Boy not much going on in here yesterday. And by the way Skeeter is very sick, so she won't come in til she is feeling better. I hope the rest of you aren't sick to. Today is my shopping day. I have to take a fish by the shop and see if they know what the heck is wrong with it. I've had this sort of thing before and no one could tell me what was wrong with them over the phone. So I've decided if this is something that is going to be happening all the time I want someone to see it. That's what I'm going to do If she ain't dead this morning. I haven't looked yet, because our hours are so crazy I don't like to turn on the light on them too early so I cover the tank with a dark cloth. I have more problems with my fish and work harder than anyone I know at feeding and keeping things clean. OH well!!!
Marybeth~~ Looks like it's you and me. I remember one of the hardest things for my Mother was when she had to leave her home. At the time I didn't give it much thought, but later when I reflected on it, I can't imagine leaving my house for the last time. Getting old is not a fun thing. We sold my Mom's house after she was gone. I've waited my whole life waiting for things to get just right and then I could be happy. Things never get all lined out, there's always something going on that isn't perfect. I must admit your life is a bit turned upside down right now. I will all come out OK, it'll just take time.

Thank I'll go and sew some more before time to go to town. I hope everyone is feeling well.

Hello All

I have only been gone for 2 days but it seems like forever! I have been quite busy the last two and I didnít get a chance to come in and read what was happening. Okay that isnít totally true Ė last night was not busy. Dh was working on a deadline so I knew that he would be home until 9:30 at the earliest. So I decided to make the night mine. Once I got home from work I grabbed a bowl of leftover soup that was in the fridge and ate it while I started the tub. After I was done gulping down the soup I slipped into my sanctuary. I poured myself a glass of nice red wine, lit the candles around the tub, turned out the light, and slid into the bath (heaping with bubbles of course) and dove into my book. Oh was it heaven!!! Once I got to hot Ė I like steaming hot bathes but canít stay in too long, I grabbed my robe and my book and curled up on the couch with kitty. I didnít turn on the TV or computer all night. I donít remember the last time I treated myself like that. It felt soooo good. The funny part is that hubby is home today and stuck with all of the dishes that I had ignored. Wonder if they will all be magically done by the time I get home.

Sally: Glad to hear that you havenít gained! Good for you. Sounds like everyone is getting really busy right now. Especially those of you with kiddies. Donít know how you do it. Hey glad to hear that your treadmill is being put use. Our weather here has been pretty good. We had a cold spell but it only lasted 2 days. Unfortunately one of those days was the day I set to run my 10-miler. I have to admit, I treated my self to a steamy mug of FF hot chocolate when I got home! But now that it has warmed up, it hasnít stopped raining. Oh well I would much rather have rain in February than snow. A new mountain bike?! Ohhh how exciting. Does your hubby ride as well? Sounds like it could be a fun family thing. I donít blame that guy for being on the Runnerís World Website. Itís great. Not that I would ever be on it at work. Wow your girls really are doing great! You should be one proud mama!

Skeeter: I am so sorry to hear how sick you and dh are! You have my wishes for a speedy recovery. 45 Ė 50 miles? That is amazing! He must have had a great pair of legs! Thatís too bad he hasnít gone back to it. Sometimes it is so easy to slip out of it and soooo hard to get back in. I would love to see a picture of your ďpooch-in-a-pouchĒ

Jen: I am pooped just reading about your ordeals with school, work, the car dealership, and the bank! I hate dealing with the dealerships as well. When we bought our last car, I made poor dh do all of the work. All I did was sign on the dotted line. Have you had your legs checked out yet? That sounds like a terrible thing to live with. Glad to hear that you are getting breakfast in.

Moonstone: Yes it is spring here and we have the rain to prove it. I donít mind the rain so much except it smelt like wet dog on the subway yesterday. Oh I wonít forget womenís hockey. I have a date with dh tonight to watch the women win gold! I love your kitty story. Did hubby mind sleeping in the ďdog houseĒ?

Mb: Sorry to hear about your momís fall. Hopefully she will enjoy her new home. Glad you did manage to away for a bit. Itís good that you may have some time to look for a new job. Then you can be more choosey and not have to take the first thing that comes along if it isnít what you want. Grilled cheese and goodnight sleep sounds good to me too! I do hope that you have the dry days on the weekend for the move.

Marlana: Sorry to hear that mama and babies didnít make it. However, your new babies sound beautiful. Tonight should be a good night for womenís hockey. Hope youíre ready to settle for the silver. I saw really interesting show the other night called ďTaking it OffĒ. It is a documentary type show that is falling a group of people through a period of trying to lose weight. One woman said she really needed a visual representation of her weight. So she started a paperclip chain. She bought all different colours of paperclips and every time she lost a pound she added a clip. Then after every 10 pounds she switched colour. I thought that was a great motivational idea. Not only do I have a fellow Canadian here, I have a fellow Torontonian here! I love you picture of Cleo! Your tank is also beautiful. Is that the one you worked so hard on cleaning up? If so it was worth it! Thanks for the update on Skeeter. Hope she is up and about soon.

Jojo: When I first read about your hubby toolbox I thought it read $400 and then I realized that there was another 0 to that number. Yikes! Iím glad that he is enjoying his new job. It is good to have a hubby who comes home happy!


Well I think that is all for now. I just got some good news. Our director is taking all of the support staff out for a nice lunch tomorrow just to say ďThanksĒ. Gosh what a great place.

Have a good one!

Tobey

Good afternoon gals. I found a few spare minutes and thought that I'd get my butt in here. Things are usual around here for me. I ended up getting a new car last night. I'd been working with the salesman for over a month and got it down as far as they would go. I made sure they knew I wasn't in any hurry, make them desperate to sell. I got a '02 Olds Alero. I traded in an Alero for another one. I had alot of rebates, and got a 5 yr warranty. I did pretty good. I just hate dealing with salesmen though. No matter what, I always feel like they snuck something past me and I paid too much. Oh well, at least it's over for awhile!

Mom had a bunch of teeth pulled this morning. She's doing pretty good. Took a couple tylenol with codeine and fell asleep on the couch. Of course, as I'm sitting in the waiting room, my wisdom teeth start in. Guess that means that I'm next.

I'm pretty tired and think I'll go take a nap before I go to work at 7pm. At least it's only for 4 hrs tonight.

Hello Everyone

Its cold out today and we are getting flurries. I just wish we'd get some accumulation.

Oh boy, state employees are in an uproar today. First it started out with the Governor requesting everyone take a furlough day without pay and the union balked not because of the furlough day, but because he was still threatening layoffs. So then we got the papers that we have to take the day whether the union wants us to or not or they will pick the day for us to not be paid for. I don't mind that. Well now the gov is being vindictive and yesterday paper said there will be over 3,000 state employees laid off because the union is not cooperating. He wants us to give up our annual raises now and the union is saying the contract cant be opened. Today's paper had an article where the Governor was asked about if he and the legislators, reps and senators were willing to give up their raises to and he replied that its constitutional that they get their raises. Our contract is binding that we get our raises. Oh, our governor is a HYPOCRIT and luckily he won't be in office after this term. I've been so mad all day over this. I can't even stand to see that mans face. He is very vindictive.

Marybeth, wow, 12 hours sleep must of felt pretty nice. I'd love to sleep that long but usually I wake up to go to the bathroom and can't go back to sleep.

Marlana, it was quiet in here yesterday, thats why I waited till today to post. I'm anxiously awaiting the ice skating tonight. I've got my fingers crossed for Michelle and the other 2 American girls. I'll pass your tip along to dh since he is the one who washes his own work clothes and I'll have to stop by Dollar General to see if I can find some Mean Green for him to use. Boy, you do have a lot of problems with your fish.

Jen, congrats on your new car. I think thats the one that replaced the Cutlass.

Tobey, I told dh this toolbox had better be the last one he gets. He told me that with the last one he had but then he decided he need this one which cost about $1000 more than the other one. He promised me this was the last one. It is a good heavy one. I couldn't even help him lift the top box out of his pickup truck last weekend when he brought it home. They used a fork lift to get it in his truck. There weren't any tools in it either. We should all treat ourselves like you did last night. I'm thinking about soaking in the tub for awhile myself tonight as my low back is bothering me again.

Skeeter, hurry and get feeling better. We miss you.

Well, I've got to get going. Talk to you later.

Morning Ladies,
Hope everyone's doing okay today; I'm all right, I guess; Jeff has to work all day today--Fridays are usually just overtime for him, but they are extra busy lately, so it's an all day affair (let's hope not! ). So, my dinner won't be cooked when I get home like usual on Fridays-booooo. But he gets time and a half for 10 hours----yay. I'm just glad he's at least working, with the job market like it is now. We have one plant laying off 1200 people at the end of the month, so they will be out looking, if they aren't already.
Skeeter, hope you and hubby are up and around before you know it....my supervisor has had a horrid time the last couple of months with bronchial stuff--she went from sinus drainage to bronchitis, to pneumonia, and now she's got it again. Must be a very bad year for that. I've had pneumonia every year for the last nine years (must be something my oldest daughter did to me--I got it for the first time when I was pregnant with her) but so far, not this year. Get lots of rest and lots of fluids and feel better soon!
Mama, did you get those fish straightened out? You may need a fish doctor! Poor things, they have had a time, not to mention Mama! It has been quiet in here lately, hasn't it? I guess folks are either not feeling well, or still eating Valentine's candy & Girl Scout cookies I hate it when that stuff is staring at me, saying "just one, just one." I usually make it one box, though, not one piece. This year I put my Girl Scout cookies out in the lounge---I told everyone I was contributing to the fat fund...better on someone else than meeeeee!
Tobey, sounds like a lovely evening you had! I haven't had one of those since the kids came along. A closed bathroom door instantly means they either need something out of the bathroom RIGHT THIS MINUTE, or they must, simply must, talk to me and only me, RIGHT THIS MINUTE. I've taken to taking a shower after they go to bed, but still sometimes I hear a scratch at the door when the water starts running and a little voice.....they must wake up just to interrupt Mama. Jeff does have a mountain bike too--he bought his when he got mine, but mine is a 2002 model, so it's a bit nicer, and more expensive The girls got mountain bikes for Christmas this year. So hopefully it will be family thing for us---we biked last night for about 30 minutes; we live on a hill and that was all Mama's legs could handle! I have to get into this gradually I think!
Jen, JoJo, MaryBeth, Moonstone, Carol & everyone, love you all, and I'll try and shove my way to the computer this weekend. It's the girls' dad's weekend so they won't be here some of the time (they're so thrilled! ) There is an RV/camper show in town tomorrow, and Jeff wants to go, so I guess we'll go check out the new ones and come home and see how inadequate ours is ! I hope he doesn't get the "wants".
Love you all, and talk to you soon!
Sally

Good Morning~~I'm breaking my rules to myself this morning. I ended up going back to bed this morning. Staying up and watching the Olympics is killing me sleep wise. I was pleased with the skating last night almost. I felt real sorry for Michelle, but she was just off, and I'm not sure the 16 year old didn't skate better than Michelle can anyway. She done just like Kara done 4 years ago, she just skated so good and so easy. Was really glad the Russian didn't get gold.

Tobey~~ Congrats to you and the girls Canadian Hockey Team. If we have to lose to anyone I want it to be to Canada. I don't know about you but we didn't get to see much of the game at all. Today I want to see USA beat Russia really bad. I'm sure they won't show much of that game either. US TV has to make room for commercials you know. I'll say one thing for you, when you make up your mind to relax, you sure know how. I like the paper clip idea by the way, that's neat. I thank I'll do that and glue them to a magnet and then put them on the fridge.

Jen~~Girlfriend the car salesmen will be talking about the tuff woman they finally sold a car to for months. Good for you. They thank women are push overs. We are not all push overs, some times I know more about things than they do. Not cars but building things. Don't you just love the smell of a brand new car.

Jo Jo~~If it isn't one thing with your job it's another. I'm going to bet you have a ********** governor. Which ever he needs to go. Girlfriend he couldn't be any worse than the little pipsweak we have here in Okla. I now live in a right to work state. I thank I live in the state with the most stupid people in the country. Let me tell you something, politicians take care of their friends and them selves. They don't have any idea how a working man lives. Most of them don't pay their fair share of taxes. Here we go, I just hate them. (((((Jo Jo I wrote all the above at least 2 hours ago. I was outside working and thanking and I thought about what I had wrote to you and decided I better come in and take one word out, I could affend someone. You'll just have to guess what it is.
Sally~~ Don't even mention those dang little fish. They seem to have something that looks a bit like fin rot. Jen is not the only nurse on duty now. I have a hospital tank set up. grrrrrrrrrrrrr I tell you its something all the time. I thank the problem is I try to keep them too clean. I go to the pet shop and their tanks are dirty, I don't know how they keep anything alive. I hope you can keep the camper fever down in your hubby this week end, because the only thing to cure it is a new one.

Since I broke my rule, I must hit it now, and hard. Have a good week end everyone. I'm missing you Skeeter. Get well soon.

Howdy All

Well of course I spent last night watching womenís hockey. What an exciting game despite the reffing. There were a lot of bad calls! Naturally I am very proud of our women. I also think it is fantastic that the Swedish women won a medal as well. They almost were allowed to complete in the Olympics because their country did think they were good enough. Well they showed them! In fact it is the womenís hockey and not the menís who are bring home a medal. Now thatís GIRL POWER. At 2:00 our time is the semi-final Canadian menís hockey game. A lot of people are trying to get out of work to see it. I donít think I will but they are going to try to get the game on in our office.

No real big plans for the weekend except tonight. Tonight I am going to an all girls Pampered Chef party. It should be fun except I am a bit worried because out of 20 women I will only know the host! I plan on treating myself to a few gadgets. I have already gone through the catalogue and have my eye on a few items.

Jen: CONGRATULATIONS on the new car. Wow have you worked for it. Iím sure you got an amazing deal. Hope your mom is recovering. My wisdom teeth have been bugging me lately too. Next week I have an appointment to get my crown, so I think Iíll arrange for my dentist to set up my consultation with the specialist at time. Iím not looking forward to that. I am very jealous of dh right now. He was one of those lucky ducks who were born without wisdom teeth. He claims that is because he is highly evolved. What ever.

Jojo: Wow you are actually getting flurries?! Hey be careful what you wish for. You may just get dumped on when you just want some accumulation. Thatís how it works you know. If it takes a forklift to lift his toolbox, I guess he should have to worry about anyone steeling it. Unless they stole a forklift first. I highly recommend a nice hot bath Ė sore back or not.

Sally: Hubby normally has dinner ready for you on Fridays? You have him very well trained. I think most people are very thankful they have a job right now. BIL was informed that he was loosing his job at the end of February (they told him just before and Christmas). But luckily he did manage to find a new job after a long search. My other BIL had to take a 10% pay cut. Not good times. I have also ordered some Girl Guide cookies (our Canadian equivalent) but plan to through the box in the freezer right away. Out of sight out of mind. Problem is that when I remember they are there, they are sooo good frozen. The family bike rides sound like fun! Nothing wrong with a 30 minute ride Ė especially with hills! Enjoy the RV show!

Marlana: For womenís hockey, if USA loses it will be to Canada and vice versa. Unfortunately Europe doesnít have a very strong womenís hockey program. Which is too bad. We didnít miss a minute of the game. The only time they played commercials was in between periods. You know us Canadians, we canít miss a second of our hockey. Iíll be out tonight and will miss the US vs Russia game. But dh cancelled his plans so he could watch it. I hate to admit it but we are rooting for Russia. We donít want to have to play US in the finals. The US has a fantastic team this year. I think the paperclip chain will make a great souvenir once it is all gone for good.

Hmmm looks like Iím done already. I hope everyone has a super weekend. Stay health (or in some cases Ė get healthy!).

Hey Everyone.

I'm going to try to write a little while my headache has eased up a bit. Boy have I been feeling bad. I have the typical sinus infection with bronchitis. My coughing finally slowed down today but it sure is deep and hurts when I do cough. Hubby hasn't improved much at all and is running a fever again today. He is still taking medicine so maybe there is going to be some changes soon. If not, he will have to go back to see the doctor on Monday.

Marlana~Thanks for letting everyone know that I am still among the living, although it didn't feel like it the past few days. I can't remember the last time that I spent that much time in bed sick and it isn't over yet. I'm sorry to hear that you have fishy problems again. I am so lucky to have cleaned all my tanks just before I got this nasty bug. I have been dragging myself around to feed them and the rest of the critters. Hubby hasn't wanted anything to eat except a sandwich once in a while. I finally lost my taste today, so I won't be having much to eat either. It helps when you just feel too bad to mess in the kitchen.

JoJo~It sure sounds like you are going to have some major developments between your union and your department. I hope it works out okay for you. I watched the skating last night although I was feeling very bad. I sure wish that Michelle has stayed on her feet for the gold. Tonight is going to be a good exhibition.

Tobey~Thanks for your well wishes. That attachment was really cute. My neighbor told me that he saw a health warning on a local TV station warning of this nasty bug outbreak. It's a little late for the warning. Congratulations to your hockey team. We have been very limited to what is being chosen for us to see of the Olympics. It seems like at least one station would have had complete coverage and let us choose what we wanted to watch.

Jen~WTG on being a tough lady with the car lot. I just caught a smidgen of a report about a local car dealer having to make restitutions on strong arming people into buying cars. They took their old cars and keys and just kept at them until they wore them down and made a sale. Makes a person want to keep what they have on the road for a while longer. Anyhow, enjoy that new car.

Sally~Our weather is so crazy this year, that it's not surprising that everyone is sick. It goes from the low 30's to 80's in 48 hours at least once a week. I've seen some crazy weather here but this is about the strangest in a long time. Have you resolved the problems with the ex or is that still coming up? 30 minutes in the hills on a bike sounds like a very good start to me.

Hello to the ones that I missed. A hot bubble bath is sounding good this evening. It is starting to cool off here so I think I'll go soak for a while. Y'all have a good evening.

Good morning gals. Thought I'd take a quick minute and post. I plan on going out with dear bf tonight, but I'll have to work on my paper this afternoon for awhile. I can't wait until this semester is over. What will I do with all of my free time.

Ok gals. Here is the good news. From being soooo busy this past week, and always on the run, I lost 4 lbs! In ONE week! Wow. Only about 10 more to go, by summer. Now I just have to get exercising regularly again, especially with spring just around the corner!

Skeeter- My bf has had a terrible cold this week too. I just hope that I don't get it. I have a couple white spots on my tonsils, but not a sore throat or fever. Hopefully it'll stay that way. I can't believe that car dealer would do something like that. If they tried something like that with me, I'd kick 'em where it counts!!!

Tobey- I also need to get my butt to the dentist for a crown, and then my wisdom teeth. I'm sure my bf would think the same thing as your husband if he didn't have wisdom teeth. What's with these men? No I haven't been to the doctor yet about my legs. They haven't been to bad this past week. I'm waiting to see if I puff back up.

Marlana- What is going on with your fishies? You are turning into quite the animal nurse! I do like the paperclip idea. Creates a nice visual of your accomplishments.

Sally- I guess I don't realize how the job market is. Nursing is just the opposite, plenty of jobs. I guess I'm very lucky. I've done some research for school, by 2020, nurses will be 20% less than what is required.

Jojo- Yeah, I've read some crap about Ryan lately. Lets see him take a day off without pay. Please don't wish for too much snow. I don't want to have to deal with that, and I'm not too far from you!

I guess that is about it for this morning. Time to go write a paper! My topic is burnout prevention. Go figure!

Hi everyone. Not alot going on here today. We went to the Goodwill today to look for some jeans for dh to wear to work. He wont be able to order uniforms until he has been there for 30 days. He found 3 pairs.

Other than that, I figured out the checkbook, called in our federal taxes (we get a decent refund this year) and a few other piddly things. I'm sitting here fretting over a poor kitty stuck up in the neighbors tree. Its way up there. He tried to throw a ball to knock it out of it since it wasn't that high up there but the cat got scared at went higher. It won't come down because of their dog. I tell you, when it comes to animals, I can really work myself into a worrying fit.

Jen, oh, the guv is bragging about how he worked his day off without pay. Thats good. I was glad to hear it. But see, its illegal for them to try and make us work it without pay, even if they didn't pay us for it then, they'd have to pay us for it later so that option is out. He is so vindictive. He spent way to much money on things this state does not need and is making the state employees pay for it. But he and his cabinet do not feel they should have to give up their raise, just us low level peons. One state official said that the average state employee makes $55,000 a year. HA!!!! I don't even know anyone except maybe the executives that make that much, I don't even make half that. So where they get that amount, I have no idea. Oh, I'll get off my soapbox now. I'm just getting mad again.

Skeeter, be sure you go back to the Dr if you keep running fevers. I know of 3 people who have pneumonia. It started out as bronchitis. Sounds like you are getting lots of rest which is good and what you need.

Tobey, those flurries were coming down pretty good but it was to warm for it to accumulate. I like snow now for some reason. I like looking at a fresh fallen snow, its just so pretty. But I'd rather not go out in it if I don't have to. Congrats to the Canadians for doing so well in the Olympics. By the way, what the heck does sweeping those brooms do in curling? I'd never heard of that game till the Olympics. I hear its a big thing in Canada.

Marlana, we definetly have an ******* of a governor. Oh, I'm not even going to start again. I just get to mad. I can only imagine the word you took out. I've got several of my own for him and they'd never fly in here I bet. I wouldn't want to get kicked off this site. I felt so bad for Michelle the other night. She looked totally devastated. But I hope she realizes that she doesn't need that gold medal to prove anything. She's already a champion.

Sally, hi to you to. I wish my dh could get in overtime. We could really use some. Thats nice that he fixes dinner for you once in awhile.

Well, I've got to get going. Take care everyone.

Hi guys ...starkeeper - hope the cat is down but don't worry if it isn't - he will eventually work himself down - there was a cat near us once that was up a tree in the ravine for 2 days - I tried all sorts of things, eventually called the Humane Society (fire department/police laughed at me) - they said don't worry he will come down when he is ready and he did!

I totally sympathize about your governor - we are in teh same situation with our premier - a totally arrogant man who is so removed from how real people live - he has decimated our health system, our education system and managed to alienate anyone in the Province who isn't rich ... now he is selling our natural resources (which belong to us all) to his corporate buddies .... as you say, don't get me started ...
Dolphin, 4 lbs!!! That's absolutely wonderful!
Skeeter - hope you're feeling better - keep an eye on that throat - there is a lot of strep going around.
Marlana - I hope your fish are doing better - I didn't know you could nurse fish! It must be frustrating though, especially when you don't know the problem with them. Hope they get better - hope you're enjoying Olympics too - frankly, I have watched very little - I have been very cynical about the Olympics for a long time - and the odd time I do catch something there is invariably some nasty thing happening which confirms my decision to "boycott" them - I was thrilled to see our Canadian hockey women win, though, despite, dare I say it, some "interesting" referreeing - good for them! I do love the short track speed skating too - it is like roller derby on ice!

Well, hope everyone has a good day ... I'm at work so better get back to what I should be doing.

Hello. I hope you are having a good weekend.

I was so upset this morning when I got up and saw the cat in the tree. I told dh he had to do something cause I just couldn't stand the thought of that poor thing stuck up there. He had managed to work himself lower but showed no signs of coming down. Dh went over and got up in their tree and the cat tried to come to him but got scared so dh used his long handle limb trimmer and gave the kitty a nudge. He said the cat looked just like the one of the cat hanging in the picture that says "hang in there baby" and gave dh a look that said 'you s.o.b. and fell to the ground and took off like a bat out of heck. So I feel much better and my anxiety level is much lower and dh is my hero.

Moonstone, sounds like your premier is even worse than our governor. Our governor had a scandal behind him when he got elected and I was really surprised that he won. Our governor is only in office thru next year and hopefully we get a better one. The only bad thing is, when our governor goes, the agency director where I work will have to go and everyone loves him. Thats the only thing bad about political appointment jobs.

To everyone else, Skeeter, hope you and your dh are recovering and feeling better, hello to everyone else.

Hey Everyone.

Well I have been out of bed longer today than any other day since last Monday. That must be a good sign. I do feel a lot better and the headache is so much better too. My husband is still coughing bad though. I am glad that he is going back in for a breathing test next week. If he has asthma, he needs to get on some medicine to control it.

Jen~WTG losing 4#. That is really great. You must be doing everything right. There was an article in our local paper Saturday about the severe nursing shortage here. To make matters worse, the agency handling the paperwork for the Board of Nursing moved from one side of the state to the other and had to hire new employees. This caused an unusually long delay in the authorizations for state boards. Now that it has made the papers, solutions will probably be found a lot faster. You have chosen a career field with a lot of possibilities.

JoJo~I'm sure glad that your husband got that kitty down. I get wrapped up in stuff like that too. I am going to try to have a quieter spring this year with no orphans. Maybe there won't be any that need me and I won't be so tied down. That would sure make my husband a very happy man.

Moonstone~Congratulations to your hockey teams. The closing ceremonies are on as I type this. It's too bad that they have had to take the medals from some of the athletes for drug use. It's also ironic that they are from the same country that has been crying "foul" so much.

Hope everyone has had a good weekend. I wanted to post tonight because I might not make it in here tomorrow. We are going to town tomorrow to get a few groceries. Neither of us have been up much and we are moving around kind of slow. It might take all day to get a few things.
