Hi all..my morning's off to a slow start, but have acupuncture at 12:30, so at least I will get out of the house. I do have my WL group this afternoon, too..only 3 more meetings then I'm done.

Kathy - great to see you here again Yeah, I survived the three hours, put my bewbs up on my blog and everything, lol! Really, I put on the tank top they gave me that said I survived, made DH take a picture, then I threw it up there. Don't know if it was brave or stupid.

Jules - how's you mom doing?

Sue - glad your mom is home..sorry about the doctor's office..how upsetting. I hope she continues to improve.

Susan- Mom- looks like a real party cat, lol! He takes birthdays seriously.

Cristina - have fun on your walk/bike ride

Mindee - I don't know how you managed, I don't think I could handle two hours in a Walmart.. Can't wait to see the family pics!

Not much else to report. I'm still calling everyone I can think of to volunteer at the event at DS' school...getting nervous that there won't be enough people, but oh well. I will do my best. I did find out that the woman chairing the event is an ESL teacher and she invited me to visit her classroom - Yay! That will be so helpful as I get ready to go back to school. I went to knit night last night and started a new sweater. Ho hum...my life is pretty uneventful right now. I really can't complain, at least there is no drama. Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hello ladies...

First, a message from our Ms Francie...she has something going and is sorry for not being here but to say HI to everyone!

Francie...if you are reading this, take care and don't be a stranger too long. We miss you

Sue...glad to see you posting lady. Sorry that everyone is/was sick...it's been that way here too. Hoping you all feel better soon. Sorry about the docs office too!

Susan...try not to work too hard missy. Love the bd cat, too cute! On Ernie's BD in the past we have given him a plain cupcake every now and then, lol. Never had a party for him...always a first time though! I thought of you while making my salad today...had some leftover chicken and threw it on there, well, after I cut it up...it was soooo good. Tonight I am fixing tacos for the kids so another salad for me with some taco meat. You know, I must say...that fish yesterday was really good! I have been tempted a few times and those things are so bad. You never know when it is going to be good...gotten them before and they tasted like they had set somewhere for days...this one was freshly cooked and was oh so good! Lol...Hoping that satisfied the craving for a while.

Kathy...dd is better, thank you for asking. Nothing special planned today other than the laundry I am doing right now. Did my grocery shopping this morning and took Cambrie on her bike ride. She pooped out too soon again...hoping nothing is wrong with her. She's gone on the 1 1/2 mile walk before and wanted to keep going. The last two times she was pooped before we got home. She walked the rest of the way today and I pulled her bike. I love that C wanted to take a healthy snack...kudos to him! My grandpa used to call my sister punkin...too cute! Not good when that's all they answer to though, lol. But she is quite the cutie pie! Can't believe how big she is already, and Jules' little Dominic...they grow too fast!

Katy...love the shirt and I know I said it already...WTG on the 3 hours-you rock!! Love the rug too...you always do such great stuff and pick great colors as well. Hope your able to get all the volunteers needed

Mindee...had a brain fart for a minute or two, lol. Couldn't remember what you needed a dress for! I was wanting a family portrait done too. I already discussed it with everyone but Josh and his fam...not sure if this is rude, but think she will take it that way...but was thinking with just the adults, no kids. Especially considering Char is preggos and then the baby won't be in it and I don't know when we would do another one. I want it for my BD/Anniversary/MD this year. I don't know...what do you ladies think? Would you be offended? Do you think it's odd, weird...any thoughts? Anyway...we've got time to talk and think about it so...we'll see. May just do me and V and call it good...but I really wanted a group one with the kids grown. Can't wait to see the family pic when you guys get it! Anyway...glad your tongue is getting better.

Jules...thinking of you

Hiya Tammy, Sassy, Asia and anyone I may have missed

Thinking I should have taken a nap with the rugrat. I was fine until I sat in front of the comptuer for a few minutes...getting sleepy now. Getting ready to do round three of my exercise, yay! Then when Cambrie wakes I plan on cleaning out my car...having a little one in the car kills me. I love a clean car and she puts her hands on the window, spills trail mix, lol...but I let her so. I keep a little baggie of trail mix in there for her. Knew I should have gotten a mini-van...may have to get one in a few months with another little one on the way. Anyway...

That's about all I have for now ladies. Hoping everyone enjoys the day!

just popping in before heading off to play the Wii with Tommy for a little bit. That thing gives you such a work out, and I don't even have the Wii fit yet!

I had Tommy figure out what me and Marissa can wear since he already knows what he is wearing. So, he picked out our clothes, and now we are ready to go for the morning. I will get a shower, Tommy will get a shower, and I think I will get the boys in there. Marissa just got a bath because she threw up in her bed.

The lady from the photo place, in where else? Walmart, called to confirm the appointment earlier today. She was then asking questions about how many and all that. Then she asked about me and Tommy getting a picture taken together, so we are going to get one of just the two of us together. (which hasn't been done since we got married...professionally at least)

so it should be fun, and I am hoping to possibly get them all onto a disc, but I think the lady said it would be $100 but if we have enhancements done to the photos then it would be $120, I think.

Sorry I have been MIA. Wednesday was Mom's appt with the cancer specialist. My brother and I went with her and all of us really like the doctor. He is concerned about where the cancer keeps coming from. Apparently it's rare for skin cancer to do what is happenning with her, but not impossible. She went yesterday for a cat scan to rule out lung cancer. She's not a usual candidate for it since she never smoked and after my Dad left she has lived in a smoke free home for 40 years. Tuesday morning she goe to an Ear, Nose & Throat guy to rule out throat cancer which again she is not a usual candidate for. The doctor said that health history wise is she is awesome but her family history is cause for concern. Out of the eight siblings the youngest two are the only ones to not have had a form of cancer. All but the oldest brother were treated and are in remission. I am still having moments of freaking out and wanting to not talk to anyone, so if I am mia, I will be back.

bbl for indys...

Hello Ladies.....

Um, remember me? I guess I should explain what's been going on in my life. I divorced my husband for the second time in November 2007, and moved in with my sister and brother in law. Both of my girls became pretty distant with me because of the divorce, and I went into another very deep depression. When my sister and brother in law decided to move back to Iowa, I also decided to go sooooooo, I now live in Iowa since June 2008, I have the most wonderful, caring, loving and supportive boyfriend, I work fulltime at Walmart in the photo department, but there has been many sad things happen also. Both of my daughters totally disowned me when I left Oregon, my oldest daughter had two baby boys in November 2008, and she won't talk to me or let me have anything to do with the babies, my very first time of being a grandma and I can't even enjoy it. My younger daughter contacted me and said she cannot hold grudges and she needs to have a relationship with me. She is very busy in Nursing school and babysitting the twins 3 days a week. I have become very very depressed with the situation with my oldest daughter, to the point of not wanting to live some days and wanting to be put in a hospital. My girls are planning on coming to Iowa in April for a visit and even though I know I will be able to see my younger daughter, I just keep praying that my older daughter will have a change of heart and let me see her and the boys too. I just want to apologize to my special friends who I left and lost contact with and I hope we can start over, I have missed you all SO much!!!

Good Morning -


Michelle - Welcome back and of course we remember you! Very sorry for all the challenges you have had to face but happy to see you made it back to the site.

Franice -, hope you make it back soon.

Jules -

I will just do a post of hugs....ok, group hug time!

Katy - lol, I was thinking the same thing about WalMart. I could manage an hour but 2 hours - I don't think so.....is this the WL group at Kasier?

Mindee
- Is today picture day? What did you decide to wear? I really need to get a picture w/ all 3 girls, I don't have a professional one. One with you and Tommy will be nice to have! Hope Marissa is feeling ok.

Cristina - Thanks for the message from Francie, I was starting to wonder where she was.
Oh lord to the mini van....I don't think you want one of those! I use to have one and it just gave the girls more room to make a mess in....lol
I really do love fish, maybe if I make it into PDX this weekend the ex will make me some......that w/ wine and kettle chips and I would be in heaven. I think a photo w/ just the adults is fine, not rude at all. When the baby is here you can always get another one but it is something you want for your birthday/Anni and MD (what is that btw?? - lol) ..so, I would explain that to Char and hope she accepts it and if not oh hum.....remember she is pregnant....most things she will find offensive anyway. lol - jk.

argh, time is up, better get to work!

to everyone else!! Now that the Valentine Challenge is almost here do you want to try an Easter Challenge??? I have been eating salads pretty much all year.....oh joy. I think my bext challenge(focus) is not eating after 5pm.

With all the cat talk I just remembered I forgot to give Momo more food in his bowl - - hope he will just tip the open bag over and get food that way. poor guy. .......

oh- 90 day probation and I had my evaluation yesterday.....supervisor gave me *exceed* marks in most everything, she said "you think I would see wings on you the way the staff talks about you"....awww, took me a minute to figure out what that meant,,,,what, I am a bug??? No, an angel! lmbo....

ok, whatEVER......

give you all a break and go now

Hello ladies...

Michelle...oh my gosh lady! So good to see you! But so sorry to hear about all the struggles. I have faith your dd will come around and you will be able to be a family again. Lots of hugs to you! And don't be a stranger anymore. How do you like Iowa?

Susan...silly woman...MD=Mother's Day. And of course you are an angel, but I love the bug idea, lol. Yeah, we went back and forth with the thought and thinking too that no matter what, Char will get mad about something, lol. I told Josh one day that she needed to just pull her big girl panties up and deal with it...during one of her little drama episodes...thinking we are due for another soon...been too quiet for her. I'd be up for some sort of Easter Challenge...probably not scale wise.

Jules...lots of hugs to you missy. Keeping you rmom in my prayers.

Hi to everyone else

Not a lot going on with me today, still in my jammies. Josh called last night to see if I would meet Char's step-dad at a store so he could take Cambrie for the day, fine by me...so I did. I do not like that guy...something about him just, ugh...creepy. Not sure why he needed to get her this morning and couldn't wait until later to pick her up at J & C's...oh well...she was driving me insane last night, lmao. Of course it's too quiet here today, go figure.

Spent quite a few hours on myspace this morning...anyone try the new 2.0 layouts? I keep trying it but not sure I want to put the time and effort in to trying to find a different page, and changing it. I kind of like them but at the same time not...tried two different layouts this morning and the one was soso...the other of the one I have now just didn't do it for me. Maybe if I can find the 'perfect' layout I might like it...supposed to be better.

Anyway...need to go and get some exercise done...should have had some done by now but I am being lazy.

Have a great day, ladies!

well, we managed to make it through Friday without any problems! we got a mondo sized package, but then again with the size of my family alone, we need one that big! we got plenty of good shots, and they will be ready on the 26th I believe. we will also be getting a disk with all them on it as well!

Tommy talked to his mom last night. Apparently his uncle is in the hospital. He keeps going in and out of consciousness and they are pumping him full of sodium for some reason. They are trying to tell the family that if they put him into a coma, that he will come out of it without any problems. Tommy's mom said that it isn't looking good for him.

Then we called my mom to see if she would watch the kids over night tonight (Saturday) since she is always asking us to let them stay the night. We called her and she told us that we were crazy......we were just going to go into the town where Logan was born and get a hotel room. so now, we are staying home for the day and calling it good.....

Jules~ I am sure that every thing will work out for your mom. I will keep your whole family in my thoughts and prayers.

Michelle~ It is good to hear from you! Sorry to hear about every thing that you have been going through.

SuzieQ~ Yup, yesterday was picture day! It started out well, and then went down hill when it was time to get Marissa and Logan done separately! I ended up wearing this floral top that I had and some blue jeans. I wasn't sure of what to wear, so I had Tommy go into my side of the closet and see what would match his shirt.

we got these collages of all the pictures to give to our parents. we got this cute picture of the boys together! I am going to try and see if I can get to them online and then post a link. the computer was down and wasn't letting her order them through the system so she had to ring them up on the register.

Cristina~ I meant to tell you that I think that an idea of just an adult shot of every one is a good idea. we were going to do that for my in-law's but Tommy's oldest brother's wife had an issue with not having the kids in the pictures.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Smoochies for everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!

Mindee - glad the photo shoot went well...looking forward to seeing the pictures.

Michelle - Great to see you back here. Sorry to read that your life was so chaotic there for awhile, but it looks like you are very happy now. Give the kiddos some time...it's a hard transition. I hope you have a very nice visit when they come out and that you get to see your grandchildren.

Cristina
- I quoted you at the dinner table last night. We were talking about a whiny student of DH's and I said " She needs to pull up her big girl panties and deal with it!" I gave you all the credit, lol! Looks like you know how to handle Char...at least she's predictable, right?

Susan - yeah the WL group is Kaiser...almost done. I really am hoping to have 30 lbs off by the time it's finished, but I seem to be stuck...still going to work at it, tho'. There's a nice ring to 30 lbs in 30 months, lol!

Francie - miss you - hope everything's ok

Sassy - How's the move going? bet you are super busy

Jules- hope your mom's tests went well...it's hard but it is good to be thorough.

Sue - hope your mother is continuing to improve.

Hi to Kathy, Asia and Tammy!

It's early, so I may go watch the rest of Heroes on Hulu...have yoga and aerobics later. DH and I are going to a movie this afternoon, still haven't decided on what, but it may be Frost/Nixon...or The Reader. Not very romantic, huh. DH's grandma is getting moved into hospice this weekend. It's a good thing really - it's where she needs to be, though the process has been wearing on DH's dad. I think she's just winding down, kwim? My MIL volunteers for a hospice and she said that entry into hospice usually means there's 6 months to go (or less, depending) so we are making peace with that.

Hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day!

Hiya ladies...

Just a quickie for now...taking a break after my workout. Got in a good hour and feeling good about that. Now to jump in the shower and get ready to head out for Chase's b-game. No V-day plans for today...we never go out on the actual day so we ar going out to dinner Monday. Usually do it the week of but I had that stomach flu/virus...whatever it was so we planned it for this upcoming Monday. Anyway...have a great day/weekend ladies...I'll be back later! Hugs

Good Afternoon -


I am going to do a quickie too!! gabster & I are at the library and she keeps coming and asking for help so I have logged off twice and now am getting ticked off...lol

Oh, we did go to Safeway and picked out a Wall-E a sheet cake for her birthday Monday. Course it will just be the 2 of us eating it but I guess there are worse things. lol If I had planned ahead we would have had a Wall-E for tomorrow when we go to the ex's but whatever...I will just pick up an already made one.

Mindee- Sorry about your mom not being available for babysitting! If I lived close by I would have watched the kids Can't wait to see the pic's, bet they turned out great.

Cristina - It would be kind of gross if you told Josh about Char pulling up her panties and he replies "Geez, mom.....Char doesn't even wear panties"....lmbo...jk. It just came in my mind, see how wack-o my brian works?? lol Thanks for the MD! Couldn't figure that one out You're the angel for helping out w/ cambrie, I wish I had you over here in Oregon!

Katy- Sorry about DH's grandmother but at least it will be some relief for the family to know she is getting excellent care.

Jules- awww, thanks. I am glad someone thinks I am an angel. lol I can get pretty *itchy at times. Who would have thought?? lol Continued prayers for yor mother

Sue- and your's too.....

k- better go. I have to get Gaby her hair cut and make it to basketball at 3pm. Also wanted to go by the grand opening of a health food store because there is wine tasting, can't pass that up....lol, also want to get some almonds too.
Planning to go to PDX tomorrow to see the girls...just as well because today they are scattered w/ their friends.

k- sorry to rush!

Hello ladies...

SUSAN...enjoy your weekend. Ah, it wouldn't have grossed me out...they say things once in a while to try and gross me out but I up them, lmao. I would definitely help ya out if I were closer to ya.

MINDEE...hope you guys have a great day even with the kids.

KATY...sorry to hear about your DH's grandma. to the fam.

JULES...I don't spend much time on facebook either...for some reason I don't get it. Much prefer myspace, of course I don't get that either, lol. But I do know my way around it more than facebook. Hope they figure out what is up with your mom soon.

So I am home and have dinner cooking as I am typing. Threw some pork chops in the crockpot with a can of cream of mushrrom soup. Going to just make some mashed potatoes and green beans and call it good. Did make some brownies for the hubby and kids, man they are smelling good! Hubby is working but hopes to be home at 7 for dinner at least.

Chase's basketball game was H-O-R-R-I-B-L-E!!! They are so bad...the only way they win is if they play a worse team, lol. I quit looking at the score when it was 30-2. The other team had some really big kids...looked a lot older than 9 for sure.

I plan on getting some reading done and doing a load of laundry. Later on will do a little picking up and call it good for the Open House tomorrow, ugh. I hate those...to the point where I don't really care if the house is spotless or not. Online there has been more than 800 hits...we've had 4 or 5 showings since November so whatever. Of course all it takes is one person but where are they?!

Have a great weekend everyone!
