good morning chicks.

I'm going to try finishing up the hoarder room. We had a touch of rain last night for about 5 minutes.

Rhonda, I'm so glad you got your piano. My mom's side of the family was very instrumental. My grandpa played organ in nightclubs in Detroit and all her brothers played piano, drums, guitar. You name it, they could play. Everyone except my mom. I used to have an organ and could play a little on it. With lessons, I know I could have done well.

Stay cool chicks.

07-02-2012, 11:22 AM
Pam, thanks for the new pages. It's never too late to take lessons. You're inspiring me; I might do some cleaning and sorting today.

I'm waiting for DH to return from the doctor where they are taking blood for routine tests--we're going out for breakfast.

I'm watching the Science Guy, Bill Nye, talking about climate change. It's hot, in case you haven't noticed. How/why we continue to ignore this politically is beyond me. Of the past 17 years, we have had record high temperatures for 16 of them.

I hope you all have a great day!

07-02-2012, 03:14 PM
but Rhonda, there is no such thing as global warming, don't ya know......This weather is so crazy. What happened to nice summers? It's so hot you can't even go out to enjoy it. It suffocates me every time I go out.

07-02-2012, 06:01 PM
Yeah, Pam, I know. I live in Texas, the home of ignorance and denial. Otherwise, it's a great place to be :lol:

I just got the news that a friend of mine has a rare form of non-Hogdkins lymphoma, on top of scleroderma. This is very bad, very. His wife has been a close friend of mine since the mid 1980's. She was a very strong support when my husband died. I wish I were physically closer to them; they're in Canada.

We are leaving soon to go to DH's daughter's house for dinner. I had fun at the gym, even though I can't do a lot. Trainer says to just "chill"--it will take a while to get ankle back and I will lose strength, but it will come back with work. Of course, work!

Hi Ladies:)

Looks like I need a new refrigerator. The only thing I don't know where to buy it sears or cranes appliances?????????. Sears has my color scheme but I have to pay for delivery and removable of the old one,Crane's has the same policy but they don't have the color scheme or the brand. TG my neighbor helped me measure the cubic ft.

Going to cancel my appointment with the repair man and just buy a new one as my refrig is 12 years old,and its not going to last that long either.

Sorry for being MIA for 1 1/2 days.Yesterday I went to the movies with my to see "People Like Us" it was good,but a little sentimental for me.Oh things have changed since the last paragraph,I'm so confused so Today I went to cranes to see what kinds of refrigs they got but they were too expensive for me and they didn't have my color or the left door opening. So I'm having my handy man come over when he cuts my hedges to look at it before I have the repair man come over. If my handy man thinks I need a new refrigerator I will cancel the repairmen save $75 and get one from Sears.

Otherwise nothing is new,I'm going out with Rita on Wed July 4th and celebrate the over in Woods Hole,she thinks the MV will be too crowded for us.So we will stay on the Cape instead. Mary & my friend Pat are doing something with there children.

PAM-Thanks for the new pages. I had one of those room also,until I heard mys sister was paying a visit so now my spare room is cleaned.Hoped it stays that way.

RHONDA-All I can say is to stay COOL and dehydrated in this hot heat.

Have to go have a great evening

Hi everyone!

Sandra- my best friend just moved from Montana 3 1/2 years ago. Bozeman or Miles City (I can't remember). My neighbor for the past 12+ years and her are high school sweethearts who reconnected via facebook.

Sloan- I'm glad you were able to visit with your family. To bad it wasn't under better circumstances.

Nancy- I'm also glad that you are having fun with your son! Enjoy!

Mary ann- I hate that your refrigerator died. It seems like all appliances are disposable now a days. Good luck with getting a new one that will last a long time.

Rhonda- Sorry about your friend's health. Hopefully you will be able to be there for them even if not in person.

Pam- I hope your hoarder room was finished. LOL, I guess we all have an area we throw our junk into. Mine is my bedroom. I need to move my junk into my closet. Then I could really ignore it :o

I just ate a taco salad. Definitely not all core but very good. Plus two beers with lime. My first splurge of my diet. Now I am trying to work up the motivation to mow my lawn and work off some calories.

This week is going to be a little tough for me. Wednesday I am going to Jimmy Buffet's new casino Margaritaville in Biloxi to eat and then girls' night on Friday. I will try and do as well as I can!

Y'all have a great evening! :)

07-02-2012, 10:01 PM
Maryann, some weeks are more challenging. I'm worried about this week, too. We just have to do what we can and try to keep in control. Curtis moved to Montana in the 70's. We met via a personal ad in a Ft. Worth paper back in 96. We lived in Missoula. Missoula's on the western side of MT about halfway between Yellowstone and Glacier. Beautiful country! We're hoping to revisit next summer if all goes as planned.

Rhonda, I'm sorry about your friend. Will you be able to visit them soon? I hope so.

Maryann, glad you got to go to the movies. Sorry about your fridge. Seems it's always something, doesn't it?

Pam, thank you for the new pages. That's interesting about your family. One of our granddaughters plays the trumpet, piano, violin, and cello as well as sings. I don't have a musical talent at all. I can't even hum.

Took our youngest grand swimming today. One of the reasons I go is for exercise to help me lose weight. Why did I buy a Snickers Ice Cream afterwards?

Ya'll keep cool. I'll see ya tomorrow.

07-02-2012, 11:39 PM
Okay girls ...Top Secret !!! :sssh: Not a word to anyone...:nono:

An old college friend just facebooked me ..I don't think he is married from his pictures on facebook (widowed?? divorced??)
I liked this guy alot & we were good friends and we could have had something but we went separate ways & both got involved..What I am trying to say is that there was something there way back ..I am catching myself thinking "what if"

Through the years , he is the one I have always thought I shouldn't have let get away...

07-02-2012, 11:56 PM
Nancy, your secret is safe with me. I think this is exciting news. Makes me smile.

07-03-2012, 12:06 AM
We won't tell a soul, Nancy. Go for it! Find out what is there.

07-03-2012, 12:08 AM
hope this site isn't connected to facebook :yikes:

07-03-2012, 02:04 AM
Awesome, Nancy! You go girl!!!

07-03-2012, 03:59 AM
It's 2AM and I can't sleep. I just took some pain medication. I'm really tired of this ankle hurting. I guess I pushed it too hard today.

I read something about people who can't sleep because their minds won't "turn off." That's mine at times. The advice was to cool your head and someone has invented a cap with circulating cool water--it seems to help. I think I'll pass though. Maybe I should put the ice pack on my forehead like I have a hangover :lol:

07-03-2012, 04:49 AM
I can't sleep either..
It's 3:37.

Rhonda, sometimes when my mind is going I can try not let it "settle" on anything. I force it to jump quickly ..
If I keep it from landing on a problem or situation I can fall asleep better.

Obviously not working for me tonight :D

07-03-2012, 09:06 AM
good morning chicks.

I'm sure all the insomniacs are sound asleep.

Nancy, your secret is safe with us. Keep us posted.

Jackie, have fun in Biloxi. I think Jimmy Buffet opened a new casino in Vegas too.

Maryann, sorry you need a new fridge. I would think they should last more than 12 years. Back in the good old days, they lasted 25 yrs or more.

Sandra, hope you enjoyed that snickers bar. Yum.

sloan, sorry about your family loss.

I made good progress on the room yesterday. I want to paint and can't decide on color.

07-03-2012, 09:58 AM
Pam, you've inspired me, too! I have a "hoarders" room, and I worked in it some yesterday. DS is starting a new job next week, so he is home and helped me move some heavy stuff. My goal is to have it organized by Saturday afternoon!

Mornin' chickies!

07-03-2012, 12:17 PM
Mornin', Sloan. I've got to have my done by Thursday night. I'm not doing it all though.

I fell asleep, woke up at 5:30 waiting for the dog to disturb me and fell asleep again. When I got up at 9:45 both she and DH were sleeping...she had not been fed or out. I guess she tried to wake me and I just slept. She doesn't seem any worse for wear.

I've got a morning of chores, then this afternoon I'm doing some volunteer work and shopping.

07-03-2012, 01:07 PM
I had a good cry last night then slept like a baby. Don't know if that's the trick or whether I'd even recommend it, though. Today we're going to the doctor to find out if Curtis will need his artificial shoulders replaced. I went to WW this am and was up .8 pound. Everybody there got on my nerves. Well, not everybody but several. I know it was because I had gained and because I'm nervous for Curtis. Life goes on. And I changed my tracker.

I hope all of you sleep better tonight. I hate those sleepless nights.

You all sound like you are being productive. That's good. Enjoy the afternoon. I should be back here this evening some time to check up on you.

Hi Ladies:)

Thanks for your input on my fridge I'm going out to Sears, and getting a Kenmore,if the one I have needs to be put to sleep. Spoke to my handyman and he told me to go to sears and see what the repair man says. So I'm making an appointment with the sears repair man he's coming on Thursday to see if it just a clogged hose,if not I will get a new one.

NANCY- Be careful of face book-I don't trust that site,too many things happening there. A friend was hacked from there several years ago. Good luck in your new adventures.

JACKIE-Thanks,My handyman told me to have the repairman come to the house so I didn't cancel the appointment. I'll see if he can fix it,for a reasonable price if not I will go to sears and purchase a new one.

SANDRA-Hope you challenging week goes smoothly for you. Yes we enjoyed the movie,and tomorrow I'm going down to Woods Hole with Rita for the 4th,hope it won't be too crowded for us.We both decided not to go by car but to get the bus at the Walmart Mall.

PAM-You can say that again,I remember when I was first married the appliance lasted forever now at day your lucky to have last at all.

Have to start dinner have a great day

07-03-2012, 06:51 PM
Maryann, I say buy a new one. It broke down before??? All the money you are paying to repairmen, you could buy a new one and not have to worry about it. It should outlast you, hopefully.

Sandra, why did you cry yourself to sleep? Hope Curtis got good news. Hey, .08 is not quite a pound, so don't worry about it. It was probably that darn snickers bar, lol. Some days everyone gets on my nerves too. You are probably just worried about your man.

Making chicken stir fry

07-03-2012, 08:23 PM
Pam, I was having a low moment worrying about Curtis. Today I was feeling more optimistic. I got over the bad mood I had at WW. Thank goodness! I don't think anyone would want to be around me otherwise.

Maryann, good luck with your fridge.

Nancy, I am still excited for you. I agree with Rhonda that you should give it a chance and see what happens.

Now as to Curtis--Today we got what's probably the best news possible. He's to go to his cardiologist next Wed to get clearance for shoulder surgery. If he gets the clearance, he's getting a new rotator cuff for his right shoulder Monday, July 16. That's quick, isn't it?

His left shoulder replacement looks a little frayed, but Dr. Milne thinks it should be all right without a redo. That's our good news.

Recovery will take about 3 months. He's outside now shooting his bow. He wants to go fishing Friday. I'm thinking Whitney may be too crowded for good fishing, but we'll prob go anyway. If we don't go Fri for some reason, I'm cancelling Monday swim and we'll go then. This will be his last chance for weeks (months).

Tomorrow is our next gathering. I have my cake in the fridge chilling. I'll top it later. I'm making another WW Dreamsicle Cake. Life is good. Have a good evening, all.

07-03-2012, 11:23 PM
Darn..I guessed wrong..He is married ..
I am glad for him that he is though...We are going to grab lunch Thursday & catch up...Still excited to see an old friend after so long..

Trying to decide whether to go to Concert & Fireworks tomorrow with my cousin. Its going to be 97 and there is a forecast of severe thunderstorms..

Sloan..I found really good gluten free crackers today. They are made by Blue Diamond and called Nut Thins..They had them at Target and had lots of flavors.
I got the "hint of sea salt " almond ones..Now I can have hummus & crackers :carrot:

07-03-2012, 11:24 PM
Poor Curtis. I know it's good news, but it's still surgery and rehab. He (and you) have all my sympathy.

i took my great niece to church tonight to help decorate the float and tomorrow we'll be in the July 4th parade. I took her out for ice cream too at our REAL ice cream parlor downtown and we had fun. She likes to hang out with me, most of the time :lol:

I didn't have much ice cream...just 4 ounces. My eating has been good today.

07-03-2012, 11:26 PM
Rats, Nancy! Oh well, have fun. I see an old boyfriend for lunch every now and again, and he's married too. It's fun.

I buy Nut Thins here and have them with hummus also...very crunchy and tasty.

07-03-2012, 11:40 PM
Sandra, that is fast. Hope it all works out. I thought maybe you were worried and that is what put you in a foul mood. My sister had surgery on both her shoulders. I'm sure he will feel much better after he rehabilitates.

Nancy, darn. Is his wife coming to lunch?

Rhonda, ice cream sounds good. I want chocolate with almonds.

My stir fry turned out really good. I have a lot left over so I'll finish it up the next couple days. I had it over bulgur instead of rice.

07-04-2012, 01:21 AM
Sandra..I missed your post about the dr appt results...That is fast..I don't blame him for doing some things before the surgery..

Pam ..I need to learn to do a good stirfry.I make a really good Shrimp Fried Rice but it's not core.. Not sure if she is coming but we used to all go out in my 30's and she is lovely ...I will have them over for dinner soon..

07-04-2012, 10:10 AM
Happy Fourth Chicks!

I'm not feeling well and I have a BBQ go to. Will see how I feel later. It feels like food poisoning or a bug.

07-04-2012, 10:57 AM

We're up and have been watching MaMa Rabbit and Spot. Our gathering for the 4th isn't until 5 pm, so we'll have a laid back day till then. Hope all of you are enjoying the 4th. Vickie, I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I hope you're better in time to enjoy the 4th.

LOOKS LIKE WE ARE GOING TO HAVE RAIN THROWN ON OUR CELEBRATION TODAY,but Rita are I are still going down to Wood Hole for our part. We're going via bus that we pick up at the Walmart Plaza. I really wanted to go to MV but Rita thinks it going to be too crowded and now they are predicting thunderstorms so its not a good idea to be on the water that that time.

THANKS LADIES-I'm first going to get the repairman in as advice by my handy man and than I'll go from there,if its too expensive to fix than I'll go to Sears and buy a cream color fridge as all my appliances in my kitchen are cream. Only Sears has that color.

Have to go and met my friend Rita


07-04-2012, 12:03 PM

Its the only fireworks I could find so ignore the welcome part..
Or it could be "Welcome, July 4th !!"

I was planning to go to a concert & fireworks this afternoon but we have severe
weather forecast this afternoon and I guess I am not up for crowds & heat & storms...

I am meeting a friend for shopping & then may paint my bathroom ..It's the one I redid last year but never painted..

Vickie...feel better..What have you been eating ???

07-04-2012, 02:48 PM
Nancy, that's clever. I looked and didn't find a 4th one either. I like what you chose. Very festive.

Maryann, enjoy your day.

Just got home from the store loaded with apples and oranges. Going to cut down on bananas. My monkey days are on pause. :lol:

07-04-2012, 06:41 PM
The parade was fun and we made quite a display, especially considering it was our first time in the parade. I handed my great-niece over to her parents, then picked up DH for breakfast out. Then I had a nap, and I might have another one.

It's a quiet day, even with the parade. And, that's fine with me.

I will have my great niece for part of the day, and I need to find something good to do. Anyone have any movie recommendations for an 8 year old?

I hope you're all having a good day.

07-04-2012, 07:01 PM
"Brave" or "Madagasgar II"

It's almost time for us to go to the fish fry. Should be fun and we'll get to see some friends we haven't seen in awhile.

Good Morning Ladies:)

Not only is my fridge not working correctly but now my car is having the check engine light come on telling me some it wrong.I call Toyota dealing and they told me not to worry if the car is operating otherwise ok. He told me it was the omission s I made an appointment on Monday at 9AM for that problem and getting an inspection. Does it ever end,what else will happen as this is #2.

NANCY-Happy that you went out yesterday and had a great time. Rita and I went down to WH by the 11:30 AM bus,where there was a parade of all scientific areas,after that we went to lunch at Landfall,stayed there until 2:30 and then we walked around town,had ice cream and come back on the 5PM bus. I saw the Boston Pops and fireworks on tv.

SANDRA-Thanks we had a great time,but we were surprised to see our town of Falmouth and woods hole empty where did the tourist go. We go into a very busy restaurant with out any trouble as it was empty.

RHONDA-I second Sandra my friend Mary took her g-son to both of them.

Have a great day

07-05-2012, 01:24 PM
Good Morning Chicks! Gotta go shower to get out of the way of the cleaning lady.

I definitely have a bug or bad effects from the heat. Stomach is still off. Date night has definitely been postponed. Heat wave is expected to last until Saturday here.

Hope you are all safe, happy, and on program.

07-05-2012, 06:46 PM
Hi there. We're simmering meatballs waiting to go to our 3rd gathering this week. Can you see my butterfly wings? I feel like a social butterfly. :lol:

Vickie, I hope you're on the mend and are feeling much much better. This heat is something. I imagine your heat is stifling due to humidity. When we were in Hamilton, OH a couple years back, we nearly overheated during National Target Championship. (And I had worn black. Not good!)

Maryann, sorry about your car and fridge. Seems it's always something, doesn't it?

I prob won't be going swimming the next 2 Mondays at least. I'm already missing being out in the sun. My tan is fading.

Keep cool. I'll catch ya later.

07-05-2012, 11:31 PM
Met my friend at 1 and we ate & walked & talked at the Mall and the next thing I knew it was 5:30. It was just like old times and we both couldn't beleive we
let ourselves get out of touch..

Getting my hair highlighted tomorrow and then going to spend the weekend with a childhood friend. Trying to get some visiting done before I start job hunting. I have an autistic nephew (on Robin's side) that wants to come visit this summer for a week. He is 18 and I am a bit nervous about how things would go, but I think we all want to give it a try.. May do that at the end of July. My step daughter that lives near me will help out..

Feel Better Vickie !!! are right it all comes at one time doesn't it..Hoping your car a simple fix.

Rhonda..which movie did you pick ?? My grandson enjoyed A Dolphin Tale . It may be out at Redbox now if you have Redbox there. Sweet true story about a dolphin's recovery from an injury.

07-05-2012, 11:39 PM
My great niece slept in and I didn't pick her up until almost noon. We did two errands I had to do. We went shopping for what is called the "Apple Project"....buying school clothes for needy children. I bought her a few things also. We took DH out for Mexican food and she ate so much I was astounded :lol: Then, I took her to art class, then home. We had fun and will do it again soon.

I have surgery on my foot in the morning, so I'll write when I recover from the grogginess...will be glad to get it over.

New 'fridges, new/old friends, social folks are busy! Glad to hear you're having fun. Stay cool Vickie!

07-06-2012, 12:42 AM
Rhonda, I'll be thinking about you in the morning. I'm wishing you the best and speediest of recoveries.

Nancy, you sound happy. That's wonderful!

07-06-2012, 06:57 AM
Praying for a quick recovery for you, Rhonda!

07-06-2012, 10:46 AM
Good Morning Chicks!

Happy Friday. Still sick. Thanks for the good thoughts.

Rhonda, good luck tomorrow. I'm praying for a complete and quick recovery. Any chance Doyle can update Sandra so we know how you did?

07-06-2012, 11:06 AM
I'll call Doyle later today, Vickie, and will give a full report.

07-06-2012, 11:24 AM
Oh's today and I didn't get to wish her luck beforehand. Good thing you were all here to wish her well.

07-06-2012, 12:33 PM
Hey thanks for all the good wishes. I'm home and feel fine, if a little groggy. The doc said the toe was really beat up and he couldn't figure out what I had done to it. We will talk more on Monday. The service at the out-patient hospital was just great. Warmed-up blankets!

DH has gone to get me pancakes and coffee for breakfast. I'm going to eat them most likely fall asleep!

07-06-2012, 01:29 PM
Rhonda, so happy to hear you are home and in the mood for pancakes!

I'd die right now if anyone tried to put a warmed up blanket on me. It's over 100!

07-06-2012, 02:37 PM
Rhonda, so glad you're home enjoying pancakes and a nap. I'll call later this afternoon to check on you. Love you.

Vickie, it's hot down here, too, but those medical places are like freezers. I'm thinking of taking a wrap when Curtis has his surgery. :lol:

07-06-2012, 04:14 PM
First nap down, and I'm sending Doyle for the pain meds :lol: The second nap can't be far away.

Do take a wrap Sandra...the AC works very well in those waiting rooms and surgical theaters.

07-06-2012, 09:08 PM
Rhonda, glad your surgery went well and you seem to be in good spirits. Yes, they keep those places really cold to cut back on germs, I'm told. Pancakes sound wonderful.

Hey to all the chicks.

07-06-2012, 09:37 PM
Got to talk to Rhonda and Doyle today. She sounds really good and is in good spirits.

I saw Spot (bunny) this afternoon! I was so worried about him since we saw a huge snake slither into his "brier patch" yesterday. The snake may still be there. We couldn't get it out.

I am back OP today after my hiatus yesterday. (Hope I stay OP. I've been "shaky" lately)

07-06-2012, 10:29 PM
Rhonda, I'm so glad that things went well for you! Now it's time to rest and let Doyle take care of you :)

Sandra, hang in there! At least you have only been shaky; I have been way, way off! I agree with taking a wrap with you to the hospital; fruit and ww snacks would be good also!

Vickie, sorry about your heat wave. We have been over 100 for several days now.

Nancy, sounds like you had a great visit!

Hey to the rest of y'all!

07-06-2012, 11:02 PM
Doyle has been great. I'm taking my second pain pill and heading to bed. :yawn:

I think I told you about the heron in the driveway yesterday. He was back this afternoon, this time in the backyard at the time Sandra and I were on the phone. I couldn't see him from where I was sitting, but Doyle did.

'night all...

07-07-2012, 12:09 AM
Sloan, I am going to take some WW snacks and a wrap. Good ideas.

We're watching "Cheyenne Autumn." Good movie with lots of good stars. (1964)

07-07-2012, 01:17 AM glad you are doing okay..Glad Doyle is spoiling you some..

I got my hair colored & highlighted today & I like it..
letting it get a bit longer than the usually chin length..

07-07-2012, 10:46 AM
Good Morning Chicks!

Today I'm taking my shaky stomach and smiling face to have late lunch with some friends from high school. No way I'm canceling that date! They make me laugh. Not sure what I'll eat but that's not the most important aspect of today now is it?!

Rhonda, how you have an easy recovery.

Light and love to the rest of you. This is supposed to be the last day of our heat wave but we'll see. It would be nice to be down in our regular mid to high 80 temperatures.

07-07-2012, 10:53 AM
Morning chicks.

Rhonda, hope you had a good night and the pain meds worked.

Sandra, that is cute you named your bunny. Spot, oh my, hope he doesn't think he is a dog, :)

Nancy, I used to always highlight my hair. I keep mine short and need a trim soon. I need one about every 5 wks.

I'm leaving soon to go shopping with my daughter. She has one client this morning and then we are heading to TN.

My husband has been gone since last Sat (helping with his mom while other sister goes on vacation). I thought for sure I had gained a few lbs. But, since I've been at work cleaning the hoarders room, guess I wasn't eating as much as I thought. Still the same.

Hey to Vickie and sloan. Gotta go.

07-07-2012, 11:45 AM
Workin' in my "hoarders room" today :)

07-07-2012, 12:41 PM
Sleeping in my recliner today. The night wasn't too bad. In fact, I had much worse nights with the sprained ankle. In the main, surgical injuries are better than crude ones :lol:

DH got up early with the dog, helped me relocate from bed to recliner, prepared my breakfast, organized a nice fruit and nut tray for me, brought me my books, computer and crossword puzzle book and went back to bed. He said he slept better last night than he had in a long time---I must have worked him really hard yesterday.

Good Morning Ladies:)

Its going to be HOT today ,have the a/c rumbling and will not go out again this morning,other than church.

Got on the scale this morning and I maintained,even though Rita & I ate alot over the holiday.

Looks like my friend Mary and I will have to find another theater to see our movies in, the cinema pub doesn't seem to be on my web site anymore.At least goggle doesn't have them listed. Oh Well !!!

Sorry I was MIA yesterday, was out of the house for must of the day.

I definitely have a bug or bad effects from the heat. Stomach is still off. Date night has definitely been postponed. Heat wave is expected to last until Saturday here.

VICKIE-Sorry :sorry: about date night having to be postponed,This heat is effecting a lot of people. I'm not going out today anymore except for church this morning. All I can suggest to to have some kind of ginger product for your ailing stomach[ginger ale, herb ginger tea, or candied ginger.] have all three in my cabinet just in case it happens to me.

Maryann, sorry about your car and fridge. Seems it's always something, doesn't it?

SANDRA-Thanks, the fridge is now fixed and now for the car,don't think is anything major but it has to be fixed before I can get my car inspected. So far so good,even though things do come in 3. are right it all comes at one time doesn't it..Hoping your car a simple fix.

NANCY-According to the mechanic on the phone it should be miner as he told me it has to bean emission control system that causing the idiot light to come on. I have to have my hair cut also,with this hot weather can't stand having it hand over my neck.

I have surgery on my foot in the morning, so I'll write when I recover from the grogginess...will be glad to get it over.

RHONDA-Hope the surgery went well, So sorry to hear you had to have foot surgery. I must have missed a post or two as I didn't know. Now I see it was your toe,I have a toe with dried blood under it when I fell on my vacation to Europe. Have to make an appointment with my foot doctor.

PAM-I fine that also when busy in the house or other going some where I forget to eat and don't feel hungry,so I guess it mind over matter.

Have to go,have my handyman coming over to cut my hedges.

Have a great day

Just hit a button and lost my post. Darn!

Nancy, how about a photo of your new do? We'd all like to see it.

Pam, kudos for not gaining while dh is away. Spot has a white spot between his eyes. I saw him again this morning. Life is good!

Maryann, glad you're getting all your things repaired. Hope there's not #3.

Vickie, how was lunch? Our heat is supposed to break a bit, too, and we may even get rain. :woohoo:

Rhonda, glad Doyle has stepped up (as expected). I'm glad your pain isn't so bad, too. Keep doing what you need to do.

I just made lunch. We had some meatballs made with salsa. They are yummy! The sauce for them is just salsa and low-sugar grape jelly. (2 cups & 1/3 cup). All you do is bring it to a boil, simmer a bit then add meatballs.

Got to go. I hear the dryer calling.

Hi everyone,

I have been off the wagon for awhile. :o But, I guess I will get back on.

Rhonda- I'm glad surgery went well and you have a sweet husband to help you out!

Everyone stay cool and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Jackie, I fell off that wagon Thursday and got run over. We'll hop back on and be on our merry ways. This was just a speed bump or a detour. (Am I overdoing this?) Good success to you and to me, too. We can do this!

I am visiting an out of town friend today & tomorrow...We were childhood friends & have stayed friends..She & her husband are such fun..Just going to Walmart with them is a hoot..

Sandra..I will try to post a picture. My roots had gotten very dark and the new color lightened everything up. I can't do my bangs the way she did but I will keep trying. If I want to I could go by and she will show me what she did again. I fell off the wagon tonight also. I am visiting friends out of town and we had some of the best pizza I have ever had. Oh my !!
Your meatball sauce sounds easy & good.

Maryann..good job maintaining...Maybe the theater is still there & just not showing up on the web site. Can you try to call them?

Rhonda..glad Doyle is taking such good care of you...makes me smile..

Pam & are funny about your "hoarders rooms" I watch that show just to feel better about my house in comparison..I have been working on a sweep through the house to get rid of extra things..Thats so rewarding to haul out stuff to our thrift store.

Hi Ladies:)

The temps are a little better today than yesterday,looks like the humidity is gone. Going to see the Spider Man movie,and when my DD told my GD that I was going to see spider man she told her mom to tell me not to leave during the credits and there going to be a surprise for me.

SANDRA-Thanks,,thought there was going to be a #3 but I was mistaken,but thinking it might have been the heat.My friend Rita told me that her phone wasn't working and now it ok again,so she told me she thinks its the heat also.

JACKIE-We all fall off the wagon,now & than, but the best thing it to get back up like you did, and congrats for that,as some others won't return.

NANCY-Thanks hope to lose next week now that the birthday parties and 4 of July holiday is over. Now I can plan my week in advance. My friend called and also saw in the newspaper that the theater is still opened. I guess they didn't give the information out on the computer this week.

:wave: Hi RHONDA

Have a great day
