I like it all, giving support, getting support, and I'm just starting but I have been there and done that and I do have the t-shirt. LOL :lol: I'm not sure what I'm getting into but sounded like a good place to check in and make new diet buddies. :high:

Welcome to "findingmyself"! :cp: So what do we call you for short? For the most part there are Rosey, Donna, Summer, Kris, Daphne, Me, and Glen who post on this thread and we're a variety of sizes and ages and likes and dislikes. If you choose to stay with us, we can give you a brief intro of us. It seems like when we do that, we lose the new friend for some reason. :lol: Maybe it's because Donna is too small and has lost her weight and reached goal maybe?? :rofl: Well if that's it, I'm about 100 something pounds bigger so there you go. You're have to fit in between us somewhere so welcome!

Nothing much to report here. My weight has remained the same thing for 5 days straight. I know at least it's not a gain cause I did have potatoes and some pintos lastnight and they are very carbful. Summer, we haven't tried the fake taters yet. I have to get some cauliflower first. Rosey I have no doubts that you've lost 5 more pounds. That's awesome so stay positive. Well I better run and start making the grocery list for tomorrow. I have Laken's awards day tomorrow and bretts graduation on thursday which is being held at the high school. Did I mention that I would have to do that all alone??

05-18-2004, 09:57 AM
WELCOME FINDINGMYSELF! My name is Donna and I'm the one Dana said is TINY??? ROFLOL :rofl: :lol3: :lol: Yeah... I wish. Anyway, even though I reached my goal it has not been easy keeping it off. I had surgery in March and since then I have been trying to get around 4 pounds back off. I read somewhere that the anesthesia can cause you to gain weight!!! I felt some better. BUT I know I won't get any sympathy from Dana! :lol: :) :D (I'm joking with ya, Dana! :joker: ) I look forward in getting to know you better, *findingmyself* ! :yes:
Rosey, :bravo: on losing more weight!!!! You all are doing great I think. :encore:
We are getting much needed :rain: today. My grass looks greener by each minute it is still raining! :)
Summer, have you had any more gigs lately? I visited your site yesterday and it still looks good! Are you getting any response to that? Did you tell me when your pool opens? I am sorry, I have that sometimers disease again. :stress:
Well, this is going to be short but sweet. I need to get ready to go over to my Dads. We are finishing packing his kitchen today and some of the sunroom. Don't want to do too much of it though so that he doesn't have anything till the house is finished. We are also planning his birthday party in June. A lot is on my plate lately and I will be glad when school is out (in a way) LOL
I'll be checking in more later. I hope you ALL have a great OP day!!!! :wave: :high:

Dana.. I know what you mean about carbs.. I love Black Eyed Peas and I had some Sunday.,. My weight is the same.. How can a veggie be so bad..
Its a good thing that you had no weight gain..but I know its also flustrating when it stays the same.. I am there now...
It seems anything thats sticks to your ribs sorta speak is bad.. I know the feeling and also with any kind of budget streacher ( casseroles etc. ) They are bad too..It makes it hard to make the right choices.. Please dont get discouraged.. It will come off..Please try the fake mashed Pots when you can they are really good.. You are so busy with all the childrens things going on..Its that time of year..Graduations and such.. Please take some pictures if you can.. I am sorry that you have to do them alone..:grouphug:

05-18-2004, 05:46 PM
Let's don't get into the age issue now!!! :lol: :no: :no: LOL FINDINGMYSELF, I am actually 44 years old. I am married going on 19 years in October and we have a 9 year old daughter named Elena. We live in South Carolina and I recently lost 30 pounds. I think it's trying to find me again but I'm hiding from it. (whispering) Don't tell it you saw me here, ok?! ;) :dizzy:
Rosey, I can't believe you are soon having a b-day!! Wow! I'm not going to say happy birthday till next week.. OK?? LOL I bet it's going to be fun for you in a way sewing for a smaller you! ;) I need to start sewing again. So far, I only have her registered in the Terrific Tuesdays program at our church but I'm going to register her in some acting workshops with the Children's Little Theatre and also she has her choice of going again to horse camp or swiming lessons if she makes a good final report card.
I am going to try and get her busy in a lot this summer. She needs to stay busy. There is a new kid on our street and she is over here most of the time. She is only 7 and you can see her wondering up and down the street. It's something and I'm not used to that when parents don't know or seem to care where their kids are half the time. Why even have them? Anyway, different strokes for different folks. I bet the baptism will be real nice. I love those.
Summer, my Dad is heading for MB tomorrow. I have a week reserved in August and maybe we will go again in October like we did last year. My Dad has not sold the place yet so I have a place to go till then or till he finds something else if he does sell it. He has been asked if he will take a certain price for it but nothing else has been said.
Well, I better go now. My sisters and I are going out to eat tonight.

05-19-2004, 01:42 AM
Hi And thanks for the welcomes. You all seem very supportive. If you choose to stay with us, we can give you a brief intro of us. It seems like when we do that, we lose the new friend for some reason. I don't think you could scare me off if you would like to give it a try though I would love to hear all of your stories. Wow, I might just fit right in here. Hee Hee.

Well, heres my story: I'm 34 years old. I have been married twice divorced once. I am now married to the sweetest guy on earth. We had a beautiful little girl who is turning 1 on Sunday. And I have a 8 year old little boy who is my angel. We live in Arizona. I am very lucky to have such a great family. I am thankful every day.

I have not been overweight my whole life, in fact it wasn't until I was 25 or so that I really started gaining weight. But I have been on a diet since I was about 14. I don't know why because I look back at pictures of highschool and college and I was fine. But I still did every diet I could find. I'm sure my metabolism suffered. Around 25 I gained to about 180 I would gain and lose the same 40 pounds. Then I got pregnant with my son. After he was born I really put on a lot of weight. Up to 210. I got serious, decided to change my entire thought process about food and committed to become healthy. I exercised and ate right and I lost all of the weight by the time he was two. I kept it off staying between 135-140 for about 4 years. Then I got pregnant with my daughter. And this time I must have just gone crazy eating fast food and junk after she was born I weighed around 230 and once again was very depressed. It has taken me this long to quit beating myself up for gaining this weight and to recommit to losing it the right way. And that is what I am doing now.

I am truly trying to find myself again. Since I have put this weight back on I have become a different person. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything. I am cranky and depressed a lot. And I am trying very hard to stop acting this way. I want to find the person I use to be. The one who was afraid of nothing, would go anywhere do anything and just loved to be on the move.

So since April 24th I have been doing great. Eating right and exercising. Then for some reason on Friday I dropped the ball and took the weekend off. Today I was doing really well. Until a little bit ago. My husband was out running errands and said he was getting taco bell. I told him I wanted nothing. He brought me something anyway and I ate it and so now that is just one more day to add to my not doing so well days. So I am very upset about this. Anyway, I know I will lose this weight. I have nothing to wear if I don't. So, I will just have to get back on the good roll I was on. I don't know why I went off track so far but I will get back.

Thats about it for my story.... Kinda long huh?

Hello Dana, Donna(AKA Tiny), Summer and Rosey, You all seem like such a great group of people. Thank you very much for the welcomes and giggles I got reading your posts.

Well, I guess I better get this house clean or tomorrow I will wake up to a mess.

Dee :dizzy:

05-19-2004, 03:11 AM
Hi there Dee I am Daphne. I don't have time to post but wanted to say welcome to our chat group!

05-19-2004, 11:38 AM
Hello...It has been raining all morning..but we needed it so bad..Its some what cooler thanks to the rain.. I am so glad that the heat-wave is over for awhile..I hope that the bugs go away soon..:lol:...I have errands to run and need to get all done so I can take Bert out tomorrow for lunch..
I cant wait to see Buddy Friday night. There are alot people coming to see we will need a big table at the resturant..I am so happy that he is able to do this..I want tofond a new blouse to wear..Right now most of my things are to small or to to big..soooo I hope I can find a nice one..
I have lots to do laundry..that never ends..:lol:

Rosey....I wish I lived near you.. I would pay you to make me somethings..
I am sure you will make some really nice outfits to wear on your trip and for the baptism this weekend..I knew you must be tickled to be making smaller clothes..I would give anything to sew..Like those cover things for lounge chairs..All they are is terry cloth material with elastic sewed in to put over a lounge chase..and they are selling off the shelves..
I plan on buying one myself.. If I could sew I could make a couple dollars making those things and seeling them here at my pool alone they would be a big hit..and go fast..I wish I could sew but I never had the knack for it..
I was suprised at your age Rosey..and you are NOT OLD..even if you feel that way.. I always say I feel 90....but there is a younger smaller person still inside of me..wanting to get out..I think my weight has made me feel old..It wears me down..Since I have lost these few pounds I do have a little more energy and that makes me feel better..
I always thought I was really the oldest here and come to find out we are close but I am older by a year.. I am 55 and will be 56 in July..No I dont mind you asking :lol:...You are having a birthday next week.. Any plans?? I will wait to wish you HB then..Enjoy your trip with your family this weekend..
Have a great day :love: :wave:

Donna.. I wish I was in MB right now.. I am glad that your Dad's house is still in the family.. Maybe he will keep it after all..I wish I could come in August..I will say something to Jim and see..but right now we are planning a trip in September around the 11 or 12 with friends....How was your dinner with your sisters?? Where did you all eat?? Are they helping you with your Dad's BD party in June???
It so hard for me when we go out to pick the right foods.. Its all so tempting..Thats why I have to slack up some on the weekends.. I am sure if I would stick to the plan on the weekends I would see more weight loss but its so hard..I need to reslove that some how and stick with the diet on the weekends..I am sure you are busy with your Dad's house today..Alot more packing..I think everyone acumalates more stuff over the years and when they move they say.....where did all of this come from... I dont like packing..but I will be happy to pack this house up and move to MB...
Have a great day :love: :wave:

Dee.....Glad that you are staying with us..Thank-you for telling us about yourself.. I am also married 2 times.. My Guy is a wonderful man and I am very fortunate to have him..I can relate to your weight issues..I have been up and down also..Its hard to lose and keep it off..I will tell you that its eaiser coming off when you are younger.. I have found that the older you get the harder it is to take off weight.. I guess its a metabolism thing..
My own weight problems are proof of that..Is was faster coming off when I was younger takes alot more effort..
I am sure you will get back on track..We can only take one day at a time..and thats all anyone can do..Weight can make you feel older and bad about yourself.. all those things happen to us all.. I know that you can do it....When you fall off the diet..just say..ok..I will do better tomorrow and try again..You will do it..We all will do it together..
Have a great day :love: :wave:

Daphne...How are you???? I miss you and hope that things are good with you Sweetie.. :grouphug:..Have a good day :love: :wave:

Dana...I am sure you are real busy with everything going on
I miss you..Have a great day :love: :wave:

Kris....Mr Ken......:cb: :cb:..They are loose and on the hunt..:mag:

05-19-2004, 06:44 PM
Thank you Daphne for the welcome. I know how it is when you can only get on here for two minutes to post.

Summer, thank you so much for the encouragement. i am doing so much better today. I think I am addicted to this site. I do much better when I can get on here and read and post. I definately want to lose it for good this time. I never want to gain it back again. Although I said that last time. I guess after 4 years I thought I was invincible and I found out I'm not. Darn.

I will check in later when I can. Baby is crying and I have to pick up my son from school.

Take care everyone. I hope you are having a good day. i hope you find your missing buddies. :D I don't know how I found you all or where you came from but I'm sure glad I did.

Rosey do you have any snow left? It's 77 degrees here right now and it's nearly 11 in the mornning. I have a lot to do in such a short amount of time but just wanted to stop in to say :wave: for now. I just got back from my oldest son's 5th grade graduation and he was officially pronounced a 6th grader by the middle school principal. My mom went to school with the principal which makes it sound strange and I graduated with her daughter so I hope that everyone over there respects brett and can see over him next year with his diabetes. I have to arrange soon to meet with some administration over there. It scares me with him going to that bigger school. I don't know how he will be with punctuality and changing classes.

05-20-2004, 12:11 PM
Hey guy, girls and Dee!

I'm Kris...the young one of the group. I live in Alabama and work for Auburn University.b I am married. My husband is a school teacher. I am chubby, but I don't know how chubby pound wise because I am allergic to the scale! :lol:

Alabama is hot and miserable this time of year and I desparately want to move further north. I am from Indiana originally. I have two dogs, no kids, 2 nieces, and 2 nephews.

DH and I like to travel a lot. We are going to the mountains for Memorial Day. To Europe in June, and then I have a conference. I also travel a lot for work, so I am hard to tie down! I am actually leaving after lunch..... :) AGAIN!

Hope all are well and I promise I;ll write more later.


05-20-2004, 12:58 PM
Dee, we are so happy to have you join us and share with us your struggles. We all are/have experienced some of the same and it is nice to know that there is sites like this where you can come and wear your heart on your sleeve. I know that this site has been a blessing to me. These ladies and gentleman have been the reason I did lose those 30 pounds. If it wasn't for their encouragment every step of the way I would not have done that now I need you all to get it off of me again! ;) :lol: :dunno: Life is not easy and it's nice to know that having friends here will help during those not easy times.

I am going to make this short but wanted to add my welcome again to Dee. :sorry: I will post more later.


05-20-2004, 02:15 PM
Hello Everyone..
I have been busy all morning and trying to do laundry and get everything done before water class tonight.. Our teacher didnt show last night and one of the ladys that take our class taught our class last night.. She did great.. She was a teacher where she use to live and she knew all the moves.. I was thankfull she came to our rescue.. It took a little prompting on our part but she finally gave in and did it.. It was fun...
Now on a serious note.. My Friend Buddy called and said that the Dr has decided to put him back into the hospital today and start some sort of Chemo..He will have 96 hours of it..straight...UNREAL...
He said that the other meds he has been on is not working and his tonsils are really swollen to the point where he can hardly swallow.. This is not good news.. He was given the choice of this or nothing..Like he said there really isnt any choice..The Dr said hopefully this Chemo wont bring him down like the previous Chemo did..The last bout with Chemo almost killed him
I feel so bad for him... and so helpless to help him....
Our dinner plans Friday night has been canceled..I choose to say they are on hold untill he wi better...
Please keep him in your prayers as I am really worried about him..
Thank-you All for your caring and kindness you all are :angel:..

Dee.. You are welcome.. Its so easy to gain weight back. Ask any of us and we have been there many times.. Like Rosey said.. Baby steps..small goals and before you know it..You are losing.. I know you can do it... We all can with each others help and here thats what you get Support Caring and the best people I know..Have a good day..:love: :wave:

Its never done no matter how much we do.. How is Curves going??
Have a good day :love: :wave:

Dana.. Glad you stopped in..Sounds like you are busy too.. Thats wonderful that Brett graduated..I hope that the school nurse will look after him next year.. I am sure that when you talk to them they will understand how Important his diabetes regiment is..I can understand your fears..Its a big step for him going to a larger school and changing classes and all..He has been through alot for his young age..God Bless him.. I think he will do good..
cause he has a Wonderful Mother to guide him...
Have a good day :love: :wave:

Kris...Good to hear from you...I had to laugh about you being allergic to the scale..:lol:..I know I am :lol:..You are off and running again..Wow going to Europe in June..That will be like a second honeymoon for you two.. Thats wonderful..Have fun on your Montain getaway on Memorial Day.. I really dont like the mountains..

05-20-2004, 05:25 PM
Hi everyone I have just a few minutes for now. I just got a letter from a friend on the other site that Dana and I post on. She is very depressed and needs some up lifting prayers. her 16 year old is being very cruel to her and it is breaking her heart. The stress is also causing trouble between her and the DH. I am calling her Monday and will hopefully cheer her up a bit. Please just say a cheer up prayer for her. Her name is Barbara Ann and she is really a sweet lady.

05-20-2004, 06:19 PM

:hb: rosey i have no plans for the summer
summer you are only as old as you feel.
:) glen

05-20-2004, 11:35 PM
Summer, Buddy is in my prayers. I'm so sorry, he must of felt really discouraged but you have to admire them for keeping up with that stuff. The human spirit is a hard one to break and he has a strong spirit that's for sure. Again, he is so fortunate to have you and Jim as such caring friends. That kind of friendship is one in a million. I hope your class went well tonight. I am so proud of you and Rosey for all you guys are accomplishing. I am getting back into my pilates and loving it. Dana, do you still do that?
Dee, I hope today was a good OP day for you too.
Dana, I guess my Elena is going on to the fourth grade next year as well. We received a school assignment sheet from her teacher saying Bryson 4th grade next year. It's hard to believe my baby is going to be in the fourth grade. :cry: :cry: Yesterday was the third graders track and field day. I volunteered to help didn't realize it was ALL DAY! LOL Anyway, one of the Moms there looked very familiar to me. She and I would talk some about the activities and then finally she asked me "where do I know you" We figured out where. She and I over ten years ago were "regulars" at a local gym here then called Holiday Health (Cher used to promote them) and she and I both would always be at the 5:45 aerobic class! Small world, huh? LOL ;) She still looks great and I wondered what she thought of how I looked. Of course then I was much smaller, fit and younger of course. :lol: :lol: :shrug:
My Dad's party is coming along. We hit a bump in the road with one of my sisters yesterday. Long story short but I think it's OK now. It's just a shame things can't go smooth at least ONCE when family is concerned. Don't worry Summer, I have help from my other sister in fact, she is doing more work than me because it's going to be held at her house because of the pool we will center around that seeing the theme is a Luau! :)
Daphne, your friend is in my prayers. I feel for those having problems with kids that are teenagers. I dread those years and I pray that Christ will return before then! :rofl: :lol: :lol3: I doubt very much I will be spared from that but anyway. Please keep us posted on how she is doing.
Kris, I wish I knew how you are. I thought it was funny that you are allergic to the scales!! :goodscale I think I'm allergic to all that is healthy. :)
Glen, no plans for the Summer? Hmmmmmm What do you do for entertainment? Do you go out to movies much? Do you have a certain group of friends you hang out with on a regular basis? You know, I really don't know that much about you. :dunno:
Well, I'm off now. I hope you all have a great evening. I'm so happy it's Friday tomorrow. This has been one long week for me! LOL


05-20-2004, 11:45 PM
Hi! Wow you all have a lot going on in here. Well, I've been doing pretty good. I strayed from my plan a little over the weekend. 5 days to be exact. But yesterday and today have gotten right back where I need to be. I do fine as long as I keep track of everything I eat. Otherwise I think I'm eating around 1200 calories and reality is probably at least double that.

Hi Glen, or should I call you Ken? or just doll? ;) Anyhow, I didn't know you all were aloud out of your mens corner. Just teasing really. Well, I hope you make it to Ken status. Barbies really not an unrealistic goal anyway is it? I never did think so :lol:. Well, I'm glad to meet you. I look forward to hearing more.

Kris, I know about being allergic to the scale. One of the members of this board talked me into weighing myself when I first came on here. Her logic was that I would then have a start weight for my success story. I thought I was going to have a meltdown when I found out what I weighed. You would have thought the end of the world was coming the way I acted. Anyway, it's just a number right?? It sounds like you really enjoy traveling. It is wonderful to see everything that is out there.

Donna, thank you so much for the welcome. You are right. It is soooo hard to lose weight if you have no one to talk to about everything you are going through. I don't really know why it is such a challenge. it seems like we would just eat what we need and be fine. But of course there are all of these evil temptations in life. Like brownies and fast food. Not that they tempt me at all :devil: . But, You will lose those 30 again.

Summer, I am so sorry to hear about your friend Buddy. Please let us know how he is doing. Chemo is horrible. But sometimes it works I guess. I will be thinking of Buddy. I hope he does okay. It is hard not to feel helpless, I bet he feels helpless right now also.

Daphne, I hope your friend is doing better. I think kids break a lot of hearts. My daughter is only 1 so I know I have a lot to look forward to. I here they are impossible after about 12. One of my friends called me in tears about her 12 year old daughter. They have had some rough days lately. :(

Rosey, It sounds like you really do live in paradise. What a beautiful home you must have. I have never actually seen a moose. It must be awesome to have them eating your grass. I will have to get more details on the marshmallow guns some time. Sounds like a blast. I have never heard of those before. I love to make things with my son. And, what a great feeling to have people who will never forget you because you were such a possitive person in thier lives. Wow, there are not very many child caregivers who can say that. They must have been very lucky to have you. I'm trying not to feel guilty about anything. It seems like since the day I became a mom I have had guilt about one thing or another. No matter what I do for or with my kids I wish I could do more. But I'm just one person.

I have to work all weekend but I will check in on my next days off and try to get my two cents in. I seem to have a really hard time sticking to my diet when I am working. I don't know why? I don't have a lot of time at work to eat it is always before and after work and I don't make good choices. Oh well, I will just try again this weekend maybe it will get easier :dizzy: . IT WILL GET EASIER. Anyway, It was great getting to know all of you. Have wonderful weekends. And TAKE CARE! Dee

P.S. I'm not sure how I managed to post twice. Maybe I was doing one for another time zone also???? :shrug: I will work on not being such a space hog. Hee Hee. :D

05-21-2004, 12:23 AM
Okay, I'm sorry, I said I would not be a space hog here. But I was looking around at stuff on the site and came across a thread that was really pretty inspirational. Anyway, one of the statements was about yo yo dieters and I thought it might make some of you as happy as it made me. So I copied it. Hope they don't mind....

recently read in Health magazine that people who have yo-yo dieted are the most likely to actually lose weight and keep it off. Why? Because they just keep trying til it works!

I think that must be true. I keep trying. Eventually it WILL work.

So goodnight all and I promise not to post again tonight. :D

Hello Everyone.
Another dreary day..Cloudy and rain on the way again..but its still cooler than it was and thats a break for now.. I have errands to do today and I am taking Bert to lunch after I get a haircut..

I have no doubt that the kids got to where they are with some help from you.
You are a great care giver and there is no doubt about that..
I dont like flying either.. just dont sit by the window and look out that helps.
What a creative idea with those blow guns.. Another WOW Rosey.. You are Awsome.. You need to sell those..They would sell...
Thank-you for your prayers for Buddy..Have a good weekend :love: :wave:

Donna...Thank-you for you prayers for Buddy..Yes you are right about the human spirt..but it sure is hard at times wondering why all this stuff happens to such wonderful people..Thank-you again for all your support in my exercise and weight loss journey.. I am glad that you are back into your pilates.. I remember how you enjoyed doing that..I am glad that you have help with your Dad's BD party.Thats alot of work and you have been so busy with his house and all.. A Luau sounds like so much fun... Please take lots of pictures..Its a small world out there..Never know where you will run into someone you met some other place in time..Dont worry what anyone thinks about your weight..Its what you think that counts and you have had lots of stress and medical..sooooo you are getting it off and thats all that matters..
Besides that you Did it and you are doing it.. It will happen...
My Dear Sweet YAYA friend..When Elena hits those teenage years you will be ready..You are a great Mom..I had to laugh at what you said about that :lol:...Have a good weekend :love: :wave:

Thank-you for posting that and Thank-you for your prayer for Buddy..
Its so hard to make good food choices..we all have that problem at times..
Work can make that even harder..I know you are trying and thats all any of us can do..Thats great that you got right back on track..I know you will do it..When it comes to being a Mother ..Thats the hardest job in the world..I am sure that you are a great Mother and there are alot of Wonderful Moms on this thread..All of you need a BIG PAT ON THE BACK for the Great job you ALL DO..:bravo:..Have a good weekend :love: :wave:

:wave: i lost 8.4 this week :goodscale: :dance:
:) glen

05-22-2004, 03:46 PM
Wow Glen that's super. What was the "trick" this week? I have gotten scale addicted myself and weigh daily. Not good I know but did gain .5 yesterday. Saddened me too. Congrats to you though!

It's kinda hot here. 87 to be exact and we have some threat of storms. That will cool us off for a bit if we get them. Hope you all are having a great weekend. I hope to post more often after the kids finish up the wrap of the school year. They go to 11 a.m. on monday and tuesday and will be over. I had to pick logan up early yesterday with an earache so didn't get a chance to do anything else here.

Daphne let me know if you hear anymore from ann or deb o.k. Rosey have fun in anchorage and get that DH of yours to buy you a birthday present while you're gone. By the way, our walmart does have a bigger scrapbook section now. They were even putting more stamps out yesterday so check that out. :wave: to everyone else.

05-23-2004, 02:07 PM

What a nice weekend I had! After such a horrific last week it was just what I needed to start a fresh this week. On Saturday we drove out to Atlanta and went to the Zoo there. I have never been to that Zoo and enjoyed it alot. Didn't enjoy getting stuck in traffic on the way back but it was OK. Yesterday after church we went out Strawberry picking. Picked two gallons and probably ate one! LOL :lol: :rofl: But, they were sooooo good! It is very :flow1: HOT here lately and the AC downstairs is not working right. I know that is going to be big bucks! :dunno: Anyway, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised?! LOL
Dee, how was your weekend? I hope it went well. What did you do, anything exciting!? I'm sure with a toddler it can get pretty exciting! :)
Mr. Ken, WTG on your loss this past week! That is AWESOME!!!!!!!! :bravo: :bravo: :cheer: If I could do that, my troubles would be over! LOL I knew you collected match boxes, I just wondered what else besides the collecting, working and your weight loss you were involved with. You can tell me none of my bees wax if you want to! :shrug: :lol: :blah:
Summer, The BIG weekend is coming??! Are you ready? Did you buy a new swim suit? I bet you look great!
Rosey, I sure hope you have a great trip in Anchorage and not medical related! May this birthday be extra special!
Kris, What can I say.. I miss hearing from you! :write:
Daphne, How is your friend doing with her situation. I hope things will get better. How much weight have you lost now? Has things gotten better with you and Jason? I saw where you were wanting SEXERCISE to be a activity point. LOL :rofl: :lol3: :lol3: :lol: :D
Dana, Is it hot or what? LOL We got rained on at the Zoo some but not bad and it even did a quick sun shower on us while picking strawberries but nothing here. We had a lot to water last night. When are your kids out of school? Elena is out on June 4th.

I have not heard anything about Sheree and I pray she is OK. Dana, did she ever answer your email you sent her a while back?

Well, guys have a great day!

:wave: :wave:


05-24-2004, 09:48 AM
Hooray Glen! Hooray Glen I am so happy and proud of you! You get a gold star for the week. You can do it! Keep it up! :)

A little victory dance for you.....

05-24-2004, 10:25 AM
Happy Birthday to Rosey!!! May it be a very memorable and relaxing day!

No Donna, Sheree never responded to my email. I enjoyed Zoo Atlanta the times I've been. Any zoo beats Greenville or used to anyway. It may have grown since I was last there. Is it Atlanta or Columbia that has the Cyclorama? That was neat which ever it was. The only rain I"ve seen over the weekend was yesterday when me and Dh got all lotioned up to lay out in the sun in our little pool and it rained right above us and only there. It was funny cause it's like it was just for us to poop on our parade. :rofl: It only lasted 90 seconds and it thundered a lot yesterday evening but nothing else.

My kids go for another 1 1/2 hours today and just to 11 a.m. again tomorrow for their last day of school. When they get out in a little bit, we're going to my grandmothers. Well hope yall have a great monday.

05-24-2004, 03:21 PM
Hello Everyone... Its another hot one today.. Jim had his Colonoscopy and everything is Fine Thankgoodness.. He was so hungry and insisted on going to breakfast but when we got there he could not eat to much cause he was so bloated from the gas they gave him.. I got a doggie bag and brought him home..Then awhile later he threw-up what he did eat and said he felt somewhat better..but atleast he is Ok..
I am doing laundry and the cable guy is coming to fix our cable.. The picture keeps freezing up.. Wierd...We have digitial cable so I dont know whats wrong with it.. They are calling for rain this afternoon and it looks like it might just do that..I have a bet with alot of the pool people here that it will rain opening pool day ( This Saturday )..I am sure it will happen.. It has rained on opening day for the last 10 years or more..:lol:..So we shall see..
Well got to run and ccheck on the patient..

I know what you mean about traffic.. Thats anywhere you go now days there is always traffic traffic...

He will be so touched again that you sent him a card.. God Bless you Daphne for caring and all your prayers for him....Thank-you so very much for sending him a card... Thank-you for all your kindness and being a very special person and friend..
I am sure that your house will look so good. I cant wait to see pictures...

05-26-2004, 09:05 AM
A HUGE THANK YOU to Rosey for finding out about Sheree. I am relieved that she is ok now. It would of been nice for her to have let us know so we would not worry any more about her but I can see how life can get very busy with our families. Also Rosey I am glad you had such a good birthday and great weekend last weekend. Enjoy your "ME" time for a change for you surely deserve it!

Dee, I hope your not posting isn't because you have become discouraged. Here is a great place to refresh your encouragement. :)

{{{Daphne}}} You were so thoughtful for sending Buddy another card! It brought tears to my eyes that I am among such thoughtful and caring people here on this thread! I hope you are not inhaling too much paint... LOL I am wanting to paint our bedroom. How is it going? How much weight have you lost? Be careful not to over do it and develop tennis elbow! :lol: :rofl: :lol3: :rolleyes:

Summer, I'm glad that finally Jim was able to have his test done. When do you talk to the doctor about the results? My Jim had his yearly echo cardiogram done last Monday. Afterwards, he decides to take the day off which explains my absense on Monday. LOL It's amazing how they can mess a day up! LOL I would rather be messed up really. :) ;) We will hear about those results soon.

Dana, what are your plans for the summer? When are you all going to the beach this year? How is scrapbooking central? We are doing a small one for my Dad for the big birthday party which is slowly creeping up on us. The pool is coming along nice and SLOW! LOL It's going to be HUGE though. It's a L shaped pool and it has a swim up feature in the deep end of 8 feet. Very nice. My Dad uncovered his pool the other day and it was horrible. Jim and Elena helped him. It was clear that the new cover did not help keep things out. The algae was very thick and green. :yuck:

Kris, when you can let us know how you are.

Mr. Glen/Ken thank you for keeping the :cb: out looking for us when we are missing! :mag: I hope your upcoming weigh in is as good as the last. What kind of exercise do you do?

What are everyones plans for this weekend? I KNOW what Summers is! LOL And that sounds sanfrantastic! :cp: :cp: :hat: I am thinking about inviting some friends over for a cook out on Monday. Some people we haven't seen in a while. I may also invite my Dad since he will be alone. As far as the other days of the weekend, Jim wants to clean out the garage... UGH! LOL :rolleyes:

Well, have a good Wednesday everyone and I'll check in later.

Not sure I can write as lengthy of a post as Donna but thought I would drop a line. Donna when I was growing up, we had a pool and the cover didn't do much for it any year. I'm sure it helped a bit but never seemed like it. It was always a dreaded time of year yet we were so eager to clean it up and start using it. Our pool is only a 10 foot pool that's 3 feet deep but we love it terribly and it serves the purpose- to cool off! No plans for me this weekend. I have races to watch of course on TV and probably church on sunday. This is DH's weekend to work but he will have monday off. Maybe we can cook out something.

Rosey thank you so much for finding sheree and discovering she was ok. Did she mention this site? I know what it is to be busy but now that the kids are out of school for the summer here, I hope to be able to post when I want and not be so tied up on the road doing everything. We will go get groceries tomorrow as a family which will be funny and then no one can blame me for not getting something they wanted. Of course we will have restrictions in the buggy for I do not want to see a doubled grocery bill.

Summer I hope that you have a blast in the pool this year. Be careful not to burn!! Have you weighed this week? I was getting so discouraged with 1/2 a pound and then I gained 1 pound this week only to lose 1 1/2 pounds over night. Now I am back to a lower number that I haven't seen in years. So now I've lost 13 pounds since may 1st but I only hope that i can keep it up over the summer with the kids home.

Nothing really much to report here. Today is the first full day of summer break for the kids. They ended their school year yesterday. So far it isn't too bad. We all take turns in the pool and watching tv and all. DH will be home the next 2 days. He's bidded on another job at the plant that will get him away from the stuff he's been working around that's damaging his health. He got another lead test result yesterday and it jumped from 6 to 12 in less than 2 weeks. The doctor in the hospital told him that any number needed to be gotten rid of and the only way to truly do it is to eliminate yourself from the exposure which is his entire 12 hour day job. As long as it stays under 40, it's legal but any of it is dangerous. That all contributed to him being in the hospital the other week. He had an interview for the new job today. He's one of 10 to possibly get it. It's a salary job and it's in the lab at the plant. He will make more money on it and have better benefits which is good since he's been there 9 years which is longer than the majority of them. The thing I don't like is he will work 8 hour days and not have the days in between off anymore. Which means I will have to get the kids to 4 appointments in june by myself if he gets the new job. I know i have to give up certain things for him to be healthier on his job but I just wish if he got it that it wouldn't happen until july.

Well I need to do a few things around here before I do anymore leisure things. I hope you all have a blessed wednesday.

By the way rosey, did you watch Idol? i still want fantasia to run away with the title of IDOL!

05-26-2004, 12:50 PM
Good morning!

I wanted to take a minute and say hi to all and let you know what is going on here. Classes started last night. I have 3 this summer. I will definitely need a break after they ae done in August! DH starts school on Tuesday. He starts after me and gets out before me. I don't think that is fair, do you? :nono:

We are going to Winston-Salem NC this weekend to visit friends. They are both doctors and working on their residency. I think that this is the only time Dh and I will ever be richer than our doctor friends! :lol: They don't make anything at all during their residencies.

We are coming back on Sunday and my MIL is coming Sunday night to visit until Tuesday night, so...

We are getting ready for our trip to the UK and Italy. It should be fun. I am just getting stressed out thinking about it! I have tons of laundry to do!

That's all of the time I have.

Love to all...


05-26-2004, 04:37 PM
Dana, I have to say that you and I BOTH will never be able to post as long posts as our sweet YA YA sister Summer does! :) :lol: I wish that it would just rain today it keeps looking like it huh? Glad there is something else DH can do for his health. Yes, there will be adjustments but it is worth it.

Kris, So glad to hear from you!! I wish you the best in your three classes you are taking this summer. By this August you are definately going to need that break! Good thing you have your European Vacation in between! BTW, Is Chevy going with ya? If so... better stay home. LOL :lol: :rofl:

I have not been able to keep up with Idol this season. I wish I could of but the TV belongs to my dh and he doesn't watch that show. We have another TV but it's in the playroom and if I go in there I'll be tempted to pick up Elena's mess. LOL Trying to get my DD all chances to do it herself. LOL

I did not weigh this morning. I am in denial. :( :cry:

Dee, :mag: :cb: :cb: we are sending the guys out to look for ya!

Need to go now. Have a good afternoon everyone! :wave:

05-26-2004, 07:19 PM
This is the second time I have tried to post and my computer is running super slow. So unfortunately I may forget what I said in the last post and I have no time left for this one. Sorry :mad: Anyway, don't send out the dogs I am here. Right now I am here and aggravated. It has been a horrible week. I never get even two minutes of peace. Just a little time to myself and noone here seems to understand that. I don't meen to complain. I am just sick of not being able to spend any time doing what I want. I don't ask for a lot. But you wouldn't know that by the way people act around here.

So, I am discouraged but that is not why I haven't been posted. i didn't lose and I wish that I had just not even weighed myself. I stayed the same and I have just had it. I truly have to starve myself if I want to lose and I am very honest about my calorie intake. So... I will stay at 1000 calories for the next couple of weeks and see what that does.

Happy bday Rosey, sorry I missed it mon. I could never get to the computer.

It sounds like everyone is starting to get ready for summer. It is a great time of the year. I even like it 110.

I am sorry to make this so short but the baby is screaming her little head off so I have to go. I will try to get in later and get caught up on all of the latest. Maybe I wont have my post erased this time. Grrr..


05-27-2004, 01:10 AM
Hello Everyone..

They have been saying that it wil be a nice sunny 80 degrees we shall see...I am excited..
I am looking forward to visting with all the pool people.. I feel funny sometimes referring to them as "The Pool People"..but usually the only time I see them durring the year is at the pool or at a Board meeting here..So I guess thats why I call them that...They are a great group of people.
They have a suprise instore for Jim to welcome him back after all he has been through..No one will tell me what they are I have to wait and see too... I though that was so nice of them..
I have errands tomorrow and trying to finish cleaning and I hope that I can find some recipes for some diet snacks...

Thank-you for letting us all know about Sheree.. I am glad that she is doing good.. I wish her Well...Have a great evening and enjoy your time :love: :wave:

Donna.... I think I posted before that Jim was told the day of the procedure that everything was good.. A normal Colon.. When we go to the PC Dr in a couple weeks he will have the complete report and tell us all it says.. The Dr that did the procedure was kind enough to tell us that Jim was fine. I was so relieved to hear that..I hope you get his results of the cardiogram soon??..I know what you mean about the guys being home. Jim got sick Monday from the gas they I couldnt do my normal stuff..He was in bed and I couldnt really do anything cause he was sleeping..He got real sick and threw-up..I am so glad that he was all better Tuesday..
I am sure you will have a fun BBQ with Friends on Monday..That will be so nice to see friends you havent seen in awhile and I thats great that you are inviting your Dad. He needs to have family and friends around him durring this difficult time..You all enjoy and have lots of fun
:cheers: :gossip:

I wasnt out in the sun at all last year..Jim and I are looking forward to being at the pool and gettting a tan this year..I know that its hard to post everyday when you have a family to take care of and all that you do with thwm everyday..I hope that you enjoy your summer vacation and do some things YOU want to do..
I hope that your hubby gets the job he wants so his lead level will go down.. I never knew that his job put him in contact with lead..Unreal...

05-27-2004, 11:28 AM
{{{DEE}}}Bless your heart! I can definately feel your pain but Rosey and Summer have hit it on the head. You HAVE to eat to lose and stress can be a diet killer. I am it's number one victom lately. :( As for the family not appreciating you I am so sorry. I wish I could come over there and knock some sense in their heads but there again I can't. :sorry: You know it is so much easier to deny yourself everything thinking that is the only thing you can do to lose the weight than to really sit down and make good choices. I need to remember those words that I preach. :lol: Also remember as you exercise you are developing your muscles which weigh more. But, it's better to have that definition than that fatty cellulite. LOL Again.. Need to make notes.... :write: :write: You can do this, Dee. Hang in there, take a deep breath and try not to get to concerned about what the scale is showing right now. It WILL happen! I promise you!!!

Rosey, Dana and Summer I am so very proud of all three of your accomplishments. You guys are doing so good!! :bravo: :bravo:

Summer, that is so nice of the *pool people* to do something extra for Jim!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!!! :cp: Those storms must of been really bad. We haven't gotten one drop of rain. Some wind but that's it. It's been so very hot.

You all have a great day. I need to get dressed and to the store.


Donna :coffee:

05-27-2004, 05:06 PM
ugh!!!!! No One Has Been Here Since I!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

05-27-2004, 05:27 PM
Hello everyone, Thank you all so much for your kind words and support. Of course a good nights sleep and a little talk with DH about how important it is for everyone living in this house that I get some time to journal and just have quiet me time and today is a much better day. Thank you guys though for being so sweet.

Dana :wave: Congratulations on your loss. Yay! And I was also pulling for Fantasia, I didn't get to watch it but caught it later on the news that she won. She definately deserved it.

Kris :wave: I love your Yoda quote. I saw it somewhere on here a few weeks ago and thought that was great. Now I know who had it. I am making a poster for my little boy with that.

Summer :wave: Were you in the middle of all of those storms I saw on the news? Do you get tornados there? Congratulations on your 16 pounds. How exciting. Yay!!!!!

Rosey :wave: Congratulations on your 2 pounds. that is a great loss. Also congratulations to your kids all making honor roll. That is wonderful. How satisfying.

Donna :wave: I am here now posting and just saw your new post!!! tee hee! I'm a slow poster. :lol: :high: Anyhow, I hope you enjoy your bbq on monday, it sounds great. And, I'm taking notes on your pep talk so I can use it for you someday since we seem to be in the same boat. :thanks:
I really appreciate it. How has your day been? Did you go shopping?

Well, I have done really well for two days now. And I am drinking all of my water which I have not been doing. And I kept reviewing the past two weeks and thinking I had done so great when I realized that there were 8 days in 14 that I didn't even keep track of what I ate. so I guess that would be where the problem lays. He he he. So, my challenge is that when I work this weekend I don't drop the ball again. I am going to try soooo hard to really be aware of what I am doing no matter how tired I am I still don't want to over eat. This is my plan. wish me luck.

Well, I have to get my little boy from school in a few minutes. and the baby is waking. So I will go. All of you take care and I will check in soon.


05-27-2004, 07:10 PM
Hi everyone.. just a quick post so donna doesnt feel so lonely :lol: but have been busy cleaning.. its amazing how much clutter i have around me.. sometimes i have to look at my house like i was a stranger.. :fr: :stress: :yikes: :lol: so that about explains it..will check in later everyone..rosey :wave:

05-28-2004, 12:33 AM
Hope you all had a good day. I had to say goodnight and tell you that I did really good today. I am not going to starve myself though, you are right Rosey. So, I made cookies with my little boy and I had the smallest one made just for me. Then I put them up and haven't thought of them since. Tomorrow night I will take them to work and everyone there can gobble them up. We just make them for the fun but noone here needs them anyway. And I drank 94 oz. of water. So I am very happy. I think I have gotten over my crisis. Thanks for listening. I can't wait to get a pounds lost chick by my name like Donnas.

You all take care. I don't know if I will be back till next week but I will try so I don't get too behind on what is going on. Wish me luck at work. I am determined to stick to my calorie counting no matter what this weekend.

Bye, Dee :D

05-28-2004, 09:40 AM
Dee, I am glad you had a good day yesterday. I hope if you are not able to get on here over the weekend that you have a good weekend and I'm glad you had that chat!

Quickly, I wanted to post GOOD MORNING! I hope you all have a good day. :D :wave:

05-28-2004, 05:00 PM
Donna, Thanks!! You have a great weekend. Have fun bbqing. I love bbq and I think it can be low fat. Maybe we will have to do that too. I'm doing okay today but the boat is rocky. I will do it though because I am trying to be VERY aware of what I'm thinking AND eating this weekend.

I saw on the group above this one just "support" and old friend of yours donna1 had come back and restarted one of your old threads. If you didn't see it you will have to check it out. I'm sure she would love to hear from you.

Anyway, you all take care, Have lots of fun. Celebrate summer and 3 day weekends. Yay!!


05-28-2004, 06:13 PM

Hi there I have my Angelbaby here with me so i am not posting. I have tot ake Tony back tomorrow so that is a bummer but I have him here for now. The kids here go to school until the 18th so that is good for me! I hope your hair settles down a bit Rosey!:lol: I also wanted to let ya all know that Deb was back in the hospital again with her pancrease. She went back in Tuesday I belive it was. I haven't talked to her in last few days so I am not sure where she is at this time. The weather is supposed to start gettting bettar again so I hope it does. I plan on getting outside a but more and work on the yard somewhat.
PS still gaining and not able to stop eating. I am depressed and thinking that life sucks here lately. I will be better when stuff sellles down again.

05-30-2004, 10:34 PM
Donna I like that chick. Where did you find it? Cute!! Did you get some rain today? We woke up to a thunderstorm which turned into heavy rain before moving on.

Rosey I'm sure your hair will be grown out and calmed down quite a bit in no time if it grows as fast as mine. Hope you enjoy and win big at bingo! We just aren't too good at getting plants to grow around here. Some people have green thumbs but not me and dh. :lol:

Summer can't wait to hear all about the pool. Hope you guys had better weather than we're having today. I'm having TOM so the clouds and rain are totally fine with me. We need the rain anyway.

Daphne I hope something happens for deb that will get her better and out of the hospital. I just don't understand what is going wrong with her. Take care of tony and let me know what you hear about deb.

Well I keep losing my post so I am going to end for tonight. Have a great memorial day and I'll try again tomorrow.

05-31-2004, 06:01 AM
OK it it is 2 AM and I am off to bed after watching DVDs with Tony. I am wanting to throw up and cry. I don't wanna give Tony back. I hate life at times and wished I was dead so I didn't have to feel this pain. I am crying now and can't stop. I have to suck it up and be happy I had him this weekend. I love my Angelbaby so much I hate not having him more. Love ya all,

Hello Everyone...I have had a great weekend..Rain and all..It Was a Beautiful Saturday for the pool opening..but it rained Sunday and Monday
Everyone was there Saturday and alot of new people too..
I have to tell you what they did for Jim.. They decorated a pool chair with balloons and made it look like a throne of sorts.. That was Jim's chair to sit in.
They gave him some gifts..A new pool raft and some beach towels..and a new 50 qt. cooler on wheels.. We always bring the ice for drinks every year and everyone uses are ice..Jim gets it from a place near us..They have a huge ice machine so he goes there and fills our coolers up before we go to the pool.. Its alot to drag up to the pool all time but we do it.. They gave him that cooler to make things easier for him..Then they gave him a gift certificate for a massage..WOW ...I was so touched by all of thier kindness. Jim was too.. I could tell he was so choked-up..We had a wonderful time and everyone there was so happy to see us..It was like old times.. We even played a few cards..but mainly talked and got some sun.. Yes we both got a little burnt but we are fine.. Just our shoulders..its from sitting and talking..
They had made all this food..but they knew we were trying to they made salads and cheese tray and alot more healthy stuff..
They were wonderful to do all of this for us..and especially Jim..

Summer thank you so much for caring about me.I always get sad when I have to give my Angel baby back. On my way home yesterday I had a *fit*. I feel like I have been sucked into a vacumn and all my air is being squeezed out of me. My hearing starts to leave me and it is like I hear everything in a hollow sounding way. I am better now but wanted to say thank you for your concern about it.
I think that was just to sweet what they did for Jim! Someone put a lot of thought and caring into it for both of you. I am sorry about the rain but you are a pool person at last!I am sure you will take the rain now over how it was a year ago!
Rosey thank you also for your caring about my sadness. Like I told Summer I am better now I just can't dwell on it. What plants are you buying now? I had to buy more potting soil at Walmart today. Now I have to go and buy more plants!:cp::cp::cp: I also bought 2 new tomato cages. I can not believe how much they are. Do you plant any vegetables up there? I have tomatoes, strawberries, a pepper plant and some lettuce.
Donna I want to thank you as well for my hug. I really needed it when I saw that. It made me smile and relax a bit. How was your weekend? DId you have a bbq? How was Eleana doing? What med is she on may I ask? They are switching Robert to a new one now. It starts with an M.
Dana where are you woman? How did the testing go for Brett? How is Kevin doing? Did he hear any more ont he job?

06-01-2004, 05:27 PM
OK I didn't want to lose my post. My weekend was OK. Robert is really pushing both Jason and I. He is told to do something and he will sit there and argue with us. I had asked him like 4 times to get his stuff out of the dryer and he openly refused. I was pissed being as I needed to use it so I threw his stuff on the floor. It layed there all dang day. Jason finally realised what the deal was and jumped him about it. Robert was picking fights with Tony and being so rude to me that Tony was ready to beat the crap out of him. I really am at the end of my line with that little brat. He is claiming now that he will not behave until he gets his new meds. He said he can't because he needs the new meds. Megan will not stop spitting and saying F*** You. She spits so bad that she soaks her clothing, her bedding, pillow, the floor everything. I was in tears over having to deal with it this summer. I was ready to leave Jason and the kids Sunday with all the attitudes. Yeah Jason is even jealous of Tony. I am sorry but I get my Tony so little that when I have him here I am all his. What he wants he gets, and we go off and play, talk, etc alone. We even layed on my bed and watched a movie so I was able to stay away from Robert.
I am back to working on losing my fat again. I am posting on fitday now and that seems to work the best and is free. OK I have written a novel so I will just say Buh bye!!!!!!! Post soon ya'all!

Hi everyone..its so pretty out..this is our best weather time.. i am still planting.. we planted apple trees.. roses bushes..and my planters..mostly all colors and wave petunias and double ruffle petunias..snap dragons..diasies..mission wedding bells..marigolds..and others i dont know what they are.. i just liked them..i have 7 big planters on the deck and 3 hanging planters.. and the rose garden.. with roses we purchased and wild roses all in a circle around a big tree..the apple trees are apples yet.. its an experiment :lol: some things you cant grow here cuz of the short growing season.. we used to do a big garden and also green house for tomotoes etc..but all that work and we ended up giving most of it no vegies..cheaper to buy from produce trucks..summer thats so neat what they did for your jim..sounds like you had a swell time..daphnee sounds like you had apanic sorry you are sad but you seem to be handling it well((((((hugs))))))..donna..hows it going with elana home.. are you keeping busy??dana whats up at your house?? hello to mr ken and kris..dee..hope you found some you time this weekend..well lots to do today esp house blessing..((((hugs for all ))))))) rosey :wave:

06-01-2004, 06:35 PM
Daphne, I was so glad to hear something from you since that last post when you were so distraught. I agree with Rosey, you have been having panic attacks. I'm sorry that Robert is being so difficult. Is he on Metadate? Elena's been on that before. She is on Ritalin LA and Focalin. Those both have helped her with her attention but her anxieties are more lately. We just went to a new doctor last week and she was put through some extensive tests. We go back in a couple of weeks for the results. I wish you could get a "Ed" that we have that comes to see Elena every couple of weeks. He is a child behavior therapist and works best I think with children like Robert. Sounds like Robert needs some couseling soon or it's only going to get worse I'm afraid. :( I'm glad my *hug* to you helped some. That's all I could say. When you are hurting so bad for someone sometimes words are not the best thing. Hugs do best. :) :love:
Summer, WTG!! :cp: :bravo: That was some surprise for Jim and yourself! You are very fortunate to be living there. I know you doubt it when it rains and the plumbing goes out on you! :rofl: BUT... your neighbors are sure special and I can tell it wasn't the same without you two with them last summer for you were definately missed! It's just what Jim needed and you for all you have been through to see him so honored. :)
Rosey, your garden sounds beautiful. We planted some tomato, pepper and strawberries as well along with some new plants and my screened in porch I have a new wicker set and a new fern. ( I killed the last one) I love roses. Someone on the journals posted the prettiest rose. It was a white rose and it was so full and pretty. I could smell the aroma and she lives in Australia! LOL ;) Elena is still in school till Friday. Today they had the third grade class awards program. Elena received a ribbon for being on the A/B's honor roll this last nine weeks and also the most improved overall! I was so proud of her. :) :D Next week she will start going to Terrific Tuesdays at the church. I am still working on getting her enrolled in a kids acting workshop and horse back or swim lessons. Can't decide which one. It depends on the cost.
Dee, how was your weekend? What did you do exciting?
Dana, I stole that avatar from someone elses I saw on the site. I looked to see if they were posted on the avatar list but they weren't. I don't know where they got them because I have seen chicks of different weight amounts posted. I should erase it because I have gained 5 of those 30 pounds back. :(
Kris, I miss you and I appreciate your sweet entry in my journal. :) :love:
Our weekend was nice. We grilled out on Sunday night with our friends and just did our own thing yesterday.
Glen, how was your weigh in?
Well, need to end and wake up Jim who is snoring up a storm in the recliner and it's only 5:30. :D :lol: :lol3:

06-02-2004, 02:05 PM
Hello Everyone... Its a beautiful day today..but yesterday it was a bad storm..Electric went out and wind was blowing wild and trees went down..It was scarey for awhile but it finally ended..It was worse south of us..
I hope that we dont get anymore of those storms anytime soon..
I am doing left over laundry from yesterday and cleaning..Thats never ends.
I have water class tonight and plenty to do..Times just flies..

Daphne....You are so very welcome..I know its so hard to have limited time with a loved one...I am so glad that you had a wonderful vist with him..
It is something how are bodies react to stress..It sounds like a panic attack just like Rosey and Donna said..I am glad it passed..
I am so happy you are better...Its so hard to raise children and with medical probs on top of sounds like Robert is a BIG handful...I am sure all the other Mom's here can help you with some suggestions...
My hat is off to you and all you do..You are amazing..It so hard to cope at times....but you are a very strong woman and I know that you can do it.....I am glad that you are doing your diet again..I know that will make you feel better..How is Deb doing?? Hope that she is better..Ihave her in my prayers.
Just know I am here with everyone else and we all Care very much about you..:grouphug:..Always..:grouphug:
Much :love: to you Sweetie :wave:

Rosey...All your planting and yard and trees I bet its a beautiful site.
Please try to take some pictures so we all can see..I can imagine that it was alot of work to keep up a garden of size..No wonder you all decided to buy produce instead of growing it..Yes the pool people were so sweet to do that for Jim.. We both were so touched by thier kindness..We had a wonderful time...Did you do curves this week?? I know that I will be so soar cause I missed Monday..but that ok I will be fine..I do miss it..Strange huh..:lol: :wave:

Donna....You are so right.. I complain about the plumbing and all tat goes on here but I would not trade the people here for anything.They are a great group of people..Jim was so touched by it all.. It was wonderful..One of them took alot of pictures only to find out that she did something wrong and no pictures turned out.. She called me today and was so upset..I told her dont worry that there will be other times.. It was ashame cause I wanted a picture of Jim on his throne..:lol:... I am so proud of Elena being on the honor roll..and most improved..Thats wonderful...Sounds like you are getting her activities all lined up for summer break..Thats great..I am sure she will have a wonderful time where-ever she goes..Thanks to her wonderful Mom..I love that avatar..It soo cool.. No dont erase it cause.... you will lose it..
I know you can..I wish they would make a avatar like that so we could use it..I bet your little garden will bring alot of good veggies.. I bet your screened in room looks wonderful with that new wicker furniture...and plants and all..... Pictures please...I wish I could have one here..but no room..I dont have a green Jim plants our flowers..
I just am the helper.. :lol:..I dont have good luck with plants I either over water or underwater..what can I say..:lol:..:wave:

Dana..Where are you today??? I miss you...
I am sure you are busy doing things with the children..
Did your hubby get that new job???
Hope you are having good weather so you can enjoy your pool... :mag: :wave:

Kris...Mr Ken....Dee.....Where are you all?????? I miss you all

06-02-2004, 11:45 PM
Ok now about that tumble weed.. as every one knows i have had a rough year..esp with all the doctoring for both me and my times it was so overwhelming that i thought i was going to explode into a zillion pieces..but try and explain that to people when they wonder why you are grumpy and zombie like feeling sad and day iwas watching a nat geographic speacial about this sea coast off of africa where the winds are so strong that the animals have a tuff time walking on the beach.. there was this little gekhco trying to survive the winds and along blew a tumble weed.. well this poor little critter grabbed on thinking he was safe and he went bouncing down the beach over and over.. and i thought to my self thats how i feel.. im just a little gekhco hanging on to my tumble weed and i have used that saying alot.. now i dont feel like that very often any more.. but thought you all could see the parallel and humor in it.. so when things get tough just hang on to your tumble weed :lol: rosey:wave:

06-03-2004, 10:35 AM
There are things you can do with bad knees, Mr. Ken. Pilates, swimming, yoga, these are all good to strengthen your muscles and but yet be non damaging to your joints. Have you spoken to your doctor about what he/she suggests you do? Because we all know that diet and exercise goes hand in hand. :) :strong: :goodscale
Rosey, I love your tumble weed story. I have been feeling like my tumbleweed has been falling apart! :lol: :lol: :D No, you sure have been through a huge storm and I'm glad that because of what you went through you can help those who are there now. Good luck on that card order! :)
Summer, MAN! I hate that you have NO pictures! No one else was taking any? OH MAN! :( :( :stress:
I am truly sorry for Buddy. I have been praying for him.
Dana??????? OH DANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cb: :cb: :cb: This isn't like you to be gone so long. I'm getting very concerned.
DEE???!?!?! How are you doing sweetie? I am concerned about you too. :)
Daphne? I hope you are feeling some better and the new medicine for Robert is helping things. Behavior modification and the medicine works best together. I'm so sorry for your problems. Hang on to your tumbleweed! :)
Kris, I know you must be busy again with school. I hope you are doing well and getting all excited about your up-coming trip to Europe. :write: when you can.
I have better get some thing accomplished now. My bills are starring at me and I've been catching up on posts for he last 40 minutes! LOL
Have a great day every one!

06-03-2004, 02:28 PM
I am here and doing better thanks ya all. I am going to take some pictures of the new paint job and my plants. I love Helitrope now. It is like my favorite plant. I have 6 of them now and they are costly like $2.50 or so. Robert still hasn't start the new med Donna the pharmacy had to order it and it hasn't got here yet and yes it is Metadate. He also will see a behavior specialist starting the 10th. It wont do much good yet being as he is going to Cali for a month and wont be seeing the therapist then. I need a break from him though. Ihad potato salad and it made me sick. I can't stay off the pot. I will post more laters,

06-03-2004, 07:26 PM
Well I had a knock on my door and guess what, it was :cb: :cb: :cb: looking for me! :rofl: Anyway, didn't realize it had been 4 days since I posted but the big reason is these darn pop ups that end up freezing my screen to the point of having to re-boot it. I have the bellsouth pop-up blocker on but it can't catch them all. it's truly unreal and don't know why it happens so badly now. it looks like IP's good stop it for nothing. Anyway, nothing new here. I had to keep my nephew today and of course 3 boys together gets on anyones nerves when they won't mind you. I volunteered to keep him one day a week and thank goodness that won't happen again until tuesday.

We had to carry brett to his diabetes specialist yesterday and had to leave here 6 in the morning to make the 7:15 app't and ended up sitting in a room until 8 due to a new diagnosed child in there and they have to make way for them. We went through it with brett last summer so we understood but DH was getting irritated with laken not wanting to stay in waiting room that long. They weren't pleased with his progress and we knew that was coming. Next friday we have to go back for a 90 minute class on a new insulin he's going on. It's suppose to help control sugar better but he will have to have a shot prior to eating anything including any snacks he may want. Then after that, we have to go back in another month to see how his progress is.

Daphne, you're on pot now?? My we should be concerned! :lol: I do remember what you go through when robert comes back from cali. but I think more importantly right now, you need the break. Maybe his therapy can start when he comes back if that's not too far off. I don't see too much reason as to why to go once or twice to only miss a month. only my 2 cents worth though.

Summer you had a bang of a party over the weekend didn't you? That was awesome what they did for Jim. And the thing with pictures is pittiful. No one had a digital? They are just so inexpensive for a lot of them to not get some pictures. Will you be "pooling" during the week now? it's real cloudy here today and looks like storms but so far not. Dh wanted to go camping tomorrow when he comes in from work and stay until monday morning. Don't know yet if we will but have to decide soon. How is buddy doing today? He's still in my thoughts and prayers as well.

Donna, our schools doesn't start honor roll stuff until 4th grade here but brett has never had it. I think logan has a good chance with it. He doesn't struggle as bad with school as brett does but we'll see how 4th is. That is great that elena made that much progress this year considering your concerns you had early in the year. Something worked didn't it? Also she's growing up. Sad to realize though isn't it. Logan got the most improved in his class last year. Thanks for finding me. I had been reading each day but when trying to post, it ate it and froze up. I'm highlighting and copying this ever so often so I won't lose majority of it. I guess your last day of school is tomorrow?? Dh's nephew goes to that school in 2nd grade but we just don't talk to them much since they moved to Fountain Inn. I haven't seen them since christmas actually.

Rosey that was a neat story of the tumble weed and we certainly all have been hanging on to them at one time or the other and I felt like I was today so thanks for that story. Wow 300 cards would take me forever. I make about 5 or 10 most days but my hangup right now is waiting on some envelopes. I ran across some pastel colors on Office yesterday that was clearanced. They were $3 something for 60 of them but it was colors like pink, purple, beige, yellow and 2 other colors. You can buy them at walmart but you only get gray, beige, yellow and blue so the pink and purple ones are neat. I have been selling a good bit of them and have some to put on ebay but my batteries are dead in the camera and can't find any no where here to power it up. Congrats on that loss but in inches and pounds. You are awesome!

Glen, donna is right especially on that pilates stuff. It's pretty much just stretches and you can do the gentle kind or work harder for an hour. I was doing the 20 minute workout but when me and brett went on that Tenn/Alabama trip the other week, I fell off that wagon. I have found that watching carbs works for me in the weight loss though and it's not a fast loss so maybe it will last.

Dee, I hope you are doing ok and can post when you have a moment to catch your breath! Is your older child still in school there?

Well It's only 35 minutes until Dh gets home so better tidy up or he will be ticked!

06-04-2004, 12:47 AM
Hello Everyone... Today was another gorgous day.. Blue skys and nice the 80's...I had alot of errands to do and I am helping a friend with getting some things organized in her home office.. She is a pack rat and it is endless paper work..I thought I was bad about paper work :lol:..she tops me..and thats saying something...:lol:
I am going to Costco tomorrow and Walmart for household supplys..
I cant decide on what to get for next weeks dinners.. I have a awful time with a menu..It seems like all we eat is Chicken and salad.. I have to have some variety somewhere..:lol:..Its a real challenge to make good choices..
I got to the grocery Store on Sundays and I get food for the weeks dinners..
Its easier on me because of water class..Its just hard trying to fix something easy and stick to the diet.. really not much to choose from..
Went to class tonight.. It was good..It seems like more people are coming to Water Class now.. I dont know cause its summer time or what..but that pool is getting crowded...but its fun..
I will be checking to see if Buddy came home today. I called him at the hospital this morning ans he said he was better and that his fever broke and he hopes that the Dr will let him go home.. I dont know if that happened or not..but I will check on him tomorrow.. God Bless all you :angel:'s out there for all your prayers for a very wonderful guy...

Mr Ken.. Thank-you for your kind concern and get well wishes for Buddy.
I appreciate it..I know how you feel about knee pain..But its like everyone has said in here..Some forms of exercise can be easy on your knees and actually help them..Please ask your Dr about it and see what they say..There are exercises that you can do from a chair and thats why I take Water Arerobic classes..Its low impact on my knee joints and it really makes a difference..We have men in our class at dont let that stop you..Try it if the Dr says might like it.. I know I do..but you have to do what you are comfortable doing ..I understand that..:wave:

I am so proud of you... :encore: take a bow...
I didnt measure myself but I can tell in my clothes are not as tight...
I didnt weigh yet this week..but I will.. Thank-you so much for your concern and prayers for Buddy...I apprecaite it so very much..
I loved your tumble weed story.. I can certainly understand how you felt that way at times because of going through so very much last year..
I have had afew tumble weeds myself over the years..
I know we all have been there a time or two like Dana said..its so true..
I pray everyday that we all have healthy happy lives..
I know that your 300 card order will keep you busy but I bet you will get them finished before you know it...I hope that your DD can take some pictures of your yard.. I just know its beautiful.. I want a digital camera..we are looking into getting one and I know that someone will have to show me how to use it..:lol:...I am no good at those things...:wave:

Donna.....I am sorry that I dont have any pictures... I didnt take a throw-away camera cause our friend was taking pictures with her I figured that would be better pictures.. Everyone thought the same.. we all were disapointed.. I really want those ones of Jim sitting on his throne..:lol:
She was so upset..I still not sure what she did wrong..but.there will be another time and we are looking into buying a digital one..I will need big time help learning how to use it.. :lol: Thank-you so much for all your concern and prayers for Buddy..I appreciate so very much..I hope you got your bills done.. I really dont like that job but its always there..:lol:...:wave:

Dana...I am so glad that the guys found you at home..:lol: I am so sorry that you are having that prob in here.. Can you tell Suzanne about that...maybe there is something wrong in here??? I have
" I Hate Popups" and it seems to work.. I guess...When I first come in here they pop pop pop..then they go I dont know.. It so flustrating to lose your post and why did 3FC start all these pop-up things anyway??
Its always something..Our pool opens at 4:00 till 8:00 M-F..Sat & Sun
11:00am till 8:00pm.. When school gets out here on the 18th of June they will open it at 11:00am everyday..So I am not going yet.. I am waiting on school to be out.. Next year hopefully it will open Memorial Day and stay open like all the other private pools in our area...We are going on the weekends if the weather is good..I wil be glad when it opens full time and when it does..I will be there... I am glad that you are having good weather and I hope that if you all go camping....Have a fun and safe trip..
Thank-you for all your concern and prayers for Buddy.. I appreciate it so much..I hope he got to come home today..but I have to call him tomorrow to find out..
I am sorry that Brett's Sugar needs more regulating..Poor Litttle Guy.. I sure hope that the new insulin helps him.. I wish that he didnt have to have so many needles everyday..I know that will hard on him...I feel so bad for him..
It so hard on children having to sit and wait..Thats so hard to do...It sounds like they all are doing great in school..Thats wonderful and you are the reason for that... You are a great Mother....
How is your Grandparents doing??? I hope that all is well in your family.. :wave:

Daphne..I am so glad you are doing better Sweetie.. All your plants sound so nice.. I cant wait to see your pictures...I am also happy that you are getting a break.. I know that you need that.. Its so hard to give up things we like to eat.I had to laugh at Dana saying..Are you on Pot now..:rofl:..that was tooooo funny...I love potatoes also and its hard..You will get on a roll soon Sweetie.. its been to hard right now with all thats going on in your life.. I can understand completly....We ALL Can..Thank-you for all your kind concern and prayers for Buddy..I appreciate it so much..Again I am so glad that you are better Sweetie.. :grouphug: How is Deb doing??? :wave:

Today is no rain but real cloudy..I have alot of things to do...I am going ot see Bert and take her for a haircut..She needs one bad..prob go to lunch after that..
I am taking care of my neighbors cats..she went to the beach for 2 weeks..

I have to get home and do the usual laundry and cleaning...before water class tonight.. I will weigh-in today.. :goodscale ... I have my fingers :crossed: and hope for the best..So we shall see...

Rosey.. WOW.. :cheer: You Go Girl.. :cp: :cp: I know that you were so tickled when you put on those jeans..It had to feel so good...
I am so happy for you..I am so Proud of You..
I am doing the same thing with a pair of jean shorts and a pair of jeans..
I check them every couple weeks.. I cant wear them yet but I amtrying to get I can finally fit into them.. I have really done something.. I know that you have worked hard and its paying off..Exercising is hard and I never thought I would stick with it.. but I know now it has helped me and I need it...I hope that you won big $$$$ at Bingo last night..How is your weather been??
Have a great day :wave:

Mr Ken.. I am sorry that you had a slight gain.. You can lose it..I know it takes time and like Rosey said if you can do some exercises sitting can really help you.. Try to do that if you can and if your Dr. says its ok...

06-07-2004, 09:51 PM
Hi guys. I found me a chick with my weight loss on it. Nothing much to report here. We did go camping and came back this morning. I have to get up at 6:30 in morning to get my nephew again. I hope this time is better than last time. Brett and Tyler nephew) ignore logan who is younger. Tyler tries not too but the 2 older ones interests are different. Rosey the loss of pounds and inches and wearing jeans are awesome. Not too mention more bingo money to top it all off! Isn't life great for you now??

Summer I'm glad that buddy came home and that you're helping poor bert out again. I forget her situation but she doesn't have family around either does she? As for my grandparents, they all are pretty well. My grandpa starts his radiation treatments on wednesday or he goes to have a mold made anyway. not sure which day he starts the treatments but he has his first visit wed. anyway. My other grandma who's DH is dead, may have diabetes herself. I checked her about 2 weeks ago and her sugar was 220. It went back down to 160 before I left but she's got me concerned that's for sure. Sorry about the pool but maybe this week will be much hotter for you! We haven't seen rain here in a couple days but it's bound to happen. We need rain though. A lot of people's grasses are dying.

Donna how is the "out of school" girl handling her first day? Needless to say, I"m already about to resort to hair pulling here. Not too bad if Dh is home. I have been meaning to ask you if you've heard anything from tracy?

DH will find out this week if he gets the Lab job he's applied for. He has another interview tomorrow and it's down to 3. They decide on friday. It will bring a little more money in and he will be on salary so if he has to miss any time, he still gets paid. He's never out but that is good insurance to fall back on if we need it.

Mine and daphne's friend deborah, came home last week and is much better. She did end up back in hospital after her initial stay for surgery on her gall bladder. She had a rough time and while she had surgery, her son was put in another hospital same day for emergency appendectomy. She had it coming from all directions but her son was brave and went through it without mom.

Well hi to everyone else. I am give out and morning will come quicker than I'm ready for. Hope you all had a good monday evening. Summer I hope your weigh in was superb! I haven't weighed since sat. morning but hope to remember in the morning.

06-08-2004, 12:37 AM
This is supposed to be me! :rofl: :lol3: :lol: :D :rofl: It's my virtual model on the Lands End web site. LOL

Friends, I'm afraid that I'm not going to be able to be very talkative this week. This is the week the falls into the big birthday party for my Dad and I'm so busy my head is literally spinning. I am working on my scrap book page and can now understand how involved Dana and Rosey's cards can be. It's amazing all the "stuff" you can get for memory books. This isn't your mamas photo album. LOL

I do care for you all but just too tired to even read the posts. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. I promise next week will be better. I am looking forward to that! LOL

Talk to you all soon.


06-08-2004, 03:29 PM

06-08-2004, 07:32 PM
Hi everyone!!! Sounds like you are all doing so well. I'm doing okay. Not so great on the diet though. I'm not eating really bad but I just haven't been keeping track because I have just been worn out and really I can't think of a good reason. But I am still very motivated to lose. I am going to get restarted tomorrow with my palm program and start keeping track of everything. I may do a fast this weekend when I am working so that I won't be tempted to make bad choices which I seem to do on the days I work. It is very aggravating to me that I am doing this. But I will just keep going and eventually I will be on a roll and not have such ups and downs hopefully. I haven't weighed myself this week and probably will postpone it until next week. I just don't want to discourage myself any more.

Rosey, Congrats on your jeans!!!! Yay! so exciting. You are inspiring me also to get out my sewing machine. I love to sew but haven't in a long time. Maybe doing some of my old hobbies would get me out of this funk I'm in lately. Anyhow, congratulations. It is very exciting.

Donna, Hope you are having a great time with your fathers birthday plans. Can't wait to hear from you again. Is your daughter out of school now? I am looking forward to having my son home for me to have him all to myself for a while. I love your model. You are a hot mama. Hee hee. I bet you resemble that model more than you think. we are so hard on ourselves. Sometimes I think I could have my mind transferred into a victoria secret model and I would still think I looked horrible. Hee Hee.

Glen, no more Ken huh? I am sorry you had a gain. It will go away again though. I hope things are going well for you though. Take care though. Hope you are having a great summer.

Summer, I love the rain. Hope you enjoyed it. You sound like you are just on the go all of the time. I hope everything is going great for you. I'm glad to hear that Buddy is doing well.

Dana, glad to hear from you. Pop ups are very annoying. we put norton on our computer and keep the firewall enabled and we very rarely get pop ups now???? I don't know if that would help. I think they needed funding for the site. That is why they allow the pop up ads it pays them money so they don't have to charge us? I don't really know though. They said you can purchase a membership on 3FC to eliminate them though???? Anyway, Hope things are going well for you. My sons last day of school is tomorrow and I am very excited. He goes to year round school so only gets a 5 wk break at summer. But he likes it there.

I will check in later. Enjoy your summer. Take Care!!

OK I am here finally! Wow to much to post on today. The kids have school untill the 18th and then the following Thursday Robert is off to Cali for 5 weeks. We are meeting Jasons parents in Mt Shasta area. Have no idea what we will do there but oh well.WHat bugs me is how they treat Megan. Megan will share a room with Jason and me while Robert gets to share a room with his Grandparents. WHy can't they ever take Megan for the night? Because Grandpa freaks out over having to care for her one little bit. I really am not looking forward to this trip. I can feel the stress starting already. Had a few big blow ups with Robert and that got Jason all pi**ed. He was yelling at me about not arguing with Robert and I flipped out and finally said WTF am I supposed to do then let hem tell me what to do and him not do what i tell him to do? Let your little &&)#*(*%$# #*)#*$)(#@* *@)*#@(* @)(@#(@$@__ @_)*@)() brat of a ()@@$@ controll my life?? I had a lotta bad words that day I was so angry. I am still upset that i blew it that bad and mad that Jason still doesn't see what RObert continues to do. At least I just have 2 more weeks and a few days to deal with it :lol:

06-11-2004, 10:03 AM
{{{Rosey}}} How awful about your car! The behavior therapist who works with Elena was here last night and his car had been broken into like that as well. He discovered the night before he was leaving on vacation. He only had a 100 dollar deductible so it wasn't as costly as yours and he also had about 30 CD's a brief case and a very nice flashlight stolen. He said last night he really feels violated. This happened where he lives. I am so sorry and I hope that they find out who it was that did this.

{{{Daphne}}} I sure hope you feel better. You know that stress always messes with my system like that. If I have a lot of sodas, my acid reflux bothers me not what happens to you. If you are drinking diet drinks the aspartane may cause that. It is really more harmful than sugar for hyperactiviy kids. (sorry, got off of subject)

BON VOYAGE, Kris! I guess you are on your way! :bravo: Have a GREAT trip!

:bravo: :encore: :encore: :cheers: :cp: :cp: :bravo: to SuMmEr and JiM on their big losses!!!! I am so proud of you both!!! I hope you are able to have that dinner with Buddy today?! :?: I am sorry, I am trying to catch up while I can and want you to know that I am still praying for Buddy as well as Bert.

Dana, did your dh get that job? The kids get out of your hair yet? Elena has been ok this week because she knows I CAN'T take her here and there this week. Not till after the party which is tomorrow. The pages came out good. I really had fun doing mine but you know it's not a cheap hobby! LOL Especially with those fancy stickers. LOL How are you doing with your weight loss? I am sorry I have lost track. I refuse to change my chickie because I feel that I will be back down to that soon. I have still keep losing four, gaining the four back, losing four and gaining it back. I hope to get this too straightened out after the party.

Dee, Have a good weekend this weekend. I know you work on weekends. What do you do? How are the kids? Is your son out of school now? How are you doing?

Mr. Glen.. Why no more KEN??? I don't understand... :shrug: DOes that mean I can't be a Barbie doll hopeful now because I gained too? :cry: :stress: :cry:

I hope you all have a great weekend. I need to go and get this thing started. I will update and post pictures later. Till then may God hold you ALL in the palm of His hand!


06-11-2004, 10:07 AM
Summer, didn't know you were posting along with me. LOL I was a little long winded today. LOL

Have a great weekend with your friends and I hope the sun stays out for all that you want to do! :flow2: Thank you for your kindness!

Summer I love your chicky and I don't think it would hurt for you to go ahead and get the 20 pounder would it? You're so close and probably reached it already. My scales take the big button cell batteries and they're dead so I don't know where I stand this week but have gotten some ordered should be here soon. We can't find any around here. I know I"ve been sweating away something these last 2 days though.

We just had a storm that dropped us from 94 degrees down to 79 and it feels much better. Our air conditioner we've had for 11 summers now seems to be losing it's coolness. It's almost warmer than the air outside. I guess it's about gone. We had one to go last summer but had only had it 2 years. We have to look for one about mid week this coming week cause we really sweat when it gets hot out. Our pool was like a hot tub yesterday. Haven't been in it today but that's because we had a huge snake in our yard lastnight that DH thought he had killed but an hour later it was gone. I have a picture if I can post it. It was about 8 foot long and I wouldn't know how to explain how big around he was but when they pulled him out of a barrel of water, he looked like the snakes that some people "charm" on TV. UNREAL! I'm thankful it wasn't me who discovered him.

DH didn't get the job and he's very upset. He got his "let down" letter today and a guy who had been there since beginning of year got it. Truly unfair but has to be a good reason of why God didn't allow him to have it.

I've really gotten caught up in all of the Reagan coverage this week. The huge plane taking off and landing was amazing and to finally see Nancy cry lastnight at his funeral made me cry. I was tired of seeing her with that grin on her face that I think was for the media. She needed to let it out. Did you guys see any of it?

Rosey I'm so sorry about your car and how cruel the world can be. They will pay for it if not in this life, in the one they will have after death. That's just about the only way you can look at things like that anymore. So you guys have a "rig"?? I guess someone will have to come up with another way of driving out there want they? Are there any cabins near yours?

My MIL gave me her Kenmore sewing machine that's like 30 years old. It needs a needle and so far I don't know anything about it. I wanted it for the zig zag stitch cause I want to learn how to make these caprisun pouch pocketbooks and beach bags that everyone makes. Logan's teacher "started" it for me last fall when she asked for the kids to bring them in when they finished drinking them and now everyone makes them and sells them on ebay for like $30 and you only have like $4 in them.

Daphne hope you are better now. Do you have a calendar marking the days off for when robert leaves?

Well hope everyone else is having some fun today. We went back to the Dr. yesterday for brett and he's on Lantus insulin now along with having shots prior to eating rather than before he only had them prior to breakfast and supper. it's suppose to help lower his sugars better and he can basically eat anything he wants but has to count carbs before eating and take the shot that matches the carbs.. He gets 1 unit of insulin for every 10 carbs. Monday logan goes to dentist and then we have 2 more app'ts before leaving for beach on july 3rd. Donna hope you guys had some good weather for your party. I better post this before i lose it.

06-13-2004, 06:38 PM
Hi everyone.. so where are all of you???? the guys are on the hunt :cb: :cb: :cb: :cb: its a real lazy day here..have been sewing some..nothing speacial planned not even bingo tonite :( the car business took out extra cash :( i will survive :lol: hope you are all having a great weekend will check in later(((((((hugs))))))))rosey:wave:

06-13-2004, 10:40 PM
hi dolls the boys found me. sorry about your dh dana. glen

06-13-2004, 11:00 PM
I'm just fixing to go to bed but wanted to tell you that I haven't been in here today due to a witch in ebay. She won a stamp auction of mine for only 50 cents and says it was damaged. I never used it and in fact I had bought it on ebay sometime earlier this year. She wants her money back and her bottom line is because it had some ink stains on the wood that it was a bad stamp. It really boils down to my word against hers cause she could damage it and send it to me and then that wouldn't be fair. I've chosen to "try' to ignore her. She keeps sending me nasty emails and everytime I block them, she uses a different one. I reported her today and sent copy of an email so see what happens. After reading her feedback, I am the 17th person she's done this too. She makes up stuff to get the money back and keeps the merchandise too.

It's been much cooler here today. I have to take logan to dentist early in morning for his checkup and brett goes next week.

Rosey sorry no bingo this week but I bet you would have won loads to pay for that window. You are the king of good luck at bingo.

Well I'm getting laken ready for bed as well. Hope you all had a super weekend.

Our company left this morning and we a had a great weekend with them.. We did the pool on Saturday and Sunday we went shopping and looked at some of the old neighborhoods that are all different now. The new development building going on around here is unreal..In a couple more years it will be intirely different neighborhood..but I hope to be MB by them..
We did ok with diet over the weekend.. We only ate some FF on Sunday.. so that wasnt to bad....I got some beautiful Strawberries on Sunday at the market and I am looking at recipes to fix something with them. We love Strawberry short cake but I cant find a cake subsitute..:lol:..Still loooking.
Lots to do today.. Class tonight.. Still taking care of the cats for my neighbor and got to finalize dinner plans this week for Buddy..
I hope it all works out...Phone calls Pone calls.. They take so long to complete..but I have to confirm who is coming to make resturant Reservations before Friday I have to run..

I sure hope that you get your air fixed.. It to hot to be without..Its nice when the temps drop and its pleasant outside...Its been still a little hot with the cloudy days...Saturday it was hot and sunny..The pool water felt great.. The had just put new water in so it cooled it off..
I hope that we see some cool temps this week..I hope that Brett new shots help him and he is Ok with it all....He has been through so much aready..
He has a wonderful Mom to get him through all of this...I admire all you do..
He is a little Tropper when it comes to all of this...I know that you will be so happy to go to the beach real soon... Its always so nice to get away to the beach.. I sure hope that you have great weather..and a wonderful time..
I am sure the pocketbooks and the beachbags you are sewing will sell.
Thats awful about that woman on ebay.. I guess it takes all kinds..
That ashame how people do things like that...I am sorry that you have to be bothered with all that...Thank-you for thinking its alright for me to put the 20 pound chickie on here....That was so sweet of you.I am almost there but I am waiting to see it on the scale..and then I will be dancing..:lol:..

Rosey...I am glad that you had a great weekend.. Mine was nice also..just real busy...Your ride on Sunday sounded really nice.. Thats so relaxing..
I have seen baby moose on TV they are so cute...
Sorry that you couldnt go to Bingo Sunday..but theres always next week..
I know you will win..Its ashame that happen to your car..but I cant blame you for getting a professional to get all the glass out of..
You certainly do not want to be cut with the glass...
I couldnt get over your story about the ebay person..
I think thats why I shy away from ebay..It awful that people are like that...
I will never understand why...I had to laugh at your story about sending Dh to the store and taking a "Leap of Faith "..Been there and done that :rofl:
Have a great Monday :wave:

Hello Everyone..:wave:
Its been another hot and humid day.. Partly sunny but too hot.. The pool does not open untill 4:00 till 8:00 but Starting Friday it will open at 11:00-8:00 Hurayyyyyyyyy.....I have been doing laundry and blessing the house as Donna would say..That never ends.. Didnt do much while we had company.. You all now how that is...No class tonight but we decided to walk over at the high school track tonight after it cools off some.
We wanted to do soemthing different..but if its still to hot.. we will not do it.
I wish they had a track at the gym but the do not.. Really thats the only thing they dont have.. They do have one of those walls you climb..but thats not gonna be me.. No Thanks....:lol:...
My Friend Buddy had to go back in the hospital today.. They will begin Chemo on him Wed and he will have 5 days of the dinner is off again.
We will go see him Friday...He said we could not see him before that due to tests and the chemo is really so hard on him the first few days...
Dinner is almost ready so I have to run...Still looking for a Strawberry Shortcake recipe.. Any suggestions will be appreciated...Thank-you

Rosey....The guys found me... :lol:..I am sorry that the exercise is still so hard for you..I sure hope that the Tape of the Bungie cord thing helps you.
I am sure it will.......I hope that one day soon you wont be so soar doing your exercise.. I wish you had water class near you.. I think that would help you too.. Its easier on the joints and all.. Check the Y's near you..
They should have some classes I would think..
I hope that you enjoy getting dinner fixed for you...That was so nice that your hubby wanted to do that for you..
I am sure you are enjoying your GD and DD..
Have fun and I hope you feel better..
Have a wonderful evening.. love: :wave:

:coffee: Enjoying some coffee in front of the computer for the first time in DAYS! I appreciate you all's understanding why I had to take a excused absence from the thread for a while. :) The party went good inspite of the heat, wind and other occurances. The scrapbook went well too. I really enjoyed doing that but didn't share the same enthusiasm with Elena which really surprised me. I really had to fight with her to do something. In spite of it all she did a great page. My Dad said he didn't read it till the next morning because it was very touching. We had over 30 people there at the party and so inviting approx. 47 people that isn't too bad of a turn out. The weather held out although it had to be the hottest day of the year but by the time of the party the wind blew down a tent it took us 4 a hour and a half to put up and it cooled down some and did not rain! I need to get my sisters camera disk from her so I can get together a snap book of his party like I did for Jim's mother. I just tried to upload a picture of my Dad's cake. It just didn't work. I always have a struggle with this site and pictures. I will send a link so you can see.
Elena is busy in a children's little theatre acting workshop called "funky fairytales" this week. PLUS afterwards she is attending the VBS at my sisters church so we have been busy. I need to go and get some things done as well as get caught up with some bills.
Talk to you all later and more personally.


06-16-2004, 12:01 PM
Ended up not letting it defeat me! LOL I have reduced this picture as far as I could to get it on here. I don't know how people get larger photos on this thing. LOL

06-17-2004, 10:04 AM
But rosey don't you just hate getting ready for something and then it doesn't happen. I have to prepare myself for events such as that. Did you get your car windows taken care of?

I have been so busy around here. Besides keeping auctions running on ebay, taking kids to library to get books that our school district is mandating that they read over summer, taking care of kids, possibly having a yard sale with MIL sat., major cleaning to put in a window A.C. yesterday and another this evening, replacing a refrig. and that's only to name a few. Our refrigerator is barely keeping things cool and it's 11 1/2 years old so I'm sitting here with 4 kids waiting on Lowe's to deliver a bigger 21 cubic foot that my grandfather bought for me. ours was only 16.5 so looking foward to the bigger room. Well I will try to post more later but have to make a call to cancel something that was due to deliver today. Not the Lowe's refrig. but another one. Explain later! :lol:

06-17-2004, 11:10 AM
Dana, it's not like it used to be. You buy a refrigerator and they last almost the length of the marriage! LOL :D :lol: Ours is 10 years old and I have noticed things not staying fresh as long myself. I would like to get a side by side next time. But, money is a little tight now and it isn't completely out. My Dad is taking his refrigerator with him to the new house. I was hoping he wasn't going to and get all new appliances. I was going to ask for his. ;) Sounds like you are having some major electronical devices to break down right now. You sure need a AC with the heat as it's been. With all the rain we have gotten though our grass looks soooo good! Hang in there and tell us all about your new fridge! :)

Rosey, The things you will do for prizes.... :lol: :lol3: :D :joker: I think that idea to lighten things up at your Curves is a great idea! I am glad you found this place. You sure have needed it just for the entertainment! LOL What kind of promo dinner were you having? Was it to be at your house? No, didn't make the cake. Only made the punch and the baked beans. The punch was a big hit too. Even the kids liked it. :)

Summer, sorry you were all alone here. This Friday maybe your dinner out with Buddy, right? I am praying it will take place. Your gym sounds interesting also. I bet you have lost a lot of weight. :) :cp: I feel like I have but haven't had the nerve to step on the scales. :?: :shrug:

Kris, you must be on your European vacation. Dee, how are things for you? Miss you! Mr. Ken thanks for allowing me to stay a Barbie wanna be. LOL Daphne, are you gone away too? I am sorry but seems I am behind on the vacation plans.

This is a busy week but it's all about ELENA! Take her this week to her workshop with the Children's Little Theater that is downtown then she goes directly from there to VBS at my sister's church. She isn't home until after 9:00. That's late for her. I am driving everywhere. Father's Day is this weekend of course you know that. I haven't gotten my Dad nor has Elena gotten her Dad anything yet. Gotta get going don't you think? LOL

Have a good day. I have a :headache: and have to take medicine again. I've had one every day for over a week. I guess it's the heat. :flow1:


06-17-2004, 12:10 PM

06-17-2004, 01:06 PM
:lol::lol::lol: OK Rosey you had a blond moment?? I hadn't received notification that there was new posting sop I didn't come here..... Duh me had read one posting in mail from You and forgot to come to site to get new posting! I am so glad that you are liking Curves. I might start that one up in September when the kids are in school. Was the film outside in the rain? At least you didn't wash it in your jeans!
Donna WOW WOW WOW:cp::cp::cp: you are a bush Mama. I am impressed at what all you are doing with Elena this summer. You are so busy it amazes me. I loved the cake and what was the punch? (EG) Did you spike the punch for the kids to like it?:lol:
Dana what ever happened to the snake that you found in your yard? OK, why do you all have such big freaking snakes? What are they and are the poisioness? I am glad that you are getting a new air conditioner and new fridge.
Summer I am so sorry to hear about Buddy. Be sure to give him my love when you see him. Tell us more about water class. I am really interested in it. I had to chuckle at you geting stormed out of your walk. Was there thunder and lightning?:lol: Here if I don't walk in the rain I don't get to walk!
As for me I am going to go get my hair cut today. Not a big deal you say? Well my hair was almost to my waste 2 months ago. I had it cut about 4 or 5 inches. Now I am thinking of going short. My hair is just to frizzy at the ends even after the hair cut. I used to have nightmares over someone cutting it. It is just hair and I can grow it back but still it is my hair!:lol: OK how is that for being dorky!:lol: Tomorrow is the kids last day of school. They go from 8:45 to 11:00. In my opinion it is a waste to send them but I have a bit of quiet time at least. It has been hot here in the 80s and will be in the 90s today and tomorrow. I really hate being fat in hot weather. We are headed to Cali to meet Jason parents on the 24th and will be home the 26th.
Much love to you all, Daphne :coffee:

Hi guys. I got the fridge. yesterday and it's so roomy. It took a while of course to cool down and we have the ice maker partially hooked up. Dh will have to cut off main water line to finish up maybe after work this evening. It's been so hot here. It's 86 already at noon here. We have to window AC's and the one in my bedroom will nearly freeze you off but the one in the living room just seems to be backing up hill. The guy my DH bought the one in the BR from said it was same BTU but it doesn't seem like it and I really doubt it. I believe the BR is bigger. If we could have some clouds or rain every once in a while then that would help. But then our camper roof needs new caulking on a seam and it is leaking in rain. We have to do something about that soon because we leave for beach on July 3rd and that's not far off. My MIL wanted to have a yard sale tomorrow but I haven't heard anymore about it. I need time to get some stuff out so hope I hear soon.

Rosey I hope you enjoy the time alone over weekend. What was the cookware people going to cook for you? Do you get the free meal whether you purchase or not? Will you get to Bingo this weekend? I havent heard anymore from my ebayer harasser but I was told she would bother me for a week and move on so I guess she saw she wasn't getting nothing from me and went to next victim. Are the kids out of school over there for summer?

Summer I really feel for Buddy and hope that things can calm down for him so you guys can all have a dinner for him. I think you're just going to have to plan it and then as quick as he's able to do it, just run in 20 minutes time and get together. :lol: Are you guys gonna do anything for the 4th of july? Going to play mooselodge anytime soon? My grandpa started his radiation this week and today is 3rd treatment. He's doing real well so far and doesn't even feel them. I think they are wanting to do 42 of them.

Donna how is the pool coming along? Have you taken any pictures of it recently? When do you guys plan on heading to MB next? I'm looking foward to being there for a while but I would have liked to have paid our $330 balance down some more before leaving. I hate for most of our money to be paid on that. We like to rent a golf cart too and it's nearly $200 for a week. Does Elena still play with the new neighbor?

Daphne it's nice to hear from you. The same thing happens to me with the email notification. I read them and forget I haven't been back on this site so it will start sending them to me again. Are you making cards anymore? Are things better with Jason you and Robert or are you just hanging in there until you can "dump" robert for a while? No the snake we had wasn't poisonous. It was a black rat or a "king" snake. We do have copper heads and rattlesnakes around here though although we haven't seen them. My dad kills about a dozen every summer and they are poisonous.

Dee, Kris hope you can update us soon. Ken what's up with you? You are the one that always made us envious with that weight loss. Have you given up on your beer or something? :lol: I have gained about 3 to 4 pounds back as well and have to get back with it soon here. It's just too hot to do anything but eat cold stuff or drink a lot and I think a lot of mine is actually water gain cause I do drink a lot in this heat.

Well I better post this before it's "poofed". :lol: Hope you all have a super friday.

06-19-2004, 12:27 AM
Mr. Ken, maybe your weight gain is due to your medication? :?: :shrug: I can understand your disappointment.

rosey, enjoy your Me time. I miss those days. LOL

Elena did GREAT on her last theatre workshop tonight. She had multiple parts. It was so very cute. :) :D

Dana, it's too hot isn't it? The pool has been a nightmare. The liner is not in and it's all due to bad financial practice of the guy they were doing business with. He is really suffering from this along with some others he has let down as well. My bil has to find someone else to finish the job and in turn will cost another grand or more. We got rained on in Greenville today but it was dry as a bone at home when we came home tonight. I have to agree with you with the two AC's. One has to be stronger. We do not go to MB until August. I hope that is. If my Dad is moving into his new house we will have to postpone it. We are going to Kansas City in less than two weeks now. Looking forward to that. :)

Summer, I'm sorry that Buddy's dinner was cancelled. This is very sad for all of you and Buddy too I'm sure. I'm still praying for him and Bert. How is the exercise today? You go girl!!!! :dancer:

Well, gotta get my dh out of the recliner and into the bed. It's always something! LOL :lol:

06-19-2004, 04:00 PM

Hello Everyone......
I am sorry that I havent been in here.. We have had some pretty bad storms this week....We had rain when I tired to walk the track and Thursday at the Gym My water class lasted all of 10 minutes it started storming and lightening and they made everyone get out of the pool and the big whirlpool and we never had a chance to finish the class..The storm was bad..we went home and I didnt get on the pooter because of it..Then Firday I was so busy with cut.. getting car washed and trying to get ready to go see Buddy at the hospital and take his Lemon cake.We did go to see Buddy and another storm came and it was really bad with lightening again and thunder.. I truley was scared for awhile.... We had friends with us to see Buddy and after all that we al went to dinner..The storm finally calmed down around 10:00 and we came home.. It was something else. I dont know if anyone of you saw anything about the east coast geting hit hard with storms or not..but I sure hope its over for us..I dont want to see anymore of those..Tomorrow is Fathers Day..and I amtaking my hubby out to Dinner at the Texas Steakhouse that just opened in out area.. I have heard good things about it...Good food and service..Great prices.. so we shall see..
Monday I will see if I have reached my mark to change my "Little Chickie"..
I sure hope so...I did eat a backed potato with dinner Friday but I didnt eat all that day.. so I hope it didnt hurt me.. I sure tell the difference in not having a class Thursday... I hope that nothing stops my class Monday..but I think or I hope that all the storms are behind us for now..
We are planning a 4th of July pool party.. for some of us.. There will be a formal pool party catered and all on the 10th of July and another one in August I think... So I will be busy with helping fo that.. I am looking at different digital cameras to buy.. Do any of you have any suggestions on which kind to buy?? I appreciate your input...Thank-you All..

Daphne... I am so glad to hear from you...I sure hope that things are better for you...Thank-you for sending your Love to Buddy.. I will tell him.. That will cheer him up... I pray that he can come home this coming week.. He looked better this time than last and I am praying he will doing better this time..Again Let me say Thank-You for all your Thoughtfullness and Kindness and very Sweet concern for him.. You are such a Wonderful Person and Friend. I am truly Blessed to have you in my life...
I hope that you like your hair cut....if you got one....Wow you have really long hair... I could not manage my hair if it was that long..You must be a real good stylist.....My hats off to you Sweetie.. I hate blow drying my hair and it takes a long time cause I have thick hair.... My hair was longer when I was younger but the older I got the shorter my hair got.... I have it not quite to my shoulders now..thats long enough for me to handle.. :lol:...
I got a good Haircut Friday for a change....We didnt get lightening on our walk just rain..but we got alot of lightening and thunder at the Gym Thursday and more of the same Friday.. It was bad.. Lights flickered and the winds were high.. Scarey.. I had to laugh at what you said about it raining there and you always walking in it.. I never thought about it untill you said that.. I always heard that Washington State had alot of rain.. I dont like the rain..or cloudy dreary days.. I love the sunshine and warm temps and nice breezes...In a nut shell.."The Beach"..thats me...Have a wonderful time on your trip to Janson's Parents and enjoy your "YOU" time..

I am really looking forward to class on Monday.. Due to the I have only did 1 class last week...I am sorry that you are soar from the classes.. I would ask the instructor at Curves if you will be soar all the time and what if anything can you do to help that....I sure hope it gets better for you real soon and
I want you to know that I admire you so very much for still going when it hurts....You Go Girl... You are doing it.. :dancer: :encore:

I know you are so proud of her and I am happy that she is having so much fun.. She is truely one lucky little girl to have such a wonderful Mom to make her summer vacation so wonderful....
I am so sorry to hear about your Dad's pool.. Now days it so sad how people get ripped-off by bad contactors.. It goes on here all the time.... I hope that the contractor can be made to pay for what he did...I hope that the pool is finished real soon..You all will need it with all the heatwave going on...
Have fun on your trip to Kansas City... and I know that in August you will be having much fun in MB... I will keep my fingers :crossed: for you..
Have a great weekend and HAPPY FATHERS DAY :love: :wave:

Mr Ken... I am sorry about the weight gain... Maybe its meds like Donna said..
Have you ever tried Fake Beer. There is a beer here called O'Douls..
It has no alcohol and My hubby says it tastes like real beer.. He has diabetes and he cant have alcohol.. He was never a big drinker anyway so that was never a prob..but sometimes he likes a cold beer..and this fits the bill and its not as many calories as real beer....I am not saying that you are a big drinker or anything I just meant that if you like a beer now and then..try this one.. I am sure you will get back on track....
Have a great weekend and HAPPY FATHERS DAY :love: :wave:

Kris.....Dee..... I miss you all and I am sure you are busy with everything going on in your lives.. Please post when you can...
Have a great weekend and HAPPY FATHERS DAY:love: :wave:

I hope all goes well with your friends surgery today, Summer. :) My sister had that done a few years back.
It's a cloudy, rainy dark day here today. I feel like just sleeping but that can't be with a active 9 year old. LOL :)
Jim had a good Fathers Day yesterday and I think my Dad did as well. Shock of all shocks I actuallly gave him something he actually WANTED!!! ROFLOL My Dad is so hard to buy for. :( We went to a steak house too after church and last night I treated Jim and Elena to ice cream at Brusters. BUT Jim got up vomiting several times last night. I guess he's ok because he went to work today. :shrug:
I hope all goes well with everyone today. Dee, Dana, Daphne, Kris, Mr. Ken, Rosey, Summer I love you all!!! :love:

Hi all my yayas. I have been enjoying our heat wave and sitting in my hot tub. I think I am totally water logged now though. We leave for Weed, CA on Thursday. I will post more later just wanted to say a fast hi to all ya!

06-22-2004, 11:36 AM
Its a cloudy and very humid day today....Its suppose to rain today and it looks like it will happen.. I am doing laundry and cleaning.. I didnt get home untill after 7:00 I missed class... I didnt like that but there was nothing I could do.. I was to tired to go..
It was "murphy's law" yesterday.. I picked up my friend to take to the hospital.. She was late getting ready to leave.. Then she told me where to go...After we got to the hospital and checked in...we waited for awhile and they called her name we went to the check in desk and they said they could not find any record of her having sugery there today.. I asked them to call her surgeon's office and they did.. She was at the wrong place.. By the time I got her to the Surgery Center....they made her wait untill the last person for surgery that day..Both the surgery center and the hospital have the same first maybe thats what confused her.. I dont know..
Needless to say I wasnt happy...but I know she didnt do it on purpose..
I think she was so scared about having it done she didnt hear Surgery Center....She just assumed it was at the hospital..I was really tired when I got home.. I took her home....then went and got her RX filled and waited for her daughter to come.. She has a 3 year gd at home.. so by the time I got home it was to late to go to the gym.. I was pooped...What a day..
I have to go to the grocery store in a bit and then it more laundry and cleaning...No pool today..No sun..:lol:Thats just as well..I ahve to much to do so I wont miss the pool today..
Buddy did come home Yesterday.. Thats good news....
Thank-you ALL again for all your kindness about Buddy.... You ALL are the BEST.... I appreciate all your prayers and concern so very much..
Bert is doing ok.... I am still talking to her family about assisted living for her.. I think she would be better off there...They have alot to offer her and she would never be alone...

Donna...Thank-you for the well wishes for my friend.. Everything did go wise.. She was in alot of pain afterwards and they gave her alot of pain meds.. She has to have the other hand done plus her you did for teninitus..( sp ). I think she has to have her neck to for a disc or something done too..She told me she was falling apart..she was joking..
Sounds like the Dad's had a nice Fathers Day..Thats great...
You all did the same thing we did.. Steakhouse and Ice cream..:lol:..I am sorry that Jim got sick.. Hope he is feeling better.. Was it the food???
I hope you can have some "You" time real soon....Its hard when you are tired and want to sleep in some.. Maybe you can do that soon...
Hope your weather is better there today than here..
Have a great day....:love: :wave:

Rosey.. I am glad you had some "you" time.. I know how much you enjoy it.
I know what you mean about not messing up the house after you clean..
Are the pot and pan people coming back this week???
I have so much to do today..Cleaning and laundry and grocery store..
Hope you are enjoing the day...Have a great day...:love: :wave:

Daphne...Glad that you are enjoying the heatwave in your hot tub....I am glad you are getting some relaxing time.....It so good to hear that you are getting some time for you....after all you have been through..
Have a great time on your trip to safe...All us YAYA's will miss ya..
Have a great day... :love: :wave:

Dana....Kris.....Dee.....Mr Ken..... Where are you..:cb: :cb: :mag:
I miss you all.... Have a great day.....:love: :wave:

06-22-2004, 12:17 PM
What's that sound???? Do you hear it? It is the sound of silence. I just dropped Elena off at the church for they are going today to the Zoo in Columbia, SC and she will be gone ALL day! :coffee: Any one who doesn't know me reading this will probably be saying to themselves "what a horrible mother" :dizzy: The freedom won't last though. We have a appt. with a pediatric specialist at 1:00 this afternoon and because it's going over the results of all the tests she had done at the end of the school year she doesn't have to be present. Good thing because she would of been very upset if she missed the Zoo. She LOVES :love: animals! I think I slept last night the best I have slept in weeks. I had a *talk* with my sister about a situation that was put on me and I feel it went well. It had to be the best timing and since it was about our Dad before the party or father's day was not the best time. So, the opportunity arose last night. It's such a fine line with family and I am dealing with a very sensitive situation. I really hope that all went as well as I felt it did during our conversation. The enemy did try to hinder the meeting though because it was a terriable rain storm on me on the way to her place and when I stepped out of the car to her condo the street was flooding. I got soaked to the skin through my socks and shoes. At least that incident made my entrance a little different because she was very stressed out on what I had to talk to her about. I did not want to go over it over the phone or email. It was too delicate. Enough with that, it's now over and I am so very much glad. It is now out of my hands. :)
Summer, what a mess you had yesterday. You are truly a wonderful friend to your friend for putting up with all that and I can truly understand why you were way too exhausted to go to your class after all that. They should of made it more clear to her about *where* since both have the same name except for the surgical center. I can understand her saying she is falling apart, she has alot going on with her. I sure hope the :rain: stops a bit so you can enjoy pool time at least this weekend. Glad Buddy is home now. It sounds like you need some "me" time. :) ;) :coffee:
Daphne, my sister just came home from a weekend trip to San Diego, California. She said they actually had to buy light jackets there. It doesn't get higher than the 70's and the lows were in the 60's in the evenings. What a difference, huh? We have had some real hot days too. Hot and humid now with the rain. But, at least it isn't draught conditions. My grass looks very nice and green! I hope your trip goes well and that you will update us before you leave. :)
Dana, I guess you are getting ready for your trip to MB next week. Did you get the roof, the AC and the refrigerator all taken care of? Sister's pool is still not done and it is a shame but with the rain lately we wouldn't been able to enjoy it so just as well. My Dad's house is really shaping up. The deck is in now and they are doing the drywall stuff now. Expected move in maybe in the end of July.
Rosey, I'm glad you had a break. Are you having pot and pan people coming? LOL That sounds funny. LOL When do you go to see your mother? Isn't it soon? I bet you are getting very excited.
Dee, I am very, very, very concerned about you. :mag: :cb: :mag: :cb: :write: :?:
Kris, you are probably having tea with the :queen: right about now. LOL I sure hope you are having a blast!!! I couldn't remember when you said you would be coming home. I miss you! :) :grouphug:
Mr. Ken try that non-alchoholic beer. It tastes just as good as the other. I hope your weigh in this weekend will be better for you.
Well, friends one week from today we will be on a plane to KC! I need to do so much but can't get going with this "free" time! :rofl: :lol3:
Have a great day and I'll post again! :write: :callme: :cp: :wave:

Hello Eveyone..
Its another cloudy and dreary day..We had alot of rain last night..and more on the way for today.. I still have more laundry and cleaning to do..
I have class tonight and Iwill be weighing-in..:crossed:..I hope we dont get a bad storm and the pool has to be evacuated....I have missed enough classes.
My friend is doing pretty good with her hand.. I guess it gonna take time to heal and she is in discomfort..I think she waited to long to get this done and now its gonna take longer to heal.. I feel for her.. She is very active person and this is really getting her down.. I have to go there to day and help around the house..I fixed a chicken casserole to take there today..
All they do is pop it in the oven to re-heat......Lots to do before class tonight.

Donna.... I had to laugh :lol: when I read your post about silence..
No you are NOT a bad Mother.. Whats wrong with having some "YOU" time.. nothing..thats a good thing.. We all need that especially Hard working Moms like you and all the Moms in here....All Moms need a break..I hope you got some well deserved rest.... I hope to have a "ME" day soon..I wont know how to act though....but I am willing to try :lol:..
Sounds like Elena is enjoying her summer and the zoo trip....Thats wonderful that she loves animals.. She may want to be a vet some day.. Never know..
I am glad what-ever it was you needed to say to your sister is over and that you feel better about it...I am sorry you got soaked in the process..Thats how it was raining last night...and they are calling for more here today....I hope that your weather gets better and you can enjoy the pool..Sounds like your Dad's place is coming right along.. Thats good news...I am sure he will be glad to get moved in....That was so sweet of you to say about me..
Thank-you Donna.. I just try to help people when I can..
I just hope my friend feels better soon.. She has been through alot lately..
I will be checking on Buddy and Bert today.. I hope that both of them are doing ok..Have a safe and wonderful trip to Kansas.. it will be here before you know it.. and if you are like me I wait untill the last minute to pack and then I always forget something..:lol: Please enjoy your "you" time and please dont feel guilty....Have a great day..:love: :wave:

Rosey so what was better about that meal, the food or the chef?? :lol: I've never heard of those but I hope you can cook as well as he did in them so no one will be disappointed. Maybe you should invite that guy back as a "thank you for introducing your pans to me" dinner. :)

Yes Summer we got the big air conditioner. It needs its braces put up to keep it from falling. Dh has a piece of wood or something outside under it to prop it but the first time he did that on Sat. if fell back in window and we had to catch it. It takes 2 to lift it. It's real heavy but it works well. The thermostat on it can actually work enough to cut itself off. it's 72 degrees out now and the air isn't on. The other one never cut off in the 3 days we had it. It's boxed back up and hopefully walmart will take it back and that will be $130 toward our MB trip.

Donna don't know about you but I am at my wits end with my boys. I can't wait until school starts back and I mean NOW. I kept my nephew today and put the 3 boys together, you can't think straight. Have you gotten that pool issue straightened out yet. Is that mess in with the house too or is it finished?

Kris glad you're back and good bye again. Whirl wind!! When will you get to sit and rest a day?

Dee are you still out there?

Hi Ken! Are you laying back on the beer this week? Is it not hot enough in canada for water?

Well I hate to post and run but I am beat and I'd really like to go to bed if you know what I mean. Thank goodness DH doesn't work next 2 days but he has 5 yards of grass to cut not to mention our own. Hope you all have a good evening.

06-23-2004, 11:55 PM
Actually Dana Elena hasn't really been a big pain lately since that new neighbor child has gone out of town or something. She hasn't been around. It is a bad combination.. two hyperactive children feeding off of each other! LOL But actually there were things this 7 year old talked about that I just as well have Elena learn from us than her so just as well. No pool but my Dad's house is coming along really good. The pool is a real nightmare and we are now glad it didn't happen in OUR yard! LOL No, seriously I feel real bad for my sister and bil. It is going to cost them more than anticipated and there isn't anything they can do about it.
Rosey, I have never heard of those type of pans. I love cookware and would be interested in seeing something about them. Does this product have a web site?
Kris, I am so glad to see a post from you! I hope you have a good trip to Indiana!
Summer, hope the weather got better for you so you could go to your class.
Dee, Daphne and Mr. Ken I miss you as well!
:wave: :callme: :write: :cb: :cb: :mag:

20 pounds gone.. WOW...I got on the scales thinking that I prob had not lost more and when I steped up oin the scale.. WOW...I cant believe my eyes...
I thought for sure because of eating out so much this past weekend I would have not lost anymore..but I did...I am so happy and I will try to keep going.
:dance: :dancer: :encore:

Rosey... That was such a sweet thing to say.....Thank-you.... I bet your wild Roses and all the flowers are a beautiful site out on your deck.. I hope one day we can see pictures of it..

I have to go to Walmart this weekend..also I have a Bridal Shower to go to on Saturday..I have to go to thier registered places and get a gift....or its money in a card..Not sure which one yet.... I never know what to get people.
Have fun shopping and enjoy the day.. :love: :wave:

Dana.. I am so glad you got your new air condioner.. It sounds really nice and puts out alot of air.. Thats great.. Hope that you can return the other one..but Walmart is usually real good about taking back things..I know you must be excited about leaving for MB.. I wish we were going too...
Sounds like the boys are doing the usual "Boy Stuff".. my hats off to you and all the Moms in here....Kids can test your patients all the time.. Its hard I know..but keep thinking MB MB MB...:lol:...I hope that you could get some rest while you hubby is home and before your trip to MB..
Have a great time at the beach..oh..I forgot to say I hope that you got your beach bags done to sell at the beach..or were you selling them on ebay?? I cant remember..either way I hope you sold them all..
Just remember I will be thinking about you at MB and wishing I was there too...We dont go untill September.. I was hoping to get there in July but things didnt work out that way..Jim's work..he cant get away..
Have a great Day :love: :wave:

Donna....I am so sorry about your sisters's pool probs.. Thats ashame......I know that its a real headache for them....I hope they can get it all done real soon....I am glad that Elena is having a great summer....The weather here is really good.. in fact I will be going to the pool today...I know you are getting ready for your Kansas trip....and that will be real soon..Have fun and very safe trip..Have a great day..:love: :wave:

06-26-2004, 04:10 PM
Way to go on that loss glen. I knew you would find your way back to the land of the losses.

Summer that loss for you is super and we knew it would be so soon that you would get that 20 pound chicken :lol: you better get the 25 POUND chick ready cause it will be posted next week.

Rosey I never made anything to sell. I have almost finished one of those beach bags but it's for myself. I didn't get a sewing machine to use> my mil gave me one but it was like 40 years old and wouldn't work so I made one by hand. It needs handles but otherwise will do. Have fun at your b-day party and good luck at bingo as always.

Donna so what's the deal with your PC? Mine is acting really stupid but it's in the keyboard. I have to retype everything it seems. It capitalizes stuff when I dont' tell it too and adds crazy punctuation.

I've just been really busy here. A week from today we will be at the beach (hopefully on it) and we haven't packed a thing. I need to make a list of "forget me nots" anyway. This is the birthday/anniversary weekend for us. Yesterday was the 12th year anniversary and tomorrow I will be 31. (don't EVEN do the math)

Well I will post this before I lose it but wanted to say :wave: to you all.

06-26-2004, 10:51 PM
Hello Everyone....:wave:
Its in the air with Pooter probs..
Mine has been acting up.. and I dont know why...Unreal..
I went to the Bridal Shower today..It was really nice.. She got wonderful gifts...and it was great to see her so surprised..
She didnt have a clue about the Shower... It was fun..
I hate to say this but Buddy is back in the hospital again.. his blood count went slow low due to this last chemo treatment.... I am praying he will recover once again from all of this..
Its such ashame he has to endure all of this..
I am really tired from today and yesterday... The shower was at 3:00 pm but it was a couple hours from accomodate all the family and friends from both sides so they had it in a location that everyone traveled about the same distance....I had to leave earlier today to get there and yesterday... I had so many errands to run and last minute things for the shower.. I am glad its done and I will be at the pool tomorrow relaxing if the weather is nice..
I sooooo hope it will be..

Donna.. Thank-you so much for the :cheers: for the weight loss..
I was so pleased....Now I am working on more weight loss...I will be trying..
I am sorry about your pooter troubles and glad that you got a new pooter..
What was wrong?? I sure dont know what the prob was with mine..
Like I said before they are possessed....:lol:
Thats great you got another one... I know what a pain all of it can be when they go crazy......Your trip will be here before you know it..
I am sure you have things to get ready for the trip..Always so much to do..
Have a great evening :love: :wave:

Rosey...Thank-you so much for the :cheers: for the weight loss..
I am so happy...Its hard work as you know.....but so worth it..
I will continue to try to loss..... :workout:
That was a cute story about your gd....I know how much you enjoy your Grandchildren....It wont be long and you will be on your trip to see your Mother and sisters..and I am sure all of your family will be so happy to see you....Have a big $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ at Bingo I have my fingers :crossed: for you...It will come in handy for your trip..
Have fun a the BD party tommorrow...Have a great evening :love: :wave:

Dana...Thank-you so much for :cheers: for the weight loss.. I hope that you are right about the 25 Chickie coming soon... I sure hope so....but I dont think it wil be next week.... I hope in a couple weeks...:lol:
I am sorry about your sewing machine..that you didnt get your beach bags made to sell....Maybe you can get a sewing machine alter on.. I have seen them as low as 99.00 at Walmart.. I dont know anything about sewing machines and maybe those are not real good ones..but with your talent and all I am sure you could make alot of different things to sell at the beach next year or on Ebay...Your pooter sounds like mine.....Possesssed..:lol:..
Have a safe and wonderful time at MB.. I will thinking about you and wishing I was there...Have a great evening :love: :wave:

Mr Ken...Thank you for the :cheers: for the weight loss..
Way to go on your 1.6 loss..:bravo: :cp: :cheers:

06-30-2004, 11:59 AM
Hello Everyone.....
Rosey..sorry that I didnt get in here yesterday.. I had errands and then I went to the pool for the day.. It was a beautiful sunny day and today is the same.. I hope to go for a few hours then its off to water class tonight..
I came home from the pool yesterday and had some things to do and I didnt get a chance to get on the pooter......Today I have somemore things to do like laundry and cleaning etc... then its off to the pool again..:cp:

Rosey... I cant wait to see the pictures of the Mommy Moose and Baby.. I bet that was so cute...I am going to get one of those 1 time use cameras to take to the pool and take some pictures of the pool party and the 4th party.
Please tell your hubby to take some pictures of your beautiful garden and all the lovely flowers..
I know what you mean about DMV..They are always so busy here..Its a day trip to go to any of them for anything....I think thats matter where people live.. It seems that all DMV's are trhe same... slow slow slow.
I found the new pasta called Dreamfields.. Its is a reduced carbs and its really good.. Looks like regular pasta..tastes like it and cooks like it.. It is really really good.. I got it at our Safeway grocery store.. I dont know if you have one there..but its really worth trying to get it.. It says its only 5 digestiable carbs in a serving..I found this pasta on TV.. There are commercials for it..They said if you dont like get your money back..well they are right its really good..Not like wheat pasta or the other that tastes like cardboard.. this is unreal and good...Almost to good to be true..but I researched it on the internet and they have somehow made it from real ingrediants and altered the flour and thats why you dont have the carbs.. like reg.pasta.. anyway.. if you get the chance try it.. it great..
Go on line at and see where you can get it..
It wont be long and you will be on your way to see your Mom and sisters..
I know you must be excited to go....Glad you got your Traverlers Checks..
Thats the best way to go when going on a long trip..what are your plans for the 4th??? We are going to the pool of course..:lol: if the weather is good..
I will make some Dirty Rice and Chicken Wings and salad.. Next weekend is the Big Pool Party here.. It will be catered..Hot dogs..hambugers..and all the fixens...Mac salad....Pot salad..baked beans..Chips and and soft drinks....and much much more..They are having home made ice cream too..
It should be really great..Cant wait..
I am praying for this good weather to last..
Hope that you are enjoying the day Rosey...I have to go.. Got lots to do before class tonight....Hope that your weather is good too..
Take Care..:love: :wave:

I know that Donna..Dana...Daphne..are on vacation....and having a great time....I All...and I am happy that you are on vacation and enjoying yourselves.....Enjoy..:love: :wave:

Hello "Chickies"....
I have been so busy today..trying to catch-up laundry and house work and on the pooter looking for Mini Bagel Bites..These are little sausages wrapped in a mini bagel..They are sooooo good.. I fix them on the 4th to take to the pool and now the 2 places I always get them do not carry them..Go figure..anyway I have been on the web and I have found some but I have to drive about 30 min. to get them.. I will decided later..when to go...
Tonight I have water class again... I was really whipped last night..When I miss a class I can really tell it.. I am gonna try not to miss anymore..but I cant say what will happen.. The last one was due to taking my friend to get her stiches if duty calls..but I hope I can get all 3 per week.....

Hi guys. I haven't left yet. Either during night tonight or real early in morning. It's up to DH since he's only driving this year. Only taking 1 car, MIL"s explorer. I haven't packed any clothes yet but only stuff like drinks and such are in a corner in living room. We have had so much rain that we haven't been able to put things in the camper like we had liked too. Dh is even working today so I have to get gas and empty garbage sometime today.

Summer if it helps any to know this, it most likely will rain/storm on us every day at the beach as usual. My mil and fil have been down there since sunday. They are staying 2 weeks and she said it's stormed every day and some have been bad enough to rip off camper awnings and such. It's not as bad if you know when it's coming but if it's middle of night, you don't have warning to let awnings up and such. We are only yards from the ocean this year. Only 1 camper in front of us which really only means 3 things: long way from bath house, short distance to beach, worse storm conditions with wind. Luckily, we are going to rent a golf cart to help with the bath house scenario. :lol: I hope you have nice weather this weekend though and have a lot of fun. You know that's exercising as well. The pasta you mentioned is on tv commercials and in our Diabetes Forecast magazine but we haven't tried it yet. I certainly will though for brett cause he loves all types of pastas.

Rosey I pray those fires are out soon and your family is safe. Is it arson or something? Have a wonderful time BBQing.

Daphne I've missed you and glad you are getting SOME quieter time. Are you counting down the days before he gets back? Do you have to go pick him up as well? Yes walmart took AC back with no questions asked really. They never even looked in the box that I had in the buggy. She did everything off the receipt but it could have been empty box for all she knew? :shrug:

Well I must get up from here. It's nearly 10:30 already and I have too much to do that it makes me sick to my stomach just to think about it. All the kids are still sleeping. I will get to leave on one good note, I did lose my weight back down to actually deserve my chicky! :lol: I will be getting post cards for you so be looking for them if I had your address. I love you all dearly and will miss you. Everyone stay safe while I"m gone.

Hello Everyone...
Its been a interesting holiday weekend... It rained Sat..Sun...and some today... We didnt go to the Fireworks on Sat.. they changed it due to more rain expected on Sunday and it stopped raining at dark on Saturday and they did the fireworks then..Now all the different towns around here do thier own thing when it comes to fireworks.. Some even have rain dates that will happen into this week.. We wont go to those.. The Fireworks on The Mall in DC goes on rain or shine..We dont get caught-up in that mess.. To many people and tooooo much traffic.. We had a nice time Saturday with a cook-out at the pool..and friends there it was so nice..Hubby was off today due to the 4th being on Sunday...I got nothing done..if you know that I mean..
Trying to play catch up tomorrow and I have things I must do...
I was upset cause I didnt get to class tonight..Our company didnt leave untill this evening.. What can I say..Oh well tomorrow is a another day..:lol:

Rosey...Sorry you were lonesome.. I have been so busy with company and all..I really didnt have time to get in here..and it was storming too...Late afternoon and evening....We were mad about that.. I wanted good weather..
I guess it could have been worse..
Sounds like you had a great 4th with Grandkids and your family there...I am sure they all had a wonderful the parade and the BBQ...
They sound so cute with thier faces painted with a flag..You are such a great Grammy..with the cookie kit for them.. I know they had to love that..
Way to go on being good about not eating to much...:bravo: :cp:
I was good too....It wasnt easy..there was sooooo much food.. I told myself that next weekend is the big pool party thats being cattered and I am gonna eat then.. :lol:
I hope that those fires are dying down now..I am glad you all are safe..
Thats some scarey stuff.. I hope that Sheree is ok..Thats ashame these things happen..
Have a great evening with your family...:love: :wave:

Dana.. I am so sorry about all the rain there and at MB... I hope that the weather changes for you there.. and the sun comes out..Yes I can imagine its scarey in the middle of the night if a storm gets bad and you are so close to the ocean in the camper....I will pray that doesnt happen...I want you to enjoy your time there..I am sorry that your MIL and FIL had rain the whole time they have been there.. Mother nature has been raining on everyones parade this week.. Our 4th was rainey too..and it rained into the weekend and today too...
I hope that you are not so stressed out like your were the other day..
I diffenently understand why Sweetie...
You have all of it on your shoulders.. Its so hard.. I know...

Hi everyone! I had a relaxing 4th here. I slept in until 10:30 AM and had no time to get ready for Church so DH went alone. Megan had a seizure in the early morning so she was sleeping it off as well. I went to the lake with my neighbor and looked at the craft booths and bought a shaved ice and an elephant ear. Came home and went to neighbors for a BBQ around 6ish. We then left off fireworks for the Indian reservation.:nono: OK they were not exactly legal but not as not legal as others around us!:lol:
Rosey I am so sorry about the fires around you. How are they doing today? How is your breathing doing?
Summer I am so sorry that you didn't get to class again. Things happen for a reason even if we don't always understand or agree with them. Do you have class today? It sounds like you still had a blast with the 4th even with all the rain.
Donna how was your 4th? Are you still gone and when will you be back?
Glen hope that yopu had a fun weekend and kept the beer at bay!:lol:
OK off to do some shopping on line!

Hello Everyone......I have been busy doing just about everything..
Housework and laundry errands and helping some friends..
I did get to the pool yesterday..Hurayyyyyyyy
It was so hot that I stayed in the pool on the lounger most of the time..
The pool was almost empty except for me and 4 other was still nice.. Hubby got off a little early and joined me for awhile..We had fun and then we come home and I fixed dinner.... I was pooped and went to bed early..
Today its over cast and looks like rain today..I hope if it does rain its all gone by the weekend... Its the pool party this weekend..and I want nice weather..
I bought some of those throw-away cameras and I want to take lots of pictures..I have plenty to do today too... always something to do right..
Womans work is never done..:lol:

Rosey.....Hope you won $$$$$$ at Bingo...Sounds like you are having a nice relaxing time with your family....Thats great.. I know how much you love having them there with you..How is the book coming for your trip??
I made reservations for our MB trip in September and we are going to Ocean City Md for a few days at the end of July.. I cant wait....
Have a great day :love: :wave:

Daphne....I am so glad you had a relaxing and a very nice 4th..
Thats wonderful.... I hope that Megan is doing alright....
May I ask whats a elephant ear?? :lol:.. I never heard of them..
We never go anymore to see the fireworks.. We can see them from our street and really from our thats what we do now..We use to drive to another town and watch them but it got to be toooo much now we stay home..I enjoy going to the pool and maybe next year they will leave the pool open to sit up on the upper deck and watch the fireworks.. I have suggested that so we shall see..Yes Sweetie.. we had fun on the 4th even with the was nice to be there with everyone at the pool and have fun....we missed that last year when hubby was sick...
I have classes on Monday--Wed.--Thurday...Tonight I have a class.. I need it thats for sure...I really enjoy them..but sometimes the poop me out..:lol:
Buddy is home and doing ok and I talked to him yesterday....He said to tell you hello and hoped that everything was good with you and yours... I told him I would tell you that...He is doing as well as can be expected.. He is a fighter and we all keep good thoughts for him everyday.... Bert is doing Ok.. She goes to therapy once a week and that seems to help her and I am hoping she will go to assisted living..That would be really great for her..She needs alot more and at assisted living she would get it..I keep trying to get her family to do that..but I can only do so much..Thank-you for always asking about them...You are so thoughtful...and such a wonderful YAYA friend..I hope that you are enjoing good weather and having some time for you....Did you find some good bargains on line yesterday???

Hi there! You may have noticed that I changed my chickie. I weighed myself when I got home from our trip and saw I gained almost ten pounds so I had to take away my 30 pounds lost status. :shrug: :cry: :stress: :lol:
Well, yes we took pictures. Only 100. So, I'll post a link to them when I get all the editing done.
It's such a nice area where my sister lives. There is something for everyone. We took the kids to a park called Deanne Rose Children's Farmstead that was like going back in time. There was an old fashioned school house, indian teepees, pony rides, hayrides, mining for gemstones, playgrounds, lots of gardens, animals and plans for more little exhibits of old timey dairy farm and so on. It was FREE! Of course you had to pay for the mining of the gemstones or the pony and hay rides but it was all very reasonable and Elena loved it.
We went to see a Kansas City Royals baseball game and there was an outstanding fireworks show afterwards. Good game but the Royals lost! :lol: :rofl: We took the kids to a movie when it rained on Thursday and first there was a childrens mall that they had a great time in. That evening my sister and I went to a Italian restaurant to eat and shopped then went to see a movie called "The Terminal" with Tom Hanks. It was good I thought. I think we would of liked the Notebook though better. But we didn't choose that one! :lol: Friday, we went into the city and took the kids to a Crayola shop that had a Crayola Cafe where we ate lunch and shopped. It was cute. I was amazed at how much things they have for kids. I was glad to say the least. On Saturday we went to a airshow that was out of this world but they didn't plan the transportation very well from the event back into the city to where we parked. We waited nearly two hours for a bus. It was total chaos. It was so hot that a man passed out and one lady was so concerned about her baby getting dehydrated. We would be told to go to one area to wait for the bus and then told no and it was back and forth like that and the frustration was definately felt by all. Good thing there wasn't alcohol there because we probably would of witnessed a fight. LOL It worked out though finally.
On the fourth of July we hung out at their neighborhood pool and saw a fireworks show that evening at a business park and yes.. ELVIS! He is alive... I hate to tell you all. LOL :lol3: They had some bands playing and lots of things to eat. I ate and ate the complete time I was there I'm afraid. That explains the ten pounds. (lol)
On Monday we went to "The Plaza" in KC. It is several blocks big of different shops and restaurants and many fountains, statues and the buildings had European flare to it. Very nice. I had gone there with Mary and my then stepmother before she gave birth to Bethany and I wanted very badly to show Jim. It's beautiful area.
Our flights to KC went smoothly. Elena did real well for her "first time" on the way home from Cinncinnati we ran into some storms that I thought would ruin her experience of a good plane flight but she did good. A young boy sitting behind her got air sick. Not a pretty sight.
Well that is what I did on my summer vacation. LOL Sorry if I lost you... LOL

OH BTW! My sister's pool is finally finished. We have been swimming today and the day before. :) :D

Rosey, when do you leave? I know you are excited! How cool about the pants. :dancer: Hope you feel better.

07-12-2004, 01:11 PM
Rosey I am laughing about the Claratin. It hasn't been helping me and just makes me want to sleep. my nose is still running none stop and last night was bloody as well. I am thinking I have a sinus infection as well. I am impressed that you can sew jeans. I am going to try and make Megans pillows this week for her bedroom. When do you leave on your trip? Is that DH going to go elk hunting this year? What about fishing?
Donna yea!!!! Welcome back woman we missed you. That trip sounds absolutely wonderful. I think it is just what you all needed. Next time can I go with you? I will be Elenas nanny.:lol:I am sure the 10 pounds will come off so fast now that you are home and able to eat normal and drink water like normal.
Summer how was the pool party? Did it rain or was it nice? How was the food and what did you eat? Did it wear out that DH of yours? I think I want to spend the summer with you and the pool! What do you have planned next party wise? How is Buddy doing this week? Let him know he is in my thoughts as usual.
Dana when do you come back? Are you back today?
Kris when do you leave again?
Glen how was your weekend?
OK did you all know it is hard to type with a runny nose? I had to take a break to go get Kleenex. Oh and I hate Puffs and that oily feel to them. Makes me feel like i have snot all over still.:lol: I know I am full of TMI for you all today. Sorry but snot is running my world this month I belive. Jason got home on Saturday around 5ish I think. We slept imn until 10:45 on Sunday so we were to late to go to Church. We then took a nap from 2ish to almost 4ish. I sleep so much better when I have him to touch even if it is just his arm. OK my diet is none exhistant so far. I start out good and then just go pooey and give up.This week I should be able to stick to it a bit better being as there is nothing here to eat!:lol: I want to go thru my diet food Lean Cuisines etc... I should have enough to get me food all week. OK I sneezed and have to go change.....:lol:TMI again I know:lol:For those that have had kids you should know what I mean!
Kisses and hugs ya all!,

Hey guys!

I am well. Finals are starting and I have lots to do, so.....I will be laying pretty low for the next couple of days. I posted a couple of pictures from my trip a week or so ago, but I think most of you were gone. Take care and I'll check in when I can.

07-13-2004, 12:38 PM
Hello Everyone....Its been cloudy all week and very hot and humid..I hope it blows out of here soon.. I have been busy with just about everything..
Cleaning laundry and took Bert for a haircut and lunch...Had her carpets cleaned and trying to get her family to see the light..
Hope that happens soon..
Tonight Buddy wants us to meet him for dinner.. He has been really tired with this past round of chemo and I hope he is not over-doing it trying to go to dinner.... I told him not to push himself if he wasnt up to it..It will be just me and hubby and his ex wife having dinner..Its os wonderful that he and his ex-wife have a wonderful relationship..She has been there for him durring all of this and he really does rely on her.. I am so happy they have each other.
Everyone else is either on vacation or univailable right now....He wants to do it again when everyone is back and can do it....
I hope everyone can do it then.
The Pool party was loads of fun.. and yes I ate but not alot.. I gained 4 pounds back.. I think it was much salt.. trying different snacks..
Like baked cheetoes and party mix etc.. TOOO much salt..anyway.. I weighed at the gym and saw that and was not a happy camper.. :eek: :(
So its back on the straight and narrow..I have to take the pictures to be developed this weekend at Costco...and get a cd of them to put on here..
I will hate to see the pictures of me.. My roots are grown-out tooo much and I cant get in to have them done untill the 29th of July...My hair-dresser went on mini-vacation and I didnt know she was going....She will be back then..
I look like Scary-spice.. :fr:

Rosey....Have a safe and wonderful trip....I am sorry if I have missed you before you left and that your jeans didint turn out right....When you go to Walmart next time..try on some jeans..I bet you will find a pair you like.... I hope that your weather is better today and when you leave....and that you have good weather where you are going..
Have fun with your family and enjoy..I hope that your allergies get better and your headache goes away before your flight...
We will miss you girlfriend...:love: :wave: :grouphug:

Daphne.....I am sorry that you have a sinus infection....Runny nose is a really big pain...I sure hope that you feel better real soon...I am so envious that you too can sew.. I cant sew anything...I bet Megan's pillows will be really nice. Come on down anytime and we will go to the pool and have a great time...That would be such fun if you could do that.. They are thinking of having another pool party in August..I hope so. This one was such fun..Both me and hubby were tired the next day..I had a hotdog with slaw on it and tried a little of everything....pot salad...mac salad..reg salad..speg salad....but didnt over-do-it.. The food was really great.... I think the salt didi me in..I tried different snack things and I dont use salt or cook with I think I gained from that not the food..cause I really didnt eat that much...
I will work harder at getting it off this week...
I will tell Buddy what you said..We will see him tonight at dinner...
He will be so pleased to hear from you..Thank-you Daphne for your thoughtfulness and kindness..You are such a Sweetie...
I sure hope you feel better real soon..I dont like Puffs tissue either..
Give me the good old scott tissues anyday...
What are your plans for the rest of your summer?? Anymore trips???
Dont worry you will get back on track with your diet.. Its harder in the summer to much going on and things to do and more food..:lol:
Atleast for me it is.. I try to be good..but somedays..what can I say..Ihave to get better..cause the wedding I will be going too is in September and I have to be able to find a decent dress to fit in have to try harder and with all the support from all my YAYA girlfriends here plus Mr Ken..we ALL can do it....I hope you feell better real soon...
Have a great day :love: :wave:

Donna... Your trip sounded really nice.. All the things you all did and saw. Thats great.. I know that Elena must had a great time..Thats wonderful...
Dont worry you will lose...I know its so easy to gain on vacation..Look at me.. I gained and I didnt go anywhere..:lol:...Just to the pool I have to buckle down and get it off....:crossed:
I had to laugh about Elvis lives....He seems to be all over these days..:lol:
I am glad that your sister's pool is finsihed and you all can have fun in it.
These hot days you need a pool to cool off..I hope that the humid weather we all are having dissapears soon...I cant wait to see your pictures.. WOW.over a hundred.. I only took 28...I hope mine turn out..

07-13-2004, 10:42 PM
Hello Everyone....

I recieved this from Dana today and she wanted me to post it to everyone to read.. She is having alot of probs with her server and she is in the process of changing servers and she cant get on her...I hope that she can get it fixed so she can post soon.. I am sure its so flustrating for her.. I know how it feels not to be able to post...or do anything...
I know that Rosey is gone and Kris is busy with finals..but where oh where is everyone else ??????????????? I am missing you all
:mag: :mag: :cb: :cb: :cb: :shrug: :shrug: :gossip: :blah: :comp: :dancer: :cb: :wave: :love:

Hi Summer. I"m emailing you from my bellsouth email cause I can't get online for more than 30 seconds at a time to use my hotmail. I'm having awlful server problems and I may change my IP later on today to someone else. You can email me back on this one today if you'd like and I will get it at least today. (any of the 3fc gals are welcome to email as well).

I just wanted to let you know why I couldn't get on 3fc to post. By the time the pages would load, my internet would hang up. We got home at 3:45 a.m. early sunday morning. We have a very nice time and only had one t-storm on thursday. It was very severe and heavy and even flooded the campground in places and over flowed a lake. It was terrible for the fish and ducks in that lake. We had 3 ducks who stayed around our camper a lot especially at night. It was neat. I'm not sure if I got pictures of them or not but I do have about 100 digitals I took and when I can get online long enough I can upload them to a album to share. I'll let you know when that happens. I'm going to upload them anyway when I can to get prints of them. Other than that thursday storm, it didn't rain on us at all the rest of the time.

I came home to loads of laundry of course as well as having to see after my grandparents garden. We have corn, beans, tomatoes and okra to my ears. Not really but in bags all in my kitchen and I need to cut the corn off to cream it and break the beans. Kevin is working today in place of someone else on vacation so he will be getting in some much needed overtime but I miss the help here. He had to work 12 hours yesterday as well. I have prescriptions waiting to be picked up as well as one needing to be filled and some post office stuff to mail but can't get away today.

My grandfather had his 21 radiation treatment today and is halfway home with his 42 total. He wanted to quit but I think I encouraged him to hang in there. It's working and he needs this to get rid of the cancer. He has diabetes (type 2) which is making it more difficult. He has sugar in his kidneys and a bad infection that they can't get rid of. He was put on his 5th antibiotic yesterday.

I hope everyone got their cards from beach. I got them all alike and mailed them on friday. My grandmother got hers after we got home but most everyone probably did. Everytime we got near the post office in the campground, I would forget to take the cards with me.

I never got to make any of those beach bags out of the caprisun pouches to sell but did make 3 for us to use and they would have been a hit. They got the most attention and were the only ones I saw there. I figured they would be everywhere but they were so neat to take to the pool and ocean and to even carry your clothes to the bath houses for showers.

Well please share this email with everyone or post it on the site if you can and I hope everyone is doing ok and I miss you all very much. I will post just as soon as I can get online long enough. I'm typing this offline to send to my outbox cause it usually will stay online about 30 seconds just long enough to send it.

Love ya,

07-14-2004, 11:06 AM

I am here! I just keep forgetting to post. Summer how did the dinner go with Buddy? Did I miss how it went some where? It is sunny as he** here again today. We have been in the upper 80s and 90s all week. It is amazing how it drains your energy level at that temp. Remember I am in the NW where 80* is a heat wave! I am still having to stick at home with my trash talking daughter. I am getting cabin fever at this point though.
I hope that you sun shine will stay out and play for a bit Summer. I wanna see a tan hot mama come fall. Have fun at class today well I mean tonight. Snacks??? Crunch??? Popcorn, celery, popcorn cakes... Yippie! That is a good one. They come in flavors even have chocolate if you can find them. Jello, pudding, make a soda cake. All you do is add one can of diet soda to a cake mix, stir it up and pour into a 8 x 8 pan. I made a rootbeer cake the other day and it was hecka yummy.
Donna i am waiting to see all those great pictures thatyou took. What is Elena up to now? Have you lost those few pounds of vacation food yet? I know that you will cause I will kick that butt if you don't!:lol: I am joking ya know I love having ya flufflier. Makes me feel less fluffy! I am just rotten today ain't I?
Dana hope u get back online soon, Rosey fly safe and we miss you, Glenn get that bootie back to posting, Kris hope that finals fly bye with ease for you.

07-15-2004, 10:59 AM
Good morning!

Daphne, you crack me up!! :lol: :rofl: I am losing it slowly but surely. But not fast enough. So, you can still have a very fluffy Donna friend! ;) I like you I forget to post. And even now, have to already stop because my child requires assistance. She is driving me crazy. :hyper: :dizzy:

I hope you all are doing well. Kris, I did enjoy your pictures. Forgot to mention it. Dana, I did receive your post card yesterday. Thanks!

I'll talk to you all later when I can.


07-16-2004, 01:02 AM

We didnt go to dinner with Buddy..He called and canceled..he was just too tired and I understand.. Today he got the results of the cat scan..All that Chemo didnt help.... That was not good news.. so they are looking into some new meds for him.. For now they will try to build him back up with blood tranfusions and Procreit.... Poor man..
Thank-you for asking about him.. Thats always so thoughtful and sweet of you Daphne..I will tell him you asked about him and that really makes him happy..he still cant get over all the people that care..I told him that everyone in here is a caring loving person..That we all are praying for him.
You sound like its Hot Hot Hot there too.. Yes the heat can drain all the energy we have.. Thats how I feel after a day in the sun. I hope that you get some good weather real soon..Now how did I know you were gonna say popcorn cakes..:rofl:..what can I say.. I had to laugh cause thats the stuff I dont want..

My Little YAYA Chickie :love: :wave:

07-16-2004, 01:34 AM
I am so saddened about Buddy, Summer. It just doesn't sound good to me. Not that I'm giving up hope but it just sounds all too familiar. I am glad your classes are going so well. With my sister's pool finally opened we are finally enjoying the life with a pool. Elena and I were there most of the day today. It was so nice to have Elena get exercise while I read. So relaxing. It was hot today but you could get in the pool to cool off. I can see how you love the pool life so much. I am reminded how it was when I was younger and I would ride my bike to the neighborhood pool and stay there till I had to come home. I would buy snacks out of the snack machines for my lunch of course I was much thinner then. LOL :D

Sorry my earlier entry was so short. Elena was so demanding at that point that I couldn't concentrate on what I wanted to say. Guys, I spoke to Dee on yahoo messenger today and she is so busy with her job. She is hoping soon she'll be able to post. I was glad I could talk to her some.

I wonder how Rosey is doing. I bet she is having fun with her mother and family right now.

Dana, I hope soon you will be back online. We are thinking of dropping our cable after some recent trouble with them and I think we may go with satelitte tv and dsl for the internet. I thank you for the post card you sent from MB. I hope to be there soon.

Daphne, how are things for you. You crack me up. LOL I thought for sure you would post more today.

Ken,,,,, :cb: where the heck are you? What' up?

Kris, I hope all your school work and all is going well. Would love to hear when you can what your favorite part of your recent trip to Europe was.

Well, this old fat girl is going to bed now. I hope you all have a great Friday

Happy Birthday, Glen!!!!! :hb: :gift: :bravo: :cp: :encore: :cheers:

07-16-2004, 11:45 AM
Hi guys. I'm here now. The transition isn't quite over just yet but I'm running on Netzero right now. We did determine the phone problem is out in the box that our jacks run to. Before I call to get that all fixed, DH has to cut our 3 week old grass. He's having trouble with his lawnmower so I don't know what his plan is. he's off this weekend so I don't care if it has to be cut down with a pair of scissors. :lol: I have got my digital pictures uploaded to have the printed. There was nearly 100 of them. I actually used my video camera more than cameras. There isn't anything too exciting to see but if anyone wants to see the ocean :lol: they are welcomed to. I can see about doing the album invites.

Reading about Buddy reminds me not only of my grandfather who I lost to cancer in 1990 but also my grandpa that's living. I'm like Donna, I'm not giving up on him either but it is familiar. Miracles can happen though. My grandpa had his 24th treatment today with 18 to go. His kidneys are killing him and nothing can be done. His culture came back negative and the pain is due to the radiation he's receiving on his prostate. He is hallucinating terribly. My grandmother found him in the bathroom floor one night this week and he claims his dead brother helped him back to bed. He sleeps all the time and is very weak. They won't see that doctor until monday but if he's ready to give up treatments then I would agree with him. I hope it's not damaging the rest of his body in the process.

Summer what kind of cancer does buddy have? How old is he? I read that you're getting ready for your vacation plans coming up. That's exciting. My cousin and her family are leaving for MB in the morning. I'm envious of course. When we went to the Pavillon this year I talked to a lady at the ticket counter and she told me that about a month ago they had a bad storm and most of the rides were destroyed and had to be fixed. She said some of the most popular ones were down for 4 weeks waiting on parts. Laken rode some rides for the first time in her life. She rode the bumper cars with Dh and she rode the Tilt-a-whirl with me. Then we rode the merry go round and haunted hotel together. We had fun and it had been 3 years since we went that far up the ocean Blvd.

Donna I don't blame you about cable. I'm not sure about the DSl savings but have you looked and compared the prices of your package compared to Dish network or Directv? We've had directv since 1997. I compared it with my grandma's cable and it's unreal the channels she could get for the price of her basic cable. I have a small dilema approaching me today. My mother bought laken her first bras and considering her language delay and whatever, I have a feeling it will be hard to get her to wear them. I could imagine what she may tell everyone and the announcements she may make. :lol: That's why mama wanted her to now so it would be old before school starts back in a few weeks. Have you even begun talking to Elena about that part of life?

So when did rosey leave and when does she come back? I've missed so much and I certainly have missed everyone.

Daphne when does your family get back together and when does school start for you guys? Ours is August 10th and I have to register Brett at middle school July 27th.

Glen how is the weight coming for you? I need to change my chickie here in a minute. I gained 5.5 pounds while on vacation and did lose the .5 but don't know about today cause I was afraid to see it.

Well I am watching the Martha Stewart sentencing now and have loads to do but wanted to touch base with you all and let you know I miss you. BTW thank you for updating us on Dee, Donna.

07-16-2004, 08:17 PM
Off To Do A Few Errands But Wanted To Make A Comment To Dana. We Bought Megan The Sports Bras To Begin With And She Didn't Seem To Care One Way Or The Other. She Now Has A Sports Bra But With The Skinny Adjustabe Straps. I Would Go With That Over A Training Bra That Looks Like A Bra. Walmart And Target Sell What We Have. The Last Ones Came From Target In A Set One White And One Pink And They Are Called Freestyle. Sorry About The Caps But I Was Typing And Saw They Were On And To Lazy To Retype It Today!

07-17-2004, 01:31 PM
Daphne I think those are what Laken has and she doesn't care either at this point. They do look like sports bras with bra-like straps but they aren't padded at all. Like my mama said, it's more like the old timey undershirts that girls used to wear under clothing. When Dh came home lastnight I heard him say "no not yet!" when he went in laken's room. He came out and told me that "she's just a baby". :lol: Well the baby is going on 9 1/2 now and because she is a little chunky in the stomach, she's ready to start training for a bra before she definately needs one. Anyway, I told him "thank you for bringing it up cause she hasn't said anything". Maybe she won't when she gets to school in a few weeks.

My mom got her hair cut yesterday and the lady who cuts it told her about another lady coming in the day before. She said that lady (Mrs. Rogers) is going to be laken's new companion aide. It's funny cause I haven't heard anything about the one she has leaving. I emailed the current one yesterday but haven't heard yet. I hope it was a misunderstanding cause laken had just adjusted to the current one this past year. It takes a while for someone to understand her needs.

I got booted off of ebay once again for having 2 user Id accounts. Of course I don't but they haven't responded to my email appeal yet. Last time I had to fax in my drivers license to prove my address. I don't know where this came from. I didn't have anything on auction anyway and haven't in over 2 weeks now but it's time to start again so hope they clear it up by monday at best.

Donna did your dad and sister get a new pool? I thought you were saying your dad was getting a pool with his new house? We really enjoyed the pools while at the beach. My cousin's family who lives up behind us has an in-ground pool and they left for MB this morning. Maybe I can take some advantage of that one this next coming week. DH informed me that he will be working all this next week including his off days. I like the overtime but some things around here just has to be done by him. He's working on my mom's grass right now with my grandpa's mower and then he will be down here. I want to get some sun soon. My tan I had is nearly gone and ladies if you've never noticed, you don't look quite as "FLUFFY" with a tan as you do snow white! :lol:

Summer I hope you get some good news about Buddy soon. Let us know what you hear and enjoy your pool while you can. It will be time to close it up before you know it but then again, I don't have to tell you that.

Well I'd better send this before I get cut off line again. Hope you have a good weekend.

I sure hope Rosey is having the most wonderful time!!!

Glen, I hope your b-day went great!

Summer, when is your birthday? :hb: ?? :?:

Daphne, Can you send me some of your veggies??? I am wanting a nice FRESH salad.

Kris, Where ya be???? :write: :?:

Dana, my Dad helped pay for a new inground pool that is on my Sister's property. It is on the side that his house is. He helped pay for it so that it will be our family pool. I don't feel real comfortable using it as such but Elena is enjoying it. It's so nice to just go right next door to swim. I know I have a while before Elena will start developing since she is so small. I remember my first bra. Still got it in my drawer. :lol: :lol: :rofl:

Well, we are going out to eat tonight. I don't know where yet. LOL

I'll talk to you all soon...

OH!!! Dee, I hope you are not working too hard.

Bye! :wave:

Hello Everyone..

Sorry that I have not been in here.. Its been a hetic weekend.. We had unexpected company and we all went out and I am beat.. We went to the pool but the weather wasnt that good sun in and out and it looked like rain on Saturday and Sunday more of the same.. Crazy weather...:lol:
I just wanted to say hello to everyone and I will be back after class to run to the the grocery store and prepare for class..
Buddy is off all chemo and the Dr's are thinking about trial meds.. I dont know what will happen.. We didnt do dinner last week..He is still weak..but I do know what all of you are saying about him and I agree.. I just pray that a miracle will happen for him.. It so sad to me and for anyone that has been through this with loved ones and family you all know about it just like you said..I wish I could do more for him but all I can do is be there for him and pray.. God Bless all of you for being such Wonderful Loving and Caring people....Much :love: to All of You... :grouphug:

Glen...Mr Ken..................HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU.... HAPPY 40TH TO YOU...I HOPE THAT YOU HAD A WONDERFUL TIME AND HAD ALOT OF FUN.. :hb: :hb: :cp: :gift: :balloons: :flow2: :dancer: :hat: :bravo:
I do know who Glenn Miller is and I Love his music..I bet the concert was really good.....This is a old Chickie..:lol: Thank-you for the get well wishes for Buddy and Yes that would be great to snap our fingers and all is better..What a great world this would be if that were possible..
Have a great week :love: :wave:

Donna...Dana....Daphne....Kris......I will write to you all later.. I am sorry that I am in a hurry today..I am glad that Dee is doing alright.. Hopefully she can post soon...I know Rosey is having a great time visting her family.. I am not sure when she will return...and Dana..where can I see your pictures??? I didnt understand..and I am so glad you can post again....Donna where are your pictures????? well gotta run.. I will be back this evening after class..
I hope all of you have a great week...:love: :wave:

07-20-2004, 12:34 AM
I am back... Tired and wore out but I am here..:lol: I am like Rosey..does it ever get easier..:lol: Nope I dont think so..I guess these old bones just cant take it...but I will keep pluggin...I hope to go to the pool tomorrow.. it rained here and stormed a little we had to get out of the pool for about 15 min and then we had the class..good thing it was before class actually I got in the full hour..I have things to do in the am tomorrow and hope that by the afternoon I can get some pool time in..Before I know it summer will be gone and the pool will be closed and I will be :cry:..:lol:
Before I forget....I am waiting on Costco for my pictures.. Seems there was a prob with the CD....I dont exactly know what but I will be going there this weekend and they are suppose to have the CD for me...Does it ever fail..:lol:

Donna.....I agree with you about Buddy..Its so sad that he is going through all of this.. Its very familiar to all of us one time or another..It is just so hard to see it happen and know there is really nothing I can do...but pray for him..and be there for him...
I will never give up hope for him and I know that none of you have either but its so hard...Thank-you Donna for all your kindness and caring and prayers for my Dear friend Buddy.. I will always apprecaite it so very much...
I am sorry that you feel uncomfortable about your sisters pool... I hope that in time all of that can be better.. I do love the "pool life" like you said..even as a child I loved going to the community pool...They had to practically drag me home...and werent we all thinner back then :rofl: Oh those were the days
The only thing better is sitting on the beach at MB... I am so glad you were able to relax and read while Elena played in the pool..
I bet she loves the pool too..I hope that you can do that more often and relax..Did Elena's summer camp things end already?? When does Elena go back to school? School starts here after labor day in Sept...Water classes are doing good except sometimes I am really wore out.. I havent seem to lose anymore weight and that really bothers me.. I keep thinking how much more food do I need to cut out??? I guess I need to adjust something food just so slow...I get upset at times..but I have to keep pluggin along..:lol:...and hope it will come off soon...
I stopped having BD's..:lol: I will stay the same age forever...OLD...:lol:
Ok.. its July 30th...Jim is taking my BD off and the following week too..We hope to go to Ocean City Md for afew days.. Not sure yet..or day trips to Baltimore Harbor and Annapolis MD...Not sure yet..but I am looking forward to what ever we do and I hope that the weather is nice for our trips and some pool time together.......Thank-you for letting us know about Dee.. It sounds like she is so very busy....I am glad that she is doing alright...Maybe she will get a chance to post one day soon...
Have a great dinner out tonight and enjoy...:love: :wave:

Dana.. I am so glad you are back on line... and that you know what the prob with the phone is and can have it fixed.. I hope that your hubby can get the grass cut too...It grows so quick..especially when it rains..
I agree with you about Buddy..and you are right Miracles can happen but its all to familiar also... I do understand... Buddy has Cancer of the Lymp-nodes..
I think they call it Lymphnoma..( SP ) I am not sure but I think that means it can be all over his body as we have lymp-nodes everywhere in our body.
I am not sure if the cancer is all over his body...but it has been in his lungs and toncils and back.. he never smoked..I think he is 68..Not sure but thats pretty close..There is a picture of Buddy on our Yahoo buddy site..He is one of the nicest people in the world..I am so sorry about your Grandfather going through so much pain... Bless his heart....Thats terrible.... I will keep him in my prayers.. :angel: Your poor grandmother is going through it too.. Finding him on the floor and all..I am sure she is upset by all he is going through.
I pray that all the chemo has not hurt his body either.
I am sure they will make what-ever decission it best for him.
God Bless both of them
Your other Grandfather may he rest in peace is in a better place and in No pain..but its still so very hard to lose a loved one to cancer..
Thank-you Dana for all your kindness and caring and prayers for my Dear friend Buddy..I will always appreciate that so very much..
I cant wait to see your pictures of the beach trip.. It sounds like you all had fun at the Palvillion.. We never went on the rides there but we have walked all over down there..went to the Ripleys Believe It or Not.. and in all the other t-shirt shops and walked the board-walk area..
I cant wait to go there in Sept... I am so envious that your cousin is there now LOL LOL LOL...what can I say....
I am so glad that they got everything back together at the Pavillion after the storms last month.. I didnt know that..I am so glad that Laken enjoyed the rides.. Thats wonderful for her. I hope that her companion for this year at school is the same one from last year.. I am sure its a very hard ajustment for her with new people and they need to get to know what she needs to be taken care of properly.... I hope that you hear soon about that...
I hope that Laken will ajust to her new bra....She may surprise you and want to wear it.. Something new for her.... I can understand your concern about that..I had to giggle a little about what you hubby said.. Every Father says almost the same thing.....They are to young.. where is my little girl..etc...
You are so right about the pool being gone to soon for me..I want all the days I can get..and I loved what you said about being tanned "Fluffies" instead of white..and that is SOOOOOOOO TRUE..thats another reason why I Love a tan....Year-round if I could do it..:lol: I hope that you get your Ebay account straight soon. I am sure its been a big pain for you...I can understand that..I am sure you will lose the vacation pounds.. I know I will gain when we go.. Cause I will eat when I am there.. I always do.. Cant help it.. to many :T things there...Sounds like school will be back in soon.. I forget that you all start back sooner than here and get out before they do here too..How are Brett and Logan doing???
I am not sure when Rosey gets back.. I am so glad she got to go see her Mom..I know that she missed her so much..
Do you think Martha Stewart will really go to jail???
Have a great evening :love: :wave:

07-20-2004, 01:02 AM

Hi everyone just a quick post Ihave a diaper to change. YECK!:nono::nono:
I went to the County clinic yesterday being as cough is getting worse. She thinkis I have asthma now. She gave me an antibiotic and a RX for an inhaler. My blood pressure was up very high 150/100. It has never been that high before. I did say it had to somewhat with me waiting there for 3 hours! I am not joking. I was in the waiting room with Megan for 90 minutes, they took me to back room shut the door and it was another 90 minutes. Megan was cussing up a storm the whole time and I was doing some major stressing. I was so irritated that I didn't even ask why I was given an antibiotic. I was also tested for stress and used the breathing machine while there. I told Jason that I was shaking so bad after the treatment and he said that yeah being as it is steroids that I was sucking in.:shrug: Don't you think she should of told me that I was taking steroids? Oh well c'est la vie. OK I will post later today after that diaper is changed!:lol::wave:

07-21-2004, 04:20 PM
Hello Everyone.....Sorry fo rnot posting yesterday..I got so involved with phone calls and doing things around her that time got away from me..
I have been doing my usual around here..Laundry and cleaning..The sun has been in and instead of dragging all my stuff to the pool I sat out back of my patio with a neighbor for a couple hours...I hope that I can get some pool time in tomorrow but the weather report looks like showers...
I have class tonight..and so it goes..Before we know it the pol will be closed and I will be :cry: :no:
I spoke to Buddy today and he is feeling a bit better..I was so glad to hear that and he does sound like my old friend..I sure hope it lasts for awhile..
He will not know about the trial meds untill he sees the Dr next its a wait and see...
Thank-You again to ALL of you for your kind concern and prayers and cards..
Its greatly appreciated..YOU ALL ARE THE BEST...
I have somethings to finish up today before class.. and hopefully I can get it all done....Its Hot Hot Hot outside.. :hot: I was playing with the water hose while I was sun was fun :lol:..It was toooo Hot without it..

07-21-2004, 07:03 PM
This may only be short and sweet but had to check in anyway. I've been gathering my grandparents garden and having to deal with all the veggies. Have a big pot of fresh soup cooking now and still more beans to break. As long as we get rain showers and you gather it, it will produce longer and give you more to freeze and can for winter time.

Dh has worked everyday and still is planning to until tuesday. We have to register brett for middle school on tuesday and then he goes to his dr. for app't. I guess his sugar is a bit better but it needs to stay as it until they see how it does in school. I don't want it too near perfect and then it stay too low while he's at school. This new school (only new to him of course) is 2 stories not counting the gym that he will have to go to every day for PE that's in the "basement" so you're looking at a lot of steps. It took me a while to ever get used to them when I started a fresh year.

I've made reservations to go to Cherokee next friday through monday. We haven't been since 2000 but rather than take the camper, we're staying in a bunkhouse which is just a wooden structure with one room and has bunkbeds in it with water and elec. You provide linens and everything else. It's actually cheaper than taking camper but I think we will be without TV. I dont' know if I can stand that. :lol:

My grandpa didn't have his treatment today but had scans and x-rays to see his progress. I don't know if he knows the results now or not but I figured if they did, granny would call soon. I went in to see him lastnight and we talked about 30 minutes and he seemed much better to me.

Donna when does elena return to school? My MIL took brett school shopping today and he got a lot of nice stuff. I think we just need to get him some socks and his actual supplies which we don't even know what he needs until tuesday at best. That's a big help for her to do that but it's become a tradition sort of anyway and they can afford it. :D

Daphne when does your youngest child return? What kind of inhaler did they give you? I don't think ALL are steroids but some of them are cause they open up the tiny airways that are constricted. The twins used to be on them as infants/toddlers. I even had steroids while in labor with them. It takes adjustments but if you have asthma, you need it. Have you noticed a problem with your lungs? You could just have allergies like my grandmother does. She cant be in public and smell cigarettes or even shampoo on someone or she will cough until she wets her pants and struggles to get the inhaler out but she doesn't actually have asthma. My grandpa has asthma though.

Summer how's the tan holding up? Have you seen Dale Jr. since his burning accident? I'm curious to see him this weekend to see how bad it looks for myself. I felt so sorry for him when I heard that. He's lucky to be alive. How is Bert doing? Can you tell me the name of that low carb pasta again? I forgot it and it's not in this months diabetes magazine. I looked for it in Bi-Lo this morning but ended up getting the Muellers brand instead.

Does anyone remember how long rosey will be gone? I"m gonna have to scroll back to see. It seems like forever if she left when I was at beach.

Well this actually got longer than planned but I have clothes to get out of dryer and it's supper time. Hope you have great evenings.

07-21-2004, 09:21 PM
Dana what happened to Dale Jr.? My brats return to school the day after Labor day. I was thinking asthma before I even went to the Dr. with how my breathing is lately. I can not take a deep breath at all. I have been wheezing and having coughing fits to where I finally barf coughing so hard. It is scarry when Jason isn't here and I get one of the fits. I feel like I am running out of air and end up gasping to breath.
That is cool that your MIL took Brett school shopping. Does she ever tale Laken or Logan? Does anyone in your family ever take Laken? If not how does she feel about that? I know with Megan it really pi**es me off how they are all afraid of her. Where are our pictures at anyhow? I loved the postcard that you sent it is on my refridgerator! How are you liking that new fride that you have by the way?
Summer i am sorry you are missing out on pool time. I hope it was a good visit with your friend today. How did the pool class go today? Give Buddy my love when you talk to him next.
Donna how is Elena doing now that Summer is in full swing and vacation time is over? Is she doing any workbooks over the summer? How is my fluffy Sister feeling? Losing any of that fluff?
Glen OK so you are 50?:lol: I was thinking that you were like 25 this whole time!:lol::lol::lol:
Rosey post soon we all miss you. Does famil;y not have a dang computer??
Kris how did finals go and where are you off to now?
OK ya all know how I am terrefied of frogs.... I went outside to dump the cat litter and I hear this plop into the creek. THERE WAS A FROG!!!!!!! I ran back inside and then was thinking OK I am a lot bigger than that damn frog and I am afraid if it? We are talking I hope tree frogs and not big frogs... This happened a few weeks ago when i was mowing but I thought it was a stick that go shot out from mower. Now hubby thinks i will mow back yard again?:nono::nono::nono: I HATE FROGS!
:wave: Daphne

Hello Everyone..
Just a quick note.. I have to ge to the Store and pick-up some RX's and do some errands before the thunderstorms get here this afternoon.. another No pool day..
What can I say..:cry:..Maybe the weekend will be better..:crossed:
I will try to check in later today...when I get back....
You All have a great Day..and good weather..:love: and :grouphug: :wave:

07-22-2004, 11:10 PM
Hello Chickies...
I am pooped..:lol:..Had a good workout tonight..We got some thunderstorms late this afternoon.. I was worried that they would cancel the water class but thankfully it stopped before it was time for class..I wrote a letter to the manager of the gym about some of the things we ( women of the class ) think that needs to change to make our class better.. How I got this assignment is beyond every one signed it and we shall see what happens...I hope that we get the changes we need to make our class better.
Tomorrow I get a much needed haircut.. I look like Scarey Spice right now with my roots grown out so much and my hair is to long.... I get my roots and hi-lite done next Thursday.. I will be like a new woman..:yes:
I always love it when my hair is done..It makes me feel good..
Buddy is doing alright at the present and I spoke to Bert today...
One of her sisters is there with her through the weekend.. Thats good news..I hope they continue to be there for her..
I sure hope we have good weather over the weekend..
I want to go to the I am doing the good weather :dancer: in hopes it will help..:lol:

Dana.....I can smell that veggie soup from here..Yummy.. :T :T
There is nothing any better than fresh veggies from the garden..I know you are glad that there will be plenty to freeze or can for the winter...
Thats great..I hope to go the the farmers market next Wed..I love thier stuff.
I sure hope that Brett's sugar stays good while he is in school and out and that he adapts to his new school without any problems.. I am sure he will do great..He is such a little trooper.. Bless his heart he has been through so much and has done so well..Thats cause he has a Great Mom to help and guide him all the way... Have fun when you go to Cherokee.. I had to laugh about what you said about having no TV...You can do it..I know you can :lol:
I am so glad that your Grandpa is better.. I will keep him in my prayers..
I sure hope and pray that his scan results are good..God Bless him..he has been through so very much.....Bert is doing good for now...
I pray it stays that way for her.. Her family is with her for now.
I hope they stay longer.
Thank-you for your kind concern for her and Buddy..
You are such a Sweetie.. :yes:
Dana..did you put any pictures on the Yahoo group place?? I scrolled back but I cant tell if thats what you meant or if you had already did it..
I cant seem to find that yahoo group??? I dont know why??
I am working on my tan.. I am afraid if our weather doesnt clear up soon I will lose what I have...I havent seen Jr..but my hubby did and he said he was alright compared to he could have died..and he is so very lucky...I agree with you..Hubby said he will be fine..I guess he will drive Sunday... he is just like his cant keep a good man down..
I wish him all the best in his recovery..and hope he wins...
The Pasta you want is "Dreamfields"..go to thier web site and it can tell you if any stores near you carry it. Our Safeway store has it..2.00 per box.. Thats only a dollar more than regular Pasta..
It is the bomb... Looks like..cooks like and tastes like regualr pasta.. You will never know the difference except the carbs are not there like reg pasta. It has 5 grams of digestable carbs per serving... I cant say enough good about it.. I hope you can find it and try it...:bravo: :cp: :T :hun:....I dont know when Rosey is due back.. I miss her.. Maybe Donna knows...
Have a great evening :love: :wave:

07-22-2004, 11:51 PM
I had to start another post..I didnt want to lose the other one..

Daphne.... I sure hope that you are feeling better..and that your meds are working..I hope that you are getting some rest too...I hope that your hubby is helping you so you can rest..
I am afraid of snakes like you are afraid of frogs... :faint: :fr: .....
I know how that frog must have scared you..:yikes:..I have been so lucky not to ever run up on a snake.Thats my biggest fear..Iknow I would have the big one if that ever happens.....:faint: :fr:
Its awful to be afraid of things like that..but we cant help it...
What are tree frogs?? I never heard of them??
I will tell Buddy what you said..That is so nice of you...That lifts his spirt..
Thank-you for all your very kind concern and caring for him.. You a such a Sweetie..:yes:..I had a nice time with my neighbor yesterday on the patio..
The water classes are going good.. All the ladies plus me want to make some changes to make our class better and I sure hope we get them...
How are your children doing??? What will they be doing untill school starts back?? They start back when the kids here do..Sept after labor day..
I sure hope that I can get to the pool more..Summer will be over soon and I will miss the pool and al the nice people there. We have so much fun..
Have a great evening :love: :wave:

07-23-2004, 01:54 AM
I'm so sorry I haven't posted.

It's been one heck of a week. I have spent every day (except today) at my Dad's hauling containers/boxes etc to store in my sister's garage because he is to be out of his house on the 30th. We were to have a truck this weekend and haul the furniture but because the electrician isn't done and inspections we will wait till next week. We can't put it off much longer though.

Summer sorry the pool and the weather have had some conflicts. We have been next door to "the pool" most every day or every other day. I am actually going to have a tan! LOL

Dana, glad your grandfather is doing better and that vegetable soup sounds heavenly for sure.

Daphne, feel better girlfriend! YES I'm still fluffy after all these years. Getting fluffier too. :) :yes:

Kris? KRis????

Glen or Mr. Ken I would love for someone to make a ten year mistake on my age as well. You are one lucky dude. LOL

Rosey, I hope you are having a good time with your Mom .

NOTE: no I don't know when she is return.

Dee.... We miss you!!!

Well, I'm going to go now. I have a great weekend if I don't post before.

See ya!


07-23-2004, 06:18 PM
OK I was going to post but it is too hot in office and it is makingme sick. It is 97* outside right now and it is just after 2. They said it is a possibility that we will pass the record of 107* today. I will try and post when it cools down.
PS I can't even go out in the sun with the meds they have me on!

07-25-2004, 12:00 AM
I hope everyone is doing good.

07-25-2004, 02:39 PM
:wave: i guess everyone is in a pool keeping cool. i gained again.
:) glen

07-26-2004, 11:09 AM
Not really much to report here.

Daphne it's not as hot here as it is there. I was shocked to hear it gets so hot in washington. It's 75 at 10 a.m. right now. It wasn't too bad yesterday even. I only recall maybe 3 or 4 hot days this summer. We've been spared it seems. Hope you feel better. Where's that hot tub? Can you cool it down??

Donna, my sister is moving into her new "digs" today. She's taken today and tomorrow off to try to accomplish that. She only moves 2 houses over so it shouldn't take a lot of time for her. I"m proud of her for doing what she's accomplished from having a baby at 16 to being married for 6 years (not to childs father) and building a house. I wish I could move into something bigger but like I told her, we have 2 vehicles to make payments on, taxes and insurance, they only have 1. Her Dh is a cable guy and has the company bucket truck. They don't pay for satellite like we do due to having the biggest cable package free for working there, they don't have internet bill or only 1 working with 3 children. I hope I didn't offend her but our situations are a wee bit different. have you heard anything from Tracy?

Summer to tell you the truth about yahoo, I signed on with my name last week and it had cancelled my email cause I hadn't used it in 90 days so I wouldn't doubt if they didn't shut our site down but if I can recall the link, I can try as well. I haven't put my pictures anywhere other than on I'm not sure how Donna does it the way she does or I could try that. It does take a while to upload pictures with dial up. My grandpa is doing well. I don't know results of scan but granny told me it was actually more for them to tell if they needed to change the angle of the radiation or not. He has 15 more to go and his strength is up some from where it was.

Rosey I miss you! When are you going to make landing in alaska??

Glen I've been on that up and down diet myself. Did manage to lose 2 pounds in last day but I know it's water from all the watermelon and tomatoes I eat.

Today is Dh's last day in his 8 days straight of working and his legs and feet are killing him. He has next 2 days off and friday we are scheduled to go to Cherokee for 4 days. I'm looking foward to that but it will be first time without camper. We have to think of everything we use and take it and hope there is room in car. We have to take our own towels, sheets etc. too cause it's not furnished with nothing more than bunks with mattresses. Tomorrow Brett goes to register for middle school and then the afternoon he goes to dr. His sugar isn't in quite as good control as they are going to like. He still runs in 200's for the most part. I know it's because he is so independent now. He can calculate his food and does his insulin himself and so I don't know much of anything about it unless I get the meter and check the memory to get his results.

Well I am going to post this before I lose it with it being so long. That's funny that I thought I didn't have much to say. :lol: I have one of my big tanks set up for some fish I won off ebay. I had no idea they sold fish and I've even found an auction site for nothing but aquatic animals and supplies. We still have our turtles that the boys got at the beach. they haven't grown too much in 2 weeks. They are about size of half dollars. Daphne, by the way, I'm terrified of frogs too. I guess it's the slimy fact and that they can jump to your face when you don't need them too. YUCK!

I am sure I wont get a chance to be on here and I will miss all of you.. I will try if I can but not knowing where we will be I dont know if its possible..
I am excited to go on some day trips to places we havent been..Like Baltimore Harbor and tour the big sailing boat of the 1700'sand so muchg to see and do...Its about 2 hours from here...and we are going to some other places too....All of this is weather permitting.. So I have my fingers :crossed: that we will be going..

Summer, as good as you have been you deserve an off weekend. Hey and when I talked to you earlier you did not gain, so you can do that from time to time. Just don't make it a habit like I have. :lol: I am so excited about your upcoming vacation week. You both sure do deserve it. It's been too long hasn't it? Thanks for the pictures... ALL of them! ROFLOL And if your tan is fading I guess you were black before????????????????? ROFLOL :lol3:

Glen, I am sorry you gained. That's the story of my life lately. When I'm stressed, I can't lose. Is that what is up with you? Stess? :stress:

Dana, hope you are having a good time. Rosey, we hope you are having a good time too. Kris, I forget where you are now. You go so much! LOL

Dee, hope your week is going well and you are resting up from the weekend. :)

I have to tell you all that I will do better with posting when this move is a done deal. Thursday we are renting a truck to move his furniture and I hOPE that his house will be ready that he can sleep there that night. If not, he's with us.... LOL UGH! :stress: :lol:

I can't believe how fast the summer is going. Soon, my Elena will be heading back to school.

I hope to talk to you all soon. cleaning his "old" house tomorrow.
