Hi Again.....:wave:

For all of you AI watchers, What did you think of tonight's show???!! I thought they were all pretty bad compared to last weeks show! They lost some good singers last week.Tonight was kinda boring to me!

Shelley,
Sorry to hear about the fake purse! I would be fuming too! Hopefully he will send all of your money back.Did you check to see his/her feedbacks? Let us know what happens!

Ramona,
I'll be watching the news at 10:00 to see if I see Ben! I think I'll reconize him from photos you have posted!!

Debbie,
How do you feel?

Carol,
Sorry to hear about another death in your family. Take care & if you need us, please let us know! We love you!! Tomorrow is a new day...You'll get right back being OP!! We've lost it before and we CAN do it again!!!! Hang in there & don't give up girl!!

Can't post to everyone now...gotta get in the shower.I'm so tired!

Hugs.........

Hi Girls:wave:

I'm still kicking here in Pleasant View. Not completely well, but feeling better. My trip to the doctor's yesterday was a total waste of time. He said he wanted me to have a CT scan on my sinuses but he could tell I had lots of damage to my nostrils and he was sure I would need surgery. Forget that!! So back to square one!

Carol.....Sorry for your loss!! Will you be going to Florida for the funeral? I'm in the same boat, can't seem to stay OP for a whole day either. I've used the excuse of being sick lately but no excuse is really good enough.

Sherry.....WTG on staying OP all day. Tell us your secret!!!

Ramona....How exciting for Ben. I'll be watching the news tonight for him too.

Shelley....That has always been a fear of mine. Hope everything works out for you about getting your money back.

I was disappointed in American Idol tonight too. The Hawaiian girl was really the only one I liked.

Well...tomorrow is another day, and once again I will try to stay OP...FOR the whole DAY!!!

Hugs...debbie

Hi girls!!!

I watched American idol and like you guys, was disappointed. they had a GREAT group last week to choose from, this week, no one really stood out. I did notice the girl with larger hips sang tonight. She had the long reddish colored hair. This is the girl Simon told to lose weight otherwise she would never be an American Idol. Ruban??

Sherry: GREAT JOB STAYING OP!!!

Dee: You'll do just fine staying with your mom. I hope she gets out of there this week. Can she eat yet?

Ramona: I heard the stuff was gross and loaded full of sugar? Are you talking about the shape-up bars as meal replacements?

Shelley: I agree with everyone else, try to work it out with the seller, if that fails, go through ebay & paypal. If it was me, I might go ahead and contact ebay, just for the fact that after you send the purse back, the guy still have half of your money plus the purse. The transaction will look complete to ebay, so this seller is under no obligation to reimburse you. Also, save your emails if you need to provide proof to ebay to file a complaint. How did the feedback look?

Carol: I am so sorry sweetie that you are going through a rough time now. Would it not be nice if there was a magic pill that would make life easier and we could all be skinny? Let us know what we can do for you to motivate you again. I'm so, so sorry to hear about your cousin. Will you be able to go to the funeral?

Tina: I watched the Littlest Groom...I'm not sure if I liked it. It seemed to me to be poking fun of little people in general. OR why not, off the bat have a mixture of tall and little people? It seemed to focus on the little women and that they could not compare to the tall women. Are you also watching the MBFOF show afterwards? I curious to see if they pull off the marriage this next week.

Debbie: Will surgery help? Maybe you a should consider it compared to being sick all season. I hope something works for you soon.

Well we had a tragedy happen about 3 a.m. this morning about 1.5 miles from us. An air-med plane went down killing the pilot, nurse and EMT on board. Luckily, it did hit in a field not getting close to any of the houses in the area. It really can make you stop and think. It could of just as easily hit a home or for that matter, if it had traveled just a bit further, our home. We really should count each day as a special blessing.

Ramona: BTW: I watched the news, but never seen anything about the Pres. if you get a pic, please post it!

Back to square one today. I had to go through 3 pairs of pants to find a pair that did cut me in half!!!

I am really going to try to stay OP today!!!

Debbie: You and I. Day 1. We can do this.

Sherry: You have one day ahead of me, but I am going to do this so I can keep up with you. :)

Lets all get motivated again!!! Anyone else out there want to make this Day One of the rest of our lives!!!!!

As it turns out there is only going to be a private service for only the immediate family for my cousin. He has donated his organs and is going to be cremated. I am just going to send some flowers and a card to the family.

Shelley: Just yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine who shops ebay. She had a bad experience at Christmas time in getting what she bid on. She complainted lots to ebay and all they did was tell her to give it time. Finally she tried to get her money back at paypal, but it had been over 30 days and they wouldn't honor it!! She did end up getting the present she bought for Christmas for her son on 12/24!!! But only after she emailed ebay and told them that if she didn't recieve the item by 12/23 that she was going to sue them for the price and damages!!! She said the item she bought on ebay (when she received it) had a Walmart shipping label!! She thought they just went out and bought one and shipped it to her to keep her from sueing. I hope you can get your deal straightened out!!! Good luck!

Gayle: Oh My God!! what a sad occasion when the people that help you die!! My prayers are with those people in that plane and their families. They died helping others!

The only reality show I watch anymore is Survivor. I am just tired of them. There are way too many!!!

Gotta run or I will be late for work.
Hugs to you all
Have a great OP Day!!!

Shelley, this type of person is what gives ebay a bad name. For every honest seller, like us, trying to make some extra money, there is 1-2 dishonest sellers following right behind. It would not surprise me in the least if this isn't a new guy with hardly any feedback. His scam could be to ship off the bag, offer 1/2 refund now, then the other half when the purse is shipped back. He sends half, gets the purse and forgets you. He still has half of the money in his pocket. Hmmm..$50.00 for a plastic purse? Not to shabby. They will do this for a few weeks until complaints start rolling in. Then ebay will suspend them. Which, they just start up again under a new name and as a new account. I wish you luck!

CAROL: YOU WILL STAY OP TODAY! I'm sending the little OP fairy to sit on your shoulder!

ShelleyM
02-18-2004, 05:54 PM
I mailed it off to him today. I have contacted both people that bid on his Louis Vuitton bag. The one person was so glad that I emailed her before the end of the auction. I only just contacted the winning buyer, so I don't know what she'll do or how she will respond to my email. Gayle, he only had 1 feedback and that was from a seller.

The person that bought my afghan plates emailed me and said that they are so much more than she expected. Another person emailed me when she received her CD purse and said that this was the first time she had received something that was actually as promised and she wants to know if I have any other purses or jewelry that I want to sell.

Again I'm not addressing everyone. Mike's sister and bro in law are coming over and bringing Chinese. These are the ones that live in Tn. and are trying to move back here.

Later!

Hello everyone!!! Add me to the list of staying OP today!! This weight watchers seems to easy I must be doing something wrong. Hopefully I will start seeing some more results soon.
The OP fairy must be watching all of us.
Are any of you Subway lovers? I got a salad there today and they now have shredded cheese, cherry tomatoes and eggs! A mini salad bar!

Gayle I feel the same way about the littlest groom. I think he will choose a little lady. I just think he would be more comfortable. I kinda felt sorry for the little ladies when they brought in the avg size ladies. I do watch MBFOF. It is looing like her family will not go to the wedding. From the previews I saw I think someone will object too. He is obnoxious but her family seems extra snooty to me.

Hope everyone has a great night and a great day tomorrow.
Talk to you soon;
Tina

WHere is everyone!! Hope everything is OK.
Today has been a hard day to stay OP. We are having a benefit Saturday to help my uncle who has brain cancer with his bills. I have been baking and getting donations together. It is very hard to not taste test the goodies. I had one Peanut Butter cookie. Probably 10 points in that alone LOL.
Hope everyone has had a good OP day.
Talk to you later.

I'm like Tina....Where is everyone??? :?:

Today is day 3 for me being OP!!!! :cp: Maybe I can do it this time!!!

Tina,
I got the coupons today! Thanks so much! That's not bad just to have one cookie while doing all that baking!! You should be proud! That is so sweet what ya'll are doing to raise money for your Uncle. Bless his heart. BTW: Are you doing WW? If so, Would you post your foods over at "Mealtime" for me so I can get some ideas from you?

Gayle,
How are your classes going? Making big bucks yet? When would you like to have chat again?

Shelley,
Let us know if you get your money back from "Mr. Ripoff!" How's School going?

Ramona,
Was Ben on the news? I looked for him but didn't see him. Did I miss it? How's work?

Debbie,
You sounded so much better this morning when I talked to you!! Not completely well...but better! :)

Carol,
Did you stay OP today? I know once you get going it will be so much easier. I know it is for me!

Dee,
Are you still at your Mom's? How is she? I sure do miss you!

Vicki,
How is your Mom? How did the stroke affect her?

To all the Floozie's MIA:
I MISS YOU!!!! PLEASE post soon if nothing but a quick hello!

Hey everyone. I'm getting ready for bed, but like Sherry said, I'm going to post a quick "hello".
Dan did get to eat with the President, but he didn't get to actually meet him. Oh well, it is still something he will always remember.
Work is going fine. I've had some cases this week that have really shaken me. The one with parents abusing their child makes me just want to run to the bathroom and cry. It it totally beyond my comprehension.
Eating has been atrocious this week. I don't know what the answer is, but I hope I find it soon.

Well, good night everyone.

02-20-2004, 09:34 AM
Ramona, unless I missed something too...the wedding is still on. Randy's parents are taking it better then I thought they would. Her mom is going along with her wishes, dad is suspicious, but not saying anything. Her two brothers are acting like butt-heads and refusing to go to the wedding. The older brother can be a total a**! Her sister is just hanging, not saying too much of anything. Steves "family" is still up to no good. His mom tried teaching all of the women how to "pole dance" and strip, she then suggested to have pizza rolls served at the wedding because Steve likes them. The sister and best friend are still goofy and the dad is really playing games with Randy's dad. It looks like Randy's older brother will cause problems at the wedding, even if they can't pull it off, I think she still deserves the money for everything she has went through. Something did cross my mind though...a very major part of the program was trying to catch Randy by asking her Steves BD and favorite color...she hurried and told Steve how to answer. The next time Steve was around dad, Randy's dad did ask him and he had the same answers. I found it odd that they would be concerned about this stuff when no mention has been made to religion, family background etc. Makes you wonder how much of the "good stuff" gets edited.

I am doing weight watchers I will try to remember and post my menu for today this evening. That is a great idea I get tired of eating the same thing. I already added animal crackers to my grocery list.

Evening everyone....

I swear i must be an evil person that everytime i turn around there is a major problem popping up to cause stress. After 3 years of emotional stress i thought this would be the year things would start looking up.
Well here is the problem, we are sitting eating dinner and our daughter calls to tell us that we need to come and pick her up b/c the police are at the apt. she is at and they are arresting her boyfriend's cousin for drugs. My heart i think stopped working for a minute b/c i couldn't believe what i was hearing on the phone.
Well we get there and there she is sitting and her boyfriend and 2 girls i never seen before and there is this table with so much pot on it that i thought i was going to be so ill. The cops tell us that she is one lucky girl and that they were not going to arrest her but that she could have and been in alot of trouble tonite. Her boyfriend had no idea that this kid had and was dealing drugs. We brought her home and they are scared shitless and i am so glad that they are.. They will be re-evaluating thier situation very much so.

I am sitting here having chest pains from the stress of worrying everyday about my mom who by the way is doing extremely well and no effects from her episode the other week.

I don't think i can take much more hurt from anyone or i will be the one doing something drastic. I will get off my box now and thanks for letting me vent ...

Sorry to post a negative but knew my friends would listen.

Vicki

Vickster, you don't have an evil bone in your body, life just dumps crap on us every so often. In fact, I have found it to be true that the good people seem to always have more bad stuff happening to them. It must be Gods way of telling you that he knows your a strong woman and can handle it. So, the boyfriend is saying he didn't know about the drugs? I find that very hard to believe. In your daughters defense, I have been in a situation like that and went along with everything in the sake of love. My first husband abused drugs (I didn't) but I married him and stayed with him because I was young and I really thought I knew what love was. I didn't... :-) I know your upset and I'm sorry, I wish I knew a way to take some of the hurt away. Know that you have a very special friend here in Kansas that loves and cares about you. Try not to think to much and get back involved with the things your doing for you like the red hat club etc. Ok?? LOVE YA! Gayle

Hi girls:wave:
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. The weather is beautiful here, almost like springtime. We worked on the deck all day. I have muscles hurting me this morning that I didn't know I had. Digging post holes and pouring concrete...Are you impressed? LOL

Vicki....Sorry for all your problems. Raising children is hard, and I wonder if our job is ever done. My grown kids still give me heartache all the time.

Sherry...Hope you had a good time at Chris' yesterday. Looking forward to celebrating with you with next weekend. I'm feeling kinda old today!!

Your girls have been doing such a great job staying OP. WTG!!! I have been 50-50 this last week. Can't seem to OP 100% all day long. This week I will be 5? and still battling with these extra pounds. Surely with the rude awakening of being another year older it will hit home to me and I will once in for all decide to stick with this weighloss challenge. Something has to click with me soon.

Love to all my floozie friends...deb

Debbie: I hear you. I did so well for 2 whole days, then fell off again. I can't believe that after I lost that weight I have put back on 15!! Why do we do this to ourselves. I am going to try again starting tomorrow. We are doing to the inlaws for dinner today so it is hopeless to start today. She is a great cook and cooks enough for an army.

Talk to you all later. I am too depressed to talk right now.

Howdy:wave:

Chris moved out (again) last weekend. He had been at home for a year since his last move-out (which lasted a year). Him & his best friend moved into a house in the country. It's so pretty and they have decorated nicely.

Monday is his 21st Birthday. Yesterday he had a cook-out for his Birthday. What's funny is that he had me to bring almost all the food! :lol: Well....good news: I stayed OP!! :D

Carol & Debbie.......
You will & can get back OP 100%!!!! I had a hard time too.I was about 75% everyday and couldn't seem to get back 100%. Then one day I asked myself if I wanted to look good in my swimsuit and shorts this summer or did I want to look & feel bad. Somehow it clicked! Please don't give up and remember we're all here for you!! YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!

Vicki....I know you must be very upset! You may never know if your Daughter & her b/f knew that his friend was a drug dealer or not. But what's important is that hopefully this was an eye opener and they can count their blessings that he didn't get them caught up in this drug thing also.{I pray they haven't} We're here for you!! We love you & let us know if you need to talk! You can email me anytime!

WHERE IS EVERYONE ELSE??????

Have a great day! :) I'll check back in later. Cleaning house & washing today.

Sherry-I've been guilty of just lurking. You have been doing great staying OP, but I haven't seen any posts from you on the exercise thread!

Vicki-You are an amazing person. Just remember that things could have been MUCH worse if they had arrested your daughter! You are very lucky in that respect.

Carol and Debbie-Keep trying to stay OP. Even partly on is better than not at all! Why don't you both come over and start walking?

I got all my money back from the shyster, so I am not going to leave him any kind of feedback at all. I am just happy to have gotten a refund.

I don't know if any of you have children in Odyssey of the Mind, but I am judging it this year. I did it 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. Yesterday I had an all day training and the event is March 6 all day long.

Gayle-Have you given any more thought to the wine cup for Patty?

I have to go take the girls to work now.

Shelley,
Now that Chris is gone again, The room is empty except for a treadmill. No excuses for not walking now! I may try to walk tonight if I'm not too tired from cleaning!!

Hi everyone...I'm guilty of lurking... :o

Shelley - I hope you reconsider your decision not to post feedback on the person who sold you the fake purse. I know if I read feedback about him selling a fake, I wouldn't buy from him. Your feedback could keep someone else from getting gypped.

Ramona - :grouphug: I was an investigative assistant for a federal law enforcement agency for five years and I know how tough some of the cases can be sometimes. Child abuse is always the worst to deal with. It's really important that you work through the emotions it brings up, otherwise you will burn out. Keep sharing here.

Everyone else...I feel badly for not keeping up with the boards as much as I used to. It just seems lately that I am on the :censored: computer 24/7!

Hi girls! I hope you are all having a nice weekend. It is simply beautiful outside today! I wish I could just sit outside in the sunshine, but I have too much to do inside.
We went to a banquet last night and Rick bought a raffle ticket for the ladies' table...and he won! So, I got a whole table full of gifts, some really nice and some.....well...let's just say I have some more things for my garage sale! The most hilarious thing was I won was a package of halter tops. One was floral, one had Harley Davidson Flames, and one was camouflage.......CAN YOU IMAGINE ME IN ONE OF THOSE???!!!! hahaha Of course, everyone else thought it was hilarious and they took my picture holding the halter tops! If it makes the paper, you'll probably here me scream all the way to Canada!!!

Jennelle, I know what you mean about trying to work through the emotions. Everyone says I'll get used to it. Well, I hope I never get used to it. The day that happens is the day that I'm a different person. I can deal with it, but I'll never understand it.

For everyone struggling to stay OP, I'll send good thoughts your way if you'll send them mine.

For everyone who is staying OP, congrats and keep up the good work!

Oh yeah, we went to a wedding yesterday afternoon. The whole wedding was a bit different than what I'm used to, but it was nice. When the minister pronounced them husband and wife, they kissed, and then the groomsmen all pulled score cards out of their tuxes and rated the kiss. That was something I'd never seen before, but it sure lightened everything up. The whole audience broke out in laughter!

Okay, I'm off to get some things done. Dan's girlfriend is going to see him Wednesday and I have some things for her to take to him. He leaves for Kuwait City one week from Tuesday.

Sherry how sweet of you to say that you miss me. I miss you too when I am away. I don't know what I would do with out you guys. You are a big part of my life.
I got home late friday night. Mom is doing ok, getting a little stronger each day. We are so lucky that she didn't have brain damage. her vocal cords may have a bit of damage and she just needs to get her strength back and she will be back to normal. She needed to quit smoking and this has been hard on her. How far is Chris from you? How are you coping with his move? Way to go for staying on program.

Shelley I too have been burned from ebay. If I would have read some negitive feed back I would not have bought from this guy. How is Brutis doing this weekend? Keep up the jogging and that is wonderful that you are staying on program.

Vicki that must have been quite the scare for everyone. Your daughter is lucky. I hope that she realizes the consequences of being around drugs. Glad that you vented here.

Carol tomorrow is a new week. You can get back on program tomorrow and not look back.

Debbie wow I cannot believe it is like spring there. We are still buried in snow. You will just love your pool this summer.

Tina I love the ww program. It is so flexible. Now for me to get back on it tomorrow.

Gayle how was your weekend? Did you do anything for yourself?

Yesterday Larry and I went snow golfing. That was our first time. After our team of four had a round of beer we headed out onto the fairway of snow with out 3 irons and tennis balls. The snow was up to our knees in places, good thing it was a mild day because we got soaked. Anytime our ball went off the fairway it was a ***** to find. It was a 9 hole course. We had pit stops at the shooter shack at holes 4 and 7. They served shooters in capped pill bottles. It helped me improve my game. There was a roaring fire beside the shooter shack that we dried our socks on. We had a blast. After our game we heading in for a few brewskis. Our team ended up with the best score. Not bad considering we scored between 40 to 51. We won 4 tickets to the hockey game thursday. We also won some door prizes. When it was time to go we had to draw straws to see who would drive the short distance home. Larry had a few more beers than I did and I haven't remewed my drivers liscence since I got home. Larry had the short straw, he drove home sweet home.

Today Larry is doing some renos on our bedroom foyer. I am just dicking around and thinking of Mexico.

Damn I'm tired!!!! I've done some deep cleaning today!!! I have added junk to the stuff downstairs for our yard sale and have thrown away 2 big trash bags full of junk! I'm one tired mama!! :(

Dee!!!!!
I'm so glad you're home and happy to hear that your Mom is doing good! I laughed so hard at your story about golfing in the snow! That is too funny! :rofl: We wanted snow here so bad but looks like we will have none! Chris lives about 30 miles from here. Yes..It was so hard to see him move out. I know he'll do well and he'll be home a lot to visit. :) BTW: I read your post twice...Did you say you were "dicking" around????!!!! :lol: You crack me up!

Ramona,
Hey you're a hot mama!! Put that halter top on and show some BOD!!! :D I'm like you, I couldn't enjoy the beautiful day from being inside cleaning! The wedding sounded different indeed! :lol:

Jennelle,
Good to hear from you.Now stop lurking and POST!!!!!! Are you still trying to lose weight? If so, What plan are you following?

Debbie,
Are you stilll working on the deck? I hope you won't be too sore tomorrow to work! With you working on it all weekend I bet you lost a few lbs!! Someone's birthday is in 3 days! Hmmmm....Wonder who?! :D

Hey everyone,

Thanks for the support b/c that girl of mine is definitely one lucky girl, this guy and girlfriend of his never told anyone that they were dealing in drugs, this SOB had over 50,000 worth of drugs there. Cara would never had been there if she knew that he even remotely had anything to do with it. She has definitely had a wake up call to be more aware of her surroundings. I have told her about guilt by association and these cops gave her a break. I have just been so out of sorts b/c this is something that she knows that we are so highly against and seeing how her cousin was hit by drunk driving and others in the family who have had problems with drinking and drugs. Geez you can't be with them all the time but i told she would never have to worry about going to jail b/c i will put her out of her misery myself. Her dad just hardly said to words except to blowup a little he believes that since she wasn't involved that hopefully she has learned a hard lesson. This is such a hard thing to swallow b/c i feel that i have not done something right in parenting her and deep down i know she is a wonderful girl but then i have to say my trust level is extremely low right now.

So i hope next week is or will look up.

Check in later thanks again for letting me vent once again.

Sherry - To answer your question, I'm not trying to "lose weight" per se, but rather trying to keep my sanity where food is concerned. I have 'fessed up to the fact that I am a compulsive overeater. I'm working the OA steps and have an OA sponsor...I don't attend face-to-face meetings because there aren't many in my area. (It's not like AA, where you can pretty much find a meeting on every corner.) I haven't binged or eaten sweets (candy, pie, cake, cheesecake, etc.etc.) since December 21. I have lost about ten pounds altogether, but I'm most happy about my sanity returning. :)

02-23-2004, 01:11 AM
Vickster, it will get better, I promise. Cara learned a lesson, like you said, to be more aware of her surroundings and the people she associates with. Is her boyfriend still living with you guys? I know things will work out, your a good mom and a good person, don't think that you did anything to bring this on.

Vicki, everything is going to be ok. Cara was at the wrong place and she didn't even know it. Fortunately for her she didn't get in trouble with the law. A hard lesson learned. This just might be a good thing.

Jennelle I am glad that you are feeling better about yourself. Ten pounds gone that is great. Keep it up or should I say down.

Sherry you work to hard at cleanning the house but I guess when you work full time and have a part time job all you have left to do the housework is the weekend. I like a reaaly clean house too. I don't know how I would do it if I was working full time. Hats off to you girl.

Gayle tell Steve the next time we go snow golfing I will invite him. We did have fun.

Now girls about dicking around.....lol I told Larry that Sherry said that it was really funny and that americans mustn't use those terms. He just laughed and said neither do we, It is dickering around! Oh my god I just laughed and told him it sounds so much like dicking around I never noticed and nobody told me any different when I said it. I stand corrected........hey but it was fun for a laugh that I didn't even know that I would get.

Time for dicking around now!

Have a good dicking day!

Gayle, he was supposed to leave the 24th, but they moved it to the 2nd of March. It there is one thing I've learned about the military, it's "hurry up and wait"!

DEE.......I'm not even going to go there! You just say it however you want to!!! hahaha

Vicki, I know you and Cara were both terrified. She is indeed a lucky young lady. Just being in the same location with all of those drugs could have landed her in prison with a felony conviction. I'm sure she'll choose her companions very wisely in the future!

Sherry, will you come and get all of my yard sale stuff ready? I swear our house is going to look empty when I get this sale over with!

Jennelle, good for you on changing your attitude towards food. That is a great accomplishment that will improve your life!

Debbie, how are you feeling? I hope you are all over your sinus problem!

Shelley, how is Brutus? How are things going with your new position?

Are you all going to watch the AI outtakes tonight? It should be hilarious and yes, William Hung will be performing "She Bangs" !!!

Hi Ladies!!!
Ramona I saw William Hung on some celebrity gossip show. He has been getting all kinds of calls. He has sung at ball games and been on talk shows. He has been offered a record deal with $25,000 up front. They said the are comparing his quirky style to Tiny Tims. Boy did he luck up. And Yes I will be watching tonight.

Glad to hear everyone is doing well. Talk to you later.

Dee - It's not just a Canadian thing...I use it, too. So does my hubby. A perfect example: "Son, quit dicking around and just get your chores done!" :)
