Cyndie, Truex came in 9th. He had some car trouble off and on. He's still 4th in the playoffs though but next week is an elimination race. :( Hopefully he won't be one to get eliminated. Now another driver is after Lagano, so he needs to watch what he does. LOL!

I'm glad you got out to do some shopping and came back with ideas! That always helps for when you go to get it for real. :) I always like to know ahead of time what I would be getting someone.

HUGS!

Susi, you're right, walking in my neighborhood was much better than the treadmill!

I do agree with you about the race day menu! You're right, Stouffer's is so good, and easy!

It's good that you check in with the home, so you know what's really going on with your dad.

As always, I look forward to hearing about the race.

I went out to do some Christmas shopping today. I came home empty-handed, but I do have ideas!

Enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Cyndie, I'm glad you had a nice day for taking a walk. Much better than the treadmill. :)

Lasagna is on the menu for the race. It's a Stouffer's but they are so good. Of course garlic bread and a side salad with that. :)

Dad always says he just sits and is quiet, but they've told me different so I know better. I think in his mind he believes what he's saying, but it comes out like fibs if a person doesn't know his problem.

Have a great day!

HUGS!

Susi, I don't think you were bad to have a jammie day today. It's just what you needed!

I'm glad that your dad is bonding with the other veterans at the home. Here's hoping he's in a good mood when you go to see him Monday.

Jimmy put a new water pump and thermostat in my car today. It was a pretty day here today-sunny and in the 50's. While he was doing that, I went out for a walk.

What's on the race day menu for tomorrow? Go, Truex!!

Enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

It stayed a little chilly out today but of course we know who was working outside. LOL! At least it wasn't raining.

I was bad and had a jammie day. I need to get off my big rear and on to the exercise bike again, I kind of dropped it since I had my surgery. Of course I'll be cleaning tomorrow, so today I need to finish resting up. Hehe!

Missy, I think 5 pts for the mac & cheese! :)

I know I shouldn't keep my worries from Greg but he gets way too worried and his bp goes up. That always worries me with his heart problems. :(

Rochelle said dad really did enjoy the outing. :) There are only 3 there who are Veterans now and they seem to be fairly close. They all eat at the same table along with dad's room mate. They have told me they do talk a lot and enjoy each other's company, but dad would never admit it.

I'm glad YC didn't have to go to practice. :) And it was nice of his girl to come and visit with him when he was back from his procedure. Maybe 2 points for that. Hehe!

I hope the guys came and bought the trailer. There are a lot out there who will dicker to a ridiculous number. My deceased BIL was like that really bad. He tried to pull a fast one on me when mom passed and I was selling her car, came and said he had only $300 less with him than I was asking, cash, it was already lower than I wanted, so I told him I would hold it till he got the rest. LOL! Good thing I already knew his tricks. HEHE!

I hope you were able to make it to Kohl's, if not, maybe today. I wouldn't have left the kids in the house alone either. :)

Thank you Cyndie! Yes, Sumburger is always good! They have the best burgers around. They have a special secret sauce they put on them. :) And their fries are perfect, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. :)

The home did post pictures of the things at the Memorial and I'm sure dad and the others enjoyed going to see it. :) Dad probably had some stories to tell when they got to the Korean area. He still loves to talk about it. Most don't but he sure keeps the stories going.

I really don't get how hard it is for people to figure out an off light means no. I think some of the parents need educated as well as the kids.

I hope you have a nice relaxing day today. I'm planning on it. :)

Susi, I am so excited about your great news! I hope that Sumburger was awesome! And that's a great photo of your dad. I hope that his trip to the memorial is all that WE think it would be!

Missy, Younger Cub did well to pick a girl who likes his mom's mac & cheese! I'm glad to hear that he's doing well with his teeth. I agree with you about not leaving "the children" home alone!

I did forget to say yesterday that I only had one group of kids who came and knocked at our door. I had all of the lights off. As you said, that should say, "not participating". So far, we don't have any weekend plans.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Hello ladies...

Little Cub is doing well. His girlfriend is over and so they are watching TV and talking. She came over this afternoon.... not sure what time she's staying to (well at least not past our time we want her gone, hee hee). She had dinner with us and she loved my mac-n-cheese, so that's great! Two points for her... haa haa.

Susi... glad Greg found out and especially happy all worked out! You shouldn't hold stuff like that in!!! Next time, share with him (wink). He loves you and would want to know.

Of course he was out there blowing the leaves! That's our Greg!!! Very devoted!!! It poured all day here. I was happy LC didn't have to go practice in the rain again!

That's awesome about the Home taking them to the memorial! I'm sure they all loved it, but I'm so happy for your daddy! He looks very happy!!!

Heading to Kohls soon. Waiting on Papabear. He has someone coming to buy his trailer, but I'm thinking he's not coming (sad face). The guy texted right before coming and asked if he's go lower and then asked for paying 1/2 the price! NOPE, Papabear will only go down $100 and I think they guys didn't like that answer. Anyways, I don't want to leave for Kohls and then Papabear outside, leaving the "children" a lone in the house, So I wait. GGGRRRR...

Going to post my dinner for tonight... TTFN. Have a good evening ladies! Auntie Cyndie, hope you had a wonderful day!!!

Thank you Missy! I was feeling good so I didn't think anything was wrong but you just never know. Greg found out at the last minute this morning I was worried. I told him I would go get a paper, to keep my mind occupied. Dummy me! Oh well. The Sumburger was a great celebration! :)

The home took the Veteran's to our fairgrounds today to see the traveling Memorial. :)



I know he was excited about that! :)

I'm glad this was your easy day but poor mom and LMFP. I always feel bad for little ones when they get sick. :(

I hope YC got through the removal today okay. We can all easily fast when we don't HAVE to but when we do for something like that, it's a whole new thing. :(

The leaves were wet again this afternoon and Mr. Blower went out after we got back. LOL! He always says that every one he gets up now, he won't have to do the next time. I guess I understand that but...

Hobby Lobby is a great way to relax and so is Kohl's. Hehe! Great on having the extra Kohl's "money" I hope you found something really neat!

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Friday!

No LMFP today, her mom texted and said she woke up with a fever. No break for her. I feel bad! The joys of being a parent I guess. Anyways, easy day, and I'm happy with that!

Papabear took LC to his appointment for his wisdom teeth to come out. LC couldn't eat last night, before this all, and you would think he was being tortured, hee hee. He'll be happy to eat when he gets home (wink).

Auntie Cyndie... sorry you had to go back to your salads, but for me, I would enjoy that, so... hee hee. But I guess it's always good to change it up some, like the BBQ the other day. Hope you are having a good Friday!!! Any plans this weekend?

Susi... I understand you don't want Greg to be scared, but you can't hold that all in too. I'm glad you told us! You have to talk to someone! We are here for you!!! I'm praying for you... all will be good! HUGS!

I was thinking... the other day my neighbor popped her head over the fence to ask Papabear why he was mowing the wet leaves?!? It had rained in the morning and night before, but had been done for a few hours, so he went out to mow them. I was just about to ask about Greg blowing the wet leaves, hee hee. Hope he had fun?!!?? hee hee

I'm happy it's Friday and a weekend coming!!! I think I need it. Not sure what I'm doing other than going to the Finals game for LC, but I hope to relax, do something fun for me... walk Hobby Lobby?!?! Never got there last weekend. Huuummm...

I do want to sew our pillow cases. With the new sheets, we got King pillow cases, but have standard pillows, so I'll sew them, since they are the wick, keep cool material. I'm loving our new sheets, BTW.

Oh speaking of sheets, which I got at Kohls... I have my Kohls coupons again, so I'm going there tonight... if Little Cub is doing well. I have $10 Kohl's cash, 20% off, and $15 dollars on my rewards!!! That $25 free and can get 20% off what I get. I'm gonna go looking, hee hee.

Time to post the QOTD. Hope you all have a good day! I'll check in later.

Missy, I suppose some think with the lights off it makes it spookier. LOL!

Cyndie, thanks for the prayers. For as long as I had smoked it's always going to be a worrisome thing getting that done. :( Greg keeps asking me if I'm worried, I tell him no, but in honesty I am. I don't want him worrying too.

It was rainy here all day yesterday but it didn't stop Greg from going out and blowing leaves. :( Bummer on having to go back to salad, but we all know it is better for you. :)

Susi, I think it's great that you decided not to pass out candy! And it's awesome that you won't be tempted by the leftovers! Like Missy, I'm praying that you get that Sumburger!

Missy, congratulations to Younger Cub and the Bulldogs on their victory! Thanks for the update on my Spark Twin. Enjoy your easy Friday!

It was a cold and rainy day here. There was no cooking by the boss, so I had to get back to my usual salad.

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Cyndie

We've had the lights on rule for Halloween for years too. But there are so many that are messed up... lights on means you go to the house?!? Or you don't?!!? I always thought if the lights were on you go, but when we would bring the cubs, people would be mad no one was going to their "dark" house, or visa versa... why are people coming when I don't want them too... I put the light on! hee hee

YC's wisdom teeth appointment is tomorrow morning. I can't tell if Papabear or Little cub is more excited to have the day off, hee hee.

Yes, I would love for Melissa to come visit again too! Hoping it all works out for her!

Hope you are having a good day?!!? Auntie Cyndie too?!! My day just ended, so time to REST and then make dinner. Little Cub asked for Ham, so that is what we are having... then off to church tonight... All Saints Day.

Have a good one ladies!

Missy, before we would always get stuff we liked too so we could have the left overs. I'm glad he didn't do it this time. Funny though I decided to chew a piece of bubble gum for the first time in years. LOL! I'm not a gum chewer but it was fun for a change. LOL!

I hope YC did well with the appt. It's a shame though he's going to miss the celebration. :( Congratulations to them for the win and heading to the finals! That is awesome! :)

We have a kind of rule here for halloween that if the porch lights aren't on you don't stop. It does work well, so you don't have to keep listening to the bell ring. :)

It would be nice if Melissa would come back. I hope she does soon. Thanks for letting us know, I missed that one.

Morning ladies! Happy November 1st, All Saint's Day!

Susi... good for you!! You have to start some time, so why not this year! I'm sure Greg will enjoy slowly eating that "leftover" candy. I always would get stuff I don't like, to help with me NOT eating it! I like this NOT getting it at all!!! hee hee.

I agree, you and Greg WELL DESERVE taking some days off from visiting your Dad! It's hard, you want to see him, but then you have to take that space because of those grumpy or hard days with him you need to collect yourself so you can still enjoy seeing him. You don't want to get to the point you are so annoyed. So good for you! Hoping for good results, so you can go to your Sumburger. Praying...

I got my wisdom teeth out too, around LC's age also. All went well for me. I'm sure he'll do well too. The hard part, the team is getting together for a celebration dinner... ribs, steaks, etc... and he won't be up to going, and if he was, can't eat any of it. Also, since THEY WON last night, they are moving on to the Finals!!! If that STUPID coach was to put him in to play, he would REALLY have to be careful not to get hit. For once I'm hoping he doesn't play. But who am I kidding, he won't anyway... so we'll be fine.

Auntie Cyndie... That was nice of your boss! I'm sure it'll be times like that, that you will miss! But I would "miss" it for not working!!! hee hee. Glad you had a good day! Hoping today is just as enjoyable!!!

Hope your hidding in the basement went well for you last night! I'm sure you still got a few doorbell rings here and there, hee hee.

Well B was doing good till now. He just switches in a heart beat. I'll go try some food, bottle... and went neither of those work... BED!!!

I'll be back....

Oh, before I go though, I said something to Melissa about her pictures she posted on FB and she came back and said... "I have a new computer, so maybe I can head back to the valley! I just have to get used to the keyboard!". It would be great to have our "sister" back in the Valley!!!

TTFN ladies... have a good morning! emoticon

Missy, at the almost last minute last night we decided not to hand out candy. Enough is enough. Of course we are stuck with the candy, but I don't much care for the kind Greg got, it's pretty much all sour stuff, he'll take care of it eventually. :) There are quite a few suckers that I may have one or 2 of, but they're not really my thing either. :)

How did the game go last night? I hope it wasn't cold and rainy. I feel bad YC is getting his wisdom teeth out, but it will be so much better for him. I had all 4 of mine out back in the 70's. They weren't bothering me, but the dentist said there was so little space back there that they would and probably sooner than later. I was glad I had them done. :)

Cyndie, I hope the party helped dad's mood too, only I won't know. My bad! Since I have the doc's tomorrow to get the results of my lung scan I told him we weren't coming that day and would see him on Monday. I told Greg I figured if the other 2 can get by with one day or less a week why can't we? It's not like we do that all the time like they do!

Greg did say for good results we could go to Sumburger, that is if it isn't storming or snowing. It sure better not be. I can only pray the results are good ones!

I love your boss cooked out for all of you yesterday. :) I know it will be hard for a while missing your co-workers, but I think like Missy said, you can always schedule an evening out with them. :) I sure don't blame you for not missing the work. I know I sure didn't when I quit! :)

HUGS!

Susi, I'm happy to hear that you were able to get some extra medicine. I'm sure it's just what the doctor ordered! As for your dad, I hope the Halloween party helped with his mood!

Missy, I do have to agree Susi, I hope B's mom loosens up some. It will make life better for everyone! I hope that YC did well in his game tonight and that all goes well with his teeth!

We had a cookout at work today. It was great having the boss cook for us. I will miss the people, but I won't miss the work!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Susi... glad you were able to get back to bed some. Sorry your Dad was up and down... hope it didn't ruin your day! The Nursing home behind us must be doing something for all the people today. There are a lot of extra cars out there.

Hope the rain holds off for your trick or treaters. Never fun when it's raining and yucky! I don't miss those days, hee hee. Many a Halloweens we walked in snow! Today is 50 and nice. Not sure what it will be like at 6pm, but better then 30 and below!

B was B today. I just kept trying the food and put him to bed... he slept more than usual. His nose is runny to, so he's probably sick! One more day with him, then my easy Friday... we'll I'll have LC here... wisdom teeth are coming out! Should be fun!

Have to get ready for the soccer game tonight... Go Bulldogs, and PLEASE have Little Cub play more than 15 minutes or less!!! (fingers crossed)

Missy, I hope B ended up being good for you today. I was able to get back to sleep for a couple of hours this morning. Dad was up and down with his mood but I choose to like the good one. :) It doesn't make any difference to him if today is halloween or not, but they are having a little party for them this afternoon.

We do the candy tonight. It's been raining most of the day and is misting right now, so who knows if any kids will be out or not this evening. I think next year we'll just stop doing it.

I think B's mom needs some parenting lessons! Geesh! Does she know that she doesn't have to be right on the button with the feeding?? Part of me wants to laugh at her, the other part feels sorry for her that she just doesn't get it. I hope he was in a good mood when he woke up.

HUGS!

Happy Halloween everyone! I'm wearing my orange and will give the day care children some play balls with faces (I don't do candy), and color a pumpkin, but that's about all I do for Halloween, not my holiday, hee hee.

Susi... hope you were able to get back to sleep!! Also hoping your visit with your Dad goes well today! Maybe with it being Halloween, he'll be in a good mood?!!? Good luck!

I feel so bad for everyone who has to go through cancer!!! It's so hard on them and their families! I will continue to pray for Mark & Dawn!!!

How did handing out candy last night go Susi? Have fun tonight!?! You should stop if you want to. I'm sure the children these days get a lot of "candy" around now! Handing out candy is made easy for us... we get one to four children the most... if that! I don't feel bad not doing it and this year I have a good excuse! Go Bulldogs!!! hee hee

Don't get me started on B... this morning she walked in and said he seemed hungry, so she started to feed him before coming, but didn't want to get him off schedule! I came back with "Well, he's not eating here in the morning, so you could of!" She just smiled. GGGRRR!

LMFP is late today because her brother is sick again, so it looked like B was going to be good. Then he fussed, so I tried a bottle. He wasn't drinking it... just making a mess.. so I sat him up to play, he fussed, so to bed he went! We'll see if this works! Maybe when he comes in, straight to bed he'll go and he'll wake up happy! Fingers crossed. Now I know it wasn't LMFP, if he fussed and she's not here yet!

Auntie Cyndie... we posted at the same time last night, hee hee. Happy you were able to go for your walk yesterday! It's cold out right now... frost on the windows... but supposed to be 50 today! Hoping you have the same weather, so you can get another walk in!!! Have a good day!

Well time to post the QOTD...

Cyndie, I'll settle for going to Chillicothe to Sumburger for my favorite. :) If my scan comes in okay on Friday, I'm thinking I'll tell Greg we need to go there to celebrate. Hehe! Haven't been there for a good while again.

I'm so glad you could get out for your walk yesterday. I hope the rest of the week is just as nice.

I was considering not handing out candy this year, but maybe next I'll stop. I think it's getting too expensive and I'm just not up to standing out in what seems to be cold every year. Greg did it for me last year cause I wasn't up to it and I hate to ask him again. He's always out there with me when I do hand it out. :)

Thank you for the extra prayers. It's going to be hard for them to deal with the surgery and the feeding tube, but if all the cancer is truly gone, it will be so worth it. I'm so very sick of the word cancer! So many including my dad in my family on both sides have had it and it sucks!

I still can't get over B's mom worrying about him not eating as much for you. He's clearly not starving so what's the problem? I think she is going to be a helicopter mom before he's even old enough to go to school, had to deal with. :(

We'll visit with dad today. I want to go back to bed for a while, so depending on when I get back up it may be this afternoon instead of this morning.

HUGS!

Susi... I'm praying very hard for Mark & Dawn. It's gotta be so hard for them. Praying, praying praying! I'm glad she has you to talk to! HUGS for you all!!!

Yes, in this world today Halloween is just scary. I'm very happy I can say we are done with it. Till I have grandchildren... which better be a LONG time from now! I have seen where you do "trunk trick or treating". People in a town go to a parking lot and the children go from car to car. We did it once with the cubs. It's usually done in the day time, and safe for the children. It's hard... I understand wanting the little ones to have fun and experience it, but hard with all the bad in the world!

I did not go to the gym. (Sad face hanging down low in shame!) I could of, but waited for Papabear to say something about going, and he didn't and honestly I was relieved. I did my exercises here, which really aren't much, but something?!!? I was already to go, but I got off schedule with dinner being late, and then it's easy to say no. Bad girl, I know...

As for B... one of the main reasons for my headache right now... I do let him cry and do not tell the other children to stay away. He has to learn. I did talk to the mother... she wants me to feed him at 8:30am... she drops off at 8am. I explain he doesn't want the food and maybe I should just put him to bed when he comes, because SOMETIMES when he wakes up after, he's happy and is fine with LMFP near him. I might try it tomorrow.

The Mom is not happy he's not eating or drinking as much as he does at home on the weekend. But he's the ONLY child there and with mom and dad's full attention... of course he's gonna eat. She's being nice about it all, but is always bring it up, so you can tell she's not happy. But I can't force him to eat/drink, so it's what it is!

On that note, I'm gonna let you go. I will say some extra prayers for Mark & Dawn tonight! Hope you had a good day Susi & Cyndie!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that you and Greg won't be able to have a weekend getaway this year. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a day trip!

Missy, I think it's great that you won't be home for trick-or-treat. Jimmy has to work, so I'll be "hiding" in our family room (on the lower level).

Fortunately, it was a great day here, so I was able to get a walk in. It was great to get out of the office!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

I'm asking for heavy duty prayers for Mark and Dawn. She just texted me and there is a slight decrease in the tumor and some shrinkage in the lymph nodes. There's a laparoscopy the last week of Nov to see if it's spread and not showing up. The first week of Dec they will do a surgery to remove the lower part of the esophagus and upper part of the stomach. He'll be in ICU for 3-4 days and in the hospital for 11-14 days. They are having trouble mentally preparing for all this, so please give it all you can. THANKS!

Frankly, I kind of wish they would do away with trick or treating. I do enjoy seeing the little ones dressed up but being out is so dangerous and even with the parents with them it still is. Two years ago we had a man try to grab a little one and her dad was standing right there with her. He wrestled him to the ground and they called the police. It was frightening!

We're chilly here to and it's 60 out, but the sun is shinning. It was really cold out this morning at 35.

I do hope you can make it to the gym tonight. There are times I wish I was still at the Y and other times I'm glad I quit.

I sure hope B gets use to being around other kids. If he doesn't, he will be a handful when he goes to school. :( But I hope he does for your sake more than anything. Just let him cry when they get near, maybe eventually he'll find out there's nothing to throw a fit about. :)

HUGS!!

Good morning ladies! Is it ONLY Tuesday, aaaggghhh.

Susi... this morning they were talking about your begger's night. It's not something we do around here, so they didn't know what it was... BUT I did, hee hee! I'm so glad we don't do it here. One night is good enough for me. I would be lying if I didn't say how happy I am that I'm going to a soccer game at 6pm and will miss the whole trick or treating!!!

So Greg is blowing leaves! Has that neighbor complained yet about the noise?!! Hope she is good this year!

If you don't get out to your place for the weekend, I hope you can do a day trip, or get away for a day doing something!!! Break up your time because this winter comes. If you are like us, it's coming soon around here!!!
emoticon

Auntie Cyndie... My Dad and Godmother waited too to tell their employer. They wanted all their ducks in a row before! I agree with Jimmy. Good luck!!! I'm excited for you two!!!

My weather is looking pretty nice today (for in the Fall). Chilly, but sun is out. Maybe yours is good for squeezing in a little walking break?!!? Hoping you can get a couple more in before the winter hits!

Have a good day at work Auntie!! emoticon

YES Susi, we are planning on going to the gym tonight!!! I was all ready to go, but something came up last night and it had to be taken care of sadly. Joys of being a Mom and wife! Anywho, today is a new day! I did some exercises here at home and did well with my eating!

LMFP is doing really good at walking now! She's so happy to get around! B is here today and fussy as always. Mostly because the other children come near him. Ggggrrr. A and D are doing good. Hoping for a good day, and maybe I can squeeze in some other exercises!

Well I guess I should post the QOTD and see if I can feed B. Sense they children got him crying, now that he started, I might have to feed him and get him to bed. Well see. I want him to learn to be around them! Getting my Tylenol, hee hee

I'll be back ladies...

Missy, I've had so many appts I can't even keep them straight. LOL! I promise I won't pick Greg up till my4 weeks is up at least. LOL!

I doubt we'll be going away for the weekend now this year. The weather is getting crazy again and Greg has started leaf blowing. I still have 2 more appointments and he has one coming up. This was a bad year for getting away. :( We may take a day trip though if we can get by with it on a decent day.

I know you will do it, are you going to try to go to the gym again today??? :)

Cyndie, I understand Jimmy wanting you to wait till after your appt. :)

They added a half hour on to our beggar's night, so now it's 2 hours long. :( I don't know if I can stay out there that long, but probably at least part of it. We have to get our candy today sometime.

HUGS!

Missy, I wanted to tell my employers, but Jimmy wants me to wait until after our appointment. We know you're frugal, way to go o those sheets. You saved enough to re-do JC's picture. TeeHee

Susi, thanks for the info on Truex, even though it was disappointing. On a more positive note, I was excited about the good news on your appointment. As a bonus, hopefully your dad will be over his "Monday moodies" by the time you get there!

I don't know if Jimmy will have to work on Halloween, so I haven't bought any candy yet. Right now, we have a 70% chance of rain Wednesday, so maybe that will temptation I can avoid!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

I tried to answer you at 4:30pm... can you see how I didn't finish, hee hee. Try number two!

Susi... glad your appointment went so well. Sorry for messing up which appointment it was today. Gggrrr. Now I know you like to give Greg a big bear hug and pick him off the floor, but no doing that for a few more weeks.
emoticon emoticon

I'm glad your dad understood about you not coming on those not so good weather days! I would think it's a lot for you! Time for you and Greg to get away for a weekend?!!??!!

I totally understand about that guy and racing!!! With the local guy I loved and cheered on, he's "Logano" was number #50. He was like what you were saying. And then one year, my guy's sponsor picked up and team mate, and guess who it was... aaagghhhh! That was hard for us all! And the track would play with that, because they knew!!!
emoticon

Our bedroom couldn't take a king bed either. We are fine with our bed. The super queen is 6 inches wider than a regular queen I guess.

So something happened tonight... as you see I started this post at 4:30 and finally finishing it at 9:44pm! But that means going to the gym, did not happen! BUT that is not getting me down, tomorrow is another day! I have 90 days to do this, and I will! hee hee

Hope you all are having a good night!

Missy, my appt today was the post op with the surgeon's PA. It went very well and she was very happy about my recovery and released me. Just said it takes about 4 weeks to completely heal so not to lift over 30 lbs. After this I can do 40 then after the last week I can lift whatever. Like I do more than 30 lbs anyway. LOL!

She also said after a shower I can carefully pull the glue off if I want or snip off the loose edges, because the actual incisions are well healed and I can even put lotion on them for the itching. :) It was a great appointment! Friday I get the results of my lung scan.

Trading paint in a race is normal, but Logano is one who if you did that to him he would probably throw a swing at you after it was over. Him and Keslowski did that about 3 years ago. It's one of those things that I will do unto you before you do it unto me. Grr! That's the part that makes me so mad.

I didn't visit with dad today because of the appt, so we will now wait till Wednesday to go. I told him about it Friday. I also told him when it gets really cold and or snowy out we will only be coming 2 days a week for a while. Not that I don't want to see him, just to be honest, I get a little tired of running out there so much. I know I should be ashamed though.

Sorry you missed checking out the colleges, but still it's better safe than driving in a possible storm, you just never know.

I'm glad Papabear was working on the lights at least. Soon it will be finished and all better.

Great buy on the sheets! :) I've never heard of a super queen mattress before. We have a queen and most of the time we still get in each others way. LOL! Our room isn't big enough for a king along with the night stands. We make due. :)

Sorry the pix didn't come out well as an 8x10. It will be worth the extra $4 to make it just right though. :)

Good luck on your 90 day plan, I know you can do this! It may be hard with the holidays coming but you will be able to get though it!! I hope you beat the socks off Papabear with it!! Now go kick some rear! :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies and happy Monday?!!?

Susi... isn't today your eye exam appointment?!? If so, good luck! Be safe in that wind too!!! That's crazy! I think that is what we were supposed to get this weekend, but wasn't as bad as they predicted.

As for the race... rubbing is racing... but isn't fair!!! Sorry to hear about Truex. When we would cheer on my local guy, loved those years... miss them too, the retaliation was always good, but scary! Hope everyone stays safe, but I hope Truex gets him back!
emoticon

Hoping your visit to your dad's goes well today! Hoping for him in a good mood!!!

The death penalty, I agree with you ladies. As for my friend, I think she had to make peace with it. It *ucks how they went nice due to him being in the military and he has a son, but Ashley was in the military too and now has no change to have children to love. gggrrr... I could go on and on, but I'll take a page from my friend's book and trust in God he knows what he's doing with it all!!!

Congrats on cleaning!!! I know what you mean, it's weird to say you were happy you could clean, but I understand and happy for you! Glad you are doing so much better!!!

Lastly, I totally understand the whole going away for college and he's not thinking totally about the money factor, but I hope he comes around some. He can still get away from us and not be in a huge debt. With his job, he has so many options that are better... again, leaving it in God's hands!

Auntie Cyndie... where do I start?!!? hee hee Retirement?!! That's awesome!!! I'm so happy for you and Jimmy! Soon you'll be making bird friends too, like Greg!! hee hee Think of all those nice walks you TWO can go together!! I'm so happy for you both!

I hope your relaxing weekend was nice?!! Hope you had some quiet time to relax and enjoy time together, and then Sunday, enjoy "you" time!!!

Does your work know yet of your plans? I know my Dad, Godmother, and good friend waited to tell their employers. I hope all goes well with telling them. I know it's a good place you work at now, but you can still get together with the ladies for dinners... hee hee. What a great Christmas gift to yourselves!!! Happy for you!

Hope you have a good start to your week Auntie!

Our weekend was all messed up. We were supposed to go check out a college, 3 hours away, for LC, but we decided to cancel due to the weather. We would of been traveling through the storm most of the time. BUT here, the storm was NOT what they predicted, and we could of gone. GGGRRR!

Since that was not happening, Papabear was back up in the attic. He put in the pot lights in Older Cub's room, and one over the basement stairs. Moved more insulation, and just has LC room, our room, and now he wants to put some in the bathroom. THEN we will be done!

I ran errands of stuff he needed, but also went to get some new sheets for us! The bed we have, is a super queen, or something like that. Well you can't find sheets anywheres and now the Sleep Number people are stopping to make them and so they are with sheets too! You can still get some white ones, but for over 100 dollars! Crazy! So we just get regular king size ones. They are too big and a pain in the butt. BUT I can get them for 1/2 the price or cheaper!!!

I went to Kohls who was having a sale and I had a $10 and 20% off coupons. I found some kings marked down to $50... but if I sent $10 more dollars I could get some that are cooling sheets, so I got those!!! Here's the whole point of this... they have an elastic around the whole bedding, so they fit perfectly!!! I was SO happy!!! Now I just have to watch for more, because those were the only ones there! They had a queen and on king (which I took).
Sorry for the long explanation! emoticon

I printed out little cub's senior picture to put on my wall, but when I went to make it an 8x10, it cut a lot off, so it doesn't look right. I'm thinking I'll be spending $4 more again to redo it. He hasn't noticed it on the wall yet, and probably good! I'm not liking it, hee hee.

Thank-you for all your kind words about my pictures I took of LC. Really!!! emoticon

Yesterday Papabear and I started our 90 day whatever it's called... hee hee, challenge. We are really going to try and be good. For him it's food and exercise. For me, it's some snacking at night, and exercise! I do well with most of my foods, so that's a start! Just have to get to the gym! My plan is to go tonight, Tuesday, and Friday. Three times a week is my goal!

So my Mamabear Journey, has taken a turn, but it should be good! We can do this!!! emoticon

I guess I have babbled enough and should post the QOTD. I'll be back ladies!

Cyndie, I'm not far from it, Feb is my magic date. :) I'm thinking though if I can stretch it out I may wait another year I'll get a bit more that way. :) I'll see when the time gets here.

Truex would have won but... on the last lap he passed one of the young buttheads and he nudged Truex and made him wobble and he won, then Truex came in 3rd. GRRR! I was so mad and so was Truex. I look for retaliation coming up.

Truex raced him clean all the way through, coming up from last place all the way to 1st. There was a caution and he was 4 and worked his way back up. He wouldn't have done that to Lagano at the last minute, but of course Lagano will do what it takes to win. Many in the crowd booed Lagano when he won.

It was so windy last night I was nervous. :( Then it started raining hard and we ended up getting hail. I sure didn't like that at all. Looks a bit windy out yet this morning.

HUGS!

Susi, I guess you're still a baby! I was old enough for Social Security in June.

Congratulations on getting your cleaning done! I plan to clean tomorrow, while Jimmy is at work.

The race day menu sounds delicious. I hope that Truex did well!

It rained here all day. Jimmy and I enjoyed staying in.

I hope that you and Greg had a good weekend!

Hugs!

Not sure how the race will turn out. Truex didn't pass inspection so he had to start at the back. :( Last I saw though he was up to 12th. :) Hopefully he can keep going up.

I did my regular cleaning today for the first time in 2 weeks. :) I did pace myself but it sure felt good! Not that I like to clean but it was nice. I'm feeling great! :)

I hope you had a good day and was able to stay in.

Cyndie, I'm so happy for you and Jimmy that you will be retiring at the end of the year! That is so awesome! :) Greg loves retirement. :) Technically I'm retired, but legally I have to wait for the SS. :(

I think kielbasa and mac & cheese for the race today. I baked a white cake with white icing yesterday so that's dessert. :) My bad all the way around.

Susi, we are definitely Spark Sisters! Both of those dips sound yummy!

I do like Greg's way to use his vacation days.

I will be using one of my vacation days on November 8th. Jimmy and I will be going to the Social Security Office. We plan to retire at the end of the year. As you can imagine, we're very excited!

What about you and Greg? What's on the race day menu? Go, Truex!

Hugs!

Cyndie, I made the dip the other day. Greg doesn't eat much of it, so... Hehe! I don't make it that often but when I do..Yikes! I eat a lot of it. It's best with frito scoops, but is good with celery and carrots too. :) But for those I usually make another dip. That's a med. size tub of sour cream and a half pack of dry Italian dressing. It's best the next day. :)

Sorry you weren't able to walk to the bank yesterday. :( It was cloudy and rainy here all day too. Not sure what it'll be like today, didn't have the guts to check. LOL!

What Greg use to do when he only had a few vacation days left is take one each Friday he could get it someone else didn't have it or take a Monday off. :) That would give him some good 3 day weekends. :)

Hi Linda! It's great to see you on here! I agree with you, I think the photos Missy took look very professional!

Missy, I'm glad to hear that that kiddies were good for you today. I'm still impressed by those photos of Younger Cub! It's good that your friend gets the closure of the trial, but I wish the verdict was harsher!

Susi, I'm not offended by what you said about the death penalty. I agree with you! I'm glad that you were able to distract your dad today. I know I shouldn't, but I do plan to try your dip! I hope your appointments go well!

It wasn't a pretty day here, so I didn't walk to the bank. After our trip to Cincinnati last weekend, I think Jimmy and I will stay home this weekend. I have 5 vacation days left. I have to figure out how to use them!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, you can see the blades of grass in the picture. :)

I have reflux too, not constant but enough to be annoying. I started taking famotidine in the mornings and I seldom have the reflux now. It can be a real issue though and damage your esophagus if it gets too out of control.

I'm sure in his own way Papabear was trying to be helpful about the pictures, but... Yea it would have been nice if he would have mentioned a few he really liked too. I don't think YC has to fuss too much on his looks for the pictures, he always looks nice. :)

Yes, we visited with dad this morning. He wasn't really what I'd call grumpy but was complaining a lot about stuff that never happened. :( I would try to get him off the subject and he would go right back to it. :( I'm just happy he was complaining and not grouchy. No plans for the weekend. :)

It would be nice if YC went to the CC but I think some just need to feel independent for a while too. He probably sees how OC is doing being away and wants to do that too.

I hope I don't offend anyone, but I do believe in the death penalty. Murder no matter who it is the killer doesn't deserve to have a life either and we shouldn't have to pay for them to be in prison. I know it's the Lord's job to judge, but I also believe in and eye for an eye. I hope your friend can accept the decision and be okay with it though.

Hi Linda! As always it's good to see you stop in. How is the new furbaby doing?

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Good morning ladies... Happy Friday!!!

Auntie Cyndie... So happy you were able to go for a walk yesterday!!! Hoping today is just as nice so you can get that walk to the bank in! Enjoy the days while we can, right?!!

Thank-you for what you said about my pictures! The 2019 pic was fun to do. I saw one on pinterest (sp?) that they did, but it was a silhouette on the top of a hill...


I knew I wasn't going to be able to do that, but could do something like it?!! I took the picture with the thought of doing the numbers and went into Paint and added them in. Not sure if you can see it, but I added "grass blades" at the bottom of each number too, so they looked like they were there with him. It was fun! Thank-you!

So do you have more vacation time to take off Cyndie? Papabear normally took them for Little Cub's games, but some were at 6pm, so he didn't have to take a half day, which gave him more time. Hope you do and you have some fun time planned with them! Maybe a day with Kim?!!? Would she do that?

Hope you have a good Friday today Auntie! What are the plans for the weekend?

Susi... I hear you about the appointments to be done! I felt like all summer that is what I did! I was happy we got that all done. But now my regular doctor wants to start looking into my reflux issues since my period stuff, might me done?!! Good luck with your stuff! Praying Monday goes well for you! (hugs)

Yes, A & LMFP are my good children, so today should go pretty well... and so far, it is! Thank-you!

Papabear did say stuff about my pictures... "that one looks blurry", "Why is that dark", "Too bad he looks cold there". He feels it's helpful, but it would of been nice to hear "I love that one", etc. He did say he liked one, so I should be happy... As for Little cub, he hasn't see the finished products yet, but he was more focusing on how he looked, not the "pictures". I can understand that.

I'm gonna have to put chili on next weeks menu! (wink) Thanks ladies, hee hee.

Are you going to visit your dad today, or did you take this week off?!? If you do, I hope it's a good visit! Any plans for your weekend?

This weekend we are going to check out a college in MA for little cub. Hoping it's a good place, but I still think... by how he talks and his job choice... he could just go to the community college here for two years and save money or possibly get it paid for going to ME! I'm praying all works out...

Yesterday the jury came back with their verdict for my BFF's daughter that was killed on her job as a police officer. They were at a a deadlock that resulted in a sentence of life in prison without parole. I know my friend wasn't happy with that because she wanted him to be an example of what happens if you kill an officer. But after talking with her, I think she is in a better place. It has to be hard. My heart just breaks for her. Through out her life she has had to be so strong for so much... she is an amazing woman!!!

It has taken me over an hour to write this message, hee hee. I keep having to stop. I have to get to my job, but will come back later. Hope you all have a good day! It's Friday!!! WooHoo!!!

You're right Missy, itching means healing and even though it's making me nuts, I'm so glad it is! :) I have my follow up with the surgeon's PA on Monday. :) And I think my ear appt is on Nov. 2nd. I'll be glad when I get all this out of my way!

I'm glad B isn't there on Fridays for you. :) That has to be a good start to the weekend! Hopefully A and LMFP will both be good for you.

I can't believe Papabear didn't say much about the photos, they were wonderful! If either says they don't really like them much, I would tell them, fine, get professional ones done and it comes out of YOUR money. Hehe! As far as I'm concerned they do look professional. No, I'm not just saying that, I mean it from my heart!

Cyndie, my onion dip is so easy. :) 2 blocks of cream cheese, softened, 1/3 c. of minced onion and 1 c. of milk. Mix with mixer till it puffs up and thickens. :) I sure like it! :) I'm doing the chili soup for today. :) I have to have whole wheat ritz for it and I melt velveeta cheese in it too. I know, not good, but it sure tastes great! Greg doesn't like the cheese in his, so I just put it in my bowl.

I'm glad you got to walk yesterday and the fountain was still on. :) I sure hope you were able to walk to the bank today.

HUGS!

Susi, I'm so happy to hear that you're feeling better every day! I know I didn't get to read everything, did I miss your recipe for onion dip? I did follow your lead and make some chili. Yum!

Missy, as Susi said, Younger Cubs photos are awesome! How did you do the 2019? My job is like Papa Bear's, I have use my vacation time by the end of the year, or I lose it. TGIF equals no B!

When I went for my walk yesterday, I did get to go by the fountain. I was happy to see that it was still on. I don't know when they shut it down. We'll see if I get to walk to the bank tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a Happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Susi... glad you are healing and itchy!! (hee hee) That's a good sign (meaning it is healing, right?!). Hope it goes away soon though!

Enjoy your soups... and dip! Since I'm trying to be good starting Sunday, I'm enjoying the last of the ice cream I have, hee hee.

B might be spoiled due to being their first and only child, but it's because it's SO quiet at his house and the grandmothers... where he goes two days a week. So when he's here, I think it scares him. I just thought by now he would be used to it! gggrrr... Lets say today I was VERY happy to hand him over to his dad when he picked up!!! Tomorrow "should be" easy... just A and LMFP (B doesn't come Fridays and D is staying home with visiting family).

LMFP was fussy at nappy time. In the hour and half she normally sleeps, I think she slept for 20 minutes and broken up the whole time. I'm thinking it was teething. Well her brother is still sick... so could be that too, you never know. Anywho, hoping for a good Friday!!!

As for Papabear being home, it was fine he wasn't. LMFP probably would of cried, and all MY projects would of been too messy to do with the children here. I just wish he came home by 3-3:30pm so I could of enjoyed him too.

He took the day off because he has to use his time or he loses the days. So he was fine with taking it off if he helped his brother or not. It's just my FIL found out and asked for the help. So it was good for them both, but a bummer he couldn't of did something WE needed done (or purge his *rap in the basement... LMFP wouldn't of saw him down there, hee hee). I'm just happy he wanted to spend the day with his dad and not something stupid or wasting money, hee hee.

Thank-you for what you said about my pictures! I know they are not professional pics, but good enough for me, hee hee. Not quite sure how he feels about them... even Papabear really had nothing great to say, but what you said helped and my Mom text me saying my dad & her really liked them too, so that's awesome!

Thinking left over night... we have some in the fridge... I really have to learn to cook for less people, hee hee.

Hope you all had a good day! emoticon

Oh Missy, what WONDERFUL photos!!!!!!! I especially love the closer up of him sitting on the back of the open squad! The one where he is the 1 on 2019 is pretty awesome too! :) Of course they are all wonderful but those are my 2 most favorite. I love, love, love them! You did a great job and so did he posing! :) For the soccer pix, I love the one of him sitting on the steps. :)

I am feeling much better each day. :) My incisions are itching like crazy though. If I go anywhere I can't wait to get home, jeans and bra off. LOL! One incision is right at my belly button and another almost between the ladies right where my bra comes. The other 2 aren't bothered by clothes.

We went to the grocery this morning and got all stocked up. I got stuff for all the soups I mentioned. Hehe! Oh, and the dip and more fritos. :( Gotta have a little snack. :)

I sure hope B gets straightened out soon, not sure I would want to deal with him. :( Spoiled for sure!

I think it would have been nice if Papabear would have worked on the projects at home today since it turned out nothing else was on the agenda after all. It's nice though of him to help his dad. I think he should have talked to his brother about it before taking the day off though. Silly men!

HUGS!

Morning ladies!! Happy Thursday!

Auntie Cyndie... Happy you were able to go for a walk!!! I'm still hoping you can squeeze in a few more. It helps break up your day I'm sure!

I LOVE Last Man Standing!!! We loved it from day one and so happy FOX picked them back up! Stupid how they canceled it. I'm offended by SO much on other shows, but this one they cancel... stupid ABC... again, glad FOX picked them up!

Susi... your soup sounds good! As for the onion dip, I'm with you... if I make it, I'm eating it all! hee hee I only make it for parties, that way I won't eat it all MYSELF, hee hee. I think you shared your recipe with me in the past. I haven't made yours yet.

Hoping you have a relaxing day planned for yourself today! How are you feeling... better each day?!! Glad you are okay!!!

Hee hee... love how you passed TJ on to Kelly (having Kelly fill in TJ). Smart thinking!!!

So LMFP is here today, doing great as most days, but that mean B is going crazy! She's NOT even near him! It's crazy! I'm so happy he doesn't come Fridays!!!

Papabear took today off to help his brother make a patio, but his brother doesn't want to. So now Papabear is spending his day helping his dad. We went to Home Depot last night to get a few more pot lights. He says he's gonna finish putting them all in before the holidays. We'll see. My closet is still not done... just saying, hee hee.

I'm working on trying to post some pics of the senior pictures I took of Little Cub, but it's hard to pick a few... hee hee. Here are some...



















This is the paramedic/Fire Fighter who helped us... VERY nice guy!!!

Thanks for letting me share with you ladies. Have a good day... I'll be back later! Time to feed B and snackies to LMFP and A. TTFN...

Cyndie, I was glad she wasn't there. I told Kelly she could fill her in. Hehe!

I'm so glad you were able to get a walk in! :) Did you figure out a route to the bank that you could go past the fountain?

I love Last Man Standing! We've never seen Cool Kids, may have to check it out. :)

Susi, I do agree with you, it's getting to be soup weather. It's great that your dad's meeting went well. Since you're still recovering, I'm sure it was better for you not to have to deal with TJ. LOL

Missy, that was a great shopping trip that you and Papa Bear had. Hopefully you two will do well with your 90 Day Challenge. That was good news that the kiddoes were good for you today!

I had a good time watching The Cool Kids and Last Man Standing with my mom. Jimmy and I watch those. It got into the 50's here today and I was able to get a walk in. I agree with you two, it would be great to be a size 12.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, I use sliced taters, diced onions and celery, salt, pepper and make a cream sauce, thinner than a milk gravy, for the tater soup.

I'm so glad B did behave and things went well.

That's another thing I can't resist is dip and chips! I have a homemade french onion dip I make and could sit and eat the entire bowl by myself. 2 blocks of cream cheese, softened, 1 c. milk, 1/3 c of minced onion and mix with mixer several minutes till it's thicker and fluffy. :)

HUGS!

Susi... glad the meeting went well! Hope it all works out. On the part about TJ, I'm sure you were happy she didn't come. One less to "deal" with! hee hee

What is in tater soup? Guess potatoes, but what else? Is it like a corn chowder?!? I guess then it would be a chowder, not soup... duh Mamabear!!! sorry... hee hee

I had my soup for lunch, but did have some chips and dip for a little snack. I just can't throw away food, so eating what is in the house, but come Sunday, it better be all gone! ha ha

Haa haa... I didn't even notice B, A, D... hee hee... that's funny! B did get better. I would say this was one of his best days here so far! But I'm thinking it could of been because LMFP wasn't here. She does her screeching sounds... always happy... and he doesn't like them. His home life must be very quiet!!!

Hope the rest of your day was good Susi!
Hope you had a good day Auntie!
