Hello Everyone :wave:

Doni....It was so great to see a post from you!!!!! :cp: I have missed you!! We have all asked about you & wondered what happened. Have you had time to go back and read some of the old posts? Welocme back!!!! ;)

Dee.....On Debbie's video: I started it off with her being a baby,young child,young woman, her husband,kids,grandkids & family. I ended it with friends. I played a special song for each group of pictures. It was very nice. She cried a lot!!

I want to tell everyone bye. I'll be leaving in the morning for Gatlinburg for the weekend. I don't have time to post to everyone because I'm trying to wash clothes and pack. I still have a lot to do and I'm so tired.

I hope to see lots of posts when I get back!!!! Hopefully one from Ramona,Vicki & Carol too. I sure miss them! :grouphug:

I love you all....I'll post Sunday night.

10-20-2005, 11:08 PM
HAVE FUN ON YOUR TRIP SHERRY! We will all miss you, so have your typing fingers ready for your return!! LOL!

Shelley, let us know if you can if you decide to leave the area. THINKING OF YOU!

I'm tired too!!! I need to confess seems like all I do is run in circles. Today was my day off and I had an appointment scheduled. After the appointment, I came home, grabbed some lunch, checked my email and proceeded to make my way into the livingroom and recliner. TWO hours later I finally made it back up! I ended up falling asleep and wasting most of the day! It was soooooooo nice! I had no one around and I didn't need to run errands etc. for parents and family.

10-21-2005, 06:44 AM
Welcome back, Doni!!! We've missed you so much! Are you still with husband? Last time you were here, he was being a *******. I can't believe DD is 13!! Did you do something special for her on her 13th bday? Please let us all know what's been going on in your life. Also, you had just getting your vision back, as I remember. How is it now?

Sherry-Have a great time in Gatlinburg.

Gayle-You needed and deserved the rest. I'm glad that you were able to get some down time in your hectic life.

Dee-I didn't realize that the wedding was so far away. At least they will be prepared for married life by then.

School is out today, even though it could have been in. Looks like Wilma won't be coming our way until late Sun, early Mon. My guess is that we won't be going Monday either. I was supposed to get my hair highlighted Tuesday, but I'm sure that won't happen. I am going out for a long run this morning, just in case the weather prevents much running this weekend. Gotta get my 30 in for the week. I only need 9 more, so I'll probably do that today.

10-21-2005, 08:16 AM
Good Morning Everyone!

I got this message from Doni to post for her because she could not get in to the website, but she apparently made it logged in on her own.

At any rate she gave me the motivation to come back to you as well. I have missed you all.

I see Sherry is on her way to Gatinburg. Good for her. I hope she has a great time.

It will take me awhile to go back and get updated by reading all the past posts, so how about you gals give me an update and tell me what you have been up to and what has been happening with everyone???

I am still recovering from my ankle surgery. I am up and walking on it (slowly) but I have a brace on it. Next week I start physical therapy. I still have a great deal of problems with the ankle that has not been fixed as well so I am hoping to get that one done next year.

I have to finish getting dressed for work, but I will try to check back with you all later.



10-21-2005, 10:41 AM
Carol-Welcome back! I just got back from a drizzly 9 mile run. Now off to Walmart to fight the hurricane crowds. I'm only going for sf/ff fudgsicles and salad dressing. Who cares if they will melt? I'll probably eat them all before the electricity goes off anyway!!LOL>

10-21-2005, 12:07 PM
Hello all!

Got a "good" report from my colonoscopy yesterday. "Good" in quotation marks because I don't have cancer or hemorroids, but I do have a fissure, or tear. I have to start eating a high fiber diet, taking stool softeners every day--whether I need them or not--and am no supposed to use toilet paper ever again.

My mid-term tests are over so, for now, I am stress free. I do have a paper due week after next, but I'll worry about it tomorrah.

Glad, so glad, to see Doni and Carol back!!!!!!!!!

Shelley, I've been and will be thinking of you in the coming week.

Gayle, feels good just to lay around for a while, doesn't it?

Sherry, enjoy Gatlinburg. Hope you don't have to sit in traffic for hours!!

Love all--Cheryl

10-21-2005, 03:48 PM
Doni you some sort of jeannie (sp? can't spell you got me too excited)pulling men out of your lamp? I wish I could do that when I need one! Now get your mind out of the gutter, I mean to help around the house.

Sherry have a wonderful weekend. Laundry, you seem to do a whole lot of that! Do you only wear one set of cloths? Enjoy your weekend. We will work on lots of reading material for when you get back. It sounds like you made a touching video for Debbie. I am sure that Debbie will always cherish that.

Carol I am glad that you are back posting. It must feel good to be up and walking again even if you do need a brace.

Shelley, yes it is a long wait til the kids get married. They will have been going out 5 and a half years by then. Stay safe. Hopefully the hurricane will die down before it hits Florida. Enjoy your day off.

Gayle do you wear glasses? Maybe with getting the drops yesterday it made you extra tired. Do you think our guys would feel guilty if they took a long nap on their day off? No! So why should you? You needed it so don't feel bad.

Cheryl I am glad that most of the news was good news. Now for the stupid question......if you aren't suppose to use toilet paper again.....what do you do?
Do you need a bidet? I am so dumb.....;(

Well I better go and fet something done. Enjoy your weekend and post lots for Sherry to read.

10-21-2005, 04:28 PM
Dee--Nope, you're not dumb--that's the same question I asked!!!!!

He wants me to use disposable baby wipes or other cleaning cloths.

How inconvienent, huh?

10-21-2005, 09:41 PM
Cheryl, I'm glad the worry is over for you and now you know your condition and what you need to do to ease the discomfort. Nice to see you here posting on a regular basis.

Carol, I'm glad your back! I'm surprised to hear you haven't started therapy yet on your ankle. Is there a reason why they postpone it so long after surgery?

Dee, I wear contacts during the day and glasses in the late evening here at home. I have wore the same brand of contacts for around 10 years now with great success. This doctor now decided I have cornia erosion caused from not enough oxygen getting to the eye. He prescribed me a "newer & better" contact which is a gel type and will allow oxygen to the cornia. I said no, but he told me I had no choice in the matter. Soooooooo, being the stubborn soul I am, I will give them a try and make sure I follow proper maintenance in changing sets etc. In 1 year I will go back, if there is no improvement to my cornia, I will be finding a different doctor. Honestly, I think my old ones are fine, he just wanted to prescribe me the newer style. Makes me suspicious when I have so called cornia damage but yet my vision has not changed over the past 5 years.

Shelley, do you eat the blue bunny brand fudgesicles? If so, I will send you some coupons.

10-22-2005, 07:44 AM
Gayle-I have never tried them, but I would love to! They are more expensive than the ones I eat, so maybe with a coupon I can afford them.

Cheryl-I was going to ask the same question Dee did. No the next silly one. What about flushing the wipes?? I didn't think that you can do that.

Going out for a run. Wilma's not supposed to show up until late Sunday.

10-22-2005, 10:35 AM
I'll send you some out in the mail Shelley!!

Cheryl, what was the doctor logic in using a baby wipe? To me the roughness would be about the same as toilet tissue. Is it because it cleanses after each use? HMMM...never thought we would be having an on going discussion about bathroom habits. LOL!

10-22-2005, 11:07 AM
hello all!
sherry,have a great time!

Doni-What a wonderful thing to happen for you. Your metamorphisis must be amazing. Send pictures! As for Brian, what an idiot and verbal abuser. Sounds like you may be headed for some trouble from him when you leave. Please keep posting. I am behind you 100%!!

10-22-2005, 12:03 PM
thank you shelley!
your support means alot to me!
thank you!
i dont have the means to put pics on the internet ,do you?
maybe i could send you the pics and you could post them.ive no clue how to do that.
thanks again for your support!
nouther pic of the guy who looks like him.

10-22-2005, 03:00 PM
Doni- Please be careful what you do. Brian sounds like a nut case who would hurt you if he found out. I am also behind you 100%. You are doing wonderful things for yourself and your daughter. Jason sounds like he is what you need. I will be happy when you are out of that environment it is not good for you. You deserve so much credit to be able to finally look out for yourself and love yourself first.
I wish I had your willpower. Stay STRONG.

10-23-2005, 11:16 AM
thanks for your support janice!
yes ill be glad when its over to.
thats why im doing this the rite way!
if i leave in a hurry he will be furious!

and no he has never hit me!
he is a verbal abuser
doesnt realize hes driving me away.
i wished i had willpower id already be gone!
im trying to stay strong.
thanks so much!

10-23-2005, 10:44 PM
Doni, take it slow & easy and everything will work out like it should. I lived with an abuser (physically/mentally) for 9 years and speaking from experience, I can tell you...think of only Cat & yourself. Do what is best for the two of you. You are leading by example and you need to be the one to show Cat she should put up with this type of treatment when she becomes involved in a serious relationship.

Shelley, are you guys ok? Did your city have an evacuation order? Prayers sent sweetie!

10-24-2005, 09:36 AM
Doni - Please be careful. You need to get out of that siituation as soon as you can. I have a friend who is mentally and physically abused. From my perspective it is so hard to listen to what she is living with. She takes medication to cope, but she won't leave. I think an abuser wears you down so much that you don't feel you have any worth.
I have begged her to get out but she just doesn't even seem to hear me. I have given up on saying anything, I am just there when she needs me.
Shelley - I was watching the news this morning and saw Wilma was hitting Miami.Stay safe and let us know how you are doing.
Sherry - How was your weekend?
Hello to everyone else

10-24-2005, 10:09 AM
Carol, how's the ankle this morning? Hope you're feeling good.

Shelley--check in as soon as you can! You know we're all worried about you!

Gayle--Hey, sweets! It was a chilly 42 degrees here this morning. I thought about you.

Doni--I agree wholeheartedly with the other ladies who have posted. You need to do what is right for you! Brian sounds like a dick. I can't believe he smacks off to the puter when he has you right there--that would hurt my feelings so bad!!! And all that crap about him saying you were too fat and then wanting you to gain the weight back after you lost it is just bull sh--!! He doesn't appreciate what he has, but he'll make a show of wanting you when you try to leave him for Jason--just watch!
Don't give him the satisfaction!

Dee--I had a dream the other night that I took a train trip to Canada.

Sherry--hope you had fun in Gatlinberg!

Gotta go! I'll check in later today!

10-24-2005, 10:21 AM
thanks for your support ladies!
means the world to me!
gayle,your rite on the head!thats exactly what im doing.
i dont want cat even to think this is the norm and just because you are a sahm you hafta be treated like this!
she even cannot believe how much he has changed toward me.
he will say something and her being 13 now shell roll her eyes and say good grief dad stop it!

its 40 degrees here!
shelley,im thinking bout you!
was watching 52 most of early morning!
plz check in when you can!
prayers ,prayers,prayers!

10-24-2005, 10:42 AM
Shelley, sounds like Wilma is hitting you guys????? Prayers sent to you and yours, please, please stay as safe as possible and know we are thinking and praying for you!!
We will be waiting to hear from you!!!

Cheryl, chilly here this morning too. We even had frost on everything....I am soooooo dreading winter!

Janice, I'm glad to see you posting and it seems like your spirits are up. Happy to hear your working things out. When I was in the same situation as your friend, I was told how no one else would love me or put up with me. He scraped away at my self worth until I felt useless. Also there was the HUGE fear of what he would do if I actually left or made him leave. When I finally did do so, he did come back into the home one time and thankfully I could get Liz out the door and to her grandma's home next door. He knocked me over the bed and tried strangling me with the telephone line or belt?? Don't know...I do know I fought back as hard as I could, even leaving scratches on his face. By the time I could get away and call the police, he changed it around to were I was physically abusing him! He had "proof" by the scrapes on his face!! He also did such nasty's as cutting my phone, cable line and calling nightly at all hours theatening to come to the house and kill me or set the place on fire. For anyone in an abusive situation, it takes all the courage one can muster to try and get out of it. I feel deeply for your friend.

Doni, it sounds like you have everything together and I wish you only the best. Will you try to leave or are you having Brian leave? He wants you to gain the weight back because he is jealous of how good your looking and he knows others are looking at you. Most abusers whether physically or mentally, have very low self esteem and are jealous of their partners. They also try to make you give up any contact or limit contact with family or friends.

Well better get to moving this morning! I should be paying bills instead of on the computer!

10-24-2005, 09:54 PM
Hello All :wave:

We got back home last night. I unpacked a few things,took a shower and went to bed. I'm tired tonight from working all day and from the weekend.

We had a wonderful time! :) The chalet was soooooooo pretty! We walked all day in & out of ALL the shops! Saturday night we drove to SC and went to a casino! We only won $40.00 but better then nothing. I also ate,ate & ate all the no-no's I couldn't have!! :rolleyes: I weighed this morning and I had gained 2 lbs! I'm not changing my tracker though because I'm hoping to lose it this week.

I need to go back and read everyone's posts. I'll have to post to everyone tomorrow night. I need to finish unpacking and go to bed after I read the posts.


Love to all.........

10-25-2005, 10:40 AM
Sounds like Shelley's area was hit, but not as bad as some of the other areas. I'm assuming she must be one of the 6M+ without power in Florida. Hopefully she and her family made it through without any major problems or any injury.

Glad you had a nice trip Sher. You deserve it! I have never been to a casino or tried my hand at any type of gambling. Every so often I buy a lottery scratch off ticket....does that count?? LOL!
Don't worry about the gain, fluid retention is an evil thing!!! ACTUALLY, I read, to gain 2 actual pounds, you would of had to eat 7000 extra calories, so it is probably water retention.

10-26-2005, 09:58 AM
hello ladies!
gayle,yes its pretty much as you pointed out!
i am taking it 1 day at a time.i am taking the route he will hang himself then i can make my move.rather us fight bout the same crap then i can get out rather than he find out bout whats going on behind the scenes.not only do i hafta live with him ,THEYwork together!
both are supervisors and they duke it out dont want anyone losing there jobs!
hopefully jason can go into the office as a architect,more money for him plus brian wouldnt be able to GET to him.
cuz he will be furious.then again he probably wont give a ****.
just 1 day at a time!
yes i know he is jealous,he said he didnt think id look like this!
you cannot lose 50 pounds and not change!

sherry,glad your back and had a great time!
yes the 2 pounds will come off.when you go away i dont think your diet should go with should enjoy!

shelley,thinking of you hard!
i hope its just the power,post when you can love!
praying for you!
went to the dr.weighed in at 226 fully clothed .dr. was so proud of me!
i have a upper respitory infection and laragitis my voice was a sqeak,course brian was delighted i flipped him the bird and said i can still yell at you with my hands!lol!
today i go for my check up on my eye,just a 8 month check up.its fine but was my appt forever.
we had a frost warning its 38 degrees now. hope we at least have a indian summer,so not ready for winter!
have a great hump day!

10-26-2005, 10:13 AM
Doni, you are doing fantastic with the weight loss!!! You are a different person physically & mentally then the one who use to post here! I am so glad your spirits are up and your looking toward the future! You and Cat deserve happiness in your lives.


Where is our little Dee hiding out?

10-26-2005, 02:52 PM
Good news!

I got my 1st two tests (from school) back and made A's on both of them!!! Yea for me!

Shelley - Where are you??? We have never gone this long without a post. I watch the news and it looks like a lot of damage.
Doni- You go girl!!! You are doing great with your weight and your self esteem.
Sherry-So glad you enjoyed your weekend. The weight will melt off.
Gayle - Thanks for the chuckle.
I got all the stitches out of my hand, and am getting the other one operated on November 4th. My boss called today to say the staff and residents are missing me. I miss them too. I go back to work on Saturday but then I will be off again with the other hand. I don't plan on taking as long, I am left handed and had that one done first. I just supervise so I can get away with using only one hand for a week.
Good for you Cheryl.
Hello to everyone else.

10-26-2005, 10:35 PM
Hello :wave:

I hope all is well. I'm trying to work AND rest up from my trip this past weekend! :yikes:

I felt so bad when I read your post to Shelley about the BB coupons! Did I tell you THANK YOU for mine??!! If I forgot, PLEASE forgive me sweetie. I'm so sorry if I didn't tell you. I really,really appricated them. Give Steve a big hug from me. I'm almost out! I have used them all. How's work & your Mom?

Again..Welcome back! I hope you stay around this time!! LOL! I was reading all your posts and a lot of it reminded me of my first marriage. It was a marriage from ****! He was very abusive & controlling. I think that's why I dated Wayne for sooooo long!! (Almost 5 years!).I wanted to make sure that he was who is really acted like. A wonderful man he is!! I think the only thing left to say along with all the others...which I truly agree to all posts....Is TO BE HAPPY!!!! You can't be a good Mom to Cat if you aren't happy! She's #1 and what will make each other happy is what you should go for!!! BIG HUGS!! :grouphug:

I'm so happy that you got the stitches out!! I know you can't wait until Nov.4th and be fully well with both hands! I'm sure your work does miss you. Please don't go back too early. And follow doctors orders!!!! Don't overdo it. Are you still following LC? I messed up last weekend going to Gatlinburg but got right back to OP Monday! :)

CONGRATS on the tests!!!! :cp: YOU GO GIRL!!!! I'm soooo proud of you!!! I think you need to go celebrate! Are you still doing LC too? How's it going? Did you make the spinach dip?

You have been in thoughts and prayers. Are you ok????????

Dee....Are you ok? when you go a couple of days without posting I start to worry!!

Hello to to everyone I didn't mention. Ramona & Carol....If you're reading this, I love & miss you!! :grouphug:

Vicki....You ok?

Hugs to all.....

10-26-2005, 11:39 PM
Sher, no need for a thank you, that's what bestest buddies are for!! I will give Steve a hug from you though. He feels like he knows all of you because I am constantly talking about everyone here on the board.

Janice, I'm glad the surgery went so well and you can get your other hand done so quickly. I have a pycho SIL that wanted both hands done at the same time! Instead her doctors told her she was "somewhat crazy" and no need for surgery at all! LOL!

10-27-2005, 09:24 AM
I'm here!!! I'm fine, just no power. I am using Mike's business laptop. I tried the other day, but couldn't remember my password. I finally remembered my email password, so I was able to get a new one from 3FC.

We had tons of trees on our property blown down. The only problem with the house was the chimney thingie. Mike had to cover up the hole on the roof. We won't be able to use the fireplace, but then again it's been a few years since we have, anyway!

I have been cleaning the yard. It is still a mess. We had a very large pine blow down in our front yard. Fortunatly, it blew sideways and not onto the house. Mike cut most of it up yesterday. I threw all the cutup trunks over the fence and the neighborhood kids took it down on our trailer and their 4 wheeler to the trash. Our drive is still partial under water. I was 6 inches deep, but most of it has gone down. I have not been able to run, and feel quite guilty. I have only gotten in the 10 miles that I ran on Sunday. School will be out until Monday, because there is no electricity there. I plan on doing more cleanup today, then possibly running tomorrow morning. I have really wanted to save my energy for cleaning the yard. My parents got their electricity back, so I'll be going over there for a shower later on today.

Cheryl-Congratulations on your awesome grades!!

Doni-Your weight loss is awesome. I can't wait until you are rid of the jerk and living happy!!

Sherry-I'm glad you had a great time in Gatlinburg.

Janice-I hope all goes well with your other hand also. I am praying for you.

Gayle-Too funny about your SIL.

Thank you all for caring and praying for me. You all are wonderful friends and I think of you all the time, whether I'm posting or not. I don't know when I'll be able to post again, so just remember that I love each and everyone of you!!!!

Shelley, it was a WONDERFUL surprise to get on here this morning and see a post from you! I have been very, very concerned about you!!! I assumed you were without power but I still was worried. Thank you for thinking of us and posting a quick message to let us know you are ok!

Doni, I noticed on the exercise thread you posted about doing belly dancing. Is it fun? Would like to learn but I'm too embarrassed, I can just imagine the huge rolls of belly fat wobbling around everywhere!

Shelley I am so happy that you posted. I have been worried about you. I am glad that you are all safe. Don't worry about not running with all that yard work you are doing you are burning calories. I am just glad that you are all safe.

Doni take care, and thanks for sharing. You know that we are all here to support you.

Sherry I am so happy that you had a wonderful weekend. You deserve it. Thanks for caring..... I thought I better post before someone thought something was up. Sorry.

AWESOME JOB DONI!!!! Not long before you will be seeing the 100's!!!!

10-29-2005, 08:53 AM
Doni-I didn't know that you are a Days fan. I have been watching it for almost as long as it's been on. Of course, I hate it, but have to see it everyday!! I have been doing my yardwork in the mornings so that I can watch it on the tv with the generator. I usually record it everyday, so of course I haven't been able to.

Still no power. The guys were on the same block all day yesterday. I never saw them actually working. I went by 6 times and saw them sitting and talking most of those times. They told Mike that it would be restored yesterday or today. Well, it wasn't yesterday. I'm hoping for today. I took a cold shower yesterday, and it took my breath away. Today I'll be going over to my parents for a hot one.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DONI!!! :carrot: :hb: :bravo: :gift: :hat: :dance: :woo: :balloons:

I really like Mimi and Shawn together. I just hope that the baby is Phillips, so Mimi and Shawn can stay together. I love John and Marlena, they are my favorites. I hate the storyline right now. John needs to beat the **** out of the psycho Dr. North. I like Billie and Patrick together. I love to hate Sami and Nicole. I like Austin. I am hoping Sami and Lucas finally get back together, although the Asian girl is really sweet. I can never remember names when I am trying to. Can't think of her name right now. I don't like Bonnie, although I think having her get together with Roman would be cute. I can't stand Kate. I think they need to kill her off or something. Couldn't stand when she and John were together. I love Jack and Jenn. I love Frankie too. Always like Bo and Hope. I do like the storyline with Chelsey and the wicked stepmother. I guess I just love the whole show!!
