WOW Annie - that is really awesome!!! Good for you!

Sam just posted pics of Thomas showing he rolls from his stomach to his back and he's not even 4 weeks old yet. She said last week he had done it and we all figured it was just a fluke, but he's doing it regularly now! Hard to believe!!

OK this is ,,the BEST I have ever done,in grocery shopping.. my TOTAL bill came to,, and DRUM ROLL !!! emoticon 52 CENTS ~~ I kept my receipt so no one would think that I was making this up !!
I had 3 BAGS of groceries,, and she even double bagged my groceries , there was SO much !! I had to call my BFF,, she was SO happy for me,, my other BFF said she was SO jealous of me,, so there were 2 different reactions !! LOL

I did have lots of free items,, and with coupons// double off coupons from the store,, I DID IT !!!
my DS said,,hey Mom ,,I think you could be on that TV show,, EXTREME COUPONERS !!!

Good morning. 49 here now but going to 70.

Trash man just went. I think he was having trouble with his lifter this morning. Aiyden goes to Ohio this weekend and won't be back till we go up for Elaine's baby shower. We go up May 3 and come back May 7. It'll be his longest time with JJ but it'll be his April and May visit combined. 12 days since he'll come to the hotel when we get there. M8ght as well get used to it I guess. He'll get him 2 weeks at a time during the summer.

Good morning from a very sunny Fri..It is only 32 right now..but will get to the middle 50"s

Annie, What a beautiful puzzle. That would be the kind Mr Ken would love to do too...

Trudy, I really starting to watch my sodium when I was told by the eye dr on Nov 16th that my BP was very high and sent me right away to our family dr....I than wasn't aware that it must have been the turkey and only having half my HBP dosage (that the heart dr screwed up on) giving me only 80 MG instead of 160 MG for a few months that landed me in the ER on Nov 23rd...So now, I have been watching my sodium very closely ever since than....I was never aware of some of the things that have so much sodium and never knew it!!! We check everything now and my BP has been better than GREAT!!!

Joyce, Oh I am so glad that you were able to hunt down a little yellow/bright green vest for Aiyden!! Oh that will look so cute on him and boy will the garbage man ever get a kick out of him too....Sure hope it comes fast.

Not sure what Mr Ken is up to yet today...I just go with the flow...I think he is going to make sure and get some new sub pump hose as it seems like the water isn't going far enough away from the house....

I'm not sure if you know what a pasty is....potato & meat in crust. I only eat a small amount of crust and than will be very careful of the salt for the rest of the day. I usually check my BP about three hours after I eat one....

Good morning,
Sunshine!! WooHoo!!
Liz, what a nice bag of goodies you won!! Have fun with your new stuff!!
Annie, my husband used to stay up all night too. Drove me nuts! I don't know how some peoples circadian rhythms get off kilter so much! The puzzle is really pretty though!
Joyce, a little downtime this morning is nice isn't it! It's nice that Sam can earn a little extra by painting apartments and cleaning.
Merri, it is possible to get used to less sodium, sugar whatever the issue may be. Just a couple of weeks and your body will adjust. Sometimes it's the mind that doesn't want to follow!! emoticon
Not much going on today, that makes me happy. I had a really packed week.
Everyone have a good day!!

Morning! 37 and sunny here today! It will go up to 50.

Yesterday at my Embroidery Group I won one of the 3 bags of goodies they raffle off. I got quite a lot of useful embroidery-related items worth over $50. I love to win things but very rarely do. The tickets are 3/$2.00 and the items are donated. The money is used for classes and seminars so everyone wins.

Roz - glad you didn't get hurt!

Have a great weekend!

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day with no wind and temperature got to 59 degrees. I had a tough breathing day and sciatica was acting up so did 50 minutes of walking and 6,482 steps. Slow and easy. My computer has really been acting up lately and I am not happy with it. I keep getting suspended from my email and I have done everything they said to do. I have reset the password and everything. This morning I couldn't even get online so had to restart my modem. I guess I will have to call Raymond again and see if he can figure it out. Well, hoping today is a better day and am going to go get started on it. Have a great weekend.

Sounds like some special family time Roz! Glad you weren't hurt by those strong waves!

Annie, I love the puzzle! I used to love doing puzzles but with all the little hands here right now I can't attempt one. Lol

I don't know how your DH can do that!! Sure hope he sleeps tonight!

This morning the waves were unusually big and I was toppled over twice. Thank goodness I was not injured but still was able to swim 100 breast strokes and do some squats and stretches and the water was warmer than yesterday when it seemed a little cooler than usual.

Yesterday I went into San Fernando (second city) to a church service where my younger daughter was the lay preacher, and it was good spending some time with her and my three year old grand girl, She took her from preschool and we were all happy being together for a while.
They live in the Central part of the island and I'm in the deep South.
I got home at 4.00 pm then went to our local church's Women;s League planned walk
which was fun although not well attended.

Have a blessed time of day everyone.
Much Love,
Roz.

Zone 3: Mission #5 Friday


Today let's grab some general purpose cleaner and shine those counter tops and bathroom sinks! Clear everything off the counter top and wipe them from side to side and top to bottom. Then use a little elbow grease and scrub your sink, then spritz the counter top and sink with a little windex to make it shine.

This is the last day we have in the guest bedroom. We have worked hard this week, and I am proud of you! Today set your timer and relax. For 15 minutes sit down and have a cup of tea or coffee (don't forget to drink your water). Take time to be still and take care of you.

Good Morning Everyone!

Supposed to be sunny and around 70 the rest of the week here. It was 84 yesterday, almost too warm. Thankfully we always have a good breeze here.

I'm sure Jerry will be glad to be finished with the dental work, Peggy. Brenda goes tomorrow to get the second half of her below the gum scraping done. Been a few weeks since the first half and she did NOT enjoy it at all, took about three hours and 30 shots of novocaine!

Annie, we had an asparagus patch where I grew up, too! Did your DH really stay up the entire night? WOW!

Merri, I found those vests on Amazon. Going to look at WM to see if they might have them there, too.

Sharon, that has to be so uncomfortable with your lung issues. You really do well in spite of that!

Yes, Gwyn, the exercise room is really nice, now I just need to USE it! LOL

Today is Andrea's "late day" - works 2-6, so I shouldn't get the kids till 1:30. Brenda is working at the office all day. Brynlee hung out with me all day yesterday. She was fun. Took her down to the playground to swing for awhile, she had a blast. Sam was painting the apartment that Andrea is moving into. They got permission to use semi gloss paint instead of the flat paint that was used on all the units. Flat paint is impossible to wash and with little ones, it just doesn't work. I think I'm going to have her repaint the kitchen and dining area here for us.

Hope everyone has a good day!!

OH MY,, I am not used to 5:00A.M. getting up,, but when he goes though the never sleeping/then sleeping the day after that until 5 P.M. it sure sets my body to WHAT TIME IS IT !!

Off to take the dog to the groomer,,a little shopping and run cans through the machine.. My X-neighbor brought 4 HUGE sacks of cans !!! YES !!

Trudy:
As a kid,,when we lived in Eastern Oregon,, we had asparagus growing wild in our yard/fields,, We would just pick it ,, take a bite off the top,, throw away the rest,, NOW it is like,, GOLD to buy some good asparagus that doesn't cost a fortune !!

everyone have a great day !!

Good morning...the sun it out!!! First time since a week ago....They are saying NO more snow now at all....It started snowing yesterday again and than the sleet too...

Today Mr Ken has to see his pulmonary dr at 10 and than I see my rheumologist at 11:15. They are in the same hospital and just one different floors. That is so nice that they can get the appointments together like that for us....

Than off to pay for second house taxes....As usual...hamburgers for lunch again....Good thing I don't mind going with the flow LOL...Doesn't matter to me at all as long as Mr Ken's finds something he likes......

I had my steamed fish again yesterday. It looks just like mashed potatoes LOL...But, I don't think I could go back now and eat the fish with all of the sauce that they put on it in the tray....It has been five months now with me really watching my sodium. Don't miss it at all....

Annie, I agree..what a lot of work done in one day. I bet it felt good when it was all done too...

Joyce, They have to have those little vest some place that this little guy had one on...

Good morning,
It's cloudy and cool today. Only supposed to get to 40 I think. I'll be happy when spring FINALLY gets here! As will so many on here!!
I went to volunteer a bit early yesterday. There was a luncheon for all of the receptionists. It was very nice. Then home for 15 minutes and out again to go to a cooking demo at one of the local grocery stores. Asparagus was featured. Oh my goodness. There were 4 recipes and they were all delicious. Luckily one local store has asparagus on sale. I'll go get some this morning. I'm going to play euchre this afternoon and tonight go to that Olive Oil store for a cooking demo. It's A Taste of the Tropics and includes a wine tasting. Those are so much fun! I've been to 2 before and have enjoyed them so much. The cooking demos at the grocery store are always great, too!! I've been to a lot of them.
Joyce, now that you've pointed out the "numbers" to Aidyen, he'll probably start calling Brenda out!! Her gig is about up!! (LOL)
It sounds like everyone is doing well. I hope you all have a fantastic day!!

Yesterday was busy and glad it is over. I did 30 minutes of walking and 6,246 steps. I had a dentist appointment first thing in the morning and then at 1:00 I had an ultra-sound of the thyroid. Now to wait for the results. I am having problem getting some junk up from my lungs so breathing has been really tough. I did walk as much as I could and feel like my steak is still going strong. It was a lovely day and we got to 52 degrees with bright sunshine and a strong breeze in the afternoon. This was our first 50 degree day for this year. It was so nice. I think today I will open the door out to the deck. Hope today is a little more quiet and I think I will just take it easy. Have a good day.

Good morning all!! It's 60 and after breakfast and my bike ride I'm off to WW's.

Jerry is off to the dentist. They couldn't finish the work on him on Tuesday because they had an emergency.

I'm going to clean out my stuff from under my bathroom sink today. It always seems to get messed up

This little guy actually got to sit in the passenger seat of the truck too...

Zone 3: Mission #4 Thursday


For the bathroom today, take 10 minutes to toss old cosmetics and perfumes. If you have these items that you have not used for over a year but they are still hanging around, it is time to dump them. If you have not worn anything in the past year then toss it. Most cosmetics have a limited shelf life and are harboring grounds for bacteria. This also applies to lotions and moisturizers.

Extra Room; I understand for some of you who are new to FlyLady there is a lot of hard work to be done. So, today we are going to do an extra 27 Fling Boogie like we did on Monday. For those of you who are FLYing and just need some maintenance in this room your mission is to sweep or vacuum this room.

One little thing that helps me is to put on some uplifting music while I do these missions!

Sounds like you had a perfect day Sharon! Good for you!

Annie, that'll be a good project out of the way - I'm sure they appreciate your help!

Funny story - Aiyden came over from Brenda's with Elmer's Glue in his hand (after I'd told him he couldn't have mine). I asked him "Why aren't you just staying at Mom Mom's with the glue??" He said "Well, she has all five kids there!" I said, "Excuse me, how many kids are here?" He stopped and thought, then said "One, two, three.......OOOPS!" I laughed so hard - she has them brainwashed that she has "all five" when most of the time I have more than she does. LOL

Yesterday was a lovely day. It turned out to be sunny and 44 degrees with a light breeze. I did my 60 minutes of walking and 8,278 steps. I was able to make it out to shop for my new recliner and found just what I needed and my daughter Barb bought it for me for Mother's Day. How nice is that. I will get it in about 4 weeks and it is very needed. We then went for dinner and I enjoyed a nice chicken breast dinner and some great conversation. It was a good night. My son came running in about 8 and had my taxes ready to sign and took them back so she could e-file them. I will get quite a bit back this year (about 1,700 dollars) and I am very happy about that. I have an ultra sound of the thyroid at l:00 so not looking forward to going out again. Well off to rest a little before getting ready for that. Have a great day.

Hi everyone!

Brenda has all 5 kids today - well, except for when they're here - LOL She always forgets that part of it. Brynlee is here now for her nap. Sam is painting the apartment downstairs that Andrea will be moving into. She's a go getter when it comes to being willing to paint and clean to flip apartments and help out with their finances. Such a good gal!

Andy's brother and SIL have canceled their plans to come south. Seems every day something else was delaying it and they just decided maybe they were being told to stay home. They'll be down the end of May, bringing their grandsons down for Dollywood and then staying the week till the family reunion at our cousins' home. Beginning to wonder if that's actually going to happen this year, lots of complications there, too. Oh well, one thing at a time! LOL

Gwyn, I went in and checked out the workout room here at the apts. yesterday. They've added some new things and it looks pretty nice. There are a couple of treadmills, ellipticals, weight machines, etc. They put in a wall of mirrors and have TVs mounted above the treadmills and ellipticals. Pretty nice! What is your routine at the gym?

Peggy, we have a Dollar Tree around the corner from us I think. I don't know why I never think to go there. Well, realistically I don't get out of the apartment that much I guess - usually just a quick trip to Wal Mart or Michaels when I get the chance. LOL Heck, there's a mall attached to Wal Mart and I think I've only been in that twice!

Merri, Golden Corral sounds like a great idea for Wednesday! But BOO on the snow! It just won't quit this year, will it?

Hope all of you have a great day!

Good morning from a calm before the storm day. We are going to get snow again starting around 1 this afternoon...Mr Ken has his PT right at that time. We are only 2 miles away tho...So we can head right home...

Mr Ken is going to put his blade back on his riding tractor once again. He thought winter was done!!

Today Mr Ken gets a break from cooking. He likes the idea of going to the Golden Corral on Wed...I am with him with what he wants to do...He eats very well there....And of course the young man fixes my steamed fish just for me....A win/win situation....

Joyce, That is alot of names to keep straight. Just think of the Dugger family on TV with 19 of them with the first letter of their names starting with a "J"

Oh yes, we are getting a Gummy candy factory about 8 miles from our house. Great...we already have a Jelly Belly factory about the same distance factory too....

Zone 3: Mission #3 Wednesday


Bathroom Mission: Today you are to wash your bathroom rugs, shower curtains and accessories. This will take longer than 15 minutes and for those of you that are working outside the home you may have to schedule this. In total, to take the rugs to the machine and bring them back to the bathroom is less than 15 minutes but the wait time for the washing machine and dryer will take up some time. If you have not rebooted your laundry this is a good time to do that!

For the guest bedroom, Get your feather duster and get the cobwebs out of the corners. I have a bad habit to not step foot in our guest bedroom for a few days, and when I do it is only for a second. I am sure this is a cringe worthy mission, however it has to be done. You CAN do this, YOU have the power to be brave.

Roz, indeed I do get names mixed up sometimes! Especially since so many in my family have done the matching initials thing. Here I have Andrea, Austin, Aiyden, Adalyn and Aspyn! Thankfully Sam and Austin departed from that and have Brynlee and Thomas. LOL

My daughter Amy has Courtney, Colin, Chance
Grandson Jay has Jason, Justin, Jocelyn and Jasmin!

Had a nice day here - a bit windy but got to 70. They're still having snow in Ohio. Not sure if Andy's brother is heading south tomorrow now or not - they keep putting it off because of weather at one place or another. Originally they were supposed to head to TN a week ago!

Trudy --------That was quite a valid question. Trinidad and Tobago is 10-11 degrees above the Equator, and being in the Tropics we only have 2 seasons , a Wet and a Dry Season. We are in the dry season now.Hope this helps.

Joyce-----Do you get some names mixed up sometimes ? Having a large family must be so much fun though.

Got the house cleaned in quite a shorter time than usual, that even I was surprised
I went swimming again this morning and the sea was quite calm , I think the early morning exercise gave me some energy...

Got to go to a Congregational meeting at church this evening..Looking forward to the outcome of "Married AT First Sight" when I get home. later.

Much love .,
Roz.

Hi everyone...

Brenda works this afternoon so I'll have the three kids 1-5. It's really not so bad as long as the "moods" aren't terrible.

It was only 40 this morning here - they had freeze warnings overnight. Snowing in Ohio though. This is the winter that just doesn't want to quit I guess.

Annie, that sure was great presence of mind for that little one just to hunker down in Mom and Dad's bed till someone came home. How scary for the adults though, realizing she was "home alone." WOW!

Peggy, enjoy your busy day.

Merri, hope your son gets there safely and all goes well for him there.

Sharon, have fun looking at recliners and enjoy your dinner.

Gwyn, it always feels good to get things accomplished that you didn't really expect to, doesn't it?

Trudy, glad you're seeing some sunshine! That always makes things seem better. That's one thing here in Rock Hill, we do get an awesome amount of sunshine compared to what winters were like in Ohio.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Good morning with the sun shinning....It is only 27 and we had better enjoy today as again tomorrow, we will have rain/sleet and snow once again. When will this ever stop...But than we didn't get hit like some cities/states up north of us. Green Bay where the Packers play got over 24" I think within two days...We had ice and snow on top of it.....I guess yesterday I wanted to get out there with Mr Ken as he didn't need to be doing anything with is hip and falling....Also, I love to shovel...

Yesterday was some frozen goulash that we had made a while back. That always comes in handy when we are busy outside....

Our Rick is on his way to Afghanistan right now. He wrote an email last night that he will call when he gets to Kabul...I seen him liking some of the things on had on FB...so, I know he is still someplace LOL

So today, are his famous hamburgers on the grill since it should get to be about 39 out there...He seems to just have few things he likes anymore....I can eat just about anything he cooks as long as the sodium is low.....I am doing so well with this HP too....I do miss having ham...but Mr Ken said he was getting tired of it anyway....Also his turkey in the bag...I think that had alot of sodium in it too being in a bag.....

Gwyn.I seen on the weather map where your state really got hit really hard with snow too....

Good morning,
Well, finally we have some beautiful sunshine!! It's funny, how after a few days of gray skies, we forget how recently the sun did shine!!
Annie, oh my, that story about our great niece! I'll bet it took a long time for those parents to get over their screwup!!
Peggy, it sounds like you're going to have a fun day! Do you have Hands in Motion every week?
My little group has trouble coming up with one day a month to get together. We decided we'd do it the second Monday of the month. We decided this in Dec. Well, we've already changed it to the 2nd Tuesday for May!! It's always something.
Roz, it sounds like you're doing well. This may be a dumb question after all this time but, I'm not a geography whiz. Are you located below the equator? I know you have nice weather most of the year, so, I'm assuming you're close. But, are you on opposite seasons that we are, here in the US and Canada?
Sharon, so glad you're doing well. I hope you do get to go search for a new recliner.
Gwyn it is good to get to the "things" you don't have time to do when you're working. An unexpected day inside is perfect for that!
Merri, I hope you're not still having snow on the ground.
Liz, you're amazing, how much you manage to do with only one working hand. It's inspiring to see you doing all that you do!!
Joyce, it sounds like the "kid shuffle" is alive and well in Holly Hill, SC!! (LOL) Hope everything is going well with everyone!
I had a tooth problem and the dentist was able to fit me in yesterday afternoon. I'm so glad! I hate tooth/teeth problems. And I really like my dentist and his staff!!
Today I'll go to the Y in the afternoon and then out to meet 4 friends for dinner and a catch up visit!
Everyone have a great day!

Good morning all!! It's 50 and we're out for our walk.

Bike after breakfast and Jerry has to go to the dentist and get his new crown put on.

I have a Trustees meeting at my house at 10 and then Hands in Motion at 1, my favorite.

Glad your tests were good Sharon and Gwyn isn't it great to clean stuff out on your unexpected snow day?

Have a great day!!

Well, this morning it is still cool at 29 degrees but warming to 47 for our high. I will take that as it is so much better than we have been seeing. Yesterday started warming and we got to 39 degrees but still windy and that wind goes right through me. I got to the clinic and got my blood draw and it came back at the same of 127 and steady. I will take that and the doctor said to make sure and watch for any change in how I am feeling and we will do another blood draw on the 30th. I have a blood pressure check then and they will also check my blood pressure cuff to make sure it reads the same as theirs. I did my 60 minutes of walking and 8,644 steps. Better than the day before. I got 3 loads of laundry done and a few other little things around the house. Today I would like to do some dusting but won't push myself. I need to do this slowly. I hope to feel good enough to go look at new recliners and out for dinner tonight. Have a good day and keep moving.

Zone 3: Mission #2 Tuesday


Today we are going to shine our tubs or showers! We have talked about shinning our sinks since you started and we want you take 5 or 10 minutes to shine that tub or shower. Do not get obsessed with the tub being perfect. You can do this mission while you are in the shower, just scrub the tub with whatever works. Anything is better than nothing, then spritz it with a little windex and dry it with a towel like you shine your sink.

On to the guest bedroom! Today we are going to tackle the bed and get it company ready. If you need to tackle this 15 or 10 minutes at a time that is fine, don't burn out. Now, if the bed is already clean ask yourself "how long has it been since the sheets have been washed?" We are coming into the holidays soon, and I am so excited. Let's rid ourselves of the stress of having to rush, and have this bedroom ready for your loved ones.

Babysteps, set your timer for 15 minutes!

WOW emoticon ,, with all the snow many of you are getting !!!

I laughed, at todays Fly Lady,, I did that on Sat.. My sis was going to buy hand lotion.. I go NO I have SO many bottles , my friend at the beach home,, always was buying hand lotion,, didn't like it gave it to me,, I had 6 bottles of opened hand lotion,, I gave to my DS,,she was SO excited !!
The unopened bottles I gave to a homeless shelter..

I am cleaning one window at a time,, I am doing the wood blinds and then wash a window.. I remembered when I tried doing ALL the windows in this house,,how you gals said NO ANNIE,, way to much.. well after this last pneumonia,, and DH says I still don't act like I am totally over it.. I have learned ,,ONE window each day.. !!

Joyce:
I am EXHAUSTED with reading which child was were,,and who had whom!!!!

funny story:
When I was teaching school.. it was time for the parents to pick up their child.. Well both my niece and her DH came in separate cars to get their daughter,my g-niece.. I go.."Chelcie wasn't at school today".. THEY yelled at each other,, YOU were to bring her,, I go,, I will start praying RIGHT now !! off they drove..
They had just bought a new home, and it was their FIRST day from their works/kids schools from this new home.The 2 older kids caught a school bus,,but Chelcie was attending my preschool...
They called me,, and said it was ALL fine..little Chelcie ( she was in my 4 yr old class ) was all snuggled in her parents bed.. She woke up and NO one was in this brand new home,, she said to herself.. I will be safe in my mommy/daddies bed.. I will stay there until they come home..
now it WAS not funny at the time,, but then the movie came out,,""HOME ALONE"" and we laughed,, THEY could have made that movie !!!

So sorry that some of you are having snow and cold weather still, because of that I will never complain about it being too hot here. Today its cooler as we had a few light showers this morning.

Annie-----That was so funny about your neighbour. We do have smaller buses here that facilitate seniors where you call and they come pick you up but it's mostly in and around the city.
Those cookies must have been really delicious. I make what we call coconut drops and give some to whoever is our preacher on Communion Sunday. I share them so that I don't eat too many myself. emoticon

I usually go to town twice a year and make an outing of it.
It is free tor Seniors to travel on the bus and water taxi throughout the country so I make the most of that opportunity.

Yesterday we had a lovely Sermon at church everyone was impacted in some way . I just hope and pray that It will encourage us all to make certain life changes for the better

I actually went to the beach this morning and did swim and walked at least 300 steps in the sea, also did some stretches. I always forget what it's like to be so buoyant in the sea and it really encourages movement.
Only did about 200 breast strokes and 100 front crawl..

Schools reopened today after a 2 week Easter vacation.

Hope everyone has a blessed week,
Much Love,
Roz.

Today I woke up to 20 degrees and it is sunny with no wind. It sounds like it will be warming up so sure do like that.
Yesterday was cold, windy and cloudy. I did 45 minutes of walking and had 6,656 steps, A real quiet day and rested well. I just got back from having my blood draw and I am excited to see what the results are. I am hoping for it to be up more. Off to see what I can do around the house today. Have a good day.

Hi gals...

Wow Gwyn, that was quite a snowfall for this late in the season.

Liz, this has to be one of the craziest springs on record, for sure! Glad you had a nice dinner with Lauren!

Peggy, it's 46 here this morning but the skies are blue, so not complaining!

We had tornado sirens going off yesterday afternoon, but thankfully nothing developed. We only had one nasty thunderstorm roll through with high winds and heavy rain but it didn't last long. Looks like it was worse up toward Charlotte. Looked like the weather in Ohio was pretty much the same as ours with tornado warnings, too.

Nothing on the agenda today. I have Aspyn sleeping here in the kids' room. Brenda brought her over because Adalyn was asleep in the pack and play at her place. She did have two of them, but Sam took the one back for Thomas. It has the bassinette insert for him to sleep in. Aspyn and Brynlee are both too big to sleep in the swing or bouncer anymore.

Hope everyone has a good Monday!!

Morning! It is b35 and poured all night and is raining heavily this morning. Sat. it was 83 and the temp. dropped to 38. This is crazy!

I did go to Lauren's for supper yesterday. She is such a good cook! Who would have thought!

Today I have to ready a piece of canvas for my needlepoint class on Thurs. I have to cut the canvas, tape the edges, and tack it to the stretcher bars. Tricky to do with only one hand, but I will get it done!

Sorry some of you still have snow! I hope we are done.

Good morning,
Well, it's snowing this morning. I'm not sure it's ever snowed this late in the spring before.
Wed. it's going to be 70. Spring is having a hard time coming this year!!
I have such a busy week that if I don't go anywhere today, I'll still get plenty of out of the house time this week!! Crazy.
Not much to say this morning. I just wanted to check in and I hope you all have a good day!!

thanks. yes I was stuck inside this house on Saturday. I got my grocery shopping done 1st thing in the morning while it was still easy to get around outside. and then it snowed, and it snowed and it snowed. 8 inches where I live. Hubby got the snow done with the snow blower and I went shopping at a local mall and he went to work. He said it was icy when he came home. I am going to go to the gym and exercise.

Zone 3: Mission #1 Monday

We have moved through the zones and we have arrived in the bathroom and an extra room!
Your mission for today is to do a 27 fling boogie in the bathroom! Get rid of those shampoos, conditioners, hair gels, etc., that you have held onto but you don't use them! Toss them! Set your timer for 15 minutes and grab a trash bag and start flinging!
You might even be able to get in a second 27 fling in under 15 minutes!
For the extra Room this month, let's get in to the guest bedroom. We will continue with the 27 Fling Boogie in this room. So, set you timer for 15 minutes and start flinging!

Zone 3: Mission #2 Tuesday

Today we are going to shine our tubs or showers! We have talked about shinning our sinks since you started and we want you take 5 or 10 minutes to shine that tub or shower. Do not get obsessed with the tub being perfect. You can do this mission while you are in the shower, just scrub the tub with whatever works. Anything is better than nothing, then spritz it with a little windex and dry it with a towel like you shine your sink.
On to the guest bedroom! Today we are going to tackle the bed and get it company ready. If you need to tackle this 15 or 10 minutes at a time that is fine, don't burn out. Now, if the bed is already clean ask yourself "how long has it been since the sheets have been washed?" We are coming into the holidays soon, and I am so excited. Let's rid ourselves of the stress of having to rush, and have this bedroom ready for your loved ones.
Babysteps, set your timer for 15 minutes!

Zone 3: Mission #3 Wednesday

Bathroom Mission: Today you are to wash your bathroom rugs, shower curtains and accessories. This will take longer than 15 minutes and for those of you that are working outside the home you may have to schedule this. In total, to take the rugs to the machine and bring them back to the bathroom is less than 15 minutes but the wait time for the washing machine and dryer will take up some time. If you have not rebooted your laundry this is a good time to do that!
For the guest bedroom, Get your feather duster and get the cobwebs out of the corners. I have a bad habit to not step foot in our guest bedroom for a few days, and when I do it is only for a second. I am sure this is a cringe worthy mission, however it has to be done. You CAN do this, YOU have the power to be brave.

Zone 3: Mission #4 Thursday

For the bathroom today, take 10 minutes to toss old cosmetics and perfumes. If you have these items that you have not used for over a year but they are still hanging around, it is time to dump them. If you have not worn anything in the past year then toss it. Most cosmetics have a limited shelf life and are harboring grounds for bacteria. This also applies to lotions and moisturizers.
I understand for some of you who are new to FlyLady there is a lot of hard work to be done. So, today we are going to do an extra 27 Fling Boogie like we did on Monday. For those of you who are FLYing and just need some maintenance in this room your mission is to sweep or vacuum this room.
One little thing that helps me is to put on some uplifting music while I do these missions!

Zone 3: Mission #5 Friday

Today let's grab some general purpose cleaner and shine those counter tops and bathroom sinks! Clear everything off the counter top and wipe them from side to side and top to bottom. Then use a little elbow grease and scrub your sink, then spritz the counter top and sink with a little windex to make it shine.
This is the last day we have in the guest bedroom. We have worked hard this week, and I am proud of you! Today set your timer and relax. For 15 minutes sit down and have a cup of tea or coffee (don't forget to drink your water). Take time to be still and take care of you.

Good Sunday morning everyone"

Joyce:
No that was a different nephew,, the one at the can machine lives about a mile from me,, the one that works for the cable co..lives in WA.. He said when he came to work,,he saw the pile of papers for work,,went though them and said " I WANT the OR one,, that one even had our last name on it due to the workers had to come to our house and say what they were doing,,"

I had made him and his co worker a batch of brownies,, I was outside talking with them,, and my DONE buzzer went off (who knows when? ) so I appologized and said I thought they were over done,, WELL nephew and his co worker said NO we want them.. Nephew said his co worker ate his before they got back to the office,, Josh took his home and our G- nephews ate them ALL in 10 mins..!!

We had to go out and see how many branches were on our roof as Mr Ken said he heard them hitting the roof all night long. There is only one small one...The lady next door tho has plenty of big broken off branches in her yard.

Our Priest had on FB that his mom is turning 94 today. They make their own spaghetti sauce and sell in the stores. Now that he has her busy doing that....he thinks she should be out today shoveling snow so he can have some money to buy her a birthday cake. He is just so funny and loves his mom so much. He takes he so many places with him....

I can see our Rick being like that to me when I get 94 LOL

Hi everyone!

Annie, that was a funny story about your nephew! Great sense of humor he has! Is that the same one that was at the can recycling place?

Merri, the weather up your way sounds awful! I have a friend in Minnesota who said they're having a full out blizzard. All their church services are cancelled, too.

We had a beautiful day yesterday, around 80. It'll be that warm again today but we have severe weather coming in around 2 PM. Heavy thunderstorms, possible tornadoes, high winds, etc. I guess we won't be able to go see Colin as planned this afternoon. Not a good time to be on the roads.

Peggy, that sounds like a good time - even with the gaps in between things.

Trudy, what fun that wine tasting must have been! Glad you had such a good turnout! Enjoy your quiet day and your book! Sounds perfect!

Sharon, I know you'll be happy to have that test behind you and will pray it's a good one! Yaaay for these technology savvy young people! Glad he got you back up and running!

Liz, hope you enjoy your lunch with Lauren. Bet you can't wait for spring to decide to show up there! Crazy, crazy weather this year!

Gwyn, you do fine with your posts, we're just happy to hear from you! And truly, you do say a lot more now than when you began! I used to take notes as I read the posts so I could remember what I wanted to say. LOL

Got the hospital bill for Andy's "Acute UTI" yesterday. It was $27,300! Told you it would be the most expensive UTI on record! LOL Thank God for good insurance - we only had to pay $300 and I had already paid $100 of that at the ER. The doctor bill we got for over $2400 was a part of that. I realized I could get online and check the Explanation of Benefits from my insurance company and according to that, I don't have to pay that to the doctors. They are "in network providers" and have to accept what the insurance company pays. These were the doctors in the hospital who stop by and say "hi, how are you today"! I don't know if they think they get the bill to you before you get your insurance papers that you'll just go ahead and pay it or what. They said I could pay $400 a month.....like I have that much left over between pays? Anyhow, I sent copies of the insurance papers to them and told them to contact the insurance company if they had questions. Hopefully that will be the end of it.

Hope all of you have a great day!!

Good morning,
We have gray skies and rain this morning. I heard it raining in the night. But, we don't have the snow that those north of us got!
Merri and Gwyn, I hope that snow doesn't last long.
Merri, good idea just staying in pjs!! Comfy too!
Gwyn, you got a lot done!! That will be nice when you head back to work!
Peggy, that was a long concert. I'm glad you enjoyed the music anyway!
Annie, what a funny story about your nephew!!
Liz, isn't this weather crazy this year! I hope you can get out to enjoy a meal with your family.
Sharon, sounds like your computer problems may be behind you. It was nice of your grandson to fix it. And to hook up the tablet too!!
The wine tasting party here, yesterday afternoon was so much fun!! The young gal who does them is so sweet!! She's moving to TX so, I'll miss her!! I had 17 here, including me. A really fun afternoon!
I'm not doing anything today. I have a good book I'm reading. I'll finish it!
Everyone have a great Sunday!!

What a messy wet/snow/sleet Sunday morning!!! It is just terrible out there!! They are saying to stay home and off of the roads. Right now it is sleet/ice and going to get snow later today...It has been raining since Fri noon.....

So today is pork chops and sauerkraut....Even our Priest who lives in the Milwaukee area isn't going to have Mass today...I bet that is a first for him...He is in his 70's...

I could hear Mr Ken get up a few times last night to make sure those darn big trees next door didn't land our our roof...We have asked her for yrs now to cut them cut down..NOPE...Even if our Rick would pay for half of the cost....They are so old and you can just hear them cracking in the wind....

Yesterday went by much to quickly. I got 30 minutes of walking and 5,588 steps. My daughter came over at 11:00 and she called my grandson in Indiana and he spent about 4 hours in my computer trying to fix a windows update problem. It was very frustrating and I know he was irritated by the time it was done. Felt really bad that he spent his Saturday in my computer. I do not know for sure if it is fixed but it looks like it. They also got a old tablet that Tina had linked to my computer so that if I am in the hospital again I will be able to check my mail and do things like that. Aren't kids great. I am not sure if tomorrow or Tuesday will be my day for blood work but looking forward to getting it over with because not knowing drives me crazy. If it is still going up this time I will be over the worry stage for now. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Good morning everyone!! It is 71 already today so it will probably get t o the 80's

After Church it's Publix for rolls and bike after breakfast.

The concert was great yesterday but we got there at 7 am and it wasn't over until 10:20. There was waiting time between things and then there were too many speeches.

The concert was held in Baldwin Park which used to be where the Naval Training Center was. They dedicated the statue too the Blue Jacket warriors who were the women who went through the training there. They already had a statue of the Lone Sailor.

They were very impressive statues.

Morning! We had sunny, 80+ days Friday and Saturday! Today it is back in the 30s and rainy. Yesterday I sat on my sunporch and read with the sliding door open. Today the heat is on. Go figure!

Sorry some of you have snow. I hope it is finished here.

Today I am going to Lauren's for brunch or dinner. She will cake and let me know.

Have a great day!

good morning all. I wish I was able to come up with replys to everyone like all of you do. I never really know what to say.
any way I got all my grocery shopping done before the snow hit and stayed home the rest of the day. I got this house cleaned, my laundry done and ironed. It took hubby an hour to get home.

Good Saturday everyone:

Roz:
You are great at the bus rides/transfers,, we only have one of those small shuttle van kind here,, I understand you call them and they pick you up/drop you off and then when we want to go someplace else or home,,you have to call them.. my DS doesn't have a cell phone,, so I just drive her to wherever she needs to go..

sorry so many of you are getting the snow/ice again..

THIS is a funny:
Our nephew works for a cable company.. he and another worker where here to dig the street up to lay a line for the houses going in.. our "other " neighbor walked out and talked with Josh.. about what they were doing... Josh goes " This seems like a nice neighborhood,,EXCEPT for those CRAZY neighbors over at that house!!!" ( Josh pointing to US, Don and I were inside our house.,lol) our neighbor goes "oh Don and Annie are nice people" THEN Josh goes,,oh that is my aunt and uncle !! emoticon

our neighbor said,,"BOY am I glad I didn't fall into his trap and say something BAD about you and Don" LOL we all laughed !!

Good morning to one crappy Sat morning. It is suppose to be like this through Sun. Maybe some snow tomorrow too...Good thing I did get through to Mr Ken and got out nice and early yesterday and got our errands done. It started to rain right as we were on our way back home...

Today we have a roast in the oven. I knew that darn thing would come in handy sooner than later LOL....

We took our showers and got back into clean PJ's for the day. If the weather does clear up some...than we can get dressed for church....

Gwen & Judy, I think you are both going to get the most of this mess of rain and mostly snow? It looked like it on the weather map anyway..

Joyce, That would be so nice to be able to meet up with Colin...I know he would be so glad to see all of you too....

Good Morning everyone!

Annie, that's great you hit that seafood sale Got to love that!

Peggy, I love to hear a band playing marches. Always try to catch the Geauga County Fair band when we're at the fair. The high school bands have all gotten to playing modern music rather than the marches like they did back in the day!

Sharon, sounds like you are making great improvements! Glad to hear that!

Roz, I can see where you'd need a day to rest after that kind of outing, but awesome you got to meet up with your daughter.

Trudy, that's really neat you got to hear that guy sing - "by accident" - sometimes that's the best way! There's a group that plays at Pigeon Forge we love to hear at the moonshine place and I swear when we plan it, it never works out, but then we run in to them when we aren't expecting it. Enjoy your wine tasting party - sounds like fun!

Merri, what are you and Mr. Ken up to today? How's your weather? Seems like some freaky snowstorms are still lurking around!

Gwyn, I think you'd be wise to get your shopping done before it gets nasty! Ice is the worst!

Talked to Andy's SIL last night - they're still in Ohio and now aren't leaving till Tuesday morning. Supposed to be storms in the south tomorrow and I guess a chance of some snow in TN on Monday, so they opted to wait. The cousins aren't home right now because their son was in an auto accident so they're with him in VA. So, if they're coming here it won't be till next Sun/Mon. and that's always subject to change with them. LOL

Still hoping to see grandson Colin this weekend. His paving crew is working about 2 hrs from here. If he's not working tomorrow we're hoping we might be able to bring him here tonight and take him back tomorrow so he can see everyone. If not, Me, Andy, Brenda and the kids will head over there tomorrow to at least have lunch with him or something.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Good morning,
It's a gray, drizzly morning. It's still warm though!!
Gwyn, you'll probably be really glad if you get your shopping done before the yucky weather!! So glad you had a good week at work.
Sharon, you did have a busy morning yesterday. Your blood work is moving in the right direction!! That's a good thing!!
Peggy, enjoy the concert. I'm with you. I like marches also!
Roz, sounds like you had a big day and getting to see your daughter was special too!!
I took my neighbor to the art show last night. Her sig. other and his son-in-law had a space together. Oh my goodness, the artwork those two do is fantastic!! I say several people I hadn't seen for a long time. So, it was a good evening. My neighbor's daughter was there too. They're still processing the info they got on Thursday. Perfectly understandable!
After we too the daughter home we stopped at a neighborhood pub for a beer and were pleasantly surprised to hear a local guy singing. I've made plans to go see him before, so to just happen upon him was GREAT.
I'm having 16 or so here for a wine tasting party today. So, my little hous will be full!
Everyone have a great Sat.

good morning everyone. it snowed a little over night but the weather reports are saying we are supposed to get rain/snow/ice all day Saturday and into Sunday. Perhaps I should get to the grocery store early so I get that done before the weather turns bad on me. other than that it was a great work week for me

Good morning guys. It is 27 degrees out there right now. I am looking forward to next week because they are predicting maybe some 50 degree temperatures by the end of the week. Yesterday was a cold semi-cloudy day with wind and the wind just went through you. I had my blood draw in the morning and it went good. I am now up to 127 and that is going in the right direction. I feel much more comfortable but will be happy when it gets back into the 130's. I have another blood draw on Monday or Tuesday morning. Not sure yet what Rick set up. I no more than got home from my blood work and was just going to sit down and relax and Son-in-law called to see if I wanted to get groceries so ended going right back out and doing that. By the time I got that all done and put away it was almost noon. Morning sure went by quick. I did 60 minutes of walking and 8,141 steps for yesterday. It is sure getting better. I did a few things around the house and it seems my energy is beginning to pick up so here's to another good day today. Have a great weekend.

Good morning!! It's 67 and I'm off to an early concert with Jerry.

His band is playing for the beginning of a race and there is a ceremony too. They are just playing marches and that is one of my favorite kinds of music to listen to them play.

Good Evening Everyone,
Well I went into the city yesterday, a three hour drive by bus which was quite interesting as there was a delay due to mid morning traffic, anyway I did get my errand done and met up with my older daughter for a while, she works in the city and does not live near to me , so the day was eventful. I left my home at 730 parked the car and caught the 8.00 am bus to the second city where I caught another bus into town. I got back into the house exactly at 4.00 pm..
It's always an outing when I go into town but the next day I have to rest myself so I did just that today.

Peggy & Annie----It's always so good to catch up with old friends.

Have a great weekend Everyone,
Stay blessed,
Much Love,
Roz.

Oh Trudy - what a bad day for you yesterday! So sorry to hear about your friend's daughter - that's awful news to get, but then for it to be on her birthday! WOW!

Merri, hope you convinced Mr. Ken to get out and get it done!

I need to get over to our mall to get a gift card for my daughter to Bath and Body for her birthday. Or maybe I'll just go to Food Lion, it's closer. WM only carries restaurant gift cards, so couldn't get it there. It's weird, the mall is actually attached to WM yet I never think to go over there.

Hope everyone has a good day. It's pretty chilly here right now but supposed to be 80 this afternoon.

Good Fri the 13...It is cloudy here today and only going to get to 43 and it 42 right now...They are saying rain/snow and sleet all weekend.

I am trying to get in threw Mr Ken's head that he had better get to the grocery store this morning to get his darn bread and bananas LOL...I don't like to go out in the rain. My feet and legs ache so bad when I go out in the rain. They have for yrs. That is why I take Gabapentin for the pain...

Well, Mr Ken has started my little Cubs train. It will have four of those crates you can buy at Menards. He is making his own tho. Than we will put two flower pots in each train cars...

I raked the side yard while he was out there doing his fun thing. The problem is tho...he stays out there too long standing on the cement floor...Can't get him to come in when I think it is long enough tho...

Annie, Boy, what a fun day it was at the casino!! I have only been to one once...

So sad to hear of anyone learning that they have cancer. I sure hope your nephew can stay home long enough for his wedding...

We really hate to see our Rick going back over to Afghanistan too. But, that is what he wants to do...His wife is ok with it and I guess that is what counts right now...

Good morning,
Annie and Peggy, what fun catching up with old friends!! I love doing that!! Annie, your trip to the casino was really a successful one!! Wow!!
Joyce, glad you got your WM shopping done. Good deal on pants too!!
Sharon, I hope you find the blood work where you want it to be!
Liz, have a good day, showery though it may be.
I didn't get the rose bush yesterday. I went two more places and they, too, only had the knockout roses. I want a smaller bush. I'll find one eventually and give it to her then. I have to tell you, her birthday was a terrible one. She took her daughter for a Dr. appointment and they got the news that her 47-year-old daughter has terminal cancer. My friend felt like she'd been kicked in the gut. So, very sad. She certainly didn't feel like celebrating her birthday. I didn't see her. Just talked to her. I'll see her tonight. We're going to an art show that her sig. other is involved in.
My great nephew is in England in the Air Force. He's getting married on May 12. He got orders yesterday to pack and be ready to leave in 3 hours. He's been sent to Greece. Because of the unrest in Syria. He hopes he won't miss his wedding.
Also, yesterday would have been my 49th wedding anniversary. So, all in all, it wasn't a very good day.
Today will be better.
I hope you all have a good day.

Yesterday was an okay day. I was tired and rested a lot during the day but did get 45 minutes of walking and 6,220 steps. I am proud of that because I could have been bad and used how I feel as to not doing any. Still going strong on my streak. I have another blood draw this morning so anxious to see what it is at. Hoping it made good progress on going up and I will think positive about that. Off to get ready because I am not sure what time Rick will want to go. I am sure it will be about 8:00. Have a great Friday.

Annie and Peggy - how neat you both reconnected with friends and had such a good time! Love hearing that!

Andy and I did the WM thing and got that out of the way. Got a good deal on long pants for Adalyn - everything is short sets for summer now so got them on clearance for $1. I should have bought more. Might go back and hope some are left.

I just had breakfast with my old friend and boy did we talk and laugh. We haven't gotten together in a while and we sat there from 10:15 until the lunch crowd started coming in at 11:50

It was fun getting together again.

Hi gals....

That had to be a bit scary Sharon - hope things will continue to improve for you!

Gwyn, listen to your "inner self" when it comes to retiring. I don't regret retiring - I was 67. I would have waited a bit longer, but there were changes in health care that would have had an effect on me if I waited any longer, plus my husband was retiring.

Merri, we are lucky that Brenda steps up and helps when we need it. She's really good about that.

Trudy, hope you find that rose bush!!

Peggy, you're as busy as ever.......

Now Andy's brother isn't heading to TN till tomorrow, I guess. Thinking we probably won't see them till the end of next week. LOL

Andrea's short day today - works 2-6 on most Thursdays. I think we'll go get some groceries this morning while we're "kid free". LOL

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning from a very sunny K-town. It is already 55 and going to get to around the middle 60s!!! Than down hill we go again. Just like you Rose...Maybe even snow I think it is Sun...

Trudy, We are both having the same kind of weather too. I guess we should be so thankful that we haven't had any floods nor tornadoes

Joyce, It had to be nice for a while with the kids out having fun...We just need some Me time too...Brenda is such a good sport about helping out with both of you too....

Yesterday after Mr Ken had his PT he asked me if I was up to it to do rake the front yard. He has this tractor that he does his snow with...than he can add this rake thing to the back of it and get all of the old grass up...Than he gets on his/my riding tractor that can cut the grass or pick up all of the grass he had gotten up. I was on the island raking with my new rake and keeping on eye on him. He really loves getting out there doing things like that...Oh yes, and than having the mean neighbor watching him too..

We did enjoy the Golden Corral too. , We did have one manager at ours for awhile too that really had the place in terrible shape with the food. Now too new managers have come and the food is so much better and the people are coming back....

Oh yes, we had two gals yelling at each other in the Walmart parking lot two days ago. Boy the language!!! Never would hear those words in our house!!! One of the head employees actually had to go out and try and settle the argument....Every one was even afraid to get close to the doors as the one lady had her car parked right in the main lane...We hardly go there at all anymore....Would rather pay more and go someplace else...

Good morning,
Spring weather today!! It's supposed to get to 78. Rain/snow mixture again on Sunday. Well, like I said....spring WILL come!!
Annie, I hope your friend was able to make it to visit and have a fun day with you!
Sharon, let's pray for a better day for you today!! So glad the sodium level was up.
Joyce, what a relief that Andy's blood work all came back good!! Once the vascular dr. checks out his legs, you'll be able to breathe easier!! Now, if he would try walking more, I'll bet the swelling and circulation would be much better. Glad you had a good day with the kids. Enjoy the time you do get to visit with the relatives heading your way!
I have the towels in the dryer right now and am going to get the house cleaned up. I have a friend who is having a birthday today. I hope to get her a rose bush. I went to one gardening center yesterday and they only had shrub roses and knockout roses and I wanted a regular smaller rose bush. I'll be on the hunt for that!
Everyone enjoy your day!!

Isn't it a complement when you get to our age when they think we are too young to receive something. LOL. Yesterday ended up being a scary day and I did get 20 minutes walking with 5,164 steps. I was glad to do that. They were on the phone off and on all day until they wanted me to go to the ER and get checked. Thank goodness for all you prayers and that because my sodium level had gone back up to 124 so they felt if I thought it was okay I could go home. I have another blood draw on Friday morning. It was really a relief as the stress and anxiety had me worried it was getting worse. I know that when levels drop below 120 the organs can start to shut down and you can have convulsions and all kinds of things. I slept good last night and feel pretty good this morning. I am so happy that I feel better. I think now that I have been off the magnesium for two days the diarrhea should stop.

Had a really good day with the kids today for a change. After Brenda got home we took the two older ones down to the playground for awhile to burn off some energy.

Dr. office called, all Andy's blood work from yesterday was in normal range. Yaaay. Also got a call from the vascular doctor's office who is going to check his legs. Going to have to re-schedule - it's 8:30 AM in Uptown Charlotte and if there's anywhere you DON'T want to be at 8-8:30 AM, it's trying to get to that area! LOL It's for the 24th of this month, they had an alternate date of May 3 but we'll be heading for Ohio then. We have until July till he goes back to the NP, so we'll just call tomorrow and see what else is available. Brenda said she'd take him, she's more familiar with Charlotte than we are.

Zone 2: Mission #4 Thursday

Your Mission for today is to declutter your plastic wraps and foil drawers, cabinets or shelves. We all have a spot that we keep these items and there is always one empty box in there and some lone baggies that are trying to escape. Toss the empty boxes, the rolls of plastic wraps that are too stuck together to work, and those strays that you are not sure if you should use them or not.

This is quick and easy! Have Fun!

Good Morning Friends.

We had light rain overnight and it's cloudy this morning, but supposed to clear off and be around 70.

Brenda's working this morning so I have the three kids till 1:00. Aspyn's down for a nap, Adalyn is laying on our bed watching her cartoons and Aiyden is playing with his magic tracks, so not too bad so far.

I think Andy's brother and SIL are heading south tomorrow, but they're going to the cousins' home first. At this point not sure if they'll actually be staying here at all this trip since now he has to be back for an eye appt. the 24th. We just go with the flow. Originally they wanted to be here 3 or 4 days before they went to TN but that didn't work out. We'll just wait till they get down here and see what develops.

Hope everyone has a great day!!

Good morning,
Bright sunshine!! I love it. I think it's going to get to 65 today and 70 tomorrow....then a cool down to the high 30's for a few days. Spring WILL come!! I'm keeping positive.
Merri, enjoy Golden Corral. I haven't been to one of those for years. We don't have one here, luckily (LOL), I've only been to one when I travel and again, not for years.
Joyce, so glad Brenda was with Andy and asked the questions. It does help that you feel more comfortable. You like your OH dr. so well that it's been hard to change. I certainly can understand that. I like my Dr. so much and he's already semi-retired. I hate to think of when I have to find someone new.
I'm volunteering this afternoon. Tomorrow I'm going to clean the house really good. I'm having people over on Sat. for a wine tasting party and want to have Friday to fix the food.
Everyone have a GREAT day!!

Good morning to all of my dear friends...Today is it 40 and yes, sunny again..They are saying we just might get to 60!!!

Joyce, I'm so glad to hear that Andy got good results from the dr. I guess I can understand what the dr means about all of us Medicare patients. I know it will only be about three yrs now when our primary dr retires...Than we will have to look for a new dr too...That was so nice tho that he explained things so well for Brenda.

Today Mr Ken wants to go to the Golden Corral. My buddy the one cook makes me my special fish that is steamed with nothing on top of it...No sauce I guess is what I mean...Than I get a sweet potato...alot of veggies. No soup at all tho...Way too much sodium....
