Susi, I'm sorry to hear that Truex got into a wreck. On the other hand, I'm glad to hear that he is still doing so well in the standings. What did Greg think of the "roval"?

How did things go with the oxygenator today?

I did get a walk in at work today, so I was happy about that! Since it's the 1st of October, I know my chances of doing that are dwindling.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie, Truex came in 14th. :( On the last lap, he was 2nd and he and Jimmy Johnson got into each other and that knocked them both back. He maybe could have won or at least come in 2nd if it hadn't been for that. He is still 3rd in the points race though. :)

Our care conference isn't till the 24th.

The oxygenator is charged and this morning I made labels for everything. Just need to put them on. :)

Hugs!

Susi, we had a beautiful day today, too. Jimmy went outside and did leaves. While he did that, I got on the treadmill and watched Friday's General Hospital.

I do feel sorry for Greg in his battle with the squirrels. At least he had a good race day meal to lift his spirits. As always, I'm eager to hear all about it.

When do you have the care conference for your dad?

Enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

The race isn't over yet. Enchiladas were wonderful, nap after eating, wants to nap again. LOL!

We had a beautiful day today. Of course Greg worked outside while I was cleaning. The squirrel war is on again. Not the divot holes they make but they are churning up patches of grass again like they did a few years back. Greg is not happy with them at all. :(

Cyndie, congratulations on staying in your calorie range, I sure won't today.

I definitely agree with you about not taking the oxygenator to the junior varsity. I do know nights and weekends they are a little slack in their duties. Kelly has witnessed it on the weekends. :( She'll bring it up at the care conference. It's the higher ups we have it with. :)

That was nice of Kim to call you while she was with her girlfriend. :)

I did get a sneak peek at the roval the other day on facebook, it sure is going to be an interesting race! Since it's brand new all the drivers will be confused about it for a while I think.

HUGS!

Susi, Jimmy and I were like you and Greg, we went to the grocery store today. We did go out to lunch. I stayed within my calorie range, so that was good.

No offense to anyone, but I understand your point. That is an expensive and intricate piece of equipment you bought for your dad. You don't want to take it to the "junior varsity".

Kim went out of town to see one of her girlfriends. While she was driving, she called me to talk, so I went outside and got in a few steps.

As always, the race day menu sounds good. Enjoy that roval! Go, Truex!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie, it was 10 till 5 before the UPS guy got here last night. All is well now though. I'm going to get it charged and take it out Monday. I told Greg I wasn't comfortable taking it on a weekend when the aides don't pay quite as much attention. Not that they don't do their job, just do it slower. :(

I'm so glad you got to walk to the bank yesterday! :) Greg and I will have our hot grocery date today. LOL!

It's already starting to feel like Fall, it's 55 out this morning and only supposed to get to 67 today.

Happy anniversary Linda and Dan!

Missy, as Susi said, I hope LMFP was good today. Speaking of good, I like hearing about your progress! Enjoy the fair. Stay strong! And speaking of strength, I like the Papa Bear story!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that you had to wait all day for your dad's tank. I agree with you, I don't like signing up for things on-line. There are lots of discounts I miss out on because of that.

Happy anniversary to Linda and Dan!

I did get to walk to the bank today, so I was happy about that. No big plans here, other than the hot grocery date. LOL

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Well, here it is almost 4:45 and UPS still hadn't been here. GRR! Any other time seems like he's up and down the street 4 or 5 times in the early afternoon. *sigh*

It didn't get really warm but it's comfortable and we finally have had sunshine all day. :)

I hope LMFP stayed in a happy mood today for you. Thank you for the reminder of the anniversary. :)

I know the fair will be hard to get through food wise, just do what you can. :) I wouldn't limit me if I go. LOL!

Hehe! I'm glad Papabear felt the burn. Some of out exercises do look a little funny but they are oh so effective. :) I won't throw any extras at you this time. Hehe! Good job on staying away from the ice cream, and glad you had a good snack!

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Friday!!!

Dreary... yes, that is our weather right now Auntie Cyndie. Hoping it clears because Little Cub has a game at 4pm. At least it's not raining! Praying it's a "Walk to the bank" kind of day for you!!!

Susi... I hate that too! If you bought something and have it coming to your house, you should have an easy look to check the tracking! I also don't like to sign up for too much, so wouldn't either. My guess is with all these people who steal packages these days, maybe it's a protection, so in that case it's good I guess. Good luck!!

That would be great to still get the three pics of Greg and his birds. You could put it in a three photo frame... maybe with him in the middle. Oh, I could have so much fun with that, hee hee. Hope he enjoys time with his "friends" today!

So far it's a good day with LMFP. She really can be a happy baby most times. I was worried with no one here, but she does like the one on one attention, so it should be a good day!

You doing anything fun today Susi? I know waiting for the tank, but it is your day off too, so?!!?

Hope you have a good weekend Auntie Cyndie. How about you? Any big plans?

Saturday will be my parent's 45th wedding anniversary! So make sure you send my Mommy some love, hee hee. Her BFF is there visiting them, came in yesterday, so I know she'll have a great day!

Our weekend plans... going to the fair Saturday, if the weather is nice. Sunday doing "date night" like Auntie Cyndie does... food shopping (haa haa) and cleaning the house. I'm sure Papabear will through a "surprise" (but not really a fun kind) in my weekend, so no need to plan stuff, hee hee. Hope you all have a good weekend!

Mamabear's Journey...
Well, as you know, we went for a short 20 minute walk last night. Hoping to get more in this weekend! If we go to the fair, it will be a lot of walking, and I want to be good with the food, so we'll see how it goes... I can do this?!!??

Last night I showed Papabear my arm exercises I do. He was making fun of me till he did them. It's really easy, but you feel the burn... he felt the burn, haa haa.

Today I'll continue working on my planking, and will do my usually exercises. If Susi throws more at me, I'll try to do those too! (wink).

Again, this weekend will focus on MOVING and watching what I eat!!! Oh, last night, I snacked on my celery and chocolate hommus! I still have that ice cream in the freezer. I'm trying to enjoy it once a week! I di it last Sunday night, I think it was, and been good all week! I know I had brownies, but I did stay away from the ice cream, so I'm happy!

Again, have a good weekend ladies!!!

Missy, great on getting the walk even if it was a little short.

I hope UPS gets here early too. I hate waiting around for something to happen. :( I can't find out a time unless I actually register with UPS and I don't want another password or junk emails to deal with.

I do hope LMFP is in a good mood today. Maybe since she will be the only one there and get all the attention she will be. :) It's a shame they couldn't have kept her home too. I sure hope things go well with B when D is there.

I love that OC called and talked to you for so long! :) That made for a good day even if it wasn't with the kiddos. :)

I would probably have to take 2 or 3 separate pictures to get Ralph, Alice and Greg. LOL! It would would make for a wonderful surprise for Greg though if I could get them all. :)

Cyndie, I'll let you know tonight. :)

It sure would be nice if Mother Nature would get over her PMS! LOL! I hope you can get that walk to the bank in today.

Any weekend plans besides your date for the grocery?

HUGS!

Susi, I love the names of Greg's birds! Speaking of Greg, It's good that you were able visit your dad. What time did your dad's oxygen tank come?

Missy, I'm glad that you listened to your Mama Bear instincts and called Older Cub. I hope that all goes well with the kiddoes tomorrow!

It was cold and dreary here today, so I didn't get to go out for a walk today. Our high tomorrow is supposed to be 64 degrees. We'll see if I walk to the bank.

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Susi, after dinner Papabear and I went for a walk! Like always, we had to cut it short because he had to go potty (gggrrr), but we got a brisk 20 minute walk in, so that is great!!!

Sorry your visit with your dad wasn't better, but glad it wasn't awful! Here's to a better week next week! Hope your tank comes in early, so you are not waiting all day for it and can enjoy your day off!

Speaking of days off, I almost got one tomorrow. B doesn't come Mondays or Fridays so he will not be here. A's grandmother is taking him for the day tomorrow because Mom, Dad, & new baby are coming home from the hospital. So that just leaves LMFP. She's been doing better, so hoping for a fun day with her. Maybe a morning and afternoon nappy, hee hee... just joking!

I found out that the new baby (2 months old) will be starting next week. So this should be interesting. LMFP is better, but B is a pain in the butt at times... like today!!! Hoping all goes well. The baby is "D", just so you all know... hee hee

Older Cub called me today. It was great talking to him! We talked for over an hour. Hope I can just go to sleep tonight now, haa haa.

Ralph and Alice... sweet! Now you just have to get a picture of them... maybe one of Greg and them! Then for Christmas, frame it for him as a gift.

Hope you are having a good night ladies. Time to post my dinner... TTFN!

Yep, his name is Ralph, his wife is Alice. :) Dad wasn't too bad today, but he had a couple of moments.

RIght now your hormones are whacky. I do understand and remember the chocolate cravings, so hang in there! :) You know each new day is a fresh start. :)

I'm glad you texted OC, I remember several times I called my mom at weird times cause I had a feeling and she was just depressed and felt better when she talked to me. We need to go on those whims. :)

Morning ladies...

Auntie Cyndie... I'm so happy the ladies are back. How is the lady who lost her dad? I'm even happier you got that walk in yesterday!!! That's great!!! I hope you have another one today! I'm sure that walk was SO enjoyable after your week alone!! Have a good day... Happy Thursday!

Susi... Okay, so Greg won't be doing any fostering... oh well. I think it would of been good for him (haa haa). Guess he's just a "Ralph" guy! (wink) Ralph was the bird's name, right?!?

Hoping it is a good day with your dad today Susi! Fingers and toes crossed!!! Hoping and praying!!! Maybe because you aren't coming Friday till Monday, he's be good?!!? Not sure if he understands that, but, I'll hope!!! Good luck!

I thought planking was only on your elbows, till the other night. Papabear was watching a movie, and the girl did one and was on her hands. When I do them, I go on my elbows/arms.

Okay, 10 (plus) wall push ups... I got this!!! Thanks Coach Susi!!! (hugs)

Mamabear's Journey post # 5...
Okay, I promised myself I would be honest here with these posts, so here we go.
After dinner I did have two more brownies. They are now gone, so that is VERY good! They were good and I hope that got it out of my system. But we are heading to the fair this weekend, and I'm usually pretty good. My things I like having are to leave with a caramel apple, I have a smoothie there (made by these hippy looking ladies, but they make them right in front of you and they are so yummy!), and some French fries or a soup! I say that is better then Papabear who has pretty much everything, hee hee. Last time I went, I had just the smoothie and left with my caramel apple, so you never know...

So other than my brownie badness, I had some popcorn... was good and healthy (no butter, little salt)... but ended my evening with a chocolate bar. (Sad face hanging down low in shame). I know I was sad/depressed. Not sure why, but I was. I knew it and should know better to stay away from the food! Bad Mamabear!!!

I had this feeling and my heart was hurting for Older Cub. I don't know why, but found myself crying as I tried to fall asleep thinking of him. Finally, I picked up my phone and texted him. I kind of figured he'd be up. It was nice to get that text back saying "Thank-you Moma, I needed that!" In a weird way that made me feel better! I asked if all was alright, of course, and he said it was just a hard day, but all was good.

So, kind of a bumming night. Maybe my TOM, maybe the show I watched, or that I had a good evening with Little Cub (made me miss my older cub). Whatever it was, it was weird and hard to fall asleep, but I did, and today... I think I'm better. I still have my headache (that never went away). But those bad headaches are from my TOM, and usually at the end of it, so here's hoping!

Today, I'm gonna do something for ME!!! That will be my exercises, Susi's wall push-ups and planking again! I can do this! Thanks for the support ladies!

Time to post the QOTD. Hope you all have a good Thursday! I'll be back later!

Missy, those things aren't hard to do. And you can modify the plank till you can do it by planking on your elbows instead of your hands. :) Since I have trouble with pain in my right shoulder occasionally that's the only way I can do it now. :(

I'm glad Tom isn't quite as annoying as he use to be. I do hope you got rid of that headache. I sure don't blame you for not wanting the kids to be alone. I really don't think LC would do anything though, but it's better safe than sorry. :) I would do the same thing.

Oh, 10 wall push ups for that extra brownie. :)

Cyndie, it would be hysterical for Greg to foster squirrels! LOL! I can just see him feeding the babies those little bottles. ROFL!

I'm so glad the co-workers are back now! I'm glad you were able to get out for that walking break, you really deserved a double one, but I'm sure that's not doable according to the bosses. *sigh* I hope you can get another one today!

Feel free to do the little exercises with us. :)

We'll visit with dad today since we won't be going tomorrow. I just hope he didn't have a double mocha grumpy for breakfast again.

Susi, you are one inspiring personal trainer! I might have to get on board! I have to admit, I like the idea of Greg fostering squirrels. In the immortal words of Missy, Tee hee!

Missy, congrats to the new mom! And more congrats to Younger Cub on his soccer victory! But then there's Papa Bear, baking those brownies. HMM! Portion control!

My co-workers came back today, yeah! I was so excited, that I went for a walking break!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Gee your tough Susi!! emoticon Now I'm afraid to tell you a caved in and had two brownies this afternoon. emoticon emoticon They were good?!!! I should also say, I cut them really small, so two was really one according to SP?!!?!! Does that make it better? Probably not, but...

I did add on some other exercises already, but I'll do that panking you suggested (or demanded, hee hee). I wanted to try and do those. My three guys do them and I try, but am awful at them!!! Thank you coach!!!
emoticon

Like you, the wind picked up and it looked like it could rain, but didn't! Hope it stays that way. He has practice at 7 to 8:30pm tonight. Hoping and praying for them all...

As for my TOM, I'll take it, it's so much better!!! Just have to get rid of this headache right now... but I'm better. I wanted to get out to the store after the children left today, but LC took his girlfriend home, so I guess not. I rather them here, so I can keep an eye on them. Some day I'll miss these days, right?!!? hee hee

Hope your days are going well ladies! Auntie Cyndie, hope you got some help today!!!

Missy, I hope it doesn't rain on practice tonight. We were supposed to get some, got wind and clouds all day but no rain, at least not yet.

LOL! Yea, I could just see Greg being a foster pop to squirrels. HEHE! Birds..YES!

I sure hope that mom gets better with getting the baby and going. They can't live that awful far from you that his bottle can't be finished at home or prop it up with a blankey on the way. These young moms. LOL!

Congratulations to YC and the team for winning. :) Oh, I would say any of them were lucky to score in hard rain like that. It's beyond me why they make them play in it, but I guess football does too.

Funny how Papabear chose to make brownies to warm up the house instead of crawling under a blanket. You can work those corners off! 20 crunches coming at you, and the thing from the butt busters, on all 4's alternate lifting opposite arms and legs together 10 each side and a 1 minute plank! Move it, move it, move it!! Hehe!

Boo on Tom still hanging around. :(

Good morning ladies!

Susi... Glad your dad is always okay with you missing days. That must help. It is amazing how small things can be now. That's great the tank is that small and not heavy. Hoping all works out great!!

Be safe in your storms. It's cloudy right now, and rained early this morning. They are saying it's going to get muggy and hot today and chance of thunder storms and more rain tonight... of course when Little cub has his practice. Stay safe!

Oh, this morning on the news they were saying with all these squirrels being killed, that leaves the babies orphans. I was thinking Maybe Greg could help and "foster" these poor little squirrel babies, hee hee. What do you think?!!? hee hee

Auntie Cyndie... I do hope they both do come back today! Though it does seem soon for the one who lost her Dad. Hope she is doing okay. Maybe like before, she needs that distraction.

Smart thinking on the meds to help prevent the colds coming! What do they say... up your vitamin C to help with that?!? Good luck! Hope you stay healthy! If you are taking any days off, we want them to be for good, fun times!

Good luck today at work!!! HUGS

The mother picked up closer to 4:30pm. I was SO ready for her to take him and go! She's one of those parents that wants to talk about EVERY LITTLE THING their child did that day. She seems like a nice lady, and maybe it'll get better. But for right now, I want him gone when she comes to pick him up! He was having a bottle when she showed up, so she wanted to finish feeding him...aaahhh.

Little Cub's game ended with a win 4 to 1. I thought it was 5, but Papabear said 4. Anywho, it POURED and POURED and POURED the whole game!!! It was that hard rain too. They said it would be the worst rain during that time, so we knew. Little cub only played for 10 minutes. GGGRRRR At least when he was out there the coach wasn't screaming at him. Being honest, it wasn't his best playing, of course he was in the pouring rain, so I won't judge!

Mamabear's Journey Post 4...
Ate well, did my exercises... didn't go to the gym, but wasn't in the plans anyways for yesterday due to Little Cub's game... Then 9pm comes around and I go into the kitchen and guess what Papabear was making... (head hanging down low)... BROWNIES! If you remember, I have been craving these since SUMMERTIME! Why did he ever decide to make them now, I do not know. Well, actually I do. I asked and he said he was cold, so wanted to bake something to warm up the house. Yeah, it worked, but not good for me!!!

I did have my four corners I like. I did it all in one night, so I will be good. But there are leftovers and they are sitting in that kitchen calling my name... aaagghhh... I can do this!!! Chocolate Hommus with my celery... I can do this!!!

Today I'll try to get to the gym again. It's easy to not go when Papabear is not up to it. If it doesn't rain to much later, I'd love to do a walk tonight, but again, will depend on the weather. They are saying it'll be muggy and up to 80 degrees out today! I will do my exercises (here at the house) today... hopefully right after this post! I'll continue to make GOOD choices with my food and stay far away from those brownies (haa haa)!

My period is still going (week 2) and picked up, but still better than it used to be (way better). My headaches and cramps are constant, but I will push through it. I got this!
Thank-you ladies for caring and reading! HUGS

Have a good day! I'll be back later!

Missy, I hope baby B was picked up soon after you posted. We're going to wait to visit dad tomorrow since we're taking Friday off so I can be here to sign for the package. I told him and he was okay with it.

I'm glad the rain wasn't causing any problems. We're supposed to get storms today again. I hope we get some sunshine soon, I'm tired of it being so dreary out.

I'm glad things went well with the birth. :) If she keeps having babies, it will keep you in business for a while. Hehe!

It never fails when you offer help in some way someone wants to take advantage of it. They least they could do was come pick the tents up.

Cyndie, yes, the machine is expensive. For something so little to cost almost 2k is ridiculous but it's a good one and many users endorse it. It only weighs 4 lbs. and looks like the size of a med/lg purse. I guess smaller things have more little stuff in them to make them work well.

I sure hope you don't get a cold from the stylist. You'd think people would learn to stay home when they are contagious with something.

I sure hope everyone was back to work today. I can't imagine having to work in an insurance office alone like that. :(

HUGS!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that your dad was "iffy" today. On a more positive note, that's good news that the tank comes on Friday. That's too expensive to leave for the "porch pirates"!

Missy, that's unfortunate that Papa Bear is ill. I went to get my hair dyed tonight. The stylist had a cold. I think I'll take some medicine before I go to bed!

I had to work by myself again today. Everyone's supposed to be back tomorrow. I hope so!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Hello Susi...
I'm making this short, so I can do my exercises. It was a day with the baby B. He is still here... gggrrrr... hoping she comes soon (she had a meeting).

Happy your dad's tank is coming this week! Hope it really helps him and makes things easier for all!!! Sorry he was in a mood today. Are you going tomorrow since you won't be this Friday?!?

It's been raining all day here, but all looks good around here. I do know if the basement starts, it'll be later tonight or tomorrow.

She did have her baby this morning. All went well. She is taking the rest of the school year off with him, so I won't see him till next school year. But his brother was good, so hopefully... fingers crossed! A (the big brother) will still come, but twice a week after November/December. Depends on how the baby and her do I guess.

YES, my BFF is the Lysol can these days!!! Hee hee
I checked in with Papabear and he's like... "I'm okay" in that I'm dying voice. aaaahhhh, men! I'll take care of him, but he just has a runny nose and sore throat, we all go through this, hee hee. I do hope he's better soon!

They asked if any parents have tents to put out for the players on the bench for today's game. We have two, so I offered them. Now they want them there for the JV game. I said I was working, so they asked if LC can drop them off. No. I'm like, you want them, come get them... no one came. LC will drop them off at 4:30pm'ish when he can. You offer to help and they make you wonder "WHY did I"... ggggrrr

Okay, my exercises... I'll be back later! HUGS

Missy, I hope you don't get the bad rain, but I hope more that YC gets to play more at the game.

Dad was iffy today. *sigh* I got word today that the Inogen will be here on Friday. I have to sign for it so we probably won't be going to visit dad that day. I don't know what time it will get here then I have to call Jason and he'll explain it all to me.

Oh no on Papabear no feeling well. Carry that can of Lysol around with you. :) I can't wait to hear about YC's movie. :)

You will soon have another FP on your hands. I hope all went well for the mom this morning.

Wouldn't you know Papabear would want to snuggle when he's sick? :) Just like mommies little man. :) Good choice on dinner! :)

YOU CAN DO THIS!!!! :)

Morning ladies! Happy Tuesday.

Auntie Cyndie... I agree, doing three people's work WOULD be tiring!! I hope the receptionist is in today!!! Like Susi said, I hope you got that well needed rest!!! Hoping today is better!!!

Susi... That makes sense, we are getting that rain today!!! They are saying chances of flooding and torrential downpours. Of course, Little Cub has his soccer game tonight. Gotta love sitting in the rain watching a game... and he hardly plays... gggrrrr. I don't mind watching in the rain if he plays. Here's hoping!

As for you today, hope your visit with your dad goes well. I'm hoping for him to be in a good mood!!! How long will it be before you get the tank?

Papabear came home last night with a sore throat and runny nose. I stayed FAR away from him!!! I so don't want that, and since I have my period, I seem to be more apt to get it. I think it's the post nasal drip causing the sore throat. He took his Nyquil last night and snored like crazy, but that was good for him... not for me. Hoping he's better soon!

Little cub wasn't home all night. For a class he's making a film. So the four of them were running around town taping their "scenes". He came home all excited and seemed happy with what they did. Should be interesting to see it when it's all done. He doesn't want to tell me about it, but they had to pick a topic in the news. They picked "vaping".

A's little brother is being born this morning! The Aunt dropped him off and will pick him up. Like I was talking with LMFP's mom, A has no clue what is coming, hee hee. Praying all goes well.

Mamabear's Journey post 3...
So never made it to the gym last night. With a sick Papabear, he asked if we could just stay home and he wanted to snuggle and watch a movie. I said NO snuggling, but okayed the movie, hee hee. I will remember this when he wants to go and I don't! (wink)

But, I ate well all day and did my little exercises, so I'm okay with that. Here's to a new day! Dinner tonight is chicken breast in the crockpot, broccoli, and Papabear wanted mashed potatoes with gravy. I'll take more broccoli and less potatoes and gravy. I love them, but know they are not good.

Today I'll do my exercises and add another exercise to my list... just need to think of one, hummmm....

Hope you all have a good day! I'll be back later.
HUGS

Missy, I was so excited yesterday about getting the okay for the oxygenator that I forgot to mention it was pouring rain all day so we didn't visit with dad. We'll go today. I messaged Susie at the home and told her about the oxygenator and that we weren't coming, she said she'd let dad know. :)

Since this is an out of town bank loan, I needed to know that ahead of time about the early payoff. Some banks will do that because they could lose money on the deal, especially with the interest. I always ask first. :)

I do love a good snack of veggies! :) Just a LITTLE ice cream I believe is okay. No more than a cup though. :) Those granola bars are great! :)

Cyndie, with 2 people out no wonder you were tired. :( I do hope the one is back today. Hopefully you got some rest last night. I don't think I would be exercising after a day like that.

HUGS!

Susi, I'm glad to hear that all worked out with the tank! You're doing great on your exercise. Like Missy said, how was your dad today?

Missy, I'm so happy for you that you were able to get the last dresser. Did Papa Bear admit that you should have reserved one?

As for work, the other agent is expected back Wednesday. The receptionist was out, too, as her hubby had previously scheduled cataract surgery. I'm tired!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Hello Susi! That's awesome about the tank! So glad it all worked out!!! I didn't know there was a fee for somethings if you pay it off earlier?!!? Hummm... Something to watch. If we can pay something off, we do. We did with LC's braces, cars in the past...

Awesome job on the moving today!!! I read that article on SP (How to Build 30 Super Healthy Habits in Just 30 Days)... or I should say skimmed through it. Lots I knew, but it's nice to have that reminder again... like getting up and moving!! Thanks Susi!! Good job!

Trying my other trick to help me with wanting food, If I'm hungry, but shouldn't really be, I drink a big glass of water!!! I just had one instead of going for "something". I only got that ice cream for my treat, but everything else, to snack on, is good for me. I didn't get any bad snacks! (well the ice cream, but you know what I mean)

I did get those Sunbelt Granola Bars. I always stay away from them, but they sounded so good, so got those. Just logged them into SP, and (I think) they are okay for me... sounds better then a chocolate bar, M&M's, chips! I got the "Carrot Cake" one (130) and the "Apple Spice" (110). I was very surprised on how much I enjoyed them! Nice for a snack at night instead of ice cream or chips... right?!!?

Off to cut up veggies for our taco salad dinner tonight. Hope you all had a good day!

Oh, Susi, how was your Dad today?!?

Missy, it all worked out! :) Inogen called this morning and they got the okay from Dr. Sielski and sent me papers to sign electronically. It should be here either Wed or Thursday. :) Another bill for us now, but the payments are low and there is no penalty for early payoff. :)

Okay on the wall pushups. :) Today I just did my walking and marching to get my steps in. Just do a little something extra each day and you're going to do great!

Congratulations to YC and his team for the wins! I'm with you though, yelling at someone isn't something a coach should do like that. But too, like you said, he sees more potential in him and is pushing him to bring it out. So I guess it's a good and bad thing all at the sametime?

Men and their toys. LOL! I'm glad Papabear likes his trucks new looks. Keep lotion on that burn so it won't peel. :)

Wow on getting the last dresser! I never take things like that for granted if they say there are plenty of them. My experience is that plenty goes faster than a few when you really want the item.

Boo on the pizza and even worse about the salad. :( That's one thing I can't stand is finding hair in my food. Ewww. Great job on the small dish of ice cream. If you deprive yourself you know what happens. :)

You are well on your way to a healthier lifestyle! :) You can do this!

HUGS!

Morning ladies!!! Happy Monday?!!??
I can't believe yesterday marked 7 years since our last AMC episode! Seems like it wasn't that long. Miss our show!!!

Susi... praying the tank works out with this doctor! I kind of understand the other doctor wanting to see him first, but I totally understand you too! Praying all works out!

I'm just reading all the post now, so I'll do those wall push-ups today, okay?!! Promise Coach (wink)!! Good job on all your exercising this weekend!!!

Sorry to read Truex dropped down in the points, but he can get back up there! He can do it!!! As for your salad, it sounded yummy! Glad you enjoyed it!!!

Hee hee... as the baby and diaper changes, he does scream like crazy when "getting" changed! I don't know why. He can be fine before sitting in his poop, but lay him down to change him, and he cries!!! The mother is the only one he doesn't cry for. He does for me, the grandmother, and father! Sorry for the confusion.

Praying still for Mark! Hoping it worked and he is good to go! Going out with your niece sounds lovely! I'm sure she could use the break.get a way!! I feel for her. Hope I never have to go through that! HUGS to them all!!!

Auntie Cyndie... sounds like you had a nice visit with you old co-worker! Sorry to hear about her shoulder. Hoping she heals quickly! Ouch! I'm sure she was happy to see you!

Are you enjoying GH right now?!? I saw something last week that I said I had to mention (or ask) to you and I forgot... ggrrrr... Like how Julian put Ava in her place... it gets me mad how mad she is at her daughter, when she slept with Morgan over and over again! Wrong wrong wrong!

Then this twin brother to Kevin. I don't know the story line behind it all, so it's a little hard for me, but looks like it's gonna shake everything up! It's not my AMC, but I'm happy one ABC soap is still on!!! Enjoy the show!!! Good girl exercising while watching it!!!

Hope you have a good start to your week!!! Oh, did Kim come to visit this past weekend? Hope so!!

It was a busy, but good weekend for the bear family! Friday and Saturday Little Cub had games. They won both and each game he got to play some. So that was good. The game on Saturday though, the coach really yelled at him. Even the other plays said it was un called for... people in the stands too. I THINK he's harder on him to try and get him pushing harder, but I don't think that is the right way. Being nice and TEACHING can get you much further then yelling!!! Anywho, I was happy he played.

Saturday Papabear changed his breaks on his car and painted some pieces like she did on Older Cubs car a little while ago. He was very happy! He's cute. I worked on cleaning the house and the budget Saturday. It was a beautiful day. Little cub's game was at noon, and I got a sunburn on my face and chest!! I forgot my sun screen! oh well, looking better today, hee hee.

Sunday was church and then we headed to Ikea, Papabear & I, to get the dresser for Little Cub's room. I kept telling Papabear to call and ask if they will put one a side for us. He said he called Saturday and their were 8, and Sunday showed 8 would be there, and Monday will be 9. Okay, I said...

After church, we got there a little after an hour ride, and went straight to the stop where the boxes were. There were two ladies taking one, as we got there. I stood RIGHT there to make sure we got one. It was the LAST one!!! The LAST ONE!!! I can't believe how popular this dresser is. We just went by size and we liked it. If we were a minute later... eeeekkk... there was someone else looking for one after us! We just made it. I thanked God the whole ride home!!! Papabear thought I was crazy that I was so afraid, he kept saying there will be lots there. Anywho, It's built and in Little Cub's room. Reeses is in his new/smaller cage and it looks so much better than that huge thing Papabear built years ago when Twixie came home! He did a great job building it, but this is nicer! hee hee

Okay, Mamabear's Journey, post 2...
It was a weekend I did not plan, but I guess a good start to teach myself to be better?!!? Friday Papabear made plans to get together with our friends... the guys like to go and build puzzles as us ladies talk! The part that got to me, they picked pizza. Not only from the place I do not like, but pizza! gggrrr...

They like to have salad with it, so she got that, and we picked up the pizzas. The problem with that, she got a Caesar salad... love them, but not the healthiest. Then they ordered the pizzas for us, since we were at LC's game. The guys got meat lovers and I asked for peppers and onions, and she likes Mediterranean (we did 1/2 and 1/2), but she got my side peppers, onions, and pepperoni (sad face). Again, don't mind, but not healthy. I ended up having one piece and salad... till I found a hair in my salad (she gets the bag kits), so I was done and had another slice.

So NOT a good start to my day 1 of my challenge for me. BUT I would not let that get me down. I did have a cookie at the end of the night. Saturday since we were so busy, I had soup... okay choice... better then going out to eat! Sunday wasn't the best. We didn't have breakfast because we went from church, to Ikea. On the way home Papabear wanted to stop at the Outlets, and there asked for their chinese food there. We get a plate of 3 sides and split it. I get the veggies and chicken or beef and I have some of the rice.

Since we ate so late, we didn't really have dinner. I had a granola bar, and then later, had a SMALL dish, I promise, of ice cream! Again, not good at all for this weekend and my start, but we went food shopping and our meals are pretty good this week?!?!?

Two boneless chicken dinners with a veggie, Pasta night (I'll watch portion control), taco salad night tonight (I just make a salad and add the taco seasoned ground turkey meat to it). Papabear does the salad, and adds chips, but I don't.

My lunches this week, My neighbor had an abundance of peppers, so I did a lazy man's veggie stuff peppers! I say lazy, because I just make the filling and cut the pepper pieces into it. The filling is with quinoa, not rice, and I have peppers, onions, and zucchini in it with my Classico pasta sauce. It is good, and I think healthier?!!?

So for today, I'm PLANNING on going to the gym! Tomorrow, in the pouring ran, little cub will have a game, so going to the gym tonight is best. I'll start doing my arm exercises again during the day, and Susi's wall push ups (which is also in my arm exercises, but I'll do them separately too ~ wink). Continue to eat better and no snacking, but healthy foods! I got my hommus, celery, apples, and thanks to my neighbor, pepper strips I already cut up to snack on! This will be a good week! Thank-you ladies for your support!!! HUGS!

Have a good day ladies!!! HUGS

Cyndie, that is sure a long time for your friend to be in PT. :( I hope it's over for her soon.

You're welcome for the update. I do love me a big supper salad! I fill the entire dinner plates with salad stuff, crackers on the side and now and then if I have some chip chopped honey ham I will put a bit of that on too. It's Mm Mm good! :)

Susi, good job on getting your bike done. As for me, I did get my treadmill done today while I watched General Hospital.

Like you, I feel sorry for my friend. She said she is still going to physical therapy. I hope it all turns out well for her!

As always, the race day supper sounds yummy!

Thanks for the update on Truex!

Hugs!

Cyndie, I did get my bike done yesterday. Today it's cleaning and that's exercise enough. I start and don't stop till I'm finished, so it counts good for exercise. :)

Oh my on the broken shoulder! I can't imagine how much that hurt. :( I do hope it doesn't give her any trouble now.

It was a salad supper for the race menu. Hehe! Of course I made chocolate pudding for dessert. My bad.

Truex came in first on the first "stage", but came in 5th in the race. There was a mess up in the pits and he got a stop and go penalty, so that put him behind. :( That moved him down to 3rd in the playoffs. :(

HUGS!

Susi, you don't give yourself enough credit. Did you get your exercise in today?

You're right, you should get in touch with your niece. The older I get, the more I see the importance of that.

My ex-co-worker is 77. She fell Mother's Day weekend and broke her shoulder. She spent time in the hospital and then a rehab facility

As always, I'm eager to hear what the race day menu is. Go, Truex!

Hugs!

LOL Cyndie, I sure can't see me as a personal trainer. :)

I know you will enjoy lunch with your ex-co-worker today. :) Which reminds me, I really should get with my niece soon and get her out to lunch, she's probably ready for a little break.

Mark has finished his chemo and radiation! :) Of course we won't know if it worked for about 6 weeks, but please continue the prayers for them. After that, he will prepare for the surgery and the feeding tube till it heals.

The race is in Richmond tonight at 7:30. That's too late for me to eat supper so I think it will be just whatever I fix this time, it WON'T be pizza. LOL!

Missy, I am so excited about your journey! The plans that you and Papa Bear are making sound great! Congrats to YC on being asked to put his self-portrait in the fair. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Susi, I like you exercise suggestions. You're our chaplain and personal trainer! I guess it's human nature to be impatient, no matter what. I hope that everything works out with the oxygen tank!

Thank you for watching the weather and thinking of me! If that rain comes your way, I hope you don't have to drive in it. You're right, it was scary! I'm having lunch with an ex-co-worker tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, we're waiting till Monday. I got a call from Dr. Bruce's office the morning. He can only okay the portable oxygenator if he sees dad, cause he hasn't for a while, so I have another one into Dr. Sielski. Pray that one works, it's the last resort. :( I really didn't want to drag dad out to an appointment. :(

I guess we're supposed to get that rain tonight too with high winds. :(

I know I'm not a mom, but...sometimes I really get a good chuckle out of the way they think and do things with their new babies. Hehe!

I know you change them, you said, I think, the baby gets fussy WHEN she gets her diaper changed. I just thought that was unusual. I may have misunderstood. LOL!

Oh my! That is so wonderful about the self portrait!!!! Congratulations to YC!! I'm so excited! If it wasn't exceptional she wouldn't have asked! :)

I'm so proud of YC with his career choice! I'm so thrilled he is doing so well! Of course I'm proud of OC with his too! :)

Congratulations on day one of your journey! You know the first step is the most important one! Today, do 20 wall pushups, and try to get to the gym at least once over the weekend! Yeppers! I'm pushing you! Hehe!

By the way, I did the marching yesterday and the wall pushups today. :) Tomorrow I do the exercise bike for 1/2 hour. :)

HUGS!

Good morning ladies! Happy Friday!!!

Susi... so sorry it was a bad day visiting your Dad yesterday. Will you be going today, or just wait till Monday and get back on schedule?

Greg and "Ralph" is very sweet... I needed that smile! I hope they have a good day together today!!!

Hoping that doctor signs off on that tank today!!! Good luck!
I guess they are busy there with everyone, so hard to think about checking everyone's tanks. I was thinking he was in his room, not that it was went he left and went for meals, etc. Sorry.

Auntie Cyndie... I also caught the news last night and was worried about you... (and Susi! Wasn't sure if it was going to get you too). Hoping it is better today for your drive into work and back home. We are getting that rain Tonight into Saturday morning, but it's supposed to clear up and we'll have a beautiful, warmer, weekend. Hoping you have a good weather weekend too!

Any big plans... other than your "date" to the grocery store with Jimmy, hee hee?! Is Kim coming for that visit? I hope so!!! If so, have fun!

THANK-YOU ladies for caring!!! I feel so loved and that is why I love coming here each day!! You both help to lift me up on those hard days, understand me, and there to listen! THANK-YOU!!!

The children were pretty good yesterday. LMFP wouldn't nap and very fussy during that time, so I got her us and she then just played, very happy! I really thought it was teething, but the Mom was worried, so brought her to urgent care. It was TEETHING!!! Hey, it was her money not mind, so... hee hee.

Oh, and Susi, I do know they fussy for dirty diapers, hee hee. Don't worry, I'm changing them (wink).

LMFP is starting up today already... that fake fussy... she has that older brother and I think they give her everything when she wants it, so she expects it here. Not happening, hee hee.
Lets just say, I'm happy it's Friday! But over all, it was a good week, so I won't complain.

Oh, I keep forgetting to tell you all... I think I didn't tell you?!!??... Little Cub's old art teacher asked for his self portrait he did last year, and she submitted it into the big fair they have around here. I'm very excited! It would be great if he got a ribbon for it?!! Here's hoping! Just being asked to put it in there, was great! He was excited.

Speaking of LC, he's doing a GREAT job with his Firefighter/EMT class he's taking this year. He loves it and is top of his class in things, so that's great! He came home yesterday all excited telling me about what they did in class. It's been a while since he came home telling me about school (with out me asking, etc.)! I'm so happy for him, since this is his career he's trying to get into.

Okay ladies, so I was going to start my "sharing" on Monday, but why put off for tomorrow that you can start today (wink)...

Mamabear's Journey, Day 1...
Susi, I did listen to you. I read your post and marched in place, but only for a minute. That was because Papabear was going to the store and he asked me to come. I suggested we walk! So we did! It takes only like 10-15 minutes to walk there (one way). But we walked very quickly and I could feel it in my legs. Also, I found it hard to do. Not a good sign!

I have watched my weight go up and down 10 pounds for months! I don't know when I'm "normal" and not bloated anymore. So I'll ignore that word "bloated" and I'll just go with what I weighed in today... sorry, not ready to share that number, but lets say I at least have to lose those 10 pounds to get back to what I was last May.

I talked to Papabear and we are changing our food up... healthier, smarter, and PORTIONS!!! We know we can't cut out all the "bad", but we can have it much less and watch that portions! It was working for me last Summer, so I can do this!

We are going to GET TO THE GYM, or walk like we did last night! We would of walked longer, but ran into our neighbor and he talks, so it started getting dark. I continued being good, by NOT snacking last night!!! I have been VERY bad with that lately.

So for day 1, I was happy with my start... Eating better, got some exercise in, and talked/made a game plan for us. I'll take it!!! Thanks for listening... Journey begun!

Hope you ladies have a good day! HUGS!!! (Thank-you!)

Cyndie, we're still waiting on the doc to okay the Rx. *sigh* He's usually right on top of things. Hopefully today. Susie told me yesterday that dad wastes it by not asking someone to turn it off. Him and several others are too impatient to wait for someone to take them to their rooms.
He gets there and puts the stationary air on and just leaves the tank run out.

They give the ones who can feed themselves their food first, then they work with the ones who need some help, then do the ones who they have to feed. So the first ones finished are the ones who want to go ahead and leave.

Unless they really have to go to the bathroom, they have nothing but time. It has to be their minds, other than that, I sure don't understand the impatience. :(

I saw on the news last night there was a lot of heavy rain coming through your area and I wondered if you would get off work before it got there. I've driven in rain like that before and I thought it was pretty scary. I'm glad you made it home okay!

HUGS!

Missy, I'm with Susi-it's fine with me if you blog on here. Sometimes I think we're the 3 Musketeers! I am so excited that you FINALLY have some good news about your period!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that your visit with your dad didn't go well. What's going on with his oxygen? On a happier note, I loved the story about Greg and Ralph!

It was a long, hard day at work. The rain was awful when I got off work. I had my windshield wipers on high and it was still hard to see.

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Gosh Missy, NO I don't mind you "blogging" on this thread! And I love the name, Mamabear's journey! :)

Greg did work outside today and was so tickled to find a wing feather from his Cardinal bird, Ralph. :) Funny the other day I told him to just ask him for one, today he finds one. LOL! He sure does enjoy that bird. Ralph comes around and sings to Greg sometimes when he's working out there. :)

We visited with dad today since we took yesterday off. He was okay for a while then started in. Oh well, like they say, it is what it is. And I don't much care for the statement. But sometimes it just fits.

I'm so happy for you that your period is lightening up! That is huge! :) Now if you can get the cramps to lighten up too it might be close to perfect. :)

I hope the kiddos continued to be fairly good for you today. Most kids cry when they want their britches changed. I'm sure glad LMFP was being good for you. I hope she was all day.

Thanks for sharing about the show. That is such a big difference and a healthy one for the guy! :)

Okay, now... give me 5 minutes of marching in place to get you started!! :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Thursday!

Susi... Hope Greg enjoys "playing" outside today. What will you do? Any fun plans for Susi?

Auntie Cyndie... hoping today is a good Thursday for you!

Hello Mom!

Melissa... hoping your computer problems are fixed soon! I hate that!

Good Morning Bonnie & Pam!

I keep forgetting to tell you... maybe it's because I don't want to jinx it, but I'm having... what I think... is my period, and it's going VERY well! I have VERY cramp days, but am able to just wear the ultra thin pads and liners!!! This is from a lady who wore "overnight" pads for most of her periods!!! I can't tell you HOW excited I am!!! It's just crazy (good). I have been dealing with this trying to figure out a solution since last MAY!!! So great to be here at the end of September and able to say... this just might work!!! I know you all know how this journey has been, so I just had to share my news!

Also... even though I'm listening to a screaming child right now, the day care children are doing much better!!! B doesn't like to be changed and his Mom brings him with a poop almost everyday (gggrrr). So I just changed him, so he's not happy.

But with all that screaming LMFP kept playing and is happy, so she's doing MUCH better! She does have her fussy times and most are faking... she's a girl and has an older brother, so faking gets attention (wink)... but she's doing well.

Then A, has been great for weeks! His Little brother is due into this world next Tuesday! The Mom is SO ready and is all baby. I don't know how she is standing her belly is so big, hee hee.

So all is going well here at the Bear house! God is good all the time... and all the time, God is good! hee hee.

That just means it's time for me to focus on ME! Papabear and I watched that summer show "Castaways". It was okay, but the ending... and I mean the very ending changed both of us. Not sure if any of you saw the show, but there was one guy who was 3 hundred and something with weight who went on the show. He knew, but it helped him realize he has to lose weight!

The last show, they let you know how they are doing, and he lost close to 200 pounds! He looks great!!!


Is it funny how just seeing him for that 10 seconds at the end of the show made such an impact on Papabear and myself?!!? Both of us were thinking about it ALL day yesterday. Then after dinner, I started to open up and talk to Papabear about it and he was like "same with me"... hee hee.

So is this the help I needed to get back going?!!? I don't know, but I'm gonna see where it takes me. I'm SO not happy with me right now. Walking upstairs bothers me some, I feel fat, and I don't feel right in my clothes. My period has messed me up, but it's time I get back on track!

So what better place to turn to, then my gals here on SP!! I was trying to think how can I do this and get back into the saddle... Last night as I tried to fall asleep, I thought about blogging. I don't care if no one reads it, but it's put out there. But, I'm not ready for ALL of SP to know my life, but you ladies do know, so how about something on here?!!?

Not to bore you (more than I already do, hee hee) I won't blog, but I WILL TRY very hard to post something each day (maybe Monday will be a catch up from the weekend too, hee hee) about something new or I'm continuing to do to change me. New healthy recipe, working out, something.... and making it positive!!!

My question to you all... so is that okay? Do you mind?!!? If not, I'll start today or tomorrow... depends if it's okay with you all. I'll have to think of a "name" for this, hee hee Mamabear's Journey?!!? One paw forward?!!? hee hee

Okay, on that note, time to do my job and feed the baby B. I'll be back. Thanks for reading! HUGS!

Missy you are very welcome. :) Thanks for passing on the info about Melissa. And thank you too Linda!

Cyndie, I hope I hear from them today that Dr. Bruce okayed it. I may have to stop out there if he doesn't and show them my POA papers again just in case. If he won't I know I can get Dr. Sielski to do it for me. I just hope I don't have to go that route.

I pray for your co-worker a safe journey and comfort and peace for her family.

Missy, I have heard the same thing as you about the nuts. We will surely hope that Susi is right that it's an old wives tale! I hope that you have the same success she did with the Coke!

Linda, thanks for sharing the good news about Melissa. Please let her know that we're happy to hear that and we miss her!

Susi, the plan that you have for your dad with the oxygen tank sounds good. As Missy said, it's unfortunate that the home can't do more.

You ladies are right about my co-worker. She came in today to pick up her check. Now she's headed to Mississippi. He dad was 77.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Thanks Susi!

Update from my Mom about Melissa. I guess she was texting with her...
"She is okay, she is having computer problems. The Hurricane passed her by, no damage, so we don't have to worry about her. She will be back as soon as her computer is fixed."

Thanks for the info Mom!

Susi, good luck with all that paperwork and stuff to get that tank. I do have to say, if your Dad has Alzheimer's and can't remember, I don't know why a nurse can't go in and just ask at a certain time, or something like that?!? In the long run, I guess you buying one will work out, but it's too bad the home couldn't of helped your Dad.

Hey, I keep forgetting to ask you... what did you say you did to remove that stain from your yellow shirt?!? Papabear has some white shorts that keep getting this orange stain on the leg part. He was actually getting mad at me with "what do I do when I wash clothes"?!?! Then I started to think about it... it's always on the top of his leg. Is it possible he has a rusty something under his desk?!?

Aaahhh...and guess who's the winner... hee hee. There IS a bar that holds one of those draw tables to hold your key board. He never uses it and is always hitting his leg on it... huuummm... Winner winner, chicken dinner!!!

Anywho, I could always get the other ones out, but this is bigger and not coming out this time. I just saw something on Pinterest with Asprins, but before I get those and try it, I'm looking to you Susi... hee hee.

Sorry for the LONG story, but thank-you for your help!

Okay, off to start dinner... spaghetti night. I was craving garlic bread, so just went to get a french loaf to make some homemade garlic bread... yumm!

I'll check in later... TTFN ladies! Hope you all are having a good day!

Missy, I think the nuts and winter thing is a wives tale. :) Most trees have a bumper crop every other year and then other ones depending on when they rooted, would or could have a lot on the alternating years. So there's always a lot of them every year. :)

I'm sure you are remembering correctly about the food. That's the way it was with my mom, Uncle Eddie, Aunt Regina and Aunt Betty. I think Uncle Ray stopped eating too but he was longer at it than the rest.

UH...NO, I sure wouldn't pay that amount for the shipping either.

I've been on the phone off and on all day with a rep from the Inogen company. At the home they told me that dad was wasting too much of the canister oxygen, he doesn't remember to ask someone to turn it off when he gets back there and he can't reach around and do it himself.

They suggested a portable oxygen concentrator. Well, Medicare won't pay for the whole thing and if they do they would use the canisters too. So what we're doing, Greg and I are going to buy one outright, through financing, because they are really expensive. The thing getting all the paper work ready and having Dr. Bruce sign an Rx for it and so on. But we're getting there. Last I know everything is ready except for the doc to fax the Rx to them.

Since it will legally belong to me, then when something happens to dad I will get it back. You never know when I may need it or even Greg.

HUGS!

Morning ladies!

Susi... That's just crazy how many nuts Greg picks up! They say when there is more nuts, we are going to have a bad Winter. Oh boy...

Sorry your Dad was in a mood yesterday. Tell them to give him the "sunshine smiling" breakfast from now on!! If only it worked that easily. HUGS If I'm remembering correctly, my Mom said my Grandmother stopped eating when she was ready to go see our Lord. It's got to be so hard... for your Daddy, and you. Again, BIG hugs!!!

The pie sounds so yummy! Glad it was good! I never used to eat those then I got one at Cracker Barrel for a party... the chocolate one of course... and it was VERY good! But like most things I enjoy, it's only me in my family, who likes it, so that leaves it all for JUST me to eat. Not something I want to do, so I don't really get it.

Auntie Cyndie... I feel so bad for your co-worker. I agree, since her Dad was not near by, she probably felt like she had to do "something" while waiting to leave and go there. Hope her coming in helped some and you don't get too boggled down.

Can you believe it's Wednesday?!?! I feel this week is going by fast. That's a good thing, and not, hee hee.

Because of the storms, Papabear didn't drive down to Ikea to get the dresser. I think at that time MA was getting hit bad. He called the store and they weren't answering. So he's try again Friday. We looked up shipping, if we were to get it that way, and it was STARTING at $199. I knew it would be a lot. But I can't believe people actually pay that. That is more than the dresser it's self, hee hee.

Time to post the QOTD...

Thank-you to all who take time tonight to pray for our family and friends in need of prayers! God Bless you all! (hugs)

TTFN...

Missy, I'm glad you didn't get too much water in the basement. :)

LOL! I'm sure those squirrels you saw will find plenty of food. :) Yesterday Greg got 5.. 5 gallon buckets full of them again. I'd hate to think of how many he's picked up this season. If he doesn't keep up with it you couldn't even walk in the yard. LOL! Ours are getting their fill of them though, so he isn't depriving them. LOL!

The pie was really good! I did over fill the crust some though and a few places around the edge got caramelized hard, but that wasn't a big problem. :) I'm good with it, it was my first test on it, so I know better the next time. :)

Yes, small pieces of the brownies. :) Cut them in 1 inch pieces and that works. :) Problem is they are like Lay's, you can't eat just one. :) You could probably freeze them though and have some for another time. :)

Congratulations to YC and his team!! :) Okay, that kid who blocked his shot probably did hurt, but hey, he deserved it for blocking the shot. Hehe! You know I was teasing. :)

Sorry to hear you have to lose a coupon on your books. :( At least you had one you could use anyway. :)

Cyndie, dad was grouchy again. *sigh* I swear on some days I think they give him a double mocha grumpy for breakfast. He kept saying he keeps asking God to take him and I tried to explain to him it doesn't work that way, he just doesn't get it anymore. :(

Then it was you don't know what it's like being tied to this air machine like a dog on a leash. Well, actually I do, I had to for almost a month once when I got out of the hospital. It just kept on going :(

It was nice of your co-worker to come in for a while. She probably needed to get it off her mind even if just for a little while. I pray for her safe travels when she goes and also for peace and comfort to her and the family and friends.

HUGS!

Susi, I must say, that pie sounds yummy! You'll have to let us know. How was your visit with your dad? As Missy said, I hope you enjoyed your nap!

Missy, that is awesome about Younger Cub! And more good news that your basement flooding isn't too bad. I'll pray that that continues!

My co-worker did come in for a while today. I think her dad was in his late 70's. Apparently, he died of a heart attack in his sleep. I guess she'll head to Mississippi later this week.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Good evening ladies!

Susi, we are getting water in the basement, but not bad at all. Papabear said the grass needed the rain, so that helped!

Of course Greg was outside...aaahhhh... that crazy guy! Hope he's still being safe and coming in for breaks! I went to get my mail this afternoon and started laughing to myself. If anyone saw me they probably thought I was a crazy lady. But with in the 1 minute walk I saw 5 squirrels! Racing across the street, going across my lawn, going into the woods. I just laughed thinking of Greg and picking up all those nuts and thinking how these guys were going crazy looking for nuts/food! They should get together (wink).

Hope you enjoyed your nap! AND that pecan pie that sounds yummy! I really have to make those brownies... you are making me crave them again!! hee hee... Small pieces Susi, right?!!? hee hee

I wish she would post something too just to say she's okay. We do miss her! I hope we don't lose her like we did with Cassi/Renee. Stay with us Melissa!!! Please!!! Missing you and your stories! Hope you are okay!!! HUGS

Little cub got to play in this game! WooHoo! They won 6 to 0! He did this awesome shot and it was going in then one of the other team's guys ran and hit it out just in time. While doing that, that kid ran right into the goal's post. Had to of hurt. But I was so bummed. It was a good curve ball for LC and would of gone in. Oh well. Hoping the coach was happy with his playing. The whole team, on the field and off, kept cheering on LC and his plays, so they see he's a good player... gggrrrr. Anywho... moving on.

It poured right up till noon, then rained here and there after till 2pm and the sun came out and dried up everything quickly! Hot and humid again.

Got everything cleaned up, so I'm gonna work on my photo books! I actually got one done and need to proof read it and then I can send it to be made. My coupon expires bid October. Bummer part, they have a coupon out for this week only... unlimited free pages!!! I love those coupons, but can't use them with another one, so since the 1st one will expire and I spent money on it, I really have to use that one. (Sad face) If I was ahead of the game like I am SOMETIMES, and had two books ready, I would be in heaven! Oh well...

Have a good night ladies!

Hope your day was good Auntie Cyndie!!! Hope that lady being out didn't make it for a bad day.

Susi, have a piece of pie for me! (wink)

Missy, I hope you didn't get a lot of water in the basement. I know it has to be bad if the manhole covers are coming off. :( I hope there hasn't been any damage anywhere.

Of course we know Greg was working outside again today. It got warmer out, but we didn't turn the ac back on....yet. I got about a 1/2 hour nap waiting for my alarm to go off.

The alarm was for the crockpot pecan pie I made today. I sure hope it tastes as good as it smells, I'll let you know. :) Yea, just what I need for my sugar numbers and weight. :(

I've seen Melissa posting her funnies on facebook but that's about all. I just wish since she's having health problems especially that she would check in with us more often.

Good luck to YC with his game tonight.

Morning ladies!
The rain has hit us this morning and it's flooding areas! Hoping my basement cane make it and stay dry. Doubtful, but can still hope!

They are saying the manholes on the streets are coming off due to all the rain and right around the school Little Cub has to go to for his class in the am hours. I warned him, but you know how teens are...aaagghhhh.

We have a warning for flash flooding till 2pm... they sent out the alarm at 8am. Like Susi said, at least it's not like down south. We'll get flooding, but I don't think anything like that... I hope!

Susi... not surprised Greg was able to fit in some "outside" time in yesterday, hee hee. I MIGHT, but that will be going to Little Cub's game, if it's still going on today. They say the rain should stop around 1pm. His game is at 4pm. We'll see.

Hope your Dad is in a good mood and happy to see you today! Will you go tomorrow too, or skip a day.

Auntie Cyndie... so very sorry for your co-worker's family! So sad. How old was he?!? Praying for them all!

Sorry it will make you busier at work... and no walking breaks. Hope it isn't TOO bad!!! Prayers for you too. HUGS

Has anyone heard/saw/read anything on if Melissa is okay?!!? Hoping she is!!!

Doing the crockpot chicken again. Just changing up the seasonings. Found a brown sugar one on here, but is to good in the pan. I'm wondering if I can do it in a crockpot?!!? Others posted they did it in an oven. I may look up other ones first. But with Little Cub having his away game tonight, this crockpot meals are so much easier!!!

Hope you all stay safe, and have a good day!
I'll check in later... TTFN...

Cyndie, I'm so sorry to hear about your co-worker's dad. I will lift the family up in prayer.

Our rain today is supposed to be 10% or below. I'm sure glad, we had enough of it yesterday. Of course it's only a drop compared to the coast. :(

So it will be off to visit with dad this morning. I sure hope he's in a decent mood this time.

HUGS!

Susi, I don't blame you for not going out in the rain to see your dad. Here's hoping that you have a good visit with him tomorrow! Thanks for the update on Truex. I'm happy for you that you were able to turn your A/C back off!

Missy, I think it's great that you and Papa Bear have been having such success at Ikea! And I do agree, you have seen enough accidents! It's great that no one was hurt! I hope that LMFP was okay without her pacifier!

The other agent in the office got a call at work that her dad had died in his sleep. He lived in Mississippi. Since we're now short-handed, I doubt that I'll be getting out for a walk. My prayers are with her, especially since it was unexpected!

Hugs!

Missy, I'm so glad your parents are doing okay. I pray your nephew is too. It's creeping up the coast now. :( Today it either rained, sprinkled or misted most of the day. Of course we get a 1/2 hour reprieve from it and Greg goes out to pick up hickory nuts. LOL!

It was windy last night so it brought a lot of them down again. He uses a grabber to pick them up. :) It sure beats bending over upmteen times! It works well for him so that's all that matters. :)

The rain did cool things off and the ac is back off and the windows open. :) We didn't go see dad today, so we'll go tomorrow. I just really didn't want to go out in the rain. I know we could have but I didn't feel like it.

I don't call him when we don't go. I took his cell a long time ago cause he broke it one too many times. I can call the desk and they will get them if I really want to talk to him though. I know if anything happens they will call and let me know. Then if that happened I would go out there even if it was a blizzard.

Truex is up to 2nd in points now. He was 3rd till yesterday. I hope he can get to first before the playoffs are finished.

Yikes on all the wrecks! Yes, you've seen your fill of them now no more! I'm just glad you weren't involved in any! :) The mother, even if she did have the wrong turn signal on, which I doubt, it was still that guys fault cause he shouldn't have been passing her there. He must have thought that double yellow wasn't meant for him. I'm just glad everyone was okay.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful visit with OC! I'm glad he enjoyed your visit with him too! I love that he was being sweet! :) Is he 20 now? I can't remember. :(

Ikea must love you guys! LOL! It sounds like a great plan with the dressers! You do know when it's finished we want to see it too! And of course we want to see the ones with OC!!!!! :)

I hope LMFP's got along okay without her "binky" today.

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Monday?!?!

Last I heard, which was yesterday, my Mom and Dad are doing fine. They got some rain and winds, but they are good! I do have to check on my nephew, he's in NC. He said he was further in state, so thought he'd be fine. But still want to check. So sad and praying for all down there effected!!!

Susi... Glad you turned your AC back on. Hope your rain isn't too bad and it cools stuff down some. We are humid too and have or AC back on also. We are expecting that rain tomorrow and some spots will be heavy rains. We are right in that heavy rain spot, but can't be anything as bad as down south. so sad!

I'm sure your Dad understands if you stay home today. When you stay home like that, do you call him? Hoping him missing you today will make Wednesday's visit as good one!

Third is good for Truex. Better than last place (wink). How is he in points? Still on the top? Hope it was a good race and Greg enjoyed his pizza. hee hee

Glad your friend is back safe and sound. Hope she was able to enjoy SOME of her vacation!

Auntie Cyndie... SO happy the fountain was back on!!! We all agreed it was too early to stop it. Hoping you get more nice walking days!! If it's raining for Susi and will tomorrow for us, you might be clear for it and have a good walking break days?!!? Here's hoping!

It would be really nice if Kim could come to visit you this weekend! Hoping for you! Do you text or talk to her a lot during the week?!? Hoping all is going well with her!

Love you had your "Date" food shopping, hee hee. We did too on Sunday. I hope soon you and Jimmy can get out for a real date day/night!!! That would be nice! hee hee

Hoping Melissa is doing okay?!!? I have to go check her FB page. Last I checked she had nothing there about the storm, so hoped that meant she was doing good! Prayers!

So my story from Friday...
A's parents were coming down my road to pick him up. I always watch, so make sure it's them by seeing them turn on their directional to turn into my driveway, then I get their son.

Saw their directional to turn and I turned to go get A. Then I heard a HUGE bang! I figured they hit my lamp post or worst my car... it was so loud!!! She's pregnant and due at the end of the month, so I then went to worried about her running back to the window!

Long story short, everyone was okay. The car behind them said they had their directional on to turn right ( which would be pulling off the side of the road, not left into my driveway). So the guy behind them went to pass them on the left side... that's going over the double yellow line first off, second... who passes someone on the left?!!

Since they were right there, they all pulled into our driveway. Glass every where. Again, everyone was okay, so that was what was most important! After they all left, we rushed off to Little Cub's soccer game and when I came back home, I was out there vacuuming my GRASS with the glass pieces. They guy that hit them was mad and kicked his mirror and the broken lights on my grass! I was NOT happy! Just yesterday, Papabear found another big piece in our driveway of glass, so NO bare/bear (hee hee) feet in the driveway!

On a happier note, we had a great visit with Older Cub Saturday! We got there and brought him out to lunch at a nice pub in Newport RI. Very ritzy!!! OC showed us where he works. He valets at a hotel there. It's $600 a night for their cheapest room! Then you have to also pay for parking!!! I can't imagine! Beautiful area. They were having a huge boat show going on, so it was packed... hard to find packing... but we did and had a great time.

Then we headed back to his dorm room. I hadn't seen it. It's cute and perfect for them four. Three of the guys are the same ones from last year. They are nice, polite guys! We then walked the campus, headed back to the dorm room, gave him his birthday gifts and headed out. It was great seeing him and he was so sweet. Nice having them older and mature! (wink)

On our way home Papabear HAD to stop at Ikea... we were just looking!!! Lets say we came home with a dresser and tomorrow Papabear is heading back to pick up another one (was out of stock and more were coming in then). Since he has his 1/2 day, he'll go there and be back for LC's soccer game.

The 1st one is for OC's closet in his room. Papabear is going to make it look like a built in, like he did with the bathroom. We had been looking for a dresser that fits, this is an inch too small, which will work perfectly!

The other one, he'll get tomorrow, is for LC's room. We have Reeses on this table Papabear made when we first got those pigs, and it's like an "L" shape. Now since Reese is getting older and slower, we are going to move him into the one cage/bin and that will fit on a dresser nicely. Then when Reeses "moves on", it will just be a dresser. But all this time LC will have the draws to use for socks and stuff like that and more space for folded clothes. I'm excited.

Okay, so as we drove home from Ikea, there was another accident that just happened right before we got there in the tunnel in Boston. THEN we were like 15 minutes away from home... it was late and I was crampy and getting tired... and an accident happened about a bit before us and it took us over an hour to get home from that spot!!! Looked like with both accidents that people were okay. I saw police got by, but never the ambulance. Though for the second one on the highway, one car looked bad and I only saw one guy near the other car. So hoping they were okay too!!!

But that was THREE accidents in two days, so I'm done seeing them, right!?!! Again, none were us, so that was VERY good and everyone "looked" okay, so that is good!

I'm gonna get my pictures off my camera of OC and our visit soon and will post them here, if you want to see him... hee hee.

I hope you all have a good day. So far it's good here. I'm worried because LMFP's mom forgot her pacifier again. The bottle has helped me through the first fussy moment, but when nappy comes... hummm... fingers crossed!

I'll check in later... Hugs ladies!

Susi, I just loved your produce pun!

Thanks for my race day update! I'm glad to hear that you had an easy race day menu. You deserve it! As for Truex, I hope that all ends well

Jimmy was in the garage rotating my tires today. While he did that, I did laundry and the treadmill.

Enjoy the last of your weekend.

Hugs!

At least the race started on time today, at 3. It's still running and last I checked Truex was in 2nd. Hopefully he can finally do good today.

My silly man just had to have pizza. *sigh* Oh well, it was a frozen one so easy for me after cleaning today. LOL!

I hope you had a good day.

Cyndie, some of the teams are from VA and GA too. I'm just hoping their homes and families are safe, as much as everyone else's. Tomorrow we're supposed to get a lot of rain from the looks of it. We may be staying home from visiting dad.

I'm glad I mentioned the fountain so you could check on it. :) I was so glad it was back on. :)

Those hot dates to the grocery, at least they produce ..produce. Hehe!

Susi, I am so happy to hear that your friend is back safe and sound! I'm sorry to hear that you had to turn your A/C back on. I guess we'll all have to see how much rain we get from Florence.

As for race day, I'm happy to hear that the race is out west. I know that lots of the teams are based in North Carolina. I wonder about that.

I was excited about the fountain being back on. I wouldn't have thought about walking past there if you hadn't mentioned it to me!

Jimmy and I went on our hot date to the grocery store:) I hope that you and Greg enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, I'm praying for your parents too. I hope it isn't too bad there.

I get you doing the dishes. :) When I'm mad or upset I can clean like wildfire! Have a safe trip and fun with OC today, and remember to wish him happy birthday from us. :)

Cyndie, we turned the ac back on last night, it got humid worse than it was. There would have been no sleeping if we hadn't.

Not sure of the menu yet, I know it's out west this time, so it should run okay.

What a beautiful way to end your work week! :) Getting that walk in to the bank and the fountain being back on is so wonderful. :) They may have just been cleaning it or something like that, just glad you can still enjoy it. :)

HUGS!

Oh my friend is back home from her trip safe and sound. :)

Missy, you're right about Kim. Notre Dame has an away game next weekend, so hopefully, everything works out! I'm sorry about your evening. I'm glad that you have your visit to OC. Do keep us updated on your parents!

Susi, what a sweet memory you have of your mom! Speaking of your parents, that's good news that you have a couple of days off from your dad. You and Greg stay safe and in that heat and humidity! What's the race day menu?

Thank you for the good thoughts, Gal Pals! It was beautiful here today. I got to walk to the bank. And you were right, the fountain was back on! WooHoo! Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Good evening ladies.
Susi... sorry your dad was in a bad mood again today. Hope you can put that aside and enjoy your weekend. Here's to Monday him being in a better mood!

Those are nice memories of your Mom!!

Speaking of Moms, I did talk to my parents. It was a nice video chat! The winds were just starting when we were ending our call (noonish). Hoping all is okay with them and everyone!

As for my bad evening, I'll be fine. I always am, just was hurt. And doing the dishes, hee hee, I was doing them trying to get my mind off of it all and after I was done,is when I felt I needed to just get out of there. (wink)

I have to get going, but remind me to tell you all about what happened today when one of my parents was picking up their son...

Have a good evening (hugs)

You're welcome Missy. I can remember my mom singing it to me when I was little. :) I've always loved it. My earliest memory is of her singing that and I was in her arms, holding her ear lobe and sucking my thumb. The thumb didn't taste good unless I had an earlobe or my finger was looped up over my nose. LOL!

If I sang it to dad it would make the whole place ill. LOL! Little babies can handle it but anyone else knows how tone deaf I am. LOL! Dad was in his normal grump mode today but we eventually got through it. Glad I have a couple days away. Monday too if it's raining like they say it will.

I'm so sorry you had a bad evening :( I would have told them to do the dishes before I left. We so love our men but there are times! :( I hope this evening and weekend are much better. I'm glad your friend could walk the mall with you. :) That always helps some. :)

It is a shame you couldn't visit OC by yourself. But it will be good even so. :) Have a safe trip and have fun.

I hope your parents can skype with you. It is a worry. I hope they don't get much more than some wind and rain. If so I do hope they go to your sisters. I want them to be safe too.

HUGS!

Good morning ladies! Happy Friday!

Susi... that song is very pretty. I never heard of it. Thanks for posting a link.
Hoping today goes good with your Dad! Too bad you couldn't sing that song to him and it would all be better! hee hee... Good luck! HUGS

YES, I could make the brownies, but I really am trying to be good and NOT have them, so that is why I won't make them. If Papabear makes them, it's not ME who did it, so... hee hee I started my period, so that is why I was craving them so much this week! Again though, I'm trying to be good. It's hard...

Hope you are able to stay in and keep cool in that heat Susi! Greg too!!! Good luck with him. Though, he has been good in the past, so hopefully he will be today too. That heat is coming for us over the weekend. Today is over cast so far.

Auntie Cyndie... sounds like a good game plan for today! Hope you can get that walk in! Good luck! Have a good Friday!

Too bad about Kim not coming, but I understand. Traffic is awful and I'm sure that will cause a lot! Maybe next weekend?!!? Praying! Hope you have a good weekend with Jimmy! You can have your favorite "Date"... food shopping, hee hee. That is what we get every Sunday too (Papabear and I).

Last night I had a rough night. I was doing my normal reminding Little Cub about things, and he was such a jerk back to me. Papabear just sat there. I'm sure it was my period, but I just got mad and left! I turned off my phone too, so they couldn't track me!

I went to our church, then texted my girlfriend and we walked the mall. I just couldn't be in that house! That happened at dinner, I left right after... of course I cleaned up first... and got home a little after 9:30pm. Little cub was already in bed.

Papabear, of course, has no idea what LC did because he went to the gym and she he got home, LC was already in bed. We didn't talk much about it when I got home and this morning... even though I told myself I wasn't going to... I made sure LC was up so he'd make it to school on time. He did give that side hug and say good bye when he left, but that was it.

Lets say I can't wait to see Older Cub tomorrow!!! He'll help cheer me up! He understands too. Just too bad Papabear will be there, hee hee. Anywho... Just a poopie night and NOT how I wanted to start my weekend!

As far as I know, my parents are supposed to get strong winds and the rain. I asked them to Skype today, but haven't heard from them. Not sure if they can. I know my Mom has a doctor's appointment today. She talks like she's going, but I would guess it would depend on how bad the storm is. My sister told them if it gets too bad, they can come stay with her, so that's good!

Okay, I have to do snackie time with the little ones. Hope you all have a good day! I'll try to check in later. HUGS... stay safe ladies!

youtu.be/jq_NhD-3n0A I hope this link gets you to the song. :)

Greg likes the white or vanilla cake much more than I do. He was happy last night. :) If Papabear won't make the brownies why don't you? :)

I'm glad the little ones were good for you yesterday, hoping the same for today. Did you find out if your parents were doing okay?

Cyndie, I'm afraid Florence will turn out bad. It's already wreaking havoc on the Carolinas. :(

I sure hope you get that walk to the bank today and the fountain is running.

It's supposed to get to 86 here today with a 97% humidity. I'll more than likely stay in when we get back from visiting with dad. I'm hoping he'll at least be in an okay mood.

Missy, I'm not sure when Kim is coming over. She was going to come over Saturday, until she found out that Notre Dame has another home game. We live so close to the university that getting here on game day can be a pain! I'm not sure what Jimmy and I will do.

Susi, I hope that you and Greg had a good day today. It was cloudy here most of the day today. I'm sorry to hear that your friend's vacation has been impacted by Florence. Right now we're all praying that it doesn't turn out as bad as forecast!

I didn't get to go out for a walking break today./ However, we're supposed to have a high of 81 degrees, so I'm hoping to get to walk to the bank. I'll be even more excited if you're right, and the fountain is back on!

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Cyndie
