Jane~ welcome back!! I hope little MaKenzie feels better soon.

Evenflo emailed Tommy back about the snap being broken. The lady claims that the warranty doesn't cover the material. So, she suggested that we take it back to the store.

Oops! I was posting away on the other thread Angie as you were starting a new thread! Just going to paste my post from there to here.

Good morning chickies...

THANKS ANGIE! I too hope for a quick sale. Just when I was wondering if anyone was ever going to call to see it we've had a showing Friday, Saturday, Sunday and one scheduled for today at 2 p.m. I'm thinking it is this guy that I happened to see drive by yesterday. I just happened to look out the window and saw a green Ford Escape coming up the cul-de-sac...he was driving slow and looking real hard. Then pulled up front and got one of the flyer's and continued to look at the house before driving off slowly. It's funny, because I hardly look out the front because our bedroom is in the front and I'm not in there during the day unless I am folding clothes or cleaning. I was in there cleaning the window seat and saw the neighbor across the street come walking over slowing, looking around to see if anyone could see him. Ummm, duh, LOL! I thought he was going to get a flyer but he just stood there and read it, lol! It was funny because he looked like he was trying to be sneaky. Anyway, it was kind of funny and then right after he walked back over to his house the guy in the Escape came down the street. Anyway...at least today I don't really have any cleaning to do, just vacuum right before I get out of the house. They may not like the house when they see it, but at least it shows good and is clean. You know...when Smallville first came out I watched it every week. I think for the first two or three seasons. Then they switched the time and day like they always seem to do and I haven't seen it since. Like CSI and The O.C.-haven't seen those since they put The O.C. on the same time as CSI and then changed My Name Is Earl to the same time. So...My Name is Earl and The Office won out over the other two.

SUSAN...well, Mike really showed his true self didn't he, finally. I figured it was just a matter of time. From the beginning, I always felt he went after you because he was jealous of you and Rocky and the only way he could get to you is by going after Gaby. I don't think he actually cared, which is sad. Well, maybe one day he will wake up and realize he has two daughters. Glad you went to court with the ex to support her. Yay, for getting tickets to see the Wiggles! Did you get to talk with Rachel again? Be careful about giving in too much, too soon.

MINDEE...I had a double stroller when DS#2 was born, man what a life saver. Of course DD never cared for being in the stroller, she demanded to walk so I ended up pushing the stroller around empty half the time. Of course strollers are different now days.

JANE...glad you guys had a nice time and sorry little Mckenzie got sick. Hope she's feeling better today.

MARTI...hope you are having or had a nice visit with your sis. Can't remember if she was just there for the weekend or longer.

Hi to everyone else

I guess I should get going. Need to get a couple of loads of laundry done and look up a couple of things online. Since I have to leave for about an hour today, I am going to the park and walk...Ernie needs a good walk too. He is loving that he gets to go for so many rides! If you say "wanna go for a ride" to him and he goes nuts! Anyway, have a great day ladies!

MINDEE...I would have just taken it back to where I bought it and exchanged it. It could have been broken during shipping or something. And most store would be glad to exchange it, especially Wal-Mart, Target and even Penneys. They have always been so nice about returns whether I was getting a refund or exchanging something. Anyway, hope yo get another one that's not broke.

Have a good one ladies!

Hi gals,
I don't have much to say, the weekend wasn't like I had planned at all! Not too happy, I've seen my sister for only a couple hours.

Anyway, I'm going to get a cup of coffee, feeling really down.

I'll catch up on everything later.

Cristi~ We would have exchanged it, BUT all the boxes were all mangled. So, we went to KMart to see what they had. They had one, but we figured that we would look around some more. I think tomorrow we might make it to Target.

Hey all, got an email from my SIL, it was a continued one from Friday, was my brothers birthday so I had called over and said, once I was up and around I would drop off his gift. Anyways she went on to tell me that our dad is being a total butt head. I don't know you all realize this but my birth father lives 10-15 minutes away from here. I haven't spoken to him in almost 5 years. Refuse to. And as Ive always said to Arden I would never put him in the middle... and just don't want to talk about him when we are hanging out. But this weekend Arden really got a taste of how horrible he is,,,he went over to thank him for his birthday gift which he had shoved into the mail box at their house. It was a gift Cert and snide remark about Arden being way too busy to come over and get it so he made it easier for him. Well Arden went over and was told to leave and never return. hmmmm serious butt head. Out of 4 kids,,,we have a step mother who has a son same age as Arden. And all 4 of us have nothing to do with them. Our sister Ruby was cut from the wil about 8 years ago, Neil 7 years ago, and me 5 years ago. I guess the SPCA will be getting all their junk!...lol I shoudln't make a joke of it, cause I know my brother is hurt.
Thought about writing a long letter and really letting loose on how I think his behaviour is abusive,,,and that he needs to seek help for his mental issues. Possibly go on to say in reality he has cut every family member out...and he will die an angry old man. That the neighbours will have to call authorities on the stench days after hes dead....(ok thats over the top...lol,,,but oh so true) I will probably let this alone though.

Im heading to bed,,,feeling sore today...going to need a pain reliever, which is so weird for me. The whole week I took nothing and now I am?
night

Hiya ladies,

Angie - Makenzie is a little better. She has mainly cold symptoms now - fever, runny nose, cough, etc. Sorry that your dad is being a butthead. You'd think he'd do the math and figure out that HE is the problem since none of the kids want to be around him anymore! Hope you're pain-free today, Ange.

Marti - So sorry the visit with your sister didn't go as planned. I'm guessing she used the time to do other stuff than be with you? Hey, I'll be your sister, ok?

Cristi - hope you get an offer on your house soon, chicka! I'm just now getting around to answering your ZOO question... I do like zoos, but since my visit to Portland, if I go, will be short, I'd rather spend the time doing something that is special to Portland. I don't like to be gone from home long. If you've noticed, I never go on long vacations.

Mindee - thanks. Hope you get the snap situation taken care of.

I've got a mountain of laundry going. And I've been cleaning. Stocked the fridge yesterday with lots of fresh veggies and some fruit. I'm back to counting WW points, and feel good about that.

See you later!

Just a word on zoos Jane...

Portland Zoo is famous for the elephants. It is a very beautiful place and special to Portland.

(((Marti)))) hope you are feeling better

Hello ladies...

SUSAN...I bet the Portland Zoo is fabulous! I always figure the Zoo's are a favorite/special place and a highlight of any big city, which is another reason I make a point of seeing them. Plus...I love the animals, reminds me of home! JK. well, maybe not!

MARTI...I too am sorry your visit with your sis didn't go as planned.

ANGIE...sorry your dad is a butt head. It seems like people like that would think about their actions and what it does to others. But then there are some people who just don't care and never will. Hopefully, he will wake up before it is too late. Hope you have a better day today and the pain pill helped ya. Remember to take it easy girly.

JANE...don't want to repeat what I wrote to Susan about the zoo. Glad to hear Makenzie is feeling better and you have your fridge stocked with the good stuff!

MINDEE...I am always leery of buying something in a crushed box too! Do you guys have a KidRUs where you live? We have one in the ToysRUs and they have lots of baby stuff.

Well, our 2-3 appointment yesterday cancelled as I was walking out the door to leave. Okay, first...you would think before they make an appointment that they would make sure they could get off of work first. Second...they could have called earlier. I go through this routine an hour before they are to arrive that is a pain in the a$$ to have this house look good for prospective buyers and I really hate that I work my tail off so the house shows well. Then I have to gather a bunch of stuff to take the dog. And for them to call as I am getting ready to walk out the door is nonsense. Of course I know people do this all the time, as the realtor said but still...they said they will have to reschedule which for some reason I doubt. The funny thing...our realtor mentioned that the realtor that called him to make the appointment is the realtor that had a client that put in an offer on the house we have a pending contract on. Apparently, it wasn't a good offer because we haven't heard anything about it-no news is good news. Oh, the stress. I think the stress level of selling/buying is horrid! Anyway, I am sitting in my jammies today and being lazy. Soon as I get off this I am headed to make my bed and take a shower. Also, get a load of laundry done. Glad I got my walk in already. I get so lazy with that sometimes. Wish I could get motivated again and get back on the weight loss wagon. Was thinking about going to a TOPS meeting and see what that is all about. I see the sign in front of the church around the corner all the time. Also, I've heard that most of them are always old people, which isn't a big deal. The good thing is I could walk to the meetings-kill two birds with one stone! I've been so stressed since Josh left for Hawaii for some reason and then to top it off the house and I have been stress eating. I never used to do that, what happened?! Anyway...

Hi to everyone else Take care ladies and have a great day!

Hey all,
slept in big time this morning,,,took one of those percocets,,and in knocks me out...I don't like them cause then I have the weirdest dreams...lol

Cristi, what a great idea,,,about walking over to TOPS meetings. About emotional eating you are in the midst of 2 very stressful issues, and the good thing is you know you are emotional eating,,,and are taking action TOPS and walking. Don't be too hard on yourself.

Jane, so glad lil Makenzie just has a cold,,,with the fever thought she had an effection too.

I have to take Brandon to our family Dr. He is in agony with his feet, there is no way he can continue with this. He sees the specialist on Monday but till then,,,and its not like the specialist can wave his magic wand and Brandon will be pain free, so thought lets get ahead of the pain for a bit. (like I can talk..lol)
anyways should get him up and we can hopefully not have to wait too long...
later

How are you feeling Angie? How much time before you get to go back to work?? Still recouping?

I didn't mean Ho to everyone, I meant Hi......honest - haha

I better go. Just working on the Rachel thing and court issue with Mike. Same ol same ol.......

I went to Trader Joes yesterday and bought these yummy sesame pretzels. Soooooo good. I watched Grizzley Man again last night and might take Walk the Line home. The residents watched it over the weekend.

Best on your house Cristi!! Major stress in life for sure. Take it easy!

((HUGS)) to Mackenzie, hope she feels better.

k - starving!

ANGIE...(((((HUGS))))) to Brandon. I hope they get to the root of his feet problems and fix it once and for all. I feel for him, it's gotta be hard. Glad you got to sleep in. You know, I try not to be so hard on myself but...there's alway a but. I should have had this weight off a long time ago. I've decided and hope this will help...instead of doing 20 pound goals making it 10 pound goals, my signature reflects that now so maybe that will help in making me feel like I have accomplished something. So...since I was goin gto give myself a treat after each goal I think I owe myself one. Now to figure out what. Still thinking about that charm for my bracelet or possibly a pedicure. We'll see. Hope you and Brandon get in and out of the docs real quick.

SUSAN...forgot to ask about Rachel...have your heard from her? How's she doing? How's Rebecca and lil Miss Gaby doing also?

I better get going. Need to jump in the shower. Oh, I had to take a break for a few minutes...heard this big thud and looked out the window to see that the top of the swing had come loose and was flying in the wind. OMG! This wind is horrible today! I went out to put the side back on but decided to just take it off so the wind won't tear it up again. I just fixed the slit in the top of it and it ripped again! Not sure if we can find a replacement for it. But anyway...I was trying to hold onto that thing while piling the patio chairs onto of one another because they were in turned over in the yard. Then pushed the table and umbrella up against the house. Man, I felt like I was going to take flight at any moment. That topper was like a big parachute and it was wanting to fly! Had one heck of a fight getting it in the house but finally did. Geez, louise! Put it in the garage for now. We are supposed to get some storms later. Did get a little bit of rain early Saturday morning, but not enough to even count. So hoping we do get some tonight and tomorrow. Who cares if I get wet tomorrow! We NEED it! Okay, I'm outta here. Have a good one ladies!

Thanks for asking Cristi I spoke with Rach this morning.She didn't go to school , had a stuffy nose. Told her case manager that she didn't want to do family counseling and was told if she didn't she had to leave the youth house.
Whatever it is called.......so, she agreed to do that. She can only stay til Friday. I go after work for a meeting.
Beck is fine, crabby this moring.
Gaby is a doll. She is so funny. She handed me her video this morning to return and when I got in the car she started crying saying she wanted the video *grrrrrrrr. I go "you handed it to me and I asked you if you wanted it and you sad no!"
I talk to her like an adult. lol.........

Question

Hello ladies,
I have been reading your chitchat for several days now, and am trying to get you all straight, it will take some time. It appears that you all have a nice tight little group going here, and I don't want to butt in, but I used to chat on this forum a couple years ago and I made lots of nice friends then things got crazy and I lost all contact. Would be nice to make some new friends again.

I do have a few questions. What kind of surgery did, I think it's Angie, have? and what is wrong with Brandon's feet? He is just a little guy isn't he? Christi I can feel for you with the house stress, I haven't moved but I had inherited my mom's house when she died several years ago and after a couple years had to sell it... I actually sold it twice with much to do inbetween,, so I can relate to all the stress.

My son Josh is getting married this Aug. and I have decided this is the time I am going to lose my excess weight. I bought a encumbant bike and am riding it every other day.. today I worked till 1, then came home, had a light lunch and rode 6.5 miles. I really have to push myself to do this. So if you ladies have any little tricks or incentives please share them with me. May I ask how each of you are doing in regards to losing weight? I feel like I am doomed to be what I am.. even though I keep trying to get rid of it, it hangs on for dear life.

Ok well, I'll see what you gals think, if it's ok for me to join your chat or whatever.

Ginny
