I had to vote on two items. Candy corn. As long as it's Brachs. No other brand will do. I can eat it but it always gives me a tummy ache!!!
I love Reese's PB cups but didn't vote there.
Lately I've been having a hard time with black licorice. Yum. Oh, and Jelly Bellys. My MIL called--they toured the Jelly Belly factory and she's bringing us many bags of the stuff. Yikes.
10-03-2007, 08:39 PM
Allison, have you had the popcorn flavored Jelly Belly? It smells just like buttered popcorn and has a taste like a popcorn ball! Yummy! I love black licorice too...
10-04-2007, 05:43 AM
I'm a candy corn lover. If I open a package, that's the end of it! I can't buy it.
I am officially fat! My pants are getting tighter. I just can't get on the wagon again, especially since I haven't been exercising much. Once my foot gets fixed, I am hoping to start doing more!
10-04-2007, 11:18 AM
Dad started getting much worse yesterday and it looks like the end may come soon for him. Ladies, my dad and our family could really use your prayers right now.
10-04-2007, 11:29 AM
Halloo all my lovely Floozies. Can I just say what a great group of ladies I think y'all are? I :love: being this group's moderator!
My day has been pretty great so far--I felt the baby MOVE for the first time (more than a flutter, but not quite a poke......kind of like running your finger across your palm) last night. He actually woke me up!! Hmmmm......I hope it was really him and not a dream or wishful thinking :)
This morning when I called to find my checking account balance I discovered that my manager nominated me for a $500 cash award, which showed up yesterday!! I had NO IDEA!! I love surprises like that!! (exclamation point! :lol: )
SUZY :hug: I am so sorry!!!!! I can't imagine what you must be feeling right now. I don't want to imagine it! Just remember that all of your Floozie sisters are here for you.
How come none of y'all have voted for the last option in the poll? Does this mean I'm not the only one with NO WILLPOWER? :o
10-04-2007, 12:25 PM
Suzy my heart and prayers goes out to you. I know that this must be very hard for you. I remember when mom was in the same situation a few years ago. You gut hurts so much and you can't stop thinking of what is going to happen. Hang in there, feel peace and know that we are praying for you, your dad and family.
Cheryl is that exciting. I remember the first time I felt life in me and I wondered if it was just gas.....lol Towards the end you will wish that Baby would just quiet down so you can sleep. They always seem more active when you are lying down.
Well it is later than usual I am still in my pj's and I want to go swim so I better get off my butt and get moving.
This weekend is our Thanksgiving. I am having the kids over for dinner saturday which will be very untraditional. We will be having seafood. On monday mom is having everyone over. MMMM pumpkin pie.....
10-04-2007, 10:20 PM
Suzy - prayers for you and your family. I know how terrible you must feel.
Happy Thanksgiving Dee.
10-04-2007, 11:24 PM
Suzy, prayers sent sweetie. If you need anything at all, you know where to find me. I hope your dad can find peace soon and that your family can find comfort in knowing once he is in Heaven, he will no longer will be suffering and he will be free of pain. God bless you and your family.
10-05-2007, 12:06 PM
This will be my last post for a little while! I'll be out of town next week. Mom and I are going to Branson. We're leaving on Tuesday and coming back on Saturday. I'm really looking forward to the time away/off work.
Suzy, I hope you're able to find the peace you need with your situation, whatever happens. Remember that we love you.
10-05-2007, 11:08 PM
Thank you all for your prayers...please keep them coming. The hospice nurse was in today and said that my dad's time left with us is short...probably days. I'm spending most of my time at my parents house and just coming home to sleep, but I'll do my best to keep you all posted about how things are going.
10-06-2007, 01:10 AM
Suzy, a prayer for your father. May I please know his first name so I can continue to pray for him?
Holy Spirit of God, Be present to all who are dying,
Sustain them by your power; Console them by your love.Even in their sufferings, will them with your joy.
When their eyes close to the things of this world, Grant that they may open them again on your unfailing light, and grant that, losing this world, they may gain all things resting in eternal possession of you. Amen.
10-06-2007, 02:36 PM
Suzy my prayers are with you and your family that you may find peace.
Janice Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your long weekend.
Gayle what a lovely prayer.
Cheryl I am glad that youare still able to get away. Enjoy your time with your mom.
What is with the green highlited words and underlined. I didn't do it. How about you Suzy did you do it. I think that it is kind of strange. Oh gee I just clicked on the words and there is a search. I don't know what that is all about. Do any of you see it?
Sheesh my crab is jumping out of the pot and heading for water in the toilet I better go catch that critter.
10-06-2007, 04:02 PM
I noticed the words too Dee. ??????
I was just thinking today how so many of us here are facing difficult times with our elderly parents. It's true Cheryl, enjoy the time you have with your mom. One day she won't be able to take vacations with you etc.
My mom is having some issues, we go to the doc Tuesday and we are also getting her setup with a medical lifeline this week at home. She keeps falling and I am suspecting she is blacking out for a few seconds and that is causing her fall. She is on walker duty per her daughters order and she is none to happy about it!! :-) this last time she fell backwards and hit her head on the edge of her concrete porch. :-(
Suzy, I am thinking of your family today...
10-06-2007, 04:03 PM
Oh Dee! I just re-read your post! I am shocked! Your a crab killer! YIKES! How could you do that to the poor little guy??? I hope he was able to make it to the toilet!
10-06-2007, 05:15 PM
Just popping in before we leave!
Suzy, my heart goes out to you sweetie.
Dee and Gayle, look here:
10-07-2007, 12:16 AM
I gave my family CRABS tonight.......lol
10-07-2007, 03:43 AM
Gayle, my dad's name is Al (Alvin). Yesterday (Saturday) was a bad day for him and mom and I spent most of the day at his bedside. I honestly don't know what is keeping him going. Today (Sunday) is my birthday, so maybe he is hanging on just to get past that? Actually, it was 35 years ago today that my mom came home from work and asked me if I minded if she went out on a date with a nice man who had asked her out for the evening. I was 10 years old and it was the first time my mom ever asked me permission to do anything, so I knew it had to have been important. I don't remember anything else about my birthday that year, I'm sure there must have been a party before my actual birthday, but I can't recall a particular present or special gift...I just remember that was the day that my mom went out with my dad for the first time. Looking back, I guess that was probably one of the greatest gifts I have ever received.
Gayle, my prayers are with your mom! I hope the doctor can figure out the cause for her falls. Lifeline is a wonderful tool...my dad and Tim's aunt both use it and it has come in handy several times. It's well worth the money!
Cheryl, have a wonderful time in Branson with your mom!
Dee, you can give me crabs anytime! :lol: YUM!
10-07-2007, 08:09 AM
Suzy-Happy Birthday! Many, many prayers to you and yours for your dad. I am so sorry I haven't been here sooner to send prayers. May God be with you and yours.
My co-worker's dad was thought to be on his death bed, and he had a complete turnaround and is now in rehab. Prayers do really help.
10-07-2007, 11:46 AM
Gayle and Suzy may God be with your mom and dad. I believe in prayers.
Thanks Cheryl for letting us know what is going on with the green underline words. I thought that it was kinda strange.
10-07-2007, 11:55 AM
:carrot: HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUZY :carrot:
You are surely blessed to have been able to have a wonderful relationship with your father.
10-07-2007, 03:06 PM
Happy birthday Suzy!!! I am a firm believer in that God brings special people into our lives for a reason. You were truly blessed to have a wonderful father over the past 35 years and your dad has been blessed too in having a wonderful daughter like you. He may just be waiting to get through today because it holds such sweet memories. Prayers continue to be sent.
10-09-2007, 08:03 AM
Suzy - prayers to you and your family. Happy Belated Birthday.
Gayle - what does your Mom's doctor say is causing her falls?
It is my daughters Birthday today (Tuesday) she is now 27.
She got engaged yesterday. Brian took her on a hike to the spot they went on there first hike ten years ago. He got down on his knee and proposed and then started to cry. Her ring is beautiful.
I ate too much turkey on Thanksgiving so need to get back on track.
Doug and I went to a pumpkinfest and stayed overnight Saturday. It was a very busy weekend.
10-10-2007, 02:33 AM
My dad passed away this morning (Tuesday) at 9:00 with my mom by his side. Travis isn't going to be able to come home for the funeral, but we knew that ahead of time. My brother is flying in on Thursday and will arrive just in time for the viewing...which is Thursday 6-8 and the funeral is Friday at 3:00. Thank you all again for all of your prayers and support...I'm not sure I could have made it through this without you!
10-10-2007, 06:05 AM
Suzy - I am sorry to hear your Dad passed away. Prayers are sent to you and your family at this very hard time. He is with God now and at peace.
10-10-2007, 08:39 AM
Oh, Suzy, I am so, so very sorry to hear your father has passed. I agree with Janice, he is at peace now and hopefully the family can find some peace in knowing that. A big hug goes out to you today (I'm sorry I can't be there to give you a real one) Prayers are with you and your family.
10-10-2007, 05:53 PM
Suzy I am sorry to hear of your lose. My prayers are for you and your family. It is too bad that Travis can't make it back home. Sending my love, prayers and a big hug.
Janice what a wonderful future son in law. He is a romantic. When are they planning on getting married?
Gayle how are the wedding plans coming along? Is it stressful?
Cheryl are you home yet? I hope that you had a awesome time with your mom.
I have to get my eatting under control. I have been the sugar monster the last month. I started to journal again this week. That really helps me. I am feeling better already.
Shelley do you eat all of your exercise points? I count 1 point for 10 minutes of vigorous exercise and 1 point for 20 minutes of moderate. Is that how you do it? The lady at ww's said to me I was lucky that I didn't gain weight doing that. I thought that was the way it was on plan. What do you think?
10-11-2007, 05:44 AM
Suzy-My heart goes out to you on your dad's passing.
Dee-Yes, I do eat my exercise points, and so do many other people that exercise vigorously. Of course, lately I haven't had any to eat. Some people have to do it to lose weight. I'm surprised your WW leader doesn't know that.
I am so sorry that we are now considered a "misc. club." It's hard to locate us anymore!
10-11-2007, 07:59 AM
It's official, we have dwindled down to being a misc. club... :-(
I agree Shelley. Sad day here in weightlossville.
Suzy, thoughts and prayers sent today sweetie.
10-11-2007, 08:01 AM
Dee- I know what you mean about the sugar monster. I was so good for weeks and then on Thanksgiving I have been eating way too much. Amanda's Birthday Tuesday - of course I had to have cake. I need to clear the sugar out of my system and get back on track.
Not fair that we are now Miscellaneous!
Suzy - prayers to you and your family.
10-11-2007, 01:44 PM
Thank goodness I found you all! I panicked this morning and thought our group had been cancelled...certainly not what I needed to see right now!
Thank you all for the prayers, thoughts and kind words. We are all holding up pretty well here and I'm sure things will start getting better once we get through tonight and tomorrow.
10-11-2007, 05:52 PM
Gee it is tough to find you. It is sad that we are just a small number of girls now. All our lost souls will never find us now.
Suzy may God be with you especially the next few days. Sending my love. I know that this is a very difficult time.
Today was court day. Larry was able to go for me. What a relief. The judge was none to lenient. The fine was $410. What gets me is Larry said that a women didn't confine her dog and he bit someone didn't have a liscence and she only got a $100 fine because she was a single mom. I don't give a hoot but her dog bite someone. I can't even begin to compare it to not having a liscence. How stupid!
10-11-2007, 08:07 PM
Suzy, thinking of you today and sending love and prayers.
Glad I found everyone, I was wondering what was going on, when I clicked on today!
10-12-2007, 05:49 AM
We need to try and post everyday to keep our Floozies alive and well.
Dee-I must have missed something. Why were you going to court?
Debbi-Glad you found us!
I want to :welcome: you to the Miscellaneous Clubs. If there is anything you need, please let Marti or me know, and as your moderators, we'll do whatever we can to help.
Note to Suzy - although I don't know you at all, I, too, lost my dad, so I know just how you feel, and my heart goes out to you. :hug:
10-12-2007, 10:56 AM
Hi Jane! Thank you for stopping in to say hello!
10-12-2007, 11:02 AM
New thread started! See ya on #31 :hug:
