogs and dashed for the TV-- got there and was talking to them and he was also touching the TV screen he cracks me up!

MUch love

Tracy, Everything that The Done Being Fat Girl Team said is true. Thanks,

We went to the Y today. Unfortunately I are some cookies. Alan just does not understand that I have NO willpower when it comes to cookies and ice cream. I have asked him nit to bring them in the house, he ignores my request.

Tomorrow, Teresa and I meet. I told her that I will be home before dark, which is around 5pm here. I don't want to see any drunks. I will either be watching tv, sleeping on the sofa, or sleeping in my bed. How exciting.

Mary

Hi Everyone! I have been lazy today. I slept in and then slept on the couch this afternoon. I haven't done much today. I did pay some bills. I have alot of organizing to do yet. Tomorrow I'm taking my suv to get inspected and the oil changed. Also a little shopping while its getting done. We are going to watch movies at my house tomorrow night. Thats the plan so far. I go a bunch of snacks and I'm going to make a pizza. I still have my tree up and decorations outside which I was supposed to do today.

Tracy- Wow thats great.

I have been trying to think of my new years resolutions for this coming year. I definitely want to lose more weight and exercise more. I need to be more organized at home and get rid of the clutter.

Well I want to watch some tv and maybe get something done yet.

Good Night Everyone!

Tracy, I have played Sudoku for years. Started with the newspaper ones. I now play at pogo and also buy the books. I also play alot of Mahjong and alot of games where you find objects in pictures.

Lizzie, I have Club Pogo. I played bingo just long enough to get the badge. I have a free pass that I can give someone if they want it.

Lizzie, you have to stop this fallings or put pillows beside your chairs.

Teresa and I meet tomorrow. I told her that we have to walk at least 10,000 steps. I have a pedometer and will be measuring.

Susan the wedding plans sound gorgeous.I am with Mary on heat.As much as I love it .I got married on July 14th and it was hot and humid.I made my wedding cake and if you can imagine it we made the fondant roses with our heads in the freezer!!!!This friend of mine got the most gorgeous wedding dress on Ebay it was amazing and she paid 200 hundred dollars for something that would have cost two thousand or more in a store here !Susan if I was feeling better I 'd join you thrift store hunting tomorrow!!!
I am still feeling beastly and I think my New Year's may be spent playing Lexulous.I did feel bright enough to come for my favourite pick me up a visit with you ladies !
There are so many ideas for invitations Susan ,my mind is in overdrive .I have some amazing medieval fonts and you can find tons online ....oh the artistic fun available in wedding planning .Doe Edwin have any preferences?Or is he in charge of music ?Will Mikayla be a bridesmaid? Oh such fun!
Tracy how are you feeling today?Together we are a regular petrie dish of germs LOL!
Teresa we need to hear from you or Mary and I will have to put on our thinking caps .
Mary so glad to hear the scooter isn't the worse for wear.
Lizzie how is the bruised one today?I hope you are getting some rest.

Good day to all the beautiful Spark women!
I am sooooooooooo happy to have the holidays almost over! I am going to go bargain shopping and thrift store hunting tomorrow. I think....@least as of this sec(but give me a min. and I will change,lol) that I am going w/burgundy and pink for my wedding-w/metallic accents in gold, silver and copper. Edwins fave color is a deep burgundy,mine is pink & we have tended to buy each other jewelry that was mixed metals. My ring set is gold and silver, my bracelet I got for my birthday is gold, brushed steel and brushed copper, the bracelet I bought him is a masculaine version of mine. I am fixin to hit the after Xmas sales and find scads of Xmas closeout ribbons in the colors I might use(the other possible combos are crimson and cream or purple and silver) I figure what I dont use for wedding, I can use next Christmas! I also saw a gorgeous "chandelier" light covering on one of the diy shows made from various colors of matte, shiny and clear ornaments I would like to replicate for my dining room. Looks a lot like the bubble lights so popular nowdays but WAY less $$$!
Tracy,if you will start some lexxulous games, I promise to stay onboard and take my turns regularly!
Cheri, sorry you are feeling so lonesome-perhaps a jaunt to Okla. is just what the dr. ordered! You can help me decide on the font for my invitations, play in fondant for the cake-making, and we will look for bargains of all kinds. It is 65 degrees here today! And if we head south and visit all the Texans, we should stay pretty warm,too!
Mary, I agree that August wouldnt be too good for me-I would melt! But Edwin loves the heat, so I need to hit a semi-warm date w/out landing where it is too hot!
I am going to finish my lists so I will not get out tomorrow and go all ADHD and fuzzy-headed trying to recall what all I plan to look at!
Everyone have a great day!
Well wishes to all the sicklies and love to all
Susan

Yes Lizzie, I can imagine you do need a rest and a soak after your tumble.. NO more faling off chairs for you, I am surprised I dont fall out of mine more often... do you have arms on it? Mine does but I slide out a bit which is why I need to readjust myself..

My friend ALan came over and brought coffee which was nice, then he played the sport game with Tanya...She went to bed and I am stilll doing laundry.. I figure I wil be done by 2am, lol!


Hope to see some of you here tonight .. I am watching ELF..

Much love

Lizzie, there was no damage to the scooter. We drove it around some today to make sure it was alright and I couldn't even find a scratch on it.
I don't play word games. I play number games, one person games on pogo.

Susan, I have one bit of advise on your day of bliss. Don't do it in August. My wedding was in August and I think it was 101 degrees. And the wedding was at 7pm.

I went back to the Y today. I can't even remember the last time we went. I started my New Years Resolution early. Why wait. I have gained 5 pounds. My weight is 342.

Have a good evening,
Mary

I have been playing lots of lexulous! Thank you Lizzie, Jo and Kathy! I needed some fun today!
I babysat and I need to be there at 1130 tomorrow again..I really need the $$ so it is coming in handy!

Tanya is thoroughly enjoying herself with her "fake Wii" I got her it is all sports and she is getting a good workout with it.

I am getting a good workout with laundry, lol!

CHeri-- I am waiting for you honey! Hope you are not too lonely in the calmer days ahead!

Hope you all are having a great day!

Good afternoon ladies!
I did read posts over the weekend, just was in a lazy kinda mood. Other than going to get my rings sized& hitting the library, we did not venture out over the weekend or far from the couch! Mikayla is @ her sisters, babysitting her nephew while he is out for Winter break, so Edwin and I just totally relaxed! It was his first w/e w/out overtime since b4 Thanksgiving!
So sorry everyone is feeling under the weather!(which I blame on a lot of the maladies around here!! Who can maintain any kind of health when it is 30 degrees for a high one day and then the next day the high is 78!!)
We had some heavy storms but thank God, no tornadoes!
Hope everyone else escaped the weather woes s well!
Everyone who feels bad, prayers for you to feel better!
Thanks for the games,ladies.
I am going to go toil over the calendar some more to see if it will give up a proper date for me. I cant really do much wedding planning until we have a date. I'm thinking "whenever" or "sometime" are not appropriate times to schedule,LOL-but I find myself being all superstitious- no thirteenths of the month, no dates that have numbers associated w/ bad memories.........maybe a dart and a b;indfold will help!
Love to all!
Susan

Hey Ladies,

I have not read all the posts but decided to respond when my eyes caught Lizzies post. Yes sweetie we do shoot old horses behind the barn in the olden days. This is the 21st century and we Love our old horses and we take care of them and get them well. My prayers are with you. Hope you get to feeling better. I guess I'll have to send you a couple of Lexulous games. Did we finish the last ones? I'll have to go look. hugs! Teresa

Hello my sparkies.. I am feeling a little better even though all I wanted was comfort foods today... soup and pasta seemed to be the only stuff that I wanted.

For New Years we are having a party at a friends house--doing the appetizer, dessert, drink thing again. Quido will not be joining us as he has to take his mom to the airport-- she does this every year!

Tanya cut her finger today right at the knuckle so she is in misery as it hurts her and each time she bends it it hurts more. Also her finger is swollen.

I am babysitting tomorrow so I am headed to bed now-- need to take a big water pill too as my legs are so swollen.. I will need to wake at 730 so I can shower and get to my "job" on time.

Hope you all have a good night and to my little sickies-- feeel better!

Much love

I love playing Lexulous and you Ladies will be doing a public service keeping me from worrying about what is going on in Afghanistan.I was choked today the phone kept rining for Kayleigh while I was playing wordtwist and screwing me up! I am not all that good at it since I am feeling so poorly to start with so an interruption was really bad news!
Lizzie I am sorry you fell ill ,I know they say misery loves company but Tracy and I were planning on being the only sickly ones we were praying for good health for everyone else(we would have prayed for good health for each other but the dreadful lurgy felled us both when we least expected it LOL!)
Jo do we have to start creating a whole parallell universe for you ....Mary and I have Susan to help us with our creative efforts now ,last time Teresa went AWOL she had to come back to dispell the twin story ,just think what we might come up with with another co-conspirator!
Kathy I enjoy playing Lexulous with you too.In fact today my games have been my saving grace ,I can't feel too badly when I have a good word to play even if I am stuffed up!
love and hugs,Cheri

Evening All

Tracy and Cheri I hope you two are feeling better. I don't have much of an appetite either and on top of the sore throat, my head is pounding and of course my back has to start aching more that ever!!! They shoot old horses out behind the barn don' they??? Where's the barn?

Maggie I could not believe the winds you had in Ontario!! My word you folks had it bad down there. Do Monica and Ash live very far from you or if it gets bad can you spend the night there?

Susie have fun at the party.

Sue and Susan have not seen you ladies for a few days. Hope all is well with you both.

Where Oh where is our lovely Jo? Miss you chickie..come out and visit with us.

Mary do you play word games? Would you like to join our Lexulous games?

Kathy you sure are giving me a run for my money..you are a very strong player. I love playing lexulous, and I play for the fun of it and am not much into challenging people if they put down a word that may not be a word...the way I look at it is if Lexulous accepted it, then it is okay with me too!!!!

Better go finish playing my games as it may be a long night tonight, I fell asleep watching a movie with Tedd this afternoon hugs n tugs, love n prayers emoticon

Mary, I think we had tornado-like winds up here--a lot of tree branches down, signs ruined and debris blowing about. We had thunder and lightening with the bits of snow left since the thaw--the weather is very strange.

We have had an incredibly windy day here. It is now below freezing again, most of the snow has melted which results in flood advisories.

A old friend called me today, we worked together as teenagers and have connected a few times over the years. Hearing from her was great. Both her parents are in a nursing home, so I am very lucky that mine are still at home.

Cheri and Tracy, I hope that you soon get over your respective malaises. I have a cough when I lie down and a scratchy throat. Can't get worse because I am going to babysit my grandchildren tomorrow so that Monica and Ash can have a movie date. They have had free passes for over a year.

Neil and I went out for a few groceries. I sure did not want to look at food. Anyone doing anything for New Year's?

Tracy I hope you feel better.I am not eating though I am trying to drink some lemonade right now.I am congested too .I may try soaking ina tub with eucalyptus oil see if that will help my breathing.
Susie I don't think vitamins would have helped me I just overdid it and didn't get near enough rest !Enjoy your party! I hope the wind doesn't cause any damage.
love and hugs,Cheri

Good afternoon Sparkies!

Cheri I am so sorry you are feeling so poorly! I can eat I am just feeling miserably. PLease rest and feel better... WHat a way to end your visit with your lovely daughter.

Susie-it is quite windy here too.. it woke me up actually. Enjoy your party!

I got into bed at 5am after waking up on the sofa.. I have a hard time lying down when I am congested as I can not breathe.. I am sure I will feel better soon though.. I guess breathing treatments are in order.
I am going to go put my feet up so I will BBL

MUch love

I hope everyone feels better sounds like a lot of you are getting a cold. I'm back taking my vitamins again so I don't get sick.

Have a great day!

All I have to say is I better lose some weight with this running to the bathroom a million times an hour.Was just reading an email from a friend it seems Wollworths has gone under in Egland businesses are closing every week there.The economy is certainly in the toilet.I am trying to keep hydrated but it isn't easy especially since I can't even keep water down! Lizzie I certainly hope you have not acquired this ailment I would not wish it on my worst enemy let alone you!Have a pleasant Sunday.love and hugs,Cheri

I am just having a hard time -- I need to keep coughing-- last night I did not sleep in bed-- I laid down and could not breathe all I did was cough! SO I slept in the recliner.. I hope to lie down tonight.

Cheri- sorry you are feeling poorly! I will share my tea with honey and lemon with you!

Much love

Good evening sparkies!

We had a quiet dinner and I am sipping tea now..tomorrow we will go buy groceries as there si nto much to choose from to eat here. Shop rite is our local supermarket where I will get my $4.99 a pound lobsters-- we love lobster and at that price it must be done!you can take them home and cook them or have them steam them for you-- we make thm ourselves.

Tanya went out with friends- another one turned 21 today. I hope she uses her head and comes home early as she works tomorrow.

Mary- stay safe!

Susie- sounds like you got some bargains!

Maggie- the cold season is upon us of course! I hope to feel a lot better tomorrow!


I am going to retire to the sofa again and out the feet up!


Much love

Hello everyone, yes we weren't snowed in today, but the fog was thick. We had another day of socializing. tomorrow should be quiet.

Congratulations Susan!! Hearing about your plans will be fun!

Cheri, I was thinking about Al when I heard the latest tragedy. What a worry!!

Tracy, Mary, Susie, Sue, Kathy, Lizzie, Jo, Teresa, and anyone I have inadvertantly missed I wish you a good night. I am sorry to hear of so many sore throats and illness. My throat was getting scratchy today--ugh.

When I woke up at 7am it was 70 degrees, I opened the back door and knew it was tornado weather. When it is so hot and a cool front comes in, we have bad weather. I turned on the tv and sure enough a tornado watch until 2pm. It started to rain and that made it cooler. The thunderstorms started and the wind was high for a little while. The wind knocked over the scooter. No tornado, thank goodness.

Everyone take care of yourselves. Don't want everyone sick for New Years Eve.

On second thought a little liquer might do you some good.

Have a good evening,
Mary

Hi Everyone! I went shopping today and shopped til I dropped. I found a few bargains today. I went shopping yesterday after work and got a few things for gifts next year. I went to hickory farms to get a few things for new years eve. Everything was 50% off so I bought some mustard,sweet & sour sauce, turkey sumer sausage. I also had to go to bath & body works for more lotions and bath items. I bought a game for my nintendo ds. I bought some grocery items and a christmas scrub top at walmart. I had to use some coupons before they expired. I bought a large scrub top for next year and it was 50% off. We then went to aldi's for more grocery stuff. My mom is having her annual party tomorrow so we needed buns and a few other things. I tried to rent mama mia for tomorrow but it was sold out. Now I have to find room for everything.

My mom was telling me about people who have gastric bypass getting new addictions other than food. I now think mine is shopping and trying to find bargains and using coupons.

Tracy- I hope you feel better. What grocery store sells lobsters for that price? Is it just a local store? Are they frozen or fresh?

Cheri- You need to take a break and rest. Do you get accupuncture done? A doctor told my mom it might help her. She has spinal stenosis in her back. She went to see a neurosurgeon about it and he suggested it. she's going to see another doctor for a second opinion.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Its 60 degrees here now and we are having some crazy weather this winter. We got rain instead of snow for christmas.

I work monday and then I'm off the rest of the week til saturday.

Good Night Everyone! emoticon

Afternoon Sparkies sounds like your night was like mine Tracy. I have been half awake all night long, worried about Kourtney being in a house with no telephone. Kourtney is Tedd's sister and I treat her like my own daughter. Anyways she lost her cell phone and I gave her one of my old ones and since we just upgraded our cell phones, the SIM cards they came with we did not use, so I was giving her my SIM card. Well they assigned it to DH phone and now can not be used by anyone but his cell phone number. So then I start to call around different Rogers to see who has the cards and what time they are closed. After 5 tries I find one that has then and is open until 11pm (the others all closed at 5pm. My conversation went as such.
Me: "Hi I am looking for a SIM card, do you have any?"
Dippy on the other end: "Yes we do"
Me: "And what time are you open til?"
Dippy: "Oh we are open until 11pm"
Me: "Thanks I will be down later to pick up a SIM card"
Dippy: "Ok thank you"
and we hang up. Now from that conversation what was so hard to understand what I was looking for and by the phrase later what would that imply!! Well we showed up at 6:15 at this RogersPlus (sells/rents videos, SIM cards and such)and DD goes in to pick up her card and the guy says I can't sell you the SIM card only a certain person can sell them. So flustered DD leaves the store and as she is getting into the van she is telling me this..well I think this was close to being the few straws for me that was breaking the camels back, cause I went in there and asked him why she could not purchase a card when I called and was told that yes you have them and you are o[en until 11pm. His reply was was they lady you spoke to is the only one who can sell them and she left at 6pm. I then repeated my conversation with her to him and asked what was so hard to understand what it was I was looking for and when I said I will be in later did she not understand?? She could have said I am the only one who can sell you one and I am only here until 6pm. So no I am spending all day on the phone with Rogers call centers trying to get this mess cleared up. I am emotional wreck hugs to all emoticon

Good Morning Ladies, another Canadian soldier has died in Afghanistan.I am beginning to dread the news.I will send you ladies who asked for the address the address it is long .Rest assured they shred all envelopes afterwards so the return address is not available to the taliban.They did catch them going through the garbage earlier looking for the addresses .I just phoned my father-in-law so he wouldn't be worried he is in his mid 80's and I know he is following the news assiduously.Back later,love and hugs,Cheri

Well it is official-- I am quite ill.. a small temp, coughing up yucky stuff and I feel like a truck ran me over.. I am making tea and soup for dinner. I can not even think about cooking.. maybe some scrambled eggs and grits, they go down easily. I promise I will be back later but right now I need to sit with my feet up-- Love you all
