Thumbs up Looking For My Ya Ya Sisters

OK Guys or at least Daphne, I need to talk to you all more often than what we're doing. I am restarting this and if you would like to drop in or even lurk and at least hear from the rest of us, I would be happy.

Daphne I am so surprised but happy to see that you posted on that thread yesterday. I am going back to it in a minute to redirect you to this. I will also post more later on today about where I stand and what is currently up with me and you do the same.

I'm not going to post direct comments to anyone other than daphne at this point unless someone else posts. That way I can keep it to the point and then see if anyone comes back to us. I do miss all the girls and miss hearing what is going on with you all.

I am happy that my YaYa sister came back to me! I was just asking Donna if she had heard from anyone and she said she had heard from Summer is all. I will post more later today but wanted to get on board here with you right now.

Man you are online early. Well let's see where to start to get you up to par. I applied for SSI for both brett and Laken and was originally denied for brett. The lady who filed for me encouraged me to go as far as the judge hearing so I did the appeal that just lets someone else look into it again. As long as he's ruled "uncontrolled" then he can qualify. I don't know who told him he was in control cause he's not. They are pushing him to try the pump when we go back may 5th. That isn't "in control". At any rate, I haven't heard from lakens and I applied 10 days earlier on her. I'm sure she can get it but just the waiting is so long. She said allow up to 120 days and it's been about 70 now.

I was waiting on the SSI money so we can buy our new home. We did go look and talk to some people and because kevin's credit score is so low, we need to own our land. We can get qualified for a land/home but then we don't want to move and it would cause our payments to go up. Anyway, this land we're on is mine but not officially deeded. If when we buy our home and it has to have closing costs on it, we can have the land deeded in the same process. We still have $10,000 to go down on it. So we just elected to wait to see how much laken's check will be. My granny made the comment that it will be laken's house if she's paying for it. No matter how you look at it, we just need it.

As for our new addition, we will know by friday for this month but I don't think so. My sister is a month ahead of me in trying but so far she hasn't either. This is her 5th month attempt. I had a vision the other day that told me she couldn't conceive but it may have been for me. Whatever God has in store is acceptable for me. I know what I want but it's ultimately up to him. The only true let down is I had already collected a few boxes of stuff for a baby that are either new or close to it. I have won a bunch of cheap auctions on ebay and ran into some clearance stuff along the way as well. Between me, my sister and my cousin, somebody is bound to have a baby.

I have gained up more weight since going off the pill 4 months ago. We ended up getting some kind of stomach virus and I lost 11 pounds in less than a day. I know if/or when I get pregnant, I will loose it that fast as well because of the fluid and in the past, my pregnancies, I lost more than I gained because of the morning sickness that lasted all day and night.

Logan got up with a black spot in his eye on thursday and I took him to the pediatrician and she said it was a floater. His retina's were fine. Well considering he had the same thing as an infant that took laken's vision, I have an app't with laken's eye specialist in late april just to be sure. Logan has gotten used to the spot because the only time he sees it is when he looks to his left.

We have 2 running cars now. Kevin bought him a 2000 Explorer on valentines day. Knock on wood... That car has less miles than mine and is a bit newer as well. Now if we can just spend about $200 to put a hitch and lights on, we can get that camper back out that's been idle since last july.

Well I think that's all that has happened right now. I may come up with something else later on. It's wet and chilly here today. What's been up with you daphne? Didn't you have a computer problem? I had a harddrive crash last week and had to reinstall everything and I'm not getting pop ups at all. Go figure but so far I haven't lost my post. Hope to hear from you soon!

It's been forever since I participated in a thread and I think that the timing is needed now for that seeing that keeping in touch via email hasn't been working too well. LOL

We just returned from Disney World where we spent for the most of our Spring Vacation. It was a wonderful time but at 4:00 a.m. on the morning we were to check out I started vomiting and found myself after Urgent Care couldn't help me and I was so dehydrated that they sent me to ER for Iv's for fluid. They suspect food poisoning and I feel like it is true. Ended up spending the night in a hotel that evening or should I say for a few hours then we left for home yesterday and came in last night. I am not completely better but feel better than I did. I am telling you I heard that food poison was bad but now I know how bad it was. I have never been so sick in my life. I wanted to die.
On the wieght loss front, it's always a roller coaster ride for me. I'm at where I should be but have to really watch it because it's a fine line of whether I could re-gain it again and have to start all over again. I keep my WW tools handy and will try the best I can.
Dana, I sure hope you can get SSI for both Brett and Laken because it sure will help. I also thank you for starting this thread. I don't know how often I can post but will do the best I can.
Well, need to call it a day.
Thanks again, Dana!

Thanks for joining us Donna. I have been waiting for the site to come back on so I could post. Happy Easter to everyone.

I had emailed you yesterday to tell you I had food poison before and it's a terrible sickness and on your vacation as well. I am so sorry you had to endure that. Did the rest of the family not catch it? That's good if not. My kids start their spring break tomorrow and will be home the whole next week. Our school district is on a different schedule from you guys anyway especially starting before most counties.

Brett's school was discussing holding him back this year due to failing math the first half. Their report cards last week, for the first time, he has all B's & C's and the C' only liked 1 or 2 points from being B's. Of course his final average in math has to be at least 70 to go to 7th grade and he had a 62 first semester.

We're not doing anything today. The boys are gone to easter dinner with inlaws. Laken doesn't even like to try that cause she hates eggs all together. The twins will be 10 on wednesday and I guess there will be some sort of cake middle of the week. I really need to grab hold of my eating. The stress from waiting to hear about our home and then wondering if there will ever be a 4th child just makes me eat it seems. My sister is in the same boat. She's on her 5th cycle trying for a baby and it's not happening for her. 12 years of being on the pill isn't in her favor either.

Well I hope we hear from daphne again soon. I am about to freeze with temps at 52 degrees here with drizzle. I hope we don't get the bad storms they are talking about this afternoon.

Dana,
Thanks for the email. Elena is back in school this week. Luckily for me neither Jim nor Elena got sick. I was the lucky one and I am still having problems with it. I think that it aggravated my hiatal hernia big time the reason for my feeling bad still. I have an appt. with my doctor on Wed. morning.

I hope they don't hold Brett back. It just doesn't seem to me that they should of been even considering that when it was just too early in the school year. Elena is doing quite well although we have our ups and downs.

to the twins on Wed.!!!! It's hard to believe we have so many ten year olds now! I wonder if Summer or Rosey will find us. I need to go now. Have a great day!

Donna

Waahooooo OK I am here finally. I amdoing Curves since the start of the year. Too bad I am eatting like a pig. I skipped weigh in last month being as it was TOM and I was up. This month was just way to stressful and I ate way to much. I do love Curves and love seeing my bicepts and other muscles. When I get back from spring break at the in laws next week I am going to rejoin weight watchers. Oh yea I am leaving tomorrow for my in laws house so pray for me.
Dana I am so sorry that you are under such stress. I hope no I know you can get your eatting under control. It will be so much easier to get preggers with less weight. I know that added weight and getting older can hamper getting preggers. I thought I was way to fat and old to get preggers and my Gyno said OMG no! That my age 40 is a common age to get pregggerswith our hormones going all over the place I guess! How is Logan doing? Is Lakens aid a good one? How is Bretts sugar levels?
Donna I loved iming with you the other night. It was so nice to chat and not have kids bugging me or a hubby. Did you have fun on that trip? WHat are next years plans for a trip? How do you keep that weight off woman? I am very inspired by how great you are doing.
Rosey!I miss talking here with you woman. Let that DH know that my DH went and was looking at property and was at a place called Elk Ridge and he say a hugh hear of elk. He counted over 100 and was just so excited. Gee if UI lived near you my hubby would be hunting and or fishing with your DH all the time How is he doing anyhow? How is the family doing and how are you doing? How are the cards going?
OK I will try and post tonight if there is any posting if not I will be back next weekend.
XOXOXOXOXO Daphne

Hi girls.

I'm still among the living. I'm busy (as I told you, Dana). I'm in a grief support group weekly, I rejoined my Church I grew up in and am so happy about it. I joined 3 bible study groups, too.

All this church stuff came about because my best friend Debby bought me "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren for Christmas. I bought it for her too after that 'cause she said she wanted to read it when I was finished, but it is a book you really study and not just 'read'. Anyway, she and I did the book (it's a 40 day thing) and it really sparked the spirit in me. If you can, get a copy and do it. It's amazing.

I started the newsletter again this month, well, for April actually. And we started a Red Hat Society here at the Smith Center and they made me the "Queen Mother"! Just what I need...something else to take me away from finishing going through Mom's stuff and getting my apt back in order!!!

Yes, nothing has changed in that arena, Dana!! At least I didn't put up any Christmas decorations this year.

I have to get off here. The back is still hurting when I sit, stand, walk, do anything too long. I'll be back to let you know about my plans for traveling this year.

Love,

Daph, that book can change your life if you let it! I love it!

I just finished a newsletter. I know, Daph, I still haven't sent you one to see! Hey! Guess what I found...the postcards I wrote you from Kansas City...in 2003!!!!

Gotta get off. I'll be glad to get to know you all, Donna, Summer, etc. Donna, I think we posted together before maybe?

Love,

Gayle, your screen name does look familiar to me. I don't remember what forum you and I were in together but I believe you are right!

Rosey, it's so good to hear from you and I'm so proud of you sticking with Curves for so long!

Daphne, are you feeling better? I don't know why you would be so impressed with me. I'm forever going back and forth losing and gaining just to lose some more and gain some more! LOL The book "The Purpose Driven Life" will change your life, so watch out! It's a great book!

Guys, I'm still struggeling with trying to get straightened out from the food poison. I have a hiatal hernia and now that is the problem. It can give you false indications of heart problems and I have been in pain. I went to the doctor on Wednesday and await for some blood tests to see if I still have the bacteria.

Going to go now. I hope you ALL have a great day and HAPPY FOOLS DAY! LOL

HOORAY for you, Rosey!!!!!

I have been biten by the scrap book bug, Rosey. I was just at A.C. Moores today and bought a few items to start the Disney memory book and Elena's over-due book. I did a brief one on Jim not long ago. All this stuff sure can get expensive but I'm buying a little at a time and having a lot of fun with it.
