Thanks!

Something good? I have been decluttering every day for a while now and throw at least one thing away every day and usually a lot more.

I'm sure your son was very happy to have him there. I am using up all of the food in the fridges and freezers as I want to avoid waste.

My daughter has been told to wear a plain black collared blouse for a school concert. The manufacturers of clothing for 12 year old girls do not seem to favor black much, unless accompanied by slogans or sparkles! Also I don't like to spend a lot on costumes or clothing for school events unless it will be worn a lot. So I was happy to find a suitable blouse in a charity shop (thrift store). It's a small ladies size but it fits her. I love a bargain!

I'm gearing up for the Pride festival tomorrow! emoticon Let's see....I want to be sure to bring water, sunglasses, a hat, water, sunscreen, water, water, and more water. emoticon It's going to be a scorcher and I want to be prepared.

I love the Pride festival! As an ally, I celebrate the one day each year when the LGBTQ community can be out in public and hold hands or just plain be themselves! I love going because I feel free to be myself, no matter my size or shape. There's no judgment there, not one bit. emoticon

Love handles, MEH, it's the first place I put it on and the last I take it off. But I have faith this time, I will lose them!

Tally,

Never say never about things. I too thought my "love handles" would never disappear, but with the tons of strength training I've been doing the last three months in physical therapy and continue to do daily since PT has finished, it worked very well to make them disappear. Much of what I did in PT was core strengthening in and out of the pool. If you are interested in what kinds of core exercises I did I can list the names of them for you. Believe me when I say I haven't lose a pound in several months, but I look so so much better. I am starting to have curves! Lol.

The nice thing for today is I'm sore! Yes, I'm sore from yesterdays exercise on the mini-trampoline. I just started using it. My legs are sore. I think I need to get some 2 lb weights for my arms. My arms are jealous! Lol

AAAACK, so happy you and your son had such a good day. Major League Baseball does seem to be a good supporter of youth groups. Glad you and your son attended.

The highlight of my day was going to the park with my daughter and 3-year old granddaughter! My granddaughter squealed with delight the whole time. It's easy to forget about the cares of the world when with her.

Major League Baseball did something wonderful and kind today. They hosted a Special Stars game for my son's special needs baseball league and another league. 10 players from each league were selected to play (just like an All Stars game), and each kid got to bring 2 spectators (parents in our case). They treated us like we mattered. They closed the Padres Petco Park to the public, and staffed the place for just us. They treated us to executive parking, and fed us dinner afterward. They set up a mini-field in the outfield of the major league field (our home plate was in line with first base), and had announcers, jumbotron coverage, lots of camera-men, 3 mascots, music, and even a highlights reel at the end. They had so much staff there to make sure we were safe and happy, and never charged us a cent for anything. They made custom jerseys for our game, each kid got his name on his back, MLB quality jerseys, too! Caps (actually 2 caps because they gave goodie bags to our kids at the end, which had lots of things in there including a 2nd cap).

But I just had to come by and tell you guys about it. It's been a rough week with absolutely stomach-churning reprehensible acts of violence, and I just wanted to share something positive. A sense of hope that there are still good people out there, doing good things. And I feel lucky to have been a recipient of something uplifting like this.

What can I do for myself today?

We had sour cherry trees on our property, and every summer we had the joy of picking the cherries that the birds hadn't gotten into. Then we had to pit them. It stains your hands brown from pitting them. Then Mom would bake a cherry pie or she'd freeze them for future pies.

Yum.

We just ate some of our first sweet cherries of the season today. The Flathead Lake area of our state has many orchards, and we look forward each year to having the cherries again. Hope everyone here is enjoying the fruits and vegetables that are in season in your area.

Tally -- I figured that I had spent enough that day with the $114.65 parking fine that an $8.50 refund would help to ease the pain. And it does help. Every little bit helps!

LILLYROSEGRAM -- I don't have children, either, and I'm so glad you have the experience of watching them grow up into adulthood. Very, very cool.

Sparkle, it's super that you thought to ask for a refund. So many (including me?) would just write it off as a loss, just grateful to be safely home after such a harrowing day.

LILLYROSEGRAM, I imagine it is wonderful to watch children grow into the hopes and dreams you had for them when they were babies. I don't have any children...I'll never share in that.

Great job in getting the refund, SPARKL3SUSAN! You're right, you don't get if you don't ask.

I am enjoying seeing my daughter, who is early adulthood, mature and become increasingly responsible. So nice and takes a load off my mind!

I got my $8.50 refunded for the prepaid parking space in a parking garage that was blocked off from traffic on Saturday! I emailed them on Sunday to request the refund. You don't get a refund if you don't ask, right? Three cheers for assertiveness!! emoticon

Got tons of exercise today! So much that I'm pooped.
TALLYFL - great news about Pepper eating and coming home for a snuggly weekend.
Chris - you'll work it all out! And one day it'll be behind you.
LPORTER2015 - that's all we can ask for, right? Another shot at getting it right, whether it be the next day, next hour, or next moment.

What can I do for myself today?

We decided to bring her home rather than leave her at the vet's all weekend. They close at 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays an no one is there anyway other than techs who come in to feed, clean cages & walk the animals. Decided she may as well be home with her pack, for good or bad.

The entire gang goes in Monday for kenneling.

So glad to hear that TALLYFL! It sounds as though Pepper is beginning to feel better. I guess it just takes our older pets a little longer to recover from illness. Hope she continues to improve.

Pepper ate some food this morning (according to the vet). They will be keeping her until we return from our getaway next week. Fingers crossed that she continues to eat and will be able to come back home to us.

We've accepted that we aren't going to get a cherry tomato harvest - DH and I keep popping one or two for a "snack" each time we take the dogs out! I've even seen our older male sneaking around to pick from the "low-hanging fruit.". emoticon

Haven't bought tomatoes from the store for a couple of weeks as the potted nursery stock is producing. My grown from seed are also starting to ripen so tomatoes will soon be on the menu with some regularity. Bell peppers are also doing nicely. emoticon

I can hardly type this as the ads are slowing my computer down so badly that it's "missing" about 4 out of every 5 letters I type and I keep having to either slow down until it catches up or back up and fill in the missing letters. emoticon

My annual eye exam went well. No problems and only a slight change to my prescription. Not enough to warrant new glasses when the ones I have are still in good condition. I'm trying not to spend $$$ needlessly.

Better hold off on the "Grace" title.

I had a glimpse of the Sabre set, which I'm planning to take a workshop in at the end of the month. Two left feet, as they say. I was always in the wrong place, on the wrong foot, etc.! A great reminder of how it will feel to my new students this week, trying something completely different than anything they have done before!

My Friday Night was awesome!

My son brought a love seat home for summer storage. He drove his gf SUV. He brought his gf and their friend. He organized the shed while they played with his toys like scooters. That took an hour. He makes me laugh. Then the girls wanted to see were he will work one of his part time jobs. They just remodeled. It is like many stories in one..huge tourist love-eatery, huge gas station full of everything, plus clothes,gifts, shoes, and sports, etc. We spent one hour in there. He will be on tills not stocking the cold beers, sodas, etc this year. They have added since we were there at Easter even! Grand Opening will be soon! It was a fun 2 hours!

Minnie took the words right out of my mouth, so I'll have to say the same thing in a different way, ha ha.

Elizabeth, should we start calling you Grace?
Becky, great job enjoying your sunny day!
Gods Princess, nice to see you down here on the conversation threads! I hope you had a nice weekend, too.

What can I do for myself today?

I have a slight sunburn on my nose-- this is a good thing, I promise. It means I got to spend time outside today! emoticon

All I really want is to spend my life traveling the world, reading books that take my breath away and drinking all kinds of coffee.

Good open house at the Tai Chi Center today. I know I have some "returning" beginning students for my first teaching assignment - I wonder how many new ones? I know one for sure and she has Parkinson's so balance and strength issues. I hope I can help!

I've been a substitute teacher a couple of times. The students tell me I am a good teacher but now I will truly be put to the test. They also say I am graceful, which I cannot possibly imagine. ME??! It's a mighty fine complement!

I finally found a frozen spring roll that tastes delicious, making another yummy veggie snack. Ling Ling brand.

What can I do for myself today?

Sounds like it'sbeen an anxious time for your Mom and your family OSINIYE. I'm glad she is settling in to her new home!

Lisa, you know it's been a tough time when you're getting excited about leaving the house LOL. Hope things are picking up for you now and you are getting back to full health again!
