Morning ladies and happy Friday!!!

Susi... what a great picture of your Daddy!!! I hope he had a wonderful time!!! I'm thinking today's visit with him, he'll be very tired. Hope it goes well and he's happy to share his fun day yesterday!!!

Hoping your tummy is okay?!!? I have no idea what or where your "solar plexis" is?!! It doesn't sound like fun! Hope it passes and you are okay!!! HUGS

Auntie Cyndie... don't give up yet?!!! We had days this week freezing and then one that got to 82!!! You never know these days, hee hee Hope you are still able to get a couple more walking days in there! (wink)

I did see here on SP that one lady posted, on our start page, that it was 5 degrees and she was still out walking!!! hee hee Don't you want to be like her?!!? hee hee

Susi... I was going to give you *rap for not doing anything yesterday, but since I was lazy too, who am I to (jokingly) bug you. You still did get in your steps, so that is awesome!!! Enjoy your lazy week. We all deserve days/weeks like that! I know you will be up and going again soon! Anywho, I would be tired just watching Greg and all he does each day! Someone has to rest or you two! hee hee

The game last night was canceled, and I was VERY happy about that! We were ready to go, but the other team canceled. They are over an hour away, so I'm sure with the night driving in the pouring rain was not what they wanted.

We had our haircuts and then picked up dinner (no, was not that great - healthy wise), and was eating at 8pm! That's late for us all. It was good... Asian food. I had rice and steak with veggies. Was full for the rest of the night, hee hee

It's not raining today, but looks like it did and looks gloomy. This weekend is Homecoming weekend, so big game tomorrow for little cub's soccer team. I also hoping for good weather so I can get out and take some senior pics with him! They decorate the stadium for seniors, and I took pics of Older Cub with all decorations, so hoping to do the same Sunday. We'll see... I don't mind an over cast day, but don't want rain and/or wind.

LMFP came in happy, but has had some fussy moments. I'm thinking teething and she has a rash. Her Mom actually remembered to bring more diapers and some cream for her bum!! Hoping that helps her with her fussiness! The pother two are being good, so should be a good day! Wishing the same for you all!!!

Mamabear's Journey...
Exercise: get my steps in... be like Susi!!!

Grateful: For my hair... hee hee. I got my hair trimmed and highlights in... loving my hair again! Needed some love!

Getting it done: Have to call the insurance for Older Cub's surgery. I remembered last night that we were trying to get it in for THIS year due to all the money we have dished out so far, and they made it for January 2nd, 2019... gggrrr. If the surgery is next year, why did I have to pay his remainder of his... whatever it's called...??? I hate insurance!!!

Hope you ladies have a good day! I'll check in later.

We stayed in the 60's yesterday, but..... they did get to go to the fair. They were bundled up quite well. I had a pix, but now I can't find it. It only shows a file and not the pix, I'll have to try again. :(

I was only up for an hour in the night. My tummy was bothering me in between my belly button and my solar plexis. No clue what that is. :(

HUGS!

Hi Gal Pals!

I'm running late getting on here!

Missy, I'm with you, I feel sorry for YC's friend's parents! Thank God YC knows better!

Susi, we wouldn't want your dad to go to the fair if conditions aren't safe. Let us know!

We never got out of the 40's today. I guess walking to the bank season is over, sadly.

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, it did stop raining but I haven't seen online if they went or not. :( It stayed really cloudy, chilly and a bit windy. I'm sure they wouldn't want anyone to get sick and elderly are vulnerable to that. :( Maybe they'll go tomorrow if they didn't today.

Our date went okay, just glad it's over. LOL! Of course he worked outside. I think I got lazy this week cause I didn't do anything today. I got my steps in but that was all. My bad!!

I bet Frosty loved "going to work" with you today. :)

I really hate you're having trouble sleeping. :( If anyone knows how hard that is on a person it's me.

YIKES! Oh that young man got bit by a huge scam! His parents will be furious! I sure know I would!!!! I'm so happy that YC knew better. Oh my what a mess! :( He will have to go to the SS office and tell them and they will issue him a new number. If he doesn't they can and probably will take over his identity. I would think by their age, that boy would have known better.

HUGS!

Morning ladies...

Auntie Cyndie... it's raining here today, so I'm hoping that means you have sunshine or at least DRY weather!!! Have a nice walk for me too, if you can! Good luck!

Susi... hoping your rain stops so your Dad can enjoy his fair day!!! Hope he has a great time! That means Friday has to be a good visit with him... here's hoping!

Have fun on your "date". While Greg is outside enjoying his day, what do you have planned? Maybe another TB day?!! Enjoy whatever you do!!!

Specking of TB... I saw on FB that Melissa posted yesterday was take your teddy bear to work day! Since I work from home, they ARE always with me!! BUT to make up for the day, I'm gonna keep Frosty with me today (wink).

So last night I did not sleep. Got like 4 hours sleep. I feel like Susi!!! I have noticed when I'm getting due for my TOM, I get like this and my whole body feels like it's working over time! Like all my nerves are going crazy! Makes it SO hard to sleep!

I will say my TOM seems SO much better, for the actual "period" time! Cramps are more, but it's not like I'm not used to them. The flow is SO much better, so I'm NOT complaining!!!

Last night Lille Cub came to us asking if Apple would even ask for all your info... SS, Licence #, picture of you, picture of your debit card. I almost freaked and said NO!!! LC assured me he was good, but a friend of his did that all! GAVE ALL THEIR INFO to these people saying they are from Apple!

LC was asking me what should they do?!!? I said tell their Mom and Dad, call the police, close their bank card!!! I just don't know what happens with the SS #. That is SO not good. I of course used this as a learning tool, but I feel so bad for those parents. This child gave EVERYTHING that is important!!! So scary.

Okay, well I hope you all have a good day. Full of walks, Dad's going to fairs, and sleep... oh, that is for me, hee hee.

Mamabear's Journey...
Exercise: today I'm just gonna try to stay awake!

Grateful: That LC knew what his friend did (giving all that info out) was wrong! And if he was even in that situation, to come to us first!!!

Things to do today: SLEEP!!! hee hee

I'll be back later ladies. emoticon

Missy, she must feed him right before she brings him over. Either that or she just doesn't want to change him. I do remember the days of the big messes like that. :(

I'm sorry to hear YC was acting up. I hope he straightens up now. Kids! I do love that OC seems to know just the right time to message you though. :)

I did enjoy my TB yesterday. :) This morning we have our hot date for the grocery then I'm sure we all know where Greg will be. LOL!

Cyndie, it was raining earlier but stopped. I hope it isn't raining when they go to the fair today.

I hope today is one you can take your walk on.

HUGS!

Susi, thanks for posting the link about Spark Guy. As for your dad, I guess he's a "good news, bad news" kind of guy! I hope he has a great time at the fair!

Missy, that's great news about Younger Cub's soccer team! I'm sorry to hear that he didn't get to play. I'm also sorry to hear about your TOM. Feel better!

I do agree with you ladies, I miss Melissa! I guess we have to carry on as the Three Musketeers until she re-joins us!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Thanks Susi for posting the link, I'll check it out later.

It's 82 here today and I'm REALLY hot. Papabear decided to take the AC's out a while ago, so I'm not happy, hee hee.

Had a bad day... three out of 4 babies were good, so I shouldn't complain, but I'm so sick of B!! She brought him with a poop and he hates being changed by me in the AM hours, so it was a bad start to the day with him. It got all over his pants too, so had to do a full change.

The rest of the children were over all good, so I guess it could of been worst.

But now I have TB today!!! hee hee. I'm crampy, hot, and a headache! And annoyed with little cub. I love being a Mommy, but today I'm tired of it... at least with him! OC texted me this afternoon and said "Hey Momma hope you are having a good day, I miss you!" I love those text and he always sends them when I need them!

Hope you all are having a good day. At least the sun is out and I'm hot, not knee deep in snow! (Counting my blessings!)

Susi, hope you enjoyed your TB day!! emoticon

Missy, he is looking forward to going to the fair tomorrow, but he still had off and on grumpies today.

Of course Greg was outside today. We did get rain but it just started about a half hour ago and it didn't last long. It's cool out now with a nice breeze. I had TB today, tired butt. LOL!

Congratulations to the winning team! I'm really sorry though that YC didn't play. :( I'm glad he has such good friends to hang around with. :)

I hope you're feeling better today.

Morning ladies! Thank-you to all who take time to pray for our family and friends in need tonight!!! God bless you all!

Auntie Cyndie... sorry to read you got hit with a busy day yesterday! I was hoping Susi would of been wrong. Now rain today, so no walking break. (Sad face) Hoping your day goes better and the rain stops enough for you to get out and get some fresh air!!! I can hope, you never know... (wink)!

Susi... hoping all goes well with Greg's results! Keep us posted!
Hoping your visit with your Dad goes well today! I prayed the "grumpy monster" left and was replaced with all smiles and fun!! He must be excited to go to the fair tomorrow, right?!! Hoping that helps you some!

What other plans do you have for today. Relaxing, anything fun?!? We know what Greg will be doing! Or do you have the rain too today?!?

The game was AWESOME!!! One of the best I've seen this year! Sadly, Little Cub played NONE of it... gggrrr! They won 3 to 2 in over time! This team was undefeated, so that was awesome!!! Great win! Thanks for asking Susi!

Sadly I think you are right, Melissa has moved on. I just hope she is okay, Anthony too! God bless them both!

Mamabear's Journey...
Exercise: Well if I'm honest, I did not do any of my exercises like I planned. Sorry Susi, hee hee. My tummy was really hurting. Still trying to figure out my TOM and I think the week before I "go" I have bad cramps... yesterday was a day. I should of still tried, maybe it would of helped, but I was naughty. Today is a new day, so I shall try again... I got this...

Grateful: For Little Cub who has good friends. Even though he might not of played in the game, they all still came down to watch and cheer the team on. After the game, they took him out... to McDonalds... but still to be there for him. So glad he has those good friends!

Being Productive: Make Little Cub's appointment for his removal of his wisdom teeth. I'm waiting on him to talk to his teacher, but either way, I'm calling today!

Hope you all have a good, and Blessed, day!
TTFN...

Missy, how did the game go? I was rooting for them! I hope YC got to play.

Sending a thank you is a lost art now days, so even though it was a text it makes me feel extra good about YC's girl. :)

I hope your parents will be okay with that storm. I will be praying for them.

I don't like saying this but I think Melissa just gave up on us. It makes me sad, but we can't force her to come here. :(

Cyndie, Greg has an appointment coming up and he'll get the results then. I can't remember when it is though, I'm thinking maybe the 23 rd or close to that.

I hate that you got stormed in with the mail yesterday. I do hope today is better. We're supposed to get some rain here today.

Missy, I am so sorry to hear about Papa Bear's old boss. As you know, I try to keep up with some of my ex-co-workers, but sometimes, the connections fade.

Susi, what a great story about your dad. You've always told us he's a stinker! You're such a sweetie to go with Greg to his appointment. When does he get his results?

I'm sorry to say, your hunches were correct, the office got hammered with mail today. I wasn't able to get out for a walk. Too bad it's supposed to rain here tomorrow.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Hello Susi... Glad Greg had another nice day out, hee hee. Hope he had fun playing with Ralph, Alice, and his squirrelie friends! hee hee. Oh day has been nice to. A perfect day actually. Not too hot, sun is out, little breeze. I'm enjoying it while I can! Perfect night for a soccer game! This is one of the best teams around us... so it's an important team to win today! We are right up there with them, but they have gone all the way and won... we fall short by that one! I so hoping they win today... would LOVE LC playing and score too, but since they are so tough, we'll have to be way a head, I think, for the coach to put LC out. Hoping and praying!!!

Glad you were able to get your dad happy for a little bit. Hoping he's in a better mood tomorrow for you!

It was very nice of LC's girl friend to invite us. I think because I invited them to the fair and it didn't work out... due to them working... she thought of this. She also sent me a "thank-you" text for letting her sleep over and for dinner. I thought it was sweet.

Heard from my Mom today. They are in Michael's path I guess, so they are expecting winds, rains, and possible flooding. I'm hoping they are okay! Hoping everyone is okay!!!

I have that lingering tickle cough, but I am better. Thank you Susi for asking!
I will get to my planking, promise!!! (gee you are tough!)

Hope you have a nice rest of your afternoon!

Auntie Cyndie, hope you had a good day... and maybe a walk to the fountain?!!?

Oh, I saw on FB that Melissa went roller skating!! I'm happy to see she is having fun. I'm thinking her computer is better, but maybe not working with SP... or she just gave up on us. (sad face) I guess as long as she is happy and okay?!!?? Miss her!!!

Hugs ladies!!! emoticon

Missy, nothing to be sorry about! I just forgot it was Columbus day when I was doing the post and I do know when there is a holiday and the kids are out of school you may not be here. :) I just had a senior moment.

Yesterday dad was back to his grouchy self. I flat out told him that every Monday he is so grouchy. He squished his face up, put up his fists, and starting laughing like crazy. I guess he wanted to put me back in a good mood. :) Still he was grumpy.

It was a pretty nice day here today. There was a nice breeze and the sun is now down far enough that the back yard stays shady longer. :) Of course Greg has been out there all day again.

I went with him for his blood work this morning cause he hates using the check in screen. LOL! So he had to go to McDonald's for breakfast after that. :( I'm still full. I didn't eat that much but I guess it was what I did eat that boated me so much. I know better. *sigh*

I'm sure as time goes on YC will get to play more. :) It sure would be nice if he could now though.That was so sweet of his girl to invite you apple picking. :)

That is so nice of you when you let the guys girls stay over like that. I sure know you wouldn't do it if you or Papabear wouldn't be up to keep an eye on them.

I love puzzles, but no way could I work on one that long of a time! My eyes would be bugged out and my back would really be hurting.

I'm so glad you had a wonderful evening with your friends and YC and his girl came back early to enjoy it too. :)

Are you feeling better from that cold? If so....GET to that Planking! Hehe! Even 30 sec or 1 minute is good. :)

Not a thing wrong with alway being grateful for your family. :) I'm so sorry to hear about Papabear's ex-boss passing away, and his family and friends are in my prayers.

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Morning ladies!
Yes, so sorry... I had yesterday off! Papabear didn't have it off, but took it off last minute, so it was nice to spend a lazy day with him!

Susi... so glad your dad had a good Friday! Like Cyndie said, nice way to start your weekend! Hope it continued into Monday's visit!!!

Glad your weather didn't get too bad that you had to put your AC back on. Today is going to be a hot one for us... close to 80! I'm NOT complaining!!! But hoping, like you fans were good enough, that mine are too... because Papabear took our AC out!

Glad your Dad is going to the fair Thursday! Hope he has a good time!!! Maybe that will keep his mood good this week! Hoping!

Meatloaf... YUCK!! hee hee... NOT my favorite for sure!!! It was my Dad and sisters, and from what I heard, my Mom made a good meatloaf, but that was one meal my Mom did NOT make me have to eat!! Glad Greg enjoyed it!!!

Sorry to hear about Truex. Hoping the next race he can move himself up in the race and points!

Lastly, the rain is like Mother Nature's way of MAKING Greg take a break, hee hee. Glad you got to spend some time with him!!!

Auntie Cyndie... I feel so bad for you. Switching banks would be SO hard for me!!! I have been going to this bank for ever! It was my parents and now mine... my family's!!! Hoping your new bank ends up being good... the bank, and tellers!

It is nice you can still walk to it on good Fridays. Hoping you can find a nice walking path! Speaking of walking, hope you were able yesterday and today to get a walking break in there!!! Like Susi said, hope with no mail yesterday it didn't cause today to be crazy!

Hope you and Jimmy had a good weekend?!! Anything else you did other than your food shopping date?!? hee hee

We had a good weekend. Friday was Little Cub's soccer game. Another win! He did get to play at the end, but I wish he was able to get more plan time!!! I miss seeing HIM be the one to score!!! Oh well...

Saturday LC's girlfriend asked us if we wanted to go Apple Picking with them! I was very happy she asked! It was nice!!! I got some pics, I'll have to post them when I get them off my camera.

Sunday was food shopping, cleaning the house, church. It did rain off and on. We were having friends over Monday, so I did my GOOD cleaning, hee hee.

Since LC and his girlfriend made plans to go up north for the day, she was going to sleep over. Then I remembered he had practice in the AM hours. They ended up asking if she could still sleep over... it was okay with her Mom... so we said okay. I said when I went to bed at 12 midnight, they had to also!!!

Well at 9pm, we decided to watch a movie and Papabear started a 1000 piece puzzle. After the movie was done, and he was still enjoying his puzzle, I watched some HGTV, but at 1am, I called it for me and the children. Made sure they went to bed. I felt better sleeping knowing Papabear was still up to keep an eye too, but I didn't realize he was going to stay up to almost 4am to finish his puzzle. Hee hee.

I happened to wake up just as he was putting in the last like 10 pieces. Waited, took pictures, and went back to bed!!! hee hee Crazy guy! He was happy... took him 7 hours to make his 1000 piece puzzle.

Monday was finish prepping the food, hanging with Papabear, and getting ready for our friends to come over for dinner! Papabear made his Ribs, and I made beef kabobs. They brought sides and dessert. It was a great evening! I asked LC and his girlfriend to be back home in time to hang with us all. It really was a great evening!!!

Mamabear's Journey...
Exercise: Doing my normal. I'll try to add more, like my planking!!! Hoping to get that in today!!!

Grateful: Hate to repeat, but I'm going with my family. We found out some very sad news yesterday... Papabear's old boss, and an old friend, passed away unexpectedly. He was our age!!! Just so scary!!! I haven't heard what happened yet. But he was Papabear's old boss and we all became friends. We'd get together so our children would play together. Honestly, she was kind of a witch with a B, but I would never wish anything like this on her!! We ended up going different ways, when he left working where Papabear does. Papabear and him would still get together for a few years after going golfing or to a bar for drinks, but it fizzled out sadly. My heart just breaks for her!!! I feel so bad!!!

Being Productive: Let's see... I just don't feel it today. That's bad!!! I guess I'll put my productiveness to getting my exercises in for today, hee hee.

Have a good day, ladies! emoticon emoticon

Cyndie, since there was no mail yesterday, I sure hope you don't get bogged down with it today.

Actually, with the ceiling fan on and a box fan on in the bedroom it is comfortable in there. I didn't look yet to see what it will be today.

Susi, you are a great personal trainer! I will try to work out a route to my new bank so I can go by the fountain and increase my step count!

I hope that you and your family are staying safe in that October humidity!

The receptionist was out today, as her hubby had cataract surgery. There was no mail today, so that was a plus!

Wishing everyone a happy Columbus Day!.

Hugs!

Missy, is everything okay?

Dad was full of his grumpies again today. He will go to the fair with the group on Thursday. It got hot and humid today at 88.

HUGS!

LOL! I just remembered this was Columbus day and Missy was probably with YC. LOL!

Cyndie, Truex came in 15th and got bumped down to 4th in the playoffs. He started 3rd but others wrecking kept putting him behind. I guess it's okay though, a young guy won and it's only his 2nd win so he needed it. :) Of course I would rather Truex win.

I hope you can find a route to take to go by the fountain when you go to the bank. I know you will figure out how to get those extra steps in. :)

HUGS!

Susi, thank you for the update on Spark Guy!

As for the bank, I might try a route where I can go by the fountain.

The race day menu sounds yummy. I haven't made meatloaf in a while. I should do that!

Go Truex!

Enjoy the last of your weekend!

Hugs!

So far Truex is in 3rd, but the race isn't over yet.

Greg pigged out on the meatloaf. LOL! I had Bush's baked beans with it and made that chocolate chip twist dessert. It's the length of an 8" loaf pan and he ate his entire half of it. I could only eat 1/4 of mine and I'm so full.

It got hot and humid this afternoon. Haven't turned the ac on yet, I'm hoping it will cool down soon.

HUGS!

Update from Spark Guy..... Saturday, October 06, 2018
Hi all My surgery was a success! It took 5.5 hours to remove the tumor from my head. I found out today that it was benign so all is well. I can go home tomorrow. Thanks a bunch for all of your thoughts and prayers! I think my brain works better now :). This thing was about the size of a golf ball. Have a good weekend!

Cyndie, would you have time to walk around the fountain on the way to the bank? Or maybe go down a street and back. :) Just a thought.

Greg wants meatloaf for the race today. I have my cleaning then other than cooking the day is mine. :)

HUGS!

Susi, a jammie day sounds wonderful! Rain is definitely the perfect weather for staying in! Even Greg should agree with that!

I will miss the longer walk to the bank. It helped me get my step count up. You're right, the tellers at my new bank and I will get to know each other.

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

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie, I guess all men are like that. :( I get annoyed with Greg when he does that. Not that I'm upset he's sick, that happens, it's the way he acts when he is. I bite my tongue and try not to complain and he is on his death bed from a stopped up nose. Yep, it's a man thing. *sigh* We so love them to the moon and back anyway. :)

It's hard to switch banks like that unless you get mad at them for something. I'm sorry you had to do that. At least you can still walk there though when the weather is good. I know you will get to know the tellers pretty fast. :)

HUGS!

Susi, I'm so happy to hear that you had a good day with your dad today. An awesome start to your weekend! As for Jimmy, I love him, but I'm sorry to say, he's a big baby when he's sick!

Missy, great news that you were feeling better! Can you believe, we went out for Asian food, too? I had Hibachi shrimp. It's awesome that you've researched super foods. Be sure to feed some to Papa Bear!

We have moved to our new bank. It was sad closing the accounts. I'll miss the tellers. I put my check in the new bank today. The walk isn't as far as the old bank and of course I don't know the tellers yet!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, that is nice that your neighbor is helping out with the assisted living home. :) That would be a fun job, and getting paid is a plus. :) Yes, I did post a pix of dad last year. He said today they asked if he wanted to go out soon, and he said sure. The fair dates they have start next Wednesday. Sounds like he'll go. :)

Thank you for understanding my worry about the hearing problems. Seems like my whole right side is giving up, my hand, my knee, my should and now the ear. *sigh*

I'm glad you were feeling better so you could go to dinner. :) I hope you still are. I'm not afraid of being around someone with a cold either just so they cover when they cough or sneeze. Hehe! I'm glad you had a good time. :)

Sorry Papabear is getting it back again. I sure hope he doesn't give it to you worse. It never ceases to amaze me how men can be so manly until they don't feel too well, even if it's just a little.

Good journey goals! :)

Cyndie, does Jimmy do that when he's not feeling too good? Just curious. :)

Dad was in a good mood today. :) He grouched NOT ONCE! I so love days like that with him! :)

HUGS!

Morning ladies...

Susi... I remember when they brought your dad to the fair last time. I think you posted an picture. I do hope he can go, and it they do have a charger they can use in the van, that would be great... no reason for him NOT to go!

Not sure if I mentioned this already, but my neighbor has a part time job, and wanted to do something during her down time, so she went to one of the assisted living facility close by and asked about volunteering. They told her they would pay her for her time. So now when they bring the people to places... like the fair... she goes to help them out. She loves it. She goes to place around our state, and is helping the elderly. She's perfect for the job too!

Susi, I can totally understand why it's hard to be told you may need help with your hearing. Know we are here to listen when you need to unload, etc. HUGS!

Auntie Cyndie... So happy your Thursday was a better day! I'm sure getting out for that walk helped!!! Then out to dinner with friends... always good!!! Glad you had a good day!! I hope today is a good Friday and you get your walk to the bank in too!

I did go out to dinner with my girlfriends too. I was feeling better, no fever, and could feel me feeling better! I was able to open some windows and I think that helped! I did ask them if they were okay with me going, having the cold, and they were fine with it, so I went.

We normally do Italian (the Olive Garden), but one wanted to try something different, so we went to a Chinese-Japanese place. It was good. Since I ate pretty well all day, I was okay there. I had Cashew Chicken with brown rice. Ate only half of it and three glasses of water (wink). I was happy with me. But of course now I have lunch for today... oh no... but yum!!! hee hee

I saw that when you are sick it's good to have grapefruit, so on the way home stopped at the store and picked up some. I didn't know Grapefruit was a super food, hee hee. Carrots too are good for when you are sick. So I'm going to snack on those!!! I'm done with being sick!!!

This morning Papabear was walking around like he was dying again. I asked if he was okay, and he said he can feel it coming back... ggggrrr... He has a half day today, so hoping he can rest and be better!! I'm cleaning my whole house tonight or tomorrow and I want this sickness gone!!!

Mamabear's Journey...
Exercise - I'm just sticking with my arms again today. But this weekend starts my 5% challenge here on SP, so excised to do a great job this time and see results!!!

Grateful - Grateful for my family!!! I have been having little moments with talking to Older Cub, or here and there with Little Cub. Monday we are having our friends over and They have one daughter, a year younger then LC, and she'll be coming so I asked LC and his girlfriend to come too! So we'll all do dinner, then the children usually hang in a room together and us adults talk. Though we have played games too all together, so you never know. But I'm excited for that and being all together! So thankful for family and friends!

Being Productive - I'll start cleaning the house!!! I'm feeling better, so might as well start. I'll have to do it between my job, hee hee, but even if I clean the bathroom that is a plus!!! hee hee.

Hope you ladies have a good day! I'll check in later! Susi, hope you have a good visit with your Dad today!

Cyndie, I'm so glad yesterday was so much better at work for you! And really happy you got your walk and went to dinner with your co-workers. :)

The oxygenator also has a car charger but I didn't take that out. I may ask Rochelle the next time I see her if the home van has a place to plug it in and if it does, I will. I think that would be really handy too. :)

Missy, I hope you're feeling better this morning.

Susi, I think it would be great if the home would take your dad to the county fair. I think that oxygenator is going to be a real asset for your dad! As for you, I'm glad that you had the day to yourself. That's always nice!

Missy, I'm sorry that you're under the weather. I hope that you feel better soon. As Susi said, rest up! Like you, I don't want to wish my life away, but sometimes I want to skip ahead to, "the good parts"!

Today was much better than yesterday. I was able to get out for a walking break today, so that was great! Then tonight, my co-workers and I went out to dinner. We went to an Asian restaurant. It was wonderful!

Wishing everyone a happy Friday Eve!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, it's not really good to exercise too much when you are sick. I have to say a fever qualifies you as being sick. It would be a good idea to stay in tonight.

They do take small groups each day when the fair is here. Dad did go last year, so hopefully he will again this year. He enjoyed it. They take the residents out as much as they can at least once or twice a month to give them something to do. They don't always take them all though, it depends on where they are going. Far trips like the zoo, they can't take anyone on oxygen.

Yes, I do want to enjoy life by hearing, I'm just having some trouble wrapping my head around the fact it's me who is having the trouble. I'll get use to it though. :)

I hope the kiddos calmed down and you had a good day. Greg worked outside, so I had a me day. :)

I'm glad Papabear finally jumped in to clean up the kitchen. He may have just been waiting till the last minute anyway. :) Greg does that for me. There are times when we don't have many dishes and I put them in the sink with water and soap and let them till morning. When I get up the dish fairy had been here and did them all and put them away. :)

I do hope you feel better soon.

HUGS!

Morning Ladies...

Like Cyndie I'm happy we are on the downhill part of the week. I don't like to wish my days away, but this head cold is getting to me. Last night I was running a little fever... I was freezing and I was bundled up!

I'm supposed to go out with my two girlfriends tonight. I just don't know what to do. I want to really go, but if my evening is like it was last night, thinking that wouldn't be smart. I also don't want to pass it to anyone. I'm usually very healthy, so don't know what is up with me this year!!! GGGRRR...

One day off for family... when you lose a Dad... that seems wrong!!! I think where I worked last, they did three days. I did lose my grandmother then, and I took a week off. They were good about that. Though they were the ones I was with with my cubs being born... got two weeks for that!!! That's wrong!

Susi... I do hope they bring your Dad, and others, to the fair! It's such a great thing for them to get out and enjoy life! Hoping he goes!!

Praying whatever is best for you, happens, with your hearing. Like Cyndie said, you do want to hear people and enjoy life, right?!!

Auntie Cyndie... sorry it was a hard day yesterday!!! Hoping today is better and you get out for a walk to break it up some!! Good luck!

Praying for a good day with the kidos today... LMFP came in with a poo poo, the baby D, came in crying, and actually so did A, because his dad is teaching him to walk in by himself (not being carried) and he saw LC's soccer balls outside and took a fit coming in. B, is actually doing better than usual, so there is hope!!!

We ALL will have a good day!!! hee hee

MamaBear's Journey...
Exercise: Just do my arm stuff. Yesterday I never got to the planking. Just feeling a little under the weather isn't helping. But I'll still try my arm stuff!

Grateful: for Papabear. Last night I was not up to cleaning up the kitchen, so Papabear said he would. Before going to bed, I saw the kitchen was still a mess and he did nothing. Now that I have an early drop off for a child, it's hard to clean it up before, so I started to do it before going to bed. Papabear stopped me and said to go to bed, he would do it. It was nice to get up this morning and it all clean!

Get done today: I'm gonna just focus on my job today and get that done! That will be enough! I'm exhausted and the day just started!!!

Thank-you ladies.
Have a wonderful start to your Thursday!!!

Cyndie, I know Greg will be thrilled when I can hear better. He keeps saying I don't know for positive yet if I have to get them. I think he's just trying to comfort me. :)

Our county fair will be starting next week and maybe they'll take dad again. I know they have plugs there that they can charge his oxygenator. He would love to go again this year. :) Greg and I don't go anymore unless there is something really special we want to see.

I do hope work is so much easier today. It's a shame your coworker couldn't have more time off with pay, but good for you. At Anchor it was like, spouse, parent and child, 5 days. Sibling was 3 days, inlaws 3 days and Aunts and Uncles one day. Confusing but good.

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that you might need a hearing aid. On the other hand, it's good to get the help that you need. Being able to hear selectively sounds like a real benefit. LOL I'm glad that things are going well with your dad and his oxygenator.

Missy, I forgot to answer your question yesterday about my co-worker. She seems fair. We only get one paid day for bereavement, so it's hard! That's too bad about B. I do hope he gets over that!

Speaking of hard, today was a hard day at work. The hump in hump day was pretty high. I'm glad that the week is downhill from here!

Hugs!

Thank you Missy, I did need that. :) This and my other team are the only ones I've told about this problem so I need all the feedback I can get. One gal said she's had them since her mid 40's and if she doesn't want hear something she just turns them off. Maybe that's the good side of it. LOL!

I hate that YC is only pretty much focusing on his girl right now. Why oh why can't they learn from our experiences??? :( They need a good job or career to support a family in the first place.

You know I'll be staying here! If I don't post for a week, then you will know something bad is happening. :) That is unless I warn you ahead of time. :)

I sure hope Mr. B settled down for you today. Yep, just let him cry! Good goals for today. But sorry about having to spend more at the doc's for OC. :(

Dad is doing good with his oxygenator. :) He was grumping about holding it so they decided to put it on his wheelchair handles. I guess that's okay as long as they plug it in to charge for him because he can't reach it back there.

He did say he stayed downstairs longer yesterday with it and he's liking it. :) In the morning they have their volleyball finale and he even said he would probably go to it. :)

Morning ladies! Happy Wednesday!

Susi... I'm so sorry about your news! But know you are NOT old!!! It sucks, I agree, but you are not old. I was actually noticing the family in front of us at church this past Sunday, and they had 5 children (not that matters in this, hee hee) but he had a hearing aid. I would guess he was late 30's early 40's. I'm sure that doesn't help in anyway, but a reminder that ALL ages need them, and you are still VERY active and young! I'll stop... HUGS

The thing about Younger Cub, Susi, is he is NOT going to talk to them. He's a "last minute" child and doesn't see it as important right now, but it sort of is. It's hard when everyone around us is talking about their child's futures, and my child is worrying about what he can do with this girlfriend next. Even soccer, which he loves, gets pushed a side. I will say, if they played him more at games, he would be all over it, but since they doesn't his attitude is "whatever". Anywho...

The whole time Melissa has been posting on FB, I figured it was because she can do that on her phone, but SP is harder for her. Miss her. Thank-you ladies for not leaving!

As for yesterday, I did not do my planking, but did the other stuff. My head cold is getting worst and I just had (still do) a bad headache.

I did get some MOMS Ministry stuff done too, so that was good!

Mamabear's Journey....
Exercise: My arm exercises, and try again with planking

Grateful: Today I'm grateful for Papabear. Little Cub has to go for a consultation for his wisdom teeth. I was supposed to go, but the new baby is being picked up late, so he'll have to leave work early and meet LC.

Get done today: Book Older Cub's surgery for around Christmas! We found out we had to pay, our part, up front before they would even book the surgery. GGGRRR... so over a thousand dollars added to our growing doctor bills!

Today will be a good day, today will be a good day, today will be a good day!!! B is already driving me crazy!!! I had three here, happy, playing nicely, great start to my day! He comes and it all goes to *ell! What I can see, he does NOT like LMFP. I'm just very happy him crying no longer bugs her, and she stays happy! He needs to get used to her, so I shall let him cry as she plays around him... Today WILL be a good day!

Hoping the same for you all too! (Susi has a good day, Cyndie gets her walking break in, Melissa pops in here) HUGS

Up in the night with too much on my mind. :( My appointment was a 6 month check up.

Well, for a good while now Greg has been getting annoyed with me cause I have to say what so much when he talks to me. To be fair, a lot of the times he talks, he's either leaving the room, has his back to me or a damn cigar in his mouth.

I've been to ENT's, 3 to be exact, and they tell me it was because of sinus pressure. Well, I talked to the doc about it and he did a quick ear test there, nothing clogging it but I'm not hearing much from my right ear. :(

So now I have to go to the hospital to have a professional hearing test done. He said those places that only do that and sell hearing aides are in the business of selling the hearing aides, so it probably wouldn't come out right. Now I may have to end up getting a hearing aide for at least my right ear. :(*

Yes, bad hearing runs in my mom's side of the family, but crap, I didn't think it would hit me at 61 years old. :( Now I feel like I'm 91 years old and a bit on the depressed side about it. :( Yes, please, I would like a little cheese with that whine.

Missy, you're welcome for the explanation. I'm glad they cancelled the game because of the possible storms.

I guess YC is growing up too fast like most do. :( He wants to start being independant and handling the talking with the paramedics on his own. That's good and sad both.

Melissa's pc must be okay again. I've been noticing she's doing her blog and posting on facebook.

I like your new Mamabear's journey. :) Did you get them accomplished yesterday? Just remember to not be hard on yourself if you don't. :) They were good goals! :)

I hope today is better with the kiddos.

Cyndie, that construction closed down one side of the road going out of town and a LOT of people use it when they get off work. Traffic was really backed up as far as we could see. There were about 25 cars in our parking lot waiting to get out too. They were doing fairly good about letting every other one out, but it really took time.

I hate you didn't get a walk in, hopefully you will today. We'll keep our fingers crossed on that for you! :) At least you got to catch up on your show while you were walking the treadmill. :)

HUGS!

Susi, we're happy that you were able to come on to tell us that you had a doctor's appointment. That's too bad about the construction, though. We hope that all went well at the doctor's!

Missy, that's good news that you didn't have to sit out in the rain to watch YC play soccer. That definitely wouldn't be for me! I think your plan for B is good. We look forward to the continuation of your journey!

Unfortunately, it did rain here today. Therefore, I had to go to my backup plan of watching GH and doing the treadmill. I was happy to watch GH, after it was pre-empted on Monday.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Sorry you had traffic and a late doctor, but hope your appointment went well?!! What was it for again?

Thank-you for explaining the roval... makes sense.

Hope you enjoy you dinner. Little Cub's game was postponed for next Thursday, so we don't have to watch the game in the rain! I guess there is talk of thunderstorms, so they didn't want to take any chances. I'm fine with that!

Have a good evening ladies!

I forgot to tell you I had a doc's check up at 3:30 today, he was running 45 minutes late. We got there okay but there was construction on the road it's on and it took about 25 minutes just getting out of the parking lot. :(

The roval, it was an oval at that track, they redid it and made it more like a road course with ins and outs and arounds in different places. So they call it roval because it's part oval and part road course. :)

I think they're just trying to make the races more interesting is why they are changing things all the time. Personally I think it's annoying. They have lost some ticket holders because with the way prices are now days it's too expensive for some to go now.

I'm going to respond to the rest tomorrow, I need to get finished and get supper started. Sorry.

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy "rainy" Tuesday for me. Hoping the weather is much better for Cyndie, so she can go for a walk!

Susi... I hate change, so I can't even imagine how your poor dad feels when things change. Hoping he does better. Nice you can check in on him if you want!

Love the squirrel "bugging" you do to Greg! Love that he laughs about it! Keeps you guys young! Great relationship you have!

TRUST ME Susi, I have TRIED to bring Little Cub to our local station for him to talk. Hard when they are older and drive! It's not going to go with his "Mommy". Last night we talked again, but his girlfriend came, so it cute it short. I didn't mind talking in front of her, but I knew he was stopping at listening to me, so I gave up. I also had to get going.

Auntie Cyndie... hoping for that walking day for you! Of course Little Cub has a soccer game, so it HAS to be raining here! Gggrrr. They love playing in the rain, so if that means YOU have a good walking day, I'll take it!!! hee hee Good luck!

How is your co-worker doing?!!? Must be hard after her father's passing, or is she working to keep her busy. Hope she is okay!

Susi, I forgot to ask... what is this "roval"? Why do they keep changing up racing?!? Are they losing watchers? Mix it up?!?

I used to like how Melissa posted a list of things she was thankful for. So I was thinking, maybe each day... instead of my "Mamabear's Journey" I'd list three things. Maybe (1) An exercise I'll do, (2) Something I'm grateful for that day (3) Something New I'll do, or try to get done that day. Health, the soul/mind, being productive. I will continue to be honest with what I ate, if I exercise, etc. Guess I could still call it Mamabear Journey, but this will keep it short for you all, hee hee. Thank-you again for your support! Next week we start the 5% challenge here on SP, so that will be good too!

The full house of kidos... Lets say yesterday was pretty good... but as soon as B came today, my day has gotten stressful. This child... ggggrrrr... A, LMFP, and D are doing great! He's eaten, pooped and is just crying... there is nothing else. So if he wants to cry, in the other room it will be! At some point he'll fall a sleep.

Mamabear's Journey...
Exercise: Today I'm going to do my normal arm exercises and will try to do Planking!

Thankful: I'm very thankful to have this job I can still be home for my cub(s). It has some VERY hard times, but at least I'm here for my cubs and help in ways I couldn't if I worked out of the house.

Something new/get done today: Work on some of my MOMS Ministry. The lady that started this Ministry moved out of state. I want to get the group back together and still going strong! Not to pat myself on the back, but all she did was pick dates and book the church rooms at times. All the rest I did, so I can do this! Maybe someone will step up and help me, but for now, I'll do the best I can to keep us MOMS together! One step at a time!

Hope you ladies all have a good day! Time to post the QOTD...

Missy, Greg snickered at the new pix and said..okay just keep it up, then laughed. :) I dig at him every chance I get. LOL!

When I messaged Susie last night and told her about the inogen, she was thrilled, she said he would get use to it pretty quick and then love it. I do hope she's right. I didn't really want to go check on him today, but I can either have her message me if she's working or I can call there.

I never thought swaddling a baby was a good thing to do, but then I don't know that much about it. Little "mittens" for the hands so they don't scratch themselves I understand, but wrapping them like a mummy I don't. I do hope today goes well for you.

I would rather YC be at the place closer to home. You could always take him to the station to actually talk to the paramedics? Just a thought.

I don't think Mamabear's Journey is weird. :) But it's okay if you want to just be honest about things without using the title. :)

Cyndie, Greg likes the roval. :) It sure is different and yikes on the wrecks. They will get use to it though. :)

Alzheimer's people resist change more than most do. They can remember by repetition but even that takes a while. Dad's mind is mostly in the 50's now, so I know it's not easy for him. :(

I'm so glad you were able to get a walk in yesterday! I sure hope you can again today.

Banking for dad for me today.

HUGS!

Missy, I hope that things went well for you today with your full house. Congrats to YC and his picture. As for you, great job at the fair!

Susi, I'm sorry to hear that your dad is struggling to adjust to his oxygenator. Sometimes, it's human nature to resist change!

Melissa, we miss you!

As I said on the other thread, I was able to get a walk in today. Since today is October 1st, I know my chances to do that are dwindling.

Wishing everyone an outstanding October!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Susi, LOVE your new picture!!! How does Greg like it?!!? hee hee. Very cute!!!

Sorry it was a hard adjustments for your dad and the new tank. Hope it gets better!!! I'm hoping by the end of the week, there is nothing to complain about because he loves it!!!

I agree with the new baby and the spit up. He hardly drank for me today. They do many 6 oz bottles a day, I was lucky to get one in the 1/2 day he was here! They also forgot to tell be they swaddle his arms, mostly, to sleep. Reason why he wouldn't sleep. But over all, he did well.

Hoping tomorrow is good with them ALL here!!! God help me...

I know that about the nurses on the weekend, trust me! Seen it, heard about it, and watch them... constantly going for their smoking breaks!!!

The artist for the police would be good. I think he can make people look like who he's drawing!!! I could never do that!! But I don't see him doing it. He's like me, has to be in the mood to draw. If not, nothing comes out right.

When we were at the fair, we talked to some paramedics. They were saying the best place for him would be in Boston. They would pay for him to go to school because they are in need of paramedics right now!!! I guess the city near us does the same thing, but he would have to live there. Papabear was not happy with that, but fine with Boston (he would have to live there also!!!). It's all up to Little Cub, but he would have to listen to me, and to get him to sit and listen, well... I wish he was there at the fair with us!!!

BTW... that pic of him and his drawing at the fair was taken by LC's girlfriend. They went the next day and I asked her to take one... was SO glad she remembered!!!

Well have to make dinner. Prayer Shawl tonight and then maybe I can post my Mamabear's Journey... well see. Not much more to say, then what I already said, hee hee. Guess that "journey" thing is kind of weird, sorry. Since I'm already saying what I'm doing anyways. I should of just said I was going to be honest with you all and that keeps me on the straight and narrow. Am I making sense?!!? aaagghhh... sorry!

Talk to you all soon!

Missy, I have dad all set up. Since it was something new he was a little apprehensive about it. They don't like change when they are use to doing things one way for so long. They will work with him on it though.

He went from being upset from running out of air on the tanks to not wanting something on his lap. I know it's the disease though, so we need to be patient with him for a while about it. It's frustrating though, the harder we try to make his life easier the worse it seems to get. :(

I think they have the same amount of nurses and aides on the weekends, it's just that they use the younger ones then because the older one get day shift and weekends off. The younger ones goof off more because the administration isn't usually there.

The way we do enchiladas is to deep fry small corn tortillas, heat chili beans. Use a pie pan and layer the tortillas, beans, chopped onion, chopped lettuce, diced tomatoes in it and put sliced velveeta on the top. Heat it till the cheese bubbles. They are individual meals, and oh my it makes a lot, is very filling and oh so yummy! :)

Maybe the new baby's mom is feeding him too often or something, he shouldn't be spitting up that much. :( Could be to he isn't able to handle whatever formula or breast milk she's feeding him??

I'm glad you got your poutine. :) That made the fair worth going to for you! You did good on not getting toooooo much junk food! :) I wouldn't have stopped at that. :(

Awesome pix of YC and his picture! Congratulations to him for the blue ribbon! I didn't doubt for a second that he would get one! :) He would make a great artist for the police force. He could do that as a part time job. :)

HUGS!

Hello Ladies. Have to make this quick, sorry!
Thought I'd start the new Month Thread for Melissa. Hoping he computer problems are fixed and she is doing well?!! Miss her!

Susi... sorry you had to wait so long for that tank! Glad it came in finally! Hoping it all goes well bringing it in today. I agree also about waiting! Papabear and I were JUST talking about that yesterday!

We have a nursing home behind us and I was saying how it's weird there are SO MANY less cars on the weekends! The amount of people in there/living there doesn't change on the weekends, so why wouldn't they have the same amount of nurses?!!? Doesn't make sense to me I guess.

Sorry about the squirrels for Greg! I know how it is, just Papabear is going crazy with the chipmunks & mole ruining our grass, etc. Hoping he is able to relax listening to Ralph and Alice!!!

Your Enchiladas sounded good! I'm glad you enjoyed them! Did your Mom make them differently?!!? We haven't had them in a while. I think Older Cub and I would be the only ones to eat them.

Auntie Cyndie... That was very nice for Kim to call you on her ride to visit her friend! Glad you enjoyed it and got some walking in there! Smart thinking!

I'm glad you got a REAL (sort of) date in there, with your lunch out together! Congrats on staying in your calories range! Awesome!!!

Hoping today is a nice walking day for you also Auntie! Hope it's a good Monday!!! Fingers crossed!!!

LMFP was good on Friday for me. Today I have the new baby here, D. He's doing okay?!!? Spits up A LOT!!! They say he drinks a lot, but he's not for me... hummm... He's tired, but won't fall a asleep right now. Over all, he's doing okay. Just a half day for him today and tomorrow... Mom couldn't make a full day... hee hee.

The fair was good. All I really wanted for food was french fries. I know, not good, but I love them there. Anywho I was being picky, so didn't find any I wanted, so Papabear had his 4 items and we walked around. Then I saw someone with something... and I was hoping it was what I thought it was, and it was... POUTINE!!! YUMMY!!! I asked them where they got it and I got some too. I ended up eating nothing else and went home with my chocolate covered apple for later. So I was better than what I could of been, hee hee

We walked all day, so that was good, at the fair! Here is Little cub's picture at the fair... he got one of the blue ribbons!!! So proud of him!!!



It was a good weekend. Sunday was food shopping/date time (hee hee). Then Papabear made burgers, I prepared food for this week's dinners, and we watched a movie. Oh I did do my house work first. Papabear also made a small cake... I had one piece with no frosting on it. Trying to be good!

I have to feed the babies, but will be back later.
HUGS
