The meeting went well today. :) Kelly behaved and TJ couldn't make it at the last minute. Hehe! They do have wider wheelchairs and will look into getting him in one. Then PT will work with him on the inogen so he can do it himself. Sooner or later he is going to run out of excuses as to why he can't do it. LOL!

It sounds like you had a great time at the mall especially finding the dresses and skirt. :) I bet you look really pretty in them too! :)

Now you have me wanting beef stew and chicken noodles too. LOL! How about some nice tater soup? :) OUCH! I feel the pounds coming on just talking about it. Hehe!

I know you will be able to get to the gym and stay away from the ice cream and chips. We are all with you and like you or we wouldn't be here. :) I have virtually no will power either, proof, I had colby cheese and fritos for lunch today because I wanted to snack and not eat. My bad. But.... :)

Yes, you can do this, we can too, we just need to find the right mind set to do it. :)

I love the way you mentioned the kiddos! LOL! B, A and D... bad. LOL! I hope B stayed settled down for you.

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Morning ladies... Happy Wednesday!
Thank-you to all who take time to pray for our family and friends in need tonight! God Bless you all! (big teddy bear hugs)

Susi... we are warmer than you this morning. It's 41 out, but up north is getting some flurries! I agree, where is our Fall! It's hard going from good weather to freezing. I need that Fall to move slowly into this cold! Also, ruins our trees and the changing of colors. We've had some trees that changed, but then they look like they just died with not changing... bummer.

Good luck at your meeting today, emoticon for your Dad! Hope all works out!!

As for the sizes in clothes... I don't think I will even get to a 4 either, but I was happy a few years ago and I wasn't even near my goal weight, but saw a BIG difference! I was going to the gym three days a week, so I just have to get back into it! I do pretty good with the food... the SP tracker helps me with that... just have to leave the house and exercise!!! I did do my exercises yesterday here at home! Added some on too. But like you, I would like to just be a 12... that would be great! I want to look good in my dresses again!

Speaking of dresses, last night Papabear and I went to the mall and walked it! We did end up at JC Penneys. I saw two dresses I LOVED! actually four, but got two! They were still expensive and only 30% off, but that is how much I loved them! One I got in a size Medium, so that was nice! and the other a large, but it was in petites. I don't look in the petites section, but I always love their close/prints more! Anywho, loved the dress and when I looked for a size, that is when I saw it was in petites. I ended with getting another dress for $5 and a skirt for $7. It evened out I guess... three dresses and a skirt! hee hee

Sorry, on another babble... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Soup weather, yes!!! Monday I made my chicken noodle soup for dinner and have been having it for my lunches! A chili sounds good for next week... yum! A nice beef stew too! I love soups, stews, crockpot meals! If the cold is gonna come, might as well enjoy it some how!!!

Oh yeah, while we walked the mall, Papabear and I talked. I don't know what that 90 day challenge that lady did here on SP was, but we agreed to really try hard to be good for the 90 days. To have a starting point, we picked starting next week/Sunday! I'm pretty good with food, so just WON'T get ICE CREAM or CHIPS and will get to the gym three days a week. I can do this (try number four hundred and sixty million... hee hee)
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Auntie Cyndie... that show, The Cool Kids, is pretty good. I caught a couple so far, or bits of them. We watch a show before (or after?!?), so saw the commercials and I like Vicki Lawerance (is she?!?) so watched it. Nice to see "Mike" doing more.

Hope you had a good Tuesday at work! Now you just have to get over Hump day!!! You can do it! hee hee Have a good day!
emoticon

So LMFP didn't come today. Her brother is better, but the mom is keeping him home just one more day to make sure and decided to keep her home too! That leaves B, A, and D. A and D are great and so easy... BUT B has been making it miserable, as usual. He actually has calmed down. I have him in front of me and he's fine, so I just let him fussy and as I said, he quieted down and is actually playing with his toys. Fingers crossed!!!

Today WILL be a good Hump day, hee hee! Hope it is for you all too!
Time to post the QOTD... TTFN ladies!

No need to be sorry Missy. :) I'm so glad your headache went away too. :)

It's only 37 out this morning!?!?! This is supposed to be Fall not Winter. It is supposed to get to 54 today but not till late afternoon.

I'm so glad your flow is about ready to stop now. :) At least quiet down a lot! :) Now if you can only get rid of the cramps.

I found the best way to do with the ever changing food things is to just keep doing what I'm doing, it will come around again. LOL! Kind of like clothing styles. Hehe!

You are strong enough, your body just isn't ready to make the change. I know for a fact I will never see a size 4 or even 8 for that matter. I would be very excited to just be a 12 the rest of my life. I was a 10 when Greg and I got married, but you know what they say about that. LOL!

Cyndie, I hope today is a good one for you. Is it getting cold there too? I want soup in this weather but not sure what one I want to make. I do love a good bowl of chili! :)

HUGS!

Hi Ladies! Unfortunately, I'm late getting here, but I wanted to check in.

Susi, I'm glad to hear that your headache is better. As always, Greg takes such good care of you!

Missy, I watched "Cool Kids" with my mom Friday. It was fun seeing "Mike" on there. I hope the babies were good!

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Sorry Susi... hope the conference goes well TOMORROW for your dad! emoticon emoticon

My headache did go away, which I was really surprised because it was a day with the children!!! I'm guessing it was a period headache. I was getting them when I end my periods, so that makes sense. Also those won't go away with any meds!

This is my 4th period since my "procedure" and if I'm done, or ending, this was the BEST period I have even had!!! I can't even say their was a "flow" because it was like spotting for me. I'm hoping this is what it's like from now on, and if so... I'm in heaven!!! Thank-you God!! I get bad cramps, but I can take that for sure! Nothing new for me, hee hee

Enough about that, hee hee...
Glad all went well for Greg's appointment!!! Just those skin tags to be removed, and good to go! I'm happy for him/you!!!

I agree with you... everything is always changing... this is right to do, now it's not. Eat this, not that... no wait, it's reversed now! I hate it and makes it SO hard!! I try to stick with fresh foods and what is okay with me, my tummy. Example, I can only have one egg a day. I don't do that, but on the weekends if I decide to have eggs, I do one... but only because more than one will lead to tummy pains... same with greek yogurts... can only have three in a row, then have to miss a few days.

It's hard! I was just talking with Papabear last night, if we won the lottery, I would get a personal chef... but someone I could trust and do all fresh HEALTHY foods, etc. A girl can dream, hee hee

I was just looking at this lady who posted 90 days... 4 pictures of herself... on the SP Start page. She went from a size 14 to a 4 in pants and an XL to Medium with shirts. I want that so bad, but something in my brain keeps stopping me from getting it!!! It's SO annoying! I know it's something WE all struggle with here on SP, but I hate that part of me! I'm thinking it's my love of food?!!? My busy life?!?! But those are excuses, right?!!? GGGGRRRR to me! I'm just not strong enough! I HAVE to figure this out!!!

Anywho...

I hope you all have a good night. Back to cleaning up picks for Little Cub's senior pics and I should think dinner... hummmm....
Have a good night! I'll check in later!

Missy, the care conference is tomorrow afternoon. I'm picturing dad not using it anyway. I'm going to look for the worst and hope for the best.

I hope your headache went away today. I haven't had one since last night. :) It's not quite as windy today as it has been.

Greg had his 6 mo check up this morning and it went well. He does have another one though to surgically remove that skin tag by his eye. The last time he tried to freeze it off and it didn't work so now it's numbing, snip, 1 stitch, so that won't be so bad. :)

As kids we were only sent to stay with someone if both mom and dad had to be gone and it wasn't someplace we could go. They were on bowling teams and went out of town often for tournaments. Then there was the nights they both worked or were fighting and we had to go to my aunts on the next street for the night. Otherwise if they went, we went. Parents now days just don't want to be bothered. :( It's so sad!!

I can't get over the fact B's mom had to ask about the tylenol. LOL! Oh well. I sure hope LMFP doesn't bring and germs to your house.

You keep busy enough that it can be considered exercise. But going back to the gym is a good idea. :) I think just about every day they come up with something new to scare us into spending money, either things like that or buy organic food that costs a bundle. Remember when more than 3 eggs a week was so bad? Now it's not!

HUGS!

Morning ladies...
Susi... hoping the meeting goes well today! Hope they can... and your Dad is willing... to switch wheel chairs. Good luck!

That's funny... well not really funny... but Papabear and I had a headaches last night too. Mine was really bad and my good meds just made it mild, but was still there. Still here this morning. Hoping you are headache free today!!

Thank-you what you said about me and my MIL. I will say her daughter does do a lot for her, but to be fair my MIL does A LOT for her too! We never asked my MIL or my Mother to do all that Papabear's three sibling ask of my MIL. Papabear's older brother and us have the older children now and we never asked my MIL to do all she does for those three other siblings. Their children range from 3 to 5 and they use her so they can run errands like massages, nails getting done, to food shopping... because they can't with their children. Drives us, with the older kids, crazy!!! Leave to food shop with your children, or have ONE PARENT STAY HOME!!! Stupid!

Auntie Cyndie... glad your Monday was pretty good for a Monday! Hoping Tuesday is even better!!! Maybe a walking kind of day?!?! It's supposed to rain here today. Maybe that means sunshine for you! Good luck!

Too bad you didn't think of pictures. My children say to me I miss out on stuff because I'm always trying to capture it behind the camera, so they would be proud of you, hee hee. I just love making my books and looking back at those memories, so I'm weird I guess... hee hee.
So glad your dad had a good time though!!!

So B who is always fussy... she called this morning asking if she could give him tylenol because he is very fussy, just had 3 shots yesterday, and teething. Duh... YES!!! I'm seeing how this day will go... ggggrrrrr...

Now LMFP's grandmother just dropped her off, so I thought maybe something was wrong with the Mom... NOPE... older brother is getting sick. GGGRRRR... I do not want that in my house!!! Hoping LMFP is strong and fight off anything so she's not passing it to us all.

But today WILL be a good day!

Oh and this morning they were saying on the radio that it's been proven that people who don't exercise are worst off than a smoker!!! Great! I don't sit all day like they were saying, but I don't go to the gym... so I guess I have to figure this out!!! ggggrrrr....

On that note, I have to get up and feed B... he's already started!!! I'm sure with Tylenol he'll be tired too. The Mom said he hardly slept yesterday also. I think he should of stayed home... my opinion! hee hee

I'll be back! TTFN ladies...

Missy, I never dreamed that they would do that to me! I had taken 1 a couple of times last week and it never did. They must be really strong ones. No, no more of them, even 1! It was scary.

I did tell Greg when he came in, he was working outside. He asked why I didn't come get him. LOL! I was lucky to make it to the recliner! Yes, he watched me really close after that! :)

We have our care conference tomorrow afternoon, I have an idea if they can swing it. They do have wider wheelchairs, that the inogen would sit comfortably by his side. If they have one that's not being used, maybe they would switch them out for him. Of course that's still no guarantee he would use it on his own, but it's worth the try.

It sounds like your MIL never expected you to be of so much help with the food. It's nice that she was happy for your visit. :) You do more for her than her own daughters do. :)

I bought my pillow at Walmart and it is medium, they only had the soft and med at the time. I'm good with what I have. It would probably be better if you ordered it. If Papabear likes flat he could use a soft one and just keep it mashed down with his head.

Cyndie, I'm glad you didn't have a big stack when you went back to work, but with your co-worker being off, they seem to get you one way or another. :(

I think it's cool your dad won at pool. Hehe! After all it was HIS weekend. :) Bummer you didn't get any pictures. I don't usually think of it either. :(

My shoulder is still feeling pretty okay this morning, but that doesn't mean I will be using anything other than the EMU for it from now on :) I was up for a little while in the night with a sinus headache but was able to get back to sleep after a while. :) It was windy out the past few times I had to go out, so I'm sure that's what did it. All better now. :)

HUGS!

Missy, I'm sorry to say, I wasn't smart enough to take photos this weekend. I'm shocked that Jimmy didn't, either. On a happier note, my dad won the pool games. As for Papa Bear, I do agree with you about the project. I hope it all works out!

Susi, that's too bad about your shoulder. I'm glad to hear that things ended up okay. As for your dad, I'm sorry that things aren't going well with him and the oxygen tank. Like I said regarding Papa Bear, I hope it all works out!

My Monday was pretty good. I was apprehensive, since I was off Friday. My desk wasn't bad. Unfortunately, the other agent was off work today, so I wasn't able to get out for a walk today.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Hello Ladies...

Susi... so sorry you went through that, whatever it was, and was so sick! I'm glad it passed. I hope you told Greg and he was watching you!! On the other part, happy your shoulder was better!!! Now stay away from those pills!!!

Also sorry to read about your dad with your Dad. Glad all was better when you left, but I'm sure that was hard. Sorry it all happened.

Brought the last dinner we are making to my MIL. She was so happy to see me and visit. I was just stopping in for a minute, but seeing how happy she was, I stayed... a whole hour and a half! Papabear was home when I got home. Oh well, made her day. I also made soup in the crockpot for us, just in case, for dinner so it was ready when I got home!

The pillow sounds good. My problem is my pillows go flat. Papabear likes flat ones, but for me I like them a little firm, and my head falls into the fluff of it all, hee hee. I'll have to buy one and just try it! I heard if you get it over the TV you can get different firm-nesses, then if you buy it in a store. Did you get yours in the store or over the TV?

Auntie Cyndie... Speaking of TV... we don't really watch this show, but caught some of the new TV show "The Cool Kids" and I saw the actor who plans Mike... Sonny's dad on GH... on it. We didn't watch it, but was cool to see him on there. Love seeing soap stars getting out and doing more!

How was your Monday Auntie? Hope it was a good day. Not too busy, but busy enough to make the day fly by! (wink)

I'm "cleaning up" the senior pics I took and I'm really liking a lot of them! Hope Little Cub is happy!!! I hope to post some to show you all by the end of the week!

Hope you are having a good evening! Susi, glad you are better!!

No need to be sorry Missy. :) I don't expect you on weekends, but I appreciate it when you do stop in :)

I pulled my shoulder on the way home from visiting dad, in the car. It was hurting so bad. I was thinking about it, I usually put EMU on it but it was hurting worse than usual. I thought, I have those pain pills, and I can take 2 every 4 hours so I'll just take a couple of those, BIG mistake!!!! :(

Within about 15 minutes, I broke out in a cold sweat, started feeling dizzy and nauseous, like I was going to pass out, scared the heck out of me!!! I will never do that again!!!! I went to the sunroom to lay in the recliner for a while, within about 10 minutes it all passed.

Those were side effects but still. :( The only good thing is that my shoulder feels great. I just laid there with my eyes closed for about a half hour and I'm all better now. Wow!

Dad was mad today, my fault. :( We're okay though. I tried so hard to get him to understand how to use the inogen on his own, had him do it and everything and he just kept saying that I don't know what it's like, I'm not in that chair. We did make up of course and got in a better mood.

He got so loud grumping at me that one of the aides came in. I told her what was going on and she was okay with that, even tried to help out some. I did apologize to her for making her worry like that.

I've had the pillow for almost a year now. :) It only goes as flat as your head makes it for a comfortable position. You only have to fluff it a little and it's puffy again. You can wash and dry it, but you can't use fabric softener on it. It comes with a guarantee too. :) You can squish it up so it's fatter if that's what you like or double it, then just fluff and it's back to the way it's supposed to be. :) I love it!!

Sounds like Papabea was chasing the chickens. :( I do hope your BIL helps with it but I agree it would be much better doing it in the Spring. Home things should come first though. Greg has turned down several people wanting him to do things for him because he has projects here he was doing. I sure hope this works out. You don't sound mean at all!

I'm glad you got some pictures of YC! :) I can't wait to see them! You do a great job on pictures no matter what! :)

HUGS!

Good morning ladies! Happy Monday?!!??

Susi... Sorry I never made it back here over the weekend. I try to not be on my computer as much on the weekends. Also, I'm usually out having fun (wink - hee hee).

Sounds like you were productive, but also being a good girl and not over doing it!! Thank-you!!! Hope you had a nice weekend, relaxing too!

You still not visiting your Dad?!? If you do today, hope it's a nice visit. If you don't... hope you are enjoying sleeping in and having a break! (wink)

Oh, I want to get one of those pillows too! My parents got one also when they moved to GA and they like it. My one thing that stops me, is how long does it last, and will it go flat?!! I have gotten pillows that say they won't go flat, and they do! I did get a new one, and I feel better (upper shoulder pain gone). How long have you had yours?!? Maybe I'll look into getting one again...

Auntie Cyndie... sounds like your Daddy had a good birthday!!! Did you get any pics on you and him?!? You know how I love pictures, hee hee. Hope your Dad won at pool... sorry Jimmy, cheering on the birthday boy!!!

Hope your dinner out was nice?!! I'm sure you had a great time... your Parents too! I'm happy it was a nice visit!!

Hope you were able to enjoy your Sunday too. Hope it wasn't cleaning and getting ready for your week. Always nice to be home and relax too! Like Susi said, hoping you have a good start to your week!

We had a good, but busy weekend. Saturday Papabear started the closet, but before doing it he decided to go in the attic. (our entry to the attic is in that closet). We have nothing up there, but YEARS... I mean the cubs were LITTLE... he got all this insulation for free he wanted to lay out down there. He stacked it all up there and it sat for these years!!!

He decided any bees that might be there, would be gone, and it's not too hot outside, so a good time to lay it out. BUT, then when up there, he thought... I really want to put those pot lights/recessed lights in the hallway. As we talked, he then thought it would be nice to put them in the bedrooms too. Why lay out all that insulation, and then have to move it to put those lights in. We only had 6, so the hallway one for now. BUT, then he thought some near the sink in the kitchen would be nice too.

Long story short, we got two in the kitchen and two in the hallway put in! He laid a third of the insulation down and left the rooms bare, so he can do those next. He also patched and painted the closet. We got the bar and he'l probable stain the bar and shelves tonight. Maybe by the end of the week it'll be all done (the closet).

I'm worried because he also took Thursday off to help his brother. His brother wants to put a patio in, so he's going to help him. Love he is, but this brother starts things and never finishes them, so I'm worried it'll get started, take weeks to do and my house stays un complete. It's really Papabear's fault, because his brother just mentioned it and Papabear ran with planning it all out and getting it going. Wednesday will be Papabear getting everything that is needed for it and delivering it to his brother's house. I'm just hoping this brother helps!!!

I sound mean and not sharing of Papabear, but I know his family and how these things can turn into messes. Praying I'm wrong! I just think Spring would of been better to do this, but whatever. I just made it clear my house can not stay a mess for being pushed for him. I have a day care to run. Right now everything for the closet is in older cub's room or the basement. You know me, I hate messes, hee hee.

ANYWHO... sorry for that sort of rant!

Sunday I did Little Cub's pictures. It was COLD and very windy. NOT the right weather for pictures, but worked with what I had. We went to the soccer field and got some shots there, the school... used the brick wall of the building... then a local park, Little Cub wanted this spot he goes with his friends in the summer (train tracks), and lastly I thought of going to the fire station hoping they would let us take pictures with the trucks (since he wants to be a paramedic). It was great and a good afternoon with Little cub. They aren't the best pics... mostly because of the wind... but should be okay. I'm gonna clean them up some and then will share, promise!

Okay, well I babbled enough. Hope you all are having a good day! Time to post the QOTD...

Cyndie, I'm so glad your parents enjoyed our love! :) And especially that your dad was feeling so good! :) It sounds like you had a really wonderful time!

I sure hope work is good today so you don't have the Monday junk there. Maybe warm enough to take a little walk?

Susi, Missy is right, your scarecrow is cute! I'm glad that you gave that lady a good review. I think it's good to give reviews, both positive and negative! It's good to hear that you like "My Pillow" so much. I may have to try one!

Missy, Susi is right, I love that throwback photo of the cubs is so cute! That's great news about Younger Cub. And thanks for popping in to keep Susi company while I was out of town!

I can honestly say my dad was happy to get birthday wishes from my gal pals, and my parents were happy to get extra hugs and kisses. Jimmy and my dad played pool Friday and Saturday. I was excited as he hadn't felt well enough to do that when we were there Labor Day.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Thanks for stopping in Missy! It gets lonely in here when Cyndie is gone on the weekends.

I kind of thought the scarecrow was cute too, I wish they had them in the emoticons.

Did you get a pillow? I have a "My Pillow" and I love it! They are very pricey but I think worth the money. :) I use to sleep on 2 now I just have that one. Very comfy!

Congratulations to YC and the team for winning! It would have been nice had the other team lost but being tied for 1st is pretty awesome! :)

I did have a good day yesterday. I have cleaning today but Greg will probably do most of it. I will dust, he isn't so great about that. LOL! A few dishes to do and MAYBE a few other small things. I'm ready to do a little more now, but I won't over do it. :)

HUGS!

Hello Susi, thought I'd stop in and say hi. I know Cyndie isn't here, so trying to stop in and say a hello!

Glad you were able to get out and window shop! I feel like getting out right now too! Have to get a new pillow, so Wal-Mart it'll be. Would like to get to Hobby Lobby, but don't "need" anything, so trying to be good! hee hee

Glad you left that lady a good review. Always nice to send "nice" comments to the higher ups! She was good, so she deserved it!

Glad you didn't lose everything you wrote with the power company turning it off. Been there and not so lucky!

Little Cub did play at his game last night. I would of hoped so, since it was SENIOR NIGHT!!! He had like 4 shots on goal too! Their keeper/goalie was good! One hit the bar and the other went over the net. But he played very well. I wanted him to score, but happy he played! It was a perfect night! (& they won 3 to 0... still tied for 1st place... the other team won their game too, poohie)

Hope you are having a good day Susi. emoticon
Have to go post my 5% challenge...

Missy, I so love that pix of the baby bears!!! So adorable! :) Thank you for sharing it!! :)

I guess a surgery takes a lot out of a person, I'm still a bit on the sluggish side, but doing really well. :) I went to Dollar General this afternoon just to snoop around and it was nice getting out by myself again. I did a few days back but needed it again. :)

After the call from the ins company they asked if I would take a phone survey and I did. It was about how she was on the phone with me so of course I gave her an excellent review. She did give me her name and number in case I had any questions. :)

I'm glad you both went to the wake. :) People do remember those they enjoy being around even if they hadn't been around them too often. Besides, it shouldn't matter if she actually remembered names right now or not, a person is there to pay respects.

I know you will get some really great pictures! I hope that coach isn't a jerk this time at least. I know YC will get to play. :)

Just about 10 min. ago the power company came. They are changing meters and said they needed to shut the power off but only for a few minutes. I was in the middle of typing this and when I started back up it popped right back up! I was excited, I figured it was lost and I would have to start all over. Hehe! Loved it. That usually doesn't happen.

Have fun tonight! GO BADGERS!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon

HUGS!

Morning ladies! Happy Friday!!! WooHoo!

Susi... that video of Oliver sounded very sweet! Reminds me of my cubs. We got a tricycle for OC and it had a wagon trailer attached. It was the perfect size for LC. He loved driving his brother around! I have the picture up on my wall... one of my favorites!


Glad you are able to get back to sleep at night and get some rest! Also happy you are doing better each day!!! Hoping today is a better day also!

That's great about your insurance company!!! Nice to have good moments with them like that! That's when I would call, or write an email saying how good that lady was! Did you get her name? Happy she cared and was nice!

Lets say my MIL has her moments! hee hee But she has been being really good lately, so maybe she has grown up... haa haa! Maybe it's just I've grown and know to ignore their *rap they do or have done!

Auntie Cyndie... I know you have already left, but hoping you are having a wonderful day with your Mommy and Daddy! Enjoy your double date night! That sounds like fun! Are you going to have them sing to your Dad?!!? Can't wait to hear/read all about it when you come back!!! Happy birthday again to you Daddy!!!
emoticon emoticon

We did go to the wake, and it went well. That guy was there and came over at the end, but others were there from work, so they talked to him and Papabear just stayed quiet. I know he was happy he went since he saw old friends. And his other big fear that the guy who passed, his wife wouldn't remember us... well she was right at the door as you walked in and right away said "hello Papabear and Mamabear" (of course our real names, hee hee). I knew she would remember us! Silly Papabear! Anywho, it was sad, but went okay.

Tonight they are doing the big "Senior Night" for Little Cub's soccer team! Should be good... and a nice time to take pics!!! They moved up the time, so I was happy that Papabear will be getting out early from work to be there. Before the game, they will introduce the senior players and the coaches say something about them. THAT will be interesting since this coach is being such a jerk!!! The team they are playing is pretty bad, so I'm hoping LC will get play time tonight!!! Did I tell you all they are tied for 1st place!!! Go Bulldogs!

Susi... hoping you and Greg have a good day! I'll check in later.

Susi, what a cute photo of Oliver! I appreciate the update! And that was great that the insurance company called you! Most of all, I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better!

Missy, what a great story about your MIL! As for her son, you're right, the wake is for the family of the deceased. You're right to go! Maybe the co-worker wont be there when you are.

Jimmy and I are headed to Cincinnati to go on a "double date" with my parents for my dad's 90th birthday. I will give him hugs and kisses from my Gal Pals! "See" you Sunday!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Missy, Megan posts his pix on facebook each month with his new stats, so I swipe one off that. Hehe! The other day her dad posted a video of another kid, probably about 6 and he was on a small 4 wheeler in a fenced in area, had a long rope attached and at the other end he was pulling oliver around in a little 4 wheeled baby jumper thing. It was so cute. He wasn't going fast and the ground was level. :)

Susie lives in Logan, about a 20 minute drive from here. Her new job will take her in the other direction to Athens about 20 minutes from her home.

I'm still worn out and sluggish but feeling pretty good today. I'm still waking up in the night, but after a few hours I'm able to go back to sleep. :) And that is wonderful!

My ins co called today to check on me from my surgery. I never had that happen before. Sure surprised me! They also wanted to know how the hospital treated me and did they give me my discharge instructions and was there any med changes. The lady was super nice. :)

Your MIL sure has changed. :) I think it was so sweet of her to have you sit and talk with her like that. I'm glad she liked what you fixed and the meat too. :) Sure sounds like a good meal to me. :)

I agree too that you should go to the wake. It's not about Papabear, it's about the departed. I've gone to many around people I really didn't like at all, but you either ignore them or bite your tongue, swallow your pride and be nice. Holding a grudge sure isn't good but many are like that. I will pray he comes out of that.

Some of the moms now days need a special class. I swear they are getting stranger all the time. You can't force a baby to eat if he's not hungry and we all know what happens when you do. I don't understand why they don't get that. :( I hope the kids started behaving for you.

HUGS!

Good morning ladies...

Auntie Cyndie... Happy "Friday" then to you today!!! I hope you have a wonderful 3 day weekend with Jimmy, your Mom, and the birthday boy!!! BIG happy birthday to him!!! Are you doing a special party, or just family? Whatever you do, have a GREAT time!!! Have some ice cream for me! (thank-you)
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Susi... Oliver is so cute!! I love the bum scoot. Always so cute!! Did they send you a picture, or did they come to visit you?

I'm glad you will be able to see your nurse friend here and there still! They are lucky she will still be helping them here and there. How far is she going to be now?!? Hours away, I'm guessing... Good luck to her!

How are you feeling this morning? Still getting better? I hope so! Are you able to sleep more, or still waking up early? I wasn't sure if you were more exhausted because of this all, and were able to get some extra sleep?

Saw my MIL yesterday. I think she was very happy to have us stay for dinner with them! She stayed on the living room chair, so kept calling me over to sit with her... very unlike her, hee hee. It was a very nice visit.

I was worried because when my FIL was making up her plate of food, she said "little meat because I don't really like meat". Of course I was like "what"?!? I felt so bad. BUT r=then she asked for seconds of the chicken!!! She actually had seconds of potatoes and carrots, so that was good!

I think she worries about meat being too tough for her to chew, but I make good juicy chicken (wink), so it was moist and easy to eat. Haa haa

I loved how Papabear asked their opinions on if he should go to this wake we have tonight. I think I told you all about it, right?!? Anywho, I think he expected them to disagree with me... I feel he/we should go... and they didn't! hee hee. My FIL actually got into this huge conversation about how Papabear really have to stop looking at things, people in these ways he does. I know Papabear was steaming inside, but I agreed with EVERYTHING He said and lots was the same of what I have said to him!

Papabear takes things SO personal and holds grudges at times. He's a great man, but like us all, has his faults! I would have to say if there was one thing I did not like about Papabear, it would be that! He's making his life so hard at times... like this wake. He doesn't like ONE co-worker who will be there, so doesn't want to go. But it's not about him, it's about the guy who passed and his family!!!

Anywho, we are going. If Papabear wasn't going, I'd go alone anyways. It's the right thing to do!

Opps, got off on a babble... sorry!

I was really bummed about the picture taking, but I'm thinking there must be a reason, so Sunday WILL work out!!!
emoticon

The children are testing me today! B is being his normal self. His Mom was all worried about how he's not drinking all his bottles here. How much can a child eat?!! I keep trying, but he doesn't want it, so what do I do?!!? I'm not forcing him to eat and they spit it up!!! Some parents!

D has been fussier then normal today, but still a good little guy!
Today is LMFP's 1st birthday! She's doing well. Still testing her "fake cry", but it doesn't work on me.
Then A is doing good, but started taking all toys away from everyone these past weeks. So working on that, but over all is good!

So today has been a day, but I'll be fine, I always am! And speaking of the kidos, time for snackie and then I'll feed D... he's waking up and even though Dad said he drank a lot this morning, I think he's growing and he wants MORE!
emoticon emoticon

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

Missy, it just looks like things weren't supposed to work out for you with the pictures yesterday. :( I will pray for nice weather on Sunday for you to do the photo shoot.

I sure hope today is MUCH better with the kids than yesterday was. Speaking of little ones, here's an 8 mo. picture of Oliver..



He now has a tooth and getting a second one in, he clearly says ma-ma and da-da, and he likes to scoot around on his butt. :)

Cyndie, I know you will love seeing your parents with Jimmy! :) Again, have a safe trip and don't forget the hugs!

Susie, the nurse, and I have plans to do lunch now and then when she will be in town. I will miss seeing her so much though. I'm just glad she'll work here occasionally.

HUGS!

Linda, it's good to see you on here! Thanks for posting the photos of Happy! She is so lucky to have a good home like yours!

Susi, I'm glad that you were able to get out to see your dad today. I'm glad for that nurse that she got a good job. I hope it all works out!

My dad's 90th birthday is actually Friday. That was a prefect excuse for me and Jimmy to have a three day weekend. LOL

Hoping that everyone had a happy Hump Day!

Hugs!

Hello ladies...
Susi... glad your appointment went well and you were able to see your Daddy! Glad he said it was okay for you to take that time to heal and rest! He's such a good dad, but we knew that... just look at his daughter!!! (wink)

It's always hard when someone leaves, like your nurse friend. Of course you can understand why and that helps. Glad you can still keep in touch! Good luck to her!!!

GGgggrrr... I think God is trying to tell me something here...aaahhhh. I'll trust in him... SO, Little Cub was getting out of the shower, the last parents was like 5 minutes away and I was ready to go for pictures!!! About 3pm, the clouds started to roll in... okay, I can handle clouds! Then I notices... 3:15'ish... the winds were picking up. That could cause some troubles, but I can still do this! Then as the last parent was picking up, the sky opened up and it was pouring!!! I can NOT work with rain! GGGRRRR!

So looking over my calendar and LC's, it looks like I can squeeze in Sunday morning / afternoon, after church with him!!!

I do want to point out that the sun is back out and shining brightly! Came back out at 4:40pm. Enough time to mess everything up. Too close to bringing my in-laws dinner, so I had no time now. And LC made plans with the girlfriend, so till Sunday... hee hee FINGERS CROSSED!!!

Lets say I was VERY happy for today to be done! B was very fussy, so to bed he went and he slept for 2 hours! Still got up fussy, but not as bad. LMFP started fussy, but I know that was because she misses her mom... which BTW is going home tonight. They do not know what is wrong, so she has to wear a heart monitor... and A was in the mood to take toys, so we worked on that! Oh yeah and D came in spitting up, but also slept more than usual, so maybe they all just need a weekend to REST! Can't wait, hee hee.

Hope you all have a good night!

Mom great seeing you on here! Hope Daddy is feeling better tomorrow! Love you both!

Auntie Cyndie... hope you had a good hump day!!

Linda, Happy is very cute! :) You can do it right! :) I know you will enjoy her very much! :) Thank you for introducing her to us!

Missy, I do hope the kids got out of their spell. I just don't know how you do it! All I can say is you are Wonder Woman! :)

I do hope your dad is feeling better now and I'm glad your MIL is.

My appointment went fast, it was just a CT scan and they were finished before my appt was even supposed to start. :)

Dad was very happy to see me today. :) I had to tell him to hug gently, I was afraid he would squeeze and hurt my tummy. LOL! He was very good today and said now that he sees I am okay, take the rest of the week off and don't come back till I feel like it. :) Daddy knows best. :)

My favorite nurse/friend out there...tomorrow is her last day. :) I'm so sad but she had friended me on facebook a long time ago so we can keep in touch. She will fill in when needed there a few times a month. She got a better job closer to home, bankers hours and great benefits. I can't say I blame her but everyone will miss her, she if very good and very sweet.

It's okay if you don't post Mamabear's journey, no point in repeating. :) Of course we believe you when you tell us what you do and don't do!! Why would you think we wouldn't? Silly bear! :)

Were you able to get some pix of YC at the field? You always do such a beautiful job on your photos! Don't get mad at yourself for worrying about things like that. It's something that is very important to you and something that seems silly isn't! Many times I stress over things then think about others, I do decided that my things are as important to me as theirs are to them. :)

HUGS!

Hi everyone, Missy already told you that we are adopting a stray dog tomorrow, she was found by the police and we saw her at the animal shelter and just fell in love with her. By looking at her teeth, thy think she is about 3yrs old. We are going to name her Happy. I wanted to share a picture of her with you. Hope I can do this right.

Isn't she so cute???


No body ever promised us a tomorrow.

Hate is a very strong word.

Think before we use it

Hugs DanLin

Have a wonderful day!!!!

Morning ladies!

Happy Wednesday?!!? I'm glad today is our day of prayers, because the way today is going, I NEED them!!! D and B came in moody! So did LMFP, but she could sense something was up since Dad dropped her off and she didn't see Mom last night. She is better right now.

Texting with my Mom this morning too... my Dad is still sleeping so not sure how he's feeling yet. Hoping he's better and the sleeping helped!!!

As for my MIL, I finally got a hold of her and she is good. She's enjoying watching her animal movies, reading her books, and holding her bunny! So she's good.

LMFP's Mom, still don't know. She's hoping to get out today, but they still have no clue what is wrong with her. So scary. I'm praying she is okay...

Auntie Cyndie... Happy birthday to your Daddy!!! WooHoo! I'm sure he'll be SO happy to see you and Jimmy!!! Like Susi said, safe travels! When is his actual birthday date? Hope you enjoy your visit... and some cake/ice cream for me (hee hee)!!!

You must feel good to have your house work all done and not have to worry about it. I always say I'm gonna do that... a little each day, but then wait till Sunday to do it. I have to get out of that routine and maybe Friday night or during the week... hee hee.

Susi... So glad you have Greg! He's a good guy! Glad he's taking such good care of you!! Thank-you Greg!!!

I hear you about TJ cooking for you... I know people like that too! I freak when LC brings Reeses to the kitchen door way! No piggie in the eating area!!! hee hee

I'm sure your Dad will be happy to see you today! But only do it if you are up to it. Don't want to push it and you go backwards! Make it quick, and hope it's a good visit!!! Good luck at your appointment too!

How funny would it be is "Skunk" was his/her real name... hee hee. It's possible with how h looks! hee hee

The few people I know who had the shingles... my MIL & Godmother were two of them... and they got a mind case and that was bad! I feel bad for people that get it!!! I'll definitely get the shot!!! When my cubs were little that is when they started saying NOT to let them get chicken pox and started the shots with them to prevent getting it!

So yesterday, I decided not to post my Mamabear journey because I felt I'd be writing the same thing and no need for you all to keep reading it over and over again. Kind of the same for today. I feel like I'm failing with it, but then I'll just keep telling you all the truth and go with it.

Actually when I re-read that last line it sounds like I've been lying to you all... I'm NOT, just so you know, hee hee. I just mean if I did not do my exercises, and planned to do them, I'm just going to tell you, not "not" tell you like I have sometimes in the past! So Just to clarify, I haven't been lying!!!

So yesterday, I did not exercise, I stayed in my calories, but also did snack more then I normally do... or made wrong choices. I made my Apple Crisp Sunday, which isn't healthy, and that is what I had for lunch with two small scoops of ice cream on it. Bad choices, but since we had pork loin and veggies for dinner and my breakfast was good, I was still in calories.

Today is a busy day, and the children are crazy, so we'll see how it goes. I want to do some of LC's senior pics, I have to make dinner for my MIL and bring it over, and that all happens at the same time of the day, and traffic times.

I want to get pics of him on the school field, but have a short time frame before practices, etc start. And I have to beat the day light because I can't leave till D is picked up and that's close to 4pm. Papabear wants to drop the food, to my MIL, at 5:30pm. So with traveling (and traffic) not sure how much pics time I'll get. Hoping all works out. I can do this... hee hee

I shouldn't complain... so many other people have more problems then worrying about taking pics. I make me made at me sometimes!!! Sorry...

Okay time to post the QOTD... I'll be back ladies! HUGS

Missy, Greg is doing the cleaning. :) He's helping me with the cooking though, he would do it, but I need to be up and doing something now and then. Nothing big, he's doing that for me, I'm just doing the light, easy stuff. :)

NO WAY would I want TJ to cook for me. Even when we have the family get togethers, we have her bring the store bought stuff. Her cats get on the cabinets and non of us care for cat hair in our food. We just don't trust it.

Yes, dad knows I had to have a surgery. He was really worried about me. Both the girls told him I was okay afterwards though, but he's still worrying, I know he wants to see for himself, so we will visit him today after my lung scan. I don't plan on staying long though, the going yesterday wore me out.

I'm so glad your parents didn't have any storm damage! :) You dad is in my prayers for feeling better soon.

I'm glad D is so good for you, I sure hope he stays that way. :)

I called the kitty Skunk, because of his black and white and the stripes on both sides of his head. Actually one morning I was sitting on the deck and it was just barely dawn and he was coming down the hill and I thought at first it was a skunk, so the name stuck. LOL!

Cyndie, years ago my mom had shingles. She had gone to Fla for a union conference and she got them there. When she came home even I could barely recognize her. She had them on her entire face and the upper right side of her body. She was a mess and very miserable. :(

Wish your dad a very happy birthday! And of course don't forget to give them both their "other daughters" hugs. :) I know I will say this again before you leave, but have a safe trip and have fun! :)

HUGS!

God Bless and Hugs!

Missy, I am praying for your MIL, LMFP's mom and your dad. My dad, my mom's dad one of my mom's sisters had shingles, so my parents convinced me to get the shingles shot. I was fortunate that it didn't bother me at all.

Susi, what great photos! Skunk is so cute! And that nut is awesome! As for TJ, I'm sorry that it didn't take long for her true colors to show. I'm glad that your pain is manageable. We thank Greg for taking good care of our Gal Pal!

Jimmy and I are headed to Cincinnati on Friday for my dad's 90th birthday. Jimmy had to work tonight, so I used tonight to get my housework done.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

Cyndie

Hello ladies...
Susi... glad your appointment went well and all is looking good. Sorry about the mess up! I have had that happen to and "they" are never at fault! Ggggrrr...

I know you will listen and be good. Since you can't do mush, is Greg cooking and cleaning too?!! I know he's a good guy, so probably is!!! I'm glad he's there for you! TJ should be making you meals like we are doing for my MIL, hee hee.

That makes sense about TJ, speaking about her. I would hope her and Kelly step up to help with your Dad! Does he know about your surgery?!? Hope he understands why you aren't visiting and is doing okay. But you don't worry about any of that! Take care of YOU!!!

The nut is really cool! Nice find! That is because Greg loves you!!!

My parents didn't have any storm damage, so they are good. I guess my Dad is sick right now. Not sure if it's from the shingles shot he got. Hope he is better soon!

Thank-you for the prayers for my MIL and LMFP's Mom. LMFP's Mom was admitted into the hospital. The grandmother came to pick up LMFP and her eyes were all blood shot... she teared up talking with me. I feel for their family. They really are very nice, loving people!!!

Haven't heard from my MIL... or FIL yet. I'll have Papabear call over tonight to check in. I have texted her, but nothing. I'm sure she is resting a lot!

"B" was B!!! I'll leave it at that! It's funny how LMFP's can go near him and he cries, but then I have baby D... who is 2/3 months and doesn't react to any of the noises. We'll he might get wide eyed, but either goes back to "playing" or sleeping. So glad he's a good baby!!!

Oh, so is "Skunk" his name, or one you gave him? It's cute either way, just curious... hee hee.

Hope your night continues to be better and better Susi.

Hope you had a good day Auntie Cyndie!
Hugs to you both!

Missy, no, no more animals inside for us. If we ever decided to it would be a dog anyway. He must belong to someone because he's so friendly. Feral cats are skittish and will run away from people. The very first time Skunk came here he came right up to me and started rubbing on my leg. :)

I think it's nice your mom and dad are getting another dog. I know Linda really loves them. :) Did they have any storm damage?

I went to my appt at 10:45 and guess what? They said it was at 1:45. I know she told me on the phone it was 10:45. Oh well, we went back later. The appt went well, the incisions look good, lift nothing over 5 lbs for at least a couple of weeks, take it easy, it will take a while to heal. :)

And YES! I will follow orders!!! :) I sure don't want anything in there to come apart and have to go back again! The pill did help, but that's the only one I've taken so far. It's mostly all pressure and not really pain. It is a little hard still when I cough or take a yawn, but it's not impossible to live with. :)

I think the only hope with TJ was she was hoping to know when I would be better so she could stop visiting dad more often again.

Greg only watches college football and only when our Buckeyes are playing. He does watch the basketball playoffs occasionally too. Don't worry, he will get his specials on Sundays anyway. :)

Congratulations again to YC and the team! Woohoo! I'm rooting for them to go ALL THE WAY! :) I'm glad he got to play again. :) I agree, I think he's the key to winning too!

That was so sweet of YC girl to sit with you and talk. :) I hope she works out well. I'm sure it is very hard when you worry about getting to attached to one of the girls, just in case. I think I would anyway. :(

How is MIL doing? I'm sure she'll have rehab with that. It would be nice if they can do it at home. :)

I'm sending up prayers for LMFP mom. I do hope she is okay. That has to be very worrisome. :(

I hope B straightened up for you today.

Greg worked outside and found an open nut that we are going to save, it has a perfect heart in it!!! :)



HUGS!

Morning ladies...

Susi... Skunk is cute. Greg is so nice to take care of him. Is he a stray or someone's cat?!? You guys wouldn't want a cat or dog again?

Speaking of pets, my Dad sent me a text... they are getting a rescue dog soon. They saw him in a shelter and will adopt "her", actually, it's a girl. I didn't know they were looking for a pet. Last I knew they didn't want one, but I guess they changed their minds.

I'm glad Greg is taking good care of you! I hope the meds helped some?!! Why be in pain, or discomfort, if not needed. I'm like you and try not to take meds all the time, but you just had surgery, so this was acceptable (wink). Hoping today is better! Hope you were able to sleep last night!

That sister of yours is strange, hee hee. Glad we got the good sister on this team, haa haa. It was nice she checked in on you... there is SOME hope then, hee hee.

Racing season almost done?!!? It did go by fast!!! What will Greg do with out his races?!? Is he a football guy too? I forgot?!? You have to do "something" so you can make those "special" meals, hee hee

Auntie Cyndie... nice to read you had a good Monday! That means this week should be a good one! Fingers Crossed!!! Hoping it's a Terrific Tuesday!!

As for the game last night, it was another win... 4 to 0. Little Cub did play and had an assist to a goal. He almost got two goals in also, but the defender blocked it. Oh well. At least he played. They have two more regular games, then play offs! They will definitely be in that. They were a couple points off from the 1st place, and that was because they still had to play that make up game last night. Since they won, I would think they are above or VERY close!!! Now they just have to WIN it all!!!

This coach has gotten his team to the semi-finals, but never wins... for like 8 years!!! How awesome would it be to finally win!! I know Little cub would say it's great, but sad because he feels he didn't really help to get them there... with no goals (a couple assist)... and he didn't play every game. But a winning season is a winning season! When he was on the freshman team and then the JV team the past two years... they WON and were champions! I think LC is the key to a winning team, hee hee.

As for the rain, it did off and on, but not pouring like it has done some many times!!! I had a really good time because LC's girlfriend sat with me (Papabear stands in the back, I get closer so I can get better pictures). We talked the whole time and it was really nice!!! She really is a sweetie. I'm always afraid to get attached, because you never know... but she's a nice girl!!!

I have to check on my MIL. Since I was at the game most of the night, when we got home at 9pm, I didn't want to call and wake her. My FIL has a phone, but doesn't use it/answer it. I figured my SIL would let us know if something happened, so I'm assuming all went well. I'll contact my MIL around 10am, she should be up then for sure. Thank-you for the prayers!

Well I need to feed the kidos snackies. I'll check in later. I have B here and he is his normal self and fussy today. Hoping it gets better. The other three are great as usual!

Oh, and prayers for LMFP's mom please... she has a heart condition and wasn't feeling right when she got up today, so her Mom drove her here to drop off LMFP and was bringing her into the ER. She thinks she'll be fine, but better to check and be safe.

Okay, TTFN ladies!!!

Missy, I still need to get orders for my mammo too, I usually get it this month. And Greg has his checkup coming soon too. I'm about sick of doctors right now. :(

I do hope your family does much better next year and yours is good too Cyndie.

Did it rain last night and cancel the game again? Seems like they're never going to be able to make it up.

I hope YC's girl liked the meal you fixed last night, it sounds good to me. :) I'm glad you had enough for everyone, you would have had to wing it if not.

Greg started to go out for just a bit yesterday, then Skunk, the kitty who often visits with us saw him on the deck and came flying down the hill for some lovin. :) It started sprinkling so Greg brought him in. I dried him with a towel and gave him some snacks. It stopped raining so Greg put him back out. He really is a sweetie.



Greg decided he wanted me to have the pain meds, so he went and got them. Then he decided I needed to take one. LOL! So I did. I wasn't in "pain" but there was pressure on my side and the middle of my tummy felt heavy when I stood up. It still does a little this morning but not as much as yesterday. When I cough or sneeze, or take a deep breath it's a little tough but manageable. :)

Cyndie, I'm glad you had a good day yesterday! I hope today is a carbon copy of that!

It's cold out this morning at 36 and 53 is our high for today only it doesn't come till around 5 or so. It would have been nice if it would have gradually gotten there instead of just popping in like it did.

I'm thinking next month, not sure what date, is the end of the racing season already. Seemed kind of short this year to me, but then again, I didn't set and watch the entire races.

It was nice that TJ texted me. I saw on her facebook page last week that she was upset and crying and depressed and so on about something but she didn't say what. I asked Kelly how she was doing and she said she was fine, so who knows. I won't hold my breath again for her to change completely, it won't happen.

HUGS!

Missy, we are praying for MIL! Congrats to YC and his team. I'm sorry to hear that he's scheduled to play tonight in the rain. On a happier note, I'm glad that you made enough dinner for him and his GF!

Susi, we're happy to have you back in the Valley, and we're happy to hear that Greg is taking such good care of you. We've always known he was a keeper! What huge news about TJ!

I was really wondering about NASCAR, but I didn't want to pressure you. LOL As for me, I did have a good Monday.

Wishing everyone a wonderful evening!

Hugs!

I guess there is hope for TJ?!! Nannnn... hee hee. Glad she checked in though. It's about time!!!

Hope your day is going well and YOU are resting!!! Sounds like you were busy making appointments! 2018 has been a year AT the doctors for my WHOLE family. So in that way, I'm ready for 2019 and hoping it's a better health year! (for us all - wink)

The last time I did the other closet, I did that... had everything out of it and like I was ready to do it. I would of, of course, but hoped he would... and he did. Then when I wanted the hallway painted I took everything off the walls and was ready to go, and he took over.
So you are right Susi, I need to start the closet myself, hee hee...

So it's been gloomy all day. That game for Little cub that has been canceled twice now, is to be played tonight at 7pm. Guess when it's gonna rain?!! ggggrrrr...

LC's girlfriend came over after school and is now having dinner with us... glad I made enough. Since LC is hardly here for dinner, we have been making less for meals. Papabear got some grounded turkey and it had to be cooked/used, so I'm making American Chow Suey... hope she likes it, hee hee

Hope you are still doing okay Susi?!! Hope Greg stayed in to take care of you... or at least checked in often!!! Have a good... relaxing... evening! HUGS

I got my appts set up. I just told them at Sielski's that he could talk to Dr. Scoggins. Hehe! Worked out though they told me Scoggins is now on a 2 week vacation. :) I go in tomorrow morning but I see the PA, which is fine, it's his daughter. :)

The one with Dr. Custer will be on the 29th, and I have that yearly lung scan this Wednesday morning. Then to Dr. Bruce about that in Nov. and My hearing test on Dec. 2nd. Geez, I guess 2018 is going out on a doctor slip for me. LOL!

You know what I use to do to Greg, when he worked? LOL! If I wanted something done, and he was kind of iffy about it, I would have it good and started by the time he got home from work, and he would say, you're not doing it just so, and would take over and finish it. Hehe! We train our men!! LOL!

Congratulations to YC and the team! I'm so glad he got to play a lot finally! Maybe now they will see just how good he is and play him more. :)

Greg is like you with the bins. I'm like Papabear. LOL! I can always find stuff to hide in them. :) Uhoh! I think I need you to come here and purge and organize for me! You'd have a ball going through my apothecary chest and craft closet. LOL!

I hope your MIL is doing okay. It was really nice of you to make dinner for them. :) I know they appreciate it! :) All the food sounds so good! I'm not ready for spice yet, although I wish I was. :)

Congratulations on your favorite team winning! :)

And yes, when you don't feel well don't push yourself. I'm sure not. :) Can you believe TJ just texted me and asked how I was doing? WOW! :)

Morning ladies...

Susi, so happy you are back home and doing okay!!! Thank-you Greg for taking care of our Susi, so well! He's a good guy!

Glad you were not in excruciating pain and were smart enough to be checked out!!! As for those doctors...aaagghhhh... what the?!! Hoping seeing the one doc, works out!

Sorry about Truex, but glad Greg was okay with it!
Hope you enjoy your RESTING week Susi!! Take care!!!

Auntie Cyndie... the mum was a great idea and I'm happy to read you and Jimmy had a great time at the party! I'm sure she had a very happy birthday!

Hope the rest of your weekend was good and relaxing! Hoping more for a good Monday! May it go smoothly and quickly till it's time for you to leave! Have a good day!

We had a good, busy, but good weekend. Friday we got the stuff we needed to work on the coat closet, but never got to it. Papabear's mood was up and down, so I just figured I was one step closer to getting it done (hee hee).

Saturday was Little Cub's soccer game. They won 7 to 0! Little cub played lots of the game too, so that was nice! Since they were winning, he got to go in. After that... it was raining, so I went down stairs and worked on getting rid of stuff! I went through my craft stuff! Have a lot to donate to local schools. My boys are down with them, so no need to hold on to it all. I had two bins of craft stuff and got it to one! Then I went through my picture frames, got rid of lots of those too... donate! Lastly went through my stamps and stuff like that. I never use them, so picked the ones I will use and got all that cleaned out and reorganized! Felt good! Ended with three empty bins. Papabear was like now we can fill them with this and that... I was NO! Happy to have the space and less crap!!! hee hee

Sunday was church, food shopping, cleaning the house, and cooking! My MIL is going for hip surgery... or knee surgery???... today, so we made her some meals to help out. I made mashed potatoes, steamed carrots and we'll grill chicken for them to go with it. I also made an apple crisp for them, and me, for dessert! hee hee. We are doing two meals for my MIL. The second one, Papabear is going to make her meatballs, but that is next Monday. Lastly, we watched our Patriots win their game last night! WooHoo!

Mamabear's journey...
Exercise: will do my normal arm exercises, but I do have my period, so the craps have been bad this weekend. I'll try to do more, but will start with that!

Thankful for... a caring family, my church friends, my SP friends (Susi & Cyndie), and God!

What I'll get done today: just have a relaxing Monday! It's gloomy out, I'm a little crampy, and have a headache. So will watch the kidos, but relax when I can! (wink)

Have a good day ladies! emoticon

Thank you both again for the prayers. They say I could feel pain in the area once the meds they gave me there wear off. I'll try the IBU first if that doesn't work I'll get the Rx filled, but I hope it does, I hate taking pain meds. :(

I slept so much yesterday I was up in the night, but was able to get back to sleep after a few hours. When I rolled over to get back up, no pain but more of a heaviness in the right side. I figure that's the start of the meds leaving.

Greg is taking excellent care of me. I'm not sitting all the time though, but not up doing stuff quite yet. No cleaning this week! :)

Turned out a gall stone moved and was blocking the pancreas and that was a huge problem, they wanted to fix as soon as possible. They couldn't do it Sat. morning because the doc who was filling in for my regular one didn't think they'd do surgery on the weekend and allowed me to have a liquid breakfast. Turned out wrong. So they had to wait till Sunday morning. :(

The surgeon released me to Dr. Scoggins and he could make the decision when I leave. I had a liquid lunch used the bathroom and walked a little, so I should have been able to go by 1 at the latest, the clown didn't show back up till about 3:30. :(

I'm supposed to make an appt with him, Sielski and Custer (the surgeon) but Scoggins and Sielski are in the same block, so I'm thinking just making it with Sielski and asking him to share with Scoggins if that's okay with them. I don't want to go to 3 doctors over all this. :(

Cyndie, Truex finished way back, can't remember why though. Greg was okay with the guy who won though.

I'm glad you enjoyed the party. :) I've never met anyone who didn't love flowers unless they were allergic to them. :) And thank you so much for the goodie. :)

Remember a few years back when I was in the hospital for my pancreas? I'm thinking now it was the gallbladder causing that, and somehow the stone went back to place and just came back out again. The pain wasn't excruciating this time but it got worrisome.

I went to first med about it first, and they sent me to the hospital. I told Greg I needed to come home first. I wanted to jump on really fast and let you all know what was going on. :)

HUGS!

Susi, I'm so happy to hear that you're home from the hospital! That gall bladder problem seemed to come up out of nowhere! As you know, I don't have a Facebook page, but games sound fun!

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

After our "night on the town" last night, Jimmy and I had a quiet day today.

Hugs!

Susi, that's a great photo of your dad! I hope that he had a great time at the fair! We are praying that things go well for you at the ER!

Missy, I admit, I am a "fair weather walker". I doubt that I'll be walking to the bank any more. As for your dinner, I think you did well with your Asian dinner!

Jimmy and I are headed to a birthday party on our street tomorrow. One of our neighbors is turning 75. We're looking forward to it.

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Hugs!
