Talking Thursday Chatters for July!

Here we are----
Everyone is invited to come and post here.
We are a great bunch---crazy, but great.
We have all weighed-in on Thursdays at one time or another. And, we follow WW.
Give us a try and you'll stay forever.

Texas has had way too much rain.
I for one am ready for some heat. Did I say that!!??!!

Anyone have another recipe to share?
I have a WW mac n cheese that I'll post.

Tammy, how is the new van?
Susan, when will you work again? How is Pat doing?
Chantal, you haven't written since you had your infection. I hope it's all gone.
Maureen, you are way too quiet.
Dee, let us know when you come home. We miss you.
Brittany, you are silent.
Terry, thanks for keeping us up-to-date on the weigh-in results thread.

Tina

Tina, more heat? Are you nuts???? I am dying here. I really don't do very well in the heat. I do agree that you have had enough rain though. Are you feeling any better?

Recipes involve cooking. Isn't that a profound statement? lol We did chicken, pineapple, and mushrooms on the grill last night. Delicious! I also made some cole slaw, so that was the only "bad" part of the meal.

The van is great! I told the guys I don't want to take it on the trip that Melissa, Carol, and I are taking for a few days because I don't think I can parallel park it. We had a van before, but this one seems so much bigger to me. I haven't told M and C that we have a new van. Just waiting to see if they notice when I pick them up. Carol has driven the past two trips we've gone on lately, and we don't take Melissa's car because it is so hard to get in and out of.

We're supposed to go to a family reunion tomorrow, but I think we are going to pass on it. Bob is working at the Eagles here in town for several hours, and I'm just still worn out from the vacation. I have to be ok to leave on Sunday with Carol and Melissa.

Tammy, Where are y'all going? It's not to that b&b is it? I'm thinking that is only during the holidays.
Sorry about all your heat. One thing about all this rain is that the temps are in the 70's. During the day, I've had the front door open and the a/c off. Of course, I'm using the dryer so the bill probably won't be any lower.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

We are going to Holmes County, Ohio. There are Amish settlements in that area, so we will be hitting lots of shops. We are staying at a B (no breakfast). We have been there a couple times before, but it has been at least 6 years we think. I'm sure we will see many changes. We leave in the morning, and we'll be home sometime on Wednesday.

I have the AC turned off right now, but I'm sure I'll have it on later this morning.

We've had some rain lately, but we could really use more. It has been so dry and hot. Hope your rain stops because I know you've had way too much.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! In case I don't get back on here before I leave in the morning, behave yourselves while I'm gone!!

I found ya'll. Thanks Tina!!!

It has rained so much here. Everything is nice and green but it's too humid!!!

Pat and I had a fun week. We went up to the OKlahoma border (1hour away) to the Indian casino the other day. We had a lot of fun.

I'm going to a sign lanugage workshop all week. YUCK!! I had forgotten about it. Actually I am being bad, I was suppose to go tonight from 5-9.

Tammy, I don't think I could drive that van and park it. Have fun on your trip!!!!!

Tina, I'm going up to the jewelry store next week for a day or so to help clean up. Nothing much....

Happy Monday,
It's not raining! I'm so happy. It didn't rain yesterday, either. Must be something wrong.

Susan, I'm glad you had so much fun. You didn't mention how much money you won. You did play for us too!

Tammy, I hope you are having a fantastic time. I'd love to go to Amish country. A lady at church said they went recently and stayed on a farm. It was meticulously clean and neat. I'd like to go through the shops.

Maureen, how are you?
Chantal, Brittany, Terry, Dee, Sis, everyone-----post!

Howdy,

Well, I have a sign language workshop all week. Today was actually fun!

Tomorrow is Seamus' 3rd birthday. I know that there is going to be the biggest birthday party in Heaven!!!! I'll be sending him balloons along with a note. I'll make one of his favorite meals of french toast. When I was pregnant he would love it. I think we had french toast once or twice a week

Tina, the casino won all the money! Like normal! How are you feeling? All this rain has a bunch has my allergies working overtime.

Tammy, Tina and I would love to go to the Amish country.... maybe we could go there for our trip

Hope everyone is doing well! Please post and give us an update on the happenings.

I am feeling much better, thank you.
I would love to plant some things in the front flower beds. It's just too hot to be out there---any time of the day. It's definitely summer. Somehow I seem to forget every year how hot it's going to be.

Susan, it's so hard to believe that tomorrow will be 3 years.
You are a special, strong lady. Lots of hugs and kisses are coming your way.

It's Wednesday, can you believe it

Susan, how did you do yesterday? I hope it was more of a celebration than a sad time.
Are you frying up there? It is sooo hot here.
We had the car in the shop for a few days. Yesterday, first day back, it ran hot on me. We returned it and the guy put in a new thermostat and didn't charge us. He did it in just under an hour (before closing). So hopefully, that was all the problem. I'm not going very far from home today.

Is everyone drinking plenty of water in this weather??? I hope so.

Hi Tina,

Believe it or not, I had a good day yesterday. I went to my sign language class, and at times I was a little distracted but it was more that I was tired. Lunch time came around and 2 of my friends and I went out to lunch. I treated for a celebration. My family all called. I took out flowers to the cemetery and released 3 balloons.

Then for dinner, I made his favorite meal of french toast. I even has some grapefruit before dinner because he loved it too. He would really move around then.

All in all, the day was good. I emailed the doctor and 2 nurses that I've stayed in contact with and thanked them for all of their care and love.

Thank you for always being there!!!!

Yes, I feel like we are cooking here! I start sweating the second I walk outside because of the humidity.

Susan, Bob and I have gone to southern Indiana to a couple of casinos there. We always have a fun time. I like to watch the people, and I also like the video poker machines. lol I hope your workshop is informative, and more fun than you thought to keep you interested!! I can't believe it has been three years already. Thinking of you!!

Tina, you would have had fun in the shops. One woman said she was going to close her shop for the day and just take off with the three of us because she thought we were having just way too much fun!

I bought several things, and I was very pleased with all of the purchases. I bought a Welcome thing to put at the front door, a tall garden stake with a heart with 2 birds and a small gazing ball on it, a new over the shoulder "healthy back" bag, a smaller purse with a long handle that will fit and match the shoulder bag (Vera Bradley type only less expensive), a cutting board with suction cups on the back, several different types of cheeses that are made there, a couple things of chocolate for Bob and Tim, a couple of t-shirts for me (one says something about being retired), a book about the Amish (I have so many questions about them!!), and I'm sure something else that I can't remember.

I have to be honest with you about something. I really could have lost a friend this weekend. At the inn, we were talking about the vacation that Bob, Tim, and I just took (they asked about it). Melissa started in on how she couldn't understand how we could afford to take so many trips. She and her family never take trips, etc. Then when we would be shopping, she would comment about how expensive everything was, how she would have to mortgage her house to buy anything. I started feeling guilty about the vacations that we've taken, and then I was feeling guilty because I was buying things. At one point I was looking at the smaller purse and actually put it back on the shelf because I didn't want to listen to her. Carol did the same thing with a purse at the same place. We had gone on to another store, and I decided that I WANTED that purse. I told them I'd be back and what I was doing. Carol came with me. I finally admitted to her how upset that I was getting and found out she was feeling the same way. I had to tell her something because I was crying. Now that is ridiculous!

Melissa and her husband both work, and I know he makes great money. They always have new vehicles, and I know they get new furniture in their home every few years. She spends money too but in a different way. The furniture we bought when we moved here was the first living room furniture that we had purchased since l991. We were also still using a living room suite that we bought in 1983. I wanted to bring that stuff up to her but I kept my mouth shut. You would have been proud.

By the way, I do know her daughter bought a REAL Vera Bradley purse that cost $30 more than mine. Wonder if she ever says anything to her?

Sorry I'm sounding bitter here, but I guess I just had to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening!!

Lunch today with the teacher's group. I think it will be a small group because a couple are sick and a couple are on vacations. Even if there are only 2 of us there, we'll have a good time.

Welcome home, Tammy!
I am proud of you for keeping your mouth shut with Melissa. The nerve of some people.
On a happy note--your purchases sound great. I need one of those cutting boards with suction cups. Mine wants to fly across the kitchen.
How did your new van run?

Susan, when does your school start? Ours are finally back to starting in Sept.

Thanks! Bob was very proud of me too, and I know Carol was. She was having trouble keeping her mouth shut also.

I found this website on the label on the cutting board. I haven't checked it out, so I'm not sure what is there. www.architecproducts.com I'm like you with the cutting boards running away. We had one once that curved over the edge of the counter. We loved it. You could put hot pans on it right off the stove. It was great. It broke of course. We found others similar to it, but no hot things can go on it.

The van was great! I really do like it. We had a console put in yesterday between the front two seats. That will come in handy.

Tim goes back Aug. 10 for percussion auditions. I sure hope he makes the band. We already bought season football tickets! I won't want to go if he isn't in the band. If he makes it, we'll take the rest of his stuff over to school that weekend or sometime the next week. He'll just take the basics with him that day. If he doesn't make the band, he'll be home until the end of the next week.

Here is a website you might want to check out. This is where Carol, Melissa, and I spent our time.

www.OhioAmishCountry.com

We stayed at a place called Sojourners Lodge. I don't know if it is somewhere on the site or not.

Tim is doing a ride-along with a policeman in a nearby town tonight. Bob is up at the club, and I'm doing laundry. Late to do laundry, but we all took showers late. I'm planning to run to Wal Mart when the washer is finished, then I'll dry the stuff when I get home.
